*Spike stood staring up at the castle. So this was the place that had been calling out to him. It didn't look so great, just another castle, he'd seen plenty of them in his time and he wasn't too fond of them, always freezing cold and in the middle of nowhere. But there was something different about this one, he could feel it. It eminated power, more power than he'd even felt the Hellmouth give off. And Spike was always one to go where the power was. He wondered if any of vampires had come, they must have felt it too. Well he wasn't going to waste anymore time standing around here, may as well go inside the dump.*

*He's a little confused at the way she looks at him, it really is like she knows he's a vampire, but if she did shouldn't she be running the other direction? He smiles at her, he can be charming when he wants to be and if he's not going to kill her she may as well be at ease* I always make sense, luv.

*She smiles back* That's a rather unique trait. Most of the people I know have at least a few moments of making utterly no sense at all.

*He laughs* I'm a unique guy, pet.

*He used the term 'pet' earlier in their conversation, and, at the time, she ignored it because she was too preoccupied with the possibility of him being a vampire. This time though, it makes her flinch slightly.* Could you please not call me that?

*He laughs again, he's not used to dealing with Victorian formality, he hasn't had to since, well Victoriam times* What would you prefer, luv?
Mina Harkerminaharker10_2 on May 29th, 2007 05:26 am (UTC)
*This, actually, is not Victorian formality but a specific dislike for that term. She smiles, though* Perhaps it would be easier to simply call me by my name? It is Mina Harker, if you forgot.

Mina Harker it is then. *He smirks, for him this is good manners, it amuses him*
Mina Harkerminaharker10_2 on May 29th, 2007 05:47 am (UTC)
Thank you. *The smirk is a bit annoying, but not overly so* Would you like to tell me anything about yourself...Spike?
spikexthebigbad on May 29th, 2007 05:53 am (UTC)
*No, he really wouldn't* Well, pet, Mina, I'm a capricorn, I like poetry, long walks on the beach and puppies. *He says it in a mock tone of someone on a reality tv dating show* And you?

*Isn't sure how much of this is sarcastic, so just assumes that it's all genuine until she has information to the contrary* I live in London, I'm a teacher, I'm married to a solicitor named Jonathan Harker. I prefer prose to poetry, walks in the woods to walks on the beach, and don't very much like many sorts of animals. *A smile that might indicate that she's joking a bit is on her face*
spikexthebigbad on May 29th, 2007 06:20 am (UTC)
*He's a little surprised that she doesn't seem to pick up on the sarcasm, does he seem like the kind of guy who bloody well likes puppies?* London? That's a long ways away *pause* I think. It's been a while since I was there. *He looks reminiscent, he's had some good times in London*
Mina Harkerminaharker10_2 on May 29th, 2007 06:23 am (UTC)
*Well, who knows? Anyone could like puppies secretly. Her voice is slightly gentle* Did you like it there?

[Typist: LOL at secret puppy lovers]
*He smiles, remembering the time he spent there with Dru, Darla and Angelus, he doesn't often think about his life as a human but he remembers that too* Wasn't too bad. And how do you fancy it? Life as a teacher must be thrilling. *Why the hell is a London school teacher here in a castle full of vampires? She continues to interest him*

[Typist: For my part, I'm randomly amused by "Why the hell is a London school teacher here in a castle full of vampires?"]

I'm glad. Where do you live now, if you don't mind my asking? London is lovely, I think, though I would like to see other parts of the world at some point. *laughs slightly* I wouldn't say that it's the most exciting part of my life, but I do like teaching.
