A bar on the mainland- Sunday evening

Kitty didn't think there was a huge deal in turning twenty-one, considering she wasn't a huge drinker and also she'd been running a bar since she was eighteen. But there were some things you just had to go out and do, especially when the next "big" birthday was thirty and she wasn't ready to think about that yet.

Once they'd gotten to the bar, they found a booth where they could sit, and Kitty went up to get their drinks totally legally for the first time (in the States). As she returned, placing them on the table before taking her seat, she admitted, "Okay, that did feel kind of cool."

[For he who now gets to date a girl of legal drinking age!]

Clint clapped for Kitty as she came back to the table, and took the bottle of beer she'd gotten him. "All that time working at Caritas has made you a pro," he said. "Did the guy check your ID? It's no fun if they skip that."

"Now you're a real grownup. You still can't rent a car, but that's no really a big deal," Clint teased.

"And drive them too. I'm an awesome driver," Clint insisted. "A little out of practice from Fandom and the city, but still."

"You are here more than there," Clint said. "Now I'm wondering if I should switch mine when I renew it."

"That's going to mean taking a new license picture though. I don't know if that's a good idea," Clint said, at least partly teasing.

Clint laughed at that. "Hey birthday girl, I'm the one who's supposed to be telling you how pretty you are. And you are, you know."

"That I love you?" Clint guessed. "That you're awesome?"

"Oh, absolutely," Clint said. "Along with the promise that I'll do whatever needs to be done to make you feel loved." After a moment, he added, "You can take that as dirty as you want it to be."

"Right, you were never dirty before I came along, Ms. Leather Pants," Clint said with a smirk. "You were a young, innocent flower or something."

"I bet people wanted to date you, they just didn't say anything," Clint insisted. "Their loss, my gain."

"I can't complain either," Clint said. "Did your friends call you or anything today to wish you a happy birthday?"
so_hawkward: ([posi] laughing)

"Aww, he's so sweet," Clint said, laughing. "He does kind of grow on you after a while."

"He's a good drinking partner," Clint said, taking a long sip of beer. "Lack of small talk can sometimes be a welcome thing."

"Not in total silence, but I felt a lot less awkward around him than your other friends," Clint said. "Um, not that they tried to make me feel awkward or anything, that was all me."

Clint shrugged like he didn't know, even though he totally did. "They're all really powerful. Which is nice, because they're also good guys, and it's always nice to have good guys on your side. It's just... a little intimidating."
so_hawkward: ([posi] looking down)

[personal profile] so_hawkward 2014-01-14 04:03 am (UTC)(link)
"It does, yeah," Cling said, laughing. "A good kind of dork like you?"
so_hawkward: ([posi] covering my smile)

[personal profile] so_hawkward 2014-01-14 05:45 am (UTC)(link)
Clint scoffed at that. "Come on, who wouldn't want to be friends with you?"

"Well, bad guys are already mostly crazy, so they don't count," Clint said. "Weird people are also crazy, and roommates... well, I don't have a lot of experience there but the internet says roommates tend to be weird too, so I think my point still stands." The 'so there' was being silently implied by Clint's smile.
