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.

My Tongue Will Taste of Gin and Malicious Intent



The Universe:
{Ro walks into the dungeon with Lia after having exhausted every other area of possibility in the castle}
The Cosmos:
{Lia looks at Ro, quietly} Do you think he’d really be back down here?
The Universe:
{Ro nods} Actually, yes, I really do. {heads toward their old cells} In fact, I think it’s exactly the kind of thing he’d do.
The Cosmos:
{Lia looks ahead of them} Because it’s familiar?
The Universe:
{Ro looks at Lia, loudly} Because he’s a little fucked up in the head.

If It’s Love You’re Lookin’ For, I Can Give a Little More

The Cosmos:
{Camille looks at David} Music or sleep.
The Universe:
{David looks at Camille, smiles} You gonna watch me while I do that, too?
The Cosmos:
{Camille nods and smiles} Yes actually I am.
The Cosmos:
{Bree whispers to Loch} She takes him to her room we can search for hidden bottles.
The Universe:
{David smiles wickedly} You gonna sleep *with* me?
The Universe:
{Loch nods to Bree, whispers} When’s he had time to stash any? He was too drunk last night and didn’t even know where he lived.
The Cosmos:
{Camille shakes her head} Nope. Not until you don’t smell like a distillery.
The Cosmos:
{Bree nods} True.
The Universe:
{David looks at her for a second, nods} Right. Kinda thought the shower I took this mornin’ took care of that. {pulls his drumsticks out of his back pocket} That’s all right, though, because I wasn’t plannin’ on goin’ back to bed anyway.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at David} You ready to go? We can fuck around til everyone else gets there.
The Cosmos:
{Camille nods} The shower didn’t take care of the four cups you had this morning.
The Universe:
{David nods, twirls one of the sticks through his fingers} Let’s do it.
The Universe:
{David stands, looks at Camille} Yeah, well..neither did you.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Eden} I’ll see you later?
The Cosmos:
{Camille arches her brow} No I didn’t and that was my bad.. .I’m doing what I can *now*.
The Cosmos:
{Eden looks at Ethan} Yeah.
The Cosmos:
{Izzy smiles} I’m gonna go see who’s trucks got here.
The Universe:
{Ethan looks at Izzy, smiles} Keep me informed. I’m going to get David to his drum set so he can remember why he gets up every morning.
The Cosmos:
{Izzy nods and smiles} I totally will.
The Cosmos:
{Camille stands, As do Izzy and Nikki, Nikki to Izzy} I’ll come with you.
The Universe:
{Ethan grabs David by the shoulder, smiles at Camille} Breakfast was really good, thank you. He’ll thank you later. {pulls David toward the door}
The Cosmos:
{Camille looks at Ethan and nods} I’ll be in, in a few.
The Cosmos:
{Emily goes to the kitchen as Izzy and Nikki head out}
The Universe:
{Brennan and Van watch Ethan drag David out}
The Cosmos:
{Camille shakes her head, mutters something in Italian}
The Universe:
{Loch looks at Camille} You’re not expectin’ it to be easy, are ya?
The Cosmos:
{Camille looks at Loch, pushes her hair behind one ear} No. I’m not. But I intend to fight him every step of the way if I have to.
The Universe:
{Loch nods} I’ll be there with you. My dad was an alchy.
The Cosmos:
{Camille nods} Had a brother that was. He ended up hating me. {softly} He also ended up dead.
The Universe:
{Loch nods} My old man ended up dead, too.
The Cosmos:
{Camille looks at Loch} I’m sorry.
The Universe:
{Loch shrugs} It happens. And I really don’t need sympathy, so don’t worry about givin’ it to me.
The Cosmos:
{Camille nods} It wasn’t… {shakes her head} Yeah..okay.. anyway.. I’m going to head to the music room and make sure he hates me enough.
The Universe:
{Loch smiles} We’ll come with you.
The Universe:
{Loch shrugs} He can spread the hate around.
The Cosmos:
{Bree nods} Yes we will. {Camille smiles} Let’s do it then. {heads for the door}
The Universe:
{Loch follows Bree}

If You’re Somewhere Out There Passed Out on the Floor

The Cosmos:
{Mia looks at Jace} Wonder who had *that*?
The Universe:
{Alexei walks back to his seat. sits down, whispers to Mia} Aiden, Samuel and Roland.
The Universe:
{Jace looks at Alexei, arches a brow, whispers} Aiden and Samuel I can see, but *Ro*?
The Cosmos:
{Mia blinks, whispers} Ro…Seriously?
The Universe:
{Alexei nods, whispers} Gabriel is going back over his bank records. The collections are vastly different. Aiden and Samuel have primarily hand guns. Roland, however, has a slightly more vast array including but not limited to Katanas.
The Universe:
{Alexei whispers} Aiden and Samuel also do not have silencers or padded cases for their weapons.

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”}

Life of My Own Part 27

Girls:
[Summer and Silver take their guys and get out of the way, chatting with them as they leave]
Girls:
[Peyton nods] Dom always is interesting.
Boys:
[Van looks at Peyton] I’ve seen more likable guys.
Boys:
[Glen nods] Dom’ll surprise you. And he’ll grow on the girls.
Girls:
[Petyon nods] Yeah he will.. [looks at Glen] You remember him and Silver when he first met her?
Boys:
[Glen smiles] Oh, yeah. They were at each other’s throat.
Boys:
throats.
Girls:
[Peyton nods] All but screaming at each other.
Boys:
[Glen nods] He doesn’t really care if he’s likeable. But you get to know him, and sometimes, even when you just wanna kick his ass, you find yourself likin’ him just a little at the same time.
Boys:
[Van looks at Glen] You didn’t seem to like him.
Boys:
[Glen shrugs] He’s got his moments.
Boys:
[Van nods, takes a drag]
Girls:
[Peyton nods] And he’s good to have on your side in a fight?
Boys:
[Glen nods] Oh, yeah. Especially with the zombie hordes.
Girls:
[Chloe nods] Totally.
Boys:
[Conrad arches a brow] Zombie hordes? Like.. *real* zombies?
Boys:
[Glen looks at Conrad] Not like Resident Evil zombies. More like actual voodoo type zombies.
Boys:
[Conrad looks relieved] Oh. Okay.
Boys:
[Akhiro looks at Glen] So when do we meet the werewolves?
Boys:
[Glen smiles] If you’re *really* lucky? You don’t.
Boys:
[Akhiro arches a brow] Are you seriously telling me there are werewolves?
Girls:
[Chloe nods] Those are …[Shudders}
Boys:
[Glen looks at Akhiro] Have you ever heard of vampires without werewolves? Of course, there are.
Girls:
[Peyton nods] Nasty bitches too.
Boys:
[David shakes his head] Zombies, vampires and werewolves, oh my.
Girls:
[Chloe nods] Something like that.
Boys:
[David looks at Chloe] As if I didn’t think the world was *already* a fucked up place.
Girls:
[Anya walks down into the dungeon dressed as if she just stepped off the pages of Cosmo, looks around] Dom’s been here.
Boys:
[the boys look over at Anya, Glen smiles] How’d you know?
Girls:
[Anya looks at Glen] The stench of death… oh and the talk of Zombies.
Boys:
[Glen laughs] Right. [smiles] Well.. he got himself a gypsy “princess” and some other girl he didn’t even talk to.
Boys:
[Tristan looks at Glen] Hell, he barely talked to the gypsy.
Boys:
[Brennan smiles] At least he didn’t fuck her right here in the middle of the thoroughfare.
Girls:
[Anya smiles] Dom would stoop that low. [looks at Glen] Let me guess.. Heather?
Boys:
[Glen nods] Of course.
Girls:
[Anya shakes her head] Christ. [smiles] I guess I’m here to get my…men.
Boys:
[Van looks at Anya] Fortunately, Glen blocked our view.
Girls:
[Sophia looks at the other girls in the cages] Are we left overs?
Girls:
[Bonnie shrugs] Who knows?
Girls:
[Anya smiles] Thank god for those shadows.
Boys:
[Glen smirks] That wasn’t me bein’ nice, that was me bein’ selfish. *I* didn’t wanna see it. [looks over at Sophia] What you are is “extras”. We’ll be giving you guys jobs around the castle.
Girls:
[Sophia nods]
Boys:
[Glen looks at Kendra] You know.. in case anyone else is afraid they’re just gonna get picked off and buried in a small grave.
Boys:
small-shallow
Girls:
[Kendra nods] Seriously.
Girls:
[Hannah leans over and whispers to Glen] Who’s left to pick?
Boys:
[Glen looks at Hannah, whispers] I think Anya’s the last.
Girls:
[Hannah smiles, still whispering] You know what you’ve done here don’t you?
Boys:
[Glen smiles] What’d I do?
Girls:
[Hannah softly] You took over the King’s watch.
Girls:
[Anya peruses the cells]
Boys:
[Glen arches a brow] Shit. [smiles] You see how ambitious I am? I’m doin’ this shit in my sleep.
Girls:
[Hannah smiles, quietly] And with the exception of Dominic who sorta did it, everyone pretty much reported to you.
Boys:
[Glen whispers] You know what’s really fuckin’ funny about this?
Girls:
[Hannah shakes her head] You didn’t even want to choose?
Boys:
[Glen laughs] Well, that, too. [whispers] I was actually on my way back to you and Joey. I only came down here to help Chlo.
Girls:
[Hannah smiles] That is funny.

Life of My Own Part 26

Boys:
[Dominic walks into the dungeon, his previous session having been interrupted by all the Simone drama]
Girls:
[Summer nods] Is there anyone here you prefer over anyone else as far as getting along.
Boys:
[Christopher glances around covertly, quietly] Cameron’s pretty cool. [nods toward an auburn haired guy with ice blue eyes] I think he’s part Italian. Ethan’s *really* cool, but he’s already taken. [nods toward Aaron who’s pacing his cell, whispers] He’s a bit of a dick, but.. he’s got some issues I can relate too and I think that’s why he’s dickish. And I think he’s gonna lose his shit if he doesn’t get out soon. [looks back at her, quietly] Cameron’s probably my favorite, though.
Girls:
[Summer smiles] All right I’ll grab Cameron and have Silver take Aaron. [Whispers] maybe being around Roland will help Aaron.
Girls:
[Several of the girls look over when Dominic walks into the room]
Boys:
[Christopher nods, whispers] Or getting laid? [shakes his head] I should *not* have said that. [looks at her] Ro’s really good with people who have… issues.
Girls:
[Summer smiles] Well one thing about Silver.. [whispers softly] She’s a sure thing.
Boys:
[Christopher looks at Summer, smiles, whispers back] I kind of picked up on that.
Boys:
[Dominic walks over to the group with a cigarette in hand] What’s with the little pow wow in the middle of the fucking basement?
Boys:
[Glen looks at Dom] Oh, you didn’t know us “su-humans” are supposed to be basement dwellers?
Boys:
[Dom looks at Glen] The sub humans are in the *sub* basement.
Boys:
[Dom smiles] Aren’t you supposed to be in church or something?
Girls:
[Silver smiles at Roland] That’s Dominic. *He’s* an attention whore.
Boys:
[Ro looks over at Dom] Should that surprise me? Because, strangely, it doesn’t.
Boys:
[Glen smiles] Shouldn’t you be on your knees, begging God [crosses himself] for forgiveness?
Boys:
[Dom smiles again] Nice. I fully expected something about corpse fucking. You exceeded my expectations. As always.
Girls:
[Silver shakes her head] It shouldn’t. [looks over at Glen] Dom kneels before no one unless his a graven image of himself.
Boys:
[Glen looks at Silver, smiles] And then there’s that.
Boys:
[Dom looks at Silver, arches a brow] I see we’re still a little.. touchy.
Boys:
[Dom looks back at Glen] She’s just pissed off because I stopped worshipping *her*.
Girls:
[Silver looks at Dom, smiles] Joke babe… it was a joke..asshole.
Boys:
[Dom looks back at Silver, smiles] Slut.
Girls:
[Silver smiles brightly]
Girls:
[Kendra laughs] And all is right with the world.
Boys:
[Glen shakes his head] So who are you worshiping tonight, Dom?
Boys:
[Dom shrugs] *That* remains to be seen.
Boys:
[Glen nods] I’m surprised you weren’t down here right after Sorrow.
Boys:
[Dom walks down the aisle, perusing the cells] I’ve been down a couple of times.
Girls:
[Kendra nods] Seriously, me too. [grins] You missed all the sacrificial virgins.
Boys:
[Glen smiles] Genja snatch all the ones you considered worthy?
Boys:
[Dom looks at Kendra, smiles] Virgins aren’t really that much fun. They require even *more* pretending than the average woman.
Boys:
[Dom shrugs] I didn’t feel like exerting the effort.
Girls:
[Kendra laughs] Damien’s digging his.
Boys:
[Dom nods] When he’s not face down in a prone position, you mean.
Boys:
[Glen arches a brow] That was wrong even for you.
Boys:
[Dom smiles] Of course, it was. Why else would I say it?
Girls:
[Kendra shakes her head] You missed Heather’s performance.
Boys:
[Dom smirks] *No* one misses Heather’s.. “performance”.
Boys:
[Dom looks at Kendra] Just because I didn’t see it tonight, doesn’t mean I missed anything.
Boys:
[Van looks at Kendra, whispers] Vicious.
Girls:
[Kendra nods to Van, quietly] Yeah. [looks at Dom] Okay babe.. what’s bugging you?
Boys:
[Dom smiles] Nothing’s bothering me. [looks over at Hannah] So, Glen… tell me.. is our newest little bloodsucker worth all the effort you’re putting into her?

Boys:
[Glen nods] She will be.
Boys:
[Dom nods, turns his attention back to the cells, takes a drag] I think she will if that little display outside was any indication. Nice touch with the shadows, by the way. Chloe probably would have destroyed her without them.
Girls:
[Chloe looks at Dom, smiles] That’s why I love you, Dom.
Boys:
[Dom looks at Chloe, smiles] I know. It’s a shame *you’re* not in a cell, all nice and human like.
Girls:
[Chloe laughs] I’d only have eyes for you if I was.
Boys:
[Dom takes another drag, smiles] You know Glen knew you’d destroy her, too, right? Otherwise, he wouldn’t have helped her.
Girls:
[Chloe smiles] I didn’t.. I thought he was teaching me a lesson.
Boys:
[Glen looks at Hannah, whispers] Do *not* get hot for him.
Girls:
[Hannah shakes her head, quietly] He’s the one that sees dead people right?
Boys:
[Dom nods] I’m sure he was. And he couldn’t have if you’d won. Hence, the little Shadows 101 primer. She shouldn’t even *have* them. She’s not his childe.
Boys:
[Glen nods, looks at Dom] She’s my *responsibility*. It’s fucking close enough.
Boys:
[Dom looks at Glen] Don’t go turning into Damien on us, now. You’ll lose all your appeal.
Boys:
[Glen smirks] I can think of worse guys to emulate.
Girls:
[Chloe shakes her head] He actually taught me a couple..
Boys:
[Dom looks at Chloe] Well, that changes everything. If you knew them and didn’t use them, perhaps you *did* need a lesson.
Boys:
[Brennan whispers to Peyton] And I thought *I* could be an asshole.
Girls:
[Chloe shakes her head] One I did and one I didn’t. [shrugs]
Girls:
[Peyton whispers back to Brennan] He’s usually not quiet this assholey.
Boys:
[Brennan nods]
Boys:
[Dom nods, looks back at the cells] I heard a rumor we were holding an honest to god gypsy. Is there any truth to it?
Girls:
[Mia looks over at Dominic] Yes there is.
Boys:
[Dom looks at Mia, smiles] Show me.
Girls:
[Mia walks over to the cage holding Kat] She even speaks Romanian.
Boys:
[Dom walks over and looks in] Really? Like our illustrious king. I’m surprised he or Lucien didn’t snatch her up.
Boys:
[Glen shakes his head] Lucien got derailed by a tiny little redhead who told him he needed her.
Boys:
[Dom smiles, nods] Typical. [watches Kat] A little rough around the edges, isn’t she?
Boys:
[Akhiro whispers to Van] Of everyone that’s been down here, this is the first one that actually *feels* like a predator.
Boys:
[Van nods]
Girls:
[Kat sits on her cot, her back very straight, head up, eyes bright, barefoot, with a pair of jeans and a midrif top, all of the brightest colors she could lay her hands on, Kat’s eyes lock on Dominic as he looks in at her, Mia quietly] She cleans up well though.
Boys:
[Dom smiles] Oh, I don’t doubt that at all. [to Kat] What’s your name?
Girls:
[Kat stands and in a very thick Romanian accent] I am Princess Katiana Pelligrino.
Boys:
[Dom arches a brow] Princess? A royal gypsy?
Boys:
[Dom smiles] Insofar as gypsies have royalty, anyway.
Girls:
[Kat nods still in her thick accent] Yes, I am royalty.
Boys:
[Dom watches her, still smiling] Is the term “gypsy” offensive to you?
Girls:
[Kat still keeping her eyes on his] It is not. I am proud of my heritage.
Boys:
[Dominic nods] All right. [in a slightly amused tone] It’s rather rude of us to keep a royal personage locked away among the commoners in the filth, don’t you think, Mia?
Girls:
[Mia nods] I do.. I didn’t know she was royal, until just now.
Boys:
[Dom nods] We will rectify this situation immediately.
Girls:
[Mia unlocks the cage that Kat is in]
Boys:
[Dom moves out of the way]
Girls:
[Kat walks over to the door] Thank you.
Boys:
[Dom nods] Of course. [looks at Mia] I would like you to take her upstairs. Find her something to eat, let her bathe and find her some clothes. I’ll get Jace or Seth to fill in for you down here.
Girls:
[Mia nods] As you wish. Shall I put her in your rooms?
Boys:
[Dom nods] Yes.
Girls:
[Mia nods] I will see to it. [looks at Kat] Come on then.. [Heads out of the dungeon to take care of things, Kat follows]
Boys:
[Dom watches them leave] If she’s a princess, I’m still human.
Girls:
[Silver laughs] That’s great. Yet she interests you.
Boys:
[Dom looks at Silver, smiles] She interests me simply because she insists she’s a princess. I’m intrigued by that. Gypsies are known liars and thieves, however, so we should probably check our pockets.
Girls:
[Silver smiles] That’s great. You’re gonna be checking for all your shinies every time she’s close to you.
Boys:
[Dom nods, smiles again] Which should make life rather interesting, don’t you think?
Girls:
[Silver grins] Until she tries to steal your cock ring while you’re fucking her.
Boys:
[Dom laughs] Please. I’d probably enjoy that. [smiles] And I’d let her just to watch her decide whether she had the audacity to actually try and pawn it.
Boys:
[Glen smirks] Do I or don’t I hock the platinum cock ring. Oh, the dilema.
Girls:
[Silver looks at Ro] This is going to be very interesting to see what happens. [whispers] He’ll probably end up making her his slave.
Boys:
[David laughs] Shit. Fuck that. Imagine the pawnbroker tryin’ to decide if he should buy it or send her to a porn shop.
Girls:
[Hannah laughs] Are you kidding, the pawn broker won’t know what it is and when she tells him he’ll flip shit.
Boys:
[Van laughs, nods to David] No shit, right. “On the one hand.. it’s platinum. I buy platinum. On the other hand.. can I really sell a platinum cock ring and *still* consider myself a pawn shop?”
Boys:
[Ro smiles at Silver] And on the other hand.. do porn shops actually do buy backs?
Boys:
[Akhiro shudders] God, I hope not.
Boys:
[Tristan blinks, laughs] Oh.. ew.
Boys:
[Ethan and Conrad crack up]
Girls:
[Hannah laughs] Would *you* but a used cock ring? I would think that’s like a girl buying a used vibrator.
Boys:
[Akhiro looks at Hannah, smiles] I’m sure I speak for all of us when I say we wouldn’t buy *any* used sex toy.
Girls:
[the girls all shudder, Summer] Oh gross.
Girls:
[Hannah nods] Exactly.
Boys:
[Ro nods] However, that doesn’t mean that some.. less reputable.. shops *wouldn’t* in fact buy them back, repackage them and sell them as new. Think about that the next time you’re on the sleazy side of town looking for condoms.
Girls:
[Silver shudders]
Girls:
[Chloe groans] Eeew
Boys:
[Christopher looks at Ro like he’s appalled] I can’t believe you even *think* about things like that.
Boys:
[Ro looks at Christopher, smiles] I’m sorry. Mostly.
Girls:
[Silver looks at Glen, puzzled]
Boys:
[Glen looks at Silver, smiles] Please tell me that look isn’t “what’s wrong with that?” or anything even remotely like it.
Boys:
[Dominic summons Seth and continues his walk around the dungeon while the others discuss used sex toys]
Girls:
[Silver laughs]No.. I was wondering about your tentacles.. do *they* count as used sex toys and what happens to the stuff when they dissipate.
Boys:
[Glen arches a brow] *Why*, Sil? Now *everyone’s* gonna be wondering that.
Boys:
[the boys crack up]
Girls:
[Silver shakes her head, smiles] You asked.
Boys:
[Glen sighs] That doesn’t mean you actually had to answer. Or.. I don’t know.. lie.
Girls:
[The girls shudder again Chloe] Silver that’s…just.. nasty.. and considering he uses different shadows everytime not used.
Boys:
[Dom smiles, listening] They don’t count because they aren’t the same tentacles every time. They’re formed from the shadows. It’s not like he walks around with his own actual set of tentacles attached to him.
Boys:
[Glen looks at Chloe} Thank you. [looks at Dom] You too.
Boys:
[Dom nods] Of course.
Girls:
[Silver smiles, Chloe looks at Glen] No problem
Boys:
[Glen smiles at Chloe] So.. you’ve actually *thought* about this.
Girls:
[Chloe sighs, obviously embarrassed] Well yeah..
Boys:
[Glen arches a brow, still smiling] Interesting.
Boys:
[Glen laughs] Was it in there with “things we could *do*”?
Girls:
[Chloe smiles] I *am* the live anime girl.. what *else* would I think about?
Boys:
[Glen laughs again]
Boys:
[Seth walks in and walks over to Dominic who’s stopped in front of another cell, nods toward Saige] Release her and take her upstairs to Mia.
Boys:
[Seth nods, unlocks the cell door, looks in at Saige] Come on.
Girls:
[Saige smiles stands, looks at Dom] Thank you.
Boys:
[Dom smiles] You’re welcome. We’ll speak later.
Girls:
[Saige goes over to Seth]
Boys:
[Seth closes the door, heads toward the stairs]
Boys:
[Seth closes the door, heads toward the stairs]
Girls:
[Saige goes with him]
Boys:
[Dom finishes his cigarette, drops it on the floor and crushes it out, heads upstairs after them}
Boys:
[the boys watch Dom leave, Van] That was… interesting.
