There was always a loophole in everything. Taealha first learnt that when she couldn't seem to get things her way during her experiments. She wasn't sure if she had experienced or before in her teen years considering the human still has yet to recall the small bits of her memories before her 17 year old self. Unfortunately, from the previous visit for her medical checkup today the doctor, she said the PTA could be permanent despite her therapies. Clearly, she wasn't happy to hear those news but said nothing about it. It wasn't as if she could actually express her upsetness, anyway. It was simply impossible for her to do that, so she gave a grateful nod and smile to her doctor before taking her leave. She decided then that there must be a way. A loophole.
That was two weeks ago, she was thinking of stopping her therapies but Arianna told her it's best to keep up with it, so she did. Her eyes landed on the picture of her posing in front of the beautiful sunset, she had set it as her lock screen picture. It reminded her of that cheat day she never wanted to end; the best cheat day in her entire life. She ended up befriending the one she requested to take the same picture. Ivory Blake. Taealha misses her. After spending hours talking to each other at the cafe, they were forced to go their separate ways once the cafe was closing, but not before promising each other to meet again later. Initially, they planned to meet again the next Saturday, they were supposed to go to the greenhouse Ivy told her about. Unfortunately, neither of their schedules seemed to line up. Ivy was busy with her work and so was Taealha. She couldn't exactly stop midway and sneak out, it wasn't Taealha.
Whenever Ivy is free, the human would be occupied with her thesis paper or the likes, and whenever she was free, Ivy would be somewhere outside of Evermore, doing her job. But finally, after a while, they were able to set a date to meet and spend the day. It was why she decided to clear everything on her day today, specifically for the Aussie girl. Taealha also made sure nobody would call her in. Today was just her and Ivy, as planned. As part of her New Year's look, the human decided to dye her hair, changing the dark shade of black to a brighter color that would definitely catch people's attention; red. She also sported that new blouse she got, a baby blue one with her usual skater skirt that stops just her knees, lower now because the weather was chilling. Her vibrant hair was curled naturally and left loose with a beret on top of it, her neck adorned with necklaces and all of her ear piercings present. The human still opted for heels, but settled for boots instead of pumps.
Was she all dressed up to meet Ivy? Yes. Taealha always dressed up prettily for herself but perhaps she wanted to show a certain look for a certain someone today. After petting her cat, she slung her bag around her and locked the doors before making her way downstairs. They had agreed to meet in front of the same cafe; the cafe Ivy led her to, that day. It was only a few miles away from her apartment complex and Taealha enjoys jogging every morning, anyway, her cardio levels were fine. By the time she got there, she saw a familiar silhouette standing in front of the entrance, just across her. In order to get there, she needed to cross, in which Taealha waved enthusiastically towards her before doing so. "Have you waited for long?"
She nodded thoughtfully “We’re in a world where certain people are put on pedestals for being this certain way...but what most people don’t realize is that those people aren’t even really like that, they’re just good at playing the part” as an actress she had some experience in that, especially because she was constantly in the public eye. Though that was still the one thing she didn’t want Taealha to know about her, she didn’t want to change the current path they were on and she didn’t want her to see her any differently. She felt guilty in part for not being upfront but this was a first date, how was she supposed to get into the risks of fame along with her fake boyfriend, it would ruin the day and she couldn’t stand that.
She hoped in time she would be able to figure things out and when she was ready, she could come out to the world. Though someone like Taealha didn’t reserve the kind of judgment that would come to her should they find out about their date. It was hard for the Initia to know what was best. All she knew is that she didn’t want to leave right now, she wanted to spend time with her for as long as possible. “I feel like it might be illegal for a first date to go this well” she responded, laughing softly under her breath as she hit send, honestly she was waiting for something bad to happen or perhaps even to wake up and realize it was all a dream.
Ivy had noticed the soft blush on Taealha’s cheeks when she admitted she did like to be spoiled a little here and there, it was endearing seeing the way she seemed so humbled by the gifts “Well then I’d tell you that you may become even more spoiled around me” she laughed and tilted her head slightly “There are no doubt, many girls who want to go on a date with me, believe me I’ve tried” she smiled shyly “But you’re my first date” and that meant something to Ivy, she wanted to meet someone who she felt a connection with for herself. Because of her fake relationship it was too risky to date someone in the industry, so finding someone real...had felt impossible. Looking at the bag Taealha pushed to her she smiled softly opening it and hooking the keyring over her finger so she could hold it in her palm “It’s perfect, thank you” she responded and nodded a few times.
She swore her chest was doing little backflips as she watched the way Taealha clutched the plushie to her chest though and before long they were heading back to Ivy’s car. Thankfully, even though she looked around, she didn’t notice any paparazzi and no one had recognized her but she didn’t intend on sticking around long enough to risk it.
Good at playing the part, the way Ivy put it was as if she was experienced in that kind of situation. It made Taealha wonder if the Initia was ever stuck in that kind of situation where she saw people putting on masks and acting that way. "Kudos to their acting skills, then" she typed, she wished more people would see through it. She did like how open minded and rational the other female sounded, if there was anything the human liked, it was being able to be engaged in a conversation where they can freely talk about a lot of things without feeling constricted. An intelligent conversation makes the person very attractive. When she said it was illegal for a first date to go this well, Taealha chuckled and moved her fingers to pick a few cute gifs to express her mood and thoughts, "I know right? But we better not jinx it. I like it. It's very simple yet… very fun."
She had a fun time with her today and it was clear neither wanted the day to end yet, which was why they told each other it was fine… to extend it a little bit more, even if that meant Ivy sending her back home. "Maybe this is a sign… that we should totally have a second one… and a third one… and well, you know how the numbers work" she quipped coyly. Was she bold in saying this? Perhaps. But Taealha really wished to have another date with her. It doesn't have to be that soon, the human really just wanted to spend more time with her, making memories together. Ivy understood her in ways most people didn't. "Careful Ivy, you make me like being pampered so much one day I'm gonna be the focus of all your affection" she jested playfully, not that she would mind. Taealha wasn't going to lie and said she didn't like the attention Ivy gave her because she honestly did. She was a bit surprised upon finding out that she really was her first date, "Well then I hope I made it memorable for you. It's a good memory to keep."
This was far from being her first date but was it by far the most memorable? For sure. The plushie was normal sized but the way she held it against her chest really made it look slightly bigger than it originally was. By the time they got to Ivy's car, she quickly got into the passenger seat and tossed the plushie to the backseat so she could use her phone properly, she even wrote her address down for the Initia. Her heart was thumping in excitement from the idea of Ivy sending her back home from their first date, right… since most of her dates were all talk, walking her back home was not on their list. "This will actually be the first time someone walks… well drives me back home after a date."
“Part of the job I suppose” she responded when Taealha said they must be really good actors to be able to keep the facade up. Honestly, it was exhausting to do so and there had been so many times when Ivy wanted to quite. But she knew she was limited on options, it wasn’t like she wanted to give up the thing she enjoyed doing most but also if she was to show her real self she wasn’t sure many people would like it. Tessa Blake seemed like such a different person to the girl who was on this date with Taealha “Maybe that’s the key to it...maybe the reason others end up so terrible is because they try to do too much...put too much pressure” today was supposed to be casual and yet it had still made Ivy nervous. That was how she knew she really liked this girl a lot and wanted things to be real with her. It was a little scary.
Most of all, she had enjoyed herself today, she had enjoyed spending time with someone and just pouring out any thought that came to mind, it was freeing just being able to talk with someone about anything and everything, without the fear they were going to take what they knew and run straight to the tabloids about it. She smiled when she read Taealha’s message saying they should have more dates “Is this you asking me out again?” she responded and smiled to herself “Cause if so...I’d like to hear your ideas” Taealha seemed like the planning type so she was sure the human had some ideas about what they might do together. She smiled to herself at Taealha’s playful warning “Can’t be any worse than having all this affection to give and no one to receive it right?” it didn’t seem too scary to let Taealha in because for once, what she felt, felt real.
It didn’t take long for them to cross the parking lot and get into the car, Ivy closed the door and put on her seatbelt before looking over to Taealha to read the address she had typed out, she put it into the sat nav and then started up the car “I’ve never been to this part of the city before” she commented, noting that Taealha’s neighborhood was towards the outskirts of the city, close to the university. She was sure it was quieter than the center of the city where she lived which was no doubt nice “Your commute to work must be quite long” she commented thoughtfully, she couldn’t help but laugh a little when she heard the return of the robot voice as Taealha talked about this being the first time a date takes her home “Really? I always thought that was...the nice thing to do...make sure they get home safely” she looked over to her and smiled softly as she pulled out of the parking lot and started driving toward the direction the GPS told her “Maybe try and find an excuse to be let in and stay a little while” she laughed softly.
