Planetarium


The Aumberden Planetarium was named in honor of one of the greatest astronauts to come from the wizarding world. It's situated in Lincliff Island, north of the City. Currently, the Aumberden Planetarium is home to some of the most advanced technology, engineered by local companies, geared towards educating everyone regarding celestial navigation and astronomy. To come to Aumberden Planetarium is to explore the previously unexplored by wizardkind - the heavens itself.

Yi Hyanghyeon - Sorting
yi hyanghyeon
stormrunner
Her sibling instincts have been tingling lately and that means only one thing: her dear oppa has been overworking himself again. Nope, she decided that morning, storming into Seonhyeon's office and quite literally dragging him away from work. Sometimes she loves being a princess, or just somebody with access to a ton of money, because that means she could rent out an entire planetarium without batting an eyelash. Hyanghyeon is visibly excited as they enter the empty planetarium. "Do you think abeoji would let me buy a star? I've seen people buy stars and I lowkey wanna buy one."

Holly's here early, which is a bit of a surprise to herself considering how much she's actually been dreading this meet-up. She's missed Donnie, yes, and there's nothing more she wants than to be friends again but ever since he brought Lida with him the last time everyone hung out she's been convinced that he must either hate her. Why else would he do that? The only alternative is that what they had just... didn't mean that much to him, which she supposes makes sense too, but stings equally as much. She waits at their spot, a bench under a cluster of constellations.

Yeah, okay, fine, bringing Lida along to the group drinks wasn't the biggest brainwave he's ever had. His intelligence might be minor-genius level but he's never bragged about having common sense. Still, it seems to have done the trick; there were no suspicious comments from anybody and Whitney didn't collar him in his office with takeout and a third degree today, so maybe the heat is off their backs for a while. Donnie's still dreading this, though. He might have been the one to ask (though technically Holly did - even if she was hammered) but he's had a shit feeling about it ever since he got in the cab, and when he turns up and spots her sitting on the bench - their bench - there's a good few seconds where he considers just turning around and texting her later that his taxi got stuck in traffic. Maybe not, though. That would surely ruin things. The planetarium's pretty quiet considering it's nearly lunchtime, and he approaches her with his hands in his pockets, a little sheepish but mostly just confused. "Hey."

She was expecting him to cancel, or expecting herself to just get up, leave, and lie about not being able to make it, but here they are, alone for the first time since the treehouse. She swallows at the memory of that night – now that was terrible. Maybe there is nowhere to go but up. "Hey." she echoes, looking up before moving to one side of the bench so he has room to sit. "You have until four, right?" She knows he does because she's been rereading the texts since a while ago, but it's more of a reminder to herself that he's going home to Lida and her family, so nothing can happen this time.

This is definitely a bad idea. If he had a modicum of sense, he would have cancelled and spent the day at home with Lida, but those texts have been going around his head in circles since last night and his curiosity won over. After all, she's the one with the explaining to do, spending all night and all day in someone's fancy apartment. Is that selfish and unfair? Yes. Does he care? Not a jot. "Half four if I really want to push my luck," he replies, shrugging one shoulder to try and seem as casual as possible about all this. After all, they're just friends now, aren't they? Friends are casual. Though he can hardly remember how they behaved before they became- whatever they are now. "Am I keeping you from anyone tonight?"

Holly feels her stomach twist into knots when he asks that. Why is he asking that? She's always known that it's not like she was the only one he was seeing but she didn't think he thought the same of her. Hopefully it wasn't obvious then that she was completely wrapped around his finger but if it wasn't, then why was he making sure that she's moved on? She almost lies and says something harsh and untrue just to see if it'll hurt him, but instead what comes out is, "No? You know I'm too busy for anything like that."

He must have heard that line from her a million times and yet she still managed to end up in his bed every other night, so he can comfortably call bullshit on the too busy excuse. It takes every ounce of self-control to not say something like you always made time for me but he manages it, clamping his lips together as he looks up at the constellations suspended above their heads, glittering in the shadowed ceiling. "I'm just asking," he shrugs again; Merlin, he's not cut out for this casual thing. "You spent pretty much all day there."

"All day wh – " she's about to ask, then it registers to her what he's asking and she almost rolls her eyes at how passive aggressive he's being. She actually has no idea why he thinks he has the right to be so petty about this when he's the one who's leaving early today to go home and have dinner with his wife, not to mention it's always been so easy for him to find someone to hook up with ever since their time in Hogwarts so it's not like what they had was special or anything. "That was nothing."

Even if it was nothing, there's still that flicker of jealousy over the fact that she stayed all day in some random bloke's apartment and he's never stayed longer than- what, ten a.m. in hers? Then again, there are some extenuating circumstances that forced him home early; hey, he never said this was fair. "Those texts were a joy, though." He's still got his eyes on the stars. If he looks over at her, there's a good chance he'll see how insanely detached and careless she is about this and it'll devolve into another argument, the same way the treehouse had. Whatever. He knows he's in way deeper than she is, and it's up to him to let it fizzle out. "You've never drunk-texted me before, actually! And all while you were in someone else's apartment. I'm flattered."

She's been holding her tongue for a while now but what he says stings and she's never been one for trying to diffuse high-strung situations or actually communicating, so she bites back. "Funny. Where were you when you were offering to come pick me up?" she asks, turning to face him properly, not that he's looking at her, not that he cares. "So sorry about that, by the way. Hope I didn't wake Lida."

Cracks about Lida roll off his back pretty smoothly, at least when they come from her; it's not like Holly didn't know what she was getting in to and still jumped in head-first. "I doubt Lida would have given a shit, to be honest," he murmurs, finally turning to look at her when he sees her move in his peripheral. Already the air around them feels taut and they've barely been in each other's presence for five minutes - is this what it's going to be now? Snapping at each other and staying several feet apart? That's not very friendly of them. "Hey, don't look at me, I was more than ready to come and get you. Believe it or not, I-" I do care about you, he's about to say, but that would probably earn him a scoff or an eye-roll. "I do worry when my friends are going home with random people."

"That wasn't what happened." she reasons. It's not like she'd move on so quickly after what happened between them, then again he still doesn't know that she didn't sleep with the guy she went home with the night he brought Lida to drink with them. She was just feeling bitter and wanted to make a point of showing him she didn't care; she has no idea if she made the right call deleting that message admitting nothing happened. "I went out with some coworkers, got drunk, and someone offered to let me stay at their place. That's it."

That surprises him; there's a brief moment where Donnie considers that maybe she's just lying to spare his jealousy, but then again, since when has she ever actually cared about his feelings regarding this thing? She was very quick to call it off the second they got a little too close to the fire. "Good for you," is what he comes out with, biting his tongue to stop himself saying anything about he's actually relieved as fuck that nothing happened. He's past caring about pettiness or selfishness at this point but there's also his pride to consider, however much of it he has left with her. The coworkers comment gives way to a much-needed topic change, too, which he grabs with both hands. "Have they heard anything about the merger? Because we're completely in the dark over at the Ministry. I haven't got a clue what's going on."

Holly almost sighs with relief when the topic changes. She really doesn't want to fight with Donnie, not today, not ever, so she offers what she knows on the subject. "We've got no idea either. I feel like Clarence and Cedrica aren't too excited about it, though." she says, cracking a smile. "But I met someone who works for the Ministry and he mentioned that it's happening sooner than I thought." She doesn't know whether or not it's a wise idea to mention that this is the same guy who was nice enough to let her stay at his apartment when she was too wasted to get home. "Do you know Martin Travert?"

The mood lightens just a tad, and it's nice to see her smile for once (it never seems to happen when she's sober) but it immediately sinks the minute she mentions Travert. "Ugh, unfortunately," he says, pulling a face; he doesn't know the guy like a mate or anything, but the limited acquaintance they share is more than enough for Donnie's liking. "He's the department secretary. And an absolute pain in the neck, but at least he does his job better than the last one did."

She immediately frowns at how apparent it is that Donnie dislikes him. Holly's not very friendly or anything, but Martin was nice enough to take her home and not try anything, and she enjoyed his company to a certain degree. He was kind of boring, yes, but boring is better than being an asshole or a creep. "I think he's nice." she says, wondering how much of a bad idea it is for her to say the following words, but she figures as long as Donnie knows now that nothing happened then it should be fine. "He didn't let me sleep until I drank a full glass of water."

He pulls a face at that; the notion of Holly finding Martin, of all people, 'nice' is such a ridiculous concept that it simply has to be a dig. Either that or her standards have dropped insanely. "I know. You texted me about it," he points out, remembering that barely-legible message and the name he couldn't decipher but now knows; ugh, he's going to overthink about this, he can feel it. "At least he looked after you." And then, because he simply can't resist: "He is annoying, though. One human being shouldn't be able to send that many emails in such a short space of time."

"It's efficient." she says plainly. She understands Donnie can be petty about most people, but she feels like he's giving Martin too much flack for simply existing, or at least, more than his usual. She's also feeling defensive because she agreed to go out with him again sometime soon, which is stupid, because since when did she care so much about what Donnie thought about her love life? "He asked me out." she adds, trying to sound nonchalant. This is what friends talk about, right? There's also the part of her that wants him to tell her not to do it, but it's not like they can continue their affair or anything when their friends were already getting suspicious.

I mean- this just gets better and better. If Holly really broke things off with him to end up going out with Martin Travert then there's been a serious lapse of judgement somewhere along the line. And it really shouldn't sting as much as it does; they've broken up, they weren't even properly together in the first place, so he really shouldn't care this much about Holly going out with some irritating nobody who she'll more than likely break it off with after two months. (He's totally not bitter.) "What did you say to him?" he asks, desperately trying to sound casual - or disinterested, if he can pull it off. Probably not. He cares far too much.

She can't tell what he's thinking, so she decides to give this another shot. If she had any sense of emotional maturity, she'd probably just come out and say it – that she wants him to tell her what he thinks about all this, but she's passive aggressive and petty and terrible at communication. "I haven't, yet." she says instead, "It's kind of just... sitting there in my inbox. I haven't really decided."

He's not dense - he knows a silent ask for an input when he hears one. There are two ways he could go about that: one, he could tell her not to go out with Martin fucking Travert and that he misses her and they don't need to do this stupid petty not-talking and- but that's not realistic, so he goes with option two. "Go for it," Donnie says, regretting it as soon as it leaves his mouth but what the hell. Friends support each other with their relationships, don't they? "If he's nice and he buys you drinks, what's not to like?"

Holly tries to hide just how disappointed she feels. So Donnie doesn't care if she goes out with anyone, even if it's just been a month since they ended things, which means that he didn't care about what happened between them, or that he's found someone new to replace her already (does it even count as finding someone new to replace her when he was probably already fucking other people at the same time anyway?). "You're right." she replies thinly, forcing a smile. "I'll let you know how that goes."

Merlin, please don't. The last thing he needs is to hear how happy she is with someone else, especially so soon after she looked him in the eye and said based on our conversation, it sure doesn't look like I'm the one who got attached and other shit like that. Talk about twisting the knife. Donnie returns her smile for a few seconds but it doesn't reach his eyes, of which he quickly directs back to the constellation as he tries to mentally talk himself out of backtracking. She doesn't care. It doesn't matter at the end of the day - they were never going to make it to Christmas. "I look forward to it. Though when the merger happens, we'll all be coworkers anyway, and he can talk for England. I'm sure he'll tell me himself."

"If you think he's so annoying, then why'd you tell me to go for it?" she asks, trying not to sound as annoyed as she actually is. He's obviously bothered by the idea – she knows him well enough to surmise that. She's disappointed that he's telling her to just go out with someone else, never mind that if the roles were reversed, she'd probably do something just to avoid the emotional confrontation that she knows is coming anyway. "I don't get you."

The directness of it all takes Donnie by surprise. It shouldn't, considering how curt Holly can be when she's pissed off - he's learned that the hard way over time - but they've spent the entire conversation blatantly stepping around each other and now she's in the mood to call him out on it, which isn't fair at all. "I don't get you either," he retorts, spite bleeding into his tone as the holographic Jupiter above them rotates and the red eye spins into view. "You said you hadn't replied to him yet so I told you to go for it because- I don't know, you deserve to be happy? What do you want me to say?"

"What do you want to say?" she says, even though she's been less than honest with him about what she wants. She knows how unfair she's being, but she's going to keep holding her cards close to her chest for as long as it's apparent how little Donnie actually cares about her. What she wants is impossible, anyway – he's married and she's probably just another notch in his bedpost, and she hates it.

"It doesn't matter what I want to say." It's the quietest he's spoken so far in the conversation, and he's not looking at her when he says it because he can't; it's been a month and it's somehow still too raw. He can't bring himself to even approach the opening in the woods that leads to the treehouse, never mind climb the ladder and swing open the door. All of their plans for Rich's arm and the WizCo merger are still in there, scattered around and discarded in old notebooks, so one of them has to go back and retrieve them at some point. It just hurts a little too much at the moment. "You made your thoughts on us being just friends very clear last time."

"Because that's what we are, right?" she asks, trying to get him to look at her, shifting her weight on the bench so that her entire body is facing him. "You mentioned the other night that you and I have different ideas of what counts as friends." That message has been ringing in her head since she first backread the conversation. "Do you want to explain that?"

The public setting they're in right now is an absolute blessing. There aren't a lot of people in but definitely a few couples and groups loitering around, pointing in awe at the floating constellations and avidly reading information panels; if they were somewhere private, or Merlin forbid, in her flat, this conversation would likely have taken a different turn by now. In several ways. "Fine," he nods, turning to face her properly now any facade of civility has well and truly been dropped. If she really wants to hash things out here, of all places, he'll just have to do it with his inside-voice. "If you really think we can go back to normal after what's happened, Holl, then you're deluded. Or cold as ice. Either way, if you think I can just sit back and not care anymore, then- then you clearly never did. Or you wouldn't find it so easy." The words come out through harshly-gritted teeth, and a few darted glances around to make sure nobody's listening, but they fall at the wayside of his irritation once he really gets going.

Holly takes it all in and he's right, of course, but there's a hole in his argument that she's not going to let slide. She hates arguing with him. She has no idea how they were able to avoid having heated discussions like this the two months they were hooking up, but then her eyes dart to his mouth and she remembers that was how. Maybe it's a good thing they decided to do this in the planetarium. "This isn't easy for me either." she defends herself, "It's just that – if we're not going to go back to normal, then what?"

He doesn't miss that look, and it infuriates him how his heartbeat quickens in that moment. This is so stupid. It was only two months, he's had other flings that lasted so much longer than that and yet he never fell this hard for any of them; his thoughts always come back to Holly at the end of the day. Everything always comes back to her. "I don't know," he admits after a second or two, the options cycling through his head and all being as unattractive as the last. "We can't completely ignore each other's existence, that's impossible. And if we can't go back to how we were -" He means the affair, of course, and his voice dips in volume out of instinct. "- then... I really don't know. It's checkmate." Unless one of us leaves again - thankfully he manages to keep that one in his head.

She's quiet. He's right; there's nothing either of them can do aside from feel shitty about what happened between them. That's what they get for being reckless and continuing everything even after the amount of times Holly insisted that it would be a mistake; she should've done a better job at listening to herself because now everything's just horrible. Curiosity killed the cat. "Sometimes I wish all of this between us never happened." she ends up thinking out loud, not realizing how terrible that sounds. "Then we wouldn't be in this mess, and everything would be okay."

Merlin, she really knows how to pick her moments, doesn't she? Holly's lack of filter is something that Donnie's never really managed to get over; she just says what she thinks, regardless of how much it feels like a knife being stuck in and twisted, and maybe he shouldn't be so pissed off at her considering she's not the one who's married with- ugh. But then her words from the treehouse ring in his head, clear as a bell, we are friends, aren't we? and the bitterness returns in full force. Though he's not even sure what he's angry at anymore. Maybe it's just because he misses her. "I don't regret it." Whatever invisible line they might have drawn in the sand, that likely just overstepped it, but it's too late to take back now. And besides - it's true. He doesn't. "I regret what it turned into. But I don't regret what we did."

"I guess I just don't understand why it turned into this." she says, gesturing towards the space between them, sounding hurt. "I get that you do this thing a lot, okay? I don't, but I still don't get why you're making a big deal out of us in particular. You say you're not mad at me but whenever we talk you get upset or passive aggressive even when you agreed that we should end things. You said it yourself we'd have barely made it to Christmas – I just don't understand, Donnie."

His face screws up at the first bit - what the fuck is that supposed to mean, you do this a lot? - but that quickly falls aside when she pulls out the absolute stunner, us in particular. That pretty much confirms the- well, it wasn't even a suspicion at this point, it was the reluctant truth that Holly is nowhere near as attached to this as he is. Or to put it more simply: he's head over heels in love with her and she doesn't feel the same back. Why else would she be so confused? It must be written all over his face how he feels about her, and it definitely was at the treehouse; it was practically pouring out of him then. "I was agreeing with you," he argues, brow furrowing. "I went there will the full intention of just being a bit more careful. You're the one who jumped straight to saying we should end things."

"But you agreed. You didn't even fight for it. How was I supposed to know that's what you wanted?" she says, because he's right. She's the one who suggested they end things. "And it was the logical thing to do anyway – our friends are smart and they would've figured it out within a week. They don't know about you and Lida so they would've assumed the worst and I don't want anyone to hate you." Holly sighs, looking down at her lap. "Look, I know what I'm about to say makes it sound like I didn't give a shit about what happened but I don't regret ending things, okay? I wish we could have a conversation without it being awkward or devolving into a fight, but it was the right thing to do. It was going to end eventually anyway. Whit getting suspicious just sort of... sped things up."

Each word lands a blow but the worst part about it all is that she's talking sense. That's all Holly ever does: talk complete sense, even or especially when it's the last thing Donnie wants to hear. He thankfully manages to keep his face neutral as she delivers her speech, managing to not blurt out something about how she doesn't have to go with what's one-hundred-percent logical all the time or how he actually did try to fight back but she was too busy ripping his heart to shreds- whatever. They're just going round in circles at this point. "Whit doesn't know anything," he says, rolling his eyes a little; the interrogations over Chinese takeaway, though he has no place to be annoyed about them, are annoying; but it's not like her and Dick are going to go rooting through his bin for hotel receipts. "And Lida showing up last night made them back off. That's the only reason I brought her, you know. I didn't want her there anymore than you did."

The only reason? There's a part of her that wants to call him out on obviously being petty or trying to hurt her, but that's cruel so she holds her tongue. "We can't just continue things and then bring her out every time someone gets suspicious." she tells him. She could barely take having to see Donnie and Lida together once without trying to get wasted and going home with a stranger, who she didn't even end up hooking up with because she's in love with Donnie or something. How pathetic. "Speaking of which, how is it fair that I have to sit there and watch you with her and act like everything's fine but the moment I go home with someone you're in my DMs acting jealous?"

"I wasn't acting jealous, I was making sure you were okay," he argues, as if he wasn't practically on fire with irritation when those texts came through about Hillcrest Ridge and the glass of water and the fact that she'd stayed there all day. Yes, he's well aware what a selfish position that is to take, and no, he doesn't care. He didn't marry Lida by choice and everybody in this equation knows that, but Holly seemingly had no problem going off with a literal stranger. "How is it fair? Holly, you knew what you signed up for when we started this." His voice drops to a low hush, especially since the planetarium seems to amplify even the slightest of sounds. "You knew I had other commitments. I thought you could handle that."

So, he wasn't jealous. Fine. Whatever. Guess he really doesn't care. The part about knowing what she was getting into, yeah, that stings because he's right. She knew this was a bad idea, but she still went and offered him her apartment that night three months ago. "Who says I couldn't handle it?" she asks, indignantly. And just because she's petty and hurt, she decides to continue talking even though she should probably shut up. "And you're right, it was stupid of me to get involved with you even when I knew you had 'other commitments'. My bad; I'm sorry for getting annoyed that night. But I was never your fucking girlfriend and I never promised you anything, so you had no right to be irritated I went home with someone else. 'Making sure I was okay?' Bullshit. If that was all you wanted, you wouldn't have been such a dick about how 'Lida had so much fun' and how 'she wants to come next time too'."

Of course this has turned into a fight; he knew this was going to happen the second he agreed to it. And in a weird way, he's glad - it's nice to see her actually show some emotion for once, rather than dead-eyeing him and saying which decision is the most logical to make. But the words infuriate him just as much. "You're the one that asked if she'd had fun. You were looking to piss me off." Merlin, they sound like toddlers, and she wonders why they can't go back to just being friends again. If every conversation is going to devolve into this then surely it's borderline impossible for any semblance of normality to be recovered. "And then a few hours later, you're texting about how you miss me and-" It had been the you're comfier message that had really got him. "Talk about mixed messages."

"So, did you want me to just not miss you then?" she asks, a challenging tone in her voice. "Donnie, you've been one of my best friends since I was fourteen. Did you expect me to be happy that we were suddenly doing the bare minimum of talking to each other? Of course I was sad. I just don't understand why we're being awkward and petty like we went through a break-up or something. We both knew when this started that it wasn't going to be any serious – so why are we letting it ruin us like this? Okay, I get it, we had feelings for each other when we were sixteen and we got curious, but that was it. I just don't want to lose you over something so stupid."

Is it pathetic that the bit of that whole speech that stings the most is the like we went though a break-up part? Probably, but it's not going to stop him from calling her out on it. If she wants to go in all guns blazing, so will he. "I mean, it was basically a break-up," he counters, raising his eyebrows in challenge to match her; the way she talks sometimes makes him wonder just how she actually saw what they were as. It was probably just a quick fix for her, whenever she got bored. "I don't know what else you would call it. Unless you just never saw us as anything more than something to take your mind off of work for a bit. Which- fine, if you did, I don't care." He does, of course, but he's not going to make himself look like an absolute idiot. Well - any more than he already has. "So - yeah. We got curious but we've learned our lesson. Fine."

"How was it basically a break-up if we weren't together? If we were together, that means some sort of commitment, which you've made clear you already had with someone who isn't me." she retorts, sounding bitter and a bit desperate for an answer that'll make everything make sense. Of course she saw it as more than just a quick fix, but she isn't anywhere close to admitting that because that runs the risk of her saying something stupid about how she just wants to be with him and they can figure everything else out later. Which would be a bad idea, especially considering how much Donnie doesn't seem to care at all. "And I don't know what I'd call it, okay? You're right – what matters is that we've learned our lesson and it's over now. I'm sorry for being naive enough to think that you valued our friendship enough to try having things go back to normal, and I'm sorry for not being able to just act like strangers because I miss you too much and see you too often for that." Holly looks at the ground, suddenly preoccupied with her shoes. "I could leave again." she says, quietly. "If you like."

The first point she makes hurts: Holly is one of the only - no, the only person outside of his family who knows just how false and loveless his marriage is. She's the only person he trusted enough to tell. It might not sound like a big deal but one wrong word to the wrong person and it's splashed across the front page of every newspaper and every social media outlet, and his life is ruined. "Do you think me and Lida are some sort of wedded bliss or something? That I'm breaking her heart when I sneak away to see you every other night? It's not like I'm torn between two people here, Holly." He'd choose her in a heartbeat, of course; in his head, he already has, several times over. But then she says all that shit about valuing their friendship and acting like strangers and- leaving again. Donnie hesitates at that, for probably far too long: it flashes across his mind for the briefest of seconds that things would be a lot easier if she just left. Then they really could pretend like it never happened and he could find someone else and fall back into the old routine of picking up whoever he could in bars. No, no, what the fuck is he thinking? She can't leave. He'd miss her too much. He'd be sick. "I don't want you to leave. I don't know what I want."

None of his words even register anymore after she hears him hesitate before telling her he doesn't want her to leave. Holly would do anything for him in a heartbeat, and he's not even sure if he wants her around. The second he hesitates honestly feels like... God, she didn't know a second was capable of feeling that long. She doesn't even know what to say anymore; a couple minutes ago she was ready to fight but now she just feels like someone's ripped her heart out of her chest and she can't feel anything anymore. It's almost funny how Holly used to think she wasn't capable of finding someone she'd feel strongly about enough to consider committing to or anything like that, but of course it's Donnie – it's always been him and she can't have him, not to mention when it comes to him, it's quite literally never been her. "I don't think I can do this anymore," she says, sounding numb. "Just talking to you hurts so much and I don't ever want us to hate each other, so maybe I should just... do a better job of staying away from you. At least for now."

The look on her face does a little to prepare him for something bad coming, but not that. The monotonousness of her voice just makes it hurt even more; she always does this, every time things get hard she goes blank and cold and Donnie just wants to grab her by the shoulders and shake her. Fucking say something that he actually wants to hear for once. But Donnie doesn't do any of that - instead he just swallows thickly, eyes dropping down to the floor for a few moments before going back up to the stars. Merlin, how have they even managed to ruin stargazing, the very thing that brought them together? "If that's what you want," he nods, trying to keep as much hurt out of his voice as possible - how she does that so easily is beyond him. "Then okay."

"This is what I want." she says, mostly to reassure herself than it is to confirm what he said. Her hand moves absent-mindedly to her pocket and pulls out her phone, which she taps once to check the time. "You should probably get going – you have your dinner to go to and... yeah." She hates how pathetic she sounds. She can hear how obvious the defeat is in her voice. She gets up from her seat and tries to bring herself to meet his eyes, but the moment she looks at him it hurts too much, so she looks up at the constellations overhead instead before managing to draw her gaze back to him. "This isn't forever, it's just... Until we both figure out what we want." Well, for her it's more of, figuring out something else to want considering everything she wants is seated right in front of her. She just can't have it. "Bye. Good luck with dinner." she says lamely, before turning to leave.

Florence had invited Luka there one Saturday afternoon. Eden was busy with Vinny and work so she asked Luka. Luka didn't respond and it had been twenty minutes since Florence asked to meet. She figured Luka wasn't turning up. No worries-Florence could entertain herself just fine. She stood there looking up at Mars with a thoughtful expression, holding her olive green purse in front of her and she was ignoring a few curious glances from the people around her. Some recognised her but it was a 50/50 chance.

Clementina only invited others out with her when it was she was in a special mood. The only people she'd count herself close enough to take places were her family, and she already saw them enough at home—when there was time to come home at least. Her hands sat in the pockets of her jet black trousers. What some failed to realize is that one didn't need to wear bright colors to stand out, as long as your outfit was nice... and Clem didn't own a not nice outfit. She was not far from Florence, observing Venus. As much as she had learned about places from all the world, her knowledge of space was limited. She'd go to the moon, though, if it was ever possible. Her attention didn't dolly over to Flo just yet, but she would of been the other fifty that didn't recognize the quidditch coach anyways. Clem wasn't a quidditch fan, nor a fan of any other modern sport.

It didn't take long for Florence to notice Clem, everyone had given her a glance and Flo eventually got curious enough that she turned to see what everyone was looking at. Ah. Pretty girl. Go figure. There was something in the way that the woman (girl was incorrect-she wasn't any less than a woman) that caught her eyes-entranced her. "Venus is so pretty, isn't she?" She asked trying to make conversation, leaning against one of the display signs. Of course, she wasn't quite paying attention. If she did, she would have noticed it wasn't stable enough for Florence and ended up nearly falling over with Florence but Florence caught both herself and the sign before they went crashing and straightened herself up.

"She's my favorite," Clem answered, turning her head around with an expression that almost implied she expected the words that came from Florence's lips; or, as if she knew what she already was going to say. Whether she was referencing the planet or the roman goddess was unknown, but her feelings were the same for both. Luckily for her, she was fortunate enough to witness the entire scene that almost landed into catastrophe. She smirked, but was careful not to look like she was making fun or mocking. "Careful there. Don't want to destroy Mars. You saw the outrage that transpired when it happened with Pluto."

Florence could feel her ears beginning to burn. It was never her face that turned red, it was her ears. She remained perpetually white everywhere else. "Is that still a sensitive topic?" She asked with an airy laugh, before she looked up at the planet in question. "Mars would be very...um...unfortunate. Especially if he's anything like the god of war. Mars is the god of war, right? I'm not the best with mythology and all that. It was my worst class."

"I'm not sure. Maybe it is, maybe not. I don't keep track of anything anymore." Clem brushed it off with a flick of her hand. In all honesty, 2,000 years old or not, Clem was just as bad at keeping track of dates as any average joe. Being immortal allowed her to live through most of history, but it didn't clear up her shoddy memory. "Yes, he is," Clementina confirmed with a forming smirk on her face. She admired someone who could slip in a mention of the roman gods. "I wouldn't worry too much about him though. He's got bigger problems to deal with, but it's better to be careful around the structure just in case." There was a hint of tease in her voice, but, otherwise, she spoke with a sense of seriousness. She usually did about the gods. Well, unless it was late, she was drunk, and hanging out with Constantin at a night club. Then maybe she'd joke around a little for the expense of a good laugh.

Florence didn't quite expect someone to take the Roman Gods seriously and the way she spoke made Florence pause to look at her properly. "You believe in him? Mars, that is. Not the planet," Florence asked, curious. She'd never met someone who believed in the Ancient Roman religion. At least, not outside stories and film.
