Sebastian could merely agree with both of them – the boss really was in a bad mood lately but the boy had been really fast with paperwork and a great help outside of the station as well so when it came to his skills, the Chief shouldn’t say no to him.
And, the man was aware too, that their boss knew something about Ciel and his activities. Something he hadn’t asked about yet but probably he should soon.
That the young male came back looking so upset didn’t necessarily need to mean something and so the ravenette wasn’t truly on alert when he walked back to his desk. When even after another second the smug expression wasn’t back on the boy’s face though, Sebastian began to wonder if the Chief really had sent him away.
Head cocking to the side, the male curiously looked at the other. “A little cat place?”, he repeated questioningly. Now why would the boss demand for such a thing? That was odd, at least a little. But in the end it didn’t matter to him anyway. Eyes glimmering in delight the man gave a quick nod.
“If the Chief will actually let me leave the station I will come with you, of couse.”, he replied, sounding a little too eager for his own liking but he just couldn’t help it. That was, apartment from serious crimes, the perfect job for him. “When does he want us to leave?” Looking at the clock he saw that there was some time of his shift left but he also thought that surely Ciel wouldn’t start working exactly now and immediately.
“Someone has been taking cats and bringing them back dead. But calm down, we’re going tomorrow. And I already asked the Chief and he said it would be fine if you went, since I still can’t drive one of those cars.” He pouted. “I want to drive one.”
“You sound like a little kid on Christmas that didn’t get what he wanted.” Joe replied, scoffing. “You will drive one sooner or later. You can’t go long without driving one but since Sebastian is your partner, it would probably be later.”
Ciel sent a mocking glare over towards Sebastian but a smile played on his lips. “Your fault.” He teased, easing into his chair now. He bit onto his lip and drifted off into thought. Now that he was working back at the station he was going to have to let his father know. He wouldn’t be too happy with him, not after what he had just done. Yet, he had to tell him sometime. If not and they just found out, not only would he be in big trouble but so would everyone else.
Sighing, he closed his eyes and relaxed. Ciel decided that he was going to wait for Sebastian to be done with work before heading home. Even though he wasn’t suppose to touch him or do anything, he was glad just have have him near. He counted the minutes until he could kiss him again.
Ciel wanted to mentally slap himself for doing that though. He really did sound like someone who was in love and a girl in that matter. But he just shrugged that off. Yet when it was time to go, he couldn’t help but to jump up from his desk. “Well would you look at the time. Come on, Sebastian. Lets go.” He took his hand and almost dragged him out of the office. When no one was watching, Ciel turned around and placed a kiss on his lips. “I’ve been waiting forever to do that.” He chuckled but the moment didn’t last long when he notice someone walking down the hall now. “Lets go.”
They walked outside and Ciel managed to park right next to Sebastian’s car. But something seemed off to him and thats when he noticed a man leaning on his car. Ciel’s heart skipped a beat as his face went pale white. They approached the men who were smiling like they had just won the jack pot. “Ciel, why don’t you introduce me to your friend?” The man spoke.
“Sebastian…this is Vincent…my father.”
That forced a deep frown to appear on his forehead. He didn’t like the sound of that at all, but surely they would find out about this awful person soon and make it stop, that just wouldn’t do.
“I could offer to let you turn on the siren when you’ll be a good little boy till then.”, Sebastian countered, not being able to suppress the laugh that followed. For a change he had to agree Joe, when something wouldn’t work like the young male wanted that he could be quite sulky, but unlike their colleagues he himself found that to be rather cute. Not that he would ever tell Ciel that.
The room grew quiet once again, the men finishing their work but every now and then – which was more often than not – the ravenette would cast a short glimpse over to the boy, joyful that he had decided to stay there to, certainly, wait for him so they could head home together. That Ciel looked thoughtful was to be expected, he had just gotten his old job back and so far the man couldn’t tell if it had been his own choice, or if their fathers knew something about it, too.
Though, this wasn’t the place to talk about that.
Minutes ticked by and in the very second the clock hit 4 the younger stood, looking expectantly at him as though he was already half an hour too late. Giving a short wave to the colleagues who stared at them Sebastian let himself be quickly led out of the office, frowning when he noticed that there still was a file he actually needed there but he just shrugged it off, could be done the next day, too.
Ciel came to an abrupt stop, turning and before he even knew it he was drawn into a short but eager kiss. The rest of the way out he couldn’t bite back the smile that had formed on his lips.
That was until they got outside.
The boy suddenly looked sick and when he looked into the direction their cars were parking he also knew why.
He hadn’t seen this man often – and also had he been away for many years but the similarities to Ciel were undeniable. With slow, wary steps Sebastian followed the younger, not liking the expression on the man’s face and his eyes narrowed slightly when he spoke.
There wasn’t much he wanted to say, nor did he want to have something to do with Vincent generally and so he didn’t offer him his hand to shake when they were introduced to each other. He merely gave a small, acknowledging nod, eying him carefully.
What did he want there? Hadn’t his son be with him only a few hours ago?
Instead of concentrating too much on the unwelcomed visitor he rather focused his attention on Ciel, the urge to pull the boy closer strong but that wouldn’t be a wise thing to do.
“What do you want?” Ciel glared, gritting his teeth. “Our conversation is done. Unless you came here to say sorry.” The boy scoffed. “Like that would be true, bastard.” He wanted to leave so badly but since his father was blocking the way, he couldn’t get past and he didn’t want to have another fight in front of Sebastian.
“I just came by so I could meet your friend.” Vincent smiled, but Ciel could see right through it. It wasn’t rule and he was definitely planning something. “You’re Sebastian, Dave’s son, am I correctly? Ah, I haven’t seen you in ages, my, how you’ve grown. What are you? Six foot, about?” He was making small talk to get Sebastian to like him. But Vincent had no clue that Sebastian knew about everything.
Ciel was ready to block Sebastian from all his words. He didn’t want Sebastian to be exposed to this. He never wanted him to meet his father, it was the last thing he wanted. But now, since the moment is here, they had to bare with it. The only good thing about the situation, was that Sebastian’s father hadn’t shown up. Yet, little did Ciel know, he was about to eat his words.
Foot steps came up from behind. Ciel quickly glanced to see who it was and his heart dropped. It was Dave, Sebastian’s father. He wanted to ask why they were doing this, what their purpose what? Had they found out about them, what they had done? Millions of questions raced through his mind but he had to force them away. Right now he had to make sure Sebastian was safe and they didn’t harm him. He also had to figure out a way to get out of all this.
“It’s funny how hard we tried to keep the two of you away from each other, yet, here you are, together.” Dave chuckled, shaking his head. “I guess we should have kept a better watch on Ciel.” He pointed to him, grinning like a mad man. “You. You little bastard just loved to play games on us so you could get close to my son. I didn’t want you to. I wanted him away from all of this but you wouldn’t listen. And you know what we do to people who don’t listen.” Dave pointed to Ciel’s covered eye. “You should know well enough about that.”
Ciel’s body jerked but he held back from jumping on the man. Once again, it was his fault but he knew better now. He wasn’t going to go tell Sebastian to run. He wasn’t going to send him off again like he had last time. Ciel was just going to stand by him and smile. “Oh why yes I do. I don’t think we need a repeat of that. But if i am correct, which I am. Wasn’t it you who said that ‘you couldn’t keep anyone away from what they were born into’? Sebastian is your son. He was born into this crazy life, you couldn’t keep him out for long.”
The look on the mans face almost made Ciel laugh. He heard a chuckle from behind. Vincent wasn’t one to hold back. His chuckle soon became louder. “That’s my son.” But once he said that, Ciel threw a deadly glare at him. “I mean,” He cleared his throat. “he has a point.”
“Now that we have that cleared, can we go now?” Ciel grabbed onto Sebastian’s hand tightly, staring at both of the men then he looked up at Sebastian. This must be hard for him since this was the first time he was seeing his father in such a long time. Ciel wasn’t sure what he would do if they stayed there any longer.
