The Trio and Their Mascot

Post by Cedahlia on Thu Apr 13, 2017 3:17 pm

The Manticore

Alex was sat at his usual table with his feet propped up and a book on his lap. "Angel" played in his ear as he slowly turned the pages of the book. His usual drink of cucumber and mint sat barely touched on the table by his feet.

The door opened. He looked up briefly to see Strife walk in, no doubt followed by the rest of his group. They were returning from a mission.

Jester and Wolf did indeed follow Strife. Jester was still full of energy. He always was after a mission. He bounced over to the bar and got drinks.

Wolf went straight over to Alex and slipped his arm around his shoulder. "Are you going to give in to my charm yet?"

Strife watched Wolf immediately head for Alex and went with Jes to the bar instead for drinks. As much as it amused him to watch Alex turn Wolf repeatedly down, they'd worked really hard on that last mission and he could definitely use a drink. "How long do you think it'll take this time?" he asked Jes.

"Straight to it today, hm?" Alex asked as he looked up at Wolf. He then looked sideways to the arm around his shoulder. It made him feel so small.

Jes laughed, "Wolf never gives up. We will have to listen to this all night." He said as their drinks were made. He knew everyone's favourite.

"I just got back from saving actual people. I don't feel like small talk, I want you to give in." Wolf said honestly, he scratched his face. He realise that Alex just sometimes didn't want to. "Look me in the eyes and tell me you aren't tempted. Tell me that you don't want me. At all."

Strife took his drink and just took a very long sip. "You'd think he'd given up by now." But Wolf was so stubborn. He wasn't going to give up. Eventually Alex was just going to have to give in.

But Alex was being just as stubborn as Wolf. He looked up at him. He opened his mouth but then nothing came out. He quickly looked down as his cheeks turned pink. He hated being human. It was so hard to hide emotions.

"Wolf doesn't know how to give up. It will kill him one day." Jes said and picked up the other three drinks. "I mean, I'd hate to cock block, but you know I've got too." He laughed and headed over.

"Alex, why do you deny me when you can't say you don't want to be with me? What is so terrifying about being happy with someone? With me? I just... I just had to stop a ghost from murdering a child. I need you. I want to come home to someone who wants to hold me and is happy to see me. I want that to be you, I won't give up. I'll never give up." Wolf said quietly, but the blush was so precious.

Strife laughed. "You don't have to but you just really want to." He picked up his drink and followed along. He kind of wanted to as well. Not that it wasn't already hard on Wolf with Alex.

Oh Wolf was so smooth. Alex couldn't handle it. He closed his eyes. He felt like he might burst. But then he exhaled. "All right," he said quietly. "I give in."

"I'm either saving Alex or being a brat." Jes said with a cackle as he slid into the seats by the table. "I got you another drink, Alex." He said putting his over and handed over.

Wolf grinned and kissed Alex on the cheek before sitting down. "Good!" He said, because he was so tired of begging. He pulled Alex against his side.

"Did you win?" Jes said and his mouth turned into a tiny 'o'. "No fucking way! Alex, you were doing so well!"

"I always win. Eventually."

"I'm sorry!" Alex said and covered his face to hide how red he was. Wolf had just worn him down over and over until finally he'd just had to give in. Persistence and determination paid off, it seems.

"No fucking way," Wolf said as he too sat down and stared at the very smug looking Wolf with Alex against his side. "Damn. Well whoever bet on that happening is going to be a very rich man tonight."

"Why are you sorry?" Jes laughed, he thought it was awesome. "Now we need to find a nice Hunter girl for Strife and it'll be good."

"And what of you?" Wolf asked, because he thought it wasn't really good until they could all go on group dates, obviously.

"Man, I got boyfriends and girlfriends in every city. No one wants me for keeps." Jes shrugged.

"Don't you start on me," Strife said with a surly growl to his voice. "I don't have time for all that crap." Not that he wasn't happy for Wolf.

Alex let his hands drop and said nothing. He focused on his drink. He has no idea what he was doing. But that was okay. He'd said yes. He wasn't taking it back.

"Oh come on, you're not getting any younger." Jes persisted, humans weren't built to be on their own. They just weren't.

"Alex, tell Strife Jes has a point." Wolf requested, with a laugh. "Or that he doesn't. But its not like we're going to live forever, right?"

"You're going to have to if you want to be with me," Alex said. He was not going through that heartbreak of keeping his lover mortal.

Strife didn't comment on that. They all knew that Alex wasn't human really. "You know it's damn near impossible to meet anyone with out lifestyle, let alone put in the time to date and shit."

"Well, me yes. But they can't." Wolf said, he would be sad about that. "I mean, I don't even know how to get that for me. Let alone for them too."

"I'll bang Mew, in her human form." Jes said with a shrug, "I'll blow her mind and she will grant us everything we desire."

"Which means Strife will have all the time in the world to date." Wolf said and gave Jes a high five. "Perfect. Get on that."

Alex made a face of disgust. "Don't talk about the All Mother like that," he said unhappily.

Strife got right on the chance to figure Alex out. "Is she your mother?" He asked casually.

"No," Alex said and took a long sip of his drink. "There is a god of eternal life. He can grant it to you. Otherwise you're looking at appealing to Arceus but he'll make you a fiend."

"But she's really, really sexy as a human..." Jes said, all kinds of disappointed that he was being told no so unfair.

"So, is Arceus your dad and is he likely to give me that? And if I was a fiend, I'd be one of those horrible looking... Wolf ones I forget the name." Wolf said, which was never really something he was good at.

"Yeah, but it evolves from something pure adorable. Which you aren't." Jes snorted.

Strife started laughing. "You're really aren't! I can see you as the ugly one though," he added with a grin.

"He is," Alex admitted. "I think he might be persuaded. Not for them though, I don't believe. And I have no idea what be would choose for you."

"You're just jealous that I was so into Alex." Wolf said and threw a napkin at Strife for being such a bitch. "I guess we go to the God of it. How do we contact him?"

"Wow, hang on. I don't even know if I want to live forever." Jes said seriously and he was never serious. But honestly, that was a big deal and he could tell that Wolf wanted to do it.

"Yeah, I really don't think this is the kind of decision we should make on the fly," Strife said when he too clued on that Wolf was being completely serious about it. He didn't reply to the jealousy comment. He wasn't sure what he was supposed to have been so jealous of.

Alex didn't provide the answer to that question. They had to figure out what they wanted first.

"You need to think about it? Like it's a hard choice to decide if you want to save people. Forever. Hopefully not get murdered brutally on the job? Or worse, become the thing we hunt?" Wolf said, because it was too easy for hunters to become monsters. Not fiends.

Monsters.

"You make a fair point," Jes said and tapped his lip thoughtfully. "But I still want to at least sleep on it."

"He does make a good point," Strife said. "Although the idea of spending eternity doing this is exhausting," he added. Hunting was hard, not just physically but emotionally too. He couldn't imagine spending the rest of forever doing it. But you couldn't just quit once you got into it either knowing that others would die.

"You really should sleep on it," Alex said. "I'll tell you how it can be done should you choose immortality."

"Someone isn't really in this for the right reasons," Wolf laughed, but he didn't comment otherwise. He just took a long drink of his beer and settled back in his chair, but he didn't let go of Alex.

"Do you already know what we are going to choose?" Jes asked Alex curiously, because that would be interesting.

"I don't know the future," Alex replied after a moment of thought. "But I know what's in your hearts and so I can make an educated guess what you will choose."

"Hey I'm in it for the right reasons," Strife protested. "I'm just not going to say it isn't hard. And it's definitely not normal." But he knew what normal was like. They didn't. Granted he didn't think he could go back to normal after all this time.

"Your educated guesses are nearly always right. But I don't know that you should tell me. Then I'll just have bias." Jes said, but honestly.... "Maybe being immortal would make it even harder for Strife to get a lover."

"Not normal by your standards." Wolf replied gruffly. He had grown up in his life and it wasn't anything terrible like a lot of hunters. "This is very normal to me. I couldn't live a boring life. Which is what your normality is to me. I just haven't said so, because it's rude. But as you want to point out how badly my late parents messed up by not giving me a 'normal' and boring childhood..."

"I didn't say shit about that and you know it," Strife said back just as harshly.

"Keep it in your pants please," Alex said. He didn't want them to butt heads and be all testosterone at each other.
