There is a long pause, perhaps he notices the changes in you, or he was not suspecting that. You couldn't have wanted me to babysit you Cheryl, you are way too... strong for that. Dead, no, I always knew you would be alright, didn't it work, we had jobs, we did well, I understand you needed space a while, but its been a long while now.

Soft voices at the entry way to the alley, Ramus, you know that laugh even at the distance, Ramus and Mbeki to meet you as planned...

"Strong?" The word came out in half a disbelieving laugh. "Wow, thank you for the confidence, Jonathon, but there's a difference between being able to adapt well and being able to hold off Sabbat who don't like holding up their ends of a deal. Or even knowing how to talk to other Kindred about anything other than formal business arrangements-"

At the sound of laughter, she looked at the mouth of the alley. Her train of thought lost, she hesitated. This was poor timing all around. "I promised to meet some people after work..." If Ramus and Mbeki weren't involved, then how would Jonathon react to a Ravnos and a Kine picking her up? Would he want to stick around long enough for her to have to introduce all of them? She'd told Ramus that she thought her Sire might like to get rid of her...

A wrinkle of his lips, furrow of his brow but then it fades, the ever calm Jonathon watching you before glancing down the alley. Friends hmm, can always chit chat with them later can't we, I would think we have a lot to catch up on? He is watching those approaching though, you can see it, alert, wary, also a familiar movement, how strange, so familiar and yet so distant too. You've done just fine really, and my dear, its not like there is a book of etiquette among our kind, really, what did you want?

If Mbeki wanted stories, then Cheryl imagined Jonathon would have tons of them, being much more well-traveled than her and with more experience. Somehow in this moment, though, she was very much against letting the scholar deal with her Sire.

"What I wanted?" She shook her head, the fire gone from her once more. These mood swings were far from the demeanor she'd wanted to have at the end of work. You've done just fine really. Cheryl became aware of how the scar running from her side to her lower back stretched, the one that was mangled from missing flesh. She could almost feel a dull ache. "You were the one who brought me into this life. What I wanted was to learn how to make something out of it. I thought you would teach me that."

She looked at Ramus and Mbeki approaching as well, unable to hide her - well, her less than exuberant state. "I..." but she didn't know what else to say to Jonathon, whether to agree to go with him or not, and how to say anything without the other two overhearing. This would be even less fun than when they came into the club.

So since it isn't roses, it is my fault then? Would you rather be dead? His voice drops slightly as if he too doesn't want others to overhear, and then that voice, Ramus, you suspect he knows a lot more then he is letting on, he had warned you himself. Cherry love, sorry to be late, hope I didn't keep you, ah... sorry, are we interrupting? Mbeki, again slightly out of focus, you know he is there, and this time he has stepped back, a little distance between him and the rest of you as Ramus makes his grand entrance, flamboyant, ridiculous, completely in clan to every stereotype, colours, ribbons, gold and an odd glint in his eye.

Friends hmm? Jonathon arches a brow and looks at you, a harsh look, a piercing look with that level of emotion that is just more then a slight bit unsettling.

And just like that, the fire came back. She wanted to tell him that she would be dead anyway, if she kept running the errands that he sent her on, never preparing her, leaving her treading water without being able to swim. There was just no time, because then Ramus was there with all the subtlety of a tornado. She kept her eyes fixed on some low point on the alley wall, feeling now genuine guilt for yet another awkward encounter with Mbeki, because for all her uncertainty about him, she'd wanted to be able to make a better second impression. Now, especially, she was even looking forward to their talk. It had to be better than going with Jonathon.

Only when her gaze rose to Ramus did she remember - he'd said he met her Sire. Jonathon's glare, unnerving at first, just became confusing at that point. Why was he giving her that look? If anything, he should be glaring at the Ravnos who lied when he said that he didn't know where someone named Cheryl might be. With rebellious daring, she looked right back at her Sire. "Yes."

I see. Two words, yes, it seems that Jonathon at the moment, is more annoyed at Ramus then you, and yet isn't doing a thing about it save a lingering stare at you before shifting to the other, a slight curl of his lip as the two men stare each other down a moment before Ramus pulls out his coin, flipping it in the air. I have a date with Cherry here, I am sure you can manage to wiggle some time later with her, I mean, I know she is a popular little puppy and all, but first come, first serve. Nice seeing you again though Jonathon, a pleasure really, we should do business again sometime. And with that he is somehow beside you, his arm linked in yours and turns about face, back to the Gangrel and begins to walk, Mbeki stepping to the side to follow. Later then Cheryl. Three more words, a promise there, and annoyance in his voice, at you, or at Ramus, or both, you can't be sure

Ramus could be such an ass, and Cheryl couldn't be more grateful just then. It was a relief to have the difficulty of explaining herself to either side taken out of her hands, almost literally as the Ravnos physically steered her away. The way Jonathon emphasized her name, like he was annoyed at the nickname that she herself had disliked at first, made her lips twitch up with wry amusement. "Later," she called back without turning.

Once they were out of the alley, she raised her ducked head to look ahead. After another quiet moment, she looked sideways at Ramus. "First of all, thank you. Second of all...did you set that up?"

(For some reason the site is not giving me a real text box and having loading issues, it may be the work computer, if not, I will find out what is up when I am home and fix the site if possible, let me know if you are having issues)

Ramus has a half smile at the start as you thank him followed by what can only be described as a hurt look at the accusation as Mbeki appears at your side, suddenly in focus again. "Did I know he was coming at some point, yes Cheryl, did I know tonight, no..." Hurt, that was clearly hurt, the brat and trickster who had just possibly pissed off a Gangrel who already 'hates' his 'kind' is clearly hurt by the accusation. "We should walk more..." Mbeki's voice is soft as he glances back at the alley.

Spoiler:
 

Cheryl had no idea how Ramus thought of her, and he'd never tried to hide his flamboyance and trickery, but that expression looked so damn sincere on him. Whether it actually was or not, she found herself trying to backtrack, only to stop when Mbeki commented on their distance from the alleyway. Was Jonathon still trying to listen in?

Either way, she waited a few moments longer until they got a little further away before talking, not letting go of Ramus' arm as long as he didn't pull it away. This time her voice was gentler. "I'm sorry. It's just the...the timing of it all. He said that he came because he heard about the fire, but it's already been days. I've been thinking that if he was going to show up because of that, he'd have gotten here earlier. And then, how he decided to ambush me in the alley like that, and right after you guys were in the club...I couldn't think of why you would do something so convoluted. I just thought I'd ask. Sorry..."

(I cant read your spoiler either, but since you could use colour, I assume your's is working >< damn it I wish I knew what was being so messed up, using bb codes long hand then)


He walks with you in silent, Mbeki the dark shadow who seems to be even quieter then you both. A pause as you speak again, his eyes wandering off to the distance before looking back at you. I suppose I see the issue, even if I did... lie for you before... He is still a bit hurt, but mollified, some of that horribly boyish dismay melting away from his eyes. Well... tea then?

((I just said "Let's see if the spoiler box works." It showed up for me once I posted :/ ))

Cheryl gave a small smile. "You did. And then you even told me the truth about lying for me. Thank you for that." This sweet, possibly even sincere side of him was a huge switch from the ever-confident, flirtatious personality he'd always shown so far. She couldn't decide yet whether she thought it was real or not, but it was nice all the same. "Sure. Tea would be great right about now."

((Then is your box all messed up too and/or having loading issues? I have found that when I click on something, if I hit the stop loading button, it comes up much faster. I suspect there may be a forummotion issue))


Good, good then. Mbeki speaks up, his voice brightening as he nods his head, and a walk, twenty minutes or so, brings you to a small side street, a mix of China Town, African shops and other ethnic groups. The scents are rich, mingled and both appealing and odd to your senses as he leads you expertly through those who are packing things away, unloading goods for another day, and brings you to a small tea shop, the light in the window a flickering florescent beckoning you in for tea.

Inside is warm, cosy, a few tables with older men at them drinking and along the back wall in the corners, nooks of pillows and cushions, to which Mbeki leads, and Ramus escorts you, still arm in arm. Motioning for you to sit, the man sinks slowly to the cushions himself and graces you with another bright, white grin. So glad you agreed, please shall we have tea and speak of our travels?

Ramus chuckles and sits himself, lounging back against the wall with a sigh. Tea and tales, I do like both, Cheryl?

Cheryl knew about this part of the city, but she hadn't spent much time here. Now she couldn't imagine why, with all the wonderful smells in the air and these lovely shops where everyone got to sit on pillows. It was like being back in the harbour tunnels with Skunk and Nosh, except a bit cleaner and with more people around.

"I'll think I'll even order something. A hot drink would be nice right about now." She settled in with them and her smile widened.. Her relaxation only flickered once, when she shot her eyes to the door, half-expecting Jonathon to slink in after them. She wouldn't let that bother her right now, though. "I was trying to think of some stories during the rest of my shift, but now after...well, I'm drawing a bit of a blank. I guess, is there anything in particular you're curious about?"

Perhaps a story of you, I find it easier when one talks about something they have enjoyed, a story of travel and strange things that are good things, not, as ah... A pause as you are sure he is refering back to the alley and Jonathon. A woman in traditional dress comes up to offer teas, a wide variety it seems, to choose from, all in their traditional pots and delicate tea cups. Start perhaps, with fun?

Cheryl was quite clearly excited at the selection of teas offered, like a kid in a candy store instead of someone being offered flavored water. Every once in a while, she tasted the food that she cooked, but she hadn't had any beverages in a while except for a cocktail at some point. This time, she went for a spicy citrus blend.

"Something fun, huh?" She leaned forward on the table, pillowing her cheek on her fist as she gazed up in thought. Only when the waitress left did she continue. "The first time I figured out how to talk to animals was unbelievable." A grin lit her face. "For nights, I alternated between being weirded out by the experience and running after every critter I could find like a little kid. I can't remember how many crows, pigeons, and rabbits I shanghaied into simply saying hello before I'd run off to the next one." Probably drove Jonathon crazy...

The thought made her trail off, and she didn't pick up again when she recalled that she wasn't entirely sure of what Mbeki was yet or how much he knew. She glanced at him and Ramus for any hint that she was overstepping what could be discussed. "Honestly, most of the fun I've had was in my early days and...very recently. The time in between didn't have much of that."

Ramus merely nods, a clearly amused grin on his face and does not seem overly concerned. What, who was Mbeki, that was the hard part to be honest, but he, unlike Ramus, or even others, was simple, basic, honest, open, and you couldn't even say why, just the man seemed to be earnest, nodding too at your description of running about as if he knows how such a thing would be so delightful.

Ah yes, the voices of the creatures of the earth, how strange it is that man does not listen to them, for they speak, even to those without the ears to hear, there is still communication. They have knowledge too, did you know, an oral history if you might ask to know what it is, of where to hunt, what to seek, how to build a nest...

Cheryl giggled, covering her mouth to quiet the sound, and nodded. "I met a kitten at the docks who decided that he wanted to adopt me. Said that I could share his sleeping space since I didn't have one of my own nearby. I might have to try asking the cats there and the cats in the suburbs about their stories. The ones near the harbour know well what 'darkness' is and to avoid it, but house cats in some areas don't even know what I mean when I ask them about that."

Ah yes, to think if we but listened, they care more for us then perhaps we who walk think to care for them in many stations. And as those of us who speak with human tongue, we too are such like those cats, some who see and know the dark and others who do not know of what the world holds about them. Tell me, do you remember when you first realized that this world is so much more, so much larger then the kitten-humans of the suburbia declare? He leans back, sipping his own tea, a hint of spice and sweet, while Ramus merely watches, looking utterly content to be listening, how strange to see the flamboyant man so still and calm.

Cheryl's grin slowly slid away, and her most cheerful memories gave way to the one that Mbeki asked about. She raised her cup of tea, inhaling the scented steam coming out before sipping. "The circumstances of my introduction to it were...rushed. I didn't have the opportunity to get to know it more beforehand." This question was getting into much more personal affairs that she didn't know Kindred to talk about most of the time, at least not this casually.

Ah, then you had no notice until it was thrust upon you, a world dumped into your lap, I see, some had inklings for ages, others always have them and never partake, for in such, the psychics of the world, you know, not all are trickery and fake, such a world it is. Forgive then my pressing upon your awakening. An honest apology as he bows his head toward you before looking to Ramus.

I am full of much thankfulness that you have chosen to be kind this time Ramus, for it is not often there is one who is comfortable to speak and share knowledge within this continent, how strange it is, for within my home, to share is tradition.

Ramus nods, leaning forward and there is that familiar grin and sparkle to his eye. Am I being complimented again this night, ah ladies, gentlemen, you make a simple wanderer embarrassed you do.

"It's alright," she quickly assured, even if she still felt conflicted over how much of her afterlife she wanted these two to know about. Ramus' antics brought a smile back to her face and a quiet half-laugh. She tilted her teacup from side to side and watched the contents swirl in circles. "My sire, Jonathon...he taught me just about the opposite. Get as much information and give as little away as possible. Getting too comfortable can get you in trouble. And, well...then I ran into trouble that made me believe him, so it's hard to let go of."

Trouble schmouble, you need to stick with me then little sister, I can keep you away from all that jazz, a life of sipping mai tais on the beach by the light of the moon, ah how about it, you, me, run away?? Ramus arches a brow suggestively while Mbeki shakes his head slightly. There are many proverbs on how to walk away from you cousin, as well as the meanings of your promises, the Trickster has both blessed and cursed you, I think perhaps tonight I shall bless you this time. There is light hearted teasing now between them both, perhaps lightening it to not push you further on something relating to the man in the alley, ah but what, who was Mbeki, he is very clearly far more then he seems.

Cheryl full out laughed at that, trying to envision Jonathon finding her lounging on some beach with a Ravnos. She didn't even want to imagine what Jarl would think. He'd probably be testy enough just hearing about this outing. Instead of that, she just focused on the nice feeling that both these men were trying to make her feel comfortable. They didn't have to do that.

"All right, all right. You've heard some of my stories, then. How about you tell me one?" She looked at Mbeki with interest.
