A Friendly Face, A Tall Drink (Meninas, Ehefra) HEADER_93322526_p1_master1200

Outside of work hours, Ehefra certainly had a very different vibe about her. Texting Meninas where to meet up with her, she stood with her back resting against the wall of a nearby building, glancing up from her phone as she kept an eye out for the Ritter.

She herself was dressed up pretty casually. A pair of jorts, heavy boots, and a cropped top currently hidden by a long sleeve fur-lined red jacket. Definitely a far cry from the usual Labcoat and uniform she sported. Sure she could have worn something a little more professional, but hey, if youre trying to get along with a coworker you didn't want to come off as too serious right?

MENINAS MCALLON

It was times like this when she blessed her height as it sure as heck helped Meninas figure out where she was going, seeing over all over the people hustling about around her. It was quite busy and while the Sternritter felt the usual knot of anxiousness in her stomach with being around so many strangers, the fact that she actually knew where she was going for once made it much easier to cope with. Ehefra’s text had helped her greatly in not getting lost and the over six footer was actually quite calm. Her wounds from their earlier spar had healed after a trip to the infirmary and she was feeling pretty good.

She felt a little odd about being out of her uniform, having become quite attached to it but the Sternritter figured that she should keep things casual. Sporting a white T shirt, jeans and trainers, she certainly looked as though she was ready for a drink and after the day she had, that couldn’t have been any truer. It felt nice to belong though and that was a feeling that wouldn’t leave her any time soon.

Eventually, she spotted the building where she was supposed to meet the Administrator and managed to move through the crowd without any real issues. When she caught sight of Ehefra, she was a touch surprised by just how different she appeared without the usual Quincy garb but honestly, it helped Meninas relax a little.

“Hey, Ehefra, been waiting long?”
She asked with a smile.

Ehefra smirked as she spotted Meninas coming from quite a ways away, a slight chuckle in her chest as Meninas asked her that question. "Not at all. You're just on time." She assured the ritter, making note of the girl's outfit. Definitely didn't seem like the kinda girl who went out a lot. But that was just fine by her. "Hope you don't mind I already got a place in mind." She gently gestured over her shoulder down the street itself. Promptly gesturing for Meninas to follow as they headed down the sidewalk.

"Glad you showed up, I almost expected to see you in uniform, hah. But I'm glad that's not the place. It's nice to get a chance to relax after work. How long you been in the Sternritters? If you don't mind me asking." She ventured. It wouldn't be long until their destination started to show around the corner. A small little Izakaya, a spot just for this kind of after work meetup. It served drinks, snacks, as wel as a number of different seating arrangements. Be it at stools along the bar, at normal chairs and tables, or on mats with low-style tables that were more japanese in style. Naturally, she'd let Meninas pick where they sat.

MENINAS MCALLON

There was a wry smile that briefly crossed Meninas’s features as Ehefra mentioned her uniform. She might not have been a social butterfly as such but the pink haired giant knew how daft she’d probably have looked had she come in her Sternritter garb. For all she knew, it might have put others on edge, something that Meninas sure didn’t want. Mind you, she tended to look kind of menacing anyway, given her rather muscular appearance but it wasn’t something she generally tried to do deliberately. It was just the way she was and Meninas was thankful that Ehefra had so easily been able to look past it.

“Not that long at all. A week, two at the most.” She replied honestly to the Administrator’s question. “There’s been so much going on since then that I’ve been in a bit of a tailspin at times. Going from a farming community to a member of the Vandenreich has been a massive jump and I’m still kind of coming to terms with it. It’s a whole new world for me.”

The choice of drinking spot was one that Meninas certainly approved of and as the Sternritter took a moment to glance around at the place, she felt rather at home. The people seemed friendly enough and there was a nice atmosphere, one that brought a smile to her face. Noticing that Ehefra hadn’t led her to a seating area, Meninas assumed that she had the choice of where they should sit and so led the way to the stools behind the bar, sliding on to one.

She’d add at that point, a chuckle escaping her. “This city makes me feel as though I’m a relic. A woman from a bygone era.”

Ehefra snorted softly at that and let out a little bark of laughter at the woman's comment as they made their way to the Bar itself. Interesting choice, much less one on one. But that was fine by her. As she hopped up onto the stool, she drummed her fingers along the counter. "That new huh? Well hot dog, you really are just a fresh gal. Makes me feel a little rough about takin the licks that I did. But I suppose you're just on the talented side of things." A playful little smirk thrown Meninas's way, to let her know she wasn't actually bothered by such a thing.

"Farmer huh? Not bad. I met a lot of people like that when I was younger. But I get the transition. I myself lived out in the wilderness for a few years when I was younger, just about when I was gettin to be an adult. Transitioning from a city lifestyle to camping was pretty rough. And uh, switching back was a relief, but still was a bit jarring. Never realized how loud a place could be until you got used to silence. Can only imagine how its been for a gal like you." She mused, tapping her chin a few times before folding her arms.

"Don't let some people hear you say that shit. We got a few people in the org pushing a hundred plus. Or you could be Miss Lamperd and be more than a few hundred years old. She was around for the original vandenreich. " She pointed out, ordering herself a light beer to start herself off "Met anyone you've gotten along with? Any.... cute guys?" A toothy little smirk flashed. There certainly were some ...interesting guys in the vandenreich. Sadly quite a few of them taken.....

MENINAS MCALLON

“Don’t feel too bad about it. My father was adamant that I start training as soon as I could walk pretty much.” Meninas replied with a small smile, thinking back to those early days, before adding with a touch of dry humour. “He never taught me about how to deal with annoying tricks like yours though.” It had been a rough spar for her but looking back on it now, Meninas couldn’t help but grin. Ehefra had shown her an awful lot in the short time they’d fought.

“Mmm. When I wasn’t training, I was helping out in the fields, lifting hay bales and things like that. It wasn’t a complicated life and we didn’t use much technology but it was home. I still miss it, even now.” She admitted. “It sure has been a tough transition and I’m not all that good with big crowds. Walking around the city has been a bit of a struggle for me at times. I hope that I’ll get used to it over time.”

Meninas raised an eyebrow as Ehefra mentioned a few other Vandenreich, surprised to hear that there were centurions among its ranks. “I bet they are all better with technology than I am.” She answered, cringing a little as she thought about her own lack of skill with it. A phone was about the limit of what she could properly use.

When it was her turn to order, she’d ask for the strongest ale they served without much thought. All Scots could drink like horses, other than her brothers, who’d all been pretty useless. Meninas had won a few drinking games in her time, as it took an awful lot to stagger the over six footer.

Her expression, which had been fairly bright until then, changed a little when the topic of cute guys came up, her cheeks almost matching her hair colour for a second or two. “I’ve…never really been into guys. I don’t know why but I’ve just never been interested. Brothers teased me like mad about it.” She shrugged slightly. “Figured that maybe I’m just kind of clueless about such things. I wouldn’t know what to say to someone that I did fall for if I’m honest. How about you?”

An impish little grin spread across her features in the vein of her 'little tricks'. "Spent a good few years in an environment having to deal with hollows pretty regularly. You either learn some tricks or ya die. I'll be happy to teach you some in the future." She noted with a raised of her chin and a proud little puffing of her chest. It was abundantly nice to have seniority and a little something she could pass on. She WAS a teacher after all. Well, until she got this job.

"Nothing wrong with honest work. Miss it myself sometimes, being independent and all that shit. Still, uh, being worse than me at technology isn't saying much. I'm the head of the Vandenreich's Research and Development division." She chuckled, giving the woman a reassuring pat on the back.

That said, she raised her brows a little in surprise at that answer. "Shy type huh? Or well I guess just never found mister right huh? Yea well, I wish ya luck. Admittedly never really had much luck there either..." She sighed, her shoulders slumping as her mind wandered back to Alastair. Her first crush coming into the Vandenreich, tch...he'd briefly had a thing with Sophia, and now he was dating someone in TG. And uh....someone a lot more ...full figured. Tch. Whatever.... hopefully the guy was happy with ... all that.

"Uh... I'm not really an expert on the subject. But if I liked someone, I'd probably just start hittin on em. I never was the subtle type." Hm, maybe that was the problem.

MENINAS MCALLON

“I suppose I should have guessed that punching all my opponents in the face would only get me so far.” Meninas answered with a touch of self deprecating humour. “I’ll be glad to learn from you whenever you have a few minutes to spare.” She was well aware of her own lack of knowledge when it came to certain areas and while she was alright in most areas, the Sternritter wouldn’t say she was a prodigy in a lot of them. A laugh escaped her then. “Just keep that tail where I can see it next time.”

“I can barely work a phone.” She answered with a small smile, appreciating Ehefra’s pat on the back. “I’m probably the worst with technology in the entire Vandenreich.” Meninas was certainly thankful that she hadn’t been put in the R&D department as who knows what might have happened. She was comfortable with her current role though and had no complaints.

“I suppose I am. I’m anxious around people in general until I get to know them. Don’t know why but I’ve always been that way. If I’m fighting it’s a different story but put me in a room with someone I don’t know and I’m a mess.” She admitted, before noticing Ehefra’s reaction to the topic as a whole and adding. “Sorry if I brought up bad memories. I guess we’re both unlucky when it comes to relationships.”

When Ehefra mentioned her own method for how she acted with people she liked, Meninas’s jaw dropped. “I wish I had your courage. I’d never be able to do that, I’d just trip over my own tongue.”

A part of her did wonder though if perhaps just pinning her crush to the wall and showing affection that way would work for her. She’d always been a physical girl and maybe that was her issue? Actions did speak louder than words, after all. Yet, she was getting well ahead of herself and the simple truth was that she didn’t even know if she’d ever find a guy she liked. Maybe there was truth to her brother's teasing and that she might be more interested in people of her own gender.

Ehefra snorted softly and gave a dismissive wave of her hand. "Well it depends on how hard you punch them in the face, and if you can get to their face. But yea, having a few options is always nice in any strategy." She chuckled, flashing a little smile at the woman as their drinks arrived, giving a little nod to the bartender before sipping her own. And of course, almost choking when Meninas made that comment, coughing a few times and then blinking at the Ritter.....

"OH, right my actual tail...Ahahah. I'll be sure to do that." She wheezed. Naturally, it wasn't often people talked about her tail, and so she had, briefly, thought that the girl was being a little fresh. "I'll be sure to ensure you can keep eyes on my 'Tail' all you like." She snickered, wiping her mouth with a napkin and cleaning up a bit of her drink she'd spilled on her wrist.

"I doubt that. We have plenty of individuals awful with Technology. Thanks to the demons, especially in some places in America, people have been just as isolated as you in some instances. So I wouldn't worry too much about all that." She assured the woman. A little....unsure about the topic of relationships as it came up.

"I woulnd't be. It's gotten me into trouble. A little subtlety might have done me some good in the past...." She thought about ....well...just about all of her interactions in that department. Ira.....Natasha.... Candice. The grip she had on her drink tightened slightly and she then straightened her shoulders.

"But yknow. That comes with time. And it's not like there's any rush. Take your time with that stuff. Eventually Mr Right will show up. Even if ya'd rather they didn't." She chuckled softly.

MENINAS MCALLON

When the drinks arrived, Meninas curiously took a sip of hers, interested to know if it was quite as strong as the ale back home. It wasn’t bad and the pink haired woman was pleased enough. The amount of times she’d wandered in on her brothers completely drunk out of their minds must have been in the hundreds. They’d been lightweights, as they’d been when it came to most things to be honest. Only once had they challenged her to a drinking game and she was the last one standing that night. It was a fond memory in a way, probably one of best ones she had with them.

She smiled as Ehefra spoke about how having more strings to her bow would be useful and Meninas didn’t have any arguments with that. Her bow work wasn’t the best for the start and the Sternritter still couldn’t get the damn thing to activate whatever special ability it had. It just fired standard reishi arrows, no matter what Meninas did. The topic of weapons came up again as Ehefra suddenly spat out a mouthful of booze in response to something Meninas had said. The pink haired woman was completely baffled by the reaction and the only real response was one of her standard blinks, her expression blank. Meninas had no idea what she’d said that had garnered that reaction. In the end, all she said was, looking confused. “How many tails do you have?” Swing and a miss.

“Happy to hear it’s not just me.” She’d then say when the topic turned to technology, her smile returned. “I was worried that I’d be the only one here who struggled with it.”

Meninas wasn’t quite sure what to say at first when the Administrator spoke further about her lack of subtlety. After thinking about it though, she mused, the self depreciation returning for a moment. “Well, at least you know when you come across someone you like. I don’t think I’d know if they stood in front of me with a sign saying so.”

When Ehefra then went on to offer her a little advice, the Sternritter would pause again, thinking back over her own past for a moment, before seeming to at least come to one conclusion. “I think that maybe it’s a case of Miss.Right instead of Mr in my case.”

Taking another sip of her ale, she couldn’t help but feel a little pleased at uttering that particular line out loud. It’d been bothering her for a while and now she’d said it, things started to make sense.
