    As the two are discussing, a message comes through on the group Pulse conversation. "I may not be able to come," the message from Aisling reads, and it's followed by some incomprehensible emoji.

    Anna typed out a response: tomorrow evening, 3am at Tommy's Joynt.

    The reply to Anna's message was almost immediate; it read, "Sounds good. Meet you upstairs."

    That taken care of, Anna steps out to find Gabe, while Karl goes upstairs to follow up with his grandson.

    ************************************************** *******

    Gabe was down on the main floor, not far off from the room where Karl and Anna had been, standing in the shadows. He had clearly been waiting for the two, but of course Gabe's eyes fell on his Sire, appearing almost disappointed when Anna sought him out and Karl went the other way. Refusing to step out from the darkness he says with quiet frustration, "What's up?"

    ************************************************** *******

    Karl continued on to the stairwell and marched up to Gabrielle's old rooms. Down the hall he could hear Aisling milling about in her room, maybe packing. When Karl opened the door to, he found his grandson in the dark, lying on the moldering cot. Despite the darkness, Karl could see that Fred's eyes were closed. He watched the rise and fall of the man's breathing... so mortal. The man did not stir as the Mekhet moved noiselessly into the room, though Karl could not decide whether the man was sleeping.

    Unsure what he wished the answer to be, Karl states in a low but audible voice, "May we speak?"

    If there is no answer, he will turn and head back downstairs. Waking the boy would not seem prudent given how on edge he must be.

    “Body disposal,” Anna replied, “seems there’s a corpse on our property and it’s time to get rid of it before someone accidentally finds it and starts screaming, or calls the police or something.”

    She paused.

    “What are you doing back there, has Karl got you practicing obfuscate?” she asked.

    Before Karl can turn around, his grandson releases a loud and (to Karl's ears) exaggerated sigh. Without any evidence of grogginess Fred opens his eyes to look up at the vampire standing in the doorway. "Come in," the man says as he pushes himself to a seated position on the cot. His voice is haggard, flat, reserved. He adds, "What do you want to talk about?"

    ************************************************** *

    “Body disposal,” Anna replied, “seems there’s a corpse on our property and it’s time to get rid of it before someone accidentally finds it and starts screaming, or calls the police or something.”
    Gabe scoffs at this. "Of course," he says, trying to swallow down his spite, before adding under his breath, "Thought I'd be done with the slave work after getting bitten." He grimaces, trying to give Anna a grin and show that he's alright with it all. "Very well then. I'm game. Is there a plan?" he adds.

    She paused.

    “What are you doing back there, has Karl got you practicing obfuscate?” she asked.
    "I don't know," Gabe replies as if surprised by the question, "I guess I just... like it more in the darkness. I figured that was, I don't know, normal?" He was a Mekhet after all.

    "Everything and anything Enkel, but most of that can wait. I wanted to thank you for not turning me away. I know it was not easy accepting not only our connection, but this thing that I am."

    "I'm afraid you will be on your own when you next wake, there was a young man I had originally thought might keep you company and give some perspective, but it seems he will be departing tonight. I can at least leave you my car and my card, so you can do something in the daylight hours before I can join you again."


    Karl looks around the room with some distaste. "One way or another, these accommodations will be temporary. Things have changed rather significantly of late, and we've been a little busy trying to keep up. A new place for all of us to stay is likely in the works, and making sure there's an appropriate place for you in particular should be simple."

    "There is much you will need to learn, more than we can really cover tonight, even if you forgo sleep entirely. But is there anything in particular you wish to know now?"
