Spectre had been staying at Deirdre’s since having a fight with Thomas that had ended badly. Both of them being interrupted by their son James who had overheard much of the fight. Spectre had told himself he was giving Thomas time, but the truth was that he didn’t want to speak to Thomas. He was avoiding it with all his might, as he was sure that the second he finally confronted his husband again, their marriage would be over. He wasn’t sure he was ready for that.

Time for talking )

After his talk with Abby and what had happened with Erin, Thomas decided talking to Spectre couldn't wait. There was something wrong in their relationship and clearly Spectre was content to simply ignore it and continue on as if it wasn't there. Thomas couldn't do it any more. He was tired of feeling uncomfortable in his home and dodging his family. Tired of sleeping on the sofa and wondering when his husband would come home, if at all.

One of the drawbacks of not speaking to his husband very often, was that he had no idea when Spectre was due to return from Greece. After his talk with Stephie, Thomas had thought hard about how things had been between them and he had been so distracted by worrying about the state of their relationship and the people who had gone to help with the rescue mission against the Templar, that Thomas had sort of even forgotten Spectre was gone. It wasn't as if they saw much of each other when Spectre was around.

So much for that... )

When Spectre thought of the person he could consider his oldest friend, his mind always inevitably brought up Deirdre. She had been a part of his musical act the longest as well, but Deirdre was at least partially responsible for the life he had now. It had been his previous musical partner, Sacrifice, who had been responsible for seeing to it that Deirdre's band replaced their opening act once, a very long time ago. Her reasons may have been nefarious, but Spectre couldn't help but be grateful. They had walked into 213 Victoria Lane that day and Spectre had immediately been wary of Deirdre, whom his angelic senses, in as much as he understood them at the time, immediately distrusted.

Thomas was sitting on the sofa in their living room, his son on his knee while his daughter Katya sat on the floor, drawing a picture of something round and purple. James was reading to Thomas, showcasing his incredible brilliance for a boy who had just turned five. The book he was reading was easily fourth-grade level, but that was often the way things went with angels.

Thomas and Spectre had finally fallen into a familiar rhythm now that it appeared Thomas really wasn't going to disappear again, leaving Spectre and the kids alone. Time was, they spent every second together because they understood their time was limited. Even when Thomas had been given his life back, Spectre hadn't left him alone for months in case it was all taken away from them again. It was different now. Thomas' presence here wasn't special. It wasn't the incredible anomaly it used to him. Thomas being here was the norm. It was mundane.

It had all been for nothing.

His mother had lied to him, had told him Quinn was leaving him. And then Quinn had showed up, his Quinn, and he had said it was all a lie. Flynn was loved. Or he had been. But the things Flynn had done, he had done with the belief that he was a single man.

The demon Amaris haunts Thomas’ dreams more often that he will ever admit, because he is too proud and he doesn't want his loved ones to know the power she has over him. It is a struggle every day just to get the things she did to him out of his mind and at night he has no defences. He has no husband to smile at him, his expression reassuring. He has no children around him to distract him with ever more curious questions about the world. He is alone with his dreams and she always finds him.

Crystal was missing and Thomas had spent several exhausting hours trying to reassure his brother that they would find her. He had returned home with Spectre, emotionally exhausted and sick of losing people he loved, and worry, and watching his husband miss someone, and watching his siblings lose people they loved.

Thomas had gone in to kiss his children goodnight and he had paid Juliette who had come to watch them. After his parental duties, he had taken to leaning up against the wall, his head bent down so his chin rested on his chest. Life was hard. Death was easy. Sometimes being here, being alive again, it wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

The crash that resounded throughout the house when Deirdre entered could not be mistaken for anything else. Deirdre knew Spectre would feel her presence before he could see her and she knew he would recognise her as well. He knew her well enough to know what she felt like.
