"Everyone eventually has their due," Archie pushed around the glass between his hands.
"It’s confidential," He chuckled, "nothing interesting, really. I’m sure Honor will tell you soon."
"And you? why are you drinking on a Thursday night?”
"C’mon, you’re Archibald Hathaway, you don’t mope. You stare at people with that weird peasant look and make them cry."
The bartender slid Veronika’s drink in front of her, earning a ‘thank you’ nod from the young Italian as she tipped the glass back and swallowed much of the amber colored mixture in her glass.
"Well, odds are if Honor takes time out to tell me, it’s gotta be pretty interesting," Ronnie said with a smirk before shrugging her shoulders, "I don’t need a reason to drink, I just do because I’m bored. Or I see mope-y people and take it upon myself to make fun of them…or attempt to cheer them up if I’m feeling generous."

That sounds so beautiful. I will make it a reality one day.
Uh, well.. offended, for one, I guess. If something happened between us to stop being friends, it would have to be monumental. To act like it never happened, disregarding my feelings, would be kinda rude..
Was that the answer you were looking for..? Did I pass the cryptic test?
That means that I’m not an asshole because all I did as speak the truth and there is absolutely nothing wrong with speaking the truth.
Basically Jen came over the other day and was acting like things were…I guess normal would be the appropriate word to use. And after everything that happened it was just infuriating. Maybe I shouldn’t have yelled at her that way I did, but I couldn’t help it.
Do I look like a guy who’s gonna talk about issues and shit?
What do you want to drink?
I was unaware someone’s outward appearance determined whether or not they discussed their problems. But judging by the passive aggressive statement, I’m going to assume the answer in your case is no.
Captain and Coke, no ice.
Aw, I love you too Ronnie! But I’ve got to make the tester first, just to make sure I’m doing it right. How’ve you been, by the way? I saw you at the Awards but I wasn’t able to stop by and talk to you.
Hey, by all means, take your time. I got nothing else to do tonight. Roomie’s mom is spending some much needed time with her grandkids. And by grandkids I mean our 3 dogs and cat. Me? I’ve been good. Same old, same old. What about you? I swear, the Awards were so crazy I barely had time to get drunk.
Seems to be the theme of every night for me. Not that I mind much.
Join the club. If you buy me drink, I’ll sit here and pretend to be super enthralled with your problems and issues. Or you could just buy me a drink.

Only after football. Why? Why would you think you’re an asshole, love? Did something happen?
Oh shut up, Mrs. Brady.
Okay, let’s say hypothetically speaking that you and I stopped being friends. The reason is completely irrelevant, but just pretend with me for a moment. So, we’re not friends and we haven’t spoken in months. And then all of sudden I just come waltzing back into your life acting as if everything is okay and nothing’s changed.
Your reaction would be…?
Of course you are! You can be the taster since I’m making two. I might actually let you leave with one if you want.
Gracie, we can just tack this onto the already growing list of reasons why I love you so very much.
Um, maybe? I’ll just go ahead and tell you. There aren’t enough candy bars at the house and Nutella…I need more for this brownie dish I’m trying out. I found this really cool recipe on Pinterest.
If I stay and watch you cook, I’m allowed to eat some, right?
