    Cantata gasps and stiffens when Fettina pinches her, clearly not expecting it. A very noticeable blush emerges on her cheeks as she nods in agreement, averting her gaze. She senses the change in demeanor from the two drow soon enough, however, raising an eyebrow and giving Dena an inquisitive look.

    "Come on, you must remember. Lots of lights, lots of babes. She dragged me away before I could finish the evening with you guys I think--" She pauses, seeing her two old friends react. "Wait. Wasn't that around the same time that you..." Her face falls. "Aw, don't tell me it happened right there."

    Kirk's expression goes stoney and he manages a complex set of emotions, none particularly pleasant. He shakes his head a moment later. "We really don't need to go into that."

    Dena turns to Tina as she continues to gently and affectionately rub Kirk's neck. "Yeah, I don't think Catata would want to hear about Tina's exes anyway. We'd be here all night and then some. Maybe you should tell her about the poker game instead. Not that I'd you to give her the wrong impression of me." She winks, betraying no other emotions than mirth for the moment.

    It... might be wise to warn me of anything Iíd have to watch out for her, Cantata comments with a concerned look towards Fettina. Is someone out there who would want to hurt her? She puts on a cheery face, though.
    Later, that is. A poker game sounds like a much more enjoyable topic, she comments, taking a sip of a fruity cocktail sheís ordered.

    The telfling shrugs unconcernedly.

    "It's no big deal," he says, poker-faced. "But sure, a friendly face. The name's Cyrin."

    He takes a swallow of the beer, looking Atreyu in the eye.

    "Good taste."

    "I have been in some fights and taken some hits since you saw me before." They both know what "before" means, so there's no use going into detail. "Maybe you can take a closer look later, to see all the new ones. I could see if I remember how I got them."

    "No, uh, 'course not," Fettina promptly agrees. The last thing she wanted was for any of them to be uncomfortable. "And hey, Dena, well, why not? You're trying to give her the wrong impression of me, you know. I don't have 'exes', see." She frames her fingers like a picture in a gesture that seems to say 'here's how it is'. "Unless you count exes and ohs. I just have people I'm electing not to see at the present time." She winks and sticks out her tongue.

    "But, hey, the poker game wasn't such a big deal. It was Kirk's idea, after all. Or was it Dena's? Man, that would give the wrong impression, wouldn't it?"

    Oh good. Nobody's dwelling. "I'm not quite that presumptuous." The drow starts to relax again. "Dena's just a very giving person."

    "I am a very giving person, which is why it was my idea, but that was also a very special occasion. Something for the history books no doubt." Dena gestures at Tina. "Or at least her social media accounts. I know she wants this." The gorgon returns the gesture and sticks out her tongue at her friend. Her considerably longer, forked, tongue.
    She looks to Cantata and switches to sign language for a moment. "But: don't worry. Tina: haven't had: that much: trouble: with: exes: or: [no identifiable sign]: from what: I've heard: (so) maybe: I am giving: you: the wrong: impression."
    She raises her eyebrows as she turns her attention back to her friend. "Right, Tina? It's all still fun and games in Tina-land?"

    That seems to ease Cantataís worries a little. Worried about: keeping her safe: - although: I hear sheís: not too bad a shot she replies in sign with a fond glance back to Fettina.

    Oh, so thatís the kind of attention you like? The empath leans over as she teases her companion before addressing the table. I take it the stakes were quite generous? A nervous look surfaces as Dena asks about Tinaís current goings on - is she going to use this as an excuse to bring it up?

    "Well, a pleasure to meet ya then, Cyrin." Atreyu pauses to take another draw on his cigarette, turning his head to breathe out behind him, avoiding sending the stuff directly at either telfling or minotaur bartender, though the aroma carries a fair distance anyway.

    Still, one should always know how to smoke politely.

    Speaking of which. "Lemme know if it bothers ya. Shouldn't, mind, never known anyone object to euphoric, but I ain't good company if I force it on ya." His voice, and accent are both quite rough, but his mannerisms suggests Atreyu must have been brought up in polite society. "An' if y'don't mind me asking, are folk like you free to come and go as you please round these parts? Would be a nice change from back home. Not many places there where folks like you or I would be welcomed. I'm guessing so, what with the wonderfully diverse sorts o' people in here n' out n' around, from what I've seen."

    "Hey hey hey, now, I can keep things very discrete if somebody asks me to. But if nobody asks, well, that's their own fault, isn't it?"

    Fettina does not jump on the thing she wants to bring up quite yet. She wants to finish talking about the poker game first. Or maybe she'll segue into it another way. "All fun and games, yeah. Just like poker!" She grins and winks. "We kept letting Kirk win."

    "As if. Dena can be a challenge, but you might as well have put your cards up on the table with how you play. I was impressed you managed to sit still a couple of times you had a good hand." Kirk's not letting her get away with that. Tease all she likes, but suggesting she let him win is clearly too far.

    "As if I would let anyone win, Tina." The very idea is preposterous even as a joke! "As much as I hate to admit it. He got lucky and won fair and square. But that's just poker for you. Next time we'll play a more skill-based game." She smiles, well aware that poker was all about skill too. Just depended on how many games you played.

    I hate to believe him - but you arenít terribly subtle, love. Remember our first dance? Itís not an event Cantata seems to plan on forgetting herself anytime soon, if the fond little glimmer in her eyes is anything to go by. Maybe I can try my hand next time? Itís been a while since Iíve had the chance to play. I could even share a few games of my own.

    Tina looks positively taken aback at their accusations, even if Cantie's is sprinkled with sweetness. "I was following Dena's instructions! And of course I have a natural predilection toward throwing money at handsome men. Besides, we already played the 'skill-based' game afterwards." She leans over and says, practically in Cantie's ear, "Kirk won that round too."

    "But I'd sure love it if you joined us for next time, Cantie. Whatever we decide to play."

    "Following Dena's lead was your first mistake, given she lost as well." Kirk shoots Dena a sly smirk.

    "I'm sure we can keep you in touch." Kirk says with an insincere smile. Maybe they can distract Fettina and dodge that bullet.

    This would be far more enjoyable if not for the wedge between Kirk and Cantata. He was really making her into the fifth wheel here. She supposed it was always hard to introduce someone completely new into a group that had been going out for years.
    Kirk probably saw Cantata as yet another Tina-friend that was going to get dumped by the end of the year. Dena didn't want to make assumptions though.
    "He's right you know, Tina. Unless you were looking at my cards, following another player's lead is not a winning move in poker." And she was pretty sure Tina hadn't been looking at her cards. It'd be like missing a charging bull coming at you, while playing poker with it.
    "But I was under the impression I won that second game. I might be wrong though." She gives Kirk a quick glance behind her sunglasses. She then places her arms on the table and leans forward, her attention now at Cantata. "But you gotta tell us now, what kind of games do you play? Anything we might be familiar with?"

    Cantata almost sputters on her drink as Tina leans into her ear, about as entertained as she is surprised by how raunchily she talks. My, her lover really doesnít do subtle, does she? She coughs into her napkin to clear her throat, raising an eyebrow Kirkís way.

    Well Iím fairly rusty, but I used to play Durak, Disaster and Uno with some coworkers. Donít know if the first two exist here, but I remember being pretty good at the one I know does. As good as you can be in a very chance-driven game, at least. Got pretty into a couple computer games back then too - but itís not quite the same when youíve got screens between you, she adds.

    Doctor Valiance, likely accompanied by his new assistant, steps out of the shoddy skycab he'd rented before proceeding on into the restaurant. "Haven't been to a place like this in ages, haven't had the cash!" Every scrap of material wealth he'd managed to get his hands on over the last few months had gone straight to the Valtech fund, hence his involvement with all sorts of unsavory people. It was all going to be worth it though, once the VIGIL contract fell through! "This is exciting!" He'll offer a small smile back to Felicity before handling seating arrangements. The pair will be escorted to a small table within the restaurant's main dining area.

    It was the cheapest selection. Once Val becomes comfortable, he clasps his hands together. "So, Felicity! Tell me more about yourself. We should become familiar! After all, we're going into business together!"

    "What, exactly, do you want to know? You know my employment history and special abilities already, and I know little enough about you." She suspects Val's desperate, judging by his words and actions, but then so is she. And other than that, she knows nothing. Not where he studied, or what discipline he works under. She has a vague idea that he doesn't work too much with open flame, and he mentioned robotics, but why would a roboticist need a lab tech? Sure he could build one himself for cheaper than her wages.

    There's a short pause. That's a good question! What did he want to know? What was important? He didn't know. He'd never hired anyone before, not like this. "Uhh, well - you know, good question!" A small smile. "Have much of a family?" Perhaps a sensitive question, but hopefully not. As he awaits a response, Valiance glances over the menu. Steak and potatoes! That looked good. A little bit out of his price range, though. Even with the Valtech emergency fund. Unfortunate. Some sort of soup would have to do! "Hmm! Not all that hungry. I'll probably just fill up on bread, get a little soup or something."

    "What about you, my eager assistant?"

    Fettina grins and shrugs, raising her arms in a 'what can you do' gesture. Maybe Dena did win that second round. But Fettina lets her and Cantie talk for a minute, focusing her attention on Kirk.

    That was definitely one of his fake faces. Kirk probably liked to think she couldn't see them, but she attempts to illustrate exactly how incorrect that notion is. She kicks him 'gently' in the shin and daintily clears her throat, shooting him as subtle a glower as she can manage.

    "Yes, and no. Nobody that'd acknowledge me as kin, at least." And that's part of why she was so desperate she took up a job offered in a seedy bar by a man she's never met before.

    It... sounds like her new employer can't afford to eat here, despite volunteering it. And she can't pay up her end if he can't, she couldn't even get a beer in the Den, let alone somewhere as fancy as here. "Soup sounds good to me, too." Hopefully it's a lot of soup. It might be her last meal until payday.

    Oh, what an awkward response. Perhaps he shouldn't have asked? On the other hand, it was just polite. No use feeling strange about it now. "Ah, that's a shame. I'm sure you're a lovely person." He smiles reassuringly. Was it worth asking why? Probably not. "I was very close to my mother. Wouldn't be where I am now without her, I'd say." He eventually settles on a potato chowder of some sort. Nice and filling, but not too expensive. "She passed a few years ago." Long before she could ever learn of his ties with Conference Zeta. For the best, she'd have been disappointed in him for certain. "Soup is good!"

    There's a small sigh. Then, a mischievous little smile forms upon his gaunt face. "You know, there's a reason I like this place so much." He waggles his fingers against the table. "The appetizers are on the house! Buttered breads, as far as the eye can see. Shouldn't get more than two or three baskets, though." Val sits back in his seat, comfortable for the time being.

    "So, what brought you to the Nexus?"

    "My parents. Family tale goes they were house hunting shortly after I was born in some place called Tonbridge. They found a really affordable flat in their local estate agents, but it wasn't in Tonbridge. It was in Inside. They moved in, and couldn't really get back. They settled down quite well, though Mum isn't around any more. She started worshipping a demon cockroach or something, and they all left a couple years ago, to find a new holy land or whatever. She wasn't really the same Mum after she joined them. Was just me, Dad, and my sister." Felicity went for an equally cheap soup, but tomato rather than potato. "How about you? Do you have siblings?" She dunks some of the bread in her soup and folds it before taking a bite of the tomato-y bread. It really is good soup.

    [A Felicitous Dinner]

    Val blinks a few times as Felicity mentions something about a demon cult. That's unfortunate. "Holy land? So, your parents were religious?" He's going to just ignore the demon roach cult thing for now. That's a lot to unpack over dinner. "My grandparents were super into that sort of thing. I'm not particularly." An awkward smile. Then, Felicity mentions siblings. "Several, actually. I'm the youngest of five!"

    He begins to eat. "So! I bet you're interested in knowing what exactly you'll be doing, right?"

    "Mum is. Dad not so much. It's why he stayed here rather than leave with Mum and her friends." Felicity dunks her bread in the soup and takes a bite. "Four siblings, huh? Must have been hellish. I only had one, and we argued a lot. How'd you get on with yours?" She's surprised his family had so many, though he didn't actually say they survived to adulthood.

    Doctor Valiance nods politely as Felicity continues. Once he notices her dunking her bread, he'll do the same. Ah, bread. "Oh, it had its ups and downs." His relationship with the rest of his family was chaotic, for sure, growing up. "We grew up on a farm." Sometimes he missed the pastoral beauty of rural Maine during the wintertime. "It was beautiful. You could always see the stars." There's a small smile. He missed those stars, that dark blue sky. "My sister taught me the constellations, I still remember them. She was really into space, actually." He chuckles a little. These memories were slightly painful. "I wouldn't be doing what I do today without her."

    He sighs as he takes another bite. "Anyway, yeah. Farm. After dad died, mom sold the place. God, when was that? Have to have been '73." There's a shrug. "Never really stayed in touch with my brothers, we were never close."

    "I do miss her, though."
    He had to sacrifice a lot of things when he left the country.
