Mae was ushered back into the main room by one of the officers, and to a table. She sat soberly, nodding every so often as he spoke. He reminded her that she had a motive, like she could have forgotten. She had been found innocent in the death of her husband, but the papers, Kathryn in particular, would not let the issue go. Finally he asked her to explain what she had been doing during the murder. Taking a deep breath, she began.

"I was not feeling well, so I went off to be on my own." she replied, not making eye contact, "The lights went out, I had no idea what was going on! Anyone could have done it, no one could see anything!" Mae's voice began to rise, sounding hysterical. She could not go down like this!

Lunar looked up at the officer when it was her turn to be asked for her alibi.

The officer questioned Lunar after questioning Mae. "Did you know Ms. Scottson?"
"I only just met Kathryn before she died..." This got her really nervous. "We talked a little before she left to talk on the phone and at the time she was murdered."
"Okay then...Where were you at the time of the murder?"
"I was in one of the tables listening to the thunder when the lights were out. It was dark and I wasn't sure what was going on at the time. I'm uncertain of who killed her though. I remember a detective making some sort of list of possible suspects, but I'm not sure if he still has it or not." She said calmly as she recalled all that happened at the time of the murder.

After the questioning was done, she sat down at the same table as before being silent as others were being questioned

Nilda crossed her arms while she was being questioned by the officers. "Yes, I know of Kathryn. We met before she died."

"What were you doing during the black out?"

"You see, I brought my housemate with me as a companion. He ran off causing trouble so I went out to find him. That black out did not make the chase any easier, I'll tell you that." she replied while placing her hands on her hips.

"And where is your companion now?"

"No idea. I jumped into this contest to get something for him to bait him. He likes pretty things," Nilda answered.

Stella sat and answered the questions of the police officer tiredly. Now that they'd arrived, Stella was getting very near to sleeping.
"Did you know Kathryn Scottson?"
"No. I never even talked to her. In fact, until Detective Taller asked me where she was, I didn't even know she was here."
"Where were you during the blackout?"
"I was in here. Sitting at a table, if I remember correctly. I never left the main room."
Soon enough the questions were done and Stella was left to sit there on her own. She wondered how Taller was doing with the questioning. She plopped her head into her hand tiredly and almost fell asleep again.

Well wasn't this just terriffic?
Police officers were everywhere and The Kon was trying his best to settle an opinion about them. Most were old, fat or just plain ugly, and he didn't favor any one of them, sadly.
So once questioning came around, he just sighed and went through his story before replying.

"Where was i?" He tapped his chin with his cane "Oh i had just gone out for a pinch of air when this thunderstorm came around. I tell you i was surprised! It ruined my great outfit and i hadn't managed to get back inside before i was drenched- Dreadful!!"
He continued on with his story- about how this had gone wrong and that had gone wrong and how his hair had been ruined.

A while later the officer left him be, and The Kon puffed up his hair a little with the back of his hand, huffing. Tut-tut, what was with people nowadays? -He truly hoped that the policemen would crash and burn, and possibly leave space for a younger and much more adoreable generation.

With the questioning over with, The Kon returned to do something else- fetching something to drink actually.

Beni was escorted to the side by one of the police officers. As she sat and smoked, he asked her the usual questions. Did she know Kathyrn? Was she out of the room at the time? Exhaling a line of vapor, she answered in an almost rehearsed manner.

"I didn't know the victim on a personal level. I knew her only through the articles she wrote concerning my father's political campaign. I did not get much of a chance to interact with her this evening. For you see, while Kathyrn was being murdered, I was in an entirely different room. I...felt warm. I needed to lie down for a bit. Heavy fabrics can do that to a lady. I returned just as the lights turned back on, yes. When they went out, I tried to find my way back to the main hall. I may have seemed a bit flustered, but it was due to being lost in complete darkness, I assure you."

McBlarny... McBlarny... Detective Taller tried to remember who Officer McBlarny was, and if he had a reason to have a grudge against him... and then another police officer stood before him. A new guy, probably, but he thought he recognized the face... maybe he'd seen him at a crime scene...
The questions asked were mostly the standard questions - after he'd confirmed that he was indeed Detective Michael Taller, badge number 0369, and not someone with a passing similarity to him and a toy badge - : where was he at the time of the murder, did he know the victim, what was his connection to her... He replied that he wasn't sure about the time of death, but that he'd been trying to follow her - great move, now he looked suspicious again - , that he knew her only from the articles in the Bartonian, and that he wanted to ask her about one of them.
And then it started to get uncomfortable.
"What are you really doing here? It's not official business, I know that". the officer asked.
"I wanted to talk to Miss Scottson. Nothing more. Wanted to know her source for the article."
"Did you find out?"
"No. Never did, never will, probably."
"Couldn't it be that you're the source, and you killed her before it got public?"
Detective Taller shook his head. Over-eager officers... had he been that way when he got off the academy? Probably. He just didn't want to remember it. "So... what you're saying is that I, uh, told Miss Scottson about the upcoming undercover investigation, compromised myself and got shot because of that?"
"...Now that you say it, no." The officer looked embarrassed. "Do you have any suspicions, then?"
"Actually, yes. I thought you'd never ask. Here..." Taller took the napkin and pointed to a name he'd added to his list of suspects shortly before he'd had his little nap. The officer looked confused - was it because of the handwriting or the suspect, he wondered - but then nodded.
Someone tapped the officer's shoulder, and he turned and left Taller alone. The detective really hoped that his suspicions would prove correct, as he still was a suspect.
(First and last post today, I guess... school tomorrow, and I'm sick. Should get some rest.)

Having heard the statements from the guests, the officers had a meeting to discuss what they learned. After a few moments, McBlarny ascended the stage to speak tp the crowd.

"Ladies and gentlemen, after talking with all of you, a few people have really stood out in our minds. If I call your name, please step forward, as we have further questions to ask you. Konani, Nilda, Beni & Mae. Everyone else please try and relax a bit."


[[ Last round of questioning! We need to be fast, forums closing tomorrow! ]]

Hearing his name being called, The Kon... did not hesitate for a moment. No, he just took his time- obviously being in no hurry to approach the officers as if he had something more important to do.
And he had.
That was not approaching the officers.

Instead he wondered about the outcome of the contest, he was very certain that his own fabulous creations should have graded first. It would be just the judges fault if it was second or something silly like that.

Alas, he still had to go where the officers directed him, and with the smash of his heels and gain against the floor, he soon stood a few feet away from the other nearest attendancees to the masquerade, wanting to keep his distance to the females obviously.

Lunar was rather relieved her name didn't get called, she leaned in her chair slightly, yawning a little, hoping this case will be solved...However, she wondered about those people whose names were called, some were those she met before the incident happened. Soon,she'll know the truth behind a lot of them and their parts in the crime.

Nilda stretched out her arms as she made her way to the officers. She wasn't particularly concerned for the most part. From the air she gave off, it was a matter of business as usual. As if the woman was more than familiar with police questioning. Then again, having a kleptomaniac of a friend can do that.

The officers led the suspects into a room a bit away from the rest of the guests. After everyone was seated, Officer McBlarny began.

"The reason you were all called here, is not only because none of you have an alibi, but you all have a motive. Konani, your exploits with young boys are well known, as is the newspapers interest, which you surely must find inconvenient. Mae, your circumstances are similar, getting rid of the person making your life more difficult might make things easier. Not only that, but you were suspected of murder before.

Nilda, we don't know much about you, but we have heard stories from other guests about your klepto friend. There have been rumors that you are a member of a cult as well. Would killing to protect your friend be no big deal?

And finally Beni, whose father was also being targeted by the victim. Although you may seem the least likely of the group, we found something interesting near the body. Cigarette ashes, and you have been seen smoking throughout the night. May we see your drag, Miss Beni?"

"So we're all here as some sort of publicity stunt then?" Nilda asked boredly. She cocked her head slightly at the officer as if annoyed with the idea. "Rumors? Is that what you have to go off of now? Grasping at whatever straws of a scarecrow you can find? Oh how the law have fallen on thy people." The woman crossed her arms and shifted her weight onto one leg, "I will not deny that my companion is a kleptomaniac. He has made that very clear tonight and there's no sense in hiding that particular fact. As a friend, I did my best to keep him in line. As you probably know, he caused more of a mess after the murder. Not before nor during."

She motioned her head towards the other suspects, "I think they have a bigger motive. To be honest, they sound like they have more at stake than I do. I may not be a stranger to helping a friend, but even he isn't that stupid to get himself into trouble like this. A murder to cover a robbery? That's like amputating a limb for a broken bone."

Mae sat in the room with the few others the police found suspicious. She wrapped her arms tightly around herself, and remained silent. When Nilda spoke, she could not help but envy her reasoning skills. Nilda was able to talk her way out of trouble, while Mae only seemed to make matters worse for herself. What she said though, did not really seem to match what Noir had told them earlier. Mae's nails dug into her upper arms as she weighed her options. Finally seeing no other option, she jumped to her feet.

"I ca. . . can prove I am not the murderer!" She stuttered, twisting her dress between her hands, "I was with a waiter named Sebastian ( yes sebastian! XP ) at the time." She looked away, ashamed. "I knew how it would look so soon after my husbands death, so I tried to avoid revealing this alibi. . ." Embarrassed, Mae quickly sat down again.
