[roshkin shipyard] for we were born in the darkness... [yasha]

and so darkness we became...

Rays of deep orange light burned through the floor to ceiling windows that looked out over the Roshkin's shipyard. The sun was coming down but that didn't mean the days work was done. Aleksei never really stopped working. He had spent time inspecting ships today, working with the enchanters on one of the newest builds, and especially observing the offloading of a very specific (and covert) set of packages. They had come on a ship out of Madagascar and Aleksei's clients were very eager to get a hold of the boxes but first the paper work had to be done.

The paper work always had to be done.
Like any good business co-owner the dark wizard had two sets of books. One set kept the daily logs, ships in and out, cargo received, the bottom lines and so on. The other book was only for the secret matters. Things they didn't exactly clue the Ministry in on during their yearly reviews. Things like the shipment of crates that had arrived today.

The middle aged wizard took his time writing into the log what had come in, the weight, the price, and even the client's name. It was a secret book but it was also his leverage should they ever be caught. He was perfectly happy being a mid sized fish. It meant there was always a bigger one for the aurors to catch and he could be helpful in that if it meant saving his own neck or more specifically Yasha's.

Half way through the entry he used his wand to turn the flame under the pot on across the room, brewing a pot for tea and getting ready to settle in for the night. He was still dressed in his business clothes, pressed black slacks, shiny black shoes, and a knit grey sweater with a collared dress shirt sticking out from the top but tucked in at the waist. His hair was long but less unruly than his brother's. Closing the book Aleksei took out a jar of powder with a brush resembling a duster sitting in it. Undoing the lid the wizard began to lightly dust the shimmering powder over the book he had placed into a secret drawer of his desk. Brush by brush it began to disappear and that was when he heard footsteps coming his way.

The open air loft wasn't his alone, he shared it with two others, and he recognized the footprints as his brother's.

"Yasha if you come over here do not get any of this on you." He said, noting the invisa-dust and knowing exactly how playful the other could be at times.

He knew it from the moment that he spoke the words out loud that this was going to end in disaster. To Yasha it would be the most fun, it would be a wonderful time, but to Aleksei it was a waste of time and more importantly highly valuable invisibility powder. "Nooo... we shouldn't." He tried but his words lacked true motivation. Aleksei was a smart wizard and one of the things he was good at was knowing when a cause was lost. And when it came to stopping his playful brother from doing something ridiculous the cause was nearly always lost. He shook his head, one stray lock of long hair that was normally finely combed and stuck in place with charms fell across his forehead. For identical twins the two could not of looked more different in that moment. One was dressed casually, pajamas and messy hair, the other formally with pressed slacked and a clean shave.

"Stop it." He said sharply, the corners of his mouth abandoning him and turning into a smile even as he tried his best to retain his scowl. "Yasha!" He scolded but it was no use. It was already done. He felt the tingling of the powder as it set in to do it's magic on his nose. He couldn't help but look down crosseyed at the lack of an appendage hanging off of his face. He could of admitted it was a little bit funny but that would mean telling Yasha that he had been right and like any good big brother Aleksei simply couldn't do that.

"Yasha this stuff isn't cheap." He said, frowning heavily despite the fact that it was exactly what his twin had asked for. He put his hands on his hips and shook his head again. "Can't you take anything seriously? I'm trying to work...." Even as he said it it felt like a lie. He was a serious man. He was all about the details and getting things done and making money but there was something about the playfulness in his brother's eyes, eyes that mirrorred his own, that always brought him cheer. He couldn't help but relax a little and finally resign into a small chuckle.

"You're an idiot you know that?"

"I really don't need to have more fun Yasha." He told his brother, a serious look on what was left of his face as he tried to remember the anti-potion for the invisible powder. He knew he had it listed somewhere in the building... one one of the many shelves of books he'd enchanted with anti-yasha charms. "What I need is to make more sickles." The dark wizard was all about cash flow. He was greedy, ambitious, and entirely materialistic. He knew as well as anyone that money meant power and he was hell bent on hoarding as much of it for the two of them as he could.

Despite himself and everything he was motivated to do there was always something about his baby brother that brought out his lighter, more playful side, and meals were usually a winner. He shook his head, smiling, before offering Yasha what was left of his large coffee cup. "It's black, but its caffeine." He turned and went toward the kitchen that adjoined the large living area of their studio. Basically they lived in a warehouse converted into residential space. The ceiling was high and the beams were exposed and there were grand windows looking out over the docks they controlled and it was home. Aleksei felt safe here.

"I will make the chicken if you make the potatoes, deal?" He offered, looking into the enchanted ice box they kept fresh foods before turning back to his brother and making some demands. "But none of that sour cream crap in there. Just potatoes okay..."
