Voodoo 004: Hollywood Tour (TBC?)

[Amber is “off work” today. And by off work, that means she didn’t have to run around town. Instead, she…. did some research!] -04:54 Sep 01
[Sigfried fed and then slept, leaving his assistant with the day free.] -04:56 Sep 01
Amber: It started as a simple bit of checking facebook to threaten her "friends" about taking down those pictures of her. Then it was snooping about herself. Where she went to school, who she lived with, bits about her family… All stuff she "knew" but was still fuzzy on the memories. Then she was… well, snooping. Her old friends were assholes, cheats, liars, and betrayers. The last thing she wanted was to wind up like that again. So she started digging for information about her new boss and overlord. And it was… interesting! So interesting, it was almost dusk and she was still sitting at the computer reading things. -04:59 Sep 01 Amber
Sigfried: The wound of the blinds opening signaled nightfall and as always as soon as the las rays of day vanished there was the sound of movement in the house. He did not come for her, she had had the day off and so he had no use for a report on her activities. No, instead he looked out over his kingdom. -05:03 Sep 01 Sigfried
Sigfried: The wound of the blinds opening signaled nightfall and as always as soon as the las rays of day vanished there was the sound of movement in the house. He did not come for her, she had had the day off and so he had no use for a report on her activities. No, instead he looked out over his kingdom. -05:03 Sep 01 Sigfried
Amber: Click, click, click. So engrossed in old articles, she missed the blinds closing and didn’t look away from the computer screen until she reached for her tea to take a sip and found the cup empty. A huff preceeded her rising from the chair, and when she turned, she shrieked and quickly silenced with another loud huff. How the hell did he move around so damned quietly? "Good Morning, Master! I guess you slept okay?" It wasn’t HIS fault she got startled, but she was sticking her tongue out at his back anyway as she passed to fetch a fresh cup. -05:08 Sep 01 Amber
Sigfried: "It passes all the same if I do or don’t." he said without looking at her. "Have you decided you are a slave and must address me that way?" he asked. "Amber… or should I call you girl, or bloodbag…?" -05:15 Sep 01 Sigfried
Amber: "What’s the matter, you don’t have a sense of humor anymore either?" Amber wasn’t surprised. He was probably old as sin and simply forgot what it was like feeling ANYTHING… or… it might have been something else. Something very juicy she dug up from old records. Amber was grinning as she filled her cup with tea and popped it in to the microwave. The open floorplan of the place was wooooonderful. She liked that she could blabber at him from pretty much anywhere. "I’m kinda of surprised you don’t rename all your zombie pets. You know, with a name of someone you were fond of. Like hmm… What iiiis someone you were once fond of?" -05:21 Sep 01 Amber
Sigfried: "I call then thrawl until they remember thier names for that is what they are, at least it’s not goul." he turned to look at her. "Your… associates have left town and I doubt they will ever ruturn, I hope this pleases you." he was ignoring her bait, she was reaching. There was no way she knew anything since there were no records in the house. I might be fond of you if you do your job well, good enough?" -05:24 Sep 01 Sigfried
Amber: Her friends… that made her smile disappear for a bit. Amber was back to scowling when she pulled her cup out of the microwave and fussed with choosing a teabag to drop in the hot water. "Yeah it ‘pleases me’, in that, apparently I was a stupid awful person once upon a time sort of way." Amber had already decided she didn’t care to know anything more about herself. Outside of her missing necklace, the rest of her life could… go away. This was her new life. …Maybe! "So I am the only thing you’ve ever almost been potentially fond of? Not even, say… an actress?" -05:28 Sep 01 Amber
Sigfried: "No." he said. "Actresses are tools, puppets in the eternal theatre." he raised his hand gesturing her closer. "Do you admire them? If you have tallent I’m sure I could manage someting." -05:31 Sep 01 Sigfried
Amber: Amber made a face. Acting was definitely not on her wish list. That wasn’t the kind of attention she was after. Settling on an earl grey tea, she dunked her bag while giving him an examining look. "Are you sure there wasn’t even just one? Because I read some very interesting old newspaper articles. Old Hollywood things, about one very mysterious producer and his lovely actress. It reminded me a little bit of you…" -05:33 Sep 01 Amber
Sigfried: He eyed her and then shoov his head. "It’s either forgotten or wasn’t me, either wau irelevent… why is it important that I knew someone? Maybe she was an assistant like you?" he abandoned the window to move to the couch. "Where did you read this?" -05:36 Sep 01 Sigfried
Amber: "As it turns out, I chose really shitty friends, but I am actually really good at doing my homework…" Amber was a bit hesitant on telling him where. She wasn’t sure how far his reach could get in his city-wide empire. "She definitely wasn’t an assistant. It was this glamorous love affair. One of those happily-ever-after looking things, only without the ever after…" -05:40 Sep 01 Amber
Sigfried: "Nothing has an ever after." he said spreading his arms out on the back of the couch. "Not love, not assistants, not even me. When you live a long time you learn everythign has an end." he looked at the window. "What else did you do today? anything rpoductive?" -05:44 Sep 01 Sigfried
Amber: "I thought you were supposed to be all ‘I live forever, my torment is endless’ broody and stuff?" Amber took her cup right over to the sofa and with a delicate balance, plopped next to him to sip. "I did a little research on Murial Delanney. She was a very charming woman. Apparently the kind of woman that men fell hopelessly in love with." -05:48 Sep 01 Amber
Sigfried: "I will die, some day. " he said giving up on her joining him on the couch and lying down. "The name doesn’t sound familiar, but if she was here I knew of her once. If you know so much about it why don’t you just tell me." -05:52 Sep 01 Sigfried
Amber: Her subtle fishing for information wasn’t working. Then, it never really did when it concerned him. Amber set her cup down on the coffee table, and leeeeaaaan over him. "Do you really not remember, or are you just refusing to tell me ANYTHING about you? According to those articles, mister mysterious was her fiance. But she broke off the engagement, and then no one really saw anything from him again, while she become miss famous star. Ringing any bells, or are we gonna stick to the mysterious angle?" -05:57 Sep 01 Amber
Sigfried: He looked up at her and narrowed his eyes. "Believe what you want to." he said. "MAybe I did know her, maybe I really was just a lowly producer once or at least pretended to be one. If I am starting to forget the early days of the city that worries me but it is not unexpected. I think you just want to seem me as humen." -06:08 Sep 01 Sigfried
Amber: "It’s true that I’d to know that you’re more than just some mindless creature wandering about aimlessly running a city for no good reason whatsoever…" Amber crossed her arms, sitting on the edge of the sofa, still half leaning over him. "We have a nice boss-zombie relationship thing going on, but if I’m supposed to live here with you, I want to KNOW you. You’re not human, but ~I~ am and I need… connecty stuff! I’m one of those kind of girls." -06:14 Sep 01 Amber
Sigfried: "I have a mind, I am self aware, I pass all ther prerequisites to be concidered sentient, what you want to know is if I can feel." he said narrowing his eyes at her. "Probably, yes." he said. "But when you’ve experienced everything, what new horizins do you have? Only those in fantasy… and I dontrol the fantasy factories." -06:21 Sep 01 Sigfried
Amber: "Which sounds a whole lot like trying to fill a big empty void to me." Totally heartbroken vampire hides himself away from the world and decides to stop feeling? That was pretty much Life 101. Inhuman or not. Amber just sighed. "I don’t just want to know IF you can feel. I want to know what kind of person you are. That’s understandable don’t you think? After somebody discovers their past choices totally sucked? I’m getting a redo at life here, and you’re currently the only person I have." -06:25 Sep 01 Amber
Sigfried: "I’m ambitious, obviously. Cautious, or I wouldn’t have survived this long. if you want to get to know me we should redo the tour… it certainly told me a lot about you." -06:27 Sep 01 Sigfried

Voodoo 003: Old Friends

[Siegfried has woken to find the house empty. His newest purchase is out late…] -01:11 Aug 31
[Amber has spent a few days being a personal assisstant and evening dinner for a vampire. It’s been okay. Except TODAY where she’s running $^%%&#^@ late cause she had to be in five million meetings and still have enough time to buy HERSELF some dinner.] -01:13 Aug 31
Amber: In fact, that’s what she was doing right now. Walking out of a Chinese place trying to jostle her takeout bag with a bag from the dry cleaners, a huge portfolia of stuff her "master" needs to look over, and thiiiings for herself. There were SOME perks to having a limitless credit card. -01:20 Aug 31 Amber
Amy: "Ommagawsh!" her trademark cry rent the night air as she stared at the person in front of her. "Amder…?" There was a worried look at her companion, they had dumped Amder in New Orleans as a brainless zombie… "It’s… SoooooOOOOoooo good to see you! Even in last season’s dress." -01:25 Aug 31 Siegfried
Julia: "You’re alive!" Julia croacked, and was quick to correct herself. "I mean lively! You’re look totally cute and stuff!" Like her friend, she looked super surprised, but wasn’t nearly as good at playing it off. She was twisting her bags in her hands. -01:29 Aug 31 Amber
Amber: Amber may as well of run in to a couple of robbers or something by the way she stopped so suddenly. None of the people she knew lived here in L.A. and after snooping over her facebook page a few days ago, her "friends" were not people Amber was all that happy to see. "I guess everyone just assumed I was dead, huh. Seeing as no one reported me missing…" -01:36 Aug 31 Amber
Amy: "EEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!" Amder was hugged. "We had no idea what happened to you sweety." Amy cooep before pulling back. "We were to worried… what happened? We’ll bring you home. Don’t worry honey. God… everyone will be so releaved." Yes, they needed to know how much Amder remembered. "How about we go get slushies? Hmm?" -01:40 Aug 31 Siegfried
Julia: "Yeah! We didn’t know what happened! We were pretty drunk…" Julia chimed in before also going in for a hug, but with slightly less enthusium. She didn’t want her brains eaten. -01:43 Aug 31 Amber
Amber: Amber was stiff and if it weren’t for the bags in her hands, she might have shoved them both away. "Funny, there seem to be plenty of pictures with me tagged up on Facebook. But I guess we were all too drunk to remember what happened huh?" Amber wasn’t so sure what she believed about that, but they definitely hadn’t thought she would SEE any of the pictures or comments. Just like they were pretty surprised to see her now. "I’m supposed to be meeting someone, anyway. I live here." -01:46 Aug 31 Amber
Amy: "Andeeeerrrr." her voice was a whine. "You can’t live here. We go to college together, you’re my roommate…" there were two hands clutching Amber’s arm. "Come ooon, we woke up, you were gone and we called our parents and looked for you. Hoooneeeeey don’t be mad. We’re just happy to see you." -01:51 Aug 31 Siegfried
Julia: "I thought we called her Auntie and sai- Oh right, yeah! Well, you know we called SOMEbody and we totally stayed with Brett too cause he was all kinds of upset and stuff about you!" Julia wasn’t great with this lying stuff, especially since Amber looked suuuuuper pissed off? Did she knoooow? -01:55 Aug 31 Amber
Amber: Of course Amy was lying, then again Amy didn’t ever really remember anything about other people unless she wanted something, right? How come Amber never realized that before? Amber was giving Julia a narrowed eye stare as she tried to untangle herself from Amy. Julia always cracked under the pressure. "Actually, I can and do live here. I have a very nice job that I’m actually starting to like. Though… how IS my boyfriend? Hrrm…" MY boyfriend didn’t sound right. There was a tingling of a memory but it was making her a little dizzy trying to recall it. -01:59 Aug 31 Amber
Amy: "Oh! He’s here with m… us!" Amy said not letting go of Amber’s arm. "You know he was was so mopey and sad about you we just HAD to take him somewhere and where better than HOLLYWOOOD!" He’d be soooo happy to see you so you can forget about a job where you can’t even afford a decent pair of shoes and come back with us, okay?" there was a kiss on Amber’s cheek. "Come on honey. We’ll take you to meet him…." Amy was gesturing at Julia to call the man. GOD that girl was usless when deciebt was needed. Amber was a muuuch better flunky. -02:06 Aug 31 Siegfried
Julia: Oh god, oh god, Amber was thinking! Thinking was bad! Julia nearly dropped all of her things while looking for her cute little pink phone. "He’s gonna be like really surprised, REALLY surprised! I’m pretty sure he said Amber was neve- Um, you know, that Amber probably um, oh, here’s my phone!" -02:12 Aug 31 Amber
Amber: Amber glanced down at her shoes with a frown. She was pretty damn sure nothing she was wearing was out of style, her dear ‘master’ was weird about that. Urrg, what was she trying to remember? "He was pretty upset that night. Not sad, though.. Angry." Didn’t she have some sort of fight with him over something…? "I told you about it, didn’t I? About the fight." -02:12 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: "Amber, yes you fought and he was going to appologize and was so sad that you went missing before you did. He blamed himself and… why don’t you just come with us to see him, hmmm? You parents will be soooo happy we found you. Why don’t I call them for you?" There was phone in her hand like magic, she was scrambling to keep Amber’s mind away from anything but that night. "Here, it’s ringing…" -02:16 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amy: "Amber, yes you fought and he was going to appologize and was so sad that you went missing before you did. He blamed himself and… why don’t you just come with us to see him, hmmm? You parents will be soooo happy we found you. Why don’t I call them for you?" There was phone in her hand like magic, she was scrambling to keep Amber’s mind away from anything but that night. "Here, it’s ringing…" -02:17 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: "You know, unless my parents are zombies, I am pretty sure they’re not gonna care." Amy had been her roomie since the start of college, and the girl still never got that right. Not like she listened, because she was already on the phone calling god knew who. Brett most likely. Amber’s boyfriend. No, her EX boyfriend, that sounded much more like it. …but now Amber was narrowing her eyes at Julia who looked white as a sheet. Amber hung up the phone before someone picked up. "I don’t have time for any of this. Someone is waiting for me. Unless, Julia has something to tell me?" -02:26 Aug 31 Amber
Julia: "Z-zombies? HA! Haha… ha.. Amber you’re totes funny! Haaa." Julia dropped her phone and had to scramble to pick it up. Amy was taking care of everything, though, Amy always knew what to do! "Oooohhh my god, Amber, what would I say? I mean, you’ve been missing for months and we were like, sure you weren’t ever coming back. Brett and Amy was SUPER sure, I mean they said you were- um. Nothing." -02:26 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: Amy made a hand across the throat gesture. Julia was NOT to mention that. "Amberpoo, I’m your best friend. At least talk to uuuusss… Please." there was a distinct pout at Amber, and puppy eyes. "Cooome oooooon. Come meet Bret with us." -02:46 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amy: Amy made a hand across the throat gesture. Julia was NOT to mention that. "Amberpoo, I’m your best friend. At least talk to uuuusss… Please." there was a distinct pout at Amber, and puppy eyes. "Cooome oooooon. Come meet Bret with us." -02:47 Aug 31 Siegfried
Siegfried: There was a shadow agaist the chinese resturant adn if anyone was paying attantion they would see it wasn’t being cast by anything, and then a tall, thin, long white haired man stepped out of it to place a hand on Amber’s shoulder. "Amber, you’re late…" his voice was neutral along with his expression. "I believe she said she had work to get to, and she does. Six figures doesn’t earn itself." -02:51 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: He had scared the daylights out of her. If only because she had never seem him outside of his vampire-condo. So she glanced up at him in surprise, and then a slight frown. "I’m not that late. Surprised you didn’t just summon me or something." On the bright side, it was fairly gratifying to have him there. She was -finally- free of Amy, and Julia looked ready to scream. -02:58 Aug 31 Amber
Julia: HOTTEST MAN IN THE UNIVERSE! Julia wanted to squeal! He was totally old school handsome with movie star flaiiiiir! Julia was staring at him like a lost puppy. "Hiiiiii. Take me home too?" -02:58 Aug 31 Amber
Amy: "Who is this wierdo?" Gos that hair, thos horrid, old clothes, that curve to his lips, so natural and so… NO! THIS MAN WAS THE ENEMY… to be slept with! "Hell you can take me too, because.. um.. Amy is my best friend (sorry Julia) and where she goes I go." -03:03 Aug 31 Siegfried
Siegfried: He ignored them and slipped an arm arounf Amber. "We’re not going strait home, if you’re working for me you need to see the city like I do…" she was suddenly free from Amy’s grasp and they were walking along the street slowly. "We’ll start with somewhere you can eat your food. You’re going to get a star tour like no other." -03:05 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: Amber was about to protest that best friends didn’t let you get zombiefied and sold in to slavery, but her dear master was already whisking her away. …and she was kind of glad for it! Though maybe a little irked too. She cast only the quickest of looks over her shoulder to wave goodbye to her ‘friends’. Amber had the feeling she’d hear from the soon enough anyway. "Let me guess, I didn’t come home by sunset and you were worried I ran away?" -03:08 Aug 31 Amber
Julia: Julia leaned close to whisper to Amy. "Um, I think you guys said she was as good as dead and was gonna be all dumdum forever? I think she knoooooows." They were all going to go to prison! Girl’s prisons were the worst! -03:09 Aug 31 Amber
Amy: "No shit genius, I thought you were smart or something." Amy complained. This was the worst EVAAAAR. "You follow them, don’t be seen. "I’m calling Bret and we’ll catch up with you. Whatever you do do not talk to them." he punched numbers into her phone and started walking away from Julia. "Bret, babycakes, we have a problem…" -03:12 Aug 31 Siegfried
Siegfried: "You’re a smart girl." he said walking with her under the gaze of the famous sign. "I seem to have gotten the pick of the litter with them. Here, this park." he stepped though a gate and suddenly the city seemed to be far away, it was quiet ehre with the fient scent of spring flowers despite the lateness in the year. -03:18 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: "Or maybe I just don’t remember how stupid I am. Cause apparently those are my "best friends ever"." Amy wasn’t lying about that, anyway. Those two were her best friends. Amber was a pack girl! She was brooding a bit until they stepped passed a gate in to what she assumed was either a private park, or just one of Hollywood’s more awesome secrets. It was quiet and pretty, just like his fancy gardens at home. "I thought everything in town was asphalt and concrete…" -03:23 Aug 31 Amber
Julia: "Follow them, right!" Julia saluted, and as stealthily as she could tip-toed down the sidewalk after Amber and her cutie hot boss guy. No wonder Amber never came back! She was going to be the best spy ever and Amy would be super proud. Sneak, sneaky! -03:23 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: "Would I really build a city like that?" he asked the world in general. "Yes, I would. I do not know how this park came to be but I have presurved it. Everyone seems to just walk past it without noticing… if I didn’t know better I’d suspect magic." he let her to an old, almost victorian wraught iron chair and table set. "Take a seat, eat." -03:33 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: "Ignoring what’s right in front of them seems to be a habit for people." Amber muttered. She liked this place, it was actually really nice and felt like an escape. Especially when her head was spinning with broken up memories and an awkward encounter. She set down everything carefully and slid in to a seat. "I think I broke up with my boyfriend… Or maybe I was going to? I don’t know. I keep remembering these little things and it’s like a double whammy of suck." -03:40 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: "If you did or not is irelevant." he said, remaining standing as he looked at the wall of the building nect to the park. "You’re done with him now, aren’t you?" he turned his head to look at her before sitting. "It will be like this for a while, you are regainign memories far faster than is normal, I have to wonder if there is something wrong… or if your life left a deeper impression on your personality than most." he had no idea what social media allowed people to be reminded of. -03:49 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: "Well, y;know, being abandoned by your so called friends and sold in to zombie slavery isn’t exactly a pleasant experience, now is it?" This guy occasionally had her baffled with how little common sense things he picked up. Then again, most of the time she wasn’t sure if it was HIM being slow or her being slow and him just letting her spin around until she figured it out. Sighing, she plucked one of her takeout boxes from a bag along with a plastic fork. "The more I remember, the more I don’t want to. Isn’t THAT the weird part? It’s like… I remember having a pretty awesome life. Everything was what I wanted, at least that’s how I remember it. But now it’s like… seeing it a completely different way. Like Amy. Amy is my bff, but I dunno… What kind of bff ditches you at Mardi Gras." -03:54 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: "You’re asking me about humans." he reminded her. "But I do know I would never… hire her. Her blood is tainted." he said. "You are happy here?" he asked his red eyes examining her. "I know money does not buy those with… attachments happiness." -03:59 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: "I think the question should be ‘Were you happier there, than you are now.’ and I don’t really know the answer to that yet." She took a bite, and was regarding him curiously. He kept making such a big deal about having his assistants happy, but it all seemed a little strange. "Are YOU happy here?" -04:03 Aug 31 Amber
Julia: Oh noooo! She almost lost them. Julia wandered up and down the street twice before she heard a familiar voice around a corner. She poked her head in and peeeeeked. Oh my god! So much grass and stuff! Blech, bugs loved grass. Oh, there they are! Having dinner all romantic like. Ooooooo. So unfair! Julia pulled out her phone and texted Amy. "FOUND HER. BETWEEN THIS BAKERY AND A JEWELRY SHOP. OMG THEY HAVE THE CUTEST THINGS IN THERE. OH BTW ITS A SECRET GARDEN OR SOMETHING, ISNT THAT WEIRD?" -04:07 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: He looked at her, his lips sealed. He seemed to freeze like a statue, though the mose was far more natural than any artist could ever capture. Only the slight movement of his hair in the night pir differenciated him from a photogragh. "Where else would I be happier?" -04:08 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amy: "Got the bitch, right this way honey." he was proctically pulling the man along until they reached the place and Amy peered around the corner. "Well done Julia, Bret, go in there and woo that bitch back to us. Julia… I think you’ve just earned that dress we both wanted but I looked better in so got it first. It’s out of style anyway." -04:10 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: Of course. Why did she think he would answer a questions straight up? He never did! Amber rolled her eyes. "How would I know? I don’t know anything about you. Except you’re a control freak, with a weirdly detailed eye for women’s fashion, and you’re all mister picky when it comes to your dinner." -04:11 Aug 31 Amber
Brett: Brett felt this was a terrible idea. Brett thought Amy was totally pulling his leg when she called, and thought this was another one of those super sexy role play dates. Instead, he was getting shoved through a gate and Amber was really there. Not a zombie. Not dead. Chatting up with some white haired freak. If he wasn’t TOTALLY HORRIFIED he’d be pissed as fuck. He strode forward, clearing his throat good and loud to announce his arrival. And then he didn’t know what the fuck to say. He just kind of stared at Amber! -04:14 Aug 31 Amber
Julia: "You’re the bestest, Amy. And you’re totally right it looked way better on you. I can find another one!" Aw man, she really wanted that dreeeeesss. She couldn’t get it now though, Amy would burn her panties while they were still on if Julia ever bought the same thing. In the mean time… DRAMA BOMB! Julia spiiiiiiiiieeeeed! "Ohmigawd, do you think there will be a fight?" -04:16 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: "I’m not going to bite someone who has Hepatitus." he said before a man appeared at the gate and he slowly stood and stepped away from the table, towards the man. Then his nose twitched dadn he walked up to the stranger. "Welcome, I know who you are. Want to take a seat and talk to Amber?" he knew it wouldn’t happen, his man reaked of discomfort… -04:17 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amy: "I just said you could have it, Shug." she said petting Julia on the head like a spoiled dog. "Now shush, I want to hear what this wierdo says… I mean who would hire Amber anyway, I’m waaaay hotter." there was an irritated look on her face. This was totally unfair. "Do you think if we both slepped with im he’d give me a job?" -04:19 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: "That’s not even-" Stupid vampire. Her conversation with him was cut short, though. Here was the boyfriend. Super tall, super stocky. He was pretty much a walking stereotype of college hot dude. And he looked about as happy to see her as she was to see him. "No, he’s not going to have a seat. I don’t know why Amy called you, I don’t want to talk to you." In fact, no.. no she REALLY didn’t want to talk to him. Breakup or something up, just seeing him was making her stomach lurch. -04:24 Aug 31 Amber
Brett: "We should talk about …stuff. Amy wants you to come back with us. And.. I don’t know what you remember, since you were seriously drunk, Ambs, but I know it’s probably all mixed up in your head." There, he found his voice and remembered how pissed off he was. She was gonna dump him, and now show up months later with some Hollywood douchebag? "You shouldn’t go running off with douchebags you don’t know, Ambs, that’s exactly what happened in New Orleans. You got all pissy and ran off. Left us all hanging and worried as shit." -04:25 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: He looked between them, then stepped around Brett to lean in and draw a long breath through his nose. "Interesting…" he said leaning back out. "Hepatitus B… transmitted via sexual intercourse… exactly the same type Amy has and Amber does not…" he turned to look back at the gate. "Attachments… such a mortal thing to have." -04:33 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: …Now Amber knew what he was getting at. All that Hepatitus chatter. Amber was furious. Furious. Enough she could feel her face turning red, and could hear her own heart beating. Out of reflex she reached for something that should have been hanging around her neck, and with nothing there was grasping on to the collar of her dress. She was trying to count down in her head, but THAT wasn’t working out. Amber merely hissed, instead. A controlled, seething hiss of a reply. "So that’s who it was. I knew you were cheating on me. I knew you were texting somebody… And AMY too! No wonder none of you gave a shit!" Who cares if Amber was missing! He and Amy probably fucked their way back home! -04:41 Aug 31 Amber
Brett: "Dude, what?!" There was that horrified look again. Amber was remembering things, and her being pissed off about the whole cheating fiasco was not the worst thing she could remember. Brett didn’t even consider or wonder how that douche knew about stuff. It was Amber that was concerning. "Ambs, ain’t none of that true, I love you a lot! Now if you’ll just come on back to our hotel, we can all talk about this!" -04:41 Aug 31 Amber
Julia: "Uuuuhm, sounds like Brett is getting all girl screamy. Should I go in there and knock somebody out?" Julia whispered up at Amy. This tended to happen. Brett wasn’t all that great under pressure, but Amy was woooooonderful and always knew what to do! Plus, Julia totally wanted to use her cool new self-defense tazer on someone! -04:43 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: There was a thin smile as he circled back around. "You should have yourself tested." he said. "Your condition can lead to all kinds of things, liver cancer isn’t even the most serious." he could hear thier hearts beating, hers in anger, his in fear. "Amber, remember you’re at work." -04:46 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amy: Aww hell, things were not going on, but Amy knew control when she saw it, that guy ooozed it. If there was anyone in control of the situation it was HIM. "Yes Julia, go and give that asshole a dose of electricity while I get Bret to grab Amber and we’ll take her home. It’s for her own good." No one out played Amy S. Thornburg! She was storming into the park now trusing Julia to follow. "Bret um… Platonichoney… why don’t you bring Julia back to the van and we’ll all head home… right now. Amber it’s really for your own good. I’d rather have you safe with me then with some psycho and let him have his way with you." -04:51 Aug 31 Siegfried
Julia: YAY! Time to be Super Julie! Julia was practically skipping after Amy. No one ever really thought twice about a cute girl skipping in to the park, While Amy calmly told Brett and Amber how things were going down, Julia whipped out her snazzy Hello Kitty tazer, hopped over to mister hot guy and went right for the GUTS! Sorry Hot Guy! -04:55 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: The electricity’s only effect was to make the man turn towards Julia, then his eyes turned bitch black and the shadow he cast from the street light grew outwards until it covered the entire part, rising in tendrils of black smoke until it swallowed them all, feeling like tar in thier lungs, suffocating and sticky. The only place that remained clear was where Amber stood, and into this island of clear air Siegfied stepped. "I’m going to need to feed tonight." he said, his voice sounding ghostly adn hollow and somewhere in the cloud Amy screamed, though it sounded muffled and far away. "I don’t think I like your friends." -05:15 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: Amber had plenty she wanted to say to just about all of them. What she wasn’t expecting was Julia to go all tazer crazy and then… well… this. The creepy black cloud of doom. Just when she thought she was used to her new vampire master, there was stuff like this. Clear spot or not, Amber felt like she couldn’t breathe, and was now tugging her collar on purpose to give herself a bit of cool air. "Can’t say I like them much either at the moment… We should go home. Preferably without murder. Despite the fact, I’m starting to think they deserve it." -05:20 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: He held out his hand to her. "So long at we leave this park soon and I make it go away in time they won’t suffocate…" he said "This clear spot is centered around you so if you move it does. Come walk with me."his voice still have the same haunted tone and his eyes remained dark, though in closer inspection they were not black, but the color of dry blood. "If it helps you feel better they will have nightmares of this night… they all do." -05:23 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: If she didn’t already have nightmares, she probably would too. Amber gave him a dubious look, but only for a second. Then it was another sigh and she quickly gathered up his dry cleaning, her bags, and the portfolio before she took his hand. "You probably shouldn’t have wasted your energy on all the flashy stuff. I was about to tell them all they could fuck off." -05:28 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: "I don’t think you’ll ever see them in LA again." he said taking up her food and walking with her, pausing only to set over a retchign Bret on thier way out of the park and true to his word the mist fell away in rivers of smoke as he looked back. "Vampires don’t like being attacked. Especially with new linds of weapons that might lead to some yet undiscovered weakness… I’ll try not to make intimidation a habit abound you." -05:32 Aug 31 Siegfried
Amber: "…okay, maybe that is a legit reason this time, but yeah… This vampy magic stuff kinda freaks me out a little bit." Amber didn’t look back. She didn’t want to see them and… maybe not looking back was the best in the long run. Everything she remembered made her skin crawl. Amber squeezed his hand as she frowned. "You’ve been a better friend with all your biting and weirdness than they’ve ever been, so whatever… I’m missing something though. A necklace…" -05:38 Aug 31 Amber
Siegfried: "Maybe one of them took it, I will ask the man who sold you to me about it in the meantime." he continued walking his eyes, back to normal even though he looker a little paler and thinner, drained. "You will get your tour tomorrow… tonight you have off until you choose to let me feed. You desurve a little time to relax." -05:42 Aug 31 Siegfried

Voodoo 002: Job Expectations

[Sigfried has rested… and it’s a new day.. or night as it were.] -11:15 Aug 19
[Amber is not so rested… but under the circumstances, that should be understandable!] -11:16 Aug 19
Amber: The moment the automagic window… thingies… started rolling up, Amber had picked herself up off the sofa to wander over to the window and stare outside. She was frowning, with her arms crossed. Dressed in one of the incredibly fashionable little dresses she found in her new room. Amber didn’t fail to notice that everything had very wide necklines or off the shoulder sleeves. Of course they would. The better to eat you m’dear. On the bright side, they were aaaawesome and she definitely appreciated looking like a L.A. native movie star. -11:19 Aug 19 Amber
Sigfried: There was a sound and he was in the niddle of the room without seeming to have come in through any of the enterences. "You’re still here." he remarked stepping over to the couch and sitting down. "That was the third dress I bought for you after you came here. You will never remember it but it was the first one you managed to dress yourself in." he might have been lying, he might not, either way she would never find out. "How do you like my house?" -11:34 Aug 19 Sigfried
Amber: "I did leave. Just to make sure I could." she muttered, glancing over her shoulder to where he was now seated. He startled her, but she thankfully hadn’t jumped or shrieked. "It’s crazy lavish… I did also snoop, by the way. Through everything I could get my hands on." Where did he even come from anyway… Amber glanced around to see if there were some unhidden doorways or stairs… -11:37 Aug 19 Amber
Sigfried: "I knew you would do both of those. I even told the coffee shop ont he corner to expect you. "He looked at the table and there was a small sigh from the creature even though he never breathed. "What did you find? I’m interested." takking his cheet with his nail his eyes found her again and refused to leave. -11:41 Aug 19 Sigfried
Amber: "Nothing interesting about you, which was what I was after…" In fact, the place was pretty barren when it game to personal effects. Outside of him having very expensive tastes in modern luxuries and spiffy looking antiques… If he HAD a personality, she sure as hell couldn’t find it. …which left her stuck thinking about her own all day. "I didn’t stop anywhere when I went out, I just wandered a bit.. mostly because I didn’t think to snoop around here until after I got back and then found spending money. You’re pretty damn confident I wasn’t going to run away or talk to police…" -11:47 Aug 19 Amber
Sigfried: He shrugged. "If you had it wouldn’t have mattered." he said "And you said you wouldn’t so you would only have been breaking our deal." there was the bearing hint of a smile on the curve of his lips as he stood and stepped towards the window. "The only clues you need for my personality are right in front of you." -11:55 Aug 19 Sigfried
Amber: "All I’m getting is the ‘Look at me I am super mysterious’ vibe, and I don’t like it." Amber really didn’t. He never really seemed to answer questions, nor did her offer information outside of the weirdest most inconsequential things. Why did it matter that this was the third dress he bought her? Amber was scowling again, tempted to step closer and see if she could intimidate him… but she didn’t know where that was coming from, and doubted it would make a difference. He’d probably eat her. "Speaking of our deal, I’ve thought more about it… Not that I am changing my mind about it, but I suppose I feel a little more confident in accepting it." -11:59 Aug 19 Amber
Sigfried: He glanced at her and then looked back out the window. "Where did your thoughts take you?" he turned to face her fully, what she thought would affect how she did her job and that was relevant to if the offer was still on the table… though she hadn’t left so it probably was. "You don’t have a problem wonking for something like me?" -12:07 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: "You mean do I have a problem working for a vampire who bought me as a zombie slave? Yes. I have tons of problems with that!" Now she was staring him down. Her arms crossed as she turned, half leaning against the window as she frowned. "But I guess I’m smart enough to figure out that staying is the most common sense idea. They’ll lock me up if I tell the police the truth. And even if I stopped by a hospital, it’s not like that have special places to put amnesiac patients. I don’t have anywhere to be, and frankly a job and a nice place to live sounds so much better than a homeless shelter and wandering around local libraries hoping that someone finally realizes I’m missing and reports it…" That was the worst part. He had a computer. She looked for missing people reports. Her face wasn’t anywhere! -12:13 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: If she was trying to intimidate him he took no notice other than hi run his hand though his long, white hair. "You are smart." he commented before moving away from the window and running a hand over the back of the couch as he walked past it. "Do you have any questions?" -12:34 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: "I’d like a nice tidy to-do list for my job. And a better explination of what that actually IS besides ‘stand there while I bite you.’ And I suppose I’d like to know this whole… eating schedule thing…" Amber didn’t look too pleased about it, and it was probably the second worst part about this entire mess. On a whim, she trailed behind him. -12:49 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: Rounding the side of the couch he sat on it and looked at her. "You will be helping me tell movie studios what movies to produce adn thich ones not to produce… you will be delivering my choices for directors, actors, actresses and you will be providing me with advice on thses matters. You will help me shape stars adn watch them fall. The lives of celebroties are the greatestr shown on earth and I am thier director, script writer, and meddling exective. I have been since the very begining." he pettd the cussion nixt to him and leaned against the arm rest. "As for feeding, what was it like?" -12:58 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: "Oh great, managing an entire industry with no idea what I’m doing." When he sat, she gave the seat next to him a dubious stare. Sloooowly she eased down in to the seat. "And what do you think it’s like…? It’s weird. It’s touchy feely intimate, but creepy crawlie feeding time… I suppose it wasn’t the worst thing." -01:02 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "I have every idea what I’m doing." he said brushing her hair away from her face and looking at her. "I will feed when I need to, there will be no regular schedule." his eyes were on hers again. "Have you found anything out about yourself? And did you look in the bottom drawer of your cupboard for the handbag you had on you when you here sold to me?" -01:11 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: She was frowning again, but this time it wasn’t really his fault. The funny part was that she had realized something right that moment too, which really kind of sucked. "Other than the fact I feel clingy and stupid? I don’t know… I didn’t sleep well and had a lot of dreams. I dunno if they were just dreams or memories or what, and I’m not all that keen on trying to remember the details anymore. I’d rather ask who sold me to you so I can go punch them in the face." -01:15 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "As fleeting as business relationships with humans are I cna’t let you attack a business partner." he said. "Unless you can prove to me he sold me used goods." here was a glance towards her lower body and then his eyes were back on her face. The other part of what she said was more surprising, might be a side effect of the bite he had given her. "I think I’ll let you rest tonight." -01:31 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: Ick… she might have paled at the words used goods but she also wasn’t shirking away from it. Amber just scowled and crossed her arms again as she leaned back in her seat and pulled her feet up on to the cushions. "What constitutes as used goods? Does it count if I fooled around before being a zombie? Cause I’m pretty sure I did. It’s the afterwards that bothers me and I am kinda sure that happened too. It’s you I’m not so sure about…" -01:35 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "It’s after that I’m concerned about too." he said before standing, slowly. "I don’t been anything as base and.. mortal as sex." he said running his naill across the palm of his hand and then holding his hand out, blood dripping onto the surface of the table. Then he opened his palm and blew across it, a red mist forming into a shape just not destinct enough to recognize before swirling and vanishing. "I will need to feed tonight." -01:42 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: …that was actually kind of neat. Ignoring the fact he was a monster who apparently ran all of Hollywood. Amber had unconciously leaned forward to see what he was doing and now that the misty stuff was gone, she was plopping back against the cushions again. "I don’t understand you at all… I don’t know if I want to ask you a bunch of questions about vampires and sex, or if I should just go back to topics that aren’t going to break my brain. Daily to-do lists versus ‘Everything you need to know about vampires you couldn’t learn from Twilight’." -01:47 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "Your daily to do list is to check for messages and leave them on the table here. Read all of the celebrity news you can and write a short report and give me advice on.. anything really. And yes that was a funny series of movies, I think most of the jokes were lost on mortals though." -01:54 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: "This sounds like the worst kind of homework…!" Reading vapid magazines? Writing reports? Why did this feel like something she already did all the time anyway? Amber tilted until she flopped over on the couch. A limp, lifeless lump of report writing. Hmm, but he wanted advice on things too… "And how do you know I am going to be any good at advising you? Is this a thing you do every generation? Grabbing some random young girl who knows what’s cool? …How old ARE you?" His hair was white, but that didn’t mean anything when a guy had cleaver proof skin. -01:58 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "Older than this city." he said "Older than this nation… I don’t remember when or where exactly I was born, or became what I am. And I think my average is twice a generation. It really doesn’t matter if your advice is right or wrong, I find of they have a say in what goes on people are more likely to stay." he placed a cold hand on her nack and looking down at her face. "How much would you work for?" -02:05 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: "How manipulative of you… do whatever makes them stay." His hand was cold… Today she was much less tense than yesterday, but she was still wary. And worse, touch was nice. She could use a hug or something! Was she a huggy touchy person? Amber didn’t bother sitting up or swatting at him. She just huffed a bit… "You mean job wise? That really depends on what kind of work, cause right now you’re just vague about the details. Which is okay for now, I guess… We can negotiate my fees. It’s the omnomming I’m a little iffy on the payments for… I guess that’s more like a donation…" -02:16 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "I see it more as a perk of woking for me, you get a say in the global culture more than anyone alive." he ran his hand up her cheek before twisting it and sinding it gliding back down her neck. "The feeding in a… vonation, no that isn’t really the right work. It’s a concession on your part and a necesity on mine, it can be built into the sallary if you want. "The blood on the table quivered and he looked at it, then waved a hand making it bleed away into nothing. "Do you have a problem with me feeding on you?" -02:34 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: If this were any other situation… like a boyfriend, maybe! It would be great. She’d be melting in to the sofa, maybe even grinning or purring. Instead she was dealing with the weird mix of wanting to, while also finding the whole thing totally insane. "Yes and no… I don’t trust you is the problem. I don’t know you… and that squicky feeling doesn’t just go away cause I want it to." Or because she likes petting. And did she, and it was all vampire glamor? She didn’t know! That was the problem! Amber sighed. "It’s fine… you need to eat, and I need a place to live. I’ll get over it." -02:42 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "You’d be an idiot if you did trust me." he said. "I have given you no reason to other than not going back on my word."his hand reached her shoulder and crested it. "I am sorry I cannot satisfy your needs." he said softly. "But then I doubt you’d want me to." -02:55 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: "What… kind of needs are we talking about now…?" This was a prime example of why she didn’t understand him! One moment they’d be talking about her job duties, or were they always only talking about the job duties? Why did everything he say have such…. sexy undertones to them? Why did she even think it was sexy?! That’s it! She had to take control over the situation! A slow hiss of breath slipped up as she sat back up again. Of course, her whole plan was forgotten once she was upright. Amber couldn’t help the questions. "If I did trust and want you to, would you even want to? Do you even want to do anything at all? Do you have enthusiam for anything…?" -03:02 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "Sexual needs." he said looking at her. "And that depends on you. You’re interesting so far but I don’t know you either." he stood and left her to walk back over to the window. "I have learned one thing though, enthusuasm is for those with a limited time to live." -03:18 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: At least it wasn’t all in her head and he WAS talking about what she thought he was talking about. Now she was trying to piece the bits together. He didn’t want to have sex with a zombie, and he wanted personality… and yet, he didn’t seem to get any joy from anything. Amber turned around in her seat, sitting on her knees and peering at him from over the back of the couch. "Okay…. so… that means you are a total zombie in bed. I can see where having an equally as unresponsive partner would make the whole mechanics of things kind of impossible…" Amber was barbing him on purpose. He seemed to be completely cold and emotionless, she may as well test the limits. -03:24 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "Well I am dead." the comment was casual and offhand as he turned to look at her. "The difference between me and what you were is I can think for myself and you have a heartbeat. "Maybe that’s my real reason for firing you, because this job needs passion and that’s not something I have anymore… did you think of that?" -03:29 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: Completely unaffected. Or else he had a lot of patience. Amber rest her chin on the back of the couch and shrugged her shoulders. "I am still trying to figure it all out. I’m a little slow, okay? I don’t have a bazillion years of experience to back me up. I don’t even have…. however damned old I am." She was scowling again. "Why even do this stuff if you don’t enjoy it? You’re just… existing to exist… You should go find meaning or something." -03:34 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "Twenty three." he said looking at her. "Like I said I had your bag sent and left it in your room. It had an ID." then he was tilting his head to the side an looking at her. "You’re sounding very human." he said "You think because I can’t die that I have nothing to live for? Maybe… but look at everything I’ve built." -03:43 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: There was an ID in there..? No need to look for missing people reports, she could just look herself up directly! It’d answer everything about who she was. …most of everything. Amber cast a hesitant glance back towards her door. "You said yourself you don’t have a lot of ethusiam for anything. What’s an empire if you’re not getting any joy from it?" Dammit… all the answers she need are in the other room, and apparently now she’s afraid to know! Amber plopped back down on the couch again, this time dragging a pillow over her head. "Although I guess I can see the benefits of hiding in an LA apartment forever…" -03:48 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: He stepped back to stand behind the couch, hands on the back and looking down at her. "You’re trying to goad me, is it your hope that I’ll show you passion and take it out on you that way?" there was a slightest of smiles, he doubted that was what she was doing but two could play as any game she chose to try. -04:02 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: "I was trying to goad you and it sure as hell WASN’T for fiesty angry sex!" She sat up quickly, looking about ready to fling that couch pillow right at him. Amber retrained herself. "I’m just trying to make observations and get to know you, so I don’t have to sit here feeling like a stupid idiot! YOU may not feel a damn thing about anything ever, but me and my mortal self is stuck feeling all of the things all at once without any idea what to do about it!" -04:07 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: Stepping around he reclaimed the place on the couch and looked ahead. "You’re young, it’s understandable." his voice was somehow softer. "I was teasing you too. Is that a good enough result from your goading? That you make me do something that I might still enjoy?" his hand found her shoulder and he tapped her collarbone with his finger. "And I always enjoy feeding, even if I never want to." -04:12 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: She made a weird sort of sound. A mix between annoyance and sheer bafflement. He switched everything around again. Always too fast for her to follow, and Amber got the distinct impression that yes, yes he did enjoy something. He enjoyed talking her in circles and watching her floundering around like an airless fish. She deflated with a huff, conceeding to defeat despite being unaware there was some sort of game afoot. "Yeah? And what’s so great about it that makes it worth doing even when you don’t want it?" -04:16 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "Other than not starving?" he asked. "For a moment my life energy adn that of the person I’m biting are connected." he said. "That is the only time I can feel alive." he would have sighed if there was air in his lungs but there wasn’t so he simply inhaled to speak again. "The more effort I put into it, the more alive I feel and the more the… donor… enjoys it." -04:26 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: …she wanted to kick herself for that sudden surge of interest. Amber didn’t have vampire fetishes…. that she could remember. There was just yesterday and an awkward situation kinda feeling, not so bad at all. This was interesting in a crazy sort of way. "Well what… kind of effort are you talking about? Predator attack and pounce kind of way, with the gnawing and chewing? Or the touchy touchy way?" -04:29 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "Foreplay, pure and simple." he said "Light touches, Making sure they’re either relaxed or worked up in the right way. Intimacy is the key, and when the, I hate this term, but souls collect the more in tune they are the more they can share." he glanced at her and then lookek ahead. "Probably exactly what you wre thinking, by the way your heart rate want up for a second before you asked." -04:34 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: "I don’t want to get all intimate with you." That was a lie. …not really a lie, it was more of a weird urge to crawl in his lap and cling. Which, really wasn’t sexual at all when she thought about it and he wasn’t touching her. The touching made it all complicated. "…You know, this may sound kinda dumb, but it sounds like nomming people is just a cheap replacement for finding a soulmate… Are you the only vampire around..?" -04:38 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "The only one that doesn’t want to kill me and I have never sired any kinder." there was something in her voice, imposible to place but there all the same. "So I’ll simply bite you and get it over with, that’s the way I prefer it. And I said I don’t want to so that obviously means I want no soulmate either. It’s simply the way bites work." -04:45 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: "You don’t want to, but you always like it. That’s the thing." Amber didn’t even know why it mattered. She didn’t want to be someone’s lunch, it was just part of this new life package. One she could easily put a deadline on if she just went in the other room and took a look at her ID and did some snooping. Nibbles with a Vampire sounded like the safer bet. "Fine, do it whatever way you want to do it, I’m not going to complain." -04:50 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: He placed his hand on her shoulder again to flide his hand over her skin. "I could make you love me you know. Take your soul with nothing more than a whisper. But what use are lies to me, especially ones I generate myself?" he massaged her shoulder, fingertips digging into the muscle. He would show her what he meant… just once. -05:07 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: "I don’t doubt that you could make me. That’s kinda what bothers me the most. Not knowing what you make me do and what’s my own doing…" Cold hands on hot skin, that actually felt really really good. Amber tried not to show it. "And you don’t like bullshitting, so yeah… kind of arguing something we already agree on…?" -05:13 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "I’m not arguing." he said before his lips pressed briefly against hers the hand slipping to the back of her neck and tracing her spine before running through her hair, his cold lips kissing the corner of her mouth before tracing a line down her neck. Both hands found her shoulders and pushed the dress down her arms, exposing more of her chest, then he was pushing her onte her back. -05:20 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: This was…! Amber couldn’t call it unexpected, but that didn’t make it any less surprising or change the fact her stomach made the craziest flip. She was pretty sure she was flushing, cause she could feel it all the way down to her toes. And it sucked how aware she was about… everything! She squirmed, bracing a hand against his shoulder, debating whether or not she was going to call it quits. …she didn’t want to. "You’re making it really hard for me to think…" she muttered, far too softly for her liking. -05:26 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: "That’s the point." he whispered, pulling the dress down further to glide a hand over her breast and before his tongue ran up the other, then it was kissed and the kisses trailed up to her shoulder and became nips, tiny bites not enough to break the skin, his nails trailing over the other shoulder. -05:32 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: Holy hell. This was wrong, and bad, and the total opposite of common sense or good things. But oooh… her fingers curled in to his shoulder and she squirmed again. Trying to breathe and not breathe all at the same time. "That’s… uhm… uhm… Getting the point, now…" -05:35 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: He swapped shoulders and ran his nails over her other, the nips traveling over her throat to the one already scratched. His hips came to rest on top of hers and ground against them, and then his fangs sunk in, drawing out her bloot and he let out a shuddering sigh… how he hated that he loved this… as a vampire he couldn’t not. -05:40 Aug 20 Sigfried
Amber: Amber gasped, and it wasn’t from pain. She was very near writhing, digging her fingers in to his clothes until she could feel her own nails grinding against her palms. She hated loving this. There had to be something wrong with this, with her. But it was warm and hot in all in the best ways. Her murmured complaint coming out as nothing better than a incomprehensible groan. -05:46 Aug 20 Amber
Sigfried: His lips twitched against her skin as he drank her blood, how much he didn’t know… maybe he got carried away but when he pulled back he licked her wound and then loved up to push his lips into hers, his bloody, needy lips. Then he was relaxing on top of her. "And that wasn’t even trying." -05:51 Aug 20 Sigfried

Voodoo 001: Undead

[Amber was at the greatest party ever with her boyfriend and friends! ….except she doesn’t remember that at all!] -09:11 Aug 15
[Sigfried is old, much much older than he appears, and is standing in a small windowless, featureless room in front of the gir; shose name he doesn’t knowm after restoring her mind.] -09:13 Aug 15
Amber: She swayed on her feet a bit. Not all that surprising, because… um… Couldn’t really remember why just yet, but it would come to her soon enough. A hand rose up to her head, rubbing slowly in her confusion… She didn’t recognize this place at all. Or this guy. "….where is this? Who the hell are you?" Now a little more awareness was coming back. She took a step backwards and glanced suspiciously at the room. -09:21 Aug 15 Amber
Sigfried: "Good, it worked." he said before pulling out a pen light and shining it in her eye while holding it open with his thumb. "Do you know who you are?" he asked when he was done, his deep crimson eyes focusing in hers. "What do you remember last?" -09:25 Aug 15 Sigfried
Amber: Momentarily blinded, she scoffed and swatted his hand away. Another step was taken back. What did she remember? This was weird and wrong. Wrong enough she had goosebumps and had to run her hands up and down her arms. She took a glimpse down at her clothes for a clue… These clothes were ridiculous. Party! Something fun with lots of people. THIS place was sure as hell no party, and now she was squinting at his very strange colored eyes and stepping a few more steps backwards. "…I remember I dun belong here that’s for sure. Where is this and who are you?" It was the second time she asked! -09:30 Aug 15 Amber
Sigfried: He slipped the pen light into his pocket and looked at her. "You are confused, but you are perfectly safe." he asured her. "You are in Holywood. Los Angeles, whatever you want to call it." he said waving a hand dismissivly before he laned over to look apst her. "I wouldn’t step back any more if I were you. That book pedistal is an antique and the book far older." he clasped his hand behind his back and went back to looking at her. "Are you hungry?" -09:43 Aug 15 Sigfried
Amber: Absently, her hands went to her stomach as she took a quick look behind her. Another step away from tripping over something. She was hungry. Like, crazy starving hungry… She refused to acknowledge it. "I’m not… supposed to be in LA!" Still struggling to remember exactly she was last, though. Only small pieces of it was coming back, and none of it was really useful in curbing her alarm. SAFE was not what she was right now! "I should be in a hospital. Or talking to police right now. I shouldn’t be here." Now she was looking for an escape. Maybe she didn’t remember stuff, but she knew instincts! …and there weren’t any windows! That was totally weird! There was a door, though. She headed towards that, only wavering slightly on her feet. -09:50 Aug 15 Amber
Sigfried: He cut her off, but not to block her but to open the door for her, and what greeted her was a -very- large and open living area with a stunning vista of the city lights below. "You are hungry. You should eat." he said stepping through and moving to a phone that he picked up and ounched a few buttons. "Take a seat, you will have food, then we can talk about your future. Helf yourself to anything you want to drink, and if you remember anything, tell me." -09:56 Aug 15 Sigfried
Amber: She was wavering on her feet again, standing in the doorway looking completely perplexed. This wasn’t the sort of place she was expected. Nondescript, creepy rooms, yeah… out in some cabin or a basement maybe… This was a city skyline and a place that looked crazy expensive. Could kidnappers be super rich? Did she even know what real kidnappers were like? Walking seemed to be tricky, she was stiff and wobbly. Before she knew it, she was having a seat, whether she willed herself to do it or not. "I was at a party… " Lots of faces and costumes, and she was struggling to see if she could remember his. -10:03 Aug 15 Amber
Sigfried: "That must have been in New Oleans." he said before the call came through and he tossed the phone into her lap for her to order food, then he was pulling a bottle of chilled water out of the fridge and a glass and carrying them over to place them on the table in front of her. "Order anything you want, he will buy it and bring it here, after that… we will talk." -10:07 Aug 15 Sigfried
Amber: She looked at the phone in her lap like it might have been a bomb. Or a trap. Soon enough it was in her hand and at her ear, and she was placing a mumbled and confused order for spaghetti. She didn’t even know where she was ordering from or if that was a menu item, it was just the first thing to pop in to her head. Then it was right back to staring in confusion at the phone. "That’s right… for Mardi Gras. I went there for a party and… I hadn’t been there before." See, things were coming back, if waaaaaay slower than she wanted. She still couldn’t shake the creepie crawlies running through her skin. The phone was set on the table and she was rubbing her arms again, scowling about the whole thing. "Somebody is probably looking for me. My friends.. or my family." There were definitely friends! Yes! She remembered that too! -10:15 Aug 15 Amber
Sigfried: "That was four months ago." he said plainly, his hands clasped as he leaned forwards. "I do not know what happened, all I know is that you were put up for sale and I bought you." he paused to let that sink in, leaning back to adjust the colalr of his white silk shirt and look at the window. "I know you will be concerned, and confused by what is going on but I must repeat that you are safe. I don’t squander investments by hurting them or letting them fall into danger, but I did but you as a mindless zombie… I’m pleased I’ve been able to restore some of your personality." -10:23 Aug 15 Sigfried
Amber: "Bought me as a what..?" …okay, so he was crazy! That explained everything now. Maybe not how she got there, and why no one was looking out for her, but at least she knew she was with a crazy. "I can’t just lose four months and zombies aren’t even real! I dunno where you picked me up and it’s nice and all to keep repeating ‘you’re safe’ like I’m totally gonna believe that, but this isn’t cool… You can’t BUY people, or at least you shouldn’t especially if they are drunk or drugged at some stupid party." And now she was mad. Face flushing, frustrated, out-raged kind of mad. There was lots of drinking, for sure! But you don’t ditch your buddies and let them get picked up by strangers! Someone was going to get an earful. As soon as she recalled WHO. -10:30 Aug 15 Amber
Sigfried: He meshed his fingers and then leaned forwards again a bored and slightly frustrated look on his face. "You don’t believe me." he said. "I expected that, you’re not the first one I’ve bought who didn’t. I find the best way to change that is through demonstration. Stay where you are." he stood and walked back into the kitchen, then pulled a cleaver out of the drawer. Then walking back to the coutch he placed it on the table and upbuttoned the cuff on one of his sleeves and rolled it up before placing his arm on the table. "Cut my hand off." his voice was in the exact same tone as his other commands, because it wouldn’t work. -10:36 Aug 15 Sigfried
Amber: She watched curiously until he came back with the cleaver. For a moment wondering if he was going to start chopping parts off of her cause she was supposed to be a zombie. Putting his on hand on the table had her baffled. "You’re crazy, I’m not going going t-" What noooo, hand what are you doing. How did that damned cleaver get in her hand? "I’m not-!" She shrieked the same time she was swinging down. Whatever she hit, arm or not, she had her eyes squeezed shut and couldn’t see it. The cleaver had bounced off and slipped out of her hand to clatter somewhere on the floor. "Oh god, oh god… what the fucks is all this about!!" Maybe it was like illusionary magic tricks? Did he hypnotize her so when he said a key word she did things subconciously? "I am so out of here! You’re a lunatic!" -10:48 Aug 15 Amber
Sigfried: He leaned over to pick up the cleaver and then looked at her. "No you’re not, you’re going to watch." he said before lifting the blade over his head and swinging down. he hit right on his arm and with the handle ov thre cleaver stayed in his hadn the blade boundes up, flipped three timed in the air before landing an embetting a corner into the table looking like the hood of a car after hitting a tree. "I was never in any danger." he said lifting his arm and hloding it up for her to see the undamages skin, even the hairs on his arm were undisturbed. -10:55 Aug 15 Sigfried
Amber: Watching wasn’t going to happen. But it did anyway! And with every hit she cringed and squirmed in her seat. Waiting to see sprays of blood and gore or… anything. There was just a messed up cleaver and an unharmed crazy person. "It’s a trick. …of some sort. A trick or I am dreaming or something. This stuff doesn’t happen." Was it too late to get up and run for it? Call the police? Call the police! She went reaching for that phone. -10:59 Aug 15 Amber
Sigfried: Before her hand reached the phone he had a new command for her. "Go and get your food, thre will be no need to pay anything." two seconds later the doorbell rang and he reached out to pull the cleaver blade from the table and turn it over in his hands. This one was being stubborn and skittish, maybe he would ahve to get down to brass tacks. -11:08 Aug 15 Sigfried
Amber: Up she went to fetch the door before she even realized she was following an order. Her pace slowed when she reached it, but she still answered. Giving the person there some sort of bewildered look, yet not being able to blurt out anything along the lines of "I’ve been kidnapped!" or "Save me!". Once the door was closed and she was returning, clutching a hot bag of food like it was some sort of shield, she was right back to scowling again. Bewildered, but stubborn scowling. "I don’t like this. You’re messing with me somehow, and I seriously don’t like it." Amber plopped on to a seat. Hating this or not, her stomach was now growling loud enough for her to hear it. No matter what was going on. she needed food for strength! She rustled through the bag. "….Amber!" -11:19 Aug 15 Amber
Sigfried: "I told you, when I bought you you were a zombie, not the hollywood style, the voodoo style. You’re still bound to follow my commands, I really don’t want to have to use that, so eat and enjoy your order… Amber, while I’ll tell you why you’re not still and doll-like anymore. I want to offer you a job." -11:23 Aug 15 Sigfried
Amber: "Voodoo…?" That seemed to spark some sort of vague recollection… but it was gone just as quickly before she could remember how or why that was important. She ate slowly despite her hunger, keeping her eyes on him and still very plainly not trusting a word he said. "Why? Why buy a… zombie.. and then make her unzombie and offer her a job? How long have you had me…?" She still wasn’t so sure she had been unconcious for four months, but her disbelief of things were getting a little jarred around. -11:26 Aug 15 Amber
Sigfried: "About nine weeks." he said. "People buy zonbies for lots of reasons, slaves, glorified sex dolls, ritual sacrifice… my main problam with them is that they can only follow very basic instructions and use absolutely no imagination while doing so. Thier personalities and creativity is gone and the only use I have for those is food, or boring and unsatisfying sex. I need an assistant, not a robot." -11:32 Aug 15 Sigfried
Amber: That was a little over two months, which meant someone else had her first and – cough! Near choking on a bite, she reached out to grab the water and take a big swallow. "…and what exactly did YOU do with me for nine weeks? None of the sex stuff? No. You didn’t. Don’t tell me. …what do you mean by food? Are you a canibal or something? Why does a canibal need an assistant?" Or a zombie for that matter, but she wasn’t exactly doing great on the piecing things together part. -11:38 Aug 15 Amber
Sigfried: "No, I didn’t, like I said it’s glorified masterbation." he said looking at her. "I was getting you wo where you are not, able to think and remember things, and eating." he tilted his hed to look at her shoulder. "The only reason you’re dressed like that is because that is what you were wearing when you were zombified so I needed it to undo part of the spell. Do you want me to show you where you’ve been sleeping? There is a selection of clothes there that fit you. After you eat." He stood and walked up to the glass window, no reflection even though the interiour of the room was brightly lit. "And no, a canibal eat thier own kind." -11:55 Aug 15 Sigfried
Amber: "So I guess that counts you being a zombie off the list…" Whelp, that explained being in the same clothes for months. Now that she had eaten, she was feeling much, much better. No more of that foggy headedness and her limbs didn’t feel so heavy and unresponsive. Couldn’t remember a damned useful thing, but this was a good start. "I don’t need any clothes, I am not going to stay. Not that I’m not super greatful about the whole unzombifying me thing, but… you don’t own me. You can’t own a person. And what kind of sense does it make buying a zombie for an assistant anyway? Why didn’t you just put out a job add in the paper? You can’t just buy girls off the street. And I’m sure someone is looking for me and missing me." -12:00 Aug 16 Amber
Sigfried: He turned abck to face her. "I did not unzombify you." he said with the traces of a laugh. "I simply removed part of it, and yes I do own you. I didn’t wan in money but something infinately more valuable and I’m not going to waste my investment." he was looking at her intently, she was having a lot of misconceptions about her situation that he was going to correct. "I want an assistant but if you don’t want to cooperate then you can always return to your previous state and serve me like that except maybe I’ll meave you aware of what if going on around you only trapped behind a subserviant zombie mind that you can’t control." -12:08 Aug 16 Sigfried
Amber: Amber looked down at herself. She seemed pretty alive and not zombied in her opinion. There was that vague memory about voodoo again, and her mind scrambling at trying to recall how that worked. It wasn’t coming. Which left a very annoyed Amber standing up to square off with her new ‘owner’, hands on her hips and staring him down like she had shrieked earlier about the whole cleaver thing. "You can’t tell me you own me and expect me to cooporate! Or think a few nice things means I’m going to be all happy and obedient cause some dark knight saved me off the street! That’s not how it works. And you’re not going to get away with threatening me either. I might not remember anything clearly yet, but I will. And I can remember plenty well enough I don’t let jerks manipulate me. Besides, you already said you don’t want an unresponsive doll. So obviously none of this is going to work." -12:14 Aug 16 Amber
Sigfried: "Dolls are still useful to me." he said "A man has to eat after all. I hold no pretenses of being a hero, Amder. I do not subscribe to your niave senses of morality and importance of things we cannot remember. Whne it comes down to it memories are all we have. Now, you could go stumbling down to a police station without knowing who you are and witht he world believing you’re dead so they have no idea how to get you back to a life you know nothing about and friends who abandoned you… or you can listed to what I have to offer, a much better job than you could ever hope to have gotten otherwise which will leave you with contact that will serve you well if I ever do let you go and you get your memories back. Concider it an internship until I feel I’ve made back on my investment." he turned back to look over the city lights and placed a hand on the glass. "Do you see that? All of that… I run it." -12:26 Aug 16 Sigfried
Amber: "It sounds like making a deal with a devil and I don’t like making deals with people I don’t know or trust." See, she remembered that part too. Amber had trust issues! Now if she can remember why! …still curiosity seemed to be a thing of hers too and before long she was inching her way across the room at a safe distance from her, looking out over the city. "You can’t run all of L.A. Unless you’re like.. the governor or something. Shadow government, I don’t know." A soft huff slipped out. He could pretty much tell her anything at this point and it wouldn’t matter, cause it’s not like she knew the difference. "Okay, what is this big awesome offer and job then? Something you needed to by a girl for?" -12:40 Aug 16 Amber
Sigfried: "It didn’t have to be a girl, specifically, but someone who would go out during the day running erands, so yes, you will be going out there on your own." he didn’t sound worried. "You will meet with the heds of all the major film studios, you will collect documents, and you will deliver messages. You will be paid for this, generously but you will continue to live here. Your money can be saved for when you return to whatever old life you had. For all of this there is only one concession, and the reason I wanted a girl." -12:48 Aug 16 Sigfried
Amber: "You had to BUY a girl for this? Because why? Because you are a weird not human person…?" That at least had sunk in. Unless the whole arm thing was illusion, but she was finally getting the point that it wasn’t. Something was wrong with her, he wasn’t normal, and a really annoying little part of her was screaming about how great a job in L.A would be compared to her own life plan. She didn’t even know what it WAS to know it was better! "I guess… it doesn’t sound too bad. Better than staying in a hospital while I try to remember things…" -12:55 Aug 16 Amber
Sigfried: I need someone who I know will follow my instructions." he said looking at her, and taking a step closer. "While I do have the power to turn people into servants with thier own wills and initiative I do not enjoy doing so." he smiled taking another step towards her. "So you’re taking the job? Even though you are correct that I am not human? You don’t even know the concession I’m asking for." -01:01 Aug 16 Sigfried
Amber: Amber squinted at him and shifted on her feet a bit, but didn’t shirk away. "You said I’m safe here and I can leave when I want to, so long as I do my job. I just figured your concession thing is because you’re… well… clearly needing someone trust worthy that isn’t going to out you to public… Right?" -01:07 Aug 16 Amber
Sigfried: He stopped right in front of her and placed a hand on her shoulder. "I already know you’ll listen to me, the concession is because I am not human." he said staring into her eyes. "Do not be frightened, I promise you that I will only take enough to make you feel a little fient." His arms slipped around her and his head weaved to kiss her neck. "Be still." Another kiss, and then another, then his teeth sunk in." -01:17 Aug 16 Sigfried
Amber: She was too confused to do anything but be still, had turned furiously red at the touch of his lips against her neck, but it was the bite that startled her the most! Amber tensed and it was her instint to shove him away, but her fingers only curled in to the fabric of his clothes instead. She couldn’t seem to do anything other than the ordered be still, which left her giving a soft frustrated sound. …Wait, ooo, maybe it… didn’t feel too bad. Kinda of warm and- what the fuck, what was she thinking! Another frustrated hmmrph squeaked out! -01:25 Aug 16 Amber
Sigfried: He licked her neck when he was done and his arms supported her. "You can move now." he whispered into her ear. "I’ll show you to your room…" there was a beeping and the automatic blinds started to close as the barest hint og brightening appeared on the horizon. "It’s mater than I thought it was…" -01:36 Aug 16 Sigfried
Amber: "You’re a vampire?" Her voice was shakey and so were her legs. So much for having control over her limbs again. He wanted personal assistant FOOD! Oh hey, formerly zombie girl, he’s a great job offer. All you have to do is be dinner every night. Amber was right back to scowling at him. "How is Amber ala Tartar supposed to be SAFE? Who wants their dinner to talk back to them?!" -01:40 Aug 16 Amber
Sigfried: His bloosy lips formed into a grin. "Yes, I am." he said licking the redness away. "And you are safe, I wouldn’t hurt my assistant and food source, would I?" he looked into her eyes and narrowed his. "It is true you’d be a better leam if you just stood there and took it but that’s a sacrifice I have to make. I don’t enjoy having to eat in this way and I’m pretty sure you don’t want me to buy another zombie just to feel on." -01:48 Aug 16 Sigfried
Amber: "It’s bad enough to bought one." Now there were a million questions to ask. How old was he. How many times had her bought people just to be dinner. Did he hunt for dinner? Were they usually willing and she was just a rare pain in the ass? Amber was dizzy, annoyed, confused, and completely without any control over the situation. "…I guess it is what it is. You’re not going to have any vampire parties with me as the buffet, though. Fuck that." -01:52 Aug 16 Amber
Sigfried: "That needs me to know other vampires who wouldn’t kill me if they had the chance." he said taking her hand and moving towards a passage. "I’m sure you don’t mind if I speed things along, the sun is rising and I need rest." he stopped at a door and pushed it open, was well furnished and had a view of a large, well-kept garden. "This is your room, clothes are in the closet. You can help yourself to anything in the kitchen or order in. Do not look for me during the day, that is my one rule." -01:57 Aug 16 Sigfried
Amber: "What if I need to ask questions? Or if there is an emergency? ….What I am supposed to do all day today!" So he was going to wake her up after being a zombie for four months and then abandon her to go… be a sleeping vampire! "I just wander around not escaping?" -02:02 Aug 16 Amber
Sigfried: He walked into the room with her and sat her down. "You will need rest, you’ve been awake for twelve hours while I westored your mind, after that you can do what you want so long as you’re around when I wake. We’ll deal with your expenses tomorrow," he stood, leaving her sitting. "As for questions, write them down to ask later." -02:13 Aug 16 Sigfried
Amber: "You just make it sound so clear and easy." Sarcasm was clearly one of her things too. Maybe she was tired. She was also scared to close her eyes and then wind up in Moscow or something sold to starving werewolves, or some equally crazy place. Or maybe she would wake up and realize this was all just a drug induced dream? "Fine. Make sure I am here at sundown, check…" -02:17 Aug 16 Amber
Sigfried: He placed his hadn where he had bitten her. "You’re going to be a difficult one… but remember, I alwasy keep my promises." then he was turning around and walking out, closing the door behind him. -02:22 Aug 16 Sigfried
