Noah's Workshop

Noah scratched the top of his head as he hammered away in his workshop, well more like drawed away as he was currently working on a blueprint for a weapon he was planning on making. This is what the last few days had been like in the Cadera-Feanor-Corek home after the news of Yasha's pregnancy had been announced. They had all been nervous of course as she had been barely out of the woods from her battle on Mandalore but Asha and Theo had placated their fears with their medical expertise.

Noah was however still a nervous wreck and did what he always did when he was nervous, he retreated into his work and began hammering out a few new prototypes for his company and a few prototypes of personal weapons for himself, most of which would be piled next to a pile of similar projects that had been collected from the various times in the past things like this had happened. Little did Noah know that one of his other children, Bethany Adelaide Bethany Adelaide , was about to come to her father asking for something he would be more than willing to help her with.

Beth had been thinking. Which may or may not have been a good thing, in truth.

Sometimes the young woman had good ideas, sometimes not so much. Nonetheless, dressed in a light green spring dress, and her hair tied with a bow and bangs flowing, she skipped through the Cadera-Feanor-Corek estate. Gosh, why did they have to have such a long name... Couldn't they like, drop one or two or something.

Either way, that wasn't quite the purpose of her hunting down her father, Noah Corek Noah Corek . He was likely in his workshop, considering mom was pregnant with miracle babies (how many siblings was going to be added to her family line? She could barely keep up...) Her other mom was off... Somewhere, she wasn't really sure. Quiet, bare feet as she stopped in front of the door to the workshop. Hopefully he wasn't too busy. Or at least perhaps she could set up a time for them to talk later.

She slowly opened the door, peering her head into the workshop with her feline ears fully perked - and easily catching the sounds from the room. "Dad? Do you have a moment?"

If asked about their long family name Noah would always spout off a sentence about him and his wives being equal partners in their marriage but this was mostly just to appease Yasha and Alex, he himself would have preferred if they had all just decided on who was going to take who's name so he didn't get weird looks when he gave his legal full family name...but that was neither here nor there at the moment as he heard the door open.

Quickly swiveling in his chair Noah's face broke out in a large smile as he was treated to the sight of his eldest daughter, Bethany Adelaide Bethany Adelaide . "Of course Beth'ika. I always have time for my daughter." He quickly reached and rolled up the blueprints he had been working on, storing them away in a small filing cabinet next to his workbench, wanting to give his daughter his full and undivided attention. A thought popped into his head and he swiveled back towards her while pulling out another stool for her. "Your mothers aren't looking for me...are they?"

Beth grinned big at Noah Corek Noah Corek 's response. Whew, good. He wasn't busy! And that statement may come back to bite him. Either way, though, she was content with his reply. She slipped through the door, gently closing it as she walked over to his workbench. "Thank you," she said sheepishly as she made her way across the room. Truthfully, she was sure Noah would be fine teaching her what she was going to request. The Mando side of the family made sure she knew how to defend herself and a little bit of combat. But in truth, she mostly used the Force and had never even been in a real violent conflict.

She perked a brow, one ear twitching slightly as she slipped onto the tool. Her hands reach to the back of the stool, gripping onto it as a form of support as she leaned backwards. "Whatcha workin' on?" Beth perked a brow as her eyes glanced to the filing cabinet before she turned her attention back to him. "What? No, they aren't. I don't think so, at least." They hadn't asked her, at least. She grinned playfully, "You're in the clear. I just had a question for you."

It was when Beth grinned that Noah realized that his statement of always having time for her might come back to bite him in the shebs later on down the road, but it wasn't later on down the road it was the present and for now that statement rung true. He chuckled when she sheepishly thanked him and shook his head before grinning at her. "Beth, your my daughter you don't have to thank me for making time for you, that's kinda what I signed up for." As she sat Noah reached over and opened a small refrig on his workbench filled with a wide assortment of snacks and drinks. "Hungry or thirsty?"

When she leaned back in the stool Noah had to admit to himself that he tensed somewhat, he knew that she wasn't a child anymore but she was still HIS child and even the simplest of dangers such as her leaning back in a backless stool made him worry. His eyes followed hers to the filing cabinet and he simply shrugged. "Just some blueprints for my company, mundane things that someone your age would be bored with."

He let out a breath that he hadn't know he had been holding when she mentioned that her mothers weren't looking for him. "Good...I know how they get when I have been cooped up in here for too long." An eyebrow was raised when she mentioned asking him a question and he nodded, somewhat hesitantly. "Also as it's not about what me and your mothers get up to in our private time, sure, shoot."

"Well, I knowww, but I know you're really busy and stuff." Beth replied with a smile as she let her legs sway back and forth. "Plus with mom..." Her voice trailed off as she shook her head. Leaning forward, she put her hands on her legs and gave a quick nod. "I'd love a drink," she said with a smile. "Soda, please!"

Beth was young, but she was a growing woman. At 18, she was technically an adult. But she knew she had more growing to do, which is one reason why she tried to learn as much as she could from her dad, and her mothers. "Maybe, but I'd love to understand them someday!" She said with a little smile.

She cracked a grin, laughing at his comment. "I'll not tell them you said that," she said with a smirk. "They've been pretty busy, too," she said after a few moments.

She perked a brow at Noah Corek Noah Corek 's joke, "I wouldn't think about it," she said somewhat flatly before taking a deep breath. "Well, shooting is a good segway. So, I know you guys have taught me well in terms of self defense, and beating someone off of me, and pinching nerves and stuff. But I was hoping to learn about actually shooting a gun? I have shot some, but never really trained at all with it," She admitted somewhat sheepishly. Some Mando she was... But granted, she didn't really fit a Mando stereotype anyway.

Noah reached across the gap between the two of them and ruffled Beth's hair. "Like I said Beth'ika, no matter how busy I am I will always have time for my ad'ika." He chuckled and then reached to brush his hair back when she mentioned Yasha. "Yeah...that was a shock to say the least, a happy one but still a shock." He smiled at her request and reached into the refrig and grabbed a can of soda, plopping it down on the workbench in front of her as well as grabbing on for himself, her tended not to drink in front of the kids, bad habits and such.

He smiled at her and nodded about her seeming interest in his business. "Maybe one day I'll teach you about it. My mother was a big believer in one being able to maintain and even make their own weapons and passed that on to me, little did I know at the time I'd turn it into a living." He reached across and patted her knee in response to her smile.

He shivered at the mentioning of keeping his comments about her mothers a secret. "Yeah, I've fought in about half a dozen wars and even then the scariest things I've ever faced is your mothers angry. One at a time I can deal with but both? Eesh."

He rubbed the bridge of her nose at her reaction to his joke and shook his head. "Sorry, Junior was asking some very...personal questions about me and your mothers and babies and...well you get the picture." He leaned back on the stool at her words and rubbed his chin in thought. "I don't see a problem with teaching you about shooting though I would be remiss if I didn't I say find this intriguing. You never seemed to be interested in learning to shoot before. Fighting with a blade or your hands? Sure. Shooting? No so much. What changed your mind?"

Beth smiled, although quickly went to fix her hair after Noah Corek Noah Corek decided to ruffle it. He said that, but in truth he probably would be too busy one day. And that was fine, even if still. A shock though, was an understatement. More siblings on the way... She wasn't even sure she knew half of her family.

She gave a small nod as Noah spoke about his mother. "Sounds like a smart woman," Beth commented gleefully. Truly, even though Beth was learning more about healing and medicine, it couldn't hurt to dabble in industry - right? Engineering probably wasn't her strong suit...

Beth chuckled at his comment about her mothers and then the explanation to her joke. "I guess he's at that age," she commented with a quiet laugh. But, then asked about why she wanted to learn about shooting. "Well... I think I'm okay close up. Like, I could defend myself. But I probably won't ever be able to actually go offensive and it'd be nice to be able go pewpew if needed." Especially with the way the galaxy was now...

She glanced to him with her mismatched eyes as she gave a little shrug. "I just ask it's quiet so it doesn't hurt my ears," she admitted as she placed her hands over her feline ears.
