After several days of intense study and research, Jaenelle had called for Karla to tell her that the ritual to fully sever Raven's connection to her brothers was ready to go. It would be difficult, it would be dangerous, and it would be painful, but Karla already knew that wouldn't matter to Raven. For the peace of mind that knowing she was free of her brothers' influence would grant her, Karla was certain that Raven would walk through fire.

Too bad that damage would be more easily healed than this.

[For the empath, please!]

Raven had spent the past few days in her room in meditation, preparing herself. The thought of pain didn't frighten her; she dealt with that every day. It was the risk of somehow changing that scared her the most. Maybe nothing of her personality or gifts would be altered, but the possibility was there. She had no idea what she might become.

Still, it was better than the alternative.

Raven rose from where she'd been sitting cross-legged on the floor and reached for Karla's hand.

"I am ready," she said, her voice not betraying her anxiety. "My will is yours."

That didn't take much thought to make a decision. "I am grateful for Jaenelle's assistance, and I have great respect for her power, but I think I would be more comfortable with you," she said.

"And you know me best," Raven said, nodding as she squeezed back. "You know...what does not belong."

"I do not think so," Raven said, following along. She'd spent hours searching within herself, trying to find emotions that were not her own. But she hadn't detected them in the first place. Had that been her brothers' stealth, or her own pride? Either way....

"I still worry that I might overlook something," she admitted. "I cannot be completely sure."

"I think I understand," Raven said. "When you were within me before...the immediate danger was vanquished and the connection severed. Now what remains is the potential."

She already knew what she was capable of if her demon blood was given free reign. She'd trapped New York in a living nightmare. And that didn't even count what versions of her in other worlds had done.

From: [personal profile] trigons_child
Raven's thoughts were somewhere along the same lines, and she halted for a moment, clutching at Karla's arm.

"If you cannot...if you have to...." She couldn't quite bring herself to say it. "I trust you. Do what you need to do. Promise me you will."

"Thank you," Raven said, shoulders slumping with relief. She didn't want it to come to that. She didn't want to force Karla to make that decision. But knowing Karla was prepared for it was good. In a strange interpretation of "good."

She drew in a deep breath. "But it will not come to that," she said, trying to sound confident. This ritual will be successful."

From: [personal profile] trigons_child
Raven reached out to hug Karla. "I love you," she said, letting all her affection -- untainted by Lust -- pour out of her. "No matter what."

Raven drew back, doing her best to compose herself.

"Then we had best get started," she said. "For I cannot wait to return to Sidra and see how much Kayla has grown since I saw her last."

Yes, it had only been a month, but babies grew up so fast.

"Oh, then I definitely need to be there to ease that pain," Raven said.

Warren could deal with his feathers on his own, however. Priorities.

Because Kayla had everyone at the estate wrapped around her wee perfect fingers.

"Then let us do this," Raven said, doing her best at a brave smile. "For I cannot bear to allow her to be in discomfort for a moment longer."

trigons_child: (Comic Scan: Tea Time)
From: [personal profile] trigons_child
There were few people for whom Raven would drink such a thing without question, and Karla was at the top of the list. She took the tea and brought the cup up to her lips. The taste was not quite something she could place, but it was not entirely unpleasant.

She set the cup down on the table. Already she was starting to feel relaxed, which was welcomed after days of tension. "Shall I sit?" she asked Karla. "Or lie down?
