❝ used to the darkness — meeting [09/05] . ❞
« on: September 05, 2020, 04:07:39 PM »
With arms tight across his chest, Eddie stood with his brows furrowed together as he observed each Flintlock member enter the room. As he had expected, there was little progress so far on tracking Aiden’s killer down. Was it true when said that there was always a calm before the storm? Whilst Eddie stood idly, he couldn’t help but wonder when the next storm was due in Flintlock. Disaster seemed inevitable.

freddie enjoyed the idea of getting to be a detective on the case. it wouldn't be the first time freddie went around flintlock casually accusing someone of crimes they didn't commit. it kept the lodge fresh and full of adventure around every corner once people started pointing fingers, quite honestly. besides, it was the first time someone had died and it wasn't freddie or any of his relatives - that he knew of. that was enough to keep the young man on his toes. he shifted around and made himself comfortable at a chair, lifting his feet up on some nearby furniture as he awaited the recent news.

I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me, about growing up and what a struggle it could be.
(( freddie is chaotic neutral and i love it wtaf ))

Brendan still doesn't know how to feel about the death of...uhm, whatever-her-name-is. He was gone when she was killed, off with Milo to worry about other things; he guesses to an extent he can blame himself on that. He didn't know her, not at all, but she was still a supposed presence in the lodge. One of the lodge's own was murdered, and surely that means there's a murderer running around right now? What if one of them got to Milo, the kids...or worse, the chickens?

Sheesh.

Glaring at anyone entering the room, Brendan huddles in a corner by himself, arms crossed. His staff leans against the wall next to him, and although it's almost always with him, he relaxes a little knowing its around now.

trigger warnings mentions of alcohol, blood, mentions of eating disorder, trauma, injuries, things you would expect a doctor to do.

"speech" 'thought' text
Meetings, Maisie had grown disenchanted with the meetings after a few of them... would they ever be lighthearted, wholesome? With good tidings... the amount of bad news that continued to be shared was, for lack of better words, exhausting. Maisie hated the idea that someone would willingly kill another human, it was... horrible to even think about.

And yet, someone had been murdered, and left behind people who she loved and cared about, and who loved and cared for her. Whomever the culprit was, she wanted to know why, and how, but mostly why. Why would someone do that to another human being? Another person who was struggling to make it out in this world just like everyone else? She sat quietly, hands folded in her lap, her usual upbeat countenance masked with her growing concerns.

joey holds the little bundle that is her daughter, necessarily close to her body, but it's an improvement. she had left the infant in her room, but apparently that's 'dangerous' and 'irresponsible'; according to maxine. funny, last time joey checked, she's the actual mother of the two, shouldn't max stay out of her business? and if it bothers her that much, joey has no problems with max taking the reins, she seems to want to anyway.
however, upon entering the lounge, the tension in the air makes her glad she has the buffer. she knows there's more to be said about the murder, so joey takes to acting like the loving new mom to avoid suspicion. she could sell it for a few minutes, right? so, she settles in a spot on the couch, front and center so everyone could see her. she swallows hard and tries to look down at her child with awe.

seb was, of course, mainly oblivious to the lingering tension that filled the hallways of the lodge. he picked up from it on time to time, but as he learned from a young age, being painfully unaware of things like this always seemed to work out better for him. why worry about things when you could focus on more light issues at hand? there was a skip in his step as he walked into the lodge after joey with max by his side, laughing at his own joke he tried to tell his sisters. before max could sit down beside joey, he was quick to squeeze his way ahead of her and sit there first, leaning back into the cushions as he began to try and talk their ears off more before the meeting started.
