In the morning a the courthouse it saw not that crowd but after a few hours there became more people. The Dhampir has been on his feet most of the morning from clients to records and to find some of his co-workers. One of those happened to be named Sungeun, Nikolas didn't mind the other male around as he found them very interesting. There is always something the male would say to make Nikolas think and see things in a new light. The Dhampir only got to see the male three times with the whole day he knew it was not life-changing. The whole day became busy out of the blew.
As Lunchtime slowly approaches, the dhampir took a moment to get go his phone to see what sounds good and fast for him to eat and then come back at a no later time. Nik wonders if he will have the time to do his training later that day. As he got a plan getting ready to get up he bumped into Sungeun as they did talk a bit, looks like today did tire them out but he caught the male talk about his brother that could be waiting for him. "If I see I can tell them you are on your way out?" he asked. Nik never knew what the other's brother looked like but he was sure to recognize him by the first glace.
The dark brunette got his jacket as he stepped out to the cold world that is welcoming winter. "With this weather, I can get sick very quickly." Nik wished he got a heavier jacket. It looks like he miscalculated the weather of today. Nik will have to worry about the jacket later on his way home. As he walked he did look around with hi blue eyes wondering if he did miss the other's brother inside, who would be out here in the cold?
There was one main thing that didn’t differ all that much from his life back in Seoul to here in Evermore and that was his Dhampir training. Since the day he had come here and asked Donovan for training he had been a regular at the Dojo, always practicing with his weapons and also his hand-to-hand fighting skills. His training had multiple motivations behind it, for one, he wanted to get into better shape and build some muscle so he could be stronger. For two, he wanted to learn how to protect those important around him so he never felt as weak as he did that day when he and Han were attacked at the vet clinic.
It had been slow but definite progress and now he could easily while away the afternoon by doing practice runs, working out on the equipment and practicing his throwing. Learning to throw with his left hand had been hard but nowadays he could do it pretty well, throw with the left, fight with the right as Donovan told him many times. He was really grateful to the elder Dhampir for taking him under his wing. Tonight Jae was in one of the back rooms, tucked away in the dojo and doing reps on the punch bag, pretty hard reps for him too because he was letting out a little frustration at the same time.
After he finished his reps he headed out into the dojo only to realize that everyone seemed to have left for the night, he grabbed a towel and wiped the sweat from his brow before grabbing his bag and heading for the front door, this wasn’t the first time he’d been the last to leave so he knew the drill, he headed outside before casting a locking rune to seal the door until tomorrow and then wandered out into the cold, he was only wearing a hoodie and he was fine at first thanks to his body temperature rising because of the workout but before long he was rubbing his arms a little to try and warm up from the cold.
The Dhampir has been getting help from Taehyun and just asked for help from a Valkyr since his family protects the species for help and was happy to accept. Only know what he taught himself to his father was not enough since it would've been outdated. Ever since leaving his old life, Nik wanted to learn everything without being looked down again but as of living in the city, he has been pretty happy and slowly coming out to be himself.
He has not heard his family for many years and he didn't expect a call anytime soon but his father was an expectation. His father has been keeping tabs on him which is the reason Nikolas is still being a lawyer to this day. In order for him to stay in America and not want anyone to come to the city to check on him, he has to still do the dreaded job but he soon came to like it as he started to talk to more people.
Nikolas did know later he has to train by himself to order for him to miss a day of practiced. For many years Nik used to being alone with no one to guide him or even bothered to help him. Now thinking int the present, the dhampir was walking down the street to order some lunch back along with coffee for the front desk who asked and offered to pay him but Nikolas didn't feel right to take her money even though she wanted to pay for it herself. The little things he could do for others make the world a better place. He had a few more hours to get things he needs to get done before closing up his part of the office building. He wondered if he should get someone warm to keep him from getting sick.
As the dhampir came close to the door Nik didn't look if there was ice on the ground as his foot stepped into as he couldn't react in time and feel to the floor. "Watch where to step." the dhampir told himself as he there to progress and knew he has to take him to move his body to get up.
The attempts to stay warm didn’t get him very far considering how absolutely arctic-like it was today in Evermore city, the Dhampir had never been a big fan of the cold, it always chilled him to his bones and made him want to get inside as soon as possible, normally on a cold day he would wear many different layers but when he was training it seemed like a nuisance to have to take quite literally everything off only to have to put it all back on again when he was done. He was regretting not bringing anything now though as he shivered slightly.
He had just got to the bus stop he usually got his bus over to the south of the city from when he looked up at the sign trying to determine when the next service was only to see that most of them had been canceled. He grumbled to himself, thinking about how winter always seemed to be like a curse to the city and that quite literally everything seemed to come to a halt because of it, he was just about to call for a cab when he heard the sound of a loud thud behind him and then heard someone grumbling to themselves. He turned around to see another male he thought he recognized from the dojo a couple of times on the ground and headed over immediately to offer to help him up “The ice is really out to get us today huh?” he commented with a grin “Though it’s usually me slipping over in this weather, I have zero coordination” he pressed his lips together “Are you okay? That kinda sounded like it would hurt a lot” he commented with a polite smile to the male.
Being born as a pre-maturely, Nikolas can get sick very easily it makes his life harder as it's always the indoor walls the Dhampir always knows for most of his life. He was not prepared for arctic-like weather they were having in the city. Nikolas knew Audrina would not be happy if he missed a day at work knowing it was the only place they both can see each other but not the way they want. Due to her royal blood, they both knew her mother would not allow them to together look like she does not believe in the world of secrets. It's the one thing Nik and Audrina has to keep their love together. it all started with her after all now it's his job to protect her along with him trying to be stronger and adding knowledge to every lesson he gains from his training. he still has a lot to go but Nik vowed to ever back down and show the world and prove to his family the weak can be stronger.
The Dhampir sighed was about to give up as Nikolas felt someone coming up to help him. "It sure is. Here I told myself to watch your step and I end up breaking my word. Thank you."He looked up with his blue eyes toward the male. Nikolas knew the other from somewhere, yes at the Dojo. This is embarrassing for sure. Went he got up he dusted off the show that was stuck to his jacket. "You're not alone. Winter likes to be a pain to everyone one way or another." Nikolas smiled and nodded. "Yes, I am. Thank you for your help. I remember seeing you're from somewhere. Am Nikolas or just call me Nik." he said introducing himself.
"Around this time of year, it's summer where I am from," Nikolas said talking about New Zealand but it's not like he enjoyed the winters which it's summer around the city. When people told the Dhampir about the difference in seasons Nik thought it was a joke well look who underestimated himself. Not like he is proud, his butt will be sore later on.
Jae laughed under his breath and shrugged slightly as he helped to pull the other male to his feet “I know what you mean, I swear if there is anything I can trip over, slip on or walk into, I will manage to do it” he grinned slightly, cursed with the klutz gene unfortunately, him and his sister Ahri both had the curse while their brothers Eun and Hyunsik didn’t have the same problem at all, he was a little jealous. “Yeah can’t say I’m a fan of the cold, my skin gets all dry and then my nose goes all red” he grumbled slightly because it literally took him about two seconds after stepping out into the cold to end up looking like a mess, which is why he was very quickly regretted not bringing a jacket to training with him.
Now that he was looking back at the male though, Jae recognized his face, which made him frown for a moment trying to figure out where he had seen him before and when the other male said pretty much the same he bit his lip “The dojo by any chance?” he asked hoping he hadn’t just completely read that wrong and brought up the dojo to a random human “Jaesung” he responded with a grin and a slight nod of his head “But call me Jae, nice to meet you Nik” he knew a lot of people now with longer names which were shortened to one syllable, made life much easier he had decided.
“Oh that must be weird for you” he commented with a chuckle, it must be hard to get used to the seasons being flipped around and it being cold when you expect it to be hot and vice versa “I’m used to the cold honestly, Evermore isn’t too different to back home, though the mountains are definitely different” he’d never been to a city surrounded by mountains before Evermore and he found it really pretty to look out at them.
Getting back on to his feet Nikolas laughed a little hearing what the other had to say. "I can't say winter is my friend too, I get sick really easily. " Nikolas has poor health due to his being premature. The Dhampir has to be extra careful with who he is around, the weather and wear the correct clothes which is the one flaw he does not have right now. His jacket was too light for this weather. "We're going inside? I know it will be a lot better than out here." Nickolas asked knowing he didn't see the other before he feels around. "Ain't you cold or are you warm-blooded? if you are lucky." Nikolas thought it as weird to see someone out in about with no jacket.
When the other male talked about the Dojo, Nikolas looked around making sure no one had no heard that. "Yeah, now thinking about it," Nikolas said was happy himself is a Dhampir and the only one to hear. Nikolas looked at the other after hearing his name. "Jaesung? Oh yes, your Sengeun's brother right?' he asked making sure he is talking to the right person. the Dhampir smiled at the other, Jae is a nice nickname has anyone called you, Jay? I know the sound similar but it's never wrong to ask." Nikolas said knowing he didn't want to ask a dumb question even if it's obvious.
"It is, sometimes I do look at my calendar forgetting I am not in New Zealand. If you ever go there by any chance think opposite that is what I tell people when they are planning to around this time." Nikolas will never forget seeing travelers and tourists that it would be cold and didn't bring anything for the summer weather so they had to buy close. He will never understand why it's different but it is. 'Where are you from? The mountains here are beautiful for sure am sure if anyone wanted to paint them it would be a masterpiece for sure.
