Unlike either of the other attendants to this ceremony, the small priestess was not bowed as he arrived. Instead, she waited until his footsteps had borne him forth to the freshened air. She swept a deep and graceful curtsy, bowing her head much in the way he'd seen her do before now. She stood straight to hear his words, her lips pursing. "Your nose is very sensitive, my lord. I had not realized it would be so. Let me fix this for you." A wave of her hand sent the entropic energies swirling for only a handful of seconds, before they winged away the scent of the blood and death that lingered from the sacrifices. It was the same thing she did every time she did such a ritual, but it came directly before she left, typically. Bodies, remaining fluids and all other evidence that had stained the stone crimson were gone, much like the carrion they had been.

"Sacrifice was necessary for your rebirth. It is done, and you are once more whole and here. It has been a good night." She stripped the black robe from her form, taking with it any of the possibility that the scent lingered upon her. It vanished with a gesture as she stepped toward the lord daintily. She remained out of his direct sphere of personal space, her hands folded in front of her. "My lord, please meet my little sister. The dragon of flame I spoke to you about. Homura, remain kneeling, and address my lord the way I have taught you." For now, the boy was ignored. It was yet another test, a test of his wisdom and humility.

"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."
