Orion sighed a bit and shook his head as he moved to leave with Rotta and head to the treasury while the other Guards returned to their rounds or posts. How this younger raven was given such responsibility by Donovan was sometimes beyond Orion. “They do, but she’s here and not there. There‘s a reason for that…” he said, pretty sure he could pick up on something amiss with her, like she was still here for a reason, and it likely wasn’t to go back to war.

Eros turned when Mars entered the room, his voice distinctive and his tone hiding nothing, He was wondering who Eros had brought to the Royal Oak, so near to where the Royals resided, and why. “Oh, Mars. This is Dimael. Acerbus asked me to bring him. He’s come to help Twilight,“ he said, seeing how Mars was within the circle of knowing Twilight’s secret. As was Koi and Donovan and the family, of course. “We agreed to meet here… away from the royal apartments,“ he noted, showing they were taking caution, even if it didn’t seem that way initially. “Dimael, this is Mars. He’s the personal guard to the ruling Lord and Lady,” he said.

“I’ve seen my share of battles, Abbadon. I wasn’t just flitting about when I was away from home all of this time. We’re Goldens. We learn young how to handle ourselves. We’ll be just fine here. Besides, we won’t be staying too long. We’ll make our way to La’Shire through their portal at some point,“ she said, having noticed it on the tour with Donovan and heard about it through the grapevine back in Aer’Oro… that the Ravens of Unkindness had worked with those of science in La’Shire to create a stable portal that could remain active without depleting a magic caster each time. “But for now, we did say we would help ensure their defenses are secure and strong… and we’ll do that before we go. And in return I get a moment to speak with Twilight…“ she said, whispering the girl’s name so as not to let anyone hear that she knew exactly who their Oracle was.

Del looked at the objects, taking them from the priestess and into her own hands. “Messages… How do I activate them?“ she asked, not familiar with them. She felt on the one hand that she should listen to them with Acerbus, but… he was so busy with Twilight this morning… She could surly listen to them herself and decide what to do from there. Besides… she had a sinking feeling they wouldn’t like anything that would be on these things.

Twilight let Jupiter take Lukken and then she smield and moved to take Liora from her brother, causing the girl to giggle and coo and yip, her tiny ears dancing on her head, her tail bobbing behind her and her silky baby feathers all ruffled. “Your turn, right, Liora?“ she asked her niece, getting a little cooing yip in response. She looked at Lukken as he tried to speak and smiled. She had a feeling she knew what the little one was trying to say, but… no need to let Jupiter know even the twins thought he was a little too serious at times. He’d been much different back at La’Shire, before all of this came out… and since then, he went back into protective, serious mode. She hoped dimael could help her… If she could get control of this Oracle thing, then maybe Jupiter could relax and let that other side of himself out more with others besides her.

Vera wanted to ask where he got Alchemist supplies, but she knew better. She already surmised where Rio got most things in his possession. But Alchemists didn’t part with their things easily or lightly or that matter.

“Well, considering your level of desperation to get them… I’d say two would be a fair trade, wouldn’t you?“ Gizmo said. She was always good at reading a room and those in it, and she knew Rio had been hard pressed to come to her in the first place, and while he hoped to only trade one item for the rods, Gizmo knew she could easily get more out of him, and he’d likely oblige rather than stick around longer than needed. “Ice and Poison.“

“What purpose would you have for either?“ Vera asked.

“You’re be surprised. They come in very handy in our trade,“ Gizmo said.

“You poison people to steel from them?“

“Never enough to cause a problem,“ gizmo said simply. “If you have a Sleep one, I’ll take that too. An even trade. You need three rods for your little box. So I’ll trade for three items.“

“You just said two was fair,“ Vera said with a tinge of annoyance.

“And all of your questions made the price go up. No one else around here has what you need. I’d tell your Wingless to quit with the questions before the price goes up again, Rio,“ Gizmo suggested, eying Vera, who seemed unamused by Gizmo’s tactics.

“He had to check in with Acerbus and Delilah… Did you hear about this morning?“ Koi asked, sure that Rachel must have… and, of course, she had… seeing as she declined Rotta’s request for her agents’ help.
“That whole thing really got him ruffled, so I’m sure he wanted to get there quickly,“ she said. “He doesn’t even want me flying alone around Unkindess after that incident, but I trust it’s safe. I have to.“

“I know you’re putting that one away for another time, but… in the meantime… I hope you’re planning to have something for us to eat tonight,“ Saffy noted sweetly, knowing she’d be going right to the Archives to meet up with him after she was done with her client later.

Blake paused as Serg did and looked back, seeing Horace approaching Mela and the girls with an indignant stride. “Oh great… why is this kid so much like his father?“ he asked. Then again, Zanna seemed a tad entitled herself, although she’s been making strides to be less abrasive, to mend bridges with her family after the circus that ensued with her and Helios. “Hope he doesn’t get his first crush over there,” he grumbled. “You could be in trouble,” he teased Serg.

Nashca looked at Horace and smiled. “Oh. Hello, Horace. It’s nice to meet you,“ she said, seeing as Mela had mentioned her nieces and nephew before. The snow owl turned a bit in her chair and offered her hand to him to shake. “I’m Nascha,“ she said.

“Nothing… I’m just happy… and I like saying your name,“ Sandy said with a smile as she opened her eyes a bit to look back at him when he propped himself up a bit. “I wish we could just stay like this all day… but I also really want to be your wife…“ she admitted. Of course, after the ‘I dos’ there wasn’t anything keeping them from staying in as much as they wanted… celebrating as they wished.

Garand moved to open the door to the reading room and small library. One of many in the castle. He let Lana in and closed the door behind them, figuring it was probably best not to let anyone passing by see them talking with a shadow creature after all of the fury business outside. “Help me draw the curtains,“ he said, moving to the tall bank of windows that let so much light into the room and beginning to pull the curtains closed. “I guess we just call out to this thing… If we’re right, it’ll hear us from anywhere it is…“

“She has, from what I gathered. She took an Esper-Purie that resides here through it. He and another were recovered, but… she breached it if just enough,“ Ikki said. “I wasn’t able to gather all of the details on what drew them so near to the boundary. But, those sea wolves reinforced that portion with the same living crystal this castle is made from. It’s said the light it emits is so pure it pushes away the Abyss,“ he said. “I heard they’re expanding the boundaries too with the same tactic, to build a new wing for a school…‘ he said. There was a fine line between gossip and intel, and Ikki felt all he was sharing was by far more intel than idle chit chat. It was good to know what was going on around the castle, after all.

Senn nodded to Torin before smiling. “Thanks. It’s been a long time coming,“ he said. He’d gotten that ring a while ago, waiting for the perfect moment, but it seemed any moment at all would have been the perfect one as long as she said yes. Which she made clear was always going to be her answer.

Juno smiled a bit and nodded before giving her sister another light hug. “If you two want to celebrate… we don’t have to do this today…“ she said, drawing back again and looking at Yuuri. She knew better than to think that Yuuri would take an out from this, though… She seemed determined to help Juno break through whatever was holding her back from really connecting to her dragon side. Of course, Juno was usually more receptive to the lessons, but she was off a bit today as Yuuri had already noticed in a few ways.

Amara glanced up and over the edge of her crystal sketch board at the girls across from her as they spoke back and forth, Tria asking Eri about her opinion on the colors. She smiled to herself and swiped away the last sketch to start a new one, so each girl would have at least three designs to choose from. “If there’s anything at all you don’t like, don’t hesitate to tell me. You won’t hurt my feelings. It is your day and I want everything about it to reflect you and make you feel your best.”
