A residential, poorer area, the Europe Plaza neighborhood has several low income flats. It's crowded, mixed in population, and the architecture is far more modern than downtown Bordeaux. Europe Plaza itself is known to Bordeaux's people because it has the social security center, the CPAM (which is where one should go to make sure they'll be correctly refunded of their health expenses, as well as what pays maternity leave, sick leave, and work accident compensations...). It also has a cheap supermarket, and one of the most important post offices in town.

Saturday night, 4:15 AM

When Nyx, William, Duncan and Fred arrived the building next to Europe Plaza, where Nyx says Momo’s phone was triangulated, the group noticed in the parking an old dark sedan which is being shut off by the Sheriff. He stepped out of his car in haste, and took a woman out of the car which he put on his shoulder ; probably a knocked out (or dead?) prey for the night. Fred raced to him before he entered the building, asking him about Regent's whereabouts. Nyx, Duncan and William stayed back, from fear of the Sheriff's reaction ; they weren't prepared for such approach, and it's clear they didn't think that they'd cross Lambert's path.
Lambert, surprised to see Fred, just told him he had no idea, Kersten be Kersten and does whatever he wants. He told him that he sometimes had not seen him during several months, if not years, and that anyway, his job is only to worry about kindred entering, not about kindred leaving.

He shooed off Fred and quickly stepped into the building.

Now the coterie is deciding what to do next.

From their vantage point down the block, Duncan, William and Nyx watch Fred get on his bicycle after speaking with Lambert, and pedal off down the street.  Nyx and William try to catch Fred's attention as he rolls past, but they are unsuccessful.  Duncan shakes his head, and chuckles.

Well, either he'll come back, or he won't.  I wonder if Fred's attention span stretched to the breaking point; or if the Sheriff told him to leave, and backed it up with a little persuasion.

Either way, I find it an odd coincidence that we come to the place where Nyx's clanmate disappeared, while investigating missing humans, and Lambert is here with a young woman who looks like she's about to become a missing person.  It's not like we can search the whole building, especially with Lambert in there.  Duncan looks at William, and adds:  Unless you have a spell-- excuse me, ritual -- that can see through walls?

Nyx watched as Fred sped away, her expression didn't give away her thoughts on the matter. Shifting slightly she parked the scooter and waited for William to get off before doing so herself. She also did not comment on Duncan's thoughts on Fred. When he mentions Lambert she does speak, cutting across what Duncan was about to say to William.

...I was hoping to avoid this, but Momo was poking around the Provost, I found out when I visited Fabrik and spoke to Laurent. I didn't want to jump to conclusions, but I guess it's one rock two birds now.

Out of habit she massaged her temples, almost as though she was nursing a headache and shrugged her shoulders. With a sigh the Nosferatu extracted her tobacco tin and pulled out a hand rolled cigarette and lighter. Without hesitation she lit it and inhaled deeply, this action also seemed quite habitual. The tin vanished back into one of her pockets when the cigarette was lit.

William stares at Fred as he rounded around the corner. "Malkavians, they are so interesting and unpredictable, don't you agree?"


William raises an eyebrow at Duncan's comment as he waved away some of the smoke the wind pushed in his direction. "I really don't see why Claudia had to get into specifics about our expertise, ho well. But no, I specialize in summoning guardian spirits and communication rituals. And if I get my wish some day, fire. But anything related to moving through walls and seeing through them are beyond my comprehension for now. However..." William leans in on Nyx with a grin, "...we do have a perfectly fine Nossy here whom can mind bend her way into the building."

Nyx allowed William to lean on her, there was only about four inches between them in height difference. The Nosferatu seemed quite content to just continue with her cigarette as she listened to him speak, William could feel her laughing silently as she shook slightly against him.

Firstly,

She flicked the ash on the pavement before continuing to speak; Duncan and William could see her eyeing the building up and down in the pause she took.

It would take me weeks to pick every lock in that place, and that's not working twenty four hours a day and not factoring in getting caught of course. Secondly, he'd know what I am as soon as he laid eyes on me, that ain't going to work I can tell you that now. We'd be better off doing what Fred did to be honest and see if he lies to us or try and make us disappear as well.

Nyx's head turned slightly looking at William who was still leaning on her. She grinned as she spoke in an amused tone.

I should start charging you for that.

"Aww, but you keep telling my brain you're all soft and squishy, I should charge you for allowing this misdirection to continue." William said after a short laugh.

After a moment, he piped up again, "I could blow a giant hole in the building, but I doubt that would be productive... But if we need to find that Bobo guy, we really should check. Any idea's?"

But you know I'm not, therefore it isn't misdirection besides you probably wouldn't want to be this close without my face on.

Nyx replied with amusement and finished smoking her cigarette quickly, she discarded it before it burned too far down.

"I'm Tremere, trust me when I tell you I've seen things where a Nosferatu is nothing compared to it." The neonate added as he corrected his glasses after sitting up straight once more. "Boils, bah, discolorations, heh, weird growths, ppft," William moved his hands around in a 'hopeless' gesture, "amateurs..."

"The only thing that truly repels me are my paren-." William halts and coughs, "Anyhooooo..."
He points to the building. "Suggestions?"

Duncan lowers the kickstand on the motorcycle, and straps the helmet behind the seat as William and Nyx dismount the scooter.  The Brujah listens to the banter between the other two Kindred, but when he replies it's to comment on what Nyx said a minute ago.

It would've been nice to know that the Sheriff was a suspect.  This is probably his haven, isn't it?  That's going to make it even harder to check the place out.

I doubt it's a good idea to poke around while he's here, anyway.  No telling what kind of security he has.  If he's like most of these old guys, it's probably not high-tech, but a few of the residents ghouled out and acting as guards would be a problem too.

Duncan looks at William, and back to Nyx.  'Mind-bending', huh?  So that's how it works.  I agree that a full search is impractical, especially in the time we have tonight.  A quick look around might be a good idea, though.  For example, the elevator... Whst floor did it stop on?  If you hold the door open and try all the buttons, are there some floors that don't seem to light up?  Is the basement blocked off?  That sort of thing.  Are you up for that?  Or should we wait, and try to convince Fred to do it?  He may have that ability, although not all Malkavians do.

Nyx smiled at William, his words piqued her interest.

Ahhh, so you have mummy and daddy issues.

The Nosferatu couldn't help but poke the Tremere she said nothing else turning her attention to Duncan now that he had spoken.

I didn't know for certain, Momo didn't leave much of a trail to follow, and I wasn't about to outright accuse the Prevost with no evidence to back me up.

Hmm, think of it like a mental Photoshop, you see what I want you to because I manipulate the image. I think if we do go in one of us should wait outside, if we don't come back out or don't call at least one of us will know what's happened. Maybe then the Brood won't send some other poor sod looking into this mess.

When Nyx explains why she didn't want to accuse the Sheriff without proof, Duncan nods grudgingly.  But when she mentions someone going in with her, he isn't too fond of the idea.

I guess I can go in with you, but if we see any cameras or guards, that's where I stop.  I missed 'ninja training day' in school.  If anyone sees me, a little charm should convince them I'm harmless.  I'll just act a little drunk, and say I can't remember my girlfriend's apartment number.

Duncan adds, in a soft mutter:  Shouldn't be hard to do.  I've still got a buzz from that guy earlier.

"Somehow I don't enjoy the prospect of bringing the new of 2 disappearances to 2 different primogen. So ehh... be very careful? Also, if you get blocked by ghouls and they're aggressive, remember the bracelet. If what Tarcisus says is true, along with what we saw in the theater, all ghouls should be affected." William said after considering alternatives but coming up with none.

Nyx shifted herself out from under William as Duncan spoke.

Hopefully there won't be any cameras, if there are too many I won't be able to go too far either.

She nodded her head in understanding to William's concerns, the two men can see her hand went around her wrist when he mentions the bracelet.

...Needs must I guess, I don't particularly like the idea of hurting them.

The Nosferatu waits for Duncan and then begins to walk towards the entrance. She seems to be inspecting the entranceway way as she approaches, looking for any cameras and looking to see if the doorway is locked or not.

If there are none she stepped closer and tried the door to see if it was unlocked.

Nyx is quick to notice that the main entrance of the building is a badge entrance (a small RFID key chain, it's also needed to enter the parking of the "residence", nothing anyone with the right material couldn't forge) ; for better security to avoid drug deals in the hall, most low income buildings have those. Most dealers living in those buildings have the badge anyway....
Bribing an inhabitant and enter with them couldn't be too hard.. but not at 4:30 AM.

As soon as Nyx spotted the cameras she came to a halt, her gaze had quickly spotted the key card mechanism but knew she could not get through that way. Slowly she began to circle the building until she found what she was looking for. When she came to a stop she couldn't help but smile and mutter:

Shiny.

The Nosferatu hadn't noticed if Duncan had been following her, she had been to preoccupied looking for a way in, and keeping out of sight of the active cameras to notice. Nyx turned to see if he had followed her.

This looks like a way in.

She pointed to the exit where the rubbish was taken out, wondering if he saw what she did.

Duncan follows Nyx as she skirts around the field of vision covered by the security cameras.  He stops when she does, although when she points to the door he doesn't look as pleased as she does.

Okay, I guess if you can't pick it, I can break the lock.  But what about the camera?

Nyx nodded her head at his suggestion.

I can try and pick it, the camera is broken so nothing can see us here. Failing that you could press one of the buttons up front and let me in this way, well that's if anyone answers.  

The Nosferatu didn't waste much more time, she went up to the door and inspected the lock on the door carefully.

When Nyx tells him the camera is broken, Duncan takes another look, and nods.  As the Nosferatu approaches the door and examines the lock, he follows her and keeps an eye out for anyone else.

William places himself against the wall of a building nearby, so he's not really in the field of vision but can keep a clear on the actual building itself, as he wait's for trouble to happen, if there is any. He takes a few pictures of the building just in case and puts away his cellphone. He takes off his glasses and cleans them, as he focuses his abilities on hearing.

Nyx crouched down to inspect the lock, from her inner pocket she produced a case she knew full well the door would not just open from the side they were on. She pulled out from one of the pouches of the case a thick plastic card much like a large credit card and rested the edge into the grooves, and twisted it whilst pushing the door.

With little resistance the door opened, she picked up her case with her occupied hand and stood using her free hand then boot to hold the door ajar. The Nosferatu didn't wait to see what Duncan was up to, instead she immediately moved inside, holding the door open for him to follow.

Nodding approvingly ay her handiwork, Duncan watches Nyx open the side door into the Sheriff's building.  As he follows her inside, his rubber-soled shoes make very little noise.  Just inside the door, Duncan whispers to Nyx:

So-- where do we look first?  The elevator?  We might see what floor Lambert is on.  Some office buildings have the elevators return to the ground floor, but I'm guessing a residential building won't do that.  Unless he took the stairs, of course; but why do that if he was carrying someone?

Once Duncan is inside she carefully closes the door, making sure that it made no noise. She whispered back to him:

Worth a shot we may get lucky.

Nyx stepped forward, keeping her eyes open and alert for any internal security cameras or the presence of anyone still around the immediate direction they were forced to travel. The Nosferatu was quiet as well.

It is indeed a room where dumps are kept in between being taken by the city. They're soon to notice that there is a garbage disposal system from the apartments as the grey dump and the green dump are open to some sort of chimneys. The green is for recyclables such as paper, tins, cans, cardboard.. As the grey is for everything else. Kindred may remember that outside there is a dump for glass, it's not movable, and only has an entrance for bottle sided objects.
There is a small door leading to inside the building. It's not locked, as people may need to throw stuff away that do not fit into the tube for disposing smaller trash bags.

Indeed there is an elevator, but it doesn't say which floor it's on.
