PostSubject: Smoke Break   Sat Jan 08, 2011 6:46 am

Hunter Kieff sighed whilst he took his first stroll through the park. It was close to dusk then but people still walked the paths and admired the trees surrounding them. As he breathed he watched the plume of freezing breath float passed his face and dissipate into the air. The man blew into his hands and rubbed them together in attempt to warm them as he had forgotten to bring gloves that day. To compensate and hide his dyed black hair, he had tied a bandanna around his head and put his hood up in order to cover himself from the wind. He was not wearing his hoodie because he had to return to the hot kitchen once his break was over, but he still had the white apron strapped to his front, a black short sleeved shirt, baggy black jeans and his favorite boots. There were a few distinguishing scars on his forearms and hands from his passed encounters, but they seemed to be fading slightly; although if one were to look they would know that they were from deep cuts and lacerations. These scars were usually covered by the jacket he always wore but today they were out for all to see. The man reached into the front pouch and pulled a cigarette from one of two packs, "It's been a long day..." he muttered, his russian accent distinct in the english, "I just want it to end so I can go home." he took a long drag on the light and blew it from the corner of his mouth. He had been smoking since he was thirteen, and it just began to catch up with him. In the middle of exhaling the smoke he began coughing, hacking up bits of phlegm and god nows what. He spit the gob into the dirt and noticed a speck of blood. It was the price to pay for being a 'pack a day' smoker.

He continued to stroll through the park until he reached a bench covered from the wind by a few trees. He took a seat and stared at the water, crushing the butt of his used up smoke and lit another, "I really need to work on quitting this." he said to no one in particular, "But it helps take my mind off of the juice." on top of his smoking he got into the heroin business. Like most consumables he had the urge to test his own shipment. Since then he was hooked on the stuff. That day marked his first week without putting the needle into his arm. He celebrated that accomplishment like he did with any other occasion; by himself but without a drink to make it sweeter. As he sat there he reflected on bringing down Red's apartment complex. I didn't bother him that he did it, and he knew that she had no reason to suspect him; but it still irked him that he put hundreds of other people out of a home. The very thought of it made him sick.

Nadia had her hands shoved into her pockets and she rumaged around the junk in there for a cigarette. She was on her way back to her dingy motel room and needed to pick up a new pack on the way. As she passed a guy sitting on a bench she noticed his cigarette. Though she walked past she slowed. Wouldn't hurt to ask. And hell, I know it's possible but he's not gonna pull something on me.

She stopped and turned back to walk up to the guy. "Hey man, sorry to bug you but do you have a light?" She pulled the cigarette out of her pocket partway.

Hunter looked up at the new woman and nodded," Yeah." He said, his accent thick. He reached into the front of his apron and removed his golden zippo lighter, flipping it open and starting the flame. He reached over the cigarette and lit it for her, taking a drag on his own as he did so, "So what brings you here?" he asked as a plume of smoke floated from his lips.

Nadia took her cigarette back, nodding her thanks. She took a drag as she shrugged. "On the way somewhere, on the way no where." She glanced around her as she stuck her free hand into her back pocket.

He noticed her hand slip into her back pocket and watched as her eyes glanced around; as if something were bothering her, "You have anything on your mind?" he asked, "You seem tense to say the least." he brought up his right hand to wipe his eye and said, "I'm Damien by the way."

Nadia laughed slightly and waved his question away before taking a drag. "Nah, just life. It's nice to meet you Damien, I'm Ali."

He smiled and said, "The pleasure is all mine." He flicked the butt away and leaned back in his seat. Hunter thought for a second about what she said and replied, "Something must be up if you have to keep looking over your shoulder." He coughed into his fist, "Although I have done my fair share of that."

She took another drag and shook her head. "Habit," she told him. "Honestly, habit."

He nodded in reply and reached for another cigarette but shook his head and placed the hand on his lap, "Sometimes it's a good habit to have." he said. "But if someone were to be gunning for you they would go great lengths to get close. For me, I only get uncomfortable if it's too quiet for too long, you know?" Hunter stared off at the water and began rubbing the larger scars on his arms unconsciously, a habit of his.

Nadia glanced at him, drawn by his statement about 'I only get uncomfortable if it's too quiet for too long'. She nodded, a slight smile on her face as she took a drag. Her gaze flicked to the scars on his arm. Damn. She looked away quickly, not wanting him to notice her watching. "Well thanks for the light," she said, crushing the finished cigarette under her boot.

He noticed that she looked away from him and looked down to his scarred arms, "If you were wondering about these I wouldn't mind telling you." he said, "That is if you have enough time to hear the story."

She shook her head a little. "No, gracias. No quiero que se entrometen," she replied. She laughed slightly, almost nervously, and ran a hand through her hair. "Sorry," she muttered. She hadn't spoken spanish in a while but sometimes it just slipped out. She coughed and looked at him. "I don't wanna intrude."

Hunter chuckled as she spoke in Spanish, "It's fine." he said, a slim smile on his lips, "I really don't care if you know the story; it helps me mentally to tell a bit of my story in a way." he said. He rubbed one of the longer scars and chuckled, "They don't hurt me anymore; but it still sucks to wake up every morning and stare at these you know? Reminds me that life sucks at times." He looked over to Nadia, "But without the pain you can never know what joy is. Just need to stay positive."

Nadia nodded, a small smile finding it's way to her lips. "Hell, I couldn't say it better myself." She nodded in the direction of his tatoos as she spoke: "I've seen some guys get those, a couple friends way back when... Damn. If you got those in any way similar to my friends then I have to give you props for living' and keepin' goin'." She ran a hand through her hair as she looked at him, her mind switching between flashbacks and the present. But without the pain you can't know what joy is...

He took a deep breath and explained the story of his father, mother and even Damien. Although he changed the name from Damien to Hunter, "Most of those scars have faded, and they are in places unseen." he coughed and continued, "But the ones that can be seen are from my time with the Russian Guns. We had small but important territories throughout Russia, some in the U.S. and many in Asia. There are none of us in Japan though. There were jobs that went smoothly, and in the ones that went wrong we would either face punishment, get killed, or captured and tortured. I was punished for things very little; I always got my man. But I have been captured." he held up his arms and patted them, "And that's how I got these. There are more around, but I don't like taking my clothes off in the cold."

Nadia nodded. "Understandable." She crossed her arms loosely across her chest, vaguely remembering what her gang did to their own captives. She herself had only been present for one, where she had to watch a guy get shot several times before the fatal shot was fired, but she had been told about all the others. Everyone was. They were warnings because if you double-crossed the gang they would do that but ten times worse...

She shook her head, snapping herself out of her daze. Can't afford to do that. "I'm probably supposed to say something like 'I'm sorry to hear that' but I'm not sure what to say," she said with a weak laugh.

Hunter shook his head when she mentioned the whole apology thing, "You caused none of it; so you have no reason to feel sorry for me." he coughed once again, "Unless you ran with the people I was told to kill. But I cut my ties with the mob a long time ago. They left me hanging when I was sent to the cage; so I left them in general. That can properly explain why I'm here."

Nadia growled quietly. She hated when your own gang just left you. She hadn't been in that situation but a close friend, a good friend, a good person had been killed because his gang hadn't backed him up."What happened to 'The gang's like a family, we're there for each other no matter what'? Fuck. This guy is making me think too much.

"Just left him," she cursed quietly under her breath. She pushed her hair out of her face as she looked up. "Sorry for the circumstances I guess. And you're here because..." She didn't want to assume, but she didn't want to seem stupid. "Your gang left you in the cage, then you got out and went to find another place to crash

He nodded, "I wanted an escape and I thought America would be a nice place to stay. Unfortunately I hitched on the wrong ship and got mailed here. So that makes me an Illegal; some random Russian who works as a dishwasher and cook in a mom and pop cafe. It's a nice place to work and all; but nothing ever happens. I find myself not using the 'degrees' I received. Unfortunately this Kira guy keeps getting in my way."

Lets see if she knows anything... It could help me later.

Nadia had to laugh quietly at the guy's bad luck. "Thank sucks." She was quiet for a second. "This'll probably make me sound stupid but how does KIRA get in your way with being a dishwasher? Unless I'm completely overlooking something you've said." She laughed nervously. She knew what he meant by degrees but still...

"It doesn't." he stated flatly, "I just thing it would be hard to get some real footing in this place without getting myself killed. People are dying for stupid shit like petty theft; so if I get caught for something big, I'll get an example made out of me. So all I need to do is get Kira out of the way for good... Even if it means making him drop off of the radar before I do."

Nadia shrugged. "There are ways of staying under the radar. KIRA can only see what everone else does, so if no one else can see you then he can't. No matter what he says, he isn't God." There is no God... If there was then how could He let this go on for so long? It's all bull shit

He nodded, "But from what I understand there can be people working for him everywhere. Inside men can become frequent when something like their life is on the line... Not many people are the 'self sacrificing' type."

"If you're involved with a small group, or any smart group, there's less of a chance of inside men." She shook her head at the stupidity of groups. Three men can share a secret if one of them is dead.

Hunter shrugged and pulled the notepad from the front pouch of his apron and plucked the pen tucked behind his ear. He began scribbling something into it and ripped the page out, folding it twice, "This is the cafe that I work at. If you have any insight or even need an extra hand in something, I'm willing to work." he held the paper in between his index finger and thumb and pointed it in her direction, "Unless you don't need anything that is."
