"Hey, it was a fair question. It was at least good enough not to merit that response."

((Benjamin Fields: Pregame Begin))

This wasn't exactly a normal situation for Ben. He didn't normally enter gas stations at 12:30 in the morning. Shit, he wasn't supposed to be awake at 12:30 in the morning. Normally, he'd be in bed right now, getting himself refreshed for another day of school. Being the student that he was, he had to make sure he was in top mental health for the coming days. But he wasn't right now, because he had forgotten to get apple juice when he had gone shopping earlier today and Lana would be sad if she wasn't able to get apple juice every morning. Being the man of the house, and the one with shopping duty, Ben felt that he had to be the one to fix this problem, which was why he was here at 12:30 in the morning to get apple juice. He figured that he probably could have come at a time that wasn't midnight, but he wasn't the best person at forward thinking, which is why he supposed that he decided that doing this was a smart and a good idea.

Brilliant.

He had walked through the doors to see two people talking to one another, both he knew from school. Well, "knew" was overemphasised in that instance there, as they were more people that he kinda only talked to in classes or saying "hi" to in the hallways. Conrad was in the student council, and was nice enough to him to put him in his good books. Tara was a little weird, though. Wasn't she always reading disaster stories? Kinda grim. Still though, that didn't discredit her as a person, and this wasn't a school situation, so he didn't have to white knight every case of bullying or insults that he saw. Maybe Conrad was fine with this. He decided to apologize to her. Hey, maybe she was a nice person inside.

"Oh, sorry. Got too far ahead of myself there. You sell apple juice?"

"Hey, Conrad."

So far so good, it seemed. Tara's comment towards Conrad mostly seemed to be in jest, considering that Conrad didn't take offence to it. Tara didn't take his white knight attitude that badly, looking more concerned at his entrance in the gas station. She acted up a bit about it, asking why all of them were here.

"I really don't think that's the important question here, but I don't really know. Maybe its something ~spooky~" He made a slightly mocking gesture, putting his hand up to his mouth in faux shock. "I just came here to get something I forgot earlier today."

Ben noted the fact that this wasn't a situation that happened every day, though. He didn't quite know how this situation would happen. Maybe it was something spooky. It didn't matter, though. What did matter was that he knew that this place had apple juice. It wasn't the size that he wanted, but Lana never looked inside the fridge anyway so he didn't think she'd notice.

"It'll manage." He said as he walked down into the store, looking for the apple juice.

He found the apple juice. Tara was right, they were in those little cup things that you give to old people to drink. Let's see... two of these would make a cup of apple juice, and Lana normally had two per day, at breakfast and dinner. He picked up six, just to be safe, and headed back to the counter.

He came back to see Conrad trying to buy a sandwich for himself, but for whatever reason Tara wasn't very happy about that. He almost thought that she was overcharging him, which he was pretty sure it was illegal? Either way, she was being really passive aggressive to him for no real reason. He went up to the counter.

"Wow, you're really taking the piss out of him buying that sandwich, aren't you?"

Conrad for whatever reason didn’t take his change. Instead, he gave Tara fifteen more dollars before leaving the place. Was he retarded or something? She was pretty clearly giving him back his money there. Tara was kinda surprised, moving her head both ways towards him and the money, asking what she should do. He supposed that it was his turn at the counter, and stepped forwards.

“Hey, take it this way, you now have 25 more dollars than normal.” He looked around a bit. “Probably more than what they pay you at this place.” He managed a small smirk at her, trying to get her to do the same. “If you really care about being overpayed by him give him the money back tomorrow.”

Now that that was over with, he lifted up the apple juice cups, six in total. He made sure that he didn’t drop any of them on the floor, before he put them on the counter. “How much should I pay for these?”

He was probably going to have to get more after school today, but hey, at least he had something that worked for now.

Tara wasn't really okay with the prospect of giving the money back to Conrad, it seemed. She visibly grimaced at what he said, and referenced... Abraham Lincoln? He wasn't quite sure what that meant, despite being an American History buff. Oh well, didn't matter. If he really cared he'd just research it on the internet tomorro-wait, not tomorrow, today, technically. He had to remember that it was past midnight now. It was going to throw him off while he was here but once he got sleep he'd be able to actually adjust to the fact that tomorrow was actually today right now. Once he got up today, it wouldn't matter anymore, so it didn't matter, in the long run.

Tara ran one of the apple juices through the counter six times, and gave him the price. $11? Huh, that was more expensive than he'd thought it would be. He reached into his own pockets, trying to get a grip on his wallet. She asked why he needed them, and he responded truthfully.

"It's actually for my sister. I forgot to do some when I was doing the shopping earlier today. I was going to get some more tomor-today after school but I wanted to make sure she wouldn't complain."

He grabbed his wallet, placing it on the counter. He took out three $5 bills and placed them on the counter. "Here you go." He said in a singsong tone of voice.

Tara went through the math, telling him how she had gotten that price from only using one of the things. He honestly didn't really need it that much, really; he had gotten the main idea of it when she got the price out. She probably was just saying that for herself for whatever reason. Eh, it didn't really matter that much, soon as she gave him his change he'd be out of here and he'd probably forget about this in a few days.

And she did. She passed over the $4 of change that he needed. He was kinda sad that she didn't announce the amount of change like she did with Conrad, he was kinda hoping that she did so that he could put more money on the counter as a joke and so that they could laugh together, but she didn't, which sucked. She asked him if he had any classes with Conrad. He... was pretty sure he was? He wasn't quite sure. He was probably in his maths or English class or something. He was pretty sure he didn't have any of them in the next school day, though.

"I don't think I have one with him today, sorry. I think he's in student council, though, so he might be there today, if that helps." He wasn't quite sure that what he said made sense. It probably did, but he was tired and he wasn't sure. He took his change off the counter. "I'm going to go to bed now, if you don't mind. See you later I guess." He picked up his six cups and left the store.
