Akai listened silently the words spoken around the table. Not many paid attention to her, and she didn’t mind that. She wouldn’t be surprised if no one even heard her sentence. "Well, my hands are tied. I am willing to work with an enemy to save my own kingdom unlike other deranged people, but if Leo won't cooperate then there's nothing I can really do about that." She heard Faust speak, and felt like sinking under the table. She wanted to shout, scream, something, but all she could do was sit there trying to keep herself together.

"Akai, you need to grown a spine, dear. Don't let him change who you are, or endanger your people. Faust is willing to work with you, as are many on enemy and ally side alike." Akai felt Sanctuarys hand on her shoulder. It made her feel even worse. She wanted to agree with her. But she couldn’t. Not with Dante being that strongly against it. She was too embarrassed to even look at her. She was too embarrassed to look at anyone.

All of sudden she noticed a glimmer of light as the Sun reflected from knife Aries throw at his guardian. But it was once she listened Anemone speaking of the war and death, she only wanted to be anywhere else than at the meeting. She wanted to hide and vanish. And within seconds Akai had disappeared under the table terrified of everyone more than ever. Dog noticed her and came to beg for treats knowing she always hid something in her sleeves. And Dog was right as Akai pulled out a piece of jerky and gave it to Dog who wagged his tail happily. At least Akai understood him. And he Akai. Or that was what she told to herself while petting him. Still under the table she heard the King to talk. First time actually realizing she really was hiding like a scaredy cat, she gathered herself and got back up and sat on her chair. If someone asked, she could always say she dropped her wedding ring and was looking for it. She still carried it on chain around her neck when she needed a little boost of courage. Though this time she had needed a larger boost.

The blue light surrounding her made her yelp out of fear, and Dog was caught in the same light as he was still begging for more treats. And with that - “Where am I? What happened? Is everyone here?” she had so many questions in her mind. She looked under her as she felt sitting on something. “Is that…. Bag of Dog food?” The Guardians speech made her heart beat faster and her ears twitched. Fear, nervousness, feeling lost, even hopeless. It was too much for her already weak mind as she felt tears falling down her cheeks.

She was trying to understand the situation. The King wanted all of them to work together in island of certain death. But looking at the group…. There was no way. Maybe she should just ask Dante to let her out of misery first? It was then she noticed Faust was there. “But she agreed, why would she be---? Oh no. No no no. It’s my fault. She’s here because of me isn’t she?” The thought made Akai feel even worse. Not only she’d die but now she had sentenced Faust to her death just as well. “F-Fa--- Monarkhes Capricorn. I…. I’m sorry… I… I think you’re here because of me.”
