TIGHTEN UP - open
« on: July 26, 2020, 07:36:54 AM »
she’s begun having an intense bout of cabin fever, unable to do any substances to numb herself and forget everything going on. a usual coping mechanism for joey. she would, if she wasn’t scared of being chewed out by anyone who sees for possibly hurting the parasite in her, especially now with it being so obvious by a quick glance. she just wants to go back to normal; she can’t even have any fun, who the fuck would be interested? and, she’s practically lost both of her boy toys, so she could be entirely back to square one after the baby comes. joey hopes not, she feels so powerless because of it all. she’s terrified, but she hasn’t told anyone and would probably never admit it; except maybe to her mom. fuck, she really misses her mom..

maybe, just maybe, she can find some distraction down in the village. she’s spent minimal time there, still feeling uneasy knowing a body is just beyond the tree line. the spot stops her for a moment, she’s staring, wondering when it’ll be found... a hard swallow and head shake, joey forces herself on, glancing around to see if anyone has even taken notice. with a clearing of her throat, she returns to holding her head high and that air about her that has a hint of her thinking she’s better than most. she sets her sights onto the bar, maybe someone in there would give her some attention, even if she can’t drink; honestly, one of the first things on her list after pushing this thing out of her body.

she pulls the door open and scans the patrons, lips pursed just a tad. she lets out an almost frustrated breath and wonders over to the bar, slipping into the second to last seat, resting her elbows on top of it and her chin on top of that. her lip protrudes in a pout as she looks longingly at the stock of alcohol.

fred enjoyed the bar. more than anything, the place was his pride and joy. if someone was looking around for him, it seemed that the bar would be the first place to look. and, as much as he enjoyed growing up with his time spent sitting at the bar, drinking and partying, he equally enjoyed being on the other side just as much. everyone loved the bartender, right? that was what fred told himself as he served drinks to the usual patrons, eyes eventually finding joey sitting among the other bar-goers.

fred couldn’t resist stepping over, observing the way she eyed the amazing stock of alcohol. “you always want what you can’t have, huh?” wasn’t that the truth. placing his hands on the bar, he huffed a short breath before he mused, “after you have that kid, i’ll drag you back here and we’ll have a real party, yeah?”

if anything it was one of the few times in his life freddie found himself feeling a tad awkward - a little awkward, but that was still saying something when it came to frederick. nothing prepared him for the latest turn of events - nothing prepared him to know that joey had will’s baby. it was a hard thing for fred to try and process, especially when it seemed that will was so distant about it himself. he liked josephine, he adored his brother even when he was reluctant to blatantly admit it. over all, fred simply decided it was best to try and act as if he was unaware of the situation as it was. sometimes he preferred not knowing.

Eddie would be a hypocrite if he were to express disappointment in William ever getting Joey pregnant in the first place. Two parents who were clearly not ready to start a family - if they could even call the mess they made the beginning of a new family. Perhaps it was what Joey hoped for - a family. William certainly wouldn’t be one to stick around long enough for that; he was far too insensitive and cruel to ever take into consideration anyone else’s feelings but his own. Even if Joey did want a family - which seemed unlikely - she would never find one with a man like William. He would certainly die alone and, in Eddie’s opinion, for good reason.

Sat in the corner of the bar, mindlessly taking a sip of his drink, eyes followed the heavily pregnant Joey as she walked to the bar. He could never be a hypocrite in being angry with William for ever being so irresponsible - he too had done the same to Blake, but took things too far and left her with a broken heart. Maybe Joey was lucky that William was so clearly disinterested; it made for less heartbreak in the end. She deserved to be happy, so Eddie would make sure she was protected for as long as the Stirling family was around.

❝ So, what do you think? A boy or girl? ❞ Eddie questioned quietly, taking a sip of his drink as soft eyes darted over Joey’s features. Any attempt to join in on a conversation was an absolute miracle for a man like Eddie.
