I imagined you might.

Did you speak with him?

No. Thought it best not to for the time being.

Kuran keeping Cassian certainty doesn't help the situation.

Cassian has returned...he made a deal with the deities so that the vampire would no longer think Cassian 'indebted' to him.

What exactly did this deal entail?

He sold one of his arms for two weeks.

Knowing the deities, they only ended the debit and left Kuran's memory intact. The both of you are probably still within his sights.

If Father Dearest learns any of this, Kuran may very well gain an ally.

I believe you're right about that much...that the debt was forgiven but not erased from his mind.

...perhaps. It depends on whether Father still thinks Cassian could be useful. [Though, knowing how Cassian is going to react to all this, he doubts that that's happening.]

If you need assistance, don't hesitate to call me.

Allies plus the map I gave the both of you - which hopefully Cassian never shared with Kuran - got an edge on your father.

Thank you. I do appreciate that.

...you assume I am looking for an edge over him. [Abuse and dependency issues gogogogogogo!]

You're welcome.

[NOT responding to the second part. Will be talking to Cassian later about it.]

Date: 2011-10-09 10:46 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
[Yeah, he saw.]

Stay away from him. Don't talk to him, Doctor.

Date: 2011-10-09 11:23 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
I've already spoken with him, Cassian.

Date: 2011-10-10 03:06 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
Well don't do it again!

[Yeah, he's angry, mostly because he knows Jezebel will ignore him.]

I saw your plans with him...are you actually going?

Date: 2011-10-10 03:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
[Aaaaand ignoring that. Sorry Cassian.]

Of course. Why else would I make plans I had no intention of keeping?

Date: 2011-10-10 03:11 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
[Brb, mentally freaking out.]

Then I'm going with you. I don't trust this and you better not as well.

Date: 2011-10-10 03:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
I do not know if that is wise, Cassian. He will be displeased.

Date: 2011-10-10 03:19 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
You think I care whether he's displeased or not?

...I'm just trying to keep you safe.

Date: 2011-10-10 03:21 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
Displeasing him does not keep me safer, Cassian. [Because of all the beatings.]

From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
I'm not going to stay away because of him. I've done that once and it didn't end well, I'm not about to do it again.

[Don't make him admit feelings just to get you to listen.]

Date: 2011-10-10 03:30 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
I am just meeting him at the Turnabout. I do not think there is anything you need to worry about protecting me from. [Minus the dependency and psychological issues]

[Sob at least that would get him to pay attention]

Date: 2011-10-10 03:33 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
Yeah? And what if he wants you to go somewhere else with him? He's not going to meet you in public places forever.


[Keep it up and he just might.]

Date: 2011-10-10 03:36 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
Then I would go with him as he asked.

[Sob oh Cassian. Sorry your not!husband is pretty much brainwashed]

Date: 2011-10-10 03:42 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
[Congrats, you win. Have anger.]

Don't you get it?! If you go with him then that's as good as guaranteeing your death, he'll just use you till you're no longer useful!

I won't lose you again....I can't.

From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
Cassian...

[He pauses, trying to think, trying to explain, but he's always been terrible at showing people that he belongs to Delilah, that that is what he is and always will be.]

You must know by now that I am meant to do what he asks. It's what I am made for.

Date: 2011-10-10 03:55 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
No, you're not. You aren't made to do anything that man wants.

...You can't, seriously, expect I'm just going to step aside and let you go back to him. I'm not going to stand by and watch him ruin your happiness. Things aren't going to go the way they did before.

[Especially not since he's in this body that can actually do something.]

Date: 2011-10-10 03:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
Yes, I am. I always have been.

You don't have a say in the matter, Cassian. [His voice grows cold at that. He doesn't like to be told what to do, not even by you, Cassian.]

Date: 2011-10-10 04:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
[And as your tone grows cold, his gets heated and clearly hurt.]

Oh, I don't, do I? Then, what, you're just going to shut me out again? Are you going to make me watch and be able to do nothing to help you while he kills you with his influence?!

You might as well be sending me back to Rido, cause there's no difference that I can see.

Date: 2011-10-10 04:23 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
[Why did you have to bring up Rido, Cassian.]

You are going to say that I am shutting you out, letting myself be killed when you have already done exactly that yourself? Refusing, all the while, to let me find you so that all I could do was hope for a change in fortunes?

Date: 2011-10-10 04:32 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
[Because he wants a f***ing reaction.]

I was trying to protect you. That's all I've been trying to do and it's what I'm trying to do now. There was a redeemable side to Rido, there's no such thing for him.

Date: 2011-10-10 04:37 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
He killed you. [And Lord, if this were in person, you might hear the crack in his voice at that, the point that Jezebel can't ever forget.] Whatever my father is or does, I am alive still while you are not. You don't even have an arm -- I didn't ask you for any of this! I don't want you to protect me this way!

Date: 2011-10-10 04:43 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
[The fire suddenly freezes and it's his turn to have ice in his voice.]

You don't understand. For me, back home, you are dead. His influence killed you and there was nothing I could do but watch. I can't let that happen again, I-

[Voice failing, he pauses a moment and when he speaks again, there's sadness in his words.]

There is no other way to protect you...I don't know how, but I can't stop trying.

Date: 2011-10-10 04:55 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
[His voice is less icy now, and it is almost a plea.]

And what if I do not want you to protect me, knowing what you'll do? What if I am willing to bear whatever consequences I bring about?

Date: 2011-10-10 10:58 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
I can't stand by and watch you do that. I, physically, can't. You'd have to send me away or kill me first.

[His tone is sad, but completely serious.]

I won't let you face all of this alone.

Date: 2011-10-10 11:12 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
[After Cassian's already disappeared twice since his arrival, Jezebel doesn't want to send him away (and killing him is out of the question), but he also knows Cassian will try to interfere otherwise. And things will go very, very badly if Alexis notices.]

Cassian. This is not something you can decide for me. You cannot force me to do what you wish, or to stand by while you hurt yourself trying to protect me.

Oh, hai, action~

Date: 2011-10-12 04:57 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
[Cassian bursts through the door, having been on the move the entire time. As he walks into the room, shutting the door behind him, he turns off the device and fixes his stare on the doctor.]

And you can't expect me to do nothing. I can't do nothing.

Action!

Date: 2011-10-12 12:58 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
[Jezebel looks at him for a moment, partly surprised by his sudden arrival -- though, knowing Cassian, he really should have expected it. His expression is partly frustrated, partly melancholy, but also tired.]

Cassian. You are not my master. You cannot control what I do or do not do.

Action!

Date: 2011-10-15 07:33 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
[When he speaks, it's with a sigh, though he doesn't let any of his determination leave. He doesn't want to argue, but he can't stay silent either.]

I know I'm not. No one is. That's what I'm trying to tell you; you were fine before he showed up. He's not your master either, he shouldn't control you with a snap of his fingers.

[He steps closer, ignoring the concept of personal space.]

I'm not going anywhere. Just like before, I'll stay your shadow, but I can't stay silent.

Action!

Date: 2011-10-16 04:10 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
[Jezebel just...looks at him, not stepping away, not seeming awkward in the least at how close Cassian is. After a moment's reflection, he says in a voice that could almost be described as affectionate:]

I don't know if I've ever said, exactly, how much I appreciate your loyalty. [He smiles, but there's some bitterness in it as he adds:] But I have my loyalties to keep as well.

Action!

Date: 2011-10-17 04:48 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
[He'd had enough of the arguing. There wasn't going to be an answer to this right now. He'd have to compromise the best he could until he could find another way.

Carefully, but without hesitation, he eliminated the space between them, pulling the doctor into as tight of an embrace as one could manage with only one arm.]


Then I'm going with you. If you won't leave Delilah then neither will I.....where you go, I go.

Action!

Date: 2011-10-18 01:25 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
[Jezebel did not expect the sudden embrace, was unused to affectionate physical contact. There was a second or two where he was silent simply from surprise, but he could not deny that the gesture was warm, comforting. He leaned into the embrace, shutting his eyes for a moment.]

I am glad for that. [His voice was quiet, sincere.] I want you by my side. [As his assistant or as something else, he would not say.]

Action!

Date: 2011-10-20 06:35 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathstrumpcard.livejournal.com
[Even if it might seem a bit strange, he didn't let go, he honestly didn't want to.]

Then that's where I'll stay, as long as you want me there.

Action!

Date: 2011-10-20 01:04 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deathofdelilah.livejournal.com
Good. [Jezebel did not move away, letting himself linger. Cassian was warm. Warm and reassuring, and Jezebel did not wish to separate himself quite yet, not when it felt like the events of the day had left everything reeling with turmoil.]

...thank you.
