Week 56: A Day in the Life of an Adrenaline Junkie

Post  Fenris on Thu Apr 04, 2013 12:18 am

After talking to some of the people at the HQ Fenris was finally told of a place that seemed like a good place to meet. After giving the other agents the time and place, Fenris set off, to get there a little early, and check the place out before they arrived. The Definite Article looked fairly good from the outside, clean and presentable. As she entered, she discovered that the inside was just as good, a long bar, a window long counter, and several group tables on a balcony overlooking the dance floor.
Unfortunately, it being mid afternoon, the dance floor was empty, but the vibe was good. Fenris strolled over to the bar to get a drink and wait for her new colleagues to turn up.

A few moments later, Silvia entered, glancing around the place with evident nervousness. However, it took her only a moment to pick out Fenris and make her way over to the other Agent with some relief.

"Hey," she said, seating herself next to her colleague. "Looks like I'm here early, then. Are we just...meeting up here?"

Fenris smiled as she saw Silvia approaching"Hi, ah, yes that was the plan. The whole point of this escapade was for me to get to meet people, so i thought we should do some of that before heading up." she took a swig from her drink before continuing "But seriously, I'm glad you turned up first, I don't want a repeat of the London cafe if i can help it..."

Silvia grimaced at the reminder and glanced downwards. "Yes, that was...a bit...awkward. But it's fine, most of the people we're expecting are my housemates." She hesitated for a moment. "Something I've been meaning to say...if you wanted, then you could probably live in the house with us? I mean, if the others don't mind. Which I'm sure they won't. So...if you want, they could probably be your housemates too."

Hugo had not been spending time in London. Hugo had been in Seoul, and he finally felt like he was was really starting to GET it. There were even some HEAVY joints, and he'd spent a fair good time partying. The past week, in fact. And he had no real plan for stopping.

From above on the balcony, there was a reasonably heavy noise, and then a booming voice. "Oooh, picara! Heeey. You're finally here!"

Hugo leaned over the bar from above, hanging only slightly precariously, with Una strapped to his back. "Is that that Fenris lady?" He was wearing his slightly too tight and somehow appealing clothes, and was smiling. Despite the early time, there was a drink in his hand.

At this line of conversation Fenris seemed to tense up, in a way that Silvia was familiar with. "Oh.. um.. <sigh> Sorry to be blunt, but i haven't met your housemates yet, and I can't live with people I don't know... maybe, after today.. but..." Her rambling attempt at an explanation was interrupted by the loud shout from above. She glanced up, then looked at Silvia. "Hugo, I take it?" Fenris then leaned back "Yeah... I'm Fenris. You should come down here so we can't talk without everyone in here having to listen in."

"Oh, of course," Silvia replied. "I wasn't expecting to decide until after today...and yes, that's Hugo." She smiled at the antics of her housemate and waved to him, calling out a greeting. "Hugo! It's good to see you! This is Fenris, yes - come down and join us." She actually managed to conceal the full extent of her eagerness to see him, although anyone with a keen glance could see through her apparent calm (pass L&A by 0).

Hugo grinned hugely at Silvia, and gave Fenris a kind of blank look. "..Picara, tell Fenris that I can't understand, what is that, German? Gimmie a moment to come downstairs. " The massive agent visibly downed his drink as he walked along the balcony, and within a few speedy moments at only slightly more speed than was required, he moved to the bar, wrapping Silvia up in a hug before she had a change for any more greetings. He lifted her off the ground easily, but his affection was explained by the fact he seemed just slightly inebriated. Despite the fact he wasn't wearing his very fine clubbing clothes, he had put some effort into his look, and he smelled again like cologne. (Pass Pr+LG by 5.)

After picking up, hugging, and swinging Silvia, Hugo dropped her and extended a massive if slightly scarred hand to Fenris. "Hugo Zumisimo, nuke, nice to meet you. ..Ah, wait, does she understand Spanish?" This last bit was addressed to Silvia.

As Hugo approached the bar, Fenris turned to greet him "Hi, I-" And then waited for him to put Silvia down, and turn his attention to her. She gingerly took Hugo's hand "Hi, uh, yeah, i can understand Spanish, I got an internal translator after meeting Parvati at the HQ." Fenris grimaces at the memory of that encounter. "Oh.. please tell me you understand English!" Fenris orders herself another drink, then turns back to the others. "Wait a minute... Picara?"

"Oh, it...it's just what he calls me," Silvia said, blushing slightly but unable to conceal her pleasure at meeting Hugo again. She frowned, dredging something up from her memory. "Parvati...that's the psychic specialist, right? I still haven't met her. Is she nice?"

"English, yes. I'm from the Fed. Well, feddish, really. More free statey now. But glad to meet you." His handshake was very strong, but he had obviously practiced gentleness. He grinned and eased onto the bar, leaning heavily. He seemed very friendly with Silvia, but also seemed unaware of her slightly more than platonic blushing. He put an arm around her. "But I speak Spanish now, most of the time. Oh, and there's Sign, but only El Chulo speaks that." The name that referred to the other WF agent came through as "The Pimp", so.. there was that. Hugo flagged down the bartender and ordered 'the same thing as last time' in Mandarin. "I doth speaketh Olde Norse, too. But no one speaks that, and it was really just an experiment, when I was younger."

He shrugged and grabbed his drink happily when it came, something bubbly.

Fenris looked between the two agents next to her, brow furrowing slightly. Does he really not notice? Ok, not my business. she thought, shrugging slightly. "That's just sounds like Swedish with a stupid accent, But are you really referring to Ace? That guy sounds like he could stand in for Tex if he wanted to! I find it hard to believe he would be involved in anything remotely considered pimpish." As she turned back to Silvia, Fenris looked as though she was struggling to find the right words. "Parvati was nice... I think.. We couldn't understand each other, and ended up using some shitty internet translator, which didn't really help. But she did seem very friendly."

"Verily, it doth be olde Norse, the most bloodthirsty and hardethcore of all tongues." He smiled, obviously amused at the sloppy sounding rustic language. He took another swig of his bubbly drink, which seemed to have a flock of flickering green glitter in the bubbles. "And El Chulo is totally a pimp. He is in charge, he makes money off of what we do, he likes to be listened to, he threatens to hit you if you go out of line." Hugo was making his case earnestly, but he seemed amused at the idea. "He even told Coraline to be more kinky and had her seduce a dude! He even told her what to do! He might act like Tex, but he's as cold and hungry as any other chulo. Just not for puss--...Sex." He cleared his throat to emphasize his attempt to clean up his speech, and dropped his arm from around Silvia. He took another drink.

"And I met Parvati. She is nice. Comorosy, but nice, but quiet, but.. respectful. We didn't get to talk much." He shrugged, taking another long draught of his drink. He seemed comfortable, if just slightly tipsy.

A familiar looking figure strolled up to the bar, clad in an understated matte grey armour. Close inspection of the bar dress code would have found this to be a violation, but still closer inspection of the bouncers pockets would find him substantially wealthier then one might otherwise expect.


"Hey all, sorry I'm late, got caught in traffic, plus I had to see a man about a thing with another thing. So...who's cold and hungry as a pimp? I'd have thought they'd be pretty warm anyway, with their enormous fur coats and stuff. Han laughed while taking off his helmet and setting it on the bar.

Barkeep, round of your finest ale for myself and my compatriots here, on me.

"Oh, Hi Han." Fenris nodded her thanks for the drink, and Han noticed a very conspicuous wolf tattoo covering Just under half her face that wasn't there last time they met. She still looked quite incredulous at what Hugo was saying. "Eh, Han? You know Ace right?...Would you describe him as.. a pimp?.. 'Cause that just doesn't fit what i've read."

"Oh...you're Han?" Silvia said, turning to warily size up the new arrival, before pausing for a moment as she thought through how those words sounded as a first impression and started blushing. "Uh...I mean...that is to say...I've heard a bit about you...um. Hi. I'm...I'm Silvia. It's...it's nice to meet you..." By the end of her statement, her voice had significantly lowered, and she was her trademark shade of luminous red.

Hey Fenris. Nice ink, very classy. He flipped a large denomination credit over to the bartender. A...pimp? Ace, a pimp...that's...a...ahah....ahaha

Han broke off into a raucous laughter for quite a while, almost bent double as he shook with hilarity. "Ace? A pimp? That's hilarious. He's a stick in the mud. Went for months utterly failing with the ladies before I set him up with his girlfriend. There's plenty you can say about Ace, and believe me, I've said it all to his face, but calling him a pimp? Nah, thats just soft.

Han turned to address Silvia, bowing slightly, before responding in heavily mechanized Spanish.A pleasure to make your acquaintance, Silvia. I see my reputation precedes me, all good things, I hope. He chuckled slightly. I believe I have heard of you, come to think of it. You were on the Da Nang mission, correct? Excellent work, by all accounts.

Raising his eyebrows to Fenris, Hugo nodded and grinned to accommodate Han into the conversation. Fur coats? Ah. It was obvious from his face while Han talked he didn't believe a word the ex-Ai Jinn agent was saying, but let the disbelief fall when Han turned back to him. "Heeeey, fresa, long time no see." Realizing he was getting yet another drink, he sipped his quickly and shrugged.

"She's really good, erizo. You should see her." He pat Silvia gently on the shoulder with his drink hand before draining it. "Dunno about this one, though. She seems weak." With that he gestured to Fenris, but he was obviously joking, grinning.

At this last statement, Fenris put down her drink, and turned to Hugo looking serious "Look Hugo, do you have a problem? The first time we meet each other, you start bitching about Ace, and spouting a load of shit at that, as far as i can tell. But then you actually start insulting me? It seems down right unprofessional, and a fucking stupid way to introduce yourself! "(perception psycology fail by 6) Fenris was looking quite angry by the end of her little rant.

Hugo took an actual step back, moving his hands up and away from Silvia, raising them apologetically. "Whoooah, whoah. Whoooah, okay, think whatever you want about El Jefe, it's just good natured. But you being weak? That's a joke, dura. I should have made it more obvious." He radiated apology and confusion, looking to and fro around the group. He put his empty glass on the bar, leaving his arms up still. The massive gun was still strapped to his back, just out of his reach. "I'm not very professional, really, but we're also at a bar drinking, so... ..We okay?" He made eye contact with Fenris, voice relaxed.

"Frankly, Hugo, I don't give a nanomonkeys ass whether its a joke or not. You talk shit about Ace, or anyone else I count as a friend, and you have me to answer to, clear? I don't stand for anyone talking crap about people I like behind their backs, you got it? You got a problem with Ace, take it up with him." Han knocked his ale back in a couple of gulps, slamming it down on the table, surprisingly angry, before visibly inhaling and slowly exhaling.

"Now, everyone drink up. The ale here has nothing on a proper aged Sake, but its good enough." He grinned.

Silvia was looking around in confusion and more than a little alarm. "Look, I'm...I'm sure he didn't mean anything..." she tried. "He just...he just like to tease is all. I mean, he does this a lot to me and he never means any harm, really. And Ace...well, I'm sorry but he was a bit...cold." The words were out before she could think them through or do anything about them, and her cheeks started colouring. "I mean, not...not in a bad...well, not that he was...he just...he just...he wasn't really very friendly." By the end of her stumbling addition, her voice had dropped and she was staring at the floor. "Didn't seem like he'd appreciate any kind of talking back..."

"Well... if you say it was a joke.." She still seemed a little unsettled. <sigh> "I suppose i'm not always the best judge of people. Fenris downed her ale, and ordered another drink, this one a bit stronger. "And my name is Fenris. I took it for a reason, and i would appreciate it if you used it." After a little while, "The ale isn't the best but the spirits here seem pretty good. Haven't had Sake in ages, so I've no idea what it's like."

Hugo put his arm around Silvia again, giving her a moment of eye contact and squeezing her shoulder. Despite his tenderness to her, he seemed just as baffled and placatory to everyone else. "Just making a joke in poor taste, no reason to get mad. I quite like El Jefe. And now worries, Fenris. Fenrir is a good name. Mentioned quiet a bit in Olde Norse."

He took his new drink, sampling it. He handed one of them to Silvia. "It's not bad, pretty good." He wasn't quite sure how he felt about it, but a compliment seemed a safe bet.

"Alright, lets drop the whole thing. So...I barely know any of you. Got any good stories? You know, missions gone bad, missions gone weird, that kind of thing?" Han took a gulp of his ale.

"I remember a great one, almost a year ago, one of my first jobs with Oracle. Ended up fighting an Ai-Jinn spider tank with nothing but a shotgun and a motorcycle."
