It had taken a while to convince her. But it was needed - sorely needed. Whatever hell Sage was going through, well, she needed something to remind her that life could be good again. That sure, the pain would never be gone, nor the trauma. But that did not stop you from enjoying other things that life had to offer, if only you were willing to give it the opportunity. That's what he had learned, in the months after the rape.

So Evan had somehow managed to convince his friend to come with him, just a fun day somewhere - no drama, no talk of anything. Just old plain fashioned fun. However, he wanted it to be a surprise to her - so he'd showed up at her house, then cajoled until she acquiesced to wrap a scarf around her eyes. They talked, mostly variations of 'Can I take it off?', until they arrived at the place.

If she paid attention, it would undoubtedly be easy to guess where they were. Still, Evan stood behind her and undid the knot on the scarf. "You need to hang around live animals for one!" he exclaimed, smiling widely as Sage got her first glimpse of the petting zoo. There were all kind of smallish animals - well, at least inoffensive animals. The staff probably had the dominion, so nothing shouldn't go amiss, hopefully.

It was the first time Sage had been out of the apartment for anything besides work or groceries in a while. If it had been anyone else, she never would have agreed to put on a blind fold and accompany them to a mystery location. But she could trust Evan, and she probably did need a day off from moping and watching TV.

The sounds of yelling children and the smells of dirt and farmyard feed met her as they got to the location. She had asked Evan over and over where they were going, but she didn't really want to know. The moment he had tied that scarf around her head, she felt her old yearning for adventure spark back up. The flame needed some fanning, but it was there none the less.

The fabric fell away from her face and Sage squinted her eyes. Shielding them, she looked around and laughed. "A petting zoo?" she asked incredulously, still laughing a little. "And my animals are just fine, thank you very much!" Grinning, she lightly punched Evan on the shoulder. As usual, she had her own pet of sorts with her; a small raven with a broken neck that never seemed to bother it sat comfortably in her grey bag. Orcus, as usual, sat on her shoulder. He wasn't fond of being around this many children. They had a habit of wanting to touch his feathers, the little idiots.

"Okay, this is actually pretty cool," Sage said as they moved toward the zoo. She could hear the animals now, bleating or whatever sound they made. "How'd you know I loved animals?" Sage asked jokingly. She stroked Orcus's head absentmindedly.

He gave a fake yelp of pain as she hit him, smile wide. It was a rather wondrous change, how she had managed to *smile* as she realized where she was. That smile made him feel happy, and perhaps a little hopeful. Did it mean her nightmare was over? Well, not that a thing like that could ever be over - she would carry it with her for the rest of her life. But this might signify that there was a light at the end of the tunnel.

"Oh you know, I had a vague idea after seeing your undead Snow White act." he joked. They walked inside, Evan having bought the tickets previously. He'd never had any pets - his grandmother wasn't particularly fond of anything other than fish and even then she complained about cleaning the tank. But he liked them well enough, and so followed Sage into whatever enclosure she saw fit to wander into.

The goats, however, the goats were a problem. One of them took a particular dislike to him and started headbutting him. Thankfully, it was a kid so there were no horns yet. But still, after the fifth headbutt right at his buttocks, he decided enough was enough and exited the enclosure while an attendant restrained the murderous little shit. "Why don't we over to the llamas? I mean, at most they'll only spit on me, right?"

Sage laughed again. It felt strange, like she hadn't been happy for years. It hadn't been that long really, but it was the first major sadness she'd had for any extended amount of time. Crying over an ex or an animal that wasn't animated anymore didn't compare in any way to the grief she felt over this one. It still hung in the back of her mind, even here, surrounded by children and animals.

Killing a man didn't go away so easily.

Sage shook the thoughts away and headed over to the closest animals she could touch. It was a bunch of goats making noise and playing. There were little tables and places for the goats to climb. Sage made her way towards one that stood in the middle of the picnic table, looking proud and defiant. "He's king goat!" she said, rubbing his head and laughing.

When Evan left, Sage followed. She hadn't even really noticed the one headbutting him; she'd been too distracted by the king goat. "Yeah, that sounds awesome! I don't think I've ever seen a llama up close and everything. The county fair had a petting zoo like this, but it mainly had like barnyard animals." Excitedly, she followed the arrow shaped sign that pointed towards the llamas.

They made their way over to the Llama enclosure, while Kordran made biting remarks about Evan's defeat against a goat. The young man blushed, slightly ashamed of herself. "Yeah, Llamas aren't that common. At least I don't think they are..." He mumbled, if only to fill the silence between them. There could be no awkwardness, no lengthy silences - lest her mind start to wander and go back to the dark place.

Finally they arrived to the enclosure, and were immediately let inside. Evan proceeded towards a black Llama, who was drinking water, its back towards him. Slowly he approached and stepped around so the creature could see him, and once it raised its head and looked at him quizzically, he reached forward to caress it.

Kordran choose that moment to materialize next to him. "I don't think I've ever touched a Llama before!" The demon exclaimed, obviously excited. But his appearance had been met by a distraught braying from the creature, who proceeded to close its eyes and fall towards the ground.

"Oh fuck." Shit. Was it dead? It didn't seem to be breathing - it's torso wasn't moving...

Sage was immediately enthralled by the group of llamas. She had been busy petting a very shaggy one near the mouth of the enclosure when she heard Kordan yell excitedly. Making a face at the llama she had been petting, Sage laughed and looked up at Evan just in time to see the black body in front of him slump to the ground.

Her eyes widened and she rushed over. The llama laid in an un-moving pile of curly black fur. "Oh, my god." Sage said, staring at the creature, then at Evan. "It's dead." It was strange how she could tell something like that at a glance. Maybe it came from years of reanimating dead bodies, but after a while she could just tell. Looking at it again, Sage was suddenly smiling. "Oh my god, it's dead!" Now her tone was excited as she looked at Evan.

Without thinking, the creature was already getting back up. Sage took a step towards it and pet it's nose. The body was still warm to the touch. "How can we get him out of here, do you think?" she mused, still petting the too still creature. Sage looked around and noticed the other llamas seemed less comfortable around them. Damn, she didn't know how llamas were supposed to move. Watching the other, nervous creatures, Sage pondered how they would somehow sneak out with a llama. She couldn't just put him in her bag.

He'd been afraid that her mind would somehow make a bad connection - that the death of the Llama would bring forth the memories of the man whose life she'd taken. That she would break down again and he'd have to rush her back home, apologizing a million times for the stupid idea of an outing.

But Evan hadn't expected her surprise at the Llama's death to turn into a squeal of delight. Even less to see the damnable thing stand up and Sage petting it as if it was the most common thing in the world. He let his mouth fall open in surprise, staring at her like she was mad. But her question truly made him turn around to look at Kordran, who was only smirking at them both.

"Get him out?" he repeated, in disbelief. "Why... where would you keep it? Holy shit Sage!" There was only one thing he could try, but he wasn't sure he wanted to give the madwoman this idea. "You could ride it out, but you would get caught... Unless... Unless I turned us Invisible?" But somebody must have seen them come in - and somebody would miss the Llama, so they probably would never be able to show their faces here again.

Evan sighed. How the hell had his day gone from enjoying a petting zoo to breaking out a zombie Llama from it's enclosure?

Sage's face lit up at the idea. She looked at Evan, a wide grin still on her face. "Do you think we could do it?" she asked in a low, conspiratorial way. Laughing a little, she looked around again, studying the way the other animals moved. The llama started to shift a little, matching the the other creatures.

Then she looked back at Evan. "Let's do it! We should probably be invisible when we get on the llama, so no one notices." Aside from her smile, Sage was dead serious. She was not going to leave the petting zoo without this llama, one way or another. If she had to race it out and shoot a hole in the fence, then she was going to.

He could not believe this was happening. He'd gotten into some dangerous stuff and even some weird stuff during his years as an operative for the White Rabbit (a part of his life that Sage did not know yet, thankfully). But trying to steal a fucking dead Llama had to take the cake. Still... Sage was happier, way happier than he'd seen her these last few weeks.

So Evan sighed and frowned, gathering his courage before saying. "Yes, I can do that. It won't last long, though, we need to be very quick." It was true - his dominions weren't particularly strong. But he had three of them that could be used to hide from the sight of others.

First, he placed his hand on both Sage and the Llama. "Oh, just... you won't be able to see it either... so better trust your hands." With that warning, he turned all three of them invisible, ready to escape the zoo. He helped Sage mount the animal, and making a face (that would thankfully go unseen due to the Invisibility) he mounted the dead animal as well.

"Hey, where did Frumpy go?!" That was one of the caretakers... and also, that was a stupid name for an animal. Still... "Better hurry, Sage!" he whispered to her.

Sage watched as Evan disappeared in front of her wide eyes. Then she looked towards the llama, who had also disappeared completely. A small, surprised yelp escaped her lips as she felt Evan helping her onto the animal. She carefully mounted it and felt Evan sit behind her. Her heart beat a little quicker with excitement as they sat on the animal, ready to make their great escape.

Then she heard the keepers and Evan's whisper. Without hesitating, the llama under them started moving forward a bit quicker than the animal probably should be able to run. It was a strange gallop a little closer to a horse than a llama and Sage could feel the strain on it's legs. "Hang on," she whispered, slowing the animal down just after it jumped over the short fence. "I don't want to break it's legs." Sage adjusted the way it moved so it was more natural and started running it again, heading straight towards the exit of the zoo.

"Oh wow, this is great," she said quietly. "Oh, but who names a llama Frumpy? Poor thing, probably died from embarrassment." Sage laughed a little bit, putting a hand over her mouth as someone nearby looked around, startled. They dodged kids and parents, making their way to the gate. Hopefully Evan could last that long.

They moved at what seemed to be an excruciatingly slow speed. Evan's powers were not really that powerful - he was barely proficient at Invisibility, his Light was entirely too weak, and it was too sunny to try and do anything with his Shadows which were his strongest dominion. "Hurry up!" he whispered, desperate, at his friend.

But he couldn't help but laugh, loudly, at her comment about Frumpy. Loud enough that a woman close to them screamed, prompting a couple of guards to start walking towards her. Shit, shit. They were so close to the exit now... so close... And then, they reappeared. His power seemed to have fizzled out.

"Go! Sage, just go!" he shouted as he jumped off from the Llama, then cloaked himself with his Light dominion, bending the light around himself for a moment before letting it explode, blinding anyone nearby. Taking advantage of the distraction, he ran behind the Llama which was going much faster than he could have believed possible. Fuck, the things he did to keep his friends happy.

Sage laughed as the woman screamed in surprise at Evan's laugh, which only prompted more strange, startled looks. The exit was in sight and so close Sage felt like she could almost touch it. The llama was moving much quicker now and its movements were much more natural. One step after another, it just got closer, closer-

Sage didn't notice that she was visible until she heard Evan's shouts. Looking down, she saw the fur of the llama and felt a small yelp escape her mouth before spurring the animal to run even faster. The light he shot out was bright enough that it made Sage close her eyes for just a moment-

And she ran directly into one of the guards. He was a frail guy about 17 or 18 years old. Maybe he was a temp or maybe he was just a high school student with a part time job. One way or another, Sage opened her eyes as she felt the animal hit some resistance and reigned the animal back. It took a step back before taking back off towards the gate. Looking behind her, Sage shouted, "I'm sorry!" to the teen scrambling to get back up. Then she focused back on the path ahead of her, dodging frightened children and confused adults.

They were so close...

Fuck, fuck, fuck! Sage had run directly into one of the guards, and he was too far away to do anything to help her. Why the fuck had he agreed to help her try to steal a dead Llama to keep up heir weird ass necromancy Snow White act? God, this world really was messed up... Then he remembered her confession and sighed. That was why he'd agreed to this.

Evan ran after Sage, while Kordran kept laughing too much to be any help. He was extremely amused by their antics, though Evan couldn't blame him. Still, he wished his demon would just shut up and let him concentrate. There were guards running towards Sage now, so he extended his hands in front of him and froze the ground under them, making them fall down and struggle to get up again as they slid on the frozen ground.

"God damn it, what's taking you so long!" he shouted towards his friend, as he ran to catch up and tried to make them Invisible again, straining his energy to do so. But he'd managed to do it - neither he nor Sage nor the Llama were visible. He struggled to keep up with their pace, but he knew he had to do it.
