Elsewhere. "Sir we will be arriving shortly." "Aye. Thanks lad." An older man thanked his driver.. Sitting in the backseat of a luxurious sedan was an older man in dressed head to toe in both style and decadence. His appearance, voice and manners all refined almost to perfection, his aura commanded your attention. Yet he was currently smiling ear to ear like a giddy school boy. "It's been some time since I've seen you this excited sir. Are you sure it's okay for you to arrive without announcing yourself ahead of time?" "Bah. Now where would the fun be in that?" "Well I'm just saying sir. Someone of your stature should be recognized. You're far from a nobody." "Aye I suppose one could argue that, but I've never been one to enjoy my status. Besides there's a young man I wish to surprise." Backstage of the charity event. "Alright hurry now. We only have so much time to fix this disaster." Evelyn stated glancing back over her shoulder while maintaining a brisk pace. "Wait..
Present day."Evelyn!" Tatianna cried out in excitement holding her arms out preparing for a hug. Then there was Aurora. Every time the spotlight managed to find it's way to her, her silhouette managed to shrink. But as soon as the subject changed or Tatianna managed to deflect it away from her, Aurora would begin to recover. But this moment? Her silhouette shrank so much she could barely even be seen as a shadow.'That's Evelyn Constantine! That's Evelyn Constantine!' Aurora was currently in melt down mode. Her face was a bright tomato red. It wouldn't surprise her in the least if steam was visibly bellowing from her ears.'T-Two s-super models... Wait no three! AND I LOOK LIKE THIS!? Dear god Any other day I would pay to be in the presence of these women, but why today of all days do I have to look like a train wreck!?' Aurora clenched her teeth and eyes closed trying her best to prevent tears welling up in her eyes and furthering her disappointing appearance. Her current wardrobe,
"Think you can fuck with us !? Both of you can go to hell!" Sven roared charging at Collen. He was committed to his actions. Once in a while a little blood just had to be spilled. Of course it never did look good in the headlines, and would bring heat down upon all of the gangs in the area. But this was all acceptable. Police attention could be bought, and even if they were to launch an investigation, there was only one thing worse. A loss of respect. If the people you stand above don't respect you, soon the payments begin coming up short, then they'll stop altogether. Soon enough individuals, and neighborhoods will stop complying. That would leave you with two options. First uproot and find another neighborhood who doesn't know any better and crack a few skulls so to speak. The second. You crack every skull that speaks out against you. But at that point you've allowed a wound to fester, and it's only going to get worse. Instead of keeping a firm hand with one or two individuals from
"Huh?" Crutches stood dumbstruck. He had never once so much as uttered a word to Sven let a alone beat him to a pulp and send his car flying into traffic. 'Shit I'm still recovering from having my ass beaten to a pulp, I'm not gonna go out looking for a fight in this condition!' Sven smirked pointing his nose in the air. "As you can see it was a close fight. After kicking his ass I even showed mercy... I was the bigger man, chose to walk away of my own free will.. Then the bastard sucker punched me! And while my head was still spinning he began raining down blow after blow. Absolutely no honor among adversaries. 'No honor among adversaries!? I was never an adversary to begin with! I mean I won't say it's something I wouldn't do, but damn! If I'm going to be accused at least allow me to throw a few punches!' He thought as his mouth hung open bringing a whole to level of dumb to his expression. "Huh?" Tatianna uttered in complete dismay. 'I expected Sven to pull some shady shit in r
"So who are we looking for anyway?"...!!!'Oh shit! I hadn't even thought of that! What the hell am I going to tell Aurick!? Oh hey by the way that's the person who whooped my ass, sent my car flying into traffic, fingered me to the person who's car it hit, and the police! By the way it's also a girl who maybe weighs one hundred and ten pounds top!' Sven thought to himself, his eyes squeezed shut, clamping his hands to his head shaking it side to side. Sure Aurick was a long time friend, and if there's anyone who would possibly let this go it would be him. That being said some times friends are the ones to give you the most shit above anyone else. The closer you were, chances are the more shit you'll take."ERRr.... About that... " Sven mumbled.'Man I'll just have to bite the bullet and tell him what happened. Obviously neglecting to mention the information about how I've been extorting the boss's clients after their debts were paid.'Sven sighed and began glancing side to side loo
"This is bullshit I'm telling you it wasn't my fault! RAAAAH!" Sven roared raking his dinner tray back and forth across the jail cell bars he currently found himself comfortably forced into, and when we say comfortably it was probably as comfortable as sitting on an angry porcupine. "As much as I'm enjoying these fine one star accommodations... LET ME THE FUCK OUT!""For the love of Christ all mighty will you shut up already!" An officer sitting at his desk groaned. Unfortunately he was the lowest ranked officer in their precinct therefore got the desk closest to the jail cells housing all of the lovely intoxicated and angry people who would love nothing more than to shove a stun gun up his nostril. "You know why you're in here!""No! No I don't know why I'm in here I'm telling you it's that -""It was your car that rolled onto a main road correct?""Well yes but it was -""There was an awful lot of money in your vehicle for someone who's records show as unemployed.""So what!? That's
"Ты хочешь снова упомянуть мою семью!? Я засуну свой кулак тебе в задницу и вытащу твою голову оттуда!" (You want to mention my family again!? I'm going shove my fist up your ass and pull your head back out of it! ) Tatianna roared pivoting on the pads of her foot and driving her knee hard into his ribs.CRACK!Though it wasn't super loud, there was certainly the audible sound of something fracturing or breaking."NYAAAAH!" Sven cried out in agony. He was usually the one doling out the beating not receiving them. To pour a little salt on the wound, it happened this was the first time he ever had anything either broken or fractured. Tatianna on the other hand was trying her best to control her laughter at his noises. She may have seen an anime or two in her time and couldn't help but feel his sounds were that of a cat girl doing the pawing motion.'If this is what passes for a gangster these days I don't ever want to meet who they consider the weak.' She shrugged."NYoo BEITCHEEEEEEE
A few minutes prior to Tatianna's encounter. "Yes boss.. Yes I'm on my way to McDonalds right now.""Ah is it the one the Devine girl works at?" A gruff yet smooth Russian accent came through the phone's speaker."Yes boss that's the one. What can I say it's my favorite." The man driving responded"Haha I can imagine why. It's quite the view if you know what I mean. But that reminds me, their debt was paid off I believe two months ago, you made sure to tell them and give my condolences about Mr. Devine right?""Of course boss. They were very touched by your words and the fact you were willing to knock down their debt to the exact amount borrowed after his death. Very generous if I do say so myself.""Good, good. Keep up the good work Sven. Though I lost that extra money, word will spread how compassionate and great Yuri is. People will flock to me for loans!""Hehe no doubt boss. Ah I'm here now." The man named Sven declared pulling into a parking spot shutting off his car. Sven look
"It's true! I had absolutely no desire to become a model! I was perfectly content working at McDonalds minding my own business when someone almost forced me to become a model." Tatianna declared with a straight face. ...No one present truly knew Tatianna which was currently their biggest dilemma. Assume she's joking and laugh? You could but what if she was being serious? Wouldn't laughing make them downright insensitive?'Sometimes I can't help myself.' Tatianna smirked watching the group look back and forth squirming under the imaginary pressure. "I'm joking. Well about being forced at the very least. Unable to maintain her straight face Tatianna emit a small chuckle her beautiful smile returning to her face.Everyone had been staring at her slack jawed especially James. He himself had never encountered any career models who hadn't grown up with that burning desire to launch a career, who wasn't willing to fight tooth and nail to follow their heart! 'This woman had no desire but r
