[[ooc;; slightly forward dated to morning~ At least, morning in my time zone. >>;; Replies to come in the morning, most likely.]]
[Back to normal. It's a good feeling, though Temari's still having a little trouble reconciling some of the lingering emotion, if not the memories. To honestly believe that her brother was nothing but a monster...
It still hits her. Like a punch to the gut. And those memories... She'll never forget those, even if they never actually happened.
Every time she thinks of her behavior over the last couple weeks, she has to swallow back a groan of embarrassment. It wasn't so bad, she supposes, but still... Way to make an impression. She owes some people apologies.
Sort of. She might not be feeling that guilty. Even so, there are a couple people she really should speak to. She doesn't filter, mostly because in one case she's not exactly sure who to filter to.]
I spoke to someone called Xander a couple weeks ago. If he's listening, I want to talk to him.
[Pause.] Katara. [Eh. Now what? She hates this.] You should come back over here for tea again sometime.
[She's not-apologizing, okay? This is bad enough; she doesn't want to think about what she might have to say to Shikamaru.
Temari is actually out and about during the morning, after she leaves her voice messages. Things haven't been normal in awhile and she barely had a chance to explore the town before the Malnosso took her -- then she spent two weeks barely leaving her apartment.
Time to do a little recon. She'll be ducking into shops, picking up some groceries, even going into the edge of the woods here and again. By lunchtime, she'll be hanging out at the fountain, eating a small lunch, and a bag of supplies beside her.]
