a character in “My Soul to Take”, originally authored by tallyrebel, as played by RolePlayGateway

Description

Image
Name: Laney Bennett
Soul’s name: Piper
Soul’s form: Serval Cat
Age: 21
Gender: female

Laney is, when she wants to be, quite beautiful. She stands at around 5’4’’ with a slender though athletic form. Long blonde locks fall down to her waist in lightly curled waves; the underside of her hair has been dyed a charming purple. A set of strange, heterochromatic eyes sit back in a face with high cheek bones and brow bones. Naturally nude lips curve into a delicate smile and often take on the form of a crooked smirk. Her pale skin is dotted with freckles along her shoulders, upper arms, and thighs.

Tattoos: back, ankle, right hip

Piercings: Two ear cuffs (left), One ear cuff (right), Double lobe piercings (both)

Scars: knife scar above left hip-bone, bullet scar below right collar bone


People tend to think a lot of things about Laney, but none of them include “good”. Laney is that girl who sticks her nose into other people’s business whether they like it or not. She has the uncanny ability of knowing things she shouldn’t and she’ll flaunt that information whenever need be. Another strong skill of hers is lying – you might not know she isn’t telling the truth until it’s too late. Her deception skills are unmatched, allowing her to infiltrate and deceive without much of a problem at all. She is a fighter for her beliefs and will do pretty much anything in order to uphold them – well, aside from killing. Laney’s value of human life is incredible; killing is always the last resort.

Aside from this tough outer shell, there is another side of her that most people don’t see. She is actually quite the pacifist and enjoys a good library more than a battle-field. Laney hates to follow the rules, but she enjoys the silence every now and then. In a sense, she can be rather selfless in her actions, though the way she goes about with these selfless acts makes her seem cruel and rude. Overall her people skills are a little lacking, but in the end she has a good heart. While she won’t admit it to anyone, Laney is quite the romantic. She is a true believer in love’s fate and isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of your normal relationship.

Likes: reading, painting, stars, the night, storms, libraries, winning
Dislikes: loud noises, dry weather, the cold, bright sunlight, spicy foods, losing


To be quite honest, Laney’s past is a little foggy. She doesn’t remember much of her childhood nor her years as an early teen. Her mind becomes clearer around the age of seventeen when her parents allowed her to join the rebellion with her. Her skills in deception and her ability to quickly pick up on combat gave her the opportunity to climb easily through the ranks. At age nineteen, Laney witnessed the murder of her mother. Her father, who had also seen the death, lost his mind to the grips of insanity a year later. Since then, Laney has taken her father’s place as second in command.

As of current, Laney has infiltrated the Government ranks and words just under the right hand man.

Choose your allegiance: The Rebellion
City: Aurelia

Max
Maximilien sat at his desk, the view of the entire industrialized city could be seen, he was proud of what he built. Maahes sighed softly as he lay in front of the large bay window that over looked the city. The Black Panther looked to his body. “You’re not really going to take her soul are you?” he asked casually referring to Amber. Max glanced to the panther “Maahes, now do you really think I’m that heartless, she’s like my little sister” he smirked his normally cocky smirk. The black panther frowned deeply “You are that heartless, you must remember, I’m your soul, your feelings are mine as well” he said calmly “She trusts you with her life” he sighed. “Yes, well…she needs to learn not to trust anyone in today’s time.” he said glaring at his soul. “Besides my business is my own, not yours.” He said glancing to the door as it open.

Lee, Amber, Laney and Liam coming in to his office “Good morning Liam, Ladies” he nodded gently “Please take a seat” he said gesturing to his couch. “Lee and Laney I have an assignment for you two” he said in his smooth velvet voice “I received word that the Rebellion was causing quite a scene downtown late last night.” He sighed “Seems, you miss Laney were spotted down there, last night…as well as you Amberlyn” he said slightly agitated “I’m not quite sure why the two of you would be in the downtown dangerous part of the city without my permission, or some kind of protection” he frowned as one of his servants poured a glass of scotch for him. He stood up pacing in front of the window for a moment, before taking a sip. “Anyways I guess it is none of my business, but you two do work for me and it makes me look bad when my top workers are mingling with trash” he said irritated. “As I was saying Laney and Lee, I’d like you to see what information you can find about last night’s little riot.” He took another sip of his scotch.

Amber
Amber sighed softly “Max…I’m…I didn’t mean to be out there” she said faintly hating when he was mad at her, she looked to Laney “I dragged her with me it wasn’t her fault honest” she said softly use to taking the blame, knowing he wouldn’t punish her as harshly as the other. “Amber shut up he’ll kill you” the Artic fox spoke knowing no one else could hear her. Amber simply ignored the comment. “Very well, I’ll deal with you later then” he said glaring at her for a moment causing her to look away. She looked to Liam for a moment as if she was going to say something to him though she decided against it for the moment.

Laney quietly entered Max's office along with three of her comrades - not her true comrades, obviously, but in this situation that was the only word she could use to describe them. A bored expression on her face, she sat upon the arm of the couch, arms crossed and head lightly cocked to the right. Ah, what a night last night had been. The rebellion's planned riot had gone alright. Sort of. There was a tug at her essence every time they brought up arms without her; now that she was successfully one of her greatest enemy's allies, she couldn't exactly go dancing through the streets with the other rebels, could she? All the same, somehow she'd managed to get out there to inspect what damage had been done so she could plan ahead. It was a dangerous move and she knew she was about to pay for it.

His words quickly confirmed her thoughts - ah, she'd been sighted. But that wasn't so much of a surprise, really. She'd known that there would be people up and about watching the riot take place in order to gather information. The blonde shrugged indifferently at the malice in his voice, not at all bothered by his anger.

"You should be more cautious about this," Piper snorted. "Even though you haven't slipped up yet, there is always a chance you're cover will be blown.

“Max…I’m…I didn’t mean to be out there.” Amber said, glancing in her dierction. “I dragged her with me it wasn’t her fault honest”

The response the girl was given was predictable. A "tch" escaped Laney's lips and her startling gaze flickered over at Amber. "I appreciate you trying to cover for me, Babe, but if you think I'm going to let you throw yourself under the bus for me, you are mistaken." Her heterochromatic eyes darted over to Max, meeting his own eyes with surprising strength. "You're right, I was out there. I recieved an anonymous note last night that a riot would take place and I decided it would be best to witness it - first hand knowledge is the best when it comes to gathering information for you. Or am I wrong, Sir?" She ran a hand through her blonde hair before twirling a strand around her index finger. "I called Amber out to help me," she concluded with a carefree shrug. "If you're going to punish anyone, if should be me."

A low growl rose in Piper's throat. "You're a fool, Laney! You really think he's going to believe you with just a story?"

"Since you want information on the riot, I already documented what I saw. My secretary should have dropped it off this morning in a folder with yesterday's date on it. I can do more research into the riot as the day continues." Laney glanced at Amber as if daring the girl to say anything more. She didn't want the girl to protect her. In fact, she didn't want anyone here to like her. The more favors they did for her the more danger they'd be in once the truth of her allegiance became known.

Max & Amber
"I appreciate you trying to cover for me, Babe, but if you think I'm going to let you throw yourself under the bus for me, you are mistaken." Laney said causing Amber to sigh softly as she took the blame knowing this wasn’t going to go well at all. She sighed softly looking to Ophelia “you do realize were the ones who get punished not you” the fox frowned deeply. “Should have kept your mouth shut” she snapped. Amber looked to Max as he started to speak again. “Amberlyn says she dragged you and your telling me you called her out!” He said angry with the both of them “You dare lie to me.” He said harshly gesturing to Maahes. “Max relax please, you need to calm down” the black panther sighed causing the leader to shoot him a dark look “If they get away with lying once…they will continue with it and I can’t have that now can I…that’s no way to rule a Nation is it girls” he turned his gaze back to the two girls on the couch. “Lee you are excused” he said gesturing to the door. Maahes grabbed Ophelia harshly by the neck tossing her gainst the wall causing her to whimper in pain. “Ophelia!” Amber called “Max please stop!” she said running to the fox, though Max grabbing her arm harshly. “Sit Down miss Sinnett” he said pushing her back to the couch. Maahes grabbed Piper forcing her two the ground his large paw on her throat as he cut off her air ways. “When exactly did it become okay to start lying to me…or talking back?” He said in a slightly calmer tone as he looked between the girls.

((ooc: I was under the impression that only the owner of the soul could hear what it spoke. Is this right?))

Laney wasn't stupid. She knew it was coming from the moment she pointed out that Amber was lying. It wasn't going to be pleasant, but it was better to keep Amber on her bad side than to involve her in something she didn't understand. She didn't even flinch as Piper was thrown to the ground by Maahes. Her connection with the serval was great, strong. She knew that showing no weakness was in the soul's best interest no matter how much pain either of them had to endure. The calm expression on her face contradicted the pride and anger riddling across her eyes.

"When exactly did it become okay to start lying to me... or talking back?" he asked.

"When exactly did it become okay for you to attack your own people?" the blonde asked in a voice that reflected control over raging emotions. "I do believe, Sir, that if one wants to be respected by his followers, he must respect them first."

She stood then, stuffing her hands into her short pockets and turning to face him completely. Laney tilted her head left now, an amused expression written across her face. "How exactly would you like us to treat you, hm? Do tell. Would you like us to become slaves who follow your every order? Would you like us to follow your words while taking seperate matters into our own responsible hands?" She headed towards the window and in the process brushed past him. "Or are we just like every other girl who enters this room?" she asked quietly as she passed.

The blonde leaned a shoulder against the wall beside the window and stared out across the city. It seemed she wasn't bothered at all by his angry words and actions. Even Piper gazed up at Maahes as if she didn't at all care that he was hurting her. But her heart felt strange, weak. Her lungs felt breathless. Why? What was bothering her so?

Max
Max gave her a small smirk he liked her strong attitude, he gestured to his soul to let go of Piper the Panther nodded. “Well, you’ve always had a mouth on you haven’t you Laney Bennett.” He said in a calmer tone before turning to Liam and Amber “You two are excused for now I’d like to have a word with Miss Bennett” he said casually waiting for the two to leave, before walking over to her placing his hands on her shoulders gently as he looked out over the city. “You know you are very beautiful and strong, your soul is very beautiful as well” he said in his smooth hypnotic voice, like he used when he seduced most woman. Maahes rolled his eyes a bit as he sat by the office door guarding it in a way. He softly rubbed his hands down the length of her arms. “You do know, talking back to me could cost yours souls life, even your own” he kept his voice low and seductive as he whispered in her ear.

Amber
Amber felt the slightest hinge of jealousy as she was asked to leave and Laney was to stay. “I hate her, she’s a royal bitch, first she gets us in trouble then…now she’s in there alone with him” she mumbled as Ophelia limped trying to keep up with her. “That should be me, I’ve known him longer” she pouted lightly. “He’s only ever going to see you as a sister Amber, you should know that by know” the fox sighed “Shut up! You don’t know what you’re talking about” she snapped at the fox.

As soon as she was released, Piper scrambled to her feet and darted away from Maahes, pelt bristling. The soul obviously didn't enjoy being pinned down and she wasn't trying to hide that fact. After a moment of hissing and glaring, she paddled over to the couch, jumped onto one of the cushions, circled once or twice, and curled into a ball of fur.

Laney's chest ached as he spoke to her. It hurt for multiple reasons, though the main two were obvious: one, she knew his intentions, and two, she hated that she liked those intentions. She kept her eyes out the window as he ordered the other two to leave. What did this guy take her for, another of his sluts? While she'd always been drawn to him, his obviously low value of women bothered her to no end. Women were just his toys - once he got bored with them he'd toss them away and find another to enjoy. But what perhaps bothered her even more was the fact that those women didn't mind being used. They knew what they were in for the moment they met him and none of them seemed to mind. What happened to self respect? To pride? It was disgusting.

Despite this, she understood the temptation. The instant his hands rested on her shoulders her skin felt like it was melting. Though she wasn't facing him, she lifted her chin, displaying an unmoved expression. His voice made her want to shiver. How many times had she heard him use that voice on other women? The number was countless. She didn't even want to think about it. Yet all the same it ached, tugged. His breath tickled her ear and for an instant her control was broken and she sucked in a breath of air.

"I'm aware of the dangers," Laney replied simply, calming herself. She turned to face him, her back resting against the wall. He was a good couple of inches taller than her - something she'd always dreaded - so she was forced to look up at him. "But you know what I love?" she asked while playing with the hemn of his shirt. A mischievious grin curved her lips and she raised herself onto her toes to speak into his ear. "I love that face you make when you don't get what you want," she murmured before sliding out of his grasp and sitting on the edge of his desk. "Besides, if you take away my soul or my life, you won't get the opportunity to get to know me better." She bit her lip playfully and gaze him a taunting look.

He smirked as she slipped out of his grip turning to see her now sitting on his desk “You are right about that, besides, I guess I couldn’t bring myself to kill such a beautiful creature” he said softly as he slipped off his black suit jacket and loosened his dark purple tie, approaching her once again You are quite the tease” he chuckled as he leaned in close to her his lips just lightly grazing hers as her stared into her unique eyes for a moment that seemed too long though he had all the time in the world. He stood back up smirking not bothering to kiss her as he now had his glass of scotch in his hand taking a drink of it. “I can see right through you…just give it up to me already” he said in a cocky tone. “You want me…I want you” he said seductively tucking a strand of her long hair behind her ear, his finger falling on her arm as he traced down the length of it. He set the glass back down on the desk as he walked back over to the window looking out of it for a moment, silence falling over the room “It’s your choice babe, you could have me in a second.” He used a tone that could melt any girls heart as he glanced to her his deep sapphire blue eyes looked to her. “Max leave the poor girl alone” Maahes frowned hating when Max acted like this, the leader of the New Nations didn’t even bother looking in his direction simply continuing to look to the young girl that sat on his desk.

“You are right about that, besides, I guess I couldn’t bring myself to kill such a beautiful creature,” he said.

Laney watched him strip off his jacket with as much control as she could muster, though she guessed that her gaze was a little too intent than she wanted it to be. When he approached, she leaned back on her hands and lifted her chin in defiance. "Teasing is my specialty--" she began, though her words quickly cut off at the ever so light touch of his lips. Oh the self-control it took to keep herself in line. Her heart felt as if it was about to burst. Her mind was quietly scolding herself for feeling such a way, but her rapid pulse was beginning to drown out common sense. In the moments that he downed a drink of scotch she swallowed down her hormonal urges and took on a face of impassive amusement.

“I can see right through you…just give it up to me already,” he said in a cocky tone.

Again her chest ached, but this time she successfully overcame the unecessary desire. Yes. He was completely right. She wanted him. Oh, she wanted him so badly. It was only her allegiance to the rebellion that was holding her back - but did it really matter? Was it really a problem if she gave into the temptation? No. Yes. Her mind was a flurry of thoughts that contradicted each other. Unprepared for his touch, Laney shivered, eyes struggling.

"Sure. I could have you whenever I wanted," she stated, a crooked smile playing with her lips. The sound of her own voice immediately calmed her. Her confidence returned and an equally as cocky expression found its way upon her features. "But I'm too good for you, aren't I? If you had me once you'd have to have me again, wouldn't you?" The blonde stood and advanced on him slowly, elegantly, and poked him lightly in the chest with an accusing finger. "I'm surprised, Romeo! You're actually giving me the option to have you? What a gentleman we have here!"

Maybe she could make a trade. The thought stood out like a light in the darkness. A trade for secrets, perhaps?

"Sure. I could have you whenever I wanted," she stated, causing him to smirked, his alluring famous smirk "But I'm too good for you, aren't I? If you had me once you'd have to have me again, wouldn't you?" the young woman stated as she walked over to him, causing him to chuckle amused at her words "I'm surprised, Romeo! You're actually giving me the option to have you? What a gentleman we have here!" he sighed looking to her for a moment “Well would you rather I not give you a choose because that can be easily fixed” he whispered for only her to her although besides their souls they were the only ones in the room. He gently but forcefully pushed her against the large bay window that over looked the industrial city. He leaned in “I think you’ve got it all wrong Dove” he whispered softly kissing her cheek as he whispered to her, forcefully pressing against her with his body as he held her arms above her tightly though not enough to hurt her. There was no escape for her at this point she was in too deep. “If you have me once…you’ll only want more” his voice was pure and full of confidence as he whispered to her. The way he talked was unheard of almost like a god, which made since for his soul having been the only Lion ever known, until of course Scarny. He was meant to rule, he was born for this, his soul was strong and he was more powerful than any other being in the New Nations. It showed now as he spoke to the young woman.

Amber
She glanced to her fox “Oh don’t give me that look, I have a right to be with him, my father was his right hand man until he died.” She frowned Ophelia shook her head as they went into the bathroom seeing Lee though not really acknowledging her. Amberlyn frowned as she splashed her face with cold water “Shouldn’t you be finding out more information on that riot” she looked to Lee. Trying to hide her jealous, trying to hide her emotion in general.

A sigh? Wait... what? Before Laney could successfully interpret that little sigh she was abruptly pressed against the bay window. For as long as she'd lived she'd never admitted to anyone her slight fear of heights. For an instant she glanced over her shoulder to see the streets below. Her heart nearly dropped into her stomach. She turned her attention back to Max the moment he leaned in closer. Her breath quivered as he kissed her cheek. The touch was soft, gentle, leaving her skin hot and flushed. The moment his body began pressing against hers caused a reminder of the dangerous heights she was at flashed back before her eyes. Startled, she grabbed onto his shirt, crinkling its fabric into her two small fists. While her heart hurt from the fear of falling, the majority of its pain was from the rapid beating that Max was forcing upon it. It was incredibly difficult to keep her mind functioning instead of falling captive of the thoughts of intimacy.

“If you have me once…you’ll only want more,” he whispered.

"Wait," she said suddenly, a hand shooting up and clasping lightly over his mouth. Laney paused for air - she'd only realized a moment ago that she'd stopped breathing. "You're making my heart hurt," she continued after a moment, pouting at him. The blonde met his gaze with an incriminating look, though a smile was tugging at the corners of her lips. "You're a bad bad boy. Tempting your workers is only going to get you in over your head." She then dropped her hand from his mouth and wrapped both her arms around him, resting her chin on his chest so she could still meet his eyes. "Maybe if you offer me something interesting then I will think about playing with you," she said, giving him the option to choose what could be of value. Information was what she wanted, but if it could aid the Rebellion, it would do. "Or... maybe I'll play anyway," she added, eyes grinning. Ah, whatever. She was a rebel anyway, right?

He smirked lightly as she clutched his shirt between her fingers, he could tell she was frightened though it wasn’t because of him. "You're a bad bad boy. Tempting your workers is only going to get you in over your head." She spoke causing him to smirk. He gave her a small look as she tried to trade with him. “You should really learn to separate work and play” he said gently as he wrapped his arms around her. “I don’t trade Dove.” He said using the nickname once again, he was always giving his favourite girls nicknames. “Have you forgotten who you’re talking to, I don’t negotiate sweetheart, in the end…I always get what I want” he said calmly as he leaned down kissing her forehead gently a loving gesture that he didn’t do to just anyone. He pulled away from her for a moment giving her a small accusing look “What could I possibly have that would be of value to you” he said as he walked over to his desk leaning against it staring at her “Your well taken care of as it is being a part of the government…you don’t suffer…unless of course you are wanting information.” He cocked his head to the side raising a brow as he poured another glass of scotch for himself taking a drink. He raised his hand gesturing with his finger for her to come to him.

Of course he didn't trade. She knew that. But it was always worth a try, eh? Laney's forehead grew hot at the press of the kiss. He was being extremely sweet with her, which surprised her greatly. From the love-making she witnessed, it was rare of him to show any sort of legit affection. Most of his actions had to do with desire and lust, not gentle, kind gestures. While she was a little dumbfounded by this new side of him, her negotiating mind went straight to work. The smile that had been tugging at her lips continued to grow. He seemed to know what she was thinking, in a way, though he still wasn't getting the whole picture - and hopefully he wouldn't discover the whole picture until she was long gone.

The blonde trotted over to him when he motioned for her to come. In one swoop she'd stolen the glass of scotch from his hand, raising it to her lips and taking a brief taste. The sting of the alcohol didn't bother her much at all as it slithered down her throat. Laney danced out of his grasp and over to the couch where she sat upon the cushion with ease. Her soul picked itself up and leapt of off the opposite side of the couch to go sit by the window.

"I just want to know what you plan to do when you take over the world," she replied, watching him with her strange set of eyes. "And if you're just going to toss me away when that happens." Right now wasn't a good time to bargain for important information. She wanted to make him more comfortable, but she couldn't completely convince herself that her flirting was only because of the need for information. Laney mimicked him with her own fingers, waving for him to join her. "You already know I want you, Max, but I'm not going to give myself to someone who is going to throw me away. I'm not stupid." She took another drink of the scotch before setting the glass upon the table and relaxing back into the couch, an inviting look on her face.

He chuckled as she took the glass from his hand "I just want to know what you plan to do when you take over the world," she replied, watching him with her strange set of eyes. "And if you're just going to toss me away when that happens." He gave her a small look as she said that “I already own the world dear, I have for close to a century now” he said proudly as she gestured him over, he complied gladly making his way over to her, sitting down looking to her for a long moment “What do you take me for Laney” he said gently once again slipping into his seductive tone of voice “I never toss out woman, they just always leave me” he sighed softly. “They don’t tend to like the person I become in a relationship” he smirked gently. He put a casual arm around her shoulder. “I’ll be completely honest with you Dove, I don’t make promise, they just disappoint a person if they are not followed through.” He said in an honest tone of voice.

Maahes stood up looking to the two of them wishing more than anything he could tell the girl not to get involved with him he had seen what Max did to girls it wasn’t something he liked to sit around and watch. Though he hadn’t seen this side of Max in a few years, when he had first became Max’s new soul, Max had treated only one other girl in this way he thought to himself.

“I already own the world dear, I have for close to a century now,” he said proudly.

"Babe, if you owned the world, there wouldn't be people rising against you," she pointed out. "You don't own the world until you own all of the people in it."

And then his voice had morphed back into the tone that gave her goosebumps. That was funny. A complete lie. Everyone knew that a girl who had him once would always go back for more no matter how she was treated for it. Laney grinned in reflection of his gentle smirk. "Oh? That's funny," she purred. "So they leave because of what you become? That's interesting. Another mystery of his Magesty solved." It was hard to tell if he was being completely honest. She wanted to believe him, but her mind was screaming, trying to make her understand that she couldn't trust a word that came out of his mouth. The blonde twisted, using the leverage of her knee upon the couch to lift herself. She sat shamelessly on his lap, grabbing the collar of his shirt and tugging it so they were face to face. "I wonder why those women don't like the person you become," she thought aloud, an innocent expression lighting her features, though the devilish look in her eyes betrayed it. "Maybe I should learn why."

Laney gave him a kiss on the lips; however, she mimed his actions from earlier, making the kiss so light that it could be mistaken as a brush of the lips, an action she hoped would make him crawling back for more. If she wanted to find the information she needed, she'd have to make him trust her completely - and, well, she wanted to get close to him anyway. "I guess I should fulfill your request and find out more info about the rebellion," she said suddenly and stood as if no longer interested. "How boring. Now I can't play." Her heterochromatic eyes settled to meet his and she licked her lips with the full intent of making him crave her.

"Babe, if you owned the world, there wouldn't be people rising against you," she pointed out. "You don't own the world until you own all of the people in it."
Her word catching him slightly off guard though his features never faltered “That’ an intriguing notion” the faintest smirk played across his calm and collected face. He listened to her talk for a moment and for a split second desire danced across his face he wanted her and it took every bit of strength in his body not to pull her into a deep passionate kiss, with any other women he would have already enticed her, there would be a trail of her cloths leading from his office to the door that lead into his luxurious room, but it was different with Laney. He felt a different connection to her. "I guess I should fulfil your request and find out more info about the rebellion," she said suddenly and stood as if no longer interested. "How boring. Now I can't play." He stood as she stood “Yes you should stop seducing your boss…that’s not what I’m paying you for Miss Bennett” he teased her chuckling lightly. He placed his hand on the door knob readying to open it for her like a gentleman would, he hesitated as he looked into heterochromatic eyes for a moment, before leaning down and softly kissing the corner of her lips. He knew it would kill her, being so close to kissing her lips, hell it killed him. Though he would never show the effects she had on him, that was out of character for him, in his mind showing his feelings would only show weakness in a leader and that was something he couldn’t afford.

Amber
Amber’s jaw literally dropped and she was at a loss for words at what the girl had said, more or less how Lee was degrading her in front of everyone. She couldn’t work up the courage to go after the girl not after she had just been so humiliated. She turned quickly on her heels walking back towards Max’s office, somewhat in hopes Laney was gone and she could complain to him about her so called co-worker. She was pretty much running at this point, she paused seeing Liam in front of the door guarding it like always which only meant one thing Laney was still in there or someone else was. The jealousy raged through her body “Who’s in there!” she order Liam to tell her although she knew he wouldn’t, he was like a brother to Max, his most loyal companion.

Laney let out a purring chuckle at his words. "I can't help but seduce you," she replied innocently. "You just look so delicious."

His gentle behavior was strange to her. It felt as if he was holding back, in a way, which was something she'd never thought he'd be able to do. The desire coloring his eyes made her want to melt, to wrap her arms around his neck and mold herself to his body. But that wasn't about to happen. She had enough self control to keep her lustful intentions from taking over - but only just. Her true job was not to seduce the boss. Her true job was to gather information and return if danger appeared. Despite this, the blonde felt an unbelievable need to monopolize with him. She'd had her share of men in the years she'd joined the rebellion, but this was a different sort of man. He was dangerous and, above all things, he was her enemy. The rebel inside her was screaming to break the rules and have him, but the intellectual on the outside was currently in control.

Well. Mostly, anyway.

"I'll come back later to report my findings," she said lightly as they traveled to the door. "I don't work well with others, Max, so don't expect me to tag along with them."

She expected him to open the door, yet he was hesitant, it seemed. Hesitant to let her go? Ah. Perhaps he was displaying self control as well. Her heart danced in her chest at the touch of his lips. Laney's eyes momentarily flickered shut before they re-opened and gazed up at him. A smile crept up upon the corners of her mouth. "Rule number one of working for the government, Babe. No displays of affection for another worker."

A light, flirtatious laugh escaped her. Devilish eyes grinning at him, she pressed onto her toes, kissed his jaw lightly, grabbed his hand, twisted the door-knob, and exited the room with Piper at her heels. Laney shoved her hands into her pockets and strode down the hallway with an air of mischief. Now. It was time to gather information.

Laney was an expert and stalking back in the shadows. She followed Liam from a safe distance, all the while taking note on basic rebellious acts that were going on throughout the city. Ah. Oh. Well.. this was a surprise. She watched quietly as Scarny was collected by Liam, a frown on her lips. God that girl was just... There were no words to describe Scarny. To be completely honest, she wasn't even sure she liked the leader. She'd never exactly followed her, though if given orders she carried them through. Actually, she wasn't even sure if Scarny approved of her infiltration into the government.

Once Scarny and Liam had disappeared, the blonde strode out into the street towards two of her companions: Ellie and Amelia, to be exact. Without a hint of mercy she grabbed Amelia by the collar and shoved her to the ground. Laney sat on the girl's chest and pinned her hands to the ground with one of her own hands. Her other hand produced a gun from inside her coat jacket which she pointed directly at Ellie, daring her to come closer.

"What the hell are you doing?" Amelia hissed, struggling.

"Don't you dare blow my cover," Laney snapped after leaning forward to speak into the girl's ear. "I need you to go along with me, alright?"

The brunette gave a convincing act of writhing. When Laney sat up, Amelia glared daggers - it was probable that she was actually angry about the whole situation. "I won't talk," she growled. "Don't even try."

With a sweet smile, Laney fired her gun; the bullet clipped the edge of Ellie's pants but otherwise didn't hit her. "You really want to put your friend's life on the line?" she whispered with a cold glare. "Was that your leader who my friend just picked up? Who is your second in command?"

Amelia swallowed, eyeing the gun. "Yeah, that was her," she muttered. "Our second in command? That stupid bitch died two weeks ago."

"Gee, thanks for speaking," Laney grinned, clearly amused. The blonde stood, stepping away from Amelia who scrambled to her feet. "Run along. There won't be any rebellions on my watch." She watched as the two cautiously backed away, waiting until they rounded the corner to lower her gun. A couple moments after they disappeared a bullet went wizzing past her, grazing her arm. "Son of a bitch," she cursed, gripping her hand over the wound tightly. Angry that Scarny had been captured and frustrated that she'd let her guard down, she turned on her heel and headed back to the office.
