PostSubject: **My Shadow**   Tue May 01, 2018 5:03 pm



His name was Callan. Not that many cared. In his line of work the guy you met last week was as likely to meet you in the bar for drinks as they were to be dead. So, to say the least, Callan didnt have many friends.

He was a bodyguard, and one of the very best. Started out as a bouncer for a nearby nightclub and moved his way up the ranks to be the protection for the Don himself. Yes, that Don. The one that currently ran the city with an iron fisted grip. He refused to go anywhere without his “shadow” as he referred to Callan.

There wasnt much you could do once the Don called you to be his “shadow”. Unless the Don said to be someone elses shadow... which is why Callan found himself outside a nondescript building, alone, simply waiting.

When the Don tells you to go somewhere you do, and in this case there was added instruction. “You have been one of the best I’ve ever had my Shadow, but I need you to protect someone else. Someone very important to me. Should anything happen to them.. I will be most displeased”.

And so Callan found himself outside what appeared to be an office building on the upper east side.  All he knew was that he was to wait there until whoever he was supposed to start protecting came out the front door. So wait he did.

"I-I'm sorry miss, but you know you are not supposed to leave without an escort. As the daughter of the Don, I must insist you be rational in this situation...it's not safe!" A short, pudgy man paced back and forth across the room, forehead beaded with sweat as he wrung his hands together nervously. "I understand your frustrations, but I-"

"Enough!" Cynder spat. She tossed her hair over her shoulder and glared at him in contempt. "Your words will not sway me, you worthless coward. I will have no part in the mess of my father's failed business partnership." She moved toward the door but was hindered by the man, who was now sweating profusely, and her eyes widened with rage.

"Miss Cynder, please do reconsider. Your father will be most displeased, and I-"

His words were drowned by the sound of glass shattering as Cynder reached for a paper weight and chucked it across the room. She met his terrified eyes with disdain and now reached for the scissors.

"You will let me out of this room, Darren, or so help you God I will make a mess of you as well." Her words were sharp and quick, eyes flashing with fury. "Do NOT make me angry. You may be advisor to my father, but you hold no power over me. Step aside or you will regret it."

Darren cursed under his breath and did as he was told, though not before offering her one final pleading look. He knew better not to press the matter any further, but he prayed the Shadow had already arrived as planned...perhaps he could intercept her?

"Miss, what shall I tell your father?" he asked meekly, swallowing the lump in his throat. "You know he will be upset..."

At this Cynder laughed loudly, dropping the pair of scissors in her hand. She pushed past him with a careless grin.

"Tell him whatever you want."

Callan was leaning back against the wall, twirling a coin through his fingers when he heard what sounded like glass shatter. A slight frown crossed his features as he contemplated what to do. He didn’t sense any danger... but the Don had been very explicit. Nothing, not even a scratch, was to befall his new “Master” so to speak.

He signed, standing up and putting the coin back in his pocket. He was told to wait outside, but something told him that simply waiting was no longer an option.

With determined steps, he opened the door to the building and headed towards the gilded lobby. This was so obviously one of the Don’s mafia connections, that Callan understood now why he was told not to enter the building. The Don was very particular about keeping his business contacts “private” so to speak. They were, after all, the legitimate front that covers up the more illicit activities of the organization. There was a good reason that the Don kept Callan away from his more white collar associates. They knew full well the stories of “The Shadow” who always got what he came to collect.

As he approached the gold-plated elevators thinking to himself how gaudy it was for a corporate office, he heard the distinct sound of the elevator arriving at the bottom floor. He stood still, his hands casually in his pockets, as he waited for the doors to open. Either an executive would come through or whatever caused the shattering glass sound he heard earlier. Hopefully, it would be his new ward and they would be unharmed. He didn't want to think about what would happen otherwise.

As the elevator doors parted, Cynder sighed and stepped out--though her eyes quickly found those of a man she had never seen before. Her eyelashes fluttered over his lithe form, taking in the colorful tattoos and mangled scars which decorated his taught muscles. His hair was frosty and tousled, and his eyes were an uncanny blood red which caused her own golden orbs to narrow in suspicion. Who was this man?

"Excuse me, sir? Can I help you find something?" she questioned, tilting her head slightly in curiosity. Was this the man her father had sent as her bodyguard out of fear of her life? He had seen too much battle to belong anywhere within these gilded halls, otherwise...

"Or, perhaps," she grinned, "someone?" How curious she was now.

He watched her, her body going from angry defiance to curiosity once she realized he was there. Callan was not unaccustomed to people finding his appearance “odd”. Each arm was covered in an elaborate tattoo that extended onto his chest. One, a large winding black Chinese Dragon, symbolizing the power of the nothing. The ability to become invisible, and yet being one of the most deadliest of its kind.

The black snake that wound its way around his other arm, had an entirely different meaning, and one of such pain that Callan never spoke of it. Instead, it wound its inky way across his skin, marking him as someone of a different life, a different human almost.

Her attitude intrigued him, as most would see him and shrink back, not boldly come forward. It was... refreshing, and so he was inclined to answer her question. Perhaps she would be able to help him locate his ward? The Don had been very evasive when telling him about this new target, and refused to even state a gender. For all he knew, this could be her.

“I am” he said simply, before stating “I was told they would know a password.”

Cynder had been in a foul mood after her encounter with her father's adviser, however happening upon this stranger seemed to lighten her mood--almost playfully so. So he was her new bodyguard after all? Quite an impressive pick by her Father, they could agree on something at least. "Though that's about it..." she smirked inwardly, looking him up and down before pursing her lips in thought.

Now what to do with him? Should she wish him well and leave before he figured out who she was? Or should she stick around and play for a bit? She glanced around the lobby to see if anyone else had noticed his presence, though no one seemed to pay them any mind. The people found here were so engrossed in their work at all times, and for once she was grateful rather than annoyed.

"A password, huh?" she finally spoke up, eyeing him mischievously. She paused, as if mulling something over, and broke out in a grin before moving past him toward the door. She reached for the handle, pressing hard against the heavy wood to reveal a blinding light which poured in and momentarily obscured her form. "Well," she called at last, "tag, you're it."

And with that she laughed and disappeared through the door.

It took him a moment to put two and two together and realize what just happened. She must have been my new ward... Damn it. he thought to himself. Moving with purpose he made his way to the door and out to the street. Of course, she was already gone from sight.

“This... is going to be difficult.” He said softly aloud, thinking to himself on what to do next. Digging into this pocket, he pulled out his cellphone and opened up a GPS app, specifically downloaded for him. On there a small dot was moving a block over, not too quick. He smiled, realizing that she had given him the slip by running down the nearby alley to get to the next street.

He put the phone back in his pocket and casually began walking up the street he was on. If she maintained her current course he would run right into her once they both reached the corner. He was almost grinning as he thought of the look on her face.

He wasn’t an easy man to be rid of.

Cynder slunk through the crowded alley and toward the next block, scanning the area for any signs of the Shadow. Considering his famous nickname, she would have been surprised if he had lost her that easily. Surprised, but more so disappointed. It would be a shame if his reputation preceded him.

The streets were hot and hazy today, and she slowed her pace as she sought some shade further down the road. Just as she stepped out into the cross street, however, she turned the corner and she found herself face to face with blood-eyed boy. "And here we are again," she chuckled. "Well that was fun, albeit short-lived." Her eyes momentarily darted left and right, looking for any signs that they may have been followed, then she moved in closer to him.

"I knew it was you, Mr. Shadow..." she grinned playfully. "I suppose we'll be spending quite some time together from now on?"
