PostSubject: After Hours [Closed]   Sun Sep 16, 2018 1:40 am

She never really thought she'd find herself here. Even after the headache of setting everything up before the new school year, and the disaster that was when she let Idyn mess with her chemistry set, drinking wasn't something that ever came to mind. For many of the other teachers it had, and when she walked in she was less than surprised to see them all there. A few rapid blinks cleared her blurred vision of the haze of liver issues, along with the disapproving mom-smirk that came along with it. It had been one hell of a week, and with her children old enough to be left on their own, a bit of time to herself could most certainly be taken.

Still in what had become her signature lab coat and heels, Taimi took a spot up at the counter. It didn't take long for the bartender to come by and ask what she wanted, and within another thirty seconds she had a martini in her hand. The fiery tingle of alcohol stung her nostrils just a bit as the drink hovered beneath her lips, proof that she definitely didn't drink often. A gentle chuckle came from the raven-haired woman as she took a sip, the hint of sour lemon satisfyingly hitting her tongue. As her eyes scanned the small crowd there on the Friday night, she was truly shocked to see who all was there. People who she never would have pinned as drinkers happened to show up, but at the same time, she couldn't help but wonder if they were there for the exact same reason that she was.

The pub had been one of his new favorite places as of late. At first, it felt nice to get out of the house. His entire life had revolved around work and watching the kids for so long, but with Idyn and Cailin back in school again, and Jackson starting his first year in Beata boarding, he quickly realized he didn't need to up his Dad ante quite so much and had way more free time on his hands. Admittedly, it was great at first, but he quickly realized how weird it felt having the house empty to him. It dawned on him that this was the first time in his life he'd ever actually lived alone. So, what else was there to go except go to the bar and make friends? Or at least find someone interesting to see or talk to.

And speaking of interesting people to see and talk to Taimi had to be one of the last women in town he'd expect to see at a casual place like this, not to mention still in uniform. Which was fine to him. It wasn't a big deal because she was the mother of his children or anything, just because they weren't together anymore, things between them were still cool, right? Totally cool. Fucking fantastic.

He never really talked to her much outside the kids, but the kids were older now, so...

Preston shrugged his shoulders and put on a smile, calling out to her. "Taimi," He gave her a lazy wave and stepped up. "Since when were martinis your sort of thing?"

She really should have expected to see him there. For some reason, she didn’t.

“Hey Pres.” A friendly smile came to the woman’s lips as he came over to chat, a gentle chuckle resonating at his question. “Apparently, since this week.” He most certainly knew she didn’t drink. Even in the time they had been apart- not once had there ever been a bottle of alcohol in her house. It most certainly was another case when they did live together, despite her best efforts. The two most certainly weren’t on bad terms, but that didn’t mean she didn’t find it awkward. Anymore they honestly didn’t speak outside of their kids, so to be in an actual social situation felt... weird. Not exactly the bad kind of weird, but the one that meant she’d probably be in for more than just one drink.

Her metallic hand tapped against the glass, the distinct sound giving an almost calming affect. “Setting up has been actual hell. Not to mention, it seems the new class has a bit of a chaotic flare.” Unintentionally, she had already began to ramble about the students. Taimi had been getting better about catching herself, and it seemed today was a good day. Before she got too far into rambling, she changed the subject. “How have things been for you? I haven’t seen you in awhile.”

He didn't know a lot of things about her, apparently. They both had such busy lives, he'd never been able to stop and ask her about how her teaching was going or what she did in her free time. As Pres noticed the light chime of her fingers against the table, he realized he'd never actually had been told what happened to her hand, other than she'd been in an accident a long time ago. It'd always felt too rude to ask, even for him. "Cheers to that," The brunette smirked, waving the bartender down and ordering a beer for himself.

"Well, we weren't exactly serene angels when we were in school either." Preston held back a small laugh, "You're doing hero's work, Taimi." The second he got his beer, he was quick to down several heavy gulps. How had he been? The house was quiet, but business was doing well, the kids were still alive, so he supposed he couldn't complain. "Alright. I get to share a drink with some cute, old friend of mine - so I'd say that's one evening made."

It was really hard not to give a gentle laugh at Preston's comment. No, they most certainly weren't angels during their time. "Ah, I suppose. Just doing what needs to be done - someone has to teach them Chemistry." It sounded so boring and just old coming from her lips, Taimi just hung her head and laughed. She shook her head, dismissing the rather plain notion. Leaning back and contemplating things, she honestly spent little time on Beata's campus. She was out living the life of an olympic athlete, all the while having to hide her gift every time she glanced at a player who was still out there performing despite having some serious tendon or bone damage.

Another sip of the martini, and it almost hurt her to watch him gulp down the beer so quickly. So much for having gotten him mostly out of that habit. Then again, if she had been an alcoholic and presented right in front of beer, she wouldn't have been able to help herself either. A sweet laugh came from the heterochromatic at his comment, a gentle blush forming at her cheeks. "Always the charmer." It started to become a habit to sip on the alcoholic liquid, almost a part of the conversation as drinking water was for her. Finishing it up and setting it back onto the bar, she flagged down the bartender for a glass of water. Old habits died hard. "Can definitely agree the company is pretty sweet. There's much worse people to be talking to here." She eyed around the bar, making gentle motions towards one or two other teachers and guardians that she knew that definitely weren't very pleasant drunks.

Allowing herself to truly look at the brunette though, her eyes subconsciously scanned his frame. Her gift went into overdrive, making sure he was in good health. A habit of hers for those she cared about, especially her children. "Things at the restaurant going alright, though? Getting enough sleep?" Her eyebrow perched in accusation. If there was anything to be learned, when she pointed out something, it was more of a statement than a question. The dark gray haze around him told her that he was definitely at least somewhat sleep deprived, and it was hard not to show at least some concern for the Raichu.

She always got a certain look to her when she was using her gift. Preston had always wondered if she was aware of it, unease always sketched artfully into her face. "Well, I had to watch some poor blank kid bite off more burger than he could handle and his date had to pay for it... So that kept me up a few days laughing." Ah, yes. Things were relentless in his old fashioned bar. But even as he joked, he knew it was no use in trying to throw her any white lies. "I'm fine, it's just this time if year is hard... everyone is going back to school and shit, you know." He chewed away at the inside of his cheek and took another sip of beer. "You worry too much about me."

As soon as she realized just what she was doing, the concern on Taimi’s face faded away and a more light-hearted expression replaced it. A light laugh sounded at the rather unfortunate situation that seemed to play out for the teen Preston mentioned, imagining the embarrassment that would have come from such a situation. “Yeah, that would give me a bit of a laugh too.” She knew exactly what he was mentioning - the Croftburger Challenge. She had been beggen by Idyn for years after seeing Cailin do it to give it a shot, and well, let’s just say the mother was rather reluctant to allow her daughter to do so. A sigh of defeat and a nod of understanding came in response. ”I wish I could say I didn’t know.” Another gentle chuckle of laughter. ”Do I? I like to think I worry just enough.”

Playfully, Taimi stuck out her tongue for a few seconds as she waved down the bartender for another martini. It most certainly was a night that didn’t happen very often. Taimi drinking alone was a situation that didn't happen very often. Multiple drinks? Yeah, some shit went down during the week.
