The man only smirked. He watched the boy stumble off the couch and over to him, satisfied he was going to cooperate. When Daniel then chose not to follow but to lead, Vlad chuckled softly. Hands held neatly behind his back, the elder followed the young boy down the hall.
"My boy," His tone growing a bit condescending, "I have no intentions of doing anything but aiding you." They continued down the winding halls slowly seeing as Danny was just barely shambling and needed the walks for support. Vlad followed closely as they made their way into his library, through his hidden entrance, and into the cold metallic lab.
"Now, why don’t you get yourself comfortable?" He motioned toward the metal table in the center of the cold space.
The cool air sent a shiver through him, yet when a hand was traced along the cool metal of the table, when he propped himself up and felt the chilled surface through his clothes, he couldn’t help but be appreciative of it.
Arms held loosely around himself, eyes following the older man as he walked around and made the necessary preparations, the nerves began working themselves up inside him. You’re going to be fine, he told himself over and over. Having Vlad’s word was a strange thing. If you weren’t ready for the consequences of him spontaneously changing his mind, you were just a sorry fool. Like Jack.
His shoe and sock phased through him, semi solid from the knee below on his right leg without warning, and Danny kicked the other foot’s off when he was able and let them drop to the ground.
“How does this work.” he asked between heavy sniffles.

“No, of course not. You’re too young to grasp the concept so why should you care?”
“Maybe because it’s not important enough to care about. I’m fourteen, Mr. Gray. Not seven. And believe it or not, I have bigger things to worry about than— whatever it was your were going on about.”
