"Oh" She said, going over to a gem that had every color reflecting from it, yet it was as colorless itself as a true diamond. "This is lovely, what is it called?"
Kyra blushed and dipped her head, letting him pull the grass out. "thank you" She said when he had finished. This was so much better than what she had known before that she wasn't sure what to do now.
Skylar grinned and went over to Jaxon to sit with him. She didn't know what Garth said, missing his gesture as she looked to Jaxon's hand. "I've never seen that before myself, but I had heard about it." She said softly.
Ember looked to Garth, frowning inside when Wrath gave such a dark smile. She suddenly felt uneasy and fluffed her feathers up as she looked from one to the other before shifting back to talk. "The 'price' is friendship." She replied then glanced to Garth then to Chaos again. "For most that is not a real price at all, but that is what we take as payment.Where is your wolf guide?"
Anna chuckled and nodded then glanced over to the screens at movement in the garage "That's the dye, I'll go get it" She said then got up and gave him a kiss before heading out, checking her gun before she reached the elevator.
Rosie pulled out her phone to check it and sent a text out then put it away again, looking back to him "We should get you back, don't want to stress you too much" She said and started gathering the plates. She could tell he had gotten caught in her paranoia also, so this was an end to this trip's calmness anyway, even if it was nothing
Ibis shifted to her true fey form. She said in a small voice, " We call it the Millennium stone. For that's how long it takes to mature. It harnesses the spectrum of the rainbow in it's crystalline depths. I see you truly have a love for the stones. I had to be sure. I'm Ibis, the guardian of this cavern."
Falkirk turned to Ibis and bowed. "Greetings, Ibis. I'm sorry to intrude. I was unaware that we were trespassing. I have only heard tale of this wondrous cave and wanted to see it for myself. My lovely companion is Star and myself, I'm Falkirk. And the Sylph, is Spyro." He said with respect.
"I know this Sylph. I knew you ment no harm. But yet I was cautious anyway. I don't socialize very much, so there is also that. It is very nice to meet both of you. But it would seem I know of your name, Falkirk. For you are the tree of life's caretaker. The sole harvester of the sacred leaves. It is a high honor to have you here." She said softly then curtsied low.
Falkirk made a dismissing gesture. He really wasn't a fan of titles. He returned his gaze to Star and smiled pleasantly. "Do they have that stone on earth?" He asked curiously.
"Earth? Is that where she's from?" Ibis asked excitedly.
Graydon gasped and looked to Kyra. "The jerky! I completely forgot to check it when I was out getting grass." He said in distress.
"It has the most amazing healing powers. I felt it go through me. Thank you for this, I....." Jaxon trailed off, as the mood of the room reached him.
Orson stood closer to Cadeon and Bob. He wasn't liking the vibe he was getting from Chaos. He could see auras and that one's just went off the grid black.
Chaos smiled once again, this time directly at Ember. "My wolf guides passed the buck. They took my handler off and didn't bother entering the portal. They must have figured one small she wolf was enough to control me. Well, I did play at being quite meek." He explained dispassionately. He looked to Cadeon and Bob speculatively, before he looked back at Ember. All pretense dropped as he said, " let me repeat, because you missunderstood me. I said,' What is your payment for such a gift.' Not my cost, but yours. Do you want the baby Phoenix or the lynx? Because like I said, It always costs you in the end." He then shifted to a smaller version of his six headed dragon. Each head keenly focused on an occupants of the room. Ready to strike with lethal force. If they so much as moved wrong.
Zypher nodded and then watched Anna leaving on the video monitor. He had an uncontrollable urge to follow after her. But he made himself stay put. She could handle herself. He couldn't smother her, for heaven's sake. She was an alpha. Zypher looked up as Nashton stepped back into the office. He chuckled as he saw the large round hickey on his neck. "Well, that went better than I was expecting. " He teased mildly.
Nashton cleared his throat and admitted, "Yeah, that's not from what you think. The super sucker was not Taylor. Ummm, it was from your vacuum. She was mad that I didn't think she could take the truth. She then said that I really sucked, just like your Dyson. She then gave me a demonstration of said sucking. But in the end, we made up. So all in all. A win, win." Nashton then grinned from ear to ear, as he went and sat beside Zypher.
"Son, that girl is dynamite. The moment you don't respect it, it kills you." Zypher said with barely controlled laughter.
Nashton smiled and nodded, " That's why I love her. She makes me feel alive." He said with conviction.
"I know just what you mean, son." Zypher said as he looked to the monitor again at Anna.
Ericsson was upset that their picnic was ruined because of his suspicious mind. "I'm so sorry, Rosie. It was perfectly planned. Everything was perfect, expecially the food. I'm just not over my.... you know.. my paranoia of being watched. My uncle was CIA. He never got over it, mainly because they never stopped watching him." He said as an attempt at humor.
Markus shook his head as he saw that they were packing up. "Now! Move in now!"
Daniel gave the hand signals to go. They advanced on the clearing guns at the ready. Stun rounds only, as ordered. But only to use them as a last resort.
Ericsson looked all around as they were swarmed. "Or, not paranoia. " He said with a sickening feel in his stomach. Maybe he could draw their fire and give Rosie time to escape. He got to his feet and said, "Run! Get out if here! Don't let them get you. I couldn't live, knowing he got ahold of you, Rosie. Please go!"Edited by NickyKnack - 4/26/16 at 5:28am
