Closing my eyes, reaching into my gift, I sing.
"Try that." I ask, sitting back once I'm done. "Should do to be going on with."

Kiou slid into a seat beside Sori as she looked Liv over. "I find it displeasing that you are back in an unharmed state. For all that you have done, I would have preferred you armless at least." Not that she would ever admit it but it had hurt her deeply that Liv had left her as well. She had thought that she finally had found a leader to follow only to find out that Liv had left. So much she had looked forward to receiving for saying her life only to be felt as though she too were cast aside.

The hint of comfortable amusement I'd been beginning to feel is drowned in Kiou's words. Turning, I meet her eyes, and hold them.
"An arm would have given me far less pain to lose than what I lost, girl." I cock my head, studying her. "I hurt you. I see that. You are still angered with me."
I'm doing this wrong. I should be showing compassion. But it is hard to have much sympathy. She thinks I failed her. But she did not feel this. She cannot understand. And she has no right to judge me. Not now.
"I regret that." I state, relenting. "And I regret that in all this time, you've still not learned to check that wild current of a temper."
I turn back to Sori. "Sorry about the injury. It's been there some time; your body's forgotten the way of it when it was whole, and so I had little to work with. You ought have seen a doctor, really, they could-" I trail off at Liam's warning glance. I'd forgotten. Sori hates medical people; not surprising after what she went through, I suppose.
I've forgotten many things, it seems.

I close my eyes, shuddering theatrically. "Yes, actually. Wheelchair with spikes and a deisel engine. Nurses hiding under the beds. Knitted gun holsters. My sympathies for any elder home that would take the risk."

I smile, a slight turn of the lips. "It is good to hear. And it is good to see you again. All of you. It has been too long."

"Oh not much of note." I say, trying for a light tone. "Starving though." I step into the kitchen beside Sori, opening first the fridge and then the cabinets with growing dismay. "Hai mai. Soda and beer, rice and canned things and spaghetti and pizza and cereal. This is barracks fare! You lot eat worse than teenagers. Amazing you don't have scurvy and rickets into the bargain." I tap the refrigiratior. "Something edible, please."
A much more pleasing array of fresh milk and fruit and vegetables along with the soda and beer. There's a trout on the top shelf. The sight makes my heart clench. He taught this house to know me. To know my likes.
I shouldn't have come here. Everything in this place speaks to me of him.
I pull out an orange, and sit down, peeling it.

I smile slightly, my eyes on my fingers again. "Time is an odd thing. I must be....about a hundred and fifteen now, and it seems a little time. To you, it is an age. Odd."
Another bit of peel falls away.
Then something she said gets through.
"And what is this family you speak of? I thought you were alone these days."

"Ugh." I wrinkle my nose at Sori's words. "She's still after you? Really? That's disturbing." To keep us off the painful subjects, I ask the crude one. "And I suppose the sex change didn't get taken into account?"

I allow a ghost of my old smirk to curl my lip "Really you two are talking about how you are so old/young. I am around 1200 give or take a decade so what are you pups whining about" I then start gathering things to make a proper meal. A semblance of normalcy well our normalcy welcome. I can talk to liv later

It surprises me. By the end of the meal, between the two of them, Sori and Liam have me smiling, laughing. Almost in our old way. Almost.
It hurts. But it is good, too.

"Are you implying that I'm senile?" I retort with mock indignation "somehow the comment of respect your elders seems as tasteless as her outfit when she met uou last time."i reach over and snuff a small candle that was burning in the window and pocket it before washing the wax off and returning to cooking. "it will be no banquet tonight but something homey and filling sounds unreasonably good. Kiou are you willing to help?" It seems cruel to me to leave her opinion out of what is homey for food since we are all home.

"If you would like my assisstance with the meal preparing, then I will comply. ". Standing, Kiou silently went to the fridge to begin pulling out the fresh fish that was in there. Sushi seemed a fitting meal since the fish was so fresh. Laying it out, she began to expertly fillet the fish.

I watch Kiou's hand motions as she fillets the fish "good to see that your skills are not confined to the katana" I compliment then grabbing an apple I smirk and call "Liv! Heads!" tossing it over my shoulder at her "I do t want to have to try and think of something to out do the food. Coloring prank" before I start cutting ingredients for a couple of cold dishes I know.

"Both my mother and grandfather agreed that if I could not fillet a fish that was not moving, then I would never be able to flay a moving man." She finished her fillets and checked for bones. Confident that there were none, she basked in her work a moment before placing the fish on a plate and putting it back in the fridge.
