Argon smiled softly, and did his best to look less intimidating. It hard when he was pretty much all muscle. He wrote his number in and handed Arrikanez his phone back. "Sorry, I have a rule to not answer my phone unless I know who is calling," he said with a sheepish grin. It was a bad habit he picked up from being only a little paranoid. He handed the man his phone. It wasn't much, just a simple bottom of the line type phone. "I hope you don't mind..." he said uncertainly. "I don't imagine they'll want to keep Xena for much longer, so I'll go back, take her home, and call you," he promised.

"It's quite alright, I don't get to talk with people outside of my work," Argon said quickly. "Sometimes I know I can be a little to blunt for people," he added with a chuckle. "I'm not picky, so just let me know where you end up. If your still at the hospital I could pick you up and we could drive somewhere," he said before he got up to find Xena.

Arri took the man's phone, and quickly put his number in, happy to have something to do with his hands, rather than having to think with his mouth. Unfortunately, that rarely worked when he was trying to articulate specific feelings. He drew in a sighed, and handed the phone back to Argon with a shy smile. "There... it's all put in. I even put in the address to the castle. You know... if you wanted to come visit or anything."

He shuffled a bit in his seat, picking at the hem of his shirtsleeve that wasn't rolled up, almost looking for an excuse - any excuse - to keep the male from leaving. But it was as he'd said. He had to pick up Xena... and take her home... and do other things. Honestly, he probably didn't have time for Arri. After all, he was just someone he met in the hospital, right? Why would he want to spend time with someone like that?

The boy couldn't help the negative thoughts. Sometimes, they just flowed like this, washing over him in a wave of grief. He couldn't stop the tears either, although there was really no reason for him to be crying. Thus, he lifted the arm his IV wasn't attached to, and tried to wipe them away. "Eheh... I don't know why... I'm crying, I... shouldn't be." he said softly. "You'll... be back, right? Or you'll call me? Right?" And there was his massive insecurity showing.

Argon looked shocked, and then his face softened. He offered the boy a smile. "I'll be back," he promised softly. "I've never had a chance to visit a castle. You have my number. If you get lonely or something you can always call," he said. "Besides, taking Xena home will take less than ten minutes," he hesitated, many possibilities ran through his head, but he had to dismiss them. "And I think you'll have time pass once your doctor friend gets you in," he added.

When he was escorting Xena home he couldn't help but grin. What a wild day it had been, and when he met Arrikanez again he was sure it would only get weirder. If Argon wasn't so damn paranoid and strange maybe he could have opened up a bit more and things might not have felt as weird. Whatever had happened back there he was sure it was his own fault that the young man had cried. Still, he was being given a chance to make things better, and Argon sure as hell wasn't going to screw things up.

---- This is a time skip! ----

When Argon meandered back into the hospital it would be... well... utter chaos. Nurses were running all over the place, doctors were barking orders, and in the middle of it all, Luminare was pacing back and forth, head down, brow lined in thought. The moment he saw Argon, he perked, and marched over as if he might have meant to throw the man across the room. With barely-restrained anger, he rounded on the man, keeping his fists balled and at his sides specifically so he did not throw the man across the room.

"Where is he." he demanded, tersely. "Where is he, and what have you done with him."

One of the others in the hallway noticed that Luminare was about ready to punch Argon's lights out, and hurriedly dropped off the sheaf of papers he'd been filing on the middle desk, sprinting over to stand in-between his boss and the other.

[No Image]

"Doctor, I think you might be jumping the gun just a tad?" the young male said, holding up a hand to the irate doctor, and looking back at Argon. "I'm sorry, I guess I'd better explain this... You see, one of his patients, who also happens to be his adopted son... well, he's not here anymore? And the exam room he was led to is... erm... less than pristine..."

"It's covered in blood!" Luminare yelled. "And this male is the only one that saw Arrikanez before I did! He had to have done something with him! Now get out of my way so I can beat it out of him!"

"Sir, I believe you need to calm down." the young man said, holding up both hands this time, and making a 'calm down' motion with them. "I don't think this gentleman had anything to do with this..."

"You wanna fight me little man?" Argon asked smiling slyly. He'd just shown up and the hospital had been in bad shape. Argon knew hospitals, he had seldom seen them like this. If he had less restraint he might had laughed at the doctor. He didn't want to be rude and he didn't want the doctor to think less of him so he stayed still and prepared to defend himself if he needed to.

Covered in blood? that couldn't be good. Argon shook his head sadly. He had been dying for breakfast and Arrikanez seemed like someone he wanted to have breakfast with. "I'm sure I can take care of myself," he said softly to the other man who had stepped in. "Besides, I imagine someone will have to go looking for the missing fellow," he added giving the older doctor a hard stare. "If I wanted to take the young man I would have whisked him away when I took Xena away," he added. Argon was not exactly in the mood to be punched, or give a punch. It would be better if he did his best to offer help and prove his innocence.

"We have teams out looking for him right now." Luminare said, although his face fell a little. "There aren't a whole lot of places he could have gotten to without his medication, and that was all left here." He sighed, and rubbed the bridge of his nose. The younger doctor stepped out from in-between the two, and skittered down the hall after a nurse to give her the papers he'd put on the middle desk. Luminare didn't even pay attention.

"I led him into one of the exam rooms down the hallway to get a little more comfortable before I could get someone in to see him... next thing I know, one of the other doctors is bursting into my examination and screaming about blood and..." he sighed explosively, and shook his head. "I'm sorry, Argon. I just... I feel helpless. Like I need to blame someone. You just happened to be the first one in that door."

He started pacing again, thinking and talking at the same time.

"All of the blood was bright, so there's a chance it was a chest-wound, or splattered. I'm not crime-scene analyst, but I know blood. We've called the police, and there's not much more we can do. The only thing I found was a set of footprints, and I... have no idea where to begin analyzing those. I'm a doctor, not a cop! This stuff is beyond me! .... But we must find Ari. He won't last long without his medications."

Argon sighed and calmed himself. From the sounds of things Argon was dreading that they might find Arrikanez dead somewhere. "Is it his blood?" Argon asked. Maybe someone else had tried to harm him and the young man acted in self defense. Argon really hoped this was the case, as dreadful as the thought may be, it was better than finding Arrikanez dead. "How far to the footprints lead? Are your search teams follow them?" he continued, trying to remember what information might be helpful. "I imagine a few more people looking wouldn't be detrimental," he added. Argon was not the kind of person to stand idly by when he knew he was free to take action.

"It's his blood. It's already been tested." Luminare said, running his fingers through his hair. "What strikes me as odd is that he took his cellphone. His medication, the plush I brought him, his papers, everything else was left here. But not a single one of us can find his phone...." he turned around to look at Argon. "The footprints only lead to the door - then they're wiped clean. We know he was taken outside, but we don't know where."

The doctor was fairly wringing his hands at the moment. "Gods, what if he's... No. I can't let myself think that. I don't have his phone-number, or I would have tried calling him. I have someone running to the Castle to get it, but they're going to be gone another twenty or so minutes." He sighed again, looking down at the hallway floor. "I can't think of anyone who would want to take Arri, let alone where they would take him." his gaze turned to Argon, looking more than a little panicked. "We have to find him. We have to. We have to find him soon."

Of course they had already run the blood. Argon had hoped they had done so already. He had wanted to check because Luminare hadn't said anything about it.

"You don't have his phone number?" Argon asked incredulous. "Lucky for you I brought my phone with me," he mumbled and rummaged through his pockets. He pulled out the simple phone and went to his contacts. "Are you needed at the hospital?" He asked, saving the lives in the building was still important. "If not, I have to get somewhere quieter and if you would like we could look for him together," he added his fingers ready to dial Arrikanez's phone number.

Luminare wore a pained expression for a moment, then sighed. "I'm needed here. I still have ER-rotation, and I'm on-shift for four hours yet." His face fell, then he looked back up at Argon, and pressed something into his hand. "This is the inhaler of medication for Arri's lungs. If you find him... give it to him immediately, do you understand?" his eyes bored into Argon's. "Unconscious, conscious, willing or not... He needs this inhaler to be able to breathe once his other medication wears off. You need to give it to him immediately. And I'm trusting you. You must find him." He reached out to take his hand, and curled his fingers around the inhaler. "I'm trusting you. Because nobody else... seems to understand how much this means to me. So you.... you have to find him."

He stepped away after a moment, taking a deep, calming breath. "Take... take one of the paramedics with you." he motioned to a young man standing beside the check-in counter, inquiring whether or not the night-shift had noticed anyone but Argon coming into the hallway.

The boy looked as though he were every bit as intent on finding information about Arri's disappearance as Luminare was.

"Understood," Argon said with a nod. He was a bit relieved that the doctor had to stay at the hospital. He wasn't quite sure he would get along well with the man. At least the doctor seemed to care about Arrikanez. He left Luminare and began walking out of the hospital. He hoped to the gods that when he called Arrikanez would answer. Although he was not exactly sure what he would say to the young man. "Come on," he ordered the paramedic.

When he reached a quieter area outside he flipped open his phone and dialed the number. He paced as he waited for someone to pick up on the other end.

Arrikanez [60]

Postby Rainbowfox Ari » 07/21/2015 12:48 PM

There was a click, and then a gruff, older voice - certainly not Arrikanez - barked out an order, somewhere in the background. "Answer it."

"H-hello?" That was Arrikanez, and he sounded shaken up. "Th... this is Arrikanez." His voice was thin, strained, as though he were terrified.

The other voice interrupted from the background. "Don't you dare tell them where we are." it snarled. It was obviously a male voice, that much was clear. "Tell them what sort of state you're in. Go on. Be a good boy."

Arrikanez sounded like he had either just started to cry, or was going to, as he spoke. "H-he.. he gave me a bl-black eye... and I... I'm b-bleeding from m-my chest and my s-side..." A few half-choked-back sobs came over the line, and there was a massive banging noise somewhere near the phone.

"I'm sorry! I'm sorry!" Arri cried out, and there was a shuffling noise as he apparently either dropped or lost the phone.

The next voice Argon heard was the other male's, and it was slightly smug at that.

"I've got him chained up. Power-limiting collar around his neck, and an arcane warding brand burned onto his left shoulder-blade. He isn't getting out of here any time soon. You want him back? In one piece? You do exactly as I say, you got me?"

Argon heard another man's voice and his own words died in his throat. When Arrikanez went on the phone Argon wasn't sure what to say. He wasn't going to promise safety, and he wasn't sure if talking would anger whoever had the boy captured.

"Am I allowed to ask a question before we begin?" he asked, oops. He had no idea what Arrikanez was capable of if the man felt like he needed to do all of whatever he did. Although he was incredibly curious to find out, mostly he just wanted to know why someone would take the young man.

"Talk fast. You get two questions." The man on the other line said, sounding like he really didn't even have the patience for one. "I don't like your questions, I hang up. Think carefully."

In the background, Arri... was screaming. It was muted - probably through tape or a sock or something, but he was definitely screaming. The static over the phone showed that the young god was well-and-truly terrified, if he was interrupting the call like this. Probably without even trying to. The other man's voice left the phone for a moment, and there was a loud 'bang' - like a gunshot? Maybe it was something else.

Whatever the case, Arri's screaming died down to whimpers, and then just soft sobbing. The older man went back to the phone. "Sorry, he was being... naughty. What do you want to ask."

Argon winced and waited again for whatever was happening on the other end to die down. He really felt bed about the situation. Being tortured was something that Argon had never experienced. It seemed like whatever the young man was experiencing was intense.  "I really only have one question, unless there is a question you think I should ask," Argon promised. "Why did you take him?" he asked.
