Matthew pulled into his garage and let the elevator take over when the garage door closed. "What do you remember?"

Still clutching the veil, Aveira had her eyes shut. A minor headache was beginning to form. "Nothing. I fell asleep last night and when I woke up, I was there." She paused. "It was last night, wasn't it? I haven't been gone for more than this morning?" She couldn't have been gone for too long, or Matthew would have said something.

"Yes. I got up and you were still asleep. When I walked back to check on you, you weren't there."

"Did I worry you?" she asked, the ghost of a smile forming on her lips. She couldn't really smile, but she liked teasing him. It made her feel better.

"A little. For all I knew you were just gone. And you know about all of this." He gestured to his underground garage, but he meant the whole facility.

"I bet you have ways of keeping me silent," she teased, trying to get back to her normal self. Murders didn't usually bother her this much. Why was she so upset now? Maybe it was because Matthew had seen it. Her kills were usually done alone with quiet contemplation afterward. She wasn't upset because she cared about all those people. It wasn't even that their deaths bothered her...It was something else. Why was she so upset? If only she could figure it out, she was sure she'd feel better.

"I do. So do those I work for. Theirs are probably less pleasant. I kill for a living. They make sure you live as long as they can get you too..." He seemed very calm about this statement. In fact, he seemed calm about everything at the moment, despite having seen one of the most gruesome things out there minutes earlier.

Aveira shivered, not from fear, but from excitement. "I love it when you talk bad-boy to me," she said softly. The murders were still fresh in her mind. Suddenly she realized what had been bothering her so badly. Pulling out her knife, she ran it across the skin of her arm, splitting the flesh and releasing a torrent of blood. She sighed in release as the peppermint pain took over her mind for a few moments before the wound closed up. She'd been jealous of all those people she'd killed. It had been too long since her last session.

"Bloody hell!?" Matthew freaked out at first because of the cut, but then because of the rapid healing.

Aveira giggled and threw her arms around her boyfriend, careful not to hit him with the knife. "Surprised?" she purred. "You shouldn't be."

"Probably not, with you. But still... What the hell just happened?"

Giggling softly, she kissed his scar. "I wonder...maybe you should show me some of those ways you have of keeping me silent." She licked her lips slowly.

He frowned. "I'm not shooting you again. Also, you didn't answer me."

"Hmm? Oh, you mean the healing thing? That just happens when I get hurt." She shrugged. Aveira had no idea how it happened. It just did.

"Just happens? It can't 'just happen'..." Matthew took her hand and walked into the large room that almost acted as a hub to the other rooms.

"Well, it does," she argued as she followed him. Placing her dagger, veil, and blindfold on a nearby table, she turned to face him. "I'm pretty sure I'm not human, you know," she said in an airy voice.

"Well.. You've..." Matthew cleared his throat, "You've at least got human anatomy..." He thought for a moment. "It's not that hard to believe, is it? That you're not human..."

Aveira grinned lasciviously at his comment. "No, it isn't hard to believe. I'm surprised you accepted it so readily, though."

"With you, how could I deny it." He walked over to his desk and sat down on the computer. He opened a few files and programs. After a few moments a song began playing lightly in the background over speakers that could be heard but not seen. He then sat, staring at the screen. "They really want me to go to China..."

Aveira said nothing. She sat in the floor and crossed her legs. "I think," she said slowly after a long while, "that I will be unable to leave with you."

"Why's that?" His eyes moved down to her. "I'm not quite sure how long I'll be gone."

"I can't leave," she said simply. "I've tried. The further I try to go beyond the city limits, the more uncomfortable it gets. I can only go a few miles before I'm forced to turn back." She frowned, pushing her sad feelings away. "If you leave, I cannot follow."

"I can't always be here..." He frowned. "I do have to leave sometimes... I don't live the cheapest lifestyle... And I do have some rather large bills for power and such, and then the bribes to keep that hush hush since it doesn't look like my home should draw that much power."

Aveira sighed and lay down on her back. "You won't be coming back, then," she said. It was more of a statement than a question. She attempted to close off her emotions. She was able to keep them from her voice and face, but she couldn't manage to keep them from hurting her.

"Why would I not be coming back?" He looked at her, confident in his ability to not die on the job.
