(no subject)

I can put up with a lot, but you fuck with my face, it's time to die.

The door slams open and a tall figure draped with a thick veil and shrouded in black from head to toe enters. The stench of death and decay surrounds her.

It's Pam.

She lets out a scream of fury, of frustration, of anguish.

That witch will pay for this.

With her goddamned life.

Whoa. That's a terrifying scream! Someone is obviously in a lot of pain.

Baze immediately abandons his staff and tea--almond pear rooibos--at the bar and strides over to the veiled woman, his hands held up in a placating gesture. "You're safe now," he says. "Is there anything I can do to help you?"

Oh, shit, it's the vampire! And she's pissed!

Baze is also rational, to the point where he realizes he'll need to beat a hasty retreat as soon as possible. But he can't turn tail and run now. Not only is she in pain, she asked him a question, and he doesn't want to show her his back. Baze has never before felt like prey, but he feels it now. The feeling sends ice down his spine, which gathers in his belly, and makes the hair on his arms stand on end.

"I'm not sure," he says, as calmly as his rapid heart rate shows he isn't. "I've never met Eric."

"Yes," Baze says, taking an unplanned step back. "That would be wise."

He turns half-way, not wanting to present a target to her, but unable to see any other way around it. She did give him permission to go, so he rationalizes that she's not planning on attacking him. So, he does eventually turn his back on her, and gathers up his staff, shouldering it. Abandoning his tea for Bar to take away, he heads towards the stairs.

This time, when he leaves, there's no whistling.

A good while later, Eric appears.
Well, shuffles by really.
Wrapped in a blanket, sarong style.

He spins around quickly - and very nearly looses his balance.

His head aches and he feels queesy. And the the smell hits his nostrils and he has to swallow and blink.

"Pam?"

Why is she dressed like that?
And that smell ...

He nervously hitches the blanket come sarong a little higher.

"You did? Uhm - wow."

That doesn't sound quite right.

"But - at least you tried?"

That's gotta count for something.

[personal profile] onceaviking 2017-07-16 07:11 pm (UTC)(link)
So that wasn't the right thing to say either.

"Uhm -"

What to do, what to do?

"Thank you?"

His eyes widen and he claps a hand to his mouth.


That is disgusting.

He flinches a little at her outburst and then he tries again, because - well, this is sort of his fault, isn't it?
What with her face and everything.

"Even - even when she did this to you? Isn't there something he can do? The King, I mean?"

[personal profile] onceaviking 2017-07-16 08:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Her anger is practically palpable.

He pulls a little at the blanket.

"But - he can't let her do that to you. That isn't right."

Eric blinks, nervously.

"But he can't hurt you, can he?" he asks. Still feeling responsible.

[personal profile] onceaviking 2017-07-16 09:23 pm (UTC)(link)
He swallows.
Nervously.

"Because of me?"

[personal profile] onceaviking 2017-07-16 09:29 pm (UTC)(link)
She's really intense.

It's freaking him out. And he doesn't know what to say. Or what to do.

"But - you have to be careful. So he won't find out."

[personal profile] onceaviking 2017-07-17 05:41 am (UTC)(link)
She scares him.

But he is also curious, in an odd stomach churning way. About who he was. Is.
Was.

So without really considering the consequences, he follows her through the door.
