Upon Vestia: Chapter Seventeen

Post by Kooshie on Mon Mar 27, 2017 12:45 pm

First topic message reminder :

Kay always tried so hard to be sensible and pragmatic. Asher had always loved that about him, and he loved it just as much now. He smiled softly. "No, you're definitely not alone in this."
He wasn't going to leave Kay to look after this little dragon alone. He'd gotten the guy into this situation, so now it was his job to do everything he could to help. Did that make him the other father here? Maybe. This was thoroughly confusing and he was going to need to think it over at some point. "If it wasn't already obvious, I'm here for you. Both of you," he said.

~~
Tala snorted weakly. "I do not like that butterfly well." She let Shane help her.

"One day at a time, yes," Asher said quietly. He hated seeing Kay like this, knowing there was really nothing he could say or do that would help. It was depressing to be reminded just how much misery Kay had been through, and how it still weighed him down so heavily. "Focus on the present. Right now there's a baby dragon who's asleep. She's with Starr, and she's healthy and cared for. You're here, with me, on a ship full of people who will be glad to help in any way they can. You have coffee, and nowhere specific to be right now. If you need to take your mind off this problem for a while, we can find something to distract you with. The baby is safe, what matters right now is you, and whatever you need to start coping with this."

Kay smiled softly. Yeah, she was safe. He should feel good about that shouldn't he? So why did he feel like the choice to intervene had irreparably screwed the poor kid's life up. Eugh.
He leaned into Asher and exhaled deeply. One day at a time, one step...

Asher hugged Kay tightly, well, tightly-ish. He went quiet. He didn't have much to say that wouldn't be pointless repetition.

Kay closed his eyes and just stayed like that for a while, grateful that Asher was here with him right now. Good sensible Asher, who for all his flaws could be counted on to be rational and understanding.

Asher would stay there with Kay as long as Kay wanted him to, thinking the situation over on his own, and not reaching any specific conclusions. It was tough and confusing, and although he didn't specifically object to helping to raise kids, there were too many unanswered questions right now for him to decide how he felt about the situation. All he knew was that Kay needed him, and probably Starr and the babies needed him, nothing more was clear.
He could help them. That was doable.
Probably.

Kay finally pulled away to finish his drink. [Thank you.] He smiled weakly at Asher.

Kay looked thoughtful. He liked the idea of a distraction. The butterfly was caught, that danger was over. the dragons were sleeping. [We should maybe go back to that walk we intended to have earlier.] Damn, they'd never gotten around to that had they?

"Oh yes, we were going to go for a walk. I'd completely forgotten," Asher said. Or he'd temporarily ignored that information which was sort of like forgetting, anyway. "We should do that."

Kay picked up the mug again to put it away, nodding to Asher as he stood. A walk was always good to clear one's head, supposedly.

Asher got up to follow Kay. "You want to choose the direction, or should I?" he asked.

[I don't much want to think right now.] Kay admitted, but he held up the mug. [Have to put this back first though.]

Asher nodded. "Fair enough. I'll pick then." He'd been getting a lot of practice choosing lately. He supposed it was probably good mental exercise for him or something, but he sure didn't like what it meant about Kay's mental state. He followed Kay to drop off the mug.

After dropping the mug off so it could be washed, Kay looked back to Asher and indicated he lead the way.

Asher thought over the options briefly, then lead the way to a teleporter which could take them to a random floor. This floor was some sort of unfinished park, with empty areas where dirt and plants would have been if it had ever been developed, and water features with no water in them. It was kind of bizarre.

Kay looked around. [We should get Ellie and Matt in here.] It was kind of spooky. [Liven the place up a bit... ] He wandered over to peer into an empty water feature.

"Yes we should," Asher agreed. "With some flowers and water and trees, this place could be beautiful." He looked around, interested, "I had no idea this place was here."

[It is pretty surreal to imagine a fully functional park on a space ship. I wonder what other hidden half finished things there are scattered around, and how much Vestia herself even remembers]

"On a ship this big, I suppose the normal constraints don't apply and she can grow whatever she wants." Asher trailed his fingers over the wall and wandered farther into the room. "She must have so many areas like this just waiting to be discovered. We'll probably be finding them for years to come."

Kay nodded. [You could hide whole civilisations down here.] He looked up. Vestia was huge enough to have her own atmosphere in here, and deep enough soil for roots to actually find purchase. [We should tell Ellie, she'd love to plant all this up i'm sure. ]

"I'm almost scared to see what she'd do with this much space," Asher said, smiling. "She'd love it though, it'd be a great place to practice her magic." He admired the design of the place, it had support beams and drains and places for irrigation to be installed, but it was still incredibly open. The lighting was tuned to a natural sunlight spectrum too, and as long as you didn't look up at the ceiling it felt oddly like a sunny day on a strange metal planet.

It was very weird, but also Kay could imagine it could be a very pleasant space if it were finished. A little bit of planet out in space. Real planet, rather than holographic.
Breathing real air might be good for people too.
[What floor are we on?] He asked, looking around for any way to orientate themselves.

"Sixty-four," Asher said. "Kind of far from the main deck. Thank goodness for teleporters."

Kay nodded and made a note of that on the tablet. They really did need a map, a proper map. The ones on the welcome pamphlets had been pretty vague, probably because when they were printed Vestia was still growing so much and things like this were still unfinished and out of commission.

"We really do need a better map, don't we?" Asher said, guessing what Kay was thinking. "So little of this stuff is on there."

Kay nodded. [There's just so many floors to map. Still, it could be useful to at least have a sort of abstract concept of what there was and approximately where. Do you think Vestia could help with that?] She must know where things were didn't she? Or could be reminded.

"Some sort of list of floors, and what's on each one, at least," Asher said thoughtfully. "I'm sure she could help, she must remember most of what's here."
