Steven sits by the window seat, watching the sky overhead and the world go by as he is so fond of doing. Rey is curled up on his lap, though not asleep.

The sky he's watching right now is growing darker, as the sun has sunk below the horizon but twilight is not quite over yet. The sky covers the world in an inverted bowl of pink and purple and steel blue. Where the clouds catch the light, they seem to be literally lined with silver. In the distance, he can make out a flock of small birds in silhouette, flying inland. Possibly Starly or Wingull, he thinks to himself.

He turns his attention to the Glaceon beside him. His shimmery fur shines pinkish-grey in the dim, dying light of the evening and Steven runs his fingers through it, admiring the length and softness of it. Rey shifts slightly with a soft purr, before leaning against him happily.

As he looks down at little fox, he catches sight of the engagement ring on his finger. Holding his hand up, he admires the ring for a while, smiling softly as he remembers everything that happened because of it.

No matter what happened, this ring carries an interesting story, doesn't it...?

He touches the ring briefly, then looks down at the egg on his lap. It is wrapped up carefully in a thick white blanket, to incubate it. Steven peels away some of the blanket to have a look at the egg. It isn't moving or doing anything yet, but he wasn't really expecting it to be. Giratina only gave it to him a few days ago and some eggs take a lot longer than others to hatch. Holding the egg close, he rubs the shell of it gently with the blanket, just to keep it nice and warm.

I hope you hatch soon, little Sableye. I want to be able to welcome you into the world. It's exciting when a Pokémon egg hatches...!

Turning his attention back to the twilit sky, Steven leans against the window with Rey and the egg snuggled beside him.

*A while after Steven has his reverie, his other half walks in from the kitchen while cleaning a glass tumbler- evidently, he's been doing the washing up.*

Angel...?

*Steven smiles as his other half approaches him and he hugs the egg close to him- he's always warm, after all.*

Sunbeam...?

*Sets the glass tumbler down on the coffee table before sitting opposite his other half on the windowsill, taking a moment to gaze at the last remnants of sunlight over the hills before it disappears.*

Can I get you anything?

*Smiles and looks up at him as he comes to sit beside him, still clutching the egg closely. Rey gets up and goes over to Steven, looking happy to see him. Steven watches his Glaceon move with a smile.*

He really likes you...

I wouldn't say no to a cup of tea and a biscuit, sunbeam...~

Green tea, I assume?

*Picks Rey up as he trots over, nuzzling him for a moment before hugging him close to his chest.*

*Rey snuggles up close to him. He shifts so he has his front paws and head rested on his shoulder and is being supported by Steven holding his back legs and behind. He nuzzles into Steven's neck, looking happy.*

Coming right up~

*Still keeping the Glaceon close to him, he saunters off into the kitchen. Not terribly long later he returns, holding a small tea tray with the desired tea and biscuits rested upon it, which he sets down on Steven's lap. He takes a seat again while gently stroking Rey's fur.*

Enjoy!

*Steven lifts the egg and blanket off his lap and puts them down beside him, making sure the blanket is covering the egg completely. He takes the cup and smiles widely, before taking a sip.*

Mmm, it's lovely, thank you.

*He takes a biscuit and offers it to Steven.*

Shankyou.

*Takes Rey from his shoulder and cradles him, taking the opportunity to tickle his tummy with a finger.*

*Rey squirms in Steven's arms, making a cute noise that sounds like he's laughing. He wags his tail and kicks his back legs, but it's pretty clear he's enjoying it.*

You're welcome.

*Steven watches his other half tickle the Glaceon and eats a biscuit as he does, happy to see the pair of them getting along.*

*Laughs mock-evilly, before picking Rey up to nuzzle him again. He plants a quick kiss on his furry face, before setting him down in his owner's lap. He quickly glances between Steven and Rey, slowly bringing the edges of his lips up into a smile.*

It's true what they say, you know- about Pokémon and their owners...

*Steven and Rey exchange glances, before both of them look back up at Steven with very similar expressions on their faces.*

What do you mean by that, sunbeam?

About how they look and act alike- you're both very handsome examples of your species, you both have long hair, you both enjoy being tickled and pampered... Need I go on?

And I think I might share a few similarities with Em... we both look a bit more intimidating than we actually are, eheh. We're a pair of woobies...

Steven Stone: smile[personal profile] whisperingsteel on February 25th, 2009 12:17 am (UTC)
Mm, I agree. You both come across as stern, but when someone gets to know either of you, your true sweetness comes across.

[identity profile] i-heart-rocks.livejournal.com on February 25th, 2009 12:18 am (UTC)
Mm. Stern...

I wonder if I was perhaps too stern at times?

Steven Stone: hesitant[personal profile] whisperingsteel on February 25th, 2009 12:41 am (UTC)
I don't know... I don't think I can really answer that, because I wasn't there to see you before you came here.

Okay, I know that sounds obvious to say, but you know what I mean, yes? To me, you've been very sweet and I've only seen your sterner side a few times, when you've needed it.

So I don't think I can give an unbiased answer, sunbeam...

...You were being rhetorical, weren't you?
