Andrew lifted his glass and sniffed it. It wasn't calves blood, nor an adult cows. He said nothing about it though, he wasn't sure exactly what this was but he knew he hadn't had it before. He brought the chalice to his lips and, rather then drinking it directly, he let his fangs elongate and dip just slightly into the cup. He was hidden behind it so he couldn't really be seen and it wasn't sure just what he was doing. However, after a taste and he was sure it wasn't poison or disgusting, he drank some of it slowly. When he lowered the chalice his fangs were already retracted and there wasn't an ounce of proof of what he'd just done. He smiled a little and pulled over a whole peach.He bit into it and enjoyed the whole thing this time, fuzzy peel and all. Cerberus behaved wonderfully at his feet, drinking from the bowl now and then, but otherwise he just lay there watching the door like a good guard dog in training. He gave Dreama a plate with some eggs, bacon, and of course a kiwi.

Praxis helped feed the children and held pleasant conversation throughout the meal. Once everyone was done she cleared the dishes and brought them to the kitchen. She didn't return until all the dishes were washed and put away. While she was gone the children took to playing with Cerberus and running around the dinning room.

Lyric kept a close eye on the children and smiled as they giggled and ran about playfully. Eventually he and Andrew ended up having a very cold and clear cut conversation with as little words as possible. Once Praxis returned, however, he stood and smiled. "Alright, shall we go see what I promised?"

Andrew wasn't mean to the man, but he was respectfully short bout his answers. he asked no questions and he didn't start the conversation. His words were all responses to lyric addressing him. While the children flew about and played with Cerberus, Andrew kept an eye on them. He let his panoramic vision, thanks to Hrukjan's silver blood, keep them in his view. Finally, after he'd finished his chalice of deep thick blood, he gave the man a calm gaze. He glanced in the direction of the kitchen and waited until the children were far enough away before he asked the question that had been burning him since he took his first whiff of that blood. "What was that from?" he asked, shifting his eyes to the cup and back to the man.

Lyric gave Andrew a slight grin and a nonchalant shrug. "It's just a tap from a blood hound found sleeping in the back this morning. You'd be surprised what lives around here... either way, it was willing to give up one of it's blood pouches for a bit of food. Figured it's better to give you it then to save it for another time. Blood Hound patches are normally used for cooking." He noticed the door click open and smiled as he looked over, seeing Praxis come forward. "Well, it seems well enough today besides a small drizzle, are you willing to follow me into the forest?"

Praxis came over and smiled at Andrew before turning toward her father and nodding gravely. "I suppose...I'll go find my old rain cloaks and see if they'll fit the children." She quickly walked back toward her chambers, petting the dog and giving each child a hug before she disappeared.

Andrew stood. "wasn't bad," he said with an open mind and to himself more so than Lyric. He stood and took each child by a hand as they jumped around and Dreama twirled like a ballerina. "Brava, brava!" Andrew said with a smile, watching his young daughter. He already loved her like he himself had created her, though truthfully he was glad he hadn't. That would have made him entirely too young a father and he probably wouldn't be the man he was now. None the less he smiled and played with the children for a while before he lifted the yipping Cerberus up off the ground and cradled him on his back like a baby. The pup calmed and liked the breast of Andrew's shirt. His tail wagged quickly, thumping against Andrew's chest in a wonderful rhythm while the children pet him and scratched his belly and Dreama talked to him in cute baby voices while Cyprus giggled.

Praxis came back to see everyone surrounding Andrew and the pup. Chuckling, she let out a low whistle which made the dog's ears stand up and then had him trying to scramble away from Andrew's grasp and right over toward Praxis. When he finally did get free he attacked her again and started jumping on her, wanting her attention now. As planned, however, the children followed and she held out two cloaks for them. "Come on now, we'll have to make sure your wings don't get too wet either." She put the specially made cloak over Dreama, it was a dark pink and one that Praxis would never have admitted to wearing since she admittedly hating pink--though it didn't make too much sense. She put a dark blue cloak over Cyprus and smiled as she tied it under his wings as he had for Dreama. "There you go, you should be nice and warm now."

Lyric smiled as he watched them. They were an interesting family. He eventually but in and said that it was best to leave before the rain started. He left to get a cloak, a deep green one, and returned to see Praxis in a black cloak that matched the decor of her dress wonderfully. After everyone was ready they left through the portal in Praxis' chambers and started into the forest.

Andrew had been wearing his long sleek black trench coat, a chick cloak that hide him in the shadows well. He pulled the hood up and scooped up Cerberus again. "wet dog smells awful," he said to the puppy, slipping him under the cloak and holding him there. The dog didn't fight him and only whined for a few seconds before he accepted this was for his own good. Andrew let Praxis and the children follow immediately behind Lyric and he took up the rear. He kept one hand on his dagger unless one of them turned around, in which he would let his hand hand freely.

Praxis kept up with them well and held each of the children by the hand. Dreama let go at one point to go fly around Lyric before Cyprus left her side as well, only he flew toward Andrew. Being abandoned didn't make a hitch in her movements as she continued to follow Lyric into the forest. Nyssa could be heard farther away, normally followed by the sound of death.

Lyric smiled at the young girl and let her sit on his broad shoulder. The two chatted for a bit cutely before he began pointing out fresh growing plants. She seemed to love the little show and tell he was showing. They started to head off the path and he had to keep her from wandering away to gather the flowers.

Andrew kept close to them, but he was in assassin mode. His senses felt heightened and he let more affect him. Every scent he inspected, everything that moved he analyzed and every sound he sorted out and heard separately and yet at the same time. Andrew was not at all obvious with his caution, and one glancing at him wouldn't have a clue. He couldn't help the small grin as he watched the children and Lyric. he finally walked to Praxis side, slipping his hand from his blade to around her waist firmly. Cerberus was still in his other hand but was was quiet now and not fighting Andrew. Andrew felt the rain hitting him and gave Praxis a small smile.

As Praxis felt his hand slip around her waist and just gave him a sideways glance. She smiled slightly, a private smile just for him, but kept walking. She had her cloak on but she didn't have the cloak up. As the rain fell it made her hair sparkle and her skin glisten as it slowly ran down her defined cheekbones like diamond tears.

Lyric was soon letting Cyprus sit on his other shoulder as they walked a bit farther into the forest. They were getting closer but it was a far walk from the house since he had to make sure his parents hadn't known about it when he originally made the odd little home.

Andrew returned her smile, his just as private and reserved for her. 'I love you,' he mouth, giving her a secret grin as if this were some sort of cute game. He rather enjoyed playing to be honest. cerberus poked his head out, felt the rain, and happily took to now hiding in Andrew's cloak. He laughed a little, lifting the dog so that he could kiss the top of his head. "told you you'd thank me in the end,' he said to him, lowering him into the cloak again.

Praxis gave him a side glance and a cute grin. 'I love you too, blood sucker.' she mouthed as she pushed her hair back, her fingers lingering on her neck as she did. When she saw Cerberus she just chuckled softly and slid her hand into Andrew's cloak, pet the dog, and then let her fingers trail her husband to be's abs before her hand fell to her side again.

They came to a fork in the path, well, one that only he could see, and he let the children pick which way they went. Of course the two chose the longer way but he had to admit, it was a funner way and far more beautiful.

Andrew let his lips curve in a soft smile, one not often warn by him, as she lingered across his skin for a moment. His free hand rubbed her side sweetly, gently pulling her a little tighter to him. he didn't mind the long walk, he was rather glad to know it was a good distance from the manor. Cerberus licked at her hand while she loved on him, but his head remained safely under the cloak and away from the rain as she pulled away.

Praxis saw the smile and couldn't help her own. She loved it when he smiled that was for sure. As he held her tighter she moved closer to him, which made her hand just trail back over his abs and go back to the little pup who seemed to want the attention. She doted on him and kept scratching behind his ear. After a while she let her nails trail Andrew again as she started to let her arm fall again.

They past along a cliff edge, though they were quite well enough away from it, and over a rushing waterfall. The view was beautiful, even in the heavy rainfall. It was obvious this house was made for those with wings because even Lyric had a hard time hopping over the waterfall, since he had to jump from one stone to another. He didn't mind though, the whole movement had a smile on his face as he remembered when he first came this way with Aldora.

Andrew continued to follow Lyric, and also continued to keep a lax eye on the children. He trusted the man would do them no harm, hell Andrew would let Praxis tear him apart if he did, but he enjoyed watching them having so much fun. When they reached the crossing, Andrew let Praxis ahead of him and, after scanning behind them quickly and finding nothing, he too began his journey across. This kind of thing was something Andrew truly missed. The possibility that one could be severely hurt or killed while doing something they must. He relished in hopping from stone to stone and never lost his balance once. His eyes lit up as they used to on nights the two spent up all night joking about in the common room, but his face remained stoic.

Praxis didn't even notice how long it was taking for them to reach their destination. By now it had nearly been an hour and Lyric didn't seem to be stopping any time soon, and she wasn't about to complain. She missed this and that was evident in the way she carried herself. Letting the world around her control her steps, she'd close her eyes and tilt her head up, straining her neck, just so the rain could wash over her and the wind could caress her body. It was wonderful. Her wings continued to flutter over her back, making her wish she had a dress that cut down so her wings could have the freedom the craved. She ignored it for now, as best she could, and just acted like she use to before she had control of her transformations and before she changed into the odd trance she had between harpy and herself.

Andrew let his hand slide up her back with a slight grin. "Why not let me help you?" he asked. He knew she'd know what he was asking about as he let his fingers delicately slide over where her wings were. He would tailor her clothes so that her wings could be free; he could see what she wanted. She wasn't very good at hiding her feelings for nature. He smiled at her lovingly, kissing her cheek. He too was enjoying the outside. He knew he'd need to find a live animal while they were out here though, the sun shone so brightly here.

The sun might have normally been strong but today was very dark as the storm continued to tumble in. The rain was getting thicker and it started to get harder to see anything just a few feet ahead. That didn't change Praxis' reaction to his fingers on her back. Shivering slightly, she closed her eyes and let out a content sigh. The heat coming off her wing tattoo was quenched only by his cold fingers, and even then it was still as boiling hot as the rest of her skin. She shook her head however and smiled. "I don't have many outfit's as it is, I might as well keep this one in one piece." She gave him a quick, burning kiss on the cheek as she continued to follow Lyric. She couldn't help wondering how he was able to handle the heat that most normally wizards couldn't even stand being close to.

Andrew chuckled a little, but nodded his head slightly. He accepted her hot kiss with a sweet smile. He wondered how long it would be until they reached the place, but he also didn't care. He rather enjoyed the view and the walk. It made him much more comfortable to know this hide out would be quite a trek to get to. He was relived, and felt more like his children would be kept safe.

An hour later Lyric turned his head slightly, the children were now hanging from his outstretched arms and dangling over him, to speak to the other two. "Just about another half hour and we'll be there. We just have to get over this hill." He said, nodding forward at the hill they were getting to. It was high and steep and didn't look easy to walk over at all. Clearly this wasn't a place for people who couldn't fly to be traveling around.

Praxis nodded as she looked over the hill. She looked down at her boots and shrugged. She had walked up worse areas then this, she figured this wouldn't be that bad. The stones were slippery with rain, however, and the mud was thick, making it a bit more difficult than she thought. Praxis handled it with poise, however, and didn't really seem to have much difficulty with it from the outside. Mentally she was laughing at how wrong she had been.

Andrew was entranced a little by the hill. Merlin he loved his job. He was getting up the hill with ease, only stumbling a few times. He followed them, constantly looking about and listening to every single sound.

Just as he had stated, it took them near a half hour to get over the hill and into a deep valley gorge that was dug into the mountain slope before them. There, on the tallest tree--and most of the trees were handsomely tall--in the center of a vast amount of large trees so that one could only see it if directly below it, even above it was covered year round, were two glass orbs around the branches. Huge orbs that were big enough for multiple rooms within. The children flew up and started playing around with the glass and making faces while Lyric looked for the walking entrance. He finally found it and a door opened up from the wood, one that was impossible to notice earlier. He looked back and smiled at the look on Praxis face before motioning for them to follow.

Praxis' eyes followed the children until she was rooted in place. She remembered this place, vaguely, but she did. Her mother loved this place and on days when her father was busy in the manor the two would fly into the forest and back here as if it were their little clubhouse. Here was where her mother left her things, where she sang, where she danced. This was her mother's world and she remembered every bit that she could cling to. Her eyes were actually watery before she realized she was suppose to continue following Lyric.

Andrew noticed the look on his loves face before he noticed the structure up in the trees. He kissed her cheek and held her tightly. He let her go to follow Lyric, trailing right behind her. It was indeed a magnificent looking place. he was beginning to feel better about this whole arrangement.

the staircase in the tree was a spiral one that went the whole with of the inside, which was large enough for three Hrukjans, wolf form, to stretch out from nose to tail. By the time another door opened to a wooden bridge that was strung between the two orbs, the children had already found a window and flown into the orb that seemed to hold a small bedroom along with a play room on the top area of the orb. Below it was a living space or a den and below that was another bedroom, this one a bit larger. The other orb had a library, kitchen, dinning room, and a flat roof for relaxing on. Lyric lead Praxis and Andrew toward the children.

Praxis remembered this place more and more as she looked around. Once in the first orb and looking up the metal staircase into her old, and first room, she couldn't help but grin. The room had been redone for her sister when they found out her mother was pregnant, so half of the room was littered with her toys and a small bed while the other half had a white crib with hand painted designs, something her mother had spent moths on. She put her hand on it while she looked through the room, thinking of her mother, of Helios, and of the Emma that Andrew wanted.

Andrew followed closely, relaxing now that they were enclosed and supposedly at safety. He kept mindful of the blade against his hip, but he didn't reach for it at every noise. He wandered through the whole setup, placing Cerberus down when he entered the orb with the kitchen. The puppy dropped his tail in slight fear, bu Andrew knelt and lifted him under his front legs. His back legs were still grounded. "Sink or swim," Andrew said with a grin. If the dog couldn't be safe up here that was fine, He could remain at the bottom if he needed too, or in one of the orbs and just not allowed near the bridge. He pulled his wand out in case the dog did fall, he could levitate the puppy back up.

Praxis rocked the cradle with a soft smile on her lips. She felt the blankets and pillow, the lining and the wood, all of which had been had made by her mother just for their future child. It had never been used since Praxis' crib had been moved to the main house and was either destroyed or lost somewhere by now. She left the cradle alone while she turned to watch the children. They were playing with all of her old toys and relaxing while Lyric entertained them. Smiling, she left them to play while she went to find out where Andrew was with the pup. When she found them she smiled. "He's scared huh?" She whispered as she walked up behind him. "Bring him in with the children, that'll calm him down."
