Politics

The Universe:
{Damien shakes his head, smiles, looks at Kendra} Zero to giddy schoolgirl in “love you”.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} Yeah.. but it’s cool to see. {Looks at him} How’s Sang working for you?
The Universe:
{Damien starts walking again, smiles again} Um.. pretty much just like that only less.. obviously.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at him} Love.. really?
The Universe:
{Damien nods} Shit, babe. Have you *seen* her?
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods, smiling} I have.. she’s not your typical…blond. Or red head for that matter.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} No, she’s not. And she’s completely positive and uplifting and I dig her so hard, I can’t even figure out what the fuck I did before she came along.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at him} You did everyone you could while you were waiting for her so you’d be ready when she got here. {smiles}
The Universe:
{Damien smiles} I like that. I don’t even miss the sun when she’s around.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra laughs} Babe.. it hasn’t escaped me that she’s bright enough to *be* the sun.
The Universe:
{Damien smiles again} Exactly. {walks into the kitchen, looks at her} What about you and your two?
The Cosmos:
{Kendra looks at him} I actually really dig them. {whispers} I’m waiting on Van to give me an answer about changing him. He’s incredible. I can’t even describe it. He’s protective and gallant and classy. And Akhiro is steadfast.
The Universe:
{Damien laughs} Wow. “Gallant”? There’s a word I haven’t heard in *decades*.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} Don’t laugh.. it’s the best way to describe him. He’s got Alpha down to a science and can do it without making me feel like I’m giving up power to him.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at her, smiles} I wasn’t laughing *at* you, just.. it’s one of those words you never expect to hear again, you know? Chivalry supposedly being dead and all that. What I’ve seen of him, he seems pretty together, though. I wasn’t really all that surprised when you chose him. And I like Glen, but.. you always struck me as a corporate wife kind of girl. And I don’t mean that in a bad way.
The Universe:
{Damien shakes his head} That’s not even the right phrase. You’re not that stuffy.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra shakes her head} I know what you mean.. Part of me will always love Glen and he’ll always be my best friend. But he’s moving on and that’s okay.. he should. I’m glad he’s got someone. {smiles} I’ve done a lot of thinking and I know that I was afraid to not be with him.
The Universe:
{Damien walks over and leans against the table, crosses his arms} You seem happy and that’s all that matters.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} I am. And Genja was…pleased.
The Universe:
{Damien smiles} You realize we let our entire reason for choosing the kitchen leave, right?
The Cosmos:
{Kendra laughs} Shit. We totally did. Summon Sang back?
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} Or I can summon Van?
The Universe:
{Damien smiles again} How about we just… don’t worry about it. There’s only me and you now. It’ll look much more like we intend it.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods} All right. {quietly} Since it’s just me and you.. how do you *really* feel about all this?
The Universe:
{Damien shakes his head} Cautious. I’m worried about how safe everyone is, but especially Sang. Edward’s.. pretty freaked out by the whole thing. Doesn’t even want Taryn drawing *Alexei’s* attention because he doesn’t want Nix to even *think* she has a reason to notice her.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at her} And what gets me the most is that we currently have *no* way of defending against what she did to Glen if it was something she did from the inside.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods} And if Edward’s freaked we should all be.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} Or at least we should take it seriously. But.. he’s also emo and he saw what she did to Ciara which set his freak meter on high to begin with. And he’s also all focused on Taryn.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods} None of us want our humans injured.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} I know, but it’s more urgent for Edward, I think. He *really* does not want to lose this girl.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles} He digs her that much?
The Universe:
{Damien smiles} You know how he is. I mean, shit.. she’s a sweet girl and gorgeous and seems pretty into him, yanno? And he’s… worried.. that she’ll wake up one day and be like “Wait.. what am I doing here?”.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods} I understand why he would be.. he doesn’t have the best of luck that way.
The Universe:
{Damien shakes his head} I know. And I don’t get it. You’d think, looking like he does, he’d be the most confident guy in the castle, but it’s interesting how his issues seem directly proportional to how pretty he is. Add to that that most women don’t see *past* the pretty or really care to, and you can see why. {smiles} I’m *so* glad I’m not that pretty.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods} Oh seriously. I wouldn’t want to be as pretty as he is. Does…Taryn?.. see past pretty.
The Universe:
{Damien shakes his head} I haven’t really had a chance to see how they work, but… she doesn’t stare at him all awestruck and shit and they seem to actually *talk*. He’s got the same issues hot women do. “He thinks I’m just a pretty face,” “He only wants to be with me because of how I look”, etc. But Taryn doesn’t strike me as that kind of superficial, you know? She seems pretty grounded. She and Sang get along great and I don’t have any issues with her.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra laughs} Sounds like a foursome made in heaven. {grins}
The Universe:
{Alexei walks into the kitchen looking for Damien, stops when he hears them talking and waits quietly for them to finish}
