Uh, hi! This is Ca- I mean Chuck Shurley, just- Chuck, sorry. [Indistinct fumbling noises] Leave a message after the beep and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks?

[She had seen his dream, along with the rest. Elaine Belloc did not dream but she knew things and there was a limit to the knowledge she could willingly ignore. The visions were too predominant and strong enough to earn her monitoring scrutiny. There were many things that kept her from talking to Chuck after she saw his nightmare. She had business with Destiny and Dream of the Endless to seal her choices. She had also known that he was probably busy -- She wasn’t the only dream-walker who stumbled upon his Cathedral of holy rust.

She visited him a day after the nightmare, walking towards the Purgatory with the hands in her pockets, hoping to catch him during one of his break. All right, she cheated -- She knew exactly when that was what for sure.]


[He was just coming off break, wiping his hands and landing his chair, wheeling out from behind the bar. It was nice, incredibly nice, to be busy and active out of the house, to see people and have something to do and think about other than his own life and the girl who helped build that place.

When he saw Elaine, he froze for a second, expression tightening. It wasn't that he didn't like seeing her, but he thought he knew why she was here and frankly, he had had just about all of the sharing-and-caring time he could take.]


[She stopped on her tracks when he froze. She hadn't meant to startle him or ruin his mood. She waved at him, awkwardly before renewing her approach. He didn't seem in a talkative mood, which was fine, she would not press him to talk to her about it.]

I would ask how are you, but --

[She trailed off, glancing at him apologetically.]

I can guess. Um, so how long do the breaks last? I was going to invite you to the watch a film or something like that.

I have forty five minutes. I get another break and a fifteen minute tonight.

[Ignoring the rest of it. This is healthy.]

You came all the way out here just to see me? [He quirks a thumb at the stage.] There's more exciting stuff here.

Not enough time. Well, we can watch a tv show. What was your favorite one?

[She can make a dvd out his favorite season.]

I'm avoiding all the exciting stuff. [Because she wants to interfere.]

[He pushes open the door to the back, to the back rooms with dressing rooms and a staff lounge.]

I can't just take off somewhere and watch something.

[Mostly, he's just tired. He wants to know why she's here.]

[She is about to offer the option of watch it here. She can make that happen too, but he seems to want answers.

Elaine just asks the world's most obvious question.]

Are you okay?

[He really, really hates that question. Why are people asking him? This isn't his loss, Gabriel's the one who isn't okay, Jinx is the one who needs help. It's not right. It's not fair. He wants to shake everyone who keeps acting so fucking worried about him.]

I'll live, you know? At least I still have my health.

[Such as it is.]

[He should know she can't ask Gabriel or Jinx. Because then her resolve will evaporate and would try to 'fix' things.

By fixing things will mean lead to something worse eventually.]


[She misses a beat.]

I talked to Morpheus -- to see if he can fix this dreaming situation without my involvement.

[She talked to Destiny too.]

[Morpheus. The Dream Lord. He shouldn't be talking about this here. Not here- this is his work, where he mixes drinks and watches girls and Kurt dance. Not here.]

I guess my visions will come back now that the deal is off.

[She just wants him to know and to reassure him that this will not last long.


Are you ready for them?
