To New Acquaintances || Andrea & Evan

andrea-clark:

Andrea needed a night off. She had been working hard on her research, but after making a miscalculation with two the samples, she knew the best thing for her to do was to clear her head. The Fountain of Youth was a great place to do just that. Being Vincent’s club, she knew that if anything happened there should be someone close by to help her. 

Over the past few weeks she’d been working on trying to master her ability. There had been no accidents since the rodent incident with Vincent and of that, she was relieved. The outbursts really drained her energy, making control even more of an impossibility. 

Andrea was enjoying some people watching and sipping her drink when a man’s voice caught her attention. She turned with a smile to address him. “Andrea,” she responded as she took his hand and gave it a gentle shake. “Nice to meet you Evan. How are you doing tonight?”

Fully aware of his surroundings, and who he may run into, Evan was even more careful not to make any of his intentions seem purposeful. He did take note of her name, careful to be sure he would remember it in the future just in case he ever needed it for anything. “Well, I would have to say that I’m doing pretty well for someone who has a tendency to work more often than he does relax. What about you? How are you doing tonight despite being pestered by a stranger? Oh, by the way, I don’t think I said that it is a pleasure to meet you.”

At that moment he had just finished his own drink, and just as he was about to ask for a second, he paused only to turn his attention to the female he’d just met. “Would you like a drink? I don’t mind buying, and I promise it comes with no strings attached, just trying to do the gentlemanly thing.” For now, he thought to himself as he waited for her response. Eventually he may try to get information from her, but that was really only if he didn’t already get it for himself, and even then he would have to be sure to establish a good basis for friendship with Andrea before he ever thought of going that route.

Surprises; Gemma & Evan

gemma-ross:

Gemma smiled. The waiter came by immediately, and she went ahead and order them both two each. “Well then, Mr. Kantor. What’s been new in your world as a single man? I have to say, I think that you being out alone tonight is a tragedy, one that I am happy to fix. But I’ve expected you to be surrounded with beautiful people with a face like yours.” The waiter returned with their drinks promptly, and Gemma took a sip of hers.

She looked back at the crowd for a moment, careful to make sure no one she knew was out there. After a quick scan, she pushed the three people she didn’t want to recognize her to never look in her direction for the rest of the night. Returning her gaze to him with a smile, she placed her drink of the table. “How’s work been? I’ve heard Advent has some new clients, some that I share.”

Amused at the banter that Gemma was providing, Evan chuckled softly before returning his gaze to her. “As much as I would enjoy to be surrounded by a ton of beautiful women, I must admit that as of late I haven’t given myself enough time to go out there and really meet new people.” Evan shrugged slightly at his own comment before continuing, “Sometimes I wonder if it’s all worth it. Although, I have to admit, every once in a while it’s nice to meet a woman who isn’t afraid to have a little bit of fun. The problem is that most of the ones I do happen to run across are either already taken… although, that doesn’t always stop me, and then a good deal of the others are too concerned with making the whole fling with me a more official thing.”

Evan took a moment to take a sip from his drink while Gemma asked her question. “In most occasions I wouldn’t mind discussing the easier parts of my job… however, tonight, I came out with the intentions of avoiding work altogether as that’s what I’ve been submersed in all of this time.” His eyes shot out to the crowd looking to see if he could find any changes in any of the people out there that Gemma may have caused, but found nothing. He set his drink aside, and then sat back, his eyes on her. “You know what… I’m not all that interested in the drinks right now, at least not here. Are you going to be the sort of girl who has fun tonight? Because if you are, I’m suggesting you and I head out…”

We Have Work To Do || Rachel & Evan

rachelxteer:

Rachel let out a sigh of relief and chuckled softly. “Oh thank God. I trust you, Mr. Kantor, and I trust your driving then. It would be rather faster, wouldn’t it? Not having to worry about the train or anything too,” she replied with a small smile. She often had to try and watch her words with the man. She didn’t want to upset or cross him, not only because he was her boss but also, since it wasn’t in her nature to do so. He didn’t deserve such treatment, in her opinion.

When they had arrived, she climbed out of the car with his help and made their way inside. The smell of Greek cuisine made her stomach rumble. She followed him to their seats and smiled when he pulled out her chair. She seated herself and adjsuted accordingly as etiquette.  Her eyes widened upon hearing his remark. “Oh, well, thank you, sir. Though, I will make it up to you at some point,” she said with a small chuckle as she looked over the menu. Rachel put it to the side after deciding on what she wanted and turned to the man in front of her. “Well, after briefly discussing it with Miss Devlin, we decided on a steampunk theme. She wanted to combine the past and future together and I was thinking of the aspect of steampunk - combining past with future.”

More often than not Evan was accustomed to people acting skittish, and often times afraid of him. Although Rachel had the tendency to be careful around Evan she never gave him the idea that she was particularly afraid of him. He hadn’t quiet decided if it was naive and foolish for her, or whether it worked best in her favor. Just the same, he was careful to keep a charming personality around her, so as not to allow her to suspect anything other than just that. He wanted her to feel somewhat comfortable around him.

Rachel’s idea caused Evan to think for a moment over it. “Past, and future… I wonder, have you thought of how you are combining the two, or have you not gotten that far?” He asked curiously. The server approached their table and Evan gestured for Rachel to order first, only speaking once she was through, and then doing the same. He returned to the concept she had proposed. “I’m merely curious as to what past ideas you were intending to use and combine with the future.”

Let Me Invite You // Evan & Isaac

theisaacmason:

Isaac listened two names, twice. Florence Devlin and Evan Kantor. They, the second generation, had a lot to worry and he decided handle first the government before the scientist. He wanted not only find to Sakura, he wanted know all. After a made a research about them, Isaac decided approach first to Evan. They worked in the same building so he can find an excuse to approach to him.

Isaac went directly to the elevator pushing the button to the floor. He can’t arrive and say hello as nothing. When the door opened, he found to Evan face to face and he had a coffee in his hand. Isaac tripped over him. He immediately began to apologize: “Sorry, I apologize!”

Just like any other day at the office, Evan’s work day was extremely busy that started the moment he walked through the front door. Not only were papers piling up on his desk, and constant phone calls coming in, but he had the other standard work related things happening. People seemed to stop by his office in a continuous fearful stream of questions, requests, approval, or simply for his suggestions. Every person that stopped by giving him the nervous eye made his day pass just slightly easier as he drew amusement from other people’s discomfort.

As with most work days this one also included an inhuman number of meetings in which he either had to attend, or conference into. Grabbing what he would need for this meeting to leave early knowing it would give him plenty of time to get there, and get everything in order before the meeting started, he made his way towards the elevator. The moment that the doors opened Isaac, one of his employees stumbled out, apologies flying as he tripped over Evan. Rolling his eyes slightly, Evan made eye contact with the man. “Stop apologizing, and please tell me what it is that you need. I’m a busy man.”

Gallery Talk || Evan & Jana

le-jana-hart:

The gallery was full that day, which was a nice change. Of course it also meant that she was walking around the gallery instead of in her studio working on her next piece. Not that she was really complaining; Jana had hit sort of a dry spot and it seemed everything she tried to create was not working for her. She decided that maybe walking around the gallery and looking at the new exhibits would help fuel her creative desires. As she rounded the corner she saw a particular piece that caught her eye…as well as the eye of a finer, rich looking gentleman. She came and stood next to him, a smile on her face as she looked at it. “So, what does this one say to you?” she asked. Maybe his views would help her create something.

Today had seemed like a calmer day in Evan’s life. This was something that didn’t happen all too often these days. Free time, such as this, just didn’t make an appearance for him anymore. Just the same, he had decided to use it to his advantage. He had spent some time in his home, and realized just how bare one of the rooms he liked to spend time in best was. Knowing that the plain wall would annoy him completely, he set off to find an art gallery that he had heard of. Being that Evan had been around the richer side of society, he’d gotten accustomed to spotting fine art. With each piece that even remotely caught his eye, Evan took his time to examine it, and wait to see if he liked it even in the least.

The sound of a voice took him out of his focus on the piece set before him. Smiling over at the stranger, he returned his gaze to the piece for a moment and said, “You know, I haven’t quiet decided yet. All I know is that I like it. Most art lovers always have ways of saying how a piece is provocative, or moving… This one just makes me… feel  something, I just haven’t been able to tell.” Extending a hand out to the female, he added, “My name’s Evan.”

Corner of the Sky // Violet & Evan

violetmillers:

She sighed and finally let herself roll onto her back. She noticed the hand that almost touched her, and part of her wish he had. Looking over at him, her arm falling above her head as she released her death grip on the blanket. She looked over at him and paused, the softness of his face stopping her from lashing out at him. It was calming in such a strange way, seeing him speaking to her like they had never changed.

"Can’t it be both?" she sighed. Letting her fingers play with her hair, she took her time just to look at him. In all honesty, she had never hated him like she played that she did. The divorce settlements had left her miffed, but she never truly hated him. 

Her free hand reached out for his. “Can you do me… just one favor?” she whispered, biting her lip. “Can we just, just pretend like nothing bad ever happened between us? Just for today. We can go back to hating each other and fighting and snapping tomorrow. But can you just pretend to be mine again for today?”

The first thing that caught Evan’s attention when Violet rolled over onto her back was the way that her eyes slowly took in the sight of him. It wasn’t that the way she took her time looking him over particularly meant anything, but it at least told him enough for him to realize that he wasn’t completely repulsive to her. Evan liked knowing that she didn’t hate him quite as much as she always let on, and this would be one of those rare moments in which she would probably ever allow herself this one small moment of weakness. Violet would normally hate letting Evan know that her façade wasn’t completely real. All the same, the second thing that caught his attention was the very beauty of her lying there, even if she did look upset.

Her words caused him to pause for a moment and mull things over. Could she have been asking about both things? “I suppose I see what you mean. Yeah, I guess it really can mean both things.” Truth be told, Evan was a little bitter about the fact that Vincent just waltzed right in and essentially took his wife from him. Even more than that, he was still hurt by the fact that it was so easy for Violet to go. The latter was something that he would never let anyone know. It seemed to be much better off for the two of them to act as though they couldn’t stand each other, and it was much easier to keep the truth of his feelings out of it when everything ended in an argument. Right now? This was a danger to that lie, but at the same time he almost didn’t care.

Violet’s request was a simple one. Evan simply nodded. To hell with Vincent, and what he would think of this, right now Violet was with him and needed him and really that’s all that mattered. Evan stretched himself out next to her. He wrestled internally over whether he should actually hold her, or not, and eventually he gave in to the idea. If she didn’t want it he would have a bruise to show for it later, and he didn’t care. Evan pulled her into him and wrapped an arm around her. “I know you want to pretend that nothing ever happened, and I’m willing to go along with it, but will you at least tell me what in the world upset you? Afterwards I promise to pretend as though nothing bad in the past has happened at all.”

Surprises; Gemma & Evan

gemma-ross:

Gemma leaned forward and smiled, listening intently to what he said. She noticed that there was something different about him than the last time she had seen him. She chocked it up to the fact that he had recently divorced his wife and watched her walk away with another man, a man that had actually been with her the entire time. She did feel sorry for the man, just a bit. She had had quite a large hand in the demolition of their relationship, but it was fun to do so.

"Well then," she began, making a bit of a show of scooting closer. "I was thinking that you’d want nothing more to do with me. Especially since, well you know…" She nodded to his hand where a wedding band used to be. "But if that’s not an issue for you, then it certainly isn’t for me. How about a few more drinks and we see what goes from there?"

image

Evan quickly took notice of the way Gemma exaggerated moving closer to him. In all honesty it wasn’t that he didn’t mind, but he had become accustomed to scaring most people off. Her words caught him slightly off guard. Evan’s eyes landed on his finger where his wedding band had once been, and his jaw clenched. He didn’t particularly blame Gemma for the whole thing, but he didn’t really like thinking about it. 

With a slight shrug, Evan glanced back up at her. “Why should it be an issue? It’s over, after all. Why would I go around and waste time wallowing in pain over something that isn’t ever going to change or be fixed?” In truth Evan knew he would always feel something for Violet deep down, but he wasn’t going to let it destroy him in any way. He changed his face to show a smile that transformed him so he looked completely at ease. “A couple more drinks, and I’m quite fine with seeing where the night leads if you are.”

To New Acquaintances || Andrea & Evan

Every single day of Evan’s life there was one thing that he prided himself on most, and that was the fact that he was able to obtain information from people that most others only wish that they could have. The trick was he had ways about getting information that either didn’t seem as though he were trying, or if not all of that, he had other people who worked for him who could gather what information he needed that allowed him to appear as if he weren’t involved.

This was a trait that helped Evan become the powerful man that he was. He made his way to The Fountain of Youth, gave the password, and slipped into the hidden bar feeling as though he needed some winding down. As he walked towards the bar, his eyes glanced over the people that were gathered there. He stopped as he caught sight of someone he’d seen and heard of, but never truly taken the time to meet. 

After getting his drink, he made his way towards the female with a charming smile on his face. “I couldn’t help but notice that you were standing here all alone, and who would I be if I didn’t come over here and introduce myself if for no other reason than to talk to a lovely lady such as yourself.” He held his hand out to her. “Evan, and you are?”
