An Odd Feeling  
Lux made a slight killing at the tables, and she with them she wanted to move to the other side of Monte Carlo. Mainly the Muggle side. I don't blame her. She's always been more comfortable with Muggles than Wizards.

And I wasn't too keen on staying in the inn anymore. Not after having a pair of eyes on me everywhere I went, when I wasn't in the room. Well not everywhere, but it felt like someone had been watching me for the longest time.

She's already upstairs, while I wait downstairs. A Muggle hotel had already been picked out, and I already checked us out. She just needed to get the rest of her stuff. So I'm in the lobby, two travel bags in hand and ignoring the creepy crawly feeling of being watched.

Or trying to at least.

"Ready?" Lux appears beside me, carrying another bag.

I start, not expecting her so soon. "Y- yes."

"You look like you saw a ghost," she remarks.

"Just got lost in thought. I'm ready. I already contacted one hotel in the Muggle section. They have a room set aside for us."

"Good," I nod. I don't know what's bothering Nina, but hopefully whatever it is will not be a problem once we move.

As we get going, Nina turns to me. "You haven't been having any problems with the tables have you?"

I think back to that man from before. "Just one. A few days, but I took care of it."

"No trouble with casino security? I know you've been blackballed from a few of them, so I'm just curious."

"It was just a con man trying to take our winnings," I shrug.

"How ironic," she responds, her tone dry.

I give her a look in response. "What?"

She gives me a look. "What is it that you do again?" Nina asks teasingly.

I smirk. "These winnings were won fair and square. As fair and square as possible in a casino."

"As you say," Nina replies as we enter the small hotel. I asked her to find one that's not exactly attention getting. She walks up to the counter. "Made a reservation for Zaria Damascus."

The clerk nods and Nina turns back to me as he looks for the key. "What?"

"Nothing, Miss Damascus," I answer, giving her a look, slightly amused. She's learning. I have to admit, I'm impressed. She used to be against most of what I did and now she is doing some of it herself.

I can't quite tell what she's thinking. Then again, I gave up a while ago to try and figure out what she's thinking. Oddly, I've picked up a few Lux like habits in the two years we've been 'traveling' together. I've gotten quite handy at swiping car keys from a passerby. Not that's something to be actually proud of, but considering everything, it's something.

I used my grandmother's maiden name, thinking it won't show up on anybody's radar.

"Just following the example set before me," I say breezily.

She nods, looking somewhat pleased by this.

As we go down the hall, I feel once more like I'm being watched. I feel goosebumps on my arms rise up and when I get to the door, I look to my right, but see nothing. I mentally shake off the feeling and we go inside.
