@Crimson Vapor: "No, I just happened to stumble on to this place; It's kind of where I come to collect my thoughts" Lynn said, taking a sip of her water. "You don't seem like you're from around here.
@Jlynnana: @Crimson Vapor: Seth watched the exchange between the two females and laughed a cold dark laugh. This game should be interesting enough he guessed. It would provide enough amusement for the moment and allow him to him to relax. He grabbed his beer and walked over to the pool table. He put on the look of his host which was pretty convincing unless you could sense energy. So they were gonna play with those rules; those were rules he could have came up with when he was three. They did not challenge the competitors nor did it have any purpose. They could lie about the answers and nobody would know the difference. In his games if telling the truth was part of the rules then lying would result in a punishment. This might be interesting never the less and would allow him to watch these strange females a bit to understand. "Mind if I referee?" he asked in the same shy voice that his host had ever since that accident. which really bugged him considering how weak it made him sound.
@Crimson Vapor: @Masterofdeath:
Lynn stood up with her hands on her hips; "Hmmm You'd have me at a disadvantage considering I don't know how to play" She said, eying the billiard cautiously. "You can ref I don't mind" she said, taking a pool stick to the cue.
@Crimson Vapor: "Right..." Lynn said, watching as Nirvana started the game by breaking, letting loose a deep sigh, Lynn arched her back just a bit; aiming for the easiest striped ball in the corner; she gently pushed her stick into the white ball; the ball screamed across the billiard hitting a solid green ball. "I guess I'm solids" she said, with a smirk on her face, already feeling better.
"Where are you from?" she said, standing up resting the cue on her cheek.
@Crimson Vapor: @Jlynnana: Seth gave a slight chuckle to himself. This game was simple and non challenging. He could win the entire game in one move easily as it was based on angles and force. It was simple physics and a game on top of that. He had a certain talent for games so a game as simple as this would be little more then boredom for him. He just watched the game with boredom not really paying attention to who won or lost.
@Crimson Vapor: "My name is Ma Xiahua; but my friends call me Lynn" Lynn looked at the angle for her next shot. "Hmmm no shot there" she said, slowly walking around the table looking for a better shot. Once again bending at the waist she took aim on a yellow ball, but missed. "Damnit."
@Crimson Vapor said: "China, off the shores of the Yellow River, currently; I stay on a massvie ship called the Tempest" Lynn admitted, seeing the oppertunity, Nirvana created by hitting her ball in. Placing a leg up on the corner of the table. Lynn saw an oppertunity for two questions. Gently tapping the back of her solid colored targets; she knocked two in the same hole.
"Two QUESTIONS!" she exclaimed proudly.
"What's a God doing down here? and what's your name?
@Crimson Vapor: "It usually doesn't take me long to pick up on things" Lynn said, standing with her hands on the top of her stick, and an arch perched into her back. "A demi-goddess" sounds important" Lynn said, bending to hit another ball. "So The goddess of Love is your mother, what do you govern?" Lynn asked, hitting but missing.
@Crimson Vapor: "Modeling?" Lynn said, with a raised brow; her question came from left field it didn't really make sense to her. "I've never thought about modeling, I train way to much to do something like that" Lynn said, positioning herself to knock another ball in. "As for the drink, no, thanks; the last thing I want to do is start dancing atop these tables" she laughed, thinking about how alcohol tpically effected her.
Striking the back of the white ball, Lynn inadvertently hit the 8-ball in. "What does that mean?"
@Jlynnana: @Crimson Vapor: Seth filed the information that he learned in his brain for later even though truth be told it was of no importance He might have need to know of these weird individuals later though and any information could help him. He smiled when the game ended and now it was his time for him to have some fun. "How about I play both of you now? We can use new rules or the same rules your choice. I will take both of you on at the same time it really doesn't matter to me," he challenged with a friendly smile on his face.
Raven walked into the bar and the air around him was cooler than the rest of the room. He walked to the front each step silent and light as if he never took one. He walked like a man who was trained to for the upper class life where each moment of his life was made to gain favor of the person above you. He sat down and the bar and looked and the woman behind the bar. He read her a bit and could easily tell anything he needed to know about her. He ordered a drink and brought it up to his mouth and drank it using telekinesis. He decided to try a experiment here however and find out if there were any people with abilities. He sent out a telepathic message to say hello that only those with powers could hear. He also made sure that is could be easily traced to him so a person that heard it could find him. He also decided to keep repeating it every ten minutes so if a person walked in they would hear it. So now all he had to do was wait.
Director David O Russel and Crew do the Hustle in a baroque comedic farce with some real humanity to it.
