Aishani was holding Xander and Terra each in an arm within the master suite, nudging them while this she had found was soothing, not just from the uncomfortable ache of her bosom but to be able to nurture the children.
Kane was sat just in front of them, his hands gently placed upon each child watching them for moment “It’s good to be home with them my love,”
She looked to Kane while nodding to him, a soft and tender smile upon her plush lips. “Indeed, it is. Strange though, everything said and done, we’ve been dealing with the rise of the war for so long…now that it’s finished and things have returned to normal…” Aishani adjusted Terra to remove her mouth from one bosom, then extended her to Kane in order for him to burp her, while she did the same to Xander. The two infants very sleepy after a full tummy, though, she cradled Xander as the babe slept.
Kane took Terra into his lap his hands placed to gently pat until the youngster released her wind with a resounding burp, “I know before there was always something to deal with and now, we only need worry about our children and each other, my head is oddly empty these days,” he chuckled softly settling Terra against him.
It was in that moment there was knock upon their room door causing Kane to look up “Its open” as the door opened Aerian, Virra and Domi stepped through.
To the knock, Aishani covered herself up and stood to move over and gently settle Xander in the crib and moved to gather Terra to do the same. She turned and moved to settle at Kane’s side, her eye fixed on Aerian for a moment, clearly suspicious. “There is the troublesome trio…”
“Hey Aishani,” Aerian smiled though clearly avoiding the issue for the moment “We have something to tell you,” instinctively her hand found Virras entwining her fingers so as to gather strength from her fiancée, “That is to say Domi sort of, no we all do, argh this is harder than I thought,”
Aishani inclined a brow, glancing to the conjoined hands of Virra and Aerian, then shifted her gaze to Domi that moved to slip a hand within Aerian’s to remind her he was there to support her as well. “We all do,” Domi said in agreement.
She placed her own hands into Kane’s, looking to them expectantly.
“Dad, Aishani I’m pregnant,” Aerian felt the words tumble from her lips as the moment seemed to hold waiting on a response, Kane simply remained quiet looking at the trio now standing before him.
Aishani lowered her brow, remaining as silent as Kane now. But since he didn’t speak, she stood and moved to stand before Aerian. Then embraced her tightly, almost too tight. “I think it is best that you talk with your father. I think he’s stunned…” She whispered to her. “Congratulations.”
Aerian returned the embrace “Thank you,” before making her way to Kane she sat down in front of him as he remained quiet for the moment “Don’t be mad, please, I’m sorry,” her voice was now broken with emotion rarely shown by Aerian as the panic had begun to rise in the pit of her stomach.
Kane remained quiet for a few moments though the tone in his daughters voice was enough to cause him to look at her “Not mad Aerian, just .. a little confused, is all,” Kanes now moved to look to Domi, his gaze was not one of anger but steady enough for Domi to know he was under close watch for the moment.
Finally his gaze moved to Virra “And how are you finding all this? As odd as me? Are you Ok with how things are in all this?” Aerian smiled as ever her father had more concern for those around him than his own feelings, instinctively she threw her arms around him in a deep hug.
Aishani stepped back to move over in order to check on the sleeping twins, though, when finished she turned her attention back to Kane and Aerian, her golden eyes fixed on the situation before her. Virra rolled a shoulder passively, though, grinned. “I’m happy, granted this came as a surprise. Aerian with child is not only going to add to our family but I’m excited. We welcomed Domi, granted we may not have considered this without proper precautions…though part of us knew the chance.”
Domi remained silent, while appearing ready to defend himself should Kane loose it.
“And you, my love?” Aishani moved to settle at Kane’s side, gathering his hand in hers. “Enough of everyone elses feelings, bring your own forth. I believe that is what they want to hear, especially, our daughter.”
“I’m proud of you all, and if this is the next step in your relationship then as ever I am behind you. I have no reason to question any of you, you laid your lives on the line for this family and now you help ensure it’s future how could a father be any prouder, yes it’s a surprise but one I am indeed happy with,” Kane stated with a smile, Aerian felt her resolve break and launched into her father, Kane wrapped his arms around her with a smile “It’s a lot to take in, but I am always proud of you Aerian, just so long as you watch over her, protect as I would, nothing more nothing less,”
Virra grinned, as Domi stepped forward now. “You have no reason to be concerned, Kane. I will look after Aerian and the unborn child, he is after all my son and part of this legacy.” Though, as he spoke those words, the grin from Virra dimmed a slight with a flicker of sadness in her gaze, she slipped out of the room when Domi moved to stand behind Aerian.
Aishani caught this movement and then moved to lightly place a hand upon Aerian’s shoulder with a squeeze and tipped her chin to the door that just barely closed behind Virra. “I think the three of you may need to talk…if not, just the two of you.”
Domi glanced behind him and made a move to follow after Virra, then hesitated at the placement of Aishani’s hand on his shoulder. “It has just been the two of them, until you arrived. Let her be for now, though, I suggest that the three of you sit and talk. No sense in dimming down this happy time.”
“You should go talk, we’ll still be here,” Kane smiled softly “Don’t lose her in all of this she needs you as much as you need her,”
“I know,” Aerian spoke barely above a whisper as she extracted herself from her fathers embrace “I’m going to go talk to her, Domi can you go see there’s anything Stacy can do to ease this damn nausea?”
“I thought she was happy.” Domi said looking back to Aerian. “Uh…yeah, sure. I’ll meet you back at the cottage.” He moved to give her a gentle kiss, then turned and left.
Aishani sat down beside Kane, curling her hand within his. “Go on. We will be here if you need us.”
Aerian drew her hands around her waist and headed off to find Virra, quickly tracing the path asking guards if they had seen before she finally was coming up behind “Baby, what … I thought, I’m sorry,” she stammered slowly
Virra was sitting on the edge of the fountain, sharpening her dagger with a whetstone, though, looked to Aerian and stopped. “You have nothing to apologize for…I just, it’s not that I am not happy, because, I am. It’s just…I’m jealous, I guess. No, not jealous envious that you are pregnant. I’ve gotten used to sharing everything with you and this…I can’t do. Domi probably didn’t realize it but…when he said that the unborn was his son…” She sighed stowing away the dagger and then whetstone, rising to face Aerian and wrap her arms around her. “Is that just the stupidest thing you have ever heard?”
“Well he is assuming it’s a boy,” Aerian smiled softly now sitting beside Virra “But even with Domi around I’m not doing this without you by my side,”
Aerian took Virras hand gently “You are joined with me so you will feel all this just as much as me, but you could, we could have two babies you know,”
Virra curled her fingers within hers and lifted the knuckles to be graced by her lips in a flitter of kisses, then stopped to look at her. “I know I will…wait, what do you mean, two babies?”
Aerian curled her fingers then walked them over Virras thigh and up along her stomach “We could if you wanted, I mean none of us has exactly been safe while Domi has had his way with us, we already have our own little family and having a child with you is more than I could ask for,”
Virra watched Aerian for a long moment in silence, catching her hand in a strong hold and then relaxed. “No, we haven’t been safe, perhaps, I wanted this to happen for us. Firefly, I’m not sure you understand. I wanted to take that journey with you…I know it is stupid, but, I wanted to be pregnant with you and not just have symptoms. Listen to me, this is your time, not mine. I’m sure my own will come.” She lifted a hand to caress her cheek with a small smirk. “You are the beacon in the night to me.”
“Maybe you already are and it just hasn’t shown yet?” Aerian replied gently with a smile leaning against her “But you really need to talk to Domi he actually looked hurt when you left us, he really does love you and from what I’ve seen he has for some time, you are my life, you are my rock and you are my anchor to the chaos that surrounds us. I can’t do this without you but I don’t want to do it without him either,”
Virra wrapped an arm around Aerian, pulling her closer against her, propping her chin on the fiery crown. “Yeah, right. I hardly think that I am pregnant. I haven’t had morning sickness, like you. The only way would be to confirm with Stacy, if I am or not. Domi? Hurt?” She inhaled deeply, caressing Aerian’s side. “Hmm, it is so different to hear you say that you want him around still, while I don’t mind in the slightest. He balances us out…I told you, Firefly, that I am here for the long run and I have no intention of going anyplace, because, my place is at your side. Do you think we should? Go see, Stacy, I mean?”
“He is a great cook, and he watches our back, I sent Domi to see if Stacy could do anything for this damn nausea, so we can go join him,” Aerian rested her head on Virras chest for a few moments “No matter what you still need to talk to him, it has to be weird for him too, though he does have two girlfriends both who have no problem pleasing him,” she chuckled softly “I love you, that hasn’t and will not change, and it’s you I’m going to marry, I was thinking the old family home of Grandma in town is still vacant, Dad owns the land so maybe he would let us have it? It’s bigger than the cottage but not as grand as the Mansion,”
Virra titled her head and looked down to Aerian, losing her fiery crown. “Yes, that would do. That way we won’t be far. But aren’t you upset that our plans for the meantime of picking up work have changed?” She stood now, then extended her hand to Aerian, walking with her back to the mansion.
“Kind of comes with territory, seems every time we plan one thing the realm kicks us onto another path, besides I can work for now,” As they walked Aerian felt content stepping closer to Virra as they made their way up to Stacys room.
They knocked and Stacy answered inviting them in, Domi was sat in the window seat as Stacy watched her a moment “Are you feeling better Aerian?”
“Queasy, but OK, did Domi ask you?” Aerian replied
“He did, I can assemble something to ease it, but beyond that you’re stuck with it for now unless Domi has something in his cooking arsenal?” Stacy replied throwing Domi a gentle glance before she looked back to Virra.
Domi at the appearance of straightened at the appearance of Aerian, perked a slight, though, reclined back at the sight of Virra and turned his gaze out the window. But, when Stacy spoke, he looked back to Aerian. “Yeah, I might be able to whip something up. But, I think Jade may be able to help with her teas as well,”
Virra looked to Stacy now, while moving to her. “I haven’t felt strange…or anything, but, uh, do you sense anything about me?”
Stacy inclined a brow as she looked her over for a moment before looking to Domi in thought the back to Virra “I think Domi is going to be a very busy man, when did last have you’re .. or have you just out its non-appearance down to stress? Not all pregnancies follow the same path, each is unique,”
Aerian felt a glow spread through her before she watched Domi taking Virras hand and leading her to Domi, then taking Domis and placing it on Virras stomach gently “Did you hear that Domi? Your girls are both having your babies,”
“You are both indeed with child, and from the auras around a similar point, both having a single child anything beyond that is hard to tell for the moment, when the auras colour we will know what each childs sex will be, I would suggest you all go home and talk properly, I will speak with Jade on tea to help you both along, just remember Aerian cannot tap her angelic side for any reason,” There was a strength to the final words from Stacy “And of course congratulations,”
Virra stared at Stacy, then a smile grew on her lips. “Well, it’s been stressful for all of us recently.” Domi appeared to be as stunned as Virra though turned from his recline to face the interior of the room. When his hand was lifted, the palm pressed against her flat stomach, they locked their gaze for a moment together in silence. “Uh…yeah, I think we should go home.”
“Right, I trust Aerian to not use her angelic abilities but always we will ensure such.” Domi said, rising and moving to kiss Virra deeply and then to Aerian, lacing his hands into each woman’s then walking from the room with them in tow.
As they entered cottage Aerian turned on Virra kissing her with as much depth and passion as she ever had in her life “You got your wish baby, we both did,” She turned to face Domi “Two pregnant women I think your life is about to get a whole lot more interesting, I almost can’t wait!!”
Virra responded to the depth of the kiss, it was almost as though the tension melted between them that only a short time earlier had tightened around them, she squeezed her behind with a lift and then a playful smack. Though, turned to face Domi with a smirk, yet, lowered her gaze. “Yeah, sorry about that. When Aerian was pregnant, I felt..left out and wanted to share this experience with her. But, now, we are both with kidos.”
Domi groaned. “Great two crazy pregnant women…oh, what will I do?” He moved over and swept Aerian in his arms, shoving her against the closed door to kiss her with a breath-taking emotion and pressure. Then turned to face Virra and stepped up, to her, grasping her wrist to pull her over and press his lips against hers while extending his other back to grasp Aerian’s hand to bring her forward to stand at Virra’s side. Kneeling down, then lifting up their tops to kiss each stomach with a loving caress. “I could just be the luckiest man in Everlands, my two beautiful angels are going to give birth to the perfect children.”
“It is going to be fun, we’re going to get all fat and miserable together,” Aerian giggled as she felt her body shudder to Domis’ kiss, Aerian turned as Domi broke the kiss from Virra, Aerian leant in to take his place “And you get to love our children as much as you care for us,” Aerian was careful with her words now, she knew he cared for them but love in a three way relationship was always going to be a complex thing to handle. She also never for a moment wanted to hurt Virra in any way as she thought she had earlier that day.
Domi looked from Aerian to Virra for a moment, then smirked and stood, offering a hand to Aerian in order for her to rise as well. He swept each woman in his arms, Virra leaned a cheek on his shoulder and placed a hand on his chest with a look up to him then to Aerian. “I love you both, I know I can be a pain but nothing ever changes that fact. This will only bring us closer, though, I will apologize now for my attitude later on.”
He nodded to her seeming pleased, kissing her forehead and squeezing Aerian’s behind. “It’s permanent birth control…but, I honestly have been curious what breast milk tastes like. It must be ambrosial with the two of you.”
“Oh your just going to become a bigger pervert than you already are aren’t you? But I’m willing to share, as long as you keep us both very happy, that’s the rule you keep us happy and we will satisfy anything and everything you want,” Aerians words were full of intent as she watched Virra for a moment “And you have nothing to apologise for, not now not ever, I love both of you as well and our family will only get stronger if we stick together,”
“Well, it’s not much a difference. Only I do know that pregnant women are more horny then otherwise.” Domi wriggled his brows, as Virra laughed. “Don’t you worry, my beautiful angels. You are my women and I love each of you, I will take care of you both.”
Virra winked to Aerian, then tackled her, pinning her to the door and her fingers working to find that sweet ticklish spot, urging Domi to join in the fun. Soon, it was the three of them laughing and turned into a small tickle war, which ended up with them laying on their backs out of breath on the floor.
