Enoch

Well, I just wanted to spare you all the nerdy talk. It could get pretty rugged. Enoch plys his phone again.

text to Empy Can you ask among Oberon, Kodama, Azath, and Sapphire if they could bring down Steve and Sally to the house?

Kodama was about to say she didn't expect they'd lose anyone, but then she recalled all the people who lived upstairs. Cat, Dirk, Virtue and Daisy. Thaddeus and Theresa. The Company Ex-Pat Crew. Cat had said numerous times she got a little stir-crazy stuck out here in the base. Suddenly she wasn't confident at all that everyone would stick around. "We've got a pretty flexible group, and the core isn't going anywhere. It should be fine." She says after Gunther gets in his two cents, essentially echoing his sentiments.

Then her brother comes into frame and sneaks a face in. She has to force herself not to stick her tongue out in response. "Hiya Chase. Things are good, definitely can't complain thanks for asking. How about you? Mom and Dad told me someone finally let you off the bench for some reason."

There's a decided frown at Dirk's choice of drink, though she can't say it surprises her. She's never been much of a drinker, not because of the side effects, but largely because of the complete lack of them. It's a matter of taste for her, and most of that was just in bars of clubs trying to get information out of people while faking being drunk to throw them off, so even then she didn't pay too much attention. But she does know that "the special" isn't anything close to her taste. "Do I look Russian?" she asks, clearly rhetorically as no, she most certainly does not. Still she takes the pitcher and takes a drink herself, though she quickly sets it back down with a coughing fit. Just because it doesn't do anything once it's in her system doesn't make it any easier getting there.

"Why te hell would anyone drink tis? Other tan just to get drunk?" she asks through a grimace, finding the taste many shades of disagreeable to say the least. [color=darkslategray]"You may as well drink paint tinner! And no, I don't, not tat part,"[color] she answers in between attempts to take a breath. "Anyting my system recognizes as toxic, it kills, it's like a hyperactive immune system. Seems to work on fatigue poisons too, makes me stronger and tougher tan I look. I guess, I mean it's not like I've ever been to a doctor and written down 'ability to turn organic matter into dust' as a symptom. Droga, tis is nasty... Can I get a tequila sunrise? Someting to wash te taste of antifreeze out of my mouth?" she asks, looking up towards the ceiling as if that made a difference.

"So what about you? Any little... side effects of... whatever your ting is?" she asks.

Enoch
"Matt, I live in your head," Kali replies patiently. "You can't spare me any of that."
EmpyreanAzath says he would bring them down at his first opportunity, but he does not know where your house is. Oberon and Sapphire are occupied, and Kodama is speaking with her parents!


Kodama
"Guess they recognized I'm a slab of raw talent," the guy retorts. "Things are looking up. Grades aren't bad, ball's going well, team likes me. Whaddya think of the vampires? Pretty crazy, huh?"

Wither
"You drink for some other reason than to get drunk?" Dirk asks, taking your mostly-filled pitcher away from you and refilling his own.

"Tequila sunrise, coming right up!" the Empyrean chirps.

He chuckles wryly into his drink. "Oh, one or two," he replies at last. "Y'know, the flashbacks, the blackouts, the deep unsettling rage, and the fact that the voice in my head wants to devour my girlfriend and adopted nieces. But hey, so long as I eat lots of red meat, drink enough to drown a small country, and don't stub my toe, I've got it on lock." He takes another sip. "It's not so bad, though. Happier here than I've been since 'Nam, and I've been the same age since like 25."

Enoch

Enoch exhales in frustration as he reads the return text. Azath: Heyya, do you know anywhere in San Diego that's discreet to bring them to? I can meet you.

He looks to Kali. Well, if you insist on being seen with me, want to go up and pick us out a few days worth of clothes so at least we match and look good?

Enoch moves over to give Lee a hug. Take some time to think on what you guys want to do. No rush though. He turns to Violet.

"You know tere are some drinks tat actually taste good, right? Not tat though, tat's a hate crime," she answers with a grimace, taking the tequila while giving the pitcher of disgust an equally disgusted look. She takes a sip of her cocktail to cleanse the taste while she listens to him read off the list of bad things he's had to deal with when a question comes to mind, something she couldn't bring herself to admit has crossed her own mind over the last few days. "So... serious question, knowing tere's an afterlife, have you ever thought about just... ending te problem?" she asks, trying to put it as diplomatically as possible. "I mean if te afterlife is undeniably real, wat's te whole point of tis one?"

Enoch
"...I do know," Azath replies after a moment. "Is it an emergency or can it wait an hour?"

"Mmkay," Kali agrees, pecking you on the cheek. "And I'll bring some jewelry with us too." She moves off toward the stairs.

Violet leans in for a hug. "You be safe," she reminds. "You might be immortal but you're still my son."

Wither
"Spoken like someone who's never had to live off raw coffee beans," Dirk remarks, as if that wasn't most people.

He snorts. "Aren't you cheery? Been dead before... I think twice now, and that's just the last couple months. Didn't get a demon crammed inside me without some long-lasting effects on my immortal soul, apparently, and one of them is that Hell keeps throwing me back every time I come a-knocking. Not erryday they get one of their bruisers trojan horse'd onto Earth, thanks to the bastards the Company used to pay." He takes another long pull. "An' besides, I've gotta look after Vee, make sure she doesn't lose her mind or get grabbed again. You met Vee?"

Kodama snorts derisively when Chase calls himself a slab of raw talent, but she's grinning, and her parents are there so there isn't too much to say really. "Crazy isn't even the half of it." Kodama agrees. "Turns out of our co-workers is one. She's kooky enough that you might even guess it if you met her, but she's pretty friendly." She reveals, figuring she might as well give her parents something. Something they could use going forward in a vampire filled world.

Kodama
"Huh," is all Chase seems to have to say.

"What's she think of all of this?" your mom asks. "It must be hard coming out all at once. I'd guess a lot of people are really scared."

"Look I just found out about all tis a few days ago, sorry if I'm having a bit of an existential crisis or two," Natalia snorts back before taking another sip of her cocktail. "I don't know all te rules or how tings work. I told Loki he should write up a handbook or someting, don't tink he's gonna. And Vee? Met, no, just saw her running around with te... Daisy. I've kind of been laying low. But... I get tat. Being willing to go through Hell for someone you care about, tat is. Sometimes I feel like I have. Not literally, obviously but... I wonder sometimes if what Hell can do to people can really be worse tan what people on Earth do to each other. There, tat's two existential crises, I'm done now," she quickly interjects before downing the rest of the tequila.

Enoch

Enoch exhales in frustration as he reads the return text. Azath: No emergency man, an hour will do admirably. Let me know where so I can get there. He hugs Violet as well. I never plan on testing that immortality bit if I can help it, Mom.

He looks back to Lee, hands over a set of keys. Guys want to drop us off in the Phantom?

Wither
"Answer's yes," Dirk replies tersely. "Hell's worse. MUCH worse. I'd rather spend a month in 'Nam than another goddamned day down there." He takes a long drink, before changing the subject.

"Sho, you've gotten an eyeful of all the singles around here," he observes. "Seems like everyone's hooking up these days. Who's the hottest?" He grins lopsidedly. "I mean, clearly itsh me, but I'm a committed man sho y'll hafta do without."

Enoch
"Under the old stone bridge on the south side of the park on the east side of town," Azath answers.

"I thought you said you didn't want to die?" Lee teases. "I don't know if I could drive a Rolls without worrying about crashing it."

Enoch

Just a car, Dad. I mean, a wedding gift too, but just a car. Enoch grins. And I don't think you'd get it going fast enough to really hurt anything. He smiles. We leave soon enough we could take the kids for I-c-e-c-r-e-a-m on the way. And by kids I mean me, of course.

Natalia just laughs and shakes her head. "I have no idea, I haven't even thought about tat. Not even since coming here really, just..." she trails off with a sigh. It was the truth, she can honestly say she hadn't been looking. Such "normal" considerations weren't something she'd been able to think about for a long time. "When you can turn people into a desiccated husk wit a touch, it makes it a little hard to feel comfortable tinking about getting close to someone. I mean I can control it but... what if someting happens? How do you deal wit it?" she asks. It was a welcome change of subject, but an honest one, Natalia wondering how someone else with a lethal monster in them handles such things.

Classic eloquent Chase.

"She's excited about it as far as I can tell." Kodama answers. "I think she's got some connections or something because she didn't seem all that surprised."
