    Where better for the city's most extraordinary to gather than the top of the world? Overhead, for those that can see, the rivers of fire pulse and flow. They meet overhead and crash like ocean waves on breakers before continuing to arc out until they're just threads of light in the distance. Others can feel them. They're the steady pull of a slow tidal current or speaker booming nearby.

    And somehow even that eventually becomes passé.

    But the people never do. Some with antler horns, others arriving in a murder of crows that coalesce, some through shimmering holes to elsewhere. The energy is in the air; palpable, and not just from the ley lines. From the freedom.

    Kaze sensed...something. Special. He trusted his intuition, and what he was feeling was that he needed to prepare appropriately for going in, appropriately meaning eyes wide open, and dressed to kill.

    Kaze rents a tux, his feelings telling him that he doesn't want to wear anything of his own.

    He makes his way to the top of the city, almost like he's entering a place that isn't there all the time, like Brigadoon or something.

    Kaze's Aura is Transformed to appear like that of a perfectly mundane Sleeper. His protective spells are Cloaked (as linked in the signature). He doesn't have his phone or any personal items from his normal life. He bought or rented everything that he's got on him right before coming.

    Walking the city had become commonplace for her by know, it was a jungle she were not used to but months of walking around both with a destination in mind and aimlessly had started to pay off and the city were not as foreign anymore. It was no longer that hard to find her way still something had been drawing her in this night, a sensation of an area that needed to be seen and visited. Having been out to get a blue rose for some more in depth studies of it for her own agendas, holding it with a chuckle who knows maybe it's language spoke ever stronger than she knew.

    A quick movements of her finger over her eyes and a green light for those select few who could see the supernal confirmed her belief that she needed to head there.
    Pulse of the living world


    Walking in with her usual calm demeanor, maybe not perfectly dressed for a fine party but dresses were not her style and she could move well in these clothes. Riding the elevator to the top floor and heading out, carefully monitoring the scene, not needing much time before seeing the one person that she constantly seemed to run into nowadays. A soft chuckle before speaking up.
    "The winds of chance seems to enjoy guiding us to the same places Superboy." Not being sure what name to refer to him by, Chase were a standard but perhaps he didn't want to let that slip here.

    Jennifer was feeling more confident in heading out, having been emboldened by the successful evening. It felt strange not texting Chase about it.
    She pulled out a recent buy - a dress that was a bit out of her black and green Florentine Code. That was an allure of Nexus, wearing something that pushed her boundaries a bit. She affixed her flesh-colored covering over her neck and collarbone and stoked her Obfuscate to allow the matching silk scarf she tied over the covering to conceal. The perfect silver flats that she could walk – and run – in complete the outfit. She brings a small silver clutch with her cards, her mini notebook and her touchup make up, and her burner phone. Her lips are coral pink, her make up a soft green to bring out the brown of her eyes.
    Jennifer strums her Vitae to blush before she walks a bit from the Necropolis, enters a hired car and strides towards Nexus. She walks in confidently, eager to experience her first evening in Nexus. The brunete glanced around the room, trying to take it all in.

    What she had not expected to see was Chase and Skye. She strides towards the two.

    "Call me, Chris." Kaze says to Skye. It felt right, and he probably isn't going to meet anyone else here who knows him as 'Chase'. Well, probably. This doesn't seem like the right place to make ANY assumptions tho.

    "So...wow." Kaze says, gesturing around. He really needs to watch what he says. Or does. Or...just watch out.

    Shrugging a little.
    "If names will be needed so sure." Although she kind of liked calling him Superboy. "I am still now and always Skye."

    Spotting the new sudden entrance and seeing Jenna now that was a surprise but guess that explained why she were so secretive and had secrets she couldn't talk about. Feeling a bit of not really knowing how to handle this situation, things weren't in a situation that she could easily handle right now and she was walking over.

    Taking a big gulp before looking away as she approaches, slightly blushing as she looks away.
    "You look beautiful tonight." Stretching out her hand with the blue rose towards her. "I read that this meant new beginnings and mystical allure." She had been studying the language of flowers for a bit whilst hoping on a second date and had now planned to make a wooden replica of a blue rose for next they would meet but evidently fate had other wishes for their next meeting. And truth be told she were still drawn to her, she had been her first date and would always be a fond memory for her.

    She rode the elevator up alone this time. But there was no lessening of confidence, of taking up anything less than the entirety of the small vertically moving room with her presence. She was Twist and even if she ached every moment of every day for their presence again, it was not becuase they had made her who she was.

    So yes, she missed having him at her side as the chime sounded and the doors started their slow open. But that did not mean she was incapable of going alone.

    Settling her beast securely, she called upon her blood. This was not court (as evidenced by her attire) but still she knew there would be at least a small number of the unnamed mass who would spike the desire to rip and rend.

    Stepping out onto the rooftop of Nexus, she paused to take in the evening's offerings before making her way toward the bar and the first drink of the evening.

    Quinn had been such a dull girl lately. All work and no play had finally reached an all time high. She needed a break from the starving games also. You can only spend so much time in a cage before you start to get grumpy about life after death. Even if it meant a mini break from her dear covenant mate, which was certainly a crappy sacrifice but at this point she needed to let her hair down. He made it clear he didn’t want to do that, so what? She would go back to pining over someone she couldn’t have after tonight. Time to put that bag of bricks down.

    Quinn was wearing a high collar long sleeve shirt in a goldenrod color, the cloth gathering at her right shoulder giving the shirt interesting lines. With her hair pulled up, she showed off her elegant neck with a pair of dangling gold circles that got smaller as the earrings came almost to her shoulder. Long, showy. Her eye makeup is dark and dramatic. Her lips glossed in a nude shade. She chose to wear a high waisted black leather skirt, with gold buttons on each side of her going down, drawing the eye to the way her waist gave away to the curves of her hips. Her legs were bare, and she wore a pair of peep toe gold sandals on her feet.

    A scan of the area and Quinn’s gaze fell on Jennifer, and her smile stepped up a notch. She weaved her way through the crowd until she came into her view. She grinned a bit, taking in her outfit. Looks like she wasn’t the only one up for something a little scandalous tonight. An eye flick towards Skye and the flower. Oh ho ho ho! This is toooo goood. “Wow….you work fast.” quipped Quinn, grinning wickedly at Jennifer. Her wide expressive eyes were glittering with amusement. She then turned that smile on Skye and Kaze. “I’m Quinn, it’s nice to meet you both.” Looking back to Jennifer to see what her reaction to the flower was gunna be.

    This was a surprise. Jennifer stares at Kaze for a beat, trying to connect what he's shared with something other.

    “You took time to research?"
    Jennifer accepted the flower from Skye with a friendly smile. That was something special to her academic soul. Jennifer's speech crawls like a serpent over dead or dying leaves. “Skye, I am so glad to be your friend. Thank you.”

    Jennifer smiled to Chase, sliding closer beside him for one of the side hugs of his.
    “And I was thinking it was strange to not tell you I was coming out here, tonight.” She remarks to him.
    Jennifer glances between Skye and Kaze.
    “It seems like we all have been …” Concealing made it seem naughty, or purposely deceitful.
    “-something.”

    Quinn Durant walks up and Jennifer gives the Mekhet a friendly smile. “Good evening. Its good to see you, tonight.” She says sincerely. Quinn mentions the flower from Skye and Jennifer looks down at it, bringing it to her nose. It was so thoughtful. She gives Skye a friendly smile.
    In Court, she would immediately provide introductions to Quinn. Yet here… were there other aliases that they went by? Jennifer glances to meet Kaze’s eyes, curious.

    Kaze smiles at Skye's declaration of always and every being 'just Skye'. It's not a full chuckle though--he doesn't quite feel at ease enough for that here; this is the kind of place and 'people' that makes the small hairs at the back of your neck stand up.


    Kaze is shocked to see Jennifer. He feels completely at ease with her. It feels completely bizarro world for her to be here. And then Skye moves up to give her a flower, without missing a beat. Skye even has done research, like, the flower 'means something'. First time in a while he's been taken by surprise and lost the initiative. In another setting, that meant getting seriously hurt or killed. Mabye not just another setting tho, he can't shake the feeling.


    But yeah, Jenna. Wow. What does this mean?


    It doesn't matter, it's Jenna. Well, sure it matters, but not as far as his trust towards her, his feeling that he knows her, even if he hardly knows anything about her, like, way less than he even thought.


    Kaze receives her embrace, her side hug as a lifeline and an anchor, not like a romantic or in that moment even a friendly thing. "Um. Yeah. Wow. Speechless. Sort of, I mean...I'm talking, and words are coming out, but...um...call me, 'Chris'?" He manages to say to Jenna, his physical reaction saying a lot more, like how he's really glad to see her, and really grateful that no matter what she is, she is still 'Jenna' to him.


    Twist enters, and Kaze stares. He tries not too, but she's obviously not...right. And still amazingly beautiful, and even fragile, yet...the whole uber predator danger thing is screaming in his head. He makes himself stop staring, but can't help making sure to keep track of where she is in his peripheral vision.


    Quinn Durant enters, and she has the same, not right (not Blush) quality as Twist. Not quite as scary, but predator vibe, totally and definitely not...human? He's seen things and done things, but...the people he deals with the ones he has conversations with are human. Not 'just' human, but basically still human. This is a whole different vibe.


    Kaze listens, forcing himself to smile and nod slightly as he involuntarily scans for threats--which is kind of a joke since the threats are standing. right. there.--as Quinn Durant seems to know...Jenna?


    And now...she's talking. "Um...hi, Quinn. Call me, 'Chris'." Kaze manages. Smooth.


    Awww. Jenna seems unrattled by this, and still her thoughtful self. Skye too. He needs to chill and get it together.


    "Oh. Yeah...'work' is kind of a code, mostly, you know? You too I guess?" He asks Jenna. He doesn't apologize for not sharing secrets. Kind of the opposite, he's still not spilling the beans. But...yeah, obviously this is next level. "It's not just my idea though, you know? It's...complicated, and not something I can...go into detail about...I honestly don't know how much is good to tell except...everything I did say was true." Except his name. He never gave up his True Name. That's not an option.
