Log:
==[ Voodoo Lounge - Greenwich Village ]==
One must descend a flight of black slate stairs flanked by walls papered in rock concert programs before discovering...
This is no ordinary urban mecca. This is no sports bar, no yuppie hipster watering hole. This... is the famed Voodoo Lounge.The lights are recessed into the wall, and of a golden hue, dimmed low enough that one can see where one is going, but still be able to consider the atmosphere intimate. People more than a dozen feet away will appear as mere shadows until one is right up on them. The walls are paneled in mahogany wood. The bar, that travels down the left side of the room is teak with a black marble top, polished to a fare-thee-well. Taps are visible just past the lip of the countertop. There's a recess in it so that a bartender can slide drinks to the waiting patrons. Behind the bar, the expected mirror -- this one beveled on the edges. Glasses and more elaborate drinkware hangs upside down from a wooden rack above.
The barstools appear to be leather and wood, but they are reinforced to handle patrons of superhuman size. The floor is carpeted in plush brown carpet, thick enough to sink into, though nothing seems to ever reach it if anything is spilled. There are cozy tables and booths clustered at the front and back of the room. A long, thickly stuffed leather sofa, also in brown, is along the entire front wall and side wall. A hidden moving light casts random shapes and sigils around the room in muted hues -- slowly enough so it's ambience-enhancing rather than disorienting. Potted palms flank the door and stand in the corners. There are hanging plants above the tables, leaves dripping lazily down toward the floor, but not enough to impede anyone there. Carefully hidden speakers pipe music into the room that varies from the contemporary to the exotic. There is no television behind the bar. The back wall has a floor-to-ceiling fountain that trickles away serenely. A few feet in front of the back wall is a modest stage, also set with small tables if there's no one performing.The entire vibe is like someone set a bar in a cozy little alcove in some exotic place far removed from New York City.

==============================================================================
The line at the door started earlier than expected. Lines aren't usually a normal occurence at the Voodoo Lounge, especially for getting in. Thankfully the owner hired a couple of additional bouncers to handle the situation. The stage has been set up, with the required instruments and the waiterstaff and bartenders are busy taking drink orders and fixing drinks for people as they come in and find a place to sit either at a table or the bar.

The young Indian woman, Topaz is strangely not found behind the bar this evening, instead she is wandering the main floor playing the proper hostess, asking people how they are, if they need anything, the usual owner to customer chit chat to make sure everything is going okay.

Rex was doing final preparations. For a 'tone down' show like this tonight she had dressed rather moderately -at least, for Elf Rex. Ears proudly displayed, she wore a more traditional, bardic type garb that was appealing on her as she helped set up the equipment. The show was unplugged, and the musicians including herself numbered three; herself, a violinist, and a guitar player. Finally it was time to start and she wave a hand, the lights turned on as she tapped on a few keys, the sounds of the piano ringing out over the crowd, to the cheers of people who had waited a while to see this performance. A grin came over her face as her fingers splayed out as she adjusts the microphone "Testing! ahh there we go. Hello everyone! Welcome to the Voodoo lounge! You probably know me - The Sombre Tyrannosaur! Hello yes, I feel your love. We're not going to bother too much with talking tonight, so let's start the entertainment shall we? " She guestured three times to the violinist, who starts first in a nice, classic peice that sounded Norse in origin as the woman played along, singing in happy, easy tones
"There's wood on the fire, and food on the table, and blessings are heaped on our heads! The sun had gone down, but he'll join us again before anyone goes to their beds!
Some say this world is a passing distraction - and real life comes after you're dead! I say as long as there's plenty of mead, then this world is all that we need, we need! Then this world is all that we need!
So let's drink to the sun- more faithful a lover than any would find in this world! And let's drink to the honeybee buzzing the alchemist - spinning that love into gold!
Drink to the trees in our orchards that shower their dawn-coloured fruits on the grass.!
Drink to the rainfall and drink to our neighbor it all winds up in the glass, in the glass - it all winds up in the glass!"

When the lights go down and the music starts, Topaz makes her way back toward the bar area. On her way she will stop here and there to check on people at tables along the way, but she doesn't linger long. She doesn't want to distract them from their enjoyment of the music. Going behind the bar she helps the two bartenders there with the back up of drinks, occasionally sending glances across the bar and onto the stage.

Armand is here because its always good to do your best to support friends and friends of friends in certain situations...also wanting to know if he'll see elf ears or not and he's found himself a table by himself, a paper bag of some sort of glazed eclair like deserts on his table along with his shirley temple and he sips from his drink and watches the show. All his hair braided back out of his face in a singular braid and secured in a bun at the nape of his neck. He wear a dark green button down shirt with a pair of black jeans, dark green boots on his feet.

The song goes on for two more, the easy Chorus picked up by the crowd, and what bar doesnt like a good old drinking song? Smiling warmly, the Elven Rex finishes the piano with a brisk little peice, starting into a more classic number that a few folk get up to dance to. Spotting a familiar face in the crowd she waves to Armand with a warm smile before going back into the song, hardly skipping a beat at all. Her eyes then go towards Topaz, to see how she approved of the opening number of the night.

As the music plays the waitstaff moves through the crowded bar. It's standing room only on the weekends, but to have that on a weekday is pretty rare. The lone male waiter, the other two being female, seems to be familiar with the drinking song at least and sings along with the crowd.

Another of the waitress comes by Armand's table to check on him "Ready for another?" she gestures to his drink.

With the music on swing the drink orders slow down and once more Topaz moves from behind the bar, to set at one of the stools that oddly remained empty. Catching the look from Rex, she gives a sign of approval, before scanning the crowd again.

Armand applauds as it is appropriate and bows his head politely to the performer and he returns the wave before turning to the waitress and he takes a deep breath. "Yes more cherries on the side sil vou plait?" He tilts his head and offers a small half smile before turning back to the stage.

Beaming brightly, Rex finishes up the next song and states "I hope everyone's having a good time right? And behavin'? " she grinned widely at the responses "Good. Cause this isnt a concert, so we're aiming to behave here! Less mess to clean up at the end of the night for the wonderful staff here! LEt's do another song now. " she pauses, looking a little somber as she starts into the next one, the music easy and quiet.

"I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls, With vassals and serfs at my side. And of all who assembled within those walls that I was the hope and the pride. I had riches all too great to count - And a high ancestral name. " she paused a moment, then the music returned again
But I also dreamt which pleased me most
But I also dreamt which pleased me most
That you loved me still the same. That you loved me - You loved me still the same!"

One may note that more than a few of the customers who have shown up to watch the performance are in costumes, and not the superhero variety. Instead it's the ren-faire variety, with a good number of goth and steampunk variations thrown in for good measure. Strangly that isn't to different for the Voodoo Lounge. It attracts an eclectic crowd.

The blond waitress, who introduced herself as Kelly when she first took Armand's drink order, nods at his request, "Sure thing? Should I just bring the whole jar?" by her expression and tone its hard to tell if she is joking, but the wink she gives implys that it was and and goes off to get those plus the other drinks that are waiting for her to pick up without waiting for an answer.

Topaz applauds between songs, her attention split between the show on the stage and the crowd. As the owner she needs to be on the lookout just as much as the bouncers do, just in case someone gets to rowdy or offensive.

Armand is seated at his table, idly resting a hand on his bag of baked goods and just watching the show, shaking his head at Kelly and then murmuring his thanks in French when she heads on her way. He is listening to the music however.

Gogo slips into the room, having careully navigated the stares. It's not exactly a cowboy boot kind of place, but that's what she's wearing, cowboy boots and a dress made from old overalls. It would probably look very cute on someone else.

Rex Gregson is an elf right now, for Gogos' reference as she played the piano, singing what seems to be a Norse love song, of a lady in marble halls dreaming of knights and other things. She was waving to people as they passed the stage, eyes glittering brightly as she enjoys herself, every now and then the music changing abruptly as she experimented liberallyu.

Annie is a huge woman, a huge orange woman. She is a huge 9' tall orange woman with glossy orange skin, no nose, three fingers, glowing green eyes, pointy ears and an excess of muscle. Her arms dwarf those of a NFL lineman and her legs are truly massive. Luckily she's got enough curves in the right places so that it is hard to confuse her with a man, which takes a lot of curves to be fair.

If one can get past the lack of a nose or the glowing eyes, she has a pretty face. Her smile is oversized and her teeth are so white they actually have a little bit of a glow to them, with pronounced canines.

Not only is her body enormous, the proportions are inhuman. Her arms are far larger than a humans, her legs are incredibly thick. Her hair is about six feet in length, and she wears it pulled back into two long braids wrapped in golden yellow silk. A one piece 'swimsuit' covers her torso, with stylized Gs on each breast.

Gogo makes her way the tables, ducking her head to avoid all the hanging plants. Her battered hat is off her head, clutched in a hand, as she doesn't need any additional height in here. She finds herself a table where she can take a seat. It's not too close, but at least there's room for her to sit, and the chair seems able to handle her weight. Once that's determined, she turns her attention to the stage, smiling at the sight of the performer.

Gogo isn't sitting for long before a male waiter, his arms covered with tattoos, comes up to the table "Names Ricky, what can I get ya?" his accent marks him as a New York native and the fact that he doesn't bat an eyelash of her height or color means he is either really well trained, or just as jaded as anyone else who is from the city.

It isn't long before a shot glass full of cherries finds its way to Armand along with another Shirley Temple, delivered by the waitress in his area.

Recognising Gogo easily at this point, Rex waves to her quite a bit with a warm smile "Hello!" she states, hand over the mike "I havent seen you in ages! Save me a seat! I'll join you for break!" she calls over to the other one, eyes wide, loving the attention as she waves at the Violinist. This time, the music was sad and sweet as she went back to the piano again, playing a slow, somber peice "Oh Tocassa, your divine queen is dead!" On que, the two backuip performers ask together "Oh Sorrowful woman, from what cause did she die? " And then, grimly did Rex respond "By her own hand...

"I crawled back in... as was dreamt, as was sung! But from all this sin that drew me, sprung..." she trailed off, and then the piano barked sharply, picking up into a more military cadence almost as her voice came, stronger and harsher "I claim this murder - for my father! And for my killer - I return the favour! Lost in anger - I killed a stranger :I felt no pleasure... Now I know better!" and then again into the first line "I crawled back in - as was dreamt, as was sung! And from all my sin that drew me... sprung - "
My House (my house) - My kin!-

The city and queen that I won for. But all those whims shamed my - son..." and she paused, the piano continuing, alternating fast betweentwo notes in preparation of the next verse.

Gogo asks for wine from Ricky, but Ricky ifnorms her about the whole no wine thing, and she settles for Guinness. After watching the man head off to get her drink, she looks about and her smile fades a bit when she follows the cherries to the man who ordered the Shirley Temple. "Dang."Then she gets waved to by Rex, and she waves back. "Seat saved."

Having found out about the show Ruth had asked to go and so...a white haired African American woman accompanied the blindfolded girl into the club "Thank you yes, I'm grateful you had time to take me here, the distraction is welcome" to which she merely got a smile and a pat on her shoulder from Ororo, who looked like it benefited them both.

Gogo sits at a table out of the way as much as possible while she watches the performance. Rex is dressed up as an elf for some reason, but apparently this version of an elf can flay excellent music. Armand sits a few tables away, drinking a Shirley Temple, with a lot of extra maraschinos.

"I took your powers - and your bedchamber! She was my mother." a scoff "But she liked me BETTER. I called on the God of thunder! to avenge your murder... and I got my answer to the one that killed her..." getting somewhat into it, this song had the fixation of many in the bar now, a sort of power ballad as the pianist's hands danced over the keys, her eyes half closed as whispers came from the other two musicians - barely enough to be heard but tickling ones' ear, and every now and then a word comes out more clearly. Those who know their Literature may recognise it as Oedipus Tyrannus, filling a short gap in the main lyrics as the music danced through the air.

After taking a moment to do a walk around the floor as well as deliver drinks, including the mug of the dark beer to Gogo. Topaz returns to her seat at the bar. She is familiar with the classics of literature, and she finds herself chuckling at the song as she leans over the bar to refill her own glass from one of the taps.

Armand was busy lining his cherries up on his table as he listens to the music and he hesitates, looking up when he notices...Gogo! And he waves enthusiastically with a hint of a smile before taking another sip of his drink.

Just waking up from an earlier workout in the upstairs, Bill spent most of the day resting and getting ready for round two. After a call to the Avengers to inform them of his whereabouts, he opts to remain. Hearing the music downstairs, Bill makes his way down the stairs and into the main room of the bar. He hangs back getting a cognac from the bar and then moving towards Topaz, he offers her a smile and raises his glass to her.

Going into the line of crawling again, Rex catches sight of others entering, without missing any words she waves to each person entering, ensuring they each got attention from the singer even while she performed the sad, somewhat violent song of a dead lover and vengeance. "I crawled back in - as was dreamt, as was sung! But for all this sin sprung my - son! Woahooo - So when you see her... ask for her loverrr..." tilting her head back, she held the note a long moment as the music continued to pick up, into an almost frenzied state as the line was repeated again, and then "But with all I've been through who has... " a pause
"Won?"

Gogo lifts her Guinness to her mouth and takes a long sip, giving herself a nice foamy moustache before she settles the tall glass down to give Armand a wave in response. Then her attention drifts back to the singer and she wipes her mouth with the back of her hand.

Smiling at the music, Ruth didn't know the particular classic it referenced but that hardly mattered when there was good people and good music about. Tilting her head she waves toward Armand and then topaz and pauses with a gasp. Waving with a smile to Rex she dabs a finger at her nose and starts making her way over toward someone who had been absent for too long, with storm quick on her heels.

Seth arrives at the Lounge behind Storm, having told himself he'd come. Quietly, keeping his sunglasses, he takes in the mood of the place, smiling a little. With that, he moves over to the bar to get a soda. Next, he'll head towards the table Ruth and Storm are going to.

Despite it being standing room only the bar area proper is sparse, comparatively. Everyone wanting to be closer to the stage so they can see the performance better. Topaz smiles at the gesture Bill makes, but notes that he is about to get intercepted by a familiar teen girl, who she will be nice enough to gesture toward so he isn't surprised.

Catching the attention from Topaz, Sandman nods his head, but has a smile on his face. He figured Rex would draw a crowd of some familiar friends and students. He keeps his back towards the approaching mutants, but anticipates some sort of awkward greeting. He sips his cognac and places it on the bar to avoid any potential spillage.

When Ruth approaches baker it's with a big enthusiastic, nearly tackle of a hug from the small girl "Bill! oh thank goodness you're back we've missed you so much, yes thank you!"

Lyra makes her way into the lounge. Its hard to miss her given her height, build, curves, and of course the green skin and red hair.

Gogo lifts a brow when she catches sight of Sandman. Nah, it couldn't be. After another sip she stands up to get a better look, though with all the hanging plants in here it might not actually be a better view.

The soda now in his hand, Seth turns to see where Ruth went off to, only to see a familiar frame, and he frowns. Then, he approaches to get a better look at the man and see if it's true. And it is! He smiles a little, and approaches, "Either I'm going 'Sixth Sense', or I see a Sandman...", he directs to Bill.

Armand squints towards the living dead man for a few moments, head tilting from one head and then to the other and he blinks several times before slipping his cellphone from his pocket and lifts the phone to take a snapshot of the mirage before lowering the phone. He has a shirley temple to consume.

While she is not strong, her enthusiasm is enough to bowl over the Avenger. He stumbles slightly leaning against the bar and affectionately embraces the girl back while giving a nod to Storm. Being an X-Man, she is familiar with the idea of heroes 'dying' but not really. Looking to Seth, Bill smiles, "Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated." With Lyra, he shoots her a wave. Being a guest of the Avengers, she may be privy to information, that Sandman is alive. Looking around the room more, there is Gogo. . .wow Gogo and Lyra. . .he smiles and shoots her a wave as well. . .same to Armand.

Lyra notices the wave and does return it with one of her own before she moves more into the place glancing around a bit as she does.

Topaz has been waiting politly for the initial reunion to be over, before intruding on the moment with her own greetings "Ruth, Ms. Munroe, I am pleased that you could make it." she says to the two. Not knowing Seth she will give him a nod of greeting as well, "Welcome. If anyone would care for a drink just let Six or Kelly know and they will take care of it for you." she gestures to the two staff members she mentioned.

Ruth sniffles with a big smile up at the large man "But I saw you, the sword...please if you don't mind my asking, how are you alive again? Does mike know, please yes tell me, wet have to let him know, he was so upset at the news you were dead and so angry. He's awake now yes thank you were was asleep for a long time and miss grey had short hair, yes much has happened thank you. If you don't mind my asking, when are you returning to full duties like before?"

Anie makes her way over to Sandman, not knowing his real name, she offers him a thump upon the shoulder then says, "Hey big fellow. I'm glad the rumors I heard about you were all wrong. Let me buy you a drink?" She nods to the other well wishers, not knowing them.

Seth raises his soda in a gesture to Topaz, "I'm tended to for the moment, but thank you." He extends a hand to Topaz in greeting, "I'm Seth, by the way."

Making an awkward face at the bombardment of question from Blindfold, Bill simply smiles, "Long story for another time. I will call Mike later." He hugs her tightly one last time and then looks as Seth introduces himself to Topaz. He excuses himself and gestures for Armand and the colorful women, Gogo and Lyra to join this small group.

Lyra glances over towards the other for a moment and then back, "Hello." she says and gives a bit of a bow. She doesn't really get too close to anyone though.

"Topaz." she takes Seth's offered hand and gives it a polite shake before letting go quickly, "You are one of Bill's students too?" by Ruth's reaction she can safely assume that she is and since Seth and Ruth came in together.... A sympathetic look is given to Bill at the barrage from Ruth.

Ruth smiles brightly "I want to hear alkyl about it if you don't mind yes please another time but hopefully sometime soon" giving the big man a squeeze before turning her face toward topaz "Hello, it's good to meet you again yes thank you, I'll be sure to get something in a bit. How are you miss topaz if I might inquire please?"

Shooting Topaz a similar look as Ruth now goes to talk to her. Sandman looks over to Storm and introduces her to Lyra, "Lyra meet Ororo. Ororo meet Lyra." Storm extends her hand, "I must ask, if there is some relation to Jennifer or Bruce?" Bill walks over to Armand and Gogo, "Hey."

Armand freezes at his table where he was making little people out of his cherries and he slowly puts a cherry in his mouth before pushing the bag of eclairs on the table towards Bill as he passes by. "Ah...congratulations on the not being um, dead monsieur, please have a freshly baked pastry."

Lyra nods her head as she takes the hand and she does look like she is holding back on her strength. "A pleasure to meet you." she says and then nods, "You can say that Bruce is my father, or at least his alter ego is." she says and smiles a bit. "Its a long story, and unlike Jen or my father, I always am Green." she grins a bit.

Gogo snatches up a cherry from Armand's table, eating it then putting the unknotted stem back on the table with his collection, "That is certainly an odd thing to congratulate someone on. Congratulations on not being dead Armand. You're looking good."

Storm smiles, "Ah. . .I see. . .well please give your father my regards." Storm smiles and then looks over at the other students conversing with Topaz.

Sandman smiles at the offer of the baked goods, "Well thank you, Armand. And yes. It is nice to be alive." He gives her orange gal pal a hearty hug and looks to Armand, "How is Mike?"

Lyra looks over at Sandman for a moment and then back to Storm, "Um, yeah if I see him." she says and for a moment looks distant and then shakes her head a bit. She sighs and shrugs.

Ruth smiles toward Lyra "A very long story yes thank you" then turns back toward topaz "You must be feeling better miss topaz, yes please, seth is schoolmates of mine, we have some classes together" teaching a hand out to pat lyra's shoulder in a gesture of comfort.

Reaching out Topaz puts a gentle hand on Ruth's arm "Yes, much better than I was last time we saw each other." through the contact Ruth can probably tell that the Indian woman is much happier. Pulling her hand away, "You seem to be doing much better yourself as well.

Armand nods slowly to GoGo. "Merci...Gogo, Congratulations on still being as beautiful as ever Mademoiselle." He glances back to Bill and takes a deep breath. "I shall...have to see. I...he will be surprised to hear of this. Oui."

"Well, good, I heard you and he are living together. Good for you two. Glad you found each other, but be careful too." Bill gives a thumbs up in support. He looks to Gogo, "So how've you been lately? It's been a minute."

Ruth nods toward topaz "Things are add back to normal as they get at the school, yes thank you. Friends and teachers are back and reality isn't going won't anymore, things are much better, yes please"

Gogo laughs at Armand's comments, "Yeah. That's me. Beauty queen. Banned from supermodelling because I was getting all the jobs." Then she is being hugged, and she gives as good as she gets, squeezing Bill back. "So, damn. It is good to see you man."

Lyra does look over at Gogo and raises a brow for a moment and then finds a place to sit.

Armand blinks at Bill for a moment. "Ahh...oui, together." Blink Blink. He carefully slips his cellphone out again and gets to his feet. "I shall...now be going." He waves a hand to people he knows and makes for the exit rather quickly, dialing a number. "Mike...pick on the damn phone..." Armand has left the building.

The music continues to be played by the muscians on the stage. Parts of the crowd occasionally sing along if the chorus is particularly catchy. There is around of applause as one song ends and another begins.

The waitstaff continue to do there jos of serving up drinks and one of the waitresses stops by Lyra's table to get her drink order.

"I do not have much experience with American schools. I have to assume they are not how they are depicted on television?" honestly she doesn't have experience in any schools, being a product of an unusual form of home schooling, a glance is given at Ms. Munroe, she knows Ruth must go to a special school, but she doesn't know how special.

"See ya, Armand. . ." Bill shakes his head as he gets up and lets Lyra join them. He pats Gogo hard on the back. She is a strong girl. She can take it. He makes his way over to Topaz and Ruth. Walking right up to Topaz and leaning on the bar next to her.

Ruth smiles and waves toward Armand "Sorry my apologies miss topaz for ask the questions toward Bill, it was just a surprise. Not nearly add lax add they sound like they are on tv, no sorry, schools are more structured and scheduled then tv likes to depict from the sounds of it but the social stuff is there sometimes more or less drama then tv likes" not that Ruth knew what tv visually depicted of schools

Gogo watches Armand leave, then rubs at her temple a bit. "Seriously? I never knew. Learn something new everyday I guess." By that point, she's lost Bill, and she looks around for him, finding at the center of the fun.

Lyra nods and offers a green-skinned hand to Gogo, "Hello, I am Lyra," she offers as she smiles a bit.

"No apologies are needed Ruth. You were surprised, questions are natural." Topaz waves the apology off and listens to the rest of Ruth's explanation of school. "It sounds absolutly tedious." she makes room at the bar next to her as she senses Bill returning.

Ruth chuckles with a smile "Somewhat yes thank you but it teaches us what we need to know for our lives as adults. It was surprising that I didn't see it, though that is tricky to do sometimes, yes please" then turns toward Bill at her side "No more dieing ok please?"

Anyone entering the lounge will hear the lilting music of a band playing. At one end two literally colorful women, Gogo and Lyra engage in conversation. Storm stands off to the side while Ruth questions Topaz and Sandman relaxes by her fishing for a drink. Nodding his head and making a cross over his heart, "Cross my heart and hope to . . .not die?" He tilts his head as he winks to Topaz.

At that moment is when Wanda walks in, moving rather easily in her heels as she glances over towards Bill, laughing softly as she moves to him, "Hey, I thought X-Men were the ones that always came back?" She arches a brow at Sandman, teasing him lightly as he seems to be the main focus for her at the moment.

Smiling at the teasing and moving momentarily away Topaz and Ruth, he goes to hug the mystic mutant, lifting into the air. The Avengers never really believed he died and though some knew his status, information was kept confidential. "So how's my favorite wit. . .favorite mutant witch?"

Ruth smiles and chuckles "Good thing we hadn't buried you, yes very" she teases him before grinning as Wanda steals him away.

She nods, "Not to die would be appropiate. I'll hide the needles too." Topaz quips as she refers to the rest of the saying. As Bill goes to greet Wanda coming in she turns to the bar, and asks Six, to bring over some drinks for those of age and a soda for Ruth. "I do not think that would have been much of an inconvience." she replies to Ruth's comment.

Ruth grins toward topaz "depends what kind of container we used, yes please" giving sandman a smile and waves toward Wanda

Wanda was about to wave, but she gets glomped in a hug by Sandman, which she returns with a laugh, "It's good to see you, Bill." She gives Bill a wry look at the qualifier, then chuckles, "I'm... doing okay, all things considered."

Noting the hesitation in Wanda's voice. Bill tilts his head, "It's good to be back. I'll get the mission report to Steve when I pack up my stuff." He offers the last part in a lowered tone. Then he smiles when the drink are brought over for the adults. "Have you met Gogo?"

Topaz also greets Wanda with a raised hand, but does nothing to interrupt her conversation. A chuckle comes from her "You have a bit of a devious mind Ruth. Do they give have a class for that at that school you go to?" she takes the drinks meant for Ruth and puts it in her hand and then takes her own

Wanda shakes her head, "I haven't, no." She pauses as she registers the 'packing of stuff,' giving Sandman another curious look, but nothing more than that as she glances over in the direction he indicates.

Ruth blushes unwittingly with a soft chuckle "Not nearly add much add some of my school mates, no not nearly" smiling to topaz gratefully as a cold soda is out in her hand and she dips from the glass. "Yes I think it's our mandatory ethics class with Mr Rogers and miss frost"

Gesturing for Gogo to join them, Sandman watches as the band has played their last song. "I'm going to go talk to the band." He winks the mystic lady and makes his way to the band.

Topaz scans the crowd as the music trio winds down "If you will excuse me I have to check on the customers." she tells Ruth then makes sure Ruth is safely seated at the bar before going to make sure everyone has enjoyed themselves.
