He chuckled, because he knew damn well how difficult it would be between them - not really though - when their kids were in the same class together. On some level he knew the chances of that happening would be slim, but for a few moments, K'rios allowed himself the fantasy of it all. He pictured it with a grin of happiness on his face. He just wanted it, not for himself or A'ric necessarily, but for their children. He wanted to see the two of them live to those very ages and beyond, he wanted them to live rich lives and have happiness every step of the way. He wanted his little girl to have candidacy and Impression, to feel what it was like to have her other half find her on the Sands, to feel the wind on her face as her dragon took flight for the first time on its own.
He a moment he ignored what was going on around him, and didn't hear some of what A'ric was saying because of it. When he finally came to, he shook his head and had the decency to flush and look sheepish as he did so, because he normally didn't become that engrossed in his thoughts, not even about his daughter. "Wow... I'm sorry. That uh... I'm not used to that sort of thing happening. But uh, kids, you know, man? You just sort of fall in love with being a Daddy when it calling comes upon you and it never leaves."
When they arrived at their destination, he was quick to join his friend on the ground, and even quicker to pat his shoulder when they stood side by side, noticing just how much taller he stood next to the bronzerider. "We'll have a good time, good drinks, good food, good games. Come on back, pass out, like I said." He smiled and held the door open for A'ric, whispering as his friend slid through. "Welcome to the lighter side of my world, bronzeboy."
