Gabriel merely sat by and watched. He was still an easy prey for those as practiced in the arts as Lily and Ekora. But Faus was far from blind to the taste of the ethereal trail snaking through the air. It smelled of the sweetest essence. And for a moment, it had brought about certain pleasurable thoughts within Gabriel's mind. But his conscious knowledge of the magic he sensed kept him resistent, and the grasp of his daughter's hand completely sobered his thoughts for the moment.
Faus waved a hand, sending all of his servants to vacate the room. It was small enough that Gabriel could watch everyone from his chair, carefully gazing over Lily's own aids. "I've had enough tutelage to know when you might try something. And my daughter is far more experienced with weaving the magical arts than almost anyone I have seen... I am perfectly fine with the three of us speaking alone, in this room..."
Ekora visibly hesitated before removing her hand from her father's powerful bicep, noticably cautious of the seductive baroness. But then she looked down to his face. Gabriel watched Lily most of all, offering only a genuine smile the entire time, despite her attempt to bewitch him. His eyes, however, were visibly giving off a subtle heat. What Lily could do to a man with her magic was something that entertained his thoughts, to be certain. But Gabriel also knew that his own natural presence was a raw force few others could compare to. Just as Lily had been attempting to beguile him through her magical weave, Gabriel's eyes burned with a raw urge. The more one looked upon his gaze, the more his intentions would become clear. And the more it would cloud their thoughts as well.
Gabriel rested his chin atop his clasping fingers, smiling wide at Lily. "And please... You may call me Gabriel, if I may be so bold as to call you Lily..." His deep words echoed through the air a bit, carrying a soothing rhythm that hinted to warming ballads that played upon emotions. The shine of his apple red iris' never wandered too long from Lily's visage. And Ekora found herself blushing a bit when she first saw his expression, closing her eyes immediately and regaining control of her heated face. She then returned her gaze to Lily, also watching the baroness, but with very differing reasons than her father.
