AKA the entire series

He had been working every day, except for Sunday, and going to school just to keep a place to live. His church was unforgiving in their service, but he didn't mind. As long as he got enough money to eat and a place to live, it was better than nothing. Still, Cyprus Gray was an unhappy teenager. It had only been a year since his parents died, and life was still hard.

Lately, however, things had gotten somewhat more interesting. By which it is meant that the priest was being possessed. Mars recognized the signs right away. Subtle things, but things that had been burned into his brain since a child. Of course, despite his rather great knowledge of the supernatural, he had no idea how to fight back. This is what being a rebellious little teenaged brat got you.

Which is why he had attempted to contact a few local hunters. His parents had a few acquaintances, but all of them were far too busy to help him. He'd have to wait it out, and hope that things didn't get worse. Meanwhile, he watched the stupid, amateurish demon attempt to force people into sin. He was doing a terrible job, and practically everyone knew something was wrong with him. What an idiot.

Cyprus lay on the church pew in front of the altar, taking a break from his sweeping. It was tiring.

A black Elantra pulled up in front of the church, parking onyl a few feet from the steps. A man in a neat black suit got out, slicking back his unruly hair.

"Hello," he said brightly. "My name is Father Priestly--please, call me Priestly. I heard you guys are having a bit of a problem lately? I came to help out, in any way I can." He extended a hand.

"Who might you be, young sir?"

Cyprus stood up, self consciously slicking back his own hair. The gaudy dye had been more formidable than he thought; it hadn't completely faded away yet, and he always hoped that people didn't assume he was a hooligan because of it.

"Father Priestly?" He asked, looking happy to hear it was a priest. "We should, uhm, talk somewhere else. Father Mason should be back any time, and he hates it when I have visitors.

"Oh, and my name is Cyprus Gray. I work here for the time being." He smiled at him, relieved that someone had finally come to exorcise the dumbass demon from the Father. He only hoped that Priestly understood why he wanted to speak elsewhere. He couldn't exactly out the demon in front of him. He'd just make a run for it.

"Sure thing, kiddo," he said fondly, patting Cyprus on the shoulder. "Am I driving us someplace, or shall we talk inside? I have no preference, but I'm guessing you don't get out much if you work here. The Lord is the boss that never sleeps, after all!" He chuckled at his own joke.

"I like your hair, by the way--the color is such a lovely shade. Red is my favorite."

He groaned at the mention of his hair.

"Please, let's not talk about that..." He grumbled, still attempting to slick back all the little cowlicks on the top of his head. Stupid remnants of a punk mullet. "B-but we could walk to the ice cream parlor down the street. I'm allowed one break a day, and I usually spend it there."

He headed for the ice cream parlor, checking his wallet for money. He had enough.

He laughed, smiling fondly at Cyprus.

"I agree, ice cream is delicious--it sounds like a perfect place to talk. You should tell me more about yourself, too."

"Myself?" He was slightly confused. "But why? There's not much to say, really. I work at the church for a place to live and money to eat."

He shrugged, putting his hands into the pockets of his baggy jeans. His wifebeater was black and holy, but it made his ancient rosary stand out against it. He glanced down and toyed with it, with once hand.

"You seem interesting enough to me," he said. "What a kid like you doing working for the Lord?"

"Well my parents died." He replied nonchalantly, even though the memory pained him. "So, I needed somewhere to live and money for food. The church took me in. I don't even get minimum wage, but I don't have to pay rent, so it's fine.

"Why are you so interested, anyway? All my parents friends were standoffish, at best. None of them liked to get too involved." He opened the doors to the parlor, stepping over to the display of ice cream flavors. He had tried every single one of them -- twice.

"Huh? You don't say. My parents are dead too, but I'll assume yours were nicer." He glanced at the display thoughtfully.

"What's your favorite flavor? I'll buy you a cone."

"You dodged the question." He replied, looking over the ice cream flavors. "Besides, I'm buying. I was the one who wanted to talk, so the least I can do is pay."

He smiled at Priestly. "I think today I'll get the cheesecake kind."

"May I get strawberry, then?" he asked. "I do so love strawberries.

"Now, Cyprus, what would you like to talk to me about? Is it the demon?"

"Of course it's the demon." He replied, rolling his eyes. He moved over the counter, smiling at the teenager working there. He was a familiar face; a kid from school Cyprus was barely friends with. He ordered, then turned back to Priestly. "It's Father Mason. But I'm assuming you know more than I do. It started a few weeks ago. The guy's a complete idiot, though...he doesn't even try to act like the Father. Everyone's suspicious."

He took his ice cream and sat down in the corner by the window.

"So you want me to get the old father back," he said, licking his ice cream very suggestively. "I think I can do that. Tell me, when did the demon arrive?"

Slightly disturbed by the way he ate, Cyprus tried to pretend that it was just his imagination. Though when he realized that implied something worse, he just looked away.

"It was exactly three weeks ago, on Sunday. It was just after the daily sermon and whatnot. He started acting suspicious. So I took note of the day. He said he was going out to buy me some food, which isn't unusual, but he came back with nothing and seemingly forgot what he was even doing."

He took a bite of his ice cream.

"I'd say that's when it started."

"Okay, interesting," he said. "Had the father mentioned anything strange prior to his possession?" he asked, creating a small hole in the scoop of ice cream with his tongue and licking inside it.

He just sort of stared at him. Not because of what he said, obviously, but because what was he doing? He was slightly horrified. No wonder his parents had warned him about other demon hunters. Even so, the man was a priest; he could trust him.

"Not really, no. He didn't seem to know what my parents did, either." He replied, somewhat tentatively eating his ice cream. He almost didn't want to anymore. "I don't think he willingly let the demon in, or had some sort of conspiracy. Honestly, I'm not even sure what the demon is thinking..."

"Why don't you take it down, if you're a hunter?" he asked, genuinely curious. "If you don't mind me asking."

"...Me?" He asked, surprised. "I'm not a hunter!"

He frowned suddenly. Well, that was only half true. He was only half a hunter.

"...It's complicated." He grumbled, unwilling to admit the fact that he had basically ruined his own life by being rebellious.

"Say no more," he said, waving a hand. "I won't request your help." He tongued the ice cream even more, flicking his tongue inside the little hole with increasing rapidity.

"C-can you stop that?" He asked finally. "And if you need my help, I can help you. I'm not useless!"

"...Stop what?" he asked, frowning. "Did I say something wrong? Is it my accent?"

"No, stop eating like that!" He insisted, groaning loudly. "Just. Stop. I'm going to take back the ice cream that's technically mine since I paid for it if you don't just eat it right!"

"...Oh," he said, looking even more confused than before. Then he beamed.

"I didn't realize there was a right way to eat ice cream--can you show me? I do love to learn from friends. That's what we are, right? Friends?" He winked. "Though I suppose if the lesson doesn't stick, I can always return to sundae school." He did his best to hide his giggles. "....Get it? Like ice cream sundaes?"

"We're not friends!" He replied, quite loudly. A few people turned to give him strange looks. "Just...you know what you're doing, so stop it."

He took another bite from his ice cream, glaring at the man across from him. What sort of weird demon hunter was he? None of his parents friends had ever been like this.
