A quick glance over his shoulder, though he wouldn’t really express his concern over talking animals anymore. Enough experience told him if they weren’t hostile, not to worry about it. “Ah… Yes, but what makes you say that?”
Ah, finally. Not having been greeted with the atypical response of surprise had put him in a rather talkative mood, and he took a seat beside this boy. “Just look at them. How often have you ever only seen one star in the sky at a time? Nary, I’d say.” The mythos that burned just as brightly as the stellar display yearned to be spoken by the beast, but he’d digress and enjoy the view for the time being.
“Don’t you dare." /growls
”… I think they’re lonely up there, all by themselves…" Oops, was he thinking aloud? Probably meant he should get more sleep, but the dealer would disregard the notion for now.
”Do you mean the stars?” He had been looking up as well, lone ochre hue reflecting the scant light offered by the night-clad heavens. “I think they have plenty of company.”
Sitting back on his haunches, the crimson warrior lazily watches the plethora of two-legged things making their nightly rounds. “—…”
"An idle mind…..Hmm.."
”… Is a dangerous thing. Are you alright, Tifa?”
“My apologies. I remember the scene you and your comrades made, certainly a crew you are." he mused, whilst a touch of mannerisms began to his rather off putting comment.
Textured intones of noted aggression to this beast’s quite deserved anger against towards the alabaster donned President. There is a bite in words, soon but a smirk relies itself unto his features. “But we all live and learn from our mistakes, hm?”
The serpentine way in which the President conducted himself sent a chill rushing down the length of the red beast’s spine. Cold, calculated, and most of all: collected, it seemed as if Rufus Shinra was never short of a cutting remark. “Tch… I should certainly hope so.” This man spoke of a ‘crew’, yet Nanaki found it odd to see the man without his entourage of suit-clad thugs.
“And if that’s not the case, then I suppose it’s never too late to teach someone a lesson.” His retort had been delivered along with a harsh stare, which had then been softened into a flat expression. “What’s the adage you humans like to use? About the old dog and it’s tricks?”
” Well, weren’t you that… self proclaimed research specimen? ”
He never did forget a face, especially this one.
“‘Self proclaimed’ is a poor way of putting it,” he growled, instantly recalling the history of this platinum-haired demon. All the while, Nanaki kept a fierce glare fixed upon him. “I would say self aware, self reliant, self controlled…”
There existed a spanning silence where vibrant claret merely held his. Leveling gaze was only broken as well-defined cranium tipped back an angle and to my left, a motion to will away reckless fall of raven mane from sanguine visage. “I was a killer.” Crimson form paused. “I am a killer.”
"Beauty may be appreciated. Withal, an embrace may be offered."
Vincent had always been an enigmatic creature—and his words only furthered Nanaki’s belief of such a trait holding truth. “We have all done things of a questionable nature,” he began in response; however, the crimson-cloaked man’s baritonal croon warranted a curious swivel of fur-covered ears and a slight tilt of his head.
"What is your idea of ‘beauty’?"
[ /leaves a note here. ] ❝— Nanaki, when you get back, we need to make milkshakes. I think you'll like my extra-special version! ❞ → meteorfallcetra
"Milkshakes…" The very thought of the frosty treat caused him to salivate. How could he possibly pass up such an offer; both for the sake of eating something tasty and spending time with his dear friend? “I have chosen the best time to return!”
The corner of his mouth curved up into a slight smirk at the wolf-lion beast’s words, and he gently shook his head with a soft chuckle. “You’re as modest as ever, I see.”
"Aye. Some things never change," he replied goodheartedly. "You seem well," he added considerately, lone amber hue carefully searching the man’s visage for that ever-apparent angst. Much to his surprise (and relief), there had been none. Either that, or he concealed it greatly. Either way, Nanaki was relieved to be in the presence of one of his most trusted companions. “I assume Tifa has been keeping you busy.”
