Dr. Carlisle Cullen ([personal profile] ofthefamily) wrote2009-11-22 09:34 am

After Volterra, at work.

Work is a refuge for Carlisle as much as it is a livelihood for his family, their veneer of normalcy.

Even if Carlisle has started to see things.

She appears the first few times just for a second. A girl with unmistakable bright blue eyes and golden-white braids in a grey hoodie in the walkway at the hospital watching him when he has a crisis to deal with and can't stop to think about it. Watching him solemnly, and when he looks up, he sees her just in time for someone to pass in front of her and she's gone with inhuman speed.

It's even gone so far as to walk outside the ambulance bay, swearing he saw a flash of blond and fleece he recognized.

Long day, he surmises. Time to hang up the lab coat in the office and clock out.

And when he does she's standing in the mostly empty hallway, again, in the first place he spotted her. The evenings of a hospital are not dead, but they are not as packed. She doesn't stand out in her grey and black, even though people are compelled to smile at her and stare a second too long.

She's waiting. She's more than the definition of patience.

She's part of the very spark that gave birth to it.

Still she has a calm, enigmatic smile for him.

She is preeminent smooth movement unbound to creatures and bodies even here. Even in the blue jeans and a grey fleece hoodie, that she's still playing with the hood fastener of. Only his senses would be able to register her bare feet don't cause a sound, never touching the ground.

"Would you prefer it that I were?" It's guileless. Accommodating.

She's well aware of the two people who've been there, and which he prefers and how. But things change. Things change. It's who she is and a smidge of why she's here.

Because she is, the word fond is wrong here. Star, preeminent of faith and hope and peace, is fond of every single thing she's ever seen or known. So her siblings would not call it fondness, but they are aware she is watching him.

"You are very loud." She says it with a smile like a child.

"He is still very young." Carlisle is an infant in comparison, too, but both things are sweetly put. Out loud and inside. It's part of what makes beings so beautiful, so important.

Star tilts her head, watching him and his desk and his keys. Those are shiny. "Was it not very long ago, yet after the time I told you I had already been with you?"

"It was a very long time ago." Star says it, with maybe as close to sympathetic simplicity as she might get. "They came, they endeavored, they returned. Their gifts revisited in the spirit of their first learning."

"Don't you?" Star's expression softening. She flitted toward his desk. Fingers, pale and warm, pressing the edge of his desk. "They're step on the path is the only reasons every other one ever happened for you."

She doesn't take offense. She wouldn't know how to. "There are very few in your heaven or earth who can claim to have even once been allowed to do so much for the one they love."
bright_daughter: (Nervous)

[personal profile] bright_daughter 2009-11-22 04:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Star's eyes blinked, eyebrows moving together. "Pear-shaped?"
bright_daughter: (You Know Better)

[personal profile] bright_daughter 2009-11-22 04:43 pm (UTC)(link)
She looks almost like she wants to be confuse. "Nothing has changed that you aren't changing."
bright_daughter: (Intrigue)

[personal profile] bright_daughter 2009-11-22 04:54 pm (UTC)(link)
"Did you have confidence in your ability to control time and destiny and the danger your children find themselves in before you knew?"
bright_daughter: (Hurt)

[personal profile] bright_daughter 2009-11-22 05:08 pm (UTC)(link)
He is so far from ready to know even this is trivial compared to the coming storm she'd spoken of. So far less than ready to know he'll withstand that one, too, even when the darkness consumes everything.

Star simply let him think about that.

She's not hear to brow beat him with what he knows.

Star smiled, impish, resplendent. "No."

She'll leave that to his erstwhile children.
