twisting the screw tighter

Leon paced his room now. He still wasn't sure where this was actually going to go with Drex.

A part of him thought for sure he could take this on. It would be a challenge. And if it came to them being together, then he could just move in here with him. Anthony was with Johanna. Lux was oblivious to him. Cher was so Cher.

He knew her kind. When she wanted it, she'd tell you. Then were those periods of leave me the hell alone. He could see now the less attention you paid her. The more she wanted you.

Yes, he needed to get away from her. And yet, well, he couldn't just move in with Drex, could he? Couldn't he? Jonah was hardly there as it was. Then there was this thought in his head that perhaps he was doing Anthony a favor. What if between the two of them they could figure out this secret of Jonah's. Not that Anthony had told him everything. About how he got here like he did. He didn't know the specific, but he knew he was on to a trail of something not so nice about Jonah.

So much to ponder. Not even googling would help. Of course, he really couldn't get into his computer research with Cher at the door.

"Do you want something?" He asked when he opened the door and she followed him in.

"Of course, I want something?" She grinned.

"I think I'm all out what ever it is you're after," He didn't even have any pot on him. Leon turned to her with a shrug. She leaned in then and put her fingers around his face, pulling him in for a kiss. Leon pulled away.

He just shook his head, no.

"What is it? What did I do?" She looked hurt.

"I don't think I'm enough for you," his lips were straight and he hardly gave her an expression at all.

"I don't understand," Cher kept searching his stare as if he might slip it up and tell her everything, or at least let her in.

"Cheri, you honestly don't get it, do you?" He tossed his head back and laughed at her as if she was being such an idiot. "I know there is someone else, that you dream of. Which of course, is not me, yet you come to me, as if you might not have to think about that certain someone, at least for a little while."

She looked away then as if he'd found her out.

"Yes, just as I thought, they put you hold, don't they?" His smile was smart.

Cher bit her bottom lip then.

"What I think you should do is to, um, revenge might be your answer, you know, you could easily seduce them perhaps, and then you might find the real answer you're looking for." He advised with a bit of a taunt. "I think its time you played hard ball."

"Do you think-" She stopped herself then as if she had to keep her secret tucked away of the one she really loved.

"Do I think Lux would notice?" He already knew. "Make her notice. But it won't be with me nor Drex. Its Jonah who you want. Only... the key is, you have to make him need you."

"But how?" She looked frustrated.

"Oh, you have your ways, Cher. You'll figure it out." He just nodded. His work with done here. It was something for her to think about, and she wasn't going to do it on his time.
