The Bleeding Spike

209 posts in this topic

     The building was large; three stories with a flat roof, the bricks washed a bright white. It was shaped like a giant cube, of equal dimensions on every side. Over the ironwood double doors that guarded the only entrance to the building menacingly was an enscription scrawled in splattered, crimson paint: The Bleeding Spike.

     Damon strolled into his tavern and looked around, nodding with satisfaction. The interior of the building had a low ceiling, of the same wood as the doors, with an expansive floor to match. There was a neat row of tables every three meters. The chairs were of low quality, for he had spent most of his money on every other part of the tavern before purchasing the seats. A massive oak bar wrapped around three walls of the room, the one at the far end well stocked with alcahol, that being one kind of saphire wine, two types of whiskey, thin ale, and a cheap red wine.

The bar on the left contained assorted swords and daggers from the cheapest stainless stiletto to the finest aluminium-edged longswords.

The bar on the right had scores of firearms stocked behind it on racks.

The third wall had a stage for performers and executions next to a staircase to the rooms above.

Damon smiled...alcahol and deadly weapons, the perfect mix. He was tired of life on the run and felt that there was nothing he would  ever rather do than spend his remaining years a barkeep. He went back outside and pasted a poster that read "NOW OPEN AND HIRING" onto the bright wall.

He threw open the doors and ran to the bar, where he waited, patiently. After all, if his tavern suffered the fate of a certain other tavern, he would be altogether destitute.

Hey, ya'll! Felt like we needed one of these after the battle at Invo's.

But do you have port wine? 

This is a crucial question, be careful how you answer. I've got a DA member with some nice hazard pay, and she's got a friend with similar taste. Play your cards right and you could make a tidy profit off their vices :P

Hydries (Hi-Dre-is) walked to her place at the bar ready to begin a day of serving and flirting.

Heh, yes. One moment...A bit of Deus Ex Machina

Suddenly, Damon glanced at his cheap wine. He got an urge to get a little buzzed. He opened a bottle. He tipped it back and took a big gulp. Coughing in surprise, Damon realized that thks was port, not wine. The salesman had lied to him. He used some red paint to cross the wine off the menu;

1. CHEAP WINE PORT - HAGGLE FOR BEST PRICE

 

"Good morning, my attractive companions," said Damon.

Talon nodded, humming and moving his hair out of his face. He was very beautiful, for a man, and had straight blond hair and blue eyes. Earrings dotted both of his ears, and a few necklaces hug around his neck. A wolf pendant, a dragon pendant, an arrowhead.

A tall muscular man of african descent, wearing a Kiss The Cook apron, a tight green shirt, black pants, and tennis shoes, walked out of the kitchen. He had a Ghostblood tattoo on his neck, and he was smiling widely. He walked up to Talon, grinning. "Hey, how are you?" He leaned against a counter near Talon.

Hydries was wearing a close-fitting blue dress with a low neckline with her black hair tumbling down to her sholderblades. "Hey boys," she said as she noticed the two men to her right.

The man turned, grinning at her. He looked between Hydries and Talon, trying to figure out who was the more attractive of the two. He stood up straight, and held out his hand, smiling openly. "Hey, I'm Abraham. What's your name?"

"Pretty good," Talon said, grinning up at the man. "You are looking handsome today." 

He turned to Hydries. "Hey, sister."

Hydries smiled and flashed her perfect teeth at Aberham "I'm Hydries," she said sweetly.

2 minutes ago, Sherlock Holmes said:

He turned to Hydries. "Hey, sister."

"Hey bro," She said and gave Talon a kiss on the cheek.

Talon gave her one back. "How's your day been so far?" He grinned at Hydries, glad to be able to work with her.

Damon sat to the side, oiling his revolver. Not the most sanitary thing, but this bar had seen worse...even if it had only been around for an hour.

"Pretty fun," Hydries said. "I mean we've been working here for one hour."

I assume they were hired before the bar was opened?

Talon nodded, and his hair fell over his face. He moved it out of the way.

Abraham leaned against the wall, admiring both of them.

"I'm doing extremely well." He grinned devilishly.

Hired just as the bar was being finished. 

Damon reassembled the handgun, inserting a single round into the cylinder and spinning it. This made fights less monotonous. He tucked it back into his belt.

Hydries stared at Abraham's body and storms was he hot. "Can I call you Abe?"

Talon raised his eyebrows at that grin, leaning on one hip and running a hand through his hair unconsciously. "You like the view?" he asked Abraham, his hair falling onto his face again. He didn't bother to fix it.

He raised his left eyebrow. "You can call me whatever you want." He let his eyes roam down a bit, then brought them back up to her face.

Talon snapped his fingers at Abraham. "I'm the pretty one, give me some love. C'mon, bro..."
