Jamie hadn't really thought too far ahead with where things would lead with regards to Iollan; from the sounds of it, it just sounded like the man needed a little bit of companionship and perhaps just someone to talk to. She knew, though, what effects alcohol could potentially have on her. She was unaware of how it could or would affect Iollan, but she was open to at least going to the Shack with him and drinking some, talking some, and however the evening ended would be whatever it be. Today had been a seemingly difficult day for Jamie in regards to thinking about her brother, and so she figured that Iollan was going through the same problem today, and so they'd both benefit from a little bit of companionship.
It was true that Jamie hadn't really had that much of a troubled life; in fact the only real tragedy that she'd had was losing her brother; everything else went fine throughout her life. Of course now was a different story; she'd been struggling financially and with her career, but she was trying to keep her head up. Occasionally, she'd slip and let herself get carried into some dim, dark place within herself, but then it seemed that her brother would come and rescue her, giving her the proverbial kick in the seat of her pants.
"Sounds like a plan. I'm there most afternoons; sometimes I'm there til closing." She was still considering herself a relatively new artist, but she was definitely improving her skills. Some of the other artists (one particular in mind) hadn't really taken a liking to her, but Jamie was slowly working on that relationship (in more ways than one). It definitely made Jamie smile to hear that if Iollan went in to get another tattoo, she'd be the one he'd goto.
"I've only seen pictures of Ireland. Being a guidance counselor? Wow... I bet that can be tough sometimes, but rewarding too. Helping people, especially young teens." Jamie looked over at Iollan from time to time, then looked forward, slowly but surely seeing the sign for the Shack in the distance; they were definitely getting close.
