Inakil was so grateful that he didn't hear any laughter from Najden, or even any teasing remark, if anything the other male just tried to help him, and Inakil nodded a thank you for that, even if he was still embarrassed by nearly choking on the drink. He was glad Najden was willing to continue to conversation though without making a big deal about that. Even so, Inakil couldn't help but notice how the lordling already had his drink downed, and for a moment, Inakil looked into his glass to see how much of it was left, taking another sip as he made an internal challenge to himself.
For a moment Inakil hummed in thought before answering the question posed to him, then shrugged his shoulders, taking another sip, trying to get his glass finished too, but not be quite so obvious about it.
"Things have been well, nothing new really. Dolly didn't Rise when I thought she would this time, not that I'm complaining, it gives me a bit of a longer break." He chuckled here. He didn't necessarily hate Dolcekil's Runs, but Inakil never brought anyone into his apartment for it, always riding it out alone, which sometimes he really hated doing, but other times he wasn't sure he really wanted to open his door to people for it. He took another sip of his drink, and noting it was almost empty, drank the rest, shuddering slightly at the amount of alcohol and the taste that bombarded him all at once from that. At least he didn't almost choke that time though.
"I like work in the Support Team a little more than in the normal Guard Teams. With a few more dayhandlers around, I was able to transfer to the support team so me and Dolly kind of act as creche guards. She loves it, being around all the children."
