[i Naiomi] is known as a mysterious beauty. Her red hair matches the Starian's flare. Her pale skin compares to an Ician's glow. Her eyes resemble the Nekoblazian's characteristics. However, she seems rather human in any other way. She does have the capability to defend herself. In the past she's had unwanted attention from many, including her past employers. She's even been fired from her past jobs because she refused to sleep with her bosses. Eventually [i Naiomi] ends up in a better work environment with a Nekoblazian as her boss. She works as a bar maid at a local fancy restaurant. All she is asked to do is to serve drinks, snacks, and to look pretty for the customers. The last can be done because none really knows what race she is.
Astrid, the Nekoblazian boss at the Blackthorn Restaurant, has befriended [i Naiomi] as well as the other employees working there. One night they all decided, weather or not everyone agreed, to hold a slumber party in the back of the restaurant. It begins as a harmless game which leads to more and more. Yet it didn't get too big until Astrid made a bold move. She dared [i Naiomi] to go on a date with Amy. [i Naiomi] is sickened with the idea and immediately asked if she was afraid in a teasingly way. This little bit of taunting works as she then accepts the dare. She goes undercover as a kitchen maid for the princess to get to know the other female better.
Amy Marie Vlanderson is one of the most well known Icians. Most know her through the heinous crimes she's committed. Well, the crimes she's been accused of doing anyways. No one has seen her commit them, but they believe the Mighty King Davis. Davis would never tell a lie, right? Even when accusing his own daughter of things like genocide, mass rape, and theft of precious heirlooms. Because of this Amy doesn't have a lot of people she calls 'friend'. There is a small handful and that's including her mother, sister, and daughter.
One day she gets a message from her knight saying that a red haired woman wants to be her kitchen maid. Despite being a princess all of the maids in the castle don't work for her. They make sure to disappear if she's ever around. Amy accepts this new girl in and is quick to give her many tasks. These tasks include but are not limited to: Cooking her meals, cleaning the dinning room after meal time, giving her a back massage, preparing the bath, and even bathing with her. It is to note that Amy eats a lot of food for each meal. Each meal would be the size of a banquet. Not to mention she eats seven times a day. Cooking alone for her would be hell. She, however, doesn't persist if [i Naiomi] says 'no' to something too many times.

[center[+red "Wait! Hold up! My armor is heavy!"]
[+red "Astrid? Is that your name?"]
[+red "Is everything alright?"]
Astrid gritted her teeth as she heard Mike's voice, it tortured her, pierced her heart... or rather what was left of it...Astrid tried to ignore Mike's calls for her to wait, just like he had done to her, like Joy did to her... Both of them betrayed her.. Abandoned her, but why couldn't she feel anger towards them... Why could she only feel anger towards herself... Why did she keep thinking it was her fault that Joy ignored her that day, her fault that Joy turned away from her when she cried for her after she lost the fight....
Her fault that she wasn't fast enough to stop Mike from jumping over the edge... just a little faster and she would've caught him.. caught his hand and pulled him up and held him close, telling him it would be okay and she wouldn't let anyone scorn him, or make him cry again without paying for it... But she was too late... After she searched for him for a long time in that lake until her life force was fatally low.. All she had to hold was herself, trying to heighten her life force up again.. but when she was strong enough to stand she was still weak but she walked into the Ician kingdom to start a new life..
A life were she had nothing to protect.. during that life as a young kitten, she didn't care about anyone, especially not the rich, so she stole from everyone, even the witch she was taught the forbidden. She made the mistake of robbing the woman, who caught her red handed and was about to use her magic to chop of her hands to teach her a lesson.., without fear in her eyes.. or rather the dead expression and the lack of will to survive.. Stop the woman from hurting Astrid and took her in as her own and even taught her the forbidden fire spell...
Until the woman died of old age. Shortly after she met Joy as a young noble girl, even when the old woman gone, Astrid still had a friend to live for and soon after that friendship let something a lot more to Astrid...
Though even that didn't go as she wanted even Joy got taken from her along with her eye, which didn't hurt as much as the abandonment she felt as Joy turned away from her after the fight, she felt such agony not from her eye but from her heart as she felt it get crushed... She screamed Joy's name over and over again reaching her hand to her, begging the new Ician queen to look at her, the way she screamed it was like white scorching agony....
Joy gave her the worst pain she ever felt... maybe death from Davis's sword would've been a lot more kinder, more merciful.. because the pain would stop when she was dead... but the agony still lingers while she still lives and Davis might have thought that might have been the best way to inflict pain on her, which was let the person she loved most to inflict it on her instead of him...
Even now, whenever she had spoke to Joy, seen her face, heard her voice and felt her touch stroking her cheeks from the tears she shed, her heart was screaming in agony, in such scorching agony... She wanted to cry all over again, but she still loved everything about Joy, wanted the torture that be brought being in the Ician's presence because it was worth it to her..
Even if she were to get beaten down again by Davis if he ever knew she was here, she would crawl or even worm herself across the floor to keep fighting and even if Joy told either to stop.. she wouldn't not until she's dead or she won the fight because she wouldn't be able to bare the pain again to be cast away by Joy, she couldn't bare that again...... Even if she still had Valerie to look after, the one person who didn't turn away, or jump of a bridge.. in fact she was the one who was going to jump.. but she decided not to once she saw Valerie there crying her little heart out near the bridge....
Valerie reminded her of herself when she lost Mike..., the big brother, who she would've fought the world to protect since he was more of a little brother more than a big brother..... It was the very first time.. she ever cried out of sadness.. she never cried when other kids beat her because she protected Mike.. her will to protect him kept forcing her up, to be strong and fight back until she was beaten into unconsciousness or she won..She never cried while she had someone to protect...
Even now; she wouldn't cry a second time.. she kept them in so Valerie wouldn't see how Mike was effecting her emotionally, nor would she know who he was to her until further notice.. but she and Valerie stopped when Mike seemed to catch up and stop the too of them with his voice.. His voice alone.. made Astrid want to tear her ears off, so she wouldn't hear the torture anymore but instead she sucked in her lower lip slightly before letting it go and opening her mouth to answer the boy...
[+DARKRED " Yes my name is Astrid and everything is perfectly fine Mike, Now if you excuse us... we have a restaurant to run, you may come along with her highness if you wish, since she told me you are her adopted son and also if you wish you can come to our bed and breakfast also and bring along any guests you like.... Now if you'll excuse us my dear we need to be off. Come on Valerie.. "]
Astrid explained/stated in a blunt tone even though if she sounded so cold or blunt towards the boy, she didn't dare turn around to face him nor look towards her sister that she adopted so long ago, she looked straight ahead without a single tear in her eyes, like if she had shut down all her emotions just to get through the door...
Once she finished talking to began to walk again like if she was a solider but a elegant one.. Valerie hesitated to follow Astrid but she eventually but not without looking back at Mike, who seemed distraught at the way Astrid put; Valerie gave him apologetic expression before following after Astrid after the older woman called her name once more.... Then they were gone.. Heading towards the restaurant.
[#0C6991 "I'm sure everything will be fine. It's just a little bumpy it would seem,"]
[#0C6991 "I think it is quite clear what I'm going to do tonight. Anyone else have the same idea?"][+blue "Umm... Can I read your mind?"][#0C6991
"Dear. That would be cheating. Besides. I'd have to tickle you if you did that,"] [#0C6991
"I was thinking about Astrid's invitation. Her restaurant is quite cute. I've got nothing better to do. All the paperwork has been completed," ]
[+blue "How many of us are going?"]
[#0C6991 "Well... Some of the maids might come. I want you and Naiomi to come. I just think it will be nice to get out of this crummy castle every now and then,"]
[+blue "Yeah.. Because I've never went anywhere,"][#0C6991 "That's adorable,"]
Naiomi was in a world of her own, inside her head. She was wondering what it could have been to cause Astrid to act like she did towards that young red head boy... Naiomi had never seen her act that way ever and it had come to be a shock towards her and of course Valerie, who hadn't seen someone effect her sister in such a way either, though soon Naiomi was brought out of her thoughts by something sitting on her lap, causing the red head to blink and look slightly down at what Queen Joy thought was so cute...
The sight caused Naiomi's face to turn a raspberry pink... A-Amy was laying down in her lap and she didn't even notice the weight of the young woman feminine features weigh down on her, maybe it was because she could lift ten times her weight, that wasn't the issue the issue was that Amy was there in the first place, at first thought Naiomi thought she should tell Amy that she wasn't a child and should get off her lap because her chest was heavy on her lap, even though it was a complete lie....
They actually felt rather nice on her lap, it was having two soft cushions with a cool temperature on her lap, though she wasn't going to tell Amy that because the Ician princess might tease her for it and so she acted like she didn't notice the fact that Amy moved on her lap. Tell a lie... Naiomi actually faintly reached for Amy's back or hair to give her more comfort but before she could muster the courage to plant her hand on Amy.. Amy and Queen Joy spoke again causing Naiomi's hand to jump slightly in fright and retreat back to her side and made her remain still as she listen to the both of them.
[+blue "Oh.. umm.. I'll get ready to go. What time are we leaving, mom?"]
[#0C6991 "Hmm... Tonight. I'll let you all know when we shall leave,"]
Once Amy was off Naiomi's lap the redhead missed the feeling of the Ician girl on her lap though she didn't vocally and mentally pouted in embarrassment that she was starting to become like a school girl with a crush inside and that crush was Amy.. to much as she admitted to herself mentally...Yes she admitted to herself she liked Amy in more than just friendly attraction but she needed time to make sure it was more, maybe some work at the restaurant could help her think, though she would have to ask Joy if she could be dismissed for today but as she opened her mouth Joy spoke first, causing Naiomi's lips to close shut again as listened to what the queen had to say.
[#0C6991 "Why don't you relax, Naiomi. Take the day off. I'm sure Amy is going to be in her room for a while," "I'll be double checking to make sure I've got all my duties finished. You are free to do as you please,"]
Naiomi was slightly unnerved because Joy seemed slightly distraught just like Astrid was more the oldest redhead seemed a lot more than just distraught.. though she didn't think it was her place to ask the queen on her private life and so she opened her mouth to thank her highness and decided to be of towards the restaurant.
[+Red "Thank you your majesty.. We'll all look forwards to seeing your family at the restaurant tonight, though I think Astrid would be more than pleased. Good day your majesty."]
Naiomi bowed slightly to show the queen the respect she deserved and straightened herself back up as the eldest Ician woman in the castle walked away from her, leaving her to her own devices.. As she did leave Naiomi couldn't help but let her lips curve into a concerned expression before she turned to the direction Amy went to...
She needed time away from Amy to think, so it wasn't the time to go after her so instead Naiomi walked to the direction of the front door of the castle until she was approached by a maid and not just any maid a half breed between a Ician and the beings that lived to prevent dark beings from coming out of the dark forest...
[#0269cf "You must be, Naiomi. You are human, right? Why don't you feel human?"]
[#0269cf "I can tell you are special. Hmm... Where did you come from?"]
Naiomi turned her head to the side in the direction of the girl coming towards her and listened to her as she spoke, the first and second question was easy to answer but the special comment was confusing as well as where she came from... Her parents told her she was adopted by them from abusive people...
so where she came from she no idea but it didn't matter because she had an loving family who loved her and she loved them back but her family didn't last because the Ician that they served before ate them along with her baby sister...
Soon Naiomi opened her mouth to answer the girl truthfully and quickly so she could be on her away towards the restaurant, so she could help Astrid with whatever she needed.
[+red " I am a human, but the reason you feel that I'm not a human is because I have traits of different species... Special? I guess that's one positive word for my weird body.. I was adopted by my family, so I don't know where I come from.. Now lets see. You're half breed between a Ician and one of those beings of light right? those to protect the border of the dark forest?, since you know my name I think it would be fair if I knew yours?.."]
Naiomi stated in a matter of fact tone as she stated she was human and there wasn't any denying it that she wasn't or so she believed, Then she explained how her claim of being human was confusing if the girl could sense that she was a different being all together, In her head her traits covered the fact she was indeed human and other species with high sensitive of sensing things got confused on what species she was or so Naiomi thought also.
Then finally answered the young girl's last question about her, which was where did she come from?, which was easy enough because she didn't know but she did know that she was adopted into a family that loved her and that was enough for her, soon Naiomi asked her own questions and after if the girl answered her or not.. Naiomi invited the Half breed girl to the restaurant tonight since Astrid and Valerie must have invited people why not herself, so she did.. Once she did that she gave the girl a cheesy grin and walked away as she put her hand up to wave goodbye as she walked towards the front of the castle and headed towards the restaurant.

Mike expressed both confusion and worry for the events that just took place. He questioned why the woman in the eye patch looked familiar. He also thought to himself why she called him by a different last name. Out of instinct she ran after the two Nekoblazikens sisters. He shouted to Astrid, [#e0270b [b "Wait! Hold up! My armor is heavy!"]] Which was true. Because of his armor he couldn't run long distances without getting exhausted. [#e0270b [b "Hey.."]] he panted. Once he caught up he asked the redheaded woman with the eyepatch, [#e0270b [b "Astrid? Is that your name?"]] He didn't seem sure of himself. Something felt familiar in that woman, but other than that he couldn't recall ever meeting her. Not in this life at least. He felt compelled to know more about her. So he could quell this feeling. [#e0270b [b "Is everything alright?"]] he asked. He smiled shyly. The faint smile held a particular warmth and honesty.

[#0C6991 [b "I'm sure everything will be fine. It's just a little bumpy it would seem,"]] she spoke. The woman sipped at her tea in a calm manner. [#0C6991 [b "I think it is quite clear what I'm going to do tonight. Anyone else have the same idea?"]] she asked. Amy tilted her head. [+blue [b "Umm... Can I read your mind?"]] she asked her mother. Joy frowned and shook her head. [#0C6991 [b "Dear. That would be cheating. Besides. I'd have to tickle you if you did that,"]] she replied. The mother gave her daughter a small kiss on the cheek. In which Amy's face turned bright red. She also went quiet. [#0C6991 [b "I was thinking about Astrid's invitation. Her restaurant is quite cute. I've got nothing better to do. All the paperwork has been completed,"]] Joy explained.
Amy smiled faintly. [+blue [b "How many of us are going?"]] she asked. At this point she assumed that Joy would bring more than just one or two people. [#0C6991 [b "Well... Some of the maids might come. I want you and Naiomi to come. I just think it will be nice to get out of this crummy castle every now and then,"]] Joy chuckled. Amy began to sweat a little. [+blue [b "Yeah.. Because I've never went anywhere,"]] she spoke. Without her paying any mind the blue haired girl had climbed onto Naiomi's lap and curled up. [#0C6991 [b "That's adorable,"]] Joy giggled. This triggered Amy's attention back to reality. [+blue [b "Oh... umm.. I'll get ready to go. What time are we leaving, mom?"]] she asked, hoping Naiomi wouldn't pay attention. [#0C6991 [b "Hmm... Tonight. I'll let you all know when we shall leave,"]] Joy tried not to smile, but the scene before her was simply too cute. Amy crawled off of Naiomi and rushed into her bedroom.

[+blue [b "As fun as that was I think I'm going to stay in this room for a while,"]] she spoke to herself. She packed a few things into a luggage bag. As she did so she heard a voice whisper into her ear. [#030363 [i "When can I leave this place? I'm getting bored,"]] the voice spoke to her mind. Amy shook her head. [+blue [i "Not yet, Yma. Only when I am not here. Okay? I don't want anyone to know about you. I especially don't want to tell Naiomi,"]] Amy replied via telepathy. She was speaking to someone far off. Someone she called Yma. Amy continued to stay in her room for some time.
Joy felt a bit conflicted. [#0C6991 [b "Why don't you relax, Naiomi. Take the day off. I'm sure Amy is going to be in her room for a while,"]] she spoke. The queen finished her tea and rose to her feet. [#0C6991 [b "I'll be double checking to make sure I've got all my duties finished. You are free to do as you please,"]] she added. Joy slowly walked away, leaving Naiomi by herself.

She smiled to the redhead. [#0269cf [b "I can tell you are special. Hmm... Where did you come from?"]] she spoke. She had some curiosity in Naiomi.
[i OOC: Sorry....]
[center [#0C6991 "Did anything new or exciting happen today?"]
The room was silent at Joy's question. Astrid was quiet with a smile across her lips because she didn't have to tell Joy what she did today because the Ician queen had her company all to herself even though she had to share it with the other members of the castle when they started to give Astrid gratitude for making Joy happier than she's been in a while and started to ask question after question about the fire neko's life and lifestyle until the Ician queen started to pull her away discreetly from the small crowd...
The thought of it caused Astrid to smirk slightly as she lifted the tea to her lips, thinking what if she were to ask Joy why was she tugging her back then, the image of the Ician woman's face of embarrassment caused Astrid smirk to grow bigger but even though she had urges to ask the Ician queen that she refrained from doing so, until they where alone again because she didn't want Joy's children or anyone else to tease the Ician woman and cause her to be more embarrassed, only because she wanted that expression on Joy's face to only be seen by her and her alone..
With that thought in mind she choose not to ask Joy and started to sip the tea that the Ician woman kindly made for her, as she took a sip, she noticed that it wasn't cows milk that most people made it with and it causing it to taste wrong... it was the same taste from when she and Joy where younger, it was fantastic though it caused Astrid to wonder what Joy had always put in it to make it taste so good..
Astrid turned her eyes to Joy to ask her that question but that blush on the woman's face and the slight mess on the counter that gave off a raw smell that Astrid knew she shouldn't think so... but it smelt more divine than the tea itself.. Her own cheeks flared up with a blush slightly at the realisation what she had drank with Joy in the past and now.. The milk wasn't cow milk.. It was Joy's milk, why didn't she notice before because she knew everything about Joy's scent and about all kinds of milk..
This had Joy's scent all over it and the milk had a sweeter taste than cow milk, so all this time she thought it was soy milk and the scent of Joy was simply because Joy held the cup before giving it to her.. Now she realised; Astrid couldn't help feel a 'switch' turn on in her being as her eyes turned darker because the 'switch' had taken most of the light power and it caused her to want to drink the tea more now.. just not in the innocent way she had always been with it, thinking was Joy doing this to her on purpose...
No... it was a Ician's way of making royal tea most likely because she shared the same tea with the rest of them, which caused Astrid to feel jealous because to her the tea thing was only hers and Joy's and shouldn't be shared unless the Ician woman used another type of milk.. Though now Astrid knew she couldn't do anything about it, since Naiomi and Amy had already started to drink theirs, in a more innocent way than Astrid was, So Astrid started to drink the tea, as the liquid started to go down her throat and into her system it caused Astrid feel hotter as the knowledge of the milk being Joy's.
Now Astrid won't see Joy's royal tea the same way again and she became more switched on as she continued to drink it but kept her not so innocent actions towards the tea discreet if not unnoticeable as she began to lick out the liquid from the sides with her rough cat tongue.
Meanwhile Naiomi was quiet because she didn't to tell anyone about her day with Amy because it wasn't pleasant in Mika's room and would refrain from talking about it, so she started to drink her own tea as if she never heard the question in the first place, if Amy answered her mother that was her decision on the matter...
Soon the room was awkwardly silent to the point it wasn't comfortable they where all unaware except the queen that Valerie was outside the room until she came in and started talking to Astrid and Naiomi about her day, leaving out how she felt towards the purple haired girl and the half Ican maid.. both of them made Valerie feel very strange, but she mentally shuck the thought out of her head and then asked Joy for tea that was immediately in front of her in the air as she sat down, causing the younger fire Neko to say her thanks to the Ician queen and start to drink it innocently like Naiomi and Amy, unware her sister was having not so innocent thoughts.
[#0C6991 "Poor Mike and Ashley. I'll have to tell the guards they can let them in,"]
Astrid knew that Joy had the power to read minds and send messages through to another person by sending brain waves towards them and could even see through the whole castle with her minds eye to find out where people were if she needed to find them, though even if Astrid knew this Naiomi and Valerie were amazed of the powers of an Ician and turned their attention from their tea and to the woman that seemed to be concentrating on commutating with her once adopted son and the guards, so since they didn't want to unfocus her they went on drinking their tea and having small conversation with Amy and Astrid instead until they heard a booming sound of armour clashing against the floor coming towards the kitchen, causing everyone to turn to the direction of the noise and wonder what was making it, soon they didn't have to wonder anymore because a boy rushed in and happily shouted Amy's name..
The sight of the sight of the young red head boy and his voice caused Astrid to spit the tea in her mouth back into the cup... It can't be...but the male was a spitting image of him except from the missing cat ears and tail, the way he enthusiastically called Amy's name caused Astrid to remember how... Her big brother Mike, who seemed like a little brother used to call her after she came home from school, or came back from anywhere she was out, or the other way around...
It can't be him...but the lady of resurrection would have resurrected him the moment he died in the Ician river.. after he jumped to end his life, if it was him... then why didn't he look for her, why didn't he give her any sign that he was alive and well again, after he died she was lost.. she only seemed strong and unbreakable because she had him to protect... She almost died herself by jumping in after him to save him from the icy depths.. but she failed.. her life source was almost gone when she on the shore again, exhausted and cold.. Any longer in that water she would have froze to death..
She ran away far away towards the Ician kingdom on the other side of the bridge that her brother jumped off after she was strong enough because she didn't want to go home to a family that caused her big brother to.. and that's was when she started to steal for a living....
Astrid didn't understand why he would just forget about her, she felt betrayed and started to feel angry, upset and other negative emotions that overpowered the thoughts she had before about the tea, she had forgotten about the tea for a moment now and it even started to slowly heat up as she remained quiet gazing down into nothing in particular so she wouldn't have to look at Mike anymore, because she knew it was her brother... He sound the same, he smelt the same, he looked the same except without the cat features, his personality was the same and even his name was the same...
There was no doubt about it that this Mike was her big brother, who abandoned her when she needed him to the most by letting himself get consumed by his grief.... No she shouldn't feel this way...her brother couldn't live as a male Nekoblazkikin anymore so he killed himself... but why.. even with that reasonable fact.. why did she feel so betrayed by him, why did she feel the only person that she had any announce love of for even family love had betrayed her except from Valerie..., She couldn't help it and it grew as time went on and the tea slowly continued to heat up..
[+blue "Hey, Mike. Glad you could show up,"]
[+blue "This is Mike. He's the goofiest knight you'll ever meet,"][#0C6991 "Astrid. Naiomi. This cute redhead is my son, Mike. He might no longer live here like a son, but he'll always be one in my heart,"]
[#0C6991 "He can be shy at times,"]
Valerie smiled and greeted the young male with fondness and even giggled at the boy as he got called the goofiest knight they'll ever meet, which seemed true as the red head boy started to turn red in the face at Amy's introduction, while Naiomi just stared at him feeling a jealous urge go through her like a shot because of the attention that Amy was giving the boy but she kept her emotions unreadable like she was daydreaming. While Astrid was staring down at her cup that was still heating up and raising slightly like she was in a daze, but it wasn't out of jealousy it was out feeling abandoned and anger...
Until Joy's voice caused them both to blink and made Naiomi greet the boy also fondly as she thought that Mike was just Amy's friend but not as much as Valerie though since some jealousy still remained.
Astrid gazed at the red head boy in the corner of her eyes with a unreadable expression before she leant herself back against her chair and a gave a very light smile because that was all she could do but before she could greet the boy he ran away embarrassed by Joy's words and at the end of Joy's explanation, Astrid mentally commented that Mike had always been shy.. even when he was alive with her, the shyness of the boy only confirmed it more that he was Astrid's big brother, which caused the fire Neko to grit her teeth with her mouth, but she tried to enjoy the rest of her tea...
Though soon Mike soon came back as fast as he went..but he tripped and almost fall on his face, causing Astrid to immediately lift her neck up a little to see if the boy was alright because she was always protective of him when he was a Nekoblazkikin... Though as she realised this she sat back down and started to hold her cup again as Joy spoke up, leaving Amy to sort Mike.
[#0C6991 I guess our redheaded guests get to see our Mike up close and personal. Let him cool off a bit before asking him any personal questions,"]
Valerie seemed the most curious about the boy since his being scent was nothing like she smelt before, it was impossible for her to figure out what he was and would like to ask him what race was he was, while Naiomi was interested in the boy because she wanted to know what sort of relationship he had with Amy because of the cosiness they were having before but they both decided to wait until Mike cold down from his embarrassment by washing his face at the sink..
Though Astrid got up and had already walked over towards Mike as he was washing his face, she got him a towel discreetly built up the courage to speak as she was behind him before she decided to speak as she planted the dry face towel next to him, her emotions were still mixed but she had to make sure he was her brother and she was stressing out over nothing, so she opened her mouth faintly and forced out words...
[+darkred "Mike...M..Mike Nightingale?.."]
Astrid muttered as she tried to control her emotions but her control was failing, causing her to heat up herself and continued to do so as Mike turned around to face her with a stunned expression, that expression caused Astrid to know all she needed to know and her lip quivered before she gritted her teeth to keep it still as she opened her mouth again.
[+Darkred "S..So it is you then... big brother..."]
Astrid gritted through her teeth as tears started to pour out her eye, she was so hurt, so angry with Mike, how he committed suicide even if it was a reasonable end because he couldn't live as a male fire neko anymore.. but made her feel it the most was how he didn't come to find her, he didn't show her a sign that he was okay and alive.. and the feeling of abandonment was more hurtful than anything feeling she could feel. She could feel her fire burning within side her, her anger wanted to slap Mike.. but he was a child compared to her now and he was Joy's adopted son, So all she could do was turn around and walk towards the kitchen door before calling to Valerie they will be leaving now, because if she didn't leave she wouldn't be able to control her emotions or actions..
[+Darkred " Thank you for your hospitality your highness's but Valerie and I are leaving now, My invitation to our restaurant tonight still stands your majesty. You may bring whomever you wish and stay the night at our bed and breakfast if you wish... But I'm afraid that we must go now..."]
Astrid started to quick pace towards the kitchen door as she spoke, causing everyone to become confused of Astrid's behaviour though Astrid was too distraught to care.. and she knew if she gazed at Joy's face now the expression alone would make her stay, so she gave no eye contact to the Ician woman she so adored as she spoke to her about the invitation she gave Joy to come to her restaurant and B&B.. Astrid stopped at the door and raised her voice as she called for Valerie just by her name since she couldn't hear foot steps, soon she did and heard Valerie thank Joy for her generosity and hoped to see them that night at their restaurant before running after her sister who was acting quiet strangely.
Astrid continued to walk as she heard running footsteps, they both walked towards the entrance of the castle in silence because Valerie knew it was better not to ask Astrid what was wrong when she was in a mood, so she left it until Astrid calm down..
Meanwhile in back in the kitchen Naiomi was confused as hell, she blinked and wondered did that just really happen?.. before opening her mouth to ask the question.
[+red " Just what in the hell was that about? "]
Naiomi asked no one in particular as she turned her head towards the direction that the two fire neko sister's went in not really waiting for an answer but was wondering about the answer and would like an answer, so she waited for one...-
Meanwhile back with Astrid; tears ran town her cheek but lucky her hair was in the way, hiding her tears from everyone except herself as she started to remember that day that Mike jumped to his death and left her all alone...
[b [+darkred " Mike! Stop running!. Slow down!... Mike Stop! "]
A little Astrid ran after her brother as their parents where cruel to him again because he was a male fire neko a outcast flaw of their race. It had been thw straw they had kicked Jim out the house, even though she defended her big brother, he ran away in his grief of being casted out from the family...
Astrid followed him, chasing him through the streets, over roads filled with cars that could have ran them over but because of their reflexs they dodged and went through every one until... they got to Ician bridge, which was called that half of the water was freezing and that was the way to the Ician kingdom while the other was Nekoblazkikin kingdom... There was only one way to kill a Fire neko it was to freeze to death.. and that's what Mike intended...
As they got near the bridge; Mike climbed the wall and gazed down at icy depths that would him a chance to live as something different, anything was better than a male fire neko to him but to Astrid.. she only saw her brother had lost the will to live.. Astrid ran to him to stop him, shouting to him not to jump.. but he did just as Astrid was going to grab him... the tips of their fingers touched as Astrid leant over the ledge to catch him.... but she was too late.. it was like her mind was slowing down time as her brother fell down into the water and the splash caused time to quicken again...
Also caused Astrid to jump after him without hesitation to save him, it felt like death was around her.. cold and bitter death as it started her life source that was her fire as she began to look for Mike while moving to keep herself warm as she could, she dived in and out the water, called his name over and over to see if he would come up uo the surface but he never did, so in the end she got to the warmer end that was the fire neko's side of the bridge to get warm again and at that point she was lost...
when she got most of her strength back she decided to go to the Ician kingdom because nobody knew her there..and she didn't wish to go to parents that caused a sweet boy to kill himself and that was the day her life of stealing began...]
The sound of her own calls for Mike and telling him to stop running, the way she failed to catch Mike caused more tears to roll down her eyes discreetly as she walked in the direction of the castles entrance so she could try to come to terms with the fact that Mike had been ressurected and not even given her a sign of it at least... Astrid knew it would be a very long time once she gets to terms with it to the point Astrid didn't know how long it would take.... only time could tell...
[b Maybe Joy could go after Astrid and Valerie or Mike could before they leave or we can let them go and I'll edit this a little saying they get in their fxed truck or walk home? ]
The maid accepted Valerie's help and rose to her feet. While she didn't plan on introducing herself outloud, her name is Aurora. [#0269cf [b "It's alright,"]] she spoke. She smiled at the Nekoblaziken. She showed no sign of it, but she was worried her body would be burned or melted by the Fire Cat. [#0269cf [b "The queen and eldest princess are in the kitchen. The others told me you were looking for your sister? She's also in there. Along with a human with red hair,"]] Aurora spoke. She didn't seem concerned with using names at all. Her Ician traits were ever so clear in her blue hair and pale skin. But something about her didn't feel right. Her skin radiated warmth. She brushed her hair behind her ears revealing pointy ears. Her skin held a hint of pink, suggesting she might be related to Starians. Her body curtsied towards the other woman. Her mind was a buzz with untold fears. She smiled and said her goodbye to the other female.

Joy gave everyone a cup full of her Royal Tea. Her cheeks blushed bright red as she did this. She'd never shared this often since it was made of her own milk. Eventually they returned to normal upon sitting down at the table. [#0C6991 [b "Did anything new or exciting happen today?"]] Joy asked. Her eyes scanned the kitchen. Sometimes the room was used to eat if the group was small enough. Upon closing her eyes she reached out a mental vision of the entire castle. It wasn't difficult to spot Valerie. [#0C6991 [i "Why don't you join us, child?"]] Joy sent a telepathic message. An extra cup of tea floated out of the kitchen. It continued until it reached Valerie, to where it stayed suspended in the air. [#0C6991 [b "Poor Mike and Ashley. I'll have to tell the guards they can let them in,"]] Joy spoke. She sent out another telepathic message, but to the guards this time.
[center _ - _ - _ - _]

Mike and Ashley cheered with glee at the news given to them by the guards. [#e0270b [b "You can run straight to May's room. I'll bring in these heavy bags. I'm glad Joy's always looking out for us,"]] the brother spoke. Ashley didn't hesitate to run inside. Her brother knew her destination would be May's room regardless of what he had said. Mike picked up the three bags. His super strength allowed him to carry the total weight of two hundred pounds. He staggered in through the main hall. He had to take a break. A part of him was disappointed that Amy wasn't there to greet him. He sighed softly. [#e0270b [i "I'll just look for her. She'll obviously be in the kitchen since she eats so much,"]] he thought to himself. Mike entered the kitchen. Just as he thought there was Amy. It was true though that she spent a lot of time there. [#e0270b [b "AMY!!!"]] Mike shouted. He ran up to her and gave her a big hug. With his fast stride and heavy armor he had enough force to knock his friend over. Amy laughed after she was knocked onto the floor. Mike's face turned bright red in this sensitive position and got up straight away. He couldn't look anyone in the either, rather he stared down at the floor.
[+blue [b "Hey, Mike. Glad you could show up,"]] Amy spoke. She got up and dusted her clothing. She turned to the others at the table. [+blue [b "This is Mike. He's the goofiest knight you'll ever meet,"]] she spoke. Mike only blushed further due to that sort of introduction. His lips quivered as he tried to speak, but nothing came to mind to say. [#0C6991 [b "Astrid. Naiomi. This cute redhead is my son, Mike. He might no longer live her like a son, but he'll always be one in my heart,"]] Joy's voice boasted great cheer for the male. Mike put up his hands to cover his face. He couldn't contain himself nor was he prepared for such attention. The boy bolted out of the kitchen quickly. He'd use the physical labor of carrying the heavy bags to May's room as a distraction. [#0C6991 [b "He can be shy at times,"]] Joy giggled. Amy also joined in the giggling.
[center _ - _ - _ - _]
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/Hk6EuZ6.jpg?1]] Ashley kept running by until she got to her destination. She knocked at the bedroom door, her face full of delight. May opened the door, letting her friend in. The two embraced each other in a warm hug. When they went to hug one another something went amiss. Ashley tripped over her feet and pushed May onto the floor. May seemed a bit dazed from the fall. Ashley's lips and May's lips had also been pressed up against each other. They couldn't move. The two girls blushed so brightly, May more so due to her Ician heritage. Mike walked in just moments later to see his sister on top of May. His face turned bright red. Again. The boy ran away, leaving the bags right outside the door. Neither female noticed his presence. Ashley pulled away. The two noticed a trail of spit connecting to their mouths. Both didn't know how to respond to this. They stood up and wiped their mouths.
[#943a0a [b "I'm sorry, May,"]] Ashley sounded as if she was about to cry. May gave her friend a gentle hug. [#04B3AD [b "It's okay, Ashley-chan. I know you didn't mean it. It was an accident,"]] she replied. A part of the Ician child enjoyed that kiss. She hid her face away from the other female by keeping the hug persistent until it vanished from her face. May's second puberty was drawing closer. Strange thoughts often entered her mind, but she didn't choose to deny she had those feelings to begin with. She had a feeling that her friend wasn't into girls so she never spoke about such things. [#04B3AD [b "How about we start having some fun, okay? What do you want to do first?"]] May asked after releasing from the hug. Thus the sleepover began. May carried in the bags with ease. She placed them in the far corner. She locked the door afterwards so that they may both enjoy a fun time together. Just the two of them.
[center _ - _ - _ - _]
The kitchen returned to as it was before Mike had bursted in. Calm, for the most part. But his return happened rather quickly. He stumbled and tripped into the kitchen. Amy asked if he was okay. The boy nodded silently. Amy and Joy seemed to both carry a carefree happiness with the boy around. [#0C6991 [b "I guess our redheaded guests get to see our Mike up close and personal. Let him cool off a bit before asking him any personal questions,"]] Joy advised.

Her thoughts went towards a woman she saw briefly. [#241E1E [b "That Nekoblaziken kept looking at me funny. I hope she doesn't know my plans. I'd have to kill anyone who gets in my way. I promised him I'd do a good job. I won't let him down,"]] Jess whispered to herself. It was quiet in the guest room besides the little rants the girl had to herself. Outloud she planned how she'd poison Amy and steal her soul once the Ician died. Her body was too exhausted to even clean herself. She'd kill her target tomorrow after room service.

"Not this post, but a future one I plan on having some flashbacks."
As Astrid and Joy walked into the castle again; Astrid's nerves started to rise because they were still holding hands, not that she minded in fact she was rather happy they were but the thought of the other members of the castle seeing them hand in hand, they could tell they had seen this act of skin to skin contact between their Queen and a strange woman, the thought caused Astrid to slightly bite inside her cheek and become worried that other members of the castle might spread the news about the two women and get to higher ears... Meaning Davis's...
The thought of Davis getting even a small fraction of her being in his castle made her hand twitch in Joy's hand thinking she should let go before anyone sees them, but her desire not to was overpowering and of course she didn't want to alert Joy and ruin their day together...So against her best interests she gave Joy's hand a gentle squeeze to stop her own from twitching and showing distress, though soon the distress turned into embarrassment as they were greeted by members of the staff.
They thanked her for bringing a smile to their Queens face and stated they hadn't seen her this happy ever since most if not all of them had worked there, the embracement crept up onto Astrid's skin, causing the slight fur she had and the ends of her hair to stick up on end, before she opened her mouth as she smiled faintly and quiet nervously as she had apptempt to control the situation.
She told them it was a honour to be in her majesties presence and to have her own presence to be so effective on the Queen was a pleasant bonus, as she and the members of staff got talking, or rather they talked o her and she did her best to answer what she would and comment on what she could until Joy started pulling at her arm discreetly so only she would notice, as Joy interrupted the conversation by stating they must be off now in the cool and composed nature of a queen...
Though that tugging.. it wasn't in a Ician's nature to be possessive. Flirty and quiet sexually attached yes but not like this, this was more of Nekoblazkikin trait, Astrid's race was known to be possessive of their partner and highly protective of their young, Then again Joy always got jealous when Astrid paid attention to something more than her when they there younger, when got a new doll or child toy and showed it to Astrid, Astrid was always in aw because she never had the luxury of things Joy had and that was why her main goal suppose to rob her but that soon turned to blossoming friendship and attachment.
When Joy got a puppy Astrid was cooing and mothering it so much that Joy got so jealous that she started whimpering like a puppy and went over to Astrid and nuzzled on her to get her attention, which she immediately got from a immediately red faced younger Astrid, who asked Joy 'W-What's the matter with you Ice for brains-' and that was when Joy licked her cheek with her icy cold tongue, causing the all the hairs of Astrid's body to stand on end, before she realised Joy was laying in her lap with the puppy to, Astrid soon calmed down from the strange behaviour of Joy and gazed down before stroking the young nobles hair before asking the young girl..
'you're jealous again aren't you Joy'
The young Fire Neko smirked slightly, causing the young Ician just to nuzzle into young Astrid's clothed stomach, causing her to shudder again not realising it was a good shudder, back then it was strange but equally strangely pleasant shudder and young Astrid didn't know why she felt like she had hot and cold butterflies in her stomach...After a while Astrid became to understand and know why she felt like that.
Now Astrid was getting tugged by Joy when she's queen and she doesn't remember Astrid, but something within her remembers, something within the now expected to be composed as a queen should to all except Astrid made the blue haired and icy skinned woman to be possessive and jealous, even if she was discreetly showing it or rather trying to hid it behind the excuse to save Astrid from the horde of people, the redhead Fire Neko would have bought it if it wasn't for the slight glint in the Ician woman's eyes and the way Joy's lips very faintly gone down before, during after being in the staff presences, Astrid didn't speak a word or ask Joy about her sudden change of behaviour.. but she couldn't help but let her lips lift into a small amused smirk as they made their way to the kitchen to make their tea that Joy insisted she was the one who made it, honestly who was Astrid to argue because it meant that she had more time to stare at Joy's loveliness.
That was what Astrid did, she sat on a chair with her tail swaying around in her pants, the sensitive tail soon came out because of the too much swaying and it begun to curly up and do back and front flips and rolled over and twisted every direction, went back to swaying and repeated the same odd pattern that soon looked like discreet and hidden behind her back odd love hearts as she observed Joy while within her throat she was purring lowly, wishing that Joy was laying against her at night rather than a man that's incapable of loving someone especially a jewel like Joy and she wished that Joy would make her tea always. Astrid would be tremendously happy if Joy always done tea only for her, she would never touch a cup for herself again if Joy was happy to make it.
Astrid was love struck in fact she had always been with way with Joy, it's just that she hadn't been in the woman's presence for a very long time and every part of her missed her so much..even her lips missed Joy's, they had given each other their first kiss when they were younger it was special to Astrid because she shared that moment with Joy despite it was only for the Ician woman to practice kissing for courtship and marriage they even touched each other innocent sensitive parts out of curiosity because they had never been touched.
Joy found out Astrid's lips were sensitive but her tail, ears were most sensitive and Astrid found out heat from Astrid's hands and Joy's ears made sweet moans come out of the Ician woman's lips and that was just from a gentle touch of finger tips..Astrid could only imagine what Joy would be like if her ears was in contact with a Nekoblazkin's mouth...It would probably bring out such delicious moans and make Joy feel she was going to melt, the thought of it caused Astrid to lick her lips slightly as her dark red eyes turned darker if possible with desire and want- No need to the point Astrid purring started getting deeper and lower ready to pounce on Joy and make her hers.. but Astrid was a good cat, she had to behave herself because Joy had a family and a husband..
A husband that didn't know how to love and neglecting his family and Joy..a husband that Joy and her daughters were better off without because a true father was a father figure that takes care of their family and their partner, Davis isn't doing any of theses things... maybe just maybe would Joy...No Joy probably wouldn't even consider leaving Davis even if she did she probably not fall for a Nekoblazkikin... Astrid was feeling mixed feelings from. Lust, desire and love for Joy. Anger with a passion and jealousy for Davis to the point she didn't know what was stronger, they seem to equal each other out until Joy decided to speak to her.
[#0C6991 "Would you like to try some of my Royal Tea?"]
Astrid's attention was at Joy's lips as the woman turned around to face her, so she only blanked out the first part of the question, which was ' would you like to' before Astrid realised those lips where talking, causing her to blink slightly and her eyes eventually but slowly go back to their normal colour as her cheeks became slightly dusted because she's been staring at Joy all this time and what was worse she was thinking inappropriate thoughts about the Ician woman to but luckily enough she heard the rest of the question, causing Astrid to open her mouth to speak, showing off little points of her teeth that got slightly bigger but was eventually going to their normal size from her thoughts and desires.
[+darkred " I do apologise your highness. I..I was daydreaming.. so I only got half what you said, I would love to have some Royal tea, actually it's my favourite. I only stated that earl grey was my favourite was because I can't seem to make Royal tea correctly and I've have tried others version of it but they didn't seem to make it right...
The last time I ever had it correctly as when I was a young teenager with my Ician friend I mentioned earlier, please don't be offended my dear if I tell you if there's something missing, ever since then there was always missing, maybe I just have a picky sense of taste but I have always wanted to taste it like that again...because even Royal tea made correctly would be enough for me to be close to her,.. a time when she promised she would never forget me no matter what happens..even it became a lie. The tea always makes me go back through my memories and believe it's true...
You must think for an adult Nekoblazkikin I'm childish to talk about tea in such high regards, I apologise your highness if I have ruined this should be pleasant time and turned it into a grim one, I seem to do that quiet a bit my dear.."]
Astrid immediately turned her head to the side to mainly keep her eyes away from Joy rather than the blush that creeping on her face as she apologised to Joy that she didn't get the whole question that the Ician woman asked because she was daydreaming and Astrid hoped that Joy wouldn't ask what she was daydreaming about... though even if Astrid had turned her eyes away from Joy her red eyes were still slightly darker than they are normally, surely as long as she kept her hands to herself nobody would blame her for looking at Joy with a bit more than desire.
To Astrid; Joy had beauty that a goddess should be envious of, she had lips so succulent and sweet that the golden apples of Olympus in Greece would be unsatisfying, skin so soft not even snow, silk or even satin could match it softness, her eyes are like flawless sapphires or a perfect sea blue that the love struck and desiring from a far fire Neko would happily sink into, Joy voice is so angelic that birds would stop singing and listen, even the proudest of angels would admit defeat and accept that Joy voice was better than theirs..
Even though Astrid thought all that about Joy. What makes Astrid so attached to Joy is her personality, she isn't like most Ician's..to the point that Astrid wouldn't have believed that Joy was a Ician if it wasn't for the hard times they shared when they were younger also..
When they were kids, Astrid came in through the young Ician's window as always to not alert Joy's parents and other members of the castle, Astrid thought this was going to be just a fun day like any other day.. but it wasn't.. when Astrid saw Joy her eyes widened in cold horror because Joy was chained to her bed with chains that sucked the super strength that Ician's have if they struggled the chains would only suck up more and get stronger so an Ician could never break free unless another person lets them free..
Astrid ran to Joy with tears in her eyes and cupped the young Ician's face with her arm hands, telling Joy that everything was alright and she was here.. of course Astrid knew what was happening to Joy she read all about it after becoming friends with the young Ician girl.. she was having a puberty a violent one, but what she couldn't understand was why wasn't anyone there with Joy in her darkest hour.. why wasn't the young Ician girls parents there..
At this frustration built up inside young Astrid, caused her to pull Joy forcefully in to a hug.. Astrid held Joy even though she got bitten, cursed and spat at by her friend.. but she knew this wasn't Joy this was her puberty a that was very dark and agonizing in both physical and emotional... Astrid had forgiven Joy in advance before Joy threw everything she could at the redhead.
After Joy's first Puberty Astrid encountered. The fire Neko had bits of flesh missing from her shoulders, her back scratched to bits and her heart was bruised because all the harsh things Joy said to her, but she forgave Joy for everything because it wasn't her it was her puberty making her do the things she done to the fire Neko, so Astrid forgave Joy for everything....
Though when Joy came to be her normal self again and realised what she done to Astrid, she wouldn't stop sobbing over her, telling Astrid she was sorry, Astrid's ears went down at the sight of the broken girl and sighed fondly before taking the distraught young Joy into a tight embrace, with her fingers through blue locks and the other hand around the girls back, telling her..'that it was alright..and she already forgiven Joy for everything because she knew it wasn't Joy acting like this. It was a puberty that the Ician race suffered with', Then Astrid let Joy cry it all out..
Though when she was done crying. Joy told Astrid to never come back while she was having a puberty because she didn't want to hurt her friend anymore.. Astrid wanted to protest and state it was alright if she got beaten up because she wanted to comfort Joy in her darkest hour, but since Joy felt so passionate about it..
Astrid didn't say anything and nodded with a distraught expression.. without verbally promising anything because she knew she would break her own promise if she made that promise to Joy and she never broke a promise to Joy and she wouldn't start now, so she made no such promise she would stay away and came every day like normal and helped Joy through her puberties because the Ician girls parents were always out but Astrid always got shouted at by Joy for not leaving her to her puberties and that's when Astrid lost it and forced Joy in a hug and told her why she always stayed here with Joy when she had her puberties it was nobody else was there helping Joy get through it and she couldn't be able to do anything but worry about Joy if she didn't help her....
Astrid explained all this as frustrated tears fell from her eyes and her words came out from gritted teeth, causing Joy to realise just how much she really hurt Astrid either way, they both held each other in the end and Joy accepted that Astrid could help her but made the young fire neko promise if Joy hurt her too much she must leave the young Ician alone... Astrid was hesitant with her promise but she made it..
Though the next puberty was something Astrid wasn't really emotionally ready for. It was in time when they where becoming teenagers with driving crazy hormones and when Ician's got to teenager stage they got more flirty and needy.. Astrid didn't expect it to be as effective as it was.. Astrid climbed through the window as always to not alert the parents or any of the other members if Joy's household except the girl herself.. Though once she saw Joy.. Her body was covered with blush that was red as her hair, she was so embarrassed by what she saw...
She saw... Joy chained to the bed like every puberty they fought together, but unlike the others Joy was moaning and trying to reach for her lower body to fund release.. Astrid knew what Joy was trying to do because she was beginning to become in heat herself just a few more days and she'll be like this.. all of it caused Astrid's to turn so red and she became so embarrassed that her head went on fire because she seriously didn't know what to do..
Until Joy saw her.., causing the Ician to pant out Astrid's name and pleaded her to help her as she tried to move her fingers to reach for the fire neko, causing Astrid to gulp nervously and walk over to Joy hestitately, not because she was afraid if Joy.. She was afraid of her own desires that were for Joy that was stirring up inside her, causing Astrid's eyes to turn darker with need but she had more control because she wasn't in heat yet, So being the good Nekoblazkikin and friend she wanted to be for Joy she laid by her side and held her close, Joy kept moaning and saying flirty things in Astrid's ear that she wanted to do with her, pleading Astrid to let her out the chains..
That brought the Nekoblazkikin's face to become like a cherry as she fought the thought of letting Joy go and letting her do those things to, it was hard to fight with cool breath at her throat and teeth and a tongue doing wonders to it that Astrid had to bit her lips hard to supress a mewl that she knew would come out and urge Hoy do more to her if she didn't, a part of her didn't want to suppress the mewl, it wanted Joy to do more to her, though another part of her knew she would taking advantage of Joy..
The Ician wasn't in her right state of mind to be set free.. if she was she wouldn't most likely find Astrid desirable and sweetly, hotly moan her name to get Astrid's attention like she was then, So she just held Joy doing her best to be a good friend to Joy and resist the temptation.
At the end of it all Joy apologised for her behaviour but again Astrid forgave the young Ician girl straight away but this time in a stuttering mess with slight bruises on her throat under her chin, which Astrid didn't allow Joy to see, So the Ician had to force her to show her the damage she caused and it caused the both of them to blush tremendously, there was silence until.. Joy started to kiss the damage better as she whispered her apology repeated despite Astrid already forgave her..
Astrid groaned slightly from the cool pleasure and sting of the damage as Joy did more wonders to her throat, while she tried to keep her primal traits to herself because the attention Joy was giving her it meant nothing because the Ician girl was just making the damage better right?.. so there was no need to get flustered but Astrid couldn't help but feel everything in not so innocent way..
After a while they had their first kiss to practice for marriage, Astrid was tremendously nervous because she had wondered what it would be like to feel those lips on hers, to the point she didn't do anything, she seemed she was against it or too nervous so Joy questioned Astrid if she didn't want to practice with her..The way Joy looked so hurt about that thought made Astrid blink slightly before catching what Joy said and shuck her head frantically. She stated it wasn't that it. It was just that she was very nervous and it was her first kiss while she explained this her body got redder with embarrassment...
At this Joy seemed to smile at her softly before taking Astrid face in her cold hands, causing the Nekoblazkikin's ears go down in nerves and she felt so vulnerable in Joy's hands all she could do was stare the young Joy's sapphire blue eyes as the Ician slowly and gently pulled Astrid's face towards her and whispered against her lips that she was nervous to and it was her first kiss, it was fine to give their first kisses to someone they care about.. so with that Joy pressed her mouth onto Astrid's, it was chaste at first a kiss so light that it seemed it wasn't there..
Until Joy moved her lips, ever since Joy had her teenager puberty she had grown more bold with Astrid, but there was no tongue in the kiss it was just a sweet kiss with lips rubbing against each other but Joy and Astrid soon realised Astrid was sensitive on her lips as it brought her to moan in a not so innocent way, causing them to stop and Astrid was in daze and even whimpered when the contact was gone.. but soon she came through and covering her mouth in embarrassment with her hands, they both were stunned of Astrid reaction.. but they didn't say anything about it and they started to do other things innocent things like Joy letting Astrid brush and style her hair and the Ician girl did it for her before giving her the family heirloom pendent as a gift to always remember their time together and had Royal tea together where Joy promised they would always.. be together Little she did she know that it would be the second to last time she would have the tea again with young Joy.. Until she was taken from her...
Then soon they started to get curious, Joy seemed so innocent asking if she could touch Astrid's ears and tail because she always wondered what they would feel like, Astrid didn't know what reaction it would bring but she doubted it would be any worse than the reaction she did when Joy only kissed her gently, so she allowed it under one condition she got to touch Joy's ears because she always wondered what Ician ears felt like.. Joy agreed to this not expecting the reaction that was she was going to give..
They both started together and what was the result was not so innocent moans that they muffled with their teeth over their lips because they were certain they would alert the other members of the household if they didn't, as soon as their moans appeared they pulled away from each other stunned at their reactions over a mere supposed to be innocent touches, they both tested their own places that was touched but they didn't react like they did before, their ears both felt they giving themselves a comfortable scratch on the ear, Astrid felt her tail but it felt like having it groomed, instead of a.. intense feeling.. so why did they react to each other like that..
Neither of them dared to ask the question because they where to embarrassed and felt feelings that weren't so innocent, eventually it all cooled down and they continued to enjoy each others company as always, like Joy letting Astrid brush her hair and style it, little did she know it was the second to last time she'll ever set foot in young room..
After a month or two; Astrid was going to get told some news that she wished to hear because it caused her to break her promise to Joy.., It was the day Astrid felt strongly enough for Joy to call it love and was going to confess to the Ician girl that day... but as they had Royal tea together for the last time in that household they both had news and Astrid made the biggest mistake of that day and insisted that Joy went first.. and she told Astrid her news....
She was getting engaged to Prince Davis the one of two sons of the Kingdom because her parents agreed with the king to marry of their Joy to Davis without Joys consent but the Ician girl explained that David was handsome and kind and she might grow to live Davis... Astrid didn't hear her anymore all she heard was Joy was getting engaged to Prince Davis..
Astrid was so shocked she that dropped her cup of royal tea on to the floor and caused young Joy to jump slightly at the smash.. Astrid's eyes started to water and her fire within her started to raise.. as she muttered that Joy promised... She promised... She promised they would always be together..
Joy realised her mistake and reached for Astrid trying to calm her down and apologise for being insensitive and they will be too together it was just that she'll be in a bigger home and it doesn't mean they can't see each other because they were friends... At the word friends it used to bring so much joy but now it broke her heart.. to the point Astrid muttered angerly at Joy not to touch her as she pulled away from Joy... Before muttering she hated the young Ician girl then shouting it in the sound proof room and shouted at Joy she broke her promise before she ran towards the window and jumped out in tears, ignoring the cries of Joy to her to come back...
The next day was Joy's wedding arrangements at the castle.. Astrid had spent all night crying in her room and didn't sleep at all, so she heard tge praise bells of the church for Joy and Davis and conversation outside that the youngest prince was getting married to a noble girl.. Astrid wanted to go back to sleep but she couldn't because of the noise outside, so she got out of bed and dressed in a manner that she wasn't present in her own body, when she was done went out for a stroll and over heard a conversation in a alley way that young girls had been sexual assulted by the youngest prince and a tiny rumor was that he killed his own brother to be king..
Though they doubted the Prince was like that and he was either framed or people that didn't like royals were spreading rumours.. either way Astrid rushed towards the castle to stop Joy getting married, thinking she should at least save Joy if these rumours were true.
But it didn't go well, Astrid remembers so clearly if she didn't her cursed missing eye would and would have the agonising pain she felt after as Joy turned her eyes from her as she lost the duel to the Prince Davis..
She didn't think she would break it in the future...[I emotional pain is the worst.. because it's always there and the pain always feels fresh.] she would never expected that Joy would get engaged to Prince Davis and cause her to break her promise..in the end she lost more than she gained....
Astrid remembers it all from day one at Joy's household until the awful day at the castle.. and continued to speak to Joy now as her memories went through her mind and stabbed her heart like fresh wounds from a sword...though she apologised for speaking about tea in high regrade and she alogoisd for making the should be pleasant time into a grim one before she went silent again..
At least her eyes didn't have desire in them, in fact she smiled slightly at Joy but her eyes didn't have the spark when she was happy her eyes were slightly darkened by sorrow ams continued to do so until Jpy or anone decoded to speak to her to cheer her up...
Astrid was so lost in her thoughts that she didn't realise a maid ran out the kitchen in a hurry.
There was a deadly silence between them both, the tension was so thick not even a butter knife would be able to cut through it , it that was thick. As Naiomi was about to walk out the room deciding Amy would come out when she was ready.
Naiomi sighed and put a foot out in the hallway but was stopped as she felt a cool hand touch her shoulder, Naiomi was slightly surprised at first and shivered at the sudden touch but her expression soon turned back into her guilty one, as she turned his eyes to the hand but not the person who it belonged to before turning back towards the hallway, thinking Amy was going to scold her... and Naiomi wouldn't blame if Amy did after what she said and done to the Ician girl a scolding was a lot less than she should've earned.. though she waited for Amy to speak or do something because that hand was giving her shivers in more way than one.. and soon Amy did speak...
[+blue "Next time I'll just hug you. Ician's don't like telling others this, but during out puberties we get violent and emotional. I'm sure my mother had a handful with me when I was a kid. So I understand,"]
Naiomi's eyes widened slightly as Amy stated she would just hug her if she ever did what she just done to Amy just now, but she soon realised Amy understood what she was going through because Ician's had puberties that takes over their very minds and have little to no control over their actions or words...
Naiomi couldn't trust her voice not to crock if she attempted to speak, so she brought one of her hands over to Amy's and gave it a gentle squeeze in acknowledgement she got everything and that she appreciated Amy's support before starting to walk again without a destination in mind until Amy decided to break the silence by suggesting they should go the kitchen because the Ician woman was feeling rather hungry again.
At this Naiomi simply nodded and walked in the direction of the kitchen with Amy in awkward silence because she didn't really know what to say to Amy after what just occurred in Mika's room.. Once they were there they opened the door to find the queen making tea and Astrid sitting down observing, until she saw them in the corner of her remaining, she smiled at the two of them as Amy greeted Joy and her.
[+blue "Hey, mom. Hey, Astrid,"]
Naiomi didn't say a word to anybody, she had a unreadable expression on her face as she followed Amy in, while Astrid and Joy gave their greetings to the oldest Ician princess as they came into the kitchen, Naiomi sat down quietly and made conversation with Astrid over little things like if she had a good time sleep and things like that to get her mind of what she done to Amy, their conversation went on until Amy asked Naiomi if she would like some Royal tea after the young princess went to her mother to see that was what the Ician queen was making and requested some.
[+blue "Oh? Are you going to make your Royal Tea? Mind if I have some too?"] [+blue "Would you like some tea, Naiomi? It's really good,"]
Naiomi turned her eyes to Amy and noticed that Amy didn't seem to be angry or upset now from the scene they had before, though Naiomi knew Amy was good at hiding her emotions behind a smile just she told her moments ago after their awful scene in Mika's room.. the thought of Amy not genuinely smiling caused Naiomi to bit inside her lip before opening them to speak.
[+red " Sure.. though I've never tried Royal tea before but I'd like to try some."]
Naiomi nodded as she said yes and she put on a small smile on her own lips even though she still felt tremendously guilty.. maybe she could make it up to Amy somehow, she felt like taking Amy on a date and bring her back just to kiss all those emotional wounds she caused better.. then her face went red, luckily her hair was in the way of it so no one saw it.. but to think something like that it caused Naiomi to look down at the table and strangely find it interesting...
Amy was driving her crazy without doing anything to her...it felt like spell was cast on her figure of speech of course, it was like she was getting attached to the woman... maybe she was because Naiomi couldn't deny that Amy was indeed attractive even if she wanted to.
The Ician girl was sweet and kind to her despite their drastic little scenes they had and even though Amy was perverted she kept her hands to herself though she did say things that would make even a woman of the night blush a dark red colour...Maybe she should take Amy on a outing to make it up to her.. with that decided Naiomi also decided to ask Amy tomorrow because she felt she wasn't emotionally ready to ask her now and the Ician would probably say no because of what happened in Mika's room if she asked Amy now, So Naiomi was silent until someone spoke to her or she was given her tea.
[+Darkblue "I sincerely thank you. I don't know where your sister is, but I'd recommend asking either the other maids or the queen. One of them has surely seen her. I wouldn't be surprised if she was with the queen. I often enjoy Joy's company myself,"]
Valerie stopped and smiled at Janis's words of gratitude, but she curved her lips into a tiny pout as the human woman stated she didn't know where Astrid was, now she going to have a hard time looking for her in this massive castle, though soon as Janis had suggestions on Astrid's whereabouts Valerie light up again then she was immediately curious when Janis mentioned the queen, how the human woman wouldn't be surprised if her sister was with the Ician queen because she to enjoyed the queens company herself though...
Valerie had noticed Astrid had been acting strangely around the queen, the queen had a sort of effect on her sister that nobody else had on her and Valerie immediately noticed it when she witnessed the queen managed to change Astrid's mind about leaving last night without the Ician woman trying hard... Changing Astrid's mind on something is almost impossible to do in itself depending how strongly she felt she was right though changing Astrid's mind without much of a effort that was impossible until that moment, even now Valerie couldn't believe it happened and caused her to go to into deep thought and wondered if Astrid and Joy had met before and if so what was their relationship...?
Soon Valerie came out of her thoughts because Janis started to speak to her, causing her to blink slightly and the distant look in her eyes disappeared as she gave the human girl her full attention.
[+darkblue "I'm going to stay by Terra's side. Until she gets better. I don't care if any of those Icians get angry at me for slacking. As the Head Maid it's my duty to take care of the others. It's kinda odd. One of the maids actually is half Ician. I never quite understood that, but I'm not going to judge,"]
Valerie nodded at Janis with a small smile on her face at first but as the human girl spoke her expression turn sympathetic until she mentioned a half Ician maid in the castle and Janis thought it was a bit odd but she wasn't going to judge.. Valerie thought it was a bit odd to but she had a good guess why a should be wealthy Ician was a maid, so she opened her mouth to explain it to Janis.
[+purple " Actually it is odd but not a rarity. Ician's are known to be wealthy for their looks and powers. But they do have reputations to uphold maybe this maid's Ician parent thought it was alright to be intimidate with a different species without a protection spell then got rid of the poor girl because their reputation could be ruined because most respected Ician households like to keep their family blood line as Ician blood, a half cast isn't welcome in a family like that....
Anyway here's our restaurant's leaflet it gives you a 15% discount on your main course for as many friends that you bring and yourself, come by whenever and bring whoever you want with you because I think you'll need a break once in a while, also your first drink and staying your first night at our bed and breakfast is on the house for being a new comer at our restaurant, bed and breakfast...
Well that's that take care of yourself Janis and your friend. "]
Valerie had a tight frown on her face at first as she explained her theory why there was an half Ician maid in the castle. Purebred Ician families where the strictest and meanest beings around because they would get rid of their own child if it wasn't a fullbred Ician... As Valerie explained Valerie's eyes were sympathetic, she was to begin with but it was more noticeable now. Though she soon changed the subject about the restaurant she owned and lived in with Astrid to prevent herself from going into deep thought about the half Ician maid.
Valerie presented a discount leaflet and put it on a small desk that was nearby. The leaflet explained about stuff on the restaurant and the b&b they have, which was called ' The Nekoblazkikin's Pride And Joy' and good views, some were bad most likely they were kicked out the restaurant or someone was just really snobby that Astrid forced them out the door and told them if they didn't like the place they shouldn't come in.
She also stated that Janis should pay the restaurant whenever she wanted with as many friends as she liked because she looked like she needed a break, once she was done explaining she bid Janis farewell and walked out the room to find Astrid, who was most likely at the Queens side because of the way she was attached to the Ician woman this morning.
Valarie searched the garden's like many servants suggested but her sister wasn't there, she just missed them. Then she searched the guest rooms just in case that Astrid wanted to take a nap before going home but she was yet again not there though Valerie kept searching high and low for her sister until she saw...
A young purple haired girl, who seemed exhausted being escorted somewhere by a guard.. the scraps, the blood on the girl, the expression of exhaustion and the way her energy aura seemed to go down to her limit..., causing Valerie to think the girl might have been caught in a fight or something like it that.. but there was also something very odd..
The girls personality energy was sweet, generous, devoted, cheerful yet very naïve but a cloud of something evil was hovering over it... like a influence controlling the girls better nature, this girl felt the highest respect for this influence aura's owner.. a influence so veil it could make a person kill if whoever the influence belonged to had a hold of somebody,..This creature must be using this girls naïve nature to work it's charm on her, the influence's aura strength got more noticeable as she walked past the guard and the purple haired girl..
As they went past each other it was like in slow motion. It was a feeling that Valerie never felt with nobody not even Naiomi, who she seems to appeared attached to all the time but Valerie felt there was nothing there with the redhead human, nothing like this at least... As she walked casually past the guards and the girl...
she couldn't help but feel like she wanted to make the guards let go of the purple haired girl because she didn't like them holding her, her Nekoblazkikin traits of jealousy, possessiveness and urge to protect and attack those who did or does the girl harm or discomfort.. especially the person, who that dark influence belonged to....her eyes turned a angry dark red and her teeth grew with anger to, nails started to grow...
Then she blinked.. and realised that she was feeling all of this towards a girl she just saw, feeling like she never felt before for a girl she never met was intimidating her, to the point her walk got slightly faster, thinking she should remove herself quickly.. though even though the girl was gone now Valerie could still see her in her mind, causing her to walk quicker until she was in a run, she kept running into she knocked into someone, causing Valerie to gaze at the person distraughtly before realising it was a maid, who she immediately apologised to her as she helped the girl up
Once the maid dusted herself off she started to explain that she was trying to find Valerie to tell her that Astrid was in the kitchen with the queen, at this Valerie hugged the maid tightly as she thanked the before letting of the maid and running of once more towards the kitchen. When Valerie got to the kitchen she opened the door and smelt something really really good that her mouth almost watered, instead she opened her mouth to speak if she could have whatever the queen was making.
[+purple " you won't believe the day I had- Mmm that smells good can I have some to please your majesty.. I really need a break after today..."]
Valerie started to state that everyone wouldn't believe the day she had today before smelling the air and asking the queen if she could have some of what she was making before walking to a seat next to Naiomi and put her head on the red head human's shoulder as she sighed tiredly, Astrid and Naiomi soon asked Valerie about her day, which she told them all about. How she helped this injured demon girl with her fire and then about a strange purple haired girl being escorted by the guards and how she seemed a bit off in a sense but she didn't get into the details especially about her reacting to the girl...
Once she told them what happened the two of them gave their response but Valerie didn't really hear because she was exhausted from how much she ran to the kitchen, how much the girl effected her and having her fire sucked from her by a fire demon to keep the poor dear to recover from her injuries, so she nuzzled into Naiomi's arm and waited for her tea..
Janis bowed politely to the other female. [#3104B4 [b "I sincerely thank you. I don't know where your sister is, but I'd recommend asking either the other maids or the queen. One of them has surely seen her. I wouldn't be surprised if she was with the queen. I often enjoy Joy's company myself,"]] she spoke. Her smile looked quite happy now that the stress of her friend's health wasn't so much an issue. [#3104B4 [b "I'm going to stay by Terra's side. Until she gets better. I don't care if any of those Icians get angry at me for slacking. As the Head Maid it's my duty to take care of the others. It's kinda odd. One of the maids actually is half Ician. I never quite understood that, but I'm not going to judge,"]] Janis spoke. She returned to Tera's side. She seemed less interested in the Nekoblaziken now. The other maids Valerie passed by seemed eager to talk to the Nekoblaziken. They told her what they knew, but most didn't know much. A couple suggested the gardens.

She couldn't stop herself even if she wanted to. She enjoyed the attention. So she didn't ask the other to stop. The queen kept a hold of Astrid's hand. It was comforting just to have someone there. Joy spoke kindly to every maid and guard she came across. In return they showed her respect and kindness. They seemed quite pleased and expressed gratitude that Joy was happy. Thus they thanked Astrid believing her presence to be a breath of fresh air for their queen. Indeed the queen was loved. On the other hand the king was feared. After a good walk Joy lead Astrid to the castle kitchen. She insisted that she make tea for the two of them.
Joy took out two large coffee cups. She set them delicately on the table. In the cups she placed a tea bag in each. She turned her head towards Astrid to tell her something. [#0C6991 [b "Would you like to try some of my Royal Tea?"]] Joy asked. She assumed Astrid knew that Royal Tea meant the tea was brewed in milk rather than water. While Joy waited for a reply she gathered a few ingredients that Astrid might want to add to the tea. Sugar. Honey. Lemon Juice. Just to name a few. All the while the Ician was humming to herself. A maid rushed out to find Valerie since she knew the Nekoblaziken was looking for Astrid.
[right [pic http://i872.photobucket.com/albums/ab283/Amy_Vlanderson/blue-haired-girls-random-role-playing-8785869-319-285_zps35c556fb.jpg]] Amy was feeling a mix of complex emotions. Confused. Anger. Fear. Resentment. Hope. Love. She couldn't tell which one was strong or which one was just floating about in a nonsensical nature. Lust. Envy. Greed. Some of the emotions were dark. Others were silly. She felt relief when Naiomi got off of her. If the other didn't get up then Amy would have carried Naiomi off. The Ician got to her feet and sighed softly. She followed the other girl out of the bedroom. Amy locked the door behind her to make sure no one would try anything funny. For a while Amy stayed quiet. She put her hands on Naiomi's shoulder to grab the girl's attention. [+blue [b "Next time I'll just hug you. Ician's don't like telling others this, but during out puberties we get violent and emotional. I'm sure my mother had a handful with me when I was a kid. So I understand,"]] Amy spoke. She didn't seem to notice Naiomi's face, or at least she didn't let on that she knew.
Amy walked alongside with Naiomi. With no where in particular that they need to go Amy asked if they could go in the kitchen for something to eat. Amy was always hungry. With all the magic she had in her she was never truly full. In the kitchen she noticed that Astrid and Joy were already there. [+blue [b "Hey, mom. Hey, Astrid,"]] the princess spoke nonchalantly. She waved to them both before walking over to her mother. [+blue [b "Oh? Are you going to make your Royal Tea? Mind if I have some too?"]] she asked. In response to this Joy got out another coffee cup and put a tea bag in there. [+blue [b "Would you like some tea, Naiomi? It's really good,"]] Amy insisted. She smiled at her maid. Either she didn't mind what happened in the bedroom or she was really good at faking it.
[#3104B4 [b #3104B4 = Janis]]
[#0C6991 [b #0C6991 = Joy]]
Astrid wished she could stay in the embrace with Joy forever or at least until she froze to death even though deep in her mind she knew it would eventually end even if she was willing to freeze just to be held by Joy, she was still crying slightly either from the pain in her in heart that still feels fresh even it was from the past or happiness because she felt like she was in bliss because she finally has Joy in her arms again. Or maybe both.. Yes maybe both.
If Joy had said they could stay in the embrace forever, but the problem was Astrid could freeze to because even though she was a Nekoblazkikin and was fairly strong, she wouldn't be able to survive a large snow blizzard without proper warm clothing. Astrid would have immediately and selfishly without hesitation answered Joy with that she didn't care if she froze over, if meant she could stay like this with the Ician until then she would gladly accept the frozen fate that would come for her.
The thought of it caused Astrid to smile as she realised she was getting sappy, though only Joy could make her do that, which she was glad about because she rather not let anyone else see her vulnerable side let alone get her to be sappy, soon she noticed she was getting sappier as she thought that, she wished she could put the embrace into a painting so it would be a forever lasting moment, but she supposed that not even a greatest painting of it could ever compare to living in the moment, feeling the ice underneath her melt, uncovering the fresh green grass that was asleep under the blanket of snow, the feeling of Joy's cool skin against her warm skin. Or the silky feeling of Joy's soft hair between her fingers, or the Ician's breath ghosting against her neck, which made her shiver in the best way.
So she decided to live in the moment with Joy as she felt privileged and blessed to do so because nothing could compare to it, not even her dreams, which were quiet 'detailed' and some weren't all that 'innocent' but she kept that to herself like the rest and enjoyed the embrace with Joy in the blissful silence, until Joy decided to speak which was more blissful to hear to her than any other sound.
[#0C6991 "Thank you. The stress just got to me. I never imagined that one day I'd be the queen of everything. With Davis always studying and neglecting his duties I've had to take on the tasks that were meant for him. Luckily, no one really thinks poorly of me for this,"]
Astrid's expression was a unreadable for a minute or two as Joy told her that Davis was neglecting his duties to the kingdom and his wife, her lips curved in slightly showing her light displeasure, before her expression changed again into a light smile as Joy stated that it was lucky that no one really thought poorly of her, for what exactly? Helping her husband with his duties that he should be doing not her.. Joy was too modest for her own good and always thought people might think poorly of her for doing things to help people.. Astrid nuzzled her cheek slightly against Ician woman's head as she opened her mouth to comment on what Joy had said.
[+darkred " Why on earth would people think poorly of you for just helping your husband with his duties my dear?, If the people knew he was neglecting his duties they would think poorly of him and think high praise for you for taking on his duties"]
Astrid asked/commented in a soft tone as she kept that light smile on her face as well as the tears they didn't seem to be stopping but they weren't falling down as rapid as before now, while she stroked Joy's hair gently, feeling her hands felt so right in the Ician's hair, around her back and their skin felt so right touching each other.. though Astrid knew that they couldn't really be together because they were worlds apart. Joy was a noble, who became queen, she was a thief, who was a still thief but one that owns a successful business built on the riches she stole... Even though they might not be together.. Astrid was happy just being like this with Joy even if this is all there was going to be..
Soon it was silent again, but it was short lived because Joy decided to talk out loud, which she normally always did when they were younger, causing Astrid to smile as she thought 'habits always die hard' but as Joy spoke, Astrid's expression changed yet again into a confused frown.
[#0C6991 "I don't mind that he's wanting to learn. But when will he put what he's learned to good use?"]
As Joy spoke; Astrid was a bit curious on what Davis was studying, probably something do to with making himself more powerful, or try to remove the curse on his arm that she put on him, though he wasting his time, the only way it could be removed is that he tells Joy the truth about the duel or if someone kills her the curse would be broken and nothing else could break it, not even the one casted it.
Astrid opened her mouth to ask Joy what Davis was studying as she got up with the woman's help, but before she could even form a word; Joy spoke up first and cupped Astrid's face in her hands, causing Astrid's eyes to widen slightly a blush started to form on her face... This was the first time since Joy had held her face like this, it caused stray tears to start to form in her eyelids again because she missed Joy's touch so much and she was so happy to privileged to receive it again.
[#0C6991 "How about we get a cup of tea? Then we'll go look for your sister? I'm sure she misses you,"]
Astrid immediately relaxed in Joy's hands, like she was the one melting even though she was in the hands of a Ician woman, she even purred faintly as she relished in the feeling of the cool hands on her face as petite thumbs wiped away the stray tears that came out of her remaining eye.. she was so relaxed she actually leant her head to the side to lay in the palm of one of Joy's hands, unaware that the Ician woman was a bit curious about her missing eye.. and continued to be unaware and decided to answer Joy's question.
[+darkred " Yes your highness...I like earl grey the most and I'm sure she's having a good time wherever she is, she always manages to have a good time because of her nature and personality, she may be a adult in age but she is still a kitten at heart my dear."]
Astrid husked out her yes as she smiled faintly to Joy because the Ician woman's simple hold on her face was tremendously effective, that she might be drunk that split moment without consuming any alcohol, before Joy let her face go, she swore she would have gone flat on her face from the effect Joy had on her, if it wasn't for the fact that Joy immediately took her hands in her own after she took her cool hands of her face, Then Joy decided to open her mouth to speak, causing Astrid to blink a few times till she got a hold of herself and perked up her ears like soldiers to listen to Joy.
[#0C6991 "You are always welcomed back. Though if my husband intimidates you I can visit. Without my guards this time,"]
Astrid ears went down slightly at the mention of Davis as Joy took her by the hand towards the doors to in the inside of the castle... shockingly it wasn't that she was intimidated by the male adult Ician, she would be civil with him if she had to be.. but of their history with each other she doubted Davis would be anything but civil towards her being in his castle, being near his wife, holding his wife's hand, so she would fight him if she must again, though he must start it first, because Astrid had always been determined to prove that Nekoblazkikin's don't always start fights because of their fiery nature and hot-headedness..
She had proven it but she wasn't going to let get tarnished over a hot-headed and jealous Ician man that had no right to call himself a man let alone a king of a kingdom, because he cowardly cheated in their duel and took her eye with the eyes of a jealous and childish boy and she cursed him because of that and warned him if he ever hurt Joy, his curse will give him the ten times the pain he inflicted on the Ician woman even if it was Psychical, mental or emotional, he would have ten times the pain.
Soon Astrid realised she was being awkwardly silent after Joy had talked to her so she gulped faintly before opening her mouth to comment on what Joy said.
[+darkred " Thank you my dear... but it would be best if your husband doesn't know I was here, it would be best if he never sees me here either.. I know this might be a shock to you but I'm not intimidated by him, even I sound like I am. In fact it's because he and I have met before a very long time ago, we're not at the best terms with each other, to the point I'm quiet sure if he saw me here he would probably order that I would executed and put my head on the wall.
Though if you ever need the company or somebody to talk to or even a night or two out the castle, you are more than welcome to come to my restaurant, bed and breakfast, speaking of my restaurant I would like to personally invite you, your children and friends to my restaurant tonight to thank you for your generosity you've shown me and my sister. The meals you order will be free of charge because giving me the privilege of your company is payment in it's self your highness."]
Astrid smiled at first as she thanked Joy, but her smile got nervous as she started to mention Davis and how it was best to not to let him see her here or find out she was here, before telling the Ician woman she didn't feel intimidated by the her husband for some strange reason, but they were well 'acquainted' in the past but they weren't on the best terms with each other and if he did find her or found out she was here she was certain she would be executed on the spot where Davis would have found her at..
Though soon her nervous smile turned back into a normal one as she started to mention if Joy ever required her company and someone to talk or a change of scenery from the castle, she was more than welcome to come to her restaurant that had a bed and breakfast also, for those who mainly lived a fair distance from the restaurant and had too much to drink. Then finally she stated she would like to invite Joy, her family... [b Davis not included but not mentioned..] and friends to her restaurant for their generosity that they showed her and her sister Valerie even though they didn't have to.. Before she said her last sentence which was that; The meals would be free and if Joy gave Astrid the privilege of her company then that was payment enough..
As she said that; Astrid brought one of Joy's hands up to her lips and gave the back of her petite looking hand a chaste kiss as she closed her remaining eye to savour the feeling of Joy's cool skin against her lips, It was a kiss so delicate it send tingles of warmth through Joy's hand and only a smudge of Astrid dark red lipstick, when she opened her left eye again she looked at Joy with a expression that had love, friendship, gratitude. yet it also had Loneliness and a hint of heartbreak.... and there was also a feeling there that she knew she shouldn't feel but she did... desire.. from the most innocent kind to the not so innocent kind..
All of this could have been seen if a person had looked into her eye long enough but soon Astrid dropped their hands back to their hands but kept them together as she realised she was starting to feel something she shouldn't, leaving it up to Joy if she wanted to let go of her hand because she refused to be the first to let go and looked forward to hide the fact that her normal light maroon coloured eye had almost turned or had turned a very dark maroon till it was almost black but hard a tint of red...
The colour meant that she found Joy desirable and she always had in the most innocent and not so innocent ways possible.. and she was also hiding the blush that was creeping up on her face, hopping that it would cool down as she walked with Joy in hand in hand inside the castle walls again to have tea together and enjoy each other's company before finding Valerie and she also hoped that Joy didn't find the chaste kiss on her hand offense and would give her an answer to her invite to her restaurant soon.
Naiomi blinked a few times until she realised she had one of her little bipolar episode's were she would relive something in her past that she couldn't remember, or something from her past a triggered it off.. Then she gazed down at Amy , who was crying her eyes out because what she said to the Ician princess..., Naiomi's eyes widened at the realisation that she told Amy everything about what she could remember from her past.. and worst of all she said that Amy was a fake mother to Mika...
Guilt filled Naiomi's eyes as well as new forming tears, she didn't mean to say all that to Amy, she didn't mean to make the Ician woman cry like this... She was aware what she was saying to the woman, but she had no control over her feelings or her words once she goes into her Bipolar stage..she wished she could apologise to Amy for what she said but she couldn't open her mouth right because she was too shocked that she told the Icican everything and that fact she said something so cruel to Amy to make her roar out crying like she was now, all she could do was bring her arms around Amy and hug her tightly in a silent apology and to also comfort herself after her uncontrollable episode that frightened the shit out of her and Amy...
Until Amy decided to speak making Naiomi cringe slightly because of the sound of Amy's heartbroken tone, that she caused the Ician woman to feel, Naiomi had never felt so awful since her last one, with Astrid and Valerie. She accused them for so many things, that they didn't do, she was reliving a memory that she couldn't remember and her feelings and words blurted out in a frantic way that she was in so much agony.. until it was over..
Valerie was crying in Astrid's arms while Astrid was giving her a very disappointed look, causing Naiomi to realise to had an Bipolar episode they called them as she explained herself to the two Nekoblazkikin's... Naiomi decided she would explain herself to Amy after she stopped talking until then Naiomi listened and clutched onto Amy in guilt and shame.
[+blue Naiomi. Firstly... I care deeply for my child. I made a mistake, but she isn't one of them. I... was ashamed of myself for what I had done. I could have easily stopped Mika from ever existing. Every day after I had tricked Rico into believing I was his wife just so I could fulfil my.. lustful... desire.... I thought about... what if I became... pregnant? I didn't think of using a spell before hand to prevent pregnancy. I guess I was hoping that I'd become a mother to his child. Selfish. I know. But... I could have prevented that. I could have aborted anytime after. I've been fearful ever since... but Mika. She's a treasure. She's my world. I'd go through that nightmare again if I had to... for her. There is a lot about this world... that you don't know about. Secondly... If it was up to her... you SHOULD have gotten your parents back the same day they died. The fact that your parents never returned.... I'm scared what really happened to them,"]
Naiomi bit into the skin inside her cheek slightly as she listened, she was terribly sorry for what she said about Amy not being a good mother, she was a good mother, anyone could have seen that or especially see that the Ician was trying to be the best mother she could be but.. this whole thing had to trigger Naiomi's past off, a past she couldn't remember but she feel every bit that happened she could feel the agonizing emotional pain she had to suffer and not knowing the memories it caused her to feel more scared, or emotional because she couldn't understand why she was reacting like this.. she had unwillingly hurt the people she cared about because of her Bipolar episodes.. and Amy was someone that she strangely deeply cared about.. maybe even more than Astrid and Valerie..
Something about the Ician made her heart skip a beat whenever she saw her, made her feel safe whenever the Ician was near.. even though the woman was perverted in the head a little more than sometimes. She always kept her hands of Naiomi, never touched her in a way it would cause Naiomi feel discomfort or fear Amy.. The Ician was nothing like the maids said she was they were right about her being perverted but she wasn't a rapist, she couldn't see Amy ever being one unless a lover accused her of being one to ruin her reputation or protect theirs..
Amy was nothing but kind, generous, caring and thoughtful towards her, the Ician was even worried about her when she came back late drunk out of her mind from Valerie's party.. Amy was sour with her but it was understandable because Naiomi made her worry.. but Amy was kind enough to stay with her that night to keep an eye on her even though she have to... Amy did all this for her, treat her like an equal rather than a low civilian, which she was... and all she did was smack it all back into Amy's face with this bipolar episode.. even though she had no control over herself she did it.. and it was breaking her apart that she made Amy cry like that....
Naiomi was disgusted and ashamed of herself but she continued listening to Amy, when the Ician woman explained that she tricked Rico into thinking she was his wife to fulfil her lustful desires as a teenager, it made her wonder why Amy used him in particular, she could have used prostitute to help her with her desires....
Maybe she felt something more than just lust at first but she realised that the man had a awful personality and felt only hatred towards Amy that she used him for all he got to get back at him.. but backfire on her because her lustful desires blocked out the thought of protection and got pregnant with his child, which he soon found out about and destroyed because Amy made a mockery of him, she understood how the Demi god would get upset about that but being hateful to your own wife is not acceptable, so she understood why Amy decided to take all that Rico had..
Though both of their mistakes made Mika got life in the middle of the chaos but Rico didn't see her as the wonderful being she was because he's anger caused him to kill Mika as a fertus without giving her the chance to be apart of the world and prove that he did something right in that heat of the moment with Amy and that was help create Mika..
A wonderful girl that could do no wrong to anyone on purpose a flower that grown out from the fiery, angry and hateful chaos between Amy and Rico...Amy was right.. she might have done something quiet selfish but Rico wasn't any better, in fact he was worse to take away a life of a child.. Now she understood why Amy brought Mika back.. because she wanted Mika to have the life that was wrongly taken from her because of the Ician woman's mistake and Rico's..
Then as Amy got to the end of her comment she mentioned Naiomi's family... she shouldn't have told Amy that regardless of how much he trusts her.. because it was her personal life and it was agonising to remember let alone talk about... If it was up to the Lady of resurrection she would have brought her parents back to life the day they died?.. Then why didn't they come find her?, Naiomi wanted to ask but she still couldn't form a word out of her mouth, but soon she didn't have to and decided to listen to the answer to her silent question.. Amy feared what might have happened to her parents?...
Naiomi's eyes widened as she remembered that her parents did say they worked for scientists' until they found out what they were working on.. Naiomi had asked them what they worked on... her parents simply said that they let it go and it was safe from harm now.... Maybe the scientists' were looking for them? and they couldn't make themselves known to Naiomi just yet...
Naiomi's eyes had a little hope in them.. but if she was aware of the truth that they were kidnapped.. then she would have lost her hope... but for now she keeps hopping.. as her thoughts go wild about them wondering what they were doing or how old her little sister was now.. until Amy decided to speak again, causing Naiomi to blink slightly and move her finger nails around the Ician woman's back to make her know she was listening.
[+blue "Thirdly. I smile because that's just who I am. It's not to be cruel. It's not to be kind either. Even when the worst happens I can find a way to be happy. Could you please... get off of me? You are... getting... rather close,"][+blue "I'm.... feeling kinda.. hot...."]
......She got it wrong... Naiomi got it all wrong.. she was wrong about why Amy was smiling, she wasn't smiling because she wanted to see the red head's heartbroken expression like she saw other Icians do with their prey, though Amy never saw her as prey and she should have remembered that even though her bipolar episode caused her to think something else.. Naiomi dug her nails in Amy's back trying to show her somehow that she was sorry..wishing she could be emotionally strong as the Ician woman until she felt and saw cool and light blue skin turn warm and red as Amy asked Naiomi could she get off her because she was apparently pretty close to her and she was getting rather hit because of it..
Naiomi smiled faintly as she wondered how could she make such a cute woman cry like she did... wait what cute?!.. ...well Amy was pretty cute with the blush growing across her skin, she was becoming a raspberry more than the colour of a blueberry, Naiomi smiled slightly bigger but still had her guilt in her expression to and her tears that have turned to stray ones..Regardless what Amy had asked/told her, she would rather stay on Amy for a bit longer... or deep in her mind Naiomi actually wanted to stay on Amy even more now because what the Ician woman asked/told her to.. though in return she opened her mouth to try to explain why she said all that to Amy and made her cry.
[+red " .... Amy. I'm so sorry.. I didn't mean to tell you any of that.. or accuse you of being a fake mother, I have some sort of bipolar, where I can be very happy like a child at one point, or very frantically upset like I was to you, this happens because my mind shows me memories of my past.... Memories that can relate to now.. Memories I can't see but I can feel them tremendously that I can't help what I feel or say.., I have done this once before with Astrid and Valerie.. I accused them of so many awful things... that I made Valerie cry and not talk to me for two weeks.
I know this isn't a very good explanation..But I can't explain something I don't understand myself.. I want you to know there's no words to express how sorry I am.. that I made you cry like that..that was the last thing I would ever want to do if not at all.. I won't ask for your forgiveness because I wouldn't forgive the punk that would make cry like that ... But I know that.."]
Naiomi muttered her apology as her arms tightened around Amy's body as she nuzzled the side of her head into the side of the Ician woman's neck and continued to speak when she got comfortable, explaining why she said those things and what her bipolar is triggered off by, but even though after the explanation Naiomi knew it wasn't enough to convince Amy to forgive and she didn't expect the woman to, because Naiomi wouldn't forgive the asshole that would make her cry like that if there was one.. before she started her last sentence and brought her lips close to Amy's pointy ear and whispered.
[+red " But I know that, I'd rather make you turn red like you are now than make you cry like before.. because honestly Amy..? I'll only say this once.. it makes you a lot cuter than a face with tears pouring down it."]
Naiomi whispered huskily with a faint smile because of her crocky voice from her own crying, before she gave a light kiss to the cheek she slapped which only got redder because of the blush that appeared on Amy's skin.. Then soon she sat up still straddling the poor Ician and ran a hand through her fiery red hair as she gazed to the side with a bit of a blush of her own before she opened her mouth to speak her final comment on the matter before actually getting off Amy, even though deep inside she would rather tease the once blue skinned woman and let her jealousy of Rico turn into possessiveness over Amy, make her feel loved, special like she deserved but...
Naiomi's personality and her past, kept a leash on her keeping those thoughts from ever coming to the surface.. because even though she did like Amy very much, and she knew this herself.. she couldn't bring herself into loving one.. just not right now, unaware she would ask Amy on a date to figure out her feelings for her sooner than she thought.. though for now she spoke out in her final comment.
[+red "...Amy.. could we not tell anyone about this, any of this?..I know I'm not in the position to ask favours but I'd rather not have anyone else knowing what I told you... and ask if you would...if you.. y-You.. dammit.. if you.. would h-hold me next time.. and try to ignore what I say if I do this again in front of you..?"]
Naiomi asked she now went redder in the face but she was her normal self again because her expression was pouty stubborn, at the end as she tried to ask if Amy would hold her and try ignore what she says if she ever did this again in front of Amy or to Amy.. The last request was torture to ask but it was worth it because she rather ask it and feel embarrassed about it than make tears appear on Amy's face like that again... Though Naiomi as she was waiting for Amy's reply she did hope that Mika wouldn't wake up too soon and find her straddling the kids mother and assume again that they were getting it on and making offspring...
Hotter.. Naiomi felt hotter, she soon realised she was having the thought in her head, the realisation caused Naiomi to immediately get off Amy without getting her answer while she was straddling the Ician, Now she didn't care about the answer she cared about her teeth growing again, not out of anger this time but in possessiveness... She had the urge to bite Amy again after that explanation about Rico, her jealousy and her urging possessive Nekoblazkin traits were fighting her human ones or maybe she felt like this with her human traits to, making the urges stronger!..
No No! She couldn't be a pervert, Amy was the pervert not her!. So as Naiomi got up she turned towards the door and she started walking towards it with one of her hands covering her mouth as she felt frustrated as she defied the urge to bite Amy and cursed the stupid Ician in her head because it was all her fault, with her stupid lusty teenage self, her stupid fake husband Rico and it was her fault for being so cute, even when Amy was crying she was cute.. but blushing like that at the end that just wasn't fair, what was Amy trying to do to her make her go nuts?.., she did in fact drive her a little mad because she kissed her cheek and even admitted that she found Amy cute when she was blushing.. Naiomi's face was beat red as she pouted frustratedly thinking.
If the Ician knew what was happening to her Naiomi betted that Amy would have a kick out of it, tease her, make her urges come out even more until she snaps...
Naiomi never let her urges go so far she couldn't control it accept that one time she came back to the castle, ate and barffed it back up again she couldn't remember what happened to make her do that because she was starving but she smelt something really bad that wasn't sick, she soon shuck her head slightly, deciding to leave it be and open the door to go outside the room, because there was nothing else to do in there since Mika was asleep and somewhat healthy, so she waited for Amy to follow her out, if she didn't start following her in ten seconds she'll decide to leave her with Mika and check on them later.
[+darkblue "Then I would have died a third time. From breasts. I'd prefer not to hit that magical number,"]
Valerie's lips curved in like a fish's mouth at the statement that it would have been the third time that Janis had died by boobs, Valerie didn't know if the human was serious or not because of her displeased expression because Valerie also knew of the Lady of resurrection, in fact everyone did it's just that believing in the fact she existed was different with people, Valerie was a believer and so was her sister Astrid, who had told her about the brother she lost and how if she ever saw him resurrected she would give him such a scolding he'll go deaf and then break some of his bones because she'll hug him so tightly his ribs would crack,..
Valerie felt a nervous sweat coming along when she was told that and made a note to self never make Astrid upset or angry because she rather liked her hearing and her bones intact.., So she just blinked at Janis's answer and remained quiet until the black haired human took her paw like hand and expressed her thanks with a simple thank you.
[+darkblue "Thank you,"]
Valerie smiled happily as Janis said thank you while she pulled the human up, once she was up on her feet, Valerie opened her mouth to say Janis was welcome, but before she even uttered a word Janis's expression turned angry as she turned to Tammie the twelve year old Neko, who she called the little girl boob wonder, which would still have amused her if it wasn't for Janis's expression towards the young girl and then without hesitation the human shouted on top of her lungs at Tammie.
Valerie's ears went down at the ear piercing shout from Janis, but she soon got over it and grabbed Janis by the arms, put them behind her back and held them there, because she feared that Janis might do something to the young Neko, she noticed that Janis had alerted the others to, causing them to express their own opinions on the matter vocally as Valerie held Janis in place even if she struggled or not in silence because she didn't think there was a need for her to comment also.
[+silver Oh.. no..."]
[+green "Please don't.... She's only twelve."]
[+hotpink "WaaaAAAAaaaaa! Tammie is really sowwie. She pawmis."]
Valerie watched as the conversation went on, mostly observing Janis's expression's and used her cat like hearing to hear her breathing because most people breathed in and out to calm themselves down, as soon as the girl that Janis was attending to before had called Janis, Valerie noticed the human's immediate attention went to the weakened demon in one of the rooms near them and forget about scolding the twelve year old Neko girl.. Once Janis's attention was no longer on Tammie, Valerie let the black haired human go and returned her arms to her side as her own expression turned into a concerned one as Janis ran to the demon girls side to attend to her once more with haste.
[+darkblue "I... didn't think.. it was this bad..."]
Valerie's cat hearing, caught Janis muttered words, causing her to step forward slightly and tried to peer through the door way, wondering if the human was ever going to ask her to help her demon friend, because the poor girl needed fire or else the injury will halve her health regeneration and even if she got to full health the fire that was taken by the injury and would be used to heal her.
The demon's fire will weaken even more and grow smaller and smaller depending how much magical power the girl's body could hold.. unlike Nekoblazkikin's with unlimited fire power, demons had limited fire power once they come out of hell because fire is absorbed to them when born not inside them when they were evolving in womb or egg depending what type..So they needed a power source to keep their flame mighty and at this moment Valerie was the closet fire source for the demon girl to use, so Valerie mentally prayed that Janis will realise they need her help before the demon girl got worse... Soon her prayer was answered.. well rather answered with a shout..
[+darkblue "Do you mind... if I borrow you? It's not like I want to ask Amy to do this. Your sister seemed too preoccupied to ask as well. Terra.... She might regain her strength if you give her fire. As much as you can spare!"] [+darkblue "The rest of you should go back to work. Tammie... if you want to rest up in your room you may. But.. just go.. everyone. Too many people here," ]
Valerie didn't mind the fact that Janis shouted for her help and almost pierced her ear drums, because she understood that the human girl was extremely concerned about the demon girl Terra and that was enough to cause Valerie to walk in a decent quick pace towards the room and before entering she gave the other maids a gentle smile reassuring that Terra will be fine even though they went with concern on their faces, Valerie hoped that the girls had faith in her to bring Terra back to full health with her fire as she entered the room in silence and closed it after her to make sure no one sees her fire magic because of the rules in the castle she came to know.
[+darkblue "Terra.. I'll make sure you get better," ]
Valerie approached the bed as Janis vowed to the passed out female demon that she would make sure she'll get better, the noble vow caused Valerie to smile faintly as she sat down beside the dark haired woman and opened her mouth to speak as she lifted up her hands in front of her and immediately fire appeared.
[+purple " You really care for this demon girl don't you Janis?.. You don't have to answer that because I can see it in the way you react to her voice alone, if you would I suggest you stand back a little I don't wish to burn you in the process, even if I give my fire to her slowly any part of her body could absorb it in first, so if you please?"]
Valerie voice was soft and gentle as she smiled gently down at Terra while she asked Janis the first question but also said she didn't require an answer because she already knew it because of the way the black haired human reacted to the demon girls voice alone, then she suggested that Janis should move aside slightly because it was unpredictable how a fire demon absorbs fire and Valerie didn't want the black haired girl to get burnt and injured to in the process despite she was deeply concerned for her friend, Janis's safety was priority also...
Once Janis realised that Valerie wasn't going to begin as quickly as she would have hopped she would she moved upon Valerie's final please about her moving aside slightly, once she did that Valerie smiled at her in thanks before returning her eyes to Terra and put her hands over the injured arm first because it was the source of the problem.. Then the girl's body begun to absorb it in different directions but Valerie managed to control it to the point it kept to the skin rather than the bed or spit at Janis.
Whoever this ice magic belonged to it was strong so Valerie doubted she would come out of it without being exhausted more than a little, but it was nothing that a good nap and a strong drink couldn't fix After she was done of course.. as she was feeding the girl her fire her focus seemed to wash of her child like look and replace it to a more serious woman look, she was rarely like this but once someone needs help like this her expression turns into the one she has now, even when sweat started to form on her brow she made it seem she wasn't effected by it...
Soon Valerie was done, she didn't know how long she was doing it for but her guess was an hour or an hour and a half.. the girl's body absorbed more than she expected so Valerie went dizzy slightly when she stopped but regained stability as she turned off her fire and panted slightly before returning her eyes to Janis and giving a bright smile and wink as she spoke.
[+purple " She'll be just fine now, a day or two of rest, she'll be as energetic as Tammie... not as energetic as her but you get the picture, when she does you should totally come over to our restaurant for a drink because you probably need it."]
Valerie explained with a cheerful tone as she gave that wink and bright smile before getting up slowly just in case she went dizzy again because man that packed a punch, as she stood up she muttered that she really needed a strong drink herself to now, before walking of towards the door not expecting a thank you or anything but she stopped at the door and opened her mouth once more.
[+purple " I know I don't have to tell you this but take good care of her Janis ya ere?, I'll be off to see if I can find my sister, you don't suppose you have any idea where she might be do you Janis?"]
Valerie smiled brightly at first as she asked her first question, before stating she'll be off to find her sister Astrid but before she did go off her expression turned curious and she asked if Janis had any idea where Astrid might be, if she didn't that was fine because Valerie didn't mind exploring the castle to find her sister, in fact exploring the castle was the best part, she waited at the door until Janis decided to answer her with either a no or a yes answer.

She just felt like staying in the soft embrace of Astrid. The queen smile grew eat to eat. Having someone to talk to, someone to be held by, and someone that was just there it made her so happy. [#0C6991 [b "Thank you. The stress just got to me. I never imagined that one day I'd be the queen of everything. With Davis always studying and neglecting his duties I've had to take on the tasks that were meant for him. Luckily, no one really thinks poorly of me for this,"]] Joy spoke. She kept cuddling into the other's form. [#0C6991 [b "I don't mind that he's wanting to learn. But when will he put what he's learned to good use?"]] thought out loud.
Joy stayed on top of the other female. She soon became worried that all this ice would make Astrid cold. Joy rose to her feet, helping the Nekoblaziken up. [#0C6991 [b "How about we get a cup of tea? Then we'll go look for your sister? I'm sure she misses you,"]] she spoke. She wiped away at Astrid's cheeks, rubbing them dry with a soft caress. She didn't say a word about Astrid crying. [#0C6991 [b "You are always welcomed back. Though if my husband intimidates you I can visit. Without my guards this time,"]] Joy added. She placed her hands in Astrid's and headed inside without further hesitation.

[center [+red [b " .....No.. I don't think you're a horrible person Amy, you're just a reckless one that doesn't think before they act, you may be smart in machinery but you're a ice for brains with other things, like the history of Gods.. Gods are players. They have so many lovers they lose count how many they have but the love them all , the rest are a___holes and don't even try to hide it because they think anyone would fall in love with them despite their personality, because of their other traits, like charm and of course their looks...]]]
Amy almost chuckled, but she kept quiet. She listened intently to what her maid had to say.
[center [+red [b They always take and they rarely give, when they do there is always something in it for them, they use the lovers for their own gain until they are tired of them and search for another unfortunate being to captivate and use them as their play thing...]]]
Amy heard stories about the Gods and Goddesses that messed around with mortal affairs. [+blue [i "They aren't all like that. Oh. If you only met Maya and Deidre,"]] she thought to herself.
[center [+red [b Mika's death proves that no one should have the power over life and death not even full gods let alone Demi ones, even the lady of resurrection should not have that power... I know she exists.. but I've never believed in her because.... my wished I wished every year for my birthday was never granted, I wished for my family to be resurrected, they were murdered, butchered and devoured by a adult male Ician... who we worked for. He ripped my father apart first then ate him, then he pulled my mother apart like a Christmas cracker, the prize was my unborn sibling...]]]
[+blue [i "Lady of Resurrection? Oh... I think.. I know what she means,"]] Amy thought. She listened, but never changed her expression. As she listened her mind became riddled with guilt. Then horror struck her. She refused to let Naiomi see what she was thinking.
[center [+red [b She hanged by her cored on my mother's womb, she was dead immediately she didn't have the chance to have her first breath or cry at the world, my mother was still alive, just barely and she kept telling me to run until I eventually did...]]]
If Amy wasn't already pale she would be now.
[center [b [+red I can't remember anything else, but I do know you can't believe trust Gods or Goddess's to help you...because I never saw them again after they died, I prayed to her to give back my family but they never showed up, I refused the thought of them abandoning me...and blamed the goddess instead, that is way I don't believe in resurrection..]]]
[+blue [i "She blames.. Maya? I'm sure.. this is some sort of mistake... No one.. just dies... and... never returns..."]] Amy's face was frozen in her smile. She no longer was aware of it. Her thoughts was the only thing she could see anymore as her vision faded to black.
[center [+red [b Also the reason, I asked why you brought Mika back to life with machinery is because a human man I used to live with and work for, he worked with robotics' fixing every robot he got his hands on but.. his wife died.. and it killed him inside but resurrected a unhealthy desire to bring his wife back with robotics...
He managed to do it.. but his wife went mad because she couldn't grow old or have children of her own, her circuits went busted and she tried to kill us, she killed her husband before I could take the finishing blow to her head with a axe...They were both gone together, but I learned that you can't bring someone back to life without nasty after effects Amy.
Even now Mika has desires of playing with other children her age, but she fears she might hurt them because of her superhuman strength and cause them to fear her, even when I took her to the park that day she broke every ride with her strength, you should've seen the grief on the squirts face.
The face of a little girl seeing herself as a monster because of her strength, She burst into tears Amy, burst into tears because she feared I didn't like her because of her powers, I tried to tell her that wasn't true but she ran away from me and into the forest..
That was when a male tiger creature hunted her and ripped out her core, I killed him, but I can't remember what happened until Mika called out my name, I must've went overboard because there was nothing left of him but blood, bits of brain and bone marrow dust..]]]
[+blue [i "Mika! Oh... Maya..."]]
[center [+red [b I'm not trying to make you feel bad Amy.. I'm trying to make you aware that Mika might have innocent desires that she might not be able to have.. unless you could advance her robotics' just a little to her strength, maybe give her a programme that stabilizes her strength, helps her to control it so she can feel she can be a normal child, like she deserves to be...]]]
[+blue [i "I'm trying... to give her everything. Believe me. I know I'm smart, but I... still have trouble. I'm... sorry. If she was a normal Ician she wouldn't be going through this. She'd.. at least wouldn't be aware of how violent she got."]]
[center [+red [b I just don't want her to be alone... It hurts... when people see you as a monster, especially when you're a child, you are ignored by the other kids or feared by them.. you are left alone in a corner of the playground because nobody want's to play with you, when it's home time they rush to their parents you wished you had, even they look at you as if you are the plague itself...All you ever wanted was someone to understand you, to love you... but nobody seems to care because they think you're dangerous... It's... not fair.. It's not fair.. ITS NOT FAIR DAMMIT!!"]]]
At that moment Amy wanted to cry. She felt like she was going to faint. None of this made any damn sense. Was Naiomi making all of this up? Amy wasn't ready to believe any of this. Amy's vision returned to her after a hard smack to the face. She felt sense coming to her mind, but at the same time she felt hurt. The next thing she knew she was on the ground with Naiomi directly on top. It was happening so fast.
[center [+red [b ".....How could you?...How can you smile at your daughter's suspense like this Amy...?, I never thought you were cruel while you were explaining things to me, but I must've didn't notice the expression you had on your face while you were explaining it to me...
You were always caring to Mika, everyone around you...was it all a cruel joke?.. you actually made me think a Ician would genuinely care, you actually made me think I was wrong about all Ician's, that they didn't care just for their fucking selves....
You didn't let Mika go because you cared for her, you didn't let her go because you didn't want to lose a chess piece of your game, to make people believe you're good person, a mother figure!"]]]
Amy's eyes started to swell with tears. These range of emotions Naiomi had didn't make any sense. [+blue [i "What? You think this smile of mine.... is cruel? She's my sweet daughter. She's persevered... I smile because... because...."]] Amy thought. She tried to bring herself to speak up. She was afraid. She wasn't sure what the other woman was up to.
[center [b [+red " Tell me I'm wrong...Amy Tell me I'm wrong, Tell me what I just said is not true, Tell me I'm wrong, Tell me you do care about Mika and you didn't bring her back just for your own gain!"
" Please.... please tell me I'm wrong..please Amy, just tell me I'm wrong..dammit.."]]]
The quiet tears Amy had progressed into a loud roar. She didn't know which way to react. All she could do was cry. She did so for a few minutes and then went silent. Her eyes closed shut. [+blue [i "I... don't know what to do... I've never been in this predicament before. And that crying... that was a bit embarrassing. I.. just... have to think about what I say next,"]] she thought. While she was deep in thought she didn't notice how much time had passed. Amy opened her eyes once more. [+blue [b "Naiomi. Firstly... I care deeply for my child. I made a mistake, but she isn't one of them. I... was ashamed of myself for what I had done. I could have easily stopped Mika from ever existing. Every day after I had tricked Rico into believing I was his wife just so I could fulfil my.. lustful... desire.... I thought about... what if I became... pregnant? I didn't think of using a spell before hand to prevent pregnancy. I guess I was hoping that I'd become a mother to his child. Selfish. I know. But... I could have prevented that. I could have aborted anytime after. I've been fearful ever since... but Mika. She's a treasure. She's my world. I'd go through that nightmare again if I had to... for her. There is a lot about this world... that you don't know about. Secondly... If it was up to her... you SHOULD have gotten your parents back the same day they died. The fact that your parents never returned.... I'm scared what really happened to them,"]] she spoke. Her voice felt weak and shallow. She tried to present courage. The same smile from before appeared on her face. [+blue [b "Thirdly. I smile because that's just who I am. It's not to be cruel. It's not to be kind either. Even when the worst happens I can find a way to be happy. Could you please... get off of me? You are... getting... rather close,"]] she asked. Her face was turning into a bright red.
Amy didn't move. She knew fully well how little effort she'd need to lift Naiomi off of her. She couldn't break through an emotional barrier to allow her to do that. She waited for the other girl to respond. Amy's face just kept on turning redder and redder. As a result of this her nose started to bleed. Her impure thoughts lent a hand in this. [+blue [b "I'm.... feeling kinda.. hot...."]] she spoke. Her body started to grow feverish as well. The blush on her face didn't stop there as it grew to the rest of her body. It wasn't long after that Amy's breath grew heavy. She shut her eyes tightly. It was upsetting her to feel this emotionally vulnerable. For once she didn't have an escape plan. In the back of her mind she thought she was going to get into big trouble.
Janis gasped for air the first moment that chest was lifted off of her face. She gave the Nekoblaziken a good glare. [#3104B4 [b "Then I would have died a third time. From breasts. I'd prefer not to hit that magical number,"]] her voice was poisoned by sarcasm. She hesitantly took Valerie's hand. [#3104B4 [b "Thank you,"]] she spoke after rising to her feet. The maid brushed her clothing. Janis's eyes soon darted at Tammie. [#3104B4 [b "YOU!"]] she growled.
[#88B0AF [b "Oh.. no..."]]
[#4BAD1D [b "Please don't.... She's only twelve."]]
[#ed02af [b "WaaaAAAAaaaaa! Tammie is really sowwie. She pawmis."]]
[#3b1d49 [b "J...a....n....i....s."]]
Janis's angry expression died upon hearing Terra. She turned to the injured maid and rushed over to the other's side. [#3104B4 [b "I... didn't think.. it was this bad..."]] Janis muttered to herself. Terra passed out. Something just wasn't right. Janis looked up to Valerie. [#3104B4 [b "Do you mind... if I borrow you? It's not like I want to ask Amy to do this. Your sister seemed too preoccupied to ask as well. Terra.... She might regain her strength if you give her fire. As much as you can spare!"]] Janis shouted.
The other maids seemed rather nervous. [#3104B4 [b "The rest of you should go back to work. Tammie... if you want to rest up in your room you may. But.. just go.. everyone. Too many people here,"]] Janis's voice was full of stuttering. She was mentally unraveling. [#3104B4 [b "Terra.. I'll make sure you get better,"]] she spoke to her unconscious friend. Emily, Snow, and Tammie all nodded. They left without hesitation. Each held a face of sorrow and a heart of hope for the sick demon girl.

Valerie was happily entertaining the maids, even though they ha to go the guest wing to do her little show and tricks with her fire magic, the little animals she made with it to dance around and amuse her audience, that were the some of the maid in the castle that she became acquainted with, with in the one night she stayed at the castle, she was having such good fun with them all until one of them disturbed her, causing her to stop the fire in thin air and turn her head towards the disturbance.
[+green "Awwww... Janis. This is cool. Why aren't you smiling?"]
Valerie noticed it was Emily who disturbed the show, but for a good reason because she seemed the one that was most into her little fire show, her reason for interrupting the fire display was because of a black haired human woman called Janis, who didn't seem too pleased about Valerie's little show, causing the fire cat to wonder if fire magic was such a bad thing in the castle, that everyone disapproved it even the maids, the thought of it caused Valerie's ears to go down slightly, as she wondered what the human's answer was going to be.
She didn't have to wonder very much because Janis's answer soon came sortly, but her answer didn't please Valerie very much...
[+darkblue "I really couldn't care less. Besides. I'm more concerned about Terra's arm than some parlor tricks,"]
At first; Janis's answered annoyed Valerie to a extent that her fire sparked a little but it went unnoticed because everyone was focusing on the grumpy black haired human, but soon her expression changed as Janis mentioned a injured woman's arm, Valerie understood that the black haired human was concerned about her injured friend but that was no reason to be so rude and rain on her parade, but she kept her mouth shut about it.. because she sometimes got moody like that when she was concerned about someone, especially Naiomi, who has been in so many unwanted situations, she lost count how many times the three of them had to beat someone up because they harassed one of the three or more of the three women..
So she let that comment slide, but Valerie couldn't help but feel concerned herself for the unknown injured woman and was lost in thought about it until Snow and Emily brought her out f her deeps thoughts by talking about Janis's behaviour just now, causing Valerie to gaze over to them to listen to the conversation.
[+silver "Is she always like this, Emily?"]
[+green "For as long as I've known her she's always been a stick in the mud," "She's a nice person. Honest. She just comes off as cold. She does kinda have bad luck around Amy from what I've heard,"]
As the two girls talked about Janis the more Valerie was curious about the black haired cold woman, how did the human become cold was her first question and second was, what sort of bad luck did Janis get around the Ician princess..?, though as she was to ask the two girls her first question, they both smiled at her in a way she couldn't bring up the question, because it might ruin their fun time, so she decided to change her first question to a suggestion of continuing the fire display, but before she could even do that they heard footsteps coming from around the corner causing the two girls to panic and Emily to tell Valerie to completely end her fire, which she did immediately.
[+green "Quick, Valerie! Hide your fire,"] [+green "I'll protect you, Miss Valerie,"]
Even though Valerie didn't need protecting, in fact she had hand to hand combat skills for when her fire powers weren't useful, but she smiled at the girl slightly none the less because there wasn't any time to talk now, because the person that was coming towards them were coming to towards them at a rapid speed.. causing poor Snow to hide behind a plant out of fright..
Soon the person came towards them.. or rather, big round things nearly hit Valerie, but luckily she dodged back and brought Emily with her so they wouldn't be hit by giant...boobs?.. Valerie blinked, that were attached to a young looking Neko, who's name she didn't know until Emily spoke up.
[+green "Tammie? Did you get a boob job?" "I thought you were.... smaller?"][+hotpink "Do you think I did this to myself? On pawpus? Meow would I do that?"]
Valerie watched as the two girls had a conversation about the apparently unusual boobs that the young Neko girl had, who now she knew as Tammie, thanks to Emily, though the sight of the boobs didn't seem real and if she the girl had a boob job then she would be in pain for quit a long while and she didn't seem to be in any pain, so it was either that the girls boobs were real or magic did it to her... Valerie's lips started to form a slight pout as she gazed down at her chest that was flat as a board, she always wanted good boobs but she was never blessed with any and now, this Tammie was complaining about her giant boobs, that she bet any girl would want, hell Valerie even wanted of the size of those...
The she realised even though she was innocently having a envious moment, the way she was looking must've seemed like she was a pervert so she pryed her eyes away from the girls boobs to her face, though as she did she realised that the Tammie girl came closer and opened her mouth to speak to her, causing Valerie to blink slightly and get slightly flustered because she was getting envious of this girl, before giving her full attention as she spoke.
[+hotpink "Are you a kitty? Or a fire kitty?"]
Valerie blinked at the question, before smiling proudly and pointing to herself with her thumb as she opened her mouth to answer the girl.
[+purple " I'm a Nekoblazkikin, or a fire kitty.. I suppose?"]
Valerie answered in a slightly weirded out tone as she wondered, if Tammie was fine with her being the race she was if not, then she would like to know what the girl was going to do if she didn't like the fact that Valerie was a fire cat or rather fire kitty like the girl simply put it before the girl could react if she had a reaction in mind, Emily interrupted it by calling out to the timid wolf girl that was still hiding in the plant.
[+green "You can come out, Snow. It's just Tammie,"]
Valerie couldn't help but giggle at the timid wolf girl, Snow was one of the interesting people she had ever meet, especially the most timid person she had ever meet, since the time Naiomi came to the restaurant and the long redhead was indeed timid at first before she warmed up towards Valerie and Astrid and becoming best of friends with them, So Valerie smiled empathetically in Snow's direction, hopping she would come out so she could entertain the wolf girl and the others again..
Though before Snow could even get out of the plant, Janis came back and started commenting on the Neko's large bust.
[+darkblue "Since when were you a DD, Tammie? Last time I checked twelve year olds don't grow boobs overnight,"]
Valerie had to cover her mouth slightly because she was trying hard not to laugh at poor Tammie because she seemed so displeased about her boobs expansion even though Valerie would of been trilled to get one without a operation.... just that she didn't want them to be giant like the young twelve year olds ones...
Soon Janis's next comment caused Valerie to stop giggling under her hand, or rather laughing all together and caused her amused expression to mirror Janis's annoyed expression as the black haired human shouted at Snow to get out the plant pot and asked her a trick question if she was eating plants, Wolves didn't eat plants they ate meat..
[+darkblue "Snow! Get out of there! Are you eating plants again?!"]
Valerie gave Janis a quick glare before the poor wolf girl rushed out of her ' hiding place', ran to her and hugged or rather clung into her warm body, Valerie was a bit surprised that Snow would come to her for comfort not the rest of her friends, but she didn't give much thought into it because she could clearly see the poor girl needed a hug and reassurance she was safe from the big mean Janis, So she put her warm arms around Snow and gave her a comfortable cuddle as she opened her mouth to whisper to the wolf girl.
[+purple " It's alright Snow, I wont let that big meanie Janis get you okay?"]
Valerie cooed slightly a if she was comforting a child and protecting the child from the monster under bed or the boggy monster in the closet but actually the person she was a bit scared of now was actually real, but no matter this always worked with little kids that came to their restaurant and started crying for ne reason or another, though Snow wasn't crying she was just timid but it was the same thing to Valerie so she hopped it worked for Snow to.. Valerie continued to cuddle Snow as the other's went through their conversation with the grump that was Janis.
[+green "We were behaving..."]
[+darkblue "Please keep it that way,"]
[+hotpink "Why does Janis have to be such a meanie. Mew. I was just peeking into May's room to see why she sounded so excited. Suddenly meow chest got bigger," ]
[+green "It's never boring at least. Though it is usually Amy that's the cause of breast expansion,"]
Valerie's eyes went small as conversation went into a glomping moment with the busty Neko girl and the grumpy Janis, who she noticed wasn't all that bad because she saw the faint smile she gave to someone in the room near the head maid, that must've been that girl Terra that Janis mentioned and she was more concerned about Terra more than fire tricks, Valerie understood of course, in fact she smiled faintly because she was fond of loyalty like that even though the person may express it differently than others, they still cared..
Soon Emily got her attention again as she commented at least every day wasn't boring and how Amy was always normally the culprit if the breast expansion, Valerie gazed down at her chest that had barely anything to nothing there, still envious that a twelve year old got bigger breasts than she has, but her little pout soon turned into a smile and turned her eyes back to Emily before opening her mouth to comment.
[+purple " I guess pretty much your everyday is like this?, but different each time?. It sounds like every time my sister opens the restaurant at night..Lets just say its never boring, in fact it's pretty loud and you have a great time, depending people don't get too drunk and tick my sister, or me or Naiomi off, even if someone does there's always a betting of how long the opponent can last against us, until we kick them out the door....
My sister always has her little games where she challenges people to a drinking contest and the poor sods lose all their money.. and maybe their clothes and their dignity depending how far the opponent will go just to beat my sister.. but not one challenger has ever beaten my sister at a drinking game not even another Nekoblazkin.. seriously I don't know how she appear fine after drinking the amount she drinks, but she's all good fun like you guys."]
Valerie comment/explained/asked as she gazed down at the two women on the floor, she couldn't help but smile with a bit of sympathy for Janis because she was getting suffocated by the giant boob girl but also it looked pretty funny to be honest, then her expression changed with a cheesy nervous smile as she palmed the back of her head with her free hand while she explained about her sister's little games and the betting on brawls, soon after she put her hand down to her side and her expression had a simple smile on it as she stated that Astrid was all good fun regardless what she does in the restaurant.
Then finally she started to continue watching the situation on the floor, wondering how long Janis could breath underneath there...it would be a but cruel to bet on it so Valerie kept that idea away from the others and kept her money in her pocket and just went on watching until Snow caught her attention again, causing her to look to her right were her right arm was still in use by Snow to cuddle into and feel safe in.
[+silver "I'm sorry, Miss Valerie. I hope all this... commotion isn't a bother. Sadly, I don't know what to do about this. Oh, dear.."]
Valerie's lips curved into a gentle smile as she made the hug tighter slightly before releasing the extra tightness again, then she opened her mouth once more to comment on Snows apology, which wasn't needed.
[+purple " It's okay Snow you don't have to apologise, to be honest I find it quiet funny actually."]
Valerie reassured Snow that everything was alright and she didn't have to apologise before whispering to her that she actually finds the situation funny, as she giggled slightly before gazing over what Snow was looking at, Janis still hadn't gotten out the trap of the giant boob wonder, the sight caused Valerie to bit her lip slightly as her ears to go down in worry before letting go off Snow and walked towards the two girls but not before petting Snow on the head slightly to reassure it will be fine.
As she approached them the Neko decided to comment, obvious to what was going on beneath her chest.
[+hotpink "Where did Janis go? She needs to help meow,"]
Valerie sighed with a faint smile on her face at the young twelve year old Neko's obviousness before lifting the little girl up by the waist and opening her mouth to speak as she started to move the girl f Janis so the human could breath.
[+purple " Come on little girl boob wonder, I think Janis has had enough of your chest trying to suck her in.."] Valerie giggled as she pulled the girl gently off Janis and put her down on her feet again a fair distance away from Janis, when she was done with Tammie, she went Janis and bent down to her level of height, since the human was on the floor she had squat on her knees before she opened her mouth to speak.
[+purple " Hey Janis you still alive sweetheart?.. for a human you have pretty good lungs to survive that long without air, I could've seen it. Janis deceased. Death by... Giant Boobs, I'm sorry that wasn't funny do you need a hand up? "]
The short haired Nekoblazkin asked/comment with such an amused expression on her face, because seriously it was pretty funny, Janis.. deceased. Death by.. Giant Boobs.. that cracked Valerie as she started to laugh slightly but the look on Janis's face caused her to suck her lips in like fish to mute the laughter a bit, but the amused expression on her face she couldn't help that, even though she tried to compose herself but at least she offered her claw like hand to help Janis up.
Though as she did, Valerie could smell ice magic in the nearby room, causing her to turn her eyes a little to it's direction and saw the girl that Janis was probably on about.. the smell was coming from the girls arm...somebody must've used ice magic on the poor fire demon.. Yes.. She knew that the girl was a demon that devoured fire for energy and health.. but the fire within the girl seemed to bit a little weaker than it should be maybe.. she could help the girl progress in getting better.. but would Janis allow that..?. would she trust Valerie to help her friend get better..
Valerie would ask the black haired girl a soon as she reacts to her help towards her first, so she waited for the head maid to take her hand or get up by herself.
Valerie was completely unaware that she only the happy person between herself, her sister Astrid and her best friend Naiomi. ]
[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/1rsHXRZ.png]] The entrance of the castle was quite busy. The King left with his elite guards. The guards that remained seemed on edge, especially the few at the gate. A red headed boy walked up to the guards at the entrance. Standing behind him was a small child. The guards recognized the duo as Mike and Ashley. Unfortunately, the kids were not allowed inside.
[#e0270b [b "What do you mean we are not allowed inside?"]] Mike asked. A male guard bowed apologetically. [b "I'm sorry, sir Mike, but Davis told us that no one was allowed in the castle unless they have special permission,"]] he spoke. He didn't seem to want to keep Mike out, but he also didn't want to provoke the king's wrath.
[#943a0a [b "But.... May's waiting for me! We were going to have a sleepover together!"]] Ashley protested. This only made the guards feel even more regret. Their armor kept the shame on their faces well hidden.
[#e0270b [b "W-what? But.. I live here..."]] Mike stuttered. He couldn't believe that he was excluded entry. He's job required him to get inside the castle. [b "It's not up to us. King Davis would kill us if we let you in,"]] the guard spoke. [#e0270b [b "Where is the king?]] Mike quickly retorted. The guards looked at each other before simultaneously shrugging their shoulders.
[b "None of us are gifted with that sort of information. He just took his best soldiers and guards then left on horse. With the amount of luggage he had I'm sure he will be gone for at least a week,"] the guard spoke, [b "But that's just speculation."] Mike pondered for a bit. He turned to his little sister and let out a sigh. [#e0270b [b "Mind if I set down your bags while I think this over? They are getting kinda heavy,"]] he asked. His sister nodded, though she didn't seem too happy that a bunch of adults were keeping her from her best friend.
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/Hk6EuZ6.jpg?1]] Mike set down three large bags, each the size of himself. He was used as a camel by his sister. Not something that was foreign to him. Amy often had him carry many heavy things even though her strength exceeded his by far. [#e0270b [b "Why do you have all of this for a slumber party? It's just for one night, isn't it?"]] he asked. [#943a0a [b "It is one night. But it might be two. It might be three. I might be here for a whole week. OR MORE! Either way I want to spend the best of it with my best friend. How many times do I get to spend a whole night with my best friend?"]] Ashley responded. Mike smiled nervously to this.
[#e0270b [b "Aren't you always able to visit?"]] the boy asked. In return for this question he got blasted by a long rant from his sister. She ended her rant with a few questions of her own, [#943a0a [b "Do you think May will like this outfit? I know how she likes books and studying so I decided to wear my school uniform. I hope it's okay. I think it looks nice. Do you? Do you think they'll let us in now?"]]
Mike turned to the guards. He wasn't ready to answer any of that. [#e0270b [b "Do you mind if I talk to the queen? Surely she'd let us in,"]] he spoke. The guards shrugged with puzzlement once more. [b "We were given specific instructions from the king. Only certain people may enter. Though anyone else may leave,"]] he responded. Neither Mike nor Ashley were pleased. The guards still refused to let them through, but they understood their fears of Davis.

Her voice was raspy and winded as if she ran quite a ways. The siblings didn't even notice the girl approaching since they were focused more on the guards. [b "Ah, Jess. The king told us you'd arrive. Why don't you get a drink from one of the maids before you get to work?"]] the guards spoke to the girl with glasses. Jess had already collapsed to her knees. She ran more than her body could handle. Her face was quite pale. Her clothes seemed drenched with her sweat. A female guard approached her. [+grey [b "Why don't I help you inside?"]] she insisted. The guard didn't hesitate to pick up Jess nor did she wait for a response.
Mike and Ashley watched as Jess, someone they've never met before, was escorted inside. [#943a0a [b "You let her in, but not us?"]] the child complained. She tried her best to get past the guards, but the human child wasn't fast enough. The Ician guard threw her to Mike whom caught her gently. [b "No means no. Don't make it any more difficult on us than it already is,"] the male guard spoke. Mike gave his little sister a big hug. [#e0270b [b "I'll find a way in... you'll see,"]] he whispered softly.

It was a quiet place to perform magic away from the King's eyes. While Janis didn't seem very amused the other two maids giggled and laughed at the sight. The human maid seemed more preoccupied with other things. [#4BAD1D [b "Awwww... Janis. This is cool. Why aren't you smiling?"]] Emily asked. She was the most excited out of the three. Fire Magic, especially Nekoblaziken Fire Magic, sparked great hope into the girl. [#3104B4 [b "I really couldn't care less. Besides. I'm more concerned about Terra's arm than some parlor tricks,"]] Janis replied coldly. She slipped away into the room where Terra was resting. Emily and snow looked at one another before sighing. [#88B0AF [b "Is she always like this, Emily?"]] the shy wolf asked. Her eyes kept wandering over to the bedroom door the human left to. [#4BAD1D [b "For as long as I've known her she's always been a stick in the mud,"]] Emily responded. She looked to Valerie with a nervous smile. [#4BAD1D [b "She's a nice person. Honest. She just comes off as cold. She does kinda have bad luck around Amy from what I've heard,"]] Emily explained. Snow's ears twitched at those words. She appeared interested to know more, but didn't say a word. The two remaining maids smiled at the fire creatures.
The two maids weren't expecting anyone else to come down the halls of the Guest Wing. They seemed to panic slightly when they heard the noise of hurrying footsteps coming their way. [#4BAD1D [b "Quick, Valerie! Hide your fire,"]] Emily whispered loudly. Her nervous shiver made Snow nervous as well. Though it wasn't that difficult to cause the wolf girl to feel uneasy. Snow jumped behind a potted plant. Her rear end was exposed, making it easy to identify where she was hiding. Emily extended her claws and prepared herself for any threat that may come their way. [#4BAD1D [b "I'll protect you, Miss Valerie,"]] she spoke. Her heart was beating incredibly fast. Her imagination ran through multiple images of what the noise in the distance could be. The footsteps grew closer and closer.
[left [pic http://i.imgur.com/INq9tzg.jpg?1]] Around the corner came a busty Cat Girl. Her breasts threatened to slap the poor girl in the face. [#4BAD1D [b "Tammie? Did you get a boob job?"]] Emily asked. This only made the other maid feel flustered. The pink haired Cat Girl meowed her feelings about that comment. [#4BAD1D [b "I thought you were.... smaller?"]] Emily added. She didn't notice she was still in a fighting pose. Tammie took the claws as a threat. [#ed02af [b "Do you think I did this to myself? On pawpus? Meow would I do that?"]] she spoke. Her voice shook a little. The tiny framed maid slowly stepped back. She curled her tail around her right leg. Her eyes looked over to Valerie. [#ed02af [b "Are you a kitty? Or a fire kitty?"]] Tammie asked. Emily took a few minutes before registering why the other maid was feeling uneasy. She returned her claws to normal and relaxed herself. [#4BAD1D [b "You can come out, Snow. It's just Tammie,"]] Emily said.
[right [pic http://i.imgur.com/SY8j9vy.jpg?1]] Janis sat by her friend's side. She was worried for her unconscious friend. The human clenched her fist and gritted her teeth. It seems she was powerless to stop herself from crying. The tears flowed down her cheeks. She held back the noise to let the other sleep soundly. [#3104B4 [b "That man is cruel to every creature. Even demons like you... aren't safe... Terra..."]] she spoke. Janis wrapped her arms around the injured maid. The crying effectively woke up the demon girl. Terra adjusted her head to look at her friend. The drill pig tails moved slightly with her. She smiled softly. [#3b1d49 [b "When one of us is injured you usually are there to make sure we get better,"]] she spoke, [#3b1d49 [b "You don't have to cry for me. I wouldn't want you to mess up your pretty face."]] Janis turned bright red and looked at her friend. [#3104B4 [b "Shut up... idiot. You need your rest,"]] she responded. The human wiped her eyes dry. [#3104B4 [b "I wasn't crying. The Head Maid does not cry,"]] she added. It was obvious why she refusing to admit her tears.
[#3104B4 [b "I'm going to make sure those other idiots don't cause any trouble. You stay in bed and rest. I'll bring you some food shortly afterwards,"]] Janis said in a calm voice. She opened the door to see the image of a busty Cat Girl lay before her eyes. [#3104B4 [b "Since when were you a DD, Tammie? Last time I checked twelve year olds don't grow boobs overnight,"]] she tried to hold her laughter back, but it eventually slipped out. Tammie blushed brightly from this. Janis also noticed Snow's butt from behind one of the giant plants. [#3104B4 [b "Snow! Get out of there! Are you eating plants again?"]] the human shouted. The shy wolf girl jolted up immediately. She clung onto Valerie tightly in fear of Janis's wrath.

The sudden boom in Janis's voice caused the unintentional reflex. [#4BAD1D [b "We were behaving..."]] she spoke quietly. [#3104B4 [b "Please keep it that way,"]] Janis responded. A weak giggle emitted from Terra. Janis looked around to give the other maid a warm smile. [#ed02af [b "Why does Janis have to be such a meanie. Mew. I was just peeking into May's room to see why she sounded so excited. Suddenly meow chest got bigger,"]] Tammie spoke. She jumped onto the human, who in turn fell over. Emily looked to Valerie with a nervous smile. [#4BAD1D [b "It's never boring at least. Though it is usually Amy that's the cause of breast expansion,"]] she spoke. Janis expressed much frustration in the child pushing her onto the floor. Her face shared a similar shade of pink to the child's hair. Terra giggled once more at her friend.

I hope all this... commotion isn't a bother. Sadly, I don't know what to do about this. Oh, dear.."]] her voice was low and soft. She said a few other things, but those words were too quiet to be heard. Terra was amused at the scene playing out. Her body was too weak to join in. When the king had grabbed her arm he unintentionally froze them as well. Janis prevented the worst from happening, but it didn't look pretty underneath those bandages. Emily was unsure how to separate the two maids. She looked down nervously. Janis soon found herself smothered in the pair of DD's. Tammie looked around with a clueless expression. [#ed02af [b "Where did Janis go? She needs to help meow,"]] she spoke, not noticing her chest was slowly swallowing the human whole.

Astrid's hope was withering as the two of them were silent for a few minutes, she had to control herself from crying as she spoke before, because her race loses a bit of their fire power control when they are emotional, but soon the queen opened her mouth to speak causing Astrid to turn her eyes from their twined fingers, to Joy's face.. Though as she did she saw Joy was crying...., it caused Astrid's eyes to widen slightly before they turned into a soft expression of empathy as she listened to the slightly older woman.
[#0C6991 "It does get lonely from time to time. I want my children to see their mother as strong. Even when I do have everything something's missing,"]
Lonely?.. Didn't Davis keep her company when she felt like that. No even when she didn't feel like that Davis was supposed to be showering Joy with the affection she deserved if not more, Anger slithered in Astrid's heart giving a slight negative cinder to her flame inside, but that was all it was because she took a faint breath in and out her nose to control it so it wouldn't cause a nasty spark on the outside, onto Joy's flawless and beautiful white, blue hued skin.
But even though Astrid was controlling her anger to the best of her ability some heat slithered out her body and made her slightly warmer than before, she was frustrated that Davis made Joy so lonely it brought her to tears, A spouse should shower their other with affection, kisses that hasn't missed out a single spot on their other's body, Joy should have a spouse that gave her so much love that she would feel her ician body would melt....
She deserved the best to be her spouse, someone who would rather die than leave her lonely to the point of tears, Astrid had always wanted to be that person for Joy, to cause Joy to only feel the feeling that mirrored her name, but Astrid thought she was never good enough for her, she was a poor civilian, a petty thief.
Even now she is still a thief because she built her restaurant on the money she stole when she was younger, Joy would never love a person that would still for her own gain even if it were to survive, it still wasn't right for her to steal..., If she could give all the money she stole back she would, though even if she were to do that she was still be poor in sociality and back then Joy could have been disowned or worse punished then disowned for being involved with a poor person and what makes it worse she was a nekoblazkikin, she wouldn't be able to provide for Joy let alone herself...
So they couldn't be together back then and they certainly could be now.. but there's had to be someone better than Davis to be Joy's lover, there's had to be someone that would give up everything, their powers and their soul without hesitation if they had to..just like she would for Joy...
She would give up everything just to be her presence, just to hold her in her arms and call her friend again even if she wanted them to be more she would accept it that they can't if she could just hold Joy again, even it was just her hand just like now, soon she decided to open her mouth and comment about Davis to make sure he was there for Joy...
[+darkred " Your majesty.. I.. find it shocking that you're lonely, I mean doesn't you husband make sure you don't feel like that?, if he isn't I'm afraid he might be neglecting his duties as your husband, I fully understand, I gained what I thought I wanted when I met my friend, but I realised I had lost her in the process.. i had learned the hard way, you never really know how much you care for someone until their gone, taken by another.."]
Astrid asked/commented/Explained as her soft expression didn't change much only slightly to show what she felt in each sentence, though Joy probably appreciated action more than words at this moment so she gave the naturally cold hand in hers a gentle squeeze to show Joy to understood what she meant about loneliness, she couldn't lie even though her body had never been touched in a intimacy way, she had missed Joy's little touches that they gave each other as children, it was sensual and soothing to Astrid and she became adducted to Joy's scent, her naturally cold skin, her voice, everything about Joy, Astrid became addicted to but after these years, Astrid still had the terrible withdrawal stage like a person addicted on a drug but it lasted a lot longer to go through the withdrawal stage...
Astrid awaited Joy's reply but the hurt in her eyes made the fire woman realise that Joy might not answer her, in fact she might change the subject all together, which Astrid didn't blame her, because she knew how painful loneliness could be.. desiring someone to hold them in a romantic way, to make them feel loved even with the simplest of gestures not just intimacy, to have someone whisper sweet nothings in your ear because all they needed to hear was the breath of their lover close to them and each other's heart beat, if they continue hearing that sound everyday they would know their lover would never leave...
A love like that..Astrid could only dream of having....Soon the Queens' reply came to her cat ears causing them to twitch slightly motioning she got what Joy had said..but couldn't understand it.
[#0C6991 "I'm sorry for the trouble we have caused,"]
Astrid's eyes widened slightly, then soon went into confusion because she didn't understand why Joy was apologising to her, maybe it was because of the guards that assaulted Valerie, that was the only thing she could think of but why was Joy apologising for her guards, she had nothing to apologise for, So she opened her mouth to tell Joy this as she gave the naturally cold hand she was still holding another gentle squeeze.
[+darkred " There isn't anything for you to apologise for your highness, you have been nothing but generous and welcoming to me and my sister, you have given us food and a place to stay the night when you didn't have to, you could have casted us aside, refused to let us in because of your no fire magic rule..You have been more kind than most Icians would dare to be, especially towards my race, So there's nothing for you to apologise for my dear, in fact I should be one who apologises to you for causing you to break your own castle rules-..."]
Astrid gave a gentle smile as she spoke to Joy, she made sure her voice was soft and clear that she didn't believe that Joy should apologise to her for anything because she had been nothing but kind to her and her sister when she didn't have to be, in fact it should be her who should apologise to Joy because she caused the ician queen to break her own castle rules, which she did apologise for as her cat ears went down to show how sorry she was for the inconvenience..while she rubbed her thumb on the back of Joy's hand to try to comfort her, while trying to control herself from pulling Joy into her arms and hugging her because if she had hold of Joy in her arms, Astrid wouldn't be willing to let go off Joy again.
Though soon, Astrid soon realised Joy had noticed their fingers were still twined, if Joy didn't look so sad, Astrid would have lost all her willpower not to pounce on Joy because of the cute wild blush that appeared across the Ician woman's face bringing a glow to her white, blue hued skin, if she wasn't captivating enough, Joy had to go and do that, the blush caused Astrid to bite her own lower lip slightly to keep herself under control and not to make a squeal sound from the sight of Joy's blushing face, So she just smiled fondly at Joy as she cutely turned her face from her to try to hide the blush that was still growing on the woman's face as she begun to speak.
[#0C6991 "Being near you... Feels like deja vu. That story you told me. It feels like I've heard it from somewhere,"]
Astrid's ears perked up slightly as hope flickered in her eyes when she heard those words come out of Joy's mouth because she might have remembered a bit about her, about them but as quickly as the hope appeared it vanished into disappointment and her ears went down as she heard the last part but she kept her smile...
Until Joy pulled her hand away and turned away from her, causing a sharp sting to go through Astrid's heart.. it was the same as before... Joy turned away from her when things got hard..
It hurts.. It hurts.. so bad...but Astrid kept her smile up even though inside she was begging Joy to turn back around to face her, she wanted to dry Joy's eyes and for Joy to dry hers..but they couldn't so Astrid opened her mouth shakily to speak... but she couldn't, she wanted to say that her story happened in this kingdom and that's how Joy might of heard it... But she couldn't speak because the way Joy had her back towards her hurt her badly that she couldn't form words, so all she could do was listen to Joy as she began to speak again.
[#0C6991 "I'm sorry you have to see me this way. I'm sure I must look abstract. A queen should always keep her composure,"]
But you are a woman before you are a queen, Joy, Astrid wanted to tell her it was okay to cry, everyone cries even the strongest of people cry at some point because they all were and are living beings that have feelings positive and negative one's and crying was a result of sadness or happiness but at this time it was the result of sadness...Even though she wanted to say all this to Joy she couldn't because she was holding her sounds of crying behind Joy...
She was such a hypocrite...But Astrid couldn't help it because last time she tried to get Joy's attention, she ignored her, she ignored her cries as she called the Ician's name over and over as Astrid was pulled away by guards being followed by a trail of blood from mainly her missing eye.
So she refused to call to Joy this time even though her thoughts begged Joy to turn around, she kept quiet because she couldn't bare to call out to Joy and be ignored again.. she couldn't bare the thought of being ignored by her again, so Astrid used her cat like hand to cover her mouth so her sounds of crying wouldn't be heard, but underneath her the ground below her feet was turning to ash, even her tears burnt the ground as the fell on it, She had to control herself again no matter how it hurts, she had to gain control of her emotions again... So she tried to breath in and out slowly through her nose until Joy spoke again.
[#0C6991 "I'm glad you two had some rest," ]
Astrid tried to smile at the kind words of Joy but she could only form a slight smile but her lip muscles weren't strong enough to hold it and turned back into a frown, before Astrid decided to speak a she tried forming the smile again.
[+Darkred " Thank you.. Your highness for letting us stay here, I must see to my sister now to make sure she's not causing any trouble, goodbye my dear-"]
Astrid's voice was a bit weaker than before and lower but it didn't seem to distressed to those who had their backs to her, like Joy, Astrid was about to say goodbye to Joy and turn around to face the direction to the door that allowed to go back in the castle.... but before she could think of moving she was tackled down to the ground by Joy, causing Astrid to make a surprised cat sound before they hit the ground..
As they did they both seemed to have mirrored each other's expression as they both realised what just happened, stray tears rolled down Astrid's face as she stared up at Joy in surprise while her cats ears were down, she so vulnerable and caught underneath Joy..
Though as she saw how the Ician woman seemed to trying to form a sentence but couldn't and the stray tears rolling down her tears and onto Astrid's skin that immediately melted the tears upon the slightest touch, Astrid's expression softened as at the sight of Joy before she hestitately wrapped her warm arms around the Ician's back...
She had thought about kissing Joy but seeing it was a emotional wrecking time, she didn't seem to be taking advantage of Joy's emotional state so she brought the woman down into a warm embrace, as she remembered when Joy always ran up to her when she was a noble, she always got scolded by her parents for not having a liking to any of her suitors and whenever Astrid was at her window she would run to her and hug her, before crying into her soft warm body..
But back then Astrid called Joy ice for brain especially the time she nearly caused Astrid to fall out the window when Joy charged into her for a hug, but after Astrid always used to embrace her, comfort her with little hesitation but never told her not to cry, in fact she told Joy to tell it was alright to cry and let it all out.. and she did until she stopped cry and became her joyful joy again.
Now Astrid smiled faintly at the memory before sighing slightly and opening her mouth to say her final comment on the matter at hand as her one of her hands went to Joy's head and stroke her long blue hair as if she was comforting her.
[+darkred "Your majesty..you are a woman before you are a title, there is no shame in crying, everyone in this world as at least cried once if not more times in their life, because we are all living beings with negative and positive emotions, some might think emotions are our weakness's, they are in a sense, but they make us living beings, those who refuse to show their emotions, hurt more because they build up what their feeling and that build up will grow and grow until those feelings burst in one go to the they can't be controlled anymore... to the point they could hurt the one's around them accidently, or they become withdrawn towards others and cause themselves more pain my dear..
What I'm trying to say is even if you are a queen my dear, or a commoner like me, you are still a woman who has emotions, even if you compose yourself like most nobility or royalty think they should, you still feel no mater how hard you compose yourself, no matter what you are, everyone has the right to cry, to feel what they feel.... I may be a simple commoner compared to you your highness, but as a fellow woman who feels the same as you, who has something missing in their life, who feels lonely since our loneliness started, I would like to ask if we could stay like this for a little longer, to comfort you, if not us both..?" ]
Astrid explained/stated/asked in the most comforting tone she could muster to comfort Joy even though she needed comforting herself, though for some reason she always didn't seem to care for her own needs when she was close to the ones she cared about especially Joy, who she couldn't develop anger for even the woman betrayed her when she lost the fight with Davis, when he was a mere prince...Though how could've Joy have known Davis had cheated in the duel when Astrid didn't tell her a thing, though even if Astrid could have told Joy, she doubted Joy would have believed her...
But she wanted to forget that for now because it hurt Astrid to much to think about, in fact stray tears still fell even know at the memory of it and the loneliness that chased after her after she was forced to leave the castle, but she kept her body heat to stable level that gave comfort to Joy and Joy's cool skin was a wonder to her own that she leaned to the side and planted her cheek onto Joy's head as her warm clawed hands went through the Ician's hair, as she waited for Joy's reaction if she had one or waited for Joy to move on her own when she was finished being comforted by Astrid.
[+blue "When I found out she had died I was heartbroken. I was actually looking forward to have a child with the man I liked. Unfortunately..."]
[+blue "There was never a moment that he didn't hate me. I sometimes wonder if he's related to my father."]
[+blue "He and I were never lovers. I don't think Rico's even capable of loving another. Took me a while to figure that out. I was dumb as a teenager. I let his good looks blind me,"]
[+blue "I never asked myself why. I just did because I knew I could. Why should she be robbed of having a life? At the time I imagined having a cute robot maid around. So I took the unborn fetus... and used that as an ingredient to make Mika's body. She's three years old now. Has DNA just like anyone else. Yet some don't consider her alive. Her soul is in there. Her blood is in there. I don't see anything wrong with giving her a new body,"]
[+blue "I will understand if you find that creepy. Or wrong. Or cruel. I guess since I've always been able to do anything I want... I don't think about the consequences of my actions,"]
[+blue "I've abused my powers so many times. Rico... Well... I was too stubborn to let him go at the time. I pretended to be his wife. When he found out it was me he slept with he cursed me. I learned the hard way not to mess with a demi god. Besides my family you are the first person I've told. I might be a little upset, but I'd be much more relieved if you were honest about how you feel. Do you think I'm a horrible person?"]
Mixed feelings went through Naiomi's heart, soul and mind, at first she felt sorrow for Amy as she explained how she obviously felt about Mika's death, though that sorrow turned into teeth gritting Anger/Jealousy for the guy who made love with Amy without feeling anything for her except hatred...
He had helped bring a wonderful child into the world and all he would feel was hatred for his lover...immediately Naiomi thought the guy didn't deserve Amy, but it was the Ician's choice to fall in love with him.. though it also caused her to wonder why did she fall in a guy like that.. Soon Naiomi stopped wondering because Amy had explained why she fell in love with the male.
He was a Demi God.. This guy who's name was Rico was a Demi god, Naiomi wanted to face-palm herself because she knew that most Demi gods were players just like their God parent, the rest were a__holes and they didn't bother to hide it because they thought anyone would fall in love with them no matter their personality was, They had such big ego's that she wondered how in the world could the planet carry one let alone them all...
Though Naiomi didn't get to face-palm herself because what Amy said next smacked her in the face for her... This Rico cursed Amy.. by killing Mika while she was still a fetus inside of the Ician woman..Naiomi's face went white with horror or anger or maybe both, she didn't know though what she did know was she was beyond the state of shock... He...He killed Mika.. just because he found out Amy was having his child... He..He.. killed her because he was a Demi God and he could.....He used a poor woman because he could..
She was now proven right that nobody should have the right to have power over life and death not even the full gods let alone demi one's, Luckily she had her back to Amy because she didn't want the Ician to see her so emotional, she bent forward and lent her forehead on Mika's who did no wrong but exist.. though that was enough for this Demi God Rico to kill her when she was just a fetus, she didn't get the chance to live, she didn't get the chance to live like everything being had the right to.... She didn't get the chance to live just like her unborn sibling..

Tears poured out of Naiomi's eyes... she still had tears left..., she brought her arms up and wrapped them around Mika's petty frame, before leaning further down and embraced the small child in her arms, even when Amy asked her the final question about if she thought the Ician woman was a horrible person, she didn't let go off Mika, she didn't turn her head to towards Amy, but she opened her mouth to answer Amy truthfully.
[+red " .....No.. I don't think you're a horrible person Amy, you're just a reckless one that doesn't think before they act, you may be smart in machinery but you're a ice for brains with other things, like the history of Gods.. Gods are players. They have so many lovers they lose count how many they have but the love them all , the rest are a___holes and don't even try to hide it because they think anyone would fall in love with them despite their personality, because of their other traits, like charm and of course their looks...
They always take and they rarely give, when they do there is always something in it for them, they use the lovers for their own gain until they are tired of them and search for another unfortunate being to captivate and use them as their play thing...
Mika's death proves that no one should have the power over life and death not even full gods let alone Demi ones, even the lady of resurrection should not have that power... I know she exists.. but I've never believed in her because.... my wished I wished every year for my birthday was never granted, I wished for my family to be resurrected, they were murdered, butchered and devoured by a adult male Ician... who we worked for. He ripped my father apart first then ate him, then he pulled my mother apart like a Christmas cracker, the prize was my unborn sibling...
She hanged by her cored on my mother's womb, she was dead immediately she didn't have the chance to have her first breath or cry at the world, my mother was still alive, just barely and she kept telling me to run until I eventually did...
I can't remember anything else, but I do know you can't believe trust Gods or Goddess's to help you...because I never saw them again after they died, I prayed to her to give back my family but they never showed up, I refused the thought of them abandoning me...and blamed the goddess instead, that is way I don't believe in resurrection..
Also the reason, I asked why you brought Mika back to life with machinery is because a human man I used to live with and work for, he worked with robotics' fixing every robot he got his hands on but.. his wife died.. and it killed him inside but resurrected a unhealthy desire to bring his wife back with robtic's...
He managed to do it.. but his wife went mad because she couldn't grow old or have children of her own, her circuits went busted and she tried to kill us, she killed her husband before I could take the finishing blow to her head with a axe...They were both gone together, but I learned that you can't bring someone back to life without nasty after effects Amy......
Even now Mika has desires of playing with other children her age, but she fears she might hurt them because of her superhuman strength and cause them to fear her, even when I took her to the park that day she broke every ride with her strength, you should've seen the grief on the squirts face.
The face of a little girl seeing herself as a monster because of her strength, She burst into tears Amy, burst into tears because she feared I didn't like her because of her powers, I tried to tell her that wasn't true but she ran away from me and into the forest..
That was when a male tiger creature hunted her and ripped out her core, I killed him, but I can't remember what happened until Mika called out my name, I must've went overboard because there was nothing left of him but blood, bits of brain and bone marrow dust..
I'm not trying to make you feel bad Amy.. I'm trying to make you aware that Mika might have innocent desires that she might not be able to have.. unless you could advance her robotics' just a little to her strength, maybe give her a programme that stabilizes her strength, helps her to control it so she can feel she can be a normal child, like she deserves to be...
I just don't want her to be alone... It hurts... when people see you as a monster, especially when you're a child, you are ignored by the other kids or feared by them.. you are left alone in a corner of the playground because nobody want's to play with you, when it's home time they rush to their parents you wished you had, even they look at you as if you are the plague itself...All you ever wanted was someone to understand you, to love you... but nobody seems to care because they think you're dangerous... It's... not fair.. It's not fair.. ITS NOT FAIR DAMMIT!!"]
Naiomi answered Amy the best she could and as truthful as she could and even told her a bit of her past only to prove that Goddesses and Gods weren't trustworthy even though they have so much power they use it for their own gain and nobody else's, if they did they would still gain something from it anyway, before telling her about the man and the woman she lived with before she lived with Astrid, how Robotics' wasn't a vey good idea of brining back the dead because of after effects, Then she explained how Mika wished to be a normal girl without super strength she couldn't control and how she felt about having unstable super strength...
Finally Naiomi suggested that Amy should give Mika some sort of programme to help her control her powers, so she could be a average strength child like she deserved to be.. she didn't deserve to suffer or see herself as a monster because of her powers...
Though it was Amy's choice what to do with her daughter so Naiomi held Mika in the same embrace but a little tighter as she screamed out her final sentence saying something wasn't fair, her sobs were more hearable now, though Naiomi didn't notice that Amy was smiling/grinning through her explanation, if she had she would have slapped Amy stupid even if she felt something else inside she could have expressed something else than a smile or a grin.. but fortunately she didn't notice because she was in her own grief..
until she remembered that Amy must've been sad about Mika's death and her lovers betrayal, so she eventually lifted her head up and turned her head towards Amy, who had her arm around her shoulder, her eyes went small with shock as she saw the expression on Amy's face....
A smile.... a grinning smile.. at her child's suspense.. her body grew hotter.. fangs grew in Naiomi's mouth, her eyes slit into red cat eyes...she gently let go off Mika and kissed her cheek gently, silently wishing pleasant dreams because the world out of her dreams weren't going to be pleasant for a moment or two...
Then her hand went flying towards Amy's face, who sat besides her.. and a loud hot slap went through the room, Amy earned herself a big hand mark against her cheek, Then Naiomi tackled her to the floor, causing her to straddle the Ician... Red hair hid the feelings that Naiomi was feeling now, but the heat coming of her made it clear she was angry, soon she opened her mouth to vocal her anger.
[+red ".....How could you?...How can you smile at your daughter's suspense like this Amy...?, I never thought you were cruel while you were explaining things to me, but I must've didn't notice the expression you had on your face while you were explaining it to me...
You were always caring to Mika, everyone around you...was it all a cruel joke?.. you actually made me think a Ician would genuinely care, you actually made me think I was wrong about all Ician's, that they didn't care just for their fucking selves....
You didn't let Mika go because you cared for her, you didn't let her go because you didn't want to lose a chess piece of your game, to make people believe you're good person, a mother figure!"]
Naiomi started of with a low growl before she shouted at Amy, she was so angry her skin veined up, her ear rings started to appear on her ears, but soon her angry expression turned into the most heartbroken expression she ever made because she never felt so heartbroken, since her parents died, she gritted her teeth before she gripped Amy by the collar of her shirt and started to shake the woman slowly at first but as she speaks her shaking will get harshly.
[+red " Tell me I'm wrong...Amy Tell me I'm wrong, Tell me what I just said is not true, Tell me I'm wrong, Tell me you do care about Mika and you didn't bring her back just for your own gain!"]
Naiomi hadn't been this upset since her parents death, she doesn't now why she is getting this upset over a Ician, Ician's were all the same, they play tricks on their prey making them believe they care but they don't...they feel pleasure when they deceived somebody and see their eyes go into such a heartbroken expression just like Naiomi's now...
But somehow Naiomi knew Amy was different than any other Ician she met, in fact she felt like she had met Amy somewhere before, but she couldn't recall where, though inside somehow she knew Amy was someone who had genuinely cared for everyone around her, she was a person she could find comfort with whenever she had a problem....
From the moment Naiomi saw Amy she thought she was looking at a long lost friend that had unfortunately disappeared from her memories..she felt like they were so close together.. that she couldn't really ever forget even a little would still remain in her mind, because her heart would always remember...
That is why she could cry now like this to Amy and demand her to tell her she was wrong, she wanted to be told she was wrong even if what she said was actually true, she felt like somehow she couldn't bare the thought of not having Amy in her life...So she wanted.. no needed to hear what she said was wrong..even if it was true.., Soon Naiomi got more depressed as Amy didn't answer her, so she opened her mouth once last time as she stopped shaking Amy about and laid down on top her.. as she tried to control her anger even if it would turn into more tears, make her appear helpless and vulnerable.
[+red " Please.... please tell me I'm wrong..please Amy, just tell me I'm wrong..dammit.."]
Naiomi resorted to begging, something she wouldn't exactly do, but for some reason it was something she would do for this Ician, something in her heart dragged her to the point of a broken point, pulled her to lay down on Amy and beg her to tell her she was wrong.... something that Naiomi didn't understand or remember but somehow she felt like she wouldn't mind if she got betrayed by everyone else even Astrid and Valerie...
but if she got betrayed by Amy.. she felt like she wouldn't be able to function, and this scared the hell out of her... though for now she desperately needed Amy's answer, Naiomi hopped it would come soon as she nuzzled her body not to Amy's and put her face into the Ician's throat while she had Amy's collar still in her hands but in a lose grip now...and everything that appeared on Naiomi immediately vanished like they were never there.
[left [pic http://i872.photobucket.com/albums/ab283/Amy_Vlanderson/Blue%20and%20Red/MAY-2.jpg]] The events at breakfast left May feeling a bit empty. She returned to her room to continue her studies. Since she was homeschooled she didn't have any set time she needed to finish, but her desire to learn meant she was at her books often. This left her social life lacking at times. The blue haired girl sat at her desk with pen at hand. Her cellphone rested next to her book. It was a gift from her older sister. Amy didn't want her younger sibling missing out on the world. May picked up her phone. The style of it was a touch screen. A tiny heart key chain hung from the bottom. That was a gift from a friend of hers. [#04B3AD [b "My mother did give me permission. And I really would love to see her again,"]] May spoke to herself. Her cheeks turned a bright shade of red. Her tiny fingers dialed at a rapid speed. The ringing tone left her in a state of great anticipation.
[#562e12 [b "Hello?"]] a soft child's voice responded. May couldn't keep her excitement in for too long. [#04B3AD [b "Hi, Ashley!"]] she shouted. Her face flared up once again. She peaked her head out of her room to see if anyone was around to notice her shouting. [#04B3AD [b "It's me, May!"]] she spoke loudly. Equal levels of excitement returned to the princess's ear. [#562e12 [b "May! It's good to hear you again! I missed my bff!"]] the voice over the phone spoke. The two talked for quite a bit. May and Ashley exchanged stories of recent events that transpired since the two last spoke. [#562e12 [b "My big brother got his head stuck in the wall twice! He can be so clumsy sometimes!"]] Ashley spoke. [#04B3AD [b "I've got good news! My mom is okay with you sleeping over!"]] May shouted. A girly squeal followed. May also squealed just as much. [#562e12 [b "I'll have my big brother bring me with him. He's about to leave. I'll bring everything!"]] Ashley spoke. Neither of the two young teens could hold in their pure energy.
The two continued talking to each other for a few more minutes. Once the call ended May was just too nervous and excited to continue her homework. She prepared her bedroom for her best friend and the slumber party. May focused her attention on her bed. Her hands stretched out as if to reach for it. A blue aura containing her spiritual energy pushed out of her form and onto the object before her. Her bed stretched out making it much bigger for the night to come. She used her magic to triple the amount of pillows she had for any possible pillow fort building. She enlarged her computer screen in case the two wanted to watch movies. The girl hardly noticed a maid peaking in after hearing the commotion in the princess's room. A blue ray of energy hit the maid's chest. She let out a scream upon seeing her breasts grow from an A to a DD. She ran out holding herself before May could see where the scream came from.
[right [pic http://i872.photobucket.com/albums/ab283/Amy_Vlanderson/ff480aee-a153-412d-8906-b9538ba1ffda_zpsd4971f56.jpg]] Joy's eyes couldn't help but to shed a few tears. The tears that fell froze to crystals before they hit the icy ground. Her composure returned to her after the brief moment of sadness. [#0C6991 [b "It does get lonely from time to time. I want my children to see their mother as strong. Even when I do have everything something's missing,"]] her voice had a dull, empty tone. She looked to Astrid. The queen's eyes spoke much of her longing. [#0C6991 [b "I'm sorry for the trouble we have caused,"]] Joy spoke. The warm touch of Astrid's hand felt nice and comforting. Joy looked down at their hands, and as she did her face turned red. She realized herself that she was blushing and quickly looked away. [#0C6991 [b "Being near you... Feels like deja vu. That story you told me. It feels like I've heard it from somewhere,"]] she spoke. Her heart started to beat faster. Her breathing quickened as well. It felt like a soft fever was taking over her form.
Joy pulled her hand away quickly. The queen felt a complex range of emotions. [#0C6991 [b "I'm sorry you have to see me this way. I'm sure I must look abstract. A queen should always keep her composure,"]] she spoke. She turned away from Astrid. Tears fell down her face. [#0C6991 [b "I'm glad you two had some rest,"]] she spoke. Her voice took much more energy to use as she tried to keep the sound of crying from being heard. Her body longed for the attention of a lover. As tempting as Astrid was Joy tried to keep her thoughts elsewhere. Everything she held inside was coming out. Her fears. Her loneliness. Her desires. Her guilt. So many questions popped into her head about the faithfulness of her husband. Soon she started to question her own feelings towards him. Joy didn't have it in her to let the other woman see her cry. Her thoughts asked, [#0C6991 [i "If I'm even crying around her then what does it mean? I don't even cry in front of my own children."]]
Joy hadn't realized that her body did turn around. She threw herself onto the Nekoblaziken. She clung tightly onto Astrid. The queen opened her eyes to see her form laying on top of the other. Her face turned bright red. Her eyes were frozen open like a deer stuck in the headlights. To throw herself onto another and cuddle was not like Joy at all, but it didn't feel so wrong. The queen didn't know what else to do. She was never in a situation like this. Her lips tried to move, but words refused to leave them. Joy's heart was beating twice as much as it should. She could feel the pain it brought, but her body was stuck in this pose. Her breath shortened. Her vision blurred. It hurt a lot, but she couldn't move.

She never asked herself that question before. Her eyes seemed to show a hint of fear. [+blue [b "When I found out she had died I was heartbroken. I was actually looking forward to have a child with the man I liked. Unfortunately..."]] she paused for a moment to calm herself, [+blue [b "There was never a moment that he didn't hate me. I sometimes wonder if he's related to my father."]] Amy chuckled at the thought and even showed a fake gag. [+blue [b "He and I were never lovers. I don't think Rico's even capable of loving another. Took me a while to figure that out. I was dumb as a teenager. I let his good looks blind me,"]] she spoke. Amy seemed happy to be talking about this. Though her voice exposed she was nervous about something. She tucked her daughter in bed and made sure there was nothing left undone. She turned to Naiomi and wrapped an arm around her shoulder.
[+blue [b "I never asked myself why. I just did because I knew I could. Why should she be robbed of having a life? At the time I imagined having a cute robot maid around. So I took the unborn fetus... and used that as an ingredient to make Mika's body. She's three years old now. Has DNA just like anyone else. Yet some don't consider her alive. Her soul is in there. Her blood is in there. I don't see anything wrong with giving her a new body,"]] Amy explained. She had a huge grin plastered on her face. On the inside she was worried how her maid might react. She sat back down on the bed and sighed. [+blue [b "I will understand if you find that creepy. Or wrong. Or cruel. I guess since I've always been able to do anything I want... I don't think about the consequences of my actions,"]] she added. She folded her arms over her chest. [+blue [b "I've abused my powers so many times. Rico... Well... I was too stubborn to let him go at the time. I pretended to be his wife. When he found out it was me he slept with he cursed me. I learned the hard way not to mess with a demi god. Besides my family you are the first person I've told. I might be a little upset, but I'd be much more relieved if you were honest about how you feel. Do you think I'm a horrible person?"]] she asked. Amy's smile was still on her face.

tried to bring his wife back to life with robotics, Naiomi always thought you only had one life and that was it, it was precious and should be lived to the fullest till death and death was another part of living because like a flower it leaves seeds new life to begin a new.. and shouldn't be played with even if you deeply want your love ones back she believed this because she wouldn't feel abandoned by her parents if the goddess of resurrection was indeed real...or yet she knew the goddess was real because she seen resurrected people but her heart didn't believe her parents wouldn't abandon her so she didn't believe in the goddess even though she was clearly real....As she stroked Mika's hair she went deep into her own thoughts untill Amy decided to react to her question which will cause her to come out from her thoughts and to reality.
might emotionally hurt Amy if she asked this question but it has to asked for Mika's sake 'for Mika's sake' was repeated in Naiomi's head to keep her from chickening out and open her mouth as she approached the bed and stroked Mika's hair before trying to make words come out.
[+red " No it's fine I've seen things like this before, what's different is Mika is more advanced....Amy I've deeply considered your feelings about Mika but I couldn't find any words that wouldn't emotionally hurt you in some sense but what I'm about to ask you is the least hurtful words I could think of.... Why... why did you bring Mika back to life like this?.."]
Naiomi explained/asked as she stroked Mika's hair gently as her eyes looked like she had seen the horror of death of a cyborg many times and forgot how to cry but didn't forget how to feel even though Mika wasn't dying Naiomi could picture ways she could by remembering the ways the less advanced ones did while she worked and lived with that man who used to fix robots and
