Mara hands Noah her grandmother's pendant.

mara
Good. I was starting to worry you didn't care.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
I see where you're going with this.

Yesterday when I was ready to blame my should-be-dead stalker for the creepy doll-in-underwear-drawer incident.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
Point.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
Yesterday when I woke up to find that I'd been sleepwalking.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
Well, we're further than we were yesterday.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
Not...really.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
(cheerfully)
But most of the first ones were all to the Egyptian goddess. That's something.

Mara sighs.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
Nine million or so. Give or take.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
How many hits did you say the feather thing got?
happycola23 added an action in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
Noah shuts the laptop.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
Indeed. Nothing there, either.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
Did you try 'feather and dagger symbol' together?
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
Opened another tab already but alas, said search has generated not much.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
What about dagger comma symbol?
happycola23 added an action in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
Noah starts typing again.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
Anyway, if the soul was good and pure, congratulations, you've earned a passage into paradise.
happycola23 added an action in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
He shifts out of the way so Mara can see; she makes a face. It's definitely weird.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
So, the preponderance of hits for 'feather symbol meaning' bring up the Egyptian goddess Ma'at. Apparently she judged the souls of the dead by weighing their hearts against a feather; if she deemed a soul unworthy, it was sent to the underworld to be consumed - by this bizarre crocodile-lion-hippopotamus creature, it seems.

Noah sits at his desk and opens his laptop, googling.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
I get the picture.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
Don't even think it.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
I know, but -
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
We are not related.
happycola23 added an action in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
Noah stops mid-stride, and turns slowly.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
I was just going to say they remind me of the symbols on a family crest.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
I just saw it, knew it was my mother's, and wore it because it was hers. But you're right, it could mean something - especially since there's two.

Noah gets up and Mara hands him his necklace.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
I never bothered to think about it in that context.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
What?
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
Fuck.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
And they're not identical; they look homemade, judging slight imperfections. And the design is a little - it's a little crude, right? It reminds me of the block printed illustrations you find in old books. And the symbols -
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
They are indeed.
happycola23 added an action in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
Noah leans forward and looks.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
They're mirror images.
happycola23 added an action in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
Noah hesitates for a fraction of a second and then lifts the black cord over his head and puts it in Mara's hand. She studies the two up close. They look the same, but something's different.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
Can I see yours?
happycola23 added an action in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
Mara examines the small silver pendant.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
And hid it.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
Okay. So your mother and my grandmother had the same jewelry.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
What we SHOULD be thinking about is why the hell the same rather unusual pendant would be in my mother's chest of silver and sewn into your grandmother's creepy doll.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
But you said you've never been sick -
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
(bored)
I cut myself, and there was no trace of it the next day. Anyway, it has to be acquired. Otherwise we would have noticed long before now.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
How did YOU realize you could heal?
happycola23 added an action in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
She leans forward.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
mara
Wait.
happycola23 added dialogue in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
noah
And they're still here. As for myself, my ability couldn't have gone unobserved as a kid; I had to get shots and things like everyone else. Surely someone would have noticed I could heal, no?
happycola23 added an action in "8" on 03/14/2014 [view]
Mara shrugs. Possibly.
