The elect had sensed something, something that she had never thought she would ever feel again. Even now with her pace pushing herself to the point that shed was but a blur that was whipping through the tree’s she rapidly approached the point that she had felt it. That damnable aura that even to this day since his vanishing had caused her not only needless worry, but frustration and eventually almost a kind of hatred. She also didn’t know what this would mean for her people, even now her silver eyes shifted constantly from the darkest steel, to the lightest platinum. Not because of the lighting around her though, no it was because of her own state of self, yet in her mind’s eye she could picture him, and she could sense him, so through the very concept of her ability. The essence of imbedding and controlling reishi with thought. She constructed a mirror, one that focused on Ghislains location and her own. From there it was just a matter of passing through the barrier, causing it to shatter into shards of glass as she entered her next location. To ghislain it would be most likely perceived as shards of glass breaking into reality, the dull bloom of sapphire colored spirit energy barely dusting the 10 foot radius of the reishi made portal.
From that Niflheim would step forth, however it was a strange thing for her. Once this man was her only superior, the one who led her people in the right direction. And she had been the one who stood in his shadow. However now, well she didn’t know what to think of him. He had ran, instead of leading their people like he should have? He inexplicably vanished. He left the quincy in a state of crisis, at first she had just been stunned in the days that had followed his absence. Then she had felt hollow, sick , disgusted that he had left, but she had still locked it up deep inside, into the smallest crevice of her heart in which she held her lesser emotions, and let it fester there. Even as it ate at her she continued leading her people, because they are her top priority. They deserve to be led in the right direction by one who will throw everything away to save them, to cherish them, to give them hope. She knew this, which was why seeing him, a remnant of the past, caused something akin to annoyance in her. ”I’ve found you, Ghislain Eberheart. It’s taken me quite some time, but none the less.”
Her words would be in a tone far from the kind, honest, outgoing persona she had with her people, for they deserved her love. This man, had lost that, which was why the full weight of her gaze, ancient in respect to most quincy had no gleam to it. It was only hard and frozen, much like how niflheim truly used to be until she too had thawed. Her back was straight, and her hair had flecks of energy radiating around it. Each step she took was measured, her hair bouncing with her stride until she stood directly in front of the former emperor of the vandenreich. Thousands of questions whirled through the Elect’s head, however she wouldn’t ask them. Even after the intial shock, the disbelief of finding him, the inner turmoil that shook and raged against the very fiber of her being, all of it had faded away to be replaced by the single emotion she had felt the first few days after he had left. The frigid chill that saturated her very bones, and caused her to arch a brow as she said quite bluntly. ”..There better be a good explanation for this, especially because i find you deep in enemy territory.”
She crossed her arms now and tucked her hands into her armpits. Which probably wasn’t dignifying, but she did it for good reason. The urge to bring bodily harm to this man was so great that it was like OCD, it was a impulse that she wasn’t going to sate, but couldn’t entirely squash and put into the corner of her mind. So yes she stood there, and waited for a satisfactory response. For something that might even make what he did even the tiniest bit okay, since from her perspective. All the trust, the respect, the integrity that Ghislain had was no more, there was no single person in the world, that she distrusted at this point, more than the leader who abandoned his people. Yet, he too was a quincy, so she wouldn’t prosecute him on sight, instead she waited, and kept an open mind, even though in her opinion. It was much more than he deserved.
