~Reckoning~

Post by CielloRegalo on Wed Feb 03, 2016 7:41 pm

First topic message reminder :

It had been a few months since the petite monster came to RedPointe for sanctuary. Shortly after her arrival she bore healthy twin boys. First born, Sillent Sune'ere Zerephan whom was named after Angelo's grandfather and a one of his close friends; or so Ciello understood. Second born, Angelo Aaron Zerephan. Ciello intended for the boy to carry on his fathers name in hopes he could someday make clean the name of his father. Until that day though, the name would hang on the boy like an ugly sign. This is the very clouded and cruel opinion of the infants mother at least. No, Ciello and Angelo never truly loved each other though they tried. In the end all that sorrow and betrayal and loss will carry on in the next generation. She had no legal right to give them their fathers last name for they never married. And while they would carry the blood of Regalo, Excellence, they would carry the Zerephan name first and foremost.

Like the monster she is, it took no time at all for Ciello to abandon the infants after they were born. Left in the care of the girls of RedPointe to feed, clothe, bathe and protect while the wild momma went out to do whatever it is Ciello's do in the wild. Every few days or week though she would return and come back to purr and coddle the infants and whisper wonderful and terrible things into their forming minds. There was motherly instinct there and it showed itself at times but equally she hated the little reminders of the man that got himself killed. Not strong enough.

Today she was at RedPointe and as usual she tried to take her litter outside into the wild like the animal she is. The tiny mother sat out on a blanket with the twins crawling away in either direction and big sister Meryl climbing on Ciel only to float a few inches and land again. A tether was tied to the girl while the boys are constantly picked up  and adored one at a time before set down so she can save the other boy from crawling too far off the blanket into the cold wet grass. Gentle nomming of fingers came and went without incident to everyones relief. After all, Ciel did try to eat Sillent's hand a week after he was born. Postpartum Depression doesn't go over well with Ciello.

Truffle:
The Zerephan were gathering with intent to stay. Negotiations for the twins would be carried out in the following days with Sophonax if Truffle did not make a decision as a' blood relative - sort of.

Sillent asked for baby Angelo and Truffle's wariness was ebbing the longer time stretched after Ciello's death. Decades of obedience slowly burning their last. It appeared she would give but the Shadow was still processing and thinking of reasons she may not want to hand the twins over. So far there were no negatives to balance out the positives of the offer. Welding goggles on the blue skin turned to Rose then back to Sillent and baby Sillent casually. "Fair point." Family should be with family for as much time as possible.

When Rose had enough of the chaos taking place on her watch, Big blue and Pink watched attentively for her orders to be issued. Syn would take the body, "Yes, Ma'am. That means I'm coming with you, Sir. Not that I think you'll do anything funny with the twins but I'm not keen on letting them out of my sight just yet." Mother's corpse would be transferred to the meaty looking youth several inches shorter then Truffle, wielding balanced musculature to take the weight of the more minor body. With baby Angelo was passed to his great-grandfather Truffle will casually trail along them to their temporary residence.

Meryl:
A monster was coming out of the trees and the little ladies head turned away from the Ranch to look. It sounded big which made Meryl glance up at El to check if everything was pay or if the noise was bad. He was calm and the girl took a steely little breath before looking at the trees bend and the source of worry appeared. Iris! The Netherhound was so much bigger then when Meryl saw her last but the friendly 'Apt!' proved it was her all along.

Meryl stared wide eyed then burst into smile with sex perfectly even teeth shown. "Ap!Apapap!" Yes, Meryl spoke Netherhound. Someone promote the linguist! Little Zeal appeared and approached. His features were so different then any she had seen which had the deep blue eyes of the femme locked on his face and mouth, traveling up over his hair now and then too. Meryl glanced to El, looking for how she should react then focused on Zeal again. He spoke little and Meryl took it upon herself to ask El, "Ah?" in regards to Zeal.


Syn:
Gore covered babes were fine so said Rose who acted as if a headache were quacking in her skull. Syn locked unblinking eyes on the woman and for a moment that stare sought to look beneath flesh for the flow of energy within her and find the tethers connected to her. Goat eyes didn't look different but it felt like laying on a bed of eyeballs all rotating about up against your skin and even inside you. Creepy shit.

Blood of the Daughter trumps Law of Matron in honoring family. This saved Syn a lot of effort and she physically relaxed in relief. "Thank you, appreciate it." Truffle handed the body over and Syn had to resist snuggling up against the dead body to smell and feel the flesh of her maker and the designer of so many. No words were exchanged from the 'sisters' which many found odd during the few times they crossed paths. Fact is, anything one wants to say is already known and the presumable answers are often already know. That is to say they preemptively communicate through bond of soul and blood to the point that they can act as true extensions of one body. They did all come from the same, flesh, mind and soul.

Hair from the Mother is all that is needed in exchange and Syn has no qualm with that. It might make someone paranoid to be assured there was no 'foul play' without showing such concern. But Syn wasn't the type to get paranoid over others intentions. She had what she wanted and it went far better then what was prepared for. "Sure." Syn paused then jutted a thumb back towards the blanket several yards back. "S'back there where ya left it." She half grinned. Head matter still littered the area with the entirety of the dead woman's scalp strewn about with massive chunks of platinum hair and braids for the picking like easter eggs laid out for the hunt.

(OOC: A little corrective note: El is actually outside the ranch, Rose, gathering Iris and Zeal before heading back. S’all good, I’ll just play the part of every ‘referral’ to El being Sillent.)

Sillent/El:

{Inquiries.}

Sillent took Ang Jr in arm and just looked from the baby to Rose. Awkwardness for the stout old man doubled but he kept his cool. Contraire to belief, Sillent actually didn’t pipe up at the mention of Ciels body. Hell, the whole ‘cremation/burried’ question was more out of ‘kindness’ then anything. He honestly didn’t care about it, no, not after what happened to Meryl. That hair comment though…

“Dare I ask why the hair?”

Normally that type of stuff was for rituals or memorams. Maybe he just answered himself, but the inquisitive nature of the Zerephans kicked in there, for a moment. Rose mentioned the rooms and Sillent upnodded in response.

“You wanna point me in the direction of them? El can sniff me and the boys out when he gets closer and you look like you want to be left alone with one less problem for a bit.”

A bit to frank? Yes, but it showed on the girls face. Tuffles piped up and steel colored eyes turned to the nanny. A frown formed on his face but, what could he do?

“You got a name?”

Syn was given a wide birth, to say the least. She seemed uninterested in the boys and Sillent, and frankly? That was fine. One less issue to deal with in a land of issues at the moment. With Roses approval and direction given (or the more likely ‘I’m gonna guide you there ‘cus I don’t trust your old ass) Sillent would be off, babies and shadow-nanny in tow, towards those rooms.

Meanwhile, Iris’ ‘ears’, the hyper tuned bone spikes on her shoulders twitched and  her head lifted up at the babies ‘Apts’. Head tilted, she turned head inward eyeing the girl, bone tail swaying. Yes, she recognized this one. A pale thing white tongue slipped out of a lipless maw and gently licked the side of the girls face. El smiled.

“That’s right, you were around with her and dad. Iris loved Kids…Helps they weigh as much as a feather to her.”

He tilted his head up a bit at the inquiry. Zeal, despite Meryls look had a sort of ‘on track but wandering mind’ all little kids tended to have and was taking anything he could see in, holding Els hand all the way. El pointed a thumb to himself.

“Biggest brother.”

He pointed to himself, then pointed to Zeal.

“Second biggest, and so on. You’re third, I believe Sillent is fourth and Ang Jr is the youngest, simple as that.”
The trek to Redpointe was going smoothly. Slow but smoothly which was good given the oddities and body movements going on at the ranch.

Rose cocked a brow at Syn as she stared; her own slightly too large irises meeting the goat eyes in turn. Depending on what she was intuned with, Syn might see there was a lot to the brown skinned Jann or Nepenthe, or she may pick up nothing at all. Eventually, Rose shook her head and broke contact— now was not the time for weirdly intimate games of dominance. At least, that was how she interpreted it.

She’d stand back and fight a grimace as the corpse was passed over; noting something, a giblet perhaps, had fallen out with the motion. Another stomach lurching to season the day…

“Well you certainly got m’ there….” she’d groan to Syn’s words and her strange sense of humor. And she was absolutely correct. There was plenty of scalp back where it had all went down. It was more than enough to give the land what it demanded: a tribute to cleanse and forgive a powerful death within the confines of Redpointe and the wards. As for Sillent asking why she needed hair? Her only answer was “Tribute. Pay the dues.”

“-Guess I’m that damned easy to read!” Rose continued, huffing at a second ‘gotcha’ from the gaggle of strangers. She wasn’t the one with all the social grace, smiles and patience— not like Khooey who geniunely seemed to like people, naively gave them the benefit of the doubt and was as helpful as she was sweet. But Khooey wasn’t around and Rose wanted things to wrap up soon. The entire scenario had fully drained her batteries. “Head up the stoop and take a side door in. Might run into Whinnie but Gwenna already knows what’s up. Tell ‘em I’m putting you up and its on my ticket. End of the hall on the right side there’s a staircase. You want to go up it, second door on the left. I’ll move the bassinet in later on.”

A sigh and she turned to the old coot and jerked her thumb toward the ranch home. “It’s my ass but its also my word. They won’t give you any trouble.” With that, she set off back toward the pines with one objective in mind that she’d rather not have to engage in: picking around in the frozen dirt and snow for a dead woman’s hair.

Truffle:
Sillent Prime earned a temporary companion in the form of the Shadow whom wore a polite smile with fangs sticking out over lower lip. Welding goggles covered her eyes but she didn't direct her attention at anyone person or thing unless it really needed that focus. Instead she took things in as a whole while surveilling different angles from what shadows were present all around. The man asked for a name and she took a breath to prepare for the long winded assortment of titles she had accomplished over the many years. "... Call me Truffle." Another smile. No need to spoil their ears with more nonsense.

The Shadow was unconcerned about any Rituals that would be done with Ciello's hair, it was there business and she had no opinion on the matter. When Rose directed them, Truffle would walk in her ugly pale beige crocs over frozen land to follow the Zerephans to the guest house for now.

Meryl:
The big tongue of the Netherhound caressed the girls dirty cheeks and she laughed and squealed in response. Rubbing little hands under her plump face to wipe way the wet left behind. El explained Zeal to her and while Meryl cannot grasp what it is to be a sibling or the order of birth yet she does seem to understand the general concept of 'family' and understood that Zeal was as safe as El or Iris to her.

Deep blue eyes watched Zeal for a long moment before she looked up at big brother El and started to vent at him. "Ah! Anooo an oh wha!? Nmmm blblbl apa bo oo! Aza da pa." Grand hand gestures paint out the picture of her story as she unloads her soul on sweet El, her new therapist. No one will fully understand the baby gibberish but the girl will settle down at the end and seem content with getting that off her chest. After said rant her stomach grumbles and she sticks her fingers in her mouth to gnaw aching baby teeth on. The tiny whine of an incoming tantrum on the rise for a hungry Zerephan girl.


Syn:
The taste of the Nepenthe was nearly on her tongue from studying her so intensely. She was not human, nothing here was just human. Delightful genetic and hereditary morsels all in flavors she'd never had before. Acknowledging this fact would quickly drive her hunger beyond her own control so she did her best to turn a blind eye to the matter which was sort of an impossibility for her but the effort was made.

Skin quivered and the girl shuddered which would come off as a natural response to the cold and not the excitement of cells with one purpose: consume. "Well, good luck!" No time to offer Rose a hand with the grizzly task and no concern for whatever these Zerephan men were. Syn about faces, hauls the corpse onto her shoulder then starts running across the land just as fast as she arrived. Thick coiled muscle and unrestricted force carve out divots in the frozen earth with each step propelling her forward.

Uninterrupted the salmon haired woman will exit the Compound proper and locate an area more manageable for her choice of travel. A solid rock is all she needs to reach out and create a door back to her Lab and only for the time long enough for her to step through and close it. Once the seam is closed the door will cease existing. Avoiding fun reach around anomalies all the while. Gotta put that body on the rocks asap.

Sillent/El:

{The Windings.}

So he was right, mostly, about the hair. For a second, he thought Rose would fight him on something or hold him at gunpoint and guide them all there, but luckily directions were given. He nodded and shifted in place with the babies in tow.

“Thank you.”

Spoken simply. Taking the directions (and stopping to mention Roses name when needed, of course, as well as El when the boy arrived), the old many wouldnt take long to get where he needed to be, even with his little entourage. Details were taken in about the housing though. It seemed the accents werent for show at least which was something. A body of water could be seen not to far off either from a window. Zeal and El would probably like that, the two loved to swim after all.

“Truffle.”

Sillent said simply just as he entered their assigned room. The first thing zoomed in on was a bed and this he went to, slowly and carefully placing the twins down on them.

“You sure take after your damn father.”

Muttered more to himself, but in referral to Ang Jr.The boy was still sniffling and snorting a lot while Sillent 2 seemed more or less, calmed down. Producing a clean hankie of sorts, the man began the process of diligently, carefully, gently, and slowly wiping off the specks of blood on each boys face. Ang Jr was of course proving a bit more fussy while Sillent, squirmy like all babies were, seemed more placid at least.

“El' make a crib when he gets here. If you were wondering why I didnt ask you or Rose back there for one. Maybe two...or maybe none. Maybe he'll let 'em all just sprawl everywhere on him.”

Referring to Truffles, though whatever El did was his own thing, or something.

Meryl put up a small fuss of sorts to El, in fact, an almost intelligent one. El could of swore he heard a little speech that wasnt only baby blabbing in that tirade and...he kept it in mind.

“You dont say.”

Was all he said to them for now. Before they knew it they were on the outskirts of the ranch and for a moment El stopped, sighing. This part was never easy though he'd done it before many times.

“Alright Iris...Zeal grab your pack bud.”

Zeal nodded and Iris seemed to crouch down a bit. From her back, hanging near the center were two packs, one small (obviously for Zeal) and the other much bigger. Zeal took the smaller backpack and put it over his shoulders while El took the bigger with his free arm. A look was given to Zeal.

“You got any white milk in there?”

The 'fuss to be' was coming from Meryl and El sought to quell it at least. Zeal frowned thoughtfully and searched his backpack of kid snacks and drinks.

“Yes!”

He squeaked and handed it to El. He nodded, popped the straw in it and offered it to Meryl to see if she accepted. Turning his head to eye Iris, he sighed again and tilted his head to the side.

“Go on, I'll getcha whenever we leave, girl.”

Lowly whining slightly, Iris rubbed her massive frame, like a cat, against El, who took a step back from it, watching as Iris suddenly bolted off into the forested area. Trees and stones and boulders and stumps did nothing to hinder the hounds way, as evident by seemingly everything bending or cracking to her running will.

“And make sure if you hunt, its wild animals not in fences! And dont go into any towns or cities on your own again!”

Said loudly for the hound to 'hear'. The second, even when it happened was never a problem but the first? Cost El a pretty penny or two...or a week of free labor on the animals owners part. Nodding regardless, El turned and began pacing towards Redpointe, nostrils sniffing the air. Ah there was Sillents scent.

“Lets go see Grandad and your bros, hm?”

And they would!

Some TK RP, a continuation/finish on my and Ciels part:

16:08:55 The-Shadow Mention of El making a crib for the babes or simply forgoing it to let them lay all over him made the Shadow grin brightly, exposing teeth and extra long canines. "Boy sounds good with them. Unusual for one his age." Truffle watched Sillent clean the twins faces. She could contribute to the effort but they were not hers and he was doing a fine job anyway. "What is family to the Zerephan? Ciello and Syn are the closest I have to blood relatives and you saw how we were. Not close. Just barely non-hostile I'd say. But you came seeking Meryl and the boys..." Did they want to take them? Had they somehow heard how terribly Ciello was treating them? The root of the question was unanswered and the living Shadow was the only one around to ask anymore so ask she did. "How did you find us? Angelo said El was dead. So he wasn't in communication with the boy before he himself died. Did he send word to you, Sir?"-e-

16:17:16 Sillent {Answers.} “It's a long story, to be blunt.” Mistreatment, lack of mother but caring father, that type of jazz. He just finished wiping down Sill 2's face before sighing, moving around and sitting on the end of the bed, brow raised just looking at the two boys. Angelo Jr. Finally calmed down and just sat squirming a bit, and Sill 2 seemed to be getting groggy. “Family is a lot, mostly. Theres few enough as is despite Angelos...Dabbling. Yes I saw it and believe me, barely hostile is better compared to the slaughter and counter slaughter we've often led each other to.” A grimace formed on his face. What little people knew of fathers, brothers, and bloodshed. He'd look at truffles, eyes narrowed. “Angelo tends to write everything down. Before death, and he is, was unusually good at keeping whatever he wrote down in tact. I found you through some journal stuff he wrote down and a map to here from Nexxian. As to El...I want to tell you I know but thats the boys, his and his brothers, mothers-
16:17:26 Sillent - doing. El doesnt exactly like talking about it, when I first saw him this time he didnt exactly look like he wanted to live.” Zeal and the mention of other siblings helped quell that feeling, luckily.

16:26:31 The-Shadow had the small desire to reach out and touch baby Ang's hair but her touch was cold and dead, it would not soothe so she stands in place aside the bed. Zerephan men had a history of killing each other, that was not a good way to start convincing the Shadow that their hands would be best for the twins. She frowned, "So you've got bad blood too. How can you assure me that the boys will be safe in your care?" Mention of Angelo and his constant writing did ring a bell for the Shadow. She had been around him and Ciel, watching from shadows and had seen him writing. Such methods of documentation and communication were often left forgotten in this day and age and it made the Shadow stifle a laugh. It made sense that it would somehow have found its way to Sillent, Angelo's grandfather. El was dead and it sounded chillingly similar to Ciello's mood when she would come back from death in the past. Each time a bit more of her was gone, like sand leaking from an hourglass. Ciel had rushed into the idea that-c-
16:28:04 The-Shadow -c- being with someone and having offspring would give her some purpose and fill that emptiness. That fallacy did nothing but drive her further into a cruel state of being though. She could not love, she would never be happy so she sought to make others miserable. "Children are an easy source to give one purpose. I do hope El finds joy again. Poor child..."-e-

16:40:59 Sillent {Differences.} “The differences are most, all of those biological bad bloods are dead. Theres that and I like to think me and El know how to protect ourselves...And if that isnt assurance we picked up Iris along the way, who was originally supposed to be Els to begin with.” If that wasnt a wall of protection, Sillent didnt know what could be. “And you'll be with us to, if you choose. Which was what I was going to ask. We've no intent of just taking anyone (except Meryl, apparently, since that is what Regalo and El chose) but in the grand scheme of things, its apparently your choice and a smidgen of this Sophonoxes as well, which is why, well, why separate all things to begin with?” Bam, maybe that was incentive enough on its own, or maybe not? Sillent figured the offer would be appreciated at least. His eyes half closed and he sighed slightly, from his nostrils. Sill 2 did manage to clonk out while Ang was being a bit more fussy. Sillent reached and gently took the boy in his arms, who made a sound
16:41:07 Sillent - but quieted down after being rocked a little. “I want to tell you he will, for the moment...as long as it takes for the kids to grow, he will be, but in general? I dont know. Boys got secrets which make him frown a lot, ones he never has told anyone, I'm more concerned for when he's grown then right now, but, we'll see. Worries good to have anyway.” Ang Jr reached and lightly grabbed his finger. Sillent wiggled it and the boy cracked a smile and toothless little happy sound.

16:49:44 The-Shadow felt sad inside. Maybe Regalo's and Zerephan's were made for each other; to suffer together. Truffle was aware of Iris and was assured minority by the hounds presence among them. It was more so the way these families lived, how they struggled to smile or love that bothered her. Meryl, Sillent and Angelo were too young and too innocent to be given up on yet. They had the potential to live long happy lives together and to succeed in life in whatever they would choose. Shadow nanny would be happy to watch them for decades to come if they could reach the level of happiness they deserved. "Sounds good, pops. I'll stick with you for now." She has no end date for her stalking. Maybe when she sees the Zerephan can raise the babes well? Maybe when the kids are grown up, strong and happy, no longer needing guidance. Maybe the Shadow would become a permanent companion to the Zerephan clan for ages to come. Not like she had an expiration date herself, being undead and having lived hundreds of years already in-c-
16:51:32 The-Shadow -c- another world beyond this one. "He needs to share those secrets. Or they may rot his soul.... I can't bare to see that happen again. I'll be around, Sir, if you need me. Always in the shadows." With that she would melt down into the puddle of darkness that is cast under the bed. Slipping out of sight but always there. Watching, listening.-e-

16:57:22 Sillent {Clouds.} Was that a hint of sadness? Some. Her confirmation made him nod. “Good to be working with you...Its Sillent by the way.” In response to the sir, and to the secrets? He shut his eyes. “...Sometimes its not the matter of when to share them, but with who, or all inbetween. I agree to an extent but it must be done on his own whim with who he wants, not forced.” Another nod and he watched the nanny go, into the shadows. He had to ask later if it was a matter of literal shadows or 'pocket dimension' shadows or something but it was a small point.
