Junpei laughed softly as Phaedra went on to talk about how to decorate the babies room an that she wanted to do it first. He agreed completely, it would be a great way for them to spend time together, work, and look at their future. Yes, their future lay in a house he had still to find. He hoped it would all come together nicely, it should, he wanted her to be so happy.
"Of course love, I think it's a wonderful idea. And, best of all, we can do it right before the wedding. I think I know what I'm going to choose, all I have to do is finalize some things."
Junpei grinned and kissed Phaedra softly then broke the contact and settled back down. They would be home in about ten minutes by his best time guess, so no need to get up and ready yet. He was peaceful, peacefully relaxed, ready to go lay here all day and not do a thing, sadly life demanded attention right now.
"What do you say, we go home, have dinner, then I can show you to our room and we'll settle in for the night. You need lots of sleep my love, lots of it."
He nestled into the seat and pulled Phaedra with him. The two of them were keeping the other warm and Junpei was feeding her mana softly threw any way he could. He was helping her, he needed one of those mana inhalers to give himself a boost though... it was back at the house in his bag.
He seemed to think it was a good idea really to decorate their childs room rather soon. Not that he or she would be born until July but it was still important that it was done. That way Phae could spend as much time as she wanted making the finishing touches and making sure everything was perfect so that when the time came they would definatly be ready and then they would be able to have their child a home ready to take them in.
He kissed her again and she returned it as she always did and would. She broke the contact and smiled softly at him kissing the tip of his nose gently just for an added effect. He pulled her close and she went willingly as he told her that after they went home and ate dinner he was going to show them to the bedroom so that she could sleep. He was right she did need a lot of sleep. She was tired these days but the teleportation had taken a lot of out her though she was stil gradually getting over that nausea that had over come her.
However, she felt him still feeding her mana and she smiled softly but took his hand away. The one that was feeding mana at any rate. She kissed the back of it gently and placed it in his lap.
"No more, I'm just fine. I'm going to be sleep from here til the little one is born. But it's worth the mana sacrifice to keep her safe and healthy. Besides one of us has to be awake and normal and for now that is you." she said softly as she leaned against him.
She closed her eyes not tired just relaxing as she smiled at him. She hummed softly to herself her left hand over her stomach gently stroking it absentmindedly. She was in love, getting married, and starting a family. Her birthday was coming up but she didn't care. Not in the least. Right now she had so many more important things on her mind to care about that one little thing. She hummed softly and sat there in the limo.
"What about Negi? Tonight, after dinner when we retire, what about him?" she asked.
He tried to argue as she took his hand away from her. He frowned and listened, she was right.. although he wouldn't admit it. He was madly in love and wanting to protect her with all his heart. So when she pushed that away, in whatever form, he got a little but worried and even more protective. He sighed as she explained that ONE of them had to be OK right now, and then asked about Negi. Negi, Negi was going HOME after all this. He had moved in with neighbors and was there, going to regular school and studying magic in secret. The other family had no idea magic was real, not a clue, as far as they were concerned Junpei and Phaedra were flying in and out, not teleporting.
"He'll be staying at his new home, just down the road. He's fine with it, he kinda likes it I guess. I didn't want to do it.. at all.. but.. I'm his only family, and he still wishes he was at the Academy. I've thought about bringing him back a few times.. but he doesn't fit in there, he's just to young right now, and I don;t want to expose him to that lifestyle at his age. Think I'm being a good brother? So far it makes me feel like crap..."
He smiled weakly, was what he was doing good for Negi, he didn't know, but he knew that he didn't like it, and that it hurt to do it. He had no choice though, bringing him to the Academy was impossible.
She smiled as he protested but he knew in the long run she was right and didn't worry about it any more. He seemed to give into her will and she smiled a bit. It was good that he understood. She knew that he was trying to take care of her but she didn't need them both weak all day someone had to be strong when she could not. She was doing her job and it was Junpei's job to take care of her in a non mana giving way.
She heard him tell her that Negi would be going home tonight and she felt a bit bad about that. She figured that he would stay at the house with them for the week they were here but she didn't want to pry right now. She heard him ask if she thought that he was a good brother and told her how it made him feel what he was forced to do to his brother.
"Of course you are. I know that Negi misses you, I can tell but he looks happy. Missing you of course but who wouldn't miss you. You are doing what is best for him and he knows that. Even if he doesn't know it now he will. And.. actually I've been thinking about Negi lately and wanted to ask you something.." she said softly as she began to pick at the cushion between them.
"We're going to have a house. A pretty good sized house at any rate. And I'm sure we'll have an extra bedroom or den or something. Anyway, I was thinking we should have Negi move in with us in Babylos. There are school there where he can train in magic and in regular schooling for the younger kids and he doesn't have to attend the academy until you're ready. So.. I was thinking it would be nice for him to come live with us. Be a family there. He would be part of our family. Not only my brother in law, but our little child's uncle, and he could be there seeing them grow and we could be with him too." she said softly not making eye contact it really seemed like a good idea to her.
Negi.. move with them to.. but he was so... he shifted a bit, trying to sort this out in his mind. Negi moving in with them in Babylos... well that wasn't going to be easy. If Phaedra had panned on... oh great. Junpei close his eyes and sighed, a thinking sigh not a mad or sad sigh. She would understand it.
In his mind he had set up a small chart if you will, a board with how he would work all this out. There was him and Phaedra originally. Two small pictures of them appeared n the chart. Now they had a baby to add in. A small bundled baby appeared below them. That meant at LEAST A four room house. One for them, one for the baby, and one for an office. The extra room would be a guest room. OK that worked so far. Add Negi, loose either the office or the guest room... wait.. he could just move.. and if he chose the one with hte... oh yeah this might work out after all.
He opened his eyes and smiled down at Phaedra, this could work out after all.
"Well, after thinking about it and the choices we have open to us... I think.. it's a good idea. Although I want to wait till the beginning of summer to do it. He's in a regular school here and I'd like him to finish out there before moving in with us. It'll be good for him to have whole summer to get ready and study and what not for his magic school. He's had to study in secret for almost a month, so he's a bit behind in his studies."
Junpei kissed her softly and then looked up, out the window. Sure enough, the gleaming white pillars of the house came into view and eh smiled.
he said as he reached up. The car stopped and Junpei opened the door. He sat up, pulling Phaedra with him and got out. AS Phaedra stepped out Negi came bounding out of the house. He ran straight to Phaedra, not Junpei but Phaedra, and threw his arms around her waist.
"I'M SO SORRY OH I'M SORRY I DIDN'T KNOW! I'M SORRY GOMEN GOMEN GOMEN! I'm so sorry nii-san!"
Phae chewed on her lower lip as he gave that sigh. The one that said he was thinking and logically disecting her idea to see if it would work. She hoped it would she really did. And then he told her that he thought it was a good idea and she let out a sigh of releif. She really thought that Negi needed to be where he belonged. With his family and now that Phae was part of it she wanted him there with them.
He kissed her and she hugged him tightly and excitedly as he let go. She squealed softly and looked into his eyes clapping her hands happily.
"Oh honey! Thank you. It will be great I just know it!" she said with a bright smile
They pulled up to the estate and it was the first time she had really seen the outside of the house. She sighed softly as she looked at the white pillars that stood grandly in front of such a beautiful house. It was gorgeous and she wondered what he would do with it when they moved to Germany and no one lived here anymore. But she didn't say anything on that just yet it was his asset to do with as he wanted.
The car came to a stop and Phae grabbed her few bags that were in the cab and got out. She straightened out her skirt and saw Negi coming out of the corner of her eyes. She figured he was coming for Jun and was completely shocked when she felt his arms around her body and she dropped her bags purposefully to wrap her arms around the boy. She hugged him tightly to her and ran her hand up and down his back soothingly.
"Don't you worry about me, I'm a tough girl you just ask your brother I could take him out in a moments notice." she chuckled softly but her voice was sincere and soft. Tears welling in her eyes as the boy seemed to now accept her. "I'm glad you'll let me be part of your family, Negi." she said softly.
She nuzzled into him softly and hugged him tightly but not enough to hurt him because as strong as she was it was a definate possibility. She pulled back gently and chuckled as she brushed his hair back from his face. He was so like his brother it was so cute. She chuckled.
"Junpei and I have talked and we have a lot of things to talk to you about. But for now why don't we go relax. You're brother near walked my legs off today." she chuckled as she took his hand gently and picked up her bags gently. "Come show me this house." she said to Negi.
Junpei was overjoyed, Phaedra was overjoyed, Negi was a bouncing idiot... oh yeah happy family. Laughing a bit Junpei moved to the trunk and grabbed the other bags, with eh help of the driver, and together the two of them got all the bags inside the house easily. Meanwhile Negi Took Phaedra from room to room, sowing here everything. It started off simple enough, a simple entryway which she had seen. To the left was the living room they had been in earlier, to the right was a huge kitchen. In the kitchen was a door that lead to the basement, the one they had come up earlier but then turned and gone straight into eh living room. Behind the living room and kitchen was a hallway than ran across the house. This was split three times. Far right was a pantry, middle was a bathroom, and on the left was an office.
He didn't show her upstairs, which could be reached by going straight threw the entry and up a flight of stairs. Up there was all bedrooms. At the back of a ten foo t hallway sat the parents room. Five feet down was the boys room on the right, where Negi and Junpei had shared a room. To the left of that door was the guest room, done up in dolphins.
"Well everything in Phaedra."
Junpei said as he tipped the driver and then closed the door. He sighed and went into the living room where Negi and Phaedra already were. Negi on a small seat Phaedra on the couch. Junpei sat down next to Phaedra and smiled over at Negi.
"End of the school year, then you can come and join us bro."
"Hai, dinner is ready. I'm going to go home and get my own, see you two tomorrow! BYE NII-SAN!"
Negi yelled at the front door slammed shut.
Junpei said as eh wrapped his arms around Phaedra. He led her into the kitchen where a vegetarian dinner waited for the. Squash, potatoes, yams, and broccoli all done with spices and different sauces. Southern, yet vegetarian to.
Phaedra was led around the house her hand taken and held firmly by Junpei Jr. She chuckled as he showed her every room there was turning on the lights so she could see and taking her everywhere but the upstairs but she assumed that was just bedrooms anyway. She smiled as he led her back to the living room and finally let go of her hand. He seemed to know now that she was going to be his sister at least that was what she thought the nickname meant.
She sat down on the couch she had been laying on earlier as Jun came back into the room. He told her that all her bags had been brought in and she smiled softly as she turned to Negi. Jun gave him the BIG news and he didn't even blink he was hungry and out the door waving goodbye to her.
"Bye kiddo." she chuckled softly.
Jun helped her up and took her hand before he wrapped his arm around her waist. Negi it seemed had cooked her dinner and Jun led her into the kitchen where a feast was laid out for them. She smiled. It was all vegetarian. She smiled brightly and kissed Jun's neck sensually for a moment as she moved away from him to take her seat. Tucking her skirt beneath her she sat down and began to serve them both some of this and that.
"This looks wonderful. We'll have to do something really nice for Negi tomorrow. An amusement park or something." she said softly as she looked over at Jun. "I'm .. I'm so happy he likes me." she whispered happily.
He smiled as she gave him one of those sensual kisses and he hummed softly in his throat, almost a happy groan. He kept her go as she started to serve them and he sat down next to her, he got his own plate of rabbit food, yes rabbit food he would always call it, and dug in. It was good for all veggies, probably a helluva lot healthier for him than his usual meals to. He dug in happily and was excited that Negi had worked things out in his head, he always did.
"Mmm he has school tomorrow, here in the states they go to school for Monday and Tuesday, I got him out of school today so he could be here, but he has to be there tomorrow. Wednesday we can do something, but tomorrow I wanted to sleep in late, have a nice relaxing day to show you around the countryside, and maybe have nice quiet dinner alone on the back porch, sound good?"
He said just before taking a nice big bite of squash. This was really good, he didn't know Negi could.. wait was that a... NEGI YO LITTLE CHEATER! An open spell book lay out the counter, from here Junpei couldn't make out the page but he guessed what it was, one of his mother's magical cook books, the ones she ALWAYS used to make dinner seem lieka five star restaurant.
"Oh and Thursday it's just going to be you, me, and Negi for Thanksgiving lunch, we'll watch your first American football game afterwords. Detroit and Dallas, big rivalry game, you'll probably hate it but hey, it's tradition around here!"
And it was. Football and thanksgiving in the states went hand in hand, and Junpei could always remember cheering Dallas on, only cause Detroit managed to beat the Falcons one year.
that was true. Negi would have school she hadn't throught about that. She wasn't used to American traditions she had never had a Thanksgiving before. They didn't have those in Germany obviously if you knew what it meant for the americans and what it stood for. She smiled as she began eating the food that was delicious. She didn't notice the cook book or anything just ate the delicious food.
"Well then, I think it's a great idea. To sleep in and to eat dinner together spending the day just the two of us. I want to see where you have lived your life." she said softly as she kissed his cheek before taking another bite of sweet potatoes and smiled.
Negi was good at this. She hummed softly as she ate quite a bit. Thing about what he had made was it wasn't only just good but it was also light on her stomach. She finished her plate easily and sat back with a smile rubbing off any sauce that had made its way to her cheeks. She smiled softly as she took a sip of the water that was on her table.
"So then, now that we're done eatiing what do we do?" she asked getting up and beginning to set all the dishes in the sink so that she could wash them in the morning. She sat down in his lap gently and placed her arm around his neck and smiled at him.
"All alone in this big house.. it's going to be night time soon.. what ever will two people do?" she asked softly as she kissed his neck softly and ran her hand down the center of his chest.
He finished his own plate soon enough and she finished before him, naturally, but she had finished her plate! Yay, eh was so excited to see her eating this! Note to self grab magical cook book on your way out the house so she can eat like this ALL the time. He was about to suggest they go watch a movie or something, or maybe turn in early when she came over and plopped down in his lap and began to kiss his neck, horny girl. He grinned a bit as her hand ran over his chest and he bit his lower lips softly, trying to resist the urge to take her now. But what in the world was up with her? Yes normally they playful teased each other for awhile, but never like this.
"Someones a bit motivated tonight."
He said as he wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her closer to him. That short skirt was still on, damn you Phaedra. e leaned back in the chair a bit and smiled as h let her work over his neck and keep her hand on his chest. Dinner and a show, well he was in the show but, dinner and a show? Oh how wonderful! Yeah if you could call making out after dinner a show.. well maybe it was maybe it wasn't.. ya know what screw the show. He turned her head to face him and kissed her deeply, his tongue snaking out to enter her mouth he dominated her and his right hand found her butt while his left hand held the small of her back. he gave her a playful squeeze and kept leaned back. She was always so good at this whole give and take game.
Phaedra smiled as he began to react to her. It wasn't that she really wanted to make love again it was more that she loved him and wanted him to know. He turned her head and kissed her deeply and she let out a soft moan as he grabbed her ass tightly and herback. She moaned softly as her tongue moved out to meet his and she held herself to him tighter.
She broke the kiss gently and looked into his eyes. she smiled softly and kissed his forehead gently. Her hand stroked his cheek as she locked eyes with him wondering if they would ever have that same magic they used to when they looked into each others eyes. She smiled softly and closed her eyes gently. She kissed him gently from the forehead down to the tip of his nose.
"Junpei Taltos. What do you say we go to bed and maybe watch a movie or tv. Cuddle and spend time together. Or..." she said as she kissed his ear gently.
".. you can come find me in the bathtub." she whispered in his ear her breathe running over his ear as she rose from his lap and sensually walked out.
She went up stairs slowly making sure that if he was watching like she KNEW he was he saw every shake of her full hips as she went up the stairs already unbuttoning her shirt and cast it off on the landing wearing only her tank top on her torso now. She hummed softly as she headed to the master bedroom and walked right through it and into the huge bathroom beyond. Just as she expected. A huge soaking tub. With some fancy netherfire work she lit some candles that were around the bathroom instead of using the light and then filled the bathtub with warm soothing water and waited on the side of the tub as she undressed extremely slow gettiing ready for her bath and watching the door as she stood up letting her clothing fall to the floor and sat down into the tub.
Watching the door she relaxed in the tub and placed one of her now wet legs over the side dripping slightly on the floor in a truly sexy pose as she leaned back and sighed relaxing in the warm water. Wondered silently how long it was going to take him to come.
Junpei smiled threw the finishing kiss and listened to her ideas. Good so she was up or a movie after all. This was just as he had planned. anice evening alone, maybe some popcorn later tonight and then a nice, quiet evening of sleep and dreaming happy dreams. Of the future and of the life they would share after this wedding and baby. He was smiling softly, up until that sensual voice asked him to join her in the tub. As she got up he just stared forward, then turned and watched her hips sway and he had to grab the table as he went ek in the knees. Oh god damn she was good at what she did. He watched her round the corner and he followed right after. As he rounded the corner she was up the stairs and he caught her shirt coming off. His eyes widened a bit and he started undoing button on his shirt as he scrambled up the stairs. Crap the stuff in the hallway, and he had to lock the front door, and all of this before he could do anything. He jumped the stair, hit the landing and rolled into the entryway. He groaned softly, not a good idea.
He locked the front door, closed up all the drapes, cleaned the kitchen up a bit, and put the cooking book away. He scrambled back up the stairs, grabbing her shirt as eh did, and slid into the bedroom. Already he could see the soft purple light from the bathroom, and he grinned devilishly. He stripped down to his boxers quickly and walked into the bathroom, and hit the floor as he tripped dover his own feet. God she was sexy with her leg over the tub. He got back up with as much grace as he could muster and slid his boxers off. He slipped into the warm water across from her, gritting his teeth just a bit as the warm water his his cool skin. He felt his muscles relax as eh slid shoulder deep and let his legs run against Phaedra's.
"Good idea love, good idea."
He said as he tilted his head back and just soaked. Sore muscles, constant work out, and the days walking caught up with him as he soaked there. His muscles finally let go of a days tension and the nether fire made it just dark enough to e sensual yet soothing. He smiled as he rubbed his leg against the inside of her thigh and closed his eyes.
It seemed to take him a while to come find her in the tub. Perhaps she had picked the wrong room but he would find it if he wanted to she was sure of that. She heard him doing things downstairs and she smiled as she lay her head against the cool marble of the tub and sighed softly. She then heard his feet pounding up the stairs and she chuckled sitting up right again and resumed her sexy pose.
His clothes were shed save his boxers and she chuckled softly as he nearly fell right on his face getting in. She felt so bad for him. Did she look that good? She smiled up at him as she watched the boxers fall and then he stepped into the water and sat next to her. She lay her head on his shoulder and kissed the crest of his shoulder gently before she just closed her eyes and let it stay there.
She whispered out a moan as he began to rub her thigh with his leg. She smiled knowing that the idea of bathing with her was turning him on or he wouldn't be doing this. She chuckled inwardly as she nuzzled into him more. She turned her upper body slightly so her breasts pressed up against his upper arm and her hand ran up and down his chest exploring his sculpted chest and kissing his shoulder softly. She loved him. Loved him very much it wasn't just a physical thing either she really loved him every bit of him.
"Hot water feels good doesn't it? Letting your muscles relax. I'm glad you decided to join me." she whispered softly as she lay her head on his shoulder again her hand still exploring his body.
He smiled softly as her hand began to roam over his chest and side, up and down over nd over. He adjusted his neck a bit to get more comfy and sure enough he found that spot where he was in a state of pure bliss. Her pressed against him, the warm water soaking his tired muscles. His body relaxing around him, and sex not the first thing on his mind. He sighed contently and nodded at her questions then decided if he didn't respond in voice she might not understand just how relaxed he was.
He said in about the most sensual and thick voice he had been able to produce yet. Comfortable? Oh that was an understatement for him, he was in heaven, on cloud nine, sitting in the lap of luxury right now. Huge house, nice big tub, loads of free time, and his wife to be right here with him. Yes life was good.
"If I wasn't so damned relaxed I'd kiss you.. eh what the hell."
He said as he brought his head up and then leaned over, kissing her lightly on the lips. He held it a few seconds before he let the kiss go and he slid in a bit more, almost laying down now. He let one hand wrap around her waist and rub the skin at her waist under the water, his other hand slid behind his head to act as a makeshift pillow and he yawned softly, oh yeah, relaxed, in love, and the luckiest guy ever.. yay life was good. Best of all he had the most amazing in the world right here with him, enjoying every moment just as he did, and living the life he knew she deserved.
"So, how long do you plan to let me soak here like this? If you wait to long I'll be asleep."
