    Patience

    Nosferatu Curse
    Something is...off about Patience’s face. Or is it her body as a whole, the way she carries herself? Something’s not quite right in any event, though you can never seem to say exactly what that may be. A subtle asymmetry of her features, an odd cock of the eye or twist of the lips? A barely detectable wrongness in the set of her limbs, in the rhythm of her walk? An unlocatable strangeness: it’s all the more disquieting because that ‘something’ can’t be named, tracked down, and assigned a place. In fact, it seems to change moment to moment, depending on where she is in the room and where you are in relation to her.

    After their conversation at court, Patience is eager to speak with Derek again. His Sire kept the Dark Faith and there is a chance the Shadow may follow suit. She is bound to pursue the opportunity.

    Patience does not like using phones. Especially cell phones. But she keeps one for just such an occasion.

    She dials the number listed on the card Derek gave her at the conclusion of their last chat.

    The line picks up and the familiar voice of Derek speaks.

    “Hello?”

    As he hasn’t yet received a call from this number, his voice is low and cautious.

    "It's Patience," the haunt replies simply.

    "I would like to meet."

    All business.

    There is a pause during which the sound of shifting movement can faintly be heard.

    “Alright. When and where would you like to meet?” he replies in a higher pitch and hint of nervousness.

    It seems Patience's curse can even affect the sound of her voice. The cadences of her speech are all wrong, off kilter.

    "There is an empty lot, next to the old Cemex site. On the river. It's at [address]."

    She pauses to let him write it down.

    "The lock on the gate is broken. Approach on foot. I'll be under the highway. Meet me there on [date] at [time]."

    Another pause, in case Derek has any other questions.

    Happy to start the thread whenever you're ready!

    There is the sound of fingers hitting a keyboard and a short pause.

    “Understood. I’ll be there.”

    Ready as ever!

    "Good." The line goes dead.

    I'll start it shortly!
