The large, 10-bedroom mansion owned by the Swiftblade family. The estate was acquired with the wealth from Thomas Swiftblade’s weaponry business and Yasmine Swiftblade’s bakery. Swiftblade Weapons provides weaponry to the entire kingdom’s army with the weapons it needs to go into battle. While the Swiftblade Sweets provides tons of goodies to customers from all over the kingdom. The estate has been in a state of disrepair since Thomas and Yasmine were killed by an orc. Jerold Swiftblade has since taken possession of the property, but in his old age he is unable to maintain the property very well.

James listened and nodded. He felt so out of the loop with Luther. He wished his brother had been doing better, honestly. It wasn't like he was the one abusing people. James laughed a bit, "Uncle Q is the leader of the gang on the island. The run a tight ship and me being there is going to stir up some problems... or it may... should I say. The black market is one thing, but the whole trafficking is a bit of a sore spot and I had closed that side down. Refuse to be in that business anymore, but it is a trust thing since my father worked with some of the guys that work for him now." He said before kissing Erorn back and smiled. "I am glad you are wanting this... I know... that it wasn't something we had discussed since I hadn't planned on coming back." He said and stood up, kissing the top of his head before smiling.

"We should eat. The sun is going down which only means I literally had nothing since this morning." He said and gently took him off the desk and set him down before going to the kitchen and whipping something up and placing it in the oven. "So... baby names... bbbaabbbyyyy names... what to pick?" He sighed. James never planned on having a family, well until some months ago, but here he was and now he had to actually be a father. "For a son... Westly and a girl... Onnie. What kind of names are those you might ask, I don't have an answer but they seem cute." He said and went to kiss Erorn when he stopped. He could feel it... the connection and then second later he felt anger and hurt and depression. James hands were shaking and he backed up. "L-Luther..." He whispered.

Erorn wasn't exactly sure what was happening until James whispered Luther's name.

"You can feel him? Your connection is back?" Erorn was concerned because the look on James' face had so dramatically changed. He saw this as an opportunity. It was a chance for James to prove that he had changed, that even with Luther's emotions, James was in control. He moved closer instead of backing away. He took his hands and pulled him closer.

"It's okay, babe, you got this. You're in control and you won't hurt me. I'm here for you and we'll ride this out together."

Erorn wrapped his arms around James' waist and held him tight. He wasn't going to let him fail, even if it wasn't a test.

James nodded when Erorn asked if his connection was back. His hands gently patted his head when he got hugged. "It's fine... I am... fine. Just... it was like getting punched in the gut. He is really hurting and I have no idea what the hell happened... but there is a familiar feeling and I know he fucked up something... I just don't know what that is." He said before moving away from Erorn and sitting. "It is like... I would feel with Garnet after we... I did things to her." He said softly.

"Holy shit, did he...?" Erorn couldn't finish the sentence. Even Luther couldn't be that big of a hypocrite. Could he?

"I'm glad you got your connection back, but I wish it was under better circumstances. I think we should take this as a sign that we need to get out there as soon as possible. Luther is going to need some support. I won't turn my back on him either, but I really hope he didn't do what I think he may have done. He said something about trying to take her virginity and wanting kids but she didn't. If he got upset and angry... if she were in the path of his rage... if he's acting like you guys did with your clients, there's no telling what he may have done. " Erorn thought back to when he had first been kidnapped and when he had first fell in love with James how he got physical with his clients when it was clear that he had fallen too and he was trying to bury himself in his "work" so he didn't have to deal with them. If Luther was still pissed about the gold digger and wasn't escorting anymore, he may have gone too far really easily.

James shook his head, "I don't know... I just know he feels like shit and he is depressed. Maybe you can ask him? If he reconnected with me then he would maybe tell you? Tell him I am worried about him. I don't think he would force anything. He might have been rough with her, but if she said no... he would have stopped. I am sure. Luther isn't... he isn't me." James said and looked away. He tried sending calming feelings to him. It was clear to him that he hated himself and that he was disgusted, but he didn't tell Erorn that.

Erorn could tell that James was getting down on himself and that was something Erorn hated. He pulled a chair over and sat James in it so he could be at eye level.

"You aren't that person anymore either, James. If you were, there's no way Garnet would let you see your child. I know it's hard, but you need to put that in your past. You've learned from it and now it's time to move on. You are a good person and all this feeling disgusted with your past isn't going to help Luther right now. I'll try to get in touch with him, but if he's feeling like this he may not want me in his head right now. Just relax and keep sending him positive feelings."

Erorn grabbed another chair and closed his eyes. He found it easier to focus and hoped it would prevent a headache.

Luther, are you okay? What just happened, James just got his connection back and he felt some things that he hadn't felt since he was with Garnet and did... what he did. We're worried about you, he says you feel like shit and you're depressed. Please tell me you didn't do something you're gonna regret. Erorn was on the verge of tears thinking there was nothing he could do to help him from here.

James nodded and he tried, really hard, to be positive. He sent happy ones first, since he was so happy he could feel his brother again. He never wanted to lose that connection in the first place and when it did he was so damn scared. He felt hallow for a while. But what could he feel to send him if he did do something stupid like he did? So he just sent happy ones instead. Luther was going to have to learn to deal with his guilt like he had to.

Luther blinked, he had stripped his bed of its blood stained sheets and laid down. He heard Erorn once more and sighed. It was bound to happen when he accidentally let his connection be reconnected with James. I think so...probably not. James keeps sending me happy feelings and being happy right now is the wrong thing to be feeling right now. Is James high He had asked before shaken his head. I took her virginity tonight... we got into this argument that turned me on and... I just took it. She didn't say no and even begged for more... but... it wasn't how I wanted to do it and the after I told her to take her stuff and go. She looked so happy after until I told her to get out of my house. He was getting angry at himself and James growled. We didn't use protection either and I want to go give her that stupid after pill, but I can't talk to her. I have a feeling if I go I would end up hurting her stupid brother and making her really hate me. You... you can't get pregnant when you first lose your virginity right? he asked.

Well he didn't exactly know what all was happening and I told him to be positive. Didn't we just talk about this? You were supposed to talk to her, and while I'm glad that it was consensual, this is the exact opposite of what you should have done. Erorn scolded,his brow scrunching up. He took a deep breath before trying to calm himself.

Look, don't go chasing after her if you think you're going to hurt anyone. Sorry for blowing up at you, but you scared me when James felt like he did. I'll tell him to back off the happiness. But how the hell should I know if a woman can get pregnant on the first time? I mean it could be possible if she's started having her period. I assume she's not underage. At any rate, as long as you didn't hurt her physically, you're fine. Break-ups are hard and it's normal to feel like the bad guy when you're the one doing the breaking. If she's really a gold digger you're doing the right thing, but there's no question that break-up sex makes things more complicated. I suggest you get someone close to her to get her to take the pill. You're not the asshole in this situation, you just got carried away. Just try to focus on the positive things until we get there. You'll do fine, but you shouldn't be too mad at yourself, you didn't hurt her, you didn't do it against her will, you just did it for the wrong reasons. You just wanted her and she probably thought that you wouldn't break up with her if she put out. I wish there was more I could do to help you. Erorn was rambling again. He stopped to give Luther a chance to think.

Luther sighed and listened to Erorn speak. He wasn't wrong except... he couldn't face people right now, especially the ones that were close to her. He just hoped she had talked to someone that did know of it and gave it to her at the appropriate time. When he asked how he would know if a woman could get pregnant during her first time of having sex he laughed. Totally forgetting he liked men and only men. If Garnet had a girl he would enjoy watching Erorn take care of her. It would be the best.

By the look on her face he knew she thought that is she took it he would stay with her and that was another reason he just wanted to die and he thought about the edge of the island and how the air felt around him.

James screamed no and stood up, throwing the chair behind him as he stood. "He... he is suicidal, Erorn." James said in a panic and for the first time in a while he cried. He was frustrated and terrified that he would really lose his brother.

You are right... she did think that. I saw it in her face. And then I tried to stop myself, but I wanted her and couldn't stop. I let my body take over. Anyway I have to go... sorry about everything. He said.

Don't you fucking do it! Erorn screamed in his mind at Luther. Even before James had freaked out, Erorn got a brain splitting headache followed by a vision of Luther at the edge of the island jumping off. The vision wasn't from anywhere near Luther though, it was from the ground.

"James help me!" He said sternly as he rushed outside. He never got the visions without enough time to do something about them, but it was always just barely enough. He kept mentally shouting at Luther to stop, though he knew that he was probably trying to block him out already, but he thought it could buy him some time.

After rushing outside he quickly threw everything out of the wagon and threw the hay for the horses into it. James followed suit but it was clear he didn't know what Erorn was doing.

"My vision wasn't from the island. Arggh!" The pain in his head was killing him as he worked. "It was from ground level. There's no way we can get to him on the Island, but maybe we can catch him when he jumps. I saw it happen in the woods by the lake we went camping at. That's where he's gonna jump." Erorn pulled James up into the wagon before he had a chance to respond and cracked the reigns as hard as he could to get the horses going at full speed. Time was always a factor in these visions as was precision.

He did his best to drive the horses to the spot he saw in his vision where Luther landed, but the pain was blinding. They got there, and parked the wagon exactly where he saw Luther land and Erorn looked up. From this this angle He couldn't get much of a view past the edge of the island all they could do now is wait and hope that Erorn's mental screaming could get him away from the edge.

Luther had cut off everything from them again after Erorn screamed at him not to fucking do it, but he was going to fucking do it anyway. He had made him way to his spot and stood there for a while. He let everything play in his mind. The break ups, the fuck ups, and the reason James had been the way he was with Garnet. He wouldn't be pregnant right now if he hadn't be connected to James. Luther wasn't a good guy, not by a long shot. He just thought he was because he was subconsciously pushing it off onto James.

Rylie had come back home to a note that said everything Luther had was now his and that he was going to inherit the house and money because they were family and he didn't want his family on the streets. It took a second for Rylie to understand what the fuck was going on but when he did he bolted out of the house. He hoped he got there on time and that Luther had backed out or just got there. He never ran so fast and when he finally made it he saw Luther go to step off the island. Rylie hooked his arm around Luther and threw him back.

"What the fuck is wrong with you?! Why... why would you do this? WHY WOULD YOU LEAVE ME LIKE THAT?!" He screamed.

It took Luther a second to understand what was happening. "I... I am not the good guy I thought I was. James... James is... everything he did was because of me." He said, tearing up.

Rylie shook his head, "Just because you have a connection with James emotionally doesn't mean shit. You two are your own people. You two have your own choices. He didn't have to do that shit to Garnet. You did nothing like that to anyone..." He said and trialed off.

"I fucked, Barynn... I took her virginity, Rylie. She can't get that back. I can't give that back to her. I wasn't rough and... mean about it. I never wanted to do that to her. I wanted her first time to be something she could look back and be happy about." He said.

Rylie ran his hand over his mouth, "You... you actually... she probably fucking wanted it. Did she say no?" He asked and Luther shook his head no. "She begged me not to stop." He said.

Rylie laughed, "fucking ridiculous... I can't believe I am telling my boss this, but you are on watch. I can't be at the ranch and be worrying about you." He said and dragged his ass up and to the house.

James gasped, "He is fine... he isn't going to jump... I can... he feels embarrassed, but still depressed." He said and laid back in the hay. "Fucking asshole." He said.

Erorn's head still hadn't let up on the pain. But hearing Jame's words made him feel a little better. He fell back onto the hay next to him and laid his head on Jame's chest. His head felt like it was going to explode as they looked at the sky. He smiled through his pain as it slowly faded away.

"Don't be too mad at him. He's frustrated and confused and depressed. When he wasn't connected to you I was able to help you become a better person, but things went to shit for him. I think I get why he's feeling like this. He thinks that he's the bad guy that he made you worse through your connection just because he had some shitty luck right after you guys cut the link." He sighed. He wanted to check in with Luther, but he honestly didn't know what to say to him or if he would even be willing to hear him right now. There was also the pain in his head still drilling right behind his eyes.

He listened to James' heartbeat as a means of calming himself.

James held Erorn close and ran his fingers through his hair before sighing. "Yeah I understand that, but it doesn't make me feel any better that he done this shit in the first place. Was this because of some stupid girl? Please don't tell me it is because of a stupid girl that he feels this way." He sighed and looked up at the stars and the islands. He wondered what it would be like with them living up there and Garnet. She was so angry and scared... had she really changed in the months that had passed. He thought about how she looked with a pregnant belly and smiled a bit, though he missed it growing. James sat up. "You stay laying. We are going home." He said softly before getting the carriage to move.

Erorn was sure it had to do with more than just the girl. She was just the straw that broke the camel's back. He did as James said when he said to stay laying down. He stared at the stars and it wasn't long before he passed out. His head had finally stopped aching and he was exhausted from all the mental link and the vision had taken out of him. Something about the way James said they were going home sounded a little odd, but he didn't think too much about it before he was dreaming. It was a nice dream. They were on the island and it was as though there had never been an issue between any of them. James was playing with his son again and this time Luther was there too. Erorn was standing next to Garnet and she smiled at him.

"You're a lucky man." She said as the dream faded away.
