"It doesn't have to be a lot. I don't want to spend months in either state, what I had in mind was something like a few hours. A maximum of 24-48. You're right. Four could be a bit overwhelming, and you've never been. That was something I should have asked you first. We can do just one for now. Maybe after that, if you're still interested we can do another one. Is there any place you want see first?"

"Florida's supposed to be sunny, right? So maybe there?" she suggested.

"Maybe there? That isn't very convincing. I think you would love the place in Key Largo." Rex smiled, nodding his head. "Yeah, I think Florida would definitely work for this trip. There is a museum on I want to take you to, and some other things I want to show you. They are pretty far apart, but I think you'll like the view you get in between."

The idea of white sand beaches hand-in-hand with Rex sounded like something she would love. "So how do we get there?" she asked.

"The traditional route was Portkey, I'm working on something else now, considering. As a last resort we might actually fly.You don't have a fear of planes do you? We don't leave immediately, so no harm done if you. We can work around it. And I think that gives you a good amount of time to be both godmother and girlfriend."

 – 18:01, August 2, 2014 (UTC)

She laughed. "Oh! My previous experience led me to believe you had found some way to pack up all the things I would need. Portkeys would be the option I'm most comfortable with."

Rex grinned, shrugging a little. "Your previous experience, as always, is spot on. I don't want to be so predictable. Not only that I don't want to have something for you that you didn't like, or worse yet something you didn't want. But of course, if you want to be unburdened by decisions I can take care of it."

"Everything on the other side of the pond is ready and waiting for us. I wanted to give you some time with Holly and the baby, Lizzy. Unless you were ready to hop to sooner than later, I was thinking about a week? Maybe more, maybe less."

"A week sounds good," she said. She eyed him playfully. "Did you have something in mind besides telling me you're going to whisk me off to someplace sunny?"

"You know I've always got something going on in mind." He winked. "Since the start of our whirlwind romance we have been out and about. You know? They way we used to. I wondered if you wanted to take a walk with me? The kind where we happen upon something along the way."
Hope Black

"Wherever the wind take us? We've done Hogsmeade, which doesn't mean it can't be done again. What about Tottenham?"

Hope smiled and nodding, linking hands with him. "Anywhere we go together is sure to be an adventure."

"You definitely aren't wrong about that." Rex lead Hope out of the shop locking it up behind them. Holding her tightly in his arms he apparated them to Tottenham Court Road.

2 days later[]

Going over his mental checklist for a second time, Rex felt himself getting anxious. He started wondering if Hope was going to show, and he slowly started to psych himself out. To take his mind off the possible down side of his surprise trip falling apart before it even started he did what he always did. He grabbed a little paint and an easel to take his mind off of reality.

Knowing she didn't need to knock anymore, Hope Apparated straight into the Arthouse. "Hi!" she said. "Sorry I'm late... I, uh, was trying to make sure I had... everything..."


Rex wb

 – 18:27, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Rex laughed off the last bit of nervous energy seeing Hope materialize in the front of him. "Better late than never, I was starting to think you changed your mind and didn't tell me." Pushing the easel and his paint aside, he grabs a towel from off his shoulder to carefully wipe off any stray paint from his hands.

"I'm sorry!" she said, biting her lip, eyes a little worried. "I didn't mean it that way. I should've said something. I was trying to find the right stuff to wear and..."


Rex wb

-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 18:32, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

"No, no. It's fine." Rex responded as reassuringly as possible seeing the worry in Hope eyes. "You showed up. That's all that matters. And whatever you picked out I'm sure is going to just right."
Hope Black

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 18:33, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hope breathed out the last of her own anxiety, and smiled. "I just wanted to pick stuff that... that I thought you'd like."

"That shouldn't have been a hard choice, and you should have known I would say this. I can like just about anything when it has to do with you." He winked.

She blushed a little. "Well, it's special. And I wanted it to be just right."

 – 18:42, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

"So do I." He smirked. "What you wear doesn't have much to do with that. I was going more for how you feel, emotionally." He chuckled asking himself why he felt the need to say emotionally.

 – 18:47, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

"My goal is to keep you that way. I want you to enjoy yourself while we're gone. I don't want you to be excited to come back home, but every trip has to come to an end."

"I have no troubles believing that you will fulfill that aim," she said with a wide grin.

"When I start to doubt myself I'll feed of your energy. Just consider me a vampire. The good kind. I won't bite unless you ask me to."

Hope giggled again, not being able to imagine any kind of scenario where she wanted to get bitten.

"No second thoughts," she said smiling. Truer words had never been spoken. She was very excited to spend some time with Rex.

 – 19:10, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

"Come here you." Rex tossed the towel on his shoulder over toward the sink, using the same arm he reached out for Hope as he began moving closer and closer to her he pulled an envelope out of his back pocket.

Hope moved closer to him. "What's in the envelope?"


Rex wb

Rex Shaw Painter (Tattooist)
-“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” Mark Twain

 – 19:16, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

"It's a secret." Rex lifts the tab of the envelope with one finger showing Hope the usually large key inside. "It's a portkey. I wanted to do this before we left." Rex wrapped his arm around Hope, and pulled her close. He smiled at her genuinely happy before he leaned in to kiss her.

 – 19:17, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hope breathed a sigh of relief, for she had wondered if it was something to do with a Muggle plane, like he had also suggested. She happily accepted his kiss, allowing herself to melt into him.

Rex could have stayed in this moment forever, he had so many plans for them and it would have been a shame to miss the opportunity to see Hope in a completely new environment. He pulled back with a quiet sigh. "I asked you this barely a minute ago, but I swear this is the last time. Are ready?" A cheeky smile came across his face.
Hope Black

Rex took Hope's hand and positioned under the envelope, slipping the key out and into the air. As it touched both of their hands they vanished from site.

Returning Home[]

Staggered into the old and familiar paint smell of the Arthouse, he looked a little tired but he was wearing a wide smile. He passed through the doorway and turned back to look at Hope. He hadn't wanted to ever leave not after he had gotten to see Hope in what was quite literally a whole new light.

Hope walked in behind him. "What time is it?" she asked, quite tired. "I mean, like here? I'm still operating on Florida time, I think."

"Time?" Rex would glance around and think to himself may be should out a clock up. "Party time? " He laughed. "I'm not sure exactly. If I had to guess I would say we are pretty close to tomorrow. Somewhere near midnight?"

 – 01:04, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

Hope giggled. "Is it really that late?" she asked, somewhat in disbelief. "I guess that validates my exhaustion a little. I was going to just attribute it to the travel. But if time is on my side, I'll go with that, too."

"I was never good a telling time based on feeling, or guessing based on where the sun was or wasn't. Maybe, and just maybe. I was making that up to see what you would say in response. See if you'd be willing to spend a little extra time with me even though you're probably getting close to needing some you time. "

Rex wb

 – 01:16, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

Rex sighed quietly, happily. "You wouldn't thank me if you didn't actually enjoy it would you? If you never want to go back. If we did anything that you didn't like. You would tell me." He nodded as if his bobbing head would give him a certain answer. "You wouldn't let me walk away thinking I had done something marvelous when it was barely sub par?"

 – 01:22, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

"Our trip didn't go exactly as I wanted it to. There were more places I wanted to show you, and I wanted our last day in Florida to be something like a grand farewell. Seeing the smile on your face, and being able to gaze at you bathed in the sun and moonlight did make up for the plans that fell through."
Hope Black

 – 01:25, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

Hope went a little pink. "Like I said, it was all wonderful..." She didn't really know what else to say.

 – 01:29, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

Rex flashed a small seeing the pink in Hope's face, he walked over to her and held both of her hand in his. "I had this image of how I did this in my head. This moment is not what I had in mind, but you've shown me that any moment where I have the chance to spend even a few minutes with you, is absolutely perfect."

 – 01:38, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

"Wait for it. ..." Rex gave Hope one of his mischievous shrugs and smiled wider. He reaches into his pocket and retrieves a small turquoise box wrapped with a white ribbon. Inside the box is smaller black velvet box. "Before I met you I was wearing a mask for the world to see, and I thought I would be wearing it forever. You were wise enough to see right through it. You were woman enough to come to me, when I wasn't man enough to come to you. I made the mistake of letting you walk away, you were stubborn enough not go too far." He gets down on one knee, and never breaking eye contact with Hope he opens the box revealing a beautiful, sparkling diamond engagement ring. "Hope Annabelle Finch, I stand before you head over heels in love with you, and I ask will you make me the happiest, the luckiest man in the world? Will you marry me?"

 – 01:42, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

Hope felt tears of joy spring in her eyes as she put one hand over her mouth. She moved that hand from her mouth to her heart nodding. "Yes! Yes of course I will! Yes!"

He felt stupid for a moment and he wasn't able to move. By Hope's third yes, he slipped the ring onto her finger, popped up and scooped Hope up into a rather warm, loving hug. "I'm sorry I don't think I heard you. What was that you said?"
