june 30th ||| earthquake plot ||| @Anna ||| for lu

The tremors had been felt for days leading up to the morning of June 30th and Laelius, like most, had ignored them. While not a common thing, they happened enough not to alarm most of the citizens of Rome and the city went about its business as it always did. Life just went on, and for him that meant the evening was spent with his family and then to bed that night, with his wife snuggled up next to them once they were done with their evening work. Which to the normal Roman of their ilk would be a foreign concept for husband and wife to sleep in the same bed together. Most had their own rooms, but they had both learned early that they slept better together.

In his sleepy state, as the tremors started even harder that early early morning, he wasn't sure what was going on why the bed was moving, but as he came to at the crashing sound of vases his mind registered what was happening loud and clearly. Earthquake. A bad one at that from the feels of it. The body slaves were already stumbling awake, "Lucretia" he said, shaking his wife to wake her up. Knowing she was a deep sleeper, "Baby, come on, we got to get the children and get to safety, There's an earthquake," He spoke a little louder, nodding to the two slaves to leave the room and wake the rest off the household, though by the shouts outside, he could tell they were already awake.

Lucretia was having such nice dreams before the world began to shake things up for all of the city. Frolicking in meadows with her husband, among other things,  as they took their carnal pleasures from each other had brought a smile to her slumbering face as she snuggled up to the warmth she was accustom to. He spoke her name just as his dream self did, in sync with each other, and her dream self laughed merrily as her smile widened. Before her dream self paused at the next words ... that didn't match what his lip was saying. Earthquake? What earthquake The ground was stable, was it not? Finally the forces of him shaking her vanished the dreams enough for her to wake up and half realize something bad happening. 

"Whhhhaaadyamean, earthquake? We were just in a meadow ..." she mumbled out as she was still under the sleep god's control, wanting nothing more to plant her face back into the pillows and go back to sleep. There was crashing and shouts and she finally set up just as a vase - a wedding gift perhaps - crashed from the display it was on and she realized that there was indeed a very real earthquake going on and she backed into him as she watched things rattle off tables. "Oh fuck.... Laelius! " She said before looking back at him, "the children! Come on! " She then said, scooting out of bed to flee the bedroom to go find her children, without a stitch of clothing on as she truly wasn't thinking about it before pausing and turning back, grabbing a sheet to wrap around her as she then exited, not wanting to wait a moment longer to get to them.
