"So, how's Obsidian?"
Sinis and Lucas Ragen were sitting in Sinis' lab, discussing their future families. Sinis crossed his legs as he set his arm on the headrest of the chair, and the other arm on the counter surface, a glass of red wine in his hand. He slightly shook his leg, whilst Lucas had removed his mask, and ruffled his hair. Lucas was enjoying a glass of Merlot, and lowered the glass from his lips and responded:
"She's doing alright. Pregnancy takes about seven months for her. I think there's about three to five months left. You can imagine my anxiety and nervousness. Ah, yes, I heard that you recently participated in the 'Impossible Time'. How does it feel? Lucas leaned in and waited for Sinis' response.
"Well, it's kind of great to get that evilish side of me away, I guess. You know I actually just realized that there are two hundred forty types of tobacco...very interesting, no?" Sinis rattled on, taking another sip from his glass of red wine.
"...Yeah, that's inte-" Lucas spoke.
"No, WAIT....Two hundred forty-THREE." Sinis looked around and blinked, adding: "You were saying?"
"...Nothing. Actually, how are you and Nellie doing?" Lucas replied, finishing his glass of Merlot.
"Oh, you heard about my marriage proposal? Yes? Okay, then word got out fast...well, yeah, I'm pretty psyched for the wedding. Still haven't found a wedding planner yet...I don't think Zia would, uh...want to, after past events, as you know." Sinis sheepishly looked around the room as he lowered his leg and placed both hands on the counter surface.
"Yeah....I don't know if she'll forgive you. I'm sure she will. I can always help out, you know? Despite my personality, I can be quite the worker." Lucas grinned.
"How so?" Sinis raised an eyebrow.
"I'm the one cooking and working at home now, since Obsidian's pregnant. Yet I'm probably going to be cooking forever now, so I can maybe prepare some food for you. Do not underestimate my culinary skills." Lucas held up a finger, smiling.
Sinis laughed, and replied: "I sure won't. And sure, why not, cook your best. Probably going to have a private wedding like your's...Nellie doesn't know a lot of people, so she'll just prefer to have friends around." Sinis set his empty glass of red wine on the counter top.
"..Remember when we first came and sat down in this very Lab...we said that we would never have a future ever again?" Lucas suddenly brought up.
"Yes, I do remember. I was still rather...well, optimistic back then, though even I doubted myself of finding a partner. You too. You were so pessimistic, mysterious, and dark that I started to think you had a worse life than I did." Sinis joked.
"It's not a proud thing to have a worse life or not..it's quite a shame. I feel rather sorry for you, and yet you joke around about it. How can you be so calm and happy now, even when your entire race is dead?" Lucas questioned.
Sinis grinned, and leaned in, whispering: "I'm getting married, dumbass, that's how."
Lucas rolled his eyes as he looked at this Vambrace Time, and then reached out to grab his mask.
"I better get going, Obsidian will be wondering where I am, and I don't want to keep Alice hungry." Lucas said, the mask hissing and whirring as it locked into his armor.
"Speaking of Alice, how is she?" Sinis asked with curiosity.
"She's fine. Recently a bit down, she does know about Yuri's death. So, Obsidian and I are trying to cheer her up. She's got a little bit of angelic power and watch...you do know that. Not just Carmen, but Cassiel too." Lucas said, approaching the door while Sinis followed to see him out.
"Yeah, speaking of Cassiel, I'm planning to break him out...Hades is a bit boring now. And I prefer to be on the good side again, I guess." Sinis shrugged.
"Good to know, I'll let Obsidian know. Do some more good, Sinis, and you can make up for everything you did wrong." Lucas waved as he stepped out, the door sliding shut.
Sinis blinked and approached the coat rack, taking his aubergine colored frock coat with a velvet collar and pulling it over his grey waistcoat. He yawned as he stepped outside, locking the door to the Lab and walked over to Sinisadel, where his apartment lay.
On the way, he was greeted by many people. Sev had even walked out of his house and waved at Sinis, who responded with tossing a few coins for Sev to buy more cooking dough. Sev laughed and caught the coins, thanking him. Everything seemed happy now, unlike before. Could he really have just ignored all of this before?
After reaching his apartment, he could see that Nellie was lying down on the couch, a book on her face. She had fallen asleep, despite Sinis' remarks about not lying down on the couch while reading. Sinis smiled, and shut the door, walking over and removing the book from her face, leaning down and giving a light kiss upon her cheek. She mumbled and whined slightly, refusing to open her eyes.
"Hey...come on, get to bed. It's late."
The only reply was another mumble, followed by a yawn. Sinis rolled his eyes as he chuckled, bending down once more and picking her up, her head tucking into his chest comfortably. She snuggled in closer and smiled, placing her hand upon his chest. Sinis slowly approached the bedroom, stepping in and setting her on the bed carefully. He pulled the blankets over her, and sat down next to her, placing his hand upon her cheek softly.
Sinis grinned again, and withdrew his hand. He himself was getting ready for bed. After he was finished washing up, he switched off the lights, locked all the doors and windows, and changed into a black tank top and some shorts. He climbed into bed, and scooted in closer to Nellie. He proceeded to lean his chest against her back, and wrapped his arm around her stomach, pulling her in. He rested his head right behind her head, and slowly shut his eyes.
Life is great.
