A small Burrough where much of the Asian population lives.

Adele walked down the cold and rainy street, her bright green windbreaker flapping about as she zipped it up and raised an umbrella. She was headed somewhere, as one could tell from the purpose within her stride. One final step. She but her lightly colored lip and quickened her pace. No more fingerprints. The one thing that would make her untraceable. She found the correct storefront, a small art sales store, and pushed open the brown and decrepit door as bells tinkled and an overwhelming scent if incense washed over her.

Nik (anxious-morality) | 27 comments Rowan sat behind the counter at her bar, at the edge of the Chinese Quarter. She mixed up a margarita for a customer and slid it down the bar. She reopened her novel and resumed reading. Business was slow. Both her bar and her other line of work. But she tried to stay positive. She pulled her brown hair into a low ponytail, tired of it brushing her face as she tried to read. The air smelled strongly of booze, with a mix of the scent of sage that came from her. She flipped the page of her book, waiting for something to happen

Adele strode in, though her steps were altered to a smaller and less smooth gait, her boots squeaking slightly on the tiled floor. She walked to the door and sat down, running a hand through her blonde locks, pushing her glasses up on her nose. She nodded to the bartender, getting her attention with a gentle smile. "Yes. A vodka and tonic on the rocks. Three olives." she called in a posh, upper east side accent, leaning against the bar, catching the woman's eye in a certain way.

Nik (anxious-morality) | 27 comments She understood the look. She put her novel down sizing the woman up. She smiled. This should be interesting. "coming right'm" she did a sarcastic curtsie. She turned to work her magic with the liquor. She finished and place the drink in front of her. "What can i help you with?" she asked her

Avril of Themyscira | 668 comments Mod
"Everything" she smiled politely and played with the long golden locket she wore, a feigned habit of this new character she created. She found, that over time, she changed character so much sometimes she forgot who she was, what her own habits and idiosyncracies were. "Name is Tamara. Tamara Connor" she nodded curtly, though it was kind and warm, and she fingered through the small and subtle waves of her hair as the club lights flashed.

Nik (anxious-morality) | 27 comments Rowan smirked " nice to meet you Tamara. Im Rowan Nickelson. Come with me and we'll talk... more privately." she said, her sharp features made her smile like scary and menacing

Adele nodded, pretending to be the slightest bit frightened by the woman, as in character. She supposed an inexperienced young girl on the run was the best angle to play. "Alright" she rose and followed her into a dark back room, clutching the glass in her hands, which had many rings on her delicate fingers. The door snapped shut and she looked up "apprehensively" to the taller, beautiful girl.

message 9: by Nik (new)

Nik (anxious-morality) | 27 comments She smiled at her
"so you want me to forge you a whole new identity?" she asked. She got right to the point " or do you want information on someone's skeletons?" She poured herself some whiskey in a large glass.

Avril of Themyscira | 668 comments Mod
"Both," she whispered, taking her black trench coat off and folding it over her arm, leaning against the wall. "A man named Theo Davies." she had known him in high school and chose his name at random from her memory. "And yes. Hear you're the best in the business." she nodded.

message 11: by Nik (new)

Nik (anxious-morality) | 27 comments She nodded and racked her memory. " hmm married, He has a 2 year old and another on the way. He is currently cheating on his wife with 5 other women and is looking for a sixth." She moved to her desk, opening a drawer

Avril of Themyscira | 668 comments Mod
"Figured" she noted quietly, her mind sparking upon a thought. "Any other information? Adress? Phone?" she asked, following her to her desk. It occured to her that having an affair with someone whom she happened to know was a very sucessful business man would make her cover that much better.

message 13: by Nik (new)

Nik (anxious-morality) | 27 comments She pulled out some fake birth certificates,some drivers licences, and many other things. " i don't have a phone number, or an address. But i do know that he comes here every Friday evening at about 9." she said. She looked at the girl " what would you like your new name to be?"

Avril of Themyscira | 668 comments Mod
"Keep...keep it the same please." she whispered, interlacing her fingers. She had a charming and nervous innocence about her, flipping her hair in her fingers, her perfume light and full of flowers and citrus. "These are..the highest quality available, correct?" she whispered

message 15: by Nik (new)

Nik (anxious-morality) | 27 comments "Best in London." she said filling in the names. " age? " she asked. She took a long sip of her drink.

Avril of Themyscira | 668 comments Mod
"Twenty three" she nodded, twirling a long golden strand in her fingers, her brown polished boots scuffing the floor, biting her lip nervously. "So he's here every Friday?"

message 17: by Nik (new)

Nik (anxious-morality) | 27 comments She wrote that down. " yep. Every week. He likes to check out the girls in the bar. That's hoe he picked up girlfriend number 5"

Avril of Themyscira | 668 comments Mod
She nodded. "Well. Be expecting me tomorrow" she smirked softly, licking her pastel pink lips. She watched the woman's careful hands work, sighing softly.

message 19: by Nik (new)

Nik (anxious-morality) | 27 comments She grinned " ill be sure your paperwork is ready before then." she said. She continued writing in information. " ill need a picture though. did you bring one?"

Avril of Themyscira | 668 comments Mod
She produced a small photo from her cluttered wallet, unfolding it gently and smoothing it out.

message 21: by Nik (new)

Nik (anxious-morality) | 27 comments She looked it over.
" Good. Now go. Ill have it ready when you come back tomorrow."
