Tamera bursts into giggles for a moment or three and then takes his arm as she says, "You look nice too, but like, you also look hella nervous."

"Sorry, new church combined with my first time in church since my change. And to top it off, I'm bringing a date. Right?" The question is asked hopefully.

"Hey, Angel, you're supposed to ask her before you're leaving, and if you're asking her to a church, it should be 'cause you're gettin' hitched. You didn't knock her up, did you?" Larry asks with a broad, teasing grin.

Tamera sputters from the effort of containing her laughter but ultimately fails to hold it in.

"No, no, I'm not pregnant," she manages in between laughs, "Not unless there's going to be a second immaculate conception."

"Larry, we're about to go to church," 聲gel says. "That sort of humor isn't really appropriate. You should wait until after church. That's what my uncle Mat燰s always did."

He gives Tammy an odd glance at her immaculate conception joke. But then smiles. "So, on to church then?"

And so the three of them get into Larry's truck and head off to the church. Tammy sits in the middle, and 聲gel finds that when he gets in at Larry's insistence, this mechanical beast doesn't flinch nearly so much as he expected it to.

After about five minutes or so, Tammy leans over against 聲gel to get his attention and asks him, "What was that look for?"

聲gel whispers back, "Given your ability, I wouldn't joke about immaculate conception. I think your power is really cool, but it's one that will bring out the crazies like bears to honey."

Louder he adds, "I'm sure you won't know the order of service, just watch me and follow along."

He turns to Larry. "Larry, how traditional is your church?"

"Oh, about middle of the road, I figure," Larry replies with his attention primarily on the road in front of him.

"Good, my Latin is terrible. I know the important phrases but that's it. A less conservative church should have the sermon in English so Tammy won't be completely lost."

聲gel watches the route they take. He is curious about local communities. As they ride, he reaches out to hold Tammy's hand.

Tammy takes his hand shortly after he begins to move his.

"I dunno about that. Like, it's related to French and Spanish, so like, it could be interesting to try and decipher it on the fly."

聲gel shakes his head in disbelief. "I keep forgetting how crazy smart you are Tammy. How many languages do you know? I've enough trouble with English and Spanish. I tried to learn a bit of Irish from a book, but got nowhere."

Tammy blushes and reminds 聲gel, "I'm not that smart, really, my brother is the one in Mensa after all."

"Is that so? Well, answer the question, how many languages do you speak?" Larry says.

Literally caught in between the two men, Tamera sighs and counts them on her fingers as she says, "English, Spanish, French, Japanese, and Chinese, so, five languages that I speak fluently."

Larry actually takes his eyes off the road in order to blink at Tamera, then he looks back to where he is driving and mutters, "Not that smart my shiny white ass, girl, jeez."

聲gel laughs a bit at that. "Your brother may be the one who joined Mensa. That doesn't mean you couldn't have joined it. You didn't join just to let him have that didn't you? You're always supporting everyone else and do yourself a disservice sometimes."

He squeezes her hand gently. "Your happiness is important too you know. And sometimes you need to take a rest from carrying the world on your shoulders. Even Atlas needed a break."

OOC Yes, I know Atlas held up the heavens not the Earth but 聲gel doesn't know mythology that well.

"That's not..."

Tamera sighs and leans into 聲gel a bit more, "That's not how that happened. Like, he's my older brother, right? And he is a genius, even if he's less expressive than the Professor, he always left an impression at school. So like, whenever I would do something sciency as a little kid, the adults at school would always be like, 'Oh, be sure to thank your brother for helping you with that,' or like, 'Your brother is so nice, letting you take all the credit for something like this.' So I just got to be like, dude, whatever, drawing is more fun anyway. And there is still no way that IQ test was right, even if we say I'm smarter than he is or something."

聲gel looks at Tammy. "I'm sorry I misread the situation. I made an assumption and I shouldn't have done that.

"As an only child I don't understand the sibling thing. But I can see how that would get frustrating. But I suspect that the test was right."

"I am so putting you in the dog house if you keep that up, dude," Tammy says while looking at 聲gel with a mischevous grin.

"What score do you think I got, anyway?"

"Believe it or not, I actually took an IQ test once. I scored 118 which put me just above the average range. To me anything above 130 is amazing but you're better than that, so, I would guess above 140," he answers with complete sincerity.

Tammy leans up, bracing herself with one hand on 聲gels shoulder and another on his chest and says, "Not one word to anyone, okay?"

Then she leans close enough to his ear that her breath tickles and whispers a number.

"I won't say a word," he says with a smile and a chuckle.

He looks back to Larry. "Hey, I know you've already done a lot for me, but do you know of any part-time jobs for someone like me? I work hard and I'm reliable."
