[blind pig] dumb enough to try [luc]

“Well I can’t understand your accent, mate.”

Fflur repeated his words back to him, wiping her hands on the bar towel before throwing it over her shoulder. She leaned forward, her palms on the edge of the bar. “I dunno what to tell you. You can either drink the gin and tonic or you can wear it.” She rolled her eyes as he complained that he hadn’t ordered a gin and tonic -- again. “And I told you that we don’t serve old fashioneds here.” They had a bit of a standoff, the prepared g&t on the bar between them, before Fflur moved forward and swiped it back. “Now you don’t get any drink.”

It wasn’t terribly busy in the bar yet and they did serve old fashioneds there, or at least she assumed. Fflur had only been working there for about two hours now as part of some sort of trial period and all things considered, it was going well enough. She hadn’t followed through on her threat to throw a drink on anyone, at least. She leaned back against the back of the bar and sipped the ‘returned’ drink, nodding her head ever so slightly to the music.

It wasn’t a permanent gig, not at all. It wouldn’t even really be a temporary one for a couple weeks, not until school was out. But it was Saturday afternoon and Robin had endless rehearsals, so what else was she going to do? Fflur was planning to spend her summer here in the city, and as much as she’d like to see her boyfriend’s play five hundred times, it didn’t seem like the best use of her time. And might have also seemed a little clingy.

“Hey.” @Luc Bastien had just reappeared from some back room and she jumped on the opportunity to complain about the guy who was now ordering his old fashioned from the other bartender farther down the bar. “You’ve got a lot of rude customers here.” She tilted her head toward the man, regretting not making him take the drink with him. But, as she took another sip of it, she took that regret back.

"My stars and garters!"

The exclamation from the owner of The Blind Pig was sure to have cut through the thumping of the music from the gramophones just outside of the back room. Stumbling backward and nearly knocking over a crate of booze, Luc Bastien clasped a hand tight on top of his chest as if grasping for his heart to settle the fury of it's beating. With his other hand, he threw the prosthetic snake he'd stumbled upon while searching for a vial of potion from his top-secret cabinet as far as possible from his being. As it turned out, perhaps his secret cabinet was not so secret after all.

Once he'd assumed regular breathing, Luc crept toward the fake critter and kicked it with his own red, faux-snake boot, then a few more times for good measure. It wasn't alive, that he could derive. With a flick of his wrist, the imposter was floating in the air in front of him, dangling just in front of his nose. The wizard took a good look and breathed out a sigh of relief before grabbing the toy by the tail and parading through the entrance to the bar.

Before he could start pointing fingers, his newest barkeep, Fflur Blevins beat him to the punch. Impatiently, he waited for her to finish her observation, while holding the snake up to the height of his shoulder. Not nice customers? Luc paused. There were many things he tolerated in his establishment (many things), but rude customers simply was not one of them. Hazy blue eyes scanned the room but only saw familiar faces.

"You've been here ten minutes, mademoiselle!" He groaned. "Mathematically, there is no possible way that you've even spoken to a lot of people yet," He assured before taking another step forward to share his unfortunate encounter from moments before. "Or scientifically," He trailed off, his free hand dancing through the air. "Whatever," Luc shook his head with an exasperated sigh. Two hours felt a lot like ten minutes for him, anyway.

"Someone has got it out for me," The owner finally spat out, dropping the snake on the bar and nearly sending the drunk man at the end of the bar that had been there since noon flying from his barstool. "This was found in my cabinet," He explained, taking the drink from her hand without thought and taking a sip. He didn't drink but he certainly needed it. "This tastes like shit," Luc happily handed the mysterious mixture back to his friend with the peroxide hair. "Ten points from your score card," He cooed, referencing the fact that she hadn't been officially offered the job yet.
