Star nodes and starts to consider the work needed and costs. This was not going to be a easy project and Star knew it would not be something done over night, or even over a month.

Star walks around knocking on the walls again and checking out the office and other rooms. Star tryed to in vision what the building might look like after a lot of work. She thought that a roof top V.I.P bar might be a good addition. But these were big dreams, she had lots to consider before making it a reality.

Star looked around for a bit and looked to Alison walking over to her and saying silently...
▂▂▂▂STAR (whisper)▂▂▂▂▂▂
" so.. What'cha think girl... With a Hell'a lot of work and dough this place has a great deal of potential for make'n it a lewd-crude & in de mood joint for a front.

Lota work though... Lota cash too... And I don't really know jack about renovations... I just got lots of ideas and a lot of imagination.  "

so.. What'cha think girl
She smiles and says.
"I like it, the vintage and it's also symbolic of the Ventrue don't you think?"

Lota work though... Lota cash too... And I don't really know jack about renovations... I just got lots of ideas and a lot of imagination. "
Baffed by Rebecca's comment Allison says cynically
"Don't worry country girl, someone will pay the bill. I'd if I had to change but I got no pockets."

After a few minutes Allison turned to Gordon and said.
"Gordon, we're oughta here. My regards for Miss Diana and miss Susan aight?"

Gordon bows respectfully and says his good bye to the kindreds.

Then Allison moves out of the building and looks at all the night life around and says.
"The problem is this shithole... there's a lot going on here."

Star was still not used to the Ventrue concept of wealth. She knew money came with power, and the Ventrue must have more then enough to spread around though out the Family. The concept of a poor-Ventrue must be unheard of... It would make the clan look bad, Star thought.

Star thanked the man respectively and thanks the man for his time. Telling Gordon that she will consider the property and be in touch. Than followed Alison out.

▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" I like it... The place has many possibilities... Though the location is noisy and saturated. Converting the old bank into a club might take too much business away from those others around it and cause unneeded drama.  
I would want to do something to add to the location not just added to what's already there.

Though I like idea of a club or strip hall.... But stripers and alcohol always bring drama....
Humm... A pool hall or gambling hall might be a good front too..  Lots of possibilities like I said...

Let's see what the next property offers...  "

She said happily

Allison was happy for Rebecca she went down the street non stop verbalizing how cool was this, reassuring Rebecca alot about the whole deal, since the clan 'had everything under control'. She headed down the subway in the 125th with Park Ave. The entrance was as expected stained by smog and rust, with people coming in and out constantly.

Shoping around (Star) - Page 2 Maxresdefault

As the vamptresses went down the narrow stairs a hiddeous smell came to them, it was a strange mixture of sweat and rancid urine. At the bottom of it they found a rancid man, smelling even worst than the subway, he had no legs and showing his gloved hand with two finger less asking for some cash.

The long dirty corridors with huge murals done with ceramic pieces, eventually lead them to the cashier to buy the Metro Card. They needed to take any of the 2 or 3 trains to the 110th street in Central Park North station to eventually walk down East side Harlem. There they choose to walk but Allison mentioned that the train #5 crossed all the way down to Manhattan once they passed by Central Park.

The subway was almost empty at this hour, many tired faces and some bumps trying to sleep the trip up and down from NoHo to DUMBO. Other than the usual noisy people and kinda crazy people the travel was enjoyable and they got without problems to their destiny.

Going back south the two vamptress now had Central Park to the right. The streets were definitely different from the last two places, more clean and were some people jogging and walking dogs, also many hotels and caffe instead of night clubs were open at this hour. Eventually, the two kindreds arrived to fully deattached house with two narrow gardens at each side.

The house has three floors, its very tall and slim having most of its area perpendicular to the street. In front of it was a woman in a business atire, holding a pack of folders and papers. Allison went straight to her and salute the real estate agent, introducing Rebecca.

Star left reassured that "the family" would take care of her needs, it was a unusual feeling, yet comforting.

She walked along with Allison and as they hit the subway Star crinkled her nose at the smell of the place. Even worse at the amputated panhandler bomb begging for money.

Star raised a eyebrow as she looked at him, then nuged Allison to give him some cash on her behalf. Being that Star still didn't have any money on her.
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" Toss dis'man some green for me..  Will ya.. Hard times hit us all.."
She said as she fain genuine pity for the man's struggles as Allison forked over a 20$ to the man.. Star smiled at the man and gave him the cash
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" Here ya go my dude,... Try to have a good night... Stay warm and Don't lose hope "
Star said with emulating wholesome sweetness and caring in her voice.

Star did not do this out of the kindness of her dead heart, but knew how valuable a "forgotten" could be for gathering information later on. Especially one that people overlook and relatively would stay in one place watching the coming and going of others. Star liked the homeless for this reason. And she hoped he would remember a pretty lady that was kind to him once if she ever met him again and might have need of information about the things he saw.

As they left the bum Star turned to Allison
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
"never forget the unwanted, they have many many uses and are often easily manipulated. They have eyes for things we don't often see.  "
Star said with a soft chuckle as they continued

Shoping around (Star) - Page 2 Skullb12


As they approach the house Star looked around and took on a more proper disposition when they were greeted by the realiter.

▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
"Good evening, thank you so much for making time for us. I'm looking forward to seeing the property. "
Star said politely with a warm smile

" Toss dis'man some green for me.. Will ya.. Hard times hit us all.."
Allison looks at the man with disgust and pulls a roll of twenties from her purse and gives it to Rebecca without fully understanding why she was being generous.

" Here ya go my dude,... Try to have a good night... Stay warm and Don't lose hope "
As Star gave the poor soul twenty box the man smiled and blessed Rebecca with all his faith for her good fortune.

"never forget the unwanted, they have many many uses and are often easily manipulated. They have eyes for things we don't often see. "
She rises an eyebrow and says with contempt
"I bet he won't remember you in an hour!"

As they approach the house Star looked around and took on a more proper disposition when they were greeted by the realiter.
The surroundings were to say the least very interesting. It was a sort of cultural hideout in Harlem with many cabarettes and coffee houses around with live musician announced in their billboards. Only one of them had a single lady singing old Etta James with a musical background from a machine.


The place was as expected a residential building with a basement and three floors up including the atic. Very spacious and well distributed, the place had no furniture, not even the appliances but it was ready to move in with all its services working, including the heating from an old boiler in the basement, totally out of regulation.

Star gave the man some cash, and gave him a warm and loving smile, trying to promote a genuine sense of caring. She made no effort to turn her nose up or look at him any less than a human being. Which was probably something he was not used to.
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" ...get some food & drink, stay warm friend. Its a cold night tonight."

And with that said she left the man hopefully in a more hopeful state.


I bet he won't remember you in an hour!"
Star cracked a smile and shrugged
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" Maybe.. Maybe not. You would be surprised. And a little kindness goes along way.

Besides how often do you think anyone give that bum the time of day, let alone more than spare change.... Hell, or even a glace for that matter without turning their nose up at him..

And even if he doesn't remember me, he will remembe that he will be able to fill his belly with cheep food and beer so he can live another night.

I'm telling you... The overlooked and unwanted are very useful... Sometimes even more than the Average Joe. Bums usually don't have a family to think about... They see things common people dont. They have low morals and are willing to do a lot more than you could imagine for a buck and Cigarette. All it takes is a little dough, a few kind words and you will have those mortals eating out of your hand without hardly any effort.  "

Star said with confidence, as though she has done this type of thing many times before. .
Star indeed was a very strange Ventrue, she understood the worth of the forgotten more than most, after all she was taught that humans were ether food or tools.... Or playthings on occasion.

Shoping around (Star) - Page 2 Skullb12

Star looked around very impressed with the place, she went ahead and asked the usual questions about the building's age and if there's been any Renovations done to it recently.
She knocked on the walls and ran her hand along the window frames as she looked out side. The place was beautiful and she thought it had many possibilities as she walked around and explored the basement and attic a like.

She also asked a very strange question to the realtor about the history of the house and about its tenants that used to live here. Not that she was implying that there was any criminal activity that took place in the house, such as someone being murdered. But the realtor was supposed to tell them if any such things happened on the property if they asked.

Allison shrugs at the end of Rebecca's long explaination without really caring about it. Still she seemed rather impressed by Star's respect for humanity. It was obvious that Hu looked up to her for that small gesture even if she was trying to portrait contempt.

building's age and if there's been any Renovations done to it recently...She knocked on the walls and ran her hand along the window frames as she looked out side...She also asked a very strange question to the realtor about the history of the house and about its tenants that used to live here.

The building was finished in 1947 for a contractor that made the entire block demolishing all factories abandone after the 30s great depression. From that moment all the houses were sold to an energy company as corporative houses for their employees, that was so until mid 1970s when the company sold the properties individually to each of their employees as part of payment in the second crack.

Over the years these employees sold it to different owners, this one in particular had two owners afterward. Each made renovations, the most recent is a woman Diana Vick, she changed all the wiring and water system and had all the leaks and other repairments to the atic's roof.

The walls were mostly premade with drywall and wood.Only the basement walls were of bricks. The neighbors windows in the sides of the house matched this house with little difference, making a fair sight to look at eachother. Behind was the back yard with a little more green space and a highfence to separate this property from the other.

Star smiled as she looked around the house. This property had potential for a good haven.  And she was glad that no one died here. She wasn't increasablly superstitious, but she knew that after all things she had seen so far ghost might be real too. And the last thing she wanted was to be haunted by a old man who died with a hard on after downing a whole bottle of Viagra.

Star wandered around the house. It was not as sturdy as the penthouses property they 1st saw, but that means it would be easy to remodeled if needed.

She started to wonder about all the people who had lived here, their families and lives. As she went from room to room she started to let her mind wander silently and a strange stray thought of a happy home life entered her mind.

Her thoughts imagined her and Phillip, living as mortals, married, raising children and celebrating the holidays in the main room in the presence of a large Christmas tree. The house fully decorated and the aroma of a holiday feast being prepared in the Kitchen by her father as his grandkids ran around excitedly awaiting Santa. The joy and happiness on Phillip's face as the spent time together as a family that Star would never know nearly made Star tear up for a moment with these thoughts. This was a life she would never have, and she stood there blankly looking at the empty room as she had to painfully pushed her fantasies aside And snap back to the harsh reality of being what she is now.

▂▂▂STAR [broken whisper]▂▂▂▂▂
" this house is ment for a family... Not for me... "
She said, her voice almost a whisper broken with sadness.

Star still lingered, pushing her thoughts aside.
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" .... I need to think about this.. "
She finally said, unable to come to any real conclusion about what she wanted.

After leaving the premises Allison goes to the closests public telephone and informs to Hayworth that their tour was over awaiting for further instructions. After a minute or so of her nodding and saying 'understood' she hangs giving her best regards to him.

She says.
"Dad wants us to meet with Susan and Vick right away. They need to talk to you and they'll take ya to the location of the summoning for the Union meeting."

Star starts to collect herself, pushing any thoughts she had of "that happy family" away from her mind.
She needed to think about practically and business, not about things she could never have.

She nods to Allison and smiles.
▂▂▂▂▂▂STAR▂▂▂▂▂▂
" great! Sounds good let's go."
