There certainly wasn’t anything little about it. I may not have many good things to say about the Rogues but you certainly have a love for the dramatics. Do you always use your abilities for such destructive means? He raises an eyebrow in return, crossing his arms over his chest. At least? Were you planning to kill me that night?
I don’t appreciate the blatant disrespect of my father’s work. As a PROTECT agent, it is my duty to report and arrest dangerous post humans, but I have a few questions first, if you don’t mind.
Of course I do, what else is the point of having all this power if I can’t have fun with it every once in a while. Natsumi shrugged almost unnoticeably. I wasn’t particularly planning to but if the situation had called for it I would have done it and without hesitation.
She threw her head back barking a laugh. You’re going to try and arrest me? I can’t wait to see how this goes. I’ll humor you Doctor, but ask me a stupid question and you’ll be thrown out the balcony faster than you can even blink.
I’m a little surprised you don’t have the security already. You can’t always rely on your ears to tell you when someone’s in your house. Not all of them stomp inside. Lucky for me you didn’t have any attack dogs. I suppose that’s what I would have gotten for trying my hand at a surprise.
Now, now, there’s no need for tears. I don’t think you’d let me out alive if I saw you tear up. Then again, I’d like to see that you’re able to do such a thing in the first place.
Now really what kind of woman do you take me for, Gavin? I’m perfectly capable of handling myself. Had it not been you who entered my home then this would have been a completely different situation.
She chuckled softly. I don’t know whether I should take that last comment as a compliment or insult.
Straight to the point, I can respect that. My name is Maxwell Cross and I’m here because a few sources have reported suspicious activities involving some of the well known “horsemen” as they call themselves being seen in your nightclub, Envy. However the both of us know that there is much more than that — so. I’m sure this encounter will go a lot smoother if we are both honest with each other from here on out.
Point taken. She raised an eyebrow, with humour in her tone. Perhaps they have walked into my club a few times but I’m not one to deny entry to anyone based on what type of people they affiliate with. That would just be a bit prejudice of me don’t you think? Besides what reason do you have to believe I myself associate with them in any unfavorable way.
That and to get to know you a little.. paper can only tell so much. I’m just a detective. No one important really.
How modest. Spare me the pleasantries, you’re not the first detective I’ve dealt with and I’m certain you won’t be the last either.
So what have you heard, Detective?
«Kuso» [Nami teleports to a different side of the room.]
Little girl I don’t know how many times I have to tell you to leave me alone, but I’ve had enough. The next time you show up here I won’t hesitate to kill and dump your body on Protects doorstep. I’m sure that’d be a sight to see, especially for Peter.
Anata to wa mou tsukiai masen.
I was just admiring your taste in furniture, Ms.Hayashi.
You came into my home just to admire my furniture? Interesting.
You know my name but your face doesn’t seem familiar to me. Who are you exactly?
To be fair, you cost me quite a bit of money. I think we can consider ourselves even.
Dr. Suresh. She greets with an amused recognition. Yes I remember our little run in as if it were yesterday. I’m sure you can always make more money. And, at least you’re not dead. She smiled tightly to him, her eyebrows raising. No harm, no foul.
I know I may seem more composed on the outside than I really am but I feel the need to stress this out just a bit more. I don’t appreciate uninvited guests in my home. So please enlighten me as to why you’re here. Have you come to turn me in to the authorities?
No? Then the door was open. You should think about getting one of those automated locking systems. I do financial advising for a company like that. I could get you a discount.
What, I can’t visit a friend?
Mm, I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. For now. And that’s very generous of you to offer but there’s really no need for it.
You came here just to visit me? She holds her hand up to her chest with feigned sincerity. I’m very touched, I think I might even tear up a little.
Or maybe you just gave me your key when you got drunk. Do you like that scenario better?
Please, as much as I like you Gavin I don’t think I’d ever be careless enough to give you my key. Even in my inebriated state.
What exactly are you doing here anyways, hm?
Entering my home without permission?
I don’t think I like that.
