"Well, it was either come relieve you for a little while or spend all night arguing with my stubborn ass husband about taking a rest," Asche smiled as she set her belongings down, "I mean, usually I'd be more eager to avoid a grumpy Red. But I figure since he's bed bound he's the easier option for once."
Asche couldn't quite tell if that was a sincere of course or an "I will eventually" of course, but there wasn't time to hash out semantics. She trusted Damian to look after everything, though, so she kissed his cheek one last time before making her way out the door to go relieve Maya.
Asche ate quickly since she'd slept longer than intended. When she finished she got up to drop her bowl in the sink, grab her bag and then stuff her thermos into it.
"I'll see you in a couple hours baby," she said, leaning over his shoulder and pressing a kiss to the corner of his mouth, "go to bed and get some rest."
"Well, that's good news at least," Asche said as she filled her thermos for later, capping it and setting it aside to fill her bowl, "I take it you've heard from Derek and your parents?" she paused to look over at him as she asked.
She remained against him for several long minutes before pulling back, "I should eat so I can go give Maya a break," she said, "gotta make sure Red's looked after so your aunt doesn't terrorize the whole town," Asche joked.
You'd think a corporation that brought you to a planet and created small terraformed domes so that they could supply their space missions wouldn't be so greedy when they lose money when the economy crashes. Or that they actually cared about the settlers they had placed on the alien infested rock You'd hope it at least.
Unfortunately, that wasn't the case for those in the domes across the planet of Kel Prime.
The corporation all but left, terminating their contract and ending their regular shipments of parts, ammunition and supplies forcing the residents who volunteered for the job to make ends meet by making deliveries which, since the only people to trade with was the corporation, very little negotiating power in prices which made them gouge the colonists which made it hard to keep up with the never ending need for things to protect themselves from the aliens.
Today was another trading day that made it to where Alice and Seth were just a little more frustrated with the amount they had to defend their newest home not sure it would make it through to harvest. It stressed them both out with the fact that they just found out she was pregnant as well.
"I swear the prices just get more expensive. It's like they want us to die."
Alice had grown up in England under a strict house because of what she was and what she meant to her family being their only female daughter. She was the only one that could continue their legacy which was a lot of pressure so as soon as she had enough money she took off and started traveling the world with just her backpack and her friend Lamont.
That's how they ended up in this shitty little town when the beater they bought in Florida broke down and the mechanic told them it would take more money than the car was worth to fix it.
So they were stuck there until they saved up enough cash to get a new one. So what was the best option? They went to a bar to drink.
An incident in town had kept Red late at work. It wasn't until the end of the sixth inning, more than halfway through their oldest son's game, that he slid quietly into the bleachers beside his wife. His gear was absent, but Red was still wearing his uniform as he settled, taking a moment to scope out the score on the board. Their team was two points ahead, runners on first and third.
"He been on the mound yet?" Red asked his wife, seeing Seth playing his secondary position as short stop rather than pitching at the moment. So far that was where he'd been playing the whole of the game, the two senior pitchers on the team having roated through the first three innings. Before Violet could answer the pitcher wound up and threw. The batter nailed a leftward line drive that Seth snagged from the air, and with practiced fluidity he took the ball and hurled it to the catcher at home plate to intercept the steal. There was a brief run down between the catcher and third before a successful tag out that made three, leaving their son's team trotting in to their dugout to get ready to go to bat while the other team took the field.
Down in the front rows of the bleachers a collection of their son's friends and cousins broke out into cheers.
Alice and Seth had grown up with some traditional families within really old blood lines within the Supernatural world. Seth was always taught he had no choice in who he would marry and Alice the opposite but when it came down to it, a treaty between the lead Hunter family and the lead Werewolf pack that was supposed to help in staving off further war. It would give the wolves the opportunity to take care of their own when they got out of hand instead of the Hunters however it made for a tense treaty as many didn't believe it would work, least of all the kids that were supposed to be the ones getting married to seal it.
Both of them took off at the first opportunity they got and ended up in Florida for the sunny beaches and fun time.
Alice had gotten a place to stay with a roommate. She would be out on the beach by herself sunning for the moment before she would get up and go to get in the water.
Alice and her family, aka Damian and Derek as her parents had died a few years prior, had taken up residence in a werewolf camp for the night. They knew it was dangerous but they had been doing it for every full moon for 3 years. Alice had just turned eighteen and tonight was supposed to be a hell of a full moon, unfortunately it would be hell on earth as a rowdy pack of werewolves came in.
The noise from them was nearly thunderous as they went out and started to strip down for the full moon to go out. The three Gregory's would look to their werewolf friends. "Stay safe tonight."
There were deterrents setup for the Gregory's themselves so they figured they would be safe. Unfortunately, they would end up chased into the woods. Their friends would find them. Derek dead, Damian bitten and Alice simply covered in blood.
"Didn't have anything better to do," she reminded him that she didn't have a job still. Finding a job when you were Irish and not native. It seemed nearly impossible. She was thinking about taking up a hobby instead.
"I'm truly sorry about her. I know you wanted things to work."
Violet didn't move to get off of him, instead she kissed him again. Eventually he got the hint and slid his hands around her ass and lifted them both up. She wrapped her legs around him, hiking her dress up higher to keep it from tearing.
Caeysha was hardly chastised at all. She was not the one who initiated contact without permission. There was no request, no nudge against her shields so she had to guess the other didn't care, or was aware she was projecting.It wasn't invasive. IN fact it was rather pleasant. She was happy which made Caeysha feel happy. She simply nudged some more amusement.
"You were the one who started announcing," she said kindly as she entered.
"I'm fine," Asche answered stiffly. In reality she was fuming quietly as she averted her gaze pointedly from the pair. That two bit little cunt had barely placed in the top twenty. How in the hell had she been partnered off with the top of the class while Asche herself was pawned off on some Lykos prick?
