    Corinth enjoyed quiet days, when relatives were out in the town and his work was slow. No special orders, no rambunctious relatives chasing about the house. This kind of peace was scarce since he'd left the island on a work trip. Lucan seemed to be adjusted to life of Manta Carlos, and Xiphium's island store had a good business running for the season, even if it was only for the masquerade at the month's end. It was an uneasy quiet, without a sound from Lucan and the others had all left for the day, with Corinth alone to worry. There was a celebration in the forest all weekend, originally, both children had intended to attend though Lucan had opted out of attending the second day.

    His daughter had become a fine young woman in spite of his terrible parenting, which only made him worry more if he was taking care of Lucan properly. Corinth hadn't the slightest idea what parents really did, but he tried his best. What worried him now, was that Lucan hadn't left his room since the previous evening. Whether it was a bad breakup, or something worse, it wasn't something he had any previous experience with. He brought with him two mugs of tea - as much for his own nerves as it was for Lucan's - knocking on Lucan's door.

    Lucan Abernathy

    He'd been outed, everyone likely knew he was half demon, he didn't really expect people to hate over it, at least not the ones he knew, his anxiety over it dealt more with himself. He hated being halt demon, he wanted that half gone, but that didn't seem like an option, at least not yet.

    Lucan jumped a bit at the knocking on his door, he'd been sitting on his bed reading some books on magic. He knew it was likely Corinth, or perhaps one of the girls here to check on him. Quickly hiding the books he'd vanish and reappear by his door.

    Hesitating just a moment he'd open it, "oh, hey Corinth," he'd say, offering a small smile, "what's up?" Then he'd notice the tea, "oh, thanks, he'd step aside, letting his guardian enter, accepting his cup.

    Corinth was no master of empathy, but the fact that something was bothering Lucan was not well hidden. He frowned, handing one cup to Lucan and sipping on his own. Corinth frowned, sitting at the foot of Lucan's bed.

    "Lucan, listen. I know I am not the finest of father figures, but I am your guardian and I would like to help you, if I can. I'm worried about you."

    Corinth took another sip of his tea, clearly trying to explain himself properly, but trying a little too hard. Lucan would know that such conversations were out of place for Corinth, considering the laissez-faire parenting style he usually held.

    "You haven't said a word since last night. It may not be my business, but it is my responsibility to make sure you're alright. Whatever the problem, I will do everything I can to resolve it."
