Friends? Hikari looked up at Leirra in awe, as if seeing her in a completely different light than from before. She was still somewhat intimidated by her, since she was an Embodiment. But with the way she now spoke, and her words, Hikari couldn't help but start to trust her. She put off the same warmth that Lord Eli had, or .. did, he hadn't really given that same feeling as of late, something that worried Hikari though she wouldn't admit it to herself. But Leirra put that same feeling off that had attracted her to Lord Eli in the first place, that feeling that they genuinely cared.
Of course, Hikari had to remind herself, that even that type of feeling could be a lie. Something her mother had constantly reminded her of, when she mentioned trusting people. Her mother seemed to never trust anyone, which confused Hikari even more how her mother every fell in love with Destruction, or how her younger brothers came about. Did her mother really love Destruction? Or was it just another of her plots for dimensional domination? To this day, it was a question that Hikari still pondered the answer to.
But... Leirra seemed different from how her mother described people not to trust, and Hikari wanted to trust her as she had become lonely lately with Lord Eli isolating himself. She had Fido, but Fido couldn't talk or answer back, and Fido seemed to trust Leirra....
"Y-yes!" Hikari finally squeaked, her eyes tearing up as she looked up Leirra, and slowly took her offered hand. "...please."
