Edge of Thorns 2 - Pt 13Part 13
You know, I've already made Gabriel both model (which he doesn't seem too keen on) and take on a human identity; the least I can do is suffer through the shoot with him.
Nathan considered the offer for a moment, but after another glance at Gabriel -- who seemed to be doing his best not to look uncomfortable with Gloria hanging on his arm while Marq went over the details of the shoot with them -- the writer sighed and shook his head. "I'm afraid I owe him for the torture I'm putting him through," he said with a nod towards the angel. "I didn't think he'd be so adverse to this, and now I feel bad."
Wren wrinkled his nose and shook his head. "I'd gladly fill his shoes, but they probably wouldn't let me. I'm a minor."
"Yeah, that reminds me..." Nathan turned to him, eyebrow raised. "It's a weekday. Shouldn't you be in school?" He wasn't going to comment on the cigarette smoking, but he did wonder what he was doing working on a Wednesday afternoon. The teen just

I'm pretty sure telling the truth (when he can do that already) is only going to piss Gabriel off more. So, how the hell am I going to explain his inexplicable knowledge of the model's death...?
"He's psychic," Nathan told Marq, hoping his smile looked genuine and not desperate. The photographer's horrified expression shifted, becoming confused, so he continued. "You know, psychic? He sees dead people...?"
"Oh." Clearly, Marq wasn't buying it, but he still turned to Gabriel for confirmation. The angel was rubbing his temples, but he nodded.
"Your reaction is precisely why I don't usually bring it up," he said, giving him a half shrug. "Nathan knows, which is why I wanted to talk to him before I took over for Fabrizio in the shoot. Needless to say, that's why I'm uncomfortable with it."
Nathan raised an eyebrow, his jaw dropping. Did Gabriel just...? But his thoughts were interrupted as Marq shook his head and waved his hands, an oddly relieved chuckle escaping him

I get the feeling he's only asking as a courtesy, and would probably come over uninvited anyway. Might as well agree.
Nathan chuckled, rolling his eyes but nodding in agreement. "Okay, but at least give me a little time to do my interview. No offense, Wren, but I don't want her put off by your enthusiasm."
"Why would she be put off by my enthusiasm?" the teen echoed, then shrugged. "Eh, never mind. I need to make the food before it's brought over anyway."
"Good." Nathan pressed his lips together and turned back towards the table. "Well, to work."
He was no more confident now than he was before as he made his way to the table, clutching onto his notebook like it was the only thing protecting him. He knew it was ridiculous that he was this nervous, but it still kept him from shaking. "Ms. Anderson," Nathan greeted when he reached her, freeing one hand from its death-grip on the notebook to extend it to her. "I'm here from the Citizen. Scott couldn't make it."
