Meeting Lady Victoria of Baden

Post  Malakiel on Sat Oct 13, 2018 10:45 am

When Rebecca arise from the dead once more her senses were filled with the perfumed sheets she was sleeping over, the comfortable sensation of goose feather pillows and the silk veld of the bed. Sleeping as human did definetely didn't make a difference during her slumber but awakening in this conditions was certainly very pleasant.

After she was ready to get out went to the door and there was already a buttler waiting to guide her to the agreed meeting point. The servant politely identify himself as Harold, she had already see him lastnight while Alfred was in the lead. Rebecca was impressed by the flawless uniform of the ghoul, the tuxedo with tails was so black and the white shirt behind it so white that seemed to be a brand new uniform for each night. Harold used white gloves and black shiny shoes in a perfect elegant style. Some interesting accessories were a key shape brooch with a crown at the end and matching silver crown shape cufflinks in his sleeves.

At the point of encounter Rebecca found Brian alone already dressed up in the exact same way than yesterday.
"Good morning Star" he said

Star awoke from the dreamless slumber after a day of mulling over all the events and thoughts in her head of the previous night. The beast was settled and calm again.

The lovely smells and sensation of the luxury she was surrounded in felt so foreign, but she relished it in a way. Star was never used to waking up to such luxury, even when she was human. She took a moment to soak it all in to her senses before she got up. It put her in a very pleasant mood.

▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" ohhh this is nice.."
She said getting up and looking around.

Though her outfit was still clean, even to Star's surprise, she felt it was probably expected of her to change. This wasn't something that she used to, being that she only changed her clothes as a vampire when ether they were dirty or completely destroyed. Though she did like the idea of "playing dress up". She immediately went to the closet to see what was available.

Star of course fussed a bit trying to find something high Society but also little practical. She finally found something that she like, and accentuate it with Bangles, a bracelet and a set of hoop earrings.
Shoes of course were non-high heels, black and matched the outfit well.

After finishing her makeup at the vanity, and adorning herself with some pleasant smelling perfume, she was ready to leave for the night feeling very well about herself for once.

She smiled politely at Harold, greeting him respectively. She was very impressed by his attire, and took note and notice of his interesting accessories. The a key shape brooch with a crown at the end and matching silver crown shape cufflinks in his sleeves stood out to her. She found it pretty, though she did not recognize the symbol no more get the reference.

Brian alone already dressed up in the exact same way than yesterday.
"Good morning Star" he said
Star smiled at the fact her Father called her "Star", the "Miss Garrison" thing was slowly grinding on her . She looked her father over and greeted him warmly,
Thinking..  <again with all the weapons?... please tell me you at least change your outfit>
She thought as she looked him over with a smile.

▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" Good evening my Sire, I hope that you rested well. You are looking as prepared as ever.
Hee-Hee  

Star said a bit formally trying to get back into the "character" that she thought was expected of her.
What's on the agenda for this evening?.... We are supposed to meet lady Victoria to oversee the interrogation of the Thralls... Yes?"

Brian shrugs and says.
"Valery offered us vitae for the awakening I spoke for myself when I told her I prefer to hunt my preys. She said that could be arranged, I think she was messing with me, thinking about a hound hunt or something like that.

But if you want to drink the Butlers will get you to their 'kitchen' for a taste. We will be meeting this Victoria chick before we go to the mission. I understand she wants to have a word with us first."

Valery offered us vitae for the awakening
Star seemed very hesitant at this.
I told her I prefer to hunt my preys. She said that could be arranged, I think she was messing with me, thinking about a hound hunt or something like that.
Star chuckled
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" Hee-Hee well... I'm sure a Ventrue's idea of hunting is very different from a Gangrels. Hee-Hee though it would be amusing to watch if the coin was flipped.  "

But if you want to drink the Butlers will get you to their 'kitchen' for a taste.
Star looked hesitant again and her expression tribes to one of worry.
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" ..  I would hate to be a bother...
I'm... Um.. Well.. I haven't exactly had the best luck with catching a good meal, .... satisfactory is not guaranteed I'm realizing when it comes to feeding. I would hate to embarrass myself. ... But I think it would be rude of me to not at least see what our host has to offer..
"

Star said with a soft sigh trying to think of what would be the best "appropriate" course of action to take.
" very well... If we have time. "
Star turns and addresses Harold
" Harold, please show me to this "Kitchen", would like to take lady Valery up on her offer of subsidence ... "

Brian nodded and Harold bowed ready to guide Becca to their feeding facility.

The Butler pulled the chair for Rebecca once more to allow her to stand up and waited until the madam was ready to escort her down the hallway. One of the many closed doors lead to a white space with several white chair, illuminated with white light and again everyone else was wearing white. Both Harold and Rebecca were the fly on the wall in this very white room, except for the gray carpet and some gray decoration.

She was lead to a couch to sit comfortably and was giving a magazine with several models to feed from, the catalogue was designed as a top fashion like book but instead of clothing and advertising about wrist watches there was about their blood type, physical features and general health. At the end of the same book a variety of accesories were offered, such as crystal cups, real human's skulls and human flesh drinking boots.

With the magazine a pen and paper was given to write down the model of her preference and the accesories taken along with guest's and host's names of course.

The illumination of the white decorum against her black attire made Star feel a bit awkward do the fact that she stood out. As she looked around at all the "whiteness" of the room she couldn't help but imagine herself throwing blood up everywhere and painting the white walls in red, completely embarrassing herself.
<maybe this was a mistake....>
She took a seat, trying to relax and patiently waited.

Star curiously flip through the magazine, completely shocked by such a thing.
<What the fuck is this???> Star thought as she flipped through the pages taking particular note of the accessories.
<human skull???? You can't be serious >

Star felt very awkward as she read through the magazine looking at the various models and information about them. In truth she didn't really understand what exactly she was looking for, she had only had a brief experience with her feeding type and both times left her unsure, confused and disliking the "feelings" of the experience. She only has a small idea of what the beast wanted and what it was willing to drink, And looking through pictures didn't help her get a feeling or clue to what it was.

The fear of embarrassing herself in the situation started to outweigh the desire for blood. She was too scared of picking incorrectly, and having to deal with that embarrassment, and or having to admit that her beast super picky and racist was also something she wasn't wanting to face.

▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
"OK... This was a mistake. "
She said softly putting the magazine down, and calling Harold, realizing she was in over her head.
< i can NOT do this! okay politely Decline and get the F*CK out of here...>


▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" Harold, forgive me but I think I shall pass this evening.  Lord Valentin and Lady Valery's hospitality is greatly appreciated, but I believe it would be best if abstain from feeding this evening.
My reasons have nothing to do with your selection, ...... they are more personal.
 Please take me to my Sire.  "

She said as polite as she could trying to hide her anxiety and nervousness in her voice, though her hesitation could definitely be shown in her body language.

The butler seemed upset by Star's decision and he replied.
"Madam if you care to explain the cause of your hessitation per haps I could be of assistance."

He didn't comply inmediately as usual. There was some tone in his voice to mean implicitly 'are you sure?'

Star diverted her eyes from the Butler's gaze, he could tell she was ashamed.
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
".... I... Um..  "
Star struggled to find the right words
".... Please... take no offense, I .. Um.. Simply am not quite sure what would be suitable.
Star paused nervously".... I would hate to choose incorrectly, you see.... I have had some bad experiences and I only have a mild idea as to what.... Um... "Flavor"? That is compatable to my particular taste.
She said rather embarrassed, though this embarrassment would be nothing compared to the embarrassment if she chose wrongly and vomited blood everywhere.

▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" I think it would be best to Simply refrain, then needlessly risk embarrassing myself."
She said as politely as she could, looking at him once again and forcing a smile.

The butler smiled politely to appear to others as they were having a pleasant conversation whom disrregarded the couple without material for a good gossip. Harold said.
"Madam you're safe here. No one is trying to ashame you, quite the contrary I hope to be able to assist you. Your problem isn't new of us. Ventrue clan selection can be tricky in a paper magazine.

As a ghoul I couldn't hope to understand your anxiety but I do know how to handle this situation if you'd let me. Otherwise I may take you to your Sire at once but I'd dislike to report you withdraw from your word or that you rejected your host hospitality in this fashion."

Star looked at Harold concerned.
As a ghoul I couldn't hope to understand your anxiety but I do know how to handle this situation if you'd let me.
Star sighed, taking  a breath trying to relax from her anxiety and she wished desperately she had a cigarette.


I'd dislike to report you withdraw from your word or that you rejected your host hospitality in this fashion."

In Star's mind the fact that Harold was a mortal ghoul  had to be set aside if she was to let him help her. She wasn't particularly comfortable or trusting towards relying on mortals, she didnt really like them. Especially from some of her deep-seated Sabbat viewpoints on mortals that she was not willing to air.
She knew Harold was only trying to serve his duty to his Masters and indeed he was correct it would be very rude of her not to try to accept his help in the eyes of the hosts.


▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
"Alright... Fair enough. I would rather have my ego scorned, then dare be rude to my host. "
Star gave him a nod.

▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
"The truth of the matter is... Its been quite embarrassing nightmare. A nightmare I do not wish to re-live so to speak. "

I've learn a lot of this by trial and error and it's definitely left quite an undesirable taste in my mouth, both figuratively and literally.


Star ran her hand through her hair as she tryed to think.

▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" I really only have a mild clue as to what particular flavor my Beast would find appropriate. I know that it has something to do with tobacco, cigarette smoke... the mere scent of it is very appealing to me for some reason. And... Umm..
Star hesitated again..
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" .... caucasians... ONLY caucasians. "
Star felt dirty saying this And felt like a racist.

"um... And males... Preferablly... Other than that I'm not totally sure...

ugh.. This curse is bullish!t! "

She stated rather bluntly, not liking the demanding feeding habits of the clan of Kings.

Star rubbed her forehead an annoyance.
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" I apologize.. I should not speak harshly... Im sure there are reasons for the Clan having such unusual feeding requirements that I don't understand.....  "
She said with a deep sigh

...
ONLY caucasians.
...
And males... Preferablly

Harold listened carefully to the Ventrue's request as a normal conversation about any topic. There was nothing strange in her request and Harold just took the magazine and pointed out a caucassian male if 35 years old that among his health features highlighted the nicotine presence in his bloodstream.

Harold simply smiled and called upon a 'nurse' and said.
"Model H9N1-32" and smiled.

She replied.
"Please wait until the vessel is ready."

The waiting was short. After a few minutes one of the 'nurse' dressed in white came back to escort Star to a different room. There was the man in the picture sitting in a confortable tilting chair waiting for the vamptress. The room had orificies in the floor everything was clean with a certain chemical smell in the air, everything was metal or plastic, nothing like the waiting room.

The nurse pointed some white raincoats behind the accessing door for her comfort and clothes protection, also pointed to the security cameras assuring that the 'staff' will only intervene in extreme need. After her protocol exposition she asked politely if Star needed anything else.

Star looked at the models description in the magazine that Harold pointed out. Indeed it stated that there was nicotine in his blood. Star found this odd.
<wait... Is that a facet of this? >
Star thought as she was slightly computer and wondered if other Ventrue had a variant of particular taste that she did.

She followed the nurse into  the other room and was surprised. This was not exactly what she expected.
She took a moment to observe her surroundings, and look over the man in the chair noticing he was conscious.
<wait... soooo this guy is just waiting for me?.   >
Star thought, looking confused for a moment.

< This is definitely different than hunting....guess rule 2 is out the window....
Is this how Ventrue feed?... People are willing??... Just like that?? >

She looked at the nurse with some hesitation.

▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" So... I just.. You know... And its cool? "
She said losing all proper formality in her voice And looking at the man, then back at the nurse

The nurse nods and pushes a buttom on the wall before leaving the room which started some classical music thread in the background.

Spoiler:

The guy in the chair, white skin light brow eyes looked at her and smiled trying to be polite.

Star blinks for a moment, looking blankly at the man as her mind tries to catch up to what is happening.
The classical music only added to the awkwardness of the situation as Star was having a WTF moment.
For a girl from the streets and the wrong side of the tracks as far as the Sects were concerned, this was highly irregular.
<what the f*ck did I get myself into??? >

Star gave a slightly nervous chuckle, looking at the man oddly as she slowly walked over to him looking to see if he was restrained, or just simply sitting there. When she saw that he was not tied down she was without words for a moment and just looked at him.
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" ..... You're totally okay with this?"
She said puzzled, the etiquette and formality lost from her voice in her confusion.

There was no deception, there was no misdirection, there was no subterfuge. Simply a man waiting to be fed from who knew what she was. This concept blew her mind.

This statement truly to Star by surprise. Here she was, about to feed off of a "blood bag" who willing wanted her to bite him. She could hardly wrap her mind around this concept.

▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" alrighty then...
"

She said in Ace Ventura fashion.
Just like this..:

Star proceeded to approach the man still finding this odd. She thought for a moment how should go about doing this. She prefers to bite people on the neck, like the traditional movie vampires. But she paused and though perhaps it would be more appropriate if she bites the wrist. Certainly she would not bite the man in the fashion that she did in the alley,
<oh god> she thought, <would he react the same??? Is the bite THAT pleasurable ?> there was only one way to find out.

She smiled and reached out to take his wrist and slowly brought it to her mouth. She softly kissed his skin and smelt him before even trying to extend her fangs. She clearly was nervous.
After a moment she extended her fangs and bit him Softly, taking great steps not to harm him. Star knew that he must "belong" to someone if he was so willing and polite about the whole ordeal. she did not want to accidentally harm him and piss off his keeper.

The man had a long neck and long sleeve sweater to cover his body. Star proceeded to pull one of his sleeves up and found many scars, one on top of the other, bite after bite. Star knew that bites could be easily covered or healed by licking the wound, it was unlikely that Ventrue didn't know that so may be this ghoul had a certain healing condition or may be there were so many bites over many years for the body to heal properly.

As she approached to model H9N1-32 skin she was aroused by the smell of cigarettes and nicotine, she memory also told him he was practically addicted to chocolate and did excercise often. His white skin and healthy complexion was appealing to the vamptress beast whom felt great pleasure to finally pierce with his fangs and reach for vitae.

The first sensation was stunning, a love greater than live itself, empowering, overwhelming, mind numbing... Star's undead heart suddenly came to live once more reviving old lost memories of her naive days when her love was innocent and wiped away all memories of bitter love she had accumulated over the years. While she holded to his wrist she knew that True Love was indeed possible, it was real, it was hers to enjoy forever.

Star gave only slight hesitation when she noticed his scars. <he has been quite used... > she thought as she proceeded to bite down.



The flavor of the man's blood and his scent or extremely alluring to Star, and she gave a soft moan as the blood accumulated in her mouth before she swallowed. The beast was pleased and sensation of euphoric bless that overtook her was unlike any of the others that she had fed off of.
There was no hate, or feeling of sadness that stired within her, only this strange sense of innocent love.

Star had long forgot this feeling, and long abobdone any thoughts of a love like this. The world had been to harsh and cruel to her to ever hold onto such things. And in this moment it was all she ever wanted. To find love, to be loved and accepted. To live in that Fairy Tail dream and let her pass be washed away. Sadly life is never like that, but in this moment it was, and she wanted to hold onto it for as long as possible.

Star was happy for once in her nights. The feeling of true love flooded her mind and it would have possibly swept her away into Oblivion if it was not for the man's beating heart slowing.

She softly pulled herself away from risking to destroy the very thing that was bringing her pleasure.
She savored and licked his wound as to not have hi. Bleed out and waste this precious elixir of the gods.

Star breathed heavy, lost in her feelings of enjoying the new life that was gifted to her dead body through the blood. she looked at the man double-checking if he was alright.

Star felt her heart beat unsync with the thralls and life and love to escape her rapidly. Eventually just the memory of the experience dragged inside her soul.

The ghoul was safe and sound. The nurse came in within the minute with a blood bag to assist the ghoul and replenish his blood once more. While Star was going out to meet Harold again the medical team was checking his vital signs and providing vitamins and other medicaments to help him recover.

Harold asked her.
"Was everything matching your expectation Madam?"

Star was actually saddened to feel the emotional connection break, usually she despises the connection between a mortal vessel and herself, but this time it was different. This time was something she cherished and wanted to hold on to.

She left the room unusually happy and actually content. Her picky beast was satisfied and so was she.

She greeted Harold with a warm smile.
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" Harold, that was above my expectations. Truly thank you for that experience. It will be something I will try to remember for nights to come. "
She said graciously, very happy but she got to experience these feelings and flavor of the thrall.

▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
"I believe I am ready to meet my sire again, I hope I haven't taken too long. "

Harold nodded and in no time they were back with Brian. He asked Becca.
"How did it go?"

Few minutes after a woman dressed like royalty started to walk down the table where they were sitting at. She was been followed by two ghouls in a line, both males dressed in black, one holding a suitcase and the other a black umbrella. The second ghoul advanced quickly to pull the chair and announce Lady Von Baden to the Gangrel, then the ghoul started to speak about courtesy rules and Brian snarled to the ghoul saying in a not so low voice.
"Tell your mistress that we don't need lessons of manners."

The ghoul apologized with a bow and withdraw enough to pull the chair for the Lady. Star could notice that everything already went south between these two.

Brian stood up and Lady Victoria crouched pulling her dress slightly up to present herself.
"I'm Praetor of Insurance Lady Victoria Von Baden, at your service."

He quickly replied.
"I'm Hell Song and this Star." he looked into her eyes intensely, defying.

Victoria was baffed and asked.
"I'm sorry did I bother you in any way?"

Brian replied razor sharp.
"We're guest of Lord Valentine and you've offended us by sending your ghoul to teach us some manners."

Victoria stood silent for a second trying to assest the comment and Brian said.
"You said you wanted to talk, now talk." then he sat down.

Victoria dismissed her ghouls with a move of her hand and sat down pulling in her own chair.
"Very well, Sir Hell Song. As I have offended you per haps I could redress the situation. Would you accept this peace offering?"

Re: Meeting Lady Victoria of Baden

Star returned to her father in good spirits, she was content and very satisfied. All in all, all of Star's experiences while being at the Chess Club have placed her in a very happy  and pleasant mood, not something Brian has seen much from her lately.
Brian//asked Becca.
"How did it go?"
She smiled warmly at her father and spoke properly in front of present company.
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" Sire, it was amazing! Truly above and beyond my expectations. The experience was strange, and so foreign, but exquisite! If not for Harold here, I do not think I would have enjoyed myself to such a degree. I'm very grateful. Truly whatever they are paying him, he deserves that and much more."

She said singing the Ghoul's praises, something Star is known NEVER to do judging from her views on Mortals. Brain could tell something might be starting to change within her, what ever she has been experiencing here at the Chess Club seem to be good for her.


Star waited patiently with her father wondering what business Lady Victoria wanted with them.
When she entered the room Star was a little surprised to see the woman dressed so fancy and with such a Entourage for a millitary interrogation.

When the Ghoul announced the woman's presence, and then immediately start to lecture them on etiquette, Star narrowed her eyes.
She also took this as an insult the same as her Father. Not only a insult towards them, but as a insult towards the Gangrel themselves. Being that Star was also prejudice to some degree, She was able to picked up on the "clan stereotype-prejudice" that was being displayed. "All Gangrel's are savages and ill mannered beasts" . Such prejudice could be "thought" but should never be "displayed", to do so would be considered  very rude.

Star stood and respectfully bowed when her father stood to greet Lady Victoria's exchange. Star remained respectfully quiet and let her Father voice his grievances and lead the conversation. She did not dare to interrupt, learning her lesson from Lady Valery from the night before. Only giving Lady Victoria a respectful nod when her father addressed her and introduced her.
"I'm Hell Song and this Star."
She patiently watch The exchange of "semi-pleasantries" play out, wondering when Lady Victoria was going to get to the true matter at hand, the reason she wanted to talk with them before the interrogation.

The situation was ackward for Victoria, her mission was actually to take it easy on the Gangrel and her daughter to built a possible alliance with them. After all Hell Song was the Childe of the Gangrel Primogen and a famous kindred due to his impressive combat skills.

There was no point to hide behind the ghoul blaming him for the insult that would mean she has no control over her thralls and of course that was unacceptable. She needed to take the blame and show some spine to turn things up with the Gangrel and dodge the situation, although she didn't know where the attack was comming from.

Brian smiled and said to the Harpy.
"We are in the House of Ventrue, a Chess Club. What does a Ventrue would do if offended in this Domain?"

Victoria didn't even flinch before replying.
"A duel would be in order, of course. To settle the disagreement and a Quest would be bestowed on the offender in the case of the offended wining or the issue would end if the offender wins the joust."

Brian was surprised by the vamptress response and quickly replied.
"What are the rules of engagement in this duels or jousts?"

Victoria explained that the offended should defy the offender with a symbolic gesture of reckoning, like a slap with a glove, the hand or a stick. Then the offender has the option to backdown and accept the humiliation or contest in a duel answering with the rules of the fight: duel or joust, weapons or barehanded. Usually a godfather or godmother is selected to guard the agreement and to set the conditions: to first blood, to the death or to the Final death. Depending on the severity of the disagreement and the decision is approved by the Duel Master of the Chess Club.

Brian nodded.
"Very well." then he turned to Star.

"Slap this woman in the face."

Victoria was surprised by the Gangrel order to his daughter and looked at her baffed by the unexpected result.

Star quietly listened to the exchange between the Ventrue Vamperess  and the Gangrel. She puzzled over the formally of "the duel" and took particular note of the comments made about it.
<1st blood, death and final death? Jesus, these people take their disagreements seriously>

HellSong wrote:"Slap this woman in the face."
<wait what???> star though as she gave her father equally baffled look that Lady Vectoria held before standing up to comply.

Star knew it would be seen as rude for her to question her Father's orders, especially if he was looked at as the status of her Sire. She did not dare wish to defy him, especially in present company.

Star locked her eyes with Lady Victoria and moved gracefully to her side, fully expecting her ghouls to try and stop her from striking their mistress.

▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" Forgive me Lady Victoria, Such a stereotypical prejudice should be kept in thought, and never displayed, to do so is consider rude My Lady. "
Star said formally and struck Lady Victoria's cheek with the back side of her palm. Then turned to her Father for approval as she took a step back away from the Ventrue.

Victoria's face was made of marble, not the delicate flower she appeared to be. The idea was to start the ritual not to crack her bones but Star got to the conclussion that even if she'd tried this was not an easy task. Victoria's perfect hair do was upset by the strike but her face wasn't move an inch.

The two ghouls at fair distance, dismissed by Victoria a few minutes ago were scandalized by this doing and one had to stop the other to prevent an interruption of kindred affairs. Once again the one trying to interrupt was the ghoul bringing the message in the first place.

Victoria had her back toward the ghouls but Brian was very interest to see their reactions. Something was smelling fishy about this whole deal. He projected in his mind the possibilities of such interruption with an odd look in his face. However, neither Victoria or Star could catch that reaction of him.

The Harpy stood up and said.
"I accept your challenge Kindred. We shall face again in the battle field with our swords to combat for honour."

Brian replied inmediately.
"I claim to be her godfather in this duel. Who is to be yours?"

Victoria said.
"I'll ask to Lord Valentine to be my godfather in this duel."

The Praetor was angry in the inside she was expecting to face the great Hell Song in a fair fight, even if she lost the Ventrue would see honour in her defeat but now she was forced to face the antitribu, a jack in the box for her. This whole situation could bring her whole reputation down and jepardize her mission to guide the antitribu through Agoge, another important task bestowed by her Sire. She needed to take this seriously.
