“We're here to kick ass and chew bubblegum... and we're all out of bubblegum.”

Place number two was a former topless bar. The old name and the ubiquitous Live! Girls! Live! could still barely be read on the faded sign in the parking lot, although the new name read "Hellkitties" over the door. Faith left a pile of dust where the bouncer'd been, threw a five at the femaleish looking thing behind the cage for the cover, and sauntered in.

There were dancers on the stages scattered around the place dancing to music, but none of them looked completely human, and not all of them had only two breasts. All of them did have g-strings filled with dollars, and drooling male-ish looking things clustered around hooting: showing that demon strip clubs weren't that much different from human ones.

Again, a pair of bodyguard looking types in suits, these purplish and scaled, moved to intercept as they headed towards a table near the back with a group of more important types settled at it. The thugs proved to be completely incapable of dealing with a quick, dark-haired blur that tumbled between them, leaving a pair of knives buried in their diaphragms as she rolled to her feet past them. The two behind the table also proved to be incapable of dealing with a slender leather clad girl with a bow who left a silver tipped arrow in each one's eye and came to a stop with her bow trained on the forehead of a third.

Greyskin half stood and snarled as Faith came to a halt in front of the table, sword level with his adams apple. "Do you have any idea who you've just annoyed, human?"

Faith looked quizzical, relaxed and loose. "Guess? I'd say a table full of this end of J-City's demon-mob heads and their toadies. But I could be wrong. If so... " she snickered. "Ehrmm... oopsie?" She inclined her head slightly. "Name's Faith."

Several people at the table and nearby stiffened slightly. Grey-skin came closer to looking apoplectic than Abby'd have guessed it was possible for something like that to look. His eyes narrowed as he said, very quietly, "Your name is corpse," and started to motion something.

Faith's smiled gently and asked, "Is that your consiglierrie?" She inclined her head slightly to the one just behind him, who nodded fractionally, eyes never leaving her.

Her hand blurred and a silvered spike stuck out of the seated one's eye. She met and locked the eyes of the standing gray skinned being. "Congratulations on your promotion."

He merely met her eyes back, levelly, and said "Seems somewhat abrupt."

"Could be brief, too," Faith said, her eyes hard and cold on his...
