The meet cute
1. How did you meet?
♥ It almost seemed like you might have seen them in a dream before. And when your paths finally crossed, everything suddenly felt right. Almost as if for the first time in your life, the world around you finally made sense. The secret smile tucked in a corner of their mouth, the brush of their hand across yours… Everything about them felt familiar and new at the same time. Meeting them felt almost like a homecoming. One you had been waiting for your whole life.
♣ You were out demon hunting, as you do, when you stumbled across each other. You might have taken them for another opponent had you not noticed the blade they carried, right before they slashed it across the demon that was making for your exposed back. A moment later, with the dust from the slain demons settling around you, you turned to each other. Your gazes crossed and although neither of you knew it yet, your lives was about to change forever.
♦ The city guards were almost upon you when a hand reached out from the shadows and pulled you inside an alcove that you had not noticed earlier. “I know you who are and I have a job proposition for you. If you do this for me, you’ll be under the protection of my crew. There might even be a hefty reward in it for you as well”. Confused but intrigued, you asked, “And who might you be?”. A slow, arrogant smile and then the smell of gunpowder as the stranger drew closer. “I only need to raise my voice for these guards to find our little hiding place. So, what will it be stranger? A prison cell among the city’s finest, or a little bit of adventure and the promise of freedom?”
It’s time for your date…
2. What are you wearing for the date?
♣ Something nice but casual. You’re also wearing your favorite pair of boots. The ones that go well with all your outfits, and are also perfect should the need arise to go on the impromptu chase across the city. I mean, in your city, anything is possible really.
♦ You’re wearing something comforting and familiar. With lots and lots of secret pockets. And cleverly concealed straps. After all, just because you’re showing up armed to the teeth doesn’t mean that your date actually needs to know that.
♥ Something you bought specially for the occasion. With silver embroidery along the hems and a trail of sparkling gems around the cuffs.
3. Your date brought you a gift. What is it?
♦ Something special or exotic that you found on one of your travels. A piece of jewelry with intriguing engravings, or a poem written by a foreign writer.
♥You open a beautiful satin lined box to reveal a pair of silver cuffs or earrings, embedded with the most delicate of glittering crystals.
♣ Something precious to them that they wanted you to have. Like a special flower, or a particularly beautiful piece of sea glass.
4. What activity have you planned for your special day?
♥ An evening of music and dancing inside a ballroom that shines with the lights of hundreds of candles. Hand in hand, you glide across the room to the music of the live orchestra, your eyes pined on each other as you tell each other silent stories and steal secrets from each other’s gaze.
♦ You decide to go on a walk by the riverside. Suddenly, you spot a small boat docked not too far away. The air is warm, with the softest of breezes blowing around you. You look at your date and spot a twinkle of mischief dancing in their eyes. Since no one else seems to be around, you quickly sneak into the boat, stifling your laughs as you untie the ropes mooring it to the dock. By the time someone begins to shout after you, you are already rowing down the river, your laughter echoing in your wake.
♣ You decide to go stargazing from the hilltops. With the stars shining above you, and the city lights glistening far below, it feels a bit like you’ve slipped into some Faerie world, somewhere between one reality and another.
5. The date is going well so far and you find yourself enjoying your conversation with your date. What do you bond over?
♣ A surprisingly common passion for antique weapons. They tell you about a sword that’s been in their family for generations and you’re secretly overjoyed when they suggest you come a see it for yourself sometime.
♦ Your common passion for the sea. You both dream of sailing away in a ship of your own, chasing quests and adventures all over the world.
♥ Dreams. You both soon realize that in each other you have found a fellow dreamer and before you know it, the minutes begin to fade to hours.
Time to eat!
6. Where do you go?
♥ You invite your date to the fanciest restaurant in town, a place as secluded as it is enchanting, and get a table outside, where you can both enjoy the smell of sweet jasmine and the sparkle of the distant stars as you continue your sharing dreams with each other.
♣ You invite them to your favorite food place in the city centre. You come here often and know it’ll be easier for you to open up to them if you’re somewhere that feels comfortable and familiar.
♦ You’ve packed a picnic. You find a beautiful spot by a quiet river and eat in the shade of the trees.
7. What are you having?
♥ You order a seven course meal full of your special one’s favorite dishes. And laugh at their horrified expression as the waiters pile up plate and plate around you, because you know your date will probably end up finishing everything anyway.
♦ Although you tell your date that putting together your picnic was no big deal, you are secretly overjoyed when they marvel at the different treats you woke up at dawn to prepare. Afterwards, your date mentions that perhaps next time they could be the one to prepare something for you. You smile, the prospect of another date filling your heart with unexpected happiness.
♣ You order your usual favorite meal but barely pay any attention to it. You’re too caught up by your date’s voice, and those little smiles of theirs that make your heart leap every time.
You had a great time but now your date is coming to an end…
8. How does your date end?
♥ You realize there is nowhere you’d rather be right now than with them. You invite them to your place. And after pressing a soft kiss to your cheek, your date says yes.
♣ You decide to go for a long walk by the moonlight. The night is cool and quiet. The wind plays with your hair and you find yourself constantly pushing it back. Suddenly, their hand is there, gentle tucking a stay lock behind your ear. As you glance up, you can’t help but blush a little. You kiss, and promise to see each other again soon before parting away for the night.
♦ You make no promises and exchange no sweet nothings. You don’t need to. Their smile is enough for you to know that you will be seeing each other soon.
