"So what was your place used to be before you owned it?" Henry asked Forest curiously.

Forest blinked then answered Henry, "Well, before I bought it and had it converted, it was actually an old paint factory that closed down.  It was a sturdy building and with a lot of work, and Lord and Lady knows how much money I got it converted.  In my world of origin I have a few other places like that here and there.  Some are converted while others I had to have built from scratch."

Henry sipped out of his crystal cup as he listened to her answer. He then smacked his lips just about the same time when she finally finished.

"I'd imagine getting all that lead out was quite the pain to make it habitable."

"That's why one hires Fae contractors," Forest replied with a grin as she lifted her glass of orange juice to him.  "Magic.  The quicker fixer upper."

"Quicker fixer upper, indeed," Henry agreed with another sip of his glass, "Another reminder that I should learn that art."

"I wouldn't know.  I'm of the school 'Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely'.  I mean, I know a spell or two where I can light fires, but . . ." she finished with a shrug.

"Oh I agree with that. Just that it might be something to help me on medical purposes," Henry smiled before finally making his last gulps of his glass.

"Healing spells!  Well, that would actually make a lot of sense.  Just you'd have to keep it on the down-low if you used them.  If people find out that you can cure cancer and what not . . ." Forest replied with a shrug.

Henry nodded as he understood where she was coming form.

"Yes, that would be a pain, wouldn't it?"

"Indeed it would be," Forest said with a sigh, "Like people wanting to become vampires without knowing all the odds and ends.  Let me tell you, I didn't want to be turned."

Jack raises a glass of whiskey. "That's the way it is with us usually. Choose some tough motherfucker, give 'em a bite, give 'em the rundown, and then send them on their merry way. Makes strong clanmates."

"Do you truly wish to learn, Henry? There are many things I could teach you, but limiting yourself to healing magic would be such a waste."

Forest looked at the Kindred and said, "I wish I was that lucky.  No, my Sire was a Roman Bastard and there's a reason why I'm such a moral fag."  She looked down at her half empty glass and added with grumble, "And why I can't have a normal, happy sex life."

"Be grateful for what you have." the Chosen Undead said, forcefully entering the conversation. "You'll be surprised what you'd miss when it is taken away from you."

With that, he finished his seventh shot of whiskey. "I can't even get drunk."

A pair of elegant, gloved hands clapped as the duet finished their song.

"Marvelous, indeed."

Vlad Drăculea clapped his hands together politely, making sure not to "injure" his crystal glass of wine, colored a deep red.

Quote from: Chosen Undead
"You'll be surprised what you'd miss when it is taken away from you."

"Truly, sound advice."

Vlad nodded his head and leaned back a little, elbows resting on the counter of the bar as he sipped from his wine, golden eyes watching the room with amusement.
