Muse – Sinning Well Part 2

Ameya was flitting and humming as she moved around the pastel colored kitchen. Since he had removed her from her place of work she had been in a rather dour mood. Pouting and throwing a fit, especially over that piece of junk given to her by her onii-chan.

She protested too much and was prone to flights of fancy when it seemed romantic or adventurous. None of  which warranted concern. However, there was something that troubled him about Ameya and that was how excited she got at the hint of danger. The bad boy got her worked up, though Sin was disturbed by the prospect of why.

The humming grew louder and then an excited utterance distracted his thoughts, “This place is so nice. It is overlooking the city. Buildings as tall as the eye can see. When you said we had to leave I did not think we would end up someplace so nice, but I don’t understand why you had to kill the residents. It is wrong to hurt people,” She lectured.

“You did not seem to think so when you were trying on the clothing and accessories of the woman. Twirling enthusiastically does not really scream your displeasure with my actions, despite your words.”

Her expression was rather embarrassed and yet there was a hint of something darker reflected in her eyes, “Well it would be a shame to let it all go to waste and we did rush off so quickly….wait, why exactly did we leave like that?”

She was easily distracted, like a chipmunk with a hundred acorns to gather and so little time to do so. It also explained why she rarely brought up why he had taken her from her workplace and random moments of wondering how friends and family were doing or whether or not they had noticed she was missing.

Sin ran his fingers through his hair. Telling her was an unimportant detail at least where he was concerned. Other than forcing the two of them to depart Hero’s home, he did not expect there to be consequences he could not handle. Still, he had to tell her something.

“Why does not really matter,” He stated simply. “It was for the best and that is all you need to know.”

He could see the questions lingering in those big green eyes. He was keeping her complacent using the blood of the Sato that ran through his veins; though if he was being truthful it took little to no effort. She was not exactly resisting even when she was protesting.

“You are just like my onii-chan. He was always moody and brooding. Telling me that there were things I did not need to worry about,” She said in a light and happy tone. A bright smile adorning her features, “Isn’t it exhausting to be so unhappy all the time?”

“Does pretending something isn’t a snake, make it so?”

She shrugged her shoulders, “I think it doesn’t matter if it is a snake. It is how you react to it.”

“You are young and foolish. Saying it is how you react to it, but you have never dealt with any situation you have been involved in; not once. What you call reacting, I call running away. It is one thing to leave if it is a battle you cannot win, but you do not even try.”

“I don’t think you can judge me without knowing who I am and why I have chosen to make the decisions I have.”

“Your soul has been laid bare to me, Meinome. I know your reasons and they all center around selfishness. When a path becomes too hard, a decision too uncertain, your choice of reaction is fear and complacency. It is better to stay with a man you do not love, then fight for a man you do. This is the girl I see in the veil.”

Not unexpected his words struck a nerve and she brushed past him in a frenzy without a single word.



  1. Ameya sure seems complacent for someone who knows the former occupants of the apartment were murdered by Sin. And if Sin isn’t trying very hard to keep her calm, then it stands to reason Ameya was never upset over it to begin with. I love how she is all about the stuff there, and not hounding Sin with a million questions. That is what she should be doing.

    She will make an excellent demon queen…assuming Sin doesn’t just kill her for being a head case haha.

    • Well she is choosing to not deal, which seemed to be the way she handled things in OM. So, it is better to smile and look on the brighter side – at least it was not her having her soul devoured by Sin.

      Yes though she should be asking a million questions. As we have seen of her in OM she tends to not do that. I am using the OM version as basis rather than OMR which Fya has yet to finished.

      This was simply because I had more to work with. Had she remained at the side of Kat, we would see a much more grounded person pull her down from the clouds, but without that grounding character such as Liz and Mao from OM and OMR, she is prone to flights of fancy and turning a blind eye. The joys of being young.

      Yes, I think she would make a great demon queen, unfortunately her manifestation would take her in a darker route which would lead her outside of where her creator would like her to be.

      • HAHA I know right? To be young and silly, and to live life with one’s head in the clouds… I really have forgotten what that feels like. 😉

        At least with Sin, life won’t be boring. I just wonder how much of the flights of fancy Sin will put up with before he does something dire. I guess we will find out at some point.

        *nods* I can appreciate not wanting to see one’s character go darker than I’d want, so I understand why that is not a direction you’re taking. Still, a girl can dream, right?

      • Yeah, it is a different way of seeing the world when young. Definitely that, Sin will keep things adventurous (though not by choice). We will have to see. Sin is much more mellow than his his previous reincarnates – Miroku for example. He would have just snapped her neck already and been done with it, but Sin is in a weird position. One part of him likes that she is this way and one part of him sees it as an issue in the long run.

        Yeah exactly, I think it would be a great story. Which is why I went the route of the Nakamaru to begin with. Having a much darker Ameya would have been a cool addition to her story and would fall inline with how she was portrayed in OM, but I try to stay true to the creators wishes on these things.

      • Makes me wonder if Sin will eventually get tired of her antics, and snap her neck… -_- I hope it doesn’t come to that, but I guess time will tell.

      • We will have to wait and see how all of that plays out. He may get tired of her, she may get tired of him, they may find common ground. Only time will tell.
