and I tried to remember how nice it had been
They've settled in with surprising ease, to this new life in Torchline. Out of the woods and onto the beach, Vai finds herself tanned and freckled come LeafChange, living in a comfortable little house with a man as crooked as he is adorable. (And a son who's going the same way). And it's strange and wonderful all at the same time, the witch meandering out onto the porch at the front of the house just as the last of the light bleeds from the horizon.

The hanging lanterns overhead provide enough of a glow for Vai to cut herbs, though - she's got some planters and baskets out front, and she needs a handful of this and that to add to dinner. Food is like a beacon for every part of this weird little family, she's learning, herself included, and she has no doubt that someone will be along soon to see what's cooking.

oh i got troubles that won't let me be, but i won't get tired, set the world on fire
A few things have changed since arriving in Torchline. He’s learned a lot, gotten along well with his reading and figuring things out. He’s also realized that not everyone is kind, to have some form of a guard up — though it helps getting some instruction and ideas from Zeph. But ever since the day the mer had dragged him into the water, he hasn’t been back into the waves. Instead, keeping distance along the sandy shores and perusing the goods at the Port and throughout Haulani.

He’s filled out a bit more, become a true looking young adult, but that’s not what’s arriving toward the home on swift feet. Nope, it’s the bear shift, having scented the food what felt like a mile away, Felix booking it and making a beeline for home. Four black paws fly over sand and kick it up in a cloud behind him, until he can see Vai on the porch and he finally slows, shifting into himself and offering his mom a playfully charming smile — one he’s learned in his time here. “Hi mom! What are we having?” He asks, skipping up the porch and swinging over to her to give her a quick hug, his stomach growling loudly in the process.

"Ribs and mashed potatoes," Vai announces, not remotely surprised to hear the sound of her son's voice as he tromps up the steps. She turns with her handful of herbs, laughing at the sudden hug - she's sure Felix has gotten taller since she saw him yesterday, the witch planting a kiss on his cheek and ushering him inside. "Zeph is out for the evening, so it's just us. And no, I didn't cook any less." She grins - between the two of them (Felix, mainly), she's sure they'll manage.

"What have you been up to?" she asks, sweeping inside after him and clicking the door shut. It smells of barbequing meat and spices, and Vai heads back into the kitchen so she can mince the herbs and add them to the potatoes. "Whatever it is better not bring trouble home after you."

Mmm…” Felix says, accompanied by yet another grumbling of his stomach. He leans into the kiss at his cheek before he pulls away to peer at his mother, slightly taller now with a small bit of a fuzzy beard beginning on his face, something that’s been meticulously attempted to keep under control — with Zeph’s help as of late. Still, at the mention of Zeph being out Felix can’t help but to snort to it. “More for me!” He chimes, a grin spreading across his face, bolting into the house now toward the kitchen and the table.

I’ve been helping out a little in Haulani and the Port. Shouldn’t be trouble.” He offers, cutting his sentences somewhat shorter now due to Torchline’s slang getting to his impressionable mind. “Staying away from the water and just… Working where people need me. The usual! I promise.” The grin that flashes Vai’s way isn’t totally believable, and if Felix has spent time near the brothel or it’s inner workings, he hopes his mother is none the wiser for it.

He grabs a couple of plates and utensils, moving to set the table once he’s washed his hands, before peering back at his mom. “You seem happy.” He murmurs, glad to see his mother has gotten brighter now that the illness hasn’t been rampaging across the region.

"More for you!" Vai chimes back, her laughter ringing through the kitchen, and as her son potters around behind her, she continues cooking, cocking an ear to listen to his adventures of the day. They're predictably vague and innocuous sounding, and Vai doesn't believe them in the slightest. But Felix is staying safe and has learned well from Zeph and the other Torchers, and she knows they have his back. It'll do for now, and she drops a kiss atop his head as she moves to the oven to take out the ribs.

"Staying away from the water?" she echoes. "I would have assumed you'd be splashing around like a fish by now." Because no, Vai still doesn't know the details about that. There's still a little longer to go for food, so she pours them both a drink (it's difficult to reconcile her son as nearly being an adult, but she's getting used to pouring him a bit of wine as well) and plops down at the table.

Smiling warmly across at Felix, she nods. "I am happy," she tells him. "What about you? How are you doing?"

He sets the table, placing plates and utensils down and plopping a seat as soon as his work is done, smiling after his mother as she makes her way to the oven. The smile fades slightly when he realizes his slip, when he remembers that he hadn’t told his mother what happened to him more than a season ago because of the illness that rampaged and the worries she’d had trying to deal with all of that. He hadn’t wanted to add in more.

So he rubs his hand along the side of his cheek, through the fuzz that’s starting to grow there, until his hand rests at the back of his neck and he flashes a small half smile of awkwardness. “I had… An issue at the end of Flowerbirth in the oceans so I’ve just been avoiding it.” He offers, to not leave her hanging but knowing his mother well enough to know she’ll dig and find out anyway.

As for her happiness, he nods, a half smile forming on his face again as the food and wine are dished out, settling in again and nodding to her. “I’m good. I’m happy.” A mimic of what she had said but knowing it wouldn’t last with the comments of the issue he’d come across. “Other than that one time, Torchline has been good.” He avoids her gaze as he goes to reach for some food, to pile it up onto his plate.
