With a beat, Ives pocketed the money. “Well, if you’re sure,” he said, still a little uneasy about it. Twenty bucks was a big deal to him. “So what have you been up to today?” He asked, looking back over at Noah.

”Totally sure,” Noah replied with a nod. He honestly would have given Ives more but he hadn’t expected to need much money on this outing and hadn’t brought more with him. Plus, most of his money was on a card, not actual cash.
When asked about his day, he shrugged. ”Nothing much. Been chilling with my dog, mostly.”
A German shepherd, those were good dogs. “How old is he? What’s his name?” Ives asked excitedly, far too excited about this dog he had just heard about. He couldn’t help it, he had a great amount of love for dogs, he connected to them.

Noah liked to judge people based on how they reacted to the fact that he had a dog. A negative reaction told him he needed to stay away from that person, while a positive one told him he could keep that person around. Ives was clearly excited here, and that was a good sign. It made Noah happy. ”Blitzen’s four. I usually just call him Blitz, though, but he responds to both.”

Noah couldn’t help but laugh at the reindeer comment. ”Yeah, except he doesn’t fly, unfortunately.” It would be pretty cool if he could, though. Maybe Noah could make something like a doggy jet pack for him. He could do it.
Back on topic, though, he immediately pulled out his phone and went to the pictures to show Ives when photos were mentioned. ”Sure do!”
Once Noah confirmed he had pictures, Ives waited excitedly for them. “You know, I’ve always wanted a dog, I had one as a kid, he was a little chihuahua named Tanto, he was blind in one eye and was missing a leg,” Ives explained. “He died awhile ago though, I haven’t been able to get a dog since, but one day, I want a border collie.” He was especially attached to border collies for some reason.

”I’ve always been a fan of bigger dogs,” Noah started when he heard Ives talk about the dog he once had. He stayed quiet after a moment when Ives brought up Tanto’s death a few years back. Blur was Noah’s first pet, but even he understood how hard it was to lose a pet.
Noah perked back up at the mention of Border Collies, though. ”Those are good dogs. Smart and loyal. Here,” he added, bringing up pictures of Blitz and showing his phone off over to Ives.
Ives paused, listening as Noah explained what he did. “That’s pretty cool, Norman’s mom is a police captain I think,” he added with a small shrug. He knew Norman had once considered being a police officer and later a detective, but knowing Norman, he wouldn’t be able to follow orders.
“Wynn, Captain Hazel Wynn,” Ives recited with ease, shrugging a little. “She’s mostly stationed in Brooklyn though, I dunno if you would’ve heard of her,” he added. Though then again, he didn’t really know how the police network worked.

Captain Hazel Wynn…that rang a bell. He didn’t personally know her, but he had heard the name before. ”I know of her,” he responded. Beyond her name that was about it, he didn’t know much else about her.
Ives nodded. “That’s cool, hey maybe one day you’ll meet her,” he offered, figuring they might since they worked in the same field. Not that everyone in the same field knew each other, after all not all street musicians knew each other, but Ives did know a lot of them.

It would be interesting to meet Captain Wynn one day. Noah didn’t know much about her other than how she was the mother of one of Ives’s friends, but it would be nice to branch out and meet the important people in Ives’s lives and the lives of his other friends considering he wanted to continue this budding friendship he had going on.
Not wanting to kill any conversation, Noah readied a question. ”How long have you been out here anyway?” He assumed he had been here for a bit now, at least since he had texted Noah, but he was curious about what the true answer would be.
Ives paused and glanced around, taking notice of the different cars parked and the people walking and checking to see if Bobo the Bongo guy was still out and about - he was not - and then finally he looked back to Noah and shrugged. “I dunno, I came out here around 7, what time is it now?” He asked.

A couple hours wasn’t bad, but… Noah tilted his head, looking at Ives, down to the guitar, and then back to Ives. ”Why not take a little break? We could grab something to eat, on me,” he casually added, not wanting Ives to have to possibly worry about money.
Ives blinked, opening his mouth to refuse when his stomach let out a big growl. Sheepishly, he looked down at his stomach and then back up at Noah. “I guess I am pretty hungry,” he admitted. It would probably be good to take a food break.

”If you leave it up to me we’ll just be going to McDonalds,” Noah explained with a light chuckle to his words. ”I know it’s not fancy or anything, and they aren’t as good as the ones back home, but it’s food.”
McDonald’s, now that was somewhere Ives was familiar with. “McDonald’s work,” he said. “I actually go there a bit, not too often but it’s cheap, so it’s a nice way to get food,” he explained with a simple shrug. It wasn’t the most healthy food but it was affordable.

Noah knew there were better options out there, but McDonald's was quick, easy, and cheap, not that cheap really mattered to him. Money didn't really matter to him in general, but that was another story for another time. McDonald's had always been fun for him, something he enjoyed compared to other things he had to endure, so he was glad to hear that Ives was down for some fast food.
"McDonald's it is," Noah chimed out. Luckily there was never a McDonald's too far away, so they wouldn't even have to go far to get to where they wanted.

Dark Sun: I had just gotten cozy in bed and it forced me to walk all the way upstairs just to trim it off, and then back down again.
