Synopsis Roselyn looks for a job and Abby asks for help.
Date January 14, 2009

Old Lucy's

Nicolas sits at his usual spot at the bar, his coat sitting on it's usual stool next to him. He leans against the bar with a bottle of beer in his hand.

Roselyn walks into the bar and looks around the room. She walks over to the bar and takes a seat, she takes off her jacket and lays it off the to the side. She looks around behind the bar looking at all of the drinks behind there, watching for any of the bartenders.

Nicolas glances over to the new arrival, offering a nod in greeting before he looks back to his beer, taking a long pull from the bottle.

Roselyn smiles and nods back to the man on the other side of her. She looks for the bartender hoping to look for a job and a good drink.

Nicolas glances up to the television above the bar, watching the program for a while as he drains the last of his beer and signals for another from the bartender.

Roselyn continues to sit there then waits for the bartender to get finished with the other man before ordering herself a drink.

Nicolas glances back at the woman next to him, offering a nod. "Hey." He says before he nods a thanks to the bartender as his drink arrives, placing a few bills on the bar top.

Roselyn smiles to the man, "Hi. How are you?

Roselyn smiles to the man, "Hey, how are you?" she says looking at him then signals for the bartender, "Could I get a shot of Goldschlagger and a screwdriver please?" she says before turning back to the man.

Nicolas shrugs his shoulders as he takes a drink from the new bottle, glancing back to the woman. "Not a whole lot. Taking some time off and drinking." He says with a chuckle.

Roselyn smiles and takes the drinks then nods to the bartender, "Thank you." she tells him. She takes the shot in full then takes a drink of her screwdriver and turns to the man, "That sounds kool, I'm here looking to get hired and drink." she says with a grin, "My name is Roselyn."

Nicolas nods his head and chuckles. "Sounds like a plan. A job? Here? I know the owner. She may be here at some point. I don't know." He says before taking another swig. "I'm Nick."

Abby has arrived.

Roselyn nods, "Yeah, got bored so I figured I'd come here drink, and find a job." she says with a smile, "That's awesome. I sure hope she will hire me." she says to him. "Nice to meet you."

Nicolas sits at the bar, talking with Roselyn as he drinks his beer. He nods his head. "I don't know if they're hiring or not though. But it never hurts to ask." He says before he takes a pull from his beer bottle.

Roselyn smiles, "I will, I really need a job so I'm hoping they will." she says looking at him, "So you come here often?"

Out of the back room comes a blonde, hair up, scarf around neck, purse over shoulder and jacket over arm. Not on shift tonight, but descending from the residence up the stairs. Some tiredness, but not to the extent of the day previous. She's had things to do, set things in motion, get them done.

Nicolas nods his head as he looks to Roselyn. "Well, third time here, but been coming here more and more often. The people are great, the bartenders are pretty nice. Should have been here yesterday. Almost had a bar fight." He says with a chuckle.

Roselyn smiles, "That's kool." she says still smiling, "Damn, too bad I missed it, could've been fun to see." she says with a grin. She drinks about half of her screwdriver then sets it down on the bar.

"I'm sure it wasn't that fun to see" Comes the southern drawl from Abby, swinging past the business side of the counter across from them. "Nico" A dip of her head to the technopath. "Going to see you here every night?"

Nicolas looks to Abby as he hears her voice. "Hey Abby." He says, raising his beer bottle towards her. "You just might. Cheap drinks, good atmosphere and free TV. What more can a guy ask for?" He asks before he looks to Roselyn. "This is Roselyn. She's lookin' for a job."

Roselyn smiles and nods to Abby, "Hi, I am lookin for a job like Nick said. I really need one and I was wondering if you guys are hiring?" she says looking at Abby.

There's a hesitant pause, not a bad one, as if Abby's trying to decide something. "Got a resumee? Isabelle's alwasy looking for someone good. I'm Abigail, or the Nun. Or Abby as Nico here calls me" She offers her hand to Roselyn with an honest smile.

Nicolas smirks as he looks to Abby. "Nico? Better than Ford or Flirt." He says with a chuckle. He looks to Roselyn. "Abby here is one of the good bartenders I was tellin' you before."

Roselyn shakes her head then extends her hand, "Not with me, but I could get one for you I'm sure." she says with a smile, "Nice to meet you." she says to Abby, "That's kool, she seems pretty nice." she tells him with a grin. "Nice nickname by the way."

"Nico fits. I'll stick with that, till I find something better" Abby grips roselyn's hand firmly, giving it a squeeze before letting go. "I wasn't, last night. I get touchy when i'm really exhausted. But, bring it in with you next time, and i'll warn isabelle, or you can leave your name and number" Abby grabs a pad from beneath the counter and a pen, passing it over. 'And I'm sure she can call you and talk. If you've seen coyote ugly, then, that's pretty much what this place is, unless your me" She grins before looking to Nick "Can I talk to you? Just for a second over at the other end"

Nicolas nods his head. "Yeah. I like it better than the others ones." He says before he looks to Abby and tilts his head slightly. "Uhh..sure." He says before he looks to Roselyn. "Excuse me for a moment." He says before he stands and heads to the other end of the bar.

Roselyn nods, "Okay I will." she says to Abby then takes the pen and paper and writes down her name and number. "Yeah I've seen that movie, great movie." she says with a smile, "I like that, I used to dance in a nightclub, so I have some experience in dancing." she says with a grin then nods, "Okay, No problem." she says as she downs the rest of her drink then waves to the bartender, "Can I get an Irish car bomb, a shot of Goldschlagger, and another Screwdriver please?"

Down to the other side, awa from other people, and where, thogh she still keeps her voice low so they can't be overheard. "My roomate.. is going to help me get new ID. I need to.. disappear, or well, I need where I live, to disappear. I know another tehcnopath, but.. I want to not involve them in this all. Can you do, what we talked, the other day? I'll pay you, to do it." She leans against the bar, watching nick.

Nicolas looks to Abby and raise his eyebrow slightly. "Anther technopath?" He asks, a bit to himself. "Interesting." He says before he nods. "Yeah. I'll give it a shot and see what I can do." He says softly as he looks at her. "Just need some information. The address and some information on you. Birthday, last name and the like. So I can find the information and get rid of it."

Roselyn pays for her drinks that she's ordered so far then takes her shot of Goldschlagger and drinks it all, she takes her Irish car bomb and drops the shot glass then chugs all of it in one go. She rests for a second then downs her screwdriver also in one go. "Thanks for the drinks. Can I get another round of those please?" she says looking at the Bartender.

"I'm not going to tell you who, so get that look off your face Nicolas. You won't need to erase me. I need ot keep me on the.. grid or whatever you call it. I have obligations and bills to pay, I just need the ID i'm getting to be.. a living breathing person too" But that's concluded and after a moment hesitation she leans over to try and give a quick chaste peck to the cheek. 'Thank you"

Nicolas smirks and nods. "Alright. So pretty much, make a fake ID valid. No prob. Just give me the stats on it and I'll get it all done. I don't know how long it's going to take though." He says before she pecks his cheek. "No prob."

'Pretty much" and with that, nick is released from thier chat by the ringing of the blonde's phone and a puzzled look. "I have to go. Roselyn, i'll tell Isabelle!" She calls out. "You can have Nico back, i'm done with him. Be nice to him!" and with that, she's heading for the emergency exit, and to leave the bar.

Roselyn pays the bartender for the next round of drink and picks up her shot of Goldschlagger, and drinks all of it. She picks up her other shot drops it into the glass of Guiness and chugs all of it in one go just as the first one. She takes her screwdriver then drinks all of it again as she did with the first one. The glasses all laid out in front of her, "Bye thank you a lot." she says with a smile slurring her words quite a bit, "I will. I promise." she says with a grin then turning to look at Nick.

Nicolas smiles as he nods. "Take care Abby. Need anything else, let me know. Don't forget to drop off what I need." he says before he heads back to his seat, taking up his beer and taking a long drink.

Abby waves to Nick, roseyln while into the phone "Whats wrong Niki?" her departing words as she's firmly out the door, leaving the two to thier own devices.

Roselyn smiles at Nick, "She's pretty nice." she says looking at him, "Can I buy you a drink?" she says looking at him then turning to the bartender once more, "Could I get two Irish Car Bombs, Another shot of Goldschlagger, and another Screwdriver please?" she asks as she lays down some more money.

Abby has left.

Nicolas nods his head as he looks to Roselyn. "Sure. A drink would be great." He says before he looks to the bartender. "Can I get another beer as well?" He asks before killing the last of his beer.

Roselyn smiles and takes the drinks sliding him one of the Irish Car Bombs, "Cheers." she says before taking her third shot of Goldschlagger, then dropping her other shot into the Mug of Guiness then chugging it all in one go. "That's what I call a damn good drink." she says with a smile then taking a sip of her third Screwdriver and setting it back on the bar.

Nicolas takes up his shot glass and follows suit, chugging the pint of Guinness, finishing a split second after Roselyn does. He nods in agreement. "Damn right it is." He says with a chuckle.

Roselyn smiles, "So what do you do?" she says looking to Nick and taking another drink of her Screwdriver.

Nicolas takes a drink from his beer before he looks to her. "I test security of corporate networks." He says with a chuckle before he looks at her. "What about you?"

Roselyn nods, "That's kool. Well currently I don't do anything, That's why I'm looking for a job, just recently quit working at a Nightclub called XXXtasy Ranch, but quit because of some complications." she says with a smile, "That's why I really want to work here, because I will be able to meet new people, dance, and still have a damn good time." she says with a grin looking at Nick.

Nicolas nods his head and chuckles. "XXXtasy? Sounds more like a strip club than a nightclub." He says with a grin before taking a drink from his beer. "I think you could do good here. If you don't mind dancin' on the bar that is. Though Abby doesn't dance on the bar, but she seems to do pretty well."

Roselyn smiles, "Yeah, It was a strip club. I just call it a Nightclub so I don't seem like too much of a slut." she says with a grin, "I love to dance so dancin on the bar wouldn't be bad at all."

Nicolas chuckles and nods. "Well, then the name fits." He says as he looks at her. "Well, I think if you worked there then you can work here. Dancing on the bar should be a lot easier."

Roselyn smiles, "Yeah, but it was the only place that would hire me, especially since I had just moved here." she says looking at him, "I sure do hope they hire me, I would love to work here." she says to Nick, "I'm sorry if I'm bothering you, I just don't have any friends and I don't know anyone, that's why I'm here." she says with a small smile.

Nicolas shrugs his shoulders and smirks. "It's cool. I don't mind. Bar talk is always the best kind." He says taking a drink from his beer. "Especially when you're drinking."

Roselyn smiles, "Okay kool." she says looking at him, "Yeah, I'm pretty sure after this I"m gonna be completely smashed, I"ve had Quite a few drinks. I have had 4 shots of Goldschlagger, 3 Irish Car Bombs, and 4 Screwdrivers so I'm pretty gone already." she says looking at Nick.

Nicolas looks to Roselyn and smirks. "Well, you've certainly out done me. In the time I've been here, I've had 1 shot of something, 2 car bombs and 3 beers."

Roselyn smiles, "Sometimes I can get a little carried away, especially on days like this one." she says looking to Nick. "So…."

Nicolas chuckles and nods. "What do you mean days like this? Had an interesting day?"

Roselyn nods, "Yeah, you could say that." she says looking at him, "Been kind of rough trying to find a job, keep up bills, and still try to make new friends, also try to have a good time, but shit haunts you that you can't forget really, especially when something has happened close to this place." she says furrowing her brow, "Anywayz."

Nicolas nods his head. "Yeah. I tend to let the past stay just that. The past. I don't like to dwell on it." He says before he takes another drink from his beer, looking at the bottle to see how much is left before he takes another drink.

Roselyn nods, "Yeah, I try to stay away from it as much as possible." she says with a small smile, then drinks the rest of her drink then slides her jacket on, "Getting a little cold, So what do you like to talk about?" she says with a grin looking at Nick.

Nicolas shrugs his shoulders as he looks at her. "I don't know. I don't usually try to think of a topic. Usually just comes out and the course takes a natural path." He says as he looks at her. "Why? Have something on your mind?"

Roselyn shakes her head, "Not really, just kind of blank at the moment, have had one too many drinks." she says with a smile, "How long have you been in New York?"

Nicolas smirks and nods. "I'm getting there." He says as he looks at her. "I've been here for about a year or so. What about you?"

Roselyn nods, "I've been here about 3 year. Lived over in Berlin, Germany. Was born and raised there until both parents died then moved here. You'd think I'd have friends by now or be with family, but I don't. Kind of have kept to myself for the most part, learning how things go here, but I have no family that I know of so I just stick to drinking mostly, tends to help me forget." she says with grin.

Nicolas nods his head as he looks at her. "I'm sorry to hear about your family, but I'm sure things will pick up for you. Just might be a late bloomer or something. I don't know." He says with a chuckle.

Roselyn laughs, "No worries, it's all good." she says with a wide smile, "I probably am, I think I might have some relatives here in New York, but I don't even know any names so I keep looking just in case." she says with a smile, "I've tried breaking into a few places to try to get info, but no luck so I left." she says still smiling.

Nicolas raises an eyebrow slightly. "Breaking in? I hope that's a metaphor or something." He says with a chuckle. "If not, might wanna keep that on the down low." He takes a drink from the beer. "Might just wanna open the phonebook and call everyone that has the same last name and see what you can find."

Roselyn smiles, "Yeah, I didn't really break in sorta just walked in without being seen walking in per say." she says to him, "I wouldn't really break in somewhere don't have the balls to do that." she says with a giggle, "I never really thought of that, but It's a good idea, I've tried tracking down my father's military records, but no luck there." she says with a grin.

Nicolas thinks for a moment. "well, why don't you hire someone to investigate it for you?" He takes another drink from his bottle. "I'm sure you'll find something. New York is a big place."

Roselyn smiles, "I would but I don't have that kind of money. It costs too much so I will probably do some more research then look in the phonebook also." she says still smiling.

Nicolas nods his head. "Well, I wish you luck in your search." He says before he takes another drink, draining the last of the beer in the bottle. He sets the empty bottle on the bar top.

Roselyn smiles, "Thank You." she says smiling at him. "Well I think I probably should go, don't want to get lost on my way home or worse." she says looking at him, "Maybe I'll see you around." she says with a grin.

Nicolas nods and smiles. "No problem." He says, turning to look at her. "Yeah, I'm usually here if not somewhere else. I'm sure I'll see you around. Especially if you get a job here. Then I'll see you a lot." He says before he picks up his jacket and puts it on.

Roselyn giggles and nods, "Well then I'll see you later, It was good talking to you." she says with a smile, "Thanks for talking to me." she says before standing up then walks towards the door.

Nicolas offers a wave. "Nice talking to you." He calls out to her before he pays for his drinks and heads out himself.
