"Mother that is between you and Father. And no mother, I would not besmirch your name. And I am hurt that train of thought crossed your mind. She may be shy or what not. There are a lot of reasons she may choose her path. But that is just it, it is her path. Not ours.

"I know where I went wrong in a lot of things, and I will not go wrong here. So that is why I am asking mother, as your son. respect her wish one way or the other. We do not know what it is right now. By the Nine Hells she may even spur me. Who knows?

"You remember what it was like when it was told I was your son. So you know what I am going through." He sighs at the thought of Mil. "Mother, she may have hurt me, but so have others. If I am to 'grow up', as many tell me, then I must forgive all. Not select few."

He sat there and watched her, then shook pulled out a flask and took a huge swig from it. Then tossed it to her. "To bloodlines." If she took a drink, she would know instantly it was THE special brew.

She took the offered flask. "To Bloodlines, may ours be eternal." She took a swig and then smiled as she wiped at her mouth with the back of her hand while hanging the flask back. "As far as the though crossing my mind. The exact thought was that I was thankful that you were not raised to speak of others in such a way. Because I know the things you could tell her, but I would like to think that I know you better than to believe you would say them."

She stood for a moment and kissed his cheek again, her warmth heightened by the brew. She loved the favor of it and the way it made her feel, as long as she didn't ever overdo it again. She returned to her seat then. "I will respect her wishes. But I have a favor to ask in return. Have my back on this one son. There is nothing that tears me up more than knowing that someone from my family, especialy my bloodline, who is not speaking to me. So if she chooses to not meet me, for whatever reason. Talk to her for me?"

Oh now that was a new look for Venis. This look was almost pure innocence. There was pleading in that look. "I need my family son, all of my family." Her look was still there. It was the most honest expression of emotion the woman had shown upon her face in hundreds of years. "And yes, I remember. I know all too well what it is that you are going through" Heh, whaddaya know, the tone of voice matched the expression. And both were genuine. What had been going on in the Goddess' life lately?

He listened to her and nodded. "Good to know you do not think I am a truly vengeful, callous, beastie. Nope not a mean bone in my body. I am mister niceness." He chuckled at that.


"Mother, I will talk to her. But that is all I can do. I will not force her on anyone and have anyone forced on her. Lots of that going on. But I will talk to her if she chooses that route."

He looked at her and cocked his scaly head again at the look and voice. "Okay old lady, spill it. What has brought this on? Do not tell me you can not handle the old brew anymore." right now he was a little shocked at that emotion and well also slightly nervous. He had not seen her like this before.

Busted! She drew her legs up under her long dress and hooked the heels of her shoes to the part of the barstool that was in front of her. "Thank you for saying you'll speak to her baby." A change in expression and voice at his words. Eyebrow arched. "I'll show you an old lady. You know, you're going to live thousands of years yourself there kid. Hundreds of thousands even." Not that she was thousands of years old. She was still a kid herself, compared to say JonLouis.

With a sigh she hugged her knees to her chest and pulled down at the dress even though she knew she was completely covered by it's length. And then the soft voice was back. "It's not the brew son. I had to deal with something today. I wish your fath ... step-father had been here to deal with it." A slow blink and then another change to her tone of voice, but not her expression. The joy in her voice was not a match to her face at all. "But Casie can have her twins back now."

Of course, there could have been more, but that was what was first and foremost. Perhaps once that conversation was out of the way the other things would resurface. And if she couldn't talk to her son than who could she talk to?

He looked at her and smirked. "Well when I have lived millions of years, as you have, then I will quit drinking." He saw her mood and put kidding aside.

"Kahn or Furball?" He looked at her, concern now etched. "And I think you best begin from the beginning and tell me all. This is not like you." Now it was a case of concern for her. Maybe he could help someone at last.

"So as you tell me, spill it missy."

Re: Back on duty ... again

A partial smiled curled teasingly at the corners of her lips. He still considered Gawain as one of his step-father's though Venis and Gawain had never married. "Kahn, well, either of them would have handled this day better than I had. Though, I think I handled it better than Tasha did." Now she had a few thoughts wondering to Gawain and what had been wrong with him lately. Everything had been fine when she was in the basement, then suddenly things were not fine anymore. Her best friend had pretty much abandoned her, and she had no idea why.

But she digressed. "The beginning huh?" Well, there was something to be said for time to talk in peace. "Casie was having nightmares. Bad ones, that she wasn't remembering. So she came to me. I went into her memories and found she had a dream walker. He was a wicked little bastard. The first time we were in her head I scared him and nearly bled him to death. The second time, it became more."

She lowered her legs and began to gather the bottom of her dress to pull it up. She was wearing her bikini he made her, he had seen her in less. She exposed the stitches in her stomach and the gnarly bruise that was still fading slowly. But at least now it was shades of green and yellow with some purple, it was black. There was a big white bandage that looked like it was tucked under her bikini bottoms, it was covering the puncture wounds, though they were closer to healed than the stitches. And she had re-pierced her belly button already, but it was red and puffy like it was infected.

She was looking down at her stomach for a moment before she looked up at him with a look upon her face that showed the slightest hint of worry. So she tried to crack a joke. "Looks like I'm going to have to do some crunches to get my six pack back." She smiled, not sure he would find the humor in her comment. But with the swelling and the puffiness, you couldn't tell the woman had a body builder's build. At least not her abs anyway.

She looked back down at her stomach and ran her finger over the stitches. "These should be ready to come out in a day or two, I hope. But you know, it took a hell of a lot of evil and one very wicked spell to injure me. Tasha took good care of me though. Had to cut some of my liver away." She looked back up at him. "The dream walker did this to me. "I was smart enough to not go in alone the second time. He knew who Airtia was, but they were all old memories."

She was trying to make sure she went in an order that made sense. "I went and got Air to come with me into Casie's mind the second time. Thankfully, because while the dream walker was trying to kill me he sent two eight foot spiders after Cas. Airtia dealt with the spiders and helped Cas take control. But it was too late. He and I had already gotten into a knock down drag out fight. He did this when he tackled me to the ground." She sighed and let her dress fall finally. She looked at Dre then. A slow blink as she placed both her hands upon her stomach.

She drew her legs back up then and hugged them to her body. "So we came out of Casie's head and Tasha dealt with this and JonLouis issued the death warrants, and today I executed them." The mere memory of what she had done was turning her stomach again. But she had survived it all before, and would have to again someday. "Tasha, Leviathan and Kjay went after the dream walker, a warlock named Will. Kjay killed him, after they tore him to shreds."

"I don't think Tasha had ever been involved in a kill like that before. She kind of went a little crazy for a moment." She shuddered at the thought. "Casie and Airtia and I dealt with the man who was in charge of Will and his actions. It was Deacon Frost, Casie's ex-husband and the father of her children. I killed him baby. It had to be me, Casie would have never survived it. Now I'm sick to my stomach. But I'll be ok. I always am." There it was, there was the Goddess who always put her self last in order to save the world. Yet, she still sounded sad or something.

He nodded. "Yeah a beer keg does not suit you. What would Kahn think?"

He smirked and went on listening. Did it surprise him that these women could go to such extremes lengths? No. After all he had been raised around them and he was sure some of it was laid at his feet. Which was fine, he could and would accept it.

"Sounds fun to say the least. Seems I missed a good show. As far as this vither Deacon, I am sure he is getting what he deserves. As you said, you had to. Cassie is great, but if she could have handled that she would have long ago.

"Everyone does what they have to in order to survive. You especially. You are the Goddess of Protection. There were two innocents that needed protecting. There was your friends and family. So stop beating yourself up. Yes I know you are, to kind hearted at times mother.

"There are times that you have to realize a job has to be done and feelings can not get involved. I realized that while you were away, and though I often failed at that fact. But you are right, I know you will be okay. You are a tough old bird. But what of the others? Is there a need to worry about them?"

She nodded silently, hearing what he said. She hoped that he didn't blame himself for any of this. This was all on her and Casie this time. They made their choices. Tasha, Airtia, and the animals simply came along for the ride.

As far as beating herself up, she wasn't really beating herself up over the deaths as she was over getting Tasha involved. That had proven to be a bad idea. And now she was worried about the little Furgirl. "I'm worried about Tasha son. She kinda snapped out there. I think something more than the deaths is wrong with her, but she keeps telling me that she's fine." She lowered her head and rested her eyes on her knees.

He had an inkling of what was going on, but it was not his place to tell her. If Tasha wanted people to know then she would tell them. "Just keep her away from the pianos is all I will say."

He looked at her once more, she looked so tired. "You go rest. And I mean actually rest woman. Do not make put a scaley foot up side your impromptu chastity belt arse. I have a trip to prep for. It is time to lay father to rest and seems I am to be the new Lord of the House."

His face showed what he thought about that.

When Dre mentioned piano's she looked up and over at the piano that was across the room. Epiphany said Tasha had fainted when she had seen that piano the first time. Could she be being haunted by memories of Gareth? It was something worth asking about. "I'll try." She looked back at Dre then.

Ok, so she looked a little worse for wear, some might say she looked exhausted, if not physically than at least mentally. So when her son told her to go get some rest, who was she to argue. She nodded in silence while she listened to what else he was saying. When he was done she put her feet back on the floor and stood from the stool. Then she took a few steps to close the gap between them and reached up putting her arms around his neck. As she hugged him tightly she turned her head and laid the side of her face against him closing her eyes.

She would not release unless he hugged her back and he probably knew that. But she needed this hug from her son either way. "You will be an excellent Lord of the House son. You make all of your parents very proud. And no matter what, remember that I love your father and I love you very much baby." She would release him from the hug once it was returned. And she saw the look upon his face. How cute to see a Dracon get such a look. She placed one hand on the side of his face and kissed the other side. "Goodnight son. I love you" And she turned and headed up to bed. If he needed her again, he always knew how to get her.

He did hug her back and nodded. "Time shall will tell mother if I am or not. Now off to sleep mother. you look like the dead." He smirked at that and then nodded. "I love you as well, and I will see you when I get back. Unless the Inn burns down. Let us try and NOT do that shall we?"

With that he went to finish up his own packing and such.

Venis chuckled and nodded as she headed up the stairs. She went back into her room, closing and locking the door behind her. She undressed and went back to bed. It wasn't long before the vampire was already asleep.

Venis smiled as she looked up from her papers. Always with the papers. "Maddie, you don't have to knock when the door's open dear." She sat down what she was doing and turned in her chair. "What can I do for you my dear?" Venis crossed her legs now that they were no longer under her desk.

Maddie sat down in another chair, and pulled out a jewerly box and handed it to her.

"I wanted to say thank you for helping me, with the situtation with Benjamin. If it hadn't been for you I miht not be around now."

When Venis opened the box she would see a heart shaped, red jasper necklace.

Venis opened the box as she spoke. "You have no need to thank me Madeline. It was both my pleasure and my duty, for more than one reason." She saw the Jasper necklace and grinned. "Are you trying to say I need to relax?" She laughed as she removed the lovely from the box. "Would you please dear?" And she handed the necklace to Madeline as she moved her ten tons of hair.

She turned in her chair so the necklace could be clasped. Once it was in place she would run her hand over it to settle it. It looked rather lovely with the black choker she wore with a gold pentacle on it and the gold chain that disappeared into her dress. If anyone ever saw what was on the end of that chain, they might be surprised. But the jasper heart rested perfectly between the other two.

She smiled as she rose up to kiss Madeline on the cheek. "Thank you, I love it. It was very sweet of you." Venis wished she had a reflection so she could see it. But she knew it had to look lovely, after all Madeline made it, and she wouldn't have made something for her that looked horrible.

Maddie carefully put the necklace on Venis and laughed at her comment.

"No I'm not saying you need to relax dear friend, and mentor. I know you need to relax. Like I said I just wanted to say thank you. It looks lovely on you. Now I hate I can't stay a bit, but I have other gifts to deliver. I'll see you later Venis. I can tell your busy so I'll see myself out."

With that she gave Venis a hug, and made her way out. Next on her list was Tasha.

Venis returned the hug, she liked hugs from her family and friends. She watched as Maddie left then picked up the papers she was reading and touched the heart again as she read.

Shuda opened up the door to his room walking out and slowly closes it behind him since Seleen was still sleeping. When the door was finally closed to walked over to the other side of the hall to Venis's Room, The was open but he knew how to be polite so he knocked on the door frame. "Excuse me, are you busy?"

Venis was sitting in a chair with her feet propped up of the edge of another chair. She had cotton between her toes and noticeably wet polish on her toe nails. She was painting her fingernails the same pinkish color. It wasn't that she liked the color all that much, it was just the color she pulled out of the box of nail polish colors.

She spoke before even looking up. "Come on in Shuda, what can I do for you? If the door's open you don't have to knock." She sat up and lowered her feet to the floor, keeping her toes spread and yet holding the cotton between them. She was wearing black jeans and a black T-shirt that looked like it had been customized by Gawain or something. Her hair was loose and laying over the back of the chair and in a pile on the floor behind it. She looked up at Shuda and smiled.

"Excuse me but I was taught it was polite to knock before entering someones place." He does a slight bow before entering her room. "Well from what I have seen you have a lot of diamonds. I was wondering if you have a certain one that I might be able to get from you."

Venis smiled. "Um, if I don't, I can try to make it for you." She looked over at the trunks in the corner of her room to the left. "If you need a ten inch one like my door jam, I have to make it. But just about anything else can be found in one of those two trunks over there. They're nothing but diamonds."

The green and black trunk, which was full of diamonds on trays, was 32"l x 17"w x 23"h. Almost two feet tall and over two feet long made plenty of room for diamonds. The Burgundy and rose trunk, which was full of loose diamonds, was 30"l x 18"w x 20.5"h. There were hundreds of thousands of diamonds in there. So many that it would take months to go through them all. None of the loose ones were flawless. And they weren't all cut to exact standards. They were for costume jewelry or for being re-cut or any number of other purposes.

She started blowing on her fingernails after she closed up the polish and set it on the table. "Help yourself. My nails are wet." She would let him go and play in the trunks as long as he wanted. If he found something he wanted then all the better. If not, she would just make it for him if he could. Some of the diamonds she had were upwards of 11 carats. She figured there had to be something in there he liked. She was a bit curious as to why he wanted a diamond though. She would ask later if he didn't volunteer.

He smiles and bows to her. "Thank you very much Venis." He went over to the green and black chest and opens it up. He saw the diamonds on the shelves and he picked up shelve after shelve looking at them shaking his head. "None of these will work." So he gently put them back in the chest before closing it. He went over to the other chest and opened it up and his eyes widened. "Ok then this will be a little bit harder. He sighed as he closed his eyes and put his hand into the loose diamonds. He did not know if Venis would be able to tell what he was about to do. Small trickles of flames extended from his finger tips running across the loose diamonds as if the flames were just there to examine the diamonds that were around his hand. After a minute or so the flames went back into his hand and he shook his head. " I am sorry but none of these will work. Is if possible for you to make the diamond that I require since you said you could make them?" He stood back up looking at her.

Venis watched as he headed for the trunks of diamonds. "Not a problem Shuda. I trust you." She did, and it's not like she wouldn't let just about anyone pick their own diamond without her standing over them. It wasn't so much that she trusted everyone, just that she could replace anything that anyone took.

Shuda went through the green trunk first, he found nothing in there. That seemed rather odd to her. But he went through the loose diamonds next. She could feel his flames as hr used them to feel each of the diamonds in the trunk. She wasn't as surprised that he couldn't find what he was looking for in there. Those were just where she tossed diamonds that were just not exactly what she was going for. Some of them were pretty good, others had some flaws and needed to be re cut. Some were just junk to be turned into dust.

He wanted a diamond made? Sure, she could try. "I can give it a try. Tell me what you need and I will see what I can do." She figured that if he went through the diamonds that quickly, he knew exactly what he was looking for. The question was, would it be something she could make. She would find out shortly, wouldn't she?

He just smiles as he always does. "Well I would like a diamond that has a certain property on it. As in when you look at from one side it is like a fire red and when you look at it from another side it looks glacier blue. Is there a way you can do that?" He hoped that she could.
