She stood on the high cliffs in a filmy green dress that the wind tugged at and knee high brown boots. She had a secret well...two secrets. She had contact her sister and had heard that she could gain powers but through a kiss and not sex. It was less powerful and she couldn't do it as often.

She looked at the many sea birds that lived on these cliffs with such longing. She had stood on this very spot when she had sacrificed her wings for the creature she loved above all the others. Ritz. She smiled as she thought of her playful and fierce Jabberwocky. She touched her stomach as she thought of her other secret.

She looked across the skies for him. She wasn't hiding what she was today. Today she showed him her true face, the one he fell in love with.

(Yes, now where was that boy, in question? After all, they were meeting for an outing, a picnic, or something along those lines. He was out there, though, out in the sky. He's that black dot that was moving around at a fair clip. That boy could fly fast. Of course, that'd be because he was a larger-than-human somewhat draconic creature with black leathery scales. He had wings, talons, a tail, yellow-glowing eyes, and - oddly - buck-teeth on jaws that had railspike teeth along the rest of it. Jabberwocks were vicious creatures. Well...out in the wild. Ritz was...what you might call Country Mouse learning things from City Mouse, only City Mouse had been John Constantine, in London. That's where he got his understanding of the human world from...as well as his accent. He had a human form of his own making, but he wasn't using it right now. He was in Jabberwock form and...as he came nearer or went out farther... Wait, was he...?)

"MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE! MINE!"

(Yup! Ritz was attacking the seagulls and they were going nuts! He said that he'd bring the food, but fortunately this wasn't what he had in mind. When he passed overhead, Irea could see that he had a big - like cooler-sized big - picnic basket grasped in one of his claws. Hopefully, all the stuff in there was secure... Ritz was a chaotic wonder who needed to EAT chaos every now and then, so this must've been a bit of sport for good measure. Then...)

POP!!

Ritz: ...whoops.

(Oh dear. Ummm...why did that seagull just explode?)

She laughed as he banked and darted among the loud annoying seabirds. She would give anything to be out there WITH him. She had sent up a comfortable blanket and pillows for them to lounge on and enjoy the warm spring day. She jumped though when one of them...EXPLODED?! She hadn't heard him burble which might make one of the birds burst like that.

She covered her mouth to hold back a laugh. She took a deep breath. "RIIIIIIIIITZ! OVER HERE!" She called waving her arms to get his attention. She had never known that she could love someone this much. They had such an insane story. Meeting on that blind date, his escorting her home, the time reset, finding each other again, finding his burble, fighting her nature. Now was a whole new adventure...

(Well, that was because he'd actually divebombed into it with a burble, and that the distance and the speed kind of blotted it out...except for the effect. In effect, he'd just flown right through a bird and made it explode. He did seem to slow down and rebalance himself when she called out. Ah, here he comes. He was coming in for a landing, moving to drop down past her so he wasn't too close to the cliffside, landed, and then went wildly shapeless before turning into a young man with messy brown hair, casual clothes, with a basket in hand, and a number of feathers clinging to him.)

Ritz: Pfft! Made it!

(God damn that goofy grin of his. He was either like a dog who wa happy to have torn apart a pillow or a cat who was like "What?". Maybe both...)

She loved to watch him as he came in to land. She laughed as he reshaped himself and was covered in feathers. She went to him and began pulling feathers off of him. She felt her heart quicken at that playful smile. Irea giggled and finally got all the feathers off.

"What if...I could get my wings back?" she asked him looking up into the blue eyes of his more human form. "Would you help me do it?"

She missed the sky. She missed them flying over the city in the dark laughing and whooping as their hearts pounded and the wind tore their breath away. Of catching warm thermals over the ocean and lazy flights in warm summer rains. She wanted all of that back again.

"What if...I could get my wings back?"

(Ritz's more jovial expression went to a complete halt and put on a 'What?' face. Actually, to be more accurate, it was a 'You what?' face, really.)

"Would you help me do it?"

(Now, it went to full-on shock as he thought of how she lost those wings, how the only thing that kept him from just lashing out at her family was the girl he'd held in his arms at the time. He wanted to kill them for that, for insisting that something like that be done, just because of their relationship. It was monstrous, even for him. Ritz dropped the basket and went over to Irea, one hand inclining her head to meet his at the forehead.)

Ritz: You know damn-well that I would help you. The only thing I'd say is 'Not on any of their terms'. If it's something else, then always. Always...

(He would never let them touch her again. Never.)

"No no. They wouldn't help me with that anyway. Dad pretty much made it clear I am dead to him at least. But not ALL my family is so douche tastic which is how I found out a fun little loophole Dad never mentioned." she said leading him to the blanket and sitting down.

"I saw my sister at a downtown cafe and she was like fuck Dad's rule and she invited me to sit down and chat. She told me that full succubi gain powers through sex with many different partners. A "disgraced" one like me doesn't lose that ability altogether. It will be weaker and I can't do it as often, but instead of sex all it takes is a kiss." she said. "So a kiss from you...and I can fly again...in theory." she said looking up at him.

She was ready to take the skies back. And she could only hope he helped her do it.

(Okay, so he was listening to this, and while he really didn't want to owe any of her family anything right now, he was glad that her sister had spoken up about this. The loophole, though... Ritz was trying to process this and...something didn't add up. It wasn't a big deal, but he was confused now. They were...intimate. They weren't just boyfriend and girlfriend. The two of them were straight-up lovers, which was precisely what the family had been so irritated about. And with that in mind...why hadn't the wings grown back already? For that matter, how come she couldn't Burble either? It couldn't be just a kiss, or even just a simple lover's kiss. Maybe it was a power she had to turn on first, and that she wasn't aware of it, but still...it was worth asking about. She could no-doubt see his confusion and be anticipating the very question now. Better let fly, anyway.)

Ritz: How come this hasn't happened already? We're not lacking for intimacy, love. Of course, I'll help, but I dunno how these powers work. Does anything special have to happen first?

"I have to want a power of yours. I have to focus on what I want and the taking of it before I kiss you. I can't just peck anyone on lips and BOOM superpowers." she said giggling. He was right though they had definitely been all over each other lately. Which made her think of her second surprise. Should she spring that one now or wait till after they try to get her wings back?

"So...now or after we eat?" she asked looking up at him. She loved those expressive eyes. He always wore what he felt on his face. Irea smiled wide looking so happy and excited. She had the whole world ahead of her. And the love of her life beside her to take it on.

(Ohhh... Yeah, it was something you had to switch on. Comprehension dawned on him just before she asked him now or later.)

Ritz: I say, the sooner the better. I mean, it might take a while to grow in, and if we eat after, it'll have time, and then we can go for a lovely fly over the sea.

(He was properly excited and happy to hear this. She was getting her wings back! This was great! Ritz was currently getting overwhelmed with energy, and not even the kind that he ate. He was gonna go flying off again for a bit if he didn't manage to contain himself. So uhh...you can probably gauge how the other thing was gonna hit him.)
