"Oh. That seems like they should instead have a reasonable number of rules."

"Perhaps they should."

Squirm. He wants to go be with Brother, Brother understands why there are rules.

"Do you like tickling, A-Zhan?"

Permalink

"Don't know." 

Permalink

"Do you wanna?"

He flops encouragingly on the floor in front of A-Zhan's mom, arms lifted for easy access to his ribs. 

Permalink

A-Zhan's tiny ears turn pink. He leans forwards out of Mommy's lap and... pokes? Pokepokepoke?

Permalink

Wei Ying giggles and wiggles. 

Permalink

!!! He will poke more!

Permalink

He laughs and thrashes around a little; not enough to risk thwacking A-Zhan or his mom, just a little flailing. 

Permalink

A-Zhan keeps this up until he gets too embarrassed and has to hide his face in Mommy's knee.

Permalink

Wei Ying's laughing trails off into giggles and he finally sits up, still catching his breath. 

He looks speculatively at A-Zhan's mom. 

"Are you fancy enough that I need to ask Mommy and Daddy before hugging you?" he asks her. 

Permalink

"I don't think so, no!"

Permalink

Then he will hug her and A-Zhan at the same time!

Permalink

Awww.

eeeeeeeeee

After a little bit of very nice hugging, Lihua says that she's going to go back downstairs. Do they all want to stay up here?

Permalink

Hmm. 

"No. I want Mommy and Daddy." 

Permalink

Then they can all go down together! Lihua scoops A-Zhan up and leads the other boys downstairs.

Permalink

He runs up to his mom and hugs her. 

"Mommy, when you fell off your sword and into a tree, were there birds in the tree?" 

Permalink

"There weren't anymore after I fell into it! There were some crows, but they all took off when I hit. 

--Lihua, I'm sorry about what I said earlier. Changze pointed out to me that, uh, you actually had to deal with all that and me freaking out about just the idea of it wasn't helpful. I, uh, probably wouldn't have survived as long as you did. You're stronger than I am in some ways, I can't handle feeling trapped, it's why I came down off the mountain in the first place."

"Ah. I appreciate you saying so," she says carefully. "The Lan were indeed lucky that they weren't tasked with trying to contain you."

Permalink

"I probably would have just killed myself before the question of whether or not they could take my baby from me was ever relevant," she says quietly so the kids can't hear. "Not even out of despair, just throwing myself against the door and whatever wards there were until it broke or I did."
