Theme


The cab stopped with an abrupt screeching of tires like the driver had just nearly ran over someone or had never actually driven before. The smell of burned tire filled the air as with a dry metallic click the driver's door opened and a slender, maybe slightly out of place man got out. Dirty blonde hair glimmering with all the care given to it, specifically made to look wild, creating a paradoxal fashion choice, even spiking at places due to the hair gel. From the back a large leather jacket, skinny ripped jeans with chains linking from his pockets to his bullet belt, combat boots made for a mosh pit - as he turned around his deep greyish eyes hid behind sunglasses, at night no less. With a knock of the back of his boot he closed the door of the cab shut and reached into his jacket retrieving a pack of red Marlboro, placing one to his lips he gave his shades a nudge to look over them, showing off what seemed like slight eye shadow "Late, figures..." He muttered under his breath as he walked over to a public bench sitting with a loud, obnoxious sigh, his right leg sprayed over his left leg and his arms opened like wings, reaching in opposite directions at the back of the bench. He sat there, unlit cigarette in his lips for what seemed like fifteen minutes until a graspy voice came from behind "You driving cabs now, Baxter? Is the music business that bad?". A devil-like grin painted his features as he responded "I borrowed it Jack, and if it's bad, it's entirely because of your poor skills with the guitar you moron.".


Jack was a rather fit individual, darker skin tone, most likely indigenous blood mixed with latino, a strong jaw and somewhat absent brown eyes. His hair was bleached blonde and even more spiked with gel than Tadeo's. Dark jean pants, boots and a Siouxsie and the Banshees shirt was his choice of wear tonight as he sat next to the vocalist of his band. Baxter looked straight into Jack's face like he was measuring his state of mind until it crossed the -unnatural- point and the guitarrist decided to break the ice "So, New Babylon...Quite the shithole you dragged us into this time Baxter!" The malkavian waved his hand dismissively at the remark "Oh shut up Jack, you're free to go get your blood fill elsewhere if it bothers you, I heard the Tzimisce are hiring...Granted, I don't think they'll let you keep all of your Adonis features." Jack's response was as blunt as it was aggressive "Fuck those fleshmonkeys! I wonder how they can be so posh wallowing in blood and guts.". Tadeo removed his shades and placed them inside one of the jacket's pockets "Pretty well informed of Kindred affairs, for a ghoul. Now I didn't call you here to discuss Count Dracula and his gypsy friends...Did you scout the town?" as Jack prepared to answer a woman strolled by and Tadeo clearly ignored his ghoul to focus on her, knowing this Jack simply waited for her to have passed and asked in dry tone "Do you even rock the sack anymore Tadeo? Seems like your life is a bag of foreplay." Baxter shrugged "To each their own...Now...You were saying?". Jack proceeded to give a long and boring explanation of the places he'd been in and a general idea of what the town was like, leaving Tadeo half-bored "Yeah, that's great, you can read street names, that's wonderful Jack, I always figured you to be illiterate...Did you find anything of any substance? Clubs we can play in? Where local kindred hangs? You know...Shit that matters?". The guitar player gave him a shrug equally as deep as his back "Do I look like the bloody Inquisition to you? Do you expect them to hand me pamphlets or business cards randomly on the streets? You dragged us into this hellhole, you're the one who's supposed to know what to do next...But no, like usual, Baxter just goes with the flow." Tadeo chuckled "Yeah well, it has worked so far, now just go, I'll figure something out, tell the others to wait in the van and I'll call when I got something." With that his ghoul got up, clearly irritated by the lack of direction but knowing better than to start another argument.

Tadeo took a deep breath, now alone once more, something seemed to trouble him as he looked down for a good five minutes, like he was supressing something, and just like that, another deep breath he got up with the same confidence he had before and started to walk down the sidewalk aimlessly, leaving the -borrowed- cab behind. Putting his shades back on he looked into the park behind the metallic fence, peering into the trees... and for a moment he thought he saw a figure dressed in all white roaming about them, a thought he quickly dismissed as he pushed forward, further down the lane. He smiled and bowed his head in theatrical manner at certain females and males that passed by, clearly selecting them based on arbitrary tastes. Not long after he was whistling a jolly tune and singing under his breath..."There was a man so cold no life was in his eyes, he had a look so hard I'd never seen him smile..." With a slight hop and a thud of his boots connecting with the pavement he gave half a twirl and continued "There's a man with no life in his eyes, there's a man with no life in his eyes!" The melody increased in quality but also sound, clearly the man didn't care much for what others might think as he continued his stroll, hoping destiny would find him as usual.
