It's a big night for Fry when Guppy comes to collect Gene from the bar.

"And if you need a smoke, you'll have to do it before we go in." Guppy is telling Gene as they come out into his living room. "Fran's just picking up her sister to babysit, she'll be back in a minute."

Fry's dressed in a new police costume, as he's now too big for his old one, which Coral is currently sporting.

"Babysitter?" she wails. "I want to see!"

"You saw him in the play this afternoon." Guppy says firmly. "We're going to be out past your bedtime, Brooke's too. Auntie Tanya and Megan will come to play instead."

Coral has now spotted Gene, and runs up to glomp his legs. Fry just glances at him and smiles, contented that he came.

Gene pulls half a smile, and nods at Fry, and then absentmindedly picks up Coral and holds her at eye level.

'Trying to impede an officer? Prison for you, lass.'

Or bed. That too.

'Maybe. But you'll have t'ask your mam. Night, luv.'

He sets her down, and tries not to outright laugh at her rhyme. The littlest one gets patted cautiously on the head - ones he can't hold some kind of conversation with are weird - and a tut at the car.

'Could at least get a model Ford if you're gonna drive all over me,' he tells her.

Not that he holds out much hope for her dad providing anything decent in the way of motors.

Gene raises his eyebrows on seeing Tanya, and looks sidelong at Guppy. But he just nods back at the two of them, sticks his hands in his pockets and says, 'hiya, sweet'eart,' to Fran.

'Aye, lets go.'

Before someone asks exactly how he could be related to Guppy. And he'd be forced to retort that he'd disown any family member that was such a girl anyway.

After they've walked out of the room, it doesn't stop him muttering, 'kept quiet about that one, didn't you?' at him, because really, a bloke should let a mate know if tasty birds are going to show up at random.

That's alright. He doesn't have to know her for long. He winks and clicks his tongue in acknowledgement, and then turns his attention to the car.

Hmm.

Well. Better.

'Can I drive?' he asks, more in hope than expectation.

'Blimey.'

He adjusts the modern-day black shirt Bar forced on him - along with some jeans that sit far too low for his liking - and sighs.

'Not you, then. I've seen you drive before.'

Fran can only be an improvement.

'Want me to tell her to sod off?'

He doesn't mind. He's heard the stories and anyway, it's not like he lives here.

Gene sticks his hands in his pockets again, and frowns. He's great with old women usually, but he doesn't want to bother trying with this one. And he won't say anything if he's not asked to - or unless she gets properly out of order - because a man has to manage his own family.

He does nod at the old fella though. He doesn't look so bad.

Gene's eyes flick sideways at him, because really!?

'Yeah,' he says, suddenly aware of being white, and tall, and blond in a way he never has before.

'My side got the looks, obviously. An' the charm, an' the brains an' the driving ability.'

He directs his gaze at the woman.

'Who're you again?'

He had to stop for a fag, obviously. And he eyes the seats dubiously when gets inside; they always pack these places, and his legs don't agree with being squashed in. He says nothing though, just gives the grandmother a stare before sitting down, and once he's comfortable, pulls a hipflask from the modern-day jacket he was given to wear.

'That's better.'

He offers it to Guppy absent-mindedly, and adds,

'So. Recently divorced? What's up with her fella?'

Gene snorts a laugh at that, putting thoughts of the bird on the backburner for now. They'll keep.

'Got a practical head on his shoulders, gotta give 'im that.'

He takes another swig of Scotch, then tucks the thing back in his pocket. He wants another fag already, and the lad's nan's got a face like a smacked arse. He's trying to ignore her for the sake of Fran, but he's not very good at keeping a lid on his temper.

To make an effort, he grabs some Xtra Strong Mints out of his pocket, and chomps down on one loudly. Much like a small child, he gets bored when he has to sit still for periods of time.

'What's time's it start?

Gene's eyebrows raise at the sight of the woman, and go higher when she starts talking. He understands next to nothing of what she says.

'She speakin' English?' he mutters to Fran, and hooks the hipflask out again.

This is a Police Drama. It obviously needs booze, or what's the point?

'Got projectors?' he mutters back, but then the curtains open to reveal the kids, and he grins. Ah, a kid with a bogey. Some things never change.

'Blimey. Didn' know he had pipes on him.'

Date: 2014-03-06 10:46 pm (UTC)
the_gene_genie: (LoM - Hmm)
From: [personal profile] the_gene_genie
Uh oh. Looks like things are about to go off.

'Bet its an inside job,' he mutters, because Gene's never been the type to be able to sit silently and just watch.
