She blinked confusedly as he began to rattle on, mentioning names like Plato and Nietzshe. She quite frankly had no idea who those people were… she guessed they were philosophers of some sort.
She cocked her head as he led her to a door, and told her that he got her a few things. She raised an incredulous brow and opened the door, turning on the light to find a room… full of dresses. She turned, looking back at him. “Sweetie, you didn’t have to…” she rubbed the back of her neck, her cheeks flushing pink.
Of course she was thankful. nobody had ever gotten her anything… well, anything before. She felt kind of guilty though, some of them looked really expensive. But like he said, she couldn’t refuse them. not that she had planned to. that would just have been rude. finally, she smiled. “But, uh, thank you. this is great.”
"Nothing?" Marius had estimated that perhaps she was unused to certain human interactions, but he had not at all imagined that something as simple as getting a gift was unknown to her. Human nature was both to give and get, though true altruism was rare. "Well, I’m sorry. It is a great pleasure, I think, to be on the receiving end of a gift."
His hand motioned to the things lying carefully placed, “These things can wait, though, I think.” He placed his hand gently on her lower back to guide her out of the room, back into the hallway where they could make their descent down the stairs.
"Now, we must make you comfortable… whatever the protocol. The theater has reclining seats. Also, do you snore?"
She followed him out of the room, her face still a bright pink. “It’s alright. it’s just a bit new, is all. nobody’s ever given me a gift before..” she smiled, following him down the stairs.
did she snore? that was a good question. “Uhm, i don’t think so, no.” she stepped in front of him, stopping him with a hand placed lightly on his arm. “Protocol? honey, you’re being far too uptight about this. there’s no protocol at all. the most important thing is that we both have fun. so take it easy, hm? just take a breath… or whatever it is you do. no need to impress anybody.” she grinned, taking his hand and leading him the rest of the way down the stairs.
"Maybe the movie can wait? we could play a game, if you want. do you know any card games?"
