[complete] Where I Belong

Postby Floyd Gravel » Fri Oct 14, 2016 9:54 am

Elijah was Floyd's least favorite sibling.

Like, okay, it wasn't that he hated him or anything, but he didn't particularly like him, either. Granted, he wasn't Owen's biggest fan either, but they sort of got along. With Elijah, Floyd was always reserved, cold, or outright hostile. It was a combination of a lot of things, but lately it was the auror thing. A dream Floyd couldn't achieve that Elijah was attaining -- and at a much younger age. Maybe all of the dislike just stemmed from resentment or jealousy.

Or maybe it was more than that.

Regardless, he made an effort to keep something of a relationship with him, if only because Maya and their mom (mostly Maya) insisted they try.

So they were meeting for drinks!

It's never pleasant to know you're disliked. Floyd, well, Floyd disliked him.

Elijah wasn't sure why, which probably bothered him the most. He had never done anything to the older Gravel and actually looked up to Floyd. Or he had when he was younger. It was pretty difficult to look up to someone who on a good day ignored you.

Needless to say, their relationship had not been the best recently. Maya, though, sought to change that.

And seeing as Elijah had pretty much never been able to say no to his sister, here he was. Sitting in the Leaky Cauldron, cupping a mug of firewhiskey and trying not to over think how uncomfortable the meeting would be.

He was a couple minutes late.

"Hey," he said as he slid into a seat across the table from Elijah.

"Hey Floyd. How've you been?"

Basics were a good place to start after all. You couldn't go wrong with them. Right?

"Good."

.... Silence wasn't too bad, he supposed.

He waved down a waitress to order a beer.

The silence turned out to be terrible.

"So, uh. How's work....?"

"Good." He wasn't going to reciprocate the question, but it was as if he heard Maya's voice in his head, telling him to not be a butthole. "You?"

"Good."

Merlin, if only Maya hadn't insisted. Or if she'd only come. Either way, things would have been probably better.

"That's good." His drink came and he thanked the waitress, then blatantly checked her out as she walked away, taking a sip of his beer as he did.

"Yup."

Yup. This wasn't awkward at all. Elijah totally did not just want to give a poor excuse and get the fuck out of there.

A Wild Poltergeist Appears!


#TrollfaceMcGee



Somehow, both Elijah and Floyd's drinks got spiked with veritaserum! Neither of them are yet aware of it, but it is starting to take effect. They are now forced to tell the truth!

He turned back to Elijah, maybe intending on saying something nice, or maybe not intending on saying anything at all.

Instead, however, he said, "I don't want to be here." He seemed surprised by his own words, brow furrowing.

Elijah, for his part, had been trying to say something sympathetic. Instead, he said, "I don't either. I'm trying to think up a reasonable excuse that would allow me to leave without facing Maya's scorn."

He, though, flushed with embarrassment after the comment left his mouth, trying to think of why the hell he had said that.

His eyebrows lifted. Weird. He tried to skirt around the topic, but found himself saying, "I don't like you, and I've told Maya that but she makes me do this shit anyway."

He would have attempted a quick topic change - he'd wanted to, but instead the words he found himself saying were: "I know. It pretty much drove me crazy because I used to look up to you, but I don't really care much anymore."

He faltered, then, surprised, "You did?"
