Masa smiled up at her and nodded when she asked if she was here to see May. He had to suppress a chuckled when he thought about saying no, that he had really came to see her and steal her away from Uncle Q. It would have been the best but he felt like she would have backed hand him and then he would have to deal with Uncle Q who had been in a mood for a few days. He did some digging and come to find out he was digging on his lady friend. The man didn't seem to take to her being a spy, or so that is what he had overheard his father saying to his mother.

He walked in and took a seat before watching her go. It had been a bit since he was back here, ever since that talk he had with May about Mari and him dealing with his feelings about Naddie, Masa hadn't taken the time to actually come and talk to her and see how she was doing. He looked around and then back at the door before thinking what Naddie was doing.

Nyleria let Masami come in to sit down and then she went upstairs to get Mayelle. She knocked gently on Mayelle's door before opening it and peering inside, seeing Mayelle curled up in bed with a book. "Mayelle, honey, Masami's here," she said softly, and Mayelle nodded. "Okay, tell him I'll be down in a moment," she replied. Nyleria smiled and nodded, closing the door before heading downstairs. "She said she'd be down in a moment. Got her nose in a book, so she's probably just getting to a place where she can stop," she said with a light laugh, knowing Masami would understand all about Mayelle's love of books. "Did you want a drink or something while you wait for her?"

Masa looked up at May's mother and smiled softly, "No thank you." He said softly and looked down at his hands. She had borrowed a few of his books and was glad she was reading them. Some of the ones she picked were his favorite. He was going to have to ask May which book she was reading so he could discuss it with her while they talked. He had planned on taking her out of the house, which may be fine with her mother since he knew she had been cooped up in the house. "I-Is it okay if I dye her hair? It won't be all of it and we could trim it out over time. I really think you might like it..." He said softly.

Nyleria nodded when Masami declined her offer for a drink, gathering up the dishes she'd just finished washing and starting to put them away. She looked over when he started to ask permission to dye Mayelle's hair and she couldn't help but to smile. "Sure, as long as it's what she wants," she replied with a nod. "I saw what you did with Mari's hair and it looked just lovely, sweetie, so I'm sure you'll do a great job," she added. Just then, Mayelle came downstairs, smiling when she saw Masami. "Sorry I took so long, I was just finishing up the chapter I was on," she said to him.

Masa smiled and thanked May's mother before standing when he saw her coming down the stairs. "No problem, I do that to Mari and Naddie all the time. It gets bad when the chapter is long, Naddie tends to find the nearest pillow and beat me with it. It all fun and games until Naddie gets a pillow." He chuckled. "I was thinking we could go get some fresh air and walk to my mom's salon where I could dye your hair. Your mom says it is okay, plus we haven't talked in a bit and I have some cool news." He smiled brightly.

Mayelle laughed a bit when he commented that he did the same to Mari and Nadia all the time and she nodded. "Naddie with a pillow sounds scary," she giggled. She nodded when he said that they could get some fresh air and go dye her hair. "I like that idea," she said to him softly. She was surprised that he'd asked her mother, figuring there was no point right now since her mother probably didn't care what she did, but it was at least nice to know that her mother thought it was okay. She headed to the door and opened it up, nodding for him to come with and curious what his cool news would be. "You two have fun," Nyleria said to them.

Q walked to the small cottage in the woods and stood by the front door. He had been keeping her at arms length since she admitted to being a spy. It was one thing to admit it to him but AFTER she left for so long... It was a mess and a half. If his people found out it could cause a whole lot of trouble. He knocked a firm knock on the door and waited for her to answer.

Nyleria had just been in the kitchen, baking some cookies, when she heard a knock at the door. She set down the bowl of cookie dough and walked over to the door, opening it and smiling as she saw Quentin on the other side. He'd been rather distant for the last little while and she wasn't sure why; she'd decided to just assume it had something to do with his job, but she didn't know for sure. "Hi! Come in," she said softly, opening the door wider and stepping aside so he could come in. "I was just about to put some cookies in the oven. And Mayelle's not here, she's out with her friends," she said softly.

Q walked in and looked down at her, "we need to talk." He said and walked to the kitchen before sitting at the table. He waited till she came over to begin. "I have been looking into your background as a spy and have had to talk to my people. It isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, but it isn't as good as I would like." He said and rubbed his beard. "If you... if you didn't mean any ill tent you would have come to me with that information sooner. No one trusts you, Nyl. Spies... are not something we take lightly and then you left for so long with no communication between that time. I know you said you have written but I have no proof of that to show the guys. You aren't allowed in my home, the main building, anymore. Nor is May. They won't lay a hand on you two, but making them suspicious should be avoided. Of all times, Dol is out of commission since she is pregnant and hiding from the father... either way you were not wise with this information, Nyl." He said, his voice deep and serious.

Nyleria raised an eyebrow when he said they needed to talk, but nodded and shut the door behind him, going over to the table with him. She blinked in surprise when he spoke and her mouth fell open slightly. "You...what?" she asked, momentarily too stunned to respond. She shook her head slightly, frowning. "That's why you've been so distant lately? Because I told you about my role in the tribe and that scared you?" she asked. "Quentin, if I'd known it was relevant I'd have told you sooner. I don't know what exactly you do, but I had no idea it was something that'd make you and your people wary of spies. Besides, I'm fairly certain those days are behind me. If I'm not going back to the tribe then there's not really any work for me anymore," she said, her voice calm and even.

Q looked at her like she was a bit crazy, "because I was scared? No. I kept my distance because I had to make sure not to get more attached to you than I already am. My people's safety comes first. I realized then that I know little to nothing about you and I was stupid enough to out my people at risk. I don't know what you are capable of. I am sure this will get situated out soon, but for now if you go off the islands someone will follow. People are going to be watching you closely. You have to understand they also have families to protect. I run a gang, Nyl... we made a deal to keep the islands safe for importing and exporting goods. It isn't safe and now I have the king of the black market here..." he shook his head. "Once you knew I was in this you should have told me." He said.

Nyleria frowned as she listened to him. "You don't need to worry about what I'm capable of when I'm sitting around at home baking cookies and trying to get my child to not hate me. I came here because of you, because I wanted to be away from my tribe and be here with you. I even brought my daughter here - do you really think I'd have dragged Mayelle all this way if I was spying on your gang? That I'd risk putting my child in harm's way when I could easily have just left her with my parents? I'm glad to know you and your people have so much faith in my parenting skills," she said, clearly hurt. She got up and grabbed the bowl of cookie dough, starting to spoon more cookies on to the tray, just to keep her hands busy so she'd have something else to focus her mind on rather than how hurt she was by what Quentin was saying. "So, what does this mean for us?" she asked after a moment.

Q sat there, soothing his anger that had boiled from the time he had found out. "Good spies do stupid things. I have seen my shit during my training and it isn't something I would put past a spy. I understand you are angry, but you need to understand that this just doesn't look good for you and I am trying my fucking hardest to keep you here." He growled. "I don't know what that means for us. I want to be with you... If I didn't i would have thrown you and May off the islands, but I didn't. I fought against my own damn people, my family, so you can stay. They will back off once they see that you aren't a threat." He said.

Nyleria was silent for a moment. She scooped out the last of the cookie dough from the bowl, but it wasn't quite enough to make an entire cookie. She put the tray in the oven and then went back to the table with the spoon of cookie dough, holding it out to him. "So basically I just sit quietly and keep doing what I'm doing while everything I do is under scrutiny, and then if I'm lucky your people decide to trust me enough to let you keep me?" she asked in a soft voice. "Because if that's the case...then as much as I'm going to hate it, I'll do it. Everything you've given me, everything you've shown me, everything you've done for me has been worth it. You are worth it. If you mean it when you say you want to be with me, if you truly mean it, then I'll do whatever it is that you need." She paused slightly, a small smile coming to her lips. "And hey, maybe eventually someone will figure out that having an elf trained for spy work on your side can be considered an asset," she said in a light, joking voice, hoping to break the tension somewhat.

Q watched her deal with the cookies and when she came back to hold up the spoon full of cookie dough he leaned in wrapped his mouth around the spoon, watching her the whole time he did so, and slid the rest off before eating it. He made an 'mmm' nose before listening to her question. He sighed, "you are free to do as you wish, if they see you mean you no harm then yes you get to keep me or rather I get to keep you." He said before listening to the rest she had to say. He smiled softly, he wanted nothing more than to be with her, but he understood his people's concerns. They trusted him enough to let him show them that she means no harm. He gently grabbed her wrist and drew her in, "We have a spy, but he isn't an elf... so I GUESS we could use an ELF spy." He chuckled and made her sit on his lap before kissing her softly. "I am sorry you have to go through this... but it is a must for people like me." He said softly.

Nyleria smiled as she watched him eat the cookie dough, figuring it best not to mention right now how sexy she found it. She put the spoon away while he spoke, smiling a bit when he commented that he'd get to keep her. "Then I'll be good and you'll get to keep me. I'll be all yours," she said, and giggled as he grabbed her wrist and pulled her in. She kissed him back softly, smiling when it was over and resting her hand gently on his cheek. "If you only have one spy and he's a he then it turns out you're also needing a female spy. We're surprisingly versatile. If you ever need my skill set, you know where to find me. I had planned to leave all that behind me when I left the tribe. As good at it as I am, it was never what I wanted to do. I just wanted to have more babies," she said with a sigh.

Q kissed her neck and sighed, "Then you won't have to, I can find a new one. Dol was our last spy, but... then she became known and well we lost a female part elf spy. Either way, I trust you... it just... it has been hard when you have islands to protect and the one person you actually want to love is... well a spy for a tribe." He said softly before running his thumb over her bottom lip. "But you have yet to show us any harm and you have brought your daughter who could have been used as leverage or it could not have been your child at all, but after what happened when May caught us well... I know that she is indeed yours. I want to be with you, Nyl. Prove to them you can be trusted... mmm maybe you can help the community some how and get to know the people in the gang. Your daughter already has made friends with two kids from some of the most dangerous men in the group." He chuckled.

Nyleria smiled as she listened to him, keeping her hand rested gently on his cheek. She raised an eyebrow when he commented that Mayelle could very well have not been her child and she smirked. "I can't deny that child, silly. She looks just like me - but with her father's eyes, and those curls... Other than that, though, she's my tiny twin," she said softly. She paused, glancing towards the oven and then back at him. "Would friendly gifts of cookies help?" she asked softly, smiling a bit before glancing down. There was one thing he'd said that was sticking with her rather poignantly and she looked back up at him after a moment of deliberating. "You want to love me?" she asked in a soft voice, smiling.

Q nodded, "that is true, she is your mini twin." He chuckled before looking over at the oven. "I mean... if I ate one and they saw that I wasn't dying they would. Though Dol would be pissed if I died and left her the gang while she is trying to grow a baby. Ahh I am actually supposed to be finding a family for that little bundle of joy right now, but... I had to talk to you first." He said softly as he watched her look down and then back up at him. When she asked if he wanted to love her he smiled, "I want to love you till I can't love you anymore." He said softly and cupped her face. "I want you to be smothered in my love. You understand? I want to love you like you should have been the first time around." He said and leaned his forehead on hers. "Mmm but maybe after that cookie." He joked with a devilish smirk.

Nyleria raised an eyebrow slightly at his comment about finding a family for Dol's little bundle of joy. "You mean there's a free baby up for grabs and you didn't immediately think of your friendly local woman with the broken baby-maker?" she asked with a giggle, and she smiled when he told her how he wanted to love her. She slid her arms gently around her neck as he rested his forehead against hers. "I feel the same way. I want to love you like I've never loved anyone before. I mean...I love my children, but that's a different kind of love. The kind of love I want to feel for you is something I've never, ever felt before," she said softly. She smirked a bit when he said that it could wait until after the cookie. "Then it sounds like you've still got another seven to nine minutes left to wait," she murmured.

Q sighed deeply, "I would have taken Dol's baby in a heartbeat if she would have let it stayed on the island, but she doesn't want that. She says she wouldn't be able to stand watching someone else raise her baby in front of her. So... but from what I hear her little cousin has a different plan and is making sure Dol keeps that baby and goes back to the baby's father. It is a whole mess in a half, but I am letting her cousin run that show. I really want Dol to keep that baby, she wants to, but she claims the father doesn't want kids. Yet he wants this one? I don't know with these damn kids these days." He said before his eyes went big. "Shit... I can barely get to one room to the other in seven to nine minutes." He joked and tickled her sides. "Mmm, you beautiful woman." He said softly.

Nyleria smiled a bit when he told her that Dol didn't want to watch someone else raise her baby in front of her and she nodded. "I can understand that...the poor girl. She shouldn't let the father influence her decisions, though. If she wants to keep her baby then she should. If he doesn't want it then fine. He doesn't have to be a part of its life. The most important thing about being a parent is always putting your children first," she said softly. "Those were the only times I was ever able to stand up to my husband, was when it involved the kids. Obviously I got shit for it later...but the important thing was that they had to come before him. They always did," she continued. She giggled a bit at his comment about not being able to get from one room to the other in seven to nine minutes and she erupted in giggles when he tickled her. "I can think of a few ways to kill seven to nine minutes," she said with a smirk.

Q sighed, "Yeah, well she hasn't loved a man like she loves this one and from what I know he wants the baby, but he doesn't know where she is. Something about Dol needing to be talked out of her crazy thinking. There is more to the story that I can't share." When she said that she could think of a few ways to kill seven to nine minutes he raised an eyebrow and looked at her, "Show me or all of that is lies, little missy." He said and booped her nose.

Nyleria raised an eyebrow slightly, but nodded. "Well...hopefully they get it straightened out. It'd be horrible for the poor girl to miss out on getting to be with her baby just because of some man..." She sighed, shaking her head a bit. When he told her to show him how she thought to kill seven to nine minutes, she giggled softly. "Well, here's one way," she murmured, tightening her grip on his neck and leaning up to kiss him gently, one hand entwining itself gently in his hair.
