"I'm Aeron by the way." The blue haired man said. "That's Marius, forgive him for being so rude, it's just the way he is."
"I am not rude my love, simply easily distracted when it comes to matters of importance. You know you should never use drugs, Westyn, it's killing you."
"How did you know?" Westyn felt ashamed.
"I can see everything you have going on in your head. I apologize if it seems invasive, I can't turn it off." He let his eyes flick to Vivian. "And how far along are you?"
"What?" She looked confused and Noe turned to her.
"Are you pregnant?" Noe asked and Vivian shrugged.
"She didn't know, but she got sick while she was away, your kind don't tend to catch the flu little tigress." He lifted Westyn's shirt and Alvin had to cover his mouth to keep from laughing at the surprised look on his face. "How strange, your spirit is out of alignment."
"Can you fix it?" Alvin asked.
Marius's eyes looked into Westyn's. "What would you be willing to give to stay with him forever?"
"And you, Alvin, what would you give?"
"The same, whatever you want."
"Oh stop reading them." Aeron said as he nudged Marius, causing the demon to look at him.
Marius's eyes softened. "I'm sorry my love, but you know I must." He then turned his gaze back to Westyn and Alvin. "It's not something I want, but something I will have to do to both of you. Souls are a tricky business. I can take and give them to people, it's one of my gifts, but in order to stop him from leaving, I must transfer a half of each of your souls into each other."
"What does that mean?" Noe asked.
"Will it hurt them?" Vivian added.
"Yes, but it is the only way. It would mean being bound together forever in life and death, it would mean feeling each others emotions, it would mean living for each other always. I know wolves mate for life, but what about you Westyn, would you be willing to lose half of your soul?"
"Absolutely, whatever it takes. I don't care how high the price."
Marius nodded. "Very well, then you must both come with me for a few days. It takes time and I refuse to make a mistake."
