Up so high, and so quick the ground would hit if he were to fall. How interesting would it be for the other to suddenly fall from the distance he was at. Gravity would have sunk in and he’d most likely go splat. Pitch would have loved to hear the bones cracking and smashing from the sudden pressure, but that of course was all going to have to come a little later on. ” Joeseph. How is it you can see me? ” He questioned curiously, floating along around him with a sly smile.
"Because you’re like… There…" What was this guy? He scared the shit out of Joeseph for sure, and he didn’t like it. He looked at the hands still wrapped around him. "Is there people who don’t?" he wasn’t smart enough to understand what the man was. He believed in fear, as well as an embodiment of fear, both of which were Pitch.
Ah, but I do..”The Nightmare King stated, for it was like a single thread, if tug than it would either snap or hold to the weight. Fingers moved around the air, sand slipping from the fingers and moving along towards the almost falling boy’s neck, wrapping around. ” Now…what might your name be..? ” he questioned softly to him.”
Joeseph bit his lip. It was a long way down, and he was gonna fall if this guy wanted it. “Joeseph.” he told the man, hoping by some miracle he wouldn’t fall and die like he felt he was gonna.
“Thank you,” she said, nodding curtly. Before she began walking, she was quick to remember her manners, adding, “um, I don’t believe I.. I got your name.”
"Joseph, and you?" he asked, putting his hand out for her.
“I’m not a child,” Alice protested, quirking an eyebrow at the stranger. “I think they can decide for themselves if they don’t want me.” She crossed her arms, flipping her hair delicately as she furrowed her brows at the man.
"Okay, okay kid calm down." he took a step back. "Sorry look. It’s that way." he pointed to the direction.
“What’s the point in sitting here, doing nothing? Boring. I wonder if there are any acting gigs around here… Might as well spend my down time researching or something.”
"Acting gigs?" Joseph looked the girl up and down. "You’re insane, there’s literally nothing around here kid. Sorry." he shrugged. "I mean there’s like a studio, but they’re not for kids."
Where would the fun be in doing that? If the boy could see him, he’d be at least seemingly smart enough to at least figure a way around being cornered on the edge. Of course Pitch was not about to allow the boy to get away from where he was cornered with life and death. ” Now why would we want to do something like that? The thrill is when life is on the edge. “The last part was emphasized with Pitch suddenly appearing in front of the boy’s face, staring him down with a large grin.
Joseph almost jumped back before catching his footing again. This guy was batshit insane, and it would scare him no matter what to fall off the edge. “I uh. I don’t really like a thrill.” Joseph said.
How about we play a game, how long is the floor from the rooftop. ” Pitch mused out, his body now rising from the place he was sitting at and moving towards him. ” Or perhaps…let’s see what you fear the most. ” Now the Nightmare was circling around, moving into the air and right behind the boy, trapping him with either choice of falling or allowing Pitch to play his game on him. His fear was so delicious, though not certainly the most appetizing, but it was refreshing to Pitch.
"Uh…" Joseph looked at the Nightmare King and nearly took another step back before realizing there was nothing there. "Um… Okay." he said. "Can I just uh… Not be on the edge?" he asked. He had survived so long in his life that he was sort of afraid of dying, but he assumed everyone was, so it really wasn’t his biggest fear. It was probably in the top five, but not his biggest.
Seems like the boy was starting to realize something. Oh, the fun Pitch could have now with the teenager. It wasn’t often you had one of them seeing a creature from the spirit world. ” Now, now. It’s nice nice to curse. “Pitch purred out, his body seeming to be shrouded by the shadows. The nightmare stepped closer, it’s hoof stomping down onto the ground, slightly sliding down into pavement like it wasn’t solid. ” Shall we play a little game boy? “
"Um… What kind of game?" Joseph asked standing up, taking a step back. If he took another step back, he was likely to fall off the roof, so he took a step to the side. He really didn’t like the vibe he was getting right now. This man creeped him out. A lot.
Hazel readjusted the nubbins in her nose and gave a politely awkward smile and wave back. After some consideration, she decided it would be polite to say something. “Hi, I’m Hazel.”
"Joseph." he said, putting his hands in his pockets. "Nice to meet you Hazel."
