Tekuma growled, sitting on the chair and removing her fingers from the metal table. He pointed out she did feel emotion, asking if she saw his point. Soon after, with a hint of challenge the devil might be able to see what was happening behind her eyes. Her mental instability was causing these outbursts of anger, having been traumatized multiple times but she dare not show it.
Slowly bringing her eyes up to see the devil's own, the light reflected on the brilliant green orbs. "How did you know I used to be a half-breed..?"
"The appearance your body has reflects it, but," he paused, directing her attention towards the petals floating right above her head, "Magical energies never truly change in aspect of origin. Especially when you keep having constant appearance of these petals around your head of horns! It doesn't take much to realize, 'This girl's got some weird joojoo going on with her.'"
He was already able to tell she was currently unstable, but he wasn't nearly close to feeling afraid of her. His piercing gaze did not end, as he asked again, "Will you talk to me like an adult so we can continue this business, or must I teach that to you, too?"

Tekuma remained silent as he spoke, slowly trying to calm down her raging heart. "How can you sense my magic aura? Is it just telltale by these, or something else?" The Tulip petals continued to float around her head, circling it as she looked upon her fingers. The fingers had sharp clawed tips, while her tail lay off the edge of the armrest in a rather lazy fashion.
"Good! Now," Alaistair spoke, blinking and relaxing a bit back to the chair, "Tell me about yourself, Tekuma. Give me a little background about yourself!"
Alaistair didn't want to treat her like this. However, she acting like a teenager that was high on her own self-importance and needed to be brought back down to the ground. He needed her to open up to him, so that they could figure out what they could do for one another. If she and Plato were going to butt heads with one another, it was going to affect his own business because of Plato! He needed ammunition for that meeting, when it came. On top of that, someone who'd been able to sneak in and out like she was able to was definitely a worth asset to have. Just, right now, she wasn't really one to be worked with!

Tekuma leaned back in the chair, trying to calm down and think of what to say. Blank-faced with guilt behind her eyes, the female android was taking a bit long to respond and partially did not want to. "Well.. You know of my exile and my interactions with Denim, you also know of the murder of my parents by that NUTTER'S monster. I don't really have much to say, other than the fact for my power the age I'm only seventeen.. I was killed at sixteen years of age by a bio-android."
"You may know her, but she is a menace to the galaxy and you dare not speak her name in front of me. NOXA."
"... You've mentioned that a few times now," Alaistair pointed out after listening and contemplating silently, his voice serious, "I've met the alternate version of her. She's almost just like her mother. Didn't you say you gave her to your parents, the present Silk that's just a baby...?"
He also was thinking about this bio-android Tekuma spoke of... This NOXA, as she was called.
"I don't think that's an issue... If she's as powerful as you say she is, then I imagine she's been taken care of. There was a presence not too far from this world, one that was thrashing violently before suddenly becoming silent. If this was she, then there is no need for concern with them," Alaistair interpreted about NOXA.

Tekuma looked to the side, still being questioned by the devil. He interpreted a bit more about the missing massive power she'd had pop up on her scouter multiple times, the raw potential to this day making her tail start twitching. The tulip petals went from a black to a soft silver color, while her clawed fingers gripped the armrests. "Noxa or not, there's something out there in the galaxy that has my hair on end.. I can feel it, just a while ago there was raw power stronger than that bio-android menace.. It's only a matter of time before I encounter it.."
"She's with my grandparents, but lord knows how long Demons live. I used to be a half-breed myself before I got turned into a hunk of metal by the Blue Banner Army, who failed to 'rebuild' me when the ruthless madwoman killed me again. I wonder..."
"Is good really something that matters? In the grand scheme of things, I only got myself broken in good's name.. How many people have to fall each day to this nonsense."
Tekuma seemed to be on edge about it, asking about something stronger than the Bio-Android menace. Alaistair knew exactly whom she was fearful about, and Alaistair could reconcile with those emotions. After that, she told him that Silk, the present on, had been with her Demon grandparents and admitted to being a half-breed, before her turning as a 'failed' android. Then came the question of, 'good and evil,' a difficult question to answer! It was a philosophical one, but Alaistair decided to tell her something.
"To be frank, 'Who is good,' and, 'Who is Evil,' is the job of that coot Yemma," Alaistair explained, giving a small laugh before the statement, "But I quite get that interpretation that too many die each day... Each day! It drives Yemma bonkers, who's been long overdo for a break. Which is why you cannot choose either side of that question! Instead, you do as I've been trying to do with you, with Plato, with Denim, Vennel, and all sorts of people: What do you desire in your life and how can you help them? That is the driving force of everything..!"
He paused, putting an open hand forward on to the table to welcome Tekuma's own into it, as he asked her, "I'll ask again, and do be honest: What do you desire in your life, Tekuma?"

Tekuma listened to the devil as he told her about the sides of good and evil, saying it was Yemma's fault that both morality sides existed in the imaginations of sentient beings and telling her she could not choose either side of the question. His words were definitely ones spoken with heart, telling her of why he was trying to do what he was with the group of people in that sense.
"What do you desire in your life, Tekuma?"
A single clawed hand would move to rest in Alaistair's open one, staying silent for quite a while before she spoke with honesty. "I.. don't know anymore. I've failed my father.. I do not deserve to be the adopted daughter of Cipher.. He's probably disowned me by now"
Tekuma grabbed for Alaistair's hand with her clawed one, staying silent for a bit. She looked solemnly confused, before coming to terms that she didn't have a clue. She felt her adoptive father had disowned her, naming him Cipher! Alaistair's eyes widened, knowing that name as one of the androids that participated in Reikiko's games. That emotionless individual was her father in law? It explained to Alaistair why she was trying to pull off this facade of someone emotionless!
Alaistair shook his head, frowning a bit as he huffed a breath with nose. He brought his fingers around her hand in a tender fashion, speaking out, "You've got an open audience with me, Tekuma... Let me tell you something."
The Devil shifted in his seat, maintaining the soft grip and the gaze into Tekuma's eyes as he prepped himself to talk.
"You come from a world that, my old master told and showed me, is among the most beautiful places in existence that, all the same, is among the toughest as well. Many types of creatures have fought with each other, died, and become sustenance to emancipate that glamour! That desire to continue to survive and make peace for yourself is what you all strive to have, and you've developed intrigue for that which you live in. We all call that intrigue, that desire, by a different name: Dreams! You are a sophisticated individual, who's amassed knowledge throughout the course of your young 17 years, and had been hurled into the state of survival, to only fail... That is venom life stabs itself with on a small scale, and it is something I wish to stop! I can help you, but only if you let me," Alaistair spoke in a low tone. He placed his other hand on top softly, with room to let her retrieve it if she felt uncomfortable. He spoke once more, his voice low but attempting to be motivational, "You've had your dreams halted in your life and I can feel it in your hands, even if they may not be your original hands! What are those dreams, Tekuma?"

Alaistair's fingers gently moved around her hand, speaking to her about having an open audience with him. Listening to the devil, he told her of the world she came from, that many had died to emancipate the glamor that was part of Earth. Calling her sophisticated made the android shake her head, still looking upset yet making eye contact. Her emerald green eyes were filled with pain, tears beginning to brim in the lower lids of her eyes. The devil told her he could help, only if she let him.
The other hand on top of her own made the android weirdly calm, before he told her something that made her mechanical heart twitch sadly. "Dreams or not.. I've been banished from Earth, I've failed my parents, I've killed someone because I couldn't control myself. Over the course of the year I spent in the blue banner army's services, I've been beaten to almost death by Denim, watched Plato get killed, almost brought about Nova's death, run myself to exhaustion trying to perform the best for the BBA, died trying to save many people.."
"Only to kill someone that looked at me as a sister."
"I am not a humanoid, I am a monster. Whether I have dreams or not, they were squandered by my inability to control myself. I'm surprised you'd want to talk to such a monster like me, Alaistair... Emotions only get you hurt." Pulling her hand from his, the half demon android would only hug herself in sorrow while her body stiffened, suppressing the tears that wanted to flow freely down her cheeks.
"This girl, too," Alaistair thought as the girl retreated into a ball with her story going on. She retrieved her hand to do this.
The Devil stood up, grabbing and lifting the chair to put next to her, the chair facing her. He took a seat once more, reaching around her, bringing her into his chest for a hug. He put his above hers, making sure to avoid the horns, but he had to make due with the tulip halo. He muttered, having ti spit a petal out every other word, "You- pft- don't have- pft- a bad hear- pft ft- heart! Just let it out, and you can- pft- tell me when- pft cack- you're ready..!"

Tekuma looked defeated and upset, gazing briefly at the devil before closing her eyes, trying to suppress her tears as the tulip halo still hovered around her head. Moving to bring her into his chest, the tears would start to fall in small trickles upon her pale cheeks. "Oh.. Alaistair... Thank you for listening to this and my stupid ranting, you'd probably enjoy sleeping more then listening to th..th..this.."
Her tears would suddenly begin pouring, as with a wail she threw her arms around the devil and simply cried. Everything being remembered, all she tried to forget coming back to haunt her. Her tulip halo would move to hover once again in that weird pattern on her back, that way he did not have to spit out petals as she simply cried.
The halo of petals moved down to her back, getting out of Alaistair's face. She thanked him for staying up with her, despite wanting to sleep, continuing to weep into his chest. He told her, "Everything'll be fine... Shhh... We'll continue when you want to."
He rubbed her upper back with his hand, trying to ease her down. Plato, Denim, and Tekuma were these distraught people, hurled into a world they didn't want to be in. They became bipolar, split... And Al had to figure how to really help them out.
I will return... And when I do, Life will prosper in the universe... UNDER MY IRON FIST!

Tekuma cried, sobbing into the devil's chest with the tears streaming from her cheeks and likely soaking his shirt. Rubbing her upper back with a spare hand, the calming movements made her tears stop flowing as hard as they were before. She was lost as to what to do; her dreams and everything she'd had was squandered. On the exterior, she appeared no different to a murderer with a blank expression and a monotonous voice.
But here, now, Alaistair was one of the few people to have seen her for what she was. She was a schoolgirl at heart, someone who still had a faint bit of innocence despite everything she had done and the multiple times she'd died in combat. After a while, her tears would stop in their strength and turn into dry sobs; before fading away entirely and the android pulling away from the devil's embrace.
"I was living my dreams. But now they are impossible... I don't have anything I want in this world, it was all stripped from me. I just wanted to impress my father.." Her magic aura would spark, the petals slowly beginning to multiply as their speed would pick up, the female preparing to vanish as her magic aura would explode into senseability by the devil, of which could stop her should he so choose to.
