With Roan


Vulcan observed the other residents of the building with a neutral look upon his face despite himself wanting to ask questions. Was this place some sort of guild? A strangely decorated one at that. They're actions of bowing towards Roan made it appear as though he had some sort of respectable standing in the place.

He climbed the stairs with much ease.Arriving at Roan's room, he gave the man a questionable look, "Filled with such abnormal pleasantries...this is what you call your room?" It was more so what one would call an apartment. Vulcan walked over stiffly to where the couch was, but did not sit in it. He stared at the couch with a slight frown, ,it's cushioned seats...well...he looked at it like it was a dangerous entity, before proceeding to plop onto the floor.
"Simply nothing obscene. Let the music you are most fond of be what you play." The man nodded his head intently.

"Well, yes. I stayed in a much smaller one when I first come here, I assure you." Roan poised his hands next to the harp strings and nodded at Vulcan's request. "All right." He thought it an odd choice that one would sit on the floor when the couch was more comfortable, but perhaps Vulcan was more familiar with the floor than the lavish couch next to him.

Roan began to play a slow song. It's melody weaving in and out of the strings. The more he played, the faster it became, swelling with emotion before bursting. Gradually, he slowed the tempo down and finally ended the song. "Was it to your liking?" he asked the other man before standing and picking up another instrument. "If you're in an agreeable mood, I'll play you another."

VULCAN

"Ah," Vulcan watched intently as Roan's fingers dance delicately upon the harp. Quite fascinated, the man placed his hand on heavily black-tinted glasses, removing them from his face to get a better view.

Light sparks emitted off of Vulcan as he immersed himself into the music.
Eventually, he closed his eye as he listened to the melody. The notes floated around. They were light and gentle, but with a strong conviction at the end. The song's rhythm had the flow of a river.

While he didn't notice himself, the demon let slip a slight sigh of content as Roan finished the song.
He looked at the man with genuinely great amusement in his one eye. "For a creature such as you your playing It's very tolerable to the ears...another song...would indeed be pleasant."

Roan was pleased that he had liked it and smiled. "As you wish," he said and brought the violin into position on his shoulder. He held the bow over the strings and began to play. And so it went for hours and hours. Each time he played, he used another instrument. On the last song, he used his voice.

When he finished, Roan was glad for the cool breeze that came through the balcony doors for he was hot after so much playing. "Would you care for a drink, Vulcan? I will be having some iced tea and maybe something to eat. It was the afternoon now, his breakfast no longer satisfying his hunger. "Your eye is beautiful, by the way. I've never seen a color quite like that."

How peculiar that this creature got so hungry whereas the demon could go on for a week of not eating. Vulcan rose up from his seat on the ground, This time around, perhaps he would take up Roan's offer. "...Any type of scolding tea,"

As Roan took note of his eye, Vulcan momentarily covered his left hand over it. He spoke with much unease, "An unnecessary comment I would say,"He wasn't exactly used to being complimented, much less about any point of his rough appearance. Presuming that most people were distracted by the fact that he had an eye patch on the other half of his face.

Vulcan turned his attention to the variety of instruments of all shapes and sizes in the room. Walking over to get close to them, but never placing his hand directly upon them. They were too delicate for his touch. And very much so, it must have been considerably expensive to obtain them he figured.
"Is this the calling of your establishment here?
Admittedly...wonderful...musical prowess? Or is this hobby of yours just so?" Vulcan spoke with strangely a tad bit of genuine curiosity regarding Roan's decent living accommodations.

Roan nodded and relayed the message via trainee to the kitchens. One was always outside his door. Usually there were several outside his door in case he ever needed something that his room did not supply. However, there were only two during the day and he'd already sent the first one with his order. "I told them as hot as possible, though with your element, I doubt you'll find it too hot."

He smiled and moved to sit in the living room to wait until the tea and light meal he had ordered were served. Raising an eye brow at Vulcan, his smile turned into a grin. "You're not used to people actually looking at you and seeing something other than the fact you could probably kill them, are you." It wasn't a question.

At his question, both of Roan's perfectly sculpted eyebrows rose. "You mean to say that you do not know what kind of establishment this is? Do they not have brothels where you are from? I imagined that they simply existed everywhere. And, no, it is not a music school, though we are all trained in at least one instrument. I simply took it upon myself to train in every one I could find. And thank you for the complement. I practiced many hours to be able to play them."

When their tea arrived, the trainees served them and them promptly exited, bowing to Roan as they did. "Please, try your tea. If it is not to your liking, I shall see to it that you receive another pot that is."

Vulcan moved away from the instruments, moving over to the living room.
"Che," he was perturbed for a moment at Roan's correct comment . Well, Vulcan wasn't one to hide his intentions as much as he'd liked to.

"A brothel you say?" He placed his hand over his face once more as he took in what Roan's words. He understood very well what it was. Vulcan could recall entering one once or twice before...mostly for a personal attack on certain people that entered such establishments than the simple folks that worked in them...

"I am unsure if they are that common...but I have never entered in one such as elaborate as this. Nor did they have men as I presume you are."

The demon wasn't eloquent about his consumption of the tea, drinking half of it within a matter of seconds while it was supposed to be piping hot. There was the slightest hint of lemon as the liquid hit his tongue. It wasn't horrible. It was still pretty lukewarm considering what usually entered his body.

"Really? Well, I'm not very surprised. This is the best brothel in the entire Earth tribe, and I am the most sought after, or the number one. That's why I live up here. The instruments are mostly gifts from those who appreciate my . . . talents," he said, deciding that was a good choice of wording.

"And you are correct, I am a man, though that doesn't stop people from seeing what they want to. I have cleared my schedule for tonight, so you are more than welcome to stay with me." He eyed the other man as he quickly consumed his tea. "Shall I have another pot sent up? You seem to be going though that faster than I had anticipated. If you'd like, I can play again after lunch. I've never had a listener like you."

" Hm." Vulcan nodded. "Such a convenience for one to have a non-threatening talent. "People really were so strange. Gifting such luxuries of instruments because of their techniques in bed? Perhaps he would understand it better if he were an incubus, the type of demon fond of such activities.

"Welcome...to stay...."
Vulcan sighed at where he was now. Drinking tea with whom he found to be still a stranger. This had certainly derailed from his initial plans. A simple idea, it was to wander into a few buildings, perhaps burn them down if he was in the mood to. Then after that, go to sleep in the back of an alley.
Time had gotten away from him due to the long-haired man before him.

"Another pot? I would say...not,"Vulcan was rather still reluctant towards accepting Roan's hospitality. "...In regards to songs...only if you so wish to play once more,"

Roan nodded, finishing his lunch. "Of course. I usually don't have such a willing audience. Well, I guess I should say not one that is so patient." He had their dishes removed before heading back into the music room. The piano had always been one of his favorites. He started out only playing at first, letting the melody travel where it would before adding his voice to the song. It was an ancient language, one he had never learned the translation for. However, it's haunting beauty had never left him since the moment he heard it long ago and he'd worked hard to reproduce it.

Again, hours passed without interruption. As night fell, Roan's playing faded. "Thank you for listening, Vulcan." He looked over the other's appearance, noting even the tiniest details. "Would you mind helping me with something?" he asked him, standing and moving over to his bedroom. Walking through it, he stepped into the lavish bathroom that was attached. "Could you wash my back for me? It's quite hard to do one's self." He took off his shirt, turned on the hot water for the bath and waited for it to fill. In the mean time, he shed the rest of his clothing. "If it's too much of an over step, I can call someone else."

How long had it been since I have heard such sounds? Vulcan pondered. Far too long it had been.

"Ah," he scratched his head, as he had listened to Roan's request while following him to the bathroom. He wasn't exactly fond of touching other people. Being helpful wasn't his strong suit. Of course, the man had allowed him to listen to wonderful tunes. Having truly enjoyed the performance, it was the least he could do right? But then there was also the matter of him not comprehending the point of sanitation the way Roan seemed to be suggesting.
"I would reply with a no...but I must first inquire...well, washing ones back...I would not quite know where to begin in doing such an action. Is it not sufficient to pour water upon oneself as a means of being cleanly?" Vulcan looked around at the objects in the bath: a sponge, neatly folded towels, soap, and such. Things he had seen before, but not something he would often use himself."Fire is most efficient with eliminating the distastefulness of a living filth upon oneself."

Roan chuckled and shook his head. "No, not quite. And as for the fire, well, I am not you. It would simply be painful and most likely kill me." He walked around Vulcan, slowly taking his jacket off. "But, perhaps a practical example would be a better learning experience." He was holding the jacket in one hand, the other stretched out to receive the rest of Vulcan's clothing. "From what you're saying, you've never had a bath. You might find it an enjoyable experience."

"It is not like one must be consumed in the wake of fire, simply standing next to it is fine,"

Vulcan sighed, facing away from the man in his current general discomfort of socializing . Simply going with the flow of things.He placed his hands on the rim of his black under shirt, he easily slipped the article of clothing off. Notably long jagged scars could be seen running slanted across his back. He removed all but his boxers and eyepatch, handing the rest of the clothes over to Roan.


"It is simply water. Nothing with it is in any regards enjoyable."

At that, a bubble of laughter escaped Roan. "I would think you would come back smelling of a roast, or at least a smoked ham." As his back was exposed, Roan trailed a fingertip lightly over one of the larger scars. "Where did you get these?" he asked, his eyes darting over the rest of his back.

Roan collected the rest of his clothing, folded it, and placed it in a basket next to his own. Eyeing Vulcan's boxers, he glanced toward the full tub. "You know those are going to get soaked. If you're uncomfortable with nudity, I can offer you a towel to use instead so you have dry clothes after we're finished." He smiled and walked over to the tub. "You might be surprised how nice water can be with company."

"Where did I get what?" Vulcan questioned Roan. He was incapable of feeling the brief delicate touch upon one of his scars.

"Ah, I suppose I wasn't thinking quite thoroughly when neglecting to removing all clothing " The man complied with removing his boxers. He himself placed them in the basket with the rest of his clothes. Vulcan moved over to the tub, placing his feet in. He could only hope his presence doesn't react too much.
