All The Time In The World

Post by Eliza Dalca on Mon Dec 14, 2015 12:11 am

It wasn't very often that she found herself to have some amount of personal time, especially within the past several decades, yet here she was with nothing to do. So what else but observe the Art work this city had to offer? Besides, this place was supposedly safe, considering the situation the city was in to begin with.

Unlike the night of the Prince's 'Death Day', Alayna was dressed down, sporting a simple black shirt with a pair of cargo pants and durable boots; a jacket that looked as if it had seen many decades and TLC tied loosely shut. She didn't seem to be waiting on anyone, nor was she expecting any visitors; but neither was she particularly rushed. In fact, it was at one painting that she stopped to stare at for a long moment; the vibrant red and dark contrasting colors seemed enough to catch her full attention, as if she were pulled back into a memory from quite a while ago.

Well, this city certainly had it's perks, they at least had nice painters.

[ OOC: This is just basically a way to get to know Alayna better, anyone is welcome to come poke at her. <3 ]

It wasn't hard to miss the lumbering man that wore a tight t-shirt and baggy pants. He had decided to meander around the city, visiting the Elysiums he was told about. He wasn't in a rush which he liked. Slow and methodical. That's what he enjoyed.

He found himself in the Art Gallery, looking at the pieces one by one, and trying to see any of the other Kindred in the city. He liked to talk to them, find their quirks and see how they treated people. He noticed the woman called Alayna fairly easily.

He walked over to her, laying a rather large hand on her shoulder. "Are you enjoying the artwork?" He asked in his slow monotone speech.

The large hand on her shoulder was enough to give clue to who exactly stood behind her, even before he spoke; so there was little reason for her to react from being jerked outside of her thoughts other than a quick glance behind her.

"Butler, a pleasure to see you again."

A soft pause before considering his question, then she gave her answer. "Yes I am, and what about you darlin'? This city certainly has great artwork."

His hand returned to his side as he gave her a quick smile then returned to his stoic appearance. He looked at the piece she was admiring.

"I am glad you are happy to see me. I am happy to see you as well." He looked down to her. "I think the art is nice. I sometimes think about learning to paint when I have some spare time." He took in a breath and continued, "I do not have a lot of free time though. I have responsibilities to my other Savages and the Movement. I am glad I have a moment of relief today."

He looked around to see if he recognized anyone else, then looked at Alayna again, "Why are you out by yourself? I would think you could find company easily."

"I do."

She smiled, then turned her attention back to the art, "I just prefer to be alone sometimes, it's easier to breathe that way." Pausing, Alayna took a moment to think for a few moments before speaking.

"What do you think of the city thus far, Mr. Butler?"

He gave a smirk that was there and then gone again in an instant. "Well, I think it's good for the First Estate to remember what it is like to be alive again. I find they sometimes forget to, as you say, breathe."

His gaze returned to the art in front of him and a hand made its way to his chin and the scruff that hung from it. He stroked it carefully, thinking of how to answer the question. "In truth or in general?"

"Well, I'd prefer the truth, but I'm sure we're possibly thinking along the same lines."

This city either needed to be abandoned or helped severely, there was no in between, and she was sadly on the side that was going to help no matter what- it was her job after all, a soldier had her orders.

"How long are you planning on staying as well?"

"I am of the thought that Her Grace may be listening to certain Kindred over others of more proper standing within the Court." He spoke softly but just as slowly as ever, "I also feel that it must be hard on the Kindred here, to have to fight tooth and claw to squeeze out a living. I fear this Domain is failing and those that cling to it are either too virtuous or too ignorant to know when to walk away."

He look down at the woman's head and let out a sigh. "I find that I am needed here. To abandon the needs of a city in such dire straits would be abhorrent to my beliefs." He rest a hand on her shoulder, "I think it is the sign of a wise woman to know the heart of a friend."

"So then you are on the side of virtuous."

Not a question, but a statement of the obvious, as she knew quite well that stating it as a question would force this man to continue his slow speech. She had the sneaking suspicious that the enormous man was either faking it, or would eventually get tired of speaking altogether.

"Me, wise? Well that's awfully kind of you sir."

A short chuckle and she placed her hands in her pockets, "Shall we finish viewing the museum then? I'd hate to just stand and talk, we'll be blocking the view of a beautiful painting."

At her comment of his virtuous nature he shrugged.

"I am only kind to those who are deserving of it." His hand fell to his side as he looked at the other patrons. It would be quite difficult for anyone to look at the exquisite piece with him in the way.

"I would be happy to accompany you through the rest of the museum Ma'am." He turned and held out his arm for her so that he could escort her through the wonderful landscapes he was sure laid before them.

And she in return placed her hand on his arm, allowing him to guide her through the museum as he saw fit- at least for now.

"Thank you, Mister Butler, that's very kind of you."
