WHO: Theseus and Nike
WHEN: New Years [Backdated]
WHERE: Theseus' boat, out for a little ocean drive...
WHAT: First time he's seen Nike since the fiasco with Phaedra
Theseus didn't have any clue that Nike had been battling her inner feelings since the whole ordeal with Phaedra. He was just glad the only other person he was harboring on his boat was his daughter (who was out on a date for the night), so he could have some time alone. It was more homey now that he wasn't living alone. Though, he didn't put it past Phaedra to cook up some scheme to get back at him for that shiner and bloody nose she was dealt by his swift hitting girlfriend. In actuality he'd never seen Nike so furious in the context. His history didn't speak well for him, and he could have been seduced by Phaedra if he were the same man as he was then. Thankfully, the stars aligned just right, and Nike didn't blame him for being the pathetic man he may have been had this been the last time he'd seen Phaedra.
The lights Zoe had put on the railing from Christmas were still there, their shiny yellow and white bulbs shining out against the dock, being an easy target for his date to see. He could be romantic when he was trying to get his way, and on this particular night it was a celebration. Christmas he couldn't get on board with yet, but New Years seemed a holiday he could get behind. This was in fact a new year for him wasn't it? He'd become a tougher stronger man, more importantly a father, and now he could stand up for himself without being scared of the consequences. This was important for him!
He had two deck chairs out with blankets, and a table with the bottle of rum she'd given him for Christmas.
