Episode Twenty-Five: Senator: Scene 17

I folded my arms. “You even have sexless angels laughing at you now.”

Loki grinned. “Which shows it’s the right thing. If I can cheer them up, I can do anything.”
Sarael and Will both glared at him. Almost matching glares.

“Oh, come on, what is it you do between missions? Sing hymns all the time?”

“You,” Sarael said, “Are just saying that because you can’t sing.”

Both of Loki’s eyebrows shot upwards. “I can too.” He then launched into a rousing rendition of Daydream Believer, of all things.

Actually, he could sing, but only because his gift of the silver tongue made up for his somewhat iffy ability to hit notes.

I was laughing too. “Well. You know I can’t exactly stop you.”

He grinned.

“I can,” Will pointed out. “I can just not tell you her name.”

Sarael, still laughing…which was not an angel thing to do and really did say something about my dad…betrayed him utterly. “It’s Mys’kia.”

“Traitor,” Will accused.

Loki spun his finger and then snapped his fingers to vanish.

“Loki always gets what he wants, one way or another,” I pointed out. “And right now he wants a succubus as a toy.”

Kanesha was rolling her eyes. “Of course he does. Your mother will be thrilled.”

“My mother’s used to it.”

“Doesn’t mean she’s happy.” She grinned. “But…I wish I could be a fly on the wall.”

So did I, at least until the bedroom door closed. Not that I knew for sure Loki intended to turn the not-so-innocent succubus into a sex toy, but I wouldn’t put it past him.

Maybe I should talk to mom. Nah, she’d never been able to keep a leash on him before. What made now any different.

“Maybe something interesting will end up on YouTube.”

“As interesting as him and Coyote in a gay bar in Dupont Circle?” Kanesha pointed out.

“Coyote was kind of hot,” I noted. “How about we go somewhere like that?”

“Are you suggesting a date?”

“It would take my mind off of Loki and succubi.”

She grinned, hooked her arm into mine, and started to pretty much drag me off, leaving angel and priest watching us go.

Angels with a sense of humor wasn’t something I’d expected. Of course, I blamed Loki.
