N E E D T O T A L K A B O U T C A N D L E S

on Wed May 16, 2018 3:30 am
Velvet watched as the four kids emerged from the back room, one of them appeared terrified but the rest seemed to show no emotion that would entirely give away what had happened with Akuma and Odd Cat. She frowned slightly, they were unharmed but that was unusual for the two owners of the club; typically they were vicious, even when handling their normal business arrangments. 

Resisting the temptation to ask what happened and eventually escort them all out she stood in the same place where she and Treats had stopped, watching as the one they called Pemble left the building. It was a relief to watch one of them leave, it was a tell-tale sign that the others would soon follow behind him and hopefully, they would know better than to go snooping around in shady places like this. Not wanting to worry about this any further she turned around and slowly began to make her way back to the stage; no doubt that sleazy Binx had already done a small performance and either her or the young bat would have to go on next. 

"Treats, are you coming?" she said, looking over her shoulder wondering if she was still fretting over the children of had decided that it was good enough that they were leaving finally like she had done.

Treats watched as the green cup, Topshooter, if she remembered correctly, followed Pemble out of the building, leaving behind Bottlecap and Benny. The two seemed to have a small chat with each other before they left the club as well. The bat gave a sigh of relief. At least the children were gone and unharmed. That was rather strange to say the least. She knew that Akuma and Odd Cat were ones to normally show mercy. They must of had something in mind.

She didn't have time to dwell on it for long. She glanced over at Velvet as the white she-cat called her name. The teenager sighed as she followed after the older female. Trix trailed along after her like he normally did. Whatever was going to happen, Treats hoped the best for the kids.

Not ready to go backstage and have to deal with Binx's impetuous flirting and occasional arguing with the teenager bat out of frustration. Velvet took a seat at one of the tables off to the side of the stage, given the fact that Binx usually didn't leave the back too often unless he spied a woman that he found worthy of his attention or until he was off the clock. 

She never quite could figure out why he preferred sticking back there, but she guessed that there was a part of him that thoroughly enjoyed his job and wasn't just in it for the fame or money. Probably the only good quality about him though he would never admit it, certainly he was a bit better than some other womanizers in this world that she knew of. A huge part of the white she-cat felt bad for Treats, when she came of age she would have to deal with his antics and even Odd Cat's as well, it was this point she promised herself she would do her best to try and keep the two of them away from her when that happened.

The bat sighed as she took a seat. Trix disappeared for the time being, hiding within her shadow. Binx was more than likely backstage doing his own thing. He wouldn't show up unless he spied a woman he thought was worth his time or until his shift was over. Treats took a moment to glance around the club. Things were rather calm considering what had just taken place. She spotted Odd Cat returning from behind the backroom where Akuma more often than not hung out. The dog hardly ever showed his face to the public unless it was for a good reason. She shook her head as she turned her gaze away before the blue-gray feline could catch her eye. The last thing she wanted right now was to bring one of the bosses towards her or Velvet.

As Treats sat down, the white she-cat looked at her and smiled rather warmly; she enjoyed her friend's company and quite frankly saw her as part of her family. When she saw that the young bat was looking elsewhere she couldn't help but follow her gaze. Odd Cat had returned, and he looked a bit disgruntled, to say the least, even with his permanent wide grin it was obvious that something had disturbed him in there; Velvet couldn't help but wonder if it was because of the kids. 

"I wonder what happened back there..." she mused, chances were she wouldn't find out or she didn't want to know what went down but the possibilities weren't enough to make her curiosity dissipate.

Treats twitched an ear as the white she-cat spoke. She too wondered what had happened in the back room. It wasn't like Odd Cat to look so disgruntled. It wasn't like him at all. The bat could only begin to imagine what had happened back there with Akuma. Whatever it was, she had a feeling it wasn't good. She hoped the kids would be okay. All four of them had departed a little while ago, much to the teenager's relief. It was one less thing to worry about.

Velvet shook her head slowly, she couldn't fathom what could have possibly happened in there. Odd Cat was irritated, but they had let the kids go even after the commotion that had happened before they took them into the backroom. Once again she looked over to where her boss was to see if he was doing anything else out of the ordinary but to her disappointment, he was going back to his normal duties. 

 "Treats, if you or I see kids in here again let's just go ahead and escort them out immediately. I don't think the ones who just left are truly safe from Akuma," She finally spoke directly to the teenager addressing the situation once again, they might not be able to help the four kids who were recently in the club but they could certainly prevent something from happening to any other children who foolishly wandered into this establishment.

The bat turned her attention to the cat at her side. Treats frowned deeply at the feline's words. She knew deep down that was true. A sinking feeling in her stomach told her that something wasn't right. It was like a stone had been dropped. Whatever happened in the back, it wasn't good. Those kids were more than likely in great danger. This was the mafia they had mingled with after all. It wasn't like Akuma or Odd Cat to let things go so smoothly.

"I think that would be a good idea."

"Do you think we should go backstage? If we stick around long enough we'll eventually draw attention to ourselves, and right now I wouldn't want to deal with that," it was true, today's events and troubles had exhausted her and even though she didn't want to deal with her coworker before she felt like she could handle it now after having a short rest at the table they sat at. 

Velvet looked back at Treats, finally breaking away from her curious observations that lead to nowhere. She didn't think the bat would like the idea of going back there very much after the spat she had with the orange and white tom earlier but it didn't hurt to ask.

Treats couldn't help but agree with the cat. Today had been nothing but trouble. First children had wandered into the club and who knew what they got themselves into it, then Binx and her got into a spat earlier. The bat knew that she shouldn't have allowed the orange-and-white tom to get under her fur like he had, but she couldn't help it. There was just something about him that ticked her off.

She didn't want to head backstage at the moment or be anywhere near the feline, but she knew she had no choice. If she and Velvet stuck around long enough, they were going to attract unwanted attention to themselves. That was the last thing that she wanted right now. She could tell the elder female felt the same way.

Sighing, Treats gave a nod as she stood up. The bat began to make her way back towards the stage.

Without another word, Velvet got up from her seat and followed the young bat, shooting one last glance over her shoulder where the backroom was before disappearing backstage. Taking a seat once again she prepared herself for whatever remarks her coworker would say once he finished the song he was singing at the moment and sure enough there he was; walking in to stare at the two females who had returned. The tom scowled slightly at the sight of him--something he usually didn't do--as his eyes caught sight of them. 

"You know, if you two are going to leave most of the work to me you could at least be doing something productive yourselves," he said lowly sort of catching the white she-cat off-guard.

Binx had typically never made complaints, it was a rare side of him that was more ideal for her but it never ceased to take her by surprise when he acted like this. It would be short-lived of course but somewhat enjoyable nonetheless. 

"Sorry, we got a bit caught up..." 

He rolled his eyes at the forced apology that came from her, it was the best he was going to get so he had no choice but to accept it. The orange-and-white feline fell back into the chair that he first sat in when they were plotting to "rescue" the children from this awful place, and eyed Velvet carefully; foreshadowing that his pouty mood had already vanished and was going to be replaced by either a teasing remark or a request they go out to dinner. 

A smirk formed on his face, "What's the matter? You look a little troubled, did the boss come on to you again?" 

And there it was, the first option that she had thought of; even her best efforts to prepare for whatever he had in store for her, was never enough to keep her from getting riled up about whatever came out of the crooner's mouth. It was a wonder how he could be so charming around so many other women. The she-cat stiffened, becoming flustered as the sarcastic question finished processing in her mind. 

"No! I don't appreciate you bringing things like that up when something serious happened!" She snapped, causing him to laugh lightly as usual.

Treats scowled at the sight of the orange-and-white cat. She did her best to ignore him, but that was easier said than done. His remark made the female bat's scowl deepen. The nerve of him! The teenager kept her mouth shut however, seeing how Velvet was going to react. All she did was try to tell him how sorry they were for getting sidetracked for too long. She knew that the white feline didn't mean it. It was forced after all.

What set her over the edge was Binx's other snob comment. Her yellow eyes narrowed into slits as she glared at the smug cat. She wanted nothing more than to sock her coworker for it, but held back for the moment.

"Now isn't the time for that, Binx. You shouldn't make jokes about things like that when a serious event just went down. That's disrespectful. Of course, I wouldn't expect someone like you to understand. Disrespecting people is all you know how to do other than flirting with them."

"I'm just teasing, don't tell me that you don't find it funny how her cheeks just flush whenever she hears something like that. She didn't even have a comeback for me, how adorable." He snickered as he leaned back in his chair, ready to combat whatever Treats or Velvet had to say to him. 

"I-" She didn't really know how to respond to that, and that had to have him feeling more confident or satisfied with her reaction. No comeback, not even another sharp comment from her; this was a slightly embarrassing situation for her at the moment and the only good thing was that it was getting her mind off the previous events still though it wasn't a pleasant experience to be had. Still, completely at a loss the feline looked away, now regretting that she ever came back here; at this point attention from anyone else seemed more blissful than this. 

"Nothing to say this time? Guess what I said could be true after all..." Binx said, squinting his eyes in mock suspicion.

Treats gave a snort at Binx's remark. The orange-and-white feline didn't seem to be able to tell just what teasing was. Teasing only went so far before someone's feelings got hurt. And he had went that far. The fact that Velvet couldn't even come up with something to follow up with, much less say at all, was enough for the young bat to know that things were getting out of hand. The white she-cat had looked away and the tom continued to mock her, looking at her with suspicion filled with it. The teenager grit her teeth as her fingers curled into on themselves to turn into fists.

Trix felt her anger and appeared where her shadow reached. He watched with bright yellow eyes at what was about to go down. He made no move to stop his friend as she stomped over to the annoying feline and socked him square in the jaw.

"I am beyond sick of your shit," Treats hissed, her own golden eyes narrowed as she glared at Binx. "Leave Velvet the hell alone. I'm tired of you treating her like this."

The smug grin he had was wiped clean off his face as his head jerked to the side from the sheer force of the teenager's blow, his eyes were wide with surprise from what had just happened. He hadn't been hit like that in a long time, of course, it was a different situation he preferred to keep secret, but from something that had been occurring long before Treats was able to start working here? This bat was nothing but trouble to him and after the shock wore off his eyes blazed with fury. Binx stood up quickly raising one of his hands, his chest heaving from the huffs of anger that escaped him. 

"Why I oughta-" 

His words had been cut off when Velvet stepped quickly in front of Treats.

"Binx no!" She commanded, causing him to take a small step back. She had never once raised her voice, and that was honestly more surprising than getting punched by the young bat. 

Despite the bad blood between the two cats, he would never really do anything to actually harm his coworker and she knew that; it was never clear why he had never wanted to hurt her but she guessed it was because they had been working together for a while and she was the only woman who wasn't willing to give him a chance at dating her, so in some weird way he considered her a friend even if she didn't seem to like him all that much. 

"I don't know why you would want to protect that bastard orphan, especially after what she just did. Violent children like that need to be taught a lesson, or need to be locked away," he growled looking down at her, still angry but relaxing a little to prevent himself from doing anything. 

"She was just trying to defend me, she didn't mean it!" 

He scoffed lightly at the comment, Treats meant it and he wasn't too sure why she thought that the white she-cat needed to be defended. She was older and while she was more sophisticated and refrained from engaging in physical violence she could at least hold her own in an argument. 

"You got lucky kid, if she wasn't here I would've taught your crazy ass a lesson or two."

Treats scowled at the larger male. She didn't need Velvet defending her like that. She could have handled whatever Binx threw at her. Plus, Trix wouldn't allow anything bad to happen to her. The shadow was protective of her and would come to her aid if she needed him to. The bat never knew why the shadow stuck around her, it was just something that she was used to. Trix had been around her whole life and she was grateful for the shadowy being. He was there when no one else was. She owed him a lot she realized. She saw the shadow glaring at the orange-and-white feline, ready to attack if he dared so much raise a finger towards the teenager.

"You know, you two have been doing nothing but fighting ever since you both met each other. Now Binx, I know you and I don't get along but our spats have never gotten this bad. What's different about Treats?" The white she-cat asked, still standing in between the two of them to make sure that they didn't get into a legitimate fight. 

"She's a violent brat that sticks her nose in everybody's business, who wouldn't get pissed off?" the tom crossed his arms, allowing himself to relax a little more; he knew he was in for a talking to and so was Treats. Yet, he couldn't really blame her for being concerned after what happened. Things were getting out of hand now and he didn't really have an answer as to why he fought all the time with bat other than she seemed to always be the one starting it. 

"That's not a reason, or rather a very nice one...but you two have got to stop with this. One of you has gotten hurt and are you going to just continue on like this until you both are wallowing in pain and self-pity?" She had crossed her arms by now too, stepping aside as soon as she saw that at least one of them was calming down now. Letting the question hang in the air a bit so they could think about it, she looked at them with disapproving eyes. When nothing was said, she sighed. 

"If you two can't get along, then please just at least keep it to only arguing? I don't want any physical violence between the two of you or else someone is seriously going to get hurt. And Binx, I know it will most likely be you considering what happened last time when you go into a fight. But I'm going to suggest this: you two should work at ignoring each other, as hard as that might be, it could help to prevent further situations like this."

She gave another defeated sigh as she finished her short speech, chances were that it didn't make any difference and they would be right back at each other's throats again to the point where one would just end up punching the other again. It wasn't exactly something that seemed like it could be prevented by words, but she didn't think trying to keep the two of them away from each other would be easy, nor would it even be ethical. Feeling that the two were calm enough to be alone with each other now, Velvet made her way to exit the backstage, she no longer wanted to deal with this at the moment. 

"I'm going leave now, but I'm going to be sitting right outside at the closest table possible if I hear anything that remotely sounds like fighting, I'll...I don't know what I'm gonna do, but I'm gonna do something!" She shouted as she made her way outside, taking a seat at the table she had sat at before she went back there and witnessed yet another commotion. The feline didn't know what to think at this point as she put her face in her hands in both frustration and exhaustion. 

"What a long day this has been..." she groaned to herself, gradually dragging her hands away from her head and looking up at the ceiling slightly; what happened was a complete mistake and it was official, the day couldn't have possibly gotten any worse from here on out.

The bat sighed as she forced herself to relax. She knew that Velvet had a point. If she got worked up anymore, she was going to do something she was going to regret. Or Trix was going to do something to the orange-and-white tom that was going to end up with Binx seriously injured in the end. She watched as the white she-cat turned and left the two alone as she promised. Treats didn't say a word. All in all, it was sort of awkward just standing in the same room she had just punched in the face.

Binx sat down once again, occasionally glancing at Treats as he thought about what Velvet had said to the two of them; she was right, as she usually about these sort of things. This fight had gotten out of hand, and if they couldn't learn to tolerate each other or ignore each other there would be a fatal result in it for him. 

He knew it was going to be annoying for him, and he dreaded what he had to say to make things sort of right between the bat and himself but he had to swallow his pride no matter how bitter it was. 

"Listen...I'm, uh...sorry for all the things I've said to you," he finally muttered quietly, not bothering to look at her now due to the fact that he had just apologized to one of his mortal enemies.

Treats was taken aback by the tom's words. That was something that she'd never thought she'd hear in her life. The two of them were like mortal enemies. Why would he apologize to someone he clearly had a disliking towards?

There was a long pause from the teenager as she recovered from her shock. If Binx was going to do this, then so could she.

"I'm sorry too," she mumbled, but loud enough for the orange-and-white cat to hear. "And for punching you earlier."

He was just as shocked as she was when he apologized to her, it was unexpected to hear her apologize back to him. In all honesty he had expected her to remain silent, or just leave him be but this wasn't the case and it felt kind of weird.

"That's okay, I know I have kind of a big mouth when it comes to talking to her but I really don't mean any harm by it and she knows that. I think."

Treats gave a nod at this. The bat knew that Binx was only joking when he said things like that to Velvet, but it still upset the teenager that he'd say things like he did to the she-cat, jokingly or not. Velvet knew he was only messing around, or else the white feline would have left sometime ago. Or wouldn't hang around Binx nearly as long as she did. Nor Odd Cat, she realized. The blue-gray feline was a lot like the orange-and-white tom. Yet the bat could see that somehow she could put up with the silver-tongued cat in pink. She had a feeling that there was more going on between those two than she knew, and Binx more than likely wasn't all to pleased by that neither.

"You look like you're thinking about something, if you've got something to say you might as well say it." Binx said as he noticed that Treats appeared to be wondering about something, or she was probably ready to say some sort of smart remark towards him.

If the second option was true he would feel at least a little better, he's never had a calm moment with someone he hated with all his guts and right now he wanted to feel normal again.

The bat shook her head to clear the thoughts from her mind. "It's nothing," Treats told him at long last. "Nothing important anyway."

He rolled his eyes, he wasn't sure why she wouldn't say anything but it was going to bother him if she didn't. Binx had always been a bit nosey like that and no matter what he always wanted to know what was going on even if it didn't really concern him. 

"If I promise I won't get offended and yell at you, will you tell me then?" he asked, hoping that that would be enough to convince the bat to tell him whatever it was she was thinking about.
