PostSubject: Movies and Coffee (p)   Fri Apr 28, 2017 12:59 am

 Over the course of two days, Chance has been flirting with Jaques. From good morning and goodnight texts, to bringing Jaques a breakfast sandwich to class on Friday. He called him a couple of times to see how he was doing and whenever he saw him, he'd stop, made his presence known, and gave him a little touch in and there.

Now, 7:45 in the afternoon, Chance was standing outside of the movie theater dressed in black button down shirt, khaki shorts, and black Jordan's. He wondered what movie Jaques wanted to see. It was certainly a tie between A Cure for Wellness and Get Out. Scrolling through his phone, Chance sat down on the edge of a bench and waited for his date to arrive.

back to ordinary life
it's friday and jaques still doesn't know what he's doing. he hadn't told anyone he had a date tonight, not that there was anyone he really could tell aside from his parents, and he wasn't even supposed to come over for dinner tonight so he didn't have any reason to tell them. he can't tell if he's supposed to feel a thrill of rebellion at keeping it a secret, or if he should feel shame at not having anyone to tell.

chance's flirting hadn't helped that much. jaques couldn't help but be hopelessly charmed, even though he's been trying his hardest to keep his head clear, keep the possibility of the whole thing being an elaborate prank in his mind so he doesn't get so hurt if it happens. but chance had been so sweet, texting and calling and bringing him breakfast and it's everything he's ever wanted, really.

in spite of how preoccupied he's been with the date, jaques still somehow ends up running late (for his standards, at least), arriving at 7:50. he's wearing a striped blue button down and a pair of slacks, but he has no clue if that's appropriate for the situation. gods, he doesn't know what he's doing.

chance is waiting outside the theater for him, sitting on a bench and scrolling through his phone. jaques' breath catches slightly when he sees him, and he almost turns around and runs back home to spend the evening with a book and a cup of tea. but he ignores the urge, taking a deep breath and forcing himself to move forward.

"hi," he says, hoping his nervousness isn't too obvious. chance looks so calm. jaques doesn't know how he does it.

Chance turned his head to see Jaques. With a wide smile on his face, he stood up from the bench and put his phone into his right pocket. He gives him a brief hug before taking a small step back.

"How are you?" He asked, studying his face, then his outfit. He was no son of Venus, but he certainly approved of his outfit. "Hm, I wonderin' what movie you wanted to see. For me, it's a tie between A Cure for Wellness or Get Out." Chance grinned, his eyes flickering to those lips. They were so nice. Plump, pink and very, very kissable. His hair was another thing since Chance had a thing for guys with long hair.

"Or we can watch something else. What else is out right now?"

gods, jaques has no clue what he's doing. he has no clue. he hopes chance can't notice how jaques' breath catches slightly when he hugs him. he hasn't even hugged someone who isn't a relative.

"i'm well," he says, trying to come off as coy rather than shy. "how are you?" he'd practiced in the mirror for hours, trying to make the words sound natural, like he's done this before. he still flushes when chance looks him over, not sure how to handle the attention. no one has ever looked at him the way chance looks at him. he likes it.

"a cure for wellness sounds interesting," he says with a small smile. gods, he wants this to work out so badly.

"I'm good, great now," The twenty-two year old college student moistened his lips and continued talking to his date. "And A Cure for Wellness it is." That was Chance's top pick anyways. The son of Fortuna stood in the short line with Jaques and waited for a bit. He decided to do away with the awkward silence and instead, made small talk with Jaques. It wasn't really anything major, just about the weather and their impending final they had in a few weeks.

Once they made it to the ticket booth, Chance took out his wallet and paid for the two adult tickets with a ten percent discount that really came in handy. He walked out of line once they got tickets, jerking his head slightly to the side to motion for Jaques to follow.

"I got tickets for the 8:15 showing if that's okay." The son of Fortuna handed one to his date for him to have as they walked inside. Once inside, they waited in line again to be told where to go.

jaques' smile widens and his blush deepens. he's positive he shouldn't be this charmed, but chance is just so nice and jaques wants this so bad.

he feels clumsy, making his way through the small talk with stutters, but chance is engaged and actually interested in what jaques has to say, even though it's just insignificant small talk about their classes and the weather and whatever else comes up. it's nice, so nice that jaques needs to keep reminding himself not to get too comfortable. gods, if chance says it's all a joke he'll cry. who was he kidding, saying it wouldn't hurt? maybe he should just pretend he's gotten a text from his mom saying he needs to go home. he likes chance so much. he couldn't handle this being a prank.

but then chance is already buying their tickets, and jaques can't just bail now, not after chance went and spent actual money. gods, he's f*ck. jaques is so f*cked.

"that's fine," he says softly, taking the ticket from chance and following him into the theater. "thank you for paying."

Chance would've been a fool if he hadn't notice the nervousness that oozed from Jaques. He hoped with the progression of the date, he'd be able to calm him down and get him to relax.

"No problem." He grinned, looking at Jaques, then back forward. It wasn't long before their tickets were split and told that their theater was going to be number three on the left. "Since we have some time before the movie starts, do you want to go and get popcorn?" He asked standing off to the side and out of the way of traffic. Friday and Saturday nights were usually busy during this time.

Honesty, Chance wanted to do a classic dinner and a movie, but remembered that they agreed to coffee and a movie instead. Chance studied the legacy of Justitia and Honos for a bit before speaking. "...Hey, calm down. You're doin' fine." Chance reached out and gently took Jaques' hand, lightly brushing his fingertips against his.

jaques thought he was maybe doing alright at hiding the fact that he was completely bricking it, but apparently not well enough. a wave of embarrassment washes over him, completely distracting him from the fact that chance had asked a question earlier.

"this isn't, like. a joke, right?" he asks, quietly and barely hiding the tremor in his voice. "like, at the end of the night you're not going to tell me i'm boring and you were just seeing if you could actually make me think it was real?" he doesn't say, this is my first time on a date, or i've been bullied and made fun of before, or i like you so much please like me back.

"...What?" Chance was a bit taken aback by what Jaques had asked him. At first he was offended, but then realized how coy and shy he was. He was smart enough to put two and two  together and come to the census that this was in fact his first time being taken on a date.

Chance sighed and licked his lips. "Look, Jaques." He was holding his hand now. "I ain't playin' games with you, I promise. You're cute, smart, got long hair and I want to get you know more." He shrugged his shoulders and searched his eyes. "Do you really think I'd use you like that?"

jaques shrugs. "i wouldn't put it past someone to do," he says, staring down at the floor and then at chances' hand in his. "i'm not good at picking up context clues. people think it's funny, sometimes."

it doesn't bother him that much anymore, not usually. most of the time he doesn't even think about it. but then there are moments when he's around new people, or people who are so much more socially adept than he is, and it all just comes rushing back. the itching paranoia of being made into the butt of a joke and a hesitancy to react because he's expecting cruel laughter if he doesn't respond right.

Chance know understood why Jaques had been this way. It wasn't because he was uninterested or sigh, but because he was afraid that he was setting him up. Unfortunately, he didn't know that doing such a thing was totally out of Chance's character.

He was a player, sure, but he wasn't an asshole. "Well, I ain't that type of person, first off. I'm not gon' do that to you, 'ight? Me askin' you out on a date was real. I don't play like that, alright?" He lifted his hand to his lips and pressed them against it. Chance then lowered it and gently let go of it. The son of Fortuna looked down at his shoes and found a penny. He bent down and handed it to Jaques. "Do you trust me?"

gods. for a second jaques feels overwhelmed, but it's not in a bad way like when there are too many people or too much noise or too many lights. he's afraid he's going to cry when chance presses a kiss to his hand, but he blinks the tears away before they can spill.

he takes the penny, rubbing his thumb over the tarnished surface. he knows he's probably overthinking it, but he can't stop thinking about the part in peter pan where wendy gives peter a thimble to represent a kiss.

jaques knows chance isn't lying now, can sense it in his bones. "yeah," he says, finally looking up from the floor and into chance's eyes. "yeah, i trust you."

"Good. I'm glad you finally trust me." Chance smiled a bit and nodded his head to lead him toward the concession counter. "How about this, I'll pay for the popcorn too, but you have to get us coffee afterwards." Chance looked behind him at Jaques as he stood in line. He ordered a large popcorn and two bottled waters to counteract the saltiness of the popcorn.

After paying for it, he handed one of the waters to Jaques and started to walk toward the theater their movie was playing in. "...Thanks for agreeing to go on a date with me."

jaques bites down on his lower lip, trying to keep from smiling ridiculously. he's sure he shouldn't like chance this much already, but he does. no one like him has ever taken the time of day to acknowledge jaques. no one has been this kind to him before.

"thank you," he says softly, still smiling as he takes the bottle of water chance gave him. he wishes chance had a free hand. jaques hadn't held anyone's hand since he was a little kid. it was nice. he didn't realize how much he missed the feeling until chance had taken his hand.

he blushes when chance thanks him, needing to hold back his smile again so he doesn't look absolutely ridiculous. "i should be thanking you," he says. "no one's ever treated me like this before."

Chance nodded his head. "You welcome." He grinned and continued to walk down the wide hallway before turning into the room that held their theater. He opened the door for Jaques.

"You shouldn't thank me. If I find you cute, I find you cute." Chance shrugged his shoulders and turned the corner where the seats were and started walking up the stairs. There were already a good number of people already there either dressed in regular clothes or togas. The son of Fortuna came to the last row and sat where he usually did. "Now, you aren't jumpy are you or am I gonna have to old the popcorn?" He asked with a grin on his face.

he can't stop thinking about the fact that chance called him cute. the compliment settles, warm and heavy in his chest. he likes chance so much.

jaques smiles and laughs. he's been blushing almost non-stop since he first saw chance waiting for him outside the theater. "it might be best if you held the popcorn," he says with a laugh.

The son of Fortuna chuckled and took the popcorn from Jaques. He popped a few in mouths just as the pre-credits started rolling. After about another five minutes, the movie was starting.

About thirty minutes into the movie, Chance cleared his throat and wrapped his arm around Jaques shoulders. It was one of the moves he did often. He shifted in his seat so that he was closer to Jaques. "Are you cool with this?" He asked, looking down at Jaques and whispered in his ear, "This is okay for you?" Chance asked. He wanted to make sure he didn't spook him.

jaques had only bee absent mindedly watching the movie, really. it was interesting, but jaques had always been more interested in biographies and histories. those don't really make good first date material, though, and jaques doesn't really mind; it's still good.

the point is, he's not really paying much attention, and that's before chance wraps his arm over jaques' shoulders and shifts in his seat so they're closer together. his breath catches in his throat for what feels like the millionth time this night. he nods slowly, carefully, and whispers, "yes," softly, mostly out of instinct since he knows chance probably won't even be able to hear it. he cuddles in closer to chance, closing his eyes for a second and just appreciating the moment.


ooc: i went out to a movie tonight and definitely DID NOT spend the whole time imagining this Exact Scenario. bye.

OOC: Good because they're f*cking adorable rn

BIC: The son of Fortuna grinned and pressed his lips against the top of his head, but not kissing it. That was for later. Now, though, he held him, resting his temple against the top of the legacy of Justitia and Honos' head. After about an hour and some change, the movie was over. Chance almost fell asleep from how comfortable he was with Jaques.

"Hm, that was a good movie." He slowly pulled away from Jaques and stood up. The popcorn was a quarter of the way full. He stretched some and smiled widely at Jaques. "Ready for coffee?"

jaques has to keep himself from cuddling in closer to chance's side. for as much as he loves physical affection, jaques has always been fairly shy when it comes to actually doling it out. but he does trust chance, even though they haven't known each other long.

he's almost surprised when the movie ends, having gotten so comfortable curled up in chance's side. he hadn't been paying much attention to the screen, but from what little he grasped it seemed interesting and he nods in agreement. "coffee sounds lovely," he says after standing up, barely holding back a grin.

Chance grinned and gently took Jaques hand and led him out of the movie room, and eventually, out of the movie theater altogether. He looked over at Jaques and smiled.

"I really liked that movie, but I think I liked cuddling with you more." He winked playfully at Jaques. The Sun was on the verge of disappearing behind the horizon which went that the lights of New Rome would be turned on soon. "Hey, when we get our coffee, do you want to go for a walk around New Rome? I like how the lights and white marble and red roofs all work together, y'know?" He smiled a bit, stuffing his other hand into his pocket.

jaques blushes again, and he tilts his head down to hide his smile behind his hair. "i liked that too," he says softly. his heart is racing in his chest. jaques isn't sure he's ever been this happy before. he likes chance so much.

"a walk would be great," he says, and he lifts his head up to smile at chance through the fading sunlight. he bites down on his lower lip to try to tame it down some, but it doesn't really work. he's not used to being able to feel the wrinkles by the corners of his eyes from smiling.

Chance smiled and studied his face, then looked ahead at the street.

Soon, they were at a coffee shop in New Rome and walked inside at the sound of a bell. "I'll probably just get a grande caramel Frappuccino." Chance told Jaques with a grin. He moved away from the line and stood beside him so that he could still talk to him. "What type of movies do you usually watch? I think you told me docs and...historian-based genres, right?" He asked with a raised eyebrow.

"yeah," he says, smiling and nodding slightly as he steps into the line. "mostly documentaries, some war films and samurai movies." chance's hand is warm in his, and jaques feels almost like he could fly.

the line was blessedly short, and jaques gets to the counter in no time. he orders their drinks, the grande caramel frappuccino for chance and a grande iced green tea for himself. shortly after they're handed their drinks and heading off into the night.

Chance nodded his head. "That's interesting. I'm more of a action and adventure type of person. Like, I've seen all of the Fast and Furious movies." Chance cleared his throat and continued walking with Jaques.

The moon could be seen hanging in the night sky that brought a smile to his face. He sighed peacefully and looked back down at Jaques. "So, tell me about yourself, shawty, like, what do you like doing in your spar time?" He asked with a raised eyebrow. "Like, I know you like reading and stuff, but do you write any or...?" The son of Fortuna asked before taking a sip of his caramel frap.
