He watches.

Always from a distance.

He's not strong enough for a confrontation, not yet anyway, but he is inexplicably drawn to Mohinder in much the same way he had been to his father Chandra. There was a man who understood him - despite the fact that that understanding led him to call Gabriel a monster.

Sylar knows Mohinder is the sole person on this planet who understands him. One in over 6 billion, but then Sylar realizes he's even more unique than Mohinder. In all of human history, there has never been a human being with all the power he possesses.

Although Peter Petrelli...

Sylar shakes the thought from his head. When the time comes, he will kill Peter and take all his powers. Integrating each new power had been a rush. The idea of getting multiple powers from Peter gives him an almost sexual thrill inside.

Mohinder emerges from the bodega across the street carrying a carton of milk, most likely for Molly. He glances around a little, but he's lost his hypervigilance in the last couple of weeks and has started looking almost carefree in his everyday errands.

He stops to tie his shoe, leaving the carton on top of a nearby mailbox. Sylar steps out of the shadowed archway that conceals him, raises a finger and concentrates. A tiny slice appears in the cardboard carton and milk spills out - white rivulets sluicing down the side of the dark metal mailbox.

Mohinder straightens up and sees the mess, frowning. He tosses the ruined carton in the trash and heads back into the bodega for another.

At the door he pauses, turns around and surveys the street.

Sylar ducks back into the shadows, the ghost of a smirk on his lips.

He could kill Mohinder now with just a thought and he's sorely tempted to, but he doesn't.

He lets Mohinder take milk home to his blasted little moppet.

When the time is right, he'll kill her fast.

Mohinder? He's going to take his time with him...

Gah! I wrote Sylar!fic!

I truly don't get the Mylar thing, but at least one person has told me this *is* Mylar.


Not one of my better fic, but the muse wanted Sylar and I didn't. I guess this is what happens when we disagree...
