Bengo's head was slowly drooping down when she burst in. "Bengo! There is black mist everywhere! It's... it's filling everyone up, and pushing who they are out!" Bengo stared at Kori in shock.
Her cold facade was barely visible in her face. Still half-asleep, Bengo's struggle for understanding was clear in his every movement "What are you talking abou..." And then it hit him. Black mist. "It can't be..." He whispered. "It's Dark Matter. They've come." Kori looked at him in momentary confusion, then her eyes went wide. She knew Bengo's tales of the heartless black army well. Then the emotion in her face froze over once more. "What must we do?" Bengo looked at her wearily. He knew her mind. He knew that she wanted to fight to save the only home she had ever known. He shook his head. "Their is nothing we can do. We can only save ourselves."
For a moment there was silence. The loud plink of water on stone startled Bengo, and he stared at Kori in shock. Tears leaked from her orange eyes. Tears! He had never seen her cry, not even as a baby. And then her frozen demeanor shattered. She fell to the ground, her sobs echoed around the cavern. Panic flickered in Bengo's eye, for he knew that if there was any Dark Matter nearby who could hear her cries, then they would be swarming the cave in seconds. But he couldn't bring himself to silence her. He couldn't do anything but stare as raw emotion racked Kori's body. Tentativly, he placed his hand on her back, and said, "It'll be okay baby... there is just nothing that we can do but survive."
wow, that took a long time. for those who didnt get what was going on, kori and bengo were on shiver star when it was invaded by dark matter. kori wanted to fight to save the planet, but bengo knew that it would be a suicide mission, and kori didnt take it too well. dont ask where the idea came from, it just popped into my head.
unlike other muro pics of mine, i scanned the initial sketch and then drew on muro from there. i was trying out some new techniques for blending on muro, and i left some things un-blended on purpose, in case you were wondering.
