Gabriel awoke in his own bed his head pounding.
“Goddess” he groaned sitting up he clutched his skull “me and whiskey don’t get along.” His head snapped around as he swore he heard a quiet laugh behind him. The broad expanse of black wall opposite the bathroom was all that he saw. He frowned and stood going to the wardrobe and pulling out clean clothes dumping them on the bed he pulled off the hoodie he'd slept in. he heard a sharp intake of breath and spun around his claws raised. He moved to the wall running his hand over it then shook his head and grabbing his clothes he walked to the bathroom slamming the door shut after another quick glance at the wall. Half an hour later he went downstairs, his hair still wet from the shower.
“morning.” Lou said warily, Gabriel just grunted a greeting to the small group that were still mostly in their nightclothes.
“So, what's the plan?” Sylver yawned.
“I say we go to earth in small groups.” Maxwell said pushing a hot mug into Gabriel's claws. “Large groups attract attention.” Lou nodded.
“I’ll go with you.” Rossier whispered in Gabriel's ear from behind the chair, he rested his hands on the vampyre shoulders and Gabriel winced slightly.
“Get off me, or I’ll remove your head.” Gabriel snarled not even turning to look at the daemon. Rossier snatched his hand back as electricity snaked up his arms.
“shocking.” He grinned sitting down Gabriel growled at him “fine, I’ll find someone else to go with.” He looked at Sylver still grinning.
“I will go with you Rossier.” Lou said firmly “I need a word with you anyway.”
“Am I in trouble?” the daemon asked.
“No” Lou smiled his hands wrapped around the mug that Maxwell passed him.
“Not yet anyway.” Gabriel growled Rossier smiled at him.
“Who are you going with Gabriel?” Lou said trying to distract the vampyre, who just shrugged.
“I will go with you.” Tairas’ deep voice said “I need some shopping advice.” Gabriel nodded.
“Okay” he nodded “where's Dawn?”
“Probably still in bed.” Sylver yawned again, Lou sat back a small secretive smile on his face.
