Really, I have...no idea what to do here...
Ashe thought to herself as Izayoi headed immediately for the bathroom. Ashe had to settle for speaking through the door, with the fox girl responding in kind. It was hard to not strain her ears to try and hear what was going on in there, but the spirit mage held out. Worst case scenario Izayoi could be using the toilet, and Ashe could see herself actually
jumping out the window in embarrassment if she heard that.What is she doing? Did she actually have to go that badly from earlier, or is she freshening up? I can't hear any running water...and what did she mean, 'when it becomes an issue?' Wouldn't that always be an issue?
Once again, she found herself fidgeting nervously while she waited. What was she going to say when Izayoi came out? She still had to introduce Vendrick and ask him about her lifespan, which she planned to use to lead into revealing her true form. Not that she needed him around to transform back, but it would make it easier to explain.Vendrick, hurry up and get ba...."Erm... i hope they don't mind waiting..."Uhhhh...nevermind. Take...take your time.
Ashe simply found herself staring at the barely clothed fox girl, taking in her petite form. Even after so many shocks in one day the sight was still more than enough to completely capture her attention, though she didn't feel so faint as she had in the changing room this time. Her mind inadvertently compared the differences between the two experiences, and while Izayoi certainly looked
much different than that time there was no denying that the same person stood in front of her. She simply felt
However, unlike before Izayoi showed no sign of playing around. She walked straight over, sat down, and pulled Ashe down onto the bed to place a kiss on her lips, leaving no doubt as to her intentions. Ashe could feel the heat coiling up through her again, tempting her to just give into it...but a single thought kept her from doing that just yet."W-wait...wait. It's..."
She managed, gently pushing Izayoi to the side as she sat up. "It's not...not fair like this. You've gone so far for me already so..."
She gulped. "I should do the same."
Standing up, she took a few steps away from the bed and turned around. She gave Izayoi one last look before she closed her eyes and exhaled slowly, reaching out with her will to take hold of the inseparable bond she held with Vendrick. He immediately responded, questioning, but she reassured him without a thought and let the flow of energy from her body slow to a stop. He simply accepted it, as if he understood immediately what was going on, and turned his attention back way from Ashe.
Almost instantly her true form began to show itself, heat radiating out from her like an open flame. Her clothes shrunk back into themselves, leaving her in a crop-top, jacket, and pants that showcased more than enough skin to show off how it was changing. At first it seemed like her entire body was getting embarrassed, with red splotches that kept growing larger and deeper in colour, spreading until her entire body was cherry red. Two swept back horns sprouted from her forehead, stretching out to part her short, white hair from the front while her ears lengthened to do the same from the sides. The most drastic change however was her hands: where before she had long, slender fingers, huge claws were beginning to form. Like her horns they almost appeared to be made of some kind of stone, with the growth ending just below her elbows.
By the time the changes finished the heat had died back down somewhat, though it was still noticeable close to Ashe's skin. Overall, in addition to the skin, horns, and claws, Ashe had gained a few more inches in height along with a spaded tail...and a few cup sizes. When she finally opened her eyes again they had turned a glowing yellow, and cat's eye pupils regarded Izayoi with a sad expression."Well, now you know. This is me, so...I understand if you've changed your mind. I just thought that since you...you..."
Her breath caught, leaving her unable to continue. With no words left to say she averted her eyes and clenched her hands, waiting for the fallout. The only thing she could do now was trust in Izayoi to not run screaming out the door.
