[X] Have her show you.
You consider the choices she offered you. More importantly, the offered choices and the unoffered choices.
Show or tell.
But nothing about waiting or thinking.
There was the worrying smile directed at you. Some might deem it sultry. Others might call it teasing. But there was the hint of danger there. Absolute danger.
The gentle curve of soft peach hued lips, to you, spoke of mischief. But not malicious mischief, just one that was more amused. As if she knew something you didn't.
With her face hanging directly over yours, a veil of white hair concealed the world around you and gave a certain intimacy in your conversation. The warmth of her body was one shared by the bed and the blanket that covered the two of you.
That scent of sakura petals hung heavy in the air. Or rather the scent that you had associated with her. With Saver, no... Sakura.
You had to restrain your body to prevent it from acting on the urges from the sensations imposed upon you. It has been a very long time since anyone had this kind of an intimate moment with you.
While she could tell you, it wouldn't be the same as being shown. In much the same manner that various mysteries had to be experienced to gain an understanding of, you suspect that you would need to be shown to gain any true appreciation of what it was that had been done to you.
"Why don't you show me?" There was a patient air in your voice. It wasn't just because you had to flood your body with prana to keep it from reacting to the nearness of the very female body of Sakura.
That smile didn't slip from her face as you made your request. Rather, there was a slight nod as she pushed her body away from yours much like that of a push up.
With her arms by your sides, you were trapped. As it were.
"Very well, Kariya-ojiisan," there was a giggle.
And it felt as if you were lying upon a cold mirror, or perhaps a block of ice. Which was when there might might a sense of foreboding, just the slightest one, before you catch sight of something dark rising around the two of you...
And you were pushed.
Water that wasn't water.
Darkness, and yet you could see. You could sense.
The only problem was that you couldn't hear. The countless voices of the dead Matou and Zolgen were... silenced. And in that silence, you were once more alone within your mind and body.
Floating above you and between you and that slowly fading pane of light in the distance was Sakura. You could feel things twisted and moving against your body.
The primal urge from your lower brain to fight, to run, to do something rose... you could feel the disconnect from where you were and where you are.
This wasn't real.
This was wrong.
It was dark, infinitely dark. And yet, it was more than just dark. Darkness implied an absence of light, that light existed somewhere. Here, there was instead negative light. Here, light didn't just not exist, it never was, never could be, never would be.
To ease the primordial parts of your brain, you close your eyes and heard the racing beats of your heart. And alongside it, a soft lullaby.
Soft warm hands encircled your body.
Warm femaleness pressed against your body, and you found your head resting against generous female bountiful talent. Soft curves, warmth and tenderness.
Slowly, your heart calmed itself.
There was nothing to fear.
There was only the here and now. A oneness.
Your body relaxed. Yes, that was it. You could rest.
And you found yourself simply letting everything go. A soft voice sand wordlessly to you, asking you to trust it.
Your body reacted... differently, and yet... you felt it was natural. How could you resist your instincts? Why would you stop it? How could you stop it?
There was no mana here to channel.
Your od simply flowed in accordance to your body's needs and not to the demands of your mind.
Thus, there was no prana to be used. There was no mysteries here. Only oneness.
The needs of your body was fulfilled with warm wetness enfolding around it. While soft arms encircled you and yours around a female form.
Needs, wants, everything was met here in the eternal depths of the shadows.
Eventually, your eyes opened to meet another pair of crimson eyes.
Amusement and satisfaction could be found here. "This is my world. This is where I slumbered after saving the world. A world that wasn't a world. A dream within a dream."
You had to think about what she meant. "A reality marble?"
She really wasn't human, was she? After all, no human could create a reality marble. It required a mindset that wasn't human, that was alien to the world.
"No... but it is... close to one. This is the darkness that consumed the world, the darkness that was created in conjunction between my element of Imaginary Numbers, the matou mysteries, and that which lies within the Greater Grail," she spun above you, or was that in front of you, with arms stretched wide. "This, all of this, is the realm of quantum flux. The foam of infinite possibilities outside the normal space-time of Gaia's reality. Or you could call it my cursed boundary layer."
By focusing on the immaculate ivory figure of Sakura alone, you find yourself able to endure the shadows. Despite this, you could feel your psyche strain under the attempt to make sense of what you were perceiving.
"Do you want to stay here?" She spun once more to stand next to you, or perhaps float above you. "Or do you want to go back?"
There was the hint of a giggle in her voice, a hardness there that hinted the wrong answer might not be a pleasent thing and might require multiple command seals to escape.
