Hey all!

Thanks to windcharmer for giving me permission to post this, when I asked *ahem* 13 weeks ago. ::: grins ::: Windcharmer, if you'd like to promote your community in a post in mine, I'd be happy to approve it!

I'd like to invite you all to compete in the brigits_flame monthly writing contest, and to share in the community fun. We have a great base of thoughtful, intelligent, and supportive members in the community, with no drama. Our focus is to socialize, become our best in writing, and share our creativity with one another. We've been building our own community web site that shows all our community artwork (of which there are more than 200 icons and banners) and our community FAQ, for those who want to get an overview of what we're about or reference specific contest rules.

Plans cancelled. Pam thought it was a good idea, and that was good enough for her. She needed the break.

Between what had happened and who had been there when it happened and the events of the last few months and it all jumbled up together in her mind as she closed the door and locked it behind her. She knew she was focusing on him so she didn't have to think about the rest of it. But she didn't want to think about him either. Gregory with his too-blue eyes and his sweet sweet smile, right up until the eyes went pale and evil and his face darkened with something she had decided to call rage.

She'd thought he was going to hit her. Or try to; she'd prepared herself for it. They'd fought, all right, but no hitting. Just angry words and she thought there had been the angry slam of a door, or maybe that was just her mind putting a punctuation on the moment when he'd walked out of her life the first time. She hadn't even heard him walk away the second time.

Fuck Greg, anyway. Fuck him and the sidewinder he rode in on.

Bela Talbot didn't trust many people, she'd learned at a young age that it was easily shattered. The people she trusted the most were the ones that always let her down. It's why she was the way she was. Why she tried not letting anyone get close to her. Defenses were always high and a brick wall would go up. No one had gotten through, not fully anyway. Sure they chipped away a bit here and there but never broke it down, and by the next time they saw her? Those little bits would be repaired and stronger then ever.

Two people could get to her and she hated them for it most of the time. Dean and Sam Winchester. Sure she was good at aggravating them, it was part of her defenses. If you couldn't push them away easily, you drove them away with callousness and heartlessness. It seemed to work well. Until she slipped up and let Sam get a little too close. The dream had been a bit much. Though she was learning to trust again, she was trusting Dean and Sam.

She just hated to admit she needed them at times, especially Sam. He got to her like no other could. She found she enjoyed being wrapped up in his arms. She was trusting Sam with something she said she'd never trust anyone with, her heart.

He was sick to death of resting. Life had become boring and he found himself wanting some of the action he used to experience.

Was it wrong to seek excitement? Especially when that excitement usually entailed some kind of life threatening event involving either himself or those he loved.

No, not that kind of thrill. He shivered.

But something.

He loved his beach home, he love the sea, the birds, the sand, walking amongst it all at sunset, but there was a core of him that was built for something else. Deep inside what he was the man who made a difference still existed. He strived to come to the fore, to reach out and save, to do what he had been reborn to do.

Michael was just Michael.

But Michael Knight refused to die.

[Set on or around Day 64 in Eden]

After the conversation, things settled. He didn't have to know why or to what purpose he was doing it, just that he was. It hadn't been so much a discussion as an open statement of some things and a public (such as it was) acknowledgment. And having acknowledged it, there wasn't much point in fighting it.

They also didn't feel a need to crash on through it, which was sort of a relief. Having gotten it out, if not in specific words that maybe should have been used, they were both content by unspoken agreement to continue on as they had been. To let things unfold moment by moment, as seemed right or appropriate at the time.

Right now the time was late morning, and the sun was streaming lazy and lemony through the window of the upper room. He supposed it had been a bedroom at some point; now it was a room where they practiced their powers. Diffuse enough to keep shadows from forming, it nonetheless cast everything in a cool yellow light, almost giving the impression that he had his hands buried to the wrists in living flame.
