Equiste blinked as Elizabeth started speaking besite the choke. What was... 'Thats not Elizabeth.' Suddenly it turned into a pile of blood. It was Reshaya? He was too confused and his emotional side was taking a break since it had used itself too much for him to be angry. "Thats... Fine. I can take it." He said, making his way over to the situation. Cassandra was right to be angry with her. What did she do to deserve this? 'It made her fight back didn't it?' He blinked, especially when Hinderance slapped Reshaya. 'We need to explain this.'
"Wait, when did I figure it out?" He asked in a confused tone, not thinking he said it aloud. 'We suspected when she mentioned she had weaseled her way out of Filfire's grasp. However your concern over Cassandra outweighed any logical argument so it took longer to work stuff out.' The emotion from that was cold and methodical. Seems it wasn't an unintended message sending to Cassandra. "And what logical reason would there be to allow that charade?" 'Its best this is explained to Hinderance too since he is very upset to which he has the right to be, as do you Cassandra. BUt you must hear why it has helped you.' There was some concern in those thoughts sent. It was obvious whatever was sending them had thought this out. "Alright then... I think I know why she did it, and it is a good reason..." He said. He had no reason to distrust his logic. He closed his eyes and opened them again, the room becomming slightly colder. "Indeed there is. Besite the animosity between Cassandra and Reshaya, they do still care for each other somewhat. However Reshaya has a flair for the dramatic, and knows that sometimes you need a big shock to kick you out of a heavy emotional trauma. She took the risk of taking the form of your enemy, hoping to bring out an emotional response that would help you get over what had happened. She knew both I and Hinderance and Dulcina if she was awake would do everything we could to help you. However it wasn't going to be successful if it didn't seem real. So she had to physically injure Cassandra to help her get over her fear. And it worked. Our concern over you and faith that you could fight back and win helped you do it. With Reshaya acting as a true threat and us completely believing in you Cassandra you were able to conquer your fear and fight back with the strength we knew you had. Remember Cassandra, you fought back, not us." He said, his tone flowing with the emotions he was trying to invoke but slightly off since he was somewhat annoyed himself. However it was necessary and... ... Oh no, it wasn't trying to do that, was it?
