Taylor was out and about in LA it was a brand new day and he was another year older just like his big brother Teddy. The adventurous young man was on his motorcycle it was the same as Teddy’s was but just different colors. In a black and blue full face motorcycle helmet he drove along with a backpack on him. It was important to him to keep his needed stuff with him, wallet, cellphone and what not when he needed it. In some blue denim skinny jeans, long sleeved green shirt, black combat boots and some jewelry on him. Peeking out from behind the matte black face shield he made sure it was safe. Speeding off he went right to Starbucks one of his favorite coffee shops ever. Finding a kick ass parking spot he turned off his bike and locked the tires. Moving off with his keys in his jeans pocket he went inside and took out his 256GB iPhone X in silver man he loved that phone, it had been a birthday present from his eldest brother Arelis.
Checking his messages he put the phone into his backpack and took out his deep blue stainless steel Starbucks Card embellished with blue Swarovski crystals Starbucks card, it was always loaded to the gills. Taylor loved having the card it was easier then paying with his phone or credit card. With a birthday reward to use he ordered a Venti peppermint mocha Frappuccino with lots of dark chocolate curls along with a few pieces of coffee cake. Paying he smiled and sat down, putting his helmet on the table next to him to have it close when he was ready to leave. Looking around from where he was sitting near the window. Setting his backpack down in the chair beside him, wondering why he was always alone. Moving his hands along the table, staring down a bit he felt empty and his heart wasn't all there but in pieces.
After a stressful and long trip to the grocery store and a stressful time putting it away , Gideon had needed a drink. A cocktail had crossed his mind at first , but he had soon changed his mind. After throwing his mischievous cat a catnip mouse to keep him busy , the dark haired man had headed off again. After a short bus ride , the dark haired man had deiced to walk the rest off the way to his destination. Crowded places had never been , one of the tall framed man's favorite things. So, if he could avoid it he had certainly wanted to. After crossing a couple street the nail polish clad man had found himself at a local starbucks coffee shop. To annoyance the door's bell had jiggled rather loudly , but he kept the annoyance to himself.
Hi there hun , what can I get for you this fine day?" the dark haired barista had asked of the studded jacket clad man in a sweet tone. For several moments Gideon hadn't responded to the wide eyed women. She seemed worried , but the man's chocolate colored eyes had continued to scan the wall menu anyway. Finally, after a few more seconds the dark haired man had settled on a gingerbread latte with whipped created and sprinkles. He knew it was little early for it , but he hadn't cared all that much. Once he had payed the fluffy haired man had headed off with his drink to a table not to far from one near the window. Practically immediately after sitting down the dark haired man had taken several sips from the cookie flavored drink. To be honest with the relief it had brought to his body , Gideon had contemplated getting a second one.
Taylor had helped his brother take down all of the Halloween decorations from their party and put up the Fall décor. Groaning he hadn’t realized just how massive the house really was and just how long it would end up really taking. Good lord he would take care of his own room much much later on in the day. Taking a little snooze before even doing anything else, he was woken up by his cellphone. Typing to his brothers that he was going out for a ride and would be quite careful. Making a very small bite to eat so he would have room for what he really wanted and took a shower. All clean and dressed Taylor packed up his backpack, making sure not to leave anything behind otherwise it would be a bitch to have to go home. Fishing his motorcycle keys from his side of the key box and got his helmet from the rack. Turning the lights off behind him he made sure everything was locked up tight like a virgin on prom night. It didn’t take long for him to be off for some relaxing coffee and munchies. Keeping the Bluetooth connection on in his helmet if he needed to answer any calls but focused on the street. Hoping it wasn’t balls to the walls busy but nice and quiet for a change, no weird trashy girls hitting on him or anything like that. All parked in his usual spot well the one he and Teddy always got that is. The muscled 6ft3 young demon well by demon standards that it went inside and wrinkled his face up at the loud jingle noise okay the ears didn’t like that.
Looking up from where he was sitting he watched people walking in and out with huge orders. Seeing a new face he looked down at his drink he wasn’t rude but yeah he could be shy at times but less than his big brother was. He held the cup with both hands to not drop it and then held with one hand, sipping the drink he was thoroughly enjoying. Stopping he rotated his neck and leaned back in the chair, soon he heard tapping on the window. It was some girls who had stopped the demonic hottie sitting there by himself okay seriously. Groaning he laid his cheeks in his palms people acted like they had never seen a cute guy before, sheesh. It took him a bit to get back to his snack and pretty much picked at it now. Now he really needed someone to save him and let him know he was more than a pretty boy, since people at his eldest brother’s club had often called him that. Turning his hazel eyes to look at the fluffy haired man not to far from him, he gave a half smile but not much of one with what had happened kind of killed his mood.
After taking several more sips of his drink a tapping noise had perked the man's attention. Soon , the man's chocolate gazed had diverted toward the window. At the sight of the weird girls the tall framed man had arched his eyebrows a bit in confusion. It was then that a beautiful smile on a beautiful man had caught the phoenix witch's gaze. By the sight of the girl's gideon had wondered if it had been a please help me smile. To be honest if it had , Gideon would have been surprised. To be honest he hadn't known why some girls had acted in such weird ways around cute guys. He had wondered if they had known it had just scared them off. Gideon had debated taking the chance several times in his head , before saying grow a pair to himself.
After taking a large sip of his drink as motivation the gentle natured man had stood. To be honest he had been able to feel his heart pounding his chest , as he had made his way over to the handsome guy's table. When he had reached it, he had causally and gracefully taken a seat across from the other man. Your practically saving his life , you can do this Gideon had reminded himself. " There you are." the dark haired man had said after he had reached out to touch the other man's arm gently. In an attempt to let him in on his plan he had winked at the man , before he had glancing to girls briefly. To his relief the girls had looked disappointed and had padded off down the road. At the sight Gideon had moved both hands back to hold his cup. " Hello there. Um I Might as well tell you my name. I 'm Gideon." The dark haired man had shared with a smile before he had taken a sip of his drink. In back of his mind Gideon had half expected his little helpful plan to back fire on him.
Taylor was trying to focus on other things and one was not attracting weird girls, yes he was a model but geez. Taking out his phone he checked his crazy ass schedule and put his Iphone into his pocket if he needed it. Inwardly groaning he did give Gideon a please help me smile but didn’t think it would do any good. Much of the time he had his brothers around him to keep the girls away since he didn’t have any remote interest in them. But thought he was pretty lucky to have left his puppy and kitten at home otherwise he would really be screwed there. Shifting a little in the chair he didn’t want to leave other he was happy where he was or had been. Leaning back against the chair again trying to tune the girls’ words to him out, about wanting him to call them, maybe go out on a date or sleeping with them. Okay now he was feeling his stomach turning on him and gave another please help me look to the guy who was looking at him.
Rubbing at his face he wanted to hide in the bathroom and lock the door this was getting to be too much. Soon he was hearing footsteps on the floor coming over to him. Taylor saw Gideon sitting down with him and thought thank god for this person. “Hey I was wondering where you were. Sorry I couldn't wait I was starving.” Feeling the gentle hand on his arm he smiled and leaned over the table softly kissing Gideon on the lips playing along with him. Hoping to god he wasn’t going to be yelled at for doing that after all was said and done. Taking a very relieved breath after the girls had gone off Taylor was able to relax again. “Thank you for that I didn't think anything would make those awful girls leave me alone! Ummm I'm sorry about the kiss there! Hi! I’m Taylor Omni it’s good to meet you Gideon, thank you again so much for helping me with those girls.” Feeling his stomach calming down he sipped on his drink and moved the pieces of coffee cake over if Gideon wanted some too. “Cool nails.” He was able to really smile and show his beautiful teeth, Taylor was getting back to his normal self.
To be honest Gideon hadn't expected his spontaneous act of help to go so well. Nor had he expected the other man to go with it so thoroughly. To be honest Gideon's mind had expected a number of negative reactions. Like an exclaimation of go away or a weird look or something of the that nature. The sudden kiss had left him surprised and speechless for quite a few moments. In fact , he had been pretty sure that the surprise and the oh um wow feeling had been spread across his face. He had certainly felt the warmness of a blush behind his ears. Despite , his surprise it had at least saved them from the craziness that would of have been the excited girls. In his flustered state the dark haired man could only nod and muttered out its okay to keep up charade. Once the girl's voices had died down the man's mind had been more than relieved.
Finally when , the charade had subsided the other man had spoken to him again. In order to jolt himself in focus the dark haired man had taken a large sip from his drink. The warmness had spread a welcome feeling across his bones. " Your very welcome , they seemed kind of crazy in my opinion. So, no problem." Gideon had finally started after he had adjusted his grasp on his cup a bit. " To be honest I didn't expect you to go that far with the act. So, you definitely took me by surprise. Don't get me wrong I'm not mad, just of taken of guard. All I honestly expected was words or something like that." The chocolate eyed man had continued before he had realized he had been rambling a bit. " Forgive me i'm rambling. So sorry Taylor. Its nice to meet you even in this unconventional way. That's a good thing though. Makes things interesting." Gideon had added with a warm and amused smile spread across his lips. The smile had seemed to remain for a few moments , before he had taken another sip from his drink.
Taylor really hoped he hadn’t overstepped his bounds on that kiss. He took some quiet breaths in anticipation for a yell or something worse. Trying to wrap his mind around what was happening at the moment, he did what was needed. Seeing the look of surprise and wow on Gideon’s face he didn’t really know what sort of expression was on his face at the moment. But knew he was blushing from ear to ear he could feel it, his face was flushed and warm. The demon was 100000000% single and didn’t think there was a good soul out there for him, that would want him not his fame or money. Looking every so often back at the window not seeing the girls come back, it was just a precaution mostly. Knowing it was all okay he was happy again.
Rubbing the back of his neck some he sipped at his drink soon after, wrapping his other hand around his cup. Really not wanting to drop it that was the last thing he needed to occur. Taylor reached over and picked up half of a piece of bread nibbling on it a bit. “Yeah they were all acting like major nut jobs, hopefully they don’t come back anytime soon.” Lifting up his eyebrows and lowered them, looking down at his drink. Now a little embarrassed he never really did that and so it was a first since his brothers kept the loons away from him. “Honestly I didn’t think I would either, I was surprised quite myself.” Admitting that he nodded getting that completely. “Most of the time my brothers keep the crazies away but I’m out alone so yeah it’s different. I understand I don’t normally go and do that so it’s a first for me.” Shrugging he listened to Gideon talking to him. “It’s okay Gideon no worries! Yeah it’s nice to meet you too. It sure does.” Taylor grinned and tucked in to the rest of the slice of coffee cake. Moving the plate over more to Gideon since his mouth was presently full.
" Oh dear i hope not either.." The dark haired man had started after another sip of his drink. To be honest Gideon had doubted the crazy girls would come back. But judging by the others words , Gideon had guessed the other man had been worried about it. Gideon had guessed he could of been wrong about that assumption. But , to be honest he had wanted to make sure that the handsome man had been alright. " Um if you want I could walk you home later. Just to be safe." The dark eyed man soon had offered with a warm and small smile. After hearing the words leave his lips , Gideon had wondered if the words had been too bold or weird. At that thought he had hoped that he wouldn't scare the other man away. So far , he had taken quite a few steps out of his comfort zone. Therefore , he had wanted to try and keep that up to see if he it cause a positive and welcomed outcome.
" Its seems that we both surprised are selves today then." Gideon had commented in an encouraging tone after the front door's bell had chimed bit. Gideon had looked worried by the other man's next words. " That happens to you often?" Gideon soon had questioned with the concern very clear in his voice. Meanwhile , the tall man's long fingers had gripped his cup a little tighter for a few seconds. After he had spotted the half mooned marks, the man had loosened his grip on the Styrofoam cup. To be honest Gideon had wondered if he had been more concerned than he should have. He had no clue why part of his brain had said protect him , when he had just met the other guy. Gideon hadn't been sure what to say next so he had taken another sip of his drink.
Looks down at his drink and down at his phone, hoping he didn’t get any texts unless it was from his brothers. "Yeah!" Not wanting to be called away for anything he was having his first relaxing day in many months. Taylor never really got the chance to sit there with another person and actually talk, he was enjoying himself there was no pressure to it. Trying to push the previous encounter from his mind to refocus on Gideon he was able to get that accomplished. Hearing him he smiled nodding. “I’d like that thank you, I’m actually on my motorcycle if you don’t mind riding it with me.” Gesturing to the helmet there next to him he did want to have some company and take a nice ride around the city. Having someone to actually offer to escort him home was rather new but he felt warm and fuzzy about it.
“Seriously there.” Taylor grinned widely and turned his head listening to the door chime over and over dang that Starbucks was getting busy. Lightly tapping his fingertips against the table, tilting his head a little. “In my profession sometimes I get stopped and asked for pictures, it’s worse overseas, I’m a model.” He softly spoke that last part, it was something different then what his brothers did for a living but seeing new places was a perk. Spotting Gideon’s grip tightening he hoped the cup wouldn’t end up busting and burning Gideon’s hands with hot liquid. Taking out an empty container he tucked the other pieces of coffee cake save two inside for later. He tucked the container into his backpack not wanting to leave it behind, that would suck. “Would you tell me about yourself?” Hoping he didn’t come off as nosey he was curious is all.
Gideon had been surprised to hear the other man agree to his little suggestion. The motorcycle idea had kind of made him feel rebellious to be honest. When he had been younger his parents had never let his sister and him near one. Part of him had been like , you should probably listen to them for multiple reasons. While another part of him had been like your thirty years old go for it and take a ride on the wild side. Of course the thrill of rebellion and his age hadn't been the only reason had been going for it. " Your welcome , sure sounds fun. I never ridden one before." The dark haired man had shared after he had taken the last sip of his drink. After the disappointing sound of the empty cup the tall framed man had placed the empty cup in front of himself on the table.
" Sounds overwhelming. How long have you been at? I heard horrors stories , so forgive me if i'm concerned and curious." The dark haired man had started as his fingers had played with his bracelet for a few seconds. " My job's very ordinary. I 'm a bartender." Gideon soon had added after his fingers had lingered on the beaded bracelet. Gideon was a little surprised that the other man had wanted to know more about him. It had seemed kind of abrupt and random since they had just met. But , Gideon had wanted to continue the taking chances trend that day. Plus , the other man before him had seemed harmless enough. " Um Sure what does your heart desire to know?" Gideon had asked a bit coyly after his fingers had left his bracelet's surface.
Taylor did want someone to bounce around with who he could just be himself with, since he didn’t get much of a chance too. Suggesting the motorcycle he had another helmet tucked away if he ever had someone to ride with him. He was on his tenth motorcycle since those didn’t last long since he lived longer then his old motorcycles did. Waiting to hear if Gideon was cool with seeing the city with him and unwinding since he still had some unwinding to do himself. “Cool, there’s a first time for everything, I have a Harley Davidson Fatboy it’s black and blue, huge wheels and low to the ground.” Tilting his head he saw the cup was empty and took out his phone and ordered Gideon another one, paying for it. Putting his phone away he grinned and saw a nice lady bring the drink over, thanking her. “You saved me so another for you.”
“Yeah it can be overwhelming lots of the time! For the past fifteen years! I’ve heard them too, the only good thing is seeing different places and having a nice nest egg when I’m ready to retire. It’s okay thanks for being concerned and I would be myself honestly.” Hearing that part he grinned wondering if Gideon knew his brothers or not. “Oh cool, my brother Teddy is a bartender he works at GP with our older brother Arelis.” Okay now he was worried even saying that would freak Gideon out. Pushing his thoughts into something else he spotted the bracelet thinking it was cool looking and wished he had one. “Cool bracelet. I wish I had one.” Taylor was bummed about it but he could maybe find his own sometime soon. Soon asking about Gideon he had his bottom lip in his mouth hoping he hadn’t offended his handsome he hoped new friend. “Anything and everything.” So pretty much everything then he would talk about himself and hopefully not scare Gideon away with the fact he was a demon.
" There definitely is. I need to take more risks to be honest." The dark haired man had mused before a barista had wondered over to table. Gideon had looked to her for a moment before she had placed a cup in front of him. For a few moments Gideon had been confused , but that had been cleared up when the other man had spoken." Aw , You didn't have to. Thanks." The dark eyed man soon had said graciously after he had gently grabbed the cup. Only a moment after pulling it toward him he had taken a large sip from it. " I glad to see your handling it well then. I think i'd probably have some kind of break down. But , the traveling part does sound really nice. If i had the money i'd love to do that some day , but i doubt i will." The dark haired had babbled a bit , before taking a second sip of his new drink. Meanwhile , in the back of his mind Gideon had worried that he had sounded like some boring poor guy.
" That sounds fun . I'd love to own my own place. Do you get free drinks then?" Gideon had tried to joke with a smile after he had rubbed his thumb and index finger together briefly and unconsciously. After hearing his own words he had mentally scolded himself for them. Upon hearing about his bracelet the man's eyes had ventured to it for a moment. " I made this one , so if you want i could make you one."Gideon had suggested with a smile after his dark gaze had returned to look at the brighter eyed man. For a moment after the words Gideon had wondered why his mind had been coming up with so many random offers that day. " Everything Wow.." Gideon had started with a shocked and lost look for few moments. " I don't know where to start to be honest. Your gonna have to give me a category or something biscuit." The nail polish clad man had added with some amusement and a bit of a chuckle laced in his tone.
Listening closely to Gideon he understood completely about what he was talking about at the moment. “That’s understandable, yeah it makes life interesting.” Seeing the nice lady come over with the coffee he gave her a nice tip as a thank you. Tilting his head he looked at Gideon but said what it was all about. “I wanted too as a thank you for the help you gave me and sitting here with me, you’re welcome.” When he ended up with a person sitting next to him there was usually strings attached too it. Taylor was happy for once there wasn’t any. “Yeah my brothers were worried for a while but not anymore, I have two little companions who travel with me, an adorable salt and pepper mini schnauzer puppy named Gianni and a beautiful Chinchilla Golden & White Teacup Persian Kitten named Sherlock. Gianni is little twin brother of Gizmo, Teddy’s little puppy.” His little fur babies were at the groomers with Gizmo that day getting all cleaned up. “Sometimes I had panic attacks before walking on the run in front of all those people, I got used to being out in front. Yeah that’s the best part to me is the traveling, my kitten and puppy are world travelers.” Hell Sherlock and Gianni had special passports with lots of stamps already. “You never know, where do you work? I mean my eldest brother needs another bartender at GP.” In fact about 3 more bartenders were needed, making a suggestion Taylor would talk to his big brother the next time he saw Arelis.
“Yeah, my brothers enjoy it, what would you call it? I get the non alcoholic drinks, different kinds are always there for me, I’ve honestly never had an alcoholic drink well ever.” Admitting that he waited to be laughed at, Taylor wasn’t much of a drinker period and it wouldn’t be wise either. He smiled and looked at Gideon’s thumb and index finger wondering what was wrong. His eyes went back to staring at the bracelet really wanting one for himself. “A lovely talent to have and yes I very much would thank you.” That made him happy he would have his own bracelet to wear and it would be just for him. Nodding quickly he wanted to know everything well if Gideon was cool with tell him that is. “Uh huh, I mean if you don’t mind that is, I don’t want to pry.” His full attention was on Gideon and nothing else. “Umm where are you from, birthday, hobbies, pets, music, likes, dislikes all that good stuff. About you, who you are.” He smiled and lowered his face a moment, so far he had been called biscuit by maybe one other person but that was just the female photographer when he needed to be relaxed before a shoot.
To be honest Gideon had been a little speechless on what to say to the other man. Gideon had known a few things about the situation though. He had been surprised for one thing. He hadn't remembered ever being spontaneous brought anything by someone he had just met. To be honest it had also made Gideon feel a little guilty. Despite that , feeling he had planned on keeping that feeling to himself. " Your Welcome once again and thanks again...." Gideon had started before a pause. " Next time drinks are on me." The raven haired man soon had added with a soft smile. After the words the man had taken another sip from his warm drink. " I feel yuh my sisters constantly worrying about me. But , she's gotten a little better about it over the years." Gideon had soon shared at the talk of family and worrying about each other.
" Aw , really. I wish my cat liked being outside. He's kind of afraid of it to be honest." Gideon had shared with a chuckle at the thought of the last time he had tried to bring his cat outside. " This is Leo." the dark eyed man had said suddenly after he had taken out his phone to show the other mab a picture of the cat. " Just a local bar in town , but i think their closing soon. So, feel free to put a bug in your brothers ear about me." Came the tall framed man's next reply after he had put his phone back into his jacket pocket. Gideon had been a little surprised that the other man hadn't had any alcoholic drinks before. Despite his surprise the statement had given him another idea to push himself out of his comfort zone. " What really? In that case i gotta make you a couple cocktails some time." Gideon soon had insisted with a smile after he had taken another sip from his drink once more.
" Are there any particular colors or charms you'd like on it.?" The phoenix witch had asked the other in regards to the bracelet making as the front door's bell had chimed once again. To be honest Gideon wasn't sure if he could call it prying . But , to be honest he hadn't minded all that much. Mostly because , it had not gotten weird or too personal. " The deep stuff huh. Wow you over stepped over the line." Gideon had tried to joke in an amused tone with a clear amused grin spread across his features. " Kidding. Well uh your already know about the crafts thing and cocktails hobby. Hm... um i was born on December eighth and music is usually what i'm in the mood for pretty much." The dark haired man had started for now as grew of men had stalked into the building to bother the barista.
Sipping on his huge frappe still he did want another one since hell he needed to eat quite a bit since he had a mega fast metabolism and worked out to remain ripped so he could have what he wanted. Being about halfway done he hiccupped and crossed his eyes. “Pardon me there.” Looking at Gideon he wondered what he was thinking about at the moment. “Penny for your thoughts.” Not trying to be nosey but he would tell something was up. “You’re welcome.” Hearing that he grinned brightly. “It’s deal.” Making a funny sounding happy noise drinking some more of his frappe listening at the same time. “That’s good! My eldest brother Arelis sometimes will sit very near the bar when I’m at GP and growl at people who get to close but my older brother Teddy gives the evil don’t even think about it eye to people.” Taylor didn’t have a significant other and with people knowing who his older brother was, it was hard. The moment he said Arelis some people scurried out, Taylor had his face in his hands looking around. “Geez not again.” He was not really happy anymore.
Trying to focus on better things he looked at Gideon. “That sucks, why is your cat afraid?” Leaning forward see the picture his frown turned back into a smile, liking the cat. “He’s a handsome feline.” Picking up his own phone he flipped through the pictures to his two cutie pies, showing Sherlock first. “This is Sherlock, she loves her catnip toys.” Showing off his adorable and sweet little woofer Gianni after. “This little pup is Gianni.” Listening again he would certainly be talking to Arelis very soon. “Yeah I think I know which one, sure can do that GP needs some more bartenders.” Wanting to be of some help and tucked his phone back into his pocket leaving the ringer still on. “Uh huh! Sometimes I watch Teddy mixing drinks at the club or at home but I’ve never had one of them. I’d like that!” Wow his first alcoholic drink and hopefully not end up on his ass after it.
“I really like blue, purple and silver please, maybe a cat and dog paw I mean if you have them.” Those were the colors he liked the best and well black as well but he had enough black clothing. Hearing the chimes going and going and going for a bit he wished it would take a break for a while. Waiting to hear about Gideon from his own mouth he grinned nodding. “Mmmhmm. Oops sorry about that!” Seeing it was more of an amused comment more than anything he didn’t feel embarrassed. “I wish I could have a fun hobby like that, that’s cool! I was born on Halloween in New Orleans but I was raised in Charleston, SC. I don’t remember what my birth last name is and honestly I don’t remember my mom and dad, neither does Teddy honestly our upbringing was very ummmm cruddy.” He didn’t cuss and would try to keep his mouth in check. “Would your significant other mind you sitting here with some umm demon please don’t scream at me?” Whispering the part about himself being a demon and prayed he wouldn’t be screamed at.
