Kersen sometimes did this thing where when he was feeling his worst, he tried to look his best. Elaborate drag when he was the most down, for example. Like maybe he could force cheerfulness with sequins and lipstick.

This time, he couldn't seem to muster up the energy for drag, though. What "look" said 'I just found out a lover is a serial killer'? Particularly coupled with 'what does this say about my taste in men'? Finally, he'd just gone with the forced cheerfulness: dark purple leather pants and a shirt (gifted to him by an employee years ago) that read OF COURSE I'M PRO-GAY, DO YOU THINK I WORK THIS HARD TO BE AN AMATEUR GAY in bright rainbow colors.

... also he'd started smoking again. Which was a little ironic since he was pretty sure that any effect they had on him was purely psychosomatic.

However, at the moment he was having a smoke break outside his bar. It was fairly early yet, just past 9pm. The streets were still full, lively with people leaving restaurants and shops, heading into bars and theaters. He liked this time of night, where the world was still alive. Wished he could experience more of it.

Some asshole walking by threw a homophobic slur at him, and he was briefly, stupidly tempted to flash his fangs as a threat. Instead he said, "The most fabulous you'll ever see, honey," and flicked the cigarette to the ground. Luckily it was the cowardly sort of asshole, and he just stuck up his middle finger and kept walking.

Really, it was too chilly to be wearing so little -- jeans and a silky, bell-sleeve grey top that didn't fully cover her hips, with a long vest over to provide a little warmth -- and quite the wrong season to be wearing a pink fedora on her black curls. Angelique didn't care, of course, because she loved pink. It was like her signature color red, but... casual.

Her hips swung as she made her way toward Jazzmin, having decided to surprise Kersen and perhaps convince him to spend the evening with her. She was just in time to hear some wanker shout out Fucking fairy in Kersen's direction, and decided in a snap to show him up.

"Hello, baby," Angelique declared, loud enough to carry, and pushed up on her toes (though she didn't really need to) to plant a kiss on Kersen's mouth.

"I noticed," Angelique laughed, her dark eyes amused in the glow of the streetlights. "It was worth it, if that jackass spent even a moment questioning his assumptions. Also, I got to kiss you in front of the whole world, so my evening's starting off very well."

"You, and your drinks," Angelique teased, but she looked at Kersen like he was the only thing in the entire world of any interest to her. She kept close to him, even though he didn't offer any heat, when she added, "Now won't you help warm up a girl who made a wardrobe decision particularly ill-suited to the weather tonight?"

Angelique chuckled under the newly-rakish angle of her hat, and took Kersen's arm to press up at his side with a little shiver she didn't have to exaggerate. "That's exactly what I need. How have you been, gorgeous?"

There would be no maybe about that later if Angelique had anything to say about it. She had worked too hard to earn Kersen's trust to let him go on pushing down his feelings in her company. Still, she smiled for him, accepting that they could let troubles lie for now. "What I always want," she chuckled, low in her throat. "Something hard, and delicious."

Angelique had to admire the lithe, supple lines of Kersen's legs and his back as he slid across the bar. She'd certainly like to snatch a handful of that leather-wrapped backside for her own, but not in front of all of the bar's patrons. Instead, she slid up onto a stool and watched Kersen at work. "I'm always discovering new things about you," she laughed. "I had no idea you were a bar-top acrobat."

Angelique accepted the glass and dipped a little bow of thanks. Then she braced her hat with one hand, and tossed back the shot with the other. Sharp and tart and flavorful, it was just what she'd wanted. With a satisfied sigh, she plunked the shot glass back on the bar, and grinned over at Kersen. "Just the thing. You're perfection, sweetie."

"Hm. I am warmer now," she drawled, pretending to consider it very thoughtfully. "Sweet, I think. Can you match my outfit?" Angelique laughed, then, leaning her arms on the bar and clasping her hands as she watched Kersen work.

"If anyone has ever said that bartending isn't an art, they've clearly never watched you do it," Angelique observed. "Though I believe that anything worth doing is worth doing beautifully. There is simply no excuse for ugliness."

Angelique took the glass and smiled a sweet smile for Kersen, then tasted her drink and sighed contentedly. Delicious, of course. "What else shall we do beautifully tonight? I don't have your voice, but I can sing a decent harmony. Shall we duet?"

"Do you know anything by Hozier?" Angelique asked, brightening up over sips of her new drink. "I'm utterly obsessed with him right now. His songs are my anthems."

Angelique laughed, a delighted little sparkle of a sound. "I'm having a very difficult time imagining you lying around watching internet videos like the rest of us." Grinning, she sipped her drink. "Does that mean you'll sing 'Take Me to Church' with me?"

Angelique broke into a helpless laugh over her drink, bright and easy. She traced a fingertip along the edge of her martini glass, and tipped her head with impish curiosity. "And what kind of porn do you prefer?"
