This is about a second before he realizes what his powers are doing 🙂
My poor darlings. I really want to do their prequel story but it’d be the saddest thing I’ve ever written – it would end where Illegal Tender begins… with them dying. But they’re so damn cute together. Here’s a tiny look at their first meeting and here’s a little story: Ellie begins work at the Agency as a resident physician and John of course falls head over heels in love at first sight. Who wouldn’t – Ellie is a total fox. And she’s smart. Plus his little unconscious love shocks don’t hurt her because she’s invulnerable. But Ellie knows who he is and is very wary. She eventually learns that he and his father are trapped within the corporation. When she learns about how old they really are it’s a little disorienting but by that time she’s in love with him.
I’d say Ellie is about 23 years old here. John is nearing 212 which is young for a being made of pure energy. His dad is nearly 500 years old ^^;
