Returning home that evening, he was surprised that Melody and Andromeda did not give him more pitiful looks than they did. Andromeda just glanced at him placidly as she checked her messages on her electronic glasses while Melody did not even look up at all from her tablet – probably because she had her headphones in and did not realise he was home. Kiddo was the only one who really acknowledged that he was home by jumping up on him. Where was Flick? Most likely in his room.

"Hāi, " he said to his wife as he walked by her.

"Hāi, " she replied. "By the way; are wǒmen still going the day after tomorrow?"

He stopped. "Going to what?"

"The opening of Olympus United."

"Oh. Wǒ bù zhīdào. Can wǒ decide tomorrow?"

"No. Now."

"Fine. Let's go. Wǒ need a day off work anyways."

"Yes, " she agreed. "Yes you do."

After putting the Oxen robe on a coat hanger in his closet, he went into the bathroom. He browsed the cabinet in search of painkillers because on the shuttle ride home a headache had developed. Unfortunately, he and Andromeda were out of them so he went to the bathroom attached to the lounge and dining area.

How could Lysander let his son do drugs? Koris thought while watching Prince snuff the cigarette and throw the remains in the trash. He knew better than to smoke on the tour.

"So that's the real reason tā came, " Andromeda muttered to Koris as their daughter ran off to be with her boyfriend.

I wonder if Princeton has offered Melody any of those cigarettes, he thought with a worried expression. He had seen how quickly people became addicted to those little demons. Killer or not, they were still toxic.

Lady Sun squeezed his shoulder to inform him that he should relax. It was Mel's life and her choices to make, not his.
