Why so serious?

Orion smoothed the folds of her dress and grinned. It was simple, dark grey marl with a cut out back tied in a bow and short sleeves. Not that Mr-Strapless-Isn't-My-Thing had anything to do with that decision of course. No, no. It had just been the first thing that came to hand when the impromptu drinks idea had been floated.

"Aw, thanks Goo!" she said with an affectionate nudge. Ri had none of the trouble with nicknames that he seemed to. Most people didn't even know her actual name. "And you look...smart," she added and straightened his tie. "Just like that book. No one ever teach you not to read in bars?"

She polished off the stolen drink in one gulp just as his replacement arrived. She considered stealing that as well but in the interest of fair-play she restrained herself to just taking the cherry and ordered herself another two. He gave her a look that usually came from the likes of her brother and she stuck her tongue out at him. "Thestrals don't do half measures," was all the explanation she gave.

The conversation inevitably tuned to Quidditch, as Becca had so rightly pointed out was the only thing they had in common, and then to his broomstick.

"Oh...sure," she gulped. It wasn't like she'd forgotten all about it and left it lying in the hedgerows when she went to lunch with Randy or anything. It was probably still there. If someone hadn't used it for firewood of course, there were Reym kids about after all. "I will get that back to you. ASAP." Then to the subject of what it was for.

"Funny you should ask that," she began, after knocking back both drinks she'd ordered in quick succession. Her vision was slightly more blurry afterwards but she was still standing up in her heels so there was no need to stop now. "Someone told me a riddle. Well, Randy said it wasn't a riddle after all but something I should be punching that someone for but he wouldn't tell me why." She popped another cherry into her mouth and tried to ignore the tingling feeling spreading across her skin. He was still looking at her. "Oh, right. It went like this. Why would..."

  • Experimental drinks. - Dagon, Mon Jan 19 17:36
    Dagon carefully shut the book he had been studying as his drink reappeared in the hands of the Thestrals beater. He signaled for another one and gave Orion a second look. “Good evening, Ri.” he said, ... more

        Brad came up to the bar and looked at the drinks along the back. Not that his drink order ever changed, but looking gave the illusion that he had made a calculated decision and kept idiots from... more
        • Difficult by Nature - Ri, Sat Jan 31 22:42
          Orion didn't catch on that she had said something wrong as quickly as the two boys had. She was still earnestly waiting for an answer to the riddle, even as Dagon's face ballooned and he choked and... more

            “Riddle?” Brad said. “What riddle I never…” Her words to Dagon came forward in his mind, along with a very clear image of what exactly that actually meant. His nostrils flared, and he could feel his... more

              She stumbled backwards against the wall as he charged forward and her heel got caught in a crack between the paving stones. His arms pinning her in on either side prevented her from getting enough... more

                Brad growled something equally Thestral-appropriate “ Can you just --just don’t--- just, don’t.” One of his fists thumped the wall in frustration “Who told you I don’t like you?” Ri pushed forward,... more

                    For the past few months (which were starting to feel endlessly long) he had heard her say that and excuses clambered all over each other to tell him to stop. Aya Gee had been the loudest. With their... more

                          Up until the last moment she wasn't sure that Bradley wouldn't just growl at her, spit out an insult and stalk off as he usually did. That, or give her a black eye. He didn't though. His full weight... more

                            He wasn’t sure when they went beyond kissing, but it was something that had needed to happen for a long time now. In the back of his mind, something whispered about age differences, their status as... more

                                Drinks. Drinks were good. He nodded and held the door open for her to go through first. He made a point to walk to the other end of the bar, to avoid looking suspicious. It was, unfortunately the... more
