She'd made the right choice.

She was the one who'd dumped him.

She knew that they were better as friends, given that was all he seemed able to give her.

It still felt like her stomach was going through a paper shredder whenever she thought about it.

So Sunny's coping mechanism to ignore the shredding inside her was to throw all of her free time into researching how to help Anael. If she was thinking about magic, she didn't have to think about emotions and how much they sucked and boys and how they were no good and how much she didn't want to talk to anybody about this utter failure and--

And anyway, it made her behave. She had already pulled in Faizel on this project, and she'd be stupid to cut him out now. Anael was more important than her shredding. Felix... well, what good would making things more awkward for him do? So she continued to text Faizel about this. But not about anything else yet.

Meaning that right now she was sitting outside a cafe, researching Afro-Caribbean religions--the ones that blended the folk beliefs of West Africa with Christianity--to see if that might give her some indication of what to do with her own power. As an added layer of making it difficult for her mind to wander, she took notes in Igbo.

Of course, it also meant that anybody who got curious wouldn't have any clue what she was actually writing about, and that wasn't a bad idea either.

She'd made the right choice. So why was she trying so hard to keep from curling up and dying?

Em liked the little cafe. Independently owned by brother and sister twins, it had more life and variety to it than another chain on every corner, and they didn't mind if she read fortunes at one of the outdoor tables as long as she bought a coffee or something while she was there. They had a chicory blend three days a week, for her true café au lait cravings, and their pastries were delicious.

She hadn't expected to run into Sunny there, although Em couldn't have said why not. Sunny looked deep in homework, so Em went in rather than stopping first and came out a couple of minutes later with her coffee and two scones still warm from the oven to share. She set one plate down in front of Sunny, but wouldn't go so far as to take a seat. "Study fuel, or company, whichever you need more," she said, "and hi."

Sunny didn't usually hold back when it came to things she didn't want, so Em resisted the impulse to ask if she was sure, and pulled out the chair opposite instead. "Sorry. Didn't mean to startle you. I could tell you were deep into what you're working on, but I guess I didn't realize how much."

"Sometimes you have to step away to stop going around in circles and see clearly. And sometimes what you need's a fresh pair of eyes. Anything I can help with?" Sunny had said it wasn't homework. "Or would it be better to really take a break for a bit, talk about something else?"

"I'm better at research than you might expect for a middle school drop-out. Not that convent school really prepared me for angelic... anything." Certainly not for seeing an angel's future, or going flying around London with him.

"I had to come to London for that."

Danny had his hands full as he stepped out of the cafe, not sure what to do with the extra coffee he'd somehow wound up with after they'd made his order wrong the first time. He'd wanted skim milk (he was trying to be healthier, for Hex's sake), and didn't know what to do with the whole milk latte they'd insisted he keep. He was tempted to toss it, (but that was wasteful), or drink it (but that was a lot of empty calories)... And then he spotted her. Sunny.

They'd spoken in the past, and she'd been quite nice. ...If there was one thing he could do with, it was more friends.

Boldly, he made his way over.

"Sunny, wasn't it?" he asked, looking down at the two coffees, and then holding the whole milk latte out in offering. "Don't suppose you fancy a latte? I, um, sort of have an extra," he said with a gentle laugh.

"Danny," he said, not looking offended, but feeling a bit guilty when she jumped. "It was forever ago, I was a bit sloshed, you'd just decked some wanker... If you're busy, I'll leave you be, but, uh, please, take the coffee. I'll only drink it if you don't, and I'm trying to be healthier. Skim milk and all that bollocks."

"No, it's whole. They messed up my order, but insisted I take both," Danny explained, sitting down since she didn't seem to be chasing him off.

"Homework?" he asked, nodding at the notebook.

From: [personal profile] whispersoflove
Anael was fairly well attuned to the exact flavour of the emotions of those he loved particularly, but when their emotions were quite as strong as Sunny's were right then, they felt like a beacon he noticed from two blocks away. When he finally reached her, he took a chair beside her and put a hand on her back, his features full of concern. "What's wrong?"

His arm across her back held her close, his other hand settling on the side of her face, thumb stroking her cheek soothingly. "I've got you," he told her quietly, the words just for her, his embrace even warmer for the sliver of his Grace he let seep out to soothe the ragged edges of her pain.

Anael quietly asked for a glass of water from a passing waiter, without changing his embrace at all. "I've got you," he told her again; she might be done sobbing, but the pain she felt kept twisting inside him, caught as it was in her love.

From: [personal profile] harrowgate
Usually, Sunny was the one who appeared in Felix's path when he was out and about, and so he was privately pleased when he spotted her first this time. He took the long way around and acquired an pleasantly enormous chai tea and a pita sandwich for his lunch, then made his way directly over to Sunny's table.

"Studying, darling? Or something more interesting?" Felix asked by way of greeting, swinging out an available chair for himself. There he paused, and lifted his brows in silent question. He might be a presumptive ass most of the time, but he wouldn't actually impose himself on her table if she didn't want him there.

With permission, Felix set his things down and folded himself into the chair, though he settled himself sideways, his over-long legs crossed to one side of the table. "Mm, yes, Anael," Felix confirmed, and he pronounced each syllable of the self-described angel's name with precision.

"My resources will not be very useful. I checked. We officially stopped believing in angels around the time of Henry the Eighth, believe it or not. Anything we might have known was shoved into the Ar... in storage, essentially, and has been crumbling to dust for five centuries."

Felix knew a thing or two about wielding your voice and your dialect for effect (or in his case, affect), and he only gave her a small, approvingly amused smile.

"Do you believe he's an angel? White gown, halo, harp, and all?"
