( WOW LOOK, I did a thing! now it's a little neater lol almost. hmm.
I think I want to keep trying to make this look "prettier", >.> but I'm really stubborn. lol ^^; )
*After Janus ruffled her hair, the lupine goddess looked up at him with a subtle curiosity in her eyes - his apology, she figured, wasn't needed and she
knew she had to say something about it, even if she was taken aback by his sudden kiss.* No... please don't apologize. There's nothing to be sorry about,
anyway! I really do love being loved... *she smiled gently,* I've just never been in a relationship... like this. It's kind of new to me - although the idea
was nice, I always avoided such romance, or at least to my knowledge I have. But I'd never turn down a sweet gesture like a hug or a kiss! So don't
you dare apologize! *she threw her arms around him and squeezed with all her might, which ironically could have been the equivalent to a large bear, even
despite her petite frame.*
*Eventually, she released him from her clutches and said,* Oh, it's not? Hmph... well, go ahead.
*The wolf focused on the gems as Janus consecutively explained all of their purposes and linked emotions, each of which were familiar to the goddess. Soon after
he listed off the final gem, she spoke up,* They're all very pretty - but, um, we won't use the topaz, or diamond, or... *she paused, thinking for a moment,* ...that
sapphire one, right? I don't really like feeling sad or scared, and I'd rather not dig up old memories... *she cringed slightly, then brushed a few strands of hair away
from her face before continuing,* Hah, besides, it's love and happiness that rids the world of evil! After all, that jerk Orochi was defeated because of Susano's
undying love for Kushinada! ... ...But, um, anyway... you have a pretty nice collection here. I like it.
*She nuzzled his cheek and then gave him a much softer hug than the one before.*
( sorry if it's a bit hard to read xD just blame my headache. )
Hmph... I suppose I should believe you, then. *She sighed.*
So, your beast-like oni statue here is actually a beast-like oni statue made out of love? ...How sweet.
Well, that shouldn't be too hard, *the goddess turned to Janus with a faint smile; he was easy to love, and as long as
she thought of him (or bellyrubs, or cherry cakes...) she figured it'd be fairly easy to control the monstrous amethyst knight -
but the wolf was easily taken by surprise when Janus grabbed her and kissed her, although she probably should have
Blushing, she whimpered,* Um y-yeah, that should help, heh! Quite a bit, actually...
*she hid her face in his shirt.* I think... oh, shouldn't I be used to that happening by now?
Heh, how'd you know I like bellyrubs? ... ...Hm. Okay - I'll trust you, then. Somewhat.
*She watched him carefully while holding a thin, teal slip of paper that could be used against enemies - just in case her mischievous boyfriend was
plotting against her. A shield could be created from the paper, and it would not only deflect an attack, but would also cause some sort of backlash
against the attacker.
The intriguing little dance Janus did tickled the wolf slightly, and she smiled as he and the monstrous knight mimicked each other perfectly. She wagged
her tail in delight and softly clapped her hands once he finished his oddly adorable dance with the knight; however, she paused and stared for a moment
when he held the gem out for her to take - the wolf was easily wary of the situation, but was still willing to try it out. After all, she couldn't wuss out now and
scamper away like a scared little puppy - oh no, she was still a goddess with some dignity! ...With extra protection, of course.*
...Alright. I'll give it a try - but um, you'll tell me what to say or do, yeah? And no little tricks of yours?
*As she watched him with mild interest, she stayed still and listened quietly without speaking a word - at least until that
monstrous amethyst behemoth was summoned. Not only did she feel her life was in danger with that thing, but so was
her remaining dignity! Terrified and ashamed, her fur stood on edge and she nervously moved to hide behind Janus,
whimpering,* Alright, I'm just gonna sit here and watch. Uhh, yeah - don't mind me... heh.
*She smirked,* I know!
...Oh, right - we. Yeah, of course I remember... how could I forget an incident so humiliating? Aw, please don't remind me...
*Rubbing the back of her head, the wolf rolled her eyes and sighed. The thought of their first meeting made her cringe, as it was truly
embarrassing for her and left her with little dignity afterwards. She glanced at the gem, then stared at Janus for a moment, figuring that
he was very lucky he was so lovable and cute.* Hm, alright, I see - that makes sense. So, how are we going to use them, then?
*She glared at Janus, appearing completely annoyed with him and somewhat suspicious at his comment, but she decided to ignore it -
for now, at least. Slowly, the goddess approached him and sighed as her ears fell back. She carefully peeked into the box and nodded,*
Hm, nice. So, her huge - *she jabbed her elbow into his side,* arsenal of gems, huh? Well, ain't this just peachy? Anyway, uh, you gonna
use these or something?
The fact that you assumed I was jealous?
*She snarled,* Seriously, where did you get that idea!? If I was, trust me, you'd know! *Crossing her arms, she turned away
from him and whimpered quietly. She was sure she hadn't said anything in such a way that implied envy, but she knew males
were typically silly creatures to begin with. After glancing at him, she continued in a hushed voice,* Sheesh... ah well, if you
thought that was jealousy, I'd really hate to see your reaction when I truly am jealous...
*With her fur standing on end, she growled at him,* It's not jealousy! What makes you say that!?
*The wolf huffed and she was angrily twitching her tail, but she quieted down and continued listening, following him into the kitchen.*
Thank you, it took quite a while to obtain them! *She smiled and cheerfully wagged her tail.*
Well I don't doubt that, *The wolf hopped off the bed and followed after Janus,* Uh, roaring twenties... United States?
I'm not sure I understand what all those are. *She tilted her head,* Sorry - I'm a little bit slow here... but I'm listening!
