When all the light has been taken from you
OOC: Here, have a Silas with Twila in tow. Twila looks like this but with pinkish eyes: Here. +300 words.
In a way, it was hard to believe how old and how big Twila was getting. It had seemed almost like yesterday that he had given her up to Elphaba for her own protection from the cruel woman that had taken his other children away. He was well aware that none of them would ever be able to be his' or have them as a part of his life in more than just the usual servant to ranked member interaction, but how happy he would have been to see all three of the pups grown up...
And not to have seen Julia go through the heartbreak that she had when she lost two of her children. No doubt it was harder on her than it was on him.
The child followed along at his side, padding a bit ahead of him. Now that she was past the age of being able to speak, it was her desire to drag him along wherever she wanted to go. A bit rash in nature, but he complied to her request none the less. Even to a child, he was still bound to do as she wanted so long as it did not bring her into any danger.
As the pair padded along, it was Twila who spotted her first, the brown woman moving through the lines of the trees, dancing along with the fog at her side. As his golden eyes moved up, spotting her too. He recalled the first time he had come across Brocade, the female having tagged along with him. Since news of the man's house burning down had spread, he had been prepared for some manual labor should the need arise where he was working to rebuild his burnt home. Even so, she had been the one to read for the male since he could not do so.
The two approached her, Silas moving along is back legs as his hands moved up to sign, "Silas knows you." No doubt she would have some confusion, so the child chimed in, "He says he knows you." With a deaf mother and a mute father, it only made sense that the pup be able to learn sign language along with her own speaking and writing. At least it made for translating the mute servant easier.
