    You bet your green ghoulish buttocks Kev was chipper! This was the first date he had been on in over two years! This outing was a first step for the two, and it made the alien excited. Maybe a bit nervous too, but in a good way! As if the two were riding a coaster that was about to take off for exciting twists and turns. Fear and Kev were on a journey together, and he couldn't wait to see where they would go from here. Looking forward to the future no longer felt frightening.

    "Puh?" The alien blinked, stepping forward in unison with the ghoul. "More acidic and bitter...alright. I can work with that!" Not that Kev was in any place to deny the Judge. Head facing forward towards the front of the line, he wriggled lightly. Excited as he was, maybe he could tone it down a tad! Fear's annoyance was pretty clear, and this was supposed to be fun for them both! Nothing could kill cheeriness quite like a splash of reality. "Oh, right." A hand clasped over the space between Kev's chin and nose, palm rubbing against the smooth scales lightly. "How inconvenient... If I ever turn into a human again, I'll have to make good use of my mouth while I've got it!" There had to be numerous dishes the Judge wished to relive!

    "Kev, be a dear and ssstudy the menu for me. My eyesss are not what they usssed to be."

    A fluttery feeling made itself known in the alien's chest, like the pitter patter of a butterfly's wings beneath his ribs! "Got you covered, sir!" Kev remarked as if making a promise, stepping up on his tiptoes to better see the menu ahead! Alongside the order window for the food booth stood written menus that were organized like beloved commandments. Each one was grouped by type of food, such as fried goods or frozen treats. The alien's pupils narrowed to get a better read of their choices. "Looks like they've got... pizza, pretzels, chicken tenders, hot dogs, nachos, cheese fries, and onion rings. There's also fried pickles, oreos, reeses, cheese curds, funnel cake, and something called a churro?" He glanced to the Judge briefly, confused by the treat before he went back to his menu studying! "Snow cones, slushies, ice cream cones, sundaes, a banana split... and milkshakes! And as for drinks, they look to be mostly soft drinks, juices, and water! I think I see a section for alcoholic drinks, too!"

    Ugh, too chipper! TOO CHIPPER! Judge Fear couldn't help but gag at the alien's saccharine daydreaming, though the fault was equally shared. After all, did it not take two to conceive a date? At least two, but neither of the mismatched fellows were interested in polyamory; for the best, really.   

    "How inconvenient... If I ever turn into a human again, I'll have to make good use of my mouth while I've got it!"

    Good lord, man! Was he doing this on purpose?

    "Mm... hard passsss on the hot dog, mate." And for rather obvious reasons. Ooh, but a slice of greasy pizza and cheese fries? Should the alien been gifted with a tried and true stomach, it would have gurgled to Hell and back. "I fancy a good ssslice of pie," the ghoul decided. Grotesque talons wrapped themselves around Kev's shoulders with all the stiff finesse of a, well, shambling cadaver. "That'sss what Yanksss in New York called pizza," Judge Fear explained. No actual pie for him, thank you. Too sugary, too rich for the palette. "And how about sssome cheessse friesss on the ssside, hm? With a glassss of beer to wasssh it all down?" Those fried pickles were also calling his name, but the helmeted superfiend knew better. Corpse bloat was never a happy occasion. Maybe later, however? Hm, but if he wanted funnel cake later...

    A pang of distress echoed across their psychic bond. "Churro...? Ah, yessss. Churro." Judge Fear welcomed the distraction with open arms. "It isss a deep-fried treat made of dough, sssprinkled with cinnamon and sssugar on top. I'm not fond of sssweetssss, but you'd certainly enjoy one." Kev, you philistine. As for the rest of what the menu had to offer, Judge Fear regarded it with disinterest. "That will be it for my order," he rasped. "What ssshall you be having?"

    Dairy could be confidently voted out.

    Aside from a soft chuckle, the alien elected not to comment on Fear's gagging. It was enough that the Judge had entertained Kev enough to join him for a date. He even temporarily offered up his badge! A bit of gagging and grumping was allowed. "Hmhm~! Suit yourself." The scaly man winked, leaving the discussion of hot dogs at that.

    When the talons placed themselves upon his shoulders, Kev's gaze briefly left the menu to take notice of the cadaver. He made no move to shrug off the hands. In fact, he leaned into them. "Pie?" Where did he mention a pie...? Oh! Right, Italians like Mario called a pizza a 'pie'! Bada ba boopy! "Good choice. Any pizza in particular? Pepperoni, cheese?" Oh, but that was hardly the ghoul's only choice. Cheesy fries and a glass of beer, sounded perfect for a little meal at the amusement park! Definitely not healthy, but it wasn't like Fear had to worry about calories!

    Corpse bloat, however... Kev reached a hand up, letting it settle upon the ghoul's talons. A small thrum of comfort was sent through the bond, the alien eager to distract. "Fried dough with sugar and cinnamon? I think I'd want to try that." With Fear's share decided, now it was time for him to decide what he'd like. "Hm..." Humming in thought, Kev patted the corpse's hand absentmindedly. When the line moved, drawing them ever closer to ordering their meals, he stepped forward. "I think I'll get a slice of pepperoni pizza, a churro, and a sparkling water! And of course, the funnel cake to share~!" All of the carbonation without the thick syrup. Between the two of them, they'd definitely have enough cheese to spare. With his eyes upon the menu, the alien began to mentally add up how much money their food would cost. His free hand wandered to a pocket, sorting through the credits he'd brought along. "I'll cover this one, consider it my treat to you!"

    ...Aaaaaand the alien was now leaning into Judge Fear's rancid touch. Good grief, the superfiend just couldn't win, could he? With a curt snort, the helmeted ghoul answered, "I am a pepperoni-type of sssoul." Meat lovers was preferred, but such refined tastes couldn't be expected of an amusement park. Just... no sardines. Never sardines.

    "I think I'll get a slice of pepperoni pizza, a churro, and a sparkling water! And of course, the funnel cake to share~! I'll cover this one, consider it my treat to you!"

    Ooh, funnel cake! What's this about footing the bill, however?

    The pride in Judge Fear's chest would never accept such an absurd gesture, though the insolent git lurking just behind delighted in Kev's offer. In the end, the superfiend quelled both and merely did what he felt best. "A noble undertaking, but I cannot enjoy sssussstenance and you cannot consssume solidsss," he reasoned. Before the scaly blighter could object, a single credit - its denomination roughly that of a $20 - found itself in Kev's hands. "Here, jussst in cassse you need extra for the cassshier," Judge Fear explained. He wouldn't accept 'no' for an answer, either. And while the ghoul hadn't been following the monetary value of the common dollar for quite some time, Judge Fear knew things didn't grow on trees - especially money. There was also the matter of shielding his deepest, darkest feelings from the alien himself, but that went without saying, didn't it? (Hint hint: Judge Fear was tickled pink. Vaguely tickled pink.)

    "Anywho, I am going to commandeer one of the nearby tablesss and prepare it," he rasped, directing a rotted thumb over his shoulder. "Will you be fine ssstanding in line all by your lonesssome?" It was really a stupid question, but Kev seemed to attract stupidity like shit to flies. Didn't hurt to be thorough.

    "Heeeey, I like pepperoni too! Samesies~!" Kev chirped happily, eyes squinting. As for sardines, the two were on the same wavelength there. Such disgusting little fishies. It certainly did not belong on a pizza! No sir, not a single drop of that gross fishy would touch their slice of pizza! The alien's joyful affection paused when Fear pointed out the obvious, however. He blinked, momentarily confused.

    "Here, jussst in cassse you need extra for the cassshier,"

    Before he could object, the ghoul relinquished a credit and placed it in Kev's scaly hands. His thumb stroked over the side of it, tracing the digits deeming the credit's worth. Shifting the credit around in his hands, the alien briefly lowered his gaze to their feet. He wasn't upset, though! And his pride certainly hadn't been bruised, if Fear wished to pay for this, that was that. The reptilian wouldn't have argued otherwise without a damn good reason. And, frankly...it felt kinda nice. Emerald scales turned a few shades brighter, his insides fluttery. He'd forgotten what this felt like and he didn't want to forget ever again. "Thank you." If Fear was tickled pink, than Kev was tickled green!

    Alright, that was enough mooning like a teenager on her first date. With a deep breath in, the smaller man squared his shoulders and stood at attention! Right, the next best step right now would be to save a table for them, lest they wind up having to stand to eat their meal. And that would just be tiring. "I'll be fine, promise!" If that didn't exactly inspire confidence...well. He could hardly blame the Judge. With Kev's list of experiences in this world, from tripping and breaking his nose on the sidewalk, to the more extreme cases like being murdered, kidnapped, snatched off of the ground by a plushy pterodactyl... Clutching the credit in one hand, the alien raised the other to give Fear a salute! "I'll stand in line, order our food, pay for it, and find our table without a single issue! Like a good cadet!"

    Samesies...? Judge Fear was both confused and amused by Kev's bastardization of the English language, and that went double for the alien's bottomless well of enthusiasm. He returned the latter's salute with hesitant uncertainty. "R-Right, disssmisssssed!" So much for authoritative composure... Eh, there were worse things to suffer. With the alien scampering off to place their order (and hopefully trip yet again on his clumsy feet), that left Judge Fear to find a table. And by 'find', he meant bully its original occupants into relinquishing it to him. Ah, just like old times! A shame he couldn't bully the hapless sinners black-and-blue.

    Crik...! Crik...! Crik...!

    Rancid feet walked across the hot summer blacktop as the helmeted superfiend preyed upon his choices, his ethereal eyes blazing in the afternoon sun. Hm, a table by a garbage can? No, no! Judge Fear would rather not scare the daylights out of flies. What about a table in the middle? ...Nah, then everyone would walk past it. The ghoul didn't fancy being someone else's freak show attraction. Omitting the rear and the middle left only the sides, Judge Fear craning his rigid neck to a row of tables situated beside a building's wall. Ah, promising! There were four - each already occupied, of course - but only one had a red-and white striped umbrella. It didn't take a rocket science to figure out his decision. Chains jangled and ancient leather stretched as Judge Fear made his way over toward the unlucky family of four.

    "Greetingsss!" he hissed cheerily. The father of the group studied him warily mid-bite in his cheeseburger. "In the name of jussstice, I mussst confissscate your ssseating arrangementsss. You are to vacate the premissse immediately." Now, that would've normally been the ticket, since it was a citizen's duty to abide by a Judge's law, but these people were of a more unsavoury sort. What, with their ironed polo shirts and their salon-styled hair. Upper-class suburbia at its finest!

    The father spoke first, and gruffly. "Who do you think you are!?" he demanded. His wife simply nodded with a growing look of scorn. The child, meanwhile, were undoubtedly fascinated with Judge Fear's vile appearance, their eyes betraying their child-like curiosity.

    "Can you not hear?" the superfiend goaded. "I sssaid I am taking thisss location for judicial purposssesss. Leave now, or I will hold you in contempt of the law!"

    Three... Two...

    "Oh, Reginald!" The wife rested a hand upon her husband's forearm. "Get rid of this brute, will you? He's interrupting our meal, and I don't like how the boys are taking a liking to his... Halloween costume." What!? Ooh, that does it.

    The husband, Reginald, reached into a pocket and retrieved his cellular device. "Of course, dear. I'll dial park security and have this ruffian arre - !!"

    He never got to finish.

    A presence overtook their minds, a dark presence, and soon their faces drained into a ghostly-white, their eyes the size of porcelain saucers. It was a good couple of seconds before Reginald stammered to speak, "W-We will h-h-happily give up our t-table for you, J..! J...! Judge!" And look, even his faithful wife agreed. "Y-Yes!" she squeaked. "W-W-Whatever the law d-demands!" Now see, was that so hard? Satisfaction emanated from Judge Fear's aura. "Good, good..." he hissed, tapping his fingertips together. "I knew you would sssee it my way. Now be off with you lot. I am feeling generoussss, ssso consssider thisss a warning." Possessed by these wicked forces, the quartet stiffly rose from their seats, the benches still warm, and shuffled away like a contingent of robots as they carried their trays. "Ah, except you, Reginald." Judge Fear reached over and forced the man down into his seat without finesse. "I have need of your sssinful abilitiesss," he rasped. "You are to sssit there until I sssay otherwissse, underssstood?" The man nodded limply as if in a trance, and was unable to break free of the ghoul's hold. "Ha ha, excellent!"

    Pleased with himself, Judge Fear sat beside his shivering captive and happily drummed his rotted fingers atop the table's glistening surface. "Now, what isss taking him ssso long...?" Tardiness wasn't a sexy trait!

    Listen to that little stutter! Oh, how he loved it when Fear got flustered. The scaly man chuckled to himself, waving one last time before the two had parted ways. If he really paid attention, he could spy the ghoul's helmet easily towering over the people among them! But he had to turn away eventually. Kev followed the colorful posters of food. Look at all of that melted cheese! He craned his head to admire the photo of a delicious plate of cheesy fries. Sure hoped they actually looked like that!

    Sandals clapped against cement sidewalk as Kev filed in line behind a few other patrons to the park. As he waited in line, the alien continuously counted off the food orders on his fingertips. Two slices of pepperoni pizza, cheese fries, a churro, funnel cake, a glass of beer, and sparkling water! Was that everything? The alien counted and recounted about three or four more times. He didn't want to leave anything out! The line ahead moved bit by bit, trickling away until eventually, it was his turn! With a confident air, Kev stepped up to the ordering window with a twinkle in his eyes! "Hi!"

    The uniformed worker blinked, taken aback by the eager friendliness. "...Hi." His eyes took note of the scaly creature without a mouth. Either he was ordering just a drink, or his buddies had sent him up to put in everyone's orders for some reason. Whatever it was, the man's fingers hovered above the register with rehearsed ease. "What can I get for you today?"

    Heels clicking together, Kev stood straight as he counted off of his fingers yet again. "I would like...two slices of pepperoni pizza, a side order of cheese fries! A churro, a funnel cake, a glass of beer, and some sparkling water!" There, he'd remembered everything! Clickity clack, click! Behind the window, the man's fingers typed in a series of numbers until eventually a total was rung up!

    "That'll be sixteen credits."

    "Here you are!" Fear's credit was handed over, the change pocketed as he shifted to the pick up window. The alien peered inside curiously, watching as the man who'd taken his order collected up the food. Bit by bit the man worked, until finally he met Kev at the window. He shifted the tray to the reptile's side of the window. Two different slices of pepperoni pizza on paper plates, and a cardboard tray of salty fries, topped with melted cheese! A long churro stick wrapped in a napkin, a paper plate with freshly fried funnel cake! It was positively smothered in powdered sugar, some of it overflowing onto the dark brown tray. Kev's drink came in a clear plastic cup, the little bubbles sizzling and rising up against the edges. Fear's beer came in a glass mug, the top layer frothy. With a hearty handful of napkins on the side, it seemed they had everything they needed! "Thank you, sir! Have a nice day!" He nodded with a squint, grasping the tray firmly with both hands!

    Finding Fear was an easy feat, the ghoul's psychic energies like a homing beacon in the alien's mind. Besides, it was hard to ignore the only undead being dressed in black with chains and an iron helm. Kev was unable to wave with his hands full, so he could only wriggle his shoulders in an imitation of some sort of happy dance! Ah, and he picked a table with an umbrella too, how thoughtful! There was somebody else at the table though... Confused, he approached the table and hesitated to set the tray down. His eyes were on their impromptu guest. A fancy looking man, in a specially ironed shirt with hair that looked well cared for! "Sooo...who's this guy? Friend of your's?" Kev eventually asked as he set the tray down. He wasn't jealous, nor worried that Fear might have been cheating on him. He had enough faith to know the ghoul would never do that. But...he still wanted to know who this man was! The alien found a chair that was closer to his boyfriend than it was to the mysterious man, head cocked to the side as he waited to hear Fear's answer.

    "Sooo...who's this guy? Friend of your's?"

    Ah, here came the man of the hour. And with their food, no less!

    "A mere acquaintance who hasss generousssly offered hisss servicesss ssso that we may enjoy today'sss greasssy meal," Judge Fear practically purred. This was, of course, a lie - but it's not like Kev was gonna dispute the helmeted ghoul's words, hm? He reached over and draped a foul, rancid hand upon Reginald's shoulder, the poor fellow a ghastly white. "Isssn't that right, my dear man?" Reginald wisely kept mum, fearing for not only his life but that of his family's, and responded with a limp nod of his head. Dear man, indeed! Why, even his eyes carried a pallid, distant gleam. It was a satisfactory performance, however, and Judge Fear returned the bulk of his judicial attention onto the alien seated across the table. "Did you fulfill the order asss requesssted?" he inquired.

    Though his host was equipped with a pair of eyes itself, they were terribly - terribly! - useless things. Judge Fear could hardly recognize the misshapen lumps of foodstuffs presented before him, let alone incapable of discerning their otherwise mouthwatering smells.

    He pointed to something that was vaguely triangular in shape. "Isss thisss a ssslice of pie?" It must be, for there were two of them: one for himself and one for Kev. "Here, kindly give it to our friend Reginald," Judge Fear delegated. "He looksss posssitively famissshed, and could benefit from an extra helping of fat. Make certain he isss given the ssside of cheese friesss and the beer asss well." Should the alien be curious (as he most certainly was), everything will be answered in due time. For now, the food needed to be dispersed accordingly lest it grow tasteless and cold.

    Chop chop, Kev! Chop chop!

    Uh-huh. An acquaintance. Because if Fear was known for anything, it was for making buddies on the fly! The alien quirked a brow but indeed, he did not dispute the claim. Kev only watched as his boyfriend draped an arm around the pale man's shoulders. The badge in his pockets almost seemed heavy with the weight of Fear's promise, and that was enough for the scaly man to trust that the ghoul had nothing bad planned for their guest! "Nice to meet you, sir!" He greeted with a chipper tone as he settled into his seat. Immediately reaching for his drink, the alien paused to glance over at the Judge. "I did! And I have some change for you as well." Grabbing the corner of the tray, Kev turned it for Fear to get a better view of it. A decrepit hand reached over and pointed at a slice of pizza.

    "It is! Pepperoni, as requested." It took the lean alien a moment to put together who exactly 'Reginald' was. Must be this poor bloke! Giving the man a sidelong glance, Kev scooped up the paper plate and slid it over to lay in front of Reginald. There was already a growing imprint of grease leaking through the paper. "Hopes he likes his fat with a side of grease." Those poor arteries... Like a loyal cadet, he heeded Fear's words and gave the man the rest of Fear's order. A glass mug was carefully set down and the tray, just as greasy as the pizza, was handed over as well. The last thing he handed over wasn't ordered, a good pile of brown napkins for the man to use at his leisure.

    "That should be everything." His drink reclaimed, Kev dipped his fingertips into the sparkling clear liquid. It popped and sizzled against his khaki scales as his big blue eyes remained focused on Fear and Reginald. It was clear that the corpse had some sort of plan. The one he'd been building up, no doubt! The alien had an idea of what it was, but he still watched with an attentive gaze. What was going to happen...?

    Feh! Kev, don't you get 'mouthy' with your superiors. The Judge let such insolent behaviour slide in favour of their food - mustn't let it grow cold, or else the experience will be ruined! "Have you ssseen the man?" the ghoul quipped, looking at Reginald. "Why, even hisss chinsss have chinsss! I think a ssscant amount of greassse won't do his body any harm. Isssn't that right, lad? Now consssume the ediblesss like a good sssinner and be deliberate with your chewing. I want to sssavour every bite." And thus, Judge Fear's so-called 'plan' was brought to light.

    It was a simple trick, really. Even a first-year novice could establish a link between minds, however crude and imperfect. The key was maintaining it long enough to enjoy.

    Icy tendrils writhed and bored into Reginald's psyche and bridged the gap between two very unlikely, very different souls; every facet of the average middle-aged life became strikingly clear to the Dark Judge like the finest of Riedel glassware, right down to the minutiae of rearing a family, supporting a wife, and working a humdrum 9-5 job at some indiscriminate office park. So, this is what sinners decided to occupy their finite time with? What a dreadfully boring existence... Judge Fear was frankly surprised that Reginald hadn't offed himself like he occasionally fancied in dreams and wandering thoughts at his cubicle. Of course, that could always be arranged...

    Gnarled fingers twitched every so slightly at the tantalizing eventuality. Patience, patience! They were here to eat; to behave. How... depressing, but rules were the rules. Two sets of eyes beheld the alien seated across the fairground table, a familiar sheen ripping behind the hazy looking glass of Reginald's. If one looked closely, perhaps closer than they'd like, they would see a wispy silhouette churning within those murky pupils.

    "Hm..." Judge Fear emitted a noise of mild disappointment. "I honessstly don't know what I expected," he rasped. "When you mentioned the greassse, Kev, I had thought you were being your usssual obnoxiousss ssself. Now, however, I sssee you were rather bang on." Oh, don't get the helmeted superfiend wrong: he enjoyed every much of the flavour as the next delighted child seated throughout the eating area, but... well, the grease. It was damn near overpowering the oozy cheese, the cured slices of pepperoni, the doughy crust...! Rancid talons aimed for the ice-cold glass of beer and brought its foamy head to the Dark Judge's puppet. "Drink," Judge Fear commanded. "Wasssh away the greassse with thisss, and remember to take it ssslow. We've all the time in the world, ha ha..." Some of them, anyway.

    Can't be 'mouthy' when you're mouthless~! Kev managed to get away with it this time, as Fear focused on their food instead. Particularly on the status of their Reginald friend and whether he'd be affected by the grease. Bright blue eyes briefly assessed the chins upon chins. "Well...I guess you have a point." It wasn't like he ate multiple meals like the Judge once did when he was alive! Surely he'd know more about this subject? But somehow the greasy nature of this fair food still made the scaly man a tad concerned. At least Fear wouldn't get nauseous off the stuff! "Good idea, Fear!" Morally dubious but...that was to be expected. The experience probably wasn't that awful.

    Nursing his sparkling water, the scaly alien couldn't help but feel some of the trickles from Fear's new connection to this Reginald man. Nothing too stressful or mind-blowing, but the peek into domestic hum-drum was obviously more appealing to Kev than it was for the ghoul! His eyes widened, a soft emerald blush coming over his exposed scales. Raising young children, marriage... So strange, things he'd only had a mere taste of before. Could that ever be his life? Sorting that away, he blinked at the pair of eyes staring back at him from across the table. The average amusement park goer would remain oblivious to the table's shenanigans. For Kev, it was rather uncanny to feel the ghoul's eyes staring at him twice over. He almost lost himself in those human eyes, staring deeper and deeper to spy what lied beyond the sheen. Only when the ghoul spoke up did the alien shift his gaze off of the human.

    "Obnoxious?!" He squinted at the Judge, huffing lowly. "Well, sometimes I know what I'm talking about, obnoxious or not~!" From what Kev remembered during his own moments as a human, pizza definitely stuck out as an extremely greasy dish. "The churro and the funnel cake aren't very greasy, so you might enjoy those." The alien suggested helpfully, tugging his own slice of pepperoni closer. A fingertip nudged at the pizza, swiping along the edge to capture the leaking sauce and a bit of the melted cheese. Mmmm. Yep. Definitely greasy. It was slick against his scales, and yet the tomato sauce made it all worth it! While he pressed more sauce out of his food, the alien stole a glance at his boyfriend and their third wheel. Washing down the grease was a good idea! "How is it?" He asked curiously, eyeing the amber drink. Here's hoping Reginald didn't vomit... Kev really didn't want a repeat!

    Oh god, now the alien was thinking about horribly banal topics like children and marriage. Ugh! It gave Judge Fear a damn near illegal amount of the collywobbles. The ghoul even shuddered as his glare threw daggers at Kev from across their bitsy table. "Yesss, obnoxiousss," he reiterated with soured emphasis. "It isss unbecoming for a ssservant of the law to lie. Are you calling me a liar, Kev?" That would be rather... unfortunate, and more so for the alien's noisome behalf. Reginald, bless his wicked soul, obediently pressed his blanched lips against the glass and sipped, mindful to drink as slowly as possible - he knew better than to comment. Good lad! The bitter taste of beer had been such a sorely-missed experience...

    "How is it?"

    Despite that, however, the Dark Judge could be a conservative critic. "Eh..." Judge Fear gestured lukewarmly, his hand teetering back and forth. "I sssuppossse it isss decent, given the venue," he rasped, "but I had been hoping for sssomething a tad ssstronger. It ssseemsss Yankee beer isss more relatable to the disssappointing likesss of pissss-water." Guess the stereotypes held some truth after all. Still! Prior to this, the Dark Judge hadn't sampled alcohol in quite a while (yes, a few weeks and/or months constituted as 'quite a while' for a being over two centuries old). A pleasant hum rumbled from the cadaver's throat as he continued piggybacking off Reginald's senses, largely content for the time being. "You know, in hindsssight, coupling the beer with thisss ssslice of pizza had been a real top idea," Fear admitted. Idle chatter with the likes of Kev and his stupid face? Why yes, it was possible!

    He shifted his bony legs with a chuckle as deep as savannah thunder, "I quite like it. What'sss it tassste like for you?" Human taste buds were one thing, but what about absorbing the flavours through one's scales? Kev's physiology was just the weirdest thing ever, and this was coming from an eldritch abomination!

    Who could have known that thinking about marriage and babies would elicit such a reaction from the ghoul? That glare could...kill~! Kev counted himself lucky that he was immune to Fear's special stare. He ducked his gaze sheepishly, waving away such fluffy thoughts. They were definitely not his future, and the scaly man had accepted as much long ago. Hard to have any babies when you're the last of your kind, eh wot? "Kikiri, my little storm cloud, love of my life...!" The alien placed a hand over his chest and batted his huge eyes. "I'm not calling you a liar! Promise! I can even agree that I can be quite obnoxious!" His blue eyes batted again for emphasis. "I was just saying that in this case, I knew what I was talking about. I'm familiar with pizza! Tasty but unfortunately greasy." Eating too much at once could cause a hell of a tummy ache too. Godspeed, Reginald!

    Speaking of, the man was able to hold his drink down admirably. Perhaps he wasn't a stranger to beer. "Mm, yeah." Drinking his own bubbly, the alien nodded his head in agreement. "You might find a better beer at one of the pubs. This area focuses more on the food and the sodas." Kev was unfamiliar with Yankee customs, but it seems they were terrible at making both tea and alcoholic beverages! At least Fear was still enjoying himself. "I've never had a beer with pizza, but I've paired it with soda before! Since pizza is so dense, it's a good sensation when you can swallow it down with a good drink." Beer wasn't the scaly man's drink of choice but he couldn't deny that he was curious! Something to try out, next time he ever turned into a human. The idle chatter was quite enjoyable to the derpy alien. So much so that he could almost forget about their little third wheel!

    A deep chuckle rumbled through the table and through Kev's arms. He blinked back at the Judge, surprised but not upset! He let out a bubbly little laugh in return, gaze softening. The alien shifted to lean in Fear's direction as he busied himself with his pizza. "Well..." He glanced down at his plate. "The grease is very slick. If I eat too much of it I almost want to wash my hands afterward. I, unfortunately, can't taste much of anything off of the dough! It just has a nice texture on my scales." The slender man shrugged to himself. "The cheese is pleasantly soft! It definitely 'tastes' like milk, but it's far better. What I really enjoy about pizza, though, is the sauce!" He peeled back a corner of the melted cheese and exposed the steamy goodness beneath! The tips of his fingers pressed against the sauce, leaving little fingerprints. "Mm...~! It tastes unlike anything else I've eaten! A zesty tingle from the seasoning and the tomato. It feels good! Like...a tomato smoothie!" If he had a bathtub of the stuff, he'd be a very happy yet sticky alien!
