Winter 25|Outfit|Aofie| Evening|Flurries|

Sadie never really liked Yule. A lot of it was her full extended family getting together, which was always a disaster in her books. It was the sMe thing every year. They all sat around, talked about Yule if the past and their feelings, Her Abuelita would break out the coquito and after a few cups Her Tia Carla would be telling her Tia Anna about stripes making her look fat, and it would break out into a fight that Sadie didn't feel like being around to break up this year.

So she had walked down to one of the older bridges in the city, a jug of coquito stolen from home and Tiny at her heels. Being out this late may have been dangerous, if she didn't know self defense and if Tiny wasn't a massive furball who could bite down with enough force to really do damage to someone's arm or worse, if you were unlucky enough to turn the wrong way.

Sitting down underneath the bridge, she listened to the sound of the cars above, far and few between tonight as most people were home with their families. It wasn't like Sadie had any special reason she didn't want to be with hers, she just didn't feel like it. She took a swig of the rum mixture straight from the jug, sighing as she crossed her combat boots over one another and digging her free hand into Tiny's fur. "Happy Yule, Mi amor."

Ender Basco

Tanuki


He had two options.

Option one: Sit home alone. Drink until you can't stand. Scream at the wall as if it is every woman, every man, every person that has ever wronged you. Crawl to bed. Stare at the ceiling overthinking every slightly upsetting situation you've ever encountered. Let is destroy you. Cry. Lay in fetal position. Drunk dial all the friends with benefits. Get angry when they have plans. Cry.

Ooooooor.

Option two: Put on pants. Pet Nylah and tell her you'll be back. Go to liquor store. Buy yourself some gift for Yuletide. When the cashier says 'Happy Yule!', tell him to fuck himself. Drink a little. Fall down. Get up. Stumble to bridge. Stare longingly at the water below. Get jealous of fish, because even fish have friends. Drink some more. Wobble underneath bridge with an arm full of alcohol and lots of feelings.

Guess which one he picked.

Ender squinted at the sight before him. "Harps?" He held himself steady, his skin pressing into the concrete structure so hard that the imprints were raw. "Whaterrr yooh doin?" Cautiously he teetered over. With a thump he fell at her side. "Thirrsstyy?", he slurred with a coquettish grin.

Sadie hadn't been there all that long. She was just enjoying the peace and the serenity of a city that was at peace for once. As a cop, she dealt with many minor and serious issues in the city, but Yule was never that bad. That was what made her confident she could get drunk and then walk into work the next day with a pleasantly unpleasant Yule hang over.

Harps. Harps was only a name she ever heard down at the station, only by the chief and few others. At first, she wasn't sure of slurred words, but the immense scent of alcohol pierced her sense of smell as he plopped down beside her. "Aye, Ender you're going to kill someone smelling like that." she said as she shook her head fir a moment.

Tiny was more than happy to see Ender, getting up and rounding Sadie to nudge his side with his head, whining softly as the smell hit his nose as well. He asked if she was thirsty. "Si, but not for that swill, mi amor." She said as she took another swig out of the jug before holding it out for Ender to take. "Try this instead." she insisted, looking out at bright city lights. "This what you do on every day off chief, or are you just drunk off your ass for the spirit of the holiday?"

The other cop shook her head at him. Ender noticed, but was already too full of liquid courage to care. He simply smiled. At his state of intoxication, everything was funny, hilarious even. This was first stage of drunk Ender. Level one, laugh at everything. Level 2 was not as much fun though, and level three meant falling asleep wherever he may be at that exact moment. It made for some good stories the next day, that was, if someone was around to relay them to him. From what he'd gotten to know, drunk Ender wasn't a bad guy. Maybe a little ballsy, and sometimes over dramatic, but overall decent. It could be worse, he could have been an angry drunk like his father.

When Tiny came over to him, he chuckled. The cop ruffled the dogs neck and leaned into his plush fur. "That'sa good boooy-ah?" he cooed with a slight hiccup.

The other officer declined his liquor, but held up a bottle of her own. "Try this instead." She didn't have to tell him twice. He accepted, guzzling down a large gulp for himself before returning it. The flavor made his nose crinkle. What was that, cinnamon? Some sort of holiday, fancy-pants spice. He cleared his throat. "...what in tarnation...", he whispered to himself in confusion.

"This what you do on every day off chief, or are you just drunk off your ass for the spirit of the holiday?" Ender laughed, his head thrown back as each cackle sounded off into the otherwise silent night. It echoed off the bridge, which just made him laugh harder. Sadie was extra funny today. "Yaaahp. It's a Yuletide miracle..." he stated, in a string of barely legible slurs.

Ender stood suddenly. He balanced himself on one of the pillars with one hand and waved a bottle with the other. He looked down at Sadie and smiled mischievously. After that, he looked out towards the city. In his best low, jolly voice, he bellowed "HO! HO! HO! HO, to all you fuckers!" He chuckled again, but his time it made him cough a little. He cleared his throat, but continued to stand. His brown eyes studied the lights in the distance. From here, they looked like holiday lights. Every now and then a car would pass overhead and he would look up squinting. Other than that and his smart ass out here screaming, there was nothing but silence.

It was really hard to tell exactly how much booze that her boss had before getting here, but what she was even more curious about is why her drunk chief would have chosen the bridge to hang out under. Maybe he was actually delirious, maybe he had read one too many children’s books and decided that he was destined to be the troll that lived under the bridge, Sadie didn’t know. But what she did know was there was no point in looking a gift horse in the mouth, or as her grandmother would say, ‘A caballo regalado no se le mira el diente’. She decided it was best just to let him sit beside her and try some of her holiday drink.

Though he didn’t seem to get the appeal and Sadie snatched the jug back from him, taking another swig of it for herself. “Well, aren’t you just full of that holiday cheer mi amigo.” She mentioned, taking another swift drink as he stood up to shout to a city full of people who likely didn’t give a shit about anything he was on about, especially not when he was drunk. Sadie however laughed. “Ender, you are más doblado que conejo de mago.She stated as she reached up to take his hand, dragging him back down into the spot next to her. “I honestly would have laughed if you got an answer to that.” She mentioned with a chuckle.

“You should have brought Nylah out you know? If not to keep your drunk ass from falling into a pit then at least to play with Tiny, you know he loves her.” Nylah was indeed Tiny’s little friend, and the large police dog became a puppy around her too, not being able to resist a good game of chase.

“Well, aren’t you just full of that holiday cheer mi amigo.” Ender gave her the thumbs up, or at least tried to. He ended up looking at his own hand in confusion. It wouldn't quite do the thing.

“Ender, you are más doblado que conejo de mago. Sadie dragged him back down to reality. He fell kind of hard on his bottom, but wasn't phased at all by the impact. "Did you just, call me a mango?" He leaned close to her, his eyes squinting at her features. She was so pretty, even with this blurred filter he was seeing through. Sadie said something about his dog, but that's really all he gathered. He was already too focused on other things to understand what she was on about. "I like your face." A uncoordinated hand cupped her cheek. He used his other arm to hold himself up as he studied her. "Warm.", the cop said matter-of-factly in reference to the temperate of her face against his palm.

Dios Mío...”Sadie muttered under her breath as Ender exclaimed at her previous statement. She wondered how you were supposed to explain a Spanish saying to someone as shit-faced as Ender was right now when she couldn’t even explain it to a sober person. At this rate she was going have to take him home, and not for reasons someone may expect her to. No, she was a little more worried about the Police Chief doing something stupid.

”Yes. I called you a mango. I can also call you an idiot in both languages if you’d like,mi amor.” The tone was sweet and controlled even though her words weren’t.

She held a blank expression as he examined her face, lips pursed into a thin line as he took her face in one hand. He smelled thick of alcohol, even more so than Sadie herself.

”I like yours when you don’t smell like a shag-rug from a drug lord’s apartment, mihito.” She answered, though Ender didn’t seem to be paying attention to her, still processing what she said about 20 minutes ago, perhaps. She felt Tiny plop down next to her as Ender continued to study her. ”I’m alive, that’s wonderful. What am I supposed to do with that information, Chief?” she asked, arching an eyebrow slightly.

He stared back at Sadie dreamily. His smile was soft and thoughtful, but his eyes were glassy and somewhere far away. ”I like yours when you don’t smell like a shag-rug from a drug lord’s apartment, mihito.” he took his hand away from her cheek to grab something at his side, only to return a second later brandishing his spirit of the evening. The brown bag crinkled even against his shoddy grip, his body swayed slightly now that he wasn't holding himself up. He grumbled something along the lines of 'thank you', but it was a bit hard to decipher with the bottle he'd just plugged between his teeth. He swallowed audibly before turning his attention back to her. Ender hiccuped, wiped his lips with the back of his hand and then on his jeans. That was something he'd never do sober. He really cared about his clothes, and also his overall appearance. But now, he looked rough, his hair was a mess and his face was a bit scruffier than usual.

”I’m alive, that’s wonderful. What am I supposed to do with that information, Chief?” Ender clanked the bottle down between them and nodded to himself. "Alive.", he repeated in a lazy, breathy slur. "I'm glad you're alive. Nothing makes me feel that way.", he confessed in a flat tone. It seemed to be a bit of a random comment, but he wasn't quite done yet. "Not anymore. Not... a thing." He was shaking his head now, slowly. Anything faster would have only nauseated him further. When he looked back at her his brown eyes read defeat where there was usually unfaltering confidence. "That was stupid, sorry. Shouldn't have said that..." He turned his eyes down towards the river passing swiftly beneath them. There were so many times he wished he could be like water. Formless, unpredictable, free. And there were so many times he was. He was hard to hold onto for one. Like liquid that slipped through your fingers. He'd managed to trickle out of many grasps lately. Sometimes he even felt like he was losing a hold of himself. Losing himself.

Also, water was mostly unpredictable. It did what it pleased. But nobody blamed it for acting like that. When water turned into a storm, or into a tidal wave nobody berated it for the damage it caused. Instead people looked at the antecedent. What made the water do that, was it too warm lately? Was there something different we could have done to prevent this? He couldn't help some of the damage he'd caused. Hurt people, hurt people after all. He knew that he couldn't protect his heart by acting like he didn't have one, but he didn't know what else to do at times. This time he was drowning, and only had himself to point fingers at. Human error was usually the culprit for hurricanes and floods.

Ender lifted the bottle again, but this time it didn't make it to it's intended destination. The smell of it made him retch. He spilled his guts into the water below, this time passing out before he was able to wipe it anywhere.

-ZOOOOOOOOOOM-

"Thank's Officer Haper, I really appreciate you giving me a call." Wes was crouched by the sofa dabbing a warm rag lovingly at his cousin's forehead. When he turned back to Sadie he smiled gratefully. "Hmm" He inquired, looking back towards the couch. "He's been doing this a lot. But I'm surprised he made it all the way to the bridge." Truth be told, Wes had been checking on him a lot lately. He'd noticed Ender was off and began to find excuses to come over to make sure he was aright. When Ender wasn't home, sometimes Wes even went to the local bar to see if he could spot him. He didn't drink, but there had been a few occasions he'd gotten a water and waited to see if his relative would show up so he could derail a night of chaos.

Wes put his hand on Sadie's shoulder when he passed by her to head into the kitchen. He began pouring all the bottles Ender had drug in with him down the drain. "Oh, I forgot to ask, none of these are yours, right?" Wes looked at her sweetly, a bottle chugging heavily in each hand as it emptied into the sink. "Don't worry, he will just think he drank these. He wont know I got rid of them." Something about his mannerisms were so bizarre. Like he'd been playing this part in Ender's life for a while. To start, he hadn't been fazed by her phone call. When she rang he'd gotten up as if it was his duty, almost as if he saw it coming. The only shock in his voice had been when she mentioned their location. Usually Ender passed out at home, so it hear how far he'd trekked in that state of mind was a little jarring.

She didn't know what was wrong with Ender, anymore than what was usually wrong with him anyway. He held her face there for a while, and he looked dazed. "Miho, what has gotten into-" but she didn't get a chance to finish her sentence as Ender suddenly got...deep? Sadie stared at him for a minute, trying to decide what to say. "Uh...Whoa, Chief, I..." Sadie knew how to deal with people going deep. But being deep was something else entirely.

She couldn't exactly say anything. What did you say to that? Did she pat his back? Or slowly step away while she had the chance? Now that she looked at him, Ender seemed pretty beat up, now she really got a look at him under the moon. He didn't look okay, eyes glazed though he seemed to become aware of what he was saying. Sadie's expression went from shocked to soft for a moment before she sighed softly. "Que Paso Chief? I didn't hear you say anything." She said, standing up and pulling the rest of whatever he was holding out of his hands, tossing it aside and placing a hand on his back.

"Just relax Chief. You're fine." Well, that last part was a lie. But she could afford a lie right now. Soft moments didn't last forever, especially when it came to the two cops, and she watched as he proceeded to puke over the Bridge's edge. She rubbed his back, waiting till he had gotten it all out before she even let him into her car.

---

Once back at the station, she made a call to Wesley, who was to her surprise there promptly, almost like he was expecting it. She followed him back to Ender's condo, Tiny in tow, but the K-9 stood outside the door as they brought Ender home. Sadie didn't say anything as Wesley spoke to her, instead watching the loving movements as he treated his drunk cousin on the couch. But she frowned. "Miho, I don't know how he got to the bridge but he was trashed." She wondered how many times Wesley had been forced to do this, and how many times Ender had found himself piss wasted.

As he passed her, she shook her head. "No amor, none of them are mine." She assured him. Perhaps it was time for her to leave, and so she went into the kitchen where Wes was disposing of the vile substances Ender had been drinking all night and stopped him, hugging him closely. "Get some rest, mi querido. You can't take care of anyone if you're not taking care of yourself." She said, ruffling his hair before she made her way back into her other room, stopping to kneel in front of the couch and gently run her fingers through Ender's hair. "La Navidad feliz, Mi amor, no se rinde aún." She whispered before standing up and taking her leave so Wesley could tend to his cousin in peace.
