I don't even know

Post by Malakai on Tue Aug 05, 2014 1:03 am

Slade tugged on Ash's arm as he lead him down the busy street. The sun was up high and it was hurting Slade's eyes, causing him to squint, but he was eager to get to his destination. The day was altogether a nice day, with a slight breeze. The kind of days that used to be Slade's favourite. Releasing Ash's arm, he turned around and grinned at his twin.
"Aren't you excited to be getting your first tattoo?" he asked, despite sensing Ash's anxiety. He turned back around, hardly even giving Ash the time to answer, and continued heading down the street. Outside the tattoo shop, he noticed a short guy with light blue hair; the boy looked to be fairly young and he smelt delicious. He seemed interested in some of the art out front the tattoo shop, but he was just standing there, rocking on his feet. Slade licked his lips, his eyes lingering for a moment too long to just be a glance. Something about the boy pulled him in and Slade had never smelt his type before. Furthermore, the boy was dressed in what seemed way too done up to just be casual dress. It showed a lot of boy's porcelain skin, it would be so easy to pin him down and sink his fangs in... Just as Slade's mouth began to water, he opened the door and went inside, hoping Ash would follow. It would be dangerous to do anything in broad daylight.
The tattoo shop felt nice to Slade, but the scent told him right away that the strongest scent wasn't a humans. Once again, a scent Slade couldn't place. Still, he smiled brightly at the owner, who looked to be pretty young. But the place was well spoken of, and Slade was trusting of that.
"Hi!" he said with a bright smile. "Me and my brother were looking to get some tattoos... We didn't make an appointment, but if you can't take us now maybe we can schedule one?"


Ash squinted in the sun and remained outside for an extra moment to stare at the boy his twin had just been staring at. Ash never liked bright days like this, but the scent coming from the faerie boy almost made it worth it. Almost made it worth Slade dragging him halfway across the city to get a tattoo he wasn't even completely sure he wanted. Once again, Slade talked him into something Ash knew full well he might regret. But the delicious scent of the faeries blood and the hope of tracking him down later could make it be a nice day out.
Shaking his head to clear it, Ash followed Slade into the tattoo shop just as Slade finished speaking. He glanced over what he assumed to be the shop owner and bit his tongue to refrain from saying anything, then moved to look around the store, inspecting it closely. He glanced out the window to look at the boy, watching him walk across the street to look into another window, then watched him go into the sweets store. Managing to tear his eyes away, Ash looked once again to Gabryjel and offered a small smile.

Today was a rather slow day. One women had come in earlier to have her half sleeved finished up. Aiden had been the one working on it so well... Gabryjel hadn't been doing much all day other than crunching numbers and sketching out some random pictures. He had a client for his freelance business that needed some art to get done but he didn't feel like it. Photoshop and Illustrator weren't nearly as fun as drawing by hand. That was one reason why he had picked up tattoo art as a profession-- he absolutely loved art and working with people. Plus, it was cool to own his own business. He employed about 15 different artists and piercing specialists but today it was just him and Aiden.

"Hei, tuolla on poika seisoo ulkona tarkastelemalla joitakin oman taiteen," Aiden cheerfully said to Gabryjel and leaned over his back to hug him and kissed his cheek with a smile. "Ehkä hän päätyvät pääsyn sisälle."
(Hey, there is a kid standing outside looking at some of your art. Maybe he or she will end up coming inside.)
Gabryjel shrugged without even looking up and continued to scribble on the piece of paper in front of him. He wasn't planning on drawing anything on purpose but the picture was starting to end up as something really weird. It was like something he used to draw when he was new at art forever ago.
Once Ash and Slade began to stare at the kid, Aiden furrowed his eyebrows and let go of Gabryjel. There was no way those two were human with the way they were starting at the kid. At this point he was more than used to supernatural people because of Gabryjel's family and group of friends... but he still go really nervous around those he didn't know. If they ever caused any trouble he would be of no help to Gabryjel.

The moment the bell rung on the door Gabryjel perked up and smiled at the two who walked into the shop. Somehow they were vaguely familiar but there was no way Gabryjel would be able to figure out why.
"Hei," Gabryjel said and stood up. "We're actually not busy at all today. However, before we can do anything we'll have to see some ID's that you're at least 18. If you're not you'll need some parental permission." He had a bit of an accent while speaking, though it wasn't too noticeable due to all the people he hung around and how often he spoke English.

"Hyvää iltapäivää, and welcome," Aiden said as he straightened up, took a step back and smiled. Sometimes people would leave if they started to think him and Gabryjel were together. They were pretty open about being a gay couple, but they kept the relationship out of their professional lives for the most part.
Plus... he still wasn't sure what these people were. Gabryjel had a tendency to be a little too relaxed and trusting. He was positive he knew these two weren't human either, but he could never tell. Sometimes it flew over his head. Hell, a lot of the time he didn't even notice since they were used to blending in.

Slade smiled even more as he approached Gabryjel, keeping his fangs in check the best he could. It was still a bit of a hassle for him, but his canines usually just looked a bit sharper than the average persons to most people. Without a moment of hesitation he pulled out his wallet and grabbed his ID, then looked back to his twin.
"Ash, come on. Show him your ID," Slade nearly commanded. It was a tone that sounded a little annoyed but still light at the same time. While Slade was turned around to look at his brother, he chanced a glance back out the shop window, but he didn't see the boy there anymore. It was a shame, but Slade would soon forget it. Besides, Gabryjel smelt nearly as good. Slade turned back around to face Gabryjel and smiled brightly.
"We don't really have any plans on what we want yet, really... We were hoping you'd have a portfolio or something we could look at," Slade told Gabryjel, a little embarrassed at not having this better planned. Still, he was excited and almost positive he'd figure it out in a few minutes.

Ash on the other hand was hesitant. He'd noticed how Aiden had taken a step back and gave a faint, knowing smirk as he took out his wallet and set his ID beside his twins silently. He looked to Gabryjel, then Slade before he leaned against the counter. Once Slade was done speaking, he cut in.
"Just some... tribal marking... Or knot design..." Ash spoke softly, and if Slade really pushed he'd change his mind. He glanced at Slade again, honestly relieved that he was nodding in agreement. Ash looked back to Gabryjel and fidgeted, still unsure about the whole idea. His mind was still following the scent of the faerie. Sure, Gabryjel smelled pretty sweet as well, but to Ash, it seemed nothing could compare to what he just smelt. Trying to get his mind off his cravings for the faerie, he straightened back up and took a deep breath. The shop had a nice scent and Gabryjel and Aiden both had a pleasant scent; perhaps he could distract his mind.

------
Bo pouted as he looked over the candies in the candy store, then looked out the window to the tattoo shop. He'd wanted to go in, but he sensed that those two others would be trouble. He could wander the streets until they left, which is what he'd most likely end up doing unless the store closed or they were there until it got dark out. If it got dark Bo would go back home. The dark and him weren't especially friends and the few times he's been alone at night, he'd gotten himself into some trouble. Thankfully he wasn't dead yet.
Still, Bo cheered immediately as he stared at some of the candies he wanted. There was a man in there that seemed to be buying something for his girlfriend, but with a little bit of faerie charm, Bo had the mans attention. Without even lifting a finger or speaking a word, he got exactly what he wanted. The man was buying Bo his sweets, and Bo smiled brightly as he was handed a bag of goodies.
"Thank you~!" he said with a bright, boyish smile. With that he ran out of the sweets store and looked back to the tattoo shop. The artwork in the window was really pretty... But he would have to wait. Popping a sweet into his mouth, Bo walked to sit in a bench near the candy store, swinging his legs in the air.

People coming in with absolutely no clue as to what they wanted was fairly common, albeit annoying at times. Especially with the broad topic of tribal tattoos. Everyone and their brother wanted a tribal tattoo.
"Well," Gabryjel began and pulled out a binder from under the counter and plopped it in front of Ash and Slade. "Tribal tattoos are a very broad topic. They range from animals to bands and really anything you can think of."
He turned to a page with arm bands that didn't connect. "Sometimes they even mean things. For example, the tribal tattoo bands don't usually connect at the end because that's supposed to be bad luck. Then of course the animal ones encompass an even broader range of meaning, or people think they just look nice. It all narrows down to why the person wants a tattoo."
He turned to another page with Celtic knots. "The same applies for knots and what not. If you want you can look through this binder, and I have more. I drew a majority of the art you'll see in them."

"Don't feel pressured to get one today," Aiden said as he handed back their IDs. Ash was a common name and made him think of Pokemon. Slade on the other hand was really creative.
"Keep in mind that it'll be on your body forever. Well... there are removal methods but they're all costly and painful. So you should sit on whatever you decide for a little while. Your brother, Ash, also seems a little iffy about this whole ordeal."
Adien was soon mildly distracted once the kid appeared on the bench again. What could he possibly want? If he was just going to eat candy he may as well stay by the candy store.

"Thank you!" Slade said as he stared down at the binder. All the drawings looked really nice and he knew he would want to mull over them, but Ash looked away rather quickly. Slade sighed very softly, then lifted his head to look at Aiden before he smiled again.
"Ash will be fine! You can take a bit of pain, can't you, Ashy?" Slade asked, looking back to his twin.

"Sure," Ash smiled back, then glancing at Aiden. He hated to disappoint his brother. Finally he looked down to the knots, then flipped through the binder.
"I want... health. Protection. Immunity..." he muttered, almost to himself before glancing back up at the elf. Hopefully Gabryjel would have something for that. Though, now that he was a vampire he didn't really need to worry about his health, but protection was something he definitely wanted. Protection from hunters, protection from his dad's enemies, protection from his own enemies... He licked his lips while staring expectantly at Gabryjel. Now that his mind was clear of the faerie scent, Gabryjel seemed all that more appetizing.

Slade smiled brightly as his brothers suggestion.
"Everyone could use a bit of extra protection on their side," he grinned, then laughed as Ash nudged him, obviously slightly annoyed. Putting an arm around Ash's waist, Slade tilted his head. He really hoped Ash wouldn't chicken out at the last moment. Though they could sense each others feelings and emotions, Slade wanted as much connection to his twin as possible.
------
Bo had already made it about halfway through his bag of sweets. It wasn't a surprise to him since he had such a big sweet tooth, but he twisted up the top of the bag and forced it through his belt. Usually that was enough to keep the bag in place. After a few more moments he sighed from boredom, trying to keep himself entertained, but he really wanted to go back to the tattoo shop.
Bo glanced at the window, then smiled brightly and waved enthusiastically, barely catching Aiden's stare. He wasn't even completely sure if Aiden was looking at him or not. With that, Bo pushed off the bench and made his way back to the shop window to stare at the art again. Seeing the two others still in there made him wary of going inside himself, and he hesitated. Nonetheless, it didn't stop him from cupping his face to the window to look into the shop. He was fascinated by the art, and he almost wanted to get a tattoo just so he could keep a piece of the art around him at all times.

Adrian eyed Ash as he licked his lips and eyed Gabryjel. These guys had to be demons or vampires. Either way, it made him extremely uncomfortable. That could explain why the blue haired kid wasn't coming inside.
With a somewhat reserved manor he waved back at Bo but quickly turned his eyes back over to Ash and Slade. Protection... the tattoos would only be symbolic and wouldn't actually help them out any.

"Well, if you guys would like those knots you'll need to decide where you want them. The chest, several different spots on the arm, the ankle and shoulder blades are popular," Gabryjel said as he looked up just when Ash licked his lips and was starting at him awfully intently.
Hopefully these two weren't thinking about eating him. He already knew that they weren't human but he hadn't been sure what they were exactly. Like Aiden, he figured they were demons or vampires. If they kept staring at him that way and seemed to get threatening he would contact Suru or Nyyrikki.

"Hmmm... What do you think Ash? Shoulder blades?" Slade asked his brother, a musical lilt in his voice.
"Or maybe somewhere on the arm?" he suggested, trying to appease his bored-looking twin. It was a hassle to do so, mostly because Ash never seemed impressed. With anything.
"I think shoulder blades would be a good spot!" Slade said, turning back to Gabryjel. The scent was starting to get to him, especially now that his head was cleared of Bo's. Still, he could manage a bit longer. If he got his tattoo first, then the pain would take his mind off of it, but it would leave Ash to be alone with Aiden. Slade looked to his twin, who was turned around again and staring out the window. Slade followed his gaze, then quickly turned around. That damn kid... Go away! Slade thought while smiling at Gabryjel.
"I'll go first!"

Ash just shrugged at both of Slade's suggestions, then nodded while staring at Bo.
"Shoulder blades work..." he mumbled, only half-heartedly. He knew that these two were suspecting something, and he wanted to get out of there quick. Before something happened. Like Slade attacking either Gabryjel or Aiden. He could feel that Slade was starting to get a craving for Gabryjel, and it was affecting him a little. Ash was positive he could hold off though. Especially with the faerie right outside the window. The scent of him from outside was faint, and enough to resist, but also enough to keep him distracted from Gabryjel. Slade on the other hand, would be oblivious to such a weak scent. He always missed the small details.
When Slade said he wanted to go first, Ash pushed away from the counter to sit on one of the chairs and wait.
"Have fun," Ash told him, little emotion in his voice. He did manage a small smile as he turned to Aiden.
"Is there any chance I could get some water?"

Gabryjel sighed a little at Slade's eagerness. He was obviously only half listening. They supposedly wanted three tattoos. But, the three tattoos could go in different places, have different sizes, they could choose to color them and well... a lot of it was looking like it was going to end up being Gabryjel's choice. When people were like that they either loved it or they hated it. So, he preferred to draw something out for them to see before he put it on their body. That was a good way to prevent angry ass holes later down in the path. Plus... these two were a little cheeky so avoiding any possible conflict was the best idea.
Gabryjel cleared his throat as he eyed the blue haired kid for a moment, and returned his eyes back to Slade. "Well... if you want it on your shoulder blade, your brother said he wanted three different knots. Health, protection and immunity. So, I can do a lot of different things with that. If you would like to wait a little longer I can sketch out some stuff for you guys, or I can just do whatever I think would look best. However, sometimes people aren't happy with what I think looks nice, so this is really up to you. It'll be going on your body."

"Uh, we don't have any glasses here. There's a few stores down the road though, if you could buy some at for cheap. The only thing is, like here, you'll need euro's. You guy's don't really sound like you're around here. Speaking English was the first sign," Aiden said as he cleared his throat. The way Ash and Slade had been looking at the blue haired kid beforethey came in was mirroring how they had been looking at Gabryjel, and once again the blue haired kid. It was eerie.
Since it was getting around 16:30 it was nearing his lunch break, but he really didn't want to leave Gabryjel here alone with two possible demons or vampires. He also didn't want Gabryjel to be alone in the back with Slade, nor did he want to be alone in the front with Ash. Ash seemed a lot tamer than Slade but that really didn't mean anything.

((I was looking through who I have, and other than Lucifer I can't think of anyone who might show up that is in Finland. He also wouldn't be an antagonist/much of a problem sooooooo still up to you on what to do with that. I'm considering starting to develop someone off of the storyline Gabryjel, who is an elf, but even then it wouldn't really help out a whole lot.))

Slade huffed silently, then pulled back and furrowed his brow in thought.
"I think... protection would be the most important. So just the one then, ok?" he asked with a smile. He didn't want to make a fuss for Gabryjel, and he's probably already made him and Aiden feel awkward. Glancing back at Ash, he spoke almost to himself.
"Yeah. Just protection is fine." Then he cleared his throat before he turned to look back at Gabryjel and Aiden with a bright smile.
"Do you guys like parties? You look like you might," Slade motioned to Aiden, giving off a friendly smile.
"There's one happening tonight, and... I'm sure we've creeped you out a bit. But I can assure you, it's a hu- I mean, not everyone going is weird like us." Slade finished off. He nearly said 'human' party. Even though he was nearly sure that both Gabryjel and Aiden knew he wasn't human, it was better to be safe than sorry.
"Ash, wanna invite these two to the party?"


Ash sighed softly and leaned back. He definitely didn't want to leave the store just for some water, and he could hold off. Besides, he didn't really want to chance walking by that kid again. He closed his eyes, going still until he heard Slade say his name. Upon hearing the question, he merely shrugged. He didn't really care. Personally, he'd probably just find a quiet area where he could keep an eye on his twin, but not get involved unless necessary.
Assuming his twin would be off to get his tattoo done soon, Ash just enjoyed the scents hanging in the air. It reminded him a little of his first, and last, Thanksgiving dinner. All those smells hanging in the air, but unable to touch until everyone was ready. Ash noticed his mouth was watering and swallowed his saliva before he licked his lips.
"Invite them... When do you guys close? We can return another day." Ash suggested, knowing his twin was going to protest. But if they couldn't both get done in the day, then it would be easy to get Slade to co-operate.


Bo smiled brightly and walked into the tattoo shop, perking instantly at the mention of a party. He knew he probably wouldn't get invited, but the idea still appealed to him. He bounced right up to the counter and jumped at it, stopping himself only instants before he made contact, remembering it was rude. Seeing Gabryjel in consultation with Slade made Bo back off, and he took a seat as far as he could from Ash. He assumed these two were dangerous, but Gabryjel and Aiden didn't seem dangerous. It was also broad daylight, so even though the atmosphere in the room grew dense, Bo managed a bright smile. It slowly faded when he noticed Ash staring right at him.
"What is it? Is there something on my face?"

Re: I don't even know

The moment Slade asked about going to a party, Gabryjel and Aiden looked at one another. For anyone who knew Gabryjel well enough, he clearly had a "I do not want to go to this party" look on, while Aiden had a "we should go even though these two are pretty odd" look in his eyes. Aiden absolutely loved parties and meeting new people, while Gabryjel wasn't quite as fond of the parties. It was nice to people watch, but he hated that Aiden did some softer drugs, mostly marijuana, MDMA or other psychedelic drugs. To be quite frank, it really got on his nerves and terrified him when Aiden mixed it up with alcohol. It was a horrible mix.

"I think we should go because--" Aiden started only to get Gabryjel's hand over his mouth.
"I don't think so. I don't want to. You're stupid with parties," Gabryjel retorted.
"I'll be good, I promise," Aiden responded with a flirtatious smirk and took Gabryjel's hand off his mouth, then turned to Slade. "I suppose we will be going since it is a 'human' party."

Gabryjel frowned at Aiden and sighed heavily and pinched the bridge of his nose. "Anyway, we close at four today. It's almost three and it's a Saturday. We aren't open tomorrow but we're open 9:00 to 20:00 Monday through Friday. There are other artists that work here as well, though obviously it's just Aiden and I today."

Aiden turned his attention to Bo once he walked in. The way Ash was staring at Bo was the same look they had when they walked in, and yet again the same way they had been staring at Gabryjel. Perhaps this guy was an elf, or at least half like Gabryjel, as well? There was really no way for him to know, but it was more than clear that Ash and Slade had looked at both Gabryjel and this new kid as a snack for at least a few moments. Apparently vampires or demons liked non-human things better than humans. He couldn't complain about that since he was human, but his boyfriend wasn't and he didn't particularly want him to get eaten. If they really did like non-human beings more, it would make sense because there was certainly a lot more humans than there were elves, fae, vampires, and shapeshifters in the grand scheme of things. He didn't even know what he should say to Bo. He wanted to say to "be careful" but that would be rude to Ash and Slade in the event they were just really creepy humans.

In an attempt to distract Ash and Slade, Gabryjel began to speak. "The knots aren't too hard, I could do the both of you before we close. I've done them plenty of times. Last question, I swear. Would you want it on your left or right shoulder blade? You two seem pretty close so maybe one of you have it on the left, the other on the right? It's up to you two."
"Hello, and no you look fine," Gabryjel added onto his question for Ash and Slade. "Hello. Do you need anything?"

Slade grinned again, trying his hardest to keep his focus off Bo. It pleased him that Aiden wanted to go, even if Gabryjel didn't think it was the best idea. Once he realized Aiden had picked up on what he meant though, he quickly pulled away from the counter. Since he could smell that Gabryjel wasn't human, he figured Gabryjel would know. The blue-haired kid might as well, so he offered a small smile.
"Ah, sorry! We probably scared you then. We don't plan on hurting you or anyone... You just smell really good," Slade told them both, in a slightly flirtatious tone.
"Anyways, I like the idea of one on the left and one on the right a lot. What about you, Ash?"

Ash scowled and looked to Slade, narrowing his eyes. He didn't really like Slade flirting with strangers. Is he seriously thinking about trying to be friends with them?
Ash did have to admit it was a little annoying how often Slade made new friends. His only friend really was Slade, and all his past friends he'd lost through one way or another. And he couldn't just make new ones every where he went. His jealousy ran high when it came to his brother, and suddenly he just wanted to leave the tattoo shop. Since he felt the way he did, he just offered his twin a shrug. There wasn't much to say. A yes would make Slade happy, but a no would only lead to persuasion.


"Ok, good!" Bo smiled brightly at Gabryjel, then stood and walked over, a little bit behind the desk just so he felt a slight bit more safer.
"The art outfront the store is really pretty, and I was wondering if you only did tattoos here... I don't think I could ever get one, but I would love a piece of art to hang on my wall or something..." Bo looked at Gabryjel with an innocent, pleading look. The thought of a party drew his attention slightly, though he wasn't one for drugs or drinking. He just enjoyed the atmosphere and having fun.

"I used to live with two vampires, if that's what you two are, so I figured you guys might be some by the way you were looking at me," Gabryjel mumbled a little bit and scratched the back of his head. He wasn't too fond of Slade visibly flirting with Aiden. Aiden sometimes got a little too friendly. In fact, when he got drunk or high sometimes he would start to make out with people he was comfortable with and that really ground his gears. He knew that Aiden really did love him, but it didn't change the fact that he turned into a pig once his head wasn't all the way there.
He turned to Bo and tried to clear the thought of Aiden and Slade frenching, out of his head. "I do free lance work on the side, it's completely separate from this business. If you're interested in that I can give you a card and let you check out my website. I do a very wide variety of work. Price varies depending on size, labor and supply costs." He pulled open a drawer before handing Bo a card. "My names Gabryjel Zielinski and my friend here is Aiden Myllylä."
He was extremely tempted to add "and he's my boyfriend" but that would be unprofessional, so he held his tongue.

Aiden wasn't sure if he should take that as a compliment or not. Furthermore, these two had only been staring at Gabryjel and this newer kid. They barely even glanced at him, though Slade did appear to be flirting with him now. The only vampire's he knew were Ian, Suru, Lucifer and Nyyrikki. They were nothing like the vampires in books and movies but these two seemed far more likely to be that way. Seductive, always wanting to have sex, which Lucifer did fit into, and maybe eating their partner while fucking them. Not that he would be having sex with them... but he didn't have the best party track record.
"Uh... thanks?" Aiden finally said as he eyed Ash. He seemed to not want to do this whole party thing or like Ash flirting any more than Gabryjel did. They would probably get along, though Gabryjel was certainly more lively than that kid. He just seemed to be a shadow of his brother and nothing more, which was a real low way to live.

Gabryjel cleared his throat, and returned his attention to Slade. "Well, if you would like... I can take you in the back and we can start. Like I said, it won't take long." Ash still didn't look like he wanted a tattoo. He also didn't want Slade to try and persuade him to. Like Aiden, he was catching onto the fact Ash seemed to almost follow Slade blindly. To be quite frank, that annoyed Gabryjel quite a bit. Twins or not, Ash should be allowed to be his own person.

Slade nodded slightly at Gabryjel, then smiled brightly.
"Well, like I said, you both smell good and you're both pleasant on the eyes...." Slade mumbled, then stopped himself before he got too carried away. It had been a long time since he lost got laid, at least it felt long to him, and it didn't help that he was hungry. Still, he didn't want to make them feel too uneasy. Clearing his throat, he took a deep breath and nodded again.
"All right! Let's get this done then! Ash?" Slade turned to look at Ash, and was surprised when Ash had come up behind him.


"We'll come back Monday," Ash told them as calmly as he could. He was more angry at Slade than anyone else, but no one was spared a scowl from him. He knew his brother was flirty and got around, yet but he couldn't help being a little possessive over him. Ash liked to consider himself protective more than anything, but it was a little more than 'protecting'. Growing up, his brother was really all he had. When he lived with his dad he didn't get much independence even though Axel encouraged it. Now, with Axel and Ace divorcing, he was even more dependent on Slade.

Slade looked back at Ash, then shrugged at Gabryjel and Aiden.
"We'll come back TONIGHT to pick you guys up. I guess the tattoos have to wait..." Slade gave a long, drawn-out sigh just to show his disappointment with Ash, but Ash could care less. It took everything in Ash to not grab Slades arm and drag him out of the tattoo shop, and he decided he'd wait outside if Slade wanted to hang around. When Ash was out the door, Slade shrugged and looked at Bo before looking back to Gabryjel.
"Sorry about him. It's been a hard past while. Parents divorced and whatnot. He's sensitive to that. He liked Ace a lot," Slade shrugged again.
"Anyways, I'll be back later tonight!" Slade reminded them enthusiastically, then headed out the door to grab Ash's arm and lead him home.


Bo bit his lip as the scene unfolded before him and took a small step towards the wall. He tried to ignore it and kept his eyes on the card in front of him, but he listened to the entire conversation. When he learned that the boys parents had divorced, his heart went out to them, but then again, Bo didn't quite understand vampires felt emotions just as humans did. When both vampires had left the shop, Bo lifted his head and managed a small smile.
"I bet the party will be fun... Thank you for the card! I'll call or come visit again for sure! The art is sooooo pretty, I can't wait to have my own piece..." Bo mumbled, really just saying things while waiting for Ash and Slade to leave. His words were still sincere though, and he smiled brightly and the two tattoo artists.

"Uh, well we close at 17:00 so that isn't very late. Maybe some other time," Gabryjel protested with a small sigh. He really, really did not want to go. He didn't mind parties, but Aiden had a very addictive personality and was extremely bad at keeping himself under control once he was drunk, high, or god forbid, both.
"I look forward to seeing you two on Monday then," he continued. Hopefully they would actually come back. It was very obvious that Ash didn't want a tattoo while Slade really did. He didn't like the pressure Slade was putting on Ash at all.

"Naw, we could always wait here or go somewhere else and meet them there. Especially since we live in Hyvinkää, which is a good hour from Helsinki (which is where I am going to assume they're at), so maybe we could rent a hotel for the night or something," Aiden chimed in. "Plus in a few weeks we're going up to Sodankylä to see your family so why not go to a party while we're here?"
He could tell Gabryjel was ignoring him. "Call back around five! The number is on the door!" Aiden called after Slade as they left and hoped that he heard him.

Gabryjel groaned in protest and ignored Aiden as he continued to talk to Bo. "If there is anything specific you want, but you won't be in the country by the time I'm done, I do ship internationally. Most work doesn't take me too long, so it shouldn't be an issue for you."
In fact, he kind of hoped Bo knew what he wanted so that maybe he would be able to work on something for the rest of the day. He wasn't going to put his hopes up that he would get many more people day. The peak hours were almost over.

***All their conversation would be in Finnish

Around 17:30, Gabryjel turned to face Aiden as he locked up the shop. "No, we're going home. I don't want to rent a hotel out here. If you get drunk, high, or whatever, how am I supposed to know you won't cheat on me? Every single time you get drunk off your ass and you end up kissing some pretty gir or hot guy and completely forget about me."

Aiden frowned as crossed his arms. "Excuse me, that only happened once and I said I was sorry. You know that I love you, I was a swinger in the past, and you know that, but I stopped because I actually like you."
He didn't wait for Gabryjel to respond and pulled him into a hug and kissed the top of his head. "I promise I'll be good. Can we go, please?"

"I doubt they're even coming back, they didn't call and it's 17:30," Gabryjel grumbled and reluctantly hugged back. "I don't want to go, okay?"

"Then I'll just go," Aiden said as he let go of Gabryjel. "It's been a long time since I've been to a club or party. You could come with me. That means you can make sure I don't do anything stupid if I get drunk or high. A few drinks won't get me drunk."

"But a little bit of most drugs will get you high," he retorted. "Please, can we just go home? I doubt the party will even be starting for another few hours."

Aiden smiled and clasped his hands together. "Then we can show them around. I'm sure they don't know the area."

Gabryjel let out another exasperated sigh and pinched the bridge of his nose. "Fine, we'll go. If you cause any trouble, we are going to head back home, the apartment, whatever. Just don't do anything stupid, please. I don't want you to get hurt. What ever happened to you thinking those two were creepy anyway?"

Aiden hugged Gabryjel tight and sat down on the bench in front of the shop to wait for Ash and Slade. "Suru, Nyyrikki, Ian, Olavi, Lucifer, they're all vampires and they're fine. I mean we don't know those guys are vampires for sure, but if we have problems we could always call up one of them."

Ash had been picking up on Aiden and Gabryjels conversation long before he turned the corner back to their shop. He could tell they were having a bit of a disagreement, but he sided mostly with Gabryjel on this one, aside from being called creepy. Drugs and drinking and parties got lots of people, Slade included, into trouble, so he preferred to avoid them. As Ash got closer, he smiled shyly and waved. Hardly a moment after Ash had reached the bench, Slade hopped off a roof of a nearby building with a shout. Ash turned to stare at him, glaring, but Slade was grinning ear-to-ear.
"Did I scare you?" Slade asked, to which Ash rolled his eyes. His brother never failed to make an entrance.
"Well, whatever," Slade shrugged, though he hoped to get their adrenaline going, just to see how Gabryjel smelt when his heart was pounding. He would have to find another way to do it, somehow.
"The party doesn't start until about eight o' clock, and me and Ash have already eaten... So we can do whatever until then. There must be something fun to keep us entertained for a few hours." Slade continued on, his eyes focused on the two. It was hardly a few moments before his curiosity got the better of him.
"What are you?" he asked Gabryjel. He knew Aiden was human, and exceptionally delicious smelling human, and though the scent coming from Gabryjel seemed to remind Slade of something, he wasn't entirely sure.
"You're not vampire or wolf, or shifter for that matter. He's obviously a human," Slade said while motioning to Aiden.
"A good-smelling human, but a human nonetheless. But you smell... different." Slade concluded, staring expectantly at Gabryjel. Ash just stared as Slade spoke, almost amazed at his twin's ability to ask such invasive questions. With a small scoff, Ash turned away and shoved his hands in his pockets. He was craving a cigarette desperately but was saving what he had left for the party. Ash was ready to get moving, but he wouldn't just leave the group. He could easily follow his scent home but he didn't want to leave his brother alone to do something stupid. He would have to bear with it until Slade wanted to go home. Tonight wouldn't be a night where Ash would have Slade's attention, but perhaps tomorrow when Slade was hungover, Ash could have his twin all to himself. He looked forward to that.

Gabryjel felt part of himself die when Ash and Slade appeared. Instead of jumping or being frightened at all, he let out an annoyed groan. He still had a funny feeling about these guys, in particular Slade. He was a lot like Aiden and that was a very bad thing in terms of parties. Aiden had cheated on him because of parties more than once and he wasn't really in the mood to get cheated on another time. Aiden had even promised that he would "never go to another party" but apparently that promise didn't mean much.

"See I told you they'd show up," Aiden said rather matter-of-factly. "Now we can show them around or something like I said."
There was no response from Gabryjel.
"I would say we could go to Suomenlinna, which is an inhabited sea fortress in Helsinki, but it's an island so I don't think it's still open right now... and if it is, it's not near but it isn't far so we would end up being gone longer than we would want to. Seurasaari is nice too but it's also an island..." Aiden began to trail off.

As Aiden pondered about something to do, Gabryjel forced himself to not let out another sigh at Slade's invasive question. "I'm a half elf. I'm unaware of what the other half is. Some people have said I also smell human, other people say I also smell like a fae but I don't care. I just am what I am."
He really didn't give a crap about what his other half was, or even that he was a elf. He didn't speak Elvish, he didn't know many elves, and he was only proficient in blood magic. All others forms he was mediocre or flat out sucked at. Hell, he wasn't even all that great of an earth bender.

"I rather like Hietaniemi Cemetery, it's interesting to look at the older graves that are within it. How do you guys feel about that?" Aiden asked while uncrossing his arms. "Also, what are you guys? I can't decide if you're demons or vampires."

"En edes halua mennä tämän typerän puolue," Gabryjel muttered and crossed his arms. He knew that this whole thing was going to end badly. He loved Aiden a lot, but he had an addictive personality. Add a bad influence like Slade and it became even worse. Hell, a cemetery was literally the perfect place to die. He didn't want to die any more than he wanted to get cheated on tonight, but it looked like at least one or the other was going to happen. He was rarely pessimistic but this situation sure as hell called for it.

Slade grinned brightly at Aidens energy and enthusiasm. It was refreshing for him. Aiden even seemed pleased to see them, whereas Gabryjel was put off by the entire thing. Slade almost suggested that Gabryjel not come, but kept the suggestion to himself to not seem rude. The islands Aiden had begun to list off piqued Slades interest, but Aiden was right in saying it'd probably be too long. Aiden did seem to know the area well though, and Slade would need to remember to go to him whenever he was looking for things to do.
"Half elf... It smells good... I've never had elf blood, I bet it tastes delicious. And my dad says fae tastes delicious... I bet elf and fae together would be amazing..." Slade licked his lips as he considered it, then stopped himself and grinned brightly and Gabryjel.
"Don't worry! Me and Ash ate, so I won't try anything. I promise." Slade smiled reassuringly, then looked to Aiden again.
"Cemetery sounds nice for me. And we're vampires," Slade told Aiden warmly, putting a hand around his twins shoulders.
Ash was still somewhat glum about the whole ordeal, but a walk sounded nice to him, even if it was in a cemetery. He nodded in agreement with Slade, then looked to him as his twin threw his arm over his shoulders.
"A walk would be pleasant..." Ash spoke softly, almost inaudibly. He hoped the walk would be spent close to Slade, but already his twin had pulled away to go running up ahead, even without direction. A small sigh escaped Ashes lips as he shoved his hands into his pocket, waiting for Aiden to lead the way.
"Lets go."

As if Gabryjel wasn't already put off by the idea of hanging out with specifically Slade, his comment made it even worse. They were obviously younger vampires, looks having nothing to do with it. The way they had stared at the kid earlier and had repeatedly stares at him said a lot.
While crossing his arms, he pursed his lips and started to follow behind Aiden. The walk there wouldn't be too long but that wasn't the point.
---

Upon getting to the cemetery, Gabryjel took a seat on the outer wall. He didn't want to go inside, and he figured Slade wanted them to go to the party enough to not eat his boyfriend.
It was beginning to get dark out since it was nearing winter and the air was starting to cool. Due to being near the ocean there was a cool breeze as well, sending a chill up Gabryjels spine.

"You're not going to come in?" Aiden asked him and put his hands on Gabryjels thighs. "You don't seem to be in a very good mood."

"I've been here plenty of times. I told you to begin with I didn't want to do any of this." The whole way here Aiden had been talking to Slade about food anyway. He or even Ash could've been shot and died and neither one of them would've noticed. The twinge of jealousy from earlier was getting stronger as the night grew. Aiden was bound to fuck up if he got drunk or did drugs. He had repeated this numerous times but he knew it was going to happen. He not only had an addictive personality, he was terrible at resisting temptations.

Aiden let out a soft sigh and leaned in to kiss Gabryjel, who leaned away. He remained leaned in for a moment before pulling back and frowning. "Well, if you want to stay out here by yourself then be my guest."
Without saying much else, he headed into the graveyard. He knew at the least Slade was going to follow. His brother seemed like a real drag and downer as it was.
Once he was a little deeper into the graveyard he started to feel a little bad but brushed it off. "We know a few vampires," he said to start a conversation. "Four to be specific. Three of the four are here in Finland, the fourth is in Japan."
