"So all of your innocence is gone from that Angel side of yours?" he asked with a raised brow, sitting down next to him as he leaned back and placed and arm around the other.

Giving a laugh, the fangs showed a little as his gave a grin down to the other. Looking down at Vector - he ruffled the other's hair a little, "I can still make due with that." He said with a small shrug as he glanced out the window for a moment.

Valic pulled Vector onto his lap by grabbing him under his arms and setting him down - keeping his arms around the other's middle as he kept his gaze looking through the glass. "In hell we have tons of farm creatures you guys don't have here. I miss my pets there." He said with a small frown, seeing as some of them died in the war and others were left behind.

Vector looked at Valic, "What kind of pets were they?" he asked thinking he could buy some for Valic if he trulry wanted them.

Shrugging his shoulders a little he gave a small sigh. "Two 'wolves' I guess you could say and a 'horse'. Though they were really something completely different, though all the other's died - those were the last alive of the three. Rose Garden. She was a sweet heart, though her entire body had no organs - just a bunch of thorns and roses, orange at that with a red single one for her heart. Then there was Sky, he was sneaky and kinda snappy. Made up of darkness and shadows. And I had Narz. Untamed monster for sure. Took a while to get a little trust - then we had to leave and part ways. They're all pretty hard to find though, rare breeds."

"Yea - been with them for a while, had them when I found them in the wild. That's why they're rare. Oh, and there's Yukia. He's a pretty bitter creature - deranged and insane...poor guy, he's probably dead though - he couldn't live on his own." He said with a small sigh, though hugged Vector back and kept looking out the window.

"Of course I do - they were there before I got in the war and they stayed loyal - living with me until I wound up in the slave trading. They were my..family." He said with a soft voice, "Rose Garden like a sister to me, Sky was more of a brother and Yukia...well, let's just say he was like the crazy uncle. And I didn't know Narz that long - but I miss him." Valic smiled a bit at memory then shook it off, "Though nothing to worry about, they're tough - they'll survive for millions of years."

Valic gave a heart broken laugh and shook his head a bit, "I could only dream..." He smiled at the other and kissed his forehead softly. "But if I did have them, I'd be one of the happiest demons out there..." he muttered softly, eyes closed and chin on top of the long silver hair.

Valic gave a curt nod to that and smiled before looking out and seeing the beach front and a bunch of buildings as well. he tipped his head to the side a bit as he marveled the sight.

Valic nodded as he took in the lovely fronts, seeing the stores and stands - all the people there. Not many demons though... He shrugged it off and looked down at vector for a moments. "How often do you come here?"

"You devil you." Valic teased as he felt the cab pull to a stop and the door open for them. "Shall we?" He asked with a smirk on his face. His tail flicking from under him.

Valic raised a brow and followed out, stepping from the cab and grabbing their things as he scanned around the room - pursing his lips. He yawned softly before stepping up next to the other - looking down to him. "Alright - but let's go set this down first."

"Sure, why wouldn't we?" Val muttered out with a soft chuckle, shaking his head as he walked towards the soft white sands with lovely shells and crashing waves. The sky was fairly bright and the buildings also - the water glistening. Yup - sure not like hell.

Valic followed and set the items on the sand, setting an umbrella and two towels before resting the picnic basket under the umbrella. Taking off his shoes and tank top, he set them down and followed the other - hands in his pockets as he scanned around for a moment. Making sure that the female and other demon weren't near by any chance.

Rolling faded jade eyes, Valic followed after, careful where he stepped - knowing there were little dips in the sand to make it deeper. In the short distance, he saw a sand bar. "Want to go there?"

Valic had a soft smile on his face, a rare one. He cupped his hands in the water and lifted a rainbow sort of fish in his hands. "It swam around with its beautiful scales and fins that were long and sleek.

Raising a brow to the petting, he looked at the other and tipped his head to the side - as though trying to stop the petting. He looked to the fish and set it back down in the water before rubbing his wet hands on his dry pants.

Valic pulled the other over and under his arm as he looked into the water as well. The fish swam closer towards the shore - larger fish soon joining them and jumping in and out of the water. Valic looked at the sights and tilted his head a bit - never seeing this before.
