Me and Uosis: After all the shit that happened this week I needed to talk to someone… Preferably to someone who would be able to help me in this situation. I remembered that Mark had a psychologist following him around all the time, so I decided to ask him if I could have a chat with the good doctor.
Mark said it’s ok, as long as I help him with whatever dr. Uosis would ask in return. Once I agreed Mark called him up. I asked for some privacy and Mark obliged.
I told Uosis about Susie and how shitty I felt about all I did to her. He said I should try and make it up to her, but had no good thoughts how I could do that… I guess I could leave a letter with a way for her to establish contact herself… But I guess that will have to wait. I have done way too much already.
I also asked him about Albert’s outbreak of emotion, all he said was that it could be something, but I should ask Albert himself.
Alberts announcement: After another meeting with Cartwright Albert brought us cryptic news. Apparently Cartwright himself has been busy, and has prepared us a happy surprise. All we were told was to survive… Seriously? Survive? What kind of shit are we getting ourselves into… The only other thing we were told was that the shit is going down on Wednesday.
After this lovely news flash, I had an issue to discuss… Albert… He was the only one of us seen frequenting the clinic, which is kind of a security risk… I offered Amir to teach Albert obfuscate, so we would all be safer. I would have gladly thought him myself, but I guess a greater attachment between him and me could become a burden to all.
Kiddiepooler’s meeting: Tuesday evening we all got a message on our beepers. We were all called to the fireplace room… Wondering who fucked up this time, we were off…
Once inside, we set up shop at the table closest to the exit. In case this goes south we may be in the clear. As we settled down Donald came over and wanted to chat with Albert. He wanted to chat in private (he said something about not sharing secrets) and Albert went away to chat… Little did they know, they were still in my earshot.
Donald knew we were working with Cartwright… Long story short, he wants to be helpful and maybe, just maybe get on the Invictus good side. This got me wondering, maybe I should try for a position in the Invictus…
Soon after Albert returned, and told us of Donald’s offer, the sheriff came on to the stage (I chose to keep the fact that I heard it all to myself, no use blabbing about everything). His message was both frightening and fortunate… For one night only, the only rule that counts for anything in the kiddiepool is the masquerade… Seems like we have a legal way of dispatching the hindus… Sadly, the legality wasn’t the main issue we had.
After the announcement Arshad andTamas came to us with a plan of killing Daniel and his crew. This was an opportunity too good to pass up. Before anyone of us said anything I told them to meet us up a few hours to plan it all. They agreed…
Once back in the clinic, we decided to set Arshad and Tamas up, and kill them using Daniel… In other words, we lead them to Daniel like lambs (although I have no idea what kind of lamb Arshad is supposed to be) to the slaughter…
Tamas and Arshad visits Clinic: The hindus came over as planned. We agreed to attack Daniel in his home, split up into groups, ambush them… Plans were flawed but workable, just as we needed.
The general idea was that me, Arshad and some others would come in through the front (obfuscated) while Tamas andAmir guard the rear. We surprise them and kill them all.
While this was happening, Albert dominated Arshad to drop his weapons if he tries to attack anyone in Daniels group. This will surely give us the needed advantage.
Deal with Daniel: Once Arshad and Tamas left, I went away to deal with Daniel. Mark (for reasons unknown) wanted to come as backup. We all told him it was not a good idea (with all the history between them), but he still tagged along. We split up as I approached their door… I knocked and once they opened up I told them I had a deal.
I was taken upstairs where they were watching some game… I told Daniel I had a deal that could save their lives. Once I had their attention I tried to make a deal. At first Daniel was suspicious, since we and the hindus were allegedly friends. I told him they were becoming a threat, and we made a deal…. I kind of suspect that he will trick us out of most of the dealings, but since we don’t plan on staying here long I didn’t really care.
As I was leaving, Daniel said I should check their mailbox early next night in case they come up with some creative plans.
Checking the mail: The moment I woke up I went to check Daniels mail.They left me a note saying we should split Arshad and Tamas up and get Arshad to visit the basement. Basement seemed as the logical place for an ambush, so I just wrote “make some noise there then” on the back of the note, and pinned it to the inside of their door.
Fighting: We met up with the hindus, and set out to Daniels. Just as planned we split up and Arshad, Mark and I went up front. I opened the door and quickly checked for the note. It was gone. Just as we entered the house, we heard some noise in the basement. I pointed to Arshad to check it out, and we were right behind him. If we left him alone it would be too suspicious…
A few steps down I smelled gas… Just as I was about to run, I noticed Arshad had already jumped over us and was clear… The gas exploded… I got most of the blast, but it seemed like Mark had a few burns of his own. A fuckin’ bomb… Those damn bastards could at the very least told us… If they did this would have worked… Damn shitforbrains, Arshad‘s death was just an obfuscate away and they blew it… Any fuckin’ way, I heard Daniels crew coming down for their fight, I healed some of my wounds fighting the beast trying to run.
I saw Arshad drop his blades, so fighting an inner battle of my own against the wishes of my beast I hid both the weapons before subcumming and running away.
As soon as I regained my senses, I returned to the house. The fight was over and both Arshad and Tamas laid torpid.
After some well deserved screaming towards Daniel I calmed down. Albert asked Daniel why not kill them and they said there were no need. I offered to carry them home and leave them, so we did. We split Arshad’s blades amongst our groups as a symbol of good faith.
Murdering: Once Daniels group left, only I and Albert remained. I staked Arshad (just in case) and we started thinking what we should do.
To my surprise, he went for diablerie… This is not ok. I stopped him and talked him out of it. Tempting though it may be, there are some lines you just don’t cross. As he left to get gas and Rebeka, I looked around. The only things worth anything were Tamas’ sword and an altair… The altair looked interesting, but I had no idea what it was, so I packed it up for own research…
As Albert returned, we dragged the two of them down to the basement. There Albert dominated Rebeka to light the match and forget it ever happened…
I walked in there once they were only ash… They were definitely dead… Yet somehow I felt little remorse. 14th, 15th… Maybe I should stop counting?.. We all are monsters after all, maybe I should just embrace it all…
