Any given day (Lennox, Lea)
« on: August 22, 2019, 07:46:48 am »
(Puzzles)

It had been way to long for Fells' taste. No being able to work was getting on his nerves. If he couldn't be on duty he could at least help Lea business a little bit.

Today he was sitting behind the bar studying the various bottles of Gin, whiskey, Scotch, Kenyan, DIQUOTA and drinks from places around the universe. Of course he had tried most of them  but there was a new bottle that he didn't recognize so he had a small taste. If seemed to burn right through his tongue but left a very full fruity aftertaste in his mouth, yet it had him cough involuntarily.
"What the hell is this?" He asked Seamus, who was stacking shelves nearby.
"Oh, you found the good stuff. We just brought in....it'll make you blind and knock your socks off." He laughed out loud at Fells pettyful expression.
"No kidding."

Leaving the office, where she had just finished speaking to Oliver, in regards to a possible new supplier and giving him the go ahead to approach them to see if they could get the contract. Lea entered the main hub of the bar, happy to see a few regulars and the breakfast rush slowly winding down. However that was nothing to compared to spotting Fells and Seamus at the bar, especially her beloved Icelander.

Despite his frustrations at not being back on duty yet, she was enjoying having him round to help with the bar and Freighter. It not only reminded her of when they first met but also the potential of him accepting her offer to become a partner in the business.

It was something she hadn't been able to bring up again, due to everything had happened since the initial offer but maybe she could at some point, now that things were a bit more settled.

" Hey, Shay" she said greeting the Irishman before she moved towards her Boyfriend. " Hey Babe, you okay?" she added, a little concerned at his current look and the bottle nearby.

For the time being, the Scotsman found himself with time off. And, though it was advised that he didn't do what he was about to do - Lennox hadn't heeded the advice to seek a better location than a bar counter. He had made sure that someone knew where he was before heading out to the bar. Lennox also was thinking about getting a quick bite to eat on his time off duty.

The Scotsman made his way over to the bar, seating himself closest to the exit, watching as the two interacted with another bloke. "That an Irish accent I hear?" The best way to break the ice was to jump right in.

Metaphorically speaking.

It took him a moment to come back from the nasty shot. Who would drink such fire water on hos own free will?

The Lea showed up, which brightened his day.
"Yeah, fine...but who buys this stuff? Klingons?" Blood wine was equally gross.

From the end of the counter a guest asked something about accents so Fells looked up wondering who he meant.
He waved his hand back and forth between Shamus and him. "He is....that's right. Irish."
He gave him a brief questioning look which was confirmed with an 'aye'.
"I'm from Iceland. Can I get you a drink?"
It was a business after all.

It soon became apparent at which particular drink, he had taken a sip of and didn't blame him for his comments. Although was glad to hear that his experience hadn't done any lasting damage.

" The Argellian's mostly and no surprises that even the smallest of sips, can almost blow your head off".

To be honest, she only stocked it as a favour to Pieter who assured her that it got better, the more you drank but had to take his word for it.

However her attention then shifted to the newcomer who asked about the Irish accent. Smiling politely as Fells acknowledged him and confirmed with Seamus as he got down to business and asked if he would like a drink.

His eyes followed the waving of the hand as Len took that piece of information and stored it away for a rainy day, in case he ever encountered Seamus again. "Quite the range o' people here. Anyway, jus' wonderin' whether ye serve any food wit' yer drinks? If not, jus' a double scotch on the rocks please."

The accent wasn't hard to place although a lot of people on the Fleet had very strange diluted accents because they were adapting to the people around them. Just like Fells very own language had been influenced by his job, Lea and others he met on a daily basis.

He nodded as he started to pour him a generous shot of Scottish whiskey. "Yeah...over in the other part." He pointed past Lea to the restaurant section.
"Or did you mean at the bar? Here you can only have an appetizer or a few chips."
He placed a coaster on the bar surface, then the shot glass. "Enjoy your taste of home."
He gave Lea a look before he asked. "Are you new here?" She would know better since she spent more time at the bar.

Lea listened to the exchange between her boyfriend and the newcomer, who had found a possible kindred spirit in Seamus. Proud of the way Fells was handling the questions asked and how he was engaging with the man who she hadn't seen around before. So when Fells looked towards her after asking if he was new, she nodded in acknowledgement.

" If you enjoy that taste of home, then I'm sure we can find you something in our menu as we cater for most tastes and all our meals and snacks are prepared with fresh ingredients" she added, in her usual friendly way.

Lennox had taken a brief look around the interior of Puzzles before his gaze was guided towards the other section of the bar itself, past the woman that Fells was standing next to. He shrugged as he was informed that he was only able to have an appetizer and a couple of chips if he were to stay and eat at the bar itself; presumably he would look out of kilter if they were to serve main meals on the bar counter. "Thank ye." He replied as the glass was slid over to him.

That was when it was inquired whether he was new. "That I am, recently transferred off of USS Discovery." Lennox wasn't going to go into the nitpicking that was his past experience on Colombus before he was stationed on the starship. It kept things simpler. He brought the glass up to his lips, the fumes of the Scotch greeting him.

Lennox looked over at Lea, a smile on his lips as she mentioned the cuisine. "Kind of ye, I'm sure whatever ye have tastes great. I'm down te try anythin' ye recommend." Lennox looked back over so that he was looking at the both of them, outstretching a hand to make the introductions. "Sorry, never got te introduce myself, name's Lennox."

The accent was something Fells had to get used to. But he caught the look that the man gave Lea....of course. Or maybe it was just his imagination but he didn't know many men, who didn't enjoy looking at the brunette beauty.
"I'd recommend the lamb stew today. It's fresh and made with organic potatoes and herbs....goes well with your whiskey."
Fells then busied himself with collecting two glasses other customers had left behind and put them in the dish cleaner.
As he returned he heard Lennox introduce himself. If he told them his name he probably planned to come here more often.
"I came from the USS Challenger before I got stationed here. It's not so bad....pretty exciting for a Starbase. What department do you work in?" He wondered but actually forgot to tell him his own name.

As the newcomer answered Fells's question and told them that he had just transferred from the Discovery. Lea couldn't help but pick up something behind his words, although wasn't completely surprised if it was to do with the transfer as she remembered how Fells had reacted in a similar way. She did however smile back as he spoke about the food and how he would be happy with whatever they recommended, before introducing himself.

Again proud of her boyfriend as he suggested the lamb stew and how it went well with the whiskey, before he shared with Lennox about his own background. Lea was quick to realise that he had forgotten to mention his name as she returned Lennox's greeting.

" Pleased to meet you Lennox, I'm Leanna and this is Fells".

Lennox nodded, taking on the recommendation. Lamb stew definitely sounded like a great option, something he definitely would have with another round of scotch. "Yer definitely temptin' me. If its anythin' like this whiskey, I'm sure the stew is jus' as good." He followed it up with a nod as he looked between Leanna and Fells. "Well, certainly it's good te meet ye both, Leanna and Fells. An' te answer yer question, I used te work in sec/tac before I got transferred. Looked like they needed extra hands down in engineerin' and I had a background before I enlisted."

He paused for a moment.

"Ye been wit' Starfleet, Leanna?"

The new guy seemed friendly and Fells instantly liked him, possibly only because of his accent.
He listened with interest about his transfer and then his question about Lea. Fells would let his girl friend answer that, so he quickly typed the order into the system, so the kitchen would prepare it.
"I'm assigned to security here....I'm actually just helping out at Puzzles. This place belongs to my lovely girl." He kissed her cheek and then went away to serve another Tholian customer, who had shown up down the bar.

Lea listened with interest as Lennox gave them a compliment in regards to the whiskey and stew, before he told her and Fells that it was good to meet them and how he had changed departments. The Scotsman obviously shared something in common with her boyfriend, before he asked if she was Starfleet. Fells answered first and she couldn't help but smile as he mentioned that she owned the bar and that he was helping out.

Appreciating the kiss as he then went to serve another customer, allowing Lea to continue the conversation with Lennox. " As my Boyfriend said, I own this bar and restaurant, along with a Freighter, however I've assisted the crew on the Columbus, a few times and I'm training to be a civilian nurse, which has proved be useful".
