"He's prettier than me," Billy had decided on first glance when he saw Rupert at the Black Cat. He didn't like it one bit.
"Careful, envy does nothing for you, Billy." Newt looked at Rupert then Billy. "Be nice."
Rupert came over to order a juice.
"What's the matter with you? Haven't you got the balls for a real drink?" Billy remarked so snidely.
"Juice does the body good." Newt just smiled at him and introduced himself. "And that's my better half, Billy." Newt motioned.
"I've come for Ste." Rupert nodded.
"I see. That's nice of you." Newt nodded.
"Shopping." Rupert was serious.
"What is it your looking for?" Billy asked as he handed him his juice.
"Knickers for starters." Rupert sighed as he took his juice to enjoy. "Then a good fitting bra might do, as well."
"Sounds so naughty." Billy laughed.
"Purely, professional." Rupert looked at him sternly.
"Here, that, Billy?" Newt looked at him. "Purely, professional."
"Right." Billy went back to work behind the bar.
"You must love what you do." Newt smiled.
"Well, yes, I love women." He informed him.
Newt bit a laugh before it got away. He so wanted to take Rupert seriously, but it wasn't easy. He just hoped Ste behaved himself.
