Aberrant: The Middle Children of History - Family Matters [Mature] [Complete]


Recommended Posts

Aurora was no longer living in the appartments she'd been in, she'd chosen to move in with Conner, with his blessing. To make matters easier for her, Conner had purchased a large dwelling outside of Seattle a bit, hidden in the trees, and on a rather high elevation, which gave it a truely lovely view.

The house was mostly made of wood, with two stories, and a basement, and it was quite a lovely place, especially after they had layered the floor with thick carpets, and lovely furnature. There was even a jacuzzi on the lower deck outside, well hidden from the surroundings, by the trees, and the gate around the property.

It had been a rather rough day today in the city, but she'd managed to deal with quite a few problems, carry out a few rescues from a colapsed building, and even deal with another Nova trying to make a name for herself by beating Seattle's Defender.. fortunatly, that one had ended on fairly good terms, but that Nova hadn't been trying to hurt anyone, so they had fought more carefully, and Aurora had won, of course.

At the moment, however, after a busy day, Aurora was soaking in the jacuzzi, wearing nothing but her skin, thinking it was time to talk with Conner about visiting her family.

Connor ported to his Seattle home and smiled. walking through the house he didn't see his fiancee, though he did hear the jacuzzi and easily put two and two together.

Knowing her penchant for doing so nude, he quickly stripped his own clothing and snuck his way into the room an grabbed her soulders as she sat against the side, massaging her shoulders.

"Honey, I'm home."

It took considerable dexterity and skill to sneak up on someone as perceptive as Aurora, but Conner had the natural dexterity needed to do so. Still, there was little hint of suprise from her, instead she leaned into his touch, and tilted her head back so that she could look up at him.

"Hello, darling, how was your day?"

he smiled stopping his massage only to climb into the hottub next to her. "Things went well enough. Zack's ready to shoot now, so we'll be starting in a couple of weeks. I think Darren's lined up to play Vernon, and Ayato agreed to take Jet's part. i'll be repising my role as Steve.... and the monsters and the mechs..."

There was a slight sign of resignation in his voice. "there's a scene where I'm to create over a dozen creatures. I don't think i can manage it."

"Still I love being the Tesseract, especially Archer mode. It was one of the more fun parts of the show."

He sits back to relax, knowing deep down he wanted to do this movie.

"Of course you've got a part in it too."

She smiled at him a moment, then slide over to straddle his lap, wrapping her arms around him, and kissing him deeply before she responds to his words and speaks up herself.

"I'd love to take on any roll you have for me, beloved, but I think, I could ease the difficulty of taking on one of the creatures a bit.. I've figured out how to acquire the powers of someone else I'm touching.. though I'm not good at it yet." She paused.

"On another note, we really should visit my family, and give them some of the rather important news regarding us.."

He smiled as she slid into what definitely seemed to be her favorite seating arrangement and returned the kiss with equal passion.

"Your dad is gonna kill me, just so you know. Though I bet your sisters knew about it from the beginning."

He smiles, "Still we should tell them the good news, and my family too, though my family can wait a little while." His arms wrapped around her and pulled her to him.

"As far as the movie goes, it wouldn't be good for you to be one of of the monsters or bots. part of the realism of all of this is that the clones actually do die. They also hit full force. While you're very durable and all I'd rather not jeopordize our child in a fight between you and I."

His hands start massaging her shoulders again and he smiles.

"Your right, I don't want to do anything that hurt the child, though right now, he's perfectly fine, and growing." She paused a moment to put her hand over her stomach, protectively. Of course, she was not going to do something like that in public, someone might come to the right conclusion, which wasn't something she wanted them to do, at least, not yet.

"Of course, in the future, any children we chose to have, darling, will be planned, rather then coming as a suprise." She winked at him, before continuing. "Also, I'll bet my sisters had a good reason for not warning me, but I'm still going to give them hell for it."

She leaned forward and kissed him, a long sensual kiss, spoke up again. "I'm willing to play any roll you like in your movie though, love, and I can do just about anything." She caused her features to alter and shift changing her hair color from blond, to black, to red. "Or anyone."

He laid a hand to her stomach, smiling as their lips met. "As I said before, planned or not, I am happy about the situation. I gain a beautiful wife, and a healthy son to begin a family with. What man could be anything but happy in these circumstances?"

Her display makes him smile. "That's actually helpful. The two actresses who played Elza and Dr. Ilyana Drake are not available one due to an accident, another due to other commitments. They look quite different, in fact you might get to do what I did at times, playing any member of the cast. We had a very bad bug rip through everyone, and pretty much to keep on schedule I shot one episode by myself."

He leans over and kisses down her neck, his hands moving across her stomach and down her sides and legs. "We're gonna have to make time to decorate his room... and deicde which one he gets."

"I'll let you decide which room, love, but there is no rush, the child will not be born for months yet.. and sense I control the details my appearance, will not show until the last month or so." She shivered in pleasure as he kissed his way down her neck, and felt his hands slide over her skin.

"Of course, the child will be a Nova, and I have no way of knowing exactly how he'll develop." She paused a moment, considering. "Though, my sisters might."

"As to the acting, I can play any part you like, my love, if we work at it, and keep up the rest of my obligations, I'm certain."

Connor smiles. "Shouldn't be much of a problem there. Even if you can't handle it, especially that last month, Then I will." His hands moved down her legs andover her rump and inner thigh. his lips kissed down her neck and shoulder to the waterline and worked their way back up.

He chuckled. "Part of me is still a little in disbelief, that I could find someone like you so easily."

"I think, Conner, my love, we were simply lucky.. though I couldn't say for certain, luck is a funny thing... but enough talk, for the moment." She moved, shifted her position, so that she could slide onto him, and encouraged him to move away from the side of the hottub, so that she could put her legs around him, and she put her arms around his neck, and kissed him again. "Make love to me, darling."

"With pleasure." He didn't need any fourther incentive than that, positioning himself for it and grasping her hips as she seemed to hover above him, then guiding her onto him ina single motion smiling at the warmth of her body with his, his hands quickly vacating her himps, allowing her to find her own rhythm, instead, one pulled her to him while the other pulled her head to his as he kissed her in a way he hadn't in at least twenty minutes.

She gave herself over to the sweet pleasure of thier lovemaking, no longer speaking with words, but with something much more primal, deep, and sensual. Together they were entertwined, each of them possessing great reserves of stamina and skill, both of them devoted to the other's pleasure. How long it went on, it was hard to say, several hours at least, perhaps they could have gone on for days, but there were other considerations.

After turning off the hot-tub Connor followed his fiancee to the shower, The way she cleaned herself sensual and teasing. Even before she knelt befor him, her lips already kissing his hardened shaft he knew what he wanted and it wasn't long before he had her pressed against the hardened ceramics of the shower, pounding her with a primal need, giving in to the lust and love she stoked within him. Spent after another hour, the water having gone cold as it rained on them, they finally managed to clean each other off, and for good measure wore towels from the bath to their room, where they each dressed for what came next, Telling her family.

He wore a nice grey shirt with black slacks, and leather boots, not quite formal, but decidedly nice than his casual jeans and t-shirt attire.

"Well I'm ready." He smiled as he stood in her doorway, waiting to see what she'd choose to wear.

If she had been dressing up just for him, she'd have chosen something more sensual, and revealing, but she couldn't dress that way for her family, it wouldn't be right. Instead, she chose a lovely white dress, and a necklace, then when he came in to see what she had chosen, she spun around in a circle. "Like it?"

She laughed at his statement. "Did you want to go talk to my family then, with me wearing my birthday suit?" Her tone was mischivious and amused. "That almost it could be shockingly fun, just to see the look on thier faces, but, I don't think either of us would appreacate what would follow that. I'm certain I would care to hear what my parents would say to that"

"But yes, let's go." And with that, she reached out, took his hand, and squeezed it, before vanishing, to reappear near her parent's home in Alaska.

Even as he reached out to ring the doorbell, and it began to ring, Aurora' sisters opened the door right at the same moment he rang it. "Hello, nice to see you again.. " There was a hint of a mischevious smile on both of thier faces as they looked up at the two of them.

"I knew it." Aurora spoke up, reaching out to grab both of her sisters shoulder's "Both of you knew already.. and didn't think to warn me."

At that moment, her mother came around the corner, and frowned slightly. "Warn you about what?"

"Let's get everyone first, that way at least we can tell everyone together, sense my sisters it seems, didn't decide to spoil the suprise." She then waited until everyone had gathered in the living room and was sitting, down, before sitting down next to Conner there. At which point, where Conner might have been about to break it gently, she simply blurted out the matter. "I'm pregnant."

Even as she said that her father jumped, suprised, but his fast mental processes began to put things together. With her brother and mother, anyone without Mega-Perception wouldn't have been able to notice any hint of surpise on thier faces, but just about everyone here did possess it, and were able to tell they were surpised. The twins of course, showed no suprise at all, in fact, there was an air of satisfaction about both of them.

It was this last that caused the other three members of the family to turn to them. "You knew, and expected this?" Her father said, and both of them nodded.

He turned back to look at Conner and Aurora, then smiled slightly. "I take it, from your manner, that I don't need to get out a shootgun and say 'Marry my Daughter, or else'?" His tone was, difficult to place, somewhere between annoyed and amused.

Her mother turned her gaze to Aurora a moment, then she leaned foward. "You didn't think it over, did you, sweetheart?" Aurora nodded.

"Well, I knew we'd be grandparents someday, I didn't think it would be soon."

Connor actually smiles. "No you don't." His eyes dart to the engagement ring beneath his hands on her finger, and he moves his hands so they can see.

"This wasn't what I expected at all, but I am quite happy with things. Though I admit, I have limited experience raising children, and I can only imagine nova children are even more of a handful. I was hoping I could call on your expertise in that department when the time comes, considering the two of you have raised four fine children."

Her mother laughed, then looked at the other three children, then at her husband a moment, and reached out to him, and he took her hands in his, holding them together a moment, before turning his attention to both of them.

"Raising a nova child is both like, and unlike raising a human child, it will be quite suprising, and I'm not sure how much help we can be." Her father paused. "Of course, we're willing to help as much as possible, it's simply, evey one of our children, have been different, and we had different learning experances and challanges regarding them."

As he stopped speaking, her mother spoke up. "But if your willing to work together, I'm sure you can overcome them. With Aurora, there were some challenges, we had trouble convincing her to wear clothing, even to the point she was four or five, she just didn't see the need. And she never slept, so she was always awake, always wanting to do things.. we had to keep an eye on her all the time."

Aurora blushed a time or as her mother discribed how she was in the first few years.

Connor laughed. "Oh, I hadn't particularly noticed that trait." His voice was light and mischievous.

"Sounds a little like my twin sisters when they were young. They've always shared everything, and only Mom, Dad and I can tell them apart. They loved to cause trouble for us, and I often got blamed for it."

"My siblings are spaced pretty far apart, with a brother eight years older than me, a sister four years older, me, then my twin sisters, eight years later. Each "generation" helped raise the subsequent one."

He smiles. "Considering we're all going to be family, I'd like all of you to meet my family one day, I know my Family would enjoy your company every bit as much as I do."

Her father reached up and carressed his chin a moment. "Actually, that may be possible, but it would require them coming here, or to the place we're moving to in the few years. You see, you may not be aware of it, yet, but there are those who hunt nova families, and fertile novas. It seems there are serveral groups of them out there."

He paused. "What's worse, is that from my studies, I believe that large ammount of taint make it more likely for a nova to birth monsters. In your case, that's not a problem, but it's a situation to be aware off, it's likly to make things more difficult in the future, rather then less. In fact, I believe that Homo Sapiens Novus is actually a divergent speices, with multiple possiblities, one that is going to go in a number of directions."

Connor nods. "Auora's celebrity, not to mention my own will make this very hard to hide, once it becomes obvious, but it will also serve as a manner of protection once the truth is known."

"I'm not going to be shouting it out, but the media will figure it out." He listens to his mini-lecture on novas and nods. I do alot to mind my taint, taking my time."

He nods. "Most people think my eyes are the result of QBS, but in truth it's just a rare genetic quality that runs in my family. I've been very fortunate."

"Dad mentioned wanting to see snow again, it shouldn't be too hard to get him and the others up here."

"I'm not sure if that's the case, celebrity actually makes one more vulerable in some ways then anonymity, at the very least, it makes you easy to find." He pause a moment, considering.

"Perhaps, though, you could make use of some aspect of that, why not consider building a place hidden somewhere, either isolated on earth, like hidden deep underground, or doing what I have been working on, some place off planet." He paused. "If nothing else, it will allow you a place no one who isn't a nova can follow you, a private location where you can raise your child in safety. You don't have to hide the fact you have a child, simply hide where your raising the child from the public."

"Well I do maintain half a dozen homes of varying sizes across the globe. Combine Aurora's abilities with my own, and figuring exactly which one we're at can be difficult."

"As to some place off-planet, I'd rather wait till we know whether the child can survive before I make that decision. Aurora and I can, but that doesn't nescessarily mean our child will be able to do so."

"I do realize celebrity is a double-edged sword, but that's the hand that's been dealt, and I plan on finding a way to work it all out."

Her father considered that for a long moment, listening to his reply, and the rest of her family had remained silent. "Fair enough, though I feel it important to point our with a bit of work, an off planet location can be made to support life. Still, if your child can teleport, but can't survive the void of space, best not to provide him or her.." At this point, Aurora interupted.

"It's him, dad."

"Him then, best not provide him with a situation that makes life more hazardous then less."

He looked at Aurora then back at Conner, and then at her hand, which had firmly linked with Conners, and his tone shifted. "Well, she's chosen to support you, and you've clearly considered the matter, so I leave it in your hands, my eldest has the right to make her own choices these days."

Connor nods once and extends his hand to his soon to be father-in-law. I won't let you or her down, you can count on that."

He looks around to the others gathered there and smiles. His gaze falls on the twins and he chuckles. "You know, there was a time where I was mad at the two of you, once Aurora told me you had the abiities you do. You could have warned her."

His voice was a little stern, but quickly relaxed. "In retrospect I kinda have to thank you, because it drastically altered my life and I hope Aurora agress, for the better."

"In the future though, if I'm going to do something stupid, or dangerous to the family, let me or Aurora know. She and I can handle most things, but our son, your nephew may not be able to." He put empahsis on the fact that they would be aunts now, and have a little more responsibility, hoping to show his trust, and the fact he really wasn't angry.

The twins spoke up in reply, in almost prefect chorus, thier voices meshing together in prefect melodious whole. "Yes, we could have, we also could have told our family what you were coming here to tell us. But we didn't, after all, simply because we know what's likely to come, doesn't mean we should meddle in it." The two of them exchanged glances.

"Besides, we thought it would be fun to be aunts..." they paused a moment. "Learn to attune things, well enough that you can attune a young child, and don't worry about the child while he's still forming."

They looked at Aurora a moment. "However, a warning, he's almost certain to be a shapechanger, especially if sis changes her shape and material form a lot, while he's still in the womb... if you want him to go another direction, you should avoid altering your form, but it won't hurt him if you do."

Connor nods. "I've a young friend who's teaching me that trick, albeit slowly. As to what powers our son will have, that's not really for us to decide is it?"

"He could end up with all our powers and be even stronger than us one day, or not, it won't change the way we care for him at all."

"You do have a point. I'll just have to trust your judgement."

He looked to Aurora. "You've been awfully quiet love, still getting over your mother sharing your adorable childhood stories?"

She had been thinking actually, and listening, so when he turned his attention to her, she smiled, and kissed his cheek softly. "Not really, though I suppose I should expect that your going to take a look at my baby pictures eventually. For that matter, dad has some three dimensional picture displays from my childhood."

She turned her gaze to her sisters a moment. "I think they are saying that what we do in the next few months could affect what the child would be, yes?"

Both of her sisters nodded. "The furture isn't set, it's like thousands of pathways, and every person can shift the pathway this way or that... some are simply more likely then others. However, folks who can see the future, can shift the pathways much more drasticily.. as we get older, we are starting to think one should only interfier with ever greater care and caution."

Connor chuckles. "It's a good thing that I'm already used to the "talking as one" thing, or I might be a little weirded out."

He smiles. "I think what we talked about earlier will come into play though. I'll handle the bigger things in the movie, and let you focus on the human-sized roles."

He looked to them. "Aurora's going to be in the next movie I do, along with a good number of my other nova friends."

He smiles. I won't ask to see them, because there's no way I'm letting you see mine... Even if I have to sneak into the house and hide them." It's easy to see that Connor's happy. He's not obilivious to the weight of what's been said and revealed, just that he realizes this won't be any easy thing.

Ubderneathe everything thuogh, his resolve and faith in himself and Aurora shine through, that they will do what's best for their family.

Up until now her brother hadn't spoken, he'd been watching everything, but now he did speak up. "Whatever my nephew turns out to be, I'll help, let me know... in the meantime, I've just have an moment of inspiration, Conner, would you and Aurora be the models for my next artistic endeavor?" His manner was curious and excited.

Excited and exuberant, her brother reached out and gasped both of thier hands, and lead them down into his gallery, of dozens of works of art, of stone, crystal and just about anything, some of them apparently formed from the stone and rock under their feet, some apparently created or altered from it.

"You.. here." He set Conner up on a natural spot to sit on a rock, then he moved his sister. "and you here." He had her sitting down on Conner's lap, then he picked up a round stone, and set it between them, putting both Conner and Aurora's hands on it. "Now, hold for a moment."

He turned and rock and stone appeared to move and mold to his will, and after a few minutes a new shape appeared in an empty spot, a man and woman, who resembled Aurora and Conner, but not prefectly, who held a child between them, and were surrounded by a garden of rose crystal flowers, and a globe of the earth beside them.

Connor marveled at the sculpture, and smiled. "I said it before, you do amazing work."

He looked to Aurora and smiled. "This goes far beyond talent."

He nods. "You should really display some of your work, even if you did it under a assumed name. Work like this deserves to recieve international accalaim."
