Demitri de Frère
Prince Charming anyone?
Sun Dec 15, 2013 00:39

Demitri grimaced as he dug about in his stuff, looking for the one set of clothes that he didn’t want to use. On his home island, they didn’t celebrate things such as “Halloween” or any other holidays that the rest of the world apparently celebrated. He wouldn’t have known they celebrated it at all had flyers for a “Halloween Dance” not gone up a few weeks prior to the date of the event. The dance part had appealed to the Aquila, but he had no idea what the other part meant. At the time it hadn’t mattered to him, he only had one thing on his mind.

It had taken him nearly a week and a half to get over his nerves, but he’d finally managed with enough time to spare. It hadn’t been very easy for the fifteen year old to approach Olivia, he’d been so nervous that he’d kept his hands stuffed into pockets to keep them from shaking. They’d been shaking before that of course, but as he’d gone to ask the Draco girl to go to the dance with him, the tremors had become visibly worse. He’d tried to give himself a peptalk, but all the confidence he had around the nobles back on Isle de Frère failed him whenever he was near Olivia.

When he had finally spoken to her, the words had come out in an unintelligent slur of words. He had meant to ask her eloquently, but his nerves got the better of him. Thankfully however, Olivia had understood what he had said and after a few nerve-wracking seconds, she said she’d love to go with him. The Aquila felt any anxiety he had felt melt away before his face lit up with a smile. He had turned away before he remembered something that he had forgotten. He scratched his head and faced the girl once more.

Demitri tried to put it simply, as to avoid any suspicion, that he had never celebrated Halloween before and therefore didn’t know what it was about. He had no doubt that Olivia, as brilliant as she was, could enlighten him on the subject. She had explained it in the terms that it was something muggle kids liked to dress up in costumes for and they would go to their neighbors' houses and get candy. She had also mentioned something about “trick or treating” but Demitri didn’t really understand the concept.

The thing that had been emphasized most was the costumes. The Aquila knew what costumes were, but he had never had cause to acquire one. In fact he had been completely unsure of what to wear to the dance and so he had asked Olivia for help on the matter. Much to his amusement, she had told him that he would make an excellent “prince charming”. Without saying anything else, Demitri had smirked and nodded. That was how he found himself digging into the bottom of his stuff and pulling out what he had first worn when leaving his home.

He had shoved the ​royal clothing deep into his things, hoping to not have to use them again. Due to the circumstances however, the princeling thought it appropriate to use what he had. Dressed in the fine clothing, Demitri slicked back his hair with some gel like he would have at home. He checked his reflection once, internally shuddering at the person he saw there.

When he finally reached the Rec Center, severally people were already gathered for the dance. He walked in and weaved through the people, scanning the crowd to see if his date had already arrived. When an initial search of the dance floor and surrounding areas had turned up useless, the Aquila moved to the entrance of the place. He leaned against a wall and fiddled with his ring, watching as the gold and red colors flashed. The next time his head lifted, a grin broke out on his face as he saw Olivia walking towards him. He straightened up and walked towards her, focusing on his breathing as he did so. He reached out and took her hand, bowing and brushing a kiss over her knuckles before greeting her.

“Good Evening Olivia,” he said, meeting her eyes as he continued smiling. “I-uh… It’s really nice to see you.”

OOC Note: Godmodding of Olivia (her approaching Demitri) approved by her author.

                    Berating sentiments plagued Olivia's mind; how could she be so uncoordinated? And she was wearing heels , so that definitely did not feel pleasant on Demitri's poor foot. He had been so kind, either... more

                            Inevitably and unsurprisingly, Olivia had screwed everything up. She knew she had done it when he stepped away. His touch suddenly absent, she felt as alone as she had ever been. It was solitude in a ... more

                              “No, please!” Brown eyes closed and shoulders slumped ever so slightly at the words spoken beseechingly by the girl. A hand caught his own, and he turned around to meet the brown eyes. Demitri felt... more
