I would be really grateful if you could look, maybe we're in luck for a change.

When Laurent takes her hand her eyes immediately look at their hands and can't help but blink a few times in surprise.

...Thank you. I look forward to doing business with you again some time. I do hope you keep in touch.

She looks much more unsure of herself with her hand in his. She waits for him to let go of her hand because she isn't really sure what to do.

He lets go and sits again, going back to his papers.
(Laurent) Do not worry, you will hear from me again soon.

Carrion smiles slightly and nods her head.

Good night.

She leaves his office ensuring she silently closes his office door. She takes a moment to check her phone looking at both texts and emails before sending Pierre a text message.

Pierre:
 


When she's finished with her phone she hides it away and checks her Obfuscate is still correct before making her way back down into the club and out towards the front door looking for Kevin. When she finds him she approaches and clears her throat to get his attention.

Excuse me, are you Kevin?

The bouncer, a strong based man of Maghrebine origins without any hair nods.
(Kevin) Yeah that's me. Want a stamp to get in again after a smoke ?

He pulls out a rubber stamp to mark the hand, the club's logo. He waits for the hand to be stamped, of course, he doesn't think it would be for a discussion.

She smiles at him and offers him her hand to get a stamp. She bites her bottom lip for a moment before speaking.

Actually, I was hoping I could talk to you about the man that was asking you questions about the missing women a while back...

Was there anything in particular you remember about him?

Are you sure he was alone?

Did he mention where he was heading next?

She takes a step closer to make sure she isn't in anyone's way.

The man seems thoughtful a moment, he turns to a blonde pinup that wants her stamp, then turns back to Carrion.
(Kevin) He acted like he was alone. I remember he smelled like wine, but I'm pretty sure he wasn't drunk. His clothing was too clean for him to have slept in the streets. He told he was going to stalk the journalists from Sud-Ouest, saying they were doing a crappy job about it.

Sud Ouest is the main regional newspapers. It means "southwest".

When the blonde walks past after getting her hand stamped Carrion's nose wrinkles after getting a lung full of particularly strong perfume. She says nothing until Kevin is free once more.

The newspaper huh?

Did he say anything about the man he was looking into bar giving you a description?

The bouncer shrugs.
(Kevin) I remember, yes, he asked me a little about this one guy with uncontrollable gestures (he spends his time tying up his laces and buttoning his sleeves). Nothing special, comes in alone, leaves with a girl, a couple of times each month or so. Maybe they're friends or so, he knew his name. Lionel I think.

He seems thoughtful an instant.
(Kevin) I am not sure. I see many people. Can't remember all the names.

Carrion waits patiently for him to answer her question; rests her back against the wall as she waits. When Kevin's answered her question she nods her head in understanding. Mulling something over in her head she taps her clutch bag against her leg rhythmically to the beat of the bass in the music that's playing.

Has he been around recently? and if so did he leave with any arm candy?

Thoughtful, Kevin works his few neurons out to try and remember.
(Kevin).. Maybe two weeks ago or so ? I can't tell. You gotta ask many questions ? I've got work.

He's quite polite about it but it wasn't really a question. He shrugs and goes back to work and stamps Mike out as he steps out. Mike looks around, as if he was looking for someone, and sees Carrion. He approaches, quite friendly and open. He's noticed she wasn't in for a drink, and that she had stepped in to speak with Laurent. He smiles at her, trying to gauge and know if she's one of them, if she's in-the-know.. But he does approach her.

She nods her head in understanding.

Thank you for helping me out so much.

She gives his arm a friendly squeeze in thanks and smiles at him before he turns away to get back to work. Carrion spots Mike as he walks out but she was still talking with Kevin at the time so her attention was divided until Kevin tells her to bugger off.

When she's excused herself from Kevin she smiles back at Mike and closes the space between them. She stands pretty close to Mike to give make sure the music doesn't appear to imped their conversation.


Mike, I was hoping I'd run into you. How are you tonight?

The Brujah seems a little surprised to hear his own name. He observes a little more closely the woman he sees and moves aside, so they'd be out of hear reach from people going in and out of the club. He takes out a pack of cigarillos and offers one before lighting one for himself (smoking is a good excuse to be outside of the club). Up close he looks quite human, his skin seems warmer. Obviously, he has taken precautions to go out and not be a risk to the Masquerade.
(Mike) I.. We've met ? Sorry I'm a little high, my memory isn't good.

Perhaps he believes she was one of his preys some time ago ?

Carrion makes sure her hand has been stamped before she moves away with Mike. When he's settled into an out of the way spot. When offered a cigarillo she pulls one from the pack and hands it back to him before pulling a lighter out of the clutch bag. Tucking the clutch under her arm she cups her left hand to make sure the wind doesn't blow out the flame and lights up.

She listens to him speak and exhales a plume of smoke before speaking. She seems to be examining him quite closely at the moment without being too intrusive whilst smoking her cigarillo.


It's Carrion. You met me last night, remember?

She waves her left hand in front of his face showing him the area where her thumb should be.

The Brujah nods and lets out a slight "ah !" when he puts back together the pieces.
(Mike) It's true ! Sorry I didn't recognize you, you know, because of..

He gestures, meaning probably the obfuscate, but also the surroundings. He does so being very careful with his own cigarillo, as not to cause fear in his conversational partner. He then takes a smoke and blows out with a appreciative smile.
(Mike) I'm OK. Why you'd hope to see me ?

He's not suspicious anymore, but speaks more openly.

Yeah, I get that a lot. I'll take it as a compliment.

Carrion can't hide the grin off her face for very long. She seems to be looking at his skin and completion. As she observes she swaps the cigarillo to her left hand so no stray hot ash blows on him.

I have to say you're looking pretty spry yourself this evening.

She pauses for a moment to think on how to phrase her question.

Remember me and Duncan said we'd look into those missing people? I was wondering if you asked anyone else to look into them?

The Brujah can't help a laugh, he then smiles a little and nods shyly.
(Mike) That's because I just fed... The drunk excuse always work, I mean, I can't possibly remember everyone !

He betrays he's sober saying that. He glances around, careful about not being heard.
(Mike) I do remember. No, I only told Theo about it, but he had lots of stuff to do and well, mortals gone missing happens every other week so he thinks it's just normal. That and if it's indeed of kindred origin, especially if it's one of us, they don't really like meddling neonates in their stuff right... But no I didn't tell anyone else. That doesn't mean others don't suspect, I mean, it's getting seriously on the news and people are getting worried about it.

He shakes his head sadly, denying a thought.
(Mike) I find this situation quite stressful. It worries me, to see how much shit is happening in our precious city lately... I don't like it.

Carrion smiles with Mike, her right hand twitches at her side. As though she wanted to do something but stops herself for a moment before speaking.

I know this is weird but can I? She gestures to his face asking silent permission to touch him.

When Mike goes on to answer her question she listens silently and continues to smoke. Just as he finishes she inhales a lungful and exhales watching the plume of smoke as it dissipates nodding her head to show she was listening to what he was saying. When he confesses he doesn't like what is happening an expression of sad understanding crosses her face.

I know it's not nice but try not to worry too much. It's not good for your health.

She smiles again and bumps hips with him obviously trying to cheer him up a bit before replying to what he was talking about.

Yeah, Theo sounds like quite a busy guy. I'm still not sure whom is to blame for it all, I pick up tidbits here and there. Like I went to talk about other business and someone called Louisa Elsdorf, cropped up. Apparently she was one of the first to go missing. Don't suppose you know much about it do you?

The Brujah takes a puff of his cigarillo while Carrion speaks, and blows to the side softly, even if he doesn't have the nicotine feel, he still enjoys the gesture for what it was back when he was alive. He takes the cigarillo between his his thumb and his index and takes it aside to tap the ash away. He looks intrigued by her inquiry. He nods in agreement.
(Mike) Can.. ? Well sure whatever. Why ?

He makes sure his cigarillo isn't on the way and wouldn't trigger a frenzy and observes without blinking whatever the Nosferatu wants to do with him. He doesn't act against it, even if he asked why, he agreed to it before so.
He chuckles when she speaks about his health.

(Mike) My health, to live longer right ? .. Louisa ? Yeah I remember that name, I think she had missing signs all over the town, but nothing was found. If she wasn't the first, at least she was put into the media and there was a march and all that stuff. Other than that, I really don't remember much.

Thoughtful he browses in his memory, half frowning, he then opens slightly the mouth with a "ah!" characteristic of someone remembering something.
(Mike) I recall she wasn't from Bordeaux, since her parents were from La Rochelle or whatever other town in another region, because what was left or her family organized a mass for her well-being the anniversary of her disappearance in her "hometown church".

He thinks about it a moment, then he nods.
(Mike) Should go through the archives of the newspapers, maybe you'll dig up about her family or other information that may be of some use.

Obviously Mike had not thought about how internet or how the archives may have been put into computers already.

PostSubject: Re: The Fabrick   Thu Sep 13, 2012 5:12 pm

It's going to sound really silly...

She looks a little sheepish now but still carries on with the explanation before even considering touching him. Maybe she feels like she at least owes him an explanation before she does it.

My skin is...different?

She's obviously unsure of her wording but she picks up where she left off.

Anyway I've never felt normal Kindred skin, I just wanted to touch it. I know it's a bit weird.

The cigarillo remains far enough away to not bother Mike in between her index finger and middle finger of her left hand. Her right hand tentatively touch the skin on his cheek and his jaw. Her touch feels much colder in comparison to Mike's skin. The contact lasts for maybe a minute or two she pauses as if committing the sensation to memory before she withdraws her hand back to her side.

When he goes on to answer her question she listens attentively. Her left hand coming up to her face to smoke some more, nodding her head every so often as she listens. When he mentions the church she can't help but flinch her eyes close for a moment before she's back to normal again.


Yeah, that was my next plan of action really.

Theo has his fingers in the media doesn't he? If it's drawing a lot of attention how come he hasn't worked a bit of magic to quieten things down a bit?

The Brujah stays passive, but observant as the Nosferatu touches him. He smiles slightly to her reasons. His skin is a bit warm, not as warm as it could be, but it betrays he has used blood to appear more human. It's not particularly soft nor well taken care of, but it has that texture kindred skin usually has ; it's dry and a little bit rubberish (goes with having no blood system to sustain the skin, it becomes a dead organ, but it's preserved).
(Mike) It's fine. Got what you were looking for ?

He steps back to take a drag of his cigarillo, with a satisfied smile, then nods and agrees. He still keeps an eye out not to be heard by other ears.
(Mike) Theo has his fingers in the newspapers yeah, and what worries me is that he probably has already. I can't even imagine how big the problem is without Theo's censor. Yeah yeah I know we gotta hunt'n'stuff but I've been with mortals for a few decades now and even if it has always happened, these guys gotta be more careful now. Medias are fucking everywhere, god...

It seems it's a little hard for him to understand exactly why or how, but he clearly understands the differences between now and before.
(Mike) It's not drawing as much attention as it could, but I'd rather tackle now the problem before we get some unwanted attention. As long as only 'we' notice it, it's fine, but we'd rather warn whoever is behind it all.

A small smile tugs at Carrion's lips.

Yes, thank you for not getting to weirded out by me.

Her eyes wander around wanting to make sure no one gets too close but she is paying full attention to Mike even if it may not seem that way due to the lack of eye contact.

Perception + Empathy >4:
 

When she seems happy with the environment she turns back to look at Mike again her phone goes off whilst he speaks but she ignores it for the moment.


Yes, I see your point. I don't really like asking him how much he has dabbled to quieten things down, after all it is his thing. I feel like I'd be intruding you know?

She nods her head when he talks about how they needed to be more careful. She pops the cigarillo between her lips adjusting it to rest in the corner of her lips, pulling her phone out of her clutch with her free hand and speak at the same time. A skill she's probably carried through from her mortal life as the cigarillo doesn't fall away her lips just seem to move less but she is able to articulate herself with no difficulty just maybe slightly quieter than a moment ago.

I'm sorry Mike, completely forgot to put it on vibrate.

She starts to type a quick text as she speaks the cigarillo remaining in its resting spot:

I agree, why hang around until it becomes a problem?

When she's done with the text the phone vanishes smoothly back into the clutch bag and she takes another lungful watching the smoke thoughtfully for a second before carrying on with what she was saying.

Better to nip it in the bud now, before they start panicking, people get stupid when they panic.

The Brujah gives a curious look to the whole behavior the Nosferatu showed him, but he doesn't think about it too much and shrugs it off. Whatever.
(Mike) Yeah and Theo's quite territorial too, you know, Brujah turf and all that.

He winks, it applies to him and to all kindred too, somehow, but he plays on Theodore's image and jokes about it.
(Mike) Don't tell him that though he'll kick my ass.

He makes a "what you gonna do?" movement about the phone going on when his partner gets a message, at least when Carrion takes out her phone, because he had not linked the sound to it when it went off. It happens and he doesn't care about it.
(Mike) No worries.

He lets her do her thing and takes back the subject at hand.
(Mike) People are already stupid, can they be stupid-er ? Well yeah. Ah, but didn't Laure Nolveaux embrace a journalist a week weeks or months ago ? I know she presented her on Wednesday, you know? Maybe you should talk to her. I woudn't be surprised if the Toreador were keeping an eye on mortals as well, especially Oopsies like that.

Mike's joke makes her smile and laugh a little.

Your secret is safe with me.

She returns his wink. She listens silently once more when he speaks. When he's finished her phone goes off again, this time she says nothing but repeats her actions like the last time her phone went off. She types and speaks to Mike at the same time.

...Yeah, I think they can be when they're scared.

Hmm, Lauren Perrot wasn't it? Do you know much about her? All I know is she was a journalist at the local paper before she got embraced.
