Trickster

The bell around her throat chimed angelically as she tilted her head back and to the side, resting her head on her shoulder. Her damp hair clung to the side of her face as she gazed at him where he sat on the other side of the room. He felt numinous looking at someone like her.
"So," she questioned, "what game are we playing this time?"

"Got the club feeling like a safe house."

 

"CORA," a deep voice called, "are you ready or not?" The owner of the voice adjusted his tie, foot tapping against the marble tiles as he went to check his watch. The two of them would run late for the party if she wouldn't hurry up. She always did this some how, testing his patience, making things harder. His eyes snapped upward when he heard the chime of a bell, followed by the click of heels.

"You're always so impatient father," her hand found it's way to his arm as they walked outside of the house, "When will you finally relax?"

"I'll relax when you finally get old enough to stand up on your own."

"I'm standing now, aren't I?"

"You know what I mean, Cora." Her father was the owner a large and well known business. Min Cora was the successor, being an only child although the board would rather a male leader that would play his cards right. What he was trying to protect her daughter from were the people who would for sure try and take her down. They would take her money, her house, her name,her life and strength. He didn't want that for his daughter. Not while he was still living.

The car ride to the party was long, the bell that sat on Cora's choker sang out every once in a while when she turned her head. Her father checked his watch out of habit when the car finally stopped. "The Min family," A tall woman stood by the door, "Welcome." She had long black hair that laid over one shoulder, her dress was white and strapless, a slit exposing a long leg. Cora nodded her hello, offering a smile the woman returned. Cora assumed the woman was the hostess of this event, seeing as she was the only one greeting people by the door.

"I hope you enjoy your time."
