Charlie looks at everyone at the table and says "Well, let me be the first to introduce myself to our new friends..... I am Charlie Cain and this stunning beauty * points and winks at Mak * is my fellow detective Makensie Brewer. The drunk guy there is Mark Stone, thats Crunchpatty *points to Crunchpatty* and I seem to have forgotten everyone else's name in my attempt to get alittle drunk tonight. But come and enjoy our friendship."
Mak slaps Charlie's arm and laughs aloud at his attempt to be formal. Then she says aloud " dont mind him he likes to flirt with any woman around."
Charlie sets back down rubbing his arm and smiles like a little kid who got caught doing something he wasnt sopposed to do.
The waitress arrives with the drinks and tells Mark in a whisper " The lady at the bar has bought you a drink what would you like?"
" How about a shot of Bourbon miss." Mark replies with a very noticable slur.
"Are you gonna be alright to get home Mark?" Asks Celeste
"Why I aint that drunk yet, I can manage * as he trys to stand and fails * ok maybe I will slow down abit." Mark replies with a grin.
Everyone gets a good laugh and then they all go back to enjoying a good night of chatting and being with friends..... something that their line of work doesnt allow too much of.
Makensie, who was slightly intoxicated, sees Shady fall, and says, "Alright!! Someone finally killed the little sap sucker" and she slaps the table in emphasis. She looks at Charlie, leans over, almost falling into him, and says, "Look.....there.....*points behind her without looking* ....."Shady....on ground....isnt that a HOOT?" and she begins laughing.
Charlie looks at her, smiling, almost laughing, and says, "Hoot? Someone falls to the ground, and u think its a hoot. Mak, you have been to one too many crime scenes" He looks at Mark, shrugs his shoulders, while taking a drink and says, "Gotta love her"
Makensie looks at everyone, feeling quite dazed and gets the fit of giggles. Mark says, intoxicated himself, says, "She needs another drink to keep her straight" Charlie groans, and says, "She needs coffee" Makensie winks at Charlie, and says, "Nothing like a wide awake drunk"
Then, Shady stands up, and looks at all of us funny, but keeps walking to the back of the bar.
Charlie and Mark look at each other, wondering what his problem was, and Makensie says, "Oh who cares? I'm off duty. " and attempts to get up to go to the bathroom.
She shrugs, sighs, and looks at Charlie, saying, "Well...maybe I will wait just a minute"
Celeste is laughing at something Mark was saying, and everyone was having a fun time, enjoying a crime free night.
Shady sat in the back, just watching the detectives.
Lucian comes in, donned in full tuxedo, and waves at Charlie, Mak, LED, Mark... everyone at the Tricky Mister.
"Oi, the Annual Sleuthville Ball is starting!! Get your tuxedos and gowns on and C'MON!!"
Lucian straightens his bowtie, and taps his watch. "Let's meet at the Sleuthville Ballroom in, let's say.... 5 minutes?"
He nods at the tavern's patrons, and exits... making a dash towards the ballroom, the vodka, and the scrumptious sour cream and onion dip.
