Tolstokozhev House
Owned by: Yaroslav



The Flat


Yaroslav Home

Yaroslav will definitely argue there were some upsides in the sudden passing of his old necromancer mentor. Inheriting his thriving businesses is no doubt a big part of this argument, but his manor is a much bigger part of his argument. Many protective enchantments have been placed on the perimeter, most importantly the Unplottable charm to render it safe from the less loyal, but for all intents and purposes, this is a safe, relaxing place; it's not like much happens in the countryside, anyways.

In spite of the tragedy Sarai would have to work through emotionally, Yaroslav had to admit; he was relieved by the death of Abraham Cagan. He was a vile man, and it had taken every bit of self-control as requested by Sarai to not kill him from the moment he realized there was more to the family story. Even now, a part of him is secretly celebrating the loss, though he's hidden it fairly well. "And this... would be your room!" Yaska says, as they reach the end of the hallway. Sarai's room is to the left, facing the gardens behind the house. Upon opening the door, it looks very simple, but Yaska had obviously tried to decorate it in a way that would feel homely to her in the space of time between him finding out and Tristan dropping Sarai off at his shop. There's plants everywhere, and on top of the bed was an army of bags filled with things he'd also bought today just for her. Scented shampoos and conditioners, fluffy socks, a weighted blanket, and probably more candy than any mature adult would recommend. (He was terrified of getting something she didn't like, and getting everything seemed like the perfect solution, so here they are.) All in all, it's an impressive haul that he's quite proud of, as evidenced by his happy grin when he whirls around to look at the teen. "Welcome! You can move things around as you like, decorate how you want, but I thought you would like this set-up."

As much as she likes Elayne, and as cool as the citadel is Sarai just feels awful infringing on her friend's space like that, so she'd texted Yaska asking if it'd be okay if she stay at the shop just until she can figure something more long-term out. Of course there's always backpacker's, but that too feels like infringing on other people's space. Someone else could really need that room, you know? It comes as a surprise to exactly one person ever (her) that Yaska immediately told her she should just move in with him - that in fact she already had a room waiting for her. So here she is, looking absolutely shell-shocked at the sight of- well, everything. "I- you didn't have to do all this," she tells him. How much did he spend on all this?

Imagine thinking Yaroslav Tolstokozhev would let his pseudo-child live with anyone that wasn't him or someone he fully trusted. The le Feys are hot, don't get him wrong, but they reek of arrogance, self-absorption, entitlement and betrayal, and he'll be damned if he let Sarai stay with any of them for long. (And if he knew where Sarai really was, he would simply die. The Parade is a magnet for death and misery, and his fake daughter deserves better than that.) The shock on her face hurts Yaroslav a little, but he masks it behind a proud smirk. When will she understand he genuinely just wants her to be happy and safe? That he'd go to the ends of the Earth for her? They aren't related by blood, but it hardly matters; she's his only priority right now. And the other one — Jai. He supposes the little murderer is a distant second. "Yeah I did," he retorts, giving her an are you kidding? look. "What was I gonna do, give you an empty room? As if."

All of this is getting very close to too much for Sarai, after such an intense few days emotionally, and she blinks to stop tears from forming. A moment's hesitation later and she's stepping towards him, wrapping her arms around his torso in an awkward hug. "Thank you," she says, sincerity colouring her tone. "I- it means a lot. I'm really sorry for all the bother I've caused the last couple days."

It might be awkward for Sarai, but after the initial shock, Yaska practically melts, beaming happily as he returns her hug firmly. He rubs her back gently. "I told you I had your back," he reminds her softly, "It doesn't matte what happens or how bad you think things have gotten, kid. I'm in your corner."

Sarai's not done, deeming it important that she explains herself further. "I know you wanted me to come back to the shop and I'm really sorry I didn't. I know it must have worried you a lot but I just-" okay, the tears are coming now. "Everyone else is so glad that he's gone and acting like I should be too and I- he was still my dad. And Jai- I haven't spoken to Jai." How is she supposed to explain her grief? He said it was in self-defense, and she's glad he's safe, of course she is. He's her twin. So she shouldn't be so upset, right? But she is - she just can't help it. "I don't even know what I'm going to say to him."

Yaroslav beckons her to enter further into the room. He's under the impression they're about to have a serious conversation, and having it in the doorway to her new bedoom is definitely not the place. He makes a space for himself on the edge of her bed, moving around one of the many bags of chocolate he got her. "Everyone processes differently. I don't blame you for not coming to the shop. I'm not so sure I would have either, if I had been in the same position as you." Then again, he doesn't come from an ordinary family, so he might not have had an option. But that's neither here nor there. "He was your dad," Yaroslav agrees, though the words leave a bitter aftertaste in his mouth. "You have every right for time and distance from Jairus, I agree. You're allowed to grieve someone who had such an important role in your life." He takes pause for a moment. There's more he wants to say, but he knows now isn't the best moment. His sole focus is to comfort Sarai, so that's what he'll do. "You don't have to think about that right now, you know. His room is in the other side of the manor, downstairs." He's lucky he didn't get thrown out to the shed near the lake, barely seen in the distance from the window. Yaska is being very generous.

Sarai sits on the edge of the bed with him numbly, wrapping her arms around her knees and focusing on a single spot on the carpet. "I know I must sound so- I don't know. I know he was an awful person. He was-" she shivers, starting again. "He deserved it. It's not really hard to believe it was in self defense. But I guess I just- I always thought he'd get better, and now he doesn't even have the chance."

His heart feels like it's being squeezes a little too tightly. He frowns and throws an arm around her, pulling her into him like it'd make a difference. "You like seeing the good in people," he interjects gently, "You thought he could grow and change, and there isn't anything inherently wrong with that. He might have, and now we won't know for sure." Yaska pauses momentarily. "Is taking away his opportunity to grow something you feel was... wrong, of Jairus?"

She doesn't object when Yaska pulls her to him, but she does pull away in horror when he asks her that. "Of course not! I believe him, that it was in self defense. But I- I can't help but wish it never had to happen at all and I don't want him to think I'm upset with him because of course I'm not, I'm just-" she almost says I miss my dad, but does she really? "I keep thinking how scared he must have been. He was always scared of us and we- maybe he was right to be."

He raises his hands immediately when he sees the horror on her face and registers her defensive tone. "You're right, I'm sorry," he says quickly. His face falls when Sarai continues, and he shakes his head. "That's - come on, you know that's not true. Yes, he had every right to be scared, but it doesn't excuse the way he behaved against any of you. His own fear and ignorance resulted in his own death, sweetheart. That's not your fault or even Jairus'." It really hurts him to see her thinking any of this, and even more that he doesn't know what to say or do. Moments like these, it really dawns on him how, even though he cares about Sarai like she's his own, he isn't really emotionally equipped to give her the support she needs. He's fucked in all sorts of ways. "Don't let yourself accept the weight of his own ignorance and stubbornness."

"No, no, don't be sorry! I didn't mean to make you feel bad, I just- I don't know. I don't know what I think about anything at all and I hate it." If she continues on like this she's really going to burst into tears, and she doesn't want to do that in front of Yaska. It just seems so ungrateful; he's invited her to stay here at no extra cost and now she's just having a meltdown? This is all so unreasonable of her. "I guess I'm just... trying to figure out everything. I mean, I can't even go home and I feel so bad about leeching off of you now. I'm so sorry for all the bother - you really shouldn't have had to get dragged into all this."
