Vaieh: *mutters softly to herself, trying to tuck loose strands of hair back into her heavy bun* Sometimes i wonder why I agree to these meetings. *sighs softly* And this one is here on time. No chance to breath even. At least it's an open area. That should make it harder for him to get stupid. Even if he is pretty hot.
Vaieh: Kali̱méra kýrios Darkwatch? Eímai Vaieh Shiro . Pistév̱o̱ óti eíste me periménei?
(Good Morning Mr. Darkwatch? I am Vaieh Shiro. I believe you are expecting me?)
Oneiro: *Lowers his newspaper as though he hadn't been quietly watching her approach. For long moments he sat perusing her figure from head to toe and back again. Not failing to notice the light of battle that changed her eyes from slightly gold to a stormy silver, he finally gave a curt nod and folded the newspaper with studied indifference. * Sit
Vaieh: *mentally patted her own head as her rear end settled in the seat opposite him, with her legs neatly folded under her. Stifling the urge to bark took a huge effort. This had to go well. Iram was counting on her to negotiate this purchase for Orihs.* Parakalo. (Thank you)
Oneiro: * He interrupted tersely * We will speak English * His eyes snapped to her face briefly as folders and documents were laid on the table* I assume you know how...yes? * not waiting for an actual answer he continued* I have drawn up some preliminary schematics for the design that Shogai specified, but I am puzzled as to why he is suddenly balking on my engine design. It is flawless. Do you have the information to enlighten me?
Oneiro sat there and waited , watching her as she seemed to just stare at him. While he had been speaking she had not moved so much as an inch. While he had folders everywhere on his side of the table. Not a single thing marred the brown wood in frontof her. Instead she sat with a serene expression on her face and seemed to wait. His brows drew together under the dark mop of hair* Well? do you plan to answer me or not.
Vaieh: * raised her brows slightly , tilting her head to one side. She thought"Oh now I guess I can bark on command I can't stand his type any more than the handsy ones" . Out loud "It is flawed in several places and not all that efficient." *Finally pulls out her own computer and files then got down to business* If you would give me access to your computer, I can transfer the alternate design ni-.....Mr. Shogai has in mind for this particular vessel. * Images flashed across the screen. *
Oneiro: *Gave the needed access, watching silently as her delicate fingers tapped out a series of codes. To his surprise his design morphed into something else entirely...completely different than what he had come up with.* This is....nearly genius. Did you do this? What are the specs of this design? *He tried to follow all the information as it marched down his screen from several rapidly opening windows* What makes it more effecient than mine besides the obvious?
Vaieh: * bluntly* To start with, the location of your air intake .........
Oneiro: The reason for that is.....
Vaieh: But if you move them here........
Perhaps two hours later.......
Oneiro: I assume there is a prototype of this built somewhere. Nothing goes in my vessels that I haven't personally inspected an tested to my satisfaction. I want to see it so arrange it for me.
Vaieh: Of course. What day is good for you?
Oneiro: *raises a brow* Oh you can arrange it now? Do you have that kind of power in Orihs?
Vaieh: Merely a matter of conclusion Mr. Darkwatch. It is only natural that a true crafftsman would want the best materials in his finished product.
Oneiro: *remains silent for a time then starts gathering things after mentioning a date good for him* You are staying here in Piraeus ne? *Casually* Give me your hotel and I will pick you up for dinner. 7:30. Wear something nice and not business-like.
Vaieh: Is there something else you wish to discuss about the sale? I believe the offer for your services was quite generous.
Oneiro: That was business. It is concluded until the viewing and testing. This is strictly pleasure. That is what I wish to discuss. Now...your hotel. Or are you going to pretend that you are not as attracted as I am?
Vaieh: Thank you for your kind and...flattering... offer. I decline.
Oneiro: *Looms over her tapping the table impatiently* You are not married or engaged. Your last lover Set, is now happily engaged in raising a family with the woman Lamia. Tell me why you think to deny me.
Vaieh: *looks up, hiding annoyance behind a serene expression* I see you looked into me. Prudent.
Oneiro: Of course. I like to assess everything and everyone I plan to use energy on. And when I see a woman I want, I make sure she is in no way interested in me for my business or my money. And that she is beautiul. You meet both criteria.
Vaieh: * Quietly* I'm flattered again. And again I decline your gracious invitation. While I won't deny that you are attractive, I simply have no desire to acquaint myself with you outside of business.
Oneiro: *looks down at her for more of those long moments he tended to take since meeting her, then walks off. His deep rumble floats back to her* 7:30 tonight. Wear something nice Miss. Shiro.
Vaieh: *Watches him go , mouth opening and closing in outraged shock. Finally, turning back, she rubbed at the headache starting at the base of her skull and growled softly* Dammit...I don't need this.....
