    In the darkness and artificial lights of street lamps and signs, maybe the slight reddening of his ears would go unnoticed.

    He was used to hearing weakness and depravity, yes, but usually in halting, sanitized and vague accounts rather than lurid first person descriptions.

    "You... dated... one?"
    With the garish lighting, his furrowed brows sunk his eyes into dark shadows as he turned the revelation over in his thoughts. "What sort of proof?"

    His question was sudden and had a quiet, intense curiosity to it. The curiosity was enough to ignore Misty, to refrain from answering that, Yes, she was the exact sort he'd imagine would have unprotected sex and not even realize she was pregnant for months. But then he realized she'd turned and actually expected an answer.

    "Ah... it was hypothetical? But, frankly, Tal brings up a good point. Scary, even. Not just of being sought out, or people close to us attacked, but that maybe the only ones who take up the Vigil are those of us with nothing to lose."

    Skipping along, Ursula tilts her head in thought. "...well. Uh-kinda. It depends. On stuff. I didn't really listen." a dismissive shrug was given, before her attention was shifted to what else the actress had said. "If it's a Saloon, it has to be good right? That's where cowboys hung out." a smirk grew, "Well, all those outlaws were here right?" turning to Rory, remembering what he'd said back at the motel. "Has to be good." and if it wasn't, just leave it to Misty and her. They'd make everything better.

    "Baby making practice is hella fun. But kids scream. And shit. Eww. No. Thank you."

    A hand absently reaches for her back. Sure daddy had left marks, but he didn't know it was her that was tied up naked during that Abbey Masquerade party.

    "Wait. Tal? Do you have a monster stalker? Do we need to figure how we could get a restraining order to work, or do you just need help bashing some skulls?" the concern upon Ursula's face shifted as Rory drew her attention.

    "Cha-yeah. I've dated one. Well more then one. The second one was waaay more fun then the first. Could use a cat o'nine tails like she was born with it." A dreamy expression crosses her face, a pleasant tingle travels up and down her spine, as warmth began pooling betwixt her thighs. "The proof, Rory-dear, was in the pudding." she blinks cutely, even as her eyes are glazed off in memory. "Did you know there's no actual proof in pudding? I looked once. Well. I was watching some pudding wresting, and thought, 'why the fuck not?' and I got in the ring. So. No proof. But whatever." another shrug, "Anyway, they staked him. And he didn't die. Like he did. But he got better."

    Nothing left to live for?

    The fuck was Rory talking about? This Vigil business was the reason Ursula lived. It was the reason why she could get up before noon, tracking her prey, the Hunt. It just got her blood pumping, and her panties wet.

    Once her baby-blues met Misty's - maybe the actress would get it - she shrugged. Because. Seriously. The fuck?

    "My first encounter with the things from the Other Side wasn't as fun as yours," Tal explained, her tone clearing expressing just what she thought of that particular sentiment. But, then, an odd expression crossed her face, and eventually resolved itself into a wry smile.

    "Though I'm sure mine lasted longer than your boyfriend did."

    The smile turned ugly, and then dropped away.

    "I saw it in 2006. Didn't know what it was. At the time, I'd just thought it was some kind of...optical illusion. Maybe a mirage, or something brought on by lack of sleep and too much adrenaline. But then I saw it again in 2008. And again when my cousin died. I put a bullet in it, but I don't know if that was enough. I think it had just been wearing a body...I think it was a Dybbuk. A possession."

    She shuddered then and rolled her shoulders, as if settling a weight into a more comfortable position.

    "All I know is that some things take more than stakes, or bats, or bombs and guns. That's what really scares me."

    "Oh I escaped my past," Misty snickered. "Daddy was a mechanic and mommy was a cheer leader who somehow managed to completely ignore the whole sexual revolution." She snorted. Turned 18 and out: out west where the air was free and she could make herself into something! Where should could live the dream. Fuck them all in that sleepy little mid western town!

    "I made something of myself!" Yes, you tell them! Tell them how you wound up in the wrong cafe; the wrong alley; with the wrong wrong man and his oh-so-wrong contacts. Tell them about the drugs and the booze. Tell them about loosing respects. Tell them about the hunger and the mad rush...

    Ursula, it seemed, knew all about that...

    "And I don't know about you guys, but hunting is the shits! Without it life would be boring! Seriously. Its what makes life worth living." If the hunting didn't get her, disease, drugs or the booze would. If it wasn't for the Abbey and the hunt, she would probably have been offed already - she wasn't getting any younger. But now she had friends. "If I'm not hunting, I'm like, waiting for it. Or something. My phone is always on, baby."

    She paused, thinking.

    "If it bleeds, we can kill it." Her voice imitation was completely off.

    "Dybbuk? Wassat? Sounds, like, foreign or something? What is that? Polish or something?" Poland was in Europe, right? She had fucked a Pole, once. Green carded dude. Fucking giant. Or was that the Swede with the birthmark? To be honest it was a blur. She remembered the birthmark - how could she not. It was huge! The birth mark. Really.

    Was this how Lot felt?

    In the middle of nowhere with a porn star and... whatever Ursula was... it was the only analogy Rory could think of. And the situation really did demand an analogy to take his mind off the fact that at least two of his companions were insane. He'd been hoping for some common ground, some sense of purpose (or even a clue) and had only turned up pudding and kimono dragons.

    The big takeaway? They were only in it as long as there wasn't something more fun to do.

    "It's a sgΰile, Misty,"
    he answered. Knowing full well Gaelic probably made just as much sense as Yiddish which was right about par for how much sense what was coming out of her mouth made to him. "So, Ursula? No fancy Geiger counters or that sort of kit then."

    There had to be a way to find these... things... before they just got sloppy about a victim.

    "Well. Mine was when I was still with the Church."
    His tone was dull and flat. Expecting, yet subtly warning off all the jokes the situation invited. "An itinerant Cardinal with a wee overbite."

    And, like Lot's wife turning back, how long until the insanity turned him into salt?

    A gale of high pitch laughter exploded forth from sadly unpainted lips. "It wouldn't have taken much to out last him!"

    A thought crosses her mind, staying there and twisting her features into an almost unrecognized shape. "If you fuck a possessed guy is that a threesome?" Ursula Cole, always asking the hard questions.

    "Then we need bigger guns. Or learn some voodoo or something. Or hire someone who already knows voodoo."

    "Totally!" Ursula is quick to agree with Misty. "I lost one of my virginities to one of your films." another high pitched giggle, "See. Misty's the only one of you that makes sense. It's totally a good thing sweetie." if Ursula had been the only fun one in this Cell, making with the fun would have become a chore, and she was totally not down with that.

    Okay, so the lesion learned from this was Rory and Tal had the tongues to twist into foreign words. Now...to see their tongue twisting talent in action.

    "Hmm?" Ursula frowns cutely, her mind occupied with other more pleasurable things when Rory had been talking.

    She has this nagging feeling like she completely missed something. Something wonderful and wicked, an opportunity to be sinfully catty.

    Oh well. The pastel princess internally shrugs, as she bats her lashes, and smiles.

    That normally worked whenever her deliciously wonderful mind ran away with those oh, so pleasurable possibilities.

    "If you have sex with someone whose body is possessed," Tal stated, her voice going completely flat, "then it's not a threesome. It's rape."

    Tal's eyes landed on Ursula and stayed there, fixed upon the pastel princess in a hard, flat stare.

    "I'm guessing that you'd do it, anyway, though, wouldn't you? If you had the chance. Tell me I'm wrong, Ursula. Or you, Misty."

    The stare slid lizardlike onto the faded starlet.

    "If you had the chance, and you decided it would be fun, you'd still do it. I mean, that's why you kill things, isn't it? Because it gives you pleasure?"

    The former soldier's lip curled in a sneer.

    "I've known people like you before. But this time, if I see you hurt someone, I'm not going to let it go."

    Misty blinked at the sudden attack. She actually took a step back before she took a step forward.

    "Like, Ooooo! Scary! What, its okay for those things to have fun but we can't? Hell! I don't know! Never seen anyone possessed before. So... Don't know, honey."

    She fixed a lascivious smile on her lips.

    "Whats wrong with hunting for pleasure, anyway? Cat's do it. And people like cats. We don't all have to be depressed and oh so carrying the big burden that no else can shoulder! Pu-leeze... The people who say that shit are some of the worst whacked out deviants around. Its why they so depressed - lying to themselves."

    She sniffed and moved toward the front of the pack.

    "Where is this saloon anyway?"

    They should have come upon the saloon by now.

    In fact the Cell should have seen something, anything other then the scattered lampposts, lights dim and flickering, as power-lines pulled taut and sparking, their posts seemed further and further away.

    The signs of life that had been so prominent upon their arrival to this small desert town, slowly fell away as they walked, until it was only the four of them, the desert and the bitter autumn night around them.

    Rory let the prattle wash over him, lost in thoughts about Tal's words. It was a welcome distraction from talking about possession which turned his thoughts to exorcism, which...

    "Well the Catechism, 1859 and 1860, define sin as willful. Obviously Mortal but Venial can be do in ignorance -- assuming one didn't know."
    Which Rory did assume. Because if somone continued to have sex with someone they knew was possessed... he was right there with Tal. "But obviously 1865 has to be taken into consideration."

    Sin creates a proclivity to sin, Mortal or Venial, knowing or not.

    "Sorry. Old habits."

    He offered the dark-haired woman an apologetic smile. Even though they were an age, and not in a classroom, he still thought of her as a student. A perception she'd fostered with precisely those types of incisive statements or questions.

    "And some people might think of it as a calling? Not a burden."
    The last was directed at Misty, but included Ursula. "Why would... doing the Lord's work ...protecting the innocent be depressing?"

    It was the silence. His own words, as singular and piercing in the night as a confessional booth. Rory did a slow turn while walking, feet spinning him into a circle.
