PostSubject: [C] Ballet   Thu Apr 27, 2017 1:56 am

Deadlines were usually something that Fleck was all over. He was rarely bothered by deadlines, because he was always on top of his work.

But his latest client had dropped a bombshell extra task on him a week before the original deadline, and he was overworked like crazy.

Dick had come over to spend some time with him, but it had ended up as hanging out together but not really, as Fleck HAD to get this done. So Dick was sat on a stool in the corner of his studio, reading and being largely ignored while Fleck worked in the fine details of the sculpture he was working on. Deadline was tomorrow. He needed to finish this fast.

But, of course, things could never be easy for him. Chai, all dolled up for a date, poked her head into the studio. "You ready yet?"

"For what?" he grunted back, not lifting his eyes from the sculpture.

"Uh, ballet? You said you would take them tonight."

Fleck froze up, then let out a filthy curse, slamming the tool in his hand down on the table. "I forgot. Fuck. Chai, I can't. I can't hang around there tonight. I have to get this done. Deadline's tomorrow, and I still have to fire it." He raked his hands through his tangled, clay-covered hair.

There was a moment of tense silence. "I can't either, Fleck. I'v got a date with Francesca. Someone needs to take them."

Dick didn't mind being ignored. Sure, he would rather spend time with Fleck while he was here, but he could sense he was, uncharacteristically, stressed. Very very stressed.

At first, he had debated just leaving and let Fleck get on with his work. In the end, he stayed. He tried to help out where he can, to ease even just a little bit of the stress; bringing him drinks and snacks when he needed them and staying out of the way while he was working.

He glanced up from his book as Chai came in and listened to the conversation between the siblings. Then jolted up as Fleck unexpectedly slammed the tool down.

A frown formed between his brows.

In the moment of silence, he put his book down and made his way over to Fleck and placed what he hoped was a soothing hand on his shoulder. He gave it a slight squeeze.

Licking his lips he hesitated before speaking up.

"If there is no one else..." He trailed off, hoping they would pick up on his suggestion.

Fleck's shoulder was tense under Dick's hand.

But it settled a little at Dick's suggestion. "Are you sure?" Clearly he was relieved that Dick had made the offer, but he didn't want to take advantage of his boyfriend's kindness.

"Dick, you're wonderful." Chai swept forwards to give the blond a hug. "Okay, its pretty simple. The ballet studio is right next to that old English theatre. You know the one? Just outside of old town. You have to stay for the class, 'cause Marco gets anxious when people aren't around. It's only an hour and a half, so it's not so bad."

Chai kissed Dick's cheek, then disappeared.

Fleck leaned back against Dick for a moment. "You're amazing."

"It's really no problem," Dick insisted.

He tensed and relaxed at the brief hug he was given. Then he nodded along to what Chai was saying. It didn't sound too difficult.

Dick turned back to Fleck as Chai left. His fingers swept along Fleck's shoulders to gently take hold his jaw. He tilted his head back and leant down to give him a chaste kiss.

"I think you're the amazing one." He smiled down at his boyfriend. "Who else am I taking, anyway? Other than Marco."

He gave a quiet moan when Dick kissed him. Even if it was chaste, it was a nice break form work that he really appreciated.

"Tilly, Stella, Sofia, Raf, Guiseppina, Valentina, Battista and Rosa."

He ran a hand through his messy hair again. "They're all well behaved. Just keep an eye on Battista and Marco when you're walking."

The was nine kids. Nine.

It dawned on him that this may not be such as a good idea. Even if they were well behaved, they were still children.

Dick nodded.

"Will do. Anything else I should know?"

"Make sure they all take a leak before they leave the studio. Val has the tiniest bladder you've ever seen."

His lips kicked up. "And take your book. You shouldn't have to do anything. Just be there in case Marco gets nervous. Marco likes you." Marco had taken to Dick like white on rice. He often spent his time at grandmas house sitting in Dick's lap. The three year old had developed a fast friendship with the awkward vampire.

"Thank you for this."

The corners of his own lips curved up.

"I figured."

He didn't know why the toddler took a liking to him. He wasn't the best with children; never knowing what to say or how to act around them. But he did like to think he was getting somewhat better with them after spending so much time with Fleck's family.

"Again, it's really no problem."

He collected his book and made his way over to the door.

"Will they all be downstairs ready or am I rounding them up?"

"They'll all be there."

Fleck turned back to his sculpture. "Good luck."

As soon as Dick stepped into the living room, Marco was up out of his chair. He clung to Dick's leg with one arm, and his Diego the Bat plush with the other, looking up at his uncles boyfriend with wide brown eyes.

Dick looked down at the tiny child that clung to his leg. With no thought at all, he leant down, picked him up and let him sit on his hip.

Dick glanced around the room, uncertainty settling in. When he volunteered he thought it would only be a couple of kids he would be taking. Why he thought that he didn't know. This was Fleck's family, of course there would be nine of them.

He cleared his voice.

"So, I'm taking you all to ballet," he said to the room, hoping his voice carried and caught their attention.

Rosa, the oldest of the nine of them at twelve years old, looked up from her phone and nodded. "Uh-huh. Chai told us."

Her gaze turned back to her phone. "We leave in five minutes," she told the designated adult, as if she was the one in charge.

He stared down at the child. Not too sure if he should be a little relieved or offended that she was taking charge. He supposed she done this so many times now, she knew the routine.

"... Right."

He perched himself on the couch next to her, the toddler now in his lap.

"Do you have all your shoes on? Bags packed?"

"None of us live here," Rosa replied in a 'duh' tone.

They only convened here so they could all walk together. They had to have their bags packed before they left their own homes, and none of them bothered taking their shoes off when the came to their grandma's house.

They were all ready, just waiting to be led out.

In Dick's lap, Marco played with the wings of his plush.

"Oh, of course."

He has just been made to feel stupid by a twelve-year-old. But he couldn't make himself be mad at her. After all, she was a kid.

"So why are do you all leave in five minutes? Why not leave now?"

"Cause that's when we always leave." She hadn't dropped the tone, or looked up from her phone.

Rosa was going through teenage attitude slightly early.

"Right," he repeated himself.

So he was decided to wait, watching the other children around the room trying to suss them out.

Other than Marco, he never really got to know Fleck's nieces and nephews. He always felt it was more important to get to know his siblings, their other halves and his parents. He wished forced himself and made the effort to get to know the younger portion of the family now.

"This must all be pretty routine for you, right? Can you help me out a bit? I really don't know what I am doing."

"Just make sure no one gets run over."

That was all the help he was going to get from Rosa.

Marco hoisted up Diego, pressing the pink toy up into Dick's face, demanding the man's attention.

After that comment, it took a lot in him to not run upstairs and beg Fleck to take them instead.

Making sure no one gets run over wasn't as simple as it sounded. It couldn't be. Especially when there was one of him and nine of them and he wasn't getting any help from the eldest.

His anxiety ridden thoughts were interrupted by the plush toy.

"That's my face," he said, voice slightly muffled and said face scrunched up.

He gently pushed the toy out of the way.

Marco giggled and pushed Diego back into Dick's face again.

He waved the toy around, nudging Dick with it, clearly trying to get Dick to play with him.

Dick watched the small boy wave the toy around, not completly sure what he was asking for. Then relization hit him.

Marco wanned him to play.

And Dick had zero idea how to.

He carefully took the pink toy and shook it slightly in front of Marco, making the wings move and shimmer in the light. He hopped it would suffice, not entially sure on what else he could do.

Marco grasped one of the wings, and tugged it when Dick shook it.

His big eyes stared up at the Vampire, and he tilted his head to the side.

There was something daunting about those large eyes. They didn't seem particularly impressed with his attempt either.

He let the toy go, giving it back to Marco.

"Isn't it time we all go now?"

Marco hugged Diego close again contently.

"Uhuh," Rosa replied distractedly. She stood, shouldering a duffel bag and reached out for one of the younger kids hand, who took it obediently.

Rosa put her phone in her pocket and made her way towards the front door, with the mess of kids following behind her like lost ducklings.

At least the kids were paying attention to Rosa.

He did a quick head count of the kids, all nine present. Then he scanned the room ensuring all the duffle bags were collected. There were a couple left; either they were the younger children's bags, too large for them to carry, or they were forgotten.

He shouldered them both and followed the group of children out of the door, closing it behind him, Marco still on his hip.

Fleck was right about them being well behaved. The older kids took responsibility for the younger ones.

He just hoped it would last to and from the studio.

Rosa led the way surely, towing the child in her grasp.

She'd done this walk so many times before that she could do it backwards and blindfolded.

The others followed behind Rosa dutifully.
