Sorry for taking so long to update.. Had to deal with other FF demons. Anyway here's the next bit:
Silence rang throughout the kitchen following Mimi's announcement, both Sky and Oliver staring at the blonde girl in unabashed shock and Jack trying to hide a grin.
"You'd really do that?" Schuyler asked hesitantly, looking Mimi up and down in bemusement. "You'd really help me?"
Mimi rolled her eyes and lifted herself onto the kitchen counter in one graceful motion. "I said I would so I will," She tossed her head petulantly and pointed at Sky. "Don't make me into a liar Van Alen,"
"But?" Sky blustered, looking at Mimi as though she had grown three heads. "You hate me,"
"Were you not listening to this conversation?" Mimi's voice snapped out, exasperation thrumming through her tone. "Despite the fact that you attempted to steal my fiancee and your rather," Her face twisted with revulsion. "dubious parentage, you did save my life and Abaddon thinks that there's something about you worth saving. I have walked to hell, so I can't promise that assisting you is the same, but I'll be damned if I'll let my fellow Blue Bloods suffer because they don't believe you about Lucifer." She reached out one elegant hand and snagged a handful of grapes from a nearby fruit bowl.
"Okay so you'll help?" Oliver jumped in, noting Sky's lost expression. "How, won't she be under arrest or something?"
"House arrest," Jack confirmed, "However, it won't be rigidly enforced. On the day of the trial, Mimi will relieve one of the Venators from their duty." He glanced at his sister, who nodded as she popped a shiny red grape into her perfect mouth. "At that point, you will leave your home through another exit. Oliver will then meet you with a supply of money and fake documents. They will be totally legit and will raise no red flags, from there get to the airport and leave the country. After that, you're on your own."
"Won't you get into trouble for letting me go?" Sky asked, staring at the nonchalant Mimi with confusion.
"No," Mimi said shortly, spitting the pips into her hand and placing them on the side. "There will be a distraction which would have made it impossible for us to determine when you left. More than that, you don't need to know. All you have to worry about is getting to Europe and finding the other gates."
Sorry it's not more, but I've had a hellish time with writing this lately.
