Gabriel was nervous, just a little bit, as they pulled up to his father's house. There was a sign on the front yard:

Samson Gray
Taxidermist


His real father stuffed dead things? There was an irony to that, or something, but Gabriel found no comfort in that. He didn't know what he was going to find inside of there, what answers, if any, lied inside.

What if it was more proof that there was just something wrong with him that couldn't be fixed? That he eventually would hurt Elle in a way that he couldn't fix?

He felt almost sick at the idea.

He lingered in the car for the moment before opening the door and stepping outside with a deep, shaky breath. He had to face the truth at some point. Better sooner than later, right?

Right.

Elle swallowed hard, staying in the car for one more moment as Gabriel got out. It was a small, average house, and she would have smirked at the sign if the tensions weren't so high. No matter how little Gabriel was nervous, she felt it, and she felt it tenfold for him.

She got out of the car though, looking over to him with a sober expression. "Are you ready?" she asked softly.

He took her hand into his own for comfort, squeezing it lightly. "As much as I'll ever be."

It seemed dizzying to think his whole life, his parents hadn't been his real parents. His real father, this man, had sold him as a child. How different would his life have been if he hadn't?

She held his hand tightly in response and nodded again, afraid of what was behind that door. It seemed naive to think it was good, knowing what they knew, but Elle... Elle was had to think it was going to be okay, or else she didn't know what she'd do.

He stood there, holding her hand for a moment before stepping up the door. He didn't even bother knocking before opening the door.

It was unlocked. Probably for customers.

She followed him inside, wrinkling her nose at the smell of... blood and sanitation and dust. It wasn't welcoming; Elle was already unsettled, and she drew closer to Gabriel.

Gabriel wrapped his arm protectively around Elle's waist. "Hello?" he called out, his eyes falling on a snowglobe he had one one of the shelves. He picked it up, feeling a little pang as he thought of his mother.

"The order isn't finished yet," came a coughing voice from the back.

Date: 2009-08-31 06:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] electrocutesy.livejournal.com
Elle felt grateful for his comfort, and she peered over with a sad furrowed brow at the snowglobe, placing a hand over the one curled around the collectible. She started at the voice, and looked towards the source. "We're not here for an order," she said anxiously.

Date: 2009-08-31 06:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] justgabriel.livejournal.com
"No, we don't have any animals we want to be stuffed," Gabriel replied bitterly, placing the snowglobe down. He felt a small pain in his chest at what he finds next. A picture of a small boy on a tricycle.

Is it him?

From: [identity profile] electrocutesy.livejournal.com
Elle sucked in a quiet breath when she noticed what he was looking at, and she gazed up at him, snaking an arm around him and squeezing his waist gently.

"Well, then, what do you want?" the gruff voice asked, and Elle swung her head around because it was closer now and in the room. Her eyes widened as an old, barely presentable man limped into the room, wheezing heavily.

His eyes were dark, like Gabriel's, but she didn't like them, didn't like the emptiness tinged with impatience she saw as they locked with hers before traveling up to Gabriel.

Gabriel leaned into her touch. He was glad to have Elle with him. He looked up at the older, disgusting looking man, a wave of disappointment washing over him.

This wreck of a man was his father?

"I'm your son."

"I don't have a so-" The man started, but Gabriel cut him off.

"Don't lie." He tapped his forehead. "I can tell. I'm your son, Gabriel."

Elle watched as Samson's eyes narrowed infinitesimally, looking hard at Gabriel. Then he hacked into his hand and went to turn, reaching for the arm of a chair and falling into it heavily, flicking his gaze back to them indifferently. "That's an interesting ability," he rasped out. "Who's the broad?"

"My name is Elle," she spoke up, offended by his reaction, his tone, and the careless way he referred to her.

Date: 2009-08-31 07:19 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] justgabriel.livejournal.com
"She's my girlfriend," He replied firmly keeping it his arm tightly around her. His father knew about abilities. He couldn't tell if that was a good or bad thing.

"She's a pretty little thing. Enjoy her while she lasts," his father says in a very flippant voice.

Date: 2009-08-31 07:26 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] electrocutesy.livejournal.com
Asshole. She instantly seethed, and would have taken a threatening step closer if it wasn't for Gabriel's hold on her. "Hey," she barked, glowering at him, "watch it," she hissed, her fingers starting to tingle with electricity begging to burst out.

Samson merely smiled, all off-white teeth and condescension. "Fiery, too. So, why are you here?"

Date: 2009-08-31 07:35 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] justgabriel.livejournal.com
"I don't know," Gabriel replied in a sarcastic tone. "You find out that your father sold you as a child, you get curious to just what kind of man would do that."

Samson laughed. "Are you looking for an apology, is that it?"

"Not particularly."

Date: 2009-08-31 07:39 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] electrocutesy.livejournal.com
"So what do you want from me, son?" he asked, patronizing and wryly cruel. Elle was ready to do some permanent damage. Some very fatal permanent damage.

Date: 2009-08-31 07:45 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] justgabriel.livejournal.com
"Answers. Why did you do it? Why did my mother let you?" He demanded, letting go of Elle to take a step closer to his father now.

"She didn't really have much a choice, boy."

His stomach churned, but Gabriel asked his next question anyways. "Why not?"

"I killed her, the same day and everything."

Date: 2009-08-31 07:52 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] electrocutesy.livejournal.com
Elle froze for a split second, looking at Samson in horror before stepping forward, a ball of electricity erupting into one palm. "Monster," she choked out breathlessly.

Samson's eyes zeroed in on her ability, and he got that same blank, hollow look before he smiled again. "Yes," he said, amused, and then coughed, wheezing slightly. "I've been called that."

Date: 2009-08-31 08:01 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] justgabriel.livejournal.com
Gabriel's eyes narrowed. He recognized that look. He had had it in his own eyes many times before. "Why? Why did you kill her?"

Long, forgotten memories resurfaced in his head. His heart thudded in his chest heavily.

"And infront of me? And people say I'm sick."

Date: 2009-08-31 08:07 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] electrocutesy.livejournal.com
Elle snapped her head to Gabriel at the comment, confused by the odd exchange. She was missing something important.

"It just happened that way," Samson said with a throaty, painful cough. "It wasn't anything personal."

"What?" Elle asked.

Date: 2009-08-31 08:09 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] justgabriel.livejournal.com
"I was just a child," Gabriel shouted. "You really thought it was a good idea to kill in front of me?"

Samson just chuckled. "You'll see, eventually. If you're anything like me, you'll realize that other people won't even be enough for you. Ten to one, you'll do in your pretty blonde just like I did your mother."

Date: 2009-08-31 08:18 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] electrocutesy.livejournal.com
Elle paled, her electricity waning with disgust as she realized what was transpiring, but it crackled, flared to life at his last comment. "He's nothing like you," she growled. Even though she had called Gabriel a monster before, she knew he wasn't. She knew he loved her, and even though he hurt her time and time again, he'd never kill her. No matter what Angela said, no matter what his dad said, no matter what. "And my name," she said fiercely, punctuating each word, "is Elle."

She running out of reasons not to fry him up.

Date: 2009-08-31 08:25 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] justgabriel.livejournal.com
"I'm different," Gabriel growled, raising his hand. This man had ruined everything. If he had never seen his mother killed as a child, that suppressed trauma, maybe he could have been normal.

And there was the nagging thought, what if he was the same?

He wanted to kill his father to prove he wouldn't kill Elle.

Samson coughed, looking up with a wry smirk. "Go ahead son, take me out of my misery. Better you than the cancer."

Date: 2009-08-31 08:32 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] electrocutesy.livejournal.com
Elle paused, looking over to Gabriel in question. Even if she was practically dying to kill his father, she reigned herself in, coiling up the desire tight.

If he wanted the honors, they were his to take.

The parallels weren't escaping her; they crossed and made a sick horrible tangle in her mind, but she ignored them. None of that mattered.

Date: 2009-08-31 09:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] justgabriel.livejournal.com
Gabriel wrestled with the choice. To kill his father, or to let him live and suffer a drawn out, painful, disease ridden death.

Choices.

Date: 2009-08-31 04:20 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] electrocutesy.livejournal.com
"I think you're lying," Samson said with a very small smile, heedless of the danger he was in. "Is that how it works...?" he trailed off, his eyes vacant. "Can you tell if you tell a lie, too?"

His eyes dropped to Gabriel's hand and he choked out another hoarse, wheezing laugh.

"You have more than that, boy? You have the hunger, don't you?" he said, his voice instantly darkening. "The apple never really does fall far from the tree..."

Elle's eyes rounded; she snapped her gaze to Gabriel with a shaky breath.
