[ happy hour ]

Ben Wade is greeted with a handful of surprises when he enters the bar.

One is delicious.

Another is unexpected, to say the least.

And the last, well. He never minds this particular request so much.

"Happy to," he tells the counter, while he withdraws what's sure to be a spectacular cherry tart from the basket at his elbow. "As long as you don't mind me askin' a favor of you."

A napkin appears.

"Now that's just lewd," he says, smirking. "Flattered as I am, I'll have to say no, ma'am. What I need is for you to hold on to a couple things for me -- if you'd be so kind, of course."

Moments later, Ben's signature black hat and his infamous gun are in Bar's care, where they'll remain for the next few weeks, if not months.

He gives the bartop an affectionate half-smile before rounding the counter, rolling up his shirtsleeves as he goes.

Not long afterward, the specials board bears his uniform scrawl.

milk punch
bourbon coffee

While he waits for customers, he helps himself to that tart -- which is, predictably, delectable -- and a glass of milk punch.

"Greetings," Teja says, turning to look at him. "You did not cause me trouble; I merely stopped you from causing any for yourself."
not_his_pa: (trying to make sense)

"I guess. I was tryin' to not let her get to me," It just didn't work and he ended up feeling a fool.

"At least, she was not trying to eat you, merely about to break another rule," Teja says, almost amused.
not_his_pa: (tired)

William blushes and nods, "Eatin' would be simpler."
ostro_goth: (Almost amused)

"More people have carnal relations then are eaten," Teja points out.

He doesn't have a good answer for that as he didn't want to have any sort of relations with Tamara.

She's beautiful but he knows that would be stupid and he doesn't want Wade to hear this conversation.

"To avoid this," Teja says, meaning William's acute embarrassment, "you might wish to remove her foot, or tail-fin, from your lap sooner, in future."

"Yes, sir, I will,"

He almost got away with not getting into trouble but it felt like she did more this time.
ostro_goth: (Fascinated)

"I know it is hard for you to resist, young as you are, and magical as she is," Teja says. "When I see you together, I shall ever speak up."
not_his_pa: (not sure what to think)

"I try to resist, but it ain't easy."

"I know it is not," Teja says. "I try to help, not censure you, or catch you at anything."

"Thank you, sir and I'll do my best to not cause you any worry."
ostro_goth: (z Canon - we achieved destruction!)

[personal profile] ostro_goth 2012-01-26 10:52 pm (UTC)(link)
"It is my duty to worry and second-guess the future several moves ahead," Teja says. "I am a member of Security, after all."
not_his_pa: (skeptical campfire)

[personal profile] not_his_pa 2012-01-26 10:53 pm (UTC)(link)
"And you do a good job of it, sir."
ostro_goth: (Fascinated)

[personal profile] ostro_goth 2012-01-26 10:59 pm (UTC)(link)
"Thank you," Teja says. "If I did not, I should not have this honour and duty."
not_his_pa: (not sure what to think)

[personal profile] not_his_pa 2012-01-26 11:00 pm (UTC)(link)
"No, don't see that you would."
ostro_goth: (Default)

[personal profile] ostro_goth 2012-01-26 11:03 pm (UTC)(link)
"You need not thank you for merely doing my duty," Teja says.
not_his_pa: (watching you)

[personal profile] not_his_pa 2012-01-26 11:05 pm (UTC)(link)
"Yes, sir. I should leave you to your drink,"

He's not sure he really wants to talk to Wade tonight.
ostro_goth: (Attentive)

[personal profile] ostro_goth 2012-01-26 11:09 pm (UTC)(link)
"If you wish to," Teja says.

He looks at Wade again, and nods, understanding.

William nods and goes back to where he was reading, he'll get his coffee from a rat tonight.
