Iris Lark Several of the homes here sustained damage. Iris was lucky, most of the damage was contained to the front of her home, and she was able to repair most of it herself. Today finds Bacon running around the back field, where the ground has been torn up and tilled. Iris sits on her porch swing, not moving, as she watches the sun make its way towards the horizon to set for the day.
Rexus Rexus arrives! He pauses at the edges of the yard to kneel down, "Hey there little guy!" he chirps at the little squeaker, reaching out to scritch bacon behind the ears a bi. Once he's said his hellos he rises up and moves on to to Iris, "Well, you're lookin pretty chipper this mornin."
Iris Lark Iris blinks when she sees Rexus on the edge of the yard. She gets to her feet, shading her eyes with the sun as she walks towards him and the piglet. "I suppose.." She says slowly, tilting her head slightly as she regards him. "What brings you all the way out to Avalon?" She says, smiling as Bacon trots in happy circles.
Rexus Rexus gives Bacon a few last pats on his back. "Oh, just came to see my old friend." he says down to Bacon, then grins at Iris, "And a certain lady." he winks, ofering a polite bow to Iris. "Now that things seem to have settled a little, that is."
Iris Lark Iris leans down to scoop up the piglet, cuddling him close as she gestures for Rexus to follow her to the porch. "Things have settled for now, but as always, in the could start up again anytime. This place is a powder keg." She sets Bacon down on the porch and takes a seat on the swing. "How are you healing up?"
Rexus Rexus takes a seat on the porch, leaning down to gently tap at his leg... as if to summon Bacon over for more scritches. "Oh, me? Healing slow... just taking it easy really... staying in bed, resting... going for walks every so often. And you? How are you doing?"
Iris Lark "Okay, I didn't really get injured.." Iris says, drawing her feet up onto the swing. "Just a lot of work that needs to be done, and in such a short time." Bacon trots over to Rexus, his little curled tail waggling. "I'm glad that you're taking it easy though, that's important. Have you found someone to repair your power armor yet?" She asks, pushing a lock of hair behind her ear.
Rexus Rexus leans down to scritch Bacon begin the ears, letting his scritches move down over his back, full-body scritches! "Oh, i've fixed it up.. mostly myself... patch job really.. we'll see how it holds out." he says. Standing, he pats his leg as he scoots over to sit next to Iris, beckoning the Piglet a little closer. "Indeed, there is still a lot of work that is to be done round here... I even got an offer in the Militia."
Iris Lark Iris leans down and scoops up the piglet, leaning across Rexus to settle him on the other side of the swing. The piglet is used to the perch and lays down, snorting quietly. "You did?" She asks, grinning over at Rexus. "The militia would be lucky to have you." She shifts and gets comfortable again. "Eden would probably love to take a look at your power armor, if you're looking for more than a patch job. She is amazing."
Rexus Rexus puts an arm about Iris, leaning against her slightly. "Oh... well.. we'll see... " he murmurs, "Eden... well.. if I see her i'll let her have a look, I do have some tools to rework my weapons... make them a little more efficient... but enough about that." he grumps, leaning in a little, "Did all that food get delivered?"
Iris Lark Iris tilts her head up, her eyes on Rexus as she speaks. "Eden is a wonder, and you'd be silly if you didn't let her at least look at it. She and I used to work together with the Vault group. She kept our car running so we could make it back from Mexico." She tentatively leans against him, arms folded over her torso. "The food got delivered, and they're putting what they can in storage and trying to figure out how to hand out the rest to those in need. I decided I'm going to keep the drive going until someone in town tells me to knock it off."
Rexus Rexus nods, "Well, I think i've found a new suit... of armor that is... i'll have to have Eden look it over." he murmurs, giving Iris a little bit of a squeeze. "I even found a map bit for vault 30... know anyone who is collecting them?"
Iris Lark "The Caine family is, I imagine they have quite a bit of the map." Iris says, gesturing to her rucksack near the door. "I have a small piece as well, but it's a corner piece so it's probably not worth much at all." She glances over at Bacon who has fallen fast asleep. "I'll ask Eden when she'll be around if you'd like, next time I see her." She gently pushes the swing so that it starts moving. "What is the new suit like?"
Rexus Rexus shrugs, "Haven't really had a chance to look at it yet... so fingers crossed." He looks down at the snoozing Bacon, smiling inwardly. The hand about Iris slides down to her waist, still giving a gentle squeeze. "Caine family... i'll.. have to find one..."
Iris Lark Iris quirks a brow and grins at Rexus. "Well I hope it's something you can use, and will keep you safe." She gestures at Bacon and chuckles quietly. "That pig was so ready to go out exploring until you came by. I think he automatically settles into sleep mode when you're around." She jerks a thumb towards the back door. "Probably from the times you and he were napping on the couch." She lifts a shoulder in a gentle shrugs and quietly adds. "You could always send the mayor some mail, let her know you have a piece and you'd like to give it to her."
Rexus Rexus chuckles, "Well, it's good to know I have Bacon's snuffle of approval." he murmurs, giving Iris a little squeeze. "The mayor? I'll have to remember that...." he says as he leans in, giving Iris's neck a chaste little peck.
Iris Lark Iris sucks in a quick breath and she turns to gaze at Rexus. "You confuse me." She murmurs, her eyes slightly hooded. She leans in to hug him, hiding her face against him as she continues to speak. "I can't ever really get a read on what you're thinking, and usually I ..well..I'm pretty sensitive."
Rexus Rexus raises an eyebrow, "Confusing? Well... I think of myself as fairly general...Though I suppose there are a few things that'll give me away..." he says, lightly slipping a finger underneath Iris's shirt, gently rubbing at the bare skin of her tummy.
Iris Lark Iris squirms then, being very ticklish, and she starts to giggle a bit. She opens her mouth to speak but she seems to stutter the words out a bit. "You..seemed interested and didn't. I didn't .." She clears her throat and glances over at Bacon who seems to have woken up at the noise. He makes snuffling noises as he moves closer to Rexus.
Rexus Rexus grins, "Didn't?" he is being a bit of a meanie as he continues to lightly stroke his fingers across her stomach, planting little kisses along her neck. "And here I thought you liked puzzles..." he says with a little wink, flicking his tongue across her neck a bit. Bacon bumps his snout against his leg, eliciting a few scritches from Rexus's free hand.
Iris Lark Iris giggles again and she ducks her head as she's tickled more. "I like puzzles that I can make sense of." She murmurs, catching Rexus' fingers and holding them. "I thought that you ..well I thought two things, one was that you decided I wasn't for you..and the other.." She glances at the piglet who seems interested in the noise, his little tail still wagging. "The other..I figured that you were serious about defending the town, so I didn't want to be a distraction to that."
Rexus Rexus chuckles, "Mmmmm, see you and I were thinking the same thing.. just not saying it... I didn't want to get confused and... I wanted you to have your space... Bacon too." he adds scritches, "So much on your mind, didn't want to add to it but now things seem to be a little more quiet.. who knows?" Both arms move round Iris to try to hoist her up and move her to settle in his lap.
