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).

You couldn't hide the fact that you were deeply in love with Shinjirou. He was perfect in your eyes... but he was very lonely. He was a lonesome man on the inside, but hid it with false confidence. He never had anyone that would stay with him. People came and went for him. His relationships were fleeting, and he was well aware of that fact.
You were like his sister; the only one he knew would never leave him. However, you had suspicions that he was in love with a girl other than you. Her name was Nanami. You weren't exactly sure if he liked her more than a friend or not, but you might just be paranoid.
None the less, you were close with the man. He even told you secrets about himself that he never told anyone else.

He looked up at you in the mirror, "Yes?"

When He: Watches The Fireworks With You
"Are you having fun?" Tomoe inquired smiling, handing you a cotton candy.
You felt your cheeks turn slightly red, before you tucked a lock of your hair behind your ear, nodding and smiling at him. "Yeah," You said, taking the cotton candy from him.
The white-haired fox demon smiled at you before he sat next to you on the shrine's bench. As he did so, a small gentle breeze went by, tickling your exposed skin, which caused you to shiver in cold.
"Are you cold?" Tomoe inquired, glancing at you with concerned eyes. The small lights of the carnival illuminated him in the dusky night, making him appear as if he was an angel. This caused your cheeks to turn redder as you timidly nodded in reply.
Tomoe sighed. "I told you to wear a yukata," He spoke in a disapproving voice, poking your forehead.
"Ow," You muttered rubbing it, and closing your eyes in pain. You were about to snap at him. However, you prevente
