I actually decided to make that last picture I uploaded into a little series of drawings. There is going to be one more part after this!
There is a group wanting to kill Devia. Rondo feels responsible for this (he is the cause if it, but it really isn't his fault)
, and is completely obsessed about Devia to begin with. So he takes Devia with him in order to properly protect him, and kill the members of the group before they get Devia. It's risky, since it means that he must take Devia closer and closer to the danger, but that way he can also keep a better eye on him. Plus he can't handle being separated from Devia.
Unlike with Devia, the group can't kill Rondo. So Rondo has Devia hide or run away when they encounter members of the group, and basically let's himself get beat up (he fights back, of course, but it's always at least two on one)
. It's hard for Devia, who is young, and is the reason why Rondo gets in such a bad shape. Rondo's wounds have been bandaged with the scarfs on Devias legs.
Hope you like it!
