Liam - Cantwell Park

Liam regards what the little folk say for a moment. His reaction is as if speaking to the wee folk is a normal every day thing. After a silent moment, "Alright ye can find him fer me. What do Oi need ta do fer ye?"

Riley - In the Lobby

Seeing as there is about to be a fight and everyone is watching the two men Riley strides across the room to the main desk. Setting her face in a scowl she yells out as loud as she can glaring at the nearest hapless front desk worker, "HEY DAMMIT! The toilet in my room still isn't working! I called down here half an hour ago and no one has come up to see about it yet! You told me it would only be 15 minutes! I WANT A MANAGER NOW!" She punctuates each sentence by slamming the counter as loudly as she can.

The Lobby - Lupo, Kiki, Riley - Well, This is Escalating Quickly

Cleaver looks about ready to say something else when his coach-- his uncle-- puts a hand on his chest and pushes him back, Cleaver's posse moving aside to get him behind them, then squaring back up. Cleaver's uncle gives Lupo a look. "You know my nephew, don't you, Wolfe? Always shooting his mouth off. 'Course, he can back it up, which you'll find out when you square up in the ring tomorrow." He shoves his nephew. "Get on outta here!"

But then, so sotto voce it would have taken supernatural hearing to notice, Cleaver's uncle mutters to the posse, "Don't break him too bad. We don't want a forfeit, just an easier win." (Of course, there are at least three scions in the lobby, two close enough to hear it, and one which can see just how dangerous those four posse members are.)

Kiki would be able to see and sense the posse drawing in some power, but she would also be able to see that the boxer whom they're fixing to menace and/or try to rough up is a scion, as well. Riley went unnoticed by her until Kiki actually looked at her.

Which came right around the time that Riley starts raising a ruckus at the desk. This has the side effect of lowering the tension somewhat as the four disguised cyclopi (Lupo would not be able to detect anything unnatural about them as yet) turn their heads to stare over at the woman at the desk.

This distraction also has the added bonus of Cleaver turning to his uncle and muttering back at him, but too quietly for any ears to notice, particularly with Riley's noise in the way. Cleaver's coach sighs and taps the nearest posse member on the arm. "Come on, don't want to spoil the match tomorrow." He glowers at Lupo, and slowly the situation defuses. Riley's odds-calculating power can see that her interruption has shifted the odds away. Of course, now she's swinging the odds toward her getting banned from the hotel...

Which is when a familiar face saunters up to her. "'Ey, no call for dat kinda ruckus, chere." It's Mattieu Carrefour, the other poker player from the tournament in New Orleans. He flashes that charming grin and then turns to the clerk. "You don' worry none, I take care of Miz Thorsen. You jus' get someone up to her room and get her toilet fixed, no?" Then he turns back to Riley, all smiles. "You a good player, Miz Ry. Ain't never seen someone good as you, till I play my Papa, mind you."

Now that things are calming down, Kiki, if she were to look at Mattieu, would see the signs of another scion, but he seems much more shadowed in appearance through her lens. And for all her distaste for men in general, something in her would recognize that he is a pretty handsome one. Nothing overt, but just barely there. He is a charming one.

Cantwell Park - Liam - Talkin' With The Pictsies

Cantwell, the little fae spokesman, grins widely. "We-ell," he says, tucking his thumbs into the space where lapels would be if he were wearing anything that had lapels, and rocking back and forth on his heels, "we pixie fowk dornt dae anythin' fur yer bigjobs withit gettin' paid, ye ken."

This prompts an outburst of agreement from the others. "Aye!" "Payment!" "Gots ta git paid, ye bugger!" "Paid!" "In food!"

Cantwell silences them with a glance. "Aye, payment in food, ye ken." Then he grins. "An' wot kinna food does the pixie fowk want?"

The entire little group thrust their fists in the air with a shout of "PIZZA!"

Lupo

Lupo just smiles and lets things calm down. He just nods to the Uncle, and relaxes a bit. Like he said to Cleaver...why do for free what he can get paid to do. He doesn't say anything further, instead just heads toward his own room.

Kiki

Kiki makes a mental note on who is what, and then slips into the shadows until she arrives back at her room. She wasn't the type of person to just go up and say 'hey! Your a scion right?'. After she reaches her room, she stops..and thinks. Might be a good idea to let the two others that she had already met know about the almost throw down between a scion and the cyclopi. So she heads toward their room, keeping to the shadows as much as possible until she gets there.

Riley - In the Lobby

Riley let's her scowl deflate when Mattieu finishes talking. Gives one last glare at the front desk person and then stalks away assuming Mattieu will follow. "I'm looking forward to the next match myself." She gives him a slight smile, "Especially because I have this sneaking suspicion that you threw away that last hand and let me win."

Liam - Trying not to Laugh

Liam coughs to rather unsuccessfully cover up a chuckle, "Pizza." He grins, "Roight, so all t'e trimmins? Or do ye want just plain cheese?"

After they reply he'll use his phone to call a pizza delivery in for Cantwell park. Once the Pizza arrives he will sit down at a bench take a slice for himself and set the box on the ground where the others can get at it. "Consider t'is payment ta start looking and once ye locate him Oi'll get ye anot'er." After considering for a moment he adds, "And don't go gettin' too close. MacBride is a dangerous man by all accounts."

Afterward he will set out for the hotel for what seems like the 100th time today.

The Hotel - Heading Back to Their Rooms - Lupo & Kiki

For all that she's sticking to the shadows and trying to be unobserved, Fate apparently decrees that the warrior and the spy end up in the same elevator car as they head back to their respective rooms. He knows she's in the car, though her natural tendency to just blend in means she's juuust sliding out of his perception. Kiki, meanwhile, can't not pay attention to Lupo. Partly because she knows he's a scion, and partly because his divine heritage manifests in that Presence, which tends to make all eyes turn to him.

Kiki's cell phone, even if she had muted it, suddenly makes the "alert" sound, and she'll find she's got a new text message. It's from the same phone number that Art and Anna gave her, for the scions' "intel specialist." The message reads Tell Wolfe about the Titanspawn in the lobby. Evidently said specialist wants the two of them to be aware of each other.

The Hotel - Walking About the Lobby - Riley & Mattieu

Mattieu just smiles that same lazy smile. "I don' throw nothin' away, chere. I's play for keeps, me. Luck o' the draw jus' go your way. We see how things go dis next time, no?"

It's funny, but it almost seems like her odds-calculating power gets a bit wonky around him, like he's screwing up the odds just by walking through the room, and not merely in the way a new variable should. Interesting thing to note.

Cantwell Park and later the Hotel - Pictsie Pizza Party - Liam

When the pizza arrives (extra cheese), the pixies dig into it with gusto, cheering and devouring it in mere seconds, a few scuffles breaking out over who gets the eat the melted cheese that stuck to the box. Cantwell gets a bit more than the others, as the spokesman, and he sits back, rubbing a tummy which looks slightly distended.

"Aye, dinna fash yerself, MacQueen," the pixie declares. "We pixie fowk ken wotta monster yon Crowson is. We'll find 'im." He looks and sees that the other pixies have fallen into fighting one another, so he jumps to his feet, belches a bit, which seems to restore his body shape to normal, then stomps his feet a few times before putting two fingers in his mouth and whistling sharply. The pixies turn to him. "Oi, you lot, let's go! Find t'e Crowson and then tell MacQueen where he be!"

There's a chorus of agreement, and then the pixies are just gone, leaving Liam with an empty pizza box. After he disposes of it and walks back to the hotel, he'll feel that slow pulse that he'd felt-- the heartbeat of the World-- fading as he leaves the greener areas for urban development, where its 'voice' is muted.

Lupo and Kiki

Kiki grits her teeth, wondering how in the heck the others knew about the Titanspawn, and how in the world they knew she knew. Add to the fact that she has to talk to this man who in her eyes has pretty much just proven he is a thug and a bully. Stepping out of her shadow, she calmly announced. "Your that Wolfe guy right? I am supposed to tell you that those thugs were something called Titanspawn?"

Lupo couldn't help but jump, he had known she was there subconsciously..but she just seemed to pop in from nowhere. Before he could stop himself, he was in a fighting stance. When she spoke though, he relaxed. "Well..isn't that interesting? And..who might you be?"

Her training kicked in..male or not, one must not forget their manners. "My apologies I am Kiki Toshioto of the Toshioto clan." She gives a formal bow.

"Lupo..or Wolf..either or." He chuckles a little. "My full name is Lupo Virtis, supposed to mean Virtue of the wolf or some such..don't put much stock in that though."

Kiki gives another bow. "I think you should meet my contacts..I have a feeling that like it or not, we will be working together."

Lupo looked at the blue eyed oriental, unable to help himself he thinks Exotic, wow she is actractive. He flashes his feral grin. "That works for me."

She texts back to the number that they need to meet, and she is bringing "That wolfe guy."

Riley and Eventually Liam - Hotel Lobby

Riley gives Mattieu a long look without saying anything. "So how long've you been playing cards?" She asks after a time.

Liam finally arrives at the lobby. (ooc: figure I'll let you handle the timing of when he gets there Jay 2K)

Hotel Elevator - Awkward Moment - Lupo & Kiki

Almost as soon as Kiki has sent out that text, the elevator suddenly cruises past both of their respective floors, stopping up at the twelfth. The door opens with the usual elevator 'ding,' and then Kiki's phone bleats another 'alert' sound, signifying another text from the "intel specialist." The text reads: Agreed. Time to meet. Room 1212. A&A are here. So's Brighton.

It seems whoever this 'intel specialist' is, they have some good skills to override the hotel's elevator like that.

Hotel Lobby - Flirting and Such - Riley & Mattieu & Oh Hai Liam

Mattieu is well aware of the scrutiny, but he's an expert poker player, and it's really difficult to read him. More than it had been in New Orleans. He shrugs at the question. "Since I could pick 'em up. Never wi'out a deck or two, me." And he demonstrates this by producing a deck from seemingly out of nowhere, pressing his hands together and fanning the cards out. With a grin, he de-fans them and then pockets the deck. "'Fore I got into hold'em, you coulda found me on de street, playin' Find-de-Lady with any mark comes along."

Liam's arrival is uneventful. The near-throwdown has already broken up, Lupo and Kiki have both left, and Riley is walking off with Mattieu. Cleaver, his Uncle, and the posse are now occupying the hotel's bar, where the fighter is angrily arguing with his coach about something. The posse, meanwhile, are scanning the area, not unlike bodyguards would do, but two of them watch Liam with beady, suspicious eyes. Liam's tattoo would feel almost itchy as they scrutinize him.

Lupo and Kiki

They don't even blink about the elevator, after what they have been through if the elevator had opened up and they saw a yellow brick road it wouldn't have phased them. Kiki lets him know which room, and they go to that room. Lupo is the one who knocks.

Riley and Liam - Hotel Lobby

Liam's non-tattooed arm twitches just slightly, but he manages to keep himself from scratching at the itch. He glances around the room once taking it in and noting exits, entrances, and positions of people and potential cover. Call it an old habit from his days in the ERU. He calmly strides over to the front desk. "Oi'm supposed ta have a room reserved 'ere. T'ough Oi'm not sure Oi have the roight hotel." He smiles at the person across the desk, "Name's O'Keefe. Liam O'Keefe."

Riley barely notes the entrance of another person, but takes a moment to admire the tattoo on his arm. Then she turns her attention back to Mattieu. "So you're a con artist then?" She asks with a slight smirk.
