To New Acquaintances || Andrea & Evan
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.
