1 The bonds of family on Thu Mar 19, 2015 8:40 pm

First topic message reminder :

Claire Redfield was sat at her desk, chewing on her pen as she stared at the faded photo in a battered frame. She had just gotten back from Rio on business and she had already thrown herself into another case. The photo she kept safe was taken such a long time ago, Sherry was still just a little girl in it, and Leon... Well he was no different. They had all been so happy when they made it out of Raccoon City, despite everything that had happened. It was years later and Claire still sometimes woke with nightmares of that place, and her time spent at Rockfort Island. She had barely spoken of it to Leon when she had made it home, but she figured Chris probably told him everything anyway. That was when she had drifted apart from the people she called family. They all seemed to have their mission and she had always just been 'Chris Redfield's baby sister'. Claire was much like her brother, in the aspect that she just wanted to help people. A shame Chris thought she was still that nineteen year old student. They still spoke on the phone often, had dinner together at the holidays, but pinning big brother down long enough for anything more seemed harder work than finding all traces of Umbrella and making them disappear for good. The young woman shook her head to try and clear the melancholy away, then pushed the dark red hair from her eyes. "Come on Claire..." She scolded herself, laughing quietly when she thought of the fun her friends had made in the past when she talked to herself.

Claire swivelled round in her chair so quickly she rather embarrassingly fell out of it. Wide sapphire eyes were peering up at Leon in the doorway from behind the waves of her red hair. "Why do you always catch me at my worst?" she asked with a tired smile as she picked herself up.

Wesker didn't quite know what to make of this treatment. No on had ever spoken to him, or touched him, the way Ramona was. He was like a wildcat unsure of the kindness shown him. "You agree that Redfield must die though?"

Leon laughed, squatting down so that he could peer into her eyes. "I don't think you have a worst, Claire Redfield." He breathed. Before,he could talk himself out of it, he grabbed her face and pressed his lips to hers. 

"Both of them." Ramona nodded. "In the most horrible way possible." She added, being completely truthful with him. "But not tonight. We will come up with a plan, Albert. You just...have to trust me...at least for now..." she breathed, her lips brushing his as she leaned in close. "We need to get out of here...I will not ask you again before I just shoot you."

Claire was completely taken off guard by the kiss. She was aware of nothing but the taste and feel of lips she had dreamt about for a long time. Not even the sound of her boss, Neil, clearing his throat loudly and asking what was going on.

"Sounds like you have issues with a Redfield all of your own." Wesker commented, sliding an arm around Ramona and kissing her before she could protest. He would later blame that action on the serum.

Leon heard Neil and stepped back, rubbing  at his neck sheepishly. "Sorry. I was just taking Claire to dinner..." he told the other man, glancing at her to confirm that it was truly what she wanted to do.

Ramona didn't put much more thought into it. She knew how Wesker felt about her. Gently, she placed a pair of his dark glasses back onto his face and then slid a syringe with the last of the correct dose into his neck, all while still kissing him. A pair of soldiers were there to catch him as he lost control of himself and dragged him to the plane. 
The next time he would wake he would be back in Ramona's home, the young woman sleeping in a chair next to his bed.

Claire was blushing as she tried to smooth her hair down. "That's right. Sorry, I guess I should've shut my door, huh?" She added with a smirk.
Neil wasn't smiling, he seemed to have taken an instant dislike to Leon. "Take out outside, you're not even supposed to be working today, Claire."

Wesker's initial reaction as he woke was to reach for the gun he always kept on the nightstand. It was a strange room and he didn't like it.

"We were just leaving." Leon said, noting that Niel had his fingers in his pocket. He took Claire's hand and led her with him into the hall. "Who is he calling?" He asked her.

Ramona's cellphone rang loudly and she jumped, slang her hand down on it the moment that Wesker reached for what he thought was his gun.

"I don't know." Claire confessed softly, her fingers still holding Leon's. "He's never usually like that..." She murmured, casting a backwards glance over her shoulder.

It was the smell that got Wesker more than anything. Feminine... Not flowers, but definitely not what he was used to.

Neil had the phone pressed to his ear as he looked over Claire's desk. He looked anxious. 
Leon frowned at his actions, pulling her with him to his truck. "We're you doing something illegal?" He teased. "Stealing money? Looking at porn?" 

Ramona gently removed Wesker's hand, noting the way he seemed to be testing the air for her. She wondered what that meant. "Talk to me, Neil." She said as she answered, not quite prepared for what that other man was going to say. "No worries. She'll never find anything
 And besides, kissing Kennedy? She's as good as useless now...I'm sure..." she laughed. "Lock up and head home...I appreciate the offer but I'm busy with..a client. "

Claire smiled sweetly, keeping close to Leon as it was still raining outside. "I can't do both?" She asked, still barely able to believe Leon had just walked into her office and kissed her.

Wesker could hear the male voice on the other end of the line, and was frowning. "Why are you so concerned with the useless Redfield? It's Chris you should be looking for!" He insisted loudly.

"You're as bad as your brother." Leon laughed, bumping her with his hip. "I hope it was at least good porn. Something that looked like me?"

Ramona placed her hand over Wesker's mouth frowning at him. "Where were you thinking about going for dinner, Neil? I am kind of hungry on second thought...No. The client could care less. He has no interest in me."

161 Re: The bonds of family on Sat Mar 28, 2015 6:15 pm

Claire didn't answer that, she just smirked at Leon before getting in his car. Things did seem to be looking up she thought, wondering where Leon's sudden affection had come from though. "Sherry called you after I left, didn't she?"

"There's a nice greek place I know, I think you'd would like it." Neil replied, though it was obvious he was smiling. "Come on, Ramona... Don't make me beg."

162 Re: The bonds of family on Sat Mar 28, 2015 6:50 pm

"I tried to call her but she wouldn't answer me." Leon sighed, his smile fading ever so slightly. "Whatever you said upset her. Or maybe she was just thinking about her own parents." 

Ramona glanced at Wesker surprised to find him glaring at her. She offered him a warm smile. "You know I've never had Greek. That sounds good. See you in ten minutes."

163 Re: The bonds of family on Sat Mar 28, 2015 6:52 pm

Claire's own smiled faded too and she simply stared out the window. She had been hurting this afternoon, more than she had thought she could. She took it out on Sherry and now it was all she could think about.

Wesker openly snarled at Ramona as the call ended. "That was the brown nosing low life from TerraSave, wasn't it?" He asked thinly, not sure why he even cared.

"I'm sorry I ruined the day for you. It went a lot differently in my head."Leon admitted. "It was supposed to end with romance." 

"Nothing wrong with that." Ramona said, stepping back to stretch and yawn. "I've been holed up here with you and your snores for days. It will be nice to get out. Admit it, now that you're awake being with me is probably the last thing on your mind."

"There was a plan?" Claire breathed, having been so caught up in her own business that she never even asked why Leon was wearing that suit in the first place.

"Precisely." Wesker remarked coolly. "I can hear you breathe even while I'm sleeping."

166 Re: The bonds of family on Sat Mar 28, 2015 7:51 pm

Leon shrugged as he started the truck,  there was no point in telling her now the day was well past them. "Where would you like to have dinner?  I'm game for anything." 

Ramona placed Wesker's dark glasses on his nose and smiled at her reflection. "That's right." She purred. "I moan like a whore."

167 Re: The bonds of family on Sat Mar 28, 2015 8:04 pm

Leon's response only served to make Claire feel even worse. She had hidden her secret for so long that it was now a task to simply be around people who had once known her. If Leon gave her bag even a quick shake, it would rattle with all the prescription medication she was on to help her continue hiding her secret depression. "I don't mind. You chose." She breathed.

"You would need to actually let a man near you to even know what that sounds like." Wesker sneered.

"How about steak? I haven't had one in a long time and I want to eat something big and juicy." Leon grinned at her. "then I've got something I want to talk to you about."

"My aren't you a bundle of joy." Ramona laughed pressing her lips to his. "Get back in bed, Albert. You're not at full strength yet. I'll bring you something back. You want a burger?"

169 Re: The bonds of family on Sat Mar 28, 2015 8:40 pm

Claire's stomach suddenly began to turn over. She already had herself convinced it was bad news. It was always bad news. "Sure." She replied when she realised she hadn't said anything in a few painfully long moments. "And maybe some cheesecake?" She added, once more trying to put on her brave face.

Wesker looked like Ramona had just offered him something most disgusting. "I hardly think so. Go, have your little date, princess."

170 Re: The bonds of family on Sat Mar 28, 2015 9:21 pm

"Cheesecake?" Leon laughed. "You're just going to have to marry me. That's all there is to it. You and I think too much alike for anything else."

Undaunted as ever, Ramona nodded. "A steak then. I have no intention of letting him take me somewhere cheap like a Greek restaurant. You yourself know how high maintenance I can be." She patted his stomach and turned to leave. "Back to bed, Albert. Right now you might as well be human. You're  not going anywhere."

Claire smiled sheepishly when Leon declared this. "Maybe I rubbed off on you..." She mused.

"The greeks gave us democracy... and running for the hell of it." Wesker replied, hating how pathetically human he felt right then. "By all means... Let him take you to eat slaughtered cow flesh instead."

172 Re: The bonds of family on Sat Mar 28, 2015 9:47 pm

"Let's hope. Your luck is a lot better than mine and you're prettier too." Leon told her, resting his arm on the headrest behind her. "What if I'm not kidding about marriage and that's what I want to talk to you about?" He asked as he backed out of the space. "What would you say?"

Ramona left Wesker standing there, picking out a smart looking suit from her closet. She went into another room to change and returned to brush her hair. "the Africa thing isn't as bad as you thought. As long as I can keep people from digging...Tricell may even recover. No thanks to your big breasted girlfriend. There is some good news though...your clone managed to put a tracking chip in Chris. We know where he is at all times." Ramona told him, not sure he even cared to listen.

Claire was watching Leon with a rather comically open mouth. She almost wanted to ask him to pinch her, as this seemed a little too surreal. "I'd say are you sure you should be driving after clearly having drank so much." She finally commented with a smirk. 

"They were real, in case you were comparing yourself." Wesker snorted, acting like he wasn't watching Ramona's every move. "Where is Redfield now then?"

174 Re: The bonds of family on Sat Mar 28, 2015 10:07 pm

"So...that's a no?" Leon was used to the Redfield's comical way of handling a problem. Or not handling it. He was more than a little certain this was her way of rejecting him. 

Ramona pulled out her phone and smiled. "Here in town actually. Looks like he's at that steak place I plan to go." she lifted her head and frowned at him. "Hers were as real as the pink elephants you were yelling about yesterday."

Claire wasn't smiling anymore, in fact, she could feel her eyes begin to burn with unshed tears. "You can't just roll back into my life after all this time and drop this bombshell on me!" She insisted, throwing open the passenger door."

"He won't be alone, I seriously doubt he will be letting his precious partner out of his sight any time soon." Wesker snorted. "And how would you know about her breasts anyway? Been paying close attention, princess?"

"Claire..." Leon grabbed her arm. "It was a joke. And you know it. Come on. It's just dinner. The gentleman is supposed to open the door. " he added gently.

"My company account paid for them. It was hard to miss." Ramona snorted. She put on her glasses and took out a cell phone from her purse. "My number is programed in. Call if you need me...anything...I mean..." she corrected, holding it out to him.

Claire still wasn't smiling. It didn't feel like a joke, all it did was make her feel like an idiot. It was clear from the look in her eyes that she was still prepared to bolt at any moment.

"You think I need that to reach you?" Wesker mused, making a show of giving her the once over.

178 Re: The bonds of family on Sat Mar 28, 2015 10:44 pm

Leon didn't say anything else. Claire would find herself in for a big surprise when she got to the table. Her brother, and Jill were sitting there as if they had been there waiting for her for years.

"Yeah. Good point." Ramona muttered, reaching out to take the phone back. "You're awake now. You can handle yourself."

179 Re: The bonds of family on Sat Mar 28, 2015 10:52 pm

"You sure Leon is even coming?" Jill asked Chris as they waited. She was nervously running her finger around the rim of her wine glass, feeling somewhat self conscious. The blonde was wearing a high necked dress to mask the scars Wesker's device had left her with.

"Amongst other... things." Wesker replied, laying down to simply watch Ramona. He knew how unnerving it probably was.

"You know Leon, he has to talk her to death first." Chris teased. "he gets all flustered and rambles. We should have seen a movie first. Want me to order another appatizer?"

Ramona simply stared back at him, blinking her bright green eyes. "You need a shower for one thing." She snorted. "you smell as dead as you should be. stay out of trouble, Albert. And try to be good for the baby sitter." She added turning to leave when she heard the car horn from the drive way.
