Delphine paused. Was she seriously going to have to deal with somebody who was going to play games with her? She was hoping that being tied to a chair would make most people realise that they could be in serious trouble if they didn’t comply. But that didn’t stop one or two people from trying to have fun with it all. She hated it, she hated it when people didn’t take her seriously.
"Yes…Loki. Please…please do not tell me that you are an infamous trickster god inside the body of a mortal." She waved her hands, mockingly. "Because that is just…not possible." The tiniest portion of Delphine’s mind was fighting against the logical majority as her smirk faded. What if? What if there was a celestial being sitting in front of her and she was about to make the biggest scientific breakthrough in the history of mankind.
She pushed the thought away as quickly as she had imagined it. She was being stupid, and so was he. So she just sighed and waited for his response.
His fidgeting finally stopped, the angel instead opting to lock his gaze onto Delphine’s. A shrug rolled off of his shoulders. Gabriel was watching her closely, now; gauging her reaction. She was still deep in disbelief, and he couldn’t blame her— but there must have been a flicker of doubt somewhere. Humans were skeptical about their own beliefs at the best of times, but surely this one was a little more open-minded.
Gabriel leaned forward then, as if he was about to indulge the woman opposite him in some big secret. His smile widened. Pride shone on his face; after all, he was about to stumble onto an opportunity to show off. His voice was lowered to nearly a whisper. “It’s true. Cross my heart and hope to die. It’s a special mortal, I’ll give him that much praise, but it is all one hundred percent truth.”
He leaned back again and cleared his throat, having satisfied himself with his answer. As long as there was the tiniest scrap of doubt in her mind, he could play with it as much as he liked. Perhaps he could even get some information from her himself: like how she managed to trap something she didn’t even believe in. “Y’know, if you just let me out of the chair, I could prove it to you. All the magic tricks you could hope for.”
Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe.
