How could I forget about it? It was the best cupcake I’ve ever had and it was a nice present (smiles). Well, I guess I shared my day with you. But I’d say that day was more about the excellent company rather than the presents.
-laughs- I’ll be sure to get you something better next year. -smiles-
He’ll cool off eventually. I hope.
We could go to that cupcake’s place. On my birthday you said you’d take me there someday, remember? We could go and get one and then stargaze (gives him a small smile).
-smiles- Your memory amazes me, Tessa. An’, that sounds just about right, haven’t been there since your day, actually. -laughs- Might’ve been my day, seein’ how I got the better present though.
No. Not at all. At least both me and Dad got everything off our chests, but well… it wasn’t pretty and I guess we both heard things we didn’t really want to hear… He’s pissed at me right now, and he’s not talking to me.
-sighs- Sorry, Tess.
We can go somewhere if ya’ like? Talk about it, er— just, stargaze? Whatever ya’ like.
Didn’t go well, then?
It’s a shining quality of mine, really. I was best at sharing when I was a kid. Of course, I was also best at slugging people, so maybe they just didn’t ask to share. -shrugs-
Don’t worry, Jamesie. I won’t wreck your reputation as a badass.
So I s’pose it only makes sense to expect a sluggin’ soon, yeah? Now that I’ve seen the sharing bit…
-laughs at the nickname- And you’re off to a good start; Jamesie inspires respect.
I could say the same of you. -grins- When I finish working out my plans for world domination, I’ll make sure to let you in on them. You can have Ireland, maybe Australia, possibly even Russia.
-pulls him in for a whole hug- Besides, you don’t want to be embarrassed when I outdrink you again.
-chuckles- Russia?! My, you are generous.
-grins and squeezes her into his chest- Let’s promise to keep that t’ourselves, aye? Don’t need that gettin’ ‘round.
Well, you know, as long as you come back in one piece I won’t have to kill you, okay? I worry, as silly as that sounds. -smiles- Just don’t con me on anything important.
I don’t think that’s such a good idea. You’re a very clingy drunk, don’t want to surround you with a bunch of beautiful women. -laughs- Maybe movie night instead.
I’ll be good. -smiles- An’ worry not, you’re in the inner circle, Miss Fielding. Inner-inner circle, really. If I’m conning anything important, I think you’re more likely to be on m’team than the receivin’ end.
-laughs- Clingy? I’ll take it. -puts an arm over her shoulder in a half hug- Movie night works for me, too.
