I Can’t Destroy What Isn’t There

The Universe:
{Edward watches them go} Well.. that was Glen and Hannah.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix nods} Thank you.
The Universe:
{Dominic walks over with Lucien who blatantly looks her over} Well, you clean up nicely. {smiles} I’m Lucien Black and this is Dominic. Our necromancer. Who.. actually could probably summon any loved ones you’d like to talk to again. I was very close to *my* grandfather.
The Universe:
{Dominic smiles} It really wouldn’t be any trouble.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix smiles} It’s nice to meet both of you. {looks at Dominic} No thank you. I don’t really have much to say to them.
The Universe:
{Dominic nods} Well.. if you change your mind.. or.. you know.. do something you didn’t mean to…
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix looks at Dominic, quietly} I seem to be doing that a lot.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Dominic} Be nice, Dominic. You have never been staked and closed in a wall for half a century. You have no way of knowing what you would be like when you were freed.
The Universe:
{Dominic smiles at Alexei} I *am* being nice, though.
The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at Alexei then at Dominic, questioningly} I don’t know how they would be able to help if I did something I didn’t mean to though.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Nix, quietly} He is not being helpful, Bella. He is referring specifically to your grandfather.
The Universe:
{Sebastian walks over, looks Nix over before looking at Lucien} Did you see the humans all but shitting themselves over Daniel?
The Universe:
{Lucien smiles} Yes. I hope he takes to lumbering through the halls.
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Nix} Sebastian. And over there is Gabriel, our technology department, Jace and Morose. Morose is Sorrow’s son and a revenant. The other two are ghouls, too.
The Cosmos:
{Nik looks at Dominic} Thank you, Dominic, for making me feel right at home.
The Universe:
{Dominic smiles at Nix} If your home was anything like mine, then my efforts are minimal at best.
The Cosmos:
{Nix follows where he’s pointing, looks up at Sebastian, smiles} A pleasure. {looks back at Dominic} Probably.
The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at Edward} Sorrow is the one that left already with the two women?
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Nix} He left with Ryan, but there were two women with them before that, if that’s what you mean. Ryan being the one that.. unnerved you.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix nods} Right yes. {looks at Edward} And you and Damien are…in charge of me?
The Universe:
{Edward smiles} We’ll be overseeing your.. training and development. We won’t be.. you know… {Damien looks at Edward for a second before interrupting him, looks at Phoenix} We’re not your baby sitters. We’re magic users and between the two of us, we have an extensive arsenal of psychic abilities.
The Universe:
{Edward nods} Which means we’re the best equipped to help you learn to control yours.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix nods, quietly} Thank you, I appreciate that. {looks at Damien} I’ve never…well I guess I never really had a chance to..but I didn’t know I could do that.
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Phoenix} What you did to Ciara was somewhat advanced.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix shakes her head} A lot of my..people were capable of that.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at her} That doesn’t change the advanced state of that particular ability, particularly to that extent. What you did to Glen was pretty fucking basic. So, I’m finding it a little hard to believe you didn’t know you could do it.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix looks at Damien} I’ve only every done the web sliding. {looks at Alexei} And I wasn’t even sure I could do the thing with Ciara.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks Phoenix, quietly} You will not convince them until they have spent more time with you and helping you with your training. Then they will be able to see the true extent of your abilities.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Edward} We need to go. We’re not doing anything with her until she gets her bearings and we’ve got people waiting on us.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix nods} I understand..they don’t trust me yet.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Vampires rarely trust anyone, Bella. Experience has taught you that much.
The Cosmos:
{Nix nods, looks at them} Is there anything you’d like me to do…before our first…um…meeting?
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Nix} You need to get some blank notebooks. You’re going to be keeping journals. You’ll need at least two or three.

The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at Damien} *Why?*

The Universe:
{Damien arches a brow} I’ll tell you when we get started. In the meantime, just get a couple of fucking notebooks.

The Cosmos:
{Phoenix blinks} I apologize, Damien.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} The main reason you’re going to need to keep at least one of the journals is because you’ve been staked for fifty years and a lot of shit has changed. Technology has grown by leaps and bounds and the world you remember is not the world today. You’ll need a method of organizing and clarifying your thoughts, feelings and the massive amounts of information.
The Cosmos:
{Nix nods, softly} Thank you.
The Universe:
{Edward looks at her} One of the journals you’ll be keeping is a dream journal. Mostly because there will be a *lot* of that information that your conscious mind won’t process and will be presented in your dreams by your subconscious. You’ll need to sort that, too which means I’ll be teaching you to analyze your dreams. But to do that, you have to remember them. Keeping a journal of them will help improve your dream recall.

The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at Edward, quietly} I already remember most of my dreams. We were taught from very young to remember them.
The Universe:
{Edward nods} Good. But you still need to write them down for analysis.
The Cosmos:
{Nix nods} And I will. {softly} I’ll start them as soon as I can get some notebooks.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her} I will have some for you before tomorrow.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} In the meantime, Edward and I have some things we have to do. We’ll probably see you again tomorrow night.
The Universe:
{Edward nods, looks at Alexei} Keep her away from Glen.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} I will do my best.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix nods and looks at each of them} Thank you.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} Don’t sweat it. {Edward smiles} We’ll see you tomorrow night, but if you need us sooner, Alexei can get us.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix nods} Thank you Edward. I’m sure I won’t need to bother you.
The Universe:
{Edward nods} If you need me, I’m sure it will be important.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix nods} Yes.. Edward. {tilts her head up a fraction} Thank you.
The Cosmos:
{Heather wanders over, smiles at Edward and Damien} Hey. {looks at Phoenix} Hello. Must’ve sucked being down for so long?
The Universe:
{Edward nods, smiles at Heather} Hey.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Heather} We were just leaving.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix nods} It wasn’t exactly the highlight of my life no.
The Cosmos:
{Heather looks back at Damien} Then I’ll see you later.
The Universe:
{Damien nods, heads for the door} Come on, Edward.
The Universe:
{Edward smiles at Heather, whispers loudly} He *really* wants to tell Sang and Taryn about Ro. {heads out after him}
