trust in your heart and don't look back [INCOMPLETE]

Who: Riku [silveralli] and Xenmas [gens_duxducis]
When: Friday, around noon. Period before lunch.
Where: From school to… other places.
Rating: PG-13, subject to change.
Warnings: Riku’s been a little fidgety about the surprise Xenmas has for him. It finally comes, and for once, he’s not prepared.

He twisted his torso around, spinning on the tips of his toes before stopping and putting one foot to his side. His waist was twisted so his chest faced another way then his legs, and he performed a simple chaise off of the makeshift stage in the dance room.

Riku picked slightly at the skintight black uniform he was supposed to wear for his dance class with slight distaste. His long silver hair was pulled back in a ponytail, and he pushed forwards to go back into the stage before the intercom crackled. The dance teacher gave a sharp French command, and almost everyone paused. Riku, however, poked his head out just in time to hear his name being called. He made a face before grabbing the hall pass and quickly making his way down the steps.

He gave a slight shiver as the winds nipped at his skin through the thin fabric, and the boy quickly made his way to the main building. Riku quickly went up the two flights of stairs before walking down the empty halls [he made a few faces to people he knew behind the teacher’s backs] before coming to the main office. He walked into the small room, asking the secretary who had come to see him. She turned, and pointed out into another room, which the teen sighed at seeing. Another business partner coming during school hours? He gave her a quiet thanks before opening the door and closing it behind him.

He was surprised--no, shocked--at who was inside.

Xemnas had stood, patiently waiting for Riku to arrive at the school office. When he saw the teen finally walk in, he had to hold back a small smirk at what he arrived in. "You look so surprised; didn't I tell you I would be dropping by?" Then the smirk shone through.

He looked over the human teen's clothing and raised an eyebrow. He had never thought Riku the type for dance classes. Then again, he didn't know Riku that well, either. "We will be out for the rest of the day. I suggest gathering your things and changing before we leave."

Xemnas himself had managed to dress less like a vampire than usual. He wore a pair of black straight-leg jeans, his trademark black boots, and a black button-up dress shirt. It was a bit uncomfortable for him [he was never one for wearing jeans--he preferred slacks or his leather], but anything to keep others from getting suspicious, right? Especially if he was going to be seen in public with the owner of every big-time corporation.

Why was he the one worrying? It wasn't like there were bounty hunters planning on killing him just because he was taking Riku out for a semi-day off.
“You didn’t tell me at school!” he accused, an annoyed flush over his pale features. Riku glared at him, a hand on his hip. Feeling the thin, stretched fabric over his body, he came at a realization and cursed, wrapping his arms around him. The back didn’t have most of its cloth, either. Damn.


His anger quickly melted away as he told him they were leaving. “Wait a minute, you’re… taking me? Where?” His voice was cautious, and although it was apparent that he trusted the vampire [after all, he hadn’t blatantly told him no, hadn’t he? He was fully within his rights to]

Riku couldn’t help but feel a little more at ease at how Xenmas had presented himself. He seemed more like an adult that probably enjoyed the gothic culture then a vampire in a human society. He glanced out of the small window, and frowned. The secretary was still working outside, and he gave a sigh. How had he gotten in here? How had he even known what school to go to?
Xemnas rolled his eyes slightly. "That was the surprise, Riku." His smirk widened a little when the teen wrapped his arms around himself as if hiding his body from the vampire.

"That's another part of the surprise." He raised his hand and moved it in an ushering motion. "Now get going and get your things. We wouldn't want to miss out on the lunch special." Xemnas almost laughed as he placed his hand over his mouth in mock surprise. "Oops, I just told you the first thing we're doing."

Crossing his arms over his chest, he raised an eyebrow at Riku expectantly, further ushering him to go and change.
“You’re weird,” was the last remark the boy mumbled before turning to open the door. He quickly exited, ponytail swishing behind him.

It was a while before he came back, muttering something about having to skip out on his solo as he brushed his bangs from his eyes. His locket jingled around his thin neck, light blue school uniform loose around his hands and waist. It was one size too big; his father had insisted on getting it like that because he grew fast during the year. Over said uniform was Elidor’s varsity jacket, white and blue in its color. He glanced over at Xenmas, as if waiting as he stopped in front of the man. On his way back to the room, he had realized what he was doing.

His father used to do this all the time with him. He remembered listening to his stories as they went out for lunch and then spent time together, in heated topics. His face was almost blank as he said quietly, “You don’t have to do this, you know.”

Riku pulled his hand across his cheek, rubbing it lightly with the jacket’s soft fabric. He knew he just looked like a child, but he knew he was so much more then that. He himself knew he had a barrier around him and it almost never let anyone enter. Now that someone had entered [a vampire, no less], he wasn’t sure how to react anymore.
"You've only just scratched the surface," Xemnas muttered in reply as Riku left the room.

He took the time to look around the small room he had been subjected to waiting in; it wasn't much. But then again, anything smaller than his bathrooms [and even the smallest one was quite large] wouldn't exactly impress him.

His attention snapped back in front of him when Riku finally returned. The first thing he noticed was the jacket in Riku's arms--he had remembered seeing Elidor wearing that almost every time he had seen him. It was then that Xemnas realized just how much Riku looked like his father, even though he had most of his mother's features.

With a small smile, he walked up to Riku and placed his hand on his back, turning him around toward the door. "There are two reasons for this. The first is that I simply want to, and the second is that even if I don't have to, I feel as if I should." As he guided Riku out the door, he paused at the sign-out sheet on the main desk and signed the teen out. "Good day," he called to the staff before leading the boy out of the office and the building and into the parking lot.
Riku gave a quiet noise of surprise when Xenmas turned him around, a small shiver working throughout his body. There was something about this man. There had to be. Maybe it was the tie with his parents that just was pulling him closer and closer, making the teen want to know more. Part of him wanted to get out of this sinking situation, but part of him wanted to know so much more.

He stumbled over the first few steps, catching himself on the railing. The Skymning heir gave a quiet curse, pulling the jacket around his waist and tying it there for the moment. He hated how he usually fell down these thin steps. His seagreen eyes narrowed for a minute before he glanced back over at Xenmas. He was daring him. Daring him to smirk.
Xemnas had of course reached out a bit to catch Riku if he were to fall, but quickly withdrew his arm when he noticed the teen caught himself. He had been about to smirk before Riku sent him that glare.

The vampire just simply turned his head and smirked then instead.

When the smirk vanished, he directed his gaze to the teen beside him. "Shall we get there the easy way, or do you want to walk?"
Riku gave a quiet grunt, lip pouting out before he sighed. "Walk," he stated immediately. "... I don't want to see what kind of car you drive." The teen jumped down the other steps, long hair jumping against his back as he touched ground every other second. Riku paused as he glanced towards the sky, narrowing his eyes. It wasn't going to rain. Thank god.

He gave a slight wince as a brisk wind passed by, and he untied the jacket, pulling his thin arms through it instead and giving a sigh of relief. Warmth. He felt like his father was with him, and instinctively stepped a little closer to Xenmas when he was close.
"Who needs a car when you can teleport?" Xemnas replied with a smug grin as he followed the teen down the steps, then moved into step beside him. "Besides, walking may tire you." Of course, he was only teasing Riku.

When he noticed Riku move a bit closer to him, a small, warm smile graced his lips. Those smiles were certainly rare, especially after Riku's parent's death. Of course, he hadn't been willing to get close to a human since then, either. Riku had better feel damn lucky.
Riku let a small noise of indignation fly past his lips, glaring over at him. “It will not,” he stated defensively, stuffing his hands into his pockets. “… where are we going anyway?” he glanced up at the vampire, rolling up the sleeves over his hands.

Part of him wanted to know if this was a joke.

Was Xenmas really being this nice to him because he wanted to? Maybe there was some sort of part in his parent’s will that told him to be nice to him. Although part of him wanted this to be the case, the other part was hoping dearly that the other was just wanting to do this. It… would make the feeling of warmth in his chest just disappear if the vampire really was being forced to do this.
Xemnas' smile grew just a little at Riku's defensive protests, but it soon disappeared. "Hm... Where are we going? That is actually a good question." He managed to say that with a completely serious expression on his face.

After a few seconds of just looking in front of him, stoic expression the whole time, he finally looked down at Riku and smirked. "We are just going to a little diner down the street. I hope you don't mind how low-class that may be."
The Skymning heir stared for a minute with a shocked expression on his face, reading as 'you didn't fucking plan?!' before he spoke again. He let out a breath of relief, before smiling. "Nah, I don't mind," he said quietly, glancing towards the sky.

Riku didn't realize he was getting closer and closer to Xenmas as they walked until he bumped into the man's arm--and then he pulled away quickly with a slight flush of embaressment.
"Good. If you had wanted to go anywhere else, we would have had to go to Lirigon. We would never be able to get in any place sophisticated at this hour without me showing the world what I am," Xemnas said with an almost smug look at the fact that he could quite possibly clear out a whole restaurant just by baring his fangs.

When he felt Riku bump against him, he slowly looked down as the teen moved away. With a bit of a smirk, he looked back in front of him, deciding to play a little 'game'. He started to slowly move towards Riku as the silver-haired teen had done before and eventually bumped into him as well. He didn't, however, move away once he made contact, and upon waiting for Riku's reaction, his smirk stayed planted on his lips.
"Mm, I don't want to know what teleporting feels like anyway," he muttered, brushing some of his hair behind his ear and lacing his fingers together in front of him, hands bumping against his legs as he did so.

When Xenmas bumped back against him, he found a squeak flying past his small lips, face heating up even more. At the squeak, he clapped his hands to his mouth and a muffled groan was heard. What had just happened?! That warm feeling was replaced by a hotter feeling and he gave a grimace, feeling like he wanted to shake his head. What was happening to him? It was so foreign.
"Oh, it's not all that bad, Riku. It only pulls at your stomach a bit the first few times," Xemnas teased. "After that, you don't feel a thing."

Upon hearing Riku squeak, he raised an eyebrow and chuckled softly. "Well now, if I had known you were going to get so embarrassed..." he trailed off as he reached up to brush a few bangs from the teenager's face with a smile. He could tell that there was something going on in Riku's mind, and it was something definitely interesting...
"Still wouldn't like it," he stated with slight 'hmph', one hip going to the side in a peeved manner.

Riku's seagreen eyes widened when Xenmas brushed his bangs from his face, and he gave another squeak, stumbling back over his feet in surprise. The boy flailed for a minute before starting to fall, wincing as he was going to hit the hard concrete [and probably get a nice tire to his head, too].
The moment Riku started to stumble, Xemnas watched for a second to see if he would catch himself. Seeing that he was about to fall, his arm shot out to wrap around the teen's waist. With his other arm, he grabbed Riku's arm, then let go of his waist to move around behind Riku and switched him sides, putting himself by the street. "Perhaps you should be on that side so you don't kill yourself," he said, letting his hand travel from Riku's now opposite arm to rest on the small of his back.
Riku gasped shallowly beside Xenmas, surprised that the vampire had saved him. He was even more surprised to feel small tingles all over, and his back arched a bit when the man touched his back. He tried not to twist around, walking statically. He didn't notice that he was practically holding in his breath. "R-right," he muttered, feeling numb for a moment, a hand on the side of his face.

Riku glanced down at the rather large hot dog on his plate, as well as the stack of fries on the other wide. “… is it just me, or did they super-size everything?” he mumbled, more to himself before looking back at Xemnas’ order. He paused and took his fork, prodding at the bun atop the lightly cooked meat. “… well, I guess elegant taste has changed in the last few years,” he stated with a slight smirk, shaking his head teasingly.

He paused as he started to take a bite of the hot dog, shaking his bangs out of his face after a moment or two. Riku looked over at him and sighed. “…I didn’t mean to make things awkward with that question.” He stated simply, glancing away. “I was just curious. I hear things in the newspapers.”

Why, yes. Riku Skymning was indeed lying. He was rather good at it, too; you had to be in business. However, he was good at lying with non-personal affairs. This?

Way personal.

His seagreen eyes flickered from the ceiling to the window, then to the ground. Riku brushed his bangs from his light eyes nervously. Yes, it was an obvious lie, and his cheeks tinted pink with the realization he wasn’t a very good actor.
Xemnas gave a slight chuckle at the violation of the bun that was taking place. With a smirk of his own, he playfully shooed Riku's hand away from his food. “Yes. And perhaps it’s changed in more than just food as well.” Of course there was a hidden meaning behind that. What it was? Well, that would be telling, now wouldn’t it?

The silver-haired vampire unwrapped his silverware from the napkin and was about to pick up the knife and fork from it when Riku spoke again. A slender eyebrow rose. “The newspapers?”
Riku glanced over at him with blinking seagreen eyes, seeming confused at what he said. It seemed that he had caught the fact that there was a hidden meaning--yet, he didn't know exactly what it was. Instead of asking, he let himself think and took a bite out of his hot dog again, eyes scanning the ceiling.

He almost froze and looked straight back at Xemnas, brushing his long hair back. "Uh... you didn't know you're in the newspapers? The ones issued by vampires, though."
Xemnas shook his head. "I always thought those things were full of nonsense. Besides, as leader, I should already know anything of great importance that has to do with my brethren."

He picked up his silverware and cut off a small piece of meat, obviously not impressed nor disgusted by the taste. Although, the small amount of blood there was happened to be enough for him at the moment.
The teen gave a little shrug. "I guess s-"

He stiffened slightly and glanced outside the window at hearing soft patters. There was rain [drizzle, really] starting to come down from the sky. Riku frowned, tilting his head down. As long as it didn't develop into a thunderstorm, he would be fine. When Riku glanced back, he looked over at Xemnas as he ate. A small shiver ran against his spine.
Xemnas watched Riku as he looked outside; the teen was obviously not that excited about the rain that just began to fall. After he swallowed what was in his mouth, he tilted his head to the side a little. "Something the matter, Riku?" the vampire asked before placing another small chunk of meat in his mouth.

[ooc; gawd, I'm sorry it's so short.]
He shook his head. "I have an umbrella. Practice'll be cancelled if it goes on for any longer, that's all." he stated slowly. Riku almost jumped when he felt a vibration at his hip, glancing down at it. He gave a sigh, running a hand through his bangs. "Well, now something is." he rolled his seagreen eyes.
