Calypso looked surprised, eyes wide as Kokuto didn't seem too willing to let go of the subject, not as much as she wanted to at least. She looked genuinely sad to hear him ask such a question,"What? No, I think you're pretty smart!"
Her gaze lowered as she knew plenty well what he was referring to, but she didn't want him thinking thats how she thought of him. Her gaze was uncertain, gently flinching when he pressed on with the subject. She felt uncomfortable - To her, this was cleared ground she wasn't interested in retreading, it was dealt with, what was the point in continuing to bring it up?
"I mean, I dunno, i'm pretty done with it. I dealt with everything already, everything's fine and normal... Like nothing happened.."
She took the rabbit as she spoke, staring at it as she heard Kokuto's advice to speak to the rabbit rather than him about it."..I mean, this really doesn't need to be brought up.."
Calypso stared at the stuffed rabbit's adorable plush face, rolling her eyes as she felt almost guilted to go along, "..Fine, i'll humor you. You're lucky you're cute."
Closing her eyes, holding the soft toy in two hands, she took a deep breath in, picturing herself in a comforting setting, before breathing slowly out,"Algos suddenly called me to see her. She was upset at me... I was being a bit naughty with Ulv during a visit.. She could see and feel everything I did, so she.. Was disgusted with me. I.. I understand what she did was wrong, but.. I can understand why she did it.. And, I feel really bad for doing that to her."
Her face was scrunched up with shame, holding the bunny firmly as she continued, "It wasn't right of me to betray her trust and peace of mind like that.. So... Anyway, she was... Real mad. Furious.. I felt scared, but really guilty... She beat me up a bit.. But, I could handle it, I could take the punishment..."
The demonic royal began to tremble, her body visibly shook as she continued to speak of what happened, her face turning a weary smile as her eyes were kept shut, trying to maintain the comfort of imagination, "I was a fool, to let Ulv touch me like that.. I just thoughtlessly got her into trouble, for what? Some stupid fun? Ugh.. She, she wanted to take it out on Ulv, but I begged her to just do it to me instead.."
Her heartbeat escalated in speed as she felt a throbbing pain in her chest, her breathing becoming labored and fast as her hand rose to her chest. Silver tears beaded in her eyes as she stuttered and stumbled on her words to continue, "..So.. Then... Then... She.. Stabbed into my chest.. And... T-tore... Aaa-aaahhh..."
She clutched her chest tightly, she couldn't pretend anymore. She set the rabbit to the side as she pulled apart her illusionary clothing, to feel at her bare chest. It hurt so badly, she swore she could feel Algos' hand stabbed deep into her chest to forcibly tear apart Resolve Flame, though any proper look at her chest would reveal that there was a large, black scar over her heart's area, a white pulsating glow present at the center as it formed as if it were a typical scar of the flesh."..W-why.. Does my chest hurt so much..? K-Kokuto..? Kokuto did I do something wrong..?"
She looked up at him, eyes round and full of tears as she looked genuinely pained and terrified of the idea.
