Yu – Round 13: ‘Lilith’s Choice, Pt. 4′

Filed under: Yu — Tags: , , , , , , — Mao @ 9:52 am

Tsung Yu has finally convinced Lilith to marry him. Somehow, they ended up with a child. Can Lilith step up to motherhood or will she falter and become obsessed with the unknown?

Being a father wasn’t terribly hard for Tsung, he had always been the responsible type and he had helped with Shang a little in his youth, too. However, he was concerned about Lilith. She was extremely busy working on whatever it was she did in her little ‘secret’ room she had made him build. He was worried that whatever it was, it was highly dangerous and needed to stop.

Lilith tried to assure him that it wasn’t. It was simply her own little device to make the unknown suddenly become known. This made no sense to Tsung, but Lilith wasn’t about to elaborate and blow her entire secret.

“Just trust me, okay? It isn’t anything crazy.”

“That’s like saying a bomb is a child’s toy!” Tsung replied, a little flustered. “Why is this so important to you and why are you refusing to tell me the whole story?”

Lilith rolled her eyes, attempting to feign disgust, “because you wouldn’t understand. Just let it go. It’s not some all-consuming obsession. I’ve already finished it. It’s done and over with. Just drop it.”

What she hadn’t told Tsung was that it was that Ryu Anderson had emailed her and would be dropping by while he was at work. It was purely a business-related visit. He had heard of her dabbling in the paranormal and decided that she could help them find out what happened to Katy Saunders.

“I can’t just summon her,” Lilith said, making a face. “What do I look like? A nutjob?”

“What do you need, then?”

“Items, personal affects, something… oh, and money.”

Ryu shrugged, “that isn’t an issue. We have some of her things and well, yes, money isn’t a problem at all.”

“Good. Get ‘em, let me know, and then we’ll arrange it, all right? But it won’t be instantaneous. This stuff takes time.”

Lilith may not win any ‘mother of the year’ awards, but she did her job fairly well. She cared for Zhou when he cried and cuddled him. He was the deciding factor when it came to whether or not she would help Ryu. She had every intention of bringing Chuck back, but now it seemed moot. She didn’t want to be like Shaniqua or Shang. The machine could only handle one resurrection and that would be the one of Katy Saunders.

If anything, she’d have oodles of fun watching the drama storm that would surely follow.

Zhou’s birthday followed not long after Ryu called to confirm he had the personal affects. Tsung was oblivious to his wife’s deeds and happily enjoyed his son. He was fine with Zhou being their only child. He had goals and personal wants, too, and while he loved children… he had no desire to have oodles of them.

Little Zhou seemed to agree. He enjoyed having the entirety of his parent’s attentions.

Lilith tried in vain to teach him nursery rhymes, but he seemed less-than-interested. It was something that Florence had done with her, so she was adamant. Tsung laughed and asked what she was trying to do to their son–boys didn’t need that kind of influence. She threw a toy at him, causing him to make a hasty exit.

Amusingly enough, Lilith could already see a lot of herself in Zhou. She wondered what exactly what would mean in the years to come.

One afternoon, Lilith came in from the backyard to find Tsung home from work and Mary O`Hanlon in their living room. They had been remodeling the house, but Lilith was sure they had a permit. Tsung was an architect, after all, they didn’t forget those kinds of things!

As soon as she entered, Mary turned and left, a grave look on her face. Tsung looked abashed.

“What was the DA doing in our living room, Tsung?” Lilith demanded, feeling worried.

“Nothing,” Tsung shrugged it off. “She just had some questions about recent developments.”

Lilith’s eyes narrowed, “the ones for Gordon, right? She was here about him, wasn’t she?”

“Just let it go, Lilith.” Tsung said, heading for Zhou’s room. “He’s awake, I’ll get him.”

To further exacerbate Lilith, Kate dropped by later that evening. Lilith wasn’t pleased to see her. She had heard about the whole University debacle and was quite angry.

“You look like you’re smuggling goods, Kate!” Lilith growled. “What were you thinking?”

“Why are you so mad? The lamp worked!”

Lilith’s eyes widened, “are you insane? You’re pregnant, Kate! To a perma-cheat! What did you do to the lamp? Don’t you know anything about consequences.”

Kate ignored her, instead she smiled happily, “we’re getting married, too.”

“Kate, please, listen to me,” Lilith’s anger calmed and her tone became serious, “you need to give me the lamp back. You can’t go around irresponsibly making wishes. Don’t you see?”

“Don’t worry, Lilith. I won’t use it again, I promise.”

Zhou’s move into childhood had been a swift one. Lilith could hardly believe it–she was the mother of a child. She felt old and crotchety. Tsung told her to stop being so melodramatic.

As it turned out, Zhou was a lot like Lilith in many ways. How he chose to channel that, however, would shape his eventual future. For now, he was content with fishing.

Note from Mao: For there being no drama in the actual house, this house sure is tied to a lot of other dramas! Zhou is adorable, he looks like Tsung. I almost wish they’d have another kid, but that’s up to them.

  3. Is Kate expecting twins? That bump likes mighty big for a single baby.

    Consequences, consequences.. haha

    I’m not actually sure, but I hope not! She’s also put on some weight.

  4. Whew, I’m all caught up again! This summer semester for me is crazy insane! Anyhoo, I must have missed Jun’s death…or at least I don’t remember that she died! Heh. As for the Anderson’s, I truly hope Ryu can figure out that Thomas was behind a lot of the crime. I’ve always hated Thomas. And I was surprised to see that Lilith finally gave up her notions of bringing Chuck back. I loved them being together, and miss him dearly! But it will be interesting to see if Katy comes back, and if so what that does to the already crazy hood!

    Chuck would have cheated on Lilith, so she’s better off with Tsung who actually cares about her. ;) Jun died two rounds ago, I think, LOL!

  6. Oh wow, I used to LOVE Lilith, but it seems like she was just LOOKING for a reason to be emo, she found one, and now she is SO annoying. Zhao is cute though. I can’t wait to see Katy’s return though! :D

    Haha, how is she being emo? She gave up on Chuck! ;)

  7. Lilith turned out to be a much better parent than I expected her to be. :) Her character has developed along nicely, but I’m with her, I can’t believe she’s already old enough to be a mom either!

    Katy’s coming back? Oh, this is going to be delicious! :D

    I’m really enjoying Lilith, as if you can’t tell! Katy coming back is me asking for a headache, haha.

  8. Jeez Lilith, no need to get so worried about Tsung having a visit from his…half sister? Maybe they were just exchanging family photos… Well, it is a possibility, albeit a remote one in Boreal Springs

    She’s worried because as she mentioned in the last round, she doesn’t trust Gordon. ;)

  9. I’m glad Lilith gave up bringing Chuck back. Tsung is a far better husband. I’d love to see how the hood will react on Katy’s return!

    I agree completely and am still wondering whether or not I’m insane for bringing Katy back…
