Light In Her LifeThe room became silent. All three pairs of eyes were on the two sleeping figures. It was a calm, peaceful moment. It was one of those moments when you sit back and realize just how close you are to these people, how much of a family you are.
It was one of those moments that made them realize just how lucky they were.
The trio were brought out of their little daydreams when Maria yawned, stretching her arms out at her sides - or at least her right arm, as Dakkarsis was still holding on to her left one.
"Hey there, Sleeping Beauty." Cassidy poked Maria's arm playfully. "How are you feeling?"
"A lot better, now that I've finally been able to sleep." The blonde replied quietly, still rather drowsy. "The surgery... How's Patchouli?"
"The surgery went very well... He'll be here in a few minutes." Cassidy sat down beside the hospital bed, gazing down at her older sister. Her golden hair was fluffy and messy from laying down for so long, her cool blue eyes were half-open, clouded with drowsine
One Plus One Makes Three - Ch8Chapter 8: "Just An... Ordinary Day"
The other eight Loonatics turned their heads in surprise when, a few minutes later, the pair finally made their entrance into the kitchen.
Rev offered the two coyotes a smile. "I guess you really weren't feeling good, huh Cass?" If only they could see the ever-so-subtle mischieviousglint in his deep green eyes.
"Yeah, we were up most of the night." Tech answered sheepishly. What he said, however, wasn't a lie. They had been up really late last night.
"Are you feeling better now, Cass?" Lexi asked, an innocent tone in her voice.
"Oh yeah. It was just... something I ate." Cassidy replied cheerfully.
"That's what she said." Seth whispered, earning a foot smashed into his from Quick.
Tech ignored his brother's comment, pulling out a chair from the table. He met Cassidy's smile of thanks as she sat down and he pushed it back in place. He nuzzled the top of her head briefly before moving off to the cupboards to grab them both breakfast.
"What do yo
ToU: PBoaTS - Be Right BackThere I was, sitting before the computer, happily typing away. Today was one of the rare days that Emily was online while I was still conscious. NOTHING could tear me away. Not even the most epic episode of NCIS or Stargate: SG-1.
But, alas, something always managed to worm it's way in there.
I heard the thumps of my little sister galloping down the stairs. "Danielle!" She called out. "We have to go and bring the horses in, the bugs are getting bad."
I'm sorry Emily, as much as I love you, Mellow comes first.
"Be right back!" I quickly typed into the convo box before signing out and jumping to my feet.
With our dangerous adventure over with, I returned to the computer, only to receive a message Emily had sent while I was away.
"Brbing your brb."
I bet she was hungry.
So, I went about my business on FaceBook, checking messages and making sure my animals were all fed whilst waiting for Emily to return.
I heard the thumps on the stairs again.
"Time to clean the bunny cages!"
"I'll brb AGA
The Dutiful Husband...Patchouli could hear the voices in the room. His eyelids opened and he stared blankly at everyone with his large, almost unresponsive eyes. Then he decided upon something. He was hungry. He closed his eyes again, giving out a pitiful squeak.
Cassidy smiled. "I believe your little man wants something to eat, Maria."
A light blush appeared on the blonde's cheeks. "It would sound like it, huh?"
Dakkarsis stared at the two girls blankly, almost perfectly imitating the expression Patchouli had on his face only moments ago.
The red-head gave Dakkarsis an incredulous look. Maria simply returned the look he was giving her.
"Uhhh," Cassidy coughed. "Tech, how about you and Dakkarsis go out to the waiting room and... chat for a little bit, okay?" She quickly shoved her husband towards the taller alien.
Tech gulped, eyes wide. He and Dakkarsis had not interacted very much, mainly just tolerating each other's presence for the sake of their girls. But, seeing the firm, demanding look on Cassidy's f
