Zypher was listening to Anna, when an explosion sounded at the doorway. He covered his head to protect it. (Did it open the door? You can run front for awhile, if you want. I like following your lead.
Cadeon stayed low on Aurora's back. He was very concerned about Ember. He didn't know where she had gone to. He had a sickening feeling, something bad had happened.
Daphne smiled knowingly at Star and shook her head. "We are childhood friends, there is nothing more there. Fear not. Besides, Falkirk only had eyes for you, Princess Star. He has in a sense, came alive since you have arrived home." She explained simply.
Falkirk blushed slightly at Daphne's reveal. "I...Um" his words failed him.
Sergio looked down at her hands and slowly walked to the bed and sat down. "So you're not mad at being stuck with me? I'll try to provide for you and prove to be worth the trouble. " She said softly, as she glanced up at Jackie.
Ember nodded and turned to make sure the flames would be out before she would go in. The last thing they needed was a stray ember to set the house on fire.
Anna looked up after a moment to see the welcome sight of light through the door, but there wasn't enough of it. Frowning, she got to her knees then nearly groaned before she went to the door. Despite the blast, the door still stood in it's place, only it would never rise back into it's slot again. The door had broken at the top, creating a vent to the fresh air outside, but still blocking the way out.
Jason couldn't take any more time to go back for any more grenades or anything else as the soldiers opened fire on the three. He jumped up to Aurora's back, shooting at the men to pin them down "We must fall back for now" He said, worry clear in his voice as he looked back again.
Star blushed and dipped her head, unable to meet the other fey's eyes for the moment. She would seek out Daphne at a later time to ask the questions she now had, but for now she would hold back the question of what that feeling was. It had been so alien to her nature that she didn't understand it at all, though she knew it was all connected somehow. But now she felt it again, though not as sharply and again pushed it away then wondered if she had even ever had any childhood friends before.
"Why would I be mad?" Jackie asked and reached over to take her hands in her own "After the blood moon, I can give you back to him, and holding you to my soul until then is no hardship." She paused a moment then tilted her head a little "I dare say you would be the only living being to know how old I truly am now. My family has long worked alongside magical beings of every kind. Once, very far back in even our history, a dragon Queen granted my family the lifespan of the fey though we remain human in every other way. I was surprised your oilin didn't inquire further when I told him my grandmother was the one to take his kind away from this realm."
