Enter The Adapting Doll
Do not be afraid, wandering gypsy
After speaking, Shisome returned to her silence. She disliked speaking in such long times, but her passive red gaze was perhaps drawing; one figured that the doll like girl held some sort of draw to people. There was a sort of energy that always made people want to take her away; why? Shisome had no idea; was it her powers, her very being? It was an incomplete analysis; she held no idea as to why her entire person was desirable. Shisome also knew that many held some sort of fear; but there was something else that became inherent to the girl. And that was, simply, the fact that she held nobody in close regard. She was a person of distance; none had found the refuge inside of her heart, but many had come close. And yet, she lived for no one but her own sake. That was a dangerous line; she could gain everything, and yet gain nothing. She was free and away from others; there was no binds to tie her down. And yet, she herself had bound her very being, chained it to her solitary existence; a path that she walked only of her own will, and never following the wills of others. That's why she had left her caretaker; and that's why she had left Moonie to wander elsewhere. The thirst of knowledge, the ever present curiosity was the very reason Shisome left the nests that many gave to her. She was held by nothing; by none, and least of all, by the mentality of others. That's why she was dangerous.
She was just as likely to abandon you then take you in and heal you. She had no qualms in what she had to do, if it was for her sake. It was an inherant selfishness that was perhaps not really selfishness, but an understanding of how she was placed in the world. The girl before her seemed to be intrigued, having made several noises and words that could be identified with thought and interest. To Shisome? After elaborating so much of her powers, her connections, and even more so her placements, she would easily draw the next conclusion. In fact, the girl expected it; it was like if someone had revealed they held control over nuclear powers, back before these powers were wide spread. People would crowd, kidnap, take, and curry favour; it was all on their personaliyt. Shisome wasn't sure, but to her theory, considering how little the girl spoke, it was that this other, this demon, thought a lot of the same lines as Shisome. Therefore, she would not try to curry favour; knowing that she was related to Mana meant that this was a powerful being, and thus could just take by force what was needed. That was more then likely what would happen next, according to her theory; to take her and bring her to her sister, mother, daughter; whatever was their relationship, Shisome would be brought forth to the Queen of Demons.
That was the logical conclusion, since Shisome was literally a secret weapon; how did no one realize this, was almost beyond her. Did they not know what a powerful weapon she could be, during this war? Or did just no one knew the full extent of her powers, to say the least. The blade of the other moved through the air; Shisome knew that she would not die, for there was no killing intent. When the blade stopped near her throat, the girl simply moved her head, and then stood. Dusting off her skirt, she looked very human for that single moment; but yet.. she had returned to a doll like state, her red eyes looking like glass jewels. ''I assume that I will be taken with you, yes?''
she said simply, not even afraid. Perhaps this person could kill with the change of mentality, but as of this moment, her loyalty was to mana. Demons were, in mythology, rumoured to be tricksters, and fickle of alliance. However, that also proved how much it was of a testament to Mana's very own power, that the demonic Queen still ruled over her people. Shisome was perhaps ignorant of some details, of course, but since her encounter with these beings.. she to begin research on her powers. And she found that her powers were completely unique; that was perhaps the worrisome thing about this situation. There was no one like her, absolutely, that ever chanced to be, in this entire world that was kept in the books and internet.
That was perhaps why she figured she was precious. Her neutrality; the very fact she held no fear towards good and evil; the very fabric of things she could unravel. Just who was she, to hold such power? This bothered the girl, but she had to keep her emotions soothed; she had lost control once or twice, and both times had gotten pretty dangerous. There was no excuses for losing herself to the overwhelming strength inside of her. ''Most would have said I have spoken to much.. it is very tiring to speak very much. But I shall go along with whatever you wish to do with me, if only by the virtue that you are yourself, and not a puppet.''
she spoke frankly, cleanly. But she didn't want to speak more, so she left it at that; what was the use of speaking entirely too much, and then find herself with a dry throat? She knew she would adapt to the demon world; there was no issue with that, as the girl simply undid the scarf at her throat, before beginning to remake it. More or less to compensate for what was going to happen next, perhaps. But that was not really the worry either; Shisome was logically trying to sound out the meeting with the Demon Queen. However, she had no information other then general rumours to fall back on; so the girl could not simulate a meeting easily.
That was worrying to her, considering that it made her a wild factor.. so she would have to be ready to use whatever skills she has at her disposal to escape or counter an attack should one arise. That was in itself the problem; she would become exhausted very quickly, and thus that might harm her.. but Shisome held some faith. Perhaps this Dragon Slayer would not let the girl die so easily. Or perhaps it was wrong to call it faith; perhaps part of the girl felt.. linked? To this woman. If only she could access her family's history.. there had been a suspicion that demons had been involved in her family before. Well, those suspicions were simply that; and as such? The girl would just have to observe and analyze the next few events in order to determine the future. After all, there was no future set in stone, as time itself was ever changing, flowing towards new paths. Each choice was a new future; the possibilities were endless. Meeting Okabe Rintarou had provided that to her mind, as she knew she would possibly see minor distortions in a story line if she concentrated hard enough. But that was not a power to be used lightly; it was harmful to her mind to use such powers so freely. She just had to be careful.. then again, everything in her life called for caution, and she met them with the unbreakable wall of her mind. She didn't even question the other girl about why the sudden change. Many would have; and Shisome was just not one of them. She had already known. So all that was left.. was to continue the events that had been set in motion with this meeting, and to see what lay in the end of this path.
