The last few weeks have been more like tortute for him. Along with it being very confusing too. Spending the majority of it trying to figure out how he was able to get back to his people and his sister too. Hudson could remember when he had just about finished one of his missions. Helping a man who’d only lost his husband to move on, although he hadn’t expected for the man who he was helping with the grief to die too from a broken heart. Hudson was just about to return back to the veil with his Empath Master to find that they were locked out. No way of getting back home, everything they tried was no use. Soon finding out that they were stuck on Earth, taking them a while to figure out and learn how all the other Aurzain’s were stuck on earth too being locked out in the veil. More specifically where they all were, all the way in America. With how he was in England at the very time he was locked out. Making it even more difficult to get back to the others. No phone, no money and no passport too. Finding somehow he always seemed to make everything even more difficult for him. Hudson hasn't even been able to reach his sister to tell her that she’s all okay nor did he know if she was. Pushing him to try to get back as he could.
He’s still finding it harder for him to adjust to everything again now he’s living on earth. Sleeping and eating was one of the main things along with finding out the hard way that sugar is not so good for them even how nice it tastes. Having slipped up a few times already. As cake always has been one of his weaknesses, something that was still the same even now. Hudson spent the last few weeks trying to figure out how exactly to get back. Taking up a job in a local bar in London trying to make enough money for the flights, to get a phone and a fake passport. Luckily finding a few supernatural connections in the city. Hudson was amazed how the world has changed in the few years after he had died. Still trying to get used to it all but he knew he was like everyone else trying to seem like they are normal whilst in reality they're far from it.
Making a few connection flights to get to Colorado then traveling to Evermore City. Feeling that he’s been travelling for days on end trying to get back to the city. To where all his people were. Now only he just had to figure out where exactly the Ailward Manor where Luke was waiting for him. With how Luke was really the only one who knew how he’d been trying to find his way back for the last few weeks. Expecting that he’s probably one of the last ones to make their way back. As Hudson was one of the few who was out on a mission finding themselves stuck far away from everyone else. Now weeks later here he was at the door of the Ailward Manor hoping he was in the right place if not it would be a little bit awkward to say the least. Opening and pushing open the door, Hudson went in walking into someone else's house. Soon finding a way around the living room spotting Luke there waiting for him. The Aurazin practically flopped on the nearest sofa with exhaustion. “I finally made it, three or four flights then few taxis” Cheering almost forgetting to greet Luke first. “Hey there boss, how are you?” He greeted grinning happily to see a familiar face after weeks alone. “Did Maddie get here all safe?” Eager to find out of his sister was all fine but knew too well that she would be and more likely be panicking about him more instead.
Luke had felt like he'd been standing in the middle of one of the many living areas of the Ailward mansion for hours now. Aurazin, aspect, and guard alike were all busy moving through the different rooms that connected this one. Everyone seemed to be in some kind of frenzied rush, but this is how it was everyday since their arrival to Evermore. The Ailwards were kind enough to let them make use of their home while the Aurazin gathered from around the world due to their fall from the veil and void as well as having already been here on a mission. His eyes moved about the different people walking around him; An aspect helping an aurazin find a room, guards huddled together talking about a mission. This was something he had never believed he'd see in his immortal life. Never had he expected to have to become a leader to his people in this capacity.
Someone passing by him quickly gave him a clipboard before taking off again. Luke opening his mouth to say thank you, but the person was gone again in the sea of people moving about him. His eyes glanced over the paper and he realized it was the day's roster. All of the Aurazin who had made it to the mansion were listed here and everyday he searched for his wife. The thumping in his chest grew louder and harder against his ribs as every name he glanced at was not hers. He flipped the pages with some small glimmer of hope that she would be there, but as the last page came, her name was not listed.
Luke swallowed the lump forming in his throat and let out a shaky breath, moving the pages forward to the beginning again and really focusing on the names. He wanted to see if anyone new had made it through the doors that he may have missed while he took the few hours sleep he could get and was forced to take by the others of the mansion. Sleeping and eating were strange to be doing again and Lucien was pushing himself far too hard. Or at least that is what the Aspects would tell him. Trivial human things such as those were not on the top of his list for importance when all he could think about was finding a way home for the Aurazin.
Pulling his pocket watch from his waistcoat, the sentry saw that it was nearing the end of the afternoon as his eyes glanced outside to see the quick blur of a familiar face he was hoping would make it to the manor safely. Lucien watched as Hudson came bounding into the living room which immediately brought a smile to his face. He watched as the empath quickly plopped onto the couch, clearly weary of the journey. Luke extended his hand to shake his fellow aurazin's in greeting, glad he was another who had made it safely to the manor. "I'm as good as anyone can be during these days. Your sister is here and worried sick, of course. I expect she'll be wanting to see you immediately. My words of comfort were not enough to ease her concern and I'm sure that will only stop once she sees your face." Grabbing the pen on the clipboard, Luke wrote in Hudson's name to the list. "How has being somewhat human again been to you?" Knowing Hudson's passing was not so long ago, Luke always was concerned about those that were on Earth so soon. The feelings of having recently died and being back among humans could become overwhelming to Aurazin and that is why most don't become full fledged empaths until years later after proper training. He could imagine how this new confusion, along with everything else going on, could prove one of the most difficult.
Hudson had surprised himself at how he’d actually managed to do it all himself by making sure he reunited with everyone else. After figuring out where they were he’d planned how and what he’d need to do to get there. Finding he had it harder than everyone else being countries away, not making it easy for him. Yet he proved himself and others wrong managing to do it on his own. Working long hours in a job to make enough money for flights and travel, managing to find someone who could give him fake IDs. All different things he would need to help get him back. The most challenging thing for him was the flight itself. How Hudson felt panicked when he was sitting on a plane. Feeling almost he was back to that night, the flight where both him and his sister were in the plane crash that ended their lives. All the memories were flooding back to him, feeling that he was almost back there again. Haunting him. His death was something he tries to forget since coming back but like most other Aurazin’s they couldn’t easily forget it with how most died from a horrible death. Reasons for how they were given second chances at life again. Hudson just had to remember to get him through the flight that it’s the only way to get back to his sister and his people. So that's what he did, having his own coping mechanisms to get him through the flight and that's what he did.
Luckily he was able to figure out his way to where all the others were staying in Evermore, having been good at directions. Finding his way. Turning up a couple weeks later but no time like the present, thinking he wouldn’t be the last one to turn up. As Hudson arrived he stopped Lucien there right away, seeing him there with the clipboard. Making him chuckle to himself seeing he was still doing roll call. Quickly making his swift appearance so Lucien could check him off his list knowing he must have been getting worried if there still were people who yet to find their way back. Hudson came through in bouncing a little eager to reunite with everyone. Seeing how Lucien was glad to see him too, shaking his hand back as they greeted each other. Hudson was both happy and relieved knowing his sister was here and safe but knew she would be worried sick. Knowing what his sister was like and how protective she is still treating him like a little kid. “Oh shoot, she’s going to give me hell because I wasn't able to contact her '' He chuckled, shaking his head, finding little amusement in it.
It’s been what felt like a long time since he was with his people feeling in the last few weeks he’s been aloe trying his best to get back. All on his own trying to come to terms with being alive again. “It’s quite weird, different. I know it has been that long since I died compared to other people” Hudson began to say but knew it was what everyone was thinking. Finding themselves in the same situation. “But I believe we were all brought back here for a purpose” He went onto saying. Hudson wasn't too sure how much they'd figured out since he’d only just arrived. “How has everyone else been coping?” He wondered curious to see how others were dealing with it all so he could wrap his head around it all. Trying to piece together the pieces.
"Some are doing better than others," Luke answered, grabbing a nearby chair and pulling it forward to sit across from him. He sat up rather stiffly as he normally did; Always formal despite the companion in front of him who looked like he owned the manor from his position. "I can tell many are afraid of the disconnect. They don't know what to do with their free will and I can see and feel their anxiety and worry. Some of us haven't been on Earth in hundreds of years. They're so used to their missions and purpose, they've forgotten what it was like to be almost human."
Luke's eyes glanced down at the list again and mentally took note of all those Aurazin he was referring to. "But, just as you believe, there are others who share you sentiment. Some think that this was all part of some higher fate that I, well, we can't see yet." He was on the complete opposite side of the spectrum when it came to Hudson's thoughts on their expulsion. Luke believed something much more sinister was at work and not knowing yet what that meant for his people and his wife who he hoped was okay in the veil was agonizing with every passing day void of answers. Frankly, the sentry believed something terrible was going to happen if it didn't already start back at home.
"We're nowhere closer to any answers. We don't know why we can't get back to the veil or why we can't get in contact with anyone. We really don't know anything at all." Luke's eyes glanced to his makeshift office that the Ailwards had set up for him temporarily. "Some of the Ailwards were kind enough to show me how to use their computer and go through their archives to see if anything like this has happened before. The Aspects of realms, life, and death I thought might be the best to talk to about what might've happened, but they are just as in the dark as we are. They believe it's connected to some other unusual things that are happening in Evermore. They think our being here might've been done by some powerful magic, but for what, they do not know."
It felt weird being back. Luckily for him it didn’t take him too long to wrap his head around everything. Being one of the ones who adjusted more quickly to being back on Earth, since it hadn’t been many years to him since he had died compared to many others. He was just happy he was back with his people. In the last few weeks being alone it made him realise how much he missed being around people. Always being a people person, someone who at times irated others by his personality. Like many Aurazins he was one of the more hyper ones probably had to do with how much sugary foods he eats when he knew he shouldn’t just not be able to help it. Now Hudson was back he was curious to find how much he’s missed out, always liking to be in the loop finding it hard being all on his own trying to find his way back. He looked over to his mentor nodding his head, listening to him wanting to find out how others were. Hudson understood completely, he too felt like he needed to live with a purpose. Feeling that's what he’s too been missing. “Has Maddie been copying well?” He wondered, knowing his sister and how much she worries. “Well aside from me being halfway around the world trying to get back” Laughing at his bad luck but knew if it was to happen to someone it would be him. “Even back when I was human I always wanted to feel like I had a purpose to help others, probably why I choose to be a firefighter and drawn to the missions and all” Feeling now there was a piece of him missing just needing to find and figure it all out
One of the things right on his mind like others was to know or try to find out what happened and why they were brought back being trapped out the veil. How it made everyone all stunned, nothing like that happening before till now. “I don’t know man, there must be more to it that we all just have to figure out. To find out fate” He was worried about it all even if he doesn’t show it having more of a relaxed set about it right now. Not being able to talk to others about it all with just getting back. “Lets just hope it won’t be too long till we’re back home, where we belong” Trying to sound optimistic. Hudson could tell that Lucien was stressed about to see the bags under his eyes, more than usual. All being thrown into the unknown and all, trying to to figure it all out. Hudson's face fell a little hearing that they’re not able to get in touch with anyone, that he was one of the lucky ones able to find their way back. “So we’re facing something that nobody never has ever known or seen before?” Still feeling in disbelief in it all, able to see how bad it all was. “I can help out with whatever you need or however much I can” Reminding him wanting to show that he was here to help and being supportive. Wanting to do what he could. “Have you figured out a plan for where we’re all going to live?” He wondered not knowing yet if it was all figured out or if he’d be sharing it with his sister or needing to find a flat in the city.
