Reina's hands found no purchase on Tim as she was in the air. She braced herself for the inevitable fall but found herself short, quickly turning to voice her aggression. Only to find a finger right near her face.
She may had been tempted to bite at the limb save for the suspicious substance dripping from it. She couldn't have placed where it came from. A open wound? Regardless, the substance traveled down his finger until it hit the light to where it hissed and vanished. Looking at him now, the way he held in the shadows of the room made him ominous, even the very light itself now seemed...off.
With her aggression made useless and her left at his whim, she more or less had to listen to his lecture. It wasn't really a drag for Reina once he brought up gods. The truth was her own father had a particular fascination with god that she couldn't explain why, and here this guy was bringing up multiple of them.
So she listened as he began to speak with curiosity, even if he brought up certain words that stung like a hornet. Seriously she was twenty years old!
And was surprised at how he spoke of them! Egotistical, meddling, arrogant, he made them sound so...human.
"But why do you say us-" she was cut off as he continued, and her ire was stoked as he compared dragons to them, dragons! Her father was nothing of the sort, to be like that! Indeed he was right that her father had no need to shake a mountain willingly, why sometimes he did so after he got mad. Though it did bring up a serious question; why does he view dragons as so? If he had met her father, he clearly wouldn't have such a misguided opinion.
Her thoughts were interrupted as he positioned himself in front of the room's door, now away from the window light of the room, more of the inky black substance had covered his arms and face. The black oil seemed to be part of his skin by this point, the formations granting Tim a far more sinister look then before.
“I’ve yet to see a powerful god.” she watched as he let out a dry laugh. “And from what I’ve heard about dragons, they’re on the same pathetic boat.”
How could he say such a thing! He had clearly never seen a dragon in person! If he did, he would know the splendor, the majesty, why she-
-was the closest thing for him to witness of a dragon.
Who was wrapped up and bed ridden.
Who was stopped by a simple spell.
Much like the appearance of purple light burning away the ink on Tim's body, the truth burned away the questions that had been brought up. She was the closest thing Tim...no, most of the people around her have had with a dragon! And all that she had shown them was weakness, the fight that put her in this bed was proof enough of it. The fight with-
"...Yes Mercury she has awaken. Someone on staff volunteered to bring lunch up for her to see if she can manage it. Yeah the one who showed up after you ah, did your thing. Yes it's just me-"
Reina had tuned out the rest of the conversation, only focusing on the name. Mercury, the one who took her hits with ease. Mercury, the one with such abominable power. The one who was circling the corner now. A look of creeping dread and fright was building on the young slayer's face as the footsteps neared, and as soon she heard them round the corner she would disappear in a puff of white smoke, leaving only a pillow floating in the air.
"...Well given that she's up now I'm sure it would be fine to come by if you wish, though she may not be happy to see you. N-not that I'm trying to tell you what to do!" The man who turned the corner was talking into a Ilac when his eyes met with Tim's. A sense of urgency on the nurse's face emerged as he hurried over while, very politely and in a rush, ending the call.
"Hi! I think it was Tim right? I would had been here sooner but I got tied up with the mess hall, I think a pup had their way with the food." The brown skinned man would look up at Tim, his white spotted arms were folded as he saw Tim's expression. "She didn't bite you did she? Please let me make sure she's fine and then we can tend to it." The nurse Leonardo was sure it wasn't a bite as this was more of a excuse to get the man away, clearly something had happened.
Leonardo would had moved around his guildmate to look into the room, a sudden look of urgency plain on his face as he darted around looking for the redhead.
"Ok! She couldn't have gone far, her magic signature is still around here. If I'm not back in five minutes crack the lacrima near her desk. Hopefully we don't have to. God damn it the first time I'm left alone!" He would had hurried away ignoring any words, dead set on finding his missing patient. The only patient in the wing currently.
After the foot steps had faded Reina would had reverted from her form of a pillow in a cloud of white smoke, her face now more somber. "I, I want down." If Tim had allowed her to float down her feet would had been shaky, so much so that she would had propped herself up with the nearby dresser, settling into a nearby chair with a long sigh. Taking deep breaths, it was clear whatever strength had possessed her had left the slayer. "Tim..." She would had began, her eyes focused on the mess in front of her, shards of the bowel mixed with the red soup. "...I would think the same thing if this was all you had to see of a dragon."
"oo bormah frolaaz zey, Zu'u paak hi voth enook su'um!(1)" she would had lamented, the growl not intended for anyone in the room.
OOC: (1) Oh father forgive me, I shame you with every breath!
