Who: Delilah and Open When: Tuesday Where: Diogenes Club Warning: TBD
The place wasn't what she'd consider a usual, but most places she went to had stars behind their name and she never paid there. She'd always considered it ludicrous to pay so much for so little food, but it wasn't her money to waste on it. This she visited out of desire. When she'd first learned how to actually read there was a thrill behind it. It hadn't left, and this place almost felt safe.
Almost because she hardly felt able to ever put her guard down.
Casually she found a seat and removed her jacket. She had other ways to relax and libraries didn't suit her and she'd wanted some company that she wasn't charging and wouldn't expect anything from her. Once her order came she settled her fingers around the mug and leaned against the wall. Usually she kept herself a certain kind of poised, but right now she just wanted to relax, even a little.

He still hadn't gone to visit his father, and he knew he should probably make his way to Chinatown soon and rectify that, but not tonight. Tonight, he was going to go out and have a drink.
He was walking down the street, when he passed a building that seemed to be steeped in all kinds of immortal energy. It made him curious, so he drew closer. The name made him smile, he always appreciated a good nod to literature. So he stepped inside. The first room he entered didn't seem to have that same energy, so he simply followed the trail. There was an intimidating-looking man outside a second door, but he didn't stop him as he tried to enter, so he pushed it open and slipped inside. There were less people in here, and it seemed to be the source of all the energy, including a pretty woman with dark hair sitting by herself.
He ordered a double scotch, neat, and sipped it before walking over to talk to her. "Pardon me if I'm interrupting," he began. "But I could tell that you're...like me, and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind my joining you." (Reply to this)(Thread)

She smiled easily. He was immortal, obviously, and powerful. And Not Christian which automatically earned him more points.
"Of course," she motioned to the seat in front of her studying the man for a moment before extending her hand. "Delilah," and she was aware her tale wasn't always known, "of Sorek. Harlot and giver of haircuts if you follow the big book of nonsense." (Reply to this)(Parent) (Thread)
takeyourpain 2012-03-06 03:23 am (local) (link) "Vicodin," he offered in return, shaking her hand. "And I'm going to guess by 'big book of nonsense' you mean the Bible." He took the seat across from her. "But no, I don't follow it. Never really had much use for it. It always seemed overly restrictive and, as time went by, outdated." He shrugged. "But that's just my opinion." (Reply to this)(Parent) (Thread)
darkdelilah 2012-03-06 03:27 am (local) (link) She'd heard of him. Curious to know things like that could be in a human shape. With a smile she released his hand and set hers on the table. "I think we'll get along fine, seeing we agree on that. Some do not agree but either way. It's my fifteen minutes and I'll take it."
She tilted her head, "I did not think things like yourself could be in a human shape. Funny how mortals can make us." (Reply to this)(Parent) (Thread)
takeyourpain 2012-03-06 04:42 am (local) (link) He smiled. "Well good. I've looked into a few times, and sometimes I wonder how it got so popular for so long. But take your time where you can find it, I say."
He shrugged, a small smile on his face. "I like to think of it as the universe having a sense of humor. Whether or not it's actually amusing remains to be seen. But I'm here, and I try and muddle through. Mostly doing what I can for those who need me. Occasionally wondering why grumpy doctors make me laugh, although they probably shouldn't. Like you said, funny how they make us." (Reply to this)(Parent) (Thread)
darkdelilah 2012-03-06 04:47 am (local) (link) She laughed, "good marketing and PR I suppose. Don't ask me. I'm but one of the many lessons in how women are evil." She rolled her eyes, "but I take what I can."
She nodded, "I agree. Curious still but then all of us are curious in our own way. We all have tricks and tips." She smiled again, "how long have you been human shaped?" (Reply to this)(Parent) (Thread)
takeyourpain 2012-03-06 05:22 am (local) (link) He snorted into his scotch. "Touche. And I think sometimes people who spout the 'women are evil' rhetoric forget they're only here because of women. Logic escapes them, I think."
"I've noticed that," he agreed. "Survival skills for living when your life doesn't end. Useful things to know, I think. As for how long, it's been...92 years, this year," he replied, doing some quick mental math. "Not very long compared to some, but I'm alright with that. And you? How long have you been carrying the mortal coil?" (Reply to this)(Parent) (Thread)
darkdelilah 2012-03-06 05:29 am (local) (link) She gave a wry grin, "oh dear haven't you heard? Only men are important." Her very demeanor showed how much she disagreed with that, but it was one of the many issues she had.
"Young," then she blinked and laughed. "sorry. And since literal biblical times? I remember where I did my job but I don't know if that was real. I was there when the good old book became popular. Decades. Generations. I forget. I'm older then some and younger then others."
