Demon and Fairy WeWriWar 32

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!
Welcome to Week-end Writing Warrior and Snippet Sunday.
Sorry for not participating last week-end, I was in the south of Japan on an island called Iriomote with only one road covering the north part of the island while the south is covered by a deep Jungle and of course I didn't have internet. 
Anyway, I'm back to the main Okinawa island now and I'm flying back to Tokyo then take the bus to Sendai today. But enough about my travels (if you are interested a new travel series is starting on this blog tomorrow) let's continue with our story.

In the previous episodes: Seti was in pain and flying to see Kallisto who is the only person who can help him get ride of it. He remembered how he had met her the first time but unfortunately this time it was late at night and she was nowhere to be seen. Seti couldn't spend the night on the Beach and decided to fly home not noticing that another demon entered her house. We followed Seti and discovered his chaotic bedroom before meeting his family for breakfast. They were arguing about Seti's sister's arranged wedding being canceled by the other family and Samira was crying. Their father said that Seti would just have to apologize. and we learn what Seti thinks about the situation. Seti met the twin's father and gave him an unexpected apology demon style which scared everyone around except Taram who had been spying at the scene from the stairs with his twin brother Torin. After the confrontation, as always when he has a headache, Seti flew to the beach and fell asleep near the tidal pool. When Seti waked, he saw Kallisto facing a snake he managed to get through the barrier and stop it from attacking her, at the moment he is about to kill the snake, Kallisto tells him to stop and had him let the snake on the other side of the barrier. Then Seti had an unexpected reaction but Kallisto didn't going to let him go that easily. Kallisto seems to have a very strange combination of people taking care of the security of the house, which scares Seti a little bit while Kallisto seems to consider that he is her best protection. He decided to fly away then notice the arrival of Kelpie. Kelpie had just ask Kallisto if he has already told her about Kordelius' ugliness.

Here are my 8 sentences, we start just where we left of.

“Almost every time I see you,” Kallisto sighed. Her arranged marriage in the Fairy World wasn’t really her favorite topic.
“Well, he seems to be fatter than ever and he has a new spot on his nose, not that it changes anything as his face is almost covered of spots anyway. They are really getting excited. They tasted the food for the wedding today, probably nothing you would like to eat though, and he had the sauce leaking on his chin. Did I ever tell you how terrible the food is in the Fairy World? I mean even I have to admit, human food is a lot tastier. They are lacking sun for their vegetables and…” Kelpie said.

    Good snippet -- I can see Kallisto on her swing, and I picture her as wishing Kelpie would either shut up or go away...
