WHERE Apt. SS
WHEN May 13th, 2012, Afternoon
SUMMARY There is much to discuss between co-conspirators.
Honestly? Today is a beautiful day. It's sunny. Its warm. There are birds chirping outside windows all across the city. In all honesty, there's very little the matter with Simon's life... he has a kitten; a boyfriend who wants to take him on a luxurious holiday; his classes are nearly finished for the year; even though he is playing sadly, he's not playing badly; and in general, there's summer to look forward to, even if he won't be able to spend any of it in Paris thanks to the Olympics shooting up European airfare to ridiculous prices. He is healthy, housed, and mentally stable. However, he is also very hungry, because he has found it hard to suffer food that tastes like gruel no matter what he puts on it, and besides which, it chafes him that the music he has spent so much time working on can't be played in his final solo. He only had two, after all.
He wanted them both to be special - he wanted to debut his work - and they are special, but now the damn thing is going to end up an angstfest. At least, he hopes, with the change in selections, he can at least inspire his audience to tears, because the music is beautifully sad. There's something to that, too, but Simon doesn't want to be sad. He wants to be glad, because he is young, it is late spring, and he is madly in love.
Instead, he is angry.
And this is why he's invited Ari over today. He knows Sunny will have a conniption. If there's one person she wants in their home less than Jack or Gus, it's Ari. However, Simon's room is perhaps the only safe place in New York for them to discuss what they mean to talk about today. Admittedly, whilst being hungry and disappointed are not things Simon can stomach particularly well, there's also a thrill of curiosity about what his mother and her cohorts have arranged this time. A monster from the void that can destroy gods. If they could somehow harness that power...
He sits on the steps of the apartment. This way, he can make sure to get Ari into his room as quickly and smoothly as possible. Sunny's bizarre terror of the man probably would keep her from saying anything on seeing him, but just in case she's in one of her louder moods - like she was with Jack - he's going to play it safe. It feels a little too warm to smoke somehow, so instead, he just watches people walking their dogs (ew dogs) and the light shifting between the leaves of the trees on the sidewalk. He doesn't look up until he feels the buzz of magic nearing. Then, he gets to his feet, smiling in an admittedly world-weary fashion.
