Chapter 1 - Hello (Again?)

Vegas... the ultimate City of Dreams. Or nightmares, if one of your parents happens to be a god. Closed game - Fenris & Cass MacLarney.

Cass smirked as Fenris commented on the lax morality of the Greek pantheon. Greeks, Romans, Aztecs, Persians, not to mention the Norse... it seemed that each group had their own "fuck and fuck alike" policy. "Gotta admit, I wouldn't even have placed you as Aesir from your looks," she said, shrugging. "And certainly wouldn't have expected you to be a hard man." Cass smiled ruefully. "I'm more predictable, me, making use of the gifts from my dad. I'm a forensic pathologist with the FBI. The whole 'death' thing comes in pretty handy." Not to mention her investigative knack, and various other bits and pieces.

"I've never liked muscled blondes either," Cass replied innocently, enjoying the light teasing being batted back and forth between she and Fenris. However, his one fingered salute to the man who was clearly there to talk to all the Scions was possibly a little too much. "You really wanna risk pissing off someone who might be a god? Or, even worse, a tame Titanspawn?" Cass gave Fenris a pointed look, followed up with a grin. "Besides, the sooner we get things sorted here, the sooner I can find somewhere to stay and get a few hours of sleep." She stood, picking up her coat, an overnight bag, and her coffee. "You coming?"

He nodded, not specifically knowing what her job entailed other than she believed it had something to do with her inherited nature as the daughter of a death god. Good for her. It wasn't what she said that interested him, really, he just liked the -way- she said it. "Helps to have a license for the hand cannon too, I'm sure." He gave her another half grin as she subtly played back with his casual comments with a subtle flirtation of her own.

"We Aesir are known for our irreverence, Loki and his progeny in particular. What can I say? I know a guy who puts too proud gods in their place and I don't fear the Titanspawn." Her grin got one from him. "For you, darlin'? I wouldn't be me if I gave up on our mutual protection agreement just now." He swept the last of the pie from the plate into his mouth and followed after, sticking the gloves in the pocket of his leather jacket. Might as well meet the Omegas.

Cass simply smiled at Fenris's comment on her gun, shrugging lightly. "It's certainly not a hindrance," she agreed, taking one last sour-faced sip of the coffee. If she didn't stop drinking it, she'd be up all night. "And I do love a little irreverence," she grinned, quirking up an eyebrow at the tall man sat in front of her. "Makes life interesting. Don't you think?" Cass tossed him an open, honest grin as he agreed to join her with the others, and headed off down the diner.

The white-haired man was yelling out to the waitress. "And don't let that damn Meskin do those eggs all sloppy, you hear? I like them good an' hard!" Drawing level with him, Cass glanced at the other Scions, a narrow smile in place. "I hope we didn't miss the party?"

"Oh, I can worship with the best of them... when I find something worth worshipping." Fenris gave her a wink and stood, following her across the place. Fenris couldn't help himself, he leaned in close as they approached and overheard the new guy shouting about his eggs, whispering in Cass’s ear. "That's what she said." Fenris put an arm around Cass’s shoulders and grinned at the table of Scions as asked whether they had missed the party. "Cause y'all sure did."

The wink was almost indecent, especially for such a public place, and Cass merely afforded Fenris a lopsided smile of her own before sashaying across the diner. She chuckled as the tall man leaned down and whispered in her ear before slipping his arm in an all-too-familiar way around her shoulders.

The white haired man turned and snorted. "Hands off the goods, Lokison, hands off the goods," he barked, before breaking into a smoker's cough. "You'll have plenty of time to get to know each other over the next week or two." He shoved his hands into his pockets, bringing out fistfuls of trinkets and dumping them onto the table. "Name's Leo. An' these here are for you." He passed out cheap lapel pins - the kind you get free in casinos, or as promotional items - to each of the Scions. Fenris's was in the shape of a wolf, Cass's a boat. Each Scion received something relevant to their divine parent. "So... whatchoo kids been din' since you got into town?"

"I haven't put my hands on any goods. Just keeping her shoulders warm." He snorted air out of his nose to clear it and then scented the surroundings quietly. When it came out he picked up his lapel pin and grunted at the 'originality' of a wolf. "A pin? What am I supposed to do with this?"

"I know issa not much, but it's the thought that counts," Leo replied dismissively. "You're gonna all need them, 'ccordin' to the big shots." He didn't like the word "gods", and never would, but they called the shots.

Cass frowned a little as she took her pin - tacky little bit of tat that it was - before shrugging and pinning it to her jacket. Sometimes, it was best not to argue where her father was concerned. "I think you're supposed to wear it," Cass chuckled to Fenris.

Leo looked shrewdly around the group of Scions. "Which one of ya has Horus for a daddy... oh, wait. YOU." He pointed at Horus's son. "Oh boy, your daddy's got a job for you, yes he has." The old man chuckled. Leo pulled out a cigarette, lit it, and sucked deeply on it, just as his coffee arrived. "Thanks, darlin’," he said to Fern, slapping her on her ass as she walked away, before reaching into his pocket and pouring a healthy dose of whisky from a hip flask into his coffee. "So, whatchoo kids bin tole 'bout why you're here?"
