Despite being nervous, Erdel couldn't stop his lips from twitching upward a bit with that introduction. A little because of that slight smile, though mostly because of what the actor said, Janus's expression brightened up and he opened up a little more.
" So... does it mean you've upgraded to having friends now? That's lovely! I've only ever met your acquaintances so far, and I dislike most of those because they are cruel bastards that speak poorly of you behind your back, " the creature responded bluntly, oblivious to the crude nature of his statement, sounding genuinely pleased Senecio was making friends. " Hello, little Erdel, " he waved with his hand timidly, following the actor's choice of words. " I am Janus. My status is still not confirmed officially, but in the worst case, I'm Senecio's close ally from the seacoast. He said you are his guard currently, but your eyes are rather sparkly for a human... are you a Being? You seem rather young to have a job for a Being, though... "
" Y-yes, " the creature stuttered a little, unsure what is the proper way to respond, too. " I, I am a demon as of recently, sir, but I used to be human. And I look a bit young, but that's because I stopped ageing three years ago when I became a vampire originally. I was 26 back then, I'm 29 now, and I was a skinny man, so I merely look younger than I should, but I assure you, I'm used to working and am old and qualified enough to be a guard by human standards... "
" Oh... I see. Still, you're merely a Being kid right now, then, " Janus's eyes grew softer suddenly, though Senecio could feel there was pity and sadness in them as well for some reason. It seemed the fact Erdel was a Being calmed him a little though, but his words were rather pragmatic. " Well, human or Being, old enough for a guard or not, you're qualified to join us but by being Senecio's friend. Since we are celebrating a job well done, you're all officially invited to my first Below-stage Tea party, " he proclaimed with timid warmth. " I only know how to brew mint, cinnamon, rosehip and chamomile teas so far, though, so you'll have to pick from those four. Is that, um, a satisfactory arrangement for a celebratory merrymaking? "
" Um... I guess ...? " Young demon's age was complicated, as he glanced to Senecio for help, as he didn't imagine Janus would interact with him like this and wasn't sure what to say.
