If it wasn't evident from all the shuffling and fixing of his clothes Leigh was doing in the mirror, he was nervous. How could he not be nervous when this was the first time he was going on a public date...well ever. He had been insistent he didn't want to go for a while, Leigh didn't do well with crowds and much preferred to stay at home but Irene had reminded him that many potential investors for the cafe were going to be at the party. In the end he had reluctantly agreed, how bad could it really be right? A bit of dancing...listening to people talk about themselves and maybe some food.
He was trying to convince himself it would be okay, fumbling over the invitation the other day when Eun had come over for a surprise visit, they had been more common lately. Their relationship felt like it was at the start of this crazy big journey Leigh didn't know yet and while Leigh knew things were complicated, more complicated than he wanted to admit. The kitsune was happy beyond belief. Of course Eun had noticed his nervous state and asked to see the invitation before insisting he was coming along with him. In one part Leigh was relieved he wouldn't have to face the party on his own but on the other, the therian was worried about showing the not so great parts of himself.
Like this one for example, Leigh could barely breathe because of the nerves he was feeling as he did up the buttons of his suit jacket and then headed out into the lounge. He smiled because Minha ran over to greet him and he laughed under his breath "I know I look like a penguin" he responded as he scratched under her chin and then behind her ears. When he heard the doorbell Leigh snapped out his daydreaming and headed over to the door, opening it without hesitation. It wasn't Eun he was nervous about seeing but Leigh did gasp as his eyes trailed over him "Wow..." he spoke softly and blushed a little "You look amazing...I mean you always look amazing...but...your hair" Leigh swore he had never felt so attacked by a forehead before in his life. Of course before he could reach for Eun, Minha was already pushing her way between them, vying for Eun's attention "I think she missed her cuddle buddy" he spoke softly.
Eun wasn't a fan too, but he found it ironic how a fox is afraid of snakes, "I'd think foxy wouldn't be afraid of them but I wonder if it affects your fears? Don't worry, I won't be the one throwing a python your way just to see you freak out. That'd be my younger brother. My sister is a fan too which kinda makes sense since she's a vet." Jae, however, can't recall if the latter liked them since he never showed his interest towards them when he was younger. He gasped dramatically when he said his fox preferred to chase rabbits, "Those poor bunnies, I think Han has a pet bunny." He also saw the fallen star to be a bunny personified. His eyes softened upon hearing that from him, "My day is better when I see you too. My work can be so stressful but seeing you… Minha, it makes the day better, that's for sure." Admittedly, Eun has told Leigh before this that waking up to him was the best sight ever.
He always thought matching items were cute and the more minimalistic things are, the cuter it gets so a pair of rings seemed just right for him. "No, you don't, but it's nice to have things you can just touch and remember where it originated from… what it means" he knew he wanted to give that to Leigh. "For now… I can't give you a real ring, but couple rings seem doable" for now, he was sure one day his circumstances would be different and he'll wait until that day, if the kitsune would still have him then. Could he ask him to even do that? He smirked and winked playfully when Leigh said he never missed a gym session, that is true, even pushing his dhampir side to the left, he was still someone who exercises frequently, "Of course you'd know, don't you like it when I'm exercising?" He teased, he always wore tank tops and considering how Eun never actually wore something so revealing unless he's at home exercising, it was not a sight one can witness easily.
Eun brought his hand up to tilt Leigh's chin slightly and grinned, "I'll be damned… because you're supposed to be my lucky charm." He was once again tempted to stroke his hair but held back because it would mess up the kitsune's hair. He wasn't uncomfortable being intimate and showing affection to Leigh in the public so he'd like to think it's a step. Especially coming from someone who don't publicly display such gesture even before. The fact that Leigh told him there was no need to get it for him made him even more adamant to get it. "I want it…" he nodded, and waited until they could start their first round of auction. By then Eun had already finished his plate of appetiser as they started auctioning off paintings, his eyes glued onto the painting of a nude couple. "Is that… what I think it is?"
Leigh shrugged slightly “A lot of snakes are venomous and animal instinct says to stay away from anything that could kill us” he nodded slightly, the fox was smarter than people tended to give it credit for and when he turned he could feel some of those senses at work “I think if anyone actually threw a python at me I’d likely pass out” he confessed and nibbled at his bottom lip, Leigh could be a bit of a friady cat when it came to those sorts of things. Leigh blushed slightly when Eun expressed his sadness for the bunnies “I eat pretty well before I turn so it’s mostly just the thrill of the chase...they tend to get off just fun because they can run fast” he couldn’t control that instinct even if he wanted to unfortunately.
Leigh couldn’t help but smile when Eun said his day was barter when he got to come home to him and Minha “We’re always eagerly waiting for you” he confessed with a blissful smile. Leigh nodded in agreement, it was a little materialistic but he did kinda love the idea of having something he could look down at and think of the dhampir “Couple rings it is then...I’m going to cherish mine” he spoke in a soft voice as he thought about how he hadn’t really had a special gift from Eun before. Leigh licked his lips and blushed when Eun said he liked it when he was exercising “I feel like answering that question could get me into trouble” he confessed and giggled softly, he did enjoy it when the dhampir worked out at home, even if it was rarely.
As usual the kitsune was completely under Eun’s spell and the moment his eyes met the other male’s dark ones he practically lit up “I’m not sure that I’m all that lucky” he commented softly but he definitely felt lucky in moments like this when he had Sangeun Moon gazing back at him. Leigh found it charming how determined Eun now seemed to be to get that single item from the auction and he knew better than to try and talk him out of it, Eun could be pretty stubborn when he set his mind to something after all. Leigh finished off his first plate before looking up from his food and giggling when he realized what Eun was commenting on “Well they did say it’s an adult auction” he commented and grinned. A few more items came and went while the plates were cleared and before long they were bringing out the mains “How on earth is anyone going to get that home” he questioned when they brought out a lot with an almost lifesize giraffe statue.
“Good point” he quipped softly, he wasn’t a fan of reptiles either so can he really refute that? Even so, the reasoning was valid enough to take that into account. He couldn’t help but chuckle when Leigh mentioned he would likely pass out if someone were to throw a python his way. “I mean isn’t that a given, why would you beam if someone was to throw a python at you? Even I would let out the highest pitch scream in return.” It was new information for Eun, who didn’t know much about therians, or kitsunes in particular. He had that amused smile the entire time when the male told him it was mostly the fox getting off the entire chase, “I can understand why” he teased, “Foxes are fast but I’ve never really seen one in actual action” the look he gave him was as if telling him to shift in front of him one of those days.
Ever since they got off with their relationship, the dhampir has been relatively more humorous than usual. He found a new sense of security with the kitsune and was clearly enjoying every second of it. His smile grew significantly upon hearing that both Leigh and Minha would be eagerly waiting for him, “What a nice thing to think about before getting home.” The eldest Moon was dead set to get them a pair of couple rings, something to match to commemorate their relationship; something to remember when they gaze at it. Eun, much like his youngest brother, Jae, was stubborn too. It was the blood flowing inside them probably, considering the rest of their siblings are also hard-headed. Once he was sure he wanted to do something, there’s not much that could change his mind, especially when he knows that’s what he wants.
It was hard not to smirk when it comes to the working out question, Eun really does like to keep himself at the best fit, and training was just ingrained in him, as soon as he had his hand on the handle of his sword, he was in his own world. There was a certain comfort in it. “It’s fine to admit you like seeing me train, sometimes shirtless and all sweaty, Leigh” he jested and nudged him playfully, “It’s flattering to hear your boyfriend is drooling over you, you know.” He let out a disgruntled groan when the kitsune claimed he wasn’t lucky, “Most lucky people don’t admit they’re lucky at all” he exclaimed. “Anyway I know I’m lucky.” The nude painting that came in his line of peripheral vision was igniting the curiosity in him since it wasn’t exactly the type of things that would be openly displayed if he was back in Korea. Especially not at an auction either. Admittedly, he couldn’t take his eyes off the painting because of how intriguing it was.
“When you hear about adult auctions, do you think of this? Aren’t all auctions supposed to be for adults anyway? Since they have disposable income…” By the time a life-size giraffe statue came into his view, Eun was gaping, “How in the world… I’m more curious to know how they even brought that thing in…” And when he heard the starting price, he chuckled, “Yeah… that makes sense.” A lot of things came and passed, and finally, the item that was on his attention the entire time was finally unveiled to the preying eyes in the room, though Eun was determined to make it his. The starting price wasn’t bad, actually, it was lower than what Eun had expected too, and soon the competitions rushed in and before long, it was already on its 11th bid, and somehow, Eun managed to win the room’s attention so much that the next person in line didn’t raise their number until the time was up. “There you go…”
Leigh couldn’t help but giggle because he had a very cartoonish vision in his mind of someone throwing a snake across the room and causing complete chaos “I kinda feel bad for the snake if it’s getting thrown too, even if I don’t want it near me...it would hurt to get thrown across the room” of course Leigh would be worried for the welfare of the snake he was completely terrified of, that matched his personality to a tee. Leigh blushed slightly when Eun said he’d never a fox in action because the look the dhampir gave him was clear “You don’t want to see me like that” he murmured softly, though he supposed if they were living together then he should probably prepare himself for that sooner or later.
He smiled softly when Eun said it was nice to think about having them waiting for him when he got him “Minha even sits by the door and waits for you, she can hear your car before you even get out of it” and by Minha he also meant himself because he had the same level of hearing and was certainly keen to have his boyfriend back with him. Leigh was really comfortable with Eun which wasn’t something he could say about a lot of people and while the dhampir still made him blush here and there, he generally felt like he could be himself around him without fear of being seen in a negative light. That came from spending time together and slowly getting to know one another.
Leigh shifted a little on the spot when Eun said it was fine to admit he liked seeing him work out “I mean...you look especially hot when you work out shirtless” and god the way he looked when he was done, covered in sweat with his hair pushed back. He sighed dreamily and nudged him back “I swear I have no self control when it comes to you” he scolded almost playfully as he laid his head on his shoulder for just a moment before straightening up again. “You seem pretty certain” Leigh responded when Eun said he was lucky, of course the kitsune felt very lucky to have someone like him but he also felt like saying that out loud might jinx it somehow.
“Honestly I can’t say I’ve given adult auctions much thought in the past” he admitted and chuckled because of the way Eun’s eyes were completely fixed on the painting “Seems like you’re a fan of it though” he teased softly. It was entertaining to judge all of the different lots they brought out and it helped Leigh to feel more at ease in a such an unfamiliar setting. The dhampir had a way of making him feel better about everything and he appreciated it greatly “They probably had to walk with it sideways and then be really really careful when going around corners” it seemed like it had somewhat of a cult following though because many people bidded on it before it was sold off. Leigh watched with intent as the ring was brought out and then the auction for it began, true to his word, Eun bid on it right off the mark and before long he was claiming the winning bid. When the gavel went down the therian grinned brightly and threw his arms around the dhampir before realizing they were in public and giving him a shy smile “I love you” he confessed in a soft voice.
Of course, Leigh would feel bad for the snake. Eun couldn't help but shook his head and chuckle at how predictable and comical his boyfriend could be, "Only you would think about the snake's well-being even though it could very well be a poisonous reptile for you" he teased. "You're so cute sometimes, you know that?" It does scream Leigh for he wasn't surprised either. He knew it would be extremely vulnerable for Leigh to expose himself in his fox form so he didn't try to push further for the topic, although at some point, Eun was sure he'd witness it sooner rather than later. The thought of having this family of his own, with Leigh and Minha, hell even Leigh's chinchillas that the dhampir had also grown to love. How could he trade any of that? It was no wonder he didn't try to think about home at all, when his home is right here.
"You'd wait for me too, huh? I feel loved and special" he cooed, that's the face he wanted to see every time he comes home from a tiring day at work. Forever. He could get used to this, and he wished he would. When the kitsune got flustered over the topic of him exercising and his body, Eun could feel the smirk that crept up, solely for teasing the other male for ogling, "Just shirtless? You weren't staring even when I was wearing those tank tops or tight shirts? You sure, Leigh?" He nudged his side playfully and shook his head in mirth, "Who knows? Maybe I should even work out with less clothing next time? Perhaps it wouldn't have been so constricting that way, you know? You may even walk into your man exercising… without anything clinging onto him" he winked and leaned against his seat with a smug grin.
"Of course I feel certain, I have you." When it comes to expressing his adoration and love towards Leigh these days, he was more daring than he was a couple of months ago. It was getting better because he feels more in tune and open about it. When Leigh teased him for having an eye for the painting, Eun's ears turned red as he laughed nervously, "I have no idea what you mean… why would I have a liking for things like… that." God, note that's when the kitsune could find the dhampir struggling in his room, trying his best not to get flustered at it. "I just think it's a nice painting… like the artist obviously captured the essence of the art, he drew the lady nicely." He wasn't an artsy guy but even he knew which one is a priceless piece.
He was taken aback by the amount of people bidding to buy the giraffe statue, "That's… a lot of people bidding for a giraffe. With that much money, you'd think they would be able to own a real-life one." Hearing the gavel making its mark known to the room, Eun almost got up to cheer but kept that action to himself secretly as he grinned, turning his head to Leigh, who engulfed him in a hug. The dhampir placed his finger to his chin playfully and whispered, "I love you too. Now we have matching rings." The auction went on and before long, all the obnoxious things were sold. "I can't believe they auctioned a tray…"
