With the less than thrilling meeting with her new teammates, Annemie had a completely unplanned night ahead of her. She sat at the bar alone, letting her dark hair cover parts of her face and drape down about an inch over her drink.

"It's so sad...they must have loved Eion...they won't even look at me...they act as if I killed him to...replace him?"

Annemie looked up and ordered another glass of whisky. She couldn't stand being the third wheel...but this time...it was her duty. She would find a way to prove it to her teammates, somehow!

((Open))

The door swung open and a man entered the tavern. Like a gentleman he removed his hat immediately revealing his messy blond hair. He had a mustache as well and a face that looked 30ish. He wore a long black overcoat with four button cuffs held by cross shaped cufflinks.

He smiled and took a deep breath. Tavern air wasn't quite the same as saloon air, but he deffinately cought the scent of whiskey. Jack "Black" Heart felt at home once more. It would have been even better if the floor weren't so blasted solid. Once a man gets riverboat legs, it feels like the ground doesn't want to quite stay still beneth him.

He sat down next to to the pretty young thing he sighted. A simple "Ahl have what she's a havin'." Was his order.

"Ya ain't lookin' too cheery there pretty lady. What would drive a pretty young thang like yerself ta' drinkin'? Worse yet is drinkin' alone. Don't ya know whiskey aint no good, 'less ya sharin' it wit someone?"

Annemie looked out of the corner of her eye as she scanned the man next to him.

"I just haven't had anyone to drink with as of late."

He seemed polite enough...despite the awkward accent. Giving him a faint smile, she gulped the whisky like water and let loose a raspy cough.

"Sorry...I haven't had this stuff since my days of playing darts for cash in dusty ol' dens like this..."

Jack tipped his head to the side. "I jess happen ta be an ole hand at it muhself. Howsabout it little lady. Care to go a round with ole BlackJack?"
he said as he eyed Annemie's slender figure up and down.


She looked like a frail thing that belonged in the home, but acted completely different. She drank, she gambled. Now if she, swore, spat, and fought he'd have a keeper, Jack though.

"An howabout we make it interestin'? Winnuh buys drinks. After all I don't intend ta lose. But ta let a lady pay fer mah drink would be outright ungentlemanly of me." Said Jack with a cocky smile.

"Heh, sure. If you want to pay for my drink then by all means let us continue." A half-drunk and half-arrogant smirk appeared on the girl's face. "Although I admit I haven't played these kinds of games in a while." She had done this so many times before she felt like she could do it passed out. Gently lifting her glasses from the table, she calmy put the lenses over her eyes, pushing back her hair in the process. She didn't need them normally to beat most people, but in her slightly intoxicated state she wanted all the help she could get.

Plus this Blackjack didn't appear to be in the 'most people' catagory.

Before standing, Annemie took a look around the room. Her teammates were long gone, which was a little disappointing. The bartender was too tired to really care what was happening and the only other few customers in the tavern didn't appear to be very conscious of anything other than the bottom of their mugs. That meant Annemie could play with her full strength as opposed to acting mediocre so she could still get a few more people to play her for money later. ((note: her sense of justice allows her to do this guilt free because she knows that even if she tricked people into playing her by playing poorly, she ran an equal risk to losing to the player she was playing against. It goes a little deeper...ignore my ramblings.))

With a flick of her wrist, three darts shot from her robe into the spaces between each of her fingers on her left hand. Normally, she'd be carrying her needles in that sleeve, but she had a feeling this tavern would have a board and a couple players with some money. Besides, she spent all of her funds on alchemical supplies a couple days before and wasn't too keen of having a large tab. With her thumb and other hand she unhooked the three wires attached to the darts. She gave another light smile, glad that she was finally able to play her favorte sport once again, and bowed, wobbling only a bit. "Shall we begin?" she said, eyeing the dart board from across the room.

Jack swollowed his whiskey and ordered another, just as quickly.
"Ladies fust."

((Thinks of the Elvis song, A Little Less Conversation, for some reason. Probably the old soccer commercial...lol.))

Annemie laughed sweetly and patted Jack on the back. "Lady, eih? If you say so."

Sluggishly, Annemie drifts towards the board. She slowly lifts her left arm, and with three flicks of her wrist done at blinding speed, the three darts are flung towards the board. One dart gets a bulls-eye, the other an inner ring, and the other an inner ring on the exact opposite side. She swaggered back to the bar and took a gulp of whiskey from a fresh glass.

"Your move, Jacky. *hick*"

Jack aproached the board and retrieved the darts.

He took a moment and drank down his next glass of whiskey.

He took the first dart between his thumb and forefinger. He lined up his shot and took careful aim before unorthodoxically changing his grip and hurling the dart with a backhanded toss.

He swiftly followed with two more in a simillar manner. Where they landed. Identical to Annemie's almost exactly.

"Now waddaya make of that? What're the odds on somethin' like that happenin'?" jack said grinning.

"Well now...*cough*...impressive...lets kick it up a notch." she said while removing her darts from the board.

Annemie walked across the nearly empty room, picking up two small candles from the tables at the tavern. She lit each of them with her lighter. She placed one on a table across from her and another across from where Jack was standing, pushing in the tables as she went.

After placing the candle down (the one away from Jack), she ran towards the candle in front of Jack. She dove onto the floor, landing on her right arm while flinging a dart out of her left robe's arm and into her hand. She bounded from the floor with her right arm alone and tumbled/rolled forward, throwing a dart in mid-air and landing on the ground with a thud. The dart zipped through the air, blowing out the candle and hitting the bulls-eye of the board.

After several seconds, Annemie stood up, holding up a victory/peace sign, bobbing back and forth due to the booze. Her other hand rubbed her head (where she obviously landed on the second tumble).

"Whew...shit...I haven't done that trick in ages...whoo!" She took another swig of booze and plunked down in a seat next to Jack.

Jack borrowed annimie's lighter and relit both candles lining them up against the dart board side by side.

He took two darts in a single hand

"Jack launched into a backspring summersault bounding off his free hand and upon making a two point landing on both feet hurled the two darts simultaneously, snuffing out both candles in their passage.

Each dart landed borderline between the bullseye and inner ring.

"Now aint that a sight. How do ya reckon ya score somethin' like that? Right on the border'n all Lady luck sure is a fickle mistress."

Annemie pulled back her left arm and a thin wire attached to her dart allowed her to quickly retrieve the little thing. She set it aside on the table, unattaching the wire and she lifted a glass of whiskey again...then paused. She put it back down and blinked...then smiled, getting another idea. She allowed a sen-bon needle to whisp into her hand. She looked towards Jack and gave him a smile as if hinting to what she was thinking. As she did, she let the whiskey soak into the special wire/filiment on the end of the needle. Relighting the closest candle and taking out a cheap ring (from the Enlightened Fist, just appears to be a small scrap of metal really with some symbols etched into it). She tossed it into the air as she charged across the bar. Allowing the ring to bounce once and fly back into the air, she tossed her body through the air, throwing the needle through the candle, the ring, and hitting the outside ring of the target, almost but not quite opposite of Jack's shot.

As the wire touched the candle, it immediatly lit up, creating the illusion of a firey tail, like a comet. The ring floated on the string, illuminated in the small blaze. The alcohal quickly burnt out and Annemie didn't even remember wanting to keep a low profile.

Jack chuckled. "A fancy parlor trick ya got there. But if we're doin' trick shots I got one O' my own."

Jack placed a candle in front of the dartboard again and snuffed it out.

He then took a dart and pricked the back of his hand letting out a tiny drop of blood onto the tip of the dart. He reached into his coat and splashed a small amount of holy water onto the board then backed up.


Standing at the oposite side of the tavern he hurled the blood tipped dart toward the board. upon striking the bullsey the entire fixture burst into white flame for a brief moment before returning to normal. Oddly enough in spite of all this the dartboard was undamaged and the candle was unlit.

Annemie attempted to keep herself upright in a mockingly "gentlemen" like position as she gave the specticle a golf-clap. "Dazzling, sir, simply ravashing...a great pyrotechnic display of..." no longer being able to hold back a laugh, Annemie almost fell to the floor bawling at her own pathetic, drunken attempt at humor. Seeing an ale bottle lying on the floor beneith her, she had a funny thought. She lifted the dry shell and pulled out the cork. After a careful search for any visable liquids, she placed the bottle on a table against a wall. She ran to the other end of the room, turning rather silly falls into attempted tumbles. After a couple of these awkward leaps, she finally threw the dart towards the bottle, followed by a quick toss of the dart. The dart stabbed the cork, leading it finally into the bottle. Basically the same trick as the ring with a little less flair. The bottle was corked, but only by a little bit (proving that the strength of her throws have started to decrease with time and whiskey).

((sorry if this reads awkwardly. I'm at school and gotta go.))

Jack cocked his head to the side and shrugged. She was too drunk to notice the unlit candle. Generally when someone creates fire that burns without consuming it's a big deal or at least Moses thought so.

Jack blew it off though and proceeded. "It's a fair shot I'll give ya that. But a little lackin' in power. See ya didn't drive it all the way in. Let me finish it off fer ya."

Jack's throw was sublte. He whipped a dart off to the side with just a glance out of the corner of his eye. The impressive thing about it was that it didn't just strike the cork, but struck the back of the previous dart that Annemie had tossed and drove it and the cork entirely in.

Nikolai sighed as he continued on in his work- the contest was, at first, amusing. But he certainly DID notice Jack's little un-trick with the candle, and paying customers would get scared. Nikolai was a sharp guy, and he knew what that probably meant. Not to mention, they were getting a bit TOO drunk.

In the Bloodwine Tavern, this didn't happen often.

Karl and Ivan, the two bouncers, were much too amused by watching the display; and Nadia was too busy working the tables as usual. That left him to get the point across. Nikolai carefully bent down, picking up a shot glass from behind the counter and strolled up behind the two, facing the dartboard. He lazily tossed the shotglass underhand, and with a hollow *THUNKCLICK* it landed right on the ends of the darts that they had tossed, standing upright on the ersatz platform. Nikolai walked over, poured a bit of drink from his hip flask, pouring some of the clear liquid into it. He took his shotglass and offered it to Jack first.

"Drink."
