ari nudged him playfully and smiled at erik. "it's good to see you, erik. i hope everyone has been treating you and the others while i've been unconscious."
[i "I heard our queen was awake. Thought I'd check in myself,"] he spoke softly.
[b "Pull up a chair. You're the hundredth visitor today,"] Alex exaggerated, slightly annoyed at not having her to himself for a little bit longer.
Ari giggled and said. "You're evil." She smiled and paused smelling Erik outside the door. "You can come in, Erik."
Left alone with Ari, Alex's grin turned mischievous. [b "Remind me to smother you with love when they're growing up, to permanently traumatize those two. Mostly Michael. "]
"as if you're not like that with your girlfriend." She teased and gave Ari a kiss on the cheek. "I'm going to go study, okay? I love you."
His eyes grew soft. [b "Always,"] he pressed a kiss to her knuckles.
[i "Okay, well, I'm gonna go throw up now. Mother dearest, glad to see you're doing well,"] Michael dropped a kiss to her forehead and headed for the door. [i "Emily, feel free to stay with the gross lovebirds. Or run while you still can."]
She smiled at him gently and said. "For right now, just stay with me." She squeezed his hand and watched him.
His gaze drops to stare at her blanket. [b "I'm caught between wanting to be selfish and keep them here, but also eager for them to be born so I can raise them from cute little newborns. My brain doesn't know how to handle this situation."]
"we'll be leaving in a few days after mom gets crowned as queen and addresses our people." Emily said and smiled gently.
Ari squeezed his hand gently and said. "Alex, you're tensing up too much."
[b "When do you guys have to go back?"] Alex looked to them. [b "It doesn't have to be so soon, does it?"]
He wanted to ask them more questions than he could even think to write down. He wanted them to tell him what not to do when raising them, so that he'd be able to fix whatever mistakes he may have made with them.
"stop teasing your father." ari chided and smiled at her son. "but i am proud of both of you and how much you've grown and use your powers for the good of people."
Alex felt a tug of sadness. He'd forgotten that Michael and Emily would eventually leave them to go back to their own time. He knew they see them again, but it didn't make it easier. [b "I'll make sure to raise you both under a strict rule of no dating until you're fifty,"] his lips raised in a small smile.
[i "If I look anything like you do at age fifty, then I'll never get a date ever,"] Michael jabbed back.
[b "Wait, am I ugly in the future?"] Alex's face looked horrified. [b "Am I full of wrinkles and jowls?!"]
Ari smiled gently and said. "Alex, these two need to go back to us in their time, relax. We'll be getting ready here before ours come, okay?"
Alex groaned and dropped his head to his hands. [b "I think I might need to join Jean's calming mind classes."]
He snickered slightly and smirked. "Dad, we'll be born in a few years, you have time to perfect Uncle Scott's methods."
