(It's alright! I just knew you were on., so I bumped it.))
Nico didn't pale or anything; honestly, he could care less. He didn't know if that was bad, or good, or what.
"Yes, sir."He nodded politely, moving into the shadow."Is there anything else I should know?"He tilted his head, his brown eyes regarding the Boss coolly. Nico's brown eyes were sharply focused.
(thanks, just bump it every once in a while if i forget. ive got awful writers block in this RP so im sorry its going like absolutely nowhere) Maria returned to the room, giving Alex and Nico a cautious glance. Her nerves were frayed, her voice was squeaking with fright, her body was as taut as a bowstring. Discomfort emanated from her every pore. The boss seemed to be lost in thought, a blank expression on his face. With a sudden motion, he turned to Maria. "Food," he snapped. "Li.quor. Bring it out." Maria complied, returning with a bag of chips and three lable-less bottles that reeked of alco.hol, along with four cups. She set them on the table, allowing everyone to serve themselves.
(It's all good. We all get Writer's block, right? :D)
Nico arched a curious brow. Now they were....eating? Hm. It was odd, yes, but he served himself some bee.r and some salt and vinegar chips.
He ate normally, though his eyes were still needle points on the boss. What was he playing at, huh? Trying to get his guard down or what? It set Nico uneasily, and he wondered if it was time.
If it was time for Maria to break him.
(Bump! :) I don't know if you remeber the plot or not, but Maria is about to "break him" o.o)
(( ook! yeah my memory is completely shot, so sorry if any of this turns out a bit wonky. Also still got writer's block, so this might not get us anywhere until I have time to go back and read everything else. ))
Maria wrinkled her nose at Nico's choice of drink, instead pulling herself a long drink from her slim auburn bottle. She kept her eyes narrowed and on the Boss, looking like a cat hunting its prey.
"So, what brings you to our neck of the woods?" she asked politely. "I didn't expect you for a while." This was, of couse, an outright lie. Yet it was calculated to make it seem as if their lives had been casual and clam enough for a visit to not interrupt their work.
(That's okay; it's been a while :) And take your time. If you need any help with ideas, I wouldn't mind throwing some out there.)
Nico ate his chips casually. If he gave off any clues on how fast his heart was actually beating, the Boss would surely call him out on it. The thought was not inviting.
So, instead of offering a comment, he took a swig of his beèr, and watched them with curiosity. Nico had never seen Maria so...scared. Was that even the correct term? It had to be. His eyes found Alex, and faintly, Nico wondered if the boy was terrified as well.
(bump! :) )
