It had been some time since he'd last spoken with Kersen, and it was that alone that had led the young fae to the vampire's club. He'd been a shit friend, as dreadful at calling and texting people as ever, and an impulsive visit for a chat and drinks had seemed like a good way to make up for his absence.

The place was as popular as ever, and when Fin hadn't spotted Kersen right away, he'd found himself chatting with some other vampires instead. Now and then his gaze would flicker to the bar or the piano, keeping an eye out for his friend, an act that didn't go unnoticed by the men he was currently drinking with. ...Or, rather, drinking near. None of them appeared to have ordered anything yet.

"Looking for someone?" one of them asked. He was, Fin assumed, the leader of this little group of friends. He'd been the first to speak to him, the one to insist Fin come chat. He was tall and quite handsome, if not a bit older looking than most of the vampires Fin had met so far. He'd seemed friendly enough though, even now as a slight frown curled his lips.

"Oh, um- Well, I was hoping to run into Kersen, actually. Do you know him?" Fin asked.

"Of course, everyone does, don't they?" the vampire replied. "Why don't we see if he's out back? Might have stepped out to take a call..."

Fin hummed a bit and nodded, not noticing the slightly put out looks on the other vampire's faces as as he got to his feet. "Yeah, I could fancy a smoke anyway," he confessed as he followed the bloke outside and around towards the back. "So, you know Kersen well then?" he asked once they were alone.

"Sure," said the vampire. "Who doesn't. Kind of hard to miss, right, especially in heels." He smiled, toothy and a little disconcerting, suddenly making it apparent that he'd had quite a bit to drink.

He moved a little closer to Fin, and inhaled slightly. "You must know him real well."

"If I were your friend I'd be a little more proactive," the vampire said, and then moved closer to him, quick as lightning, pushing him back against the brick wall with a hand resting on the wall over his shoulder.

The vampire was stone still.

Then he looked deep into Fin's eyes and said, "Before you go, I think you'd love to let me have a bite."

Kersen hadn't been out in the bar because he'd been getting into drag. Nothing extravagant; a loose, kimono-style gown, black wig in a chignon, minimal makeup (for drag anyway). The crowd was somewhat thin tonight and he felt like singing for the first time in a while.

As he came out into the bar, one of his customers came up to him and said, "I just came in and pretty sure I saw some human getting glamoured in the alley."

Kersen cursed under his breath, then thanked him and swept to the back door.

He probably would have guessed it was a glamour anyway, since the person against the wall was nearly frozen in place as the vampire sank his fangs into his neck. It wasn't until Kersen got close that he realized it was Fin. And then he wasn't just annoyed, he was angry.

"Hey!" he snapped, and rushed forward, grabbing the vampire by the back of his neck and yanking him off of Fin and throwing him to the ground. "What the fuck do you think you're doing?"

The vampire leapt to his feet and bared his fangs at Kersen. "Just because you're impotent doesn't mean the rest of us can't have a snack."

Kersen glanced back to make sure that Fin was okay, which was just enough of a distraction for the vampire to shove him, hard to the ground. Kersen felt his gown rip, which really pissed him off.

He grabbed the vampire's leg to bring him off balance and have him toppling to the ground as well, and then he yanked off one of his high heels and held it to the man's chest, right where his heart would be.

"Mouth off to me one more time and I'll have to send a clean-up crew back here," he growled. He'd almost said something about a dust pan, but maybe this was one of those vampires who turned into a pile of gore. Ugh he hated that kind.

The vampire nodded, looking genuinely scared for a moment.

"And don't come back here," Kersen added. "In fact, I recommend that you are as far away as possible as soon as I let you go. Got it?"

Another nod.

And very slowly, Kersen stood, releasing him. The vampire hesitated, as if considering whether he should fight more, but in the end took off running away from the alley.

Kersen rushed to him. "Fin, are you okay? How much did he take?" He knelt down in front of him. Dress was probably ruined anyway. He could feel his wig askew, too, so he yanked it off.

There was a smear of blood on Fin's neck and it was a good thing that Kersen had such good self control. "I'm sorry I didn't get here sooner..."

"Of course," Kersen said hastily, and got to his feet, taking Fin's hand and helping him up as well, and then keeping a hold on his arm.

"And still, I'm sorry - most of my customers know how to behave themselves. Honestly I kind of wish this had happened inside, it does the rest some good to be reminded every once in a while that they shouldn't break the rules. Come on, let's go inside. You can rest downstairs."

"More than I'd like," said Kersen, "but not nearly as much as I had to a couple of years ago. There was a time when I was kind of... in charge. Of the vampires in London. Not everyone was fond of my authority." Once inside, he carefully led Fin down the stairs into the basement apartment. "That was a difficult time. I'm lucky I survived it."

"The experience was more difficult than anything else," Kersen said. "I feel as if I spent more time holding onto the control than I did exercising it. But the up side now is that in general I have more respect than I did before in the vampire community. My age makes me more powerful than most vampires in London, but I had to prove it. Here, have a seat on the bed." He led him. "Do you want a drink? Water, orange juice, or any variety of stronger things."

Kersen laid a hand lightly on Fin's shoulder and squeezed, before going into the kitchen and getting a bottle of water out of the refrigerator. Then he came back and handed it to Fin before sitting down beside him.

"I really am sorry I didn't stop him before he hurt you," he said softly.

"Well... please do come visit me more," Kersen said, and touched Fin's arm lightly, "but give me a heads up? You know you're particularly... tempting, to vampires."

"Sometimes I wish I could still look at the world without seeing all of the likely terrors," Kersen said, and squeezed his arm. "How are you feeling?"

"Oh honey you might not want it to come back right now," Kersen teased, though clear that he was glad to hear that. "I'm a hot mess. Nothing worse than part in and part out of drag."

"Despite having just been glamoured and attacked, you still look great," Kersen assured him. And though he knew he shouldn't be self conscious, he still yanked off the wig cap and ran his fingers through his hair, trying to make it slightly more presentable. He also smoothed a finger around his lips in case his lipstick had smeared.
