'Why are you helping us?? What's your excuse??' The silver-haired demon shifted and glanced back at him. 'My . . . excuse?' 'Yes,' snarled Kagen, 'your excuse. I wasn't born yesterday, demon - don't expect me to believe that you betrayed your lord out of the good of your heart.' The last part came out as a sneer. For a moment, the demon looked as though he were honestly going to answer. Then his emerald eyes went cold and distant. Turning away from the human, the demon rose and went to the mouth of the cave. Crossing his arms over his chest, he stared out across the black mountains, the stones bloody red where the light of the sunset touched them. Finally, he spoke. 'My reasons for aiding you . . .' The silver wings shifted as the demon cast a glance over his shoulder at Kagen, his entire bearing haughty and cold. '. . . are none of your concern.' Menna and her traveling companion Kagen were attacked by Imrash, and nearly killed. Resei found them and helped them escape, but by that point Menna was out for the count and Kagen not much better off. So the result was an uneasy truce between Resei, who honestly wanted to help, and Kagen, who had no idea that there could be any such thing as a GOOD demon. Resei isn't helping; he's had a hard life, and being cold is one way he's learned that keeps him from getting hurt. Hee hee hee . . . Kagen's gonna be in for a surprise when Menna wakes up . . . . . . :-P
