The Killer in Me is the Killer in You

The Universe:
{Gabe looks over at them} Though.. I *do* also feel kinda like a shit for spying on *Alexei*.
The Universe:
{Damien nods} Yeah, we all do.
The Cosmos:
{The girls watch Gabe}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe smiles at Glen} So how *hot* was that video?
The Universe:
{Glen looks over at Chloe, smiles} Babe. {looks at Sang} Show her?
The Cosmos:
{Sang nods and smiles wickedly and replays the video}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe watches, blinks} Wow.. It’s like Blair Witch Porn.

Whither in Denial

(2:59:04 AM) The Universe:
{Edward and Damien walk into the tower, Damien’s shaking his head, Edward looks at Taryn and Sang} Ro’s a hit man.
(2:59:40 AM) The Cosmos:
{Taryn looks up and blinks} No way. {Sang smiles} Awesome.

(3:00:03 AM) The Universe:
{Edward nods} I swear it’s true.
(3:00:20 AM) The Universe:
{Damien nods} Silver’s taking him to tell Christopher before someone else beats him to it.
(3:01:27 AM) The Cosmos:
{Taryn shakes her head} Holy fuck.
(3:01:52 AM) The Cosmos:
{Sang bounds up into Damien’s arms} That’s gonna be a hell of a convo.
(3:01:55 AM) The Universe:
{Edward nods, walks over and sits next to Taryn} And Damien volunteered us.. oh, you were still there for that.
(3:02:19 AM) The Cosmos:
{Taryn nods} To help with…{frowns} Phoenix?
(3:02:33 AM) The Universe:
{Damien smiles, wraps his arms around Sang, picking her up and carrying her over to a chair, sits, pulling her into his lap, nods to Taryn} Yeah, her.
(3:02:58 AM) The Universe:
{Edward nods to Taryn} We don’t trust her. This way, we can get a better idea of what she’s *really* up to.
(3:03:11 AM) The Universe:
{Damien nods again} And just how much she *does* know.

I Can’t Destroy What Isn’t There

The Universe:
{back in the throne room }
The Cosmos:
{Hayden stands there, jaw dropped}
The Cosmos:
{Renee looks at Sorrow, softly} Do you want us to go too?
The Universe:
{Sorrow looks at Ren, starts to say something when Gabe looks over at Alexei} Um.. we really need Genja back because we have that thing to talk to him about.
The Universe:
{Sorrow looks over at Gabe and Alexei, then to the new vampire, quietly to Ren} Yes. Out of sight, out of mind and all that.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods to Gabe} I will inform him. {pulls out his phone and texts Genja}
The Cosmos:
{Renee nods all right, still softly} I need to talk to you…when you have a chance. {looks at Devon} Come on.. we’ll go back to the apartment. {Devon nods and looks at Ryan}
The Universe:
{Sorrow looks at Ren} We’ll be back as soon as is physically possible. {whispers} I’m not really a fan of these gatherings anyway.
The Universe:
{Ryan looks at Devon, whispers} I’ll let you know what’s going on.
The Cosmos:
{Renee nods and Devon smiles at Ryan and nods too takes Renee’s hand and they slip out of the room}
The Universe:
{Sorrow watches them go} I wonder what she wants to talk about.
The Universe:
{Ryan shrugs} Probably her dead husband.
The Universe:
{Sorrow looks at Ryan, arches a brow} She has a dead husband? Why didn’t I know this?
The Universe:
{Ryan looks at him} You were dead when the conversation took place.
The Universe:
{Sorrow sighs} Damn. {shakes his head} I *hate* the sun.
The Universe:
{Edward looks at Taryn, quietly} You should go. When Genja says “the humans”, he means all of them.
The Universe:
{Damien walks over to Edward and Taryn with Sang}
The Cosmos:
{Taryn nods and looks at Sang, then back at Edward} We’ll meet you back at the apartment? {indicating Sang too}
The Universe:
{Edward nods to Taryn} That’ll be good.
The Universe:
{Damien looks at Sang} This *shouldn’t* take too long. Genja isn’t really big on these things.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn nods, Sang nods too and *they* hurry out}
The Universe:
{Genja walks back into the throne room with the alien like creature} Let’s try to make this quick.
The Universe:
{Alexei and Gabe wait until all the humans are gone before approaching Genja, Gabe pulling out a thick stack of print outs, Gabe} We have a little issue where one of the flock isn’t what they seem.
The Universe:
{Genja takes the papers} You say that as though it’s unusual for someone to seem to be something they’re not. {looks through the papers} What am I looking at?
The Universe:
{Dom looks at Hayden, whispers} This should be good.
The Cosmos:
{Hayden quietly} It always is.
The Cosmos:
{Phoenix watches}
The Universe:
{Gabe looks at Genja} You’re looking at Roland Harpers bank statements.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} He is one of Silver’s humans.
The Universe:
{Genja looks at them, motions Silver over} And why are these interesting?
The Cosmos:
{Silver walks over to Genja, looks at him questioningly}
The Universe:
{Gabe shrugs} They’re not if you don’t know what you’re looking for. In fact, they’re perfectly fucking boring at first and even second glance. But when you find a small, extremely expensive armory hidden away in a corporate banker’s attic, you look a little more closely.
The Cosmos:
{Silver looks at Gabe and blinks}
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Due to the nature of the weapons and they’re components and accessories, coupled with the bank statements.. {Gabe interrupts} The interesting stuff is what’s circled in red. {Alexei continues} It would appear that we have unwittingly taken an assassin into the flock.
The Cosmos:
{Silver looks at at Alexei} Are you *sure*?
The Universe:
{Sorrow arches a brow, looks at Ryan whose not even attempting to hide his shock.
The Cosmos:
{Heather shakes her head} Fuck me. That *is* interesting.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at Silver} As certain as we can be without… {Gabe looks at Silver} Silencers, a sniper rifle, a garrote, duct tape, several semi-automatic handguns, a box of trash bags, fishing line, a pair of gloves, a drop cloth.. with red spatters on it, by the way and last I heard Roland was *not* an artist. Did I mention the laser sighting on the rifle? The list goes on. If the cops saw it sitting on his front seat, they’d arrest him just on the *possibility* alone. Add to that the staggering sums of cash being shuffled around.. yeah, we’re pretty sure. But we’re not *certain*. I mean, hit men don’t exactly label their deposits with details of their crimes.
The Universe:
{Dominic smiles} I *love* assassins.
The Cosmos:
{Silver smiles slowly} Nice.
The Universe:
{Gabe arches a brow, Alexei smiles and shakes his head}
The Universe:
{Genja smiles at Silver, handing the paperwork back to Gabe}
The Universe:
{Glen looks at Hannah, smiles} How glad are you that you don’t qualify as one of the humans anymore?
The Cosmos:
{Silver shrugs} What. Kendra got the Dom.. I got the assassin.
The Cosmos:
{Hannah smiles} Oh you will *never* know.
The Universe:
{Genja smiles again, to Silver} I’d say you got the better end of the deal.
The Cosmos:
{Aubrey and Hayden look at each other}
The Cosmos:
{Silver smiles} Fuck yes I did.
The Universe:
{Genja looks around the room at the mixture of awe and surprise} Well, ladies and gentlemen. It seems there is a killer among us.
The Universe:
{Viktor smiles} Whatever will we do?
The Cosmos:
{Heather smirks} See who he kills first.

And I Don’t Know What Else I Can Do

The Cosmos:
{Chloe nods} *Totally*. And I don’t even know *how* he could *do* that.
The Universe:
{Gabe looks at her pointedly} We’re talking about *Seth*. The *cannibal*.. *and*.. former porn actor. Have you *seen* his porn?
The Universe:
{Gabe shakes his head} There’s stuff in there I couldn’t even finish watching.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe shakes her head} I haven’t seen his porn. Still.. Ew. {smiles at Ethan and Conrad as they approach}
The Universe:
{Gabe nods} Totally ew.
The Universe:
{Conrad and Ethan smile, Ethan} What’s up?

Stuck in the Middle With You

The Universe:
{while Loch is exploring Bree’s body and piercings, Tristan and Christopher are in the music room playing with Ethan and a very wasted David}
The Cosmos:
{Chloe watches the boys play. Heather sits next to her on the couch listening, Aubrey dances around}
The Universe:
{Ethan sings and plays lead while Christopher backs him on the rhythm, David plays like tomorrow’s never gonna come}

“No” is a dirty word,
Never gonna say it first,
“No” is just a thought that never crosses my mind.
Maybe in the parking lot,
Better bring your friend along,
Better off together than just one at a time.

The Cosmos:
{Chloe smiles listening}

She Wouldn’t Spit On Me If I Was On Fire

The Universe:
{a few minutes later, they walk into the music room, Loch lights a cigarette now that they’re away from the puppies and goes straight for the Jamison}
The Universe:
{David and Aubrey are layin’ on the couch in between bouts}
The Universe:
{Ethan walks over to the couch and smiles} Put some fucking clothes on. You’ve got company.
The Cosmos:
{Bree shakes her head} I don’t know David can stay naked.
The Universe:
{David grabs his lighter off the table, throws it at Ethan} Fuck off.
The Universe:
{Loch takes a drag of his cigarette, follows it with a shot, hands Bree the bottle} Come on, man. We’re gonna practice.
The Cosmos:
{Chloe walks in sans pig tails, looking more grown up in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, with sneakers, looks at Bree, then at David and Aubrey, arches her brow}

I’m a Failure By Design

This is a lesson in procrastination.
I kill myself because I’m so frustrated.
Every single second that I put it off 
Means another lonely night I got to race the clock.

 

Gabe left the kitchen and headed back to his room.  Inside, he went into the bedroom and looked at the girl laying on his bed.  Chloe had made it as far as this section of the castle before the sun had put her down and Alexei hadn’t wanted to risk moving her any farther than necessary because he couldn’t account for every last sunbeam in the halls.  Instead, he decided to put her in the windowless room that Gabe used as his bedroom in his suite.  Looking at her now, laying there, Gabe was really glad he’d decided to clean.  He shook his head, walked over and took a seat on the edge of the bed next to her.  He took her hand in his and brushed her hair from her eyes.  Quietly, he said, “Chlo?  Don’t do that again, okay?  Next time, just go to your room and summon me there.  I mean, I know you’re kind of on a tight schedule so it’s not like I’m gonna take it personally if you don’t make it before the sun comes up, so just…”  Gabe shook his head and kissed the back of her hand.  He was practically whispering when he spoke again.  “You could’ve killed yourself and I don’t want that, so next time, just don’t do it.”

He let go of her hand and crawled over her so he could lay next to her.  In the glow of a monitor, he told her about breakfast and what he did to Jace and about Morose’s return.  He told her about Saige, Ro and Van and finally he rolled onto his side, facing her so he could study her face until he fell asleep.

Getting There

Chloe trudged through the halls.  She could feel the sun’s pull.  She knew she didn’t have long and needed to get to Gabe.  She didn’t want him thinking she’d forgotten.  She hadn’t.  She’d just lost track of time, until it was almost too late.  She made it to the Ghouls quarters and had all but crawled into an empty room when she realized she’d never make it to his room.  By the time she’d found a safe place in the room,  the sun was already moving over the horizon.  She’d been unable to close the curtains before she’d been too exhausted to move.  She had no idea what the time was or even what would happen..she summoned Gabe and Alexei.  Gabe because well she was going to see *him* and Alexei because he probably already knew she wasn’t in her bed and didn’t want him to worry.

The Big Bad Wolf

The Universe:
{Seth looks over} You’re late. Missed the selections.
The Cosmos:
{Bree looks at him, grins} And the virgins.
The Universe:
{Sebastian looks over at them, smiles at Bree, to Seth} We got the ghouls selecting now, too?
The Universe:
{Seth smiles} And the virgins. Not exactly. Bree, this is Sebastian. Sebastian, this is mine.
The Cosmos:
{Hera walks over to Sebastian and puts her front paws on his leg as she stands on her hind feet for attention}
The Cosmos:
{Bree smiles} Nice to meet you.
The Cosmos:
{Bree nods} And yes I’m his.
The Universe:
{Sebastian turns off the bike, reaches down and pets Hera, smiles at her} Don’t worry. You’re still my favorite bitch. {gets off the bike and walks over to Bree and Seth, smiles at Bree} Good thing I’m not exclusively interested in virgins.

They’re Cool But Twice as Crazy

(9:31:36 PM) The Universe:
{meanwhile, back inside Kendra’s suite}

(9:47:19 PM) The Cosmos:
