Upon Vestia: Chapter Twenty-Nine

Post by flying_purple_monkfish on Wed Mar 21, 2018 6:47 pm

First topic message reminder :

Ivor was pretty thankful for Tala's quiet thoughts, if her unshielded thoughts were anything like her speaking voice, he'd have had a headache already.
He nodded slowly.

Asher glanced up at Kay, smiling a little. He appreciated the gesture, and was glad they were spending this time together, even if the stress made it less pleasant. Ah well, at least they were here together for now.

He led the way into the city.
(To the city)

"I should move my stuff out of my room, since I'm not coming along," James said. "I don't want you guys taking all my clothes and stuff with you when you leave."

Rigel chuckled again and nodded. "Dawn is packing to come along now. Good thing we have enough rooms on Vestia for all of us to have a room on each ship."

"Yeah, it's great having two ships available to us," James said. "I still haven't claimed a room on Vestia, I guess I should do that." He'd always felt too guilty to move while Acus was here, and now Acus was gone, he kind of still felt like he should stay with the ship because that was where he was supposed to be. Yay, guilt. He looked from Rigel to Nova and back, "Do you guys wanna help me pack? Shouldn't take long though."

"If you want my help, I will be happy to help you." Nova said with a smile.

Rigel chuckled and shrugged. "Three might be too many in your room

"Yeah, it is a pretty small room if three people are in there," James agreed. "Come on Nova, let's pack some stuff." He liked her, so of course he was going to enlist her help.

James paused to grab some cardboard boxes from a cabinet, thejn led the way to his room.

James's room was mostly empty, other than a few books and trinkets on a shelf (including a very battered-looking copy of I, Robot by Isaac Asimov), some clothes strewn haphazardly on the floor, a few boxes of repair supplies, and a couple posters featuring killer robots on the wall. He set to work throwing stuff into a box.

"Just toss stuff in. If it looks super fragile, toss it gently," he told Nova. "Thanks for helping." He grinned.

Nova moved to put the books in a box neatly and quickly. She didn't see any point to making it messy. "I'm happy to help. What is that book?" She asked, holding the IRobot one up.

"It's an old Terran classic, from the author who invented the Three Laws of Robotics. That book is an entire collection of stories devoted to explaining how those Three Laws would work. Groundbreaking stuff. Robots hate it," James explained. He shoved some clothes into a box. "Although supposedly Asimov was kind of a cool dude for his time, he probably would have been pretty bummed to find out his idea was being used to control sentient people." He nodded sagely.

"I will have to get a copy and read it" Nova said as she put the book in the box along with whatever else she could get in there.

"You can probably get a copy from Vestia's library. The librarian there might look like he hates you, but don't worry about it, that's just his face," James said. "He's actually kind of accommodating, and would probably let you borrow any books you want for your trip." He started rolling up his posters, all in one roll instead of individually, because he was lazy.

"I will look into that" Nova said agreeably then looked around to see if there was anything personal left here.

James shoved a last couple of socks into a box. "Okay, we can haul these down to the cargo bay, and then to whatever room Vestia assigns me. You don't have to if you don't want to, of course." He smiled.

Nova smiled then shrugged "I do not mind and I like helping." She said, lifting the box easily and turning to head out.

James smiled at Nova. "Well thank goodness for that. I hate work." Together they'd haul all the boxes first to the cargo bay, then off to James's new room.

"That's okay, I'll set things up sometime this week. It'll be a nice project for when I'm not on doctor duty," James said. He smiled at Nova, "Seriously though, I'm so grateful that you're looking out for my brother. And I'm also grateful for you helping me move. You didn't have to, but it's awesome that you did."

Nova smiled and dipped her head "It was my pleasure." She said softly "I will watch out for the prince. He will be a good prince for our people, and possibly for your people, if you go to that form of government."

"Prince?" James blinked. "Wait, he actually is a prince? I mean I joked about it to him and Kay when I suggested he should have a star dragon bodyguard for this trip, but I didn't think he actually had a title."

"Starr took him as her son, as she is our queen, any child she has is a prince or princess. It is the same for the three little ones she adopted and hatched here. Even Kay has an honorary title since he is Asher's mate and Danika's 'father'." Nova explained

"That's awesome," James said. "It's just like Cinderella! Only with more dragons, and instead of marrying the handsome prince, my brother is the handsome prince." James had a deep love for Cinderella stories, they'd given him something to daydream about back when he thought he'd never escape his horrible life. "Man, you guys have a surprising number of princes and princesses," he added.

Nova chuckled at that and nodded "Yes, we do, but that is good. We are also picking out those that can take the other leadership positions from those who are free now."

James nodded. "That makes sense. What sort of leaders are you guys choosing? I know barely anything about monarchies, except for the dramatized versions they have in movies," he said. "Are you going to be a captain of the guard or something? Is that a thing?" Hey, he had no idea, and he was curious.

"It is a position, but I do not know if I will get such a title. If we go by genetic lines, then I would inherit my parent's title and be a Lady." Nova said then shrugged. "We have to fill all the positions that have become vacant, from the Dukes and Duchesses down to city mayors. Of course those last have to wait until we have cities again."

"You were royal to begin with?"James looked impressed. It was fun to be surrounded by royalty, in his opinion. "Man, hiring people to rebuild an empire sounds hard."

Nova nodded "Yes, I was hatched before my family was taken. Luckily I was old enough then to understand and learn from them before we were separated. Having the mind link is helpful in choosing who is to take over the positions, and who just wants to be farmers or guards."

James smiled. "You guys are kinda like a hive mind, that must make it a lot easier to cooperate and pick new staff. I guess you fight less cause of that?"
He smiled a bit, "If Swarm goes along on the Silver Devil, you should compare notes on being telepathically linked. You guys are kinda similar that way." He hoped calling the dragons a hive mind wasn't offensive.
