Logan nodded in slight understanding. He scrubbed Remus’s shoulders and arms gently as the soap cleaned his skin. [+blue “So we basically have to make sure that Remus doesn’t argue with anyone for the rest of the day?”] Logan thought that the conditioner had been in for long enough as he washed Remus’s hair off for the second time. He put his hands over Remus’s eyes this time and smiled as the water parted for his hand.
Penny sat on the bed next to Patton and gently tapped Patton’s chest above his heart. [+teal “Awaken fair Patton from Roman’s kiss!”]
Patton mumbled and opened his eyes. He had been awake for a while with his eyes closed and was just listening to how cute Penny and Roman where. But he wasn’t going to break their whole act. [+turquoise “It’s my kiddos! They have saved me!”] Patron flinched as he moved his leg to sit up. [+turquoise “And what is that I smell? Can it be breakfast for the royal king?”]
Vivian took the apple and ate a large bite out of it. [+violet “Thanks. And your hair looks nice with the braids. Plus your ear studs look really... cute. Or slick. A mix of both really.”] Vivian tapped her foot on the ground and thought for a moment. [+violet “Virgil is a good person but.. I don’t want to think of him as a cheater...”]
Janus was focused on his own task while trying to balance the illusion. "That depends on Virgil and Roman," Janus began taking note of how out of it Remus was at the thought of unmarred skin killed him. "He tends to throw himself into work more when those two get defensive with him. OR demand things of him." Janus explained. "As far as I can recall that has always been the case with Roman. Virgil happens around the time he left."
Roman smiled at her "Of course let all the cats have a warm sunny spot to lay in and a cat tree to explore!" He decreed laughing at how they had yet to wake Patton as he placed the crown on top of Patton's head. Roman was in the princely pose on one knee with a hand over his heart. "Wake my king and join in our festivities!" Roman said as he leaned down and kissed Patton's head.
Jacyn sighed at her "I don't know I mean really Janus said that he and Patton were together but he did not confirm or deny any relationship with the others." She said as she summoned another apple for Vivian handing it to her as she sat on the ground. She began to fiddle with the end of her braid she looked closer at the ribbon and noticed the small snakes on it.
Logan grabbed another bar of soap knowing that Remus needed as much soap as he could get. He quickly rinsed off the trash rat’s greasy head was shocked to see that his hair was starting to look curly and soft. Once, he was done with the shampoo, Logan put conditioner in and scrubbed it in before letting it sit while moving on to scrub Remus’s back and chest. [+blue “Wow. We might actually end up with a clean Remus for once. How long do you think he will stay this clean?”]
Penny twirled in the cape to show it off to Roman. [+teal “I am the princess! And I decree that all the cats are our now!”] She giggled and gently put the crown in her head. [+teal “Oh wait! Patton needs a crown!”] Penny ran over to the toy chest again and came back with a third crown. [+teal “Come on! Let’s wake Patton up and then I give him his breakfast!”]
Vivian climbed down from the bar and grabbed her water bottle from a pile of empty ones as she took a drink. [+violet “I thought that Roman was with Virgil and Patton was with Janus? And you said that Janus was with Virgil a moment ago? So is Janus cheating on Patton with Virgil and Roman is cheating on Virgil with Patton?”] Vivian day down on one of the benches on the side on the room while she was trying to figure this out. [+violet “So are Logan and Remus just the odd ones out or are they cheating with them too?”]
Janus smiled "I have a slightly better plan." He said taking Remus hand out of the water he rarely did it so he had to concentrate on the lie. The lie that the battles never happen that Remus never got hurt and projected it on to Remus himself. "It will not last long Remus so behave." Janus scolded as he watched Remus take off the soaked fabric of his shirt and toss them the scars weren't there. Janus nodded to Logan that they had to work fast as he grabbed the brush and worked on his nails as Remus seemed so focus on making sure all of the scars were gone.
Roman smiled as he took one of the crowns and placed it on his own head meanwhile he took the cape and wrapped it around Penny's shoulders. He was having so much fun with someone who wanted to play dress-up with him other than Remus. He would normally spoil the fun of the game.
Jacyn took a deep breath and nodded "Yeah she and Roman are playing dress-up. I needed to get out of Patton's room for a bit. And when I did I saw Janus and Virgil rather close. You don't think they are cheating on Roman and Patton do you?"
Virgil shrugged and walked away down the hall to the broom closet he had found a week ago. The only person who probably used it was Roman when he would pretend to play Cinderella around the Mind Palace or Patton when he felt that physical cleaning would be more fun then just snapping. Virgil opened the door to a crapped little closet as he made himself at home on the floor and closed the door behind him. [+purple “This is more like it. I don’t know how I didn’t find this spot sooner.”]
Logan sighed. [+blue “Fine... But can you at least sit still then so I can watch all the shampoo out of your hair? Janus? Would you mind grabbing the bar of soap and scrubbing out his fingernails?”] Logan stood up and grabbed the shower head again and he extended it.
Penny giggled and held onto Roman. [+teal “Yes! We need our brave prince to kiss the king awake!”] Penny quickly ran over to Patton’s toy chest in the corner and looked for things they could us. She ran back with two crowns, a cape, and a scepter. [+teal “Here RoRoz. You can pick which one you want.”] Penny offered them to him with a cute smile.
Vivian saw Jacyn walk in and she stopped doing her sit-ups as she hung upside down on the bar with her hair dangling down. [+violet “Hey. What’s up? Is Penny awake yet?”] The room was upside down and Jacyn looked like she was standing on the ceiling.
Janus sighed "Don't hide in the closet Roman won't stop with the closet jokes." He said as he held him through the kiss. "Besides you know my main concern is making sure Remus in comfortable," Janus says as they walked and separating when he got to Logan's room. Janus knocked before entering and could already tell he had spent a little too much time worrying about Virgil.
"I'm not J but even I know that is a lie, Sir William Edmond Logan!" Remus said as he laughs at his own joke, "Did you know that that guy was the first director of the Geological Survey of Canada! It fits because you know you mentioned mud and mud and rocks go together. You should see some of the rocks in the Imagination!" Remus began to ramble as if Logan had triggered something that was when Janus came in and knelt down.
"Remus, come back to us," Janus said rubbing the cheek of the panicking duke behind his back he was using one of his other arms to tap Logan in morse code about what broke Remus. The scars, while they were all used to Roman having them from his adventures Remus was very private about his injuries and since some of the scars were a result of Roman, Janus could guess Remus did not want Logan upset.
Roman smirked "Of course my darling princess! Shall we wake the sleeping King with a kiss!" He asked her spinning her like a Princess.
Jacyn blushed at what she had seen but calmed herself as she entered Vivian's room from her own she sighed as she walked over to Vivian with a smile happy Vivian was getting a better place to train. "Hey."
Logan blushed and sprayed more water in Remus’s face. [+blue “I-I’m an incapable of being c-cute.”] Logan leaned down and started to put more shampoo in Remus’s hair. He put some of the bubbles on his finger and ran his finger over Remus’s mustache. [+blue “There. Now I need you to take your shirt off so we can get all the dirt and mud and whatever else off. And please, just your shirt.”]
Virgil took deep breaths and shook his head. [+purple “I would rather not have to see his naked body again and get unwanted soap all over my body. Plus, there is a dark broom closet that is calling my name.”] Virgil gave Janus a long kiss to be envied by others and started to walk away from him. [+purple “Don’t come running to me when your green son covers you in so many bubbles that you can’t even stand up straight, Lies-A-Lot.”]
Penny giggled and finished her breakfast. [+teal “Bye Jaccy!! Can we go wake Patton up, Roman? Please? We can make him eat breakfast and pretend that it is a royal palace and he is the king!”]
Vivian was upside down on one of the bars and she was doing sits up with her feet clinging to the bar. [+violet “69... 70... 71... 72...”] Her music was playing loudly and could be heard through the bedroom door. She was in her own little fitness world and was content.
Remus laughed at Logan's face as when he had licked him he was happy that he could cause Logan to shiver like that and kept on laughing until he choked on the water being sprayed on his face. After getting all the water out of his lungs Remus decided to drown was not how he wanted to go. Shaking off all the water and shampoo he smiled at Logan "But that shiver you gave was so cute." Remus said even though his eyes burned from the shampoo.
Janus put his hands on Virgil's shoulders to ground him "Virgil breathe for me in for four seconds hold for seven out for eight." He told him. "You are right she has only been in her room once which is once more than Penny and multiple times less than Jacyn who's powers are coming in quickly." He pointed out. "The only ghost in the mindscape is you Phantom of the Opera." He said smoothing Virgil hair back "Now do you want to come and give me a hand with Remus? Logan's trying to give him a bath alone and it has been too quiet."
Jacyn smiled at her "I will try you know Vivian and her work out routine." She said as she walked out she paused and watched Janus and Virgil and how oddly close they were too close if you asked her but they didn't. So she made her way to Vivian's room to check on her friend.
Logan was enjoying the moment and enjoying the fact that maybe he could actually get Remus clean for once. He didn’t really question it when Remus leaned forward. Maybe he was just tired and wanted to lean his head on his shoulder. Or maybe he, for once, wanted to be clean and was making it easier for Logan by leaned closer. But he wasn’t prepared for the spine shaking quiver that vibrated through his back as he felt Remus’s tongue slide up his neck. Logan quickly pulled away and grabbed a towel to wipe his neck off. [+blue “Remus!! That was certainly uncalled for!”] Logan grabbed the shower head and extended it down as he spayed a ton of water straight into Remus’s face.
Virgil looked at Janus with a confused look on his face. [+purple “What do you mean? She hadn’t even made it to her room yet at that point. And the only time she has been in her room is when she went in for the first time.”] Virgil’s anxiety was slowly rising as his voice was slowly getting louder. [+purple “I don’t want anything bad to happen to her but she seemed to be a little freaked out when I told her! And we don’t even know for sure if that is her power! What if there really are ghosts here!?”] Virgil was trying to breathe as he stopped walking.
Penny nodded at Jacyn. [+teal “I will be fine. I want to play with Roman and maybe when Patton wakes up we can all Prince and Princess or something!”] She clapped happily and tried to sit as still as she could so she would mess Roman up. [+teal “Just please hurry back Jaccy. Okay?”]
Remus had to admit he liked the feeling of Logan's fingers in his hair it felt nice. And Remus like to play with nice things! So Remus did what he usually did in situations like these he decided to make it awkward. He moved in closer to Logan's neck as Logan start to scrub at the back of his hair and took his tongue and ran it up the underside of Logan's neck before pecking him on the lips.
Janus rolled his eyes at Virgil "We both know that lying doesn't work with me and you could do both those things with your headphones on in Patton's room." He pointed out as he looked at Virgil "From Roman mutterings in the kitchen I am guessing Vivian has a new gift?" He asked and when Virgil confirmed it Janus began to wonder. "I am starting to think their gifts depend on how much time they spend in their rooms.
Jacyn nibbled on her own plate nervously without Janus or Vivian there she grew quiet like she was observing for threats. Roman almost wanted to point out how snake-like that was but decided against it. Finally, Jacyn bit her lip, "PenPen you going to be okay if I go grab Vivian for breakfast?" she asked her.
Logan leaned into the kiss as he poured the tick and flea shampoo over Remus’s head. He started to rub it in as if he were running his fingers through Remus’s hair. Why did his hair have to be so greasy that it didn’t even need water?! That was a huge problem that he was going to lecture Remus on about Personal Hygiene later.
Virgil was almost in the clear when he saw Janus following him. [+purple “Nothing is wrong Snakey Boy. I just want to sit by myself and read a book and draw pictures. Why do you ask my dear scaly one?”] Virgil chuckled to himself. He knew lying was fruitless when talking with the master of lies but he did it anyways.
Penny sat next to Jacyn with her plate of Waffles and eggs. [+teal “Jaccy! These are so good! Thank you Roman!!”] Penny smiled and continued to eat the food. She was eating rather quickly so that she would have a lot of time to play with the plushies in the corner.
Remus stops bouncing "Oh uh they aren't finished yet." He said to him with a smile it was also part of the reason they kept falling off. While Remus made clothes for everyone else by the time he came to his he had often run out of ideas. So he just altered the size of his old ones boring black and green ones from time to time. Remus smiled as he tried to distract Logan with another kiss maybe if he begged for more kiss or better yet make Logan blush he would forget.
Roman smiled "Of course!" He said as he looked at Virgil leaving a little upset the storm cloud was walking away from them. As he sat down and worked on Penny's hair while she ate breakfast.
Janus shook his head as he felt a pull towards Logan's room "I'll be right back Logan is requesting me Virgil care to walk with me?" He asked as he followed Virgil out of the room. Janus knew the look on Virgil's face he was overthinking "Want to tell me what is going on?" He asked.
Logan pealed Remus off from him and gently placed him back into the bath. [+blue “Remus, Honey, kiss addictions fall into the category of an addiction to romantic interacting touches. And while I may like to be cuddled and kissed and the like, I am not addicted to it. But anyways, you need to take an ACTUAL bath for once. And I wasn’t kidding about getting Janus.”] Logan had an idea that could get Remus to stay. [+blue “How about you show me the swim trunks you designed yourself for the vacation? Then you can take a bath in those. How does that sound, Honey?”]
Penny looked at Roman. She got up and went over to whisper in his ear. [+teal “Can you braid my hair while I play with the stuffed animals after eating?”] She bounced on the end of her toes and smiled at Roman with the same cute smile she had seen Patton doing before.
Virgil quickly tried to escape the room. He wanted no part in hair renovations. Maybe he could go find a quiet closest somewhere to hide in. No one would be able to find him and he could listen to loud music and think about all the embarrassing things Thomas had done when he was younger.
"Kiss addiction!" He said to him as he jumps up to hug Logan from behind with a smile on his face as he looked at Logan the door was free of any blockage and just as Remus felt for the doorknob it vanish and his hand hit something cold. "Access denied." A computerized voice sounded as Remus looked down at the hand pad that had replaced the doorknob. He looked at Logan with a pout "But bath's are soooo time-consuming we could be doing other things!" Remus said trying to grasp at straws.
Roman paused to kiss Virgil "You are doing fine Jitters, McGee." He encouraged as they walked in the room he put the food down on the bed quickly before taking the remaining tray from Virgil. "Breakfast in bed for our late slumbers!" He said to them sending a note to Vivian that when she was done they had food.
Jacyn looked really torn between agreeing to Penny demands and wanting her friend to eat thankfully Janus spoke for her. "Penny eat first then I'm sure Patton will let you play with them or better yet Roman can you do braids for Penny," Janus asked as he finished Jacyn french braid with a yellow ribbon in her hair.
"But of course! If you girls want any fabulous hairstyles come to your turely and I will make it a magical experience."
Logan shook his head and held his ground. [+blue “Addictions as not good for a person. My coffee addiction isn’t good for me. So I don’t know what possible addiction you could even come up with that would be good because there are none.”] Logan picked Remus up and set him in the tub. [+blue “Stay! Or else I will have to get Janus to help me.”] Logan went to the cabinet and pulled out some tick and flea shampoo.
Virgil put the two mugs hot chocolate on their own tray and carried both the girls trays and the mug tray to Patton’s room. The weight of the trays was giving him anxiety as he slowly walked. [+purple “I am probably going to drop these... I am going to drop them... Everyone’s meals are going to be ruined...”] He tried to take deep breaths as he walked.
Penny looked excitedly at Janus! [+teal “Yes please! Can we also braid Patron’s hair while he is sleeping? Pleeeease!!”] Penny sat up and moved over to sit next to Janus on the ground while holding the cat plush in her lap. [+teal “And... And we can find glittery markers and draw smiley faces and hearts all over his face! And we can—“] Penny was cut off as she got distracted by a huge pile of plushies in the corner of Patton’s room. [+teal “Can I please go play over there!? Please Jaccy!!”] Penny looked at Jacyn with the saddest and cutest eyes she could muster.
