Vampire Silent Auction
And murderer mystery
Opening intro

Welcome to the opening of Belvens Antiques and Treasures!

Opening night is a Charity function that all proceedings from the auctioned items will be going towards the Blue Moon Charity. It goes to those of the support center that aids in the families of newly turned supernatural to help them in the transition of their beloved family member. It’s a Charity that is slow going and trying to get off the ground to make awareness of those being treated once turned, vampire or lycan.

The evening is set in an antique store. The front end is rather lavish looking with bits and bobs, all sort of things that look to be from older times and if you’re a collector you could swear most of it is original. Not possible right? Yet the way it’s setup is not like that of the over crowded, dusty or musty type of stores that appear to have no rhythm or reason to having anything within. Its arranged in a way to display everything from furniture to tea sets that's in a chic and classy way. A white room that looks modern as if to accent the way that the old and new can collide and be set for those to showcase their collection. Wealth is something that comes across with ease and yet looking at prices they have been reduced for this particular event, which seems to have an auction room in the back of the store.

Going into the back you’ll find the selected items that are up for the charity Silent Auction. There isn’t much but each item has a mini description for them and a sheet beneath it for those wanting to bid on the item to be procured. There are options to purchase things but that aren’t for bidding on. Obviously you would need to speak with the owner of the establishment to purchase anything that catches your eye.

As such, the night starts out with glasses of blood being carried by waiter’s walking around, magically warmed flute to keep that freshness. Don’t worry, we didn't forget those of none vampire heritage, there is a small table in the back for food of the highest quality. Buffet style that smells delicious in its wafting of the food there being offered. For now, the doors are opened and guests are welcome to wander, bid, eat and check out what else there is to offer. It’s not clear yet on who is running this establishment seeing as the vampires are involved in light of HASC... perhaps their only other way to contribute?

Come in and get settled, make your greetings, the owner will be showing up shortly to break down how the evening will be going.

You will notice there are others there (NPC's) that you will all recognize by some degree, they are a mixture of people ranging from humans to vampire to shifters. All within stations of the highest degree, shcnazzy huh? Check out the Acheivement tab to see who you're rubbing elbows with?


Rules

    Rules:
  • This is ONE thread but with a twist
  • You may post as much as you want in the first day
  • Once prompts On Sunday start you will ONLY be allowed to post twice between Prompts
  • There are 24 characters signed up this means a lot posts between if everyone posts which is why I’m limiting
  • Once the bidding starts - and if/when you are bidding on items - there will be a code to post UNDER your post that also has your achievement tracker in it!
  • This will be using real points for bidding, so be sure you have your points ON your character account so we may see, meaning yes you will get to keep the item. No I will not take your points if you lose the bid either.
  • For those that don’t have a lot of points, not to worry on missing out - there will be hidden achievements to get extra points. If you win something… you are out of running to win something else so make sure to make your pick carefully
  • There will also be Mysteryboxes for those that don't bid so don't panic
  • If you still don’t have enough points for bidding… the House will be more than willing to lend a loan ….for a price naturally (is this a secret plot point? Perhaps… ) HOWEVER, just because your character has no points and your OOC/sub-character has tons… does not mean you will get a loan - meaning there will be 4th wall breaching in this - No trying to break the system to get free points *eyeballs* How these points will be allocated will be determined through the event.
  • Bids do not have to be IC or played out, you can say bids have happened in the very beginning. If you don't win a bid, not to worry about playing it out.
  • When shit hits the fan and it will a per Saka fashion, take a look at the other tabs for secrets http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/wink.gif

  • Whose who?

    Sooo you have changed - You'll see a name next to yours and ya, it's what you think it is. You have switched bodies with that person. Those of you that have a - male or female - by you name has ALSO changed genders not just bodies. So unless you were paying attention to who was wearing what... you may have NO clue to who you have changed bodies with. You clothes are still the same though and are either too tight, or too big.

    Now the question about powers. Powers remain to the body, not to the 'soul' that has switched- thankfully you don't know how to control them but sucky for you... you don't know how to control them. Lucky for you all, there is only a brief flash for some 'memories' before your powers are shut off... for some of you, this is bad. For others your hunger is not what you are used to ad some have become blood thirsty... marked by the next to your name. You are in the body of someone stronger than you or have been switched into a vampire.

  • Clues

    If you swtiched bodies with these people you learned the below:

  • Charlie Buckman - He's been under suspect for funding criminal organizations but there's been no proof. He makes bribes for aything and everything. Blackmail, embezzelment, adultery. To the public he was on the brink of forced retirement but his higher ups had changed their minds seemingly over night.

  • Harvy Jones - He is stealing money from Mike the Laywer, and was caught by Charlie. He's paying half of his embezzled money to Charlie to keep him quiet. He's in debt even though he takes so much and those that know him is about to sell his faulty car business to make off with clean slate. To the public, he's sleaze and its known about his selling out of his company of cars, they just had a massive recall and its not the first time either.

  • Mike Pools - He makes up stories for his clients, making them lie to gain them the upper hand, known to any in the criminal market to go to this guy for defense to get off. He was in league with Charlie, a partnership in the making when Charlie backed out on to leave him high and dry. He has the old documents of that agreement... he just needs Charlie to disappear so the most current don't resurface. Helen knows of the deal and has kept quiet with promise he always helps her get away with her malpractice. To the public, is the best and the most uncouth in his directness to get people off. He is hated for the murderers he has helped no get jail time.

  • selene Taber - Kept her own last name rather than taking her husbands. She is having an affair on her husband and is being blackmailed by Zephie on it. Her husband's is brother to Charlie and Charlie death would pay off her debt after losing the votes when she was infected with lycanthropy and allow her to be with her vampire lover Helen. To the public, she was infected and lost the running in her votes.

  • Helen Troy - She has been sued many times for malpractice she always gets off the charges. Mike, seems to always seems to have her back. She's lost thousands paying back her Pomme's debt under the table. Its not on record, but it's no secret she hates Charlie for how he treats her beloved Selene. To the public, she is a brillant doctor with uncoventional means and has had many cases against her that were dropped.

  • Zephie Scarlet Has dirt on everyone in the room here. She reports much of their stories as its heard and some she has made up. She's a tabloid mostly but she's been out to nail the CEO for years. A death caused by him would be prime story. She was also an actor, small time but never made it bg time and is bitter about it. She blames Charlie for the agency she was working for having to claim bankrupcy that ended her career. To the public, you migth have seen her in a movie and know of the agency's banrupcy and most certainly have seen her on the news on every single NPC in this room.

    Auction
    April 14nd - April 22th



    Event open to all - Vampire speicies plot after
    The Collector


    A lavish looking man steps out, rich in his appearance. Clean cut and well groomed he looks like he comes from money, lives and breaths it in fact. He is distinctly pale, one that doesn’t look like he’s seen the sun for a very long time and most certainly the feeling of age is on him. His power impresses upon the minds that are near, feeling like just being near him is making your bones ache. Some more than others and he distinctly feels undead. Vampire perhaps, but not so close to it maybe? It’s an odd sensation and he’s a pro at hiding fangs if any of you are looking. The feeling passes of agelessness and once more the room grows light and airy, as if his presence was a brief show of force to gain attention before he opens his mouth to speak. What slips from the frail looking lips is that of old world accent, something that a bare few can place their knowledge in and his tone is warm, inviting with a smile that doesn’t quite reach the eyes,

    “Welcome I am known as The Collector and I am happy to invite you all to my Belvens Antiques and Treasures, an auction house of the finest assortments that boasts the rarest of rare. My own personal collection Hosted by our lovely Master of the City for this opening and we invite you to join in on the festivities. You'll notice each item about the room is secured with a sheet of paper and a brief description of each item here. You simply place your name and bid for the item. You may bid more than once to up the stakes on the previous bidder and for times sakes these will only be open for the evening.” A strong and delicate looking finger was pointed towards the back of the room where everything was laid out in pristine fashion, some things looking plain, others rather nice. All laid out on the rows of tables for everyone to purview. “Blood is of course provided as well as food for the none children of the night. Also, if there is something you truly want that the bid has gone too high for, the house may be willing to offer up a Blood Loan. The terms and conditions of that will be dealt with on the side if you chose to go that route, just call my name if you wish to take one out and I’ll be more than happy to assist. I bid you happy bidding and to enjoy the remainder of your evening.”

    He takes a step down, grabs a glass of blood and sipps at it casually to start up talks with one of the woman there. Some of you may know her as Zephie.

    OOC info

    With all your excellent hearing, if you care to eaves drop on conversations with the NPC's you may do so.

    The Next prompt will come Sunday evening ad the limiting between posts starts.

    NPC Conversations


    The Characters Involved:
  • Helen:"That Charlie, if I could get my hands on him... Who does he think he is waltzing in here like he owns the place? If it weren't for his bribes paid to the board, he'd be out by now"
  • Zephie: "I heard Harvy & Selene owes Charlie money... I wonder if that is why Harvy is selling out his company?"
  • Harvy:"Damnit, if only Charlie didn't catch me I'd be sitting pretty right now, what with how Helen pays Mike I could have made so much more.
  • Mike: "Bastard Charlie double crossed me, I've just to swap the papers and everything will fall into place'"
  • Charlie: "That fine piece of ass Selene is here, it'd be nice to tap that just once before her husband files for divorce.'"
  • Selene: "Shit, that Zephie is here. You don't think she'll tell Charlie do you? I'd be ruined if he knew.'"

    woo, first event post
    The night had arrived for the Silent Auction – an event that was being put on by the local Kiss. A group that she was doing her best to play nice with and keep under their radar. She had blood oathed to the master of the city but it was all for show. That's how the game was placed. She would also go without her tattoos for the night as well. She's never once worn them around any member of the Kiss and she wasn't about to start now. It was all part of the charade.

    She turned her head away from the mirror and over her shoulder towards Noah - “Zip me up?” she asked of him. As he zipped her up, she watched him in the mirror with a smile. She had made a very good choice in attire for him for the evening. He looked very, very good. So good, she almost contemplated not attending in lieu of having her way with him. But she knew she needed to do this. The dress she chose for the night was black in color, coming to just above her knees. It had a cut out style in the back the revealed a lot of skin but the front was otherwise rather modest. It fit her perfectly, hugging her curves in a way that made her hourglass figured more evident. They were paired with nice pair of black suede heels.

    Her hand reached up to braid at the side laying ponytail that laid over her shoulder. Once she was finished, she tied it off and left it there. It fell past her breasts and was a mix coloring of blonde, honey brown and dark brown. Her eyes flicked to him and once again, she smiled. “You look rather dashing, Mi Vida,” she complimented. “Shall we,” she inquired. It was time to leave this place behind for the night and enjoy themselves. The limo ride over was filled with their usual banter, and playful touches. Kismet lived for those touches from him. The ones that weren't lustful in nature, but more affectionate and loving. She was never one who voiced her feelings so she showed them instead.

    Before arriving to the event, she hid her tattoos. It was best to do it before the chance that someone else might see them. Their driver for the night was SMJ employed so she didn't have to worry about him showing up. He opened the door to let both Kismet and Noah out of the vehicle. Her arm linking into Noah's as they made their way inside. She leaned into his ear to whisper, “don't forget the fun we'll have after this.” Kismet grinned, pulling a way to catch his eyes.

    Noah wasn’t usually one to be accompanying people to events, it was something escorts did as opposed to prostitutes, but then it wasn’t a work thing. It was a… Kismet thing. She had asked him to come along, and come along he wanted to do; she was one of the most beautiful women he had ever seen, and so to be seen in public with her as her partner, well it was certainly something. Especially tonight in the simple black dress she wore, not that she needed anything flashy to be able to stand out in the crowd, which of course complimented the suit that she’d picked out for him and got fitted. It was, by far, his most expensive outfit and his only suit, he wondered how often she expected him to wear it.

    Kismet asked for him to zip her up and happily he stood and obliged, taking his time zipping her in and making sure to touch her back softly as he did smiling at her through the mirror and asking for her to do his tie up when she turned around. Watching her face in a brief moment of concentration do the perfect knot, and then they were ready and on their way out. A fun limo ride out to the city and soon they were there, stepping out with her with a big smile on his face while looking at her.

    A small grin reached his face as she whispered in his ear, before turning his head and whispering in her ear- ”You mean the pizza right?” He teased, knowing full well what she had been hinting at but wanting to tease her regardless. As they came inside he listened to the little speech with a bored look on his face before glancing to the tables- ”Zlatko, we should go look no? So you can see how much I am carrying back tonight.”

    Double Agent
    36 points
    He was dressed in a loose casual formal suit that just fit him, silver-gold cufflinks at the ends of both sleeves. It had been some time since he had done anything with any Kiss since Ireland, even when he had been in Rome for a short time, which had been nothing more than a fleeting few months before Arjun resurfaced asking for him to come back to work with him. And now he was doubling the double agent rigmarole, spying on the silent auction for Nova. He had to keep from running a hand over his face and just through his hair that had only just set in its slick brushed back style of a wave. Fate certainly seemed to never fail to enjoy flirting with him.\

    Walking in and through the House, he mostly ignored some of the few random stragglers already there. At least he wasn’t pathetically early, just early enough things only looked like they had just finished setting up for the evening. Wandering around looking at the items available for that night’s bid, he arched a brow at a couple of the items. One being a strange-looking watch and another a ring that could turn into binds of whatever form was needed to bind someone. He tilted his head at that, eying it but not touching it, that is, until a wave of power washed through the room and he turned just in time for when someone started speaking. Fuck, he was old. It had been a while since he’d felt power like that, and he had to use some of his statue-still power to keep from shivering like an addict. Fuck, fuck, fuck. In his experience nothing ever good had come from having people like him that old around. How was this night going to end?

    Well, might as well go start making friends with the powerful. He sighed through his nose, eying the watch and ring before heading over to where the Collector was starting to talk to someone, grabbing a flute of blood on the way, his almost ironically canine-pointed fangs scraping over his lower lip as the sight of an expanse of neck passed before him as he did. Old as he was getting, the traditional way of straight from the vein still appealed to him more than a rim ever would, but now wasn’t the time to play Dracula.

    Lingering just in sight, he wandered around the pair using his ears to eavesdrop on the conversation and allow him to be next for sneaking in a moment to talk about the night. It was the least he could do for when Arjun turned the city into another Ireland in the meantime. Taking a drink of his blood, he idly ran a thumb and forefinger under his chin where he had kept his beard at its five-o’-clock he had died with for the night.

    Kismet actually felt like one of the luckiest women there with Noah as her partner for the evening. And for the evening, that's what he was. He wasn't a prostitute she bought to work in her brothel or in porn videos. No, tonight, he was an actual person who appeared to have every freedom that those around him did. In a way, it gave a taste of life without that hanging over her. Not that she wasn't proud of what she's accomplished but it was her bond with Noah that often made her question things. Doubt if she wanted to continue on this path. Of course, those doubts came and went. She chose this life and she'd continue to chose it. After all, without this life she wouldn't have found her Snopje.

    Kismet chuckled, shaking her head a little. “Oh yes, the pizza. I'm just dying for that pizza,” she teased, a grin finding her features shortly after. She appeared to give her attention to the Collector, registering is words enough to understand what was going to take place. Essentially, she didn't find the man's speech to be all that important to her. She was here for show, after all. “Oh yes, donkey, let us go snoop out the items for bidding,” she teased, leaning into him as she squeezed his arm a little.

    “Let's get some refreshments first, hm?” she said, guiding in that direction where she acquired herself a glass of blood. It wasn't nearly as good as the tap but she would manage. “See anything you want to stuff your face with?” she inquired. That was one thing she missed – food. It was something she took for granted as a human that made her long for it for a long time after she was turned. Once they both had their refreshments, she allowed him to guide them this time toward the items up for auction.

    Everything was kind of dull to her but there was something that caught her attention – Ring of Chains. “What do you think, shall I make a bid on it?”

    Arriving early had been part of the setup, overseeing the venue to ensure decor and mood was right. Security was made, not just for the auction and her safety, but that of the guests that had been invited. It wasn't her guest list and upon hearing who was coming she felt it necessary. Dimissie was here for her own protection and she hadn't worried about that in the long run. She'd overheard some of the stories to these people, two of them in her own Kiss that seemed to keep most of their shit wrapped up tight but from rumors going around she really didn't trust them as far as she could throw them. They were borderline on the verge of causing public scenes and they all seemed to have a connections to each other. It helped that she had asked a low key vampire to help her in the matter. They had a good talk in their first meeting and she felt this was right up his ally.

    The black of her gown was shimmering in the light as she moved, the back room having been her place of rest to go over the possible loans for people and signing off on repayments should The Collector be asked for one. Her steps were echo'd by another as she stepped out into the main room, soft music playing around the room to give her something to 'see' through. Dimissie on her side and smile was wide as she stepped beside the stand as The Collector spoke. Not even she knew his name and she respected that from another vampire. His age beating down on them all before she turned towards the crowd.

    Stéphane was there, already in place and her head was turning left and right, eyes unseeing but there was nods in directions to those that passed her by, one off chance at Stéphane. "I'd like toe find Santino and Liam." she whispered to Dimissie. "And if Quinn arrives, let me know of her expression?" Her lips thinned with worry, her friend was still pissed at her and ...she hoped she could still call her friend after all that had happened... I caused her great pain to know that and she still was working on her apology to her. Whether she would heard it would be another matter and Nova knew she deserved it. There would be somethings she wouldn't apologize for, which was why it had taken so long to even think on what to say.

    Once the introduction was finished she nodded her head towards her mentioning and towards the crowd a slight bow. "Shall we get a drink?" Tugging Dimissie towards the warmed glasses to pluck up one that smelled the most intriguing for her.

    Walking with kismet he laughed as she rapidly changed direction to the food table; if there was one thing Noah could always do was eat his own weight. That was mostly from being starved as a kid, so the notion of stopping never really occurred to him, though he had to grin at her and give her a once over as he spoke to her. ”You don’t count do you?” He grinned, thumb stroking her lips to wipe away a bit of the blood as he then kissed her and then turned to the food picking up a few bits of the small finger foods before walking with her to the table.

    ”Son of a bitch!” He called out as he semi-tripped over the carpet on the way to the table, kicking at the bit that was sticking up and then straightening himself out again before joining Kismet again, for a moment staring at the description and tilting his head with a raised brow. ”Sounds like you could have fun with it, go ahead.” Looking along the able until he saw something that caught his attention and tilting his head pointing to it- ”That cup looks fun, I could call myself Jesus.” He laughed, meaning the Chalice of Wine, he couldn’t bid on anything here, but it was a fun thought.

    I feel something so right
    doing the wrong thing

    Larry had heard about the auction through the paper. Though some considered newspapers to be a bit outdated in light of 24-hour news, he appreciated the physical nature of a newspaper. The Blue Moon charity was certainly a noble one. He'd heard far too many stories of bad ends for those without means to come to term with their change.

    In light of these facts, he should have anticipated an abundance of vampires at the event. He didn't. But, the longer he spent in the city, the braver he became. Taking a glass of blood, he wandered the edge of the crowd.

    Larry had more than enough funds to place bids, but he also intended to make a private donation for the cause.

    Kaleb wasn't one to remain in the shadows, skulking. At large gatherings like this, he never failed to make himself known. While he wasn't completely ostentatious, like some of the old vampires with their regal gowns and jewelry more expensive than Kaleb's worth, he wasn't one to the linger on the edge of the crowd either.

    As Spathi, Kaleb was in charge of security. He and Cortez had organized the vampire enforcers at all entrances and exits and any other possible opening that could allow some uninvited stranger to enter. There were also enforcers lingering among the crowd, eyeing some party-goers that got a little too close for comfort at the expensive and mysterious items that the Collector had put on sale.

    Kaleb himself was also on the look out for any potential assailants. He hadn't forgotten the debacle last time at the vampire masquerade. The Kiss lost many lives as well as guests and the Spathi felt he had failed Nova that time. That is why he reviewed tactics, upgraded security systems and trained his enforcers' asses off until they bled to make sure Rhapsody was locked down and safe in large scale events like these.

    That wasn't to say Kaleb didn't take the time to enjoy himself. All the extravagance put on display wet his hedonistic appetite. The vampire liked to indulge in finery. Even if his bank account didn't allow for such flexibility, he was always determined to make himself feel like the king he believed he was. He meandered through the crowd, his sharp blue eyes inhaling the fascinating items on sale, nodding to a few Kiss vampires he knew as well as some of the enforcers, who inclined their heads in respect. While they had more of the solid black garb of typical security, Kaleb donned a more appropriate outfit for the event. A fancy suit, with a wine red velvet tux and black dress pants, fit with dress shoes that matched the tux. On his wrist he wore his most expensive swiss watch. His hair was slicked back and behind him trailed a wake of Armani code cologne.

    Running his tongue over his fangs in muse, Kaleb's eyes locked onto a particularly interesting artifact. Coming closer, he read the information on the item. "What the hell, why not," Kaleb said, shrugging his shoulders. He took the pen hanging from the side of the piece of paper and jotted down his name, along with 30 (dollars?) next to the Charm of Howls.

    Normally, Lydia would love a fancy event. Dressed up in a beautiful gown, hanging out with rich and powerful people, getting pleasantly tipsy. But in light of her lost powers, Lydia felt adrift. Besides, the auction was for a good cause. Lydia had her family's support when discovering her powers. Who knows what might have happened if she hadn't?

    When she saw Nova enter with Dismissie, Lydia approached them. You look lovely as usual, Nova. She didn't know Dismissie well, but it was obvious Nova cared for him a good deal. Knowing how busy Nova would undoubtedly be, Lydia didn't plan on taking up too much of her time. '

    Rajnish didn't particularly like events like this one. They were invariably dull and monotonous, not to mention that Rajnish wasn't the kind of man who appreciated being publicly forced into any kind of attendance. He had come because it seemed that it was the kind of thing that was apparently necessary for some less than explicitly clear reason.

    It was possible that he might be entertained but he wasn't holding his breath - or even thinking about breathing at all. He was here. So, this would have to be borne.

    This was exactly the kind of thing that he lived for, at least when it came to having to deal with organizing, promoting and making the vampires of this Kiss at least a whole lot more accessible than would be the case if he just left it be.

    Zahir had chosen to be smart, formal but still approachable, the last thing he wanted to create any kind of distance between himself and the others who had arrived for the auction. He was really and truly excited and hopeful that this would go off without any surprises or complications. Not too much to ask for, right? Zahir smiled - careful not to flash his fangs and then headed over to where the drinks were being laid out. As he approached, the introduction of his Master had him pausing in order to both greet and blood point them as was the appropriate and necessary action.

    He wouldn't stick around as he suspected Novaline would have a lot more on her mind than having a prolonged conversation with him. Zahir didn't mind in the least and once that was done he could see about going around and meeting someone else.

    She had not been sure about coming to this auction, however, she wanted to bring Campbell and show him the world of the vampires - well in that safe, controlled and nearly human way that had been planned for this evening. Aimee was not a fool and she suspected that he would have questions, particularly in light of their own developing relationship.

    Aimee had dressed as carefully as she did for any occasion, the glittering design and intricate detail of the dress, showed the skill of the designer as much as it highlighted and flattered her own frame and appearance. That had been the most enjoyable part so far, although she was hoping that Campbell would help to make sure that the evening finished in a memorable and highly pleasure "Thank you for agreeing to come with me this evening, ...I am not sure how this will all unfold but I am sure it will be a lot more fun with you here - have you ever been to an auction like this before?" she knew that he had done other work and it might well have come up then.

    Ain't it funny? Rumors fly
    and I know you've heard about me
    Liam didn’t think it was the best idea for him to attend this charity event that was being thrown by the vampire Kiss of New York. All he needed was Love like violence to go haywire, and they would all be participation in largest orgy that would be able to go down in the next guinness world record. His therapist thought otherwise; his therapist believed attending the charity would help Liam integrate back into a large social setting to better assist him into coming to terms with being a vampire didn’t mean his life was over. His therapist wasn’t aware of his addiction like relationship with his parasitic, vampire ability that came from his bloodline. Then again no one truly knew how far down the rabbit hole Liam was with Love like violence.

    After slipping into a white button down, a pair of grayish black slacks, a decent pair of black polished loafers and one of two suit jackets he owned. Giving him an appearance that he was actually trying, which he was... somewhat. Liam departed Rhasophy via taxi, and arrived to Belvens Antiques and Treasures. The second the his taxi pulled away he instantly regretted requesting to be dropped off in the front of the store, and his attire. Liam quickly put together when he saw others arrive via limos, or chauffeur cars, and said people dressed the part of high rollers. This charity event apparently wasn’t your PTA after school event, like he thought it was going to be. Besides it appears to Liam at less he already committed social suicide and he hadn’t even walked into the actual building. If this was anything like high school, then he just arrived to prom with his mother’s busted down minivan, in his older brother’s hand me down suits, and no date in sight.

    Weighing his options and seeing how he was already here Liam proceeded through the house. His eyes jumping from item to item, and reading the small plack that gave a description of the item. He was thankful towards these antiques glad that they were here otherwise he might have to interact with people that were here and still arriving. Liam was wondering when would this affair would kick off as he made his way deeper into the antique shop, his gaze moving from one doohickey to another. When he felt rather than saw The Collector move through the crowd.

    The Collectors’ will, age, power, or whatever you want to call it beat down on upon his very bones like a drum. It sort of reminded him of a house music, or a rock concert he went to in his former life, where the bass from the sound system was overpowering. Nevertheless it drew his attention away from the distractions of the room to the well dressed man that stood in front of the attended crowd. The presence of the Collector withdrew, apparently accomplishing his goal of gaining everyone's attention. Liam thought it was an overkill of a move, marking The Collector as a show off as well, but it did get the job done.

    The Collector, if that was his real name, was playing the host role well by explaining why they were all gathered there tonight, and the usual spill that came with such speeches such as drink up and be mary. When the Collector blended back into the crowd, and the chatter commenced again among everyone. Liam wanted to go back to his window shopping spree, but his thirst started to perk up.His eyes zoned in on a few necks of attendees. Lucky enough at that time a server came into his field of vision carrying a tray of glasses filled with blood.

    Liam made a casual B-line to the server, flagging him down by raising his hand, giving a friendly smile that the server returned. Thanking the server with a nod after equipping himself with a glass of blood. The vampire was examining the glass when he heard a bit of gossip, "That Charlie, if i could get my hands on him…. Who goes he think he is waltzing in here like he owns the place? If it weren’t for his bribes paid to the board, he/d be out by now.." Liam didn’t know who this Charlies was, and didn’t really care. It wasn’t his problem.

    It was a date. Of sorts. At any rate Campbell had agreed to take a break from the usual 'work' he partook and managed to pull himself out of the luxury of the Rhapsody Hotel. Sometimes it was healthy to get out and about. Plus he didn't want to disappoint Aimee since he was the 'plus one' and the last thing he wanted to do was stoke a reproachful attitude from her. All he had seen from the vampire was a good nature and he didn't want that to change.
    fine evening suit with a black bowtie, jacket and a white shirt. It was a simple choice but he decided to actually look the part. He smiled over to Aimee when she approached. He had been sort of lounging around the entrance since he had arrived a few moments before.

    "Never been to an auction ever. But I'm sure I'll have fun watching people throw money at stuff." said Campbell with a smile towards Aimee. "You look lovely. Couldn't not come right? And miss a chance seeing you all dolled up?"
