He held up the pin and examined it like it had a combination lock on it or something. "Wear it on what, kiddo?" Fenris wasn't even certain what a lapel pin if the word ever got brought up. Leo lit up a cigarette and Fenris snorted again to clear the scent from his nose. Grunting as Leo broke the rules already. Fenris wasn't hard up for rules but when they got laid down for the pack he towed the line or the whole pack dynamic was lost. What had they been told? "Oh, we were just flipping through those fat dossiers that we always get every time a deed of daring is required."

"On your jacket, on your dick... you think I care," sorted Leo, before eyeing Cass. "Careful wi' this one, honey, he's trouble."

Cass caught Fenris's eye and tried not to laugh. "I’m sure you can think of somewhere to wear it," she murmured, shrugging again under the weight of his arm.

Leo scowled at Fenris. "Loki's kids... you're always smartass little bastards, aintcha?" The cigarette smoke kept coming, even after Fern brought out Leo's eggs. "Y'all are here to provide security while your daddies have a big ole meetin' at the Wynn Hotel. You're to go there tomorrow af'noon, an' await instructions. That'll give y'all time to get some shuteye." He chowed down on another bite of eggs. "They're all stayin' at different hotels, so don't you be thinkin' to go there before they're ready, you hear me?" He slurped on his coffee. "Be there at five tomorrow. In the meantime..." He grubs around in another pocket. "Here." He tossed a pile of envelopes onto the table. "One each, don't be greedy."

"I'd need a bigger pin for my dick." Fenris rejoined matter of factly. He fired off a wink from the corner of his eye as he was referenced to Cass. Yeah, he was all sorts of trouble but so long as he had her back and she his she wouldn't have to worry about it over much. "Not bastards, obviously." He grinned down at Leo and willed the cigarette to keep killing the guy. "That makes more sense in some cases than others, though I won't name any names." Fenris hooked a thumb at Thor's kid as if she were the obvious weak link in the chain. He snagged up his envelope and held it away from his face as he opened it, one couldn't be too careful with Loki for a dad.

And there it was. A full blown laugh from Cass, who was no longer able to hide her amusement at the whole situation. "Dunno what you're findin' so funny, lady," snorted Leo. "Your dad's powerful pissed off about somethin', so I bets you're gonna cop it tomorra!" Leo ignored Fenris's comments about Thor's daughter, and sucked in a final drag on his cigarette. "Time for an' ole man to be goin', I think." Fenris opened his envelope, along with a couple of the others, to find $5000 in cash, $1000 in casino chips for the Wynn, and a ticket each to a show called Panegyris. Leo rose, coughing noisily. Cass shook her head. "Uuuuh, where are we staying tonight," she asked. Leo stared at her as though she was stupid. "I dunno, they never tole me that much. Pick somewhere that works for you - all together, mind you - I'm sure somethin'll work out." And with that, Leo doddered out.

Fenris grinned broad and wolfish at Cass’s laughter. When Leo claimed he didn't know why she was laughing Fenris slipped in a very casual, "Dick Pin" as an answer. Leo might have ignored the slight to Thor's daughter but Thor's daughter didn't, the blond woman bristling at the reference while Fenris idly poked the plastic chips in his envelope. Well, he was up a grand on that casino. He wasn't the gambling type, though he could just as easily drop the whole thing on a single spin of the roulette wheel as just cash it in and buy an extremely expensive hamburger made of Kobe cow. "I've got a room at the local by the hour. Two beds and everything."

So Leo had been a fat lot of use. Some cheap, crappy pins, nowhere for them to stay, some cash that might not even GET them somewhere to stay at this time of night, some chips, and a ticket to some terrible sounding show. Before Leo had even left the diner, the other Scions had started to argue, each of them seemingly wanting to stay at a hotel associated with their pantheons. "Ah, shut up, the lot of you," yelled Cass, tucking her envelope into her pocket without checking it. She glanced up at Fenris as he commented about where he was staying. "Seeing as we're gonna be here at least a week," she began, her voice practical. "Mightn't it be better to find somewhere a little more... stable?" She flashed him a grin. "Besides, I find the... through the wall noise at those 'by the hour' places more than a little... distracting."

"Eh." He responded the idea of it being distracting. "We don't want Aphrodite's kid getting distracted I guess." Fenris rolled his neck. "Has to take pets, but other than that we should be able to get a good accommodation on five grand each."

Cass smirked at the reference to Aphrodite's kid. "Yeah, probably for the best." Cass hefted her overnight bag onto her shoulder. "Look, whyn't we try the Wynn? After all, might as well be "on call", if we can?" Leo hadn't said anything about them not STAYING at the Wynn - just about them going looking for their parents. She waved to the waitress. "Can I have the check, please?" Chuntering to herself, Fern returned within a few seconds. She glanced at it strangely. "Eleven bucks? You sure this is right?" Hell, Fenris's food alone had to have cost that. Fern grunted and nodded, and Cass shrugged as she dug into her purse and handed over a twenty. "Keep the change." She glanced around the other Scions. "Well? You guys up for trying the Wynn first?"
