Aerian stirred stretching as gently as she could with Virra still in her lap, a yawn and a smile, seeing Domi asleep beside her and Virra in her lap. She placed her hand on Virras chest gently let allowing for a gentle squeeze of her breast, before she smiled and settled back to wait for them both wake.
Virra moaned in her sleep, as Aerian placed pressure on her bosom. Though didn’t stir, it seemed that her body was compensating on healing. But it was at the sound, that Aerian heard a chuckle. Looking in that direction, she saw Domi was awake with his dark eyes on Aerian. “Morning, my beautiful angel.”
“Mm morning to you too my handsome side kick” She smiled softly as she leant toward him her hand drawing closer for a gentle kiss “Today we start rebuilding, together, me, you and Virra, but we watch our backs, as always,” She smiled gently there was a renewed determination in her now that he would see.
“Hey. Who you calling sidekick?” He chuckled, sitting up and moving closer to Aerian, kissing her neck while looking down to Virra with a caress against her dark crown. “She’s going to be really sore…but we need to get her a cane or crutch to at least allow her mobility. Virra needs to heal…”
“Mmm” She whimpered softly to his kiss her body reacting instantly “So much hotter than a side kick,” she chuckled softly and he mentioned Virra and a cane she looked over her wife to be slowly with a grin “Still tempted to chain her ass to the bed and make her rest,”
Domi laughed now, planting a hand in a light caress over Aerian’s abdomen, kissing her neck again. “You know she could get out of those if she was determined enough. But I think she’d feel better carrying her weight, the crutch would help heal since there would be little weight upon it.”
“Yea but imagine what you could do to her,” Aerian replied with a dark smile before she let her hand trace over Virra gently “Of course she’d probably kick both our asses when she got free, I do love you both though, I couldn’t do half of what I do without you both,” There was a softness in her voice now that was rare for the redhead. Her hand now returning to cover Domis.
Domi smirked, curling his hand within Aerian’s. “Oh, I get the feeling that you’d enjoy watching.” He inhaled deeply with a glance to Virra. “You and I have business…though it would feel strange giving the Ever Present such without Aerian, wouldn’t you agree?”
“Something bothering you?” She asked softly watching him now “Don’t hide stuff, you don’t need to even as unique as our relationship is, I can’t do any of this without you, or Virra, we are family,”
“Aside from the fact I am taking care of my angels? Nothing. I just don’t want to leave Virra out of the plans with Ever Present. Since we met it has been the three of us doing everything together. Because she’s injured we have to take that into account.”
“Oh I wouldn’t dare,” Aerian smiled softly her free hand now running over the ring that had them connected “We can let her decide, she will want to be with us, but she may choose to rest in which case we can fill her in when we return, but she will be just as involved in every step, strong leadership was always the guiding force behind The Ever Present, and you see what happens when that fails, it becomes a power struggle, and causes chaos, we can’t allow that to happen again, right now the only people in The Ever Present we can trust are ourselves, everyone else is going to have to earn it,” A soft sigh as she smiled “It’s time, as I did that The Ever Present grows up, I want what I had with them before, minus a few of the other things of course,”
“Such as the sex parties? Orgies?” Domi chuckled now, nodding in agreement. Though gathered Aerian’s injured hand to check on and change the badges. Amidst the check, Virra did stir and silently watched Domi in the care he gave to Aerian.
“Oh don’t remind me,” Aerian groaned covering her face to hide the flush of colour, “I spent more time on my back than in the field at some points,”
Virra pressed her lips together attempting to adjust, though have in to a Domi’s assistance. But when Aerian leaned against the door and spoke, Domi and Virra exchanged glances. Virra lifted her hand to guide Domi’s lips against hers in a deep kiss, then meet his gaze. “I love you, Domi.”
“I love you, my angel.” Domi smirked, though extended his hand to Aerian as Virra did the same, it was clear by the tension in her shoulders that she was fighting the pain.
When Aerian came close, Domi pulled Aerian on to his lap, causing Virra to laugh. “We love you, Firefly. I love you.”
“As do I Aerian.” Domi said, kissing Aerian deeply, though drew back. “You said there is an Infirmary? I’d like to take a look. There might be something that can help you both with the inflammation and pain, that won’t hurt our children.”
Virra chuckled now, biting her thigh playfully, adjusting a slight but grimacing as it was clear her wound hurt. “Damn…wish I could drink or take herbs for the pain…” She mumbled, as Domi shifted to help her sit.
“It’s too late, Aerian. I saw that blush. It’s your past, while you might have enjoyed it. Times change…I hope. The only women I want to see on their backs and my face is my beautiful angels.” Domi mused.
“That surprised me. You really were involved with orgies and sex groups.”
“I was younger and I was angry at the world, sex dulled it, though have enough and it dulls everything,” Aerian sighed softly, a soft moan at Virras bite. Her hand gently tracing through Virras hair “Don’t worry Domi, there’s only one man allowed now, and the hottest girl I’ve ever had the pleasure of,”
“It was fun early on, but it became normal and then less so,”
Virra grimaced again, while Domi shifted to unwrap her bandage, she was only wearing a shirt and Aerian knew that the excess of the damage has soaked the bandage. “Oh, stop. You’re such a baby.” Domi said, but looked to Aerian. “I need fresh hot water and alcohol, the most pure we can to clean the wound. That includes yours, my angel.”
Virra lifted a hand to smack Domi, though he caught her wrist. “Stop. I’m here to help you. Not take advantage. Aerian has come up with the idea to chain you too the bed and in leaning to that idea. Not just for sexual fun, I need you to listen to me. You know my Uncle taught me everything he knows about anatomy and procedures. This is where you have to trust me and listen. I want the best for each of you, not just because you are with my children but because I love you both and cannot be without you.”
Virra stared at him for a long time, his words sinking in sedating her, though she nodded. “Yes, I love you too…and you Firefly will always be my rock and heart.”
As Virra spoke Aerian smiled deeply, her hand aching as she nodded to Domi’s words “We have medical grade in the infirmary,” She grinned “And yea we have a whole infirmary, for torture, they died so quick otherwise, had a decent doctor too until… Well I’ll have Harley get some,”
She moved from under Virra ensuring Virra stayed put walking to the door and sending the guard to bring Harley. As she turned and leant back on the door closing it “I want to hear you both say it again, I love you both, heart, body and soul, you’re my everything, I love you Virra forever and always” Her gaze turned to Domi “I don’t say it so much to you Domi but I love you too, and I will love both our children too,”
Aerian smiled as she slid back into Domi’s lap, kissing him then Virra each before there was a rap at the door causing her to look up, with a shake of her head.
“Come,” She called, a moment later and Harley slipped through, she looked calm and far less crazed in that moment as she eyed the scene before her, first to Virra then Domi before finally Aerian.
She stepped in and made her way to the edge of their bed “I … Lady Virra I feel as if this is somehow my fault, and will find a way to make this right, in losing control of myself, you were injured and as we are following the old rules now that places blame in my hands, the mistake by one has led to another being injured, I hope you can find a way to forgive me,” Harley sighed softly as she looked to Aerian who motion to the edge of the bed Harley sank upon it placing her hands in her lap “Aerian, yesterday was kinda chaotic, and you saw me in a real weird place, last night is honestly the first time in a long time I’ve been able to sleep and not worry about myself,”
“Harley not everything is going back to how it was, but right now I need to know if the infirmary is still intact?” Aerian replied firmly
“Yes, though since … we don’t use it much, but it’s still kept stocked, and used by those that can,” Harley shrugged in reply “Another bad choice I guess,”
“A bad choice that may ensure I keep my hand and my baby can walk properly, stop feeling sorry for yourself,” Aerian replied with a smile as she slid from Domis lap to her feet, she made her way to Harley. Aerian took her hand and pulled her to her feet as Harley stood she looked into Aerians eyes, there was for a moment something but she looked back to the floor.
“When I left I had a choice, kill you and continue life without you, or leave and know one day I’d have to come back to save you,” Aerian smiled softly “I chose the latter, because in some way I will always care for you Harley, just not like I used to, that is on you, but I can’t reign The Ever Present in without you, so now I’m asking for your help,”
“Anything, I would do anything for you Aerian,” Harley replied softly still staring at the floor.
“Good then help us take Virra to the Infirmary,” Aerian grinned and turned to help Virra to her feet with Domi.
Virra glared at Harley when she spoke, though softened her gaze before gritting her teeth to the surge of pain. “Yes, well, you didn’t drive the dagger into my leg, so on that you do not have…” She grunted a moment as Domi and Aerian helped her up, with an arm around each steady shoulder. “…my blood on your hands. Trust is earned, never given. Those words being said, I acknowledge we have our fair share to deal out. But you do too.”
“Doesn’t take away from the fact that I left myself open to Zias betrayal, probably caused it, so in context the blood is on my hands, just like Aerian leaving is,” Harley sighed softly as she walked beside them down the hall “I will find a way to make it up, or die trying,”
“I could have just walked in here, called you out and killed you Harley, you know that, but I haven’t, just ask Virra or Domi, you may be crazy and unstable but I have not once questioned you can be saved, twice you’ve had a blade at my throat and twice you’ve survived how are you not getting the last thing I want is you dead in all this? I need you to help me fix things,” Aerian replied softly as she wrapped an arm around Virras waist to help keep her steady “We will lead, but we can’t do that without The Ever Present seeing that things have changed, murder for no reason just isn’t going to fly any longer, which is why all assassination contracts are to be cleared through us, we need the realm to not want to hunt us all down and kill us, because trust me they will leave us be for now,”
“I know,” Harley sighed deeply before pushing open the door, beyond lay several beds and cabinets all stocked with medical supplies, Aerian helped Virra to one of the beds and helped her sit.
“Try to stay still please,” Aerian smiled kissing Virras cheek before wandering over to one of the cabinets and looking within “Needles, threads, alcohol, bandages, even some pain killers here, we had a decent supply line at one point, we will need to restore that,”
“Which we will,” Domi said beside Aerian, looking into the cabinet. “Its times like this Stacy or Jade would come in handy.” He sighed softly, though, pulled a jar from the shelf and removed two pills. Then went about to gather a basin of water, alcohol and glass of water. “Take this.” He offered Virra the two pills, as she eyed him suspiciously. “Don’t worry it’s safe for the baby.” Virra nodded to him, watching as he worked to clean and re-bandage. Once finished, he turned to Aerian, guiding her to sit on a chair, inspecting the wound before cleaning and bandaging her hands with a kiss to her palm.
She grimaced at the twinge before smiling “Thanks,” She waved her hand mockingly at Harley before turning to Virra “How you feeling baby? I mean you did get the worst out the three of us,”
Harley looked to Domi as she eyed him for a moment “How did you know you wouldn’t hit either of them? That shot at Zia, I’ve only seen one person with that kind of accuracy and she was running in blind, which makes me wonder how she was planning on not ending up dead, Zia wasn’t exactly an easy take down,”
“She would have died, trust me on that,” Aerian replied, clearly not revealing her last revelation to Harley “Let’s just say I’m just as dangerous without a weapon as I am with one,”
Virra lay on the bed, propped by some pillows arranged by Domi. “In truth, I feel like shit and hurt something bad.”
Domi kissed Virra softly. “The medication hasn’t kicked in yet. You’ll feel better then, but I want you to avoid standing or placing too much pressure on your leg.”
“How do you suggest, I do that?” She snapped, then after a moment, Virra’s eyes widened. “Oh no. No no. I’ll be a fucking gimp…”
“Better then wheels, look, Virra…A cane and crutch is better than a permanent limp. I know you don’t want that.” Domi explained. “That wound is deep and will need time to heal.”
“Fuck my life…” Virra groaned.
Domi looked back to Harley now with a shrug. “Blonde bitch had to die. She injured my angel. I went with instinct.”
“I swear he was born with a bow and arrow in his hands.” Virra mused.
“Not like I would have been able to complain if he’d have stuck an arrow in the back of my head? Though might have come back and haunted him for a while,” Aerian chuckled softly “He relies in instinct, no point second guessing an action that’s when you make mistakes,” She replied softly.
“Not always true,” Harley sighed softly “Sometimes you just make a bigger mess than you started with,”
“You tried to do it alone Harley, something like this, you can’t,” Aerian replied darkly as she now settled in a chair beside Virra “Family is what makes the realm go round, I guess somewhere in all your chaos you missed that point,”
“Or she just yearned for it.” Virra suggested while sighing softly, looking to Domi as he was busy looking over the room and cabinets. Finally he turned with two crutches and grinned to Virra. She rolled her eyes now. “Fucker…”
“This will help with mobility, but give you support until your leg has healed more, we will get a cane. Maybe with flames on it to give the illusion you are going faster.” Domi wriggled his brows with a grin.
“I think he likes this a little bit too much,” Aerian smirked softly watching Domi, “Just be good, please, you’re gonna be way more pissed when you’re in a fight and you are slow cause you didn’t listen to him, not to mention he’s going to be delivering our children, if you think he’s bad now what’s he going to be like then?”
Virra glanced to Domi, while shrugging. It took at least an hour before the medication kicked in. Domi helped Virra learn how to utilize the crutches, before long, Virra caught on. Then it was time to leave the infirmary, but Domi gathered a long skirt in order to cover Virra. She told him to enjoy it, being in a skirt. Though, there was a reason, Domi wanted to have it healed but laughed explaining she was hot.
Virra literally tried to lunge at him, as he dodged. Now it was time to face the Ever Present members and Virra refused to not be present.
