Inami allowed her to finish talking, so it was common courtesy for her to allow her relative to finish as well, even if she did take some issue with how she interpreted the younger creature's words. Her head was tipped down after speaking her embarrassment, though her head rose once more, "I only use 'human' or 'people' because it's a LOT shorter than 'Being possessing a mind and emotions and being worthy of respect and compassion', even if I don't like necessarily comparing things to one species. Everyone's their own individual, regardless of hierarchy level,"
She narrowed her eyes, "The one thing we all have in common is a will, no matter how weak it is, no matter where you place on the social or time ladders. That's what I believe."
Cali seemed a wee bit alarmed when Inami wrapped a hand around her waist, soon feeling her fingers running through her dark locks. It was a surprising position to be thrusted into, considering the woman's rather neutral and uncaring demeanor throughout their whole interaction. She was sensing her emotions throughout this whole ordeal, and she had noticed some sort of difference, but there was just no putting words to it, she simply couldn't describe it. She still felt light, detached, and airy, but it was different."Show me wh-AAA!"
She let out a bit of a startled yell as reality around them warped, and they were no longer standing in the throne room, rather, hanging high over a mass of red, at least, that's what the panicked mind of Cali could make out, til she could relax, though she was blushing immensely as she wrapped her arms around her aunt. Okay, yeah, obviously she wasn't as freaked out, but she didn't want to entertain the thought of falling, especially since she couldn't fly on her own.
Her golden eyes were wide as she saw her breath before her as she panted, shivering from the cold winds of... However far up they were. She stared down at the clouds, who carried the light of the world upon them with a crimson glow, floating aimlessly and carefree. She could just barely make out the land, mostly obscured by the fluffy, color filled clouds. The girl was in awe, as she slowly looked up into the void of nothingness that hung above them, with an equal sense of mesmerized wonder.
And then, she heard Inami's question, as they floated between everything and nothing, of how she felt when she stared upon their kind's birthplace. Her eyes filled themselves with the sight once more, taking a good minute to think, before opening her mouth,
"Well, at first I felt amazement,"
She began, though her eyes narrowed with a sense of sadness, "Though I remember, what lies within it's trees of beauty; Suffering. Death. Discord... I can't call this place my home, though. I don't belong... Anywhere, it feels like."
Golden tears beaded in her amber moon eyes, floating seamlessly as everchanging blobs of gold sweetness, "...I'm hardly an Asthavon, even if I possess the name, an aberration to my kind, a monster or soon to be for everyone of other realms, or just hollow food. I just don't belong anywhere, not yet. But... I want to at least gain the power to alleviate this realm's suffering.. I want to help it be pretty on the inside, too, with smiles."
