Too Late to Apologize

The Universe:
{Aiden sits at the same table he did the morning before with Samuel, Brennan, David, Loch, Christopher and Conrad}
The Universe:
{Tristan, Akhiro, Van, Ethan, and Ro sit at another table}
The Universe:
{with Constantine and Pope}
The Universe:
{And Cameron}
The Universe:
{Alexei sits with Jace, Gabe who’s on his laptop and Seth}
The Universe:
{Aaron sits near but not really with Aiden’s group}
The Universe:
{David watches Seth eat, whispers to Loch} I wonder if that’s *real* bacon on his plate.
The Cosmos:
{Bree sits with Seth, reaches over and plucks a piece of bacon off his plate, smiles at him}
The Universe:
{Loch glances over, whispers to David} Here’s hopin’.


The Cosmos:
{Aubrey sits at the table with Aiden and company, along with Hannah, Nay, Izzy and Nikki}
The Universe:
{Seth smiles at Bree, taking a piece himself}
The Universe:
{the rumor/gossip mill is churning throughout the room}
The Universe:
{Ryan sits with Devon and Ren near Van’s table}
The Cosmos:
{Ciara and Taryn sit at the same table they did yesterday with Em, Kat and Saige}
The Universe:
{Christopher looks over at Cameron} Remind me to check the library for audio books.
The Universe:
{Cameron nods, taking a sip of his coffee} Don’t like reading?
The Cosmos:
{Siobhan and Hayden sit at the same table with Alexei}
The Universe:
{Christopher smiles, shakes his head} It’s not for me. It’s so Summer has something to listen to while she’s… incapacitated. I promised her I’d play for her, but now that we’re working and I can’t, I figured audio books would be good. Give her something interesting to fill the silence with.
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie sits at a table alone, working on a tablet, glances over at Christopher} I have a bunch of them, in the library.
The Universe:
{Van smiles at Christopher} That’s a really good idea.
The Universe:
{Christopher smiles at Van} Thanks. Ro used to do it for me. {nods to Bonnie} Cool. I’ll check ’em out.
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie smiles} I’ve actually got them cataloged on my tablet if you want I can send the list to you, once the intranet it up and running.
The Universe:
{Gabe, whose eyes are plastered to his laptop screen} Send it to me. I’ll print it and post it somewhere. Or.. everywhere.
The Cosmos:
{Joey walks in and grabs food and goes to the table with Seth and Bree, sits and starts eating}
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie nods} You got it Gabe.
The Cosmos:
{Shay walks in and sits next to Samuel, the scars on her arms still visible but not nearly as angry as they were last night, reaches for the coffee pitcher that Camille and Lia have seen is on every table, pours a cup and downs it, as Mia comes in wearing her puppy and feeding it}
The Universe:
{Samuel looks at Shay, smiles} How ya feelin’ this mornin’?
The Universe:
{all the boys look at Shay, except Aaron whose pretending to listen to his iPod}
The Universe:
{Jace shakes his head} I can’t believe she got *crucified* and Lucien wasn’t there to appreciate the symbolism.
The Cosmos:
{Shay looks at Samuel, shrugs} Better than I was last night.. {smiles} I don’t want to kill her anymore.
The Universe:
{Samuel smiles} Well, that’s good news for her, then.
The Cosmos:
{Shay nods} It is considering she could have totally ruined me.
The Universe:
{Morose walks in, his iPod in one ear, humming along with “Your Call”, looks around at all the new people he didn’t see the night before, turns off his iPod and takes out the single ear bud, smiles, to *everyone*} What’s up?
The Cosmos:
{The girls that didn’t see him last night look up and blink amid whispers of “who’s that?” and “where’d he come from?” “wow’s” and “Oh my gods”}
The Universe:
{the boys look over, Ryan smiles} Hey, Morose. {Ro looks at Ryan} Is *that*… {Ryan nods} Yeah. {Ro smiles} Awesome.
The Cosmos:
(stick eden and Ava in at a table somewhere)
The Universe:
{Gabe glances over} I guess two days late is better than nothing. Did you remember the list?
The Universe:
{Morose smiles broadly as he walks over to the ghoul table} Um.. yeah. I remembered it. {looks at the people he hasn’t met} I’m Morose. Sorrow’s son.
The Cosmos:
{Saige smiles} Hi Morose, what’s up?
The Universe:
{Gabe sighs, nods, looks back at his screen} When are you going *back* to actually get everything.
The Universe:
{Morose smiles at Saige} You tell me, gorgeous. {to Gabe} Probably after breakfast.
The Cosmos:
{Saige smiles again} Where’re you going?
The Universe:
{Morose smiles} Gabe gave me a list of stuff he needed me to pick up while I was in town that I did actually remember. About five seconds ago.
The Cosmos:
{Sang bounces in} Morn…{stops mid word seeing Morose} Ing… {bounces over to the buffet table, grabs coffee, beams as she bounces over to Morose} Hi I’m Sang.. Damien’s human and {smiles} wow you’re cute.
The Universe:
{Morose smiles at Sang} I’m Morose, Sorrow’s son and if you weren’t Damien’s human, we could be *really* cute together.
The Universe:
{Aiden looks at Morose, arches a brow}
The Cosmos:
{Sang grins} We can still be cute together as long as it’s g rated cute .
The Universe:
{Conrad, Christopher, Van, Tristan, Ethan and Brennan laugh at the back and forth)
The Universe:
{Morose smiles broadly} Yeah, I’m not real good at G ratings.
The Cosmos:
{Sang grins} Sucks to be you. Those are some of the most fun.
The Universe:
{Gabe looks at Sang} I seriously doubt it sucks to be Morose.
The Universe:
{Morose laughs} I’m pretty sure I’m not missing out on “fun”, but thanks.
The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles} Does if he can’t have clean fun. {grins at Gabe} You know like video games.
The Universe:
{Gabe smiles} He games.
The Universe:
{Morose smiles at Sang} I said I wasn’t *good* at G ratings. I didn’t say they were impossible.
The Cosmos:
{Sang blinks and smiles} Cool. You’ll have to play with Damien and me sometime.
The Universe:
{Jace smirks} Yeah, because the GTA series is *so* clean.
The Universe:
{Gabe looks at Jace} Dude… you don’t *have* to use the dildo as a weapon. You *can* just walk right by it.
The Cosmos:
{Sang who’s still literally bouncing on her toes, looks at Jace, smiles}
The Universe:
{Jace smiles} Yeah, Gabe, but if you did that, you’d never get *any* action.
The Cosmos:
{Sang nods at Jace} What he said.
The Universe:
{Gabe smiles} We’ll let you believe that.
The Universe:
{Morose looks at Jace} I don’t know. I heard he got plenty of action yesterday. When was the last time *you* got laid, Jace? Because I’d bet it wasn’t *all* day, *yesterday*.
The Universe:
{Jace flips off Morose} Some of us actually have to *work*.
The Cosmos:
{Saige looks at Gabe and smiles}
The Universe:
{Gabe looks at Jace} Yeah, because I *don’t* do that every waking moment. Just because I’m staring at a screen and not digging a ditch, doesn’t mean I’m not *working*, so fuck off.
The Cosmos:
{Mia holds the bottle with one hand and munches toast with her fingers with the other}
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Gabe} Yeah, I’m *still* tryin’ to figure out what it is you actually *do* around here.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Jace} You would not understand if he told you. And no, I am not saying you are stupid. I am saying it is *that* technical.
The Universe:
{Gabe shakes his head, goes back to his laptop} Yeah. *Wicked* technical. Open your laptop, Jace.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Gabe} I didn’t bring my laptop.
The Universe:
{Gabe nods} You’re gonna wish you did.
The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles at Gabe} I have mine. {shrugs out of the backpack she’s wearing}
The Universe:
{Gabe looks at Sang, smiles} I knew you would.
The Universe:
{Jace frowns, gets up and heads out of the room}
The Universe:
{Gabe looks over when Jace leaves, smiles} Ass.
The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles} He went to get his lap top didn’t he?
The Universe:
{Seth looks at Gabe} What’d you do?
The Universe:
{Gabe smiles at Sang} Yes, he is. {looks at Seth} Partitioned his hard drive, created a new drive on said partition, installed a screen saver that flashes Disney porn and plays “it’s a small world” over and over and will kick in every time he turns it on. Then I hid the new drive so he can’t find it to uninstall it. *If* he manages to get that far. I also changed the administrator password to “I eat cock”.
The Cosmos:
{Ava stands and walks over to Morose, very softly} Hi Morose, son of Sorrow, I’m Ava.
The Cosmos:
{Sang cracks up} He’s gonna *kill* you.
The Universe:
{the boys crack up, Morose smiles at Ava} Hi, Ava. You’re the king’s human.
The Cosmos:
{Ava smiles and nods, softly} I am. One of them.
The Universe:
{Gabe smiles at Sang} It won’t be the first time.
The Universe:
{Morose nods} Eden being the other. It’s nice to meet you.
The Cosmos:
{Ava laughs} Yes, Eden and I.. as are Nay and Siobhan.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles, shakes his head, to Gabe} You may want a head start.
The Cosmos:
{Sang blurts} So what about that *were*wolf? Holy *shit* he almost ate Eden and Ciara.
The Universe:
{Morose smiles again when she laughs} Yeah, but they’re just… filler.. from what I hear.
The Cosmos:
{Ava frowns} Who told you *that*?
The Universe:
{Gabe nods to Alexei, stands gathering his laptop and stuff} Yeah. I probably really do. I’ll be in the observation tower. {heads out before Jace can get back}
The Universe:
{Morose sighs, looks at Saige} Guess I’m gonna be hitting that quota again today. {looks at Ava} So, I’m a tattoo artist which means if anyone wants any new ink or help with old ink, they should come see me.
The Cosmos:
{Saige shakes her head at Morose and smiles brightly}
The Cosmos:
{Ava nods and grins} Yes, please.
The Universe:
{Loch watches the room, taking a sip of his coffee}
The Universe:
{Morose smiles, relieved } Cool. Any ideas on what you want done?

The Cosmos:
{Sang bounces over and sits at an empty place at one of the tables}
The Cosmos:
{Saige looks at Loch and smiles}
The Cosmos:
{Ava shakes her head} No.. Not really.
The Universe:
{Loch watches Saige for a second, smiles and shakes his head}
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie also looks over at Loch smiles and whispers} He’s new.
The Universe:
{Morose nods} Well.. I can probably help with that, too.
The Cosmos:
{Ava smiles} Cool.. something that won’t make Genja angry.
The Universe:
{Morose smiles} *That* won’t be a problem. Maybe even a tiny crown on your hip.
The Cosmos:
{Ava smiles and nods} Something like that.. {grins} Oh.. that’s a great idea. He’ll probably end up wanting Eden stamped too.
The Universe:
{Aaron gets up and heads out after Gabe only to be stopped by Jace as he fills the doorway, holds up the laptop that’s playing “It’s a Small World”} Where did the little prick go?
The Universe:
{Aaron rolls his eyes, snatches the laptop from Jace, ducks past him} Come.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Aaron, arches a brow} Excuse me?
The Universe:
{Aaron shrugs} You want it fixed or you want to find the hidden Kiddie Porn while you’re trying to play Free Cell?
The Universe:
{Jace blinks} Kiddie porn? Get that shit *off*. {follows him} And what the fuck is Free Cell?
The Universe:
{Aaron shakes his head} Neanderthal. {opens the laptop as he’s walking and starts fucking around with it}
The Cosmos:
{Sang looks at Seth} Why does Jace have a computer?
The Universe:
{Seth looks at Sang} Seriously? How else is Gabe gonna fuck with him *and* get a head start?
The Cosmos:
{Sang laughs} okay.. That I get.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} When Gabe first gave him an iPod, he filled it with Celine Dion.
The Cosmos:
{Sang blinks} Shit.. and Gabe survived?
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} He runs faster.
The Cosmos:
{Bree smiles and shakes her head as she eats}
The Universe:
{David drums on the table} I don’t know. Gabe’s all right for a geek. I mean, shit, he’s gotta have huge balls to fuck with *Jace*.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods} I wouldn’t do it. {takes a bite of his food}
The Universe:
{Pope smiles} I would.
The Cosmos:
{Mia smiles} I would too. {Aubrey nods} Totally.
The Universe:
{Jace walks back in with his laptop, walks over and resumes his seat, slides his laptop over to Seth} The little fucker fixed it.
The Cosmos:
{Bree smiles} Nice.
The Universe:
{Seth pulls the laptop over, moves around the screen, clicking different applications} That was fast.
The Universe:
{Jace nods} Yeah, so remind me to be nice to him. Maybe I can get him to fuck with Gabe for me.
The Universe:
{Ro smiles} You’re going to set the genius against the computer geek? That has potential.
The Cosmos:
{Mia laughs} Diabolical.
The Universe:
{Jace smiles, nods, takes a sip of his coffee, looks over at Saige} Now, if I could just lure him from his room.
The Cosmos:
{Saige looks at Jace} Why?
The Universe:
{Jace rolls his eyes} So my genius can get in there and fuck with him back.
The Universe:
{Akhiro looks at Jace} If he’s such a genius, he won’t *need* to get in there to do it.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods} He could do it remotely.
The Universe:
{Ryan looks at Ethan} Only if there’s a network signal.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} There’s a network signal. And no I am *not* helping you.
The Cosmos:
{Saige nods} Besides… {looks at Sang} She can help you.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Saige} She won’t help me. He gave her toys.
The Cosmos:
Yes, he did. And *I’m* not helping you because he gave *me* something better than toys.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Saige } What’s better than toys?
The Universe:
{David smiles} He let her touch the “god head”.
The Universe:
{Loch smiles, shakes his head} That sounds dirty as fuck every time I hear it.
The Cosmos:
{Saige smiles at Ethan walks over to him leans in and whispers to him about the boy’s mouth and and how *well* he uses it, and the monster cock and how well he uses that, all in a very breathy pso voice}

The Universe:
{Ethan arches a brow, blinks} Um.. TMI. I think.
The Cosmos:
{Saige smiles} Probably.
The Universe:
{Ethan nods} Totally.
The Universe:
{Loch looks at Ethan curiously}
The Cosmos:
{Saige looks at Ethan} Should I?
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Loch and David who’s also looking at him, starts to say something, changes his mind, looks at Saige, smiles} Go ahead. Clear up the whole Anime Girl/Geek mystery.
The Cosmos:
{Saige walks over to Loch and whispers the same stuff to him, in the same voice, then does the same for David}
The Universe:
{Ryan shakes his head} There’s no mystery there. She likes him because he sees past the pig tails and everything else.
The Universe:
{Loch smiles, shakes his head} Slut.
The Cosmos:
{Saige laughs} Prove it.
The Universe:
{David looks at Saige, smiles} You wanna find an empty room and whisper in my ear like that later?

The Cosmos:
{Saige smiles at David} Whenever you feel froggy baby.
The Universe:
{Loch looks at Saige, smiles again} And that right there is why I don’t have to prove shit.
The Universe:
{David smiles at Saige} I’m froggy now, baby.
The Cosmos:
{Saige laughs, looks at Loch} Maybe I’m just lookin’ for the guy that can handle me.
The Universe:
{Aiden lights a post meal cigarette because he’s done eating, takes a drag} Shit.
The Universe:
{Loch nods} You sayin’ your vampire can’t?
The Universe:
{Samuel looks at Aiden, to Saige} Take your pick, darlin’, at least the ghouls and most of this table could handle you and then some.
The Cosmos:
{Saige shakes her head} My vampire’s busy with his princess. {looks over at Kat}
The Universe:
{Van looks at Saige} Sit down and quit advertising your willingness to fuck anything with a vaguely passing interest.
The Cosmos:
{Saige looks at Van, arches a brow at him} No.
The Universe:
{Van nods} I had a feeling you were going to say that.
The Universe:
{Van stands up, turns to face her and leans back against the table, crosses his arms over his chest} Let me ask you something. Do you even have a “type”?
The Cosmos:
{Saige looks at Van} Why do you care?
The Cosmos:
{Taryn quietly} Saige…
The Universe:
{Van shrugs} I’m curious.
The Cosmos:
{Saige looks at Van} Bad boys.
The Universe:
{Van smiles} Bad boys. {nods} So.. what was Gabe? Because *that* is not a bad boy.
The Universe:
{Jace looks over} You don’t think so?
The Universe:
{Morose smiles} They don’t know how *he* got here, Jace. {takes a sip of his coffee}
The Cosmos:
{Saige looks at Van, arches a brow} Really because I what I… {looks over at Morose} How’d he get here?
The Universe:
{Morose smiles at Saige, summons Gabe} I’ll let *him* tell it.
The Cosmos:
{Saige nods and looks back at Van} Look, I get that your’e all stuffy and proper and dominant and shit like that, and I’m supposed to be all yes sir and no sir. {shrugs} That isn’t me.
The Universe:
{Van looks at Saige, smiles} Really? That’s who I am and how you’re supposed to be? I don’t own you. I’m just getting annoyed by what is beginning to smell like desperation.
The Cosmos:
{Saige shrugs} You call it one thing I call it another. I’m having fun. Or I was until you decided to butt in.

The Universe:
{Van nods} That’s what happens when you have “fun” in public. Not everyone thinks it’s cute and people might actually object to having it thrown in their faces.
The Universe:
{Gabe creeps in, ready to bolt if Jace looks like he’s coming after him, to Morose} You wanted me?
The Cosmos:
{Saige looks at Van} Oh.. okay then.. mental note made…no public fun. Got it.
The Universe:
{Morose nods to Gabe, holds a finger up}
