callipygos: (from the seafoam)

seattle, wa - 2013

There's a chill seeping into the air, and a fog drifting down from the mountains, and everywhere in this city, people look out at the damp streets and roll their eyes over the sudden absence of summer.

On this particular night, at a lone stool in a darkened bar, there sits a woman with hair as golden as a sunrise.

Her drink is mostly water by this time. People turn to look at her, men and women both, but even the men seem to know not to speak to her. There is a stage taking up one end of the space, on which a girl in blood-soaked white is doing a slow striptease.

The burlesque is pretty good tonight. With Stephen King as source material, Aphrodite wasn't quite sure what to expect, but she thinks the girl dancing Carrie is doing a lovely job. It's hard to be sexy when covered in pig's blood.


... At least, unless your significant other is into that.

Meanwhile, the ice in her glass continues to melt.

"I'm not gonna dignify that one with a response."

The girls are plenty nice. So are the boys. He's not blind!

"This does seem a little grittier than what I associate you with."

John, behind the bar, slides the plastic glass full of bourbon and bitters across the counter to Epimetheus. "Cosmo, right?"
2020sight: (Definitely humouring you.)

"... You're going to make me regret buying you a drink."

"All the time."

But he's pulling out cash anyway.

"What the hell are you doing this far north?"

"Does she still put out?" he wonders.

"You know eastern Washington's good farming country?" he says, waving a hand vaguely towards the street. "Lot of apples."

That's . . . sort of answer.
2020sight: (Epimetheus)

He folds himself onto the stool next to her, which causes a couple of other patrons at the bar to make passive-aggressive faces at having to lean to watch the show around him. (Carrie has left the stage covered in red glitter and fake blood, and a person of indeterminate gender in a bear suit has taken her place.)

"Auntie Dem would probably be a lot prouder if I was around for the growing part and not just the picking part." He picks up his drink. "Υγεία μάς."

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-09-29 05:53 pm (UTC)(link)
"But what about you?" he asks, curious. "You doing anything around here to be proud of?"
2020sight: (I has a flavor!)

Epimetheus tsks.

"That's rough, buddy."
2020sight: (Definitely humouring you.)

"It can be a real bitch."

"Clever's not an epithet I get saddled with often."
2020sight: (Now that's interesting.)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-09-29 06:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Epimetheus cracks up.

"Yeah, I bet!"

"Hey, keep it down!" hisses a patron.
2020sight: (Classical)

"You're a menace,"Epimetheus mutters, still grinning.
