“What did you do?”
Elegant eyes narrowed.
“It was only just a little… the humans probably won’t even notice, much….”
“What,” Kanzeon bit out, eye to eye and nose almost squashing Roman nose, “did you do?”
“I made sure Angelus used dragon blood in the spell don’t hurt me!” he babbled.
Deliberately, Kanzeon put him down.
“Dragon blood,” se said levelly.
“Well, have you ever tried making a spell channel divine power through a Slayer’s body?” Janus protested. “It’s like making a vampire hold onto a cross. She would have been cinders! I had to make sure there was something that could mediate between the demon and the saint. Can you think of anything better than dragon blood?” He shrugged, shadows dancing. “Besides. Making the spell exotic made it more likely Angelus would actually try it. He’s weird that way.”
“Good argument,” Kanzeon allowed. “But Janus? When was the last time you visited the Dragon Court in Shangri-La?”
“Er… a while ago?” The dragons of Kanzeon’s native realm weren’t all that fond of chaos. Which was a pity. They were beautiful when they were angry.
“And while you were there, did you notice how many dragons have kami blood?”
Janus blinked. “There are dragons with kami ancestors?”
Kanzeon stifled a groan. “You were right. Dragon blood and divine power blends very well. Too well. And even in a human incarnation, that’s my niece down there. My kami niece.”
