At the cabin Star was cleaning up after supper and Eric grabs Ru before he can race to the living room wearing a good portion of his meal.
“I think its bath time for you little man.” Ruarc squeals wanting to run but Erik lifts him easily and tosses him over a shoulder. He pauses, watching Star as she sets out coffee cups and napkins.
“Princess.... are we expecting company?”
“Yes.... we are....”
Meras head pops up from the book she was reading at the table. “Who Mama Star?”
“I dont know yet...” Star sets out a plate of cookies she had baked that afternoon.
