He can't continue putting it off. Even with the reduced impulse to make fiscally irresponsible decisions, not working was making that strain more prominent every day. Arashi's return gave him excuses to put it off, but that only worked so far. And Brody wasn't working. Brody hadn't been working for a long time now. He didn't even see the young vampire go out anymore. They still had a conversations, he still sounded the same, but when they weren't talking, it was as if Brody had gone... distant. Not frighteningly so, like Harvestman himself sometimes did, just not really there.

It was better, he reasons, than being suicidal.

None of this made him any more eager to do it. If he could contrive a way to put it off any more - or a way to make next month's due rent to vanish - he would. Short of asking Arashi for handouts. He was determined to never ask Arashi for handouts, despite them long passing the period where the risk of the older vampire being used had been real.

It's still Arashi he goes to first, if only to find a way out of doing it. Or at least a way out of going alone.

Arashi has yet to return to work himself, although he's handling it by keeping himself nearly as busy as usual with other projects, some of which he doesn't discuss with Harvestman, while others are more or less obvious. The ceiling is fixed one day while Harvestman is out; he simply leaves the house, and when he comes back, there's no sign of charred, splintered, or bloodstained wood anywhere.

The main priority after that seems to be the process of selecting himself an assistant at Necropolis, basically for just such occasions as this (not to mention allowing him just a bit more free time, ideally speaking). Occasionally he'll share an applicant's information with Harvestman just to make him laugh. So far, no one has particularly impressed him, although he's put several names aside. And that is the extent to which any demons have a presence in his home.

He hasn't passed on Charlie's letter. Harvestman is still raw from the Brisbane issue, and Arashi doesn't want to pile it on him. Not that it will be easy -- in fact, he has his suspicions that this will be just another train wreck -- but to have it all come at once just seems cruel. It's the same reason why he hasn't even mentioned that he ran into Charlie again, along with the fact that he meant what he'd said to her.

He's getting out of the shower when Harvestman reappears, and he goes to his closet to pick out a suit while speaking over his shoulder. "What's up? You seem anxious."

"You mean your American coven Master." He pulls down the outfit Harvestman pointed out, glances it over, and ultimately deems it appropriate enough, so he brings it back out into the bedroom and starts to get himself dressed. "Give him a call. I'm sure he'd be thrilled you're even asking."

"You could always go job hunting on your own. I'm sure that'd be fun." Arashi tosses a smirk at Harvestman while pulling on his shirt. "I've got my own coven thing. Not sure what it's about, the message was sort of weird. Why? You still need me to go with you?"

While Harvestman handles the buttons, Arashi pulls on the accompanying vest and drapes the tie around his shoulders. "I'm sure if you give Master Nicholas a heads up, he can make sure Ellis is on an errand or something."

"Well, I don't like the idea of him giving you a hard time."

He threads and knots the tie without even looking, his hands moving in a swift, brief blur, and then he's tucking it into the waistcoat and adjusting the length. "Look, I have someplace to be," he says, raising an amused eyebrow. "You can ruin my wardrobe later. It'll be a celebration of your new job."

This is no small operation that Harvestman has basically gift-wrapped for every vampire on Arashi's side of the nexus, and Arashi is gone for a while. Given the nature of the situation, his phone is turned off and left off, since he can't afford to be taking phone calls in the middle of stealth, and it's not exactly reasonable for him to be texting a play-by-play commentary to Harvestman, either. Not that he would ever try.

Not all vampires in the world are gunning for Brisbane personally, however. Weiyuan is still just trying to get a sense of the world, and is staying well out of the way of the Sovereign's coven for now. He returns in the middle of the night, so at the very least, Harvestman is not alone in the house for very long.

Weiyuan pauses, not answering immediately, but not moving, either. Eventually he responds without actually taking another step in any direction.

"What did he do now?"

Weiyuan's eyes widen slightly.

"Oh dear," he murmurs. "That's... very dangerous. But he won't be alone. I'm sure he's very glad that you care enough to be worried."

The question confuses him. "How can I tell, what?"

Weiyuan says little else to Harvestman that night, because there is little else to be said. He's never been one for superficial platitudes, in any case. The comfort he does offer is simply his quiet presence, whether Harvestman finds comfort in that or not; he doesn't leave again, while Arashi is gone, so at least the house is never completely empty.

Arashi is gone for over a day, swiftly encroaching upon two. It's no small thing, to take out the head of an entire enemy operation, even with the tools to catch him as surprised and vulnerable as would ever be possible. Still, for all of Harvestman's difficulty appreciating the level of organization shown by Arashi's sort of vampire, especially compared to his own, that organization is exactly what is needed at times like this, more than wild strength and a ravenous lust for blood. And that's why after nearly 48 hours of radio silence, Arashi practically kicks in the door of his own home, and doesn't even bother to take off his shoes.

"John!"

Common precedent sends him to the living room first, where he finds Harvestman, just as expected. Arashi doesn't say anything else at first, just tugs him up off the couch, cups his face, and kisses him.

"Figured," Arashi replies, brushing Harvestman's cheekbones with his thumbs. "But I owe you big time. Actually, every vampire in this world basically owes you one."

Arashi actually laughs -- the sound is almost relieved -- and tugs Harvestman back in, pressing a kiss against his cheek. "I wouldn't worry about that. The details will be glossed over, or covered up... but there are still some very important people who know what you've done for all of us. Because this is huge, John. It really is."
