"Makes sense ta me but he don' know that and honestly he may think yer tryin' ta take his dad. We been separated almost 2 years now."
When Jake asked his question about his bad selection in men Veran actually visibly swallowed. He didn't know the man enough to tell him the story of what had happened to the guy who had gotten too friendly but luckily he had other stories that he could tell. Most of the men that he dated had turned out to be jerks. They would yell at Dale, or they would try and push him to be more 'manly' and Veran would send them packing.
"Lot's a things really. Mainly they were jus' bad fer me. A couple decided that they would try and discipline him, which never turned out well for them."
He opened the door again and this time he took care of the dead thing that came out, which was lucky because another one came right behind it. Once Jake had taken care of it he looked through the windows. There were two more but they seemed to have not taken notice of the opening and closing door, either that or for some reason they just couldn't get to it. He opened the door and swept his arm out in front of him as if to say after you.

Jake heard how Veran commented about Dale., he said something how Dale might think he wanted to steal Veran of him. Jake wanted to answer that he was planning to steal him partly, but last comment he made into the direction of relationship didn’t went well, so he decided to keep it simple and answered with a simple. “Ok.” But aftert hat he heard how Veran said they got separated for 2 years.
“Wow can’t imagine how hard that must have been, feel sorry for you, but everything is good you, cause you are reunited.” Jake said with a little smile. “And you got a little extra.” He added pointing at himself.
Then Jake noticed how Veran swallowed as he asked about what happened to Dale. Did he pick another bad subject, Jake then knew he was doing it all wrong. Veran was fragile in many ways but that special fragile thing was what made him so cute, of course his face was beautiful as welln kind of the whole package. But Jake noticed he had to go slowly on him. Veran would have to tell things in his time and on his terms. But yet again the cute man commented and told some horrible stories about his assy boyfriends, but Jake kinda felt that that wasn’t everything, but like he thought earlier he would tell in time. “Well that are some horrible things to do, a cute guy like you deserve much better and a nice kid like Dale does too.” Jake said softly and winked again. He hoped that the flirting would work better again.
After Veran opened the door it was he who killed the next walker, Jake took down the one that slipped through right behind that one. Then Veran looked through the window and shortly after helt the door open for Jake. “Well how polite of you, hot and charming, you sure you don’t ride a matching white horse.” Jake said with a smile as he walked in.
Once inside he rushed towards one of the last two walkers and sliced off his head. He waited for Veran to take down the last one.
Veran was glad that Jake had backed off a little with his comments. It wasn't that he wasn't interested. Jake was easy on the eyes and he was nice to boot. He was even trying to be there for Dale and none of his previous interests, male or female, had done that and that counted for a lot in the pirates eyes. The fastest way to a parents heart would always be through their kids.
"Na, did have a boat fer a while. Me mate turned an took most of the me crew down so now I jus got me feet and yer rig," the pirate said smiling as he walked in and closed the door behind him.
Once in the walkers noticed them and he went into action, trusting that Jake would handle the other one. When he had he turned to him and smiled.
"Yer not bad for a lubber, cute, nice, and ye know how to handle a blade. Sure your not ta one with a matching white horse?"

Jake felt that he was going in the right direction now, slow and easy and he was happy, he didn’t want things between him and Veran to be awkward. Then Veran commented about not having a horse but a boat. “Aaah well a boat is nice too, the pirate thing has something sexy.” Jake said with a smile.
After that he watched how Veran killed the walker, he was already done with his one. When Veran was done he turned to Jake and gave him a lot of comments, he also asked if he wasn’t the one to come with a matching white horse. “Now that sweet pirate, is a nice comment.” Jake said with a smile. “But no, I would fall of the horse I fear, but I bet you would be there to catch me.” He said as he looked in Veran his dreamy eyes. “You know, someone could drown in those beautiful eyes.” He added as he kept looking.
Some seconds later he stopped and looked around. “So think we have some fine things here in the shop sexy, so we better start collecting.” Jake said as he started to look around.
Veran grabbed a cloth from one of the shelves and wiped his blade before returning it to it's scabbard on his belt. He started rummaging through things. It was actually still fairly well stocked which really surprised him. He was so used to seeing these types of places looted bare. He didn't think that a single person had been in here since the end of the world.
"Kraken's balls if we ain't the first ones ta come lookin fer supplies here. It's damn near fully stocked. I mean hell look at these 'ere raviolis."
He kept looking for expiration dates and shoving stuff into his bag that wasn't expired. He found a rack full of winter gloves that would come in amazingly handy.

Jake saw how Veran cleaned his sword and that was actually a good idea, so he also grabbed a piece of cloth and did the same. When it was clean he put it back in the holster on his back. Then he heard how Veran commented about how the shop was almost fully stocked.
“Yeah I think we are very lucky to have all of this.” Jake answered as he started to collect cans of soup. Then we walked over to Veran to check out the winter gloves, he looked over the man his shoulder and just didn’t touch his it with his chin.
“I want a pair of those, grab some for the others too.” Jake said. He was pretty close to him, but be backed away shortly after, not wanting to scare him again, even though it felt good being this close.
Then he found some bottles of whiskey and other liquor. “think we need those, I rarely drink, but maybe the others would like it?” Jake asked as he looked at the man. While he waited for an answer he took some canned vegetables, there were a lot of different ones, so he took them all. Then he found a rack with some deodorant, he couldn’t say the time when he actually had that. So he immediately took of his leather jacket and tank top and sprayed some all over his body, he loved the scent. Just then Veran asked was he was before the world went dark.
“I was a model.” Jake said as he walked back and forth like he was on the catwalk, he thought it was a good time to show off his body, now the he had not coat and tank top on. Then he laughed and shortly after he put it everything back on and collected every deodorant that was on the shelf. “And you, besides being a cute pirate, cause I don’t think that was your job?” Jake asked
Veran kept rummaging around. He was looking for something specific that he may or may not need, but that if he didn't have when he needed would completely ruin it. He laughed internally at the absurdity of the moment. They were out in the middle of the hell that the world had become and he was looking for an item he may never need.
"Ye never turn down good grog, might be ye noticed I'm a pirate," he said laughing.
He finally found what he was looking for. Two small bottles of lube. He quickly tucked them into his bag, making sure that Jake didn't see. He didn't want to get the man's hopes up but if they needed it he didn't want to be without it.
He looked up and moved from the section he was in to where there was some medication. Nothing fancy mostly Tylenol and others like it but every little bit would help.
"I was about to submit my dissertation to become a psychologist. And you know you look amazing doing your little catwalk. You must have made an amazing model lubber."

Jake smiled as Veran spoke about the liquor and how he might notice he was a pirate. “Oh you are a pirate? No, didn’t notice it.” Jake joked. After hat he went back and took some bottles of whiskey and some other liquor. He looked at Veran and it seemed he was searching something, Jake didn’t pay attention though as he went to grab the bottles of water, there weren’t so many left, but what was there he took.
When he was done he looked back at Veran who was at the medication.
“You found something good there, don’t search for things to make you look prettier, cause that is impossible, you already look stunning.” Jake said with a smile.
Then he hears how Veran answered he was close to being a psychologist before everything happened and he once more complimented Jake. “Well thank, you I did my best as model and I was asked a lot, but this compliment coming from you means more to me.” Jake said happy.
“You know, I think you would have made a great psychologist, I think you really have the ability to talk to people and get what they are going through, I like that about you.” Jake said as he looked around if they could grab something else. “But then again I like a lot of things about you.” He added with a smile.
Jake took one last look around. “I think we are almost done here, what I do think is we should grab some condoms, you know, if Nate or even Emre needs them, cause a pregnancy would not be good right now, don’t get me wrong I love kids, but I think we might not have everything we need for a baby.” Jake said softly. Then he noticed some comics, he walked over to them. “Does Dale like these?” he asked as he pointed at the comics.
"Wouldn't waste me time with cosmetics. Might be before this that I woulda maybe done it but now, ain't much of a point in tryin ta look perfect, sides, the messy dirty look as grown on me."
The two men had grabbed most of what was useful to them and the group. They would be pretty well set for their time waiting for Sterling and Dannie. He didn't plan on staying beyond that point but he would remain with these people long enough to make sure that they survived long enough to meet up with their people.
"Been so long since me schooling as been useful that I don't know what I am anymore. Course I know all this is jus a act I put on ta survive but at some point I think I really came ta believe it was real. With Dale here, maybe I need ta become more of the psychologist and less of the pirate, but how do I let it go. For that matter how do I parent to a kid that's been on his own so long."
Veran nodded at Jake's comment about grabbing condoms. He was right that they would definitely not be a good situation to try and bring a baby into.
"Might be making babies is something those that are able to need ta be doing. And Dale was never really big on comics before but might be now he'd welcome the reading material. The boy reads like his old man used to."
He grabbed their haul and started towards the door. He looked outside to make sure Dale wasn't watching and then turned around and kissed Jake on the cheek.
"Thanks fer tryin with me boy Jake. He's resistant but the kid needs people."
He walked back out the door and into the sun. It was a nice day, despite the snow on the ground.

Jake saw how Veran nodded as he talked about the condoms and he grabbed the comics as Veran told him that he liked to read and that he needed it. He made sure to take a lot of different ones and after that they were done. What they found was great loot.
Jake walked to the door and waited for a Veran, but just as the pirate reached him, something happened that startled him and made his day at the same time. Veran slowly kissed him on the cheek and thanking him for trying with Dale. “D-Don’t mention it.” Jake said still startled and in soft tone as he winked at Veran. Then he walked slowly behind Veran as he softly touched his cheek and smiled, not a normal smile but a very big one.
