Canon: What now?

Who: Chase
Where: their house
When: After Ashley learns some possibly disturbing news
Notes: Only if you feel up to it - replies will be crazy delayed 'cause i have to work.

Pony camp was ...irritating. She didn't mind kids in small doses, but some kids and some horses just didn't mix. On the plus side...at least Brenna wasn't working with the kids. She had a feeling there would've been at least a couple of fires if she had been.

Still, she'd met a few interesting people in the course of the days she was working with the kids. Apparently, the wolf pack was fairly large - thanks to a rogue were who hadn't known what he was doing - and now included a couple of tigers.

While she was talking to the girl tiger - Miri - Ashley learned that one of the witches had been turned into a wolf. At first, she'd been annoyed. Then, she saw the upside to it. Then she realized who it was, and decided that was just a disaster waiting to happen.

So it was time to make sure Chase didn't start anything - though he had free rein to finish anything the other one started.

"Honey, I'm home," she called tiredly as she stepped into the house, slipping off her shoes and dropping her keys on the table by the door.


"Hey baby," Chase said, smiling as he walked over to hug her. "Missed you."
"Mm.." she made a quiet noise as she hugged him, pressing against him. "I miss you too," she said before she kissed his cheek. "I ... met a very interesting person today, who had some very interesting news." She still wasn't sure if this was a good thing or a bad thing, but 'interesting' was one of those neutral words that could work either way.
"And in our world that's never a good thing," he said, smile fading as he braced himself for whatever news she had.
"Well," she started carefully and diplomatically. "It could be a good thing. I just think there were... you know, eleven better candidates than the one they picked." Not that it had exactly gone down that way, and from what she understood, there was a great deal of peevishness on the part of some of the others, but what was done was done.

"First, there are two were tigers in town, but they've been... integrated into the wolf pack, so ... that's not a big deal." She exhaled, and continued. "The big deal part is...one of the witches got turned into a wolf."
So there was someone who could actually fairly face him now. "Which one?" Chase asked.
She bit her lip, shifted her weight, and reluctantly admitted, "Bart. I guess...he and Libby kind of hit it off, and...well. She thought it was a good idea."

And she was pretty much alone on that front.
"Well she's insane," Chase said. He didn't know Bart hardly at all--having never met him for everyone's safety--but he remembered Ashley's impression of him. Then again, hadn't they felt the same way when he'd been vamped? Weird how the tables turned.
Ashley grinned, and shrugged. Libby was generally okay, but turning Bart? Yeah, that was insanity. "Yeah. So, you and B are under my official orders to leave him alone. B can't wait to start trouble with him." She sighed a little. At least she knew Chase wouldn't kill Brenna - she didn't know that Bart wouldn't.
"Tell Brenna if she starts bother him I'll get jealous," he said sarcastically. But this seriously sucked. "He hasn't gone all wolfy and hurt anyone yet, right?" Because if he does, one guess who they'd probably send after him...
"He hasn't even shifted yet. And when he does, he'll be with the pack, and Corey can totally take him," Ashley assured him. "I bet one of the tigers could, too," she realized with a little grin. She almost wanted to see the pack run - eight wolves, a hellbeast, and two tigers. That was bound to look interesting.
He'd forgotten about Corey's Hellbeast status. "Does he still have his magic though? It didn't affect that?"
"Not as far as I know. I mean, I didn't think to ask. I assume it's fine or ... we'd've heard more about it." She nuzzled at his cheek lightly. "It's... it's not necessarily a bad thing. That he won't age. Maybe then they'll quit calling on you for everything," she said with a little smile.
He nodded, because that would be a good thing. "And we could have something that resembled a normal life?"
"Mm, normal," she agreed with a smile. It would be nice, for them to not always be the first line of defense.
Chase wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her close, holding her against his body. "I love you, Ash," he told her. He couldn't remind her enough these days.
"I love you too, Chase," she murmured, nestling against him. "It'll be nice," she said. "And maybe, someday, you two will get along." She grinned.
"About the time pigs learn how to fly?" he asked teasingly.
"That sounds about right," she agreed with a grin.
He kissed her smile, matching it with his own. Glad to see you happy again.
Glad to be happy again, she thought. Things had been quiet (at least on their end), and she was glad for that.
