Aspen smiled and nodded. “I believe that,“ he noted. Tria was a tigress of her word and, whether she realized it or not, she had a tendency to take after Fang in that way. Heck, Aspen often did it himself. But she took many under her wing, took it upon herself to look after them and care about them. Like Koi and later Sandy, and so many others along the way. “If you two need me, I’ll have my crystal on me.“ He gave Tria another look and smiled again, a telling look, like a playful ‘I’ll see you later,‘ but without the words. He nodded and then headed out to leave the girls to their own devices for now.

Eros smiled and shook his head. “You have, sir,“ he said, “but you don’t need to. You and Donovan gave me an opportunity that I thought was only ever going to be a dream for me. To be a part of this place in a way that mattered more than repairing broken railings and replacing faulty windows. You gave me a chance to show that what’s different about me aren’t limitations,“ he added with another smile. “So, I really should be thanking you.“ Which he had, many times… just as Acerbus had thanked him many times for the risks he took for the family and Unkindness. Going beyond the safety of Unkindness for weeks to find a city that may not ever exist wasn’t exactly something anyone was volunteering for, but he knew with the way he could see Twilight so differently… that ability would benefit him out there. “I’ve found myself faced with harder things,“ he confessed. Like this weird triangle he found himself in with Crys and Phere, which was much clearer to him now that he’d been gone for two weeks. He looked to the twins and smiled. “They are a perfect balance of the two of you,” he noted, able to see it in their lights.

Delilah made her way through the Royal Oak, trying to determine from relays through the crystal with other guards from the scene where Donovan was being taken to. His perch was the final answer, which was just at the first level of the Royal Oak, and with Delilah, odds were she’d probably even beat them there, even though she had been further away to start. Even with a brief smile or nod or word to a citizen of Unkindness who happily acknowledged seeing her out and about, she made good time. She was hard to miss with her tail. Despite all of those who still struggled to accept the influx of Wingless into Unkindness, all seemed to still embrace Acerbus’ wife; their new queen, essentially.

Twilight slipped a light spring sleeveless tunic that was fitted at the top and belled out just under her chest, as it fell more loose and flowy around her hips. She slipped on a simple pair of deep blue Capri leggings that came down about mid-calf and then quickly slipped her feet into a pair of flats. She came out to quickly brush her hair. Her style was a blend of her youth and her forced growing up in these last months. She, fortunately, didn’t let herself get too swept up in her responsibilities or let them change her into something she wasn’t. She was still seventeen, her eighteenth birthday looming around the corner. It was perhaps why it seemed almost fated for them to locate Aeon. Perhaps 18 was the age she’d be capable of absorbing all that was coming without it shattering her. 18 years of things she should have been learning from the day she was born being thrown at her all at once might be too much for anyone else… and she knew, going to Aeon, that’s what would happen.

Koi smiled as he pulled her in closer. She moved to give him a kiss and then nodded. “I know you would, but you won’t have to. When I think about us and our future, Mars… there’s nothing I’m afraid of. I feel like, whatever goes on around us, we’re going to be just fine,“ she said, bringing her free hand up to cup his cheek before kissing him again. She broke it with a little coo and then blushed some. “We should get flying…“ she said, offering him to take the lead on when they took off. They hadn’t been without earning their own nicknames in Unkindness. Mars taking the position of King’s Guard from his brother propelled him into a sort of celebrity status, just as Jupiter had been. But Mars’ relationship with Koi was also well known and they’d earned the affectionate nickname of the ‘Lovebirds’ in Unkindness, mostly because of their tendency to always fly holding hands, which wasn’t an easy thing to do. It took really knowing where the heck the other person’s wings would be and how they flew to be able to fly that close. The fact their wedding would be smaller and not a public event was a bit of a disappointment for Unkindness, all of whom probably would have attended!

Vera got a small pang in her gut at his words. She had a feeling, but she really wished it’d been wrong. “Sounds like you’ll need a bit of help figuring out who on the inside is doing it, then,“ she said. “Sounds like something a good thief could use a good spy for,“ she added in hushed tones, though… she wanted to remind him they were still going to this wedding! She’d missed enough of her family’s endeavors this past month. She wouldn’t miss one of her best friends’ weddings too.

Soraya looked around and her eyes took it all in, as though she were already trying to figure out the path back to the Oak with the least citizens on route. She recalled their tour and which areas had fewer locals. “I think we should go that way,” she said to Abbadon, probably surprising Donovan with the fact she had indeed surmised the best route to keep his situation private. She looked to Donovan and then ahead and moved with them in that direction. She knew where the Oak was… and Soraya was very good with her skills. She’d honed them outside of Aer’Oro, working with the MLP when she met them. “I wasn’t always the princess,” she noted to him.

Saffy swore he kept kissing her just to torment her when he finally got them up out of bed. “You need to stop kissing me, then… because too much more and I don’t know if I’ll let you out of bed,“ she teased back. She then pulled free of his arms and rolled over onto her side of the bed, sitting up and looking back at him. She pushed the blankets aside and got up, stretching a bit. All of that fun they had last night giving her a few little kinks to work out now that she was up. Not that the view probably bothered Duncan. “Come on, sleepy bear. As you said, gardens are calling,“ she mused as she walked into the washroom to freshen up before she got dressed.

Blake nodded a bit as he saw the family. They’d been so scared that they all slept on a single sofa instead of using the bed. He understood. He’d seen many Mystrians upon their first arrivals, who were so frightened and unsure that they slept under beds, in closets, locked in the bathroom. At least they were all together and, from the report he’d read, this family had remained intact and hadn’t lost anyone in their little family unit. “Please take this as well. If you require anything at all, this crystal will put you in contact with whoever your need,” he said. Security, the infirmary, the kitchen… “If you need extra blankets or pillows, La’Shire will provide on her own,” he assured them. “You’ll be safe here,” he added, reinforcing their sense of security. “Welcome home.”

Juno sighed a bit. “Is it awful that sometimes I think… as bad as my father was… he would never have done this?“ She looked at him and then down again as she ran the brush through her hair. “He wanted to control the world, but he didn’t want to destroy it. Sometimes I wonder if his being here was the only thing that kept her from coming back. I shouldn’t think those things, but… that dream…“ She sighed and shook her head. “I guess I can’t shake it yet. Working with Yuuri will help, I’m sure.“

“Really? Aspen didn’t plan a party after?“ Garand asked, a bit surprised. But then again, as he’d said himself, Aspen had really found who he wanted to be with Tria… and he still had fun, but not the way he used to, since his rebirth. He shook his head a bit. “Well, maybe we’ll do something for them later. After they’ve been married a couple of days. Then we can celebrate them with a dinner or something,“ he suggested. “That family dinner last night was so nice after so long… we could use more of those. And, of course, you’re family now, too, Fang. So you’ll have to be there,“ he said with a smile.

Nascha smiled and moved to give Sally a hug too before sitting down with her and Mela again. “Yeah, he is. His dream is becoming a reality, finally.“ She then laughed a bit over Mela’s remarks on Blake. “Yeah, I guess I could see that being a challenge,“ she mused before looking back to Sally. “You look like you’re having a good morning, Sally,“ she noted to the dove.
