As they walk, Parker holds the umbrella more over Adlai than he does himself, watching him carefully from the corner of his eyes. He debates whether he should have grabbed the extra coat from his desk, but at this point that's probably more trouble than it's worth. There's nothing that wouldn't guarantee this guy running of with it in the hopes there was anything more than lint in the pockets.

Parker leads them to a little place tucked away from prying eyes, a place he likes to visit when he's alone but needs the background noise to keep himself from losing it. He lowers his umbrella as they enter and removes his hat as he moves towards one of the back tables expecting Adlai to still be following after him. There are only a handful of other people thanks to the rain, though a few of them are soaked and waiting for it to pass. Voices murmur low over each other as music plays from an unknown source behind the bar.

"This place is usually a bit more lively, but it should be fine," Parker says while he pulls off his coat and nods to the old gentleman behind the bar, who gets started on making two coffees. After resting his coat on the back of the chair and hooking his umbrella next to it, Parker takes a seat.

"And I dragged you out here, so I've got you covered as long as you cooperate with me," he adds, pushing forward a tattered paper menu.

Adlai is visibly tense, eyeing every patron suspiciously. But he's really in no position to complain, so he sits down stiffly at the table with Parker, removing his hat and clutching it tight in his hands. He looks down at the menu without touching it, then back across at Parker.

"Your boss usually so friendly, then?"

Parker watches Adlai closely as he pulls out a cigarette and lights it between his lips. Slowly breathing out the smoke, he shakes his head, "I'd say you caught him on a good day."

He doesn't elaborate any further.

"Sounds like you're dealin' with some real trouble though. Any big names I should be worried about, talking to you?" he questions, his own way of asking if Adlai's mixed up with some kind of organized crime, which would make sense as to why going to the police wasn't an option. Plus, Allman Detective Agency isn't exactly a stranger to these types of cases - though Parker himself has never gotten a chance to work any.

The meaning doesn't miss Adlai. He shifts uncomfortably, a somewhat shaky hand fiddling with his tie as he tries to figure out what he's safe to say. He looks away from Parker for a long moment, and then at him, anywhere but his eyes.

"One or two," he says in a tone meant to be curt and unaffected. "Speaking of names, I didn't catch yours."

Parker's patient, seeming to pay more attention to his cigarette than Adlai while he waits for a response even though on the inside his mind is racing.

He looks up. One or two is more than he's ever had to deal with before.

"Parker Emery. Remind me of yours?"

"Adlai Babler." He looks away from Parker again, his eyes following the waiter as he brings them their coffees. He thanks the man politely and waits for him to be gone before looking down at the table, at Parker's mug. "You understand why I can't tell you much, Mr. Emery. I'm in a delicate position."

Parker copies the thanks and watches as the older man makes his way back to the other side of the room, then behind the bar. When he brings his attention back to Adlai, his eyes linger a moment, thinking how this man certainly doesn't look the part of an organized criminal, too soft and--

he stops his train of though there, following Adlai's gaze down to his own coffee.

He lets out another slow breath of smoke, leaving a pause before he answers,

"Of course, Mr. Babler... or do you prefer Adlai?"

"Mr. Babler is fine," he says, sounding more tired than he wants to. He takes a drink of his coffee, closing his eyes as he does so, then opening them and looking past Parker, over his shoulder. He sets his mug down as gently as he can, keeping his hands wrapped around it, trying to warm himself up. He's still largely drenched, the heavy cloth of his suit sticking to him.

He looks back at Parker, not meeting his eyes but trying to glean any information about the man that he can.

Parker's expression settles as a frown and he wraps his right hand around his coffee, tapping the end of his cigarette into the ashtray set between them. "Delicate but urgent, it seems. Especially considering this weather."

Lifting his cup, he looks like he's about the say something, but changes his mind and takes a small sip from his cup instead.

He looks tired, with bags under his eyes and hair slightly disheveled. His suit is ill-fitting too, second hand and worn and as the seconds pass it's occurring to him that he may be way out of his depth. He doesn't know how carefully to tread or what to ask, all those he's worked with before have usually been extremely forthcoming.

Adlai takes note of the shabbiness of Parker's suit, of the circles under his eyes. Again, he rather wishes someone with any air of experience was taking his case, rather than the leftovers, but he needs to swallow his pride. Someone is better than no one, he tells himself, even if he's not entirely sure he believes it.

"Gerald Spade," he says, folding his hands on the table in between them. "Gerald Spade is about to turn up dead. He's an intern for Kang."
