"I must have a child, so that I can train him for this job. Once he is ready, and I pass away, he will take my place."
♪Oh,♪ Sona's music played. She could tell Shen felt a bit awkward talking about this subject, ♪Alright, so what does the Kinkou do specifically to maintain balance? I mean, other than assassination or whatever you call it.♪

"Balance doesn't just involve between the worlds, but also balance in oneself." He said. He held his hands up to his diaphragm, as if holding a sphere. "Balance in the mind, body, and soul. Meditation, training, and even pilgrimages on occasions, to find oneself and their purpose in their world. Take you for example. Your purpose to spread your harmonies throughout Valoran in times of sadness, or using those pieces of music to help others in need."

Sona nodded at Shen's explanation.

♪Alright, so I assume your purpose is to oversee the clan and protect the balance and harmony of not only the world but yourself,♪ She concluded, ♪I wounder, would it be possible for someone outside the order to learn what you guys can do? Not in combat per se, but more or less in the meditation and such.♪

He walks back to her and nods at her when she sneezes. "Point proven. It's not wise to walk around on a snow day in those types of clothing. Perhaps a jacket? I know I've been trained to fight the cold, so it's nothing I can handle. You however are young, and you your body is still most likely developing. You should do your best to protect yourself." He said. He went back to the kitchen and some sounds were heard. He came back with a tea kettle and a cup. He sat knelt down at the table, pouring a cup of tea. He gestured her to come over. "Here, come drink this."
Finally someone who didn't care! In any case, it wasn't uncommon for people in her situation to do just that. The wet clothes did nothing to help her warm back up. She'd curl up where she sat and watched his every move carefully, raising her eyebrows a little, "Are you like Varus?" She questioned as the light trembling started to subside. "..And Master Yi?" Giving him a curious look over, "Do you always wear your mask?"

"Varus and I are both Ionian, that is our similarities. As for Yi, both him and I do what we must to make sure our teachings thrive. As for the mask, I wear it when meeting strangers. People cannot know my identity... I also forget I'm wearing it sometimes, as I'm wearing it constantly." He said. "Now come, please drink some tea. It'll help you."

"We can teach someone how to wield a blade, or how to find inner peace or balance. However, we cannot let people into our clan if they are not blood-related to those who are part of it."

"You... you're not going to.. hurt me... are you?" She asked reluctantly. The fact he'd taken her clothing to another room made her a bit more skittish with him. She really didn't trust this guy despite his hospitality.

"Isn't Master Yi Ionian?" She questioned. Mai was most certainly from that region without a doubt. If there was a separate language, likely she'd slip into it now to speak with him. It was more.. because she missed it then anything.

♪Oh, I didn't mean join the order,♪ Sona started, ♪I was more interested in your teachings of inner peace. Perhaps, if it would not trouble you, you could teach me your way of finding balance in oneself.♪

"I see no reason why I should hurt you, unless you came to kill me." He said with a shrug. She never did anything wrong too him, why should he? "As for Yi, he is Ionian as well. Don't you know this all ready?

"Very well. Though it may take a bit for you to truly gain inner peace. Are you sure that you want to go through this? Plus it may be harder given your... Predicament with standing on your feet." He said.

"I-I know that! But you didn't include him." She retorted quickly, narrowing her eyes some. "I-I didn't come to kill you." She looked off to the side, pulling the blanket around her more tightly, "Sh-show me your face if you're really not going to hurt me."

Sona nodded.

♪Hey, I never let that stop me before,♪ she remarked, ♪Who knows, maybe through achieving inner peace, I can find the ability to walk. It's worth a shot, right?♪
