    Oras flipped through the pages of his most recent book tiredly. He hadn't been able to sleep lately, mainly because he was still going through shock. Normally shock was either short or lasted a day at most. However seeing as how within an hour he was powerless, killed, and went through the sensation of feeling his body and even molecules torn to shreds before being put back together again by his anomaly of a soul. He believed that he was entitled to being in shock longer than others. Of course he was starting to adjust, but only starting to. His chaotic soul was more riled up now than before, still shifting and changing. But now he was feeling the emotions of those around him and had no control over it. Therefore he sought out solitude now more than ever. Right now since he wasn't capable of sleeping he chose to stay in the library and keep researching, looking, investigating for some sort of information, evidence or clues that would help him understand this soul of his. And how to tame and control it in some way.

    He shook his head as he repeated one of his phrases in his head: Control was nothing more than an illusion. Nothing was true save for that there was no truth. Oras closed the book and sighed in frustration as Sova passed by. The owl looked at Oras carefully before speaking up.
    "You should sleep, you don't function as I do Verus." "I know that, but I can't sleep. And no I won't talk about what happened there. Just, please help me figure this out. Your guild master boasts about how much knowledge this place has so there has to be something here." Sova looked at Oras a bit curiously, mainly due to the fact that Oras had said 'your' guildmaster instead of 'the' guild master. As if he wasn't a part of any of this. He stood up in frustration, passing his mask that lay on the table. Originally it was for his protection. To hide his emotions, his gaze, and keep people from recognizing him in case he needed to just vanish. Now that his soul was awake however that was impossible. Now it's only use was in battle when he wished to hide where he was looking... Or to become more intimidating. However the mask wasn't designed to be intimidating. He'd need to rethink everything...

    It had been a few days since the assassin had been recruited and employed to work for the Black Rose guild and she was bored out of her mind. At first, she had simply set up shop and made herself at home within the guild. Yet, it did not take long for her to adapt to her new surroundings causing her to become restless for the following days. It was no wonder seeing as how she had been instructed to stay cooped up in her room for the time being by Mattheus. As to why, only the gods knew.  She had had nothing to do and she was itching to go out to do some exploring. Unfortunately for her, though, Mattheus was always on the lookout and refused to allow her to go out. Even if for just a short period of time. Still, even if she did go out, she hadn’t truly met anyone as her entrance to the guild had been behind closed doors. Perhaps it was to hide the reason she was there in the first place but she had always thought it to be weird. After all, she needed to expand her network and work her way into becoming an asset for the guild members.

    Still, she couldn’t help but recall how this had all started. It had seemed so ordinary in the beginning until things took an interesting turn for her. After all, it wasn’t everyday that a purebred assassin was employed by a law-abiding guild. At first, she had originally been summoned by one of her most frequent employers so she hadn’t believed it to be out of the ordinary. That was, though, until she realized the reason behind it all. For, in the midst of the meeting was a strange woman who held a sense of dignity and might to her. Her appearance was beautiful as it was powerful so the assassin couldn’t help but be confused. Still, she had not shown it but her eyes did hold suspicion. After all, she doubted that her frequent employer would send in the dogs. He did still have use for her and she had made sure of it. When the talks finally began, it was made evident that the leader of the Black Rose guild had come calling for her to which the assassin agreed wholeheartedly to. After all, it was definitely in her line of expertise. As to the reasons why, though… She grinned inwardly, it would remain only between her and the higher-ups.

    The assassin stretched as far as her arms could go and yawned causing a glare from the small bird perched on top of the coathanger. The assassin ignored it and continued to pace around the room. The job paid decently but she was sure that the networking she would do would make the mission all the worthwhile. It would, perhaps, give her clues as to where her old Master had gone. Still, though, she needed to actually get out to get started. Now, it was her turn to glare at the bird to which it rolled its eyes at her in turn. This frustrated the assassin even more. Therefore, the assassin did the only logical thing (sarcasm) and fell back onto the bed in defeat. Mattheus then grinned at her and wriggled its tiny body in satisfaction at her surrender. ”Get your lazy butt out there and meet some people,” Mattheus snickered at her restless demeanor. ”Might actually do you some good.” The tiny bird then flapped its wings and disappeared out of her window while the assassin growled a retort. She should have known. Still, she appreciated the freedom and quickly exited out of the room.

    As the assassin wandered around the guild hall, she adjusted her mask in pleasant curiosity. Sure she had heard that the guild was beautiful but not like this. It was obviously a hotspot for tourists but she had never seen it herself. This left her amused as she made a mental note of everything and anything that she saw and witnessed. It would definitely prove vital for whenever there was an emergency. Of the people, though, she could only obtain numbers. At least, for now. Still, it only went to show how much she still had left to learn. Unfortunately, though, as she walked casually by, weird glances came her way but the assassin ignored them. She was used to it and she could definitely understand why a masked woman would seem so out of place. Still, though, she would attempt to make a getaway to a more secluded place. People would come, perhaps, and ask her questions. Questions she would not be able to answer until later. Therefore, to avoid any potential risks, she slipped into the shadows and made her way to a place unknown.

    Her feet guided her towards a set of doors that seemed to coax her in. This, the assassin obliged to and opened them. Upon doing so, she was greeted by a place beyond words. In fact, it looked like a magical wonderland than the libraries she had grown accustomed to. In other words, it was absolutely breathtaking. Her mouth dropped in surprise and childlike glee spread over her. Perhaps, being employed by the guild wouldn’t be a bad thing after all. The assassin ventured in, making sure to appreciate the layout of the place. The library was absolutely mesmerizing and she was certain that she would find herself in there quite frequently. After all, she was a great lover of books and quite the avid reader. Her eyes carefully scanned the rows and lines of books and other items that lay in wait. They seemed to beckon and call for her but she kept on going. For now, she simply wished to make a map of the layout first. Even if just for a section of the immense establishment.

    The further she went in, the grander it seemed so much so that the assassin was reaching towards a book. Her fingers brushed its cover and sighed happily. She would finally decide to give into that desire and grabbed the leather-back book from its resting place. Opening it up, she began to read as her legs guided her further and further in to the library. Her eyes would unconsciously dart over to a group of chairs and beanbags in which she was more than happy to head towards. The assassin would grin underneath her mask. If there was anything she liked better than reading, it was reading and relaxing on a comfy and homey setting. This place was perfect. She would then plop on one of her beanbags, knees crossed almost to her chest in a comfortable position. She would close her mind off and focus on her light reading. She flipped a page and sighed in content. After all, who in the world would be up so late?

    Oras continued to look through the pages of the book he was currently reading. It was an advanced list of known lineages and lores, even ones that were meant to be kept hidden. If they were discovered by someone they were written into this book. Unfortunately Oras couldn't find anything that matched his soul or abilities. He found several lineage and lines that were linked to chaos, but none of the powers or descriptions matched Oras' case. Soon enough, in frustration, he closed the book sharply, it's force making a small thud sound He sighed in frustration as he set the book aside and leaned his face into his hands which rested on the table. He was too tired for this, but he was too anxious, too nervous, too stressed to get any actual sleep. It was infuriating but the more he tried the less it worked out for him. He was thinking too much about his soul, the black rose guild, his apprentice, Izayuki, and everything in general. The less he tried to think the more thoughts arose in his head. He was mentally on edge, not aggressive, but very quick to react to any sound that would occur. And when the doors opened up he nearly fell out of his seat and summoned an illusion in the shape of a book, looking through the illusion to see who was there. He was surprised to see someone he hadn't known existed until now. The figure was a woman, who wore a mask that covered the lower half of her face. His own mask had been destroyed so he immediately used his magic to make it seem like his mask was there. A silver mask with a black slit visor (similar to mandalorian masks).

    He immediately moved to another location as his instincts took over. His nervous and anxious thoughts lost, losing against the influence of his defensive instinct. He observed the individual who, despite having an ominous appearance, switched to a very cheerful and happy attitude. She almost seemed, giddy. When she moved around the library Oras continued to walk, keeping out of her sight the entire time. He ensured, using his magic to alter the light particles around his body that he was invisible, and also controlled the sound waves he made so that she wouldn't hear him or anything he touched either. Becoming completely invisible unless she had a passive way to pierce through his magic and detect him anyway. He winced as he could feel her emotions, the overwhelming joy and excitement of being in such a wondrous and massive library, the adventurous nature wanting to read everything in the- Oras shook his head and dampened the emotion. If he wasn't having minor ptsd right now then he may enjoy the feeling, but not only was he unable to enjoy it right now, it wasn't his right to invade her privacy like that. However despite the fact that he didn't want to feel her emotions he couldn't help it. He hadn't mastered the ability and thus had no control over it. Soon she settled down and began reading a book. Oras waited for a moment or two before deciding it was safe, calming his anxiety levels down a bit and canceled his magic, allowing him to be seen and heard again. He walked softly to another bookshelf where the next book on his list was, and happened to be in view of the stranger.
