Shiloh (Del thru Ikki)
Sat Jul 7, 2018 11:14pm

Delilah looked across at Donovan and nodded a bit. "Of course, but... I'd much rather you rest some this morning. Perhaps we can get you some Zion to aide in the healing," she said, knowing Fai had access to it. "I'll notify the treasury you'll be sending a couple of your Guards to collect the crystals," she added. She moved to stand up, looking back at her in-laws. She wondered what their perspective on all of this was, to merely sit back and wait for she or Acerbus to request their advisement... and yet seemingly content to let them lead in their own way. She looked back to Donovan. "I have a few other stops to make. Let me know if either of you need anything," she said before moving to show herself out. She needed to check in and do the same with the two other Guards who had been injured and taken to the infirmary bough a few trees over. She would be putting together this elaborate puzzle somehow. Everyone seemed to fit into it in some way and she worried it would certainly lead to Chaos.


Eros nodded. "I'll return with him and meet you there, then," he said before showing himself out. He moved as though he could see the room he was in, but rather navigated around the auras he could see therein. He'd walked into his share of tables and walls until he figured out his own means of identifying room layouts and if something was in his way. He'd grown up like this. He was so good at being unable to see, it was easy to assume he could. He took off to head back to the Inn where he'd collect Dimael and escort him the most secretive way back to the Royal Oak.

Twilight watched Eros go and she tensed her hand within Jupiter's. She took a breath and sighed, looking back to Acerbus and the twins. She slowly pulled away, walking further into the room and sitting down on the floor beside their playpen. She sat back on her heels and reached over the edge to pick up Lukken, since Liora seemed happily distracted by one of their toys. She set her nephew on her lap and held him. "Hey, Lukken," she said, shifting around to sit more comfortably. The twins were a nice reprieve for her from all of the more pressing things a girl her age wouldn't normally have to worry about.

Koi paused a moment at Rachel's little joke. She blushed a bit and smiled, shaking her head. "Rachel.." she mumbled a bit, then looked at her reflection again and sighed. She turned to face Rachel. "I want to," she said, "but... I also keep wondering what impact I could possibly have. They would never take me seriously. So many of them are so much older and have been on the Council for ages. They would just see me as an altruistic child who listens more to her heart and her instincts than her head. Not all of them liked my father's position on things, his loyalty..." She sighed and shrugged. "Mars wants me to take it, too... He's so supportive, but... I still don't know what I'll say to Acerbus."

Vera managed, somehow, not to let her ears give away anything. She sort of assumed Rio had been with girls, from what Crys had hinted at, but hearing it directly from him was a weird reality check. She knew what she was getting into with him, though. She knew he'd have a past and that past would probably show up frequently in the form of girls who were ex-flings. He was being honest with her. She could hear it in his tones that it wasn't exactly easy for him, but he was making the effort. that alone reinforced her belief in all he'd said last night... about wanting to try this with her. Something... real. She nodded a bit. "You just... you're acting like it didn't end so well," she said. "Like she's the last person you want to see. Did something else happen?" she asked. "Or is it just that... I'm coming along and that makes you uncomfortable?" she asked curiously.

"I'm glad we're doing this," Saffy said as she looked at him and smiled. "It's beautiful out here..." At least what they could see was... She knew if they went up one of the towers or into the castle, instead of being down here in the expansive gardens, they would be able to see beyond the walls and see the darkness past the boundaries. But right here, right now, it was such a beautiful day. It was almost easy to forget for a moment that anything was wrong out there.

Blake paused in his step just a bit before looking at Serg again. "Wait... you and Nascha are trying to have a baby?" he asked before smiling. "Wow, well... I mean, wow. Congratulations, Serg. So that's why..." he said, nodding a bit, as though he was finally getting answers to his unasked questions. He'd been wanting to ask Serg all morning if the rumors of him leaving the Knights were true, to start the school... and he'd wanted to know why. Perhaps starting a family was a valid reason, and pursuing a personal dream another. But being a knight was ingrained in Blake as much as being a prince was, and he couldn't see any other path. "Mela and I are trying too," he told him quietly, so Horace wouldn't hear. Last thing Mela would want is for all of her family in Unkindness to know before they'd even managed to get pregnant.

Juno looked down at the steps as she climbed them with him. "Hmm... intriguing idea," she said, glancing at him. "Maybe that could be your next great invention," she said with a smile before they finally reached the top. She opened the door and squinted a little at the sunlight that poured down on them through the break in the darkness above. She looked around at the sprawling rooftop gardens and sighed. "Oh great. Now we're trying fresh air and flowers," she said. Yuuri kept changing the location of their training to try to stimulate Juno to shift... though this time it seemed to was hoping to get her to relax enough that maybe it'd come naturally.

"You like that?" Sandy asked with a playful smile when Panro mentioned her being good at kneading his back. It was an instinctive thing and no doubt would feel good, especially since she took care not to use her claws too hard, but it was a happy motion. She nuzzled into him a bit and slid her hands up his back as they cuddled to knead in a different spot. "Then I'll keep doing it," she purred for him. She was just as happy cuddling like this as she was to be doing anything else with Panro.

Garand nodded a bit, "Right," he agreed. "Well, maybe one of the reading rooms or somewhere like that. Plenty of those around, so they're never all being used at once," he noted. And he was sure Lana didn't care where they met this thing, as long as it wasn't in their room.

Ikki smirked as he walked with Fang. "Well, let's hope that gets things moving in the right direction for her again. She was getting a bit lazy there for a while, and I think maybe that's why she was getting so mopey," he added. They were used to being a lot more active back in the camps, and with this Abyss rolling in keeping them all cooped up in the castle, unable to even go out and do missions and reconnaissance out there, they were all feeling a bit cabin feverish. At least Panro had found a means of coping with it. He had Sandy to help channel that energy. Tria had Aspen and a world of other stuff to navigate through, including a wedding tonight. "I don't know if you heard, but... I think Vera's coming back tonight," he said, knowing Tria had sent an invitation to her. He also knew Fang felt a little lost without his entire 'family' together. She'd been in touch, mostly with Fang, but this would be her first time back with them..
