You Might be Their Father, but We're Their Dads ~ Tag: Talen/Kate

Not the large stone caverns that Weyr people are used to, these are buildings built on the top of the cliff, sometimes referred to as the Weyr Cliff. These buildings are all the same size, with multiple apartments for dragonriders to live in in each building. Because of space constraints, dragons sleep in large pavilions built around the dragonrider apartments.

Cas was a nervous wreck. He knew he shouldn't be and honestly, he felt more than a little stupid that he was. This was his own brother, for Faranth's sake. He'd known Anlian literally all of his life. Then again, this was his and Talen's children being affected by his brother's visit. He didn't want to think about how he'd feel if it was some stranger that was coming to meet his children...children they had given up before they were already born.

The brownrider huffed, a habit he had when stressed, as he adjusted the position of the vase of flowers on their table a few more times. Keeley and Canaan were playing quietly in the living area on the rug with the wooden dragonkin set their father's had gotten for them on their last Namedays. Even they were in a more subdued mood. They knew what was happening today and they knew who Uncle Anlian really was. When they were still babies, Cas had spoken to Talen about not wanting to lie to them about where they came from since it wouldn't take them long to realize that they could not be both Talen's and C'sian's biological children.

Anlian was supposed to be there by early evening, but the waiting was killing Cas. Not even the calming words of his brown was helping him to not be so nervous. There were a lot of things that needed to be spoken of between himself and his brother... or perhaps they really didn't have to talk about anything. Cas and Talen were engaged now, but he wasn't sure how Anlian would take that news. "Shards...where is your father..." He asked impatiently as he flopped down onto the couch and rubbed his tired face. Talen wasn't there yet and Cas was getting very anxious about this.

Sensing her father's stress, Keeley got up from playing and sat next to him on the couch. A skinny arm wrapped around him lovingly as she rested against him. "Don't worry, Dad. Daddy will be here soon." She assured him. He gave her a crinkled smile and then leaned down to give her a kiss.

Talen did not think he had ever been so nervous in his life. Cas' brother was coming to visit them, and the twins, and the Quartz handler was still not exactly sure how he felt about it. They had agreed to let him come, but as the day had come closer, he had found himself becoming more and more anxious. Quickly, he tried to push those thoughts out of his mind. Finishing this up was his top priority. The longer this took, the more he couldn't be with Cas before the meeting.

Finally he managed to push those thoughts away, although they were quickly replaced by other thoughts, although ones of a better nature. They were engaged now. Honestly, he was a little shocked by it still. Sure, he had expected it to come sooner or later. The two of them had been together for Turns. While it was also true that the Quartz handler had always thought this would happen with Esca, he found himself glad that he and Cas could now spend the rest of their lives together. He was getting to marry his best friend and that thought just tickled him to death.

Finally, after what seemed like much longer than on any other day, he was done with what he had needed to do, and quickly took care of Khonlen before heading home. Cursing under his breath, he loved as fast as he could. If he was just nervous and anxious about it, he could only imagine what Cas was going through. Right now, all that mattered was getting home to his fiancé so that they could get through this together.

Finally he arrived hone, walking on and taking his shoes off, putting them where they belonged before heading into the living room to find Cas. The look on the man’s face said it all and Talen offered him a small smile and say down next to him, taking his hand and giving it a gentle squeeze before leaning in and kissing his cheek. ”Sorry that took so long. I can be ready in a few minutes, I just need to get myself cleaned up.”
