I still cannot fathom how you can stomach those vile things,” Har’xa replied in a flat tone, narrowing his eyes at his heir. “All I can taste is weeks old oil and salt. And do not get me started on the texture of those bars! I think there are plastifoam out there that are easier to bite through than them,” he ended his faux tirade with knowing tilt of his head at Lin and a small amused grin playing at a corner of his mouth. It was a tradition between father and son that spanned decades, and their little retorts never failed to make the worries he held within him settle.

 

Feeling more calm when it came to his youngest, the older male took another sip of his tea before he moved on to their next topic of conversation. While it was a matter that still prickled at his whole being, Har’xa was not a person who avoided speaking of something unpleasant just because he wanted something to be otherwise. “At this point? Only remnants remain,” the dark haired male spoke in a dismissive tone. Truly, for one who claimed that they were at the apex of military might and technological advancement, it was disappointing that they fell overnight.

 

Kou was just beginning to settle back into life within the family when news of their Grand Moff’s sacrifice was reported on the holonet.” While Har’xa did not feel anything in particular for the late Natasi Fortan, it annoyed him that she commanded such devotion from his own flesh and blood. More so when he was left to simmer in his own dark thoughts and allowed to deteriorate until he was barely sleeping. To the Epicanthix, she did not deserve his son’s loyalty and respect.

 

He feels that he should have been there despite knowing that it is a futile battle,” he continued to speak calmly, carefully not allowing his displeasure at the thought to leak through his voice. “Sula is worried that he will regress to how he was after his first major conflict over Skor II, so she is determined to stay by his side and distract him from his thoughts. But I feel that after several weeks of listening to both me and your mother, Kou is beginning to chafe.

Your mother is doing well and has been holding up admirably, my decision to move the clan to the Core notwithstanding.” While Sula continued to tease him cheerfully about the sudden affliction of his midlife crisis every now and then, she had been purely supportive. “And I will. She will undoubtedly be ecstatic to hear that you will be coming home for a visit and will no doubt spoil you terribly,” Har’xa said with a hint of wry amusement colouring his tone.

 

As his heir’s finger lengthened and turned dark to stir the cup of tea before him, the older male shook his head faintly with a soft ‘tsk’. “This place has perfectly acceptable silverware for your convenience. One would think you have lost your manners and turned into a savage in the short time you have left home,” he chastised, picking up his own steaming cup to take a sip of the fragrant tea. Despite the nature of his words, it was said in a teasing manner, for Har’xa knew Lin did it on purpose to elicit a reaction out of him.

 

I am glad as ever to hear that your endeavours have been successful. And while I would like to heard more about your future plans and directions, perhaps it would be better if we return to the matter when you are home and we can speak at our leisure.” Despite his usually stoic demeanour, the Admiral was still first and foremost a father, and he missed spending time with his children.

 

Life… is what it is,” he said, waving his hand carelessly in the air in an act that was usually unlike the formal male. “The ponderous nature of bureaucracy is neverending, but I am slowly adapting back into my previous role. Kou, however, has been his usual stubborn self.” The slight stress in his tone elucidated what Har’xa thought of his youngest son’s tantrum. “He has been nothing but frustrating, and it is beginning to affect Sula. Perhaps it would do him some good if you were to speak to him when you are home.

The most discreet of motions that he caught out of the corner of his eyes was enough for the older male to know that his son has arrived for their appointment. While the other was delayed, Har’xa has been kept updated on his schedule and knew that Lin’yao was headed for La Primavera straight after he has arrived at the starport. It was due to the knowledge of his circumstances that the Admiral allowed his heir to be seated with nary a chastisement.

 

Instead, the Epicanthix took the opportunity to study the features and form of his firstborn, a father’s concern for his children surging up. After all, exchanging words through a holoprojector only allowed him limited assessment of the other’s wellbeing. And while he had made a mistake of letting his youngest to neglect his own health and deteriorate until he was but a mere shadow of himself, Har’xa does not commit the same mistake twice.

 

After a moment of silence, the older male inclined his head in acknowledgement of his scion’s greeting. “Greetings, my son. I’m as well as I can be.” Here, he gave his son a faint smile, deciding to continue along with the lines of pleasantries before they eventually moved on towards more… disagreeable matters. “Your mother sends her love and regards,” Har’xa paused for a moment, pushing a delicately wrapped box across the table towards his son.

 

She is doing well, but she misses you and has asked me to pass you some homemade treats she had made especially for you.” With Sula worrying over Kou and his willful stubbornness, she had declined to accompany him even though she desired to fuss over Lin. While most of his anger has burned out and only the embers of it remained, his youngest son was still simmering in his frustration. “She will be pleased to know that you look to be in excellent health.

 

Har’xa leaned forward, his movements graceful as he poured a cup of tea for his son, making a small gesture for the other partake in it before they continued to speak. “And we do. I hope you have been well on your end?

The evergreen world of Chandrila was peaceful, and its weather temperate. One Har’xa Escala sat by the terrace, enjoying the warmth of the sun on his skin. Life has been hectic ever since he had made the decision to return to his previous position in the Imperial Confederation. There had been much to do, between his duties as Head of House Escala and his reinstated position as Fleet Admiral.

 

Even now, as he sat here in the quiet serenity of the famed Skygarden with a pot of fragrant tea set before him, there was still work to be done. While it required his attention, it was not so urgent that the older male could not afford to set aside some time for his eldest. After all, the other had left home for quite some time, and while Har’xa was content to know that his son was doing well, it would ease a lot of concerns that he had to be able to see Lin’yao in person.

 

It was just unfortunate that Sula was unable to leave Anaxes and accompany him for this trip, for she continued to fret over their youngest. She would have enjoyed seeing him for herself and making sure he’s fine for herself as well. The Epicanthix leaned back against the leather settee, his eyes drifting over the beautiful garden once more as he continued to wait for his heir.
