He only had two words for her reaction: absolutely precious. Vanyel grinned wide as she watched her open mouth, his eyes warm as they gazed at her. A place in the Demon World -- a home for them. Things felt...right, things felt good. For the first time in a long while, he felt...content. Having the one he loved close to him, finally admitting that he loved her, and now being able to live with her. It had been a long time since he had ever felt so content with his life, and it felt...nice.
However, his grin quickly went away at the mention of having children, replaced by a deep shade of red as now it was his turn for his mouth to drop open. "Uhhhhhh..."
But, as Calypso laughed, admitting it was a joke and gave him a light push, his smile returned, and he breathed a deep sigh of relief. He looked at her, resting against his chest, gently running his fingers through her hair. The thought of having children, having a family with Calypso, was...
Dismissing the thoughts before they could even fully begin, he shook his head lightly, his arms wrapping tighter around Calypso and keeping her close to him. There was no way someone like him could ever be a father. It was already a miracle and a half that everything had happened the way it did -- it almost didn't feel real. Part of him was scared that this would all be a dream, and he'd wake up...and be alone again.
As his arms around her grew tighter and tighter, the human continued to tell himself that it was real and that it wasn't a dream. It made him want to say it again -- say that he loved her -- to kiss her, to continue holding onto her. He had loved every single moment of that kiss and missed it just as much when it ended. The demonic influence that had its grip on him for so many years, now digging its claws into his deepest feelings of sentiments and love, taking those emotions to new, overwhelming extremes, and old ones bubbling back to the surface, threatening to drag him back down into that pit of anxiety.
