"I'm here because I want to be and because Divia is my little nymphomaniac who can't get enough of me ... You are in so much trouble...just wait until we get home...keep pushing it.."

Ignoring the comment, the Tzimisce merely shrugged and glanced toward their uninvited guest. Edick's threats or promises - however one chose to see them - were things she had grown accustomed to hearing over many decades. They did not faze her anymore. Casting the Tzimisce-hating Lasombra a long glance, Divia winked. "A compliment from a sewer rat is still a compliment - I'll take it. As far as your interest in -my- prisoner goes, mister Rontenii, perhaps you'd like to interrogate him yourself? I would love to be the one impressed for a change - especially since you seem to be doing nothing but whining, and that does not become you in the least. Feel free to demonstrate your own powers of 'persuasion' on the clerk and perhaps it will warrant your sticking around here a bit longer? After all, I doubt you'd want to join in me and Matt fucking in a moment - so unless you're here to watch and learn how to get it up, do make -yourself- useful."

Giggling softly, Divia walked behind her desk and sat in her winged-back chair, placing her long legs upon it while locking a stern gaze with Matt, dark eyes flashing dangerously.

"Don't ever threaten me with a good time, mister Edick. Or I will make you suffer for it."

Matt held his comments as he watched the scene before him unfold, grinning widely as she cast a long glance to the lasombra and then winked, she was just so damn seductive and sexy. He keyed into her comment about them fucking in a moment and got all giddy, nearly shuddering in excitement, as she giggled softly he moistened his lips in anticipation as she walked behind her desk to sit in her winged-back chair. He watched in amazement as her legs perched upon the desk just before her gaze locked with his as she spoke.

Biting down on his lip at her promises he chuckled as he made his way around and behind the desk to stand at her side, hand gingerly cupping her chin, "You know I think I would rather enjoy your so called 'suffering' perhaps you should...entertain him with such delectable delights." suddenly his fangs came to bear in fascination as he pressed his mouth to hers and bit into her bottom lip, drawing the slightest droplets of blood into his mouth, the taste of her magnificent as he mounted her and ravaged her mouth roughly with his as his tongue probed the inside of her with a wanton desire.

Adriana had taken her time after concluding her business to survey the area around her, standing in front of her office window. She was thinking, and plotting, and curious to see where tonight's actions would lead. They had abducted and interrogated a human member of an organization or individual spying on her. She had learned about this individual, and knew where he had invested his money. She knew that if you wanted to get someone's attention, you either waved money in front of them, or took it away from them. She figured whoever had enough of it to invest in a place like Club Haze, would not be swayed by the money-waving technique, and before the night was out, her own human servants would start to infiltrate the Haze and the Aria. She needed to know everything that went on in there, before hitting their wallets.

Some time later, the woman suddenly stirred from her thoughts, spun around, and headed towards the elevator.
Her pace was calm but swift, her heels clickety-clacking on the stone floor of the basement area, announcing her presence well in advance before she eventually opened the door to Divia's 'office' and, while standing in the doorway, she silently took in the scene before her.

Nilkon sat still and listened to the vile things. He knew exactly what those two were thinking; they saw Nilkon as weakling, only because he chose the path of honor and did not lower himself to the tzimisce level. Even worse, they thought themselves fit to order him around! Him - a lasombra! That would not stand for much longer but at the moment he needed to play along just to keep this circle from not falling apart before they could even do anything.

“Perhaps I would like to assist in the interrogation, yes” The lasombra made his way to the unconscious prisoner and then started kicking the man until he woke up. Once that was done Nilkon grabbed the man by it’s hair and dragged him across the entire room to a mirror that was hanging on a wall. There the prisoner was put on his feet but still held in place by the lasombra. Nilkon made sure that the human would be looking at the reflections of himself and the thing holding him. Within the mirror Nilkon Rontenii appeared as a walking corpse – a dirty skeleton in rags and a mandible that moved when he talked. “Look at my true reflection, human. I know death and I can smell it on you. You will die here – alone and forgotten. All you can do is choose how it will end. Tell us all that you know and I will throw you to those two to be tortured, they will change your bones and your flesh and it will be slow…painful. However if you keep your mouth shut you will still end up at their feet only this time the torture will never stop. They will go again and again and again; once they get bored they will use you as interior decoration for hundreds of years…”

Nilkon wanted to use his disciplines to add more terror for the human but he heard the unmistakable sound of his sire’s high- heels. Once she opened the door to the office Nilkon pushed the human aside only to have him hit a wall and stumble to the ground. The dutiful childe immediately took a formal stand and awaited to hear what Adriana had to say.

Divia watched the spectacle unfold, wondering if Nilkon had a single vampire backbone in his pitiful body. Kicking, really? And that show with the mirror - so unimpressive. The pathetic kine was barely conscious as it was, so chances of him actually caring what the Lasombra looked like were likely nil. Having announced her presence, Adriana made her way into the office, garnering the Tzimisce's momentary shift in attention.

"Your Childe was about to assist in the interrogation, dear Adriana," Divia's lips curled into a playful grin. "Would you like to watch or take part? Either way, you look like a cat that just swallowed a canary. Then again, maybe you always give off that impression to keep up appearances and make us all guessing, hmm?" The ruse was obvious and the Tzimisce knew that the Lasombra woman would not divulge any new information lightly or easily - not unless it suited her purpose. Still, it would not have surprised Divia if Adriana had learned something new during their brief absence; the latter had an uncanny way of procuring something ... out of nothing.

The human wretch was momentarily forgotten as intense hazel orbs locked upon Adriana's inanimate facade.

Adriana remained silent for a few seconds more after watching the initial reactions to her presence, and inwardly she was pleased with Nilkon's the most. The lingering eyes on her also did not go unnoticed, and she gave Divia a small, mysterious smile in return to her playful grin, slowly dipping her head in her direction. "Oh yes, the bird was quite exquisite."

Leaving it at that, she closed the door behind her, her eyes returning to her Childe. "Carry on, with the interrogation then. I am quite interested in what it has to say. So I shall watch." Silent, deliberately slow steps towards Divia's office chair, and then sank herself down in it. Of course, she owned everything in this building, possibly everyone, and she was sure to make it known. Turning her attention back to Divia then, she gave another slight smile, "Tell me, dear.. is the human my surprise, or is it something more... surprising?"

2013-10-15 12:47:00 Matt rolls 3 dice to Bonecraft (Diff 7) 9,9,3
-1 BP

Matt would break the kiss as he heard the door open and turn to stare down Adriana, shifting slightly as he sat mounted atop Divia's figure, the fact that she was ignoring him pissing him off more than usual. Suddenly, as the witch named Adriana spoke, an idea came to Matt and he dismounted from the female who always denied him in the presence of others and yet always partook of him when in private. Such a dangerous relationship he knew but the need and desire for her and the pain always won out.

Walking over to Nilkon and the human puppet he smiled across to the Lasombra "A lesson I have always stood by is that when one will not talk you simply do not allow him to talk. Idle threats and appearances within a mirror won't do much for this boy. Leave that to me." grinning widely as he knelt down beside the human, his right hand extending towards the mans lower jaw. Then something rather gory and quite sadistic would occur, flesh and bone would begin to tear and deform until the mans entire jaw had formed into something symbolic of a trophy.

Matt had transformed the kine's jaw into a charm of sorts, Matt being the sadomasochistic freak he was chose the shape of a heart with a hole in the middle - though it was small enough to fit on anything, that he decided then and there would become a necklace or perhaps even a bracelet or watch - some form of jewelery he knew. The fact that the human would likely die meant little, really nothing, to Matt and if it pissed off Adriana or the Lasombra well that would be okay too. Matt never had been one for heirarchy or authority - it pissed him off to no end, arrogance and the claim to righteousness as it was.

Turning towards Divia with that trademark mischievous smirk he remarked slyly "I think he's all talked out my beloved. Pardon me while I...fulfill my need?" turning back towards the kine on the floor beneath him, his kneeling stance not changing throughout. Pocketing the bone charm he slowly bent down towards the mans ear and began to whisper "Don't worry it will all end soon...with your blood everywhere, and it will be glorious."

Nilkon watched as Matt applied his talents on the mortal. He watched with disgust but also a small interest at what the tzimisce created. "Oh well, I tried to warn him." He then leaned back against a nearby wall crossing his arms over his chest. To his sire he asked "Did you gain any new information that would help us with the current situation?"

The Lasombra watched stoically as Matt turned the man's mouth into trophy. Her face remained still, but inside her rage was boiling. After all, she had specifically stated she was interested in what the captive had to say. She assumed that was what the miscreant wanted however, and so she kept it there. A few moments passed, and then her internal rage turned ice-cold. Nilkon would probably notice what was happening, and he would know it was not going to be good.

Standing up, the Lasombra raised herself to her full height, her eyes staring straight at the Tzimisce. "You are no longer welcome here. Not in this office, not in my domain. That is to say, you need to be anywhere but within my reach, for your own good health. I will not slay you where you stand in a courtesy towards Divia; you are her responsibility. However, if you ever do return, that courtesy will end. Goodbye, mister Edick."

After her speech, the woman pointed at the door.

The domain she mentioned spans the entire Casino/Hotel complex, and the surrounding buldings. That is to say, pretty much this entire thread's setting.

The NPC Mortal is now severely bleeding after having his jaw ripped from him. The shock of everything has sent his mind into madness and caused him to black out. He will die by post 136, if not brought to a hospital or the wounds closed off.

"You heard the lady," Divia stared pointedly at Matt and gestured to the now-unconscious semi-corpse. "And take this wretch with you. Drop him off at the nearest hospital in such a place that he would be noticed by appropriate medical personnel. We don't need a trail of bodies to lead to the Circle. You will take care of it now, mister Edick." The 'tone' of the dark gaze now boring deep into her Childe seemed to be saying, 'I don't like this any more than you do, but you know this must be done.'

"I will speak with you later," the Tzimisce nodded toward Matt one last time, hoping he would understand just how important his task was to her. "In the meantime, do as I ask."

Turning toward Adriana, she chuckled. "Any idea as to how to get blood out of my prized Turkish carpet?"

2013-11-05 22:43:20 Matt rolls 3 dice to Fleshcraft (Diff 5) 5,5,5

Matt would pay no attention to Adriana and only react when Divia had addressed him, turning to face her and lock eyes with her as she instructed him. He would nod and grab the kine with disdain as he attempted to seal the wound in his jaw with his powers of fleshcrafting before dragging him along behind him out of the office and down the hallway to the elevator. Entering the elevator, propping the human up with his shoulder, depressing the lobby button waiting as the elevator doors closed and ascended in its shaft. As the elevator stopped, and the doors opened, Matt hurriedly exited the elevator into the lobby and headed for the exit doors of the Bellagio with his wounded kine in tow. Towards the limousine he would make his way and hurriedly slip into the back seat with the mortal across from him slumping down onto the leathered seat.

Lowering the privacy partition Matt spoke quickly and clearly to the driver awaiting his instructions "Proceed to the hospital and do not delay. We must save this mans life." the driver looking into his rear view mirror and nodding as he stepped on the gas, the limo quickly lurching forward and onto the streets of Vegas. Luckily for Matt the nearest medical facility was roughly ten minutes away, Montevista Hospital, and as they pulled onto W Flamingo Rd Matt looked over the mortal carefully observing to ensure there were no other dire wounds. Finding none he would relax in the seat and await the final few minutes.

Ten minutes later...

As the limousine rolled up to the steps of the Montevista Hospital Matt quickly grabbed the kine and opened the back door. Dragging him up onto the steps a few feet before quickly releasing him from his grip near the entryway and returning to the limousine, closing the door as he entered, and quickly directing the driver "Now get us home." hoping that someone would pick up the man and escort him the rest of the way for the hospital treatment Divia had requested. As the limousine took off for home Matt sat silently pondering everything that had happened tonight and how Divia would explain it all...

Once the tzimisce left Nilkon allowed himself a small smile of relief. The less he saw of that clan the better. Stepping away from the wall Nilkon walked closer to the door. He then spoke to his sire "Is there anything you will need of me at the moment? I would like some private time to rest. Since I came back to the city tonight I had no time for that. And afterwards I still need to check on the casino security before the night is over."

Adriana watched the man leave silently, before turning to address the questions directed at her. The first was to her Childe, and as her head shook a little, the Lasombra gave a small smile. "No, my dear. If you wish to retire, that is fine. And yes, please do make sure the security is in order." And now she turned to Divia, before looking over the mess the other Tzimisce had made. "Hmm.. Perhaps time for a new carpet?"

Now she also turned towards the door, before pausing a moment, looking back at the Tzimisce, "Oh.. so the mortal was my surprise, then? Dissapointing, dear." And with that, she started for the door.

Divia ignored both the Lasombra as she watched Matt take his leave. The man knew how to follow instructions, knew how to differentiate between what was important and what wasn't - but only with certain people - and he was enough of a savvy businessman that Divia could leave him to his own devices when it came to Edick handling matters on his own end. Having known him for well over a century now, the Tzimisce knew she could trust him.

"Hmm?" was the only absent-minded response she would offer Adriana regarding her comment on the stained carpet.

The other comment was swiftly ignored; she was not in the mood for Adriana's rebukes. She would only wait until the witch was gone out of her sight and then she too, would vacate this poor excuse for an 'office'. It was time to seek rest in her native soil; time to regroup and recap all that happened here this night. Divia knew well she could not win all her battles - one had to pick and choose carefully that which she'd attempt to face. Tonight's face-off was over; it was time for some long-deserved, well-earned rest.

Divia exits scene.

Nilkon went straight to his room. The casino security could wait until tomorrow night. For now he just wanted to finally rest after a very long night.
