Aidan threw his snowball at the same time, Shaun's catching her in the arm and Aidan's on her thigh. Rosetta jumped, startled, but a moment later she laughed.
"Why you little-" She growled, stalking toward Aidan. She caught him and lifted him up, hugging him close and placing kisses on his cheek.
"Mommy!" Aidan squealed, trying to push away from her while he giggled. "Daddy made me!"
Sora smiled, nodding.
"Mom said that too." He told Cloud. He put his hand in his father's and walked with him to the rink. "Don't let go, okay?" He asked, a little unsure about this.
Aeris had come up with a custody agreement shortly after moving out of Cloud's house. Her lawyer had tried to go at Cloud's with a full out attack, but in the end she just approached Cloud herself and cut the lawyers out of it. Cloud had Sora every weekend, which included dropping him off at school on Monday mornings, and a full week every third week of the month. Aeris had him the other days, which she figured was as 50/50 they could get. She split holidays with him evenly, but she was flexible about it. If Sora wanted to stay an extra night at Cloud's sometimes, she didn't fuss about that either. Whenever his parents were meeting for a drop-off though, Sora got sad. It would clear up a few hours later, just as it was lifting now, but it happened every time.
A woman passed them then, the instructor of the youth hockey team. She had crystal blue eyes, and long black hair. Aeris had spoken with her before about possibly enrolling Sora into the team, so she recognized him and slowed to a stop.
"Hey, Sora right?" She asked, and he nodded. "And you must be his father. He looks just like you!" She said to Cloud.
"Hi Ms. Evelyn." He said.
