Aska laughed softly, the chuckle a whispery, very feminine yet subtle thing. "I know many that dance when no one is looking. I was trained to dance for the eye, though. Would you like to learn how to play the shamisan, little one? Perhaps how to dance with fans? I sing, as well. I rarely get the chance to do this so often, now." She said quietly as they grew near to their destination.

She slowly took them down, and settled upon the Earth. The light cleared away, revealing a good sized cottage in the middle of the woods. Already, the smell of woodsmoke was on the air, and smoke plumed from the chimney. It was a charming thing. The outside is very well kempt, and shows signs that there are many things that will feed a large variety of the forest creature populace.

Aska leads the girl into her home, and the first thing to assail the senses is the smell of the herbs that hung about the cottage. Many were drying, but all of them gave a distinct scent. To a nose more accustomed to the city, it is confusing, cacaphonous. But to a nose that enjoyed the natural, it was heavenly. The cottage both looks and smells earthy.

"I wished on the seven sisters. Bring to me wisdom of age. All that's locked within the book of secrets. I longed for the knowledge of the sage...So the sisters smiled to themselves, and they whispered as they shown. And it was from that very instant, I knew I would never be alone."

"It's true. We're all a little insane. But it's so clear, now that I am unchained. Fear is only in our minds, taking over all the time...You poor, sweet, innocent thing, dry your eyes, and testify. You know you live to break me. Don't deny, sweet sacrifice."

"You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be. Oh, so many ways for me to show you how your savior has abandoned you...Still you pray, never stray, never taste of the fruit, and you never thought to question why. It's not like you killed someone. Not like you drove a hateful spear into his side. Praise the one who left you broken down and paralyzed. He did it all for you."

"When you scream, it sounds like a lullaby. When you beg, I get all gooey inside. Tonight, I take your eyes, mind and tongue to spread the word and watch your kingdom come... Once upon a time, I ripped the wings from my spine. But when I hide inside your eyes, I still pretend that I can fly. Tell me every secret, so you can fall in love, then fall to pieces. I need new voices in my head..I need new lovers in my bed to feed my secret appetites. I need your scent all over me. I need to taste this tragedy. I need to know with certainty that the nectar was worth the squeeze. It's just the way that we're deceived. It's the blame that stains us. This, this sweetest disease is so contagious."
