Sulfur and Five Days of Funk

Rating: PG-13

Xavier Mansion - Kitchen

This kitchen was designed to feed large numbers of people, and looks it with its bright white walls and stainless steel appliances. The stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher are all larger than normal. There is an island with stools around it for people to sit and eat around along with a table for twelve by the windows in back. Along the wall is a hole in the wall looking into the dining room so food can be passed back and fourth. Anything you want to cook or eat in the kitchen you will find the food and supplies to do so.

Late at night, Jeri's wandering the halls of the mansion. Finally, with nothing better to do, he goes to the kitchen. He actually has something in his hands as he does. Sure, it's not normal school valid stuff, but he's got a little alcohol. Things have been hell, and he just wants to relax a little. Cranberry Juice and Rum. It works for him. He's mixing it, and keeping the bottle well on himself so no students get it.

Right after he was changed back Christopher dropped Mikhail and James off and flew straight to the house. Which was empty. So he flew back to the school. It's freezing outside but he hasn't had time to get dressed yet and he's still in those awful tight black pants he was wearing as a demon. He's gone upstairs to Jeri's room to find that he's not there then searched around a bit and finally found him in the kitchen. He stands in the door way watching Jericho mix. "Do you have enough for a second glass?" He asks quietly.

Turning around to the voice, Jeri stops. He doesn't say anything yet. He simply grabs another glass and adds an equal mixture to it. Afterwards, he sips off the top of each glass and pours more rum into it before crossing the room with the glasses. He places the glasses on the counter next to Christopher. He looks over the man he married, then, without warning, grabs him up in his arms and… well… the next few moments aren't safe for some student's sensibilities. But needless to say, Jeri reminds Christopher how he feels, adding at the end. "Finally. You're back." (None of that, you pervs.)

All of Christopher's worries are eliminated with that one moment and he returns what ever Jeri gives with a passion, wraping his arms around his husband. "Finally, I'm so sorry I let you down Jeri. I love you so much, you and the boys. It was stupid of me, so very stuipd." He feels guilty about his decision about that moment of weakness. "Jeri, you're the most wonderful man in the world, you really are."

"It happens. I'm most worried about your mind. How are you dealing with it all?" Jeri asks, handing the glass he made to Christopher, knowing he may need a little aid in relaxing for now. "And you're not the first one we've gotten back. So, I know it's a lot."

"Odd…" Christopher says as he was kind of lucky. He didn't resist, he didn't kill anyone but he took pleasure in causing fear and making people 'respect' him. "It's like a fog, it was me, but it wasn't. I think it's my guilt of the decision. It was a moment of weakness Jeri. There was an angel, or demon in sheeps clothing, he came to me and played on my fears. My unreasonable fear of losing you and the kids." He says as that's the main problem, his guilt at not being strong enough to resist the temptation.

"Sweetheart… someday, it's going to happen. We're mortal. We just have to be prepared for it." Jeri says with a soft smile. "I don't know why people worry about it. I don't WANT it to happen, but it's part of life." He explains, wrinkling his nose a little. "You need a shower."

There's a brief chuckle before Christopher looks over at the glasses. "I know, I'm lucky that guy…Keld…didn't put more of a hurt on me." Christopher reaches up and brushes some of Jeri's hair, tucking a bit of the grays behind his ear. "It's not the eventual death I'm worried about, it's the untimely ones. Like with David. That demon knew what my fear was and manipulated me into succumbing to it. And yeah, those demons don't know anything about showers or interior design." He teases.

"Of course they know. They're demons. They're designed to prey on your weakest parts." Jeri says with a bit of a shrug as he shakes his head, picking his own glass up and sipping at it. "None came to me. Don't know why they chose who they did."

Robyn shakes his head. "I don't know love, maybe those of us with strong fears? Ones that they knew they could easily manipulate? Those of us who believe in Angels?" There's a difference between believing in a religous icon and having faith in an religious icon. "I just hope the kids are okay, I can get over this, especially with you on my side babe. I need to talk to Jared and Eddie at some point too, I want them to understand what happened."

"Jared already knew about it. I told him to stay here since there were…" Jeri coughs a little bit. "Threats." He says, taking another gulp. "Eddie just got back the other day. He's around. Now that everyone's free to go about their daily lives again, who knows where he'll be. Here or at home."

"I want them to know though /why/ it happened. Just so they can understand why their father made the decision to become one of them. No, I didn't know what would happen but I did decide." Christopher says leaning against Jeri, he just feels better to be with his husband. "I'm glad Eddie's okay and got back safely, and that Jared's also okay but with his healing, he's a hard one to keep down, just like his father."

"Of course." Jeri grins. "By the by. We need remodellers to fix some minor damage to the house. And you're taking another week off of work to remodel." He says, sticking out his tongue, in that 'whether or not you like it' mode.

Robyn blushes and nods. "Yeah, I'm going to be busy over the next few weeks." He says rubbing the back of his head. "Sorry about that, that was a…" He just shakes his head and he remembers exactly what was going through his head that day. "That really was the worst of me Jeri, it really ways. I'm just glad you're not making me sleep on the couch for this."
"Why would I make you sleep on the couch. The bed is as much yours as it is mine. I'll make you clean up first." Jeri says with a chuckle. "And make you go see the kids before bedtime."

"I so could use a long bath followed by time in the hot tub." Christopher says leaning down and sniffing him self. "Oh god I really do smell like sulfur and five days of funk." He says looking down at his bare chest. "And I need a shirt." He says chuckling. "I did bring Mikhail and Topher back to the school, the two of them are safe."

"Well, you go do that. We'll make up for lost time in a little bit." Jeri says with a chuckle. "We've still got all our lives. And I know it's not your fault."

Leaning up, Christopher kisses Jeri and gives his rear a light squeeze. "I missed your firm ass." He teases before running hand through his hair. "Yes, I'm going to go shower and then see if Eddie and Jared are up, then tomorrow get things back on track. Along with remodling the house and calling places." He knows he's gonna pay for a lot of the damage he did. "Then I think I owe you some hot tub time." He says with a wink. "After all, it is snowing outside."
