Ok but like imagine Seraphim’s future s/o meeting him when they were kids. It’s right after his mom was killed and he’s wandered into a town for resources. The gash on his face scares off everyone which doesn’t help with him already being weary of people. Then comes s/o who sees that he’s hungry and offers him food. He takes it and runs cuz he’s shy. They find him again and slowly the two become close friends. But sadly due to whatever tragic reason they are separated. Seraphim misses them greatly.
Years later when he’s invading a town he sees them in the outer forest. They’re trying to get away from his demons, even attempting to fight them off. Then one tries to hurt them.
“ No!” He commands. Jumping off of the Chimera and approaching them.
“ Leave that one to me.”
The demons move on while s/o looks at him with hostility and fear. Should they run? Can they run away? What is he planning? And why is he kind of hot?!
Before they can ponder on it anymore he’s face to face ( or face to chest if they’re short like me :) with them.
“ It’s been a long time hasn’t it, s/o.”
They back away a little but stop once they bump into his Chimera who eyes them curiously.
“ How do you know my name?…”
He smiles alittle then takes their hand, pressing their fingertips gently on his scar.
“ Does this seem familiar?”
They stare back at his glowing red eyes in confusion. How could they know a demon??
Then they remember the quiet boy who wore animal pelts. The one who waited for them in the same spot everyday. The one who gave them apples as a gift because it was all he had. The one who taught them how to climb a tree. The one who fought off a group off kids that were bullying them. The one they’d missed so dearly.
The one who let them touch his scar just like this.
