Donovan had spent the last few months constructing ‘Eternally Blue’ with the help of a helpful Nephilim and Valeria. After learning about his sisters death while serving as an Ailward guard he knew he need to move on with his life and find his own life, he had spent so much of his life searching for her, so much of his time had become wasted in those years. So here he was in the town of Evermore attempting to have an actual life. He wondered daily if it was a fruitless effort, but meeting Argent turned things around for him even if it was in a strange love/hate way.
Opening night was a big night for Donovan the night started, and the club was filled people drinking and enjoying the set till the early hours of the morning. This was how the first week was form him until the club entered the area of regulars and what not. The first few weeks were great, but he enjoyed the mellower crowd that came now. He got to know the people who came often even a few people he didn’t think would show up like his ex-girlfriend Raina and her family.
Tonight was no different the music was playing and Donovan wiped down the bar as he showed his staff he wasn’t afraid to help out even though he was the owner when Victoria walked in and over to the bar. Donovan made his way over to her and smiled softly as he stood in front of her and leaned his hands on the bar after tossing the towel over his shoulder “Evening Miss what can I get you?” he asked as he waited for her to order her drink and once she did he began to make it for her.
Setting the drink in front of her he crossed his arms over his chest and with a classic Donovan smile he spoke. “So what brings you into Eternally Blue? I just don’t remember your face and trust me I would.” He chuckled softly “Not that I am not grateful for a more customers maybe it means my club may make itself well known one day.”
Donovan watched the woman in front of him that was beautiful and could natural draw in everyone around her. As she smiled he noted it didn’t touch her eyes and it cause a sadness in him. He hated to think she was not having a good time in his club. He made a note in his mind to make sure that smile touched her hazel eyes before she left the club that evening. His smile though tended to be a large feature on his face even if he had his own issues going on. Learning that he had lost his sister closing the biggest chapter in his life was a bitter moment.
The bitter moment led him to meeting Argent though, Argent was someone he couldn’t quiet figure out, but he was working on it even though he had threatened her when they first met. Their strange connection due to his dead sister. They each had different connections to her, and Argent was filling him in on the life he didn’t know about. It caused him to feel like his sister’s memory would never die. He shook his head slightly and then focused back on the woman in front of him.
He poured her a fresh glass of tequila along with one for himself as he then smiled softly to her. “Well I am glad that my club is getting good news would hate to have to give it all up and go back to traveling the world instead. I was looking for some roots. When an old friend called and asked me to the city it was to only be a visit and yet I have stayed.” He said as he tossed back the tequila “Well I am glad you chose to check it out.” He smiled at her again. “Though this place has a different kind of perk that happens in about an hour.” His dark gaze flicked up to the clock and back down.
He moved to lean on the bar so that he was closer to her and could hear her better as the music began to be in full swing in that moment “A friend of my Valeria called me and asked me to come to town, I could tell she just need someone around even if she couldn’t express it fully to me. So, I hoped on a plane to visit her and make sure she was okay. Turned into me learning my sister had once been in this town. Learning answers about her and how she passed away.” He was somber for a moment as that was the first time he had told anyone that besides Argent. “I figured it was time I put down roots.”
He poured himself another glass sipping on it lightly this time so not to become fully drunk on a few shots. He looked to the band that was playing and watched the few people who danced along the floor and then drifted his gaze back to her “How about you? Something special bring you to Evermore?”
Donovan chuckled softly as he leaned against the bar “well I hope you never hear anything negative about the club after all it is my baby.” He nodded to her and looked her over again “Travelling is the goal for some people for sure but in the end everyone wants a sense of home and belonging do they not?” he asked back as he shrugged “Besides there is only so much world to see that it can become lonely when you travel it alone.” He stated as if it was a fact “Maybe if I had someone I was traveling with I would have felt different.” he said honestly.
He smirked as he caught her smiling about the perk he mentioned “Oh you know just knife throwing contest. If you are into that kind of thing.” He gave her an answer to her curious head tilt before giving a slight shrug “Sounds like someone isn’t into having roots around here or the roots you have are weighing you down.” he said as his almost black gaze held her bright blue ones. He alway enjoyed peoples eyes the way the different colors played in the light or when they talked about different things how ones eyes could brighten or darken depending on the moment.
He wondered if his question hit a nerve as she shook her head to him. They both seem to come to the city for similar reasons even though his was more because someone called him into town but they both came after someone they hadn’t seen in a long time. As she fell in silent for a long moment, he wanted to ask her if she found the person she was looking for.
She stood up quietly and he nodded “Thank you.” He cleared his throat looking around and smiled but before she could go to far he was around the bar next to her “Name is Donovan.” He said as he held her hand out to her. “You could stay and join the Knife event if you wanted. I mean I am undefeated so it's not like you have a chance.” he smirked to her with a cocky grin on his face. He looked over her features maybe even she didn’t know the sad vibe she was putting out, he wanted to help her have a night of fun.
“Lost yourself you say?” He asked as he took a long sip from the drink he poured himself before looking back to her. “It think we all lose ourselves and finding ourselves can be rather hard, Especially when ourselves are ever changing.” He mused softly between them before they smiled to each other once again. “Traveling is amazing, no argument there. I spent most of my time traveling. I loved it, just grew tired of being alone while doing it.” he shrugged slightly to her. “One day, maybe you will settle down and set down roots.” He chuckled to her.
As her eyes sparkled with the knowledge of a knife throwing contest starting in not long. He smirked wide as she turned back to him “I would love to see someone take the crown from me, but I don’t think it will be you.” He teased i a manner to try and rile her up. “Of course you can use your own, after all you will need all the help you can get.” he laughed slightly “I will add your name to the list.” He said as he moved back behind the bar grabbing a clipboard. “Not many people on, just us and about ten other people.”
Donovan began to set up the brackets on the chalkboard next to the freshly cut piece of wood with a target placed on it. Don placed himself on one end of the bracket and Victoria on the other so that the only way they would face each other is if she made it through the other set ups. He dusted his hands off at the six pairings and placed the chalk above the board moving to pick up his drink “let the best person win.” he said to her holding up his glass to clink against hers.
