Summary: Gabriel flees Heaven Word Count: 842 Rated: Teen Notes: Enochian in bold. This is compliant with my “By the Grace of God” ‘verse, but is not exclusively part of the series. More of an exploration into Gabriel’s history.
A selection of drawings by Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759 –1840). Pierre was sometimes called the “the Raphael of flowers” for his botanical illustrations of exquisite detail and beauty. He collaborated with many botanists and painted the flowers found in the gardens of French chateaux and further afield. He was also an official court artist for the famous Queen Marie Antoinette and after the French revolution Joséphine de Beauharnais, the first wife of Napoleon Bonaparte, became his patron.

“Romance isn’t dead after all,” Raphael drawls in wry amusement, eyeing the bouquet of withered flowers Simon is proudly holding in his hands. They might’ve been roses at one point, but most of the petals have fallen off and those that have not are wrinkled and dry and curling in on themselves.
Simon looks sheepish. “I meant to give them weeks ago, but I, uh… forgot?” His voice tilts higher towards the end of the sentence. He shoots an apologetic smile, his teeth flashing, and Raphael feels like rolling his eyes but decides against it.
“Well,” he starts, taking the flowers with an excessive amount of care considering their current state. “I appreciate the gesture. Really, I do.“ And he finds that the does. It’s the first time anyone’s bought him flowers, and he can’t help but feel a little bit smitten.
Simon beams at him, repeating his well known mannerism of biting his lower lip nervously. Raphael’s heart does things it’s not meant to do, such as flutter and skip a beat.
They spend the rest of the night sitting on the roof of the hotel, watching the stars. Simon keeps pointing out constellations. Raphael rests his head on his shoulder, and feels he’s at home.
If Raphael likes flowers then give him his favorite ones! By the way Si, he told us you already make him very happy and that he feels like the luckiest guy in the world! ;)
Simon -He said that? He’s really sweet, mostly he’s sweet in spanish. Which is why I’m learning how to speak it. But I think I will get him flowers. I know he likes them, and it’s not like I can just go out and buy him chocolates. I’m not sure what kind he likes, but I’ll ask Lily when I can. She’ll know. She knows like everything there is to know about Raph and the clan.
