"Oh, I do. I love him and his angriness all the same." She gives Iteral's hand a little squeeze before cupping Cloudy's face in her hands and peppering him with kisses. Cloudy kissed her back and grinned. He seemed to be doing that much more often. Back at the cottage, all you would get out of him was a growling scowl (unless he was bothering Scara). "I'm sure I'm boring you with our history lesson." Lilya said to Iteral. "I'd like to hear about your family! How did you meet your husband?"

Eunice laughed and wrapped her arms around Ambrose, only quite reaching to his waist. She pulled away from the hug with bright eyes and a large grin. "That's cool! You know, I think you're the coolest friend I have!"

Cloudy laughed again. "How could I forget? We were so... well, young, I guess. Ooh, and my nail painting phase." He cringed. "I've never touched a single polish bottle since."
"Ah, yes. Those multiversal wars that you disappeared to for years without bothering to even tell me what happened. You know, the girl who saved your life. Multiple times." Lilya gave him a look and he grinned at her. "I'm still salty about it." She said to Iteral. "He came back from the other world and didn't say a thing to me! Nothing! I didn't even know he was alive!" Lilya rolled her eyes and sighed, fanning herself with her hand. "Honestly, if I hadn't dragged his feelings out, he might've been angsty his whole life." Cloudy called the waiter to order and they wrote it down on a notepad, giving a brisk nod before dashing away.

Eunice looked curiously at her hand, then back up to Ambrose. "Pardon me, but what's that supposed to mean?" She asked. She'd never seen anyone who did that before.

Cloudy rolled his eyes affectionately and took the menu back. "Oh, you know, at school." Lilya smiled, dimples showing up on her cheeks. "First day of the summer. Cloudy and I were seated with each other. I thought he was weird and broody, just staring out the window with a deep, deep frown." She waved her hands. "And then the funniest thing happened! Our teacher made us do a group project with our seatmate. And guess who was my seatmate?" Lilya tilted her head towards her husband. "That just gave me an excuse to stick with him for the rest of the year. He hated my guts the whole time."
"I was so stupid back then." Cloudy laughed with a shake of his head, not looking up from the menu.
"I didn't know Cloudy was half a god at that time. I just thought he was a regular angsty, teenage boy! He sure acted like one." She pulled her hair down her eyes and spoke in a comically sharper voice. "You don't know me. You're just a normal girl from school. Nobody will ever understand me."

"Oh! Uh, I have friends!" She held up two of her fingers. "But they've got their own problems with their dads and moms so they aren't around much all the time." Eunice nodded shyly. "Yeahhh, I would like to be your friend! You like stars, too!"

"I think we'd do a better job at it. After all, which ones of us had to deal with humanity, not to mention customer service?" Cloudy waved his finger slightly with a grin. "Not the Gods, no. They'd crumble to dust if they met rush hour." He picked a menu from the stand, holding it up to Iteral. "Do you want to order anything? It's bad to start a conversation on an empty stomach."

Eunice exhaled deeply in relief, waving her hands in front of her chest. "Cool! That's not good, but that's still cool." She clapped twice and then looked up at Ambrose again. "Do you have any friends?" Strange question to ask from an eight year old.

"Still lightning, no longer murder or misfortune." Cloudy waved his hand a bit. "To be honest, I'm not really sure. This whole god thing is... strange. I'm mostly human now. 'Cept for the horns, and the hair, and the lightning." He looked to Eunice and Ambrose, a smile growing on his face. "Eunice got a little more sunshine than lightning. By that I mean, nothing at all. Completely human."

"What!?" She shouted and then lowered her voice to a hused tone. "What do you mean? My granpappy tells me it's still there, in the sky. Stars don't... die immediately like that, right? I mean they die, yes, but not so suddenly!"

"Oh, you know me. I fought a lot. Won a few wars. Uhhh," He rubbed the back of his neck, static springing through his fingers. "Fixed some... issues in Godsworld." Aaliyah chuckled. Unlike her husband, her voice was louder, rolling and thunderous yet elegant like waves against a cliffside. "By issues, he means arrogant gods in need of disposal." She looked youthful for her age: not a single grey hair in sight. Smile lines and crows feet were etched into her warm skin as her hoop earring gleamed in the soft light. Though, most striking of all were her bright blue eyes, contrasting deeply with her skin and hair. "I'd have gotten rid of them myself if Cloudy hadn't rebelled. Imagine that! A blue god, one from the council no less! Dethroning other gods!"
Cloudy grinned sheepishly again and gave Iteral a look. "She's not lying."

"Cassiopeia! The queen! I love how it's shaped like a crown! It's so fun to trace it on the sky." Ambrose was fun! The only other people Eunice talked about astronomy with was her family. But her mom often mixed it with astrology, and her dad was always busy. "My favorite is the Argos! It's made up of three different constellations! I saw it in a tv show but it was so cool and I've always loved it since!" She giggled.

"Heck yeah! A worthy opponent!" Lilya laughed. "I didn't go through all those years of culinary school for nothing!"
"Girls, girls. You're both beautiful." Cloudy grinned, putting an arm around Iteral and hugging her. He crossed his legs and leaned back slightly on his chair. "How've you been, Iteral? You seem happy. That's wonderful! What's been going on with your life?" He bit back the eagerness in his voice, curiosity sweeping into his words instead.

"That'd be awesome! I'd love to go stargazing with you!" Eunice clasped her hands together, a slight spring in her step. "We can roast marshmallows in the pit, too! And we can sleep on pillows and blankets. It'll be so fun!! What's your favorite constellation? You've got to have one, right?"

"Oh, you're so on!" Lilya pulled up her sleeves and held up her arms in challenge. "You may be a Witch, daughter of a Goddess but I am a determined human! I make the best focaccia!" Cloudy sighed dreamily. He smiled a lot more now, face just melting into a gooey grin as he stares at his wife. He didn't seem to hide it either.

"That's so cool!" Eunice started, ducking her head around Ambrose's hands. "Magic tricks are so... engrossing! My dad sometimes has one on his ship. He makes doves out of coins!! And crows out of handkerchiefs! It's so cool." Her eyes lit up even more. Green specks glittered in her amber irises. "No way! I like- I like stars too! I watch them on the bridge sometimes! It's super cool on the sea. No light pollution at all!"

"It's an honor to meet you too, Iteral and Ambrose." Protos chuckled. He sounded like mellow thunder without rain, unassuming yet lingering. He was a tall man whom sat up straight. His straight hair was cropped to his neck, greys and whites threading through his jet black hair. His sideburns reached down to his chin forming into a thin beard. He wore a haori of dark green. When he combed his fingers down his kimono, small sparks sprouted from his fingertips. "Cloudy speaks highly of you. A witch of good humor and lovely baking skills."

"Not as good as mine, though. Right, hubby?" Lilya pinched Cloudy's shoulder as he sat down before kissing him on the cheek. "Why didn't you tell me your sister was so gorgeous? And that your grand-nephew was handsome?"
"Please don't leave me for my grand-nephew." He replied with a smile and she kissed him again, her dark coils bounced on her head as she laughed. She turned her twinkling bronze eyes to Iteral. "What would he do without me, am I right?"

Eunice gasped, then giggled as Iteral shook her hand. Many had done that before, of course. Her father was a businessman after all. But none had been as light and fun-feeling as her aunt's. She thought that Ambrose's name sounded a bit like a weed but decided to be respectful and not comment on that. "Could I ask you? Are you a magician?" She said as politely as she could.

Cloudy laughed along with Iteral, poking her in the stomach with one arm while having the other around his daughter. "Sure has been, Iteral. I've been getting into all sorts of trouble without you. And so have you! I still can't believe you have a grandson! What does that make me? A grand-uncle?" He cleared his throat, patting his daughter's shoulder. She ran back to the table and sat down. "Why don't I introduce you to everyone? Iteral, Ambrose, this is my wife, Lilya and my daughter, Eunice. Those are my parents, Protos and Aaliyah. I..." He turned a darker shade of brown, sheepishly. "I may have brought too many people."

Cloudy's eyebrows raised, glancing from Iteral to Ambrose. "Oh? What did she say?" He opened the door and instantly the sweet aroma of honey tea and crumble cake flooded out. The shoppe itself was fairly simple, rustic in decor. Wooden planks lined the ground, contrasting the phthalo green wallpaper of triangles. The counter sat behind many circular tables and chairs with booths lining the walls and windows. The shop was empty, except for the barista patiently waiting at the counter. Cloudy's family sat in the booth by the sunniest window. An old man and woman sat together, dining through a pie while a small girl and a woman waited patiently. As they entered, the girl's green eyes lit up and she dashed towards her father. "Daddy!"
"Eunice, baby!" Cloudy bent down, kissing her on the forehead. She giggled and hugged him back before peering at Iteral and Ambrose with wide eyes.
"Good afternoon." She smiled cheerily. Seems she inherited her father's manners.

Cloudy blinked for a few moments. "Grandson." He turned his head to Iteral, eyebrows up. "You have a grandson? You've had two generations worth of family, already? That-" He shakes his head adoringly. "You and your time hijinks." Cloudy smiled and took Ambrose's hand, shaking it firmly. "It's grand to meet you, Ambrose. Now, I have a question for you." He spread his hands wide. "Do you like tarts? My wife prefers cupcakes, but I'm a right sucker for fruit." No doubt, Cloudy wasn't young anymore. He wasn't the scrawny kid with bruises dotting his arms, nor the one that cried himself to sleep holding his horns. His eyes glittered green as he lead Iteral and Ambrose to the door. He held himself with confidence, maybe with a sprinkle of suave. Though underneath, he was a bumbling hive of nerves. His mind swirled with the things to say.

Cloudy stared back in wonder before the gears in his head turned. He finally realized the "Iteral!" He shouted loudly and immediately swept her into a hug. He spun around on the sidewalk, holding his sister in his hands with glee like a little child, hugging his cousin at a dinner. "Iteral!" He said again, almost disbelieving before he spotted the other person. He gently let go of Iteral and nodded in acknowledgement. "Good evening, I assume you are my nephew? Iteral, I didn't know you could pull." A childish smile pulled at the side of his mouth.

Thirteen minutes and forty seconds... thirteen minutes and forty one seconds... thirteen minutes and forty two seconds...

Cloudy looked up from his watch, staring at the vivid pins streaking across the blue sky. White clouds crawled at a leisurely pace. A perfect, not-sunny afternoon. He wiped his sweaty palms on his pants. He sure would look ridiculous, or atleast mighty suspicious. A middle aged man dressed entirely in a suit, gold watch and sparkling diamond ring adorned on his slender fingernails. Onyx ram horns glinting in the mellow light, protruding out of his still-purple hair. An attempt to cut it short was made, but locks of curls still fell over his face and around the back of his neck. Yes, if Cloudy saw himself on the other side of the street, he'd think he was awfully familiar, and also awfully peculiar.

Lilya would've kissed him on the cheek and told him he looked stunning. The thought of her voice made the corners of his lips perk up. She was waiting inside the teashop, with the rest of his family, err, a part of his family. After all, someone family would be visiting them today. It'd been a long time since they'd talked, an even longer time since he'd left the cottage. But the image of a fellow laughing, smiling witch with a clock in hand always brought joy. Did Iteral receive his letter? Email may have been faster, but an old fashion letter never hurt anybody. He closed his eyes, trying to remember what he wrote.

Show hidden content

Dearest Iteral Wavia Lucenox,
Sister from another mister.

Hello, I hope this letter finds you well and joyful. I reckon you might not be as thrilled to hear from me again, the way I abruptly left you all like that. My heartiest apologies, I had things to attend to, in my old world. Also, I hope you do not mind me calling you 'sister from another mister'. My wife advised me to add that.

I miss you, Iteral. I miss all of you. But you know me, I'm afraid. Of what you might think of me, of what Mercy would think of me. Don't get me started about Scara, or Kendo, or Yumine. I want to be family with you again. And I want to know what went on when I left, I want to tell you what happened to me, too. But I can't do it over words and letters, or else they would never be sent at all. If you could, would you please join me, and my family, for tea over at Evan's Tea Shoppe? I'll write the date and location on a separate note. If you worry about expenses, I assure you I will deal with everything. We will be the only ones at the shop for the rest of the day.

You don't have to come, you don't have to reply either. You can simply burn this letter and let its ashes fly away. I'll forgive you. I only hope you forgave me. Again, I miss you, Iteral. You're my sister, no matter how old you become. Oh, that sounds a bit wrong, doesn't it? I will be waiting for you, and I look forward to tea.

With love and hope,
your brother, Cloudy Turner Griffin

Then, he'd slid the letter (along with the paper with information) into an envelope, sealed it with green-gold wax and sent it off, hoping he'd picked the right address. Wouldn't that be funny? If he'd picked the wrong address? Iteral wouldn't have gotten the letter in the first place. Cloudy inhaled deeply, running his hand over his face. He watched the sky again as a plane droned across the sky. The wind blew through his hair and he sighed. He looked back to his watch.

Seventeen and twelve seconds... seventeen and thirteen seconds... Seventeen and fourteen seconds

"Oi! You stop doing that!!" Sweet Jelly pointed at Cami's glare. He huffed, patted down his fluffy hair then turned back to Mona. "The Council? Oh, are you folks a diplomatic team? Forgive me for my informal introduction, then!" He curtsied slightly. "It's lovely at night, isn't it? The stars are bright and shining, and everything is quiet! It's rightfully perfect for a walk, or a picnic!" Sweet Jelly smiled brightly.

"Well! Just seeing the sights! I figured there'd be some outstanding architecture or delightful tidbits I could purchase." He smiled at Monarda Cookie before gasping loudly at Cami. "What?? Me?? Evil?? I'm not- I-" He blabbered incoherently. "Of course not!! I don't even like catching butterflies in nets!" He folded his arms, looking a bit offended at Cami's question.

"Allegia?? What is that? I can't hear you- hold on! I'm coming over there!" Sweet Jelly slid down the hill he was on and climbed his way up to the group. He dusted his pants off and held out a hand with a large smile, holding his folded parasol lightly with the other. "Sweet Bean Jelly, it's a pleasure to meet you all. I reckon you're visiting Amaryllis City as well?"

A small hum echoed across the mountain. Sweet Jelly stood amongst the plants and sighed, sitting down and twiddling his legs. "What a glorious day today has been!" He exclaimed to no one but himself. His folded parasol rested at his side as he leaned over his knees, surveying the scene. Light spilled from his body. It made him look like a small star. He spotted some figures in the distance. "Hm? Oh! New adventurers!" He stood up and waved. "Heeeyy!!! Hallo!! You folk over there!"
