Seifer snorted and drained his glass. "I don't remember her having that much sense when she was teaching me."
(Zell had explained over the first bottle exactly why Quistis was ignoring them; Seifer had been too busy trying to fit in "Why are you here?" and "Why are you telling me this?" to ask the marginally more relevant question "What makes you think I care?")
He was watching him when Seifer reached for the bottle. "Rinoa keeps saying she'll come visit you, but I think she's been pretty busy. Her and Squall are -"
"Why do you think I want to know about this?" Oh, now it came out, hours after it would've done any good. Zell blinked at him for a few seconds, then leaned forwards.
"You wanna know what I think?"
Seifer smirked automatically. "I didn't think chickens could think." It was the wine that made him add "Besides, I know what you think."
"Yeah. You think I'm so pathetic I need you to keep me company."
Zell shook his head, looking disgusted, and gulped down what was left in his glass. "I think you're a fucking moron."
Seifer shrugged. For once, they agreed on something.
