Strong Finish by Reyniki Strong Finish by Reyniki
PART 1
Tune by Reyniki

Arias's thoughts rushed around trying to find the answer to this feeling.

    'Did Xenox dance this well before?'
    'No, he cannot match the beat of a song if he tried.'
    'Someone else then? Who? Where? When?'
    'I don't remember.'


    Barry ended strong but the song was only half done. He was wheezing and after holding his finishing pose for a second or two, he fell on his hands and knees, coughing. "Shit," He gasped. His body wasn't sweating since Xenox himself was a very durable person in physical activity, but the parasites were drained from moving the body's limbs around so much. Barry closed his eyes, trying to hold on for a little longer before passing out. "S-So, what do you think?"

    Arias was still recovering from the beautiful scene that happened in front of him. He cleared his throat and pulled on his shirt collar, "is it me or is it suddenly really hot in here?" That earned a weak laugh from Barry. Arias smiled, resisting the urge to go up and hug him. It wasn't Xenox, but Barry still stole his heart with his performance.

    "That was amazing. Where did you learn to dance like that?" Arias asked though a second after he did, he realised how stupid that question sounded. Parasites? Learning to dance from somewhere? As if anyone is willing to teach creatures like Barry. But Arias needed to know, if there is an answer.

    Barry glanced over at Arias and sneered. He didn't say anything.

    "Well?" Arias prodded further. Barry looked like he knew something. The doctor still had the strange feeling that this performance was something he's seen before. Familiar.

    Barry lied down on his back, his hands placed on his chest as he closed his eyes. He didn't say anything for the longest time. Impatient with Barry's attitude, Arias asked again, making his voice a bit more firm to show he was serious. The doctor didn't know why he wanted to know so badly but he did. Barry opened an eyelid ever so slightly to take a look at Arias's face, then uttered some words. Words in an old, foreign language. Words that no one else but Arias understood.

    It was a piece of a song that Arias had long forgotten.
    "That night, we met in the golden ball, strangers yet acquaintances."

I wanted to write more about this story to input more detail about Barry but it got a bit long. I drew a second picture to split the story up so it could be a bit more attractive to read lol.

Enjoy~

Yiiiss, Barry is more than meets the eye ;D
Though come to think of it, "Barry" must be the least mysterious name ever but hey, it's a good contradiction lolol
