Kersen really hated doing this with everyone he'd gone to see, but with Angelique it was even more difficult because he'd have to come up with some excuse that he could actually give and not ruin her life by telling her about vampires.

But on the chance that he didn't come out of the trial with the Magister (whether it was because he was dead or because he was going to be chained in silver for a while), he really didn't want Angelique to think he'd just disappeared on her. They'd only just started to get to know each other, and it was about the time when, if someone decided to freak out, they would probably freak out and not call her. He didn't want to risk doing that.

So he called the number she gave him, and asked if they could meet up to talk, location her choice even if she'd just like to come to the bar or send him to her place.

Talking was exactly what Angelique had been wanting to do, though between Pride celebrations and twisting her ankle early last week, she'd not been able to reach Kersen at a good time for the both of them. When he called, however, she cleared her schedule with lightning quickness, and proposed what she thought of as a rather romantic evening stroll along the South Bank.

She waited at the corner to meet him as they'd planned, in a flowy summer A-line dress and far more sensible shoes than she usually wore. Her right ankle was still wrapped up in a bandage, but at least it felt strong enough to walk on it for a little while.

He was so lovely that Angelique just watched him approach for a few moments, savoring it. She smiled for him, and stepped up to greet him, only limping a little now. The prescription from Doctor House made it easier to walk.

"Hello, beautiful. I'm so pleased you called. How have you been, since I saw you at Saturnalia?"

Angelique leaned up to place a quick kiss on the turned-down corner of Kersen's mouth. "Only a bit. I turned my ankle last week and had to get it wrapped up. I have some lovely tablets that make everything better again. We can have our evening stroll together," she added hopefully.

Twice, in fact, but Angelique wasn't ready to explain about that, yet. She slid her hand around Kersen's, watching him to see if he would accept such a seemingly chaste gesture. "It's a wonderful night. And so quiet, we can talk as long as we like."

"I like to think i'm a bit more interesting than that," Angelique half-laughed, going slowly as they started wandering along the bank. She recalled with crystal clarity what Alcuin Delaunay had suggested. "Honestly, I think I've been so distracted whenever we've spent time together by just how unlawfully beautiful you are, that... well, I haven't been able to get to know you. Truly know you, I mean. And I want that. I want that very much."

Angelique's smile brightened when she looked up at him, her hand tightening around his in confirmation. She hadn't been sure Kersen would even be interested, or want anything more than the friendly flirtation and physical relationship they already had. "I do mean it. I feel... understood, by you, in a way that even my other queer friends don't manage. You're beautiful and elegant but I... want to know what's beyond that. Beyond the surface."

utterly_mysterious: (oh honey)
Though Angelique didn't exactly laugh, her sigh did sound amused. "It's funny. I've heard 'I thought I was straight until I met you.' I think this is my first time hearing 'I thought I was gay until I met you." She shook her head fondly.

"All right, I'll try to be straightforward. I don't think of myself as a woman. I don't think of myself as a man, either. I like to think that I break all of the rules," she chuckled, "but that might be hubris. I prefer female pronouns because they suit me, but I'm not transgender. I have a male body, but my heart is... just me, I suppose."

"I feel the same way about you," Angelique said, leaning closer to him for a step or two. "You've been so thoughtful and respectful of me, even when you didn't need to be. Sometimes when I'm with someone new, and I take off my clothes and they see me... it's like I stop being everything I was before, and become more like an object. A cock in a pretty pair of panties."

She winced at her own vulgarity and glanced at Kersen. "I don't know if the same thing happens for you, but it felt you understood."

"That's why you've become important to me," Angelique told him with quiet sincerity. "I don't quite know how to say it. I want to know who you are when you're alone. I want you to know who I am when I'm alone."

Her gaze wandered along the pavement before them; she was no longer looking up at Kersen. "I don't think I'm making any sense."

That brought her head up quickly, and any bashfulness melted away. "Something bad? Kersen, what is it? If there is anything I could do, you know you only have to ask. Are you... are you safe?"

Angelique lay her other hand over the one of Kersen's that she held, pressing it between both of hers. She should have asked earlier, should have said something to him earlier. Maybe then Kersen would feel he could confide in her. "I'd rather know than not know, but... I don't think you can keep me from worrying.

"You know I"m good at keeping secrets," she added with a forced little smile. "You can tell me anything."

"I'd rather know," Angelique insisted again, quiet but heart-felt. If Kersen had just disappeared... yes, she would have blamed herself. She would have assumed he wanted nothing to do with her, and a hundred other little things.

Angelique thought, if it was true that she wanted to know Kersen, really and truly, shouldn't she take the first step? "There's something you don't know about me, though," she admitted softly. "I was going to have to tell you, anyway, if we... grew any closer. But it might make you think very differently about me."

Angelique nearly laughed, and that moment of released tension was enough to set her at ease again. "No, no, nothing like that. Quite the opposite. I'm... I'm a working girl," she admitted, her chin lifted not with pride, but with determination. She accepted herself, even if there was the slim chance Kersen might not. "The oldest profession, as they say."
