"I’m willing to take a risk anyways…So whatever you have here that’s edible, I’ll eat it. But for now, I’ll go on and freshen up in the bath. Ahe, I don’t want to stink up your ship with my smell." Shedding off the clunky hazmat suit that he had on, he sighed softly before making his way towards the bathroom. For a spaceship, this was rather…Nice. Very, very nice. In a sense, it did kind of remind him of home.
Before disappearing behind the bathroom door, he turned around to thank the brunette before giving her a small smile.
"Hey…Thanks for all your help. If it wasn’t for you, well…I wouldn’t be alive right now. And for your name, I’m going to call you…Misaki. I think it suits you well. And Misaki means beautiful blossom. Because to me, you are very beautiful…That, I won’t lie about. Also…My name is Saruhiko. Of course, you can call me whatever you like."
And with that, the metal door slid shut behind him once he was inside. Before that, he had managed to get a good glimpse at her face…And well. She had turned pink again. But. It wasn’t from anger. Rather than that…
She was embarrassed. How cute of her.
After about a good half hour or so, he stepped out of the bathroom in a clean change of clothes. It felt nice to finally take a bath after so long. Sighing in relief, he made his way over to where the dining room was located. There, a large feast of food had already been prepared and set out on the table. However…The food looked a bit strange. Everything was so colorful and came in weird shapes and sizes…
Was this what her people always ate on a daily basis?
"Wow…Did you make all of this here by yourself?"
She slightly nodded, sitting a bit closer to the other. If they were going to spend a lot of time together in the future, might as well start to get along a little. Now that Saruhiko had gotten to chance to take a bath, he didn’t look as bad as before. Misaki had to admit he was sorta…handsome even, a small blush spreading across her cheeks.
"H-Here…this is really good. It’s my favorite…" she muttered, holding out the fork in front of his mouth, trying to feed him.
Instead of giving the bluenette the time to lean closer, she had already pushed the food inside his mouth, facing away. Whenever the alien would get embarassed her actions tend to get a bit…impulsive. She doesn’t think aymore and does the weirdest and stupidest things.
"It’s good right!? Here…have some more!"
Without even letting Saru reply, she continue to stuff his mouth with more and more of the treats. Perhaps if he ate a whole lot, his health would get better soon too. She didn’t want him to be all weak and sick by the time they arrive at her planet. There’s no way her father would believe he’s a strong creature if he looks like a zombie.
Eventually Misaki stopped attack the other with all sorts of several dishes, finally giving him some time to actually chew and swallow all the food. Now she remained completely silent, twirling with her fingers.
"So…how does it taste?"

If it meant that he would be able to finally escape from this hell hole that was once home to him, Saruhiko was willing to go back to her planet with her. Though…Would this little plan of theirs really work out? He was a little sketchy about the idea the little alien had suggested.
"…Alright. It’s a deal then. But. Do you really think that your father is going to believe in something like so ridiculous that? What if the guy wants proof of my so-called "power"? I don’t have any special talents other than the sword fighting and combat skills I possess. I used to be an officer before all this chaos went on here on Earth. Things got tough and well…I lost my job, so yeah."
Rubbing at the back of his neck a bit, he sighed a little before standing back up. There was no way that he would be able to refuse her offer. The serious look on her face clearly said that he had no choice but to obey her. Seeing as how she said that she was of royal descent, she definitely had that commanding trait.
"Aha…Sorry to ramble on there. Give me a moment to pack up what I have."
At the very least, he wouldn’t have to stay here anymore. If the girl never came here in the first place…Chances are, he would have been dead right about now. Plus the air purifier within the shelter was beginning to keel over. There wasn’t anything edible to eat either…And not enough water to clean himself properly. Staying here would not end well for him.
Soon, Saru had just about everything he had wanted to take with him on the ship packed into a small suitcase. It was nothing important really. Just a few changes of clothes along with some old pictures and other random trinkets. He was really going to leave this planet for good…The planet where he spent most of his life growing up. Never did the male think that other planets with life had existed out there in the universe until now…
So what would this girl’s home planet be like? Hopefully the environment wasn’t too harsh. Would he even survive upon the arrival? That, he would find out once they got there. Placing his helmet back onto his head, he lifted up his suitcase before starting to walk out the door. His steps were a bit shaky and wobbly since he was still rather weak. But at the very least, he did have some hydration thanks to…To…
He didn’t even know her name at all. And to think that he didn’t bother asking her until now…That was a bit rude.
"…Okay. I’m ready to go. And lastly…I forgot to ask you something. What is your name? Aha…Do you even have a name to begin with?"
Misaki was about to speak up when she realized he wouldn’t be able to understand it anyway. Her own language and that of the humans had completely different sounds, making it pretty much impossible for the other to even pronounce her real name the right way.
"Well, it’s sorta hard to tell you, I doubt you’ll understand what I’m saying. If you want you can come up with a new name for me, one that’s popular among human girls! Something that would suit me maybe, I’ve heard that here on earth names actually have meanings. It’s different on my planet, parents just choose something that has a nice ring to it."
While talking, the brunette entered her space ship, the inside was actually quite big, it almost looked like an apartment inside a rocket. There was about everything you need to live, even divided in small, seperate rooms. “Just make yourself at home, this is actually a ship that doesn’t even need any steering. All I do is send the coordinates of the planet into the computer system and it will start flying on its own.”
She didn’t actually own this ship, it was her older brother who let her borrow it for a while. He was probably the only person on her planet who understood how she felt. If only her dad would too, it is wrong to try and connect two people who don’t truly love each other. Love…Misaki didn’t actually know what that was all about, there was very few of it left back at her home. They had gotten so caught up in keeping the system going that there was no space for emotions anymore.
"Ah, if you want to refresh yourself. There’s actually a bathroom here. Just take the second door on the left. You look like you could…use a bath."
Upon further inspection, the bluenette did look quite…horrible to be completely honest. His skin was very pale, almost white and because of the lack of food, he was no more than skin and bones.
"I can give you some food too though…I don’t know if humans can actually eat the stuff we eat. I don’t want to poison you."

Guh…That moment when you get up from sitting down for a while on your period and then it all rushes out like fucking Niagara Falls when you stand up.
I FEEL YOU. This happened to me yesterday out of the blue. My period had stopped I thought since I had no leaks for the biggest part of the day and then suddenly during the evening it started to pour down like crazy.

- "Now hold still…"
- "Stop screaming or I’ll use duct tape."
- "They had it coming, they were too friendly with you…"
- "No one will find us here."
- "You’ll be mine forever."
- "I’m going to kill him/her."
- "I don’t like people touching my things…”
- "Don’t bother to struggle…"
- "Did you think I wouldn’t notice?"
- "Your friends are too close with you… I don’t like it..”
- "It’s for your own good."
- "I won’t take no for an answer."
- "Keep running, I like the chase!”
- "It’d be a shame if your friend was hurt…"
- "If you promise not to scream, I’ll remove the gag."
- "Oops, did that hurt?"
- "You can’t just keep me here!"
- "I’m calling the police!"
- "Stop threatening anyone I talk to!"
- "You’re hurting me!"
- "W-what are you doing?"
- "Stay away from me!"
- "You’re being so clingy, it’s weird."
- "Let go of me!"
- "Someone is bound to come soon, they’ll notice!"
- "What are you planning to do with that?"
- "Did you think I wouldn’t notice you watching me sleep?"
- "You killed him/her!"
- "Don’t hurt me!"
- "Put that down!"
- "You’re scaring me…"
- "That’s a really bad joke, quit it…"

"I should…Be asking you the same thing." Taking the bottles that the girl had filled up with clean water for him, Saruhiko began to chug down a few. Too little water was bad but…But. Having too much at once wouldn’t be a good thing either. Eventually, he had slowed down with his drinking after finishing off two bottles and half of one. Finally…Fresh, crisp and clean cool water that wasn’t filthy with germs. He missed it dearly. Panting slightly, the man wiped away at the drops of water on his lips before speaking again.
"How come you’re…Not wearing a hazmat suit at all? Are you really an alien? You don’t seem like one…I mean. After all. Aside from those strange antennae on your head…You look just like any other human girl." Slowly, he moved one of his gloved hands up to touch one.
However…The female wasn’t all too happy with his action. With a loud hiss, the redhead quickly backed away from the man, her skin turning pink once more. What was so wrong with what he was doing? It wasn’t like he was going to hurt badly her or anything like that. Just touch the antennae a little bit. He was quite curious to see if they were real or fake.
"Relax. I mean you no harm in any way whatsoever." Screwing the cap back onto one of the water bottles he drank from, he sighed softly as he glanced up at the ceiling.
"…You want to know why I’m here? Well. It’s a long story. But let me just tell you that I am not here by my own choice. I got left behind…I got left behind by my own family."
The memories of that day had started to play throughout his mind once more. It was a cold, winter night. By then, all of humanity had been packed up and ready to go. There had been a number of settlements set up on Mars for them to stay in. Of course, things were still in development…But. At the very least, the atmosphere was decent and had proper conditions for life to thrive there.
The last of the citizens were just getting loaded onto the ship when Saruhiko’s father and mother had told him to grab something important from their home nearby. Family documents. Seeing as how he was quite loyal and faithful to his parents, he did as they said like always…Only to realize that he had been completely lied to. By the time he had gotten there, the ships had already departed and set course for Mars.
It turned out that there were only two remaining spaces left within the ships…
Which meant that somebody else had to stay behind here in this desolate wasteland and perish. His relationship with his parents was never all that good to begin with in the first place…So it didn’t surprise Saruhiko that they would just leave him behind like that. Yes, it did hurt him greatly. But at this point, he didn’t seem to care anymore.
"…And that’s why I’m here now. Heh. Goes to show you that I can’t trust anybody anymore…"
Misaki wasn’t sure why…but after hearing that story, she felt the need to give this human a hug. To be betrayed by his parents like that, somehow the brunette could perfectly relate to that. To her parents she was no more than the perfect canditate to bond with other wealthy families. To her father all he needed her for was to marry this rich guy and have a son that could claim the throne after his death. The brunette herself could care less about all of that, sometimes she wished to be born as a regular person, not as a princess. She’s gladly trade all the luxury for a peaceful life.
"Don’t worry…From now on, I’ll stay with you. I don’t really have a home to return to either. In a way our parents are similar, not really caring about their children all that much. I’m sure dad will realize sooner or later that I’m gone and of course he’ll send some guys to come and get me. However, that isn’t because he personally cares or anything. He just wants me to go and marry the guy he picked out…"
She slowly moved closer again, resting her head against the other’s chest. They stayed like that for a couple of minutes until the brunette finally spoke up again, covering her nose once more.
"…You smell." she bluntly stated, frowning while moving away. No surprise really, with the current conditions there was no way for the other to take a proper bath. As much as Misaki hated the idea of having to go back to her planet right now, she also understood that the bluenette wouldn’t survive much longer like this. Even with her powers, it was impossible to return earth to its previous condition, that was too much energy for one person.
"Let’s make a deal. I will take you along with me to my planet but I want something in return…Pretend you’re like some really powerful human who has enough strength to destroy a whole planet on your own! Even someone like my father is bound to be afraid of that! It’s the perfect way to make him actually blow off the whole wedding he has planned."
That’s it! Why hadn’t she thought of that earlier! It was the perfect plan. Just like everyone else, her dad did only have very limited knowledge about humans, he shouldn’t know they have little to no power. As long as they’re able to keep up with the lie long enough, Misaki should get the freedom she wants and the other gets to keep living on.
