Jason chuckled as he came out of the pantry with two packages of popcorn. "All the butter, got it." He tossed the first package into the microwave before grabbing a few sticks of butter from the fridge, but paused after that when Conrí started mentioning choosing a movie. "I've got a better idea. How about," he created a Doppelganger before walking over to the wolf-king, "we let him take care of the popcorn and tea, and we'll pick out a movie together?"
As the clone continued to pull out bowls and steep the tea Jason led the way back into the living room, heading over to the media cabinet the television was on. It had six large drawers in it, and Jason opened them all to reveal each one had nearly sixty movies in it. "As you can see, we've got quite the collection. There's something for just about every taste here, and I'll watch just about anything, so feel free to pick whatever catches your eye. Other than me, of course."
Six characters, written by five alters... What could go wrong?
Conrí laughed with Jason, and then started when the Doppleganger showed up. "I'm not getting used to that anytime soon." He decided to counter or shut down the comeback before it started, "And, before you recommend that we'd need to figure out what 'much closer' is first." As he said this, he wagged his finger in Jason's face, winked, and stuck out his tongue. When Jason asked if they could pick out a movie together, the wolf boy nodded and grabbed Jason's hand without much hesitation.
Holding hands with Jason, he walked back to the cabinet and gaped at the sheer volume of movies. When he heard Jason wasn't an option, he sighed and clicked his tongue. "Well, there goes my first option." As a follow up to the retort, he quickly kissed Jason's cheek and then backed away, a confident smirk on his face.
He looked over the action movies, and one about a person in a kilt with blue face paint stuck out to him, but, he was suddenly taken with the horror movies. He ran a hand across the movies, and picked out one that had a simple ring on it. "Do you scare easily?" Conrí asked this as though he wouldn't be the one clinging to Jason and closing his eyes and shaking. Thinking for a minute, he looked at Jason, and also picked out the first movie that caught his eye. "Why don't you pick what looks good to you, and then we can see what kind of compromise we can make?" The would be king obviously said this to cover for his bluff about not scaring easily, though, he knew this plan had a major flaw.
Jason grinned at Conrí's affection before closing in to claim a kiss for himself as the wolf-king browsed the titles. He wasn't surprised about his first pick at all, but before he could tease him about picking the movie just because of the accents he picked another much more unlikely movie. "You do realize you're talking to the one that scared you enough that you threatened to ram your keyblade up my ass, right? I lived with the Heartless for a year. Now that was terrifying, at least at first."
He seriously doubted that Conrí would last even halfway through the horror film, but before he could call his bluff he felt a familiar tug at his heart just moments before Lucia's voice. "Guys, I hate to interrupt, but we've got some problems here. A woman with a god level aura keeps popping up and only I can see her for some reason, and someone's going after people associated with Tori." Jason immediately grew serious, glancing over at Conrí before giving him a sad smile. "Sorry, lululf, looks like our date just got cut short. We're on our way Lucia. What did you figure out about Tori?"
As he opened a Corridor to Lucia's communicator Lucia caught them up on the conversation after they had left and what the current situation was before ending the connection. Jason summoned his proper armor and double checked that Dusk Shroud was on his back before turning to Conrí once more. "I'm going to go ahead. Once your through be ready for a fight." With that he dashed through the Corridor.
Six characters, written by five alters... What could go wrong?
Conrí fought the urge to kiss Jason back. It wasn't exactly easy, and then, he realised that Jason was likely to call his bluff, given his reminding Conrí of their first round of wits. The wolf boy chuckled a little, but didn't say anything. Instead, he looked down and away from Jason and then decided to look him directly in the eye. He was going to face whatever was coming.
Before Jason could do anything, The would be king felt a pull at his heart that nearly made him grab his chest. He looked in confusion at Jason, but, if he felt it, Conrí couldn't tell. Right as he was about to ask what was going on, he heard Lucia's voice calling them to action. He listened to Jason ask about what they found out about Tori, which made the wolf boy extremely uncomfortable. "Master's calling," he said with an exaggerated sigh and a wink to Jason.
As Conrí saw Jason open the Corridor back and summon his proper armor and weapons, something in him clicked. He simply nodded, but, on the inside, he was shaking as Jason left. Don't die...please don't die. The fear gripped him harshly, and he held his head in his hands.
A king rises to his duties!
Fen...I know. I know, but he's...the most important one of those I have right now, and...
Your Master called you. Your mate instructed you to be ready, so, calm yourself, pup, think, and then go.
The shaking stopped, and Conrí glared into the portal. "Fen, you go before me. If this has to do with Tori, then Spirits might be involved again, and, I'll need your eyes." The icy wolf popped out of nowhere and dove into the portal. Conrí grit his teeth, summoned Lugus and charged at the portal. You're ruining our date. That's your mistake, peasant.
