The Liberated Flame

It was difficult to see, at first, much, if any, change in Hiroi after she had closed her eyes to focus; seemingly so focused, that she had started to ignore Kimi and Kagutsuchi's presence entirely. It was a good sign of sorts. At the very least, Hiroi was focusing like Kagutsuchi had suggested. However, Kimitsuki only continued to watch Hiroi. She wished to make sure that Hiroi would be okay in the end; that she wouldn't fall over from exhaustion, maybe accidentally hurt something, or anything of that sort. However, Kimitsuki simply watched and waited. Eventually, there was quite an interesting change of sorts.
It appeared that Hiroi was able to grasp some of her energy, because Kimitsuki could now feel, and actually quite acutely smell, which was new, Hiroi's energy. Indeed perhaps it felt weak, but every being started out like so; weak. It was only natural. However, soon enough, Hiroi's hair rose of it's own accord and morphed into something that looked quite a bit like snakes. Kimitsuki blinked in surprise, but soon smiled at the shifting that Hiroi had done; changing her hair into snakes, by the looks of it. Quite topical, given how Hiroi herself was. It caused Kimi to nod in approval before she noticed the shifting stop almost as suddenly as it had started; and a wobbling Hiroi spoke of nothing but trouble.
Kimitsuki dashed forward as Kagutsuchi instinctively flew off Hiroi's neck; also wanting to let Kimitsuki do this instead of him. In seconds, before Hiroi could fall on the ground, Kimitsuki had caught Hiroi in her gentle embrace; gingerly easing Hiroi to lay down a little bit, her back up against Kimi's shoulder and arm. She smiled at the woman as she did her best to regulate the temperature of her body so Hiroi wouldn't get too warm; adjusting Hiroi so she could lay comfortably in the Danva of Fire's gentle embrace. Luckily, Hiroi only seemed exhausted; nothing too terribly serious. Hopefully."Still with me, Hiroi? Looks like you were quite successful at manipulating your energy. Turning your hair into snakes is certainly an interesting start, and a great one... How are you feeling?"
