Richard

Has been lurking at the edge of the conversation but suddenly cuts in like a knife through flesh

"My Mother always warned me about taking candy from strangers, so what is it precisely you are trying to  sell to my... friend

Mutters under his breath to himself

"Yesyesfriendthatstherightwordyes"

Back to the group

"And I don't want any bullshit, just a straight honest answer"

Looks up at the approaching figure, Aren't you a handsome chap, with your lovely clothes?! Don't worry none darlin', there's no folding changing hands, so I ain't selling anything.

Joan

Now now, sister of mine, no need to get defensive, we're all friends here... One of her hands drops down to sit casually near the semi-auto holstered at her hip, not close enough to be threatening

Richard

Richard moves his head to the side as if he's confused, he takes a seat, making a big show of it he reaches into the pockets of his Coat so all six of his knives are visible before pulling out a toothpick and making a small drama out of getting pieces of chicken out of his teeth

"You speak like politicians, speak your intentions with my group clearly or stop bothering a good few man trying to enjoy a drink after a hard days work."

Magnus

Reaches across the table and grabs the little vial.

What is this anyway? Is it what the big man feeds the city with?  Shakes the vial and then lays it down on the table again.

Stares the woman straight in her eyes  If I wanted some company to walk me home then I would ask a street rat.

Stands up abruptly  I have work to do. Night Karl. Night Mouse.

Nods towards Richard and staggers out of the front door.

nods towards Annabel raising his tophat as he does
notices how she's stumbling to the door as she leaves

Evening to you too, are you sure you can make your way home alright.

Jane

With a practiced hand, she moves her hand to pick up her drink, and palms the vial too, making it seem to disappear. Well, now we know nothing's been sold, or even given as a gift to a gentleman who looks in need.

Joan

Indeed, one tries to be nice, in this cruel, cruel world, and all you get is suspicion. She gives another look to Richard, but if you really want to know, we call it Wake.

Richard

Looking towards Magnus, he talks cordially but there's a certain inflection in his voice that could signify glee?

"Do take care on the way home Doctor, I hear the streets are full of all kinds of reprobate scum, I wouldn't want you to stumble down the wrong alleyway and end the night with your crimson guts all other the floor, I do hate to think what would have happened to dear October had you not been available physician

He turns to Joan

"What does Wake do and what's the going rate?"

It helps people when they're down. And you've a twinkle about you that makes me think you're very much... up.

Joan

And we're all friends here, so if you feel the need, we can help you out, gratis, because we like you.

looks towards Richard feeling a strange vibe of enjoyment in his tone

muttering under his breath so no one can hear
Must keep an eye on him

Richard

Stops picking his teeth and throws the pick aside contemptuously, Picks up the bottle of wake from the table and starts looking closer at the bottle and it's contents

"So the first hits free ladies? That's what you're telling me, well I guess I will take this little thing, be good for the days when I am feeling down"

Keeps an eye on Mouse, her hand always close enough to her holster so she could draw if needed, but not so close as to be offensive.

Jane

To Richard, Consider us the advance party. We let people know what's out there, and if they like it, we make sure they can find a salesman when in need.

Monday, August 24th, approaching midnight.

Most patron have given it up for the night, but a few stragglers sit in booths, nursing small beers, keeping their heads down, fighting their own battles. At the bar stand two tall individuals. The lanky one with two very nice pistols at his hips seems to be doing most - if not all - the talking, while the other, not quite so tall, but built he could juggle gravestones as a hobby, slowly sips on what looks like gin, responding with nods of his head, or single syllable answers.

Titch

...and of course, you're going to disagree with me, as you always do, but the time you spend working on your physique, and honing your skills, is the equal of the time I spend keeping the firing mechanism clear and practicing trick shots! Just because it takes me less time to maintain such things than it does you, does not mean that we are not equally valuable to the gang, and likewise, it does not mean...

Deep

Nods his acceptance, but otherwise lets Titch do all the talking
