Lilac was walking down the sidewalk. She took heed to be aware of her surroundings, finding that at night this city was a dangerous one. Lilac didn't have a task this night, but that didn't mean that she wasn't a bit wary or that she didn't have a switchblade tucked away carefully into one of her combat boots. Lilac took a look at the dreary atmosphere as darkness began to creep into the sky and the moon threatened to make its appearance. The concrete was damp because of a recent drizzle and the scent of wet pavement was comforting in its own ways. It made Lilac want to curl up inside of her little apartment and read the night away, but chill and a bit of dampness couldn't stop her from going to one of the local bars. She pulled her jacket closer to her body to prevent some of the bite the wind seemed to have as it swept past, disturbing her loose strands of purple dyed hair. The young woman heard the familiar clamor of laughter and chatter and soon identified the small bar on the corner of Hay's Street, the name granted from its use as a horse cart path a century before all of this new development. Now pavement replaced cobblestone and steel and cement replaced wooden structures. Now dull colored office buildings and apartment were arranged with the metallic satellites and other gear scraping hungrily at the bottom of the sky. It may have appeared dull, but it was usually bustling with the thousands of inhabitants going about their jobs and lives. Currently, other activity was stirring. Criminals ran the night and sent most civilians wisely hiding inside to stay safe as the police force and their associates did their best to protect the innocent. Lilac knew she should be out helping, but they hadn't asked her to and tonight she needed to unwind. Lilac approached the bar, it's flashing sign displaying the title, "The Thirsty Traveler." An odd name, but Lilac knew it well. It was usually her go to spot for a nice drink. Some of the characters there were shady, but it wasn't one totally run by wrong doers. Lilac could certainly handle a bit of riff raff if need be, so she wasn't worried when she entered through the wooden door in front. A small bell announced her arrival as she wiped her boots carefully on the crookedly placed mat at the entrance. Lilac was glad of escaping the wind and made her way towards the bar with confident strides. Others sat at tables arranged around the room, conversing, drinking, and eating. The lighting was dim, fluorescent fixtures hanging from a bleak looking ceiling. It smelled of smoke, alcohol, and grilled food. It had a casual atmosphere for the time being. Lilac took a seat on one of the empty stools and was greeted by a scrawny looking man with salt and peppered hair, white apron dotted with small stains. He had a scratchy stubble along his chin and a few light scars on his face. He offered a curling smile as he cleaned out one the glasses. "Ah, Lilac. What will it be today?"he asked, voice a bit gravelly, but still familiar. Lilac returned the smile with a sly one of her own, fidgeting momentarily with her nails. "Surprise me with one of your beers. I'm up for a change tonight."she replied. "Very well then. I'll pick you a good one, a nice fall brew."the man replied, name tag identifying him as "Robb." Lilac took a discreet look at the patrons behind her, finding none to be really threatening at the moment. She allowed herself to relax a bit as she slid off her coat and rested it on the back of her stool. Now her red and black striped button up flannel was revealed. She casually re-situated her hair and fished some money from where it was safely tucked away on the inside if her pants under her pocket to prevent pick pocketers from doing damage. Robb returned with a cold glass full of an amber liquid. Lilac gave him the cash and took the handle of the glass carefully. She lifted it to her lips and took a hesitant sip before offering a thoughtful look and swallowing. Lilac managed a flash of a grin. "Good choice."she praised Robb. "Pleasure to serve. Give a holler if you need anything, darling."he said before walking away to attend to others. Lilac was left alone with her drink.
