Eddie pushed the drink back over to her, pointing to his own, which was, regrettably, not the size of a bathtub, like he had asked for. It was just a normal pint of his own, but this would only be his first of the night. He did like being who he was, and even what his parents wanted wouldn't change that. He would surprise everyone when he went off to school, drunk as hell, and still managed to work his way through it with good grades. It would be like Hogwarts all over again, except he would get to go home at the end of the day.
"Why would it be an apology?" His voice sounded so clear, and small, like he wasn't quite as sure when he was sober. Which he wasn't. Eddie lived a majority of his life in a haze, it was what he was used to, what he loved, and this? The real world that wasn't all fun and games and drink after drink after snog was a bit scary.
Though, what did he have to prove to Susan? Nothing. She'd even gone and pushed her drink in front of him, encouraging him. Picking up his own pint, he downed it in almost one gulp. His hands were still shaking, but he sighed when he swallowed and put the glass down. "Costs too much to get trashed in a pub." Which was why he was usually already half-way there whenever he went out.
