    The feel of Johann pressing his skin to hers in a comforting manner, the reassuring warmth he provided. She leaned into him, unable to help herself. She closed her eyes, she needed to compose herself. Remembering those things, sharing them was one thing, but she didn't want to upset him. It was clear from his words that he taking on blame, even though she'd told him she saw no fault in his actions. She would need to be mindful, she said nothing, taking a moment of peace to calm herself before slowly opening her eyes, arching her neck to look up at him. They had indeed as he'd stated, learned their lesson. It wasn't something she ever intended to attempt again, she could not endure it, nor could she bear a repeat of the consequence.

    He would follow with words that were enough to take her by surprise, her eyes widening and her heartbeat quickening slightly. Even though they had already admitted their feelings for one enough, hearing him say such things still flustered her. She bit her lip, trying to suppress the smile that attempted to force its way onto her face. She reached up, stroking his cheek tenderly with her fingers. She would lean over, eyes closing briefly as she kissed him softly. The gentle affectionate kiss a means to express her delight at his words before she pulled away to look at him once more. "You won't." She promised, it was a complicated vow, because, despite her words, she knew she had no idea what fate had in store for her. It was possible that death could snatch either of them at any moment, perhaps she was being foolish, promising him such a thing. But she couldn't help it, she wanted him to feel reassured. "For as long as you'll have me, I'll be here." She added, before offering one more soft kiss, a means to seal her promise.

    After pulling away, she would move, shifting her body so that she was now resting on her knees, facing toward him, her expression becoming serious. "At the very least... I know better now, better than to believe that I can exist without Anima. It seems that like you, I am destined to be-" She would sigh, somewhat dejectedly as she continued, "A vessel to one of these seals." She took a moment to contemplate what it was she would do, whilst she didn't want to bring the pleasant moment of peace they were sharing to an end, she knew there were things she needed to address and in order to address them, she would need to talk to them.

    "What I've yet to understand... is why this has happened to us in particular?" She moved her eyes back to Johann, except that she wasn't looking at just him, but also to the Nephilim that resided inside him. "What is the reason for these seals needing to reside in humans? Is there some motive or do you merely require a host in order to exist?" She also wasn't just addressing Mars at this point, but Anima as well, both had been quiet up until now, offering the couple their privacy. But it seemed that there were more pressing matters that needed to be discussed, information she was willing to sacrifice their privacy for.

    The kiss took him by surprise, but her approach wasn't unwelcome. It was moments like this one he would gladly lose himself in, and when they parted just a few seconds later, it was like instinctively, his body did not yet want to let go of her when she pulled away. Still, he smiled, and when she replied, seeming so confident and sincere in her words, Johann couldn't help but grin. A tranquil feeling of peace and, for the first time in a long, long while, the feeling of true happiness began to overwhelm him, drowning out doubt, drowning out the regret from before, replacing it with a sensation of acceptance and calm. This time he expected the kiss, leaning closer, enjoying the few seconds that passed before they separated once more. "I'm glad to hear that", the man answered, the smile still on his lips. He inhaled quietly, taking in a breath of air, leaning back and for a few moments simply remaining absorbed in this moment.

    That was, of course, until he looked over once more, meeting her eyes and the somewhat serious glint within them. It seemed that she did, now and after the events of today, accepted Anima as part of herself, but wasn't quite sure how to feel about it. Johann, if anything, understood the feeling all too well. When Mars had first begun conversing with him he thought that he had gone insane, he remembered it vividly still, and his body, before Mars created a vessel for the two, had not been too accepting of the Second Seal either. In particular, he recalled an instance where he spontaneously set himself alight as the runes began to burn. In a way he could emphasize with the circumstances plaguing Amalie, though, of course, he didn't quite know Anima and what he was like, apart from the fact that Mars seemed to think very highly of him. The two were brothers, so perhaps this fact wasn't too surprising. "I do not know what it is, but it seems that, somehow, it is as if our fates were intertwined with theirs, right?". Johann shook his head. He wasn't a big proponent of "fate" or anything that would suggest his life was predetermined for him, but the fact remained that the seal seemed to be compatible with their vessel in some way, in all cases. "I don't know what it is, but somehow, they seem to keep us in check, and we keep them in check, I suppose", he offered his own opinion, somewhat lamenting the fact that Amalie wanted to have a discussion at this time, though he had a feeling he owed her at least that much, especially after today, lest she would never accept Anima.

    When she continued, Johann felt the familiar stir in the back of his head, a writhing followed by a broad grin before his inner eye and an echoing cackle in his mind. Of course, Mars wouldn't be far away when the topic shifted to this, though it wasn't unwelcome. Johann himself didn't quite know how to answer Amalie, how to address her concerns, believing that Mars, having some ... first-hand experience would be better suited for this task. "Well ... from what Mars has told me it was that the Seals, whatever they are in the end, were sent to earth by some god himself. I suppose there is a reason why we have been chosen ... Mars?". Upon the Ambassador addressing the Seal, the latter reacted promptly, the vessel's left eye glowing with the usual charcoal black hue. "Okay, so, let me explain this to you, mortals", the deep voice bellowed forth in an almost offended tone, "Father is not "some god", he is the origin of Life and Light, he is the one and the only god to create you and us, and-". Johann struggled to get Mars out of his tirade but managed to speak as well, a somewhat curt and annoyed "Mars. Get to the point" stopping the Seal in his tracks. "Well, aaaanyway ...", Mars began anew, "We are only locked inside you mortals because we didn't get our own bodies, so don't get too ahead of yourselves. Father, in his divine wisdom, foresaw that we would be too hard to control on our own, and how right he was ...", the Seal's thoughts trailed off towards another one of his brothers previously belonging to the self-proclaimed Dragon King "... so of course, seven Seals were given to seven humans, who passed us down and boom, here we are". The explanation was ... vague at best, Johann not quite able to make sense of Mars' definition of their circumstances.

    Still, it seemed that Mars was not yet done. "Oh, also, you mortals are really good vessels for magical power. You don't explode when we give you our own energy, kind of a plus. Especially when you're created for stuff like bringing about an Apocalypse". "The what?", Joh questioned somewhat instinctively, Mars giggling to himself "Come on, old man, the name "Seven Seals of the Apocalypse" isn't just a title, ... tssehehe ..."

    Following her initial question, she would watch as Johann shook his head. Admitting to her his own lack of knowledge on the matter, she would nod at his suggestion. It certainly did feel that way, she found it hard to believe that the selection was purely random. Was it possible that they were really that unlucky? It just didn't that way, not to mention of all the bodies in the entire world that these so-called 'seals' could have claimed, they just so happened to claim Johann and Amalie. Two individuals who would eventually come together following her recruitment into the West Fiore Trading Company. It wasn't just them either, there was that fellow from Fairy Tail too. the red-head they'd done the job within Fat Monsterland, he was also believed to be a host. As far as Amalie was aware, there were seven seals in total, was it possible that in time she would meet more vessels, or perhaps she'd already met one without realizing.

    Johann would comment further, mentioning that whilst the vessels and seals kept each other in check. Which was something she wasn't entirely certain of, so far her experience with the seal inside her had been nothing but detrimental. Although somehow she had the feeling that was to do with her own reluctance to accept the seal as a part of her. As she spoke once more, moving deeper into her questioning of the seals and their connection to humans. She would Johann called Mars forth, Johann's left eye turning that familiar hue of black that indicated the seal's presence. She leaned back slightly at the booming voice of the rather disgruntled Seal of War, correcting Johann's means of addressing their 'Father', as he spoke, Amalie could feel movement within. The seal inside her own body would shift, having been keeping back until now, the presence of his brother would cause Anima to shift to the front of Amalie consciousness. It was strange, feeling him there alongside her, although it was significantly better than before, without the nausea. Mars almost seemed to move onto a tangent level of lecturing had Johann not interrupted and told Mars to 'get to the point'. So the seal would digress, explaining that without a human vessel, the seals were too difficult to entrust their own bodies too. The explanation albeit clear, seemed rather simplified, was that really it? They were just dumped in any old human, at least that was how she was interpreting it. "You say humans 'passed you down'. Are they passed down randomly or is there the potential that they are passed down amongst families?"

    It seemed that this question would prompt the Fifth Seal to speak, however unlike Mars who used Johann's mouth to speak. Anima's voice would merely echo throughout the room, as though he was sat amongst them. Although not projecting from any specific point in particular, "That would depend on the individual, in order to become a host, a vessel must be capable of maintaining us in the first place. Some vessels have been known to reappear in families as some bloodlines are more suited to such things. However, if there is no suitable heir, the seal may be transferred to a different vessel entirely." He explained, Amalie would nod. Thinking about her own bloodline, she was a descendant of the Blossoms. The history of Cordelia and Antoinette was proof enough to show that they were power in her family but never had she heard of any 'seals' or 'vessels' in her family history. Perhaps, she'd been chosen randomly instead.

    Mars would continue, explaining further about their ability to withstand magical power, and not exploding when the seals handed over their energy. He would then mention something that drew both the attention of herself and Johann. She had suspected something of the sort when she had researched the seals of the book of life. Although this was the first time it had been confirmed. "The Final Judgement, huh?" Amalie commented softly, it was an unnerving concept, an apocalypse being brought down on the way at the command of a so-called 'god'. She wasn't sure how to feel about it. She bit the inside of her cheek, "So from the sounds of it, were myself or Johann to die, I'm right in assuming that you guys would just move on to the next vessel. Does this mean the seals are immortal or can they be destroyed?" She had another question, although she wasn't sure how well it would be received. Still, she had to ask, for the sake of her own security. "Also, can a seal kill its own vessel or does it always require the aid of another seal?"

    When Anima spoke up, answering the woman's question, Mars would grin, sitting up and folding his hands as he listened, bopping his head from side to side in amusement. "Seven Seals, bestowed to seven bloodlines, to slumber until the day would come". The Seal seemed almost a little disappointed when those words left the vessel's mouth. "If the day ever comes", his eyes shifting to the Articulation Mage and vessel of the Fifth Seal. "The Final Judgement, indeed", repeating it with a soft giggle.

    The next point the woman brought up caused Mars to tilt his head, the grin continuing to dominate the man's expression, releasing a cackling laugh before he spoke. "IF the old man ever dies, somehow, one way or the other, I already have my next vessel picked out, tssehehe ...". This comment, of course, would serve to invoke even the Ambassador's curiosity. "And just who exactly would that be?", the grin subsided for Johann to speak, just before returning to the vessel's face a moment later. "If I told you that wouldn't be any fun, now, would it?". Johann sighed. Mars was as ... difficult to talk to as always, only ever giving vague or simple answers and always doing his own thing. At times, it was frustrating, although admittedly, the silver-haired Rune Mage had gotten used to the Seal and his antics over the past year.

    Still, the next point caused Mars to raise an eyebrow. "Don't get any ideas, vessel", the unchanging grin remaining as he spoke, "Naturally, we are immortal. Only Father has the power to bring us salvation and grant us access to his eternal paradise, of course". The girl seemed curious about the nature of the Seals themselves, Johann listening quietly when Mars addressed her, learning the odd thing or two he, too, hadn't known about Mars, the Seven Seals in general, before. Finally, the next question, as Amalie had correctly foreseen, irked the Lord of War somewhat. "Kill our vessel? Of course not, that would be nothing short of Blasphemy! It was, it is, and it will be Father's will to grant us a vessel, grant the vessel a Seal. To go against the fate he has set for both the Seal and the vessel is an insult! An affront! I will not-".

    "Mars!", Johann voice would ring out, the somewhat angered grin fading away, "Calm down. She just asked you a question". "Hmpf", the Seal grumbled in response, obviously disliking the harsh words, from its own vessel nonetheless. "In any case, the only reasons a Seal would kill another Seal's vessel would be an accident ...", Mars expression turned a little more sour, remembering the man that had called himself the "Skeleton King", Godfrey, and his brother Aegror. "... or a blatant misuse of a Seal's power. But that is typical for humans. You would do everything for power, even going so far as to abuse the gift that God has given you for your own degenerate purposes". "Charming, really", Johann would reply swiftly, Mars' grin returning in full. "Consider yourself lucky that our goals seem to align then, second vessel", Mars would address the God of Ishgar before turning to Amalie. "So, fifth vessel, does that satisfy your curiosity?", he asked with a sly tone, "Or are there any other questions I may answer for you?".

    Amalie's eyes met the seals, watching him as his head bobbed from side to side, reiterating her remark about the final judgement. She bit the inside of her cheek, not entirely settled by his reaction. His giggle, his hint; if that day ever comes... It was an ominous possibility. A far as the stories went, the final judement was not a pleasant experience. At least not for the sinners, whether Amalie would be classed as a sinner. Well, that remained to be seen, she wasn't exactly pure, and she did kill her husband. Murder was the greatest sin was it not?

    Mars's next words irked the woman further, how easily he dismissed Johann's life, ready to move onto the next. "How reassuring," She replied in a sarcastic tone, not making any attempt to hide her dissatisfaction. As they digressed, it seemed that Mars would not take her questions kindly, particular the one about whether it was possible for a seal to kill their vessel. She listened passively, unphased by the seal's reaction, even as Johann interrupted. Explaining to the seal that it was but a question, and it was, she was less concerned about keeping him sweet and finding out the risks of keeping the seal inside her. Now that it seemed like there wasn't really much choice in the matter anymore. "I see, so as long as we behave huh." She replied, more to herself than anything.

    As he questioned whether this was enough to sate her, curiosity. She nodded, "No, that's quite alright, in fact, if anything. I'd like some privacy, so if you could, you know, step in the other room or whatever it is that you seals do when, well, you know." Then was a somewhat, awkward cough, and then she would feel Anima's presence shrink away. As she waited for it to just be her and Johann again, she sighed, relaxing a little. She shifted onto her side, lying back down onto the bed once more, propping herself up on her elbow and resting her face against her chin. "I just find it so bizarre, Johann. Having this being inside me, this living entity that I knew nothing about. Capable of god knows what, able to control my very being if they wanted to." She admitted to him, she reached other, tugging his arm lightly, indicating that she wanted him to move closer to her. It was something she was beginning to notice, but just feeling his warmth put her more at ease.

    "But I suppose..." She smirked up at him, reaching up to run her hands through his silver locks, "At the very least it brought something good." Her eyes scanned his face, admiring his features. Just meeting his gaze had an unquestionable effect on her, and know that she had admitted her feelings, she was even weaker to resist such urges. Which made her ponder another potential dilemma, "Johann, you know that, everything I told you, my ...feelings. You know that they are genuine right?" She began, "And now that you know this and well, reciprocated those feelings. I have to wonder, how are we going to address the issue of our standing with each other in the guild? If we're honest, you're my boss, and if history serves truthfully, dating your boss isn't often well-received, even with the more genuine of situations." She turned her gaze away, feeling a little frustrated by the idea that her wanting to be with Johann had to potential to cause some, unwanted complications for the man. "I don't want you to have to compromise anything because of me."

    "Ahhh ... I see. I'll go, make sure you don't have too much fun without me, tssehehe ...", with Mars would, upon Amalie's request, return to the depths of the Ambassador's subconsciousness, Johann closing his eyes for a second before opening them once more, his left eye back to a normal state, Johann feeling Mars presence gradually fade away until it was reduced to nothing but a subtle, dull ripple in the back of his mind that calmed quickly. Johann took a deep breath. The feeling of the Second Seal's presence was always accompanied by an intense sting within his chest, although the Rune Mage had gotten used to the unique sensation by now. It was strange to think that the only thing keeping him alive was Mars, in the end. The Seal had said that he'd already picked his next vessel, but if that was the case, why would he not only give the Ambassador a new heart but also keep it beating using his own magical energy? Why did he not just let the silver-haired man die in the Cursed Lands as had been undoubtedly his destiny? It proved to be a contradiction that left Johann perplexed, but Mars wasn't easy to read. At all. Who knew what the Lord of War really thought, really planned? As far as the Second Seal's vessel was concerned Mars was always up to something, but never quite revealed his intentions to anyone unless absolutely forced to. Whatever it really was, Joh couldn't be sure regardless.

    The Ambassador leaned back into his pillow, sitting upright, his head leaning against the wall of his bedroom behind him, turning it over to face Amalie, who seemed more relaxed now that they were amongst themselves again, nodding in response. It was bizarre indeed, considering that even when the two were seemingly alone in a moment like this one right now, they were never truly alone. Johann had made his fair share of experiences with the Seal, be they good or bad, but in the end, the fact remained that Mars had helped him, picked him up when barely anyone else would, and elevated him to heights he only ever could've dreamed of before. For the majority of his life, Johann had been unable to pursue his goals, only Mars' magic allowing him to do so, and for that, for finally granting him peace, he was grateful. "I can't say for certain what they, the Seals, are planning, or what their real purpose is, where they really come from, but ... I am giving Mars a chance. It's quite curious ...", Johann narrowed his eyes, averting his gaze for a few seconds in contemplating thought. "... Mars is a terrifying creature, and I never seem to be able to guess his motives, and yet ... oddly enough, I trust him ... I'd even go so far as to say with my life". Perhaps the Ambassador was talking more to himself than Amalie, rationalizing the Seal's presence for his own peace of mind before snapping out of it when he felt her touch on his arm, looking over before smiling softly, moving closer to her and placing his arm around her shoulders.

    He looked down at her ice-blue eyes, listening to her soft voice, her proximity filling him with a feeling of warmth and comfort that he had thought lost, smiling gently. "Oh? Is that so?", the man asked in a subtly teasing tone, grinning with a satisfied expression. What she was implying made him strangely happy, a nervous, but satisfying tingle running slowly through his body confirming that he would feel the same way. It was something that had previously been unknown to Johann, at least in this form, and this entire experience, these feelings were new to him, new, but not unwelcome.

    "I know", he responded simply, but with a confident tone. Johann had learned to trust Amalie, and believed her when she'd explained how she'd felt, just as he expected her to believe him. Still, despite this, the man was somewhat perplex by her question, softly raising an eyebrow. "Issue?", the man responded, unaware of and perhaps a little ignorant to her point, not quite understanding how exactly the guild would impede their relationship, if at all. "I don't know how us being together would compromise anything", he replied honestly and sincerely. Who was there to tell him off?
