Zane
"Water. Oh god, water." Zane stumbled about the evening streets of Hargeon, completely worn out as he approached the coastline. The people on this downtown shopping block seemed awfully weirded out by Zane. Bearing a pair of swim trunks and a simple t-shirt it looked as though the man was simply preparing to go for an evening dip in the ocean, but his face told a different story. His face told the story of a man who had just ran at top speed for 7 minutes, changed into swim trunks for 2 minutes and then had been running for another 7 minutes at a speed that was somehow even higher than his initial one. Perhaps the people of Hargeon were a perfect example of the bystander effect. All of them felt as though they should help, but none of them did. They all had a feeling that SOMEONE would give him water. Why give the poor man a drink if someone else was almost definitely going to do it anyways? But nobody did. Zane went through that whole block crying for the sweet embrace of mother H20...

All he had to do was pass through one park to get to the meeting place he had set up for him and Atani: a pier that was right next to a great beach. But Zane had something to worry about before he could begin to think about Atani. He felt like he was going to die. Would he even live to see that pier? Perhaps he'd die the moment he set foot there? And that was when he saw it. Like the glow of Illumin himself the park water fountain glistened in the corner of his eye, its holy juices just waiting to be taken from its metal exterior. Stumbling over to the fountain, Zane's hands gripped it with more intensity than a man who had just found the fountain of youth. Zane was saved.

A few minutes later Zane found himself leaning against the railing of the pier meeting spot, the wind blowing his blonde hair elegantly as he waited for Atani. His face seemed different from earlier. Whereas before he had come off as a beaten man on the verge of death, now he was without a doubt a confident, healthy and amazing young man ready for a date at the beach. A wide smile came upon his lips. "That's the power of H20."

To this day historians never did find out what compelled Zane to say that out loud while nobody was watching. Actually, wait. If nobody was watching then how did historians figure that out anyways?

"I'm really doing this, huh," Atani mumbled to herself in her native tongue while getting ready for the second part of her date with Zane. She stripped off her blue dress and exchanged it for a white bikini. It had thin straps along both the top and bottom pieces. A bit too revealing to walk around Hargeon in for her taste, so the elf put on a beach wrap as well to give herself a little more modesty, at least until she arrived at the beach. After brushing her hair once more, she looked at the clock. Ten minutes till she had to meet Zane back at the pier, perfect timing.

Atani didn't live too far from the pier. She sped walked through a few parts of town, but was able to slow down and compose herself as she drew closer to her meeting point with Zane. Before rounding the corner to see him again, she paused to flatten the creases in her cover and ran her fingers through her hair as if combing any imperfections. Feeling prepared, she want to meet him.

The blonde haired man leaned against the rail that overlooked the pier.

"That's the power of H2O."

"The power of... water? I didn't think we'd be drinking much of that tonight."

She smirked as she approached the man. She didn't know what Zane was on about, but she hoped their night would be a little more fun than just that.

Zane
Zane was startled to think Atani would show up at the just the right time to hear him talking to himself, his body noticeably shifting as he turned her way. "Ah! You heard me say that?" Zane asked, nervously chuckling. At least it didn't seem like she thought of him as crazy - yet, anyways. "By that I mean that H20 has the power to... err... bring us together. Though... travel?" Off to a strong start. Still, Zane could roll with it. Very boldly grabbing onto Atani's left hand, Zane brought himself beside her (though just a bit in front of her) and began leading her to the beach while continuing on with his rant about water. "Not to mention that our bodies are like, 60% water or something. Or was it 70? Or 80? Something around there." Zane smiled down at Atani with a confident grin, almost as though he expected her to be impressed with his extremely elementary understanding of science.

Zane led Atani down a flight of stairs, their feet finally embracing the sand of the beach. Some grains managed to get into Zane's sandals. He couldn't complain about this, honestly. Felt pretty nice on his feet. Slowly making his way up closer to the water, Zane noted that the beach was about as quiet as he expected given both the time of day and the day of the week. To the right there was a tiki bar where most of the people here were spending their time. To the center (and left) there was a huge stretch of beach, most of it unused save for some people that were far off in the distance. The beach was quite wide as well. It would most likely take the pair at least 2 minutes just to get to the water. Zane's hand gripped Atani's just a little bit tighter, his manner seeming rather hasty. "I wanna get to the beach soon, the tide's at just the right level. Not to mention it'll get cold soon. There's also the ulterior motive I have of seeing you without that beach wrap as soon as possible." There was also the ulterior motive Zane had of seeing her without th- wait. Zane's inner monologue had accidentally just poured out. His face turning a bit red, Zane stopped in his tracks, facing towards Atani. He had to think of an excuse. He had to think of a way to save it. "You know what? I'm not gonna make an excuse for that one." He confidently said, hoping his date would just find it charming. Or just forget about it. Definitely the latter. That would be the best outcome.

Having resumed walking, the two finally made their way to the water. Zane slowly stepped up towards the small bit that rested at the sand's edge. "These always were the best beaches in Fiore. Even the ones in Astera don't compete." While this obviously wasn't known to Atani, Zane had spent years exploring nooks and crannies in Fiore. If he said a town was the best place for beaches in Fiore he was most likely objectively right. Zane slipped out of his sandals by way of utilizing only his feet, eventually letting them rest on the sand. Then he took a step into the water, feeling how cool it was. "Ahhh, see? That's the power of H20. So, which one of us is gonna jump in first?" Zane had to admit he hoped he didn't have to do it first. As nice as the water felt on his feet it was quite cold.

"You were right the first time." She paused. "Well, for the most part. Men are closer to 60% than women. We're a little closer to 55% if you want to be technical."

It was some simple biological knowledge she had picked up on while studying healing magic in Athalran. It did not have many practical uses that she could think of off the top of her head, but a healer had to have general knowledge on how the human body functioned. Or at least, they should.

She stepped down the wooden stairs with Zane. Their fingers laced together, Atani slipped off her flip flops with her free hand and let them dangle loosely, swinging gently as they walked on the warm sand. The soft grains felt nice between her toes. Skin against natural earth in any form let the elf feel grounded.

Zane squeezed Atani's hand ever so tighter, just as he frequently did when he was about to say something. As the trend went, words did follow his grip, words that left Atani with smirk across her face.

"Oh, do you now?" she teased. Zane's face gained a tinge of red. He said he wouldn't make an excuse for that statement to which Atani simply giggled in reply. She at least respected that he wouldn't. Making excuses could only work for so long. For Atani, she was never patient for those sorts of things.

Their conversation transitioned to Zane mentioning the beaches of Astera. From what she had heard of the beautiful town, she was surprised they weren't up to par with Hargeon. "So let's see... Orchidia, Crocus, and now Astera? You've been all over Fiore, haven't you."

Atani was jealous. She admittedly hadn't been in Fiore long, but that was all the more reason to have such strong wanderlust. Anyone who had the opportunity to fill that desire she was envious of.

As the two came closer to the water, Atani set her flip flops down. She took off her beach wrap and placed it by her shoes. Cool water lapped over her bare feet. It felt good after walking on all that dry sand. Zane asked who would jump in the water first.

"What, we're not getting in together?" She tugged on his hand as she stepped further into the water. "Come on, it'll feel nice."

Zane
"Wait, really?" Zane asked, astounded at the idea that females were made up of slightly less water than males were. He'd imagine it was probably at least a somewhat obscure fact. Maybe Atani was even smarter than he thought she was? He supposed she did read a lot of books. "Hah. I have more water than you." Zane triumphantly said in a somewhat humorous matter, yet also straightening his chest a little as if he was somehow unironically proud of the fact.

Atani seemed to react pretty well to Zane's personality, at least from his point of view. When he so plainly stated his desire to look at her she giggled. When he talked about the different places he had been in Fiore she seemed genuinely impressed. Zane couldn't help but feel an odd sensation in his chest. He had always wanted everyone to admire him and think of him as a super cool guy, but rarely would anyone actually admit it. For some reason or another Zane got the feeling that Atani genuinely thought he was pretty cool. Was this finally it? Did Zane finally land himself an admirer? A fan? His smile grew just a little bit bigger as he imagined it, his mind already getting lost in the rampant delusions of having someone think he was the coolest guy out there. It was pretty common of Zane's imagination to make a mountain of every molehill it was presented with.

"Huh?" Zane asked, seeing Atani tug on his hand a little bit, wanting to go in the water with him. A blush came upon his face as he realized that he would have to have his own date drag him into the water. "Oh, of course! It would be pretty lame of me if I was afraid of a little bit of cold saltwater, haha." Zane remarked with a nervous look on his face, stepping forward to once again be just slightly ahead of Atani. It definitely seemed like he preferred being in the lead here. The seawater eventually went further up Zane's legs as he stepped in, its cold feeling being a bit unsettling at first. The water did eventually get more comfortable as he continued leading the two deeper in, the tide becoming less and less shallow as he went on. It was at his knees now, the water just starting to touch onto his swim trunks.

"Oh, one sec." Zane's hand moved away from Atani's for the first time in a little while, his fingers moving to the bottom of his shirt as he began lifting it off his body. He tossed the shirt backwards once it was completely off, hoping the wind would take it to the dry part of the beach so that it wouldn't get wet - thankfully it did manage to avoid the water, though the shirt definitely drifted further away than Zane would like, only stopping once it had landed on a nearby sandcastle. Looking in Atani's direction once again, Zane hoped to find her ogling him or something of the like. "Alright, I'll let you stare for 10 more seconds." Zane would remark whether she was actually staring or not. Thankfully he had managed to exercise way more recently - if Atani had met Zane back in January she would most likely be looking at a much more flabby chest. Zane could thank Beelzebub for that, the demon having made sure to work Zane out for the purpose of "strength for acquiring everything" or something like that.

"Bzzt! Time's up." It had actually been 12 seconds. Zane wasn't the best at timing seconds. "See you in there." Zane's entire body leaned towards the side, his frame plummeting into the shallow water. He didn't immediately realize that he wouldn't have much space, but his shoulders bumping up against the sand soon showed him that. Thankfully it was enough to cover him from shoulder to shoulder, his arms quickly propelling forward in a stroke to get him to a deeper part of the beach - which thankfully wasn't too far away. Once Zane confirmed it was deep enough so that his feet no longer touched the sand he'd switch to a backfloat, tilting his head a bit to see just where Atani was now.

As opposed to Atani pulling Zane deeper in the water, the blonde man took the lead instead. She didn't mind it at all so long as they finally could fully submerge into the cool waves. It was strange. Atani was never much of a water person until she unlocked her new hydro abilities. Now, she couldn't seem to get enough of it. Even her showers took longer than they did in the past.

"Hmm?" Atani asked as Zane's hand slipped free from hers. Even though the air was far from cold, a chill hit her palm from the sudden absence of skin-to-skin warmth. She let her hand fall to her side and slip into the ocean water. The elf looked to Zane as he stripped off his shirt, revealing a well-defined chest.

"Alright, I'll let you stare for 10 more seconds."

"Ha, right." She rolled her eyes jokingly. She folded her arms across her chest and averted her gaze. Zane, of course, commented on that gesture. With a light chuckle and shake of her head, she looked back to him. Once those ten or so seconds had passed, he fell into the water. Atani held her breath and ducked her head underwater to drench her body. She opened her eyes and parted the water just in front with her magic so she would be able to see without getting stung by the saltwater. After, she poked her head out to see Zane floating on his back.

"Want to see something?" she asked. It was more of a rhetorical question, for regardless of his answer, she would raise her hands above the water. A stream of water would arc above him as he floated on his back, little sections glowing here and there against the dimming sky as if fireflies were swimming through the water. "Cool, right?"

"Well, what I want to see is already subme-" Zane's comment was brought to a sudden halt as his eyes widened in amazement in what Atani had to show him, their blue color brought out even more by the water they were currently in. A look of wonder went upon his face for the second time that night, Atani having once again brought out that side of him that was usually buried deep in the constant acts he put on. "Woooah!" He excited exclaimed, especially impressed by the little firefly-like lights that Atani had put in the arc. Zane put up one of his fingers to feel the arc, watching the water move around his touch. "You must use water magic then, right? I always wished I ended up learning it. You can do so many cool tricks. With wind the best you can do is use a breeze to flip ski- err, mess up people's hair." Neither one was a particularly nice gesture. Zane couldn't even do that these days unfortunately: Beelzebub's magic required him to transform before doing anything like that and transforming wasn't exactly the most enjoyable of experiences.

Zane's backfloat was soon enough switched to him wading in the water so that he could better meet eyes with Atani. Looking her way while doing a backfloat was more than possible but certainly required putting the neck in a less than comfortable position. "You must be an excellent swimmer then, right?" Zane assumed that most water mages were probably fond enough of the water itself to know how to swim well, though Zane supposed he was a wind mage and didn't exactly enjoy sky diving. "If so, I have a proposal. See that buoy over there?" Zane turned around and pointed his left hand towards a red buoy that was floating at what was essentially the limits of the swimming zone. It would probably take even the best of swimmers at least a minute to get over there from their distance. "Let's race over there. The loser can get the honor of paying for the drinks at the tiki bar over on the beach. Interested?" Zane asked, turning back to face Atani with a smirk on his face. "I'll most likely win obviously, but I think you might have a small chance. But don't expect me to go easy on you just because this is a date!" Zane actually did intend on going easy on her because it was a date, and that was after his extreme overestimation of his own swimming abilities. He knew how to swim, but not quite as good as he was currently thinking. "What do you say?"

"Hey, wind is still pretty cool." Even if one of the things Zane had in mind for its use was rather... immature. It was one of the elements the elves were able to control, albeit slightly more uncommon. It had several uses, and its gales could be quite a force to reckon with in combat. It just simply was not as flashy as most.

Zane righted himself and began to tread water with her. Atani dispelled her stream and listened to what he had to say. He assumed that she was a good swimmer, to which Atani replied with an uncertain shrug. Though she was indeed a water mage, she was still an elf, and the fact of the matter was elves rarely swam for fun. They did not typically colonize near beaches. There were plenty of woodland creeks where she was from, but those were often rather shallow. As much as she, a hydromancer, hated to admit it, swimming was not her forte. But, she would still try her best to win in the race. Atani did not want to be the one to buy drinks that night.

"You're on," she said as she swam into position next to Zane. "On go, alright? 3... 2... 1..." She paused for extra emphasis. "Go!"

Atani was half tempted to use her water magic to propel her through the water-- she would have needed it-- but that wouldn't have been fair. Instead, she tried to swim as fast as she was physically able, but ultimately when she reached the buoy, it appeared Zane had reached it first.

"Damn, you're fast. Good race." One hand gripping onto the buoy, she held the other out as a friendly gesture. "Don't order anything too expensive, got it?"

Zane
Zane thrusted his arm forward on Atani's count as their race began, his brain and his body still unsure about just how much effort he should be putting into this. On one hand he didn't want to pay for drinks, but on the other hand the idea of being a gentleman and paying for Atani also felt nice - and by felt nice Zane meant it would probably make her like him more. Maybe. As Zane's arms propelled himself forward into the water two small balls of light appeared to him in his mind, his eyes currently closed as not to get any water in his eye. One was black while the other was white. The black ball bore a pair of menacing fangs while a holy halo floated above the white one's. "Zane, be a kind spirit. Let Atani win." The presumably holy ball remarked, Zane finding himself rather convinced thanks to its soothing voice.

"Hah! Don't be such a fool. If you win you won't have to pay for anything and you'll probably still go h-" The evil ball was soon interrupted by Zane. "Excuse me?" Zane asked, unable to understand anything the evil ball was saying. "Can't you hear me?" It asked, the holy ball laughing towards its opposite in a manner that was oddly similar to that of an old rich woman cackling. "Ha! This buffoon forgot to pick a text color that was readable."

"N-no I didn't!" The evil ball stuttered, embarrassed to the point where some shades of red could be seen within its sphere. "I just... was testing you." Zane groaned. Why did all of his crazy person inner monologues have to be so out there? "Look, just give me the closing arguments already. I've wasted enough time as is." The holy ball immediately stepped up to the proverbial plate to offer its take on the matter first. "Zane. Think about Atani's feelings. She's a water mage, is she not? It would not bode well for her self confidence if she lost to you in a race. You'd be saving her wallet a fair bit of grief as well."

Zane figuratively turned to the evil ball, waiting for it to give him its take. "Think about it. Going all out means that you don't have to pay. Not only that, but you also get to impress Atani with your cool, amazing, perfect, brilliant, honed, graceful, intelligent swimming skills - thus making her want you more." Zane immediately felt pretty convinced by the evil ball's little speech, deciding right away he'd go with it. The holy ball attempted to protest as Zane began to leave this odd mind space he had found himself in. "W-Wait! No fair! Evil ball only won because he threw out a bunch of positive adject-"

The balls faded from existence as Zane's speed suddenly tripled, putting in his full effort in the second half of the race. In a way it was somewhat inspiring. Zane didn't even know he could swim this fast, yet the promise of free drinks and leaving a girl impressed somehow managed to break his limits. Kicking his feet as though he would die if he didn't reach their target first, Zane swam and swam before he eventually found his hand landing onto the buoy, grabbing onto its rail and clinging on its side as he caught his breath. He was surprised he managed to win when he opened his eyes to find Atani arriving after him.

Clearly exhausted, Zane gave Atani a tired handshake as he attempted to recuperate himself. "I'll make sure to order juuuust enough to make sure we don't get to the point where you no longer like me as much as you currently do." Zane responded in a humorous tone. The plot twist was that he wasn't joking. His mind was actually already going through intense calculations to figure out exactly what that tipping point was, though they were definitely a lot slower than his usual thoughts thanks to how worn out he felt. "That took a lot out of me." He admitted, letting go of the buoy as he proceeded into a backfloat. "Let's head back to shore. I wanna check out that bar. And your bikini. But mostly the bar. Probably."

Zane had realized by now he wasn't even trying to hold back his less than honorable comments, maybe on account to getting used to Atani's presence. It did feel pretty nice. He felt as though he was funny enough to get away with it too - he was the comic relief character after all. Catching his breath as he relaxed on the backfloat back Zane slowly but surely found himself on the shore once again. Lifting his back off of the shallow water he'd stretch a little bit, getting used to being on solid ground once again: not that he was off it for very long anyways. "You know, I really should've brought a towel." Zane remarked. His hastiness in making his way here most likely led to that mistake. "Oh well, We'll be mostly dry in a minute anyways - I'm sure that bar gets water everywhere all the time. So, ready to go buy me some drinks?" Zane asked, shining a somewhat cocky smile towards Atani. "Lead the way, I'll be right behind you." Zane gestured his hand towards the tiki bar in a way that told Atani to go on ahead, yet something about his face made it seem as though there was some ulterior motive.

"Ha, sure." Atani rolled her eyes at Zane's joke and went to float on her back to relax a bit after the race. Her gaze fixated on the sky above. It had not yet turned completely dark, but a few stars could be seen twinkling above. It was nearly the perfect time to enjoy the tiki bar with its lanterns and torches aglow with fire. Soon enough, Zane also came to that same conclusion, though he had vastly different motives than her.

"Probably?" She let out a small laugh and switched back to treading the water. The two swam back to shore. As Atani bent down to dry her skin and hair, Zane remarked that he had neglected to bring a towel of his own. Unfortunately, she only had that one. Once dry, she shook the sand from her cover and put it back on, forgoing the tie that would otherwise fasten its front. Once prepared, he asked if she was ready to buy the drinks.

"I suppose," she responded, after which she began her walk to the tiki bar.

There were many open seats to choose from. It seemed the bar was not as popular in the spring as it was in the summer. The elf set her towel down atop one of the barstools so as not to get sand all over it, and promptly took her seat.

The specials listed were appropriately tropical in nature, though they were all foreign to Atani. Elven meads and wine were what she was used to in Athalran, not these uniquely flavored concoctions.

"Coconut rum, melon liqueur, banana daiquiris?" She looked to Zane. "People drink this sort of stuff?"

Zane frowned a little bit as Atani led on, following her down the beach in the direction of the tiki bar with a somewhat childish disappointed tone in his voice. "Aww, did you really have to put it back on?" He asked, grabbing his shirt from the sandcastle it had been stuck on while the two were on the way back. Sliding it onto his chest as he walked, Zane brushed off some sand from its fabric as the two entered into the tiki bar. The place was quiet, a detail Zane could appreciate while on a date with another person. Usually he'd complain about such a thing if it was just him and the evil demonic soul inside of his head, but when he already had someone he wanted the company of he could settle for the very modest number of patrons who were currently here. Zane's trunks were still somewhat wet, but thankfully they were good enough to not drip water everywhere. Zane had a feeling that a tiki bar was probably used to having water on the stools anyways. "Now I really wish I had a towel." Zane remarked as Atani placed hers on the stool, taking a seat on the one directly to the right of her as he looked in her direction. "Impressive, by the way."

Zane was looking at their selection himself as she listed off the options, not seeming nearly as surprised as Atani was - he supposed she wasn't quite as used to the stuff served in Fiore, especially in an admittedly tacky place like Hargeon. "Guess they're really going for that tropical theming." Zane was never the biggest fan of it himself, especially considering his hometown of Baska was about as far away from stereotypically tropical as one could get. "Hmm... how many jewels do you think I'm handsome enough to get away with?" Zane asked regarding the matter of Atani paying. To be entirely fair she was already giving him a pretty large sum of jewels already - he could show at least a LITTLE restraint when it came to further maiming her wallet. It looked as though the bartender was slightly preoccupied with another customer at the moment so the two would have more than enough time to think about what they wanted.

"I gotta admit, being here in Hargeon is definitely a nice change of pace." Zane placed his jaw in his hand as he leaned against the counter of the bar. "I was in Oak for a long while and lemme tell you, that place is definitely a hellhole. And the worst part is that somehow I always end up visiting there!" Zane felt as though this was probably the most opportune time to take a drink in the middle of his rant - shame the bartender was busy. "Trust me, go to like.. Astera instead. Or Baska. Even Worth Woodsea would be a more pleasant experience than that place..." Zane sighed a little to himself. He really did go to Oak way more than any regular person would. Was it some kind of syndrome? "Now that I think about it though, you seemed pretty impressed earlier with how many places in Fiore I've been. Have you been anywhere else besides Hargeon, Atani?"

"Not nearly 300k this time, that's for sure," she smirked. He was lucky to get that much to begin with, though he hadn't yet physically received the jewels. That would come at a later time. "But, I will let you pick the first round of drinks. I'll try whatever you have."

Atani had not yet been too adventurous with alcoholic beverages in Fiore. She mostly stuck to what she knew-- meads and wine-- though the former was more difficult to come by. It seemed that the bartender was preoccupied for the moment, so in the meantime she and Zane were able to engage in some chatter. He talked about some time spent in Oak-- a quiet town from what she had heard of it whose bars were subpar, as the elf just discovered. According to Zane, even a place as remote as Worth Woodsea would have better drinks.

"Good to know," Atani laughed before listening to Zane's question. She shook her head 'no' in response. "I lived in Athalran as you know, but after that, I really only passed through towns before settling in Hargeon with Blue Pegasus. Most I don't even remember the names of, I stayed so briefly."

Shortly after her explanation, the bartender came over. He apologized for the wait and asked if they were ready to order. Atani looked to Zane in anticipation.

"Awww... and here I was hoping I could get the 400k option. Bummer." Zane joked, his eyes glancing the menu over once more as he tried his best to think about what it was he was actually going to order. Unable to properly pick in a reasonable time, his eyes frantically looked it up and down as he spoke internally. "Eenie meanie miney mo, catch a tiger by his toe..." Zane continued on with the rest of the saying that he definitely 100% remembers word for word at the time of this post's writing, eventually stopping on a selection. Perfect. That was settled then.

"I see... you're definitely pretty new to Fiore then, huh?" Zane responded, his mind instantly thinking up the top 25 coolest travel stories he could use to impress Atani. "I know pretty much everything about this country at this point, so you could really ask me anything. Like uhhh, worst sewers? Crocus, easily. Didn't like those ones." Zane put his hand on his chin as he attempted to think of other bizarre categories, the realization that his date might not be into things like sewers not having struck him yet. "Best sidewalks? Astera. Bustiest guild? Definitely Blue Pegasus - good job on helping them out with that by the way. Largest number of run down inns? That wo-" Zane was interrupted by the bartender, an annoyed look on his face after having been interrupted in such a fashion twice within 1 evening. Trying his best to remember what his eenie meanie had picked earlier, Zane soon managed to grab a hold of the memory. "Two Zombie cocktails please." Zane replied, the bartender nodding in response.

As the bartender began to mix their drinks, Zane turned back in Atani's direction. "Anyways, you get the idea. You could probably ask me just about anything and I'd have an answer." That was definitely a lie - not even Zane was that delusional! He could definitely answer at least 90% of anything though. Or 80. 70 was more reasonable, actually. The bartender placed Atani's drink down first, Zane's being on the way. "So, go ahead. You must have at least a few questions you wanna ask, right? Go on, hit me with all you got - it can be about me, about Fiore, about math - anything." Zane admittedly hoped she didn't pick that last one - he sorta flunked all of his math classes back in school.

Atani nodded her head. She was still new to the country, though perhaps that wasn't made clear until she explained just how little she knew of the surrounding towns. Zane was in the complete opposite situation as her. He had been around all around the country and knew a little about everything. Sidewalks, sewers, inns, guilds--

Before he could go on any further, the bartender interrupted Zane and took their order. Upon choosing the zombie cocktail, Atani glanced at the drinks menu to see what that consisted of. Various tropical fruit juices and rum it seemed. Definitely nothing she had had before, but it sounded like it would be fun to try. After that, she looked back to Zane as he went on to speak some more.

"Anything?" she asked, arching a brow. Frankly, no question immediately came to mind. There were dozens of places she wanted to see, both in and out of Fiore. "Well, to be honest, I'm not sure what I want to know about Fiore yet. For now, I think I just want to get used to Hargeon," she replied, scratching the back of her neck. "But I do want to know, if you could travel to any place outside of Fiore, what would it be?"

"Iceberg!" Zane responded. "Would be pretty cool to go there and meet like, a troll or something. Probably not gonna happen though."

Their conversation continued on for quite a while from there, a host of many different topics and questions being covered. The two certainly drank their fair share in the meantime as well - by the time that 30 minutes had passed the two certainly managed to rack up a slightly higher than average tiki bar tab. Finishing another drink, Zane let out a satisfied sigh. Things were going well. Really well. He somehow hadn't messed anything up just yet. Maybe that was because the opportunities available for him to screw something up were limited? If that truly was the case, thank god. Hopefully it would stay that way for the rest of the even-

A slow song came on across the tiki bar as a man with a ukulele started to perform on the small stage that lay in the establishment. Zane turned to face the stage, his body rotating in his stool as he quickly noted a few pairs of people getting up and engaging in a slow dance. This was it. This was his opportunity! Zane could either mess this up big time or have what could be the best date of his life in a single stroke. There was no way those kind of stakes weren't exciting, right?! This is what Zane lived for! And the best part of it all was that Beelzebub wasn't even around to be pessimistic about it!

Standing up from his stool, Zane straightened his posture a slight bit as he turned to face Atani, a slight smile on his face showing his genuine excitement at being able to ask what he was about to ask. "May I have this dance, Atani?" Zane inquired, feeling a little bit cool knowing that he actually got to say those cliche words at some point within his lifetime. Zane's hand reached out toward where she sat, ready to take her away from the bar counter so the two could engage in dance.

Should Atani have taken Zane's hand, he would have slowly led her a few feet away from where their stool lay, eventually bringing her in front of him. The cool breeze of the evening made Zane's hair sway back and forth just as much as any dancer would, the smile on his face only growing as he got more and more giddy about how cool of a situation he found himself in. His hand followed suit as well, the habit of him squeezing Atani a little tighter whenever things went well continuing. "I've never actually done a slow dance, but I think it should be simple..." Zane commented, attempting to mimic what the other couples around them were doing by raising their held hands upwards and to the side while his free hand rest on her hip.

Zane's feet moved around the floor with a little bit of clumsiness, though definitely not nearly enough to cause anything bad to happen - yet, anyways. It was clear he was trying his best for Atani. A slightly embarassed look came across his face, perhaps because Zane actually did realize how vital this could be to where the date went from here. A slightly flustered look of this nature was certainly rare for Zane - Atani ought to be proud to be the one to bring it on. "So, tell me..." Zane squeezed her hand once again, his body also showing similar habits by bringing them a little bit closer than they were a moment ago. The slow ukulele song continued to play in the background as Zane conversed with a quieter tone than usual as the pair danced. "Do you think the book was the best thing you got out of this deal we've made, or is it something else now?"
Man, I can't imagine being over 30. I'm just gonna pre-order a coffin at that point.

The two chatted amongst themselves for roughly half an hour, though it didn't feel like it. The time flew by as they scarfed down drink after drink. The Fiorian beverages were far different from what she had back at her homeland, but they were a good different. Some of them she could hardly taste the alcohol at all given all the sweet fruits and flavored liquors. It was safe to say the elf did not know her limits for these sorts of things, and before long, she had almost forgotten she was the one paying the tab at the end of the night.

Their chatter faded as a slow song began to play throughout the bar. A small grin appeared on the elf's face as she listened to the soft tune playing on the ukulele. As couples began to dance to the music, she was surprised to see Zane too stand up from his seat. Hand outstretched, he asked Atani to join him.

"But of course," she giggled. She took his hand and stood from her bar stool. Upon standing, she felt a little dizzier than anticipated, but the girl maintained her composure with the sort of elegance that would be expected of Wood Elves such as her. She let her body be steadied by Zane's hands. She looked at him with a jovial impish expression. Her cheeks had gained a slight tinge of rose from the drinks, though it was hard to tell in the dim lighting of the tiki bar. Zane soon expressed that he didn't have any experience with slow dances before.

"I haven't either," she admitted. Wood Elves, as naturally graceful as they were, were not as refined as their high elven counterparts. Slow dances were reserved for events with the nobles. Atani had never attended one of those things. As such, she typically wouldn't even have engaged in this sort of dance, especially not with someone whom she hardly knew-- though her and Zane talked for a while, they did only meet not more than a day ago-- but with a little alcohol in her system, the elf was far more easygoing.

Their movements had a clumsy tone to them. Not ideal, but only to be expected of two people who hadn't had a slow dance in their lives. But that said, Atani didn't mind it at all. In fact, it came off as humorous to her. Oh, the things her friends back at home would say if she saw her now.

"So, tell me..."

As the mage listened to Zane, the corner of her mouth quirked to a half grin. "I don't know," she sarcastically teased. "I still haven't translated it but... I suppose a book is just a book, and the night isn't over. Maybe we both can get something more out of our deal.~"

Atani's confession that she hadn't really dabbled in this kind of dancing either certainly did a lot to help Zane feel less nervous about it all. It definitely helped him even moreso considering he was taking the lead with this dance - even if he was just playing copycat with the other couples around the bar for the time being. "Sooo in other words I will be in a few hours~" Zane teased back, having a feeling that his figurative stock had been rising quite steadily throughout the course of the evening. Within that analogy this little dance the two were doing was quite the chance for a steep upward curve to start forming. Knowing that made Zane feel just a little bit more daring, his hand that had been on her body shifting slightly to a much more bold placement, though certainly not at a place that would be deemed too far just yet. It was definitely getting close to that line however.

The song in the bar ended at a certain point, a new tune being put in its place. This one was definitely still slow but certainly had a different tone to it, the other couples being just a bit less slow with their dancing. Zane increased the tempo a little bit himself, but a more interesting development was caught by him a few seconds later. A man and the woman on the other side of the area seemed to have performed some sort of dip briefly. This gave Zane quite a tremendous idea, one that only seemed like an even better concept thanks to the alcohol he had gotten in his system. "That couple over there did quite the dip..." Zane said in a soft voice to Atani, his eyes moving back to her after having been on the other two for a moment. "Let's see if we can't do better. Ready?" Zane asked, holding onto her just a little bit tighter as he braced himself to perform the move. Zane danced as he had been for a few seconds more, eventually performing a turn and following that up with his attempted dip. Zane definitely had a bit of a miscalculation however, both the fact that he was a tad bit drunk and the fact that he had no experience with these types of dances showing. First of all, he leaned a bit too much with Atani. He probably should've stayed mostly upright but instead tried to stay close to her as he dipped her down. Second, the hand on her back wasn't quite high enough to get the best balance. Third, he stumbled a little bit while doing it.

Through some miracle Zane did managed to pull them back up, but it definitely seemed as though they were about half a second away from falling onto the floor together. A relieved sigh of sorts came from Zane as he pulled the two of them upright. A laugh followed after. "Close one." He admitted, unable to hide the smile on his face. Somehow almost completely messing that up was a lot more fun than simply getting it entirely right. "My dancing skills are pretty amazing, huh?" He noted sarcastically. "Any other expert maneuvers you'd like to try?"

"Maybe," she reiterated. "We'll see.~"

Atani truthfully did not know how the night would end up. When she first met Zane, she hadn't even intended on buying his book, let alone go out on a date with him. She had anticipated their relationship to remain platonic acquaintances. But now?-- She felt his hand travel further down her back-- Now, she didn't think she would mind if it went in the complete opposite direction. At least for tonight. At least while her blood was still saturated with strong liquor.

Atani's eyes drifted to the couple Zane mentioned. He suggested showing them up with a dip of their own, to which she felt unnaturally confident about despite their awkwardness with even the basics of slow dancing. "Ready," she confirmed.

She didn't know why she thought it would work out. She fell back, trusting Zane to keep her steady in his arms, but it seemed they were both off their game. She didn't have as solid footing on the ground as she intended, and Zane fumbled with his hand placement. Together, they nearly hit the ground, but by some work of the gods, they managed to stay afoot. The elf laughed as Zane pulled her upright.

"My dancing skills are pretty amazing, huh?"

"Oh yes, the best one here," she replied in an equally sarcastic tone. He asked if there was anything else she wanted to try. "And have you drop me for real this time? I think--" She leaned in closer to Zane, standing on the tips of her toes for extra height. "I'm not intoxicated enough to do something that stupid right now... But on that note, one last drink for the night?"

Going to the tiki bar was definitely a very good idea on their part. Ever since Atani had started to get liquor in her system she seemed to have been becoming more and more flirty - and confident - by the minute. In an odd way Zane almost felt threatened, as though she would starting surpassing him in that regard. That being said, he couldn't help but admit that the way her voice sometimes took a different tone and how she'd bring their bodies closer was undeniably appealing. "Well, when you lean up against me like that I don't think there's any way I could say no." He replied, a small smirk coming upon his face as he let go of her hand, moving to her side with his arm still wrapped around her as it was earlier. As they approached the very nearby bar Zane opted to just lean on the counter rather than sit on the stool, perhaps due to just how much he liked holding onto her for the time being.

"The strong stuff you gave us earlier." Zane was referring to a drink they had a shot of a little while earlier, its name being far too hard to pronounce for the drunken blonde man. "One more for the both of us." The bartender nodded, filling up the two shot glasses that still remained at the spot on the counter the two sat at earlier. Gently lifting the glass, Zane looked towards Atani before opting to drink it. "To the bar tab you'll probably regret in the morning." He joked, lifting his glass in toast. Once Atani found her own self ready Zane would savor the last drink they would be having at the bar tonight. Letting out a satisfied 'ahhh' sound, Zane now faced Atani a bit more directly, choosing to wrap his other arm around her as they spoke - once he had put the glass back on the counter, of course. "Nice, but certainly a tad bit anticlimactic." Zane had a feeling that Atani had something else planned however. There was no way it could end on just that, right? "But we're not done yet either way, right? What's the plan now? There's something that tells me you have an idea..." It was a hunch. A hunch told him that.
The Nasal Cycle. Look it up.

Atani grinned as she heard Zane agree to the final drink of the night. It was even better when he took the liberty of ordering another one of the strong shots from before-- They weren't usually her sort of thing, but tonight was all about pushing her limits. Whether all of her choices were intentional or not, it was hard to say, but there was no turning back now, and she didn't yet regret a thing.

"Sure, to that," she said, shaking her head as she raised her own shot glass to Zane's toast. She squeezed her eyes shut as she tilted the glass back. The spirit burned as it went down her throat, but considerably less so than when she first started drinking that night. Her lips puckered, and she took a sip of some fruit juice that was leftover from one of her other drinks to chase the flavor away. Zane seemed to handle it a lot better than she did, though she wagered he had far more experience at these sorts of bars than the elf who only knew her meads and wines.

Atani set her shot glass down, the clink of the material hitting the bar sounding louder than intended, and tuned into Zane once more. As his sentence trailed off, a smirk appeared on the elf's face. "You know..." She leaned forward to place a hand on the blond man's thigh, cheeks flushing a deeper shade of red from the shot she just took. "There's still those jewels at my place you need to pick up. We could settle up here and head there."

Was Atani actually surpassing him? Zane grew more and more surprised by the second as her own touch got more daring, his heart somehow racing by seeing what seemed to be a completely innocent-seeming woman about an hour or two ago do this. Zane did suppose alcohol could change the behavior of some people rather quickly... should he and Atani continue talking after tonight he'd have to try and remember how to bring out this side of her. "Right. The jewels areee still there, after all." Zane remarked, knowing full well that the jewels were probably a secondary concern for the both of them at the current moment. Still, it could be nice to pick them up. It would most definitely get Beelzebub off his back when the demon decided to wake up tomorrow. Thanks to both the drinks and Atani's hand on his thigh Zane couldn't help but feel a surge of confidence prompting him to slide his hands off of Atani - but not before his left gave a very notable pat on her rear. He was definitely playing with fire here, but he had a feeling he'd be fine! "Well, start leading the way. I'll grab that towel." Zane was of course referring to the beach wrap, having forgotten that was its original purpose given the fact its only purpose in the last half hour was to serve as seating for Atani.

Zane planned to go and settle the tab at the bar tomorrow - unless Atani wanted to do it, which he wouldn't mind - so he did not bother with giving any sort of explanation to the bartender. Zane could tell the guy was probably used to this exact scenario already. Picking up the beach wrap that lay on the stool with one hand, Zane quickly made his way back to Atani, ready to follow her whichever direction she may be leading. "I've wanted to do that since we met, by the way." Zane admitted, not really specifying what exactly he meant by that comment. He was kinda curious about the exact details of where he was being led though. Atani was a member of Blue Pegasus which was no doubt a pretty wealthy guild from his understanding. Maybe she'd have a mansion? "What's your place like anyways? Am I gonna get to visit a grand manor tonight? Perhaps the highest room in the tallest apartment complex?"
Autumn is the best season of year, hands down.

Atani gave a devilish grin as Zane agreed to her proposition. It seemed they were on the same page.

"Oh, thank you~" the elf said, standing up from her seat at the bar so Zane could grab the towel for her. She swayed slightly from the sudden transition, but regained her balance shortly thereafter. That last shot finally did it, huh. Though come morning, it was unlikely she would even remember how much she had drank the night before. The tab to come would surely serve as an unfriendly reminder to that, however.

The two began their walk to Atani's. The elf looked to Zane with an eyebrow raised in vague amusement as he said he'd always wanted to do 'that' since he met her. 'That' meaning touching her rear, going to her place, or something completely different, Atani did not know. No matter way she looked at it, she couldn't help but sense an immature meaning in his words.

"Oh really?" she simply replied, failing to address what 'that' meant. But it didn't matter, for Zane inquired about what her home was like. His assumptions were all of the extravagant kind, to which Atani couldn't help but laugh at. She was not among the Blue Pegasus stereotypes in that regard. "Actually, it's an apartment part of a small complex I found not too far from the guild hall. Sorry to disappoint~"

And by small complex, she meant it was two floors in height with frankly very few rooms to spare. It was still looking for new tenants, so she was one of the few who actually resided there. It was a favorable situation for the introverted elf, for she didn't take much liking to several neighbors.

The walk to her apartment was rather short after passing Blue Pegasus's guild hall. She let in Zane through the doors of the front entrance and traveled up a set of stairs to reach the floor she resided on.

"Well, we're here," she said as she jiggled her keys into her door to unlock it. Inside, he would find a neatly made queen-sized bed resting upon carpeted floor. It shared its space with some storage items, sparse decoration, and a dining room table. Where the carpet stopped, wood started, and therein laid a small kitchen. Once they were in, she'd shut the door behind and lock it.

"Oh." Zane definitely sounded at least somewhat disappointed. Oh well! Perhaps Atani would someday rise up the ranks into the higher class and live in a dream manor - one that she would invite Zane to, obviously. "I'm sure it'll still be quite nice."

As Atani led Zane through the little building that her apartment resided in he couldn't help but note that it felt surprisingly empty. In a way this could definitely be seen as a good thing, though it did lend a sort of eeriness to the place. He certainly hoped that those rooms would be filled with people sooner or later, abandoned apartments were some of the scariest structures out there. Zane's looking around was soon interrupted by the sound of Atani's door opening, his head immediately turning at an angle that let him see just what the inside of the place was like. "Wooooah." He commented, pleasantly surprised at the rather good condition of the place. It was certainly a tad on the small side, but he could appreciate cozy. The bed looked amazing, so much so in fact that Zane immediately found himself imagining what it would be like to have a nap on it. His mind did eventually wander to other things from that thought however as he remembered the reason the two of them were here in the first place. Well, one of the reasons anyways.

"It looks quite nice." Zane commented, his eyes scanning the room to see if there was anything else of note as he stepped in the door. His sandals slipped off rather easily. Zane gently rested the beach wrap onto the coat rack figuring that it probably wouldn't be needed for the rest of the night. The sound of the door locking came to Zane's ears and knowing that Atani was now done with making sure nobody could bust in during the night he'd silently take her hand, guiding her further into her apartment. There was certainly a sort of confidence to his actions that was slightly different from the aura he exhibited earlier. While before Zane seemed to simply be daring, now he gave off the air of someone who knew they had succeeded and was ready to reap the rewards. Zane brought her towards the center of the room - in front of the bed - and then stopped.

Turning around, he once again held her like he had before, though this time with a bit of a firmer touch, one that suggested any sort of seconds thoughts had left his mind. In truth he certainly didn't expect to get as far as he had tonight. While Zane was incredibly egotistical he always operated off the assumption that somewhere along the way his plans would falter and he'd end up failing in a rather spectacular manner. Something told him that failure was off the table tonight. Zane looked into Atani's eyes deeply, holding her closer than he had back at the bar. "So... are we going to pretend to care about the money? Or are you going tell me why it is you invited me back here~?"
The answer is yes. Maybe. Probably. Possibly. Theoretically.

"Thanks!" She beamed at Zane after his compliment. She tried to keep her space tidy, even if she never expected guests to show-- the elf hardly ever invited anyone to begin with. She simply enjoyed a space when it didn't make her feel as if a tornado had gone through the room. Coming back from a tiresome day of guild work, a calming sense of relaxation was just what she needed.

Tonight though, that was not the case. Her chest felt warm anticipating what was to come. They drew closer to her bed, and upon reaching a certain point, Zane held her with a firm grasp that was reminiscent of earlier, yet was filled with more power this time around. The words that came out of his mouth all but confirmed they were riding the same wave.

"I think we both know the answer to that~" Atani replied, leaning further into Zane. Also like before, she stood lightly on her toes, bringing her height closer to the taller man's. Her chest pressed against his. Despite them still being in swimwear, having skin exposed to the room's air, the heat exchanged between their bodies was unmistakable. The elf gazed seductively into Zane's eyes. She brought a hand to the side of his cheek. It was warm to the touch from their drinks, though Atani paid little attention to that. Instead, she shut her lids, and brought her lips to his if he allowed it.

Wakin up

"Zane!"

Beelzebub's voice woke Zane right up from his rather peaceful dream, his arms immediately sitting him up on the bed he lay on. it was right around now that Zane felt a bit of a headache, his arms instead moving to reach for his noggin. "Took you long enough to wake up. I've been yelling at you for five minutes now. Five! Think about all the other things I could've done in that time." Zane chuckled lightly to himself. "Such as literally nothing?" Zane asked, commenting on how Beelzebub didn't really have any direct control over Zane's body. Then again, Zane did suppose that Beelzebub did have an opportunity to simply think to himself while his host slept...

"Your fun is over, Zane. Find the money." Zane tilted his head a little, opening his eyes wider to look at the blankets on the bed. The money? He kept it in the drawer by hi- wait. This blanket. Zane's grabbed onto it. He didn't have any of this color. In fact, this wasn't his bed! Looking to his left he spotted Atani laying there beside him, still asleep. Oh. While the initial feeling was panic, it soon turned into happiness. And then pride. And then a sen- "Stop wasting time reflecting on it! It's already scary enough thinking of you with a mate for a split second." Beelzebub's voice made an extremely loud shudder. "The possible spread of your genes will no doubt lead to the mass stupidification of Earthland."

Zane made a quick note to remember the word Beelzebub just invented there and began to slip out from under the blankets, looking back at Atani as he did so. He was sure it would be fine! Even Zane while drunk wouldn't make that big of a mistake. Slipping into the array of clothes he had gotten out of earlier, Zane groaned while his hangover-afflicted self searched around Atani's apartment for the jewels she had promised. "How about there?" Beelzebub asked, Zane noticing the same drawer in tthat Beelzebub did. It did seem to be the kind of place where someone would keep their money... moving towards the drawer slowly, Zane eventually gripped onto its handle. As Zane pulled out the drawer he started a very unfortunate chain reaction. The drawer being pulled out eventually knocked over a broom that was leaning on the surface as it. The broom fell towards a picture frame on a smaller table nearby, the frame then landing right next to a mouse that had somehow gotten into the apartment. Zane should probably suggest adopting a cat to Atani later on. The mouse scurried towards the other end of the room in fear, eventually moving past a small vial - perfume, perhaps - on the windowsill that crashed into the ground, shattering right near where Zane had initially woken up.

Zane stood there, shocked. The domino effect had essentially rendered him immobile during the whole thing. Who could blame him? When something like that just happened right before your eyes it was practically impossible to do anything but look on in awe. "As impressive as that set of circumstances was, I have a feeling it might have woken someone up..." The glass was indeed quite loud. Zane eyed Atani, hoping she wouldn't come awake. He would rather not have to deal with her reacting to that vial being broken...
Miss me, everyone?
