There was good news to be had the next morning, (actually it was noon when Mother woke up coherently again. He didn't even notice the RV having been put onto a riser. At least not until he opened the door...) un what little there was... The various frontframe mods built to kept the sensor array upright had kept the engine from becoming seriously damaged, there was only a little damage to the radiator and that would only take a week to get proper parts for.

The repair shop had even been kind enough to lend the two a loaner car to roam about the area with for a bit.

At least that's what Mother thought.

Laini's money bought a wide variety of things that made everything alright.

And with a clean get away car...it was only right Mother take Laini somewhere enjoyable and metropolitan.

That meant only one place.

"Salt lake City in 6 miles, Laini..."

Or rather, there is no price too high to pay to salve Laini's conscious and balance out her mistake-

Not that she'll ever admit to any mistake. At least after she fixes it.


Metropolitan is good! Metropolitan means bars where people willingly sing kareoke, and where Laini can finally buy silly blue drinks with umbrellas in them.

However, even in Underhill she's heard stories about Salt Lake City. She turns from watching the landscape go by, to look over at Mother.

"... And they'll have bars there? Like, real bars?"

From: [identity profile] yucca-isnt-porn.livejournal.com
"Yes, Laini, they'll have real bars. At least one crappy oriental place, one decent one, and one bar where there will be frilly cocktails served."

In his mind, and judging from Laini's general manner, she is not a person who goes for beer and straight whiskey as a preference.

"We'll want to exit here..." Nice easy drift into the righthand exit lane.. "We'll avoid a lot of hassle with the traffic downtown this way."

Laini raises an eyebrow, and quirks a grin at Mother.

"Seems to me you know rather a lot about Salt Lake City- specially since Wiki and Google aren't up to their usual selves in this time. So I'm rather guessing you've been here before?"

She waves a hand in the air, and looks back out the window.

"At least on a barhopping trip or two?"

"I went to college here." Mother replies placidly, eyes completely on the road and pedestrians.

From: [identity profile] foxy-l33t.livejournal.com
Blink, blink- and she's turned back to study Mother.

"You went to college here."

Laini blinks again, then reaches over to pat Mother's shoulder. "I'd say you have my sympathies, but I think I should first ask who I should be sorry for- you or the state of Utah." She grins, then settles back in her seat.

"Though that might explain how you know where the bars are."

From: [identity profile] yucca-isnt-porn.livejournal.com
"Actually, on the whole, I was fairly nice to the State of Utah."

Pause.

"It was the dean of Utah Valley University that I had some issues with."

From: [identity profile] foxy-l33t.livejournal.com
"... Now you've got me all curious about what may have happened. Any chance I can see this Alma Mater of yours? Before or after drinks, your choice."

Laini waves a hand in the air.

"I'll even let you pick the disguises, if we run into this Dean guy."

From: [identity profile] yucca-isnt-porn.livejournal.com
There's a very considerate look in Mother's eyes as he debates the before or after drinks.

"I'd say after drinks, we take the drinking after, no telling the kind of trouble we'll cause."

From: [identity profile] foxy-l33t.livejournal.com
Laini nods sagely, and settles back in her seat.

"So we can always use a temporary insanity plea. Gotcha."

From: [identity profile] yucca-isnt-porn.livejournal.com
"Right, and it'll just make the cops think we're members of the student population who got into too much in one night." Mother replies. "Okay, I gotta pit stop, you want anything from the 7/11?"

From: [identity profile] foxy-l33t.livejournal.com
"Any sort of six pack of the caffinated variety." She waves a hand in the air. "As I left most of my stash in the Winnebago, alack and alas."

Though she's going to be a bit more careful with how much caffeine she gives Mother- certainly not enough to get him to the same stage of sleep deprivation he was the other night. That's a bit of 'Temporary Insanity' she can do well without, thank you.

"They don't stock jolt, I'll see what they have in the generic colas." Mother nods, considering how little he remembers of the other night, he's not in any hurry to repeat what little he does remember.

Once he pulls over the car, he glances at Laini. "You know how to fill a gas tank?"

Date: 2009-11-11 06:57 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] foxy-l33t.livejournal.com
...

Laini was just about ready to tell Mother 'Of Course!'-

But was then hit with the mental image of the gas station blowing up.


"... How 'bout I tell you what I know about it, and you can tell me if I actually know how to fill up a gas tank before you let me do so? Because I sorta think I do, but..."

You know what, Mother's just going to stand and wait to hear this. Because he's getting the impression there will be a LOT of learning experiences with this car.

From: [identity profile] foxy-l33t.livejournal.com
Laini has actually watched Mother drive, and do various other RV-related things! (It was just the Cruise Control that threw her off. Really.) So her step-by-step description of filling up a gas tank isn't too far off, if a little biased towards an RV and not a normal car.

She even knows that gasoline is flammable, and thus, sources of ignition should be kept far, far, FAR away from it.*

So it is more than likely safe enough for Mother to leave Laini supervising the filling up of the tank while he hits the 7-11 convenience store.

*And on that point, Mother should be glad there are Perfectly Normal Human witnesses all about the gas station, otherwise there would have been an amusing prank involving (cold) Fox Fire and a puddle of gasoline. Alas.

From: [identity profile] yucca-isnt-porn.livejournal.com
...Mother is extremely glad of appreciative of Laini's honesty and helpfulness, including the lack of prankflaming. Thus he's leaving Laini at the car to pump the gas and going inside himself to buy food, drinks, and pay for fuel.

It's when he comes back out that things are just a teensy bit odd. Not that the cashier noticed the Guy leaving with more than he came in there with. 'More' in this case being a medium box of electronic components, tools, and a bottle of bright pink liquor underneath all that, along with the 7-11 fares of goods and snacks.

"Hey Laini? Random freaking door."

Date: 2009-11-18 04:58 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] foxy-l33t.livejournal.com
Laini has been watching the pump trying to recall how exactly to tell when its done pumping-

But now that Mother is back, he can figure it out! As soon as Laini parses his statement-

"Ah. To a certain bar we both love and adore? Pick up anything interesting?"

Date: 2009-11-30 12:41 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] yucca-isnt-porn.livejournal.com
"Is there any other kind of random door? Answering your latter question depends on if you define Bar's random choice of a bottle of alcohol for you as 'interesting'. Mother replies, putting the box into the back seat. "I did get some stuff to see what repairs could get done to the front sensor array."

So, once the stuff with the radiator gets fixed, they can fix the hard-made mods.

"We might just be able to get drunk on the good stuff without having to show our face in a bar in town.."

From: [identity profile] foxy-l33t.livejournal.com
Hmmm. That means the possibilities of karaoke are slim-

But that means more time checking out the University that had to deal with Mother.

Laini ponders the pros and cons, then shrugs and smiles disarmingly.

"Hey, more time to check out where you got some interesting permanant marks on your record, right?"

Besides, Bar always has the best booze.

Date: 2009-12-10 02:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] yucca-isnt-porn.livejournal.com
"We can always hit the bars a little after, maybe even tomorrow, after I teach you the basics of a car." Laini may be getting something of a small look at that before he starts up the car and pulls out of the lot.

It's not a long drive, but there's this to be said for driving downtown. There are FAR too many one-way streets around the campus, which is driven past a couple of times before Mother finds a good parking garage some 6 blocks away.

From: [identity profile] foxy-l33t.livejournal.com
Apparently if you crash one car, you are thus branded for life. A roll of her eyes answers Mother's small look as they drive away.

Though by the time Mother finds a parking spot, Laini is more than ready to brave the wilds and dangers of a college campus. For once, she's actually dressed with some degree of normalacy, in jeans and a t-shirt (http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/womens/b3e7/). And since odds are high of running into geeks who would actually realize her laptop is several years advanced, most of her bright and shiney tech is hidden in a messenger bag.

It won't be fore life silly kitsune, just until you can pass a traffic safety laws and basic use of a car test.

"...Okay, I haven't been to the campus in a good thirteen years. The Faculty might not recognize me..." And there's that impending 'but I don't want to take any chances', hanging in the air as he reaches back for that pink bottle of booze to crack it open and mix it with his slushie.

"...what've you got for disguises?"

Date: 2009-12-12 06:48 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] foxy-l33t.livejournal.com
Laini snorts, and rolls her eyes cheerfully as she cracks open a can of soda. "'What have I got for disguises?' What haven't I got, silly human?" She winks at Mother.

"Illusions- or fancy holograms. Take your pick as to how you want to define it. So..." Laini taps a finger on the side of the can before setting it in the cup holder, and eyes Mother speculatively.




Then she simply grins, and holds up a mirror for Mother to look at. (Said mirror will cease to exist when no longer needed.)

"How does that work for you?"

Date: 2009-12-12 06:53 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] yucca-isnt-porn.livejournal.com
There are no words.








Just that high squeaky-voiced noise and the sort of manic grin no one would ever want to see on a face like that.

"...is it too late to take back that thing about not wanting to marry you?"

He jests! Truly!

Date: 2009-12-12 07:10 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] foxy-l33t.livejournal.com
"Just a little too late." Laini snickers, and banishes the mirror. "Sorry."

She settles back in her seat, and grabs the can of soda. "And I can pretty much maintain that indefinitely, as long as I don't have to work or concentrate on anything else too involved."

And speaking of concentrating, Laini takes a hearty chug of soda. "Now then- I think I'm ready to take on your alma mater..." She gives Mother a sideways look and grin.
