Runaways Legacy 3.80

Once Dani is out of hearing range……

Dragus:  “What the hell, Evangeline?  Stop trying to turn my daughter into a mini-you.”

Evi slowly:  “Your….daughter?”

Dragus:  “Yes, my daughter.  You had no hand in raising her and I don’t want her becoming some low life criminal.”

Evi clenches her fists at her sides:  “She’s my daughter, too!  Even though you conveniently forgot to tell me about her!  And you didn’t seem to mind me wanting to be a criminal when I was her age….”

Dragus:  “I thought you would eventually grow the hell up and realize that you wanted something better for yourself.”

Dragus:  “Go upstairs and get changed.”

Evi:  “What’s wrong with the way she’s dressed?  I think she looks adorable.”

Dani:  “Yeah, daddy.  Criminals dress like this and I’m going to be a famous one like mom.”

Dragus feels his eye start to twitch because the very last thing he wants for his child is to be some lowlife criminal!

Dragus:  “Go.  Upstairs.  Daniella.  So, I can talk to your mother privately.”

They sit down to talk, both of them too over come with emotions and old memories to stay standing much longer.  When Dani walks out to greet her father…..

Dani:  “Hi, daddy!”

Dragus slowly:  “What…are…you….wearing?”

Dani:  “I’m going to be just like my mom when I grow up, don’t I look cool?”

Dragus loses his smile as he’s suddenly reminded of one of the reasons that he’d stayed away….one of the reasons why he hadn’t wanted his daughter around her mother…..

Dragus:  “Princess……”

And suddenly they’re both reminded of their past as images from it flash past them, they’d been through so much together.  They’d been so close once upon a time….

She’d been so confident and acted as if the world was hers to rule, he’d called her Princess because of it.  He’d been scarred, not just on his face but also his heart.  He had closed himself off from the world.  Yet somehow, the little white haired child had managed to make him start caring again.

They’d gone from not liking each other to a deep friendship to something more.

I just about died here, this is a new save for them and technically they have no history other than sharing a child.  Yet, the first time they saw each other they stood there for a long time just giving each other those longing smiles.  My babies missed each other!

Evi is trying to figure out what she’s supposed to do with the kid and school, should she send her?  When she hears a knock at her door.

Damn all these visitors lately!

When she sees who is standing there through the glass, she is frozen in place.  She doesn’t want to open the door, she has no idea what she wants to say to him.  

They stand and stare at each other as the world comes to a complete stop…..

Little schemer playing chess and working on her genius skills while waiting for her dad to arrive.

Dani to herself:  “I wonder when daddy will get here?  I hope it’s before I have to go to school.  Maybe I should redo that room in pink?  I know my mom will hate it but I like pink and she needs more girly stuff in here.  All this black is sad…..”

Makes a move and then giggles to herself because being naughty was so much fun!

Dani to herself:  “Oh….I should also get some toys.  One of those monkey bar things but in pink.  I think if mom got rid of some stuff in this tiny patio there will be room.”

Dragus is silent for a long moment and the silence almost scares Dani out of her plan but then she thinks about those photos she’d seen on her mother’s wall and forces herself to go on.

Dani:  “She said that she’s going to keep me and take me away from you.”

Dragus:  “What?  The hell she is!  I’m on my way….”

Dani smiles as she hangs up.  She’ll have to see about having one of the rooms redecorated because if she was going to be living here?  She wanted a girly room, her mother didn’t seem to like girly stuff all that much.
