After the night of his trial, Kersen had texted Angelique to let her know that he was okay, but that she might not hear from him for a bit. He waited until he felt a little more under control, at least enough that he thought he could carry on a conversation without lapsing into a gooey pile of guilt.

When he got back in touch, he asked if she'd like to meet him somewhere, or if she'd like to come by the bar. She'd chosen the latter, and he was glad. There were multiple reasons why having the opportunity for privacy with her might be good. Not least of which being the conversation they were going to have to have, about vampires.

He was a little closer (though nowhere there yet) to his usual sparkly self tonight. Wearing leather trousers and a black shirt emblazoned with a swirling rose. He was behind the bar, mostly pouring wine.

Angelique was so relieved to hear from Kersen again she almost cried. Well, she did cry, just a little, alone in her room at Jade's. Then she washed her face, put up her hair, put on a bit of mascara and a touch of lip tint, and made her way directly to Jazzmin.

She arrived not very long after Kersen had contacted her, dressed in a pair of wide-legged trousers and a white button-down man's shirt, looking a little less decidedly feminine and a bit more androgynous. Immediately, Angelique made her way to the bar. If Kersen didn't come out to meet her, she thought she was probably going to push her way behind the bar to hug him, she was so relieved to see him alive and well.

With a burst of relief, Angelique practically flew at Kersen, wrapping her arms around his shoulders and squeezing him tight. "Thank god you're all right," she whispered, far more in danger of squishing the breath out of her own chest than out of Kersen, obviously. "I didn't know if I was going to find you missing a finger or an ear or a limb or something."

"I've been worried sick, but... I'm just glad to see you," Angelique told him, leaning back and placing both hands to either side of Kersen's face to get a good look at him. She'd never really understood the phrase 'a sight for sore eyes' before, but she did now. It was such a relief to see him well. "Is it... all over? All worked out?"

"That seems wise. Both of those thoughts seem wise," Angelique corrected herself, with a small wry smile. They had to talk in private, of course, but the wine would make it easier. "I'll listen. You know I will."

Angelique's hand was warm and tight in Kersen's cooler one, glad to have the chance to clasp it again. She followed him down, recalling the way from the delightful evening they had spent there together before. Tonight she was wearing much more sensible shoes. "You really spoil me," Angelique noted as they went. "I don't think I've ever paid for a drink here."

Angelique wondered what she'd said that was confusing, but whatever she needed to know, Kersen would tell her. He'd been honest so far... even when it hurt. "I suspect this is going to be one hell of a story," she observed, making her way over to the sofa and draping herself quite prettily just off center, so there was just the right amount of space for Kersen to sit beside her.

Angelique accepted the glass with a small, accepting smile. Judging solely on how cautious Kersen had been the last time they spoke, she'd sort of assumed not everything in the vampire world was rainbows and roses. "Tell me," she urged quietly, tilting her head to listen.

Angelique's eyes widened, horrified, as much for Kersen as for the girl. They had both been forced, a terrible violation that Angelique couldn't even imagine. She rested a hand on Kersen's leg in quiet sympathy, unsure what could possibly be said. "That's... I don't think there's even a word for what that is. Oh, Kersen..."

Angelique was having none of that. "I already told you, I'll always be on your side. You were violated, too." She spoke quietly, but with great certainty. "And this girl, if she's your... well, I'm on her side, too."

Angelique didn't know much at all about vampires, but she did know about learning to accept certain aspects of one's body that one couldn't change. "Is there... that is, I'd like to help." For Kersen, not for the girl, naturally. "You and she are in this together, though that's going to be difficult to accept."

"I would be delighted to explain to her what a kind man you are," Angelique promised him, laying her hand over his and squeezing gently. "Or anything else you need. You trusted me with this. I don't intend to sit idly by."

Had Kersen met her a few years ago, Angelique would have been hardly more than a child... but a child in dire need of someone like Kersen in his life. She smiled now, faintly, to think of it, but took care not to remind Kersen of the vast difference in their ages.

"I had no idea I was speaking to royalty," Angelique said warmly. "That sounds like something of a tale."

"So then, you... abdicated?" Angelique ventured a guess. It must be so, since there was a different authority now, who had done this to Kersen.
