A few months after moving to Seattle, Ryan was feeling pretty good about life. He was settling into the Clan well, slipping into the (to him) comfortable role of being jack of all trades and master of none, a name that floated to the top when the brass needed somebody with good sense but didn't require specialized skills. He was also finding, somewhat to his surprise, that he was spending a fair bit of time with his King. Not on missions or in political discussions, at least not for the most part, but just hanging out. Being friends. It wasn't something he'd expected, but he found he quite liked it.

What he didn't like was his total and utter lack of a social life recently. Yeah, sure, he was still working on settling into a new Clan and getting ready to start up his practice, working on training up on large firearms which the Clan here put a lot more emphasis on than the one back home, plus keeping up with his friends and trying to make some new ones.

Which, okay, sort of highlighted that he didn't lack a social life, per se. What he lacked was a sex life. He could make all the excuses about not having the time and energy that he liked, but it didn't change the sad fact that he hadn't gotten laid or even gotten up close and personal with a woman in months.

Enough of that shit. Ryan threw on jeans and a t-shirt (why dress up when you were just going to get sweaty and probably have a drink spilled on you anyway?) and headed to Chop Suey. Not the kind of place that would ever compete with Pulse, but Chris Randall was playing tonight and that was a good enough excuse.

The narrow, too-hot club was always crowded, and the dance floor was always full. No matter what kind of music was playing. Tonight Randall was playing off his blues album and the crowd of hipsters, college students, and bored high-income twentysomethings in search of something interesting about themselves were loving it. Ry took a second to check the mass of writhing, grinding bodies all swaying to the insistent, unrelenting beat of Devil His Due and, after a moment to consider, plunged into the mess himself. He didn't really care who he was dancing with or against or next to. He was riding the music and the feel of sexed-up humans in close proximity and loving both. Giving himself over to both, letting his hands drift across the other dancers, letting them do the same to him. The faux-innocent orgy of the dance floor played itself out as it has a million times before and Ryan was only too happy to play.

Cael was still not happy with the life Ariel thought she had. His girl was not the girl he had spent so many years being protective of but wrapping her up and hiding her out from the world only made Ariel suspicious. Apparently she was under the impression that he was under some major pressure because he was acting completely weird. So Cael put his distance, and asked Aria to keep an eye on Ariel that night. he had a series of spies that he kept on the young lion. So far everything had been fine, but he knew how quickly that could change.

But Aria was not a good choice. she was under the impression that Ariel was a grown woman that even though she had been a mute killer only weeks ago, she had a history all of her own. And the only way to grow was to keep from making mistakes. Cael didn't know but Ariel and Aria had a deal. Don't get into fights, don't be a vampire snack, see you close to sunrise. Aria wasn't even at the club that night, she was at the academy waiting for a baby to show up. who gives away a few months old child to strangers? Aria would never understand it.

Ariel was enjoying the scene. Dressed in a dress that cost more then it should, she was in the middle of the orgy like dance, thrusting and moving in ways that Cael would never approve of and maybe that was why she took to it so vigorously. She had some man behind her, a woman before her but the sex didn't matter. it was almost tribal in the way the dance was performed. Giving over to the beat and ignoring what your daddy thinks. Cael wasn't her father but he took the role just as well as her biological would have had he been alive.

She yelled something to the girl in front of her before slipping free of them, letting the two strangers dance together while she made her way through the bar looking for a drink. She ordered a shot and a water. The vodka went down with a sting and the ice cold water helped the young lion feel better about being in the crowd club. It was then she spotted the cute guy. She knew Ryan in passing. she had been to the compound a couple of times and she was sure he had been to Moons once... it was hard to remember sometimes.

She finished her water and head back into the crowd, ignoring the people she was with and snaking up to Ryan, which was completely acceptable when you came to the club alone. She owed no one nothing and what was wrong with getting in close with just another random grabby boy on the over packed dance floor

Ryan didn't know Ariel's story, he just wasn't deep enough into the section of the Clan that worked with the Court. He knew that she was a Court lion, that she had a psychotically protective older brother who looked nothing like her, and that people hinted that one should be cautious around her. Other than that, nothing but her name.

Which meant that he had zero hesitation about wrapping an arm around her waist and pulling her in close, rolling their hips together until they were dancing crotch to crotch with their upper bodies moving free. The prickle of shifter power on top of the sex and glee that was already riding them felt that much better, and Ryan wasn't ashamed to wallow in it. Nothing felt better than flesh on flesh to their beasts, except only the touch of their own kind, and Ryan let his power sizzle happily around both of them as they danced.

The heel of her shoes gave her the perfect lift and made her just tall enough to fit effortlessly against him. Not that Ryan was the only person she was dancing wit. There were a few dedicated couples around the place but really it seemed more like a free for all. Ryan's arm kept her pressed up against him in a way that was to sexual to ignore but then again perfect for the scenario they were in.

His beast was different to hers, her lioness was gentle and feminine in her power but that didn't stop the leak of energy from playing along his skin and the skin of every person she danced with. She never locked away her power, not fully. She had been infected so long her lioness was her and she was her lioness. They were a single being and that strong female energy was hers just as much as it belonged to her animal.

Other shifters and sensitive humans would have felt the flow between them but Ariel wasn't watching anyone one face, she barely seemed to be paying attention to Ryan until she turned in his embrace. She flashed a smile as their eyes met. "Hey.' she shouted over the music in greeting, not really up for a chat but just acknowledging that yes she knew who he was and had no problem with his hands on approach.

"Hey." He leaned in so that he could shout sorta quietly into her ear, "You working tonight?" There could be a dozen reasons why she'd be here, dressed like this, because she was on the job. And if she was, he wouldn't try to push past the friendly bumping and grinding they had working right now. If not, though, he'd feel free to play as much as they both enjoyed.

The song changed to a blues classic, and again this really wasn't dancing music but again the crowd didn't care. Slower, harder, less sexual and more desperate. It did make it easier to talk without shouting, though.

The music changed, dirtier somehow and she gave a little shiver that ran up and down her spine and had nothing to do with who she was with. She had a secret love for blues and jazz and this was perfect. The sidhe had given her a very full history, and she could even remember her first visit to a jazz club, the deep music and rawness of it. Most people her age didn't get it but maybe that was why she handled being with vampires. she had more in common with them then people her own age. She hooked her hands behind his neck and snuggled suggestively against him. If they were alone it would have been a clear sex invite. Maybe even here in the crowd it still was.

She shook her head. "Not working." she told him, running her fingers down his neck, under the collar of his shirt and back up into his hair to tug it gently before she went back to hanging off him. "I didn't think I would see anyone I knew here." She told him, but to be fair she didn't really know him. She didn't know anyone but Cael. She just thought that she knew them. The effects of the fae were strong and total. And all the while she was wiggling close to him, her body slipping and sliding against him, the hem of her skirt short enough and rising as she rocked against him

Ryan had absolutely no compunction about wrapping one long-fingered hand around the back of Ariel's bare thigh as they danced, not grinding into her but definitely staying close. If she didn't like it she could definitely let him know it, and besides, it made it easier to talk.

"I love Chris Randall," he grinned at her as they moved. "Dirty blues, any dirty blues, just does it for me." He was a fan of Ben Morrow too, though didn't say it because A) He thought there was just a little too much satisfaction in the guy's music, it didn't quite fill his personal definition of dirty blues, and B) Leopards are comical and lame.

Ariel rose an eyebrow to him, wondering how the heck had she missed all of this? Not that they had a huge and complicated history but it seemed like something she should know. But why would he be lying. After all he was in the club like this, obviously being stupidly good looking meant he didn't need charm to get women to sleep with. Even without saying a thing she was tempted. He knew how to move, wasn't afraid to touch her and both of those things meant he was screwable in her books.

"its the voice that does it for me." She told him with a flirty bite on her lower lip as she let the atmosphere settle in around her. It was easy to feel natural here. She didn't often see a face she knew and the people who recognised her didn't know about Cael who could scare some people off. She moved with Ryan, not demanding anything from him but clearly narrowing her dance partner choices down to just him. It might take some effort for someone else to take her attention away from the rat. How had no one introduced them yet?

"Tristan did some good deals for me once on some rare vinyls he came across." It was an invite without Ariel being obvious about it. He could take it or leave it if he wanted too. Ariel would even be fine if it went no further then some dirty dance on the floor but that didn't mean she couldn't try and take it someone a little less crowded.

"Yeah?" A slow smile, Ryan's hand inched higher on the back of Ariel's thigh. Not too far, but he wasn't being subtle here. "I'd like to see 'em sometime, if you're willing."

It wasn't exactly what he'd come out looking for tonight, but maybe it was what he neeed. Beautiful girl, no strings, just have a good night and not worry too much about what the morning would bring. Ariel was undeniably hot, and the very fact that he barely knew her had an appeal to it. Ryan lived in a world of interconnections and tangled relationships, where every move had to be weighed against the impact it would have on families and politics. But Ariel was lovely, straightforward, and totally divorced from his real life. There was a lot to like about that.

"for you, always willing." she told him, the words a double meaning she did mean for him to get just like the way his hand kept moving up her leg and exposing more thigh. Daringly Ariel gently caught his lower lip in her teeth before she pulled away from him just enough without really loosing any contact at all. "not always able though." She did have work and she shared a place with Cael. Which normally didn't bug her at all. She was used to living with him after all and the dominance call of his lion soothed her own beast.

But it did mean she had limitations on what she was comfortable with doing in a space that she needed to share with a man she looked at as a father, brother and guardian. "If we leave now we should have a few hours though." She buried her hand in his hair and ran through it like she had a right to it. Although that wasn't out of ordinary for them tonight. Nothing was holding either of them back, touching like they had touched before.

"I imagine we could fill that time well." Ryan used her hand in his hair as an excuse to lean in close and kiss at the side of her throat, both caressing and and claiming. At least for a night. She smelled like cat and sex and sweat and some fruity, sweet perfume and he bruxed in approval of the scent, the way she felt pressed against him, the texture of her hair on his cheek.

"C'mon." He caught her hand and guided her out of the club and to his car, an older Jaguar JK that he maintained religiously because his father would kill him if he didn't. It had been his gift to himself when he paid off all his student loans, bought on a salvage title after it had been in a crash and he and his Dad restored it over a summer.

Once they were in he asked, "Moons?" He figured, but it wouldn't necessarily track. Maybe she wanted a little space between her and the overwhelming drama of Court.

she had no one to tell she was leaving, but she did miss having him sliding up against her. Not enough to pout but she noticed it. It might seem a little out of character and it was. Ariel was not the kind to take home random guys regularly. But it would happen from time to time and he wasn't technically a stranger. Even if she had some trouble trying to remember his name. But it seemed less important when she saw his car.

"wow." was what she said and once against she shot a sceptical look at him again. "Where have you been hiding?" she asked, running her hand over the back and side of her car before sliding into the passenger seat. She pulled the door closed but she was distracted by the interior of the car. The smells, the look, the mix of modern needs but personal taste. maybe she was easily impressed or she could still feel his lips against her throat and he really was crazy good looking.

She considered it but really where else could they go? "Unless you got something better at the Compound, Moons it is." she told him, flicking her hair over her shoulder and putting on her seatbelt before he could drive. She was a shifter and any accident couldn't really kill her but she liked this dress and blood stained

He grinned at her. "At the Compound or at work. Thus why we'll go ahead and go to Moons. Because I'm sick to death of people pounding on my door and suggesting that we get drunk and punch one another for a fun Friday night." It wasn't quite that bad. Quite. But he still wanted a change from the Compound.

Catching how she was looking at the car he smiled a little wider. Ry loved his baby. "You know a back way in where we won't get stopped by fifteen people wanting to tell us the gossip or recruit us to help out with some bullshit errand?" Mostly Ryan loved the way that the groups were all-hands-on-deck all the time, but now and then you wanted a little time to your damn self.

"Well with all the training I hear they put you through over there, down time must be a little hard core." she only knew stories. She had tried to join them on some training but a guy there told her it needed to be reviewed. So far she hadn't heard anything but she remained hopeful. many Moons was good but she needed a fresh challenge. Beating up some rats sounded like a fun challenge. "People don't usually stop me." She told him, boasting maybe a little bit at her rank in the security of Many Moons. "but I can smuggle you in."

The problem was she didn't know why people didn't stop her. Everyone knew the life she thought she had lived, and she believed it was respect that made people keep their distance. Her time was precious, don't waste it. Instead people were waiting for the snap, for something to go wrong, the magic to stop or for someone to say something that would snap her out of it. No one wanted to be the cause of making Ariel a mute killing machine again.

Once in the Moons parking lot she let him park and directed him around to the side entrance. Reaching into her bag she produced a key and let them in. The door was heavy, a regular human might have an issue with it, even a weak shifter would struggle but she opened it easily as if it was nothing, motioning him to follow her. Had he been any other kind of shifter then she wouldn't have brought him this way but he was a rat and they were loyal bound through their king to the master of the city.

Plus there was proper security even through the back ways of the building. Someone would have already spotted her when she opened the door. Which was why she looked directly at that first camera. Ariel had nothing to hide as long as Cael wasn't looking at the cameras that night. Which he shouldn't be but one could only hope. She stepped out of a concrete stairwell and onto the floor with her bedroom. "See, easy."

she grabbed the front of his shirt and pressed a kiss to his mouth just to remind him that they weren't here to test the security of Many Moons. She released him and went to her door, scenting for Cael and glad to find it empty. Maybe they could get away with this.

Ryan still had no idea that there was anything illicit or hazardous going on here, he was just glad that they didn't get distracted on their way. He'd been watching Ariel's ass as she walked and the more he did, the more this was seeming like a really fantastic idea.

"You're a superspy," he assured her as they reached her rooms, and he might have said more but she had a hold on him and kissing her was way more important than any clever commentary he might have been planning.

He let her check the rooms, basically approving because it read to him like a quick security check of the kind that well-trained personnel did when they'd been away from home and there was any reason to think somebody might have entered. And when she came back, he slid his arms around her and kissed her again, much slower and more involved this time. His hands slid down over her back and sides, his mouth tightened a little when he found the flattened bulge of the gun she wore, smiling into the kiss. But mostly he concentrated on kissing the taste of vodka and lion and some sweet toothpaste out of her mough and running his hands over the compact curves of her body.
