The bar is a total dive, but Teanna and I have been here every saturday since our first date(It was the sight of our first date, bring the train wreck of a boyfriend you met at work to meet your friends!). It’s small, dark and quiet, the stale beer smell isn’t too noticable, the smokers all stay on the balcony and the staff and most of the clientelle are all free born Parafolk
The bouncer nods at us. His name is Bubbles, he’s a head taller than most men and twice thick. His brawn is intimidating enough without the fact that I’d seen him lift two grown men out of the bar with his T.K and barely looked strained.
“Shayde, Tea.” He smiles a dazzling piano key smile at us.
“Bubs.” We shake hands, I can feel his energy under his skin like bagged lightening. he hugs Tea and we talk shope for awhile before heading inside. Our regular bar booth already contains everyone but us.
“How was work baby?” Val flirts at me, he smells like bourbon and cigars. Dazzling green eyes, beaded, oiled dreads and volts of charisma make him the most entrancing human being you’ll ever meet and that’s without his loa helping him out a little.
“The Germans had me testing their stryder proof walls.” I say sitting next to him, exchanging a quick hug.
“And are they?” He asks, he pours Tea a glass of mulled wine from the pitcher.
“Not quite.” There are a few laughs from around the table.
The night progresses slowly, we drink mulled wine and cider to chase away the chill thats starting to creep in with autumn. Four men walk into the bar, they smell like unadulterated humanity and blind hatred. Bubbles walks in behind them and leans against the back wall. Watching?
“Can I get anything for you boys?” The waitress is a young telepath, she hasn’t been working here long. The man shoves her, he looks at her like she might bite him.
“You can get out of my face you Pathy piece of shit.”
He actually looks as though he’s going to spit on her when he realizes every single person in the bar has stood and doesn’t look particularly phased by him or his friends.
