Talking To Logan (For Logan! As If.)  
Victor was still feeling somewhat cowed from Manuel's manipulation of his emotions, even though he hadn't yet realised that Allison's lover had been the one responsible for his sudden panic; although he'd calmed down now, he wasn't proud of the way he'd turned tail and run away, just when things were getting interesting. That had been a few hours ago now, though, and he returned to the room he shared with Logan to just catch some rest. As he strolled in he could tell from the scent that his brother was already there - and was still a lot smaller.

"Hey there, Jimmy."

Logan looked up from where he was sitting on the bed, his damn tiny legs dangling down without reaching the floor. This age switch was a royal pain, but at least he and John had found some pants that fit, just about. It had been a bit drafty without.

"Hey," he said, and that was about all he had to say. The good thing about Victor was that they didn't always have to talk.

He nodded in response and sat down on the edge of his own bed, his legs easily reaching the floor just like they always had done. Thankfully, with the change in his age, his body hadn't altered much at all and he was still as big as he'd been for the past fifty-odd years. His bed smelled of Emma, as it had done for a while now, thankfully - and, more importantly, it smelled of sex. That was something he'd missed.

Things had been awkward since Jimmy's change though. Despite everything else that he felt comfortable doing, it just didn't feel right to be going at it in the same room as his brother when his brother was essentially pre-pubescent again. Sure, Victor had fucked in a room when there'd been children there before - a prostitute just trying to make some money to feed her kids, a woman here and there that he wanted to humiliate in front of her family. But not Logan. He couldn't bring himself to rut in front of Logan, not when his brother was like a child.

Or was he? It occurred to Victor that he hadn't actually asked his brother just how young he actually felt. It was something that was worth investigating.

"Jimmy. Got a question."
Logan: baby!Jimmy look45825243_t78_a on December 5th, 2009 09:07 pm (UTC)
That couldn't be good. One of the reasons Logan liked that Victor and him didn't always have to talk was that, when Victor did talk, it was usually to start an argument or to make fun of him - and Logan wasn't in the mood for either.

"What?"
Victor Creed: Zus - Concernwatch_the_nails on December 5th, 2009 09:10 pm (UTC)
"This whole... age thing." Dammit, this was going to be awkward, but there wasn't really any other way of getting around it. "D'you still feel... y'know. I mean, you look a lot different. D'you feel, mentally, well... younger?"
Logan: baby!Jimmy45825243_t78_a on December 5th, 2009 09:32 pm (UTC)
Where the hell was this going? Logan tried to find the catch, but failed to. Finally, he just answered as best he could.

"Feel different." He gave a little shrug, not sure what Victor wanted to hear. "Healing's not what it used to be..."

Well, it was what it used to be. That was the problem.
Victor Creed: Zus - WTFwatch_the_nails on December 5th, 2009 09:40 pm (UTC)
Nodding, Victor sighed. He knew just what his brother meant by that, and it wasn't good; Logan's healing ability had improved over time, and that was something else to worry about. But it wasn't the immediate problem, and he decided to just cut to the chase.

"You still wanna fuck Jean?"
Logan: baby!Jimmy refuses to belief45825243_t78_a on December 5th, 2009 09:55 pm (UTC)
His eyes narrowed. So that's what it was... He knew there'd be some kind of shit.

"That ain't gonna happen again, Victor."

Logan couldn't believe his brother would even ask a thing like that. And after blaming Jean for everything, too. Clearly Jean was right, and Victor knew it hadn't been like that at all. Why Victor had gone from being protective to being an ass, Logan didn't know, but then, those switches were always unpredicable - and they always happened. Still, even if his brother was just being an ass, Logan felt the need to defend himself.

"We talked."

Now he was worried. Victor had no way of knowing just what Logan and Jean had talked about, and there was always that niggling fear that the telepath would let slip about Olivia - and blame him for it somehow. Not to mention Logan already seemed to think he'd tried to rape Jean, which meant the bitch was more than capable of lying like a pro.

"What about?"

He tried to sound casual but there was an edge in his voice.
Logan: baby!Jimmy does not want45825243_t78_a on December 5th, 2009 10:56 pm (UTC)
"What do you think we talked about?"

Logan glared at Victor before looking away, huffing. It was just like his brother to drag these things back up when they'd already been dealt with. Logan refused to get worked up about what had happened between Jean and him again, though. He wasn't proud of cheating on Dom, but Jean had reassured him that he wasn't turning into another Victor, and the knowledge that it wouldn't happen again was enough to put his mind at rest.

"Got things sorted out."
Victor Creed: Zus - Worrywatch_the_nails on December 6th, 2009 10:02 am (UTC)
"What things? This... situation with you and her and Dom, right?"

He sounded pretty damn concerned now, and there were several reasons for that. Firstly, he was still worried that Jean could've told Logan about Olivia, or that she could've lied about something else - but also, it still bothered Victor to know that Logan had had sex with Jean. He was jealous, and he always would be, even though he had Emma. If Logan got together with Jean now, Victor would be pissed. Not that he could see his brother being happy with her now that he'd seen what she was really like, but still. Victor would be doing his best to keep Logan with Dom if he possibly could.

Great. Logan gave up on the righteous indignation. If Victor wanted to keep prodding, it's not like Logan could stop him. The problem was that getting into this topic seriously would lead to an argument, and Logan didn't want one. He knew what Victor had told him, which was nothing like what Jean had told him - and Logan was more inclined to believe Jean in this. Still, he supposed he would have to tell Victor sooner or later... Might as well happen now.

Logan gave a little nod in reply. "She said she didn't do anything. Didn't make me -... You know."
Victor Creed: Zus - Arrogantwatch_the_nails on December 6th, 2009 12:59 pm (UTC)
"Then the bitch is lying.."

She had to be. She just had to be. There was no way Logan would suddenly have decided to just cheat on Dom like that of his own volition. Hell, even Victor had managed to just about restrain himself for Emma's sake - well, apart from the time Jean had thrown him out, but even that had been because he'd kept thinking about Emma. Or maybe, just maybe, Victor couldn't stand the thought of Logan acting more like an animal than he had for once - that Logan had been blind to everything except the need to rut, whereas Victor had managed to keep a grip on his more logical, human side. Because if Logan had, for once in his life, acted more like a wild beast than Victor - Victor just couldn't stand it.

"I already told you, she's a goddamn 'path! She knew about you and Dom and she led you on anyway! Stop feeling so goddamn sorry for yourself!"
Logan: baby!Jimmy does not want45825243_t78_a on December 6th, 2009 02:24 pm (UTC)
"I'm not feeling sorry for myself!"

Logan glared at Victor. He was actually feeling OK about the whole thing. He could accept it. How the fuck was he feeling sorry for himself? It was annoying enough when Victor accused him of such things when they were true. When they weren't, it pissed Logan off even more - not because the accusations couldn't be true, but because he hated it when they were.

"And just because she can read my mind doesn't mean she did."

He glared at the wall, a frown of determination on his face. He didn't give a shit what Victor thought; he was not going to change his mind about this.
