Venture / Re: Learning How Not To Die 101

Kieran's eyebrows lifted curiously at Jeanne's playful statement. "Accusations? And election? Color me intrigued. When you say districts, I gather that the city has been separated into these and are governed by an elected official similarly to a more human style of government. Though I would have to imagine that there are more than a few key differences. Like the races and rules governing them to begin with." he started to say, his keen mind absolutely fascinated by the possibilities.

At the mention of picking up current issues and subscribing, he nodded excitedly. "I would love to do both. This way I can catch up on all what is going on." he added, his voice brightening at the promise of learning something new. When Jeanne asked him what questions he had, he offered her a small happy grin. "Oh wow...I didn't expect this. So I guess I'll start with what is your earliest memory, Jeanne?" he asked softly leaning forwards slightly.

"I know that there many legends about vampires but what is the reality of it? Are you changed? Or born? What kind of abilities do you have?" he asked quickly. He then flushed a little at the speed of his questions, "I am sorry for bombarding you like this, but it is just so interesting."

Jeanne's continued stare easily made Kieran squirm. Though he did his best not to overly show it. For it felt like he was under a very keen microscope and if he said the wrong thing he could be erased. When she finally smiled even just a little, it lessened some of the pressure. Still there was no doubt in his mind of the seriousness of the situation he had found himself in.

He nodded slowly at her a matter of fact threat. "I understand, ma'am." he said solemnly. There was no freaking way that he was going to go back on his word. There was no question of this in Kieran's mind. And besides if he did, he would lose the only chance to know more about this world. Kieran then nodded once more at her next question. "Yes my current employer is a human publication. And no I didn't know until now that there were supernatural publications, but it makes sense. Honestly that idea of what kind of stories they likely must cover fascinates me." he said, his expression open and again keenly curious. His imagination was already coming up with possible ideas of said stories.

Mitri had to smile as she flushed again. Honestly she was quite adorable. He could only hope that maybe one day things would be different, but he couldn't expect it. Doing so would not be living. He had learned that lesson long ago. Still this didn't mean that he couldn't enjoy the little time he left with Aislin. He then offered her a playful grin at her question as an appropriately silly song popped in his head.

"How about 'Dead man's party' by Oingo Boingo?" he suggested just before he pressed the button to start the song. It was just enough of fun to sing and it wasn't romantic. They could still change it to something else if she wanted them to, but it would lighten the atmosphere.

Mitri had to blush lightly at Ashlin's shocked expression. Still her smile in the aftermath lifted his spirits and made him think that he might not have scared her off. In fact at her next words, his too blue eyes widened with surprise. He had hoped that he wasn't imagining the chemistry between them. And now to know that it was on both sides made him offer her a warm smile.

"Good I'm glad that I haven't ruined tonight with my shenanigans." he said softly. "I find that I can get carried away when it comes to someone I like. Still I respect your decision, Ash. I will be nothing but a gentleman and your friend until you choose differently." he added. "Now shall we continue with our karaoke, my lady?" he asked, playfully bowing to her.

Kieran inclined his head at her show of sympathy. Still at the same time part of him had hoped that those traits he had described would have sparked another lead. Oh well, back to the drawing board. When the conversation turned to that of his occupation, he felt the same intimidation as earlier. It was more than clear in his book that she could squish him like a bug if she wanted to.

"Yes, ma'am. I am a reporter by trade for a magazine." he admitted softly before adamantly shaking his head. "No I haven't come here for a story." he started to say. He then almost immediately backpedaled a little when he realised how it might sound."I would be lying if writing an article about all of this does not appeal or fascinate me, but it is a foolish wish. If you what I think that you might be, you are more than able to stop me. I value my life more than that." he admitted softly, "Any information that I get tonight, I will use in my own studies and try to find out more about my own lineage."

He hoped that his sincerity was shining through their conversation and that he would survive this night. And yet Kieran dared for more. He yearned to know more and to talk to these other races that Jeanne had referred to.

Mitri's eyebrows lifted with surprise at her sudden flood of words. He hadn't expected to make her this nervous, but then again he had been just wishing for things he shouldn't have been so early. His face easily went an embrassing shade of red as he found his words again. "Damn...I'm sorry that I made you nervous. I'll admit that you definitely do tempt me and make me hope, Ash. I didn't mean to take it that far and make things weird between us. All I want is to get to know you better. If you want to keep it as friends, I understand and I respect it." he admitted sincerely, running a hand back through the back of his hair akwardly. Her response was really no surprise because they had only known each other for a few hours.

He bit his lower lip for a second and then offered her a bright smile. "But if you ever change your mind, trust me I'll be the first one to come to call on you." he added, "I hope that I haven't ruined the rest of our night."

Kieran would be lying if he hadn't noticed how Jeanne's attention grow more astute when he mentioned his job. Shit, he hoped that she hadn't thought that he was so stupid in order to try to report on the club. It was true that this would be the story of a lifetime but there had to be some sort of safeguards to prevent it from happening. After all the general public were still as ignorant as always. Still this didn't stop him from wanting to know and learn all that he could in the process.

So he had to raise his eyebrows at her next words, his curiosity being peaked further. Part of him wanted to ask about those other species while the other wanted to hear more of what she was willing to share.

"I can hear the thoughts of both cats and snakes. As for my cousins, they have both telekinesis. Every other generation or so there had been always one or two people with the odd ability ever since five generations ago. So I suspect that we have an ancestor who was an other. As to what species I do not know." he started to say."What I have been able to dig up is that an ancestor of ours back went missing when she was a young lady around this time period and then reappeared three years later with a child. I haven't been able to find much more because the rest of the records were lost in a fire." Kieran added with a small frustrated shrug.

This was one part that still bugged the hell out of him. He had gotten so close to getting more answers about their heritage only to come up short.

A small concerned frown crossed Mitri's features at the sound of her nervous laugh. He hoped that he hadn't overwhelmed her and made things too akward between them. He hadn't wanted to overwhelm her in the slightest."Are you okay?" he asked kindly, watching as she did her best to avoid looking at him. His morpho blue eyes were plainly a little worried. "I can get you some water." he offered.

"I'd love to sing another one with you, but I would like to make certain that you're alright first."

It was hard not to notice how he was being humored at the moment, but there were worst things. Jeanne was at least listening to him. She could have tossed him out on his ear or scared him away much earlier on. Those were still potential options, but at the moment they seemed farther away. And maybe just maybe, he might have a chance to see and to know that vampires were real.

"Yes." he answered immediately. "Not that long ago I ran into my cousins at the library who had befriended a cat who wasn't just a cat. They were doing research on some of our strange family abilities and happened to catch the attention of a dark imp in the process. I know that this sounds like something straight out of a fantasy novel, but it was real. It happened. And to think, I would have missed it had I not decided to work on my latest article for my employer that morning."

Mitri didn't know what impulse had him extending his hand to Ash but he wasn't about to regret it. For Ashlin had tentatively placed her hand in his. His cerulean eyes brightened slightly as he gazed back at her, singing the last portion of the song. was hard to deny how right it felt. Still he didn't want to scare her off as he felt her hand go clammy. So he tried to gently squeeze her hand before releasing it.

"Thank you for singing with me, Aislin." he said softly, his eyes warm and sincere after the last notes of the song echoed in the air. For as akward as the air had suddenly become between them, he wanted to be real with her. He still dared to hope for a chance. Nothing was set in stone yet,

"Shall we do one more?" he asked softly, eyes hopeful.

Kieran's eyes widened a fraction when Jeanne confirmed his earlier guess. Holy Shit Never would he have dreamed to be meeting the owner of said club that he was investigating. It was so strange. He could almost swear that a certain amount of weird luck or fate was at play. The only problem was that he wasn't sure if this was going to be a good thing or a bad thing. For the odds were high if this was truly a vampire club that Jeanne was one too.

"Oh wow, it is truly an honor to meet you." he said honestly. "As for rumors, most of them are old, but they all have one thing in common. They say that this is where one would go if they wish to meet a vampire. I know how crazy this sounds but most recently I have had my eyes opened as to what else is out there in the world." he admitted as he gazed across the desk at her regal countenance.

"So what was once quite insane idea now seems to be not out of the realm of possibility. This combined with my natural curiosity led to me needing to know more." he added, "Hence my trying to get in here."

Ash was right. Mitri did have a tendency to be a flatterer to both sexes but on the other end he knew when someone really drew him in. Ashlin had the right amount of quirkiness and sexiness without trying that drew him in like a moth to a flame. It didn't matter that she was human. He still wanted the chance to get to know her better and maybe have proper relationship for once. Yes it was a silly hope but why not? Mitri was in a new city. So who knew what could happen?

When her eyes reopened, he had to flush a little at turn of his thoughts and their proximity. Still for as akward as things were, he offered her a small soft smile and extended a hand to her as the song shifted on last time to the chorus.

"Hold me closer, tiny dancer.."

Kieran had no idea what to expect when he got to the front of the line. For if they were truly vampires, there had to be a way of preventing unknown riffraff from gaining entrance. This brought up an array of powers, like mind reading and the ability to do magic for starters. His mind boggled at all of the possibilities. Not that he was one to talk, his own quirk was strange enough. Being able to talk to cats was odd enough but it didn't take the cake with now who his cousins were involved with, a shifter and a dark imp. Both were beings straight out of a storybook and now reality was beginning to seem stranger than fiction. It was a sobering thought, but it was also one that made him even more hungry to know more.

Never would he have imagined the next events that transpired. For one of the most striking women, he had ever seen came out of the club doors and proceeded regally down the line of people from the doors. And even more shocking she stopped in front of him and used his name. Kieran had no idea who she was but it was more than obvious that she was in charge, but how the hell did she know his name? He had to wonder. He felt himself going dumb for lack of words and just the surprise of the situation. So instead, he nodded his head slightly at her instruction and obediently trailed after her. He could only hope that this wasn't going to end badly.

As he followed after Jeanne, Kieran could only marvel at the few sights and sounds he was able to take in as they past through the interior of the nightclub. It really was an amazing place, but nothing of what he had seen pointed to anything out of the ordinary. Still there had to be more to the story. There had to be a kernel of truth to be found here. Even if he didn't write about it, his earlier curiosity had been far from sated. Kieran's eyebrows arched up as he watched her open up a mirrored portion of wall that turned out to be a secret passage. Now this was odd, but an cool addition to the atmosphere.

Kieran took his que from Jeanne and had kept quiet until they had arrived in what seemed to be her office. "I...I apologize. You have me at a bit of a disadvantage here. It is nice to met you, but I have no idea how you know my name." he said honestly as he took the seat that she had made him to sit in. His bright hunter green eyes were focused on her face as he went to answer. It sort of felt like if he had said the wrong thing that he might be squished like a bug, but damn his curiosity.

"I'm sorry. I'm normally less akward than this but I am too damned curious for my own good. I wanted to see if the rumors might be true about this place and maybe meet a vampire. I know how crazy it sounds, but you seem to be the person in charge of this place. So I wanted to be straight with you." he added. His reporter instincts told him that it was to better to go with this instead of trying to lie.

((OOC: I am so sorry about the delay in replying to this. Work kidnapped me this last week lol, but I finally free now.))

Mitri didn't need to read the prompter either. For he knew the words to the song like the back of his hand. Still as he briefly caught Aislin's eyes with his own, he couldn't help but think of how sweetly tender the lyrics were and their current proximity. As akward as it could have been, it made him hope for a closeness with Ash that he knew he shouldn't quite yet. And yet, he still found himself itching to gently touch her face as she closed her eyes.

As her voice cracked on the higher notes, his own voice supported hers as they hit the chorus.

"Hold me closer, tiny dancer. Count the headlights on the highway. Lay me down in sheets of linen..." he sang softly, leaning a little closer as he waited for Aislin to reopen her eyes. For as drawn as he was to her, he wanted whatever that happened between them to be on her terms if anything.

A loving smile curled Arutha's lips as Naoise's purrs increased at his tender petting. God he couldn't wait to fall to sleep. For he ached to touch him and kiss those all so plush lips of his. One day quite soon, they wouldn't have to wait in order to properly embrace in real life. If it was the last thing he did, Naoise would be free. This gorgeously sweet man and cat beside him deserved nothing less.

He then had to laugh at that, his face still slightly red. Arutha's quite vivid imagination was already coming up with what he wanted to do with Naoise the second their eyes shut. "That we did Kit, but I don't think I blame her. For right now we both look like we want to pounce on each other." he admitted softly as their eyes locked. His own hunter ones were blown wide and achingly hungry.

"Yes, I think that we will be able to because...gods I want to touch you just as much as you want me." he added. What would have shocked him if it didn't work this time because the draw between them was so strong.
