She waited for the younger to come to her, as pecking order demanded. Her hand was held out to the girl, her lavender eyes fastened upon her and they searched the eyes of her protégée. It was unlike the petite priestess to be effusive in praise, but the smile she gave spoke volumes that her mouth wouldn't. "Welcome to the world, little dark one. May it be a new and fascinating journey for you to walk beside me." Her hand squeezed the darkfire dragon's own. And then something strange happened.

It started as an ache somewhere in the vicinity of her heart. Slowly, that feeling radiated out from that fragile little organ, until blood beat in her temples harshly. Homura's heart felt, for all the world, as if it were shattering. Or that something inside her was breaking down, becoming weak and then dissolving. In a flash of feeling, something lifted, and she could feel a slight connection to Ren. Feel where his betrayal and disregard for her had eroded that link, frayed it to something fragile and breakable. She became aware of exactly what harm he'd done, and how much her older sister had tried to heal within her. And found that he was a wound that couldn't be healed by Aska's hand.

The darkfire portion of her balked at being hurt in such a way, anger boiling up in her heart and figuratively setting fire to those last tremulous tendrils of connection. It burned to ash, and the backlash stole the girl's breath, making her stumble and causing the priestess to catch at her in order to keep her upright. The physical contact caused another, stronger bond to come forward, woven tightly by trust fostered, and a teacher and student bond. A guiding older sister, confidant and mentor. It silvered the threads of this one, and created the link that the dragon had only ever known to Ren. But in her mind, Ren was gone. Lost to his own stupidity and because of his own blind foolishness.

"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."

As the daughter of dark flame took the hand she smiled reading into what her onee-san's smile told her.  As the ache started in her heart, her free hand clenched over it softly.  She could feel the darkfire in her veins attack the strands that remained until they broke.  Stumbling and being caught by the priestess, and the new bond settling over her, her breathing steadied.

Eyes of blood found her new master, mentor, sister.  The darkfire boiling away in her veins bubbled through her.  The pain and fragility surrounding her heart at that instant replaced by a feeling of strenth and ease.  The trust, the strength, the power, all played to the dragon's true nature.  She smiled at her sister, "I am honored to walk beside you.  I hope to see the world for what it is, to learn from it and to grow in it in my true form."

Sensing a disturbance (in the force. Lol! xD) in his priestess, the lord tossed  a questioning glance in the direction of the 2 women. Seeing their embrace and confirming their safety, the lord blinks raising an eyebrow at them, but goes back to "examining" the device. Now finished with it's meal, the dark mist drifted into the shadows leaving the area pristine as though naught had occurred.

If Tatsuya was still there, Kazuma would notice him and blink wondering why he had yet to be introduced to him. If not, he would simply bide his time, waiting until Aska and Homura finished their business that they might begin his own.

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.

Tatsuya's eyes were low, but the boy did as he was told to. His mind was racing, trying to figure out why he was here. This all seemed...weird. Why was he here? Why him? But, he pushed the thoughts to the back of his head. Slowly, he stood up, dusting the snow off of his robe as he did so.

"My name is Tatsuya." The boy said, twirling his keyblade in his hand.

The young dragon softly followed her sister and master to the lords side.  As she heard Aska's voice in her mind she gave a subtle nod.  A slight smile crept across her lips.  While something in that destructive nature of hers wanted to tear the boy apart if he was disrespectful, but she would abide by the wishes of her master.  She would not let him escape.  The feeling of the strength and clarity the priestess bestowed, left the dragon ready to do whatever she needed to do.  As the boy introduced himself, she kept those eyes of blood on him.
