City Streets / Re: A Fresh Start
« on: Today at 11:59:46 AM »
It was far from the first time that Mitri had sung in front of anyone. Over the years, he had had multiple careers. Every forty odd years or so, he let himself indulge his inner diva and entertain others as a singer either in a band or one his own. He had always been careful to not let them as a band or himself on his own to get too popular. For popularity drew attention, both good and bad. Still this didn't stop him from having fun both then and now. Also the look on Aislin's face made it all worth it.

As when the song's last notes drifted off, he gave a gallant bow and then grinned over at her. His eyes then lit up as he heard the piano introduction of the song that she had next selected play. "Hell yeah, I do." he replied delightedly, watching as she joined him standing.

"Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand. And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand." he sang. He was starting to sway in tune to the notes as he once more sought out her gaze.

The sound of her laughter was like music to his ears. It widened the smile that never seemed to stop when he was around her. So when she half protested Mitri offered her a small playful wink in return and said, "Next one is your choice and we'll do it properly." This was okay. He would entertain Aislin this time around and the next song they could truly have a duet.

His eyes flicked once to the screen as the next stanza came on before shifting back to Aislin.

"Life can be easy. It's not always swell
Don't tell me truth hurts, little girl.'Cause it hurts like hell."

At this part of the song, he pantomimed being shot in the heart with cupid's arrow. Yes, he knew he was being ridiculous, but the look on Ash's face made it all worth it. And he kept it up right until the last note played.

Mitri offered her a small playful grin in return as she laid back against the seat. He had noticed how much this song had taken out of her. As a result he already was planning on giving her enough to recuperate. If he had let himself truly let go, he could have run circles around her given their race differences, but he didn't want to do this. He wanted to be patient and to just enjoy her company. Also this meant he could entertain Aislin at the same time.

"That is cool with me. I'll do all the dancing for both of us this round. And who knows I might be able to get you to join in." he said warmly as he picked up the tablet so that they could choose their next song. He then brightened at her question. "I think that after those two songs. I'm feeling a little Bowie." he said. For a second or two as he glanced at the screen, he was tempted to chose 'Under Pressure' but instead he choose 'Underground' instead. It was a subtle nod to his heritage but also honoring a damned good singer.

As the song began, he adopted a Bowie-esque stance as he sang into the mike,

"No one can blame you for walking away, but too much rejection, uh-huh.
No love injection, nothing."

This time he pantomiming walking away with his index and middle fingers. Then giving mock gave himself a shot in the arm with said appendages.

Mitri tried to hold Aislin's gaze as he sang. Once the song had started, it was easy to adopt the upbeat 80's swagger that was necessary for it. Also what helped was the very delightful grin on her face as he strut his stuff. It made him want to see how else he could make her react. For she was both beautiful on the outside and the right amount of sweetly kooky on the inside that he found irresistible.

He brightened at the sound of Aislin's laughter and her playful pose. He then proceeded pantomime taking multiple pictures of her good side. It was reminiscent of the way a professional photographer would.

"If the words unspoken, get stuck in your throat. Send a treasure, token token. Write it on a pound note, pound note."

He then stepped back at the next lyric as he sang and mimed writing a note on his hand as the song continued. For he wanted to give her a show to remember. His species did have a certain knack for song but it was more than that. He wanted to keep seeing her smile. Then when the song ended, he bowed and then grinned. "Yes you are, my lady. For I'd would love to see your skills." he replied with a playful wink.

Mitri then moved to once more take seat at the booth so that he could properly watch her perform. His lips then twitched with amusement at her choice of song. It was awesome and was a great start. It didn't matter to him that her singing wasn't perfect when she began. What mattered was her. Mitri loved how adorable she was as she gained more and more confidence in performance. It drew him in and he couldn't help but smile. When Aislin did the moonwalk and then the air-sax, he laughed and clapped.

As the song finished, he rose to his feet and started clapping harder. "That was awesome, Ash!" he congratulated happily.

"Now shall we do one together?" he asked.

Mitri couldn't help but happily grin back as he padded over towards the bench and set down his backpack. "Definitely." he agreed softly.

He then easily accepted the second microphone he went to peer over the song selection. Now to decide...hmm he mused to himself as he scrolled through what was there with his right index finger. Then his eyes lit up as he stumbled across the perfect one to start off their night. It was Adam Ant's 'Goody Two Shoes.' Before this he had been half tempted to go for Frank Sinatra's 'Fly me to the moon, but it was too romantic to start them off with. What seemed to fit the moment was something light hearted and fun. So he choose this instead.

As the familiar opening began to play, he began to sing into the mike,

"With the heartbreak open, so much you can't hide. Put on a little makeup, makeup. Make sure they get your good side, good side."

Mitri's voice was a clear pleasant sounding baritone, but what helped to sell the song was the playful look in his eyes. He also decided to jazz it up and pantomime someone taking a picture of Aislin with his fingers to coincide with the lyric.

When hunter met emerald, Arutha's heart slowly lifted back up as he felt Naoise's love through their bond. It was like being wrapped in a soft warm blanket and being held close. A gentle smile curved his lips at his beloved's reassuring purrs as he kept petting him. His fingers tenderly tried to move from the top of his head to part of his right fury cheek. Naoise was right. For all his fears and the terrible things they had witnessed that night, there were many good things about it. They had each other and Naoise was still here unharmed. Also the last barriers about how they truly felt about each other were down and they could talk about this freely.

So even though his love couldn't properly hug him yet due to his collar, Arutha still soaked up the care and continued his gentle petting as Naoise crawled into his lap. At his answer, his eyes widened as he let out a small gasp of surprise as he guessed at which one it might have been. Now this he hadn't expected. "Holy shit." he breathed. Though before his mind could wander too far back down that terrible path down memory lane, Naoise both distracted as well as comforted him with his purrs and rubbing. For it helped draw him out of that dark place and even made him smile a little .

"Thank you." he gratefully whispered on a private mental channel between them.

"If she is, I think she might be more inclined to help us. For she has seen the threat first hand." Kevla said thoughtfully. "So here's hoping." she added, offering her brother and Naoise a small but bright smile. "We should all probably try to crash at least a little bit before morning. So we can try to meet Siobhan early if we can. Are you guys going to be alright?" she asked. The shadows that had appeared in her twin's eyes had not escaped her.

Arutha couldn't help but press his face slightly against Naoise's fingers. He was trying to soak in a much of his touch as he could. He didn't want this to end, but the dream's magic could only hold on for so long due his his inexperience. So he was going to savor what he could.

"You're right, Kit. It's just so wonderful and yet so frustrating at the same time. I want to be stronger so that I can free you faster. And yet when you touch me like this, I can't help crave more and wish that this could go on." he whispered honestly just before he was kissed again. Arutha began to respond as he felt himself begin to melt back into it. Naoise's kisses always seemed to have this effect on as he reached up a hand to try to touch those silken locks again.

Though before things could continue, he felt something hideously dark on the edge of his awareness. It was like whatever it was dripping with evil. He barely caught Naoise's warning just before he found himself snapping back into reality with a jolt. His hunter green eyes were wide with apprehension as he gazed around him, looking for Naoise. Just what the hell was going on?

Mitri nodded slightly when his offer almost seemed like it caught her of guard. For a second it made him wonder as to who she normally hung out with. For in his mind people who were friends or not should take turns or at least split fees when going out. It was fair and felt right. Still when she accepted, his happy smile renewed itself just before his card was returned. He then slipped it back in his wallet which went right back in his pocket.

At her excited question, his smile turned into that of a mirroring grin. Though before he could answer, his companion was already rushing to get to their room. So instead of speaking again, he sped up in order to catch up to her with an amused look. It would seem like he wasn't the only one really looking forwards to this. It wasn't like he could blame her though. For there was just something about just letting it all go in a song without fear of recriminations.

So with a bounce in his step, he entered the room after Aislin did and instantly his eyes widened. Holy Cow! He hadn't expected to see something like this. In his mind, he had expected something more plain like some of the ones he had been to before.

"Wow, is right. I didn't think that neon could work quite like this but the overall effect is like a cool space trip." he said brightly, looking over at her as he stepped further in to explore their surroundings. "So now of course I'm feeling adding like a few songs about it to our playlist. What do you think?

Mitri inclined his head as he watched the clerk plug away their order into their computer. From the way the system was described, it was pretty much like others he had used before. When Aislin looked back at him, he nodded and told the clerk with a small polite smile, "No thank you. I think that we are good."

When Aislin began to pull out her card, he shook his head and pulled out how own from his back pocket. Even though he didn't have alot of money left, he had just enough for this. "No, my treat, Ash." he said softly, "You got dinner. Now it is my turn."

The only other time that Arutha had heard Siobhan's name was when Psych had mentioned it earlier back at the library. He had no idea just who she was beyond that. As for now, he hadn't put two and two together that she was one of the magic users from the cemetery yet. At the time he hadn't caught any of their names, but then again he had had other things on his mind.

As the terrible memory of what happened at the cemetery crossed his mind, he moved his hand to try to tenderly pet the back of Naoise's ears. For he needed this simple touch to help calm his nerves. The sight of Naoise dying so horribly that he was not likely to forget anytime soon. The comforting sound of Naoise's purrs helped, but to touch his love cemented the fact that he was still okay. And he was so grateful to have this second chance with him. When Naoise lifted up his head, he looked down at him curiously. "Who do you think she is?" he of course had to ask.

Kevla thoughtfully frowned at the feline's question before answering. "Maybe, I wish that I could say for sure yes. I know that Psych wouldn't mind but Siobhan owns the building. So there is a chance that it could go either way." she said. "Still we have to try. Even though I didn't see any of the zombies, the city felt weird when I was coming back. I know that it sounds weird, but I'd feel safer being somewhere that is protected." she admitted as she gazed back at the others.

Naoise's husky sweet words made Arutha shiver with desire, his lips eagerly chasing his. A soft moan bubbled up from the back of his throat as their mouths connected again. His body was on fire. And he ached for more even though he knew that they had only so much time. For the dream wouldn't last, but god how he wanted it to. The gorgeous man above him was driving him crazy, but it was more than just a physical need. Naoise's tenderly tragic spirit and keen mind had drawn him in even before he had seen the beauty that was his body.

He lifted up a hand to try to stroke his hair when Naoise rested his brow against his as he breathed him in. Goodness this man had turned his world all topsy turvy and made him feel again. Arutha found himself wanting to utter those three little words that had had been so afraid to say. When his companion changed positions, he tangled his own legs with Naoise's own and curled close.

He hadn't noticed that the start of the deterioration of the dream until Naoise mentioned it. So he focused his senses on the edges of the dream and had to frown. He could feel the edges begin to unravel like threads in tapestry and the source seemed to be them. ", Kit. I do, but I don't know how to stop it." he said with no small amount of frustation, moving his hand to try and touch his cheek, "I don't want this to end."

Mitri offered Ash a small smile in return at her blush. It then grew slightly as Aislin accepted his arm. To be honest, he didn't want to test her persay. What he wanted was to know her better and let things happen naturally. If they became closer, he wouldn't mind in the slightest even with his history. If they stay just as friends he would be content with that too. Aislin's personality was bright and quite lively. It drew him in and had so far lightened what could have been a quite dark spot in his life. So he was grateful.

When they reached the door to the Karaoke joint, he gallantly opened the door for her and then let her take the lead down the stairs. For it felt right. His lips twitched with amusement when he saw that it wasn't a bar. He had guessed before that it wasn't and now to find out that he was right made him happy.

He then focused once more on Aislin as she greeted the clerk and then nodded at her question. "That sounds good to me." he agreed with a smile. It was tempting to go for longer in order to prolong the night. Though when he saw the rates on the board behind the clerk it was all he could afford.

Mitri couldn't help but echo her laughter as they came to a stop at the other side, hardly breaking a sweat. Given what he was and his own penchant for trouble, he had had more than a little experience at running. Still it worked out for the best, but it didn't matter at the moment. What mattered was her light continued touch on his arm and the musical sound of her laugh as she panted for breath.

He then brightened at her response as she released his arm. Mitri then had to chuckle as Aislin playfully jabbed him in the side. "Good, I'm glad. I tend to get a little self conscious when I'm around a pretty girl and the last thing I want to do is creep said girl out, Ash." he said with a small smile. "Now shall we go sing our hearts out?" he asked playfully offering Aislin his arm again.

Kevla blushed lightly at Naoise's mental reply, but she didn't deny it. Not did she didn't regret it in the slightest. In fact, she honestly couldn't wait to see Psych again and develop their relationship more. "Touche, Kit." she agreed with a small grin.

Arutha nodded a little as he sat close to Naoise on the floor. For he didn't feel like parting from him just yet given all that had happened that night. "Same here. It is more than a little bit creepy and a bad sign when it comes to our safety." he softly agreed as his fingers idly went to pet Naoise. "So in the morning, we should start our search for a more permanent home." he added.

Kevla inclined her head as she listened to them, her features turning more serious. "Maybe we can get a cabin of our own?" she suggested. Their own finances were not too bad. So they could afford at least this. "Or we might talk Siobhan and Psych to see if we can stay with her? I know that it is extra sudden, but we were already going to ask her for help." she pointed out before making a small face. For she remembered how reluctant Psych had been to mention it to his landlord, Siobhan, but her new boyfriend had still wanted to help, "Still this could backfire because Siobhan doesn't know about magic and other things yet."

She still didn't know that said person had had a crash course that night due to the zombie horde and the other gifted people that had been there.

Mitri's eyebrows shot up to his hairline in surprise at her panic. At first he had thought something had been wrong before in how he had acted, but now seeing her reaction he thought otherwise. Her distraction before now explained seemed to be another quirk to her personality. "Not alot, but you did seem like you were a little...out of it for a second there." he softly half agreed. "So I got a little concerned and I don't want to push you into doing you don't want." he added almost immediately making a face at the way he had just phrased it. "Damn...I didn't mean to make it sound quite that creepy, Ash."

Though before he could stress on more on his run away mouth, the stop light was changing. His gaze followed hers to the light and next he found himself arm in arm with her as they raced across the street. For Aislin's bid to snag his elbow had succeeded.
