The Club; Caritas.
In another city, this would not be one of Iko's usual stops, and although Luke was familiar enough with the club setting, having the experience of a college student and all, this was not his usual forte as well. But this place had taken quite a different tone recently: with Beverly's 'takeover' of Whitewater just a few weeks prior, the regulars of Caritas had changed quite a bit. Sure, there were still the normal party-goers, but the darker side of the club perked its head a little more often.
And though it aggravated Luke to no end, the wolf-man was quite invested in this city. The quickest way to figure out just what had happened, was to take it straight to the source.
For this reason, both Iko and Luke made their way to this beach-side nightclub. Reaching the front of the line, Iko simply gave a growl and a nod to the blue-beast, Gam, before proceeding in with Luke after paying their cover. Like many evenings, this place had quite the jibe going: a Lillymon trained in fire-breathing let forth dazzling streams of purple flame on-stage; the dance floor, freshly prepped just a few hours ago, was in full swing with several Digimon of various shapes and sizes. Despite all this, it was still a slow night for this place, evidenced by the fact that both the human and the tamer were able to be seated bar-side without any bit of hassle. Perhaps this was due to Beverly's strong words to the city? A lack of confidence, mainly?
"Hmph." The wolf gave another low growl: with the loud cover of sound, only his human partner next to him would be able to clearly make out his words. Seeing the Ankomon's scowl, Luke gave a sigh. "What is it?"
"Doesn't make sense. Don't know much about this place, but if this is the reaction... I don't think its like them to make such a risky play. Especially if they already had the place this successful. Maybe-"
"Shh." Seeing the bartender, a Lobomon, approach, Luke hushed his partner, and sat up, Iko following in kind. And just like that, Iko's tone changed entirely: "Two Devi-Bombs. Open a tab." His voice seemed chipper, like he'd been here a thousand times.
Indeed... this seemed off. What did this 'Beverly' really have to gain by trying to extend her feet? Did they really think that the owner of a club-member was going to be a popular pick for governor, or whatever she was trying to do? And even then, who was going to take her passive words seriously? All that really resulted thus far was a bunch of talking under the table. Was it just a case of misdirection? Maybe a failed publicity stunt?
For Luke, this was just curiosity.
For Iko, however, this was a pointed interest. Perhaps even an opportunity. "Hmph. Place has always been a little too heavy on the rave for my taste." Iko gave a dry chuckle.
