There was a rising feeling in her chest, it welled up and begged to be let out. A frustration, only instead of being given as criticisms through a rigid image of what she had yearned to be in the past it was something she wanted the satisfaction of genuine release of her ire and frustrations through venomous words. The sharp and antagonistic words, inviting a conflict. No, baiting a conflict only to immediately be recinded and not want to accept the fruits which were results of the seeds she had just so freshly laid out.
"Neither do I, alas that is how it was for me. I will endeavour not to subject you to the same experience I got when you returned, a weird dude in tow."
Was it said through gritted teeth and antagonistically? A little. Yugiri didn't think it was incorrect though. She wasn't the type to just allow someone to suggest things or antagonise her and then pull back. The next words made her actually just pause. Dumbfounded by what she just heard as they rang in her head.
If I'm being honest: yes, I do think you would just wait around for death.
The audacity. From Chidori it angered her even more, a headache that came from her. Wearing at her patience. The presumptious nature in which she came to these conclusions. It was not enough to just sit there on the bed staring at her, she couldn't tell if the image of her slapping Chidori was a mental image or real but the small taste of blood from biting at her teeth in restraint did remind her. The fact that Chidori wasn't on the ground injured told her the answer.
"Problems don't fix themselves. I agree."
She muttered to herself after Chidori had gone, not exactly referring to herself though. Yugiri stood up and sighed, pondering what Rio was up to these days and how she coped without punching someone or something.
The time between Chidori leaving and returning though was enough for Yugiri to return to a sense of calm, forced as it was. It was more akin to her just trying to remember how she acted as a noble and dealing with frustrating nobles. Back when her life was stressful trying to shoulder everything and do everything she could to help her family. It wasn't like her mistakes had been done maliciously or out of spite.
Yugiri took the child tentatively. It wasn't something she was used to but she held Nakano securely. She had not expected them to be living together, that sounded strange. Not just that but uncomfortable to imagine, she was sleeping with retainer(?) girls while her ex-boyfriend was under the same roof as her? She kind of just stared at Chidori with a bit of concern while holding the sleeping baby against her front.
"Can they walk?"
From anyone else it was a weird question, obviously Yugiri meant it in a more personal to her way. She'd hate if they got to live their lives pitied for some kind of deficit they were born with.

"Hehe, about that... It's a bit early for them to be walking. Nakano has started crawling, Yushiro is still a bit reluctant to trying anything new. But I get what you mean, and they're fine at the moment." Chidori had a flash back to memories of Yugiri back when they were children. It was a shame that she was born that way, but Yugiri has seemed to overcome that hurdle, albeit with some odd methods.
"I think. Where Nakano seems like a go-getter and a quick learner, Yushiro is a quiet guy who follows his sister around. He gives me Rio vibes, where he lets Nakano walk all over him but would still be the first one to protect her. It's adorable, however concering. It's likely he'll need some more attention later on, but right now he's still trying to form a personality that is his own so I let him be him."
As Chidori spoke, Nakano began to stir. When her eyes opened, Nakano stared at her aunt with very curious eyes. There was a tint of fear in there, but mainly curiosity. Slowly, her small hands had reached out to grab at Yugiri's hair, being just out of reach.
"I think she likes you."
