Who: Alice, Boo and a run in with Caleb
What: Bar date! Classy >_>
When: Wednesday night
Rating: Medium or high for language and or violence possibly?
So maybe it was a last minute thing, but Boo was bored, and it had been a while since he'd seen Alice. A while was really only about two weeks or so, but he really was starting to like having her around, so he was disappointed that their schedules clashed a little. Yeah, that's right. Disappointed. Because he liked her. A lot. Was that so weird?
Anyway, his intention was to take her to a baseball game that evening, but since he hadn't exactly planned ahead, and all the good seats were taken, they'd settled for the next best thing: an evening at a crowded sports bar near Yankee stadium. It wasn't romantic or anything, but it was fun, and frankly, before he had to ultimately introduce her to his siblings, he wanted to know if she could hang. It was kind of important.
So there they were, a couple beers and several innings in. And not really watching the game, because it was somewhat difficult to see with the crowd in the way. The place was packed, but Boo had managed to get Alice a seat at the bar. Unfortunately, he'd given his up to a middle aged woman in a jersey with flaking face paint and a loud laugh. He was standing in between them and while he was a little squished, he was having a pretty good time.
He was in the middle of ordering another round when it dawned on him, "You know," Boo had to project a little over that lady's cackle, "I think this is the first time I've been out without Scout or Gem in a year." It was a strange fact to admit, but it had just struck him, and he felt the need to share. "It's nice," he added.
