Artist: KAIRI - Song: Adrift in the Leaves
Ahh… There it was, Fuu really was relaxing now… Frankly speaking, Arianda was a little surprised at how much she was relaxing. She was taking everything Ari was doing with a sense of great need for the affection. This bit did trouble Ari slightly… However, Arianda didn’t pump the brakes. No, she simply slammed the gas, resuming her petting and her loving motherly embrace as she held Fuu dearly; her hands starting to carefully pet and explore Fuu’s ears with gentle fingers. Ari may not be her mother, but it was certain that Arianda had guessed correctly that the cat girl would love pets.
As their embrace endured, and Arianda poured on the affection to a deeper level intent to not take advantage of Fuu; but to help assure her that the affection was genuine, even if her mental state wasn’t the best at the moment. With a gentle nuzzle against Fuu, Arianda hummed still as she noticed the woman relax into Ari to a much greater level than before; newfound tears flowing down her cheeks as she finally heard the voices of her Zanpakuto. If they were aware of everything, they likely had a few things to say about the weird demon girl that was Amphillogiai that took tender care of the swords while Fuu’s heart and mind were closed off. Meanwhile, Arianda smiled gently as she gently pressed her forehead against Fuu’s, establishing a gentle mental link between the two as her soft works, smooth as silk and sweeter than candy, broke free from her lips.“You were not blind, Fuu; only lost. But you have been found, and they cry out for your wellbeing; just as I do.”
Arianda smiled as, over their gentle mental link, Arianda fed a small image into Fuu; Arianda’s appearance over all, and a few other things. This mostly encompassed the scenery Ari guessed Fuu could not see; but in the end it all came back to Arianda as Fuu would see Arianda giving Fuu a beautifully warm smile before the images faded gently and Arianda’s hand rose to stroke Fuu’s cheek; wiping away her tears with a gentle air. All the while, Arianda hummed without a tune to follow, but attempted to create a rather comforting composition as she stroked Fuu’s cheek one more time before fully wrapping the woman in her embrace; once more holding her like a mother would. She was not a replacement… But more like an adoptive mother who loved Fuu very much~
Eventually, as Fuu explained why she had come here to Mount Olympus, Arianda smiled softly and carefully pet Fuu’s head; taking a few moments to deliver gentle, but thorough, pets to Fuu’s sensitive ears. After a tiny bit of silence from the demon, Arianda smiled softly and couldn’t help but chuckle a tiny bit as she saw Amphy’s face; something between irritation for the foolish humans of Ancient Greece and amusement at how easily tricked they were. Soon, however, the demon broke that silence in a proper manner, depositing a kiss to Fuu’s forehead like it was all just a natural part of this motherly embrace.“Ah I see… Well, I am glad you did not cast yourself off the ledge, Fuu. I would have saved you, but I’m glad I could talk you down from that particular edge; and help you find that path of redemption. And, especially, to give you someone to grow stronger with~ You’ll do excellently. But, we should spend a bit of time getting to know each other, and letting you rest. Until then, though, let us enjoy our time upon this mountain, with you safe in my arms~ I think I know a tale or two about ancient Greece if you’d like to hear it~”
Truly, Arianda’s meaning was to be safe within a mother’s arms, but that was fine if Fuu didn’t completely understand. She simply gave the woman one more peck on the forehead like it was just part of this embrace. Afterwards, Arianda rested her head upon Fuu’s head, gently treating the woman’s ears to a positively pleasant ear-rub and pet the entire time she relaxed with the woman held in her cuddle~
