Forgetting for a while
"Son! There you are!" Arthur approached a very drunk Charlie. "We've been looking for you everywhere."
"Too bad. I'm not going back," Charlie murmured as he drunk another shot of Firewhiskey. "Not yet."
"Charlie, drinking is never the solution," he reasoned in soft voice as he sat next to Charlie.
"But she's gone, Dad. I lost her for good. She's off to her honeymoon and I just...I just need to forget for a while," he said desperately as his eyes quickly filled with tears.
Arthur looked at him and smiled sympathetically. Moments of silence reigned between them. "Still, no need to do it alone. Miss? Another round, please."
