Session Ident: #Aeons_Daylight

<@Nox_Aegis> <Storyteller> Zo and someone else are inside the ruins of the FBI building, examining the ground around the elevator that was uncovered a couple of days prior.

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} adjusts his trenchcoat and kneals down, putting a hand on the metal and frowning. “So, I can remove it, can you put one back up in it’s place?”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ is like there!

<+Morose> <Aaron> walks up, double checking behind him before crossing the police tape.

<+MichaelM> Kara shows up a bit late. Her lack of personal transportation and the chaos in the city having impeded her. When she does arrive, it is with a rain-proof jacket pulled tightly around her and a note of exhaustion in her eyes.

<@Nox_Aegis> {Aeneas} looks to Zo and nods once, slowly. “I can restore the barrier.”, his blue eyes san over those starting to arrive. He stands a full 6 feet tall and his skin is very pale white, his hair is white as well and falls loosely about his shoulders. Were it not for the blue eyes, he’d look perfectly albino.

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (Shadowlands) “Oh look, another one. And… that one is actually even more weird.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ looks at Aeneas and then nods to Hollow. “Yup.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> comes forward slowly, taking up a spot to stand near the elevator.  “So, we’re going in there then?”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} nods his head as he looks back to Aeneas, then to Kara. “That would be the idea. They have a head starts but knowing where they went will be helpful.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Aeneas} “You still have not explained to me why I am doing this. What are you looking for exactly?”

<+Morose> <Aaron> looks btween them, then Kara, not about to rat the guy out if it was something he wasn’t keen on sharing.

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ wasn’t saying anything either. He’d study the guy though to see if he was a vampire or something.

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} rolls his eyes and starts to look toward the others. “You all might want to keep lookout while I undo the magic here. I can’t be sure that it won’t start to draw mortal attention once the barrier is down.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) leans over and whispers to Ramirez. “It’s never a good sign when someone refers to people as -mortals-.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ whispers back. “Yeah, usually means they aren’t. So exciting.” He looks out but also keeps an eye on Zo and what he’s doing because he was curious and well, he wasn’t absolutely sure he’d put his trust in the other guy.

<+MichaelM> Kara nods, then moves out a little ways into the ruins, seating herself on a pile of rubble to watch the nearby street.

<+Morose> <Aaron> nods and keeps an eye out on the street as much as on them.

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} stands and begins to unweave the magics on the room below, concentration evident in his features.

<@Nox_Aegis> {Aeneas} glances back toward Kara, studying her for almost a minute, just staring unblinking, then he looks back to Zo and watches.

<+MichaelM> Kara feels the scrutiny on her, and tries really hard not to let anxiety consume her. By the time Aeneas  moves his gaze away, her brow is motted with a layer of sweat.

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} struggles with it for several minutes, but at one point there is an audible buzzing sound in the air and the feel of ozone over the group as the barrier comes down. “Holy shit. I must be getting rusty.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Aeneas} blinks once finally and looks straight at Zo, a distinct frown curling on his lips. “Watch your language.”

<@Death> ~*Ramirez*~ laughs softly. “For real?”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} looks back at Aeneas and sighs then nods to Ramirez. “Sorry about Mr Stuffy over here. But yeah, he is serious.”

<+Morose> <Aaron> chuckles faintly, shaking his head before coming back to the elevator.  “We should probably get down out of sight if the place isn’t so… ignored by people anymore.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Aeneas} nods in agreement with Aaron. “We should enter and get this done.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} looks around once more and then walks over, looking at the keypad, then at the floor of the elevator. “Hmmm. I am betting you don’t have clearence for this.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “Oh, I can fix that… just gimmie a few minutes to violate several laws i am sure…”, she says with a chuckle and sputter of black goo from her neck before she moves to the keypad and disappears.

<+MichaelM> “Err, I don’t think so.” Kara smiles in equal parts apology and anxiety. “I might be able to divine the keypad or something if you’ve removed the wards.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} looks to Kara and nods. “Might be a good idea, seems the ghost is having some trouble with it.”

<+MichaelM> “Ghost?” Kara snaps, looking twice as anxious as before, “there’s a ghost here?

<+Morose> <Aaron> looks to Kara and smiles softly.  “Don’t worry.  I think she’s haunting Ramirez over there.”

<+MichaelM> Kara doesn’t look reassured, but with a sideways glance at Ramirez, she turns to the keypad, closes her eyes, and after a few moments, tries to punch in a code.

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} smirks a bit and stands back, watching as the code sends the elevator up for them. “Nice.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) “Awww. And hey, I haunted her too for a while.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Aeneas} walks over to the elevator doors, and watches the others with that creepy, unblinking stare. “Once we are inside, I will put the barrier back up. So that even if we are killed, nothing should be able to leave.”

<+MichaelM> Kara looks surprised that it actually worked, then slightly bashful at the praise. She just steps back so that Zo and Aeneas can board the elevator first.

<+Morose> <Aaron> follows the rest onto the elevator as it opens, not reassured by Aeneas’s statement any.

<@Nox_Aegis> <HollowDream> (shadowlands) makes some faces but follows along with Ramirez. “Meh. Being dead could be worse.”

<@Nox_Aegis> <Storyteller> The group gets on the elevator than then it slowly starts to descend. Obnoxious elevator musak plays over the speakers as it lowers at a crawl.

<@Nox_Aegis> {Zo} groans as he eyes the speakers. “Really? Is this some sort of extra defense mechanism?”

<+Morose> <Aaron> just chuckles in agreement.  “It certainly is making me think twice about going down there.”

<@Nox_Aegis> {Aeneas} seems totally unphased and just rides it down, staring at the doors the whole way.
