Well, it worked, just the way she wanted it. Nothing more nothing less. Lio was fast asleep now, and as a form of congratulations, she guessed tricking the teacher into thinking she was there the whole time shouldn't have disturbed her attendance. Neko happily jumped from one shadow to another, stopping a few feet away from the school. She could see the whole place from where she was, and it was perfect to get an insight on anything and everything. She wasn't interested, so she might as well observe as for now. Who knows? She might gain something valuable. The angels and demons have gathered, what will happen of the war? Who will lose, who will win? Who will die, and who will live? So many questions, but so little time.
Everyone was being tricked, one way or another. Even she might be, but who knew? It didn't matter to her anyways, what could she have done? Nothing, and she wishes to do nothing. Either live a life of amusement, or rid of herself so she may rest in peace. Even then, she doubts everything. Averting her gaze, she looked up at the sky, seeing mixtures of yellows and oranges and purples as the sun slowly sank. How beautiful it was, if she had a heart. She was dark, she was evil, she knew that ever since she was made. Not much she could do about it though, her fate was sealed.
Sighing, she sped through the city, coming back to the house. It seems her host was awake all this time, foolish of her to not notice. If wasn't her fault though, there was a lot on her mind. She needed to think things through, or just forget about them. Ah, Lio, you can't trick your own shadow. Whatever you do, I know. Neko grinned, sliding through the window as she settled herself as Lio's shadow once more. “Hn, that wasn't my goal. I knew that a long time ago, and I'm awake for that reason. Can you explain to me what this is all about?” She asked, frustrated that Neko shut her up by putting her to sleep. Hypnotizing? She didn't know, it seemed like it.
I am you, you are me. I know what you want, and what you don't want. Everything you think, say, or do I know, by will or not. Neko said, very vague to put it. Lio scoffed, falling onto her bed. “Oh please, give me a break from your ridiculous riddles.” It is not a riddle, Leo, Neko grinned. It is the truth, no matter how much you refuse to believe it. Lio flinched, she was right. All she was doing right now was refusing to accept reality, in this case. “I'll only believe you because you are my shadow, got it? And can't you just tell me straightforward?! No need to dance around the question!” But then where's the fun in that?
