ari snickered and gently scooped the pup up getting him to let go of sabertooth. "i don't think you're scaring him, dela." she said and pet him. she smiled at sabertooth and said. "thanks for being patient with him."
[b "No throwing bricks!"] Alex sighed, calling out to Kurt and Kitty who were testing each other's reflexes.
His head was pounding and it wasn't even lunch. He was a pathetic puppy in love, missing Ari and Dela even though it had only been a couple of hours since they'd left their room.
[i "Take a bit of a break,"] Scott approached with Jonas. [i "You're going to drive everyone crazy barking orders like that. Let them have some fun while they work. Its not like those two would even think of hurting each other."]
[b "Did Scott Summers just tell [i me] to take a break?"] Alex was horrified. [b "What have I become?"]
Jonas smiled, amused. [i "You're becoming a king worthy of his people. Caring for your countrymen is a honourable thing."]
[b "Only the King Consort, not king,"] Alex corrected, smiling in return. [b "Ari is the rightful queen, I'm at her side for support."]
ari had to go to a meeting with the military advisors to discuss distributions of resources and compensation for families who lost their loved ones as well as finding and dealing with any stragglers from the enemy's army. she paused and watched dela with sabertooth giggling slightly as he tugged on the giant man's jacket with a growl.
[b "Long live the queen,"] he murmured as he drifted off.
The next day began in a rush of activity. Before breakfast, Alex was off to oversee distribution of the construction repairs of the east wing. Apparently it had taken severe damage during the last siege and was in dire need of rebuilding. With Storm's assistance, he assigned a group of relatively strong mutants as well as two men from Jonas' group to begin clearing out debris.
She smiled and snuggled into him. "It will br a wonderful kingdom."
[b "Goodnight, my queen,"] he fell onto the bed beside her, wrapping an arm around her waist. [b "Tomorrow we start building the kingdom."]
She giggled and stretched putting one of alex's shirts on before crawling under the covers.
[b "Looks like I'm going to be bribing him with steaks and belly rubs,"] Alex sighed dramatically, throwing an arm over his eyes. [b "I need at least one person to love me more than they love you, and if that person is a wolf puppy, then so be it. We Summers men require constant praise, you know. We're high maintenance."]
She giggled and kissed him. "He'll love both of us.... But if you give him a lot of treats and spoil him..."
Grumbling about how unfairly cute the pup was, he obeyed her orders and helped her out of the tub. Poor Dela didn't even stir when Alex carefully scooped him up with the fluffy towel. [b "Is it too much to hope he'll like me more than he likes you?"]
she smiled and was about to answer when she noticed dela was now fast asleep. she smiled gently and looked up at alex to show him. "i think it's time for us to go to bed too."
He chuckled against her neck. [b "Is my undying love not enough of a treat for you?"]
Their newly adopted wolf pup couldn't watch them any longer as his eyes slowly drifted shut with the exhaustion of his day setting in.
"Do i get a treat if i do it?" She asked and relaxed petting dela.
He smirked. [b "Only a little."]
Grabbing the soap and a washcloth, he busies himself with scrubbing carefully at the skin of her shoulders and back. [b "I don't suppose you'd let Hank double check your wound tomorrow, to make sure no infection is setting in?"]
She shivered and whined a little. "You're teasing."
