"So," wonders Blair, a little over a week later, "how attached are you two to the house?"

"It's very cozy," says James, raising an eyebrow. "Hit by Volturi-induced wanderlust already, brother?"

Permalink

"Yeah, kinda. We don't need to be as close to human civilization as other vampires do, and we should probably take advantage of that."

Permalink

"I'm a little concerned about raising my daughter homeless in the woods, Blair."

"We can build a house," he points out.

Permalink

"...knowing Aurene I think she would get a kick out of helping us build a house."

Aurene has been playing with brightly colored blocks this whole time. ... Possibly her recent obsession with them, and stacking them, has some context, now.

"Yeh! Canada!" she declares, beaming.

Permalink

"See, Auri agrees," says Blair, smugly.

Permalink

"... Why Canada, sweetheart?"

Permalink

"Mmmm. Nice!"

Permalink

"And also very secluded, with lots of nice wilderness and no one around anywhere nearby if we go far enough north..."

Permalink

"Sounds good to me. And we're burning this house down?"

Permalink

"Ideally! There are too many little Auri handprints in weird places to just leave it."

Permalink

Yvette has a long suffering look on her face about her family's desire for arson.

Permalink

Pet pet pet. "We can make a prettier house next."

Permalink

Sigh.

"Is that one going to be burned down once we're done with it too?" she grumbles, but since she's not actually arguing against it, that probably means it's fine. Just distasteful.

Permalink

"We'll cross that bridge when we get to it."

Permalink

"That's a yes hiding in a trenchcoat pretending to be a maybe." Siiiiigh. "But yes, fine, because it's practical."

Permalink

"Canada!!!" says Aurene, who is clearly just fine with burning her childhood home down.

Permalink

This is probably not an overnight endeavour, anyway, so they can say their goodbyes to the house, keep whatever they want to keep, et cetera.

Permalink

It is not! There is some planning. Fortunately they all have super vampire strength and various other magical abilities. They can put things into some kind of storage, or have Yvette copy things, or pack them away into easily carried boxes. Yvette is a little bit grumpy about this, but cooperative.

It is a couple days later when they are ready to burn their house down. Blair is kind enough not to make Yvette make the petrol for it, he mysteriously shows up with it instead. And matches.

Permalink

Sigh.

Permalink

Pet pet pet.

Fire!

Permalink

Aurene gets to drop the match!

"Eeeeee!" she says, gleefully.

Permalink

SIGH.
