He pushed back his plate, the flatware resting neatly across it. He picked up the glass of wine, and sipped from it as he thought about her question. She had ignored his inquiry about her guests, but he felt there wasn't any harm in telling her. "I'm a military man- well, I was until this happened, of course. We were operating out in Russia, a covert op, very hush-hush. No one knew about it, something about a cult leader recruiting followers for some sort of experiments. They didn't tell us much before we got there, but when we did" Nikolai shook his head slowly, "It was nothing I could have expected, that's for sure. He hesistated taking another noticibly larger gulp of the wine. Looking up at her he smirked a bit. "This is gonna sound crazy, but you know, there are things that go that people just don't know about.
Nikolai took a the long last gulp to gauge how crazy he was sounding. Vanity sat patiently listening so he continued, "They were creating some kind of men with fused with animals. Dogs.. or wolves or something, I didn't get much chance to ask questions. My men and I were attacked by them and I barely made it out before the charges we set went off. I survived out there in the woods on my own for almost a week, dragging what was left of me, in make-shift bandages to a nearby village." He pulled a pack of cigarettes out of his pocket, "Tried to get hold of my unit after getting out a hospital there, but the slate had already been cleaned. Still getting that VA pay though, for just about anything I need." He chuckled a bit at himself, "Sorry, not many people I've told that story to haven't called me insane or just think I'm some PTSD nutjob who marbles just ain't quite all there, so I tend to get carried away." He pushed back from the table a bit and turned towards her. "You smoke?", he said holding out the open pack in her direction.
