Jo was curious about how exactly Godric saved Eric’s life, but she had the feeling that Eric wouldn’t want to tell her. Whether it be because she would understand the maker/progeny relationship or because he was too proud. She would just let it slide and be glad that Godric had someone as loyal as Eric by his side for so many years; no matter how he may have gotten there.
She chewed on her lower lip for a moment. Jo knew that Eric already knew she wasn’t a normal human, but she also knew he didn’t know exactly what she was. “There are anti-discrimination acts for women, but um…not for mutants.”
Eric wasn’t sure what to expect but he hadn’t been keeping a very open mind. He already knew that Jo was not a human but Godric had refused to tell him what she was, saying that it was her business to tell Eric when she felt good and ready. First his face fell and he refused to look at Jo while he processed that information. He had only heard of mutants before. The supernatural world used to consider shifters and weres mutants for a while until they thought themselves too special to be lumped into that one big category. Eric already hated shifters and weres. He grimaced to himself. Now Jo and her entire relationship made no sense to Eric again, just as it had in the beginning. It seemed to him as if any ground they had just made was simply erased. “What the fuck?” he spat.
IC fact: Eric used to play a private game when he sat on the throne chair at Fangtasia giving names and secret lives to everyone who walked through the door.
OOC fact: I just quit my job as a waitress and I used to do the exact same thing xD
IC fact: Eric respects Godric the most. He takes his advice no matter what and makes decisions based on Godric’s teachings.
OOC fact: Godric was by far the greatest thing about S2 imo.
IC fact: Eric developed a slight fear of wolves ever since his family was murdered. The sound of a wolf howling drove him crazy.
OOC fact: I just graduated college a few weeks ago!
Jo blinked at Eric. “How I carry myself?” She asked softly. She thought about it and nodded. “I guess you’re right.” Godric had the most amazing, confident air about him, while Jo was timid and always in the background. “It’s nice that you were there for stand up for Godric, whether he needed it or not. You really seem to love him.” For the shortest of moments Jo was jealous of the relationship Eric had with Godric.
“Me? I’m a personal assistant over at Stark Industries.” She smiled a little once more. It was clear Jo was proud of her job. “I work for Pepper Potts. I um,” Jo’s smile fell, “I was fired from my last job because of what I am.”
“I am not saying to be arrogant,” he warned her, “there is already plenty enough of that between the two of us here,” he muttered about himself. Eric knew that he was arrogant but it usually never got him into too much trouble. Not since he had grown so old and powerful at least. He did not particularly want to talk about his relationship with Godric with Jo. In his mind, that was the most sacred relationship he would ever have. “Yeah,” he nodded, “he saved my life.”
Eric had heard of billionaire Tony Stark a few times before. His company was massive. Even all the way in rural Louisiana he could be found on the news. That was an impressive human, Eric had to admit. “Because of what you are?” Eric was confused, “don’t they have anti-discrimination laws for that?”
Sigrid smiled, nodding. “Ja, ska vi. Vi har mycket att fira denna kväll.” She leaned up and kissed his cheek and then the other, heedless of the crimson tear-stains. “Led vägen, min bror.”
Eric smiled again. Seeing his little sister was easily one of the best things that had ever happened to him in over 1,000 years. They had so much to talk about, so many things Eric wanted to ask her and to tell her. “Ja, låt oss gå.” He felt so full, so happy. Eric turned and began walking, leading her towards his house. He couldn’t wait to ask her anything though. “Hur gammal är du nu, syster?”
