Ama and I got in and headed to Reykjavik, luckily it was an automatic because I was still a little groggy and could drink my coffee. I actually wouldn't mind another deep sleep because something told me it might be my last for a while. We passed the Telcom van and Ama smiled.

"Did it feel good?" It was my turn to smile.

"Yes, it did. Given the electronics, and what I took, that van was probably worth $150,000, easily. It felt great but I would prefer they just stopped because I'm starting to get mad.

"They won't stop Daniel, not until all of you get married, then it would be pointless, but maybe that won't even stop them. They won't come back here because I won't allow it again and that will keep them off guard because they won't know what to do. Miriam is treading lightly because it's highly likely that Roan and Jaak are behind it, or at least deeply involved. The lineage moves from mother to eldest but not necessarily the wisdom, or power, of the clan, that is one reason I am still here as you see me. You and Anryd will be a welcome change."

"Miriam has been a good leader since her husband died but she relied heavily upon Josef because he was wise so he wasn't easily swayed by people round him, of which there are many. Sadly, Miriam is and it's further complicated because she doesn't want to admit what Roan truly is, that blindness is a danger not only all for you, especially Anryd, but also the Clans because Miriam is not strong enough to stop her alone. Thankfully, with the exception of those who follow Roan, most of the rest of the Clans are waiting to see what you and Anryd do. I have absolutely no doubt that both of you are up to the task, as you and Taiiko are. Miriam treads lightly because she doesn't possess the strength to confront what she must, her husband provided than, none of you have that problem, especially you Daniel," she chuckled. "You chose your totem wisely because it is unwise to stand in front of a charging bear, especially if it's mad. You have no problem doing what you must, even if you would rather not be bother ,and Anryd and Taiiko are the same. You will need to do just that, especially in Norway."

I've watched how you are with each of them. Anyrd and Taiiko are obviously different, and from different cultures, but they are more similar than different and you blend with them seamlessly, as do they with each other. Chloe is the same but Chloe, Janey, and Sara are uncertain in their roles because they don't see the influence, and wisdom, they possess yet, being here will help them with that. Anyrd was lucky because she grew up with it, and they are one of the oldest clans, same with Taiiko."

"Ella died prematurely, as did Claire. It was necessary and often times Gaia's plans or opaque and long range. Another factor is that America is quite young and the culture is vastly different. You view things very differently from here. None of them were all that interested in building a following, mainly because they were grieving and trying to help Henry. The funny thing is that Chloe has the makings of a Clan, but you call it your family, and that is fine with you, and it is fine, period. Anyrd and Taiiko, along with the other large Clans, have greater responsibility especially since Marnine was sent back to Gaia because change is coming, at the light turn left."

I didn't know what to say but I sure could use another cup of coffee so I figured I would just jump in. "Is this prophesy true, Ama." She was silent as she stared at me.

"Pull over here, Daniel, and park. I am not prepared to discuss that yet, but it's part of why I wanted all you staying with me before the wedding, and why there will be no more interruptions. There are things we need to do and there isn't much time before we must leave for Norway. Bring your file and we'll send that and then have lunch. We'll discuss all this later because there are many things I am curious about." I wrote a brief note saying that it was from Deat, I used his full name because I doubted anyone but me call him Deat anymore. He'd have it tomorrow. I extended my arm as I had done with Marnine and Ama smiled and took it as we strolled to lunch. It was a lovely day but it was obvious that winter was coming quickly. I guessed there wasn't much of a fall in the North Atlantic.

The place Ama took me to was more like a bistro than a restaurant I would think of in the states. Ama was watching me as I read the menu. The waitress came up and Ama told me to go first because she was curious what I would get. I ordered the lamb and vegetables, rye bread and butter, and skyr because I like yogurt and I had heard about it. I think she ordered the Hakarl, fermented shark, and my mind froze so I had no idea what else. She asked me about my mother and my father but she was particularly interested in mom. I figured I knew why but I told her as much as I knew about her side of the family because she didn't discuss it much. My meal was excellent and I could see living in Iceland just because of that, the fermented shark, not so much. It must be an acquired taste because it stank to high heaven. Ama paid and we walked back to the car.

She told me to keep driving and the farther we went the not so 'nice' it became. We turned into the parking lot of an older, but still nice, building that was rather large and obviously housed multiple things. I loved these place, and organizations. It reminded me of the woman in Halifax and what she doing with the resources she had available. It always amazed me how the people that helped the most had the least. Ama and I walked in and she was mobbed. I just got out of the way and started to look around. It was like an all purpose community center. It was obviously that a large part of this place was specifically designed to aid folks during the winter, but there was day care so single mom's could work. There was a large food pantry and a kitchen to serve meals. There was a library, and barber shop for both men and women. There were clothes and a room that had professional clothes so people had something for interviews. It was a one stop shop of love and goodness. I looked up as Ama waved for me to follow her.

"What do you think Daniel?"

"I think it's amazing Ama. I love places like these." She smiled and nodded.

"Sadly they are needed everywhere. Marnine didn't care about helping people and neither does Roan. Miriam tries, and has helped some, but this is a contentious issue." I told her I never understood that. She nodded. "It takes strength and determination to help. It takes leadership because there are many who either don't care, or don't want to be bothered." I nodded as we walked back to the offices. Ama introduced me to the director as we sat and they began speaking in Icelandic. I listened intently because I loved these old languages. She handed the woman the money I took from the van which was at least $75,000. It made me wonder what else they had planned to do. The woman was beside herself and hugged Ama and reached for my hand and pulled me up to hug me too, except she also kissed me on the cheek before sitting back in her chair. I wonder what Ama had said. They talked a bit more before Ama stood and said goodbye. I waved as we walked out the door and headed back the SUV.

"She was very happy."

"What we gave them, what you got from the van, is more than half their yearly donations some years, in one day. She's very happy."

"I'm glad because it's obvious they are doing wonderful work and those idiots should pay for something like this after what they wanted to do. It couldn't have gone to a better place. I'm glad you asked Ama because wasn't even thinking about it. I wasn't really sure how much was there, I just stuffed it in the pack. Thank you for bringing me here. It means a lot to me." She smiled and hugged me.

"You have a good heart Daniel." She held out her hand, "I'll drive and I've decided to give you another pill tonight before the bombardment, and no I won't tell you what it except to say it's herbs." We got in as Ama headed home. We didn't speak, which was fine, because I had a lot to ponder.

I opened my eyes and looked around. I don't know what Ama gave me but it worked. I was alone in bed, which was a first. I was always up before everyone else. It felt weird. I had no idea what time it was, or where my suitcase was. I brushed my teeth and walked into the kitchen. Everyone, except Ama was in the sunroom laughing and saying "oh my god." Sara saw me, smiled, walked up and kissed me.

"Morning mister, that's the first time we beat you out bed. Did you sleep well? We've been looking at the gifts, they are super great by the way, and don't be mad but we made Taiiko show us our presents."

"Don't you mean you made Taiiko show you the presents."

She smiled. "Yeah, but they are amazing and we love them and guess what." I asked what. "Taiiko put all of the pearl necklaces on the table, except Miriam's, and we got to choose our most favorite and they all let me go first because I'm the youngest, well of the sisters. Wasn't that nice."

"It was very nice?"

"And guess what, again."

"What?"

"I got the bestest one. Look." She showed it to me smiling and proud.

"That would be hard to top Love."

"Yep! I love it Daniel. Thank you. We all love them. Oh, and everyone got one, well except Jake but he didn't mind. Melissa is super excited because she wasn't excepting it. There were some left over, who are those for?" I said they were for Maggie, Bet, Lieve, and Heather and I thought we got one for Sabrina but I couldn't recall. She clapped.

"Guess what else?"

"What else?"

"We got these super special Japanese combs made of a special wood that smells great, even Ama, although that was a special gift from Taiiko because it was her grandmothers.."

"I know. Taiiko helped me pick them out."

She was quiet. "You're so great Daniel but I feel bad because we didn't get you anything." I kissed her.

"Sara, I've got everything I want with my family. I just wish all of us could be together." She got serious and nodded.

"Are you hungry?" I told I didn't know but would love some coffee. "I'll find Ama and find out to make it. I'll be right back. I'm glad you're up. I've missed you." I smiled as she walked out back because Sara was her own special being. I was so glad I fell in love with her. I pushed to make sure there was no threat as Ama walked in Sara went back to the sunroom.

"There's no one around Daniel and they won't be back here. I've seen to that." I wanted to ask how, but didn't. I was just glad for the break. "Did you sleep well?"

"Yes, whatever you gave me worked great."

" I was getting antsy to call Deat."

"You don't have to worry about Deat right now. He called while you were asleep and Annie spoke with him and now he's focused on the information Annie faxed him. She was up early and we went through the pack you brought back. You're quite the pack rat." she said smiling. I nodded. "She made copies of all the ID's and passports and faxed that to him as well so he has a lot to shift through, but he enjoys that." I nodded. "What are you're plans for the money and the passports?"

"I have no plans, Ama. The only thing it means to me is they don't have it." She poured me a cup of coffee. "Thank you. If you can use it then feel free. I just took everything I could, and damaged as much as I could, to annoy them and cost them. I was hoping that they would realize that the costs were too great and stop. I doubt they will but they have to be running low on men. They have to be retired special forces. I couldn't imagine active personnel being involved, but then again I didn't expect them to target you."

"I can use them. We can use the passports for the clans and the money would be helpful in town. This is reasonably affluent island, at least Reykjavik, but, like everywhere, not everyone is doing well, and winter approaches this island fast. You have a overnight box you need to send, Annie got the address. I want you and I to go into town. We'll have lunch and catch up. I want to show you what I'm referring to and show you around and because you and Sara, in particular are going to be spending time here once we get all this resolved." I looked at her as she smiled. "I know it's not easy to slip out of protector mode but assure you they are perfectly safe, but even if they weren't they are more than capable of taking care of themselves. It will be fine. Get dressed and you can take coffee with you." I nodded. I found my suitcase, got dressed, and walked back into the kitchen.

The girls were coming out, smiling, wearing their pearls. Emily saw me and bolted. She jumped in my arms, smiling. "I love it Da'. LOVE IT!!!. Thank you." I nodded as Jake came up. I hugged him and told him he had something but it needed to stay with Yoshi in Japan.

"I know dad. Taiiko told me and she said I'd like it. She walked up and hugged me.

"Did she? Well, I bet she's right because it's pretty special. Her grandfather, Yoshi, made it."

"Did you sleep well?" I nodded. "You were out before I turned the light out. You're pretty cute when you sleep, mister."

"I have to go into town to send a box but Ama want's to talk and show me around. I'm leery of leaving you here but she said you'd be fine. Do you know where the weapons are? She nodded and walked to the closet and reached inside.

"They're in there and ready to be used but Ama gave me this so I could keep practicing. Yoshi gave it to her a long time ago, so we'll be fine, Love." She held up a sword. I smiled and nodded and said OK. "Spend time with Ama and relax. You've been on high alert for days, probably longer. We're all going to see if you can take another pill tonight as well so you sleep again.

Ama walked up, "Ladies, I know all of you want to thank Daniel for your gifts and spend time with him, you too Jake, but I need him for several hours to accompany me into town. He needs to relax but he's all yours when we get back. They clapped as I got more coffee and Ama and I walked to her SUV. She handed me the keys. "I'll tell you where to go. It'll be nice not to drive."

We were on our final approach into Reykjavik and all I could think about was Ama lying on the ground, I needed to shift this, to clear my thoughts and focus. Taiiko and Tina were worried about because to them I looked worried, which I was because I had to keep my family safe, but what they were feeling was hyper-focus. I had a two purposes. First, get them to Ama's safely. Second, if there was a threat then eliminate the threat by any means necessary. It's good to know people with connections. We landed and immediately went to the maintenance area of the airport, unless you worked here you wouldn't know it where it was, and then we were driven into the hanger. I asked Tina for a pen and paper. She came back and handed it to me as she hugged me. I kissed her head.

"I need to my friend the FBI and push to see if there is a threat here, but I have to see the . Tina, can you go say to Chloe, Annie and the girls and let them know I'll get there as soon as I can?" She nodded. "Taiiko, you about to meet hurricane Sara. You'll adore each other but can you be with Jake and Emily until off the phone? I'll introduce you." She nodded. I could here the stairs being wheeled up and locked as Tina opened the door. Two guys came in to grab the luggage and the bonsai. I took my pack as Tina, Taiiko, and I walked down the stairs. Sara was jumping up and down and clapping and once we got off the stairs she bolted directly for Taiiko, who looked and me and laughed. Sara hugged her and bombarded her with words. Tina walked toward Annie, Chloe and the girls as Jake and Emily came running up to and threw their arms around me. I hugged them, and kissed both their heads as I squeezed. I had missed them so much. I had missed all of them so much. They both started laughing and saying they couldn't breathe, so I squeezed harder. I kissed them again and let go. They were both laughing.

Emily said, "Miss us Dad?" I nodded with tears in my eyes.

"You have no idea, sweets, which is why I hate having to say this but there are things going on that I need to take care of and I need to make a but I'll be back as soon as I can and we can ride to Ama's together," and that is when Sara and Taiiko walked up. Sara hugged and smiled. I introduced the to Taiiko and said I'd be back. I walked toward the hanger door and pushed. They were here. There were least three but they were bored and annoyed and thought waiting was a waste of time because the flight wasn't on the arrival board. least there was that, so if the security guys hadn't been followed, which they shouldn't have been, then we bought some time and had the element of surprise on our side, at least for a while. I called Deat.

"It's late, is everything OK?" I didn't know where to start. There was too much to say and no time. "Daniel. You OK?"

"Hey Deat, sorry. There's a lot to discuss but I have no time, but things are trying to go sideways, so far they haven't. I'll call tomorrow because I need your advice, but right now, Are you still on the task force?"

"Yeah, for two more weeks. I wanted to hand it off right. Why?"

"It's complicated, which is why I want your input since this is your expertise. Do you have a private fax?"

"Yeah, my home. Here's the ." I wrote it down.

" going to send you a fax when we get to the house, it should be within the next two hours. I need you to run those people through your system and see what pops. I think they are connected to the snipers on the fourth, and if right then it might connected to what you are working on." Silence.

"You're killing Daniel. Speaking of the fourth, we had to cut them loose without questioning them via State Dept. orders....diplomatic immunity. It's bullshit but our hands are tied. I'll take a what you fax but tomorrow and plan on talking."

"I will Deat, promise, and thanks brother. Give your girls my love. I want to catch up.

"Roger that, but watch your brother. I'll talk with you tomorrow."

I walked back to everyone. Tina hugged . I thanked her and told her to in a couple of days. She smiled. I hugged everyone. Chloe and Annie had seen in this space and knew what it meant. Sara, Melissa, Jake, Emily, and Taiiko came with me in the rear van. Annie and the others were in the lead van.

"Driver."

"Yes sir."

"Please watch to see if anyone starts to follow us."

"We will sir."

"Thank you." I had to leave a message for my cousin but it was done. I wrapped my arm around the and said to Melissa. She smiled. Tina had filled them in as much as she knew. We headed . I admit that I was on alert because once we left airport property we were in the open, and there were two vans. I didn't even want to think about fucking drones. I breathed, smiled at Sara and Taiiko and started hearing about what my had been doing I was pushing every couple of minutes. It was getting easier, almost a reflex. We left the city and headed north and there were no lights behind us. I exhaled.

"We're about miles ." I told him thanks when we passed a Telcom van on the side of the road.

"Was that van there when you left?"

"No sir, it wasn't, but they are all of the place." We went around a bend and I asked him to radio the front SUV and have them stopped. He did. "Taiiko, please Yoshi and find what's going on and tell him not to hand them over the the local police. contacting Interpol tomorrow." She nodded. I grabbed the file and went to with Annie and asked to fax this to the Deat. She noddedThe vans headed to Ama's and I shifted as I headed toward the van and circled it. There was one person inside. I knocked the cameras off the front and both sides. There two on the back that I knocked off. He was focused and was about to have the shit scared out of him but we was talking to someone. I couldn't make it out, so I waited for him to stop. I ran up the front of the van onto the roof and jumped a few times. I jumped down on the far side and started pounding on the side and shaking the van and ran to the side by the road and did the same put I pounded harder. He was terrified because he had no clue what could do that. I waited by the back door. It opened part way and his left leg stepped onto the ground and he waited. He stuck the barrel of the out as he shifted his weight and started to get out as I used all my force against the door. It hit him in the thigh, breaking his femur. He screamed in pain, dropped the rifle and slipped down. I hit it again, just as hard, this time breaking his shoulder. The force of the blow pushed his head against the other door, knocking him unconscious. I hooked his tac vest, lifted, and threw him into the van then shifted. I grabbed the rifle, climbed in and closed the door.

Surveillance van with four camera feeds, so I had four to take out. I figured there'd be two watching the front and two watching the back. They weren't moving, so that was good. I took off his vest and put it on, disarmed him, and took everything out of his pockets. I slid him against the table, faced him into it and tied his wrists and ankles to the table legs and the tied those together. When they found him I wanted them to wonder. I climbed up front and got the registration, grabbed his pack and started throwing things in it. I took the night vision googles and threw them on the driver seat. There was a locked drawer. I popped it open with the knife. It had all their ID's, cards, wallets, everything. I grabbed it all and put it in the pack. I opened the cabinets. There were blank passports and . They were well funded. I grabbed all of it and threw it in the pack. I opened the other one and it had ammo and mags. I shoved those in as well. It was full, and would be heavy, but I didn't have far to go with it because I was going to stash it and cover it with scrub. I stuck his knife in my belt grabbed his rifle and destroyed his equipment. I climbed into the cab, grabbed the key from the console and drove toward the house until I was about hundred yards . I used the googles. I climbed in the back, he was still unconscious. I got , shot the tires. and emptied the mag into the engine and started trotting for about two hundred yards. I found a good place to stash the pack, vest, and rifle. I cut some brush, threw the knife in and covered it. I pushed. No one but the girls were agitated. I shifted, and began to stalk.

The camera feeds bothered me because that said to me that they were prepared to enter the house, which meant they were either going to everyone, or take them hostage, but I let that go and focused on my prey. I figured they would be about two hundred yards from the house. I stopped at three and smelled. There was no one around but I smelled them. I kept walking and lied down when it was noticeable and waited for movement. Everyone moves eventually, even if it's subtle, and I was focused. I knew about where the first one was, and the second, and that's when he stretched and gave me his orientation. I crept up to him and waited until he stretched again, because I knew he would. It felt good. He moved his arm out and I jumped on top of him and bounced on his shoulders. He grunted and I kept jumping with my full force until I heard the cracks and the moan. I him on the side of the head and knocked him and shifted. I rolled him over, grabbed his ties and bound his ankles. I pulled his arms behind him and tied his wrists. Good thing he was unconscious.

I dragged him of the indentation he had made, disarmed him and threw it in along with the long gun, grabbed his assault rifle and extra clips, stuck them in back pockets and slung the rifle over my shoulder. I dragged him about two hundred feet dropped the weapon and mags, shifted and smelled. He was about the same distance in front of me. I went wide and came up behind him and waited. He moved and I did the same. I grabbed the first and dragged him to the second. I took off his gloves, put them on, and grabbed two more ties. I attached them to their ankles to form a loop. I lifted them and started walking to the house. I needed to work out more. They could hear me coming. Three guys approached me all spread apart and shined lights at me. They stared at me. I asked them to put the gun and mags in the house for me. They nodded and started dragging them to the side of the house. I walked toward the back and when it was dark I shifted, waited, and did the same as the front. It didn't take long because they were antsy. They had no contact and they wouldn't get any. It took about 40 minutes before I dragged these two to the guards. They were all staring at me, again.

"I have skills. Can you put one more rifle inside and all the mags." They nodded. I'll take two handguns and all the mags, the holsters, the vests, and the NVG's if you don't mind." They nodded. "Thanks. I don't think there is anyone else but going to check, I shouldn't be more than thirty minutes." They nodded. I turned and headed up the small hill behind the house where the shooter was in my vision. I shifted and ran. No one had been there. I ran the circumference of the house, a mile and zigzagged back in. Nothing. I walked up and said don't shoot. They were all smiling.

"You guys want something to drink?" They all said please I walked in and everyone stared . I still hated that. I said as they all backed away from . Can someone get the guys outside something to drink. They're thirsty, and can someone find my sweat, and a shirt and socks please. taking a shower." They all clapped. I was almost undressed when Annie and Taiiko walked in. "I don't think the boots smell that bad, sorry, I forgot I had them on."

"I don't care about the boots, Love, are you OK?"

" fine, just tired. Those guys are going to have a bad months." I looked Annie. "I missed you sweets. I missed all of you and sorry I was so distant earlier." She walked up and kissed .

"We understand Love. You were doing your job." I looked down because I still felt bad.

"Did you fax Deat what was in the folder?" She nodded. "When I get there's a bag I need to grab because it has all of their ID and info in it among other things." They both sat on the counter holding hands. Taiiko spoke.

"Can you hear ?" I told her yeah, the enhanced senses hadn't warn off yet. "Yoshi said that two have talked. The one you threw into the tree is still unconscious. The doctor is taking care of him until they can get him to the hospital. The others are close to breaking. They know how to inflict excruciating pain and not leave a mark. He said they should talk soon and no pigs. He'd rather have Interpol pick them up because he agreed about the local police."

"Good. I wiped the water out of my eyes and they were both staring at , awkwardly. "What, the water was cold." The both laughed as Annie hopped down and handed a towel.

"Not that silly, it's just that this is the first time that Taiiko is with one of us while you're naked." Taiiko nodded. "It's fine, Love, it was just interesting." Taiiko spoke.

"Annie's right, Daniel, it's fine. I am not at all jealous of my sisters. I would be with someone else."

"Even Kana?" She stared at me and grunted as she shook her head.

"You're an...."

"The appropriate term is asshole, Taiiko. Come on, you can tell me about Kana and I'll pinch him too." I brushed and put my clean clothes on and smelled the boots they weren't too bad. I hoped it wore off. I went into the living room and Annie glared at me. "You can pinch me when I get back." I hugged Chloe, Janey and Alison and apologized. I'll talk with you when I get back I won't be long. Come on Chloe. She smiled and took my hand as we walked outside.

"Thanks for the drinks, it the spot."

"Good. Can I borrow one of them for about minutes."

"Yeah, the keys are in it." I told him thanks as we climbed in and I headed to get the pack and weapon.

"I'll be right back. Climb in the back and get naked lady." She smiled. I didn't have to ask her twice. I grabbed the gear, opened the back door and put it off to the side. I pushed when I walked up and there was nothing except the people I knew. I got undressed and lied down. It was uncomfortable but I didn't mind. Chloe need to be with . She lied on top of and we kissed. It didn't take long for to get hard. She reached between her legs, position the head of my penis against her lips and pushed on to . We made love slowly, gently, while we kissed. I came inside her and we kissed until I popped . She turned and started to clean , and I did the same with her. We got up and dressed and kissed each again, smiling. No words were needed. It's what we both needed. I pulled back up and grabbed the pack and the gun and headed inside.

"If you ever want a job, let me know." I smiled.

"Thanks, but you guys work too hard." They all howled. All the girls were smiling when we walked in.

Sara said, "Nice ride," and they all laughed. I shook my head and went up to say to Janey, Alison, Jake, and Emily. I was beat but I wanted to at least tell them that. They all understood. Annie had spoken with the . I grabbed the pack and walked into the kitchen. Ama was sitting the table.

"Hello Daniel, It's wonderful to meet you in person. Quite the ." I nodded. "Everything can wait until tomorrow, Love, even your friend Deat. He has plenty to keep him occupied. I'll take care of the weapons. The bonsai are safe, as are your gifts. I took the coverings of the trees because they needed attention. They are not use to flying and it was stressful for them. They are fine. I will take good care of them and I must say that I am impressed, especially by the Ash for all the clans, that was as impressive as it was thoughtful. I am also touched by the thoughtfulness of your gift to because I was here when birch trees covered a fair bit of this island. We can speak more in the morning. I want you to take this." She handed a pill and some water. "It will help you sleep without dreams, or visions. You are more tired than you realize." I took it and she grabbed my hand and looked into my eyes. "I am glad you're back Daniel. I've missed you, now hurry because it doesn't take long and none of us want to lift you onto the bed."

I walked into the living room and I could feel it kicking in. It felt like I was drunk. I saw Taiiko and reach out for her to help me. She grabbed me. "Bed." She helped me into our room sat me on the bed as she took my boots and socks off. I fell onto the pillow as she lifted my legs and put the covers over me. I said thank you. She kissed me and I was out.

Taiiko also took the bulk of the danish and finished it in two bites, and then kissed me. Tina laughed and got up to get me another cup of coffee, I told her to forget the danish because I probably wouldn't get much of it anyway. Taiiko nodded and smiled. I didn't tell them all the things that I was wondering because there was no sense in all of us worrying, I was just glad we were going into a hanger. Hopefully, if there were people waiting, they wouldn't know we landed. I didn't expect this to fool anyone, I just wanted them unsure what was happening so it would buy us time to get out of the city. Ama's was going to be the real test.

Taiiko and I sat back in our seats and I looked at the file I got. Tina walked up and asked if we wanted anything. 'I don't suppose you have a fax machine back there." She smiled and shook her head.

"It's only 2021 love, but if we weren't going with Plan B they have one in the terminal. I nodded. I was still bothered by how extensive the information was, down to photo's. This was more than a bunch of depraved assholes preying on young women and girls. Hopefully Deat could fill in some of the blanks. Taiiko and I dozed, well Taiiko did and I pretended so she would. She leaned against my arm and held my hand before she fell asleep so I didn't get up again. She was pretty wily. It was amazing that it'd only been several days since I even knew she existed and now we were flying to Iceland like we'd been together for years. I wasn't complaining but it was a bit odd, so naturally I gravitated to it like a duck to water. Taiiko opened her eyes and Tina walked up with a menu, smiling.

"We're about four hours out. I'm going to feed the crew and deal with dishes and then we can eat. It'll probably be forty-five minutes or so." We nodded and Taiiko climbed onto my lap.

"You seem worried, mister, is everything OK? Tell me the truth Daniel."

"I am worried but I only have limited information right now and, as usual, more questions than answers. I should know more when we land and I can push, but it's safe to say that we aren't out of danger. We've done fine so far Love, so don't fret.

"I'm not Daniel because we have you, you're our secret weapon now let's look at the menu. I'm starved." I told her I didn't know why because she ate three-quarters of my danish, and she bit me before kissing me. I didn't need to go any farther than the beef stew, mashed potatoes, salad, and brownie even though it was highly unlikely I'd get the brownie. Taiiko got the salmon, roasted potatoes, onions, and garlic, and asparagus. Tina asked if we wanted anything to drink and we said sake at the time as Tina laughed and nodded. I told her each and it was fine with if she wanted something. She said she couldn't. I was hoping it would stop my mind enough so I could get a few hours of sleep.

None of us spoke much because the food was amazing, and it sure beat peanuts. Taiiko was like a ravenous dog, even though I would never say that to her, I'm not completely stupid. Tina wasn't far behind with the chicken dish she got. I really wasn't one to talk because I actually thought about licking the plate when I was done, it was that good. I like to cook and I make very good beef stew but mine didn't compare to this. I could feel Taiiko staring at me as Tina watched smiling and finished her meal. I turned and she batted her eyelashes and Tina and I both laughed. I handed her the brownie as she clapped. She kissed me and said thanks as she put the last half of her sake on my tray. I guess she wanted me to sleep too.

"That was excellent Tina." Taiiko nodded while she chewed. "It's the best beef stew I've ever had, and I make beef stew.. I'm so glad that Annie changed things because that's not where you should try and cut back on costs." She nodded and finished chewing.

"Annie's been like ever since I've known her and I'm sure she's always been that way. Roan, not so much. If Roan was the oldest we'd be lucky to get water. They're as close to royalty as you can get in the clans and while Miriam never flaunted that both Annie and Roan were treated very well, even though Roan would disagree. Annie never seemed to care. She wasn't my wealthy friend, she was just my friend and as down to Earth as could be. She didn't mind having access to the plane and all that she had access to, but if she didn't have it she would be the same. It wasn't who she was, it was the position she was born into. Gaia chose wisely with her.

These planes seem like such an extravagance, and they are of course, but this company, especially, was created as a way to be able to move people around quickly, and privately, when needed, like you and Taiiko. We do a brisk business, very brisk, with people in what was your world, and it's exploded over the last ten years. It's very profitable and pays for our travel, and the costs. It's an amazing perk but it's not like they have planes just sitting around waiting for someone to take one for a spin. They probably could because the clan is very wealthy because of where they live and the things they have diversified into, just the oil alone would be enough to do it." I nodded and said that Annie had told me something similar. Gaia has chosen wisely with all of you and if the prophesy is real then you are the perfect family to fulfill it."

"Assuming we make it through the ceremony."

"Well, yeah, there is that." We all laughed as Tina cleared the plates. "How was the brownie sweets."

"Excellent. Thank you for giving it me, I love them and Yamaita doesn't really understand the concept." She held my hand and squeezed. Finish the sake because I want you to sleep until we land.

I nodded. "I'll find a recipe online so I can make them for you whenever you want and since we're pregnant, I'm guessing that will be often." She smiled and bite as she put her head against my arm and held my hand while I finished the sake. Tina took it and went to clean up and give us privacy. It didn't take long for it to kicked in and for me to close my eyes. Taiiko got the blanket and covered me before going to the galley to keep Tina company. They were becoming friends.

The dreams were particularly vivid, I figured it was the sake, and a full belly. I was in Miriam's home, our home, but I wasn't sure how I knew that, I figured it was because she was Annie's mom and Annie and I were bonded. Something was wrong it was darker than it should have been because it was noon, and it wasn't Miriam who was there it was Roan and Jaak and they were talking about what they would do once they were in charge. Jaak left and I followed him. He went into a room. I tried to open the door so I could hear and then remembered I was dreaming so I walked through it and instantly regretted my decision. There was a young woman, naked and gagged, on a bed and on her knees. Her wrists and ankles were tied to the corners. Jaak was getting undressed. I left in disgust but Ella was right about him, I was wondering if Roan knew. I shuddered as I walked back to her. I passed a table and noticed a handwritten note in what I assumed was Norwegian with the name Ama circled. I put my hand above it and the words began to change into English. It read.

R,
The time is fast approaching. You must kill the bitch in Japan because it will crush Daniel and her grandfather, but in order for this to work you must also kill Ama. She is hard to kill and if you don't succeed do not leave any trail back to you, or he will find it. If she does not die then we will not succeed. Do not fail me. Your future depends on it.

M

There was no date but I knew who the M belonged to. She had to have written it before I sent her back to Gaia because I doubted where she was had postal service. Marnine was more machiavellian than Machiavelli himself, but once again it didn't make sense. Roan would e either be stupid, insane, or her lust for power had clouded her to such an extent that she had lost all reason....or perhaps she was all three. Iceland was neutral and Ama had to know about this because she knew about everything else. I wanted to leave this place and I prayed Roan never took power.

I jumped to Ama's house and she was in her garden. She looked up at me and smiled. Hello Daniel, you've been busy, sadly you will be busier still but you have done well dear one." I saw a flash and my smiled faded as I tried to pull Ama to the ground. I couldn't so I stepped in front of her as I heard the shot. I felt the bullet pass through before hitting Ama in the heart. She crumpled to the ground but I could hear her say, "Daniel, I cannot die, but stop this for the girls."

I gasped as I jolted awake, covered in sweat. I was breathing hard as Tina and Taiiko ran up, holding me, trying to get me to fully wake up but I was still looking at Ama lying on the ground.

"How much longer till we land Tina?"

"Less than an hour."

'We need to get unloaded quickly, sweets, because we'll need to leave quickly. Say hello to Chloe and Annie, it's important. I wish it could be longer." Both of them asked what was wrong. I told them. Taiiko said,

"It was a dream Daniel, a bad dream, but a dream. Sake can do that." I looked at her.

"It wasn't a dream, Love. It was a premonition." I got my pack down and put my stuff in it so I was ready.

The coffee had been sitting for too long so I just held it and hoped Tina and Taiiko slept, no sense waking them up. Besides, I needed to think but I wish I had my notebook here because it helped in that process. I figured would always be more questions than answers, I just wished the ratio would narrow. was something missing, shit was a ton missing, but why would someone want Alison dead before they even tried to find out what she knew. didn't make sense unless they wanted tie loose end, even potential ones after Gustav was found dead. Gustav was pissed off about the because we took all of , the person above him didn't care and just wanted things lay low along the front range until blew over. Deat did say the trail went cold, hopefully the info I had would heat things back up again and turn the focus Europe, primarily Finland, and Jaak's , and Jaak.

I might be making a leap, or using faulty logic, lord knows wouldn't be the first time. this wasn't what Ella meant when she said 'unpleasant' because are lots of unpleasant ways make , but my instincts said was something . Javier said the hackers had heard the thing that Gustav was doing was happening in the EU and I certainly wouldn't doubt that was. Depravity can run deep in some men, and apparently some women too. I needed to Bet and Javier as well. What I needed do, wanted do was take Taiiko meet my cousin and then Denver meet my family . If was true that Jake and Emily wanted stay then would be good for Em spend time with her moms, and a break with Jake would be healthy, albeit unpleasant. I wasn't going allow us be separated so we either all left, or we all stayed. It made sense me go back for a couple of weeks and figure things out because I had the sense that we wouldn't be back for a while. I needed talk with Lieve as well because I wanted her and Heather with us too. I sure walked into a briar patch.

The second thing that I just couldn't wrap my head around was how would anyone know about Taiiko. It happened to fast, yet four men from Finland, heavily armed, were waiting for us. It didn't jibe. Tina said that people were aware of me and Annie, and potentially me being part of the prophesy but they wouldn't know specifics, and how would Roan. I knew Annie wouldn't ever be speaking with her because she was under no illusions about her sister, even if she did loved her. I suppose the why was secondary at this point. I couldn't get the thought of those snipers in ghille suits watching the shop, armed with suppressed rifles, out of my mind. weren't a lot of trees in Iceland, was a whole lot of flat and open which is paradise for snipers. I wanted see if Ama had dogs, or could get dogs, set them loose see if they would find anyone, but I didn't want get the dogs killed in case they did. I'd rather do myself because if they were , they would regret and be in the hospital for a very long time. If we were in Denver, they'd be at the bottom of a mine shaft.

Tina walked out wrapped in the blanket, yawing and kissed my head as she sat down. "Thanks." I smiled and nodded. "You should have woken me up. I'll make a fresh pot. I'm glad you didn't drink that."

"I wouldn't have blamed you, sweets.'

"Why aren't sleeping? You have to be tired Daniel."

"I had a dream and now I have questions." She stared at me intently.

"I'll be back with coffee."

"And a pastry too, if you have any more. Good thing I don't fly very often." She chuckled. "Please find out how much longer until we land." She nodded. Tina walked out with two cups of coffee and my danish and sat down.

"The Captain said about eight hours. We can have dinner whenever you Taiiko like but I was going wait until we were 3-4 hours out since it's just the two of you." I nodded.

"How many people does the largest jet you fly hold?"

"Twelve. Why?"

"We might need it. I'm thinking of taking everyone back to Denver for a couple of weeks. Is a way that we could land in Denver as an unannounced stop with the final destination somewhere else? is a airport not far from were we live. We could be off and gone in minutes because we'll take carry-on's and you could be back in the air. I want make as confusing as I can for these assholes."

"I'll with the Captain but I'm sure is because the airports we fly into aren't that busy. Is that serious, Daniel?" I looked at her.

"I'll have a better sense when we land, and get Ama's, but I think so." Taiiko walked up bleary eyed.

"Are you flirting with other women again Daniel?" She sat on my lap, kissed me and stole my coffee as Tina was getting up to get her a cup.

"Don't bother, she'll finish mine." Taiiko smiled. "I never get to finish anything." Tina laughed as she sat back down.

"Why are you awake, mister?" I told them about the dream and my thoughts. It was beyond mere speculation in my mind but I was still not sure. It would take a more than eight hours for me be sure. I should have slept longer.

I greeted them but they were somber. "What is ?"

"'s physics, Daniel," Ella said. Claire still didn't speak with words. "For every action, is an equal, or greater, reaction. Was yours the action, or the reaction?"

"I've lost count Ella. How 'bout you just tell me what is going on. I feel like I am three moves behind and I'm getting quite tired of it, and what I saw today didn't ease my mind.

"You've actually been holding your own nicely. We are all quite impressed." Jesus Christ! "What happened at Yoshi's and Taiiko's was unexpected. Your instinct was right about that, in a manner of speaking. Their cousin saw an opportunity, or so he thought because he is not very bright, and very easily manipulated. He thought that if Taiiko was out of the way that he could step in..."

"And Yoshi, or any of them including Yamaita?"

"I said he wasn't very bright. He barely thinks and certainly doesn't at options. He's a useful pawn, a diversion. The problem was they didn't expect you. The men in the SUV was the primary mission, was being the operative word. Roan is a pawn too, even though she is unaware of but she is smart, cunning, and devious, as is her fiance."

"How did they know about Taiiko? They were waiting follow us the airport, Ella. I'd been a few days and Taiiko and I happened in those few days. So they are either coming after me, which begs the question why, or someone close her isn't loyal, or someone working at the charter company isn't because Taiiko made the calls change the flight after the first fire. The other options I can think of are that one of the girls set this up for some reason which I totally don't , or someone is going after every clan. Can you see why I am confused?" They both laughed.

"You really are doing quite well, Love." Claire smiled, and nodded. "You are the wild card they didn't expect, and while you may think you are three moves behind, they think you are two always two moves ahead. You have inflicted significant pain their operations. You've taken and property. You put quite a of men out of commission, and you've complicated things for them with law enforcement, and if aren't a target already, you likely will be soon which is why you need wrap this up sooner rather than later." Claire nodded.

"Unbelievable, and how do you suggest I do that when I don't have a fucking clue what is going on?" I waited, nothing. "Tell me about how, and why, Finland is involved."

"Convenience and opportunity mainly, and they are very good, well usually. Jaak's family is very well connected in the government, and very wealthy, but the way they amazed their fortune is... unpleasant say the least. They respect nothing except and the sad part of this, for Roan, is that if she truly knew Jaak she would see that he is not far removed from his . Sadly, Roan embraced darkness because of greed and will have atone for her actions. Gaia is harsh but forgiving. will not be easy for her. They think the clans are businesses designed make and that they can control , and profit from it.

They have no idea what the clans are about, or what the leaders role is. Do you Daniel?" I was quiet, thinking, not about the clans, I understood the clans. I was thinking about Jaak's and what Ella had intimated about him. I assumed the snipers in Denver were after one, or all, of the girls, which they probably are, now, especially since Taiiko is involved, but now I wasn't so sure because of the date, July Fourth, now I was starting think they were waiting for Alison. I needed talk with Deat.

"Daniel? Are you OK, Love?"

"Sorry, I was thinking and remembering. Ella and Caire smiled. answer your question Ella in my mind the purpose of the leader is the as the clan, , the businesses just help facilitate that. I think that is the change the prophecy speaks of and that was what Marnine was trying destroy, or prevent, because she knew that all of us share that view. Taiiko said when we were talking about what we would do after the wedding, were we would live. She said us being together is part of our power. Anyway, 's just a thought and I've been wrong before." Both Ella and Claire were silent for quite awhile before Ella spoke.

"You are an intriguing man, Daniel," and they were gone without a word as I woke up. I was no longer tired. I gently got up and went the galley. Tina was sound asleep. I put my blanket over her, poured myself a cup of coffee and sat down think. If I was right then leave me get involved in two separate cluster fucks, that weren't separate at all. didn't matter because right now was an existential threat my family and I was done being nice.

Tina refilled our coffee and told us to let her know when we wanted breakfast. We nodded.
"May I have another pastry?"

"Me too, please." She smiled and nodded She set them down and said,

"I spoke with the Captain and it's already been done. We aren't suppose to do that but there is always latitude. Annie called before we took off, a benefit of being the owner." Tina smiled. We are going back to Nova Scotia Daniel, where you left from to begin with. Smart.
We'll be making a landing in Iceland for mechanical issues. and then heading to Halifax. We will heading into a hanger where your family will be waiting. It's a secure part of the airport. You'll be leaving via an access gate. We'll wait so you are well on your way and the then take off again. Annie has always been very clever."

"You know Annie."

"Yes Daniel, we went to University together. I know Chloe too. We're friends even though we don't stay in touch often enough."

"Why didn't didn't you join Annie's clan?"

"I have complicated stories too, sweets." Taiiko was listening intently.

"Tina, please share your breakfast with us later, and help yourself to pastries, same with the pilots." She smiled, nodded, and did just that. "I like her Daniel. I want her to come to the wedding." I nodded. "There is something interesting about you, special, and I haven't
quite figured it out. You have a way with people, an affect on them and it's not just women, although that is definitely true. Kana likes you very much. I stared at her. "I didn't mean in that way, although I'm sure that is true also because she liked seeing you naked. It's
much deeper than that. She trusts you. She called you 'kami,' protector of our forests and people. That has definitely been the case since you arrived. I think that is part of why you feel so close to our family, and they you, as well as the way you feel about our land. I am quite curious to see how you are in Iceland and Norway." I was quiet.

"So Kana liked seeing me naked?" She stared at me in disbelief before she laughed and bit my arm and said I was incorrigible." I kissed her and nodded as I grabbed her coffee. "Please open the pastries." She did and took a bite out of mine before handing it to me. She
looked at me and smiled like a chipmunk with full cheeks.

"Penance," she said as she chewed. We both laughed. Humor was one of the things we all shared. "After the ceremony, we are all going to have figure out where we will stay, and how. I doubt anyway of us will want to be separated, nor do I think we should because that is part of our strength. It's part of the reason your spirit has been so agitated, Love. Yes I knew. We are mated, linked. We all are. It's only several weeks and the girls can barely stand it, and it weighs so heavily upon you I have been amazed that you have slept as well as you have. Although we have been busy." I smiled and nodded.

"The further along in our pregnancies, the more the nesting instinct will take over. I suspect Ama will have insight along with Ella and Joseph." It was my turn to stare at her in disbelief. "He came to me in a dream and welcomed me to your people. He asked me not to tell
until we had left Japan so that you weren't distracted. I agreed. I'm sorry because I don't like keeping things from you but given all that happened, he was right."

"My people?" I was truly confused "All I know is that we are your protectors. They have been very tight lipped with their information. It's very frustrating and is usually just before some shit hits the fan."

"You've what you have done on instinct?"

"Mostly, but they have helped, even Marnine helped which was why I was hoping she had changed. She hadn't, that was obvious and you cousin is part of that but it's not over, not by a long stretch I'm afraid."

We finished eating our pastries and sipped our coffee. Tina warmed our cups as she smiled. I got my pack and opened it. The necklaces and stones were in it along the accordion I found in the trun I grabbed that. I wish I hadn't. It was similar to the information that I found in Denver that was targeting the girls and led to all the fun that on the fourth of July only this had updated locations, including Taiiko's, along with accurate maps, at least of Japan. There were photo's of all of the houses, including Taiiko's which meant someone was close enough to take photo's, and they'd have to be close because the woods were pretty dense and the driveway meandered. It was the same with Ama's in Iceland, and Miriam's in Norway. There were photo's of all the airports with recon information from inside each. I wasn't about to just hope that they couldn't weapons inside because I knew they could. This wasn't good.

"How do they know so much? How do they know about me? We just met. I'm starting to get scared Daniel. "Why would anyone do this? What's the purpose? It doesn't make sense." I nodded as I put the information back in the file.

"I don't know Love but it's disconcerting to say the least, unless what happened last night and this morning was a fluke, a coincidence, and it was for a different purpose than the one I assumed was for the girls. This is why limited information is fucking frustrating. We have twice as many questions as we do answers and it's wearing thin. Before I sent her away, Marnine was furious about me disrupting her plans because they had worked to long on them. I'm starting to wonder if our concerns about Annie's clan, and her sister, isn't just a family squabble but part a greater plan. It makes my head spin. We can't answer any of this now, but I hate playing Sherlock Homes. Are you hungry?

"Very." Taiiko buzzed for Tina. "Whenever you're free for breakfast let us know. There's no hurry. Tina smiled.

"O I've got about fifteen minutes more of paper work and then I'll get it ready. Let me grab you menus." It wasn't extensive but it was quite varied based upon nationality. Tina walked up after about twenty minutes.

"You ready?" Taiiko said she'd have the Japanese breakfast, big surprise, and I chose the goat cheese omelette and home fries. We both got more coffee. Tina and went back to the galley. She came back out and put real plates and silverware down and porcelain cups. She came back with hers which was trout and fingerling potatoes and asparagus. I almost got that. It looked wonderful.

"Beats crappy sandwiches, I'm glad Annie acted so quickly. She had no idea but said that it wasn't right." Tina smiled.

"Everyone is very happy." We ate and chatted. It was surprisingly good considering it had to be reheated.

"How long have you been doing this Tina?" She swallowed.

"Since I was in college. Annie got me a summer job, and holidays, in my junior year and then when I graduated I moved to full time."

"Do you like it?" She looked at us and smiled.

"Yes and no. Annie's family takes very good care of us so as jobs go it's great, and I get lay overs in some amazing places, but it is work, except when you fly because you aren't demanding at all, most are demanding. I've been doing it for over a decade and it's wearing on me. For the first seven years I didn't even have an apartment, and I still don't have a car and I'm thirty-three years old. Can you imagine that?" We both shook our heads. "I worked mostly all the time for the first seven years and stayed in hotel rooms. This was my life, it mostly still is but I have a super apartment in Glasgow when I need a brea I love Scotland." I smiled and nodded. "You too, Daniel?"

"I've never been, but it's on my list. My dad's family is from Scotland." Taiiko and I finished as Tina finished hers interspersed with talking. We didn't mind because we were enjoying her sharing.

"I basically had no expenses for seven years and a very good salary for someone in their twenties, and I'd always get overtime during the holidays because I had no family, another long story for the next flight." We all laughed. "I was able to save a lot, still am even with the apartment because I make more now. My plan is to finish the year and then go to part time but I haven't figured out where I to go, or do. I've worked my entire life, all of us seem to do that. I enjoy painting and to pursue that but I am particular about where I live and the people around me. I am better suited to our people." We nodded. I had a thought.

Can you stay somewhere after the plane lands? Could you stay in Halifax for several days if you wanted to?

"Yeah, especially me because I rarely take time off. Why?"

I smiled as my devious side kicked in. "I think you would like Nova Scotia, I did. It's gorgeous. My cousin lives about an hour inland but still on water. She's an artist.... a jewelry designer. She made the girls rings and some necklaces. I think you would like her and her place is idyllic." She smiled.

"Are you trying to set us up, Daniel?" I laughed.

"Only if you want me to. You have similar energies and I think you would be friends and it's very peaceful....and she's an artist too. She's from my mom's side of the family. I don't know much about them but they are connected to all of this too. Think about it and let me know and I'll call her. I need to anyway." She nodded as she picked up the plates.

Taiiko said, "that was a very good meal. I was a bit surprised." I nodded.

"I was too when I first had one. I'll bring you a refill." She filled our cups. "Call your cousin, Daniel, and see if she would mind a guest for a few days, but I could stay in a hotel, or
B and B. I like Nova Scotia and I could use a break for several days. I'll call my supervisor when we land."

"I will but I'm sure she won't have a problem. She works all the time too and enjoys company.I wished I had been able to stay longer so we could have caught up. We finished our coffee. It wasn't enough to keep us from falling asleep. Tina put blankets over us. I wasn't sure how long I had been asleep when Ella and Claire stepped into my dreams.

I needed to call Deat. If these men were connected with the snipers in Denver then we had problems, but I was mostly concerned about the zip ties. Yoshi was staring at me. "What is it Daniel?

"I'm not sure yet but I know who to call to find out. Either way, Yoshi these guys are hardcore so tell you're people not to underestimate them. These are the kind of people who can kill you with their hands tied. They are very dangerous. He nodded and left as I asked if he trusted Kana. 'With my life Daniel-san." I asked how about Taiiko's. "Yes." I pushed and felt something but it wasn't close. Taiiko and Kana walked out laughing, looked at me and stopped.

"What Daniel?"

"I'm not sure but there is something. Tell Yoshi I'll be back. Ask Kana if she knows how to fire a handgun?" Kana nodded but looked concerned. "Have Yoshi grab guns and extra clips, just in case. Meet me halfway down the driveway. I shouldn't be long and tell Kana to prepare herself." I ran, shifted, and leapt off the porch and ran as fast as I could toward the road. I could hear Kana gasp and Taiiko and Yoshi speaking with her. There was no one in the woods. I suppose they figured it wasn't safe since it'd been twelve hours since anyone would have had contact with the three in the house, and someone was waiting for contact, that was a certainty. I still ran through the woods for cover. I got close to the road, shifted and pushed. They were about thirty yards up the road. There four of them. I shifted back and walked through the woods toward them. They were in a SUV waiting for us to leave. It was on the side of the road and close enough to the trees, which were dark, that I could be on them without warning. Doing what I planned would hurt me but I healed quickly and it was worth it. The two in the back weren't pay attention and the two in the front were looking for us.

I focused, breathed and pounced. I was at the back door in and instant. I shattered the window ripped the door off dug my claws into the closest guy and threw him high into the woods, hard, as I roared. He hit a large a tree and crumpled he wouldn't be walking for a long time. I roared again as I pushed inside. It wasn't easy. I swiped across the face of the other in the back seat breaking his jaw and sending the side of his head into the window before he could react. He was unconscious. I did the same with driver as he was going for his weapon. He was out cold before it cleared the holster. The man in the passenger seat was left handed and had just clear his weapon when I bit into his shoulder and shook as I beat him against the window. He went limp. I backed out and was getting ready to shift back to me as Kana walked out of the woods, gun ready. I shifted and looked at her, and started pulling them out.

She came up and helped. There was a bag on the floor that I grabbed as Kana pulled the driver out and dragged him in the the bushes. She tied their hands behind their backs and started to disarm them and grab their ID. They had weapons everywhere but Kana was thorough. We got everything. I pulled the last one out and she did the same with him and started throwing the gear into the bag and taking off the tactical vests. I grabbed the registration and popped the trunk. There was a larger duffel in it and I knew what that meant. I grabbed it, threw it on the ground and and checked the spare. There was an accordion file on it. I grabbed that and headed to the guy in the woods. I took everything, including the vest and walked of the woods and extended my hand. She smiled and took it as she held her thumb and forefinger to her nose and squinted, then laughed. I nodded and laughed. I took out my knife and sliced the stems off the two closest tires, put the vests in the duffel bag and hit all three of them with the back of my knife, hard. I picked up the file and we disappeared into the woods. I followed Kana too the SUV. She got in with the small bag and I threw the larger one in the back. I got in and rolled down my window as Yoshi drove off.

I turned and smiled at Taiiko. She shook her head and smiled back. "Please tell Kana thank you, that made it go much quicker." She spoke to Kana who smiled at me and nodded. Yoshi knew what he was doing in his training. "Can you also call someone at the house to grab the guys so no one finds them. There's one in the woods about twenty feet from the the back door of the car." She nodded. "They are just as dangerous, although probably not for awhile. They'll need to call the doctor again. There's a bag of weapons in the back, Yoshi, FYI." He called someone and said we needed to make a quick stop in a bit.

"Daniel." I turned.

"Yeah Love. Taiiko and Kana were holding handfuls of cash....US cash. Fuck. It was just like Denver. "Please call Annie and tell her. It doesn't matter what time it is. Tell her what happened here looks like Denver and to be on guard. Have bring armed security, if she can because the airport will be the easiest place for something to happen." She nodded. Also have see if she can change the planes' manifest and flight plan to show Nova Scotia as the destination. We can land in Iceland because of a warning light." She stared at me. "They know too much." She nodded and called as Yoshi pulled next to a van and got out. Kana and I did the same. She walked over carrying the smaller bag as I grabbed the duffel. Yoshi and Kana spoke to him as I threw the bag in the back. He looked at me and nodded, got in and drove off. We did the same.

"She said to call her when we get to the airport. I told her we would but only after you take a shower and change clothes." She translated and the backseat laughed. The trip to the airport was uneventful. We left the weapons in the van, including my knife. Kana, and the other woman, were on alert as they guarded Taiiko. Someone from Annie's company came up with a cart and took the suitcases, after I grabbed clothes and my new boots and handed them to Taiiko so I didn't stink those up too, and the bonsai, and headed inside. I told Yoshi to hold onto the sword and knives as they might need them. He nodded. They walked inside with us to wait until I showered because once we were through security we should be fine. Kana hugged me and kissed my cheek and then hugged Taiiko. They said something and smiled as Yoshi took me aside.

"This was unexpected, and intense." I nodded. "I'll be making calls all day to see if I can get information and then we'll figure out what to do with the men." I told him he needed more pigs. He smiled and nodded. "Keep her safe. Keep all of them safe."

"I will. You need to pay attention to the ridge overlooking the river. If I wanted to access your place I'd come from there or from behind the house since we are aware of the vulnerability of the saw mill. It might also be wise to install a gate there and motion detector's on the dirt road, and along the driveway. Your students are going to get a crash course in working in trees." He laughed as Taiiko came up and hugged him.

"We'll be fine grandfather, but wait until we board, just in case." Taiiko bought two garbage bags from the agent and I took a shower. I threw my clothes in the bags and tied them shut and handed it to Yoshi. They're securing the bonsai in the cabin and finishing up. We have fifteen minutes, call the girls."

They started talking at once. "I'm fine and as much as I adore all of you I can't understand you if you don't take turns." Sara grabbed the phone everyone yelled, "SARA!"

"Are you ever going to stop scaring us mister?"

"I'm sorry Love, but I'm fine and we'll be there in under twelve hours and you can punch me."

"You got that right.... Stop Chloe! I'm not finished

"Sara, stop it. They have to get on the plane. We can't talk long. It's serious I take it. It is and I would prefer if all of you stayed there and have Ama send a driver to pick us up. It's not the way I intended it but it would be safer.'

"We'll discuss it. Pay attention Love. Annie and I talked and we'll have private time later. We all sleep together for the foreseeable future. Here's Annie. We love you."

"I love you to. Tell everyone even though they know."

"I spoke with Ama and she is upping the patrols and sending them farther out." I told her good. "We're going to have a lot to talk about, it seems.

"Yeah we are. I told Chloe that I'd feel better if all of you stay there and reserve a car for us."

"Won't happen Daniel, I can tell you that right now. Sara is way too excited, as are Jake and Emily. We will have security and you, me, Melissa and Janes. We'll pay attention and I know it goes against you instincts but we're stubborn."

"When did Janey and Alison get there?"

"Couple of days ago. They love it here like the rest of us." I asked how things were in Denver. "Fine. I'll fill you in tomorrow after you and Taiiko sleep. I'm guessing you didn't get much over the last couple of days, and not for that reason." I laughed. "Enjoy the flight. I'll call about the manifest and flight plan when I hang up because it's a good idea. We love you. I love you. Quite the life that chose you Daniel. We'll see you soon. Give Taiiko our love. We all like her, even Jake and Em."

"I love you to Annie, and I will. Thanks." I walked back to the gate and we said goodbye.

"Pay attention Yoshi. I don't want any of your family getting hurt. I'm growing quite fond of them." He hugged me and nodded. Kana hugged both Taiiko and I again. Taiiko hugged the other woman and her and I bowed. We headed to the plane holding hands and climbed the stairs. Tina was waiting for us. She looked at us holding hands and looked me and smiled.

"Taiiko this is Tina....Tina, Taiiko." They nodded. "It's a long story."

"I bet," she said chuckling. "Would you like coffee and a pastry? It'll be a bit before I can serve breakfast." We both said please.

"Same rule applies for you and the crew, so make sure they eat." Taiiko looked at me confused. Tina smiled.

"No need Daniel, that rule was changed. We eat what the guests eat. Did you have anything to do with?" I shrugged as she kissed my cheek. "Pardon me, Taiiko, but he is a very nice man. You are a lucky woman. I'll bring your coffee." Taiiko smiled.

"Large cup, please. It's been quite the morning." She nodded as we walk in and sat down. I kissed her. "Are you OK Love?" She looked at me with misty eyes.

"Tired, and stressed, but better. I told Yoshi to be careful....all of them to be careful. I am beginning to see why you were hesitant to leave but he does have abilities that will keep them safe. It is important for us to be in Iceland. I knew that before Ella told us." I nodded as Tina brought us coffee.

"We're closing things up and we have the bonsai secure in the back. We should be taking off in about five minutes so you'll need to put your seat belts on." We did. "May I sit?" We nodded. "May I be impertinent?" I laughed.

"This is only my second flight Tina, but when haven't you been. You'll need to ask her."

"Tina, feel free to speak your mind. I prefer that."

"Are you pregnant?" Neither of was expecting that, but I'm sure Annie would get a kick out it.

"Why do you ask?"

"There are only several large clans left, Marnine saw to that. She undid how our people lived for thousands of years and forced us to shift. There were many benefits of that such as this. Most of us are either from smaller clans, or alone. There are many such people. The thing we all share is that we are all connected through Gaia." Taiiko nodded. "We are all aware of Daniel and what he did to Marnine. We don't know the whole story but we know about the wedding, and we know about the prophesy of uniting us into one clan. The one thing Marnine did well was was to shift us away from physical violence and focus us on business and learning, but there are those who want to take us back to that in the search of power." I thought about Marnine's final words.

"The reason I'm asking is because the prophesy says there will be four who will be joined with a man who is not of our world but who stands firmly in both. They will lead during the changes. It's not the first time that a prophesy from Gaia has come to be." She looked at us.

"Prophesy is vague for a reason Tina, so it can have multiple paths to unfold." She nodded."I want your word that this remains with us."

"Of course, Taiiko. I want to know because I want you to know that you have my support in anyway I can, that's all. I'm not a gossip."

"I think so. It's too early to be sure but I share your sense of anticipation if what the prophesy says is true. How it'll work, I have no idea. There is something you can do for us, if you can. We need to keep us landing in Iceland off the radar of people. You are correct that there are those who want this wedding stopped." She nodded.

"Thank you for trusting me. I'll see what I can do. I need to sit. Enjoy your coffee." Taiiko looked at me sheepishly and squeezed my hand."

"I already sensed it Love, and Ella all but confirmed it last night when she said congratulations." She asked how. "When I shifted the first time in front of you and had my head against your belly. Your scent is changing. I figured that was the reason." She stared at me as I sipped my coffee, thankfully it was still hot.

"You can smell that?"

"Shifted. I know your scent, love." She smiled. "I can't tell the difference like this, but I can when I shift. My sense are getting more acute, more subtle. I'm very happy about and I'll trust Ella on this one. I'm glad I'm joining large clans because we're going to need sitters." She laughed as we took off. I wasn't going to be relieved until we cleared Japanese airspace, and then only until we descended into Reykjavik. Taiiko held my coffee as I opened the pastries. We were both hungry but hadn't noticed.

Most everyone having dinner were still in their work clothes, and considering this was a communal farm, among other things, no one minded, not even Yamaita, because we were all raving about the food, especially the chicken yakitori. I was glad I hadn't had lunch. She was spoiling us, at least she was spoiling me. I left the last of the food without reaching because my mom always told me and my brothers to never take the last of anything and there were many people who worked harder than I did so i pushed my plate a little and they pounced because it was that good. I seemed to have stumbled into this life with these four amazing women and it would be very easy to abuse that position. I wasn't going to do that. I was sure I would have to make tough decisions, and some would be disliked, but I figured if they knew that I cared for their well being then we could work through it. It was like it was in the military, or at least should be, you don't eat until you know your people are being fed. Power and prestige are seductive; i cared for neither. Taiiko put the last piece of her chicken on my plate and held her stomach and smiled at me, as did Yoshi. I kissed her cheek and ate it.

Everyone chatted about the day, but since I couldn't understand I thanked Yamaita, bowed, and started clearing the table, everyone stopped and Taiiko said something as she joined me. They smiled and enjoyed more tea and laughing as we started clearing and soaking plates. We had things soaking when Yamaita, and Yoshi brought in bowls of green tea ice cream...everyone cheered. Yoshi handed me andTaiiko one and picked up his as we leaned against the counter, smiling. It's always better to have happy workers. "This is amazing." They both nodded but they had it before, I never had.

"Yes, it's wonderfully refreshing. I am sorry you had to delay your trip but I am glad you did. Were you able to get all the posts set." I nodded and told him that was the easy part, putting up the wire was the hard work.

"I'm plan on being in Iceland, or Norway, when that happens." We all laughed, but I wasn't kidding. It's a pain in the ass. "What time do we need to leave for the airport?" Yoshi said six. I nodded and looked at Taiiko. "Love, you need to sleep without me tonight because you'll need to deal with the airport." She looked at me me and growled. "Please, if it makes you feel better, you can pack for me." She nodded as we finished washing the dishes and Yoshi rejoined the table.

Taiiko made us some tea and we went to sit on the porch. It was close to eight and twilight was beginning to turn all black. We held hands, rocking in silence, and sipped our tea. People came out and waved goodbye to us. Ren and Jiro walked up. Jiro said, "Ren said that you and excellent worker." I smiled.

"Please tell him thank you and I feel the exact same about both of you. I'm sorry I won't be able to help with the paddocks because I enjoy working with both of you. We make a good team." Jiro translated and Ren got a huge smile on his face. He bowed, as did I.

"Thank you Daniel-san."

"Thank you, Ren. It'll be a strong fence." He nodded and they left. I was going to miss this place. Taiiko squeezed my hand, and kissed it, seems you've made a friend, Daniel." I nodded. I liked Ren. I liked everyone I had met so far, except maybe the cousin, I just needed to learn one of the hardest languages in the world in short order. OY! and that was when I got the headache and Ella walked up.

"Daniel, who is that?" Yoshi walked out smiled, as did Ella.

"That's Ella, she's Chloe and Janey's mom, and sometimes a royal pain in my ass. Let's hope that's not the case now." Ella and Yoshi laughed.

"At least you didn't pass out and hit the ground," which was true. "You need to pay particular attention tonight, Daniel, because the danger is still present and it won't end unless you end it tonight. The threat will still be there going forward, but you must stop the present one tonight, if you are diligent you can." Ella reached out her hand to Taiiko, "It is lovely to meet you young lady. Congratulations. I knew your mother. I still know your mother. She is fine and sends her love and wanted me to tell you that she will communicate with you once Daniel is familiar with her energy. It is easier in the beginning to communicate with someone like Daniel who straddles both worlds. It won't be too long my dear." Taiiko was crying.

"Please tell I love her and miss her everyday."

"I will, Love, but she is keenly aware of that. It won't be long. You'll learn many things with Ama." She looked at me, and there was no mistaking her energy. "You have to end this tonight Daniel because it's important that you are on that plane tomorrow morning and in Iceland. Focus, dear one, and pay attention to your instincts." and she was gone. Taiiko gasped as she squeezed the crab out of my hand.

"It's OK sweets, they take a perverse pleasure in doing that, at least Ella walks up so I can see her." I knew she had questions. I'll try and answer what I can, and share what I know, which isn't a lot, on the plane tomorrow. We have so much to talk about that the flight will go quickly, but I need to go Love." She nodded and hugged me like she was desperate for me to stay, which I'm sure she was. I nodded to Yoshi walked down the steps and to the woods,turned, waved, shifted and ran. I headed to the saw mill. I didn't expect him to go back there but I wanted to check the because as far as I knew there were only two ways onto the property by car, the driveway, and the road to the saw mill. It was a long way to the house which was why I was a little surprised to see a car parked off the road. It was the same scent, and strong, but there were others, at least two, possibly three. I followed the strongest because it was heading to the barn, but also the house. I followed it on the opposite side of the saw mill and stayed well in the woods. I was getting closer. I ran to the barn and waited. I could smell him and was hoping I was close enough to see him. I wasn't. I wished either Annie, or Melissa were here, they were less.... cumbersome. He was heading directly for the house like he knew the way. I ran to the house and circled around it. I was hoping one of Yoshi's abilities was mind reading. I shifted in the woods on the other side of the house and pushed to Yoshi to stay inside and pay attention. He turned the front porch light out. I was hoping that was a sign to his people as well.

I pushed outward to find out who was there. I knew were the one I knew was. I was interested in the others. I moved toward them as quickly, but as quietly as I could. I went to the last one first. He was watching the driveway. I moved in behind him, and growled. He froze and turned as he pointed something at me. I clawed his hand, he dropped and I back handed him into a tree. I was fairly certain he had hurt his shoulder but I didn't care. I shifted and started to disarm him. My senses stayed heightened for up to thirty minutes after after I shifted back to me so I could see well enough as I went through his pockets and it was like he was on a special ops mission. I took everything he had and took off the night vision goggles and the ear piece off. We were keeping these. We were keeping all of it. I hid all of it, just in case and used some of his zip ties to tie him to the tree. I took a rag, stuffed it in his mouth and taped it. He was starting to come to and moaning. I punched him, hard, and he was out. I shifted and moved to the other two and did the same. I pushed but could only feel the one I already knew about.

I moved in behind him but stepped on a branch and snapped it. He froze and then turned. I growled, which scared him. He fired to soon and I ripped a large chunk of his hand off which sent the gun flying. I hit him in the chest. He hit the ground and was knocked out. I shifted and zip tied his arms and legs and dragged him out of the woods toward the house. Four people approached me, two men and two women. I said Yoshi. One nodded and said Hai, and ran to the door. Yoshi walked out by himself. Taiiko stayed inside. He said something to the person that walked back with him. He bowed, grabbed the man by the shirt and dragged him onto the porch. I wouldn't want to fight these people, even the women....especially not the women.

"There are three others down the driveway. They are tied to trees and in varying states of unconsciousness." He chuckled.

"Are you OK? We heard a shot."

"He missed."

"That's fortunate."

"I thought so. Can you call Taiiko? I need to talk with her." He did and handed me me the phone.

"Yoshi. Is D..."

"It's me sweets. I'm fine." She started crying. "It's OK, Love. I'm fine. We'll be in soon. There are some lose ends to clean out, and I need to go back out, but I'll come in before I do."

"You better mister, because I need to to punch you." I laughed and told her OK but to stay inside and away from windows. Call Annie and tell them what you know. There were four of them, armed. We'll be in soon. Two other people were running down the driveway as we started walking.

"One was watching the driveway and road. I've pushed but didn't feel anything else. I reached in my pocket and handed him the earbud and mic. "You might want to put this in. They each had one. One of them is in there and there is a pile of his things hidden in the trees about fifteen feet opposite him. One came dragging him, flipped him and zip tied him again. The other one came out carrying a bunch of stuff, and walked back in for the rest. Yoshi looked at me. "They had a lot of stuff. It's why it took me longer to get back to the house than I wanted." One person stayed with him playing with the goggles. Yoshi said something and he put them down. He both smiled. I was going to that when I could. We walked about a hundred and fifty feet. There's in there but a little deeper in the woods, same with his gear as the last one. I could still smell them.

We walked toward the road. "These guys were heavily armed. I'm not sure about the one closest to the house because I just dragged him out but there is a handgun in the trees, along with part of his hand. I'll find it when I shift again. This was planned out, Yoshi, and if he didn't set the fire it might have worked, whatever it is. There's a car on the dirt road off on the side. I'll go and check it out after I see Taiiko." He nodded. "The other one is in there. I walked in and grabbed the gear while Yoshi's student, one of the women, cut his hands lose and started to drag him out. I was impressed by these people. He reached for throat and she broke his wrist, effortlessly, and kept dragging him out. She put his hands behind his back and tied them. He cried out in pain but none of us had any sympathy. She took a bag out of her pocket and handed it me. I nodded and put the things in and handed it to Yoshi. "Tell her that was impressive. I'm going to check the road in both directions for a mile. I won't be long. Have her turn around." He nodded. She did and I shifted then ran toward the road.

I ran along the side of the road for a mile in both directions but couldn't sense anything. I listened to see if I could hear the high pitch sound of a drone, but couldn't. I zigzagged through the woods on both sides of the driveway and then behind the house and didn't feel anything. I stopped where he was and shifted and looked for the gun. It didn't take long I put it in the back out pants and walked to the house as I pushed. Nothing. Two people stepped out of the shadows. I could tell they were both wearing goggles, for which I was glad. I waved and they waved back as I walked onto the porch and knocked. Yoshi opened the door. Taiiko is right, you do smell. Taiiko ran at me and jumped and then bit my shoulder as she hugged me. She kissed me before getting down and then punched in the chest, at least she alternated. Sara didn't. "You scared me, mister."

"I know, Love, I'm sorry, but I have to go back out. I don't trust that they are alone."

"I know, Yoshi told me." I told her not to worry because I could see better than them even with the night vision goggles. "We know a doctor and he's on his way. He's trustworthy. We're still trying to figure out what to do but he won't be using that hand well ever again.

"Ask the doctor if he can get Pentothal, or something similar, maybe we can get the truth out of them without torture." She looked me. "We need to know what's going and there aren't many ways to do it. They had a lot of weapons, and zip ties." She nodded.

"I need to go Love, but I'll be fine." I walked outside and a ways down the driveway, walked into the woods, shifted and ran to the car. I checked the buildings as I went . It wasn't hard to avoid Yoshi's people because they were close to the buildings and not in the woods. I was very leery about the car I circled it by a hundred yards before approaching it from the woods. I shifted and pushed and felt nothing. I grabbed a large rock and broke the passenger window and unlocked the door I checked the glove box and grabbed the registration and put it in my pocket. I checked under the seats but there was nothing. I popped the trunk and looked, even where the spare was, but there was nothing. I walked into the woods shift and smelled and as I trotted toward the road listening, looking and smelling. There was nothing. I did the same as the driveway and checked in both directions but nothing. If someone had been here they were gone. I hoped there wasn't. I zigzagged through the woods to the driveway and back to the house. I checked the saw mill and barn one more time to be sure and went around behind for about a mile as I headed to the house. I sensed nothing. I shifted and pushed and it was the same. I shifted back and ran to the ridge. I couldn't see, hear, or smell anyone but I needed to talk to Yoshi about this. I headed back to the house, lied down and focused my senses as I waited. I guessed it was probably three and I could tell by their scents that people watching the house were different. I was glad. I waited until almost four to trot through the woods, I shifted and walked out and toward the house This was going to be interesting.

I got close to the house and two people stepped out, looked at me, and waved. I waved backed as they walked back into the shadows. If only I were younger. I knocked on the door and Taiiko opened it. I wasn't surprised. I knew she wouldn't be able to to sleep. "You smell mister. I've already showered you know the drill." I walked into the laundry room and stripped. I handed her the registration. She nodded as she put my boots aside and said we'd leave these clothes here since they were for work. Yamacita will dry and fold them tomorrow." I nodded. Let's get you in the bath before you stink up the entire house. We were walking down the hall when the young woman who broke the man's wrist walked out of the bathroom in front of us. All of us stopped as she stared at me, and smiled. I waved, which made her laugh. What else was I suppose to do, it wasn't like she could un-see me naked. We walked past as she watched me and Taiiko shook her head. She watched until we closed the door. I was tempted to turn around but I didn't want to get hit.

"What is it with you and women." I shrugged and she hit me in the arm before running a bath. I soaked as as Taiiko went to make me some tea. She came in chuckling. "She said I was a very lucky woman and asked if you had a brother." I shook my head and dunked myself. Taiiko put my tea on the counter and washed my hair and rinsed it before bathing me. She told me to stand so she could wash my penis, balls, and butt and my legs. I was starting to get hard. She smiled. "Me or her?" I said who do you think. She smiled and kissed my balls, and then squeezed. "That'll have to wait love because we're running out of time and Yoshi wants to leave earlier after last night in case there is something else. Kana, your newest admirer and someone else, I'm not sure who because I don't know all of them yet, are coming with us just in case. We're all packed. Get dressed and come to the kitchen and I'll introduce you to Kana. She's quite pretty and since she's seen you naked and liked it, it's only fair that she do the same I stared at her. She laughed and kissed me. "Get dressed and bring the bags." Jesus Christ, I was never going to live this down.

Taiiko and Kana were talking and smiling at the table but when I walked out they both stopped and started giggling. She introduced me to Kana and we bowed. "Kana says that you are very different from Japanese, that your...." I said that was enough as I walked onto the the porch to both of them laughing. Holy crap. Yoshi walked out smiling and sat down.

"Every woman here will know about this by the end of the week so you might as well resign yourself to that fact." I nodded. There are worse things, Daniel. The man whose hand you hurt was our cousin. I have calls out to people we trust to discuss what we should do. He's not talking but the doctor gave him pain meds. I have no idea who the other three are but we are thankful for the gifts they brought us, especially the goggles, earbuds, and mics. I nodded and said it leveled the field a bit.

"Those things aren't cheap Yoshi, and on top of all of this you need to listen for drones. It's a high pitch whine." He nodded and reached into his pocket and handed me copies of the id's and passports and I'm sure I turned white. The three men were Finnish.

We had breakfast and headed the burn site. Yoshi was already . We got out of the van and grabbed our gloves as Yoshi walked up. "The guys at the saw mill said a gaijin was putting out a fire on the building but was gone by the time they walked back around. I assume that was you." We all laughed. "What happened?" I told him about the scent and the car and wanting to chase after . He was quiet, but looking at me. "The saw mill is not an easy place especially in the dark."

"No isn't, Yoshi." I hadn't told Taiiko because I'd be telling her grandfather. She was stunned, and now worried because he had moved deeper onto the property. "We were lucky that my timing was good. Saw mills burn quickly. seems personal, and angry." He nodded.

"I'll put more people around the buildings in shifts and people patrolling the woods when you and Taiiko leave tomorrow." We both stared at him. "You have to go. I can take care of things here and I'd feel better if were in Iceland for a while, until the ceremony. We can discuss later. I need you and Jiro head the barn help Ren, Taiiko can help here. We are short staffed and they are putting up fence. I assume you have put up fence before?" I smiled, and nodded. "Excellent. Jiro can translate. Take the van." Jiro and I nodded. I kissed and hugged Taiiko and told her would be OK, and that I loved her, and we headed the barn. I had been building fences with my dad and grandpa since I could remember. It's not all that complicated but it needs be sturdy if animals are involved, which I figured they were. I'd miss Taiiko but I always enjoyed fencing. I didn't care for doing in humidity but that's what we had. Jiro drove the barn.

We walked up and Ren, the lead worker, foreman, waved and walked up as he and Jiro started talking. He walked away and we followed. "Ren said that we are just putting in posts today. We aren't going to fence the field until late winter, but we are going to add to the paddocks sooner. I nodded.

"Metal or wood posts?" Jiro yelled to Ren.

"Cedar. He said we have a lot and they resist rot." I nodded as we walked into the tool shed. Ren grabbed line and post hole diggers, Jiro grabbed two others and I grabbed two metal fence posts in case we weren't using an existing corner post. I also grabbed a hammer and some nail and the pounder. Ren smiled. "We're going to do the field first because 's larger and are three of us, two people can do the paddocks easily." I nodded. 'I liked Ren. He knew what he was doing . We were using an existing post so I hammered a nail into the top of the post, towards the outer edge put the hammer in the loop on my pants, grabbed a large cedar post and the post hole diggers. I motioned to Ren which way and he showed me. I told Jiro to yell when he wanted me stop and then motion were he wanted the corner post. I didn't know how Ren did things considering I was in Japan so I was going off of his lead. I wasn't about to act like I knew better because I didn't.

When my family did fencing we'd mostly eyeball once we got the corner and middle posts set, then was a matter making sure the posts were on the inside of the line since the corner posts are larger. Jiro walked out with a level and two poles tamp the dirt around the post. Jiro and I got the post set. I finished tamping and filling the dirt in around the post as Jiro went get the line. I wrapped around the nail and asked Jiro walk back halfway and let me know when the line was taut, this was were you could really screw things up. Ren was watching and I knew that knew . Anyone has done fencing has broken the cord. 's a fine line been taut, and snapped. I was getting close. I could sense . Jiro raised his arm and I tied off. I grabbed the digger and Ren grabbed a post and we walked the middle. He was smiling. I put the post against the inside of the line since was fairly the edge of the corner posts and looked at him. He nodded and I pound the post into the ground to make a mark and Jiro and Ren took turns digging as I laid posts about every ten feet. I grabbed the other posts and to the outer corner and dropped them. Now that we had the end posts, and middle one in line, would go fairly quickly but was , and humid, as we went in get some water and take a quick break. Taiiko was walking up with the box of cookies, smiling.

"She kissed me. You're all sweaty mister. I like it, too bad are other people here." I smiled because was too bad. "I thought you'd like some cookies." She opened the box and Ren and Jiro pounced. "That's a large field." I nodded. "You know what they are going to use for?" I told her I assumed would be for more animals in the spring, and they would do rotational grazing." She looked at me and started talking with Ren as Jiro and I grabbed another cookie. She hugged me and looked up. "You were right." She stood on her toes and kissed me. "I need to get back so we can get the site cleaned up." 's an architect in the family in Osaka. She's coming up tomorrow or the next day to at the site and talk with the family. She's going deal with the permits because they are pain." I told her they were a pain everywhere. She waved and headed back to Yoshi. I walked to the other corner post to see if the middle one lined up and it looked good so we started setting posts. It took us a couple of hours to get the first line in the ground and then we set the second corner post and the middle one and took a lunch break.

It was a decent morning of work, or as my grandfather would say, "It's good enough for government work." I smiled because I could still hear him say it at every break and when he called it a day. Jiro and Ren offered me part of their lunch. I told Jiro thanks but I wasn't hungry. Yoshi walked up and spoke to Ren first since was the lead worker. Ren nodded and smiled, so did Jiro. "It looks good Daniel." I nodded and told him that Jiro and Ren were excellent workers and Ren knew his stuff." He nodded. Do you think it'll be done by the end of the day?" I nodded because I figured Ren was thinking the thing I was, "'s our fence so we finish ." 's smarter anyway because we knew how we were aligning .

"I'm guessing Ren and Jiro are thinking the thing I am. We'll get the posts in the ground." He looked around.

"You have no lunch." I told him about Jiro and Ren and how I wasn't hungry.

"Taiiko and I had a big breakfast." He smiled, said goodbye and headed back the house site. We rested in the shade for about fifteen minutes until Ren got up and we grabbed posts to lay out. Jiro grabbed the level and we stared digging. It was probably close to four when we started on the last section, none of us were stopping. We had almost fours hours of daylight left and the wasn't that hard because the ground was reasonably soft. None of talked because he had developed a routine and we made a good team. Ren and Jiro were tamping in the last post as I walked back out and undid the line and went and got the metal fence posts we didn't use and the tamper, and checked to make sure we didn't leave anything. We didn't. Jiro and Ren were walking to the barn, laughing, so I headed too. I figured was almost six. We put the tools away and got some water. Ren held out his hand, smiling, and we shook, which was interesting. We both nodded because we both had respect for each other. I already respected Jiro. Taiiko walked up and spoke to Ren and Jiro. I assumed she was inviting them to dinner by the smile on their faces, and the nods.

"Would you like to walk back to the house mister?" I was tired but I would never say no to Taiiko if I didn't have too. I nodded and went to wash up. I took my shirt off and washed the sweat and grime off, as best I could and ran my head under the faucet. It felt great. I put my shirt back on and impropriety was out the window. Jiro and Ren raced to do the . Taiiko and I both laughed and said goodbye. Having a gaijin around had 's benefits. We were walking toward the house when I said,

"Too bad we didn't have a woman working with us." I knew I was going to get . Taiiko looked at me in utter disbelief and me, hard, in the chest, and then we both laughed. She shook her head as she took my hand. was a good day.

"You made quite the impression on Ren, all of my family, at least those you've met." I told her I liked to work. She bit my arm and hugged me. I asked how her day was. She smiled. "Not as hard as yours, but good. We got it done. Yamaita's family is still upset but they are working through it. They saved the things of meaning to them. The rest can be replaced. The site looks good. Yoshi and I were looking at it and wondering if was a better place for the new house. We'll see what the architect says but the original site as all the system already ." I nodded. "I know you're hesitant leave Yoshi alone but he can take care of himself and I'm equally concerned about my sisters." I nodded because I was too. "Take a shower before dinner and we can relax on the porch." I shook my head.

"That's why I washed at the barn. 's no sense because I am going smell after I get done tonight." She nodded. "They'll have to deal, or I'll eat out here." She smiled.

"You mean we'll eat here, don't you mister?" I kissed her and told her yes as we walked in for dinner.

We headed to the truck. "Is everything OK?" She nodded.

"I've known her my entire life and she's had her role but things are beginning to change because I am stepping into mine and it causes friction until we find balance. She wouldn't take no for an answer so I stopped it. It'll be fine. I'll talk with her when we return." She handed me the keys. "You drive." I was good with directions and always paid attention in case I ever had to drive back somewhere if something happened. The village wasn't too far. We went to the shoe store first. Taiiko went to the counter and I sat down to take off the boots I got the day before. She brought my old boots back, smiling and asked if I was happy. I smiled and nodded.

"Please tell them that the other boots are wonderful." She nodded while I put on my work boots. We waved and walked to the tea house. I opened the door, we walked in , and I stopped. Taiiko could feel the shift. The scent that I followed was there, strong. I lead us to the table in the corner and watched. It didn't take long before I knew who it belonged to. I pointed at the man, maybe mid to late thirties and pointed. "Do you know him?" He turned and saw us looking at him and hurried out of the shop. I was getting up to follow him when Taiiko stopped him.

"I know who he is, kinda. He's a cousin but we never see them except at the family gatherings. I don't know much about him, or that side except they are family. We can speak with Yoshi. Do you trust me to order?" I kissed her and said of course. She came back carrying a big box of cookies and we chatted until they brought breakfast. There was a big plate of scrambled eggs and vegetables and a friend potato and vegetable type pancake only it was thicker, both were amazing. We finished, had another cup of tea, and walked to the van and went to help work. I pulled into the driveway and parked to the side as we went to talk with Yoshi. Taiiko told him about the cousin.

"I know who you mean. I'll call his father later this evening." I asked.

"Can you check with the couple, later, and she if they are in any kinda of trouble, financial or otherwise, or if they have enemies?" He nodded. "This whole thing seems strange because it doesn't seem random. The house is too far out of town and too far down the drive." He noded and handed us gloves.

"I will. Take the charred wood and throw it into a pile. We'll take it the garden after lunch and then start sifting through the remains to see if we can find anything for them, even something." We nodded and got to work. We worked several hours as the farm truck pulled in and backed down to the charred wood. Two of the garden crew got out and waved as the lead took two baskets to Yoshi and he called for lunch. Taiiko and I weren't hungry so we helped with loading the wood figuring the sooner we were done, the sooner we could have tea and cookies. We both room had for that. It didn't take long. The workers ate but Taiiko and I just had tea cookies, which everyone loved it. We went back to sifting through ash and debris for several more hours. We put what we found in baskets. Yoshi called it a day and everyone started heading to their homes. We put the baskets in Yoshi's van and the tools in ours before we said goodbye and drove home. It was a decent days work. We were going to look through one more time and then put the rest of the debris in the truck and the ash in buckets. We probably could have been done all today if we hadn't slept in, and then had breakfast.

Taiiko and I walked to the house, holding hands, laughing about something as we took our boots off and went inside. She went into the kitchen and walked down the hall into the bedroom. I was in the bathroom undressing when she walked in and started to do the same. I finished folding my clothes and started with hers as she finished. "Everything OK?" She smiled and nodded. "Good, she's too good a cook to get her mad at us." We both laughed and got in the shower. We bathed each other, dried and got into comfortable clothes and then walked to the porch and sat down to wait for Yoshi. Yamaita brought lemonade out and set it down. We both bowed and said thank you. I pour us some and we rocked and held hands until Yoshi pulled up. He brought over a chair and poured a glass. It hit the spot because it was hot and muggy.

"They said they have no issues, and enemies that they know about. They were both inside when they started smelling smoke so they looked around and then went outside and the side of the house burning and it was on the roof, the hose wouldn't reach so they tried to salvage as much as they could until it became to dangerous and then waited for the fire department. The person that came up was driving down the road sped toward us. They said they knew know one who would do such a thing."

"Unless there was faulty wiring, and it only burned outward, which seems unbelievable, that means someone deliberately set it, which is risky with people inside, and dumb because arson is bad enough but murder is a whole lot worse. I'm curious why your cousin's scent was there, and he hurried out so quickly. He obviously recognized you, and could tell we were looking at him, that I was looking at him." Yoshi nodded and said he'd call after dinner but needed a shower. I called the girls and put it on speaker, they were ecstatic. I got to say hello and goodbye but it was a good call because they had all bonded.

Taiiko and I walked into the bedroom, got naked and climbed on the bed to make love since we couldn't later. We kissed, touched, licked, sucked and bit before she lied on top of me and made love. We weren't in a hurry. I came and we snuggled and kissed until I got hard again and did it again only this time, afterward we drifted to sleep in each other's arms for about an hour. It was seven and we got dressed and went to have dinner. Taiiko and I did the dishes as Yoshi sat on the porch thinking. We thanked Yamaita for dinner and went out to join Yoshi for a bit.

"I'm a little concerned to leave you to handle this by yourself, Yoshi. Taiiko says that you'll be fine but since we don't know what we're up against...." He interjected.

"It'll be fine Daniel, but thank you for your concern. I have skills you are unaware of. Taiiko smiled and nodded. It would be good for you to patrol again tonight, and maybe tomorrow night before you leave. I am going to post patrols around all the buildings. I'll keep people out of the woods until you're gone. It'll give the members of the dojo real world stealth training. We all smiled. It was almost dark when I stood up. I could feel Taiiko not wanting me to go but she knew it was smart so she just kissed me and told me to be careful. I nodded and walked to the edge of the woods, shift, turned to look at them and snorted before I ran into the trees. I headed to the ridge Yoshi took me to that overlooked the river. It's where I'd come up. I looked and smelled. Nothing. I shifted back and pushed, because I couldn't when I had shifted. Nothing. I shifted again and ran along the ridge for a mile and turned back to the house and circled it, making sure to avoid the guards. I zigzagged my way to the barn and did the same along with the dojo and wood shop.

I headed to the saw mill because I had good sense where it was. As I got closer I smelled that same scent and ran. The fire had just started but no one was around. I wanted to go after the car because I could have caught it and spun it out, instead I shifted and ran to the saw mill and yelled. I found a shovel and started throwing dirt at the base and on the wall but it was starting to gain speed. Three guys ran around the side and saw what was happening, two grabbed shovels, the third called Yoshi and ran to grab the hose and dosed the roof and the wall until the flames were out. Luckily, my timing was OK. They started walking to the other side to check on things so i shifted and ran down the road. I lost the scent at the main road, again, but it was the same one. I zigzagged back to the burned house and then did the same back to the main house. I checked around it, and the barn again. Nothing. I walked back home and lied down in the woods and watched, listened, and smelled until sometime after three. I shifted and pushed, still nothing. I tried holding the scent in my mind and pushing but I only got flashes. Shame I couldn't push when I was shifted. I'd have to talk with Ama about that. I walked up to the house, took my shoes off and walked in. Taiiko was waiting for me and smiled.

"I'll kiss you after I bathe you, Love." I told she could have gone to sleep. " I sleep when you sleep." She lead me into the laundry and I stripped as she threw my clothes in the wash and led me down hall to bathe me. "The bear is growing on me, but it still stinks." I nodded. After the bathed I got into bed, Taiiko took off her nightgown and climbed over me. She snuggled against my right side and put her head on my chest. I had my arm around her with my hand on her butt. I got the better deal. We were both tired and fell asleep quickly. I woke to her mouth licking and sucking me. I pulled her legs to me and she eagerly accommodated. We licked and sucked each other until we both came. Taiiko turned, smiling, and crawled up me and we kissed other deeply, sharing the last taste of each other. We got ready and went for breakfast.

Taiiko hugged we walked the kitchen, but I knew, because Annie knew, and that there only other place who knew about and Taiiko, and it was part of this clan. We walked into the kitchen and Taiiko sat down and heated a roll she smiled at . She warmed a piece of pork and put pickled cabbage it. I just watched, and smiled, because I was looking forward it. She turned off the burner and moved the griddle pan off the heat and got some cheese out of the fridge and cut a nice piece, placed the sandwich, put it back the not burner, and pushed the top bun down for a few seconds. She took it off, cut it in half, and smiled. I smiled, she laughed. She handed the plate and I grabbed half my sandwich, and so did she. Taiiko finished hers before , but it was a good sandwich. I told her that as I kissed her, even though it was only half a sandwich.... I wasn't going to quibble. She smiled, kissed , and burped, and then laughed with her hand her mouth I shook my head.

"Can you pour some sake? It's your grandfathers' study, and it's not my place, and that was when Yoshi walked in, disturbed. He looked at us and asked if I had eaten. She smiled, and nodded. They were alike...beer, food, it didn't matter. Yoshi poured us sake and downed it, so I did the . I'm not stupid. He poured us another cup Taiiko stared at us in disbelief. I drank hers too because she ate half of the sandwich she made for .

The fire started the outside of the house. We know people and he looked at the scene. It's not conclusive, but I'm going with it even though I don't understand it. I drank another cup and held it out because I was going shift and it wouldn't matter. Yoshi poured both of us a cup and Taiiko took hers, I smiled.

I took a sip. "The only people that know about and Taiiko are her sisters, and Ama, and and people from the pig roast, or in town, and Marnine. He stared at and downed his cup, and poured another. He was both upset, and scared.

"Will you shift for us, Daniel. I drank the rest of my sake and nodded as Taiiko stared at . Yoshi grabbed flashlights and told us to follow him, We walked a good quarter of a mile into the forest. I didn't know where I was; but I knew exactly where I was, and Yoshi knew that.

"Please, Daniel-san." I walked Taiiko and kissed her.

'I'm sorry, Love, but I won't be back until dawn, but I'll be fine. You need trust ." She bit the neck, and slapped . I stepped backed turned, and looked at them. I walked Taiiko and snuffed, I nudged her. She looked at and started scratched my ears. I lied down, and groaned she climbed started scratch my neck and jaw. I wanted it go forever but I had work do. I stood, which startled Taiiko and she jumped down. I walked her and put my head into her and waited. She hugged my neck and scruffled my ears. I looked at her and then walked Yoshi. I looked at him and he nodded. I looked back at Taiiko, and ran into the forest.. Taiiko fell her knees and cried.

I ran Yoshi told her my role, which applied to her well. I ran the perimeter of the land and worked my in the center, which was the house that burned, and the main house. I wanted know if anyone was walking in these woods, because they shouldn't be since it wasn't hunting season. That was when Marnine appeared in front of .

'What are you doing love?" She was nervous, very nervous. I went around her and she appeared in front of again. "YOU will not take what I spent a millennia creating Daniel, not for your bitches, not even the new one. I shifted and stood in front. "We won't let you."

'Who, Marnine? Who won't let ?' She stared , scared. I had tried, but I was done. I walked her, grabbed her by the back of the neck I pushed my hand into the hole where heart had been. She tried to shift but Gaia was having none of it. The roots were already growing around us I pulled the power of Gaia. Marnine looked at terrified, but I no longer cared. I summoned Gaia, and pushed, and the essence of Marnine was gone. I hoped I didn't have kill her a third time. The roots moved around us and took Marnine's body, into the Earth, were she belonged, to wait. It was done, I bowed my head, shifted, and ran until close to dawn. The only scents around, were around the house that burned. I followed them as far as could but lost them because of the road. I spent two hours circling the house in expanding circles. Nothing. I shifted, and pushed. I felt no threat, so I walked in. Taiiko was sitting, waiting, for . She hugged .

"You smell, mister. You need take a bath before you get into my bed." She took my hand and led the laundry room. "Strip." I took my clothes off and she put them in the washer, hot, with extra soap. I can't say I blamed her.. She grabbed my hand and led me her bedroom. We walked into the bathroom and she ran another bath, only she wasn't getting in. I got in and went under the water, and stayed longer than I should before I came smiling. She punched twice in the chest. I lied back.

"Do my sisters think you are a pain in their asses?" I nodded. "I thought so." She more times, hard. "That's for them." I nodded, because it was still hard for me speak because I had just shifted not long ago and was only half back, part of was still watching. Taiiko kissed and bathed so I could share her bed. She rinsed , dried and I got into bed naked because everything else was packed. I kissed her and fell asleep as she was asking questions. Taiiko curled into like I was a pillow until ten. I jolted, which woke her , but I was pushing because Marnine wasn't alone and I knew the scent. Taiiko looked at , smiled, grabbed and got hard. It was morning for so it didn't take much, and put inside her and rode until I came inside of her. She smiled she leaned forward and kissed .

"You are full of surprises, but we need go and get your boots, mister." I nodded. We didn't shower, just went the bathroom, brushed, dressed and walked the kitchen. Yamaita met us at the kitchen and Taiiko spoke with her, and then harshly. She bowed. Taiiko walked and touched her head and explained what we were doing. Yamaita bowed we walked out and got into her car and headed to town.

"There is going to be more of that because they grew with , and had charge over . It's not your concern, Daniel." I took her hand and told her that of her concerns were my concerns, period. She looked at , smiled, and squeezed my hand, hard. We drove town.

Jiro and I pulled in the vans and backed . Mine was empty. I grabbed gloves and a shovel and walked Yoshi and Taiiko. "I'm sorry I didn't tell you sooner, love, but this needs wait for another time. Can you get some people and get the house ready for them? Yoshi it might be good for you help because you know it, and also contact people for clothes, personal need supplies. I'm sorry, but I grew up in the West and embers travel and the last thing WE want is for these woods catch fire. Jiro can translate. You said it, Love, we have be a team." She hugged .

"Hai!." Her and Yoshi walked her car and left. I told Jiro to gather the men that were and have them grab a shovel or rake. They came back but they just stood there looking at me.

"Tell them to grab a shovel, or a rake, and spread out in the forest for a mile looking for anything smoldering, and put thm out."

'I told them Daniel." GODDAMMIT. "I want you to transl verbatim for . You understand the meaning of verbatim?" He nodded, and I yelled.

"GRAB A GODDAMM SHOVEL OR RAKE AND GET YOUR ASSES IN THE WOODS LOOKING FOR EMBERS. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU. YOU WANT THESE TREES BURN." They stared at . FUCK! I started grabbing them and pulling the van.

"GRAB ONE, GODDAMMIT!" Jiro translated, and they did, but still looked at . Jesus fucking Christ a roll. "Tell them spread out in the trees because if the trees catch fire, we won't be able stop it.." They looked at and ran into the woods. FUCK!

Jiro grabbed the last rake. "It's nothing personal Daniel, but we don't speak like that." I looked at him and said that was because you haven't watched houses destroy while you're breathing in the smoke. You can apologize for later, right now I want make sure there aren't smoldering embers." He nodded.

"I'll go this way along the, and you move that way. We'll move in and away from the road and meet back at the house. Get back before it's dark, Daniel. It's easy get turned around in these woods especially in the dark, and if you hear something, ignore it." I nodded. I had walked until what I figured was eight. I hoped the rest did the because I tamped out few soldering embers. I had walked at least a mile, It's was probably still a little bit light outside of the forest but Jiro wasn't kidding. These forests were thick. It gave an idea since Yoshi said he had a sawmill.

I wasn't concerned about finding my back. I could shift and easily find my way Taiiko, or Yoshi, but I knew where I was. I just walked longer than I thought. I walked out of the woods as people were sifting through the rubble, because my boots were at the cobbler, I couldn't. I was filthy, and tired, and I smelled of God knows what as i walked the the house, and the vans. Jiro smiled, Yoshi pointed. Taiiko ran full out, and pounced. She landed and bit my shoulder she wrapped her legs around , and hugged . I kept telling her I was fine. She jumped down, looked at , slapped in the face, and walked away with my phone. Shit.. I walked the van and Yoshi hand a litre of water, he smiled.

"Get use it times," he counted his fingers because he's an asshole, "four. You might want prepare for the when you do go back Iceland. Taiiko is a sister, now." I nodded and drank water. "Did you find embers?' I nodded. " Everyone found a few but put them out. We are lucky about that." Jiro walked and gave some kind of stew, and a piece of bread. I didn't even know what it was, but I devoured it, and that is when Taiiko walked . She took the bowl and handed it to Jiro, and openly kissed in front everyone. She wasn't shy about it, and everyone was watching, and smiling.

"I'm sorry I walked away from, Daniel. I have long, complicated stories too. May I wait to tell you?" I kissed her and said of course. The guys the I yelled at walked and patted the back before going home. I stared at what was a home and swore if Marnine, or anyone associated with had done that, I would end her. She was cutting close the quick. I looked at Taiiko and Yoshi.

"Are they settled?" They both smiled and nodded. Taiiko squeezed .

"The community came together, it always does, with things they might need, or that would give some comfort. We got them set , and ready. They have food, They have what they need exist until we rebuild their house, which we will. It won't be easy but we'll be back tomorrow morning to look through things, except you and I are going to the Village, getting cookies, and getting your boots. Yoshi and I both agreed. He hadn't started and we'd rather them you than those shoes because they walk through fire without fear." We laughed. Jiro drove his van back. "After you eat something else, we need call the girls. They are worried and said it didn't matter what time, which means it doesn't matter what time." I nodded I hugged her. I suppose the kami didn't want leave quite yet. I looked at Yoshi.

"Your kami are poweful , Yoshi." He smiled, and nodded. I was beginning wonder if free will really did into things. He told us to go home, clean , eat and have some sake in his study. I wasn't going say no that.

"I need talk with these folks about things."

He looked at , and while I wanted know, I nodded and I followed Taiiko home in the other van. We walked in and the older women came out, walked , and hugged , and went back into the kitchen. I stared at Taiiko. I prayed to Gaia that she could help learn languages quicker than I thought I could learn them. She smiled, took my hand, and led back our room. She ran a bath, undressed , and got undressed we touched each other while we waited.

"Yamaita is the eldest of her family. They've been with my family since before I was born. I remember her from when I was young. She was always very nice, unless you did something wrong." I smiled "The couple whose house burned, it was her sisters' and brother-in-laws. She was terribly worried because word spread. Word also spread about you mister." She turned off the water and we soaked, and talked. "Everyone knows who you are, who we are, and what you did without thinking. Jiro talked with those men when they came back. They waited to see when you would, everyone did. They will never do that again and you won't have to say word. You came back over an hour later, in the dark.... you scared the crap out of me, but I'm just, probably pregnant. It had an impact, and you need to have an impact to get through to them, but seem to know, either with a carrot, or a heavy stick. You need to learn Japanese." I nodded as I dunked under the water and push my shin against her pussy as she laughed, and squealed. I came back up.

"Are you getting frisky, mister?' I nodded as she moved toward me. She grabbed me, squeezed, and started rubbing as she landed on my chest, and started kissing me. She pushed me into her, as she kept kissing me, and biting me. I was doing the work this time, but I didn't want to clean up water on the floor so I move slow, but deep...that look was back in her eyes, and probably mine, as we kissed, and stared. Taiiko was getting ready to come because I was rubbing bother her clit, and g-spot against me, inside, and out, but me coming was what matter to her, and I came. I pushed her hips onto me and pushed as deep into her as I could while I came.

These people didn't view pregnancy, or marriage, the I grew with. I still wasn't sure why I took to it so easily, but most people would be shocked, yet they are worried where they are going to find care. We didn't have that problem. Our lives were unusual in how many of us were pregnant, but none of these people cared, as long as you were family, part of the clan, part of the tribe. We were part of the tribe.

Taiiko looked at and smiled she nip my cheek. "You have a lot sperm and semen, sweets. She nipped me again. "I over compensated because I thought we were leaving tomorrow, but the kami weren't having it." She smiled, and nodded.

"You know that I am fucking you at least twice tonight, right? Whether you are awake, or not." I nodded as she reached down and grabbed my balls, and moved of as me she stood , and stepped onto the wooden mat. There was only marginal water on the floor. "We need to get you something to eat and i don't want to hear about it, mister." I nodded as I stood . I got into my sweat and Taiiko got into her nightgown and then a fluffy robe, and slippers. that looked similar to the boots she bought , only ankle height. "We can deal with the bathroom later, it'll be fine. We need call the girls." I nodded.

They all yelled Daniel at the . "Hi Loves, I'm fine. How are you? Are you paying attention? Don't rely on that being neutral land." They were silent because no one knew what say. Annie spoke, which was I called her.

"What do you mean, Daniel?"

"I mean that you, we, can't trust the past, and the norms, as if they matter anymore. People form Finland tried kill you, and we don't exactly who you is,.Jaak is Finnish." Annie was quiet because she knew Jaak was Roan's fiance.

"'s Chloe. I need talk with Ama." That was why I called Annie.

"Hi Chloe." They were all there, even Jake and Emily. I talked them down, and reconnected , especially with Jake, and Emily. I told them what I wanted to tell them in person. They were probably rolling their eyes too when Annie got backed on and walked outside.

"Is that why we brought guns in. Did you know about this?"

"I brought those because I thought someone was trying to kill you, now I think they are trying to kill all of us. The only reason I am here is because I can shift, and they can't." I could feel her nod. "We'll get there as quickly as possible, which should be tomorrow evening, or the day after. I'm going to run tonight."

"How will Taiiko like that since you aren't leaving?" She chuckled.

"You're a pain. She won't but I can cover more ground and pick things. They are coming after both clans but no one knew about Taiiko, and , except Marnine. Does she still have family?"

"I'll ask Ama because I'm not sure. Ama is bringing in her oldest friends help. They are their way. I'll keep us safe , Love. We are better prepared, so attention." I told her I would. "It's only you Daniel and you are the one person none of want to lose so attention. Call if find anything. I don't care what time is." I told her I would, and that I adored her, and to say the everyone else, and hung . She didn't say it because she knew Taiiko was listening, but I felt it LOUD and clear. I looked at Taiiko.

"We need talk with Yoshi."
