Doing it Like A Boss: Rieverre, this one is for you...

Post by Psyckosama on Wed May 21, 2014 3:55 am

Alright... this one is for you, Rieverre.

You wake up with a splitting migraine in a that from the impersonal cleanliness could only be in a hotel, and from the sheer luxurious excess of it, could only be a penthouse suite.

You're also not alone in the bed. Next to you is an extremely beautiful woman with long brown hair, and a build that frankly makes you think she'd pretty much be the actress to play Wonder Woman in a live action movie. Her skin is almost flawless except for a purple fleur de lis tattooed on her neck.

She seems to be snoring lightly and muttering in a language that might just be Russian.

I kiss the fleur de lis.

Then I snuggle back in.

Because, no, fuck you, that's why. I've just woken up. I do not care about your circumstances. I do not care about your conditions. I have a hot woman in bed with me, the sheets are superbly comfortable, and we smell like we had sex last night.

The only thing I feel like getting up for is making her breakfast, but nah, not yet.

She groans and opens her eyes. Which immediately lock on you.

"Who da fuck are you?" she pauses. "And where the fuck are my pants?"

... seriously?

This early?

"Victor," I mumble, picking from a laundry list of nom de plume. "First place I'd check is the refrigerator. Or the ceiling fan. D'we have black blood of the ... I mean, coffee?"

The hell are we anyway? I give a glance to the surrounds.

"That," I offer after a moment, memory flashing in. "Was a lot of Finlandia. And Sobieski. And vodka in general. We should have gotten some damn food in us."

"Da. Have to give me a headache like that." She blinks and rubs her head. "Though I do remember a blooming onion."

She sits up and looks around. "The fuck are we?"

I blink right back and give as level a lazy look as I can. "I'm bloody comfortable, that's where."

Pause.

"Looks like a hotel. Of some kind." Look to the ceiling fan and beside table for pants and phones respectively. Also, is there a window. "Not minimalist enough for my place."

Or what I think my place is. Meh. Sod it. It's early. I feel like I've had a long, strenuous night. I'm allowed this much of no fucks given.

you find pants... and other clothes... all over the place...

She gets up and... goddamn dat ass... and starts hunting through the mess for her phone.

She eventually finds it and...

"The fuck are we doing in Vice fucking City?!"

Deadpan look. "You are asking me this. At whatever the ..." I look at a clock. See it's past noon. "Alright, it's not in the AM but if _feels_ like it."

I really don't much feel like picking all of them up, even if adrenalin's making sure I'm not going to be sleeping ... in what feels like ever ... sigh ... okay, I go get my pants. Well, I go get my pants after ogling my bedmate for a while while she dresses ...

Wait, what, we're in Vercetti territory ...

... comes to mind almost immediately.

Then derails.

"There another phone in there?"

I didn't habitually have one, but ... well, _this_ me might.

Hopefully.

And I hope I can actually check it out rather than being transfixed by the appearance of my bedmate ... I mean ... wow ...

... just ...

I'm sorry what?

Oh, its past noon alright... way past considering it seems to be night.

I really don't much feel like picking all of them up, even if adrenalin's making sure I'm not going to be sleeping ... in what feels like ever ... sigh ... okay, I go get my pants. Well, I go get my pants after ogling my bedmate for a while while she dresses ...

She's not dressing. Just getting her phone.

"... okay, I'd not saying anything except ... wow ... just ... I am extremely happy with my drunken reasoning processes right now ..."

"Normally, I'd punch you. But I'm not going to bother."

Wait, what, we're in Vercetti territory ...

Then derails.

You very well might be.

"There another phone in there?"

"Do I look like a fucking maid?"

... well then ... yeah no, not much difference in what I'm doing.

She's not dressing. Just getting her phone.

In that case, just ogling, then getting my phone ... from wherever ... likely bedside table, or inner pocket of jacket. Barring that, I should at least find my wallet.

"Normally, I'd punch you. But I'm not going to bother."

I consider for a moment, then shrug.

"Worth. Every. Punch."

I say, looking straight at her. The whole package is just ... yow. I mean, really. Yow. Pure admiration.

You very well might be.

I pick up the room's phone, call for room service and breakfast.

No, I don't care that it's apparently night, I just woke up ...

...

"You want anything?" I ask the woman.

"Do I look like a fucking maid?"

That body. Naked apron. I think there's a tent in the sheets right now.

"... I have the weirdest boner ..."

What, you want a picture? :p

No need. The image is indelibly BURNED INTO MY MIND at this point.

That said, yeah, I look for my stuff to find out what I can about what the hell is going on.

Hell, what does the room look like?

Hell, what does the room look like?

It's simple, its plain, its darkly decorated in blacks and reds with something of a fire theme to it and tasteful done all around.

You find your cell in a leather suit jacket that looks like its seen better days.

Are those tooth marks?

As for the woman...

She's on the phone. You can just hear the guy on the other line...

"The fuck you been, boss!?"

"I have no idea, I just woke up"

Listen, Shaundi's about ready to flip the fuck out back here. You got to get moving like now!"

"Oh relax..."

"Relax! You've been missing for three fucking days! We were starting to think you were dead!"

"Three days?"

She blinks.

"Alright I get it. Okay. I'll be back as soon as I can get a ticket back to Steelport."

"Wait. A ticket. The fuck are you?"

"I'm in Vice City."

"W-what? You know what, I'm not even going to be surprised. So how the fuck did you get in Vice City?"

"Last thing I remember, I had a couple drinks and woke up naked in a bed with some strange asshole..." she glances at you. "Fuck off before I start to charge you for the view..."

Naked in bed? Damn boss, talk about steriotype. Just make sure you didn't wake up married!

She snorts. "Me, married.... like that would ever..."

He looks at her left hand and drops the phone.

"Boss... Boss?"


She's looking at a ring. A very expensive ring.

"Oh, you've got to be fucking kidding me..."

"Would still be worth it," I mutter.

"You don't think they could get me a good Russian breakfast do you?"

"Probably not, at least not if you want kasza," I go ahead and call up some bread, cold cuts and pancakes as well. Eggs too. And tea.

It's simple, its plain, its darkly decorated in blacks and reds with something of a fire theme to it and tasteful done all around.

You find your cell in a leather suit jacket that looks like its seen better days.

I check the phone's calendar. I don't usually keep one of these on me, but I keep one on my tablet. Since that's not likely present ... well, I can get a decent idea of who and what I got dropped into via that.

Also, leather suit jacket ... I go through the pockets for loose change and my wallet.

"The fuck you been, boss!?"

"I have no idea, I just woke up"

"... oh for the love of ..."

I'm more than a little freaked here, mostly because I fully expected to get married in all of never ...

"There is not enough vodka in the world to make this okay ... wait, no, that might be what got us into this in the first place ..."

You have a wallet. There's a Black Credit Card inside...

She looks, dangerous... deadly dangerous.

She makes a fair point, though ... "Who was the person who insisted on getting right up?" I mutter as I proceed to do so myself.

"Probably not, at least not if you want kasza," I go ahead and call up some bread, cold cuts and pancakes as well. Eggs too. And tea.

"You could ask."

I do so. Won't hurt to try, after all.

Well, it seems you had a business meeting in Steelport.

... oh dear ... yes ... yes I have strong suspicions as to who this is.

Wait, no, I know who this is.

What I'm wondering about is how we got from there to here ...

You have a wallet. There's a Black Credit Card inside...

... oh ... kay ...

At least that means I won't be struggling to afford the room.

Yeah.

She looks at you. "Who the fuck are you and what the fuck is going on."

She looks, dangerous... deadly dangerous.

I toss my wallet at her. Then check for pitchers of water around the room, or barring that, raid the mini-fridge for bottled water. Must hydrate after hangover.

"Hell if I know," I say, then take a swig. "Last thing I remember I was trying to convince a boardroom's worth of suits that vodka hit you harder than whatever they were used to ... we were ordering the good stuff when this gorgeous biker woman came in and ... oh ... wait ..."

I pinch the bridge of my nose and sigh.

"Did we just get drunk, fly halfway across the country, then go on a days-long-bender and finish off with getting married?"

A memory flashed though my mind.

"By _Gandalf_?"

What.

Yeah.

One way to put it...

I toss my wallet at her. Then check for pitchers of water around the room, or barring that, raid the mini-fridge for bottled water. Must hydrate after hangover.

There's a mini fridge. Seems to be full of... well... cocoanuts?

There's also a belt knife and a wooden baton on top of it.

"OF course, sir. We'll have it up momentarily."

Huh. Must be a pretty decent place if they have that, and it's the US.

Going by the credit card and memory flashes ... I check my phone and the speed dial settings. #1 is likely to be whoever actually plans travel out for me. Or a local pizza place where I live. Either.

Oh, what the hell. I call it.

And why you're not jumping out a window screaming because the impact will hurt less and the fall be less terrifying? :p

Well ... she can actually be more reasonable ... I think ... I hope ... no, wait, I just want breakfast.

There's a mini fridge. Seems to be full of... well... cocoanuts?

There's also a belt knife and a wooden baton on top of it.

... when life gives you lemons ...

I proceed to crack one open and hand her half.

"... And here all I wanted was a fucking drink."

"... no, too obvious," I shake my head dismissing the joke.

She blinks. "You mean that wasn't just a fucked up dream..."

She pauses. "And you sure it wasn't Dumbledore?"

"There were _hobbits_ ..."

Facepalm.

"Why were there hobbits? I mean, okay, cute elves in skimpy dress I could get behind. Or in front of. Of just, you know, understand."

It's lonely at the top but it's ... wait, no, no it's not.

The hell is this guy looking back at me from where my reflection was supposed to be though? I mean, he kind of looks like me ... a few years back and after a martial arts training montage.

Actually, if the phone is that fancy it probably also has internet access and GPS ... I look my current location up on whatever map service I have bookmarked there, check the street view, and generally google the hotel as an afterthought.

The last call was made 3 days ago... seems you did most of this by the seat of your pants.

Dafuq. I go through my contacts list and try to find the 'HOME' one. Or possibly 'LAIR'.

... I also scroll past names that _must_ be a coincidence and if they're not I don't think I could take finding out right this minute what with everything else going on. Nope. Not checking. Nope nope nope.

They're water coconuts.

... oh. I debate opening one ... then decide to take the easy way out, if this thing that I am rapidly coming to understand is probably not a dream lets me ... and wait for the OJ and tea coming with our breakfast.

"You make jokes and I'll kick your ass."

"Yeah, okay, let's not."

Since kicking my ass would probably include a one-way trip through the window. And, as mentioned, it is pretty damn high up.

"I thought they were first years."

"We're trying really hard to distract ourselves from the matter at hand, aren't we?" I sigh.

"Well, at least I married someone I can argue about this stuff with." That's a plus, right?

"Obviously, we didn't start off on the right foot. Do-over?"

I hold my hand out. "Victor."

Yeah. You have a truck load of sexy standing just to your right.

Actually, if the phone is that fancy it probably also has internet access and GPS ... I look my current location up on whatever map service I have bookmarked there, check the street view, and generally google the hotel as an afterthought.

Oh, it does.

Your in Vice City... seemingly a city located on a series of pair of large islands in the Florida keys, south of Miami that seems to be known as "Vegas with a Beach Front" in many circles.

Your in a hotel called the "9th Layer" which seems to have a "Hell" theme.

The owner is apparently... well... you.

Dafuq. I go through my contacts list and try to find the 'HOME' one. Or possibly 'LAIR'.

You find both. :p

... I also scroll past names that _must_ be a coincidence and if they're not I don't think I could take finding out right this minute what with everything else going on. Nope. Not checking. Nope nope nope.

One of them is "Tony"... another "Bruce"...

... oh. I debate opening one ... then decide to take the easy way out, if this thing that I am rapidly coming to understand is probably not a dream lets me ... and wait for the OJ and tea coming with our breakfast.

The woman looks over and grabs one, before pretty much butchering the top with the knife in a rather impressive display of strength and knife work. Then she drains it into a glass, drinks it down and starts work on a second.

"Is good for hangover."


"Yeah, okay, let's not."

Since kicking my ass would probably include a one-way trip through the window. And, as mentioned, it is pretty damn high up.

"Good call."

Yes, yes it would and yes it is...


"We're trying really hard to distract ourselves from the matter at hand, aren't we?" I sigh.

"More I'm trying to figure out a way to deal with this shit that doesn't involve one of us taking a swan dive through that fucking window.

"Well, at least I married someone I can argue about this stuff with." That's a plus, right?

"Obviously, we didn't start off on the right foot. Do-over?"

I hold my hand out. "Victor."

She shrugs. "Everyone just calls me Boss... or Playa. I don't give out my name."

Your in Vice City... seemingly a city located on a series of pair of large islands in the Florida keys, south of Miami that seems to be known as "Vegas with a Beach Front" in many circles.

Your in a hotel called the "9th Layer" which seems to have a "Hell" theme.

The owner is apparently... well... you.

I'm the who of the what of the where now?

... yeah, that's a minor freakout happening, but I'm just way too curious ... I click the inevitable wiki link that is the first mention of my name on the page with equal parts interest and dread.

Dafuq. I go through my contacts list and try to find the 'HOME' one. Or possibly 'LAIR'.

... I dial the latter.

One of them is "Tony"... another "Bruce"...

Ignore it. Don't think about it. Just like you didn't see, definitely didn't see, the little Wayne Tech label on the phone or the fact that it seems to be running IronOS.

Oh. Damn. Thought about it.

The woman looks over and grabs one, before pretty much butchering the top with the knife in a rather impressive display of strength and knife work. Then she drains it into a glass, drinks it down and starts work on a second.

"Is good for hangover."

... great, now I'm thirsty. Or rather, I already was but was managing to ignore it. Not so much anymore. I follow suit.

"More I'm trying to figure out a way to deal with this shit that doesn't involve one of us taking a swan dive through that fucking window.

I like how she's being politic about not mentioning that it would pretty much be me doing the diving.

She shrugs. "Everyone just calls me Boss... or Playa. I don't give out my name."

"... aand now I know why I thought you looked familiar."

Then I'm stuck by a sudden thought.

"I also remember paperwork actually being signed before that wizard of questionable identity ..."

Was she drunk enough to do that or did she just threaten Gandalfdore?

You are the owner of the 9th Layer Casino Resort Hotel in lovely Sin City... a beach side resort modeled on a popular culture view of the dark side of the after life, tinted with elements of mythology.

Seems you're basically a less raging douchebag local version of Donald Trump. Or rather your father was... mixed with Hugh Hefner apparently. He died on his 60th birthday though, getting a blowjob from his 4th wife while flying a super sonic jet trainer over the Atlantic.

... I dial the latter.

"Hello sir..." a tired voice answers.

Nah, it's a bit of a mental block there.

... great, now I'm thirsty. Or rather, I already was but was managing to ignore it. Not so much anymore. I follow suit.

She cracks them open like a pro. Something to be said about her ability to bury a book knife in them to the hilt...

I like how she's being politic about not mentioning that it would pretty much be me doing the diving.

Pretty much. She's attempting to be what passes for polite.

"... aand now I know why I thought you looked familiar."

"Oh?" she smirks. "I know I don't get the same Billboard time as Shaundi, Pierce or..." her face falls a bit, "Or Johnny..."

She takes a deep breath. "Fuck. This was the worst time to get fucking drunk."

Then I'm stuck by a sudden thought.

"I also remember paperwork actually being signed before that wizard of questionable identity ..."

You find your briefcase... inside... one marriage certificate, signed by you and the boss here... and it literally says "The Boss"

... I could think of far worse ways to die.

"Hello sir..." a tired voice answers.

"Yes, ahem, I might have just accidentally gotten married ..." Oh dear. There are a few reasons why he might sound like that. Other than dealing with my usual hijinks which I'm not ruling out. Dealing with media fallout ... "The news has gotten their hands on it, haven't they? How bad is it?"

"Oh?" she smirks. "I know I don't get the same Billboard time as Shaundi, Pierce or..." her face falls a bit, "Or Johnny..."

Ooooooooh crap. I'm not just dealing with the Boss. I'm dealing with the Boss going through the stages of grieving. Of which she has all of one - homicidal.

"... let's just get some food in us," I say levelly. "It probably won't help much beyond the immediate issue, but it's a start. Journey of a thousand miles, single step, preferably not involving you throwing me out through the plate-glass window."

If she feels like talking, she'll talk ... I'm not in a position where I can stick my nose in yet.

The mystery persists. So does my desire to find out.

"Unless you planned this shit or worked for fucking Morningstar, you were just as shit faced as I was. We can have this shit annulled and go on with our business."

"I can put my lawyers on it if need be," I nod. The Boss is awesome and all ... but she's also as close to a Person of Mass Destruction as you can get without being blatantly Meta. Hell, for all I know she might be one here. The list of upgrades in the source materials verges on the ridiculous. On the other hand ... hot. No. Bad libido. Bad. Bad suicidal taste in women. "And no, I have not, to the best of my knowledge, ever done business with the Waffle or his organization."

She really doesn't

"Ugh. I need the hair of the fucking dog right now..."

"Wonder if they restocked the minibar while we were out ..." I go check and emerge victorious with a frosted over bottle of vodka. I open it and pour. "Na zdrowie, Wojewoda."

She sorts.

"The Waffle. Good one..." she takes a deep breath. "He killed someone important to me. For that he dies."

She downs half the bottle. "Ah. That is the spot."

I do so. Was it just me doing it or me and the Boss? More importantly, Morningstar being in the weapons business, what are the odds of them having their fingers in that pie?

She sorts.

"The Waffle. Good one..." she takes a deep breath. "He killed someone important to me. For that he dies."

Well, there's nothing you can really do in the face of a declaration like that but nod. "My condolences. I might not have dealt with Morningstar but my people have some things on them that might help you with that. At least where information is concerned."

She downs half the bottle. "Ah. That is the spot."

I just down the shot glass. Pretty sure I'm going to want to get actual food in me rather than just coconut milk before I'm going to be going _there_ again.

You see images of you drinking a bottle of Rum driving a 200,000 dollar sports car while the boss blows up a tank with an RPG and basically wreaks havoc on a scale previously unimagined.

Seems those lessons on how to drive a race car paid off!

It was you... at least yo suspect it was you. You think you spot a man with a grappling hook launcher in one corner of the screen. If only for a moment.

Well, there's nothing you can really do in the face of a declaration like that but nod. "My condolences. I might not have dealt with Morningstar but my people have some things on them that might help you with that. At least where information is concerned."

"I would be thankful for any help you could offer."

"I think we've forgotten one hell of a party," I say, blinking to check if I'm hallucinating this or just seeing things wrong. "D'you remember _any_ of this?"

I show the Boss the clips.

"More importantly, did we win?"

I turn the suite's TV on and do some newsfeed research as well as checking the net, only realizing what I'd said moments after I'd started. Oh god, this place's crazy is contagious. Worse, I think I like it ...

It was you... at least yo suspect it was you. You think you spot a man with a grappling hook launcher in one corner of the screen. If only for a moment.

Oh. _Now_ I remember why that name sounded familiar. But I have to wonder if he's still CIA over here or, with that kind of ridiculous gear and so purely over the top, if he's been nabbed by SHIELD.

I get the feeling I might have found out over those few days.

... I scroll through my contact list to check if Rico Rodriguez is on there anywhere.

"I would be thankful for any help you could offer."

I give her the cliff notes of what I can recall about Morningstar and the other two groups making up the Syndicate over breakfast.

Moments a maid with a food cart shows up.

Be as polite as a guy wearing only pants and a naked woman not giving a single fuck about the fact can be ... and approve of my local incarnation's taste, because damn, that is one sexy maid outfit. The little clip-on horns might be a bit much, but yeah, no, sorry, what was I saying ... oh yes, food.
