Raven was nervous about her not-date with Eric, particularly after he appeared at her dorm room door with a bouquet of roses for her. She could sense his obvious interest in her, of course, and she didn't want to give him a false impression of hers. But her thoughts of that faded when she saw the fancy vegetarian restaurant he brought her to for dinner. "How did you know I was a vegetarian?" she asked, pleased with his selection. "I do not remember telling you that."

Eric smirked. "You are? I'm one, too, and this place has got a lot of great dishes. It's one of my favorites."

"Really?" Raven said, surprised. "I would not have guessed that. Most of my friends are not vegetarians."

He made a face. "Sometimes I think about goin' all the way, goin' vegan, but I don't know if I can do that. But eatin' meat, yuck." He gave an exaggerated shudder.

Raven couldn't help but smile at that. She didn't at all begrudge her friends who enjoyed eating meat, but it was refreshing to dine with someone who shared her aversion to it for a change. "I was raised a vegetarian," she said, "but milk and eggs and cheese were not forbidden." Leather hadn't exactly been common in Azarath, either -- she'd developed that weakness in Fandom, and sometimes had to wrestle with her conscience about it.

"C'mon, babe," Eric said, taking her arm and escorting her through the door. "Anything you want tonight, it's yours."

"C'mon, babe," Eric urged. "We'll just watch a few episodes. Nothing else...unless you change your mind."

"But what?" Eric said. He stopped and drew her from the sidewalk to a darkened storefront. "I get it, you got your heart broken," he said. "That sucks. I'm not gonna lie and say I don't want you. But no pressure."

He raised his hand to cup her cheek and turn her face back to him so he could stare down into her eyes. "It's more than that, Raven," he said. "I've been with lots of girls. I'm not gonna hide that. But you, you're different. I wanna spend time with you. I wanna know everything about you. I think I'm falling in love with you. You're beautiful, and there's just something special I can feel about you." He leaned in to kiss her.

Eric bent his head to kiss her forehead, dangerously close to her chakra. "You're amazing, Raven," he said. "Anybody who'd let you go is out of his mind. I never would. Come home with me and let me show you how incredible you are."

"Don't cry, babe," Eric murmured. "Let me make it all better. You know I can, don't you?" He tilted his head to kiss her again.

"All right," Eric said reluctantly. "But the night's still young. Why don't we go for a walk?"

"Sure, anything to keep the night going, babe," Eric said. "And I'd love to meet your friends."
