"Come on what could possibly be that stupid?" Marcello said glancing out of the car briefly.

IC:
Claes was silent for a moment, glancing furtively in the direction of the white FIAT.

"Umm... it's just that... I've always wanted to ride a scooter like Priscilla's. I don't think I'd be any good at actually piloting the thing..." Claes said, trailing off.

Triela would probably be a natural at it, though...

"You don't need to worry about acting so mature," Marcello said with a smile. "Even adults don't do a good job of it some times. Thought wether that's a good thing, or not is a different story all together. I'll mention it to Priscilla in the morning. I'm sure she would love to give you a ride." He paused glancing at her. "that, and it's driven, not piloted."

IC:
Claes' face underwent a minor transformation at that moment. She couldn't contain it. In place of the downcast features Marcello was used to seeing, there was a small, shy smile.

"R... really?" Claes blurted as it dawned on her that in all her time at the agency, she never actually asked for any of the silly little things she wanted.

The door to the service station openned, and 'Illaria' walked back out to the FIAT and got in. A moment later, the hatchback's engine started and it began to pull back into the street.

Marcello slipped his cellphone back into his pocket as the FIAT went by. "Yes. Drive is in fact the word your looking for." he declared with a wink as he brought the car back into traffic.

The white FIAT continued steadily down the main road for a considerable length of time before finally turning down a side street. The driver didn't seem to be aware of the fact that they were being tailed, but the less busy side street would make things more obvious...

Marcello waited as long as he dared before turning onto the small road. Before he did however he was careful to turn off his lights again. A silent pray didn't hurt any either.

The FIAT continued down a few side streets before pulling over next to a public park. A few moments later the driver got out and began to walk down one of the paths leading into the park grounds.

Marcello found another spot further down the road to park the car in. He spent a maybe a minute looking at the car anxiously in the side view mirror. Then he opened his mouth, only to shut it again promptly. He let his fingers drum out on the steering wheel for a few more seconds, before turning to Claes. "Alright well time for some more leg work looks like. Lets go" He said getting out of the car. He moved quickly to the trunk of the car. He opened it to reveal the two black bags contained inside. In short order he removed a small black rectangular box from one.

Trunk closed he was quickly standing by the white FIAT. "Your smaller so I'm going to ask you to do this one." He said turning to Claes holding out the black box. "Get under the car, peel this off, and stick it some where it wont be easily seen. Okay?"

Claes followed Marcello out of the car (well, sort of. She used her own door) and around to the trunk.

"Your smaller so I'm going to ask you to do this one." He said turning to Claes holding out the black box. "Get under the car, peel this off, and stick it some where it wont be easily seen. Okay?"

"Uh... okay," she said, taking the offered box.

Claes hesitated, looking at the car uncertainly.

IC:
Several indignant retorts worked their way into Claes' mind, but she swallowed them all. Audibly.

In place of sarcasm, Claes simply nodded and got down on the ground. She slid underneath the FIAT as much as possible and felt around underneath it, discovering that it had a lot more open spaces than she would've initially guessed. Finding some sort of shelf toward the engine compartment (OOC: transaxle {assuming it's some sort of FWD hatchback, here} linkage tunnel, but she doesn't know that), Claes removed the strip Marcello had indicated and stuck the box up on the 'shelf'.

She slid back out, practically covered in grease and road grime.

IC: Marcello frowned at the young girl in front of him. He raised an eyebrow at the Claes, "Didn't leave any grease down there did you?" he said beckoning Claes. He moved quickly back to their car, and popped the trunk. From his bag he pulled out a towel. It was surprising how often towels could come in handy. As a result he always kept one in his go bag. Always keep a towel at hand. It was a good rule...

He tossed the towel at Claes. "Hurry up, we don't want to lose them," He said.

OOC: practically covered, you just love playing dirty, don't you. Razz

OOC: Evil
What did you expect, having her crawl under a car parked on the side of the road?
Also, Hitchhiker's Guide FTW! AWESOME


IC:
"Didn't leave any grease down there did you?"
"I... what?" Claes said, puzzled, as she followed Marcello to the car.

He tossed the towel at Claes. "Hurry up, we don't want to lose them," He said.
Claes caught the towel... and his reasoning dawned on her. She looked down at herself and gasped in dismay.

Who knew it was so filthy under there?!

Claes began wiping the grease and dirt off of herself the best she could... and she succeeded in getting most of the surface dirt (read:chunks) off, but it left her skin and clothing streaked and smeared with the oily black substance that collects under nearly all regularly driven cars.

"...I, I don't think this is going to come off!" Claes said. She was scrubbing her arm until it hurt, but it only seemed to turn her skin (and the towel) black.

My god, I hope this isn't permanent!

Claes looked up at Marcello, a look of helpless apology on her grease-streaked face.

OOC:
...even though I was the one who just typed that, it made me wanna comfort the poor girl, let her know it's not permanent (I've actually had to explain that one to a young woman who had to change a tire on the side of the road)... and give her some pumice soap.

IC: Marcello sighed. Streaked with grease as she was Claes was now 'wonderfully' less common place. If their target spotted them now, their would be questions, to say the least. She could stay behind. Of course there was no way he could listen in to a conversation like she could. Ah what the hell she had already seen them once tonight, if she saw them again the game was up anyway.

"I guess you'll need a shower later then. Sorry about that," He said with a shrug as he took the towel back. "Well look at the bright side, you'll be hard to see in the dark. Now come on we can't afford to lose her." Marcello declared throwing the towel back into the car, and setting off.

IC:
Claes muttered something that sounded noncommittal in response to Marcello's apology and, lost in her own worry, followed him silently.

OOC:
really didn't have anything to add to this one. cue cheesy news-anchor voice:
"And now for the weather. Back to you, Piero."

Given that the red-haired woman had departed well in advance of Marcello and Claes, it probably should not have been surprising that she wasn't anywhere in sight by the time the two actually set out to follow her. Thankfully the path she had appeared to be following when she started on her way gave some indication of where she might have gone.

Claes follows Marcello at a short distance and off to his left a bit... instinctively falling into the second position for tactical squad movement, also on the alert and ready to take cover at the first indication of another human presence.

The number of trees started to increase as the path led further into the park, making it more difficult to see one's surroundings. To make matters worse, the path seemed to be coming up to a junction -an area surrounding a small fountain where two paths met. The red haired woman was still nowhere to be seen...

IC: Marcello paused for a moment looking at each path. For a moment he thought of splitting up to cover both paths. That however usually got people dead in various movies, and Marcello was in no mode for life to imitate art in this case. If nothing else they could pick up the car after this, and even talk to Mr. Bruni. He looked back at Claes, "You don't see her, or anything do you?"

IC:
Because she was focusing on trying to get a glimpse of the woman in the trees, Claes completely missed Marcello's gesture.

OOC: Hey sorry for the delays, my raid set up was driving me crazy there for a bit. Anyway Piero I did understand your last post I just wanted to be sure, that's all. Just so I'm clear though. My character is getting some cover from the trees, and moving in the direction of the voices. He's trying to see if he can see the people having the conversation.

IC: Marcello stopped for a moment, to listen to the voices, doing his best to make sure he was moving to flank his unseen opponents. Confident of his surroundings, he moved his hand to feel the weight of the gun in his holster. Now was not the time to be caught flat footed with your weapon in your holster. He turned around to motion for Claes to draw her weapon as well. Only she wasn't there. Panic gripped him completely for a moment.

He looked around desperately trying to spot her. When he was certain she wasn't there, he retraced his path as quickly as he dared. The relief of seeing her standing on the path was palpable. As was his anger. Holding his pistol under his jacket, he grabbed Claes by the arm and pulled her off the path, and into the trees. He put his mouth to her ear, and barely whispered. "You have got to pay attention, or things will go all sorts of wrong," He hissed in anger. He sighed, and tried to swallow his anger "Get your gun out, and take point. We're going to circle around them quietly. You stop when you can see them, and you watch. Got it?"

OOC:
but seriously... we're found out, dude, she heard ya. may wanna back up two of your posts and react to that. that's why Claes didn't move a muscle. movement is easier to see.

OOC: Wil, you do realise that this woman was actually addressing Marcello directly, don't you? Marcello asked Claes if she'd seen any sign of 'her' (the woman in question) and the woman decided to make her presence known by calling rather dryly declaring that 'I though Sam was a he.' Sam was the name of the black lab Marcello and Claes were supposedly searching for earlier, remember?
