Time: Late Day 13
Summary: Machi and Lamiroir are reunited.
Warnings: Sap and baww. Terrible OP will probably be edited later.
Machi had been disturbed by the rising water levels, but now they had gotten too close for comfort. When the flooding had begun, he'd gone to the kitchen and nearly doubled the amount of food, water, and other supplies that he had hoarded, but now a portion of that was depleted from use and there was no way to replenish or replace it now that the kitchen was under water.
More importantly, Machi could not swim.
Moving his supplies from the cricket bedroom to the attic became his immediate priority, although this was difficult at best, since he couldn't be in both places at once and therefore could not guard either source in any way, making them susceptible to theft or worse somehow. He moved as quickly as possible, using blankets to wrap as much as he could feasibly carry and shuttling them up as swiftly as he could, ignoring and avoiding others as much as possible.
In a couple of hours he'd almost finished, and had begun to reorganise what he'd brought up in an attempt to take up less space and hide it more effectively from anyone who might revive or come up by chance. The attic was filled with boxes and trunks, and he diverted several portions into these, taking care not to place too much in any one container or disturb the dust more than he could help to avoid drawing attention to his stores. He could trust no one.
