Lucille was happy to come along with Henry and John as their escort/ guard. Besides she needed to get out of the society and devote a night to relaxation. John and Henry needed that to, and besides she'd get to see the adorable couple in subtle action, she couldn't pass that up! So she, John, and Henry was walking to a tavern near the society that she knew accepted magical beings. The trio was walking there since they couldn't take a cab there and if it was ten minutes away what was the point. Lucille was a few paces ahead of them, a spring in her step that matched Henry's. The trio soon made their way in to a side street and Lucille knocked on a door, the door opened to reveal a older woman, she smiled at seeing Lucille and John but glared at Henry, hand flexing. "Why tis zhere a human?"
"He's my mate," John said stepping forward sensing she might be getting ready to attack.
"Ve'll see," She said walking toward Henry, and Henry taking a slight step back before she pressed a hand to his chest and the symbol on his back and John's chest glowed faintly. "Alvight! Come!" She said smiling as she lead them inside. John kept his cool and walked beside Henry, Lucille in front of the two behind the older woman. They went down a stairwell to a large open room that was the bar. It had a warm fire going strongly near the back. Several others were sitting at tables, one of them a women with cat ears, a leg of a lizard, and the tail of a goat. Lucille lead them to a booth by the fire and sat down.
"Sorry about that Henry," Lucille said.
"It's fine, they have every right to be paranoid," Henry said.
A bartender walks up to their booth smiling and flips open her small book and has a quill ready. She had brown hair pulled back in a ponytail and wore a brown and white dress with a stained apron over it. "What can I get you three?" She asked.
"Glass of red wine for Blondie, my usual, and tankard of beer for the middle man," Lucille said.
She wrote it all done and nodded walking off her tail with a snake head at the end pointing out at the bottom of her dress.
"Don't ask us why don't ya," John said eyeing Lucille.
"I know you three, I've known you three for a long time," Lucille said. "I know what you like to drink by now."
"She's right you know," Henry said the situation from earlier fading from his mind. John sighed in response and Henry squeezed John's hand from underneath the table a smile on his face. "Now let's enjoy tonight," He said.
"I second that motion," Lucille said.
"I third it," John said smiling at Henry.
Lucille couldn't help but smile, tonight was going to be a great night, she knew it. Then the bartender returned with their drinks, she set down a few shots in front of Lucille, set down a tankard in front of John, and a wine glass in front of Henry. "Enjoy! And blood can be delivered when you two want it," She said to John and Lucille. Lucille and John nodded as she left, the three soon took a few drinks of their alcohol. John smiled as he set down his drink as Henry set down his glass smiling staring down at it. He hadn't been able to enjoy spending time in bars like he used to due to Edward Hyde. John squeezed Henry's hand smiling.
"This reminds me of a funny story," Lucille said smiling.
"What does?" Henry asked.
"Being here again, makes me think back to when me, the owner, and the head bartender," Lucille gestured to the older man behind the bar counter, he had brown hair streaked with gray tied in a tight ponytail. "Well it was the funniest thing when we went out for a walk about the town, and the old woman, her name I cannot pronounce to save my life, and the bartender decided to make a bet if the bartender could get away with messing with some policemen. Now the bartender is a shadow Mortis, species of mortal shadow demons, and it was the funniest thing to see him messing with those constables and investigator in a shadowy cloud!" She chuckled.
"That was you!" John said sounding surprised.
"Oh my god that was you!" She said now laughing, Henry was laughing as well. John angrily took a drink from his tankard, but he chuckled soon after remember that was hilarious. "Makes me think of when Isaac and I was on a case and he ended up falling in to the canal due to him being a klutz."
"I remember that! He came back so angry at you!" Henry said laughing now covering his mouth.
Lucille smiled as the two men beside her were laughing. She downed her second shot glass. Henry and John after they finished laughing both took a drink the trio continued on talking, telling stories, telling jokes and enjoying each other's company for a few more hours before returning home all three tipsy.
