    Private The New Guy (Icarus)

    Post by Ahote on Thu 25 Jun 2020 - 1:17

    It was the end of the week, and the sun had finally set. Capital Crocus descended into darkness, illuminated only by the bright lights of the buildings littering the city. Although the day had ended, the city's nightlife was just beginning, and on a night as early as this, men, women, and others were retiring after a week of hard work, looking to blow off steam. Fortunately for them, one of the best places to get a drink and have some fun was none other than Boomslang. It was run by a quiet and aloof man named Ahote, who took on a couple of different appearances, but this time being in a familiar long, silver-haired, pale-skinned form.

    The end of the week was busy, and nothing Ahote and his liches could not handle. However, tonight was a tad busier than he would have liked, and now that he had hired some employees, it was a good time to put them to use. The nightclub was rumbling with groovy music, a DJ filling the place with sound and rhythm. Every seat was full and every stripper and dancer was working as if their bills were due at midnight. He could have summoned some of his liches to assist him tonight, but what else were employees good for if not to work?

    Icarus—a lackadaisical, 'go with the flow' bartender in his early twenties was the newest addition to his staff team, and the man he had asked to come in tonight. It would be just him and Ahote operating the place tonight, and the silver-haired man was eager to see how he would perform.

    Icarus might seem the lazy type, but the assumption was far from accurate. He did like to relax and just float sometimes, but when things needed done, it was only natural to do them. The rent amount he had to pay was substantial enough that taking jobs of his low rank from the Sabertooth job board wasn't enough to cover it. Who would pay him enough jewel for his lodgings over catching an escaped cat or tracking down a stolen bicycle? That wouldn't do, but his Nature Soul magic wasn't strong enough yet for him to tackle anything larger without spending all the reward on medical care. Being weak sucked, but strength took time. Icarus was a patient man. His only option for adult survival was to get a mundane job.

    Boomslang seemed fitting. It was a type of snake, was it not? He'd been working on a snake soul takeover, though as of yet he'd only managed to manifest fangs and accidentally poison himself by biting his lip. It was a silly and pointless link up, but it was more than enough to make it feel comfortable to him. Slinging drinks in the heat of nightlife sounded like a fun way to spend his time, second only to being on the other side of the bar enjoying the music and scantily clad people. Yes, indeed the same man that could sit by the ocean and quietly meditate in peace also enjoyed heavy drinks and dropping jewel into panties and speedos alike, but there was a time and a place for everything.

    Clad in a white button-up shirt, smart black vest, tight jeans and shiny black shoes, Icarus looked the part of bartender. As he entered the bar he was rolling up his sleeves to three quarter length, half-lidded eyes sliding around all the activity. Tips should be nice. He slipped behind the bar, and should he find his employer, he'd smile an easy lip-sided smile and speak just above the rabble and tunes. "Ready for duty, boss. Is it just me?"

    Ah, yes. There he was, walking into the club with that comfortable stride, appearing in a traditional bartender's attire. And there was that smile again—the one that made Ahote coin him as the easygoing type. It was easy to tell that Icarus was going to help advertise the place, and it was hard to disagree with that after looking at his face. Whether it was the outfit and its uncanny way of making anyone who wore it look especially well-dressed, dapper, or otherwise attractive that gave off that impression or his face and demeanor that sealed the deal, Ahote didn't know and wouldn't try to better understand. He only acknowledged it.


    Ahote was working behind the bar, mixing drinks, and carefully placing them in front of his customers when Icarus came in and made himself known. When he did, Ahote didn't break from his pace to acknowledge him, only glancing up at him and then back down to his craft.

    "Just us. The others won't be joining us tonight. I know that this is technically your first shift," he started, finishing his last drink before meandering his way around the counter, wiping his hands on a rag and handing it to Icarus with that hard expression of his, "but try not to choke underneath the pressure. It isn't healthy." Ahote finished, looking up at him. He was a little shorter than his colleague, and that was usually the case nowadays, being five foot ten. In any case, whether that was meant to be an attempt at a jest or not would remain a mystery, because as soon as he said it, he left to fill in the other positions and leaving Icarus to his own devices.

    Ahote would be both the waiter and the server, and entertainment was already on the clock. The instant he stepped away from the bar, he was called from table to table, and suddenly his entire demeanor had changed. That hard, aloof expression of his softened into simpers and smile, and he pushed his hair back so more of his pale and incredibly pretty face could be on display. He still wasn't much of a social butterfly, but it was incredible what a smile could do for a business.

    So, Icarus would be by his lonesome this time, left in the company of drunk men and women of varying ages or ones about to fall victim to that same intoxication. Two young women in their early-twenties eyed him lecherously, as if "checking him out," so to speak. Their complexions were caked with makeup and cosmetics, and their outfits were nothing short of provocative. They were a kind of woman Ahote was familiar with serving every week.

    "Hey there, cutie pie. I haven't seen you here very often. New employee, maybe?" she smirked, leaning over the counter and swishing her almost-finished drink.

    "Why don't you leave with us after your shift? Or how about now? We can promise a good time, handsome~" the other girl chimed in, puckering her lips and winking. What a promiscuous pair...

    Icarus' sharp eyes merely observed the other man's body language, unsure by his boss's demeanor whether he was being tested or not. Apparently his choice of wardrobe was approved of, since he wasn't corrected or berated. "Throwing me to the wolves on my first shift? How brutal," he chanced a joke, though the hard expression was a little off-putting. Being purposefully aloof himself, he found he didn't enjoy wearing that shoe on the other foot. How well would this work if Icarus was chill and Ahote was a tight-ass? Then again, that seemed to be all jobs. Might as well see if that expression was capable of changing. It was only natural to test ones boundaries.

    "I don't choke on anything, don't worry," he replied cheekily, letting Ahote make of that whatever he wished while taking the rag and rubbing down the rest of the counter so it'd be nice and clean for the onslaught of partiers. It couldn't be told by his peaceful demeanor, but he had been practicing his mixology skills since he was hired. Couldn't start a new job without the proper skills. He wasn't perfect, but he was definitely more bartender material than before. There was a distinct difference between mixing his own drinks and mixing drinks for paying customers, and on the subject of paying customers, here they came. Hawk eyes watched the man he'd be working with tonight when he had a chance, impressed with the switch that had been flipped. As cold and unreadable as he'd been, now he was the very visage of warm customer service. Funny what people were capable of when they wanted jewel. At least he had the attractive face for it.

    Affording his employer no more attention, Icarus set about the work he was to be paid for. He fielded clubbers right and left as they approached. He did struggle a little to keep up at first, but kept his cool head about him. Even if he had to look up recipes and messed up a few drinks, it was to his credit that he had a silver-tongue and some charm to him, so he could at least keep this customers entertained and distracted with interesting conversation and stories. His first shift was going to be stressful, but if he could handle it as a sapling, then he could definitely deal with this once he'd become a tree.

    Two women approached, the same two who had been eyeing him like starved tigers for meat for some time now. The pair of typical painted club rats on the prowl for a piece of cheese to snack on for the night. Trashy as they may be, there was a certain easy allure these types had. There was no mystery, no challenge. They tried too hard and got just what they wanted, as long as what they wanted was a one night stand or a meaningless fuck, neither things he hadn't fallen in league with before. "I am indeed new. Great observation," he smized to the first girl, already making her a refill drink for the nearly finished one she swished. Even though the goods were being smooshed forward onto the counter, he remained professional and kept his eyes where any man of god would feel most comfortable. The second made her pitch as well, eliciting an easy chuckle out of him and a good-natured wink. "Oh, how about we see what kind of shape I've become after I'm finished with my very first shift? I can't just leave now, a man's gotta work or he'll be utterly worthless to two lovely ladies such as yourselves. Is this what happened to the last guy? Don't tell me you two are responsible for this job opening?" the man fake gasped, schmoozing. "I suppose I should thank you, then," he continued the silly banter, but ultimately sighed, feigning disappointment. "Sadly, I can't leave my boss all alone on such a busy night, now can I? That'd be rude."

    Icarus seemed to have been fairing well, despite the typical lecherous party girls admiring him and his looks like a tender piece of meat. Those sorts of girls weren't uncommon, and it was normal for even Ahote to have several run-ins with their type every time he was serving or manning the bar. Regardless, the silver-haired man glanced at Icarus and those girls every so often just to observe what was happening. He could tell that words were said and smiles were exchanged, but he couldn't hear what was spoken, and frankly, he didn't care to. As long as he was working, what he said in between was of little importance to him. Icarus seemed to be just fine.

    Meanwhile, carefully meandering through the front of the house, Ahote served and cleaned as he went. It was clear that only after a short amount of observation that one could conclude that he was nothing short of... efficient. Every vacant table he passed by, he snatched the unattended and sometimes empty glasses onto a serving tray, balancing a large number of items on his hand with an almost expert amount of control. He'd wipe the tables clean, preparing them for the next inevitable occupancy. Not only that, despite the customers outnumbering him dozens of times over, but he also seemed to be capable of tending to everyone's needs and desires. Albeit, for a short amount of time, but enough to satisfy and appease everyone.

    Back at the bar, the two young women continued to laugh and giggle at just about everything Icarus said as if he was a talented comedian. They played and sipped their intoxicating drinks, entertained by what was happening. However, their playful and almost theatric laughter was like sugar and honey in a room full of flies. It wasn't long before equally lascivious men saw the opportunity and went for it.

    "Heya, babies!" one man greeted, sitting in the seat next to one of the girls.

    "We couldn't help but see your cute asses from across the room, sooo..." said another, taking the seat next to the other girl. Together, they had sandwiched both of the young women in between them. They both looked like they were in their late twenties or early thirties, and dressed like they were working a standard and uneventful nine-to-five job as a telemarketer or something of that nature. They were... average when it came to looks, but carried the confidence of someone who would have to have looked like a model for the Sorcerer's Magazine. Unfortunately, their blatant advances didn't seem the least bit charming to the equally lustful party girls.

    "Yeah, no thanks." she looked away from them, agitated.

    "Hard pass." said the other, looking more disgusted than angry. Despite this, the two men seemed ever adamant to win them over. They weren't deterred by their obvious displeasure and responded with sly smirks of their own.

    "Don't be like that! I guarantee a good time with me and my buddy here, girls!" one insisted, wrapping his arm around the girl's shoulders.

    "Yeah! Hey, bartender!" the other looked at Icarus, beckoning him over, "Give us the hard stuff, and something sweet for the ladies! On us!"

    Icarus




    Being the occasional bar crawler himself, Icarus was acutely aware of what was happening at his station. Lowkey he was hoping the two guys lusting after the two lustful girls would be successful, providing him with a break and the girls with their night's conquest, but his luck couldn't be that good. The two club rats seemed intent on remaining to ogle him, and quite honestly, these two dumbasses didn't have the looks or the charm to get in their line of sights let alone in their ever-so-tight pants. Nonetheless, he was summoned, so the bartender would appear.

    Sometimes girls wanted drinks to be bought for them, but he was getting the vibe that this wasn't the case in this scenario. "What if the ladies want the hard, expensive stuff? If you're gonna buy for them, maybe you should see what they like first," he suggested slyly, dutifully rubbing down the counter right in front of the uncomfortable foursome. Perhaps the girls would take the hint and order something over the mens' pay grades, but he already assumed they were looking for ways out that wouldn't require these "nice guys" buying them drinks and then expecting to be repaid for their "kindness". His eyes slid to the two girls, giving them a comforting wink as his mind looked for all the alternative ways he could get rid of these guys without getting fired. He wasn't sure what the policy for harassment or the expected responses were at Boomslang, and he was default nonviolent unless he absolutely had to exhibit force. "More importantly, ladies? Do you want the drinks they are willing to buy?"

    As Icarus kept asking questions and making suggestions, the two men seemed to have less and less patience for him. To them, the more this charming young bartender spoke, the more he enroached on their courtmanship, so to speak, and to them, it was infuriating.

    "Heyo, bartender! Just chill out, okay? You're really killing our buzz here, man." said the braver man. The two girls didn't even get the chance to reply to Icarus, but the disgust on their faces seemed to speak for them, although the two men didn't acknowledge their blatant displeasure. The instant they felt their hands slither onto their shoulders, they ripped their bodies away from their grip.

    "C'mon man, I said give us something hard and sweet! Didn't you hear me, bro?" the other one chimed in, demanding the drinks he had ordered just seconds before. Although both of them were still smirking and humored by their own laughable seductions, it was easy to tell that they were both becoming increasingly aggravated by Icarus.

    Meanwhile, in the front of the house, Ahote was still doing his work. It wasn't until he could physically no longer carry the dishes that he began to make his way back to the bar, which was adjacent to the kitchen in the back of the building. As he approached the bar, the silver-haired man couldn't help but notice the 'situation' unfolding at Icarus's station. He had seen it a million times, and he had handled it a million times, but he couldn't help but wonder what he would do.

    "Gross!" one girl practically hurled.

    "As if we'd get drinks from you two dickwads! Piss off!" the other added. It seemed as if this situation was only escalating, and Ahote approached it curiously.

    "Alright, bro," Icarus said more firmly, straightening his posture and squaring his shoulders in a much more serious way. If he'd had his wings out they'd have no doubt stretched and angled themselves to seem bigger as a way to intimidate. The golden man could be somewhat menacing when he wanted to be. Even though his expression was still serene with an easy smile, his eyes were the sharp gaze of a predatory hawk. Did he want to do this? Hell no. But there were only two employees that he knew of tonight and he was one of them. Ahote was busy. If there were any security or bouncers, he hadn't seen them and he didn't know how to get in touch with them without leaving the girls. "I'll make you a deal. You either take your drinks and go elsewhere in the club away from the ladies or I can escort you both outside. Once the ladies say no, they mean no. Forcing yourselves on them isn't natural and isn't how attraction works, though I feel like I shouldn't even have to explain that to two grown men. Boomslang doesn't want the reputation as an establishment that isn't comfortable for all types of people, if you understand me."

    Once his little speech was done, he grabbed a bottle and four shot glasses. He didn't pour right away, only prepped to do so depending on their answer. "So what'll it be? Will you take your drinks and ask girls who are actually interested if they would like them? Or is this going to get complicated?" Now Icarus would wait, but not for long. He had other customers waiting and dealing with this mess was only backing up his workload. At least the other customers seemed to know what was up and weren't kicking up.

    Although Icarus had done everything he was supposed to, and maybe more, this seemed to only... exacerbate the situation. The moment his 'deal' left his mouth, the faces of those men became visibly peeved. The way their brows twitched and eyes widened made it clear that there was no longer space in their heads for reason, only something much worse.

    "Huh? What'd you say, punk?" the man glared, both of them abruptly standing up from their seats. The girls suddenly looked more surprised than disgusted, and even a little anxious. It was clear that they were no stranger with what was about to happen, but it didn't mean that they drew comfort from it.

    "Fuck your deal, man! Give us our fucking drinks or we'll fuck you up!" the other one challenged, although there wasn't much room for discussion.

    As their voices grew louder, Ahote had no choice but to give his undivided attention to the situation unfolding. Maybe he was being a bit cruel in letting his employee handle it on his own. After all, it wasn't a test or anything, and he wasn't expecting his charming bartender to prove anything by any choices he was going to make this night, but one couldn't help but wonder what others would do in a situation he had been so accustomed to. That and, well, it was amusing to some extent.

    "Is everything alright, Mr. Laspor?" one girl leaned back from her booth, giggling as Ahote was beginning to pass by.

    Ahote stopped and paused, smiling his soft, deep smile. "Pardon?"

    The girl rolled her eyes and pointed at the bar. "The boys over there. Looks like trouble~" Ahote followed her gaze, realizing that the water boiling over there was beginning to alert the nightclub. It was a fun show for everyone except the people who had to stop it, so it made sense that the girl seemed mildly amused to have found such a scene.

    "Of course, everything is fine. Anything else I can do for you?"

    Icarus



    So fluffing out his feathers, so to speak, hadn't worked, eh? Icarus heaved a disheartened sigh, deflating back into his more lax posture. His eyes slowly shifted between the two angry faces screaming at him, briefly wondering if this job would be worth the hassle. He wasn't a lazy man, but he was one that liked to take the path of least resistance if he could. Perhaps the one thing the two dunderheads wanted was to get him angry, but they'd likely strike out as hard on that as they had with these girls. All Icarus was thinking about was when he'd get to take his break to smoke and chill for a moment. To get there he'd have to resolve this once and for all, wouldn't he? Rubbing the back of his neck while his mind wandered, it looked like he'd zone out, but really he was hatching something of a plan.

    "Yeah, alright, just hold on," he told the two, meandering down the bar and filling the drink orders that had been waiting on him since the arrival of the party predators. He apologized for the the wait and the commotion, wiping down the dribbly counter as he moved from one occupied stool to another, offering easy smiles to satisfied customers. Maybe being ignored for the extra time it'd take him to rise to their challenge would cool them off, but he wasn't holding his breath. Tipsy, horny men high on testosterone and assholery never went down without a hard knock. He wasn't jazzed on being the one to do it, but it was what it was.

    Finally pouring the four drinks the aggro-bros wanted, he picked them up and headed out from behind the bar. He walked to the entrance of Boomslang before he stopped and turned, holding them out to the standing men from afar. "Come on then. What are you waiting for? Come get your drinks."

    Oh, brother! The situation was mildly amusing until Ahote had caught wind that Icarus was meaning to confront the belligerent men outside, one way or another. He was charming till the very end with his offers, but Ahote couldn't afford a fight to break loose on his property, and a fight was surely inevitable even if Icarus was avoiding it profusely. Besides, if Icarus humored these hooligans any longer, Ahote would surely end up manning the bar himself.

    "What the fuck?" one man glared at Icarus.

    "Screw that! We'll fuck you up right here, bro! Step up!" The braver man began to step forward, heading not for the exit, but for Icarus himself. He began to raise his fist, but before anything else could happen, Ahote found a place to insert himself.

    "I'm sorry, but I need him a little more than you two, tonight." Ahote sighed, tapping the rather rambunctious one's shoulder. All three of the men were larger than him, but he seemed just as hard-faced and stiff as... any other time. "That said, you both need to leave."

    It was clear in both the sternness and hardness of his voice that the charm and pleasantness he had exuded earlier and dwindled into impatience and unfriendliness. He had killed a lot of time just serving the front of the house, and they were about halfway through the night, so to have to deal with this was certainly a buzzkill, and got the hooligans fired up to some extent.

    "Who the hell are you? What are you? A zombie? Fucking loser."

    "Get your nasty-ass hands off of me, punk! Who are you?!" he ripped his shoulder away from Ahote's gentle grip, staring at him with this baffled look on his face. Both of them looked puzzled and ready to jump him as they were to Icarus.

    Ahote sighed through his nostrils and shook his head. "The owner, and his boss."

    "Huh?! You're really kicking us out, then?!"

    "We're gonna tell our whole crew about this shitty club! You and your dumbass fuckin' bartender can't do shit!"

    "Is that how it is?..." Ahote responded quietly. Although it might have appeared that he was dwelling on their threats, their words were simply going through one ear and out the other. Listening to their babbling was exhausting, and it was beginning to show. As usual, the hooligans didn't seem to like this or have the reasoning skills to understand why he looked to irritated by their very company. Needless to say, they responded with violence—or that was what was expected. "To be blunt, you can either leave now, or we'll have to get the Rune Knights involved. I'd suggest the former."

    "Huh?!"

    "Tch! Fuck off, man! We're outta this shithole anyway! C'mon, dude." one man grabbed the other, stuffing their hands in their pockets with an angry, reluctant look on their faces. Although both seemed particularly ready to brawl, it was a particularly bad location to do so. Capital Crocus was... well, the capital. Even at night, the Rune Knights were especially active. Now that Ahote was off of their watchlist, even he was willing to rely on their adamant supervision every now and then. On their way out, the especially brave man shoved his shoulder into Icarus's as he passed, glaring at him, while the other spat at his feet.

    "Bitch." he huffed, and that was the end of it. It didn't make as much of a scene as some might have hoped, but it was enough to turn a few heads in the crowd. Fortunately, the club quickly returned to a sense of normality, but Ahote, however, was feeling especially exhausted now that the work had finally caught up with his fragile body.

    The silver-haired man sighed as his golden eyes floated onto Icarus. There was a moment of silence between them before Ahote had said anything, and when he did, he walked over and gently patted his cheek in a firm, reassuring manner. "Don't worry—I'm sure you would've kicked their ass, yes? Go take a break if you need to." Ahote didn't smile, but his voice was equal parts thoughtful as it was quiet and firm. After that, he went back to serving in the front, and this would continue until closing.

    . . . [4:50 A.M.] . . .

    It was ten minutes before closing, and the club was empty of everyone except the two remaining team members—Ahote and Icarus. It was early in the morning now, at a time where most establishments were closed or well on their way of doing that. Although Icarus wouldn't be around for Boomslang's second opening, the doors would reopen in just two short hours, and back to work, Ahote would go. Sure enough, he hardly had time for himself nowadays, but at least he was more than financially stable. Well, that was almost true. After recent developments, Ahote had developed a sort of eye for things he wants, and surely enough, they were easy to spot since he knew what he was looking for.

    Sitting alone at a bar stool, Ahote held a cup of lukewarm water in a mixed drink glass. Strangely enough, he hated drinking alcohol despite operating a bar and being quite good at mixing drinks. He just never tasted them.

    He was decompressing after a night of hard work, dwelling in his elusive thoughts. He wasn't entirely sure where Icarus was, as he was far too tired to even look. But, sure that he was somewhere nearby, perhaps preparing to leave, Ahote quietly seized the opportunity.

    "Your pay will make it worth it, you know. I can assure you of that."

    Icarus



    Once that long uproar was finally put to rest, Icarus sighed heavily. He wasn't a terrible fighter, but two on one hadn't looked good for him. Even if he'd won, he'd have come out with some bumps. He wasn't sure how it looked that his boss had to come ultimately end the situation, but he thanked him nonetheless. The elbow and spit he received on their way out didn't even ruffle him, a testament to his nearly endless patience. One of the drinks spilled a little on his vest, though, which meant he'd smell like alcohol for the rest of the night. Shame, he'd been doing so well. "I think I might take a small one. My vest is all wet," he said with a crooked smile to the smaller man.

    Once he was on his own out back in the alley, he hurriedly soaked the liquor out of his vest while having a smoke. When he returned, he was somehow even more chill than he normally was, but completed the rest of the night's drinks as if he'd been bartending much longer than he actually had.

    . . . . . . . .

    Icarus had just put a mop back in its closet and was slowly walking back toward the bar when he heard his boss speak. "Oh, I'm sure it is," he said easily as if he hadn't been wondering that exact question hours before. Those particular dumbasses might be gone, but surely more would arise on the regular. Maybe now that it was quiet, he should get some clarification. He took a seat near Ahote, leaving an empty stool between them. Truth was, he was actually pretty tired. He tried not to show it, but his feet were sore and his shoulders ached from the stress of quick orders and telling so many charming stories. How could he possibly make it all the way back to Ace of Spades? Angling his body toward the pale man down the bar, he rested his cheek the palm of his propped arm, half-lidded eyes observing his new acquaintance. "So, is that your preferred policy with unruly customers? Should I just kick them out once they get mouthy or is there some sort of system?"

    Neither of them really showed it, but it was clear that the air was heavy with working men's weariness. The stereos had been silenced, and there was not a sound or a peep except for their own breaths. It was a tranquility that could make you self-conscious, but in this case, Ahote was actually enjoying the opportunity to chat.

    "My regulars understand, but if you see such a scene unfold again, you kick them out. I have no tolerance for that sort of behavior." Ahote sighed through his nose again, it now becoming clear that it was a sort of habit of his. However, as he paused, and chuckled softly and glanced at Icarus, simpering. "Well, except for tonight. Forgive me for not getting involved sooner, but I couldn't help but wonder what you'd do..."

    It was true, to some extent. Ahote was always a busybody, known for his initiative and work ethic. It was no doubt that he'd be the first to intervene in anything unsightly. Perhaps a characteristic of his persona or an old habit of his time as the Guildmaster of Basilisk Fang, Ahote was stoic and blunt about what he wanted and what he didn't... except now, of all times. He almost couldn't find the words to exchange with Icarus, despite wanting to be humored in a conversation after a stressful shift.

    "Are you in a guild, Icarus?" he asked, continuing to look at him with his mellow, interested countenance, "Or better yet—are you a sorcerer?"

    Icarus



    "I'm glad my failed attempts to solve the situation amused you," Icarus replied, and though the words themselves seemed like a moody quip, his tone and face said otherwise. If anything he was amused as well, imagining how it must have looked from Ahote's perspective. The new guy, unsure exactly what to do, trying to muddle his way though a tense situation without losing business and ticking off his new boss. Trying to lure aggravated patrons away from the girls and out of the bar with drinks hadn't been a solid plan.

    It was nice to see the icy many crack a smile, though. He hadn't thought it possible for anyone other than paying customers' eyes. It made him feel a little better about the pale man, seeing a bit of warmth. His own eyes crinkled at the corners as he smiled a little wider for a moment. He might be a bit distant, but his aloofness wasn't cold like most people. He didn't mind having friends, he just tended to hold them at an arm's length and wasn't too chatty about his past.

    The silence that briefly passed between them might have seemed awkward, but Icarus didn't think it so. It was natural, especially between two people who barely knew each other. Shifting on his stool, he began to unbutton his black vest, just happening to be shrugging it off as Ahote brought up guild status and magic. How fitting he should ask just as the holes in the back of his button-up became visible. "I just recently joined Sabertooth, actually. I needed a job to pay for my room at the inn," explained the golden man, rolling his achy shoulders and cracking his neck with a small whinge. "I guess I'm a sorcerer, though not a very useful one," he grinned, angling himself in a way that when his big red wings unfurled from his back he wouldn't smack Ahote with them. He gave them a playful flap before they settled against his back, seeming natural there. They were a comfort to Icarus for some reason. "It's called Nature Soul. I can do different parts of animals so far, but it's not very cooperative," Icarus laughed lightly, acting as though his issues and weaknesses didn't bother him in the slightest. "I can fly really well, so that's all I care about!"

    Sabertooth, huh? Ahote had a distaste for legal guilds and their wizards, as they often exuded sickeningly bright attitudes, and their moral compasses seemed deluded, but Ahote had little qualms with Sabertooth. They were giants in the guild community and were one of few who had maintained some clout and renown even after all of these years. Unlike Fairy Tail, they had a consistently good reputation among countrymen. He knew that it was inevitable for men like Icarus to join his staff team, but Ahote was pleased to have acquired such a charming and easygoing character. It would be... amusing, to say the least.

    "I see, but is that really all you care about? Men like you..." Ahote looked at Icarus, "...usually have bigger burdens then they let on." he said, now looking at his wings. He'd be lying if he said that he didn't want to touch them, and was wondering whether or not they'd be soft or rough. Could he pluck a feather out, and if he did, would it hurt?

    There was a pause after he said there, in which he'd place his glass down and walk over to the other side of the counter. There it was—that hard face of his, but it wasn't as if he were upset. It was as if that unfriendly expression was multi-purpose. Right now, he was deep in thought, wondering what he wanted to do with Icarus's company. Surely enough, he wanted to touch his wings, but he couldn't help but seize the opportunity to pry.

    "Coffee or alcohol? Humor me, will you?"

    Icarus



    Icarus' eyes constricted just the slightest when burdens were mentioned. Of course he had them. Whether they were heavier than anyone else, he wasn't sure, but there had been a time when they'd almost crushed him under their indomitable weight. He had the scars to prove it. Would he embellish on them with this new acquaintance of his? Not a chance. Icarus had no plants to ever speak of the things he'd been through, not to a stranger and not even to a friend. There was that distance again, like being close to a flame's warmth but being unable to ever touch it. "Men like me? I'm nothing special. Everyone has burdens, but they don't seem so big way up in the sky as long as I leave them on land," he shrugged with his usual lazy simper, finger picking at one of the leather cuffs latched tightly at his wrists.

    Using Ahote's interest in his wings as an easy way to deflect away from his own baggage and also as a way to see if he could jostle the hard expression back off his pale face, Icarus stretched one wing out and around his body. It reached across the counter to where his boss now stood, wiggling in temptation. "How about both?" Icarus answered concerning beverage, not especially good at decisions. After a brief pause, he grinned. "Would you like to touch them, Ahote? People usually do," he added, coming across as almost impish. The feathers would be smooth and light to the touch, and especially fluffy toward the base of each one.

    "Both?" Ahote tilted his head, puzzled by the request. There was a pause in his speech, and it was clear that he was trying to determine whether or not he heard Icarus correctly and if he did, whether or not he should adhere to such an indecisive request. Pondering his choice of drink, Ahote was longingly staring at Icarus's wings until the man himself had invited him to touch it.

    "...Is it that obvious?" Ahote suddenly covered his mouth with his hand, his cheeks flushing slightly, embarrassed by his overt interest in his wings. For a man who presented himself as stoic and unreadable, Ahote seemed easily flustered when people could read his thoughts or emotions like an open book. Regardless, he'd seize the opportunity to grope Icarus's feathery features by walking back around the counter and standing behind him.

    His hands ran over the boney rim of the wings, letting his fingers graze down the wall of feathers with a gentle touch, feeling it across his fingertips. Again, his cheeks lit up. It just so happened that Ahote enjoyed all things soft, fuzzy, and animal-like, and had a difficult time hiding it when distracted. Although his complexion was tinged with pink, his eyes remained narrow and dagger-like, almost as if glaring. It was an odd countenance he was wearing, for sure. What was a moment of innocent awe had suddenly become more intense when Ahote abruptly pulled on the joint of his wing, closest to his back, practically just yanking it!

    "Does it hurt when I do this?" he leaned over his shoulder, looking at his face from an angle. Judging by the purely quizzical look on his countenance, it was certain that he genuinely wanted to know, and genuinely found it fitting to yank on it as he had.

    Icarus



    Now that the drink was put on hold, the winged man was more than a little amused at his boss's antics. His grin widened as the stoney man blushed, abashed by being so obvious but not so much that he wouldn't give into his curiosity. The slender man slipped from around the bar and disappeared behind him. Icarus sat still and unguarded as Ahote entered his personal space. Feeling foreign ringers run through his feathers so intently was actually different than usual, nudging golden brows up ever so slightly as he noted the sensation. Most were timid and touched only a couple of feathers before they were sated. Ahote was just going right in, brushing down the length and even around the hollow bones that made up the frame. It was fortunate that Icarus wasn't one to get weird about being touched in general, so he thought nothing of it. Ahote could take all the time he needed back there. It was actually a bit relaxing.

    Relaxing until there was that yank that he felt all the way into his human shoulder and spine. "Ah!" he exclaimed, not loudly, but in surprise nonetheless. It did hurt, obviously, so he'd be honest. "Haha, a little, but nothing I can't handle," the good-natured man creased, angling his face to meet the quizzical one peeking around him. The proximity of Ahote and the rather precious expression he sported splashed pinkish heat to his own cheeks. Icarus was charming, yes, but that didn't mean he couldn't get a little flustered from time to time. His skill was in not letting it turn him into a buffoon. "You're a little rough, aren't you?" Icarus observed, grinning. He didn't mind, sometimes he preferred it, it was just that his wings were a little sensitive being so close to his spine and all.

    It hurt. Of course it did. Why wouldn't it? After having done it, the silver-haired man realized that he was wanting more to provoke a reaction out of him more than an honest answer, and judging by the surprised yelp he made, it did the trick.

    For a moment, their eyes locked, and Ahote was interested in his face. His hair was unbearably messy, eyes were long and sharp, a pointy nose, and strips of fuzz along his jaw to resemble what Ahote thought was a beard. Even after leaving his body unattended, Ahote was never able to grow facial hair himself. Regardless, he enjoyed studying Icarus, but not so much that he had forgotten the task in which he was given.

    "To some, perhaps..." said Ahote, pulling away his face and looking at the nape of Icarus's neck and his wings one last time before meandering back around the counter and shuffling through shelves for the things he needed for the coffee and cocktail, "The way I see it, I do what needs to be done to get certain results. That sound you just made—" he slightly peered over his shoulder, looking at him with that stoic expression, "—I'm satisfied."

    After that, he resumed the process of brewing his drinks. He was nearly an expert in this craft, creating the mixtures with a master's efficiency and attention to detail. Although the pressure of serving his customers quickly was gone, Ahote seemed consistently adamant in his quick delivery. In only a few minutes, two glasses were slid in front of Icarus; one cup of an aromatic coffee brew, and another glass of a Rum Martinez.

    He wiped his hands on a clean rag before gently placing it on the counter and looking at Icarus again. "Here. The beans are from Bellum, and that drink is a Rum Martinez. However, if you can't hold your liquor, don't drink it." Ahote leaned onto the counter again, carefully pushing the drink forward, "I'm not entirely sure what I'd do with you if you passed out here."

    Ahote merely wanted a response from him? "Mm, I see. If you wanted me to scream, you could've just asked," he teased as his wings were released and the pale man reclaimed his position behind the bar. This one was an oddity, but Icarus had always had a natural curiosity about such things. He seemed almost otherworldly, which given his religious views, both scared him and thrilled him. While most might not take the time to unravel the secrets, Icarus found it rewarding most of the time. He was also a big waster of time these days, so he had time to investigate any shiny thing that caught his gaze.

    Watching his employer work put his own fledgling skills to shame. He hadn't intended to have a coffee and cocktail as two separate things when he said "both" before. He'd expected a splash of Baileys or bourbon. He'd not say anything though, watching the man work with a deftness that Icarus did not yet possess. Much more practice was needed to reach this level of speed and efficiency. Once he had received a delicious looking drink and coffee combo, he greedily picked up the warm drink and huffed in the scent. It seemed familiar, but he blowed on the steam nonetheless and was about to take a sip just as Ahote elaborated. The beans were from Bellum. That explained the familiarity he'd picked up, and also his sudden disinterest in it, though Ahote wasn't privy to the info. Sharp eyes sharpened further for a fleeting second, and he slowly set it down and turned on the mixed drink instead. "Rum Martinez, hm? Now this sounds interesting," Icarus said, deflecting from the coffee from his rejected home. The drink came with a warning, which was cute. Imagine a bartender who couldn't hold his liquor. "I'm no iron liver, but I won't pass out from a single drink, no matter how strong," boasted the golden man, raising it to his lips. "Unless you drugged it," Icarus added, though it seemed he wasn't serious or at least didn't care as he winked and took a drink. It was actually very delicious! Color him impressed.

    Ahote started that morning feeling refreshed and anticipant of his easygoing employee, Icarus. Those after-shift exchanges were brief but quickly became numerous. What started as the occasional drink after work almost became routine, as far as Ahote saw it. The way he carried himself and his words, how refined his body appeared, and how he acted as if he were living in the moment—Ahote was enamored with him. Of course, he was never one to vocalize these sorts of observations, but he did make them, and until recently, he never acted on them either.

    [5:15 A.M.]

    Their shifts had just ended, and Boomslang was closed for another two hours. For Icarus, he wouldn't have to step foot in the place for a little while, but Ahote knew that he wouldn't even have time for a nap if he were to uphold his listed schedule—and Ahote was dedicated to keeping his own word, in this case. He knew that consistent sleep was but a luxury to him, but choosing what to do with his free time was something he had more control over than he thought he did, and after sleeping on the idea, he knew exactly what he wanted.

    "It was a busy night, so I know that you must be tired... but..." Ahote said, softly. Alone at the bar, Ahote and Icarus were with each other's company. A cup of coffee and a new drink was in front of Icarus, as was now usual for their after-work exchanges. However, this time, the stoic man was leaning behind his employee, his face close to his neck and eyes wandering from feature to feature. He was much closer than all the other nights, and this time he had other things in mind. His voice trailed off as his mind wandered away from the conversation and fixed to Icarus's body.
