Edge of Thorns 2 - Pt 16Part 16
I'm probably going to regret this later, but she is right...
Nathan still frowned and rubbed his neck. "I guess so," he admitted. "I probably could use the back up, but..."
"Great," Enya said with a smirk and a satisfied nod. "Because if you had said no, I was going to chew you out and help anyway. Better that you just agree with me."
Despite his apprehensiveness, Nathan still laughed at that. "If it means avoiding an argument, then yeah, probably."
"Did I miss anything exciting?" Alton returned to his guests, standing beside the table with his hands folded in front of him. While they both shook their heads, Enya eased the cat off her lap and stood up from the table, bouncing beside him and wrapping her arms around his shoulders.
"Didn't miss a thing, Al, though I was wondering what we're going to do now. It's still raining and I sure as hell don't feel like going home yet."

Micah. Normal clothes. Still Micah. Better be honest.
Nathan gave him an awkward grin and held up his notepad. "Article on Famina for The Citizen," he told him honestly. "Guess I got more than I bargained for..."
Micah snorted (a laugh?) and rolled his eyes, but the scowl barely changed. If it weren't for that frown, he'd look like he'd just stepped out of a men's catalogue: blue V-neck sweater pulled over a pale blue plaid shirt (the top button undone), pre-worn jeans and, miraculously, sneakers. While Nathan registered the casual look, Micah turned his attention to the other angel, posing the same question to him: "And you, Gabriel?"
