Oh… I wouldn’t have minded spending just that bit more time with you. *She watches Illy remove the necklace* Oh Illy… I couldn’t. It’s too beautiful for me…
I thought you’d say that. *She offers to put it on Helena.* Nothing’s too beautiful for you. And I’m sure your Illis would agree.
Oberon smiled, kissing her hair. “That’s true, my dear. You practice your flowers.”
Illis admired both his daughter and husband as they painted, wishing he could do a portrait of them. “If only we could get you to sit still long enough, I would love to paint you and your Oppa one day.”
"We woul’ be dirtyyyy," she said.
Illis laughed. “I mean paint a picture of you, dear. Not paint on you.”
might be on later if I can make some time <3
Thordis’ reply I’ll try to get to tonight
Whether the reaction be anger or sadness.
*She nods quietly* Do need to go soon? Is there anywhere I can escort you?
We’re going to do it in Faerie. And no… *She hangs her head.* I would rather go alone. It will make parting harder for both of us, I think… *She reaches around her neck and takes of a jewel necklace.* I want you to have this. To remember me by.
Oberon smiled, kissing her forehead. “Gorgeous work, my little princess. Oh! Do you want to draw anything else at all on this one?”
“‘nother flower?” she asked. She then set about trying another flower, improving since the last. “Practice makes purrfact," she tried to quote.
Oberon smiled, watching his family work. “Your art is gorgeous. I want to build a gallery just so everyone can see how beautiful you two are together.”
Illis smiled at Obbie. “I am sure in time we’ll have enough pieces.” He whispered to his daughter, setting his head atop her golden curls. “Do you want to try a leaf on your own?”
"O’tay," she said. The brush was big in her hand and she had to use both hands to hold it alone, but she imitated her father’s technique as best she could. The leaf was large and childlike but Illis noted that she gave it a swirly tip, a little extra creative flare already in her work. "That’s very pretty, Oddie."
*She blushes under her touch and meets her gaze* Do you miss home?
Very much so. I have to go. But I am of this experience.
