Nascha nodded to Mela. “Sally sounds a bit down… we should definitely go meet up with her. I think I have a good idea.” She then went back to the call with Sally. “Hey Sally, we still have some time, so how about you meet us in the… hmm… how about the Rainbow Gardens and we can all have a lunch there together?“ she suggested, looking to Mela to see if she approved. The kitchen would happily send a prepared picnic to the gardens, which were called the Rainbow Gardens due to the abundance of flowers in all colors and the way the light, be it sunlight or moonlight, refracted through the gardens creating rainbows around it.

Twilight smiled and laughed a bit, nodding in agreement when Jupiter joked about him being pretty good with blades. Of course it was a playful understatement. In fact, one of the reasons his old quarters remained was to house his extensive weaponry, which he preferred not be around Twilight. Not likely because he didn’t trust her to be responsible about them… but more out of concern she might get hurt during one of her visions, especially the ones that happen while she sleeps. Sometimes she could move around almost like sleepwalking. “Well then, while you’re doing that, I’ll make sure the base doesn’t burn,“ she said with a smile as she stirred the cream, butter and flour mixture, which would further thicken up as the grated cheese was added to it.

Koi nodded a bit and then heard Mars call out to them when Lumen went to peek in on the conversation once more. She looked at Lumen and then stepped up and slid the door open, stepping out and smiling in reassurance to Lumen. Mars’ tone wasn’t bad… even if it was still a bit guarded. She expected that. Mars didn’t want to be hurt by his father… again… so she expected he’d go into this with a few walls in place, just in case. “We didn‘t want to interrupt anything…“ Koi said as she walked up to Mars and slid her hand into his, trying to read the room.

Del smiled into the kiss before breaking it gently to take a breath. She looked up at him and smiled again. It wasn’t lost on her how crazy the morning had been, and yet how effortlessly they could find this sense of happiness and peace together in the wake of it. They were pretty good at making their own moments. You had to in a world like this these days, it seemed. “Too bad we don’t know when to expect company,“ she said teasingly.

Blake looked at his hand as Zanna made those marks of light appear, seeming to read them. He rose an eyebrow curiously at her remark about ‘sooner than you know.‘ He smiled as Zanna pulled away and said they’d talk again soon. “See you all soon,“ he assured the kids more than Zanna, though she was included in the remark. He looked at his hand once they headed back through the portal and turned back to Serg. “Hmmm… That went a lot better than I even thought it would,“ he said with a smile.

Eros heard Rio’s response and moved to stand up. “Never really thought of you as the ‘play it safe’ kind of guy, Rio, but… probably the smart thing to do,“ he said with a smirk, implying they probably could come back through the portal late tonight, but… odds were a night away might be just what Rio and Vera need now that they were pursuing this relationship. Rio didn’t have to say it for it to be obvious, even though Crys had caught them kissing last night and word had already gone around to those of them in the Inn.

Vera shook her head a bit at Eros‘ teasing of Rio, then nodded to Pops. “We’ll be careful. I… know a lot of people there, actually, so… I’m sure we’ll be just fine,” she assured Pops. Actually, that was the only part that made her a little nervous… seeing everyone again. She was sure, in the end, it would be a happy reunion and not an awkward one.

Sandy smiled brightly, her ears tipping forward. She looked down at all of the rings when the jeweler put out several displays of men’s wedding rings. She seemed to be excited at the premise that Panro would trust her with helping him with out his ring. She folded her hands and brought them up under her chin as she leaned forwards and looked them all over as though it was a most important decision.

Garand moved back a bit as Lana’s very skin seemed to receive a golden glow from the purity and healing of the liquid light, the Miravanna. It would do more than kill the shadow that plagued her, but it would no doubt leave her feeling better than she’d probably remember ever feeling. But he did have his concerns… that some part of Lana would resent his choice in his limited options to save her… but if he saved her… whatever came after, he’d take… If he lost her because of this, at least she wouldn’t be lost to herself or anyone else… Lana would be safe. “Lana?”

The door to the room opened and Aspen stepped in, pausing as he looked around. “What is going on in here?“ he asked. It was a little shocking to see his father, brother and Lana all standing here in the star-viewing room and Lana wrapped up in the Cradle, which he’d seen his father use at least once before.

Juno laughed a bit too at his joke, which she wasn’t sure was a joke! She could feel Torin’s eagerness, his energy, and it was enough to make her blush. And since this was all new for her, there was simply no hiding the blush from appearing in her wings as those warm lights washed through them. She took his hand and moved to the door of their room, opening it and heading inside as they finally got there… without running. Once inside the room, she let go and turned to face him, waiting as he closed the door.

Soraya looked at Abbadon and nodded a bit before sitting down at the table. “I know, but… when have you ever known me to slow down, Abbadon? I’ve spent the last two months being stuck in Aer’Oro while Zlo was out here… I’m having trouble just… sitting still,“ she admitted, taking a deep breath to try to relax enough to just eat something and then go see Acerbus with them.

Cyan and Indy looked at each other as Duncan spoke of how Saffy had probably been with Aether for weeks or months on her end, with a rising urgency in his voice. If Alcyone wasn’t more attentive, he’d struggle not to run out of the room and to Saffy before Aether could abscond with her again.

“Duncan… we’re back tracking from the feeds to find where they came out from… and in the meantime, Movado is prepared to move in and prevent him from making any retreat… You just need to breathe and stay calm and let them do their job,“ Cyan tried to calm Duncan as she turned in her seat. “Saffron is a friend of mine too… Her being safe is important to all of us. This will be over soon if everyone just sticks to the plan.“

~*~

Saffy watched him avoid his back, since he couldn’t reach it without triggering pain in other areas… and him in pain was the last thing she wanted right now. She took a breath and moved over to him, taking the salve and moving to rub it into the scarring on his back. “I also realize if it doesn’t work, I go back to that room… and I never leave it again,“ she said. “And since I don’t know how Zion will work on someone of your race and magics… you can understand why I’d still be nervous and… tense… as you put it,“ she said. She pulled away and moved to pick up a towel, cleaning off her hands. “We should give it a few minutes… if it’s going to work for you… you should start to see and feel improvement rather quickly, especially once the ingested Zion gets through your body,“ she said. But even as she tried to deflect, she knew it was only a matter of time before he pressed about Poe again… maybe even refuse to release her until she told him what she was hiding. But she wouldn’t give the girl up unless she saw improvement in him. His pain was what made him so… horrible… and if she could get his injuries fixed, his pain to stop… then maybe… he wouldn’t be a threat to her.
