"Here we are. Three Bud Lights," Cheryl said to the three young men while she slid the bottles over, and they dug for their wallets. Her mental victory dance at not losing her temper when asked for three "beers" kept her so distracted, she forgot to be annoyed that they didn't have their money ready. "Midweek celebration, huh? Anything special?"

A few chuckles at this as they take the beer and then a swig. Hey with all this bullshit, worked doubles all weekend, boss gave us the day off tomorrow after cleanup... can't complain really and the bars are less crowded, more sexy waitress attention for us.

After doing so well at ignoring the "beer" order, she was not about to start in on the difference between bartenders and waitresses. Cheryl relaxed and grinned. "Always good to know we're so appreciated. Unfortunately, I've still got a few other places to turn my attention tonight, but I promise to make up for it when I get back."

She turned to take another customer's order and looked around the bar. There wasn't too high a chance that Ramus would come to Mist of all places, even if he was in town and okay, but she looked anyway.

Oh, but in truth he always did seem to pop up at the times that made no sense, and never when it did. A few more orders, a few more people in and out and then that familiar tingle on the back of your neck, you seem to be getting more sensitive to other Kindred in your presence. Ramus and someone else have just entered, and with a wave he acknowledges you before moving over to the side, a tucked away booth.

She smiled back, not even intending it as a form of acknowledgement for his wave but just because of the relief she felt on seeing that he was okay. The two of them weren't close, but did he have any friends in the city who would check up on him if he'd been hurt? For a social butterfly, Ramus kept his personal affairs very private. Maybe his companion was a friend, or just another date. After serving up the drink she was working on, Cheryl took a look at the person who came in with him.

You can't see much of anything, somehow he always manages to keep himself covered, or something, shrouded, concealed. You see them, you know that, but whoever he is with just seems to be back enough out of the direct light, wrong angle, wrong everything.

She couldn't decide what was more suspicious, that Ramus was meeting this shady fellow or that he chose to do it in what he had already acknowledged as her territory - while she was there, no less. Did he want her to spy in on the meeting, or did she just radiate safety and non-involvement? Without much pleasure, she decided that the latter was more likely.

Well, she'd show him. If this was her territory, then she could watch whoever she wanted to inside of it. Discreetly. Cheryl took a few orders that moved her further up the bar, where she might have a better angle to see this mystery person and get a feel for whether this visit was business or pleasure.

Ramus seems relaxed, leaning forward but casually resting his chin on one hand, the other is leaning back, perhaps a bit standoffish, not wanting to be in as close of a space together, personal space, ah you can understand that. You cant help but wonder in a way if Ramus is teasing you, testing you, challenging you to spy or do something, but then he is the prankster or so they call the clan, he could be doing all of the above or none of it.

This was getting her nowhere, but Cheryl couldn't get rid of her suspicions that this wasn't just an ordinary business meeting. The last time she'd seen him, the Ravnos had mentioned leaving town with all the tension building around the city. Now, after the most action to happen thus far, he just strolled around like everything was normal? Cheryl doubted it. Even with doubts, however, there was nothing in particular to hint that this mysterious person wasn't just a Kine, and that Ramus hadn't chosen this club just because...well, for whatever reason he usually came to Mist.

She grabbed some Coronas for a waitress who came up to the bar and leaned in as she placed the bottles on the tray. "Hey, I don't think those two over there have been served yet. You mind making the round that way after you drop these off?" she asked, nodding to Ramus and his companion.

Mmm yeah, I didn't see them when they came in, damn, thanks for catching that. She gives you a grateful smile at pointing out a customer she somehow had missed, and a few minutes later makes her way over, is there a few moments before making her way back toward the kitchen.

It was only after Cheryl had sent the woman off that she felt some anxiety over whether she'd sent one of her coworkers into a little chimerstry trap, or whatever Ramus did to mesmerize the Kine who looked his way. Cheryl watched the waitress to see what she was going to retrieve for the gentlemen.

She comes back out with a basket of wings, pauses a moment and approaches you. Damn I must be slipping, a Heineken and a Port please, I'll be right back...

Cheryl got the drinks quickly, trying not to imagine that the waitress's lack of focus was because of some hypnotized suggestion she was acting out. She went about mixing and pouring a few more drinks after that, flirting and taking payment, but always keeping an eye on Ramus and the stranger and waiting for the waitress for get back like she said.

She returns a moment later, a smile before running off to deliver the drinks then back again. I must be slipping, thanks for not lecturing me on forgetting their drink order... Ramus is still there, and you think he has looked up once or twice at you.

She smiled sympathetically at the waitress. "It happens sometimes, even on slow nights. Don't worry about it. Especially with that customer - pretty laid back and a huge flirt. As long as he can toss a line at you, I'm sure he wouldn't have minded." Cheryl grinned and picked up some empty glasses from the bar.

She giggles and glances back at the table then nods in agreement before heading off to check other tables. A flicker of light catches your attention, a coin spinning over his fingers, and this time he is looking directly at you, winking once you make eye contact.

Cheryl raised a brow at the wink. He didn't have the coin out before, but she remembered the trails of light that followed it when he flipped it into the air, and she assumed that looking at the shiny had something to do with Ramus' hypnosis tricks. What she wanted to know was what it had to do with her waitress, or the faceless man, or her for that matter, but it wasn't as though she could go over and ask him. Until he was willing to give more than just vague hints that something was up, there was nothing for her to do but clean the bar and refill drinks.

Half an hour, only half an hour but it seemed like much longer before there is a motion that catches your eye again, a wave of his hand and well you know it is for you. The drinks have been drained, food half eaten by one of them at least and it is almost like a little bubble around them, people seem to be giving them more space without realizing it.

Cheryl sighed and finished up pouring a couple orders before saying that she was going on break. Once she was given the okay, she stepped out from the behind the bar and went to Ramus' table, stopping a good foot or so away. Beyond going near someone unknown, the fact that everyone was giving the two a wide berth made her nervous, even if he might have been a Kine from the sight of the meal. "Good evening, Ramus, and...?"

Mbeki... The person opposite Ramus is a very dark skinned man, his teeth glittering white as he looks up at you and smiles. Horribly sorry to crash on you again Cheryl my dear, but you know how things are and I am not exactly welcome in every establishment. Ramus gives you a bit of a toothy grin and chuckles. Besides, I thought you might like... to make acquaintance. Mbeki has remained silent after giving you his name, watching you with an odd interest, or perhaps shyness, or well, something as Ramus speaks.

"Nice to meet you." She nodded to Mbeki and lost a little of her tension. At least he wasn't hostile or standoffish. Both of her eyebrows went up at Ramus' words, and her eyes slid back to Mbeki before glancing around the club. She gestured at the booth, silently asking if she could sit down; it would look odd for a bartender to just stand in front of a table like this.

"As long as you play nice, I don't mind. You know that." She addressed Ramus first and then turned her attention back to Mbeki. He might have been a Kine, but his association with Ramus and interest in her suggested her wasn't unaware of what they were. Otherwise, she had nothing of any particular interest for strangers. "Well, welcome to Mist. What can I do for you?"

Nice is my middle name. He laughs again as he moves to make room for you. Mbeki is silent a moment at your question, a slight tilt of his head, before he responds, his voice soft and heavily accented. I believe Mr Ramus, he has thought to play a trick, he mentioned a friend works here, and such this might be a comfortable place to meet compared to other places. I hope we are not inconvenient?
