Time to Dance (Romania/Public)

Post  Blank on Sat Feb 19, 2011 3:31 pm

Nicoleta sat perched on a suitcase, one she usually used for shows, and waved a makeshift fan in her face to keep cool. She was angry, maybe not as much as the stagehands trying to fit the wheel back on one of the caravans, but certainly irritated.

They were behind schedule.

Usually the Ragtags would arrive to a city first, conjuring an audience before Carnivale Mistique swooped in and took the attention of the masses. However, with the sudden chain of inconveniences it looked as if the smaller carnival needn't even bother coming. What crowd would welcome them when the grand Mistique was there?

Growing impatient, the woman brushed dust from her pale pink dress and strolled towards the workers.

"How much longer? You see, time is of the ess-"

One of the men glanced up, sweat dripping from his brow. With the most obnoxious noise one could make, he snorted and spat near her shoes. Nicoleta nearly jumped a mile back.

"Look, lady, it'll be done when it's done. Now go go make yourself useful--"

She wrinkled her nose and stormed off without letting him finish.

"For your sake it better be fixed soon..."


(I wasn't all too sure where to post this but here it is, a little something for the subplot. xD
RAGTAGS HOOOOOO-)

(Took off my thread for easier work. xD)
From afar stood a taut man watching lazily at the scene, finding everything the woman did quite interesting.

'What a firecracker,' Thaddeus thought aloud as he strolled the woman's way, news paper in hand until he was a certain distance from her. He sat down on the sturdy soil, flapping our the rather dusty material and began skimming the lastest front new.

"A rather annoying day we're having ma`am, isn't it?"

The young American wasn't expecting a reply from the fiery lady, but still awaited an answer as his eyes landed on another recent killing in New York. He sighed, running a hand through his short locks while continuing reading the rather shocking announcement. Now the man prayed she'd reply, otherwise he may lose his anger at the only thing keeping him updated on the outside world for awhile.

( :CCC )

Nicoleta whipped around, a bit surprised. Her gaze cast down on the odd man reading the paper and her look of shock soon turned to puzzlement.

Was he one of the Ragtags? If so, she couldn't for the life of her remember who he was..and she tried making an effort to keep their faces familiar. She suddenly felt embarrassed. How rude of her to forget someone!

"Pardon but who are you?"

(/petpet u v u)

He looked back towards the woman, eyebrow arched with a small smile sweeping his face. He lowered the paper to the ground and with great poise he rose, giving a brief bow and twirl of his hand.

"Mr. Johnson ma`am, Thaddeus Johnson and as much I'd shake hands with you I don't think a man like myself should be given the privelge to hold one of great beauty like yours."

He didn't mean to sound like a suck up honestly, but with a title of a male prostitute around the Ragtag he'd figure she'd get the message once hearing his name. Wrapping his hands around his suspenders and leaning back abit he began to wonder who this woman might be as well.

"As for you ma`am?"

Thaddeus Johnson..the Romanian's head tilted slightly. The name seemed to ring a bell but...Was he one of the newer performers? A tag along?

"-I'd shake hands with you I don't think a man like myself should be given the privelge to hold one of great beauty like yours."

Wasn't he the charmer?

She rolled her eyes and gave a thin smile. "Miss Ionescu." (or Delchevic. I have no idea if they are married in this. :I xDD) Nicoleta gripped his hand and gave it a firm shake, despite the 'flattery'.

With introductions out of the way, she glanced back at the stagehands, lips forming into a small, tight line.

(I-I DON'T KNOW.)

Well now, Thaddeus had not expected this! The moment the woman laid her dainty hand upon his rugged one, he snatched it away, a displeased look masking over his shocked expression. It wasn't easy to tell people to lay fingers on the merchandise if they haven't paid, that and the fact that he had yet to bathe from his previous excapade his well paid client made things alot more awkward. Thaddeus wished to have brought his cap along with him to hide his expression.

"Um...what a charming name, suits you well."

He gave a forced smile, this time hands fumbling inside his pockets as he return to his sitting position, eyes staring straight ahead as the stage crew continued to lift items into the large wagon.

"Occupation? Perhaps a trapeze artist?"

He hoped the conversation would ease the awkward tension, other wise he'd leave and waste a moment to get and know the people of Ragstags.

As soon as she shook his hand, he went from confident to awkward. Her gaze snapped back on him. What had she done wrong?

"A contortionist, actually." Nicoleta offered a broad smile. She enjoyed when people took interest in what she did, even if she hated the job. At least somebody was noticing her for something.

"And you? Stagehand?"

She paused, folding her arms over her chest.

"...My apologies for not having the faintest of who you are." She laughed gently.

It took the prostitute his whole will from retorting a sexual reference as he chuckled even more nervously at her smile. However, a job as a contortionist was indeed a rather amazing feat for any person and thinking more thoughtfully Thaddeus gave a playful clap.

"Ah! Exciting and unique, gals like you must be a heartbreak`a to any men out `ta woo `ya."

"And you? Stagehand?"

"Nah, nothing of the sort."

"...My apologies for not having the faintest of who you are."

Laughing along with her the man wiped a tear from his eye and looked back towards the woman.

"No no, no need to apologize ma`am, people like me shouldn't be reconized anyway. You can say I'm the "escort" of the ladies and gen`aman who visit the place, if thats a more politically correct term. In short, a prostitute."

It was usually here most people had stop talking to him, or had they probbed any further for answers it was his reasons why he choose to live this way that had them running. But none of that really mattered to him, what he chose to do was his own business and ain't nobody here to stop him.

"A prostitute." She echoed softly. A sadness filled her, clearly shown on her face. She was reminded of Crina. Her poor Crina..

Suddenly, Nicoleta's face brightened up again. "My daughter, she is a...a 'escort' too," She acted like some mother gushing over their child's good grades. "Do you-" She stopped herself before going on. He couldn't have. He was a ragtag; She was dragged into Mistique. (Which she was actually thankful for, she heard they received good treatment there...)

"Ah..Nevermind." She gave a halfhearted smile. "Anyways..."

"If you have any troubles with any clients come to me, hm?" She was sure he was capable of taking care of himself but who knew? Besides, she felt he would feel more comfortable with some sort of support.

Thaddeus had no idea how to be grateful to the woman, merely grumbling a small thanks and a nod to her kind offer. It was truely a blessing in disguise, even with one so fair as she was. The America coughed, looking about the hustle curiously then back at Miss Ionescu with a wry smile.

"So Miss Ionescu...you said earlier your daughter, my appologizes, is an 'escort' herself in Mystique. Why she so far from a worried mother like yourself?"

It was indeed strange to hear her speak it like second nature, it almost unnerved him. Luckily the thick exterior his mentor showed him made his question feel casual rather than a nervous train wreck awaiting.
