The Liberated Flame
Artist: JubyPhonic - Song: WILDFIRE!! (Cover)
Truly, it was quite amazing how Hiroi put away food again and again; turning large meals into nothing but horderves. However, she seemed to be quite orderly about all this. The plates were clean, stacked neatly; and there was not even a speck of food on Hiroi's face. In fact, she looked just about as clean as she had after Kimi had cleaned that blood off her face. In fact, it really did look like she hadn't eaten any food at all. Truly, Hiroi was at least a master of eating without making herself look like a complete slob; at least with a cooked meal. Kimitsuki had a vague feeling that made up a significant difference between when Hiroi was attacking prey and just eating food. Either way, the demon simply shut that thought away and continued to finish off her meal.
By the time Kimi was done, Hiroi seemed to be just about finished as well; stopping enough talk once more. And her focus... oddly enough it seemed eating more than most beings could put away in one night had at least brought her mind into a more focused state; enough that she seemed to give Kimi far more of her attention. Of course, Kimi had her attention on Hiroi as well. Again, an endearing woman, but, her current attention seemed to warrant a bit more attention from Kimitsuki as well.
However, what caused Kimitsuki to blink in surprise was how she woke up in a forest. In fact, that was where Kimitsuki had woken up after her time being "born" in Nidhana; a forest. In fact, she had woken up in the middle of a forest fire. Quite an apt place for a Danava of Fire to be born; with her only companion Kagutsuchi. The one who raised her afterwards; her eternal partner. However, she tore herself away from such thoughts and resumed paying attention to Hiroi. Something seemed to be troubling her after she spoke about waking up in that forest. She wasn't exactly the best at discerning emotions, since Kimitsuki can sustain herself via fire instead of some other methods like other demons do; being able to sense emotions is not her forte. However, just some part of her felt that Hiroi just wasn't doing well.
Whatever it was, those thoughts were once more pushed away as Hiroi asked Kimi a question; shaking her from her wonder of why Hiroi could possibly not be doing well. But, with those thoughts filed away for a different time, Kimitsuki smiled at Hiroi."Well, I live here. At least, I started to live here a few years ago. A friend of mine, Hayden, he encouraged me to join Vastime; and I'm glad I did. It's nice to see what they are doing; trying to help mankind and all that. Meanwhile, I don't mind helping those who are in need of help; I quite like to do it after all. But, yeah, I'm mostly here because of Hayden and because I live here; and also because I want to try and help people see that not all demons are bad. After all, the two of us aren't bad; and I want more people to see that. So demons like us, who do not want to hurt other beings and are not evil; that they deserve a place on this earth too. Ya know? Not all demons are quite so nice, sadly..."
Kimi let out a soft sigh, getting down for a few moments before a waiter came and dropped by a few candies for them to eat. Kimitsuki waved at the waiter, thanking the person for the service and the food; tipping the waiter generously. Then, Kimitsuki looked at Hiroi, and pushed the candy towards her and grinned."Hope you still have some room for some candy~"
