"Oh."

It was not the sort of question that Vega would have asked, if she had known that they were supposed to be asking questions. It was not the sort of question that anybody should have asked, really, in her honest opinion. What a waste of his self-declared talent on what could only be described as the most trivial query ever to have been raised to the cards.

Despite her scorn (a feeling that was fast becoming familiar when it came to him), Vega decided that she was better off keeping her thoughts -- which were namely that Avery Elliot's question was as boring as he was, and a waste of both his time and hers -- to herself. She still desperately wanted to know what the unfamiliar images and names on the cards all meant; it made little sense to insult him so openly when he had the answers she needed.

It wasn't a criticism, then, that she threw at him next, but a genuine question that she forced to fall carelessly from her tongue, "What do you think that means, then?"

"Addy!"

A moment of silence from Kurt as he sat on the couch with baby Lophie on his lap.

"Addy!" It was louder but not quite a shout. He didn't want to ruin the happy mood their little girl was in.

"Adelaide!" He used the full name - he meant business.

Once she finally listened to him, he looked to their girl. "She's said her first word."

When she looked back, she first noticed how the sunlight flitted along strands of blonde hair, shifting delicately through the leaves above them. The second thing noticed was the irritation on Nashira’s face, and Téo quickly returned her gaze forward. She blew out a frustrated breath, both at her situation and what she could only guess were nerves that settled and prickled in her chest.

Téo bit her lip. She didn’t know what to do.

She knew that she was trying not to think about the kiss. Not compare it to the others she’d had, with boys, except that it had contrasted so sharply with the others she felt too disoriented not to compare. To not wonder if it was because it had been a girl or because that girl was Nashira Nettlebed. To not wonder why Nashira had reacted the way she had, leaving in a rush of anger.

But she did know that she didn’t like the younger girl being upset, particularly if it was because of her. Téo had felt an instant need to move forward and smooth away Nashira’s annoyance, to ease what she thought might have been hurt, though she couldn’t be entirely sure that’s what she saw in blue eyes (she still thought maybe it was).

Most of all, she was confused about the whole damn thing.

Téo's footsteps slowed then, making up her mind. Instead of letting Nashira come up beside her, Téo halted completely, spinning to face the other girl head-on. It turned out to be a mistake, as she caught blue eyes and froze immediately.

It lasted maybe a second too long, before she took a quiet breath in, settling her composure. She didn’t reach out for the other girl, even though it was her first instinct, instead, she held Nashira’s gaze.

“Tell me what I did.” Téo bit her lower lip then, almost afraid to continue, “Why did you leave?”

"I'll leave that to the Apollo kids." He shook his head, but a smile ruined any illusion of seriousness. "I would prefer not to fall out of a tree just because you want to capture me so you can laugh at me later." Because that was exactly what would happen.

"Did that Ares boy share any strategies for tonight with you?" This was a question with many meanings. There was an ironic dimension to it, for Athena rather than Ares ruled over war strategy for a very valid reason. Teasing, too, was involved, for Adam was sure he had seen the boy in question trying to flirt with Mari on more than one occasion. This was fine, of course, as it was a mere observation, but he was most certainly the friend to tease her relentlessly about any romantic prospects. It would be a sneaky approach to figuring out the plans of the opposing team if Mari had as vapid a brain as some of her siblings, but he could never seem to be sly around her. It was definitely not anything else.

She nodded as he promised to baby proof the house, but she disapproved of his huffing and sighing and his general attitude. It was just so unnecessary. Addy smiled softly as Kurt agreed immediately to the fact that he wanted more kids. Of course it caught her slightly off guard, especially with the speed he spoke at.

She looked down at Lo, who was looking up at her with those little wide eyes, and that face smiling up at her.

"I do." She replied, as she looked back at him, "Of course I do."

Victory was a fluttering thing, alight in his downcast eyes for the silence she answered all his questions with. Avery suppressed the roll of his eyes, knowing it would only further aggravate the girl, though it was his own disinterest in arguing about Divination than concern for her turbulent emotions. Instead, Avery did as she suggested and promptly forgot the swords, deciding they weren’t much to remember anyways.

(Perhaps if he had known her question, he would have been more inclined.)

When prompted, Avery - briefly - considered lying. Not that his question was overly personal, but tarot was always something personal. It felt like giving a shred of himself to her and Avery was positive that would only result in having that same piece never returned. It was his mother humming ‘Karma comes back knocking louder than it left, Avery’ that stopped the outright lie.

“I asked what advice I was ignoring,” he said. Then, because he wasn’t actually very good at forgetting, he added, “Two of swords came up in mine as well.”

"Yes, yes, I'll babyproof the house, I got that." He huffed, nodding.

He wouldn't admit it but he'd completely forgotten that it was his job. One of them were usually always watching Lophie so it wasn't like she'd gotten into any trouble before..

Except now she was mobile.

"I do want more kids, yeah." Kurt agreed quickly with no hesitation. "Don't you?"

Addy looked over at him, their tiny daughter in between the pair. She watched as his face morphed into one of confusion, and his words only emphasised that.

She gave him a look of obviousness, which meant 'how do you not understand this?'. He then proceeded to cover her tiny little ears.

"Ze baby proofing was your job?" She asked, as she looked at her boyfriend, "You want more kids?"

She lifted Lo up slightly, so the little girl was sat in her arms, sat up, holding onto her body. Addy grinned as she stepped closer to him.

Now this wasn't the first time that they clashed in terms of language. Sometimes Kurt doubted that Addy even knew English, and then the other times he doubted that he knew English.

"What?"

It was more of a reaction than a response before he looked at Lophie and reached down to cover her little ears.

"I said why didn't we have kids sooner and you said it was my job. Why you goin' on about baby proofin' the place?"

"Yes!" Replied the blonde, with a tone that made it seem as though it was blatantly obvious-- simply because it was, "You 'ad to babyproof ze 'ouse."

She looked at him in confusion.

"What?"
