Title: Brief Lives (9/?)

Author: monstrousreg

Word count:  3339

Warnings:  None in this chapter. 

Pairing: Erik/Charles.


Erik thinks he's going to seduce, interrogate and murder some nondescript CIA intelligence agent, and winds up biting more than he can  chew. Charles is not keen on being murdered, he doesn't favor interrogations, and he's certainly not willing to be seduced. That he's not  cooperating is midly put.   

Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. A bit of a change of pace--a character study of Erik, instead of Charles. For those of you who picked up on the fact that Erik was a little too perfect. Because I like to make my characters a little ugly sometimes, and as George Martin would say--no one is safe. What the hell is wrong with LJ? Why's it messing up my formatting??
NOTICE: I am going update again tomorrow early in the morning. I know it's too soon and you'll not have time to process this chapter, but I'll have to do it because more than likely I won't be able to update again until Thursday after this. I'll see what I can do, but I can't promise anythig and I didn't want to leave you hanging.

Charles has been gone for the last two days—not, as Erik initially suspected, as an attempt to avoid confrontation. There’s a moment of silence. It must be all the more confusing for Charles.
Its metal hums and sings at him, calling out to his gift like light calls at a moth. Erik can feel every single little part of it, every screw and slab or flattened iron down to the smallest coils.  )
