Mia takes a moment to check over her bag one more time, making sure she's got all the necessary papers for the Magic Guild as well as clothes and toiletries for the week. This includes some outfits for Scorpius and Kaworu so that they fit in a bit more seamlessly.

She finds something in her bag that she most definitely didn't pack: a green teddy bear.

"Cepheus?" she calls. "Cepheus, did you put your bear in Mama's bag?"

He toddles into his parents' room, sippy cup of pumpkin juice in hand and nude except for his diaper, and goes, "Beaw, Mama?"

"Yes, I've got your bear," she says, handing it back to him. "And did you take your clothes off again? Scorpius and Kaworu will be here soon."

"Scowpus an' Kawoo?" he repeats, bobbing a bit.

"Yes honey, Scorpius and Kaworu."

Cepheus toddles out of the room in excitement, calling, "Daddy! Daddy! Scowpus an' Kawoo!"

Mia smiles as she watches her son leave the room, checking through her bag to see if he stuck anything else in her bag.

Well, there are no bumps in this arrival. Kaworu's heard many things about how an entrance or an exit from the bar can be.... quaint, to say the least. He's not disappointed to find out that doesn't apply here at all.

Doorway into a hallway! Bye, bar. Kaworu's too distracted by the trip to think of it after he closes the door. He can hear Cepheus a little already! That is just fantastic.

And it's not like it's not obvious or something which one to knock on so he just goes ahead and does that right away.

Mia's quick to get the door with a bright smile. Cepheus is at her feet, drinking from his sippy cup, though he's smiling around the spout.

"Hello Kaworu," she greets, reaching to give him a quick hug. "Are you ready for the trip?"

"I hope so," he says. "I didn't really know what to bring."

He never does, even if he's told every single necessity in detail. Kaworu just can't keep track of things like that.

His duffel bag is really clothes and that's it. well, a book , Ceph?" two. Always need that.

"You excited, Ceph?" he asks, kneeling down to smile at him.

"Just whatever you might need when you're away for a week," she says.

"Yah Kawoo!" Cepheus says in answer to Kaworu's question, bobbing a little again.

"Cepheus is going to have a boys' week with Daddy, aren't you?"

"What's a boy's week?"

Kaworu looks completely blank at the term.

Mia shrugs.

"I'm not a boy so I wouldn't know exactly. I suppose it's opposite yet equal to a girls' week. But it mostly means that Draco and Cepheus will be spending the week together without me interfering with my girliness."

She gestures into her apartment with Cepheus toddling back in.

"Do come in. I've got a sitting area in here and I've just about finished packing my bag. By the way, did you happen to see Scorpius on his way yet?"

"Here I am," Scorpius meekly announces from the doorway.

"Sorry, I, uhm - I completely forgot until coming here that I owed Cepheus a present still. From his, er, birthday? And so I stopped to do that and, er - Right."

He holds the said present in hand. A plush toy broom, fashioned from magic and not meant for any sort of flying, only cuddling.

"Hi."

"Hi!" Cepheus says toddling back to the door and reaching either for Scorpius or the plush broom. "Hi, Bahdah, hi!"

"Hello, Scorpius," Mia says with a bright smile and a one-armed hug.

And then, gesturing with her free hand, she makes the necessary introductions.

"Scorpius, Kaworu Nagisa. Kaworu, Scorpius Malfoy."

Returning Mia's hug, Scorpius then scoops Cepheus up into his arms, gifting him the plush broom as he does so.

"Er, uhm. Hi, er - Hullo, Kaworu," he says, greeting the other boy.

Did Kaworu get Cepheus anything for his birthday? He can't remember. That's just as bad as not doing anything at all, so he feels really great by comparison here.

"Hello," he says, "Scorpius."

Kaworu has his absolute best poker face.

Cepheus, meanwhile, is hugging Scorpius, the plush broom, and his sippy cup all at the same time. Mia takes a moment to take the sippy cup from her baby.

"So, I've got some clothes for the both of you," she says. "To make you fit in a bit better and avoid what might be some odd questions. Though I doubt anyone will say anything about what you both have on now."

"Mama, godda boom!" Cepheus tells Mia with delight.

"You've got a broom?" Mia asks with exaggerated surprise. "Well we should go show Nana, shouldn't we?"

"Yah!" he answers back.

"And the sooner we get him to Nana, the sooner we can be on our way to Meribia and our ship."

"Oh! Right, er - "

Scorpius returns Cepheus to the floor with an affectionate mussing-up of his hair.

"We'll see you when we're back, then? Go on and show Nana your broom."

Clothes affect how someone is perceived? Well, Kaworu supposes so. It's not something he even knew to think about so it's a lucky coincidence if he's just fine.

"Will it be very hard to get there?" He doesn't know very much about this either. He doesn't like not knowing very much.

"Oh no. Mother lives here in the Magic Guild Mansion. We'll just have to go downstairs and down the hall to get there. After that, we'll be going to harbor in Meribia to board our boat. Though if either of you would like to pick up some last minute supplies in Meribia, I wouldn't mind stopping at some shops."

Mia grabs her bag and rejoins Scorpius at the door.

Cepheus walks over to Kaworu, dragging the plush broom in one hand and holding out his other.

"Hey, comeon," he says to Kaworu, ready to lead him. "Comeon!"

Scorpius hardly knows much about this himself. He's been to Vane and the Magic Guild before, but it was new then and still seems new now.

(He's a little more comfortable with the not knowing something, though.)

"First visit?" he asks Kaworu when Cepheus starts acting the part of group guide.
