DtC grumbles and growls as he starts scratching at the motel room door. This is humiliating but a cat has to do what a cat has to do and until he gets opposable thumbs…

“Let me in!!! Come on I know you‘re in there, I can smell you! Don‘t you ever bathe!?! Let me in!!!”

Riddick hears the mangy cat scratching at the door. He would install a cat flap, but this is so much more fun. 'Sides which it's not like the damn beast would be grateful or anything. Slowly, like he has all the time in the world he leavers himself off the couch and goes to the door.

It just figures. She left and made it quite, infinitely clear that she wants nothing to do with him any more, and he gets stuck with the damn cat!

Riddick is already scowling down at the cat when he opens the door.

"You know if you were a nice cat, and actually stopped plotting to kill me, I might think about putting in a cat door."

Riddick speaks slowly. Dispite the fact that this is a talking animal, sometime he's not to sure the stairs make it all the way to the next floor.

"Where. Are. Who?"

First impulse is to back hand the animal into next week. The last thing he wants is to be reminded about Alice. Damn animal hasn't caught on that she hasn't been here in a long time.

Riddick's upper lip curls into a snarl, with himself as much as the cat. Since Alice left he hasn't done much of anything but sit on the couch and channel surf.

"Alice is gone. She's been gone for a long time and she's not coming back. I don't know where your other *women* are. *They* never lived here!"

"They're not in the Nexus?" He asks rhetorically.

It feels like a kick in the gut that Alice thinks that she has to run so far, so hard to get away from him. He got the clue. He wasn't going to press her any more.

Riddick's lips press together in a thin line and his eyes flick to things unseen as he tries to make sense of it.

But Jack's gone too. Maybe it's related.

"Where's the other Riddick?" He asks seriously. If Jack was gone, Riddick would know where she went.

Riddick's nose curls at the idea of salmon. No, of course he doesn't have any salmon. He deliberately keeps stuff like that out of the apartment. It wouldn't do to let the clawed demon spawn think it was welcome here.

"The other Riddick might know where your Jack is. No, I don't have any salmon. Why would I keep salmon? And what's got your fur rubbed the wrong way that you need the girls?"

"No, if I was *trying* to annoy you, I'd go get a jar of fleas."

Alice knows as soon as she opens the creaky door that the room isn't quite as empty as she had hoped it was. The lights are turned down low and she can hear the voices of two men arguing from some other room. She freezes with her hand on the doorknob. Shit, shit, shit. There go all of her plans to sleep in a bed and maybe take a shower tonight. She's not too far gone that killing people for a bed is something she's willing to do yet so she starts slowly backing out and hoping that the two men are too busy with their problems to come out and notice her.

Riddick's head whips towards the sound of the creaky door opening. He left it creaky for a reason. Mercs. He glances over at the cat with an evil grin on his face, but he doubts the cat will want to join the fun.

His apartment is barely lit, and he disabled the light switches a long time ago. He's been hoping for something like this. It's been so dull without Alice around.

Stepping out of the bathroom, he stands in the middle of the hall, filling it.

The planned taunt dies on his lips.

"Alice..."

Alice's about to dart away into the shadows when she spots a big, a very big man stepping into the hallway but when the man says her name she freezes. Her muscles tense in preparation to defend herself and her heart starts racing. Her gaze rapidly shifts from the man to the walkway and back again and her grip tightens on her knapsack. How does he know her name!?!

Questions race in his mind as he stares at her. He closes his mouth which had fallen open. He's unaccustomed to revealing things like surprise. It's not often it happens, but...

There's a furtive quality to her stance that wasn't there when he saw her last. Her body language screams to him that she's running and running scared.

It eases something inside of him that she's run to him, even if she seems wary of him at the moment too.

"Why don't you come in and close the door," he suggest in a low calm voice.

Alice hunches her shoulders when he speaks. Come in? What if the other man she heard's a company goon? How does he know her name?! Her breath starts coming in soft pants as she debates what to do. He looks like he could catch her if she ran and she's so tired of killing. Before she realizes that's she's doing it she takes a small step forward.

A master at reading body language he can tell she's almost as skittish about being on this side of the door as the other, despite the fact that she's taken a step into the room. He offers her all the reassurance he has.

"They'll have to get through me too."

From: [personal profile] what_if_alice
Alice looks at him curiously when the man speaks again. Her brows furrow as she takes another small step inside. She looks back toward the walkway again before shifting her grip on her bag and looking back toward him. She doesn't know what to do. If he was one of them he'd already be trying to capture her but maybe this is a new technique the Company's using after she killed the last batch. But... what if he's not. She darts her tongue over her lips and when she finally speaks, her voice is little more than a whisper.

"Really?"

From: [identity profile] curious-riddick.livejournal.com
Riddick has to unclench his jaw to speak.

"I thought you knew that." He manages to rumble the word at her rather than growl them.

Alice stiffens and she completely stops moving at the tone of his voice. She lowers her gaze as she starts considering whether or not taking off is worth it. She's still close enough to the door that she can make it. She looks back up and whispers. Her voice sounds harsh to her own ears, after all it's been a while since she's spoken.

"Why would I know that?"

Well, that didn't win him any brownie points.

No, he thinks. Guess you never did know that did you.

She never had trusted him. She was always quick to think he had betrayed her.

"'Cause I never tried to kill you back."

As if she needed just one more thing to add to her confusion, what he said could be classified as it. She cocks her head as she forces her muscles to relax. She's pretty sure that if he'd tried to kill her she'd remember it or that she'd tried to kill him. Pretty sure at least, that's the best she can do anymore. She shakes her head slowly and takes a small step back.

"Kill you?"

Riddick tilts his head to the side and looks at her curiously with narrowed eyes. Her question carries the undertone of 'Who-the-fuck-are-you?' That could mean one of several things.

1. Umbrella Corp - lots of variations under that one. All bad.
2. Something else unrelated has happened to her, leaving him without any memory of him.
3. The woman in front of him is a different Alice.


"Do you remember me or know who I am? Jill, Carlos, L.J., Angela?"
