I’m ready, Mr Record Label

Melanie had long since lost any innocence of what must happen to succeed. On her knees for that passing grade when the final bombed. Behind the lumber yard to earn a meager raise at the Lowe’s. Certainly an evening with the gentleman in his suit, his friend, and the promise of a record deal would be different.

How true this thought was.

“Name, dearie.” She tried vainly to speak, a quirk of sound, a rasp. Not even a half-hearted cough could bring a single note from her throat. Whatever unnatural thing had happened, it could not have been nerves as the doctor said. But why did he say he was a doctor…

The crone of a woman peered down her throat, painfully. With a curt shake of head, she sent “Candy” to a trailer for delousing. As if she had lice! She bathed!

Waiting her turn in a line of junkies, the red head could only shiver, strange anticipation, odd memories. So many flashes as she arched against his chest, every muscle afire as he drew life from the marks on her throat. Memories sang in her, of Mark and his friends, that first night becoming a woman. And yet…behind it all…

She found herself staring out the window, catching a startling look of piercing blue eyes, nearly white around the iris, peering back. A sudden quiet gasp, a few blinks, but the face seemed her own. And yet, it was not.

Where had she seen that face? A rush of hands clasping a jaw, square and far from perfect. Those eyes unlimited in the ropes of white, like a strange layering of dreamcatchers about a sinister onyx gem. Yes, drink child, take me into your veins, learn from my hands… 

Melanie moaned without sound, knees rubbing together, as she recalled a clarity of vision the record label doctor gave to her, so like her own visions to him. “So …real…” she mouthed to no one.

State of the Union

Title: When is the boot going to drop?

Maxmilian proclaims, “Offensive in the near future, be prepared and vigilant.” Seems the same damn message, every week, from this military genius. The last sorties were quick, painless, and proved a point. Few incidents have continued since. He moved along construction at Ben White towards the airport, entering the edges southwest of the Sabbat zone. The Sabbat encountered losses, sent for packs and built up numbers hitting a few drug flop houses and apartments.

I’d say Victor is gearing up for retaliation. Beyond that, information is sketchy. Things down here are still questionable and hot. We could use some help, but entering the city right now will gain too much heat and lead people to our warrens.

 Tackful: Ass bleeder – the fuck – we care what the drek says? Every1 knows he isn’t the pwr in this place. Dorn. Watch that shadey fuck nugget. I bet ol’ Brigs bit it from her scheming shit.

 URHere: yeah, super sad that Brigs may have bit it. literal like. last seen around skid 29C, then that blackout hit.

 Tackful: Blackout my skeevy ass. Something srs going on. And not talking your love life, ass munch.

 BrigsSecurity: My dear Tackful, there’s no need for the flippancy. I am not dead, regardless of your considerable hopes and dreams of it. Love and stakes, Brigs.

URHere: Oh shi– BRIGS! We thought you were dog shit fo’ sho’. war ya been? we need to get back on that network problem. half the skids are flat out gone!

 Niles: Why can’t we ever stick to the subject of these forum posts?!

Threat Level – Yellow Latest counts show a fine line on both sides Cam and Sabbat. The warzone is still in effect down central I35, north to south. The Sheriff has an open call for information leading to the battle and final end of any infiltrators on Camarilla domains. See red, they are dead.

One more time, Sam…
