After the meeting in the Coffee Shop, Zee and Jesana decide to take a walk. Stretch their legs, shoot the breeze, you know the type of thing. Their steps take them eventually to Central Park. "Last time I was in Central Park, Loki decided he wanted to meet me." Zee grins at the thought "I don't think he liked me calling him comic relief, much…. So, the best way to work out if you trust someone is to get to know them. Ask whatever you like and I'll answer as best I can?"

The young magician is wearing that diamond encrusted collar, with demonic writing on the tag, figure hugging blue jeans, t-shirt, blazer and knee high, high heel boots.

***

Jes has walked along side her, mostly quiet so far and listening to Zee talk. Once they reach a quiet area of the park with no people around, Jes seems to relax. She's wearing the same clothing as the night before. She takes off her jacket and drops it on the grass, offering it for Zee to sit her. She doesn't seem to mind the grass herself, settling easily in a cross legged position. "Anything? Okay. Why are you wearing that collar? It sm..it seems evil." Jes watches her with serious eyes.

***

Zee looks at the offered coat and smiles "Thank you, but you should keep it on, stay warm. I don't mind sitting on the grass. I find it quite relaxing." The question has her hand rising subsconsciously to the collar and she tilts her head to the side, she didn't miss the word the other woman was about to use and stopped.

"Not exactly. The collars not evil, it's not even magic. You're possibly sensing the writing on the tag, but even that… " she sighs, that's the complicated bit. "Like Jericho says, words have power… The collar was a gift for helping Jericho and Illyana out, a couple of times… " Zee pauses "It's a bit of a long story, but I'll share it if you like."

***

Jes tilts her head. "So it's not harming you? If it isn't and no one is making you wear it, then you don't need to tell me." Jes touches her own neck absently. "I had to wear one sometimes. I hated the damn thing." She doesn't seem to mind the cold, despite sitting on the ground in only a jean skirt and tank top. Though Zee might be able to see the goose bumps forming on her skin indicating that she is feeling the temperature, just ignoring it.

***

"Oh, I don't mind sharing. It reminds me of who am I. And no, the collar isn't harming me." Zee goes on to explain how her teleport bought her to Jericho by mistake (a number of times), the trip to Limbo, fighting demons alongside Illyana and Jericho and the visit in the massage salon…. "For me, it's a reminder of what I gave up and why… apart from the fact that I think it's quite cute."

The comment about Jes having to wear a collar, gets a questioning a look "Want to talk about it? And I really wish you'd put your jacket back on. I'm getting cold just watching you."

***

Jes listens to Zee with obvious interest. Several times her nose flares and she takes a deep breath. "I will. I just..I need to show you something. I'm not supposed to but, if you are taking me somewhere you say is safe then you should know. I have no idea how those people found me but I know why they want me. At least, I've got a pretty good idea why. Plus, you told me what you are. And I saw what that man, well I don't really know what he is but not a regular person for sure.

***

"That man, is Jericho. And despite his look and what you may sense, one of the most decent people I've met." Zee watches Jes and tilts her head. "Why don't you show me, when we're somewhere safe? Out here, it might be dangerous for you." Smiling to soften the words, Zee continue "You might be surprised how many people I know who have secrets that others want. If you want, show me. If I can help make you safer, by knowing, then do. But don't do it because 'I showed you mine'" Zee snickers at that.

***

Jes laughs at this. "Ohh I think I like you, Zee. It's not dangerous though and will only take a moment. Just, if anyone happens by pretend I'm yours." With that, Jes gracefully rises to her feet and steps out of her sandals. She doesn't show any embarrassment or sense of modesty at what she does next, which is slip her tank top up over her head and off, and then drop her skirt. She isn't wearing anything beneath her clothing. She takes a deep breath and Zee can see a look of nervousness on her face before it abpruptly disappears. It happens so fast, one moment Jes is standing before her, naked and trying not to shiver and the next she's gone and there is a coyote in her place. One green eye and one blue. She hunches down, her ears going flat and tail waving nervously as she awaits Zee's reaction.

***

Zee is snickering as Jes 'changes' and she blinks at the naked girl, standing in Central Park, and then blinks again at the coyote. "Oh that is awesome! You're really going to have meet Vorpal and Changeling! They're shifters but different." Zee holds a hand out, palm down to Jes, letting the coyote do what it will. "Vorpal is a Purple Cheshire cat when he isn't being Keith the redheaded young man." Yep, Zee's got some strange friends.

***

Jes blinks at her and edges forward to sniff Zee's palm. Her nervous tail waving takes on a happier note as keeps talking and doesn't look alarmed or disturbed. She sniffs along Zee's wrist and then licks her palm. She can't speak like this but seems aware of what Zee is saying.

***

Zee laughs as Jes licks her palm and will pet he, if she lets her. The young magician is not going to push any boundaries, trust is built on solid foundations. "Well, I've got lots of questions, like were born this way, how long have you known, why are you running, you are running aren't you…" Zee could rattle them off for a while, really. She seems quite happy though, to sit there and let Jes be a coyote for as long as she wants.

***

Jes gives her a big coyote grin and ducks her head, pressing her ears against Zee's hand and settling in front of her. She'll stay like this for a bit and listen to Zee talking and then answer her questions once she changes back. She hasn't been able to shift and relax since coming to the city and she's clearly very happy for the chance.
