Fancy Seeing You Here [F]

Post  meadowlark on Sat May 14, 2011 1:03 am

Roderich was at the park again. He'd located a bench earlier in the week that he preferred. It was along the edge of the pond where he could see across the water, and still be in the shade of some trees. The seat was close enough to the main path that he was able to quietly observe the humans on their daily jaunts. He was glad it was warming up, it meant more people were about, and since they were the reason he was here he was more than glad to see them out.

His violet eyes scanned the path as he leaned back on the bench, one elegant hand resting on the violin case at his side. He closed his eyes and let the sounds around him sweep over him, brushing his thoughts aside. One eyebrow arched as he heard a step behind him, accompanied by a rather familiar aura, "I didn't realize you'd been assigned here."

Memphis grinned, sitting on the back of the bench, his feet on what would generally be considered the seat. "Do I need to be assigned to show up?" he asked, tilting his head to one side. "I'm as surprised you were assigned here honestly. Been a while. I see your wardrobe hasn't changed much at all."

"Perhaps not, but usually there's a reason for one of you to be in a particular town. Though with you I suppose I shouldn't be surprised...." He glanced down at his clothes and then at the other, "You're not much better. You look like you stepped out of a sewing catalog from the Jazz Age."

The smaller just grinned broadly at him. "I really hope you're not implying I made my own clothes. Besides, the Jazz Age is coming back into style. It's one thing I do love about humans, their rampant nostalgia, especially for what they consider the good old days. And," he said, giving Roderich's outfit another look over. "I'm not nearly as obvious as you are."

Roderich's lips quirked upwards into a smirk. "True, but I like my suits like this, as much as it makes me stand out. Some people like it. Many think it's odd, but they figure that anyway with the instrument case." He glanced at the other, "So what have you been up to for the last century and a half? Or has it been longer?"

Memphis considered, fishing around his pockets before pulling out a cigarette case that looked like it had come from the same era as his clothes and a much newer lighter. "Hundred fifty or so? Sounds about right. I think it was the height of the Victorian Era... And you know, normal demony stuff. You?" he lit a cigarette as he was talking.

The Seraph shrugged slightly, "Angelic things." Mostly. "Spending time down here when I can, as per usual."

"We're far too old to change much," Memphis said, taking a drag of the cigarette. "Any excitement these past few decades?"

Roderich grimaced at the cigarette smoke, "Depends on what you would call excitement. Had a few narrow misses with some people I was supposed to be protecting during a couple of wars."

Still grinning, Memphis made sure to blow just a little bit of smoke the angel's way. "Which war? The last few were something else, I gotta say..."

Roderich waved a hand in front of his face to clear away some of the scent. "I suppose 'War' isn't what they're calling one of them, but the Second World War and one of the 'conflicts' immediately following it. I don't recall exactly which, they blur together in my mind."

Memphis snorted. "Call a war a war? Why would anyone do something like that?" He sighed softly at the next bit. "Well, true enough. Humans certainly start enough wars that it's hard to keep track of them all the time now a days..."

"And, not that there ever was but, all civility has gone down the drain. The entire world has been on the brink of a war that could wipe out their entire race for years. It seems to have simmered down some at least."

"Ah yes, the strangely named Cold War." Memphis shook his head slightly, watching humans walk around the park. "Those were some interesting times..."

Roderich shook his head, "I actually had to give up this get up for a while. Looking out of place was not a good plan at that point in time. I still haven't sorted the exact cause behind it, but I suppose they haven't either..."

"Humans? Sort their causes out?" Memphis laughed softly. "I doubt it. And yeah, I can see you having to change for a while. But what ever did you find to wear then? Since the era of gentlemen I can hardly imagine you in anything else?"

"A basic suit, like everyone else. It was dreadfully dull, and there weren't enough layers to it when it got too cold or too hot."

Memphis chuckled at that, watching the smoke as it lazily curled in front of his face. "You and your layers. You should have just invested in one of those long black coats that seemed in fashion." He paused for a beat. "So, still screwing around with human lovers?"

Roderich grimaced, "Those coats are an affront to good taste." He glanced at the demon, "I don't know that I'd put it that way..."

"Perhaps a bit closer. But, yes, if you must know. I'm still doing penance on and off for them. There's just something about humans, you know?"

The smaller laughed at that, and then hummed under his breath. "Hmmmm... don't I ever."

The auburn-haired angel rolled his eyes, "You are insufferable, you know that?"

"Me?" Memphis said in shock, hand not holding the cigarette on his chest and expression schooled into one of complete shock. "You wound me deeply, angel. I would have expected better from one of the heavenly host. Besides, you hang around often enough."

"You approached me, not the other way around, Memphis." The seraph remarked, dryly. "And I only wish the barb cut as far as your theatrics would sarcastically imply."
