She Says She Loves Me, But I Know She’s a Liar

The Cosmos:
{Heather fixes her skirt and her hair, laces her shirt back up and looks at Seth} What are you doing Seth?
The Universe:
{Seth puts himself back together} We’re talking about Bree now, right?
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Yeah. You know I love you.. but Christ.. Movin’ her in.. it’s *her* all over again.
The Universe:
{Seth walks over to Heather} Don’t give me shit, babe. Pat me on the back and tell me what a good boy I am for not proposing.
The Universe:
{Seth looks at her} I mean, that’s progress at least, right?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Yeah it’s progress.. but Jesus.. there’s a castle full of women you *haven’t* even seen yet and you’re movin’ in Bree. The king’s reject?
The Universe:
{Seth shakes his head} Now that’s just uncalled for.


The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him} I’m not being shitty Seth. You know that. I remember your wife. What she was like what you want in a wife.. and frankly Bree ain’t it Seth. Christ, she got with you and still had Loch on her.
The Universe:
{Seth places his hands on his hips, nods} I’m not actually looking for a wife anymore, Heather.
The Universe:
{Seth looks at her} And Hera had those puppies when she did all on her own.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Seth} What does that have to do with it?
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} Hera? Only everything. I’m saying I didn’t somehow make her have the puppies to lock Bree in or anything. That was just… sheer fucking coincidence.
The Universe:
{Seth shakes his head} As for the wife, she was just a means to an end.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} I didn’t think the puppies had anything to do with it, Seth. I’m saying..take a step back and look at what’s going on. You aren’t looking for a wife.. yet you moved Bree in immediately. SO what’s Bree?
The Universe:
{Seth looks at Heather} I guess you could qualify her as an impulse buy.
The Cosmos:
{ Heather looks at him} What are you going to do when she decides she doesn’t like the idea of you fucking me.

The Universe:
{Seth walks over and sits on the bed} I’m not gonna do shit.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} You’re gonna just keep on the way we’re goin’?
The Universe:
{Seth leans back on his elbows} It’s in my job description. And this one can’t say she didn’t know what I am.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Let me ask you this… What would you do if I said I didn’t want *you* fucking her while you’re in my herd?
The Universe:
{Seth looks at her} Her or anyone?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shrugs} *Her*.
The Universe:
{Seth nods} So why would you single her out?
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him} Because she’s shown she will..on a whim get with whoever is willing to plug that hole. And if that’s the case she could be at least a carrier of things Seth.
The Universe:
{Seth nods} And if she is, me *and* Loch probably already have whatever it is *and* you already walked in here and acted like she wasn’t an issue. {stands, walks over to her, takes her face in his hands, looks down at her, quietly} You do that *now* and it’s not gonna look good, baby. *Now* you have to wait for her to do something to warrant that or *you’re* gonna look bad.

The Cosmos:
{Heather looks up at him, quietly} Do you want that out?
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} *Now* she thinks to ask me that.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Baby, if you want it.. it’s easy enough to make it happen.
The Universe:
{Seth takes a breath, quietly} Using the “carrier” excuse will freak everyone out and Jenna will insist on all these tests which won’t be reliable or trusted because she can change the makeup of her blood. So if you use that one, you’ll just cause a panic. And that’s also something that needed to be done *before* you fed from me. Now, don’t get me wrong. I like Bree. But I don’t think this is going to work *because* she and I are both so impulsive. And I really don’t think I’m ready for another wife. I don’t want to hurt her, but.. we also barely know each other. She doesn’t even know my last name and I don’t know hers. In fact.. there is extremely little I do know about her and vice versa.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Okay. So let’s figure out a way to get you out of this mess.
The Universe:
{Seth shakes his head} It was one of those things that *seemed* like a good idea at the time. And she probably thought so, too. {looks at her} And I’m not saying I don’t want to keep seeing her. I just think we need to dial it back a few notches and actually get to know each other.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} So tell her that or let me be the bad guy and I’ll come up with something. {Smiles wickedly} Like due to your experience with your wife you aren’t allowed to live with anyone for a while and then you have to get permission from the king.. or some shit like that.
The Universe:
{Seth nods, quietly} If I can do this without being the asshole and completely fucking everything between us beyond repair, that would be my preferred option. I mean, hell, she might even be relieved. But if *I* say it, she’s going to be too busy feeling rejected to feel anything *else* even if she *is* relieved.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles, quietly} This is like one of those Vegas weddings where the happy couple wakes up the next day and realizes they’re married to the stranger lying next to them. Only without the rings this time.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Oh she’s going to be…hurt either way.. but doing it this way gives you the option of at least hitting her with ” but I like you so much that everything else just went out of my head.”
The Universe:
{Seth nods} Which actually wouldn’t be all that far from the truth.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs softly} Okay.. So I’ll hit her with that. then I’ll fill Genja in on the “king’s decree”.
The Universe:
{Seth nods} Maybe we should argue about it loudly for good measure.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} Yes we should. {leans up and kisses him}
The Universe:
{Seth kisses her back, pushing his fingers into her hair}
The Cosmos:
{Heather grins} By the way.. they think Anya got a hold of you because she caught you fuckin’ me.
The Cosmos:
{Heather whispers against his lips}
The Universe:
{Seth blinks, pulls back and looks at her, arches a brow} Seriously?
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods}
The Universe:
{Seth laughs} Okay. {smiles} And you told them that *why*?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} It started off as me tryin’ to make Loch feel better about you and Bree.
The Universe:
{Seth arches a brow again} Why doesn’t Loch feel good about me and Bree?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} He was just shocked about the suddenness.
The Universe:
{Seth nods} I think everyone at breakfast was, too.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} Oh, wait. *That* might have had something to do with them thinking she was being “thrown” to us for punishment.
The Cosmos:
{Heather grins wickedly} Nope *that* was me too.
The Universe:
{Seth laughs, nods} I heard. Morose told us.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles, puts her hands on either side of his, puts one knee on the bed between his and leans forward kissing him again, lightly} The *only* thing I regret about that was not seeing the actual fall out when we weren’t around.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles again} I think people were too stunned to react so you didn’t really miss much. {after kissing her back}
The Cosmos:
{Heather shrugs} Damn. Guess they’ll have to get used to that. {grins} Various humans, missing from the table.
The Universe:
{Seth laughs} Baby, you should’ve heard us talking about it. We were actually going to dress up for the part and drag Bree out of breakfast.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} Oh.. *that* I would have loved to see. The *talk* would have been great.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} Yeah, the only one that wasn’t *really* that into it was Alexei, but you know how he is.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods smiling} Yes.. I do. He has to keep up appearances. He can’t have the humans afraid of him.
The Universe:
{Seth nods} Exactly. Sucks to be him.
The Cosmos:
{Heather steps back} Shall we go deal with your little problem?
The Universe:
{Seth nods, letting her go} Yeah, I guess so.
The Universe:
{Seth walks toward the door} But seriously, if you want Harley Junior, he’s yours. I’ll deal with Jace.
The Universe:
{Seth looks over at her} I’ll just make him forget we ever had the conversation.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Of course I want him, and I’ll deal with Jace. {smiles} you know I’m always up for a fight with him and it’s been a while. Do you want me to take him now? Loch can handle the daily feedings.
The Universe:
{Seth nods} Take him when you’re ready. He’s the biggest one in the litter so he should be fine. The question is, do *you* want Loch taking care of the daily feedings? They’ll end up pretty attached to each other.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at Seth} Not if I ghoul him. *now*.
The Universe:
{Seth arches a brow} Junior or Loch?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Junior. Though I am considering Loch.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} So you like him.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} I do. He’s confident and cocky. He’s got an attitude, and would probably not think twice about telling even Genja he was wrong. {shrugs} He fucks like it’s going to be his last and doesn’t seem to get overly attached. {looks at him} I’m going to be watching this one. He reminds me a lot of Jace only without the temper.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} I see a lot more differences than that, babe. Start with ambition, move on to a somewhat higher degree of intelligence and therefore cunning and no, I’m not calling Jace stupid. I *am* saying though that Jace is.. uncomplicated. Musicians are always a lot more complex than just your stereotypical bad boy.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him and smiles, leans back against the door} So you see that drive too? Jace *is* simple and easy to read and it’s one of the things I love about him.
The Universe:
{Seth nods} It’s hard to miss, baby. And everything I’ve seen and heard says his ego’s probably bigger than is good for him, but he wears it well and he’s earned every bit of it.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} Give that ego to anyone else, and they’d be getting punched in the face *daily*.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Totally. Well you saw what happened when I grabbed him from the cell. How many others do you think would have just been like “Okay, we’ll just go with it”?
The Universe:
{Seth nods} The first morning he walked into the dining room like he owned it and asked *everyone* if they were feeling more human. Even then he was playing to the audience.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} And I’m pretty sure *no* one else would’ve risen to your challenge right then and there like that.
The Universe:
{Seth laughs} Well, except maybe Jace.
The Cosmos:
{Heather grins} Oh Jace totally would have. That’s the thing about Loch. Even when he’s just hangin’ out, you can tell he’s thinkin’ about the next big show. You know. That drive and ambition, I have no doubt he would have made it.
The Universe:
{Seth nods} I have no doubt he’s gonna be the “big thing” here. Morose actually has some competition.
The Universe:
{Seth looks at her} And you wouldn’t think, *looking* at Loch, that he could be competition for *Morose*, yanno?
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} Loch doesn’t make the girls wet just walking into the room, but he makes sure they’re wet by the time he walks out.
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} Seriously.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Dude I have to ask you… because it’s buggin’ the hell outta me. Why?
The Universe:
{Seth looks at her} Why what?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} Didn’t you make her shower before you hit that?
The Universe:
{Seth laughs} Babe. I worked in *porn*. {smiles} After your third gang-bang, you kinda just say “fuck it”.
The Universe:
{Seth shrugs} And how is it different than the orgies, really?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Yeah.. okay.. I can see it. True. But you’re gonna have to …{grins} No.. no you’re not.
The Universe:
{Seth looks at her curiously} Have to what?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} Apparently *that’s* been a topic of discussion and makes her even more of a whore.. for getting with you while she was still wet from Loch.
The Universe:
{Seth nods} Not that it’s any of their business, but yeah, okay. I can see it. Most of the guys probably think that, too, but not one of those boys would’ve turned her down.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} Except maybe Loch.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} Only because he hit that already and he was there first.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} I see him turning it down if he *wasn’t* there first.
The Cosmos:
{Heather arches her brow} Why’s that?
The Universe:
{Seth laughs} I’m talking about if she went from, say, me to him in that.. condition.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} Oh.. totally. Either that or stopping at the nearest shower.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles, nods} Exactly.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks at him, quietly} You do realize I thought I might have to kill her right?
The Universe:
{Seth arches a brow, his smile fading} *Why*?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shrugs} *Both* my guys? *really*? I was starting to take it personal.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} Really? I’d think you’d take it as a compliment.
The Cosmos:
{Heather arches her brow, smiles} If she’d been human I might’ve. She’s a ghoul and knows better than that.
The Universe:
{Seth nods} Except she didn’t know I was yours. And I seriously doubt she was thinking about much beyond the belt strapped around her wrist when Loch had at her.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} Still. Come on. Let’s do this.
The Universe:
{Seth nods} Let me know if you do make Loch a ghoul. I’d be interested in seeing what he did with it. {opens the bedroom door and walks back out into the main room}
