//And I was just like, ‘where’s angel’s?’.. then was like ohh fuck and went to check my drafts and YES THERE IT WAS, ALL READY TO BE POSTED >< I totally wrote it last night and forgot! damn it, me. xxx
//xD D’awwweee~ Gabriele would never forget to respond to Angel. ;)
I’ll try to respond on my break— wireless permitting. x.e;;
Sif smiled at his answer and how she took him by surprise. But she was paid back for said surprise when he did some surprising of his own by making himself glow. Grabbing her bag to ensure it didn’t fall from her shoulder, she smiled and walked up to him now, and buried her fingers in the hair on the back of his neck, eyeing his subtle vibrance.
"This is incredible, how did you do that?" She giggled and kissed his lips gently, drawing the lower one into her mouth for a moment before letting go. "And worry not about my comfort, Gabriele. Although I would like to go home and shower, if going out is what you prefer." Moving her hands now, she backed up and started to head for the exit, then turned around and waited for him to follow.
"If you need a shower, you can take one at my place or something… just in case you don’t want to go all the way back to your apartment." She smiled at him in the darkness, her eyes glowing that deviant color, betraying any innocence she was projecting to cover her true motivations… She wanted to cook for him, she wanted to be alone with him.. but was it strange? She did just meet him afterall, but gods… it had been so long since a male had made her feel as he did.
Gabriele smirked to himself with how easily he surprised her. “What? You mean not everyone glows in the dark?” He teased and smiled a little. The idea of showering wasn’t such a bad one, especially with this wonderful summer night heat. Even though their sparring session wasn’t exactly a long and intense one, just standing outside was enough to make him hot.
He nodded in slight agreement before returning the kiss, though he didn’t really know which he preferred. He was trying to keep things as proper as possible, having just met her.. Though he was quite certain their kiss had broke some boundaries already..
Checking his watch, he thought for a moment. “Why don’t we both head home and wash up a little.. and then I will pick you up in an hour?” The Archangel suggested with a slight shrug. “I will make all arrangements needed and all you have to do is continue looking beautiful. Does that sound alright or would you prefer something else?”
Though her offer to go back to her place was indeed quite tempting, Gabriele wanted to keep things with them.. calm first. He liked her, there was no denying it. He doubted he would be able to think of anything else for a long time.. just her..
Sif diverted her attention from her lover to the area around them, gazing at the delicately strung lights, the white fabric draped in places… It truly was beautiful.
As eyes roamed over all the decor, her mind was elsewhere. It’s been such a short time since Gabriele and I met… How could I have ever thought that first sparring match would turn into something so beautiful? I cannot fathom my life without him now, which is absolutely tragic, if you think of it… Tragic and beautiful. I don’t want to live life without him.. he is the perfect balance to my heart, guarding it yet dismantling all defenses…
She snapped out of her gaze at his response, his simple words… “I used to hate when people called me that… Goddess… I guess I was only setting myself up for the one man who could use that pet name and my heart soar instead of boil in anger.” She giggled a bit and picked up her glass, sipping a bit of the cool liquid.
Gabriele loved the way she turned her attention.. specifically now. He loved the way she looked over the room and everything he put together. The way her eyes glittered with the candle light, the way it made her simply glow. If they hadn’t only just started seeing each other, he probably would have asked her to marry him right then. Though, with that factor in mind and despite he was completely unprepared for such a thing, he pushed that thought a way. Patience Gabriele.. Don’t rush things.. You remember what happens..
He blinked when she spoke and instantly started to feel terrible. If he knew she hated it so much he would have found something more suitable to call her. He just couldn’t help but marvel at her. He loved who she was. “I..I..” Gabriele murmured, shifting in his seat. “Forgive me.. I could find a name more suitable to your liking, if you prefer..?”
Sif only smiled as she kept hold of his hand, leading them to a clearing. Once she was there, she pulled him close to her. “You said you trusted me right? I really need that to be so…” Shifting the weight of their bags around, she handed him one so that she had a free shoulder. “I need you to hang on to me and promise me you will not let go. Promise?” She waited for him to respond before nodding her head and looking up. ”Heimdall… Brother-dear we are ready.”
As the clouds began to churn overhead, she looked at Gabriele and smiled a reassuring smile, her hand squeezing his. “Do not be afraid love, the Birfrost will carry us to Asgard… my home.” As the rainbow bridge began to descend, she made sure to hold tight onto him and keep him close so that he knew it was safe.
As they began their Ascent, Sif held him even closer to her. She yelled over the noise, “Remember, do not let go, okay?” And then there was no more time for talking. They were soaring through the cosmos now, stars and nebulae passing by them in an instant. It only took a couple of minutes before they reached Asgard, landing in the golden viewing room in front of her brother. “We’ve made it! Gabriele, welcome to Asgard… This, this is my dearest brother.. my only family I have left, Heimdall. Heimdall, this is my Gabriele.” She hugged her brother as she introduced the two of them.
Gabriele felt a slight discomfort when they reached a clearing in the woods. His eyes scanned the area, his magic already at work and making sure there was nothing and no one with in a near distance of them. When Sif pulled him, he snapped from his thoughts and allowed himself to be pulled close to her. As long as she knew what she was doing, he didn’t worry.
Reaching, he took the bag that she handed him and nodded. “You can lead me into a slaughter and tell me it were not but a playful gathering and I would trust you, my love..” He answered softly, his eyes trying to read her face. Not that he actually believed she would lead him to his death, but he really did not understand the secrecy..
He nodded his promise and went to answer until the sight of the clouds churning above them distracted his attention. The Archangel immediately tensed but took no action. Sif didn’t seem to worry.. so if she was calm then he could be.. right?
His jaw clenched when she spoke. So this was the bifrost.. Taking a deep breath, he tried to calm his rapidly beating heart. You’ve travelled worse..
The Archangel did as instructed and did not let her go. Not much much out of worry for himself, but he really did not wish to find out what would happen to her if he loosed his grip. When they landed Gabriele looked about the golden room until one simple word froze him in his place. Brother. She never mentioned having a brother. Gabriele looked over to the larger male in golden armor, who looked like he could do some severe damage with one punch. Brother. Right. "I…I..ehm.." He paused and took a deep breath, clearing his throat, before he tried to speak again. "Hello.." The Archangel finally answered with a slight wave.
She smiled at him warmly. She didn’t want to upset Gabriele again; she loved his smile too much. She had always thought he didn’t smile enough.
"That depends," she joked, following him down the stairs carefully. It was quite dark. "Do you have coffee that we could perhaps… spice up a little?"
She heard the jingle of keys, and started to wonder what his new apartment looked like. It had seemed quite a large building when they had landed.
Biting his lip he thought for a moment while a devious smirk tugged at his lips. His mind mentally ran through his inventory, wondering if he even had his liquor unpacked yet. “I’m sure I can come up with something.” The Archangel answered with a slight nod.
As they reached his floor, he pulled his key from his pocket. Gabriele took a deep breath as he unlocked the door. It had been a while since he’d been back here and can only imagine the condition of the place. He had only just started moving in before he began frequenting Loki’s palace more. No.. He wouldn’t think of it anymore.
Once he crossed through this door, that life would be well behind him..
Gabriele opened the door to his apartment and held the door open for Rebecca, stepping aside to let her in first. The door immediately leading them into his living room.
Jeane cocked her head at the male now, listening to him speak. He didn’t quite seem like the rest of the people in this world, but she wasn’t one to judge. Brushing a piece of hair from her face, she smiled. “Oh, I do enjoy sugar on occasion… But no, I haven’t ever tried this… Is it like tea? Because I rather enjoy tea..”
She giggled a bit and leaned against the counter, waiting for her drink. When his came up on the counter, she looked at it intently measuring it up. It looked delicious. If she hadn’t of just purchased one, she probably would have used her charm magic on him to make him give it to her.
He tried his best to disregard her. It wasn’t uncommon that he would attract someone’s attention, but there was something about this woman that just didn’t fit right. Especially when she wondered if a coffee coolatta was like tea..
Gabriele’s eyebrow raised. He wasn’t sure if she was serious or if she was playing just to talk to him. “You have had coffee before.. yes?” The Archangel asked in return, turning his attention back to the counter as the employee placed down his drink. He mentally cursed himself at the sight of the beverage.. This certainly wasn’t going to be enough to satisfy his caffeine addiction..
Reluctantly he reached for the cup, giving the employee behind the counter a small smile. With one last glance toward the woman beside him, nodded slightly. “Just don’t drink it too quick.. Brain freeze is a nasty thing.” He murmured before adjusting his work bag and starting for the door.
