Tie Me Up Before You Go

The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at him and whispers} What about you..do you have trust issues?
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her, furrows his brow} I do not believe I do.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} I don’t think you do either.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} I am not naïve or gullible.  But I do not believe that is the same thing.
The Cosmos:
{Nix shakes her head} No it’s not.  And I don’t think you are.. you’ve seen too much to be either.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} But I am aware of your trust issues and I am not the least surprised by them.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her} I am actually surprised you trusted me as easily as you did.
The Cosmos:
{Nix quietly} So am I.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} It did not escape me that you were afraid to be touched when we first met.  Or that you thought you might be hurt.
The Cosmos:
{Nix shakes her head} I’m not sure I’d let anyone else touch me.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} I should probably not be as happy about that as I am.
The Cosmos:
{Nix tilts her head} That makes you happy?
The Universe:
{Alexei shakes his head} Not that you have the issues, but that no one else will be touching you.
The Cosmos:
{Nix softly} I’m actually okay that you’re the only one.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her} I believe that a woman belongs to herself until such time as she decides she wants to belong to someone else, but that only one man should be able to claim her.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} Well.. at a time.
The Cosmos:
{Nix quietly} But so many have already….{looks down}  Claimed me.  I only want to belong to one man..
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her} Damien is not claiming you.  He is only stepping in until such time as you do belong to someone.  Genja can claim all of us.  It is not the same thing.  You will belong to only one man, Bella.
The Cosmos:
{Nix nods, looks up at him} You?
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} It is the only way I will have it.
The Cosmos:
{Nix quietly} It’s the only way I want it.  {softly} I need you, Alexei.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} I know.  And I need you.
The Cosmos:
{Nix quietly} Stay with me?
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} For as long as you will have me.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} A *very* long time.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} I will text Genja and see when he will have time to discuss this with us.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} Yes please.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles again, pulling out his phone} Actually.. I will do one better.  {texts Ava “Would you let me know when Genja will be available?  I would prefer tonight if it is possible”, to Phoenix} Ava has a better idea of what he is doing and how important it is.  And I think she will appreciate that I am considering her.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles, quietly} Thank you.  Best not to make her feel like you sidestepped her?
The Cosmos:
{Ava gets the message and shows it to Genja} Now?
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Exactly. It is important that Genja’s wishes be taken seriously even if she is human.  And she has the king’s ear.  I also do not want to cause… friction.  It would not be good or smart to cause friction with one of Genja’s favorites.
The Universe:
{Genja nods} Only if it’s important.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} You are so up on politics.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Phoenix} I also have no reason to disrespect her.  So I will not.
The Cosmos:
{Ava looks at Genja} He said tonight if possible.  It’s important enough that he’s asking.  {texts Alexei ” Is it Important?}
(11:05:20 PM) The Universe:
{Alexei looks back at his phone, texts “It is important to me and it is important to Phoenix.  But it may not be important to him.  We would like to discuss with him our relationship and such things tend to be rather tedious for him.”}
(11:06:43 PM) The Cosmos:
{Ava looks at Genja, smiles and nods, sends “Come now”}
(11:07:00 PM) The Cosmos:
{Ava looks at Genja} They’re coming now.
(11:07:18 PM) The Universe:
{Alexei smiles, texts back “We will be there soon. Thank you.”, looks at Phoenix} We are going to see the king.
(11:07:45 PM) The Cosmos:
{Phoenix quietly} Is this going to be my…audience with him as well.
(11:07:47 PM) The Universe:
{Genja looks at Ava, arches a brow} It’s important enough to deal with it now, yet you’re smiling.  So it can’t be a bad thing.
(11:07:57 PM) The Universe:
{Alexei nods} More than likely, yes.
(11:08:50 PM) The Cosmos:
{Ava nods} It isn’t bad.  Alexei and Phoenix, about their…relationship.
(11:09:10 PM) The Universe:
{Genja arches a brow} “Relationship”?  Is that his word?
(11:09:40 PM) The Cosmos:
{Ava nods} Yes. It is.
(11:10:35 PM) The Universe:
{Genja rolls his eyes} Oh for fuck’s sake.  I have enough issues with *my* relationships.  Why in the hell would I need to listen to them talk about *theirs*?  And since when does *Alexei* have “relationships” with the new vampires?
(11:10:58 PM) The Universe:
{Genja paces}
(11:12:07 PM) The Cosmos:
{Ava looks at him, blinks} Eden.. shit.  {fills him in on what happened there and shakes her head} She’s going to want to talk to you too.
