⊹I was just trying to be cool
I could still hear her voice, the voice of my best friend telling me I needed to go out more. Of course I could understand why she was saying that, I was 21 and still never touch a single drop of alcohol, in this day and age I was considered like an alien among earth. But 21 is the legal age to drink in America right? I’m sure I wasn’t the only one, the only difference being, I had no intention of drinking any time soon. So what was I doing in a bar? I just took my first step in there, looking everywhere around. It wasn’t my first time in a bar, of course my friend already dragged me in there, but it was my first time coming alone. Why? I have no idea, curiosity maybe. I sometimes make decisions on bad impulses, but I guess I just needed to clear my thoughts, stop thinking of him. So maybe bad trendy music and some crazy drunk people was a good mix to just forget for an instant. People drink to forget so at least there was other person here that was trying to achieve the same purpose, we just had different way to deal with it. I made my way to the bar and just sit in an empty place at the counter, I could just move to a different place when I will get my glass. After waiting for a couple of minute for the barman to notice me, being too lazy to even try to make him notice, he finally came to me. And what is it going to be for you?  Just a coke please He smiled and just went his way. The barman wasn’t actually bad looking, he was even pretty nice, I’m sure he could have a different girl in his bed every night if he wanted to, and he probably wanted to. I was maybe judgy but for me there was no nice guy you could ever met in any kind of bar. We know what you are here for, don’t lie. So again, why was I here exactly? Jesus Ivy RELAX it’s not a night club, it’s actually a pretty cozy bar so stop over thinking this, you're just here to have a nice drink by yourself and people watching. And a coke for the pretty lady! I thanked him and quickly looked away to avoid any more conversation, well that’s being anti social, nice one Ivy. I stayed at my place and turn away to check the place again, was there any corner table I could get? That’s always the perfect place to have a full look at everybody without being too noticeable, I was taking the opportunity to also look at the faces around and who might look funny enough to keep watching, well so far no one too interesting seemed to be around, bummer.

Alfie let you tour night off, and this night would be your night. Even though, you decided to go to the Hendrix to see how it is as a client. It wasn't a bad decision, on the contrary, your colleague or your boss could serve you a drink. You thought it was a good idea. So, without hesitation, you walked the street of Bowen to grab a drink at the Hendrix.
When you arrives there, ou find some familiar client. You discussed with them, you laughed with them too. It was a pleasure to be there as a customer than a barman but you also like your job here. So, you go at the counter, you asked your colleague for a glass a rhum with ice. You let a tip to your friend and you start drinking your glass. When you surrounded the bar, you saw a little ginger head who seemed to be a little bit lost in this place. So, you decided to come over see her. You take a sit on her right with your glass, and started to talk.

Just a coke in this wonderful place ? Take a cocktail ! You’ll see, there are marvelous, told you to this pretty lady. I’m sorry if I disturb you, my name is Alek, you continued with a smile.

Talking to girls when you worked but also when you were here just for a drink and have a good night was your passion. You hope you don’t scare her with your aise to talk to people.

⊹I was just trying to be cool
As I keep looking something finally caught my eye, a guy, with a drink in his hand, looking like he didn’t belong here, did I looked the same? He looked so out of place it was actually kinda cute, but he wasn’t actually cute so you can already stop your thought on that. Just a coke in this wonderful place ? Take a cocktail ! You’ll see, there are marvelous, I jumped on my sit What? Yeah I always have the best reaction, I did clearly heard what he said, it just pop out of my mouth out of surprise. I turned my head to see who was talking to me and looked at him in the yes with confusion. Was there actually non alcoholic cocktail? Well, probably but was it what he was suggesting or couldn’t he imagine someone not drinking? Well it’s actually not a bad idea As I said that I started to look around to see if there was some sort of menu I could find, there was something on the wall but couldn’t really figure out what it was saying If they have something without alcohol I started to squint my eyes, trying to figure out words on the wall. Anyway, I’m sticking to my coke for now I smiled and actually took my first sip. I wasn’t actually a big coke drinker, I usually stick to water and tea, I was really boring with my beverage, but hey, at least it was healthy. I’m sorry if I disturb you, my name is Alek Oh no don’t worry I don’t mind at least not for now I’m Ivy! I offered him a big smile, I was the kind of person to always smile, I couldn’t help it, I just always wanted to make the person I’m talking to happy. And as much as I was a loner I actually love company, meeting someone new, as long as it wasn’t in a group so for now his company was appreciated. I just hoped he wasn’t about to turn out to be douchey So you come here often? There wasn’t any more cliché sentence than this one, but I was referring to him acknowledging that the drink here was good, I just reacted like 5min later.

You were sitting there, in the place you used to work in, as a customer for the first time. When you surrounded the place, you thought that Alfie made a really good job in this bar. It's really the atmosphere you like in place like this : cosy, lounge and rock-n-roll. When you looked at the customers, you'll find a little ginger head who seemed to be lost with her glass of coke. So, with all you charms, you come to see her and begin to talk to her. You take a sip of your rhum and you talk to her about the wonderful cocktails we can found here. When she told you it was a good idea to take one of them, a big smile shows up on your face.

Without alcohol ? Yes, of course, I could even do it for you ! you said with your big smile. Nice to meet you, Ivy.

Without delay, you were in front of her in the barman place. You take the opportunity of saying hello to your colleague and offer a big smile to the young and pretty lady in front of you. With ll the juice and sirup you can have here, you began to make the greatest cocktail you could do for her. She asked you if you come here often, and after that, you laugh a little.

Hmmm... Too much often... I work here, so all days and all nights ! But I never see you around, or am I wrong ? Hmmm, impossible, I would have noticed a pretty girl like you, you said with a wink at her.

⊹I was just trying to be cool
Without alcohol? Yes, of course, I could even do it for you ! Nice to meet you, Ivy. And in a second he is behind the bar touching every bottle he can find. Wait what? I start looking around me to see if someone else watch him and all I could found is the other barman looking at him jokingly with a smile. So does he not care if a customer just go over the counter and mess up with the bottles? I was just about to say something to him when the truth finally came out of his mouth Hmmm... Too much often... I work here, so all days and all nights! I raised an eyebrow, so he is this type of person? You don't look too much like a Barman. And by that I was thinking he didn't look like the type of guy to hit on every girl, but he actually came pretty easily on me so I guess I was bad at judging people. He definitely looked more innocent than he probably is. But I never see you around, or am I wrong ? Hmmm, impossible, I would have noticed a pretty girl like you I laughed inside, yup definitively got that one wrong. I take another sip of coke and smile at him Yeah it's not my favorite type of place to hang out I look at him for a minute, I watch him making a cocktail, no matter how much I don't like alcohol, barman and all that fun stuff, I always love watching someone so focus and passionate on what he was doing, it was always relaxing me and he actually seemed to love what he was doing. I mean is it really fun to come here every night? Watch people getting drunk and not even being able to walk? Or watch guys being overconfident and hit on girls? I frown just by the thought of that, but that was what this type of place was all about, flirting, get wasted and have a nice one night stand. and girls wearing almost nothing, actually you must love that I mean which guy here would say he doesn't like it, decent guy aren't around. I know I was too judging with people partying but I couldn't help it I felt like they were all the same. So I was there, with my coke, sitting in a place where I was judging every one around me, and where everyone were probably judging me for being so stuck up. I look down at my drink and start playing with the straw, mixing the ice, I was definitively not in my element.

You were there, behind the bar, making a cocktail for the lady you just met. When you tell her you were barman here, she seemed to be surprised. But ou don't even know why. You mixed juice and syrup and shake all of them to do this cocktail for her. Finishing it with a smile, you choose a glass and put your mix in it and give it to the ginger head.

Why you think that ? You're the first to tell me, you said surprisedly. And a cocktail without alcohol for the pretty Ivy!

Your colleague laughed a bit when you give it to her, and you just slap him on the shoulder. You were always like this with girls you meet. She said that's not the place she used to hang out. When she tells that, you don't feel surprised at all, you understand by the way she was in the bar. Looking after everyone, analyzing every customer. She continued but you weren't agree with her. You take your glass of rhum to take a sip.

Hmm, no. It's not like that every night. I love my job in the way that I love see people partying, having fun, hang out with their friends, it's what I like. And no, I'm not the kind of man who liked to see girls wearing nothing, vulgar and without discussion, you said to her. I prefer girls who are looking for just having fun with a drink, or eventually, who came by because they want to enjoy the music, you smiled.

You were now, in front of her, your elbows on the bar, waiting for an answer from her.

⊹I was just trying to be cool
A lot of people were starting to gather around and speak loudly between them, I turned my head and the place was actually getting busy, lots of people with a drink in their hand, enjoying their night. Why you think that ? You're the first to tell me Was I really the first one? He didn't look like the stereotypical type of guy to be doing that but then again I almost never step a foot in this kind of place, who am I to judge. I don't know you look too ... Innocent, I guess I'm wrong I keep looking at him, he does have a baby innocent face, there was probably more behind it than I could imagine. And a cocktail without alcohol for the pretty Ivy! his friend laughs at him and I do the same, at least I'm not the only one to think it was cheesy to speak like that. I take the cocktail and  grab my purse Thanks, how much do I own you ? It was actually a pretty good technique for a barman, pretend to be chatting and then boom, here's you drink, now pay.
I looked at my cocktail for a couple of seconds and pull it closer to me so I can reach the straw and take a sip of it. I'm not going to lie, It's better than my coke but let's be real cocktail are always better than coke,
maybe it's because I'm not a coke lover but stupidly enought I always go for the easy common stuff when I go out. I take another sip and let it sit in my mouth to appreciate it. I owe it to you mister Alek, It's a pretty good cocktail, 10 out of 10 would recommend I said playfully. He took the effort to make me a good cocktail I couldn't not be grateful about it, he was at least good at his job.
He start talking about how he loves his job and how he sees it differently than me. Obviously he deny liking seing girls almost naked. I just take another sip of my drink and answer tiredly I guess... And that kids, is exactly how I am, I can have a lot to say but as soon as someone doesn't agree with me on something I just don't have the energy to fight and speak out my mind, I always think it's pointless. I mean we will just both keep speaking from our point of view and don't care about what the other have to say, like I said pointless. We just have different way of seeing things I end up turning my seat and looking at everyone having fun in their own way I'm pretty boring to be around, you should go have fun, that's why you came here

Your colleagues and friends laughed when you give her cocktail to Ivy. As a response, you slap them on the shoulder. This was your way to answer to it. She said that you look innocent, and then they laughed again. But so do you. A lot of people think you're only eighteen or even sixteen, you don't know if you have to take this as a compliment or not.

According to you, how old am I ? you asked to the pretty ginger head.

People were dancing, chatting, laughing. That's what you really like in your job, see people having fun and make them having fun. When she tasted your cocktail, she found good, better than her first drink. So, you were proud of you. One of your creation liked by someone, it's something for a barman. You smiled at her and take a sip of your drink.

Nothing, it's for me, don't worry, you said with your smile. Thanks, I appreciate ! I'll put it on the card and I'll call it the Ivy cocktail, you laughed a bit after that.

You were always like that with girls. It's in your nature after all, well that's what your friends said about you. But you really don't care. She was cute, and friendly so you don't care. But you might scared her if you continue to drink as usual so you take your time with our drink. She said that you can go with other people because she seemed to be boring. But you wasn't agree with that.

Oh no, I like talking to you. And you're not boring at all, no one is boring you know. I refuse to let you say that ! I'm actually having fun, talking to a pretty girl and making cocktail for her, you said with a wink. So, you know what I'm doing in my life. Now your turn, you said with a smile.

⊹I was just trying to be cool
He laughs when I say he looks innocent, I guess he must get that a lot, like I said he does have a pretty baby face. But does he laugh because he is far from innocent? I mean, it could be right, you never know. According to you, how old am I? I start to inspect his face a little bit closer, I sit perfectly still in front of him and approach my head a little as I tilt my head from right to left and squint my eyes, I feel like I squint my eyes a lot, I should stop before I get early wrinkles. Well I would've easily said eighteen but since you're asking I guess it's more than that I stop a second to look at him even more Maybe something like twenty-one? Could he really be my age? Some people really look so young, I need their secret.

I put my bag down and thank him with a smile when he says the drink is on him, well then, maybe I should be friendly with barman more often, it could be useful for the one time a year I go into a bar. Thanks, I appreciate ! I'll put it on the card and I'll call it the Ivy cocktail I laughed with him. An amazing name if you ask me! I'll be the first one to tell everyone in the town about it just to brag a bit. I keep laughing and take another sip, if I continue like that my poor drink is going to be done soon. I take a look at Alek's drink and make a disgusted face How can you drink something like that? For me there was really nothing good with alcohol, and worse just pure like his was. Was he drinking to forget something or just have "fun" like he would say?

He was trying to be sweet, saying I wasn't boring. I smile at him, of course he had to say that. So why did you come here Alek? I replied looking at his drink. He was obviously trying to have some fun, maybe with a girl, was he thinking he had a chance with me? After all he never hide his interest but I just figured he was cheesy with everyone like that, it was a barman thing. So, you know what I'm doing in my life. Now your turn I had a huge smile on my face just thinking of it I work at a shelter This is the kind of job you had to love to do it, not that it was difficult but it wasn't making the best money in the world, so you're here more for the dogs than the money. If you ever wanted a dog, they're all sweet and adorable

Laughing with your age, something you like to do. She told you that you might be eighteen or maybe twenty-one. And that's the age people give to you, but twenty-one is the age of your little sister that's why you have a little smile on your face. You look maybe young but you don't care, it's fun sometimes even if sometimes it's unbearable.

Hmmm, wrooong ! I'm older than that, I'm twenty-three ! Unbelievable, right ? you said, laughing.

You offer her the drink you prepare, she was happy, you see it with her smile. And to add, you tell her you're going to call this the Ivy cocktail, she find that funny. Also, she said she promotes it around the town. Even if it's a joke, you think that was great. She asks you how you can drink something like your glass of rhum with ice. Something you like a lot !

I don't know, the taste maybe. Even if it's alcohol, all of them have a different taste, you responded to her. Maybe it's becoming an habit, so now, I drink everything every time...  

You finished your drink, and take an other one. The same. Here, in this bar, you're like home so you take another spiced rhum, less than the first one with a cube of ice. You didn't want to scare her with your alcohol problem, when you drink your seem to be another person and you don't want to that happen tonight.

I'm coming to have a good moment, and I'm having it right now ! you tell to the ginger lady. A shelter ? Oh nice ! I'll think about it if I want to take a dog, you said with a laugh. Have you always live in Bowen, or in Australia ? you continue to ask to better know her.

⊹I was just trying to be cool
I look at him with pure surprise when he says he is actually twenty-three, how is that even possible? But you have such a baby face! I answered while laughing I mean no offence, how is life looking like a teen? I add just to annoy him a little bit more. And to think that I'm actually the baby one here, it still amaze me. He must get comment about his age every day. I keep looking at him, maybe I could see some maturity in there, but it was really hard to distinguish.

I take more sip of my drink and actually finish it, well it was a good drink. To answer my question he says he probably like the taste of alcohol, and that is something that I can't understand, but we all have different taste after all, I guess. Maybe it's becoming an habit, so now, I drink everything every time... I don't really know how to react, and kinda want to know more, I'm always interested in understanding someone mind. Would you drink pure medicinal alcohol? I'm sure not right? I understand there's different taste but alcohol on its own is disgusting. And nowaday there was so much drink which taste exactly the same but without the alcohol that there was no reason to drink alcohol, beside wanted the after effect. I feel like the only reason anyone wants to drink alcohol is to forget about life for an instant. And I could understand that, it just wasn't what I would do. Stuff happened and I never ever wanted to just take a drink and forget, I just always prefered to deal with it, no matter how much it can hurt.

As people around us were stating to have more fun we were just starting to know each other a little bit more, and he was actually pretty nice to talk to, I may have judge him wrong in the beginning.Have you always live in Bowen, or in Australia ? Born and raised here in Bowen! What about you? I smile at him and notice people around me looking at Alek like they're waiting for something. Probably not the best idea to just stay behind the bar. Do you want to move? I mean I'm sure you didn't come here to be the barman again. As I say that I start looking around if there's a nice place without too much noise and people, but I'm not too sure.

She doesn't believe you when you tell her you were twenty-three, with your innocent face of a baby. You laugh when she asked you how is it to live with a innocent face like you have.

Not so complicated after all, even if people think I'm a baby still a school, you added with a smile.

Ivy actually finish her drink and you were happy she liked it. With all your barman's skills you made it for her but it wasn't so complicated after all. She talk to you about your drinks, your alcohol inside your glass. You take a sip, and continue to listen to her. She was right, you drink to forget something, or maybe it's in your gene to drink like that. Like father, like son, right ?

I drink to forget, I guess, you responded and raise your shoulders. Forget life, forget problems, forget everything and have a good time. Maybe it's for that, you continue with a sad voice.

All drinks reminds you your father. But you only drink the same thing, usually, rhum. Your father was a terrible alcoholic who drinks everything. A lot, every day, without a glass of water. You're not at this point yet, and you won't be, you hoped. Finish to talk about alcohol, you wanted to know her so asked her questions about her life. She's really pretty and you wanted to know her better.

Oh nice ! From London, with greek origins from my mother that's why my full name is Alekzander, you told her. Oh yes, come on, follow me.

You grab her hand and walk her outside of the bar, there was a little terrace. There was a quiet place, at the end of the garden, with a bench. You sit together here and continue talking.

You don't want to see other thing than here ? I mean, travelling, discovering other countries and so on ? you asked her politely.

⊹I was just trying to be cool
I was still trying to figure Alek out, that was totally my thing to always overthink. Maybe there wasn't more to him than just a typical guy drinking every night, having "too much fun" like some would say. But the more I was talking to him and the more sweet he really seemed to be, and I was becoming more and more curious about his story. He took my hand to bring me outside, as soon as we step a foot outside I took a deep breath, enjoying the calm around me and the smell of fresh air. Air doesn't have any smell but at least it wasn't smelling like alcohol or smoke like some people were smelling inside. I was feeling way more comfortable in this atmosphere and could finally relax a little. He went up to a little bench and I sat next to him, in a lotus position toward him. I looked at him and wonder if he still had is drink, I wasn't sure (Aveugle la Ivy)

Before going out he was talking about his drinking, and he somehow prove me right, people always drink to forget. He wasn't quite sure about it thought, It's like he wasn't even sure why he needed to drink, maybe it became an habit? Isn't it harder to go back to reality? I was geniuly asking that because I had no idea about the answer and then I realized that maybe I was being too heavy-handed, I feel like I was his mum giving him an interrogatory Sorry to annoy you with that, you don't have to answer And with this sentence it was his cue to just stop the conversation about it if there was more that he didn't want to talk about. He just met me after all, I started being curious about alcohol and now I was trying to obtain personal information because I was too curious.

Maybe it's because we were outside but I was feeling so much lighter, like something heavy was removed from my shoulder, isn't it crazy that just a place can do this to someone? It was just a bar, not the end of the world, but it was just not my place and I was feeling more at ease to speak with Alek out there. I knew I could hear a British accent in there! When did you get here? How are you liking Bowen? I sometimes wish I could be new here just to know how it feel to be there without knowing every corner, looking at my city with new eyes. I love Bowen but a lot of it was starting to get boring to me, I've been there my whole life, I'm sure anyone would feel like this. He asked me if I ever wanted to travel and it hit me harder than I thought it would, or than I wanted. I always think I was tough until I have to think of him and how much it hurt to not have him close by I humm.. It took me a second to collect my thought before I took a deep breath and smile at him, like nothing ever happened I just never took the time to think about it or even to save money, and I have my brother here I could never leave I couldn't even imagine moving out to a city close by and leave him here, specially recently. I mean if it was just for a holiday there would be so much interesting places. How was it moving to a completely different country?

Finally, you were together outside on this bench to continue your discussion you had inside. She was so sweet and it was so easy to talk to her than you continue, you gave personals details that you never thought you told to someone. So, you continue to talk, to say how hard was you life, at least you tried without giving more informations. You didn't want to scare her with all the problems you could have in your life.

It's the hardest part, but I don't mind, I just think that with it I could have forgotten my past, my problems, you said a bit quietly.

It's hard for you to talk about your father, your hell when you were in London without your mother. Even if people could see your scars on your body and ask you about it, it was always difficult. Talking about Alana was easier, because she's the sweetest of the Canterburry family. And you love to say that you're a proud brother.

I came here 3 years ago now, and yes I still have my British accent but girls say that it's one of the sexiest, you laughed. I enjoy the city, and mostly, the people here ! It's another atmosphere than London, but I think Bowen is great and I want to stay here the most I can.

After all that, you asked her why she's still here. Yes, live in your own city all your life is amazing but sometimes you may want to discover other things, others cultures. And that's why, also, you live London. She told you she have a brother in here, so she wouldn't let him alone. You could understand because one of the reasons you didn't want to leave England was your little sister.

I understand, leaving my little sister was the hardest part of my travel, but now she's with me after 3 years without seeing her, you said with a smile. It's difficult, you have to find a job, your own home. The first month was the hardest but also the greatest because I met people, I tried jobs, and so on. It's a magical experiment to live.

⊹I was just trying to be cool
Right now I wish I could have superpowers and read people mind, or see people past. Alex was giving me some information but obviously he was still keeping the most important part for himself, at least it was nice of him to help me in my experiment of "hey how is life being a drinker?". I was wondering if he was drinking that much, cause I feel like it was kinda what he was insinuating, I hope if it was the case someone was here to look after him. But you don't too hard Ivy too hard No matter how hard you want to forget it's always going to live with you Yup, that definitively wasn't as hard as what I said before. I couldn't say I had the most difficult life, it was even perfect for a while, so I couldn't relate to people having real problem. Did he even had real problem? I was so confused and still full of questions I'm sorry if you don't want to hear it, but it's always going to be a part of you, no matter what you want to forget Keep going Ivy, keep rubbing it in his face, wow I was such a positive person. I then add playfully to release tension At least I hope it's not about a girl says the girl who can't forget the guy she loved in highschool. I just met this guy but I was already on a mission of making understand alcohol is bad. For sure next minute he is going to thank me for curing him from his demon.

I had to admire the courage it took him to go to a new country, it's not something anyone could do. For me the problem would always be my family, I mean my brother, I couldn't dare to image moving without him, maybe I could move with him. I don't know it was such a weird thought to have, I couldn't imagine being in a new city, no matter how much Bowen could be boring sometimes.Can't deny, British accent is so charming And I hope he doesn't take it the wrong way thinking I was somehow hitting on him as much as I was starting to like his compagnie. Talk to me about London, how is it? Are people super sophistical or rock bottom of the society with bad hygiene like American would say? Can you make me a tea? I laugh at my last question, yes sometimes I think I'm hilarious. Well if right here, right now he just happened to take a set of tea out of his jacket I would be more than impress.

Was I allowed to tell him he was a bad brother for leaving his sister? I think it wasn't socially acceptable, even as a joke. That's weird cause I would never be mad at my brother for leaving but would hate me if I was the one doing it, I always cared more about other people feeling than mine. It must be so exciting to see her after so long! Is she staying or visiting? I understand, it's part of an adventure, you have to create a whole new life I guess that's the reason why most people just run away from their problem by moving, hoping of a new better life.
