The first time it happens, Aziraphale hasn’t seen Crowley since that house-viewing that didn’t happen.
“How about we just go see it now?” Aziraphale blurts out, impatient and anxious with the pent-up tension he’s been carrying around for the past week. Crowley is unnaturally calm, leaning against the doorway, looking down at Aziraphale with distant politeness.
“See what?” he says.
Aziraphale flails. “The house, my dear, the house we were supposed to check out!”
“Ah,” Crowley hums. “That.”
And no matter how much Aziraphale stares and squints and tries to see something beneath the surface – the indifference of Crowley’s expression is genuine. Something is wrong. Something is very, very wrong.
