Holy fire burns again
the magic circle is all around it, burning like the innocence of love
Kanix chuckled when she overheard Mashyuu muttering to himself about how he should have gone to get her. It was a long travel, but Ancalagon knew how to take care of her and make sure that no harm would come to her or the child. When she heard him murmur that he was a terrible person for not coming to pick her up and telling her to meet him here instead, she frowned. She didn't like hearing him in a state like this, especially since he was doing everything he could to make her happy. Reaching down, the woman would place a slender, cold-fingered hand on the cheek of her lover to calm him.
"Please, don't say that, Mashyuu," the shamaness murmured to him, sorrow on her voice as she spoke to him. "You are not a terrible person for telling me to meet you here; you were simply excited about being able to do this is all."
She smiled as his head lifted up and scanned the dress that she was wearing, eyes ogling and staring at her physique. A blush crossed over her face a little, as if she was embarrassed to have such a reaction occur from the Sabertooth mage. "It's a little revealing, I know," the woman responded in a soft voice, wrapping the translucent cape closer to her bodice. "They said it fit my style though, so I went ahead and agreed with their standpoint; I figured you'd like it, too." Kanix giggled a little and breathed out swiftly, growing wide-eyed as Mashyuu complimented her appearance at best. "I-I. . . I'm not the prettiest woman in all of Fiore; I'm fairly certain there are other women who are far prettier than me." Another laugh left her lips, one that sounded strained and a little flustered with the comment he made toward her.
She felt his arm slip around hers and she glanced upward, only to hear him ask if she could connect her vision to his. Reaching upward, she'd press her hand to one cheek and pull him down to kiss his other cheek, connecting their vision. "I'll do that just for you, love," Kanix murmured against his face before releasing him and blinking her eye. Turning her face away from him, she looked at the restaurant they were now standing in, her mouthing gaping a little. "It's so beautiful. . ." Her eye flickered around to take in the surroundings, never once staying on a single thing for too long. They would follow a man toward a booth in the back, where they sat down and had drinks quickly served to them. Wine was settled by them, but alcohol wasn't something she could have anymore, even if it was a tiny amount.
Her sight was short lived, for the moment the two of them had settled down comfortably, Mashyuu was facing toward her. For the first time in a long time, she could see how others saw her from their point of view, and it was amazing. . . no. . . it was terrible. It was as if she looking through a mirror at herself, able to see every flaw that countered the beauty one saw in her. She ignored what Mashyuu was saying to trail her fingertips along the scars that trickled down her face like tears. The missing eye that Sol had took and the glazed over look of the one that remained as her only connection to the world. Kanix bit her lip and clipped the connection between Mashyuu's vision and hers, calmed by the darkness that now swelled her sight. Seeing herself in the eyes of others only made her view worse on herself or perhaps it was because she could clearly see every flaw of hers.
She blinked and focused back onto her boyfriend, staring at him and trying to recall what he had said to her. "Oh! Yes, you're welcome," she responded quietly to him, giving Mashyuu a small smile, then glancing away from him. "This is all really romantic of you to do; I don't know what to think of it. . . actually, I didn't think you were capable of such romancing." Kanix chuckled a little, then tilted her head a bit when she heard him asking her if the trip was good and how she had been. "The trip was good, yes, aside from Ancalagon not really listening to my instructions and I have been great since our last trip. Mashyuu. . . nothing is wrong with the child, I absolutely promise you that. You don't need to worry about her." A hand reached forward again and placed itself upon one of his, squeezing it lightly and in a comforting way.
