Haunt Meeting

    The site of the Nosferatu meeting is a motel: a two-tier sprawl spread over a cracked asphalt lot, bare but for a couple of sex-workers catching a short break. The main building is painted a stale yellow colour made even uglier by the dingy light shining down on the parking lot.

    Anton Flores stands against a ground level door, casually dressed as he looks out for Dirge, confident that his curse will lead her in his direction. He's booked the room above and the adjacent pair, too. As he waits, he pushes a disquieting pulse out from within, keeping the trickle of illicit trade on edge.

    Brenn plodded along the alleys, occasionally stopping when she emerged on a street to check her written directions. Sure it was a pain to look out for a ghoul, especially one not quite playing with a full deck, but it was worth it considering the very small and yet very useful conveniences it could provide. Stowing the meticulously folded directions Kaylee had provided in a front pocket Brenn continued on down an alleyway, her feet guiding her across trash unseen in the dark. Eventually she emerged on the streets once more and the dingy sign of the Bridge Motel came into view. The note posted on the Elysium board had named the street side explicitly so that would make it easier to find, thankfully, and gave her a better idea of where to head. It was a bit ironic she thought, as she caught sight of the building proper, that the exterior of the haunts meeting place reflected their own appearances so well.

    Peering through the dingy hair obscuring her face, her eyes roved over the few prostitutes glancing around the parking lot shiftily and the lone man standing in the decrepit doorway of a room. Her Converse clad feet carried her over to the man; the burnt smell emanating from him and the much larger, snarling beast telling her plainly that she had found the meeting room, and likely the mysterious AF. Brenn stumbled back a step, cringing away from the man, fighting the maelstrom of her Beast before she hesitantly approached.


    “Hello, sir,” she offered in greeting, “you gave me quite a fright. I hope I am not late this night, but I am new to these streets and thus am not contrite. I assume the others are somewhere around this site? Oh, my name is Brenn Lawrence, by the way,” she finishes, proffering a hand with ink stained fingers.

    Dirge slowly approached the motel from the parking lot. Martha had been kind enough to accompany her all the way here after giving her the word about the posted notice for the nosferatu meeting. Dirge wasn't one to believe in the kindness of others, especially kindred.

    "Thank you for your kindness,"
    Dirge said simply to the woman who had traveled with her.

    It hadn't been long since her fight at court and she still felt them. Every active moment of her night was a reminder of the wrong that was done to her. How, that bitch from clan gangrel had declared her intent to kill her. However, Dirge was not certain if it was a calculated move on the clan as a whole or because it was out of some petty jealousy regarding any kinship her lover might feel for Dirge as a former covenant head of his.

    Or is it simpler than that, was she just out to kill on behalf of the Lance, dirge wondered to herself.

    While her mind mulled over these issues she also had to wonder just why someone new to the city had called forth a clan meeting. However, it wasn't long before she felt the presence of another beast in the distance and she slowly made her way in that direction.

    There can't be many haunts remaining. What makes this one think they have the right to call such a meeting? Just what is their game,
    she thought darkly to herself.

    The blind woman once again wore her tattered old clothing from the streets, and by her side was her ever-present companion Cerberus. She didn't really see the point in attempting to dress up for such a gathering. With her clan she didn't have to pretend to dress up to keep from shaming them in front of the city.

    Martha nods, uselessly, to Dirge...even bobs a small curtsey. Nothing too fancy though, this is a street. "Oh, ma'am!" she enthuses with sincerity, "You are very welcome! I stand ready to help you at your convenience, ma'am! I shall leave my mobile enable telephone on, so if you wish, simply let me know by a signal, and I shall meet you here at the appropriate time with a taxiometer cabriolet all arranged! I do hope your meeting goes well, ma'am!" she enthused.

    Martha will linger a short while, to ensure no one is stupid enough to attempt to attack Dirge...then proceed on with her work, waiting, in case Dirge wanted that cab...

    Anton deafens himself to the Beast's bloodlust, reciting the catechism in his mind as he accepts Bren's handed. If he notices the rhyme scheme, he doesn't show it.

    "Buenos Noches, Miss Lawrence. I call myself Anton Flores, of the Sanctified. Please, be seated, Flores motions to a couple of small, circular tables surrounded by mismatched chairs. "I see another arriving."

    Anton steps out to meet Dirge, watching Martha warily.

    "Good evening, Hierophant Dirge." Anton's manner is hurried. He doesn't appear to bear any ill will towards Dirge for putting him to sleep at court. "I've prepared a room. Follow me, won't you?"

    Brenn's grip is firm and, unconsciously, indicates great strength. She smiles, for the second time tonight, at Anton's slight accent. Ducking her head in a nod she enters the room, and surveys the tables and chairs, finally deciding to sit on the left, just as the Montagnard did long ago; not that she was necescarily sympathetic of thier views. She pondered, for the few seconds that Anton was out of the room, what the other Haunt's ofiliations would be.

    "Good Evening," she proclaimed risibly in greeting as Dirge and Anton entered back in. "Anton of the Sanctified, I would like to say, just so it is known, that although I don't want your beliefs to be vilified, I have a difference of opinion. But aside from that, what is this meeting about? I look forward to learning more about our clan in the Domain but I assume you have another topic in mind?"

    Anton had matched the handshake for cold pressure, urged by the Beast to establish dominance, feeling the dull ache along the bones in his hands as the sole reward his pride. His eyebrow raised at the stressed 'eve' in 'evening, but nothing was said.

    "Rest assured, Miss Lawrence, I don't believe I'd be so much as ash lost in the wind had I not learned to tolerate opinions different to my own."

    Anton closes the door and takes a seat. He excuses himself as he taps something into his phone before looking up.

    "My reason for calling this gathering is our clan's lack of a Priscus. Heathcliff Staley is no longer a part of the Sacramento domain and no longer our Priscus. I am also concerned for our clan's apparent lack of direction and unity. Our number has changed considerably since the last meeting I attended. These are the things I hoped to discuss tonight. I expect others to arrive. Until they do, perhaps we could introduce ourselves to one another?"

    Anton seemed to have a good head on his shoulder and spoke well and, despite his affiliation, she found she would like to call him a friend. She couldn't gauge much about the beautiful Nosferatu joining them in the room, as she hadn't spoken yet, but surprisingly Brenn didn't feel jealous of the other Kindred's looks. At least one of us can still turn heads, she found herself thinking.

    "That is a good suggestion Anton...you don't mind if I use your first name do you," she asked, sounding hopeful. "Well, I'm Brenn Lawrence, and I've been existing in this state for about two year. I arrived recently, as you know, coming from the Domain of Los Angeles. I've always been Unbound but I don't lay down when it comes to politics or religion, the nature of freedom being the primary concern to me," Brenn finished, waiting for someone else to speak.

    Mick suspected he would be a bit late, but the delay caused by his slow progress gave him time to quietly chill his innate nervousness. He was relatively new, a neonate indeed, and understanding how to handle a leadership convocation was not in his experiences. Why'd you send me down here Monica? Seriously...

    As he approached the motel, dressed in a plain shirt and slacks, he caught sight of an unexpected person. Just his luck, Keeper Villiers. "Ah, Keeper Villiers?" Mick called to her as he came closer, hands jammed in pockets, "Hello. It's a surprise to see you here. This is the meeting place, isn't it?"

    Anton turned to Brenn, nodding.

    "That would be appropriate here," Anton answered, sliding a cellphone into his suit jacket. He listened to Brenn patiently.

    "In my time, I've decided that the nature of freedom changes with our own natures, and continues to do so."

    Anton stands, tugging aside the curtain. He frowns as he peers out of the window. Why on earth had Dirge brought Martha Villiers along? She didn't seem to require her aid when she appeared at every other listed gathering. That she'd called on an outsider to escort her to a meeting of family just sent all the wrong messages.

    "Dirge?" Anton prompted the Acolyte to introduce herself to Brenn as he continued to watch Martha Villiers and an unknown man converse,
