Michael dug the heel of his palms into his eyes as he hunched over the small metal desk. Bring the heels around to massage his temples he looked to the clock on the wall with bloodshot eyes. Almost 11:00. The Angel would be stuck in this hell hole until well after three AM. He wasn't sure if the amount of cocaine that he just snorted would be enough to see him through it. If it didn't there was always more where it came from.

Rising, he stood at full height to stretch out inside the tiny office. He should probably get back on the casino floor. Not that anyone would come looking for him; unless something went wrong. Then they'd come running. On an average night like tonight, managing the waitstaff of a bustling casino was a cake walk. He considered himself to be decent manager. He was well liked by most of the people under him and the customer's were not that hard to please either. Give them some free booze and an extra spin on slots and most would walk away cheesin'.

Exiting the small office, Michael stepped out into the florescent lit employee break room. Painted lockers lined the far wall, a long bench creating a barrier between them and a group of fold out tables and chairs for employees to sit down. It was the same as any other break room really. His chocolaty brown eyes scanned the empty room landing on one locker in particular. The third from the end of the line, it's only distinguishing feature was the bright pink combination lock that looped through the slots.

Jettie's locker.

It belonged to his ward, Jettie Greene, He had managed to land a job as her superior shortly after she had started the bar tending job at the casino. He hadn't exactly been aiming to work directly with her, but somehow it had worked out that way. God's will maybe... Who the fuck knew? Well... Besides Him...

After all this time Michael actually liked it this way. Jettie knew him. Liked him. At least he thinks that she likes him. Is friendly anyway. And possibly even trusts him. He's been working on it. For centuries, he hasn't gotten this close to a ward. He was taking it slow, trying not to get too close. He did not want to make that mistake again.

Dragging his eyes from the locker, he made his way across the room and out into an empty hallway. A short elevator ride later, he stepping out onto the busy ground floor of the casino. He straighten his suit jacket and even his tie before mingling through the crowd, casting smiles in every direction as he made his way toward the centrally located circular bar that Jettie was stationed at tonight.

It took Michael a moment to spot her and when he did, a frown pulled at his lips as he became frozen to the wildly patterned carpet.
