    Re: Viva Luchadora Morte: Marisa Menendez

    "Don't you worry Marisa. The insanity has only just begun," Juan replied with a wry smile as the luchadora vampire got set behind him. The biking vampire pushed forward on the handles with his black clad fingers, setting off the loud hum of the bike's engines against the walls of the abandoned parking garage. It felt like he might just sit there showing off his engines all night when suddenly tires screeched on pavement and the bike shot forward like lightning.

    Juan whipped the bike around the twisty turns of the parking garage and out into the city proper where the night sky was lit up with the colorful lights of the skyscrapers, night clubs, and restaurants. Instead of staying on the main avenues, which were still pretty crowded even at night, they veered in and out of traffic to quickly turn into the darker side roads and alleys where potholes were more dangerous than people.

    It was obvious Juan had used this passages a lot by the way he weaved to the side of each pothole, even dodging to the side of a suddenly opening car door. They stayed on these side alleys and one way roads for a while until the road opened up to a two lane interstate along the Delaware River docks. There was hardly anyone on the road here, so Juan was quick to pick up speed until the air shooting all around them was just as loud as the roaring engines. Trees, signs, and buildings whirred past like a blur with the only constant being the bright light of the moon hovering above in the midnight blue sky.

    When Juan eventually slowed the bike down, they had arrived at the outskirts of the city, not far from the river and with the occasional house here and there. The one that Juan pulled up to was an dilapidated, old Victorian. The house was missing far too many shingles to be respectable. It's windows were boarded up on the sides, and the stairway up to the front entrance way was completely missing. Apparently anyone entering the house either jumped or went a different way. What else missing was any vehicles in front of the house. Still, Juan parked the bike a safe distance away and got up.

    "Enjoy the ride?" He asked with a smile before gesturing to the house. "They always pick the ugliest places to make their zombies and other freaks of nature. Looks like it might be abandoned, but we should still check to be sure."

      Re: Viva Luchadora Morte: Marisa Menendez

      Marisa focused on their surroundings as they rode, trying to figure out where exactly they were in the city and get her bearings. It shouldn't be hard to figure out - it's not like there were a million different museums in the city, after all - but blacking out and waking up somewhere completely different was a bit disorienting. ESPECIALLY since she'd not exactly had any time to gather herself yet - as soon as she'd awoken, she'd jumped out and almost killed a man, and then that insufferable Zorro had nattered at her about all kinds of nonsense.

      Nonsense that was true. Dios mio. Vampires. And now zombies.

      Did the world look any different to her now? She spent most of the ride trying to find out.



      When they got to the derelict house that was supposedly their destination - Christ, it looked straight out of Scooby Doo - she hopped off and gripped the knife's handle in her hoodie pocket. "So check it," she retorted. "You're the one that knows what they're doing here, not me."

      She tied her scarf over her face, leaving just her eyes and up showing.


      After a moment of silence and thinking, she looked at the Don. "Say... are these things like Romero zombies, where I can just stab them in the head? Or are they like those kinda zombies where you chop off an arm, but then the hand starts crawling after you?"

        "Oy caramba! I sure hope not Marisa," Don Juan exclaimed with a hearty laugh. "The blasted fiends may keep coming without the arm, but the arm itself should stay right where it is! They can be nasty little buggers, but you should be fine as long as you give them the old what for. I think you'll find that you'll be able to jump higher, run faster, and hit harder than you've ever done before."

        As they approached the old victorian building, the don went quiet and pressed a finger to his lips. There was nary a sound to be heard apart from the soft cool breeze and the leaves skittering across the ground in the wind. Juan approached the porch and climbed up, drawing a squeak from the old wood. Juan cringed but then turned toward Maria with a rueful grin when he reached the door.

        "One of the benefits of our clan is we possess the unique ability to suppress sound if we so choose... Perhaps I should have thought of that before I stumbled onto the porch like a buffoon!" Juan chuckled though his voice remained hushed.

        "If you concentrate, you will feel the cold darkness within your heart and harness it to create silence. It does not make you move silently but actually muffles all sound in your immediate area, helping to give your enemies a nasty surprise!" Juan grinned widely but then went serious again for effect. "However, they may know that something is amiss when they can no longer hear any sounds at all. Why don't you try it now, then conjure up some of that fieriness to kick down this blasted old door?"

          Marisa stared at Zorro, incredulously, unsure how to reply to this. "...What??" She asked, after some few dumbstruck moments, completely dumbfounded by what he was saying. She hadn't ever heard any tale of vampires that could just... not have sound around them...

          And what did he mean, her heart was cold?! She ought to kick him through the door for that. But... well, she didn't understand what was happening, really. Everything was still a whirl, so maybe the puto wasn't messing with her.

          Marisa closed her eyes, and tried to figure out what exactly he meant by 'harnessing' her 'cold darkness within her heart' (pff). Which at first, simply meant just standing there, irritated and with her eyes closed. Harness... darkness... what, like the Undertaker or something?

          She thought of Zorro, who should have had a magnificent black stallion. Close enough, she thought, and imagined putting a bit and bridle in its mouth, to which it would rear up, neighing, hooves flailing in front of it. Marisa imagined the neigh quieting, until it disappeared... and then it stopped trying to throw her, letting her sit atop it, letting her guide it, so that it would work towards her purposes.

          Opening her eyes, Marisa snapped her fingers a few times, to see whether or not she could hear them. Then - just in case - she dug in her ear, in case Zorro had been sneaky about putting earplugs in there while she had been trying to do his ridiculous task. And, if it seemed like she had truly banished sound from her presence... Marisa spun, envisioning the immense horse who had tamed sound for her kicking. She hit the door right on it's handle, jumping into a spinning back kick.

            It was a strange sensation, but Marisa felt her power kick in right away. She felt something anyway. There was a slight tingle throughout her toned undead body from the ancient power that now lay in her blood. Who knows what else she might be able to do with that power?

            Marisa checked her ears anyway, but the quietis power was definitely working. It was like coating the world around her in a translucent blanket. It snuffed out every possible sound. The fluttering of the leaves, the whistle of the wind, the creak of the floor boards, and the singing of the birds. The only thing Marisa could still hear were her thoughts.

            When Marisa kicked the door, it flopped right down just like a wrestler in the World Wrestling Federation. Zorro smiled approvingly and crept up to the door to look before moving in. Then, Marisa realized that she couldn't even hear him in this silent stealth mode of her's.

            There wasn't much time to think on it because Don Juan went right into the creepy old building The area in their immediate vicinity looked abandoned. Dust covered the sheets that covered the furniture, and the place had cobwebs everywhere. Marisa's silent power added to the effect by making the area eerily quiet. Not even a pin drop could be heard as Zorro made a few motions that looked like he wanted Marisa to check upstairs while he looked in the lower areas.

              He wanted to split up? Damn Zorro, didn't he watch TV? Splitting up never meant anything good in Scooby-Doo! Still, Marisa wasn't going to let him have even the slightest whiff that she might be scared of this place.

              Marisa pulled the knife out of her hoodie-pocket, and made her way up the old stairs, keeping her hands on the railing and wall, and taking each step carefully, in case the thing fell through.
