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.

Kay tensed, then nodded. There was that rising panic again. He chewed his lip and reached for his tablet so Asher could be included in the conversation. it felt rude otherwise. [Honestly starr, I don't even know where to start.] He admitted. He looked pretty flustered.

Starr reached over to Pat his shoulder gently. "Dragons are among the easiest babies to raise. They learn fast, they should be able to glide before a month of age, they learn to speak quickly also since they are telepathic and learn directly from their parents."

Kay nodded slowly. It was just such a huge responsibility and he'd had zero time to prepare. Usually parents had months to get used to the idea, not minutes. [So what do we do now?] He asked.

"It's still a daunting task," Asher said softly. "We can do it, but it's difficult to even start imagining doing. It's very unexpected." He looked at Starr uncertainly, "What does imprinting mean exactly? What will the baby need? Can she be away from Kay for significant amounts of time?" Kay was going to need space, as much as he could get, he was sure of that.

Kay chewed his lip harder at Asher's questions. They were all things they needed to know, but he was almost too scared to know the answer.

Starr smiled again and shrugged. "They have been speaking to me, in emotions which is all they can process. She will likely think of you as her father and me as her mother until she is old enough to be told different.  For now, she can stay with the other two, though you will have to come by and see her occasionally so she doesn't feel rejected." She said and looked to Asher "Imprinting means that the baby sees you as their parent, both to sight and in mind to mind contact."

[Well there's an awkward family situation.] Kay forced a smile. It was a relief she could stay here with her clutch mates though, she could no doubt learn much more from other dragons than him right now.

Asher looked slightly amused. Yes, this family was very, very confusing, wasn't it? Occasional visits? That was doable. Maybe Kay would be able to get used to this idea rather than being thrown in all at once.

Starr laughed and nodded. "Yes, it does make for a bit of awkwardness, but nothing we can't get past. I am here for any questions you have. You are not going to go through this alone."

Kay smiled softly at the two of them. [Thank you.] He looked to the baby dragon sleeping so soundly. She'd need a name.

Starr also looked to the new baby and smiled. "She has unusual markings. I have never heard of a star dragon with lines on them before."

Asher looked down at the baby he was still holding, following the others' gaze. Aww, so cute. "I suppose you should have a look at her?" He asked Starr.

Starr smiled and came over to touch the baby, running her finger over her head. "She wanted to surprise us."

[really?] Kay frowned, that was odd. He'd just assumed they all had different markings. [Have you any idea who their biological parents were?] He shook his head. [Maybe she just wanted a nice dramatic entrance.]

"The markings are different" Starr said and motioned to the boy. "He looks more like a black hole, but that is still a 'natural' star pattern, lines are not. I don't know the parents, just that they were dead and the babies orphans. None are closely related to one another."

Kay looked thoughtful. [Maybe there's some other bloodline in there. Dragons seem to be cross fertile with multiple species after all.] He mused.

Starr nodded then shrugged "That is possible. " She agreed "Still, it is an odd marking, but at least we can tell them all apart."

Kay nodded. He just hoped her wing would heal nicely. Poor kid. There was no way he was teaching her to fly either. No way.

Asher laughed. "I'm sure we could tell them apart even if they looked exactly the same." He petted the little dragon's good wing gently.

[You do get somewhat used to it. Believe me.] Hey, he had brothers who were identical twins, and was dating a guy who now had an identical kinda twin. Man, too many twins.

The little girl stirred, resetting herself and going back to sleep.

Starr chuckled and nodded. "Yes, I am sure we could." She said gently.

[Thank you Starr.] Kay looked pretty worried, but having Starr here was at least a little reassuring. [I think... I need more coffee.] He managed a brief smile.

Asher laughed softly. "Getting out of here for a bit might be a good idea. Is the butterfly taken care of at least?"

"Sonata caught it," Vestia said.

"It was actually here in the ship?" Asher said. "Oh."

Kay's frown deepened. [Looks like you were right then Asher.] He shook his head. [Is everyone alright?] He asked Vestia.

"Tala got magicked by it, but she's okay now. Shane made sure she was all right," Vestia said.

Asher frowned. "I'd hoped I was just being paranoid."

Tala had things she regretted? Huh, go figure. Kay had assumed she was more a punch now, don't think about it ever sort of person.

He glanced back to Asher. [With our luck, paranoia's about our only defense.]

Asher nodded. That was worryingly true. "Well," he said, "Since the butterfly is caught, I guess we're free to go wherever. Starr, would you mind looking after the baby for a while?" They really needed a name for this girl soon, calling her 'the baby' on a ship full of babies just wasn't going to work.
