Months have passed since then... Nicole sighed softly as she wiped her forehead... She had just finished some gardening... ever since the attack, Nick had been training to control his powers, she was worried about her son... wondering if he would be okay... Nick laid on his back, breathing in deeply as he tried to catch his breath. Not sure what he could do to master his powers.
Taking a deep breath, Roka nuzzled her gently as he kissed her. Staring at her gently, he said "you hungry?" He tilted his head, knowing that she would have to eat since she is eating for three...
xxMiyuki stayed locked in her room for most of the time Nick was training. She didn't sleep for that time, and when she did, she feared she would be taken back to the slave shop. She was physically weak and couldn't manage to stand without needing a seat almost instantly. She let out a quiet sigh and curled up in a ball on her bed. Gabriel walked over to his son and smiled at him. "Looks like you need help." he said to him as he sat down next to him. "You're training your body, but you need to train your mind. Look deep within yourself and wrangle your powers into check." he said to him, and for a demonstration, he sat Indian style, his hands balled into fists and he brought them to rest in front of him, his knuckles touching. His breathing slowed, until finally there was no breathing to be heard. After a few minutes, he opened his eyes and looked at him, a sense of calm in them. "When you do this, you walk along the thin line of death. Always do this with someone with you." he said to him before he ruffled his hair and smiled at him.
nick nodded and started to do what his father had told him. Though, he had opened one eye as he said "so... any luck on having another kid with mom? Huh? Did ya Dad?" Nick asked, wondering if he'd have a brother or sister on the way yet.
Smiling at her, Roka got up and went to make amaryllis's favourite meal. Once it was done, he walked back into the living room and sat with her and handed her a tray before eating his own meal.
Nodding, Nick closed his other eye and did what his father had said that would help him master his powers. Nicole walked over to Gabriel and wrapped her arms around his waist from behind and nuzzled his back.
Chuckling, Roka kissed her cheek and ate as he watched some movies on tv.
giving a smile at Gabriel, Nicole whispered "how's his training?" She didn't know if Nick could hear her or not, but didn't want to risk it with her loud voice.
Staring at her with a smile, Roka asked "want desert? He tilted his head to the side, ears twitching quickly as he wondered what kind of desert she would want, that is, if she wanted any in the first place.
Nicole couldn't help but smile. Least he was doing okay in his training. Kissing Gabriel's cheek she couldn't help but smile at him. Nick grunted, like he was in pain.
Laughing, Roka kissed her forehead and went to get her some cheese cake. Walking back with a big slice, he said "hope you like it." He chuckled and sat next to her, handing amaryllis a piece of cheesecake.
Nick's eyes snapped open before he fell over. "Ugh... why does it have to be so hard..." he groaned. "Nothing is easy Nick." Nicole calmly said. Nick just sighed before getting up and going to check on Miyuki.
Stretching, Roka finished his own desert and took Amaryllis's plate when she was done and sat back down with her after putting the plates in the sink. "So, wanna go to bed or watch another movie?"
