Law Firm/Roger and Elle



ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She stood in the foyer of the building, as the receptionist tapped in her name. She wore a fitted suit with heels at least 7 inches high. Her hair was simply brushed and washed and she wore a minimal amount of makeup, except for the ruby red lipstick.

Roger Norwood
Similarly, Roger wore a dark blue fitting suit with a classic white shirt and silver tie. His hair was neatly combed to the side and he had some glasses on to look older. He went to grab Elle's hand for emotional support, hoping she would reciprocate. "I know virtually nothing about this. Please help me?" He pleased between mutters, as his eyes silently begged for help.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
Her body froze at the touch and she struggled to look at him, not use to being leant on for emotional support, "you'll practically relaxing in a chair with me beside you," she replied.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
Roger nodded, trying to make himself believe that. He nodded and breathed in and out several times.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"And this is the least dangerous part , I mean really, are you having a panic attack?" She asked glancing up at him, "you were fine doing all of the other stuff and you're panicking over this,"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"I guess it's the fact that I'm a perfectionist. Fighting can't be possibly perfect, as you depend on what your opponent does. This, however, can be perfect. So I'm just afraid that I won't be."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Nothing's perfect," she said finally, "no matter how much you want it to be."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"That's because you say it. When it comes to you and your abilities, you get as close as it gets to perfect," he blushed, but really did mean what he said.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"No, i'm not perfect, I'm just better than everyone. Does not mean I'm perfect," she rebutted, "but thanks for acknowledging it," she said as the receptionist pushed forward two I.Ds


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He took one, "That is sort of saying what I just said. If you're better than everyone else, then you are closer to perfect than everyone else," he chuckled.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"But I'm not perfect," she replied as she headed towards the elevator, "so, really, it's pointless for you to be a perfectionist. All it does is damage your health."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"That would be changing who I am. That would be changing my personality. I can't do that."


OOC: dangit. I was gonna make a reference to the other RP where he told her to change but then noticed that happened after this XD

OOC: Lololol 


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Everyone can perfect their personality," she said, "look at me, my personality is perfect, it's really just my body that keeps me from not being perfect."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He laughed "What is that supposed to mean? You are a very pretty young woman."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She opened her mouth to say something then closed it as they brushed into an office. A guy around thirty years old walked up to them with an open hand.

"Hey there!" he said with a grin, "you must be the two new lawyers, welcome!"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Yes. Étienne Bordeaux," he shook the man's hand, "And my partner here, Ms..."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Anastasia Black," she said with a smile, "now...our office is this one?"

The first case had passed by without fail. Elle had been defense and had won without a doubt. The second case was about a man. He was accused of kidnapping the latest child. The two were currently sitting in Elle's office regarding the files.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Well, it does seem like this job fits you perfectly."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Of course it does," she said, "this one, though, is what we're looking for."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Yeah but what if this guy wasn't the one that kidnapped the last kid? It wouldn't be of any help."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She raised an eyebrow at him, "of course he's not the one who kidnapped the kid," she said, "but he might have been involved or close by for the police to think he is."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Now look at it the other way around," he practically ignored her, although he did pay attention to her, "What if he is the one who kidnapped the child. Wouldn't we be in great danger?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Sure, we could be," she said, "but I think that's unlikely. Very unlikely."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"I hope. I am terrified, Elle. What would we do then?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"We're surrounded by people, Roger, if he is able to get a finger on us without either of us smashing his fingers in then they'll be able to get him off."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He nodded, "Of course. You're right, you're right. I'm overreacting." He and regained his composure. "We're gonna kill this, trust me," he offered her a now confident smile.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She nodded back as she settled back into the chair, "of course we will."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Hey so, uh, I have a question. A REAL one so try not to laugh?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I never laugh at people seeking knowledge and every question is a real one," she replied with a wave of her hand, flicking through the folder.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"How are you always so confident about yourself? And your abilities? I guess I just can't always find myself reliable, although in the end, I always turnout to be so."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She was torn. Should she reveal how she really wasn't that confident and, in all honesty, rather believed that she will lead them all to their death. Or keep that facade, that she was so good at, up. She, being nothing except stubborn, decided to go for the latter. "It's not really a how, it's just who I am. I have a goal in mind and a one track mind. My mind doesn't allow me to find distractions, like insecurities." She didn't know how to answer the question, or if what she said pleased him. It was one of those things she did without thinking about it.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He nodded out of compromise, although he couldn't quite grasp the concept of what she'd said. It seemed almost too easy and hard at the same time. Like it depended on everyone's way of interacting. Still, he thanked her with a grateful and charming smile and a courteous nod.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Being confident is who I am, it's like asking how I walk. I know how to do it without thinking about it," she explained further before waving her hand, "and anyway, no one can be like me and I cannot be like anyone else."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He laughed along, "I think everybody knew that beforehand. You're rather, uh, special that way."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She looked at him in amusement, "special?" She asked, " I suppose so," she replied. "Anyway," she said, emphasising the change of subject. Analysing her personality was not something she liked doing. "It says that he was hanging around the building for a few hours. A child disappeared from the building and footage showed him running away around the time the child was said to disappear."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He yawned, taking in the information, "What if someone framed him? As in, what if someone made him run while the child disappeared so that it'd look suspicious. Aye, wouldn't that be a smart move to do from their part?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I don't think the cult particularly cares what the human's think," she thought out loud, "Might have been there at the wrong time or the wrong place."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Maybe they don't care now, but if the cult is found out about, even if nothing about their existence makes sense to humans, they could still be thrown to jail for kidnapping children."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She gave him an "are you serious" look, "if they found out about the cult, they'd be dead. They don't have the power to defeat them. We don't even know if we can."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He shrugged, "Nothing is impossible. Even for humans. Some of them can be pretty smart cookies. "


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"You underestimate the cult if you believe the human's can overthrow them, we barely survived and we have some power," she snapped, "this is what Liam was having a go at all of you. You underestimate them. You overestimate the humans, too, as smart doesn't equate to power."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He sighed, "I know. I'm just trying to remain positive."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"There's a fine line between wishful thinking and positivity," she snapped before pushing out of her chair, "come on, I want to interrogate the guy."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He laughed nervously, before gesturing her to go on, "Be my guest, Eleanor. Or should I say, Mrs. Black?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She wagged her index finger at him, "I'm not married...unless you're offering," she said with a wink before brushing into the hall.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Honestly, keeping in mind the fact that you're all so dressed up and that your work is so professional, you could legitimately come off as a Mrs."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Are you saying I look old?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He laughed heartily at this, "Not at all. I'm saying you look versatile. I'm saying that you could potentially be anyone you want to be."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Thanks," she said as she moved down to a car.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"So. Where is this guy now? In the police station?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Yep," she said with a nod, "wasn't allowed bail."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Ah. Will be able to see Julian then?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She shrugged slightly, "who knows, maybe."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"What are we supposed to ask him? I've never been at an interrogation."



ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"It amazes me that you think I have," she said with a snort, "well, to be fair, I have been at a couple. Just not uh legal ones," she added on before coughing slightly, "we just ask what he knows."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He giggled slightly, "Well, I was definitely thinking of that before, but what assures us that he will spill anything at all?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Because he's innocent," she replied, "except for being there at the wrong place and the wrong time. We're his only chance of getting free. He'd be an idiot not to reveal to us what he knows."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Some people are idiots. Not all though. Let's hope he's smart."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"True," she said, "though the majority of the world are idiots so lets not have too much of an expectation."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He laughed genuinely at this, "I guess not."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She exited the building and into a car.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He followed after her.
