There was a commotion that woke Aerian as she stretched and rolled out of bed, she made her way into the hall a group was closing in on Harely who was on the ground and looked to have taken a beating.
It was an instinct that saw Aerian draw her blade and slid beneath one of them about to drive his own sword through Harley, the blade deflected by Aerians in a shower of sparks. Aerian rolled and was crouched between the small group and Harley as she stood the group backed up.
“Did I not say she was off limits?” Aerian barked the flash of anger through her eyes.
“She deserves everything she has coming to her,” The guy from yesterday now snapped at Aerian, she didn’t blink as her right hand sent him to the ground.
“You’re not wrong, she probably does, but that’s not your choice unless you’d like your chance,” Aerian replied darkly “We do this the old way, my way, you and Harley if you win she’s out of here,”
“And if she wins,” He asked coldly
“That’s up to her,” Aerian replied as she turned offering her hand to Harley, the moment her back was turned she felt him move toward her, again on an instinct, she turned her blade blocking his attack as she turned past kicking the back of the knee with a crack sending him to the floor.
Aerian would have driven her own blade through him had Serah not caught her wrist “You said no more murder,”
Aerian flicked her blade in her palm and then with a flick of her wrist snapped it into the ground at her feet.
Domi was in the hallway now, rubbing his eyes, while Virra lounged against the door in just the large tunic with her bandaged thigh exposed.
“What the hell…?” Domi said, motioning for Harley to near their room. “What happened?”
Harley ducked past the small group as Serah shoved the guy away “Alistair doesn’t fucking listen,” she snapped angrily “You’re girl just gave him a chance to put it right, then he tried to jump her and likely got his knee broke for his trouble, had I not stopped her she would have ended his miserable existence,”
Aerian picked her blade up glaring at Alistair before she walked toward Harley and pushed her into their room “You need to accept we’re taking control, and ignoring the rules is not going to fly any longer, if you have a problem then you take it to the pit simple as that, and you fight until you can’t stand,”
“So we kill in the pit, just not in the halls?” Alistair spat in frustration.
“She never said kill,” Serah replied darkly “And breaking you’re knee probably just saved your ass the embarrassment of getting your ass kicked for the third time today,”
Virra straightened as Harley was pushed to the room, while Virra has been leaning with little weight put on her leg but a limp was noticeable, as small as it was. “I agree with Serah. The pit before was to sort out issues not a vice to kill. Come, Firefly and Serah. It’s time we talk. Domi, you deal with Alistair.”
Domi yawned but moved to point to another and himself to host him up. “Off to the infirmary.”
He walked while supporting Alistair, once back on the table, he inspected the damage. “Damn, she’s still got a kick.” Domi proceeded to give him a bottle, then began to work on a cast. “Everyone is so uptight. So why even bother, you know that things are changing, you’re pushing the envelope.”
“So she won’t kill but she has no problem breaking my leg? She really is good as they said she was, but all our problems started with Harley they should end with her death, she would have killed any of us just as easily,” Alistair sighed darkly, the pain now ripping at him from the knee “I just want her dead, to answer for all those we’ve lost to her recklessness or even her own hand, why is that so wrong?”
“Hm. Perhaps she had no problem breaking your leg to defend herself, which is easily repaired. But as for a life, that is not. This goes to prove that Aerian means to right the wrong. She could have killed you but did not. You speak as though it’s simple. We all know that a majority of you if not all, want Harley dead. But doesn’t that defeat the purpose of no killing? No murder? Everyone has done something unforgivable, it takes a stronger person to give that individual a chance against all the odds to prove worth. After all, didn’t the Ever Present give all of you that same chance?” Domi said calmly.
“Serah is the reason she didn’t kill me, I don’t think your girlfriend planned to let me live, seems she says one and thing and does the other, an irrational mine field is that one” Alistair sighed softly “Though I probably shouldn’t have tried to blindside her,”
“Don’t pretend to know. The fact remains you are alive. Instead of using it for the negative put a foot forward instead of back. We are looking to the future, which means the past has to be left let to lay.” Domi finished up the cast and looked to him. “Yes, that was foolish. Never strike from the backside, which can be viewed as backstabbing. Metaphorically and physically.”
“I will just thank you for sorting my leg, and pray your girlfriend doesn’t hold a grudge,” Alistair replied blankly.
Domi moved to begin to clean the area. “Instead of hope, why not take initiative? Look we aren’t here to dictate or force anything. But a change was needed. I think you and everyone would be better off not fighting against it and see where it goes. She had her reasons for everything. But if I may make a suggestion, take the bull by the horns. Apologize for blind siding her. I’ll be there and she won’t kick your ass.”
“I think I’m just going to stay out of the way today doc, but I will make my peace in time,” He replied with a calm in his voice that was odd in its direction.
Domi nodded to Alistair, moving to place his hand on his shoulder. “Be safe, no more pushing it. Yeah?”
Aerian made her way to quickly check over Harley as she eyed the cuts and bruises, Serah stepped in and then closed the door “You were going to kill him after you set the terms, you would have killed him,” she stated firmly
“It was reaction, he attacked from behind he’s lucky I didn’t snap his neck,” Aerian replied “They are still not falling in line, but perhaps they know we’re not kidding around now,”
“Alistair riled them up, Harley was unlucky, this will teach them, Aerian you just need to keep your temper in check, there isn’t anyone here who can go against any of you three and come out intact, tensions are high but it will settle, if you’re willing to let it,” It was an odd turn for Serah but she was the voice of reason “You over reacted, and now he can’t settle this with Harley and that’s going to just piss him off more,”
Virra chuckled returning to sit in the bed. “Emotions in check. That is a challenge given our circumstances.” She patted her belly which now has formed a small bump.
Serah stared in though before looking at Aerian “Wait, both of you?” She then looked to Harley who was looking just as stunned by yet another revelation, “And she still kicked your ass?”
“Aerian always was kinda special” Harley replied softly “Not really the brightest choice, combat while pregnant? Even for you that seems reckless,”
“I’m fine, and I would never have put myself in a situation I couldn’t control, you know that. We have to ensure the future of The Ever Present, and my family, I can’t do that without support,” Aerian shrugged softly “We need to stop fighting among ourselves, past is past, but the future is what matters,”
“Perhaps not. But, we aren’t going to ignore the future. We need support while attempting to gain the strength that the Ever Present was. Now, it could be better than before. The fact remains, no murder and no killing. Look ahead and not behind. We do have Domi looking out for us, as well as each other. Now you know the truth of emptiness between her and me. We returned regardless of our situation and we aim to make this right and steer in the right direction.”
“I must admire your commitment, it’s hard for some of us to consider, and we’ve changed leadership twice in the last day, not hard to understand why we are little rattled?” Serah replied softly the cold edge of her voice now had dissolved “Your boy talks sense, asked I give this new direction a chance and so I will stand in support, but the choice should be theirs not because they have to but because they wish to?”
Aerian nodded softly “Anyone who wants to remain I said it before they can, things are not going back to what they were, and if that’s the reason then that will be their choice as well, we are here to lead not to dictate,”
“It will take time. Everlands wasn’t built in a day and we have had our fair share of bumps along the way. Much the same as Ever Present. She loves the group as a whole, which is why she came back. It takes a strong person to admit fault and go about correcting it. Right, Firefly?” Virra smirked, leaning back, extending her hand to Aerian. “Harley, you probably should get those scrapes looked at.”
Aerian slipped into Virra with a kiss to her neck “It will take time, but we will get to where we were once, we will lead by example, seems to work well for my dad,”
“Still can’t believe your dad is Kane Elcarus, that’s a lot to digest,” Serah replied, “Anyway if you’ll excuse me I need to go talk with a few people, I will return in a while and give the lay of how things are?”
“I’m Ok Aery, bruised pride more than a few scrapes, though I’m sure your doctor friend will check me all the same when he returns,” Harley added as she settled back by the fire now beginning to rebuild it.
“Sounds good, Serah.” Virra watched as the woman left, then returned a kiss to Aerian’s crown, shifting her gaze to Harley.
Just then the door opened and Domi entered, motioning for Harley to sit in a chair to inspect her. “Your injuries are superficial. You’ll be fine and Alistair definitely had a broken leg, Aerian. He may at one point come to apologize, though be wary of him, both of you. He regrets blind siding you.”
“I suspect he may try something else, I can’t expect everyone to play nice, but you treated him so they can’t say we are treating anyone any different, I think you’ve spent more time performing triage since we got here than we have had together,” Aerian smiled softly.
“Face hurts, ego hurts, but I’m still alive so that’s something,” Harley smiled softly before standing, “I think I’m going to go hide in my room for a while if I can help just send for me,”
Domi nodded to Harley, watching her leave the room and sighed. He moved over to Aerian and Virra, laying his head down in Aerian’s lap. Virra leaned to kiss and nibble at Aerian’s neck. “Yes, you’ve been a busy man.”
“I’m fine so long as I can do my part. It’s been tiring but there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do to make this go smooth and keep my beautiful angels happy.”
“And there isn’t anything we wouldn’t do to keep you happy,” Aerian barely even though as her response came from her lips. As she felt Virras kissed she whimpered softly, “I would do anything for either of you,”
Domi caressed Aerian from her ankles to her thigh, turning his head to kiss her thigh with a playful nibble. “How are my beautiful mothers to be? Your hand Aerian? Your leg Virra?”
“It’s still sore, Domi, though I figure it will be as such for a while yet. My bosom is sore…” Virra whispered.
“Oh, well, I can’t wait to help when it’s swollen with milk. Each of you.” Domi teased with a wiggle if his brows.
“You’re such a pervert…” Virra sighed with a smirk.
“But he’s our pervert, so many girls around here and he doesn’t so much as take a look. It’s nice,” Aerian mused softly as she let her fingers wander gently over Virra before she shifted to kiss Virra deeply.
The shift was met with Virra wrapping her arms around Aerian, due to her injury her movements were limited. But Domi began to nibble and kiss their necks, taking his time on each, it was apparent his goal was to mark them with hickies.
Aerian moaned as she felt Domi against her neck before she sat back and peeled off her top her eyes now looking to Virra “I think he’s trying to mark his territory.”
Virra smirked while leaning to kiss, Aerian deeply, though turned her cheek to rest against her naked bosom with a brief lick. Before grabbing him by the shirt to pull him up. “I don’t like being marked.” Though in the next instant her lips were on Domi’s neck, suckling intently with a groan from Domi. It was clear that the tides were turned and she was determined to mark him.
Aerian joined her nipping at Domis flesh before suckling hard. Before she shifted her attention to Virra, her hands now sliding up over her sides and over her stomach and then up to caress her breasts.
When Aerian’s lips left Domi’s neck, he had a mark, but on Virra’s side there was the peppering of such upon his flesh. A moan left her lips as Aerian touched her bosom. The thin fabric of the tunic separating from flesh contact, Virra parted from his neck, while turning her lips against Aerian’s in a deep kiss. Her hands lifted to cup and massage the mounds. Domi was watching them but began to loosen Aerian’s pants and dip a finger down to tease her hidden pearl, doing the same to Virra though dipped his hands beneath her tunic.
Aerian felt his touch and sighed deeply, as she squirmed against him before kissing Virra once more, Aerian moaned against Domis touch and the kiss.
A smirk appeared in his lips, while Virra moaned and attempted to adjust. “Don’t move too much, Virra.” He warned, as his hand appeared to quicken beneath her tunic. But now before Aerian could react his mouth was fixed greedily upon her bosom, centering on the flesh with a whip of his slick muscle. His finger sorted lower and sunk into her waiting folds, struggling around add a thumb for added to focus in her plump pearl.
Aerian pushed back into him as her eyes closed sinking down onto her elbows laid with her head against Virra, “He doesn’t play fair,” she murmured softly.
Virra chuckled, tilting Aerian’s chin up to press her lips against hers, the kiss was deep and hungry, passionate. As the sound were fed into the kiss, she head the buckle of his pants released. Before she registered what happened, Domi had ripped her free of her pants and was flipped over on her knees. While Aerian was face to face with Virra’s dripping gate, a glorious sight. Without a moment’s hesitation, Domi plunged himself deep within her silken folds, strong hands reaching around to massage and pinch her buds.
Aerian let her tongue flick against those warm juices with a soft whimper, as Domi plunged into her she felt her body tense, a low growl escaping her, feeling him fill her deeply she moaned now moving to allow her fingers to dip into Virras wetness, her tongue searching for Virras already swollen pearl.
Virra cried out with the dip of Aerian’s fingers, the slick tool focused on her pearl, tilting her head back with her hands lifted to tend to her own bosom.
Domi began to thrust into Aerian, while plucking and punching her buds, the speed increasing with the shrewd clapping of his hips against her bottom. A smack was heard, as one hand left a red mark but massaged the cheek apologetically, only to continue with the process.
Aerian growled as his hand struck her but felt her body tense, and yet felt herself only get wetter, as she probed Virra deeply with her fingers, her tongue flicking against the tender pearl. As he struck her again she pushed back into his has increasing the impact and causing her to whimper.
Virra was releasing those beautiful sounds, it was clear she was attempting to rest her leg. Her folds throbbed around the constantly delving digits, she was building to her release, and then it happened. A rush of juices was spent from her honey pot, causing her tremble and the more Aerian continued the more of her sweet nectar flowed.
To Aerian’s buck back, Domi massaged her half-moons then latched to her hips, pulling her back into the thrusting. The sound and smells in the room were carnal heaven. Just then Aerian felt his monstrous tool grow, inflating and stretching her passage. Suddenly twitching and exploding, filling her with gob after gob of his molten seed.
Aerian moaned deeply as Virras release struck, as Domi quickened her pace, she removed her fingers from Virra curling them into the bed, her own body heated causing her cry against the thrusts, as she felt him release with her she ground back against him before her body tensed, her muscles clamping against Domi milking every drop deep within her a low growl was lost the sheets beneath her.
Domi continued to rock within her, slowly, leaning forward to press her lips in a flutter along her spine a steady hand massaging Aerian’s shoulder tenderly. But he leaned to lick her ear. “I love you, Aerian.”
He removed himself with that articulate plop and swept the fiery haired woman in his arms. Shifting her to his right, while settling between the two woman with an arm curling around each. It was a tender moment, as he shifted his lips in gentle kisses between the two, recovering from the passionate moments and savouring this time before sleep stole them away.
Aerian shuddered against the kisses, as she slid into his lap and returned the kiss, her hand now reaching trail over Virra softly, before nestling into Domi and stretching her legs out and over Virra.
Virra glanced to Aerian with a smirk, learning against her and Domi. “Seems your plan to mark us backfired.” She mused, looking at his neck that was peppered with little hickies and one side with others but larger.
Aerian chuckled to her words with a grin before placing his hand on her stomach “I think he just likes it when we retaliate,” her words were soft, as she leant to kiss his neck softly.
