The Flame Of Hope
Artist: Carrotwine - Song: Dark Side Of The Road
Ulv listened to Abalia, and heard that she was exactly what Ulv had seen. An admittance from the girl that she had never felt like others feel. And only now was there sadness. A crack in the otherwise prim and orderly world. Ulv could do nothing to that world, for her Resolve Flame was keyed to diminishing negativity and increasing Hope. Neither of which properly existed within Abalia. But now, she had said that Ulv, had brought her sadness. A crack in the orderly nature of her world. A splinter from which she could finally reach into the girl. For her Devil's Heart was useless before, but now..?
"Might sound heartless, but welcome to emotions. It's good, you are feeling sad. Because sad is something. I don't know why you were so muted towards emotional response, but now there is something to work off. From a seed may grow a mighty oak" Ulv reached out and placed a hand on Abalia's head, focusing on her own power. "But I can not force this upon you. You have to accept it. You have to want to be able to enjoy the presence of a person, smile bright with warm emotion and not simply because it is expected of you. You have to want to sob from sadness, laugh from glee, and feel the warm flush of emotion from stimuli. This will hamper your effectiveness at duty. It will be messy and at times horrible. Nothing, is
easier than something, after all. But that is what you have to decide. Do you want to leave in exile, ostracised from everyone because you are too closed off, too Gray, too nothing. To do your duty well, and then die and be forgotten by most before your body is cold?"
