PostSubject: Parental Bonds   Wed Aug 13, 2014 1:17 am

Saraiyu sat in a rather nice meeting room, one of the less formal and more fun ones... But also one of the ones of utmost secrecy. Unlike her large living area, this one had no way for someone who wasn't invited to enter until let in once it was sealed...

She figured her Quatro would appreciate such details for what they needed to talk over... Her legs crossed, she leaned back in the comfy and plushly adorned armed chair. If she could drink with no ill effects, she would have a glass of something in her hand. Instead she just leaned her head against it. She had called Esmerelda here for something of importance really. The woman needed some help, whether she wanted it or not.

Esmerelda walked the hallways, pausing at an intersection. It had been a little while since she'd met with Sarai in one of these rooms. She went over the directions in her head before turning right... and then circling back and going left. Okay, left. And then... Yes, this way and AHA. Here we go.

She wondered what Sarai needed her for. Especially in this room. She leaned in the door. "Um.. You wanted to see me?" She said before coming in, closing the door behind her. She sat in one of the chairs, rather more properly than she usually would. If Sarai called her here, it had to be important. Were they invading? Holy crap, they were invading! Maybe she needed to go under cover as a shinigami?

"Yes." Sarai waited until Esmer was seated to press the button, the big red one she really liked to press that really didn't do anything. But she pretended it did, while she mentally controlled a thrall to set the room to its secrety nature.

Her hand moving from the button a bit sadly, she then steepled them and leaned forward as she stared at Esmer for a few moments. "...Why haven't you said hi yet? To her I mean. You've been watching her for a while, yes?"

Esmer watched her push the button. Ah, the seal door button. She wasn't sure as to the mechanism, but she was pretty sure it was advanced high science, beyond her reasoning. This room was now completely secure. So what secret matters of state where they going to..

"Eh?" She tipped her head. Why... hadn't she said hi? to her? She'd been... her face turned bright red. "O-OH! . Um.. It's... It's about that... Um... well.." She looked to the side, suddenly awkward. "C-corona... It's just... She's got a boyfriend now... I mean, I don't care about him and I almost had her at the ball but it's been so long if I call her up and go "I want you" now, she's not going to go for it... and I'll admit she makes me a LITTLE nervous. She's just so cute..."

"...Wait what? Who what... I don't..." Sarai listened to her tirade as her face grew more and more confused. What? Who? What?

She just stared in disbelief wondering what and who Esmer was even talking about. This was supposed to be some dramatic reveal about her daughter not...another tryst??? Who had a boyfriend what?? Why was Esmerelda BLUSHING over this person?

Spoiler:

Esmer watched the confusion on Sarai's face grow. What? What was she confused about. Surely she must know... Wait.. Maybe that wasn't what this was about? She cleared her throat and calmly straightened out her dress, getting the little wrinkles smooth, put one leg over the other, hands in lap and sat up with perfect posture.

"This... isn't about my observing the Shinigami medical captain from a totally normal distance in a perfectly healthy and absolutely tactical manner?"

"...No...Wait you've been observing her?" Sarai's face got more disbelieving as she tried not to laugh, eventually morphing into something as she had to cover her face and let it out. Esmerelda's switch to utterly business like and calm now was the best part. She couldn't help it!

Several moments later, she looked up, tears streaming from her odd eyes as she laughed lightly. It was manageable... "You got that much of a crush? That's kind of adorable, but not as adorable as other things. Like your adorable little offspring in the human world? Hmm? Why didn't you bring her to me? I could have kept her safe you know."

She frowned and started to blush a little before Sarai finished her sentence. Her adorable little off....spring... Wut... Her eyes widened, her expression completely still otherwise before she leaped from her seat and ran to the door. Damn it. Open open open open open, she was SO not ready to have this conversation. She pounded on it, tried to squeeze through the cracks, tried to open a garganta.

Finally, she walked back to the chair, short of breath, panting before collapsing. "Okay... Fine... Let's... Let's talk about..." She shook her head before curling into a ball and muttering into her legs. "My daughter..."

Saraiyu just watched as Esmerelda scrambled to escape, sighing and rubbing her forehead in slight annoyance. It was fine to talk about a love life and a crush but not a child? Esmer for you.

Watching her collapse, Sarai almost asked if she was done or not but the pitiful curling had her frowning again. She really should get some alcohol for her... Moving to stand, she slipped to an innocuous wall and opened it, taking out bottles of Steinn's carefully crafted liquor and poured a few shots. Bringing them back to the Espada, she held out one. "Yes, please. Like her name? Where she came from? Why she is living in human world and making friends with Xavos?"

Esmerelda took the shot and downed it before holding her glass out for another. Once she got that, she took a small sip of it. Didn't want to make Sarai keep pouring her shots, nor get drunk. Just... Just a little loose. "I thought I kept that an absolute secret. I wouldn't normally hide anything from you but.. It's... It's just..." She sighed. "Well... I guess... we should start with the worst part first... She came from.."

Esmer shook her head and down the shot. "It's not worth saying where she came from. Suffice it to say her father is alive in the human world and if neither I nor she ever see him again that would be quite alright..." there was a certain odd... vulnerability to her voice on the subject. Not much in Esmer's tenure had ever seemed to disturb her.

"But... I named her Phaedra. She goes by Fay though." A smile slowly bloomed on Esmer's face. "I.. I'm not fit to raise a child. I think in exchange for never having to deal with her, the father helped supply me with a special gigai that would incorporate itself while she grew. So I left her to grow up in the human world." She sighed. "Turns out I was still a pretty shitty mom though because her powers developed weird since she didn't know what she even WAS and she's 200 years old and still a teenager..."

Esmer raised an eyebrow. "Wait... What now about Xavos?"

Sarai didn't mind, this was a bit of a personal talk and if it made Esmerelda feel better... She shrugged. "One of the thralls caught something interesting, I followed it and found you as the source. I've known for a bit now but wanted you to come to me with it... And with her befriending Xavos the time seemed right to finally reveal my hand really."

Picking up on Esmer's tone, Sarai's frown grew larger though she tried to fight it. If Esmer was like this... Then it was pretty miserable. No details for a direct question asked? She nodded and listened, wanting to hear the story and not knowing how to comfort her Espada in this... Whatever he had been had been something miserable... So even her questions about how the man had made such a thing as a gigai that worked like that were kept down for now.

Instead she focused on the next bit of the story, the happy parts. "Phaedra... That is a pretty name... You could have brought her to me you know. I would have kept her safe and taught her all she needed to know so she wouldn't have weird developments."

Was there a pout in her voice? Sarai was looking away at least. She kept looking away even as she continued. "So she is stuck as a teenager? I wonder if that has to do with the gigai or just arrancar physiology. How does one like her age at all given that we do not?

Oh, she made friends with him you see. They bonded over books, if I remember correctly... Don't let the man know but I sent a thrall to watch over him in the human world and make sure he was enjoying himself. I caught a bit of it before they left in a garganta."

She appreciated that Sarai inquired no further about the father. She would tell her the important parts later... when she was ready. "Thank you... It means light.. I felt like it was fitting... And.. I know you would have protected her but... I just... I don't know... Maybe I didn't want anyone to know about how she was conceived... but."

She giggled a little. "Arrancar age, silly. You're the only one who's THAT immortal. It's just very slow. Slower at adulthood. She should be an adult in another century." She said with a wistful sigh.

"Well... As long as he's behaving...She's..." She sighed, frowning and looking away. "She's precious to me."

"Welcome. It is rather fitting, she seems like a pleasant person at least." Feeling a bit left out still, the Corona rubbed her forehead. Hearing that only confirmed that Saraiyu did not want to push on such events just to fill her curious mind.

"...Just because I haven't aged in millenia is no reason to... bring up my apparent immortality." Sarai sighed, pushing away her pout at the apparent snub of her protection. Esmer had her reasons and the last of her pout went with that response. Her striated eyes turned back to Esmer and she gave a soft smile. "We'll see in a century then... And he is. I do not think Xavos has it in him to misbehave really. Think of it this way, he has little friends so he will more than likely protect her."

"So there is one more guardian for your precious daughter, if you think of it that way. You will have to introduce me at some point." Raising an eyebrow, she waved her hand in a 'whenever you have time' motion before continuing. "My little Elly got herself a cute girlfriend recently~"

Esmerelda frowned, noticing Sarai's various pouts and frowns. She curled up a little more. She was not only a lousy parent but a lousy friend, it seemed. Although she smiled a bit at Sarai's reaction to aging.

"Well... As long as he's being nice to her.. And.. Um... " She sighed. "I think I'd have to introduce MYSELF to her before I introduced you to her.." She peeked up at the mention of Elly. "Aww, really? Wait... I didn't think she... y'know.."

"I figured that... But you should soon, before she gets too old and confused. As an Espada you have resources... so the longer you wait the worse it'll be trying to explain to her." Sarai leaned back, rubbing her forehead again amidst jingles of her bells. Esmer was in a real pickle with this... She not only had a daughter and had known entirely about her and been her stalker pretty much...

She'd never even said hello or explained anything. Poor woman was probably in for an awful time when she told her, but each year that passed would make it that much worse she felt.

Saraiyu bet Esmerelda knew all this so she didn't repeat it, instead she nodded and shrugged. "I didn't think so either but...They are uh...attached. I thought she was going to date some shinigami rogue and then she comes back with a woman!"

Esmerelda giggled, before suddenly frowning, a sullen look on her face. "No... No, but she should have. That shinigami rogue is who the captain I like is dating.." She grumbled furiously under her breath for a moment before sighing. Oh well. "But I'm glad Elly found someone. And if we're being more candid than I usually would be, I'm glad you never let me get near her." She said with a sensitive smile.

"But... I dunno.. maybe you're right... about Fay, I mean... I've been rationalizing it forever that she was better off not knowing but... If she made friends with Xavos.. she must know about Arrancar by now... That blunt lunkhead probably told her everything... I think I might be out of excuses but... It's scary..."

"...Really? Reaaally?" Saraiyu's face had no masks at the moment so her utter shock showed. This was interesting! This was amazingly interesting! She wanted more than anything to laugh, but she held it in since this was a rather serious discussion. Elly's almost boyfriend then went on to steal the Medical Captain from Esmerelda?

Waving her hand, the Corona accepted that they were being unusually candid. "Oh of course. I'm sorry for my lack of trust, but my precious daughters heart is something I wanted safe."

Moving from her seat, she walked over and bent to many jingles as she put her hand on Esmer's head. She petted the dark locks softly with a small smile. "But you've faced much worse things. It will hurt and she will be upset... But I think its possible for you to make it up to her, and you do have a lot to. I'll be here with my shoulder to cry on if you need it, or to help you plan a happy introduction party if that is needed either."

She blushed and glared at the floor, unable to meet Sarai's gaze. Okay so maybe he hadn't stolen her from Esmer, so much as stole her from the... other one or two people above her on the list of people after Lakshmi's affections. But that was neither here nor there. She didn't move, but her eyes widened when Sarai began stroking her hair. "Mmm." She made a small noise of embarrassment.

"Well.. You were probably right to, honestly. "If... If I... y'know... went and talked to her... would you go with me? Y-you wouldn't have to be part of the conversation... just... y'know... Keep me from running away." Something she'd done before when she'd considered doing this.

"Then I will go and hold your arm so you can't flee." Sarai nodded solemnly, she would be sure to make sure Esmerelda had no escape and would do this. Hopefully the poor girl wouldn't think Sarai was her other parent or something...

"Unless you wish me to hide in the bushes? I could do that instead, just knowing I am there and will embarrassingly stop you from running may force you to action." Gently playing with her nose chain, Sarai hmmed to herself, though her other hand continued her soothing head pets.

She glanced up, almost wanting to give Sarai a hug for how nice she was being. She knew Sarai was sweet, but sometimes it didn't show with how she kept people at arm's length. She gave her a small but genuine smile. "I don't think the bushes will be necessary... I don't think it would be too awkward if ah... if I had a friend come along." She said the word friend oddly. As if she were embarrassed to even utter it, her face showing a rare flush.

"Well it will be utterly awkward anyways so might as well have me standing there smiling anyways." Sarai laughed, pleased to want to be included in such an important event. Smiling down in return, she felt that poor Esmerelda was too vulnerable right now to even attempt meeting the girl... Though too much waiting would be bad for her nerves as well.

If she noticed the blush, she definitely did not comment and just accepted the term as it was. Esmer might be too embarrassed to just accept any praise or acceptance Sarai had at the moment.

Esmer smiled softly, glancing up for only a moment before looking down. "I mean... You know I don't normally care about... MUCH... I mean... I care more about consequences then I let ON, but..." She sighed, getting tripped up over her own words. "Just... she deserves the best... and I'm still not sure that means me... but she at least deserves to know the truth, so..." She sighed again, wanting to curl into a ball and die again.

"Besides. Funnily enough, my daughter has herself a little girlfriend too." She looked up, an almost normal expression on her face. "I have to meet them to figure out if this human's good enough, right?" She said with a little chuckle.

"She's old enough to know what she wants. Give her the information and let her decide what she wants to do? Even if its not for the best, if its what she decides... She gets that right." Sarai frowned, not wanting to be blunt but... Well the girl was a young woman and on her own. She was her own person, not just part of Esmer so Esmer couldn't go making decisions for her.

Poking the mopey forehead, she tried a soft grin. "Now that is an amusing coincidence. You should meet them and bring a gift. A sorry I missed all your birthdays gift, and also a congratulations one on having a girlfriend... Would you want me to send my other spy out so you can see what kind of human it is?"

She was willing to spy on them for Esmers peace of mind, taking the little joke seriously.

"Yeah.. You're right." She said, crossing her arms, kind of wishing she could get a hug but not about to ask for one. "That's all I can do... is tell her and... hope she at least doesn't hate me, yeah?" She said with a little self-derisive laugh. She sighed and looked up, managing a little grin of her own.

"Mmm... I don't want to meet her girlfriend yet... Like you said... she's old enough... I want to meet her, but not unless Fay decides she wants me to..." She nodded. Okay... She would meet Fay and then... Fay would let Esmer know.. what parts of her life she was allowed to be part of...

"No.. I don't want to spy on her anymore... well.. I do, just... not yet? I don't know... But you're right.... I need to go meet her... Soon. Very soon." She sighed. "If I thought I could handle it right now, I'd say right now, honestly."

"I think that is pretty much it, unfortunately." Sarai sighed, her hand petting Esmerelda's hair again in an attempt at soothing. She wouldn't lie to the woman, that was about all she could do at this point was try to make her a bit more relaxed about the whole thing.

That grin was a bit better and Saraiyu nodded encouragingly. "Good idea then... And I shall hold off on the spying myself then."

Another smart idea, Saraiyu moving back and holding out her arms in the universal sign to get a hug. "Come here, you really aren't ready yet. Take a day or so to collect yourself and I will personally drag you to meet her. No more than a week, you'll work yourself into a fever getting nervous."
