Zamir’s eyes were wide open, stepping away to the corner, away from Akuji, “That's a really ugly piece of history.”
Akuji laughed, “Of course it is, I said it would be something you'd never forget. What's harder to forget than something you didn't like in the first place?” He patted the kid on the back.
Zamir frowned, “I'd rather not seen that.” he pulled away while trying to move his way towards the kitchen.
The reaper shrugged and leaned against the wall, “Doesn't matter anymore it's in the past, and you can’t unsee it. Ena’s finished chatting. She's walking over right now.” His head turned to the side as he said that, “And a corpse is also headed this way.” crossing his arms.
“A corpse?” the kid asked confused as Ena walked in and leaned over his shoulder, “My corpse. It can't rest, and eats the souls of the damn.” seeing his horrified expression she grinned, “I’m joking, she mostly just likes eating chicken nuggets.”
He seemed calmer at those words but still shaken from what the reaper had shown him. But the thought of a corpse eating nuggets amused him, “Really?”
She shrugged and amused him, “Yeah, it's an issue.” Stepping around and looking at Akuji she squinted her eyes at him, “Can I ask for the whereabouts of someone else?”
The reaper grinned and crossed his arms, shrugging, “Sure you can, but this ones going to cost you.”
Ena sighed, she knew this was coming, “What will it be?”
Akuji pulled out his phone, “As I said I'm on vacation, I'd like for you to take over my work for a week. I want an extra long vacation. It's been just too long with the same old job. Death wont give me a raise and the new managers a bitch.”
The kid gasped at his curse word, shaking his head, “If i say that I get a slapped.”
“Then don't say it. Now cover your ears, we’re not saying pretty words.” She told the kid in a slightly mocking tone yet slightly concerned as well, “So I take over your work for a week, that's it? Nothing else?”
“Nothing more.” He assured her, “I'll hand you the phone at the set time i'm supposed to get back to work and see you again in a week.”
“Alright, it's a deal. Now find this man.” She summoned an orb in her hands, and showed him the picture of the man she'd taken from the memories of the woman. As soon as the reaper had a good look the orb disappeared again.
Akuji was searching it up as the doors opened and corpse came walking in. A man tugging at her hand, “Miss you can't come in here. “
Corpse turned towards the man, her calm expression turned into a smile, her glasses slightly falling from her face, “I'm here for a visit.” she grabbed the hand that pulled at her own, looking the man dead in the eyes as his eyes dimmed down instantly, “You know about my visit, now sit in the corner. We can always just play another time.” she let out a laugh as she released the man and he walked away, turning to look at soul, “I found you.” Saying that in a gleeful voice as she walked over.
Ena nodded and turned back to the kid, “I’ll be back in a couple hours. I have to finish what I told you I'd do. So just… run along like children do.” She looked at the reaper again, “Do you have a location for me now?”
He nodded and corpse looked at them interested, “He’s in his little apartment, it's a few blocks from here.” The reaper said, “I’ll join you, this should be a nice little spectacle.” He looked at the kid and waved, “Like the people say, stay in school and don't do drugs.”
Ena narrowed her eyes at him, “so many things you could have said… well it's not like you said something bad. Let's just go.” she looked at her corpse, “Glad you answered quickly Enaya… I'll need a hand with someone.”
She saw Corpse eyes slightly turn to look at the kid, “I’d lo-”
“Not with him. We’re going to deal with something else.” Ena said as she tugged at Enaya to look away from the kid.
Enaya laughed cheerfully unchanging, “I’d love to help. Even if you asked me to get rid of death, I'd do my darndest to make it happen.”
Akuji raised a brow, “And if I asked you to kill death, would you? I'd really like a permanent vacation.”
Enaya turned, pulling down the glasses she wore, “I might do it too just for the fun of it. But I might confuse death with you, who knows. Death is anything and everything, what do we really know? But you just gotta ask, it would be a really fun game, and I'm sure you'd agree.”
Ena shook her head and stood behind Enaya acting like a shadow, “Enough chatting, let's get to it.” She could still see the kid was lingering around, even as they walked out of the place. He seemed to stare in her direction only turning away briefly when he was approached by another kid.
Ena turned away after that, following corpse around she’d not called its name in quite a long time. Enaya, the name given to them when they used to be a single person. She’d shortened hers to Ena to differentiate each other. Something about being called Enaya, made it feel like they were still one and everything was perfectly normal.
She left corpse with that name because unlike her corpse wouldn't give a damn about any names. She could be called shit or trash and not a hair in her head would move. Enaya was free from any prejudice, she didn't care about anything. She just followed whatever soul said with no questions.
This didn't mean Ena used her for anything and everything, no she still treated Enaya as a part of herself, just one she could remove at any time. Yet at times even for her the words that could come out of corpse's mouth would really concern her.
Akuji wrapped a hand on Enaya’s shoulder, “So are you free this weekend.”
“Of course I am.” Enaya tells him with a smile, “Why do you ask? Do you want to play with me?”
He grinned and nodded, “I definitely want to play.”
Ena changed positions and stood behind him, “I don't like what you're insinuating. You're too old for anyone.”
Akuji shrugged and stepped away from Enaya, “I’m only joking… but if you ever chang-”
He was pushed from behind by Ena, “That’s enough. Let's just find this man and not see each other until you have to hand me that phone of yours.”
He chuckled and agreed without complaint, “Of course… Now a little question? What are you gonna tell the kid when he finds out what you did to the lady?”
“I’ll probably deny it… it all depends on my mood.” Ena told him quite honestly. It didn't particularly matter if the kid found out, she wasn't even sure she’d teach him anything. Yet here she was dealing with something that was clearly not her problem or her concern.
