Eva and Caleb The sound of little sneakers, and the laughter of a child disturbed whatever was going on in he bar. A little blonde boy ran into the bar, a woman behind him, smiling. She wore a backpack on her back, and her short brown hair was bouncing around her head. She sat down at the bar, one leg crossed over the other.

"Caleb!" she said sweetly and held out her hands. The little boy rushed up to her and hopped up onto her lap. Eva glanced around the room, surveying each and every person as they sat there.

Eva and Caleb The door swung open, and whatever noise was going on in the bar was disrupted by a pair of tiny sneakers, and the laughter of a young child. In the door ran a little blonde boy, in a pair of little jeans and a little flannel shirt. His blonde hair bounced around his face as he ran into the room, and he began to look to and from each person in the bar.

Not far behind him came his mother, although they didn't look exactly alike. Eva had dark brown hair, short, that rested at her shoulders. She wore a black tank top and jeans, boots on her feet and a backpacker's backpack on her back. Her dark green eyes differed from Caleb's, which were bright blue, but they changed color which she found interesting. Eva's slim body walked over to the bar, and dropped the backpack tiredly under the bar by the stools, before she turned herself back around to look for her little boy.

She saw him, standing at the base of a man who looked very much like a snake. Snake-man. Caleb's wide blue eyes were staring at the man, and Eva quickly walked over. "Caleb?" she asked, "What did I tell you about staring?" She had had to do that a lot, tell him to stop staring at people, since they had showed up in this city.

Eva and Caleb Eva's eyes widened as she saw the snakeman intercept the little thief. She walked forward a little faster, and scooped the little toddler into her arms. "I'm so sorry," she said, and through her voice anyone could tell she wasn't very old. In her twenties maybe. The child looked no younger than 4, no older than 6. She held the little boy on her arm, and indicated her eyes toward the snakeman. "What do you say to the nice... man... for staring at him?" she asked, one eyebrow raised.

Caleb, who had the whole time continued staring, smiled, little teeth poking over plump lips. "He's a snake, mama!" he said and nodded his head. "Like a superhero!" Eva bit back a laugh.

Eva and Caleb It was at this point that Eva decided that it would be a good time to get the fuck back. Eva backed up back to where their backpack was and sat Caleb down in the stool. She ran her hand through her hair and looked over at the people who were fighting, eyes wide. She reached down into her bag and handed Caleb an apple.

Caleb, who was still giggling at the superhero snake man or whatever he was, nibbled on it lightly, and turned his head to glance around at the excitement. His blue eyes were wide as saucers, and he pointed with one stubby little finger.

Eva and Caleb While Eva was debating whether or not they should leave, Caleb had hopped down again and was staring right at the fight. Eva gave him a stern look, not something that usually came from her and Caleb stood right where he was, and watched, one fist full of apple, the other hand out and pointed. "Lookit!" he would cry, and Eva nodded at him. This wasn't anything, anyways. While the kid had a demon for a father and a witch for a mother, they had seen a lot of crap going on in their own house, no matter how much the young woman had tried to make sure that didn't happen. Eva flicked hair out of her eyes, and watched her little son closely.

Eva and Caleb Little sneakers, little hands pushing open the heavy bar door. Caleb had begged Eva to let them stay another day, and she had relented. There was no talk of the demon that was pushing through the forest toward them, hunting them, trying to find them anywhere he could.

When one thought of a mother, one immediately thought of some kind of soccer mom, someone who followed their child around, and made orders, and had an authoritative manner to them. But this wasn't as Eva was. Eva was more like a sister to this child than a mother, if that made any sense. She always thought she was going to be a lousy mother, but a sister she could do. Eva reached down and picked Caleb up off the ground when his wobbly legs caused him to fall over, laughing and set him down at a booth table, right by one other person in the bar. She set her large backpack down behind him. Maybe they would stay for a while.

The young mother and her little boy could possibly be safe here for a while, if they just managed to lay low.

Eva and Caleb Eva was tired, but Caleb was always brimming with energy. As Eva searched her wallet for enough money to rent a room for the night, Caleb had hopped down and run over to the person who had dropped the glass.

"Do you need help?" he asked in his little voice, and sat down in front of the man, but not in the glass. He reached out his hands, and the remainder of the glass floated into the air until it landed in a little neat pile on the table that the man was sitting at. "There you go," the five year old said cheerfully before standing there and watching the man put his head on his arms. His little hands gripped the edges of the table, and he watched the man silently.

Eva, meanwhile, had gone and bought a room for the night. She thought better of uprooting Caleb yet again, and bought the room for two nights. She watched Caleb out of the corner of her eye as he talked to the man, and exhibited his little powers. She knew there was no stopping him from talking to strangers, but he needed to stop using those powers. "They draw attention to us," she grumbled as she made her way back across the bar toward her son and this stranger he was talking to.

Eva and Caleb Caleb's wide blue eyes lit up when the demon told him that he was helpful. "Yeah," he said enthusiastically and nodded his head up and down so his blonde hair bounced around his head. "You're welcome," he responded again. He had pulled himself up and was hanging a bit on the table, feet swinging below him. The little boy liked to climb and swing on anything he could find. Sometimes that involved other people, but tonight he was acting a bit more courteous. His smile lit up, little teeth poking out from plump lips as he hopped up and down. "Yes! Tricks!" he exclaimed and pointed to a vase not too far away. In a pop! the vase turned into a frog. The flowers fell around it, and the frog let out a ribbit! before it hopped on the table closer and closer to Thierry.

Eva, on her way over, had to mask her laughter at the frog that was hopping around. It had the same designs on it as the vase had, and as she walked over she tickled Caleb from behind. "What did I tell you about turning things into frogs?" she asked, but she was laughing. Eva stood and looked at the man who was at the table with her son. Immediately she recognized him as a demon, and immediately a little red flag went off. She wasn't prejudiced, no. But she wasn't aware what kind of community demons kept from each other, and they were running from one. It was possible if they drew too much attention to themselves, word would get out where they were. Eva swallowed and gave a smile that looked rather forced.

"I'm sorry if he bothered you," she said, and smiled, taking the boy's hand. "There's no stopping him from talking to strangers. I was just over paying for a room and--"

"I'm Caleb!" the boy exclaimed, cutting her off and thrust his little hand toward the demon.

Eva and Caleb Eva smiled again, this time a bit more real as she saw the toad hopping away toward the door. This guy seemed nice. She reached down and ran her hand through Caleb's hair. He seemed to be very interested in the bug that was crawling on the table before his eyes shot up to Thierry again.

"I can fix your cut," Caleb said, and nodded his head, staring at the demon with wide eyes. He smiled and held his hand out further, trying to reach out and grab Thierry's hand. There was a period of silence before Caleb's little voice said again, "Are you a demon?" he asked quietly, "My daddy's a demon, and he's mean..." Eva closed her eyes, and rested one hand on her forehead. This was why she didn't let Caleb talk to strangers.

"If we're bothering you, we can move somewhere else." she said as she kept noticing the demon glancing at the woman behind her. "I know that it's a bar. People aren't used to kids in here."

Eva and Caleb Eva's stress levels were through the roof lately, and really she just wanted a drink. When Thierry's eyes would rest on her it would be clearly written across her face how distraught she was as she looked at the boy. They were never going to be able to run away forever. At one point, she was going to have to face him, and she would probably die. But not yet. She couldn't leave him yet. And with who? The young mother rubbed her temples, and picked the little boy up until he was in her arms. She really didn't want to keep the demon any longer.

"Look, I'm sure you want to go drink with your friends," she said after he was done speaking to her son. Caleb had been watching the man with big eyes, and nodded solemnly when he told her to listen to his mother. He buried his face in her shoulder. The subject of his father coming up, even though he had brought it up, was obviously scaring the little boy.

"We will," Eva smiled at Thierry, nodding and holding her child closer. "Thank you. See you around later maybe," she smiled again. For someone under so much stress, she really wasn't unattractive, even with the circles under her eyes. But she never really cared about that anyways. She reached out and touched the man on the shoulder lightly before walking over to the table a couple booths down from him.

"Byebye new friend." Caleb said as he sat down on the table that Eva had placed him on and picked up a handful of carrots, stuffing one of them into his little mouth. He chewed happily as Eva pulled out her notebook and wrote something down before sitting down at the desk, one hand on her forehead.

Eva and Caleb The door was flung open, and the little pitter patter of feet could be heard, as a small boy came running into the bar. The sound of thick heels could be heard soon after, and if one looked, they would see a young mother and her child, tiredly entering the bar. Eva watched as her son, Caleb ran toward the bar, and she straightened the dress she was wearing, that ran down to her ankles, and tight across her hips, held by a belt. She watched as her son grabbed the side of a stool very close to another man who was at the bar, someone who had ordered water, and was now speaking quietly to himself. She walked a bit faster to catch up to her son, and lifted him up onto the seat when he couldn't get any higher.

"Do you mind if he sits here?" she asked the man, prying his attention away from what he was doing. She gave him a sweet smile, long brown curls coming down on either side of her face.

Eva and Caleb Eva thanked him kindly, and lifted her son up onto the stool, settling him down just find there. The little boy turned his big, blue eyes toward the man, and his eyes were wide. He reached over with one, chubby little hand, and tapped the man on the shoulder.

Eva, meanwhile, was setting her large backpacker's backpack onto the ground under the counter, and pulling out a little notebook. She marked down where they were on a map, and sighed, running her hand through her hair. They were going in circles. We were here hardly here a few days ago. she though. He could still be here... But she knew Caleb was too tired to keep going tonight. She looked over as Caleb brought his hand up and tapped the big man on the shoulder.

The soft pitter patter of feet made itself known as a small boy ran into the bar. He stood in the center of the room, taking in his surroundings with bright, blue eyes. He wore a simple, ragged pair of brown overalls and an oversized dirty, white shirt. His little hands clenched and unclenched at his sides, and he was cautiously, but curiously, looking at everything.

Behind him, came his mother. She was young, with black hair the came to her shoulder blades, and a thin, muscular frame. She wore a large backpacker's backpack, weighing her down as she walked. She looked tired, and even as she walked up to the bar to order some food and a room, she kept one eye on little Caleb as he ran through the establishment.

They didn't have much money, but Eva was able to buy two bowls of chili, and some milk for her son. She went without drink, as she handed over the last of her coins, and didn't complain. "Caleb?" she called, but her son didn't answer. He was too busy standing at the feet of one of the patrons, and with wide, blue eyes, he pointed up at Astraeus "Goat man!" he shrieked in excitement. Eva blushed.

Eva ran one hand down her face, a smile playing at her tired lips. She left her backpack where the food was, and went to stand by her son. She smiled at the satyr. "I'm so sorry if he's disturbing you. He's really curious." Eva said, apologetically.

"Hi Nap!" the five year old exclaimed. "I'm Caleb. Did you know that you have horns?!" he giggled, chubby cheeks pulling back to accomodate his smile. "Mama!" Caleb exclaimed as Eva came to stand next to him. "I wanna be a sat... a sat..." the little boy stumbled over the words.

"Yes, curiosity is good. Especially in kids." Eva agreed, and laughed when Caleb proclaimed that he wanted to be a satyr. "We'll see what we can do." she said and stroked his hair. Last week he had wanted to be a king, and the week before that a space flyer. Eva followed his direction with little to no regard to herself.

Caleb had planted himself into a seat at the satyr's table. Eva, with a nod to her son, went and got his bowl of chili and glass of milk and put it in front of him. Her own bowl went untouched, until he finished. Only then, if he was not more hungry, would she eat. Eva continued to look over the half of a map that she had in her hand, as her son proceeded to make new friends.

"Why he do that?" Caleb asked, big blue eyes wide as he gulped down his milk.

Caleb was listening to the story with wide eyes, one hand holding his spoon full of chili, aiming toward his mouth. "I've been kidnapped once!" Caleb exclaimed, and nodded his head up and down. His mouth was full, so it sounded less like actual words and more like grunting.

Eva blinked once when Nap handed her the apple, and she took it with a "thanks" before setting it down on the table. She glanced sharply, protectively at the next being to come and join them. Caleb had not yet noticed his arrival, too engrossed in the story that Nap had been telling

Caleb nodded his head, swallowing a huge mouthful of chili, before pushing the empty bowl away from him. Eva interrupted their conversation to dab the sides of his mouth with a napkin. "Are you still hungry?" Eva asked, nodding her head toward her own bowl of chili. The little boy looked at it for a few seconds before nodding his head, honestly. Eva smiled, kissed the top of his head, and slid her own bowl over to him.

"Who kidnapped you?" the little boy asked curiously, and tilted his head to the side. Eva listened to this conversation sharply.

"That sounds more fun than my kidnapping!" Caleb exclaimed, and quickly finished off Eva's bowl of chili as well. Eva sat back in the seat, still quiet, listening to the conversation.
