Set in the modern world, this RP explored what our Chaos War characters would be like as normal humans in the real world.
Nichole froze up and chewed her lip when he asked her to dinner. "I um...can't. I have to work nights," she said, focusing on her nearly finished lunch. She could feel her cheeks were hot and tried to avoid meeting his eyes. Please don't ask where, please don't ask where, she repeated in her mind as if she could somehow telepathically transmit the thought.
Oscar's mouth drooped before putting it back in smile again. "It's alright... a lot of student work evenings and night. But is there a date or a night you get a day off? Or if you prefer lunch how about tomorrow, 2pm? I finish my classes then. I will take you out somewhere as a surprise." Oscar smiled at her, hoping to let her know that he wasn't offended or anything. A lot of students did a lot of jobs at night to pay for rent, food etc. It was nothing out of place.
Nichole smiled at him, but that covered her thoughts. Thank god he doesn't know what sort of work I do. "I have Thursday night off," she replied. "But if you want to take me out to lunch tomorrow, that sounds just as good." Nichole smiled again, then finished off the last of her soda. "We'd better get back, I have a class in 30."
Oscar grinned and winked at her. "Well then, wear something a bit formal because it will be worth the effort to dress up a bit. Trust me." He took out his wallet and paid for it with cash not his card. He only believed using credit cards for emergencies, not to show off. He gave a generous tip to the waiter and offered Nichole his arm. "Shall we go?"
Oscar chuckled, "I hope it doesn't sound boring to you but it's called Advanced Physiology II. Science folks aren't the most creative when it comes to naming things." He might look confident outside, but inside truly his heart was pounding. He met Nichole by sheer chance and it might turn out to be a sheer good chance.
Nichole smiled. "Oh, I don't know much about it, but it sounds interesting. I'm taking French III next. I took it in high school, it's sort of a hobby, not a major or anything. I have French ancestry on my mother's side," Nichole explained as they walked back to school.
Oscar smiled, "I am not that good in language. Maybe because I detested my German teacher so much I started this loathing for learning foreign language." Oscar paused then continued, "She was mean as you could get, not plain mean but very cleverly mean. She use to punish us like no other with writing out a hundred pages of official school German dictionaries and so on."
