Lucent Mane reclined in the back of an understated black Lincoln limousine as it rolled through the nearly-empty streets in an old part of the city. His features were calm and collected as he spoke in low tones to Khlia, sitting opposite him, her feet kicked up on the small fold-out bar situated between the opposite-facing seats. She seemed more agitated, a white-knuckled fist balled around a tumbler of scotch.
"I don't like it." She nearly growled in a low tone, for at least the fifth time. "Who are they to tell US what to do? The could come meet us at the penthouse, or my bar, literally anywhere. 'Come alone'? What kind of shit is that? If we wanted him dead he already would be. It's not like us to take orders." She continued on, pausing only to drain the last of her scotch and toss the glass flippantly aside.
"It's a show of good faith...and the secrecy is important. If the other packs find out what we're doing here, it could force them into action before everything in settled. As much as I admire your Fangs' talents, they don't exactly an acumen for subterfuge. It's better to keep this between ourselves for the time being." Lucent responded impassively, checking his fine suit for creases and slicking back is hair as the limo rolled to a stop in front of the ancient wrought-iron gate of a large graveyard dotted here-and there with gnarled cedars that cast long shadows in the pale moonlight.
"Well, enough talkinng about it. We'll know if this was a waste of time or not shortly, come on." Lucent added, opening the door and stepping out into the cool night air, leaning up to a window to give a few terse commands to the driver, who turned back the way they came the moment the pair were out of the car.
Khlia glanced around and sniffed the air tentatively before shifting her nose and mouth into a canine snout and taking a deep breath, soaking in the myriad scents of the night, nodding and walking towards the gate with an air of confidence. Just two recent wolf-scents, a male and a female. So far so good, no ambush tonight.
