Boy, and wasn't she cheeky about it. Not that he minded; it was her right to privacy and all that, but her tone was surprisingly cheerful considering she was declining to tell him anything. She seemed to like the fact that her lifestyle and basic functioning were difficult for him to comprehend. At that point, Darrion realized he'd leaned in a little far, and he straightened his back as he clinked his near-empty beer bottle and said, "Well, you're an enigma, I'll give you that." Did nymphs appreciate hearing that? Humans were strange too, but there were so many of them around, it was easy to get used to them. Nymphs were less frequently on the radar.
The drake looked at her a while, trying to puzzle out what to make of that playful smile she gave him, and arched his eyebrow with the muted trace of a grin as he asked, "Any chance I'll see you again, Miss Secret?"
She didn't quite understand the term enigma, so she just laughed a little when he called her one. Was that a proper response? If she knew the term, it would be, and she hoped that it was. And then he asked if he'd see her again. She wasn't quite sure how to respond. Would it be to hasty to set up a date, or would that be normal? Maybe just a suggestion... but what tone of voice should she give it in? The whole experience was so new to her, it was bizarre.
"Well, the next time I work is next Wednesday. I get out at five if you want to meet then." She said, hoping she managed to not appear as flustered as she actually was.
Darrion had already started preparing in his head for some way to gracefully come back from a rejection, and he had to do a double take when he realized she hadn't brushed him off. Of course, there were some women who would accept, only to do the brushing off later -- which was okay; it was his fault for putting her on the spot -- but even if she was just going along with it for his sake, she was awful smooth about it, goddamn. His eyebrows had risen up to the ribbed hem of his hat, and he was smiling like a big dope. She was going to see him for the loser he was any minute. He quickly regained his composure, or at least tried to, pulling his smile back to a more reasonable size and thanking his lucky stars his skin was too dark for her to see his blush.
"Flower shop, right? Is it that family-owned one on the square? Ca-- uh, c-can I get your number?"
His reaction was so cute, he seemed so surprised that she agreed to see him again. He looks so cute when he smiles like that, Papina thought. She felt the blood rush to her face as she began to blush and she looked away. She managed to nod in agreement when he asked which florist she worked at, and then he asked for her number. The way he asked made her "squee" internally. How he stuttered and couldn't come up with words was so different from how composed he had been in the conversation up until that point. The only problem was that Papina didn't own a phone.
"The thing is, I don't actually own a cell phone." She admitted, "You can't really get much reception where I live" She joked and started biting her lip. She really didn't want it to seem like she was blowing him off by not giving him her number, which she was afraid he'd assume. If she had a cell phone, she'd willingly give him the number.
She didn't have a phone. Duh. She lived out in the woods. She was a nymph. "Oh. Heh. Sorry, I should have known, sorry--" He looked down and put a hand to his forehead, chuckling at himself. God, he was a numbskull.
"I'll just summon you with some chanting and fairy dust -- does that usually work?" He laughed again, although in the back of his mind he was wondering if something like that (not with fairy dust, obviously) would actually work. You never knew with nymphs.
Well, with that all settled, Darrion gave her a short upward nod and got ready to go. "See you at five, Wednesday, then. I should get home."
She laughed at the thing about fairy dust, though she'd never resort to using it. "We don't have anything like that, which I guess would make it pretty hard for communication..." She said. She never actually had friends that weren't nymphs of some sort, so communication was never really a problem.
"Yeah, I should probably leave too. I'll see you at five," She said, getting her bag from underneath the chair. On the way back she'd probably need to pick up something to eat, but there was a small grocery store on the way that would work. It was pretty dark outside. Perfect she thought. Oh well, once she got to the forest she'd be home free. She got to the door, looked back at Darrion, and waved as she left.

Hunter: Well hello Shatteredverse. And huh, that's strange, Azure. I'm not sure what that could be from.

Azurelle: Positive. I only use one password for these proboard accounts, and 2 usernames. Besides, it doesn't tell me I entered things wrong. It redirects me to the home page but I'm still not logged in.
