PostSubject: A Quiet Reprieve    Fri Jan 27, 2017 2:53 am

Sirius quietly entered the nature preserve wearing his normal civilian attire. The army uniforms were too restricting at least for his normal standards. He sat on a nearby bench and heaved a sigh of relief. His next assignment wasn't for some time, so he had decided to relax in the preserve to calm his nerves. The wind blew through the trees and Sirius closed his eyes as his hair ruffled. It almost reminded him of the old days with his parents. His hand clenched involuntarily at the stray thought. He would find his parents and leave this life behind. He allowed the singing birds to relax him again. No was not the time for thinking about the past, he has to be ready for his next assignment.

Natsumi wandered through the preserve and looked around, taking in the colors and looks of it all as compared to where she is from. "This is so pretty." She then walked over to a bench and sat down, her illusion around her making her look human except for her left arm which is metallic and held a crossbow built into it. Her arm was making a bit of whirring and clicking, and every now and then would vent some steam from her shoulder slightly.

A soft whiring sounds coming from beside him caused Sirius to open his eyes. A girl had sat down on the bench beside him and upon closer examination it seemed her arm was the causing the commotion. It seemed mechanical and to Sirius' surprise, it seemed to have crossbow built into it. He had seen stranger things on the battlefield and knew not to question such items. Still, his job was to poke and pry into dark corners of people's secrets. He decided to assess her first to see if he needed to investigate the character before him.

"Good afternoon, are you enjoying the nature preserve?" he asked giving the girl a smile in greeting.

She blinked a bit surprised having not noticed the person on the bench next to her at first. "Oh. I am yes, I've never seen a place that looks so beautiful and green." She looked around a bit as if taking everything in. "I didn't notice you earlier, I'm sorry if my arm made any noise and distracted you or anything of the like."

She had disturbed his meditation, but she had apologized so Sirius decided to forgive her. It is not like she meant any harm. Besides this gave him a golden opportunity to ask questions.

"I was meditating, but it's all right. I can't expect to have the park to myself," He laughed. "I was quite surprised when I found out it was your arm making noise however." He tilted his head and frown appearing. "It seems to be mechanical, but I have never heard of a mechanical arm being attached to a person."

"Oh? I had this since at least age 4..always upgrading it though to keep it so it fits my height. I lost my arm back then, and a person built this arm for me." She was kicking her legs back and forth while thinking about that time however she slowly stopped and looked down "However...he died." She said this in a very somber and solemn voice as if trying not to think about that anymore.

"I'm sorry to hear that, my condolences." It was rare for Sirius to care for another, but he was still human. He did feel sorry for a person's loss of a loved one especially thought death. He had lost his parents but he still had a chance to find them. Death was a permanent barrier between humans. That of the living and the dead. He decided to leave the arm for now. Digging too deep would only upset the girl more.

"What brings you to the fine city of Niarja?" He asked changing topics. Hopefully it would clear her mind of her past struggles.

She shook her head a bit and then looked at him. "I wish to help fight against the demons. They are the reason that man is dead and I want to help protect people so that atrocities like that can never happen again."

Sirius frowned unsure if her had heard correctly.

"The human army is already fighting the demons on the front lines. The one in the cities are mostly woman and children. That or men that had other duties to attend to. If you truly wanted to help fight off the demon assault shouldn't you be at the front lines with the rest of the fighters?" he questioned. It was certainly not a age or gender issue. He had been accepted at a younger age than her and there were plenty of woman serving. What could be holding her back?

She then looked up at the sky. "I...am not sure if I'm ready to fight though, nor do I know where to go to sign up or anything of the like." Turning her attention back to him. "It's not that I'm afraid for myself, I'm afraid of what will happen if I start fighting."

....afraid what would happened to if she started to fight? Sirius suppressed a shiver. It sounded eerily like his demon mode. If he lost control he would tear his targets apart regardless of his own well being or that of his comrades. Was she a demon? While she looked human, it could be faked either by spell or disguise. She had a mechanical arm though, and Sirius doubted that demons had the technology for such things. In fact a person had built the arm for her. Would a human willingly help a demon? Sirius internally sighed. HE had helped a demon a few days ago. Still jumping to conclusions were foolhardy.

"Why are you afraid to fight? What would happen?" He asked curiously.

"If I start fighting, I can some times get very vicious." She said this very bluntly before standing up. "I also worry if I start fighting I'll be found since I'm hiding from some dangerous people. I...don't want them to find me and then start hurting others for me just having been around them."

The data was there but scattered and Sirius had trouble putting together the shattered pieces. She could get vicious while fighting. Not exactly demon exclusive (he had seen men go ballistic just as much as demons) but definitely a possibility.

Next, she was hiding. From dangerous people apparently and it raised some questions. If she was hiding from humans she certainly wouldn't come to the second most populated city of mankind. This men that demons were after her...but why?

"Who are you?" Sirius asked aloud, but realized his mistake. The question sounded accusatory thus he quickly covered his question. "I don't believe I got your name?"

"Oh. I forgot to Introduce myself, how rude of me." She bowed slightly showing off a bit of her regality "My name is Natsumi. I can't give out my last name as of right now, since as I said I'm hiding from some dangerous people."

Sirius frowned but accepted her answer with a nod. "Nice to meet you Natsumi, my name is Sirius." He briefly wondered whether or not to ask if she was a demon. In the end he banished the thought. She probably wouldn't admit to it if he asked and it could potentially end in a fight. He may be a soldier but demons were known fro their strength. He couldn't take the risk. Instead he went with a safer option.

"These...dangerous people. They wouldn't happen to be demons would they?" She probably would not answer truthfully, but all he needed was to watch her reaction. It would tell him all he needed.

She took a step back a bit before nodding slightly. "Y...yes..." She seemed a bit nervous now and kept taking a few steps back. "I...don't want to talk about them right now. They're just awful."

Sirius mentally clicked his tongue. Pressuring her would be counter intuitive. She would run away or worse snap. On the flip side he would be unable to extract information. He sighed, she didn't seem dangerous, even with that wicked looking arm. She was also against the demons, so he supposed he could set aside his 'Interrogation' for now.

"I'm sorry for prying." He apologized. "I am just the type that likes to know what is happening in the world."

"Was...it that obvious that I'm hiding from demons?" She kicked at the ground a bit before sitting on the bench again.

"You said you were hiding from dangerous individuals." Sirius began. "One could deduce that if you were hiding from humans, you would not be visiting the second largest human city." He reasoned. "There is also the point that you dislike demons and are trying to help aid the humans in fighting them. I don't see you trying to recruit humans if you were also hiding from them. Thus I assumed that your dangerous individuals were demons seeing as you are fighting against them." Sirius concluded.

"I...see." She then looked at him again. "Do you dislike demons, because I know some aren't as bad as people say, but...most are."

Sirius didn't know how to answer. If the girl beside him was a demon like he suspected then he could answer that he did not hate them. If she was a human, then he should answer like any human and say that he wanted to kill them. Truthfully he didn't care, all he wanted to was to find his mother and father. he doubted that it was the answer she was looking for. After a moment of thought, he decided to take a chance. It was not too risky and the pay off would be quite high.

"I don't particularly dislike demons. " He answered. In a instant, his hair changed to white and his eyes glowed red. "I am half demon myself, so I know not all demons are that bad."

She blinked and looked at him. "So some demons care about humans?" She seemed to say this as if acting surprised but failed a bit so it sounded fake or as if she knew already about the caring about humans. For a split second the illusion around her flickered and anyone paying attention hard enough would have been able to see her cat ears and tail before the image returned. She seemed to be breathing a bit heavily now as if under stress. "I...need to go for now." She said as she stood up making her way to the east heading in a bit of a fast walk towards the exit.

The flicker was fast but it was there. It had been an illusion the whole time and Sirius had almost bought it. Sirius rose quickly shutting done his demonic mode and rushed after her. She had looked depressed and if she snapped it would spell trouble for everyone. Thankfully the park was empty at the time.

"Wait!" he called out and grabbed her arm effectively stopping her. "You have an illusion up! What are you?"

She stopped and turned looking at him. "I...." She sighed and lowered her illusion taking a breath now as she seemed to be less tired now that it was gone. "I'm a demon. But...I want to help people, I'm still hiding from some demons and I am in danger if I'm found."

Sirius released his grasp on her. He didn't know her past, but she was playing a dangerous games.

"How do you plan on helping the human forces if you need to hide from the demon army?" He questioned. "They could have spies in the cities and trying to track you down. Hell, I am half demon and you didn't even know it. What in the world would you do if I was a spy for the demon side?"
