"You know, I wonder how long that painting as been there" Dorin Muttered one day while the team of bartenders were cleaning the bar that night. The painting in question was a mahogany framed picture with a back shot of a woman with long red hair while a black tail curved back towards her head.
Luke jumped over the bar and looked closer at the painting, "Who is it any way?" He looked around the painting and tried finding if it was labeled. "Dinn!" The neko looked back on shelmek who jumped and dropped another glass, which was saved by Dorin who placed it back on the shelve. "Kriss signed it, Go ask who and when this was painted". Dorin scowled.
"The vampire painted it?"
"yeah, you didn't notice Kriss' signature on it?" Luke scowled back. "Dinn, Go get Kriss!". The reptilian man didn't need to fetch the vampire though for he walked into the bar in his cat form and jumped onto the bar, sitting with his tail curled around his legs.
"Did someone call me?" The vampire asked, The Three looked at him a little thrown off that he could talk in his cat form. Luke ran over and stuck his face in Kriss'
"Kriss, you painted that picture right?" he pointed to the painting.
"Yes, what of it?" Krisstoph started licking his paw, with a bored look.
"Who is it and when was it painted?" Luke asked.
"I painted it around 1615, for who it is-- I would think that would be obvious" The feline formed Kriss stood up and jumped onto one of the bar stools and transformed back into his normal form, Although his transformations were never all that good and his shirts always seemed to vanish.... this time was no different either. He leaned back onto the bar. "hopefully Lucas isn-"
At that moment, Lucas came walking in with Ruin, He was talking loudly about decorations. "Maybe we could Really Go over it with this steam punk theme- Like cogs in the walls and steam, God I don't even know what I should do for my outfit!"
"Lucas, I don't think Kriss would appreciate if you shoved metal cogs through the walls"
"I wouldn't" Kriss growled, Both managers stopped and looked at the vampire. "What?"
"Where's your shirt?" Ruin asked. Kriss gave a half-assed shrug.
"I know what it is, its a pre-handfasting present" Lucas purred. " Thank you darling, I do appreciate you going shirtless for my happiness".
"Oh god don't get husband hormones now, I'm helping you plan this Lucas but I'm not dealing with your slut side" Ruin growled, both had stopped in front of the painting, looking at Kriss who had gone into his disgruntled silence. There was a group gasp from Luke, Dorin and Dinn.
"OH MY GOD" Dinn screamed pointing at Lucas and the painting. "ITS HIM!"
"What?" Lucas blinked.
"The painting, Lucas" Kriss muttered. The incubus aha'd and ran a hand through his hair.
"I should grow out my hair again for the handfasting shouldn't I?" He murmured, looking back at the picture. "You liked it better- and it would be easier to put up-- Oh dear I need to talk to you about decorations-- Would you mind being painted gold?"
"No. I will NOT be painted gold"
"Its a wedding Lucas, You can't paint your groom gold" Ruin scowled.
"IT.IS.NOT.A.WEDDING" Kriss hissed, automatically pissed off. Everyone looked at him with a straight face.
"Its a Wedding." Ruin muttered.
"I hate all of you." Kriss growled and transformed and scampered off.
