Cygna is saying all the right things, and, in doing so, doing everything wrong.
Hiems takes a small step back, as cygna's words go right through him, like an arrow piercing his side.
And cygna sees a strange scene, where, while physically impassible, Hiems visibly struggles to find his words, almost as if unable to speak
I... hope to be... someday... worthy. Of your trust. And friendship. You, you are...
And then, cygna sees something she's never seen before, as Hiems shudders.
He closes his eyes, breathe, cools himself, and, eyes still closed, seeming like a pale statue of ice and snow
You are not whatever he says you are. You are strong of mind, and wise, and kind. Only the weak abuse whatever power they have. And he would make you to his image, cause, like all little men, he is full of jealousy towards you, for having the strength he doesn't have, and never had.
And I... You shouldn't extand your generosity to me. I fear I am... too much like him. What I can guess he is. Weak. Easily corrupted. Contemptible. Yet I'll do my best. To not fail you.
He opens his eyes, cygna sees something she's very seldom seen. A shy, sad, little half-smile. And something else. A few, tiny, ice crystals in his eyes.
Now... if you'll excuse me, lady cygna, I must go
(Hiems knows enough about adorjan that he knows some demon is haunting cygna, and talking to him. It's not difficult to guess he's not kind to her, judging by her reactions. And he was tempted to reject and curse god, he could have become a diabolist, so he believes he can relate)
