    Date: April 22nd, 0009





    The height of excitement had left hours ago, leaving only the far too drunk who were waiting to be collected or the ones still hoping get a little something. Wandering around like some aimless vagrant, Cailia had to verbally tell the go-getters where to shove it and for a few show them. Normally it would be all smiles and sneers to put on a show and toy around with those she felt beneath her, a few laughs before stumbling off into the dark to canoodle. That thought would bring a grimace to her face, the familiarity she felt was something she promised she wouldn't feel again. Because Cailia Hallow was a smart woman, and a smart woman wouldn't go and do stupid things after learning a lesson.

    Maybe, came another embittered thought, she just wasn't all too bright in the first place.

    Her jaw clenched on reflex, an intrusive thought like that was not something she would have ever even considered. Self-confidence and pride were the staples of her character, something of great renowned much like her fabled derriere. Posture hunched over just a little more, hands digging that much deeper in the pockets of the jacket she donned for the slight chill in the night. Maybe she had the wrong attitude, maybe once she had a drink, noa  lot of drinks everything would be normal. She'd laugh, grin and leer and everything would be perfect. Less thinking, more drinking and no-...

    Nasty, Unwanted, Abnormal Thought wrote:"I'm alone again."

    The half-demon's next step was given too much force, the result echo the sound of her heels hitting the sidewalk far more loudly into the night than before. She was driven to escape that little voice that was becoming louder and louder as each day passed. Definitely needed to avoid this, it was getting worse and she didn't want to unravel it. It needed to stay pushed down in the dark where it belonged with all the other self-doubting feelings went to die in peace.

    As luck would maybe have it, she came to her dive and not a moment too soon before the dip down into a dangerous place began. Shouldering open the door, she only spared a cursory glance at the bar. Not upbeat and chic or even ritzy, it was rough and much to her joy a sprinkling of a patrons leaving plenty of space to be left well enough alone. Ignoring an attempt to sidle up to any of the men present, Cailia deposited herself squarely in a seat at the bar, snug against the wall leaving only one seat for someone to try and score. Unfortunately for them, it was a doomed venture leading to only to get dragged into a bar fight which she wanted to avoid for now. Maybe the half demon after enough alcohol would start a brawl outside. That actually might be a solid idea, might jumpstart some old habits that died hard and re-establish the grit on her soul and scoot out any weakness. A perfect idea if she did say so herself.

    It didn't take long for a bartender to meander to her,  only slightly wary of her until she slapped down credits on the bar and demanded a bottle of whatever whiskey burned the worse. The bartender was skeptical at first, until she slide more across the bar and fixed him with the blackest look she could muster. "One bottle. A whole bottle. Strongest Whiskey." The half-demon almost growled it out, finger nail tapping in time with each word, hoping  that the point was really hitting home. It seemed it did fortunately (unfortunately). It didn't take long then for a bottle with some nonsense name to be set before her with one glass. The glass received one look of disdain, while the back of the retreating tender was the recipient of one as well. All that was asked for was the bottle and yet, there was glass. Whatever, it would make it easier to drink, or some shit like that. That was exactly it, she assured herself as she poured the first glass to nearly brimming over.

    It would make it make it all easier.

    "Got any weapons-grade nucleon?" A quiet, rough voice spoke up. "Can ya mix it with some petrol and make a Mood Swinger?" The sightless mech would be nearby.

    One of the other bartenders, a Velocitronian, quickly mixed it, muttering. "Damn, what are you, Decepticon Vengeance Division?"

    "Justice Division." Kaon quipped quietly. His glossa clicked faintly with the end syllable. His face turned toward the shape of one of the echoes. The one who knew Knock Out, who adored Knock Out. Scrap. This was awkward.

    For a moment, he turned his face back toward the bartender, tapping his left index and middle digit on the conduit of his right servo. It was sort of an anxious habit for Kaon, one that he had unconsciously done plenty a time. It was like Vos ticking his barrel, though Vos was, at this hour, cleaning his barrel and adjusting his scope. Meticulous self-maintenance while Kaon was trying to socialize himself better.

    A communications officer who had trouble communicating outside the military. Imagine that. He finally turned his face back toward Cailia with lips pursed slightly for a moment. Thinking of something to say, really. He had to make sure his words carried the intent they meant to have since it was kind of hard for him to emote; a lack of optics made it hard.

    "Good night for drinkin', huh?" He quipped, just as his bartender slid a Mood Swinger to him.

    Cailia didn’t bother looking up from the depths of her whiskey, the voice sounded familiar and that was the exact opposite of what her plan was. Making a sour face down into the glass, before snatching it up and throwing it back. She definitely needed this to deal with interaction. Turning to peer at who was so bold as to bother her, the half-demon squinted at the mech. Ah, it was one of those ones who bothered Knock Out. Unfortunately, the name escaped her.

    ”It was-.” She began whilst pouring another glass for herself, not really minding the mech much at all. “And then something came between me and mindless drinking.” Cailia set the bottle back down with a touch more force than needed before tapping her glass with a long fingernail. Maybe she could scare him off and add another horror story to her reputation. Now wasn’t that a better thought.

    Sightless as he was, the tone of voice did not escape him. It was the same pointed kind of tone that Vos gave him on bad days, one he had grown used to. He gave a faint ex-vent and then took a sip on his drink. It had been a long time since he had taken anything with a little nucleon, but it didn't quite give the same buzz as Nuke. Primus he missed the addictive substance.

    "Along came a spider that sat down beside her?" Yeah, he was maybe unpleasant company at the moment, but he couldn't help but make the commentary. An acknowledgement that he wasn't exactly pleasant company. He gave a faint wince at the sound of the harsh contact of bottle and bar, his hearing quite sensitive, of course. The tap itself almost felt like the rhythm of the Empyrean Suite, however, and seemed to make him frown in a more contemplative expression. He took another sip, giving a faint throaty hum of the tune to the rhythm of the tapping.

    Morose, gloomy, cold compared to the original composition, the way he hummed it. There were faint thrums of electricity on his tesla coils the whole time. It was not a threat but his body needing to regulate his electricity levels.

    The hybrid could distinct taste the surge of rage that spiked at the constant intrusion. The feelings of indignity, the sheer audacity that she be approached. There was a time she was feared on sight, hated or desired by so many and yet...this was happening.

    Why didn't she just remain on Avalon and pass out in an alcoholic haze with sheer luxury. Probably because she didn't want to lash out on some unsuspecting fae, even if they were REALLY deserving. Too nice for her own good.

    That must be it.

    Cailia wondered what would chase this one away? Insults about not seeing she didn't want company? Unlikely because she had a feeling it wouldn't be anything new. So instead there was only the plague of company. Might as well be completely honest because that one glass of whiskey was plenty to loosen her lips (a lie but only one she knew). "You are on a dangerous line,- " She began pausing to drain the entirety of her freshly poured glass before reexamining the mech. "I'm hardly nice on a good day, and unfortunately for you, this is not a good day. So what do you want, Spider?" Her tone was icy, flat and a far cry from the usual fire many could attest to. If it were a better day, she might've even pitied this poor cybertronian who made the mistake of wanting small talk. The tapping ceased when the humming joined the fray, it filled her with another surge of that anger and in such an unprecedented way. A loud hiss of air escaped from her mouth, as the Queen reached for the bottle with plenty of clanking and clattering to drive home the point that the small grace allocated to social interaction was dwindling.

    It was ironic maybe that he referred to himself in jest as a spider when he was sitting next to a bonafide black widow. Hell, she used to rock clothing that even modelled the iconic color and pattern. Ah, the good old days before the wonders of time and yoga pants made her soft in body and in heart. Cailia grimaced at the intrusion, this was definitely spiraling down a darker path than she wanted.

    Yeah, small talk didn't seem to be cutting it. In fact, he felt like he would have a better time cutting it with a double fusion cannon mounted on a dead arm or something. Bad day aside, he vented. "I wanted to give you a little company but I see now that my company is burdensome on you. Apologies." Empty optic sockets seemed to give an empty, emotionless stare into his Mood Swinger. The faint fizzing of the nucleon snapped in his sensitive hearing and seemed to draw his focus for the moment.

    Maybe Vos had the right idea with his meticulous self-maintenance. But Kaon wasn't Vos. He was aware of this. He had no way to do most of his mantenance himself and it dawned on him how much of a burden he'd always been to the Justice Division, despite his boons. He gave another gulp of his drink, feeling emptier than the last gulp. Yeah, this was rock bottom, two-point-zero. A new level of low. Drinking and being a pest. "Perhaps it's better if I give you space, yes?" His tone was much quieter, less boisterous. His opticless gaze fixed on his drink once more, as though to reflect that the near-emptiness of the glass reflected that of his own spark in the moment.

    Here he was. Empty without a purpose. Maybe the Functionists had been right all along...



    ((That's alright. Life turned around and decided to be pretty bunk on me too. Will try to post as often as I can when health allows!))
