An easy day of Rest (open to first 3 people)

Post  Erin Shade on Sat Apr 19, 2014 4:21 pm

Erin was sitting on a rock out by the water playing her ukulele and singing, "Falling slowly, eyes that know me, and I can't go back.." as she sang on her black and blonde hair was blown around by the wind. It was the first she had played that song in a few months, and just the music to it made a tear well in her eye.

The sound of a ukulele drew Alex towards the girl sitting on the rocks. Alex walked softly towards her, so as not to startle her but still be able to enjoy the music. The music obviously moved the girl who was creating it. Alex didn't want to interrupt because the girl looked so tranquil sitting there. The wind seemed to be playing a duet with her the way it carried her voice and played with her hair.
"That's really beautiful," she said, not loudly but loud enough for the girl to hear.

Erin was slightly startled when she heard another girl's voice, then she looked over her shoulder and saw the person that the voice had come from, "Thanks," she started smiling sheepishly, "How long have you been standing there?" she asked as she brushed her windblown hair out of her face.

"I've only been here for about two minutes, sorry if I startled you." The girl had a beautiful smile, "You're really amazing." she told the girl. "I wish I could make my voice sound that enchanting."

Erin paused for a moment and blinked, "Thanks, you really think my voice is enchanting?" she asked climbing off of the rock, "My name is Erin, what's you." she added holding out her hand.

"Hello Erin, I'm Alex daughter of Hermes" she said giving a little mock bow than straightened back up to shack her hand "Yes, I really do think your voice is enchanting, you almost brought a tear to my eye-- a hard thing to do, mind you-- with the emotion in your voice. That in itself is enchanting, also you looked so peaceful sitting there with the wind around you." The words flowed easily from Alex's lips, where talking to people was usually rather for her, this was surprisingly easy. Alex often lied, and telling the truth was usually hard for her. But standing there she knew that all she said was truth.

"Thank's!" Erin said with excitement, "I leaned it from my step dad..." she then looked out at the small waves that beat at the sand, "it's a song about longing, love, and sadness." Then she looked at Alex, "Love song that make others cry when I sing them." she said with a big grin.

"Well you're step dad is a very skilled teacher." she replied. "Would you mind if I listened to you sing a bit more?" She asked the girl, "If you don't want me too than that's ok."

Erin didn't even give a moment of thought, "Sure! Do you have any suggestions as to what I should play?" Erin asked as she strummed a chord then tuned her instrument.

Alex had a couple of ideas for songs. Alex pretty much only listened to indie (vampire weekend, Phoenix, Matt & Kim) or Dubstep, she wasn't sure if the girl would know which songs she would ask. So Alex chose a fairly popular song instead.
"Do you know Let Her Go, by Passenger?"

"Well, I don't know the chords to it but I've heard it once or twice....I don't really get out of camp that often." Erin replied with an awkward smile, "I'm not really allowed to leave, because I'm a child of one of the 'Big Three.'" she added.

"Well it's an honor to meet you Erin daughter of one of the big three." She said with a bit of a rare grin on her face, "I'm at camp year round too, but sometimes I get a little driven nuts without going to the city and getting a slice of mortal life..." she didn't mean to be rambling on, "I guess being the kid of the god of thieves and messengers has some perks, still electronics and such," she muttered something about monsters attacking "I can whistle a bit of it, if it would help refresh your memory. Or if you have a song that you particularly enjoy that would be fine too"

Eirn laughed a litte at Alex's first statment, "Zeus is my father," she started, "you can wistle it if you like, I'll try to catch on.....what key is it in?" Erin asked as she pulled a capo out of her pocket and sat back down on her rock.

"It's in D-Major" she replied and then began to whistle after a bit she started quietly singing the chorus, "Only know your lover when you let her go--" she stopped not realizing that she was signing out loud. "Sorry! You're probably way better at it than me!" She waited to see if the girl could catch on.

"You sound great, 'Only know you've been high if you're feeling low...'" Erin replied as she sand the next line hopping Alex would join her and continue to sing and pick her ukulele.

"Thanks," she quietly muttered at first and than joined in a bit louder by the end of the second line "Only hate the road when you're missing home," Alex really enjoyed singing with Erin. While Alex tended to stick to the the direct melody it seemed that Erin's voice added a beautiful harmony along side Alex.

"Only know you love her when you let her go, and you let her go." Erin and Alex's voices seemed to be joined by the lapping of the waves aginst the sand, and the wind almost carried the ukulele's sound through the air.

And as the duet came to an end, with a final "Let it go." Their notes a harmony carried a loft in the breeze. Alex leaned back in the sunshine. "That was wonderful, I haven't enjoyed singing that much since my mom and I used to when I was a very little girl. Thank you for granting me the pleasure. I have to go now, but this was wonderful. I look forward to seeing you again. Perhaps at the bonfire?"

Erin smiled, "No problem, and I'll be there, I'll probably be in the back...." she said with a shrug, "I'm always late, see ya later then." Erin pulled her hair out of her face and waved, that was the first time someone had appreciated her "unusual" instrument.

"Bye Erin, nice meeting you!" she half shouted while slinging her leather jacket over her shoulder and took off jogging towards the cabins.

As Erin watch Alex walk toward the cabins she seemed to forget the real reason she came out to the sound in the first place.

She then looked down at her instrument and began to strum another tune, "Are you sleeping...? Still dreaming, still drifting off alone." the longer she played the more she remembered why she was out on the beach, she came out there it rest and get away from the crazyness of life.
