Kai had spent more time over the past two days baking than was really wise- but even knowing that she ought to muster for the star sapphires, actually do her new job, she was missing home, and making a haupia cake brought her back to the luaus she used to have with her family. She had already made more haupia than she and her sister could reasonably consume in the period of time they had that it would be good for.

So instead, the inhuman had started turning the excess into thank you desserts. And then she had started branching out to a whole pile of pineapple and coconut but otherwise completely unrelated desserts. By the time she had finished, she wasn't even pretending to try and use up more of the haupia anymore. Blowing her hair out of her face, she carried one of the earlier desserts with her towards a place that was more than a little familiar. The small not Tony Stark had seemed to her like a cake person- and she hoped that she was right, or otherwise the unnecessarily pink fluffy thing she was carrying may not be received well.

Finally she reached the door she was looking for- for once grateful that she could navigate Stark's security system. She had patched variants enough times. Besides all she had to do was flash her S.I. badge and the A.I. was letting her go where she pleased so long as there was nothing private or sensitive inside. Without thinking, she went to kick the door before Kai remembered that whoops that might break the fixture in question.

It was strange to see how becoming a seventh stronger had made it so much harder to judge the strength she needed to use again. Instead, her ring glowed pink before a small matching hand knocked softly on the door. When it opened, she smiled. "Hi, I'm Kai. I wanted to thank you for your assistance in rescuing me the other day- and I may have gone a little dessert crazy. I hope you like coconut, and cake."

It had been a very, very strange week. On retrospect, it was unique, to realize that the person you’d been pining over (yes, pining, he had to admit what it was even if he hated the way it made feel to acknowledge it) loved you back. It was even less normal, and perhaps not very helpful to your mental state to also realize that even if you both loved each other, things weren’t going to change from how they were.

And he couldn’t even claim it was someone else in the way. No, Safi might love him, but he didn’t want to be with him. And that was that.

So. Strange week. Chris had stretched his magical muscles on the rescue mission to save his sister. A mission that had, in some respects, been an amazing success, and in other ways had been a complete failure. They had freed the captive ladies from their shackles, but Belle wasn’t home. Worse than that, Christian had no way of knowing where Belle was, or if she was okay, or when she might return, if at all.

He was worried sick. Enough that he had begun to read everything he could find on spells and rituals that were meant to locate a person, or discern their health. He prayed each and every night (To Gabriel, always starting out by telling the angel that he hoped that Gabriel was having a nice evening and that he was sorry if he was bothering him, but this was important because Belle could be in danger, or in trouble or even hurt!) and then, once he had prayed, he healed Belle’s doll and sent her as much extra energy as he could to make sure that if nothing else, she made it through the night. He did the same in the morning when he could, too. In short Christian was doing everything in his power to help his sister, wherever she was, whatever she was doing.

The knock on the door had him standing up abruptly and heading to answer it, blinking at the young woman who stood on the other side. Oh, he recognized her; she was one of the ladies who had been taken and subsequently found and rescued on that terrible, dying world. “Um, hi.” Coconut and cake? Chris blinked, head tilting slightly as he looked at her, “I…” Offering Kai a small smile, he shrugged, “Would you like to come in? You didn’t have to bring anything. I mean, not that I’m going to turn down a perfectly good cake...as long as it’s not covered in fondant...but you didn’t really need to. I was happy to be able to help.” He flushed just slightly, averting his eyes, “I mostly went because my sister was taken… Belle? I’m sorry.”

Kai smiled easily at the other man- who seemed rather confused by her presence. She nodded her gratitude as she came in with her cake box, finding a table to set it on and swing open the lid. "Hope you don't mind pink." She said with a laugh as the fluffy confection came into view. "But I can guarantee there is no fondant on it. Fondant is for people who want to ruin the flavour of their cake with a layer of pure sugar." Kai replied, her nose wrinkling at the thought.

"No this is a Haupia cake- a sort of Hawaiian Coconut Montblanc- and the cake part is pretty self explanatory." She explained with a smile and a nod at the item in question. "And I figured you had your own reasons for helping- but it doesn't change that you did, and I appreciate that."

Standing awkwardly, uncertain what to do now that she had unloaded her delivery, Kai shuffled slightly on the spot. "So. Um. Thank you. And I know I didn't need to bring anything but I just started baking... And well. Things went downhill from there and if I don't give the goodies away, my sister is going to stop eating anything healthy- and despite her protesting, she is still growing and who even knows what nutrients a ghost needs but I don't think a lack of bones should really stop concerns about calcium especially if you can have bones if you want and-"

Kai stopped herself abruptly, taking a deep breath and forcing her smile to return. "Sorry, I tend to ramble. Anyways. Needed to get the baked goods out of my house, so two birds, one stone. I was also really glad to see you come for your sister since she didn't seem to think anyone would come for her."

Well yeah, Christian was confused to see Kai here. Holding a cake box. Looking rather chipper, if he did say so himself, which he didn’t, actually say. Still, most of the time he met people...elsewhere. Not here. Not at Tony’s mansion. Meeting up at the Wandering Moon or the Green Goddess, or at any of the many other places where people could meet on ‘neutral’ ground. Someone coming to see him here was… Unheard of.

Well, unless they lived here.

Kai’s words about fondant earned her a giant, warm smile from the man and he actually leaned in and hugged her, “You,” he told her fondly, “Are great. Please, come in.” Anyone who disliked fondant was a friend of Christian’s. He loathed the stuff; it ruined a good cake. He grinned when she explained Haupia, nodding, “I know what it is. I’ve never had it, but I know about it.” The idea of trying it made him hungry; there was never too much cake, and he was never too full for cake. Or pie. Especially if Belle had made the pie… “I mean… Don’t get me wrong, I felt badly for you and Ms. Romanov for getting, um, taken. But…” he shrugged a little bit, “Belle’s my family.” And he would never have been able to walk away without doing everything in his power to help free her.

She really hadn’t needed to bring anything. She hadn’t needed to even say thank you. Christian had been happy to see their little rescue group be able to free all three of the women who had disappeared after drawing from the deck. But he also understood making too much food and needed to get the extra to someone else who could eat it, too. How many times had he snuck into Tony’s kitchen here in Hub to cook for him and Steve and Wanda because he knew that at least here the food would get eaten? (Too many times, always in the middle of the night, and he always made enough food to feed an army. Or Steve.)

Motioning toward a chair, Chris invited Kai to sit, “Please, sit down. We could have a piece of this, if you’d like, or since you’ve said you have too many sweets at home, we could have a cup of tea or coffee and just talk?” He wasn’t eager to go back to being alone, and a new person was definitely welcome to stay and chat for a while…

The mention of Belle thinking that Christian wouldn’t come for her, though… That earned Kai a blink and a very, very hurt look. Of course Chris would follow after Belle to bring her back to safety. Why would she think otherwise at all?? “She… She said that? That she didn’t think I’d come for her?” How could Belle not know he’d come? That he would move heaven and earth to get to her, to make sure she got home? “Was that why she didn’t come home?” His voice nearly broke on the last word, but he managed to choke it out nonetheless.

Kai laughed at the hug, even though her arms were tied up with holding the cake- she still offered him a stone armed hug, taking caution not to squeeze too tightly. His explanation made her smile as well, and she couldn't help the chuckle she let out. "It's certainly alright Chris. I have two sisters- I would move the world for them. I expected you'd feel the same way." She snorted with a thought as she followed him in. "Hell, I'm sort of maybe the legal guardian for one of them because of reasons- and I swear I spend all of my not otherwise occupied time worried about her. I'm so terrified that I don't do well enough- Ancestors it's nerve wracking, and that's when I know that she isn't in danger."

She shook her head lightly to force her mind free of the worries it was falling into. Kai took the offered seat with a thankful nod of her head. "Oh I may not have wanted my sister to have any more, but I am all for a slice of Cake. Especially if said cake comes with a cup of coffee and good company." She replied with a wicked grin- the real part she was wanting was coffee, but lately she had the strangest fondness for cake. Like it meant something more or something about as ridiculous as that.

Kai waved her hands in defense as she stumbled over her words to correct herself. "No no no! I just think she may have just forgotten how useful you were in a fight, and also maybe didn't know that you knew she was in trouble? I mean of all three of us, I was the only one who was confident that someone was coming to rescue us, and that's because my maybe sort of boyfriend came to the shop to draw cards with me. The other two went alone." She did wrinkle her nose slightly in answer to the question. "Honestly- I don't really know. I was more than a little passed out when I was brought back- I was having a hard time standing on my own. Once I was confident that Jake was okay, I kind of stopped recognizing what was going on?"

Kai grinned comfortingly. "But if it makes you feel better, the short period of time in which I've met your sister, she held her own courage wise with two people who willingly face death often? So I'm sure she can handle whatever she gets herself into."

Once Kai had returned his hug. Chris drew back, offering quietly to take the pastry from her. It wasn't that he wouldn't have gone along with the rescue group to get the women who had disappeared if his sister hadn't been among them, but he knew that the truth was that he had gone to rescue those women with rescuing Belle as his driving motivation. "Belle... Is my whole family." He didn't have anyone else. Safi came the closest, but Chris didn't feel familial about the other man. "But we're the same age, so..."

Giving Kai a grin, Chris pulled out two plates from the cabinet, two forks, and a large knife to cut the cake with, bringing them all to the table. Then it was just a matter of cutting and serving them each apiece. when Kai mentioned coffee, Chris nodded and bounced over to the counter, setting the machine to make a cup for her, and once it finished he made a similar cup for himself. Cake and coffee. "Good idea. l might not have considered coffee. Just a glass of milk. Coffee is a better idea, though."

Belle had forgotten how useful he was in a fight? Christian blinked at Kai, "I'm not useful in a fight. After, maybe. I can help sometimes, depending on the situation." His voice trailed off slightly, "I'm not useful like Safi or Belle are, though."

Kai's smile softened at the tone the man took, her mind going back to easy days on the beach with her family. "Diane isn't my whole family... But at the same time, she's all I can have." Kai started vaguely, before realizing how strange that would sound and hurrying to explain. "I don't know what you know about inhumans, but we're awoken to our abilities through chemical exposure. Diane and I were both transformed- and like anything new and different, we were targeted for it. So, we're all we've got- we can never go back to our family, or else they'll be hunted by association." She offered quietly, surprised with how immediately comfortable she felt with talking to this man. Offering a slightly brighter grin as her pohaku turned to stone spikes along her arms, she added a following comment. "At least Diane and I can defend ourselves."

Kai took the coffee immediately, setting down the forkful of cake she had been about to eat. She hummed in pleasure with the warmth of the cup, and the fragrance wafting from it. "Coffee is always my preferred drink." She mumbled around a sip of the somewhat scalding liquid. Of course, she was four times as resistant to the heat, so she didn't really care, but it did make it harder to taste.

She did nearly drop her drink as she started laughing however, setting it down with more force than necessary. She covered her mouth to try and muffle the giggles, shaking her head. "You and I are remembering that fight very differently. I don't remember much of it, save for you magically lifting the asshole up like a doll into the air, my maybe boyfriend going all fear monster, and your sister summoning an army of ghosts. I'd argue that you were pretty damn useful in that fight."

Chris had no easy days with family. Growing up, every day had been hard. The only family Chris had had was Belle, and once she had been adopted, he'd been alone in the group home. Life had only gotten harder after that. But Chris had little true regret; he had received a good education, always had enough (mostly to eat, and had a bed to sleep in. He'd been warm in the waited, and kept cool enough in the summer. When Kai spoke of Inhuman s. Chris started to shake his head before he blinked," You mean like Black bolt and Lockjaw?" He didn't know very much, but... Hunted? Wow. "That sucks." It wasn’t enough, and his face showed that he knew it wasn’t enough. He nodded slowly when she spoke of defending herself; Chris could defend himself, and he had come around to using his shield spell, even if he didn’t like it, but… “I’m glad.” As much of a pacifist as Chris was, he was glad that Kai and her sister were able to defend themselves. That was good.

Coffee was like life’s blood. It kept you going, made you feel better, and it was warm. Hot. “Well, coffee doesn’t go with everything, but with most it does just fine.” He grinned, settling into the chair next to her, turning it slightly at an angle so he could speak with her more comfortably while still having access to the table to eat the cake and reach his coffee.

Kai’s laughter earned a blink and then a blush from Chris, who turned his eyes down to his plate, toying with the fork in his hands as he waited for Kai to stop laughing. At him. There weren’t a whole lot of things that Chris truly resented, but being laughed at was definitely chief among them. Whatever dark thoughts and dire mood that might have overcome him cleared away immediately when she spoke again, though. She thought he’d been useful? “Well, it wasn’t a powerful spell… Just a trick of magnetic poles… It didn’t hurt him or anything…” Because Christian didn’t hurt people. Not if he could help it. “Belle’s army of ghosts was a lot better than my trick.” He shook his head, “One day, when she comes back, I’m going to have to ask her how she did that… That was… Awesome.”

Kai was thinking wistfully of days spent sneaking out of hula practice to ride the waves- when Chris responded to her comment. Her eyebrows shot up in surprise for a moment before she nodded. "Yeah. Don't know how you know the inhuman royal family- but yes. Same- Er. Sort of same species. I'm the descendant of some inhuman who left Attilan and had a child with a normal human. So- a mutt for lack of a better description."

She gave him a soft smile and patted his hand, grateful for the sympathy. "People are afraid of what they don't understand. One day this will all be history, and the inhumans will have their place amongst regular people. I just have to make it until then." She offered patiently. Kai was kind of used to it- her parents had been accepting, but there were always people who saw her with another girl and made judgements. Or folks in New York who heard her name and assumed they understood what that meant about her. This was just another storm to weather- and if it put only her in danger, she'd be at the forefront of it, waging a war through peaceful protest.

But that wasn't the case so she was in the hub between realities instead. Focusing on the next comment in order to brighten the room again, Kai gasped with mock offence. "How dare you Blaspheme in such a manner!" She cried, a hand clutched to her chest as though warding away evil.

Before the expression cracked from her face and she returned to smiling. "But yes I'm aware Coffee isn't an always drink. Just an often drink." Kai quipped, sipping at her aforementioned liquid.

Kai shook her head in awe. "If that's just a trick of magnetic poles, I'd pay good money to see what you consider serious magic. What it was- was awesome. To the point that I remember it even though I was halfway to passed out by the end of the battle." Smiling at Chris, her clothes melted into a violet bikini top and shorts, at which point she crossed her legs and floated slightly above her seat without thought. "You don't need to hurt someone to help. There are plenty of holds that you can use to incapacitate without doing damage. I'll teach you what I can if you'd like."

The grin that Christian gave Kai was a genuine show of pleasure; it was nice to be right about things, even if it was something small. “In my world, the Inhumans, Avengers, X-Men… They’re comic books.” He gave a small shrug, “I read a lot of them… As a kid…” And an adult, but he wasn’t going to admit that so immediately. He shook his head at Kai’s description of her heritage, “Not a mutt so much as possessing a rich genetic heritage.” It wasn’t sucking up; Chris actually sounded just a little bit wistful. Side effect of being an orphan since before he could remember much.

Truth be told, Kai said that ‘one day’ it would all be history, that Inhumans would be able to live among regular people, but Christian’s own personal experience said that people who were different, even in mundane ways, were treated poorly. People who had very large differences? People who had powers and abilities that other people didn’t? Who maybe knew magic? They were treated even worse. As for sexual preferences… Well, Christian didn’t judge, but plenty of people did. Then again, the whole ‘being with another’ anything thing wasn’t really much of a problem. It wasn’t like he had anyone to be with anywhere.

A cloud of something unhappy, dark, and unwelcome crossed his face, his eyes focusing on the coffee that he’d brought over. It was something to do with his hands and eyes, at least… But it disappeared as he forced it away, shoving the unkind thoughts from his mind. A confession of love didn’t change anything in the end. It apparently took more than love to make a change, at least where Chris was involved.

The statement, even as obviously jesting as it was, earned a surprised blink from Chris. Darker, angry thoughts might have been pushed aside, but it still affected him no matter what he would have liked to claim otherwise. “I’m sorry?” She continued on to agree with him and he gave her a small, unsure smile, “Yes. Often is very true.”

It wasn’t all that often that Chris received a compliment, especially a large one that was about his magic. “I’m… Not sure about awesome,” Safi hadn’t even blinked at it… It hadn’t been enough. He sighed, slumping in his chair. Some girl who knew nothing about magic thought it was cool. And that was pretty great, truth be told, but Kai wasn’t Safi. He did perk up visibly when she mentioned that she might be able to teach him how to fight (holds she called them) without hurting someone. That… That could work! “You really wouldn’t mind?”
