The day was slowly coming to an end. Inakil generally had his duties with the creche, but Naji and Weisden often were sent out to guard the territory. They had the pleasure of not having to go by themselves. Greenhandler Esca and Adianca had gone with him out on patrol. While he knew everyone that was in the pack, he'd never really gotten to know Esca that well, so it was nice to get to talk to him and get to know him better. Now they were back and Naji had offered Esca to join them for dinner. He'd accepted and swore to meet them in the dining hall after getting a shower. Naji needed to do the same. He had Weisden get a hold of Inakil and let him know they'd meet him in the dining hall.
It didn't take Naji long before he was greeting his wonderful boyfriend in the dining hall. Esca arrived shortly there after. Food was gotten and consumed quickly, but none of them seemed to be in a hurry to leave each other's companies. "So I come back looking for Naji, who'd promised he was just going to go, and I quote, 'take a quick piss', and what do I find? Naji has managed to get himself caught in those tangle vines that grow so rampart to the south of here. He was struggling like a mad feline trying to get out of them. It was the most ridiculous thing I've seen in awhile." Esca explained between trying to not laugh so hard he couldn't talk.
"Hey now, c'mon. Those vines got the jump on me. That was a battle hard fought, let me tell you. Those fuckers hurt like a son of a bitch. And thank you, Esca, for making me sound so sexy in front of my boyfriend. That's just grand." Naji took the teasing light-heartedly. It was a funny story. He leaned over and pressed a kiss to Inakil's forehead. "I think if we're going to be sharing embarrassing stories then I need a drink. I'll be right back." Naji said before moving off to grab a glass of ale.
"Hey, just bring back a bottle of something. Vodka would be good. I could use a drink myself." Esca said. Naji gave him a thumbs up in response.
Naji grabbed a bottle of something from one of the kitchen workers and then headed back to their table with some shot glasses. If they were doing vodka, then they might as well do shots. Weisden broke into his thoughts. Naji gave a sigh, but he couldn't tell Micah no. Alright, tell him we'll be there shortly. Naji said as he got back to their table. "Sorry guys. I gotta run an errand for Micah really fast. I shouldn't be gone long. Promise. You two don't have too much fun without me." Naji said as he sat down the bottle and glasses before he headed off to play messenger boy.
Esca didn't waste time in picking up the bottle and pouring two shots for himself and Inakil. "How about it, Inakil? Wanna match me shot for shot?" He asked as he slid the rosehandler a shot. "So tell me, how long have you two been together?" Esca asked curiously. He'd gotten to spend the day getting to know Inakil's half better, might as well learn about Inakil better too.
