After Lucio and Anna had went separate ways he headed back to the inn. “Hey, welcome back.” Verna greeted him. Lucio put up a hand as he walked through the doorway in response to her. “Thank you.” He said walking over to her.
“How was your day? Did you spend it all with Anna?” She asked as if she was teasing him. Lucio smirked back at her, “Yeah.” He said leaning on the counter and looking up at her, “She kissed me too.”
Verna’s face almost appeared as if she had expressed jealously but hid it, “Did you want a drink?” She asked bending down to get a glass. “Sure. That’d be fantastic.” Lucio said standing back upright and sitting down on the stool. Verna filled up a glass of ale and passed it over to Luico.
“Here you are love bird.” She joked. Lucio scoffed lightly as she had said that, taking a sip of his drink. “What’d you do today?” He asked, putting his drink down. Verna opened both her arms motioning to the bar. “This.” She let out a breath, “My life isn’t all that exciting.” She said and shrugged doing her daily routine of cleaning glasses.
“Nothing has to keep you here forever.” Lucio said taking another sip of his drink. After another few minutes they had continued to talk, eventually leading to Lucio drinking her blood from her thigh once again. After he had finished and went back to the bar to continue drinking, a person had walked through the door.
It was Theo Walker, the mayor of the town. “Ah Lucio. I was hoping to find you here. Come join me.” He said motioning out of the door that he had just stepped through. Lucio nodded and stood up from his chair. “Very well.” They left the inn and headed deep into the woods.
Eventually they had come across a cabin. It was decent sized, nothing to big or small. Nothing too fancy either. A couple guards stood outside on the edge of the perimeter. They had almost drawn their weapons until they recognized Theo. “Good evening men.” He said as he walked past. The guards nodded their heads.
They came up to the door opening it and walking in revealing several men at a few tables. John Blackwood, Erwin DeRose, Vincent Kumar, Jaques Caldwell, Gernot Haas, and a man he had yet to meet, Nikhil Gomez.
The small crowd had quieted as they walked in. “Hello gentlemen.” He said giving a small wave to the small group. Several hello’s were said as well as small waves and nods. “This is Lucio, the newest member to our group.” He gestured over to Lucio. Lucio nodded politely. “Take a seat.” Theo said gesturing over to a chair, “Let’s get this started.” He said walking over to one of the center chairs clearly designated for him.
