Darian stepped off the gym floor and showered quickly, disturbed by Jenn. Last night had brought him no closer to figuring out why she was pushing him away, though he'd begun to realize his body's response to her was endangering his own resolve not to be involved with anyone else ever again.

He retrieved the bag with the heads of the Others from a locker and exited into the hall.

The Black God awaited him. Jonny looked wary, the same look every Guardian and vamp alike gave him.

"These are for you," Darian said, handing off the bag.

Jonny accepted it and opened it. He frowned.

"You asked for a daily report," Darian reminded him. "This was yesterday's catch."

"I didn't think you could do it."

"Of course I can."

"Give these to the vamps on duty," Jonny said. "I had my fill last night. Where's Jenn?"

Darian reclaimed the bag. Jonny's gaze went upwards, as if he could see through the ceiling to the second floor.

Towards Jenn's room.

A different instinct went off in Darian's mind, one that recognized the look on the Black God's face as being another sign Jenn was in more trouble than expected.

"I hope you know better than to hurt a certain Guardian," Darian said.

Surprised, Jonny's gaze returned to him.

Darian crossed his arms.

"I wouldn't hurt her," Jonny said. "Ever."

"That's not what your mind tells me," Darian baited.

"First Xander, now you." The Black God's face flashed bright red. "This is my world. Who are you to interfere in my world? Jenn is mine. Damian said so. She's mine."

"Jenn is not yours. I don't have the pretty little boundaries you do, boy," Darian replied. "I'm the one person on this planet who can fuck up your world."

"I'm the Black God. My domain is every evil thought and deed. So what if I use what I am to get what I want from her? I have a free pass now. I can do and take and be whatever I want!"

"Yes, you can, but a woman like Jenn would choose death over what you'd do to her. You will not hurt her."

Jonny stared at him. Darian watched him, gauging the emotions crossing his features. The Black God turned and walked away. Not entirely satisfied, Darian started in the opposite direction. He'd keep an eye on Jenn between his missions to kill Others, even if she didn't seem to want anything to do with him.
