They quickly learned some things about Rae, she was smart, almost scarily smart, and the computer quickly became her most favorite thing in the house.
“Is the cake ready?”
“Cool.. are they coming too?”
“Chris has to work, but Hayle said he would try and come by.. I think he is a little shy.”
“Yeah, you are the first child he will actually meet.”
Rae loved the idea of her uncles. She had met Chris, but Hayle had oddly enough stayed at home with some random excuse.
“Uncle Chris told me Uncle Hayle has horns.. does he?”
“Yeah, he can choose to now show them, he can even turn into a dragon.”
As soon as Ilari came home, he found himself dragged into the kictchen and ordered to blow out the candles that had been put on the cake waiting for him.
“Why the rush?”
“I want to taste it.. it’s been standing in the fridge all day!”
“Ah.. well, let’s have cake then.”
He looked over at Nat, who just smiled back at him, even though she hated the fact that he was aging, she knew it was something she had to deal with.
“So.. how is the cake.”
“Awesome.. will you teach me mom?”
Nat was still getting used to being called mom. She knew Ilari was looking into the family she came from, but info was hard to find due to them being locked with this cult. The cult was well known for being nice to it’s children, but what the truth behind it all was, that was something no one really knew.
“Of course, it is a very old recipe too.”
“Very old, I’ll teach you, and someday you can teach it to your kids.”
Rae nodded, before going back to her cake piece who magically seemed to vanish in seconds, leading to the question of her having another one.
“But that is the last one, we can save some for tomorrow.”
“Besides, maybe Hayle wants a piece..”
“Oh my god, you have horns like mom said!”
Hayle had been a little surprised by the immediate hug he received from the new resident of the house. Nat had warned her she had a slight obsession with meeting her dragon uncle, but he wasn’t quite prepared for just how many questions she had.
“Can you turn into a dragon?”
“No, I don’t want to ruin the house..”
“Awwww… can you show me someday?”
