Saiden had been running an errand at the Governor’s mansion. Given the rather clandestine nature of most of his work, it had taken place after dark. Then he'd swung by the kitchens, because the cook there was an old friend. They'd whipped something up together, and had dinner and drinks. The Hali had collected the gossip he'd missed out on during the Ark's latest voyage.

Bidding the other chef a good night, Saiden had stumbled out of the mansion. It was a beautiful night, with a full moon and stars shining. In one hand, he held a bottle of rum that he periodically sipped from. Other than the shorts he wore and the cutlass at his hip, that was all he had. He stumbled down the slopes of Apopo, grinning and singing a sea shanty wildly off-key. Unsurprisingly, the lyrics were dirty.

Despite the wild, free, tropical places Torchline offered, Nate was still drawn to the city, the alleys and backways and people. Despite the danger of it all. He knew how to handle himself, if he really needed. The city was small though, all to easy to wander right out of, if he wasn't careful, and judging by his new upwards slant, he hadn't been careful.

To make matters worse (better?), a voice stumbled towards him, loud and dirty and discordant. Whoever was heading down sounded like a party, looked like a party when he finally came into view. Nate grinned wide, standing still and resting his hands on his hips as the stranger came towards him. "Ahoy sailor!" He called, voice dripping with a badly hidden flirt.

As the voice called out ahead, Saiden glanced up. His eyes traced over the other man. As they did, the cook slowly grinned. ”Ahoy sailor?” There was something weirdly cheerful about his words, though maybe that was just because he was drunk.

Stumbling towards the stranger, the Hali took a swig from his bottle again. "Come on, landlubber, you don't think we actually talk like that, do you?" Once he was closer, he examined the other man's clothes. "I take it you're one of those Outlanders." It wasn't a question.

Taking another drink, Saiden's grin broadened. "So, landlubber. Have you been enjoying your time in Torchline?" His eyes glittered.

"I don't have a fucking clue how you talk." Nate retorted cheerfully, bolder than even he would be usually. The stranger was obviously soaked through with drink, so why couldn't Nate have a little fun too? "I can be a fast learner though."

Now that the other was close enough to look at, Nate did. Slowly, appreciatively. One of his shoulders rolled up, a distracted shrug, at the statement that he was an outlander, but his gaze focused up again at the actual question. "You get a lot of people round here who don't enjoy it?" He teased, grin widening to show off fangs.

"I have been though. The place itself." Nate's eyes smouldered, focused on the other man. "Haven't gotten much of a chance to enjoy the people yet."

Saiden smirked and took a pull from his bottle. ”Well, seeing as you’re a stranger in this land, perhaps you could start with respectfully and work your way up from there.” However, it was clear that he wasn’t actually mad at the stranger’s bold response. If anything, the cook was a bit intrigued.

Smirking a bit, he walked closer to the other man. "I'll be the judge of that." The Hali held out the bottle for the stranger.

Laughing, the sound bright and breezy, he shrugged. "You'd be surprised. Some people find it too sunny and nice." Winking lazily, he cocked his head to the side. "Frankly, you don't seem to be the type who likes it sunny or nice." It was clear from his tone that he didn't see a problem with that.

He raised his eyebrows. "Though I'm curious how you could possibly enjoy Torchline without getting to know its inhabitants. We're the best part." There was no false modesty in Saiden's voice.

”I don’t know if this really the place for me if I have to be respectful to work my way up.” There was enough of a tease in the strangers voice for Nate to feel comfortable pushing that little bit more. His words were the only thin bf he pushed with though, keeping perfectly still as the stranger came closer, except for the way his grin widened.

The bottle was accepted easily, after all, the other man had already drunk from it, and Nate had no qualms of raising it to his own lips and taking a swig. His eyes stayed locked on the other man as he did, and offered the bottle back with a smile.

”Sunny is a little bit of a problem for me.” Nate gestured to himself, spreading out his jacket like his fashion sense was the issue and not his potentially explosive body chemistry. ”I’m a fan of nice though, in most situations.” Whether this was one of them or not was yet to be decided.

Arms swept up, gesturing to the world around. ”Not a lot of people running around at night.” Nate points out, letting his arms drop down as his eyes rake over the other man. ”I think I’m starting to see the appeal though.”

Saiden smirked, and let his eyes trail down the stranger’s body once again. ”Well there are other ways to work your way up.” Grinning right back, the cook winked lazily. "Just depends how hard you're willing to work for it." Subtly wasn't exactly his forte, so the words were positively scandalous.

Take the bottle back, he took another long drink. Then he lowered his hand, letting the bottle dangle between his fingers. "Well I guess the whole creature of the night thing works for some people." Taking yet another step closer, he smirked. "And what about the situations where you want something other than nice?" Eyes sparkling wickedly, he trailed the fingers of his free hand down his chest, the motion seemingly casual.

Laughing at the other man's comment, the Hali shook his head a little. "You clearly haven't been frequenting the right places, then." Taking another drink, he raised his eyebrows. "And what, exactly, are those appeals?" There was more than a hint of a challenge in Saiden's voice.

Nate’s eyes smouldered as he watched the other man take him in, his shoulders rolling back so he could pose, show off casually. ”I can be a very hard worker. With the right motivation.” His words dripped innuendo right back, Nate more than willing to dive into a willing pool. Why not?

”Only some people? I can’t say I’ve had a complaint yet.” Nate ran his tongue over the tips of his fangs, chin tipped up in a casual arrogance. His hands shifted, coming to rest at his hips as his eyes followed the finger moving down the others bare chest. ”If I want something other than nice, I go out and find it. Or, when I’m lucky, it comes to me.”

Nate shrugged, accepting the teasing gracefully. ”Maybe I just need a local guide.” His electric gaze followed the line of the strangers throat as the bottle was brought up again. The look was predatory, just like his voice as he rumbles his reply. ”I think you know exactly what the appeals are.”

Saiden smirked at the stranger's response. "We'll just have to find sufficient motivation for you, then. I'm sure something will come up." Winking, tone as suggestive as the other man's, the cook held out his hand. "I'm Saiden, by the way. I'd be a fool not to get your name when I have the chance." His tone was still flirtatious, and he looked at the stranger with a hungry gaze.

"The only thing I'm complaining about is that I haven't seen the whole picture yet." The Hali raised his eyebrows and cocked his head to one side. "And what are you on the lookout for tonight?"

Seeing the way the other man's eyes lingered on Saiden's throat, he kept his head tipped back and drank from the bottle for a little while longer. When he lowered it, there was a self-satisfied expression on his face. "Well, lucky for you I know someone." Flashing a grin, he reached out to trail a finger down the stranger's chest, tantalizingly slowly. "Oh aye, I do. But I want to hear you say it." Again, there was more than a hint of a taunt in the cook's voice.
