    The feeling of the wind in her hair made Alice smile as she drove her convertible. She was getting back home after a date with Raphael and that had gone rather swimmingly as well. Today was just great in her opinion. Though the hour was getting later than she had expected as she pulled into the driveway and then shortly after around back to the garage where all of her other lovely cars were currently stationed. Along with her most precious of transportation that she used for the Crew's activities when they were on the job. Though the whole crew hadn't done anything in a very long time since coming to the island.

    Maybe it was time that they looked for a new target. Get another influx of money into their accounts to add what was already there. But she didn't want to ruin the night with thoughts like that. She like'd to think about Raphael after their dates. It just seemed appropriate to the elf.

    Once she had her car parked she paused for a moment and considered if she should also get her self a motorcycle. Probably not like Raph's but one of the high powered racing bikes she'd seen somewhere. Shaking her head after a moment Alice closed the garage door and walked through the door into her and Jess' Mansion. They had been living like sisters for quite some time now and it had been nice. Before Alice lived alone and one can only do with so much space when one lives alone. With Jess to help fill space when Alice couldn't think of what to do with a room or hall it made Alice's life just that much better.

    But something was wrong, Alice turned a corner and though the TV was on in the main living room, Jess was not watching the show that was on. Instead they were pacing between the couch and TV looking worried. This wasn't so much strange as it more just hadn't happened in a very long time. Stepping forward and placing her jacket on the back of the couch as the tall elf sat on one side of the couch looking at her 'sister' she raised an eyebrow and spoke. "Something wrong Jess?"

    Jessabelle was dressed down tonight, a simple t-shirt and jeans all that covered her small frame. She had cut her hair shorter then it had been since Alice had last seen her, her eyes darting around the room. An unlit cigarette was held in her lips while her hands fidgeted with a fancy gold lighter.

    She started when Alice rounded the corner, her eyes widening and her hand drifting to a knife on her hip. Once she realized it was her 'sister' she relaxed, taking a deep breath and laying a hand over her heart.

    "It took you long enough." Her tone of voice was indignant and chastising, As if Alice was guilty of something greater then being a couple hours late. Had she said when she'd be back? Whatever.

    Jess finally set a flame against the end of her cigarette, taking a couple moments to let the nicotine hit her system. "Was he that good? You didn't let him knock you up did you? Or are you two not compatible that way?"

    Alice blinked a few times at the tone of Jess's voice, she was acting as if Alice was an irresponsible teen who had been out to late on prom night. "Jess, I'm a fully responsible adult. We don't have a curfew and we haven't done anything on the island yet to have any authorities coming after us. What is the harm of me dating someone?"

    Alice turned where she sat and laid down on the couch, her legs draping over the arm, while her hands moved and cushioned her head. "And second of all, we were talking. We haven't proceeded to 'The Act' yet. And hell if I know if we are compatible in that way. I like him, but we've only been out together a small handful of times so far. I'm not letting anyone tap this until I know them better." Alice removed one of her hands from behind her head to gesture at herself as she spoke.

    "And what has you getting your panties in a twist any way?"

    Jess huffed into here cigarette, enveloping her face in smoke. Striding over, she settled down on the coffee table, crossing her arms and legs grumpily. "What, I'm not allowed to worry about you now? I guess it's not like we've made enemies before. Hours of waiting don't feel like days. No, you're right. I should just assume you're okey. After all the last time I did-"

    Jess cut herself short, closing her eyes to try and force the memories away. She drew in a deep breath through her nose. Opening her eyes again and letting them drift away from Alice. "What if... He's dangerous? What can he do? Why's he here? What did you tell him you were here for? You don't honestly think he's just some normal shmuck do you?"

    "I've never said you were not allowed to worry. I just personally thinking you are overly worried about a man I've been spending time with." Alice was actually getting a little defensive of herself as Jess spoke to her grumpily. But as soon as she took in a breath and looked at Alice again, the older elf felt muscles in her back that she didn't realize she was tensing released as she realized why Jess would be this worried about her.

    Swinging her legs off the arm of the couch and instead of laying on the couch Alice sat up to look at her 'sister'. "Jess..." Alice now was the one that sounded worried as she didn't want her young friend, who she did count as family, to think back on what they had done before. "He's a werewolf, so he's probably really strong, have an amazing sense of smell, and other dog related abilities. But the first time we met was during the Magical Creatures incidents. He saved my life from one of them and in turn I took him to dinner. It's all proceeded from there. None of us on this island are normal shmucks Jess. But he is a nice guy who I really like, I've even been able to relax around him more than I have with anyone else outside of the gang."

    Alice looked down at her hands as she shook her head. "It's kind of crazy, I never thought I could feel like this for a man who doesn't work in the same line of work as we do. But he's a clean man Jess, he hasn't had to do what we do. He hasn't felt a need to do what we do. And to be honest, living here on the island. I think maybe all of us can go clean. From what I remember Boulder is working as a bouncer at a club. You and I haven't needed to work for months, legit or otherwise. Maybe it's time we leave all of that behind us..."

    Jess' posture began to relax a bit once Alice started talking to her more seriously. Alice was probably the only one around who could get Jess to calm down after her mind started racing like it was. "... It's not like I don't want you to be happy, but things aren't ever that simple for us Alice. What if he is in the same line of work? Well, probably not the same, but he could be into some dark deals that you just don't know about yet. Has he told you what he does yet? I could probably think of a few handy places for someone with the talents of a wolf.."

    She breathed in another puff of smoke, her eyes glaring at the tv for a moment when she couldn't stand the noise any longer. She lifted a leg to press the off button on the remote settled on the coffee table with her toe. "Boulder likes cover gigs. I've just been stuck in the house going insane. I don't have a crowd to go out with yet, and you haven't taken me anywhere recently." She settled down on the edge of the coffee table, leaning her elbows on her knees and breathing out another sigh. "I... Don't think it's so simple Alice. None of use are just going to 'go clean.' We're a stubborn type of stain."

    A moment passed before she shook her head. "Hell Mama what if he's a cop!?"

    Alice shook her head as she chuckled a little wry and a touch sad. "If he wanted to scam us, or steal from us. Or would attempt to do so, he had several chances to do so. And Raph is to distinct to get away with anything, he'd easily stick in someone's mind. Even here on the island." Alice was looking at her hands and smiling to herself.

    However Jess did bring up some more points. "We could go shooting Jess, I've gone out into a clearing in the woods to shoot some clay pigeons. You've just looked so enthralled in what you were doing here. Or we could go see movies. Hell's bells Jess, we could go shopping together if you want to. You don't have to be stuck here."

    When her little sister pointed out that Raph could be a cop Alice gave a soft laugh. "I doubt that Jess. He doesn't feel like he's a cop when I'm around him. I understand your worry Jess, but honestly he's a normal guy. And I like being around him."

    "There are people that pull 'long-cons' Alice. What if he's good at them because he doesn't seem the type. Hell, that'd make him a good cop too. You still haven't told me what all you've told him about us. Did... Have you mentioned me?" That last question had an odd tone to it. Despite herself, part of Jess wanted Alice to have been talking about her. It would probably cause problems if that were the case.

    She set her cigarette down in an ashtray and flopped onto the couch. A heavy sigh escaped her. "I... Maybe I'm letting this get to me... I just don't want anything to happen to you okey?" She pressed her palms against her eyes, rubbing them up and down her face a couple of times. "Shopping sounds reeaally nice....."
