You don't want to imagine what settles in there, though - I mean, basically everything does. Even when dry I can't recommend them as a usable space for anything, especially athletics." Normally she was somewhat disquieted by her coworker who fed on nightmares instead of blood, but she didn't mind this constituent being an appetizer. "It'll be easier to show you on the system," she says, turning back to Magnus, now largely ignoring Karen as well.
Karen huffs, a definitively Karen sort of huff. "I don't need to patronized by you - I know what a retention ponds does. But Billy is the captain of the LaCrossin' Buffaloes, and he has a responsibility to lead them to victory. I would think you'd understand the importance of civic pride.""That sounds divine, Melissa. Miss Krieger, if you would go with her."
Magnus' eyes darken subtly as he catches the annoying constituent's gaze, and she will feel the sensation of looking out through her own eyes as something puppets her body away. That would be Zalgo, an ephemeral tentacle reaching out to command and control her.
"The mayor understands civic pride, and you can bet your boots he's going to hear about this." Checkmate apparently; she turns away from the pair, no doubt to write an extremely Karen email to the Mayor.
