    Dangerous Deals [Tesoro Family/Mythica]

    Post by Ahote on 21st November 2018, 7:59 pm

    The mansion air was crisper and cleaner than winter winds and filled the chests of all who'd inhale with the wholesome, homely aroma of perfume and scented waxes that exhumed from every chamber that'd let it. It was a feeling so foreign to the pretty-faced, relatively skinny man who sat in his chambers with a twist of chiffon locks coiled around his gloved fingers, but few could ever guess that he wasn't accustomed to the life of a wealthy man. Just months or so ago did he and his closest colleagues find themselves and whatever tangible marks of themselves they've created completely erased from the eyes of Fiore, but quite frankly he had stopped keeping track of the time that has passed them. From rags to riches and from water to wine, the former Basilisks had used their wits to establish something far greater than themselves. As far as this man was concerned, Ahote Laspor was now Giovanni Tesoro, Don of the Tesoro Family, and his rather showy abode now homed in Lavanitir Port City.

    And so, Giovanni, who was well dressed in a vest-suit of traditional black and white palettes besides the elegantly put cobalt tie at its center, reclined in his leather chair with his pair of crossed legs perching themselves on a mahogany desk that glimmered in the sunlight that poured through the stainless windows as if to boast its cleanliness. He stared at the equally excellent ceiling with great chipperness pulsating in his clear, azure eyes, his fingers tapping against one another excessively and his throat emitting hearty hums from its depths. Clearly, his excitement couldn't remain unknown. His eyes twinkled with a light that one could never have guessed came from a man so bitter in memory and in life.

    In the very corner of this room stood an equally skinny, petite young man with red, messy curled hair and unimpressive hazelnut eyes. He was well dressed in a vest-suit of the same traditional colors and fiddled with his thumbs impatiently. "Boss, you don't s'pose they won't arri--"

    "Quiet now, Angelo!" Giovanni interrupted with tepid enthusiasm, yet spitting an acute frustration. "There is no deadline for deals such as these. We shall wait all week if we must. That is the nature of this meeting, young man." Giovanni continued with his lecture, while he himself was equally as young, if not younger. They waited at the very top floor of the manor, in the one of the most extravagant rooms. It was fitting for a Don, who could see Lavanitir Port City from the very windows that exposed him from afar. The two, and perhaps the many others who marched about the manor, waited patiently for the guildmaster of Nightmare to appear before them, escorted by the gatekeepers who'd await her arrival.

    Time had ticked on and on and on.... Without reason or goal, it just continued moving forward to eternity. The reason behind this was unknown to all, yet nobody else seemed to care. For them time was nothing but an illusion created by the invention of clocks, or the determination of the sun and moon in the sky... But Mythica knew that was only the surface of its true purpose. Time was just a ticking bomb... And soon it would explode for the whole world to see.

    The young girl had changed. Drastic events had caused drastic actions, and now like dominoes everything had fallen to the ground. It was up to her to build it back up. The killing and the bloodshed had gone on for what felt like an eternity, only now had the end been in site. For the first time in her life, she had no idea what the future had in store for her. Becoming thrust into a position of power she never wanted, but for the sake of those under her, she knew she had to keep it. For this was the only way she could accomplish her goals... The only way she could ever see him again.

    Arriving at Lavantir had been simple enough. Nobody knew the clock eyed girl outside of her own guild. The magic council and the rest of Fiore had no idea. The plus side to removing all witnesses in her past exploits. She was the enigmatic leader of one of the most feared guilds in the country, and she was walking among the people without hesitation. With Chaoris gone, and Nightmare now under her control, it was time to move ahead with her plans. And that meant making allies. For as capable as her guild might've been, they could not accomplish everything they dreamed without help... And Luckily others knew this, and had already extended an invitation. The guild formerly known as Basilisk Fang had relocated and rebranded itself to Lavantir. She knew very little about the guild beforehand, because Mythica had no dealings with them in the past. However she had heard things over the years, and their reputation was enough to garner some respect from the clock eyed wizard. Of course there was the possibility of this being a trap. The dark guild could see Nightmare as a rival and seek to take them out, but Mythica was confident in her abilities to defend and destroy. So for now she carried herself casually as she walked towards the Tesoro family's estate. Wearing her regular clothing. A white buttoned up shit with a black skirt and tights. Her hear neatly tied into twin tails that rested over her shoulders, and her bangs covering the glowing eye on the left side of her face.

    It wasn't long until she arrived at her destination. And frankly she didn't expect much different. The large manor seemed extravagant and imposing. Perfect for a guild in disguise. She was curious to know how they would react when she wandered up to the gates. TO think that a little girl was the leader of one of the most notorious guilds in the world. Maybe they already knew? Nothing could be certain these days.. Everything had changed.

    When she arrived however, she had a bit of trouble. One of the gate guards was not convinced that Mythica was indeed the guildmaster of Nightmare. Of course she could've just showed her guildmark as proof, but she decided to display some power instead. With a snap of her finger a glowing seal appeared beneath the gate guard, and he was instantly filled with razor sharp metal rods! The rods looked like they were bent, deformed hands of a clock, and that was enough to prove her point to the other gate guard. No expression on her face as the other man stood in place, bleeding on the cobblestone, impaled by multiple clock hands.

    Finally arriving, the doors were opened for the girl as she walked in, blood still trailing from one of her shoes when she stepped in the puddle the unfortunate man had created when questioning her. Seeing Giovanni, Mythica simply smirked. She put an arm across her stomach and bowed. "Mythica of Nightmare, friend."

    The coppery smell of blood quickly battled against powerful aromas that circulated the estate, but Giovanni would not stir from his seat. The apprehensive Angelo, despite not having the faintest idea of what foul stench awaited them, continued to fiddle with his thumbs and the two waited impatiently for their guest to arrive. And so she did.

    When the esteemed Mythica strut into the room with an acute swagger, Giovanni erected from his reclined position and leaned over his desk with an awful amount of awe bleeding through his countenance as if some celebrity had joined his company. His cheeks flushed a peachy pinkness, azure eyes sharp and glossy with a twinkle of interest within them. His cheeky smile filled the room with a welcoming warmth none could suspect except the ever-anxious Angelo, who first noticed not the girl but the crimson that stained her shoes. Instantly he wondered just where such blood could've been acquired and grimaced as if grieving some loss. He was more visibly confused than upset.

    Giovanni stood from his seat with arms crossing over his chest, clicking his tongue with a sort of "tut-tut" kind of sound, "Giovanni Tesoro. A pleasure." he started, yet his soft introduction couldn't reflect on his quizzically perplexed expression. "I hope you didn't kill the poor man. But no matter, we'll tend to it." Giovanni insisted matter-of-factly, looking at Angelo before the young man quickly removed himself from the room and left to, as was put, tend to it.

    The chiffon-haired man looked back to Mythica with a tepid enthusiasm stilled to his lips, sitting back down in his leather seat. "I'm glad you came today, Mythica. It would've been a shame if you hadn't." he started casually, his voice thick and silvery. "I trust you know well of the purpose of this meeting, don't you?"

    As Mythica entered the room, she took careful notice to the surroundings. Looking for possible traps or hiding wizards in case things went south. She of course wasn't concerned about her own safety, but was just curious to see if those she was meeting with were concerned about theirs. Truth be told Mythica wasn't a very humble woman. She was strong, and she knew it. So one must know what exactly they're dealing with when asking to speak with her directly. She didn't really know much about the guild she was meeting other than reputation, but their leader seemed to be confident enough. Strange. Most people who knew who Mythica was weren't quite as chipper as he was. She wasn't entirely sure she knew what made him tick… But once glimpse into his past could reveal all his dirty little secrets to her. Of course performing an action like that would take some amount of considerable time… And a long uncomfortable stare into Mythica's clock eye.

    The girl frowned when Giovanni expressed concern about the dead man's blood on Mythica's shoe. He appeared to value the lives of his underlings, no matter how insignificant they may have been to his greater plans. But like he said, it was of little concern right now. The young man seemed rather strange, but of course that was probably to be expected in this line of work. At the question he posed to her, the you g girl couldn't help but giggle and then smirk at him. Biting her bottom lip, Mythica slowly wandered over to his desk with her hands behind her back. "I hear someone wants something from me. Normally they never want anything at all until the evil men come knocking! Yet somehow the white viper comes slithering to another shadow and ask for assistance. Troubling times indeed when the snake knowns nothing of what lies in those shadows… Only whispers and rumours of a soon forgotten time!" Mythica laughed before quickly lifting herself up onto Giovanni's desk, sitting on its edge while staring at him. "Yet the viper has nowhere else to go… So it must seek refuge from the light within the darkness of another. Only together can they wait out this storm… Or on the contrary… Bring it?" Mythica's usual nonsensical dialogue was followed by a laugh before she sighed heavily and lied directly on her back on top of Giovanni's desk.

    "What a shadow must ask of the white viper… What does he plan to do with this new friendship?"

    It was easy to tell that Mythica was, at most, skeptical of the place and his indiscreet invitation. Her looking around and quickness to slaughter men like misbehaving dogs, it portrayed her confidence well and rather cutely. But despite her qualms and whatever hostilities that came with it, Giovanni patiently kept to his seat, unwavering, welcoming, for the difference in their power was immense, him but a cub next to a strutting lioness, and a verbose beast she was. It seemed Giovanni gravitated towards wordy people and although he'd frequently converse with them, he'd only listen half the time. But this woman was hardly incapable of being ignored.

    Mythica crept over to the desk, the soles of her feet tapping rhythmically against the marble, each step louder than before and sending icy shivers through veins pumping blood to one's head anxiously. She had a deathlike strut with wide enough eyes to see one's pale expression reflect in its glossy pools. But when Giovanni stared into it, he could only see a quizzical man who wore only a peachy smile, albeit he looked more perplexed at the time than anything. He'd caress his jaw within one palm and tap leisurely tap the desk with the other, listening to her riddles-for-words until his azure eyes would graze over the lean figure of Mythica, who sprawled over his desk as if it were her property. He smiled again, "I no longer tread waters as conspicuously as I once did, but I will wave to a friend when I see one." Giovanni began pleasantly, "Mythica, such like-minded people are few. This friendship, I hope, is meant to bear only the fruits of our collaboration, whatever that might be to you. In other words, let us support each other for future endeavors." his smile became less peachy and twisted into one of an honest man's. It was soft yet firm and unwavering, but his azure eyes twinkled brightly still.

    Giovanni looked down to what space Mythica didn't cover on his desk with a fixed, still gaze, thinking. "Livelihood is temporary no matter what magic you cast on your being to preserve it. But the essence of glory and power are immortal if we use our livelihood to preserve it," he'd drone, looking solemnly back to Mythica, "I only want good things for you."

    Mythica listened carefully to Giovanni's words, even if it wasn't that apparent that she was. The girl stared up at the ceiling with her back on his desk, letting his words slip into her head as he droned on about the benefits of the proposed alliance. It was true, the two guilds would both benefit extensively from a deal like this... But there was also the risk factor. For one, she had never met this Giovanni character until now? What exactly was his angle? Mythica soldom beleived in people anymore. She refused to trust the words of men who claim their ideas are in the best interests of others... Especially her.

    With his last words, Mythica's smile would fade and she'd turn her head to stare at him directly while still lying down in front of him. Her expression had shifted from a calming carelessness to a grim seriousness. This was exactly the kind of people she was wary about... People like her. She stared at him for a long while, not saying a word. Her golden clock eye ticking with every second. Finally she broke the silence with a sigh and she leaned upwards. Mythica shifted her body so that she was now facing Giovanni, her legs dangling off the edge of the desk right in front of him as she leaned in closer to the guildmaster.

    "Wealth and power is what guides the serpent. He plans to use the shadow as a tool to achieve this, for this one must ask how does he intend to proceed? To leave one's mark on the world, you'll first must assume the help of others... But she's still a little confused... What can Ahote offer me...?"
    Mythica said, leaning in much closer now to Giovanni. It was obvious now that Myth had some way of knowing who he truly was, so her gaze would encourage him to be more truthful in his answer. Mythica wanted specifics. Other than being simply allies, how would he plan to help her new Empire rise to power?

    What Giovanni said was true, his want and desire to provide only bright futures for her and her followers. But even with the questionable deal they were arranging, other things had been on his mind. His mansion was regal and delicate-looking, but with the fortitude and construction like a fortress. For how glamorous and sumptuous it was decorated and treated, the white serpent often fell into his old ways of brooding and solemnity time and time again. It was no longer the home of the Basilisks, but the home of some greater evil.

    "How did this girl end up like this?" he wondered. What choices were made for her and what of them did she make for her to be in such circumstances? It was far more interesting and personable of a thought than typical deals and trades. But he did not like his gaze wander like his mind.

    When Mythica moved in closer to this pretty-faced Don, Giovanni returned her attempts with his cheeky smile and twinkling eyes. He would not lean closer, but his voice reduced to the softest of whispers, his breath smelling of sweet citrus, speaking as if his lips were grazing her ears, "There is nothing to be confused over, Mythica," his fingers were twine into one another, all folding together as he'd whisper this, "I offer you our allegiance, and what may come of it simply depends on your plans. I cannot detail our use without knowing what such a diabolical mind has in store for their future, can I?" Giovanni giggled mordantly.

    A moment of thinning silence broke with the droning click of his tongue and reclining himself into his seat once more. His smiled widened, "Consider us friends, Mythica! What do you suppose friends do together? Gossip? Go out to eat? Whatever friendship might be to you, it is my family's duty to be that. It is my duty. We have common goals, you know!" a hum rung from his throat as if the subject had been a casual one, ridden of formalities and tension.
