Kai, who had been ready to attack and was just about to, hopped out of the way. Noticing that Daray might be too close, she looked at Laevaetion. "He might die, he seems too close for comfort!" She said, running up to Laevaetion.

The Gelert's eyes widened slightly as he jumped to the side; the super-heated air caused the back of his cape to fray. He sighed, turning around to face Laevaetion. "The pain he is feeling now is nothing compared to the pain he made others feel," he muttered coldly. "Leave my matters be, Forsaken One, or this exorsism may turn out horribly."
"Mmhm..." Laevaetion said through her closed mouth towards Kai. "There is such thing called Karma." Laevaetion said, "You don't need to do anything. If something horrid was meant to happen, it will." The zafara pulled another explosive from her pocket. This one, however, didn't look normal. It was yellow and had odd engravings on it. Laevaetion tossed it up in the air. Swiftly pulling out a silver pistol, she aimmed at the explosive and shot it. Lightning bolts fell down from the sky in the gelert's direction.

The Gelert's mouth twisted into a rare grin. "Then perhaps I am Karma." He began to walk away casually, the book under his arm. He glanced over his shoulder and nodded. "I will return. It is inevitable. Be prepared." With that, he vanished deeper into the forest.
Daray's scar stopped glowing and his breathing steadied. His eyes soon began to flutter open. It was obvious he was ticked off. The Lupe had lost so much dignity tonight that it wasn't even a laughing matter. He swept up his cape and began to walk away, fur bristling.
"That coward." Laevaetion muttered as she watched the gelert leave. Laevaetion turned around as she put away the pistol into one of her pockets. Her glance shifted from Kai to Daray, wanting to know the same thing.

Daray sighed and turned around; there was a patch of flesh where the cross had burned away his fur. His voice hinted frustration. "I don' know," he said bitterly. "Physically, probably... but emotionally..." he turned back around and pulled his hood off. "I fear that canna ever be repaired."
Kai nodded. "I'm sorry about the pain that Gelert causes you. Just like when Blood tried to kill me. But he tried with physical contact. He already killed my family. I'm sorry, You don't know who Blood is." She nodded, and waved. "Don't go getting into trouble again, I might not be there. Even though I didn't help that much here... Oh well." She waved an started off. Stopping, she turned around. "I didn't get your names. I gave you my name, so It's only fair."
Laevaetion let out a sigh as she looked at the ground and loosly folded her arms. So much had been happening...how was she suposed to deal with it? "M'name's Laevaetion." She said to Kai, but still looked at the ground.
"Nice to meet you Laevaetion. And you? What is your name?" She nodded towards Daray. "Oh, nevermind. I'll find out someday." She waved her hand and walked off into the shadows. "See ya someday soon." Where her last words. To the two for then.

As Daray opened the door to the castle, he felt something tug at the hem of his cape. Hesitantly, he looked down to see what it was. A small, red-skinned imp was the verdict; a pair of horns poked from his forehead. Daray knew exactly what he had come for.
"You call THAT extra information?" Asked the imp, crossing his arms angrily. Daray shook his head and kneeled on one knee to talk to him. "Look Vertigo, I was desperate. But with these scars, I now see my wrongs. I'll report to Lucifer directly about my selfishness," he said to the imp. Vertigo's face twisted into something that resembled a smirk. "So how'd it go, anyway?" Daray sighed, rubbing his temples. "Horrible." The imp frowned. "Really now? What happened?" He inquired. Daray sat down, resting his chin on his hands. "First, the rose the was a disaster, then Dawnteh makes a fool out o' me, Laevaetion wants t' see the 'real me'; y'know, the 'me' off the battlefield? And I was almost exorcised," he muttered glumly. The imp laughed crazily. "She wanted to see the REAL you? Daray, you were MADE for battle!" Daray gave a weak, half-hearted smile. "She said she didn' think she knew me well enough..." The imp raised a brow. "A couple months and she doesn't know you? I'm sorry, Daray, but it looks like there's no hope for you."
Daray nodded to Vertigo and stood up. "Aye, I think yer right. I guess I'm ready to go back to hell then... my mission here is done..." Vertigo sighed, patting Daray's knee. "I'll take ya," he offered. Daray shook his head. "No. I have to say 'bye' to her," he sighed miserably, heading back into the woods.
Laevaetion sat praying style infront of the lake. She stared out with a blank expression. Her gaze shifted towards the water in which she saw her reflection. She dipped her finger in the water and watched her reflection and the water ripple. Her mind was clouded with thoughts, but almost empty at the same time since she couldn't concentrate on any of the thoughts.

"Er... Laevaetion...?" Daray stood behind Laevaetion, arms cross tightly. "He knows that I was using my mission as an excuse to be with ye... I'm gonna 'ave to go..." he explained slowly. He sat down beside her and rubbed his temples.
"I may never see ye again; chances are that I'll be demoted and locked up fer lyin' to the big man..." He said softly. "But ye made these past months worth my time. Thank ye, Laevaetion..." Listening to himself, he found he truly was going soft. But this wasn't the end of it. Not by a long shot. The Lupe stood up and spread his wings; crimson orbs of light escaped from his body and sunk into the ground. After about two seconds, a garden or roses began to form around the pond. "In case ye want more... they'll never die, Laevaetion. I... I hope it helps ye remember me. Even though... Even though..." He trailed off, feeling moisture gather on his cheeks. For an instant, he panicked, wondering what these were.
Daray blinked and took a step back, wiping the liquid off with his sleeve. Crying was for the weak... he couldn't let Laevaetion see him like this! Ashamed, he took another step back. "Laevaetion... I'm sorry... I'm so sorry... I love ye..."
((I was just listening to 'Suteki Da Ne?' while reading that and it made me start crying. ;~;))
Laevaetion's gaze turned to the roses around the pond. Her eyes scanned from left to right around the area. She took a deep breath and stood, dusting off her knees. She turned around and slowly approached Daray with her eyes to the ground but managing to know where she was going. She stopped as soon as she was a foot or two away, but eyes remained on the ground, "...Daray..." She hesitated, "Before you go...when that gelert attacked you...it made thoughts come to me like what would it be like if you were really gone. A-and..." She took a deep breath, "I just know that...it wouldn't feel right."
