Hex had been out with his mate Mark. They'd been to the gym to work out and then had gone for dinner. Hex had his favorite falafel place and Mark went along because of the two of them, Hex knew where to find the best food. They were out a bit later than either of them had meant to be and when Mark's mobile went off they looked at one another and laughed.

"The missus?" Hex asked.

"Yeah," Mark replied. "I'd better go. You want a ride home, mate?"

"Nah, that's alright. I've tied you up long enough. Go home, I'll take the tube."

Mark smiled at him and they parted ways. Hex decided to indulge in a little baklava before he started off for the underground stop.

He was passing a bar when a woman rushed out. She looked up and down the street, her mobile pressed to her ear.

"...having a heart attack, i think. The medics are on their way but I don't know what to do. We're at Jazzmin..."

He heard that and though he hadn't been into a bar in quite some time but he didn't hesitate to hurry inside. There was a man on the floor and the bartender was with him doing CPR. Hex rushed forward to help out, letting the woman know he was a nurse and he set about taking over compressions. Soon enough the medics arrived and he stepped back out of the way. By the time it was all over his heart was pounding and adrenaline rushed through his system.

"Come on, hero, I'll set you up with a drink," the bartender said, smiling at him. "On the house."

"Just a Diet Coke, yeah?" he said as he followed her to the bar.

A medical emergency at the bar was enough to make Kersen well and freak out, considering that his first thought was vampire-related medical emergency. Just last month some moron had nearly drained a guy in the bathroom and Kersen had had to carry him down to his basement apartment and call in someone to hook him up to a fluid IV for the rest of the night.

Luckily, this time it appeared to be entirely mundane. It was still early-ish in the evening, which meant that there were more humans and less vampires in the bar, and it really had just been a heart attack.

Still, it was enough to make him rush over to the bar from where he'd been doing a little bit of shopping not far away in Soho (because being a vampire meant you HAD to do your shopping at night, even if you should also be working). When he got there, Tabitha was getting a diet coke for a cute guy who'd just sat down.

"Kersen," she said pleasantly, "Check out our hero here. He's the guy I mentioned on the phone."

Kersen looked at the guy and smiled sincerely. Since he hadn't even gotten to the club yet he was a bit subdued as far as his appearance went - well, subdued for him. He was wearing a pair of tight black trousers and a black and white graphic designer tshirt that with sleeves short enough to show most of his tattoos. His only makeup was eyeliner and just a hint of gloss on his lips. He also had a number of earrings in one ear.

"My hero," he said, and held out his hand. "I'm Kersen Sommeveld. This is my bar."

The touch of nervousness plus the fact that he was drinking coke (Tabitha clearly having offered him something) told Kersen that he shouldn't offer the man a drink.

"Well I'm glad you were there," Kersen said. He asked Tabitha for a coke for himself as well, and she arched a brow at him but got one anyway. "My understanding is that he's going to be just fine."

Out of drag, Kersen tended to be a little less... swishy. Though only a little.

The truth was, Kersen actually had a registered nurse on staff to take blood donations, but she was off tonight. He thought it best not to mention that, since he couldn't think of a particularly good reason a bar would employ a nurse.

So instead he just laughed and said, "Right. I mean, this is a piano bar, we're not that big on excitement. I hope this didn't put a damper on your evening."

"I promise I'll make sure that you can still make your way home," Kersen said with another smile, and perhaps a flirting glint in his eye despite the fact that the other man was human. Sigh.

"Though if I can't get you a drink, maybe I can play something for you." He wiggled his fingers. "Any requests? What kind of music do you like?"

"I know who they are," Kersen said with a laugh. "Though you're right, I don't think they'd translate very well to piano. Okay then." He slid off of the bar stool. "I'll just pick something I like. But." He put a hand lightly, briefly, on Hex's arm. "Just for you."

He walked off to the piano, taking over for one song, and played something he'd written himself, years and years ago. It started out somewhat sad, picked up in pace to nearly joyful, and then ended almost sultry.

"Thank you," Kersen said sincerely, and then added, "And while I'm here allow me one more moment of self indulgence." And he pulled down the microphone and played 'Night and Day', singing this time. God he loved Cole Porter.

"That's nice of you to say," Kersen said kindly as he got up again, handing the piano back over to the pianist working tonight.

He thought vaguely that it was kind of nice to be here at the bar and yet for a moment being neither a drag queen nor a vampire. He felt just like... a normal guy.

"Oh, a few years now," said Kersen. The actual answer was over a decade, but he knew full well that he didn't look old enough for that to be the case. "What do you think?"

Kersen had already thought it might be something like that, so he didn't look surprised. "And clearly doing well," he said with a little smile. "Well. If I can't get you a drink then, could I buy you a coffee? There's a 24-hour cafe across the street, I admit I'm a regular." In other words, no need to stay in a bar, but I want to keep talking to you.

Kersen laughed. "Not putting me out at all. In fact, look at my head bartender here - " Tabitha was a few stools down behind the bar, but she must have heard them talking about leaving because she was smiling and waving a hand dismissively at Kersen.

"She thinks I don't get out enough," he said. "What she's thinking right now is, it's about time the boss leaves with a cute guy."

Kersen blinked at him. "Hey, sorry, honey," he said. "I didn't mean to make you uncomfortable. Just an objective eye, yes?" He'd guessed that the man was gay, but maybe he was wrong.

That answer made Kersen smile. "Well that's a shame. I won't embarrass you further, but suffice it to say I don't mind leaving with you on my arm, hmm? In a figurative sense, of course." He really shouldn't flirt with humans, really shouldn't. But the man was just so good looking, and the way he didn't seem to know it was awfully endearing.

"Apparently they have very good pie," Kersen said. Or so he'd heard. Sometimes the whole not eating thing was a real drag.

He slid off of his chair and chuckled when Tabitha gave him a thumbs up. "Let's go then. It's just across the street."
