Eros watched Acer’s own aura interacting with those of his childrens’. Their’s seemed to brighten with the contact from him and he smiled, nodding a bit. “If I’ve learned anything from being here… belief and faith are strong. They take their time, but they work,“ he said, considering his new position evidence of that.

Liora gave Acerbus a series of giggles, enjoying the attention, even as she continued to play with a large, stuffed toy between her and Lukken, seemingly sharing it with her brother.

“I’d say that’s one of the best sounds I’ve heard in Unkindness since I’ve been back,“ Eros said with a smile, but then sighed a bit. He rubbed his arm through the sleeve a bit, the mark still on his skin underneath. He couldn’t see it the way Crys did, but he could see the light in it, because it was from Phere’s magic. “Can I ask you a personal question about… Lady Delilah?” he asked, though it was clear it was probably more about relationships than specifically about her. Acerbus and Eros were about the same age. They’d come up together, and Acer had always been kind to him, despite his obvious differences from the rest of the Unkindness. Who would have thought that they’d end up here. Acerbus leading the kingdom and Eros being one of his most trusted guards.

Twilight got this feeling as she moved away from the extra lanterns that surrounded their quarters… something was happening. She knew it and yet she couldn’t put her finger on it, and that frustrated her. It felt like many things coming to one point… She looked up at Jupiter and then ahead again. Maybe Acerbus would tell them something that would help. He had made it sound important, though he’d been careful not to make it sound urgent. After all, he’d sent it before he got word of the attack. “Thank you for coming with me,“ she said.

Koi watched Mars take off again, heading up to Acerbus and Delilah’s perch. She then heard the door open and turned to look at Rachel with a smile and a bit of a blush. “Well, good thing you don’t know any better,“ she said lightly, having found herself becoming oddly good friends with Twilight and Mela’s older sister. She wondered if Rachel had heard about what happened that morning… though clearly it wouldn’t be interfering with the dress fitting. Koi moved to go inside with Rachel, pausing as she saw the dress on the dress-making model over in Rachel’s workspace. “Oh… wow…“ It was… stunning.

Vera nodded a bit. “Yeah… I’m fine,“ she said with a smile and then watched him remove the rods. “So… who would have those? That merchant we dealt with earlier?“ she asked curiously, though neither of them were probably all that keen to go back to him. Of course, Rio probably had his connections. There was another thief who went by the name of Gizmo, and she was pretty keen on obtaining the sorts of things Rio was looking for. Of course, as he said, it usually cost him. Wouldn’t likely help that she was one of his previous flings who would most certainly have noticed his fancy for a Wingless.

Soraya slowed as they neared. “Oh…” She said suddenly and looked at Donovan. “She’s blind,” she said. Abbadon’s focus was on the surplus of rules being listed off, while Soraya was trying to figure out why such rules might exist… and it clicked fairly quickly for her by the eighth or ninth ‘rule’. “Don’t worry. We don’t have any intention of disturbing your home or her. We’re trying to help, remember, Captain?” she asked, using his station to remind him that he was with a princess and the emperor’s right hand eagle. They weren’t here to cause trouble.

“Aww, shucks,“ Saffy said with a playful coyness when he called her cute. She walked over to him and moved in to kiss his cheek before slipping her hand into his, heading out with him to make their way to the outdoor gardens. “I’m looking forward to this, actually,“ she mused as they walked through the castle, Saffy running her free hand along the crystal walls, watching the lights dance under the fingers. “Amazing how many changes this place has gone through in a matter of months, huh?“ Though the same could be said for them!

Blake smiled a bit, unaware that Serg and Nascha were also trying for a family, but he couldn’t help but see Serg with his own children in such a manner. Or being a remarkable educator, which he seemed eager to pursue. He then looked to his crystal and then to Horace. “There’s a stretch of balcony up ahead. There’s something you might want to see from there,“ he said, planning to take a moment to stop and let him see the view. Yes, it seemed peaceful and sunny inside the boundaries of La’Shire’s reach… but beyond it was nothing by darkness… and yet… Sarah had sent a message earlier about seeing the light from the Spiritus Tree all the way in Ethion… like a beacon in the darkness. Perhaps to see that the light still had strength, even in the darkness, would help reassure the boy that this fight was far from over.

Juno moved out into the room and looked around a bit as though she half-expected it all to change into the loft over the tavern, or her father’s office at the Inn. She hugged herself and rubbed her arms a bit to work the chill that rushed up her spine out of her system. She then headed into the closet to change into something comfortable to try to train in. All they were doing was trying to get her to find another of her forms, now that her dragon heritage was unlocked from the rebirth. But it could be exhausting, mentally and physically, and Juno preferred to be comfortable. She pulled on a pair of Capri leggings and a t-shirt. She put her hair up into a ponytail and one would even say she looked cute in her ultra casual attire.

Garad nearly choked on air when Lana made that remark. He looked over at her, as though to silently ask if she was crazy to say that in front of Fang… not that Fang had any delusions over the relationships that occurred between any of his ‘family’ and their significant others. It’d all been harmless enough when the shadow appeared, but still! “L-Lana… I don’t think it’s here by choice. And I made it leave… without any incident,” he said, looking back to Fang, almost a reassurance that everything was okay.

Del could certainly feel her in-laws’ eyes on her and she knew their concern. It couldn’t be easy to hand over an entire kingdom to Acerbus and her, no longer being the first to know of these things, even though Del and Acer still relied on Samson and Judith for advise and assistance when needed. She tipped her ears back a bit, able to hear someone approaching and, odds were good, if she could hear it, Fai would with her extra sensitive ears. “You should get your things,” she said, meaning her medical supplies. Of course, Fai would probably be relieved to see the field dressing Soraya had done. She’d already done the hard part for Fai, removing the arrow with minimal agitation to the wound as it already was, and the blood she could smell -- Del could smell it too -- but it wasn’t fresh blood, not running. It was from when the injury first happened, on his clothes. The bandage was holding well enough. Were it Nascha who had been there, her feathers could act as seal or bandages. She’d tended to Serg’s wounds with such magics, but Soraya did the best she could… being an Eagle and her magics not healing inclined, but her experience came in handy.

Orion heard her repeat the words back to him and he just studied her a moment, the blush that rose up on her face, the way her ears fell back in such a shy way. He hadn’t meant to, but it seemed he’d caused her to do it with his choice of phrase. He smild and nodded to reaffirm that, yes, he would show her around. He didn’t realize this morning he would be meeting her or offering to show her around or thinking about how cute she was with her ears like that. He cleared his throat and looked over, pausing at the look he seemed to be getting from Pops. “Uh… well… wow. I really need to go get ready for this meeting, so… I’ll be back a bit later to move in and… thanks for breakfast, Pops. And, Pherenice… it was a pleasure,“ the raven-jay said with a smile. He then moved to head out, likely leaving Pops to do his father-like speeches and stories to Phere.

Nascha moved to take a seat again with her friends. This was exciting. It felt like so long since the three of them did this. She then nodded a bit as Mela mentioned they were talking about the guys, particularly Serg becoming headmaster to the new school. “I heard a rumor that Lord Traitorin, Lady Dia and Lady Silvatrista are going to work with the Lemurians to actually build a wing just for it,“ she said. “Proper classrooms, so Serg won’t have to worry about reorienting any of the rooms here. Hey, that's a great idea, Sally. I'll let Serg know. I think you'd be amazing teaching singing,“ she hooted with a smile.
