or a moment, Sin was just hugging her, trying to ignore the crystals clinking together and keeping his thoughts and the woman within, or outside of Uleuda, that he was hugging. It wasn't easy to keep reminding himself that this crystal person in front of him and the woman in Idalos were the same person. Not as long as his eyes were open, at least. But when he closed them in the hug, it came almost natural, like it did in Idalos, even though they hadn't really done much of it there either. Both of them were busy there and all of this was all so new to him. He felt Saeri, Yana, stirring in the hug and he could feel her arms shift. He grinned for a trill, thinking she was about to mellow down and hug him back. Instead her hands pushed between them and pushed him back by the shoulders.
At first he was confused, leaning back a little, looking at her face, the crystals he couldn't decipher even if he understood everything about Yludih facial cues because she didn't have anything to read from. He just stared at light spread crystals in the form of a face. He wanted to say something, chime her a question but the pressure on his shoulders, the pressure from her hands didn't stop. He let go of her and leaned back a little with the pushing. Did she not like it? Or was it the whole Yludih thing that didn't work for her? Sin wondered, hesitated. As the pushing didn't stop, his thoughts grew worse quickly. It wasn't like he was a fan of this whole situation but at least he tried to do something with it, tried to make it work. He much rather have Saeri in his arms than this crystal person. But she didn't have to reject him like that.
The thoughts went as quickly as they'd come as Sin felt Saeri, Yana, guide him, not away from her but rather backwards to the floor. His emotions swapped right back, frustration and the beginnings of anger changing over to excitement all too easily. He tried to shift as he felt his balance beginning to vanish but Saeri, Yana, kept pushing him back. A short, chimed grunt passed from his crystals as he hit the ground, followed by a slightly exaggerated second one as Saeri, Yana, landed on top of him. Then she was sitting on him, leaning over, her face right above his, her hands on both sides of him. Excitement was joined by lust as she spoke once he'd taken the trill or two it took to translate what she told him. He grinned and before he could speak, the warmth of her asterism passed from her crystals into his and he didn't remember what hilarious quip he'd wanted to use in response.
At first he didn't move, just responded to the kiss. When her warmth spread onto him, banishing some of the eternal chill his body suffered from, he pushed back, kissed back. He moved one hand up to the back of her neck and let his crystal fingers slip up through the crystals that made up her hair. For a trill it felt like rubbing actual crystals but then the melding took over and he felt like he was gliding his hand over the surface of pleasantly warm light. He chimed a purr of approval, not aware of the distortion his accent gave to it in the moment. His free hand brushed past her leg, the sound of crystal on crystal for a moment before it too melded with her form. He caressed her leg and shifted his hand up higher, to more rounded parts of her body.
The more excited he got from the kiss, the more of her warmth spread over him. It wasn't more than a superficial warmth, just below the crystal shell, helping to stave off some of the cold, but it was more than Sin had felt in a long time. The more the warmth spread, the more the world faded from Sin's mind. The difference between Saeri and Yana, which had been a constant drone in Sin's logical mind, was the last to go. He chimed another incoherent purr into the kiss, the meld of their lower faces, and he kissed her back with every ounce of emotion he could muster for her. He kissed Yana. As he did, a shift in the light around them, caught through unseen eyelids, accompanied by a squeaky voice chiming something quickly in the room, too quick for Sin to understand, brought his mind right back to the present.
The warmth left from everywhere at once. The kiss broke as Yana sat upright faster than a squire jumping to attention and both his hands got pushed out of the meld, out of the warmth. Suddenly, Sin was cold and empty. The bond with Yana was back to normal, back to... flat, dull, Sin couldn't quite put his finger on it. The crystal form of Yana remained seated on him as she stared at the door, pink light coming off of her in waves. It wasn't too difficult to know what she was feeling right about now. It was odd to think of Saeri feeling this way, though. The door opened again, this time a brighter, very defined head popped in through the half opening. Sin had no problem understanding what was said this time around. He tried to clear his throat, chiming a little unevenly, as his light adjusted to match Yana's.
By the time the Ancient finished talking and had closed the door, Yana had left him entirely. She was sitting back on her pillow, looking quite tense as she basked in her internal light pink. Sin felt colder than before now that all contact with her was gone. He lifted his head from the floor to look at her and at the door, which was closed again. Perhaps some Ancient could invent locks sometime soon? Sin let out a frustrated and disappointed growl, properly aligned with his accented chimes this time. He pushed himself up from the ground and back into a seated position, legs out instead of folded. He didn't want to say anything about it, despite feeling disappointed in Yana's attitude. The Ancient hadn't sounded that stern when he reprimanded them. In silence, Sin's empty crystal face remained pointed in Yana's direction while his asterism's pink light speckled through with some darker purple.
