"He's growing up nicely, don't you think?" Sanderson murmured as he played with Lucien who was cooing loudly.

—-[humphrey smiled at the soft words of his husband. the cupid watched the two on the large blanket, lucien finally able to sit up but not crawl around just yet.]

[settling down with his lover and child, the cupid only nodded, grinning.]

"Yes, very nicely. So nicely we still have to keep an eye on him or he’ll float away. Naughty little starfish he is."

He caresses his cheek, cooing softly, knowing that Humphrey was hiding more emotions then he was letting on right now.

"It’s alright, love," he kissed him "I believe we will meet again, as we are conected. Remember?"

Their bond that joined their hearts.

—-“I know Sandy, I know…” 

[he pressed his forehead lightly against sanderson’s. it eased his bubbling fears and the cupid could feel his shoulders relax in the caress and cooing of his lover.]

[their hearts were connected. bound and touched and embraced in each other, even now as humphrey let his troubled heart to nudge softly at sandy’s bright one. the cupid snuggled against sanderson, wanting comfort.]

"I love you Sandy. And our son Lu. So so much."

"I love you too, both of you," he said softly, snuggling Humphrey’s heart with all his might.

"I love you very much~"

Looks up at Nightlight dragon and slowly pokes his snout.

Goes cross-eyed trying to see down his own snout. Huffs and shakes his head.

He half sneezed at the blinking disoriented for a moment before giving Sandy a look. ~Not hero. Strange word.~

"Yes, a hero." Sanderson repeated more firmly.
"Or do you think you are not a hero to those whose lives you saved? To all the little ones that you gave that much needed light to overcome all bad?"

He reached out with his hand again, gently rubbinh the bridge of Nightlight’s nose.

"Hero doesn’t have to be a master warrior who fought many battles and emerged victorous. Nor he needs superpowers. A hero is not someone who doesn’t fear."

"Deny it all you want, but for many you are a hero, Nightlight. And it is your humbleness that makes it even more true."

Hero might be a pretty word but he knew it wasn’t one meant for him. Though he did lean into the touch.

Moonbeam liked to call him that word sometimes, but Nightlight was still ever so weary of accepting it. He knew what happened to ‘heroes’ knew what had happened to the last great one.

Best to stay a Nightlight and not a Hero.

He saw with fondness that Nightlight didn’t really agree- but that was okay, there was a plenty time for him to learn to accept at least a slight praise.

"Never say that saving those people was nothing," he murmured "Because life is a priceless treasure."

There was more to the boy’s refusal of accepting the word- and Sanderson might have an inkling what- but he wasn’t one to pry.

"He's growing up nicely, don't you think?" Sanderson murmured as he played with Lucien who was cooing loudly.

"Yes, very nicely. So nicely we still have to keep an eye on him or he’ll float away. Naughty little starfish he is."

"I don’t know," he said honestly. Star didn’t really have concept of afterlife- their journey ended when they joined the stardust rivers that cross the universe.

For Humphrey’s sake though, he hoped they will meet again.

—-[humphrey sighed, inhaling slow and deep to try and calm down. the cupid didn’t want to go into a small panic of the thought of losing sandy. but it still hurt.]

[an afterlife was such a sensitive issue with all immortals. even humphrey didn’t know where his soul would go after his life as a cupid would be. hades would surely have a ball having a cupid’s soul but.. he was a human first. that called for reincarnation, at least.]

"I will hope then. Hope that we will meet, after death, my star." [he murmured softly before giving a sweet kiss to sanderson’s head.]

He caresses his cheek, cooing softly, knowing that Humphrey was hiding more emotions then he was letting on right now.

"It’s alright, love," he kissed him "I believe we will meet again, as we are conected. Remember?"

Goes cross-eyed trying to see down his own snout. Huffs and shakes his head.

That got a snort out of him.

He was no great hero. Calling him that felt funny. Like the Lunar Lamas saying it again. It just felt funny.

He gave a gentle slap to his snout at that, before crossing his arms and raising an eyebrow at him.

He half sneezed at the blinking disoriented for a moment before giving Sandy a look. ~Not hero. Strange word.~

"Yes, very nicely. So nicely we still have to keep an eye on him or he’ll float away. Naughty little starfish he is."

"It is similiar with humans," he murmured "We form bonds, make friends and enemies… While it is nice to feel other stars around, I don’t feel as… comfortable meeting them."

He shifted. The darkness of his own failure left mark on him- forever he will have trouble trusting easily, socializing. But he was happy- Lucien and Humphrey was all he needed.

"One day I will be gone from this world," he kissed Humphrey’s hand "Not even star lives forever."

—-[humphrey leaned into that kiss to his hand, pulling sanderson and lucien both into his lap and holding them closely to his body. their cores, his son’s and husband’s heartbeat always soothed any worrying thoughts.]

[humphrey knew everything was never to last forever. but that did not mean he didn’t want it to last forever. humphrey sighed, nuzzling into sanderson’s hair.]

"Where do stars go.. ? You have… souls yes? Energy? Somewhere, someplace where the memories and emotions go? You don’t just simply.. not exist, right Sandy?" 

[humphrey held his husband closer, fear taking over.]

"Right?"

[they would meet in death, wouldn’t they? in another life? somewhere, anywhere?]

"I don’t know," he said honestly. Star didn’t really have concept of afterlife- their journey ended when they joined the stardust rivers that cross the universe.

For Humphrey’s sake though, he hoped they will meet again.

Goes cross-eyed trying to see down his own snout. Huffs and shakes his head.

That, was very strange but also very nice. He still didn’t understand what Sandy meant by beautiful but he was enjoying the petting.

"Always so radiant, smile so bright it lights up darkness in any heart, eyes so kind they warm any lost sould," Sanderson continued softly, still petting him.

"That is Nightlight, the ever so gentle Guardian, fierce protector of all in need…" he smiled at him again.

"What an amazing hero indeed."

That got a snort out of him.

He was no great hero. Calling him that felt funny. Like the Lunar Lamas saying it again. It just felt funny.

Sanderson smiled softly.

"As far as ending goes, I do nit mind fading," he said gently.
"Because it is stardust that helps to form new worlds, and new life."

He nodded at his next words.
"I am aware, though I don’t know them personally." He chuckled "Doesn’t mean I have the need to seek them out. By a Star’s standards, we are all roommates."

—-[humphrey pursued his lips thoughtfully before nodding.] “I was only stating is all love. I am not sure… how happy you would be around your own kind? I know nothing of stars-“

[he paused, before shaking his head. that was a half lie.]

"No, I do know of what stars are capable of and what they may be like but never on a personal level. My relationship with stars is er.." [sanderson knew. humphrey and his husband have talked of his past before. of his eating and consuming of stars.]

[and the reminder of that made him frown deeply, pink eyes glancing at lucien who was slumbering.]

"Even if fading means new life, I would rather you… not become just star dust. Not like the others."

"It is similiar with humans," he murmured "We form bonds, make friends and enemies… While it is nice to feel other stars around, I don’t feel as… comfortable meeting them."

Goes cross-eyed trying to see down his own snout. Huffs and shakes his head.

Nightlight gave as best a smile as he could in a dragon form. ~Too kind.~ He offered comfortable at last.

He chuckled and rubbed the bridge of his nose, knowing from experience that was one of the best places to be scratched.

"I shouldn’t be surprised really. You are always beautiful."

That, was very strange but also very nice. He still didn’t understand what Sandy meant by beautiful but he was enjoying the petting.

"Yes, very nicely. So nicely we still have to keep an eye on him or he’ll float away. Naughty little starfish he is."

"Who knows- maybe instead of the ability to weave dreams, he will be able to weave love- gift people and lift spirits and happiness of those who needs it." He smiled.

"Stars…" he sighed softly "Almost all stars were once like me. But either they faded- or they core got too great, and they became just silent watchers on the night sky…"

—-“Lift spirits…? Mmm, I’m not sure. Maybe? I have never heard of such a thing in Cupid history. But I am the first Cupid born after Eros, so maybe even my old mentor knows how to do such magics.”

[humphrey bent down to give sanderson a soft peck to the cheek, frowning at his sigh and words.]

"… I hope you do not fade love. Nor do I wish you to be just a silent being of the skies. I think that would sadden me should you fall into dust or isolation. Lucien too. He loves both his fathers. But speaking of stars.. I know of two who are still roaming around, aside from you. Asterope, a wishing star who’s hair glows like the sun and Mr. Sterling, a silver star who lives on Earth as a hermit of sorts. The Sandman from our realm.. he is more alien than star, so I would suppose he does not count."

Sanderson smiled softly.

Goes cross-eyed trying to see down his own snout. Huffs and shakes his head.

Blinking he craned his long neck to watch Sandy work. Watching and understanding as he went. Though the not sitting up straight was a very very strange indeed he tried it. More comfortable for long wings but very strange for the usually upright knight.

He couldn’t help but strole the scaly back as he set the wings into more comfortable position, marveling at the glowing scales Nightlight was sporting, the rest of them briliantly reflecting the light, just like the boy’s usual armor.

"Truly beautiful," he murmured, smiling.

Nightlight gave as best a smile as he could in a dragon form. ~Too kind.~ He offered comfortable at last.

He chuckled and rubbed the bridge of his nose, knowing from experience that was one of the best places to be scratched.
