Kalian pants and mumbles a good riddance when Bael leaves. Turning to face River, Kalian bows a little. "Thank you for all your help...." With that Kalian stands up straight and marches off to Cascata's home.
This is the song that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend. Some people started singing it not knowing what it was and they'll continue singing it forever just because. *repeat for eternity*
River is tired, he never thought he would encounter a demon and live to tell about it. He is proud of his little entourage, now happier then ever that he brought them along. He was disconcerted that Bel came back though, if something went wrong... he didn't even want to think of it. He allowed Kalian to see Cascata privately now, after such an event the man deserved that much.
"Gale, thank the forces I chose to let you come along. I must compliment you on you're training. A kick that had a celestial being have to check his eternal pants. I am proud to see what the future has in store for Humontis. I will make sure you are fully commended for you're actions."
He then turns to Bel, his expression suddenly sober. He took a couple deep breaths. He wasn't mad at her, but he wasn't happy with her either. He dosn't want to be rough with her, not in public. He simply leans down and whispers to her in a calm voice.
"Would you mind talking to me later when things calm down?" In a moment he straightens and becomes his perky self again though, something that is easy for him to achieve after the demon's fall. He speaks in a voice that nearby people could here, "Now who is that kind ice elemental that I need to give my personal thanks to?"
Granted the timing could barely have been worse, Saber's voice faintly enters River's mind, ~River? Are you well? I've heard that there have been strange things happening all over and I've been getting worried about you...~
River smiles at Artica, he dosn't mind having made the mistake, he is just grateful for her presence. He gives her a light pat on the shoulder, not worrying whether or not such an action would be appreciated.
"Sorry for the mistake, I only noticed the ice in the heat of battle. Either way I thank you, and my supporters at Humontis thank you."
He then goes back to Bel and offers his arm again, they should move on, standing around here wouldn't solve much of anything. He still wants to talk to Cascata about his findings as well.
"Thank you Bel, I'm not angry I promise."
He was just worried, it was then that he heard the voice in his head.
Hello Saber, I am fine. Just sent a minon of Hell back to where he came from so I am feeling better then I was before.
