Demon Marcus, Monday

Alluka had woken up with the strangest feeling that it was someone's birthday today. She'd spent a good, long time consulting with her toys about which day all of them were born and while some were close to today's date, none of them had it from what they could tell.

It was all deeply confusing.

Still, not knowing whose birthday it was didn't mean she couldn't have a party. So Alluka had more toys than normal with her, a cake layered with strawberries and whipped cream and topped with chocolate shavings, tea and cookies, and it took her some time but eventually she got the store open (rather late) with a birthday banner up and balloons everywhere.

It didn't matter whose day it was! She was celebrating it anyway!

Demon Marcus is Open!

Ringo usually showed up near the very end of Alluka's shift. Mostly because she couldn't help pointing out all the reasons it would probably be fine to close early so that they could get to the AirTrek part of the day earlier, and even Ringo felt a little guilty when she did that too early in the day.

But today she was feeling a bit restless, and, also, it was hot out, so ducking into Demon Marcus early to see her friend would be just fine!

Of course, that meant she was pausing in the doorway and blinking in surprise. "I didn't know it was your birthday," Ringo said, sounding a bit apologetic. She hadn't even gotten a present!

"It's not?"

Ringo blinked.

"Oh."

Then she looked around.

"Whose is it, then?"
soniaroadsqueen: (having a blast)

"Oh!" Ringo grinned suddenly at that.

"Totally makes sense." She looked around again, still grinning. "Did whoever it is show up? Or are we still waiting on them?"

"Well, it would be rude to refuse cake," Ringo allowed with a smirk.

You know, in a way that eating birthday cake without the birthday person wasn't.

"Did you make it yourself?"

Ringo considered the cake, then laughed. "How come there's not more chocolate involved, anyway?" she asked.

"Healthy?" Ringo eyed the cake, suddenly suspicious. "There's not, like, vegetables in there, are there?"
soniaroadsqueen: (summer ice cream)

"So what part's healthy?" Ringo asked with a slight frown of confusion.

Not that said confusion was going to stop her from taking that plate, finding a fork, and scooping out a big bit of cake to stuff in her mouth.

"Mmmmmmm!" Cake!

Ringo paused, stabbing her fork into one of said strawberries and holding it up for inspection. "Hmm. Well, fruit is supposed to be healthy," she agreed thoughtfully.

She turned back to Alluka, shooting the girl a huge grin. "I like the way you think."

"Well," Ringo giggled, "with you, nothing is chocolate." She grinned and flicked a little bit of chocolate shaving from the top of her slice at the other girl.
soniaroadsqueen: (soft)

"Your brother likes chocolate more than you?" Ringo stared teasingly at Alluka. "I'm not sure that's even possible."

"So I guess it's a good thing he's not here, then, huh? There's barely enough chocolate for you, so if someone likes it even more." Ringo shook her head, with a grin.

Ringo frowned slightly. "Though, you've got a bunch of brothers, right?" She didn't really remember more than that there was more than one, to be honest. "Which one is it that likes chocolate?"

"You know you can get up to trouble without causing trouble, right?" Ringo grinned. "It's fun!"
