DEIMOS

After cleaning their region, after slaying behemoths, after letters and notices and notches, the eternity of subsequent lines might’ve yielded another pursuit of diligence and turmoil. Deimos and Evie could’ve equally stayed within the thresholds of Halo for decades and eons without the slightest opportunity to take a moment – but they’d also learned that it was impossible to run on endlessly, with nothing but apprehension awaiting them.

So, when the timing was cast, they arrived back in King’s End, within the cabin that had held exiled and disgruntled beings looking for a way to defy the world, to newlyweds hastening their love in an assortment of places. Now, it seemed to be a stronghold and a safety net for naught but their family – and the arrival along their doorstep set an ease to his shoulders that could’ve been long lost.

Hitching Erebos higher into his arms as he turned the doorknob and walked in; just as they’d left it, he turned back to Evie, a grin brightening over his features as the infant squealed in delight. “Lunch or swimming first?”

EVIE
the light of dawn is coming
During tenuous times of the past, the Wardens had historically lingered in Halo's reach, reluctant to be away during a pivotal moment. Over time they've both encouraged each other to live while the living is good, and now is as good a time as any. The Family are inexorable, seemingly without flaw or weakness, and their march on Caido has been steady but slow. To trust in the habits of the enemy is usually a fatal error, but this is the only reprieve they may be granted in the coming seasons.

Once they've arrived, any lingering concerns fade away, and the opening of the door feels like the closing of another that will hold against the tide of worries now firmly shut out of sight. The memories in these walls and along this shoreline bring a smile to her face long before Deimos turns his own over his shoulder to shine upon her.

"Swimming first, doesn't matter if we can heal away cramps if we get in too soon after eating, and we'll just work up an appetite by swimming anyway." Water safety means little with magic, but Evie can't help the doctor that lives in her brain sometimes, and she wants to enjoy this immediately. Might as well make themselves ravenous with their fun so they can emerge pleasantly worn and on the hunt for nourishment.

DEIMOS

Deimos historically had difficulty closing those doors; in drawing the lines away from the hovering trepidation and the inevitable dread, yearning to instead make plans and manifest decisions, contort into machinations and spill calculations across paper until exhaustion took hold. But it would serve him no good to invest so wholly into the malice around them, and not cherish everything they’d built.

So at Evie’s decision, he smiled, nodding in accord and agreement. They could all change relatively swiftly, and he ensured Erebos had his own swim trunks for the occasion, before snagging at towels, and draping them over his shoulder. “Burgers sound good. With fries?” To already start the stir in their stomachs as they made their way to the lake, but he'd happily take other suggestions, Deimos listening to Erebos gurgle in response, and settling their things down by the shoreline.

Then he sat both of them down in the grass, tending to the infant’s arms and shoulders, intending to create and supply floaties on them (resembling ducks, to be appropriate with the current situation). Even if he’d never be out of either of their arms, the Sword valued safety above all else.
