She knew he would have been preparing himself for her next strike, his mind had likely went through the many thousands of way she could strike him and how he would be able to counter before striking in return. The thing was she had always held back when using her scythe against him, she had no idea why she had done it, it was something that she always had done so. It might have been that she didn't understand the scythe that well herself. No, that was a lie. She had always understood it and what it could do, it was part of her after all. A physical manifestation of her soul, so why, why did she hold back so many years ago. To her there could only be two reasons, she either believed that he wasn't ready to see this ability or she wanted to wait for the correct time to show it, a time where they would to bare everything to the other. She was strongly swayed to the latter but now she knew one of the many secrets her scythe held, as she just now realised she never really triggered any of its abilities when they fought as children. In honesty she never really wanted to use it against him after the day she had killed him and by some divine miracle been brought back to her, it was the day she became scared of herself and what she could do.
She watched the aftermath of her attack, how the demons were fully unprepared and met walls at full force, some of them going right through the walls of the church, she honestly couldn't help but snicker at that. "Can't find the help these days, hu Trase."
she commented her guard always on guard because she had no idea what to expect next. As she thought Cirven had managed to adapt quickly but he still was pushed back several feet with glass cutting and digging into his skin but the injuries inflicted once again healing much like her own. Her eyes quickly flashed to the others like them seeing how they had fared with her surprise of an attack. She noticed they had been injured themselves as they were also thrown back but managed to do what was needed to keep it from being more than a minor annoyance that would take a few hours at most to heal. They must have known what was going to happen placing herself and Cirven so close together after the last fight they had, they had went against with each other with so much energy that they left permanent marks on the other, their blood had mingled to create whatever the hell she was now.
It was then her eyes went wide, she was the child of a primordial there would have been no way this would have happened by someone of a lesser line, this meant that Cirven himself came from a primordial line himself. More than this however that what had happened to her would have also affected him in the same way, she chuckled quietly as he would soon find out he now had a similar weakness to her own crystal but that would only show when his weapon did. That was future Demari's problem, today's Demari just wanted to enjoy this day with him. This wasn't a normal fight for them, they were testing their everything to see if the eternal union would be possible, they wouldn't accept the other if there was a millisecond of doubt or hesitation, if they held back they wouldn't and couldn't allow such a bond to happen. They wanted to see everything, feel everything, experience everything the other had to offer without prohibitions they might have normally. To the Devils and demons that were still conscious and not through the walls, they may have seen the two as monsters given what they were doing to each other and how they could take what the other could do to them. The Detergers could see the two children they grew up together, forced to fight each other more often than not in the bliss that was their dance of death.
Her eyes went to the side a little as she heard the building making noises, it almost sounded like it was in pain, if it was a living thing there would be a good chance it would have been really close to death. This didn't bother her to much as she moved her eyes back to Cirven once more, they had caused the building around them to be less structurally sound but in that moment she didn't believe either of them cared. Their could be a war happening around them and yet to them it wouldn't have been there, there was only them, nothing else in existence mattered. Not here. Not now. Now was the time of their union, a union that would live eternally regardless of what life they may be in. A love they experienced in such a unique way, a way no one could understand. How could they? Their union was almost at a close, they could both feel it. They knew that the other was strong enough to take everything the other could give, they knew if a family was ever created from this union their children would be protected by someone just as strong as them. Most of all they knew that their lives, their very essence could only be claimed by the other. The was no other strong enough, worthy enough of doing such an act. That being said they would welcome anyone to try do it, though it would likely have them pay the ultimate price themselves.
She had endured test after test to prove she wanted to be with her family and most of all with him, she had turned her back on her twin brother, her cousins and attacked the only other she ever truly treasured almost as much as the man she was now bound to. She had made many contingencies in case she had to choose and all she could do was hope that they were strong enough to give them a challenge to what was to come. She had opened the locket and watched the memory, it was indeed a beautiful one, a union of its own in a way. They had become family after been on their own for years but still it was strange that he had kept it there after the change. She noticed the grin but paid little attention for the moment, it would be something himself would explain before long. "It was dangerous for them to make it."
she stated the method was thought lost for one reason or another, of course it stood to reason if anyone knew how to do it, it would be them. She believed this was also taboo for royals to do of their race but she would need to check on that one at a later point. "It helped you? How?"
she was confused at the aspect that a trinket could help someone so much.
She nodded to how he said he couldn't bring himself to destroy it due to how much her cousins had put into crafting the thing. She had to admit, it was beyond beautiful. It was a gift worthy of a royal and expect her cousins would have offered nothing more than perfection to the one who had adopted their summoner. She listened to him for a moment her eyes closing as her head turned away "You have no idea..."
she whispered quietly, it was somewhat painful for her to think back to that place "I didn't and still don't understand why he tried so hard to protect me. It is clear his body is far weaker than my own and yet he would never allow me to take any punishment, he gave me the safety and warmth he could, any food or water he found he would give me before he himself ate."
she turned to look at him "I don't understand why he done it... there where days he went with nothing and still wore a smile as if he was fine... that it was fine."
she said the barbs slowly coming from her scythe wrapping around her and cutting into her skin making her purplish-black blood trickle from the wounds but it didn't seem to affect her in anyway. "He won't join us Trase, he doesn't want to harm anyone."
she said with a sigh "We both know he has a submissive personality and he is a pacifist..."
she put her hand through her hair grazing her new horns "Even if there is no other option he would still likely prefer die than fight."
she said with a frustrated tone, it was a waste though she understood it.
She smiled nodding to his words about helping Ruvel more "Perhaps he can see the truth of things, but..."
she paused for a moment cupping his cheek in her hand "We also must be prepared to end him, this will be a little difficult as Oykai has claim on him."
she explained giving information that normally wouldn't be given out "It was how the twins prevented the death, he refused to claim."
she continued her explanation of the situation. She listened to his stuttered chuckling before the laughter that followed, she was confused however when it came to an abrupt end. Their eyes glued to the others, she allowed her scythe to vanish as she knew right now she wouldn't need it, their fight had come to an end; at least for the moment. "He didn't give me the freedom of death and it was the first time I seen him commit a selfish act..."
she paused for a moment to think "Perhaps it wasn't as selfish as I first believed but he could hear or see something that we ourselves forgot. What if he forced the contract so we could have this time together."
she whispered so only he could hear. Ruvel had always had strange senses, senses that no normal person could have in her opinion but as he was still a mystery to himself there was of course things she didn't know even during her time in his service as a summon.
Seeing him lean closer to her, she precipitated and lent in closer to him. Her hand never moving from his cheek even as their lips met is a deeply passionate kiss, her eyes closing sealing their union for not only this life but every lifetime after it. They would be forever bound to one another and this was something she believe they could both live with, it was during this time that something strange happened they began to emit strange energies that seemed to harmonise with the other. This became more apparent as the kiss came to an end and the seemed to somewhat excite the air died down as their foreheads met, this moment of both who they once were and who the currently are finding that perfect balance. It was obviously short lived as the moment was broken thanks to Ves speaking out and quickly retreating as Cirven gave a warning shot to back off. He had removed his head and her, her hand before Ves was dealt with, her eyes going to the armlet that had been removed from her arm "I've been wearing it for six years, I totally forgot about it."
she said her voice showing honesty as it had just become a part of her, she actually not felt naked with out it. "It feels odd not to be wearing it at current.
"she knew he wanted her to explain it and she would comply with the unspoken request. "Rui and I were paired I think a few weeks after he had arrived."
she started her eyes looking at the coloured glass.
She knew what it meant to be paired there, it was a union in its own right; they were as good as married in the eyes of he facility. "Rui has the other one of the pair that he wears on his left arm."
she looked to the broken window to the sky outside "I guess it was a kind of marriage or betrothal in there, he was five at the time and I was twelve at the time. The told us what would be expected of us when he came of age, what it meant to be paired...."
she closed her eyes for a moment before looking at his a weak smile on her lips "That's what that meant, we were paired... a way for them to keep us in check, if one done wrong both were punished but he wouldn't allow me to be harmed..."
she said her fingers going over the blue tainted glass of the armlet "Now you know."
she said attempting to get the armlet back from him.@Cirven
