Once Upon a Dream [closed, Mika/Hunter, eve. mid week]
« on: January 16, 2013, 02:49:51 pm »
The quiet dinner club in the Market had been re-built, as it brought in both tourists and revenue, keeping the economy of the island afloat. He'd sent a an invitation to Mika, old fashioned in a charming sort of way. The vellum was heavy and seemed old, the calligraphy neat and detailing a gentleman's wish to escort her on a date. A time given, 6:00 in the evening, and a request to be allowed to pick her up at her dorm accompany this. She is advised that a dress code is in place at their destination.

A box accompanies the invitation, on the flatter side, and a bit long, it's no difficult guess that this is jewelry of some sort. When opened, ivory pearls are revealed, simple and antique. The clasp is very ornate and shows their age clearly. The note inside says, very simply, 'Please bring this along with you.' The individual that delivers this message to Mika informs her that he was instructed to await a return message either accepting or denying.

Look:



- I'd give up forever to touch you, cuz I know that you feel me somehow. You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be, and I don't wanna go home right now. All I can taste is this moment, and all I can breathe is your life...I don't want the world to see me, cuz I don't think that they'd understand. When everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am.-

-I will be the answer at the end of the line. I wil be there for you while you take the time. In the burning of uncertainty, I will be the solid ground. I will hold the balance if you can't look down. If it takes my whole life, I won't break, I won't bend. It'll all be worth it, worth it in the end. I can only tell you what I know, that I need you in my life. When the stars have all gone out, you'll still be burning so bright.-

-The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out since you left me in the dark. No dawn, no day, I'm always in the twilight, in the shadow of your heart. And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat. I tried to find the sound. But then, it stopped, and I was in the darkness, so darkness, I became. I took the stars from my eyes and then, I made a map. I knew that somehow, I could find my way back. I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too. So, I stayed in the darkness with you.-

Mika read the invitation as a smile played across her lips.  Holding the box delicately in her hand, her fingers trace over the pearls.  She quickly grabs her favorite stationary, and writes her answer with a delicate hand, fine script, an answer of acceptance to send back to him.

Once the answer has been given and the return message sent along, she turns to her closet to find something appropriate for the dress code.  Most of her closet being black she goes back and forth between an understated but elegant black dress, and one of a deep plum color.  Finally settling on a dress, she went about finishing up her preparation.  A soft purple smokey eye was the focal point of the make up with accents of silver. Finally a light gloss on the lips.  Her hair gathered and curled, held off one shoulder with soft curls cascading down the other.  Taking a last glance, hoping that it would be looked at with a smile, she looked at the clock and made sure she was ready for when her date would arrive.

Swallow me under and pull me apart
I understand, there's nothing left
Pain so familiar and close to the heart
No more, no less, I won't forget

I thought you said forever over and over
this sleepless night becomes, bitter oblivion
these thoughts run through my head, over and over
complaints of violins... become my only friends"

Hunter arrived, looking a bit like this, in the same cool greys and blacks. His cuff links are clearly antique, perhaps even belonging to his father. The intricate working matches the clasp upon the pearls. He's clean shaven and smells faintly of that sandelwood and cedar scent she'd come to associate with him. He knocks on the door firmly, and stands with his hands behind his back, hair tamed for the evening. The healthy tan of his face is only heightened by the dove grey collar.

He's managing to not look overly nervous or anxious despite certainly feeling that way. He carries a bouquet of flowers in his hands consisting of creamy ivory oleander, Angelwing jasmine, and noticeably three ivory rosebuds and one deep purple rosebud that had an almost burgundy sheen upon it, yet still managed to remain that royal shade. The ferns and baby's breath are spare and tasteful, and the stems have been wrapped in a white silk. He had one more bloom in their conveyance, but he wasn't yet sure about giving that one.

Mika heard the knock at the door and her heart fluttered for a moment.  Doing one last glance over her appearance, she smooths out her dress and takes a breath.  A small clutch sits on her bed next to the box that had accompanied the invitation.  Picking both up she headed to the door.  Calming her nerves for a second she opens the door to see Hunter on the other side.  She takes in his appearance, a bright smile spreading across her face as she caught the whiff of sandalwood and cedar. Brushing a loose curl back behind her ear her sparkling silver eyes finding his.   "Good evening Hunter.  You look dashing."

He gave a courtly bow to her as she spoke, a crooked smile flashing over his mouth briefly, his hand coming forth to present the bouquet to her. "And you're breathtaking. Do you have a cloak or coat you'd like my assistance with? And would you like to wear those pearls?" He asked, the last question coming forth somewhat shyly.

A smile crossed her lips as he bowed and gave her the bouquet, blushing slightly at his complement.  .  Taking the flowers her eyes lit up.  Holding them close so that she could take in their scent.  The unique arrangement caught her eye.  "These are beautiful."  At his questions she nodded, a long dark peacoat hung next to the door.  "I would love to wear the pearls Hunter."

He stood straight, stepping forward. "Bring them with you. They are meant to keep well until tomorrow, when they will have to be placed in water, like any other bouquet. Tonight though, they will remain in their state of lovely perfection. As will you in memory." His hands, an artist's sensitive ones, took the jeweler's box of pearls from her.

Stepping behind her, those fingers slid the hair from her nape, brushing her skin lightly. The pearls settled cool and smooth, encircling her neck. Hunter lightly kissed the top of her head, before reaching past to grab the peacoat that hung. Offered so to her, he waited for Mika to step into it, then settled it fully about her. Waiting for the door to be shut, and her things to be gathered, he offered his arm to escort her. "Shall we, little angel?"

She let her nose linger in the bouquet a moment longer, almost as if memorizing the unique arrangement of scents.  She smiled as he told her to bring them with her, and blushed lightly at the complement.  "I will do that then"

As his fingers brushed her skin her breath caught lightly.  Her fingers brushed over the pearls lightly, a smile settling on her lips.  She stepped into the coat and gathered her things, before taking his arm.  She squeezed his arm softly, slight nerves coupled with excitement bubbling in her.  "Of course, lets go."

Hunter led her to the car, opening her door for her, and handing her into the seat. The vehicle was a well cared for black luxury car, the interior spotless and carrying the scent of some spice or another. It was also quietly purring as it ran, and the inside was warm and comfortable. He waited until she was settled, closing her door behind her. Moving to the driver's side, he slid into the seat as if it had been made for him.

After waiting for her seatbelt to be fastened, and doing so with his own, his hands settled themselves, first sliding the stickshift into gear. Soft strings poured from the quiet speakers, to be joined by a weeping piano, as well. "How was your day today, little angel?" He asked, his green eyes moving to her briefly before they settled back on the road ahead of them. The huntsman's hands moved with an economy of motion and experience, though who knew where he'd learned to drive a stickshift.

When Mika saw the car her eyes widened ever so slightly.  As he held her door and helped her into the car, she couldn't help but smile.  She knew that he was chivalrous, but sometimes it still took her by surprise.  As he settled into the car as well she quickly took in the surroundings, letting her mind wander briefly though the strings that played, striking familiar tones.  Still holding the bouquet, she couldn't help but hum along with a few of the notes as he got settled.

As he shifted the car into gear, she wondered briefly when and how he had learned to drive.  However she knew never to underestimate what he knew.  Her eyes shone with a light smile at the question.  "My day was fine.  I will admit, I was probably lost in my Violin for a few hours.  I know I lose track of time when I play."  She admitted with a soft smile.  Her day had been made at his invitation.

A wry smile curved his mouth at her words. "Lost, my angel, is an understatement. Have you been playing your sad pieces again, or did you find something to inspire the brighter sounds your violin can make?" They stopped at a red light, his green eyes moving to her for her answer. He casually picked up one of her more delicate hands, and kissed the palm before placing it back in her lap, and settling in to drive once again.

An almost sheepish smile settled over her lips.  "Okay, so I end up in a completely other world when I play.  I believe the strings and I have been making our way around the brighter, happier tones that they can make.  It's been a nice change, the timbre of my violin is almost as if it has changed."  She blushed lightly as he kissed her palm.
