Arora followed Valentine, leaning against her at little. It was comforting, and Arora needed it,”Tea sounds nice.”
A good cup of tea always made her feel better, so she appreciated Valentine taking the time to make her some. She felt Valentine rub her back and looked up. She smiled at the reassurance. Somehow Valentine knew what was bothering her. She supposed she was just that obvious,”Thank you. I really hope so. Sakura listened, so maybe the others will too.”
She looked back at the table. There was the other, possibly bigger problem Azura had told her about. Even if she stopped her siblings fighting, there was still Anankos. If they didn’t find a way to stop him, he would find another way to make Nohr and Hoshido fight. She still needed a way to figure that out without causing problems with the curse. That would have to wait, she supposed. She realized she was frowning and tried to wipe the concerned look off her face.
Valentine looked sadly she could quite understood how everyone felt as she didn’t have any sibling. However, should knew when someone need a shoulder. "Yea we should give them some time." She grabbed Arora round the shoulders and pulled her along. "Come on let me get you some tea. They can join us when they feel like it." She pulled her away and move them back to the eating area. Setting Arora at a table she put some water on to boil to make some tea that her mother would make her to feel better. As she waited she went back over and rubbed her back. "Don’t worry you'll see your family again. If I seen anything in that last few days is that you are full of surprises." She believed that it would only be a matter of weeks before one or two more people would join them.
Arora just kept an eye on them as Morgan chased Lucien around. If it weren’t for the situation it would have been a perfect scene of siblings running around. It wasn’t really a game though, and Arora tensed slightly when Morgan finally caught Lucien.
She bit her lip as she watched them. It was clear they were both hurting, and she didn’t feel it was her place to step in despite the urge to comfort them. He just seemed so… so much like her. Young and scared. Morgan didn’t seem so old either, she could relate to looking after a younger sibling.
Even as emotional as she was feeling, she was a little surprised when she noticed tears falling down her cheeks. She wiped them away quickly. She didn’t want to bother any of them with the aching in her own chest. She missed her siblings, but right now it was about Lucien and Morgan.
She saw Valentine looking at her, and cleared her throat quietly, hoping Valentine hadn’t caught her crying. She spoke quietly, hesitant to interrupt the moment the siblings clearly needed and that was long overdue,”Maybe we should give them a minute.”
Morgan chased him around for about ten minters before Lucien tired our and Morgan was able to catch him. The small girl was barely out of breath as she tackled her younger brother to the ground. They wrestled around a bit before Morgan was able to pin Lucien to the ground. Her face full of anger as she looked down on her brother. She raised her hand ready to strike him. However, as it came down it stopped mere inch from his chest. Instead tear feel from the girl's face. "Two dam years." She sniffed. "You been missing two dam years. No letters, no word to let us know that you doing okay. Nothing at all just a note that said I'm sorry." He eyes now filled with tears as the threated to spill over. "Do you know how worried we been. How worried I been. YOU PROMISED THAT WE WOULD NEVER LEAVE EACH OTHER AFTER MOM DIED." She finally let her tears go and she cluched his chest. "YOU PROMISED YET YOU STILL LEFT. WHY LUCIEN TELL ME WHY."
Lucien looked away his own face filled with is own tears. "It was better this..."
"BULLSHIT." She smacked him across the face. "A hundred year and you still can't lie. You left because you were afraid of losing them against wasn’t it."
He looked ready to protest but he arm hooved threating ready to smack him again for another lie. "Yes." He finally said his own tears spilling out. "I couldn’t stay in fear of losing mommy or daddy again. I lost them once I couldn’t do it again so I ran I'm sorry" Morgan hugged him as he cried.
"It okay they are fine that you are worried but that doesn't give the right to run away and worry everyone." She said petting his hair. Suddenly Morgan did look so small as she cuddled her younger brother. It truly was a scene of a big sister taking care of her younger brother.
Valentine watched in utter shock at the whole thing. She never imaged she would see something like this. Every time she had talked to Lucien he seemed so calm and seeing this she truly saw how young he was. She looked at Arora to see how see was reacting.
Morgan wasn’t going to wait. Arora whimpered a little as she was pulled along by her ear. She pretty much had to follow.
Arora breathed a sigh of relief when she saw that they hadn’t caught Lucien at too bad a moment. The relief was short lived, because the siblings clearly had issues, and Lucien wanted to run from them.
Arora rubbed her ear, stunned. Valentine’s question pulled her attention back. “Uh…” She watched Lucien run, and the apparently murderous rage of Morgan. He only seemed old to them, but that was his older sister. “Only if things look like they’re getting out of hand…”
She looked at Valentine,”Not sure I want to get between them, but I don’t want anyone hurt badly. So… if we have to, I’ll try and stop them, and you get help.”
Arora didn’t much like the idea of having to do that, but she wasn’t about to send Valentine to get between two dragons. She walked out slowly to follow the two, and watch them. She wouldn’t let Morgan hurt Lucien, but she also wasn’t going to let Lucien run too far.
Morgan turned to Arora her eyes cold and black. "No, I looked two whole years for him." She said darkly "Shower or not your leading me to him." She then grabbed the larger girl ears and stated dragging her behind her. "Now point and lead me to that scum bag brother of mine." Valentine eyes went wide as the smaller girl pull Arora around like it was nothing. She wanted to help but she didn’t want to anger the girl anymore then she already was so instead she mouthed. 'I'm sorry' as she followed a bit behind them.
Luckily for Lucien he had just finished up and was mostly dressed but for his shirt and coat. He had no idea that his older sister was about to burst throw the door and burst she did. "YOU!" She said her eyes filled with anger as she noticed him. Lucien eye went just as wide as he saw his older sister standing in the door. "me." Was all he said as he felt the murderous intent of hers. Not stay around to see what she was going to do Lucien bolted out the other door. "Really running?" She cried out rushing after him.
Valentine who was now standing next to the freed Arora watched as Lucien ran from the much smaller girl. "Should we do something?" She asked a little shocked as she never seen the man act so scared of so thing so small. "It wired to see him act so young like." She then remembered someone saying that Lucien was very young in dragon years.
Arora nodded. Valentine was right, she seemed pretty mad at Lucien.
Letting her just barge in on Lucien showering wasn’t something that Arora really wanted to let happen. Arora scratched the back of her head while a blush creeped into her cheeks,”Um, he’s… sort of showering now? I’d rather not… you know. Even though I really do think it was awful to just leave a note.”
She could understand Morgan being angry. Arora would be quite upset herself if Lucien ran off without saying anything, even if he left a note. Still, she’d rather not have him cornered in the shower, and would prefer if Morgan were a little calmer first.
Valentine stated to see the similar in her face as she calmed down a bit. "Still what happen between her and Lucien she seems very mad." She points out. Morgan had started swearing in some tonged that didn’t make any since to Valentine. Her pasing had picked up as she walked back and forth.
"Do you have any idea how worried we been for him." She finally said turning to the both of them. "Mother almost passed out when he never came home. Father at least made it look like he wasn’t worried but I could tell he was. Plus, don’t even get me started on Leona. My grandmother she cired for weeks thinking her brother had died. And what did he leave to let us know that he was leaving. A note. A Naga-dam note. He couldn't even tell us himself that he was leaving no just chinked out and let us with that. OOOO when I get my hand on him." She finally stops as if finally hearing Arora question. "No thank you point me in the area he at because I'm about the beat some since into that little brat head."
Valentine took a few steps back from the anger in her eyes. "I think we should stay out of her way Lady Arora. She looks like she wants to kill."
Arora was startled when Morgan grabbed her arm. She was so strong, but Arora supposed that fit. Everything was very clear then. Clear and very loud.
Arora nodded to Valentine,”Yeah… And it lines up. She’s his sister. Hm…”
She seemed pretty upset. Arora tilted her head,”Lucien is fine. He’s busy at the moment. Did you want to stay for dinner? You’re more than welcome to.”
Morgana eye lit up as she heard that name and grabbed Arora arm tightly. For a girl her size her grip was quite strong. "YOU SEEN MY BABY BROTHER WHERE IS HE? IS HE OKAY?" She yelled shaking the poor girl in her iron grip. Valentine took a few steps back as she looked at the fire in Morgana eyes. "OOOO when I find him he in so much trouble." She finally let go of Arora as she stated pacing back and forth mudding to herself about something.
"You okay," Valentine asked after Arora had recovered. "Is that true is she part of Lucien family?" She couldn’t see it as he was quite calm and well behaved but this girl was nothing like him. She was loud and very annoying. "I don’t see it how?"
Arora could tell Morgan and Valentine weren’t getting off on the right foot. Or at least that Valentine didn’t have much patience for Morgan.
While Valentine clearly didn’t believe Morgan at first, Arora did. She looked up at the portals above them. Would exploring them be worthwhile, or just dangerous? Would she just get lost?
Arora looked back at Morgan, her head tilted in thought. She’d started thinking the more Morgan talked. That name sounded familiar, and she was a dragon too. Was it possible? Arora had a suspicion, but wasn’t sure. “Well, I’m not sure the time matters that much. Time moves differently in different places, so… I mean, what I’m trying to get at is… would the person you’re looking for be Lucien?”
Morgan looked up from picking up books. "O um sure am." She said finally packing up the rest of her stuff before returning to her feet. "Nice to meet you. Arora you said and you are." She turned to Valentine. "Names Valentine." She said gripping the edge of her sword. "Where did you come from and how did you get here." Morgan laughed. "Well it feel apparently." She pointed up to the sky.
Valentine slapped her face and shock her head before turning to Arora. "I think she knocked a few screws loose when she hit the ground." Morgan just seemed to ignored that comment as she kept on. "And I'm from another world." She oodd wiggling her fingers at them. Again, Valentine face palmed. "No really I am. I'm you do know that all these portals lead to other world right." She stopped to let that sink in. "But no I'm not really lost as I can find my way back home if I need however I'm looking for someone." She stopped to think for a second. "They went missing a few year... ago."
Arora was trying to figure out what to say next, but Valentine had more or less taken care of that. Except then the girl was gone. Arora frowned, just as confused as Valentine, only to jump in surprise when the scene repeated and the girl fell from the sky again.
She finally had a name. And… “Ah, are you a dragon too? Sorry, I should introduce myself. I’m Arora. Um, if you’re lost maybe we can help?”
At this point Arora just really didn’t want Morgan to fall from the sky again. Even though Morgan seemed unharmed, it was painful to listen to.
The girl tilted her head a little but didn’t say any at first. "So I guess I'm still in the outer rime then." She said looking up at the sky and the many portals in the sky. "Well shoot that the last time I ever buy a magic book off Annie again." She then turned away from them a pulled a book out from under her coat and started reading it.
"WHO IN THE WORLD ARE YOU." Valentine yelled finally able to get her voice as she turned to the Arora. Her face was red and mixed with anger and confection at being ignored. The girl then closed her book and turn back to them. "Sorry about dropping in I'll be going bye." She then dissabered in a flash of green light and a gust of wind. Valentine stood mouth open again. "What just..."
She never got to finish her sentence as another familiar scream could be heard with an equally familiar crash in the same spot happened. The girl from before had just fallen again before she sat up and rubbed her face. "ow why does it keeps bring me here?" She said looking up at the too. "Sorry but it seems that my spell keeps bring me to this spot." She then stood up and dust herself off. "Hello my name Morgan the Tactician." She then took a bow casuing a few of her things to fall form her over clock. A few books a ring pin and paper and lastly a dragon stone. "Aaa my stuff" She scream diving after it all.
Arora looked puzzled when Valentine just stopped talking, than turned to look up at whatever was distracting her.
She looked surprised as well when she saw someone falling. It was too late to do anything but watch them hit the ground. Arora flinched at the sound. She was even more surprised to see the person was apparently alright.
Arora just blinked for a moment, trying to figure out how to answer. She was still in shock. How did the girl survive that? Wait, pointed ears? Arora wouldn’t have necessarily thought much about them a few weeks ago, but now she knew her own pointed ears weren’t just an odd quirk.
“Oh, um… I… I’m not quite sure how to… describe this place… Are you alright?”
