It was January 2nd, the day after Lauren's 18th birthday and she ended up at Ganymede bar with Laurel Zimmerman. It wasn't usual for Lauren to hang out with anyone from the first cohort, but last Halloween she had gone to a party at the aqueduct where she had happened to meet Laurel in a drunken haze and from there they had realized they had more in common than one would have thought. They both were related through Apollo, played music, and generally had the same sense of humour. Tonight they were at a gay bar together as Lauren had finally turned eighteen years old and was legal in New Rome and they were both bisexual, just more things to have in common.

The daughter of Apollo was sitting on the bar stool next to Laurel with a drink in hand. Right now she was currently drinking on the Bacchus special, which tasted amazing and she couldn't believe she had gone so long without having it. At this point Lauren was on drink two and she was looking around the room until she spotted a girl dancing on the rainbow dance floor with a flower crown on and long dirty blonde hair. She leaned over to Laurel, "Listen, listen, listen" She started before she continued on, "Daughter of Venus, her friends dragged her out tonight, but she protested at first claiming she was straight, but really she's still in the closet because her dad would cut her off from the big funds that she gets every week for her 'allowance', probably gets hit on constantly, but claims no one likes her."

This is the second time Laurel was drinking in the past week, something that isn't as common for her. Sure, she likes to have a good time, but she also likes to wake up in the morning refreshed. That didn't happen when she drank. The only reason she was out tonight because her favorite fellow bisexual had just turned 18. To be fair, Laurel didn't know that many bisexuals. Although it was scary how much they had in common, down to the name.

Laurel gives Lauren a blank look, "That got dark." She says, sipping some fruity drink that she hadn't bothered to get the name of. She turns her attention to the girl in question, "The flower crown has me thinking Prosperina. New Rome University student studying art history. Joined the legion late and left early." She figures the last part due to the fact that the girl had no muscles. You can't join the legion and not end up toned.

When Laurel began to tell her that her background story had gotten dark, she nodded. It hadn't been intended to get to that part and for a split second Lauren was having a mini crisis with not knowing what that meant, or if it even meant anything. In order to remedy the thought she took another drink from her Bacchus Special, or whatever it was called. After she listened to what Laurel thought she nodded.

"I mean, Prosperina would be the obvious choice, but art history does seem like a fitting major. Do you think she's gay or bisexual?" Lauren questioned before downing her drink and setting it aside. "Maybe she got stood up tonight and you could go in and dance with her, or maybe she's looking for a strong centurion to pull her in real close!" The daughter of Apollo said with a grin on her face as she ordered her third drink.

Laurel considers Lauren's question seriously, staring at the girl which probably would be creepy if someone noticed. "I'm going to go with bisexual." She says after a pause. To be honest, there wasn't any reasoning behind it, she just went with her kneejerk response. She isn't Sherlock, and she isn't sure she wants to be. Sure, maybe her charging port is scratched up because she's an alcoholic, or maybe she just drinks way too much coffee and has bad aim when its dark.

She laughs at Laurens proposition, shaking her head, "No, no, I don't date girls with flower crowns. That's how you end up getting dragged along to Coachella wearing crochet bras and coming home smelling like weed and cheap vodka." She might be speaking from experience. There was no way to know.

Lauren nodded as she heard the words 'bisexual' come out to guess what the girl's sexual orientation was. It was just about anyone's guess and it could go either way, but the daughter of Apollo could see it and it probably made sense, she knew her original statement was that she was a closeted lesbian, but Lauren could see either way, in truth no one but the individual knew. Her hand reached behind her to grab the drink that she had ordered moments ago and she began to sip on it.

Immediately at Laurel's explanation about dating girls with flower crowns, Lauren began to laugh, it was the funniest thing she had heard in awhile, but there was some truth to it. She began to shake her head and take another sip of her drink. "Do you think straight guys ever come in here pretending to be gay to try and hook up with girls? If so, what do you think their success rate is? I feel like surprisingly enough they might get a hook up from time to time."

Laurel nodded, "Trust me they have. They get hookups too, just not with the people they were expecting." She shrugged, "internalized homophobia or something. Besides, when people get drunk enough anything can happen." Was she speaking from experience? Maybe. She wasn't going to say.

"But if guys come in and start acting like creeps, they're usually kicked out. People keep watch here." Laurel nodded to the older butch ladies behind the bar and on the side of the dance floor. Some of them had helped her out after some guy had started dry humping her and wouldn't get off.

Lauren listened to the other girl as she spoke about how guys did manage to get in and get hookups but it wasn't in the way she had anticipated. It made sense in some ways and the girl just let the info slip out of her brain as she reached for another drink and began to take larger drinks of it. Things hadn't been the best for Lauren right now, sure she was old enough to drink legally in New Rome, but that didn't mean that everything else was right in her life. In one way she wished her truth curse worked in more than yes and no questions because then she wouldn't have indirectly lied to the legacy of Mercury earlier that day.

As she thought back to the obvious heart break he had written all over his face, the one downside to knowing someone too much is that you knew when you hurt their feelings and it was a hard pill for the daughter of Apollo to swallow. She put her hand up to the bartender to order a shot and once in reach she took the shot and downed it slamming the glass back on the table. Hopefully it would be something to numb the pain and guilt she was feeling.

"So Laurel, how often do you come here anyways?" Lauren asked a little bit of her words slurred as the alcohol had started to slowly seep into her blood system as was taking its first few hits on her.
