Settling In - Spirals - Part 6

 Key: FD, FF, MC,

Description: The subliminals in the club begin to push Midnight’s thoughts in a new direction. (Parts of this story were a requested commission).

    Midnight sat back and looked around the club with a smile. Across the room she could see Xander with his feet up, enjoying his hypnotic handiwork in the form of the three young women who were dancing sexily on stage. It was a quiet night…for a nightclub that was, by all accounts, in full swing. Her friend, Veo, had tasked her with ensuring that Xander survived his first night as manager of the club. As far as she could tell, he was doing just fine.

    And then something shifted in the music and a new track began to play in the background…a subliminal track. One that, from the sounds of it, was designed to bring out the more...dominant and submissive tendencies of everyone inside. Quite a naughty thing to do to a club full of young, nubile test subjects, but not unexpected for a nightclub that was dedicated to hypnosis.

    Unfortunately, she wasn’t the only one to notice the subliminals. As she turned her head in Xander’s direction, she saw that he had already bolted to his feet and was running up the stairs. “Where is he going?” she thought to herself as she listened to the subliminals and smiled. She had always loved the tingling feeling that she got in the back of her mind when she listened to the commands hidden in the subliminal messages. The fact that she could hear them and willingly let them alter her thoughts, not to mention being able to understand what they were doing to her, made her feel twice as devious. It was like she was peeking behind the curtain to see what strings were being pulled. The very thought sent a shiver down her spine until she remembered she was supposed to be keeping an eye on Xander.

Settling In - Spirals - Part 5

 Key: FD, MD, FF, FM, MC

Description: With the night in full swing, Nadia makes her move.

    By all accounts, the grand re-opening of Spirals’ was, without a doubt, a success. The music was thumping, the dance floor was full, and three lovely ladies onstage were swaying their hypnotized bodies for the enjoyment of the crowd. Xander was relaxing at a nearby table, admiring his handiwork while Midnight kept a close eye on him from the shadows, ensuring that the incubus didn’t cause too much trouble.

    But on the entry level of the club, things were about to take a turn. Nadia watched the dancers onstage and couldn’t help but notice how smug Xander looked as he enjoyed their performance. “Two can play at this game…” she said, grinning deviously and strutting over to the DJ booth.

    Tammy was busy flipping through the list of songs on the computer screen and bouncing to the music that was playing in her headphones. She’d listen to a few seconds of a song and then slot it into the playlist before moving on to the next, it was a fantastically complex process that she had mastered years ago. Her job was to keep track of the audience’s mood and balance the pace of the songs to give them a break every now and again. Of course in doing this she still managed to keep them moving in the direction that the club wanted, high energy with just a hint of danger and the promise of sex. Just like any other nightclub. She was so engrossed in her work that she didn’t notice the door opening up behind her as Nadia snuck into the booth.

    The redheaded hypnotist smiled as she shook her head. “I should have known you’d be oblivious, you always were.” she said deviously as she reached into her pocket. “Lets see if we can’t put that level of focus to some good use.” Carefully and silently, she moved behind Tammy and dropped a crystal pendant in front of her eyes.
