Ashton's amethyst eyes looked at Victoria before looking toward where the pale girl pointed in order to examine the car. Joel huh? He indeed seemed to be doing quite well in the race. So the tall blonde gave a cheerful smile, glad it seemed the woman's choice of cheering was going well. Ashton didn't particularly have any certain one to root for, just it was nice to watch. Victoria... at the feel of her hand and on closer inspection, it did seem this woman seemed to be on the frailer side. Or at least quite more delicate in comparison to Ashton. The pale woman's skin was soft while Ashton's was calloused and rougher. Some scars glittered in the upper arms of Victoria, but they at least required more closer inspection.
Scars littered Ashton's tall frame, and the most obvious one wasn't as easy to hide without wearing a mask and looking like someone straight out of a horror flick. Her toned arms had some cuts and perhaps some burns, though nothing she was ashamed of hiding. She knew that she wasn't in any shape or form.... have that much girly looks. It sometimes was a shame, but Ashton wasn't disappointed. She was herself and that was okay.
Blinking a little in confusion at the sudden cheering from Victoria and her peers, Ashton gave a silent smile in return as Victoria offered a drink. Generally, the firefighter didn't care for alcohol. Although she did enjoy the really sweet ones like frilly martini's. If she wasn't technically possibly required to go on a rescue, Ashton would of accepted the gesture out of politeness. Of course, since Marine probably wouldn't mind since she didn't like Ashton being back on the job, feeling as if since the accident Ashton should take some extra rest. But it was fine, her back wasn't that bad.
Instead though, the tall woman politely smiled and shook her head while waving her hands gingerly in order to decline the offer and giving a soft bow in thanks before tapping her badge to notify that it was probably for the best that the firefighter did not ingest alcohol. Although she did wave cheerfully to Victoria's other companions, be it friends or family.
Not long however, someone else approached her that managed to catch Ashton's attention. Mostly for the fact that the red haired woman had purposely seemed to walk right to her. Amethyst gaze blinking curiously at the red haired woman, the dirty blonde gave another bright friendly smile and waved her right hand in a cheerful greeting. Doing a similar introduction as she did with Victoria, Ashton held her badge up with one hand before holding her other hand out for a handshake.
Tilting her head to the side in a questioning and curious manner of who this was and why it seemed she was interested in seeking her out in the sea of people. Not that she minded, Ashton welcomed all the friends.
