Yer Kelpie’s Cute

ealfricrorikson:

The two were shooed away with an irritated flick of the hands and they took the dress with them. Mister Each bent over the bath and offered Murienn a smile, pulling a group of selkie maids to stand next to him.

"I have to leave you for now, I’ll just be organising a room for you. These three will see to carrying you wherever you want from here except the submerged levels. It would be better to go as high as you can as the top levels are cleanest. I love you, morsel."

The kelpie stuck her head out of the tub with a stubborn, “No.
She was too proud to be carried. Let alone by herbivores.image

Murienn remembered how Rogan walked through the swamp, even though it was dangerous. And he was made of fire! No, she was not going to be out done by water.
"Each’s son walks around in dangerous water. He doesn’t have anyone carry him." It was then she said something that was similar to an idea- "I’d rather wear human ‘boots’ than be carried around."

cutie-toes "You have someone you consider a mother? Is she nice?" the storyteller was happy to hear the little fairy had such an important figure in her life.

"Ah- Y-yes, yes I do!" Hopefully, she could say enough to satisfy the storyteller’s interest, without giving away just who it was… 

"She’s very nice, yes. And great at advice… and she’s not judgmental at all. I think she’s wonderful." 

At Keirin’s words, Navi’s smiled widened. She held the other’s hands, only for a second- then, without warning, Navi pulled her into a tight hug. 


"Thank you, Keirin." She murmured into the woman’s shoulder. "That means a lot. Though, I think you might already know her, ha-ha.." Navi couldn’t decide- should she tell her? 

Keirin was confused by the sudden show of affection- but only for a moment, and she quickly returned Navi’s hug.
But what did the fairy mean by “you might already know her”? Keirin tried to think of all the people she knew, and if Navi knew them as well. It didn’t seem like there were many… Wait. The hug? “Know her”? The way Navi described her mother?
There was a click in Keirin’s mind.

"Um… Navi… is it strange, that for a moment… I thought you were talking about me?" the woman asked with a small laugh in her voice.

the-helmaroc-king1 Crossing his arms, the human Helmaroc narrows his eyes at the storyteller. "You know, I had a feeling Thalia enjoyed watching me suffer. But you? I'm surprised at you, Keirin."

the-helmaroc-king1:

cutie-toes:

Keirin grinned cheekily. “I don’t like watching you suffer- I like seeing a job well done.”

Helm pushes himself up with his hands so he was sitting up a little straighter. Before he takes the bowl from Keirin, he eyes it warily. This was ice cream? It didn’t look all that special. Still, he was tired, hungry, and he didn’t want to disappoint Keirin. After all, who knows where she’d managed to find this ice cream.

Helm takes the bowl into his own hands. He could already tell how cold the ice cream was by how cool the bowl was. Curiously, he scoops up a spoonful and pops it into his mouth.

He was not disappointed.

The ice cream was cold, instantly soothing his heated body. It was sweet, almost like sugar, but it was also thick like milk. It was exactly what he needed after a long day of hard labor.

The first bite goes down quickly. So does the second. And the third, and the fourth. Seemed like Keirin’s warning about not eating it too fast had gone unheeded.

Watching Helm eat ice cream was as entertaining as watching him build. First! Suspicion. Then the attempt. Realization! Ecstasy! Relief!
-wait a minute, he took those bites rather quickly.

"Ah. Um Helm. You don’t want to be eating that fast. It’s not going to end well…" Even in human form, it didn’t seem right to tell Helmaroc what to do. So Keirin sound unsure of what she knew to be true.

thalia-and-lestat "K-Keirin? I w-was wondering... C-Can we talk? J-Just y-you and me? Please?"

thalia-and-lestat:

cutie-toes:

The storyteller raised a brow, but motioned the girl to a nearby table to sit down. “What do you need to talk about, dear?”

How could Keirin be happy at a time like this?! Because she was a genius, thats why. “…Y-You’re right… W-We could… But really… Even if it d-did break the deal if one of you st-stepped it, I don’t… I couldn’t forgive m-myself if you got hurt… And wouldn’t h-he be able to come back again and keep on hurting?” she asked. The girl hated to be the downer, but they needed to figure out the facts.

Keirin still held onto Thalia’s shoulders, her eyes were gentle and her voice was solemn. “In life, we can only do our best to keep those we love safe. But in the end, that is not your responsibility. Most of the time it is not even the responsibility of the person- life is just that cruel.”

The woman’s hands had moved to hold the younger girl’s. “What you did was very brave, and your wish bought us time. But what we are up against cannot be stopped by a single person. Someone might very well get hurt- and we will do our best not to let that happen. And if it should… I would feel more remorse about you feeling guilty for something that isn’t your fault.”

Hortensia tapped her non-existent foot as the explanation sank in… “Let me get this straight, because of their requirements you always have to keep using magic for them to do their work until our Sire arrives? That’s tiring to even think about.” She furrows her brows, “I wish I could lend some of my energy to assist, but I doubt either of us know how to do that…”

With a tad of embarrassment she adds “I definitely haven’t learned it, and I’ve been looking through his tomes. If you want, we can use the chu jelly to put some pieces back on the temple wall; they actually make an excellent glue-like substance!”

Keirin shook her head adamantly. “I’ve read about those types of spells. Even if I felt confident in my abilities to use magic, I would not dare attempt it. The repercussions for sharing energy are too severe.”
Being a storyteller had proved a boon in learning magic, as reading up on spells and their effects tended to be confirmed by the stories. Though this was also a curse, as it made the woman hesitant to try and magic.

Keirin laughed, “Don’t worry, it’s not exactly my forte either. Luckily we have stalfos that ‘know’ how. Some smaller fixtures were knocked loose in the fighting, maybe some chu jelly is just the thing we need~”

the-helmaroc-king1 Crossing his arms, the human Helmaroc narrows his eyes at the storyteller. "You know, I had a feeling Thalia enjoyed watching me suffer. But you? I'm surprised at you, Keirin."

the-helmaroc-king1:

cutie-toes:

Keirin grinned cheekily. “I don’t like watching you suffer- I like seeing a job well done.”

The man could be found sitting against a nearby tree. His eyes were closed, and there were beads of sweat on his forehead. Working to fix the Forest Temple was much more difficult than he’d anticipated. Helm blinks his eyes open when he hears someone approaching. Even though he was tired from the work he’d done, he still manages to smile at the storyteller. 

"I have to say, if I was born a human instead of a Helmaroc, I don’t think I’d make a very good builder."

Keirin returns the smile, and kneels beside the man. Gently, she wipes away the sweat from his brow with the hem of her sleeve.
"My poor Helmaroc, you look so tired. I think you’ve more than deserve this," she holds out the bowl filled with mounds of cold ice cream. Kerin’s smile is still bright, as she excited to give the bird this delicious reward. "Don’t eat it too fast~"

Keirin grinned cheekily. “I don’t like watching you suffer- I like seeing a job well done.”

Helm tilts his head a bit at the storyteller. Ice cream came in different flavors? For a moment, he thinks on all the possible flavor scenarios there could be- beef, fish, pork… Helm could only imagine what kinds of flavors ice cream could come in.

However, Keirin had already said that ice cream would be harder to get. He didn’t want to make things too difficult for her by asking for a meat flavored ice cream. “Vanilla would be fine, thank you.”

"Then I’ll be off." Keirin said with a wave. "I’ll have your ice cream for you by the time you’re done." And with that, she left the newly formed man to his work.

——Time Skip——

It was late in the day, the sun just beginning to set. Keirin had spent her day in search of ice cream for the honorable Helmaroc- or at least her monsters had. For all she knew; in a pyramid far away, someone was missing their ice cream. 

She approached the man with a bowl of vanilla ice cream with a spoon. Even if he didn’t finish the work today, Helm would still be tired and hot- and ice cream was the perfect way to fix it.

onyourgoat A large man sat waiting in the dream, with black hair and faintly grey skin that looked as cold as frostbite. He had a bowl of nuts in one gloved hand and was slowly munching on them. He didn't seem all the intimidating, just patiently waiting for the dream to end so he could wake up. "Oh? It's not often I'm joined. Hello, whoever you are." His pale-in-black eyes tracked the woman.

morgandefay:

cutie-toes:

Well this was… unusual, even for a dream.
Keirin approached cautiously. She gave the man a slight curtsey, though she didn’t remove her eyes from his.
"How do you do?" She replied quietly. The woman wonder if should she say something else to this strange dream man? Oh right!
"My name is Keirin. Pleased to meet you- whomever you are."

The man rose and took her hand, bowing over it. “And you, ma’am. Maybe once I become king I’ll visit your world.”

Keirin laughed meekly with a “Maybe.” And with that, the dream slowly began to disperse.

FAQ - quickly while I have a connection

My internet has been crapper than it usually is. 
So I’m sorry if things take longer for me to get to or if I miss a post. I’m especially sorry if my internet eats any outgoing messages.
