Don't you ever tame your demons (Trinity, Gregory, Rowan)

All you have is your fire
And the place you need to reach
Don't you ever tame your demons
But always keep 'em on a leash

It hadn't been hard to spot him really. Not with the curse on him. Cana would have thought it would have worn off by now, but apparently his fury had been too strong when casting it. It didn't have much noticeable effect; just made a bland, average looking white boy like Joel stand out in a crowd of other bland white boys he'd been trying to hide in. Getting him separated from the group had taken some finagling, but it wasn't anything Cana wasn't capable of. Besides it wasn't as if Joel was here for them.

He'd come to Wildaway last year for Christmas, all fake smiles and gentlemanly manners. Everyone had loved him. Everyone but Cana, who couldn't--at the time at least--put a finger on his dislike.

Nothing like black eyes and broken bones for a sickening vindication.

Kristian had had wide eyes when Cana had brought him down to the sub basement beneath the wine cellar. Less shock at what Cana had done than shock that Joel had been stupid enough to show up in town looking for Lyssa. They hadn't even dated that long for gods' sake.

"What are we doing with him?" Kristian had asked after only a moment's hesitation.

"Having fun," Cana replied with a wolfish grin. The muffled pleas from where Joel had been tied up and gagged to a chair nearby chimed out, and Cana gave a mildly unhinged laugh.

Kristian considered this for a moment before shrugging and looking over at the table. While there were definitely things he expected (hammer, nails, screwdrivers), there were also a large amount of potions ingredients and equipment.

"Gonna run some tests?"

"How else better to get good data?"

"Fair enough," Kristian shrugged. He idly wished he'd been in town to stop Cana from grabbing Lyssa's ex, but he also wasn't terribly put out by Cana's plans. He remembered that night at Gammla Uppsala, when their cousin had shown up with a black eye and broken shoulder in the boys' dorms. He definitely still hadn't forgiven Joel.

"It also presents us an...opportunity," Cana finally said, still sounding slightly out of sorts. Kristian's hand froze over the hammer. Looking back at his brother with a curious expression, he froze before speaking.

Someone had opened the door.

It wasn't as if Trinity was trying to sneak about, but he hadn't known what else to do. He had never been comfortable around Lyssa. He liked her too much to ever be comfortable. She was beautiful and kind and amazing, and he... wasn't any of those things. It was one of the reasons why he had been seeking Cana out. As Trinity's best friend and Lyssa's cousin, Cana would know how to fix... whatever it was. Trinity wanted to be comfortable around Lyssa the way Cana was comfortable around Gabe.

So, when he had seen the shadow moving towards the kitchen, Trinity had followed. He followed it to the room with all the juice, and then to the door that was cracked open and halfway down the stairs. It made sense that, like Hogwarts, this place would had secret rooms and halls. He had been busy thinking about where else they might be, that he hadn't realized it wasn't just him and the shadow anymore.

Trinity blinked at the group gathered in the small room. Cana and Kristian were standing next to a guy who was tied up. He didn't recognize the guy, but the game was familiar. At least it was to him, which meant it probably wasn't a real game. Trinity didn't like the look in Cana's eyes. He didn't see it often, but remembered it from the second time they had met. The time when C as ma had told him about Lyssa's old boyfriend.

Trinity's stomach turned. "Is that him?" The anger in his voice almost shocked Trinity. Almost. He had decided a long time ago that if he ever met the guy who hurt Lyssa, he would make sure every action was regretted. He didn't want to be a violent person, but, if it came down to it, he would kill for Lyssa if it would make her feel safe.

Walking the rest of the way down the stairs and stopping next to his friends, Trinity studied the bloke with disdain. "Wot is he doing here?"
