We're a crime/mafia roleplay set in the present-day Chicago.

After bombing the harbour, the new gang in town, Enigma, all but declared war on the most powerful family in the city, the Bianchi Family. Police struggled to capture the culprits and were well on their way to build a solid case against the Bianchi, but their hard work was set back once the police department was bombed. Now, the war between the two sides is more heated than ever, and the casualties only tend to grow.

UPDATE 10 - 05/2017 There's...something rumbling, or perhaps brewing, among the people of Chicago.

UPDATE 09 - 04/2017 May is almost here, and we've decided to say goodbye to April with a shiny mini event! Thank you Bishop for the amazing idea, and for everyone who's getting involved!

UPDATE 08 - 03/2017 March is here! A few layout modifications jumped out of nowhere, nobody panic! Spring cleaning is also over and as such, claims and canon roles have been opened as we cleared out the inactive. Stay tuned for IC and OOC news & announcements!

"I want to be like water. I want to slip through fingers, but hold up a ship."

ASTERIN SARGENT



A
sterin knew better than to judge people by their exterior, but still she really doubted he was a murderer. The situation was suspicious enough to be out of ordinary, she braced for a hard truth, something at the border of illegality and morality. Something still redeemable, still forgivable.

He didn’t even have to mention his mother that she was already in Asterin’s mind. Spending time in his company, she began to remember more and more, fragments of images and feelings. No, this boy couldn’t be a criminal, a murderer. She had met some, in brief passing, and couldn’t see that in his eyes. But she also knew how easily it was to get tangled with the wrong crowd. And he had all the necessities for that.

She listened silently and when he mentioned his mother the second time, she felt the urge to hug the life out of him, if it hadn’t been for his injuries. So instead she puts her hand over his and squeezes a little, before letting him eat further. She should eat something herself, but she didn’t feel like it, not while this conversation was going on.

”I believe you” and offered a small smile in regards to him swearing about guns and killers. When she made the joke about it earlier, she didn’t expect a full confession, only some vague admittance, excuses and a change of topic. This only proved to her he was not the bad kind, only on the wrong side, due to injustices in life. ”Them double-crossing you is only proof that you’re not like them, you don’t belong in that world” she said in a small voice. She wanted to continue with ‚I’m glad you got out alive’, but she didn’t want to assume. She knew how that kind of life sunk its claws into people.

She didn’t expect the sudden movement and desperation and it only made her want to throw stuff at the people that did this to him. She squeezed his hand again and nodded. ”I promise. But you have to promise to listen to me too, about your injury. You need rest. You should stay here a few days. Blood loss is no joke. Okay?”

Deep inside, Cole wanted to start weeping uncontrollably at the shitfest his life had become. He wasn’t sure to be happy or sad that Asterin had accepted his confessions with barely a remark edgewise, understanding somewhat and not adding any questionmarks to all that he had done.

He felt he didn’t deserve such trust, especially not from someone like Asterin who didn’t deserve to be caught up in his crap, as a woman with a career as hers had enough crap to deal with in the first place.

He wanted to laugh, cry, and straight up kiss Asterin for what she had done for him. And from a memory that had been pushed far back, he was reminded of his mother’s not-so-subtle prodding of Cole towards Asterin. Even on her god-damn deathbed she had cared more for taking care of his happiness rather than her own, trying to accept what was happening and let go of all the pain.

But Cole hadn’t let go, it had been a wound that continued to hurt. He was the world’s saddest mother’s-boy, but he’d fight anyone that would assert that it was a bad thing.

And as far as her mother trying to play match-maker for Cole in her final days, it was something he refused to act upon, his life was too miserable to share with people that deserved only good things.

Letting out a sigh, he snapped back out of his depressed ponderings thanks to a jolt of pain every so often to remind him he should be dead.

Glancing back at the doctor’s eyes, he forced a warm smile to appear on his lips. ”Doctor’s orders, right?” he remarked, trying to not feel like a total burden on the woman’s life.

”But… What if someone visits, or your roommate comes home…” He pondered emptily, the contents –or lack thereof- of the woman’s cupboards already having told most of the story.

he could see in his eyes that he was going through some stuff, but she didn’t inquire. At least for now. Hell, he deserved a break, he should be resting. Stress really could hinder his healing. At least for now, they could both breathe easily. And it seemed her appetite returned, so she nibbled here and there.

”Oh, don’t worry about that. We didn’t move in, yet, I’m supposed to pack, yet it still takes a while” and offered a guilty look at the boxes laying around, most of them still empty. ”She might drop by to help but I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t before giving me a call. If she even has time, her work keeps her even busier than me. Anyway, I'll deal with that when and if the time comes” More relaxed than before, Asterin laid back in the chair, chatting a little bit lost in thoughts. She was trying to think of anyone else but honestly, there wasn’t. But she didn’t continue out loud.

At one point, when he wasn’t looking, she took a peek at him, at his handsome face. She wondered if nobody would wonder where he went. She knew about his mother, sure, but what about his father? His friends?

Still, this was not a topic for discussion either. Instead she focused on her role and what she can do. When they were done eating, she left the plates in the sink and got the medical kit, talking all the way. ”I should change your bandage. Keep the wound clean. And I should be able to get some stronger antibiotics, but I have to go out. And painkillers. I have to shop for some groceries too. As delicious as it is, I don’t think any takeout would be good for you. So any preference? I mean, it will include a lot of vegetables of course. Also, I should warn you I'm not very great at cooking, so staying here might not be the five star vacation. I have TV though” and finished with a chuckle.

”At least we got something in common…” Cole remarked with a pained laugh at Asterin’s mention regarding her terrible cooking skills. He himself mostly sustained himself on fast food and the occasional ‘proper’ meal from cheap enough restaurants near his home. ”And if your roommate comes around, I’ll just stuff myself in the nearest closet.”

It felt weird to make jokes and smile about anything in a situation such as his, it had been only hours since his life had hung in the balance and now he was making light of everything as if it was the most ordinary thing in the world. And the throbbing pain in his side made it obvious that absolutely nothing was ordinary about the entire situation.

When Asterin was finished with the bandage, he opted to explore that option of watching TV all day. This time it being a requirement, rather than just his natural state. ”Hopefully your TV gets the white sox games, Doc. Else my path of recovery could be straight up painful!”

Checking the couch he had lied on earlier, he now could really inspect the mess he had left behind when he had come in bleeding out. Drops, smears, and puddles of dried blood ran all the way from the door to the couch where only a plastic tarp had prevented the couch from being utterly ruined.

Feeling his body struggle to keep his weakened body standing, he slowly dropped his ass down onto a chair that his bodily fluids hadn’t ruined, the sight finally starting to make him realize how close to the brink he had been.

he smiled and thought that surely, there must be something more in common. Only a split moment afterwards she actually wondered. Was he so different? A criminal forever? Life has thrown challenges at him, but it wasn’t over. Life went on. Who could say what may come? Besides, maybe they would discover other things in common while he healed at her place.

”Don’t be silly!” she laughed. ”If she comes, I’ll just say you’re a friend. Or family. You had surgery someplace else and I help you recover. No one needs to know the details. Or you can just act really hungover and stay in bed and sleep” Though the thought of him hiding in the closet still left a smile on her lips. Maybe if he wasn’t so injured. She had never got to do that in high school, hide boys in the closet. Maybe she could pretend. But would it be as fun?

Meanwhile, she had gently took the old bandages off, cleaned the wound, and rebandaged it. She finished by cleaning things around and offering some more painkillers.

”Hmm, honestly I have no idea” Ok, so maybe finding things in common could start after sports. ”There must be. Since I moved to Chicago, all I can hear is baseball here, basketball there, just balls everywhere!” she pretended to be exasperated.

While he sat in the livingroom, Asterin went from room to room, looking through boxes. ”Also, let me try to find you some clothes. You can’t stay forever like that. I don’t have men clothes, I’m sorry. But I do have oversized t-shirts. I like to be comfy” and shrugged unapologetically, coming up from her bedroom with a couple of clothes. "Now, pants. Hmmm, do you really need them?" she joked. And then immediately wondered if it was too much.

"If you're gonna live in Chicago, you gotta get into sports. Else you're not Chicagoan!" Cole exclaimed with a cautious smile, trying not too laugh and have the pain shoot through his body. "... Well, except the Bears, we try to forget they exist."

Watching the woman fret over him made him feel weird inside, he wasn't used to people caring for his well being. More often than not the only thing people cared for was his driving, or his drink-pouring when he had worked. But never further than skin-depth.

"Please, I'll take anything you can spare." he felt bad enough bleeding all across her house, he didn't want to ruin anything else.

When she returned with a stack of clothes, he quickly started to blush and stammer a little bit from the words that came from Asterin's lips. "I... uh..."

"If I didn't knew any better, I would think you were flirting with me... Doc." he stammered together, wondering about the interesting timing from the good doctor.

He wasn't exactly in any state to even think about flirting with anyone. And feeling the blood rush through his head, he quickly dropped onto the couch to try and prevent himself from fainting from the flustering...

ASTERIN SARGENT



”U
gh, please, no, have mercy” she pretended to be terrified, but she couldn’t help the laugh that got hold of her.

She left the stack of clothes near him so he could look through them and pick what he liked. It wasn’t a large selection, a couple of t-shirts. But she wasn’t giving up and checked a few more boxes, then returned victoriously with a pair of old turkish trousers she hasn’t worn in a while. ”These should fit you. In width at least, they’re elastic, but they’re also from a time after I’ve spent Christmas with my mom and ate everything that was available. They might be a little short, though” she said and laughed. Not her proudest moment, but hey, everyone needed a pair of fat pants, if only to remind them of darker times.

His next words snapped her to attention, especially his reaction made her realize and start to worry. She got flustered herself but tried to not let the tension rise to her head and keep a cool facade. She hadn’t intended for her flirting to be taken so seriously or cross a line. ”Good thing you know me better then” There, that should be cool enough. She sighed, but she still had a warm, tingly smile, still a little bit flustered.

”Well, uhm, I should go and do those errands, the sooner you get the medicine, the better” Escaping maneuvers engaged. She looked around, then brought the TV remote next to him, some water and whatever snacks were left around. ”You should be all set and I won’t be gone too long”

Watching the doctor try to talk her way around her flirtations was amusing to see, and the way she deflected straight into new conversations was somewhat admirable given the situation she was in. A weird man crashing on his couch, one with a gunshot, and making most of this up as it went on. And equally would probably be true for Asterin herself, minus the gunshot part.

Feeling his blood pressure come back to safer levels again, he let out a weak but content smile. He had noticed earlier, but he could actually start getting used to people fretting over him and caring for his well-being, if only to make him realize that there were still some people out there that cared for him existing.

As he saw Asterin make final preperations before she left, he did feel his mind slip back to sleep mode as the very idea of being awake was exhausting to him in this state. But as she lay down the remote next to him, his groggy mind decided that grabbing her hand was a smart thing to do.

”Maybe if I feel better, I should treat you to a nice dinner.” he smiled, slightly flustering on how cliché and cheesy it all sounded, both in thought and spoken word.

And like that, his eyes started tugging down to close the curtains. ”That’s what I promised mom, at least…” he blurted out without his mind even registering it anymore, him being completely KO from the exhaustion.
