take me part 534...edited?

Aydar didn't seem to be a threat, and if he involved then he good enough to fool four people who aren't easily fooled, but that didn't ease my worry. Charming doesn't mean you aren't a viper. I knew the girls could defend themselves, but what I concerned about that they might know they needed to until it too late. Roan obvious. My concern that Aydar had a similar intent but with more guile and charm. Fuc Jakob looked at me and motioned. I excused myself and walked to the kitchen. Emma feeding the workers first, which good.

"I couldn't find a hook knife but I thought we had one. I can check tomorrow when there is more light." I nodded.

"We have draw knives, I'm guessing, and files."

"A lot and they are obvious when you walk in the tool shed. You me to get some?" I shook my head as I grabbed my coat and a flashlight.

"Nope, you enjoy Emma's meal and dessert. Thanks for checking." Living in Colorado for as long as I had cold weather nothing new for me, but this new. The flashlight almost useless because of the blowing snow, luckily I knew where I going. Fenrir walked up beside me.

"It's getting worse, brother." I nodded. "I told the wolves not to patrol. It's too cold to be outside." I nodded.

"Good, because you're right. I don't sleep much so I'll push and make sure there are no threats. I doubt there will be but I have to leave tomorrow to go back to the past. This has to break in a day or two. How much meat do you have?"

"Enough for five days but our scouts are for dead animals as well and there will plenty. We'll watch over your family even though we probably don't need to, none us would to fight them." I laughed and nodded.

"They are formidable, that's a fact my friend." He bumped my leg, howled, and ran off as I walked to the tool shed. I turned on the light and the draw knives were obvious. We could get more so I took two and couple of files. It probably wasn't the best to sharpen them but it would do. I wanted to see if Hammish could make the knife, or even the file but I didn't know the quality of what he used. I was leery of bringing too much back to them but I could walk through time and we had a lot of work to do and who's to say when the origin of the draw knife was?" It's not all that complicated and we had lots of building to do. I walked back into the kitchen as the crew was starting their dessert and put the knives and files down as Anna jumped on me.

"Do I know you?" She laughed and hugged me.

"I found what you wanted, Da'." I kissed her forehead and smiled at her.

"Thank you. We can get you more next time someone goes into town. Are you hungry?"


"Well, hopefully these lunkheads left us some." They all shook their head. Annika had become the adopted younger sister to all of them. She grabbed my hand as we walked into the dining room and I pulled the chair out for her. She smiled as I pushed it in and sat next her as the girls smiled and we started to fill our plates. This was going to be a good meal. Everyone chatted through dinner and dessert. I started picking up plates.

"You're with me munchkin." Annika smiled and started doing the same as her mom, Klara, stood up. "Nope, I'm very good at doing dishes. You can stay there." She nodded. "I told Emma she was off as Anna and I cleaned up and put the leftovers away. She nodded and took her pie and tea to her room. Taiiko walked in.

"I'd like two new people watching Aydar's men tonight. She nodded.

"You and my grandfather will get along well. You are both steeped in tradition." She smiled and kissed me. "That was a compliment, Dragon. I was going to do the same thing." She hugged me. 'We'll be fine, Love. You worry too much." I nodded. "We are going to miss you."

"Ama is going to help with the time thing so it seems like we were gone less here but we can have time in the past to start somethings." Aya was an unexpected thing." She smiled and nodded.

"Ya' think?" I laughed. "It's a wise decision and it seems you sense the need for strong alliances, as do I even though I couldn't say why. Yoshi and Ama know, I'm sure, but neither are saying." I told her to get used to it because all of them were pretty tight lipped. She nodded as she kissed both of us and went to sit by the fire and have tea. We were almost finished when Eba and Klara walked in.

"We need to get you ready for bed Missy."

"I'm not done yet."

"Listen to your mom, Anna. There's not much to do and I can deal with it." She hugged me and nodded as did Klara and Eba. "Did you leave the light on at Ama's?" They nodded. "Good because it's a blizzard out there. Hold hands and lock onto the porch light. I'm serious because it's very easy to get disoriented....never mind. I'm going with you."

They laughed, "Sweets, it's a hundred yards...."

"Exactly. A hundred yards is long way in a blizzard." They didn't argue because people have frozen to<b> death </font></b>getting lost walking shorter distances. Our brains don't seem equipped to deal well with swirling snow because it's so disorientating. I grabbed my coat and walked them back to Ama's and I was glad I did because the snow had gotten worse, and it was colder. I walked back to the main house and pushed but felt nothing. I hoped that continued. I walked into the family room to get some tea and sat by the fire to warm up. They all looked me.

"I walked them back to Ama's because there's a blizzard." They nodded. Aydar looked at me.

"May I speak freely, Danael?"

"Of course, Aydar."

"I have the sense that you don't trust me." You could hear a pin drop.

"I don't, but I don't distrust you either. Watching you and Aya helped to assuage some of my concern but you are correct. I trust my family and the wolves that protect us. I am slow to trust others because of past events, but you are now family and have given me no reason not to trust you, Aydar, nor have your men." He was quiet as he held Aya's hand and whispered something in her ear.

"I would do the same, brother. I look forward to proving that you can trust me because you have already shown me that you are worthy of Aya." I nodded. "Thank you so much for opening your home to us, especially tonight. The meal was wonderful and Emma is a gift you should treasure." We all nodded. "If you will forgive me I am going to say goodnight. It's been a long couple of days. He hugged and kissed the girls and shook my hand. "You will come to trust me Danael, and we share the same purpose of keeping them safe." I nodded. He said good night and went upstairs to his room. Everyone looked at me.

"What? I'm not charmed by the accent. Did you see Halle?" Annie and Aya laughed and nodded. We sat together on the couch watching the fire in silence until it was just coals. The fireplace was stone and the floor in front was tile but I made sure the screen was secure as we locked up and went back to Ama's house.

"I can see why you wanted to walk them back and here we all thought you were just being a mother hen," Annie smiled and kissed me as Aya and Taiiko laughed. I pushed again as we walked back and got ready for bed. In the back of my mind I still thought this would be the time for someone to try something, at least we were all together.
