 [Have Sinbad, who was currently strolling around the center of the city.  It was busier than he'd expected, and he couldn't exactly pinpoint Meg.  He knew he should have told her where to find him - for a moment, he wished he was a better planner.  

The heat was getting to him and the irritability of not being able to spot her seemed to bother him more.  Shoving through the crowd he called out;]


Meg!

WHOOOOOOT~
[A lost puppy indeed. Sinbad hated stopping in cities unless he was going to make big money. Feel special.

He turns over with furrowed brows but half-smiles, letting his aggravation fade away.]


There you are...I couldn't............yeah.

You feel like anything in particular?
Megara: Meg | Whaddya know Wonderboy.theonewoman on April 12th, 2011 10:55 pm (UTC)
I feel like getting out of here. Way too many people.

[ And her feminine wiles told her he was uncomfortable. She pinched him by the shirt to pull him out of rush hour traffic. ]
Sinbad: chest puff.blamemeforit on April 12th, 2011 10:59 pm (UTC)
[Oh she knows him so well~

Sinbad blinks as he's led out by the collar of his shirt, at least until they're in a not-so-public area. She certainly wasn't like the women he'd been with.]


Wanna grab something to eat?
Megara: Meg | Scenery.theonewoman on April 12th, 2011 11:01 pm (UTC)
[ Nah, not really. Only the warning signs. ]

Only if you're offering.

Might wanna wait until rush hour's out of the way though.
Sinbad: hahaha im better.blamemeforit on April 12th, 2011 11:03 pm (UTC)
I'm sure we could find somewhere peaceful to eat - just keep walking until one pops up.

[He shrugs.]
Megara: Meg | minx.theonewoman on April 12th, 2011 11:07 pm (UTC)
[ She puts her hand on her hip in mock-thought. ]

I think that's the best idea you've had all evening.

[ She takes delight in poking fun at your lack of...well, liking crowds. ]

Come on.

[ Was that an alleyway? Yup. Was there a very obvious wall there? Yup. A couple of crates later, she's sitting on top of it. ]

The short way around. Less people.
Sinbad: chest puff.blamemeforit on April 12th, 2011 11:11 pm (UTC)
[He doesn't enjoy the mocking, but hey, she did agree to go out with him. That would suffice.]

I have plenty of good ideas...sometimes they just take longer to come out, that's all.

[He crosses his arms and holds his head high as he follows, watching Meg do her work. He chuckles a bit.]

Well aren't you just more clever than a pirate?
Megara: Meg | Charming.theonewoman on April 12th, 2011 11:15 pm (UTC)
[ She'd get better. Promise. ]

Hopefully we'll see one or two this evening.

[ No, not clever. She didn't think about the other side, there's nothing to land on. She's lucky this time, landing on shaky feet, but sticks the landing altogether. ]

Are you saying I'm more clever than you?
Sinbad: yeah ME.blamemeforit on April 12th, 2011 11:19 pm (UTC)
[Or else :|]

Oh I can show you plenty right now, sweetheart.

[Feeling a slight jab to his pride, Sinbad finds his own way to get up and over the wall, only he does it all so quickly he doesn't land nearly as gracefullly. In fact, if he didn't make a tumbleroll out of his clumsiness, he would have landed on his face. He gets to his feet and dusts off his clothes. HE PLANNED THAT.]

Don't get too ahead of yourself, I said you're more clever than a pirate. I'm not your typical pirate.

[He holds his arm out to her.]
Megara: Meg | lol fangirls.theonewoman on April 12th, 2011 11:22 pm (UTC)
[ Okay. She seriously tried not to chuckle, but she did anyways. Ohhhh man. Of course! ]

But still a pirate, right?

[ She'll go ahead and take that arm, hopefully, he doesn't spot that slight hesitance. ]
Sinbad: trust me im the shit.blamemeforit on April 12th, 2011 11:25 pm (UTC)
[grumblegrumblegrumble.]

That wasn't funny...

[His tone quickly lightens.]

A pirate? No, I'm the pirate. The pirate of all pirates, the best of them all. I give all terrible pirates good names, just being so good at what I do. What pirate doesn't want to be Sinbad?

[He gives a wink and starts casually strolling with her, looking around the unfamiliar area for somewhere just to sit and eat with her. His appetite was growing, and a nice candlelit dinner with Meg seemed just about impossible to refuse right night.]
Megara: Meg | The little things.theonewoman on April 12th, 2011 11:34 pm (UTC)
[ She could make a passing comment, but she doesn't, she's made enough fun of him for now. Plus, she needs her wit for later. ]

The pirate. Well, I don't know very many pirates, so I couldn't ask them personally.

[ Meg will give him credit for being cute. She's caught onto his flickering glances, and nudges over a little farther along the way. ]

Howabout over here.
Sinbadblamemeforit on April 12th, 2011 11:37 pm (UTC)
Pirates are everywhere, I bet you know a few you didn't even think were pirates.

[He looks when she nudges and smiles, though he won't admit aloud he could tell she was aware of his uncertainty.]

I'll have to take your word for it, I'm merely a traveler here.

[He does hold the door open for her.]
Megara: Meg | Work it.theonewoman on April 12th, 2011 11:44 pm (UTC)
[ She smirks, a sincere smile buried in it somewhere, thankful for his manners. A polite pirate, she might add. ]

You're probably more than right. It's not a bad place. And the owner owes me a favor of sorts...so we should be scott-free.

[ They're led to the corner of the little place, alone, away from most people in there (Given there weren't very many in the first place.) She's been here enough that she has a 'usual', so she doesn't even bother to crack the small menu. ]

Thebes is good with travelers. Sometimes.
Sinbad: c'mere.blamemeforit on April 12th, 2011 11:51 pm (UTC)
I'll admit it this time.

[He follows, taking in his surroundings as he walks behind her. He sits across and the first thing he goes for, of course, is the menu. His eyes scan it as he speaks.]

I've been here once or twice, plenty of suckers around here...


They have any seafood in this place?
Megara: Meg | You're sweet.theonewoman on April 12th, 2011 11:55 pm (UTC)
Just people looking for their bearings. Doesn't make them suckers.

[ Yes it does Meg. You're a terrible liar. ]

Yeah, but I wouldn't recommend it.

[ She takes in a scan of the familiar restaurant. Nothing new, except the pirate across from her. ]
Sinbad: what?blamemeforit on April 12th, 2011 11:57 pm (UTC)
Yeah? And I'm just a guy trying to make ends meet; doesn't make me a bad person.

[He winks, then frowns. Deeply frowns. He missed seafood, despite how much he seemed to hate it after weeks on his ship.]

Then what would you recommend?
Megara: Meg | You can't be srs.theonewoman on April 13th, 2011 12:04 am (UTC)
[ Just a girl trying to be free: totally made her a bad person, she thinks. ]

Never said it did.

Everything but the seafood. It may be local port but, you....seen our local port. Not all that pretty.

[ It's obvious she prefers salads herself, as a waitress wanders by with her usual, and sets it in front of her. She'll keep to popular decorum, and won't touch it until things are fair. ]
Sinbad: you remind me how great i am.blamemeforit on April 13th, 2011 12:08 am (UTC)
Just a side comment...

This is true....maybe I'll settle for a salad.

[He puts the menu aside and rests his chin on his propped up elbow. His gaze does shift to her salad...food.

He shakes his head and taps the fingers of his free hand to keep himself in the zone.]


So...tell me something about yourself.
Megara: Meg | Nice shootin' Rex.theonewoman on April 13th, 2011 12:12 am (UTC)
brb shower. xD
[ Everything clicks. Boat. Pirate. Why he was so insistent on dinner. She smiled, nudging her late over to him. ]

There's a lot about me to tell. You'll have to be specific.

[ She'll gracefully dodge the subject. ]
Sinbad: c'mere.blamemeforit on April 13th, 2011 12:16 am (UTC)
ok bb :3
No...it's alright, I can wait.

[He clears his throat, making sure to focus on her instead of the food.]

You're from around here I take it?

Megara: Meg | Sultrytheonewoman on April 13th, 2011 01:10 am (UTC)
You are a terrible liar.

[ She quirks an eyebrow. ]

You could say that. I hop around. Never stay in one place for too long.
Sinbad: hahaha im better.blamemeforit on April 13th, 2011 01:17 am (UTC)
Heh, you'd think after years of practice I'd be good at it, right?

[A soft laugh.]

So where is it you're from then?
Megara: Meg | Charming.theonewoman on April 14th, 2011 02:30 am (UTC)
You'd think.

[ She sips a glass of water delicately, wine was not in her taste this evening. ]

Uptown.

[ Short. Sweet. Not a complete lie. ]
Sinbad: c'mere.blamemeforit on April 14th, 2011 02:34 am (UTC)
Uptown? Well that doesn't tell me very much.

If we're going around those details...I'm from the ocean.

[He winks.]

So you've lived here your whole life then?
Megara: Meg | Whaddya know Wonderboy.theonewoman on April 14th, 2011 02:56 am (UTC)
I didn't ask where you were from, but the ocean works for now.

[ Wink was not very effective. Ally Meg used smirk! ]

Roughly. From what I can remember.
Sinbad: c'mere.blamemeforit on April 14th, 2011 02:58 am (UTC)
I figured you could use an update about me.

[It's super effective! Sinbad used peck her cheek!]

Well that's nonsense, you need to get out of here!
