"So..this is the black market everyones been up in arms about..at least we seem to be in the right place. Sebast- "Ciel scratched his head and looked to the ground. Blast..I'd forgotten that I sent him to do...suppose I should be fine here without him for a few minutes. Might as well have a look around. I wonder if this is where i'll find them...Ciel looked around suspiciously pursuing the the corridor without hesitation. Just another smokey tavern full of shameless street commoners. He was never fond of this sort of thing but he must follow through with his search none the less.

As the sun began to set, ushering in a new edge of darkness to the woods surrounding the Malevolence, the muffled thudding sounds of the creatures massive paws striking the ground lingered in the chilled air. With every breath these massive lungs took would send a plume of white fog drifting up over the creatures head and flowing down the length of its sleek torso. It's large agile frame snaked its way through the trunks of the trees lining its unknown path, it's flanks brushing up against the bark,leaving stray tufts of fur caught against the rough surface as it weaved. It's nostrils flared with its mouth partially open, the scents of the seasons changing enveloping its wild nature. Dragoda were creatures of habit, this one in particular had taken a fancy to the establishment for quite some time. The main reason behind this was not only the energy, but the fact this creature was somehow tied to it. It's predecessors had frequented the Malevolence for years, having shifted homes after the first one had come to...an untimely close, it had reopened sometime later but hadn't quite been the same.

It had only been within the last few years the establishments forest had been visited by more and more wolf like creatures. The Dragoda were a cross breed, the outcome of the twin wolves Syfr and Rys as well as something...bigger, feline like. With Rys' body mass and Syfr's sleek frame, the unlikely duo had been visited by their mistress' messanger, creating a new breed of creature. Dragoda were quite clever creatures, they could communicate outside their own kind if they so choose, similar to invading a persons thoughts with images or pictures.

As the creature ran, it's paws muffling the sound of twigs snapping beneath its weight, it wove through tree trunks and sprang over shrubs and bushes. Indeed the creature may have been taunting her, in a way it may have been a test. For this creature wasn't quite sure what her intentions may be.

Zetsumei had stamina. She had assumed at first this creature had the stamina of a cheetah or panther. They could keep up a good run for a bit, then they tired down. She was wrong when it came to the creature she was chasing. It was not giving out. If anything, it felt like it was getting faster. Or was she getting slower. This won't do. She was at a physical disadvantage. A bipedal like her was not going to catch this dog-cat by normal means. It was time to play this smart.

Zetsumei lunged forward, sinking her hands into the earthen soil. Upon contact with it and a closure of her eyes, she could read the imagery of the entire ground, particularly the creature running across it. Tremorsense, the ability to sense vibrations throughout anything touching the ground. Even down to the detail of the blood running through the creature's veins. The explosion of its muscle tendons were powerful. She could feel the elegance of its run. It was no wonder she could not catch up to it. Its entire body was built with running in mind. It was an excellent hunter, no doubt, and she was only fortunate to not catch it in a hunting mood. So what if she managed to make it angry?

The girl spoke with the earth. And the earth listened. A wall of rock rose up ten feet high and five feet wide in front of the running dog-cat. It was tough and thick, strong enough to stop this thing should it go running into it.

The ground would heave a great tremor, the vibrations tickling the massive paw pads with each thud before the massive wall of dirt erupted. Clumps of dirt, grass and dead leaves followed its wake, falling into the canopy of trees as it rained down. The muscles in this creatures hind legs would tense, screaming with adrenaline that hadn't yet been tapped. As the wall erupted to its full hieght, the muscles sprang like a wound up spring as the creature jumped up. The momentum would send the creature into the air, it's front paws striking the wall as its claws dug in allowing it to scale the remainder of the wall. With a flick of those twin tails, it was up and over the wall, landing on the other side with a massive thud of its paws. If the wall had come down or she came closer, she would see the creature standing against the tree line on the other side of the wall. Golden eyes would watch her patiently, this was no ordinary human..

OoC: Well now. UPS finally got my new address correct, and two weeks later I finally manage to establish internet here at the apartment. I still work 10 hour days, 5 to 7 days a week so I'll attempt to post in every chance I get.

I appreciate everyone's patience, and lingering intrigue into my small role play community thread.

IC:

Time could often be described as a fluent endeavor, water trickling from a progressive source much how a ripple blossoms. In this manner Leonardo had seemed to lost a portion of his own time, still seated behind the bar even if he hadn't been previously. In that moment he found himself returned to the current events of his establishment, not in an immediate rush to reassert himself yet rather caressing deep pools of scarlet as if in observation of actions that took place outside of the room occupied. Earth spoken too, his earth, coaxed by a source that entertained and made him weary of violence. Of course he couldn't stamp his foot down at every transgression threatened against those that visited his secluded haven, the Malevolence often a chaotic place that both harbored and drew dangers beyond his own aptitude for carnage.

Much how one comfortably watched television with no real expectation beyond something to do at the time so would Leo observe those both within and without his building. Dzaek true to his word seemed quite capable of welcoming the few guests that found their way in, a sentiment the owner wouldn't soon forget as he was still not quite use to others aiding him without continued bribery or coaxing. Tilting his head oddly a moment as if to recollect something forgotten the seductive male would abruptly begin to pat down his pockets with a curious expression, digging from his jacket and pants a single hand rolled narcotic blunt and aged silver zippo lighter which he'd put to quick work between his lips with a sparked flame from the zippo. Flicking it closed after to be absently pocketed Leo savored a long drag while dragging his gaze from outside to his immediate surroundings with a pleasant smile.

If the wall had come down or she came closer, she would see the creature standing against the tree line on the other side of the wall. Golden eyes would watch her patiently, this was no ordinary human..

The creature saw nothing but wall in front of its vision as it rested in its new place for at least ten seconds. Nothing was happening. Then, the wall itself returned back into the ground, pulling itself to reveal Zetsumei walking toward it. She did not get close. Instead, she stopped what was supposedly fifteen feet away from it. Her scarf moved in the tiny bit of wind that blew across the space, her red eyes never leaving the vision of the lingering beast. She could have done a number of things after that which would have cornered the thing easily. She could have created more walls of rocks until eventually she had sandwiched it in. She could have made the ground into mud and pulled the beast in using a quicksand. She could have even traveled underground and grabbed the little cat-dog's paws and pull them into the earth to trap them betwist rock and stone. So many possibilities, and here she was standing there doing not a thing.

A sigh left her lips, the girl sitting down indian-style where she was standing. Her hands rested onto her knees. Zetsumei had suddenly grown bored of the exchange. Just a few minutes ago, she had attacked the beast simply out of some fun and challenge. But now, with the possibility of winning the chase having came to mind, it made her suddenly lose interest. She never pounced it simply to try to subdue it. She did it to test if she was able to, never quite answering it completely, but tasting the capabilities nonetheless. Then again, who knew what other powers belonged to the creature. It may very well be able to do more than just claw and run. Ah, well. She will have to find that out another time when she felt like being motivated again. She had nothing against the creature so felt no need to continue to thwart its existence.

An eerie silence fell within their man made clearing if upturned earth and stone. Satisfied, the large creature would sit back upon its hind legs and raise its paw, continuing to groom itself as if the previous exchange hadn't halted its plans. All the while,those golden hues watched the girl sitting across it. Surely the creature could fight if it had decided to.. But merely this creatures job at the time was to observe. As it's black forked tongue swept across its massive paw, those large tapered ears swivelled in the direction of something new. As the creature made no rise to move it was obvious it didn't see this new comer as a threat, for it continued to lick its paw as the faint sound of chuckling could be heard drifting through the chilled air. The very sound within its center enough to chill a man to his bones. The darkness within the canopy shrouding a new occupant to this game.

Located within a tree, this creature sat with her back against the rough bark of the tree. One knee bent while the other leg was left to dangle. The gentle chime of chains drifted through the silence with the movement of this new creature, the dark hood of her cloak pulled over her head, shrouding her scarred face within shadow. Two rather large lumps rested upon her back, the cloak merely masking what they were, save for the chains that trailed out from beneath it. An arm rested upon the bent knee as the other rose to bring the shard of bone from her lips.

Carnivaal Crii sat within this tree, those multicoloured prism eyes sparkling with madness. Her tone held the humor like that of a child plucking the wings of a fly. Highly amused yet oddly venomous for having never met the other woman in her life. The woman would make no other move as she spoke, shadows hiding those strange eyes as she watched her.

" Look what we have here... Demenageur de terre. "

Another chuckle, the shard being returned as those eyes lingered onward. She wouldn't make a move at the moment, merely observing.

The laughter caused her eyes to shift immediately. No cackle like that was from anything normal. And the vicinity of it meant it was closer than it sounded. Close enough for her to see the shadowy obscure figure in the trees. Her eyes took in the details that she could only pick out. Whoever it was, they were another bad resident of this area. Yes, this included herself and the beast sitting across from her. Was she another who came to join the fun? It seemed activity provoked activity. Sharks move when blood wets their waters. The sense of excitement plagues their senses and draws in all those caught by its allure.

Zetsumei shifted a bit in place, but she did not move from her spot nor do anything significant to show alarm. Her right hand patted the ground, however, in three successive slaps. The dirt stirred up from each hit, but it was nothing to be afraid of. No different from kicking sand up from running too hard.

Zetsumei finally spoke. Her voice was not sweet like a feminine doll dressed up in dresses and ribbons. Hers had a roughness to it. Low and docile. One could still hear the female within it. She did not sound like no boy.

"Come down. The earth is softer to sit on."
