"It's going fine, actually," Nathan gave Minke a slightly irritated glance, "I'm just here for the fun of it, not as a source of income. I'm no pop star, but I've played some pretty big gigs. I did the R.I.P opening gala just a few months back!"

When Lep spoke about his ship, Nathan turned back to him with interest. "A ship? Oh, wow, that must be exciting. It sounds so awesome to be able to just zip around the galaxy as you please." He grinned broadly at the thought. "Maybe one day I'll do something like that. Some people go and see the world, I'd love to see the galaxy. I wonder what music they have on other worlds..."

"A firm is a place lawyers work, and they're the most insensitive and boring people you can possibly speak to." replied Minke with a sneer of distaste. She really needed a better job.

Minke met Nathan's glance with a raise of her brow. "Well, that's good to know. I heard about that R.I.P event! I could have sworn something was going to go horribly wrong, too. Guess I'm not as good at predicting things as...you are, Nathan."

Both boys were equally as interesting. Lep, of course, being a blue-skinned alien who liked to zip around on a spaceship, and Nathan for being a musician.

With lots of money in his pocket.

"What's it like up there?" she asked Lep.

"It's cold. It's dangerous. The unparalleled beauty of the universe is matched only by it's deadliness. You have similar things here, no? The bright, colourful creatures are almost always the toxic ones?"

He zipped up his jacket to the very top, as though the evening chill was beginning to reach him. "And it's amazingly huge. You say you want to explore the galaxy? It will take you far longer than you'll be alive to do explore this small galaxy we're in, and there are billions of them out there, most a lot bigger than this one."

He couldn't help but grin. "It's quite scary, when I put it that way! Though, I hardly imagine it's as scary as standing in front of a crowd and playing the piano. We never had that instrument on my home planet, but we had a peculiar metal that reacts to starlight, playing what's essentially a music that I suppose I could say is similar to that noise you hear when you blow around the top ring of a glass. But more beautiful. We figured out that the different wavelengths on the light spectrum changed what 'note' it could play and before you knew it, we had the Lightchord. This was only a few hundred years ago, mind. Before that we basically just... Hit things to make them sqwark."

"Music from starlight?" Nathan blinked, giving Lep a stunned stare for a few moments before laughing in disbelief - not a mocking laugh, but one of genuine astonishment. "The music of the stars... that's something you'd write as a romantic metaphor in a poem. That's exactly the sort of thing I'm talking about, the kind of fantastic wonders that are out there in space that people down here couldn't even imagine. The songs and the poems that could come from those experiences would be amazing."

He beamed, "It might be scary, but there's always danger. Even just down here, there's vampires and demons and spaceships falling from the sky... It'd be worth the vast oppressive nothingness of space for things as wonderful as that. Music from stars..." He shook his head, still quiet taken by the concept. "I suppose it would be too optimistic of me to ask if you have one of those instruments with you? I'd love to hear it. I could play the piano for you in exchange! Have you never heard it, or have you been here long enough to encounter one?"

It seemed that Minke had been all but forgotten in Nathan's enthusiasm for the music Lep described.

Minke could not hold back a small chuckle. "You put it that way, it almost sounds romantic. Musically romantic. Nathan sounds like he's falling for the instrument." she said, hand over her mouth to hide her grin.

She let them talk; after all, Lep's conversation was far more interesting than her own, so she didn't have to try as hard to get to know either of them better, become more friendly, find a way to the cash. Though, the more she spoke to these boys, the less she was caring about the cash. It was still priority, of course, there just seemed to be more to pursue.

"What an interesting night..." she mumbled into her palm.

"Nope, sorry," Lep replied with a slight shrug. "I didn't think to bring one with me when I was ex- when I was exhilerated by the idea of leaving my planet and exploring the galaxy. Though, who knows, if you look around you might find one. The problem is that my home planet is quite isolationist. You're not likely to find others of my breed and so mercantile from home will be extremely difficult to get a hand on."

He looked at Minke, wondering why she was being so quiet. "But I suppose I can let you know if one happens to fall from the sky or something."

"What time is it?" He asked, looking up at the night sky. "It must be getting on. How long have we been talking? Are any places even still open?"

Nathan glanced at his watch briefly, “Just past half eleven, think we must’ve been talking a half hour or so. I’m sure there’re some bars open, I dunno whether you’re in luck for a steak though.”

He sighed, “Well, that’s a shame. I did think it was a little optimistic. I’ll have to visit your world one day, because I don’t think I could forgive myself if I never heard this star music now you’ve told me about it. I guess you’re right in a way, Minke,” he glanced at the woman, grinning “About me falling for the instrument. The idea of it, anyway.”

Silent for a few moments, Nathan looked down at the street as they walked, musing over the fantastical sounding instrument and lamenting that he wouldn’t get to hear it any time soon. “How are you finding Terra, then?” he finally asked, “What sort of thing do you look for when you’re exploring? Grand sights, interesting people, or what?”

Mink had a small smile on her lips. "Perhaps one day you'll be able to play." she said. My, my, and wouldn't that be something.

"How in the world did you get to Terra? I've heard of pleny Isolationist planets out there, but I've hardly ever met anyone from them who haven't done something terribly illegal to get off. Might I be delving into dangerous territory by asking?" Her eyes moved from Nathan to Lep. She really liked dangerous territory.

"Nah, don't worry about it," he answered Nathan, his arms shuffling under his coat from where he tried to keep warm. "There's always another time, another place, you know. I earned some money on those roulette wheels tonight, so I think I might treat myself to a nice hotel and fancy restaurant tomorrow."

"As for when I'm exloring, I guess I try to look for anything that I might find interesting. I don't really have any specific criteria, I just... Fly. There was an old hero on my world, basically a legend, and it is said that when he was ready to travel again, he would find the highest place for miles around and release a cravat into the wind. The cravat would fly, and no matter where it ended up, he would follow it until he found it again."

His mood seemed to slowly deteriorate into some sort of apathy, or mild depression. It had been happening for the last several minutes; a natural response besides his conscious ones to the questions being asked. Questions asked about him and his lifestyle, which inevitably led back to his culture. However, it wasn't until Minke overstepped her boundaries that it really showed on Lep's face.

What she asked? She had gone too far. And though he held no animosity or ill feeling towards her for doing so, the way his expression became nothing more than a membrane holding back a sea of anger and regret could not be ignored. Even his reply to her seemed forced, as though struggling to keep his teeth from being clenched.

"You... Have no idea."

And then? Sigh. All of it left him with the release of a breath. "Well, I think that's enough for me for tonight. It was nice to meet you both, Nathan and Minke. Maybe we'll see each other again sometime, eh?"

He smiled a little, patting them both on the shoulder before making his way off down the street without another word.

Nathan was smiling happily at Lep’s tale, when he noticed that the blue-skinned boy was quickly losing enthusiasm. He frowned faintly, and it only intensified when he replied to Minke with the seething, curt tone and the following sigh. “Oh,” he said, slightly disappointed when the alien boy announced he was leaving. “Hold up a sec!”

He reached into his pocket for his wallet and pulled out a business card (because hey, freelancing musician, they were useful) and pressed it into Lep’s hand. “Just in case you come across one of your Lightchords, call me, uhuh? Bye!” he said, grinning slyly, before waving the boy off.

It never hurt to be optimistic, after all!

Nathan was then left in the awkward position of being alone with the slightly predatory woman. He gave her a glance, and smiled. “Well, I think I should head for home too. I have to get a train back to Wing City, so I should hurry before I miss the last one! Uhm, nice meeting you! Maybe I’ll see you around here again sometime.”

He offered her a wave, and then was on his way.

Minke watched them both with her lips twisted into a frown. When Nathan came back, she gave him a tight smile.

"Mhm. Maybe. Too bad we couldn't spend more time together, huh?" she said, watching him as he walked away.

"Still, I can't let someone like you with that much money walk away for good, even if you're not interested." She walked into a nearby alleyway, then raised her hand up to the sky. Several patterns swirled along her skin, to her palm, where it peeled off, adopted color and form, then zoomed off into the air.

"Keep an eye on him, mm? Let me know where he deposits that generous sum of money."

Agnimitra rolled her eyes, "I ain't a kid. As I said I am eighteen, in the eyes of the law I an adult." she stated as she saw him twine his fingers behind his head.

"All right, just a warning if your friend calls me a shorty I may snap." she said with a smirk as she followed Merrick.

"Oh, she won't call you shorty, that's for sure!" Merrick called back. "Probably fawn over you like a damn kitten..."

As they arrived at the apartment, not five minutes later, Merrick brought out his keys and opened the door. Stepping inside, one would view what would typically look like a college dorm.

There were articles of clothing carelessly thrown all over the living room, both decent and indecent. Bras, undies, shorts, skirts, pants, socks, tights. There were quite a few candles on the coffee table. It was a nice sized apartment, just...messy.

Laying on the couch was a young lady- er. Woman. She was in a small half-shirt with a bandeau beneath it. Her shorts were bordering booty line. Her hair was up in a bun.

She turned around and spotted two people, pausing for a long moment.

Agnimitra groaned at that, "That is even worse." she muttered placing her hands in her pocket as she looked down. She watched him open the dorm room staying back a bit before she entered, "Heh and people say I am messy." she remarked with a smirk, unfazed by the mess.

She saw the girl as she leaned back wide eyed, "Ermm...hi?" she said with a slight wave. "Sorry did we intrude on somethin'?" she asked as she looked at her...outfit or rather....yeah outfit. Agnimitra knew she'd not be caught in that, she much preferred lounging in a big t-shirt and shorts. "Guess I should introduce myself huh...I am Agnimitra." she said, "And I am here to complete a bet with Merrick, or rather start the bet."

She slid from her seat, walking up to Agnimitra with the largest eyes ever seen, framed by a layer of eye liner. She stuck her face right in hers, examined her, then looked up to Merrick.

"...can...can we keep her?" Minke asked. "I know I told you not to bring pets home, but-"
"Minke! We're doing a bet, it's not like that!"
The woman's lip stuck out, and Merrick could only heave an agitated sigh.

Agnimitra took a step back, what was with people getting really close to her face?! First Merrick now this chick. "Whoa hey! I ain't a pet. Would usually punch someone in the face for that, but I will give ya a warning this time." she warned her as she heard Merrick, "Exactly a bet." she agreed as she was then spun around. "ACK!" she cried out.

"Cutie pie? Ya sure ya are using the right vocab there Miss?" she asked as she looked at Merrick almost for help. She had no idea how to handle people like this girl. She had a feeling punching would be...bad. "Ermm c-can I borrow your restroom so I can put on the dress?" she asked her.

"Well...it can't be helped. Just call her Minke."

"I love your name!" Minke blurted, hurrying Agni over to the door. "You look like you could use a lot more than just the dress! Here, I've got tons of makeup. What are you planning to do with your hair? What was this bet? Tell me! Tell me everything!"

Agnimitra nodded, "Minke it is then." she commented as she heard Minke blurt out she liked her name. "Thanks? I mean it means...Friend of the Fire." she said. "Ironic in my opinion, ah well...also it...is a guys name. Dad I guess couldn't think of a girl name. He told me once I was gonna be named Sophia. Guess he liked Agnimitra better." she said with a laugh before she was dragged to the door. "Wait make up? Hair? I was gonna comb it, I mean it is short, can't do much with short hair. Bet was wearing a dress for a day, if I win he can't call me Sissy. What else is there to tell? Sides I TOTALLY KICKED HIS ASS!" she said loud enough for Merrick to hear. "Well tripped him with a fake out, in my book that is a win."

"HEY!"

Minke ushered Agni into her room with a giggle. "Oh, please, girl, there's so much you can do with short hair! We'll make it real cute like-"

The door slammed.

Agnimitra laughed, "Yeah he is, but he is also probably the coolest guy I met. I will teach him how to protect himself and fight, that way he won't have to rely on us girls." she said with a laugh.

The room seemed to grow in front of her like some sorta horror movie effect. "I mean it is short and don't put pigtails in it." she explained as the door slammed behind them. "J-just nothing too...girly. I mean I wouldn't look good with all that make up...right?" she said, in all honesty she had never worn make up, asides from nail polish once or twice. She also had no idea what to do for shoes either all she had was her sneakers and school loafers.

"Of course you would!" said Minke. "The more, the better, of course! Here, let's get started..."

Once they were out, Minke looked proudly at Merrick, who had crashed on the couch. He rose a brow at them, at Agni in the dress, with makeup, hair...combed. With a little clip in it to keep it from going anywhere.

"Well, well, look who finally looks the part!" he mocked, rolling off the couch.

A shadow fell over Benny as he sat up, right behind the couch. Moonlight poured through the glass balcony doors, and there was more than one terrifying sound bellowing in through them.

"Beennyyyy?" whined the high voice of a young woman. The shadow cast was Minke's. She was in a light robe, with a nightgown beneath. Minke rubbed the corner of her eyes, miserably awoken from both the noise outside, and Benny's ruckus.

"What's going on?"

Benny spun around as he heard his name being called and he sighed shaking his head, "It's nothing Minke, I'm sorry if I woke you up" he said and wondered what the other noise was, because he didn't make that sound, he knew for sure. "Just a recurring nightmare, and if It bother's you a lot, I could leave, I feel like an ass for waking someone up who let me stay here" he said with a sigh.

"Just a recurring nightmare that bothers me greatly, but it doesn't concern you, you should just try to go back to bed, I'll try not to make any more loud noises like that, I don't want to put you in a bad mood" he said with a sorrowful tone of voice.

Minke put her hands on her hips and pouted. "Don't you dare!" she growled. "You are a guest in this apartment! Unless you were purposely being a nuisance, you're welcome here!" She sauntered around the couch and sat next to the boy, crossing her legs. She combed her fingers through her hair to straighten it, and sighed.

"What's the nightmare?"

Benny was surprised at what she said and then nodded his head quickly. He looked over at her, and sighed, shaking his head, "It was just a nightmare, you know, twisted visages of the one's who accused you of doing something you didn't taunting you to off yourself in a very violent way, no biggy" he said with a nonchalant tone, as if it was a regular thing, which it was, but that did not make it any less of an issue.

The woman leaned her head back curiously. "Someone's been dwelling on the past," she said quietly, lacing her fingers together. "And it seems that someone's past is very complicated. Now, if that someone would like to speak, another someone would be inclined to listen." She lifted her eyes to a glow-in-the-dark wall clock. Something Merrick couldn't help but buy. "Even though it's three o' clock in the morning."

Benny looked at her and sighed, his sigh filled with dread, and pure sorrow. A man broken in half like a toy broken by a child. He nodded his head and then looked at her again, and got comfortable in his seat. "About three years ago, I was in school, a tenth grader to be exact, and I was well liked by the football team and other's, I was kind and nice, so that helped. Well, that all changed on a Saturday night, I was in a car with someone who was so good at disguising that they were drunk, I assumed they were as sober as I was, they were also the quarterback for the team" he said with a slight sad chuckle.

"We came towards an intersection and he suddenly floored on the gas, thinking it was the brake and ran through the red light, slamming into a car. Well, the thing was, there was a young child in the passenger seat of the car that we hit. The quarterback woke up, before I did, and before the cops arrived, with his drunken strength, he moved me from the passenger seat to the drivers seat, and then the cops arrived." he said with a quiet tone, one filled with sorrow.

"The cops charged me with second degree murder, and I was blamed with the death of a young child, the child of the sheriff of the city, and I was in jail, the police officers treating me like shit, and one day, I escaped, and stole a cop car, ditching it later." he said quietly.

"I am haunted by the face of the toddler, twisted with the injuries it had, and the faces of the quarterback, sheriff, and many other's who spat on me in the cell" he said and then looked down.

"This is why I feel helpless and alone, and attempted suicide" he said quietly, "Your friend Merrick met me first, and saw the blood on my wrists, covered by bandages but leaking through" he said with a sigh.

Minke was silent for a good minute after Benny told his story. Her eyes were pointed down at her hands, which were clasped around her knees.

"Wow," she said, raising her eyebrows. Her shoulders bobbled once with a bitter laugh. "That football guy's really a dick. Never really were my type, anyway." She let her hands rest between her knees to warm her icy fingers. "That image shouldn't stick in your head, Benny. It wasn't your fault. Doesn't matter what everyone else thought. You know. Don't let the weight of the situation make you feel guilty for something you're entirely innocent of."

Benny just shook his head, "But what am I supposed to do anymore? I can't sleep, and I feel like I can't make a difference at all. I used to be known as the good guy and now I feel like I'm the villian in a story that was concocted around me. The narrator is having a field day with me, and who I am, and it feels like shit." he said with a quiet tone of voice.

"Remember what you did with your tattoo? I want to have something unique like that, something to make me stand out from the crowd, and trust me, being a nice guy doesn't work in this kind of world........

Not anymore." he said with a sigh.

"You're focusing too much on the big picture," said Minke, leaning her head in her own lap. Her arms curled under her legs. "With every interaction, with every word spoken, you make an influence. It may not be big, but it will certainly do something." She smiled up at him. "You don't have to have super powers to be a hero. You see that the WCPD cops, a lot of them are normal humans, and they take down people who might as well be gods sometimes. And here I am, with fabulous powers. I haven't saved a soul. Neither has Merrick."

They weren't really heroes after all.
