Helga stepped out of the bookstore, tucking her receipt into her bag full of new books. Really, she didn't need any more as she had her apartment covered with them, but it was her weakness. When she'd spied the newest book in the Thousand Nights of Passion series, she'd had to grab it for herself. Now all she needed was a cup of coffee, some more skin creme, and her shopping list would be all checked off.

There were times Dean really missed his couch, which for some reason always was more comfortable than his bed, and now was now of those times. He had still yet to really rest up after the raid, but had sadly run out of coffe that very same day. Naturally, he had to go out and buy more, before he'd snapp. For real that is. If people thought he was a jerk now, they wouldn't want to meet him when lacking caffeine. Even Dean himself could admit he was and ass then.
With this in mind and a hurry to get hom and sleep the upcomming days away, he almsot ran stragith into Helga.
He jered back a little in reflex, castign the woman a glare before he recognised her. "Oh, well if it isn't the cop," he mutterd dryly. He would've almsot admitted she was an 'ok' person, if that incident hand't taken place.

Helga turned when she heard a familiar voice. Sounded a little more irritable than when they'd first talked, but after that raid it wasn't so surprising. "And you're the bartender." Helga replied, equally flat in tone. "There, we've both stated the obvious." She tried to stifle a cough, but it wormed itself out anyways. "If you're here to rant, make it quick. I've still got shopping to do." She still hadn't picked out a wreath for Aurora's funeral. But that was something she wasn't looking forward to.

Dean's expression stayed the same as ever, but he didn't bother holding back the irritation he felt as he spoke. "Rant?" he repeated, as if what she just said was stupid. "Now what good would that do? But well, since you're so kindly offering to waste time on that, then why the hell not," he snorted. "Although I'm more curious how many people you and your group sent to the hospital, or the graveyard," he added darkly. "Was it all worth it in end?" he mocked.

Helga's grip tightened on her bag. "Taking out a drug supplier? That's what we're supposed to do." she answered evenly. "We didn't want any casualties. Especially not Auro--" Helga cut herself off, sighing. "I don't like what happened any more than anyone else. It shouldn't have happened. Had some idiot not taken that first shot, the whole fiasco could've been avoided. Maybe all anyone would've tried to do was run." They still hadn't figured out who it was. If they were lucky, they'd be halfway across the world already.

He rolled his eyes at this. He knew there was no point in blaming her or ranting about what just happened. Shit happens all the time after all, especially in a town like this. he had guessed their goal was something like that, but that didn't excuse all the damage they did. His eyes seemed to soften a little, for only a mere second when she started to say a name but stopped herself. So, did they lose one fo their own too? Well, they should've expected that.
"When someone points a gun at you, then of course there'd be someone else pulling one too," he said after a moment, moving a hand towards his ace and rubbed his temple. "You cops claim to care for this city, wanting to grab the trash and throw it out. But look at the new mess you leave after yourselfs," he muttered, locking his eyes with hers. "It's really hard to see the difference between the 'good' guys and the bad ones."

Helga frowned as she stared at him. He hit closer to home than he probably knew. Lowering her eyes, she quietly said, "Sometimes it is hard to see." All she wanted to do was help people, and instead she was drowning in red. Clean up one mess, step in another. Some days she wanted to save the city; other days, she wanted it burn to the ground. It was a wonder she hadn't thrown herself into the river yet.

He lowered his hand, and lifted his gaze from the ground as she spoke up again, but he didn't exactly hear what he wasbeen expecting. Well, to be honest, he hadn't really been expecting anything in particular. Just maybe not her agreeing with him and actually averting her eyes, as if ashamed. He stared at her quielty form a moment, feeling more drained than he should and let out another heavy sigh. "At least you see it," he mutterd after a moment, lettign his eyes trail over towards the streets and the people passing by. "To some extent, and that's better what most of the people in this town could ever bother to offer."

"Only a fool believes they're in the right all the time." Helga answered, feeling weary as well. She looked back at him, squinting at him curiously. She remembered how he'd help Meg during the fight, how precise he'd been despite the smoke. No bartender, even one who'd probably seen his share of shootouts in Attica, would have such skill.

"You seemed to know what you were doing, when you were patching Miss Stacey up. Curious for a bartender." she said flatly, eyebrow arched.

He chuckled dryly at her reply, finding himself agreeing with her completely. Too bad the cops little stunt was still fresh in his mind, and enough so still have him pissed off at the whole thing. For being someone who claimed not to give a shit about anything or anyone, he sure felt angry on the behalf of those people who got caught in the raid. No matter how much eh tried to ignore or forget it, his instcit to help and protect others was still deeply implanted in him.

Helga had apparently taken notice of that too.
He scoffed, glaring back at her again but not as fierce like before. "I did know what I was doing, yes," he muttered, seeing no reason in denying it really. It would be pointless to play dumb infront of Helga of all people.
