That sudden silence that seemed to overcome his mate readily seemed to draw the mans attention, Tobias' dark gaze lifted to linger on her own as the woman seemed to contemplate that question of heaven and hell and the religious notions that existed behind it. Religion, for Tobias, was a decidedly non-existent thing. The boy, so far, hardly having proven capable of a depth of understanding required to contemplate any form of god let alone any worship of this invisible deity. Tobias was, in every sense, a being very much content to live in the present of what he could and could not see at that very moment. God was, perhaps, an ide far to complex for his own more basal thoughts. The boy unlikely to understand and more so- perhaps unlikely to truly care even if that idea could be conveyed towards him. The idea of consequence had always proven decidedly difficult for the deviant. Though whether he failed to understand or simply chose not to try remained to be seen.
Still, his attention remained upon his fiance in that moment. Tobias often given to attempt to try for the sake of Raven alone. The curly-haired woman one of the few beings within all the world the Leopard held any desire to....impress perhaps. Her approval meant....something to him, even if he hardly understood what. Raven and Tetradore perhaps the only beings he truly cared for in any sense enough to attempt to understand their words. His mind struggled to comprehend those offered phrases and too- those emotions the words seemed to hold. Tobias near notorious for failing to perceive the correct emotion in any sense, his head tilting slightly before that frown seemed to find him. The boy near scowling in a clear attempt to contemplate this idea of heaven and hell and sin. Raven insisting that heaven was a good place. Tobias readily understand the word 'good' if nothing else, the curly-haired woman pausing then before offering that idea that hell was 'bad'. Tobias continuing to stare towards her as she described that tortue and misery, the breaking and the hurt- though whether or not he comprehended the words was unknown. The boy remaining silent for several long moments before his shoulders so suddenly lifted into a shrug of sorts, those stuttered, broken words falling from him then as his eyes returned to Raven's own.
"Then we....are....already in.....hell."
That such a bold statement had left his lips hardly seemed to concern the boy in the slightest. Tobias nodding as if to confirm those very words, that lack of response from his mate seeming to prompt those furthered words. The leopard attempting to offer something of an explanation for those very thoughts as he continued.
"All....those things happen to....Bridie and to.....Tetra with....Risky and to.....Tobi.....so this....is hell."
That he had both understood Ravens words and so managed to apply them to a situation was perhaps baffling in itself, this one of the few times the boy had shown any ability to comprehend the depth of those situations his mate, his best friend and himself had suffered in one way or another and yet his voice remained near emotionless all the same, the boy appearing near apathetic, as if he merely stated the truth and little else. His attention readily distracted mere moments later but that statue he all but dragged the unfortunate woman toward only to be dragged away from it again with that isistance it was a man. His muttering over that very issue distracted by those bubbles. Raven, fortunately, having the foresight to pay the man for them and prevent an international incident. The curly haired woman content to muse over those clues for the mountain as Tobias busied himself with those bubbles, that grin finding his features in a fashion nearly childish. Those tiny, shining bubbles readily captivating the young man. His mind, it seemed, remained focused on those clues all the same, Tobias assured they could simply knock down a bearded woman and take her beard. His ability to deduce right from wrong often decidedly lacking. That near horrified exclamation from his mate seeing his gaze settle on her once more, his features frowned.
"I can do it.....if Birdie....is scared."
Both eyes lifted easily upward in that copied gesture, as if Tobias sought to tease the woman with the idea she was afraid to do such a thing, his features shifting into that obscure grin once more before the looming mountain in the distance saw him point. Tobias, it seemed, having located a mountain even if he had failed to think logically about any of those further steps. The distance they would have to walk of clear concern to him and yet the idea of a car seemed to see his features brighten near instantly.
He insisted near matter-of-factly his gaze turned to his mate now, his head nodded once more in a clear effort to further assure her off his talents in this. Tobias decidedly prone to believing he had more talents then he often did. Confidence it seemed, was hardly lacking in any real sense from the boy.
"Tetra has been....teaching me. Where do we get....a car?"
The idea of driving had clearly settled itself within the boys mind, that very notion perhaps prompting that suggestion of that honey moon. His mind taking in those offered words as he seemed to consider them for several moments longer. Where he wanted to go was a decidedly difficult question, one his mind seemed to struggle to comprehend. His knowledge of geography truly limited at best.
"Where does...Birdie want to....go."
It was a rare thing indeed for the boy to ask another what they thought. Tobias, for the first time, asking what his mate might like rather then himself as he began to lead the way towards several parked cars.....
madness, as you know, is like gravity: all it takes is a little push
