It had been a subtle ripple, but it originated form a placement she was aware that Gabriella was located. It was enough of a spur to push her through, shifting forward and then back by mere moments just to put herself in the very room that two Summers girls stood about ready to go for the other’s throat. That could be accomplished with words, because when you loved someone, their words could cut just as well as any blade.

There was recognition in the older sister’s eyes when she turned them towards her. Her emotions changed gears, and then she spoke, admitting that she had seen her. That was still quite the idea, to be perceived by a Midgardian, whether they were human or evolved. Her ability to see had brought her to pause when deciding on which Summers to bring through. As capable as Alexandra was though, she was inhibited by the lack of her twin’s presence. On person was easier to hide away.

Alexandra looked from her, to her sister, then back again to be sure that she had their undivided attention.

She was aware that the confrontation between herself and her own sister was headed down a tightly twisted spiral, and that those caught up in the crossfire possessed the potential to perish in the wake. That was why she had chosen as she had.

Time, fate, they were funny things. Her sister’s interruption and attempt at manipulating what had been laid out rather than guiding it or nudging it, created an array of possibilities. And where one attempt at great alteration had shifted out of her favor, she had splintered time once more in another pass.

“Are you sure you saw what you think you saw?” Because visions were spotty and at times subjective to the angle they were observed from. And Fay’s presence changed everything. Gabriella existed in a point in time where Gabriel existed, where Joshua existed, where numerous others that were absent from her previous placement were -at the moment- still alive. Fay had gotten far in her first attempt, only to be brought low by someone she thought to keep close to herself.

“Death and destruction.” She considered the idea, it was very real, but it would persist wherever Fay was left to rake her desires across the world. “Is that not what has taken place in your own timeline? How many have you buried now?”

She couldn’t right anything until she stopped Fay. Even if she had to chase her across a hundred alternate universes that her sister created without consideration of repercussion.

“I don’t want this version of us to have to experience what we did.” Gabriella finally added in, her words for her sister, sincerity in her voice. “Our world wasn’t how it was supposed to be.”

And there was no point trying to reset it when Fay could go anywhere that she wanted.

Was she… Lexie just looked at Sky with an incredulous look on her face. “Yes. I’m sure that I saw my sister getting swept up in a massive explosion.” She snapped. Her visions were always accurate, always. What she saw would come to pass unless they changed it. There was always a way to circumvent her visions.

Rubbing her face in frustration she wanted to smack that self-righteous bitch in the face. How can she think that Lexie would have mistaken that vision for something else? She had been focussing on Gabby in the now, not in the past.

“We buried too many, okay?” She ground out in frustration. “But that’s not the point. I did not see what would pass in our timeline.” Because there had been people present in that vision who had already been dead. People they had buried.

Lexie looked back at her sister when she threw in her opinion. How she didn’t want their mini versions to go through the same thing. How their world wasn’t supposed to be like that. She could hear the sincerity, saw it even in a nice shade of turquoise surrounding her sister.

She took a step towards Lexie, eyes narrowing. “You know, I’m all down with that. Being the god damn hero, but I’ll be damned to see you get hurt in the process.” She put the wall back up, she was done. She felt trapped, ganged up and she needed help. And she knew exactly where to get it. The theatre.

“You know my visions. You know how accurate they are.” She took a step towards the balcony.

“I’m not going to let you die over this, Gabby.” Lexie told her sister. Another step. “I won’t.” And with those final words she walked out the balcony doors and took off, flying towards the theatre and get help in saving her sister.

There was quite the dollop of tension in the room, and it had nothing to do with her or Jay at the moment, and everything to do with the two women standing somewhat before her. She wasn’t even sure if the eight feet between the pair did anything to lessen the stifling sensation. Lexie seemed almost offended that Sky had asked her if she was sure she saw what she thought she saw and Gabby bit at the inside of her lip to keep from adding further fuel to the mounting fire.

Her sister flared angry and irritated, Sky remained almost impassive, sometimes that was maddening, so she understood the effect it had on Lexie.

She understood her sister’s concern, even when she turned her attention back to her and snapped off her decision. Lexie’s visions were often correct, yet with enough lead way, they could at times be altered. What as the point of having visions if not to utilize them or change their course? She suddenly wondered if people were intended for their particular mutations, if it was something decided by fate, and her gaze shifted briefly towards the slightly daintier woman in the room.

Lexie stole her focus once more when she declared that she was not about to let her run her life into the ground just to spare their other versions. She wanted to argue that that was her decision to make, that she was an adult and could decided for herself which direction to proceed down. Instead, the other redhead backpedaled out of the room towards the balcony-where she assumed that she had stumbled in through-and then she was gone.

Her thoughts kicked into overdrive, trying to pick apart everything that Lexie had offered and tried to piece it together right in her head. Lexie had already started having visions, and she was apparently sure that they did not pertain to the timeline they had left behind. There would be plenty to discern that from, like the possible presence of Gabriel in something she had seen.

“You all share a similar manner of temper.” Sky spoke, her voice as calm as ever. “That’s Gabriel’s genetic gift to each of you, the ability to spark at a moment’s notice.” The other woman turned slightly, then hesitated. “Remember, though, how you felt within the first few hours of your own arrival. She hasn’t had quite the time lapse to agonize over your absences as you had theirs, but it doesn’t diffuse the cutting edge of it.” Sky glanced slightly towards the balcony. “I’ll see you in two days.” And then she shifted. That was the only way that she could think to describe it. She literally shifted into the fabric of reality. Something about time manipulation. She was kind of there, and the not at all.

Pretty soon, this timeline and the one she had left were just going to bleed right into one another.

How many of them were there, and how many more potentially were going to arrive?

She rubbed at the back of her neck as she sighed. Then she turned about against the foot of the bed and climbed up onto it, rising up onto her knees as she looked the winged man there over. Moving herself back towards him, she set her hand against his shoulder and urged him onto his back. Her thoughts spun out a dozen different scenarios and she pressed a kiss against his chin. That was all she managed as she lifted her left leg and set it back against his right thigh, then she reached for the sheet she had haphazardly draped across his lap.

A kiss against his sternum as she set her hands near his waist and used them as anchors to push herself lower. She wrapped her hand with care around his cock, sliding her fingers lower and wrapping her lips around the rest of him. She could push her sister out of her head that way when her brain wanted to focus on him, the feel of him against her tongue, against the back of her throat. The physical stimuli was plenty enough to flip her thoughts off of anything but the feel of him.
