log: eddie/sasha drunk theater time
Who: Eddie & Sasha
Where: the theater
What: using a rune despite being drunk
Eddie wasn't such a good church-going boy anymore, not like he was in New Jersey. See, in Jersey, he was the god father of like ten Italian babies and every great social gathering happened before or after church. Eddie remembered pleading with Stephanie to have the wedding at the church and he was so glad when she relented. And then there was Muerte, who Eddie proclaimed to be the Santa Muerte and he personally prayed at "her" shrines built with thrift store wedding dresses, dead dumpster flowers, skulls and candles that smelled like roses. Once he moved to Repose, all of that kind of changed. It wasn't that Eddie didn't believe in a higher power, he just met too many of them. Repose was full of the unexplained and there was no way in Eddie's mind that one religion had it all figured out.
But, he had to check out these weird dinosaur flowers. He and Sasha went dressed like rappers from the 90's and intended to have a grand old time at some snake-oiler's expense. But, Eddie couldn't come up with a logical reason why the flowers could stay so fresh looking. Worse than that, he was surrounded by a bunch of marks and didn't have the evidence to prove them wrong. Maybe they were right? Maybe god really did have something to do with it? Maybe it was something else? Whatever it was, Eddie didn't want to stick around and see. He had rolled the dice with higher powers before and look where that got him.
So, the two hustled out of there and headed towards Sasha's theater to get wasted. He had originally suggested his place, but the theater had popcorn and movies and it was like being a big kid who suddenly had free reign over the adult world. The two got properly drunk through drinking games involving vodka-pong and Mystery Science Theatering bad movies when Eddie remembered the rune.
"Oh!" He exclaimed, laying on a row of seats as they watched the 1980's Swamp Thing on the big screen. "The rune. We got to do the rune. I have it-" Eddie searched his VERY COOL AND NOT LAME fanny pack circa 1994 and then pulled out a simple looking rock with a blue marking on it. "Let's get this over with, shall we?" He slurred a bit with his trademark charming smile. "This is the best time to do it." It probably was not, but Drunk Eddie was sure of it.
