♤Plain clothes and the Purple Rose♤(concluded)


Imperial Market - Chi'Ahli City, Kahndaq

  Saffron hued canvas stall walling swayed with the Kahndaqi wind. Each market standard merchant filled their space with only the finest wares, baubles, trinkets and faire yielding from a desert set atmosphere. Trade and commerce that only bedouin salesfolk could extend. People of all walks of life flooded through the canal like walk ways tightly beside each vending tent. Perusing each specialty nuance.

  Beside all of the marketplace bustle. A man awaited within the sole empty tent. Sitting across from an empty folding chair. The olive tinted carmel skinned man patted perspiration from his tightly braided cornrowed brow. Dark purple and black shaded spectacles hid his stark lavender eyes. Though his exquisite suit of fine black and silver thread, fit for business man or mafioso alike. Impressed a richly imposing royalty about him. His stature was purposed in aloof, yet comfortably fit posture. Without slouch, yet relaxed and toned. Hardly someone whom seemed meek. Though not extravagantly imposing neither. His jawline commanded a dark and staunch presence. Calm trim bearding that was just a shade past 5 oclock shadowing. And a keen unprovoked smile fell delicately on his firm but welcoming face.

This greeting he offered his guest as they entered the tent, while still sitting down holding only a moderately decorated cane like object before him.

"[sign in to see URL]'ve arrived!'' He warmly welcomed his expected.

Zero entered the tent. The muscle man did not take the heat well. It didn't help that he donned his black shirt and pants. His mask sat uncomfortably on his mouth, filling his lungs with the pain-dulling gases.

Scanning the tent to ensure all was as it seemed, he looked back to the man. Crossing his arms, Subject Zero made no motion to appear friendly or hostile. He just. .. was. He waited for the well dressed man to explain himself, why he contacted the Hoods to meet there.

Re: ♤Plain clothes and the Purple Rose♤


Khandaq during the summertime, not exactly the most hospitable place to have a meet up unless you wanted to have one with as little interference from nosy busy body capes. No one sane crossed Black Adam or test his decrees and the punishments in store for those that broke them. Franklin Kelly was the name on the passport but it was as much a disguise as the hooded figure he portrayed in the underworld of Gotham, the Penance Knight. Reddish brown hair almost rust, cut military short, Kelly stood right around six foot two. Dressed in plain khaki pants, jacket along with a white t shirt underneath. His green eyes were shaded by wrap around sun glasses, augmented with some special technology. "Well is this it?"

As the pair entered, and received the fellows greeting though vaguely offered. The host awaited the second arrival, before again commencing.

"Here we are [sign in to see URL] sure the curiousity is as thick on you as the humidity." His statement still a bit elusive. Perhaps 'professionally' cautious or outright foolishness. But both men, had been asked to attend this very out of the way meeting with an affiliate. One that had only sparingly gave audience in Gotham. Much else was mystery. Aside he had been one of Phalanx's associates.

"I apologize for the skull duggery. [sign in to see URL] [sign in to see URL] compromised. And the 'Waterworld' playground is Lytning's haven." He paused only briefly, in case either of the men had interjection.

Then added...

"Ive discovered who shot [sign in to see URL] why. And cannot ask [sign in to see URL] Lytning nor the Widow to take care of this. This will NOT be a sanctioned action of [sign in to see URL]. Im [sign in to see URL] am THE Freelancer. And the gunman is one of the best. I chose you for your ability, as much as your expendability to your organization." He held at the last passing "slight". Though rebuffed it with explanation.

"Which is perfect for this work. It cannot be one of .....the Victim's closest. You will be unassuming, you see?"

Zero listened closely. At the mention of his fallen boss and Jane, known as the widow, his brow furrowed. Jane hadnt been herself since everything happened. She was cold, callus, and in a way, frightening. Though always with a smile, her eyes now we're more dead then ever before. If he could bring some closure to the plant lady, he would do anything.

"So, who did it? " He asked in his low voice, his pale skin almost glowing in the shade of the tent.

"My investigation lead to a couple names but the Stormlord told me to back off. Something about the Society taking too much of an interest in the matter." The Hood's spy sat quietly waiting to see what the offer was. HE knew his position in the Burnley Syndicate was weak now at best considering Dark Lytning had moved his main operations overseas. "I am curious exactly what prey you are sending us after then."

"Consider this whole deal to be simply an "old war buddy" paying back a favor By doing a solid on the hitman. Thing is, i cant ace it myself. And dont trust any other SELLSWORDS to achieve such measures. Thats why I sought out the sort that surrounded [sign in to see URL] his every day life. But, before we move forward ...ill need both of you seperately to handle this alone. As far as the [sign in to see URL] a need to know basis for your own deniability. This all falls in my lap either way, as it was designed." He explained then turned to Penance. Ill need you at forward advance. There will be a pair to meet up with you just outside of New Zealand flatlands. A hole in the wall village... " he began with explaining to Pk. Then turned to Zero. "You however ill need at A night club as temporary Doorman. At the strike of midnight there should be a man with a very distinguishing handlebar mustache, and more than likely Cliche trench coat. " he said, as though it offered more relevance than it really had.

Zero nodded, his massive arms crossed before him. "A bouncer at a night club. I'll for right in. " he said, his breathing mask causing a small snag in the gas out was inhaling. He grimaced in pain before regaining his composure.

He looked at PK. "You going to be alright on your own?"

Kelly nodded in response to the strong man's question. "It has been some time but I have been to New Zealand once before . I should be fine." Which he had been, he had traveled over a large portion of the globe, in the employ of one Uncle Sugar. He adjusted his sun glasses. "So I am in , when do i need to be there?

Nodding with each proposals acceptance. Scythian addressed both men.

 Turning to Zero first.

"Once "mustache" arrives, call this number..."

Handing the mastodon of a Gentleman a stock business card with a field of silvered black and imprinted rose of purple behind a modestly centered mobile number.

"[sign in to see URL]. Await the instructions, is my best suggestion."

Then, taking from his interior coat pocket deliberately slow and easy. He maintained his trust factor by allowing the pair the object he went for was nothing more than a flash zip drive. Handing the lighter sized devicing to Kelly.

"Tbere are Virtuo-obsfucators seeded within the code. You need not worry for potential compromise. There will be a bit of information to brief over within the file folders of "Big Belly Chain year to date records, Otisburg and Burnley metro", as well as "refrigeration and ventilation schematics". Obviously neither will be what they are titled. But it should have you ready for phase 1 as well." To that end, Scythian stood up and reached to Zero offering parting handshake.

Then, as to grant them both their dictated and probably assumed reply.

"Leaving directly tomorrow would benefit you. By the weeks end, i hope to have made contact for phase 2. Thank you again. And [sign in to see URL] are provided these in payment.... " As he procures a set of gold chipped swipe cards resembling Masterswipe Creditcards.
"REMEMBER to leave the chip side in when typing out 32579 ...whether bank or retail check out. There is an alotted $50,000 for each of [sign in to see URL] of course. Those are obsfucated as well. Good luck!" Scythian adjusts his shades tight to his center temple and exits leaving the pair of men to their confidence.
