Alice

Carnival of Rust

Recommended Posts

Alice had grown up in England under a strict house because of what she was and what she meant to her family being their only female daughter. She was the only one that could continue their legacy which was a lot of pressure so as soon as she had enough money she took off and started traveling the world with just her backpack and her friend Lamont.

That's how they ended up in this shitty little town when the beater they bought in Florida broke down and the mechanic told them it would take more money than the car was worth to fix it.

So they were stuck there until they saved up enough cash to get a new one. So what was the best option? They went to a bar to drink.

The bar was fairly mellow when Alice and Lamont arrived, though that wouldn't last long. Shortly after a small pack of mostly young adults began trickling in, starting with a couple of groups that came in twos and threes. Soon after a crowd of seven came spilling through the door, most of which the bouncers let by without checking ID. Obviously the place had a lot of regulars. 

Almost everyone who turned up in the next twenty minutes congregated off in the same corner of the bar. The volume began to rise as more voices joined the fray. Somebody started up the juke box and AC/DC's Back in Black rumbled over the speakers. Behind the bar the tenders started moving a little quicker making drinks, though they soon had most of the crowd served. 

Seth pulled into the parking lot shortly after. He paused for a moment to peer at himself in the mirror, checking his grooming a final time before hopping out. As he got to the doors and pulled them open, the bouncer checking IDs stood and greeted him in a loud, booming voice, "REDFORD!" 

The majority of the people in the bar all turned toward the door and broke out into celebratory cheers. Seth grinned and lifted his arms up in acknowledgement, coming further into the room and embracing a woman that came up to him, "Hey," he laughed as she kissed him on the cheek. He pulled away to wade deeper into the crowd, greeting others as he pushed for the bar. 

"Happy birthday honey," the older woman behind it said as she set a beer and a shot down in front of him, "I don't think there's gonna be any reason to open a tab tonight," she winked at him. 

"Thanks," he smiled as he slid onto a bar stool by a young woman he didn't recognize. Seth reached for the shot and tossed it back as one of his cousins jumped onto the stool on his ither side.

Alice and Lamont's bickering about how to get enough money to buy a new car died down as more and more people started to arrive, instead Alice just continued to drink and be frustrated with her boyfriend. At the moment she felt a little vindictive so when the guy that the room identified as Redford and the woman identified as it being his birthday sat next to her she smiled to him.

"Happy Birthday," she said to him her British accent quite obvious.

"I'd love to," he grinned - she was gorgeous, why would he possibly say no? 

Seth didn't pay any attention to the other guy beside her. He hadn't heard the stranger speak, or he might have realized they were there together - not that it necessarily would have stopped him. 

He grabbed his beer and took a few swigs before nodding out to the floor, "Lead the way."

Lamont stewed staying put and downing the rest of his drink before he watched Alice get up and take the stranger's hand and lead the way out to the where the rest were dancing. She didn't hesitate to step in and grind her hips against him knowing full well that Lamont was watching from afar.
