[Sylar had to execute his plan perfectly. First he had to wait until Friday, which was a trial considering how he'd rather just hop back to Claire's world (His? Was it really his anymore?) and grab her any old time.

But he told her Friday, so he waited. Besides, she had to appreciate the humor of it. Even if she pretended not to when he sent her the video.

Next was waiting for the perfect moment to "borrow" Spike's world-hopping device. Swiping things from his roommates wasn't always easy, but he'd learned to be sneaky and subtle about it. (Or at least, he thought he did.)

Then it was a matter of finding Claire. Luckily, she was in Costa Verde. Easy as pie. Pie she'd soon be baking for him.

In the middle of his house-wide search for Claire, Miss Moppet found him, pouncing on his shoe. It was almost disappointing to see that she was slowly but surely growing up from her original kitten size. Picking her up off the ground, Sylar opted to wait on the living room sofa while entertaining the cat on his lap. Claire would reveal herself sooner or later.]

I'm going to be in the kitchen. [He calls to either of them like they even give a shit about his life. Him and Miss Moppet will just sit at the table and have deep conversations about life. She's the only one who understands him 8( ]

It's Sylar! Blueprints to kidnap me kind of come with the packaging! Maybe you should keep your weird magic worldhopping equipment in a safer place with him as a roommate! [ Yeah, she's pointedly ignoring his tantrum. ]

It was in my pocket, he must have lifted it with his telekinesis when I was watching my stories. We'll get it back, alright? I wouldn't let him hurt you.

Right, right, you're impotent now, and you like puppies and bunnies. I keep forgetting. [ She rolls her eyes and heads down the stairs the rest of the way, leaning in the doorway of the kitchen and pointedly not actually walking in. She looks back at Spike. ]

You should start Big Brother-ing his text messages. He threatened to go all BTK on me, I swear. Minus the K. Because I guess that's the consolation prize for not being able to pull the trigger -- get creepier and more creative. He's saying he won't hurt me now, but you can't trust him.

[Spike mulls that over. He remembered when he didn't have to weigh the options of saving the girl. He just did it and damn the consequences. But this was Sylar, one of his closest friends. He wouldn't hurt Claire, would he? Not now.

He follows Claire closely, starting to work out a plan for getting his lighter back.]


I know you won't, mate. Just wanna make cupcakes with the bit here, don't you?

[He tries to hide his anger in by letting Miss Moppet scamper around the table and playing with her.]

That's what I've been saying the whole time.

[ And now she's just looking at them like they're mentally deranged. Which ... they are. ]

Okay, wait. Let me get this straight. You kidnapped me so I'd cook for you?

[Spike's trying to save you here. Don't lump him in that mentally deranged category so quickly :c]

..Well. Answer the girl. [Oh yeah, getting his save on.]

[Nobody understands Sylar's hard life. He shrugs at both of them.]

I wanted to show her the new place, too. [said to the tone of SO THERE.]

This is completely insane. [ And that's all she has to say about that. She's stomping through the kitchen back to the living room now and she's just going to ... watch Spike's soap opera. ]

[Claire's safe for now, so that leaves him to talk to Sylar, he guesses. Could he opt out?]

Sylar, what's going on here?

Nothing's "going on here." I wanted to see Claire. [He snatches Miss Moppet off the table and gets up because next to Claire is exactly where he intends on going now. Fuck this heart to heart bullshit.]

Everything is wrong with you. [ When he moves next to her, she gets up off the couch and decides soap operas are no longer her thing. Getting away from Sylar is her thing. Maybe she'll barricade herself in Spike's room ... he should have a coffin or something, right? That sounded nice and safe. ]

[He nods for her to go back up the stairs, moving towards Sylar like he might a spooky wild animal.]

But she didn't want to see you, mate.

[He grits his teeth and gives Spike a very clearly irritated, impatient face. SHE IS GETTING AWAY GOD DAMN IT.]

So?

[ Obediently -- for once -- Claire scurries towards the staircase, climbing up to the top and ... just sitting. So that she can listen in like a creeper. It's her secondary mutation. ]

So, [He circles, blocking Sylar from the staircase.] you're going to leave her be. You put all this behind you, huh? That's why I believe in you. Are you gonna prove me wrong?

[He could easily shove Spike out of the way and bound upstairs, but he won't. BECAUSE HE'S A GOOD GUY NOW. Do you see that Claire? A GOOD GUY. He's really proud of himself for not ransacking her for ~answers~ right now. That's the best he can do. ]

I can't just leave her be. She's -- we're meant to be together.

[Miss Moppet hops out of his arms and runs away to the living room, because even she is done with this shit.]

[ And eventually Miss Moppet wanders around to the staircase and stumbles her way up into Claire's lap. But the staircase is like a mountain for her so it's like she rock climbs her way into Claire's lap. And Claire just holds her tight, resting her chin on the top of her little kitten head and continuing to listen in. ]

She doesn't seem to agree there. [He's never seen Sylar like this, and yeah he may have texted Peter about what the hell was happening. He'd be a lot more ~sympathetic~ to Sylar if he could get Claire out of the apartment.]

That's because she doesn't understand yet.

[ Unadulterated loathing reaching critical mass. Claire may very well explode with frustration. This dumb mentality of Sylar's is seriously grating on her nerves but she's just going to force herself to stay put for her own good. Self preservation -- better than pride. ]

Understand.. what exactly?

That we're supposed to be together. We're the only ones who can regenerate on our world. The only ones who can live forever. [that's ... probably not true but sylar's not going to admit that right now. it does not fit into his thesis 8| ] She can try to avoid me as long as she wants, but eventually we're gonna be all that's left. And then? She won't have any other choice.
