59F°, currently it is mostly cloudy and set during the day. Located in Sunspire Mountains, northstar vale | ooc notes: set right after this thread, don't worry about the length! | tagging: @Takeshi

Furious, the Empress tracked down the man she loosely called "her husband". Though there were times when things almost seemed sweet, as if things might fall into place and they could be a loving family and raise the children together as they should - the news that Collision had shared with her was the woman's final straw. Despite the lack of os musculature and thinning of her body, the anger she felt toward the new Emperor fed her courage to track down the man who had done so much wrong since his appearance. 

Her stride was firm and long with a powerful elegance despite the spindly stiletto legs that held her up, and she did not falter in the desire to face him, no fear like before - but perhaps, as @Collision 's parting words barely resonated in her consciousness, she was being dumb

Having no right to cower from the man any longer after he had murdered not only the man she had cared for so long, loved even in secret until their admission to one another so recently, but also Hiromi's husband, father to her child and part father to the ones Reiko had brought herself. How could she cower when he was disrupting the vale in such a way? No longer was it just between them, but everyone saw. So many were affected in one way or another and the news of Yuudai's death would spread soon enough. 

As the man's scent grew stronger, her stride quickened until he came into view. Glaring at him from where she stood, she quaked with anticipation and desire to explode. You killed him. Yuudai is dead because of you and everyone was witnessed to it. A few breaths to keep her from yelling, from spitting with fire and hatred she kept her tone cold but leveled. You're no longer welcome here, you have brought turmoil to the Empire, you are undeserving of the title of Emperor.

Takeshi
Reneian Empire
Emperor *
She approached with an obvious anger, and Takeshi turned to face her fully, tail twitching with impatient anticipation before she spoke. Then came her words, which caused his jaw to drop momentarily like a trout with shock before he snapped it back closed. Gaze flickered, observing her momentarily- was she lying to guilt him? But her emotions seemed genuine, and he realized that she must be telling the truth. That is... deeply unfortunate. I had no intention of killing him. But it was he who decided to be insubordinate, and so I had to silence him somehow... Takeshi trailed off, realizing how cold his words were. He had never liked the man, but now that he was gone, he no longer had to worry about seeing him- and had to be respectful somehow. Shall we bury him? We should arrange a fune- 

But then came her next words, and Shi scoffed. A moment quiet, and then he threw back his head with a mocking laughter before he met her gaze again, smirk settled on his face. You're fucking funny, He laughed, with a shake of his head, I hurt him, yes. But he was disloyal. And you and me are fucking equals, don't forget that, bitch. Just because you have a temper tantrum doesn't mean you can throw me out. We're mates, remember? No matter how much you deny it. You can't fucking get rid of me. As he spoke he seemed to swell, chest puffing, fur spiking along his spine and posture adjusting to show off his full massive size. She could bitch and cry all she pleased, but he was Emperor here too, and he did not intend on letting that title go easily- especially not to his wife.

At first, he seemed genuine as if it was all a mistake and perhaps he would repent for doing them all wrong upon the first day that he was crowned as Emperor. Though it was inexcusable to kill a member, even if it were a mistake, he had obviously gone too far and should pay for his wrongdoings in bringing tension and pain throughout their ranks. For a brief moment, she believed they could work something out, that perhaps even if the moment was painful, they could find peace eventually with a fatal mistake - but of course that was wrong. 

Immediately he disproved it all, scoffing and scolding her for the desire to get rid of the stain in the empire that caused so much pain. Did she know of it all? Was he only ever haunting her or were there others she wasn't aware of? She feared the answer, hoping that she did manage to keep his wrath contained until the meeting. We are not equals. She spat back the same venom he spewed to her. They spoke against your crown, not against mine. They do not respect or love you, they fear and despise you. Not me, not anymore. Taking a few steps closer, she didn't care for the display he was putting on.

With fur rising to their defensive peaks, she stared daggers at the false leader, the false husband. Her anger reaching its peak, his mockery, dismissal of her, and her demands despite the outcome of the meeting. In the face of a man who was twice her size in height and nearly tripled in her current weight, she tried to talk and again he shrugged her off, no more. With a snap she lunged with the full intent to sink her fangs into the man's flesh, to make her point come across that she was no longer the same feeble, frightened woman as before.

She was a mother, a leader, a lover, a friend, but no longer a coward.

Takeshi
Reneian Empire
Emperor *
Being feared is better than being liked, He spat after her words, blue flame lighting in his gaze. You're right. We're not equals. I'm over you, always- like I was when I fucked you, like I am as emperor, and like I will be when I bury you in your grave. He declared, taking a step forward even as she did so. Admittedly, her attack came as a surprise to Takeshi. Always she was willing to spit her ugly words, open her loud mouth to complain and scorn, but he'd never thought Reiko to have the guts to leap for him.

Eyes widened in a moment of shock, and unprepared, she came down on him, and he felt her fangs pierce at his shoulder; searing pain. And then the beast was awakened in him. A vicious snarl ripped from his throat, and he whirled on her like a jungle panther, speed, brawn, strengthened by anger. He threw himself at her fully, intending to sink fangs into her neck in turn- unthinking, like a rabid animal, in that moment not recalling her as wife and only seeing her as enemy. And with his fangs came force; if he found her throat he would likely slam her to her back as well amongst the grasses, ultimately looking to pin her with his weight, and a bite, a reminder of her place- not only in marriage, but in this Empire as well.

Liked, he was right. At first, she liked to think they loved her and maybe they did at one point, but decision after decision to try and keep the peace, to kee the turmoil hidden from everyone's sight, did they all turn their backs on her now? Did they even like her now? At least she was certain of one thing, they hated Takeshi, just as she hated him. 

Like I was when I fucked you. His words were barely audible from then on, muffled beneath the beating of her blood boiling within her ears and veins. Those words, the chosen words alone infuriated her. There was no flinching as her teeth made contact, the blood that stained her tongue, and how bitter it tasted. Instead of recoiling at the thought of fighting, she leaned into it, savagely biting and chewing wildly. Paws trying to wrap themselves around him and his shoulder, digging in as if it would help her grip - how could he, how dare he talk to her that way!

It was no use, the futile attempt to secure her grasp on him was lost as he retaliated. Her lithe body was thrown around like it weighed nothing, even her teeth slipped when the earth collided with her back, forcing a cough as air forcefully expelled out from her lungs. Biting back a whine or a yelp, she wouldn't give in, not this time. Though her skin and neck burned as he found his own mark, uncontrolled growls vibrated through her body as she was not done yet. 

She hated being here, under him again. With all four paws, she reared up from under him, scratching and clawing as she pushed, kicking with all her might with her hind legs while flicking them back like a cat flailing wildly on its back. She had a hard time reaching with her fangs but she tried regardless, twisting and turning as she tried to find her own mark on his neck no matter how awkward or painful it was to try, all the while growling and snarling in a way she had never done so before.
