-sigh-
Such a great topic from my point of view.

I've wanted to try this out, but no one else will play and the one who did, he stopped replying after his first post.

So, it'll be between two people, so I actually only need one other person.

I'll be an OC of mine and I need someone to be Henry Foss, technical genius of the Sanctuary.
My OC is Arella Tesla, daughter of Nikola Tesla.

It'll be a romance, but with all the oddities and mysteries of the Sanctuary. We'll share other characters as needed.

Here's as far as the other person and I got:
Henry will be doing something off in the Sanctuary when Magnus texts him, saying he's needed in her office because Nikola has something he would like to share with the staff.

Now, Nikola and Henry already don't get along because he's a HAP and Nikola's a vampire, so he's doing this begrudgingly. Anyways, on his way to Magnus' office, someone knocks on the door and he opens it to a woman.

That's when Arella enters.

Now, she has the vampire gene, but it's dormant in her blood. Henry smells something on her, but shrugs it off. Arella hands him a twenty and tells him to take her bags to her room.

Whether Henry does it or not is your call.

Arella is like Nikola, so she immediately gets on Henry's nerves. She bosses him around, thinks highly of herself. Arella is a daddy's girl. She'll go down to Henry's lab and bother him. He'll tell her not to touch stuff, she will and will purposely break it. Other times, she'll try to fix something and end up breaking it.

Naturally, they'll get into many fights.

So, Magnus will send them on an easy mission that they shouldn't screw up. But, they argue, something goes wrong and they end up fighting for their lives. Anyways, it coms down to Arella having to try and save Henry and the vampire gene comes out.

And, that's all I have.

Anyone?

I'm actually a little interested, but I don't know anything about the sanctuary. I love the idea of having Tesla associated with an RP, though, and vampires I love, too.

The sanctuary is a home for abnormals. Helen Magnus takes them and researches them. She protects the world from the dangerous ones along with protecting the abnormals from the world.

That sounds awesome! I would love to play an abnormal, and I bet if I do research on Henry Foss (and if you want to) I could take a shot at playing him, too. It sounds very interesting, though.

Well, Henry Foss is an abnormal. A HAP, a werewolf. But if you're willing to give this a shot, that'd be awesome! I've been waiting for someone to do this with.

That's even better! xD I really like your plot! And I did some research on the Sanctuary. It's extraordinary.. I had an idea a bit similar, so that's a weird coincidence.. but kinda neat at the same time. -laugh- henry Foss is a geek, pretty much, right? That's basically what I gathered, but they didn't really explain his character all the much.

Henrey is a sarcastic computer geek. A computer genius. He's always inventing things for the team or working on something for security. Bad things(like abnormals escaping inside the Sanctuary)are happening to him. He makes jokes no one thinks is funny, too smart for his own good. The Big Guy is his best friend and he likes for people to tell him hes done a good job. He loves wearing rock and roll t-shirts and jeans, very laid back.

She crossed her legs and stared out of the train window,boredom surrounding her.This train ride was endless!She had money for a plane,but she didn't particularly like flying and taking a car to this place had seemed too claustrophobic for her tastes.She'd taken a boat halfway here,but a boat couldn't be taken over land,so train was her last option.Arella's interest peaked when she saw the train pulling onto the platform. Finally!The woman stood up and began making her way towards the door.She couldn't wait to get to the place called Sanctuary.I haven't seen my dad in about ten or so years.His invitation had been out of nowhere.The last she'd heard of him,his powers were gone.She'd wanted to come then,but she'd been caught up in a mess.

After stepping off,she waited about ten minutes for a taxi.By the time one drove up,she was ready to give him a piece of her mind.He put her two bags and trunk into the trunk of the disgustingly yellow car.Arella told him where she wanted to go and he shook his head."Weird things are always happening there lady.Strange noises at all times of the day,uexplainable events that always seemed to be covered up after a while.A pretty woman like yourself shouldn't go there.Arella rolled her eyes."Look,I'll give you sixty dollars to take me there now."His eyes peaked up and he started the car.Arella threw thirty into the passenger seat."I'll give you the rest when we get there."

Thirty minutes later,the taxi driver pulled to a stop and she leaned forward,dangling a fifty over his shoulder."You'll get this,plus fare if you'll take my bags to the door."He snatched the money out of her hand and she snickered.The woman patted him on the shoulder and his beady eyes peered up at her in the mirror."Just remember to be careful with the trunk.I have valuables in there that do not need to broken in any form."He rolled his eyes,but still heaved his over-weight body out of the taxi.She opened her door and got out,looking up at the building."Home for now."

Arella walked up and knocked on the door.She tapped her foot,waiting for something to happen.She thought tons of little booby traps would move,locks would have to be opened,things like that would happen.But,nothing happened.Surely Daddy told them she would be coming,correct?Arella was used to having the door already opened when she came to places her father was,waiting on her.After a few more minutes,Arella knocked again and the door was opened only moments after.There stood a young man,dressed in street clothing and his hair was rather tousled."Can I help you?"Arella smiled and pulled a twenty from the purse on her arm."I'd like for you take these bags up to the room I'll be staying in."She dropped the twenty in his hand and patted him on the shoulder.

She walked in and brushed her hair over her shoulder and took a look around.This place was huge...and empty.There as no one waiting for her.Arella's blue eyes widened and her eyebrows raised.Why isn't he here?I traveled all this way and...Arella took a deep breath and calmed herself.She turned around and frowned."Can you tell me where Nikola Tesla is?I thought he was expecting me,but he seems to have been otherwise preoccupied."

Arella put her hands on her hips and and pursed her lips,turning back towards the room.I haven't seen him in eighteen years!I get his invitation and I come,expecting to see my dad.And he's not even here.

It was almost four o'clock in the afternoon. The noise of the clock above ticked annoyingly to remind him of his time. However, it seemed like his focus was much more gravitated towards the screwdriver in his hand and a black box in the other. Balanced on the tip of his nose was a thin pair of magnifying glasses. From a visitor's point of view, his eyes were like glistening beads, but from his end, everything was at least fifteen times bigger. He could see every single scratch that was on the small device in his palm, and perhaps many of the fingerprints of its previous owners. He twirled the rectangular block of metal around his hand, carefully looking for the small slit that he needed to open for the contraption to begin. In fixed anticipation, he bit the tip of his tongue before holding his teeth lightly clenched, until he found what he was looking for. Gently, he moved the flat blade of the screwdriver towards it, knowing that the slightest imperfection in his movements could cause it to be locked instantaneously. "Careful..very careful..take your time.. you can do this," he mumbled to himself offering the only encouragement he would be able to get. The blade finally touched the device, but at the same moment his phone's careless melody went off, buzzed, and sent him to flinch just enough for the screwdriver to be clenched within the device, making it impossible for anyone to open it.

With his hand still frozen on the tool, his head wasn't as fortunate as it collapsed forward, resting his chin against his the top of his collar bone. Henry was just able to compose himself to push his tedious and wasted hardship aside, as he looked over at his phone. "Please, let this be worth it.." he groaned, but it only made the matter worse when he saw the name that was responsible for all of this. He clenched the phone tightly as he stared at the screen tightly. Why wasn't he surprised that it was him? It's always him.. Already tired by today's events, particularly the hours wasted on his newest project, he didn't even bother to read the rest of the message, only seeing the part where he was needed for a meeting.

Leaving his room behind, he went on his way through the Sanctuary. Although, still mildly frustrated with his loss, he vaguely began to wonder what the meeting would be about. Since it was Tesla's news, only he really knew. He sighed as he passed by a door, but stopped as he heard a noise coming from the other side. His neck arched backward, as if he would see the cause of it. His feet backtracked gradually, wondering if it had been just his imagination, until it was heard again. His nose wrinkled as he breathed in the visitor's scent, before stepping forward to answer the door.

He looked down at the young woman, asked her if she could help her. She obviously was lost. Who would come here? And was that a taxi down there? His eyes then glanced at what apparently was her driver. who the heck was she? His lips began to form a smile, finding the circumstances humorous. "I think-" he began, but it was her who ended his inside joke as she offered him some money and started to walk in. Stunned by her bluntness, his face slowly twisted into a squinting stare as he watched her look around the place as if it were some hotel, leabing him there with the bills in his hand and the other still holding the door knob. However, with on soft push, the door closed, leaving her luggage standing out there as he walked a foot closer to her. "I'm sorry, but do I have a name tag that reads 'Hello, my name is Henry and I'll be your server today'?" he asked. Pointedly, he looked down at both sides of his shirt, pointing to where the said name tag would have appeared if it existed. "No? Yeah, I don't think so.." he went on. "Who are you, anyways? I'm sorry, but this is really not a hotel. If it was, room service all around, but.." he gave a brief smile, making a note to remember that one, before focusing back on her. She was a stranger, but already she was starting to remind him of somebody. Great.

((Okay, hope this is okay!))

Arella turned and looked at him, a look of surprise on her face. How could he speak to her like that? She looked at him for another moment before glancing around and not seeing her luggage. "Okay, I obviously paid you to complete a task and you havent even managed to bring my luggage in. There are quite a number of valuables in there that I will hake Nikola hold you responsible for if they get damaged." How could her father stand to be around such brutish people? When he asked her name, she stared. Had he not introduced her? "Can you please just take me to Nikola Tesla? He will explain everything."

She sighed and crossed her arms over her chest. There had been no one waiting on her. This man had no idea who she was. Arella wiped at her eyes when she felt tears pricking at the corners of her eyes. Had he even remembered that she was coming? "I do know that this is not a hotel. I'm not completely daft." She brushed her hair over her shoulder and sighed. "But, in some hotels, staff is not seen until needed. They seem to magucally appear. And if you were my server, you would work at a restuarant."

The brunette finally huffed and began walking down a hallway. Maybe she would just find him if she was walking is. "Do you know where Helen Magnus is? He's most likely with her since he's quite attracted to her." Arella continued walking down the hallway, not caring if the brutal and sarcastc man was behind her or not. Arella looked around carefully, but didn't see a soul in sight. Didn't her father mention something about tons of abnormals? Arella finally just sat in a chair, angered and saddened. "Who are you?" Arella looked up and saw a giant, hairy person...thing in front of her. She jumped up and looked at him. "I am Arella Helen Tesla, daughter of Nikola Tesla. Do you know where he is?"

He simply grabbed her arm and began pulled her somewhere. Arella didn't know whether to try and get away and go quietly. "Are you taking me to Nikola?" He gave a couples of grunts, but Arella didn't know what to take that as. "There was a nerdy little fellow from before. I think his name is Henry. He is very rude. His pay should be docked or he should be reprimanded at the very least."

[[Sorry that kind of sucks. Got stuck. Sorry.]]

((No, not at all! Hope mine are fine. She's funny. I like her character. xD))

Obviously sensing that he was the only one that found what he was saying amusing, he stared back at the girl who was now basically gaping at him with her own bit of shock. His eyebrows raised slightly as his head twisted to the side. Honestly he couldn't be the one in the wrong here. She was the one that just barged in here like she owned the place. But his forehead furrowed, making his eyebrows arch into a curious and dumbfounded expression. Only after she talk did his face fall back to the original look. A mixture of blandness and hint of aggravation. "I'm sure he will.." he mumbled into another drawn-out sigh before nodding his head in acquiescence. "Okay, just follow me. I was on my way to meet him, anyways, so at least it's not too much of a burden," he shrugged as he stepped past her, making his way down the hall.

He took in another breath, swallowing uneasily at the scent that wafted through his lungs. There was that smell again, the one from the girl. She really was unusual. Maybe Tesla could actually be of some use and explain her sudden appearance. Gradually, he glanced back at her, seeing her wipe her eyes. Quickly he looked forward, the feeling of awkwardness just intensifying. She was just expecting him to do manual labor and now she was crying? His eyes shifted around in their sockets, wondering what he could do if anything. Okay, she was rude, had a funky smell, and demanded everything, but she still had feelings. "Are you okay?" he asked, taking a brief look at her again, still unsure of what to do. Hopefully he could just drop her off with Tesla and he would be able to fix her. This was not his area of expertise.

Although he didn't hear the answer to his question, he did listen to her other remark. He looked at the passing corner of the ceiling as if he was trying to distance himself from her a little more. "I didn't say you were," he pointed out. "It's just that you knock on the door, ask to stay in a room, and make me your bellboy..kind of gives people the wrong impression." His shoulders shrugged casually once more, thinking that his point was made, until she continued. His eyes squinted with his mouth pushing up at one side. "Well.. they serve either way," he told her. "It's the same thing!" I've never wanted to see Tesla more in my life than now..

His eyes closed for just a second, but during the time between their resting state and the reopening phase, the stranger was already going down the wrong hall. If she hadn't spoke, he probably wouldn't have even realized it, and quickly turned to catch up with her short lead. "Okay we'll go this way, then," he breathed, but then looked over at her for her question. She really did know him. "No. Unfortunately not. I would imagine she'll be in the meeting that I was going to in the first place which undoubtedly included Tesla as it so happens he was the one that called it, but.. other than that, no." He reached behind his head, scratching at a small patch before they stopped for her to sit. He was actually relieved to see someone he knew, although he apparently seemed to scare her. But that was nothing compared to what she said.

Lamely, he watched as he took her away by the arm, but followed after a few moments. "Wait, what?" he asked loudly before quickly walking with them. "Your his daughter..?" His voice questioned only vaguely. With everything together, it wasn't surprising. The only thing that struck him as being strange was the fact that Tesla had managed to find someone to have a child with. His head shook lightly before placing his hands in his pockets. This was interesting.

She just ignored the question of if she was alright. People never really meant it. They were just trying to be polite. Arella kept looking at the hall as she walked through, slightly amazed at the elegance and beauty of the building. Not gaudy, but not understated for a building as grand as the Sanctuary. "They may work in the hospitality business, but they are two different types of service people. I do not see you in a tuxedo with shiny shoes, carrying a silver platter with my salad. You are instead wearing some sort of t-shirt, a vest and jeans with not shiny shoes." She glanced over at him before turning her attention forward.

"Meeting? Maybe he was announcing my arrival. I don't think I came early. He did say to always arrive perfectly on time, but make a grand entrance. Which I tried to, but there was no one there." At the finishing of her sentence, Arella was more talking to herself than Henry beside her. The big hairy thing dragged her down a hallway and to an elevator. She reached forward and knocked on the metal door. "Is this completely safe? Are you sure that it won't cave in on us or anything? I mean, I want to make sure that I get to Nikola in one piecce." Arella kind of fidgeted a bit in the hairy man's grasp. She did not like small spaces.

Arella turned around sllightly and looked at Henry. "You say that as if it's a bad thing. Yes, I am Nikola's daughter. He's my dad. I lived with my mother until a few years ago and I haven't seen my dad in eighteen years. We do keep contact though. He invited me here, so I came. Now, close your mouth before flies come in. It's very unattractive." Arella gasped as she recieved a slap to the back of the head. She looked over to the hairy person and stared. "Did you just assualt me? My father will hear about this! I can't believe I'm being treated so rudely when I am the daughter of one of the greatest men."

He just pulled her into the elevvator when it opened and she cringed being forced into the small place. "How long will we be in this contraption?" Arella hated elevators. Too many things could go wrong with them.

[[I love yours! He's so sarcastic! I love playing Arella because I get to be so snobby and arrogant. Well, I must be off. I have to be up early tomorrow. If you post tonight, I will answer A.S.A.P. If not, I will reply as soon as I see you post. Good night!]]

As she looked over at him, probably more so at his clothes after that statement, his mouth twisted downward in an unsettled frown. he himself had to look down at his own appearance, but found nothing wrong with it. "So, if I did have the shiny shoes I would be in a completely different line of business?" he asked. Actually it was partially a literal question, interested in what her answer would be, and the fact that he never realized that the right footwear could define your career. After some time of thought on the matter, though, he had to let it go, finding it mostly pointless and the fact that he had to keep up with her even more so. They're direction, which had been muddled from the very beginning, was now headed towards the elevators with the assistance of his friend. Hearing about the grand entrance that apparently had turned unfavorable for her, he had the brilliance of offering a valuable service. "Well, if it makes you feel any better, you can go back outside and retry it again. I'll give everyone a heads up," he spoke, tilting his head to her.

He leaned back his head as they approached their first destination. His hands left his pockets, reaching over to press the button for their lift. During this, he simply flashed a look at Arella as her fist knocked against it, questioning its safety and stability. "It's fine," he strained calmly, as if he were talking to a young child. "But we did have one mishap, however that was just yesterday. Completely in the past," he jokingly lied as the door pulled into its frame. Easily, like a normal person, he stepped inside, and held the door for the two. Her worries hadn't seemed to be quelled, and it was only until the abnormal pulled her inside was she next to him once more. How joyous for the man.

Pressing another one of the elevator's buttons, Henry watched her as she continued to speak, this time about her history, which somehow wound up with another insult to him. He just quietly breathed out, letting his eyes grow much more tired than they were only minutes ago. It struck him odd that she would call her father by his first name, except for just once, but figured that Tesla most likely would have demanded it, just in case he forgot the wonder of his own name. Quietly, he smirked at his own thoughts, bowing his head slightly to hide it. But when her ranting came back, he was forced to rest his head against the back of the metallic wall for some support. She could drain anybody, but especially him. "He was just showing you the way in. Apparently you forgot to walk when an elevator opens," he explained as his eyes drifted over to her before staring at the ceiling.

The door finally closed on them, letting the metal box go up at an average pace, and already she was questioning how long she would have to stand inside of it. Please, stop talking.. He rubbed his eyes, resting his cool fingers on the top of his face for a moment of fleeting peace. "Only a minute," he spoke behind his hands, "if it doesn't crash, then I'll spend eternity in hell.." His palms slid off his skin, pulling his cheeks down before gradually crossing his arms against his chest.

Thankfully, the bing of the elevator sounded, the door slid back open, and they all could escape with little injury. "Now, this time, just follow me please, and then we can go to the meeting, have you introduced, and we can go back to issues that do not include us..together," he spoke, clashing the knuckles of his fists together to demonstrate their encounter. His lips formed a slight smile, easily pleased with another one of his thoughtful scenarios, before nodding his head once, and turning around to begin his walk.


((Yay! xD Those are really the best characters to play, next to criminally insane ones, of course.. -drools over le nutjobs- -laugh-))

"I know what to do whenan elevator door opens. I tend not to use them though. I prefer stairs." She clenched her fingers in her palm, his story of the mishap yesterday worrying her. Arella snatched her arm from the giant person's. "I do believe I can handle myself." She rolled her eyes and began to flatten out the creases in her dress. Arella heard his comment, but decided to ignore him. She would keep score. Finally, the elevator bimged and she was the first oneout. A sigh of relief rushed from her lungs and she put a smile on her face. "Actally, I dont have to follow anyone."

She shook out her arms and brushed her hands over her dress oncemore. Arella pushed her hair back and sighed. "I know exactly where my father is." Maybe it had to do with her having some vampric genes. Arella had always been able to hear and smell her father better than others. Arella passed Henry and her heels sunk into the carpet with every step as she followed the signs of her father. She came to a magnificent door and the second she stepped up to it, the door as pulled open. She saw a pale man with blonde hair looking at her. Arella gave him a half smile before walking into the room. "And here is my reason for calling this meeting! I take the pleasure of introducing my very beautiful daughter, Arella Helen Tesla."

Arella turned at the voice and stepped over to her father. She wrapped her arms around him and there was a short reunion for them. "I have missed you Nikola." He nodded and gave her a kiss on the cheek. "We have much to talk about. Now, may I introduce you forally to the woman whom you're named after?" She turned and looked at a black haired woman, very beautiful. "Please to meet you Arella. I'm Helen Magnus, head of this Sanctuary. The man who opened the door is Will Zimmerman, my prodige. This is Kate Freelander and I assume you've my tenchnology specialist, Henry Foss and the resident handyman, Big Guy."

Arella nodded and tucked an arm through Nikola's.She thought she heard something to like, "Stay away from her wolfie," come from her father's mouth, but wasn't completely sure of it. "I have met them. They were kind enough to show me where my father was. Um, are there any stairs connecting the floors?" Helen shook her head. "In our line of work, it's much easier on everyone to have elevators. Is there a problem?" Arella shook her head in the negative. "Not at all. Uh, which is my room so I can collect my luggage froom the front door and take it to my room?" Arella leaned over to her father so she could whisper in his ear. "I paid the techno-geek twenty dollars to bring my luggage to my room and he left it at the front door.

Nikola turned and looked at Henry, but didn't say anything. "Don't worry, I'll get it back." He cleared his throat and brought it to a volume everyone could hear. "Do you think Henry could bring it up Helen. I want to show my daughter to her room. She probably wants to refresh before we sit down to reunite."

[[Oh, I know what you mean. I love playing the weirdos.]]

Before he could even lift a foot to lead this woman to her father, she had already rejected him, and started walking right past him. Standing where he was, his face followed her with the blankest glare with a splash of a gaping sense. He just looked back at his hairy friend, raising his hand in the air before letting it fall back to his side. "I just thought it'd be easier," he spoke under his breath, before shaking his head, forced to follow her. If he didn't have to be at this ridiculous meeting, his day would have gone a lot better. He would have had his work completed, and he wouldn't have had this massive headache brewing. Regardless, though, he had to, the work would be completed later, and the headache would go away once she did. She couldn't possibly be staying here for very long, anyways. That's right. This was an unconventional vacation. She'd be here for three days maximum. He breathed out his own sigh of little relief, even though she would still be here longer than was wanted, at least from his point of view.

The door that he had wanted to go since the disruptive text message loomed in sight. As soon as she stepped in front of it, it opened just as though planned. His eyebrows raised before looking away as they hugged, wishing he was still in his laboratory, before walking in the room, as well. Closing the door behind him, he crossed his arms once more before leaning against the wall opposite of the pair. As Dr. Magnus offered everyone's name as a way of introduction, Henry nodded his head once at the sound of his name, but remained quiet, despite his wanting to tell her how he had been treated as if he was her servant.

His ears perked up, though, at another voice in the room, once that seemed so faint and quick that it didn't seem like Tesla's lips moved. Was that an actual warning to stay away from his daughter? "I don't want her, she's like your replica. Take her," he snapped lower than a whisper with a shooting look. He held his stare on him for a second longer before releasing it, settling back into his rested posture just in time to listen to Arella once again. Naturally she would forget to mention how she acted. His mouth slanted with most disinterest and boredom. Faintly, but much more than anybody else apparently, heard about their first interaction together. He reached into his pocket, feeling the texture of the twenty against his fingers. Truthfully, he had forgotten about the money and focused more so on the actual act. How silly of him.

Arduously, he breathed out in response to Tesla's look, not even bothering to give him one back, and instead rolled his eyes away. He did not want to bother with either of them, but especially both of them at the same time. It was like a double dose of the same horrible tasting medicine. But then the shoe dropped, as he offered his services without as much as a please. His mouth dropped gently, showing his disbelief in the whole situation. The actual lack of fairness here was amazing! His eyes narrowed at the scientist, his teeth resting on top of each other in a soft grit. "You can't be serious. I'm not bringing up her luggage," he told them factually, before digging into his pocket. He pulled out the money, and handed it back to Arella. "Here, I'm giving this back to you. Now, we're completely even, right? I don't owe you anything, and you don't owe me anything. I like it that way, can we continue this?"

((There's just a huge range, too. If you ever look up phobias.. it is amazing on how many are listed. There's even on that has the fear of the color purple. That's just wrong! I love purple! xD))

Arella tapped her fingers carefully against her father's skin and he did the same until they were playing a side game of repeat the pattern nobody could see. Arella pushed her haor back with her other hand and sighed. "I'll get it so it won't be a bother on anyone." Helen stood and gave her a smile before looking at Henry. "Would you please help the Big Guy carry her luggage up to her room. I assume you would like the room adjourning your father's?" Arella nodded. "That would be just lovely. Tesla's hand snaked out and snatched the money without anyone seeing. He placed it in is pocket and drummed his other hand against his thigh. "That would be marvelous Helen. Even though my dear Arella isn't vampiric, she dooes have some of the qualities of one. She sleeps only a very little."

"Thank you so much Ms.Magnus. It'll be a pleasure staying here. I'm already falling in love with the exquisite colors and the magnificent decoration. The Big Guy takes wonderful care of the place." Helen smiled and nodded. "Thank you. How long do you plan on staying Arella? Length is not a matter. I was just wondering." She shrugged. "I have no idea. I mean, Nikola and I have so much to catch up on and I just got his letter saying he'd gotten his vampric powers back. Maybe a couple months?" The black haired woman nodded. "That's perfectly fine. Stay as long as you wish. I'm more than sure you'll find something to occupy your time here."

"Alright. Well, I'm going to go get settled in, then Nikola and I will get reaquainted. I will see you...when he brings me to you I guess." Helen nodded, then the two turned to walk out the door. Nikola's eyes slanted and turned black while his fangs protruded just a little. "Do not insult her." In a flash he was back and the walked out of the room, neither acting as if anything happened. "It was nice meeting you Will, Kate, Big Guy and Helen. Always a pleasure Henry." The two gave them a fleeting wave before walking out. Helen sat down at her desk. "Who would've had a child with Nikola? I thought he thought mortals were beneath him." Kate laughed. "He's still male and has needs." Will sat down in a chair in front of her desk. "It's surprising that Tesla claims her her when he said she's not a vampire. But, he must've tested her and found a dormant gene or something."

Nikola and Arella walked down the hall together. "How's your mother dear?" Arella shrugged. "Dead, but I didn't want them to know that. Not something I put out there publicly for others to know." He nodded. "Well, how was your travel here." She rolled her brown eyes in tiredness. "It was long. THat's the only word to describe it. The boat was perfect because I got tobe outside when I wanted. It was a boat with other abnormals. The train was horrendous though. I don't even want to speak about it. I must find another mode of traveling."

He nodded. "Well, I will take you to your room, let you change if you wish, then we'll travel around the building, talking. We can get dinner whenever you want and Magnus has a lovely wine selection she has given me the privilege of." Arell nodded and they continued. "I take it you've had the displeasure of coming in contact with the local mutt, Henry?" She laughed. "He's a HAP? No wonder he was looking at me as if I smelled. Which is unlikely because I am perfectly clean. Where does he work?" Nikola raised his eyebrows. "On the bottom floor, why my beloved?" She smiled. "I owe him a few. Now, tell me how you got your powers back."

[[WHAT?!?! How can someone be afraid of purple? It's AMAZING. Haha. As you can tell, it's muh favorite color.]]

After returning the money, Henry had hoped to quell this notion that he would be demoted to pointless, physical labor, but apparently it turned out not to be as fruitful as he had hoped. Arella acted like the one that didn't want to cause anyone to have to trouble with her things, making him just blandly stare at her, while at the same time feeling that this didn't help him prove his point. Even Helen was on her side. His eyes closed forcefully but without fuss, before slowly lowering his head in consent, but he was not going to enjoy it. With Bigfoot, it wouldn't be that much of a strenuous exercise, but considering that she was Tesla's, she probably had lead boulders in her luggage just to aggravate the ones unfortunate enough to be forced to carry them.

Reopening his eyes, he rejoined the conversation as one of the few listeners in the room, watching Dr. Magnus ask the question that he had wondered the moment she had arrived. How long was she going to stay here with them? The answer that he received was not a welcome one. Literally biting his tongue, his eyes were glued to her as if they had locked themselves in place. She wasn't staying for just a few days but months, as in many endless amounts of days tied together to form long sections of times..those kinds of months? He put his hand over his mouth, his fingers squishing his lips together, suppressing his anguish, while hopelessly staring at the woman in charge. No, no way. She couldn't honestly be allowed to stay here for that long. He began to think of excuses he could drum up to shorten this time, but in the end he could only shield his eyes from the inevitable.

Finally, as the soirée was coming to a close, Henry withdrew his hand from his face, and let it fall to his forearm on the other side. He refused to acknowledge their departure, but felt better as he watched them turn away. However, before he could breathe out the built up frustration, Nikola flashed another threat at him, which only made him turn away, rolling his eyes to the ceiling while clenching his jaw. His eyes only squinted more so when Arella gave her final parting, as well. "I wish the feeling was mutual," he mumbled under his breath, before closing the door behind them.

He breathed out a constricted breath at Will's comment. "The vampiric gene doesn't seem to be the only thing that runs in that family," he told him, leaning his head back in exhaustion. "Please, tell me she isn't going to stay for months. Tesla is already a pain to deal with, but now I have to work with two of them?" he complained to the others, leaning his back against the door. "I should have just kept the money if I was still going to have to fetch her luggage." He rolled his head against the door, before figuring the sooner he could get the task over with the quicker he could get back to work on something that might be somewhat beneficial. "If anybody needs me, just follow the sound of the ringing bell at the counter," he sighed, this time he himself wasn't even amused by his sad humor, as he opened the door and began to walk back to the elevator.

---

The heavist of Arella's luggage was luckily handled by Big Guy, while Henry was stuck with several of the smaller bags, which although weighed less than his friend's load, they were much more awkward to carry. Every so often one would threaten to tumble to the ground, which made him quickly try to recover his grasp, not wanting to be accused of mishandling these wicked devices. "There better be a thanks at the end of this one way or another.." he told his loading partner, setting the boxes in front of her room's door, before knocking on it.


((EXACTLY! it's like the best color! xD The one I thought was one of the funniest was a fear of long words..and the phobia's name was hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia. xD))

"Henry, she's Tesla's daughter. From what he was telling me before you all came in, her mother was a simple affair, but she fell pregnant with Arella. He decided he would ackwoledge her as a daughter, but that she needed to stay with her mother while he traveled. Something happened and the mother tried to keep Arella away, but they managed letters. So, for eighteen years, he's had nothing of her but a letter. I'm not going to deny them a few months now." Helen looked up at him before turning to paperwork on her desk. Will walked by and patted him on the shoulder. "It'll be alright man. She didn't seem that bad." Kate just smirked and walked out of the office.

~~~

They walked into her room and Arella looked around. "This is marvelous Nikola. I don't know why you didn't tell me about this place sooner. So, how are Helen and you?" Nikola sat down and poured himself a glass of wine that was sitting on the table. "Same as always. I give myself to her, but she still refuses. Strong will." She laughed, then went to her bed and fell onto the bed. "Ah, this is so comfortable. Why are you here?" He shrugged and took another sip. "I wanted to see you and this is the safest location I know. Besides, don't we all need a respite now and then?"

"So, what have you been doing these past few years? I assume she's been dead for a few years, or you would've have some trouble coming to see me." Arella pushed off her heels, then sat up and nodded. "She has. I've just been traveling the world, experiencing what she wouldn't let me ex-perience." He nodded and was about to say something when there was a knock at the door. Nikola wrinkled his nose. "Dog." She giggled, then padded over in her bare feet to get the door. The Big Guy and Henry had her luggle and Arella clapped her hands. "If you two would as kind as to put them by the bed, I'll do the rest. Thank you so so much for bringing them up to my room."

They put down her stuff and she smiled. "Thank you! I wouldn't have been able to carry all this myself. So, I guess I'll be see you two around." Arella flashed Henry a smile before walking to her trunk and opening it up. Arella knelt down and rummaged through it. "I have something for you Nikola. It was when I was traveling through Haiti, before the earthquake, learned somethings from the voodoo priests and priestesses." She handed him a voodoo doll, then twisted and sat on the floor. "It's supposed to be the real thing. Like, they even game me a bottle of pins to use if I actualy wanted to harm someone."

Nikola took the doll and looked at it. "Do you have a dog?"


((That's so funny. Fear of long words. I wonder what the limit of letts is before it becomes a long word.))

There was a giggling sound behind the door, making Henry's stomach shrink somehow in uneasiness. His eyebrows raised as he peered over his shoulder for a small yet casual distraction before he heard her feet scuttle across the carpet. As he began to lean down to get back his grasp on her luggage, the door flung open with Arella on the other side. He glanced up at her as her happiness remained on her face, brightly accentuating her smile and eyes. Suspiciously, he smiled back, making his expression look like an unidentified frown as his brow wrinkled slightly. "Uhm," he started as he lifted up the awkward box, feeling similar to it as he finished with, "you're welcome." Still, despite her face and new manner of joy, he looked at her with a cautious face as he walked in.

He barely paid much attention to the pleasantness of the room she would be staying in for..months. His eyes closed instinctively at the thought, but pushed on with little energy in the matter. From what Helen had said, he was now having a hard time finding the girl at fault for staying so long, even if it could potentially be unbearable. He couldn't wrap his mind around the fact that Tesla had only stayed in contact with her from a just a piece of paper. They could have at least e-mailed. He caught himself from laughing, disguising it into a ridiculous cough before reacquiring his uneven smile. The shape-shifter set his share of her things easily on her bed, just as he had been told. It was quite a proud moment when even without him there they refused to be tempted by the wicked laws of gravity.

"Okay, that's done," he spoke with a sigh, hoping that would be all from her, but was mildly surprised that his hopes had actually come true. He nodded his head as his thin lips held a short smile. "Probably not," he corrected her in a mock sadness, seeing her optimistic smile, probably one that was hiding plans of various inconvenient strategies against him, "I'm usually working, so.. that's unfortunate." He forced a frown, pushing his lips to the side as he shrugged. "But.. good luck, and good-bye," he concluded, his smile instantly returning as he turned away, making his exit with Big Guy. He was content that things had been relatively quick, and even his resentment towards the task had simmered down. As long as she stayed away in her room, talking to Tesla, perhaps it would work out favorably for not only him but for the both of them. There was at least the hope.

Only in the background, however, did he hear her mention a voodoo doll, and the predictable request of Tesla's that made him happily close the door behind him. "Well, at least I know that if I ever have a sharp, unbearable pain I'll know where it came from," he told his friend with a shake of his head, as they continued to walk down to the elevator.

((That's exactly what I thought! I guess you could play scrabble with them and find out that way. xD))

"Oh, well I tend to...wander. So, who knows if we run into each other?" She smiled and watched as they put the things down. "Since Nikola and I rarely sleep, I need something to do when we aren't talking. Maybe we'll have the pleasure of running into each other." She gave him a quick smile before sitting in front of her father. "No, they didn't have any dogs. Well, they might have, but this was all that they offered me and I wasn't going to push them for anything besides what they offered because they could have made a doll of me." They both laughed before it fell into a comfortable silence and Nikola took a sip of his wine. "Won't you have any?" Arella shook her head. "I'm not big on drinking anything with alcohol, no matter how little the amount in it."

Nikola looked at her strangely. "What?" Arella nodded. "I do drink it, but it has to be special occasions." He shook his head, then took another sip. "So, tell me about the rest of your travels." She nodded before launching into her first expedition after leaving her mother after her death. She'd been a dozens of expeditions in the last few years.

After hours of talking with Nikola, he went in search of Helen to speak with her about something. Arella changed into a blackdress and slipped on a pair of red slippers before shrugging on a jacket and walked out of her room. Walking down the hallway, Arella hesitated going into the hallway, but knew it was the only way to get around. She stepped insode and wrapped her arms around herself afterpressing the down button. She could start from the bottom and go up. It kept dinging and she slightly jumped at the noise and it gave a creak as it stopped. Arella jumped out of the elevator as soon as it opened and walked away as fast as she could.

When Arella looked around, she didn't see and grand staircase like she had before. It must be the only one in the place because Helen said there weren't any. She looked around and it was like a basement or something. Arella rubbed her arms as a chill went down her back and walked around, being quiet. She saw some lights and started heading towards it. "Hello? Is anyone down here? I think I went too far down when I was on the elevator. I was just hoping to explore some."

She kept walking even though there was no answer. Maybe there was someone down here and they just hadn't heard her. Arella brushed some of her brown hair out while continuing to follow the light. She gave a small chuckle at the that, the thougth of the cliche popping into her mind. Arella rubbed her arms again and continued to walk. Finally, she came upon someone and a small smile crept on her lips when she saw who it was.

"I was hoping to run into you dear Henry."

((Sorry it took so long to reply. I wonder what the reaction could be.))

Safely, Henry had made it back to his laboratory, leaving the last minute threats of both Teslas behind. One wanted to kill him, or at least do some relative damage, and the other wanted to be friends now, which was actually more frightening. At least with Nikola he knew where he stood, but with his daughter, it was rather confusing. He sighed, shaking his head with a tired, half-hearted smile. "Well, I've gone through worse," he told himself in another long breath of somewhat optimism. His lips formed a more meaningful expression, feeling much better to be in his own space again, feeling as if this was his sanctuary. "She probably won't even know this space exists," he reassured himself again as he took his seat behind one of the many tables.

It was a good feeling that was sweeping over him, making him almost forget that there was a new guest, and even a relative of said visitor, in the same building. The project that he had started on earlier in the day was now being resumed, but he had learned from last time. Interruptions were not allowed to happen during this part of the process. He glanced over at his phone a few feet away from him on the table, as music hummed gently in his ears to help block out external noises. It had taken him an hour, at least, to get the screwdriver out of the device's clamp. The security on it was difficult to say the least, but now he was back to where he started. "Careful," his lips mouthed. His hand was gripping a thin, metal spike, almost like a needle without the eye. As his thoughts encouraged him, he clenched his jaw in concentration, while the tool slipped through the pin-prick sized hole.

He waited for a few moments. That should have opened it. The soothing music from before now fell on deaf ears, as his eyes were glued on what the simple-looking box would do. Another pause went by. He bit his lip while his head craned to the side, hoping that any change would be able to be seen. "Oh, come on," he whined disappointedly, taking off his earbuds and standing up. It was only at the same moment did his eyes look up from the table did Arella's voice suddenly catch him off guard. The mere sight of her appearance made him blink with surprise, taking a step back along with it.

He continued to stare at her, having her words finally reach his ears. "What are you doing here? This is not categorized as just running into someone," he told her, before rubbing the back of his head in preparation of another headache. Henry's face looked actually crushed. His eyebrows had drawn together in a perturbed stance, while his eyes and mouth held another sense of disappointment. Gently, though, he pushed it away as he rubbed his forehead. This just wasn't his day. His project hadn't worked out, despite his best efforts, but maybe he needed a break, anyways. Taking his hand away from his face, he drew out another breath. "Do you..want anything?" he forced himself to ask.

((Not a problem! Sorry it took me a bit, too.))

"Actually it isn't 'categorized' as running into someone because I wasn't trying to find you. My father just went in search of Helen to speak with her about something, so I thought I'd explore." She shrugged her shoulders and moved over to better see what he was doing. She leaned over the table and stared for a moment before touching it with a fingernail. Nothing happened, so she assumed she'd done nothing wrong. Arella leaned back and looked at Henry. "So, what exactly does this thing do? Does it explode like a bomb when you throw it? Does it pop open to be a million different contraptions in a tiny little box? I did see that on a movie once and with you being the tech whiz, you could probably make it happen."

She walked around the room, looking at...stuff and all the wires that were hanging out. "Is this room safe? Nikola could come down here in a rage and electrocute all this stuff. How do you ever find anything?" She touched something annd it beeped loudly, so Arella quickly pulled her hand to her chest. She didn't want it bitten off by one of his techni-geek toys. "Why did you look disappointed when I came into the room? Am I really that much of a bore or a horrid person? I really try not to be." Arella continued walking around, moving things with her finger and getting random noises sometimes.

Arella pushed her hair back and turned to look at him. "I actually think of myself as fun. A new perspective." She giggled and walked back over to the opposite side of the counter. Arella sat down on a stool and looked back at the little black box. "It looks like it needs a jolt of electricity." She knocked on one spot llightly, and the security clamped down on one finger. Arella let out a high-pitched scream that reverberated walls and could have cracked class. Another abnormal ability. Her eyes turned black, but besides that and the scream, she didn't do anything. "Get the stupid thing off! Now!"

Still standing, his eyebrows raised as she answered him in the tone that he was most familiar to him from her. It was just a minute ago that she was all smiling and joyous of luggage moving. There was something seriously wrong with this one. "And you explored the very place that I happen to be in almost all the time?" he asked, almost genuinely. He felt that the coincidence was too much of one for it to be true, but the more he watched her, the less he cared about what brought her down here, making her leave was more important. "Wait, stop, don't touch that," he told her, reaching out for her hand, but was too late as she put her fingernail on it, waiting for it to react violent like all the other times. His breath welled up inside of his chest, but after a minute it slowly escaped as nothing happened. Instead, he looked at Arella with an unwanted gaze as her questions rambled on. "It doesn't do any of those things... well, I don't think it does. I'm not exactly sure, yet," he confided, his expression easing into a thoughtful one very briefly before he went back to staring at her. "And haven't you ever heard of a grenade before, anyways? Much easier than this."

Henry's eyes followed her, unwilling but impossible not to as all of his precious work was now being inspected by her careless fingers. "No, it's not safe at all," he answered immediately as he followed after her, finally making his way in front of her to perhaps stop her clueless rampage, "which is why you should probably leave." He held up his hands, before gesturing with them to the way she had come in, but it didn't seem to make much of an impression on her. "Don't-" he started, again too late. Another touch, another beep, and a bit of a smoky smell following. His eyes tightened with annoyance, struggling to be polite. He held back from the temptation to gawk at her at her question about his disappointment when she entered. She only seemed to be a destructive whirlwind! "Could you perhaps try harder?" he muttered under his breath. "Please, you can stop touching every single thing?! You're not eight," he told her, as he tried to turn off the things as quickly as he could after she touched them, but after shutdown, there was another problem caused by her hands.

Suddenly she stopped, making his hard work of stabilizing her mess match, but just barely. He took in a deep breath, carefully watching her with an aggravated manner. "I think of myself as sane. That's another great perspective to, you know?" he offered before forming a fist that collided straight into his forehead. Holding his balled-up hand against his skin for a moment, he was able to gather some much needed inner-peace, but as soon as it came, out of the corner of his eye he could see her lift up the box, making his mouth drop. "Put it down!" he yelled, rushing to her side, just in time to get the full piercing of her scream. His hands immediately were sent to his ears, but even with the force of them pinning down his hearing, the noise somehow managed to creep in. "Why did you touch it?! You just had to touch it! Why?!" he yelled, unable to control himself as his hands flung with frustration before rummaging through a drawer.

Quickly, he grabbed the set of pliers, much bigger than any normal pair. With them firmly in his hands, he was able to grasp a hold of the device and tug sharply to free Arella's finger from it. "There! Do NOT touch!" he warned again, before depositing it safely back on the table. He glanced at her eyes, but had to take another look to make sure of her new eyes. Tesla did mention something like that, so he remained quiet on the issue, and turned around to get a towel, knowing that there would definitely be blood with that. "Here," his voice turned a bit more considerate, even despite her behavior, as he put the cloth underneath her exposed finger before wrapping it together at the top.

"Well, I was trying to get to the floor I first walked on and I thought that 'one', would take me there. Obviously not because here I am. How was I to know you worked down here?" She threw her hands up and tried to look innocent, but she didn't know how well it worked. She picked up the black box to look at it and it clamped down on her finger. Arella shrilled and her eys changed. It hurt so much she couldn't even shake her wrist to try and get it off. Henry finally pulled it off and she saw deep gashes in either side of her finger. Henry wrapped a cloth around her finger and she whimpered.

Arella turned when she heard footsteps. Magnus, Will, Kate and the Big Guy were there along with her father. Nikola saw Henry holding the cloth around her finger and he started towards him, his features changing vampiric. Arella dropped the cloth and put a hand on his chest. "Don't Nikola. I was the one touching things and he was trying to stop me." Magnus walked over and looked at Arella's finer. "That scream was not the one of a vampire, but this speeded healing is. Nikola, is her mother an abnormal?" He laughed and put an arm around Arella's waist to help her. "Dear Magnus, do you really think I would mate with a mortal?"

~~~~~About a month passes~~~~~

Arella stood in Magnus' office with her arms crossed across her chest. She tapped her foot as Henry stood on the other side. "Now, you two cannot keeo acting like this. You're keeping this Sanctuary on the brink! Arella, destroying Henry's things in his lab. Henry, jamming the elevator so Arella was stuck and causing her a panic attack. This cann't continue!" Arella kept silent and wouldn't look at Henry. "I'm sending you to to Cape Cod to pick up an abnormal for me. It should be a fairly easy task since the abnormal as already been captured."

"I don't want to go anywhere with him!" Arella stomped her foot and Magnus stood. "And he doesn't want to go anywhere with you. But, I need you to learn to co-habitat so we can try and leave peacefully here!"

Henry glanced over at her eyes as he heard her whimper. "Yeah, that's gotta hurt," he agreed with a sigh, turning back to tying the towel in a simple knot to hold it in place. "You should heal qui-" he began, but the sound of footsteps made him stop as he saw the rest of the staff, including Tesla, walk in. As soon as he made eye contact with the vampire scientist, he took a step back and opened his mouth, prepared to answer whatever assumptions he had already made. It didn't take long at all, actually, for him to make the first move, though, and the shape-shifter raised his chin instinctively to make himself somehow look taller to protect the rest of him. Gradually, however, he slid back into the way he was before, watching carefully as Arella actually told the truth, something that he hadn't exactly expected.

Cautiously, he began to ease back into the surroundings, but kept a slight eye on Tesla as he crossed his arms. Magnus was right, now that his thinking wasn't clouded with worry over protecting his work. The slight ringing in his ears proved to be quite the evidence of her suspicion. It could only be his answer to her that would make Henry roll his eyes to the ceiling, not wanting to even venture into any thought of his mating preferences. "Can I please just work alone now?" he asked, his head peering over the pair as he looked at his boss, disregarding the two main factors of his decision that literally stood in front of him.

It had been a month, almost to the day, since Arella walked into the life of the Sanctuary. Every day the air between her and the tech wizard thickened, until it reached its breaking point with everyone else, particularly with Magnus. Now, Henry stood in front of the woman's desk, a few feet to his right was the one person to blame for all of this. He refused to look at her, and instead focused mainly on the one who had forced them to appear together before her. His lips pushed to the side childishly as she reprimanded the two of them. The elevator incident had been needed! It was the only way to stop her from coming down and wrecking more of his things! However, he just silently stood there, biting his tongue as the doctor continued to speak, but the quiet didn't last.

Before he could say anything, his mouth simply hung open with shock as Arella's voice filled the room in retaliation. Closing his mouth, he began to shake his head as his hands lifted up towards his boss. "You're just sending us away for us to be the outside world's problem, doc," he told her, looking at her with a tilted head. "Trust me, this will only make things worse..much worse." His hands found their way inside of his pockets, as a look of aggravation and a heartbreaking sadness crossed his face over the whole situation. "Besides," she added, "she'll complain the entire time. Please, don't do this...Please!"

"I will not complain the entire time! You're just a chicken! You don't want to spend any alone time with me. Afraid I'll do something to you." She rolled her eyes over at him and tossed her head, looking back at Magnus. "I'll do this. I'm up for it, even if Wolfie's not. I can get someone else to go with me." Magnus shook her head. "I'm afraid not. I have everyone else, including your father out on the field. You two have to go together to get this abnormal for me. I can't leave because I'm in the middle of trying to find out what properties our last abnormal's venom has. I di believe it is a cure to something.

"You are the only two I have to go and fetch this abnormal for me. You'll be getting there by boat, so it should take about a week. You are leaving in an hour. The Big Guy has already packed your clothes. Henry, all you have to do is pack your technology. Anything you will need to protect the abnormal on your way back will be given to you in Cape Cod. You are to protect each other and to bring this abnormal back to me safely."

Arella crossed her arms. She really didn't like the fact that someone was touching her clothes. Arella and Henry turned to leave the room when Magnus called out to them. Something flicker in front of Arella and she instantly reached out to grab it from the air. She opened her hand and in it were two rings. A silver ring with a single diamond...eight Karats. And a silver band. She looked over and saw Henry turning a thicker silver band in his hand.

"Oh, and I need you two to be a married couple. That's what they think down in Cape Cod. For some reason, single people can't pick up this abnormal. You'll have to share a room and a bed on the way there, the hotel in Cape Cod and one on the way back." Arella's mouth fell open.

[I don't know how you feel about that last part. I can take it out.]

At Arella's response, he finally broke the ritual of not looking at her, as it was almost impossible not to with that talk. "Chicken?! ..What?!" he fumed helplessly, at a loss for the right words. "That is..Exactly! what I'm talking about, doc," he directed at Magnus, but continued to stare at Tesla's daughter. She was simply unbelievable. "I'm not scared of you at all. You just...annoy me.." he told her honestly with a gaping frown, before sighing heavily. He didn't even bother to respond to her last statement. The only thing he could do was give her a slight glare as he folded his arms across his chest. Why couldn't Magnus just take their advice and let them be? They were never going to be compatible, not with the way she was behaving! But as he looked over at his boss, he knew that, like most things, she wasn't going to budge.

In this predicament, there wasn't much of a choice other than following orders and at least just listen. What he heard, though, wasn't anywhere close to helpful, but the thought of knowing that this meeting would be over soon was somewhat reassuring. It could be worse, anyways. He forced himself to nod his head once to make sure to show that he understood, but other than that, the sulking look on his face stayed put. "Fine," he finally answered, "but if this 'get-away' plan of yours fails, promise me you'll just give up on us, okay?" He sighed, but gave a softer look towards her than before, only to have it leave when he turned away as he glimpsed at Arella's.

In his mind, he was already whining about their trip as though it were taking place right now, but his thoughts were interrupted at the sound of something hitting the young woman's palm. His eyes tightened with curiosity, and then immediately widened with another wave of uncertainty. Carefully, he looked over at the ring from the box. Something had been engraved in the inside of the band, but Magnus' voice drew his eyes away from it. Her voice went through him like it was nothing because surely he hadn't heard her right. His brow furrowed with confusion, before he slowly looked back at the ring. "You're not kidding.." he managed to say, feeling his stomach turn. "No..this..no..." he muttered, pushing the ring back into the box as if it were something toxic. He laughed nervously, hoping that this was still just a joke. "Funny, doc..really funny there," he told her, but his voice showed that even he didn't believe his excuse. Okay, now they really couldn't get any worse..

((You better not! I love those types of situations. xD I'm completely good right now. -laugh-))
