We start the round with Shell working on little Amulius’ skills.
Meanwhile Trean gets into a heated argument with his father in law.
What started as an argument soon turned physical.
I’m pretty sure Trean’s going to pay for this. It is the emperor after all.
Trean: “How dare you clean my house!”
Solar didn’t get the message, he just stuck around doing grandfatherly things.
Or he tried until Trean whisked whatever it was away from him.
Shell fawns over her soon to be niece or nephew quite possibly while questioning her father’s sanity when he shows up the morning after his and Trean’s disagreement.
Luckily for a certain emperor someone is distracted by the twins.
Dreda is soon captivated by Amulius.
There are plenty of beds and it isn’t like Solar is homeless but most nights he seems to be passed out in a plate of food somewhere.
Shell gave birth to baby Valeria. They just need one more baby now and they can stop.
The nursery is crowded with three little ones.
Dreda joins her father in food napping.
Solar: “These pancakes taste off.”
Shell: “Those are from three days ago.”
Another set of twins grew to childhood.
Aetius went first.
But Amulius soon followed.
Amulius was cleaning as soon as he was all made over.
Aetius all made over.
Shell was soon expecting another baby.
Valeria grew into a toddler. She has Fisher skin and hair and Moran eyes. She looks a lot like a Dusk I reckon.
This family is one of the many who are more concerned with having the next baby than looking after the existing kids as Valeria demonstrates.
A bout of flu takes it’s toll on Trean.
This is becoming a more common occurrence in my game than I would like but without Trean who will plot to kill the emperor?
Shell won. Amulius is already concerned with more pressing things, like cleaning.
The brothers do find the time to play.
Trean taught Aetius to play chess.
Trean: “Can you keep it down love some of us are trying to sleep.”
The baby is another girl named Mariana.
