Kevla inevitably shrugged a bit at that. Psych had a definitely good point and they had paid the price in the form of Arutha's fiance, Micah. Or this is what she had suspected, but she wouldn’t say it. For Arutha needed the closer that would come with finding out what happened to him. “That is sadly true enough she said softly.

Kieran flushed a bit embrassedly at Psych's question. He had thought that the man was aware of what they were. He didn’t know why he had thought so. For they just met the man, but there was just something about him that made you want to try to trust. “Yes we do.” He admitted. “My gift is an affinity for cats and snakes. In essence I can hear their thoughts.” he began to explain before looking at his cousins in askance. Though just as he did he saw the strangest of flickers in the man's appearance.

“Yes we do.” Kevla started to confirm then the alarm filled yowl filled her mind.

Jumping in surprise at the sudden hiss, Arutha's eyes went wide and he frowned deeply as the need to protect his family rose in his veins. There was no question that Naoise was apart of it now  As a result, the table started to rattle a little. “What are you?” he demanded, looking quite ready to rumble.

Psych smiled cheekily at Kevla “Interesting? Ha, things like this can get you killed, or hunted” he said with a teasing wink, although he said it jestingly he knew from harsh experience just how true his words were. As the group grew quiet then started talking almost disjointedly between themselves he sat back and followed the interesting conversation with his eyes, guessing the cat was asking questions he couldn’t hear.  At the mention of the siblings and Kieran’s abilities his jaw dropped slightly which he promptly shut with a snap.

“Ummm?” he said as he raised his hand with a little wave, his forefingers and thumbs sticking up and the last two fingers closed and curled downwards. “You guys have abilities too? And what do you mean listening ability?”
Felling a little unsettled for the first time since joining the interesting group his tail and wings twitched causing his glamour to shift slightly before settling tightly around him again.

Naoise was busy listening to Kieran when he caught the slight mystical ripple around Psyche out of the corner of his eyes. Turning his head and his full attention towards the irritating human he narrowed his eyes and really looked at him, magically as well as physically. 
At seeing Psych for the creature he was he yowled in surprise before arching his back and hissing loudly at him
*Beware! * he sent to the group *He is a pretender, He is not even human *

Kevla had to smile at the ease of Psych's reaction. For all this strangeness that she had helped to heap on him, he acted more interested than put off. It was something that she was grateful for. For maybe they finally had another ally in this bizarre city and world they had now found themselves in. "True but it is stuff like this that makes life interesting as well as worth living." she said before chuckling at how heartedly he started to eat the candy bar.

Arutha shrugged a bit at Naoise's words. "It would seem so, but maybe this could be a blessing in disguise. For he might know someone who could help us." he gently pointed out as his fingers continued to pet him. He understood the danger of trusting a stranger especially in this city, but maybe this would work. What could he say? He was an optimist about this but he wasnt sure as to the why exactly. "As for being a drama queen, it's okay.  It's not your fault. You were taken by surprise by Kevla's big mouth. I'm just glad that you're better now."  he said sincerely before focusing his attention on his cousin at Naoise's question.

At the question Kevla turned her head to look at Kieran as well.

Kieran lifted his eyebrows as he suddenly had the attention of the majority of the table. "Well, I don't have much. When first presented with my listening ability and these two their ability to move things, I dug into what I could for our history. What I was able to dig up was that five generations ago a female ancestor of ours had an affair, but there was no information as to the who. Though it wasn't a normal one. There was an article that I found detailing her disappearing as a young girl and then reappearing 3 years later with a child in tow, looking  like hardly any time had past. There isn't much more than that. For there was a fire. So a lot of the records were missing."

“Hmmmmm” grunted Psych uncertainly as he flicked his gaze around the strange group he had stumbled into. He certainly didn’t think he would stumble into this kind of mess when he got out of bed this morning. Reaching his hand up he gave his face one more rub before sighing deeply. “Fine, it’s fine. Truth be told I have no one to blame but myself. I’m far too curious for my own good” he said before leaning over and picking up the offending candy bar.  With a wry smile he ripped the top of the wrapper off and bite into it with relish.

Naoise also sighed as he watched Psych pick up the candy bar and tear into it instead of getting up and stomping off as he had hoped he would. *Well I guess he isn’t going anywhere* he sent sardonically to Arutha, *and I am sorry for being such a drama diva* he continued as he fondly battered his head against Arutha petting hand. Ignoring the candy munching Psych for the moment he focused his attention on Kieran.

*So, Kieran* He sent out on a psychic thread that all three could hear. *Can you give us any answers about your family history that could explain yours and your cousin’s abilities? *

Kevla’s guilt grew as she saw the items around them rise higher with every growl that escaped Naoise. She didn’t know what to say as she met Psych’s amazed gaze. For this was too strange and honestly too crazy of a sight to be able to deny. Now she hoped that her risk would pay off.

Arutha ever so gently pet Naoise, his hand soothingly moving over his face and then his back. His own was a mask of worried concern as he slowly felt the man calm back down and the telepathic sound to dissipate. Even though he was still pissed at his twin, his main concern was the man before him. “Yes that’s it. Good.” he whispered to him.

A second later he had to have an involuntary laugh when Naoise purposely flung the small candy bar at Psycho’s head. “I’m sorry to laugh but Kit is a very private person and he wasn’t expecting my twin to reveal all our secrets to a stranger. To be honest neither was I.” he told Psych before shooting a half glare to Kevla. Even though he didn't quite like the man or know him, he didn't want to get off on the wrong foot.

When Naoise apologized, he reached out to try to gently pet him once more. “I would but I think that Kevla has got it. As for you just try and rest. I want to make certain that you are okay.” he said softly but protectively.

Kevla contritely frowned but then nodded at Arutha's words and Naoise's subsequent apology. “I’m sorry about that Psych. So is Kit. I was the one that stirred the pot. I know how Kit is and yet I did it anyway. I thought that maybe somehow you might be able to help, even though it was quite risky.” she said.

Kieran had to stifle a giggle at the candy incident. Even though his mind was still a whirl. This was quite funny, especially the look on Psych’s face when it smacked into his head. Still he had to shrug at the apology. “No worries. It just goes to show that anytime that I’m with my cousins. It is never boring. I’m just still amazed that I can hear you. I've always had a certain knack with cats but for this...juat simply wow."

Psych watched in amazement as items began to float in front of him, and at Aruthas words he quickly flicked his gaze at the growling, brisling cat.

Naoise shivered beneath Aruthas gentle touch and with each stroke his breathing became slower and slower until his mind cleared and his breathing returned to normal.

Psych opened his mouth to start asking more questions when all the levitating items fell back to the table with a small plonk of noise except one chocolate candy bar which, after a slight narrowing of Naoise’s eyes; flew across the table towards Psychs face at an almost alarming speed.

The candy bar hit with a loud slapping noise and with enough force to cause Psychs head to whip back slightly causing Naoise to purr with satisfaction. He hated being surprised and he hated even more for people he didn’t know to pry into his business.

“What the Fuck?!” exclaimed Psych loudly as he rubs the spot between his eyes before glaring incredulously at Naoise. “Did you just whack me upside the head with a fucking candy bar?” he asked as he carefully swabs his face with his fingers, his forehead farrowed with an agitated frown as he checks his fingers for any signs of blood.

Looking around the table Naoise's feelings of satisfaction quickly turns to shame and embarrassment. He had let his shock of both Kieran's abilities and Kevlas quick trust of this stranger rattle and overwhelm him.  * I am sorry * he said along the telepathic link * that should not have happened. I generally have better emotional control that that and I shouldn’t have exposed my abilities like that either. I certainly shouldn’t have used my abilities in a petty state of pique. If you could please apologize to our nosy newcomer for me I would appreciate it. And I apologize to you as well Kieran* he sent towards Arutha and Kevla's cousin incase he could still hear him. *This must be a total shock for you and extremely confusing to say the least.*

Naoise sighed slightly, this was not how he imagined this day to go. Still even though he was sorry for his outburst he couldn't help but feel more then a little amused either as he watched Psych continue to rub and dab at the spot the candy bar hit him

Kevla had originally said what she said in order to maybe make Psych go away. Her thought was that he would think that they were crazy and just move on. Now in hindsight she should have known better. Everyone and everything in this city was not what it seemed to be. So the odds were against her from the get go. Still this might work out for the best. For they might get some help in their search for answers regarding their own abilities as well as to be able to help Kit.

"That part is complicated. Hence our need to come here to do some research to get more answers." she explained just as her twin looked at her with a 'what the fuck?' look. She shrugged back at him. What was done was done. Now was the time to deal with the fall out. Still she was curious as someone called Siobhan was mentioned. "Though who's Siobhan?"

With huge eyes, Kieran nodded at the question. "Yes I can hear him in my head." He didn't know quite what to make of the situation but he was interested on finding out why.  His eyes got bigger as he heard the strangest sound as everything nearby started to vibrate and levitate.

Arutha angrily looked at his twin as she blurted out their secret. Honestly what the fuck? What the hell was she thinking? She didn't know that they could trust this overly confident man. Experience told him that there was always more to a pretty face be it for good or ill. 

So at Psych's question he shortly nodded just before his jaw dropped at Kit's reaction. Shit! It wasn't that he could blame him for being like this after his sister was an idiot. So he acted quickly and reached out a hand to try and soothe Kit. "Breathe Kit. Just breathe. I'm sorry Kevla's an idiot. Come back to me." he murmured gently as he lightly tried to touch his face.

Kevla's face filled with guilt as she saw Kit's reaction to her blurting.

Psych's eyes opened wide as he leaned back in shock at Kevlas sudden explanation before he turns his gaze towards kit and looks at him anew. “A guy you say? “Quickly overcoming his shock he leans forward and looks at Kit with interest “So you’re cursed?” he asked curiously. “Who by? “He then turns his eyes back to Kevla when an answer doesn’t come quick enough “Do you know who cursed him?” he asked with burgeoning excitement.

Psych couldn’t help but feel curious at the extraordinary situation he suddenly found himself in. Curses were not new to him; he knew many people from many different works of life had the ability to create and implement such acts of power, human and non-human both. Nor did he find the idea of sitting in front of a man cursed into a different form to be impossible. No if there was one thing he had learned from living in the city as long as he had it was that the extraordinary tended to just walk around the corner right in front of you. The impossible wasn’t the extraordinary occurrence, it was finding those with open eyes and minds to see and appreciate it that was the rare oddity, the miraculous, the truly extraordinary occurrence.

“Wait…” he turned his gaze between the four before him before focusing on Kieran and Arutha ” You two can hear him…as in like telepathically?”
He looks back at Kevla with amazement “ They meant telepathically right? Cause I’m pretty sure I didn’t hear him speak.”

Gripping the back of the chair with his hands he leaned and grins broadly, no longer able to suppress his excitement. “This is so damn cool! I gotta tell Shiobhan…or not” he finishes as his excited grin falls from his face and he sighs heavily in resignation.

Naoise looked at Kieran in utter shock and bewilderment as he admits to been able to hear him. He hesitantly starts to form a small telepathic probe to send to him to see if he could actually talk to Arutha and Kevlas cousin when he hears Kevla tell this stranger their secret causing him to whip his head around and look at this guy as he sits back in shock.

He tries to form coherent responses to his questions but the only thing that forms in his mind as answers are strange squeaking sounds or more like a softly whistling tea kettle, either way he was having a small mental meltdown at the sudden spot light that had been shone onto him and his life. In response his fur bristles as his ears turn and lay almost flat against his head and a low yowl issues from his mouth. In total shock and completely out of control, pens, paper and snack start to vibrate then levitate slightly above the tables surface as Psych finishes prattling on and sits there with a grin spreading across his nosy face.

Arutha's blush brightened a fraction at Naoise's comment. Then his jaw dropped at Kieran's confused question.  "Holy hell! You can hear, Kit. Can't you?" he asked him. His cousin had always a certain knack for cats as snakes. Up until now, he had written it off as just that, but maybe with their current abilities it was more.

Kieran nodded, eyes wide. "Yes...I just don't know why. I've never heard animal thoughts before. I've only gotten feelings off of cats before." he said with a thoroughly baffled look. Just what on earth had they gotten themselves into?

Kevla's eyes widened a fraction at the scene between Kieran and Arutha. Holy crap! It looked like things just got that much more complicated. Still there was this newcomer to deal with. She just hoped that he turned out to be someone they could trust in spite of his seemingly cocky nature.

So she turned her head to look back at Psych with an akward smile at the question. "It's nice to meet you, Psych." she said
softly. "As for your question, the answer is more than a little crazy sounding. Our cat is not a cat even though he currently looks it. He is a man trapped in that form by a spell. The name we call him is Kit." she explained while trying not to wince at how bad it sounded.

Then of course the man tried to pet him. "I'm sorry about that. He doesn't like being pet by anyone other than my brother."

*It’s not just about your ass,  I enjoy…* Naoise was saying in response to Arutha only to his his fur stand up in shock at Kierans confused response. *What? He can hear us?* he said in Kevla’s and Arutha’s mind * You can hear me? * he repeated tentatively towards Kieran.

Meanwhile whilst Naoise was having his mental heart attack Pysch strutted towards the table and pulling a chair our he turned it around “Nice to meet you all” he said as he straddle the chair. “I’m Psych" He stated with an air of casual simplicity. "So…”  he continued with curious amusement “What do you need a cats help with in a library? Unless you’re planning some kind of cat burglary” he asked with a sardonic grin "Althoug I’m pretty sure there isn’t anything worth stealing in this library.”

Psych flicked his sea coloured eyes around the group with curious amusement. What a strange group they seemed and he knew some people were mad about their pets but for the life of him he couldn’t think of why anyone one would go to such extremes as to smuggle a pet cat into a library, talk about separation anxiety. Not that he was one to overly judge eccentricity was the spice of life and these guys had certainly peeked his interest.

“I have to say tho” he continued as he settled his gaze on Naoise “That is an extremely large and cute cat” he said as he stretched his hand towards the animal. “Hey Kitty kitty . Whats its name” he asked as he continued to stretch his hand out to pet the creature only to raise an eyebrow and draw his hand back in startlement as Naoise's fur bristles and stands up on end.
