wherein Ben from Fierce Dawn grills Elijah and Sadie on how they really met
Ben: First of all, I have to say to Sadie—Girl, those jeans are rockin the boo-tay. Mmkay? Now, don’t even think about blushing. You’ve heard far too many rusty trombone stories to get all prim just because your man is sitting all drool worthy here.
Sadie: *rubbing forehead* No instrument today, Ben. Please?
Elijah: Drool worthy?
Ben: Psshht. Don’t even try humble, stud.
Elijah: Fine. What’s with the trombone?
Sadie: NO.*grabbing Elijah’s arm* Don’t ask. You don’t want to know.
Ben: I don’t know. Maybe he does want to know. You play any instruments, Elijah?
Ben: Okay, okay. Fine. We’ll leave Sanchez and Carl out of things today, too, then. Happy now?
Elijah: *shifting* I’m at a loss to why we’re here in the first place. There’s a few other life or death matters waiting on us, if you don’t mind.
Ben: Oooh. Feisty! Well, hot cheeks, sit still. I’ll let you be on your way after you two tell me how you really met.
Sadie: We told you. At the library.
Ben: Nope. Not buying it.
Elijah: *chuckling* It’s true. I saw her there, asked her out, she said no.
Ben: *clapping loudly* There. See? Impossible. Sadie wouldn’t have the balls—sorry, girl, you just didn’t. Ya might now, but then. No way. So spill it.
Sadie: *sighs* Does it really matter if he knows?
Elijah: *eyebrow quirking* You tell me. Will he believe it? Remember he did have a hand in your little hospital vacation.
Ben: Unfair! I was cornered and don’t forget I helped you find her.
Sadie: True and true. Okay, Ben. On one condition.
Ben: Name it.
Sadie: No more graphic details.
Ben: Oh, sure, deny it all the way home in front of him but you can’t tell me it didn’t help you get a taste of the real world.
Sadie: *grinning* Taste? Bad choice of words. I do adore you, though, so here’s the truth. I’m a human changeling and Elijah helped me transform. I’m also key to exposing a conspiracy against mankind. Oh and vampires are real. Only blood isn’t food. It’s a drug and vampires are nothing more than immortals strung out on it.
Ben: *mouth hanging agape*
Elijah: It’s true. I hunt bloodsuckers. Or I did. Until humans started evolving. Now all hell is breaking loose.
Ben: *slow smile spreading* You two are a riot! I admit it. I was going for a Salt angle, pegging Sadie for an undercover op and you the enemy spy. But this? I f#@king love it.
Sadie: He doesn’t believe us.
Elijah: *shrugs* It’s been fun. But we’re leaving now. *stands, embraces Sadie and in a flash, vanishes with her in his arms*
Ben: What the f—?! *silence*
