    Amalie


    The Silverleaf Resort and Spa was one of the nicest vacation spots in Hosenka, which was exactly why Amalie had booked it for a well-deserved break for herself and her significant other. Truth be told, things hadn't been particularly easy for the pair lately, it had a lot of work and no play. Fight after fight, even normal dates or just the task of walking home seemed to break into some kind of escapade of violence. It was fine, they were good fighters but also Amalie found herself craving the need to just relax, and she could see that Johann needed it to. She had given him a call, not long after her stressful meeting with the Magic Council, she had called Joffrey. Forcing her assistant to hunt down her significant other, she had talked to him about the prospect of a break and they had agreed that it was time.

    So after making some arrangements, she had found herself travelling to Hosenka. She had arrived at the hotel a little early, having made Joffrey gather and pack her things for herself and Johann. This would mean that Joh would only need to meet her at the front lobby. After changing from her normal clothes into a sleek red dress, Amalie waited in the hotel's seating area, her icy blue eyes glancing towards the door every now and then. Admittedly, she was more excited about this than she would let on, it had felt like so long since she and Johann had been on a date. The prospect of enjoying some time alone was incredibly appealing to the Dies Irae Commander. Johann was an important man after all, but tonight, she wanted him all to herself.

    The sun was already descending, giving way to the certainty of a nightly twilight that returned day after day. It was somewhat of a relief. While days had not yet begun to get shorter again, the sunset meant that temperatures would reach a bearable level once more. Not to mention the fact that, once the celestial body touched the blanket of summer clouds, it had begun to fill them with its orange glow, giving them a breathtaking appearance as they hung low in the sky. A perfect evening, the Ambassador of Dies Irae thought, though today, he would not be Ambassador von Weiss. Instead, he hoped to be simply Johann. In truth, the continuous and ever-increasing work that had to be done for the guild, now that, after a while of Dies Irae maintaining its operations and people witnessing first-hand the positive effect they had on their lifes, the guild had become more accepted in the ranks of Earthlandian society. The ranks of the guild filled with recruits, and more contracts had started to trickle in, more than ever before, in fact, and while the silver-haired man appreciated that the organization of Soldiers seemed to be doing well, it also meant more work for him and his officers, most notably, of course, Sivvy and Amalie.

    All the more surprised had he been when Amalie's quirky assistant had managed to track him down in the middle of his operations in the guild hall with a message from his Commander, that, much to his delight, turned out to be an invitation to Hosenka. Admittedly, the man couldn't help but feel instinctual relief and excitement. Would it be okay to leave guild matters be guild matters for just a short while? Well, he had no other choice. If he kept working like he had, he was certain that eventually, he would actually lose his mind, as, much like Amalie, the silver-haired man lamented the fact that all he, and more specifically, the two of them together would do these days seemed to consist of jobs, missions, guild work, contracts, and other descriptions amounting to the same thing.

    So, instead of donning the onyx-black uniform of his usual persona as the guild's Ambassador this day, he was wearing a dark striped suit, the fresh evening breeze blowing through his argent streaks as he walked along a gravel path towards the unquestionably pompous hotel building that they were supposed to meet at, a spark of excited anticipation that was normally absent beating in his chest. This was anything but routine, which made him appreciate all the more. With certain steps, the man would push open the doors to the building, looking around briefly before spotting her. A smirk, coupled with an expression of pleasant awe finding their way onto the man's face as he got closer before reaching her.

    "I didn't expect this to be something so ... grandiose. Not that I am complaining, though. You look wonderful, Amalie", the silver-haired man joked in an unusually casual manner, holding out his hand to help her from her seat and, once she had taken it, pull her closer and kiss her. It was a distinct greeting, of course, but he did not think it out of place. Indeed, this night wouldn't be for anyone else. Just the two of them, something that, in truth, he had been missing for a little while.

    The sight of her other half sent a little jolt through the woman, watching as he entered the hotel. She smirked as he approached her, taking his hand she would stand, eagerly allowing him to pull her close and meeting his kiss with eager lips. Kissing him back with all the fuel of a woman with a latent need for her lover's affections. After several indulgent moments, she would pull away, glancing up at him with her own playful expression.

    "Well if we're going to take a break, we might as well do it right. And as do you, positively delicious." She told him in a husky tone, leaning forward and stealing another quick chaste kiss before stepping back. She slid her fingers into his hand, intertwining her hands with his. "Come, I have a table booked at the hotel restaurant. It's supposed to be delicious here," She told him, taking the lead she would steer him across the hotel lobby, moving in the general direction of the dining area.

    "So how was the guild today? Did I miss much?" She asked him conversationally. Her burgundy heels clicking against the ivory marble as she strode across the extravagant hotel with Johann in tow. As they arrived at the Silverleaf Lounge, Amalie approached the front desk, stating her name for the booking. After a brief moment checking the list to confirm, the pair were guided into the Midian style restaurant, which was as equally ostentatious and beautiful as the rest of the hotel. They were seated at a private booth, much to Amalie's excitement, she would let go of Johann's hand as she slid into her seat across from him.

    "Some complimentary sake for the couple," The voice of waiter causing her to glance up, having appeared so swiftly at their table that she hadn't even noticed him. He quickly began setting down the sake set, pouring them each a Choko cup of the amber fluid. Amalie's shot Johann a glance, arching her brow at the display, impressed by the professionalism of the restaurant. Thanking the waiter, she waited until he was out of earshot, before scooping up her little cup. "Mmm, don't mind if I do. Cheers, I guess, to a night for ourselves," She said, raising the cup and clinking it against Johanns.

    The man definitely appreciated the kiss they shared, giving in to the fleeting moment of closeness, comfort, and passion  as long as he could. How long had it been since they had greeted one another in such an anticipating, but gleeful manner? He didn't know, and truthfully, it didn't matter. What mattered today was the moment.

    "I agree entirely", the man would reply after they'd parted from their brief embrace only to be met with another passing, momentary kiss, his smirk briefly transitioning to a small grin. Truthfully, the woman looked especially gorgeous today, the silver-haired man letting his eyes wander over the attractive dress before returning to her face and eyes, nuanced by just the right amount of make-up. Letting her grasp intertwine with his own, he would take a position at her side, looking forward to what this night had to offer. "I can't wait to see what you have planned", he would answer her with a satisfied, content tone. He honestly welcomed her efforts, and was determined to make the best of the plans she had made so that they both could enjoy time off together. That, and he was eager to, for once in a blue, spend a good time with the woman he loved.

    "If you're interested in talking about the same old monotonous paperwork, then I suppose. Let's rather not. I'm more interested in where we'll go tonight", the man would answer with overt excitement, following her eagerly as she led him to another section of the hotel. From there, it wouldn't take long untilt he two would be seated at their table, Johann letting his gaze wander across the extravagant Midi-themed restaurant. The space reeked of excellence, something that Johann had consciously sought to distance himself from over his life, though he had to admit that this was not just impressive and imposing, but also quite the enjoyable atmosphere. He had never tried Midian food, and as such, had to say that the prospect of sharing this with Amalie was enticing. Promptly, a waiter would begin to serve the two, delivering what smelled like alcohol in small, fancy clay cups that, just like the rest of the place, were entirely too fancy in their decoration. Johann, similarly impressed with the aesthetic of this event, watched as the man poured them each a drink, the man keenly taking the container into his hand when the blue-haired woman across the table did. "Cheers-", he would reply swiftly, similarly raising it to hers, "-to a night for ourselves".

    Taking the cup against his lips, the man would readily drink the contents, the taste of alcohol filling his mouth, though it was worth noting that this drink was incredibly smooth, with the usual burn of his drink taking a rather secondary role. It was surprisingly delicious, to say the least. Closer to his taste than a cocktail or wine was. "This is delightful", he would comment out loud, smiling as he looked over to Amalie. "If this says anything about the rest of their menu, then I believe we are in for a treat".

    Amalie


    Amalie had to suppress the urge to grin, encouraged by his own excitement for the evening. As he dismissed the conversation about work, she nodded, understanding completely why he wouldn't want to talk about the trivialities of the guild. Especially considering how repetitive it was most of the time. After they reached the restaurant and settled into their seats, and taking their cups in hand. Amalie would beam at his partners cheers, before bringing the cup to her lips. Draining the contents of the Choko, she finished off the contents pretty quickly. It didn't occur to her just how much she needed that drink until now.

    Lowering the clay cup onto the table, she licked her lips,. Sitting back in her chair, ice blue irises looking up at Johann, a satisfied smile on her lips. "Mmm, I'd certainly say so. It came highly recommended," She told him, reaching across the table for one of the fancy leather booklets that consisted of the menu. Flicking it open, she scanned the options curiously, trying to figure out what she was in the mood for. After which she would place the menu down and top up their sake once more. Once she was satisfied with the drinks, she would lower the sake bottle. Bringing her hands to her lap, she would lean forward slightly, her tone brimming with excitement as she began to fill him in on her plans.  "So, I took the liberty of booking us one of the deluxe suites here. It's a very extravagant room if I do say so myself; a skyline view, mini-bar and jacuzzi. I was thinking maybe after dinner, we could enjoy a little dip." She told him keenly, her tone was entirely flirtatious and suggestive, running her fingers down the length of her lap, her thighs pressing together under the table. Everything about her body language was indicative of what possibilities that she had in mind for later, when they were very much alone. "I wasn't sure what you would want to do tomorrow, so I left our schedule free. Although there's a list of brochures and whatnot for activities we can partake in over the weekend."

    As the familiar warmth of alcohol settled in the silver-haired man's torso, he would immediately find himself wanting a refill of the small clay cup before him. It wasn't often that a drink would surprise him so much, and even then, he wouldn't often enjoy exploring his tastes a little bit, as he was sure several people around him had found out at this point, though this had been a thorough success. "I can understand why. This place is just ...", he paused as his thoughts seemed to trail off for a second before he would catch himself, "-Ah, you know ... it's just that we haven't had a moment like this in a while. I think it's been long overdue", the man would finish his sentence with a genuine smile that perhaps made obvious some of the happiness he felt.

    The fact that Amalie had organized all of this just for the two of them was admittedly moving the man a little more than he'd thought. It was quite considerate of not just herself and him, but also their relationship as a whole. Admittedly, maintaining such a thing had proven harder than he would've guessed, especially given the fact that both of them seemed caught up in guild work most of the time. The fact that they had moved in together, of course, had helped somewhat. Perhaps, the man thought, the two just needed to take some time off more regularly. Simply leave behind their responsibilities and duties for a weekend and be amongst themselves like they would now. He would like that.

    "A deluxe suite, huh?", Johann would repeat with a playful grin, taking one of the menus as well before leisurely scanning it for anything that particularly stood out to him, though not without turning his attention back to Amalie intermittently. "How exquisite. I'm sure that I would thoroughly enjoy that", he would chuckle under his breath while following the movement of her fingers with his eyes. He appreciated the back and forth between him and the woman. It almost felt casual, normal, as if they were nothing more than a regular couple on a night out, a feeling that was all-too-often lost, not least due to their particular line of work. When she talked about the next day, Johann looked up from the menu once more, a sheepish grin on his face. "That sounds ... interesting, but I have to admit that I'm not really sure what kind of activities one can indulge in around here. Maybe you can fill me in?". Well, apart from eating Sushi at a train statio corner shop. That had been about the only experience he'd had with Hosenka, Midian food and, concidentally, it had also been where he had met the girl who was now his fellow Ambassador.

    Thinking of sushi, though, he would return his attention to the menu. Perhaps it was about time to pick a starter? "Do you have your eyes on something?", he asked curiously, eagerly trying to find an item that interested him especially.

    Amalie


    Amalie would nod in agreement in regards to how the need for some alone time for the couple was long overdue, "The burden of what we do will unfortunately take just as much as it gives, if not more." She remarked, her tone slightly more solemn. For all the great that Dies Irae was doing across the land of Ishgar, it came with strain in various ways. There was still the frustration of their reputation, which some still argued was questionable in nature. Then there was the want for more, for all the people they saved, hundreds were still dying at the hands of criminals everyday. From it stemmed a great frustration within the woman, the want to do better, to be better.

    His reply to her hot tub suggestion cause her to bite her lip, she was thoroughly enjoying this. The simple exchange of sitting down, sharing a drink, playful flirting with one another. It felt so good to Amalie, the normality of it all was pleasantly euphoric. Amalie took a moment to remember the contents of the brochures she had briefly perused before getting ready to meet him. "Well there's couples massages, various body treatments as far as I can tell, and I believe I saw a pool bar in the back wing of the hotel. I'm fairly certain there's more but I can't recall them all off the top of my head," She explained, "There was also some sightseeing options if you're interested in that. I've never been to Hosenka before so this is all entirely new to me. Have you been here before?"

    She would glance back down at the menu, once again perusing the options. A few of the choices grabbing her attention, "I like the sound of the assorted Tempura starter, and maybe a Prawn Katsu Donburi rice bowl for my main. What about you?"

    "You're right", the silver-haired man would agree wholeheartedly, nodding his head as Amalie had made the statement about the nature of their work for the guild at large. It was undeniable that their efforts were herculean, especially given the rigidity of established systems. The world had to adapt to their presence, and the man had expected no less, especially given the fact that they were not only endorsed, but also sponsored by the Magic Council of Fiore ... at least for the time being. "I hope that it will all be worth it in the end, though. It's a massive task, it's a demanding task, but if we can make the world at least a little better, then I think we have accomplished our mission", he would follow up in an almost unconcerned, matter of fact manner. He believed wholeheartedly that the work they were doing was good, that his intentions were good despite the fact that the nature of their work could be ... more than just a little grim, at times. Someone had to do it, though, and he knew that the Soldiers of the guild were willing to make sacrifices to accomplish this goal. He himself certainly was. Still, despite devoting almost all of his time to Dies Irae, it felt good to let its matters rest, even if it was only for a little, fleeting while.

    Once more setting the clay cup to his lips and emptying the container in one fluid motion, he would thoroughly enjoy and indulge in this beverage one more time. "A pool bar?", Johann repeated back, honestly surprised that such a thing even existed, though intrigued by the prospect of what he assumed was a bar ... by a pool? In a pool? He'd never seen one for himself, making a mental note to give that some attention. "I'm sure we'll figure something out. I'll have to admit, I don't really know much about Hosenka, either. Well ...", he would pause briefly, reminiscing old times for a short moment. "... I was here before, this city is where I met Sivvy when I was still the Vice President of the West Fiore Trading Company. That was a short stay, though, and it's been a while", he would explain his past with this particular population center.

    "I'll be honest-", he started after Amalie had listed a few things she was interested in, smiling a little sheepishly once more. "-the only thing I really know is Sushi, and only because I've tried some before. Tempura- what is that?". He would briefly look at the menu once more. "I think a bowl of Ramen noodles sounds like something I would be interested in to start off with". That was an understatement, of course. Johann was an excessive eater. Not quite as proficient as Sivvy, but his metabolism was something else, and if it was up to him he would simply try all of these things tonight. That would likely be anything but classy, a social faux-pas, considering their fancy location, he imagined, narrowing down his choice for dishes to pick from a little more than he otherwise would.

    Amalie


    Listening to Johann talk about the purpose of the guild was a pleasant experience for Amalie particularly how positive his stance was on it. She would reach across the table and squeeze his hand, a means to reassure him that she would support him no matter what. She loved that about him, the pride and efforts he took to maintain Dies Irae. It was a testament to his character really. It didn't matter what general opinion about their nature of their work, they were doing justice to the world and making it a better place. Truly, that was all that mattered.

    Amalie's eyes widened in mild surprise she didn't know that about her ambassadors. She smiled warmly, innately pleased that this was the place that had brought one of her closest friends into her life. When she had met Sivvy at her apartment in Tolgalen on Johann's orders, she had no idea of the friendship that would bloom from that little shopping trip. "Well, that's a lovely coincidence. Can you imagine what our lives would be like without her?" She commented idly, reminiscing on all of the pleasants moments and exchanges that had occurred since them meeting.

    "Tempura?" She echoed, "Ahh, er, I guess the best way to describe it is like meat that had been battered and deep fried." She answered, glancing down at the menu. After a second look, she was pretty satisfied with her choice, which was convenient as it would seem that the waiter had returned to take their order. After stating what she wanted, Amalie would hand him the menu before turning to Johann. "Okay so, I know that work talk is off the table but... I have something that I been thinking about for a well. And it's kind of important..." She straightened up slightly, her expression a little more serious than before.

    "Do you remember all the kids we saved in Kenrojima? Well, I got a call from the hostels that we've been keeping them in and they've said we need to move them. But the issue that I have if I put them all in Orphanages, due to capacity we'd have to separate them. And considering all that they went through..." She trailed off, the image of the bodies hanging from the beams flickering through her mind. She pushed the thought away, not wanting to dwell on such a sad memory. "So I was thinking... I've been saving up for a while and considering that we live together now. I completely understand if you don't want me to do this but..." She paused, her ice blues eyes locking onto his.

    "I want to open an Ophanage on Amber Island."

    "Positively more busy, I want to assume. She's an immense help", the silver-haired man would answer the question, even though it might've been of a more rethorical nature than he had understood. In truth, Sivvy, or Seven, as she had introduced herself on that day, had been of great assistance to Dies Irae, not just as a Soldier, but also as a leader. She had grown into her role, something that felt the man with a certain sense of pride in his friend and former mentee.

    "Really? I see ...", the man would respond with a certain intrigue, once more finding himself perusing the myriad of entries on the restaurants menu in a bout of indicisiveness. Perhaps Tempura would be a better option than Ramen, though, then again, both of these options sounded very tempting in their own right. As much as he wanted to hold himself back, he would just have to take both, after Amalie had placed her order with the returning waiter, ordering his own food, perhaps with a little too much excited anticipation in his voice. He couldn't help himself.

    After that had been dealt with, though, he would focus his attention on his date once more as she begun bringing up another matter, the silver-haired man already fearing something bothersome when she talked about "work" and the matter at hand being "important". To his surprise, however, her explanation would contain a twist as she went back to the Kenrojima expedition, something that Johann still vividly held in his memory. How could he not? On a practical, professional, and humanitarian level it had been a complete and utter disaster for the guild, but at least, as she had mentioned, they had managed to rescue the remaining civilians, despite the fact that the island was, and probably would remain, in ruin. Johann's eyebrows inched closer together. The man took a deep breath, expecting some grim or dark news, though instead, he was met with something ... decidely less so.

    His expression would shift into one of surprise. Had she been thinking about this the entire time? The man couldn't help but think back to his own time on the streets after his parents had died. How he had fought for his survival. How miserable he had been. How insiginificant, how alone he had felt. He chuckled softly, looking up at Amalie with a grin. "I think that that's a fantastic idea!", he exclaimed in a genuine and sudden burst of ardor. "Honestly, we should've considered that from the start. We would be finished by now! Ah, no matter. We can still work on it. Oh, well-", he would pause briefly, a certain consideration briefly putting a stop to his enthusiasm. "-We'll have to, uh, take great care to keep them away from our work. I wouldn't want the children to, you know, ... have to go through the same things ever again".

    Amalie


    Amalie would smirk in amusement at his remark about Sivvy's contribution to the guild, it was questionable as to whether a truer statement could be made. Sivvy's work ethic was infallible, just one of the many impressive qualities about Dies Irae's female Ambassador that contributed to why Amalie respected her so much. Sivvy, despite Amalie's initial annoyance when meeting her, had become an irreplaceable commodity in her life.

    The woman had always dismissed friendships as a rather unnecessary thing, a waste of time even. She had tried it once before, and the results had been devastating. Offputting really. And yet since meeting the Rose-haired stoic faced girl, Amalie admittedly couldn't imagine her life without her. In fact, she despised the thought.

    Amalie would find herself observing Johann as he happily perused the menu, the sight of his joviality over the food pleasing her immensely. She had really wanted this weekend not just for herself, but for him too. The pressure that she felt, was even greater for him and the concern she felt over the continuous strain on her other half was plentiful. With genuine worry, she often wondered how the job was affecting him and felt an intense urge to relieve that weight in any way she could. But alas, she could only do so much, which was why this trip away was so important. For the two of them to just, for the first time in a long while, take it easy.

    After ordering, the conversation would steer back to the case of their existing stressors, and she would put forward her suggestion. Her pale blue gaze watching his expression, unintentionally she would find herself holding her breath as she waited for his response. And then he would chuckle and offer how that handsome grin of his, enthusiastic approving of her suggestion. She released the breathe and allowed the smile to creep across her lips. "Well that was my initial concern but, I can't think of a better solution honestly. I think we could really create something amazing, somewhere they can feel safe. Excellent! I suppose we can get started after we go back, I have so many plans I just... this is so wonderful." For a moment, Amalie would find it difficult to contain herself, really she wanted to walk across the table and throw herself onto Johann's lap in order to celebrate properly. But unfortunately, they were very much in public and that hardly seemed appropriate. Still, once again she found herself reminded of the reason she had fallen for Johann, and subsequently, she found herself filled with adoration for the man.

    "I can't tell you how much this means to me," She whispered softly to him. "The truth of the matter is there just isn't a great support system for homeless children, it certainly wasn't for me. Kids shouldn't have..." She trailed off for a moment, realising that at the moment she had revealed something about herself that they had perhaps not talked about before. She glanced down, shifting uncomfortably in her seat. "... kids shouldn't have to go through that you know." She finished quietly, reaching across the table, she would grab her sake cup. Bringing the alcoholic drink to her lips once more, she would finish it all in a few hearty sips.

    "I certainly agree!", the Ambassador would nod vigorously with a wide grin. He was quite enthusiastic about the prospect of a thing such as an orphanage, especially given the fact that the guild seemed to always have a need for the services of one. Their work was dangerous, of course, and people accepted that fact, though it was often that Soldiers would witness the murder of a child's parents, with them being the only survivor. It was an unfortunate and deplorable fact of their work, of life in general, but a fact nonetheless, and if Dies Irae wasn't there to prevent every such scenario, well, at least they could soothe the pain and aid the victims, offer them a little bit of safety in an uncertain and hostile world. "Yes, let's get started right away, as soon as we return. I can facilitate the allocation of all necessary resources immediately. If we need financing-", he would pause briefly, thinking back to his excursion to the Royal Bank of Minstrel not too terribly long ago, as well as the fact that their vaults were now a significant portion emptier than before, "-well, that shouldn't be a problem, either".

    "For ... you?", the man would raise an eyebrow with a questioning tone, considering the implication of her words. "Ah ... I didn't know that ... you know. I'm sorry, I didn't realize ...". He took a deep breath. "No, they shouldn't have to, I certainly understand that". Johann felt like he had gained a little more insight into the woman's motivation. It added up with the things the woman  "It ... It isn't easy on the streets, I know that. It would be ... would've been helpful to have a system like this". It wasn't easy talking about this, he knew. He had been through similar things, after all, though his response was ambiguous enough to be interpreted as addressing what she had said or his own past, depending on how one looked at it. He preferred not to talk about it. The smile would vanish briefly as he spoke, but would return swiftly as he returned to the topic at hand. "It's a splendid idea, for sure. I think it's a step towards our end goal, making the world just that little bit of a better place", he would say with a gleeful undertone.

    Still, now that Amalie had mentioned it, he had become a little curious. It was something that she had never really gotten into, her past, that was, and the man wanted to know about the fact that they seemed to share this aspect of their teenage years. "Forgive me if this is a little too direct, and don't feel obligated to answer me, but ... I didn't know that you spent time on the streets. How did ... how did that happen?".

    Amalie


    As she expected, Johann wasn't one to miss a trick. Her eyes remained trained on the Choko cup, her fingers twirling the cup on the table in an almost purposeful manner. Although really it was just fidgeting, an uncomfortable twitch to do something as he pieced together her little slip-up, apologizing once again for something that wasn't his fault. For things that had happened years before his presence in her life.

    Amalie nodded curtly, glancing back up at him as he chose to refer to the more positive aspect of the subject, the future as opposed to the past. She smiled back at him, albeit slightly less enthusiastically than before. "It is, I have high hopes for its success." She agreed, her words earnest. She really did have the best aspirations for the Orphanage, she wanted to give back to these children and to give them what was deprived of her. To welcome them no matter what the circumstance, so that no children would ever have to feel so ... utterly lost.

    For a moment, she assumed that they would move on from the subject. Sticking to their habits of brushing such cusps of unpleasantries under the carpet and pretending their existence wasn't at all bothersome to either one of them. But this would not be the case, much to her surprise he chose to ask about it. Her expression fell once more, her eyes darting towards her drink, although she considered offering him a drink and choosing to change the subject it occurred to her that this wouldn't be ideal. She loved Johann, she loved their relationship and in order to be in a relationship, there needed to be trust. Trust in one's secrets, trust that when you lifted the carpet and showed one another the unpleasantries that they would choose to remain regardless.

    So instead, she straightened up in her seat, clearing her throat. She brought her gaze back to her love, her ice blue irises locking onto his heterochromia toned ones. And so, she began to spoke, her voice soft at first but firmer and more direct as she went on. "My mother wasn't very dependable. I'm sure you're aware of her... career choice. Well, in many cases, when a woman stoops to such a lifestyle it comes from a place of desperation. And in the case of Lana Blossom, that desperation stemmed from substance abuse. Anything she could take or use that meant she didn't have to be... present. We managed to get by for as long as we could, I was quite good at finding means to cover our rent, even if it was often late. By the time I was fifteen her... issues became a little more difficult to manage, anything I gathered she took for herself, squandered it. Our means of living crushed into powder and snorted right up her nose." Her voice was riddled of hints of frustration and resentment, her fingers clenching and unclenching as she told him this.

    "I don't blame our landlord, he was very lenient for many years. But eventually, we reached a point where even he couldn't look away and so we were kicked out. Social services tried to come for me, I would have gone with them too but... I..." Amalie stopped for a moment, composing herself. She didn't want to become even more visibly upset, especially not int such a public place. But the more she got into it, the harder it was to stop. And her words flooded forth, an angry barrage of buried upset and forgotten pain. "...you know, I thought I hated her. For what she put me through, years and years of it. I had no childhood to speak of, I became a pariah for her. Arrested for stealing, attacked even, just to put food on our table. She never cared, we'd go hungry for days, but as long as she had something to take the edge off. And even after all that, when they offered me an out... I couldn't leave her. She would have died without me, I knew it, she knew it. So I stayed, even if it meant being without a roof over our heads..." She drifted off, growing quiet once more. That had been quite a rant and she wasn't really sure how to feel about it. On one hand, it felt good to say it out loud, to unload all of the pent up shit that had weighed her down significantly. But it was also a shameful truth, a weakness even. With its unveiling, she felt somewhat... vulnerable as she sat across from him.

    "Two years, and then I finally became free of her. Our family found out what had happened to us, and for fear of further tarnishing their reputation they decided to take action with her, they put her in a facility that would... treat her issues. And it was shortly after then that I met Wyatt. And well, you know the rest..."

    The mood had shifted from one moment to the next, and the silver-haired Ambassador knoew that the question he had asked was a heavy one. His eyes would leave hers and sink to the table before them for a few moments before rising back up again, the regret he felt for manifesting his curiosity in a more or less direct inquiry obvious in his expression. He knew that this was a day they were supposed to enjoy, but through his desire to know what had been on his lover's mind, he wondered if he had already brought this original intent to a state of ruin. Still, now that she had begun to tell her story, he wasn't going to interrupt her, out of respect for both the story she was telling, her past, as well as the courage Amalie had mustered to even share her experiences with him.

    And they hit home.

    Her words invoked imagery within his mind, emotions, scenes that flashed past his inner eye. The feeling of hunger, of cold, overwhelming uncertainty, pain, and most of all, anger. The sheer unending feeling of frustration, the knowledge that all of this was someone elses fault, and the hate that was born from it. He supposed that this was where his philosophy differed from that of the woman. He didn't know if she still hated her mother, but the Ambassador, even just thinking about it, was reminded of his hatred for his own family. He remembered the day some 30 years ago quite clearly, but he quickly sought to rid himself of that particularly disappointing memory, the emotions that welled up within him hidden under a fassade of carefully practiced stoicism as he listened, breathing a soft sigh when she finished before taking a deep breath. His emotions had subsided somewhat, though he was still frustrated. Frustrated that this had happened to the woman he held so dear, frustrated that stories like these seemed to be more common than he thought. Well, they couldn't change the past, but they could combat the latter fact. The Orphanage was the first step to this goal. The mission of Dies Irae was another one. They just needed the time and means to realize their vision.

    For the time being, however, that was a thought that was not yet rooted in reality. His head would best remain in the situation at hand, the man instinctively stretching out his hand to take hers. He wanted to show her that he was here for her if she needed it, perhaps give her a certain sense of comfort in what she had told him. "I see", he would begin initially, finding that another expression of apology and regret would be inappropriate in this setting. Instead, he would continue with a reassuring tone and hopefully compassionate expression. "Thank you ... for telling me, Amalie. I'm sure it wasn't easy". He could empaphize with her and the emotions she felt, the shame, the weakness, but it just made her stronger in the Ambassador's eyes. The fact that she could talk about it, that she could bring this issue that had weighed her down to him, that she could admit her moments of uncertainty, of weakness, anger, and frustration, it was admirable, and once more, the man found himself reminded of why he loved her. The woman he had before himself was someone who had succeeded, despite the things that life had burdened her with, and in a certain sense, he wished that he could've been the same. Of course, that was in the past, and things were different now. While the past was undoubtedly heavy and dark, the future would be all the more bright in contrast.

    "I'm sorry that I brought it up. I didn't mean to make you uncomfortable", he would follow up, seeking to try and ease tension a bit, though unsure over how to proceed. It was a difficult topic to navigate, and he, from experience, realized that there probably had been a lot more inhibitions to discuss this in a setting like this one. "I think your story shows that your suggestion is important for people like, well, us, right? We can prevent things like these from happening again. We'll help those that need our help the most", he would attempt to instill comfort through reassurance, though, of course, unsure how Amalie would react to his words.

    I will never ask for nothing that I won't give in return
    You will never have to question the value of my words

    As her tale came to its end she would examine her other half carefully, despite all their time together she still found him so hard to read sometimes. Sometimes she could tell how something affected him, like when members of the guild were being troublesome or not acting according to the guild's expectations. That response she could narrate with ease, but knowing how he would perceive this painful piece of her history. This she couldn't tell. When in came to family-related anecdotes, they had always been somewhat quiet. Little snippets came out here and there, like the arrival of Danny and Sammy at the guild and how angry Johann had gotten at their arrival. One of the few time, Amalie had found herself acting against him, although the alcohol hadn't helped in that scenario. He would thank her for sharing her story, to which she offered a soft smile.

    "It's not but... I'm glad you know. If I want to share my life with you, I guess it's important to really share it. Skeletons and all." She added, genuinely meaning it. She really did want to progress with Johann, to move forward, but their couldn't do that if she held back. It was terrifying really, allowing yourself to be so vulnerable in front of someone else. But with Johann, she found that it didn't matter because no matter how exposed she was to him, he always made her feel safe. Like it didn't matter how much had happened in the past, because with him things would be different, and she could finally be at ease.

    As he apologised to her, she would frown, shaking her head at him. Reaching across the table, she would take his hands. "Please don't apologize, I'm happy to answer. As I said, I want to open myself up to you, it feels ...nice. I feel, closer to you." She would adjust her grip, placing her left hand under his, then using the fingers of her right hand to stroke his arm. A subtle gesture of affection on her part. "Definitely, it means a lot to me, a personal journey you might say. To prevent what happened to me from happening to others," She agreed, she hadn't missed the hint in his words. Us. He had said. It was as though there was something behind that word, a story of his own. "You know, we've been together for... some time. And we don't ever talk about the past, which I guess is easier. To lock it up in a box, and pretend it never happened. But just how I want to be more open to you, I want you to know that. I'm always here to listen if you ever need to ... unload. But only of course, if you feel comfortable. I don't want to pry or push you ever, but... as you carry my burdens. I am happy to hold the weight of yours..."
