Karla sat in front of her loom, a tangled web taking shape in front of her, her eyes distant and unfocused, looking at the in between in the threads, where Craft danced and prophecy lay. An image danced in front of her, fuzzy and indistinct, but growing clearer with every thread she added. The Ebon-gray at her throat glowed with a soft inner light, illuminating her face and hands as she worked. But she didn't see it, didn't see anything other than the vision unfolding in front of her.

A cradle, festooned in streamers of blue and silver, sat in the nursery. Out the glass balcony doors, the sun rose and set, rain fell, snow flurried, leaves changed. Seasons came and went, months ticking by. As time passed, the cradle was filled with toys and blankets, some worn and well-loved, remnants of Kayla's infancy, others still new, colors bright and patterns unfaded. On the wall above the cradle, a moon waxed, never waning, growing rounder and rounder with the passage of time. And when it was full, the light coming in from the balcony was warm and gold, and flowers grew along the edge of the doors. Baby pink roses, dark blue irises, purple trailing wisteria, and thick-headed peonies nodded at Karla through the glass. Later spring then, or early summer.

For a few glorious moments, everything was lovely. And then dark clouds rolled over the sky, darkening the room. Time continued to pass now, but the cradle remained empty. Dust gathered over the crib, the toys, and the entire nursery. Neglect and disuse hung over the room, like the streamers that hung limp and tarnished now, untouched. Outside the doors, the flowers withered, turned brown, and died where they were.


Karla came back to herself slowly, spiraling up from the depths of her vision. She needed to talk to Warren. If she was reading her vision right--and she was, she knew she was, she was a fully-trained Black Widow--if Kayla didn't have a younger sibling by the summer, she never would.

Nommy.

Ender was out for a walk, Big Val was holed up working on her manuscript, Little Val was sleeping, and Ben was bored.

Ring, ring, Karla!

"Ender never greets me like that," Ben said, laughing. "I think the fire's gone out of our relationship."

"Val is amazing and brilliant," Ben said immediately. "Ender's exploring a potential new calling and I'm making baby toys."

"They might work for Kayla," Ben said. "They're for developing her Force sensitivity. And Ender's still kind of thinking about it, but I think he'll end up doing it--it's called Speaking. It's truth telling at a funeral, more or less."

From: [personal profile] trigons_child
Raven, ever the empathic eavesdropper, felt a flash of anxiousness from Karla and immediately started to make her way to workroom.

Karla? she tried to think to her friend. Raven didn't have telepathy herself, but if she opened up her thoughts and Karla was listening, she could get her message through. What is wrong?

Date: 2015-11-10 10:42 pm (UTC)
trigons_child: (Curious)
From: [personal profile] trigons_child
Pfft. Raven had already teleported herself right outside the door. "A vision?" she said as she came inside. "Not of any danger, I hope."

Things had been relatively peaceful as of late, at least as far as she knew. But Glacia being Glacia, and Karla's uncle still out there somewhere, it surely couldn't last.

Raven stepped closer to Karla. "Family planning?" she repeated, tilting her head. "You are not pregnant again, are you?"

She resisted squeeing. Another baby to spoil!

trigons_child: (Fingers to lips)
From: [personal profile] trigons_child
"You are young and healthy," Raven said, frowning slightly. "You should have plenty of time to have another child." But she knew the truth of visions, since she had them herself from time to time.

"Perhaps you need to practice," she teased, smiling again. "You should find Warren and do so." The stress and pressure of worrying about it could potentially make things more difficult, so she wanted to try to keep things lighthearted.

*riiiiiiing*

Dinah had news!

"You won your side-bet that he'd ask before Christmas!"

So no butt-kicking necessary! Besides, it was such a cute butt.

"Sunday evening he finally got the words out, I nearly fell off the balcony."

Helena had seriously thought they'd never get it together at this point. She was still occasionally going "engaged" like it was a word in a foreign language.

"Oh, she totally said yes." Dinah was bouncing around the gym now, because she needed that mini-trampoline to express her boingy feelings. "He took her roof-top running, if you can believe it. With a special harness so she could trapeze after him. I think he was afraid if he tried to ask her in the Tower again, they'd get interrupted and he'd lose it completely." She beamed and bounce bounce BOUNCE onto the balance beam. "And asked her on top of One Police Plaza, because that's where they met."

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! had been Dinah's reaction.

Dinah cackled. No other word for it. "Kind of both? I mean, once Barbara kicked us off the comms--"

And there had been so many kissy noises anyway.

"--she was asking the Delphi Circuit to pull up the calendar and figure out the best possible weekend for a wedding in 2016. By the time they were back at the Clocktower they'd started this disgustingly cute argument about who to invite and crimefighting seasons and real-life schedules, with these weird little detours they keep taking into where they're going to hide for the honeymoon." Dinah took a breath and flipped off the beam, still grinning hugely. "You are, of course, totally invited, once they get their collective act together and quit smiling at each other like they're on laughing gas."
