Part 11: Sins of the Fathers 11: Giggity, Giggity, Giggity!Part 11: Giggity, Giggity, Giggity!
Ok, so when we left off last time, Sam was the biggest butthead, and was going to make us a copy of the old ladys snake bracelet. So where do we go next? Why, the cemetery of course! Because why?
Because this game is about to get sexy.
Mr. Knight! What are you doing here?
Uh, my familys tomb is here.
I noticed. Subtle.
Well, Mr. Knight, if theres nothing else
(Little handsy, arent we there, Gabe?)
I cant stop thinking about you. Ive been in your thoughts, too. I can see it in your eyes.
Mr. Knight, you dont know anything about me. Im not in a position to get involved
Ive said that a million times myself, but this is different. I think we both know we cant fight it. <groan> I cant believe Im saying this!
I have so many obligations. My family is very traditional. You wouldnt understand.
Hey, I love tradition! Ive seen Fiddler on the Roof a hundred times!
( Smooooth, Gabriel; Youve gone from sounding like a stalker to a complete cornball.)
This isnt a musical, Mr. Knight. We live in different worlds!
Look, I know youve got more money than God. Do you think I care? Do you think thats why Im saying this?
No. I dont.
Why dont you come SEE my world? I have a little book shop, St. Georges on Bourbon
Im sorry, but theres no place for someone like you in my life Not now, not ever!
With that, Malia runs off.
Ok, Gabriel, I hate to break it to you, but, you have exactly zero game with the ladies. I think you had a better chance with Madame Cazanoux than you ever had of making it with-
Ok, I officially know fuck-all about women.
Yep, Gabriel gets lucky, and in the morning Grace does her best to ignore Gabriel .
Um. The fuck? Am I hallucinating or do you all see that too?
Youre not speaking to me this morning?
Dont be silly. I just have nothing to say.
Did you find out anything about that pattern I gave you?
Yeah. I did find something. I checked the micro-fiche at the public library. I found an article about a murder in 1810. The newspaper published part of a pattern found around the body. It looks damn close.
Youre incredible. All that work
Have it your way.
And that guy hasnt moved at all. Um. Okay.
Have you noticed this guy outside the shop?
Yeah, he gives me the creeps. I wish hed go away.
Im right there with you, Grace. So, uh, whats in the paper today?
I dont believe this! Theyve closed the case!
Oh, Lord. Gee, Grace, I dont know, maybe the case thats been absolutely DOMINATING EVERY FACET OF YOUR BOSSS LIFE FOR THE PAST MONTH OR SO, THAT CASE?! To sum up the rest of their conversation, apparently the cops are saying that the murders were part of an underworld cartel war. Gabriel thinks its bullshit, and Grace advises him to talk to Mosely about it.
Gabriel, some days you can be extremely thick. Anyway, Grace has no messages for Gabriel today, so on to Mosely I guess. But first, I think Sam has something for us. (Naturally, Gabriel does nothing about the creepy guy.
Oh, and if you were wondering why Markus was so pissed off at Sam beating him at chess
Yyyyeah, I can see being a little pissed about the situation. On to Mosely! Bottom line is that the department is convinced that the local gang was involved in a turfwar with the Chicago mob and used the Voodoo angle to cover it up, with unofficial department policy being Let the Slime Kill Each Other. Tee-riffic. Gabriel asks Mosely to get the case reopened, and Mosely responds with the following objectives:
Prove that theres a legitimate Voodoo cult in New Orleans, prove that theyre a threat, and get me a lead on the cult.
With that, well wrap it up tonight and NEXT TIME: Legitimate developments as the game heats up!
