The struggle was very real for the seatroll, Kaslet was doing her best to keep it down, to swallow the trained seadweller inside her.There was a war raging inside of her between what she knew was right and what she had been told was right. Her eyes hit the others blood and she stared, her body no longer lulling against Kanashiis as peacefully. Mutant. The word rang through out the highbloods think pan. Her blood was a deep vivid red, almost like a rustbloods but not as dark. She had a mutant blood but it wasn’t like an alternians mutant blood that was bright in candy colors and hurt alternian eyes, causing alarm at the sight of it. Instead it was maybe a shade or two lighter, still a mutant but completely accepted because it was rarely noticed among their hemospectrum scale.
Slowly but surely the violetblood started to calm again, leaning against the feline. Maybe..It was just the normal blood for whatever Kanashii was, perhaps all creatures like her had it and it wasn’t a mutation among them endangering their species society and way of life.Mutants were dangerous and something to be feared and killed on sight when possible, Kaslet knew this. She knew it well, it was her job to exterminate such beings, they wracked her entire body with anger because they were just so..so..wrong . Like a computer error that causes a glitch in your screen. Anything remotely close to a mutant was suppose to be disposed of too.
Kaslet couldn’t hurt Kanashii though, the seatroll couldn’t even fathom the idea. Specially not after today, the deep instilling peace of being in the others arms rang down to her core so hard that it ached. She remembered this feeling from somewhere but just couldn’t places her thumb on it quite yet. So instead, she sat there and stared at the blood, softly purring against the other. Instead of killing the catgirl, instead the violetblood would do her best to never see the other bleed infront of her.She would protect her, to the best of her abilities.
The seatroll didn’t want to get up, she didn’t want to move away from the others larger, warmer frame, but she couldn’t just let the other sit there bleeding like that, she needed to have her hand wrapped. Far from a medical genius was Kass but she could understand how to at least wrap a wound. Taking a deep breath the violetbloods voice came out tired over all else. “Here let me get you some bandages for your hand.”
As silence spread itself trough the room, Kanashii felt like an eternity has passed. With how she managed to make herself and Kaslet so peaceful, she wished this eternity would repeat itself and that they could forget everything that surrounded them. She had experienced it before with her grandmother, but apparently she was too young back then. Now, this feeling gave such a stronger sensation of easiness that it made the hybrid wonder what happened. Her hand wasn’t even hurting. Certainly the seadweller would be filled with questions from her endless curiosity about other cultures and behaviors so hey, why not alien cultures as well?
The hybrid had a smile on her face, feeling the seadweller’s colder skin against her scarf, her chest and her fur. Opening her eyes as she spoke, Kanashii reluctantly unwrapped her arms, figuring out it might have turned into something uncomfortable for the other. Now that they’ve woken up from their wave of positivity, she managed to feel the pain on her hand, indeed. Even though it wasn’t a serious injury, just another cut to her scar-filled hand, the blood would keep going unless something is done about it.
A nod, and her body moved to give Kass some space as the cat girl looked down at her bleeding hand. “You don’t need to worry much, this is nothing serious.” She said, testing the pain as she moved her fingers and claws. “But I would like some bandages. If I keep bleeding, I won’t be able to transform back.” Her head lowered apologetically. “Also, I’m sorry for this mess. I just wished you didn’t have to go trough this and I thought this could be solved by force but… at least I’m here to make you forget about that, even if for just a little while.”
With that, the cat lifted her head again, showing a smile that showed genuine happiness and empathy, and she just hoped Kaslet would receive that happiness within her being.
