I Can’t Destroy What Isn’t There

The Universe:
{back in the throne room }
The Cosmos:
{Hayden stands there, jaw dropped}
The Cosmos:
{Renee looks at Sorrow, softly} Do you want us to go too?
The Universe:
{Sorrow looks at Ren, starts to say something when Gabe looks over at Alexei} Um.. we really need Genja back because we have that thing to talk to him about.
The Universe:
{Sorrow looks over at Gabe and Alexei, then to the new vampire, quietly to Ren} Yes. Out of sight, out of mind and all that.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods to Gabe} I will inform him. {pulls out his phone and texts Genja}
The Cosmos:
{Renee nods all right, still softly} I need to talk to you…when you have a chance. {looks at Devon} Come on.. we’ll go back to the apartment. {Devon nods and looks at Ryan}
The Universe:
{Sorrow looks at Ren} We’ll be back as soon as is physically possible. {whispers} I’m not really a fan of these gatherings anyway.
The Universe:
{Ryan looks at Devon, whispers} I’ll let you know what’s going on.
The Cosmos:
{Renee nods and Devon smiles at Ryan and nods too takes Renee’s hand and they slip out of the room}
The Universe:
{Sorrow watches them go} I wonder what she wants to talk about.
The Universe:
{Ryan shrugs} Probably her dead husband.
The Universe:
{Sorrow looks at Ryan, arches a brow} She has a dead husband? Why didn’t I know this?
The Universe:
{Ryan looks at him} You were dead when the conversation took place.
The Universe:
{Sorrow sighs} Damn. {shakes his head} I *hate* the sun.
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Taryn, quietly} You should go. When Genja says “the humans”, he means all of them.
The Universe:
{Damien walks over to Edward and Taryn with Sang}
The Cosmos:
{Taryn nods and looks at Sang, then back at Edward} We’ll meet you back at the apartment? {indicating Sang too}
The Universe:
{Edward nods to Taryn} That’ll be good.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Sang} This *shouldn’t* take too long. Genja isn’t really big on these things.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn nods, Sang nods too and *they* hurry out}
The Universe:
{Genja walks back into the throne room with the alien like creature} Let’s try to make this quick.
The Universe:
{Alexei and Gabe wait until all the humans are gone before approaching Genja, Gabe pulling out a thick stack of print outs, Gabe} We have a little issue where one of the flock isn’t what they seem.
The Universe:
{Genja takes the papers} You say that as though it’s unusual for someone to seem to be something they’re not. {looks through the papers} What am I looking at?
The Universe:
{Dom looks at Hayden, whispers} This should be good.
The Cosmos:
{Hayden quietly} It always is.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix watches}
The Universe:
{Gabe looks at Genja} You’re looking at Roland Harpers bank statements.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} He is one of Silver’s humans.
The Universe:
{Genja looks at them, motions Silver over} And why are these interesting?
The Cosmos:
{Silver walks over to Genja, looks at him questioningly}
The Universe:
{Gabe shrugs} They’re not if you don’t know what you’re looking for. In fact, they’re perfectly fucking boring at first and even second glance. But when you find a small, extremely expensive armory hidden away in a corporate banker’s attic, you look a little more closely.
The Cosmos:
{Silver looks at Gabe and blinks}
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Due to the nature of the weapons and they’re components and accessories, coupled with the bank statements.. {Gabe interrupts} The interesting stuff is what’s circled in red. {Alexei continues} It would appear that we have unwittingly taken an assassin into the flock.
The Cosmos:
{Silver looks at at Alexei} Are you *sure*?
The Universe:
{Sorrow arches a brow, looks at Ryan whose not even attempting to hide his shock.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} Fuck me. That *is* interesting.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Silver} As certain as we can be without… {Gabe looks at Silver} Silencers, a sniper rifle, a garrote, duct tape, several semi-automatic handguns, a box of trash bags, fishing line, a pair of gloves, a drop cloth.. with red spatters on it, by the way and last I heard Roland was *not* an artist. Did I mention the laser sighting on the rifle? The list goes on. If the cops saw it sitting on his front seat, they’d arrest him just on the *possibility* alone. Add to that the staggering sums of cash being shuffled around.. yeah, we’re pretty sure. But we’re not *certain*. I mean, hit men don’t exactly label their deposits with details of their crimes.
The Universe:
{Dominic smiles} I *love* assassins.
The Cosmos:
{Silver smiles slowly} Nice.
The Universe:
{Gabe arches a brow, Alexei smiles and shakes his head}
The Universe:
{Genja smiles at Silver, handing the paperwork back to Gabe}
The Universe:
{Glen looks at Hannah, smiles} How glad are you that you don’t qualify as one of the humans anymore?
The Cosmos:
{Silver shrugs} What. Kendra got the Dom.. I got the assassin.
The Cosmos:
{Hannah smiles} Oh you will *never* know.
The Universe:
{Genja smiles again, to Silver} I’d say you got the better end of the deal.
The Cosmos:
{Aubrey and Hayden look at each other}
The Cosmos:
{Silver smiles} Fuck yes I did.
The Universe:
{Genja looks around the room at the mixture of awe and surprise} Well, ladies and gentlemen. It seems there is a killer among us.
The Universe:
{Viktor smiles} Whatever will we do?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smirks} See who he kills first.


The Universe:
{Gabe looks at Heather} Babe.. about 90% of us in the castle couldn’t *afford* him.
The Universe:
{Genja looks at Heather, smiles} You don’t seem very happy about it.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} He’s an assassin. {shrugs} I’m not sure it makes a difference *now*. And I prefer to do my own killing.
The Cosmos:
{Silver laughs, then whispers to Genja} She’s jealous.
The Universe:
{Morose looks at Heather, smiles} It probably doesn’t make a difference, but it’s still cool as fuck.
The Universe:
{Genja nods, whispers to Silver} I thought so.
The Cosmos:
{Silver smiles} Totally. {Heather nods} It’s cool.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Genja} We have ex convicts living among us and there are very few vampires, if any, in this room who can claim *they* are *not* a killer. My only concern is how you would like us to deal with it in regards to the humans.
The Cosmos:
{Silver looks at Genja}
The Universe:
{Genja rolls his eyes} I don’t want to have to deal with all the moral outrage and ensuing paranoia. *If* you tell them, do it while the sun is up. Beyond that, take his toys.
The Universe:
{Lucien looks at Genja, smirks} *I* want to deal with the outrage and ensuing paranoia.
The Universe:
{Ryan whispers to Sorrow} We’ve got to tell them. Just so we don’t have to keep secrets from Ren and Devon.
The Cosmos:
{Silver looks at Alexei} I’d prefer they *not* know for a while at least. He has a brother that should be told first and I’d like to give him the chance to do that.
The Universe:
{Sorrow nods to Ryan, whispers} I know, but Silver’s right.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods to Silver} Then we will give him a chance to do that.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Silver} Assuming his brother doesn’t know already.
The Cosmos:
{Silver nods to Damien} Yes…assuming that. I’ll find out. {Summons Ro}
The Universe:
{Gabe shakes his head} The *only* way I see Christopher knowing is if Ro told him to make him feel safe, but I’d think that would actually work against him because, you know.. your brother tells you something like that and you’d probably start stressing over him getting caught. And, well.. killing people.
The Universe:
{Genja looks at Silver} It really isn’t necessary to confront him right here in front of us.
The Cosmos:
{Silver shakes her head, looks at Genja} I’m not I’m going to step out of the room to talk to him. {quietly} But you know as well as I do the more people that know a secret the less like it is to remain a secret.
The Universe:
{Genja nods} Which is why my next suggestion will be to have Summer summon Christopher so Roland can tell him before any of us leave this room.
The Cosmos:
{Silver nods} Thank you, Genja.
The Cosmos:
{Summer walks over to Genja} I’ll summon Christopher as soon as Silver’s done with Roland.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Heather} What are the odds?
The Universe:
{Genja nods to Summer} Thank you.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shrugs} One in a million.
The Universe:
{Seth laughs} Wait… *Roland* is a hit man? {looks at the vampires} Have any of you actually *met* Roland?
The Universe:
{Seth starts to say something else, blinks} Oh, shit. Actually, I *can* see it.
The Cosmos:
{Aubrey smiles} Totally. Especially after the way he shut Saige down the other day.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe looks at Gabe and smiles}
The Universe:
{Morose smiles} I can see Ro sitting next to some victim he’s got duct taped to a chair with their mouth taped over and talking in that way he does and saying shit like “Don’t worry about the carpet. I’ve already taken steps to ensure there won’t be a mess for anyone to clean up.”
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} “And while I was at it, I fed your dog and took him for a walk.”
The Cosmos:
{Silver smiles} And tucked in your kid and fucked your wife. Only he’d say serviced or something other than Fucked.
The Universe:
{Seth smiles at Silver} I don’t know about that. You didn’t hear him go off on Saige.
The Universe:
{Morose laughs} And then he’d go on to list all the ways the guy was a lousy husband, father and irresponsible pet owner.
The Cosmos:
{Silver laughs} Totally.
The Cosmos:
{Silver looks at Seth} I didn’t hear it.
The Universe:
{Ryan smiles} And he’d press the muzzle of the gun to his forehead and pull the trigger while he was lecturing him.
The Universe:
{Seth looks at Silver} I’ll tell you about it later.
The Cosmos:
{Silver nods to Seth and smiles} I can’t wait.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head and looks at Sebastian} Too much work.
The Universe:
{Sebastian smiles at Heather} What is?
The Cosmos:
{Heather shrugs} All that. Just shoot the fucker and be done with it.
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods} Seriously.
The Universe:
{Ro walks into the throne room and over to Silver} You called?
The Cosmos:
{Silver smiles and takes his hand} I did. Come with me please.
The Universe:
{Ro nods} Of course.
The Cosmos:
{Silver leads him out of the room and away from the door, quietly} Is there something you need to tell me?
