A Dramatic Birth.Maybe just maybe Something will go right for once.A Dramatic Birth. by Chichi-xD
Something did go right but nothing quite prepared him for this. To be a dad. At least not this way... The confusion he felt when that weird thump sounded on the Keeps magically defended walls. The pure shock and horror when he and Hel stepped out to find his step dads dead body at the gate. And that man who was after them all- able to kill one of the strongest of the group, who could easily able to kill two teenagers just barely adults, was standing there next to it. Especially the girl next to him, heavily pregnant with twins and expected to pop in the next week or two. Hels' desperate and shocked cry as she latched onto his arm trying to not fall over as her other hand clutched the front of the robe by her quite frankly huge stomach.
So he did the first thing that came to mind: Protect Hel and the twins.
He got them all out of there- after yelling for Chine and Alei of course. They would deal with Metanurax. Once his mother saw
Baby BluesCorrienda held her breath as she lowered the baby into his cradle and took a step back. Thankfully, this time he stayed asleep. She took another step backward and let herself fall back onto the bed. There was laundry to be done and a meal to be cooked, but at the moment she couldn't make herself move.

She was betrothed to a wonderful man who doted on the both of them every second he was home, and who had sought the aid of unknown powers to regain the power of speech, just for them. Her life was blessed - she shou
'Morning' SicknessCorrienda slipped her new sandals onto her feet and beamed - they went perfectly with her beautiful new dress. She'd already seen the hairdresser, so all that was left to do was to do her makeup and have a bit of dinner with Galedorin before heading off to the party in the Hinterlands. She wasn't terribly excited about the social aspect of it, but she did enjoy dressing up. She was happy to simply be an adornment for Galedorin's arm, even if large crowds made her feel a bit sick.'Morning' Sickness by corrienda
Her stomach lurched, and she steadied herself on a nearby building. That was... odd. Thinking about crowds certainly made her anxious, but she usually didn't feel this queasy unless she was in the midst of them. Corrienda took a deep breath and kept walking, reciting alchemical formulas in her mind to try to calm her nerves. That didn't work - if anything, the nausea seemed to be growing rather than easing.
