Chapter 190 - Reece - A New Endeavor (VOLUME 2) Short

~~

Reece

~~

Seeing the families reunited brought a tear to my eye. I would never admit it, I had an image to maintain in front of everyone now. But I was beyond happy that the situation was mostly resolved.

But there was still one problem. Those that no longer had a home to return to. This aligned with something I was already thinking very hard about.

Gabriel had mentioned when he first came to see us that most of those in the Sentinelle had joined because they no longer had a home to return to. That might have been harder to take care of all those years ago, but now it was something that was comparatively easy to fix. Even more so for someone like me.

I had resources at my disposal that most people didn't have. Most of the time I didn't know what to do with my personal wealth. I had spent so much of my time working and avoiding people that it was difficult for me to step away at times. Now I had a mate and whenever I was away from work and even while I was there, she was all that I thought about.

But now, with everything that had happened recently, I felt like I had a higher purpose. I had something else that I needed to put my focus into. And I had a feeling that my adorable little wife would be all for it.

With our newest visitors resting, and the previous visitors, those staying for their safety, in their respective rooms, we returned to our room to talk. Neither of us had slept since the battle last night, and it was just after lunch but we were exhausted. We planned to get some sleep after we took a quick shower.

With the exhaustion, and recent heartaches, I kept everything pretty cool. I didn't think she was ready for the steamy, hot and heavy moments just yet, not while we were so tired. So our shower really was a quick event meant just for cleaning up.

As we climbed into bed, decently clothed, I brought up the subject I wanted to talk to her about.

"What do you plan to do about those who don't have a home to return to?" I asked in a nonchalant manner.

"What do you mean?"

"The witches and warlocks we brought back. The kids that don't have families. What should we do? Where should they go?"

"You want to kick them out?" She asked me as if she thought I was a monster.

"No!" I exclaimed vehemently. "No, I want to help them. With Otsana's help we have gotten the kids to stay with us. But we need to figure out something more permanent."

"Do you have something in mind?" I seemed to have peaked her interest at least.

"I do." I smile at her.

I went on to detail the plan I had been mapping out. It wasn't half hearted, but it wasn't fully formed yet either. But I knew, with her help, we would be able to make it happen.

My plan? Well that was to take some of the unused land I owned outside the city and build a community where any supernatural without a home could feel safe. Somewhere they could all live together and support each other. With the ascensions my Little Bunny had made recently she was the Queen of much of that world, and I would not deny anyone a chance to live safely and happily. I also knew that my little mate would feel the same way.

With Little Bunny's compassion and smarts, Juniper's healing mind, and my desire to help (and a considerable fortune) We could get this issue taken care of swiftly. And with Vincent on our side we would be able to tell if anyone coming to stay in our community was trustworthy. This was something I could put my full passion into. 

"You really thought about this, didn't you?" She seemed so shocked. 

"Do you really think I am stupid or something?" I asked her jokingly. "You know I graduated highschool early and went on to finish my degrees early as well right?" I felt the need to remind her that I may have done some stupid things but I was infact not an idiot.

"Really? I didn't know you ever graduated Dudley." 

"Which dog is that?" I asked, just knowing that it was another fictional character, just one I wasn't familiar with.

"A very stupid cartoon one."

"Meanie." I frowned comically at her. "Why are you always so mean to me." She laughed at that, more hysterically than I ever thought she would. Honestly it was a bit much.

"It takes one to know one. Remember that Fido. If I am mean then what does that make you?"

  "But I stopped my wicked ways." I pretended to pout and I pulled her to me. "I'm a loyal lover and a caring mate now, aren't I?"

"That you are Trusty, that you are."

"You really like calling me dog names, huh BunBun?"

"Oh, don't you dare call me any bunny names. You get to call me Little Bunny, but nothing else."

"That's hypocritical."

"Yeah, but I don't care. You're my little puppy that needs to be trained."

"And you're my Little Bunny that I get to eat up."

"You are such a pervy little puppy."

She leaned forward and placed her lips on mine, silencing me, stopping me from talking back any more. The kiss was soft, gentle, and full of love. It was everything I could ever want, need, for her to show me how much she loved me.

"I love you puppy dog."

"I love you too, Little Bunny." I smiled at her with love filling my every fiber.

I pulled her against my chest and snuggled her close. That was all I needed to do. Holding her close to me filled me with warmth. I felt the exhaustion wash over me, and when I turned to look at her I saw that she was already on the edge of sleep. I squeezed her just a little closer, just a little tighter, needing to feel her against me as I drifted off to sleep.
