Whither in Denial

(7:09:33 PM) The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks at Edward}
(7:09:57 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang bounces out of her chair and over to the door, smiles seeing Glen} Hi.
(7:10:14 PM) The Universe:
{Glen arches a brow, looks at Hannah, to Sang} Hi.
(7:10:26 PM) The Universe:
{Edward looks at Taryn, looks at the door} Come in, Glen.
(7:11:02 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang opens the door wider and smiles at Hannah too} Hey. {moves out of the way and back over to Damien where she drops into his lap}
(7:11:14 PM) The Cosmos:
{Taryn whispers} I was going to ask if you wanted me to get it.
(7:11:17 PM) The Universe:
{Glen takes Hannah’s hand and walks in, looks at Damien and Edward} Well.. *this* is new. What’s goin’ on, boys?
(7:11:45 PM) The Cosmos:
{Hannah looks at Damien and Edward} Hey babes.
(7:12:03 PM) The Universe:
{Edward smiles at Taryn, nods to Hannah} Hey. {looks at Glen} We were just discussing the issue of.. Phoenix.
(7:12:15 PM) The Universe:
{Damien wraps his arms around Sang, smiles at Hannah} S’up, babe?
(7:12:45 PM) The Universe:
{Glen nods, walks over and takes a seat} What issue?
(7:12:56 PM) The Cosmos:
{Hannah goes with Glen}
(7:13:18 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang shrugs} Only that she’s dangerous beyond reason.
(7:13:44 PM) The Universe:
{Edward takes Taryn’s hand} The issue of.. how to deal with her, maybe find out what she can do, without getting our brains scrambled.
(7:13:57 PM) The Universe:
{Glen nods to Sang, shrugs} Easy. Shadows.
(7:14:11 PM) The Universe:
{Damien looks at Glen, arches a brow} We don’t *have* shadows.
(7:15:23 PM) The Universe:
{Glen smiles} Which is why you brought me here. I’ve got ’em and so do three other people in the castle that she *knows* about now. Add to that they fuckin’ terrify her. So.. throw some particularly ominous shadows her way and what’s she gonna do? She’s got four fuckin’ people that can do it and no idea who actually is.
(7:16:29 PM) The Cosmos:
{Hannah shakes her head} Shoot you all.
(7:17:46 PM) The Universe:
{Glen looks at them} That gives her four targets. {nods to Taryn} If she can fuck up that many people at once, you’ll find that out. If she can’t.. you’ll find that out too, because she’ll have to pick who she’s goin’ after. That’ll also prove intent. {looks at Taryn} That mental shit takes a lot of mental energy. If she can take on four people at once, it’ll take a lot out of her. If she’s got crowd control.. we’re pretty much fucked.
(7:18:23 PM) The Universe:
{Edward frowns} But if she can do it, it also has the potential to weaken the attack. Like.. the more people she attacks, the more she has to divide the energy.
(7:18:48 PM) The Universe:
{Edward shakes his head} Which is all speculation, actually. I don’t know that for a fact.
(7:19:19 PM) The Cosmos:
{Hannah looks at Edward} Does it matter really when she attacked one of you already?
(7:20:27 PM) The Universe:
{Edward looks at Hannah} We can’t just go after her. Genja will lose his shit because he won’t see it as justifiable. *Glen*, we were just saying, has some leeway with that because she *did* attack *him* so Genja will be expecting some sort of retaliation.
(7:20:50 PM) The Universe:
{Damien nods} And we were just talking about how Glen won’t let that shit slide. We figure he can get his and help us out in the process.
(7:21:46 PM) The Cosmos:
{Hannah smiles and looks at Glen} Ohh.. so they want you to get yours in such a way as it benefits their cause.
(7:22:01 PM) The Universe:
{Glen smiles at Hannah} Vampires.
(7:22:28 PM) The Universe:
{Edward looks at Hannah} It actually will benefit *everyone* under this roof.
(7:23:33 PM) The Cosmos:
{Hannah smiles at Edward} I’m teasing. As long as she’s not spitting any more venom at us.. I give a fuck what happens to her.
(7:24:24 PM) The Universe:
{Glen looks at them} And I’m not even sure she realizes Kendra has shadow mastery too.
(7:25:17 PM) The Universe:
{Glen sits back, looks at Hannah} But I’m thinkin’ Alexei’s not gonna play ball so we might wanna leave him outta this. He seemed a little cosier with her than the usual newbie.
(7:26:01 PM) The Cosmos:
{Hannah looks at Glen} You think? {smiles} I’m thinking this might just piss him right the hell off.
(7:27:06 PM) The Universe:
{Glen nods} Seriously. {looks at the others} We wanna get her alone so he can’t protect her or even tell her what’s goin’ on. We want her in panic mode. We don’t need the hassle of him bein’ there talkin’ her down.
(7:28:10 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang looks at Glen} But you’ll also have to do it when she’s totally alone or the others are there.

 

The Universe:
{Glen nods} So I’ll have to get someone to stalk her that she wouldn’t connect to me and have them text me when she’s alone. I don’t have to be *in* the room to fuck with shadows *in* the room. I just have to be kinda close by.
The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles} Where is she now?
The Universe:
{Glen looks at Sang} She ain’t alone, babe. She and Alexei went out to the garden.. {looks at Hannah} We got some beautiful flowers, don’t we?
The Cosmos:
{Hannah arches her brow} Yes we do.
The Universe:
{Damien smiles, shakes his head} Who’s following her?
The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles and looks at Taryn} Let’s go pick some flowers.
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Taryn, starts to say something, Glen smiles at Sang} Relax, babe. Gabe and Chloe are takin’ a romantic stroll.
The Universe:
{Glen smiles at Hannah} I mean, seriously. Who’d suspect *Chloe*?
The Cosmos:
{Hannah grins} Simone.
The Universe:
{Edward blinks} Chloe. That’s fucking brilliant. {looks at Taryn} She’s got mental abilities, too.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks at Edward} What can she do?
The Universe:
{Glen laughs at Hannah’s response, nods} True. {texts Chloe “We’re in Eddie’s tower.”}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe sends back} Shit what did you do?
The Universe:
{Glen smiles, texts back “Seems like the Wonder Twins have some similar ideas about our new friend. Gettin’ anything good?”}
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Taryn} She can screw around with memories and talk inside people’s heads. She can make men see what she wants them to.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe shakes her head and sends back, “Depends on what you mean by good. Nothing really from her. other than she was abused”}
The Universe:
{Glen rolls his eyes, texts back “You cryin’ yet?”}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe sends back, “Fuck no. But our favorite blue hair has it *bad* like in a million ways bad.” , shows the texts to Gabe}
The Universe:
{Gabe takes the phone, texts to Glen “And you should hear the shit we didn’t know about *him*.”}
The Universe:
{Glen reads the text, sighs} Shit. {texts “Exactly how bad is *bad*?”}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe takes her phone back, reads the message “Oh seriously, no shit. Bad is.. as in he’s telling her shit I don’t think any of us know.”}
The Universe:
{Glen furrows his brow, texts “Hold on”, texts Simone “When you met Alexei that night he looked after you… what’d you guys talk about?”}
The Cosmos:
{Simone sends back, “Me, the other vampires, you, the ghouls.. stuff like that.”}
The Universe:
{Glen frowns, texts “So.. nothin’ about him?”}
The Cosmos:
{Simone sends back, “Not too much nothing…personal.” }
The Universe:
{Glen texts back, ‘Thanks, babe”, forwards the texts to Chloe, looks at the others} Okay, so this looks like it might be significant. Chlo says Alexei’s got it *bad* for the new girl. As in he’s tellin’ her highly personal shit and a lot of it that he doesn’t seem to make a habit of sharin’ with the new vamps.
The Cosmos:
{Hannah looks at Glen, frowns} So how do we get her alone?
The Universe:
{Damien shakes his head} So, he trusts her.
The Universe:
{Glen looks at Hannah} We wait. Eventually, he’ll leave her to go do *somethin’*. Even if it’s just to take a piss.
The Universe:
{Edward frowns} Alexei wouldn’t trust her without reason though. I mean, it’s not like he gets all… stupefied… over attractive women.
The Cosmos:
{Sang quietly} So what if someone…summons him that usually doesn’t. He wouldn’t bring her would he?
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Sang} It’s very possible he would. Especially with her being new.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} If for no other reason, than so they could get some face time and get familiar.
The Universe:
{Edward nods} And if we summon her and Glen launches his attack.. he could come to the very right realization that we did it intentionally and he wouldn’t trust *us* anymore. And that’s the last thing we want right now.
The Cosmos:
{The girls frown, Sang shakes her head} Shit.
The Universe:
{Glen smiles} Patience, grasshoppers. We’ve got nothin’ but time.
The Cosmos:
{Hannah smiles} But if someone summons *her* and someone else summons *him* at the same time? Like if Chloe summons her.. and leads her say.. to the ghouls area… and Glen summons him under the guise of just talking to him about her because he *was* attacked….
The Cosmos:
{Taryn nods}
The Cosmos:
{Sang looks at Glen} Well you have nothing but time. {smiles}
The Universe:
{Glen shakes his head} This is not happenin’ tonight, people. I want her to get comfortable and all… secure and shit. And when I *do* retaliate, I don’t wanna be the first place her mind goes *because* she attacked me tonight. I want her to get comfortable with the idea that I’m just lettin’ it go. Then when the retaliation *does* come, she won’t be sure who did it, which is what we want, right?
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Taryn} And with her being in panic mode or whatever it is, whatever happens right away could actually serve to amplify her attack and with much less effort and cost because she’s already in a heightened state.
The Cosmos:
{Hannah nods} All right. We’ll wait.
The Universe:
{the boys nod}
The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks at Edward} In the meantime we stay out of her way?
The Universe:
{Glen smiles at Hannah} Besides.. we want Chloe to get all the possible dirt she can.
The Universe:
{Edward nods to Taryn} Try not to draw her attention. Keep a low profile with Alexei, too. I don’t mean avoid him, just.. don’t give her a reason to get jealous or something. Particularly since we don’t even know if she’s reasonable.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn nods} All right. {smiles} It won’t be much different than normal.
The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles at Taryn} He was talking to you at Breakfast.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn nods} Yeah.. but that was mostly about Edward and Morose.
The Universe:
{Edward sighs} Siobhan.
The Universe:
{the boys look at Edward, Damien} What about her?
The Universe:
{Edward shakes his head} They’re sleeping together.
The Universe:
{Damien arches a brow} Tell me you don’t actually *hear* it when they fuck.
The Universe:
{Edward rolls his eyes} I *try* not to.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe sends to Glen, “Dude.. he’s all *romantic* and shit.”}
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Taryn} You want help soundproofing his room? I figure it’s more *efficient* than soundproofing everyone else’s.
The Universe:
{Glen reads the text, laughs} Ah, shit. “He’s all *romantic* and shit.” {texts “Did you know he’s fucking Siobhan?”}
The Cosmos:
{Taryn smiles at Damien} *No*. How else are we supposed to get the gossip.
The Universe:
{Damien laughs} Right. {smiles at Sang} So.. soundproofing *our* room?
The Cosmos:
{Chloe sends back to Glen, “No, but if he is he won’t be for long?”}
The Universe:
{Glen smiles, texts back “Are we talking the “L” word already, or what?”}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe shows Gabe the messages, “Not yet.. but close.”}
The Universe:
{Gabe looks at Chloe, smiles, whispers} *I* want to propose to someone. Christ.
The Cosmos:
{Sang looks at Damien} Our whole apartment.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} We’ll get on it as soon as physically possible.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe smiles at Gabe and sends *that* to Glen}
The Universe:
{Glen looks at the others} Guys. Chlo says Alexei’s all romantic and shit and hasn’t said the “L” word, but close *and* Gabe says *he* wants to propose to someone it’s so fuckin’ romantic.
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Glen} Okay.. are we *sure* it’s Alexei she’s talking about?
The Cosmos:
{Sang looks at Damien}
The Universe:
{Glen looks at Edward} Dude. How many people with blue hair we got runnin’ around here? Only one that I know of.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Sang}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe snaps a shot of Alexei and Nix being all close and stuff sends it to them}

The Universe:
{Glen looks at the picture, shows it to Hannah} Check this out. And I thought *I* had it bad.

The Cosmos:
{Hannah blinks} Damn.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe sends them a video of the couple as well so they can *hear*. “I’m surprised he’s not puking rainbows}
The Universe:
{Glen replies “I’m surprised *you* aren’t puking rainbows”, looks at the others} Who’s got a laptop close by we can load this video on and play on the big screen?
The Universe:
{Edward smiles} Sang’s the technophile.
The Universe:
{Glen nods, hands Sang his phone} Go to town, babe.
The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles} I do… {pulls her laptop out of the ever-present back pack and sets it all up, smiles at Damien} Have I told you thank you? {pushes play and sits back}
The Universe:
{Damien smiles} Every time you open it.
The Universe:
{the boys settle back and watch the video}
