A Snazzy Title
Sat Apr 8, 2017 18:33

Spending time with Danny was helping Camilla realize that not every Pureblood person in the whole wide world was out to get her. The blonde had lived the past 7 years under the impression that “Decent People”, like her mom usually called them, weren't all buttheads with a big stick up their back. There were good people out there and Camilla was glad she had been lucky enough to befriend one of them. It was clear his parents had done a great job raising him, but despite how nice Danny was, he was still part of a world that Camilla just wasn't comfortable with or even fully understood. Ultimately, there was nothing wrong with enjoying Danny’s company.

The Ceti had no particular craving for food at the moment, so she just followed Danny´s lead towards a magical cafe. Her eyes looked around the establishment before sitting down and ordering their beverages and snacks - Camilla opted for a jasmine iced tea and some dried fruit. Her hazel-eyes focused on the small origami that flew away with their orders. The blonde was distractedly thinking about nothing in particular when Danny called on her attention.

Camilla looked at him, completely surprised by this question, blinked a few times, and visibly relaxed after being caught off guard.

“Hmm,” she started not sure how to address this. She wasn't embarrassed or insulted by the implication of this question, but she still didn't quite trust Danny to tell him exactly what she was feeling. She took a minute to think her answer.

Okay, here it was. “I just haven't liked someone that likes me back,” she answered as honestly as she could manage as a small shadow of sadness passed through her face as Elijah suddenly popped into her head. Actually, since Danny was friends with Elijah she felt their developing relationship had put some strain of awkwardness between them, especially since the three of them sometimes hung out. It was weird enough that Danny and her were making out with each other. The blonde wondered what Elijah thought about it, as he hadn't mentioned anything to her. A very big part of her wished he had reacted in some kind of way (read: She wished he was jealous).

“Plus, some people have avoided me after finding out who my father is,” she finished with a light shrug. Her parentage wasn't a Big Secret, and she had learned to somehow deal with it. She smiled at Danny trying to shrug off the big implication of her father’s sphere of influence. “But basically, no one has actually asked me to formally date,” their beverages appeared and Camilla took a sip of her tea. “More importantly, I'm not sure I want to date just anyone, really.” She finished hoping her small rambling was making any sense.

She casually put her cup down and started playing with it before looking at Danny, “Does it make any sense to you?” she asked before shifting her position in the chair. “What about you? You are a very attractive man, not to mention how amazing you are as a friend. Why aren't you dating anyone? Is it a Pureblood thing?” Camilla hoped she hadn't crossed a line with him.
