"Well I wish for her to be safe about but…I want her to work hard to get more powerful than the both of us…and that future is set for her." Reisen brought a hand up to wipe away the tears fleeting from her wife’s eyes. "You’re too strong to cry..enough of that."
As she listened to what Youmu had gone through, she could feel her heart ache a bit. She left for all those years just to get strong enough to protect her family. Reisen didn’t know of the corruption, maybe because the two never sat down and talked a lot like most couples during troubled times. Because of this, she felt things needed to change. “I see…I never knew you were going through so much…but as you said you’re reborn and the past is gone now. But this also means that we have to connect more. If you ever feel something is estranged or wrong, you must talk to me. That’s another key to a good marriage. Promise me you will…?”
"Gone?…No dear those moments of weakness and death will haunt me for all eternity. A constant lesson that I must never forget and the price of me gaining my current powers." Everything came at a price and this was no exception to escape the mistakes she made. Youmu paid a terrible price. In the end though she came out wiser and more powerful then she could ever be…And more importantly gained a new appreciation for her family.
"But, you are right Dear…I should have spoken with you first. for this I am a terrible wife…but I was scared of what I might do you or our daughter. The mere thought of Hurting either of you was too much to bare.." Youmu clutched at her heart tightly. the whole reason she endured so much was solely for her family. But Reisen was right. couples needed to talk not only during the good times, but during the bad as well. "Very well..I promise to no longer keep secrets from you…and to talk to you whenever i feel something is wrong…."
"Ah…" Reisen frowned and fidgeted a bit as Youmu told of her experience. A silence followed before wrapping her arms around her wife. It was a little strange that they were of the same height now but she loved her wife more than ever now. Not because of her appearance but because of the very fact that she came back. She came back and that’s all that mattered to her. Stroking her hair, she backed up to look into her eyes.
"You’re not a terrible wife…you had things that you had to take care of. But I can’t forgive you so easily for walking out without a word but I assure you I’ll forgive you as time goes by. The only reason is because I love you. I love you and don’t want to see you leave me…or our precious baby…" Reisen placed her hand on her wife’s cheek. "Thank you…and it doesn’t have to just be about something that’s wrong…it can be about anything…"
