[The feed clicks on and, as usual, Christine is in her finest attire, blowing smoke between bright red lips, cigarette in her fingertips. As usual, her neck is covered, this time by a white scarf, concealing an ugly scar.]

I had someone back home. [She exhales, chin tipping softy.] Dirk Harriman; that was his name. We worked together, lived together - when we felt like it. He knew me better than anyone else. We were practically married.

Then he cheated on me. [She rolls her eyes, shaking her head. (She fails to mention she cheated on him, first.)] It wasn't the first time. Except this time he did it with my assistant. Classy, right.

[Her speech is slightly different from usual. As though she's talking to an old friend, not to an audience.

She brushes her free hand on the scarf, holding up its end.]


He gave me a scarf like this one. I didn't think it mattered, but - now I can't help thinking about him.

You always seem to remember the things that shouldn't be worth your time.

[Her stare is a little blank, for a moment, lost in her thoughts. She rolls the cigarette in her thumb, biting her lower lip distractedly. Christine isn't sad or nostalgic. She's angry. The sentiment seems to fade when she sighs, tipping the ash off into a tray.]

But that's just human nature, I guess.

So why don't you tell me about your memories. The last thing you remember before coming here. I'm sure they're much more interesting than mine.

Christine, is everything all right?

[personal profile] withamask 2013-11-11 11:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Would you like to talk about it?

[a tale like that really catches his interest]

What an awful story. Men are pigs, I'll give you that. So few gentlemen who know how to treat a lovely woman, these days. I do hope you have a better time here in this place, madam.

As for memories, I do clearly remember that before getting dragged back here, I was on my ship with my crew just leaving Mermaid Island, and being sent off by the gorgeous Princess herself! I could never forget her face...

I'm glad to hear it. So your request for company and a good dinner was well-answered, I take it? [he'll file the 'and women' part for later, that could prove interesting]

Ah! Mermaid Island is beautiful! It sits in a bubble at the bottom of the sea, where fish from all over swim together with the mermaids and fishmen. The restaurants there are pretty good, too.

[ This is the second time he's heard about a woman being cheated on by someone who was supposed to have been faithful to her. It's a disgusting thought, honestly... infidelity.

He, too, conceals his own neck with the buttoned up collar when he turns on the video.

His brows wrinkle in thought. ]


He... [ A sigh escapes him. He doesn't understand adultery. ] I'm sorry to hear that, Miss Christine.
invoking: commission. (consider.)

Maybe, but...

[ He shakes his head. ]

I don't know much about it. Relationships... I mean, but I do know they're supposed to be a commitment. An honest commitment.

I was impaled on a robot arm and died. It might be a decently harrowing thing, if a bit morbid. It's always odd to think about it now.

[ Hm. But anyhow. ] I hope that you can feel better about your experience in time. I suppose that is one thing we have here, time to collect ourselves.

Memories are always interesting, Ms. Stanford. Particularly the ones a person either wants to forget or tries very hard to remember. There's no need to sell yours so short.

Worthy enough for you to find them worth sharing. That's something, even if it isn't much.

From a biased perspective, it's hard to say if my own memories are interesting to anyone but myself.

buttpatting: they're incredible (don't say a word about my ostrich eggs)

[The scarf catches his eye, oh yes it does. When he turns on the feed, he's obviously in his office, the wall behind him painted a color that one could take as soothing with nothing decorating it but a single painting. Of course, he's in one of his finely tailored suits. Nothing's changed there, but he does seem to be thinking over his own memories before he chooses to actually speak.]

I also remember a great betrayal before I came here. [A pause.] Memories are strange things, though. After being here for so long, I start to wonder what I do remember from home and if I'm remembering it properly. With so much focus spent on establishing a life here, I find myself with little time to spend thinking about home.

What was interesting back home seems to pale in comparison to life in the City. [What wouldn't, really?] Did you see something that reminded you of your home, Christine? Is that what has gotten you thinking?

[Offered her a scarf like the one she had, and she took it. An interesting reaction. He would find far more normal for her to simply refuse, not take it and then go so far as to wear it. But then again, why would Lachesis call in normal people?]

Now you're wearing it. [The desire to delve into the reasons behind it is very strong, but he's not her psychiatrist. She only has to ask, but she hasn't. That ends up ruining relationships, as far as he's seen.] Did Dirk Harriman ever get any sort of just desserts for his infidelity?

[Hannibal has this niggling suspicion that Christine isn't the kind of person to just take that sort of thing and do nothing in return. Not that he suspects she did anything like murder—there's other ways to get back at people. Smearing reputations through the mud, for one.]
