"I have to go pick up the money at the new coffee place in town, would you like to come with me?"
She applauded, smiling excited "The one that opened in the mall? We haven't been there in a while, I will go with you of course!"
She grinned, pausing while eating "I heard they had new costumes for Halloween so we could take a look. I don't remember you having a costume for the party tonight and they rent theirs."
I nodded amused "Alright then, I can try some I guess..."
"Oh those boots!" Litia rushed inside, letting me follow her more slowly, I was in no rush.
"Come on, let's see the rest before you decide what you will wear tonight." Smiling I pulled her away from the door and further inside the shop, I had seen the clerk looking at us and he seemed as amused as I was.
"Pumpkins... cute" I heard her whisper. "So let's see what would look good on you" she added in a more firm voice.
"I am not sure" she finally answered "maybe you should try something else on. Diva..."
I grinned "Fine! But if I try something else, than so do you!"
"I wanted to be a dancer when I was a child... like every girl I suppose." I took the only ballet pose
I knew, looking at her through the corner of my eyes. She still looked preoccupied.
"... I wondered how it felt like to be a doll..."
"We will have to get more informations on our client this time. I really dislike not knowing who we are working for, we are going to get in trouble one day." She stopped as we both recognized the woman who was heading to the table next to ours.
The woman facing me winked happily "Today's specials are Black Mood, Deathflower Drops, Deep Despair and my personal favorite: Ectoplasmic Residue!"
I wonder who comes up with this kind of names.
"I will have two of... I don't know, the last one sounds good to me."
The blond woman smiled "Sit down and we will come with the drinks."
She raised a finger, stopping to talk before she even started "... You're right, I will go."
The voice, so close behind me, had startled me. I hadn't noticed the male approaching me.
"Are you afraid?" he asked, the tone of his voice definitely amused.
"It is Halloween night," I grinned "but I am ready to take the risk."
"Do you have any idea what troubles you got yourself in?" The voice was deep and calm.
He stared directly into my eyes. "You shouldn't have taken the job, stealing those cards is going way further than you can see." He shrugged "As long as your involvment doesn't go any further the theft is none of my problem, but you should stay away from them now."
"Dracklore...?" I had never heard her voice before, that I was sure of at least. I could feel their eyes on me. I did not feel threatened, but in this instant I hoped we could still stay away from trouble or if it was already too late...
See you soon for chapter three!
