Alex could sort of understand Hal's wariness, five hundred years, his habits and beliefs were deeply ingrained by now. But even with that understanding, she just couldn't share his hesitations. The Originals, all the vampires really, they hadn't done anything to her, or to anyone from what she had seen. They seemed like people just wanting to get with their lives, what was wrong with that?
But that wasn't the point. The point was right in front of her, a Hal who seemed on edge, and Alex frowned with some concern. "You sure?" The worry was clear in her tone as she watched him. At least he wasn't the same as before, with that false confidence he had shown when biting Natasha. No, this was more jittery, which was surely a sign he wasn't on blood. Right?
"Routines are good." Okay, not for her, for her they were boring as hell and made being a ghost seem even more dull, but for him they were vital.
"Oh, hey, did I tell you I've been working on my ghostly powers control?" She put a smile on her face, at least attempting to brighten the conversation. "See?" Alex stretched out a hand and focused on the dominoes pieces. Four of them floated up and towards her before spinning in a slow ring around her hand, the pace controlled and steady, each piece an equal distance from the others. A few rotations and spins and she then floated them back to where they had been standing, placing them back into position without them even wobbling.
