Oykai could only internally sigh as he heard the younger reaper apologise for the action that he just took 'Words mean very little in our race, it all comes down to actions. Save your apologies and prove through improving yourself.'
he sent to the other somewhat sternly, he didn't know what his sister seen in this welp but he had to put up with him given he dealt with Ruvel more often than not due to them being in the same guild, he had wished that she took him with her so he wouldn't be dealing with the headache he was currently getting due to him. 'I am not one to forgive slights, you want that go find a priest.'
he sent to the other sighing more audibly this time resisting the urge to rub his temples. When he heard the request for Sol to tag along with him like a lost puppy that lost his owner he was going to tell him to go find his sister if he wanted to be around someone but before he could say anything it turned out that the taller black haired man had caught up with him and started following him none the less. 'I should have decided to go elsewhere for trying to find the present. I can't be dealing with a twice beaten lapdog.'
he thought to himself making sure to guard his thoughts from outside forces, he could do without that added headache.
It was when Sol spoke to Yona and Gangting he quirked an eyebrow "You've been around Ruvel way to much, you've started picking up his mannerisms."
he said shaking his head a little "And I don't think you put Mister before a king's given name."
he said with a small shrug, he could wrong as he never dealt with mortal royalty unless he was claiming them but he knew in their race and culture they didn't do such things, then again they tended to use titles over given names regardless in most things. He soon went quiet as some strange guy seemed to approach and asked if anyone wanted to try the eating contest, it really wasn't his cup of tea as food from this realm tasted like ash doused in gasoline and that was the high end stuff, the lower end stuff he could only shudder at what that likely tasted like to him "I think I'll pass."
he said but watched as Sol seemed to jump right on the offer of seemingly free food. 'And she wants him to be our sibling? What is she thinking?'
he thought to himself as he watched as Sol moved over to take part and started stuffing bowl after bowl of food into his mouth only making the smallest of the group wrinkle his nose in distaste.
Oykai picked up the demons thoughts and glanced over to Yona a smile on his lips 'Parasite be silent in my presence, when we last met I was calmer and wouldn't have ended you unless required. I am not as restrained in my current form.'
he warned the lurking demon 'Also you make any trouble for her in front of this demonslayer I will make you regret your very existance.'
he finished is warning, he would have made sure that Yona herself would have heard every word so she knew what was going on. To him it was her mind and body so she deserved that right, the mind was sacrid even to his kind and the body though just a shell at the end of the day was still hers to do as she wished with. Hearing that she wasn't causing trouble at least with the tallest male amongst them made him nod "That's good at least but it seems you made quite a few unhappy people inside the bar, did you really wipe them in cards?"
he said the thoughts of the ones inside that had been playing almost feeling like they were yelling their thoughts "One of them is even wondering how he's going to explain it to his wife."
he said with a shrug, to be honest he never did understand currency that much everything was done via trade inside his home realm and even within his cast things were done via bartering information or souls.
When he was thanked for the gift he shrugged, he was told to pick an additional prize and he chose a necklace that was simple but was pleasing to even his eyes. He wasn't one for trinkets but she seemed to like such things so it was kinda clear that she should have it, it would have likely went to a child or got thrown in one of his many piles of what he classed as junk inside his sanctum. Thing was these piles were filled with things from different eras, different nations and such. It was when he was asked about the man he had called out to he looked up at her his eyes still hidden by his hood. "I'm not suggesting anything. I know he's a real life walking, talking zombie."
he said as if it was just an every day occurance to him, in a way he guessed it was but that was neither here nor there at this point. "Little Yona girl, perhaps you should help the warrior king here so he might be able to do his divine task that much better..."
he said sniffing at the air again "It smells of infection and perhaps the early onset of gangreen."
he continued, he knew that people got wounded doing their jobs and that there was nothing really wrong with it but infection was a horrible way to go and often painful. "Gangting, she wouldn't die even if you put your sword through her neck to try take it clean off."
his voice calm as if he knew she would survive such a thing "All it would do is make a lot of people upset and her likely angry."
he said with a smile and a shrug as he finished that matter.
Oykai nodded to the question "If you mean Bennu, yes he still is able to call for his help. Why you still jealous?" he asked knowing how the giant of a man had reacted when he first seen Ruvel call for him. "His health isn't public knowlege and I really can't give that information."
he said putting that question to a quick end hoping that no further enquiry would go into it "Bennu almost ate him when he first hatched but due to an illness that Ruvel himself helps him with he was seemingly adopted into Bennu's family and has been with him ever since."
it was as simple as that as far as he was concerned but of course there was more to it that he didn't really want to get into. Hearing the next statement actually made him thing "I don't actually think Ruvel has friends. He has aquaintences and collegues to my knowledge, I could be wrong on that fact however I still don't understand him fully."
he informed the taller male and left him to make his own mind up on things. "Even demons themselves are not all evil, it is just the race they have been born into and how they do things to survive. You should make sure that demons you are slaying deserve it or it is nothing but murder."
he said offering some advice from his own vast knowledge, to him noting was inherintly evil nor inherintly good it came down to how you were raised and what you needed to do to survive. To him nothing was black and white and so this is why his own cast didn't play judge, jury and exocutioner when it came to spirits so to speak they just done their duty and took them to their judgement before taking them to where they needed to go if they decided to go down that route at all.
He heaed a person asked him to try his luck at a tossing game and even the secondary challenge that Gangting had said after it "I would rather burn my sanctum to the ground than eat the stuff this realm calls food."
he said showing it wasn't going to happen in any way, shape or form. He watched as the giant of a man gave little effort to the game and walked towards the food eating challenge after being handed the trophy. "So given the eatting manerism of his culture and time, we should be well stood back."
he said manovering Yona to where he believed was safe not knowing what was going to happen but putting nothing to chance. He watched what was going on and chuckled "Maybe I was wrong this is actually quite entertaining."
he said watching what was happening with the other participants followed by Gangting using his bellow to get rid of his own seeing the circles the suckers had made on the man's face made him snicker as he started to laugh happily but it was quick lived as he helped the others get rid of their own 'food'. As he walked back to them he nodded "Yes, he is an undead."
he let him know turning to see the one he beckoned over reach them after having an argument with a crow.
He smiled and looked to the crow "Give him the night, he isn't going anywhere after all."
he spoke to the ever watching eyes of what he believed was his 'fathers' "This is the season he can have a little of his former life back and not be stared at or hated by the living."
he said his tone was calm but it held pain in the undertone as he himself knew this, more so the latter due to his own task in the cycle of life and death. His eyes turned to him when he heard the 'who me' comment and sighed "No the other sword weilding undead samurai beside you, what do you think?"
he said sarcastically watching as he got closer his and watching his movements "No need for that, we aren't going to attack you after all this is a festival not a battlefield."
he tried to put the other to ease but wither or not it happened was another thing completely. His eyes went back to the crow once more "You can take your leave, I'll take care of him."
he commented watching to see if the crow would actually leave or not. "Oh that's true but each role has their odd balls don't you think?"
he asked with a smile raising his head just enough so Mifune would be able to see his soul filled blood ruby eyes.
