I couldn't sleep so I brushed and dressed, got some coffee, my jacket and kissed Lieve as I went watch the sunrise. "Is he OK, Ama?"

"He's fine love. 's just dealing with a lot while he is trying understand, and most of unusual him, all of you. You're all doing quiet well, and he was with my sister, Marnine, last night and that can be unsettling for me. He'll be OK, he just needs make sense of somethings. We are an odd bunch. You wouldn't thinking that we all gravitate one another, but we seem do that exceedingly well. was making things much easier for you all, but of course none of this can just be. are too many people mean see you, and this world, harmed. Together you can deal with this, but that relies upon Daniel trying to keep figuring these thing out from in front of you. Daniel has to focus on all the crap that no one can see, those herbs I have been giving him, are a challenge, but now he knows that Ingrid means to try and kill him."

"You mean along with all the others?" "Ama smiled, and kissed her head as I walked in.

"Marnine is royal a pain in my butt." Ama nodded and that was one constant we all shared. "You got any idea how I can not have Ingrid try kill me, while also not trying to killing her? Marnine was pretty insistent on that."

"Someone could do it, Da." Ama and I both looked at Lieve, and smiled. I didn't want any of them to have to go down that road. I'd do that if I needed to. I supposed that I could wind up doing that, but I hated discussing this crap before breakfast.

"Deat was very impressed with you, lady, which I'm glad because when we get Norway I'm going need you act as spotter again. 's going piss Jake off but you can let him fly one while we're still here." She, kissed me, and went back sleep with Heather.

"You have a pretty amazing family, Daniel." I nodded and help make breakfast while she made more coffee. Hers was way better than mine. " answer your ...question, Manine is my sister... sort of like Cane and Abel." I nodded. We have been using magic for a very long time, way before the Druids started perfecting . Marnine did shift the clans away from war, but she's never been gentle. The problem was that she had grand designs on the family's power, she started helped create that, until you came into the picture. You are like her kryptonite, and you sent her to the one place she couldn't get into much trouble because Gaia always wins. She is trying to create mischievous with you, and Ingrid but Ingrid is very much like Marnine as her as her . You really can't blame Ingrid with Marnine as her . She views you as ingrid's because she adores you Daniel, and has since she first met you. Joseph and I did our best keep you safe because you had a purity that was uncommon. So you can't blame Marnine that she adored you, and transferred your love on Ingrid. She really does know that you are her better half.

Sara walked out smiling, kissed Ama and then kissed as I poured her coffee. "Thank you love. Is true Ingrid is your ?" I told her that apparently was. "Well then we're going have figure something out because you can't kill her."

"I was thinking I could just wound her. I am a pretty good shot." Ama laughed and shook her head.

"Daniel! How could you even think that. You should be ashamed of yourself." I suggested a none lethal poison after I put the table in between us. Sara growled, and shook her head at me, but smiled. "You're something else mister. "Am I taking him the cave today, Ama?" She nodded.

"What cave?"

"'s super amazing and you'll get meet Gaia and go on adventures, at least I did. I know where is because Ama showed. I'm guessing we'll be learning different things, but Gaia' s impressive. Isn't she Ama?" Ama nodded.

"Don't worry Daniel everyone will be fine. Joseph is visiting. He's going get the paperwork for the van in order, and lock the things you might need. I hope you didn't need them because 'd be easier explaining an animal mauling, as opposed gunshot." Sara glared at me. "Not Ingrid, love the sniper's her brother is sending over." Sara got up and sat on my life. Well, then you do what needs done. Dumb sniper's. Annie and Taiiko walked up and curled on either of side of Sara as I finished cutting fruit and put it on the table get more coffee. I heated up the leftover dark rye. The rest of them came stumbling in, wiping their eyes, and yawning.

"I suppose you'll like your peace and quiet back, Ama." She looked at all of us and shook her no. She finished the french toast. I smiled, but dropped my cup on the table as Taiiko I walked over to the closet. I grabbed two 9mm and three clips each as we walked outside to a chorus of WTF. Taiiko and I were in syncing doing this. I always took the forward position, and Taiiko watched my weak side. We never had to speak what we needed. I could see the dust cloud and pushed. I knew was. I put the safety on and pushed in the waist of my pants as everyone came walking up.

"'s Tina and my cousin Steph.... and Stephanie should have something that she wouldn't tell me about." Sara, Em, Lieve, and Heather clapped. "Sorry Jake, but Lieve is going show you how use a drone.... probably too Emily. Holy crap.." They came flying out the back doors and both plowed into me. I yelled "OW!!!!!" as we the ground.

"Guess what, mister?" I said they were getting married. They stared at me, as Sara clapped, and they both punched me.

"I told you that you'd both off. If I didn't have my day job being a wizard, then I could do well as a matchmaker." Sara nodded, in awe. "Would you mind getting off of me now. But I am very happy, assuming we can all get through this without getting shot." Tina and Steph both squeezed be. We want you give us away, but we'd like the ceremony at your place Taiiko, if you don't mind." She cried as she hugged both of them.

"Love, we need figure about your family. They ALL wanted come out but they decided that Sam, and Javier will stay with the girls and Mags and Bet will represent the family's. is too much going on, and might be much of a danger. I looked as her, Jane's and Sara walked., with Ama. I handed Annie my phone.

"Tell your dad, don't ask, or convince, him that will be here. Period. They all nodded. I have do this with Gaia but I am going back with you, Tina. Please bring Yoshi back, and whomever else. I am thinking Kama, and a few others." Taiiko chuckled. "Stop, I have more even on my plate that I needed. It want for us to have the backup." Taiiko nodded and said, "Hai!"

"I don't trust our family in Norway, alone. I need to go with Tina to CO so I can talk with Deat, and Sam, and Javier. Sam is dealing with the shop, and the girls, and also. I can get Charles, and Beth involved with the shopping center, and Javier and Sam. We can set that in motion but Henry and Sabrina half to be in Norway. Ella will . You are their girls, and carrying their granddaughters. is no other answer but yes. Sam and Javier understand. The takes the , even if they don't want .... but not when ALL three of your daughters are getting married, and mom will be .

Ama, walked up and said she agreed. We will be fine having everyone here, which we should anyway because you've been apart long enough. We have tents, the smaller house, and two barns. Daniel, Jake, Haagstrad can stay in tent's and barns. We'll work out. 's two dangerous be in Norway with Ingrid having her back pushed against the wall. ."

"Annie, can you send a plane Osaka?" She said she take care of . She had planes en route for the other clans because they weren't involved, and this was a party, for them. They didn't mingle all that much."

"When are finished with Gaia, Love?"

"What day is it?" They all started laughing as Ama said Sunday by noon, unless he gets lost, which they laughed again. "I want you in of our planes, Love....assuming I can trust you?" Tina stuck her tongue out at me as everyone except Jake and Ama shook their and smiled. "Can you take Steph and show here your new home, and her new Da'?" They both teared, and smiled. "We can leave Sunday night so we'll still have time with each other. If anything happens while in a cave, then deal, but we can work it out. I don't want to have to drag Henry on the plane. They smiled, and nodded. "It's nice to see you two goofballs.

"Did you do what I asked, Stephanie?"

"I did but I had to to use some of my stones because you keep adopting females." I smiled and nodded. "I agreed with you not keeping them locked in a vault. It doesn't mean they get to wear them... just admire them. I enjoy rare, odd, stones, and spectacular as well. You have the bitcoins, as far as I remember." I nodded because I didn't care about it.

"Tina and I looked through all of my friends stones. I'm not sure where he finds them, but you know. You saw them. I chose an amazing selection but I found this one for Sara because she is the heart of this Family. It's a pink diamond. It's decent size, but it's flawless. This is the most exquisite stone. The color hue would be more in line with gold, I know you like platinum, and it's exquisite." She showed it to me and I walked off, and then ran. Steph thought she had down something wrong.

"It's OK Stephanie. These are not easy times for him, but that is exquisite. You did well, Love. It''l be back. He's powerful, but I'm faster." I could feel her bearing down upon me. I slowed, skidded, and turned as I took her completely by surprise. She leaped over me, as I licked her, shifted, and laughed.

"You are an asshole, mister, but you got me good. You are a power to be reckoned with. I forget that. She jumped onto my back as we walked back to Ama's. "Steph picked an amazing stone." I let her down, and took her hand.

"That's not my stone, Annie. I just for with bad peoples' . That's Sara's, and then Melissa's, and finally Hanna's. 's got nothing do with me, Love. She made her choice." Annie was silent. "Doesn't that bother you, Love?"

"How could it bother me, sweets, with you and Taiiko in my life. Sara know things that we can't fathom. I can touch the smallest glimpse of what she sees, but she's still our Sara, and that will never change." Alison, and Jane's, walked up, both nodded.

"You may not know more than her, but do you more than us. Do you have a sense what will be be with Sara? No one here would know anything about Sara." I looked in the sky.

"I'm not sure but I have a sense, which gives me hope, because it'll be longer have than Sara conveyed. I doubt Sara would give up spending time with our , and your nieces. I think she is learning take over from Ama, and that takes time."

"And you?" I shrugged, because I didn't care

"' makes sense that she would take over from Ama, as she's been around for a long time. Will you do something me, Loves?" They nodded. "Can you focus on the gems that Tina, and Steph, picked and talk with them. Stephanie works with gems, and knows the energy, for the person. They younger you than you are that matter more younger women." They nodded. " I don't care, and neither should you...unless you do. If you do, then take the stone you want. You're older." I needed to go pack because I had no absolutely fricking clue what I would be involved in.

"Get use to it. " I sat down and we watched the stars until Lieve came out.

"You're Marnine, aren't you?" She kissed me.

"Go back to sleep, Love. I need to talk with our ."

"Hi Da'"

These women were going to kill me. I looked at myself lying on the side of the bed, next to Lieve and Heather. Shit. I climbed back into a world that didn't seem real to me. Sara rolled onto me, and smiled.

"You're a wizard, mister."

I woke in darkness. Shit! I had stop taking these pill. I could see, barely, but enough. was fire in the distance so I walked toward . I supposed many people lived, and died, around fire at night. I wondered which fate would be mine as I walked into the light.

"I won't kill, Daniel."

"Joseph?"

"You will remember what this place looked like. saddens me every time I need come back here. I had no need , until you met Sara. You couldn't follow Philip and Alison home and spare me the.... well, YOU.

"Am I insane?"

"Yes, now stop speaking and listen. You've wanted me to tell you what the was going on. I left those branches for you bite down on. You'll need them my friend." I stuck my hand in the fire, which was a HUGE mistake.

"What the is wrong with you? Shit. Don't move. Jesus Christ. Hold on...Goddammit. !. Give me you hand. What were you thinking?"

"Are you real?"

"The fire wasn't enough? You never questioned me sitting on the table at Henry's.... at 4am...but now you start wonder. Don't do anything that might cause you harm. You are as real here, as you are with them." He pointed at ALL the girls, even Lieve and Heather. I was barely on the side of the bed. "Sit."

"You are a moron, but you're likable. Why, I don't understand. Where are we?" I stared at him as he slapped me. "Where are we?" Slap! "Where are we, Daniel?" SLAP!!!!!!!!! I was pretty sure he slapped me a lot because i woke with him and Sara talking.

"Hello mister. You need stop annoying Joseph."

"What?"

"Exactly." I looked at Joseph.

"Hold on....." Shit.

"He is a problem, love. I don't think he can be killed. We have to take everyone he loves, one at time. He is the problem. As long as he lives, life will. The way we end this is by killing him. He is digging his roots as we speak." was no fire, but I was watching them talk.

"You have end this if I'll be successful."

I woke in darkness, again, but I was getting used . Shit! I knew where I was. I didn't bother dealing with the, 'others' lurking around me. They were the least of my problems. I walked the light.

"You, are a pain in my ass."

"Hello Marnine."

"Why do you keep annoying me?" I exhaled.

"You know why I am here, again?" Marnine smiled.

"I'm sorry, love. I either have to end you, or I have to end her. ." I understood the angst.

"Will you have tea with me?"

"What do we do now, mister?" Sara smiled as Emily pulled my fur.

"Daniel?" I looked at Chloe and Annie, and back at my hill. I sat as Sara waved at us. I couldn't stop crying. They sat with me, even though they didn't know why. We watched Sara. I wiped my eyes as I stood. I looked at our hill before I turned and walked toward Sara, and my family. Chloe and Annie both punched me, and ran. I smiled, and walked.

I was watching Sara with Melissa, Jake, and Emily. I looked at Ama, and then looked out the window. I shuddered.

"Time is the hardest thing you will have master. 's an iliusion, but is so real that you would die for . Enjoy the time, but.... Wake up, Daniel.

Chloe, Annie, and I watched Sara being Sara. Taiiko waved as she became Lieve and Heather's new mom. These of ours were beyond lucky, even though their lives would be....strange. Jake screamed as Sara and Emily tackled him, and tickled him mercilessly. I couldn't help but laugh, Chloe and Annie looked at me.

"You OK, mister?" I grabbed a breast each, squeezed, and ran toward the back yard. I would never make it but I didn't care. I'd take my penance, gladly, to be able to enjoy this time because I knew it wouldn't last. They both took out a leg and I fell face first into the grass. I barely made it to the lawn before they tackled me, laughing, and biting my legs as I laughed. It was like chum in the water and everyone attacked me, tickling, and biting me, until I turned into the bear, and shook them off, all except Emily. She held tight and whispered in my ear. I turned around and looked at her. She scruffled my ears as I turned to run. Sara was standing in front of us, with her hands on her hips.

"Excuse me!" I knelt as she jumped on behind Emily. "No one has ridden him except Alison, but people were trying to kill her. You aren't getting all the fun. Grab his fur, Love. He's goofy, but he can run." I ran... as fast as I ever had. Sara held Emily until she was no longer scared and enjoyed the ride. Em pulled my ears to tell me where to go. We ran until I ran out of island. Sara hopped off and stepped in front of me.

"What do we do now, mister?" I turned and looked where we came from. "Exactly! Take us home, Love." Sara jumped on and pulled my fur. "Hold on Em." He misses his family. I ran as fast I ever ran. Annie and Melissa ran at us but I plowed through them as we all laughed. Janey was like me. She was mourning her sister. Janes and Sara were closer in age than Chloe. It was obvious that Chloe and Sara were different colors. It wasn't that obvious when Sara and Janey hugged each other. They fought their share of battles. Janey always won, and if it was really bad... Chloe would end it. No one said a bad word to Sara after fifth grade. She was Sara, and she was to be left alone. Things don't really change. I ran with Melissa and Annie nipping at me, and enjoying it.

I stopped as Melissa and Annie shifted, and laughed. Emily and Sara climbed off and scrunched my ears as they laughed. I looked at Janey and Alison. I walked to Alison and butted her onto me. She grabbed my neck as I looked at Janey, and ran inland, away from the sea. She chased me until we faded. We were both fast over short distances. We could run for a long time, which we did until I stopped, and shifted. Janey did the same.

Janey walked up to me..."What, love?" I stared at the sun as it was setting. Alison grabbed my hand.

"You need to talk with Sara about your baby." There was only so much I could deal with. Alison walked up to me, and smiled.

"You met me first, Daniel. Life is odd. You will give us a ." I ran because I didn't want to think about this.....mainly because liked to run.... but because things were falling in on each other. I ran with Alison holding me, and Janey snorting behind us. We ran.

I shifted at the house. Alison pulled my ears, like they all do. I was going to be a mainstay in this family. We stopped, and shifted, as Sara, and Emily, hopped off. They looked around, and smiled. " attention. They nodded." I watched as i looked at me trying be me.

They all looked at me, and I could barely stand it. Janey walked up me and smiled. We were an odd bunch, but we were figuring things out.

I was running out of time. I thought juggling in Denver was hard, that was a walk in the park compared Iceland, and we wouldn't leave for a week. Shit. Taiiko and I walked back the house, holding hands, in silence. Words seemed be an unnecessary encumbrance, especially after what Sara shared. Life seemed be preparing me for a life I couldn't fathom. was starting strip me of everything I loved by taking the one thing that should always be.... Sara.

My brain knew that nothing really died. Energy is a constant in the universe. Heck, is the universe. I wasn't sad because Sara would die. We all die. I was sad because at some point she wouldn't walk me, angry, up me, and punch me in the chest, and then smile. I was sad because I was losing control of my story of how things should be. Taiiko leaned into me as we got to the house. Chloe and Annie had told everyone else, except Jake and Emily were playing with Sara, Melissa, and Heather in the backyard as Lieve plundered the van. She stuck her head, smiling.

"It's Christmas come early, Da'." I nodded, and smiled. I kissed Taiiko before she went meet Lieve and Heather. I walked inside help Ama. Janey passed me and bit my shoulder, as did Alison. Alison had never bit me before but we were all grieving a loss that hadn't even happened. It was as if someone said...."tomorrow, the sun will be gone. Sorry." Our tomorrow was a long time away but the reality was just as stark. Ama was clearing the table as I walked into the kitchen and started doing the dishes.

"Iceland is a hard place of Bjorn. It will get harder for you, as it must. Tempering is never easy. You, all of you, are mourning something you haven't even lost yet. Come." We walked into the sunroom. " how happy she is. That is life, Daniel. Sara is Sara, but she gave you multiple gifts today. She showed you that she will be gone before her time, but you are talking with me. She also showed you how you can keep them safe... that, you will have to unravel for yourself. Now leave the dishes for me and go enjoy your family." I nodded as I headed to the door.

"Ama, can you get diplomatic plates for the van?" She smiled and asked why. "I need to take things into Norway they may not like, just in case I can't figure out another way to resolve my dilemma." She nodded.

"Have Lieve take what she wants. I'll have someone here later to take it to the docks. Load what you want." She smiled at me. "I know it feels like you barely keeping your head above water, but you are doing fine. Remember that, ." I wished I could do that. I walked out back and smiled as Sara ran up me.

"Isn't fall great, Daniel?" She ran back and tackled Emily as I headed the van. I stepped into Happy-ville. Lieve had a Cheshire Cat grin on her face as she walked up and bit me.

"You are picking up bad habits, lady." She said she couldn't help because she was just SO excited. "You need pick a couple, three, because the van is leaving for Norway. 'll be when we arrive." She got serious, like Sara, and nodded. "You need big sister and show Jake and Em how use them." She smiled, nodded, and kissed me.

"I missed you, Da'.... a lot, but I did really well." I told her that Deat was impressed."Yeah, well he didn't show . He pushed me harder than anyone in the class because of you. "I looked at her.

"Deat being hard on you had nothing do with me, sweets. It's the way we were trained. You are hard on the ones can take , have a gift, and you push them until they recognize . Most never do, 's why is more coal than are diamonds, love. He said you were top of your class." Lieve smiled as she hugged me. "He also said you are thinking about going to Quantico." She was silent as she looked at the drones in the closet and started taking the ones she wanted. I waited. I was getting good at that.

"I am good in that world, Da', because I know it from the other side, but I have a family now. I never had that. I am in love, and will have a wife soon. I would be a good agent. Deat knows it, like I know it."

"But?" Lieve looked at me with tears in her eyes because she never had this...in her life. She suddenly had an overabundance of parents loved and adored her. was almost too much bear. Almost.

"But, would consume me. I at Deat and he is SO happy be back in Denver, even though he wants chase whatever you two are working on." I stared at her in awe. "Dad, you're like an old married couple. Melinda knows . I know . Hell, even the girls know . I'm not sure I want do that Heather just because I would be good at something. have be many things I can be good at, right?" I nodded as tears welled in my eyes. was like I was getting experience the end a , times too many.

"Well, you are in the right place to figure things, Missy. Pick the drones you want and you and Heather help Ama with dinner, later, but enjoy the day because it beautiful." She hugged me and nodded. I walked up what was becoming my hill. Chloe was already , and crying. I took out my handkerchief and handed her. She blew nose and screamed.

"Why Sara, Daniel? Why not me, or Janes'?" Sara? Jesus Christ, she is the embodiment of all that is good in this world. This is ripping my heart into pieces and I'm sure I can deal with it." I hugged her because I felt the way.

"She gave us gift, love. She gave us time, even though came with a high . Do you know how old Ama is? Do you know if she even what we , alive?" Chloe stopped crying, blew her nose again, and shook her head no. "I don't either, but she is doing the dishes, and will be making us dinner. I see your mom, and Sara's, on a regular basis. They walk up to like they were coming back from a stroll. Joseph delights in scaring the crap out of me. Are they dead?" Chloe stared at me the way I would stare at myself, if I could.

I have no idea how long she has with us, Love, but you and Janes, and Henry, had her longer than any of us, and you still do.... we still do.... so let's enjoy her. She isn't ours, sweets. We just got to be with her as she was realizing that. We are the lucky ones because we are her family. She knows that. Cry away your tears and leave them here....capiche?" She nodded as I kissed her, and walked home. Annie was waiting for me at the bottom.

"Is she OK?" I nodded. "Are you OK?" I shrugged. She hugged me and did the thing she could convey how she felt; she bit me, hard as she hugged me while we watched our family. Chloe walked down and kissed Annie before hugging her. "We are lucky." Sara waved as Emily was trying tackle her. I nodded as they both looked at me. They didn't need speak because I knew what they were thinking. I had keep us safe, regardless of what that meant. Luckily, I had a whole day before I needed leave. I slowed time and reveled in my life.

Taiiko was the perfect person be with me because the Japanese knew how deal with loss. I respected them for that. She hadn't known us for long, but her heart was breaking like ours. I was glad Sara had a way tell so she didn't have carry that burden, alone. wasn't her burden, just like wasn't mine. Sara thought that me being a wizard, which I was in her mind, freed her tell me about the burden she carried, and was a huge weight. My instinct was carry everything I had . I just couldn't carry this alone, not now. was hard enough knowing Sara would be gone. was inconceivable because Sara was Sara, but all stars vanish. I just never thought I would have deal with that loss.

Sara was free, which was good. I'd gladly take that. She was like she always is... a sprite in an adult body. was no one, literally no one, could watch her and not melt. She was a force of nature and love. We watched her walked off as we held hands, and walked away. was a long driveway and a long road. were no words so we walked in silence. I didn't know what Taiiko was thinking about, but I was thinking about my dreams. I needed understand them...soon. I also needed figure out what ancient Runes meant. No pressure !!!! !!!!!!!!!

"You know Sara will be OK, right?" I nodded." Your beliefs are far different from ours. You seem bridge these things. In our culture, I am sure are many terms for Sara, and what she will do. Sacrifice is not uncommon in Japan. The term I know is, "ikiryƍ" ... a benevolent spirit that is helpful after the person dies."

I looked at her and smiled, as I held her close, and then squeezed her even more. I needed everything I could get because it wouldn't be enough. I was watching us now, and watching us... then. We were happy until we weren't. I could sense this as I Looked at a Taiiko as the two worlds merged and I woke In Japan. I knew where I was, so I ran the home I knew. Taiiko looked at me, walked up me, and bit me, hard, in the chest. This was unusual and beyond protocol. This was Taiiko's decision. She made it as we walked home. I had no idea what I needed to do in the future, but I knew what to do now.

I needed to take care of my family. I knew Sara would leave us at some point, but it wouldn't be until our , Hanna, was safe. I also knew that no one leaves our world...my world. I would deal with that later. Sara gave us a gift by telling me. She shifted the burden, and it went where it should. We'd all deal with it sooner, while she was still here. This was an odd culture and harder history. It was mine, and i had to adapt,

I had two distinct cultures' to blend but I had no idea how to do it. I looked at Annie and Taiiko and tried to merge our families. I could blend them, but not their worlds; that was up to me. Everything seemed to be up to me. It didn't matter because the thing Taiiko cared about was my heart, and she knew how care about that.

Sara sniffled and bit my neck like she was suckling. Sara always bit when she was scared, or mad; she was both. I didn't mind. She looked at me like she wanted say something, but smiled as she pulled my hair and told me I smelled, but she didn't mind. She grabbed my hand and said let's go for a walk. We walked down the driveway to the road. Sara was squeezing my hand, and wouldn't let go. I knew something was wrong, but she wouldn't tell me.

She looked at the sky, and the Sun, smiled and clapped, as she saw the dust cloud on the road. "I have a surprise for you, mister." She smiled and clapped. I couldn't resist.

"Is that Lieve and Heather?" Sara looked at me, stunned.

"You are a wizard? So, you already know?" I nodded. " won't be before I have our is born, but our life....will be unusual. YOU have no idea how this eases me not carrying this alone. Thank you for being you, and knowing. We can enjoy my being pregnant with Melissa because she will be our Hanna's mom. I am so glad that you are a wizard, mister, and know these things. Let's go say hi our daughters." She took off running as I cried, and followed. I knew something was amiss, but I never dreamed Sara would die. I hated this. The person I could talk with about this was Ama, and she was making breakfast.

The van pulled up and Sara hugged both of them before Lieve looked at me, dropped her pack, and bolted. I couldn't help but smile. It was bittersweet. I had babies on the way, multiple munchkins from various families, two teenagers, and two twenty-somethings. I was pretty lucky until Lieve plowed into me, sending us both to the ground, laughing so hard that we could barely breathe. She kissed me, and bit me, and kissed again, as Sara laughed, and clapped.

"Guess what, Da'?"

"You're getting married." Deathly silence as Sara stopped clapping and looked at Heather and us. Lieve looked at me, amazed.

"How did you know that, Daniel?" Sara walked up, knelt, and hugged her.

"Your Da' is wizard, Lieve. Get used to it." She then tackled her off of me and told her how happy she was in Sara-speak. I watch them all rolling around, smiling at them, as everyone walked up to enjoy the show. I was alone in a crowd. I needed to get used to it, but Sara could make me smile.

Jake and Emily attacked their sisters and ran back to the house so they could meet Ama. Janey head-butted me in the chest, as Alison laughed before they both kissed me. "I'm glad you don't have your antlers." Janey stared at me, intently, and then at Alison.

"Fix this, Daniel. Alli and I want a , and you're the Da'....so deal with this shit and get it handled, whatever it takes. We want our family back like it was." They kissed me and ran catch up with the bulk of them. Chloe, Annie, and Taiiko were watching them all walk away with me.

"I love this, and hate this." Silence, as they nodded before we turned and walked away. I had SO much tell them that I couldn't tell them and that is when Chloe bit me in my neck, on the muscle, hard enough draw blood. Everyone was stunned.

"Tell us, Daniel." I stared and told them everything I saw, felt, thought I knew. I told them about Sara, which broke my heart. I told them everything. Chloe and Annie walked away, crying, holding each other. Taiiko was crying too, but she walked with me. As much as I loved Iceland, I hated it just as much.

"Odd place sleep, mister, when you have a bed filled with women love you." I smiled as I kissed her because she was right, but I felt at home here. I wished I could live as the bear. Annie sensed what I felt and touched my cheek before kissing me back. "Do you need to keep running, or do we go home? 's not that far, and 's early. No one but Ama will be awake and I'm not sure she sleeps anyway." I laughed.

"Let's go home, love. Thank you for following me and staying here. I know what that means." Annie looked at me with tears welling in her eyes. It took a lot for her to stay with me. I suppose that was the moment we were truly bonded in the eyes of Gaia, the ceremony was secondary. Annie and I were one.

"Come on, I'll race you." She shifted and ran as I walked and laughed. I wanted to take my time because was still so much for me unravel. The shooters were going be a problem. A variable that I couldn't plan for except before happened, which meant I would have deal with them before the ceremony. How? taking one of Ama's pills would help. Annie ran up, put her paws on my shoulders, and licked me before she ran toward home. I was feeling the need to run, unhindered by worries. We would have enough of those soon enough. I shifted and followed her. was good run. I didn't do as much as I wanted but I found the cave and I would have enough deal with regarding that.

Annie was standing against the SUV smiling as I walked up. She was hugging Sara. I shifted as Sara ran toward me. She stopped in front of me and looked up before hitting me, hard, in the chest, and then biting me in the arm. She kissed me and said, "You are a pain in the ass Daniel," and she stomped back inside. Annie walked up smiling.

"You got off easy, mister. She was going to twist your balls...and not in a fun way." She hugged me before we walked inside. Everyone was still sleeping except the three of us, and Ama.

"So the Runes found you once again Daniel? Were they helpful?" I told her about my dreams and that the Runes kept shifting in front of me. She was quiet but nodding. Dreams are unique in their capacity to be specific, or obtuse. The Runes shifting is interesting. I'll have to think about that because are several reasons. You have one more day, free, with your family..... Take it." Sara pinched me, and smiled. Let go of the things weighing on you and enjoy them." I did just that. I started making french toast as Annie and Sara rousted all the others by tickling them.

Jake and Emily came staggering first, followed by Taiiko. They all looked like something the cat dragged in. Em hugged me and said I smelled like the bear. I nodded but she sat down anyway. Taiiko kissed me while staring at me. I nodded so she sat down next to Emily and hugged her awake. Jake grabbed bacon out of the fridge and said I needed to chop more wood because it was going to be a cold winter and Ama should have more than she needs in case she needs to share. I nodded. I had been his dad for a few months but he had already grown up too quickly. saddened me how much I lost out on not knowing Em and Jake sooner than I did.

Jake teased me about my lack of prowess when came chopping wood and I made fun of him trying make bacon in a skillet that was too as Taiiko and Emily laughed. Ama smiled at her adopted family as she made coffee and the rest of the straggler'd in, yawning. They all smiled when they saw me, which melted my heart. I was a very lucky man and I'd be damned if I'd let anyone take any of them from me.

The two constants with all of them were french toast, and oatmeal....bacon was always a given, as it should be. I couldn't remember the last time all of us were together like this, all except Chloe. She walked into the kitchen, her hair askew, wearing Scrappy jammies, and hugged me before she punched me in the chest.

"You scared me, mister. " She pointed her finger at me, shaking it. "Don't do it again." Sara was nodding as Chloe sat next to her and faded into her shoulder. I put the first plate of french toast in front of them. Jake was laughing at me as I told him just wait. Emily nodded as she pinched him. It was a good morning even though my dreams were still weighing on me, especially about Ama. If she knew, she didn't seem too concerned... and that was when Deat called.

"Hey Deat, it's french toast day. Kinda early, isn't it?"

"Kinda late, actually, and you're lucky you aren't in CO. Melinda is gunning for you. She thought things would ease up when I took the post in Denver."

"You haven't started yet, right?"

"No, but that doesn't register in her mind." I told him as long she didn't talk with any of the girls I was OK with it because I had enough to deal with. We both laughed. " So, we are fairly sure we found the house in Germany. It is connected to Jaak's in a convoluted series of companies. I can't say his . Hell, I can't even type , but he's a piece of shit. You sure know how pick them, Daniel. is activity at the house, and on the grounds. You have an idea when it's going be active?"

" seemed like a couple of weeks when I heard them talking. I might know more tonight. Ama has herbs that help me sleep but they also allow me to move places and see things. 's cool, but weird."

" Well, I'm not going judge because you've always been strange, but we tolerated . Now, 's starting off so keep taking them." I told him wasn't up me. I wished they could have come out here, but were a lot of things I wished for. "They have the place surrounded and we were able access a better drone than we normally use. I hope you are right about these guys, my friend. This is the kind of thing that can make, or break, careers."

"He's dirty as sin, Deat, that's a fact. He just hasn't been caught because of his , and contacts. I'll let you know if I find out anything else. Hold on a sec."

"Hey Deat, how are your girls? Tell them we miss them bunches, even though we barely know them. The fourth seems lifetimes ago."

"Hi Sara, I will and they feel the about all of you. They can't wait see Bob again. Hell, I can't wait see Bob again. How are you?"

"Good. Learning lots but 's an odd place and are a lot of unpleasant people that mean do us harm. I am glad you are helping our Daniel stop them. He needs you Deat." Sara wasn't one for beating around the bush. "You make sure that you and the girls stay in that house, Deat. needs a family like the neighbors lab needs . The holidays are coming and would be nice if the front room was decorated for once. Promise me, Deat!"

"I promise, Sara, and hopefully you'll be back in time help us. I know the girls will love that." Sara got quiet as she nodded and told him that was a date before handing me the phone and walking outside.

"Hey Deat, keep us updated but how is Lieve doing. Will you please tell her to us." He laughed.

"Sorry my friend, no can do. They are on a plane France, and then Iceland. 's supposed be a surprise, but from you. I'm amazed Sara hasn't spilled the beans already. She took the test early because of your situation. She is deciding if she wants to go to Quantico. I suspect all of you will get an earful when they get . She did great and you had all those drones just lying around so I pulled some strings. 's what favorite uncle's are supposed do." I laughed, and told him thanks.

"My pleasure, brother. You keep yourself safe. me if you need me, and give everyone my love." I told him likewise as I looked at the door.

"You're making french toast, sport. 's not hard. You'll figure out."

"Dad....." Chloe walked up smiling.

"He's right, Jake. 's not hard. Come on, I'll show you the right way make . First, we need turn the heat down and then we need soak the bread more, usually, but this is pretty thin so we won't soak as long as we should, and then needs stay on the skillet longer than your dad does ." Jake looked at her and smiled.

"Kinda like the way he makes burgers?"

"Exactly!"

I walked outside and headed up the hill. was becoming a part of the family. Sara saw me, walked into me, and started crying. "'s hard, Daniel, and you are the one can come close understanding." She bit my chest as she sobbed. I did the thing I could do which was hold her until passed.

"Ama, you know this place. I know this place. I used to come here as a . This was not real to us as , It was a legend, Ama, but he is sleeping in that cave. We have enough to deal with." Annie curled next to, even though her beliefs screamed for her to run. She loved me too much, so she curled next to me because I was alone.

The dreams started. I saw how all of it was to happen. Life doesn't work like that, I needed to be in two places at the same time, but I didn't know how to do it. I also needed to be in the future, and be here. I was fucked! I needed to be still.

The dreams were...annoying. They were real, but not, and I had enough to deal with. Annie curled next to me and quelled my angst. There was too much to deal with, on top of what we needed to deal with.

And then there were the runes. They were real, alive, and I had to deal with them. Crap. Annie was lying next to me, but Sara was in my brain. She knew something I didn't know, but she couldn't say. She smiled at me, and I caught a glimpse, of what she knew. Sara knew things we would never understand.

I needed to deal with what was to come before I had to deal with it. I also had all the other crap to deal with, and then the shit I didn't know I needed to deal with. I was glad I was dreaming.

I woke up as the sun was pushing against the night. I didn't move, because Annie was curled into me, asleep. I watched the dawn break until she stirred. She smiled at me and my heart melted. How could I be so lucky, even with all of the crap bearing down on us.
