"Where the fuck did you get that?!"
Jackpot, I don't give them time to respond. Hands snatch up the near-empty beer and in one clean sweep it's at my lips. Beer's always tasted like shit and this one is no different, lukewarm and mostly foam, but I'll take what I can get in this place. Four days of searching and I've come to the conclusion keep it on lock down. Bet half of Twelve's mentors have taken most of it - I don't blame them, but it doesn't hurt to share.
It hits my stomach in one, two, three glugs, a wince and a sigh and the bottom is slammed back onto the table. "Thanks", a curt nod to those still left in the hall.It'll get me through until dinner, where they fill my glass with sparkly stuff that feels like champagne and helps me sleep. She's no whiskey bottle but it'll have to do. It has to.
Tipping the bottle over with my index finger, I wipe my mouth with the back of my hand and grin. "Have fun kids," a wink and a spin for good measure, around and around and around.
I'm gone long before the bottle stops spinning and the game begins.
