The Up and Downs of Parenthood [Inv only.]

Post by Tsumiko on Sun Jan 22, 2017 3:40 pm

“Mother.”

“Son.”

“We’re taking off.”

“So soon? And it’s the middle of the night.”

“They are grateful, but don’t wish to linger lest they be collared to their bed posts by over-protective mothers.”

“So be it. Keep them safe, hm?”

“Understood.”

“Oh, and Fayt?”

“Yes?”

“If anything should happen, you contact me immediately. I don’t want a repeat of whatever happened to them. They may not quite understand just how lucky they are to be alive.”

“Yes, mother.”


------------

It wasn’t until the next morning that the Songstress rolled out of bed, stretching her still groggy body before standing from the bed. Inserting her toes into a pair of slippers, Tsumiko made her way out of the room. There was no need to check on her guests. They had already departed, and were on their way to wherever it was their adventures brought them. But as the mother of two of those children, she had to play her part in all of this.

It wasn't an easy decision to just let them go like that, but one that she felt was the right choice. With maybe the exception of Alyssa's mother, Jessica, the others were very distraught about they children, and with no means of communicating with them, there was no way to check in or receive progress reports on their well-being. This meeting was to not only ensure that they were in good health before taking off once again, but to inform the parents of their most recent encounter, one that one of those parents will surely want to hear of. But for Tsumiko, she had to act the part of a concerned mother that wasn't able to stop them in time, and had the unfortunate task of telling the others that she hadn't been paying close enough attention to them to ensure they stay put.

Getting herself ready and presentable, Tsumiko left her home after stirring her husband who had come home at a most peculiar hour the previous night, and messaged various parents to gather at Veara’s residence. Nibbling on her small snack, it wasn’t very far of a walk to the home which was just down the road. Upon arrival, the Songstress knocked on the front door and awaited an answer.

He was already awake and preparing for everyone to come over to his place setting up the extra couch so there were three couches in the living room rather then just two so everyone could sit down and not be scrunched together considering all the parents were of different sizes and what not. When he heard the knock on the door he quickly scurried back to his own room down the hallway and he slapped the backside of Schwartz who was still in bed sleeping, mornings weren't really her thing.

"Come on sleepy head, we have guests today make sure to get dressed, Tsumi is already here." He would smile and kiss her cheek before leaving the room and closing the door behind him so she could get ready at her own leisure. Leaving their room he returned to the living room and opened the door with a wide smile having no idea what this meeting was for, but apparently she had something important to speak of with the rest of them. Smiling at the woman and giving her a hug and kissing his friends cheek he asked her to simply make herself at home while he hurried and went into the kitchen to get some chips and other things for there guests.

It wasn’t often that her phone went off nowadays, so when it had, Karahito assumed that it was merely a notification from one of her favorite mobile games telling her that her AP had refilled. Lo and behold, that wasn’t the case. Quirking a brow at the message icon, she opened and read the words that were displayed to her. The first thing to catch her attention was the fact that the message was from Tsumiko. Every once in a while, the songstress invited her out to interact with the “rest of society”. It was embarrassing, but generous all the same. This wasn’t one of those occasions, however. The more she read, the more concerned she became. For what reason did she have for sending a mass text to… Looking over the recipients of the text, her mind started clicking.

Jolting up from her laying position on the bed, where she had been previously admiring a family photo that sat on her bedside table, Karahito flipped over and gently shook her husband’s shoulder. “Garth. Hey Garth, wake up. We need to go over to Veara’s. Something’s up.” She said to him, running her hand through his hair and lightly rubbing his head. When he was waking was just about the only time that she could be so loving with the man without him making it awkward or embarrassing.

Once she got a response out of him, Kara then got up and began to get herself ready. While she was at it, she prepared some clothes for Garth to put on, from shirt to socks, and even set aside things like deodorant and a brush next to them as to not be forgotten.

Getting them all ready, Kara said a few words to the last member of the household before departing, a groggy Garth hand in her own as she pulled him along. It wasn’t far down the road to where Veara lived, but it was just a matter of getting there without having to drag a certain someone that was the issue.

Skye eyes slowly opened as he was in bed still, hearing his own phone go off the boys bright eyes slowly came to life and looked around the room he found himself currently in the arms of his wife her being the big spoon and he himself currently nestled in the warmth that was her body. Slowly he tried to move out her grasp, however when he went a little far he was pulled right back and held tightly against her bust. He was stuck like this for another five minutes until he was able to pull away from her and check his phone. A mass notification and it was sent too......his eyes widened and he quickly turned to face his wife shaking her shoulder trying to wake her up.

"Jess there's a situation at Veara's, Alyssa might be involved I'm going ahead. Get dressed and I'll portal you over there later on." He spoke and quickly kissed her on the lips while she was still barely awake. Throwing himself out of bed he quickly got dressed and was on his way down the steps and out the door. Though when he opened the door to his surprise Harley was there holding his phone in front of him, to which Skye quickly nodded too him and both the males began to hurry over to Veara's.

It was a short while until someone had answered the door. Smiling to Veara, Tsumiko returned the hug and the friendly kiss to the cheek. Inviting herself in, she looked around to see if she was the first to arrive as she had hoped and found it to be so. Excellent. Trailing the blond into the kitchen where he was preparing snacks for those to arrive, she bit back the need to tell him that it wasn’t necessary. The way she saw it, no one was going to have the appetite. Well, maybe some, but others would be too upset to have hunger on their mind.

Letting that thought sit to the side, she addressed him. She wanted to get this out of the way before the other parents arrived. There was no need to cause excess concern if it could be avoided. “Veara, I was hoping to talk to you before the others arrived.” Once again looking around to see if anyone was nearby, Tsumiko continued as she leaned against the doorframe. “I do believe that you remember Sa’roth? Well, it seems as though he’s extended his… scope to others besides yourself. Mainly your-”

She stopped when there was a knock at the door, and turned her eyes towards it. Turning back towards Veara with a soft smile, Tsumiko pushed off the doorframe. “I’ll get it.” She said before turning for the door. Upon opening it, she came face-to-face with an ebony haired ex-assassin and her hubby. “Welcome, welcome. Come in and make yourselves at home.” She said to them, stepping aside and gesturing for them to come inside.

Re: The Up and Downs of Parenthood [Inv only.]

Post by Schwartz on Mon Jan 30, 2017 12:22 am

The wife bellowed a grumpy grumble and barely stirred from her slumber, despite the ease and gentleness of her husband trying to wake her. Schwartz didn't want to have guests over so early but realized everyone had their own schedules as of late. It took her a handful of minutes to rouse herself from the bed. Once awake, however, she stayed awake.

Feet touched the floor and her hair (which had grown longer) draped down to her calves. Eyes still closed, she easily maneuvered through her surroundings and came to the vanity located on the far side of the room. Stripping down from her gown and tossing it somewhere, Schwartz rubbed her eyes until satisfied with their feeling and opened them. Pitch-black stared into pitch-black. Blinking several times before yawning and performing her daily ritual.

Not much longer did she come out the room and entered the living room, dressed casually. The woman wasn't one for fashion and enjoyed wearing comfortable clothes, that one can easily move around in. A white tank-top, light-blue shorts and a pair of sandals. Her hair had been tied up into a neat ponytail. Around this time, she had come in and watched her neighbor, Tsumiko (who in a way was her sister-in-law) open the door for the other parents to come in. It appeared as though the conversation everyone needed to hear was going to begin.

Hopping over the back of the couch and landing on her favorite spot on the furniture, she simply pulled her legs up, casually greeted the others and waited for the food to come.

Saying she wanted to speak alone to him he finished mixing the chips with the cheese curls and the pretzels inside one of their popcorn bowls. He looked up at her with curious eyes unsure just what she meant, everyone was coming over so what would be so important about speaking with him first?

She began to speak and he set the bowls down on kitchen table while she spoke to him. At first while she began to talk he simply looked a little bored, however at the mention of one name his entire body twitched and his eyes dilated. A look of pure anger crossed his face for a moment. He never, in his immortal life hoped to hear that name believing that he was officially done with that guy and he was drifting off somewhere in space.

Now he was back. How? He had absolutely though it seemed for now there was a knock at the door and she was going to answer it. Leaving him there to simply think for a moment about the fact that Sa'roth was possibly going after one of them..though who would remain a mystery for now it seems.

Picking up the bowls he walked into the other room and set them down on the coffee table in the middle of the room. Sitting down next to Schwartz it was obvious to anyone that he wasn't right now. Being in a room surrounded by people who knew him quite well it would be obvious the news he had just received disturbed him greatly. He gripped his legs knowing if he grabbed Schwartz right now he'd possibly leave a bruise or something unable to hold back right now....who was being targeted by that guy and even more importantly how did he get out of that prison.

Being pulled along by his wife over to your best friends house wasn't the best way to spend an early morning to Garth. His mind and body were still over seventy-five percent and it didn't help he spent half the night sleeping as a snake on top of his wife. Being surrounded by that calming warmth almost caused him to enter into quite the deep sleep, though during the middle of the night as per usual changed back his body not bothering to stay as a snake since being with his wife on this occasion wasn't a dangerous situation.

When they finally got to the house his bored eyes looked around and he simply blinked seems as though Tsumiko answered the door, he expected the blonde to answer the door, however he wasn't in sight. His midget of blue sat on the couch and greeted the guests to her home with kindness...for once. It seemed as though nothing would be said until everyone was here or at least enough of them here.

While he went to sit down on the couch he looked up and saw Skye and Harley entering into the house both of them looked as though they were a little red. Were they running or did Jessica beat the crap out of them for something again....either way that didn't matter.

"So aside from three seems as though were all here. Either way what's going on?" He spoke and yawned heavily with droopy eyes looking around the room and seeing veara sit and.......

Ah shit.

By the way his body was so tense something told him this meeting wasn't about a trip to Disney.

Post by Gwain Darkson on Fri Feb 10, 2017 12:04 am

Gwain arrived not too long after a few more showed up. There was a grimace on his features that rivaled Veara's, since he too appeared quite tense. The whole atmosphere just tensed further but the king didn't forget his manners and greeted everyone in the room. "Looks like the gang is nearly here!" He'd say, forcing a smile, turning his attention over to Schwartz.

"Sis, Three said he'd be on his way soon. More than likely, he wants us to start right now and he'll join us when he can." The man explained before facing his wife, Tsumiko and giving her a beaming smile. He was by her side and took a head count of all who were there. All it hinged on now, was Gwain starting, since both he and Schwartz had a discussion to call for this particular meeting in the first place. Now that they were all there, it was time to get the show on the road. "Sorry for this being so sudden, everyone. I understand this is inconvenient, but..." His words trailed momentarily, "There's something that's been bothering Schwartz and I recently. Something considering the accident some time ago. A freak storm that appeared out of nowhere, on Destiny Islands, whose weather we could pretty much track based on the clouds, a missing family, followed by our new neighbors and their skills with..."

He tried to speak the last sentence, referring back to that day and yet the words left him. Rather, he spoke of something arbitrary to the conversation and it really didn't line up at all with the topic being discussed. Gwain raised an eyebrow, shocked with himself. "I, uh, what I meant to say was...!" And once more, Gwain went completely off-topic.

Taking a seat next to Veara, Harley sat next to Skye on the arm of the couch. They both looked at Gwain a little confused while he began to talk, as he would change conversation to something completely unrelated to his possible serious confession. Skye couldn't tell, if he was trying to be funny or tone down the situation before it could possibly happen, however he could already tell Veara himself wasn't in the best of spirits. Skye slid his hand forward and held Veara hand, gripping it. Trying to calm the guy down a little and letting him know that there was someone there for him right now. Using his thumb to lightly stroke his hand, he looked up at the man and smiled at him. After giving him the warmest smile he could he looked over at Gwain still trying to understand just what exactly the guy was talking about, however may it was time for a change in topic.

"I suppose that wasn't the reason we were called here, so what is Tsumi." He spoke still holding Veara's hand trying to calm his best friend down without having to say anything.

Once the door was opened Karahito came face-to-face with the unexpected Tsumiko. She didn’t know why seeing her face startled her in that manner, but it had when she was expecting to see that blond’s dumb smile. Sighing out, she looked to the woman. “Tsumi. Morning.” Greetings out of the way, the archeon took her husband to sit on the couch. He really did have such a hard time waking up. He was dragged halfway across the island and he was still mostly asleep.

“Hey Schwartz.” She said in greeting to the other drowsy figure in the room. Looking around and waiting as patiently as possible to hear what was so damn important that everyone had to wake up and go out so early in the morning was proving tedious. When Garth spoke up, Karahito nodded in agreement. “I swear, if this is some sort of adult bonding meeting, I’ll…” She muttered under her breath but trailed off when a tense Veara walked in and sat down next to his wife.

His whole demeanor set her off in a bad way, and she knew then and there that this wasn’t some bonding event. Whatever that singer told him had him seemingly traumatized.

One of the last ones to arrive was Gwain. He seemed… off as well. Though putting her finger on it proved difficult as she didn’t know the king as well as some of the others. Her eyes observed him skeptically as he spoke. His train of thought was so bizarre that the archeon was completely lost as to what the hell he was getting at. Gwain was ultimately cut off by an equally confused Skye. "The hell..?"

Post by Tsumiko on Mon Feb 20, 2017 3:15 pm

“Morning Kara~” Tsumiko chirped in greeting, stepping aside so husband and wife could come in. Her eyes followed them for a moment before shifting over to Veara as he walked into the living room. Seemed as though he was taking the information a bit heavier than she anticipated. But it was better this way. He had time to acclimate to the news before the others could sway his emotions in a less favorable way. Skye and Harley were the next to arrive, taking their seats in the living room where there were seats left. Good almost everyone was here. Now if only she knew where her darling hus- Oh, there he was!

Though there was something off. He was pensive and tense while he thought no one was looking, but upon entering the room, it was as if his mood flipped completely. Linking her arm with his, she raised a curious brow as he spoke. At first, it seemed as though he was on to something, but then strayed from the thought. A pitying smile crept to her lips, and Tsumiko placed a hand her Gwain’s chest. “Gwain, dear, I’m not… all to sure what you’re talking about, but there was another matter I wanted to discuss with everyone. If you wouldn’t mind letting it wait for a short while, I’m sure everyone would love to hear.” She could tell that whatever it was that was weighing on his mind troubled the king greatly. The songstress didn’t like dismissing him in such a matter, but she was determined to figure out what had her husband acting in such a manner. Was he nervous? That was unusual for the typically confident man. She continued to mull it over as she turned to the rest of the gathered people, as comforting a smile on her lips as possible.

“I requested all of you here so that I could tell you that I’ve recently seen your children, and that they are now in better health than when they came to me. But I am afraid to inform all of you that they are no longer in my custody and have once again left the islands, this time with two of my children with them.” She paused to calm whatever unrest there was. “I can say in confidence that they are fine and are using the utmost care in their travels. With Fayt with them, I’m sure he can persuade them from making any rash decisions and keep them safer.”

Veara was quiet as she spoke and he held Skye's hand tightly. With his other hand he gripped Schwartz's thigh for a moment, however he immediately not wanting to hurt her. He looked down and the more she spoke he could only think about the possible condition that the children were in...the fact that they engaged Sa'roth and they were apparently in a bad condition.

"Tell me...please. Did all of them still have their right hand?" When he spoke about that all three of them looked over, his old travel partners. Everyone in this room among others saw those memories of Veara of that fight that happened long ago. The fight he came so close to death within and if it wasn't for the world itself ejecting that maniac into the star's, he definitely wouldn't have been able to be there today with his wife, or even had been able to be a father to his children. Veara simply looked down at the floor trying to think of his next move from here, and at this point he was simply hoping and praying that Tsumiko's answer would be indeed to his liking.

When he heard Veara's question Skye's mind quickly assumed the absolute worst of the situation. For a moment, he thought his own flesh and blood was dead. Though his mind quickly pulled him out of his paranoia and he realized that there was no way that was even possible. Considering Tsumiko had just spoken saying all of the children were now together, however thinking about this, he did slightly become confused. Though, before he could voice his concern Harley had beat him to it.

"Why didn't you inform us last night when it happened? What was the exact condition they were in last night when they came to you, and more importantly do you have any information about their encounter. Did that bastard tell them anything?" It was obvious his usual chipper and carefree mood was gone and out the door. He was worried, each of the children that he watched grow up possibly had a maniac on their tail, that could literally kill them anytime he felt like it. An if he was in their universe, he needed to be killed, odds are he went after the kids to get leverage over Veara. An with the mood Veara already was within you could tell that his plan was definitely working.

Hell even Garth on the side was shocked simply looking down, his mind must currently had been on overload, however he was taking information. Regardless of the situation, his son was still alive and thus he couldn't overact like the rest of them and he need to calmly think about this and more importantly he needed to think of a plan.
