It's around mid-morning at Milliways when Splinter climbs the stairs and wends his way to Michaelangelo's suite. A faint smile curls along his muzzle as he raps solidly on the door with the end of his staff. The announcement should be loud enough to wake even the heaviest sleeping ninja, by his calculations.

Shame all the ninjas around here are in the shower, singing loud enough to almost drown out the knock.

Almost, but not quite. Mel's training again, doing a handstand on the edge of the coffee table.

Either she's getting the hang of her body again, or her strength is improving. She's been able to hold this for nearly a minute, now.

"It's open!"

Not an invite. Just a statement of fact.

Mel turns her head to see who it is, and starts when she sees a giant rat. Not because it's a giant rat of course, but because that can only be one person.

Her hands slip and she stumbles, fmaubling comiccally in midair before falling hard on the coffee table.

"Hi!" She says from that position.

slayer_fray: (surprised)
From: [personal profile] slayer_fray
"Uh, hi!"

Scrambling to her feet, Mel glances towards Mike's room, where the singing and spary carry on regardless.

Bastard.

She extends a hand, throwing up all mental sheilds quickly just in case. Not that she's broadcasting anything with her head as it is, but she still feels it's rude to pry.

"Splinter. Uh... Master Splinter. Can I get you a drink?"

Don't ask for tea. She can't make tea.

She knew he'd take tea. Shit.

OK, she can fake tea, right? She ponders this on her way to the kitchen. Putting the kettle on is easy enough. We'll start with that.

"So, um, how are you?" she asks, almost casually while she busies herself. "Mikey's in the shower."

Date: 2006-05-04 09:47 am (UTC)
slayer_fray: (thoughtful)
From: [personal profile] slayer_fray
"It has, actually," Mel says, rummaging through a drawer full of teas. "That just means he knows there's someone out here, and he's putting on a show of bad singing."

OK, too much choice, tea-wise. "You have a preference to the type of tea?" she asks, scratching her head.

It has to be said that this is Mel's first ever experience with meeting the parents. All her old, for want of a more appropriate term, 'lovers' had been too old, too orphaned or too temporary for this kind of experience.

She's going to kill Mikey. At least she was there when Erin turned up.

Darjeeling tea is recovered. A mug retrieved, and one is put in the other.

Hopefully he's not expecting it to be infused properly or anything.

"OK," she says. "Well, I'm from Versi - that's a warren in the city - and the last time I made it home it was 2293. I'm a thief, a Vampire Slayer and I work Security here."

She faces him now with a slight smile. "And I like Tequila."

slayer_fray: (smug)
From: [personal profile] slayer_fray
"Yep," Mel says, brightly.

Her arms against the side of the counter, she attempts to pull herself up to sit on it, and manages on the second attempt, kicking feet lightly against the cupboard door.

"Pretty damn good one, as well."

Date: 2006-05-04 05:18 pm (UTC)
slayer_fray: (yeah right)
From: [personal profile] slayer_fray
"Uh, yeah, guess so," she allows, one eyebrow raised.

Date: 2006-05-04 05:29 pm (UTC)
slayer_fray: (huh?)
From: [personal profile] slayer_fray
"Cause it's fun," Mel answers easily. The kettle comes to the boils and clicks off, and she turns patrly to it, pouring the water over the tea without so much as letting it settle.

"'Cause I'm good at it, and 'cause it's a whole lot more appealing than whoring."

Date: 2006-05-04 05:47 pm (UTC)
slayer_fray: (yeah right)
From: [personal profile] slayer_fray
"Uh," Mel glances sideways at him as she jumps off the counter to pass him the tea.

There is? No one told her that.

"Yeah, sure, whatever."

Date: 2006-05-04 08:08 pm (UTC)
slayer_fray: (huh?)
From: [personal profile] slayer_fray
It's convenient Mel's mental barriers are up, really. Splinter doesn't need those images.

But her genial manner does fade.

"Much as anyone can work with him."

Date: 2006-05-04 08:16 pm (UTC)
slayer_fray: (huh?)
From: [personal profile] slayer_fray
"No," Mel says shortly. "They haven't."

Date: 2006-05-04 08:21 pm (UTC)
slayer_fray: (unamused)
From: [personal profile] slayer_fray
Mel holds his gaze, steady. She knows what he can do, but she's also just about capable of putting everything she has into mental shields to keep him out.

"That's really between them," she says.
