Grell stood awkwardly in front of William's orderly desk, shifting his weight from one leg to the other, letting his hip lean to the side flamboyantly. He bit his lip lightly so as his teeth wouldn't draw blood as his green eyes cast downwards to gaze almost shyly down at the shiny toes of his heeled shoes.
The supervisor studied his coworker with a cold gaze, "You boycotted your paperwork today in order to go see that demon again." He accused in a matter-of-fact tone, his emotions well hidden as usual.
Grell looked up, "Oh~ That's what this is about? I was afraid that I somehow broke another silly little rule without knowing about it~" he giggled, wiggling his hips, "Yes, I did go see dearest Sebas-chan today. But I hardly think it's fair to be accused of ignoring my paperwork! I got most of it done before you called me up here, and I would have actually gotten it done on time today to if you hadn't!"
"That is not the point! You have no reason to be running off

Grell sighed and curled his legs up under him as he sat on the small sofa in William's office, his paperwork sitting on the coffee table as he held a clipboard and used it as a make-shift desk, scratching his signature across each page. He had a long boring day without any collections, but for once he preferred it that way. After discovering what Claude had done to him, the red reaper had become paranoid about being alone, and he only left his lover's side when he absolutely had to. Having to go out to reap souls meant he had to be out around London alone, and the idea of such a task was terrifying.
He felt as if he had become absolutely pathetic. Being so needy and overly clingy to William more-so than he already had been...he even caught himself jumping when he saw a stray spider sitting in a web, when he had never been bothered by the small arachnids before. But he tried not to think on it. William was being understanding of his newly developed qui

William's afternoon classes went without incident and he decided to stop in on Grell's to make sure the demon was not making any mischief for him...or vice versa.
Grell's last class of the day had ended, but a few students straggled behind, asking for help with their footing in the dance they were learning. He had two of the three students partner up with each other and go through the dance wile he tapped out the beat with his hands. The soft dance music playing on the gramophone filling the classroom with a slow melody mixed with the soft crackles of white noise from the vinyl record.
"Very good, just move your left foot out a little more and remember to keep your toe pointed. Yes, like that." He smiled, then turned to the young man who was partner-less, "Wile they work on that, why don't you show me what you have to work with?" he smiled, beckoning the young man closer to step in as his dance partner. They waited for the right cue in the music and began to dance, Grell loo

Ronald frowned, a bad feeling running down his spine and settling heavily in the pit of his stomach as he approached the Trancy Gardens along side Eric and two other reapers he barely knew. He had just gotten back to the office when he was approached by the group and asked if he had any more collections that day. Upon answering no, he was handed a file. One that was rarely seen at the dispatch, but always meant something horrible was going to happen. He himself had never seen such a file in person, but he knew what it was once he opened it.
A to-die list containing a single entry, void of a name, picture, or details on the death. Only a location typed neatly across a single line, the rest to be filled out later. Such a file was always handed off to a group of reapers, rather than one, as normally, a demon was involved, sometimes more than one...
A fellow reaper was about to die.
And, only two reapers were unaccounted for...Grell Sutcliff, and William Spears. Both
UnexpectedThe weather this time of year was always wretched, and Grell wasn't particularly fond of reaping in the dead of night-- not during the winter season, anyhow.Unexpected1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
"I'm damn near shivering my bloody knickers off," he mumbled, wrapping his arms around himself and hunching his shoulders up so as to bury his chin deeper into his scarf. "Must they go dying at the coldest moment of the night?"
Will didn't answer, though he did lean forward over the bridge's railing, looking down at the boat of revelers passing beneath them on the Thames.
"Such a silly holiday," Grell scoffed. "So sentimental and rife with clichéd idolatry."
Will kept his eyes on the boat, not looking at Grell as he spoke, his tone flat. "You enjoy receiving gifts, though, do you not?"
Grell started. "Well of course I do. But I deserve to receive them every day!" he sidled closer to Will so that their arms touched, and he paused for a fraction of a second, taken aback by ho
