Title: Brief Lives (9/?)

Author: monstrousreg

Word count:  3339

Warnings:  None in this chapter. 

Pairing: Erik/Charles.

Summary:

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.  )

Notes:  Unbetaed, and stuff. So... This chapter might seem like little plot advancement takes place, but Charles does actually make a leap of faith fucking finally. I noticed more than one of you asked, so about Charles and Raven working for the CIA: it was their initiative, they weren't recruited. Being employed by the relatively powerful CIA gives them a rather strong shield against Shaw in the sense that they can't just disappear. Shaw would have to take one too many risks to kill them, expecially after Charles so kindly set the hounds suits on his trail.

“He didn’t do it on purpose, I don’t think,” Ororo offers in a small voice. “He did feel terrible about it.”  )

“Are you tormenting the children again?” the geneticist asks, arching an unimpressed brow. The man’s eyebrows have a mind of their own.  )

He’s demanding and forceful with everyone, but not as demanding as he is with himself—and with Erik. )

So, I know you're probably not going to be thrilled with a certain development in this chapter but don't worry, Erik will be getting onto that soon enough. You know, good-old I-get-what-I-want Erik.



Erik groans, “Stick to one method of communication. You’re making me dizzy.”  )

Guys. Guys, I know the Camaro came out in 69, but we're talking telepaths and metallokinetics here so could we maybe extend the suspension of disbelief to cars, too? I just. I love the classic Camaro.


“Here, keys, map, address. The car is a blue Camaro, it’s parked on the curve over there. You wreck the car, I wreck your life.” )

“So then what are we waiting for?” he asks bluntly, swiftly deciding if this is the road Xavier wants to go down, then he’s going to be the one taking the lead. He can play rough. Rough is his game.  )
