When probed about her… well, feeding habits, Esmee insists they all relocate to her dressing room, where other customers can’t overhear. The group is hesitant but agrees, and Esmee elaborates on her habits: she can exist simply on the emotional overflow of mortals around her. She speaks a bit about the nature of what she and the CEO are, and where they come from. It is possible to return “home,” but difficult. She suggests that the CEO may just as probably be weaving his children out of thin air than receiving them from ‘home.’
Their questions sated, Esmee offers her assistance in the future and bids them all to return whenever they so like. Or rather, she tries. Something Gabriel pulls off puts the woman’s composure off kilter, making for a very awkward exit. The group is in agreement to leave… except for Al who, having been completely smitten with Esmee and potentially reciprocally, angrily turns on Gabriel for ruining her chances. Gabriel informs the group (sans Vincent and Sophia who have snuck off for some hanky panky) that Esmee lied about only eating residual emotions and had attempted to use some sort of powers on them – which he had subsequently negated. Al is still up in frustrated arms until Gabriel takes her by surprise by asking her out on a date.
