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’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."

“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 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."

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 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.
