Heartbreak and Romance 004: Working Together (TBC)

[Severance thinsk hes made a sex adict out of an angel without doing anything!] -04:49 Sep 14
[Hanael has discovered a fun new thing! And now…. it’s making work difficult!] -04:50 Sep 14
Hanael: It was one of her typical singles events at the Service. Which meant lots of moving from person to person, chatting it up, introducing people and getting a good idea of people’s personalities and quirks when it came to speaking in social situations. Normally, Hana was spot on. ….Today…. She couldn’t stop grinning at her guest! -04:52 Sep 14
Severance: He had dressed smartly, a dark navy evening jacket over a red collared shirt and navy pants and had found himself a tavle that he was sharing with Hanael when she could and a plate of sausage rolls. Still he was doing less eating and more smiling at her and stroking his chin. He didn’t care that her guests were talking, he just couldn’t take his eyes off her. -04:56 Sep 14
Hanael: Being on the other side of infatuation was such an interesting experience! It was also hard to resist! The moment she felt like she was unnecessary for a few minutes, she escaped. Stepping up next to him with that wickedly devious look. "You can’t just stand around and watch me work, it’s distracting!" -05:01 Sep 14
Severance: "I’m sitting." he said with a grin. "And this night is for singles, something I’m not calling myself anymore." he flashed her a grin. All these singles finding more but I’m the one who gets the best prize of all, not that you’d mtch anyone else without yourself and if you dud it was because it was meant to be, and then I’d take over our… bond." -05:04 Sep 14
Hanael: Hana plopped on to his lap, forgetting the need to be professional or considering what her employees would think. She was craving the physical contact, and it was a weird, but very pleasant feeling! "For a breakup artist, you sure know how to spin a pretty word. Maybe I should put you to work here too, hmm?" -05:08 Sep 14
Severance: "A ‘breakup artist’ working in a dating service. That would be irony but I think think I’m the type. I’m the oposite of the type." he put an arm around her and pushed a sausage roll against her lips. "And maybe I’ve been saving these words for the right person and well… she just fell into my lap!" -05:12 Sep 14
Hanael: The sausage roll was snatched out of his hands and chewed on, while she kicked her feet back and forth and grinning. "Jumped. Jumped in to your lap! Lap falling is reserved for creating a new-meeting moment." Hana leaned to kiss his cheek. He smelled clean, but there was also that spicy demon thing about him. Demons were weird. -05:15 Sep 14
Severance: He immediatly turned to catch her lips with his runnign her tongue against then to get the pastry crumbs before he leaned back. "Either way shes in my lap and I’m very happy about that." -05:19 Sep 14
Hanael: A stolen kiss was an adorable thing! A lick of the tongue though… that was sizzling. Hana chewed on her bottom lip for a second. Then she was throwing her arms around his neck to hug him and nuzzle against his ear. "I had no idea a new spark would be like this! I can’t think about anything other than skipping out on work and leaving with you." -05:25 Sep 14
Severance: He grinned against her cheek. "I’d be more than fine with that but you’d be abandoming your clients and as your business partner I might have to protest. Yu need to work your magic and I’m meant to be giving you new cases as they appear." -05:27 Sep 14
Hanael: Hana was pouting. She spent every day her entire life working, and for once she wanted to skip out and was getting denied! "Okaaay. Work, then. Have you spotted pairings that I shouldn’t get my hopes up over?" -05:29 Sep 14
Severance: "Yes actually." he said "That couple next to the punch bowl, hes been talking to her for about a minute and doesn’t know that thats his ex’s cousin that that she’s going to get into thier business if thyey hook up." -05:31 Sep 14
Hanael: "Well that’s not good! Who he is dating is none of his ex’s business." Hana leaned to get a good look at them. There was a love line, but if they were headed straight to a breakup… She could find a stronger love line. "…so I won’t match them!" -05:35 Sep 14
Severance: "Its going to be difficult for them, that all I’m saying. There are not enough peices in place for me to get a definite picture." he leaned his head against her watching them. "I see a baby too." -05:39 Sep 14
Hanael: "Baby? …then maybe they -should- be together… Um." Hana never had a little helping knowledge about potential futures before! This was trickier than she assumed it would be. She was twisting her mouth up this way and that as she thought about all the potentials. "…this might’ve been easier with just yeses and nos." -05:51 Sep 14
Severance: "Then I need to talk to them. You run this place you can make it happen." he kisses her cheek and nuzzles against it. "Then I’ll have a yes or no." -05:53 Sep 14
Hanael: It was reasonable, and Hana was more than happy to let him go do it. Except… she was in his lap and they were snuggling. And she didn’t want to move. "I guess I should let you. It’s important details to know." …yet, still clinging with her arms around his neck and kicking her feet back and forth. -06:07 Sep 14
[Severance enters.] -06:21 Sep 14
[(Timeout) Severance got too distracted for their own good…] -06:29 Sep 14
Severance: "We don’t have to do it right now." he pointed out. "Now when we’re so comfortable." he kissed the side of her neck and grinned. But we can’t disappear and and do out own thing until I do." -06:29 Sep 14
Hanael: Hana sighed happily, leaning back to smile. "Buuuuut, if we work quicker we can be even more comfortable sooner? It’d be nice not worrying about it or feeling guilty for neglecting it." She cast a quick glance at the room. Guilt wasn’t hitting her yet, but Hana was sure she -would- feel bad… -06:34 Sep 14
Severance: He "By that logic we should say hi to everytone and then run for the nearest alley to get naked." the nipped her neck and nuzzled into it. "But we have to proove we can work together." -06:39 Sep 14
Hanael: A soft giggle slipped out, but he was right. They had to prove they could work together, even if it was just to themselves. Hana reluctantly slipped out of his lap. "Go and talk to them then. …say you are my new business partner!" -06:51 Sep 14
Severance: He stood and stole another kiss. "I’ll see you in a bit Angel." He moves over to the couple and offered his hand. "Hey, I’m Hanael’s new business partner. Mind if I ask you a few questions?" -06:57 Sep 14

Both people ended up shaking his hand, not being surprised to meet one of the employees of the service, Though ‘business partner’ was new! The lady spoke first. “Hello! I didn’t know more than one person owned the business…” -Hanael

Hanael: Hana slipped in to his vacant chair, taking the opportunity to steal more of the little snacks on his plate. With a watchful eye, she made sure to keep tabs on how they responded to him. -07:06 Sep 14
Severance: "I’m new." he said with a pleasant smile. "She wanted to expand and I was more than happy to lend my experties and capital so I’m also semi-working here and paying for the priveledge." he checkled at the joke. "Have you two paired off before? I noticed you really seem to be getting long." he was reading thier energies adn thier destinies and the strings that tied them to fate. -07:09 Sep 14

The lady was suddenly blushing, and the guy was grinning wide. “First time we’ve met, actually.” he responded first. She nodded in agreement, then spoke. “I don’t come to the events very often!” -Hanael

Severance: "Never been to one myself but I’m making sure I’m not sinking my money into a wasted enterprise. Shes a nice girl. I’ll go and mingle." he smiled and grabbed a glass of punch before heading back to the table. -07:20 Sep 14
Hanael: Hana was near bouncing in her seat when he came back, more than a little eager to find out what he could see for their future. Aside from worries about the future, it was still a really neat thing knowing she could use it to make better matches and spare people heartbreak. "And? Aaaaaaand?" -07:25 Sep 14
Severance: "And…. They’re going to get pregnant. Tell the cousin to get stuffed and move to Missisipi to get married." he said sitting oposite her. I saw no beakup, no premature death, no a small seperation but they’ll get over it, its true love." -07:34 Sep 14
Hanael: A loud squeal was followed by her clapping. …and then slapping her hands over her mouth when people turned to look. "Well then…!" she said, after regaining her composure, "That was easy! …But of course, lucky too. I’m sure not everyone will be as simple." Still, Hana was pleased. She was -always- pleased about true love. She wanted to know that everyone she matched would always be together. -07:37 Sep 14
Severance: He sat and sipped his punch. "They’re naming their daughter after you, and sending pictures of her to your e-mail a year from now. And thats all I saw, usualy at this point I’d go on to the next couple. What do you do?" -07:40 Sep 14
Hanael: Naming their baby after her? That’s a little embarrassing, but a sweet gesture! Her face was tinged red and she shrugged, but it was really just out of habit. "I do the same! Though, it’s usually more research for me than arranging. Researching and learing, then a touch here and there to get the ball rolling." -07:44 Sep 14
Severance: He took a roll and stuffed it into his mouth watching her. "You enjoy your job, don’t you." he was grinning as he chewed. "I’ve never enjoyed my job, you’re lucky." -07:55 Sep 14
Hanael: "I adore my job! You could too now. Since we are working together, it won’t be all doom and gloom and tragedy, yes?" Hana scooted closer to him. She liked that she could give him that too. Job happiness. It was strange that a demon didn’t enjoy heartbreak, but she sure wasn’t complaining now. -07:59 Sep 14
Severance: Well thank you for giving me the best gift I’ve had in millenia. A freedom from the tragic side of fatalism. I’d kiss you if I wasn’t likely to drag you under the table for some fun." -08:04 Sep 14
Hanael: "I don’t think they say nice things about demons who kidnap angels under tables!" But the thought amused her, and if it wasn’t her work place she may have preemptively pounced him. With a quick look, she glanced around to see if there were any other obvious things she -should- be doing. …but once that was satisfied, she was tugging on his jacket sleeve. "I want to be alone with you." -08:07 Sep 14
Severance: He stood and waitrd for ehr to do likewise. "I couldn’t agree more Hanael." he gave her a wicked grin and then pulled ehr to him and pressed his lips into hers not caring who saw. "Very much." he sucked on her lip then released her and sighed. "I think you have me wrapped around your finger." -08:10 Sep 14
Hanael: Her smile was wide and it might have even been wicked, if she wasn’t so pleased! "I might! I know all the tricks of seduction, so I am naturally able to charm and entice?" Work and employees were definitely the farthest things from her mind, as she took his hand to lead him through the party. "I live in a suite here at work. It’s upstairs and it’s really not as nice as your apartment, but it’s alone!" -08:13 Sep 14

Heartbreak and Romance 003: Better Than Watching

Hanael: COME MORNING… Hanael was not asleep on her big fluffy sofa in her business lounge or the one in her office. She was curled up in a bed with a big fluffy blanket and a warm body. So snuggly…! She nuzzled against it, almost purring and hugging it tight. This was a wonderful way to start a morning. -05:03 Jul 12
Severance: He flopped and arm over her and burried it in her hair before he even stired, then he opened his eyes and looked at her gropily as if trying to figure out how she got there.. rhen he closed his eyes again and pulled ehr closer. "Didn’t fly away in the night on me I see. Good.. there owuld have been tears." -05:06 Jul 12
Hanael: "I am not a runner, Mister Severance…" she said softly with a grin. Being squeezed was wonderful too! The touching, and the warmth, and the sound of his voice… Hana was infatuated with the feeling. …now if only they didn’t have to work. "My head hurts a little, though… I don’t want to drink any more beers…" -05:10 Jul 12
Severance: "You will.. trust me, I’ll get coffee once you stop.. being.. so… warm.." he yawned and burried his face against her with a sigh. "When do you have to work anyway?" -05:12 Jul 12
Hanael: She opened her eyes, shifting and tilting until she could take a look over him to see the window or a clock. A faint frown forming on her face. "A few hours ago. I shouldn’t have slept in so late." …yet she was settling back on him, peering at him with curiosity. "I could go to work with you today? To a park and we can work together. It would make up for my late start if I did something special…" -05:16 Jul 12
Severance: He opened one eye and peered at her. "Workaholic eh? Alright I’ll ger money for coffee once we’re there and grab some clothes… maybe you should run gt some too and we’ll meet at the park?" he sat up and looked around. "You really know how to make a guy now want to move." -05:19 Jul 12
Hanael: Hana grinned wide. "I like snuggling. Almost as much as kisses." Speaking of kisses. As she shifted to get up, she leaned over him and planted a quick kiss on his mouth. …of course, a quick kiss wasn’t enough, so there was a second more lingering one. "I’ll meet you there, yes. This will be fun!" -05:22 Jul 12
Severance: He grinned catching her hadn in his and squeezing it as she god up before joingin her and stretching. "Yes, yes it will be. ANd a trial run of what might be a long partnership." he rubbed his shoulders and smiled. "I’ll see you there Hana." -05:26 Jul 12
Hanael: Bidding him goodbye with a wave of her hand and lots of giggling, Hana left his place to head back to her apartment. On foot! Because she needed the time to wake up… and get her head together? She felt giddy! Warm and fuzzy feelings, she was so used to being around all the time… and now having them herself. Hana fell in to it fearlessly and was still wallowing in it when she arrived back at the dating service and stepped through the doors. Greetings curious employees and waiting clients with a wistful smile! -05:30 Jul 12
Severance: He showered and got changed quickly before grabbing his wallet and heading to the park. He didn’t know which park but he assumed the one he had pointed out the previous night. It was a nice day and he waited on one of the benches.. something boiling in his stomach that wasn’t entirely familiar… Nerves. -05:40 Jul 12
Hanael: The problem with being the Angel of Romance and finding yourself infatuated was…. you didn’t know what to do with yourself! She knew how to match couples, and what every couple would need for a perfect moment… but she wasn’t so sure what to do for a work date with her brand new, spur of the moment kinda-boyfriend. Should she dress very casual? Should she look like a super model? Hana settled for making sure she was clean and wearing a soft scent. A pretty dress for day time walks and flirting… By the time she left her business, everyone was gossiping and wonder what she was up to. Hanael arrived at the park a little late… but there was a clipboard in her hand and she was glancing around at everything, as alert and curious as ever! -05:46 Jul 12
Severance: He waved to her before standing and heading towards a coffee shop. "You look nice." he ventured as he got to her and took her hand in his. "He himself was just dressed in his ordinaly street clothes. "Got you clipboard I see, I see you don’t ge by feel alone. Probably a good thing." -05:49 Jul 12
Hanael: Holding his hand, she swung it back and forth between then. She was almost skipping, but kept that desire a little more subdued. "I like to be organized, and keep track of things… sometimes I see someone that has a strong love line, but there isn’t an immediate match. So I keep them on my list until I find where I want to guide them. Do you only go by sight and feel…?" -05:51 Jul 12
Severance: "I don’t have to worry about things like looking for matches and love line.. but…" from his pocked he pulled out a small PDA and handed it to her. Since we’re working together, a fill list of every couple from the last year and every one currently being worked on. All in there. Technology theses days.. its pretty amazing." -05:55 Jul 12
Hanael: Hana didn’t look so convinced about technology being amazing. In fact, she was having a very hard time trying to figure out how the little thing worked, and how to navigate through it. "These things are for devils… I like paper! You can keep this and I will scribble on my clipboard." -06:01 Jul 12
[(Timeout) Severance has been fed to the plot bunnies for failure to participate.] -06:31 Jul 12
[Severance enters.] -06:32 Jul 12
Severance: He took it back, pressed a few buttons and a very long list of names, traits, romantic profiles and list of past imcopatabilities came up. "Use this to scroll. And I’m a demon, not a devil." he stopped at the stand and got two take-away coffees and headed back towards the bench. The machine in her hand was a good five years out of date but he liked it… he after all was a lot older. -06:36 Jul 12
Hanael: A coffee in one hand and the pda in her other, she shook the thing a bit, still giving it that untrusting look. "…at least you keep good notes. Oh…! Oooo… This is very good! I never have complete past relationship profiles of people. It is always ever only the most recent or the most troubling one. But this is very good!" Hana plopped on to the bench, tapping her feeting together as she scrolled through the names. Occasionally shaking the thing when she forgot how to scroll it… -06:40 Jul 12
Severance: "Your relationships last… the ones I deal with its often the same people more than once. It helps to have a profile for everyone.. see this is the guy I pointed out to you last night in your business. You see the pattern he fell into? No more patterns for anyone with up working together." -06:45 Jul 12
Hanael: "Well… he needs to stop trying to pick up girls in night clubs. That is not where he should be at all. If something isn’t working, you try a new place." She leaned against the demon’s arm. Tilting her head in thought. "What does he do at the park, though? Running??" -06:51 Jul 12
Severance: "He walks through here every day, probably part of of his fitness regiment, yes." he sipped his coffee. "The girl he was talking to last night usually jog past here at around the same time. They’ve been close to eachother for years and just never met. Odd how that works sometimes." -06:55 Jul 12
Hanael: That had Hana grinning wide. "Like us, yes? In the same places all the time but never meeting? That’s how a lot of really good romances start. Coincidences and accidents." …so all it needed it was an accident. Taking a sip of coffee, she waved a hand as the man went jogging by, his laces coming untied. When he passed by that girl, he would take a comical tumble. Falling over wasn’t in romantic comedies all the time for nothing! Hana was giggling. -06:58 Jul 12
Severance: "I want to go find you, how is that an accident." he teased. "You to be honest we wouldn’t be hading this conversation if you had turned out to be an haunty as angels are meant to be. Stereotyping is not kind on you guys." -07:00 Jul 12
Hanael: "Demons have bad reputations too, you know. Every time I have met demons they haven’t been very nice or friendly. …or have been too friendly and I had to hit them. It is much easier dealing with humans." She was watching him again, chewing on her bottom lip with that inquisitive expression. "What did you think you’d find when you met met…?" -07:04 Jul 12
Severance: "A chubby baby with wings, a bow, and arrows with heart-shaped heads." he joked. "Seroiusly? I had no idea. I’ve had a long tome to mull it over but the idea of a THOU SHALT REMAIM PURE AND VIRTIOUS AS I HOOK YOU UP image never seemed right to me." he leaned agaist her. "Part of the reason I was curious." -07:09 Jul 12
Hanael: hana grinned, seeming to take a great deal of amusement in the whole cherub cupid image. "I’m not pure and virtuous at all! …um… Well, I have not had gratuitous sex, or relations, or love making myself. But I know all about it and I see it all the time. I have to think about it because it’s important for long lasting relationships too?" Hana hooked her arms around his and rest her head on his shoulder. "I was pretty sure you would be like any other demon I have met, lots of stabby things and sexing things and laughing maniacally at the pain of others with fire and pitchforks…" -07:13 Jul 12
Severance: "Sounds like a lot of people I know." he said "But I’d have sex with you if we got that far." he said "I’m not shy about it adn I don’t imagine you are either Ms. ‘I watch it all the time’ angel lady." he jabbed her in the side with his finger. "I have had it before, a while ago but I rememeber how it goes." -07:20 Jul 12
Hanael: She laughed, swatting his hand away and in the process remembering to hand him back his pda. It was a little awkward having it, her coffee, and clinging on him too. But this was very content. Something she never really realized she had been missing until now. "I don’t have a reason to be shy… I think. I am not sure what it will be like when we try it." She rest her chin on his shoulder. If she grinned any harder her cheeks would be sore. "I kind of want to skip work altogether just to see what we can do in one day… I’ve have seen people be this way, but I never thought it would be so compelling." -07:26 Jul 12
Severance: He put the arm holding the pda arounf her shoulders and sighed contentedly. "Hey now we don’t want to rush do we? And we have to see if this working together thing is going to work. I don’t want us to get so wrapped up on the kissign thing that we forget to work.. though…" he turned his head and pressed his lips into hers. I guess we can wait until we go to your business to test in a controlled enviroment, or to a bar tonight. -07:30 Jul 12
Hanael: Of course she knew she needed to keep a good balance of work if she were going to have a romance. …but common sense really did like to fly out the window with a simple kiss. And if she was supposed to be the one that kept the level head, that didn’t seem to be happening, because it was tricky work to move and throw her arms around his neck without spilling her coffee. Just so she could kiss him again and see how long it took before he wasn’t thinking about work any more! -07:34 Jul 12
Severance: "Hmmmmm" he moved his lips against hers slowly as they kissed again and placing his coffee down moved his hand to softly brush his hingertips againsr her cheek. Then he nipped her and smiled against her lips. "You’re going to make this very difficult. Aren’t you." -07:37 Jul 12
Hanael: "I am having a small problem with temptation and self control…" she admitted, but didn’t sound even the slightest bit sorry for it. Hana had been so sure she prefered those slow burn romances, with all of their little intricate sweet moments… and here all she wanted was more touching and more kissing and more exploring all as fast as she could get it. It was something new and exciting! Hana managed to inch herself all the way on to his lap, nuzzling against his cheek and teasing his hair between her fingers. "We wouldn’t get in too much trouble if we worked tonight instead?" -07:42 Jul 12
Severance: "We’re our own bosses." he said movign to kiss her neck and nip it too his nose burried in her scent and hie and caressing the oposide side of her neck. "So we’re free to do what we want today." -07:45 Jul 12
Hanael: She leaned just far enough to set her coffee aside and then it was right back to having her arms around him, and now with her hands free to touch as she pleased. "That means freedom to rush? But I don’t want to scare you…" Saying it really wasn’t stopping her from taking his face in her hands and kissing him before he could reply, either. Running her tongue over his lips to beckon him to open and taking advantage when he did. -07:51 Jul 12
Severance: "Only people you need to worry about scaring is everyone else in this park.." he whispered against her lips before there was no more talkign because his mouth was open and welcoming her tongue with his as his hand slid up her thigh and under her dress. Park full of people or not this was the right moment because it felt right. -07:57 Jul 12
Hanael: Oooo, electric. Under her skin and up her leg, giving her a tickle in her stomach and making her toes curl in her shoes. There was not another person in the world at that moment. Just those sensations and her wonderment with them. Hana slid her finger tips down his neck, tracing the line where his heart beat the strongest. Leaning in him to deepen the kiss and graze her teeth over his tongue. -08:03 Jul 12
Severance: His hand lingered under her dress tracing a line from her thigh across to her stomach makign her dress ride up as he turned under her breakign the kiss to stare into her eyes as his hand passed over her panties… then he leaned in close to ehr ear and whispered softly. "Want to… here… now?" -08:07 Jul 12
Hanael: hana flushed red, and it certainly wasn’t from embarassment. She was chewing on her bottom lip again, debating what he said… they didn’t need to rush. But oh… she really wanted to! She wanted to feel all of it, and even waiting ten minutes was far too long. "Yes now, please." Hana finally nodded, reaching to pluck at his shirt and find a way to slip her hands under it. -08:11 Jul 12
Severance: He pulled his shirt off and hung it over the back of the bench then he was pushing her off of his lap and pushing her dress up and lifting her leg over him to be between them and leaned down to press his lips into hers again his hand moving down to unde his pants and pullhimself free as his hips moved to hers a hand pushign her panties aside to brush his fingers over her his breath catching just to feel her. "You’re about to make move…" -08:16 Jul 12
Hanael: So fast, an so unbelievably shocking. Every little touch before had been butterflies, but this was like jumping in to hot water! Hana’s intake of breath was nothing short of a gleeful surprise… And she was just as quickly running her hands over his chest and stealing a hand between them just to feel what that was like too. "I dunno how that’s gonna go in there…" She gave him a curious squeeze! -08:26 Jul 12
Severance: He looked down at her hand and then kissed her and cradled the back of her head in his hand. "Guide be to you.." he said running his fingers over her again. "I’ll be gentle and take it slowit might hurt but I promise it will be worth it." -08:28 Jul 12
Hanael: She might’ve been worried at the sounds of pain, but a promise was a promise. Hana wasn’t in any frame of mind to stop even if he wanted to. He was already making her shiver and squirm. With a careful pull, she guided him to her. Not releasing until she felt his tip against delicate skin, and shifted her grip to his hand instead. Squeezing it from that impatient sense of anticipation. -08:36 Jul 12
Severance: He pulled back to look at her and delicatly brush his hadn agaist her cheek, then he pushed his tip into her andleaned down to brush his lips agaist her then push in further an imapatien nip finding her lip before he sunk in slowly the rest of the hay the breath he had held coming out in a rush. Then he thrust and gripped her head. Angel.. virgin angell… tight, delicate.. soft.. he wanted more.. so much more. -08:40 Jul 12
Hanael: If there was supposed to be pain, it was lost somewhere in a flood of sensation. Her hands found their way to his shoulders, fingers squeezing every time he thrust and her body moved. She had wanted to touch him all over and feel the fire of his skin… but this…! This was all consuming and leaving her squeaking out all too loud exclamations every time it hit just the right spot. Watching was so not the same as doing…! -08:46 Jul 12
Severance: He kept thrusting at a steady pace his ahnds gliding over her, pulling the top of her dress down and gliding over her skin as his lips moved agaisrt hers in soft endearments. He thrust more his hands caresssing and holding he ne pushed and moved and he ate her sounds with his lips nibbling ehrs. It was bliss, adn pasion all rolled into one. -08:51 Jul 12
Hanael: The longer it was the more it seemed to build, and the more she felt like it would sweep her away! Hana whimpered in to his kiss, drawing her legs around him in a tight embrace. She had to, as she was coiled so tight, without something to hold on to she thought she might die! And with sudden, rushing force, Hana thought she did! Hands gripping his shoulders when she gave a sharp cry. Her back bending as if it wanted to curl like her toes. She was shuddering and clenching, it was blasphemy to call it heaven, but that’s what it was! -09:00 Jul 12
Severance: He came with her and the kis turned from tesperate to tender as he gently stroked her cheek. "So thats making love.." he said nuzzling his lips against her as he pulled his dick from her and gently kissed her again. "I hope you loved it as much as I did." -09:03 Jul 12
Hanael: Hana was still squirming from delight, but it didn’t stop her from locking her arms around his neck and kissing him so hard that it left her gasping for breath when she finally released him. "I want to do that again." -09:06 Jul 12
Severance: He kissed her back all the while she kissed him. "I think we’ve given these peopl enough of a show." he said. "We should find somewhere else to do it. How about your couch?" he gave her a mischevious smile as he pulled away and pushed himslf back into his pants and picked up thier coffees. "Or the car of a taxi.. or a subway car… or in the air…" -09:09 Jul 12
Hanael: Everything sounded good to her, yet not soon enough. There was that similar stalking look to her expression she had when he agreed to let her match him… …however she did managed to find some retraint the moment she glanced around and spied people. Poor humans, that might not have been a responsible thing to do! Hana brushed her hands over her dress quickly, trying to straighten it out… "We have several hours until evening, we can try them all!" -09:12 Jul 12

Heartbreak and Romance 002: Can’t Take a Hint

[Hanael is on the job! But is not so sure how she feels about nightclubs. Those are not romantic at all.] -02:29 Jul 09
[Severance Gets to take an angel to a club, the place where the worst hookups happen (except mayeb the internet) and he knows she won’t take it well.] -02:31 Jul 09
Hanael: Well… it was colorful! She would give it that. Lots of colors and lights. But loud. Hana was covering her ears, leaning up on her toes to grumble in his ear. There was no way she could shout over the music. "How are people supposed to have conversations like this…! It’s noisy!" -02:35 Jul 09
Severance: He pulled her further into the club and sat ehr down at the bar. "Talking is entirely optional. Dancing, flashy cloths and gestures are all you need." he shouted back before pushing a beer at her. "This is where mors of my… clients… come from and I’m sure you see why." -02:37 Jul 09
Hanael: "How are people supposed to connect without talking to each other?!" Hana eyed the beer. It wasn’t that she didn’t drink, she just… avoided it. Alcohol and angels never mixed well. She finally took the bottle and a sip. Making a face in the process! Hana turned in her seat to look at the crowd. With so many people there wasn’t any room for personal space. Not that they could hear each other, otherwise! -02:44 Jul 09
Severance: He leaned in close to her and tapped his beer bottle against hers. "So this is what I do.. I sat and I watch…" he pointed at a couple dancing with eachother. "Shes drunk, hes drunk AND high, they’ll wake up next to eachother feelign liek shit and thinking more happened than it did, then they’ll go thier seperate ways no need for me to get involved.. Though since you’re here to see how I interact with girls.. I usually sit at the bar and talk to them.. liek I am right now." -02:50 Jul 09
Hanael: "I am an angel, not a girl." There was the one thing about the place she really liked, though. There was passion and desire and lots of it! And that was a wonderful basis to fuel someone’s spark. Now she was watching all of the people with much more interest! "I have to see you dancing and talking to other girls. Humans are always meeting new people here everyday, yes?" -02:56 Jul 09
Severance: "Yes they are." he said "And you are a girl, unless you’re sayign angels are not people, in which case demons aren’t either… btu you still want to set me up.. He slid from his chair and turned ot look at her and leaned in close. "So watch for a bot then I’ll take yu out onto the dance floor." he stood up and upended his bottle gulping down the dontents and shaking himselt then putting the bottle on the bar and turning to the dancefloor. Time to do some dancing… With an angel watching… -03:01 Jul 09

There were plenty of people to dance with, more than one giving him a wink and a smile. It was the one that grabbed his ass that more aggressively wanted his attention, though. A blond in a sequined dress that kept riding up her legs everytime she moved her hips. She was wearing too much perfume, probably freshly put on to try and mask the smell of all the drinks she had! -Hanael

Hanael: Now that she was getting used to it, she didn’t mind the music too much. It was still a little loud, but Hana could appreciate the atmosphere it created. In fact, the more she sat there watching, she could see where it was effective… granted, most of the people there seemed to only be influenced by lust. There were a few who had real love lines, and that was peculiar! As she sipped that awful beer, she leaned in her seat to retrain her sight on that demon. He was in places like this everyday, she really did want to see what he did. -03:12 Jul 09
Severance: He Hanael wanted to see how he dancd with girls and here was a more then willing partner. He winked at her and moved in front of her in the crowded dance floor. He saw girls like this often, a sad amound of them ended up being taken advantage of and dumped in unpleasent palces. Still dancing with her was as good as dancing with anyone else.. unless she followed him back to the bar when he left the dancefloor. -03:14 Jul 09

She was handsy, touchy, and all too interested in getting her hands all over him. “You are soooooo cuuute!” she slurred out between loud bouts of giggling, and waving over to her girlfriends who were all gathered across the room at a table like a pack of cackling crows. -Hanael

Severance: Well this was… interesting… maybe he wasn’t drunk enough for this, demon or not. Still Hanael was watching so he leaned in close to her ear and put a end on the small of her back. "You’re not bad looking yourself, though theres a spot on yout top.." it was probably from chucking her guts from too much drink, the fact that she was still out here was a testament to what kind of friends she had. -03:24 Jul 09
Hanael: Hana didn’t get it. The girl was so aggressive over a stranger, and there wasn’t even the slightest bit of connection there. There were so many people like that, trying to so hard to force something that just wasn’t there. He was leaning close to the girl, though, and Hana leaned forward in her chair. Nearly slipping right out of it when she leaned too far. -03:26 Jul 09

“Oh mi gawd, really…?” The girl ran her hands up and down her chest trying to rub it away, but eventually gave up in favor of throwing her arms around his neck in a fit of squealing laughter. “What eeeveeeer! It’s my birthday, wanna get lucky, hottie? Hmm? I like your pants.” -Hanael

Severance: "I’m here with a friend…" he said but before he could get much further he found her lips on ehis and her tongue forced down his throat. He had to push her away and then watch her face turn offended and got a slap on his chook fo his trouble… And his cheek red he stanked back to the bar to get another beer. "Happy now?" -03:48 Jul 09
Hanael: Hana had cringed when he was slapped, and did have a surprised expression when he returned to the bar and her chair. "It’s like swimming with sharks in here!" She took a napkin from the bar, catching his chin to wipe a bright red smear of lipstick off his face. "This is why people are supposed to be more choosy…" -03:53 Jul 09
Severance: "And why I have work." he said smiling at her in thanks. "When you asked me if a persued sexual relationships I bet you didn’t think I didn’t need to persue them to have them." he stuck out his tongue at her. "So you see why I need to be here… some of these people coulf really use you touch." -03:56 Jul 09
Hanael: She grinned back at him. "I figured a demon could have all the sex he wanted, anyway. I didn’t doubt that you could." hana glanced at the place again. Her touch could definitely be used… and it wasn’t as futile as she thought it might be! Sure, there was a lot like the drunk girl, but there were others too. "I admit this place could use love. There could be lots of romantic moments, if I tried it a different way. With less sweetness?" She was already plotting how she would pull the strings, peering down in her bottle wondering when it got empty! -04:03 Jul 09
Severance: He pushed another bottle into her hands. "I know that look on your face." he said. "If you want to do that then use you money to buy this place then turn it into love central." he took a sip of his beer nad leaned agaist the bar. "Did you get the answers you wanted?" -04:06 Jul 09
Hanael: "That would be silly, I don’t have to buy the place…" A new drink that she didn’t waste time in drinking. And she was still plotting. Worse, she was head counting, bobbing a finger in a soft gesture with each person she added to her list. All it would take was a touch here or there to set an effect in to motion. "I now know that you can dance and that you are respectful to drunk women! But there are still a lot of things I need to know." -04:10 Jul 09
Severance: "Respectfull.. Not a ladel I’d give myself." he said "ANd sloe down you’re going to get drunk at this rate.." he said watching her "Bringing you here was a mistake wasn’t it?" -04:16 Jul 09
Hanael: "I think it was a great idea! I have not learned something new in ages!" Hana handed him the bottle, already empty! Then slipped out of her chair. There was work she could do here and she was itching to give it a try. Hana didn’t explain where she was slipping off to, she just had that look of a tiny predator. A wicked expression of mischief-making as she weaved through bodies. Stopping only to lightly brush a finger over a girl’s shoulder. A girl who then forgot her cellphone on the bar. And next… Hana hunted for the match! -04:21 Jul 09
[Kinzee Heya, is it too late to join?] -04:24 Jul 09
Hanael: (afraid so, sorry! D: ) -04:25 Jul 09
Kinzee: No problem! -04:25 Jul 09
Severance: He followed, it would be irisponsable not to. "Hanael.." he dodged throught he crowd and stopped onto the pulls a guy away from one of the dancers and push them apart… no car accidents tonight. "What are you doing? You should get back t… You’re not listenign are you?" -04:26 Jul 09
Hanael: Hana was definitely not listening. At least not to him! Out on the dance floor, the music was even louder. Enough to really feel it. So that is why humans liked this setting so much… it made the blood flow, and passion run, and there was no need for words. Just feeling! She squeezed between two people dancing with others, back to back. Brushed her fingers over their shoulders so they would turn and see each other. That was a spark. Love at first sight. Hana was giggling when she started dancing too. "I am starting to love this place…!" -04:32 Jul 09
Severance: He caught up with her and grabbed her hand pulling her to him. "So you see why i come here when I’m not working too?" he asked leaning in close so she could hear "You’d be surprised hos much fun it can be and how much scress you can let loose in there places." -04:35 Jul 09
Hanael: "The music has fire to it! You get lost in it!" And she meant that in a totally good way. Smiling and swaying with the music, taking his hands to make him dance too. "I make parties, but none are like this!" -04:42 Jul 09
Severance: "Those parties are you job, maybe its you that needs time away from work?" he smiled and put his hands on her sides. "And try for move your hips more… though for someone who doesn’t come to these palces you ahve a tallent for this. I souldn’t be surprised." -04:45 Jul 09
Hanael: "More?" So she did, glancing around to take some examples from others. It was only awkward if she over thought it, and it was quickly becoming easy to just forget about everything else but dancing. She liked dancing! "I love my work, though! To see people smile and flirt and discover things… but this is exciting too. There is passion and tension and desire! It’s so different!" Her eyes were closed as she swayed, pulling her arms over her head to dance. -04:53 Jul 09
Severance: He shook his head, he would have never expected this from his oposite, and stepping closer he danced with her until the song changed over, then he took her hand and pulled her closer "You know, I think you’re drunk, what would a respectful man say in this position?" -04:56 Jul 09
[(Timeout) Kinzee was consumed alive by feral plot bunnies.] -05:02 Jul 09
Hanael: "You smell like burning sandalwood!" She was close enough to get a good smell of him. Which really wasn’t the first time she noticed the scent, but it was the first time it was strong enough to smell it over cigarettes and other things. She laughed! "That is not what a respectful man would say, though! He would say ‘let me take you home’ or something extra sweet!" -05:02 Jul 09
Severance: He shook his head "You really are drunk." he said putting and arm around her to support her and walked with her from the dance floor. "So where is home?" he asked as they neared the door. "If I’m going to be taking you… or you knwo what my place is probably closer… I have a fridge and music there too and we won’t have to worry about going anywhere afterwards… what do you say?" -05:07 Jul 09
Hanael: "I am not drunk… I am awake!" A little zig zaggy on her feet, but she was excited and very pleased with the evening. "Oh wait, him…!" Hana reached out with both hands, grabbing a man’s arm who looked very confused for a moment, before he shook his head and went to the bar. He found that girl’s cellphone. "Eee..! Look, see… that will take weeks, but they will meet when he finds her address… Um…" She glanced at him curiosly. "You have a place to live? I stay at my business. Sometimes I sleep. I have a nice couch in the lounge!" -05:13 Jul 09
Severance: "I like to have a place where no one else goes," he said. "Not many of those places left unles syou rent them so thats what I do. You could poke around and learn about me." he looked at the man walking to the bar. "And we could come here again sometime.. many I’ll be able to keep you from working." -05:15 Jul 09
Hanael: " I will come here a lot…! I’d like to learn more about you." It was tricky not to reach out and touch others, on the way out. And the moment the were stepping on to the sidewalk in to the evening air, she was breaking away to spin and walk down the sidewalk. "It’s a good night for flying. Too bad humans can’t fly, they would loooove it." -05:19 Jul 09
Severance: "They would…" he agreed taking her ahnd again and pulling her into a secluded sidestreet. "We should though, my place is on the top floor of an appartment complex so we could just mand on the room. Its why I chose it.. Try to keep up…" a second lated he had let go of her and was in the air circling above her and grinning. -05:22 Jul 09
Hanael: Hana watched for a moment with a huff, before she realized she too could fly and that it was her idea in the first place! Making a big deal about taking her time, she pulled off her light wrap. The shirt she wore was backless, which made it so much less awkward for her to ploof out fluffy white wings. After stretching and preening, it was only a quick hop to follow after him. ….she missed flying! "Soooo much better! I never get to fly anymore!" -05:25 Jul 09
Severance: He looked at her as he headed upwards above the city. "Thats surprising.. its part of who you are.. he let her catch up and soared next to her and looked down. "And look at that.. the lights, the sounds… this is why humans pay so much for their penthouses. You’ve been missing out…" he pointed to a park a small distance off. "I also spend time there.. but thats another night." -05:30 Jul 09
Hanael: "I love the modern cities with all of their lights and colors… it used to be nothing but darkness and wilderness, which was nice too just for the stars. But this is better!" Flying was just like dancing. A spin, a sway. After several moments her wings were gone all together and she dropped on to his back. Light as a feather and kneeling with a knee. Giggling as she poked at him while he was helpless to do anything about it. Playing! "The park is somewhere I go often. But I have never seen you… maybe because I go to so many parks…?" -05:38 Jul 09
Severance: He suddenly be ridden was a surprise but a few beats of his wongs later he was soaring high without difficulty. "Maybe… All I know is you’ve been aorund here as long as I have and never having net you was starting to wear thin… I’ve alwats had profesional respect for you even if you hated me." he started flying lower as they got closer. "Funny how that works out." -05:43 Jul 09
Hanael: "I don’t hate you, not really." Hana pressed her fingers to his shoulders, and was careful not to get in the way of wings. "I just don’t like being sad! The end of a good romance is always sad. It’s good to end the bad ones, but the good ones…" She must have said ‘good’ at least a dozen times! Maybe she -was- a little tipsy! -05:49 Jul 09
Severance: "I don’t do that." he said "The good ones are not mine to end unless fate has a hand in it. You read fates as well as I do so…" he hooked his hands aroud her thighs pulling her legs aorund his middle.. "Hold on to my shoulder." with wi wings spread he straitedned out and with her in the piggy back position his feet hit the top of the roof. "..So you’re the ony one who can really understand what I do." -05:54 Jul 09
Hanael: Hana had her arms tight around his neck, and was resting her chin on his shoulder. Frowning all over again and giving a slight huff. "A breakup now, for real love later… I get it, yes." Hana was contemplating, tapping her fingers against her arms and making to move to hop down. "If we are working towards the same things, why haven’t we ever worked together? Do you suppose anyone has ever tried working together?" -05:58 Jul 09
Severance: He didn’t let her down but ket his hands holdign her thighs around him as he walked to the staircase. "No I don’t think anyone has.. Which is part of the reason I wanted to find you. I’ve been making people sad all this time and you’ve been cleaning up after me. If yould be easier to see both side of our work and it makes sense to work togeteher. -06:01 Jul 09
Hanael: She smiled. "So you didn’t come to make mischief at all, you came to make love instead!" That was surprising… and nice! Better than what she expected from a demon, and put an entirely new spin on his job… and hers! "We can find the lost and repair broken hearts, and I would be able to start from the moment a tie was severed to set something really special in motion." -06:06 Jul 09
[Severance enters.] -06:15 Jul 09
Severance: "I know you’re an angel but you have to know ‘make love’ means something entirely different." he said pushign the door open with his shoulder and starting down the stairs. "And you’re either more drunk than I thought or much more open to the idea than I thought you would be." He stopped in front of a door and let go of one of her legs to fish in his pocket for his keys "Either way welcom to my small, spartan, abode.. but at least I have a bed big enough to spread out on and more comfortable than a couch." -06:23 Jul 09
Hanael: Hana laughed, a soft giggle at his ear. "I don’t mean that kind of making love… the other making love!" Once the door was open, she slipped off his back and immediately starting snooping. Poking at his things, digging through his stuff. Hana found one of his shirts and pulled it over her head, plucking at it with a frown. Then just as quickly was darting away to poke at the next thing that caught her eye. "Do you ever bring people here? Friends here since you do not make sex or love with girls?" -06:30 Jul 09
[(Timeout) Severance doesn’t post enough.] -06:36 Jul 09
Severance: He pulled a CD from uner a pair of jeans and slid it into a stereo and soon the room was filled with soft jaz. "I don’t really have friends, except a couple guys at work and no, I don’t bring them here. Like I said I like a place where no one else goes. I’ll have to revise that to where no humans go though." he stepped up to the fidge and pulled out two beers and pushed one into her hands before opening it. "I like things where they are when I left them. Having other around… they tend to move things." -06:36 Jul 09
Hanael: She was definitely moving things. At least she was before having another beer in her hands, that kept her occupied with drinking for the moment. The music wasn’t as strong or loud as the kind at the club, but it was enough for her to sway on her feet and around the room. "Sometimes I talk to people I hire for my business, but when they ask too many questions I don’t know what to say. I couldn’t tell them about being an angel!" -06:43 Jul 09
[Severance enters.] -06:55 Jul 09
Severance: "Of course you couldn’t." he said sitting on the couch and looking at her. "THough you should tell me, if I took a girf from a dating service, ro a club, banced with ehr and bought her drinks, then brough her to my appartment and gave her more drinks while playing soft jaz… what do i do then?" -06:57 Jul 09
Hanael: "That is a good question!" she pointed at him with enthusiam. She loved talking about work! Hana set down her newly emptied bottle, holding out her hand to tap and count off her fingers. "It depends on lots of things, so there are many things to do all depending on the connectivity! One, if there is nothing, then it is goodbye. Two, if there is a little something, there is talking all night. Three, if there’s more of something there might be snugglng or more dancing. Four, with a loooot of something there could be tons of sex! And Five, there could be forever love!" Five. Hana showed him all five fingers, before retracting her hand to tap her chin. "Although, I guess if things went badly it would have a whole different checklist… But I like the snuggling and sexy parts the most. Because those are nice." -07:03 Jul 09
Severance: "I thought you’d liek the forever love part.. though more dancing sounds nice… You’ve janced to jaz before havn’t you?" he stood holding out his hand for her to join him. "We’ll see about the other parts when we get there." -07:06 Jul 09
[(Timeout) Severance was sacrificed to the roleplay gods by a tribe of wild newbies.] -07:12 Jul 09
Hanael: "Jazz is smooth and soft and wonderful for sweet moments." Hana grinned, taking his hand and pulling him off to an empty space in the room. "The forever love is the best because it’s a little of everything, but I like the little discoveries?" Hana pulled his arm around her waist. A nice classic dance for nice classic music. -07:12 Jul 09
Severance: He held her waist and moved witht he music as an easy pace as he took the lead. "Well you’re the expert." he said as they turned and he looked at her. "But I don’t knwo If I could watch it and make it happen, have it all around me without beign able to do it myself." -07:17 Jul 09
Hanael: There was a brief wistful look on her face and a shrug of her shoulders. "I do it all the time…? I always watch and I love to watch. And I think to myself that I would love to have it too, but then I think that it wouldn’t be fair. I could pull the strings I want to pull and make someone love me. And that’s not real love…" She gave a sudden wide smile, before the topic had her giving in to a wave of sadness. "But it’s okay! I get to see people happy everyday. To experience their relationships and all different kinds." -07:24 Jul 09
Severance: He looked at her "And you’ve never met anyone whos string you cannot pull?" he asked "I guess that does suck. "But if you need snuggles freely given… I guess I could if you wanted, and thats not the beer talking. You’ve neer had then, I’ve never had them… we could eb snuggle buddies, or something." -07:28 Jul 09
Hanael: "Snuggle buddies sounds ridiculous…" Yet it still made her crack a grin. He made the offer, so she took it. Sliding her arms around his waist to hug him suddenly and resting her head against his chest. Hugs weren’t snuggling, but he deserved one! "Not a one that I couldn’t pull the strings to! Do you know how many people that is in three thousand years? But don’t worry, I will not have so much trouble finding one for you." -07:34 Jul 09
Severance: "And thats your mission?" he asked. "To find one for me… I still don’t think you can or what I would do if you did." he was hugging her back though. "I didn’t go there for that you you know it.. so why bother?" -07:36 Jul 09
Hanael: "Because I said I would? And to show you I could! And everyone should love someone and be loved." He already said she could, so she wasn’t going to accept an argument about it now. "Besides, I will have plenty of time to look while we are working together!" Hana hugged him tighter before tilting her head back to grin at him. "Are you sure you aren’t afraid?" -07:41 Jul 09
Severance: "I am afraid." he said "I said I was.. And don’t you need someone to love and be loved? You go on and on about how everyone seeds someone but say its impossible for you. That does not seem fair." -07:43 Jul 09
Hanael: "What am I going to do about it? Try random people and hope it will work, but knowing it won’t? Then when you see me I’ll always be crying." She was already ressigned to the fact ages ago. There was no sense in discussing it. "It’s just the way it is. You don’t have to worry about it, you’ve offered me snuggles and I believe that is a fair trade until I find you a love!" -07:50 Jul 09
Severance: "Hey, I’m meant to be the faltalistic one." he said before pulling her over to the couch and sitting with her. "And I can pull strings too. First sign of trouble I might make them leave me. I’ve gone aeons without love, why do I need it now? -07:53 Jul 09
Hanael: "Because I said you do! And I am always right." Hana wouldn’t accept an argument about it. Once they were sitting, she was finding herself at a loss of how to initiating snuggling. …she really hadn’t done it herself before. Hana leaned until her shoulder and arm touched his. "When I give you love, you won’t want to pull any strings! You will be so in love, that no trouble will be a match for it." -07:59 Jul 09
Severance: "I thought you couldn’t read me.. couldb;t pull my strings, so how can you be so sure?" he asked "By that recoming I’m your perfect match." why did he have to say that when he was pulling her legs over his lap and curling his arm around her. "You can’t be sure of anything about me.. I’m a demon." -08:02 Jul 09
Hanael: "You underestimate my ability of observation!" She looked a little offended by it, but was just as equally challenged to prove it. Hana rest one of her arms around his neck so she could keep a good balance then poked his nose with a finger. "I know that you are nice to drunk women even when they molest and slap you. That you behave like you dislike your job, but you have a secret hope that those people you sever will mend their hearts. That you like your privacy but enjoy being around people. And that you like dancing and flying. …and that is just from tonight! Imagine what I will know with more time?" -08:09 Jul 09
Severance: He looked at her. "I knoe you don’t fly, but miss it. You love your job but you’ve never explored the raunchy side of the rainbow, you have supreme comfidence in your abilities and that you’re as cute as a button when you’re drunk. And thats on my first night." he looked away "You’re also bad at picking up hints." -08:13 Jul 09
Hanael: Hana frowned. "I am not bad at hints, I am very good with them. My whole job is hints!" She griped his shirt to shake him gently. "…what do you mean! Did I forget something important?" Now she was just curious, and she would shake it out of him if she had to. -08:19 Jul 09
Severance: He grinnes at her. "Good with giving hints, bad at noticing them cast upon you. Its understandable, when you get the other end of the stik you don’t know what to do… I guess I’ll stay quiet." -08:21 Jul 09
Hanael: It only made her scowl, which also resulted in her shaking him again. This time with both hands! "That’s not fair, you can’t say I am bad at something and not tell me what it was! You’re going to tell me." Hana was quite possibly the most unthreatening thing ever, but that didn’t stop her from giving her best intimidating glare. -08:25 Jul 09
Severance: He rolled his eyes. "Look. I’m drunk. And I’ve been hinting most of the night you should pair me with you. So not you can ignore it." he laid his head back and stared at the ceiling. "Its stupid, and so am I." -08:30 Jul 09
Hanael: "…Oh." That gave her pause. So much so, Hana was stunned in to silence. She could not pull his strings, and she had not even thought that he would…! "Well, you… and I am just! …I wouldn’t know what to do!" What a mortifying thing to realize you were an angel of romance, with no idea of what you were doing! Yet now she was leaning backwards, eyeing him in a completely different way. "You are my mirror…" -08:36 Jul 09
Severance: He looked at her and then looked away. "Well that makes two of us not knowing what to do, forget I said anything. You just forget everything about everything and match me whith whoever you feel is right. I’m not even going to argue anymore." -08:40 Jul 09
Hanael: This was different! Strange! A feeling that was so familiar, but was odd to be having herself and not standing from the sidelines watching it in someone else. Hana went with instinct. Taking his chin she turned his face back towards her, leaned and planted a kiss on his mouth. He said go with what she felt was right, and that felt like the right thing to her!* -08:45 Jul 09
Severance: He was caught by surprise but they were already snuggling, if this was what snuggling was and after his surprise he kissed her back and smiled as a warm, happy feeling spread within him… "That was differnt…" he said softly "But why?" -08:50 Jul 09
Hanael: "Um…" she was breathless and drawing a blank. Which was good thing surely, because kisses that made people senseless were supposed to be the best ones! And that was just a small one. Hana finally found her voice, brushing her fingers against his cheek a little marveled at his smile. "That’s what felt right. Did I do it right?" Hana was trying to think back if she had ever actually kissed someone before. Surely she had done it once or twice in three thousand years? -08:55 Jul 09
Severance: "Felt right so you must have." he said and leaned forwards to kiss her back and place his hand on her cheek as he pulled back. "But you’re sure this match is right? THis si your side of the field after all." -08:58 Jul 09
Hanael: Another kiss and she was senseless again. …how did any couple manage to have a conversation when kissing someone consumed all your thoughts? "I’m… not sure…! …we will find out?" That was the only option, after all. Other than running for the clouds, but Hana was nuzzling his cheek and putting her arms around his neck to hug him again. The last thing she wanted to do was run away. -09:06 Jul 09
Severance: He held the back of her neck and cradled her against him. "Thats all we can do." he kissed her cheek lightly. "So does it feel eny different to watching?" -09:12 Jul 09
Hanael: "So much different…! I get to touch." Which was now her very favorite thing. Hugging him tight and touching! Though it might not top the kissing part… and there was so much more! There were a million different ways to start and she couldn’t pick! Hana finally tilted back to blink at him with a frown. "Do we still get to work together?" -09:16 Jul 09
Severance: "I don’t see why not.." he said "its not like we’re likely to let out personal likes get in the way of work, we’ve been doing this for so long to proove that." he brushed hia hand against her cheek and smiled. "It does feel good though." -09:22 Jul 09
Hanael: "I don’t know what to do with you first. If it should be in order, or if I should skip things, or mix them up in random ways…" Hana lift a hand and hesitated before running it through his hair. She liked the feel of that too! -09:27 Jul 09
Severance: "Don’t worry about orders and just do what you want to?" he said. "Thats what humans do right? -09:28 Jul 09
Severance: "Don’t worry about orders and just do what you want to?" he said. "Thats what humans do right?" this was amusing him. "Tell you what.." he brushed the tip of his nose against hers.. "We’re both drunk and now punch drunk on kissing and dnuggling. Why don’t he move over to the bedroom and snuggle there, bepending how free your morning is we’ll see about what he do tonight. -09:31 Jul 09
Hanael: "Bed snuggling does sound like something I want to do." Hana tilted her head and her body to brush another soft kiss against his lips. How in the three realms did she go for so long without trying this at least once…? Without ever meeting him? -09:35 Jul 09
Severance: He hooked his arm under her lage and lifted her as he stood and walked into the bedroom, it was sparse but cozy and had a big fluffy blanket that had obviously been used a lot. Placing hr down on the bed he flopped her and immediatly kissed her and had his arms around her again. "So does this could as lots of things?" -09:37 Jul 09
Hanael: "It might even be number five, if I am very very lucky." He liked fluffy blankets. Which had her grinning and throwing her arms back around his neck. Thankfully kissing did not seem to be a skill that needed to be learned, when you were good at observation! She was returning his kiss without any hesitation or second thought. It was so much more than she expected it to be! -09:42 Jul 09
Severance: Pullign her against him he pulled the blanket over them after kicking off his shoes and puled her half on top of him to smell her hair. "You know a hundred years ago if someone told me I’d be in bed with an angel I would have told them to go to hell…" -09:46 Jul 09
Hanael: Hana curled up with him nuzzling in to his neck with a wide smile. It wasn’t how she thought she would end her day. She wouldn’t have ever thought a day would end like this. "I am glad you were curious and came to see me. And that I was curious and wanted to know you. Maybe we have had our strings pulled after all…" -09:49 Jul 09
Severance: "Fell we do have the same boss." he said bafore kissing her forehead. "Maybe this was always meant to happen it just took us this long to actually meet eachother. I do know one thing though.. I’m sleeping tonight." -09:52 Jul 09

Heartbreak and Romance 001: Heartbreak and Romance Make a Deal

[Hanael runs an international dating service. It is, after all, the best way for a modern angel of romance to bring people together.] -07:21 Jul 08
[Severance has come to watch those destined for heartache put the hearts on the line] -07:24 Jul 08
Hanael: Hana’s dating service was a very successful, and dare say, very lucretive business. After all, she was good. Supernaturally good. At the bare minimum, most of her pair couples had long lasting, successful relationships. And at the best…? Lifetime love! Today she was hosting a meet and greet event, even welcomed walk in traffic so long as people had a name tag. She’d match the perfect couple! -07:27 Jul 08
Severance: He entered his ticket clasped between his thumb and index finger. He wasn’t looking at the singles but at the couples as he met the woman who was greeting the guests… and he smiled. "You must be Hanael.." he said cheerily. "They call you the most successful dating service operator anywhere around.. I’m sure I’ll be a challenge for you." -07:31 Jul 08
Hanael: First thing she did was smile brilliantly, holding out her hand to shake his and make her usual introductions… and then it faded. Slowly. The widen eyes of surprise, followed by a narrowing squint and a forming frown. "…You are not an invited guest." Oh she recognized him. Though he might be one she had never met, feeling his aura so different from the rest was easy enough. -07:34 Jul 08
Severance: "I booked online." he said "Or I think I did, your sign said you allow guests anyway.. " He smiled at her as his hand arounf hers read her energies… and what energies. She wasn’t normal… "Though you’re right, we havn’t met. I would have rememebred." -07:44 Jul 08
Hanael: "I don’t think this is the right sort of place for you, anyway. Not with your sort of work." Hana retracted her hand quickly, glancing around for one of her staff. Of course, she didn’t want to kill the wonderful atmosphere she had going, but she would definitely have him thrown out. -07:50 Jul 08
Severance: He grinned. "So you do know who I am. And I insist that this is the perfect palce for me to work. I can watch, I can read…" he let go of her hand and turned to stand next to her looking out over the crowd. "Tell me how you do what you do, how you match pairs and spin fates together.. I don’t think its any different to what I do." -07:57 Jul 08
Hanael: "I am not gonna explain how I do things, so you can lurk around making a mess." She crossed her arms, tapping her fingers against her elbows. "I imagine you enjoy spreading discord through my perfectly happy couples." -08:01 Jul 08
Severance: "If they’re perfectly happy I’d have nothing to work with." he said. "I am a tool of fate, same as you. Without me unhappy couple would never split and couldn’t find thier true soulmates. For a new begining there has to be an end." he said softly. "For greater happiness later." -08:03 Jul 08
Hanael: She pursed her lips in annoyance. So what if he made a point? Unhappy couples weren’t good. "…you could at least find a better place to go ruin romance. This is my business." -08:08 Jul 08
Severance: He looked at her. "I’m not here to split couples before they’re formed." he said. "I’m here to keep an eye out for mismatches and see who might need my attention in the future. I was also curious…" he looked at her "Three millenia and I’ve never once met my oposite number." -08:12 Jul 08
Hanael: "My matches are most often very good matches." she said in defense. Hana was tapping her elbows again, no longer watching her people but turning to stare at him with a scowl. "I like being surrounded by happy and pleasant things. Sweet things, romantic things. I’ve never wondered what a demon might be up to." ….which was a lie. Hana was often curious. She just never thought to go seeking out her mirror! That was asking for trouble. -08:17 Jul 08
Severance: "Its what you do." he said "I’d expect you to be the best at it. I don’t think I’ve once seen your mark on an couple I’ve had to split up. BUt its a slow evening and what can I say. I break rules once in a while. I have to say I am impressed. If only there were another few of you I’d be out of a job." -08:21 Jul 08
Hanael: The compliment caught her off guard, and it seemed to visibly temper her scowl down to only a slight frown. "I take my job very seriously. …were you looking for a challenge then? Slinking in to my business to see if breaking one of my couples was possible?" She was rather curious to know what he was up to, even if she felt a little protective of her people. Hana didn’t like the idea of him poking at her couples! -08:24 Jul 08
Severance: He looked at her and rubbed his chin. "You really don’t like me do you? Bit unfair since we’ve never met… I don’t break couple up for fun. Its a job that has to be done. The wheel has to keep turning." he pointed to a man in the crowd. "Richard Bint… six months ago he was dating a girl called Sandra.. look how happy he is. He was one bad review away from suicide when I chanced upon him… Wheel has to turn, and we’re both turning it in the same direction, not oposites." -08:30 Jul 08
Hanael: "Doesn’t mean I like it. The breakups part. Where people are sad and hopeless and can’t see past tomorrow." Hana examined him out of the corner of her eye. Of course she hated him. Maybe. …hated what he did, anyway. "Do you know how hard it is to repair someone’s broken heart? Some are incredibly resistant!" -08:34 Jul 08
Severance: "I do…" he said lookign her in the face. "If theres anyone who knows more about breakup than you, its me… its forming relationships I’ve never understood. Its not like demons do that kind of thing. Humans really ahve it good don’t they?" -08:36 Jul 08
Hanael: That caused her a moment of confusion. Enough that every frowning expression was gone from her face and she was blinking at him with interest. "Why don’t do that sort of thing? It’s not like it’s against the rules. There’s just… other complications. And complications don’t mean a thing in the face of love." -08:42 Jul 08
Severance: "There are those who don’t want to, there are those who exist for only on purpose, there are those who try and I end up having to intrvene before someone gets killed and there is that one who believes that any relationship, lasting millenlia would eventually end. Wuld I be able to end my own ties? Could you?" -08:46 Jul 08
Hanael: There was an interesting question. It stunned her in to a momentary silence as she considered it. "…I like to think if I was unhappy I would have no problem ending it! Who is going to tell me when to start or stop, anyway? This is my field of expertise." She wouldn’t go around telling the Angels of Death who they could and couldn’t kill, after all. They can handle that business themselves. -08:53 Jul 08
Severance: "And if you were unhappy but your partner wasn’t? Vice versa?" he kept his gaze on her and folded his arms. "These are things I have to see ever day. WHo do I nudge, who don’t I nudge -08:56 Jul 08
Severance: "And if you were unhappy but your partner wasn’t? Vice versa?" he kept his gaze on her and folded his arms. "These are things I have to see ever day. WHo do I nudge, who don’t I nudge?" he shook his head. "Face it, those like up can never experience what we begin or end…" he looked out over the crowd. "So I should go." -08:57 Jul 08
Hanael: "Well, I don’t believe it!" she announced. Resting her hands on her hips, and giving him a defiant stare. "Romance is for everyone. Even fatalistic demons, and I can prove it. I can make a match for you." -09:00 Jul 08
Severance: This actually made him chuckle. "I’m the demon of heartache and you want to find me a match? Impossible, not human would be suitable nad no demon would be willign and no angel foolhardy enough. You’re better off trying to find a match for yourself. I do thank you for making me laugh, I havn’t done that in the while,’ -09:02 Jul 08
Hanael: "It’s not that funny! You did say I was the best, didn’t you?" So she was a little offended… but it was a challenge. A really good challenge. And if it meant proving to him that all was possible in the romance, she could smugly hold it as a trophy. "I can find a match, and all it will take is some of your time." -09:04 Jul 08
Severance: He shook his head looking at her before he actually though about it. "Theres a reason I’ve never had one before… But if you want to wast your time… its what you do after all. Just think about it for a secong though. You’re finding a match for the being responsable for ending relationships…" -09:07 Jul 08
Hanael: "Everyone should have love. Even heartbreak demons." She grinned wide at him, already making a little mental note of her first impressions. What she could draw from, what might work… Even circling around him as she eyed him up and down. "Are you afraid of a little romance?" -09:10 Jul 08
Severance: "How do you know I even can feel something like love?" he asked "Mayeb I gave it up for some favor or never had it in the first place. I am a demon… and as you said herache is a terrible thing I have a lot of reason to be afriad* -09:11 Jul 08
Hanael: "Hmm, how do I know…" he posed a good question. Thus, she looked for the answer on him. Taking another prowling turn around him, though it was mostly just for the intimidating dramatics of it. Hana poked a finger to the small of his back. "You can feel love, it’s right there." She circled back around to cast him an enigmatic look. "And you don’t have to be afraid. You said yourself that heartbreak is part of the cycle. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be, right?" -09:15 Jul 08
Severance: He turned around to face her. "And with it I’ve seen people to terrible things and none of them have had the power I have. You hate what I do now wait until I get vindictive about it." he looked at her. "But fine, find a match, if you can. Should be fun to watch you try and I’ll get to meet a lot of couples." -09:18 Jul 08
Hanael: "Why so wicked and vindictive? Have you loved someone before?" Another curious question, but it was important to know. In fact, she was going to have to ask a lot of questions. Matching a demon wasn’t as simple as a human. Humans she could see their entire line of fate… demons were tricky! "You’ll leave my couples alone, in any case! You’ll be busy talking about you so I know what to look for." -09:21 Jul 08
Severance: He narrowed hsi eyes and looked at her. "We should sit down…" he said "If you want three thousand years worth od personal details it might take a while.." he grinned "And no… never met anyone who would understand what I do… or who didn’t make me see why it wouldn’t work as soon as I met them… fate is a cruel mistress, as I’m sure you know." -09:24 Jul 08
Hanael: "You should meet Fate’s daughter and grandaughter… much more pleasant." Sitting down… Hana took a look at her party, tapping her mouth for a moment. Things were going well enough, she didn’t have to make any immediate meddles. Hana snatched his arm to pull him over to table booth nestled quietly in a corner. "I will start with your name!" -09:28 Jul 08
Severance: Sitting and pickign up a handful of the salted nuts that were on the table to pop a coupke in his mouth. "Severence…" he said "More of a title than a name but in lue of one I have to use the other.." he looked at her. "Is my name foing to open up a window into my sould and lay all my secrets bare for your perusal?" -09:32 Jul 08
Hanael: "A name can mean a lot, yes!" she cast him a wicked grin. Settled in her seat. When she was sure there were no eyes in there direction, she was pulling a clipboard from thin air. Writing his name at the very top. "Have you ever tried romance or sexual relations before? At all?" -09:36 Jul 08
Severance: He looked at her for a full second :I already said I hadn’t you know what I do, why would anyone try doing what I do. You I could understand but me… I end things, I don’t begin them." -09:40 Jul 08
Hanael: "All right, all right… I have to ask you know." She leaned forward, to take a closer look at his face. "And we are not talking about me. I am not the one we are going to match." Hana reached out and flicked his nose. "Now do you like boys or girls or both? …Or are you one those strange demons that like something else altogether…" That, she made a face about. It was also a question she had to ask. Some people were really strange. And romance was romance… -09:44 Jul 08
Severance: He wrinckled his nose at her and looked away. "I think we’re done here…" he shook his head and stood. "I’m not meant for relationships, with humans, demons, or anything Hope is not somehtign I have the luxury of affording." -09:48 Jul 08
Hanael: Hana was very quick to grab his arm and tug him back down in to the seat. "It’s too late! You already agreed. There’s no sense in getting scared about it now!" -09:51 Jul 08
Severance: He looked at her befusing to be pulled down. "Do you honestly have other bemons on you list, or angels that would concider me? I’m being realistic.. all you do are humans so… you have no chance of finding me anything." -09:53 Jul 08
Hanael: "I don’t have them on my list, but I haven’t failed a person yet! All I have to do is look for the right person, if you will cooporate." Hana wasn’t letting go. If she were going to succeed, she needed the time with him to know what would work! He couldn’t escape on her now. "I’ll know exactly what they’ll love about you, if you give me the chance to find out." -09:57 Jul 08
Severance: He relented and sat "What to love about me? Hmmm…. ?" his tone was sarcastinc… "Well ask away.. lets assume I like woman…" -09:59 Jul 08
Hanael: A triumphant grin was his reward. Hana settled back to the clipboard. "Women. When you are out breaking up poor couples, you notice things you like about those relationships.. right…?" Maybe that was more of a personal question, than one from her clipboard. Hana was curious… -10:05 Jul 08
Severance: He looked at her. "All the ones I see are sick beyond repair.. thats why I see them." he shook his head. "I’ve enver seen the point of them thats why I’ve never persued them. They’d distract me from my job." -10:08 Jul 08
Hanael: "Lots of people have romance and jobs. Just because yours is breakups, I don’t see why it would be a problem…" He was just being contrary. They could argue it all night if she gave in to it. "I will tell you what -I- like, and you can think of your own?" Hana leaned to point at a couple talking to each other by the bar. "They have connected. They’ve only met tonight, but talking to each other is natural. Like they’ve been doing it all their lives." She reached to poke his cheek and turn his head in another direction. "And those two by the window. This is the fourth time they’ve met, and every time he touches her arm she has this bright smile. And when she smiles, he immediately smiles too. Little things like that are nice." -10:13 Jul 08
Severance: He batted her hand away and looked at her. "And yet you’ve never had any of it?" he closed hsi eyes. "I can tell you what I hate most, that easy… lying, mistrust, false assumption and endless argument… thats all I see of relationdhips, what they turn into when they go sour." -10:17 Jul 08
Hanael: Hana leaned back, a little embarassed but trying to hide it by picking up her clipboard and scribbling on it. "I don’t have the time for romance myself. There’s a lot of people in the world and new ones born every day." she finally glanced over the edge of her clipboard. "You need to see more relationships that -haven’t- turned badly! Good ones, where the people are in love and have been in love and will always be that way!" -10:21 Jul 08
Severance: He checkled again. "Lots of people have romance and jobs." he mimiced "Just because yours is hookups…." he had a wicked grin on his face… you have as much work as I do.. maybe less since I take care of those who hook themselves up too." -10:24 Jul 08
Hanael: She blinked. …and then she clonked him on the head with her clipboard. It wasn’t very hard at all, just a light thunk to get her point across. "My job is really hard. And even with your teasing, I’ve had people be much, much more difficult! I have had ones that resisted for years." -10:31 Jul 08
Severance: "I’ve had couple resist for years, I don’t always succeed you know.. sometimes someone dies. that is hard. I have to know what buttons to push and what to smoothe out and that to not let come out. You want hard jobs? You try making peopl unhappy the right way." he leaned back and chewed on a few more of the nuts. "You expect me to be all open to things and then use my excuses.. I guess neither of us will ever find love and that is probably a good thing." -10:36 Jul 08
Hanael: "You’ve given up and you haven’t even tried." She scooted closer and squinted hard at him. Hana was trying to be intimidating. "And -I- am not even looking. If I was looking, I wouldn’t be all scared about it." -10:40 Jul 08
Severance: He flicked a nut at her. "I’m not looking either." he said "But here I am being interogated by the angel of love or whatever you call yourself. You knoe most demons would get you drunk and try to get one in you. I’m just enjoying a chat." he looked around We should make some sort of deal… if you’re heel bent of hooking a demon up, you should also keep your options open." -10:45 Jul 08
Hanael: Hana dodged the nut, dropping her clipboard in the process. She stuck a tongue out at him for his crassness. "My options are open well enough, just fine. I even know what I like! I’ve just not found it. So it’s an easy deal to accept!" -10:47 Jul 08
Severance: "And one I’ll hold you to." he said "Though as limited as my experience is what you think you like and what you find don’t always align." he flicked another nut at her. "More questions?" -10:50 Jul 08
Hanael: She flicked it back at him and huffed! "Lots of questions. Like what you do when you are not working? Do you like parties like this for romancing, or do you like moonlit walks? Do you even like the moon and stars?" -10:53 Jul 08
Severance: "Times when I’m… not…. working." he said "I… have no idea what you mean." he said after catching the nut in his mouth. "Its a full time job and I don’t have the… facilities… you do. Its a good thing I can take shortcuts through the underworls or I’d spend a LOT fo time travelign and never get anythign done." -10:58 Jul 08
Hanael: "This will be harder than I thought…" Hana had an incredulous expression. Really, even she didn’t work all the time. …well, just most of the time. "Do you not even have time to take a nice bath at night? Or a walk? Or having dinner somewhere pretty? Is breaking up couples really so intensive?" -11:01 Jul 08
Severance: "You make money off of twhat you do." he said "What am I meant to do, be a divorce lawyer? "I work part time to have money. I don’t need to eat but the occasional treat is nice. Mostly I hang out in bars, resturants, parks keeping an eye out. Moments where I can relax like this are very rare." -11:07 Jul 08
Hanael: "You work?" That was a surprise! She really did expect him to always be lurking around being dastardly. "Where do you work, and what do you eat? ….and is this really relaxing having me grill you with questions?" she gave him a sidelong glance. "And did you come here to work, or did you come here to be wicked and mischevious at me?" -11:11 Jul 08
Severance: "I…" he returned her glance "I work part time as a bistro.. int he kitchen mostly on the fish station but sometimes on the others too, and no.. don’t think I catered here.." he looked back out over the room. "Any tiem I’m mor weilding a knife or severing a life or two apart is relaxing." -11:14 Jul 08
Hanael: "I see. You should dance, then! A night away from severing things. I can watch how you move and talk to ladies, and it will be helpful for me and something different for you." It was a genius idea. How he talked to women was important in her decision. -11:19 Jul 08
Severance: He looked at her and rubbed his temple. "Last era a learned the dances for was then strapping steel on yourself was in style." he said "Well the formal moves for. I tend to end up in clubs more often than dances, you want tos ee me dance we’re going there. Different for you too I imagine." -11:25 Jul 08
Hanael: "Clubs aren’t exactly where people go for romance…" And she didn’t look so keen on the idea. A moment of chewing on her lip before she rolled her eyes and conceded. "… all right, since I need to see what you do on a normal basis." Hana was already nudging him out of the seat. -11:30 Jul 08
Severance: He stood and offered her his arm. "We’re ariving togther.. yes thats that way its going to be.. I know just the place and I’m a known face there…" he smiled at her KNOWING she’ll see all the rushed hookps for nothign but sex and broken relationships… "This is goign to be fun" -11:40 Jul 08
