Dionysus tried to listen to the other speaking in french. He had known french for some time unfortunately trying to understand french while drunk seemed impossible at the moment. Dionysus simple sighed and leaned back in the carriage. He heard Genesis tell him to follow. So Dionysus stumbled out the carriage and stood behind Genesis waiting for her to lead on.

Genesis slowly lead the way in order for the man to keep up, but hope her slow pace wasn't noticed to much as diddling. Moving through the large front doors, the two were consumed in an elegant circular entrance permitting the far wall to show the elliptical circular stair case the rose in such a column around the white washed room. Hanging from the center glowed and sparkled a circular crystal chandelier. Genesis was lucky this room was finally finished since there were still a few people lingering around the mansion in the absence of her parents to reconstruct the home to look more 'updated' but as Ariona put it 'absolument très beau'.

Her boots seemed to echo through the room against the black and white granite flooring as she lead the way towards one of the white doors to the left. Entering the guest parlor, Genesis was happy to see the heath was lite with a inviting warm vibrant flame as if it wished for company into the long hours of the evening. This room help a vibrant glow in the evening as soft greens accented each article of furniture. The main focus was not on the plentiful seats ranging from long sofas to love seats scattered about adorned by small tables for tea cups or accented with the fragrance of fresh flowers; but instead towards hearth where two tall backed horizontally white and green striped chairs sat comfortably at a distance apart with a small circular table adorned with a laced daisy topper holding a steeping tea pot with two cups, readily waiting to be poured.

"Please, have a seat while the room finishes preparing. Would you like tea, sir?" asked Genesis, gracefully taking a seat on the right leaving the left open, the sign only shown in kindness that a gentleman was always to be on the left. Feeling her training and posture move into place, Genesis gazed at the rippling flames whilst her delicate fingers folded on her lap missing the warmth of her gloves.

"n-oo I don't drink" Dionysus said as he pulled the chair out. He stepped forward almost falling over. Fortunately Dionysus used his momentum to fall back into the chair. He leaned back in the chair and just stared at the wall as the run spun around. Dionysus hated tea it reminded him of china. Dionysus diddn't like China one bit.

"So why did you come to this place?" Dionysus said looking over at Genesis. This was Dionysus's best attempt at a conversation. He asked that to everyone he met. Of course he diddn't expect an exciting awnser. Fortunately they would always reply with 'why are you here'. This was the question Dionysus used to spring his normal conversation. He loved to talk about himself.

Genesis understood his comment and hoped she could find something...non-alcoholic for him to divulge in. The silence around the room felt calming as she seemed to snuggle her back further into the warmth of the chair as the warm liquid quenched her thirst. The soft aroma of lavender relaxed her as she felt her weary body from a day's adventure ready to sleep. Tuning in to hear his question, she gave a soft smile.

"My parents thought it would be best for my education to live somewhere small where I would not have to deal with male distractions. We were starting to get too many visitors in New York, which my father did not like since he is a very serious business man. I apologize if I seem to sound vain, but it was the first time I ever had that sort of attention before and did not know how to handle the circumstances that came with it," she replied, her voice almost hushing to near the end as a crimson blush pulsed her delicate features. She remembered the gentleman well that had peaked her interest. Her father did not at all seem pleased and she almost resorted to sneaking out in order to see the young officer. Instead, she obeyed and listened to her parents which rewarded her with a small reward of seeing him twice a week. It had been blissful, until it was announced they were to move. The gentleman, not wanting to part ways without trying, had asked permission for her hand. Her father denied him, which left Genesis and her father on bad terms. The last she heard of the officer, he married so quickly once she was gone and it had not been even two months.

"What about yourself? What brought you here?" she questioned.

"Ah! your father is wrapped in the shiny metals of the earth like most men how very unenlightened I hope you are different" Dionysus said kindly as the room began to slow down alittle. Slowly but surely and almost in an instant Dionysus felt himself sobering up. He gazed at the beautiful mansion Genesis lived in and felt wrapped up in it's intrigute beauty. Why on earth would someone build something so great here.

"I came here..cause a man asked me to help his team find gold eventually though I asked them what they desire unfrotunately they all asked me for all the gold in the mine" Dionysus sighed and pointed at the ceiling. He then moved his hands together and then outward almost to simulate the explosion he had used to kill them all.

"They hadnt divided the gold up yet so I kept my word and they each got all the gold" Dionysus said laughing as he finished talking. Dionysus's laughs were loud and booming and echoed around the mansion.

Genesis was intrigued by his story and found herself smiling along with his laughter. She couldn't help but notice how he seemed to look brighter when he was laughing. It was something rare she had found since she moved here, it being dark and drab for so long.

"It seems you have been faced with the greed of others, and only used a tool for someone's own selfish desires," she said, almost talking to herself as her mood seemed to darken. It was hard for her imagine someone being used in such ways and almost made her regret being part of society. But how could she speak so much against it since she lived in splendor? It wasn't as if she asked for it, since she was adopted into it and blessed to be saved from doing the lowest work possible in order to survive. Silent for a moment, she looked up at the man with curiosity. "What is it you desire?"

"Well being made of earth has it's advantages I need no money for food, no water for thirst, no flesh for love that would just be painful I guess I just want to shake this fly trap" Dionysus said proudly. He noticed his left leg was shaking often a nervous habit of his. Fortunately he still clutched his wine bottle. Dionysus raised the bottle and took a careful sip. He was sure not to be come to intoxicated as before. Forutnately his intoxication only lasted a few hours before almost disappearing from his body. Another benefit from him being a statue. Dionysus tasted the dark red wine. He almost felt as if he was back in Greece. The bitter taste of red wine on the evening over looking a wheat field being worked by Persian slaves. The architecture of Genesis's house so delicate and intriquite must have spurred this memory.

Genesis's delicate features frown for a moment in thought as she pondered his answer. It was true, being a statue did mean there were things he wouldn't need. Basic needs like food, water, shelter...but what else could this man be missing? Genesis began to feel pity, thinking of how lonely it would be to be alone and for the benefit of granting ones wishes.

"It seems like a lonely journey...you are very strong to be able to do such a thing," she spoke softly, placing her emptied tea cup on the table and gazing into the flickering flames once more. The smell of the wine perked her interest, and almost reminded her of her parents. Where were they? When would they be back? Still, she hadn't received any letters from them.

"Been far and wide seen many people havent been lonely in a while everyone wants something" Dionysus said his still framed face seemed to show the pity he was feeling. In fact Dionysus's pitied people to the point where he hated them.
He shook his head his gray stone face reflected the light from the lamps.

"Socrates was strong I am a weak rock" Dionysus said coldly looking up at the ceiling. He seemed fixated on the ceiling as if that name seemed almost sacred to him. Asking questions he should be doing that. He would shake this fly trap till he was strong. He would do what he couldnt do before.

Genesis was silent in her time of contemplation. She could see the truth in how he spoke but found herself wondering why he had lost all his self confidence. Why was it he doubted himself? He was strong, not just because of the physical attributes but she could see the willful mind that intrigued her. This was a man she would rather not have as just an acquaintance, but instead a friend. Before she could speak some words of comfort, Darline noisily move into the room casting a frown.

"The room is ready," she spoke hastily in French, and waited patiently for Genesis to end all conversations. It felt less private with Darline in the room, especially since she tended to keep tabs on everyone in the house. That meant a letter would soon be surely sent to her mother explaining what had taken place here tonight. Feeling herself frown inwardly, Genesis just gave an obedient nod of her head. She would rather not disobey Darline since she seemed to remind Genesis where she truly came from. Something she would rather forget and move on.

"Please, follow Darline the room is prepared," said Genesis, quieter than before. The unhappiness swelled through her like a storm, darkening her eyes as she peered back to the fire place while her thoughts raced of today's events.

"You are strong, never think yourself weak or else you will be so," she blurted out softly.

[OOC: Sorry, visiting my parents for Spring Break. Also use Darline as you please smiley ]

Dionysus shook his head in disagreement. Genesis had no idea what good even was. Neither did Dionysus for that matter. He quickly stood up and followed Darline to his room. He diddnt speak Mr. Jones was drifting into his head. That poor boy needed to be saved he just felt something wrong in the air. Darline finnally reached the guest room. Dionysus stared at the guest room he strolled to the bed and just sat in it. Too many thoughts for sleep. Mr. Jone's safety seemed to be creeping into Dionysus's mind. Leaving Dionysus in a paralyzed sitting position on the bed till noon.

Genesis had sat there for what seemed like hours, pondering thoughts of bewilderment. Her conscious seemed to creep up on her as her brain caught up with her for her actions. Pressing her lips into a firm line, she continuously gazed at the fire ignoring Darline's French complaints and criticisms for being such a man into the house without consent from her parents along with annoyingly bantering on about how she was becoming closer to age to where she needed to take going out into town seriously for 'catching a husband', as she deemed to word it. The idea of 'catching' anyone seemed to prevail in the feeling of nausea swirling in the pit of her stomach.

Why would she want to do such a thing? Finally moving from the lounge she made her way up stairs, lingering on the staircase looking over the beautiful pictures and change of artwork as the house she once saw finally came to a complete end of changing. The last room to be finished, was the kitchen; to which she understood the maids loved the idea of how Ariona made sure things were comfortable and accessible to their own needs for working. Something else Ariona seemed to put into place was making sure each other maid's rooms were comfortable and designed how th wished, since they had signed a contract to work for this family.

Genesis thought that odd as well, knowing how Edmund's office was tightly locked at some of the servants that worked were creepy. There was only one that would work during day light while another few that would roam by night as if guarding something. Something precious, but she still wondered what. Of course the ideas of myths moved through her mind about the beauty and paleness of her parent's skin or how she never remembered seeing them eat. All the time they would drink, but would never let her taste it. Instead, once they were finished the cups would quickly be taken away or disappear all together.

Undressing, bathing, and crawling into bed with her long night gown, Genesis finally found rest. But, her mind didn't rest. Instead, she was dreaming where she was frantically running as if something was trying to catch her. It was dark, and she wasn't sure where she was going as she raced, tumbled, fell, and tried to escape. Screaming didn't help; it echoed around her as she clawed the dirt and struggled to get away.

'Wake up,' she yelled at herself, feeling something clutch onto her leg and pull her backwards. Kicking, she was pulled along the ground quickly as the light started to come toward her. If only she could see...and then she woke up.

Gasping for air, Genesis flew forward feeling a cold sweat consume her skin. She tingled, and quickly looked at her nails to see they were perfectly clean and checked to make sure she was still in bed. Peering through the blinds she saw the sun already rose and birds had stopped chirping giving her a sign it was at least mid-morning. Taking another bath, Genesis moved through the rituals of getting ready and primping for the day picking out a beautiful dark emerald silky gown adorned with black lace.

Moving down the stairs, she saw a weary Darline waiting at the bottom.

"Where is our guest?" asked Genesis, feeling her voice was rather rasp. Had she been screaming aloud and not just in her dream? Noticing Darline shook her head and never mentioned a word, Genesis found herself moving back up the stairs toward the guest room and giving a soft knocking, hoping she wasn't waking him.

Dioynsus's head shifted quickly to the door as he heard the faint knocking. No doubt Mr. Jones would have busted down the door and attempted to kill Dionysus. Unless perhaps Mr. Jones still needed his help. Dionysus shuddered at this thought he couldn't break the promise.

"Whose there" Dionysus said his voice seemed almost filled with fear as he stared at the door knob. Mr. Jones diddnt scare him not one bit the promise was the part he feared.

Genesis was unsure if she should answer, a shiver moved through her as her dream seemed to flash back at her for a moment.

"Genesis Marquis," she replied softly, hoping the door would give way so her words could flow toward his ears. "I am hoping you slept well and wondered if there was anything you wish to eat."

"Come in quickly" Dionysus said quickly as he quickly scrambled off the bed and stood in front of the door. He was sure Genesis wasn't a spy. Perhaps this was indeed the perfect trap. Dionysus nervously started pacing in the room as he waited for the door to open. He waved his arms like a mad man preacher as his mind attempted to reassure him she was to be trusted.
