Thokk's Lands XVII

Far from the town there is a small coastal village.  It is quaint and unremarkable save for a single thing.  Over looking the village is a magnificently large castle on a hill.  These are Thokk's lands.

At least they were.  Currently the castle and surrounding fields are controlled by Nadine and her kids.

Nadine and Elyea live here.  They're rather sweet.

Somewhere around here Dei and Jeska live in sin with a teenager.  Good for them.
Obscurejones

Nadine smiles as Rabbit takes her hand and seems to relax a little.
Who

He rubs a finger gently over her knuckle as they walk.

"Where we going?"
Obscurejones

Your call.
Who

"Um..."

He shrugs, just keeping walking.
Obscurejones

Nadine keeps walking as well, gives his hand a little squeeze.
Who

He smiles at her a little dopeyly, a single ear giving a twitch. He stops in front of a door and opens it. He's got no idea what's behind it.
Obscurejones

Did we ever work out if he sleeps in the same room as Nadine and Elyea?
Who

I believe he sleeps in an adjoining room.
Obscurejones

Then that's what the door opens into.
Who

Rabbit seems a little surprised, how'd they get here?

"Oh, I guess this is me then."
Obscurejones

Nadine nods and waits by the doorway for a moment.
Who

"I don't suppose you want to hang about for a while?"
Obscurejones

And do what?
Who

He shrugs after a moments thought.

"Talk? It's good to talk."
Obscurejones

She laughs softly and smiles at him.  It's a sweet, sad sort of smile.
You're a very nice boy Rabbit.
She closes the door and goes to sleep in her own room.
Who

He sighs and flops down on to his bed. He wanted talk...now he's going to have to just go to sleep.
Obscurejones

Nadine smiles in Rabbit's direction  wistfully and then goes to sleep.
Who

I had to look that word up yay for expanding vocabulary!

Anywho, come the morrow Nadine can sleep, Elyea's gone to bug Clark.
Obscurejones

Nadine sleeps in for a little while.  The castle eavesdrops on Elyea and Clark.
Who

Well there's lots of mumbling and grunting as Elyea tries to wake him. Then she yanks one of his ears and he's up like a shot. Elyea sits on top of him and stories are told!
Obscurejones

The castle listens with half an ear while it waits for Nadine to wake up.
Who

It's a story about the sun and the moon and how they ended up in the sky. I have literally no idea where he's getting these from.

---

Elsewhere Val begins to doze off, curled up on Jeska as she is.
Metakirb

Jeska tries to move her upstairs to the bed.
Who

As long as she doesn't have to move that'll be easy.
Metakirb

Jeska tucks her in and goes downstairs to wait for Dei.
Who

Val holds on to her as she tries to leave, not wanting her to go.
Metakirb

You're in a cuddly mood aren't you?
Who

She nods, holding on to her.

"Stay here?"
Metakirb

Until Dei comes home.

She lies next to her.
Who

She smiles happily and cuddles up to her. Quickly closing her eyes and snoring softly.
Metakirb

Jeska gently cuddles her.
Who

Downstairs the door opens and closes as Dei returns.

"Hello?"
Metakirb

Jeska heads down to him.
Who

He smiles as he sees her come down the stairs.

"Hey."
Metakirb

Hey. Val's asleep upstairs.
Who

Dei closes the space between them, putting his arms around her.

"Tired her out did you?"
Metakirb

No, she was in a cuddly mood and then went tired.

Jeska hugs him back.
Who

"Is she alright?"
Metakirb

She nods.
Who

"Good. Have a nice day?"

---

Doth Nadine still slumber?
Metakirb

Yep, did you?
Who

"Well it's better now I've got you."

He smiles, trying to lead her to a nearby chair.
Metakirb

She's led.
Who

Dei happily sits next to her, putting an arm round her and pulling her a little closer.
Metakirb

She hugs him back, resting her head against him.
Who

Assuming Nadine still slumbers she'll probably be woken two little hands shaking her and a panicked voice.

"Mummy!"
Obscurejones

Hurm?
Who

"Clark's gone!"
Obscurejones

Nadine yawns and gets up to check Rabbit's lunch.
Who

His lunch? He's not making any lunch...

"Turned in to Rabbit!"
Obscurejones

Room... I typed room... Hellos sleep dep, what are you doing here?

Oh... Did he turn into Rabbit, Rabbit?
Who

Rabbit nods frantically, Elyea drops him and steps back, eyeing him cautiously.
Obscurejones

Nadine laughs and shakes her head.
Alright it was a good run.  Do the back and forth a few times for her.
Who

He shakes his head, he can't. That's kind of the problem.

"Rabbit's moving!"
Obscurejones

Elyea, do me a favor and look away from Rabbit for a moment.
Who

She does so, not quite sure why. Rabbit shakes his head, no idea what he's supposed to do.
Obscurejones

Nadine frowns.
The guy you got the ability from.  He kicked it.
Who

Rabbit shakes a small pink fist at the heavens. He was enjoying being Clark and now even if he gets his body back the game's up.

"Can I turn around?"
Obscurejones

Nadine nods.
Yes.  Also, Rabbit can move.  Rabbit, do a backflip.
Who

Rabbit shakes his head, instead walking straight over to Elyea and offering a small plush hand to shake. She giggles and immediately scoops him up in to a big ol' hug.
Obscurejones

He totally could have done the back flip.
As she speaks Nadine reaches a hand behind her, pulling a book off a shelf at the same moment that the shelf slides into place along the wall.
Who

Elyea doesn't notice, filled with glee at the fact Rabbit is hugging back! She scurries off to her sporadically appearing dolls house she's totally got a little hat for him!
Obscurejones

Nadine smiles and turns her back on the happy pair.  Lifts her blindfold, wincing as she does so, and begins scanning the pages.
Who

Rabbit's got a tiny bonnet! Elyea's rocking him from side to side. What's Nadine reading?
Obscurejones

Kar Nadinson's briefly Illustrated Guide to Lesser Deities of the Outer Cosmologies.
Who

I see....well if she thinks it'll help. Rabbit's being fed an imaginary bottle, oh the indignity.
Obscurejones

She flips to the chapters on the Guardians and looks under "methods of contacting".
Who

There are rituals, most involve living sacrifice. One involves a bowl of water, 3 eggs and the right chant. It's all a matter of personal preference really.
Obscurejones

Bowl and Eggs it is.  She flips through the descriptions of the Guardians and settles on Azure.  Looks for how to summon a specific Guardian.
Who

It's all about the right chant, cracking the eggs just so and a lot of it is intent where Azure is involved. Oh and she'll have to go off and do some manner of good deed after the summoning.
Obscurejones

Easy peasy.  She grabs a bowl and some Eggs off the shelf and starts the chant.
Who

Just for a quick reference, she's still in the same room with Elyea?
Obscurejones

Nope.  Wall slid between them.
Who

Good then she wont be able to see the wind whipping up around her Mummy as a brown haired woman with a blindfold appears in front of her. She speaks in a loud bellowing voice that wont actually carry out of the room.

"Who desires to speak with the Guardian of Balance?!"
Obscurejones

Nadine, equally blindfolded, smiles.
I was wondering if you could help me with a contracting issue.  One of you had a deal with a friend of mine and it seems to have lapsed.
Who

Her voice returns to normal seeing as how she wasn't phased by it at all.

"Which of my siblings do you speak of?"
Obscurejones

I think his name was Firiat.  I couldn't find him in my books.
Who

"Ah yes, his demise would have defaulted any mortal deals, that is being righted as we speak."
Obscurejones

A mirror slides into place and shows Nadine her and Elyea's room.
Who

It'll show Elyea sitting on Clark's knee as he regales her with some manner of tale. He's back!
Obscurejones

Well that's nice.  Sorry to have bothered you miss...
She checks the book.
Azure.
Who

"Not at all."

With a kind smile she begins to fade out of the room.
Obscurejones

Nadine waves goodbye and heads back to her room.
Who

Rabbit's just finishing up a story.

"And they jumped high high off the roof, so high that they got stuck up there in the..."

He stops and grins at Nadine as she comes in.

"I don't know what you did, but thank you. I owe you one."
Obscurejones

Not me.  They must got your contract temporarily misfiled apparently.
Who

"Right."

Elyea points excitedly at Rabbit. About to expound a startling startling revelation.

"Look Mummy! Rabbit's Clark!"
Obscurejones

I know dear.
Who

Elyea just smiles and hugs him, she's rather happy with how things have turned out.

"So I guess the secret's out then."
Obscurejones

Yep, but thankfully she doesn't seem traumatized.
Who

Why would she be? Doesn't every kid imagine their favourite toy is magic?

"So, what now? I didn't really think this far ahead."
Obscurejones

Well, at this point I pray she doesn't develop an Elektra complex and you... Do whatever it is you were going to do... Just with Elyea more aware of it.
Who

Rabbit nods, looking at her blankly, though I can assure you, if he knew what an Electra complex was he would be thoroughly revulsed.

"Come and play blocks Rabbit."

Elyea hops of his knee and starts trying to pull him over to her blocks, luckily he cooperates or it wouldn't really happen.
Obscurejones

Nadine goes to her chair and fiddles with the edge of her blindfold.
Who

"Come play with us Mummy?"

Rabbit's building a wall around Elyea.
Obscurejones

Nadine nods and let's her blindfold stay where it is.  Walks over t to add to the wall.
Who

Elyea marvels as the wall grows around her, she sits on the ground and watches it grow.

"How much longer do you need to keep that on?"
Obscurejones

I'm not sure.  I can see a little but light is painful.
Who

"It'll get better though right?"
Obscurejones

She thinks.  Nods tentatively.
