The Wings of Zephyr
"The name's Claire and I wear the Zephyr Warframe. I'm not much for words, and do prefer to stick to myself, but I am still fairly friendly after you get to know me."

Claire nodding her head in approval.

Apparently there was a bug in that allowed me to change Thunder’s actual physical appearance. I was able to change him from the giant mass of muscle and fluff to a lean, mean, fighting machine. It was a bug for me however, as now I cannot change, but I really don’t care, either way he’s my adorable little baby and I love him to pieces.

I personally like his ripped form because he looks like a fuckin boss, but I also like the tall one.. ;_;

It’s a Dog Meet Dog World, baby…

Alex blinked as Claire pointed to the wall, directing his eyesight to the digital clock mounted there, taunting him in crimson colours that the time was now 4:02 AM, Dojo Standard. He blinked for a moment, then realization dawned on his features and his jaw dropped open, eyes twinkling with realization. His lips parted and formed an o-shape.

"Ohhhhh. That’s what you meant," He commented, shaking his head ruefully, chuckling at his own sillyness. "Well, Claire…my lovely, lovely fiancee. When would you like to get married? Do you want a big party or a small, private ceremony? Or would you like it to be just us? Do you want a big cake? Can it be in the shape of a space corgi? Can Thunder be the ringbearer?" He asked excitedly, overloading Claire with a flood of questions as he bounced on the floor excitedly.

Oh my god I’m going to be a married man.

…I’m okay with this.

I really am.

Claire simply laughed as Alex responded to the correction of his misinterpretation of his timing to question her to marry him. Thunder the Kubrow cautiously approached Claire’s side, looking at her hand as it rested calmly in her lap, before gently sniffing the ornate ring that Alex had just placed on her ring finger. He seemed to give a few more sniffs, before suddenly licking her hand, and Claire giggled in response. “Well it looks like you have Thunder’s approval…” She commented with a soft chuckle, before turning to Alex, who began to question her with all sorts of excitement about their wedding.

She had to raise her hands to at least get him to slow down, as soon as he had mentioned Thunder being the ring bearer, the Kubrow raised his head and looked around in an almost nervous fashion, to which Claire simply laughed. “You know, typically it’s the woman who is asking all of these questions when engaged…” She responded in a soft chuckle, noticing his light bouncing motions in excitement.

“I honestly don’t really need a big ceremony or cake or anything special like that….I have few friends as it is…as much as it would be nice to have some people at a ceremony, why not just do a small private one?”

It’s a Dog Meet Dog World, baby…

Alex just smiled at Claire, his eyes and lips both beaming widely as he pulled the ornate jewelry out of its case, fumbling slightly with it in his fingers, suddenly shaky from anticipation and excitement and the pure emotion of the moment as he slipped it onto the ring finger on Claire’s left hand, sliding it past her knuckle.

"I know it’s a little sudden and we’ve really only been dating for a little over a year now, but it’s a rough life for us and anything can happen in our line of work. Despite the fact that you’re getting better by the day, and when your stomach’s all better, we’re gonna start training together again, and I’m well…me. Anything can happen, and despite all our best efforts, one of us might not be here tomorrow. You know I’d die before I let that happen, and we’ve saved each other multiple times now, but we’ve picked the worst job in the galaxy in terms of life expectancy, my love.

I couldn’t wait any longer, and after this last close call…I didn’t want to.”

Claire watched as Alex fumbled with the bioluminescent lined piece of jewelry, one that matched the necklace that she still wore to that day, true to her word from the day that she had first received the prized bioluminescent necklace.

The Zephyr held out her hand as Alex slipped the ring onto her finger, it sliding perfectly past her knuckle and fitting oh so perfectly on her hand. She smiled kindly down to the ring for a few moments, simply staring and taking in its beauty as Alex harped that they had only been dating for a little over a year, but their line of work meant that one could be gone within the blink of an eye, and there was not a single bit of sarcasm or exaggeration in that statement.

She nodded her head for a moment, listening to Alex as he mentioned that as soon as her stomach was deemed fully healed by their private health practitioner Dyson the Oberon, that he would begin training with her, so that the two of them could protect one another, and so that no matter what they could return to each other’s side at the end of the day. It was a lovely sentiment, but it was not exactly what Claire meant by her previous statement, she simply laughed, gently wiping away one of her tears of happiness from her cascading cheek.

“No! I meant you had to ask me right now, Its 4 in the morning!” She responded, pointing over to a clock on the wall that signaled the time was 4:02 A.M.

"hey there little birdie, how are yoou?.." (please no Alex. Someone make him busy.)

Claire had been confined to the Fenrir for some time now, the damage done to her midsection was enough to render even the most formidable of people bed ridden. Though she had gone catatonic after the revelation of losing a child, the Zephyr was stirred back to life, brought back from the void of emptiness by a dear friend of hers from her childhood, her beloved Kubrow Thunder.  Alex had taken on Claire’s missions from the Lotus, so that Claire could stay at rest in the Fenrir and get her health back to perfect condition.

Alex’s sobs came to an immediate halt as he heard something he had never heard before from one of these visions, these spectres. He heard the apparition of Claire beg for him to come back, and even start crying herself as she slumped on the floor next to him, propping herself up on one arm.

That never happened. Usually they jeered and japed at him, mocking him, asking him why he was so useless, why they let them die, why they died but he got to continue on.

They never told him they needed him.

That and he heard Thunder’s whines. He only saw Claire get hit. He never saw the Kubrow get hurt. Thunder couldn’t have died.

"C-Claire?" He asked, voice small like a scared child as his head poked out from the ball he was curled up in, seeing Claire lying on the ground next to him. The mark on her chest was bleeding, and some blood was seeping through her bandages around the abdomen, staining her shirt with darkened crimson, but she was there. Thunder peered up at him from Claire’s side and instead of growling at him, gave him a whine.

"CLAIRE!" He cried, gently pulling her upper body into his lap and rocking her back and forth, sobbing with her as he realized that she wasn’t a vision or a ghost from the past. She was hurt, but she was there.

She was alive.

"O-OH GOD! I’m so sorry!" He bawled, breaking down into tears again. "I shouldn’t have left you alone! I failed you and you got hurt. AGAIN! I just got you back and here you are almost dying and getting hurt again! I’m not gonna let it happen again Claire! I’m not letting you go. I’m not letting you out of my sight again!"

Never.

…Ever…

Claire’s voice broke from her desperate pleas to get Alex to wake up so that he would come back to her, after what had seemed like an eternity of begging, she had come to a conclusion that he was not going to come back to her, and that yet again, the poor Zephyr was going to be left alone in the Universe, with nobody by her side to help or care for her. She cried loudly, obnoxiously, until she heard a weak and hesitant voice call her name.

She lifted her head for a moment, almost the same time as Thunder had done so, and almost instantly she was met with Alex screaming out her name and dragging her body into a warm and tight embrace. She bit her lip for a moment, her eyes watering further before more tears poured from her eyes. She buried her head in Alex’s chest as he cradled her close to his body, telling her that he was never going to let her out of his sight again, and that he was not going to let it happen again.

Claire didn’t really care about if she had to be alone for a bit, she didn’t care in the least, just knowing that she could come back to Alex was enough for her. She remained silent, pushing her head into the corner of Alex’s shoulder, holding onto his body tightly as the two of them cried to their hearts content.

The world saw no need to pay kindness to them….

"hey there little birdie, how are yoou?.." (please no Alex. Someone make him busy.)

Alex’s insane cackling sobs grew to a still as he heard a voice pierce the haze of near-demonic insanity and bloodlust that still clouded his mind, and turned to face its source, eyes widening and the tears beginning anew as he did so.

"No…nonono…he killed you. I FAILED YOU! YOU DIED! I SAW IT!" He shrieked, not believing the sight in front of him as he unsealed his helmet, tossing it aside and releasing the rest of his Warframe’s components and armour pierces, the blood-covered Rhino parts clattering to the floor and lying still, leaving him in a pristine black undersuit, untouched by any of Eirhol’s putrid blood. His legs gave out from underneath him as he fell onto his rear, sliding backwards until his back hit the wall and he still futilely tried to back away from what he thought was an apparition, someone dead from the afterlife come to haunt him for his failure.

"NO! NO! YOU DIED! HE KILLED YOU. I FAILED YOU! DON’T HAUNT ME, I’M SORRY! PLEASE! I KNOW I FAILED YOU LIKE I’VE FAILED EVERYONE ELSE I LOVE! I CAN’T SEE THIS! PLEASE!" He stopped trying to back away, his legs falling silent and remaining still as he buried his face into his knees, legs curled tightly against his chest as he rocked back and forth, the tears streaming down his cheeks as the broken, shattered husk of a man tried to shut out the apparitions of the dead haunting him.

It had been years since he had seen a spectre of one long past. He thought those visions would stop haunting him.

He was wrong.

The universe was cruel, mocking him with the visage of yet someone else he failed.

"Just kill me…please…I can’t ever be happy, I can’t ever do anything but watch the ones I love die while I continue to survive. I don’t deserve to live. Please…just end it." He sobbed, pleading with nobody in particular as he continued to rock back and forth.

Claire nearly froze in her step as he started to shred off his Warframe parts, tossing them aside and backing away from her, almost at a rapid and panicked pace. She felt nothing but pure heartbreak in her chest as he backed away from her, her heart pulling and pinching the farther he backed away from her, and the more that his panicked voice rang out that she was dead.

“Alex no…please…I’m right here! I’m not dead! It’s me!” She spoke back to him in a desperate voice as he stopped moving, still frantic in his words and assuring her that she was no longer dead, and that he did not want for her to haunt him.

Her face contorted into a huge frown as he made that statement, That he could no longer go on knowing that everybody he loved died whilst he lived. “Baby…please…I’m alive…I’m right here…I-I’m not…*hic* going anywhere….” Her voice responded to his in a sad tone of voice, as she lowered her body down to his height and pleaded with him even as he hid his face in his knees and rocked back and forth, begging for Claire to end his life so that he could stop haunting her.

Then the daunting reality that Alex’s mind might be shattered hit her, if she could not get him to realize that she was still alive and well…Alex would get himself killed…and yet again she would be left alone.

Claire’s body practically broke down against the floor, she slumped down right next to Alex, prepping her body up with an arm as tears began to flow from her eyes. “Alex please…don’t leave me alone…please don’t shut me out…I’m alive I’m right here! Please don’t leave me alone…I can’t be left alone again…not after what I’ve been through..please Alex…PLEASE. I need you!” She cried out as her loyal kubrow came to her side, where Thunder began to gently nuzzle her shoulder, hoping to bring her out of her tears, something that would not be happening if Alex was not going to come back.

“Please Alex…don’t leave me alone…don’t leave me like everybody else does…I don’t want to be alone anymore…..please don’t leave me……I’m begging you….Don’t leave me…..”

“Don’t leave me…..”

"hey there little birdie, how are yoou?.." (please no Alex. Someone make him busy.)

He laughed out loudly. "You…KILL ME?..

"Hrn.." As he could hear her screaming this he would stop that animal from doing it, but no he wanted something else at the moment. As Eirhol was watching her and felt what she want to do the infested male suddenly just let the skana go and using the moment for swinging his fist into Claire’s abdomen.

Claire grinned softly as she watched the Skana drop from his hand, as her plan to get the weapon away from him had worked, and yet her reaction time was too slow. She did not see his incoming fist towards her midsection, and as soon as it connected with her gut, Claire instantly reeled backwards, her chest stooping over and downwards as her hands drew into her midsection.

“GCK! You…y…BASTARD.. I’LL KILL YOU!” She shouted through pained grunts as she sank down to her knees, trying to force herself to get back up.

"hey there little birdie, how are yoou?.." (please no Alex. Someone make him busy.)

He grabbed the skana into both his hands and swang it in Claire’s direction aiming on her head, but of course he didn’t do that wth all his strenght, just to make her move more, looking right into her eyes as he was doing this, one hand in the air slowly letting the skana go and he clenched it into a fist.

Claire’s eyes were searching Eirhol’s body, watching as he gripped the Skana with both of his hands before swinging it downwards in a direction towards her head. She gritted her teeth softly, and as soon as she noticed that one hand release its grip on the Skana, she grinned softly. One swift motion of her hands and the Fang Prime blades were brought up to block the Skana, catching it with her Fang Prime blades in the form crevice of an X.

“Thunder, get Alex!” She shouted, before the Kubrow nodded and literally bolted off, following his nose to locate Alex. Claire on the other hand, raised her leg to kick, despite warning the stress to her midsection would further hurt her injury, she had to get that Skana away. She delivered a swift kick to Eirhol’s forearm, both of her hands holding the Fang Primes pushing the Skana blade outwards, hopefully to knock it out of Eirhol’s hand.

"hey there little birdie, how are yoou?.." (please no Alex. Someone make him busy.)

Thunder chomped down on his leg more, thrashing his head from left to right and trying to pull the putrid being away from his beloved owner, the man was however seemingly unphased by the Kubrow’s vicious attack, instead opting to grab a hold of Claire’s wrists as he informed her that it was quite rude to do that, even after he had done nothing to her. While he had not done anything yet, Claire had finally made that connection, Alex had informed her of this being, his name was Eirhol, and he was NOT to be trusted.

The Zephyr pulled one hand away from Eirhol’s grasp with a harsh thrust, moving back to her hip, where she raised her shirt slightly and grabbed a holstered Fang Prime blade, her hand curling into a fist against the knife’s base as she lunged the sharp edge of the blade against Eirhol’s cheek, leaving a large scar down the side of his face.

“I SAID LET ME GO!”

It was fast, it was really not nice to do this. A small trial of brownish yellow blood came out from that wound Claire made. "Oh…thats rude milady…" He licked it down with his long tongue. However he was still ignoring the pet of hers, he suddenly pulled out like from inside of his body long skana colored black and red… it wasn’t his he stole it from Werhin some time before. "Shall I repay it now?.."

After a few moments and Thunder realized that his attempts to damage and pull Eirhol away from Claire were in vain, the Kubrow took his maw from Eirhol’s leg and returned to Claire’s side, still growling and snarling viciously at Eirhol as he dared to pull out a bloodied black and red Skana from out of what appeared to be inside of his body.

Claire took a defensive step backwards, her stomach was still not ready for intense combat, but she could at least defend herself, though if things were going to get too heated, she might need to call for backup…somehow. The girl pulled a second Fang Prime blade from her opposing hip, bringing both of the small weapons up defensively.

“Go ahead and try.” She said in a cold and emotionless voice.
