It's a slippery slope after that.

Emmett shrugged. “I tried,” he offered weakly. Criminal mastermind was not his forte by any means, but hey, that was what Rose was for.

“Also, stop talking about my child like that,” he added. “She’s sensitive.” He glanced down at Sonny, reaching down to tilt back the cover on the carrier temporarily. She was still asleep. Bless her heart. She was definitely his child. And not stupid, horrible, dumb, ugly, hairy toe Ruben. Emmett was a way, way better dad than Ruben. Of course, a lamp post or a clothespin were probably better fathers than Ruben. Probably a rusty nail, too. Sonny had two daddies but one of them was a terrible human being.

“So I imagine we want to destroy Ruben without actually hurting him physically? Because hurting him physically sounds… impossible.” Emmett stated. If anything, he knew that he could probably never actually inflict any damage to that brute. Danny had tried and mostly failed, and he was way better at life/everything than Emmett was. Maybe Rose could hurt Ruben, though, and Emmett could be a lookout or something. He wasn’t super into violence - that one time excluded - in no small part because of his natural pacifism but also partially because, like, he knew Holland wouldn’t like it. But sometimes desperate times call for desperate measure, just like that one time. “How do we hurt him, like, emotionally?” he asked. “Does Ruben even have emotions?” No, Ruben, wanting to punch stuff does not count as an emotion. That seemed to be as complex as that Swedish jerk got.

        Oh Merlin, Emmett’s fake baby was sensitive ? Rose sighed internally. They really needed to get him a puffskein or a kneazle or something, anything that was more healthy to become emotionally... more
        • We could go skiing, sure. - Emmett, Sat Aug 26 12:00
          Emmett listened in horror. He punched a rock ? What the Hell was wrong with that guy? And he would be all about his hair. Vain bastard. He did kinda wish Rose didn’t talk like that about Camilla,... more
