on Destiny Island
*his fingers worked on the blond’s scalp as he spoke* I am supposed to be the sick one, not you. *a troubled whisper, obvious reference to her pregnant state. The woman moving back when the blond made too* I take it you do not want dinner then. Do you want me to leave you alone?
“You’re already pass that stage either way.” Even responded with a sigh as Lumaria massaged his scalp, the sensation quickly starting to make him relax. “I’ll need to eat something, Lumaria. Or drink something, at least, after all of…this.” He continued to answer the pinkette, nose wrinkling in disgust when he referenced the mess his body had created. “And I’d be lying if I said I wanted you to leave me alone while I’m like this. But, you can help me back to bed and go back down stairs if you want. You still need to feed the children, right? Wash your hands before you do.”
You are hardly fine… *a troubled whisper as the pinkette carefully watched the other, hands soon gently petting over the arched over man’s hair* An hour or two… how long have you been sick?
**he refrained from pushing his previous insistence further with Lumaria already worried over him, instead letting his eyes slide shut as his spouse’s hands smoothed over his hair** It’s probably just a stomach flu again.**lightly mumbled as his stomach gurgled uncomfortably, Even then attempting to sit back up from his arched over position on his knees** Yesterday or perhaps the night before, it occurred gradually up to now.
*makes noises at once locating him and sets her beloved bowl of potatoes to the side* Even, love, *cooes at, moves to hold hair back*
**thin body marginally shutters as the former academic attempts to swallow back rising bile, fatigued gaze slowly moving to peer out of the corner of his eyes at the pinkette who had so suddenly appeared at his side** I’m fine. **he begun to faintly insist, knowing the younger individual’s dislike of the emesis that typically came with his sicknesses** How long have you been home?
**sick and miserable in one of the upstairs bathrooms**
