kersen: (male: bite)
One of Kersen's bartenders had had the early part of the evening off, and so he'd helped out behind the bar while they were short staffed. He didn't mind bartending; it was kind of fun, actually, and he'd taken the opportunity to dress the part. Over his form fitting black leather trousers, he was wearing a slate gray vest over a royal purple oxford shirt. There were silver sleeve garters over his sleeves (rolled up his forearms to reveal at least some of his tattoos), and a silver bowtie hung untied around his neck. He was devoid of makeup aside from smokey eyes and purple nail polish.

He was shaking a cocktail shaker full of pomegranate martini when he spotted Felix Harrowgate walk in. He was a bit hard to miss. Kersen's lips pulled up into a little smile, and he waved with his free hand.

Felix was, indeed, dressed for spring and looking in a blue jacket and trousers, with a floral-patterned shirt and rich violet tie, and a pocket square to perfect his look. Jazzmin deserved no less than his best -- and naturally he enjoyed drawing attention as he strolled in and immediately caught the eye of the owner.

With a smile that ignored all else, he made directly for the bar, and sat where a spot just happened to open up for him. Felix laced tattooed fingers on the bar, and waited for Kersen to have a moment for him.

"Does the state of your tie indicate you're already having a good night?" Felix teased good-naturedly once he approached.

"I felt this evening that I absolutely required a drink mixed by your very hands, so... both," Felix laughed, settling comfortably in his place. "You know I like bourbon, but whatever will keep you here talking to me, I'll drink."

Felix accepted the drink, and tasted it. Surprisingly strong despite the citrus in the flavor and the easing hint of mint, and he smiled when he lowered the glass. "Delicious," he pronounced, "I feel like I've just been woken refreshed for the evening. I do hope it's not called... some part of delicate ladies' anatomy, or something like."

harrowgate: (you bore me)
Felix's brows darted straight up at that, and he looked Kersen in the eyes knowingly. That was beyond 'on the nose' -- that was thumbing his nose right at Felix's preconceptions, whether he meant to or not. Felix, however, rather liked that sort of thing. Not to mention, he liked the drink.

"If it has that much power, I wonder what it will do to a breathing body? Perhaps I'll be granted fantastic powers."

Felix tasted his drink again, and this time he kept it closer at hand for more sips. "Does that mean I can monopolize your time? I fear I may have to apologize for my friend Robin's behavior at Finlay's book launch party."

"Oh, this time, I think I am responsible," Felix said pleasantly. "If we're retiring, shall I buy a bottle for us to share in private? I'd be a dastardly customer otherwise."

Felix gave Tabitha one of his enigmatic eyebrow quirks, as if he knew exactly what she meant though he had no idea. Presumably, she thought him Kersen's latest playmate. She may or may not be correct.

Taking his drink with him, Felix slid off his seat and strolled after Kersen, back to the office. "If it weren't for all the responsibility, I should think it a very satisfying thing, owning a business," he mused, because Felix frequently talked just to talk. "You have this entire domain that belongs to you, and you can do what you like in it. Lord and master of the entire place."

Felix noted the chair, but he lingered, perusing the art on the walls unhurriedly. There was much more to Kersen than outward appearances, and, Felix suspected, his vampirism wasn't even half of it.

"That is at least in part why I wanted to come clean about Robin," said Felix, turning from the art, toward Kersen. "I don't know precisely what he did, but I expect whatever it was, it wasn't very fair. You're honest about yourself, and he... is the world's first liar, I'm afraid."

Felix knew Robin's history a bit too well, and gave a shrug of one shoulder. He'd meant what he said very literally, even if it could be construed figuratively. "You knew who he was already, then. That's something of a relief. But if his blood tastes... like I imagine it might, then no, he wasn't playing fair."

He had almost made a comparison that really, truly, didn't need to be made.

"Robin and I have something of a sexually competitive relationship. I was at the party with Shannon, and Robin wanted to be sure I knew what I was missing. I'm relieved you don't feel manipulated, but, you see what I mean when I say that I was partly responsible."

harrowgate: (side glance)
"We both find you appealing," Felix corrected in a rumbling purr, though he didn't apologize. He half sat, half leaned on the edge of Kersen's desk, smiling his prettiest, most enigmatic tiny smile. "I couldn't decide which one of you made me more jealous."

harrowgate: (pout)
"You would not have enjoyed the fight that ensued between Shannon and I if I had," Felix assured him. It wasn't for lack of interest that he'd refrained from flirting with Kersen, but something rather more thorny he couldn't come to terms with. He just didn't know how to stop himself.

Multiple friendships had been deeply damaged because of Felix's inability to stop himself.

"Honestly, Robin isn't half the expert in jealousy that is Shannon Teverius."

Felix took another drink before answering. "He does now. Rather, he knows that I have sex with other people. I sleep with Shannon. That is our arrangement -- that, and my promise that I don't tell him who, or what, or when."

As little as he liked Kersen's insinuation, Felix decided to ignore it, except for a momentarily pursed mouth and disapproving glance. "Robin likes sex. We're well-suited in that regard. Being my friend outside of that?" He lifted one shoulder. "You're miles ahead in that regard."
