Caelum slept the whole time thinking of Sia...he tossed and turned a little honestly because he wanted to go in the bedroom and lay with her not for any sexual reason but just to hold her because it was nice to have someone to divert his attention to besides the damn corporation....
He slept well as the sunlight crept through the window
Caelum woke up ....he couldn't remember the last time he had slept so good
Sia wakes up, sitting upright in bed and stretching. She produces a yawn, and then scratches her head. Taking a glance around, her eyes rest on the clock. She was tempted to doze back off into sleep, but yet she knew she should get up and deal with the day. Grumbling something under her breath, Sia slowly rolls out of bed, one foot at a time being placed onto the floor. When she stands, she gives another stretch, and then walks out of the bedroom. Slowly, she comes to a stop as she nears the kitchen, and then freezes. There was someone on her couch. Blinking, it takes Sia a moment to remember. With a nod to herself, she continues her way into the kitchen and then fills a glass with water.
"Are you hungry?" Sia decides to ask Caelum before taking a sip of the water.
"Yeah.... I am a little hungry thank you for allowing me to spend the night" he says standing up and looking down into her eyes as he was a little taller then her.
He gave a gentle smile. ...and then turned away noticing what she had on he didn't want her to think he's leering at her
Sia gives a subtle smile before whirling around, and opening the fridge door. As she rummages through the fridge, she replies, "Not a problem~ I owed you for what you had done for me the other night. I could have lost my life or something to those guys," she giggles. It was somewhat funny to Sia, because it wasn't something that worried her. Even if they had tried, they wouldn't have succeeded. But it was actually really nice to know, and quite reassuring, that there are people like Caelum out there who aren't afraid to step up for others. And Sia greatly respects that.
"So, what would you like? are you okay with eggs?" she asks him, closing the door slightly as she glances over her shoulder to look at him.
"Go ahead," Sia shrugs as she begins cracking several eggs into a bowl. "I told you to make yourself at home~" she chimes, smiling brightly at Caelum before returning to her cooking. It was somewhat strange, though, having someone in her apartment for this long. Sia has friends. But none of them have ever stayed over night or anything, more or less decide to wash up.
Caelum washed up...thoroughly he wanted to make sure he was presentable to Sia...
He had smelled the breakfast and in an act of clumsiness his pants fell into the shower where they got wet and dirty.
Crap...I can't wear these now...I can't go out there with no pants on....jesus...he thought
So he stepped out with the towel around his waist tightly. ...and walked to the kitchen...
"Hi Sia now don't be alarmed my pants got completely wet" he says trying not to look at her as he steps into the kitchen with the towel on....
He didn't look at her because he finds her attractive and didn't want a subconscious physical reaction. ..
Sia looks at Caelum and blinks once, and then twice. She produces a barely audible giggle and then sets a plate of food down onto the small table for him. It's not like she had never seen a naked man before, considering she's been alive for over a thousand years. She's seen plenty. Though, she's never done anything with them. That's not what being the immortal soul is about.
"I hope you like the food," Sia says, trying to move the conversation away from the current one.
Caelum smiles and begins to eat the food and the food tasted amazing as you could see due to the expression on his face.
"Wow this is better then any breakfast that i have ever tasted and i have gourmet chefs that work for my father" he says
As he digs into the food as he is hoping the food never ends but he realizes that it will eventually.
Caelum finishes the plate in record time.... and washes it too...
"Thankyou so much Sia" he says
As soon as he goes to hug her the door breaks open and soldiers comes in..."SIR YOU HAVE BEEN SUMMONED" some soldiers say
Caelum looks at Sia apologetically he forgot he is tracked at all times by his father.
William comes in...(William)"We have work to do son... why are you here you didn't come home and when we summoned you earlier you didn't respond" he says looking around... but began to insinuate what Caelum was doing.
(William) "Oh and who is this young woman" he asked looking at Sia
"You have my apologies I believed my son might have been in danger" he says
Startled, Sia takes a staggering step backwards. She catches her footing before falling, and then blinks. Her gaze moves from her destroyed door to the soldiers, to the man who was apologizing, and then over to Caelum. She gives what could be seen as a scowl, and her fingers curl into fists. Relaxing somewhat, she responds to the man, "Don't worry, I can understand that a parent would worry about their child."
Caelum is embarrassed and angry with his father for such a display of force....it was his way of controlling him showing him that no matter what he couldn't escape the grip his father had on his life.
Sia may have been able to contain herself but he was not cut of the same cloth...he was visibly trembling he was so mad.
"HOW DARE YOU INFRINGE ON HER HOME AND RIGHT TO PRIVACY GET THE HELL OUT OLD MAN AND TAKE YOUR STOOGES WITH YOU" he yelled
A soldier cocks his gun and Caelum already knew who it was who readied their weapon ...a soldier by the name of Marson who was one of his father's prodigies you could say he matched Caelums skills if not surpassed them as well...guess he didn't like the stoog comment but William raised his hand and Marson lowers his weapon as he and Caelum exchange glares....
(William) "my dear son is that any way to speak to your father....old man with the goals we are trying to obtain may eliminate disease and death due to old age altogether when we..." he began to say but realized Sia was there...
"Again thank you for understanding we will pay for the door..." he says to sia as he notices her eyes...."have we met before young lady those eyes look awfully familiar? " he asked as he was turning to leave
Sia looks confused for a moment as she replies, "I don't think so? Unless we've seen me out walking on the streets before?" she tilts her head somewhat, beginning to run her fingers through her hair. She remained perfectly calm. And seemed genuinely confused. She's been alive for thousands of years. She knows her way around these types of situations. But, despite Caelum's. . . kind. . . to put it nicely, attempt, she still couldn't shake away the thoughts. The thought that he's the son of the man who has been on her tail (literally) for too many years.
"But thank you for the offer to pay for my door, you honestly don't need to~" Sia chimes, beaming at the man, her smile spread from ear to ear. She stands tall, hands cupped behind her back. "I'm sure I could scrounge up enough cash and dig through the couch for loose change." She gives a playful giggle.
Caelum watches his father and soldiers leave. ....
"Get home safe son beware of wild animals" he says to him...
Caelum immediately turns and apologized to Sia
"I'm so sorry I'll clean up my clothing. ..patch up your door and then be on my way" he says embarrassed at what happened that he could not look sia in the eye
Sia wasn't really one to hold grudges. The longest she had ever been angry at someone for was two days. And that had pained her. But just because Sia can't hold grudges, doesn't mean she has no enemies. That much is clear. And she still couldn't shake off the idea of Caelum being his son. It made her shudder, and her eyes lower away from him for a second. They then return to his attention, and she puts on a gentle smile. Genuine. Warm. Full of sincerity. And this smile matches her tone, "Don't worry about it. You're. . ." she thinks about what she's going to say for a second. And then she continues, "You're welcome to stay anytime~"
"It's completely up to you," Sia replies with a slow shrug. She finishes cleaning up the mess from breakfast, and then sighs as she decides she should probably do something about her door. There was no way Sia could just leave her door laying on the floor, and her apartment wide open to the world. "This sucks," she huffs, brows knitting together as she folds her arms over her chest. Then, with a sigh, Sia lifts up the door and rests it against the wall.
Caelum had work today even though its a Saturday
Besides he had training on top of that.
He went to the door after cleaning his clothes. ..and looking at the broken hinges he pulls out a combat knife and twists the screws in place at the base.
He couldn't fix the lock but at least the door was upright. ..
"It won't hold forever but it should do for the moment. ...I'll stop by later and bring tools to fix it permanently and the lock" he says as he was quite the handyman
He may have money but having a military father he grew up fixing things with his own hands no maid or average worker did much and if they did Caelum was right there learning. .
