Don't say it Lukas. Don't say anything. Shut up shut up shut up shut it! Lukas thought as he listened to what Pat was saying. He was wrestling with the overwhelming urge to get snarkie. Several long, drawn out rebuttals entered his mind. He could dissect everything Pat said, and refute most of it, but what good would it do? He had said he was sorry, tried everything to make it up to Pat, and still, he felt himself being baited. The vain on the side of his head throbbed, and he looked like he might just blow up again, but he just smiled.

Matt had decided to step in, being as reasonable as he could be in such a volatile situation. What he said would probably do no good, but at least everyone had decided to push this stuff under the rug and just go out already.

Skyler had made her way inside. Lukas could have been mad about her trying to listen in on his private conversations, he could have been mad at a lot of things really, but he held it in. For the sake of the relationships in this group, he had to.

When Aiva called him Daddy, and then Matt and Pat uncles, Drifter's eye twitched. He still had the smile on his face, but inside, he was on fire. Everything inside him was screaming to reject any form of makeshift family that could come out of this. For quite awhile the only people he thought of as his family were Matt and Pat, so adding more was just bringing back bad memories.

The prospect of a family was a pretty negative thing to Drifter at this point, even if deep down it's what he knew he needed. But even still, he couldn't shake the idea that family meant fragmentation, not unity.

This was a time where the levity of the situation seemed to separate him from the world, a disconnect. He wasn't here, this didn't have to happen, he could step away......

But this was reality, and this was happening. Gritting through his churning insides, he grabbed his wallet off the desk, took a swig of vodka from the bottle, and then spoke.

"Who's car are we taking?"



(Time skip time, i think. Feel free to just react to this post and wait for me to get them in the club on my next, or set the scene yourself. Doesn't matter who does it.)

For now, it was likely the best time to just forget everything, but only if it was that easy to do. Still, that was something he was willing to try if it avoided anymore of the arguing. Skyler, Luke’s previous significant other had been spying on them, though apparently that was something that had been muted by some odd voice that he didn’t quite know who made it. ”No, it’s not your fault. I’m just too damn stubborn for my own good.” Pat sighed, chewing on his bottom lip a little nervously, giving his friend a pat on the shoulder. ”Don’t go nailing yourself on any metaphorical crosses. Going to really kill the mood.” There was drinking to be done, so he had to get that done with.

”My cars a little too small for everyone to squeeze in, but anyone that wants come along can.”

Re: We Don't Talk Anymore (Starring: Malus, Skyler, Drifter, Withdrawl, and Humanity)

Post by Humanity on May 15th 2017, 12:56 am

Humanity opened his phone and he actually couldn't contain himself as he closed his eyes and let out a very firm sigh, one border-lining anger and aggression as his face flushed. Humanity quickly deleted the text from his phone, contemplating sending a friend of his to work in completely scrubbing it from the internet. He found his face warm and full of color as he tried to reason through his feelings. Embarrassment was one, pleasant surprise was another and unending rage and infuriating were all present. Of course the rage died as he began to write out a large text, quickly stopping when he realized what it was that he had been typing.

He initially rebuked her for her carelessness,insinuating that such a "private" and "personal" individual such as herself just posted a flash-shot in a text message that was now out there for literally any hacker. Even with her face out of the picture it was still incredibly stupid and impulsive. After a second glance at the message, however, he seemed to look sorry for what he was about to say. In a motion his thumb moved and hovered over the x, pressing it and clearing the whole message.

You're somethin' else. I'll be back later, until then be careful with those things! You might hurt yourself! Haha. He pushed the buttons and even used a less than sign with a three, but quickly retracted them, looking it over longer than he should have before he sent out the text. His texts would always and forever be far more stoic than he was when he was face to face with her. He was always playing the Ice-man, the estranged and unattached person when it came to contact that wasn't face to face. Then again it partially helped his own defense mechanism of not letting people too close and not letting his guard down so someone could discern something from his messages.

"...Oh darn. Not enough room for all 5 of us." Matthew stated rather blandly as he looked down at Pat's car. Most cars had the afforded seating of 5 people. The driver, the front passenger and a pas anger bench in the back that could hold up to 3 people. Not comfortably, but... three people none the less. Matthew had to wonder if this was just Pat's way of being petty and trying to snub him or Luke. With a deep breath he prepared himself.

"Pat you and Malus can get yourselves there. I'll play chauffeur to these guys. I'll pull it around." He said as he started down the hallway towards the stairs. It was true, he didn't have a car of his own at the moment he quickly shot off a text message as he walked before disappearing down the stairwell. The next time they'd see him would be in a rather old car, but one that was likely a lot easier to breathe in..

((Scene shift))

Despite the ride being in a year 2001 Camry with a dent in it, the interior had been fine and the ride down was actually quite refreshing. The radio didn't work, but the air conditioner was fine. It was actually a small reminder to Matthew that he actually had it worse off than his friends did when it came to "surviving" and living. But the truth be told? He was genuinely happy on the car ride down. Luke was still on edge, but Matthew knew exactly what to do. He tapped a few buttons on his phone and the playlist began to play. Matt actually felt bad for Skyler as the Imagine Dragons songs began to kick up, though eh couldn't help but smile and call her out on singing under her breath, a wide smile on display as he tried to rally the cause. It was a long 15 minute ride, but truthfully he felt like it did some good for morale. when he stepped out of the car he was happy, and even if Luke wasn't beaming from ear to ear he was hopefully feeling better in some degrees, if for nothing else than some of his favorite music in the car.

The club of choice was one that Matthew had selected, oddly enough. The place was called "King's Krown", a renovated warehouse that sat against the night sky. The club itself had earlier been established as one of the hottest places in Hollywood to catch a dance under the name "King King" way back when. Now it had expanded it's reach a bit and dug some claws into Los Angeles, and so this establishment was created.

"This place was gettin' set up a few years back. I ended up making nice with one of the kids of the bar tenders that worked here, His dad work's the line. So long as he's workin' we don't wait." Matt said as he placed his hand into his peacoat and ran across the road, not really looking to see if there had been anyone following him. He wondered if it the thought had dawned on any of them that he was actually the only one present that was not legally able to go into a bar. Matthew spied the one bouncer he was looking for, flashing a smile and a wave before motioning for his brothers and their newfound playthings through the line, despite several protests.

The interior of the club was actually rather amazing. The ambiance was dark and there was some rather clean audio playing form the live entertainment up on the stage. This place was a great place to see people live from a ton of different musical genres. The place stayed busy because it catered to so many different tastes throughout the night. Dark rooms, the occasional rave-like fluorescent lights on the walls, the dance floor was lit up and all around the only thing people could see were the masses dancing or sitting in some of the nicest purple plush couches you'd ever seen at black granite tabletops with rosewood bases. The noise was loud, but maybe that's what they needed right now.

"Alright, let's live it up!" Matt yelled as he stepped off, seeming to make a b-line straight to a table while twisting and jumping around, funneling through and around oncoming people and drink carriers.

Post by Chellizard on May 15th 2017, 2:30 am

You bbe carefwul wit thoSee tings.... And do you thbunk im an idiot? crypt lines silly. laying on her side, she had sent a rushed reply, her eyes feeling heavy again. Sleep was good, and her twenty minute naps were not going to hold her over. She would just take his word that he would be back later and fall asleep, curling her arms around of a pillow that smelled like him.

--

Skyler felt a stinging feeling in the pit of her stomach. Her heart felt a little weak as well. Something was off with Lukas, and it had to be her. She just accepted his sour attitude as her own fault and waited until she was in the elevator with Lukas alone, seeing as Malus and Pat had broken off to go on their own way.

As the elevator doors closed, Skyler pulled the emergency stop button and turned to Lukas.

"I.." she opened her mouth, ready to speak... but she chose to just pull into him and give him a kiss. Her hand curled into his hair and she pulled slightly, playing a bit rough at this point. She pulled away from him, moving her hand up to wipe over his lips and make sure her lipstick hadn't smudged off on him.

"We're okay for now, but what I did wasn't. Let's not ruin this night..." she said, kissing him once more while reaching to press the emergency stop back into the correct position.

--

The elevator would open to the parking garage, and she stepped out noticing the 2001 Camry pulling up. Matthew was in the driver seat so she took that as her invitation to get into the car. Sliding into the back seat, she let Lukas ride shot gun next to his friend.

The ride was mostly silent, a few good songs coming on. Skyler had heard most of them thanks to Luke, and she listened to them on her own sometimes. Muttering the lyrics under her breath, she looked out the window. The music was quite loud, and she was sure it was masking her words. But, Matthew had heard her somehow and managed to catch her gaze in the rear view mirror. Offering a toothless smile, Skyler's lips would curl, and then she looked back out of the window.

The King's Krown was actually quite popular, and she had actually heard about it. There was a private show put on here once by Girl ALIVE! and Lilia had wanted to go so badly... it would have been dark and crowded so she wouldn't have to worry about people staring at her choice of clothes... but they didn't go. Other things got in the way.

Getting out of the car, Skyler suddenly began to regret her choice of attire. She had only room for one gun to be tucked into the underside of her bra, the push-up effect hiding the fact she had a gun stashed on her. The eye patch she wore was one of her newer test models for a discreet form of AIVA's latest update. The one where Skyler could see using a little camera hooked up to her optic nerve. The picture coming into her right eye was a bit fuzzy, and it felt as if something was constantly in front of her face, but it was a lot more discreet than the other eye patch she had been wearing earlier to attempt and spy on the private conversation.

"This place isn't bad." she said, bobbing her head along with the music. She made sure to stick to Luke's side. There was a lot of dancing, gyrating, and grinding to be done tonight. And, as much as she hated people, it was okay to let loose every now and again.


--

Malus and Pat had been let off the hook of being chauffeur for the night. And now that they were alone, Malus would look to Pat with his lower lip trapped between his teeth.

"Are you still.. upset with me?" finally asking, Malus scowled as the two of them chose to walk down the stairs instead of taking the elevator. It only felt right since Luke and Skyler obviously needed some time alone.

"I didn't mean to lie about my name. It just. Kind of happened. My name is weird. I'm also somewhat ashamed of it. Malus is so weird. It makes me feel like.. well, a bad person. Considering what it means, you know?" moving his hand through his hair, he felt a wave of anxiety rush over him. His heart rate quickened, and he remembered back to their dinner.

Pat had figured out that Malus' full name was not just Marcus, cute guy he met at a bar... it was Malus Takeiro. And that meant he was likely related to the business woman, Chelle Takeiro. And that meant he had to be some playboy billionaire of some sorts. But, even if Malus told Pat he wasn't and hadn't even talked to his mom in... he settled with years, that didn't mean he was a spoiled rich kid.

In fact, he was somewhat the opposite. He had been trapped for 100 years in a box, though, so he actually kind of was a spoiled rich kid. It explained his attitude, to be honest.

"I didn't want your first impression of me to be that I was some spoiled kid of a billionaire business bitch, you know?" offering a witty quip, he looked to Pat's face to see if he was smiling yet or not.

Their walk would continue with conversation, and Malus would hesitate at the car, waiting to see if he was okay to ride along with Pat.

And part of Malus wanted to be even more honest with Pat, but it wasn't time yet. Not here. Not tonight. There was a better time, and a better place, to reveal that you had powers to someone you had strong feelings for.

Dare he say... love?

Good music coupled with smooth driving got the two of them to King's Krown. Malus had never been to this place, nor had he heard of it. He was a new resident of LA, after all. The music was so loud he could feel it in his feet as they walked up to the front doors.

"Geeze, this place is kind of... overwhelming." he said, looking to Pat again as they walked up to the front. They would have to meet up with Matt, Luke, and Skyler eventually. For the time being, Malus would grab Pat by the hand and lead him toward the bar. Step one would be help Pat to get as drunk as he wanted to!

Re: We Don't Talk Anymore (Starring: Malus, Skyler, Drifter, Withdrawl, and Humanity)

Post by Drifter on May 15th 2017, 3:18 pm

Luke was half drunk as it was, and now he was headed to a club/bar/whatever to get even more wasted. For the time being though, he functioned as he normally would. Matt and Pat could attest to the fact Lukas pretty much acted sober up to a very intoxicated point, he was just a bit more giggly. Pat, on the other hand........ Let's just say calls with Drunk Pat were amusing.

Matt went to get his vehicle, and the remaining four in the hotel split up. Luke was of course with Skyler, in the elevator, while Pat and Malus went down the stairs. For a moment Drifter thought the reasoning behind that was Pat wanting to see if he could beat the elevator down, but then Luke remembered they weren't  ten anymore.

The tension in the air was thick as, floor by floor, the elevator descended. It seemed they both were were waiting for the other to say something, but in the end it was Skyler who took the initiative. Skyler kissed him, yanking at his hair a little, causing a slight "ouch" to escape his lips. Luke didn't really know how to react. To be completely honest this whole intimacy thing wasn't exactly native, but he went with it all the same...

"Alright......... I really shouldn't have snapped at you. We'll just forget about things tonight." Drifter said, still not exactly happy, but he was coming around.

Once in the car, Matt put on a playlist that seemed like Luke had made it. Imagine Dragons, Rise Against, Cold Play, EDEN, and a little Red. Now, Matt and him shared quite a lot in the music department, but this was not a Matt playlist. It was probably engineered to try to cheer him up, and even if the music itself didn't, the idea is what counted. He ended up singing along a bit during the ride, being as happy as he could physically force himself to be. Something about a volume level that drowned everything else out made things less embarrassing, so he goofed around a bit.

Luke seemed to be the only one not familiar with this place they were going to, which was interesting considering he was the one to set this get together up. That said, he was glad Matt decided to choose. The more everyone else could be included, the better.

__________________


Plain and simple, this was not Drifter's scene. Lights, bad techno music, grinding and people being sexually inappropriate. He knew this was going to be the case though, so it wouldn't stop him from having some fun. As introverted as he was, maybe it's what he needed.

With Skyler by his side, and hopefully the others in toe, he made his way to the bar. There were about a billion drink choices on a massive menu hanging from the ceiling, but he had little interest in anything named. For himself, anyway.

There was a drink called Sex in the Bathroom. Luke got a giant smirk on his face, and couldn't stop chuckling. He leaned in and whispered in the bartender's ear, ordering a maple bourbon for himself and his joke of a drink for Skyler.

Apparently this thing wasn't even supposed to be appetizing, just really, um, dirty? Yeah, probably the word. It was flavored lemon tonic, vodka, and a slight bit of sweetener, then it was lit on fire. Apparently this was supposed to simulate the actual act, that or just kill you with how terrible it was. Either way, when Skyler was served, Drifter couldn't contain himself. He burst out laughing, giving Skyler a wink as he sipped his own drink.

"If we're lucky, by the end of tonight we won't have to settle for the terrible drink that sells only because guy's like me think it's funny variety." Drifter said, turning his back to the bar to face the dance floor. He leaned on the counter, shaking his head.

"Put on some real music! Jesus, how cliche is this shit?" Luke yelled toward the DJ. The guy probably wouldn't listen, but it was more to express his distain, really.

Chauffeuring Malus around would have been fine, something told him he would end up doing that anyway. ”Try not to sound too disappoined.” Snubbing hadn’t been on the agenda, but he had no control over how people saw what he did or said. With a shrug, he and Malus would have their ride to whatever the name of the club they were supposed to be meeting at was. That was when the awkward conversation could commence, though it hadn’t been started by him. Difficult conversation was always something he found difficult to actually start, though his own pettiness likely made that difficult anyway.

”No..i’m not mad.” Anger had faded, though he had no idea what he even felt about the whole thing. Maybe just that he was just out of his league, or something else entirely. He had figured out the truth, yet anger had lost its luster rather quickly. Having the impression of someone being a billionare would have been poor, granted he already knew a billionaire that was less likely to hide that small fact. ”Well, not anymore.  I’m already over whatever I was mad about, so why don’t we just enjoy tonight.” He shrugged, the ride from there pleasant enough.

Even if he would have rather been home, or doing anything else right now. Reaching the bar proper lead to ordering drinks, though Pat just got whatever he thought would taste good and went with it. He could get drunk from that regardless, though he did need to drive himself so he didn’t get a drink at all in retrospect. He would let Malus drink, maybe make up for the fact that he had been a total ass before. ”I dunno, the music sounds pretty okay to me.” Pat interjected when Luke mentioned something about the music being terrible once he had homed in on where everyone else was.

Matt didn't have an opinion on the music one way or the other. What he did have an opinion on was the King's Cup, although he ordered iit specifically without any of the damned sprinkles or any of the Mardi gras extras. It wasn't the season for it, but of course it's not like it mattered. It was pertainent to it somewhere, right? The bartender didn't even card him as they turned their back and began to make his drink. Matthew's eyes furrowed a small bit, finding that incredibly odd. He had a slight look of caution and disbelief on his face when suddenly a rather nice middle aged woman stepped between him and the ther bartender. Her hand came up to his shoulder, to which the man tensed up and a scowel crossed his face. Matthew was on the edge of his seat, but forced a smile when the womn looked to him with her narrowed eyebrows.

   "Did you card this young man? I can't help but feel he's a little young..." She said, the way she drew out the words were almost as if she were threatening him...but the emphasis almost made it comical and somehow not very threatening at all. Of course it didn't help that he knew this woman.

  "Hey Peggy." Matthew said, beaming a wide smile his eyes flicking back to the other bartender as he placed the stuff down, muttering an apology before clearing his throat and pissing off to deal with other customers.

 "Matthew May you are about one year and thirty days late to dinner." she said as she placed her fists on her hips and cracking a smile before turning around and finishing off his drink. The vodka was mixed with the pineapple evenly and a little sours was added, lime juice and champeign to top off the masterpiece as she handed it to him from across the table.
 
 "Sorry mom. Thought it'd be a little strange to show up after...well... Mr.Robinson lost it on me." Matthew said with a little bit of hesitence in his voice taking a sip of the drink. Peg just laughed a little before shaking her head. He looked over in the crowd to see Luke call to the DJ to change the song, but all the DJ did was look at him and hold up 1 finger. When the song was finished it would transition to a more lively beat to rock out to.

 "It's been a year bubby. Trust me it's taken time but... He's a little more open to this kinda thing now." She stated, to which Matthew smirked a bit with an arched eyebrow, as if saying "mhm. Sure." in response before taking a drink. "Speaking of a little more open." She stated, causing Matt to look at her funny before arms wrapped around him and he felt the full weight of another human being on his back, leaning forward with their face plastered on his shoulder.

  "Matty!!!" The voice was smooth with a slight twang to it. The voice actually was rather familiar, causing Matt to arch his back to break free and turn around. "Howdy!" He said with a wide smile. The face of a trickster god itself with brown hair messed up into a sort of spike, his attire consisting of a white shirt with a blue and purple plaid unbuttoned overshirt with sleeves rolled up. Of course he had his muddy and torn jeans, but that was of no surprise at all. The first thing Matt did was barrel forward and wrap his arms around his old friend, happy to see they were still very much alive.
   
    "I'll let y'all catch up." Peg said as she smiled and walked off, tending to the dozens of people waiting for more drinks.


    Matthew sat at the bar, talking and occasionally getting up just to walk and stretch his legs. Everywhere he did though his friend was right at his side. The conversation eventually found it's way to a booth here Matt had actually started more discrete discussion, ones that he kept a wary eye out for Pat and Luke about. As the conversation continued so did the drinking, though he was reminded occasionally about his inability to get drunk, which was a point of annoyance for him. But an hour had passed, maybe a little more and he found himself looking over at Luke and Pat.

   "Wow...shit man." His friend said as he ran a hand through his hair. He looked over to Matthew, whose eyes both widened as he nodded and then killed the remainder of his 5th drink. "So...you're all scared that you're now in this marriage...and ye just might like her?"

  "No, all of me likes her. I'm just not sure...which part of me..." Matthew began as he frustrated himself over trying to mince his words. "I'm not sure who is the one who has a thing for her, alright?" He said as he snatched up his friend's drink and downed that too. His friend gave a wide smile and leaned away from him, putting his hands up in a feigned surrender, which warranted only a glare.

  "Seems to me like anyone with a lick-a common sense would probably jump on the opportunity. I mean... from what you say she's nice-ish. She's a bit controlling but that might actually be good for ya, you're always tryin' too hard to take care of everything. You need a partner, a friend before you need a lover. Sounds like she's pushin' the lover thing pretty hard but... well I just think that maybe you need to realize it's not every day that you find yourself in this situation. I mean she may not be "the one" but that one is long gone. You might not even be "the one" for her either. But if you got somethin good here? Hang onto it. You're sayin' that you feel as though you normally would have never fallen in love... well... maybe this is; call it god or Fate or whatever...maybe this is Matthew May finally catching a break. Maybe the relationship doesn't work. Maybe it does. Maybe you are conflicted. Maybe Yamm loves her and you don't. Maybe you love her and Yamm doesn't. No matter how you slice it... some part of you loves her, and some part of her loves you. You owe it to yourself, and her, to give it a shot. I promise you, even if it doesn't pan out; you two are gonna be fine." the words were well spoken, though a bit jumbled. Matt knew what it was that he was saying, but truthfully he still wasn't sold.

  He just met this woman and they had this chemistry, but he wasn't certain that it was him. Or maybe it was him, or what if things didn't...work out? Sure as far as his buddy knows it's just a little bit of an older chick. Truth is this dangerous bitch went and killed her last husband because she thought he got her son killed. Now her son is sleeping with someone whose practically his brother.

 "I hate my life." Matthew resolved as he tried to keep himself together. Then you had another looming problem. His whole secret vigilante lifestyle that he kept from Withdrawl and Drifter. Pat and Luke. This division only made decisions such as this "marriage" more difficult. He would decide to stand up and move past his friend, walking back towards the bar only to bump into Pat and Luke. Immediately he froe like a deer in headlights as he went to speak, he grew pale and he began to stammer before turning around and just walking back to the table.

  "I have a cyanide capsule here somewhere." he muttered, though his friend reached up and delivered a powerful swat to the back of Matt's head, the glasses flying off his face.

 "It's infatuation and maybe, at worst, love you little drama king. Thousands of people fall in and out of it all the damn time." He said as he scoffed and leaned back. "You've turned right into a hot mess since I last saw you. We've completely changed places." He leaned back and instantly the response that Matt gave took him off guard.

"How's my hound?"

Skyler always felt bad when Lukas bought her drinks because she was sure she had explained to him that she was incapable of getting drunk. Her body just would not let her. There was no way she could physically get drunk. No matter how hard she tried, either.

"If you're insinuating something, we can ditch everyone for a few minutes and catch back up. I'm sure there's an empty supply closet somewhere," she said, accepting his drink named 'Sex in the Bathroom.' The fact it was on fire was a bit exciting, and part of her wished she could get drunk. She had never experienced that in her entire life. She had experienced most things she was capable of, but not getting completely shit faced. It would be something she could never do. At least, while she had this insane cellular regeneration.

Part of her wanted to formulate or figure out how to make that serum that prevented her eye from healing back. It would take a while, and she would need to hire someone, but she could use it to be... normal for once. To drink, to feel pain. It would be something new.

But, she was here and had no such thing at this moment in time. There was no way she would be getting drunk tonight.

"Although, the bathroom isn't a bad idea." She leaned to Luke and kissed his cheek, accepting the drink as the bartender lit it on fire.

"I agree, Pat! The music isn't so bad," Skyler said, smirking as she leaned around of Luke to interact with him. She then looked back to her drink and watched the flames shift a bit.

Cupping her hand over the flame, she smothered it. Normally this would burn someone, but as it burned her, her hand healed itself. The fire snuffed out, and then she downed the drink with one toss of the glass up and into her mouth. The bartender looked at her, and so did a few other people at the bar, complete shock on their faces. Setting it down, she grabbed Luke by the hand and lead him out onto the dance floor.

"Dance with me." she said, her body moving into his as the two of them moved into the crowd. Other people would bump into them as they danced and gyrated to the music. The next song that came on was actually something Luke would probably like, but would never admit to liking. It was the song Demon's by Imagine Dragons, but remixed. The vocals were there with an amazing beat that just... made Skyler want to move.

This night was good, and she was glad she was out here with Luke, his friends, and all these strangers!


--

"Well, that's good! What would you like to drink?" Malus asked, his hand snaking around of Pat's waist as they walked into the nightclub slash bar. Malus' hand actually found it's way into Pat's back pocket, resting in there as they walked. He liked the idea of being so entwined with his boyfriend. It made him happy. It was... something he was so happy he could express. He was so glad they were in an era where this was possible without being shamed or beaten. At least, not like it was as little as five years ago. A lot had changed in this world, and he was glad to be a part of it.

As the two of them walked in, Malus had to focus on other things so the loud music didn't hurt his ears. The many smells of sweating bodies, faint bits of heroine, cocaine, and marijuana rushed into his nostrils. The heavy smell of sweetener mix and alcohol also exploded his senses. He had to literally focus on one thing to not go crazy, and that was Pat.

Coming up alongside of Pat to the bar, Malus waved for the bartender, a crisp fifty dollar bill in his hand.

"I'll have one of your finest brandy's, and whatever this guy right here wants." grinning to Pat, Malus' dimples were more pronounced as he moved his free hand to shift his hair into a more suitable position.

The music was blaring, but actually enjoyable. He had no idea how so many genres could be smashed into one song! It was kind of ridiculous. But, it was pleasing to his ears, and it made him want to tap his toes. So, not all was lost so far on this night.

Glancing down the length of the bar, Malus noticed Luke and Skyler were there, and Pat had moved to be near to them. Grabbing his brandy, and the drink Pat had ordered, Malus moved down to be closer to the three of them. As Malus got there, Skyler mentioned something about the music, downed her drink, and then grabbed Luke to dance.

Malus took a swig of his brandy and offered Pat the drink he had ordered.

"Wanna go dance, too?" Malus asked, standing next to Pat with one hand in his pocket, the other around his glass.

Re: We Don't Talk Anymore (Starring: Malus, Skyler, Drifter, Withdrawl, and Humanity)

Post by Drifter on May 17th 2017, 10:30 am

As fun as leaving everyone behind to find a closet or go to the bathroom sounded, there were a couple of reasons why that wasn't happening. One, he didn't set this up just to spend time with Skyler. He wouldn't have went through all that hotel argument business if that were the case. Plain and simple, it was a dick move.

The other reason was, no, despite his little hint, it was only a joke. He might as well have been fifteen when it came to the subject of sex. It wasn't something he did lightly, and certainly was too much of a prud to do that in public. Either way though, he got a laugh out of it.

"Nah........ The brothers need some more glue. I just hope this works. I already lost one family." Lukas said, hammering back his drink right before he heard both Pat and Skyler say the music wasn't too bad. Drifter grimaced.

"Pat-a-tat-tat, yes it is terrible. Sounds like the instrumental to a early 2000s Lil' Wayne song mixed with bad dubstep." Luke said. He was showing clear signs of drunkenness now, laughing wildly after every sentence. He also seemed a bit off balance, and more then once used Skyler to stabilize, and at one point did the same on Pat's shoulder.

Finally, something a bit better came on. It still had the same electronica that clubs insisted on mixed in, but at least it wasn't ear rape.

With his drink gone, Skyler suggested they dance. He resisted a moment, planting his body into the ground as she tugged on his arm.

"Oh no no no, I'm horrible.............. Wait, hold on, just let me get this shot............ Ok, now I'm amazing. Let's dance." Drifter said, quickly getting and shooting a shot of tequila. He normally wouldn't dance no matter what anyone said, but tonight he might have just been drunk enough.

Just before they went off to the dance floor, Matt bumped right into Drifter. He looked like he had something to say, but then stuttered a minute and turned around to go back to a table he seemed to be sharing with someone. Luke smiled.

"After this dance, I'm gonna break that 'i can't get drunk' complex. You just watch." Luke said as Skyler finally managed to completely submerge him in the crowd. There were so many people in such a tight space, it was a wonder how this didn't turn into a riot.

As the song played, Drifter tried his best to drunkenly shake around. He really was not a dancer. Despite his love of music, judging by his movements he had no rhythm at all.

"SEE! I totally suck. But you know who is like, a world class break dancer? Pat." Luke said, pointing to his friend before starting to yell.

"Pat! Show um your moves! I believe in you! Everyone, my buddy is like, Step Up level at break dancing. Watch!" Drifter said, a wicked grin on his face. People started to pay attention to Pat now, cheering and expecting a show. Hell, they even formed a little ten foot wide circle, just like in the movies.

As dickish as this was, Luke truly wanted to see how Pat handled it. Maybe he would even have fun.

As for drinks, Pat decided against anything. Instead he just sat around, watching everyone go about with their lives while he sat, elbows on the table and chin resting on his palm. He was reminded however why he hated clubs. At least he could enjoy what Luke called dancing, granted he had no room to talk as far as that was concerned. He was pretty shit when it came to dancing, and the fact drinking was out of the question meant he had to sit there, his usual awkward and slightly grumpy self. Being invited to dance as well, that just made him...well not so pleased.

”Nah, i’m not exactly the dancing type. Sorta break so many stereotypes it’s not even funny.” He said waving off the invitation. ”You should totally dance though, give me something good to look at.” He smirked, letting the joke sink in before noticing that Matt was off doing whatever it was that Matt’s did in clubs, which involved bumping into people apparantly.”Well Matt, who’s the friend?” Pat asked,  seemingly perking up a few notches. He had a feeling Luke was calling him out for a dance battle, but all he did was shoot him a sideways middle finger.

No way was he going to embarrass himself in public. ”Anyway, I’m Pat.” He offered a hand and a wink, ignorable as it was. Whether it was to annoy Matt or legitimate no one could really say, though either was likely.

Post by Humanity on May 22nd 2017, 9:03 pm

Pat was called out, but he just flipped Luke the bird as the masses gathered around. Matt's friend seemed to catch wind of the crowd and break away from the conversation a little bit to see what was happening. Pat made his way over to the table and seemed to take a particular interest in the guy Matt was talking to. Matt immediately looked at Pat, a little sad before looking to his glass solemn heaviness after Pat tried to turn on his charm. Matt brought the glass to his lips before taking a small sip.

     "Uh, for the next four minutes... I'm Pat too." Matt's friend said before returning the wink back at Withdrawl, sliding out of the booth and heading towards the dance floor. Matt watched as his friend walked over to where the crowd was a bit of a clamor or commotion. Matt looked about and sighed, attempting to find Malus. He would excuse himself from the table while Pat was distracted and would use his elite tracking ability to track down the phoenix. Nah, just kidding, he was totally winging it and looking wherever Pat was and where he was coming from. Knowing Malus he was following Patrick around like a lost puppy.

  "Hey Uh... we need to talk." He said as he looked to Malus, he said it friendly and nice, but his eyes were determined. He was going to have a conversation with Malus and if he had to he wasn't above resorting to a little blackmail. "So I'm uh... my friend's information source basically. I'm like...Oracle, but not as hot...and not as crippled. I uh- gotta talk to you about Pat. Come to the bar with me."  He insisted in a friendly way, a little lopsided smile on his face as he tried to be as friendly as he knew how to.

  Meanwhile, back on the dance floor, Matt's friend was getting ready to light it up. With no one to actually challenge him he felt like he could show off a little. He showed off a little footwork, a couple stomps on the ground before the music froze. Matt's friend froze with wide eyes and began to fall forward, but as he was id fall the music pickec back up again, his arms falling out and positioning out on the ground as he transitioned into fast paced flare styled flips. The momentum of his fall shifted into rotating his legs and utilizing the generated momentum to continue to go from there as he became a whipping blur of plaid and jeans. In the middle of a flair, the dude bent his arms and shoved off, flipping off to the side a bit and landing on one foot, the heel specifically as he let the momentum carry him like a spinning top, his overshirt whipping around. Then the spinning came to an end, both of his heels were on the ground and his plaid overshirt had been removed in the chaos, now hung over his shoulder like a matador with the red cape.

Spoiler:

     Matt's friend smirked before whipping the plaid shirt over his head and tossing it off to the side a bit as he stepped forward and resumed the rest of his breakdown. A hand on the ground to hold his entire body up, a series of hops from hand to hand and vast speeds of spinning. He seemed perfectly capable of pleasing the crowd. At one point he was at the opposite of the circle as his shirt. The song was at it's heaviest point as he acted like he was going to walk away, but when someone pushed him he fell backwards actually transitioning into a head-slide, a rather dangerous thing to attempt. As his slide didn't seem to stop, he put an arm out and snagged his plaid shirt as he passed, dropped from his head to his back. The drop turned seamlessly into a spinning windmill utilizing his legs, it was a Kung-fu technique adopted to break dancing. As his legs whipped around he threw his plaid shirt into the air, catching one of his legs and being whipped even higher into the air in the center of the circle. Without the use of his hands, the he propelled himself from the Windmill onto his feet, diving forward right into a one handed chair flare, to which everyone shouted. It took a ridiculous level of shoulder strength, knees pulled up and twisting in a corkscrew motion, his hand left the ground and his body did a 360 barrel in the air landing on the same hand that he had pushed off with his feet never touching the floor as he twisted, still rotating on his arm, his hand leaving every so often to reset and not snap his wrist. Hopping off of his arm he dropped his other arm down to turn 1into a 1.5 air flares. This immediately got the crows up in a roar again. The guy somehow went from his hand smooth liquid motion that seemed to defy physics. Both hands were on the ground, as his legs came up, spinning like helicopter blades, pushing from his hands off of the ground, his entire body rotating an extra 180 degrees with fierce speed and unparalleled grace, dropping from hands onto his shoulder and rolling off back into the air, landing on his hands and repeating the process. His shirt had fallen from the air once more before snagging on a leg again and being propelled back up into the air. He transitioned from the magnificent flares to a calm and smooth rotating gremlin spin on his one arm, putting his feet on the ground and holding an arm out as the song ended.
His plaid shirt fell over it dramatically before he'd to whip it around and put it on, not noticing that he actually put it on backwards, sighing and wiping the sweat off of his forehead and tried to catch his breath.

Malus had been behind of Pat, alike to the puppy dog he was. He was so smitten it hurt. Part of him wondered why he had fallen for a human, but maybe it was the fact he was just so... normal. It felt... right?

But, this was at the point in their relationship where Malus had no idea what skeletons were in Pat's closet, and he had no intention of finding out. At least, not yet. Not here. Not tonight.

Having left his drink behind, he was empty handed and eager to see what Pat was going after. But then his eyes cut across the crowd to find Matt sitting in a booth next to another individual. They looked to know Matt, considering they shared a conversation. Malus attempted to read their lips, but he was so rusty, it was impossible for him to focus on their conversation... that and the loud music.

Pat sauntered up to the table, Malus in tow. As Pat began his flirting, Malus overlooked it entirely, honestly not even having seen it. At least, he told himself he hadn't seen it. Part of him was hit with a twang of jealousy, but he had to hold himself together. He wasn't going to openly show his ass and make a fool of himself and his boyfriend. But were they a couple? Pat had used the term significant whatever so maybe they weren't but were at the same time.

Maybe Pat wanted an open relationship?

Freaking out internally, Malus was relieved when Matt came to him and asked to pull him aside. His thoughts were interrupted and it put a calming wave over him. But, it struck back up when he realized the conversation with Matt was going to become something he was going to regret, or hate, or both. It was about Pat, after all.

Swallowing hard, Malus followed Matt, moving to the bar. There were two open stools on the far end, and Matt had guided him there. It made chatting much easier without people bothering them. And with Pat enveloped in another conversation, or so it had seemed was going to happen, Malus found this time apart from Pat settling. Or, somewhat at least.

Breathing in sharply through his nose, Malus smiled and exhaled.

"So, what is it you wanted to talk about?" he asked, sitting a bit tense at the moment. He was eager to hear what Matt had to say, but nervous at the same time.


--

Skyler would clap and urge Pat to dance with them, but of course the invitation was null and void. Looking to Luke as he gave up dancing, she just offered him a small smile and moved back toward the bar. She would order a few more drinks, opening a tab for the night. She would explain whom she was buying drinks for, indicating it would be Luke, Pat, Malus, and Matt for the evening. No one else would be allowed to use her tab. The bartender complied, and she smiled, offering a twenty dollar tip for compliance.

"I appreciate it." she'd say, getting her white Russian. It was much better than the sex in the bathroom drink Luke had bought her earlier. The taste was just delicious.

The night was still young, and she couldn't get drunk, so she just instructed Aiva to keep an eye on the club. As Aiva attempted to access the security tapes, she hit a firewall.

"Mama, I cannot get passed the security... and I've tried everything." Skyler took that as her invitation to try harder. Getting her phone out, she started to type away on a black screen, green letters scrolling over as she entered code after code.

Aiva would chime into Skyler's ear every now and then, explaining she could see the code breaking down as Skyler's thumbs moved over the digital keyboard on the smart phone.

Finally, the security fell and Aiva had access. But, every feed was black. Now that was odd. Looking up to the ceiling, Skyler's eye patch would zoom in to view the cameras. The lens was blackened over. Why go to lengths to have a security system and have the cameras blackened?

Hissing under her breath, she downed the third White Russian presented to her, and then she moved to find Luke, wherever he had wandered off to. She had to tell him about what she had found out, even if she was wrongfully snooping again.

Pat was no fun. Granted, Luke probably wouldn't have gone through with being publicly embarrassed, but that was pointless self reflection. Pat should have danced, dammit!

Drifter laughed at being flipped off, and his drunkenness was at an all time high after his most recent round of shots. Even though Pat hadn't decided to provide for Luke's entertainment, the guy that was previously sitting with Matt decided to instead. Of course, it wasn't the humorous type of entertainment, but perhaps it was better.

The guy had some moves. Drifter just stared, sipping his drink and enjoying the feeling of his high blood alcohol level. His mind was making some weird jumps at this point. He had saw Pat trying to flirt with the guy, even though he came to this club with Malus, and now he was seeing this person dance like some world class performer. The only logical conclusion when you add in the fact Drifter disliked Malus, was getting Pat and this guy hooked up.

Lukas downed his last drink of the night, then staggered over to Matt's table. He sat down just as Matt's mysterious friend's  performance was coming to a close, light visible in his glazed eyes, and a devilish smirk on his face.

"Well well well, Patrick, you're shooting even higher. Dude has some skills. Albeit some completely unnecessary one's, but skillz none the less........" Luke said to Pat as the clapping subsided. Matt had left the table, which allowed a perfect time for Drifter and Withdrawal to ambush this guy.

"You know what.......? I'm just drunk enough to wingman for a gay friend. Call it, um, making it up to you? Sure, let's go with that. Fuck that other dude you brought. You clearly don't like him as much as Shirt On Backwards." Drifter said, just as, presumably, Matt's little friend returned to the table. Luke smiled warmly, holding out his hand for a shake.

"Sup kid? Name's Lukas, with a K. That's Pat, with a P. We're sorta Matty's pain in the ass.......Not physically, of course.... Well, at least not me. Can't say the same for Pat." Drifter rattled off. He was talking a mile a minute. Apparently somebody put a quarter in him.

"Anyway, those are some sick moves you got there. I know Pat liked them. I've known him long enough to know he likes a guy with certain......flexibility. Likely that jaw line, too.." Drifter said. He had no filter right now, evident by the ear to ear smirk permenantly plastered onto his face. This would either make this guy feel uncomfortable, angry, or embarrassed. But hell, if he could get the guy to blush, he was doing his job right.

Reading social cues was not something that Pat could say he prided himself in, but he had hoped the wink returned to him was something along the lines of the male returning the flirtation. That was when Matt's friend, now being Pat as he began to show his moves on the dance floor with what could easily be called admirable skill. How anyone could dance like that was beyond his own understanding, but then again he couldn’t help appreciate the show of dexterity.  Focusing on the dancing allowed Luke to sneak up on him with no problem, which lead to Pat jumping slightly when he turned to the male with an arced brow. Both of them had figured out his aim, but then again he hadn’t expected Luke as drunk as he seemed to figure that part out. ”Yeah, his skills are pretty good.” He admitted, though Luke didn’t seem too interested in the subtlety side of things, mentioning something about being a wingman.

His friend was making sure to show his disdain for Malus, which brought context to him helping Pat try and flirt with the stranger. Still, the following conversation did make thing a little awkward considering how open Luke was being about things, which only made him avert his eyes in slight embarrassment. Not that he hadn’t intended to flirt with the guy, but working up to it was the intention. Bringing Matt into it only made him cough, as if he had somehow managed to choke on his own saliva.

”Yeah, you had some pretty great moves. I didn't know anyone could move like that.” That much he could agree on. ”So...um...what’s your poison?” He asked, trying to conjure up a grin or maybe even just a smile, keeping in mind what he said and ordering said drink, before settling it down before him. ”Drinks on me.” He added, hoping Luke didn’t make this any more awkward than it was.

"You're hot. You're obviously pretty funny and you're doing all the right things.... for absolutely anyone else." Matt said for a moment as he sighed and nodded a bit, turning to Malus and giving him the bad news. "Pat's not like most guys. He's different. He has to have an area of interest. He needs to be interested, something needs to snag him and keep him there. You need an allure of mystery. You need to be someone he can rely on, but yet can still keep him guessing. Sadly you're just plain, old...whatever you are." He said as he took another large gulp of his drink. He cleared his throat and sighed.

  "I mean. That's what I thought. But I've been looking over my phone a bit. You know. Just...simple stuff. Then, you know I looked at you and I said "Oh...man. He just has one of those faces. One of those ones chiseled right from history." He said as he took out his phone and went to the "Downloads" folder and selected the picture of Malus that he had taken. "I mean, that picture is... O-L-D Old. Found it online. From over a hundred years ago though... couldn't possibly be you." He said as he looked to Malus with one of those faces where he was very seriously staring him down. He didn't take his eyes away he just drank from his drink.

  "Be a bad boy. Let this slip a little, make him wonder who you are. Make him wonder what you know. He's manipulative, he doesn't even realize it, but you've got something right here...that will help you earn a fair shot." He said as he killed the drink in his hand, finishing it very quickly and letting out a hiss as it burned just the right amount. He looked to Malus and smiled. "Now if you'll excuse me... I gotta confession to make." He said as he stepped away from Malus and moved back to the table with Luke and Pat and old buddy.

  "Well, Hi Lukas with a k and Pat with a P." The guy said, slightly taken off guard by Luke's sudden burst of speaking. He was trying to follow Luke's words and process everything that was happening, including the comment about the pain in the ass, which made him smile rather wide, especially after seeing Pat's spittake of it. Luke made the comment about seeing some sick skills, which made the young man nod with a bit of pride, but then found himself awkwardly pinned down at the comment of flexibility and the jawline.

  "You're just a tad smashed bro."  He said as he smiled and looked over to Pat, who affirmed that they were good moves, Pat suddenly asking what his poison was. He cleared his throat and scratched the back of his head. "Oh uh, Long Island Iced-Tea tends to be-" He said before realizing what Pat was doing. He stammered to try and stop him but it was too late. He already declared that the drinks were on him. He sighed and nodded with a slightly amusing smirk.

  "Eh...Thanks? Name's Ash. Matt's pain in the ass before ya." He said as he nodded and took the drink, letting out a nice and refreshed sigh. He jumped when he suddenly felt something pull on him, he jumped and looked back to see Matt pulling on his collar.

 "Shirts on inside-out." He stated before he cleared his throat and looked to Luke and Pat. "I gotta talk to you guys...Bad." Matt said before looking to Luke and then Pat. Ash suddenly had a worried look on is face before clearing his throat and interjecting.  

 "Actually Matty, I was just gonna take Pat and we were gonna have a couple drinks. If, he's up for it of course. I do owe him after all." He said rather affirmed and nodding at Matt before looking to Pat. Matt was going to say something but then stopped and looked to Luke.

  "Fine. One at a time then." He sighed, trying to take Drifter with him before Skyler, Matt's normally nice expression and attitude burning away for a moment as he scoffed, shaking his head. "H-hey I'm sure it's important but can it wait 5 minutes. PLEASE? I'm seriously trying to salvage my life. You can have him back right quick.. Just look for him to punch me." He said as he still urged Lukas to follow him.

Re: We Don't Talk Anymore (Starring: Malus, Skyler, Drifter, Withdrawl, and Humanity)

The sudden compliments to his appearance took Malus by surprise. Especially coming from Matthew. This man did not seem like the kind to bat this way, despite the way he acted around of his friends, nor his outfit choices. Blinking a bit, Malus would just feel his heart wrench when Matthew's trailed off words turned into something entirely different. The idea that Pat didn't really like Malus, but only accepted the company due to just... sheer loneliness made him sad.

But, was he also doing that to Pat? Was Malus just using Pat for his own personal gain? Even if it were a fling. But, maybe not. Maybe he wasn't feeling all these things just because he felt lonely, but because he did actually like Pat. Time would have to tell.

As Matthew went on, Malus was at a loss for words. He was processing everything, his lips pressed together in a thin, firm line. He would swallowed, relaxing his face as he finally let out a sigh of annoyance.

"I like to think I am just-" but he was cut off when Matthew brought up a photograph of a painting of him. A painting. How... did he find that? What the hell? Looking at the picture, Malus became ghost pale, his olive skin as white as a sheet at this point in time.

Matthew would finish his speech, his drink, and then excuse himself. Scratching the back of his head, Malus sighed. He loosened his collar, unbuttoning the top of his shirt two times, revealing his toned chest. Tousling his own hair, Malus would just order another drink and wait by the bar, observing for the rest of the evening.

"Matt was right... I need to stop acting like a whiny little bitch! That's who I use to be, following everyone like a puppy! Not any more. I am... Malus Maximillion Annavianna-Takeiro. I'm hundreds of years old, and I'm letting some human make me a little bitch. Not any more. I just need to.. wait for the right moment." thinking to himself, he would sip his bourbon, the rich flavor enveloping his mouth as he drank.

Skyler was cut off by Matthew, saying he needed a moment with Luke before she talked to him. Frustration over came her, and she realized she would need to just handle this herself.

"Sure. I'll be over here." she said, offering a very fake smile, but it looked as genuine as they come. And that was part of her training.

Turning from the mass of people, Skyler headed for the stairs that would lead to the upper level, and hopefully to the security room. There had to be something going on in there. As she approached the stairs, a big bouncer was in her way. Scoffing in annoyance, she sauntered up to him after composing herself.

She adjusted her bosom, and pushed her hair from it's sloppy placement across her forehead.

"Oh, sugar. I think I lost my way to the bathroom." southern belle spilled passed her pouting lips as the bouncer cut his eyes to her. She had him.

He would begin to open his mouth to speak, but she would move forward, her hand jamming up and into his throat, knocking him unconscious in one swift motion.

"Sorry, sweetheart." stepping over him, she grabbed his set of keys and taser for extra weapons. Walking up the stairs, small flood lights would illuminate each step so she could see where to put her feet, but other than that, there was almost no light. Approaching the security door, she noticed it was left ajar. Stepping inside, she found no one in the room. Blood was spattered on the cameras, and it looked as if a struggle had went down in here.

"God. Damn. It. Aiva, I need you to be my eyes. I'm going to short circuit a few of the cameras to heat up and force the camera lenses to shatter so we can see. It won't be the best picture, but we need eyes on this club." walking to the command board after shutting and locking the door behind of her, to ensure no one would sneak up on her, she started to work. Her fingers moved over the keyboard rapidly, sending string of code after code, making the small LED bulbs to short circuit in each camera. The lens on each security camera would then start to break, one by one.

Luckily for Skyler, the loud music, massive crowd, and plethora of lights would distract from a few small security cameras seemingly breaking.

"I'm IN!" Aiva said, now giving Skyler a live feed of the club, uninterrupted.
