    Mithar Keep - Pantry

    Kashi, bored and starved after finishing off the rest of his cream, has taken to raiding the Keep's pantry. Anything heavier than bread and more edible than dry pasta will begin to disappear down his throat as he rips open bags and chews through steel cans to get at the contents.

    Despite the chaos, none of the food he opens is wasted, and he piles all the refuse by the door to dispose of later.

    "Snyyuuuuu~..." He grumbles around his latest mouthful of food wordlessly. And would you look at that! His latest increases in size have made him eligible for a deeper and easier to read voice!

    Mithar Keep - Pantry

    Kirin walks over to the pantry, hoping to make herself a quick (yet heavy) snack and then return to work. She has somehow gotten a navy blue and baby blue maid outfit... not sure where that came from.

    Imagine her surprise to find Kashi in the pantry! Eating all the food!

    Also, a bit of panic. She wasn't told about this. She thinks that Kashi is just some wildlife that wandered in!

    "GAH! What the- shoo! Shoo!"

    Mithar Keep

    Kashi freezes in between bites, a bit of corned beef dangling from his jaws.

    Slowly he turns to the door, the meat swaying a bit. There's a quick snap of his neck and snout and the hunk of meet disappears.

    And hey, now that he has had his fill, the alchemical forge that is his digestive track begins working in overdrive, forcing coins and jewels from under his scales and scattering them all over the floor.

    "Snyyuii? <What are you? I'm a dragon! I think...?>"

    He isn't quite sure how to react. Is this something to play with?

    Well, clearly he thinks otherwise. Silly Cessie, you can't even tell what's a dragon anymore.

    The mage turns to the dragon and starts to try to dwell into the enchantments holding him up closer, trying to figure out how he works. "And what shall we do with you?" She asks herself as Harnel leaves.

    "If you want to find the hospital, all you have to do is follow the storm that is brewing in the space above to its epicenter."

    "You could also simply trail one of the interlopers there. The report said that we are being invaded. They'd try to kill Master first, so in all likelihood, nine out of ten of them are headed to the hospital."


    The bartender shrugs. She's pretty sure that even the injured Master will prove more than a match for the enemy. She fishes a glass up from under the counter and begins to polish it with a pink rag.

    Mithar Keep - Kashi's Room

    Kashi looks back at her just as curiously, wondering why Harnel had to go so soon.

    Oh well, maybe Cessie could play with him instead?

    Focusing, he manages to force out a ruby the size of a fist between the scales on his shoulder blades. Acting quickly, he grabs it in his teeth and scurries over to Cessie, holding it out to her.

    The look in his eyes is bright and hopeful, and his entire back end is wagging along with his tail. Will Cessie play fetch?

    Mithar Keep - Pantry

    Kashi (in a later timeline) peers at the catgirl some more. He's never seen one of these before.

    Well, tried and true methods might work here. A peace offering will have to be made. His head ducks down and he grabs a sizeable piece of beef from the can he was working at.

    He moves closer to Kirin slowly, trying not to startle her. The meat is held from the tip of one tooth out to her hand.

    "It looks beautiful. You and Carl did a wonderful job decorating," Charity says. "You look beautiful."

    Sunny steps back a bit to look at her sister, trying to identify what was different. Finally she said, "You look older."

    Charity knows what she's seeing - the effect of working as a medic, being around the sick and dying - but she isn't going to bring that up now, on a night of festivities. So she laughs it off. "Still older than you," she says. "What's for dinner?"

    Hallowmere Lake

    Carl gives the man who might as well be his brother-in-law a hug before doing the same with Charity. "Thank you both for coming." He says with complete honesty and cheer before gesturing for them to take a seat at the table. "And its just pot roast. I hope that's fine." He asks. Of course, what might be just a meal for him might be more than a little extravagant compared to the normal version of the same thing.

    He is a halfling after all.

    Charity might notice that Carl has gained some weight from his inactivity these past few months. That, and eating better than usual, but that's not inactivity to him. "Need anything to drink?"

    Charity sits down at the table with Edijar, and watches Sunny as she helps Carl with the drinks and getting dinner on the table. There's something odd about her sister, and finally she leans over and whispers to Edijar, "She's acting like Archer - practically quivering with happiness. We shouldn't have been away so long."

    In the kitchen, Sunny gives Carl a kiss. "Tell them."

    Edijar gives Charity a slight smile and whispers back. "Probably because we're here. And it was their honeymoon. It wouldn't have been right for us to visit unless asked." He says, giving her hand a gentle squeeze.

    He looks like he's about to say more, but Carl gives a small cough. "Umm...Charity, Edijar...it's a pleasure that you came to visit, but we called you here for a reason other than just dinner. You see, we're..." He looks at Sunny uneasily for a moment before finding his smile once more and turning back to the others. "We're pregnant."

    Charity is stunned for a moment, the news taking her completely by surprise. "Sunny, you need to see a doctor," she says in a subdued voice. She knew she was being irrational. She knew that ectopic pregnancy wasn't a genetic thing. There was no reason Sunny was at greater risk just because it had happened to Charity.

    "I did! Bugs came right away. He comes every week." Sunny says, and puts her arms around Carl, unsure what else to say. She had known pregnancy was a sensitive subject for her sister, but didn't know why.

    Charity lets out a breath. "Then everything's okay? Bugs says it is?"

    Sunny only nods, and Charity is suddenly out of her chair and across the room and hugging her sister tightly, even to the point of pulling her away from Carl. Sunny hugs her back, still not sure if this is good or bad, especially when she realizes, "You're crying."

    "I love you, sis. Love you so much," Charity says.

    Talnissa grins happily, holding Kara close, and heating her body to the usual level.

    "I'm glad."

    The bartender shrugs. She's pretty sure that even the injured Master will prove more than a match for the enemy. She fishes a glass up from under the counter and begins to polish it with a pink rag.

    Well, tried and true methods might work here. A peace offering will have to be made. His head ducks down and he grabs a sizeable piece of beef from the can he was working at.

    He moves closer to Kirin slowly, trying not to startle her. The meat is held from the tip of one tooth out to her hand.
    Kirin looks at the dragon. She raises one eyebrow. She sighs.

    "Unless you are... some kind of pet to Harnel or Cessie, I'm going to have to remove you from the premises."

    What?

    "Either leave, or I will get a broom."

    ...yes. Because a broom is logically the best thing to use against this thing.

    "I did! Bugs came right away. He comes every week." Sunny says, and puts her arms around Carl, unsure what else to say. She had known pregnancy was a sensitive subject for her sister, but didn't know why.

    Charity lets out a breath. "Then everything's okay? Bugs says it is?"

    Sunny only nods, and Charity is suddenly out of her chair and across the room and hugging her sister tightly, even to the point of pulling her away from Carl. Sunny hugs her back, still not sure if this is good or bad, especially when she realizes, "You're crying."

    "I love you, sis. Love you so much," Charity says.

    "Yeah, Bugs said he was surprised, but there shouldn't be any complica-"
    Carl starts, but suddenly hovers back when Charity embraces Sunny. He's a touch shocked at first, but after a moment he just smiles gently, proud. He looks up when Edijar sets a hand on the halfling's shoulder and sees Edijar smiling gently as well. "You two have done great, Carl. You'll make a pair of great parents."

    It's a while before Charity stops crying - long enough that dinner will need to be reheated. She doesn't intend to tell Sunny about her own lost pregnancy, well aware that the time for that story to be shared is after Sunny's baby is safely born. "I was just so scared, thinking of you here, so far from the city," she fibs as an explanation for her poor reaction before. "I just froze up and forgot about teleporting."

    Sunny accepts the lie, with only a small part of her recognizing that there's more to it than that and shying away from wanting to know more.

    "We didn't know if we could, because of being different," Sunny starts to explain. "Bugs said we might not. The first weeks. They would be..." she starts to run out of words, and Carl fills in the story. That human-halfling couples have low fertility, so they had purposefully decided that they wouldn't use contraception, even though they wouldn't have ordinarily chosen to have a child so soon. That they hadn't wanted to tell anyone until the first trimester was past - the riskiest part of the pregnancy.

    Charity's heart breaks at the thought of what might have been, if the pregnancy had miscarried, and she had never been told. (Just like I never told her.) And at the same time, a selfish part of her is glad that she was spared those weeks of suspense and fear. "Oh Sunny, I would have been here for you."

    "I know."

    Harnel nods, "Yeah, I'll be delivering them all today."

    And this is probably where this scene should end, right after we set up where it happened in the timeline.

    A moment.

    "So, where do we start?"
    [Mithar Keep - Courtyard]

    "A test first, to see how good you are at fighting right now, and where your strengths lay. We can work from there. Come with me."

    If Kate follows the half-dragon lord, they'll go past the smithy he was working in before. The area has had a few dummies set up, mostly for Harnel's personal use, but with Kate here things could start getting interesting.

    Harnel walks into a clear area and takes off his coat, placing it on the ground. "Now, what we're going to do is simple. You attack me, and I only make countermoves, but nothing harmful. I want you to attack as if you're trying to kill me; don't worry, I can take it." He lowers his stance, getting into a battle ready position, expecting Kate to come after him when she's ready.
