Naruto dropped another ice cube into his glass and listened to the clink it made before pouring in the liquid. Two ice cubes was the ideal amount of vodka, he reasoned to himself as he poured the vodka at about half way through the ice cubes. It was enough to cool the liquor and it wouldn't water it down. He placed the topper back on the bottle and was about to take a sip when he heard a voice speak to him.

"You know how to drink your liquor"

He stopped with his glass about raised to his lips and turned to see a beautiful blond woman looking at him.

"Mind if I join you?" She asked, taking a few deliberate steps forward.

Naruto smiled and rubbed the back of his head sheepishly. "If you want to" He said, raising his left hand and moving the gold band on his index finger up and down with his thumb.

The woman saw this and pouted a little before turning around and leaving. Naruto turned back to the bar and tightened his bow tie before finally taking a sip of his drink.

"You're out pretty late" Said the barman returning as he wiped a glass in his hand. "For a married man whose not looking to snag a pretty lady. You waiting for a party?" He asked.

Naruto looked up at the flat screen TV that was playing in the corner of the bar. MSNBC was running a banner that showed the latest news and stock market trends. They were reporting a bunch of police cars pulling up haphazardly to a building.

"Actually" Said Naruto taking a sip. "The party's just getting started"
