Eli sat in a booth at his favourite jazz club, a finger tapping along to the slow beat of the music as he waited for his soulmate to arrive. Soulmate. The realization that he had found his soulmate after so long was still sinking in, and he had been thinking it over during the last few weeks since they had met. He and Adrian had discussed it, and decided that it was time for their first proper date. And so here he sat, dressed in a nice dress shirt and slacks, occasionally letting his gaze drift around the room.

The other patrons paid him no mind, the majority being regulars like himself. The few new faces were more absorbed in the music or their conversations to notice him, and he was tucked away in one of the booths that ran along two walls of the club, away from curious eyes. The wait staff had been surprised to hear that he was waiting for someone, and he wondered if bets were being exchanged in the kitchen behind the bar.

Spotting Adrian in the entrance, Eli raised a hand, signalling a waiter and directing him to bring the man over. As his soulmate approached, the vampire smiled, pleased to see him again. "Good evening," he said once Adrian was at the table. "How has your day been?"

Adrian had felt as though he'd been on a high when he'd first met his soulmate, Eli. It was amazing and even during the time since their first meeting, he couldn't get over it. When Adrian thought of his soulmate, he felt an almost unnatural amount of happiness overcome him. It wasn't unnatural in the sense that it was bad. It was just a weird feeling. He'd never expected to feel so good about someone else before.

While they had taken a few weeks apart, both being busy with their lives, Adrian had texted Eli as much as he could. Hopefully he hadn't come across as annoying. But then again, he hadn't sent multitudes of texts over short periods of time. He would occasionally send a selfie to Eli though. Thankfully his soulmate didn't mind that. When he had asked for a selfie, Eli had explained that wasn't really his thing; which Adrian totally understood and accepted. Selfies could be weird at times.

As he walked down the street toward a jazz club that Eli had suggested they have their second date at, all he could feel was his nerves flying high. It was their first official date, but it was technically their second. Confusing, but it made sense in odd ways. As he walked up, wearing a dark dress shirt, and dress pants, he wondered if he should have brought something for Eli. He was a cheesy person at times, but he wasn't sure if he should have brought flowers. Would that take things too far?

Walking into the club, he saw Eli and felt his heart leap out of his chest. He was soon led over to the table where Eli greeted him. Smiling somewhat nervously, he nodded his head to his soulmate. "I had an okay day so far. I expect it'll be much better now though," he admitted with a faint blush. Sitting down and sliding into the booth, getting cozy beside Eli, he felt much better.

"I actually debated whether I should have brought you flowers. But then I realised I don't know if you like flowers. And if you did, what your favourites would be. So I decided not to." he admitted with a laugh. He looked down at his hands before smiling up to Eli. Leaning in for a chaste kiss, he pulled back and said, "It's good to see you again. I feel happier now."

Adrian certainly looked happy to see him, and Eli chuckled as he noticed the faint blush on his soulmate's cheeks. He shifted slight as Adrian slid in beside him, relaxing back into the cushions of the booth, comfortable in the presence of his soulmate. "Only okay? Slow day at the gallery?" he asked, raising an eyebrow slightly. Today was Eli's day off, so he had spent it relaxing and catching up on some reading. The kiss Adrian gave him was gentle and the vampire swore he heard a faint gasp coming from the bar. Heh, looks like he had managed to shock the bartender.

"It's good to see you too." Adrian wanted to bring him gifts? How romantic. Eli imagined that his father had dome something similar when courting his mother, but that was 200 years ago and such sentiments were rare these days. "I'm flattered, but you don't need to give me anything. As for my favourite flower I like dahlias, but I enjoy anything that doesn't have a strong smell. What about you?"

While he waited for a reply, he picked up the drink menu and scanned it. The waiters knew that he was old enough to drink despite his youthful appearance, but he wasn't sure if Adrian was in the mood for alcohol. "Do you want anything to drink, or shall we stick to pop?" he asked when Adrian was done speaking, sliding the drink menu over to him.

Adrian nodded his head and sighed. "It usually is nothing but slow days, unless there's a showing." he said while glancing out at the people at the club. When Eli glanced over at the bar, Adrian also looked over before quickly looking back to his soulmate. He was told that he didn't need to get Eli anything, he was also told what his favourite flower was. Dahlias were pretty. "Now I know that you enjoy them. I would have to say lilies are my favourite. They come in so many colours." he said with a chuckle. He was an artist and enjoyed stimulation. He enjoyed flowers for their sentimental value, but also for their inspirational aspect as well.

When Eli slid the drink menu over to him, he gave a warm smile and a quiet 'thank you'. He glanced at the classic alcoholic drink options and then over to Eli. "I wouldn't mind a drink. Although I warn you, don't give me too many." he laughed, joking with him. While he had a decent alcohol tolerance, he was a silly drunk. He wouldn't want Eli to see such an embarrassing side of him so quickly. There was no telling what he would do if he was drunk and with his soulmate. The possibilities flying in his mind were cringe-worthy.

When the waiter came back over, he glanced at Eli and placed his order. "I'll have a rum and coke, please," he trailed off, leaving it open for Eli to place his order. Adrian had no way of knowing that he was a regular here. While Eli had said that he liked to come here, he didn't consider how often that would be.

"Lillies are very pretty," Eli agreed, making a mental note to visit the local flower shops and see what kind of lillies they had in stock. He mostly associated them with sick people (they were a popular gift according to the nurses) or the dead, often being displayed at funerals. They smelled a little too strongly for him to love them, but it would worth putting up with it if his soulmate wanted them. He watched Adrian scan the drink selection, then place an order.

"Don't worry, I can drink enough for both of us," he joked. "You can take the boy out of the Navy, but you can never take the Navy out of the boy. I'll have the usual rum on the rocks, please," he said, addressing the last part to the waiter. The man nodded respectfully and departed, leaving them alone once more. Eli rested his arms comfortably on the table, smiling at Adrian. "I recall getting drunk once or twice in the past, but it was usually because another sailor bet that I couldn't. Let's just say it was an...expensive....loss on his part." His stunt had also gotten him barred from a few port inns and alehouses, so he tried to drink reasonably now that he was out of the navy.

"How long will the current show run for?" he asked. "If it's ending soon, I'll have to get in and have a look around. I only got a quick glance in last time.

Adrian listened as Eli joked around, grinning himself as the navy was mentioned. There was a stereotype about people in the navy being drinkers, so it was a good joke that he understood. When the waiter went off, Adrian looked back over to Eli and smirked. "I hope he paid for the drinks as well as the bet," he added. He was suddenly reminded of his twenty-first birthday and couldn't help but blush and laugh at the same time. "My first time getting drunk, was my 21st birthday. And if you recall that was my first time with a man and I regret it. Not because of what we did, but rather, how well my drunkenness was documented." he laughed again. "I am still recognized by the bouncer that night as the guy who tried to give out free lap dances," he said, covering his face out of embarrassment, all the while chuckling.

Clearing his throat as his embarrassment faded and his face started to change back to its normal colour, he looked over at Eli and smiled. "Oh, it's supposed to last all of next week. Nathaniel says that now that Infusist's credibility is so high, that the gallery can afford to host the show longer. he half bragged. Although, only a handful of people knew his identity. "Besides, if you want in, I'm pretty sure Nathaniel won't mind. Seeing as you are my soulmate and all," he said with an endearing tone to his voice. As he said it, he leaned in for another kiss, a more playful one this time. He nipped at Eli's bottom lip when someone cleared their voice.

Adrian looked over and blushed as the waiter was placing their drinks down. Adrian felt as though they had been caught doing something and pulled back. "Sorry if I'm too handsy right now." he apologised.

"Oh yes, he paid for them, although not without making a fuss." Eli smiled at the memory, then focused back on Adrian as he blushed. Yes, he remembered Adrian telling him about his first time sleeping with a man. "Free lap dances, hm? You should show me your skills sometime." While it was an embarrassing memory for Adrian, Eli found it to be an amusing story.

Eli nodded, pleased at the news that the show would be on for a while longer. "I'm glad Infusist is doing so well. The city needs new talented artists like them." He closed his eyes as Adrian leaned in for a kiss, running his fingers gently along his soulmate's jaw as teeth pulled lightly at his lower lip. He had heard the waiter approach, but paid him no mind. It was only when the polite cough came that he looked at the man, red eyes narrowing in warning at the interruption.

"No need to apologize, sir. Just don't disturb the other customers, please." the waiter replied, bowing slightly before retreating. "In other words, don't climb into my lap or start stripping. Kissing is fine, and-" he broke off to glare at the waiter's back, "-should be expected in this atmosphere. The staff should know that." Shaking his head slightly, Eli reached for his drink. "To our first date," he said softly, smiling at Adrian.

Adrian chuckled at the mention of the man making a fuss. His chuckles turned to an embarrassed laugh as Eli suggested he show him his lap dance skills sometime. "They're probably better when I'm drunk to be honest," he laughed, trying to play it off. He didn't think that he would be good at a lap dance, but when he had been drunk, that hadn't stopped him from trying.

Smiling to himself at the compliment, he nodded his head. "Agreed. I'll pass the word on." As he started to kiss Eli and had made a move of placing his hand along his soulmate's hip when the waiter had interrupted. Adrian hadn't intended to go far with Eli, more of, just casual making out. It had been so long since they had last seen each other. The waiter's words made Adrian worried. They wouldn't get kicked out, would they?

But Eli eased his concerns. Smiling at the vampire, he lifted his glass in the toast. "And many more to come," he added, taking a drink from his glass. When he turned his attention to the jazz music, he looked around at the atmosphere of the club and felt it right to ask. "Are you a regular here or something?" he asked with an interested tone. He wanted to know everything he could about his soulmate.

He waited for an answer when a woman came up to the table and started to get excited. "Eli! I didn't know you had a date! Hi, sorry, I'm Sam," she said enthusiastically, sticking her hand out to Adrian. Taking ti gently, he shook it before releasing. "I'm Adrian," was all he said. Should he tell her that they were soulmates? Or would Eli prefer not to say anything yet? He would wait and see.
