I Can’t Destroy What Isn’t There

The Universe:
{Gabe hangs out waiting for Chloe to do whatever she’s going to do}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe walks over to Gabe, whispers} You want to meet her or get out of here?
The Universe:
{Lucien looks over at Ciara, smiles} So, Roland is a serial killer. {blinks} Hit man. I meant hit man.
The Universe:
{Gabe looks at Chloe, whispers} What do you want to do? {smiles} You realize *she’s* kind of the baby now.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara laughs} Nice try Lucien. No way.
The Universe:
{Dominic and Sebastian look at Ciara, Sebastian nods} True shit.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe smiles brightly at Gabe} Yes she is. Let’s get out of here.
The Universe:
{Gabe smiles again, takes her hand and heads for the door waving at Lucien and the others as they go} We’ll see you guys later.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara shakes her head} Damn. Wow. {looks at Sebastian} Shit.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Ciara} It is true. One of the “armories” was his.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara looks at Alexei} Ro? He’s so…{blinks} calm.
The Universe:
{Dominic smiles at Ciara} And I imagine he’s very calm when he’s blowing people’s brains out, too.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara quietly} Dexter calm.
The Universe:
{Sebastian rolls his eyes} He’s not a serial killer. He’s a *hired* killer. They do it for the money. It’s a *job*. For serial killers, it’s pleasurable and a means of expression.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} There is a rather significant difference.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara nods} Well, duh. I know that.. I’m just sayin’. Maybe reserved is a better word for Ro.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Ciara} In fact, in some cultures, at one time, assassins were a noble and respected career option.
The Universe:
{Dominic laughs} “Reserved” is an entire world away from “Dexter calm”.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara looks at Alexei} I didn’t know that. And I like Ro. What’s going to happen?
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} Nothing, Bella. He will not be allowed to keep his armory, but.. he is going to tell Christopher before someone else does. Other than that, there is no reason anything *should* happen. If he kills someone, it will only be because he was hired to do so and the feasibility of such a thing *here* is zero.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara smiles} Cool. Breakfast would be much less interesting if he weren’t there.
The Universe:
{Alexei laughs, nods} And I am sure it will be even more interesting now that he is an assassin.
The Universe:
{Dominic smiles} Don’t you just love that word?
The Universe:
{Lucien laughs} And Heather got jealous because *Silver* got the assassin.
The Cosmos:
{Heather flips off Lucien} Bite me.
The Universe:
{Lucien smiles broadly} Go ahead, mention my herd again.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Do you even remember what they look like?
The Universe:
{Lucien smiles} I don’t have to. Ciara does.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} Lucien, she could sick you on Sebastian’s librarian.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Heather} Oh, he’d know she was mine by the red cape.
The Universe:
{Lucien smiles at Ciara, to Heather} She’s not going to sic me on anyone because that means I wouldn’t be paying attention to *her*.
The Universe:
{Lucien} She doesn’t want me getting distracted and forgetting her.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara smiles at Lucien} Oh.. you won’t forget me. {beams} I’m too interesting.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara shrugs and looks at Heather} Besides he still needs me.
The Universe:
{Lucien smiles broadly} Speaking of “needs”… {looks at Nix} It was nice meeting you.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles brightly at Lucien} You as well, Lucien.
The Universe:
{Lucien nods, takes Ciara’s hand and heads for the door} We’ll see the rest of you later.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara looks at Lucien} We need an alien too.
The Universe:
{Lucien looks at Ciara, laughs} That’s not an alien. {smiles, whispers} That’s Daniel.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara looks at Lucien, smiles} I don’t care what his name is.. he *looks* like an alien. Where the hell did Genja find him and What does he eat. I mean Jesus. He’s *huge*.. and Genja *touched* him. {shudders} Ew.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara shakes her head} Sebastian’s breath smelled better.
The Universe:
{Lucien starts to say something, rethinks is, smiles again} He eats.. whatever he wants.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks over at Ciara, arches a brow} Standing *right* here. Christ.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara smiles at Sebastian} Dude.. when you roared at me…
The Universe:
{Sebastian arches a brow} “Dude”.. I don’t have dog breath. In fact, with the exception of vampires who have that particular anomaly, because we don’t eat food or meat, there’s nothing to get caught in our teeth and nothing to digest. The worst you’d smell is old blood and if *that* were the case, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t get half the pussy that I do.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara smiles} I didn’t say you had dog breath. I wouldn’t say that.
The Universe:
{Lucien pulls Ciara toward the room} Come on. We have gossip to spread and things to do after.
The Cosmos:
{Ciara nods still smiling} All right.
The Universe:
{Sebastian shakes his head as they leave} That’s going to get annoying with a quickness.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles at Sebastian} You could always eat her.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks at Heather} It may come down to it.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} That could be interesting.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix listens}
The Cosmos:
{Jenna slips out}
The Universe:
{Dominic looks between them} Well, as entertaining as the two of you are, I’m afraid I’m going to have to tear myself away and find something even more interesting.
The Universe:
{Dominic heads to the door} Like another lifeless corpse.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} You wound me Dom.
The Universe:
{Dom smiles} I’ll make it up to you later and you can remind me how interesting you can be then.
The Universe:
{Dom looks back at them} In the meantime, I’m going to go annoy Anya.
The Cosmos:
{Heather laughs} She’s gonna love you for that.

The Universe:
{Dom smiles, nods} She usually does. {heads out the door}
The Universe:
{Sebastian nods} Yeah, I’m gonna go, too. I have to go bend Red over her desk.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} How the fuck did she get out of this.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Heather, smiles} Did anyone actually expect her to show up?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Yeah.. Anya doesn’t usually miss a chance to dress.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods as Sebastian heads for the door} Maybe she found something more interesting, too.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Or maybe her humans left her tied up.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} I doubt she would let them leave her in such a state.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shrugs} I would to get out of court.
The Universe:
{Alexei laughs} Then perhaps next time, you will have your humans tie you up.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles at Alexei} Totally.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix smiles} Court isn’t supposed to be fun.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods to Phoenix} It is not even pleasant for the king and he does not even try to pretend it is anything other than a chore.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix nods} My grandfather held court once a week on Wednesday. It was tedious and boring.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} Genja will only hold court when he must. He is not as rigid about such things as others in his position. He also does not like “your highness” or other pretentious sounding titles.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix smiles} I’ll remember that.. Sir it is.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} And now that court is over and just about everyone is gone, what would you like to do? Would you like to see more of the castle?
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her} Or perhaps, the gardens.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix nods} Yes please.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles, offers her his arm} You said you remember the lilac and wisteria from the gardens. I took that to indicate you were particularly fond of them.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix takes his arm} I very much was. It was one of the few places I could get away.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods, looks at Heather} You will excuse us?
The Cosmos:
{Heather nods} I will.. in fact I have some things I need to take care of.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} I will see you later, then. Goodnight.
The Cosmos:
{Heather smiles} Nigh.. Alexei, Phoenix. {turns and heads in the other direction}
