With the imagine painted in her mind, she just couldn't get passed it. Aether's muscles was tense when she spoke to him, saying some things she wished she had said before. [b [#00cca3 "Well you shouldn't have kissed her. You made her think you liked her. Not everyone wants to do things for research like me Soren." ]] She frowned and kept on hitting him with what she had in mind.
Then he went onto saying about...someone else he had in mind. For a second, her expression softened. [i Nope, he could be playing you. ] [b [#00cca3 "You probably didn't even think about really dating me too did you? ]] Her tone strong and clear.
Aether shook her head, [b [#00cca3 "I did not hurt Jake or Luke. I am not upset that you personally kissed her or want to date her, I'm upset because you hurt her. And I thought Jace would talk if I did more. ]] And he left. Oh, how mad he made her. He probably treated other AI's horribly, like this. He probably played around with them and ditched them.
Her AI comforted her through the night. He turned himself into a tablet and told her it was going to be okay. It made her smile. She fell asleep, wrapping herself in blankets, even if she was beside a warm fire. A horrible dream reached her, and when her eyes opened, she felt pretty bitter. She stared at the fabric of the sofa, poking at it. Her bunny wasn't there. Where? Aether sat up and noticed her bunny was definitely not here. Where did he go?
She got up on her feet and noticed Soren's bedroom door creaked up. Her AI had sunk out a little earlier into Soren's room to talk to his AI. Aether looked through the bathroom, kitchen, calling for him, and decided to give and open Soren's room, just taking a peak. And then she saw him, on the floor squeaking away to his AI. Aether sighed and lifted him up, [b [#00cca3 "You can't be in here." ]] She whispered to him and walked right out. He squeaked, trying to break free from her, but she wouldn't allow it. She sat down on the sofa again and wasn't sure what to do now. Where would they go? How would they remedy this? [i Do you still want to go on a date with him? ]
No way! He was just like, just like that first guy she kissed. She frowned and turned her AI into a tablet.
When he saw the reward, Soren was pretty happy. Their hard work gave them a large sum of money. He would be able to go anywhere and make another home if he wanted to, but he was going to put it into his savings for now. He walked back to the sled and when they headed back to the cabin, Soren felt the silence and knew something was up. Aether had been avoiding him.
It wasn't until they got inside and they both started arguing about what happened. He faced her, listened and was surprised to hear that she was really upset with him and how she called him a jerk. It made him feel bad, but he already did feel bad. He didn't mean to lead on Kat, but at the same time, he just wanted her to have more confidence. LIke if she could get a guy like him, she could get anyone.
[b [#F78F18 "Of course not. She just wanted to know what it was like to kiss, so I kissed her! I gave her what she wanted"]] he told her, sighing at the thought of her thinking that it made her feel cheap. He didn't mean it in that way at all.
He didn't want to be mad at her, but she was making him so frustrated. Soren let out a deep sigh and just shook his head [b [#F78F18 "I said it, but if I didn't already have someone else in mind to date, maybe when I came back it would happen"]] he stated, then blaming her as well. She did the same thing, kissing some guy she didn't know and he knew she had an attraction for them too.
[b [#F78F18 "Yes, but you didn't need to go that far with Jace. You also did that willingly"]] he left and closed the bedroom door, frowning and then climbing into bed. He let his bunny rest on top of his head and then he just sighed sadly [b [#F78F18 "I can't believe she thinks I'm a jerk. Why does any of that matter to her, it's not like I'll see Kat again anyway"]] he spoke to his bunny and just tried his best to forget it and fall asleep for the night. It was still tough and he felt bad for being mad at her, but she started it and accused him first.
Aether dismissed the notification a bit too quickly, not noticing what it was for. She kept on contemplating on how wrong she could have been about Soren. The second she stepped into the Cabin, she unleashed her frustration out on him. Her arms crossed as he talked, her eyes narrowing. Oh, as if she was going to fall for any lies or any excuses. No way, was she going to fall for any of it! [i Chances are if you date him, you're going to get bit. ] No way she was going to deal with any sort of embarrassment.
Her eyes rolled and she kissed her teeth, [b [#00cca3 "So, you kissed a girl, her first kiss, and plan to vanish the next day? What part of that sounds right to you? How the hell does that make a person feel pretty? It makes them feel cheap, and worse. If you didn't want to hurt her feelings Soren, than you should have not offered." ]] A lump formed in her throat and now when she looked at him, all she felt is heart ache.
Aether pointed at him, [b [#00cca3 "See, you did say it all. So, you would date her, right!?" ]] Her voice raised again. She inhaled a deep breath and exhaled, [b [#00cca3 "I didn't know I was leading on Jace, and I didn't know what was going on at all! He just did it! I'm still really, really confused. I don't understand this world and how they talk. I'm pretty sure they wanted to just test the limit with me anyway." ]] She frowned, finding it not fair to be pointing it on her. SHe didn't want to do any of that.
[b [#00cca3 "Well, I think what you did was a really...shitty thing. I only did those things because of the quest, and you also even suggested it with Luke. You did it all willingly..." ]] Aether sniffed, but held off any chances of crying, knowing this wasn't exactly personal but it felt like it. [b [#00cca3 "You didn't put confidence in her, you lowered it." ]] She crashed onto the sofa and hard his footsteps and heard the door close. [b [#00cca3 "Fine." ]] Aether rest her head on the sofa arm. She stared at her tablet and just noticed the quest reward. That made her eyes widen. Whoa. That was a whole lot of money for this quest!
[i But not enough to cheer me up. ] She frowned, and drew herself a blanket and a pillow. She turned her tablet into a bunny and set the fireplace on. She hugged her AI, taking in his comfort. [b [#00cca3 "I'm so glad you're not a jerk." ]] She said to him.
He tried to apologize to Kat, but he didn't hear her say anything else so he just left. He didn't know if he felt really bad or anything, but he didn't like it when people were upset with him, especially if he didn't mean anything by it.
Soren said goodbye to everyone and then he noticed a notification with a small pop up window.
[center [b Quest: Completed]]
[center [b Reward: 500,000 Credits, Alpha wolf spear, 500+ friendship points with towns people]]
Soren looked at the weapon in his inventory and thought that it was a good weapon. Maybe it wasn't so bad after all, he just wished they gave him more as well.
He made it back to the cabin and when he unhooked his wolf, he rubbed his hand down her head and then he had her turn back into a tablet. He walked into the room and then he let his tablet change back into a bunny to hop around and relax. At least the two of them could be alone. He didn't want to be filling his home with more wolves. He was too tired to deal with all of that right now.
That was when he turned and faced Aether, listening to her because she had something to tell him. He knew she was mad at him, but he didn't really know why. His eyes went over to hers and then he listened to her. She looked serious and it seemed like she didn't believe him at all. Soren sighed as she spoke, frowning a little because she did the same thing before.
He shook his head [b [#F78F18 "I only kissed her because she was so down about how nobody would want her. I wanted her to know that she was pretty, that she could get any guy she wanted. I didn't want her feeling bad about herself. What else could I do? I didn't want to hurt her feelings"]] he told her, shaking his head irritatedly.
Why did she even care? It wasn't like it involved her anyway, it didn't matter whether she was there or not and that made him upset because she wasn't there! How did she even know what happened? [b [#F78F18 "I did tell her all of that. I don't know it really could happen! Just like how you were kissing Jace and leading him on too. How is this any different?"]] he asked her, narrowing his teal eyes because she seemed to be disappointed in him.
[b [#F78F18 "I do know what it's like to be crazy nervous. It's hard and it's a scary feeling. Just because I did that by mistake doesn't make me a jerk. YOu have no right to say that when you did the same thing. You led on Luke and Jace. Why are you suddenly mad at me for trying to put some confidence in her?"]] he told her, seeing her walk to the sofa and he just sighed heavily. [b [#F78F18 "Fine. I'll take the bedroom then"]] he walked towards the room and just closed the door. He's never felt so frustrated and angry at the same time. What did he do to her? Why did she suddenly get the feeling of him being a jerk?
Kat wasn't listening to anymore of it. She pulled the covers over her head and ignored all that he was saying, hoping that he would just leave her be. She was hurt and yelling didn't feel like it would accomplish anything.
Her fingers ran through the white silky fur, stroking up to his head, giving his head a rub. He closed his eyes and nuzzled into her cheek. [b [#00cca3 "I'm sorry for keeping you as a accessory so long," ]] Aether pouted, and met the wolves silver eyes, [b [#00cca3 "Forgive me." ]] He barked. Aether grinned and stood tall, doing a turn to meet a pair of teal eyes. Aether exhaled deeply, an anger biting in her chest to speak up.
Aether hooked up her AI and decided to pet the top of Soren's AI, hoping that she would be okay with that. She boarded the sled and it wasn't long before the wind was blowing snow at them. [i It's better this way, quiet. ] Until, her body tensed up at saying what needed to said. They arrived soon enough, the conversation ending-at least she thought until they walked inside the unlit cabin. She removed her ear muffs, and stood in front of Soren when he narrowed his eyes at her.
[i He's not going to admit he made mistakes is he? ]
Aether scoffed, and let out her hands out, palms flat directing to him, [b [#00cca3 "Maybe because I don't know you. I value everyone's words." ]] Both of her eyebrows rose and her head dipped a bit forward with a look saying 'seriously.' Aether smirked, and narrowed her eyes, [b [#00cca3 "How? Did she hurt herself because you got her hopes all up? By kissing her back, saying you'd date her, that she's your type? I'm sorry Soren, but you don't get to decide whether you hurt her or not." ]] Ohhh, this was making her mad.
[b [#00cca3 "Your story and her story are not lining up and that AI did not look like she was an A class actress. From what I heard, she didn't make you do anything. She said you offered to try to kiss her. She's never dated anyone, and was nervous and didn't know how to act around you, and tried to take hints from a few friends. You also told her that you'd date her. You also said you'd go out with her when you came back. So you're lying!" ]] Her voice raised and her face when a little red. Her chest ached and she didn't know why this was hitting a bit close. [i Maybe because... ]
[b [#00cca3 "Then you should have told her to begin with, 'I don't want to date.' AI's can't make things up that detailed unless it's part of a mission. They are incapable. You were not doing her a favour pretending like you were into her. You don't get it do you? You don't understand what it's like to be crazy nervous, try what you know and then get completely heartbroken. You're just...You're a jerk!" ]] She breathed deeply. She walked up into the sofa and plopped herself down on it and pulled out her tablet.
[b [#00cca3 "I don't want to talk to you tonight." ]] She cleared out, refusing to look at him in the eye now.
He did believe that she could do it. Aether was smart and she was independent. She didn't need to depend on anyone and she spoke her mind. If anything happened, she'd lay out what she thought and then take care of things.
[b [#F78F18 "Of course I trust you. You're real"]] he smiled and then they headed into the meeting, listening to the treaty being formed before their eyes. He would give some input, but LUke, Jace, and Yale had a good idea of what each group wanted. They managed to make the document and their leaders signed the forms. Soren was getting excited that it was almost over and they were going to have some peace.
He hoped that the reward was worth it. Still, it felt good to resolve a conflict in a place he did enjoy staying in. Soren heard Kat and when he told her he couldn't, she took his words the wrong way. Her words were harsh and he didn't want to say anything, but he felt bad.
Aether went up but when she returned, she stayed away from him. What did he do that was so wrong? She was just mad that he said no wasn't she? He headed upstairs to talk to Kat, but when she spoke, he just sighed [b [#F78F18 "I told you, I'm not looking for a relationship. It's not about you personally. It's just I'm not looking for one right now and you shouldn't feel bad about that. You need to have more confidence in yourself"]] he told her and then he left, leaving her alone.
When Soren headed to the sled, he waited for Aether, [b [#F78F18 "You can stay at my cabin. I don't mind"]] he told her and then he took them back to his cabin.
Soren stepped out and then he released his wolf and brought him inside. THe ride was really quiet and it was getting a little awkward. He headed inside and listened to her speak. He did everything wrong? All he did was become a hostage? Soren narrowed his eyes at her words and accusations. [b [#F78F18 "It sounds like you really don't know me and are making accusations based on what someone said. I didn't hurt her, she hurt herself. I was a hostage and she was trying to get close to me, trying to touch me and make me do things. I just told her that there's nothing wrong with her, but she kept degrading herself. She said she had all these problems and that no guys would ever date her. I told her that she's datable. I never said I wanted to go out with her or anything. She's nice, but right now, I wouldn't date her. That's it"]] he mentioned, removing his jacket and beanie.
It seemed like she was upset with him, but he did his best to explain. If she hated him after that, he didn't know what he'd do. He enjoyed her company and he liked being around her. He didn't want to lose Aether, but if she absolutely hated being around him, what could he do?
There was something about knowing Soren believing in her that lit her up. [b [#00cca3 "Thanks." ]] She nibbled on her lip but couldn't contain her smile, [b [#00cca3 "For trusting me, believing in me." ]]
The two of them listened to the treaty being built, without going too extreme and making compromises. At least, this would keep the peace, and then solve this quest. Oh, she seriously hoped for a good reward after this. Her attention shifted off the treaty and onto the conversation Soren was having with Kat.
Kat kept her head low soon after, and knew what he said meant it would never happen. It did sound like he didn't want to, trying to avoid her. [b "I get it, but you could just tell me that you don't want to date me. ] Kat cleared her throat, and had to excuse herself.
By the time Aether came back down, she placed herself beside Yale. She did not have the right temper to be talking to him right now. How dare he? How dare he play games with the poor girl? She knew a couple of AI's that would say things, do things that they didn't mean and broke another AI's heart. Ohhh, how it boiled her blood. So, that's what Soren was like? Leading the poor girl on, kissing her, constantly saying he would date her. And...and it wasn't just that. But he planned on dating herself too? What? [i Maybe I shouldn't go on a date with him. ]
[i What if I go on a date with him, and I don't like him? Or he does something like this and, then I don't want to be around him. ] She frowned... She definitely didn't want to break loose of Soren. She didn't want to let go of the only person like her, the chance of finding what they were and not being entirely alone.
Kat heard a knock on her door. As she sat up, she assumed it must have been Aether or family, but the knock followed by Soren's voice. With Aether's pep talk, now she was just angry. "Just admit it, you don't want to be in a relationship with me now or later. Could have just said that in the first place, jerk. Go away." She hid into her room.
Aether only noticed when Soren came back from downstairs that he had gone up. Aether quickly turned her head and said goodbye to people that were leaving, expecting that they'd leave too. She couldn't just not talk to him, so she got up and made it in front of him.
[b [#00cca3 "Okay, rest tonight, go tomorrow. Am I supposed to go to my cabin this time? ]] She wondered since he kept on saying 'I', not sure if that meant he wanted to go alone. Aether put a coat over her and stepped outside. It was really cold...especially since it was the middle of the night. She turned her tablet into a wolf, and petted him, before attaching him.
The silence was long, and dragging. It was making the air colder, and the air harder to breath. She was upset, and she had a feeling Soren could tell. And then finally, one of them said something. Aether cleared her voice, and decided to keep her tone cool and collected.
[b [#00cca3 "I realize that I may not be the most...informed in modern romance," ]] She tilted her head, and cleared her voice a bit again, [b [#00cca3 "but I don't see how you did something not wrong. I was mistaken about you. I didn't think you were some sort of gigolo, or casanova, lady-killer or whatever these weird modern world calls it. You hurt her, you made her think you liked her. Then, you kept giving excuses and sounded like you wouldn't date her. Do you like her, and would you go on a date with her?" ]] She had to ask. She didn't feel like any single answer he gave would turn this around. She felt what he did was wrong from all she heard from Kat.
When he saw her smiling, he didn't want her to feel bad about herself one bit. She deserved more than that because no one should feel worthless, but at the same time, she didn't need to date someone to feel that way. He didn't mean to flirt at all, just wanted her to enjoy his company, so as they sat there eating fried chicken, Soren relaxed.
It wasn't long until he heard Aether's voice and there soon was a smile on his face. He hugged her and then he stepped out with her, forgetting about Kat for a bit because he was so worried. Luckily things were okay [b [#F78F18 "Of course I didn't. I knew you could do it"]] he smiled and then he held her hand, walking towards his seat as the meeting for the treaty took place.
Soren gave them some inputs here and there on what they should do, how no one was going to be killed. IF someone broke a law, there'd be an agreed punishment. They came up with their lists and Soren listened, seeing Aether taking notes.
He looked over at Kat and tried to tell her that it wasn't going to work because he was leaving. He didn't think she meant just then and there, but he also didn't mean to hurt her feelings either. He saw the expression on her face and when he realized that she meant now, he felt bad. [b [#F78F18 "That's not what I said. We're in the middle of a meeting Kat"]] he tried to tell her but she walked off. He sighed softly and just tried to focus, but when he felt Aether's hit on his shoulder, he just felt even worse. Apparently he didn't say the right words this time.
Soren just held his breath and then he waited for them to finish the meeting, coming up with their treaty. Each group signed the page and the meeting ended. They thanked Soren and Aether, but when he saw her sit beside Yale, he just didn't know what he did wrong. He ended up feeling bad, so he went up to the room, knocking. [b [#F78F18 "I'm really sorry Kat. I just don't want to be in a relationship right now. I didn't mean to offend you or anything"]] he told her before heading back down and then seeing Luke and Yale. They thanked him and he shook their hands, letting them know that they'd be in charge now and hopefully they'd get along.
He heard Aether come over and wondered if she was mad at him or something. [b [#F78F18 "I'm going back to the cabin. I'm a bit tired and everything is resolved. We should rest before we go somewhere else"]] he told her, heading out of the hunter's area. He watched as Yale and LUke leave and then Soren got back onto his sled. He waited for Aether and then he directed his tablet back to the cabin.
He kept silent, unsure of what to say or if he should even ask her if everything was fine because it wasn't. [b [#F78F18 "Did I do something wrong?"]] he asked her bluntly.
Kat lifted a smile, but tried to contain her own thoughts through her expression. "No, it's okay. Don't worry but thank you Soren." She took a peak at him and then away. He really was kind to her. With the slight flirting, she believed that he was starting to like her too. This was good. Kat decided to take a bit of fried chicken and got to lean her head on his shoulder. It felt really nice-and then without warning he withdrew from her, making her head bobble down for a moment. What?
Aether had a question about the scene but also didn't really find that important. She pulled on a smile and got a strong hug from him. Hugging Soren-still not a thing she was used to. Although, she felt it called for one considering they met up again and they were both okay.
[b "Yup," ] She grinned and then her eyes widened, [b "You did? You didn't doubt me? ]" And for some reason, it made her feel good. She took hold of his hand and brought him upstairs. Kat, couldn't help but just stare at the two completely ignore her and head up.
Aether collected some information, but she'd miss a few things because of that horrible feeling in the pit of her stomach that she couldn't understand. What was it? Why was it there? Did she get sick or something? Kat brought a question for Soren. Great... [i There's clearly something going on. ] He probably liked the AI. If he liked an AI, could he still like her?
Her eyes stayed on the screen, but she listened over to Soren talking to Kat. Ouch. She may not know much about the limit or modern romance, but she definitely knew that sounded like five different reasons of rejection. At the end of what Soren said, she would glance over Kat and saw the demise in her expression. Aether pouted, starting to feel bad for Kat.
"I meant...right now, you're here right now, aren't you?" Kat's voice faint, and then she bit her lip and glanced off, looking embarrassed now. "Maybe... You don't want to even next time do you?" She frowned, and lowered her head to hide her eyes heating up. Aether stopped feeling that horrible feeling in her stomach, and just felt plain out sad for the girl.
"I have to...do something." Kat quickly went upstairs, making light footsteps when she could. Still, Aether could hear a door close.
Aether frowned and then looked at Soren and hit him on the shoulder, not considerably hard though, [b "What a charmer you are." ]She got up and went up stairs and followed the sounds of muffling. She opened the door, and then locked. It took a whole to get Kat to talk but Aether managed to do it, and what Kat told her, angered her. How could he accept all those advances, tell her that he'd date her, kiss her again and again, and tell her she's his type-and crush her feelings?
"Just come down when you're ready," Aether assured, and head down stairs and had this angry look on her face. She couldn't even look at Soren. In fact, she decided to sit beside Yale and try to piece together what she missed. They eventually came with an agreement, in written form.
It was midnight now, and Aether was yawning. Everyone was beginning to leave. Her eyes would shift at Soren quickly at the end, deciding on where they would be sleeping then, or if they would be leaving this world. She may be angry, but she was not ruining the chance of being around someone like her. She pushed herself to go to him, [b "So, should we be heading to then? Where should we sleep?" ]
When Kat said not to worry, he didn't mind it too much because he knew that Aether could do it. She could fix things and he knew she'd return with them trying to work it out. [b "If he yells at you, I'll try to help out"] he told her, not wanting her to feel bad. He heard her laugh and offered her some fried chicken, seeing her looking at him and wondering why. Did she have a question? Did she want to ask him something in particular?
The sound of Aether's voice surprised him and it excited him so much because he's been waiting to hear good news for a while. He headed towards her and then he hugged his arms around her waist and then he smiled down at her. [b [#F78F18 "I'm really glad you're okay too. You got them to sign a treaty? THat's great! I knew you could do it"]] he smiled and then he nodded and followed after her upstairs.
In the living room, they were getting a meeting set up. Jace informed all of the hunters of what was going on and seeing that no one was killed, Soren was going to be okay also. Soren sat with Aether, watching the three groups come to agreements. Luke spoke for his pack, Yale for his, and Jace and his father.
The meeting took a while, but they were coming up with a good list of ideas. Soren listened to Kat and when she asked to finish the movie, he looked over at Aether and then he shook his head. [b [#F78F18 "There's a few things I have to do Kat. I can't stay here for a while longer, I've already stayed long enough. There's somewhere I need to go, so I just need to resolve this. Maybe the next time I come visit"]] he told her, trying not to sound mean, but it was the truth. He couldn't keep giving her hope any longer.
Kat shook her head, [b "Don't worry. The worst thing that can happen is getting yelled it and I get yelled at pretty often." ] She released a laugh. Her eyes fell onto the fried chicken on how he was looking at it, treating him. If only he looked at her like he looked at fried chicken. He didn't? Kat smiled and leaned her head into his should. This really was like a date. Her eyes were on the screen but she mostly focused on snuggling into him.
She felt a whole weight of her shoulder. Thankfully, this was going to be all over soon. She didn't want to see werewolves for a long time now. [b [#00cca3 "I'm not going to turn my back." ]] Aether nodded. They got into the car, and she felt the anxiety of Soren being okay. The rest of the hunters were coming over. Nobody got hurt, thankfully.
The second she got out of the car, she was not going to tolerate any bull shit. They stepped in and she instantly went downstairs, while the others waited for the rest of the hunters to show up to make an agreement. Aether climbed down the stairs, and she saw Soren with a bucket of fried chicken, and a girl leaning into a shoulder while they were watching a movie.
Soren moved the second he heard her, so Kat's head bobbled to the side, glancing up at the stairs. Aether met Soren's eyes, and he was grinning. She smiled and was surprised when he hugged her like this. [b [#00cca3 "I'm so glad you're okay. We should head up, and listen to their treating. We didn't have to kill Yale either, um-the other Alpha." ]] She smiled proudly. She took his hand and brought him upstairs.
The hunters came in and the room was pretty tense, but they started having a discussion over the treaty. Aether brought out paper and decided to note this down. But he she began to wander. Soren looked pretty good with that AI. She sighed to herself, sitting down on a chair but staying close to Soren.
Kat had came up and made it beside Soren and heard the conversation for the treaty. [b "I'm so glad that they'll finally make peace." ] Then she pat his arm, [b "Soren, since you're not a hostage anymore, do you want to hang out a bit more while they make the treaty? Finish the movie with me? Maybe know each other more." ] Then her eyes traveled to Aether, [b "You wouldn't mind if I borrow him do you?" ]
When she asked, something mad Aether suddenly feel not so well. [b [#00cca3 "No, I don't. It's up to him. Not me." ]] Her eyes flickered off to Soren for a second and then off.
WHen Kat spoke of one day, he just nodded his head and smiled a little. Of course he didn't know when he would come back, but he didn't want her waiting for him in case he never came back. HE wasn't interested in dating an Ai....he really wanted to get to know Aether more in all truth.
He sat down and watched the movie, eating the fried chicken and then licking his lips. HE was a sucker for fried chicken ever since he went to wonderland with Aether. He shook his head [b [#F78F18 "I didn't do anything wrong either, but I don't want you getting in trouble because of me"]] he told her, seeing her lean in. [b [#F78F18 "Sure, I don't mind"]] he let her lean into his shoulder and then he just watched, waiting....hoping that Aether came back with good news.
Yale only agreed because Aether did bring up a good point. He wanted to make sure that his pack was safe though and that no one was going to bother him about it. "Good, then you guys better not turn your backs. Fine let's go" he was untied and then him and LUke put on the robes. When everything was set, Yale led them to his car, driving them towards where Jace's hideout was.
They reached there in minutes, stepping outside into the snow and then he saw the guns. He was hesitant, but LUke patted his shoulder. The two of them would be fine with Aether and Soren there.
WHen they stepped inside, Soren was sitting beside Kat still when he heard the door. WHen she said she made it. Soren jumped up and then he grinned [b [#F78F18 "Aether! I'm so glad you're back!"]] he told her, rushing to the stairs and hugging her. He sure missed her.
Kat shrugged, [b "Maybe one day. Maybe even you," ] She offered a light smile. The fight ending was important to her. Although, there was nothing she could do personally either but, hope to convince others. [b "No it isn't. Everyone's tired of losing family and friends." ] She frowned, and leaned back, her eyes on the TV. At least he looked like he was enjoying the fried chicken.
She fixed up her cardigan a bit and leaned forward, [b "Why not? I don't think you did anything wrong. Like I said, I don't care what my father finds out, or he's upset. I don't think you deserve to be treated as a hostage." ] She sighed, [b "We're not evil people Soren... You look like you're enjoying yourself here though. That makes me happy. Can I lean on you?" She peaked over at him, hoping it was okay. If he said it was fine, she should lean onto him, rest her head on his shoulder.
Aether felt in such relief when he finally agreed to go with the treaty. [b [#00cca3 "No one is going to be back stabbed. And if they do, then I'll be on your side." ]] She nodded, definitely going to hold herself to that promise. She had Luke untied and knew that they faced with a problem of them not having any clothes. [b [#00cca3 "You'll both have to wear bath robes if we're going to get out of here." ]] She went into the bathroom, and let Jace untie Yale. She threw the bath towels to them. Aether decided to change her own attire into something more comfortable and warm. A pair of black leggings, and a black jacket with a hood, with a pair of boots. She nodded, and then they went downstairs.
[b [#00cca3 "Yale, you'll have to drive us. Jace will give directions." ]] Jace first told the Hunters that they were on their way back, with yale agreeing for a treaty. A lot of them sounded frustrated but this was the right way to go.
When they got there, Aether was the first to step out of the car. Kat's dad was by the door outside, with a gun.
[b [#00cca3 "Guns away please. This is a treaty, means guns down." ]] Aether instructed. Kat's dad scoffed, but set down the gun. They walked in, and Aether felt more concerned to check up on Soren than anything. So, first things first, she ran down the basement to check up on him, [b [#00cca3 "Soren! I made it." ]] She called, and saw him on the sofa, with a bucket of fried chicken on the table and another girl. Well...he looked comfy.
He could tell that she wanted more of something that he couldn't give. He couldn't be her boyfriend and he couldn't date her. HE didn't want to be messing around with an AI right now. Especially if he was being a hostage here. Sure they were just AI's, but that didn't sit well with Soren at all.
[b [#F78F18 "I'm sure someone will like you enough. You seem really nice"]] he told her, looking at her green eyes and seeing the vulnerable side of her. [b [#F78F18 "I hope so too. All this fighting isn't worth it at all"]] he told her.
When he ate more chicken, Soren felt content. The chicken was good and so was the movie. He was enjoying it here, but he knew he couldn't be too happy when Aether was working hard out there. HE really wished he could be there instead.
[b [#F78F18 "I'm fine Kat. I shouldn't even be treated this nicely. YOu're doing too much. I'm sure if your father found out, he'd be upset"]]
When Yale told her that he didn't agree, he was back into human form. HIm and LUke were both butt naked and they were both trying to their best to kill each other. He didn't want to make peace when so much of their pack has been killed.
He listened to Aether talking about if he cared about his pack and he would just glance away, feeling irritated. Sure they'd risk a lot trying to fight off everyone, so maybe she had a point.
"Fine! I'll come along to listen and make a treaty, but you guys better have a good reason. I don't want any of my pack to be back stabbed!" he told them, glancing off and then he waited for them to untie him. "Let's just get this over with, I don't want to be in the same room as hunter for this long"
Kat pressed her lips hard together and nodded. [b "I don't believe someone likes me, but alright. I hope you come back soon enough," ] She lightly smiled and thought about the whole animal situation. [b "I hope. I really hate this sort of violence. I lost family like that... I was mad first, really mad but we provoke them too. I just want it to stop." ] She met his eyes and really wondered if he was that into her. She turned her head again and watched the movie, letting Soren eat the fried chicken.
[b "Soren, would like anything else to eat?" ] She asked, her eyes falling on his lips again. She sighed, knowing she would probably have to wait until he came back to go on a date. But why couldn't they have it now? Maybe because he was hostage here...
Aether stood in the room and hoped her little lecture made some difference. Aether plopped her ass on the bed and hoped this wouldn't take too long. With all they were saying, she couldn't see how Yale wouldn't agree that this needed to end. He changed back into human but she wasn't going to untie Yale unless he agreed. Now, he was being really frustrating.
[b [#00cca3 "So what are you saying Yale? That you'd rather have the war between them keep going? So you'd lose everyone? If you were really a leader, an alpha, and cared about the people in your pack, you would do anything to protect them. Even if that meant pushing your pride and revenge aside to make a treaty to keep them safe." ]] Aether narrowed her eyes, and crossed her arms, [b [#00cca3 "Come along to discuss turns, make a deal or you'll have more people on the hunt for you and your pack. We would even get Luke to kill you, so he'd become alpha and join your pack with his. Which one is better for your pack? If you truly aren't selfish and care for them." ]] She got up on her feet and went to untie Luke, seeing them both damn naked. Oh god... She did her best not to look down. She untied Luke, and waited for Yale's response.
If not...then maybe she could stay a bit longer and find a cure to lycans or a less violent way of making sure Yale wasn't alpha anymore.
