I laughed at Lestat and said, "well what do you expect? COme here big tiger." I grabbed his shirt and pulled him to me into an embrace. Chubbles started to show some jealousy and climbed up my pants leg. I laughed when she got up to my waist and meowed at me. I had to break the kiss to get the cub and hold her in my arms.
"Well someone is jealous." I said to him.
I laughed softly and petted the little tiger, then kissed Tay lovingly on the lips. "She is right to be jealous, with someone as beautiful as you around, she is scared she might not have enough attention." I teased her. I smiled and took Oz in my arms. "There. Oh what a big boy..." I told him softly. "Let's go back in the basement. They are hungry. Oh, Faust? Show the island to your friend. You have food at the stable." I smiled and slowly walked in the house, down in the basement, and lighted the candles with the mind gift.
I took chubbles with me down into the basement and put her down onto the floor. It was time for her to be on the ground to play with Oz while they waited to be fed. "And what about Faust. Does he like his new mate?" I asked Lestat.
"I believe he does..." I said softly. "He didn't kick her yet, that's because he likes her." I laughed softly and smiled to her. She was too beautiful.
I walked to the box and opened it, to find many smaller metallic boxes. I took two of them out, one had milk, the other meat. "Do you think they are old eat meat?" I asked, rather confused.
I looked in the box. There was bowls and bottles. I guessed it would be better with the bottles at first, so I filled two of them with milk.
"Definately the milk. It will probably be another month before they eat the meat. Even then we have to hide the meat so that they can learn to hunt." I said to him.
I picked Chubbles up and began to feed her by bottle. She instantly started drinking it and she was having a blast.
I smiled lovingly. She was looking so beautiful, feeding Chubbles like that. "So, Oz.. hungry my little boy?" I asked softly. I showed him the bottle and he climbed on my legs and started to drink rather quickly.
"They were hungry..." I whispered.
"Ah so that is what they were waiting on when you returned back from getting the horses their things." I said to him. Chubbles was falling asleep and drinking at the same time. I looked at Lestat and pushed the cubs little pet bed into the corner and took the bottle out of Chubbles' mouth so that I could let her sleep. I gently put her down on the little pet bed and ran my hand gently down her back. I smiled at Lestat and said, "She's got her belly full."
I walked over and looked at Oz who was getting very sleepy and his eyes were getting heavy. "He'll be asleep soon too." I said to him
I smiled softly. "Yes he will.. Yet he is still drinking. Look."
I took away the bottle and he opened his eyes right away, meowing at me. I gave it back to him and he started drinking again.
"He drinks more than his sister.. He will be a strong tiger." I smiled softly.
"They usually are the ones that eat the most comopared to the female cats don't you think?" I asked him. I kissed Oz and walked over to a chair and sat down. I looked at Lestat and smiled at him wondering if he was pouting because I hadn't kissed him.
Oz finally fell asleep on the bottle and I managed to put him on the bed with his little sister. I smiled as I slowly got up and took Tay's hand to walk back upstairs.
"I'm not pouting." I said in a soft voice. "I was lost in my thoughts."
"Ah good I was wondering if you would be because I managed to not kiss you and kissed Oz only." I said to him as we walked up stairs. As soon as we did, I pulled him to me and kissed him. "Let's go sit in the hammock." I said to him.
I kissed her deeply, keeping her against me even when she pulled back. "Oh princess..." I whispered. "I was waiting for that."
I showed her a way, a door in the back of the house. "The hammock is there." I said softly.
I grinned and took him playfully by the collar of his shirt and pulled him outside with me. I climbed into the hammock and pulled him on top of me. "Lay with me for awhile?" I asked him calmly.
I was enjoying every single moment and I knew I had to do something for him but I didn't know what I could do. I had to be sneaky about it and do it when he least expected it.
I smiled softly to her and climbed on the hammock, just on top of her, and kissed her deeply, lovingly. "I love you, ma belle..." I told her silently. I closed my eyes and rested my head on her shoulder.
