The party was busted, so much for boozing!
Rinoa smashed the Coors Beer down the bar top, shattering the bottle.
"Hey…" Zell started, eyeing the trickle of liquor dripping from a crack in the bottleneck. "What's buggin' you?" He cocked an eyebrow at the raven-haired girl.
"N-N-Nothing." Rinoa sobbed, wiping away a tear from her cheek with her shirt hem.
"It's Quisty, huh?"
Rinoa bursted out in tears at the sound of her lover's name, and started bawling like there was no tomorrow. "S-S-She wan-wanted…wanted…. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!"
Zell scooted his bar stool next to Rinoa's and patted her on the back. "It's alright, let it all out, girl."
"She wanted apples and I wanted bananas and we got into an argument, and she said…said……I NEEDED TO GROW UP!!! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!"
"Hey, yo!" Zell nudged the girl by her shoulder with his hand.
Rinoa stopped her bawling, and sniffled.
"Now pay attention, this is what you people do." He grabbed his beer, and placed a new bottle in front of Rinoa. "Do this."
He popped his bottle open and chugged deeply, wiping froth from his upper lip with the back of his hand.
Rinoa blinked and did as she was told, awkwardly mimicking her friend.
Zell grunted. "Huh! Girls!"
Rinoa opted the same slouched position and furrowed brow. "Girls!"
"Can't live with them!" Zell chirped.
"Can't live without them!"
"Aaaah…" He patted Rinoa on the shoulder. "The Darkness is strong in this one!"
Rinoa smiled weakly.
An awkward silence.
With an unearthly raging howl, Quistis broke the doors open and charged towards the bar. "RINNNNNNYYYYYYYYY!!! I'M SOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRYYYYYYYYYYY!!!"
"I'M SORRY TOO, QUISTYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!"
The two girls met in the center of the room, clutching at each other, each apologizing profusely. And within a second they were gone, and Zell was left alone.
"Huh!" He swigged. "Girls."
