<Kitt Bishop> makes her way out of the main hall, taking a look around before hopping down the steps in her bare feet and white robes. She walks over to the side of the building, where it joins two houses and sighs, wiggling her toes a bit in the grass.
Chrys spies Kitt and watches her for a few moments before approaching, but stalks up so as to keep her in the corner. “Enjoying the fresh air?”, he says, edging closer.
<Kitt Bishop> jumps a bit and turns to look at Chrys, glancing from him to behind him and stands her ground, not backing up. “Something like that. What do you want?”, she asks as she looks him over with a slight frown on her features.
Chrys moves even closer, well within arms reach but careful not to actually put a hand on her. “That is quite the loaded question. I want a lot.”, he says as he eyes her top to bottom.
<Kitt Bishop> swallows and actually takes a half a step back. “Well I am sure there are better places to find it.”, she says without looking directly at him.
Chrys leans just close enough to brush his nose over the skin of her cheek. “Perhaps. But nothing closer.”
<Kitt Bishop> flexes her fingertips, crackling with electricity. “I assure you it’s not worth the trouble you’ll find yourself in.”
Chrys tilts his head bit doesn’t move back in the slightest. Still barely in contact with her as he stares at her eyes. “Hmmm. I don’t think you mean it. I’ve seen that look before… And I can smell his earth on you.”
<Kitt Bishop> tries to pull in one direction, then the other as she finds herself cornered back here. “I would think that would be even more the reason to leave me be.”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° went out to work on his obfuscate some more because yeah, it needed work. He’d make his way out from the front entrance and then start heading off silent walking, moving with the shadows and then he heard voices.. yeah.. he walked over that way, keeping silent.
Chrys reaches up with a finger and trails it along her nose, keeping his nose to her cheek. “That depends on whether you think he’d admit to the others that he feels like he owns you.”
<Kitt Bishop> looks up, that spark still jumping between her fingers as she keeps that hand outstretched. “That is a non-issue. Like you are about to be.”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° stops the obfuscate work and just starts walking over there to the two.
<Ghost> makes his way out from the main hall, pausing and stretching at the top of the stairs. As he sees Talwar moving with some purpose, he ops down to see where he is going.
Chrys casts his gaze to her hand, then back up to her face, still without backing off. “You going to use that, or you afraid I might like it?”
<Kitt Bishop> casts a quick glance behind him, and closes up her hand. “I’m not going to have to.”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “I would step about 5 feet apart from one another, now.” His voice was low, soft, but stern. Maybe the knife now twirling in his fingers of his left hand was something to consider as well.
<Ghost> looks at the pair in the corner and then just folds his arms over his chest standing off to Talwar’s side to back him up if need be.
Chrys growls faintly but pushes away from Kitt and turns, looking toward the two others. “Do we really need to play big brother now? We were just talking.”
<Kitt Bishop> edges along the wall until she is out of the corner, circling around over a bit closer to the other two.
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “You will acknowledge your place here. You are -barely welcome-. This means if you do something to her, any of us have the right practically to gut you and maybe leave you twitching for Zaluut to deal with personally. Stand down.” He then looks over at Kitt but his eyes do not fully leave Chrys either. “Kitt, what are you doing and what is going on here?”
<Ghost> keeps silent, watching Chrys more than anything as he just keeps his position nearby to Talwar.
<Kitt Bishop> doesn’t really look up, shrugging a bit. “I was out walking the grounds and he came up to -talk- to me. Just caught me off guard. He didn’t hurt me or anything.”
Chrys looks between them, eyeing each carefully. “She didn’t like my pointing out her blood slavery.”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° looks at Chrys. “And why did you feel the necessity to point out such a thing to her?”
Chrys raises an eyebrow, his mouth half turned up into a sneer. “Call it my nature. Thought we had gotten out of that whole putting ourselves in bondage for some Elder’s pleasure.”
<Ghost> casts a brief glance at Kitt before turning his attention fully back toward Chrys, though he continues his silence.
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Are you so sure it was just for his pleasure?”
<Kitt Bishop> looks up, but keeps quiet on the matter for the moment, shifting gaze almost constantly between Talwar and Chrys.
Chrys snickers briefly. “That, I was attempting to determine myself. Though that line of questioning was interrupted.”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Maybe she does not know.”
Chrys looks honestly confused for a moment. “What? How do you not know? Unless we are not talking about the same thing.”
<Ghost> glances between them and manages, surprisingly, to keep an entirely straight face.
<Kitt Bishop> glances over at Talwar and raises an eyebrow before looking back at Chrys again. She starts to say something and then stops, just wrinkling her eyebrows up as she looks between them again. “Uhm… I feel like I should go work on my research… sorry I started an argument?”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Did you start this argument?”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° ‘s brows furrow.
<Kitt Bishop> blinks and then sighs, shaking her head softly. “No… It’s… my clan can’t take blood by force. It has to be freely given. So I have been feeding on Zaluut, quite a bit. Yeah, I know what that does. I knew before I was Embraced.”
<Ghost> just listens, still keeping watch in his usual, silent manner. Though en eyebrow raises, he otherwise maintains his stoic demeanor.
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° gives no real expression as to whether he is surprised or not. He nods though getting the predicament she’s in. “So you would not know the answer to his question anyway.”
Chrys tilts his head, taking that in. “Never heard that one before. But at least it is an explaination.”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “Chrys, the reason I think he did it is because you were rude to him and insulted his home.”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “I cannot be sure of it because I am not asking him, but it would seem the most logical thing for what I saw. Are we settled now?”
<Kitt Bishop> turns to look at Chrys, then sighs and glances back at Talwar again. “It is an old tradition for their clan, which is why he did that. Most of those here don’t practice it anymore, but he still does.”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° nods. “Alright.”
Chrys looks between them and nods his head a bit. “Oh, no issue here with Old School. His territory, blah blah. Understand all that.”
<Ghost> actually smirks just a little bit, shaking his head as he looks at all the others. “Ahhh, starting to miss the ol’ nomad pack.”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° smirks at Ghost.
<Kitt Bishop> glances up at Talwar, searching his features before looking back down toward her toes wiggling in the grass again.
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° looks at Kitt and his expression softens somewhat, just watching what she’s doing for a moment.
<Ghost> relaxes somewhat as it looks like everything is diffused.
<Kitt Bishop> sneaks a peek back up and looks a little sheepish as she catches Talwar’s gaze. “Thanks for looking out for me though.”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “It is what I should do”, he said after a moment of seeming to contemplate a response.
Chrys raises an eyebrow and then clasps his hands together. “Awww.”, he says before turning and starting to walk away, rolling his eyes.
<Kitt Bishop> glances off toward Chrys for a second and sighs before glancing back toward the other two. “Differing views… we’ll adapt to one another but it may take a bit of time. And perhaps a lot of Vaulderie.”
<Ghost> actually laughs a little, shaking his head. “True enough. Just watch yourself. Like I said before, you let people trat you like a kid… but there are some around here who obviously prey on that.”
°¥ Talwar Khanna ¥° “We all have our roles.” He turned and would move to go back to training and walking silently again.
Chrys walks off back toward his ‘house’ within the Asylum walls, growling softly now and then to himself.
<Ghost> looks over at Kitt once they are gone, tilting his head curiously as he studies her. “You sure you are alright? And I notice you did not mention that Zaluut has also been feeding on you as well. Am I right?”
<Kitt Bishop> narrows her gaze at Ghost for a moment before sighing and glancing off toward the main hall. “I’ll be fine. He was just being a creep… Catharist Tzimisce, go figure. As for the other, there wasn’t a need to point that out.”
<Ghost> nods his head. “Maybe. I was more curious as to why you seemed to be avoiding it than the act itself. But I’ll not pry any further.” He starts to move closer to the building, allowing the shadows to creep over him. “Good luck on your research.”
<Kitt Bishop> watches him for a few seconds, and nods. “Thanks. I’ll see you guys around soon.”, she says and then starts to head off indoors, making for the library.
