Gallery Talk || Evan & Jana

le-jana-hart:

"Guilty as charged, although I do know a lot about the artwork you can find anywhere in here. Benefits of working here day in and day out," Jana replied, turning to Evan and smiling. "I started this one a few years ago and just finished it three months ago. It took me ages to get the right amount of colors into everything but I think it paid off." She stopped and tilted her head to the side slightly as she crossed her arms across her chest. "How did you guess I did this?"

A triumphant smile formed on Evan’s face. “Well, for starters, I could kind of tell based off of the way you were describing the artwork. You had a certain tone to your voice that told me all that I needed to know.” He had learned through many years of his life how to read people’s emotions, and Jana’s at that moment of explanation had been clear as day. “So, since you know so much about this piece, and many of the others here, that means I can come to you for your opinions. However, at this moment I’m thinking I really like this one in particular. How much is it worth?”

Surprises; Gemma & Evan

gemma-ross:

"A little show?" Gemma smiled against his lips before kissing him once again. "Well, we can certainly let them see now. You know how much I love an audience," she teased, an arm slipping gently around his neck. "Me dipping down below this table and sucking you off would be a show. One a lot of people here would probably want to see. But I mean, I do like your place a lot. How about we finish our drinks and head out? Try to not get me naked before we get out of the cab, hm?" she teased, taking his hand with her free one. 

She could feel someone watching them, and she pushed them to look the other way. For one night, she wanted to enjoy herself and play, but work always seemed to be trailing after her like a lost puppy. No matter who she was with, it was never an acceptable way to conduct herself as a lady. Then again, Gemma never once considered herself to be a lady. She was an agent who got the job done. Tonight, the agent wanted the spoils of victory. As soon as the eyes were off of her, she let herself kiss him deeply. “Tell me when you’re ready, and we’ll go.”

If there was one thing that Evan had learned about Gemma in the time he’d known her, it was certainly that she enjoyed putting on a show. He didn’t mind putting on a show either, if he were being completely honest. Evan never lacked confidence, and it was because of that, that he didn’t have any issues with what other people did, and did not see him do. At that very moment, though, it was quite ready to go along with the teasing that Gemma was providing. 

Evan picked up his drink, and polished it off before flashing her a smirk. “I’m ready whenever you are now.” He made a move to stand, and held his hand down for her to take it. “However, I make no promises about trying not to get you naked before we reach the cab because I know just how good you can be with the teasing, and I’m almost certain that you will make it extremely difficult for me.” He nodded towards the door. “Either way, we should go because I’m in no mood to rush whatever events happen once we get back to my place.” Once she was standing, however, he took full advantage of kissing her deeply again.

Let Me Invite You // Evan & Isaac

theisaacmason:

Oh god…

Isaac continued smiling, hiding every single thought. He knew he was an asshole and he used that cover to obtain what he needed, but Evan Kantor was worst than him. The last phrase was an unnecessary demonstration of power, what obviously he doesn’t have. Maybe Mr. Kantor managed Advent X, but he knew Florence Devlin was the real boss. Thanks to the agents and her confession. “Of course, you are doing a good job.” Isaac will be patient, but he was taking a list about this and everything.

Two hours. Maybe that can give to Isaac time to create a plan. If he could have access to Mr. Kantor personal computer… or his phone. Or something. Isaac took the opportunity: now or never. “It’s good for me. My law firm is in the same building. I will call to your assistant to check when you been here.” He extended politely his hand.

The thing that Evan loved most about himself was his ability to keep a secret, and it was because of this he was able to utilize his mutant ability without people knowing that he was. He had been intelligent, and careful enough to never do it in any way that others could ever find out his skill. That ability was what allowed him to tell which person he encountered was human, or who had a special skill. It was how he knew who to keep close to him, and who to keep an eye on.He’d had years of honing his craft while being married to Violet, and even after ten years of marriage, she didn’t even know what he was capable of. 

It was that very reason that as Evan stood in front of Isaac he was able to understand what skill Isaac had, and if necessary know how to use it against him. He trusted no person, and it was due to this that he took overly-extreme precautions for everything. Glancing down at Isaac’s hand he shook it, holding his grudging feelings inside. “Let me escort you off of this floor. Security wouldn’t appreciate you being around here.” With a gesture, he motioned back to the open elevator, and then joined the man. “It won’t be long, I’ll contact you the very moment I’m back.”

We Have Work To Do || Rachel & Evan

rachelxteer:

Seeing his look of approval, Rachel beamed. The recognition she received from her boss was nothing short of wonderful. To know that she was doing a good job was relieving. She liked pleasing people and Evan was no exception. “Really? Well, thank you, Mr. Kantor. I was a bit unsure but I know with the right ideas we could really make it work!” she replied with the brightest smile she could muster. Her mind was sorting through all of the ideas she had in her head, her hands itching to get a pad and scrawl everything down. However, as courteous as she was, this time was reserved for lunch and for the basic planning. The ideas could wait.

When the food had arrived, she took a moment to breathe in the scent then reached for her fork, digging into her food. Hearing his comment, she chuckled softly and took a bite, letting out a satisfied sigh. “It’s absolutely perfect, Mr. Kantor. Thank you,” Rachel replied with a nod before taking a bite once more. As the conversation droned on, the young woman kept the pleasant demeanor around him. She couldn’t really understand why most of her co-workers didn’t like him. He was a wonderful boss and a nice man. He worked hard to get where he wanted to go and she respected that. “So, business aside for a moment, how have you been, Mr. Kantor?”

image

The pure joy over Evan’s approval of her idea was evident on her face. Part of him was glad he could keep his facade going longer, and the other part of him was proud he was able to create that sort of a reaction in someone. He did notice that she still continued to call him Mr. Kantor. If he were being honest, he enjoyed the fact that he had garnered that sort of respect out of his associate, but he wanted to make sure that she remained comfortable around him. 

Her tone of conversation changed to something less formal, but he still took note of the fact that his first name hadn’t been used. With a friendly smile, he replied, “You don’t always have to address me as Mr. Kantor. You can address me as Evan, it’s my name, and it’s just the two of us here. I won’t mind in the least. Mr. Kantor makes me feel old.” He took a sip of his drink before continuing, “I’ve been well, always keeping myself busy both with business, and without if I can. What about yourself? Is there anything new happening in your life?”

Settlements // Violet & Evan

violetmillers:

"Believe me, Evan. Me wanting to keep this property and having nothing tied to you are both in the same emotion. It’s not that I hold anything against you anymore, I just don’t want to go back to that life." She sighed and let her face fall into a solemn, blank stare. "What’s happened between us, it’s over. What’s done is done, and there is no use playing like this is just us taking a break. I want what was mine in the first place, and you know that it was."

She leaned back into the chair and crossed her legs. Her eyes darted around the office, and she wasn’t sure what choice of words would convince him. If all else failed, she would push him to giver her what she wanted, but for some reason she felt guilty every time she used her powers on him. Perhaps she respected him too much. 

They hadn’t really talked much since the divorce was finalized, and part of her still wished they had taken another route. Truth be told, she was disgustingly happy being back with Vincent once again, but it still left her for a small longing for the human life she had had with Evan. It was so much easier in a way, no long-lasting concerns that could plague her for nights on end. The simplicity of a human’s love and affection. She loved Vincent entirely, but being loved by others… now that was a feeling she was addicted to.

"I don’t want to fight with you," she sighed. "I just, I get angry every time I have to deal with something like this. It’s not as if I see you outside of touchy situations anyway." Her eyes finally met his once again. "Please, let’s not make this more complicated than it already is."

image

It amused Evan every time that Violet attempted to put her food down and get what she wanted. He loved that about her, and the more she tried to get something, the less likely he was to give it up. On top of it all, he could feel when she would use her power against him. She was, after all, the very first one that he had ever learned had any special skill, and in turn, she was the reason that he was able to find out about his own secret skill. All the same, he wondered just how often he was helpless against her. 

Evan sighed and leaned forward, “I know, every time you see me it’s merely because of some unpleasant encounter. I wish that you wouldn’t look at me as so troubling. You see, despite how everything turned out for us, I like to think that we had a good history together. I don’t know about you, but I always think of it fondly… well… up until the very end bit, that is.”

Those were true words, but all the same he was reluctant to give up what she wanted. “I just don’t understand why you’re always so keen to erase all of that. We must have thought differently of our past life together.”

Best of the Best // Evily

violetmillers:

Violet smiled as her phone lit up. She needed something to distract her from all the events surrounding her at the moment. Vincent making her face that little shit over this retreat was almost too much to handle, and she knew her weekend was no more relaxing than spending a night in an Iron Maiden.

TEXT: I’m bored. Come keep me company?

After finally managing to get himself under control after what had happened, Evan settled enough to hear his phone alert him to another text message. He picked up his phone, and read the text, laughing before he typed up a reply.

TEXT: Absolutely. I would love to. What cabin?

Evan had to use all of his concentration to make sure that he didn’t end up doing backflips around the room again. The whole thing was infuriating. However, Evan was out the door in record time, and made his way to the cabin he needed, knocking on the door upon his arrival.

Hiking… I Guess I Do That Now || Jana & Evan

le-jana-hart:

Jana smiled as he spoke. “Well I would offer you to sneak into mine for wifi but unfortunately, I don’t have it either. Just a TV for me too.” She pondered as she tried to figure out where she was actually going with her statement. “Uh…coffee? Cell reception? Internet? I’m not sure what else I was going to say, to be honest. I thought I did but the thought kind of escaped me.” She giggled sheepishly, trying to hide the blush in her cheeks as she admitted that she had a bit of a blonde moment. “I will say it has very good looking me like yourself.”

image

"You had best stop all of that talk. I’m missing the city more and more with every mention of things that I’ve given up by coming here." Evan caught the blush that was on her face, and he couldn’t help but smile at the fact, and his eyebrow quirked up at her last comment. "Are you saying that that I’m good looking, Jana?" He asked curiously wondering if she was trying to flirt, or if he had heard things incorrectly.

Best of the Best // Evily

violetmillers:

Vivan laid back on her bed with a groan. She had almost had enough relaxation for the calendar year, so much so that she missed the smoggy New York air. Grabbing her phone, she groaned once again as she tried to think of something to do with all this time on her hands. She didn’t want to mingle with the others, the little bitch was roaming the halls somewhere. Rather, she fired off a text message to a person who could possibly cheer her up.

TEXT: What are you doing?

She sighed and let herself sink back into the pillows and waited for Evan’s answer.

Why hadn’t this retreat come to an end yet? Evan was ready to go back and get away from all of the trees, and nature. All he wanted was to be in his office where he could feel like he had complete control over everything that was going on. Here? He couldn’t check on anything. His phone made a sound, and for the first time this retreat he realized that he hadn’t checked his phone once. A smirk formed on Evan’s face at the sight of Violet’s text.

TEXT: Nothing. Wishing I were in the city. What are you doing?

He waited to see what response he would get back, and started thinking about whether she would ask to see him, or not. Thoughts of the night he was in his house entered his mind, and his body jumped up, and he suddenly did a back flip in the open space of the room. FUCK. Not again. Some asshole did this to me. This wasn’t the first time he’d done a back flip randomly, and he wondered which one it was that had forced him to do this, knowing it only made him angrier.

Were We Supposed to Scavenger Hunt? || Jana & Evan

le-jana-hart:

"I wouldn’t say I’m an expert," she replied. Sure she had gone on hiking trips before with her Mom when she lived in Seattle but that was years ago. She couldn’t remember the last time she had been on a hike. "But yes, I do recall how much you hate hiking so I’ll try to make it as fun for you as possible."

"Let’s see, what were we supposed to find," she pondered, trying to recall the list. "I know there are pink X’s on the trees, although I can’t remember how many…four, maybe? A quarry….a picture of the skyline from the highest point…a couple water features…a stone, a feather and a maple leaf….yeah, I think that’s it. I don’t think they said what the prize would be, though." Jana shrugged as she kept her eyes peeled for something. She turned around and smiled as he pushed a branch to the side. "Enjoying yourself yet?" she asked sarcastically.

Evan rolled his eyes at the fact that they had no clue as to what the prize would be. “In other words this entire thing is all for nothing. I suppose we should just try to find whatever the heck we can of this list of stuff.” They continued to walk along a little bit, and Evan couldn’t help but laugh at Jana’s sarcastic question. “Oh yeeeeah, I’m really  enjoying myself. I can’t imagine anything else that I would rather be doing at this very moment other than traipsing through the forest looking for random shit.”

Taking a moment, he leaned his shoulder against a tree, and eyed Jana from head to toe. “What about you? Are you enjoying this whole scavenger hunt thing?” He asked curiously. “Or are you thinking what I’m thinking and trying to see if there’s something more interesting that we could be doing with our time?”

Hiking… I Guess I Do That Now || Jana & Evan

le-jana-hart:

"I try my best to, but some of them…well, it’s hard to see the good behind some of them. Those I tend to forget and ignore bringing up." She would have been lying to say she was a little disappointed that he didn’t want to go swimming but she decided not to push the subject. "Well, that is a shame…the swimming part. I understand the hiking bit. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea. The city life is definitely more appealing to some, what with the people and the technology and….other things, I guess. So if you’re not going for a hike or a swim, what do you plan on doing with your afternoon? Stand around and contemplate what else sucks about hiking?"

image

"Oh, I don’t know yet. I mean I have come pretty far. Chances are it could take me forever to get back to the cabin. Then I can get ready for whatever the hell else there is. I could maybe watch some TV. Maybe I’ll sneak into a cabin that has internet access and actually pretend that I’m somewhere that is remotely civilized." This brought him back to a comment that she had made only moments ago. "So, the city has people and the technology… and what other things were you thinking about?" He asked, genuinely curious as to what her response would be.
