Generally, Rayna avoided the local bars.
This was not to say she hated them, on the contrary, she quite enjoyed the idea of gathering with a group of people intending to drink until they were bleary-eyed and stumbling. She often went there with her comrades in arms, if only to watch them consume twice as much as they could handle, just to impress their lieutenant, who instead of being impressed got blackmail material that would last ages from there on. It was when she was alone, that the circumstances were different. When she was with her comrades, she could forget about the stares of the average conservative man, who believed a woman had no place in a bar if she were not working in it.
Still, after a long days work, training new recruits and doing her own daily workout and training sessions, Rayna craved a drink. Of course, she wasn't stupid enough to get drunk, not in a bar as run down and filled with barbarians as this one. All she wanted was one glass of a good whiskey and not to be looked at like she was the epitome of a disgrace by men who were spending their time getting drunk until their organs cried for salvation and doing absolutely nothing with their lives.
"No company today, Lieutenant?" The bar tender asked her with a smile as he poured her a glass of whiskey. Ah, perhaps she came in here a little too often nowadays, or maybe she was just on the same routine too often. Still, those working in the bar seemed to respect her more than the other occupants of the bar. At least she had that.
"Not today. I just really needed a drink. Long days work. I think I deserve it." Rayna told him, and the bar tender nodded in understanding, simply pushing the glass towards Rayna, and took the money Rayna set out on the table to pay for the beverage. Before he left, Rayna simply lifted her glass, and cheered to the bartender, rolling her eyes when the gesture was ignored. Instead of saying anything, the woman simply sighed, taking her drink in hand, and taking small sips of her beverage, finding some semblance of peace within the bar, despite not being among her comrades like usual.
