As Char introduced Alfie to Rowan, he gave the other man a quick onceover. He looked like a chill dude and he seemed to value good times so Alfie tipped his head and gave a charming smile. "Nice to meet you, man. Good party that we have going here." He nodded along to the music and listened as Rowan talked in a calming drawl, casting a quick glance at Charlotte a few times to make sure she was okay with being sandwiched almost somewhat awkwardly between the two of them. Alfie only spoke again when he was accepting the beer that Rowan went to fetch.
"Thanks man, I had an obviously bad day of work. You read my mind, buddy." He chuckled and knuckled Rowan on the shoulder playfully before he took a small sip of the beer and winced, only slightly. He didn't exactly like the metallic taste of beer, he preferred a more refined wine instead but hey, this was a party and beer still had alcohol in it. Man, tonight he was going to go crazy, he needed it. Alfie waved a hand as Rowan said his goodbyes and jumped onto the stage to dance. That dude sure looked like a chill guy, he'd have to get to know him better.
Alfie looked over the rooftop and breathed out. Whatever it was with parties and beautiful woman (such as the one beside him) had always seemed to relax him to no avail. The night was a tiny bit cold but he took it in, the lights sprinkling a nice bit of limelight on everyone and the faint scent of alcohol on the wind. He put down his half empty beer and feeling particularly active, jumped onto the stage to rock out to the tunes alongside Rowan, stripping off his jacket as he went and tossing it on the floor nearby. All he had in his mind now was the clear night sky and the long expanse of stage he had to move about freely. As he did all of this he held out a hand to Charlotte.
"Would you like to dance, Madam?"
He hadn't been able to talk to her this whole past week and he missed the feel of someone's touch. Even though it would be Char's and even though he knew he had no chance in hell to get with her, he still longed for some friendliness, some spark that would set him on the right track again, god knew he had missed that for so long.
