"Oh, Greed…" And here he’d thought that he was going to have to tell him the worst of the war. But of course the Archangels would go after Greed. His poor, sweet, Greed, who didn’t deserve any less than the best and who’d suffered at the hands of those awful things. He shook his head in dismay and lay a hand on his chest, upon his heart, wishing he could heal him in any way possible. "That’s awful…"
To think that he’d come this close to losing his mate… It was a terrifying prospect. He never would have known unless the Angels came to jeer about it in the prison — and they would, knowing them. After all, Greed was a rather high priority. Biting his lip, he leaned up to lay a kiss upon the other’s cheek and nuzzled him as if in comfort. It was the most like himself he’d felt since… Well, since before the torture started — somehow, needing to comfort him transcended all the horrors he’d faced up there.
"If it still bleeds, shouldn’t you…?" He didn’t want him to change. Lust was particularly fond of this vessel, but he didn’t know if a wound that deep would stop just from dropping a mortal shell. Angels were crafty creatures, after all. He sighed, nuzzling him again and laying his head back on his shoulder as he hugged him. "I’m so sorry, Greed. I should have been there… "
”..I’m going to have to..sometime. I don’t want to. I’m very attached to this vessel..but it’s overused, worn out..” He sighed, closing his eyes as Lust kissed his cheek. Even Satan brought it up to him. This vessel was at its limit, unfortunately. “It’s been so good over the centuries..it’ll be a shame to change it, but I’ll do my best to find one similar, right down to the eyes. Promise.” He smiled, though it soon faltered at Lust’s comment, and he huffed, shaking his head. “Shush. No. Don’t say that.” he murmured, clicking his tongue. “It was the front lines, and besides..there was nothing you could’ve done.”
Pausing, he sighed a little before continuing. “Anyways…I was forced to rest during the rest of the war, but we were victorious somehow. I think there was a treaty because neither Heaven nor Hell can afford another war like that.” He shook his head before snorting “I bet it won’t last..ah, well. As for the humans, theh’ve advanced quite a lot. They’ve sent a rocket to the moon, invented computers and television..cellphones..I tell you, mortals can do amazing things when they put their minds to it.” he said, pressing their foreheads together. “Let’s see..Envy is still an asshole, but the rest of the Sins treat me with somewhat more respect after I survived that wound. Go figure.” He snorted, letting out a soft laugh before sighing.
"Satan is recruiting strongers demons, at least. So there’s that. Hell’s security is as tight as ever. I suppose those pesky angels can’t really try anything now."
