She thought it was thoughtful to offer her a ride of her own. She didn't want to be a burden in just accepting it. She never wanted to take anything that she didn't work for.
"How about I borrow it from time to time and when I get mine we can ride together."
She smiled and during some of the car ride found herself signing to the music from the radio. Not loud enough to be annoying but more to herself, more reserved.
As they went shopping. Victoria had a good time, even though they were just shopping. She would make faces as he would point some things out. Specially when he would hold up certain foods she disliked. When it came to something he didn't like she would pick it up and taunt him with it.
"Spinach is good or you. Haven't you ever watched Popeye?"
The shopping experience was longer than expected since the two were having such a good time. When he finished with the last item putting the empty bag with the rest of the pile. Victoria's cupboards where now bulging from everything. Since they didn't plan to stick around the apartment.
He led her back to the car, again they headed on the road. When he posed the question. She thought about it.
"Can we go to the aquarium? There is one on Beach St. I seen a brochure and wanted to go. I never really went to one before."

Damien had enjoyed theyre shopping trip as well. It was a fun experience, though shopping hadnt exactly been his favorite thing to do. She mad eit better though, as spending time with her was sure to do. At least, thats what he was discovering. He thought a moment, trying to figure the streets in his head and where they had to go to get to the aquarium. He took a left down allen blvd and went straight for a while, looking over at her with the classic guy look of 'i hate asking this question', since he felt slightly inadequate but wasnt willing to get lost.
"Your going to have to direct me, i've never been there." He said it with a small apologetic smile, his hand going to the stick shift to put the car in a comfortable gear before asking another question, after she began giving directions. IT was one he was slightly curious about, and it caused him to blush slightly with a feeling of stupidity.
"So...I know this may seem obvious, but its kinda... well... Would we be like...I don know...Together?" He continued on to clarify. "As in, would you be considered my girlfriend, or...?"

To be honest she didn't know where the aquarium was either. Having him stop at a gas station and wait with the car running. She ran inside and then came back out with a map. Getting back into the car without much delay. She opened the map and folded it where she needed the area.
"The guy says if we follow this road it will lead us to Pier 39 and once there he said there's signs all over the place."
Once they were back on the road he asked his question. He fumbled with it, to Victoria it as cute. It would seem that since they both felt the same way that it would be most likely that they were dating.
"How about I call you snookums and you can call me pookie."
She laughed as he seemed to dislike that idea of pet names. She nudged him with her shoulder.
"I believe it does. Unless you feel that your not up for the challenge."
As he pulled the car into the parking lot of the aquarium. Victoria looked at the building. It was highly decorated to show that they were in the right place.

"Pookie? Uh..." You could definitely see the dislike he had for the names- he wasnt one to go down that road, not until he was in his seventees and totally incoherent of his own actions. It was only then that he realized she was just kidding, a little chuckle coming to his lips as she nudged him. Up for the challenge? He puffed out his chest, making himself look tougher.
"Challenge? Please...Your the one whose gonna have the challenge." He would sag back down, taking a few deep breaths from having to hold his breath like that. He pulled into the aquarium, shutting his door and pushing the lock button on his little remote. He put the keys around his nack, tucking them under the shirt since he wore the keys on a key chain type necklace. He waited for her to step up beside him, Blaze wanting to put his arm around her, or to take her hand in his but being unwilling to do so since he never knew who might be around.
He'd wait for her to do it first, then and only then would he be comfortable with it, whether she did it today or later, it didnt matter to him. He'd walk up to the booth, pulling out his wallet and handing over a twenty.
"Can i get- Oh wait" He put the twenty back, taking out a fifty. "Can i get two tickets with the bus and boat tours?" The guy accepted the cash, handing Damien back thirty eight cents.
'Damn this place is expensive...'
He took the tickets, handing one over to Victoria before passing through the gate, the turning doo being enough to fit only one through at a time. He grabbed a map from the little stand next to the door, opening it up while standing next to her, Victoria leaning in slightly to read it as he popped a question.

"Ooo I wanna see the sharks first."
She said as she looked beside him at the map that showed where everything was. Taking his hand she more or less rushed him into the doors and towards the area marked with the sharks. As they went into the entrance the whole area was dark. Reflected light danced from the tanks as Victoria still holding his hand nudged up beside him.
"Kinda dark in here.. Kinda makes you wanna start humming the Jaw's theme song."
She said more in general than direct as she looked at the large glass panes. Looking around there weren't very many people around so she went right up to the glass looking it. Sharks of many species and sizes swam silently around with no knowledge of the out side world.
Releasing his hand she moved closer to the glass her one hand on the wall as she looked upwards towards the light seeing another pass overhead. In a sense she was like a little kid and always enjoyed places like these. She always wanted to come, but never really wanted to come alone.

He almost laughed at the child like glam in her eye, Damien giving a little "oof-" as she pulled him up the steps. A little unexpected tug, but he didnt mind. He walked up beside her, his hand going around her waist as he looked at a shark heading straight for them, swimming up and over the fifteen inch thick glass. It was huge, a monster of the aquarium. It was easily ten feet...no, fifteen feet long. Made him glad they were where they weer and it was where it was. He released her hip, walking a littl ways around the corner to look at a large shark mouth, the bones being huge. The description said something about it being a prehistoric ,outh, and he knew that the body to that had to be at least fifty feet long.
While he stood across the way, another guy, rather large in size though not too big, came up along side Victoria, his buddies laughing a little at the joke they were playing. He turned her around, kissing her quickly and whilling away with a smirk.
"Damn girl...you got some nice lips! Care to do more with them things a little later?"
Damien got immediately pissed, his hands drawing out from his pockets as he walked, menacingly, back to the man standing with Victoria.

Victoria's eyes blazed as she pushed her hands on the guys chest making him back up an turn with a grin to look and give his buddy a thumbs up. Without thinking Victoria's natural reaction flashed forward and she kicked her foot into his backside making the guy take a few steps forward to catch himself as turn and face the broad who just kicked him. His face was red, no doubt angry that she did a thing.
She put her hand back towards Damien as he took a few steps forwards and stopped at her request. The guy almost laughed as he strutted forward to mock Victoria again. Damien keeping his eyes on the friend.
"Don't want your pretty faced boyfriend to.."
He instantly choked as Victoria's fist quickly faced off with his adams apple causing the guy to step a few steps back his hands holding his throat.
Victoria took a step forward shoving her boot into his gut making him double over and without hesitation put her fist into the side of his face making him drop to the floor.
"Keep your disgusting lips to yourself or next time you will need more than your friend to help pick you up."
She could hear murmurs from the few people that were in the dark room. She even made out a cheer for her from a female towards the other end of the room. She watched as the friend would help him to his feet, Victoria then moved towards Damien and grabbed his arm having them walk away from the two.
She cleared her throat wiping the back of her arm on her mouth.
"I umm.. Don't think we should say in that room. We can go see the other smaller stuff...Do you have any gum.."
Her conduct wasn't becoming of her. Her natural reaction of violence wasn't the perfect choice when they were in such a public place. She was glad no workers or security men were around.
Damien cocked an eyebrow at his buddies, pushing up his sleeves to make sure they knew- if they stepped up, he'd fuck their world over. His tattoo chowed on his left arm, the veins running down his forearm as he watched Victoria quickly dispatch of the individual. Well, that certainly gave him reason to pause. It wasnt often you found a girl who could kick ass, and he felt the sudden need to fight her. Not to prove anything to her, but to test her abilities. He had heard the rumors surrounding the previous principal- how he was killed by students. Damienwasnt going to let that happen to her- he'd die before he did. He watched the fellas for a minute longer after Victoria walked by, but decided to leave it there.
Getting your shit handed to you by a girl was enough punishment for Damien's liking. Lucky for that guy, he wasnt the one doing the fighting. He woulda lost a little more then his pride.
He reached into his pocket, pulling out a stick of gum and handing it over to her.
"Damn...here i thought i was gonna need to be a classic knight in shining armor, and you go off giving the guy the beatdown." He grinned.
"I cant even describe how turned on i am right now."

Taking a few sticks of gum, putting one after the other in her mouth, she chewed, before handing the pack back over. Feeling a tad bit better having the fruit favor she saw and water fountain. Taking a detour she took a swag and rid herself of the gum into the waste basket beside it before straitening up and taking a breath in and letting it out slowly.
As he mentioned how turned on he was she couldn't help but smirk and shake her head again nudging him with her shoulder.
"You haven't seen anything yet if that turned you on."
Guys seemed so easy.
Her adrenaline was coursing through her veins and her heart thumped wildly. She hadn't had physical contact with anyone since the incident in the parking lot bout a month ago. She had forgotten how she felt when she fought. Her hand hurt a little which led her to open and close it before rubbing her knuckles. The feeling led her to feel a little frisky but knew she better just take a few breaths to calm down.
He grinned, looking off back the way they had come. There was a crowd of people around there, pointing at him and Victoria. His grinned disappeared.
"I think now is a good time for that bus tour." He took her hand, leading her around a small area of concession stands and up a flight of steps to the bus area, getting in line as the people from the shark exhibit spoke with a security gaurd, explaining what happened. They boarded the bus. Damien giving her the seat that hid her from view. He looked down as the bus drove off, the person who was talking to the security gaurd looking around as though trying to pinpoint where they had gone. He breathed a sigh of relief, the looked back to Victoria. He took her hand, the one she punched the guy with, and rubbed it gently, looking at her as he planted a kiss on the knuckles, then intertwining his fingers in hers before looking off the bus and into the exhibit.
"Where did you learn to fight like that?" He asked quietly, looking down at the little white cubs who seemed to be fighting each other over a scrap of meat.

Sitting on the cold metal of the bus seat she moved close to Damien and felt her heart flutter when he kissed her knuckles.
"I had to..to survive."
Turning her eyes towards the polar bears she couldn't help but smile at the small ones. They were so cute and fuzzy. She just wanted to grab one up and snuggle with it.
"I learned a little here and there. If you were to survive on the streets you needed to know the ins and outs. There was no teacher, there wasn't a class room. It was always in your face, learn as you go. And when you were young like I was fighting was the only way to make money without stealing. I never wanted to take anything that wasn't mine. So I fought."
She looked at him.
"No amount of lessons from a teacher will prepare you for someone that will do anything to prevent you from winning. I've had numerous broken bones and bruises to learn that. Course I was stubborn to. I was the only female around for miles that would street fight. My additude cost me alot of the fights. If I had, had formal training Im sure I wouldn't have the disabilities I do now."
Damien frowned as he listened. So she knew how to fight through experience, and that experience cost her something. He wasnt sure what disabilities she spoke of, since she seemed to move fine and do everything without much complication. He guessed she could have meant mentally, but he didnt exactly want to question her about it, especially today, when they had time to themselves. She was looking away, over the side of the bus, so he leaned over, the two of them being at the back, and nobody was looking at them- they were all doing what she was doing. He placed a little kiss on her neck, then kissed her ear lobe, trying to be a little playful and lighten the mood, perhaps get a little rise out of her.
He would smile afterward, leaning back in his seat once she made to turn around and look the other way, acting like he didnt do or see anything, and was just watching the animals. He would turn and look at her, his face innocent.
"What? Why you looking at me like that?"
He'd do his best to keep his face straight, without a hint of guilt, as though he didnt know why she was looking at him.
"Oh, is that a challenge?" He said, breaking off his little innocent look into a charming grin. If she wanted a war, she would get one. He liked little games like that. It was fun. He felt the little squeeze on his hand as his smile faded lightly, but not because of anything wrong. He looked at her face, her eyes staring into his, and began having thoughts he wasnt exactly sure of. He never really had a serious girlfriend, and lookking at her it kind of scared him. What kind of man would he be? Would he be able to support her with everything, and stand by her side no matter what? He wanted nothing more then to make her proud and never let her down. Could he really step up to the plate.
He sighed, his face going a little normal-like as he face forward, trying to get both those thoughts and the thought of her soft, sweet tasting neck off his tongue. He wanted more...but he wanted to wait too. How long could he go on with that? He didnt know, but it wasnt a war he planned to lose, if she thought to make it into one.
He looked back at her, the corners of his mouth tugging his lips back into a caring smile. He placed his forehead gently on hers for a second before leaning back again.
"Your very welcome, it was a daunting task, but i was happy to take up the reigns." He gave a little wink, wondering where they were headed next, and when she wanted to get off the bus, the seals passing below.

"Your doing very good job of it."
She closed her eyes for a moment as his forehead pressed onto hers. She felt his breath on her face. Her hand moving to his cheek holding it there a she pressed her lips against his. Moving her body more towards him as she pressed her lips a little harder her other arm moving to his side as held it there her fingers tightening around his sweater.
Parting his lips with hers, she wanted to explore his mouth. The warmth of his breath, his soft hair as her fingers moved to the dark strands.
She didn't care about any animals at that moment. The bus continued to move without a care.
Damien kissed her back just as deeply, after her pulling away, he looked about quickly, and noticing nobody was looking, turning back, staring at her for a moment before leaning back in, his tongue moving into her mouth with great car, sliding over her tongue and gently exploring her mouth, kissing her in probably the deepest they had shared yet. He kissed her chin when he moved for a breather, his left hand releasing her hand and pressing on the seat to help support him as he leaned down, using his teeth to gently bite the side of her neck, ending the small tug with a kiss over the area, his right hand moving to the left side of her waist and pulling her gently, giving him a little more of a hold.
He was dead quiet in his movements, not one head turning from the animals as he did it, not one eye even glancing at the two who sate, perfectly alone, in the back of the bus, the seat to the side and front of him empty, most people wanting to be near the front. He gripped her shirt, slightly irritated at the lack of contact with her skin but also unwilling to pull it out in public. Probably a good thing- skin contact of that nature probably wasnt in his best interest right now.
He could barely form a thought as it was.
He moved back to her mouth, giving her three kisses, each time being quick, before he gave her another deep one. Then he would pull away, breathing a little deeper, a small look of shock on his face.
He needed to keep his mind on the fact that they were there to view nature, not make-out on the bus tour. Still, with her sitting this close, looking at him full of care- he couldnt help it. He continued trying to regain his breath, pulling his will together to try and finish out the ride in peace.

Her eyes opened softly looking into his as he apologized her hand still on his side.
"It's okay. I wanted you to do that."
She smiled softly before she tucked in her bottom lip and sucked on it savoring the taste of his lips.
"Its probably my fault that you keep apologizing. It's been a long time since I felt wanted and I just, can't help myself. This seems to be what Ive been missing for a long time and its like a drug that can be addicting. I should be the one apologizing to you."
Looking around she could see the building they first came from come into view. Their bus ride almost coming to an end. Kissing the end of his nose, she straitened herself back in her seat, taking his hand in hers and interlacing her fingers with his. Her heart thumped so loudly she could have swore he could hear with his own ears.
The brakes did a little squeak as it came to a complete stop. They both rose and followed the group of people exiting the bus. Returning to the main building with her hand still holding his she leaned her head on his shoulder and held his upper arm with her free hand.
He took a deep breath, looking down at her and thinking for a moment. Why was he doubting himself? She seemed to want him just as much as he wanted her? Was he holding himself back, physically and mentally, because he was afraid to let someone in and risk the pain? He was never one to shy from pain- but this was new, and different. Having her there, holding onto him...it made him feel needed. Not to mention the fact that she was superb in every way. Why him, though? Was it just the alluring factor of a Student with a teacher? His youth? He didnt understand why he should be here with her, and not someone more worthy. He needed more confidence in himself. He guessed that he just needed more experience. It was daunting to be with an older woman.
When he kissed her, he knew- she was far more experienced then him.
Not to say he was bad at what he did, since at least he didnt clack teeth with her, but he felt a little out done, and worried what would happen when things turned more serious. He pushed the thoughts away for the umpteenth time that day, looking down at her and giving her hand a gentle squeeze.
"Well, since we spent a lot of time on the bus not looking at the animals, we could continue on here. Or we could go by and grab up a movie and head back to your place. Up to you really."
Post by Victoria Alexander on Feb 9, 2009 4:09:05 GMT 1
The thought of leaving only fueled the desire for somewhere more private. Stopping she looked around.
"It might be advisable since security might still be looking for me."
She gave an uneasy look. She half expected a security officer to waltz right up to them both and ask them to leave the premise. She felt a little ashamed that she let herself get so out of hand, which showed as her cheeks were a little flushed.
"I hope its okay. I know that we really didn't see much. Since we are so close to the beach, do you think it will be safe to go down there, we can talk if not we can always get a movie."
She moved in front of him, wrapping her arms around his torso, tilting her chin up, he was about a head taller than she was and it showed as she looked up at him.
He finished the sentence, meaning alone in more ways then just a physical sense. He didnt know why, but the time they had spent together was more impersonal, something they could do anytime. He felt the need to just be with her alone, and have time with just them. Even if they just went for a walk on the beach or to the movies, he would gladly accept it. Anything for her. Thats what he felt like at that point in time. He smiled again, his cheeks getting strangely used to the expression. "We could actually go to a movie instead. I doubt many people will be there at one in the afternoon. They rarely are on saturdays- its mostly at nights." It was a suggestion only, Damien shrugging after saying it.
"But the beach sounds good too. Don't worry, i'm not terribly disappointed about leaving." He winked. "I was a little disappointed about leaving the bus, but i mostly just want to spend time with you, no matter where it is. Be it here, the movies or the beach. It's up to you."
He wanted it to be her decision- this was her day. He'd be here for all of it, if she wanted him to be.
