It was frustrating that the male didn’t respond, if only she had fire powers instead she could’ve tried to warm him, but unfortunately it was not so. Aleila also tried to get male’s attention, Na’hina however turned to Baridi noticing the sadness in the other’s voice; so much sorrow just cause people didn’t understand. “It is only a curse, if you view it as such.” The blind girl offered a weak smile trying to comfort the former queen. “Use your powers to achieve good deeds, and you’ll find it’s no longer the curse you once thought.” She added quietly, indeed the only way to banish fear and ignorance was to show who you really were.
Indeed Na’hina was speaking in part from personal experience; her own powers’ capabilities were quite frightening, even to herself the ability to control the souls of the dead, summoning and commanding demons, possessing corpses… it was not the kind of powers most people would consider a force of good. Being Death incarnate did not garner any acclaim. “I know what it’s like to be shunned and hunted.” She spoke quietly, her tail giving a soft flicker.
“I’ve paid for their ignorance.” She whispered ears splaying backwards, the white lioness were almost tempted to remove the blindfold and show just what ignorance and fear had done to her but she decided she would spare them of the gruesome sight. Her eyes were lost because even in her own pride a people that should know better, there were voices driven by fear and ignorance which decreed what was right and wrong.
"He who fights with monsters,
should look to it that he himself
does not become a monster.
When you gaze long into the abyss,
the abyss also gazes into you."
Dye's mind buzzed. The feeling wasnt foreign though, he was used to feinting even though he neverwanted it. Bad circulation was a pain. Even through the sound of the blizzard, through the soft, angelic voice that slowely faded and through the white noise in his mind he could still see her face, the blonde haired girl he fell in love with years ago. The images of her, lying beside him in the weltering heat or the freezing cold, them lying with one another in the trees. Then inevitably the image of those lions...no those things. Them coming in the middle of the night as they slept, luckily away from their pride. Then, running, but their chasers gaining. The white noise grew, louder, the images, more vivid, the noise, louder again, the inages, almost real, the noise, the images, noise, images, noise, images... "Focus on one perticular thing" Her scream as they hurt her and him being forced to watch with no way of helping. Dye's green eyes snapped open and he panted heavily, the colours going berzerk around him. Blues and greens flashed on and off in the small cabin and Dye simply started to cry.
Life is short,
Break the rules,
Never regret anything that made you smile
And don't forget,
It's okay to be imperfect,
The moon has craters,
And look how bright it shines,
Even in the darkest of times.
Aleila's eyes filled up as she felt the pain from the lion and saw the strange things he was thinking. it pained her to see on person think about something so vividly, normally they only remember faces or sounds, she could not make out what it was he was thinking of only the sharp edge of vividness sticking out from the stream of images and sounds but this lion was different..
Aleila's eyes snapped open as she heard the panting from the lion. "Breathe... Calm..." Aleila may not be any nurse but she knew how to fix broken emotions. As the male lion cried Aleila bent down beside him and whispered happy things from the zipping images to try remind him of the better parts of his former life. "Don't dwell on the bad parts, only relish in the good." Aleils tried her best to pass her good aura on him.
Aleila looked up at the two lionesses as she straightened and looked longing, "He needs to be happy..." Aleila never fully understood the fact of how others hurt the same kind so badly and why they don't reunite as one, but there were still a great many of things Aleila didn't quite understand about this world, only that she was now a small fragment of it. She tried to think franticly about how and what people get cheered up by, but the sobs and endless train of thoughts and images from everywhere filled her mind and she was unable to think of anything. Aleila simply looked upon the lion and gazed deep into his green eyes, become enveloped in his endless pains and emotions and memories still lingering within his eyes. In a way they reminded her of her glade, but at the same time they didn't they were... different, somehow...
