i was called to come here by someone, but i don't know who. did something bad happen?
╱╱ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀it's rook from twst u silly goose
how tedious.. we’ve been at this for an hour.
@omikamis i hope so, it would be rather amusing to think she hadn’t realized my displeasure. * a hand would be placed underneath her own chin, a hum drawn from her lips. * but you’re so beautiful, i can’t help myself.
@draecons i think she is most likely aware of that already by the way you express yourself everytime she is near. [ the serpent would tease before her brows furrowed at the god. ] it’s kind of concerning how much you stare sometimes
i care very little for them, my eyes are only on you.
how amusing. you’re a strange one, you know?
@omikamis ☠︎ even so, with someone who just rose from the dead i would implore that you at least have a good nights rest. * ryoko whispered, eyes fluttering close as she felt more than content by just being by orobashi’s side. * yes, how very gracious of me? very good-willed.
@draecons the people of watatsumi are not the same as those from liyue. there’s easily thousands of differences between the two. I’m proud of how they have done so far, but I still have much to do. [ he would place a hand over ryoko’s as he explained. a slight scoff, disguised as a laugh, would leave their lips at the gods pride in her ability to gamble. ] yes well, I’m very glad you have the ability to swindle people out of their savings
@omikamis ☠︎ your people are fine, they can easily handle themselves. just as liyue has lost their archon, they’ve adapted to such loss. * ryoko muses, a smile forming as a hand would settle on orobashi’s arm, * someone has to rest, hm? and even with my little cave of gamblers, they’re all handling themselves quite fine. in fact they might be glad i’m gone, since i’m so good at the game.
how laughable, was that supposed to work?
@omikamis ☠︎ no need to rush it then, perhaps it just needs time. it’s been quite awhile after all. * ryoko would respond, a smile forming as she’d run her fingers through his hair. *
@draecons It shouldn’t be, only a handful of people traverse here. it should be exactly as it was before I left. [ the serpent’s mouth twisted into a frown. ]
the shogun doesn’t know what she’s doing. i suppose that’s what grief does to you.
@omikamis ☠︎ it would be a lie if i said it didn’t. you know me, i love to hold a grudge. * ryoko smiled, her eyes narrowing ever so slightly. *
@draecons not necessarily a madman, just someone driven to do what they thought was best. [ orobashi would inquire, turning her gaze into ryoko. ] does that anger still eat at you?
don’t stand in my way, orobashi.
@omikamis * her eyes would narrow, the wager between giving in or letting go weighed heavily on her hands and her mind was troubled. did she want to appease her own anger or to allow it to subside in order to no longer strain, or further stress the relationship the two of them already have. * i’ll never understand you.. * she shook her head, hand finally sliding away from her sword to which the weapon returned back to her side. * i’ll leave it for now, for your sake. * the god sighed, looking away as crimson eyes would settle back to a murky grey. *
@draecons making amends? are you really that short sighted to believe that that’s what I am doing? [ orobashi’s jaw tightens, and her hand reaches for her own weapon. he holds ryoko’s stare until the god turns her attention to the sky. at the absence of her gaze, the serpent’s expression softens and a frown emerges. ] I do not, and I will never, make amends with celestia. but you do not understand the things I have to do to ensure that what happened before does not happen again. and you doing this, is one of the things I can’t allow to happen.
@omikamis ☠︎ perhaps i hoped we would have sharing views for once. even when we first met our opinions and perspectives differed from one another. * ryoko answered, a smile forming on her lips followed by a tilt of her head. * so is this going to be your stance? to form amends with the very place that destroyed you, * sword sheathed, but she used her weapon to point at the place set in the sky with mild disgust and confusion. * i’m sorry — but i implore you, get out of my / path. / * anguished expression would look towards the serpent god, her chest constraining as perhaps her actions were only powered from which the anger and grief she felt all those years ago upon orobashi’s fall. *
would you like some tea? i just brewed some, lucky for you.
