"I was talking to Toots. Sorry. Aye, you too could be here listening to this waterfall behind me. Smelling the flowers...all that wonderful stuff. So, what did she say then?" Ash asked, as he threw the wolf's ball out again.
"She asked me if I didn't think you were too old for me," Luna said on the other end of the conversation. "I asked her then, whom do you suggest Mom? You? Is he too old for you? Then she gave me this evil look," Luna laughed. "Dad held up his finger and shook his head. She has a point, he said. Who here is that old? Then Mom gave HIM the evil eye. He shrugged and smiled and told her he loved her. So, it came down to that with them. But I did get a lot of good feedback from them and the others I spoke to. I'll tell you who-all when and if I can come to see you. Mom told me, if you can't be your own person, you don't need to be there. I got that. It's like you need me to be a butterfly and not a millstone. In fact, that's what Tia Bianca said to me. What do you think?"
"Your mother does have a right to ask that. You're her baby. She wants to make sure you," he laughed..., "She wants to make sure you go to a good home, where you'll be taken care of, not abused, like she was. You know that story.
"You do seem to have a rudimentary understanding, if you can actually do it. What I need you to do Luna is make my world beautiful. Make it have softness, beauty, imagination, and smell good. And let me do what I need to do, when I need to do it. I know you can do that, and I will help you with whatever, whenever you need me if I'm not busy. Then you have to wait. You're spending your Time with me and I'll spend mine back with you. I, of all beings here understand just how precious you are. I may be half crazy but I would never hurt you. I don't think you're going to beat that offer. Do you? Why aren't you here? If you want, you can come and stay a few weeks, then decide if you want to make it permanent, but by then - it'll be too late."
"Yes, I know that story. My Dad said something like that, that I was special. And that my Mom knew that." He imagined Luna smiling to herself and blushing, like she did sometimes. "Ummmm, what do you mean, too late?"
"You won't want to leave, or you'll be happy to go home - one of the two."
"Oh, I see," Luna answered, laughing.
"Not yet, you don't, little wolf-girl," Ash replied with a somewhat perverse laugh. "But you will. I assure you."
There was a bit of a pause and silence on the other end. After a deep breath, Luna asked if she could have a week to go see her brother and nephew.
Ash took it Luna wasn't a fan of Olivia's - her sister in law. See her grandparents of course, and to say a proper 'hasta la vista' to her parents. "Of course you can. You can have whatever you like that I am able to give you."

You've really given this relationship some real depth as well as intrigue. It's moving nicely. Nice interaction scene with Ash and Tootsie.
