Never Go on a Blind Date

Sylar finally seemed to be making some headway in his school’s little social group. Eric had been talking to him lately, and they’d discussed normal kid-things: wanting cars, fake IDs, girls. Eric even called him Sylar, instead of Gabriel (or worse, ‘Gabriel Gay’, which was a holdover from middle school that he couldn’t seem to erase). And Eric introduced him to a few other kids. He might’ve had a chance at being someone at school, after all.

Except then Eric decided he needed to set him up on a date. He knew the perfect girl for him, he’d said. Her name was Lucy and she’d been wanting to meet him. Alarm bells went off immediately in Sylar’s head, but this had been going so well- he decided to go along with it. He got a letter from Lucy through Eric, describing in detail the grey jacket she had, and where and when she’d be waiting.

When Sylar got to the place (right on time), there wasn’t anyone there except for the kid no one talks to. Rumors floated around about him being big into arson, setting fire on anything he could get his hands onto. Sylar only ever saw him with his hands in his pockets.

After ten minutes of waiting, no one else had appeared. It was possible he’d been stood up, but everything was pointing to Luke being Lucy. An angry black lump had formed in the pit of Sylar’s stomach, and his growing scowl was more than a little visible. He didn’t move from the spot, just sat there and gathered shadows.

Seated on the bleachers, knees apart, Luke had been staring intently at the basketball game for a long time. He was still sporting the split lip that Anderson gave him (and he was actually pretty lucky that all he had was a split lip considering the behemoth he had been dealing with) but one fight never stopped him from lining up another.

Basketball was boring but he was studying it to find out which player was overly aggressive and easy to piss off. They all looked like they were having a good time today, though, which pissed Luke off instead.

He wasn't a masochist. He didn't like getting hit. The rush came after he was bleeding or half concussed, when he was being laughed at. These assholes had no idea that he could kill them on a whim. No idea at all.

Luke was further agitated by the kid watching him. He didn't recognize him at all, wearing the same Catholic school uniform them all did. Sheep. They blended in. That kid blended in even more but. Luke had trouble honestly ignoring him.

So he stopped. Grabbing his bookbag, he climbed up the few remaining rows and stood with his hands in his pockets. "What the fuck do you want?"

Yeah who cares when they're being stared at, right? Luke tended to operate without being noticed until he wanted to be noticed. Have the other kid around was not good for business here. One thing he had learned was to stay apart from everyone. And having this dickwad here wasn't helping.

He was about to say something when when Luke's eyebrow shot up instead.

"Who's Eric?" He couldn't split his head open but there was always something else he could do. "C'mon. Point him out." He didn't want for an answer, he just headed down the bleachers.

Luke rolled his eyes, though Gabe wasn't going to be able to see it, following after him. Jeez. He just wanted to know who the kid was, not why he was public enemy number skull split. Luke breathed out through his nose and shrugged into both arm straps of the backpack. He needed the additional cover.

Once Gabe pointed the asshole in question out, Luke drew both hands from his pockets and pressed the right gently on the door. Twenty or so seconds later and the blond kid started to scream, running down the hallway and trying to get his pants off.

Metal zippers got very hot very quickly. A slow smile spread on Luke's face before he glanced at Gabe. "That moron trying to streak is your bully?"

Hands back in his pockets, Luke put back on his dejected, half annoyed face. The amusement of it all was gone for the moment. "What do you think I could do through a door?" Luke snorted and turned to head back through the basketball game going on the center court. It was only practice. He got yelled at the couch blew a whistle but so what? Detention was threatened and he gave the fat old man in shorts the finger before he pushed open the back door.

He wouldn't get detention. He never did. He unnerved too many people and that suited him just fine. Luke wasn't a guy that had friends. His mom didn't even like him. He didn't blame her.

He wasn't expecting anyone to chase after him. He didn't imagine that he'd get a thank you either. Whatever. The world wasn't lonely if you could still count on yourself.

Oh Jesus fucking Christ on a mother fucking pogo stick! How the hell did that weird kid cut him off at the pass?! Luke had half a mind to just ignore him, to barrel through him. But it did occur to him that if Gabe had been staring at him for a gag to this Eric kid, he had to know why.

Luke kept walking but he let Gabe keep pace. He had his nom's car today so the other bit boy had just that exact amount of time it took to walk there to get it out of his system. Whatever was in his system.

"How the fuck should I know? Lighter go off in his pocket? Thought he snubbed a cigarette and didn't all the way? Why were you glaring at me in there?"

This kid was going to get smacked. Luke was usually a hands off sort of guy (who wanted to actually touch someone, yuck) but he might make an exception for the nerd trying to intimidate him. Luke did not look even remotely impressed, lips turned upward in a definitive smirk. He stopped, though, crossing his arms over his chest.

"Whatever you're smoking, you better hope that no one catches you with it. Super powers? Are you an idiot or just crazy?" It wasn't until Gabe actually seemed to praise him--

Well fuck. Luke did like to show off. Usually people didn't notice him doing it, though. "Not probably. I could kill you too. So back off. And keep your damned mouth shut."

Luke was less horrified and more euphoric. The dude was dead. If Sylar didn't help him along, he'd be dead within the hour anyway. His stomach acid would probably eat through the charred skin and fill his abdomen. It was all over at that point. No one could save him.

And he did that.

Luke watched for a little while until the blood splattered on the wall a little too close to him. He backed away from there and backed away again as the liquid seeped across the floor in a relentless march towards his shoes.

Fuck that.

Mumbling something, Luke shuffled away to Brian's bathroom and kicked the door shut before he got his pants down around his ankles. He was quick about it, the act itself disgusting him, though he knew it was necessary. Without release he'd just be miserable. Two dozen tugs was all it took and into the toilet it went. No muss or fuss. He only got a little on his hand and that he scrubbed up under scalding water.

When Sylar finished with whatever the fuck he was doing, Luke was back with red hands eating Pringles out of a can he had found on the counter. He was leaning on the wall two feet from the blood pool.

"What did you get, other than AIDS and every fucking STD in the book?"

If Sylar was looking for someone to be impressed by him, he was going to have to look elsewhere. Or at least clean up. He had blood all over him, sprayed across his cheek, all over his hands and pants... Sorry but that was gross. Luke watched the glass, putting three Pringles at a time into his mouth. He only arched an eyebrow, not even flinching when the glass broke apart.

It wasn't until Sylar sent the shards into the ceiling that Luke shifted the container to the bend of his elbow and made a sort of slow clap. He didn't want to risk dropping the chips. It was bad enough that he had touched some of the stuff in the bathroom. He did his best to wipe that down.

He had a record after all. That could suck if he was linked to this shit.

"Huh. Well that's cool. You just have to pick into someone's brain to..." Well now he was defensive. "Shit. Does this mean we have to fucking Mortal Kombat or something? I'm eating chips man."

Luke relaxed, but only because Sylar did. He affected the other boy's current posture, purely without being conscious of it, and shoved another chip in his mouth. "Good. Because as much as nuking that guy was amusing, people would actually ask after you and you've been hanging out too much with me." Like a whole twice in the last few weeks? "Oh, Sy?" At least Luke didn't seem to care about the name. Hopefully Gabriel wasn't too pissed off by the shortening of it. "You're not getting in my car like that. I hope you brought a change of clothes with your screwdriver collection."

Luke turned his attention back to the mutilated body on the floor before he glanced up at the sticky, red spattered boy.

"Oh. Shit. Best idea ever. We should take the brain with us. Really fuck with the cops!" Luke didn't need trophies from his killings, he didn't even want to keep the gross thing. He just wanted to see it on the news later.

"You're using fucking telekinesis to levitate? Fuck you dude, you weren't even born with that power, why does yours get to be cooler." Luke wasn't actually all that pissed off, he was just enjoying staying away from the mess...and maybe trying not to think about how fucking amazing it was going to be cooking a brain to mush! He shoved the chip can under his arm and grabbed at the bag, holding it at arm's length. It didn't matter if this was clean, he was going to have to wash up really well after.

Careful about his prints and where he left them, Luke was doing his best to also avoid all of the blood. As Sylar had evidently bathed in it, he was having a really hard time of things.

"Also, you're seriously gross. You have to figure out a better, cleaner way of doing that. Like... I don't know. Let me cook the asshole completely. No blood. If I leave his head alone, you should be okay with a whole lot of tarps. Or hey, what about that crazy plastic suit thing Batman wears in American Psycho?"

He didn't realize that he was already planning out their next murder.

There was something about cooking an already dead guy that just didn't appeal to Luke. He didn't need practice, the act of cooking wasn't part of the enjoyment. He'd gone to retrieve the chips when Gabriel was bathing, so had only heard the nails-on-chalkboard of the sliced mirror before he returned to inspect it. "At least you're inventive," Luke muttered. "So there's that. You know, we're gonna have to get rid of all of that shit right?" he asked, scowling at the bag of murder clothes. "And I mean really get rid of. Like more than off the bridge or whatever. People watch that shit."

Alley dumpster might work but Luke wasn't going anywhere near them. Sylar can just TK it open. That really was a useful power, but he liked his. It was his, it was special, and he didn't have to steal it.

"The guy that plays Batman was in another movie about this Wall Street psycho killer," he explained, which was starting to sound a whole lot like more than basic conversation. Maybe if you killed someone together, you just happened to form some sort of murder club? "You've never seen it? Dude, get Netflix."

Luke didn't show it, but he did actually commiserate on Sylar's exhaustion. He remembered what it was like to be new at what he could do. And there was a reason he had housed an entire tune if Pringles. Not just because he was a teenaged boy. Well, not just because he was at least! "You gotta carb up man," Luke said, trying to helpful before he wandered away again. Let as glad clean up on his own.

It was only the mention of burning that made him frown. He'd never tried to cause a spark but Sylar did have the right idea at least! Everyone knew what metal in a microwave could do.

Now he was curious. Curious enough to go along with it.

He found a big bag of cheese puffs in the dude's pantry, stepping gingerly around blood puddles, and placed them, open, for Sylar. Huh. Maybe this partnering shit wasn't too bad.

"I don't care what you wanna do, but I ain't staying in the city too much longer. So hurry the fuck up."
