Isabella skips down the list of cities by population to put a portal setup in Seattle. Mostly for her and her mother's and potentially Zeviana's convenience. It's the biggest city within reasonable commute distance of the clan lands.

It is here that he and Isabella are hanging out, unprotected by any wards, when someone back in New Kystle thinks to check.

"Darling!" exclaims Yerena Liandril. "I've found Adarin! That liar Antelier said he was nowhere to be found but I just double-checked, and he's with that extraplanar hussy in her plane. Holding her hand. Those odd birds they have are practically on top of each other. How is your mana supply, darling?"

Her husband Gervail pokes his head from his study. "Excellent, I was saving for expanding the house. If you found Adarin, though, I think the dining room can just be cramped for a little while longer. I'll go get the kids, I know for a fact Elasali hasn't spelled anything in a week - she can pitch in, for sure."

He goes to go get the kids.

Yerena goes and fetches a spellbook and hunts down the page describing the planar transfer.

The kids are retrieved, grilled on their mana situation (good all around), and then set on tasks to help with once Yerena's found the correct page. Once they do a tally of all mana present, they are happily surprised to find that in total they have enough for both Gervail and Yerena to go. A nurse is fetched, told to keep everyone behaving while they're gone, and then it's back to spell preparation.

It takes a bit of coordination and Gervail has to raise his voice to get one of their kids to pay attention, but they manage. Within half an hour, the couple arrives in the parking garage, looking around for Adarin and Isabella.

Of course, they weren't aware of the effects of traveling to this plane. Once they arrive, a small penguin appears near Gervail.

Yerena gets a cat, dove-gray with white socks and more white at the throat.

"What," says the cat.

"What," agrees the penguin.

Gervail looks at his new daemon with confusion, sidetracked from his mission of finding Adarin.
prodigal_miser: (k. Not the way I'd planned)

[personal profile] prodigal_miser 2014-05-01 10:54 pm (UTC)(link)
"Fuck," says Adarin in English, when he spots and recognizes them.
prodigal_miser: (l. Are you certain)

"Possibly one of those, yes. They're from New Kystle."

Gervail glances up at the voices, and addresses them.

"Hello, Adarin - and Isabella, I think? Sorry we couldn't arrange this in advance so we weren't so startling -" (He glances at his penguin) "- or startled, but we only just learned where you were."
prodigal_miser: (i. Paranoia is necessary for survival)

[personal profile] prodigal_miser 2014-05-01 11:02 pm (UTC)(link)
"A pity," says Adarin, looking incredibly uncomfortable.

A pity that they found him at all, not that it took them so long to find him.
prodigal_miser: (g. Think about this more)

"It's certainly an option. I'm not sure how much I like running, however. I want none of them to ever come after me, not - hide in a warded location for the next century until they're all dead or have given up," he says quietly. "But if this goes badly we can do that."

[personal profile] aestrix 2014-05-01 11:11 pm (UTC)(link)
"Ahem," says Gervail, annoyed. "There's no call for that." He motions to Isabella's bow. "We mean no harm, we don't know what that girl did to spook you, but we'd like to try convincing you to come back."

[personal profile] prodigal_miser 2014-05-01 11:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Adarin has a reply to that, but he refrains from using it. It would not help, satisfying though it would be to say it. Instead he takes a deep breath, forces on a poker face, and says, "I am not accusing you of being uncivil, but all the same, I would prefer not to go back. Thank you for the concern, but my talents seem better suited here."

It is in his very best frigidly polite tone. He's had a while to practice it, it's pretty good.

"Adarin, be reasonable. What happened to your - your civic responsibility?" asks Yerena.

"It is safely intact, just focused in a different direction. Away from New Kystle."

"And towards - what? This - this woman?" accuses Gervail, giving Isabella a contemptuous look.

"This unknown quantity," chimes in Yerena. "You've seemed very resistant to - to wooing of all kinds in the past and the fact that - this is what succeeds is very odd, Adarin, suspicious."
prodigal_miser: (n. Lost my temper)

[personal profile] prodigal_miser 2014-05-01 11:38 pm (UTC)(link)
"Doubtful," he replies softly to Isabella in English, giving Yerena a cold look. "But feel free to defend yourself, I continue to dislike these people."

"Suspicious? In what way? Perhaps I have exotic tastes."

"It's not like magical or - or herbal methods are all you have available," points out Gervail.

His penguin makes an agreeing chirp, preening her feathers. She's getting used to existing, though it's still strange.
prodigal_miser: (m. Troubling subject)

[personal profile] prodigal_miser 2014-05-01 11:47 pm (UTC)(link)
"And what," growls Adarin, "other methods are you accusing her of? She's innocent of them all, I assure you. Because she hasn't done anything 'discourteous' to win me over."
