Moonrise kingdom

At night the predators came out. Which was exactly why he had grabbed his bow and quiver full of arrows. He wanted to make himself some new clothing, so he needed pelts and furs. It would be easier to find one if he could catch it out hunting. Focused on their prey only they would pay no attention to him. Apollo walked out of his house and in the direction of the woods. Before disappearing into the forest though, he could see his brother lay in the meadow to his left. The field was lit up brightly because of the moon and the amount of stars in the sky tonight. Which made him easy to spot, at least with his enhanced vision. The Healer walked over to the other Commander, making sure to not walk as quietly as usual so he would be alarmed of his approach. ”A good night for stargazing?” He asked him when he arrived, looking down on Mercury as he spoke to him.

And no it's not a phase 'cause it happens all the time

Start over, check again, now tell me what you find


The night hadn’t been happening for too long, but it felt like he had been laying in this field for ages. Not that he found it annoying, on the contrary, he quite enjoyed it. The longer he lied here, the more he started to enjoy it. But he had always enjoyed looking at the sky and remembering stories he was told about the stars. Lately, those stories had found their way into his head, transforming into something he would much rather believe than the bleak words he was fed. No, he had quite the imagination of his own.

What he hadn’t expected was for Apollo to join him, or well, to talk to him. Mercury had his hands underneath his head, which he now lifted to look at his older brother. The younger Commander smiled and nodded, putting his head back on his hands again. ‘’I sure am!’’ He spoke enthusiastically as his eyes gazed over the sky again. ‘’You want to join? Tonight is the most perfect night.’’ He wouldn’t mind company. It was more a question if Apollo would survive his never ending flood of words he always seemed to have prepared.

Of course he could have expected the young one to be out here tonight. It had been his routine for centuries now. He would be more surprised to not find him in the field. It was one of those traits that screamed ‘Mercury’. As much as music and poetry did for him. Tonight he would break that routine though. Normally he would leave the other Commander at peace in his thoughts, but he knew his brother had been struggling a bit lately. The healer wanted to make sure those peaceful evenings weren’t interrupted by bad thoughts. ‘’You want to join? Tonight is the most perfect night.’’ Mercury proposed. He looked up at the position of the moon for a second. He had some time. ”For a bit, sure”, He therefore said. He put down his weapons and soon joined the other in the grass, copying his position. ”I need to go hunt tonight”, He explained why he couldn’t stay for too long. It was also a way to get a conversation going without immediately expressing his worries.

The grass had been dry the past days as it had been warmer than usual. The warmth usually quickly vanished after the sun went down, but tonight it was lingering around, like it wanted to make the young commander comfortable as he gazed above, to a sky he knew he could never reach. If only one day..

To his surprise, Apollo decided to join him, which only let Mercury feel a little warmer inside. Someone wanted to spend time with him, which meant fun! The Commander explained he still had to hunt tonight, and Mercury nodded in understanding. ‘’Theres a nest of cats at the northern border of the forest.’’ He spoke softly, implying that he rather didn’t want the other to go there. But he also knew Apollo was no Minerva and probably wouldn’t harm them. A sigh was relieved from his lips. ‘’It’s a great night for hunting as well, indeed.’’ He continued to mumble, letting his eyes trail the skies again.

Every other night he would have declined the request. Even though he had eternity, he didn’t like to waste precious hours. A hunt could take a while. Finding a suitable prey was the most challenging part of the task. He wouldn’t just kill any animal. He chose them by age, how healthy they looked, and how close they were to the village. The Commander tried to keep all those criteria in mind while sneaking through the dense forest. Natural selection at its finest. So of course he wouldn’t try to kill the cats. ”Fear not, brother. They are safe from me”, He reassured him with a soft smile, after which he looked up again. It was indeed a good night for stargazing. ”Would you like to come?” He asked casually. Then they would both be doing an activity that wasn’t in their usual pattern tonight.

He wondered what kind of stories the sky would bring him tonight. Would they be happy? Would they tell history or would they be disappointing? The last thing could never happen as Mercury was hard to disappoint these days. He disappointed himself the most, so the outside world did have a challenge if they wanted to make things worse.

But for now, he at least had some company and he had some time to get away from his thoughts. The past weeks had been hard but he managed and as far as he knew, nobody had noticed. Which was a good thing. He smiled as his brother promised him that he wouldn’t hurt the cats. But that smile faded as the proposal to hunt together came. Mercury frowned for a moment. ‘’You know I am the loudest of us all. I would scare everything away. And that would be a good thing because then you wouldn’t hurt animals but then again it would be a bad thing because then I would ruin the hunt and I would ruin everything because that would mean no food and no leather. Ah, you get what I mean.’’ There he went again. Gods Mercury, you really need to get your words straight.

There were periods where the Guardians would kind of avoid each other for a while. In those times they all needed a break. Not only from their duties but also from each other. Immortality had a strange impact on the mind. When they spent too much time together, fights were bound to happen. Not everyone was as sane as they once had been. One wrong word and anger could disrupt the peace that clouded the village. He felt like they were getting closer to each other again though. It was obvious that change was coming and it brought them together. Duty called and they had to answer, as they had promised the Mother. So he wanted to spend some time with the other Guardians, to strengthen their bond again.

Asking Mercury to go hunting was such an attempt. Though the younger Commander wasn’t as enthusiastic. ”There will be other nights where I can go and hunt. Tonight I want to spend my time with you”, He replied with a simple shrug. If they wouldn’t go hunting, then they could stay in this field all night. ”Tell me about the stars again”, He said, on a softer tone than before. Sometimes.. He too liked to escape from this earth for a bit.

This had been a strange encounter. Mercury favored Apollo over most of the guardians, strangely he was still beneath Minerva, and their talks somehow always calmed him down. He appreciated how the guardian always seemed to cheer him up and take time for him even when he was a pain in the ass and couldn’t and wouldn’t stop talking.

The fact that the other Commander suddenly wanted to spend time with him, was new to him and Mercury wasn’t sure if he could trust it. But it was nice that Apollo told him he wanted to spend time with him. Unbeknownst to the younger guardian, a smile appeared on his lips as Apollo asked him to tell about the stars again. ‘’There are many with us tonight,’’ He started serious as if he suddenly had turned very wise. ‘’Each carry a different story and each carry a different meaning. It all depends on their constellation and how long they have been with us.’’ The vampire got into his element as his eyes fixated on a set of stars as if he suddenly could see the lines between them.

His intentions might not be as pure as he made it sound, but it was important to him the five Commanders could work as a unit when they had to. Which could be hard, considering the fact they had been living together without Ceres’ guidance for so long. She was the one person that really connected them. They were all better versions of themselves when they could feel the presence of the Mother. He wasn’t offended when Mercury declined his request. Instead, he decided to stay here for a bit longer. Tomorrow night he could go out and try again. For now, he listened to the other Commander talk about one of his favourite subjects. ”Do you think some look out for each of us specifically?” He asked him. It would be cool to have a Guardian of his own, a Star Guardian for each of the Commanders to make sure they were fit to fulfil their duties.

Every star was different. Sure, they all looked like each other and sometimes shone as bright as every other. But they were all different, just like every fingerprint looked the same and yet had a whole different path carved into your skin. It took time to notice how different every star was, but once you did you could notice patterns and stories. And it was because of that reason Mercury gazed at the night every time. Because patterns and stories changed. And he hoped he would too one day.

But for now, he was stuck wondering if that was ever going to happen. Apollo asked him a question Mercury could only take seriously and it took him a few moments of silence to reply, carefully thinking about his answer. ‘’That could very much be the case. And it would explain why some of them vanish over time. They no longer need to look after someone, their time is done and they are needed somewhere else.’’ The young Commander mused. It would be a beautiful explanation why Elliot suddenly had disappeared. But it couldn’t explain why he had come back.

After centuries of existing even Apollo didn’t know everything. There were a lot of subjects he had never studied, simply because he had other matters to focus on. If he wanted to, he could though. He had all the time in the world. As long as the subject was slightly interesting, he could listen for hours to someone teaching him about it. That was exactly what he was doing now. He had many questions regarding the stars. Or more observations he had made and now wanted to discuss with his younger brother. He nodded when Mercury shared his thoughts on it. ”Do you think we will ever vanish?” He then dared to ask, changing the topic. It was another thought that sometimes occupied his mind. Because he had his insecurities too. Where the other Guardians could sometimes leave the village, he could not. As long as the Children needed him, it was his duty to keep them healthy and comfortable.

How long would it take for a star to realise it no longer needed to guard anymore? How long until a star would vanish before they would appear somewhere else and watch over someone again? And what let a star decide that they needed to guard that specific person? Did it count for animals as well? The questions popped up in his head, one after another. And it didn’t stop. Apollo had opened a door in his mind Mercury hadn’t even known he had, and now he couldn’t stop thinking.

Pondering the questions going through his head, he almost forgot his brother had asked him another one. But when the realisation hit, everything in and around him went quiet. Would they vanish? And when would that be? The Commander bit his lip, uncertain, maybe a little scared before giving his opinion. ‘’I believe this life doesn’t last forever. No matter our blessing.’’ His voice was softer as usual, a little hesitant perhaps. ‘’As stars fade, so will we one day.’’ Oddly poetic and at the same time a little creepy. Mercury didn’t want to think about death, but it was also the thing that kept him going most of the time. Living life before death would tell him his time was up.

The elder Guardian didn’t really see his job as a burden. He loved making himself useful, doing the task the Mother had trusted him with. It gave him a sense of accomplishment when he could heal a Child after they had been wounded. A purpose he would continue to fulfil until the end of days. If that day would ever come, that was. Because he believed they would live forever. Unless the whole earth was suddenly doomed, that was. Perhaps one of the stars would one day come down and destroy the planet they were living on. Mercury had another opinion, and he listened to it carefully. ”What if their light is just dimmed, but they are still there?” He asked the next question. ”Like the Mother is still with us as well, even though we can not see her”, He explained. Because the Light of the Mother was still guiding him, he knew that for sure.

This conversation was getting oddly existential and Mercury wasn’t sure yet if he liked it or rather strayed away and talked about the more fun stuff. Like how every star carried his or her own different story and combined with another star or constellation, altered the whole ordeal. But that might not be something Apollo was interested in. And for tonight, Mercury could respect that. But only for tonight.

The younger commander shifted a bit, stretching his legs to get a little more comfortable. In the time he had been human, he would have fallen asleep by now. Carried to sleep by the guidance of the stars who told him everything was fine and that he deserved to rest. But now none of that could happen anymore. He had received a blessing that sometimes felt more like a curse. The young one thought about the words Apollo spoke, biting his lip again. ‘’It is a possibility..’’ Mercury put out his thoughts carefully. He wasn’t sure if he wanted to continue down this path, not wanted to be confronted by his own hauntings. ‘’Or maybe they just need a vacation from all the stupid stuff we are doing.’’ He spoke a little more lightly with a shrug. Because Mercury wouldn’t be surprised if his own guardian star would do that. A lot.

Unexpectedly he had pushed this conversation into a direction the other wasn’t quite comfortable with. It took him a while before he realised it. His mind sometimes just went there, but the Healer was not bothered by it. He had gotten used to it by now, and he wasn’t as easily disturbed by it anymore. Though he noticed how Mercury directed the topic away from the subject again by making a small joke. He accepted it without questioning. Last thing he wanted, was to make his brother sad. ”I can imagine”, He joked back, a teasing yet friendly tone in his voice. In the same way he had gotten used to the dark thoughts creeping up on him from time to time, he knew how to deal with a sad Commander too. ”Tell me that one’s story”, He said, nodding at a group of stars right above him that were shining way brighter than the ones around them.
