Kersen.

Coby was not at home, nor was Fin. So Anael simply walked through the streets of London, wondering whether he ought to visit anyone in particular, when he noticed the sign of the bar a little way off. It had been some time, he figured, since he had last seen Kersen, and he smiled at the thought of doing so now.

He did his best to look even more unassuming than usual when he walked into the bar; the fewer of Kersen's clientele he drove away by simply being there, the better. He could not spot the vampire anywhere, and so he walked up to the bar and asked the bartender, a mortal woman he had seen before, whether Kersen was around.

"You're a friend of his, aren't you?" she asked, eyeing him with a slight frown for a second. Concerned affection poured off of her in waves. "He's back in his office," she finally told him. "He could probably use a friend."

"Thank you," Anael told her honestly, her concern catching as he slipped into the back, and went to knock gently on Kersen's office door. "Kersen? It's Anael."

Thirty seconds or so passed, and then the door opened, with Kersen behind it. He was dressed simply, without a stitch of makeup or glitter on him. And he'd clearly been drinking.

"Anael." He sounded a little surprised. "What are you doing here?" But he did open the door wider for him.

Kersen closed the door behind him again. "Just... for no reason?" he asked. Though as soon as he said it he realized that of the few people who knew what had happened to him, they weren't likely to know Anael. It was all just coincidence.

"Well, it's good to see you," he said. "Would you like a drink?"

"It has," Kersen said. "It's good to see you."

And it was, actually, he realized. He'd been feeling so numb lately, but there was always something comforting about Anael's presence. Something warm. He suddenly wanted him to never leave.

He walked back over to the small bar on the other side of his office and picked up an already open bottle, pouring some into a clean glass, and then into his empty one. He handed the new one to Anael.

Kersen tensed a little at the touch. Automatic reaction. But then he just hesitated. "I - it will only upset you, Anael."

"To talk about it?" Kersen knocked back some of the drink and then sank into one of the chairs in front of his desk. "I don't know, do you have some magic that could just make me forget?"

Kersen looked down at his hands for a long moment, and then stood again and turned so that his back was to Anael. He lifted his shirt, to reveal the burn scar on his back in the shape of a crucifix. "You can't even do anything about this?"

The burn wasn't because it was a crucifix (if holy objects burned him, he imagined he wouldn't be able to touch Anael), but because it was silver. But sometimes vampires had a sense of irony.

There was something about Anael's voice. His presence. Kersen damn near burst into tears.

"Oh... it's already worse," he managed, and turned to show the angel the words carved into his chest, now pink scars.

Kersen swallowed hard. Seeing the tears in Anael's eyes was making not crying himself really difficult.

"It's - okay," he managed. "It will heal anyway. A few more weeks and it'll be like... like it never happened."

Kersen hesitated, and then slid his hand into Anael's, his shirt slipping back down.

Another shaky breath. "You're making me feel," he said softly. "It's easier to be numb."

"Are you sure you can't do anything?" Kersen asked, looking at him imploringly. But then - "I'm sorry. That's not fair. I just - I don't know how to stop thinking about it. If I'm not numb then I'm angry and if I'm not angry then I feel like crying. It's ridiculous, I need to just get over it."

"So far I've mostly been drinking and having revenge fantasies," Kersen muttered, and sank back down into the chair.

"Most of them are dead now anyway," Kersen murmured, as if he were reassuring him.

He would have made it slower, though. More painful. He would've used silver.

"Vampires," Kersen said, the word leaving him in a breath. "Apparently I've made some enemies lately. Defending humans. It's bad enough I let human men fuck me, but I'll keep vampires from treating them like cattle, guess I don't know my own kind, or something..."
