    Yona Hisamori wore her regular company uniform. She assumed if Oyaki was requesting to speak with her, no taunts, no insults, no sideways remarks, that it had to be a serious situation. Yona normally might have refused the arrogant pest reaper, but if a reaper found it to be a serious event, so should she. She wore her white boots, her black skirt, and a long buttoned-up white coat with blackened edging, almost blending in with the skirt itself. Her WFTC pin was on her right bicep and her hair, having grown out a bit, touched down to her shoulders. She pinned the bangs to her side in order to look more professional before heading to the portals themselves.

    Once there, she paced. It was an expansive place of which she knew almost nothing. Yona had half a mind to go find the reaper, having shown up more than an hour early this time. Still, the plant mage knew if anything, the reaper would be able to find her location no matter where she was. Ketsueki smacked his lips in her mind, "You're meeting with the reaper guy? The one who's always toying with you? You're asking for trouble aren't you, little girl?" Yona frowned, thinking her reply back to the demon. "There's a reason I'm blocking you out from hearing and seeing what I do. It's serious enough that I don't plan on allowing you to get involved." Ketsueki seemed offended by this, sapping some of Yona's strength to bolster his own. Yona jerked control back in less than a second. "No. Not involved at all. Stay quiet, now. He'll be here soon enough." Fighting with the demon was occasionally like fighting with a toddler, pulling on the same mind in her body like a toy that could not be split and comprised between the two. In reality, Yona was determined to have arrived before Oykai himself. She felt the need to prove to him that she was reliable, and not always late to her meetings.

    Oykai's Request


    Where it was true a lot had happened of late to the one he held contract with, it had also affected the blue haired reaper in ways he hadn't expected it to. He had always kept people at arms length and he was fine with this, it had put his mind at ease and made a difficult job easier. Now however, there he wasn't at ease, in fact he was in turmoil and it had made his reaper weapon all but useless at current. It was heavy to the point he couldn't even open the front cover no matter how hard he tried. When such things happened he would usually talk to his twin sister Demi but this time she was part of this problem and his cousins though while could be reapers weren't, they had no taste for the job not that he could exactly blame them. Had he gotten a choice he wouldn't want the worst job in existence. Reapers only done their jobs but got blamed for taking people from their loved ones nine times out of ten, it was why he decided to become a hunter primarily over a reaper which his twin was. Still it left him with a problem he had no one he could confide in to try and get this weight from him.#

    After a long internal debate and argument with himself he finally wrote a letter to one of the two mortal people he could somewhat stand. One of them being the woman he had met and introduced him to air freshener but he didn't know her name or even which guild she belonged to so that made that one difficult. Then again this had to deal with more than himself and he doubted his young summoner would want someone they had only met once knowing the troubles that were currently going on. Then again this likely could and would be frowned upon by many, he was a God of Ishgar after all, one of the strongest recognised mages out there and he had been attacked to the point he had a complete break down. He honestly didn't blame the blonde haired youth, the attack had been sudden and from someone he trusted like family but this betrayal wasn't the first of its kind as his so called adoptive brother had done the exact same thing several months before in his 'Devil Jester' persona. To this day he knew that, that persona still scared his young summoner and had to wonder would end up as one of his fears too. He couldn't blame him if that was the case, she had tried to kill him.

    He had decided in the end even with a continued argument with himself to send a request to the only other person he himself had contact with. He sent a letter to the green haired mage within his summoners company requesting that she meet him at the portals, he had set the time for sunset and a week from when he left the message for her. In honesty he had no idea if she would turn up, he knew as a reaper he was less than pleasant but this was bigger than that for him. He looked to the gen that dangled from his waist for a moment before shaking his head, the reminder of the very first time he broke his primary cast's rules, the only time he refused to reap someone and so now held claim to that person or so it would seem. He knew every second that they were permitted to live over that day made things worse for him but he didn't mind this, he could live with it at least for the moment. He still wished he knew why he didn't claim the person and even now couldn't do it but perhaps that was something that he would understand in time.

    For the week he done nothing but look for ways to help his summoner, he hadn't even came out of his room though kept an eye on the time and day so he wouldn't miss the meeting time. When the day had arrived he left his room and went to the agreed meeting spot though remained in his incorporeal form so people could pass him and wouldn't even know he was there. Being a natural telepath he picked up on surface thoughts and deeper without issue but being that he was preoccupied it was more like it was through a wind tunnel so he couldn't pick up words. On hearing her tone however he looked up seeing her and smiled, he closed the book standing now becoming corporeal. He was wearing a blue yukata robe with a smoke like pattern on the bottom and sleeves, a white mantle with tassels and glasses. The souls were still seen in his blood ruby eyes but he wasn't four foot eight inches, he stood over six foot at current a weak smile on his lips as he placed his tome under his arm "Thank you for meeting me Yona, you're over an hour early however. Did you have another task to do here?" he asked his voice gentle towards her.

    The guild mage took out the folded up letter one more time as she paced. The place sort of unnerved her in general, not really knowing where the portals took people or how the travel itself managed to work. It reminded her of how much she disliked teleportation for travel, thinking that just about every other feasible way came without levels of nausea and with the certainty of ending up where you planned. Yona had heard stories of portals and teleportation spells gone wrong, and while they could be without a doubt useful, she would have preferred to ride a donkey blindfolded over them unless otherwise necessary. The pacing helped distract her from her worries, from the strange portals around, and from the demands of the demon inside of her mind. Yona reread the letter and folded it back up, turning to see a tall male with blue hair and glasses. She hadn't heard him walking towards her, hadn't seen his approach, and hadn't sensed him in the slightest. Yona let out a breath, narrowing her eyes on him until he spoke with a gentle voice.

    "You?" The mage said both surprised and suspicious, realizing she still didn't know his name and had not expected to see someone so tall, or so gentle. He looked scholarly and intelligent, the glasses and the book under his arm giving her the impression that he was not the same person that she had gone to Bellum with or the one she had dealt with in her exam with Ruvel. In fact, they didn't look similar at all to her recollection, though his red eyes and the souls that had made her uneasy the first time she has seen them, told her that this was Ruvel's guardian and Yona's own tormentor. Ketsueki crooned in her head, "Does he remind you of when he called himself Jasper Hisamori? I can tell you approve of this new look." Yona felt her cheeks start to heat up with the demon's bothersome comments. "I told you to be quiet," the woman reminded the demon telepathically. She relaxed after meeting Oykai's eyes, lifting and dropping a shoulder in a half-shrug, "I know how you are about timing. I guess I wanted to show you that I was reliable." She kept her lack of knowledge of these portals and the unease she felt near them to herself.

    Yona looked him up and down, trying to be discreet. "I didn't expect you to look so..." She swallowed, trying to come up with an appropriate word. "Tall." She gestured to the book and then tilted her head, "Were you waiting long here for me? I didn't see you coming." Yona glanced at the gem hanging from his waist and pursed her lips. The man had not seemed like the materialistic sort before, she surmised that maybe it was more than a decoration. Still, he had asked her here for a reason, and she knew that based on his words from multiple other meetings that he would throw her off a cliff it meant helping Ruvel. It was obvious to her that he didn't place much value on her life, if she were to believe the things he had told her before. Questioning him about his new appearance, his gentle demeanor, or his book and gemstone seemed irrelevant in the face of something with greater importance. "Your request to meet me was quite unusual. You didn't just want to get together and chat, I imagine?"

    For a moment the blue haired male's eyes was on the letter that she had been reading during her pacing, even from where he was standing he knew that was the letter that he had sent to her. It was then he realised that she was glaring at him his hands coming up flat towards her a nervous smile on his face as his eyes closed, his book floating in front of him "Sorry for startling Yona." he said a slight nervous tone heard in his voice as he brought up his left his hand scratching his cheek a little "I keep forgetting that I don't make noise as I walk. Is the glare really needed though Yona?" he asked his eyes opening and looking to her with his soul filled eyes "Yes, me..." he finally stated as he had been addressed as 'you', it was true that he hadn't yet given her a name from which he could reference him by but then he was careful when he gave such information to anyone. What many failed to realise was that names had their own kind of power, especially within his race and more so his birth cast. He actually had three names and to him they were given on a need to know basis and ninety-nine point nine percent of the those in existence be it alive or otherwise didn't need to know.

    He looked at himself as she did wondering if he was dusty or had gotten dirty "Is something wrong?" he asked unsure on why she was looking at him oddly, it was then he remembered that she had never seen him like this. "Oh, my appearance?" he said eventually looking to her once more "Well this is what I actually look like... I don't want to really go into why I am shorter when I am..." he paused for a moment bobbing his head slightly from side to side as he was thinking of a way to put what he was wanting to say into words "Um.. Well... When I am what I am." to him there was no other way he really could put it other than to say 'When I am a Reaper' he really hated that word if he had to be honest with himself or any other. They didn't go and reap anything in his opinion unless they were talking about hate, blame and a massive headache, that was a gripe for the future and not now, it was just part of the job he hated.

    Oykai tilted his head when it came to the comment about how he preferred people to be punctual, that too was part of the job but he understood that people on occasion ran late so if she had been he would have just continued to wait for her. "I don't mind people being late if there is a decent enough reason for it Yona. Ruvel on the other hand... he is like a school teacher and can't stand tardiness, but, there are reasons for that and they are not mine to give so lets move on." he said showing he wouldn't answer questions on why his young blonde haired summoner was how he was with things. "I chose here because not many pass this way, that and the portals would take us to another world should we need additional privacy for our discussion." he said looking around them, the portals giving off pale glows from their almost mirror like surfaces, it made the place look like an almost romantic getaway for the pair given how late it was.

    When she commented on how tall he was, the blue haired male could only blink in confusion as he had been caught off guard by it "Was tall really the word you were looking for right now or was there something else you wanted to say but were to nervous to say?" he asked his voice showing he wasn't quite sure if the other was being serious at current or not, he really hoped that her first comment about how he really looked was about his height, as to him that would be more than a little awkward to say the least. When she motioned to his book he looked to it and shook his head "No, not long at all." he said knowing that was the truth "I have however been here all day, the book is due to research I am doing..." his hands clenched for a brief moment as he turned his head away it was clear he was angry or upset about something and the book had something to do with it. After releasing a sigh his hands relaxed, his head turning to look to her "My apologies Yona, I am a little burdened at the moment due to an event that took place recently." he informed her motioning towards a bench that they could sit down at before heading towards it himself and taking a seat the book following him and landing on his lap. He would wait for her to do as she needed before he would go any further as he didn't want to say anything if she didn't want to listen or if she was more interested in something else at current. It was true he might or might not be on a time crunch but still she had as much right to do her own thing as the next person.

    The woman with green hair observed carefully, listening to the reaper's words. The strangeness of the meeting and of his appearance called into question why they were meeting. Attentively, she nodded once when he said that he didn't want to explain why he was shorter when she had usually seen him. Yona considered it and his reaction made her wonder if he didn't actually like his job. It was something she hadn't considered before given his usual attitude towards her. The way he talked about Ruvel and his displeasure for tardiness made her chuckle to herself. So it wasn't the summon who would be so hard on her, it would have been Ruvel. The thought made her again turn serious, at least in her head, where she couldn't help but wonder again why they were meeting. They had never done so without Ruvel's presence. She was on guard, expecting something rude or mean to be said, but so far he had given no impression that he would do so. Yona tried to treat him as if she had just met him instead.

    Yona looked around when he did, examining the shining portals as he talked of the possibility of needing even further privacy. The plant mage tried not to let it show that she hoped it would not be required of her to go through one just for a conversation, and then back. A sparkle of light glinted off the gemstone on his attire and it caught her green eyed gaze. She watched him with curiosity: tall and well-dressed, with the tassels swaying on his clothing as he made gentle motions. The gemstone was the most curious given what she knew of him still supported her to believe that he didn't go for having extra things in his life. It had to have done something for him. A magical relic? A wishing stone? A curse stored away to protect Ruvel? "Maybe it contains his own soul? The screams of a dying man? The heart of a child..?" Ketsueki crooned, taking an interest as well. She shook her head slightly as she looked back from the portals, to his gemstone, to his eyes.

    It was poor timing to catch his eyes as he asked what she had meant to say. He had read her like a book, noting even the hesitation and nervousness as she called him 'tall'. What had she been supposed to say? For a petulant, brazen, annoying, frustrating, bully of a summon... he suddenly seemed both attractive and intelligent? Something about him was more... alive. He was more real, more tangible. There was a warmth to him that made her question her judgment of his words and actions as a reaper. She cleared her throat starting to lie, "Oh no, I meant tall. Well, no. I meant you're different.... from.." "Wow, that was real smooth. Good cover," The demon purred, amused. She huffed and waved a hand. "Your appearance and behavior is just a contrast to what I was expecting. Is it important to linger on that?" She turned away from him, trying to hide the tinge of embarrassed pink in her face.

    Thankfully, he said that he hadn't been waiting long. His mention of research had her turn back to him, her eyes on his book. It was his turn to look away, his hands clenched before sighing. Yona tried not to stare, finding his expression of anger and distress as further support to her thought that he was different here than when she had seen him as a reaper. It was taking some adjustment. The plant mage reached out a hand instinctively to place it on his arm when he said that he felt burdened. It was a natural human gesture, trying to give him comfort or support in the face of whatever his challenge was. Yona moved with him to the bench and removed her hand from him, sitting with her hands folded on her knees and her back straight. Her eyes flicked to the gem, her mind persistent in its interest in the uniqueness of the item. "If you would please go on, I am all ears," Yona kindly encouraged, tilting her chin up to look at him and away from the dangling gemstone, "Is this why we are meeting today? I have to say, the meeting in itself has me worried. I have never seen you without Ruvel before. And meeting in a place like this," She lifted her hands and looked around the portals, "It only further tells me how important this must be."

    Oykai's Request


    Oykai watched her quietly for a moment as she seemed to observe him, he was starting to wonder if he should allow his reaper side to take over since this form was distracting her. It would sort one problem as she would be use to the appearance but it also meant his personality would switch and he wouldn't be in the mood for talking, this was something that he could do without right now. He had the memories of what his other side was like and were he understood the reasons for it, he doubted she would without an explanation, an explanation he wasn't willing to give. To him it had nothing to do with her, it was something he had decided to do on his own even if he didn't understand why he had done it, and so he would live with the consequences of his defiance. For now however that needed to be pushed to the back of his mind, it wasn't the issue at hand nor was it an issue now as he had lived with this 'curse' for years. The personality change had happened for a different reason completely and still it was still something he really didn't want to get into; to do so would mean he would have to admit that side of himself and his sister to another and there was no way he was ready for that.

    He looked to her "I don't mind my job Yona, sometimes however it does frustrate me that we are made to be the bad guys." he admitted to the other knowing that his last answer likely had her wondering "Some people seem to forget that everything eventually dies, even I will in time." he said he seemed at peace with that fact, he remembered the request he had made of Johann and Mars not to long ago. That if he fell to the same madness as Cirven and his twin sister Demiari had, that he wanted to be taken out so he could be no threat to his young summoner. It seem that both the elder male and seal had agreed to his request which brought him some kind of peace at least, thing was he could already feel the malicious intent creeping in. He knew that if it fully took over then the insanity would quickly kick in and that was something he would never allow, he would fight to keep his contract for as long as possible. He just hoped that his twin would come back to her senses before it got to that point, that would only likely happen though if he could manage to separate her from Cirven and he already knew that wasn't about to happen any time soon.

    He closed his eyes for a moment "My kind reincarnate when we die, after we graduate we get our past lives memories, that being said we can be snuffed out of existence." he opened his eyes and looked to the sky "That happens and there is no coming back, we just cease to exist." again he seemed to be at peace with this as a gentle smile appeared on lips "Sorry, here's me side tracking once more. Not my intention." he said with a nervous chuckle, he looked at her eyes as she looked to the portals "They aren't dangerous, it is like walking through a doorway." he explained having used them in the past and even done several hundred years of study on them, he still had no idea who had made them, that was just one more mystery that he had to unravel in time he guessed. That didn't really bother him, it gave him something to study and research without enigmas like this he thought that his ever long life would have no meaning than to bare the brunt of the living as he took their loved ones and of the newly dead as he claimed them. It really was a sucky deal but it wasn't like he could argue with his path in life.

    He noted a few times that her eyes had looked him over and it puzzled him a bit "Do you find me attractive Yona?" he asked wondering if that was the livings way of doing things, it was a bit different where he called home but it was the only reason he could think a living person would look over another in such a way. He had also noticed her eyes lingered on the pale milky jade gem by his side, the claiming order for a persons soul, one he hadn't claimed the night he should have. The gem that should have now been carrying her soul but currently laid empty due to the fact he still refused to claim it. Why should he? It was no longer her time. Now that he thought about it he had interfered in her death by not claiming her, he could make her like him but now the questions were, would he really wish his existence onto another and even if he was would she accept it. Shaking his head a little he pushed such nonsensical thoughts out of the forefront of his mind, that was just stupidity rearing its head and he had no time for such things, not now of all times. "You don't have to worry about the gem, it is unimportant to you." he eventually said were it was true she had no reason to worry about it, she would eventually end up inside it one day but it wouldn't be for a long time so it really was unimportant for now.

    He blinked as she started to lie to him and sighed shaking his head "Yona, there is no need to lie to me, and yes I've lived all in all for over thirty thousand years so I know when someone is lying to me..." he then moved his head side to side a little "I also have to deal with liars when I hunt for wayward souls and the others of my cast who failed to get said soul to its judgement and final resting place." he explained showing he had more than enough experience to catch someone like her out in an untruth. "I believe in your kinds terminology you find me attractive but are to bashful to admit such a thing so are fumbling over your words and making untruths to try and cover it." he said his voice was warm as he spoke "My culture and race do things a little differently but that would be a conversation for another time if you wish to know." he explained showing he would help her understand the differences if he so wanted just not at this precise moment.

    As she had moved to touch him he instinctively took a pace back and brought up a hand palm flat and facing toward her "Please don't touch me." his eyes went to the ground for a moment, it wasn't that he minded it was just a really bad idea. "I don't mind touch, however, to touch someone like me is to invite death if they haven't adjusted for it to be allowed." he let her know with a handsome smile as he escorted her to the bench. He listened to her nodding to her words "Yes, it is because I only come to this plane generally when I am researching, hunting, reaping or am summoned by Ruvel." he started but when he got to Ruvel's name his voice trembled with pain "Yes, my summoner is the reason we are meeting and so far away from Tolgalen as I wouldn't want to damage the company or his reputation." he explained his soul filled blood ruby eyes looking to her own spring green ones. "Ruvel has been hurt... badly..." he let the plant mage know "To the point he had went catatonic for a while." he finished knowing she would likely have questions given what he had just told her.

    Oykai's Request Empty Re: Oykai's Request

    Post by Yona on 22nd May 2019, 7:05 am

    Yona crossed her arms, distancing herself from the male if only by a few inches. It was a symbol of a wall, a defense going up, and her arms came up as he broached the subject of what she thought of his appearance. Yona's posture was relaxed, but her crossed arms put tension in her shoulders. It was only one simple question so she lowered her shoulders and answered, "I might." She closed her eyes and smiled to herself. "I doubt he's letting it go that easy," Ketsueki murmured within. When he addressed they way he caught her looking at the gem, she only felt more curious. "I was just curious. You're not the jewelry type and I know you're intelligent enough to not where an amulet around your waist. It looks like some sort of magic to me." She murmured the last part, acknowledging that it wasn't her business a little too late.

    As Oykai went on about lying and liars and how good he was at knowing that she was hiding something from him, Yona wondered why it was so important. Why couldn't he just let it go? The demon rapped a claw against his head thoughtfully and smirked, "I called that. Go ahead, tell him what your first thought was..." Yona wet her lips, her face flushing as she took a deep inhale. Oykai continued on, pointing out obvious facts that made her color darken further. "A-all right!" Yona said, laughing nervously. At least nobody was here to see her. "You're attractive. Very. But we haven't had the most uh.. harmonious relationship. I guess you'll have to tell me later what your kind does. You're not very shy are you?" She ran a hand through her hair.

    As she sat down beside him on the bench, her mind was full. Between the exquisite and mysterious gem at his waist, to his direct approach to her lies, and then to the idea that just touching him could kill her, her mind had a lot to process and work through. What could it all mean? Who was he really? She gave him a curious look, almost daring enough to ask his name again. Did he remember their arguments, their snap judgements and remarks? Did he keep all his memories, or just some of them? Was that a dumb thing to wonder about? She hadn't really thought about his culture or race, or if it was different from her's. He was always just... Ruvel's summon, his guardian and spokesperson. Now that she was seeming him differently, Yona had to consider his remark about race and culture. How was he raised? Did he have a family? If his touch could kill, had he hurt someone he didn't mean to before? Yona's green eyes took in his soulful red ones and his smile made her smile back. Yona felt a bit of regret that she had never stopped to ask him anything about himself.

    Yona wanted to ask him now, but it seemed like poor timing. She looked over at him as he explained what happened that brought him to request to meet her. The wavering in his voice slowed her heart as she realized that this was the tone people took when they were about to share bad news. And not just bad, but dire news: Yona could see it in his eyes. And the only thing he would come to her for, the only thing she supposed that they had in common, was Ruvel. Her eyes widened before he even got the words out. Yona reached to touch him but stopped her hand in mid air between them, hovering like a question between their bodies. "Ruvel.... Hurt? ..... How!?"

    Ruvel was powerful to say the least. She recalled her exam with him and how he barely moved the entire time. Yona remembered that it hadn't mattered what she threw his way; what normally killed monsters in the field and on jobs hadn't touched him at all. All the memories she had of Ruvel flashed through her mind as she thought of how Sato was returned to her, of how he was one of the ones there when she first came to the guild, and of the many interactions they had had at the guild. She smiled as her eyes glistened, thinking simultaneously of the time Ruvel had yelled at her for almost throwing a tea cup while warning the new male mage to watch his mouth when talking to Yona. Ruvel even said she would let her hit him. That was the thing with Ruvel. He always seemed fairly just. With him catatonic and injured, Yona had to swallow hard. She understood the emotion in Oykai's voice. "Seems like he's still alive though. Pity," Ketsueki started to speak but stopped when Yona blocked him out from her thoughts as well as the conversation again. She didn't trust him.

    Still her hand hovered in the air, surprise and her thoughts making her forget to lower it. "How can I help?" Yona said with a seriousness in her voice. Whoever responsible was going to regret it, but she was willing to do whatever it took. Revenge came easily and naturally to Yona, given her history, but the plant mage had also grown enough to see the importance of acting for the good of those in her guild family before relying on her own emotions first. Ruvel had helped teach her that. "Anything you need. I am so sorry, this must be even harder on you."

    Oykai's Request


    Oykai watched the other as she made some distance between them, her arms crossing he understood what this meant but had no real understanding why she wanted the distance between them. He stood there blinking for a moment unable to really say anything, he was currently wondering if he had offended her "I'm sorry if I gave you discomfort or offended you Yona, it wasn't my intention. I assure you." he said his tone showing he really had no idea why she had taken such a stance, this was the reason he disliked the living, they were complicated but in this form he could push such annoyances to the side so he wasn't concentrating on them as much as when his emotions weren't fully there. He could only double blink as she mentioned that she may find him attractive, he looked over himself once more not fully understanding why he would find his current form attractive; it wasn't anything special in his opinion. 'The living really are strange beings.' he thought to himself wondering how his twin had managed it all this time, then again she had been raised amongst them and far differently than one of their kind normally would, even for their cast she was more than a little strange because she had been raised in the way she had. He had to wonder if that is why her mental fortitude wasn't as strong as should be and how his now brother in law broke her.

    He nodded to her words "You are correct, I'm not into trinkets." he confirmed her suspicion taking the gem into his hand looking it for a moment "This is not jewellery, nor is it an amulet or magical in any sense of the term." he explained to her before bringing his eyes up to look at her once more his free hand pushing up his glasses "My twin gets her orders via scrolls, I get mine through these." he let the green haired mage know but now he knew that would likely move on to another set of questions "This is one I haven't completed, nor do I intend to anytime soon." he brought it up to look into it, it was still flawless and held the order within it but no soul like it should have already. "It was the first time i disobeyed the orders of my station, to this day I still don't understand why I done what I did..." he said thoughtfully placing it gently back where it had been as he looked to the star filled sky "I carry it with me as a reminder of that act of disobedience." he continued his voice gentle as he thoughtfully gazed to heavens so to speak "I often wonder if the person knew that they should have died but didn't if they would be thankful or hate me for doing it." he said bringing his head down once more so their eyes met.

    He smiled his eyes closing as he did so "It's of little relevance now I guess, though, it also means because their death had been interfered with they could become one like me." he said calmly his eyes opening, they held a sadness within them. Sure he could make her like him if he so desired but would that be something that she'd actually wish for? More than that would he wish his existence on another being? Not really, but, if he ever decided to tell her it would be her decision now wouldn't it, not his. That was tomorrow's problem for now he had no intention to tell her that he should have claimed her on the night that her father and brother passed only to spare her. He would take her hate if it came to that, he was use to it after all, it came with the territory of what his main cast was. He wasn't lying however when he said he had no idea why he didn't follow the order, he truly had no idea why he didn't take her final breath as he had done to so many before her. What was so special about her he wondered, this was something that he would have to discover so he could prevent it in the future but again that was a problem for another day.

    He blinked seeing the flushing of her cheeks and now wondered if there was something wrong with the green haired woman. "Are you alright Yona? You've went a strange shade of red." he asked concern heard in his voice when talking about her health. It hadn't even occurred to him that she was blushing, sure he had lived a long time and had observed the behaviours of the living but being he was neither experienced such things nor had he ever been alive in the sense she was, there was no real way he could understand what she could be feeling as much as he may desire it. "It's true our meetings have never been quite as many have been but then you have dealt with the other side of me. Yes, there is clearly a difference and no, I don't want to go into why that is a thing." he said giving her a little insight while answering a question he could just see coming. He really didn't want to go into the whole thing with his sister or that she should be dead but he refused to do it, the blue haired male knew he was less than a kind person, but still he had acted against what he believed better judgement and showed what many would deem as a sick kind of kindness without knowing why he had done it. "Shy? There's nothing to be shy about so why would I be?" it was clear that emotions were seen and responded to differently in his race, that shy wasn't exactly a word used often when it came to speaking about how one person felt about another.

    He moved his hand and took her smaller, gentler ones within it a gentle smile on his face "This is what a reapers touch feels like when we are fine with being touched." he said his hand would be warm, holding a strength to it of a protector and guardian but in no way was it malicious, it was what it had to be to do what was needed. "I believe that how people hold another's hand can tell a lot about the person." he said to her with a quiet voice, his eyes closing as he thought on something for a moment. "I remember everything Yona, I am a single person after all." he said with a small smile "And Yona... my name is Oykai." his eyes opening once more looking to her, it wasn't his true name but it was the common one that he was called by others. "I was the one whom claimed your family, all of the three of them" he said looking to the stars above them "Like I said part of my job is watching the final moments of a persons life, your mother's was easy she passed in her sleep. Your father and brother on the other had, I have to admit... it wasn't easy but I stood and watched." his voice was saddened as he spoke "Children are always hard when they die in such a way, but it was something that had to be done." he knew this is true as everything died in time and nothing could change that.

    "The one I have contract with, my summoner... well he is different from most." he explained his voice gentle as again his eyes closed "Well he is different for many reasons, many of these I can't get into because of my contract with him. The one thing I can say is because of one of these reasons he can not make contracts with the dead, we are all alive in some aspect and even if Sato broke his contract with him he would remain alive." he let her to know, he knew how it had happened but he couldn't and wouldn't explain it to her, it would break his own contract with Ruvel and right now it was the only thing between him and losing his own sanity like his twin had. "It isn't any wonder why you wouldn't have thought me as anything other than a spirit. I will answer any questions you might have if I can answer them, some things are private due to what I am as you can understand. Questions about Ruvel are also off the table, if you want that information you have ask the source." he said his eyes looking to the book he had been reading while he had been waiting as she asked her question "My twin attacked him, I've laid claim to his last breath so only I have the right to reap him." he said his voice but a whisper "I am unable to claim him due to our contract however, but, even if I could I wouldn't for my own selfish reasons. He almost lost his left arm and is blind, my twin's reaper weapon slashed across his eyes when my cousin miscalculated his counter at the moment I am researching to see if there is any way to bring his eyesight back but so far I have found no way." his voice was still quiet as he spoke, right now he was finding it hard to keep his tone stable, then again he was finding it hard to fight back his tears and bite back the pain. He knew just how much the youth had went through in his life and it didn't seem like it was coming to an end any time soon.

    He had picked up the inner demon that lingered within the green haired mage but his eyes flashed with anger as he forgot his sadness and worry and the eyes of his 'normal' self seemed to take their place 'Listen here little leech, say such a thing again about my summoner and I will not only separate you from your host but will beat you to the point you will wish to die... I will then deny your wish allowing you to heal just to go through the hell again before and each time I make you go through this cycle I will start unravelling your existence and will take pleasure in your every agonising scream as I do it. So I suggest you remain quiet in my presence, do I make myself clear?!' he sent into Yona's mind he knew that she would be able to hear him and at current he didn't care, he was angry more to the fact the demon would hear him and know by his tone this was no idle threat, he would follow it through, he had the power to. He heard her question his eyes became gentle once more "my apologies, I entered your mind but I will not have such horrible things said about him and I meant my every word if he does it again." his voice showed true regret to his actions and the threat he gave but it was something he believed he needed to do regardless. "As for your question, at current I can not do reaper tasks.." he turned his head almost ashamed at the fact "I am troubled and so my soul is heavy with burden, while it is like that I can not pick up the physical manifestation of my soul..." he informed her "So I am useless in my other tasks." he finished letting her know, he remained quiet on how hard it was for him and the others, that was of little consequence now.

    Oykai's Request Empty Re: Oykai's Request

    Post by Yona on 25th May 2019, 10:08 am

    The young woman absorbed the information like a sponge. There were so many questions, his answers only leading to more things she became curious about. For example, his twin whom she had never met, the gem which declared that someone alive should have been dead, and of the sadness within those red eyes of his. Yona couldn't imagine why someone alive would hate him for not reaping them, for giving them a second chance at life. "I am sure whoever it is would be grateful to you. It's not every day a person gets a second chance at life." Yona met his eyes as he spoke mentioning that the person could become like him. The plant mage assumed that meant becoming a reaper, someone destined to live the way Oykai did, watching the deaths of the living and bringing their souls out of the material world. Yona considered what that life would be like, but by spending time with the summon, she didn't feel much envy for him or his professional duties.

    When Oykai mentioned her blush, she couldn't tell if he was seriously asking for her health or teasing her. Giving him the benefit of the doubt, Yona replied in a half-mumble, "People turn red when they are embarrassed." Indeed, the way he handled her rhetorical question about shyness informed the plant mage that it was a notable quality for him, or maybe his entire race, that feeling embarrassed was not ordinary or as commonplace as it was here in her world. There was a hearty amount of things she didn't understand and wanted to when it came to the summon. Her busy curious head thrived on being inquisitive and she didn't do a good job of hiding that aspect of her personality. His hands took her's and she flushed again as her heart picked up its beat. What came next was a world-shattering comment, one that Yona had not expected and one that she could not respond to easily.

    He gave her his name: Oykai. That meant he believed her to finally be worthy, giving it to her the same way she had given Chef Benvolio a package of highly variable seeds. It was an olive branch, an act of forgiveness, of peace, or of friendship. Yona didn't take the act of learning his name lightly. His voice was sad and he looked away, above their heads, and then closed his eyes as he recounted the deaths of her family. The plant mage stiffened in his grasp, tension filling her arms and hands. Yona tried not to think about her mother who died so long ago or her father who had died in the fire. The burn scars on her legs still raised up in evidence of her own survival while the cries of her brother were scorched into her mind. Yona had to let the past go to take care of Sato. Every time she looked at the little boy, she could recall the night that her home, her father, and he himself burned to death. She could recall the dark figure in the night, illuminated by flames, and she could recall the way the figure had left her there, trapped under the burning wood. Her legs tingled and itched at the memory and her mouth went momentarily dry. Why tell her all of this? Why tell her now?

    The tone he took was sad and concerned as he changed the subject to Ruvel and his injuries. His own twin attacked Ruvel and the boy lost his eyesight and almost his arm. In Yona's own emotional state, her mental guard was weakened. While she grappled with the feelings of her own past, Oykai's involvement in them and Ruvel's injuries, the green haired woman came to a sudden realization. Oykai had faced betrayal, and now Oykai was in line to do the impossible. Yona thought of Sato and what she might feel if forced to kill him, or if forced to reap his soul. She thought of the pain Oykai was burdened with as he went through his job and of the precarious situation he found himself. It was unspoken, but she imagined that she heard him loud and clear: this time Ruvel's eyes, next time his...? He had told her about her family perhaps because he trusted her now, with the facts and with his name. Was she now deemed worthy to the summon? It hadn't quite occurred to her that she was the one who Oykai had let live. She gingerly squeezed Oykai's hands, finally speaking to him.

    "Oykai.." She exhaled as her glassy eyes released a single tear. Normally, she would lash out. She would start a fight with him. She would beat him until he told her a happy lie that she could accept as preferable to the truth. She would do so recklessly, risking her own life because she had no care to survive without Sato. Turned out that because of Johann, Ruvel, and Oykai, Yona had become stronger than what she was before. Disrupting her mental process of these emotions, her mind was filled with a dark and frightening voice: Oykai's. The threat echoed in the walls of her mental castle, shaking them and the demon within. Her hands tightened their grip on Oykai's, scared suddenly of what was going on. Would Oykai really remove the demon? Could he do so without harming her? What would the demon do to her if he tried? Oykai apologized after and Yona was quick to nod and forgive him, "I understand. I'm sorry, I don't always have the best control over him. I'll do better. So... you need my help with-"

    Ketsueki stirred inside, stretching out his claws and grinning, sensing the threat as a challenge. He took a grip on Yona's heart, squeezing it until Yona gasped, interrupting her in the middle of her sentence. Yona's usual guards and defenses were lowered with Oykai and the news she just received, weakened enough for Ketsueki to take control.

    Her eyes flashed blue, showcasing demonic flame, and the color of her skin started to darken from her typical fairness to the shade of dark deep wood. Her skin began to smoke, the pores releasing a black and gray fog from within as Ketsueki took control. Enormous protrusions like thick thorny branches burst from her collarbone and fangs lengthened from between her lips. Still, Yona gripped Oykai's hands tightly, fighting to take back the control from the demon. "You dare to threaten me? This body is merely a host. I can kill it and find another. I can tell you have great power but none may order me but my masters. And you don't look like a demon lord, pawn of death." There was a pause as the words left Yona's mouth, her darkening skin appearing almost diseased. "That's enough." Yona pushed back hard enough to reclaim parts of her body again, the fangs vanishing as soon as they had arrived. Ketsueki wasn't done yet it seemed and he used Yona's own blood to simultaneously weaken her and strengthen himself.

    "You have no power over me, Oykai," the demon proclaimed as the fangs returned. A clawed hand, Yona's, released the summon's fingers and lunged forth to grasp the taller male's neck. If successful, the demon in Yona would grab his throat and squeeze, threatening him with ease, "Now say it, before I tear out those juicy veins inside of you. You have no power over me. And I will let you live. And more importantly, I will let her live." From inside her own body, Yona choked on the demonic smoke. Johann had taught her to work with the demon, to bargain, to fight him, to do whatever it took to maintain control. It seemed that the demon had been hiding his real strength all along because right now she felt like she was in a cage and Ketsueki was the one with a key. Just as frightening was the idea of what Oykai could do, what he would do. Yona didn't want to do anything risky right now but she had not seen Oykai to ever lie about what he was capable of.

    Oykai's Request


    Oykai shook his head to her words, he knew it would likely be so much differently. She had lived in pain for so many years, both mentally and physically. She had been the only one of her family to survive and lived with the survivors guilt on top, this wasn't something that she didn't want to do her but her demise was his to give and he hadn't given it. He had brought out his lantern to guide her as he had within her family but when he brought it close to her he had moved her hair to behind her chest. He had even gone so far to have told her, it wasn't time for her to make such a journey but he put it down the fact he knew that justice wouldn't be given had she passed. Now he wasn't so sure but he still couldn't give another reason to it as much as he may have tried to make sense of it. "I wonder Yona, would you be saying the same thing if that person was you." he said trying to gauge her response to this 'hypothetical' situation, in all honesty there should have been no way that she should have survived but she had and it was due to the lack of his wish to claim her.

    He smiled weakly before his eyes closed "My race have a low reproduction rate, so pure born Deathless are classed as miracles. Those who manage such a feat move up in cast actually." he said in a thought filled tone "Those who are born in the manner I can do, such as Sol had been don't always gain the cast I have, less than point two percent of Deathless are that cast" he wanted to avoid saying the word 'Reaper' he truly hated it with a passion. The cast translated to 'Spiritual Calling' from his own language into common, those who were marked could become spirit gods better known as death gods to those who passed more frequently than they themselves did. It was true it was unfavourable to hold such a cast but someone had to do it, being one of the two children of primordial Death it wasn't exactly like he had any say of not being part of the cast he was. It was etched into his and his twin's spirit. No matter how times they were reborn they always had the markings showing them as one of the spiritual calling, taken from whatever life they had at the age of five to start their training. He just wished it could end but they couldn't end their own lives or the others, they had tried. It seemed like it was a stipulation of their parent.

    He looked to her with a smile "One of three names I hold, but, it is the only one I am comfortable to let a mortal know." he said warmly "Please do not think badly of me on this, a name has a lot of power for those within my main cast. It is the reason I am very careful when I give any name at all." he explained to her so she finally knew why he didn't give it on their first meeting, though he realised he had been a bit of an ass about it, it wasn't as if he could avoid it given why it was happening but it was something he bore one way or another. He knew what was on the other side of the doors he and his sister had thanks to her conditioning, she had bore so much so he really felt wrong in asking her to sacrifice anything more so gave up his compassion as a reaper. Many would have seen this as a blessing but in truth it wasn't he could watch the most heinous of deaths and not give a damn about it, in fact if there was a fire involved he would have likely had brought marshmallows to toast. He wanted his compassion but he feared that side he kept locked away within the darkness of his soul behind a reinforced door covered in all sorts of protections.

    Oykai had been perfectly serious when he mentioned her blush previously, as he himself had never been mortal nor raised around or by mortals he didn't really understand any emotion they had except fear due to how quite a lot of them passed. "Oh, I see. That is quite interesting, I'll have to make a note." he said his smile never moving from his lips, his tone genuine as he took a mental note for later "I don't fully understand why saying such things could make someone embarrassed in all honesty." he rubbed under his chin as he contemplated the meaning of such a thing, it wasn't like his own race were their wasn't such embarrassments so he wanted to know a bit more but that was something that would have to wait, at least for the moment. "If you are wanting to learn about my race and culture I could teach you, of course there are things that I won't be allowed to due to how things are set up. We are a very... isolated race." he informed her, the way they looked helped with that but it was more than that, they enjoyed their privacy and so only reapers ever seemed to leave the realm for any amount of time, as for outsiders? Well outsiders weren't a thing, they normally were killed on sight if they didn't leave after the first request.

    He didn't have to be a telepathic to see that the green haired mage was curious about him, his race and culture it was pretty much written all over her face and eyes. Curiosity wasn't a bad thing, he was a researcher after all, that being said being overly curious could take you down paths you might wish you never walked down, certain truths could come to light that you didn't want to and would never be able to forget. He wished he could temper that curiosity but knew if he attempted it would just make her that much more curious, it would make her more determined to find out things. It was mortal nature from what he had seen, he had even claimed quite a few people who went looking for things they shouldn't have. He just didn't want the same fate for her, he believed that if he was at least giving her the information it would keep her out of danger as much as possible. Still there was things that he couldn't give as much as she might wish it. He could feel the tension in her hands and arms as he spoke of the night she lost everything, he done this for two reasons. The first so she knew he had to witness it so she hadn't been alone but the second was he wanted to tell her that he was the one who hadn't claimed her, that she shouldn't feel the guilt that she had all these years. Something inside him told him not to say anything, he had to wonder was he afraid that she would hate him for what he had decided to do that night?

    He closed his eyes for the longest moment "My twin didn't betray me, she betrayed the one she had spent years with in less than desirable conditions. She should have killed him but for the second time in my life I refused to claim someone, not because I had any qualms about doing it but because I can't due to my contract with him." he explained quietly his tone not changing in any way "A stipulation she placed in the contract and I had accepted, now I wonder if it is because she wanted to be cruel to him and I." he finished his eyes now opening looking to her once more "Where she didn't betray me, I have betrayed her. I informed Johann where her and I weaknesses are, I even pleaded with him to give us new life or end our very existence if I lose myself to the same insanity my sister has." he let the green haired plant mage know "I will attack her if I come across her but her pain is my pain and vice versa, it is why twins are killed within my race at birth. They are dangerous." they shared all pain, knowledge, happiness, strengths, weaknesses for example "We can't end each others lives however because our cast can't claim our own lives, twins are one person in two bodies so she can not claim me and I can not claim her because it is classed as claiming ourselves." he let her know, it was clear this weighed heavily on him.

    This side of himself did indeed trust her, he believed that even his bratty side did too but enjoyed teasing her beyond belief. When she squeezed his hands he blinked in surprise, he wasn't against feeling her touch, it was soft, warm, caring. It was everything he didn't get to feel normally, it was a nice change of pace. He went to open his mouth to say something but was beaten to the punch when she uttered his name making him close his mouth and listen to her quietly. He seen the glassy tear and raised his hand to wipe it away "Please Yona, there is no need for tears..." he began his stomach knotted seeing her upset like this, he was having to wonder what the hell was going on with him but that was something he just couldn't answer right then as much as he wanted to. He held her trembling hands in his own trying to reassure her on the goings on. "I deal with souls so yes, I can remove them without harming the vassal they are within, without the vassal feeling any discomfort or pain." he said his tone warm as he spoke these words knowing that she likely needed to hear them. "You are still young and he needs to learn that you are the host and you are the one with the power within that form. You must not barter with him, it takes the power from you and gives it to him." he explained knowing how this kind of thing worked, with a bit of training he believed she could hold the power and he would be forced to obey her will. "It is fine, but, you need to stop feeding him or he will consume you and that is something I doubt either of us wish to see." he said to her knowing this should lift her spirits a little.

    He was about to say something when he noticed a change happening in the green haired mage, her fingers turning more into claws, he sat there calmly allowing what was going to happen, to happen. It would do no good to play his hand to early, he was in no danger but the green haired mage or at least that is what the demon would believe. Oykai knew differently but still the longer the demon was in control, the more damage and pain he could do to Yona and this was just something he couldn't permit. He watched the skin darken, the protrusions happen, fangs erupt but he remained unmoving in any way. Hearing his question the blue haired reaper shook his head "No, I did not threaten you. I'm sorry you read it in such a manner, I was telling you what exactly would happen if you did not behave yourself little leech." his voice calm but held a cold undertone to it, he smirked hearing the insult the other had tried to use with him "Oh you have the wrong person if you believe I am a pawn of anyone, more so my parents." he said calmly revealing that he wasn't like others of his race, that he was the son of primordial death. "And two things little leech..." he said his eyes starting to glow as the whites of his eyes turned black "One, you don't have the power to end her and two don't judge a book by it's cover..." he said his voice turning darker "You are right I am no demon lord, I am a devil at least in part so I suggest you behave before I truly get angry because you will regret it." he said the other wouldn't be able to know if he was bluffing or not.

    Oykai couldn't help but chuckle at the proclamation of the other and how he had no power over him, if only he knew. He allowed the other to grip his throat and even squeeze it if he so desired "I don't breath you fool, one of the benefits of my race." he said his hand coming up quickly bypassing Yona's arm and hitting his spiritual on with enough strength to break it. He knew Yona wouldn't feel any of the pain from what he just done to the demon. "I have a lot of power over you, allow me to demonstrate." he said bringing his hand forward quickly through Yona's body missing her spiritual heart and gripping the demons squeezing it with enough strength to cause pain and immobilisation if he managed it. "You have no power over her, you never have and never will..." his free hand going to the gem that dangled by his waist "This is the order to take her last breath, it was issued the day of the fire... I claimed her father... I claimed her little brother... I refused to claim her...." he said before leaning into his ear "Due to this I am the only one who can end her, you have no claim to end her existence, only I have that right and right now I have no wish to claim her. Now go back inside and let her out before I make you sorry little leech." his voice filled with deadly venom, he had made sure that Yona had heard the truth, she should have died that night along side her family but he himself had interfered with it by not doing so, something that was beyond rare for reapers to do in the first place but even rarer for someone like him who done everything by the book.

    Oykai's Request Empty Re: Oykai's Request

    Post by Yona on 15th June 2019, 9:40 am

    Yona steadied her breath as Oykai said to her, I wonder Yona, would you be saying the same thing if that person was you. The words replayed in her head a few times as she let it soak in. It was both harmless, meaningless, as of course, it was possibly false, and painfully sensitive. She felt the words layer into her, her body becoming more aware as she thought of that night from so long ago. It was an easy memory to recall. Like sandpaper sliding over her skin, she felt the burn and the tingling in the scars on her legs. The smell of burning wood and burning flesh. She almost sank too far, hearing Sato's voice and her father's pounding on her door, eventually slowing and coming to a complete stop. For so many years, the plant mage had desired death. Without her family and with all the pain in her healing body, Yona hadn't imagined a life worth living. She had pulled herself out of her own stupor back then, using the memory of the tall dark man as fuel for her revenge. She had secretly promised herself that she would destroy him. And when she did, and only then, would she allow herself the security and solace of death. She glanced at Oykai, her painful history flashing over her eyes, something he would surely see and recognize given his experience.

    Would she forgive him if he had not taken her back then? Would she be grateful to him for being alive now? It was a complicated knot of a feeling. Every thought and emotion so deeply entangled with the agony of recollection and the certain steady hand of logic that each time she thought she could give an answer, it fell away on her lips. Yona supposed after long trying that despite the emotional screaming in her soul at the thought of that first year she had spent in bed, her burned legs slowly healing and her tortured mind revisiting the good and bad memories of her family home, that those long weeks and months of horror had left her unable to answer without at least considering her own mortality. She had wanted to die. She had wanted to eradicate Fiore of the man who committed the crime. The desire for revenge was there, as was the memory of wanting to die, but today she had no suicidal tendencies.

    She had a new family and she had Sato. She had grown as a powerful mage and protected and saved plenty of lives. If she had died back then, when that was all her heart had longed to do, then none of what she had accomplished would have happened. There would be no Onyx Moon, no Sato, no Johann, no anything after that. She thought of Ruvel and gritted her teeth, feeling a click of bone tensing too forcefully in her jaw. Yona would say the same, she decided. She would be grateful to Oykai. It would not be without some talented untangling of that knot inside of her, but at the end of the day, everything she had was because of him if he had been the reason that she lived. And if that was true, and she was able to now help Ruvel because of it, then it was absolutely worth it. Her expression, as easy to read as a child's book, would show that she had settled on an answer, and her clouded pained eyes would have moved into a look of solidarity and resolve.

    The green haired woman recognized that he was content to discuss with her the mysteries of his race. It suited her well, she discovered, considering how closed off Oykai had always seemed to her and how shallow he had always acted. She learned Sol had become a reaper, and then she noted that Oykai himself avoided using the term. She made a note to use the word less herself if it came up. As he explained about how Deathless were born or created, how the power of names was established, it occurred to her just how much he was trying to trust in her. Oykai hadn't been obligated to answer her investigative inquiries and his openness further opened a vulnerability within her. "I would be happy to learn more, and share anything with you in return." She felt their bond growing now, the same way she felt when watching a seedling first crack through the soil with a sliver of a green stem. As isolated as he claimed his race to be, she found she could speak with him easily and all the snide remarks and facades of walls that Oykai had made to keep her a distance away or rather, to keep himself a distance away, were fading. He was getting closer to her humanity the longer he spoke with her.

    When the conversation turned to his twin once more, she was surprised that Oykai had told Johann about the weaknesses of a Deathless. For someone who had been so reluctant to share his name, he really put himself on a limb there. Yona felt herself somewhat jealous knowing that he had gone to Johann first, though Johann would certainly be her own first choice in this situation. It was as if Oykai had a spotlight on her, focused on her, listening to her, respecting her, and with every word he said, it only brought the plant mage more warmth and gratitude. How strange it was that mentioning Johann had made her feel like he had pulled that spotlight away, leaving her in a colder, lonelier, and overall less special place. "If someone ends your twin sister, will you die too, Oykai?" Yona queried plainly and directly. As calm and focused as the question seemed, her face easily expressed the hope that he would say that was not the case. She wanted to be sensitive to how hard this was to the reaper, but Yona was only human. There was no way she could not feel or let her feelings be known, and such a fact was one she had grappled with for a long time. Now she could allow it to fuel her strengths instead of making her an inept reckless girl. She thought of how he called her 'little Yona girl' with irritation and acceptance. She had been akin to a girl when they had first met, hadn't she?

    Oykai's next words strengthened her intensely. You must not barter with him. She would need to train, get stronger, practice using an inner force on the demon. She supposed the bargaining had been an easy short term fix, but the Deathless was right. It gave her confidence how he spoke to her, not as if she was incapable of controlling the demon, but as if she was capable. He wanted to see her use her power to do so instead of allowing Ketsueki occasional free reign.

    Ketsueki took over her body before she had a moment's chance to try out Oykai's suggestion. When Oykai addressed the demon, Yona found herself still inside her own mind. It was as if heavy shackles restrained her entire body. It was as if trying to break them was so impossible that the feeling in itself, the thought of doing so, drained her. She felt the power of the demon and it was like drowning in molasses, her movements slow and inadequate. She squinted and gasped through the thickness of the demonic power holding her down, watching as her own clawed hand reached up for Oykai's throat. She let out an internal scream of refusal but her arm stayed in place. Oykai's eyes turned black and she felt the shackles upon her growing colder and colder. They lightened, becoming almost brittle. "A devil? You're a devil in part? That's so cute, you telling me to behave when I have your throat in my--" Ketsueki's voice choked off then. He used his claws to grip tighter, finding the way he squeezed on Oykai's throat a relief despite the words of the black-eyed male.

    The demon let out a cry of pain, almost embarrassed by it, feeling his body breaking without any visible physical effects to his host's body. "I.. I am Ketsueki of the vampire tree, I am.." he cried out again as Oykai demonstrated his power by squeezing on the demon's ethereal heart. He wailed a third time, his eyes looking almost panicked in the face of Oykai's power. He struggled to be released, to squeeze on Oykai's neck, to scramble back inside of Yona and recuperate. Ketsueki was not given his freedom from Oykai's grip or his words. He choked out, "Stop, it hurts.." "You have no power over her, you never have and never will... This is the order to take her last breath...I refused to claim her...." Oykai's words wrenched Yona's own heart. The day of the fire, that sparkling gem in his hand, so it was him. It was Oykai that had prevented her death. It was him who... ignored the given order for her death and allowed her life. The demon's eyes faded from view and the fangs vanished, Yona's green eyes wide with surprise looking into Oykai's tight concentrating face. "Due to this I am the only one who can end her, you have no claim to end her existence, only I have that right and right now I have no wish to claim her. Now go back inside and let her out before I make you sorry little leech." The moment Oykai let the demon's heart go, giving him the freedom of movement again, Ketsueki slithered somewhere deep inside of Yona's physical body to lick his wounds. Yona's claws vanished and her body returned to normal. She stared at Oykai.

    It was one thing to imagine him letting her live. It was another thing for that fact to be real. She encountered that knot inside of her again, a roiling ball of snakes, and no way of knowing where one fanged viper's head started and where his tail ended. She shook her head, her mouth going dry. The plant mage knew what she wanted to say. She knew what she had already decided. Her green eyes fell to the gem in Oykai's hand and it felt to her as if her heart was paralyzed. Yona forced herself to take a deep breath. Oddly enough, she rebounded fairly quickly, unable to stop staring at the gem though. "Like I said. The person should be grateful to you for their life." She knew Oykai expected more, perhaps needed to hear more. Her eyes just stared at the gem, examining it. It would be so easy then, her whole existence would be gone.

    Somehow there was a difference for Yona. When going into battle, facing extreme dangers, and putting her life at risk. She was not afraid to die. Yet, at this moment an unmistakable and familiar feeling of fear crept up in her. Oykai had said that he had no wish to claim her, that he was the only one who could and that he had plans to do so anytime soon. Still, the fact remained the fact that prevented her from tearing her eyes away. "There would be no fighting. There would be no resistance. Death is ultimately written for me and here... it is."

    Her words were a tentative whisper. Being faced with your own inevitable mortality could have brought one to their knees. For Yona, she wanted to thank him. She wanted to thank him for every part of her life that she loved, every second chance, every moment she was able to do something worth doing. For every moment when she had done things that weren't worth anything either. He had given her an incredible gift by refusing to take her that night. "Thank you," She said, though her tongue felt thick and heavy. Thank you didn't even begin to cover it. Even with her words, her posture relaxing, her eyes were rigid on the gem. It was her death. It was her end. He could claim her whenever he liked, even if he did not want to right now, he still had that power. There was fear, respect, and more fear. Through living, like most other mortal people, Yona had convinced herself that in the end, her life and death were in her own hands. She controlled them. It was her actions and decisions and if she survived another battle and another job to fight another day, then it was her own self she had to thank. Yona had plenty of ways to grow, and plenty of power that came with the growth she already had. But for Yona, Oykai was her own personal god. She finally swallowed, unsure of how to explain that feeling to Oykai.
