Cass shot Fenris a lightly reproving glare as he got lewd with Karma. Sure, so they had fucked, and it had been damn good. Still, she had no claim on him, and feeling jealous was something she wasn't entitled to. Cass, for her part, shook her head, smiling warmly at the woman who was just trying to do her job. "I'm good, thanks," she replied, scooping up a forkful of heavenly smooth creamed potatoes. "You any idea what time they're due to finish in there?"

Karma shook her head regretfully. "They've paid for 24/7 access to the room, so it really could be any time of night or day." She looked inquisitively at the Scions. "They're certainly not like any conference group I've ever hosted!" She fell short of asking what was going on... just.

"No?" Fenris seemed confused by Karma's assertion even though there was no earthly reason for him to be. The answer came with bite. "Must want to keep it a secret then." His face darkened, almost as if the lights had dimmed just for him. He couldn't help but recall telling her when they wanted her they'd come and find her.

Karma's face turned white, then red, and then she seemed to recover her composure. She nodded tightly to Fenris and Cass before reaching into her pocket, and casually placing a small envelope on the table. "These are with the compliments of the Wynn - prime seats at our gala show, Panegyris, this evening," she said crisply. "We sincerely hope that you will be our guests tonight." And with that, she stalked out of the room, her dignity just about intact.

Cass cast a glance at Fenris."Strange woman," she remarked mildly, placing her plate on the floor beside her, and heading over to the table. Just as Karma had promised, there were tickets for each of them inside. She frowned. "Didn't Leo give us tickets for this show as well," she asked. "Looks as though someone wants us to go see it, pretty damn badly."

Fenris grunted at the observation, too strange for his tastes and it was starting to make him suspicious. As for the show... "Or it's so bad they are giving the tickets away left and right, the old men foisting theirs off on us like some sort of 'gift'... and why would we leave our posts for a show?"

"Fair point," conceded Cass, shrugging as she sank back down onto the couch beside Fenris. "Why don't we just offer them to our parents instead?" Surely, that would be a way of finding out whether or not the show was terrible, or whether their divine parents were trying to tell them something.

"We have two sets, why not?" He grinned on the off chance they didn't know it was terrible, accepted, and then found out it was terrible the hard way. His father would pat him on the back for it, Thor would give ol' static cling the cold shoulder or embarrass her in public. All good.

Flicking a smirk at Fenris, Cass shrugged, leaning across and scooping up some of Fenris's potato, in payment for what he had swiped from her plate. "Sounds like a plan, then," she grinned. "This is if we're allowed to go at all, though."

As though summoned, Horus strode through the door. No-one had even noticed the doors to the conference room opening. "You may leave," he thundered. "You will attend my suite at the Luxor at midnight." He glanced at his watched. "Which means that you have a little less than seven hours in which to amuse yourselves. Do not be late."

Cass glanced up at the Egyptian. "We've been given these tickets to Panegyris... do you all want them?" Horus glared at Manannan's daughter. "You are all to attend the show this evening, is that clear? Be there at nine. Do not miss it." And with that, he stormed out of the room again, his demeanour making it very clear that the Scions were surplus to requirements.

"Ass." Fenris stated simply as Horus disappeared, uncaring whether or not the Egyptian or his kid heard him. Then he turned his focus to Cass. "Wanna be my +1? We can call it a date to make last night a little more proper."
