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.

I Wrote the Book On Pain

The Universe:
{Sebastian opens his door wearing nothing but a pair of black jeans, his long black hair still damp from the shower, smiles seeing Bonnie} Hunting *me* now?
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie tosses the book at him} You forgot this.
The Universe:
{Sebastian grabs the book, looks at the cover} I guess I got distracted. {walks into the room, leaving the door open and sets the book on the coffee table} It happens.
The Cosmos:
{Bonnie steps up and leans on the door frame, crossing her arms over her chest, shakes her head, dryly} Yes.. by your cock.
The Universe:
{Sebastian’s room is rather minimal, the predominant color being black, the primary materials being velvet and leather, the d├ęcor is accented in silver, the drapes are open to the let the moonlight in, looks over at her} Oh, I don’t think it was my cock distracting me.
The Universe:
{Sebastian grabs his cigarettes off the table, lights one} Are you coming in or what?

Too Late to Apologize

The Universe:
{Aiden sits at the same table he did the morning before with Samuel, Brennan, David, Loch, Christopher and Conrad}
The Universe:
{Tristan, Akhiro, Van, Ethan, and Ro sit at another table}
The Universe:
{with Constantine and Pope}
The Universe:
{And Cameron}
The Universe:
{Alexei sits with Jace, Gabe who’s on his laptop and Seth}
The Universe:
{Aaron sits near but not really with Aiden’s group}
The Universe:
{David watches Seth eat, whispers to Loch} I wonder if that’s *real* bacon on his plate.
The Cosmos:
{Bree sits with Seth, reaches over and plucks a piece of bacon off his plate, smiles at him}
The Universe:
{Loch glances over, whispers to David} Here’s hopin’.

Heartless

The Universe:
{Glen answers the door after a second, looking like he just got out of the shower, smiles seeing Kendra} Hey.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra forces a smile} Hey. Is Hannah here?
The Universe:
{Glen nods} Yeah. You need her for something?
The Universe:
{Glen opens the door wider} Come on in.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra walks in} I think you might want to be aware of the fact that she’s giving lessons on force feeding vampires…or more aptly forcing them to feed.
The Universe:
{Glen looks at Kendra, glances at Hannah and then back to Kendra} Why the hell would she do that?
The Universe:
{Van walks in behind Kendra}
The Universe:
{Glen close the door and walks over to the seating area where he picks up his cigarette out of the ashtray and hits it}

The Simple Need

The Cosmos:
{Kendra smiles at Van, looks over at Akhiro, smiles brightly, leans in and whispers to him} This is great, it’s been a long time since there’s been live music around here.

The Universe:
{Akhiro nods to Kendra, smiles} And we’ve got every instrument we need here to actually make a habit of this.

The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods} We could even set up a club or something like that?
The Universe:
{Akhiro nods} I don’t see why not. We’ve even got a bartender.
The Universe:
{Loch smiles at Bree, whispers in her ear} *Now* I’m horny.
The Universe:
{Ethan walks over to Loch and the others} You fuckers actually pulled me away from *gaming*.
The Cosmos:
{Kendra kisses Akhiro on the cheek, quietly} Sweet! I’ll talk to the king about it.
The Universe:
{Tristan smiles at Ethan} Apparently, not an easy feat.
The Universe:
{Ethan laughs} Not when there’s a whole gaming *party* going on, no.

This Ain’t a Love Song

(4:42:29 AM) The Universe:
{Meanwhile, in the music room, Loch sits at the piano, writing music and playing short bursts on the keys as he refines the stanzas}
(4:44:44 AM) The Cosmos:
{Bree walks into the music room sees Loch, stops, watches and listens for a moment, quietly} Sorry I’ll find someplace else..{goes and grabs an acoustic guitar, turns and heads for the doors}
(4:45:13 AM) The Universe:
{Loch looks over, smiles} Why? Am I gonna bother you?
(4:45:33 AM) The Cosmos:
{Bree smiles} No but I might bother you.
(4:45:57 AM) The Universe:
{Loch laughs} Babe…{smiles} I seriously doubt that.

Try to See Things My Way

The Cosmos:
{Hayden smiles over her shoulder at Brennan} Oh yeah? You’ll have to tell me about that.
The Universe:
{Brennan smiles wickedly} I would *much* rather show you.
The Cosmos:
{Hayden looks ahead again} We can talk about that too.
The Universe:
{Brennan arches a brow} That’s a conversation I might actually listen to.
The Cosmos:
{Hayden smiles wickedly} So much for not pissing off the vampire.
The Universe:
{Brennan smiles} I haven’t *done* anything yet.
The Cosmos:
{Hayden laughs} No.. but the yet tells me you will.
The Universe:
{Brennan nods} I never was real good at that being good thing. However, she *did* say other girls were something we could talk about, too.
The Universe:
{Brennan sighs} I have a feeling me and Peyton are gonna be doing a *lot* of talking.
The Cosmos:
{Hayden nods} That’s a good thing. Peyton’s cool. As long as you talk to her *before*. You know?
The Universe:
{Brennan looks at Hayden} I’ll have to keep that in mind. What about shit you didn’t see coming?
The Universe:
{Brennan smiles} Because there’s a *lot* of shit that happens to me that I never saw coming.
The Universe:
{Brennan smiles more broadly} I’m really just a victim of circumstance.

New Mornin’, New Day

The Universe:
{Seth and Jace sit at the ghoul table with Alexei who has just finished the rounds}
The Cosmos:
{Mia, Siobhan and Aubrey sit with the other Ghouls, Mia} I wonder how Dom faired with his princess.
The Universe:
{Aiden sits at a table by himself because he prefers it that way with a plate of food in front of him that he’s neglecting in favor of a cup of black coffee, he’s up earlier than most of the other humans out of habit}
The Universe:
{Seth takes a sip of his coffee} He probably didn’t have time to fare shit considering how late it was before everyone finished choosing. And he was one of the last ones.
The Cosmos:
{Siobhan laughs} You should have seen what Mia did to her though. Well what we did to her.
The Universe:
{David walks in and grabs a plate, heads over and sits across from Aiden, looks over at him} You’d think you’d be happier *out* of the cell.
The Universe:
{Aiden raises his eyes to him, flips him off slowly and deliberately}
The Universe:
{David half smiles} Mornin’ to you too, Sunshine.
The Cosmos:
{Taryn walks in takes a plate and goes to an empty table after filling it with healthy foods from the buffet}
The Universe:
{Aiden smirks} Haven’t you had enough? {takes a sip of his coffee, his eyes moving from David to take in the room}
The Universe:
{David shrugs} Smoke a joint or somethin’. It’s not like you gotta worry about droppin’ the soap around *here*.
The Cosmos:
{Sang bounces in, grabs coffee and a plate, looks around and goes over to the table with Aiden and David, smiles} Morning.
The Universe:
{Brennan walks in and looks around as he heads to the buffet wit Tristan next to him}
The Universe:
{Aiden and David look at Sang, Aiden arches a brow, looks back at David} You’ve gotta be kiddin’ me.
The Universe:
{David smiles at Sang} He’s not a mornin’ person, apparently.
The Universe:
{Brennan smiles, nods toward Sang as he nudges Tristan, whispers “dat ass”}
