University life had been a really good and interesting experience for Jae, he spent a lot of time here, mostly in the library, studying and just surrounding himself with information. Jae felt like since he came to Evermore a lot had changed for him, learning to live alone had been an adjustment at first because he had to do his own laundry and dishes, food didn't make itself so he had to learn to make sure he always had something to eat and while he was practically living at Han's now, he definitely felt like that independence had a good effect on him.
But the study was also important to him, he got the freedom to explore his writing and how to expand it, to completely immerse himself in stories and their meanings and generally feel like he was connected with something he had always had a natural talent for. There was a lot of pressure to do well of course, that was the nature of the way he was raised but he finally felt like he had some independence from his parents and the ability to make decisions for himself. So he did his best not to waste the opportunity and use as much of his education as he could, so if there were extra classes he could take or further study he could do, he tended to try and indulge in it. Not to the level where he didn't have a life outside of university but he could definitely be found in the library till late.
It was about 3 pm in the afternoon and he didn't have any late classes today so he was wandering the aisles of the library looking for some stories to analyse for one of his papers, except he wasn't able to decide which one he wanted to use and so he had about 7 books stacked up in his arms ready to carry back to his table in the hopes of being able to pick one out after reading a few pages of each. He had just managed to balance all of them steadily enough to make his way back to the table and took a deep breath as he started the walk.
But of course, his clumsiness was something that no matter how hard he tried he couldn't shake and he didn't see the petite girl coming in the other direction before it was too late. With how tiny she was Jae didn't even realize there was anyone there until his stack of books went flying and he tripped over one of them until he found himself on the floor, rubbing his head because he whacked it against the shelf on the way door and then noticing the young female who had totally just ran into "Oh my god, I am so sorry, I probably should have realized that a bunch of books and this generally unbalanced guy wouldn't work but" he pulled an apologetic expression as he looked back at her.
She was excited to see his picture and confirm it herself if he was really all that just like what Jae had described him as. Of course, Taealha knows beauty is subjective and to her, everyone is just as beautiful in their own way but she could also be nosy to see her new friend's boyfriend too. Just like anyone else. When he showed her both pictures to represent both demeanor, the human gaped and covered her mouth with her hand, shamelessly gawking at him. "You were not exaggerating at all…" because he was both cute and sexy. "Are you sure he's the same person though? How could someone have this much duality? Are you certain he doesn't have a twin or something?" She continued to gush over him and slapping his shoulders playfully, saying how lucky.
"Keep going, reach for the moon or the stars and maybe you'll end up finding yourself seated in a rocket" she advised, it's always nice to dream as big as you could, so that even if you fall short to it, it would still be a big achievement. Taealha wasn't choosy when it comes to the company she'd have but girls would probably do it better than guys, considering all the guys she has been with has been a total bust. "I think the better question is to ask whether I have a celeb I don't crush over, I swear I drool over a lot of celebs…" she doesn't even try to hide that she squeals silently or fangirled on her own watching models walk the runway. "Who doesn't have their own annoying quirks right? I think that's why it makes it worthwhile… God that sounds so cute, I'm jealous of you" she playfully glared at him and crossed her arms, how she wished she had someone like that too.
When he pointed out jokingly how she couldn't be a housewife, she pressed her lips to form a pout and nod, "Pretty much… I'll leave the cooking to my significant other so let's hope I find someone who can cook better than me." Or they could eat out, that works too. "An epic love… better place your bets in Jae, I'm gonna get that person one day and you should pick up a clock to time how long it takes for me to get them" she giggled. She rolled over the bean bag and pointed to her tummy, "I'm hungry… we should go eat something…"
Jae had an excited expression on his face as he proudly showed Taealha the photos he had of Han, it wasn’t exactly a secret that the dhampir was proud of the man he had chosen to call his boyfriend and he enjoyed getting to show him off “Not that I know of...I would be very offended if it turned out there was really two of them all along” he giggled shaking his head when Taealha slapped against his shoulders “I am lucky” he murmured softly, he felt it every time he was with Han, he couldn’t believe how lucky he was to have someone like him, someone who supported him wholly and looked like a model that just walked off a cat walk.
It felt nice to have someone who he had just met encourage him to reach for his dreams, he had been faced with a lot of nos and you’ll never make its before that sometimes it felt disheartening to tell someone what he wanted to do “I hope so...I don’t know why but it feels like this is what I’m supposed to do” it all felt so natural to him, writing, coming up with stories and characters, he enjoyed it a lot. “Damn...do you not even keep a top 50 list?” he laughed softly, everyone had a list like that right? Even if they only had it in their mind, Jae could list at least 20 celebrities off the top of his mind that he liked. He blushed slightly when she glared at him, he wasn’t trying to make her jealous “We have to find you someone before you end up shooting me with those lasers” he pointed towards her eyes and laughed softly.
“So cooking needs to be added to the required list” he teased and nodded pretending to take notes as though he was making a list of what she needed for her ideal type. Jae propped his hand under his chin when she asked him to make a bet about when she would meet her epic love “I’m going to be optimistic and guess within 6 months you’re going to meet someone who makes your heart flutter like never before” he grinned playfully. When she said she was hungry he raised his brow and realized a lot of time had passed, he looked down at his watch and smiled “If you like Korean food I think there was supposed to be a street market tonight in the city square, we could check it out” he could definitely use some food.
Both Han and Jae are attractive, nobody would be able to refute that even if you would say beauty is subjective. While Jae looks like an ethereal man who just came straight out of CGI, Han looks like the type of high school crush you always find at some point of your life, the guy who didn't know he was even popular. "I mean if there are two of them, I might have asked you to introduce me to the other twin" she teased, who wouldn't like a looker? Especially when Jae seemed to rave about his good personality too. That's killing two birds with one stone. "Ugh I'm jealous… you two look good together, two equally good looking people with what? Heart of gold? That's not fair. You can't be both good looking and kind hearted… that doesn't work. If you take all of that, then what is left for the rest of humanity?" Was she being dramatic about it? Very much so.
It was nice to see someone reach for their dreams, she had been in that spot too, "Go for it, never forget your own motivation. And most importantly, don't do it for others… do it for yourself. That way your motivation would have a scrape if anything happens. I get the feeling, I'm only here because of my full scholarship" and it wasn't easy to get it either. She had to really study hard and graduate not just in the first class but to also be awarded the summa cum laude title. "I probably should've stopped the moment I finished my bachelor's degree but since I was already working at a lab, I thought increasing my qualifications to masters would be a good opportunity." It was surprising to hear she doesn't even keep a list of the people she's attracted to. "I mean… if you asked me to lost top 50 people then maybe I could" she blushed, plenty of them are really ones she could name.
"Yes please, find me someone. I don't mind blind dates but… I want to find someone who doesn't end up trying to get into my pants on the first date please." It was tiring when she came across those people. "If my partner could cook for me, I will forever love them honestly…" When Jae guessed 6 months, the human scrunched up her nose and scoffed playfully, "Sure. And if I don't, what are you willing to bet, hm? Let's make a bet, I'm ready for anything… as long as it does not require me having to harvest my organ." Her eyes automatically lit up at the mention of the street market, "It's been a while since I've had Korean… come on, let's get there before others do. I'm not in the mood to queue." She had already grabbed a hold of his hands, pulling him up with her.
He laughed softly when she said she might ask to be introduced if Han had a twin “He really is handsome huh?” Jae blushed slightly, he always noticed the way people would stare at Han when they passed on the streets as though they couldn’t believe someone could look like that “Oh come on, I’m sure we have things that balance us out...I mean I’ve never been great at academics, much to my father’s dismay” he commented and shrugged “Though Han is really smart so I can see your point when it comes to him” Han had his own flaws too though, they just weren’t things he was going to expose to someone who didn’t even know him. “Besides...you check the pretty and smart box and you don’t seem like the mean type either” he commented thoughtfully.
He nodded slightly when she told him to keep reaching for his dream “Honestly my main motivation is just to...not have to go back to live with my parents” he spoke softly and pressed his lips together “I have to work hard enough so I can be independent from them” his father was someone who would always have control over his life if not and he knew that would be damaging to his happiness. “A full scholarship is amazing though, you must have worked really hard to get it” he was honestly a little envious because he would never be the person smart enough to get one “It sounds more like you actually enjoy studying” he commented thoughtfully and grinned slightly. Jae raised his brows and grinned “Well at least give me a few names, I’m curious now” he teased softly.
Jae wrinkled his nose slightly when she said a lot of people tried to sleep with her on the first date “Hardly a way to make a good impression” he commented and shook his head slightly, it had never really occurred to the dhampir that you would try to use someone like that but he supposed he was more of a hopeless romantic “So someone who can cook...pretty….and doesn’t want to sleep with you on the first date” he commented and chuckled, it didn’t seem impossible to find someone like that. “How about dinner then, whoever loses has to buy the other one dinner at a fancy restaurant” perhaps he was just really hungry right now because before long they were heading out of the secret study place to head out towards the market “What’s your favorite food?” he questioned curiously.
She gave him a look that said ‘duh, have you seen him?’ and shrugged, “I mean, you’re not one to talk about handsome, you wake up and look in the mirror every morning before going to class. No way you didn’t notice any detail on yourself” she teased, Jae is really a looker, if Han was handsome then she wasn’t sure how to classify the male before her. When he told her they had things to balance them out and mentioned how he wasn’t particularly good at academics, Taealha raised her eyebrows in amusement, “I’d say you’re doing pretty well in your major though, no? Don’t you think so?” She, on the other hand, does pride herself on her academic achievements. After all, she did work her ass off to get that spot on the team and had scholarships helping her get this far in her studies.
Since she’s an orphan, she didn’t have anyone to sponsor her studies nor invest in her, until she caught the eye of the faculty board and was granted plenty of scholarships in exchange for her good grades. “So Han is smart too huh? What does he do?” Now she’s curious. She couldn’t hedge a guess on what field he dabbles in when she saw his picture. He looks artistic but plenty of people do too. The blush on her cheeks was evident upon hearing his compliment, to which she cupped her face in response, “Thanks, well… a pretty face won’t cut it, right? I’m an orphan so I have to be smart if I want to retain those scholarships… I have no motive to be mean, mute remember?” she made the gesture to say she’s mute. She nodded in understanding when he said he didn’t want to go back to living with his parents, “Hard work never betrays you” she reassured him with a soft pat. “I started being interested in biochemistry when I was 16, and it stuck ever since.”
When he asked for a few names, the blush deepened and she cleared her throat shyly before covering her face and throwing herself against the bean bag, shaking her head, “I’ll turn into a whole tomato, I’ll type it instead later…” she couldn’t be serious if she tried to sign them. The human was too used to frat boys and others alike trying to get into her pants before they even established anything, but the female had needs too so she went along with it most of the time. Still, a girl like her longs for a relationship too. “I guess good for them I have needs too” she shrugged absentmindedly. “No? It doesn’t sound too hard to find right?” She didn’t think she was setting that high of a standard honestly.“Fine, a dinner at a fancy restaurant, I can do that, not that I’d lose” she stuck out her tongue playfully and headed out with him, pondering to herself for a bit when he asked what her favorite food was. “Thai. I like spicy things. But I have this insane obsession with Fish and Chips… oh and Shepherd’s Pie. You?”
Jae gave a somewhat embarrassed laugh when she said he was handsome and explained it by saying he must notice himself in the mirror “I try my best” he commented in a shy tone, he tried to make himself look good because he liked it when Han complimented his looks and also because he would be seen alongside his boyfriend and he wanted everyone to know that yes, Han was his. “You wouldn’t believe the amount of people who ask us if we’re brothers” he grumbled slightly, that was frustrating for the dhampir. “Well I’m still getting started but...I’d like to think I’m good at what I chose” he nodded slightly, he was still undecided about how he wanted that to translate to a job though.
“I’ll bet you’re probably like top of your class too right?” she commented and raised his brows, she seemed like the type who was very capable at her studies. “He’s a vet, or technically he’s a vet student on his study year but I swear he knows everything there is to know about animals” he was so loving when it came to them too so it was the perfect job for him. Jae often felt very behind when it came to Han but he always needed to remind himself that the star was much older than him. “It seems like both of us are on a mission to prove something to the world” he responded and smiled softly, he was sure she was a very hard worker and she had earned everything she had, he hoped to be able to do that too, he wanted to be known for his work ethic rather than what money he had to throw around.
“Why biochemistry?” he asked curiously wondering if there was something that made her so interested in it, scientific roles tended to be inspired by a desire to understand something after all. He laughed when she hid her face against the bean bag and refused to answer some of her celebrity crushes, he scrunched his nose and grinned “I like Blake Lively a lot, she’s gorgeous” he commented and bit his lip slightly, most of his celebrity crushes were women actually. “It shouldn’t be too hard to find...but then I’ve never really looked” Han just ended up falling into his lap after all.
He smiled when she answered her favorite foods which made him chuckle “It sounds like you secretly want to be British” he teased slightly as they headed through to the market, surrounded by the stalls around them “Well you can’t go wrong with Kimchi, I swear I eat everything with it” he commented and chuckled “But you could also get me to sell my soul for a good steak” he teased playfully.
