Aaron stumbled up the porch stairs reeking of liquor. “Hmph,” he said as he shuffled past Gabriel and eyeing Theo “She hasn’t kicked you out yet, huh? And she took in ‘nother vagabond on top it all. Great! Jus what I need, sumtin’ else to take care of!”

Both Gabriel’s and Theo’s growls intensified. Gabriel grabbed Aaron by the arm, stopping him from going in the house. “You came to work drunk? What is your problem?”

“Hey lemme go!” Aaron exclaimed as he shrugged off Gabriel and went on into the home with Gabriel and Theo two steps behind him. Hearing the commotion, Tillie came into the hallway to see what was going on.

“Aaron? Is everything alright?” Tillie asked, eyeing the group as they walked into the living room.

“The mutt’s causing a ruckus,” Aaron said with a smirk as he stumbled into the wall.  “An’ the new dog ain’t exactly being friendly either.”

“Is...is that alcohol I smell?” Tillie asked, suddenly concerned about the behavior of someone who had seemingly been a stable employee.

“N'aw…it’s just…cough syrup…yeah…”Aaron replied, as he attempted to lean on the wall for support, but his hand missed the wall and he stumbled, trying to catch himself.

Tillie’s eyes narrowed. “My office. NOW!” the anger in her voice evident as she turned on her heel and headed upstairs, as Aaron weaved behind her, with Gabriel and Theo behind him.

Once upstairs, Tillie realized she had more of an audience than she intended. “Gabriel! I didn’t ask you to come up here.”

“I’m not letting you talk to this asshole alone, Tillie,” Gabriel insisted. “I don’t think you understand what he is capable of.” Theo barked in agreement while Tillie just looked back and forth between the two of them. Gabriel she would normally brush off, even if she did believe him. But Theo? What did he know that she didn’t?

“Look Gabriel, this is a supervisory matter,” she began. “As a resident, you really shouldn’t be here.”

Gabriel opened his mouth to protest, but Aaron interjected first. “No…I want him here, Till. There are things you…you don’t even know about this guy. Ya’know he doesn’t even have a real last name, right? Not one that he would give up. I had to make one up for him. I had to get him a fake birth certificate. I had to scam a social security card for him. Cause he wasn’t going to cooperate and help.”

Tillie gaped at Aaron. It wasn’t until this morning that she had truly believed that Gabriel was who he said he was. She hadn’t even thought about his last name, or his identification until Aaron brought it up.

"You...you got him fake identification?" she stammered. "Do you know how much trouble that will cause now that his funding application has gone through?"

"Me? Cause trouble? Nuh-huh...it was him," Aaron accused, pointing a shaky finger at Gabriel. "He wouldn't tell the truth. He wouldn't give up a last name. He said he had never been born. Can you even imagine? Who says crap like that? So I had to make all that shit up. I had to create the ID; otherwise, he wouldn't have funding. And without funding, this place goes down the tubes and I lose my job."

"By making up false IDs for residents, you will lose your job anyway. I want you out of here, now!" Tillie demanded.

"You're...you're firing me?" Aaron asked incredulously. "You can't fire me! I am the only one who gives a damn about this place! I turned in that funding application when you were letting it sit idle in your desk drawer; even after all that work I did so it would be completed."

"I knew it was you!" Gabriel exclaimed.  "I knew you had to be the one who..."

"Gabriel, stop it!" Tillie interrupted. "Aaron, I've heard enough. You created faked identification for a resident. You came into my office without my permission and turned in a funding application without my authorization. And you came to work intoxicated. So, yes, you're fired. Please go downstairs. I’ll call you a cab. I’m not letting you drive anywhere in your condition."

"I swear you'll regret this, Tillie," Aaron yelled, as he turned and stormed out of the office. Theo followed him out. Gabriel was about to as well, but Tillie called him back.

"Wait a minute," she said, her voice shaking after her confrontation with Aaron. "You knew about this, too, didn't you? That's why you didn't want to use the funding?"

Gabriel ran his hand over the back of his head, looking at the ground. "Um, yeah. I really didn't want to have the whole 'That's not really my last name and I don’t have any valid ID' conversation with you, Till. At the time, I didn't think you would take it very well. But I figured that if you didn't turn in the funding application, you wouldn't get into trouble."

 "But Gabriel," Tillie said. "You used those IDs to get a job. You can still get in trouble."

 "Yeah, but that's just me. Not you," he grinned sheepishly." And I never planned on being here long enough to get into that much trouble.”

 *gi*gi*gi*gi*gi*gi*gi*gi*

 Tillie stood out on the porch and watched over Aaron until the cab came to pick him up to take him home. Of course, she wasn’t alone. She had quickly realized she now had two guard dogs watching over her. Neither Gabriel nor Theo left her side until Aaron was gone. Once he had left, she checked on the other residents, who knew something was going on, but hadn’t seen or heard everything. She helped calm their nerves, and made a few phone calls to try and cover Aaron’s shift. One of her part-time staff agreed to come in and work tonight, which helped calm Tillie’s nerves.

While she had her own reasons for Aaron’s behavior to disturb her, Theo’s response to him had also left her unsettled.  She understood why Gabriel had been upset. He knew that Aaron had been lying to her and he had suspected that Aaron was the one that had snuck into her office. But Tillie wanted to know why Theo was disturbed by Aaron’s presence. She had her own suspicions and she wanted to talk to him, and not in his dog form. But that would require getting him out away from Gabriel, if she could manage that.

Tillie walked over to Theo and scratched him behind the ears which seemed to be a favorite spot. That and his belly. “I need to get out of her for awhile. I’m thinking of taking a walk, but something tells me that you’re not going to let me go alone.” He cocked his head as he looked up at her. “Well, there is a leash law in this city, but I don’t have one. Are you going to help me out here or…” Before she could finish her sentence, the leash appeared in her hand, already attached to his collar.

Gabriel walked up behind her. “What is it with you and this dog? You have an unhealthy attachment to him or something.”

Tillie raised her eyebrow. “Like what you and I have would be considered a normal social worker and client relationship? Besides, I’m just going to take him for a walk. I suppose that means you’re going to tag along, too?” Tillie resigned herself to the fact that she couldn’t talk to Theo alone right now, not with her other ‘guard dog’ present. But she was still determined to find away to ditch Gabriel and talk to her other angel.

Sure why not, seems like a nice enough evening for one,” he said, shoving his hand in his pockets. “So where did you come up with a leash?”

You’d be surprised at the things I have in the storage room. I still have a couple of old VCRs and a stereo with a turntable. I even have a hand push mower out in the storage shed.”

 “Let me know if you find Thor’s Hammer. He’s been looking for that thing for centuries,” Gabriel joked.

 They walked in silence for a few minutes before Tillie asked, “Don’t you ever get homesick? You’ve talked about getting your powers back. But just now, back in my office, was the first time I heard you mention not staying here long.”

Gabriel sighed. “Part of that is because today was the first time I truly realized I wasn’t in my own dimension. Well, if you don’t count the bright lights.”

Bright lights?” Tillie asked.

“Ever since I came here,” Gabriel explained, “the light here has been brighter, everywhere, all the time. It even gives me a headache sometimes. It was the first clue I had that I wasn’t in my own world. It just never clicked until today.”

“But that’s not that’s not the only thing I’m talking about,” Tillie said. “You’ve been a run away from your true home for a long time. Even with all of the fighting, don’t you miss them, your family?”

A pained expression crossed his face as he considered how to answer her. “Of course I do. That’s why I had such a hard time facing…Hey, where are we?” Gabriel looked up and realized he hadn’t been paying much attention to where they had been walking. They had somehow made their way to a smaller, older church in the neighborhood. One of the few that still had a cemetery on the property. And Tillie was leading them into the graveyard.

“Tillie, why are we here?” Gabriel asked, suddenly realizing how little he knew about her.

“Because sometimes, I get homesick,” she replied, as they walked up to a tombstone that read CHAMBERS.

“The family in the picture on your desk, that is your sister and your parents, right?” he said. He knew now it wasn’t a coincidence that they ended up here.  “Which one of them is here?”

“All of them,” she said somberly. “No, none of them. This is just a reminder that they lived here once. They are in Heaven, right? Tell me they are Heaven.” Theo nudged her and barked.

“I hate to keep agreeing with the dog, but yes, I think he is right,” Gabriel answered. “What happened?”

“Would you believe me if I told it was a drunk driver?” Tillie scoffed.

“Why that little…was he trying to push all of your buttons today?” Gabriel growled. “I swear if I had my powers I would…”

Just then, Tillie heard the sound of arguing behind the church. “Do you hear that?” she asked.

“Hear what?” Gabriel responded, looking around. But Theo also seemed to be more alert.

Tillie swore she could hear distinctly male voices getting louder, and finally she heard one of them say “Luci, you got some 'splainin' to do!” At the same time, Theo began barking and took off running, but in the opposite direction of the arguing, faster than either of them could have imagined.

“That darn dog!” Gabriel exclaimed as he took off running after Theo. Not that he really cared if the mutt disappeared on them, but he thought that it would matter to Tillie.

Tillie took the opportunity to run towards the voices she heard. Gabriel stopped when he noticed. “Hey!” he yelled after her. “What are you doing?”

“You follow Theo. I’m taking a short cut through the back of the church and I’ll try to cut him off,” she lied. She knew Theo was trying to lead them away from whatever was going on behind the church. She was determined to find out what it was.

*gi*gi*gi*gi*gi*gi*gi*gi*

“Why are you here, brother? There is nothing of interest for you,” Michael said, resisting the urge to growl at his obstinate little brother.

“I could ask you the same thing, Mikey,” Lucifer purred. “Besides, I have as much right to be here as you do. Dad kicked me out of Heaven. But both of us have the right to influence humans on Earth, now don’t we? The real question is, which of the humans here on this speck of dust have captured your attention and why?”

“How do you know I’m not here just taking a little vacation? It’s a great town to grab a beer and catch a baseball game,” Michael chuckled.

“You have been spending too much time with our little brother if you expect me to believe that answer, “ Lucifer said, trying to sound amused, but his face showed that he was beginning to get irritated with his brother. “But I don’t need you to tell me. I am well on my way to figuring it out. I have operatives working on this and we are close to knowing the secrets you are keeping from us. I know enough to realize you are hiding someone from another dimension. But not for long. And then you will find out exactly how much trouble I can cause you.”

 Michael kept his face guarded and did not respond to his younger brother. But it did surprise him that Lucifer had learned so much about their mission already. They would have to change their tactics to stay ahead of him in order to protect all involved.

 “Your silence only confirms that I’m right,” Lucifer said with a smirk.

 “You don’t know as much as you think you do, little brother,” Michael said. “If you’re not careful, you will find that you’re the one that ends up in trouble here.”

 A rustling in the grass caused them both to look in the direction from which the noise emanated. A breathless woman with brown wavy hair came to a dead stop when she saw the two of them behind the church. Michael had to bite back the rare urge to swear when he saw her. Gabriel was supposed to ensure that she stayed away from this meeting.

Lucifer noted the look that passed across his older brother’s face at the sudden appearance of the woman. “What’s wrong, Mikey? You weren’t expecting one of your sheeple to stop by during our little family get together?”

Michael moved to stand between the woman and Lucifer, but before he could say anything, Gabriel, no longer in his dog form, appeared amongst the group as well. Without saying a word, Gabriel grabbed the woman from behind and the two of then disappeared.

She’s not your concern, Lucifer,” Michael said. “And it would be wise to simply leave this matter well enough alone.”

Lucifer said nothing. He just smiled at Michael with an expression that would have left the Joker himself cold.

I had thoughts about this chapter, but the Michael and Luci confrontation pushed them out of my head... I did like Gabriel talking about his family, and what little you wrote of his home. My plot-point senses tell me that Aaron will be back. Oh Tillie, you do get into trouble. Still, I'm glad Luci hasn't found Gabriel yet.
