"I can't say I'm surprised. They were close to Azure too. Small world."
Saisei knew this, of course. He knew that whoever he interacted with that new the old man would have known one another. It seemed, as far as his memories were concerned, Azure kept close company with everyone. Close knit, figured it was in the man's nature. Wouldn't have found himself in good company if there wasn't a reason for it after all.
He shrugged, leaning away from the girl, keeping his gaze locked solid. Her words felt harsh, even if they came from a place of genuine curiosity. It was never nice talking about the little things in your head. Clearing his throat, Saisei nodded and gave his forehead a bit of a poke.
"Even if i wanted to give you permission I figured I'd have to answer them. It always ends up that, believe it or not. I still have a lot I could learn about Azure Iramasha, I won't deny that. When it comes to those little voices, however. Well..." He paused, rubbing his hand against his chin and thinking. How to put it... With a snap and a smirk, Saisei elaborated for Yuel. "I can guarantee they don't effect me on a spiritual level. I can also guarantee that, contrary to popular belief, it seems that things that effect the soul don't tend to go away with a do-over. He calls himself Husk. He doesn't like me, haven't heard his voice in awhile. I figure he's still around though. Hard to believe he'd pass with age."
Whether or not Azure spoke of his time dealing with his own spiritual anomaly before death, Saisei figured it was understood by his closest friends and family that Husk was but a shard of his own making. Cracking away at his soul left him fractured, spiritually empty. He assumed it was rare given Saisei had never met another with the condition.
"Did he ever talk to you about it? Doesn't seem very pleasant if I had to imagine. Sort of like having a piece of you that you thought couldn't exist take over your entire life. Unnerving, really."
It didn't take a genius to notice Yuel's disposition. Not that she was hiding it, of course. All he could do was make note and do his best to not make her uncomfortable. To do what Azure would ask of him. He continued his incessant stare nonetheless.
