Johnny swaggered into a bar, casting a disdainful eye around the place. His gaze took in the cheesy-looking interior, the even cheesier-looking women, and a few men who looked like they had steroid cereal for breakfast. Rolling his eyes, he sat down and tried to ignore the nastiness of the place, ordering several shots of whiskey.

A good half hour later, he was steadily on the road to fall-down drunkenness. Watching out of the corner of his eye, he saw a big-muscled man take the seat next to him, regarding him with a sneer. The man muttered something about "fags" and Johnny whirled around, jamming his fist into his head. After about 15 minutes of yelling, confusion, broken glass and a lot of rolling about on the floor, he emerged with a bloody nose and a bruised fist. He'd thought he was triumphant till he'd been grabbed by the bouncers and forcefully tossed into the sidewalk.

Breathing in the chilly air slowly, he tried to force himself to stay calm, muttering slurred profanities to himself and getting up off his knees with shaky legs.

That was when he thought he spotted someone he knew...

Alison growled quietly as he walked past her, bristling at what she thought was an ungrateful air. She briefly contemplated leaving him on the ground, but then heaved a sigh and stepped forward.

"Let's try and make this as dignified as possible. Hand?" She reached out to take his hand, hoping he would be cooperative.

Johnny gave her a look.

"You really think I give a fuck about dignified after all that?" he snapped, taking her hand and unsteadily getting to his feet.

He slowly made his way towards the end of the alley, waiting for her there.

Alison's lips twisted into a bitter smile, and she gave him an indifferent look in return.

"Well, I didn't want you falling flat on your face. That would have been embarrassing," she added, a derisive note in her voice.

She folded her arms over her chest and walked toward him, not uttering another word as she slowed her pace and continued to walk to her hotel.

He stumbled after her, looking greatly irritated, wondering why she was being nice if she disliked him so much.

He also remained silent, looking moody and sour and still quite drunk, glowering at the people in the hotel lobby.

Alison hadn't checked to see if he was following her or not, though she could hear his foot steps behind her, especially when they entered the lobby, as the floors were tiled with some sort of imitation marble.

Coming to a stop in front of the elevator, she finally cast a look over her shoulder at him. "I'm only doing this because..." She trailed off, pressing the up button and then regarded him with an earnest expression. "I don't think you ought to be out there in your state."

He felt his expression soften at that, in spite of himself.

"...thanks, I guess."

A smile briefly appeared on her face, and then she looked away, shaking her head slightly. "It's nothing," she murmured, impatiently pressing the button again until the elevator doors opened at last.

She quickly stepped inside and tried to find her floor, though it was nearly impossible with some of the buttons scratched and marked.

He leaned against the elevator wall, groaning a bit.

"I am so sick. My idiocy never...ne'er ceases to amaze me."

She made a small, pleased noise at having finally found the button to her floor and then glanced over at him with raised brows.

"Your idiocy has a similar effect on me," she quipped with a cheeky smile. She coughed quietly and then changed the subject. "Thankfully, smoking is allowed in this hotel. But it's not like I wouldn't if it were prohibited."

He smiled slightly in return.

"Oh, good to know, you'd have been kicked out as well."

He waited till the elevator doors opened to add softly, " And yes, I know I amaze you."

He smirked a bit as he swaggered alongside her, as if totally aware where her room was.

"Have been kicked out for worse," remarked Alison with a thoughtful nod, and then suddenly turned on him with an incredulous, yet amused, stare at his second comment.

"Still thinking highly of yourself, I see," she replied with a smirk, and then added, "Even if it isn't warranted."

She raised her eyebrows and then sauntered off towards her room. She knocked on the door first, wondering if Jamie was in, and then unlocked the door when there was no answer. "'Ello?" she flipped the lightswitch and peered inside, frowning a bit at the lack of his presence.

Johnny raised his brows incredulously, bringing a hand to his chest as if wounded by her remark.

"Very warranted, thanks very much!"

He rolled his eyes and stuck his head childishly through the door, calling, "Jamieeee!"

When he received no reply, inwardly quite pleased, he moved inside and flopped down on the bed.

"He's probably out with some mates."

Alison carelessly shut the door behind her, ending up slamming it, and then frowned when she turned around to see him lying on her bed. "Hey! What do you think you're doing?"

She glared at him and hurried over, roughly seizing his arm in an attempt to tug him off. "If you're sleeping anywhere, it's on the floor."

He eyed her with a big grin.

"I'm drunk and sick and exhausted! You're not moving me off this bed!"

He scuttled over, cuddling the pillow in an uncharacteristically sweet display. "I can share, though." he said.

She scoffed at the very suggestion. "That's exactly why I won't share. You're a mess and you'll get the covers filthy!" she snapped, crawling on hands and knees toward him, and angrily snatched the pillow from his grasp.

Johnny whined at the pillow being taken away, making a face at her.
"I promise if I'm sick I'll make it to the bathroom!I just wanna sleep in the warm covers...pleeeeease Allison...don't be cruel..."

He pouted deeply.

Alison unconsciously hugged the pillow to her chest, wrinkling her nose at his pout. After a moment, she relented, if only to get him to stop whining. "Fine, but at least wash your face or something," she grumbled, flinging the pillow at him before moving to the edge of the bed to tug her boots off.

He grinned happily.

"Thankyou!!" he told her, and triumphantly made it to the bathroom... in time to be sick again.

Knowing this was not going well, he quickly hopped in the shower, scrubbing himself down and cleaning off his face before drying off and climbing back into his clothes.

Then he contentedly, and somewhat less sickly, managed to get back into bed.

"You actually took a shower?" She regarded him with a somewhat irked expression, hoping that the towels in the bathroom remained untainted as she put her boots by the door.

Muttering under her breath (something that sounded rather like "my poor fucking shower"), she continued to pick up around her hotel room, kicking some questionable laundry under the bed.

Johnny decided to ignore her, burying his face in the pillow tiredly.

"Woman..!" he groaned muffledly. "Stop making all that noise!"

Alison scowled but didn't answer him, and to spite him, started being intentionally loud, stomping about and making as much noise as possible.

Johnny yelled in frustration, throwing the pillow at her and missing by a longshot. Pillowless, he whimpered pathetically, "Er...could you give me that back please?"

Alison whirled about angrily to face him when she saw the pillow fall to the ground some distance away from her. She shot him a dirty look as she wrinkled her nose, and then quickly snatched the pillow up.

"You want this back?" She stomped over to the bed, brandishing the pillow like a weapon. "Take it!" With that, she shoved it into his face.

He couldn't help but laughing at her anger over nothing, taking the pillow and putting it back under his head.

"G'night, love." he murmured affectionately, mostly to provoke her.

She huffed loudly, bristling a little at the affectionate tone he had adopted. "Pardon?" She climbed into bed with an irritated expression, casually hitting him in the stomach as she moved to the opposite side.
