*Acel, startled out of the book he’d been reading, quickly takes off his reading glasses and hides them in a pocket.*
"Oh I missed you, you big lug! Wot be you been up to? Have you gotten a team to fight on? Are you in good health?"
I missed you too, friend. *Acel grins.* Not so much on a team, they just throw me in with the rabble at Teufort. All my friends are at different bases, but that is fine. Things are mostly going well, though, uh… I still drink too much, sometimes.
What about you, how are you getting on? Where have you been?
Oh you know, here and there! They sort of had me moving around too!” He laughed softly. “Though I’m so happy to here you’re doing so well at work! Though I’m curious why you’ve started drinking again.”
Well, I… never entirely stopped, exactly… *Acel trails off into mumbling.*
Perks up. “Wot?! You’ve never stopped?! You’re not a Demoman, you know, it’s dangerous to be an excessive drinker while on the job!”
