You pouted childishly with your eyebrows furrowed and an expression mixed with annoyance and anger plastered upon your face. You were staring at the Shrine's ceiling in boredom, silently cursing at one thing or another because of one reason: you had no company to pass time with.
You groaned before you flipped on your side in your futon so you were facing away from the Shrine's wall and facing the entrance. When you did so, you blinked as you saw small sparkling snowflakes treading from the blue skies on their way down to the ground. Your eyes widened as you realized that it was snowing. Instantly, all your pessimistic feelings from before vanished, and a sudden rush of joy began to course through you.
You stood up and ran out of the shrine to be in the snow, and when you got outside, you saw the familiar white-hair male fox demon who was simply sitting on a tree, relaxing. Right away, a sinister grin appeared on your face along with an evil gli

You huffed, leaning against the tree beside you. You inwardly winced at the multiple waves of pain and stinging that attacked you together, for every few seconds. Your situation only worsened when black spots slowly began to cloud your vision as you clutched your bleeding arm.

This only caused you to wince more in pain as you turned to glance at the oncoming death before you.
Soul, sawol, sela, seolaThe soulSoul, sawol, sela, seola by Ashry42
The Modern English word "soul", derived from Old English sáwol, sáwel, was first attested to in the 8th-century poem Beowulf and in the Vespasian Psalter —it is cognate with other Germanic and Baltic terms for the same idea, including Gothic saiwala, Old High German sêula, sêla, Old Saxon sêola, Old Low Franconian sêla, sîla, Old Norse sála and Lithuanian siela.
Further etymology of the Germanic word is uncertain. The original concept is said to mean originally 'coming from or belonging to the sea/lake' because of the Germanic belief in souls being born out of and returning to sacred lakes; Old Saxon sêola (soul) compared to Old Saxon sêo (sea).
