She said loudly over the music. The smile then reappeared on her face as she sat down on a bar stool.
“How’s it been?!”
(Sorry for the crappy post. Still kind of sleepy. x_x)
Galtem never found himself more in need of alcohol, life wasn’t really playing for his side. Always with damn relationship problems, people problems, and now he has one more problem in his life. Caleb Manzenli, that boy will drive Galtem insane, if all kids are like that, then he doesn’t wish to have any children. Not like he had that in mind either. Caleb was just too troublesome, and now Galtem found himself stuck, that he can’t be that immature and party guy like before, now he needs to settle down, and be mature to be able to take care of Caleb. Its not easy for him, even if he had somebody else to help him, it still wouldn’t be easy, now imagine him alone. Maybe that’s why he bought this disco, knowing he will have to stop the parties, and having fun, wasn’t really in his mind, so.
“I don’t know..”
Galtem finally snapped out of his thoughts, and heard Amelia telling him how many fingers he was seeing.
He told her with a smirk, as he wiggled his eyebrows, and pointed at her hand.
Somebody else showed up, another woman. Did this world only reproduced them, or what? But she didn’t seemed to give much attention to him or Amelia, she was more focus on Lizzy.
He looked down at his wrist, as he saw the time, still wondering if Caleb went to school like he told him to, or if he was just causing trouble around, again. Lets see how many times Galtem will save his skin.
“So! Are you coming to this party tonight?”
He asked Amelia, as he took a look over her. He was talking about the party he was throwing tonight. He owned now this disco, and he changed the whole style from it, so now he was going to throw a party and celebrate.
“Ha!…Wrongo…It’s four fingers….and.” She wiggled her thumb at him playfully, a smug expression on her face.“A thumb. Face it Galtem…you have had more than one whiskey.” Course this was just being silly, and Amelia could tell that he relaxed around her, but there was something on his mind. Amelia didn’t want to push it, cause everyone has their own things going on in life that really should be kept private. But she was Ms Super sleuth.
Taking up her drink, she noticed another girl rock up to the bar, fairly pretty and she knew Lizzy. Well, Lizzy was popular there was no denying that. When Galtem came to ask her if she was coming to the party, Amelia’s face lit up.
“You throwing a bash? Didn’t even know. Well, maybe I did know…and was too shy to ask about it.” Amelia bobbed her head and then took a sip of her cocktail through the curly straw. “I got nothing else on tonight, so…sure why not. I think Rattles my pet snake can handle one night without being stroked.”
“Ugha, almost there.”
He joked along, and allowed a chuckle to escape from his lips. It was true, he had more than one whiskey, counting the ones from yesterday, and the one he had before coming over here, and the ones he will have more during the day. Now Galtem was just waiting for her answer about the party, if she was coming or not.
He heard her answer, and smiled when she said she was too shy to ask about it. He wanted her to come, since it was always better having some friend at the party, some decent friend, not those drunk and high ones around him, that won’t really help on trying to change.
“You totally should come. Be my date, I will pay you the drinks.”
He told her as he rose his both hands in the air, before place them down. When he said the word date, it had no second intentions behind it, in fact, he had already done this with Amelia before, she was his “date”, and all they would do was just have fun, drink, and sometimes watching the others getting too drunk and do stupid stuff.
He drank the rest of the whiskey left in his glass, and the moment he placed the glass back down, he remembered about something.
He said with a surprised expression on, as he placed his elbow over the counter, and cover his mouth with his hand. He had totally forgotten today was the day Caleb was coming over, his mother was leaving him there. He had already seen Caleb before, when he was a baby, and lately his mother has been talking to him through the phone, texting and sending a picture of how Caleb looked like so Galtem could get to know more him, damn the boy looks like a teenager of Galtem, that even sent him a shiver through his spine. There goes Galtem, changing his entire life.
“I need to leave. I have a teen troublesome boy waiting on him at home.”
Galtem said, as he quickly pushed himself from the seat, he was about to leave, but then he thought. Why go alone? Maybe Amelia could help him out, not like she would do much to somebody she didn’t knew, but damn, it would be hard for Galtem face this kid and stuck it into his own mind, that now he was basically the boy’s father figure.
“Before I go. You want to come with me?”
He asked Amelia with a curious expression. If she said yes, they would already leave the building, get in his car and go over his place, if she denied, he would go alone.
“Sure…why not. I don’t have work tomorrow so, its all good.” Amelia replied, and she set down the drink, only to hear Galtem suddenly cursing. “Oh shit.” Did he realize that he asked someone else, maybe? Amelia stared at him with a “what?” expression and then she got the answer she sought and it was not what she was expecting at all.
“I need to leave. I have a teen troublesome boy waiting on him at home.” Amelia’s eyebrows practically disappeared up under her bangs. ~Galtem has a kid?~ This was getting more and more unusual. Opening and closing her mouth like a gold fish, not sure if she should even pry into this, she caught him ask if she wanted to go with him to go fetch this teen.
“Okay..I get you don’t want to leave this kid home alone. I’ll tag along.” Amelia answered, putting down a few bills to pay for her cocktail and giving Lizzy a wave. “Be back later I guess.” Amelia followed along behind Galtem to his car.
She shrugged when she asked how it had been. “I’ve been working at the same bar for the past one hundred-some years, so how do you think?” she asked with a laugh. Lizzy loved this job and would have quit it if she hadn’t. Galtem and Amelia talked about the party that night. She was excited for a little more excitement to happen around here. And she wasn’t just thinking about the party. Word of Galtem being back would certainly stir up some kind of drama. Suddenly Galtem was out of his seat as if he’d remembered something, she turned her attention from Nicole to Galtem as he said he had a teen troublesome boy waiting on him at home. She wasn’t sure she heard him correctly, but her vampire ears did not lie. Galtem had a teenager at home. It couldn’t be his though, could it? She wished she had someone to tell this too, but Nicole was the closest friend she had at the moment so she would have to settle for gossiping with her after they left. Amelia left money on the counter before the two of them left. She waved, before grabbing the bills off the counter. “So… that was interesting,” she said, sort of to Nicole, sort of to herself as she watched them leave.
Nicole was then curious on who they were.
“Who was the guy and girl?”
She said as she perked a brow again.
Galtem of course parked his car on the special spot from the owner, which stays behind the building, so nobody will disturb it. Now that he removed the keys and put inside the pocket of his jeans, he got out of the car, and waited for Amelia and Caleb, as soon as they done that, he just locked his car, and walked up to Caleb.
“Here. Try not get too drunk, I don’t wish to see you in hospital.”
While Galtem was saying this, he was searching for his wallet from the pocket behind his pants, and whenever he removed his wallet, he looked through it and took out two 100 dollar bills, and a 50. That would be enough to let him have his fun with other people as well. Lets see where was the limits of this kid. That’s all Galtem was doing, testing him, he wanted to see how far he would go, of course, later on, he would get scolded, and blah blah.
After giving him the money, Galtem put his wallet back into his pocket, and patted Caleb’s back a bit harshly. Removing his hand away from the boy, he just started to walk to the door along with Amelia. He open it, not really caring if Caleb would come along, he was grown up enough to know where the hell the door was placed. Now that they were inside, Galtem took a look around, and a quick smirk appeared upon his face. He was saying the lights, hearing the music, people dancing, getting drunk, having fun, partying, that’s what he wanted, but he wouldn’t be here, he would go to the VIP Room, which sometimes it can get more funny than stay in here with this all people.
He looked down at Amelia and moved his head like he was leading her the way to the VIP part from the disco. They first had to go upstairs, and in there, it had some glass doors, and glass walls, that would separate it from the other part of the disco. The VIP part wasn’t so calm, that’s where most of men spent his time, having strippers giving them lap dances and such, that’s why it had private rooms as well. But it also had a small bar, for you to get your drinks, and the music in here wasn’t so loud.
“What do you want to drink?”
He asked Amelia, as he headed to the bar.
William finally parked his car, as he leaned his back against his seat, and allowed a sigh to escape from his lips. He was tired from the all work, but he wouldn’t let that stop him from having some fun tonight, it has been awhile since the two of them went to some party, drunk and had some decent fun. He turned his head to look at her, and hear her mumbling about leaving Penny back at home alone, the dog would be fine, she seriously needed to stop treating it like a real person.
“It will be fine.”
He told her with a small smile before get out of the car and close the door behind him. Locking it, he took a look over Jennifer, she looked damn stunning, sexy, he loved seeing her in that red dress, and it made him chuckle while she pulled down a bit of her dress, to not show too much. He wasn’t wearing much, he was just wearing some jeans, and black shoes, a black shirt, and he had a jacket, but he left it in the car, he figured out it would be way too hot inside that building to be wearing a jacket.
William just followed his lover inside, and looked down at her hand, knowing very well she didn’t wanted to stay alone in here. He wrapped his fingers around hers, and held her hand tightly, as the both of them walked. He could read her lips, asking him about the drinks.
“Oh yeah, sure.”
He told her, while he walked up to the bar, dragging her along, since he didn’t let go off her hand. He didn’t knew what to order, should he start with something soft like a beer? Or something better, maybe vodka no? Or some shots.
“I will get some vodka, do you want a cocktail or?”
He leaned in, to whisper this words against Jennifer’s words, so she was able to hear him.
Jennifer only let go of his hand when they got to the bar and she had sat down, resting her head on her chin and smiling at him. She had to lean forward a little so he could talk into her ear before she drummed her fingers on her cheek as she thought about what she wanted. During her “dark time” before and after Galtem left the second time, she had spent a lot of time at this bar. She drank more than she should have, got angrier more easily, and danced with other men, though she never did more than that. It was a miracle William had stayed with her. She thought he was going to get completely fed up with her. Maybe even hoped it. The rejection was what fueled it and she had not known what she wanted. But one day Galtem left. She couldn’t say she was sorry that Selene and he had finally figured out that they were not meant to be, but it was very sudden. Things got a little bit better, but it was William who calmed her down a bit until she had a major break down one day. Jennifer admit her feelings for Galtem, which he had clearly already known though it couldn’t have been easy for him to hear it, and had cried and shouted quite a bit, screaming about how awful Galtem was. It was enough to scare anyone away, but instead William fixed her. The next day she’d woken up in his arms and been fine. That cued the decision to move in together. She could not have survived without waking up next to him everyday. After that she went back to being her strong self, but this time not needing to block anyone out to keep her strong outer shell. She had stopped drinking altogether at this point. Over time she was able to have a little and now is even able to get drunk occasionally, though she tries not to very much. “How about…vodka. We’re starting off strong tonight,” she decided with a nod. The smell of vampires, werewolves, and witches filled her nostrils. There seemed to be more supernaturals in this town that humans nowadays. Word got around quickly about who lived here bringing more and more supernaturals, young and old. She looked at the dance floor and smiled, making the decision that after she had a couple drinks in her, she would force William to dance with her.
