Mika listened to every word intently.  "Well I think this place is beautiful." she said leaning her head on his shoulder.  "I would like to visit it more often, if that's alright of course."  Her eyes darted down quickly, she certainly would never want to intrude if this was special for him.  Her eyes rose and locked on his,  "I'm glad I can give you warmth."

Her eyes softened even more when he explained his role as a knight.  "I didn't mean to be surprised by the fact that you watch over me.  In fact it brings me great comfort.  I would not ask you to cease, It would make me sad not to have you near me."  She sighed into him.  "I guess I just still have trouble making myself see that people could care enough for me to want to be there for me."  She let her feelings out, she had always felt worthless before coming to the school.  The fact that people saw her as something special or worth protecting still was foreign to her.  How could she be special? She had always been unwanted, or so she thought.  Now she knew what she was, and people still wanted her to be happy.  How could this broken monster be worth looking after?  To be honest with herself that was the question she would most fear to ask aloud.  She wrestled with it constantly, not that she'd willingly admit it.

Thinking about what he did with his time she smiled.  She could see him watching over her as a guardian angel, and she could see him learning about the world.   She looked him in the eyes, "So tell me are there things that you particularly like about the world, things that captivate your interests?"  She just wanted to learn more about him.  She wanted to know him better, to be able to know what made him happy.

As if he knew her doubts and fears, he only ruffled her hair, kissing her forehead. "I don't waste my time by protecting and caring for someone unworthy." He left his words there.

His eyes squinted. "What do I find captivating here in this world? The dreamers. The artists. Not their creations, but the creators themselves. Those who let their minds and imaginations free. No doubt, no hesitation. To watch them look at the world, and see through a different sight. To watch them bring that vision to others. It's extraordinary."

He went quiet for a moment. "For much the same reason, children are delights. But I must be careful. When they no longer believe in imaginary friends, but still see me, it can scare them. But that window of time is short."

At Hunters words to her inner most worries Mika felt relieved.  It was like a weight has lifted off her shoulders.  He could always put her worrying mind to ease so swiftly.  She let herself relax into him as he told her of what interested him.

She listened intently as he painted the picture for her.  She could see why such a thing would captivate him.  Being able to see the world through the eyes of a dreamer was a beautiful thing.  She smiled as he talked about children as well.   "I can see you playing with children." she said with a soft smile.  "Its almost a shame when they stop believing in Imaginary friends."  She thought of her own Imaginary friend, although she had turned out to exist.  She locked her eyes on his, "You see the world so differently than I do.  I think I like your view better than the one my mind tends to portray.  You see the light, the beauty, it makes me happy to hear how you see it."  She said this seriously, she knew she had a tendency to see the dark before the light.  Hunter was always able to make her see more of the light.

He lifted one of his shoulders in a slight shrug. "I must look for light, because otherwise, my world is colorless and dull. The land of the dead is not a happy place, little angel. The dead remember what it is to walk as the living. To feel an embrace, the wind or the sun. But we cannot feel it the way that you do. We only have memory, now." He wasn't telling her something. It was a something that made his face darken.

He shook his head slightly, as if to clear the thought away. It was certainly not a happy thing lodged in his mind. He turned his questions elsewhere in distraction for himself. "If Lady Death were to call on you again, would you journey into the Underworld, still?" He asked.

Mika had watched his face the whole time he was speaking.  She sighed into him when he finished his first thought.  She certainly hadn't meant for him to have to talk about anything painful.  She felt guilty for having brought it up.  She knew he was hiding something, but she wouldn't make him say it.

She took his change of subject and went with it, keeping away from the previous thoughts.  She thought for but a moment before answering, "If I were called on again, I would make the journey.  If there is someone that I care about that I could save by making that journey.  Of course I would go." she said seriously.  She had been ready to go the last time, her resolve hadn't faltered since.  She looked him in the eyes, watching them for his response.

His head leaned back against the tree, eyes closing as he gave a deep sigh. "And if this visit would take you there for me, would that change your feelings? If you might need to pay a price to help me, would it still be worth it, sweet angel? If the price was steep, would you regret helping me?" He asked, his green eyes opening and settling piercingly on hers.

He seems to relax his arms from around her, preparing for if she'd want to move. He's anticipating her wanting to pace or move in some sort of fashion.

She didn't stand to pace but she did sit up slightly.  She tucked a lock of hair behind her ear, her own eyes staring back into his.  The possibilities of his though danced through her mind.  She bit her lower lip softly in thought, she needed to collect her thoughts.  It was a few moments before she spoke.

"Hunter." she paused lingering on his name.  "You are one of the most important people in my life.  I would walk to the underworld for you.  If I could do something to help you then I would gladly do it.  I know that dealings with the underworld do not come cheap  but whatever the price would be I can't imagine regretting it."  She took his hand and squeezed it lightly.  "You are very dear to me, you know that.  I would want nothing more than to help you."

For the first time since he'd found out about the presence of Shinji, Hunter touched her in a more affectionate manner than he'd dared since. He cupped her face lightly in both of his palms, touching his lips to hers lightly. It remained light, fleeting, gentle.

His hands quickly fell from her face, his lips from hers, as well. He lowered his eyes, whispering his apologies to her softly. "I'm sorry. I should not have done that. Please forgive me, sweet angel." He said, as he waited for her to be angry at him for taking such a liberty. And putting her in such an awkward place. "I know you love him, and not me, little angel. I will not do such a thing again."

Mika had been taken by surprise at his action.  The kiss was so delicate, so soft.  Her heart had skipped a beat when she felt his hands holding her face, his lips on hers.  She watched him apologize unable to react for a moment, she was still caught in the feel of his lips.  She knew why he apologized, but part of her didn't want him too.  Yes she loved Shinji, and he loved her with all his heart.  However that didn't mean that she she was becoming more and more aware of her feelings for Hunter.  Denying them would be lying to herself.  His comfort, his warmth, his caring for her was something that had made itself deep inside her.

"Hunter." She whispered, placing a finger softly under his chin, raising his eyes to hers.  Down cast eyes were not fitting for him.  Her own eyes locked on his.  Her fingers traces softly over his cheeks, savoring the feel of them.  Her finger gently traced across the lips that had just found hers.  "I am not angry, please don't apologize." she said softly.  She may have been confused, not because of his action, but by her feelings.  However she could never be angry with him.  She moved closer to him resting her head gently on his chest.  Her body sighed into his.  "You're little angel could never be mad at you." she said squeezing his hand gently.

He looked carefully at her, as if sussing out the truth of what she said and meant, and slowly, his mouth curved into a smile. He kissed her fingertips as they brushed his lips.

He cradled her closer to him, his cheek to hers, turning his nose into her hair, her neck. Part of it was to have her scent in his nose, and the other was to hide exactly how much what he'd read in her face had affected him. He whispered to her, voice very low. "The little queen is good to her knight."

Mika sighed lightly as he kissed her fingertip.  Content she collapsed into how he held her.  He always held her so gently.  She reached her hand up and ran it gently through his hair.  She turned her face to him a bit more nuzzling her cheek against his.  She would gladly stay just like this as long as he wanted.  Time seemed to stand still when they were together, and she cherished every moment.  "Of course I am good to my knight.  The little queen wants him to be happy always, he is important too her."  She said with a soft smile.   "Possibly more important than he realizes."  She whispered softly barely audible.

His hair is thick, full. The black strands are like unrefined silk. Still soft, but not so slickly smooth. He feels alive, and Mika knows that he's doing this for her.

His sharp ears catch her whisper, his arms tightening very briefly around her, whether in reaction or out of purpose. His hand lifted, threading it's way into her hair gently. He moved his lips slightly, brushing over her neck for only seconds, leaving Mika wondering if it was purposeful.

"Be careful what you tell me, sweet angel. My control is admirable, but you'd best not let hope bloom where it shouldn't. You speak of something that dreams are made of for your lowly knight. But you were never made to be fair and fickle Guinevere." His voice is low, soft, sweet, and holds a note of gentle warning. But longing comes through clearly, as well.

Mika smiled as she felt how alive he felt and she sighed deeply.  As his hands traced through her hair her head moved into the touch almost like a cat.  She puzzled for a moment about his responses but doesn't ask him about it, deciding just to enjoy the moment.

His words catch her ears.  Her eyes drop for a moment.  She felt guilty at the words.  She certainly wasn't intentionally trying to be fickle or lead anyone on.  She bit her lower lip in thought while she twisted a lock of hair around her fingers.  Her emotions were all jumbled, and they swam around her head in a frenzy.  She knew she didn't want to hurt either Hunter or Shinji.

A few long moments later she realized how long she had been quiet.  She looked up at Hunter again a slightly confused and apologetic look in her eyes.  "I'm sorry I didn't mean to get lost in my thoughts.  I have a bad habit of doing that."  She wrung her hands lightly together.

His hand caught at her smaller ones, stilling their restless movements. "You never need apologize for thinking your thoughts or going quiet, little angel. I prize your mind nearly as much as your spirit." He told her mildly, hand nudging to line her palm up to his.

He whispered kisses over her face lightly. "Knowing you is why I gave you that warning. You would never seek to hurt either your king or I on purpose. As I said, you are no Guinevere. But I know what I feel for you. And I know that those things you say will go straight to my heart and head. I am determined to remain as I am at your side, no matter my own dreams or desires. Only your happiness matters, in this."

Mika smiled softly at his first words.  "I will try to not apologize for such things, I jus know that some worry extensively when I retreat into my thoughts for too long." She said softly helping line their palms up.

At his second statement a quiet knowing look flickers across her face.  She leaned her head on his shoulder.  "You're right, I would never want to hurt either of you."  She would be devistated if she cause one of them pain.  She almost let herself question again why her happiness was so important, but she knew what Hunter would say.  Beings of darkness didn't always deserve to be happy though.  She let those thoughts quickly slip from her mind as she turned her attention back to Hunter.  She could feel her palms against his and the whispering kisses and she smiled again.
