PostSubject: To Consider It a Date (Victoria)   Sun Sep 27, 2015 7:18 pm

Zander met Victoria at the start of term back and September and since then, she had quickly become his best friend. It wasn't hard for her to claim that position, as she was kind and he had no friends. He spent every moment he had with her, well the ones that he wasn't working or in class or sleeping.

However, as they talked and grew closer, Zander's feelings changed and developed and he began to realise that he liked her. However, he was afraid of ruining their friendship, so he didn't tell her. The boy had only had one other girlfriend and that was when he was twelve so it couldn't be counted even if he did peck the girl on her lips.

However, today was a milestone in his life as he had asked Victoria to go get ice cream with him. It wasn't exactly a date if she didn't want it to be but if she did, then it was. He though and thought of how to tell her that he liked her, but he could think of nothing. Still thinking, he walked to Victoria's dorm to pick her up. He wasn't someone who would ever make her walk herself. As he door opened, he smiled and gave her a slight bow.

Victoria had been utterly grateful for Zander's kind gesture of letting her stay in his apartment the night she'd locked herself out. True to her word, she'd excused herself from his apartment as soon as she could (which happened to be after he made her breakfast) to get her key. Since then, however, Victoria had made sure that she repaid the kindness she'd been shown.

A cake had been the best she could cook in thanks for his kindness. And it was, perhaps, a little pinker than Zander might have liked, but it got the message across that she was thankful.

From there, Victoria had spent a lot of time with Zander, because the more time they spent together, the more she realised just how nice he really was. And interesting. Their mutual love of books meant they had plenty to talk about, and Victoria was so happy to find someone who genuinely understood her passion for reading.

They were, Victoria was sure, close friends now, perhaps even best friends. Zander made her feel safe, and comfortable, and she simply couldn't ask for more of someone. When Zander had asked her to go out for ice cream, Victoria had agreed without a second thought. Whilst it might be colder now, it would be nice to catch up with her best friend as she'd been very busy with her studying and really needed a break.

Checking her hair once more in the window, Victoria smiled to herself, turning to pull a jacket on to keep herself warm. It was only a second later that a knock came at her door, and Victoria's smile grew in an instant. Hurrying towards the door (which the ever trusting witch left unlocked for her friends to come in whenever they needed to) Victoria took in Zander and smiled a little wider.

Until he bowed, then Victoria couldn't help but giggle a little. "You don't need to bow! I'm not the Queen of England!" Victoria told her friend with a grin, picking up her scarf from the table and wrapping it around her neck before picking up her gloves. She was wrapped up warm, there was no doubt about that.

"I'm ready now!" Victoria finished, giving Zander a smile. "Let's go try some unusual ice cream, shall we?"

The first time Zander and Victoria had met was under not so great circumstances which resulted in Victoria staying the night with Zander. She had promised she'd be gone in the morning, but Zander had made her stick around as he woke up early to make her a rather large breakfast. She had promised him that she'd repay him for his kindness and he insisted she didn't but days later, she turned up with a highly pink cake and couldn't be more thankful. It was the best cake he'd ever tasted.

This morning, Zander had been extra careful to get ready. Typically he dressed fashionable however today, he'd shaved, pulled on a black button up, dark jeans and a winter coat and sprayed on some stuff to make him smell good. Since the night they'd met and he learned that she'd never had a boyfriend, he found himself constantly trying to impress her, even without knowing.

"You may not be the Queen of England but you're the Queen of someone's world," the boy smiled, "and for that you deserve respect." He took her hand in his and planted a tiny kiss on top. It was weird, the way he'd been acting but he sort of like it just like he liked Victoria. She was a pretty girl, one that he wanted to do his absolute best to protect. He hadn't been able to do the same for his parents, but he would for her.

He watched as she layered on more clothing, making sure to stay warm and he found himself a bit saddened as he didn't have any excuse to hug her or give her his coat.

As the girl told him she was ready, he wrapped his arms around her in a quick hug before pulling away and offering her his elbow. "We shall."

The compliment had Victoria blushing as her smile grew. Compliments - no matter how small - always brought a blush to her cheeks, simply because of the sweetness of the gesture was so touching, Victoria didn't know how anyone could take them without blushing. "Oh, shush, I'm sure that's not true!" Victoria insisted, watching as he pressed his lips to her knuckles and feeling her heart flutter a little and the sweetness of her best friend.

Accepting the hug gratefully, Victoria took hold of Zander's arm that was offered and followed him out of the apartment, making sure to keep hold of her key until they were out of the apartment and then pocketing it. "Got it safely!" Victoria announced, something of a running joke now.

"Would you like to do the honours?" The witch asked in respect of apparating to Diagon Alley. As easy as it would be for her to do it, Victoria preferred concentrating on holding on to the other person when she side apparated as it made it easier for her to control the nausea that she succumbed to with magical transport.

He enjoyed constantly causing the blush to rise over her face. In fact, it was often the best parts of his day because it usually happened when he complimented her and she definitely deserved all the compliments. "Well I don't exactly know your brother," his eyes locked on hers, "but I can assure you that he sees you like a Queen. He'd be lost without you." The boy smiled, his hand letting hers go gently.

He was glad that she didn't pull out of his hug but most of all, he was glad that she actually took his arm and didn't leave him hanging. His heart fluttered a bit and he smiled as he escorted her out of her room. When she showed him that she still had a hold of her key after closing the door, he laughed a bit, glad he wouldn't have to coax her into staying on his couch again. The first time had been hard enough.

"I certainly would," he replied making sure she had a good enough grip on him. From the few months he'd known her, he came to respect her dislike for apparating alone. He understood the way she felt and understood why side-along apparition was her better choice. "Ready," he told her, letting her know to tighten her grip. With a nod, they disapparated to Diagon Alley.

"You okay?" he asked, looking to his best friend as he steadied himself.

The idea of Jake thinking of her as a Queen made Victoria concede the point in that moment, after all, there was no point in arguing over such things. Jake loved her deeply, and she loved him in the same manner, there was nothing to be denied in that respect.

As they readied themselves for the transport, Victoria held on to Zander's arm just a little tighter to make sure they wouldn't be separated in that moment, closing her eyes and waiting for the pull from behind her navel. Nodding when the man beside her asked if she was ready, Victoria waited for only a brief couple of moments before her feet touched back on to the ground.

"You okay?"

Pausing for a moment, and taking a deep breath, Victoria collected herself. Opening her eyes, looking up to the man beside her, Victoria smiled warmly. "I am now, thank you!" Victoria replied, glad that Zander had always been so understanding about how she wasn't great with magical travel. After a moment, Victoria pulled him gently towards the ice cream shop, not wanting to wait around for too long.

"So, have you decided what kind of ice cream you will be having?" Victoria asked Zander curiously, so far she wasn't sure what his favourite was, but she was sure she would know one day. "Though, I mustn't eat too much, I have dance practice this evening with the girls!" Victoria reminded both him and herself, it wouldn't do to dance on a full stomach, after all.

Zander was glad when Victoria didn't argue with him, however from the past few months of knowing her he had come to also know that she was not one to argue and secretly he was thankful. At one point he feared relationships and girls period because of how people portrayed them; as handfuls. However, Victoria was not like any other girl and because of this, he wished he could have met her in Hogwarts. She probably knew who he was especially with him holding Head Boy and Prefect, but she was a year younger so he never met her, merely saw her around.

Apparition was one thing he excelled at, it seemed to come natural to him. The boy had passed his test with flying colours and he never once splinched, nor did he want to. Hearing that Victoria was feeling better, he smiled. She was quite adorable to him. As he felt her gently pull him, he began to walk allowing her to lead him to Florean's.

"No, but maybe I'll just have them give me something random," he shrugged, looking down to her. "What about you?" He nodded when she reminded him of her dance practice and why she should not eat too much. He had become familiar with her activities and classes, he knew which day of the week at what time she had dance and he knew when she'd be studying or when she'd be in class. He worried that maybe he had tabs on her too often but then he justified it by knowing where she'd be if he needed him or if she needed him or even if something were to happen.

"What do you think of me?" The question from him came out of nowhere.

"Oh, a random selection sounds awesome!" Victoria agreed with the man beside her. "Or, perhaps I could pick something for you?" Victoria suggested, though she didn't have a clue what she would pick for him, but she'd put a lot of thought in to it if he agreed.

"As for me..." Victoria paused, thinking for a moment. "I think I'll have the hazlenut chocolate ice cream, that one is very nice!" The witch decided with a warm smile, turning in to the shop which was, despite the cold, still relatively busy.

"What do you think of me?"

The question threw the witch off guard in that moment. It was, simply put, a strange question, and Victoria did not know how she was supposed to deal with it. As usual when Victoria was thinking, a small crease formed in her forehead, concentration and perhaps confusion quite clear in that moment. "What do you mean, Zander?" Victoria asked, looking to the man curiously.

"You're a nice person, who so happens to be my best friend..." She added, not waiting for an answer to her own question. "You've helped me a lot in the start of university, and I will forever be in your debt for that. Has someone told you something not very nice?" Victoria asked, worrying that her friend might be being bullied, and that she'd have to somehow intervene to make sure it didn't continue.

He was glad that she agreed with him about a random selection being awesome. In all truth and honesty, he'd never really been to Florean's so he didn't know what he'd like. "If you wouldn't mind that'd actually be better." He smiled, accepting the girl's offer for her maybe picking something for him.

He looked down to her as she decided on what she would get. "That sounds great," he smiled, debating what the flavour would taste like. Turning into the shop, he took in the sights, smells and the amount of people that was there. It was shocking, especially since it was already November.

For a moment, anxiety hit him and he debated asking her if she would mind going somewhere else, but he decided against it and put a smile on his face instead.

As his question hit her and her facial expression turned into one of concentration, he bit his lip as the anxiety rose up in him. What did he mean? He tried to think of an answer for her and failed. He didn't want to tell her he liked her, he wanted to subtly hint at it, but he didn't know how and now he had confused her. Confusion was the last feeling that Zander had ever expected to give Victoria.

However, she spoke anyways and when she did, he smiled. "No, no one has said anything of the sort," he explained, giving her a reassuring smile. "I guess I just kind of wanted to know where I stood with you," he said, his voice shaking a bit as his cheeks threatened to redden.

"Of course I don't mind!" Victoria replied happily, still trying to think of a really good flavour for her best friend to try out. There was so much variety, it would be nearly impossible to pick just one, but Victoria had time just yet.

Finding out no one had upset Zander didn't make it any easier for Victoria to understand what was going on. Looking up at the man curiously, the witch allowed him to explain what he was trying to ask. Still nothing really made sense, so Victoria pursed her lips for a moment in thought.

"Well, right now, you're stood in front of me!" Victoria teased, buying herself some time as she continued to think on his words. "But, you're my friend, Zander, you know that. Well, actually you're probably one of my best friends - I know you're supposed to have only one, or maybe even two, but I am close with so many people. But you're one of my closest best friends..."

The witch paused, looking up at him, really looking. "What are you trying to say, Zander, because you have gotten me stumped, and that really doesn't happen very often." Victoria continued, frustration (with herself) mounting as she couldn't work this puzzle out.

"Great," he chuckled, "I trust you a lot more than some greasy haired guy behind an ice cream counter." In fact, Zander trusted Victoria more than he even trusted himself and not just for choosing a flavour of ice cream.

When she pursed her lips in though, he sighed internally, knowing that she still didn't understand. Would he need to just come out and say it? No, he didn't want to. Victoria was smart enough to figure this out, he knew she was, she was however inexperienced in this area as was he.

He let out a small chuckle at her remark. He knew she didn't say it to be smart, but it could be taken that way and coming from her, it was quite humorous and adorable. "I know," he replied, "and you're the same to me Victoria, but..." but what? What was he going to say?

He had paused just as she spoke and he smiled a sad smile upon learning that he had stumped her. "I just don't know how to tell you this," he sighed, his face in more of a frown now. "I mean, I like you Victoria," his voice was quiet and shaky, "like a lot more than a best friend." He looked down to the ground, afraid that things would get awkward because she only thought of him as a friend. He'd probably ruined their friendship and she'd laugh at him and leave and tell him he was pathetic, even though he knew she wasn't like that.

The observation of what many would call a typical server in a fast food place made Victoria roll her eyes a little bit. "Don't be mean, he's only trying to earn some money." Victoria chastised the man beside her, though only lightly because she was quite sure that Zander didn't really mean what he'd said in that moment.

The notion that they meant the same to each other was enough to make Victoria relax. Except for the but. "Oh, come on, Zander. There is no 'but'!" Victoria tried to assure the man, leading him through the door of the ice cream shop so that she could see the menu, seemingly quite oblivious to what he was trying to tell her because she had absolutely no experience with these kind of things, and could not see what was heading her way faster than a runaway train.

"More than a-" Victoria's sentence cut off as she caught on to what Zander was saying. Her eyes went a little larger than normal, looking up at the man before her in... well, disbelief. Not because she thought little of herself, oh no, but because she didn't think Zander thought of her... "Oh..." Victoria continued a moment later, pausing once more to try and put a sentence together even though she was struggling.

"Well..." The witch tried once more, pausing and shaking her head as she collected herself. "I'm not sure what I'm supposed to say to that, Zander." Victoria admitted softly, her cheeks glowing a most beautiful pink in that moment. Nobody had ever told her that they felt like that about her, and it was most overwhelming, for the moment, she decided to turn towards the board, thinking about a proper response while she searched the board for something he might like.

"How about that one?" Victoria asked, pointing to the Toasted Marshamallow and S'Mores milkshake that was the special at the moment. "My treat?" She prompted, turning to look at her best friend with a bright smile.

He started to tell her that he wasn't being mean, but he decided not to and hoped she was somewhat joking as she chastised him. Zander wasn't one for talking back nor was he one for arguing, and it was one of the reasons him and Victoria got along. Neither of them argued. From what he noticed, neither of them had to be right or even have the last say, they just both simply stopped talking and changed the subject if they knew they were to disagree.

Victoria tried to tell him he shouldn't be using the word 'but' as she drug him through the door, but not long after, the reality of what he'd just said hit her. He couldn't deny that it was kind of cute to watch that reality hit her, but it also caused a sinking feeling in his stomach.

He felt incredibly bad for putting her in this situation and immediately regretted what he said. Watching her turn a shade of pink as she admitted her lack of knowledge for how she should answer, he too looked away turning a vivid red. Out the corner of his eye, he could see her turn to the board and he wasn't sure what he should say. Should he move on to another subject? Finally, he decided on an apology. "I'm sorry Victoria," he mumbled softly, "I shouldn't have told you." He knew it was a bad idea but he couldn't help it.

"That one sounds great," he offered her a little smile as she turned to him. Zander shook his head, "You order, I pay." There was no way he'd ever make her pay for anything.

The apology had Victoria shaking her head in an instant. "You don't have to be sorry!" The witch replied, truly meaning it. "You haven't done anything wrong!" She added, not wanting him to think that she was saying it just to appease him. She would wait, however, to further this conversation.

First, she wanted ice cream.

As they got to the front of the queue, Victoria ordered their ice creams, allowing Zander to pay for them like he'd suggested. She would find another time to give him the money back for the ice cream, because she didn't like to take things from anyone. Taking the tray with the small bowls of ice cream, Victoria moved to a window seat, knowing her best friend would be following her. Sitting down, Victoria passed the ice cream to Zander.

Allowing another short pause, Victoria tucked her hair carefully behind her ear on the left side. Shyness seemed to have taken hold as Victoria struggled with the words she wanted to say to the man before her. But after opening her mouth, Victoria closed it once more, taking just another moment to collect herself. "I'm sorry, I didn't deal with that very well." Victoria told the man before her with a small smile, apologetic. "I just, nobody has ever said that to me before... and..." The witch paused, sighing to herself.

"Well, I like you too, Zander, though I don't know if my feelings are as strong... but I like you a lot, Merlin, I love you as my friend. I know you said more than a friend... Feelings are confusing, and I'm jabbering on incoherently..." The witch explained, blushing a little as she finished. "I don't know what more to say, so I think I should leave it to you." She finished softly, hoping that was okay as she lifted her spoon to her lips, eating the ice cream carefully.

"I know but - okay," he stated, looking towards the board that held all the flavours. She was right, he didn't have to be sorry but he was. He felt bad for putting her in this situation, in this confusing situation. As the neared the front, he kept his eyes on the board, just as she did. He didn't even care about the ice cream, he just wanted to be with her. He didn't know if she was just avoiding conversation now or avoiding this particular conversation, but he never questioned her.

He wouldn't talk until she did.

When they were finally the next ones in line, Victoria had ordered just like her asked her to and she had allowed him to pay just like she asked him to. He knew that knowing her, she'd try to find a way to pay him back some kind of way, which frankly he didn't mind if it was in the form of another cake. He was going to take the tray of ice cream once the guy had served them, but she had grabbed it first and walked over to a window seat which caused Zander to follow her. She was so independent and Zander liked it but he also hated it because he just wanted to be able to treat her with chivalry.

After she passed him his ice cream, he took a bite and decided it was sweet but it was really great and he silently thanked her for picking the flavour, maybe they should always do that - let her pick the flavours that is. He watched her push a strand of hair behind her ear and as she opened her mouth to say something she seemed to close it again. "It's okay Victoria - really," he smiled, "perfectly understandable." Because he kind of felt the same as her right now.

He smiled at her when she was trying to describe her feelings. She seemed to be a bit flustered and it was pretty adorable. When she said she'd leave it to him, what exactly did she mean by that? Zander pondered the things he could say - or ask. "Victoria," he took a deep breath, the voice wavering a bit, "will you be my girlfriend?" If all else fails he could pretend none of this actually happened.

Zander was so sweet for being so understanding over her predicament with responding to his words. Some people might have gotten frustrated, but Victoria was truly glad that he wasn't one of those. Sometimes, despite her clever nature, Victoria needed a little time to process what she'd seen, read or heard, in order to deal with it appropriately. And she'd been granted that.

Smiling when he said it was okay, Victoria felt herself relax in to the situation a little bit. Zander was being understanding, and she couldn't have asked for more.

But his question...

Well, Victoria felt her face lighting up with his words even before she could decide on a response to that. Her answer was already showing as her features declared her happiness with the situation. "Yes!" Victoria exclaimed happily once her mind caught up with the situation, letting out a soft giggle at the sound of the word in that moment. "I would love to be your girlfriend!" The witch added, thinking it would likely be a little more beneficial for Zander than an over excited, singular response.

"But, only if you eat all your ice cream up!" She added happily, dipping her own spoon in to her ice cream and eating it happily. Victoria's smile was warmer than usual, looking over at Zander affectionately. "Because I won't be able to cook you dinner tonight!" She added, because a relationship was like that, wasn't it? They'd spend more time together, she'd make sure he was okay, they'd go out on dates, perhaps to get ice cream like they were now, or maybe even to the cinema, she'd cook for him, and they'd have amazing nights that would seem to last forever.

Victoria was excited, and she simply would not hide it.

From anyone.

Zander didn't know what had gotten into him and why but when he asked her the question he did not expect a good answer to come from it, especially seeing as how she'd been so confused when he was trying to tell her that he liked her. It wasn't hard to see that the boy was incredibly nervous and possibly scared shitless. His face was red as a fire engine and his heart beat like a thousand race horses pushing to the finish line.

He didn't know what scared him most, the thought of her having an older brother or the thought of how bad her answer to his simple question could be. However, when she said yes, his frown turned into the biggest smile imaginable. He kind of wanted to grab her and hug her and kiss her but he contained his excitement and took a bite of his ice cream instead. She was so sweet and he could see the excitement radiating off of her and he just couldn't find any words to say, he was that happy.

"Of course I'll eat all my ice cream up, you picked it out for me," he let out a small chuckle as he ate another spoonful. "I don't ever expect you to cook me dinner Victoria," Zander said, "not even if we got married sometime in the future." He didn't say it to hurt her feelings and he really hoped he didn't, he just kind of wanted her to know that that was not his expectations. "A woman serves a more important role in relationships than just someone who cooks," he added to make sure that he didn't hurt her. That was something he never ever wanted to do.

The smile on Zander's face was bigger than any Victoria had ever seen on him before. It was great to see him so happy, he was such a nice guy, he deserved all the happiness in the world. And now, Victoria thought, she could make him happy, she knew that!

When Zander insisted that she didn't have to cook for him, Victoria chuckled softly. "I know I don't have to, but I would like to! Besides, I love cooking, it's fun! And, I can ask mom for some awesome recipes too!" Victoria told him excitedly.

"Remember, I'm teaching law, I know the values of equality!" Victoria told him with a grin. Though, she did like some of the gender roles that had been created, she didn't think that they were the only way a relationship could be. "You can do the washing up, to make it fair!" She teased, scooping up another spoonful of ice cream and turning the spoon towards him.

"I forgot to ask if you'd like to try mine, it's really good!" Victoria added, giving Zander a warm smile, hoping it was okay.

Zander tried to stop smiling so huge but he couldn't. He couldn't hide his smile just like he couldn't hide his happiness and quite frankly, he didn't want to. He didn't care who would grow tired of his constant smiles and happiness, but he knew Victoria wouldn't. Or at least he hoped she wouldn't. Zander never had much luck with girls but Victoria had already proven that she was different.

Zander had tossed the marriage word there but he didn't want to toss it around much as it was a large commitment and he'd just asked her out. He knew he'd end up marrying someone, whether or not it was Victoria he didn't know but he'd like to think that it would be. "Well at least let me help," he smiled because he too loved cooking.

"I know you do," he smiled, forgetting that she was teaching law. "Deal," he chuckled, reaching out to shake hands because that was what business people did when they made deals right? When she turned the spoon towards him, he nodded, "Sure." Turning his own spoon he asked if she'd like to try some of his as well.
