Bobby's spectacles have slipped down his nose a bit, and he peers at you a bit curiously over his glasses.

"Well, he's a Lick, whoever he is," he says to Annie. "Who sent you? Mr. J. said I'd be left alone."

"The name is Jake. Mr. J is dead. I'm here to wrap up his affairs."

"Dead?" asks Bobby. He's definitely surprised. "Did I get an inheritance?"

Annie seems to be following the conversation with interest, but doesn't add anything for the moment.

"Well, we're still sorting all of it out. This all happened rather suddenly and we're trying to figure things out ourselves. May I come in? We have a lot of things to talk about."

"You still haven't told me who sent you," Bobby replies. "Mr. J. never mentioned anyone like you to me."

"Who is in charge of New Orleans now?" Annie asks.

"I get that. You'll perhaps appreciate that he never mentioned you either. So perhaps we can have a little chat and have both of our questions answered."

Jake looks back at Bobby.

"If you're uncomfortable with meeting in your home, we can hit a cafe or diner or something. A nice, neutral, public location. But I have questions that need to be answered. It sounds like you have questions too. So why don't we see if we can't help each other out a little?"

"The person in charge sent you," Annie echoes to you. "Lovely. That person wouldn't happen to be a member of the Sabbat, would he?"

Bobby looks at Annie for a second and then gives you a suspicious little squint.

"When was the last time you spoke to Mr. J?"

((It occurs to Jake that if the others don't know who's in charge in New Orleans, chances are pretty good that they haven't presented themselves to the new Prince. And despite his relative newness to the Camarilla side of things, he has some recollection that it's basically the Sheriff's job to ensure that all Kindred in the city adhere to the Traditions. Annie surely realizes this, and is basically just fucking with you, but it's unclear whether Bobby understands the issue. It'll be your call as to whether Jake goes back with Dee Dee, assuming you can talk Annie and Bobby into complying.))

(OOC -- I've been presuming that this kid with Annie is a mortal. Is this a mistake on my part?)

He used the term "Lick," which is synonymous with Kindred, but tends to be used mostly by more recently Embraced vampires. So, he's probably a vampire, based on Jake's present in-character knowledge. It would take Aura Perception to know for sure, or you can just stay pretty sure based on the kid's choice of words.
