Eating Out

Post by Trinity Peters-Stenhouse  » Wed Aug 07, 2019 4:17 am

Trinity could feel his throat closing up. He couldn't do this. Ever since he and Lyssa had started dating--well, ever since Lyssa had told him that they were dating, he was constantly worried. He knew he wasn't good enough for her, so that wasn't something he worried about. Instead, he worried that others would see them and think the worst of Lyssa. They would think she had low standards and that would end up reflecting badly on the company.

He had learned, though, that people who were dating actually went on dates. Cana and Gabe went on them all the time, so he knew it was a regular occurrence. Lyssa deserved something regular in her life. So Trinity had set out and found a little hole in the wall Middle Eastern place where he was sure no one would recognize them. For one, they didn't even speak that much English!

Trinity was getting by of the little bit of language he was picking up and the bit of broken English the staff had. It was quite an interesting conversation. They were all extremely nice, but several of the waitresses in pretty outfits kept inviting him upstairs even after he had explained he was waiting for someone.

The large dining room was cover in rich colored cloth on the walls and low lighting gave it a twilight feel. The smell of spices reminded Trinity of Mrs. Havich's cooking. For a Muggle place, it had an extremely magical feel to it. He quite liked it.

Lyssa knew Trinity had somewhat eclectic tastes, so she hadn't been particularly surprised when he'd invited her to a small, Middle Eastern bistro. It had taken her rather a bit to find parking, and as she walked through the neighborhood, she realized it probably wasn't the safest. Trinity's naive confidence had probably shielded him well though, just as Lyssa's resting...well, "witch" face was now protecting her as well. The few men who had the temerity to say things which sounded suggestive in other languages, soon found themselves at the receiving end of the iciest, most terrifying stare of their lives, and quickly shut up. Lyssa considered it almost a form of wandless magic, and was rather proud of herself.

As she entered the restaurant, however, something seemed...off. It had the normal downstairs of a combination hookah lounge and restaurant, but the waitresses were being rather...affectionate, and--

Oh.

Oh sweet, naive Trinity.

Lyssa hid a smile, straightened the small bolero jacket she was wearing, and went to sit by her boyfriend. He looked sweetly oblivious of the women staring and whispering at them. Lyssa wasn't though, and couldn't hide a little grin.

"Hey, sweetie," she cooed. "It took me forever to find this place. Sorry for running a little late! I hope you've been okay without me," she smiled and leaned in to kiss him on the cheek. She heard a few light, tittering laughs from the staircase, and couldn't help but smiled a bit. All of this, and he still only had eyes for her. Gods, she loved him so much.

Trinity grinned when he saw Lyssa and waved her over. When she kissed him on the cheek, his whole face turned as red as the velvet cushion he was sitting on. To him, it was still very much a thing only married couples did--and not in public. Of course, they had kissed a few times. And the other couples he was friends with kissed without being married. From what Trinity had gathered, Cana and Gabe did other marriage-things, too. He was sure his face was even redder now, if possible.

Clearing his throat, Trinity looked up at her. That didn't help. Her red dress fit her perfectly. He felt his eyes be drawn to the curves of her body and--yep, definitely redder. He took a sip of water and forced himself to meet her eyes. She was so pretty. He didn't know how he would survive the upcoming school year without her. But he would. A year ago, he would never have thought it possible to be excited for school to end. Now he had something to look forward to.

"You look amazing," the blond said softly, taking Lyssa's hand. "I've been okay. Everyone is very nice." He grinned over at one of the waitresses. "This is the girlfriend I was telling you about. Isn't she pretty?"

The woman gave Lyssa a knowing look as she poured a glass of water. "Very pretty. You order?"
