Arctica made his way into the hallways of his castle, lost in his thoughts over what to do. Lately tensions in his lands had risen more-so then usual. Unrest was all too common, and even the many warriors in his castle were under the impression of the "End-Times" so to speak. The Death of Klaus Demore, the man with the strongest influence in all of Hell, had effectively created a divide among the many Lords, and even Sonetara, the current Devil herself, and Klaus' daughter, was at...a loss for sanity. Something that given with the current situation, was disastrous.
He grumbles as he rubs his forehead, politics were never his forte'. He despised politics, always preferring to do things simply, hence why he lived in such harsh, but distant lands.
As he walked however, he could hear silent sobs, tilting his head curiously, he made his way towards the entrance door, his eyes widening once he spotted his ward, Blood. He had taken her in long ago for the treatment she received from her mother, Sonetara. She had been scarred countless times, and there were times he wondered if she would be alright. Yet seeing her like this, tugged at his frozen heart.
He made his way over to her silently, his armor clinking against the ground with every step, before he would kneel in front of hr now, she didn't seem to notice he was there, so he softly let his hand rest atop her head as gently as he could, running his fingers through her hair softly.
"...." He said nothing, nor did she, she slowly looked up to him, tears soaking her golden eyes as she gazed into his own glimmering golden eyes. She then had no hesitation, she simply pushed into him, hugging him tightly in her arms, sobbing and crying against his chest. Arctica's eyes widened faintly, but he didn't push her away. Instead, he wrapped his arms gently around her, gently stroking along her back as softly as he possibly can, rocking her within his arms gently and protectively, letting her get out all of her pain, all of her sorrow, wanting to take away all of her pain if possible.
So there they stayed, for several hours, the world was gone to them, they only had each other there in their arms...forever.
