(OOC -- Sorry to have been so slow -- a combination of factors, including an honest-to-goodness case of RP-block -- I'm trying to speed it up)

Jake rolls his eyes briefly at Annie's comment, then gives her a condescending wink and a smirk.

"Mr. J has been dead longer than I've been in the city. Seems to me that you should've been more up-to-date than me, hm? It's looking more and more like we need to talk. I mean, I don't need to remind you [looking at Annie] about how things are done. How long have you been in town, A-Bomb? We really need to chat."

"I'm afraid I don't spend much time at court," Annie says, "it's normally a dreadful bore. If there's still even a court now, that is, I could be behind the times. But I do know enough not to be so credulous as to believe someone's claim that they're backed by the people in charge based on a mouthful of half-answers."

"A-bomb..." Bobby says. "You two know each other?"

"Hmm, didn't I say? I made him one of us," Annie says, smiling a too-sweet smile. "A smoother talker, or bigger conniver, you won't find."

Bobby stares at you for a bit, and you can almost imagine the lovely shade of green he must be turning into on the inside.

"She's right, dude, bullshit walks. How do we even know that Mr. J. is really gone?"

"By all means, don't believe me. Don't take me up on my oh-so-unreasonable offer to chat in a neutral, public place of your choosing. Persist in flouting Camarilla law. It really is no skin off my nose. What possible proof could I bring you? A small handful of ash? Whatever, dude. I've discharged my obligation here. No doubt someone else will come by to sort out exactly what the nature of your relationship with Mr. J was and what you did for him, as well as the nature of your involvement with one of the more rebellious members of the family. Do enjoy that."

Jake turns to go.

The door slams behind you once you take a couple steps away.

OOC: #@$%ing hell... So much for my bluff...

Jake immediately approaches Dee Dee and Sarah and fills them in.

"What now? This is a lot more complicated now. Should we whistle up some enforcers and make this personal?"

"We are the enforcers," Dee Dee says with a smile. She turns serious after a look towards the house.

"So your sire is in town, is she? We've still got a few options. We can do a little asking around, see what the other Kindred in the city know about them. We could just Summon them to the mansion, I'm sure Rebekka will be interested. You'd be the best option for your sire, if you've got the know-how. Or we could just haul them in directly. How rough does Annie like to play?" The Sheriff looks at the house again.

"From what you've described, I wonder if Mr. Johnson Embraced this Bobby kid on the down-low. It's pretty damn peculiar that Annie would end up with him. Did she ever mention to you who her sire was?"

OOC: This would be a place where I need some GM input -- Annie is a bit of a rebel, but I'm not sure how to answer the question. Also, I've got Summoning -- would I be strong enough to summon my own sire?

"It certainly does look like Mr. J had a little side-project going here. And no, Annie never talked about her own Embrace. She mostly kept me in the dark about Kindred society in general and her history in specific."

Let's just roll with nothing on Annie's history, to Jake's knowledge. Summoning Annie will work fine for Jake.

"You're 10th generation, aren't you?" Sarah asks out of the blue. "That's two steps away from Mr. Johnson."

"I couldn't tell you, but I'd be ready for a fight, just in case. She's a rogue. As for Summoning, I can do that, if that's the way you want to do this."

Jake blinks.

"Uhm, I'd never thought of that particular possible permutation before."

"Ah, there's the Tremere precocity I've heard so much about," the Sheriff says. "Although that would help explain how they ended up together, I have to admit. Maybe we should head back, ask our questions, and then Summon the pair to the mansion before sunrise. The timing might make them both sweat a little if we sit on it a bit.

"Did Annie ever give you or use any aliases? Or a full name? Might help cut down on confusion when we poll the New Orleans long-timers."

((Make up whatever you see fit here, or nothing, if that suits you.))
