Rachel held her daughter carefully, she didn't trust herself to hold her properly but she was copying what she had seen Kai do.

Sirius waited outside.

Scareth got Jess to a safe place, and as they materialised, Jess seemed to simply faint.

"Ah." Kai said at seeing them, not sounding particularly enthused. "I forgot that it was both of you."

Ian grimaced because he'd forgotten too.

"Nice to see you too, son of mine," Tuesday replied sarcastically. "How's the wee baby."

((I'd guess we'd have to skip for the whole Death/Jess/Faye/Serenity/Scareth thing to resolve. Maybe, when Death comes back and Jess has to tell him about the lost baby?))

Sirius kept his mouth shut as his wife 'requested'.

Scarlet smiled at seeing them. "Ah, both grandparents have come to see the newborn." She smiled. "It feels like ages since we've all gotten together."

Rachel held her daughter.

"For good reason," Kai muttered. "I like my house standing."

Tuesday ruffled his hair and he tried to look annoyed. Instead he seemed quietly pleased at the attention, especially when she murmured, "Well done."

Ian crossed the room, to make it closer to the back door than the front door.

---

Around a week after the incident, Faye knocked on Scareth's door. Aria was the one to answer, gasping miserably at the still healing scar taking up most of the right side of Faye's face.

"Sorry," Faye murmured, scraping her hair across to try and hide it. "Can you get my brother? Jess too if she's - if she's feeling up to it."

"Sure," Aria said softly, shooing Lucy away from the door who'd shouted, "Auntie Faye!" in excitement at hearing her voice.

Rachel watched them, looking to her mum as she stood by her, stroking her daughters head as Rachel held her.

"I still thimk she looks like Kai." Scarlet told them.

Scareth walked downstairs from where he had been trying to get Jess out of the guest room after she had holed herself up in there since and he kissed Aria's head. "Hey, thought you would be away longer." He told her. "Jared is sitting outside the guest room door trying to coax Jess out."

"She's pretty," Tuesday agreed. Ian looked really put out at their ability to bond over children.

"Of course she's pretty," Kai scoffed. "She's got Rachel in her."

---

"It's nearly...okay," Faye said slowly. "He..." she didn't know what to call him, because she had the mantle of Death at the moment. "He'll be okay soon. I wanted to make sure Jess was okay." She stepped inside, moving stiffly. What Serenity had done, she hadn't recovered fully from.

Aria looked on sadly as if she could see more than she let on, and Faye squirmed uncomfortably under the look.

"At the moment Jess is not doing so hot, she hasn't fed since, and I don't need to tell you what happens when a vampire doesn't feed." Scareth told her, before he brought Faye upstairs. "Can you try and talk to her?"

"She's crying again...I didn't think he had anymore tears left." Jared told them from where he was sat against the door to Jess' room.

Rachel looked at her dad. "Dad, don't you want to hold her?" She asked.

Scarlet smiled slightly as she looked at her husband, she was trying to encourage him.

"She's very sad," Lucy piped up. "Sometimes it makes me sad."

"That's why I told you to stay away sweetheart," Aria murmured softly, trying to usher Lucy out of the conversation. "It's bad for you, and sometimes people don't like having their feelings felt, okay?"

"Sorry it wasn't sooner," Faye mumbled, keeping her scarred face from Lucy's inquisitive gaze. "There was a loose interpretation with the permission. 'Discussing it earlier' doesn't explicitly mean yes, so we didn't know if he'd come back at all."

---

"Don't worry." Tuesday held her hands up and went back to join Sirius, keeping her distance so Ian wouldn't take an aggressive stance.

"I'm not backing up," Kai said. It sounded like a promise, his voice hard.

"Just...give me a minute." Ian smiled, but it was tight. "A little wound up from all the people."

He nodded. "I give her one more hour and I'll break the door." Scareth told Jared as he got up and stretched, picking Lucy up into his arms.

Jared slid over to Faye. "So, what's changed?"

Rachel nodded, kissing her daughter's heaf.

Sirius stayed out of the way.

Scarlet walked to him, gently stroking his hand.

Lucy pouted the entire way, hanging over Scareth's shoulder like a lazy cat, grumbling, "But I wanna help her not be sad."

Aria reached out to touch her cheek as she followed. "Let the others try first, sweetheart."

---

"Death wasn't really his name, just a concept, a role in the world. When we started look for the others, he said...if it came to the worst point, I'd take it, but only temporary. It's like a bottle of water. I can have the bottle and move it about but I'm not allowed to open the bottle or pour the water out." Faye sighed. "He was weaker than he thought, stretched too thin too soon, but I can hear him, again. He doesn't feel dead anymore. He's close. I was hoping Jess would be...okay."

---

"So Cain is just waiting to swoop in," Ian murmured so quietly his lips barely moved. "Just so you know."

Kai hovered by Rachel, as if trusting none of them with his daughter and wife.

"You can be our special weapon." Scareth promised her. "And that's always used last."
_________

"I think she needs him to help her." Jared told her.
_________

"I know, I can feel him, but it's okay." Scarlet told him.

Rachel looked to him.

"Special weapon?" Lucy gasped, pushing herself upright so she was face to face with Scareth. "Really? Awesome!"

Aria laughed softly.

---

"I know," Faye mumbled. "But you know, coming back from the dead isn't easy." She smiled, tiredly. "He has to take it back from me little by little. It's hard to keep up." She tapped her face. "It's why this hasn't gone yet. He needs everything left over."

---

"I'm trying to make it so our granddaughters first experience is with me but." Ian grimaced.

"Sorry," Kai murmured. "I don't mean to hover I just..."

Scareth smiled.

"No, it's fine." Rachel told him.

Scarlet nodded. "She will know both of you, Cain will love her just like you will."

Faye grimaced. "Probably?" she replied, sounding unsure. "I mean...I've still got hold of War, so that'll probably keep me kind of protected?" She hesitated. "I mean, he can't take that unless I give it, so there'll be something left behind. I just have to build it back up again." She rubbed at her scarred cheek, fingers compulsively touching the rough skin. "Anyway, I should talk to Jess. I can...maybe channel a message through, if she's patient."

---

"I'll be the best secret weapon ever." Lucy sounded determined and then frowned suddenly, glancing over Scareth's shoulder back through the doorway. "Auntie Faye is..."

"We know sweetheart," Aria interrupted. "It'll be fine. Remember what I said about not listening when people can't help it."

"I know," Lucy said quietly, chastised. "Sorry."

---

"She's just so tiny," Kai murmured, still a little bristly, like he couldn't turn the protective side of himself off.

"I know. But I'm still...I'd be jealous if it's him that meets her first," Ian admitted.

"I guess I'll have to take that and he moved to let her through to jess' room.

Jess was curled up under the windowsill.
