Time flies.

In a blink of an eye, how old will Shepard be then? Time was an awful reminder of age. He too was getting older, graduating soon. Then what? What would the future have in store? These thoughts seemed to flood the teen age father as he frosted the small cake--a personal one for the birthday boy to smash to his heart's content. Maybe he was looking too far into it, but having kids seems to make someone age faster. Pause. Leo looked off to the side with a deadpan look on his face. Obviously it does. Honestly, he was surprised he still lacked any grey hairs.

The cake was finished soon after. There was a base color of white frosting (because it is easier to get out of clothes) with the occasional light blue and a darker blue spots adorning the frosting. A '1' candle was perched up top. It was similar to an already done cake (for the guests) off to the side on the dining table. They were not expecting very many, so the cake was not very large.

The blond was about to move it over to the table when quickened steps came wheeling around the corner. Out of the side of the kitchen appeared a woman on the shorter side with curled brown hair and thin framed glasses. She had a right grin on her face, nearly matching that of the little boy in her arms. "Isn't he cute, Leo?" She presented the father with his son--grandma looking especially proud of herself. The boy wore a white shirt saying; 'Mr. Onederful" paired with grey pants and a grey fedora.

"V-very. Except--" The father lifted the hat off the boy's head and set if off to the side. "Much better." He decided, brushing the boy's bangs up and out of his face. Shepard scrunched his face up and turned it to the side.

"No hat?"

"No hat." Leo repeated, scooping up the cake and walking with it back to the table. He could tell his mother was giving him a look as he talked away, and no. It wasn't about the hat issue.

"Why don't you take a break, and I'll cook sweetie." The woman strolled towards the connected living room where a play area was set up. She placed the birthday boy on the ground near some toys before strolling back towards the kitchen. There was a pale look to the Father's face--imagining his mother's cooking--pure horror. He sheepishly smiled and waved his hands in front of him.

"N-no thanks, mom. Why don't you play with Shep until dad and Aleta get back with decorations?" His mother agreed and returned to the living room, leaving Leo to his cooking. The blond leaned against the counter, wiping away a bead of sweat that accumulated on his brow. That was a close one. He was certain that someone would have died if his mother had cooked something. He loved her to death, but she was not a good cook and she did not know that.

Soon enough, the party had been set up. Leo's father ended up assisting him in cooking, which he was thankful for. Aleta and his mother ended up setting all the decorations up, paired with keeping the little one year old from making his way into the kitchen. Looking over their work, Leo couldn't help but smile. It was nothing extravagant--but cute none of the less. Shepard seemed to agree, as he was already pulling on the streamers left out for him to play with. "I think you are just a bit spoiled if you ask me." The father sat at Shepard's level, opting to try and get his hair into place, much to his son's displeasure.

After all--they were expecting guests soon.

Mikaela knocked on the door holding a gift bag that was filled with a couple outfits and a teddy bear with wings and a halo. Of the outfits she had picked out, the shirts that came with said "Definitely My Father's Son" and "I'm #1!" She was proud of the first one, which had wings printed on the back. She'd had it specially made. Kaela couldn't believe that Shepard was already turning a year old! It felt like yesterday that he was barely crawling. And now he was walking. Time flew by too fast sometimes. She was proud of him, feeling almost motherly towards the child. She was also proud of Leo, for being able to keep up with his studies while also spending a lot of time with Shepard. She looked behind her to make sure the two children she had brought along were still there; they were being awfully quiet for children. Sure enough, they were politely waiting along with her. She shrugged and turned back to face the door for when one of the Hermans answered it.

Sylvia held on to Cai's hand strongly. Her little baby brör was quiet, as usual, his pale face, still bearing the signs of malnutrition, hidden behind his long, black bangs. She patted him on the head, only earning a subtle tilt to assure her he was even feeling her touch. It was hard for her to get used to this - never had he been a lively child, but at least he would look her in the eyes once and again. Maybe meeting the little kid would help out.

"Hewo, Mr. Hermer~" she smiled, standing wobbly on her legs. She been learning how to walk and now she could do it better and better. A great accomplishment - she walked almost ten steps out of the DayCare by herself without falling. Then she fell, and, thankfully, didn't scratch her already marked knees. It was a small home party, but for herself, it couldn't have been more exciting. She needed to hold that in thought. No turning into a wolf onthe baby's birthday, that was settled, both by the DayCare staff letting her go, and by her own wish. Maybe they'd even turn out friends.

The birthday boy was spared from his father's incessant grooming at the knock on the door. The baby watched his father stand up and approach the door. Shepard had seen this happen many times before. Usually when there was a knock--there was a person. The boy seemed to stare in apprehension at the door.

Leo pulled the door open fully expecting exactly who he saw. A grin split across Leo's face almost stretching from ear to ear. "Mikaela!" The blond beamed, giving her a gentle hug before bending down to the children's height. "Hello to you too, Sylvia. How is Cai today?" He asked in a soft tone, leading them into the living room.

The room was homely by nature. Filled to the brim with warm colors and pictures new and old. The far wall hung a practical mural of such photos in a disparity of sizes, frames and content. The only bright colors were the decorations of blue and a lighter blue creating a juxtaposition between the two. Aside from that, a play area was set up near by, where the birthday boy himself sat, smiling a near toothless grin at the sight of Mikaela--a caregiver who he had spent a lot of quality time with. The smile seemed still in place as he watched the two other kids enter. The boy twisted around, plucking a random toy and presenting it to the other children with a goofy look.

Aleta scurried around the corner, sliding in her white socks across the wooden floor of the dining room. They gained traction once again when they made contact with the carpet of the living room. "Hey Kaela, it has been for ever." She stopped in front of the other girl, bouncing on the balls of her feet. They had spent a bit of time together at the daycare where she would occasionally visit.

Mikaela smiled brightly, wrapping her free arm around Leo. "Hey!" she greeted. Watching him greet Sylvia and Cai, she beamed even brighter because he was just incredible with kids. She couldn't believe how well he dealt with them, whether they're shy and quiet or loud and cranky. Even Mikaela had a certain level that she just couldn't deal with. But Leo was usually always there to swoop in and save the day.

She motioned for the little ones to follow them as Leo led them to the living room, where the first thing she noticed was Shep flashing her the most adorable smile. She smiled back and then stuck her tongue out playfully. She chuckled when she saw Aleta slide across the kitchen floor with her socks and nodded when the girl spoke. "It has," she agreed. "One of these days we're gonna have to get together and grab a cup of coffee or something." She enjoyed Aleta's company and didn't like that they never got much of a chance to hang out. Hopefully that would change. "So where should I put Shep's present?" Kaela asked her, not seeing a specific spot for presents.

Leo's greeting almost made the little girl loose her hold. He was one of the volunteers and she absolutely loved him. Smiling brightly, she pressed a finger on the blonde's nose and made a 'boop' sound. "Cai's being a little annoying and grumpy bror, as always." the toddler replied, looking down at him. He was looking at Shepeard with a spark of interest in his eyes. Grinning, the small girl guided him through the room, glad to practice her walking some more as Cai crawled behind her. The quiet boy plucked the toy from the birthday boy's hands and began examining it - it was in much better condition than most toys at the DayCare. Sylvia was plopped down besides the blonde baby, working her small hands with a rubber band and trying to tie his short hair.

He wasn't normally one to intrude, but it wasn't as if he were any sort of stranger and the door was wide open. "Hello?" The Headmaster called out into the doorway, inviting himself inside. Even while he was busy with school affairs, and everything that entailed with them, he'd made sure to find time in the day to bring little Joanna along to her friend's birthday party. What was the point of being busy all the time if you couldn't make room for your own children to have fun? "We're here!" Nate bounced the little girl on her lap as she stared around the room.

It didn't take her long at all to find her little caremates. "Is S'ep!" she exclaimed, staring up at her father with wide eyes and pointing with her fingers. He just laughed.

"It sure is," Nathaniel cooed back, dropping her to the ground and letting her waddle off to the other toddlers. And waddle she did, wasting no time and plopping her happy butt next to the others while he himself got settled in, trying to figure out where to throw in their own presents - which his daughter had happily picked out herself.

_____

"Come on, don't cry. You'll make us both look bad," Dakota wavered outside, not wanting to go in and meet the other parents and people until she had managed to get her own child to calm down, at least. She lingered around the corner in hiding, trying her best to shh and soothe the small baby. Maybe she wasn't shaped up to be the best kind of mother. The Spring didn't want to go in alone, at least. "If I can't be a crybaby, you can't either..." Even as she chattered him, she held a slight smile to her lips.

Will approached Dakota with Stephen in his arms. He could hear Cody starting to fuss so he smiled. Stephen pointed to the small infant and went, "Bababababa," which is what he called Cody, or really any baby. Will nodded. "Yeah, that's Cody," he said. "Everything going okay, Kota?" She looked pretty tired still, which was to be expected with Cody. But if he needed to soothe Cody while she took Stephen in, he would. He promised he'd help her and he's been trying.

Leo's eyes followed Sylvia as she reached up to 'boop' his nose--eyes crossing as she did so. He laughed and stood upright. "Some things never change." His eyes took notice of the door. Oh! Had he left it open? "Come in!" He called, stepping around the already gathered toddlers to approach the door. Leo paused in his steps as he watched Nate glance around for the present pile. "Ah--over here Mr. Wright."

The blond gestured towards a smaller table near the opening to the dining room. it was lightly decorated with a blue table cloth and...glitter? Really Aleta? Blue eyes narrowed at the table. Leo hadn't gotten to look at the other decorations, and hoped none were as nearly as tacky as this. The teen seemed to be right with her brother in directing people towards the table. However, the look on her face seemed that she was rather proud of her use of glitter.

It was then that Leo noted the dull pain in his arms. Brows narrowed, he rolled up his sleeve to examine is fore arm. The skin was red like someone had taken to slapping it. The father tilted his head, and before he could make a comment, Aleta peered over his shoulder and spoke his own thoughts. "You haven't been outside in forever. Like--how can you get a sunburn like that? It looks nasty."

"I'm not sure." The father shook his head and rolled the sleeve back up. He had a party to run. "Snacks are over here," Leo began, shrugging off the mysterious burns."We also have baby food for those kids who haven't started teething yet." Shepard fell under that umbrella to a point. A tooth point actually. His bottom two teeth were coming in.

There was a tilt of Shepard's head as Sylvia messed with his unruly hair. He had an impassive look about himself, not particularly minding the girl messing with his hair. Hell, he even let Cai take the toy he had from his hands without much of a fuss. Shepard was too absorbed in watching the adults wonder around. The voice of one of his favorite caremates sounded from the other side of the room.

As if he was trying to get a better view among legs of the adults. A grin crossed his face, and hands clapped together as she ran over to join them. "J-j-jojo" Shepard managed, almost nailing the 'j' sound, though appearing conflicted on his own pronunciation. It didn't take very long from him to get over it, and reach behind him. A tiny fist reached for anything he could find, and came up with a small stuffed animal with crinkling sounds inside of it. The little elephant had intentional patches on each foot to make it appear colorful, paired with a tail that had a rattle on the end. The blond considered the toy for a long moment, face dropping the smile, and taking up a look of narrowed eyes, quite similar to the one his father was just making.

It passed Shepard's test. The birthday boy passed it over to Joanna, holding it out for her to take.

Sylvia looked at all the kids gathering with a bright smile. Her ears were beginning to take a rather wolfish form, but the toddler didn't notice. All those new kids meant new friends for her and Cai, and new friends meant so much fun! She wanted got up from her sitting possition, planning to go over to Joana as well, but she ended up forgetting once Leo mentioned the 'baby food' and the 'teething'.

"I'm the best at teething! Rawr!" she began to burst into rather unsettlingly real howls, much like the squeals of real wolf cubs in the wild. She quieted down in embarrassment after a couple of seconds, plopping back down with a silly grin on her roundish face.

~~

Cai played with Shepeard for a while, oblivious to the adults around him, but soon many people started to pour in and the baby was abandonned by his newfound friend. He looked around, his large eyes blinking lonesomely for a couple of seconds. He snuggled on the ground next to his sister, drawing closer to his sister and resting against her.

She had wanted to arrive earlier than everyone else, but she wasn't as early as she had hoped. Wanting to help out with the decorations was the original plan, though she ended up fiddling around with nothing in particular. Though the place seemed kind of crowded now, didn't it? Energy and enthusiasm leaking from every corner she walked around, party favors and... there was a lot of noise in the building. All voices she were familiar with: Leo's angelic and soft voice, fitting for Mr. Angel himself; sweet and doting older sister Sylvia, someone a bit on the newer side; upbeat and spunky Mikaela; over there was Aleta; the academy's headmaster was around too, with Jo, and-- Was, was that crying? It was faint, difficult to hear, but if she strained herself a little more, there was definitely someone outside who was in tears. She couldn't lie to herself that maybe she was a little disappointed not to hear Serenity yet, but that was okay. There was a lot of people to talk to already.

... Was her English still bad? Or had it gotten better? Hopefully it had. Two years was a pretty long time, so she had to have improved by now, right? Maybe it wasn't very impressive to everyone else, but being able to navigate around the daycare and town without anyone's assistance was a tidbit she was rather proud of. A few people had kept telling her to use a cane, though that was a very very bad idea. What if she lost the cane? The moment she lost that contraption, she'd be very lost and unable to move anywhere. And okay, maybe the Hermans' house wasn't the most familiar place to her. But she definitely didn't need the help. Not at all. She was almost old enough to become a student at the academy. That'd basically qualify her as an adult, wouldn't it?

Taking a few steps out of her private little corner in nowhere in particular, misty silver-blue eyes scanned around. Okay, so Shepard was over there because she could see those two spirits that were always by his side floating then. Everyone else was a guess with only her senses to guide her, but even that was proving a little difficult with the avalanche of voices in practically every direction. Smacking her palms to her cheeks a few times, maybe for self-motivation or something along those lines, she took a few confident steps forward. A bow in greeting to the group around Leo.

"Hello anh Leo, chị Mikaela, chị Aleta, and chú Wright," Linh quickly listed off like a checklist. Those were the voices she heard over here. She didn't miss anyone, did she? Not that that mattered too much because she just wanted to talk to those two spirits a little; it was impolite not to greet everyone older, though. Vietnamese honorifics still used out of reflex, but she liked the sound of everyone's names with them better. They sounded nicer.

With a quick clear of her throat, her gaze curiously peered up to what everyone else would consider thin air. "Is it your birthdays too?" she asked. It wasn't that she forgot it was Shepard's birthday or anything - not at all -, but her present wasn't quite ready yet. Maybe a few more minutes tops, if everything was on schedule. And after that, she'd have to scurry right back to the daycare, incognito, and snatch it.

The two toddlers turned to face the young girl. The only one who could see them. It had put them off at first, yet had begun to appreciate the girl for talking to them. They glanced at the other, wings fluttering as if treading air even if there was no need to. The smaller of the two girls spoke first. She had an angelic voice, light, at a high pitched tone like a child yet somehow articulated better than most adults. "We cannot have birthdays if we were never born, Linh." Annabelle turned her head to the side. "Though, we like to think that Shepard's birthday is like our own." That thought crossing the guardian angel's mind, she gave her brother a glance--watching him hand his toy to Joanna.

While her father went off to get their gifts and snacks in order, Joanna let out a pleasant squeal as she took the toy from Shepard's grasp with a grateful smile. She held it up to the light, inspecting it herself, twisting it and turning it around in her hands and admiring the unique shapes and colors that captured their attention so perfectly. She gave it a good shake, and another, pleased at the little sounds it made and showed it off to the new girl beside them; then snatched it back when it became a little clear that their new friend was a little teething happy.

"Than you..." The toddler giggled, clumsily leaning forward and throwing her arms around the boy. After bouncing the toy off her leg a little longer, she smiled and finally held it out to Syl in offering. SHARING IS CARING.

__

Dakota sighed, tucking a few red strands behind her ear, where she could manage. "I've never been so tired in my life," she confessed. All the bouncing she'd tried with Cody that entire morning seemed to be for not. How did she end up with such a fussy child? His father certainly never seemed like the type to be so full of complaints. (Then again, she still couldn't say the same for herself, and her parents might have been able to tell a few interesting stories.) "You wouldn't mind if we switched for a bit, would you? Maybe he'll like you more right now."

With a slight, hopeful smile, she held up the infant, stepping closer to Will and leaning in so she could just as easy take Stephen out of his hands.

Mikaela was a bit miffed that no one answered her question, but forgot about it quickly once Linh approached them. She though the little Vietnamese girl was adorable, and enjoyed her when she was under Mikaela's watch. "Hullo, Linh," she said cheerfully. She chuckled when Linh asked if it was any of their birthdays too, not realizing that the two ghost girls were floating near them. Shaking her head no, she answered, "Nope, only Shep's."

Will nodded, as he leaned down to switch children. Stephen nearly leapt out of his arms at Kota. He wasn't sure if his son was wanting to get closer to Cody or was genuinely excited to see Kota. It was both, most likely. The Autumn took the infant with a small fuss, although once he got situated with Cody he began to quiet down. "Are you ready to go in now?" he asked, wanting to go in together. He was still getting to know Mikaela and Leo. Shepard was the only one he knew, but that was because he and Stephen got along swimmingly. But everyone else was almost a stranger to him, so showing up alone wasn't high on his "to-do" list.

Syl resisted the urge to excitedly wrench the toy from the little girl as she handed it over, tilting from side to side happily as she finally got hold of it completely. She played with it in her mouth, tugging onto corners with her barely there teeth. Grumbling to herself, the girl kept at it, listening to the mundane talk of the adults that towered over the bunch of kids. The eldest of the babies felt the warm touch of the small hands of her brother creeping up over hers to touch. Hesitantly, the girl let her grip on it up and watched her little brother tilt and turn the toy for a couple of minutes before tossing it away towards small ring formed by the four children sitting. Disappointed, Sylvia began picking at Cai's black locks scoldingly, holding a part of his hair in a messy braid and lifting it with a grin. "Lil' dummy Brör~" she hummed to herself, slowly pronouncing each word.
