"How do you feel today mr Dunford?" the short blonde with a busty rack questioned; it was so cliche, that Ash couldn't help but laugh as a response to her question. "Really?" he then proceeded. "Why do all therapist start sessions with how are you feeling bullshit?" he added, crossing his arms before leaning back and sprawling out on the couch. Staring at the ceiling, Ash sighed. Nothing helped. He'd always be who he is now, no matter what professional help he sought. And half the time, he only did that to get the drugs they offered, not that anti psych meds provided a good high, but the little yellow round pills made him feel a little weightless. So he continued these sessions, even if he did mock the therapist for half of the hour he spent with her.
The only thing presentable about his therapist, were her boobs, and even those were a waste, more than a hand full or mouth full is a waste so he'd always heard. Ash indulged in more male on male activity. It was far less stressful than a bitchy woman nagging at him. "Mr Dunford, are you with me?" Dr Tracey asked, clicking her ink pen over and over again, causing Ash's gaze to avert to her. "Obviously." he stated before sitting up from his laying position. "The last time you were here, you expressed how much you'd like to snatch your Chief's tongue out over a case he suspended you from" she spoke almost as if she wee embarrassed to quote Ash.
Ash chuckled, before clearing his throat, giving her the nod of his head. "How come you don't wear your wedding ring around patients?" Ash questioned, staring straight through her with the most serious expression a persons face was capable of holding. "This isn't about me Mr. Dunford, it's about you" the therapist said, seeming pissed at him but she expressed it with a smile, "Maybe it should be about you" he added. Ash struggled to bring to light what his true issues were, especially to someone that was paid to have an opinion. That only meant that she didn't actually care. Ash supposed he could pretend to care too if it was for the right amount.
The therapist jotted a few things on paper before handing Ash his normal prescriptions. "Hopefully you'll talk a little more next week. You can call me Tracey, Ash. Anything that may help make you a little more comfortable, eventually mr Dunford you'll - - -" Ash held his hand up, cutting the dr off mid sentence as he got an alert with an address attached to it. The case he had been removed from, had turned up another dead body. Suspended or not, Ash made his way off the couch, hovering over the short blonde who doctored him back to sanity, or at least tried to. "We'll finish next time, I'll give more, promise" Ash stated, before storming out in a hurry. It only took a matter of minutes to arrive to a scene full of blue flashing lights, people crying hysterically, yellow tape and yellow cones. This was Ash's comfort zone, as bad as that sounded.
Ash wasted no time in walking to the lifeless body laid on the ground littered in stab wounds. His eyes widened and for a moment, he wallowed in the scene before him. Something about death had always lured Ash in. More than any sane human could say. But, to avoid drawing attention, he went ahead and knelt down to do the job he was paid for. "Shitty way to go.." he expressed, shaking hishead, before sliding a pair of latex gloves on. Reaching down, Ash swiped his hand over the victim's eyes, closing them, so he could proceed. "We have some abrasions here on the left of his neck, and in total 16 stab wounds. But..." he trailed off, lifting the man's neck a little carelessly, as he pulled his head back and fourth, realizing he hadn't died from the stab wounds scattered through out the majority of his flesh. He was dead, it wasn't like he'd feel Ash yanking him around. But,, it did get Ash a few mean looks from those watching, and a man suited up like a lawyer now hovering over him. "He could have possibly survived the stab wounds, if they hadn't hit any major arteries, either way; he died from suffocation" Ash stated, before standing to his feet.
Walking just below his feet, the human psthologist grabbed a piece of rope, dangling it in front of the idiots who'd overlooked it. "And you all grumble about me in the station? If I hadn't found this, I guess this man's death would have been chalked up to stab wounds killing him huh?" he questioned, before dropping the shirt, yet thick rope into an evidence bag. "Fucking morons" he added, before turning, colliding face first with the man he had just saw wearing a suit, hovering over him as he examined the corpse. "Damn. Excuse you" Ash stated, before kneeling again. He liked giving the bodies a second, sometimes even a third look. There were times that the smallest lacerations led to much more than just a cut; if overlooked, families simply got no closure, only a fony ass story about how their loved on died. Ash wouldn't let that happen on his watch.
In the many years of living, Lucius grew to be in love with his passion for being a lawyer. Something about it made him feel regrettable to be a jerk to everyone and no one can not get out of her word alive. What does it mean? Lucius in the bad got the reputation of being the unstoppable lawyer who never lost a case in his life. Be young the fact, he has been thinking about going back in to be a lawyer again but sadly times as changed as he had to know the new rules.
He felt like laughing at the more ridiculous laws they came up with wondering who wrote it while being drunk. Lucius had a good person to help him with his studies as he was the backup for him if he felt sick. The star helped one of his friends cases and became successful like he never retired or gotten rusty at his reputation. Will being a substitute for his friend ended up a room for Lucius. As he was being the courts to see if he can apply which they have given him everything they needed when he got a call about his dear friend everything changed for Lucius as he rushed out to drive recklessly to the scene.
When he got there Lucius wanted it to be a joke as sick it sounds like but when his brown eyes saw the yellow tape told him it was true. "No No this is not happening." He said repeating over again. It was his mentor his friend, Lucius didn't care what the police said he wanted to see the body with his own eyes. He showed his training badge like that will do anything looking around when he found the body. Walking over he didn't see a man coming as face first they collided. "Your excuses sir," Lucius said when he turned to look at the body, sure enough, it was his friend. Everything around him stopped but not completely, he has been death on people he cared about dying so he tries not to have connections and be an asshole to everyone.
"Sir what is his cause of death?" He asked looking around, Lucius will find the person responsible. The day before his testing at the court this happens this was not the promise his friend made. Lucius rubbing his eyelids even everyone asking him to get behind the yellow line. The thing just could not get more annoying. "I'm his understudy the one who will become his place in the courthouse. Lawyer as of tomorrow. I want answers now." He didn't notice her lawyer voice go wiped into his voice out of the blue. He didn't care when will he care, look after yourself and no one else. That's how he always looks at things.
It was true that Ash hated supernaturals. In fact, he despised them so much that he'd already met himself a Celestial who he had some pretty twisted intentions for. Whining and dining her first would allow him the advantage he needed. But, the human had found himself tangled up in some pretty conflicting feelings about the whole ordeal, enough that he knew he'd have trouble going through with the plans he had for her. While glancing down to the deceased, Ash grimaced. This was why he hated them. This man lost his life because of starved animal / Valkyr in other words. The two puncture wounds didn't kill him though, he hadn't been drained of blood; No, he had been strangled. Ash assumed it was a sense of fear that had washed over who ever did this, trying to cover up the fact that they'd been feeding on him, by strangling him instead.
Ash knew someone had been hovering over top of him, but he hadn't taken the time to look back as he thuroughly examined the corpse, making sure not to miss anything. The smallest things could have led to the biggest clues. And, Ash was one of their best forensics, he never let anything past him. Clearing his throat, Ash let the man's head go, causing it to make a small thud as it hit the concrete he as sprawled out on "whoopsie" he said before hopping to his feet and popping off his rubber gloves; turning to face the male who had arrived demanding answers. Wide eyed and speechless for a moment, Ash's jaw dropped. "Well hello to you" he smirked, before glancing from the lifeless body back over to the male who stood opposite side of him, unable to keep his tongue from pushing past his lips in a seductive manner as he licked his lower one. Like the dog that he was. "How'd you push your way past the cops? They're pretty anal about letting someone this close to a dead body unless of course... you had a connection with him didn't you?" he asked, but seeing the saddened, shocked, angered expression on the guy's face, Ash knew the answer already.
"Sorry for your loss" the human stated before placing his hands behind his back, shifting hyperly from one foot to the next. Death compelled Ash, so his job always made him feel right at him. Waiting for the crowd around them to disappear, the human eyed the other male from head to toe and back up again, "I'll tell you exactly what happened, over a drink" he purred. It probably sounded manipulative as hell, but Ash had yet to lay eyes on a male figure like this one. He made the tears that he shed look hot even. Ash knew his luck, that they'd get to some bar, or even Ash's apartment, and this man would end up being some supernatural being who could snap him like a twig, but that was a risk he loved taking; adrenaline seemed to burn right through him when he took chances like these.
"How well did you know the victim?" Ash then decided to ask, raising a suspicious brow at him before tilting his head, cocking a brow as he saw what appeared to be a wallet by the victims inner thigh that hadn't been picked up. "Do you idiots wanna take this or should you just leave this out to?!" he yelled to the cops who stood on the sidelines of the scene, most of them tangled up with young females young enough to be their daughters who had shown up to the scene just to be nosey. Shaking his head, Ash waited for them to bring an evidence bag over, and looked back to the guy who'd came there frantic. As he made his way back to him, the human stuck a hand out, "I'm Ash; forensic pathologist for the city, may as well say i'm the only one" he stated cockily, flashing another pearly while grin.
Living in the world the star is trying to get us to again is pretty hard already. Hell even with his brown eyes looked down on the other lifeless body of his mentor was not like he had seen death before. Broken. Lucius could not believe his friend is dead and for what? Will justice serve him right? The star might jot know a thing or two about the new world they live in today but he knew death is always the same. Lucius has seen countless of his friends, and others dead if it's not in front of his eyes is him finding their bodies.
The star made his way to the body and jot to touch anything when he heard a voice. Trying around he found a Male "You think it's obvious why Am hear. I came from the courthouse after getting the call. His brown eyes looked at the other, human, very hot but it was not important, cocky? What a mix that he does not need in his life. Lucius didn't need to snap at the other, it killed him. A good person like many others is gone too soon who wanted to make a difference. Looks like it's up to Lucius once again. He looked at his friend as he sighed with anger. "Whoever did this to you I will find them and bring them to justice. Mark my words."
As the human spoke the star nodded knowing it was a common thing to say to someone who lost someone, one saying he can never get used too. "He was a good man. Man of the law, a lawyer at his finest. He wanted to make the judicial system a better place for Humans and Supernatural alike. His vision was going to save more lives guess that's why he was targeted." Lucius sighed as he turned to look at the other once again. A drink? He had a questionable face as he soon realized that that meant. "Ah, I see. So you're making a bargain. Withholding information under the benefit of someone else's. Sneaky but if I can get answers then I will make a bargain myself. As a lawyer to be and this mans understudy I want to be the one to bring that person to justice. His family will be questioned and I know they would stand by me to be their lawyer." Lucius still knew how to play around his information. The star saw something in the man he knew the others want it was not about information at all.
"He is my mentor like I said keep up. I've been working over him for the days few months. He didn't want to train others unless they are passionate and truthful, he saw that in me and … thought I deserved that chance." Lucius almost called out he was old and again going through the process one again. It didn't make him happy to it got him this far so he must be proving the new generation of the world right or wrong. Lucius watched the other people in the scene take the body away as the star hollowed his pride. This can't be happening. First, the guards locking them up for whatever reason the had… thanks to Malva talking to him that night. Now a murder. Things could not get any better for Lucius.
When the star learned the others name he nodded. "Ash. Will your name fits the job." He made a sadistic joke know it was not the time for any at that moment. "The only one… what is this world we live in today?" He asked rubbing his face in annoyance. Back when he was working they had four to three on cases like this. Guessing people grew too weak to look at a dead body and call it a job. Whatever he guessed. By watching the man's behavior he called it Chucky. "Someone is very confident in how he is." The star said nothing the other smile. He is a charmer he could tell from that smile, what will they end up doing? Lucius knew what he stated before Ash is Hot he didn't believe in love to see that. Maybe the drinks will be a better chance for him to see what the other is really like.
Ash observed the other male for a moment, waiting for him to speak. But, when he did, Ash could only smirk. Popping each of his rubber gloves off, he shoved them into his pants pockets and walked closer to the other male. "Nothing's obvious to me. I ask questions. And questions deserve answers. But, with how you've been fighting back tears, i'm assuming you were close to this man" he expressed, and gestured down to the dead body before averting his gaze to look at the distraught male again. "Im sorry for your loss" he spoke after hearing the male make the deceased a promise to bring who ever did this, to justice.
"Sadly, anyone who's not family, isn't supposed to be beyond the yellow tape." Ash then said, trying to keep the guy from an officer escorting him away. Ash surprisingly found himself intrigued by the male's explanation of the dead lawyer on the ground. "He wanted to make the judicial system better for both human and supernaturals?" he asked, swallowing harshly. Ash still had yet to encounter half the supernaturals that resided in this city. And with his hatred for most of them, he wasn't sure if the male he'd been checking out, was one or not. But, with the slight glow he'd seen around him when he'd gotten angry at first arrival, Ash thought he may of been a Celestial, just like the painter who'd disappeared from Ash's life.
Amoura had left. Without so much as a go to hell. Ash had assumed he'd grown close to the star. But with the way she left, he figured she didn't give a shit about him. Oh well, no need in crying over losses when you had much more to gain in the end. "It's interesting. The way you explained. It sounds like maybe a supernatural did this to him. Why would supernaturals wanna make peace with humans? Humans are basically prey for most of them" he expressed. He knew he sounded narrow minded, because in this city, sups and humans were supposedily co-existing.
Ash chuckled, and folded his arms across one another, gazing to the male with complete surprise. "Damn, you got me. I didn't expect for the tables to turn. So good job. I guess there are more people than myself who know how to be sly. But you got yourself a deal" Ash responded, flashing the other a wink. But, Ash did catch the way the other looked at him. It was in a way, Ash had always wanted a significant other to see him. So, he had planned on making that drink last. He wanted to get to know the guy he was talking to.
Ash laid a hand on the male's shoulder when the coroners took the body away, and gestured to the road. "Wanna go get that drink?" he questioned, before withdrawing his touch. He didn't want the other male to become uncomfortable. "Seems like you could use it now" he added, before readying himself to get going. This had been one hell of a night so far, but it seemed to have gotten better the moment the other male arrived. Perhaps there was something else in store here. Ash couldn't help but let his curiosity nag at him. "I'm sure if he deemed you worthy of a chance, then you earned it. Loss is never easy, I lost everything.. but thats another story for another time" he expressed, knowing how full on details he could go, with how much damage Ash had endured in his life time so far.
Ash raised a brow then, as the male made a sadistic dark joke. He couldn't help but smirk. That sort of joke was right up his alley, as dark as Ash was himself, he could always appreciate someone else with a dark sense of humor. "I get that often. Though It's refreshing to see someone else with a twisted sense of humor" he expressed, and rolled his tongue over his lips. Truth be told, Ash would have done had his hands all over the male by now had it been any other circumstance. Getting a drink, and getting to know someone first.. that was new for Ash, but he didn't see the harm in it either.
Ash nodded when the male stated how confident he was. "Confidence has always been my thing. Is it working?" he asked, and gave the other a charming smile, just to see. "By the way.. I gave you my name.. whats yours?" he asked "otherwise ill just call you mancandy until you give it to me" he smirked, and began walking towards the parked cars. "Im assuming you drove yourself here?" he asked, deciding if he had, that Ash would just ride with him.
The star didn't look at the male for the first part what the other said. When Lucius did he heard the rubber gloves as watched the other with a sigh. "Not like I've seen death before. You know asking questions sometimes bring trouble, answers can be the way if someone is not careful." Lucius said and he turned the other male. Am sorry for your loss, what a phrase that just loves to turn back to him. He lost count how many times he heard someone say that.
"He has no family, his sister was murdered two years ago as his parents died to natural causes. Am the other one he thought is family. Let them take me away all I know is am not leaving unless I get answers. Same as you questions deserve answers." Lucius should not talk to anyone so lightly, it was his weakness at that given moment and it is a mistake he will never do again. " People who have good hearts. It's rare to see those people these days. Sadly those people are gone too soon." Lucius didn't know if the other knew supernatural or how good he is picking up things he needed to be careful.
As the other's voice came to his ears Lucius said and turned to the other. "Am not just saying that laying out like there is no reason. A Human trying to make a balance for both knowing the hatred towards both. Any little thing Human's try to make things better sometimes gets killed due to change is unwelcomed. It can be both who can very easily think about getting rid of him. Humans can hate Humans as much as Supernatural can hate other Supernatural. There is no perfect balance at all. Change is the treat. It's true for that you said but not all supernaturals want to pray on Humans but again it can be vise vera on Human who can outsmart a supernatural. We can be here all day talking about this but I don't want to stand here and look pretty." He said with him rolling his eyes with a sigh. Why does every time something happens he has to meet and talk to someone? What is on him other then his good looks and hair make people want to talk to him.
Back in his time, no one couldn't fight with Lucius due to how good and hard-headed he is. Facts are facts as much as people's body language says a lot more than someone's words. In a way, you can say Lucius can read a person actions and read in between the lines. "Not like am being sly I got the vibe you might be flirting with me. You look at him also told me if you ask to get me alone and then you give me the answers it would benefit both of use. Lucius never wanted love due to he knew it was a waste of time. Something goes wrong the breakups with bringing the arguments, guilt trips and the true colors of a single person. He saw it all but Lucius knows if someone like him that way he is hard to please.
The star felt the other's hand on his shoulder as he looked with his brown eyes as he watched the hand withdrawal. Lucius didn't know why he likes the others hand there. What was Lucius saying? The lone bachelor who wants to burn out alone who no one to be sad about him is not facing that fact right now. Lucius closed his eyes, he can't tell the other fall in love with him. The star can tell the other had to be Human which meant Lucus will watch another death once again if he does not pull apart from the other in his lifetime.
"Yes, that drink will be nice." Lucius was numb to the death in front of his eyes but he does not mind a free drink at all. "This is only the beginning with me. Looks like am officially back to his own self and job." Lucius caught the part of the other said he lost everything. The star knew how the feeling felt. " Am sure that other time will come. For me to tell you about my story will be complicated so am not going to waste your time." In truth, he didn't know how to tell the other he didn't know much from his time and how long he was captured and everything in between. Not like the other male would believe he is a star from the night sky.
Lucius never meets another person who was sarcastic and with the same humor as him. Looks like Lucius met his match Ash. The star for once was interested in someone it was more like him wanting to know the male's story and how they can gain a relationship with each other. "I mean it was there and I had to say it. Who knows there might be a crime scene with actual ash of someone. Just don't choke up when that does happen." Lucius said with a little bit of care in his voice.
The star chuckled as Lucius looked at the male. " I mean I can ask the same about my looks and my charm. Confidence comes in all shapes and sizes Ash. Depends on what your confidence means." The star stopped what he was thinking about when the other asked about his name. "Ok one names is Lucius and second Mancandy? Is that one of your flirty pick-up lines?" he asked knowing it was a nickname. Really he didn't know what to think about someone gives him a 'nickname'. Lucius nodded as he brought his remote out to unlocked the car. The star looked back to the building where his dear friend got killed as he got in knowing the best thing for him was to get away.
Ash became fascinated with this guy, and rather quickly at that. His appearance was rewarding too, but Ash didn't aim for someone who had just a pretty face. Anyone who knew Ash Dunford, knew he was attracted to someone with a sharp tongue. After restraining himself from firing back with yet another smart asked comment, the human stepped a little closer to the male, who seemingly wasn't a human at all. Ash had met another Celestial before, and he knew for sure this guy had similar traits. The slight glow around him every time he got flustered gave it away.
"You're right. Your questions deserve a few answers, and I will gladly give them to you.. but can't they wait?" he asked, eyeing the male next to him "I mean, we have all night" he added, before averting his gaze back to the body before them. Ash knew Lucius wasn't going anywhere, not until he watched the body get loaded up and hauled away. "There's nothing more you can do besides wait. They're not gonna want to ask you anything until after they have examined the body; so relax and join me for a drink" he said in a nonchalant manner.
Ash arched a brow when Lucuis said that good people didn't exist anymore, and those who did, left the world too quickly "They still exist.. they're just rare and hard to find. But, if you look in the right places, trust me, they are there" he said in response. Ash was a wicked man who didn't do emotions, and he typically wasn't a people person. The entire ECPD knew Ash and knew better than to approach him for conversation. If it wasn't work related, they all steered clear of the human. But, he had for some reason made an exception when Lucius arrived to the scene tonight, and now he had to take this a little further to figure out why.
Ash couldn't help but stare at the male absently when he began raising is tone a little, to explain how there wasn't a perfect balance between humans and supernaturals. "Okay okay, I got it, chill dude.. Ive just seen a lot of humans go down .. in this exact way. Same wounds, same everything.. it's not hard to pick out the deaths caused by supernaturals. Really" he expressed, using a tone of arrogance himself as he stood face to face with Lucius, never once breaking eye contact except for the moment he let his eyes roam the males body from head to toe and back again, with a sly smirk on his face.
Ash smirked, and could only chuckle when Lucius boldly called him out on his own shit, finding it harder and harder to not want him. "Oh no you're not sly at all, just very blunt, but i kinda like that, just like I kind of like the way you called me out for flirting with you.. because yeah, I definitely was. You're hot, and you seem to know that" he expressed, shaking his head amused. Lucius had a natural confidence about him with how he carried himself, and that turned Ash on more than anything.
Ash realized that the other enjoyed his touch, but when Lucius closed his eyes, Ash wasn't sure what'd happened just then. "Something wrong? you seem to have drifted off in thought there for a second" he pointed out, and assumed exactly what Lucius had on his mind. "Don't worry. No strings attached.. I mean I wouldn't mind, but i'm not pressuring you.. for tonight, we can just have a little fun, yeah?" he asked, biting his lower lip. Ash's urges were now running wild. He was sure that this all chalked up to lust .. at least for now anyways, since he didn't know Lucius well enough to want him for more than what he had in mind.
"Good deal. I knew you'd agree anyways" he said sarcasitcally when Lucius said the drink would be nice. Ash could sense a pretty strong connection with him, but Ash was a jerk who loved sex .. so he wasn't sure if it was that, or if he actually saw something in Lucius that he wanted to hold onto. "Who say's youll be wasting my time if you tell me your story? It is my time isn't it? Its only wasted if I waste it myself, and I definitely ain't wasiting my time by getting to know you.. in my opinion, thats my time well spent" he said in response, flashing Luc a wink. When Lucius told Ash not to get choked up, the human raised a brow at him, "Be careful, starting to sound like you care a little" he teased jokingly, before climbing into Lucius's car as he unlocked it.
When they both climbed in, the tension between them made Ash inhale sharply, and flex his hands into fists, though he did well enough to ignore it for the moment "I suppose you're right.. but you have a natural confidence, I like a man who knows how to carry himself.. and the way you carry yourself kind of excites me" he admitted, locking eyes with him, and waiting with anticipation to spend the rest of this night having shots with Luc and unwinding after a hard days work. The way Lucius looked back to the crime scene made Ash feel a little bad for him. Ash had been anything but comforting when they first approached each other, but now that he was about to have drinks with a man he was literally sitting there craving some attention from, he didn't figure it would be the worse thing, to try and take his mind off the departed.
"I'm sorry for your loss, man" he started, and slid his hand over, resting his palm on his upper thigh, squeezing just barely. "Ive lost a lot of people, it's a shitty thing to go through.. maybe these drinks will take your mind off of it, and ill do my best to keep you distracted" he added, but found himself heaving a little, and had to slide his hand down Luc's leg, and away from his upper thigh, as it seemed to work the human up more than he cared to admit. As they drove, the ride was pretty silent, but when they finally came upon the bar, Ash grinned, and got out when the engine shut off, to open Lucius's door for him, waiting, so they could enter together. "One of my favorite spots here" he stated, and scanned the surroundings with a slight sense of paranoia nagging at him.
The star watched the other male stare at him as he too is trying to figure out the other. Lucius didn't know if the other is supernatural or not but something deep down he felt like the other is human. He is not one to look at someone to be like oh there is a pretty face he does not care about appearances or what the other male had in mind of thinking.
Lucius looked at the other next to him as his brown eyes caught sight of the others. he didn't know what is doing on or anything but the star sighed. "Is there something better than telling me what I want to know at the moment?" he asked. Lucius didn't understand flirting at all so everything action the human did was not understand Lucius's understanding. When Ash talked real with him the star nodded and sighed. "Yeah, I guess. I really need one." Lucius said to bring up his phone to see the time. Knowing it wouldn't hurt to have a drink or two.
The male he rolled his eyes like he was not buying that at all. " If they are so rare then that means they don't exist to me that is. Unless you are saying you're that then I will stand corrected. Lucus has met a lot of shady people though out the years. The only person he has met who is nice is a woman by the name of Serenity. There was no hope for someone to change him and that is what Lucius believed. Lucius knew no matter what happened to him he seems to help others than himself. Lucius didn't know why people want to talk to him but here the other male is doing. The only reason the star is talking to the other is to know what happened to him. Little does he know this very male might behave to have meaning later.
The star didn't mean to go on his high horse to talk about what his dear friend wanted to or was trying to do. Lucius said as he put his hands in his jacket pockets. "I am chill am just saying that point. " Lucius never broke eye contact from the other as it seems to be the same with the other male. Seeing the other smirks made the star confused as to what is going on inside Ash's head. "What got you smirking?" he asked not sure if he wanted to answer or not.
Lucius laughed as he knew he is right on point. "Considering me being daring to call you out noting I might not know what you are," Lucius said being blunt about the other's species but made sure it was only him and Ash. "You sure know how to pick your people to be attractive. I am not sure I am someone you want to mess with along with want to deal with. Being hot is something I've been knowing so tell me something I don't know." Lucius said with a wink.
"Everything is fine," he said clearing his throat. Lucius sighed knowing it would be his luck something would happen to Ash. "Wat fun do you mean?" Lucius asked not sure what the modern words are used these days. Looking at the other with his brown hues once again as he sighed. "A Pretty face like yours. It would not come into my mind you have anyone to call yours. That is something I can never relate to anyone. I never fell in love or been in that type of relationship." Lucius said that straightforward like it's something to layout easily. He didn't care if anyone questions him like why not Lucius will not have a problem to say he didn't think they were worth the time.
The other smirked her the other knew what the star would say. "Oh really then we might be needing more drinks to get thought the whole story then. I don't promise it will bore you am not that exciting." Lucius said knowing he will have the retell this story leaving out he is supernatural and then that will be another topic he does not want to get through tonight. "if I do this then you have to do the same also a deal?" Lucius asked being serious he hated talking about himself without someone us being ego about themselves. It was no much for the star.
"Caring is a dangerous word if that happens then the world is ending," Lucius said getting into the car and put his seat belt on. "What your seeing is the side I bring to the courtroom. When you fighting for the right cause toy have to stand tall and not give a care what will lead you into. I know am always right and is never proven wrong like ever. I am a force to be weakened with. You sound like your confidence in what you like and I like that." Lucius sighed as they pulled down not sure how he will continue these days but he knew he is very close to being a lawyer again so he is forced to move on. Another goodbye Lucius could not help to protect. Another failer on his part to be a better person.
As the other spoke up and feeling the other's hand on his upper thigh a new feeling when up how spine as he didn't know what is this feeling. He looked over at Ash as he let the other feel his leg, Lucius didn't know why the other is doing what he is doing but he kinda likes it. He stayed quiet thinking within this mind thinking about what is really going on with them and what the other is doing may be the flirt really did work on his and Lucius didn't want to admit it. The star could not let himself or let the other get involved hearing the other talk about his loss didn't make Lucius feel any better. Lucius got out of his mind went the other male opened the door for him as he stepped out and followed the male. "I can get the feeling way," Lucius said back as he looked around not looking at other people who were inside.
Ash enjoyed being able to read people, which had been something he used to be pretty good at. Even still, but he couldn't read the male beside of him. And the unknown, was one of Ash's biggest fears. The human arched a brow in his direction when he sighed, trying to pick up on what it was he was even sighing about, to no avail. Ash smirked at just how innocent Lucius seemed, while he also had a flare to him that Ash had witnessed the moment Luc approached him. "Well, I don't know. I could think of a few things better than what I wanna tell you" he chuckled, before flashing Lucius a playful wink. Lucius didn't come off as a male who had been through series of dating partners, in fact, Ash couldn't help but wonder if Lucius had ever even dated anyone.
Ash nodded in agreement when he finally admitted he could use a drink. "I figured. I wasn't trying to make light of you losing someone you cared for back there either, I just know its harder if you let it cripple you like most people do.. like I did in my past" he expressed, dropping his head and grimacing at the ground. Ash seemingly dropped a line or two about his past every time he spoke to someone, which likely meant he was still crippled by his own series of traumatic events, therefor, he wasn't in any position to judge. The human smirked, "Well consider yourself corrected then. I am a good person, when I allow someone in. I'm probably the most loyal guy out there when it comes to romantic partners, and though ive had more than I can count, I know how to love someone" he admitted, giving Lucius a longing look for a moment.
Ash nodded, giving him a faint smile when he said he was chill. Ash quirked a brow, enjoying how blunt Lucius's questions seemed to roll of his tongue. "What's got me smirking? Well, a number of things actually. But mostly, you in general. I like what I see, and so far I like what I know about you" he admitted, being just as blunt as the other, except on a more deeper, personal level. Ash sat back with his hands placed behind his head, finding comfort as he leaned against the chair, giving the other a side glance "Look at that ego, I think it's swelling by the seconds" Ash joked, grinning from ear to ear. But he loved a man who could keep up with him. A man who'd put him in check when he needed to be, and someone who wasn't afraid to give Ash a dose of his own medicine. Lucius seemed to be mr perfect from Ash's point of view. Maybe tonight would be the best night to happen to Ash Dunford.
"As for you calling me out on what I am, that only confirms you're not human at all huh?" he asked, but already knew the answer. "So what are you then?"" Ash then questioned him curiously. Ash wasn't sure it was okay of him to ask something that blunt, nor did he know if he'd even get an answer, but it was worth a try. Besides, it seemed that the more they spoke, the more personal they got with one another.. exchanging one question after another, which had led Ash down this path of curiosity.
Ash chuckled when Lucius asked him what kind of fun it was that he had in mind "Are you sure you're ready for that answer? It might blow your mind just hearing what I have in mind" he added, a sly smirk adorning the human's features. Ash didn't see Lucius as a man who would allow someone to treat him like a one night stand, but in all honesty, Ash had already seen him for something more than that. But, it had been a while, and Ash wouldn't have minded getting tangled up in the sheets with Lucius. Ash's face turned a bright red as those thoughts flustered him a little, and on top of that Lucius made him blush a little when he said 'with a pretty face like yours'., Damn it. Ash wasn't the type to blush. But, here he sat. He guessed there was a first for everything.
It was as he then admitted something Ash already knew deep down, but still, Ash's eyes widened and his mouth dropped a little. "So, you've really never been in love before?' he questioned, frowning some. Ash hadn't either, but he had experienced what it was like for someone to love him instead. "What about relationships? you haven't been in any at all, or what?" he asked then, and shook his head, a little taken back by this revelation. "Well, you should try it. If it's with the right person, your whole world will change. I imagine it to be a happiness you can't find with anything else in life" he expressed before continuing "I haven't really been in love either, mostly because i just haven't found the right one... but things might be loking up after all"
Ash nodded happily. "Ill buy us all the booze we can handle. And deal, a you show me yours, I show you mine type of deal" he smikred, being the king of innuendo's at all the right times it seemed, when he necessarily meant, that he would tell Lucius his story, after he shared his own. It was only fair. Ash looked out the window, sighing a little "Caring can become dangerous if you let it spiral out of control. I think caring about someone so much that you forget to care about yourself is when its dangerous. "Well what i'm seeing is something I really like Lucius. You're winning me over and you're probably not even trying to, thats a little scary" he chuckled, but the statement was serious. Ash was afraid to fall in love out of fear he might get his heart broken, or passed along the first time his partner found someone more sane, and stable than Ash is.
"Im glad you like that, but im even more glad you noticed that i'm confident with what I want" he added, using his hand to make a small gesture towards Lucius himself, as if he was referring to Lucius being what he wanted. The drive over had been a much longer one than it actually took, because of Ash's boldness and how Lucius reacted to his hand moving up his leg, gripping gently at his thigh. He could see how much ot worked Lucius up though, and tthat was all he needed to know the other male was indeed into him just as much as Ash was into Lucius. Lucius however, was a harder person to get to, and Ash knew he wasn't going to admit how he felt anytime soon, so for now, Ash would enjoy this little game between them. Seeing who breaks who first.. not literally, but in a sense that would have each other tangled up in a bed, without a care in the world. He knew walking a line meant to fight temptation, but he didn't have that issue at all. Ash was already ready to give into that, it was Lucius he would wait for.. and no matter how long it took, he'd still be here waiting.
Ash and Lucius had finally gotten inside the bar, where crowds of different cliques littered the seats and dance floor both, including the couple of people sitting near him and Ash. The people had began to whisper, point, stare, and laugh like teenagers. And while Ash knew they were drunk, he still wasn't having it. "Excuse you?! Don't you idiots have anything better to do? Have you not ever seen to males together? I mean we can put on a show for you, take a picture, and youll have something to look at for a life time!" he scolded them, sighing as he turned back to Lucius. "We will end up getting kicked out because of my temper. But I despise people who judge gay people. I've been gay for as long as I can remmber, and every time someone stares, points, whispers and laughs at me like that.. I just kind of lose it" the human admitted, and grabbed his drink as the bartender began sliding him and Lucius shots of whatever they were having back to back
Due to his status of being only a human, Ash knew he couldn't keep chugging the way he was, or he'd soon be passed out, and Lucius would have to carry him home, or leave him stranded. Plus, he wouldn't dare pass out on Lucius after confessing that he wanted him. That definitely wasn't a good first impression. Ash got a bit squirmy when the beat of a catchy song came on, unable tor restrain himself, "Show me how daring you are now" he smirked, and eyed the dance floor before looking back to Lucius, and standing to his feet. Ash danced in place, which was right up against Lucas as he tried to beckon him out to the dance floor, wanting to throw all his worries away for the night and just have fun with the other male.
Most people who meet the star can't read or know what he will do so it's was just Ash. it was how he betrayed himself in the courtroom which made Lucis so dangerous in making his case. No one could not take him down no matter what they do he was one step ahead. Lucius was innocent in the field of dating due to all this time he didn't waste his time looking into something that might be too distracting. Ash is the very thing Lucius tries to stay away from. His good looks and charming smile looks like the other wants to try to win him over. Tonight might be more than busy for the star.
The star looked at him when Ash said light he knew what the other meant and lightly nodded this head to the side with a smile. "Things can be the worst. I really do mean that if you know my past you will agree with me." Lucius said knowing he was talking about him locked away for many years and realized two years ago. It was like his own prison that made him change for the better or else he wanted to think so. "Sounds like a story to tell me later on," Lucius said wondering what the other's past was like.
When Ash talked about himself being a good person as how many relationships he had. Looking at the other back to Ash looking at him Lucius knew what the other is doing, which made him wonder what did he do to have the other be interested in him. "Sounds like you have a history but sounds like it's not your fault or what?" the star asked not minding the other looking at him.
Just right on time for his question to be answered. "You like the way I look? Not the first time for me to hear that."Lucius knew he was good looking, as well as many girls were looking at both of them. He and Ash both have looks that might kill girls' hearts but that is something Lucius will never want to touch on, well that will be a lie as one girl came super close but was killed. "What can I say. Have you looks at me? of course you have bee watching me." Mr. Perfect is far from what the star was. Lucius knew how the world works and the many years he knows and his experiences.
"You have a sharp tongue don't you?" Lucius said looking at the other. "Even if I was what is it to you? Who I am is dangerous one word and if someone in here is looking for someone like me we could have a problem." Ok, maybe Lucius should've phrased it batter then having the other think he was a criminal. It was true as a Celestial one word and a hunter is looking for one of his kind he will be in trouble for sure. Ophelia told him what he needed to know about the hunters, which is why he vowed to ever use his powers but normal things to fight with. He wanted to act as Human-like as much Lucius can get. "With you asking me about who I tell me you are scared of the supernatural," Lucius said turning it around without knowing about the other's past.
Lucius listened to the other thinking Ash is an alright man. They look like two people who will never have a dull moment with each other. In a way made Lucius starts to look at the other. "By the way you are talking sounds like someone wants to get frisky and wild or am I wrong?" Lucius asked looking at the other in the eyes, his lawyer nature comes to the surface as a smirk came to his lips. Lucius can play the same game as being blunt.
"Never one anything. I was a busy guy in the courtroom, no one stood out to me. Got many looked at me but no one stood out. Not sure if they want someone like me. I am hard to handle. ' he admitted as Ashe talked about the right one everything will change Lucius looked at the other unsure if Ash could handle someone like him. This was not all of them for the male to see.
Beer and stories sound like a fair deal. "Alright fine, you're going to need it in order for you to understand my past," Lucius said wondering if the other will actually remember everything he will tell. When ash told Lucius he liked him and is sold the star didn't know what to say or do, this can be dangerous even for Ash. "I do say if I am, just to make you more scared am not trying. I do come with a warning. One person tries to get into my life they die, people who are around me dies. death is all around me. I am hard to handle and comes with a price. Are you up for that." Lucius said being a truthful look at the male that died. he was just bad luck.
The others knew how to get under his skin without even trying. Looks like they both scare each other. Lucius just does not sure no matter how he will look at the matter it was the other he knew will not give up or not stop coming around. It looks like a new territory he is not used to. Walking into the bar Lucis never really talked about his sexuality due to it was not important enough. It was not like how it was today, everyone had something to say. He was shocked about Ash's temper but he understood. "People like that are idiots and choose not to get into drinking at all." He said trying to calm Ash down.
After drink a while, Lucius knew he needs to loosen up and drink. After a while, he got to the point he felt fine which made Lucius happy. This is part of the only time people will see a smile from the other. The star was not one to dance but he got up and started to dance with the human.
"Well, it seems like tonight's your lucky night. I have all the time in the world to listen" he stated, and flashed a smirk in the male's direction, finding himself all too intrigued by this man. Ash had also been someone to never look into a situation that might cause him distraction. But, Lucius was a different case entirely, and he couldn't help but admit that he felt a huge pull towards the man he barely knew. Ash was afraid to love someone, due to assuming they'd be taken away from him just as fast. But, if he was meant to fall, he at least hoped he wouldn't fall on his face.
"Ill tell you anything your heart desires" he grinned, and bit his lower lip as he tries his best not to visibly sit here and check the other out. But, he was gorgeous. A person would be a complete idiot not to see that. When Lucius responded by saying it sounded like Ash had a past, but that it wasn't all his fault, the human nodded his head gently and shrugged a little. "I have to hhold myself responsible for the things that are my fault, and truthfully, I'm not a good guy Luc" he started out with honesty, because if Lucius decided to stick by his side after this, then he was damn sure a keeper. "My biological parents are right here in this city in prison. Ive not been to see them yet, but anyways.. when my mother gave birth to me, she dropped me off on a ship full of stolen goods that she had hoped to sail aay with me on and start fresh. The cops got to her before she could get on the ship, and she had already hid me on it. So, I sailed away, as an infant, all alone, and nearly froze to death. That was until this Therian man found me. He took me into raise, and his pack helped raise me. They raised me to know violence, war between Therian's and Vampires, drug dealing, stealing, selling women like they're property.. and some of those habits have stuck with me to this day.." he cleared his throat, and held eye contact with the male the whole time he spoke.
"But, mostly it's just drug dealing now.. and it's something i'm not exactly proud of. Its just something I need to work on.. " he addded, and shrugged a little "So there's that" he expressed, chuckling, even though it ripped him in half to speak on these things. Ash smirked when Lucius said it hadn't been the first time someone said they liked the ay he looked. "Well yeah of course, I mean all eyes have been on either you or me tonight.. I don't find women unattractive, but ill never sleep with one" he gave a pointed look to the blondes sitting next to them, as though to shoo them away before narrowing his gaze back to Lucius.
Ash chuckled when Lucius asked 'have you looked at me'. Of course that brought a sly remark back from the human "Oh ive looked at you.. over and over again" he admitted, while rolling his tongue across his lips in a seductive manner. Because god, Lucius was actually a gorgeous man and it was killing Ash slowly but sure. Because any other time, he would have done been back in his apartment with the person and in his bed. But, something made him want to chat, and get to know this guy for more than just a one night stand. But, he didn't mind getting tangled up in his sheets with him either way. Ash arched a brow however, when Lucius responded the way he did, about who and what he was. It gave Ash some mixed signals for sure, but he could tell Lucius wasn't in the right perdicament to tell him what he as. Public and all. He understood that. "Fine, I'll drag it out of you later, slowly at that" he gave a challenging wink, his words having double meaning.
The human took another shot, and nearly choked on it when Lucius turned his words back around on Ash, nailing it to a T with what he said. Ash grimacced but decided it was best he be honest with him about it no, rather than later when it could cause issues between them "With a few reasons, yes. I was raised by them, so you wouldn't imagine i'd be afraid of them, and hate them to an obsessive point" he admitted bluntly. But, it's not like Lucius wouldn't see the news paper clippings, internet articles, and photos plastered all over his apartment walls if they went back there tonight.
Lucius's blunt question got Ash a little flustered, feeling heat rise to his cheeks as he blushed a little, which was something he never really did. "I can't say that you're wrong" he chuckled, and shook his head, bitting his lower lip a little. He liked this more than he should. But Lucius was a challenging man, and that's what Ash needed. Lucius was like coming up for air after suffocating through most of his life. A breath of fresh air. Even when Lucius warned him, that he was a hard man to handle, Ash wanted him. Nothing would sway him, but he could tell just from how Lucius carried himself, that he as indeed hard to handle. "I like playing with fire Lucius, especially if it's a slow burn"Ash was blunt with his own words, and it had become a thing between them. The blunter ones comments got, the more blunt the other person was.
Ash listened to him intently, and while his warning did have an effect on Ash, even giving him chills on his flesh, he couldn't help but want him that much more. "I'll show you.. I mean it's unfortunate that you've been through so much.. but I will try my best not to die on you.. other than that, i'm ready.. " he stepped closer to the male, and stuck his fingers through the belt loops of Lucius's pants, pulling him into himself, and breathing a little heavier before being bold enough to tip his head forward and brush his lips against Lucius's neck. "I think the price you come with, will be worth paying" he grinned, allowing his hands to roam a little further down, especially as they grinded on the dance floor. "This night has been full of surprises, but I have an even bigger one if you come with me" the innuendo in that comment was pretty heavy, even for a man like Ash.
After tugging at Lucius a little, he had finally gotten the gorgeous man to agree to go back to his apartment. And, the drive over was pretty tortureous he'd admit. Sitting in the back of that cab, dying to snatch his clothes off right then, caused some issues for Ash.. issues he had finally succumb to when they stepped into Ash's apartment. It was only after turning some music on to drown out the noise, to avoid his neighbors from hearing what was about to go down, that Ash turned his attention back to Lucius, with a look of starvation on his features. "Now, show me how hard to handle you really are" he stated, peeling his shirt off before kissing along the male's neck, dropping his kisses a little lower, covering his chest and stomach with a trail of burning kisses, squeezing his hips a little.
Within the next few moments, they had managed to squirm out of their clothes, Ash's self control out the window as a fire began to rage in the pit of his stomach.
