Title: Dipping a toe in
Kit Spencer - May 22, 2012 03:49 AM (GMT)
smoothed out her skirt and straightened her hat a bit, as she slowly sipped the white wine out of the glass in front of her. She liked this place.... a lot. It had a definite atmosphere that had been lacking in Boston.
After her coffee with Wes, she had met someone named Pierce, but Kit wasn't sure how she felt about the whole thing. It still took some getting used to, being open with people, when she was so used to being on her own. One of the big burdens placed on Kit was lifted when Wes contacted her about moving in with him. He was familiar and she felt a sense of relief about that, and the fact that they lived well together didn't hurt either. She would be moving in this weekend, not that she had much to move at all, just what she had with her in Boston, and what she had picked up en route to the city.
A job was still an issue, but Kit wasn't too worried, the goal of tonight's foray was to enjoy the show. She gave Kurt and Blaine a small wave from where she sat, and to meet some people. Familiarity with the city, and the people you lived with, was a very good thing.
Quinn Fabray - May 24, 2012 10:22 AM (GMT)
Quinn was a bit late in arriving, showing up fashionably late since she had been hesitant to come in the first place. She knew that Kurt wasn't comfortable with her, at all, and it seemed like a bad idea to show up at the concert he was putting on.
At the same time, as one of the head officials of the city, it would also look good for her to go. Plus, Santana had invited her so..
Upon entering Lackadaisy she spotted Santana rather quickly, making her way through the crowd towards where her friend was sitting, glancing up at the stage as Blaine and Rory were singing. She couldn't help but smile just a bit, still able to appreciate good music when she heard it, even with all the damage to who she was.
She was almost to her destination when a red head sitting alone caught her eye and she paused for a moment, debating with herself before drifting over to where the young woman was.
"Sitting alone for something like this is a bit lonely," she mused, pausing next to Kit, offering the other a faint grin, reaching up to tuck her hair behind her ear. "Why not come sit with my friend--" The blonde motioned over to Santana. "--and I, hm?" Quinn didn't wait for an answer, touching Kit's shoulder briefly before heading over to Santana. "Sorry I'm late."
Kit Spencer - May 24, 2012 01:35 PM (GMT)
Kit wasn't expecting anyone to talk to her. She was content to spend the evening alone. She was used to actually.
It didn't mean that she liked it, however.
She smiled pleasantly at the blonde. She was just about to ask a question when the blonde hurried off. She bit her lip and made a decision in the moment. She slid out of the booth, grabbing her glass of wine, as she followed the blonde to another table, as she could hear strains of her favorite song playing in the background.
She caught up to the blonde, touching her arm lightly. "Are you sure you don't mind?"
Santana Lopez - May 24, 2012 04:56 PM (GMT)
Santana sat at the table, her eyes on the stage, her expression a mix of confusion as the music continued before she simply rolled her eyes. She turned her head to see someone approaching the table and smiled up at Quinn and the redhead who was following after a couple steps behind.
"Praise to Fabray that you're here," Santana said, "cause there's no way I'm sitting through the rest of this by myself." She laughed a little and motioned to the empty seats for them to take.
"Hey, I'm Santana" she introduced herself to Kit with a small wave.
Quinn Fabray - May 25, 2012 01:44 AM (GMT)
"Jealous that no one would come to hear you sing, Santana?" Quinn drawled, a bit playful and a bit of a jab, still not quite adjusted to the other's demeanor like she had been once upon a time. There was a slight curve to her lips, an almost smirk before she focused her attention on Kit.
The smirk melted into a faint smile and Quinn waved her hand a bit.
"I don't mind at all. No one should sit alone," she mused, motioning for Kit to take a seat before she herself took one beside Santana. "So if you really aren't enjoying yourself why stay?"
Kit Spencer - May 25, 2012 03:14 AM (GMT)
Kit smiled at Santana. "It's nice to meet you Santana, I'm Kit," She said, sitting where Quinn indicated. She gave Quinn a grateful look. "Thanks, Wes keeps saying I need to get out and meet people, so I'm grateful."
She fell silent as the girls bantered. She didn't really know the girls well enough to get involved in whatever discussion they were having. "Do you both sing?" She asked, taking a sip of her wine.
"Yes they do actually," Erin replied to the other redhead, before turning her attention to Santana. "You should enjoy the music my dear," She said, reaching out to tuck her hair behind her ear. She glanced at Quinn and smiled. "It's good to see you again Quinn. I hope you've been well?" She asked, her eyes falling on Kit.
"And you are new," She said. "I'm Erin. Can I get you lovely ladies anything?"
Santana Lopez - May 25, 2012 04:16 AM (GMT)
Santana raised a brow at Quinn's remark, and what exactly had she done to get that? "Well, this certainly isn't the concert I thought it was going to be," She said with with a tilt of her head and an emphasis on the words, "My memories of the Klaine duo, when they sang together before I had to go to Cinnci, had always been more of a...festive, thing." And this was just kind of disappointing to her memories. Although the Irish kid was really good.
"I stayed because I thought you'd be coming," Santana shrugged to Quinn. And because she didn't mind watching Erin work, looking at her long legs as she walked.
"I haven't sung in over five months," She admitted, holding up her hand and wiggling her fingers, "except for church," She had been taking care of her grandmother then, and then there was MayDay and the camp. "Although I bet that's still more than Quinn here, and that's what matters." She teased as she smiled at Quinn.
Leaning back in her chair she looked up at Erin, "Alright, I'll try. Would you mind getting me a...I don't know, a cherry something?"
Quinn Fabray - May 25, 2012 01:49 PM (GMT)
"Well this is a bit more festive than how things have been lately. They're trying to bring back some of the normalcy we've all been missing so that's better than nothing I suppose," Quinn said thoughtfully, eyes on the stage for a moment as she watched the boys. She smiled faintly as Blaine and Rory finished, applauding as everyone else started to, glancing at Kit though when the red head spoke up.
The blonde was about to reply but Santana spoke first, a snort escaping Quinn as her eyes narrowed playfully.
"Yes, you probably have been singing more than me, I'll give you that," she drawled a bit before turning her nose up just a bit. "I have no doubts that I can still sing better than you though."
Quinn looked up at Erin and smiled faintly in greeting, motioning to Kit.
"This is Kit. We actually just met her ourselves," she explained before resting her arms on the table. "Something cherry sounds good actually. Surprise me."
Kit Spencer - May 25, 2012 09:03 PM (GMT)
Erin winked. "Something cherry, got it," She repeated, looking at Kit. "Nice to meet you Kit," She said with a bright, friendly smile. "Welcome to the city," She paused to clap for the boys before she left to get the drinks.
Kit looked after the girl. "She seems friendly," She said. "Is she part of the welcoming committee or something?" She asked, taking a sip of her drink, while she looked around.
"I wish I could sing sometimes," She said, adding a little bit to the conversation. "I listen to Wes when he thinks that I'm not paying attention, but I can't really carry a tune though," Kit explained. "I can do other things though."
She looked at the girls seated with her. "How do you both know Kurt and Blaine?"
Erin returned setting the drinks in front of the two girls. "I hope these are to your liking?"
Santana Lopez - May 25, 2012 10:34 PM (GMT)
"Your little alto voice doesn't mean a thing if you don't use it," Santana remarked with a little fake attitude and a side snap of her fingers. She didn't hold it for long before she was smiling again. "I do miss us singing together though."
"She's just always kinda great," She said in response to Kit, "if you ever want to meet someone, find a job, or have someone to talk to. You can go to her, she has the connections." She looked to the side, as if noticing Quinn there again and realizing she was capable of everything as well that she just listed.
"She's also nice," She added in a tease.
"School, glee club, well, Kurt anyway," Santana said and left the rest of the explanation to Quinn as Erin returned with the drinks. "Thanks," she said with a smile as hers was set before her. "When do you get off, are you going to join us after?"
