蛇 Vhalar 20th, 718 蛇
蛇 Mood: Delighted, Thrilled
蛇 Current Thought: Shhh, Let it Happen
蛇 Current Theme: Tsukimi
蛇 It's a shame when people can't keep their promises. They ask you for a favor, and you deliver, but when the shoe is on the other foot, its like pulling teeth or speaking an obscured language. Same goes for coin, you ask to borrow some coin, you are expected to pay it back.
Sadly in this unfortunate case, it wasn't as simple. Bryalla was a servant of the Lancastre house, and she was good at her job, like most who were so lucky to work for nobility. Unfortunately, however, the poor biqaj didn't know when to quit, going for stakes a lot higher than her pay grade.
She owed the owner of the casino outfit within the lair, a lovely den of despair, greed, & fortune, a lot of coin.....like a lot
of coin. Lex was not a man to be slighted, and as the vicemen of the casinos, he always got his due. Bryalla would be the perfect example of this, as the viper of the Lair was called in perform a grand act, a display if you would humor it.
The Lancastres where known to hold quaint little get-togethers, and getting in on his Lord name was an easy ticket to these sort of things. Impress the underling, and draw out the bigger fish. Dosan stood in the corner of the room, making polite conversation with a few of the other elevated heaps that happened to be there, sharing gossip and stories of the nobles they worked under.
When Bryalla's name was called, being ordered to go fetch some more wine from the cellar, he scanned the room, looking for the servant that would respond to the order. Spotting the servant, he found her face to be decent to look at, but poured over her features, to take them in and save them to memory. Oh yes, now that her face was in his memory banks, he wouldn't be able to forget her.
The party was in full swing, and the gracious hosts of the little event were lauding their expensive taste around, much as nobles do. The hosts were eating up the attention, admiration, and jealousy, the viper finding that it was a disgusting display. Dosan, however, was not so enthralled by such exotic treasures.
Dosan had been biding his time for the most opportune moment to kill the woman as instructed, though if he had too, he'd off the servant in front of the guests. In his eyes, he was doing her a favor. The woman had racked up 1,000 gnel in debt and was struggling to pay it off. Lex believed she was skimping on the payments and as such he wants her to serve as an example for those that thought they'd skimp the vicemen.
He was getting impatient and was looking for an opening, and after a rather long break, the viper finally caught his chance. The prey was heading out into the storage room, mostly looking for something that was running low and as an assassin in training, he tailed her. Looking about, he sipped his cocktail, looking to make sure no one was looking in his direction, and when the cost was clear he took it.
His footsteps were soft, as soft as he could make them anyway. Locking the door behind him, Dosan smiled, as he seized the woman's hair in his hand from behind while she was looking through the cupboards.
"You have been a rather naughty girl, cheating those you owe money to. Its rather rude to try and play someone, especially when they are better at the game than you"
he said in a low maniacal tone.
The woman begged for her life, saying the usual dribble, she won't ever do it again, she'd pay him back in full, yadayadayada. Dosan wasn't hearing any of it, it wasn't his job to hear any of it. Gripping the back of her with his left hand, and the bottom of her jaw with his right, he went to snap her neck. She struggled, one hell of a fight, but Dosan was determined to see this through.
"Shhhhhhh, come now, just let it happen."
he cued into her ear, her muffled screams increasing, only to be overshadowed by the audible snap. The next sound was that of a lifeless body thumping on the floor, along with a sigh of exhaustion as he put all the strength he could in that. Dosan couldn't help but chuckle at his handy work, and he slipped out of the storage room, just in the nick of time to rejoin the other guest, easily distracted by the new trinket and oddity the Lancastre's had brought out. 蛇
