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.

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}

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’.

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:
{Kendra walks back in, looks at Van and Akhiro} I miss anything important? {heads over to the couches}
(9:47:42 PM) The Universe:
{Van shakes his head} Not yet.
(9:48:01 PM) The Universe:
{Akhiro looks at Kendra as she walks over} I think we were waiting on you.
(9:48:44 PM) The Cosmos:
{Kendra nods, looks at Peyton} So what are you going to do?
(9:49:07 PM) The Universe:
{Tristan stands next to Peyton, listening}

What Your Love Has Done to Me

(2:37:39 PM) The Universe:
{Van wakes up just in time to shower, dress and grab something to eat before the sun sets, sits across from Akhiro and Sang, amused at the way their sleeping as he finishes a sandwich made from the food brought up for lunch}
(2:38:43 PM) The Universe:
{Akhiro wakes up feeling Van’s eyes on him, blinks away the sleep, glances around} Shit. What time is it?
(2:39:01 PM) The Universe:
{Van smiles} About that time.
(2:39:24 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang curls tighter into Akhiro, mutters something and clenches her fist in his shirt}
(2:39:58 PM) The Universe:
{Akhiro looks at Sang, smiles, quietly} I *really* don’t want to wake her.
(2:40:25 PM) The Universe:
{Van nods} Then I will. {looks at Sang} Sang!
(2:41:02 PM) The Universe:
{Akhiro looks at Van, arches a brow} Not nice, Van.
(2:41:12 PM) The Universe:
{Van smiles} What? She woke *me* up today.
(2:42:03 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang frowns and growls} Go ‘way. Comfortable. {buries her face in Akhiro’s chest} Too early for school, bro.
(2:42:55 PM) The Universe:
{Van smiles at Sang’s response} Sang! Get up. The vampires are going to be up soon.
(2:44:00 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang’s eyes fly open} Shit! Damien! {looks at Akhiro, smiles sheepishly} Sorry.
(2:44:17 PM) The Universe:
{Akhiro smiles} It’s okay.
(2:44:43 PM) The Universe:
{Akhiro looks at Van, still smiling} Though I think Van enjoyed that entirely too much.
(2:45:13 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang looks at Van, frowns} You’re evil.
(2:45:49 PM) The Universe:
{Van looks at Sang, smiles} I’m *adapting*. Eye for an eye is the law of this jungle, right?
(2:46:05 PM) The Universe:
{Akhiro laughs}
(2:46:19 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang shakes her head} At least I didn’t *yell* at you.
(2:47:08 PM) The Universe:
{Van nods} True. But I think the yelling balances out the “only two hours of sleep” part rather sufficiently.
(2:47:32 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang looks at him} It was *important*.
(2:47:50 PM) The Universe:
{Van looks at her} So is this.
(2:48:41 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang looks at him, nods} Still I was gentle about waking you up.
(2:50:19 PM) The Universe:
{Van smiles} Two hours of sleep. We can go back and forth all night or you can eat something. You want some coffee?
(2:51:33 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang smiles} True.. and yes food, and I can get the coffee. {Stands}
(2:52:16 PM) The Universe:
{Van shakes his head} Sit. I’ve been awake longer. {stands and walks over to the bar} You might want to straighten your hair and clothes while you’re at it.
(2:52:58 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang frowns but straightens herself} Better?
(2:53:09 PM) The Universe:
{Akhiro laughs} Shit. {runs his hand through his hair to straighten it} As long as we don’t look freshly fucked, we’re good.
(2:53:43 PM) The Universe:
{Van looks over at Sang as he makes coffee, smiles} Stunning. No one will ever know you were asleep in Akhiro’s arms.
(2:54:18 PM) The Universe:
{Akhiro laughs again} Damn, Van. {smiles} Someone’s feeling better.
(2:54:27 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang shakes her head} Hell they can probably smell that. {looks at Van, blinks} I wasn’t.. we didn’t..
(2:54:49 PM) The Universe:
{Van smiles again, shakes his head} Never crossed my mind.
(2:55:28 PM) The Cosmos:
{Sang looks at Akhiro}

Blue Mornin’ Can’t Ya See

(1:39:23 AM) The Cosmos:
{Sang looks over at him, quietly} I might be over stepping.. but. I think your vampire and my vampire are friends.. close at least.
(1:40:01 AM) The Universe:
{Akhiro smiles} Considering she told us that she’s the one that set you two up, I’d say so.
(1:40:30 AM) The Cosmos:
{Sang nods} I could.. talk to him…see what’s up.
(1:41:33 AM) The Universe:
{Akhiro nods} With which part of it? And does Hayden strike you as the kind of woman that would, I don’t know… “suggest” to Kendra that her boyfriend was fucking around?
(1:42:46 AM) The Cosmos:
{Sang shakes her head} I don’t think she would. {Frowns} I really think she was trying to give you a heads up, more than anything.
(1:43:24 AM) The Universe:
{Akhiro looks at Sang} I can’t really explain it, but the way she said the things she was saying, the assumptions she was making and just.. most of that discussion felt.. kind of sinister to me. I mean, I felt like even if Kendra had fucked us into comas, I *still* would’ve told Hayden nothing happened, you know?
(1:44:03 AM) The Universe:
{Akhiro shakes his head} Maybe she was too callous about it or something.

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 8

Boys:
[meanwhile, out in the hall, Lucien looks over and down at Sang] So… what is it you wanted to talk to me about?
Girls:
[Sang looks up at Lucien] Damien and Simone. I don’t trust her. She went from “oh my god vampires must kill” to ” Sweet I’m a vampire” way too fast and she’s…well she was talking to Glen and being all repentant and ‘oh my god I killed someone” and everything then Damien walked in and suddenly she was laughing and smiling and acting like it was natural and normal and they were best buds. And I *really* don’t want to be her next victim.
Boys:
[Lucien nods] He totally should’ve killed her. I will stand by that til my dying day.
Boys:
[Lucien lights a cigarette] So what are we thinking? Trying to impress daddy or hot for daddy?
Girls:
[Sang looks ahead] I’m not sure. But either way… I’m not sure Daddy should be part of her equation. I get why he did what he did.
Boys:
[Lucien smirks] Oh, I get why he did it. I just sometimes wish he’d be less.. understanding.. and a bit more.. vindictive. I don’t think any woman that tries to stake one of us should be part of the equation. Unless it’s me in which case if she tried to stake *me* I probably did something to deserve it, but he’s not me and if there’s any vampire walking that doesn’t deserve it, it’s him.
Girls:
[Sang nods] Lucien, I *really* like him. More than I probably should at this point. We were just walking and talking about the .. things. And she came out of nowhere and staked him in the back. [Closes her eyes] I swear I felt it. And all I could think was “What do I do *now*?” [opens her eyes] I’m not prone to violence and I’m not usually cynical and broody.. but this has made me all of those things and I don’t like it. What kind of person stakes someone who looks like Chloe? Christ. She looks 8 you know?
Boys:
[Lucien shakes his head] A very cold one. And it has been my experience that people cold enough to do that don’t suddenly become raging infernos from spending a couple of hours with a piece of wood sticking out of them. [looks at her] Damien is perfect in every way. Far be it for me to say otherwise. However.. his vision is blurred and his instincts are dulled by proximity. He’s the do gooder that keeps trying to help wounded animals no matter many times he’s been bitten. And he hasn’t been bitten enough, been hurt enough. He needs to focus more on what he has that’s working and less on those things he thinks he can *make* work. That’s his weakness. His fatal flaw.
Boys:
[Lucien takes a drag] Damien has amazing instincts and judgment of character. As long as he keeps his distance.
Girls:
[Sang nods] I don’t want her to die. Well I do, but she already did.. [frowns] Damien thought maybe when the king heard what happened and how that he’d remove her from his..care. Because of how she was turned.
Boys:
[Lucien smiles] He did, did he? [looks at her] The thing is, there are rules to turning people. We can’t just run around doing it or we’ll be overrun with vampires and not enough people to feed them. And that’s bad for everyone. This, however, is really more like a prisoner of war scenario. And as such, I definitely think the king will have an opinion on how the fledgling should be handled and by whom. The fact is, she attacked our people. *That* is the bottom line. And at last count, Damien wasn’t on the list of those responsible for punishing crimes against us.
Boys:
[Lucien shrugs] Ultimately, it doesn’t matter who turned her or whether *they* punished her. Her crime matters and people.. victims.. Chloe… deserves her pound of flesh as well.
Boys:
[Lucien looks at her] Damien was trying to protect her out of some misplaced sense of fairness and justice, but is it really justice as it stands? I doubt Chloe would think so.
