Dein- no, Clovis, had been waiting for a chance like this for months. A chance at a job, a real job, in the business he had set out for himself. He had heard word of someone in need of a little 'investigating' of a certain other someone. It seemed straight-forward enough, get the client's person of interest, tag him or search his residence. Whatever it was this client needed, Clovis could get it. He had the magical prowess, the extra leverage his genetics allowed him, and he sure as hell had the confidence, if not cockiness. He had a good feeling though, he was as certain as the air he was breathing, that he could handle himself. He was ready, willing, and able.

The rumors, and word of mouth that had made its way to him, mentioned of a cafe in Bristol, where he could find the one he was looking for. As he made his way down the street, he rehearsed his own bio in his head, as a firmly planted smirk stretched across his face. 'I am Clovis Nacht. Age 22. Where and when I was born: none of your goddamn business.' He had this in the bag. And all this client had to know, was that he was born to do this, and the client would learn if not now, then by the end of the job. Clovis was damn sure of that.

He had absolutely no concerns about this situation. The meeting spot, supposedly where the client was meant to meet someone else to be hired- of which Clovis already took care of- was a small, public cafe, here in this city of Bristol. Muggle territory, but hey, he wouldn't want to attract wizard attention either, if he had to worry about that in the first place. He entered the shop, head held high, as he slipped his hand into his coat pocket, where he had safely deposited his wand, should he require it. He knew he wouldn't of course. No one would want to go to all this trouble just to have to obliviate all the muggles on the site. He certainly wouldn't want to deal with it.

He approached the counter, decorated in tattoos and dressed appropriately for the oddly cloudy weather today. As the lady asked for his order, he answered in a rusty voice, glancing at the first word he saw on the menu, "I'll take a latte."

*Bristol, an ancient city that has stood the test of time for a century now was going to be awakened by an unexpected guess. In a quiet neighborhood near the center of town out of thin air appeared a woman in one of the many forgotten phone booths that scattered the busiest parts of town. She wore a skin tight spaghetti strap laced dress that fit her perfectly in all the right places. It was midnight blue dress that accentuates her pale white skin and her long raven hair.
 
She looked ready to hit the night out on the town, not the middle of the day in the midst of a quant market place. Aries Lestrange allured a presence that could be hard to ignore. She preferred it that way, as she made her way into the heart of the city. It took her no time at all to make her way across the Bristol Bridge and passed the Avon River to one special café shop to meet her ‘special client’
 
The thought amused her, as she put her retro handbag underneath her left arm, having both free hands to open the French doors into the smell of roasted coffee beans brewing and dark wooded panels leading to a veranda.  She made eye contact with the Host giving him a slight wink and a coy smile before retreating outside to watch the flow of people straddling by on foot and in their vehicles.
 

She did not worry about not introducing herself to any strangers sitting alone. Her pet will come in time, she just had to be patient.*

The woman took long enough to get his damn drink ready, he spent his time waiting to observe those around the shop, taking only a mere, subtle look-around, before settling his gaze on the woman getting his latte. No one really stood out especially, none of them really had the 'here for business' look to them. No, these people were too ordinary to be his client. That would be a bloody stupid joke, and what's more, a waste of his valuable time.

"Here you go sir, have a wonderful day!" The woman beamed, only to receive the dirty look Clovis's face. He took the drink from her, and, as he turned to exit the cafe, stopped abruptly in his tracks.

"Hey, watch where you're going! Idiot." The man to his left said as he nearly plowed into him. Clovis didn't have the mind to listen, or even hear what he said. The karma tasted sour in his mouth, but he took a sip of his drink to rinse out his mouth.

Sitting at that table right outside the door, the one farthest from ordinary, was Aries- no, Headmistress Lestrange. He knew quite well the importance of that particular title. Suddenly Dein- Clovis, felt small, small and foolish. Just like that night during the tournament. He had to get himself together if he was to salvage the situation. Yes, he knew, the moment he saw her, that he wasn't here for the same reasons he thought. He hadn't 'uncovered' a new opportunity. But perhaps opportunity found him. It would be pointless trying to act anything out at this point. If this woman had found him- this particular woman- than she knew him. Clovis hadn't done anything to gain such recognition; Dein had.

He stepped out the door, inhaled the fresh air, and approached her table, "It's not every day a man like me sees such a lovely, stunning woman," He smirked, motioning to the empty chair, "Do you mind, at all?" The act wasn't for her, he knew that she knew that he knew they both knew. It was a simple matter, for any one like-minded enough to people like them. Complicated for any ordinary idiot on the street. And that's who the act was for: the muggles around them. Discretion was still a necessity.

*Aries only tipped her head up slightly to acknowledge the newcomer standing before her. Her attention which was once on the busy street and the river below now was squared center on a gangly man with tattoos lining up and down his arms. A smile could not be hidden on Aries’ face, as she pulled out the seat next to her, giving him no other choice than to make him sit right next to her.*
 
“Please do.”
 
*The strain on the boy’s face could not mask the charm of his words or the delicacy of his actions. He knew exactly how to play the situation, but did his actions play to his advantage? Only time would tell. The one thing Aries had plenty of was time. One thing Aries did not do was go straight to business, but let the silence shimmer. The situation was set, and she made it clear that she controlled all the pieces. All she did to enact the whims of her power was smile at him, letting the gentle breeze wisp her stray hair back and forth.*

Clovis sat where he was instructed. He knew his place, for now, and when it came to this woman, whatever she said goes. She had seemed amused by his presence, which was all the better. She still knew who he was, else he would have been turned away. She was far wiser than that.


While she took her time, enjoying the silence that she obviously controlled, Clovis took his time finishing his coffee. For a man who was complaining to himself about his time being wasted a moment ago, he had suddenly gained a large amount of patience. It wasn't his time he would be wasting now, after all. It was hers. At this moment, any other obligations he had could wait.

*The Hostess behind the counter came. Her perky demeanor serving Aries guess did not fade as she presented Aries with a tray of delights and a tall glass of one of their many delicious concoctions. Aries took the tall glass, but waved off the rest of the treats. Like a ray of sunshine, the Hostess beamed at both of them before retreating from their presence.

Now that they would not be bothered for a while longer and the street was thinning out because lunch hour was over, Aries felt comfortable to talk freely. She reached into her handbag that was nestle in her lap to retrieved not her vine wood, hair of a Pegasus wand, which was the first thing recognizable in the purse of hers, but a photo of a well-dressed businessman. He wore a suit and tie and had a bruiting look about him as he sat behind his desk. Aries took one last look of the photo before sliding it over to…*

“Clovis Nacht, age 22, birth place and birth date undecided, I would like to introduce your mark, Mr. White.”

*Aries read every movement in Dein’s posture. Even the slightest gesture, or flicker in the eyes, she read them all, but she did it in the most casual of ways. She leaned back in her chair, sipping her foaming Cappuccino still watching the street as pedestrians past casually shopping down market street.*

Clovis glanced up as the woman brought out treats and Aries's drink. The pastries were unnecessary, but the good Headmistress turned them away before he could say so. Clovis glanced over, as Lestrange slid over a photograph, and he sat up in his chair before taking the photo for a better look. He could assume the man spent a lot of time at that desk, working on his paperwork, considering the posture, the look on his face. Nothing seemed entirely out of the ordinary, however, but he set the photo down on the table and slid it back to her.



"Did he forget to pay his phone bill?" Clovis had little surprise over the knowledge of his identity, or in some degree, the lack of it. He took no offense- he'd decided upon it carefully. What better way to hide his identity than make it blatantly obvious? It would go unquestioned, in his line of work, and no one would think beyond it. Not most people, of course. He'd never planned to keep his identity from Headmistress Lestrange, for instance. The mask wasn't for her.


It was a great privilege to have a job from the great Headmistress, the price didn't even matter, nor would he dare ask. It was a great recognition, to have only started out, and have a chance to prove himself so soon. It was a test. And he wasn't going to fail.

“Funny.”

*Her words and actions stated otherwise. She did not look hardly amused by his jest. Instead of mulling over his insult any further, she focused on the matter at hand which was the anonymity of Mister White, who proud himself of being an enigma, a phantom little is known about but whispers and wild accusations. Even with Aries power and standing in many communities, she knew little about him.*

“All I want is a name, his real name and his location. That is all I want you to do.”

*Sounded simple enough, but if it was that easy Mr. White would be already in the Obituary, killed by the Death Mistress herself, or worse she would make him work for her. She was dead set on finding him, but knew that her moves were being blocked by his; only someone as insignificant as “Clovis” would be able to slip unnoticed through Mister White’s defenses, destroying any hope of salvaging his strategy.*

"Mr. White stole some antiquities of mine and I wish to procure them once more."

Clovis noted her lack of humor and decided to keep from such comments in the future. "I'll have it done, and thank you for this opportunity." He gave her a curt nod, "Do you have a preferred way of contact, once I've finished the task?" He looked to her, a bit restless as to when he could start this job. But he was restless, not reckless. He would treat the job with the utmost care. He wanted Lestrange's confidence, this was about his career, and the whole reason he'd chosen this path to begin with.


He was that much closer to figuring out who she really was.

If he failed this job, she would likely dispose of him, or worse, never call upon his services again. For him to make a name for himself, he had to start here, with his success. It would be a slow and steady path, but he would learn all the dark, dirty little secrets of those around him. The Headmistress of Durmstrang, she was at the top of the list.

Once they were done here, Clovis would start right away. He had the picture firmly set in his mind, now he would listen to the whispers in the crowd, jump on any mention of this 'Mr. White'. He would follow the trail until it lead to his target, and he had the unwavering patience that would get him as far as need be. He could become anyone, even his target's most trusted allies, in order to get to him. Clovis had no such luxury on past jobs. He had to be careful about using his specialties, if he wanted to keep them secret. But this time, his client already happened to know of his particular talents.

*Like a good pet, “Clovis” was eager to please his master. Aries could see it in his eyes; the eagerness to get started right away, the desire to succeed, all to prove himself to Aries.  It was quite endearing seeing him jump through hoops, if it weren’t for his interior motives, which made Aries like him even more. “Clovis” showed promised even someone so young, but he still was a child in many ways, still lacking in basic skills, which he will learn soon enough.*

“Contact me? No. No. No. No.”

*She gave him a pouty look, as if he displeased her with his antics.*

“I will know when and if you have succeeded. I-will-come-to-find-you.”

*Her fingers which caressed Clovis hand moved up slowly up the man’s arm, tracing the outline of several tattoos as she went along. Her eyes followed her fingers as it made its way to his shoulder blade. Which once was a small spark of curiosity, became a full on forest fire of burning desire to unraveled the mystery of Dein Edrins, her new play thing.*

He watched as her hand trailed up his arm, and to his shoulder blade. It bothered him little, in fact, as long as she started trusting him more often with work, he had no problem at all. She did bring something to his attention, however. How would she know that he would have completed his task? What would have been one less step off his list, only brought him more concern. If it was at all possible, that she could be watching him, it would make everything twice as complicated.

But he gave a curt nod, not turning his gaze from her for even a second, as he replied, "As you wish. Anything else?"

*His supple skin was as smooth as glass. Her hands glided over the bare skin like tropical birds skimming over the ocean surface. She could not resist the pull of his exotic gifts. How easily the chameleon could change his forms in a blink of an eye. Such power he held that came so naturally to him, which people such as herself would kill to have. That is why her pet was useful. That is why Aries took such an interest in him. “Clovis” is the next generation of Dark Wizards, which had an allure that only Aries could ascertain, but “Clovis” was still young and naïve.  He still had many things to learn before he could become great like the headmistress herself.*

“Yes, love, one other thing.”

*Her hand found its way to his far cheek. She was now ever so close to him as she lean in. Her lips brush up against his ear as she spoke ever so sweatly.*

“You may change your face from night into day, Dein Edrins, but leaving no paper trail will be the death of you.”

Clovis didn't think the weather had anything to do with her icy fingertips, as they snaked up to his cheek. But her voice was like a heavy hammer to his skull. The blood pounded in his head as he examined her words carefully. Had he left out even a tiny detail? One, single detail that could unwravel him?

He was highly attentive with the Headmistress so close, he didn't let his muscles tense, nor did he let his face betray him. He couldn't hide anything from the powerful Aries, but it was better to remain presentable. Letting his emotions control him would be the equivalent of him digging himself a hole. He knew better to question her meaning; if she had wanted her advice to be clear, she would have made it so. Instead he formed a decent look on his face, before her told her, "Thank you, Headmistress." His voice was low, his tone serious.

*She had suede over many of men, and “Clovis” was no different. Lust and sexual pleasures was only one of many tools she had in her arsenal. Every small detailed that surrounds her she had a degree of control over. The ones who fought the most, struggling and denying the power she held over them the less control they had of their own lives. "Clovis" wasn’t one of them. He used her as much as she him. That had suede over each other destiny, but who shall plummet first? Aries, who sits on Mount Olympus as a Goddess of her domain or "Clovis", the shadow walker with many faces that is trying to rise out of the pit of Tartarus to make a name for himself?

She released him from her clutch, settling her hands in her lap instead. The conversation was just about done, but she wouldn’t allow him to aimlessly blunder off. She wouldn’t waste her time or his. She grabbed her Technicolor purse that sat on the table untouched and withdrew a stack paper, and a note. She slide it over to “Clovis” looking over her shoulder while doing it to see if anyone else was paying attention. No one was.*

“This is ten percent of your payment in Muggle money. You will need it where you are going.”

*one thing to know about Aries is her smile which could charm even the deadliest of beast, could transform into something vile, pure evil. Aries had no doubt that she could have gotten the answer out of the two thugs, if she wanted too, but where was the fun in that? "Clovis"was so eager, his tongue out and his tail wagging of excitement to prove himself. She would let him be and all the while keeping her hands clean. It was a win-win situation, and if "Clovis"died in the process, he wasn’t the man she thought he was.*

“Goodbye, Sugar,” she said ever so sweetly.

Clovis watched her, as she pulled away and handed him a stack of paper money- strange, muggles were- and he took the stack and slipped it into his coat. He provided a smile to his employer as he rose from his chair, and after a curt nod, he said, "Goodbye, Headmistress," before turning and walking away.

It was no secret why she was so taken with him. He knew it was all about the power in the Headmistress's eyes, and this job was a test Clovis wouldn't fail. And he may have been working for her now, but he had bigger plans. One day, Aries may seem him less as a 'pet', and more as a rival.
