Kai moved enough that he'd be able to eavesdrop without being too obvious, then started scoping out the room for potential 'gtfo' options, or impromptu violence escalation pieces.

GTFO options: There were two other entrance/exits from the room other than the one they had come in through. One led into hotel that the conference area was attached too and the other was the side exit.

The conversation:

Male: "...the west has to do something about Putin eventually."

Woman (Erica Lookalike): "The west acting against Putin only strengthens his base of power in Russia. The average Russian is sick of their nation being broken and poor, they want the Motherland to be a power on the world stage again and that desire means that they will overlook the faults of a leader who can give them what they desire. America and western Europe acting against Russia is confirmation that Russia is a power again."

Other Male: "So they want a rehash of the Cold War?"

Woman (Erica Lookalike): "They want a country to be proud of and until the west understands that they will continue to be ineffective in their ability to undermine Putin's rule. There needs to be another option for the people of Russia and right now there isn't."

She looked like Erica. Hair was different and she was alive ... sounded like Erica except that her accent and her diction were fully modern.

Katrina smirked, it was her in into the conversation. She smiled at the group. "Sadly it is not just Russia, in countries all over Europe the Far Right is gaining power with the people and rapidly. Even more so with the current Migrant crisis. Hell it is even happening here with Donald Trump. The Russian people are resilient, the west's sanctions has made life harder for them but to the Russian people it is not Putin doing this to them... its the west. If we continue at the current course all we are going to do is radicalize the Russian people who will see us as the enemy. The sanctions imposed don't hit Putin, they don't even hit the politicians. It hits the people but when it comes to the blame game... people are never going to realize the Wests course of action was because of Putin. All they are going to see are the people doing this to them. "

The trio looked up at Katrina.

There was no hint of recognition in the eyes of the Erica Doppelganger.

"Yes. Attacking Russia for the mistakes of the ruling class only allows those in power to point to an enemy. Until the west realizes that Putin and those behind him are the problem, not the entire nation, actions against Russia as a whole only allows him to tighten his grip even further." It was the Not-Erica but totally looks like her woman who spoke.

"Russia is Russia. It is a different culture from Western Europe and North America and its development has come from a far different history, especially in the 20th Century. Constitutional Monarchies and Liberal Democracies on one side, Autocratic Imperial Dynasty and the Soviet Union on the other. Expecting Russia to become America was always a pipe dream but punishing it for not being America only drives its people further under the control of the current regime."

"Agreed. It is a very different culture. I am not saying they need to change their culture or way of life. However they do need to learn to play nice with the international community. So far current actions have been taken as a result of them not playing nice.

"Historically Russia has rarely played nice with anyone and that is the attitude which must change. The idea that Moscow is the Third Rome and that Russia is the big brother to all Orthodox and Slavic peoples has been as dangerous to world peace as America's belief that they were the 'Guardians of Freedom' during the Cold War."

One of the drunk reporters raised an eyebrow at that. "We were. Still are."

"No America was the Guardian of Non-Communist slash Socialists during the Cold War, the legality or morality of the government in question did not matter, only the political ideology. No government involved made it out of the Cold War with clean hands but that is the past and tomorrow is the future. We can only learn from the past to prevent it from happening again."

Katrina chuckled "America, Russia. Both guilty of the same thing. They are both guilty of a pride that blinds them. Naturally all countries have Pride, Russia and America are undoubtedly tied for first place. As much as people reject it, I have lived in both countries and see the close similarities which actually would explain a lot."

"I will try to stay off my soap box with this particular discussion otherwise It turns into a lecture." she chuckled.

"By all means please continue." The voice belonged to a new arrival to the conversation. A tall handsome man who seemed to draw most of the eyes in the room to himself (Note: Presence 5, SL 4). He had dark brown hair, tan skin and every inch of his frame was immaculate from his hair cut to his Hugo Boss suit to his high end Italian shoes. He was fashion, a picture of wealth and taste.

"Mr. Cross, I had hoped you would grace us with your presence."

Mr. Cross smiled, a perfect set of pearly whites. "It is my pleasure." He smiled at all those around the table.

"Mr. Cross" seems familiar to Katrina. The facial features, the way in which he carries himself, and the eyes.

She's seen those eyes before. Somewhere. Not recently. They stick out in the haze of memories.

Cross is breathing, his skin is flush and he appears to be alive. No Predator's Taint.

But those eyes. She's seen them somewhere in her past.

Something inside of her, the Beast, also seems to recognize them. If she had a heart beat it would be going a mile a minute right now.

The Beast was screaming at her.

The memories were a haze.

But the Beast remembered something and it was afraid. Terrified.

Who the hell is this guy? What is he? If there was some familiarity even on the beasts level she probably knew him a long long long time ago. It was telling her to get the hell out of there and now. His appearance being a coincidence she doubted. She smiled politely, managing to keep her cool. She gently flexed her finger a subtle clue she hoped that at least Eric knew well enough to know. Something was wrong.

"You look familiar. Have we met before?" she asked Mr Cross.

Eric caught the cue and moved closer, putting himself at the Cross' back and close enough to reach him if something went wrong.

Cross merely flashed his winning smile.

"I had hoped that I was more memorable than that when we previously met." The sharp dressed man turned his gaze on the two male reporters. "Please excuse us." Both got up, despite being drunk, without a word of protest and walked away. Not in any real direction, they just walked out of earshot.

Not-Erica looked up with confusion in her eyes.

"You may stay, I believe that you are the reason that Princess, or Miss, is it Scherbatsky now? is here tonight."

Katrina paused, almost a hesitation. "Possibly." she smiled.
