"I slept so long…what has happened since I was gone?"

"A bit of this, a bit of that."

A voice, disembodied at first, but detectable in direction to the shadows. A glint of white teeth and a glance of sharp, green eyes.

"The position of the little caretaker you constellations call the tsar seems to be steadily weakening."

he twitched when hearing the Black Hole somewhere nearby, his lips curling up to bare teeth, but he relaxed his instincts and turned around, seeing the Lord hiding yet in the shadows. He gulped down the nervousness and gave him a cold slight glare

"I have heard that Hannah Smalley wants to travel…but I do not take this as a weakness, nor anything…what do you know that I don’t, Lord Nero. Does this affect her stand for a heir? Does the…" he spat the world almost. "…Tsar taking this ill?"

☫=== “All heirs should take adventures. My son, you know.. Minor? He took his first trip out of our planet after three hundred years. He was just a babe and I asked the Dragon’s court to have him travel in the wild.” Ursa shrugged. “It was a good experience. It showed our court he was ready to even be announced heir. We, my people and elders.. we believe in strength.”

"This is a test more for the Tsar’s heir. The little one will experience everything the universe holds and.. in return, she will gain proper roles. See the lives of the poor, the rich and the abnormal." Ursa followed, eyes trained ahead of her and posture straight. Her coat and furs were removed by servants, and she took a seat on a cushion presented to her. The Eastern Zodiac they were an odd bunch.. but Ursa held no ill will against them.

"The Western Zodiac? We are hard headed and isolated bunch of Lords and Ladies. The few who DO walk around to meet and greet, are far the most bold. Do you not recall Aries? Pisces? Libra? Do not take it personally, Lord Horse." Ursa reached around to grab some black and was pleased to find a small container of honey. A bear’s weakness in food.

"I can say your Zodiac is.. different. I have met the "Sheep" of your world and others in the past. Different doesn’t always mean dislike, only.. confusion and curiosity."

"We are all royals, chosen by our peers, people and family.. should anyone show you disrespect, then they are but an embarrassment to their Constellation."

"It will be a test indeed. I only worry for those times she will be alone in dangerous places…but she will be trained through these situation and while I do not want to interfere with her travels, I will still keep an eye on her, so that if she needs me, I’ll always be just ahead of her to assist…." he gently reached over and chose a black tea with the label ‘honey bee’ on it. He opend the bag and poured in the tea leaves, beginning the ceremony slowly, while talking
"I’m happy that she is this brave to take this journey. Though I doubt that her ‘father’ will allow her too much freedom. He is the Tsar…he worries about many things and his heir is one of the first things along with his…" he grimaced lightly. "…husband and lover. Anyway…they will keep an eye on her as well, another reason why I won’t interfere as much"

He sighed and smiled lightly to the Lady.
"I believe if she is really the heir to the Tsar, she will manage just fine. She has in the past…" he lightly rubbed the back of his neck, right where the mark of the Black Hole was. "…she will do an excellent job."

With that he reached to the back again, a tiny stellar horse had hopped in with another plate. There were honey treats on it, be it pure honey in jars or cookies and treats made of those.
"Take as much as you want, my chefs are preparing more if you need them and I do believe you haven’t tasted honey from my Constellation. Our honey has a bit of a sweetness earthly honey doesn’T have…but if you don’t like it, I’ll fetch you some of the other one I got from Hannah Smalley’s grandmother. Such a nice woman…very helpful and very kind" he sighed and leaned back pouring the tea in two cups and offering her one.

"Do you want something in your tea? Lemon? Milk? Sugar? Honey?"

☫=== She didn’t care if the man was naked, half naked or in full clothing. She was a bear, remember? Nudity meant nothing to her and if she wished, could walk around in the nude if she wished.


But that wasn’t Lady like. Ursa waved a hand at Stallion, bowing at him in greeting before speaking.

"Tea will be fine, Lord. You’ve lost weight though. You were not so skinny in the last years I saw you. Why have I come.. ? Well, I had thought you should know.. the Tsar is letting his little heir out and about soon. I was given word of the cosmic winds, of course. My constellation is always snooping where it shouldn’t, really."

He huffed and arched a brow. This woman was really not what some would expect a lady, but Stallion enjoyed her company. She was blunt, but she was honest and that was the most he liked about her. Honesty. He didn’T get that much from some people, mostly they lie and scheme…

"Ah…blunt as ever, milady…" he said and brushed over his robes, turning around and leading her to one of the other rooms, while listening to her, signaled by his ears that twitched. Only when she mentioned Hannah…he hesitated on the door

"Ah…the little Tsarina wants to go out…that’s good. She has to learn some things about the universe…and she is old enough" he said softly, opening the door and leading her in. The room was round and in the middle was a table with the teapot and his tea collection box. The rest was stuffed with cushions and cloth, an hooka in the back, if needed

"It is nice of you to tell me this, Lady Ursa. It’s not often that I get visitors from other systems, even more not from you…The Western Zodiac doesn’T much care about mine…what tea do you like? Just choose out of the box, I’m sure there will be one right for you" he said with a smile, while picking up a plate from behind him, full of cookies, tiny snacks and other finger foods.

☫=== “It’s been a long time, Lord Horse.”

"It has been a very long time…" he said and righted his robe, blushing when realizing that his robe was a bit up because of his tail, quickly pulling it down with a smile of embarrassment.

"It has been too long, milady Ursa! It’s a pleasure to see you again. How can I help you? A cup of tea, perhaps?"

"I slept so long…what has happened since I was gone?"

"I slept so long…what has happened since I was gone?"

As the first chords of the song played, Nero strode forward and immediately claimed control of both the dance and the floor with sheer power of presence, the contrast between light and dark only serving to draw more eyes now that they were in movement.

The black hole didn’t dance often, but when there was a worthy partner he never disappointed. And now he’d decided to give the people something to remember, though rather guiding their attention more to his dance partner. Black Holes may be at the centre, but the purpose of those around was to gather the attention.

Stallion’s eyes widend and he let himself be dragged onto the stage, into the song and into his role. He was like an angel, white and serene, his hair gently pushed out of the tight bun and fanned out on his back, the wings move and bob as he was lead on the dance. The control the black hole had on him was strange, normally he was the one that leads…

Though this time it was different. He wanted him to take lead, to be the one that pushes him away and back again, to give him those gazes and make them the center of all attention

If this feels like to be ruled by a Black Hole, Stallion didn’t mind it half as much as he did a few moments ago. With a pleased shudder he felt the stares on his back as he was pushed once again away, his dress moving wonderfully from side to side, sometimes like wings would do and his eyes were half closed in the joy and rush of this dance.

"You’re a very good dancer, Lord Nero" he murmured

He huffed, smiling lightly.

"I love to act, Lord Nero. My whole life was an act. Be it to mask the cruelty of the ones that wanted to hurt me, or the cruelty that I faced, I always put on a mask to shield myself off from those things…and a dance like this is a performance like no other. Have you ever seen really sad faces up there? it’s because of the glamour"

He shook his head. “Fae use this to hide their true identity. Glamour is what keeps us going, because one of us always plays a false game to regain or to keep power. Charm is also one” he looked back to the black hole

"I want to dance…but it will be like stepping onto a stage that I am not prepared for."

An interesting point of view, and very true. Even he was acting, in a way, wearing this shape in order to mingle and affect things when all he ever needed to do was remain himself in his core, and not do anything else.

Acting and playing the game were few things that made it worth it to bother.

"Then it would be amusing to do something no one else is prepared to expect either, I believe."

Nero chuckled.

"Dance with me, my lordling."

He looked at him a bit riddled at first, then smiled and nodded, bowing.

"It will be my greatest pleasure, Lord Nero" he said. He knew who this man was and he knew that there was more to him than the mere eye can see, but he was much more of an intelligent and worthy dance partner than anyone in this room (except a few that he held dear in his heart)

He flirred out his robe and righted his skirts, while he walked to the ‘stage’. He felt eyes clinging to him and his rather dar partner, a couple quite to behold. the almost white angelic looking Stallion and the dark, mysterious Nero… he had to hold a chuckle

though when he looked back into those green eyes hidden behind a mask and that slight smile playing on his lips…The Zodiac Lord blushed a little more. He was also one of the only ones bigger than he was..

Masquerade open

Nero tilted his head slightly, observing the little lordling’s mannerisms. Wistfulness, was it? A curious quality, to downplay something one couldn’t have to convince oneself they never wanted it in the first place. Or maybe his interpretation was wrong?

"You sound like you crave to join them, lordling."

There was some amusement in Nero’s voice. Now, how much of a scandal would it be considered for them to share a dance? If they would. The Celestial beings around would probably not even notice, too focused on their own vices, but the thought of giving them the possibility was tempting.

He huffed, smiling lightly.

"I love to act, Lord Nero. My whole life was an act. Be it to mask the cruelty of the ones that wanted to hurt me, or the cruelty that I faced, I always put on a mask to shield myself off from those things…and a dance like this is a performance like no other.
