Whither in Denial

The Universe:
{Glen texts to Chloe “Did you catch the ‘you’re marriage material’ after the swallowing?”}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe snatches her phone away from the hole and moves away from the alcove grabbing Gabe, ducks around a corner and reads her text, sends back, “heard him say it didn’t know where they were in the… act. They’re in the first alcove off the foyer and getting ready to move again.”}
The Universe:
{Glen sends back “Find out where they go, but for fuck’s sake, don’t get caught. And watch that video when you’re away from them. The virgins got a lesson in humjobs, rimjobs and salad tossing.”}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe laughs softly showing the message to Gabe, sends back, “Evil, evil Glen.”}
The Universe:
{Glen smiles, shows Hannah the texts}
The Cosmos:
{Hannah reads them and cracks up} Yes you are.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe sends back, “On the move headed for the vampire wing and her room, I think.”}
The Universe:
{Glen smiles, leans over and kisses Hannah before taking his phone back and reading it, texts “Let me know if they seem like they’re in for the night”} Alexei’s done. Between all the confiding and the swallowing….
The Cosmos:
{Hannah smiles} Oh I don’t know. Would he trust her so… readily?
The Universe:
{Glen looks at Hannah} I’ve never seen him like this before. I don’t know. Not without good reason, I don’t think.
The Cosmos:
{Hannah nods} Do you think she could…manipulate him that easily?
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Glen} You think he’s lying to her? They seem to have an awful *lot* in common.
The Universe:
{Edward shakes his head} He’s not lying about Mishka. I’ve heard a little of that story from Genja and I’ve seen the scars.
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Damien} And it was easy enough to guess the revenant element from what she told me about her family.
The Cosmos:
{Sang looks at them} Does she have reason to lie to *him*?
The Universe:
{Edward sighs} At least I didn’t have to be the one to say it. {shakes his head} It depends on what she wants to accomplish.
The Universe:
{Glen shakes his head} I swear to god if Alexei is as into her as he seems and she fucks him over…
The Cosmos:
{Sang quietly} I think most of us are with you in that sentiment Glen.
The Universe:
{Edward sighs} So.. just how vulnerable is the head ghoul we don’t really talk to all that much and hasn’t had a significant relationship since… well.. in a very long time?
The Universe:
{Damien shakes his head} I don’t even want to think like that. Come on.. it’s *Alexei*. We have no problem trusting him to protect *us*. Are we really going to start doubting his ability to protect himself? I’m more inclined to believe *he’s* playing on *her* loneliness and.. fifty years without a sexual partner.
The Universe:
{Edward sits back, lays his head back on the couch} I’m summoning him.
The Universe:
{Glen looks at Edward} What? *Now*? What are you gonna say to him? By the way.. Chloe’s been spying on you and we have photos and video of *everything*?
The Universe:
{Edward rolls his head toward Glen, frowns} Shit. You’ve got a point.
The Cosmos:
{Sang shakes her head} No.. we say Chloe heard you and Phoenix in the garden and she’s worried about you.
The Universe:
{Glen looks at Sang, arches a brow} That’s good. {looks at Damien} I think you can keep this one.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe walks up to the apartment door and puts her ear to it, texts Glen, “They’re at her apartment. and talking more.”}
The Cosmos:
{Sang beams at Damien}
The Universe:
{Glen checks his text, texts back “Can you hear anything?”}
The Universe:
{Damien smiles at Sang} Like I’d let anyone tell me I couldn’t.
The Cosmos:
{Sang leans into Damien} I know you wouldn’t.
The Universe:
{Damien smiles again, wrapping his arms around her tighter, quietly} No. I plan on keeping you a good long time.
The Cosmos:
{Sang softly} I plan on staying a good long time.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe sends back, “No.. I can’t. And I don’t want to do my thing to listen in, I’m not sure if he can feel me or if she’ll be able to.”}
The Universe:
{Glen texts back “Go ahead and call it a night, babe. Go have some fun with Gabe. You’re gonna need it after that video.”}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe smiles at Gabe and walks over to him, softly} We’re done.. unless you have feed into the vampires’ apartments?
The Universe:
{Gabe stands uncertainly looking at the door, frowns, quietly} No. But… I *do* have something…
The Cosmos:
{Chloe smiles} What do you have?
The Cosmos:
{Chloe sends a text to Glen, “Gabe says he has something to help.”}
The Universe:
{Gabe pulls his backpack off his shoulder, opens it, pulls out a voice activated handheld recorder, whispers to Chloe} Sometimes, when I’m running around or can’t stop and get on the laptop and I remember shit I need to do or come up with a coding solution for a problem I have, I use this.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe smiles} So how do we use it?
The Universe:
{Gabe crouches by the door, slides it through the gap with enough force to send it behind the table next to the door, stands, looks at Chloe, whispers} It won’t give us video but it’s voice activated. And I modded it so it uploads shit I record to my server.
The Universe:
{Gabe smiles} You know.. to save as a backup.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe smiles} Oh.. Gabe.. You are my favorite geek in the world. {Grins}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe sends that information to Glen}
The Universe:
{Gabe smiles, takes her hand, heads toward the tower } Tell him to give us five and we’ll have more for him. I just have to download it and run it through my editing program.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe sends that to Glen too}
The Universe:
{Gabe looks at her} It’ll stop recording when the voices stop and start a new file when the voices start again. If they don’t stop, we can stream it.
The Universe:
{Glen smiles, shakes his head} I don’t know what the fuck all this means, but.. I guess Gabe’s buggin’ her apartment.
The Universe:
{Damien smiles} It’s like we’ve got the guy that makes all of James Bond’s spy tools working for us.

The Cosmos:
{Chloe goes with him to the tower as she texts}
The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles} He’s like spy kids only not.
The Universe:
{Damien smiles at Sang} No. He’s really like Spy Kids. He’s not always all that mature with his toys.
The Universe:
{Edward smiles at Damien} Did you know he’s got a fully functioning life sized R2-D2?
The Universe:
{Damien blinks, bursts out laughing} No.
The Universe:
{Edward grins} Seriously. How cool is that?
The Universe:
{Glen laughs, shakes his head} Geeks.
The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles, Taryn laughs}
The Cosmos:
{Hannah frowns} What’s an R2 D2?
The Universe:
{the boys look at Hannah like she’s high, Glen arches a brow} Are you fuckin’ with us?
The Cosmos:
{Hannah grins} Totally.
The Universe:
{Glen breathes, smiles} I was gonna say.. even *I* know who R2-D2 is.
The Universe:
{the boys actually look relieved}
The Cosmos:
{Hannah smiles} I had five brothers and sisters. I’m the youngest.. yeah.. I know exactly what it is.
The Cosmos:
{Sang shakes her head, smiling}
The Universe:
{Glen smiles again, nods} Yeah, I keep forgettin’ about the sibs.
The Cosmos:
{Hannah smiles} Camille?
The Universe:
{Glen laughs, nods} Right. {smiles} Guess I just keep gettin’ distracted.
The Cosmos:
{Hannah smiles} It’s cool {blinks} I didn’t tell you.. she’s trying to “save” David.
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Hannah} *That’s* going to be interesting.
The Cosmos:
{Hannah laughs} It already is.. her method of distraction seems to be working for her so far.
The Universe:
{after a few minutes, Gabe walks in with Chloe, goes straight to the coffee table and sets up his laptop} I *love* this shit. I feel like fucking James Bond only cooler. {pulls up the server directory and sets up the stream}
