Care Two


Chapter 2


I loaded up my bag and double checked that I had everything I would need. After browsing the general overview of Miss Smith’s file, I had made sure to take an in-depth look at her medical history prior to the accident that had altered her life so traumatically. It was part of my policy; learn everything I could in advance so that I wasn’t going in blind. Patients were not always forthcoming about their situations, and many were embarrassed about some of their illnesses.

It appeared that not only was Miss Smith suffering from depression and paralysis, but she was also diabetic as well, and had surgeries prior to this accident that left her unable to bear children as well.

I rubbed my face a bit. This was going to be a lot of work, but I was more than ready for the task. Getting into my truck, I began the drive over to Miss Smith’s house, already knowing the neighborhood easily. I’d grown up for most of my childhood here, and Dr. Smith was still my family’s physician. I had not met his daughter, but from family stories I knew she was lovely.

Parking quickly, I noted that the little house was well-kept on the outside, the lawn finely manicured by professionals. The mailbox was rather full, which was worrisome to me. Grabbing my bag, I retrieved the rather large stack of mail and rang the doorbell to wait for an answer. A soft voice from inside acknowledged my presence and it was several minutes before I heard the rolling of wheels coming towards the door. Two tumblers from locks were released, and the door opened inwards.

“Hello? May I ask who you are, please?” Her voice was soft, and a little bit worried.

“My name is Chris Oakenell, and I am a physical therapist and caregiver with Caring Hands. I’ve been sent here to assist you in your recovery. You are Miss Amelia Smith, correct?” I gave her a warm smile; she blinked owlishly before looking at me almost suspiciously.

“I am, but who authorized you to come here? I certainly didn’t, and I am sorry sir, but I do not appreciate you just showing up here when I haven’t cleaned the house and I didn’t ask for your services. So with that being said, I thank you for collecting my mail, and I wish you to have a good day.”

As she slowly rolled backwards from the door with the stack of mail I’d offered her, I noted that she was hardly able to push her chair along, let alone reach up and close the door on me and lock it. As she struggled to close the door, I carefully placed a hand in the gap to stop her. A frustrated, almost scared sigh escaped her.

“What do you want from me? I didn’t ask for your services, sir. Please leave.”

“I am sorry, Miss Smith. I would leave if I was able to, but I have not been contracted by you to fulfill my job. I have been employed by Dr. Peter Smith and Mrs. Jane Smith, your parents. I have signed a contract that is binding, and I simply cannot leave the premises without a full assessment today Miss Smith.”

I watched her, careful to keep from displaying much emotion beyond the sincerity I felt. Before me was a broken woman, clearly deep into depression, and extremely fragile in every way possible. She had a fighting spirit buried deep...but only time was going to tell if I could rekindle that and encourage her to fight for her health. Watching her face, a flurry of emotions went across her features, from fear, to anger, to sadness, to absolute irritation.

“I did NOT authorize that. If you don't leave now, I'm going to jam your hand in the door and call the cops!” She was getting very upset, nearly on the verge of angry tears.

“I apologize, Miss Smith. I understand that you did not authorize it, but I simply cannot abort my contract and leave right now. Please, let’s make this easy; I will come in and assess you and your home, and then we can go from there. Please. I don’t mean you any harm or upset, and I apologize for upsetting with you this.” I raised my palms up, the universal gesture of peace.

“I said NO!” She once again attempted to close the door on my hand, pushing as hard as her frail form could. Out of respect, I removed my hand from the door. As it was almost closed, I could hear her growl of frustration as she found that she needed to get closer to the door to lock it again.

“Miss Smith, you do understand that I cannot leave and it’s mandated by legal contract that even if you lock this door, I cannot leave until I’ve assessed you?”

“I said no several times now, and I’m about to lock the door. End of story. You can leave at any time, say that it’s a lunch break, and get OFF my property. If you do NOT leave, I am going to call the police and have you cited for trespassing and harassment!”

“Lock that door, I dare you. I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house down if you do.” I inwardly chuckled as I heard her squeak.

“What?!”

“You heard me. You’re not hearing impaired.”

“You wouldn’t dare!”

“What do you know about what I would and wouldn’t do? You have no idea what’s covered in my contract, Miss Smith. Your father personally added that clause.”

“....Fine.”

“Pardon?”

“FINE. Come in. I swear to high heavens that both of them are going to get the earful of a lifetime. I am PISSED.” She took a deep breath, shaking her head like she was trying to clear out the angry thoughts. Looking back up to me as I opened the door, she raised a brow, “Well are you going to assess me or stay out there all day? Hurry up and let’s get this shit over with.”

“Yes, Miss Smith.” I couldn’t hide the smile. Yup, this was going to be fun.

Here is chapter two! Sure, Amelia is pretty grumpy and upset, but wouldn't you be if some random person interrupted your day to alter your life? No? Yes? Hard to say.

Afternoon Tea


Tea time was always a huge favorite among the entire household, especially with the youngest members. Babes, as we collectively called the group of little Lupes, Humans, Elves, Dragons, Giants, and even a Unicorn, absolutely adored tea time. Spontaneous tea parties were often found under tables, in the play room, closets, cupboards, outside with little picnic blankets, and even under beds. If babes went missing suddenly, the first thing the adults of the house would check for was the number of missing babe-sized tea cups taken from the lower cupboards of the huge kitchen.

With our home on Eska, the babes were free to roam with supervision until bedtime, unless it they had to go to school, of course. Personally, I had no problem with setting up blanket forts for any group of little ones that needed a fort, or bringing them a little basket of snacks to supplement their adventures, as the babes worked up quite an appetite. I tried to organize regular events for all of the babes, to keep them well-entertained and interacted with on a daily basis. But today... I had a new idea for their tea party.

I'd talked to Keiko a few days before, and she was very excited to be asked to help with all the cooking, given that she was still Mama Keiko to many babes of the house, not just her own. Hell, Keiko had practically raised me and the rest of the older Orphans of the house, and then was more than pleased to be invited to continue this role. While Shen tried to watch over everyone and everything, he was a busy Healer, a Body Guard, and General to our King Markeiran, and that's just a few of the things on his list. Today, I'd enlisted a lot of help to surprise many of the busier members of the house, including Shen.

It took me about a week of mostly sleepless nights to fine-tune my plans, but at last the day was here! As an empath, I was prone to getting excited easily, but with more than 65 excited little ones around me that I regularly cared for? I was bouncing...

Something that would probably terrify the average person.... 7'4" of solid muscle bouncing up and down like the babes nearby.

My mate eyed me, trying to hide her giggles as she watched the babes and I get ready to go outside. It took me several minutes and lots of help from my beautiful Gwenhyfar, but together we got sweaters, hats, mits, shoes, and scarves on little ones that needed it, and a stock of hot water bottles, pillows, and blankets for the tinier babes that didn't wear clothing, due to being wee Dragons and Lupes. While the air was fairly nippy, it wasn't unseasonably cold on Eska. Despite this, we were still bound and determined to make sure the babes were dressed well enough to play and enjoy the afternoon tea party.

"Are we all ready?" The blue lips of my mate curved into a warm smile as she surveyed the excited group.

"YES!" The response was a variety of excited yeses, squeaks, chirps, meows, and little howls.

"Alright, line up and then out we go!"

I got the big blue door open, and the babes formed up in paired lines and were ready to march just that fast! We were only a few feet away from the sheltered grove that many had been working on setting up over the last week; colored lanterns hung from the branches, a huge, rectangular fire pit was blazing merrily, pots of steaming liquids and things in pots all along the far end of the pit as they were cooking happily along in the cool autumn air.

I waved to Keiko as she greeted us with a big smile, busy stirring her pots and monitoring the foods on the big picnic blankets nearby, making certain things were ready and waiting for all of our guests to arrive. I smiled as the babes immediately wiggled and divided themselves into working squads, moving about to do what they were assigned instantly.

I really couldn't be prouder of the babes... They were absolutely amazing in their behaviors; polite, patient, gentle, playful, and always wanting to help. The worst "temper tantrum" was just a little bit of stubbornness, and occasionally a warning nip from a little dragon that wasn't pleased with being disturbed or was feeling unwell. Both were extremely rare, and more or less due to a little babe being frightened suddenly.

As I watched the little ones disperse and set to their final tasks, a swell of pride rose within me and I wrapped my arms around my mate, kissing her temple softly as she leaned into my warmth. Purring softly, I snuggled her gently into my body as we waited for the babes to give a thumbs up of approval. With a few minutes to spare, I whispered a promise into my love's ear that made her cheeks blush a bright blue...

But that was for later, not right now.

Within minutes, the babes had gathered to their stations, standing ready to serve their guests. The entire grove was sheltered from the wind by colorful tapestries of forest scenes, something that I'd convinced the King to let out and be used for once in a long time. They were not intrusive or obvious, but rather background scenes that were between trees to break the wind, instead of take away from the beauty of the grove and large picnic.

Guests slowly began to filter in, first a few pairs, and then more larger groups of people. Small gasps of surprise, widened eyes, and spikes of shock, awe, and excitement were bountiful. Patients of our hospital and their nurses, healers, and orderlies were brought into the grove, and greeted by the babes of the house. Each pair of guests were assigned a partnered pair of babes  that very politely escorted them to comfortable seating, and then taking orders for what they would like to drink at this tea party. For those that did not prefer tea, ciders, cocoas, mulled juices, and even a coffee or two were available.

More guests arrived, and more little ones went to work welcoming them, and very soon all of our guests were seated comfortably with drinks. Joy was evident on every face, and many of them were nearly excited enough to wiggle in their seats as the babes started to perform to entertain them. Some little ones did skits and magic tricks, others did little acrobatics, and some of them even sang while others danced to a merry little tune. I couldn't help but chuckle quietly as the babes were cherry red and tails were curling up as they received massive applause from their audience.

Soon, snack time was ready, and plates were made up very quickly. The babes once again served up their guests, more than happy to be helping and making sure that everyone had exactly what they wanted. Blankets and pillows were passed around while the babes had their refreshments, as the long afternoon of entertainment and excitement was winding down into a cooler evening around the massive fire.

As the sun began to set, several of the big guys that had been in the hospital began to tell stories, one at a time. This was a long-time tradition of our people, and I could see the excitement of the Elven nurses that tended them regularly, so curious to learn anything and everything they could about their new friends, family members, and even mates. Language barriers were non-existent as fire-pictures blazed in the center of the grove to illustrate the stories that were told.

Sitting with my mate comfortably nestled into my side, I purred quietly as I listened to the stories, having missed this kind of thing going on that I vaguely remembered from my own babehood. The happiness and childlike wonder mirrored in the faces of the adults and members of our massive family was enough to warm my heart many times over. Hadrian Broadleaf, our most ancient and revered family member began to tell tales of the stars and Elementals of Old once the younger voices had quieted to listen to his deep, deep voice. As the stories continued on and on, little eyes were blinking more and more, trying to keep awake to listen, and little heads were nodding. Soon, many babes were out like a light, while the stories continued on. I smiled, the babes warm enough under blankets and with pillows in their snuggle-piles. I began watching over as many of the guests, as they were getting quite sleepy too, although many were still bright-eyed and eager for more stories.

The chairs slowly reclined into more comfortable positions, the cushions being re-arranged for better sleeping comfort as their occupants began to fall asleep. The stars were fully lighting the sky as the last pair of eyes closed, my own, with my mate still nestled in my arms. I purred, deeply content as I drifted off to sleep within the warm grove.

The afternoon tea party had been a raging success was the last thought as I faded off to slumber.

We would need to do this again.
