The morning breeze came in carrying the warm scents of the sea.  Her group had expanded from more than a small camp of refugees, slaves, or warriors joining for Merrze's cause. Now they were forming into a proper city, the organization and work efforts of the tribes, along with the sheer number of ex-slaves and ready to work people. The dawn had barely been there but the stalls were ready, people were already starting to build houses of lumber provided from the Djinn Buer. The people were excited, over the hill they expanded a bay had been discovered, they were building their city along the mountain, down to the ocean to form a larger populace center, to expand their work efforts.

Different faces of different origins began to paint the country but it only brought out a sense of pride from Merrze. More pride would come from her, she had sent for her daughter Menat to be to join them in Meridia. She'd get the chance to meet her baby brother Merlin, the permission-haired child would coo in her arms.

She stood before the meeting hall, it was where she slept as well. She wondered how long till her daughter would arrive, she was young so her caretaker should've been coming with her. Thoughts bubbled up into anxiety as she worried, she hadn't seen the child since she had to leave it years ago. It was safe now, she had a place for them now. The people who were hunting Merrze wouldn't be able to hurt her here. Her family could be together, she could nurture them while leading the nation.

Clamor would fill the air as more and more people started to fill in the make-shift streets of gravel that were made to guide the people between the current residential and business districts that were formed in order to keep the people more maintained. They'd kept up a decent source of food supply but currently, Merrze had more to do, she still had to make the Meridian Garden, subsidized business, and further formally train her military.

She shook the thoughts from her head, she had plans for those. Today was a joyous day, the people were happy, good things were to come. The fanalis wanted to celebrate of all things. All she would need is Menat.

To say Menat was awestruck would be an understatement. As she walked through what she had originally thought to be wide, far open empty grasslands was, in fact, what looked like the beginnings of a village. More people than she could count seemed to be bustling all around her, working on things such as houses or roads. The natural beauty of the area was already breathtaking but the added energy and over-all general kindness the people seemed to show each other just made it a truly amazing sight. A sharp pat to the middle of her back broke Menat of her awed daze, bringing her to turn her attention to Bast beside her.

The older Fanalis, with the carpet rolled up and strapped to her back, in addition to Menat's Stinger, gave her a gentle smile. "Well, c'mon. We've got an appointment to keep." Ever mysterious Bast began to walk along ahead of her young charge. She knew exactly why they were here. Menat's mother had finally contacted her about reuniting with her daughter and it had come down to Bast to make it happen. The news that Merrze had been working to build her own country was actually something surprising to the woman, even more so when it was stated that the country would be rooted in the plains of the Mainlands.

Like Menat Bast was also impressed by the hard working nature of the followers Merrze had apparently gathered. Such progress in such a span of time was nothing less after all. Guiding the child through the makeshift streets to the agreed meeting point she halted once Merrze was in sight. "Alright kid. Ready?"

When the two stopped Menat stood transfixed on the woman sitting before them. There was something about her that made her chest tighten, but she couldn't place it. The woman was radiant. Stunningly beautiful. The baby in her arms helped her give off a motherly kind of aura. Menat couldn't move, standing like a statue as she stared at the woman before her, completely silent.

She was surprised, to say the least when she saw Menat standing before her with Bast. She knew it was likely she'd be bringing her daughter here. It was still odd for her, to see her daughter, what should've been her little toddler looking as she'd spent a decade without her mother. With a quick step, she would flurry her way over to the pair. Her step and heart both pushing forth, yearning to sate her curiosity and urge to reunite with her child. Confusion filled her mind, yearning tugged her forth as the heaviness weighed on her. Stopping abruptly before the pair, her right foot leading to get closer but she stopped for a second. She took a breath before giving her a smile, handing off the baby Merlin to Bast for a moment.

The weight of Merrze would be felt as she placed a hand on Menat's face. "My sweet cub, I'm sorry you had to wait so long to come and see me." Her face held back it's sadness, her lips curling to form her warm smile adorned with her sharp teeth. Her urge to cry would furrow in her brow as she would start to speak to again. Her voice a bittersweet song inviting her daughter into the budding city. "The baby right there is your baby brother Merlin, he's only half a year old, he got here about a month ago around when I sent for you both." She didn't want to overload her so she split it up. "Momma's been very unsafe for a long time, your Papa and I have had to deal with a lot of bad people, especially the people hunting for me." She knew Bast had very likely known what had happened to Endolf, she wasn't sure if it had been explained to her yet. "Well Daddy is gone to a different place right now, he won't be able to join us but we're safe now, it's safe here and now we can be together, we can make things better in other places too." The lioness would finish the speech there, now wasn't the time to try to inspire or even teach Menat, they needed to just connect.

A warm embrace would come from Merrze, welcoming the child into her arms. She knew she couldn't make up for it all, she couldn't make up for being so far away from her children. She didn't want to lose another though, she couldn't, but she had to make the world better for them. She knew they would make it even better. Looking upon Menat she could already see, the child looked a lot like Merrze, but she had her fathers ferocity in her looks. She definitely had Endy's edge by the looks of it. It gave her a smile to be reminded of him, it had a been a moment since his passing and her life had been moving so fast-paced.

Menat would need to process it all, so she'd look at both Bast, and her child and would as warm as the sun ask them "How about we go inside, I whip us up some breakfast and then give you a tour of the city?"

Everything the woman said to Menat was like another stone slamming into her, right from referring to the girl as her "sweet cub" right up to where she addressed herself as her "Momma". Everything after that kind of ended up getting tuned out as just the fact that this woman in front of her was her mother and the child in her arms was Menat's infant brother left the girl far too shellshocked to focus after that point. She could only simply stand there, dumbstruck, as she attempted to absorb the biggest shock first.

THIS was her mother.

When the woman, her mother, finished talking, following a brief one-armed hug, Menat could only turn her head to look at the woman who had essentially raised her for the past several years. Bast seemed to understand what the look she was receiving meant clear as day. "Yes Menat. We're here cause you're finally able to be with your mother." Bast explained. With a light pat on Menat's back Bast urged the girl to pay attention to her mother instead of her. "It wasn't going to be a surprise if I told you on the way after all. Right?"

Silence. Following Bast's suggestion Menat turned her attention back to Merrze. She really had no idea what to say, let alone do, at that moment. Two, three, moments passed and the first sound of any kind came from Menat in the form of a soft sniffling. Her eyes began to water as tears built up as she looked at the beautiful woman in front of her. "M-MAMA!" She cried out loud, throwing herself around her mother's hips.

She'd enjoy the embrace, using both her arms to pull her child in properly. She wanted the feeling of comfort, that reassuring blanket of a mothers grace to wrap around her child. It was a projection of her apology for how long she'd actually been gone. The desolate void which dragged from her yearning to have her children now dissipated. The tension freeing from her arms only brought her daughter in closer as Merrze would lift the child. She'd lost her mom, she'd lost her had, she'd lost so much now that this was in her arms the whole world would never leave the grasp of this gracious fanalis.

Their burning blood was more than just a passion of anger, or aching desire to burst out in destruction. It was the warm guiding force of love, it was the embrace of friends and family. It would be confusing were to go with her child in her current state. She didn't care, she regretted missing the younger years with her daughter. It wouldn't make up for it any of it, not to Merrze. She knew it was worth it in the long run, she did what she needed. Now she was going to connect with her family, to build a place for them further, to give them a chance to build their own paths, to provide support on their journey.

The white lioness would break from the iron-tight embrace once they had managed to connect through the language of touch. Her hands would leave gently, holding around to keep the child around her. She wasn't sure where to really go. She would kiss Menat on the forehead and motion for Bast to come closer while she talked to them all. "I don't wanna overload you too much right now, we can go relax or do whatever you want. Even if you wanna just stay here for a moment I just need to know what you want Menat, I'm just happy to have you here with my darling."

With her words out she'd give the chance for either her child or Bast to speak. She knew she wouldn't force the caretaker or rather fighter hold Merlin any longer than she wanted to, but would wait till both her and Menat seemed good. The lioness would purr, there was a bustling nation out before them, but the world was before Merrze.

For the first time in her life Menat found someone performing the act of placing a kiss on her forehead. It made her giggle slightly, the tears no longer welling up in her eyes and her joyful crying now having passed. It was such an odd sensation for the young girl. But she didn't exactly mind it, especially if it was actually her mother performing the action. As she continued to hold her mother by her shapely hips, Bast now in possession of what she was told was her younger brother, she simply took in the moment as Merrze made her suggestions of what she'd like to do.

However before Menat could offer an answer, her stomach spoke for her in the form of a loud gurgling rumble. The girl grew embarrassed that such an important moment would be ruined in such a way, Bast was more than willing to laugh out at the girl. A mistake that she quickly paid for as Merlin began to cry in her arms. Panicking the older woman began doing her best to calm down the infant, eventually succeeding by using the same method she had used on Menat when she was still a baby. "S-sorry about that." Bast humbly apologized. Red faced Menat turned to Bast. "I guess I'm hungy sis. Can we eat now?" She asked her caretaker, out of both habit and just generally from how she was raised currently.

Merrze would take the child from Bast, holding the child tenderly. As the white lioness would smile at both of her children she would offer another arm in to hold hands with Menat. They could form a chain if Bast grabbed her other hand. She wanted to welcome them inside her home, leading the way up to the house in which she had sprinted from. She would guide the way up to the meeting house, and place of residence for her. It was odd to have a log house in the plains, but that was the benefits of being able to control the forces of Nature.

"Come on, I'll make us some nice breakfast, I have a good idea of what to cook! She had some fresh boar, she'd fry some of its bellies up, with some peppers, garlic, and onions to season it, served with sweetbread. It was dish she enjoyed often on her weekends, it would be something that all of them could enjoy, her bread was already baked all she would need to do was reheat it. She'd give them all a chance to look around the small house if, there was a table area in the center, it seemed to be the eating area and a place for discussing official matters. Near the back of the cabin was a small open area. There was a hearth and oven built-in, she had made her own, it's where she would head. While she walked over there she'd go past a hall which would lead down to a bedroom decorated in red, it seemed as if the furniture was being installed still, it was Merrze's room.

While their eyes might wander around the house, the crackling of oils, the rich aromatic smells of the peppers burned the air, with the onions and garlic warming the smell, the savoriness becoming amplified and accentuated by the rich aromas of the pork would waft through the air. The pork was frying in a skillet that she was rolling over the fire pit, in the even a small fire to produce heat was started. In a moment she would plate a couple of pieces of the pork belly, as she danced to place the bread to warm in the oven, and waltzing back over to cook more of the delectable meats.
