shatteredservice: Dia-Pair (Pair)

The room is plain and fairly empty.  A few hours before, it had been a small study, but Set and Dia have cleared all of that stuff out and made it a much more fitting arena to face The Beast in.  After all, he is going to be violent enough when he realizes what they are going to try to do to him.  It probably isn't a good idea to give him access to anything that could be used as ammo.

Dia watches as Set paces around the room checking the various wards that he placed on it when they moved in.  They aren't anything special--just a few detection runes--but they were never meant to do anything like keeping The Beast in check.  The Beast himself has seen to it that Set can't do anything like that.  That is why Bazett is stopping by.  She doesn't have to try and work around The Beast to do her work; she can just do it.

Set flops down into a cross-legged sit in the middle of the floor and sighs, "I think that's it until she comes.  Hopefully, it won't be too long.  I think he's starting to wonder.  I'm trying to distance myself, but..."

Dia nods, fingering the capped needle in his hand, "I'm really sorry about this.  I hate having to do it."

"Don't be, it has to be done and this is the safest way.  Just promise me something," Set gives him a hard look.  "Make sure you make the most of this.  You need to talk to him.  I doubt he's going to let us get away with this very often.  Heck,  maybe not ever again.  This might be the only chance we get."

"I-I know," Dia's voice wavers a moment and then he steadies himself.  "I am preparing myself.  It's going to hurt, but hopefully it will be the first step toward making it so it doesn't hurt so much anymore."

Set smirks and motions for Dia to come and sit with him.  When Dia joins him, he wraps his arms around his lover, "That's my Baby!  You have no idea how good it makes me feel to hear you say that."

Dia blushes slightly, but doesn't reply.  Instead, they wait for Bazett to again make her way into their home.

Dia watches as his blue-haired lover fidgets in the chair across the room from him and it doesn't surprise him when Set gives up sitting again and is back on his feet wondering around the room a few moments later.   His partner is excited, but also nervous and Dia can't help but smile just slightly when he realizes how silly it is that Set of all people is acting like a young boy waiting to go out on his first date.

Bazett should be arriving anytime now.  Despite the fact that she can't remember him, Set is determined to help her and that honestly doesn't surprise Dia.  He knows very well just how much she means to Set memory or not.

Dia is just worried about what might happen with them both together.  Set had blown off how easily The Beast had been upset by her and the things they had discussed, but Dia can't do that.  He has a hard enough time keeping The Beast in check by itself, but when it is enraged by another Berserker?

The thought is enough to terrify even one who as seen as much as Dia has over the years.

"Set, come here," Dia motions to the area in front of the chair where he is setting.  "Sit."

Set raises an eyebrow in question, but does as he is asked. 

Once his lover has seated himself on the floor in front of him, Dia pulls his partner's long blue hair loose of its binding and starts braiding it.  It might be a silly thing, but he knows that not only is it calming for him, it is also calming for Set as shown by how the other man shuts his eyes and finally seems to settle down.

The sound that slips from Set's lips a few moments later, might or might not have actually been a purr.

This is how they pass the time as they wait for Bazett to arrive.  Dia can't help but hope that she will be the first link in a chain that will make things safer for all the servants who are still living in the world.

And perhaps also the first step to making Set a happier and more stable person again.
