Her father had refused to let her come down to Lincliff alone, which was a thought that Caitrín found very offensive and quite frankly sexist. Conan was tall and pretty, but he was a walking twig, and while Tiernan was muscled, she didn't know who really wore the pants between them. Still, Conan was busy with Aoibh and Saoirse was nowhere to be found, so she'd flagged her brother down and dragged him here. "This place makes the best mango smoothies! They're addictive and I can't get enough of them. Sweet, but not sugary, with a hint of tartness from the pineapple juice they use. You're not gonna regret coming down with me, I promise!" Caitrín rambles excitedly, almost bouncing on her heels as she waits for the line to go down.

Tiernan truthfully didn't mind coming with his sister to get a drink, after all with Conan out with Aoibh and Saoirse out as well, it left him bored alone. What he didn't like however was the insinuation that Caitrín needed someone to protect her, a notion that Tiernan agreed with his sister, was rather sexist in nature. But he tried to keep that thought out of his head as the pair were waiting in line. "I'm looking forward to trying one, here's hoping you aren't over exaggerating just how good these smoothies are." He said casually, not like he would do anything if he found the drink to be a bit of a let down. "Do they have anything good to eat here? I'm a bit hungry as well."

"Oh yeah, for sure. Pastries, baked goods, I think the guy who runs this place always keeps the options varied. Why do you think this place is my favorite? Aside from, you know, how wonderfully gay it is. The girls that come here during the school year are stunning! Although some are sadly only here for their Witchagram aesthetic, but I've learned how to weed those out," Caitrín boasts, grinning. She disregards having gone completely off-topic. It happens frequently and should come as a surprise to exactly nobody, least of all her older brother. She glances around to see if she sees any of the aforementioned girls, but realizes quickly the shoppe is actually fairly empty bar those in line. She pouts but it quickly disappears - not like she'd be able to hit on anyone with Tiernan around.

Tiernan couldn't help but laugh at his sister going on about the girls that frequented the cafe. "Leave it to you to turn an innocent little trip to a cafe into scouting out your future consort, all while weeding out the Witchagram girls. I don't think I've ever been more impressed by your social skills." Sure, he was teasing Caitrín just a touch. But it was all in good fun and he knew his sister would just tease him back if she cared that much so he wasn't worried. "But I'm happy to hear they have food, I swear my stomach's been growling since we left for this place."

Caitrín laughs. The things she can do would surprise anyone, if they knew the full extent. At the end of the day, though, she prides herself on being a good networker. "What can I say? Girls, guys and nonbi's all love me, and you know I always aim to please," she replies cheekily, winking playfully at her older brother. "We can get some actual food later! I've been craving this smoothie for weeks now, so you'll have to wait, but I'm down for food if you are."

Hana walks in the cafe like she owns the place, with Raina at her side. The royal ball is done now, so they have to make it to their scheduled Portkey later in the day, but she's so tired from the night before that she needs coffee or else she'll pass out. "This place looks okay, I guess." Hana comments haughtily, "Ate, do you want me to order you a coffee?"

She made it through the entire ball without feeling the need to inflict some kind of bodily harm upon another person, so that's a win. The entire thing was still exhausting and Raina couldn't wait till they get home. But then Hana expressed the need for coffee and who was Raina to keep her from getting her caffeine boost? The place is loud in terms of colours and the name... But at least it's not too crowded. "That would be nice, thank you." She trusts that Hana knows her preference already (caramel macchiato) so Raina wordlessly takes on the task of finding them a table.

Hana goes to the counter and orders a caramel macchiato and a butterscotch latte, before sitting down with Raina while waiting for their names to be called. "Did you enjoy the ball last night?" she asks, while waiting, getting out her phone to shoot a message to their parents that they're getting ready for the trip home.

"Barely," she mutters, pulling up her hair in a loose ponytail while silently thanking the stars above that she didn't allow them to put any hairpins in it. "Too many people. Nobody tried to get me to talk, so good for them." It's an expected answer from Raina, who'd rather frolic in the deepest, darkest parts of the woods instead of getting roped into any fancy balls. "What about you?"

"Nobody tried to get me to talk either." she says, although Hana's tone is infinitely times more disappointed than her sister's. Of course it would be – Hana lives for these things, it's what she's good at. "So, disappointing as well. I ended up leaving for a bit and meeting up with some friends, actually."

She finds that a little weird, people not making conversation with Hana. Usually, her younger sister would have several people surrounding her in social gatherings back at home. She hums, taking a sip of her sufficiently cooled caramel macchiato. Raina's a little familiar with Hana's peers, but not to the extent where she'd know names and faces at the drop of a hat. "Oh? Which ones?"

"Vilja and Jude. I know they've never come up in my kuwento, but I've only become their friend rather recently." she tells her ate. She feels like she needs to expound because both of them know how rare it is either of them find the company of others bearable. "I worked with them both in class and they were nice naman."

She lets out another hum, this time of approval. If Hana says they're nice, then that's good enough. A little voice in the back of her head—probably her snake Eadlyn or her old tutor—tells her she should stop being so critical of everyone, but she wouldn't be a good ate if she was too lax. "As they should be. Glad to know this place doesn't have many hampaslupa crawling around."

Hana laughs quietly, bringing her hand to her mouth to cover the action, just like a proper princess would. It's always amusing whenever Raina plays the ate role, and she's very appreciative of it. "Hogwarts isn't as bad as I thought it would be." she admits, finally. "When we transferred, I was so sure I was going to beg mama and papa to let me continue at Solis, kaso medy nahihinayang na ako." She frowns, stirring her coffee before taking a sip. "Do you regret transferring?" Her voice is softer. She sounds much more like a confused bunso asking her ate for advice now more than ever.

She listens quietly, sipping at her drink as she does so. A quirk of the lips is hidden by the cup, but it was there. Raina was... happy that Hana was adjusting well. The question that follows got her thinking and she sets her cup down, gentle enough that it doesn't make a noise, just as she was taught to. "Can't say I do. Regret it, I mean. Being here means less people breathing down my neck for being a dayuhan, so ayun."

Hana often forgets her sister isn't actually her full sister. It's so odd every time she remembers, when Raina is probably the most important person in the world to her. "That's good." she says, not very good at expressing affection or support. Hana has her mother to blame for that. "The people at Solis who gave you a difficult time are just irrelevant idiots anyway. It's good to be away from them."

She shrugs with disinterest about her former peers. "Not exactly difficult, just really annoying. It's hard to get things done around there when they're seemingly so interested in my life. It's like a group of stereotypical alings down the street making chika about their neighbours or about the latest telenovela." Raina takes another sip of her drink and notes that this place actually brews a really good one. The flavour is definitely enough to overpower her slight... aversion to the loud colours of the establishment.

She nods in agreement – Raina hit the nail right on the head. "Honestly, I have a couple of yearmates now that are a bit like that. I remember when we first showed up, there were so many annoying students bending over backwards to help me with things and asking what if I'm actually a princess." She rolls her eyes. "Now it's the end of the school year and I feel they don't like me as much." She inspects her nails, not really caring that upon the reveal of her true colors, most people became averse to the idea of being her friend.

She scoffs in distaste at Hana's description of her yearmates. "Should've thrown them to the lake," She mutters, sipping her macchiato. "Walang kwentang mga ipis." Raina should really get the name of those yearmates, leave them a little gift and remind them of their place. "I haven't talked with my yearmates outside of class. They stared, quite annoyingly, but I guess the novelty wore off by the end of the week."

Raina raises an eyebrow. Her face still looks impassive but there's a small twitch of interest at the corner of her mouth. "Is it something that would make people scream in fear?" She knows Hana, and she knows that whatever Hana's planning, it involves ipis, chaos, and a potential scolding from their mother.

"It has come to my attention that our majority of our schoolmates who grew up here have never been acquainted with a flying cockroach." she says, innocently. Her eyes look downright evil though, like a mastermind with a villainous plot. "Do you know the spell avis?"

"Poor, poor babies. Never have they seen true demons." She laments, though the effect is watered down by the fact that her face hasn't changed expressions at all.

Raina leans forward in interest. One flying ipis was annoying enough, but a whole bunch of them?

"Imagine them coming in all shapes and sizes, all different stages of life."

She's also almost halfway done with her own drink as she sits, looking contemplative at Raina's words. "The difference between me and Ate Sinaya is that she's dayang and I'm never going to be queen of anything." she says, matter-of-factly.

She knows for a fact that Hazelle really is harder on Hana than she is on Raina, and she sees how Hazelle's efforts on raising Hana to be just like her made them more prone to arguments more often than not. But to her, Hana's already doing more than enough, her baby sister shouldn't feel the need to drive herself to the ground. "You've already done more than enough. Maybe you won't get to sit on a fancy throne, but you have the choice to be who you want to be, regardless of the demands and cookie cutters of everyone else."

Normally they're in Hana or Raina's room though, and Hana's crying after a particularly bad fight with their mom, but her sister's words still hit Hana as hard as they always do.

"If I figure out who I want to be sooner, then I'll have more time convincing mama it's worth doing." she says dryly. Still, the words have a certain vulnerability to them. "Dapat talaga you accepted her offer to be part of the line of succession. Siguro she'd like training you a whole lot better than me." The last part sounds a tad bitter, but Hana and Raina are so close that she's sure her sister knows that she harbors no ill feelings towards her. Their mother however...

With very little going on that day - there were few enough people at the gym where he could take the day off - Felix had come to Espresso Yourself to have a coffee and some time to himself. Sitting in the corner of the cafe, he flipped through a magazine and allowed his thoughts to wander to nowhere in particular. He hadn't been expecting to see anyone that day and was basking in some peace and quiet - something he usually forwent for his job.

Felix, for a moment, wondered who had the audacity to come over to him and ruin his silence. When he saw it was Adonis, his pretty much boyfriend at this point, he loosened up slightly and let himself smile. "I was, but I took the day off because I don't want to deal with unruly customers. Not today," He said with a little laugh, taking a sip of his drink, "But now I'm presuming I get to deal with you? Ruining my day off?" He smiled after his words, indicating that he was joking and that the company of the younger would be welcomed.

Lucille's decision to invite Adele for a cup of coffee at Espresso Yourself was mostly a logistical one. If it went as well as she hoped, then she'd feel much more comfortable about introducing her to the twins. Plus, well, it had been nice seeing her, even if Lucille was still hurting. Regardless, right as the clock struck the time they'd agreed on, she exited the interior with both her and her mother's beverages. She approaches a soft lilac table and sits, knowing it's a matter of moments before the woman materializes.

The invitation for a cup of coffee with her daughter shouldn't be such a rare event, nor should it evoke such extreme happiness in Adele - it should be an everyday occurrence - and yet here she is, barely concealing her nerves, approaching the rainbow cafe in an outfit that makes her look as normal as anyone.

Her nose scrunches up in displeasure when her mother sneaks that one in, but it fades quickly enough in favor of a small smile. "I don't know what your tastes are like these days, but I imagine they didn't stray too far from what they once were." Ah, double entendres. "You look... different," she adds with a playful smirk, when she notices her choice in attire. "Very chique but very classy, well done. Trying to look younger, I see."

"You ought to do well to consider disguising yourself a little better, especially in such public places." Her eyebrows raise in silent reminder of the several Parade members they'd lost over the years simply from being recognised in the wrong place at the wrong time. "A new name doesn't make a new person. I know that better than anyone."

Lucille waves a hand dismissively. She'd thought of that already, and it had been taken care of. Not interested in delving into what she did, or the cumbersome memories of Renée Leroux's adventures, she settles on a new point of conversation rather quickly. "Claire got into a fight at the Academy," she informs her mother, imagining she'd be grateful for the update. "She went off claiming she was going to - and I'm quoting the disciplinary slip - marry into royalty and order their deaths if they didn't listen to her."

That makes her laugh; it's so undeniably Tessa, hell, even Sabrina. "That reminds me of when you started a fight in Lil Bundles, back when me and Xavier were inquiring about adopting you." She tucks a loose strand of hair behind her ear and allows her eyes to flick lazily over Tessa's face, looking for any fresh cuts or bruises or marks that shouldn't be there. "You nearly broke this poor girl's nose, and then said she deserved it because she gave you a blue crayon instead of green."

She was meticulous about keeping both her lives separated. Of all the things she did to ensure this line never blurred, keeping her face clean of telling injuries were among the most important. It was the rest of her body worth worrying over. "So she did deserve it," Lucille replies, cracking a genuine smile at the sound of her mother's laugh. "More than when I broke Soren's, at least. But I didn't know who he was and he was grabbing me around - I really don't know what he was thinking then."

The memory is fond and so is her laugh, clearly remembering the way Soren approached her with a bleeding nose and an attitude. "We had never had children before in the Citadel, you can't blame him for being surprised," she says. "Just to think, you've got all these memories to make ahead of you with your own."

The comment makes her smile again, and she nods. "I'm just relieved they take a little more after me," she confesses, "They aren't as laidback as Julian is. For a parader, he has a remarkable lack of passion, and considering the danger they'll always be in, I'm not sure how comfortable that'd make me."

The mention of Julian, as well as her daughter's comments, makes her stiffen. She visibly shifts over into maternal mode, becomes a hawk. "Ah, yes. Julian." Even the way she says his names makes it drip with - not contempt, per se, but distrust. "How is he doing these days?"

The change in her demeanor makes Lucille huff out a short laugh, amused by the way her mother takes to the mention of her children's father. "Yes, mother, Julian. He's doing alright. I think he's settled down a little lately. He's been requesting more time on missions, around his schedule with the children. It's about time, his dalliances with strangers were starting to irritate me."

Her eyebrows fly out in a mixture of amusement and still slight irritation - she's allowed to dislike her son-in-law, it's part of being a mother. "About time he put his foot down. Juggling parenting and the Parade is a difficult task, and one neither me or Sabrina ever truly mastered. She hasn't seen Morgan in years, not even a passing visit. Don't let that become a reality for Julian, too."

The news surprise Lucille, who had been under the impression Morgan had become, in simple terms, her bitch. He'd always given her the feeling he'd be gunning for her throne. She finds comfort in the fact that that isn't true or right, twisted as it might be. "It is, but I trust Julian to do what's best for our children," Lucille shakes her head, knowing very well Julian would sooner carve his own organs out than lose his children. Another difference between her and her children's childhoods. "If Morgan hasn't been with Sabrina, what has become of him? I don't think his pride would let him duke it out at Lil Bundles."

The logical part of her mind tells her that Tessa doesn't give two shits about Morgan's well-being, and is merely concerned with whether or not he is coming to usurp her throne; still, the thought of the family coming back together is comforting, as fanciful as it may be. "From what I know, he is just about to graduate Hogwarts. I've no clue where he's been staying in the holidays, most likely with a friend. I agree, I can't quite see him sleeping in Lil' Bundles, with the Thomas the Tank Engine bedsheets."

"Oh, I can. It's fitting. Child bedsheets for the brattiest of children. Even Claire behaves better than he did last I saw him," Lucille rolls her eyes, sounding as embittered as she feels. While she's concerned about her throne, a big part of her dislike towards him is what he once represented - the family she'd never belong to. "But I digress. I wonder if that's why she suggested I reach out and train him."

That sets alarm bells ringing. Oh lord, she can practically see how this is going to unravel like a bad joke. Still, she keeps her suspicious concealed and merely quirks an eyebrow at this new information. "You, training Morgan? Wow. I haven't seen Sabrina have such a lapse of judgement since she shacked up with Carlisle."

"I know." Adele might be good at concealing her suspicions, but Lucille doesn't care that much. Not when it's just her mother. "I don't know what she's aiming to achieve, but I'm not happy about it. I don't trust Morgan. We don't know where he's been or what he's been up to."

She considers this, shrugs, and makes a mental note to grill Sabrina earlier and ask what the hell she's up to. "It could be worth considering," she eventually says in a devil's-advocate kind of voice. "You and him leading the Parade together? With your training? You'd be powerful. The heirs of Sabrina and me carrying on the legacy... it's almost romantic," she muses.

"Keep it in your pants, mother," Lucille rolls her eyes at the comment and tone with which it's delivered. Spiteful and unwilling to relinquish any control to him, she glares at her mother for making those remarks. She wants to say more, but they've blurred the lines between family and business enough for today. "We'll discuss that later," she mutters, shaking her head in visible disappointment. She had hoped her mother would, for once, understand and agree with her rather than Sabrina's street rat. Some things will never change; Adèle would always defend the rest of her family, and Lucille would always hold it against her. Unsure of where to take the conversation next, she takes a large gulp of her coffee, ignoring how the stinging sensation of it burning down her throat and stomach.

Almost immediately she regrets what she's said, as she's clearly struck a nerve. And then the regret vanishes as quick as it had arrived; this isn't a mother-daughter issue, it's a Parade issue, and maybe it's her maturity that allows her to see it from such a clinical view. Her eyes narrow at Tessa's reaction - it's clear the issue of the family is still raw, and that Tessa still views herself as aside from it rather than the beating heart that keeps them all together. "Don't be like that," she says, cooly, making it clear she isn't picking favourites. "The Parade and the family overlap in more ways than any of us are comfortable with. I know you think you've managed to separate your brain and your heart, but you haven't. No one ever truly does." She takes a sip of her own coffee, leaving a red lipstick mark on the cup. "And don't think I'd ever take his side over yours."

Contrary to Adèle's belief, it isn't a Parade issue. It's Lucille's inability to view herself as a fully integrated member of their small family. She wasn't biologically theirs; if they so desired, she could quickly become a distant memory, a brief speck of regret marring their history within the Parade. This is a problem that has always plagued her, even when she thought she'd resolved her internal conflict. It wasn't something dismissible like Adèle was portraying it to be, nor did it have to do much with separating her brain and her heart. She knew they weren't separated - it's what had led to her even ascending to the Parader throne. It's what had led to her adoption. It's what had led to her current predicament. Her mother's inability to differentiate the source of most of Lucille's anguish is disappointing, but she can't say she's surprised. No amount of effort she makes will wash away the years she wasted being a horrible mother. "As I said," she states, her voice rough around the edges, "We'll discuss that later."

It's clear she's either grossly misread the situation - likely, considering she knows barely half of the situation at hand - or she's touched a raw nerve that's triggered Tessa. Both of those possibilities upset her, so she shifts her chair forward and leans in slightly, adopts a softer voice. "Or you could talk now," she says. "I can't help you unless I know the truth."

"Not here," Lucille shakes her head immediately, rejecting her mother's advancements. It'd help, no doubt, but the venue is too public for her comfort. She takes another gulp of her coffee, but is disgruntled upon realizing not much had been left. She sighs and sets the cup aside. This meeting wasn't going as well as she'd hoped.

Cautiously, she reaches across the table and places her hand on Tessa's; soft and gentle, not encroaching. Just to let her know that she's there, and that she's not going anywhere. Not this time. "Well, the way I see it, we've got two options," she says. "We can either go back to the Citadel and have a long, emotional talk about our feelings and get everything out on the table. Or..." She looks around the snow-capped landscape, the sky clear and blue and the air lacking any brutal chill. "We can go and do some shopping and just - have a nice time. Even if it is just a few hours.

Lucille doesn't have the energy to confront all her issues with her right now. They'll have to shelve that conversation for another day. Thus, she stands, gesturing behind her. "There's a new boutique a few streets down I was going to check out. I need a new suit." Figuring she'd see the invitation as Luce means it, she sidesteps out of the chair and grabs her cup along the way to toss out.

He's just going to say it right now: idols aren't shit. As someone who is very familiar with them, Milan thinks that he's qualified to say that. After all, it's not every day that he finally submits the last tracks of a mini-album just to be told to revise. Multiply that experience with that seems to be thousands of times. If he could rant about this, he'd tell Stan Snitcher not to stand Legend. But here he is, another email and another pile of bullshit to work with. He sips on his vanilla iced latte, wondering how to politely tell someone to fuck off.
