Trying To Be Strong, Shocked
Savannah let herself into the penthouse apartment silently.

She had been gone longer than she had planned on -- but the last few days had been required so that she could be healed before Johnny saw that she had gotten injured. It had been a tough case, but the bad guy had been taken care of and the Council was focusing on the clean up right now.

Once inside the apartment, she frowned when she saw all of the empty bottles of alcohol laying about. If her job was driving Johnny to the point of drinking this much, then they really needed to have a talk.

She set up a pot of coffee to brew as she cleaned up the outer rooms and got rid of all of the bottles. How did he drink so many? She had only ever seen this much alcohol all in one place when she was in a bar.

When the coffee was done, she poured a cup for both of them and then headed to the bedroom.

A simple spell caused the door to unlatch and push itself open. Her eyes adjusted to the dimness and then Savannah felt a large part of herself rip away in her chest.

Johnny ... her Johnny ... was in their bed with some blonde. The pain in her hands caused her to look down and then drop the coffee cups when she realized she had used a spell in her shock to make them both boil over.

The shattering of the cups caused Johnny to wake up and she watched him look at the blond in confusion and then whip his head to look at her.

"Savannah ..."

She shook her head, eyes burning with tears as she stepped back.

"Baby, don't --"

Savannah turned and ran.

From behind her, she heard Johnny swearing and she kept running, slamming the penthouse door open and leaving it swinging as she made her way to the elevator. She knew that Johnny would most likely get dressed before he took to the air to find her. She had thirty seconds at the most to get downstairs, cast a blur spell and get somewhere she felt safe and he couldn't find her.

When the elevator opened in the lobby, Savannah started running, hitting the street and not even thinking about where she was going as she stuck to the sidewalk so she could cast her spell.

It was dark when Savannah finally decided to stop moving and pull her cellphone out of her pocket. She ignored the messages from Johnny ... and the ones from Sue, too. Her hands were shaking as she managed to pull up her contacts list and push a button to make a call before she did something stupid and tried to keep running away.

Isabel was at work, helping supervise the set up of one of the ballrooms for a company meeting that was kicking off the next morning. Fortunately things were well enough in hand that she could actually take a call instead of letting it go to voicemail.

Recognizing the number, she smiled. "Savannah, hi! Are you back? How did it go?"
4th-Jun-2012 01:57 pm (UTC)
"I-Isabel." Savannah tried to take a deep breath. "Johnny .. he was... and a blond ... in our bed ..."
4th-Jun-2012 03:41 pm (UTC)
It took Isabel a moment or two to process those words, because yeah, not exactly what she was expecting to hear.

"HE DID WHAT????" was probably shouted at the phone a littler louder then it should have been, at least judging by the number of set-up staff that stopped what they were doing to stare at Isabel in curiosity. She held up five fingers to signify she was taking a five minute break then stalked out of the room and into a nearby storeroom.

"Sweetie where are you?"
4th-Jun-2012 03:48 pm (UTC)
"Found him this morning." Savannah swallowed, trying to get her voice under control. "Uhm .. let me check ..." She came back after a moment. "I seem to be at the Statue of Liberty."

No, she didn't know how she had gotten there.

Of all the stupid things Johnny could have done...Isabel was pissed, but for Savannah's sake, she tried to put it aside and focus on the other girl.

"What do you want to do? I'm taking a guess that you want to get out of New York for a while. Do you want to come here? How about Roswell, Mom would be glad for someone to fuss over for a few days."

4th-Jun-2012 04:16 pm (UTC)
"I don't know where to go Isabel," she murmured. "I just ... I know I can't go back there. I can't." She was silent for a moment. "How could he?"
4th-Jun-2012 04:24 pm (UTC)
"You come here. You go to your mom's or Paige and Lucas. Where ever you want to go," Isabel said quietly. "Take some time and figure out where to go from here."

"As for how, why he did it? He's a hot-headed idiot with more pride then brains apparently."
4th-Jun-2012 04:32 pm (UTC)
"I don't ... I don't know if I can ever forgive him for this." Or trust him again. She cleared her throat. "Can I come see you? I can't go to Paige and Lucas like this right now. The case was not as smooth as we expected it to be and the last thing they need right now ..."

... was to see her falling apart.

Isabel loved Johnny. He'd been a good friend over the years. But this..."I wouldn't blame you if you didn't. So things are unforgivable."

"You're more then welcome here, for as long as you need. Do you want to book a portal? Or should I call Wyatt?" Isabel was not looking forward to that conversation.
4th-Jun-2012 04:43 pm (UTC)
"It would be cowardly of me to let you tell Wyatt about this," she said softly.

The thought of being a coward appealed to her, but she couldn't do that to Isabel.

"I'll book a portal and I'll tell you both what... what happened." She sighed. "Maybe you can keep him calm enough?"

She thought of something. "He ... Johnny ... he'll probably call you and Wyatt looking for me. I haven't responded to his texts or calls since ... I just... "

Words, Savannah. They were called words.

"I'll work on it." Or at least try to channel his energy into more productive pursuits like demon hunting. Although Isabel had a a feeling she was going to have a hard time keeping him from attempting to kick Johnny's ass himself.

"Don't worry about him calling. Depending on the situation I'll either play dumb or let him know exactly what an ass he's been. Either way, he's not coming near you if you don't want to see him."
4th-Jun-2012 04:52 pm (UTC)
"I don't."

They were words that she never thought she'd say when it came to Johnny, but she meant them.

"Then you won't. I promise."

One of the set-up guys poked his head into the room and motioned that Isabel was needed. Which was not what she wanted to hear at the moment but the job did pay the bills.

"I've got to go. They need me at set-up. Book the portal and let yourself in if I'm not back or Wyatt's not there okay?"

"Thanks, Isabel. I appreciate it and I'll see you soon."
