A new club in London, and Holmes didn't often commit himself instantly but he knew the rich, reliable owner....
It was orient themed, all silks and oranges, reds, and black.
It was simply a rectangular room, sofas and chairs by little tables near the entrance, then at the very back either side of the lift, there were those magnificent dancers whom twine themselves in long pieces of silk, spinning impossibly. Women walked around with hot sake and there was a small bar mid-way to the right. Mind you, you had to pick a side as in the middle of the room going almost entirely from the front to back was an aquarium filled with tropical fish and one eel.
The eldest Holmes could see how they had crushed in Thai, Japanese, and Chinese designs and themes all in one malformed Asain club.
Not that many, if any, of the customers would notice, or care.
The lift took you to the upper levels for rooms, or downstairs for those searching for the more.......*cough* assertive escorts.
Also, many of the women here specialised in styles from the East.





(Notes: This is pre-Koren, and....*cough* well...........all I can say is enter Miss Adler stage left. :XD: )
  • Mood: Bemused
  • Listening to: Some sort of Mandarin music
  • Watching: Other men in suits smirking too much...
  • Drinking: Rather nice sake

Irene sat at the little bar, clad in her-rather expensive-red and black silk kimono with gold, threaded foliage across the sleeves and a gold dragon emblazoned on the back. It didn't fall much further than the top of her knees and wasn't exactly the best at keeping her decency. On her feet were flat, wicker sandals and her hair was tied loosely in a bun with a hair-tie sporting a lotus flower. A few strands of hair fell down the back of her neck and the sides of her face.
She took a sip of her sake with a smile. In her mind she prayed for some way to pass the time. Something interesting, and perhaps a bit crazy. That would be nice.

((Question! You say this is 'pre-koren'. Does that mean that it's a bit far back in the past? Do Irene and Mycroft know each other?))

(Good point......should it be a Mycroft's whose reputation is rather quiet so far and has only heard small threads of information upon Adler? Beyond her advertising I have no doubt he wouldn't tread further than that as she weaves a complex web involving co-workers etc)

Mycroft wandered to and fro, spoke to a few familiar faces and watched the dancers for awhile.
There were a few main players in the room........one whom even the idiots were eyeing was that woman in the corner. Expensive clothes, immaculately groomed and very alluring.
No harm in introducing oneself.
"Here for pleasure, or are you one of the star attractions?" It was part-cheesy, but also completely honest. She was different from the other workers here and oozed confidence.

((That sounds good :)))

Irene took a sip of her sake before answering.
"I'm not sure which of those questions I find more offensive," she said, calmly, staring blankly into space. "I like the atmosphere, is all. Only here to pass the time."

( :aww: )

Mycroft observed her.... a woman who came here for the atmosphere...she would probably pick some-one up if she felt like it....so calm. "Considering that you are in a brothel and your..." He allowed his eyes to flick down, not leering, but just as calm. "-beautiful clothing, you should know no offense was meant." The first couple of the evening headed to the lift and disappeared.

Irene smiled slightly, continuing to stare at the wall. Again, she took a long sip of her drink before replying, as if leaving this man in some form of suspense.
"Is it a brothel? I hadn't noticed," she said, sarcastically. "May I ask why you are here? You look like a respectable gentleman. Not the kind that would be wondering around in a place of sin like this."

Mycroft laughed, trying to work out if that was just a really clumsy pass but some-thing about her that made him think that that was below her.
"Most people seem respectable but most, quite simply, aren't." Holmes smiled at her, that oil-on-water expression that washed over him and then faded.

Irene smiled and turned to look at the man. She held out her hand.
"Irene Adler."
Reply
:iconmycroft-holmes-rp:
Recognition sparkled in his eyes.
"Mycroft Holmes." He took it and bowed to kiss the back of it before straightening up with a smirk.
