RP: A proper date
Date: 27 June 2006
Characters: Guilian, Gabrielle
Location: Gabrielle's house, then Escapism
Private/Public: Private, but others can see them
Summary: Guilian hopes to capitalise on the very good impression he's hopefully made on Mademoiselle Delacour, with a date to Escapism.
Guilian's week had been woeful - just when he thought he was turning a corner and getting on top of his addiction to dark magic, along comes a battle, and he nearly went under again.
The only thing keeping him going this week was the thought of a date with Gabrielle. He had spent a good part of the day in Hogsmeade, looking for a new house. There was one he was interested in, in Rowena Road, but he knew the owner was asking far too much. Perhaps he thought that the Montague name meant he could ask a king's ransom, and that Guilian would pay it without batting an eyelid. Sure, if it had been worth what he wanted, he would have coughed up the amount quite happily.
But he forgot about that now as he had for more delicate negotiations to wade through tonight with Gabrielle.
When he was at his lowest during the week, he'd pulled out her recording, and listened to it. He didn't think he'd ever hear a sweeter voice, and every time he closed his eyes, he saw her smile. He could still imagine the feel of her lips from that ever-so-fleeting kiss, and he hoped that he could taste more of that before this night was through.
Perhaps he was over-obsessing about her, but she was a beautiful woman, and he had been raised to woo beautiful women. The fact she seemed to help him out of his funk didn't pass him, either.
He had a large bouquet of multicoloured roses delivered a little earlier in the evening, but he still held on to the corsage he had bought for her.
He stepped up confidently to the door of her home at Bilius Way, exceedingly confident, yet still oddly a little nervous about this date with a woman he had barely been able to stop thinking about all week. Knocking hard at the door, he waited.
