Yaxley Residence
Owned by: Kaia Yaxley



The Flat
Kaia's Home

After recovering from the finalization of her divorce, Kaia purchased her first home as an independent woman outside the wizarding world. Although her children are welcomed to stay in the house they grew up in, as she's of the belief that house will one day be theirs, she's made accomodations to make sure there's always room for them within her home, and any other relative of theirs who might need a quick place to crash at. Its design is a far-cry from the lavish style she might've once found more appealing, but its what she asked the architects for, and suffice to say, she's happy with what they erected.

Kaia's anger and hurt had most certainly not ebbed away over time like Stephan and Florian had hoped. She is a hot pot of emotions, but has done remarkably well to shove them aside and focus on her siblings, nephew and niece. Getting the baby discharged was no problem, although she'd been wary at first given how prematurely she was born. But as she had responded well to all the emergency potions and spells, Kaia had conceded — only if Florian stayed at her place, allowing her to act more easily if the newborn's health took an unexpected turn for the worse. With the children already returning to Hogwarts, Kaia appreciated the company, no matter how little sleep that meant she got. Florian had it arguably worse, though. He was a nervous wreck, too worried something might happen to his daughter if he slept for too long. So, tired as Kaia is from her shift at St. Mungo's, she is now babysitting while Florian gets some rest. The baby had wound up getting a little fussy, hence why Kaia is outside, sitting on one of the rocking chairs in the porch as she gently rocks her niece back and forth, lulling her into a deep sleep.

Lavinia had, understandably, been a little speechless when she found out about Florian's situation. If someone had told her that Florian Yaxley was able to keep his mouth shut about a pregnant ex-girlfriend then Lavinia might have laughed. But apparently-he had it in him. She hadn't gone to the hospital. She wasn't family-it wasn't her place to go, so she had waited until she'd gotten word that the baby was out of hospital to come visit. First she ended up at his house and he wasn't there. So she sent him a text and he was at Kaia's. So she headed there. Lavinia was more familiar with Eleni than any of the other Yaxley's just because they ended up brushing shoulders here and there over the years. She didn't visit St. Mungo's a lot so it meant Kaia was one of those friendly acquaintances. Walking up the pathway, she had a bouquet of flowers and a fluffy golden teddy bear in her arms. "Oh, Kaia! Sorry...I heard he was here and wanted to you know...check in, so that's the surprise baby, huh?" She asked as she came up onto the perch, but held herself back from rushing forward and gushing over the baby. She'd imagine emotions were running high. "She looks so cute!" A little wrinkly but that wasn't going to be stated.

Kaia wasn't expecting anyone, but if she had, she'd have tried to cook up something for Lavinia, or at least ordered some takeout. She doesn't like being caught unprepared like this, even though it'd technically be Florian's responsibility given Lavinia is his guest. Even though she's a little more displeased with her brother, Lavinia would be none the wiser as Kaia directs a welcoming smile at her. "That's okay. I'm afraid you might have to settle for the baby and I's company, though; he just drifted off upstairs," she alerts. The compliment makes Kaia grin a little wider as she looks back down at the sleeping baby. The resemblance to Florian from his baby pictures is uncanny, although it's plausible she might have some features from her maternal family; those eyes are her father's, but that nose is definitely not the Yaxley nose. Win some, lose some, she supposes. At least she can brag about being the proud aunt of two cute babies now to everyone back at the hospital. "You can come up and sit down, if you like. Would you care for anything to drink?"

At the request to sit down, Lavinia was happy to do it, she didn't like awkwardly standing around. She liked being comfortable around the people she talked to. So as soon as she sit down, she was practically leaning into Kaia as she gave herself a better look at the baby. She wasn't all over Kaia, but close enough that Kaia could smell the lemon scented perfume she was currently trying out. "I think your company and hers is perfectly fine, I'd rather miss Florian if it means he's sleeping," Lavinia confessed, "but no-no, it's fine, I'll only have something if you are," she said, as she tried to see Florian in the baby. She hadn't seen any of his baby pictures and it was a little difficult comparing a new born goblin to a fully grown adult. "Do they have a name?" She asked as she finally sat back into her own chair. "Or are they waiting six months or so?"

Kaia can tell Lavinia is a little bit excited to get a good look at the baby, and even though she's already grown protective of her niece, she doesn't think there'd be a problem with letting her brother's best friend carry her for a bit. It's more than likely Florian will promote her to fun aunt soon enough, even though Kaia has every intention to challenge that designation. "Do you want to hold her?" Kaia queries, glancing over to Lavinia inquisitively. "They did choose a name! About time, too. They argued about it for a solid day." And she'd know — she had stepped in as moderator for most of the argument. Florian didn't appreciate it very much, but his irritation had melted away by the time they reached a decision. "Megara Eirene O'Rourke Yaxley. Great peace, if you want to throw the meanings together. He was wanting to sneak a Lavinia in, but her mom fought that one tooth and nail." Was she insulted that Kaia wasn't thrown in the mix, or even Eudora? Yes. But Lavinia was a pretty name, and the woman that would've carried the honor of having a namesake really isn't a bad role model. Being the CEO of a company in a male-dominated field? Please, Meg would be lucky to have even a sliver of Lavinia's wits, charisma and leadership. She'd be lucky to have that perfume too, now that Kaia registers it — it smells wonderful. She kind of wants to ask which one it is, but that'd be too weird, right? "Water, tea, hot chocolate, American tea, chocolate milk, or soda?" Only one of these options is really healthy, but having three teenagers sort of forces her to deviate from enjoying a really healthy lifestyle.

"Oh, I'd be happy too!" She said as Kaia offered the baby-Megara-and took the baby into her arms, careful to support the baby's head. Lavinia laughed as Kaia mentioned her own name but also-she didn't really believe Kaia. It was a nice thing to say but she doubted Florian would have seriously considered Lavinia. Probably Eleni or Kaia more than her own. "It's very pretty, nice on the tongue," she said with a nod of her head in approval. "And I don't know-I might have to agree with the mum. Lavinia might have made the name a little too much." Of course, she's coming from someone whose own name ran a mile long so she was more partial to the shorter names. "And English tea will be just fine. I dread to think of what America did to tea," she said as she bounced Meg lightly in her arms. Lavinia didn't have a lot of experience with babies but she wasn't inept either. Especially considering her own niece. If Kaia had suggested wine, Lavinia might have said yes but probably not the best time to start drinking. "Have I been the only visitor?" She asked, out of curiousity really but also-she didn't want to intrude. They might have had hundreds of guests in the past hour (hence why Florian was asleep) and they could all be exhausted by this point.

When Kaia is sure Lavinia is holding the baby and supporting her head, she sits back, beaming at the sight of the happy woman. "Yeah, Eleni gave birth, too, so she and Hudson haven't been able to come by. Our other siblings are pretty busy, and Florian hasn't bothered to tell many others about her." She pauses for a second, admiring the sight she currently has. "You're a natural!" She's pretty sure Lavinia doesn't have any kids of her own, but she isn't 100% sure. She doesn't know the other woman well beyond what's all over the newspapers and magazines about her. "Do you have any?" Better safe than sorry, and also, it's a safe conversation starter! It's a win either way, she thinks. "Oh, please, our tea is better than the abomination you Europeans have. I might've lost a bit of my New York accent, but I promise you, that doesn't make me any less cultured about tea. There's a reason we dumped it at the Boston Harbor, and it wasn't just because of the Tea Act. I'll let you sit on that while I go get it going. I'm not sure what we have, but Florian loves English tea. I'm sure he brought something good." Kaia laughs softly as she stands. There's a brief period where she's gone, setting it all up magically, before coming back out. "It'll be a bit." She's quick to settle back down, sitting back on her chair. "So how are you? Florian mentioned you got a big promotion recently. Congratulations on that!"

When Kaia asked Lavinia about her own state, she actually barked out a laugh before holding herself back. It wasn't that the idea of having kids was funny it was just that her dating life had been so miserable that having kids just wasn't even in her periphery. "No, no, my babies are all my projects. They're a lot easier to give up than an actual baby and I haven't exactly been in the dating circle recently, or like at all. Work takes up a lot of my time and people, especially the men, don't really know how to handle my busy schedule if you get what I mean. It's hard to date when your job requires you to practically sleep on the job. Which is, like, fine. I'm not rushing into starting a family when it's, you know, just me." Lavinia shut her mouth before she began to ramble as she could see Kaia was wanting to escape into the kitchen. Lavinia wasn't even English but she didn't trust the U.S. "I'll have you know, the French do tea amazingly even though we tend to drink it from a bowl which, yes, I know it's very weird to an outsider. But we thought it was quite normal growing up...and thank you! Yes, I hear both of us need a compliment about that. Yes, it's...certainly a lot. Becoming heads of something. I don't know." Lavinia didn't want to be CEO but it seemed no one else wanted it either. It seemed to be like a classic case of a woman on a glass cliff. Except Lavinia was determined for the cliff to not shatter underneath her.

If Kaia weren't so sleep-deprived, she might've been a little offended at Lavinia's laughter, but in the state she's in? It's contagious. She grins at first, humored, and then joines in on the short laughter, shaking her head a little out of lingering amusement. "Men aren't very considerate of hard-working women, that's true," she agrees, nodding. It doesn't click in her head that it could be considered a jab at her ex-husband. It isn't! Kaia swears she doesn't hold any resentment. She's too young to let her life go to waste because of someone else. "A bowl? Come on, are you even listening to yourself? Bowls?" Kaia turns her head towards Lavinia, eyes fluttering slightly as she laughs again. "My God, do you do it too?" She does sober up a little after, the topic of her own promotion never failing to put her in a more work-oriented mindset. "I can't pretend to know what that's like... St. Mungo's is a very female-dominated workplace, or at least more than the average person might think. For what it's worth, though, I think you'll do a kickass job." Kaia sounds really confident for someone who knows nothing about the industry. She can at least say she's watched quite a number of the movies and shows produced by GMN. Most after her separation, largely action and horror movies, but her point still stands. Kaia does add, a few moments later: "And you always have another boss lady to visit and talk with whenever you like or need. I know how important a safety net can be when you're a woman so high up, and any friend's of Florian is a friend of mine."

"It's not big bowls! Drinking bowls! A lot of people have done it. The Ancient Greeks, for example. It's like drinking soup," Lavinia said, "but I have grown use to mugs so a mug is fine. But thank you, I hope I will. I have a good team to back me up. As long as we keep putting out good content then we'll be fine," Lavinia said as she smiled over at Kaia before returning to looking at the baby. Maybe Kaia did have a point when she said Lavinia was a natural. Not that Lavinia was thinking this, but with the way Meg was reacting to the woman said enough. "Though I have to say one of my first things I want to do is make it more female-dominated. Or at least balance it out. New perspectives, to say the least. And thank you-yes, that would be greatly appreciated. It'd be nice to have another girl to talk to. I'm constantly surrounded by men." Her only sister was touring the world, which means she was surrounded by her brothers. And her only friends were also men. It wasn't bad but it'd be nice to change it up a little bit. "How long are these two crashing here? You were really very nice to let him hide away here. This place is new, isn't it? It looks great from the outside."

"Drinking bowls are just as weird, sweetheart. And soups are meant to be drunk with spoons! Don't tell me you tip the bowl back? You'll burn the lining of your esophagus that way!" Kaia tsks, adopting a much more maternal tone even as she shakes her head. It isn't judgmental, per se; just an expert warning from someone who cares about her welfare her best friend's healer sister. She quiets down after, though, watching with a small smile how Lavinia rocks her niece. She still holds she's a natural, but Lavinia seemed pretty against the idea of kids for now, and Kaia has never been one to push when it pertains to people who are essentially strangers to her. So she bites her tongue and minds her business, falling into a comfortable silence until Lavinia breaks it again. "I can see how that would be asphyxiating. I'm fortunate enough to work with mostly females, and I have my two sisters as well, plus all my cousins and pseudo-nieces. I could never imagine spending almost every hour of every day surrounded by bullheaded men. It's especially annoying when you're a woman in power and they still don't acknowledge it." She's heard enough crappy stories from Eleni to at least be able to understand how toxic that kind of environment can be. "Oh, thank you! Yes, it's new. But it's really not a big deal having Florian here. He's my brother and this is the least I could do for him when he's going through all this, even though all he's been doing is piss me off lately," she sighs, clearly a little miffed as she's reminded of his recent shortcomings, but still puts on a strained smile that was meant to seem not-as-angry.

"But it takes so long with spoons and-does it really do that? How?" She asked, making a face. Soup can't be that dangerous. Honestly-Kaia was a healer, Lavinia was going to see that attitude from a mile away so she didn't think to much of it. Lavinia hummed in agreement as Kaia began to speak again. Unlike Kaia, who said it was a comfortable silence, Lavinia had spent the entire time thinking break the silence she's going to think you're awkward, so she was glad when the conversation began again. Lavinia doesn't do well with silence, even if she had a baby to focus on at the same time. When the conversation was turned onto Florian, Lavinia ended up turning her gaze onto the smaller woman then her head subconsciously tilted to the side as she smiled in sympathy. "Yes, I did imagine there'd be some tension going on right now with the whole secrecy thing going on. I can't imagine that'd have blown over you and Eleni...must feel like the rug is just being ripped out from under you again and again. Can't be easy." Lavinia was sympathizing her, trying to guess what it must be like to be Kaia Yaxley right now. To be balancing a new job and then your family expanding ten fold was impressive. "You're a good sister."

"Hot foods and drinks can irritate the lining of your throat and esophageal tract. Thermal energy is the biggest threat when you consume anything, outside obviously choking hazards." And speaking of, there's a small clinking sound coming from the main door. Kaia seems to know what it is, and offers one last smile before she stands up to open the screen door. A teapot with a cup. In Kaia's defense, she isn't a fan of tea. The only tea she likes is southern sweet tea, which — oh, there it is. There's a table between both rocking chairs and its the levitating items' target. "There we go." Kaia thinks about Lavinia's words as she pours her tea in. She could've done it magically, but she knows some people consider an over-reliance on magic lazy, and she doesn't want to give her the wrong impression now more than ever for a number of reasons. "Eleni doesn't seem to care much... or she's trying to. I think in spite of how dangerous it was having Meg prematurely, Florian got off lucky with the timing. Eleni just gave birth, too, so it's not like she has the emotional capacity to really be frustrated with him like I am. It's hard feeling this distant from my own siblings, but... it's not like there's really much I can do, you know? We've all grown and changed. It can get lonely sometimes, especially with my own back at Hogwarts." Kaia pauses. She realizes quickly how much she's unloaded on Lavinia in such a short time and tries not to grimace. "I'm sorry! I didn't mean to burden you with all that. It's..." she trails off. Kaia shakes her head and puts on a happier smile. "What about you? Any siblings?" She's pretty sure Lavinia comes from a powerful family as well, but Kaia isn't too sure and would prefer to not embarrass herself.

The more you know. "Well, good thing I don't mind my food luke warm," Lavinia said after a moment. Lavinia smiled in thanks as Kaia poured the tea. Honestly-she didn't think twice about using magic. She'd grown up with two brothers-she's seen worse use of it. "How was the labour?" Eleni was always someone so...strong, so much fortitude, that the image of her being in pain and being exhausted afterwards was a jarring image in Lavinia's mind. "Yeah, I'm one of five. A set of triplets below me and a sister above me. We tend to be the same...kind of. I was never close with my older sister and the triplets were always tight so I...well, I found my own niche." She didn't mention that it was her who was often helping out raising the triplets-her parents were busy back then-so that set up a different dynamic than most siblings had. "So yeah, I get it, it can be lonely. Especially when everyone else seems to be so close with their siblings. What year is the twins in at Hogwarts now? Fifth or sixth? I always get it mixed up. And-no, don't apologise. It's fine. I'll give Florian a clip over the head later. And I'm sure Eleni does care-watch her get upset when she finally processes it all. Let Florian think he's in the clear with you calming down and then she can start it up." What point was siblings if they didn't keep each other on their toes?

Kaia is still smiling, but her cheeks are flushed and she looks embarrassed over her little ramble. She's grateful for the advise and subsequent change in conversation, though. The latter more than the former. "It was okay! She was exhausted, but handled it better than I expected. Obviously it helped that her husband was with her, and she knew I was right there, too, but knowing her, I really thought she'd have a crisis and a half," Kaia quips, chuckling. Her tone isn't malicious; she's just being truthful. The Yaxley flair for dramatics lives on in all of them, no matter what the extent of it is. "They're fifth years, and Diana is going into her fourth now. The infamous OWL year. They were miserable about it all summer," she regales. It'd been a relief to see them obsessed with their studies, though; it gave a sense of normalcy that they'd all needed. "Wow, triplets? It's with twins and I felt like I was going crazy half the time. I can't imagine three on top of another two," she admits, shaking her head. "Hats off to your parents. Mustn't have been easy for them."

"No, I don't think it was easy, but they had help in raising them so it all worked out well," Lavinia said with a shrug before taking a sip of her tea, forgetting it was hot and ended up burning her tongue and slid it back onto the table making a face. "Ah, I remember that year. I....wasn't as focussed on my studies as I probably should have been. I'm sure they'll do great, they're surrounded by smart people. I'm sure they soaked it all up. And really? Eleni having a crisis? She always seemed so put together." Lavinia really only saw her during the context of work and formal events and Eleni always seemed so professional, a little bit witty. "Florian never really let me hang around you guys a lot, and I think I might have been getting the wrong impression of you both. But I'm not surprised she didn't, she was in good hands." Definitely a compliment to Kaia.

Kaia tries to not smile, but it doesn't work. She laughs behind the palm of her hand — have to love the occasional self-esteem issues — shaking her head at the look on her guest's face. She glances down at Meg to make sure she wasn't jostled too much, but beyond being pulled into a state of consciousness, she isn't fussing at all. She's looking up at Lavinia with big, curious eyes, jaw stretching slightly as she yawns. "She is! But between you and I... she has her moments." It feels weirdly good to be able to talk so freely to someone about anything that isn't related to any patients or politics, or even her responsibilities to her family. It's liberating and relaxing. Honestly, this is the calmest she's felt in months.

Lavinia's eyes followed Kaia's because heaven forbid she's done something that she hasn't noticed. Babies were so easily traumatised. "Fair enough, I guess." Eleni probably let herself be more dramatic around family, let her hair down after such a stressful day. It made sense to Lavinia. "You know, I don't know if Florian's ever been vocal about it, or is even aware, boys can be a little oblivious, but...he's lucky to have you, and Eleni and the rest of you. Not that he doesn't think otherwise, he speaks very highly about you all. I think he's just scared about losing you." It was a general you but Lavinia could hear it in Florian's voice and the way he spoke. She could tell how scared he was about...well, losing respect. Lavinia wasn't sure if respect was a big thing in the household but she was assuming it was. "I think everything will turn out okay, though."

"I appreciate the sentiments," Kaia replies quietly but earnestly, smiling gratefully at the other woman for her kind words. She lets the conversation die out for a little bit, in case Lavinia wants to give her tea another try. She doesn't mean for it to last as long as it does, but Kaia doesn't want to be too big of a bother regardless.

Eventually, Lavinia stretched out her arms for Kaia to take the baby-easier to drink the tea without worrying about spilling the hot water all over the child. That'd be one way to never be invited back. The silence was comfortable and the tea was better than she expected. "You make better tea than the impression you were giving me," she said with a small smile as she poured another cup. "You recently moved in, right? Florian mentioned it a few weeks ago. How have you been here? Breaking it in and all that."
