Toy walked quickly from school to the Loft he stays in with Seppuku to change his close. He slipped on a pair of new jeans and a black t-shirt before taking off towards the Lounge. Puku-chan, can you meet me at the Lounge? I want you to meet Etienne. He sends Telepathically then switches to send Etienne a message as well. Etie-kun, come to the Lounge please. <3
Seppuku looked up having been disturbed by the message. He got out of bed to get dressed and headed over to the Lounge. He noticed Toshiya and ran to his side, giving him a gentle kiss on the cheek. "Hello, Toshiya. Now, where is this Etienne you've been wanting me to meet?" He glanced around the Lounge carefully.
Etienne had just rolled out of bed when he heard a familiar, gentle voice directing him to the lounge. With a small smile, Etienne quickly continued to get dressed in his usual attire, which consisted of a ripped pair of faded jeans and a black top. Pleased with the way he looked, he headed out the door and into town. No more than fifteen minutes later, Etienne pulled into the Lounge, after having sped the entire way into Raven Black. He left his car and jogged quickly into the lounge, slightly worried that he may have been a little too late. He had a tendency to be 'fashionably late', as he called it. Once inside, it took only a few seconds of scanning the room before he found Toshiya with another male, whom he didn't know. He slowly approached the two with a broad smile upon his face.
Toy smiled to his sire warmly. "He should be here soon." He answered returning the kiss to Seppuku's cheek. He looked around the Lounge as he waited. Finally his eyes settled on Etienne. A smile formed on his lips. "Hi, Etie-kun." He greeted brightly. "That's him, Puku-chan."
Seppuku grinned darkly. "So, you're Etienne, huh? How cute. Let's sit down, shall we?" He moved over to an empty table and sat closest to the wall. "Now, Etienne..." He pulled out a cig and slipped it between his lips. "Tell me about yourself." He lit the cig and waited for a reply as he blew smoke up towards the ceiling-
Etienne nodded with a soft smile, feeling shy for perhaps the first time in his life. He arched an eyebrow at the little nickname Toshiya had thrown at the other man; he couldn't help but chuckle. It was cute what Toshiya could come up with sometimes. He tilted his head as he brought himself to sit on the opposite side as the other male, his hands folded neatly upon the surface of the table. "Errrmmm.." He scratched the back of his head. "There's not much to say.... I used to work for a corporation but I quit that.. I record music and stuff.... but I'm not all that great..." Ettie swallowed nervously. He wasn't used to having to introduce himself to other people.
Toy smiled as he took a seat between Etienne and Seppuku. From his spot he could see both their faces. He nudged Etie when the youth said he wasn't that great. That was a lie. Don't be so nervous, Etie-kun. He encouraged.
Seppuku raised an eyebrow and looked between the two younger males. "Ah, well..." He flicked the ashes in the ashtray and returned it to his lips. "There's more to you than that. Tell me how you met my boy here." He leaned back in the chair and waited.
Etienne smiled briefly as he looked towards Toshiya, quickly turning his gaze as Sepp began to address him again. "We met here... the bartender threw me into his seat after... causing trouble...." With a brief gesture towards Toshiya, Etienne slowly but surely began to relax around the two. He was getting tired of his being tense around everybody in social settings. "We talked here for a little bit before... going to my house.." It took all that was in him to keep from blurting out the events that had taken place that night. Etienne cleared his throat and looked down at the table for a brief moment, a soft pink blush coloring his cheeks as he concealed a smile.
Toshiya absently played with the hem of his shirt as he looked between the two men. He smiled softly when Etienne looked in his direction. A blush formed on his face remembering what happened that night.
Seppuku narrowed his eyes, stared intensely at Etienne before closing his eyes. "Ah, okay. So... What do you plan on doing with my son, Etienne?" He put out the cig and folded his hands over his stomach.
Etienne blinked for a moment, slowly taking in Seppuku's question and analyzing it before even thinking of an answer. He didn't want to make a wrong move here, but he didn't think he had much to worry about. All he planned to do with Toshiya was what he thought would make him the happiest. "Well, I planned on marrying him if everything goes according to plan.." The small bit of wary doubt he held tainted his voice, but not by very much. Etienne wanted nothing more than to be with Toshiya for as long as he could. "That is... if he still wants to.."
Toy looked down at the table then up again. It was still early to say whether things were going okay between Etienne and Seppuku. He looked to Etienne and nodded. "I still want to." He stated.
Seppuku smirked. "Marriage, ne?" He chuckled and shifted his gaze over to a young man by the bar. "Well, like any father... I'm protective over my children." He stated looking back at the two. "He's almost fully powered. My second strongest childe, next to his brother." He gave Etienne a devilish smirk. "I suggest you get crackin' on them powers if you want to see my son in the marriage bed." He grinned and called over the young man he spotted earlier. "Can you get me and my boys here a round of long necks, please?" He winked up at the man, watching him nod before walking off. "Gotta love that Charisma." He giggled.
Etienne half-grinned lazily. "Yeah.." He offered Toshiya a comforting glance and a warm smile to assure him that everything was alright. "I can understand that.. I would be protective over my children as well, if I ever have any..." He shrugged his shoulders in a simple movement that suggested that he wasn't too excited for children, even if he had sired on in the past. "Elizabeth was my only daughter, but she's gone now." A solemn nod was the only thing left on that subject. Etienne wouldn't lie; it had hurt him that his daughter had died, but he had gotten over it soon enough. Etienne chuckled lightly in response to Seppuku's comment. "I assure you, I want nothing more than to be able to protect Toshiya in a time of need.. if we're to be married." He smirked proudly, glancing back to Toshiya and winking.
Toshiya smiled in relief. He hadn't been too sure on how Etienne would take having to wait to get married on account of Seppuku's wishes. Of course Toy wasn't going to object to his sire's wishes. They were completely reasonable after all. He looked up at the the waister then to Etienne and smiled as he looked over to Seppuku. Now things hadn't gone too bad after all. "Puku-chan....what are long necks?" He asked even if it was completely off topic.
Seppuku blinked over at Toy. "Long neck is another name for bottled beer." He glanced briefly to Etienne. "And if you're ready to get married, I assume you're ready to drink as well." Gently, he placed his hand on Toy's arm and gave Etienne a steady gaze. "Hai, I think the only reasonable way to do this would be... have you get fully powered or close to it and have plenty of weapons on hand. The bloodpints... Hai, the bloodpints wouldn't be much of a matter. At least keep over 1000, that way... if you're ever attacked, it wouldn't cost much to necro and get back into a fight." He smirked. "If that ever happens, which... Toshiya, here, has already been attacked once... and..." He leaned closer to Etienne. "I wouldn't get on my bad side, if I were you. Do we have an understanding?" He asked giggling.
