The laughter that filled the dark alley behind a shady nightclub held clear signs of how intoxicated the woman was.

"No, No guapo. Further in, someone might see."

A whisper followed, clearly male this time before the intoxicated woman giggled again and the sound of her hand hitting his away came. She pulled him further into the alley, giggling at him trying to continue to cup a feel of her curves. Her hand took his and pulled him with her as she walked further into the darkness, keeping his eyes on her as she playfully unzipped her leather jacket and shook it off, throwing it carelessly to the side. She stumbled in her thin heels and laughed as she fell forward and supported herself on his chest.

"Woops."

The man laughed and grabbed her shoulders before she fell. Just to suddenly feel a sharp pain in his side where one of her hand fell. "What the fuck?" He fell to the ground gasping in discomfort as Rubì just stood there looking at him with a syringe in her hand. After doing her job as long as she had it was easy to spot the young ones. The lowest of the lowest, barely even vampires. The man groaned and writhed on the ground. "You bitch" Rubì laughed.

" Ay ay, tu estúpida mierda..."

Shaking her head she walked over to the side where she had hidden her weapons before following the vampire into the club. Grabbing a stake she walked back over to the vampire and was about to crouch down and stake the bastard when he managed a solid kick to her knee. Her knee dislocated and she fell to her good knee looking at her leg annoyed, not a twitch of pain showing on her face before she put a stake through his heart and watched the vampire getting paralyzed. Ignoring him now that she had the control she turned back to her leg and with one hit to her knee she put it back in place.

"I am afraid that doesn't work on me, sweetheart. I assume by now you have realized what I am and who I work for, not many humans walking around with dead man's blood and stakes in her purse."

She grinned and brushed the vamps hair out of his eyes before she walked back to her bag and got out a machete. Looking at the blade a moment she came back to the vamp and stared down at him.

"I got just one question for you... Will you turn me?"

A moment there was nothing on the man's face but surprise and shock, something Rubì expected. She could feel her heart beat a little bit faster in excitement as she stared at the vamp, watched as his expression went from surprise to the ever so familiar, 'Go to hell bitch' look they all got. Sighing bored and disappointed she nodded.

"Wouldn't be worth it anyway. Such a weak blooded creature..."

In one determined swing of the machete, she cut the head of the man and huffed at the remains.

"Requiesce in pace."

Then she turned and walked back over to her bag, throwing the bloody blade in it before going to search for the jacket she had thrown to the side.

Matthew was sporting a typical charcoal grey suit with his gloriously maintained beard watching the fiery woman from the end of the alley with his left shoulder rested against the brick wall. Both hands in his pockets he waited until she was finished with the new Vampire and as she began looking for her jacket he whistled at her and offered a smirk when at last she looked over towards him.

Inwardly he was impressed with the mortal though truth be told the Kine she had taken on was one of the weakest beings that represented their kind, so it wasn't too great of a feat - especially for someone of her apparent talents. Where she had acquired those talents however, was something he was intent upon learning.

Finally speaking up after a few moments of silence between the two, "I see you're looking to join us ancient ones...this isn't the way to do it. Not only are they far too weak for the likes of you, but you're starting to garner something of a name for yourself...and that just attracts unwanted attention." Chuckling low he added quickly, "It's better to work smarter, not harder."

Casting a few quick glances around on the ground she soon found her jacket. She was about to bend over to pick it up when she heard someone whistle at her. Stopping she turned and located the one who had seen her. It didn't take her many moments to understand it wasn't a mortal looking at her. Huffing amused she bent down and picked up her jacket brushing the dirt off it before she addressed the man again. Now with a confident smile on her blood red painted lips.

"That killing was not the likes of you or me. But for the likes of those, I work for."

Smirking she calmly walked over to her bag again and on her way over kicked the remains before crouching down next to the bag. Without looking at the stranger or showing any kind of fear she packed her stuff and closed the bag.

"I have no interest in being turned by some weak blooded torpe.* But a girl's gotta keep up the appearances."

The spanish accent was heavy on her tongue even as she laughed and threw the bag over her shoulder. Rising up she looked at the man and crossed her arms over her chest.

"So Vato, you gonna give me trouble for ridding the world of some bottom feeder?"

"Trouble? Oh no, if I were here to incite trouble, you'd already be a corpse, I'm afraid. Albeit a rather mangled one." Pushing off of the brick wall, he walked her way several slow steps at a time which echoed down the alley, "No, I'm more interested in you if I'm quite honest. You kill for those you work for, as you say, but at the same time inquire after becoming that which you kill. It piques my interest, you see. Why would someone of your profession, look into such an affair? It has me wondering what your big plan is?"

As he uttered the word big he made a show with his hands out wide for dramatic effect, before offering a light chuckle, "A hunter, who also wants to be a Vampire. What a conundrum you have found yourself in little one. Tell me, what is it that has lead you down this path? Was it the murder of some dear beloved family member? It usually is, or ooooh was it perhaps your parents?!" He clasped his hands together in a jolly motion as he cracked a wide grin as he awaited her answer...

"Lucky me then. This outfit works better without the mangling."

Dark brown eyes narrowed as he drew closer. She could not help her instincts telling her to keep him at a certain distance, so with her bag now on her shoulder she walked away from him, towards the exit like they were circling each other. Listening to what he said she arched a brow and laughed.

"And why would I disclose my plans to you vato? You are just a stranger with pretty assets."

A confident smirk laid on her lips as her eyes never left him. Ready to defend herself if she had to. Again he spoke, making her eye twitch jus the slightest in annoyance when he called her 'little one'. And the fact that he hit a bit too close to home. She took another moment to think before he shrugged, it wasn't like her story was a secret.

"Mi madre. The Brotherhood made me kill her and my stepfather, I was only 16, having grown up with vampire parents. I knew they would see me as a threat, so I told them I had been held captive. My mother and stepfather were doomed anyway, but I still had a chance for revenge. To prove myself to the Brotherhood and that *hijo de las mil putas* David Stern, they made me decapitate them."

Untangling her hair from her jacket she flipped it over her shoulder and looked back at the stranger. Seeing the antics he made and the way he behaved she arched a brow again and shook her head.

"Ay, you are nine buckets of crazy, ain't you vato?"

Smirking when she confirmed he had guessed correctly, "It's always about revenge with you Dame's. Well, no, I suppose that's incorrect. It's always about revenge with you Humans. Always so angry, and upset that someone has taken something, or someone from you. Or even made you take that thing which you hold so dear. It's this attachment to the mortal world that makes you all so foolish. You can never see past your own desires."

"You don't grasp the bigger picture, or the whole map, nor the plans laid out before you. Simply rush to your death while avenging those whom you've lost along the way. Can't you all just stop and think for a moment - see that map sprawled out before you, that the path you've taken is even more destructive than the one you had originally set upon? The insatiable desire for instant gratification without foresight will spell the end of your race before long."

Kicking a loose rock on the asphalt towards the woman before it settled a couple of feet before her he continued, "Worry not about this Spade fellow, and worry more what he plans to do with his organization - or perhaps, if there might be someone else on a precipice so much higher than he?"

Rubì listened amused while the man talked. Seemed to be the sort to like the sound of his own voice. Feeling like she had him at a good distance again she came to a stop. Her eyes catching the light from a small lap above her head as she crossed her arms and put her weight on one foot, effectively showing off the curve of her waist and hip. Casting a look down she watched the rock stop in front of her.

"One rarely sees the whole picture until one have all the pieces, and one does not know if one has all the pieces before seeing the whole picture. It's a conundrum, like me."

Amused by her own joke she chuckled and smirked again before continuing

"So tell me then. What is the whole map that I am not seeing? What is more important than my need to crush the brotherhood into nothing but a memory? When the world and everyone in it are selfish, why shouldn't I be?"

Her voice thick with the Mexican dialect even if her English was perfect. The confident attitude and smile never disappearing from her as she arched a brow at him, almost daring him to prove her wrong.

Shaking his head he took several steps closer to her, wondering if it would set her into an uneasy state, where she would yet again her continue the attempts to distance herself from him.

"Oh you misunderstand yet again, by all means be selfish! But why crush the Brotherhood, when you can pull the strings in the shadows, with no one the wiser? Destroy something, or make that something your play thing? Which sounds more desirable, more fun?"

He let out a soft giggle cackle of sorts before taking another couple of steps towards her, noticing her attempt at the typical sexualization of the female body they always tried yet as ever before simply ignoring it. This play thing had gambled on him being attuned to the typical human pervasion of lust when she knew full well he was a Vampire, and far older than most she had come across. It was apparent she did not have all of the knowledge but perhaps that could be taught in time...

"With me as your guide there are many things you might do in your lifetime. Far greater things than simply crushing some shitty Brotherhood that killed your Mother."

Rubì knew intimidation when she saw it. The way he was creeping closer to her even though he knew she was armed. She knew from experience that one could never know with vampires, when and if they would strike. And the shorter the distance the less her chances of having the time to reach into her bag was.

Choosing to stand still the confident smirk lingered but her eyes narrowed slightly as she kept a watchful eye on him. But she had to agree he made a fine point. She watched as he came even closer. Her brow arching as he continued to speak. Greater things?

"I have to agree that sounds... satisfactory. You want to be my guide Vato? Sounds like an awfully one-sided deal. What do you get out of it, or better yet, what is it you want from it?"

Taking a few steps closer to him of her own she reached out her hand to him.

"Rubì Caldera. And who might so you be?"

He smirked as she inquired as to his profit in the deal, something that was of no surprise considering that she thought everyone else was selfish and wanted something out of nothing. "Call it profitability. I profit from you taking down the Brotherhood, and pulling their strings. Pass a little intel my way every now and then when asked for. A very simple deal, and maybe at the end we'll even throw in what you desire - to be turned. It's a win-win, as far as I can tell."

As she moved toward him, and extended her hand coupled with her greeting he hesitated a moment before taking her hand in his, and shaking it. He ensured however, that his grip was not too vice-like before introducing himself, "You can call me, Mr. Eckert. I will call you Rubi from now on then?" His grin widening in anticipation of getting started towards their goal.

So Intel was his price... It was something Rubì could understand. Knowledge was power.

Still, she felt weary over this stranger. No doubt she could benefit from having "friends" around town, but she wasn't about to make herself someones lap dog either.

"Sounds fair enough Mr Eckert?"

There was an edge to the way she said his name, like she was doubting its authenticity. But she did not comment on it. If he didn't want to use his real name he probably had his reasons.

"That's my name El Cerebro, you might as well use it."

She huffed amused before letting go of his hand again and putting it in her jacket pocket. Deep dark eyes looked him up and down before sighing softly and lowering her shoulders a bit.

"So what now then Mr Eckert? Are we going be exchanging numbers? Or perhaps you will find me if you need me?"

Her expression showed that she found the last option highly amusing and stereotypical. Out of her pocket, she pulled a completely black lollipop. Tearing off the plastic she dropped it carelessly on the ground before wrapping her lips around the candy.

"Also I have been thinking. How do I even know you are able to help me with the brotherhood? For all, I know you could just be a handsome nobody with a silver tongue."

He nodded as she spoke the name he had given her, "Fair indeed, Ms. Caldera."

Smirking he added, "Then use it I shall." watching her as she huffed and dropped his hand from hers. Watching her stuff her hands in her jacket before her eyes wandered up and down surveying him.

Chuckling he answered her inquiry with a heavily sardonic tone, "I will most certainly be finding you, Rubi. You need not worry about that."
Furrowing his brow as she withdrew the lollipop and dropped the wrapper, "Hmm...a litterer I see, how unfortunate."

Grinning at her challenge he gently probed her mind telepathically with the use of his Auspex, ~I could just be a handsome nobody, and I probably am, but a handsome nobody can't speak without speaking, can he?~

Shoving his hands into his suit pant pockets he shrugged while locking gazes with her, "Any further questions? If not, I propose we get started - tonight."

Hearing he say he would find her she chuckled. Bloody vampires, so dramatic all the time. No argument came from her though, sometimes a cliche could be fun as well. Shrugging she kept sucking on her candy, the salted liquorice coating her tongue as words slithered in her mind.

Unable to hold back an amused smirk she chuckled and took the candy out of her mouth. Her tongue now stained black from the sugary treat. Eyes meeting his fearlessly.

"Again you present a good point. Better than any cellphone that little trick of yours."

Taking a step to the side she made the path clear if he wanted to lead the way out of the alley. She had no objections to them starting tonight.

"Not at the moment, I will be sure to let you know if a new one should come up. I am excited to know what you think we can do tonight"

Grinning wildly she giggled and put the candy back behind ruby lips. Waiting for him to either lead the way or let her in on what was going on in that pretty little head of his.

Quirking a brow as she offered him the lead, he shook his head, "Oh no, I won't be accompanying you in plain view - that'd be far to...presumptuous of me." Smiling he continued, "I think you'd be wise to investigate a tavern - a particular one at that, by the name of Crimson Lights over in Heritage Park. Perhaps you've heard of it?"

He added after a few moments of pause, "If you're up for it, I will watch over as you do your...thing? Thing." He paused at the end, unsure if that's truly what he wanted to call it before confirming that it is indeed thing that she did. Sticking with that he smirked even wider, "You sure like lollipops. An odd fascination, but perhaps, one that may at some point come in handy. Go there, order yourself a drink, maybe two, and I'm sure you'll find exactly what it is I hope you do."

Rubì couldn't help but snort when he said he wouldn't accompany her. Fair enough, he wanted to hide in shadows and linger around her then that was up to him. Taking a step closer she smirked.

"Aren't I a lucky girl? Got my own little devil on my shoulder. Just what all the girls want."

Listening to him mention the place she nodded. Yeah, she had heard of it, never been there since Burlesque wasn't her thing. But if her new little guardian devil told her to go check it out. Then that was what she would do. It wasn't like she had other more pressing matters to attend to, not tonight at least. But there was a small problem...

"I don't mind an audience Vato. Will you be joining me there, or lingering in the shadows watching? Not so sure they will let me into the place, something about needing VIP passes, which I don't have."

The mention of her candy made her arch a brow and laugh.

"I have a thing for food, lollipops are just easy to carry around. Besides... Most people like the sugary taste of my lips."

It wasn't an invitation or meant as flirting. At least no more than her usual behaviour, more a simple statement of facts. The kindred she had dusted a moment ago hadn't been complaining."

"I'm always in the shadows, dear. I am only visible when the time is right. No more, no less. You needn't worry about getting in, your name will already be on the list."

Furrowing his brow at her laugh, and ensuing comment he cooled, and then simply shrugged. "I don't have a need for lips, if ever I do, I will be sure to let you know."

Moving forward he made mention, "You'll be looking to make in roads at the club, get to know those who are employed there. I want the nitty gritty. The details. Know the place inside, and out, like the back of your hand - or those lips of yours, if you'd prefer. I want a record of everything that happens there, whenever you happen to embark upon their grounds but particularly tonight."

Nodding, he turned to leave before looking back and adding, "Think you can handle that?"

It didn't really surprise her that he would get her name on the list and pave the way for her. But the comment about not needing lips made her laugh.

"Darling. It wasn't an offer."

Listening to him tell her the details of what he wanted her to do she smirked. Really? Not worse? With her eidetic memory, she would have the place mapped out and familiarized herself with every face working there in no time. When he specified that this night was special her eyes narrowed slightly.

"No problem, I have an eidetic memory and getting familiar with the place will be a piece of cake. And let me guess, no point in me asking why this night in particular?"

She didn't expect him to want to answer the question unless it was important to what he wanted her to do. But still, curiosity forced her to ask.

"That's for me to know, and for you to...perhaps find out."

He began walking towards the exit of the alley, one last turn of the head to off some parting advice, "Take care not to find yourself among the heathens this late at night." And as he turned the corner his vampiric speed took him off and into the night.

One of her delicate brows arched as she huffed amused. Fair enough. She had not expected him to want to divulge his plans to her, didn't seem the sort. It made her wonder for a moment who was getting the short end of this deal. His parting advice made her chuckle as she lifted her hand to her forehead and did a mocking salute to him with two fingers as she disappeared. Such dramatics.

Casting a last glance around that she had gotten all evidence of her presence away from there she took off. Stopping by her apartment to unload the weapons before she went to seek out the club he had spoken about. It was just a short cab ride later she was standing outside the place, narrowed eyes inspected the outside for a moment before heading for the entrance. After a short wait, she wasn't surprised to see that her helping devil hadn't been lying when he said her name would be there. A few moments later she was stepping inside the club.

Her dark eyes taking in everything, paying special attention to the layout of the place, the ones working there and the security. You never knew when these things would come in handy. Walking over to the bar she ordered herself a beer, something that wouldn't dull her senses too much before she did a round of the place, seemingly looking for a good place to sit, but in reality mapping out the place. She took a seat at a table in the middle of the room, one that didn't look too suspicious. Watched the dancer that was on for now while drinking her beer.

When her beer was empty and she needed another one, she moved for the bar, taking up a seat with one of the male bartenders. She always had more luck flirting with them than women anyway. Ordering another beer she struck up a conversation with the bartender, posing as a dancer who had just arrived in town and was looking for a job. The best way to make him loose-lipped about the place and the details of the place. Her most charming and flirtatious persona worn like she was born with it.
