WHO: Emma Franklin and Jonah
WHEN: Thursday after Emma is home
WHERE: The Baron's apartment
WHAT: Jonah almost acting like a boyfriend
Envy may have let Jonah go but there was needling in the back of his mind that just wouldn't go away. It wasn't the dark cloud he had had hovering over him before, this was less invasive, just breeding all kinds of thoughts so that Envy could reel him back like a fish on a string. It was a black spot in the back of his mind that would eventually grow in the same way a tumor did that spread throughout his system. It made him unusually tired as he tried to cling to himself. Could a Virtue really be infected by a Sin? He was weak though, he'd never stayed in this form quite as long before, Maddy was usually taking over when he was so weak---but he was hanging on as long as he could. He had someone to protect now, someone else that accepted his affections and attention.
Jonah showed at the Baron's apartment with a gift basket. Should he have brought flowers instead? He thought the flowers might feel a little too forward so he opted for something a little more friendly. Inside were some goodies, things she could eat and even some chocolate. He'd expected to see her father standing in the doorway, but he had left for work, giving Emma strict instructions that she was to have few visitors and he had to know who was coming over and at what times. Since the event he'd squabbled out with her mother that she was to stay with him for a few weeks. It was the first time really that the Baron had even got some sort of long-term father-daughter time with Emma. In some way, as bad as the situation had been, it had given him his daughter in the way a father should.
