Apologies by Xweetara Apologies by Xweetara
"This wasn't supposed to happen..."

The whispered words were the first sounds to break the overwhelming silence.

"This isn't what I meant to do," the voice continued, sounding hoarse and on the verge of tears. Deep violet hair fell over the speaker's eyes as she spoke. "I'm sorry, Court, I just... This wasn't..."

Courtney could only shake her head, averting her sapphire eyes. There were no words to describe how she was feeling. She doubted she could have found any even if she had wanted to. There was no way she could speak to Saundra, not now. Not after... This.

The two girls sat on the edge of the bed they shared, arranged the best they possibly could be with their new limitations. Between the two of them, two heads stared downward, four shoulders slumped, four hands rested backward to hold them up... But only one waist sat at the edge of the covers, and only two legs hung over the side of the mattress, one dark and muscular like Saundra, and the other pale and thin like Courtney. Two legs... One for each mind to control. Two separate torsos branching awkwardly from one conjoined waist. It was a mess, to say the least. Like a freak accident.

It hadn't been this way until that morning, either. And now Saundra was doing her utmost to apologize.

"Please, Court, you have to believe me, I never meant for this to happen! It's just..." With a resigned sigh, she began to explain. "You told me you were leaving, Courtney. Said you'd transferred away, and that you were leaving soon... You told me that, and I panicked. I couldn't handle being that far away from you, forever, it just... The thought was too much to handle. I went out for a run the next morning, only I was crying, which made it crazy difficult to run, but I couldn't think straight anyway, because all I knew was I was going to lose you. And so I was running, and crying, and this guy found me, asked me what was wrong. Well, I told him, Court, because he was the only one who's asked, and was willing to listen, and..." She trailed off, kicking her leg idly against the edge of the bed.

Courtney sat in stony silence, waiting for her roommate to continue.

"Well, he told me he could help. He said he knew what to do to make it so there wouldn't be so much distance between us the day you had to leave... He gave me these leaves, I don't know what they were, but he gave me these leaves in a bag, and told me, the day before you had to go, to give you some of the leaves to eat, and then I would eat some too, and then... And then we wouldn't have to be apart." Saundra put her head in her hands, her shoulders shaking. "I shouldn't have listened to the guy, Court. I should've taken those damn leaves and tossed them out, forgotten all about it. But like I said, I panicked... And now... Oh god, Court, this is all my fault." She had started crying, unable to hold it back any longer. Her amber eyes glistened, wet with tears that ran unrestrained down her face and onto their shared lap.

"Saundra..." Courtney whispered, her voice soft and unsure. "Why were you so scared? When I told you I had to leave... Why did you panic like that?"

It took the bewildered girl a few minutes to calm down enough to answer. "B-because..." She wiped her eyes hastily with one arm. "Because I love you. I love you more than anything else I've ever known. I thought if I told you, it would put a rift between us... But now that we're left like this, there's not really any point to secrets anymore. I love you, Courtney, and I don't care what you think of me because of it."

Wrote up a random bit. Whoo~ Yay for lame exposition.

Like I mentioned in my last picture, I thought I'd draw these two again. The concept is just too fascinating to leave alone ^^ There's a surprising amount of reception for these types of pictures, so I hope you like it! I tried a different coloring style this time around, and I'm pretty pleased with the results.

So yeah, these two have names now. Courtney and Saundra. They're the same girls from my last deviation. Would you guys like to see more of them? Because I'll draw some more if you do XD

Would be something to see these two girls down at the beach, in a bikini. Guys would look at Saundra's beautiful dark skinned leg and follow it up to the bikini bottoms and come to the other side and see Courtney's pale skinned leg continue on.

If that's your sort of thing, there are loads of pictures out there of that sort of thing (but yes I will admit that'd be pretty hot)

you should. I meant it as a good thing. Purely from a constructive critism stand point, I would like to say that there is a story here that should be developed.

I'm kind of curious about it too, to tell the truth. Most of this just kind of happens on the spot, so I wonder where they would end up~?

Smeapancol Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
Ok, well first they will be focused on learning to walk and dealing with the immediate reality of their situation. Then they'll have to think about longer-term things like how to share time, travel, futures, etc. They'll have to find jobs and so on too.

Yeah, there's a lot of ground to cover. This is gonna be tricky for them both, to say the least.

Just try not to introduce a lot of different plot elements and keep the story simple.

Excellent drawing and explanation!

I suppose this is one way for Saundra to get into Courtney's pants >.>

(also yes you should totally draw them again)

so what would happen next for them?
would saundra go with courtney, or would they stay where they are?

Xweetara Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
Hard saying. I don't really know at this point... I think with something as, well, life-altering as this, they might just have to start from the drawing board.
