Louis returns for revenge against Caroline! Dark gets real pissed.
KNOCK. KNOCK. KNOCKKNOCK. On the door! It had to be the third time this week. Clearly the building the doesn’t supervise who comes in.
KNOCKKNOCK. KNOCK. KNOCK. KNOCK. It came again! This one was particularly persistant!
KNO- There standing at the door was a very handsome blond man, now with one raised eyebrow as he looked Dark up and down. “Pardon me, I thought this may be the apartment of Caroline Andraste. Have I the wrong door?”
That came as a surprise to the man at the door, who found himself immediately eye to eye with it once again. A frown on his face, he knocked again. KNOCKKNOCKKNOCK.
KNOCKKNOCKNOCKNOCKKNOCK. He was hitting the door a -smidgen- louder than he was previously.
There was just barely the slightest hint of a twitch at the corner of his eye before he forced a smile. “I am looking for Caroline, and it is very important that I speak with her.” He just faintly had that soft French accent to his voice.
…this was a little more difficult than the man had thought it would be. KNOCK. KNOCK. KNOCK. KNOCK. KNOCK.
Now the man was getting frustated! He knew the guy was lying, he hadn’t even given his name yet. KNOCKKNOCKKNOCKKNOCKKNOCK.
This time he stuck a foot in the doorway, in case the door was slammed again. And a hand over the frame. “Caroline. It is a surprise, yes. Would you give me the time to speak with you?” He cast a look at the naked one in the room. ” …without your, how you say, lover? Alone?”
“Caroline, I beg you just for a few moments. One last favor to your husband?”
“That is all I need, ange.” Louis stepped in to the room, looking around curiously even as she left to get dressed. It didn’t LOOK like another man lived here, but obviously it was a normal occurance!
Vlamerias: *Vlamerias was just about to greet Dark when he growled and began attacking the walls! And by the way he was screaming the Warrior Lady’s name … this was not good!* -Dark
Louis finally settled on the couch after counting how many rooms in the place. He nudged aside that blanket to sit. “Your place suits you, Caroline.” he said out loud.
Vlamerias: MOMMY!! *She POOFED! into devil form and flew around the castle to find her!* MOMMY!! QUICKLY!! IT’S DDDDAARRKK!! -Dark
Evangeline: *Evangeline stepped inside to find a very startled Meri! She had a basket of mushrooms she was hunting down. Food for the devil rats!* What’s the matter? Did he get in to another fight again?
“Louis, Louis… Saying my name to be sure I am real?” he cast a humored smile, but it quickly faded to a frown. “Not human. Not anymore. There are things I did that I regret, Caroline. …I have been searching a long time to make them right.”
Vlamerias: Warrior Lady brought him here with a spell! But he’s not very happy! And he’s destroying the walls! *Or trying to! Gabriel had made the walls exceptionally strong but still–! He was going to startle the devil rats!* -Dark
Evangeline: *That didn’t sound good! Must have been a bad fight! Evangeline followed Meri until they found Dark, having one hell of a big fit!* UM DARK… ! *Eeep! She ducked back behind the door. Maybe stepping in the room wasn’t a good idea!*
“There was no body in the ashes. I had suspected, hoped you escaped.” Louis stood from the sofa to step across the room. And thought she backed away when he drew near, he caught her by the arms. “I needed to know. I tried to find you. Catch up to you. Then I was made an offer and I accepted. For YOU I am no more a human.”
Evangeline: Were you asking her questions you didn’t want to hear the answers to again? *One peek around the corner… he looked far too mad for it to be a simple fight.* Will you tell us what happened?
Evangeline: Blast it… Gabriel IS a psychic! *…not a good time to make jokes, but it was amazing his sense of things! Was that because he was bonded to her, the same way she could do strange things now too?* That was such a long time ago, I don’t think Caroline would get cozy with him!
“No. That wasn’t what I was thinking.” Louis was calm, even as he ran his fingers through his hair. “I was weak. Full of fear. I made a mistake that cost me my wife. My life. Hve you not done things you regret? Wanted to take it back? Make things they way they used to be?”
Vlamerias: Oohh! Maybe we should all check on Warrior Lady, Mommy! To make sure she’s not being charmed! -Dark
Evangeline: …I am sure she will handle it like a mature lady would do. And she deserves the chance to do so! *Evangeline tapped her chin for a moment. But nodded at Meri.* Yes, we should check on her. I can’t imagine how overwhelming it must be.
Gabriel: You are staying here. Evangeline and Vlamerias will go alone. *He gave Evangeline a kiss on the forehead.* -Dark
Evangeline: …You might EAT him! Caroline should decide for herself what to do about him, right Dark? Haven’t you told her she should?
Vlamerias: Let’s go, Mommy! Bye bye Glaer and Dark! *She waited until Evangeline was ready and then POOFED them into Warrior Lady’s living room!* -Dark
“But you ARE still my wife, ange.” Any other comment Louis was about to make had been cut short by the sudden appearance of a woman and child! Another curious raise of his eyebrow. “You have company.”
Evangeline: No? I’m sorry! I wanted to invite you over for lunch today… *Evangeline tilted her head. If this was Louis, he wasn’t human. Demon maybe? Something about him was very good at hiding what he was!* I’m Evangeline and this is Meri, and you are?
Vlamerias: OOhh! Lunch! And I get to pick dessert, yes, Mommy? -Dark
“Louis Depaul. It is a pleasure to make your aqauintance.” He took Evangeline’s hand and kissed the back of it in a low bow. He found her very curious. “You are a friend of my wife’s…?”
Evangeline: Yes, you can pick dessert! Hmm… Why don’t you AND Mr. Depaul come to lunch? I was really hoping to have you come and visit today.
Vlamerias: Oohh! We can throw a lunch party! Or um … something …! *The devil rats would love it!* -Dark
“It would be my pleasure to join a Queen for lunch, even if mon ange cannot attend. Though, might I inquire, was Dark the gentleman from before…?”
Vlamerias: *She blinked once, then twice!* How would you know about Dark? -Dark
Evangeline: Ahem, that’s probably why Dark is so mad. *She leaned to mumbled to Meri, before straightening and grinning!* Dark is my son, and he has been living with Caroline for a bit now. You can talk to him at lunch and meet my husband too!
Vlamerias: *She blinked and her mouth formed a big “O” before it closed.* -Dark
Vlamerias: But it’s not a lunch party if we don’t get to prepare first! We don’t get to throw parties very often! -Dark
Evangeline: That’s true. And I want it to be special if we have a special guest too. Um… I know, you can explore the courtyards! You probably have a lot to talk about?
“Centuries to discuss. I would like to finish our conversation, Caroline.” he even offered her his hand.
Vlamerias: *OOhh! They would have to find things for Dark to do!* Let’s go then! *And then they POOFED! appearing in the spring courtyard!* -Dark
Evangeline: Wonderful! All right Meri, we’ll go get lunch ready. *She took Meri’s hand to lead her away. Now Caroline could handle the man and be safe while doing it! …Evangeline wasn’t sure what to do about Dark though!*
Gabriel: *Gabriel turned to go! Evangeline and Vlamerias were back with Caroline and someone new in tow.* -Dark
“You have very interesting friends in this life, Caroline.” Louis said with some humor. He was already turning away, with his hands clasped behind his back and taking the idea of exploring the courtyard seriously!
Gabriel: *He turned slightly and waited for Dark to continue.* -Dark
Vlamerias: *She looked up at Evangeline, now in her human form!* What are we going to do about him, Mommy? *She asked, meaning Louis more than Dark!* -Dark
“A demon. How I came across them was an accident, but they knew of you.” A frown on his face, he stopped to turn to her. “I didn’t know you were human once. I found that intruiging.”
Evangeline: I really don’t know, Meri. We’ll have to see what Caroline thinks. *She was taking Meri off to the kitchens to see about what could be made for lunch!* Of course, if it were -me- I would let Gabriel do something wicked. I don’t think he loved her at all. Things like that don’t happen when you love someone!
Vlamerias: Let me bite him, Mommy! For doing that to Warrior Lady! -Dark
Evangeline: WE can’t bite him. …well, not unless he tries to hurt her. Then it’s fair game! *They could have a very English Tea Party lunch! With tiny sandwiches and everything! Caroline would appreciate it, even if she’s upset right now! So Evangeline was digging things out of the fridge!*
“Malsuada? No.” he didn’t offer any sort of explanation who it was, however. Louis turned to walk again. “You should have told me before we married. Things might have been different. About how you became a demon. The wars you fought and lives you lived. You seem to have a reputation amongst devils.”
Evangeline: How about you find us something nice to do wear while I fix up lunch? I think an old fashion English tea lunch would be brilliant!
He was silent for several moments. Taking more interest in the courtyard garden than the conversation. “I have wondered what sort of woman can kill a child. That is still one thing I have yet to understand.”
Evangeline: *Her crown! Immediately she was smiling and nodding! There was never a reason to wear it, and running around Oracle with it might have been too strange even for her!* Yes, I would like that! Caroline called me her Queen, I should dress like one! Maybe it will be intimidating?
Gabriel: *Gabriel appeared from behind, lifted one of Evangeline’s hands and kissed the knuckles.* You are going to wear your crown. I am delighted. -Vlamerias
“Circumstances are tricky things. Is murder still murder when the circumstances have changed.” his serious expression shifted to a slow charming smile. “…but that is too much for such a beautiful day. This new family of yours, are you happy?”
Evangeline: Will you? I can’t be a good Queen without a King too! I think that man needs a good scare, anyway. Hmm… And where is Dark?
Gabriel: Evangeline, you had me when you mentioned a good scare. *He smirked.* Dark is practicing. -Vlamerias
Evangeline: Practicing for what? Oh, I suppose that is a good distraction until lunch at least. *Speaking of which, she was going to make some nice tea and maybe little sandwiches! And scones! Those were good!*
Gabriel: *He was gone, in classic Gabriel style! Probably to find his own clothes! He could always summon his crown!* -Vlamerias
“I wanted to speak with you. My wife should owe me that much.” Louis had that serious look again. Frowning deep. “When you were gone, I could not stay in town. My life was over, Caroline. Because of you.” With that he was turning away and heading back towards the castle to wander inside.
Dark: *Dark was watching from the balcony! But when Louis passed by, he dropped a few water balloons on his head! See, how the asshole liked this!!* -Vlamerias
Strange and unexpected, though Louis didn’t bother to look up, he did hold a hand over his head. Those water balloons hit something invisble and not a drop of water splashed him. There was only a smirk on his face when he stepped in the castle!
Evangeline: *Evangeline could fix things up quick when she wanted to! Especially with help from a little devil and little red devil rats! Now she was walking things back and forth from the kitchen to a small dining room and setting the table nice and pretty!* We should tell everyone that things are ready! I need to change my clothes, though!
Dark: *He growled and slammed his fist against the stone pillar, muttering under his breath! The devil rats skittering past him, paused to stand on their hind legs and look at him as if wondering what was going on.* Nothing. I’ll get him next time.
Evangeline: Thank you, very much. *She leaned to kiss Meri’s forehead as she took the dress.* Can you fetch everyone for me? I’ll only take a second!
Dark: *Dark was pacing the corridor! He occassionally took a peek at Caroline in the courtyard. On one hand he wanted to talk to her, on the other hand he wanted to throttle her! Sending him away like that … the nerve!*
Evangeline: *This was going to be fun! …at least until someone got mad and spells or weapons were thrown around! Evangeline was dressing herself as quickly as possible!*
Louis found the inside of the castle peculiar! He had intended to wander around for a bit, see what he could discover. But the halls seemed to have their own intentions. He found himself setting in to the dining room far sooner than he wanted to. Like a gentleman, he waited ever so patiently!
Gabriel: … On the other hand, if the Warrior Lady wishes to go, she may. I trust you said everything you felt needed to be said to your husband, Caroline. *And here Gabriel was, walking toward Caroline from behind, pulling on a long overcoat that was pure black. He really was dressed like a King and he even had the crown on his head.*
Gabriel: You know as well as I, Evangeline always has others’ best interests in mind. I am curious myself. But since you are standing here, I assume you were unable to glean from your husband why is he here, how, and who is responsible.
Gabriel: My thanks, Vlamerias. You should summon Dark to Evangeline’s party now. Our guest is already at the dining room.
Dark: I’m not coming. *He glanced away.* I don’t want to see that asshole.
Evangeline: *She loved wearing pretty dresses and getting and excuse to dress up! The crown Gabriel had made her was in silver with aquamarine and amethyst! Possibly because he knew they were her favorites! So when she stepped in to the dining room, she was grinning and pleased as a cat, despite the unusual guest!* Good afternoon! …No on else has arrived yet?
Vlamerias: But you have to …! I … I … ! *She started to sniffle as her eyes swelled with tears! And then she began to cry!*
Dark: Don’t … *Dark muttered, hearing her sniffle.* No … Anything but … *It was too late! Meri was crying! And damnit, he didn’t have the heart to yell at her or disappear on her! He clamped his hands over his ears.* Just … just stop crying already!
Louis bowed with respect, looking only a slight bit awkward at the sight of Evangeline! “Not yet, your most brilliant highness. I am afraid my wife is a bit put off from seeing me today. May I say, you look exquisite?”
Gabriel: *Gabriel closed his eyes, opened them, and then smirked at Caroline’s back. Sometimes, sometimes she made it so very easy …*
Evangeline: Thank you! I was hoping lunch would make her feel a bit better. Caroline is very kind to us and I don’t like it when she is upset. *Evangeline didn’t like to make threats, and it probably wasn’t a very obvious warning. Especially when she was still smiling!*
“From what I have learned, she has settled within your gracious company quite well.”
Dark: … Grr … Fine. Fine! FINE! I’ll go! She’s … stop CRYING!! *He winced! And he thought Gabriel’s roar as Darkness was bad! It had nothing on Meri’s wail up close and personal at point blank range!*
“But I am no stranger, ange. I am family, yes?” He replied with a bright smile. “What of your lover and her Highness’ son? Will he be attending as well?”
Dark: *He was ready to curse! But then everyone else, except Gabriel was there … and Evangeline! He stalked past them to sit down at a seat cleverly marked “DARK” on a name card. He’d better not be sitting next to Louis!*
Evangeline: He will- Oh! Here he is! *Ignoring Dark’s scowling, Evangeline tugged Caroline’s arm to sit her in the chair across from Dark. She had a seat for Louis next to Caroline and one for Meri next to Dark! And she and Gabriel would get to sit at each end. Perfect for reaching over to pinch someone, or in a worst case hit someone with a candle stick!* Sit, please!
Louis had a seat and despite the obvious mood, he still seemed to be in good spirits. “I appreciate the trouble you have gone. Had I known I would be dining with such fine company, I might have dressed for the occasion.”
Evangeline: *A small grin at Meri! Evangeline slipped in to her own chair.* I wish I could wear it all the time, but that’s never so easy when teaching hunters!
“I am curious to meet the man Caroline has pledged her loyalty to. I suspect he must be extraordinary for a roaming woman to remain stationary.”
Dark: *Dark had his arms crossed and looked everywhere BUT at the people at the table!*
Evangeline: Don’t worry Meri, he likes to be late. That is what a King does, isn’t it? *A simple joke as she poured a cup of tea and nudged Dark to pass the teapot to him.* Um, Louis, I was wondering. Why has it been so long since you have come to see Caroline?
Dark: *He huffed. Did he *have* to look at someone … He saw Evangeline with the teapot, took it from her, and contemplated flying it at Louis’ face. But he didn’t need it flying back at him or hitting Meri or Caroline or Evangeline … He settled for pouring some tea in his own cup instead and then pouring some for Meri before handing it to her!*
“Alas, it is not from wont of trying. It seems that our dearest ange never wishes to be found. I would think I have reached her at last, only to find she had been gone ages ago. Never to stay in the same place for too long. Well…. until now? Stories of interesting people have reached far across the world.” Louis took the teapot with a quiet thank you, poured his tea and offered it to Caroline!
Evangeline: Really? I know people at Oracle gossip all the time, I suppose gossip gets all over the place after awhile. *Now Evangeline took a couple of the small cut sandwiches to set on her plate, before nudging Dark to take it!* Caroline has told me a lot of stories about her life, I was under the impression you were human?
Unphased at being ignored, he set the pot down to smile that charming look at Caroline. “Spoke of me? Yes, I was human. But it was unsuitable for what I needed.”
Gabriel: *Gabriel’s voice spoke in the dining room.* A man who changes with time and necessity. *The door opened and Gabriel walked in, one of the devil rats on his shoulder!*
Dark: *Dark sipped his tea, grumbled under his breath!*
Evangeline: Gabriel! I was just asking Louis some questions! *…What on earth was he doing with that devil rat. How cute!*
Where seeing Evangeline all dressed up had him awkward for a split second, there was a definite different sort of look on his face at seeing Gabriel. Louis cleared his throat and nodded his head. “Necessity, yes.”
Gabriel: *He acknowledged the table with a nod, placed the devil rat on Vlamerias’ lap and walked over to Evangeline to give her a kiss on the cheek. He was smirking at Caroline.* It is not often Evangeline gets to host parties. Shall we begin, Evangeline? *He walked to his own chair and sat down.*
Evangeline: *It was too bad Caroline didn’t have Gabriel for her husband, he would have taken care of this for her! …Although Dark might have too if she would have let him! Evangeline was grinning again!* I was just about to ask Louis HOW he’s not human anymore. I’m really curious and I do like to hear stories.
Louis’ previous easy and relaxed demeanor was a little more stiff now. “Ah, such stories are not for the ears of beautiful ladies and young children. Though, I can say it was unpleasant. The things we do for those we once loved, yes?”
Gabriel: *He suddenly had the teapot in his hand and was pouring some tea for himself.* It has been quite awhile, has it not, Louis? Since you and Caroline last saw each other. You have been through much.
“I cannot say I have killed children and villages for the sake of love, but I have paid my prices.”
Dark: *That was it! Dark was lunging across the table at Louis!* You fuckin’ piece of–!!
Evangeline: Don’t curse at the table! *She would chide him for cursing, but not trying to kill the man. That Louis WAS being pretty mean! Evangeline just snagged Dark by the arm before he went jumping over the table!*
Dark: *He muttered but then he sat down, ate a sandwich!*
Gabriel: Please forgive Dark. He is passionate and he cares deeply. Had it not been for Caroline, many bad things would have happened instead. I have learned that everything happens for a reason, good or bad. In the end, it is necessary.
Louis’ smile didn’t fade. …but he did scoot his chair back before he got strangled. “I understand what is necessary. Some that must die for the greater good. What is it called, collateral damages? A shame, but every action has it’s reactions. Every lie it’s consequences.”
Gabriel: *He sipped his tea.* Nothing is ever given for free, that is the law of equivalent exchange. A soul for a chance at power, to save the people you care about … or destroy the one you cared about.
If it made him uncomfortable, he didn’t show it. “No, no it certainly is not. That is the way devils and demons seem to work. Leaving us to be judge and executioner. I know it’s something my wife is well familiar with. Judgement and execution.”
Gabriel: *He was eating a sandwich.* … Apples and chicken salad sandwiches, Evangeline?
Evangeline: Yes, it’s good isn’t it? *This was difficult! Caroline had never let people treat her this way… she was tempted to throw something at the man herself!*
Louis cleared his throat when Caroline exited the room, moving to stand himself. “Pardon me. I should speak things out with my wife. Your hospitality is appreciated.”
Gabriel: *He waited for Louis to leave, and then there were two shadow wolves there who quickly disappeared!* You are beautiful, Evangeline.
Evangeline: *He was rewarded with a bright smile!* Am I, really? Meri picked out the dress for me!
Gabriel: The gown looks beautiful on you but you know you are always beautiful to me.
Dark: *Dark stood! He wanted to see what Caroline and that asshole was up to! He excused himself and left!*
Louis was not smiling now, a dark expression on his face. “Now will you show your colors, Caroline? Will you pull your weapon and slay me down?”
Gabriel: *He sipped his tea.* Louis is not leaving my castle, Evangeline.
Evangeline: *There went Dark, and though she was worried, it was all something they had to work out without her… But Gabriel eased her worry a little bit! She picked up a sandwich to nibble.* What do you think of him? He was baiting her something awful. I am surprised she didn’t walk out sooner… or hit him!
Gabriel: You do not bait someone unless you wish them to react in a way you want them to. It was a wise decision for you to bring him here. There can be no outside influence and Caroline and Dark can deal with him as they see fit.
“Realize it’s your nature to kill, ange, but no that is not why I am here.” Alone again, his confidence had returned. “Your new family, they are interesting. Amazing that you can settle here when you have taken away the families of so many others.”
Evangeline: I’m glad you think so. I was a little worried about him being here, but you said he might be trouble even before we knew he was alive. …how did you know? *She was so curious about it!*
Gabriel: He is a loose end, Evangeline. Loose ends will always trip us when we are going in one direction and looking in the other.
Dark: *Meanwhile, Dark was cursing because he’d been walking all this time and hadn’t come across Caroline or that asshole yet!*
Evangeline: *Chewing thoughtfully, it did make her wonder! How many loose ends did she have? Everyone was bound to have them! Things didn’t always resolve themselves right away!* …I’m glad I don’t have any exhusbands!
Gabriel: *He chuckled softly.* That will make two of us, Evangeline. Or they would be in a world of hurt and humiliation, for not having held onto you better.
“Ah, hell, how many have you sent there, Caroline? My life was over that day you killed those monsters in the town streets. Not a person in town trusted me again. The man that married a monster. Imagine my surprise to realize you were not amongst those ashes. My horror to know what you were WHO you were.”
Evangeline: *She grinned and leaned on the table!* I might have gotten in trouble for meeting you and falling in love with another man, anyway.
“If the shoe fits, ange. How many men have you had after men? Hundreds? Here you are again, robbing the cradle of some boy under the wing of his parents.”
Gabriel: *He smirked.* I would have kidnapped you and made you mine, regardless.
Louis had a smug smirk. “A strong demon needs a strong counter, does it not? Nullification is an interesting gift. I was not going to just allow you to kill me, Caroline. Destroying my life was enough.” Holding his hand out palm up, he summoned a strange looking knife in to his hand.
Dark: *Dark finally found himself in the same place as Louis and Caroline! He pounced for him!*
Quick as could be, Louis had great reflex! He was sidestepping out of the way, now casting his smirk at Dark! “And thus the lover appears. Adults are having a conversation. It would be best if you waited inside.” And before the rescue attempt allowed for his wife to escape, he was throwing out his other hand to cast a spell! A wooden cross appearing behind her and binding her to it with rope and vines!
Evangeline: A truely wicked thing to do! *…but a wicked thing that was fun to imagine! Being taken away by Gabriel!*
Dark: Try and make me, you asshole! *He was lunging for Louis again but he didn’t notice the two shadow wolves who appeared. The two of them threw their heads back and HOWLED! A howl so loud and mournful, it shook the castle itself!*
Gabriel: *Gabriel was standing and walking over to Evangeline to kiss her forehead when those howls began!* I will return.
“The human and the demon. Interesting to be on the other side, is it not, Caroline? *Louis had that knife glowing, and was going to slash Dark to pieces when he lunged. Those wolves, though! The howling was so awful he had to cover his ears!*
Evangeline: We will be waiting! Let’s clean up a bit, Meri, and get some dessert!
Gabriel: … You appreciate my hospitality. Yet you attack my son and my Knight within the walls of my own castle, you bait her and dare bring that blade into this place. *For once Gabriel honestly sounded angry, and his voice was a low growl!* Louis DePaul, no spell, no trick, nor word ripped from the lips of you or yours, me or mine will set you free from this place.
Dark: *He clamped his hands over his ears when those wolves howled! But even when Gabriel appeared, he had a hard time hearing!*
Louis froze. Even he had known of Gabriel Carnatelli, but he had hoped this would be finished and he would be gone long before! “That woman is MY wife and I retain the rights to deal with her. I have no desires to deal with you or yours.” He hissed back with more venom than he had the entire day. He didn’t want to deal with them, but he was sure as hell going to defend himself.
Evangeline: I think, planning for the inevitable fight makes it much less stressful to have these parties! *Evangeline stood, just long enough to clear the plates. Then she was stealing Dark’s seat so she and Meri could share some cake!*
Gabriel: *He was chuckling now, a soft, dark chuckle, his lips pulling back to reveal fangs.* From the lips of your own wife, a divorce hence any rights you had to deal with her is null and void. I and Dark stand as witness. He as Prince of Darkness and I as the True Vampire and Darkness Incarnate. *The wolves released Caroline with their sharp claws.* Tell me, Louis, do you still possess a soul.
Louis’ smug smirk was back again. “No. Ruins your plan to take it, does it not? My soul to destroy Caroline Andraste. A price well worth paying to rid the world of such a plague.”
Evangeline: They might like eating the fodo everywhere, but helping to clean it up not so much! We could do it at Oracle, though!
Gabriel: *He tilted his head slightly, still smirking.* I merely asked. What I truly wish for … are your memories.
The confusion on his face showed how he couldn’t grasp what that meant! But the moment it dawned on him, he was moving quick. Taking that knife up in his hands and flinging it, along with it’s spell at Caroline before it was too late!
Gabriel: *Gabriel twisted the space between Caroline and that knife and the knife disappeared!* Louis DePaul, for fixing your former wife to a wooden cross, I will leave you suspended on an icy tree, covered in ice. You will suffer blindness, frostbite, and starvation for twenty four hours. After the twenty four hours are done, you will be taken down, fed, your sight restored, your needs tended by a phantom who resembles she you despise the most. You will sleep and when you awaken, you will be back on that tree, covered in ice, starving, frosbitten, and blind. *The wolves returned to his side.* Take him down to the dungeon. His imprisonment starts immediately. *The wolves were pouncing on Louis and all three sunk through the floor!*
Gabriel: You deserve it. *Then he turned and walked away, leaving Caroline and Dark alone together.*
Evangeline: *Enjoying cake with Meri, She nodded!* The chefs might not enjoy it, but it makes for good teaching to hunters having them do chores!
Dark: *He was on the floor but he stood up then, looked at Caroline, walked out! He’d go get his things from the loft later, maybe when she was asleep. He still had a room here at the castle.*
Vlamerias: That is so true, Mommy!
Dark: *There was so much he wanted to say to her, yell at her, strangle her … So he returned to the loft a little sooner than he had expected, used a spell to pack everything, remember his guitar.*
Gabriel: *Gabriel was back to his normal black clothes, coat, and the crown was gone as he walked back into the dining room.*
Dark: *He wasn’t going to talk to her. He wasn’t going to talk to her. He wasn’t going to–!* For crying out loud, go to sleep already!
Evangeline: Are things okay now? *He was only gone for a bit and she had missed him. …but she was very curious as to what happened!*
Gabriel: Caroline’s loose end is tied up and currently serving eternity in the dungeon. *He kissed her forehead.*
Dark: It wouldn’t be the first time you went to sleep in the middle of the day! *And then he was mumbling something about women and stubborness and stubborn women!*
Evangeline: *There was a surprised expression!* We have a dungeon?
Gabriel: Of course. It would not be a castle without a dungeon.
Dark: Like you care! Just go to sleep! That’s what you need! Rest! Sleep! Snoring away while the whole world passes you by!
Evangeline: I’ve never found it! *…then again, she might not want to see another dungeon! They never were very fun and always kind of creepy!*
Gabriel: I made sure you do not come across of it, Evangeline. *He stood behind her to lean forward, wrap his arms around her.* Come to bed with me, my Queen. *He was nuzzling her neck.*
Dark: I’d rather be a jackass than a lazy woman! *He yelled! Not his best work but he wasn’t in his top form at the moment! … That was his story and he was sticking to it!*
Evangeline: To leave Meri alone with all of this cake? *She had to think about it, just for a second!* I might..
Gabriel: I believe Vlamerias deserves all that cake. *He was nibbling on her neck now, stroking her cheek.*
Dark: Oh yeah! Well at least I make good use of my big mouth! If someone comes by and mocks the shit out of me, I’m going to make sure he knows who the hell he’s dealing with! *So much for Caroline showing she was mature! He was grabbing for his things and marching for the door!*
Evangeline: She did do a very good job today. But who will play with her if we go to bed early? *Evangeline was trying not to grin!*
Dark: Yeah, maybe I will! *He was sick of this! He grabbed his bags and marched out the doors!*
Dark: *It would serve her right! He didn’t need her! Instead of heading back to the castle, he went to the park!*
