The more Sugary listened, the more he grew a tingle down his spine as he recalled more details about the book himself, and Umbra's words only kept confirming what he thought he knew. He coughed, and leaned closer to speak quietly at her. "... Umbra... I happened to notice one of my... novels... had gone missing as I was organizing... 'The Lusty Kirin Maid'... Is that what you're asking about right now? Because that's a smut novel..." He paused awkwardly, figuring that if she was asking that many questions, she probably didn't even know what smut was. "... As in, a lot of it is intentionally written as wordplay... For sex..." The air grew still, he could swear.

As Sugary spelled it out simply for her did the bit finally drop for her and she did first now realise why she had acted like she had done around the book, and a lot of the things that had happened gave a little bit more sense than what they had done earlier. "Wait..." Umbra finally looking up from her spoon, her holding it in hand pointing it in an almost accusingly way. "That was the script to a play... You mean that someone actually would stage a play about sex and... and... act it out in front of a public!" Her hardly believing her own words.

Sugary raised a hand reflexively in defense as he got 'accused' by Umbra. "N-..." He was about to deny it entirely, but then paused to think a bit more on it quite quizzically. "... I can neither confirm nor deny that. I do know very few places do provide that sort of... entertainment outright, but I cannot say if that one was ever on display." The explanation should be acceptable, yes? "... Besides, what about it? You were the one reading my book, remember?" He was now curious as to what his unusual guest was getting at with the conversation. Was she trying to learn from this possibly new experience? He guessed so at least.

"Books are made to be read Sugary, so don't be silly now and try to change the subject just because you are uncomfortable with your choice in literature!" Said a not at all uncomfortable looking mare, Umbra's hand with the spoon weaving a little bit now as she were pushed out even further out into new untested waters. The young looking mare seeming younger than ever before as she for once seemed to be in a flurried state of perplexion.

"Why would anyone write such a book... no scratch that, I guess that some depraved people would find pleasure in writing and reading such tales... But why write it as a play?" An "Ohhh god why..." hanging unsaid in the air between the two, Umbra glaring daggers at her golem for finding such a book to her, she had just read it because it was odd and different from what she had read earlier, and not because she had hoped feared that it was of erotic nature as Sugary now told her it had been.

Sugary looked mildly offended at the claims Umbra made regarding his choice of reading and pleasure, leaning back and crossing his arms with a cocked brow and a smirk. "Ashamed and depraved, am I!? Says the mare who apparently didn't hesitate to read enough of the book to ask me about it, huh?" He then shrugged and let his arms move outwards. "And besides, when did I say it was meant to be used for a play? I said some places exist for it, but they're almost always made for amusing just readers..." he snorted lightly and looked right at her flustered face. "... Umbra, if you're really that uncomfortable with the book, you could just give it back you know..."

She was not at all uncomfetable, she wad just flustered and taken off ballance, that was all... honestly!
"Take your book back then, not like I would have kept it, and certainly not now when I know what perversed meaning there lay behind the words," Umbra pulling the book out from her clothing as she had done so many things before and laid it on the table.

"And Sugary I did not say that one is depraved for reading such book, but to write it down and enjoy it. Curiosity is a virtue after all, and lust a sin." Her knowing how wrong it was for her of all people to talk about such thing.

Sugary's gaze lingered upon Umbra even as he slowly retrieved the book from her grasp, somewhat unconvinced she was telling him all she needed to about what she had read. He then coughed lightly, and began to walk back to his room. "... A sin to lust, huh? In some ways, yes. But I sincerely doubt lovers lust after one another just to break a taboo. Passion can do a lot of good to spark a relationship I feel. How each one goes about it is what varies." He moved out of sight... and then came back a few seconds later while popping his head in. "Oh, and I hope you enjoy your breakfast!" He smiled and spent some time organizing the book away, returning later on to look after Umbra and have breakfast as well on the table quietly.

With her being dead were eating more a luxury than a necessity, and although something warm and filling would properly do her good did Umbra push her untouched plate onto the middle of the table without looking at it before she got up and had long since left the kitchen when Sugary came to eat.

Having walked too and fro all over the airship had Umbra ended up at the bow of the airship, her sitting at the very tip of it, feet swaying over the edge. She had hoped that some fresh air could clear her head, and when that hadn't helped had she tried one of her many exercises but having lost her footing halfway trough it could she see that that neither would change anything. Not even putting her mind into deep concentration, her having taken her still petrified and lifeless golem froth to spark some life back into it had done nothing, it had failed even, her magic having backfired on her and left some patches of fur badly scorched.

With low hanging ears did she stare out into the horizon, it was not often that she failed at the things she laid in front of herself and today had all of the things failed for her... But she had a nice view now, even if nagging pictures swam around in her brain to catch her attention and make her fail at even looking at the horizon.

A couple minutes after, Sugary would join Umbra out on the deck as he searched for her. He didn't mind her wandering about, but something felt off earlier when a spell was cast; And as he got close enough to her, he jogged to her side with concern. "Umbra! What happened!? Why are you scorched up like that!?" Out of reflex, he offered a hand to aid her onto her feet or to carry her if need be. "You feeling okay? Come on, let me treat those wounds..."

With a sigh and a shrug did Umbra blow some mane out of the way, what was okay anyway. Since the thing with Mister Voice had nothing really been okay, if it even had been okay before and not just status quo, the broken things seeming okay and normal because they have been like that since forever. Padding the spot next to her did she invite Sugary to sit, her not wanting his hand right now, needing a bit more time to piece a few more things together.

A pregnant silence grew between the two, Umbra still just staring out into the horizon without really acknowledging Sugary's presence, at least not with her body for he was on her mind. Out of the blue spoke she up, her eyes following a pair of birds over the sky until they flew by Sugary and stayed on him. "Who are you Sugary? Why are you so special and able to bring so many unknowns up in so little time?" Her ears still hanging low, the mare seeming so young right now, young and out of her wits for what to do or think.

Sugary looked quickly to the spot Umbra offered, and reluctantly sat by her instead of treating her but figured she'd explain everything. The silence was far more concerning, however, and he began to think there was something worse going on with her; To which of course, he then found himself faced with a seemingly lost mare seeking guidance. "Uh..." It was a baffling moment for him, but there was no action he could take that words would not handle. "... I don't see any clear way for me to answer that... I already told you what I do for a living, haven't I...? I'm just a stallion that wants to try and do good, and make some coin doing it along the way if I can... But Umbra, sweetie, your wounds? Come on, that can't possibly feel good... You can feel that, right...?" He raised one hand towards her, pondering if he truly had the means to heal her with anything he had at his disposal.

With a puffing pfft did Umbra shrug once more, "I can feel it if I want, or ignore it for that matter... Its nothing really," her ears hanging low as ever and her voice still without its usual life. "Its just burnt fur, nothing worth paying attention to." Her waving a hand in the air as to wave the matter and scent of burnt hair away.

"Its not really answering my question, just raising many new ones in its place," sighed she as she returned back to the important subject at hand, eyes still locked with his. "If you can't find any clear way to answer it must I have to do with murky ways and piece a whole out from that. So what makes you special? I have met ponies with a want to try to do what they found good, and I have met those that wanted nothing but coin in return for actions asked of them, but neither of those have been like you, so I ask you for a third time, what makes you special?"

Again Umbra proved a difficult mare to tend to; Especially when she was seemingly caught between being in need of help yet seemingly not wanting it. Her latest question proved to be more of a challenge for Sugary's mind, so he took a thinker's pose and looked to the distance, humming softly. "Mediocre answers simply will not do, huh? Very well..." And this time, silence returned aside from the humming as he thought further.

Eventually, he perked an ear towards her, and spoke as he glanced to her as well. "... I guess I just found what makes me strong. I found that which makes me keep going to meet my end goals. I may not know exactly how long it'll take, but time isn't the issue for me. What matters is that I keep working at it to travel, train, and become a true Sage for the sake of others." He had a light smile on his face. He seemed very comfortable in what he was saying, not a hint of dishonesty in his words, nor did he believe he was trying to convince himself of anything. In some ways, he was still pretty simple-minded.

Thinking a bit over Sugary's answer did Umbra once more shake her head. "Don't think that I want to be as strong as I wanted before if that means reading up and owning so many books in that literature genre." Her seemingly being serious about what she had said until a little smile crept up on her lips, her offering her scorched arm to him to be healed.

Sugary scrunched his muzzle at the book comment, but then smiled softly as Umbra finally seemed to be more at ease with herself as she lent him her arm at last. He looked at it more closely, and began to use his magic... as he summoned a small flask of lavender oil from his belongings to levitate next to him and pop it open. He very gently held her hand with his from below as it began to glow green, and with the other hand he carefully began to apply both more greenish magic and the lavender on the scorched body. "... This is the best I can do for you... I'm just assuming you can handle this magic as well as your golems can." It would likely be a slow process at best, Earth healing magic being used on an undead. He had preservation and restoration in mind, rather than purification. He also looked to the petrified golem with a neutral expression. "... He'll be fine eventually, right? He doesn't feel... gone yet..."

If she had known that he would be so touchy feely with his healing would she have rethought this whole ordeal, but then again, maybe could she become a bit stronger in the ways that Sugary was if she once and for all got used to the tough of other. It had not really been of any real annoyance for her that others brought her physical discomfort, more an inconvenience that in the few rare moments she had to shake hands with others or other things she had to live with as she had the support of Mister Voice. But without him... Well she had to become stronger and overcome this as so many other things. "It is as fine as it have ever been and will be, it is just in our realm instead of this one, properly enjoying itself there instead of serving me." Umbra coming with a little pout, her ladylike mannerisms showing once more, although it was properly overplayed to hide the discomfort of him applying the oil.

"I will hate to wait until later to try again, would properly not hurt if we could move the airship out of the city and that hearts limits before I try again." Umbra biting softly down in her lip before she challenged herself, her pulling in the part of her robe that made her sleeve to reveal more of her arm to Sugary, hoping that he would continue his work.

He let out a sigh of relief. "Oh, good! So the traces mean it can come back safe and sound... And you're probably right, we should go farther out if that's what's been bothering you both still..." He paused as she revealed more of her arm, which he then noticed was worse than he thought. "Ouch, you really got burned a lot... Hold that steady, okay?" He was a bit surprised at how trusting she was being with him as he tended to more of her arm. It was then that he thought to ask about her general condition. "Umbra, anywhere else you got these burns? Or rather... Anywhere else you're willing to let me heal?" He kept working steadily on the burns, especially when he was fairly aware that her trust to him touching her was not earned easily, but eventually the rest would be up to how well Umbra reacted to the aid as well. The same care was applied in every inch he worked on. He did not want to upset her, nor her golems... He didn't exactly looked forward to having one jumping him again in thinking he was abusing of her.

With the help of levitation did Umbra lift her other sleeve up, or rather she unrolled it the whole way up to her shoulder a few marks showing up that arm as well, the magic being done slowly and carefully as it was still a battle to allow so much of her to be touched by him, and even more so it wasn't just briefly but with a healers attentive touch. She could not really feel any difference from his magic, sure what he called earth magic made her fur stand on end in a tingly way, just as if she had goosebumps, but while there were no difference to see or feel magically did she still feel better in a way after his treatment, muscles that she hadn't even thought to register feeling more relaxed now than they had done before.

"Its really not that bad as you make it seem like," came it from Umbra as Sugary took over on her other arm, her turning around so she now was facing the ship and were looking up and down the mast and at the sails. "It is just a few hairs, that's all, not like any flesh was stripped from my flesh or bones broken." Her saying the grim words as if it was nothings.

The more Umbra let him, the easier it was for Sugary to keep track of his own progress and make the treatment with a light smile. It was a nice morning out for them on the bow, light wind blowing with the promise of a new day tomorrow as the sun began to set slowly. Eventually, he'd finish with the treatment, simply letting her go gently and putting the flask away. "Annnd done... Feeling better now I hope? And uh... Want me to leave you out here with your thoughts while I get the ship ready to depart tomorrow, or is there anything else you need?" He considered leaving that evening, but the least he could do was to report to the castle one last time for them to make sure nothing else would hound them after recent events.

Umbra took some time to.think, her hands going over her arms where he had touched her while feeling after in her tummy if she felt better or not, some parts feeling good, others bad, the oddest thing being that she in a way would have liked for him to continiue, not for much longer that is, but just a little moment... "No there are nothing that I can think off that I would need help with, although there is a little matter we need to take care of" her challenging herself as she leaded towards Sugary, her tapping his hand with the mark gently. "You do still owe me an end to our little tour, our last trip trough the steets were cut a little bit short after all."

Umbra getting up after that, brushing herself down and fixed her robe, her choosing to set it up in another style with her bone white arms showing. "But I do understand that you have things to do with your ship, and I will not keep you from doing them. I will be in my room until then unless you have something that you want me to help out with." Her leaving to skim trough a certain book one last time before giving it back if he didn't had anything for her to help with

Sugary looked to his hand as well and perked up, now was his chance to bring up something with her he had been meaning to as he let his hand open for her to see fully if she felt like it. "Ah, that reminds me...! Umbra, I've been meaning to ask something of you... I'd like to extend and alter the pact. I gave it a lot of thought, and I figured I should keep this mark until you willingly decide to go off on your own, or you feel I've done enough to help you on your own endeavors." He smiled a little more. "And yes, I do believe I've yet to show you all here... If you're interested, I could take you to the fields. Almost no one out that far, and there's a few interesting crystal and rock formations in the area, some still untampered with for centuries if I recall."

Before she went into the ship did she turn as Sugary talked to her, the mare smiling a little bit as she head the request of changing their little pact. The part of her that had been brought up by Mister Voice began to salivate at the sound of a pact so loosely worded, her being able to keep him bound by those words for years and years to come, it rubbing its grubby little hands and came with a small little cackle as well, only to be knocked out by a major pat to the head by Umbras proper head pone that just shook its head, of that part of herself and Sugary alike. "Sugary you do really have to mind your words a little bit more while talking with one that draws powers from words and pacts such as I. Never head the saying of not giving a dark one an inch, because they will stretch it into a mile?" Umbra shaking her real head at him this time. "A tour around town and a look around it will do fine for our pact, the rest can you give of free will instead of being bound by words or magic."

As she came into her room did she go around it a little bit, making sure that Sugary didn't come knocking right away before she pulled his book out from under her pillow, her placing some blank pieces of paper beside it before she took a quill forth, her poking a hole trough the skin of her thump, drawing a single drop of her black ichor like blood before she placed it onto the paper. The quill standing up right, and as she scanned over some of the more... juicy parts that she only copied down for the most scientific and proper and ladylike of studies while not at all blushing, her still running her cheeks once more as she sat the book outside her door.

Sugary coughed lightly and realized how right Umbra was, but then that was what made him go for the extension in the first place; He believed he could trust her to not abuse his trust. "Right... We can work on that later then... Heh..."

She'd have just enough time before he'd show up by her door again, picking up the book swiftly for safekeeping as he spoke to her past the door. "Uh... Thanks. I'll be downstairs for a bit to grease a few gears... Let me know when you're ready to leave." And once he made sure the book was hidden away, he pondered what other books of his she might've actually read thoroughly...

There was really nothing that Umbra had to do now that she couldn't do later, so after having hidden the pages of the copied book away in the deepest and most private folds of her clothes took Umbra and gave her golem orders to not leave the room, it being grounded in a way for the very very naughty thing it had done with Sugary's books.

While she had paid attention under Sugary's tour of the ship had they seen quite a lot of gears while walking around, so it took Umbra a little bit of time before she found him, her not disturbing him in his work before he was done as she knew how delicate some magical procedures could be, and she could not phantom how complicated they would become if mixed with so much technology as Sugary had done to make his ship fly.

"Oh, you're ready now I take it?" He didn't look back, but could hear her steps just fine even in the engine room as he ran basic tests having lubricated and tuned the machines a little. "Well, at least now we got this old thing ready to go too..." He carefully got around to shutting down the engines to a calm hum and his as some steam flowed out of the room harmlessly. He turned to face her as he wiped his face and hands with a towel, smiling as he awaited for her to pick the way or just let him take her along as per his earlier suggestions.
