CLOSED Eat the Rich [Isaac]

Post by Nightshade on April 20th 2018, 2:20 am

Coraline stared up at the ceiling of the abandoned office she and her companion had been dumped in, mentally going over the series of events and decisions that led up to this moment. Well first, she decided to take a walk after grading all the essays from the class she was TA’ing for. You know, since she couldn’t sleep anymore and meditation just wasn’t cutting it recently.

Anyways. During said walk, she decided to take a shortcut through an alley, where she was greeted with a man in a fancy suit being knocked out and kidnapped. So. Like the idiot she was, she tried to intervene. Normally, it would have gone all hunky dory since it was nighttime in a dark alley, except of course, one of the kidnappers was a metahuman whose ability amounted to generating very bright flashes of light. Her weakness. Especially since, like an ABSOLUTE idiot, she left her sunglasses at home.

While she doubled over in pain, the assholes apparently decided that it was better to ‘minimize’ witnesses and take her as well. And that’s how Coraline found herself where she was now. Trussed up with what was probably a rich dude that they were going to ransom off, while she was going to be killed or whatever. If only.

“So… you think you could broker an agreement to get me out of here too? Like, looking at that suit, you probably have enough money. No big deal if you can’t but it’d make my life a lot easier.” She said with a resigned tone as she squinted at Isaac (curse bright fluorescent lights). Using her powers now would be a bitch since they nabbed her wallet, phone, and id’s. They knew who she was and killing them was not an option thank you very much. Maybe she’d just let them mangle her body and one they dumped her in a ditch somewhere, she could make her way home from there. Healing would be a bitch but hey, what can you do.

Isaac wasn't one for making deals in person, he was one who usually did so via a phone/video call. There were times, of course, that required meeting in person, but always in an office or some dignified location, not some smelly back alley. However, being an adult meant sometimes you would have to do things you didn't want to, this was one of those times. Isaac had a plan in motion and this was a key part in it. He was meeting a local gang leader and setting up a deal to provide him and his group some weapons, they were nothing but thugs, but they had a use, at least for Isaac. He would provide them with "top tier" weaponry and they would provide him with a small payment as well as owing him a favor in the future. A favor he'd call upon very soon. Slowly things were falling into place.

At least...they were supposed to. He had begun to make the deal, though, something seemed off about the people he was making the deal with. He had expected to be meeting with the leader, that's the kind of respect he deserved, but instead he was meeting with a lower ranking member. Oh...how he wanted to strangle these two, but he had to hold back in order to keep his plan in motion. He had to smile through it and make the deal, but...before he knew it, he was knocked out cold. Something he hadn't expected had grabbed his attention for a moment, a woman at the end of the alleyway. If it hadn't been for her Isaac was sure he would've been able to avoid this situation. It was aggravating to have to deal with so many commoners today.

When he had awoken he had found himself in an unknown room with that woman who had been the one had caught Isaac off guard. Worst of all, he was tied up with her. Disgusting. Even worse! She was talking to him...HER! Of all people. What gave her the right to? He didn't talk to her, he didn't address her. She didn't know her place. He let out a breath, he was more upset about who he was stuck with more than he was being kidnapped. "And why would I do that?" Isaac asked, sneering at the woman. "Who are you? You're the one who got me caught in this situation, why would I help you?" He looked around at the room and shook his head. It wasn't good. There didn't seem to be anyway out. At least they left him with his clothes and his shoes. They had taken his weapon and wallet though. It didn't look good. They didn't want him dead at least, they would've killed him at the beginning so...there was that. Though, whatever they wanted Isaac for he didn't want to find out.

He let out a breath. If he did want out of here, he may have to work with this nobody. "Listen. Sorry. For what I said." He was lying of course. He wasn't sorry in the slightest, but if he wanted to get out of here he'd need her to at least trust him. "This is just a stressful situation. We need to get out of here. I don't think they want to broker a deal, if they did they would've talked to you when you woke up and they wouldn't have brought us here. We'll probably be tortured. So, I would like to try and think of some way out of this. Any ideas? Are your binds not tight or do you have some sort of plan that you've been working on? If you give me a minute I'll think of something if you don't have anything." Isaac didn't expect her to have anything, but sometimes lesser people could surprise you. They could have moments of competence. That's why they were useful, that's why they existed, so they could be useful to people like Isaac. Hopefully she could be useful, he'd have to wait and see and if not...well, he'd have to figure out some way out of here on his own. Though, it wasn't looking like there was a lot of options. This would require some extra thought.

Damn. That was some high level disdain rolling off this man. Maybe she should have spoken with a bit more tact but look, it’s not like he was the only one having a bad day here. Still, blaming her? That was a bit of a stretch. It’s not like she knocked him over the head personally. Heck, she had arrived in the tail end of the altercation.

“Hey I shouldn’t even be here. I’m stuck in this mess cause I was trying to help you.” Coraline shot back, frowning in annoyance. With that she turned away from the asshole, mulling over her options since somebody didn’t want to provide anything productive to this mess of a circle jerk. Honestly, the pretending to die plan was looking better and better. Theoretically if she started raising a fuss, it’d get her home pretty fast. Right as she decided on that course of action though, seems the mystery man had a change of heart that definitely had no ulterior motive because he’s right. This was a stressful situation.

“Don’t worry about it! I’m sure we can get out of this if we work together!”
She said with a guileless grin. “And lemme see… I think I can get out of this if I dislocate my thumbs.” With a small pop, she pushed her thumbs out of their socket, sighing in relief when her hands slipped out with relative ease. With another two pops, her thumbs went right back into their sockets. She shot Isaac another grin, wriggling the fingers of her now free hands at him cheerfully. In her happiness, she forgot to show any signs of pain that a normal human would be experiencing.

“Ta da!!! Now lemme get out of the rest of this mess and I’ll untie you.”
With that, she set to work undoing both their bonds.

Isaac could not be more displeased with who he was tied up with. That attitude of hers was repulsive. If she actually managed to get him out of here, though, he'd let her go. She'd prove to have worth that way and it was a waste to kill things with some worth. Even the most lowly rat had a use, though, that doesn't mean you want to work with it. Sometimes you just had to. Hopefully they wouldn't be here long. He wasn't sure how long he could put up with her for. To be honest, he wasn't sure how he even managed to make a comeback from his comment. There was a strong...very very strong urge to continue on with his previous rant. The desire to stay alive drove a man to do crazy things, he supposed.

At the sound of her thumbs popping Isaac could feel his spine shiver. That was....truly disgusting. She was a terrible creature. But at least she was a creature who got results. He really didn't need to see her pop them back in and then wriggle them at him. That was very unseemly. Once his bonds were finally were undone he quickly stood, fought the urge to slap her, and adjusted his tie which had been disrupted during their capture. He did have to look his best. He looked around the room they were in, keeping a sharp glance. "So...any idea where we are, girl?" He looked back to her, an unimpressed look in his eyes. After a moment, not waiting for her to reply, he turned and started towards the door at the other side of the room. He went to go put his hand on the knob, but stopped himself. Instead, gently, he pressed his ear against the door, trying to hear if there was someone or something out there. The last thing they needed was for their cover to be blown by seeing a knob rattling. Chances were it was locked.

He listened for a few moments, holding a finger up to the girl indicating he wanted silence so he could hear. His eyes then widened and he pulled away from the door. He made quiet hurried dash over to the girl and he started in a low tone. "Someone is coming down the hall...or whatever is outside, they'll be here any second. I don't know if they're coming or not, but we need to be ready." He looked over his shoulder at the door, but luckily the person wasn't there yet. He looked back to the girl with a sort of desperation. He wasn't scared, but he wanted to make sure they were on the same page in case she would try something stupid that got them both caught and recaptured. He really didn't want to be bound to this girl again. It was very...undesirable. "So, we could either hang on either side of the door, try to put out the lights quickly and hide, or...I don't know? Do you have any ideas or tricks or this all on me? Hurry. We don't have a lot of time to be discussing this."

Coraline was oblivious to Isaac’s inner struggle to not be an asshole as she quickly undid their bonds, stepping back to give the man space to compose himself in the form of straightening his appearance of all things. Were all rich people this weird? Signs pointed to yes, considering the ones she did know. Maybe it was due to the fact money shielded the upper class from as much judgement. She’d have to see if any studies had been done on this when she got back home.

Coraline was thrown out of her academic reverie at Isaac’s question. “Nope. They made sure to blindfold me before throwing me in there.” She said with a shrug, keeping out the fact that she honestly wished they had kept the blindfold on. Seriously, why did it have to be so bright in here? Granted, if she had said that out loud, she doubted the man would have even noticed, as he had turned around and walked away mid explanation. “I’m guessing it’s so— Oh shit.” She fell silent at his behest, eyes widening when he told her someone was coming.

“I like that idea.” She whispered, matching his urgency as she scanned around the room for a light switch. Unfortunately though, her visual search was heavily impeded by the need to squint. “Fuck there’s gotta be a light switch somewhere here.” She said before rubbing her eyes. She was about to just take the nearest object and break the lightbulbs herself. Of course, the light hurting her eyes wasn’t the only reason she had agreed to that plan so quickly. If as a last resort, she did have to use her powers… Well.

Useless. She was so utterly useless. If there was no light switch to begin with would she believe that it would be impossible to turn off the lights? He honestly was with the worst person for being kidnapped. A child could've at least made for a suitable distraction or could be thrown with little effort so he could make a run for it. But no, she was an adult who didn't even know how to break a bulb. He quickly took of his jacket, got on the chair where they were tied to, wrapped the jacket around his hand and squeezed the bulb. After a moment or so, the bulb popped, a shard of glass went through his jacket and cut his hand, but it was out and they were in darkness. He quickly jumped back off of the chair and left his jacket there, covered in glass and stained slightly with some blood. He held is hand under his armpit and went to the other side of the door, careful not to bump into her.

Just as he got the to corner, hopefully the girl would also be in position, the door swung upon and a dim light shone from hallway. The silhouette of a tall burly man reflected onto the floor. He took a step into the room, a confused expression on his face as to why the lights had been turned off. He could have sworn the light was left on to prevent the Meta-Girl from using her powers and it was a fresh bulb too so there was no chance of it going out. This wasn't good at all.

Isaac looked over to Coraline, hoping she'd make the first move. His hand was a bit injured after all and would prefer not to do all the work. He waited, shifting his gaze between the man and Coraline.
