WHO: Alecto Carrow (as Allison Karras) & Rabastan Lestrange.
WHERE: Arachnida in Knockturn Alley
WHEN: BACKDATED to after this exchange. (I am sorry it's dated so far back, but... I haven't had a chance to post this until I got my computer back.)
WHAT: Rabastan see's Alecto for the first time in five years.
RATING: High, c'mon! Two Death Eaters? High.
Arachnida was not the most popular of shops in Diagon Alley, but as a child it was always a favorite of Alecto's. She loved spiders, all those creepy crawlies that usually sent other girls into fit of shrieks and screams made Alecto happy. Spiders fascinated her, how they moved, how they were literally a silent killer, laying out their web coaxing bugs into it's silky tangle. Out of all the species that Alecto could name off the top of her head, spiders were at the top. It was only fitting that after was said and done with the Death Eaters that Alecto own the giant spider shop that made her so happy as a child. The only thing in her way of achieving her dream was the owner. It didn't take much to "convince" him to give up the shop, after all, once Alecto had her mind set on something nothing was going to stop her from obtaining it. With the previous owner on a permanent holiday, Alecto set out to lay claim on the shop. Under the alias of Allison Karras, Alecto became the new owner. Not many people in Knockturn Alley took notice, and those that did, didn't care enough to question her. Alecto, or rather, Allison didn't draw attention to herself, and the shop - no matter what management it was under - wasn't soaring in sales. Giant spiders weren't really in high demand, and Alecto knew that.
Seated behind the counter towards the back of the store, the constant sound of scratching along the walls filled her ears and made her smile. "Oh my pretty darlings," She cooed towards the invisible spiders, her dark eyes glanced around her, "Don't worry..." Her purred softly as she felt one furry leg land on her shoulder. Lifting her fingers, her held her palm out for the spider to crawl down from her shoulder and rest in her hand. It was MASSIVE, just it's body was the size of her hand with her fingers spread out. It's legs balanced precarious on it's tiny perch as eight glossy eyes peered at the woman. "Silly thing, the sun has barely set, you can't leave yet." A broad smile curled on her lips, as she tilted her head to the side, lifting her fingers, she ran it over the front legs of the spider.
"I have a friend coming," Her voice was low as she spoke to the spider. "He hasn't seen the new me." Laughing to herself, she watched as the spider leaped from her hand into a hidden crevice in the store. Arachnida was not exactly designed with customers in mind, it was dark... very dark. Spider didn't like the light too much, especially giant spiders. There was the occasional candle flickering and casting dark shadows over the walls. The entire place was lined with cages, but most of them were empty. The few that did have something in them were usually shaking and shrieking with carnal sounds. The wall, or what could be seen of them were wooden, and worn in, scratches were visible under the low lights and webs full of cocoons and decaying bugs. The store smelled of burning sage, with a distinct hint of coppery rot, like decaying bodies. Leaning back in her seat, Alecto has learned how to ignore the smell, and her eyes have become accustomed to the lack of light as well.
Three candles were flickering light across the counter, illuminating her changed features. It was a face that was unrecognizable to anyone but her brother. While visually she has changed, her voice still had that distinct tone to it, and her laugh was definitely something she needed to work on. Alecto really couldn't wait until Rabastan showed up, the surprise across his face about her appearance was going to be priceless.
