The petite priestess knew precisely what had happened. She'd read about it in her many tomes. This had been her plan all along, and it was always good to see plans come to fruition. With a guiding arm around the darkfire dragon, she stepped forward lightly over the snow to rejoin her lord. She paused alongside him, the young dragoness still at her side. Her silvery lavender eyes looked up at him, and addressed him in old Latin. "The boy is the one your sister sent to aid us in unlocking your chains. He is the key wielder. He knew nothing of this purpose, but he has been helpful. I told him that I would speak for him to you in granting one request. He requests the ability to protect the one he cares for." Something vaguely sinister glimmered in her gaze, though her face remained still. "There is darkness to prune and help flourish." She said softly, a shapely brow arching just slightly in punctuation of the sentence.

Though her attention remained on Kazuma, her eyes turned to the boy, still rightly kneeling there in the snow. Her English rang out, musical and commanding at once. "Stand and introduce yourself to my lord, key wielder. Keep the utmost of respect, boy. You will not want to find what happens if you do not." Those mercurial eyes shifted back and forth between her deity and the youngster. Aska's voice whispered through Homura's mind. "If he is disrespectful or crass, do not let him escape. Do not kill him, but capture him instead." Her dainty hand laid on the girl's shoulder, bestowing strength and clarity upon her once more, as she had on the mountain.

"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."
