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.
2020sight: (Now that's interesting.)

Epimetheus cracks up.

"Yeah, I bet!"

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

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

2020sight: (Definitely humouring you.)

"Do you, like, believe yourself when you say shit like that?"
2020sight: (Smirking)

"Some of us, that's all we've got," he says, cheerfully enough.
2020sight: (I has a flavor!)

"If it weren't for self-centeredness, I'd have no centeredness at all."

Beat.

"Made more sense in my head."
2020sight: (Definitely humouring you.)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-09-30 12:45 am (UTC)(link)
He rolls his eyes.

"Flatterer."
2020sight: (Epimetheus)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-09-30 01:18 am (UTC)(link)
". . . Yeah."

He cocks his head, considering her.
2020sight: (Creation)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-09-30 01:55 am (UTC)(link)
Epimetheus props his chin on his hand and frowns at her.

There is a silence that goes on juuuuust a little long.





"You seem tired."
2020sight: (Adelphoi)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-09-30 02:34 am (UTC)(link)
"You tired is special." He shrugs. "Unusual, anyway."
2020sight: (Epimetheus)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-09-30 03:02 am (UTC)(link)
"Because it's weird."

He drums his fingers on his cheek. "You're not being bitchy enough."
2020sight: (Adelphoi)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-09-30 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
... Epimetheus keeps frowning at her.
2020sight: (I has a flavor!)

[personal profile] 2020sight 2013-09-30 03:16 am (UTC)(link)
"What, the 'you seem tired because you're not being bitchy' line?"
