This was it. Perhaps the moment Cyrus had been awaiting for so very, very long. He had sought allies, he had sought power. But not a single thing he had grasped for was even comparable to what was now within his reach. He had found a woman that could give him...everything. A gateway to the future he so desperately sought.
But all things would come in their time. For all he knew, she would simply deny him what he asked, and it frankly would not surprise him. Still, he hoped- yes, genuinely hoped, a feeling he could not remember holding within his heart in uncountable years- that she would hear his request, that she would understand his heart. If she did, the whole world would be within his grasp.
So it was that Cyrus took a step into the famed caves on the isle of Monte Cristo. It seemed so incredibly poetic that he find her here, though he could not quite place why. He had never read the novel which took its name from this place, so for all he knew, he was simply grasping at straws in his excitement for this moment. Excitement? Yes, excitement, certainly. Creating a small orb of his own energy for light, the Quincy called out, curious if she would even respond.
"Shirohime. I come to ask your aid."
