Ava Darlington is something utterly different from the others in the Bureau. Emily put her character into words perfectly: attractive and terrifying, like the urge to pet a red tail fox. Despite the feeling of danger there’s something about Ava that pulls Viktoria towards her.
They’ve met couple of times before she met Elyse. Only briefly in some events and high profile fundraisers where the conversations have been anything but deep. She remembers the flash of her sleek blonde hair amongst the crowd in Denver. Radiant light shining through her hair making her stand out from the black and white. Their eyes meeting each other every time through masses of people. Greeting each other with the same deceitful smile that is anything but sincere.
A lot of things have changed since the mid 1980. Ava's now the figure head of The Cloaking Party, The Minority Leader. Despite knowing full well the power she wields something about Ava's presence makes her feel...stripped bare. Her knowing and cold gaze drills through her walls looking for weak spots constantly. Smile tugs at the edges of her painted lips knowingly as she watches her from the other side of ballroom. Like a thief she has sneaked into her life, growing closer with every passing month.
Now, as Viktoria eyes her over the rim of her cocktail glass, the designer barely notices when someone materializes next to her until a small, knowing laugh sounds.
"She's deadly that one."
