New York, 11:35 p.m.

Cole is leaning against the side of an old tractor trailer cab near the docks. Warehouses span out in all directions, and the sound of a tugboat in the harbor rings clearly through the light fog coming off the water.

He flips open his cellphone and dials Mac.

The sound of her cell phone ringing almost makes her jump, funny how the sound of one simple thing can do that when you are lost in your thoughts.

She reached down onto the table and picked it up before flipping it open and pressing it to her ear, 'Hello?'

ooc:Fingers crossed this goes through, Mac doesn't play here any more. I only saw it cause one of my other muses has the comm friended.
Cole Cashthe_grifter_ on June 24th, 2006 01:11 am (UTC)
((came through loud and clear.))

"The Matrix has you, Mac."

Cole laughs, glancing across the parking lot.
Macaria - Only daughter of Hercules: beautiful:cila81lost_spiritus on June 24th, 2006 01:14 am (UTC)
A frown fell on her face, 'The what does what to me?' She pushed her hair back from her face, 'So, whats a guy like you doing calling a girl like me?' Smooth, very smooth.
Cole Cash: suavethe_grifter_ on June 24th, 2006 01:16 am (UTC)
"Well, I wanted to see if you had a date to the prom yet."

He laughs again. It was good to hear her voice.

"What are you doing tonight?"
Macaria - Only daughter of Hercules: painting: enrianalost_spiritus on June 24th, 2006 01:21 am (UTC)
'I never made it to the prom so I never had a date.' She couldn't help but laugh herself.

'What am I doing?' she looked back over her apartment at the sketch pad and pencils she had out, 'Oh nothing really. Are you doing anything?'
Cole Cash: battledamagethe_grifter_ on June 24th, 2006 02:01 am (UTC)
"You if I'm lucky, I guess. Can you meet me somewhere?"

He shifts the phone to his other ear.
Macaria - Only daughter of Hercules: lol: thegeeknpinklost_spiritus on June 24th, 2006 02:03 am (UTC)
She laughed nervously, 'I um, yeah...sure.' She rubbed her hand on her pants, 'where do you want to meet?'
Cole Cash: hehthe_grifter_ on June 24th, 2006 04:09 am (UTC)
"Pier 9. West side. I'll be waiting for ya. And I don't blame you if you stand me up."

He smiles, kicking a piece of gravel across the parking lot with the toe of his boot.

Cole Cash: smokingthe_grifter_ on June 26th, 2006 12:33 pm (UTC)
"Sure. Hope ya feel limber, I'm up for some dancing."

Cole winks at her, takes a puff from his cigarette, then blows a smoke ring out into the air. Quickly, he blows a second smoke ring which passes through the first. Bulls-eye.

"Feel free to mingle about if ya want. Lots of cool people here. I'll be around."
Macaria - Only daughter of Hercules: jaded:fierytempestlost_spiritus on June 26th, 2006 12:54 pm (UTC)
'Dancing sounds good.'

But her smile faded a little. He'd be around? 'Sure, what ever.' Why ask her out, ask her here if he was just going to be around?

'Have fun dancing.' She began to move away from him, not too sure her coming out had been a good idea now.
Cole Cash: wtf!the_grifter_ on June 26th, 2006 12:57 pm (UTC)
Cole watches the look on her face change. He smiles and shakes his head.

"Hey, Mac!" He calls out over the music, then hurries to catch up. He puts a hand on her shoulder to get her attention.

"I didn't mean it like that. I just meant you don't have to feel obligated to hang next to my scruffy ass all night."

He smiles.

"But I'd like for you to. Let's dance, huh?"
Macaria - Only daughter of Hercules: proud:cila81lost_spiritus on June 26th, 2006 01:02 pm (UTC)
'I don't want you to think you have to stay at my side either.' She sighed softly, 'Look, I'm not good on the whole friend front. It isn't exactly easy to explain to people why I end up hurt, but you do and I came out because I wanted...to spend time with you ok. I don't have to pretend with you.'

She blushed a little seeming like the sweet little woman she could be sometimes.

'Dancing sounds great.'
Cole Cash: suavethe_grifter_ on June 27th, 2006 03:45 am (UTC)
Cole nods and smiles at her, squeezing her shoulder.

"Sorry. I'm just used to being around a wild crowd. Not people that actually care about me. Let's dance. Lead the way."
Macaria - Only daughter of Hercules: bright eyes:roxi89lost_spiritus on June 27th, 2006 10:42 am (UTC)
She looked at him for a moment before glancing away. It was the caring part that got her.

Taking a breath she looked out towards the dancefloor and headed over to it.
Cole Cash: dumbasscollarthe_grifter_ on June 27th, 2006 07:31 pm (UTC)
And so he follows her out. The dance floor is absolutely packed with the young, wild crowd. The dance floor is dark, lit only by the occasional flashing of lights, and a live DJ is spinning house music from an elevated booth. Cole slides his hands onto her hips from behind and begins to lead her into a fast dance, hoping she'll follow his lead.
Macaria - Only daughter of Hercules: know why you love me:fierytempestlost_spiritus on June 27th, 2006 07:39 pm (UTC)
Her hand went over his and she pressed back against him, following his lead for a fast dance. She's never danced like this all tooled up, so she was doing her best to be all sexy while having fun.

After a moment she turned and wrapped an arm around his neck, dancing up against him, her body rocking to his.

Cole Cash: bullseyethe_grifter_ on July 5th, 2006 05:33 pm (UTC)
"Hey, I had to let you keep up."

He tosses her a wink, then hands her her drink once they arrive.

"Shall we, then?" he asks, gesturing to the pool tables.

Inside, he laughs to himself. Aside from cards, pool was his game of choice. No way he was gonna let her beat him.
Macaria - Only daughter of Hercules: proud:cila81lost_spiritus on July 5th, 2006 05:37 pm (UTC)
'Let me? I saw that look on your face when I beat you.' Her eyes met with his, 'So I chose the game, you pick the bet. What happens when you lose?'
Cole Cash: Cheers Fuck Facethe_grifter_ on July 5th, 2006 05:46 pm (UTC)
He looks into her eyes, and has a sip of his vodka.

"You mean if I lose, not when. And that's a big if."

He leans over and picks up a pool cue near the table, and begins chalking the tip.

"Tell ya what, if I lose, I'll be your slave for the rest of the night. I'll do anything you say. Well, within reason."
Macaria - Only daughter of Hercules: goddess:skywalker_iconslost_spiritus on July 5th, 2006 05:48 pm (UTC)
'And if I lose I will do the same.' She downed the drink she had been bought and moved towards the table, picking up a cue as she went.

Maybe it would be worth losing, just to see what he would think of to make her do. She walked past him, her hand brushing between his legs, 'Now remember to play fair.'
Cole Cashthe_grifter_ on July 5th, 2006 06:01 pm (UTC)
Cole sucks in a breath o air as her hand brushes him.

"Play fair? In your dreams, honey."

He arranges the pool balls and moves them into position, then stands back and drinks some more of his vodaka.

"Tell you what, you go ahead and break. Cutthroat 9-Ball okay, or would you rather just play straight 8-Ball?"
Macaria - Only daughter of Hercules: beauty:cila81lost_spiritus on July 5th, 2006 06:07 pm (UTC)
'Then we wont play fair,' she smirked some, this really would be fun.

She nodded slowly and chalked her cue before moving around to the position where she needed to break. 'Oh, we could go with the nine ball. I think I can handle that.' With a chuckle she bent over the table and readied to take her shot, 'If you can handle it.'


ooc: mun as no idea what they are, pool is played different over here but I think I can get the idea from rules on line.
Cole Cash: smokingthe_grifter_ on July 11th, 2006 11:32 am (UTC)
Cole lights up a cigarette, leaning back to watch her take her shot.

"I never play fair, honey. I'm a grifter. Hence the name."

He smiles, checking out how the balls have been arranged. Maybe he should let her win after all? Naw, that wouldn't be fun.

He takes a glance around the bar, then back to her.

((Don't sweat knowing the rules. I love playing pool, but I know everyone's not big on it. So just handwave what you don't know.))
Macaria - Only daughter of Hercules: bright eyes:roxi89lost_spiritus on July 11th, 2006 11:47 am (UTC)
Nothing goes down and she stands up to look at him and srugs, 'Must be a little rusty.' He hand been a while, she didn't get out much any more.

She motions towards the table and nodded, 'After you.'


ooc: No I do play, but we play red/yellows here.
Cole Cash: battledamagethe_grifter_ on July 21st, 2006 01:08 am (UTC)
Cole winks at Mac, then struts over to the table. He leans over to eye-level with the table, figuring out his shot, then puts the pool cue into position.

"A little rusty, huh? Let's hope you're not rusty at something else, huh?"

He chuckles, then takes his shot.

*KRACK*

The billiard balls clatter together, and the 1 ball rolls neatly into the corner pocket near Mac.

"This may have been an unwise choice for a bet, babe."
