What the hell did normals do at times like this?

It made Jake furious that he didn’t know if he could do this for Kai. He wanted to do this, but he was terrified he didn’t know how. However he was determined to do it… he just hoped he could manage it, because he didn’t want to let Kai down. Why? Well… he was just chalking that up to sheer stubborn determination, because that was all he had.

Oh, and speaking of that…

Jake reached into the sub-dimensional pocket that held his lantern, pulling it out and re-charging his ring before he did anything else. He had a working theory that the green ring provided a sort of buffer to the more… influencing colors of the spectrum that the white ring gave him access to. So far, it seemed to work, so he made sure his ring was always topped off before heading out into any trying situation… like tonight.

Where he was going on a normal date.

Kai wanted to try a real relationship, and he was quite honestly down for that, but it left him with so many damn questions, like what did you do on a date that wasn’t just a booty call or an effort to get into someone’s pants? He wasn’t going to be dumb and try to watch romantic comedies or sitcoms or anything for ideas, but… damned if he knew if he was doing this right. For one thing, it was hard to pick someone up for a date in the Hub, where people’s addresses could be… well, fluid. He didn’t know if showing up in a sports car made of green light counted as ‘doing it right,’ but that’s exactly how he pulled up to Kai’s current address after making reservations at the Hub’s most fancy, upscale restaurant (which he was going to have to blow two months credits to pay for, but oh well).

“So… ah… hi,” he said when she came out, feeling his face turn red. Easy, tiger. You can do this. You’ve faced down a goddamn Superman, you can do this. “I… ah… got us reservations,” he added lamely. “The place is supposed to be fantastic, I hope you like it.”

Kai had absolutely no idea how human dates worked. Not as a statement of her inhumanity but mostly as a statement that she had no practical experience with them. Certainly she had read a book or two with romance in them, it was hard to avoid that, but she hasn't paid much attention! It wasn't like she had expected her life to go this way, for her to find a guy who she wanted to have a true emotional connection with.

So to say Kai was a little anxious was an understatement. Her sister would probably add on that it was a massive understatement, seeing as Kai had dragged Diane over to help her go through literally everything she owned in the hopes of finding something 'date appropriate.' Because leather jackets didn't exactly scream dinner date- and Kai didn't really own many fancy clothes. They were incredibly difficult to fight in, so she hasn't bothered bringing any.

She did have a copy of the dress she had worn to the last big party she went to- but considering it had been not Jake who took her to bed that night... despite Jake being there... well it seemed like a poor choice.

Kai hadn't put this much thought into her clothes in years.

Finally her sister just went out and came back with a dress that she more or less forced on to Kai. And heels- there were no good reasons for heels. Absolutely none. Make up was still in her wheelhouse, but stars she was grateful for her ring. Kai thought that she might not even be able to convince herself to wear this flimsy thing if she wasn't able to exchange it for a protective uniform at any moment in time.

She was waiting facing the door when Jake drove up- she did appreciate the green sports car- but she was maybe a little eager in her answering of the door. She smiled as well as she could for how awkward she felt.

"Hey." She replied automatically, stepping out and closing the door. She self consciously smoothed the front of her dress, trying to keep from curling her shoulders in. "Um. Nice car. Uh. Clever. We won't need to find parking." She offered lamely, trailing off as she finished her thought. "I'm sure the place will be nice. Um. Also you look nice."

Kai nearly ran to her seat in the car as she tried to hide the red that was burning her cheeks. Could she be any worse at this?! Because she was rather feeling like the answer was no. And she couldn't even come up with a better word than 'Nice.' She was going to be screaming at herself later.

Wow, she looked great. Granted, she always looked great. It made Jake wonder for a moment if he was dressed well enough for the situation. Well, all right, he knew that he was dressed up as well as he could be, but that was little consolation when you were escorting an island goddess… or at least, that’s how he always felt when he was around her: Just a clumsy, brute of a man next to her.

And maybe he should stop thinking in circles? Yeah, that would be awesome.

He looked back at the green sports car and immediately felt that it had been a much better idea in his head than in execution. They were both Lanterns. Why the hell did they need cars? This was just him hot-shotting for her, and it was stupid, and… “Yeah, it… it made sense… I thought…” Abruptly, he shut up, not sure what else he was supposed to say. What had he thought? He probably hadn’t thought, not much at least. Yeah, Lantern business was impressive, sure, but not really to other lanterns, not unless you could do something crazy, which this definitely wasn’t.

God damn it.

He sat down in the car, which did, naturally, rev up just like a real one as he pulled out down the street. He’d already made it, no sense in not using it now, right? They headed down the street, Jake’s eyes fixed on the road, looking for something to say as much as looking for his next turn. “So… um… your sister’s settled in all right?” It was, he figured, a legitimate question, considering how often he dragged her off somewhere to do something dangerous. Also, it was something to say, which was better than saying nothing, which was the only other thing he could think of just then.

The very idea that Kai was an island goddess would have sent her into wild laughter. She was barely holding together on the best of days- she was not even remotely worthy of worship. All that being said, and it became so much more impressive that when he looked at her like that- she kind of did feel like an island goddess. Something to do with having a guy like that looking at her like that.

Tldr Jake was incredibly handsome. If she had known that he was questioning his outfit she would have laughed- herself being so worried that her outfit was too formal.

She settled into the car, not even questioning the green sports car. Perhaps it was unimpressive to other trained lanterns- but Kai was still learning. And honestly even if she was trained? She had spent so much time cuddling up to him in his various constructs that it was perfectly normal and kind of nice to be in one again.

Kai would have been happy to turn to him and express that, Maybe delaying their trip by quite a while- until he went and mentioned his sister. Kai was fairly simple. If her blood was pumping, and adrenaline was in her veins- then it didn't matter too much what the circumstances were. Otherwise? She was freaky but the mention of her kid sister was still distinctly not arousing.

Pursing her lips for a second, she sighed and smiled instead of pouting. This was good, she had to remind herself, he wanted to know about the people she cared about. A very dately thing to do. "She's settled in fairly well. A friend is teaching her magic which is a little terrifying but she's having fun which is the important bit." Kai spoke the last few words with enthusiasm- that blinked out of existence the moment she realized she didn't have anything else to ask.

She tapped her fingers lightly on her thigh as she thought. Finally she went with the first thing she could think of, even though it was a patently awful question. "How's unlocking your white ring going? What's your favourite colour so far?"

Her question, asked innocently, had about as much of an effect on him as his asking about her sister had on her libido. No, he wasn’t trying to dodge the question, but was this something he’d been ready to just volunteer? Oh, hell no. “It’s… going all right,” he allowed, considering his answer carefully. “The other lights… they’re… hard.” He was ready to say that he didn’t think that the white ring had been really meant for him, but that thought died in his head because he knew it was a lie. Once he unlocked a new color, it was there for him, as much as he wanted. The only real question was whether or not he wanted to want them. “I think indigo is the most comfortable one to use. Blue, I’m still getting the hang of. Red and yellow… well, you kind of saw those.” And, unfortunately, she also got to see that he could use them to devastating effect. He could do it and he could enjoy it, which was, to say the least, disconcerting to him. “I still haven’t managed orange yet, though, or violet, so it’s still not at full power. I’m not going to even pretend to know what any of that means.” And that much, at least, was true, though not true the same way all around. He knew why he couldn’t use the orange light yet: He just couldn’t let himself go to greed like that, in part because he knew what a monster Larfleez was and didn’t want to be like that. He didn’t know, though, what exactly he was missing out on by doing that. He had no idea, though, why he couldn’t use violet or what he was missing out on, and he didn’t know where to start with what it meant that this ring wasn’t giving him the full range of the spectrum. Unlike the Guardians, he couldn’t really see how it might be important to have the full range of all seven corps.

Not wanting to really deal with this line of thought, he reached over and squeezed her hand, hoping (possibly in vain) that more wouldn’t be asked on the subject. Why, exactly, did people date? This was unnecessarily complicated.

“Here we are,” he said, stopping the car outside a tall building that was all curves and spiralling platforms. The whole thing was open air, and the higher platforms (which is, of course, what he had reserved) had an unnaturally clear view of the ever-changing night sky of the Hub. Jake got out, hurrying around to open Kai’s door (since that was apparently what you were supposed to do on a date), and then let the car evaporate into motes of emerald light again. More than a little nervously, Jake swallowed and headed into the building, taking a moment to debate whether or not he should hold her hand before finally (and awkwardly) taking it, only to have to let go again to open the door for her. Oh my god I suck at this...

Kai nodded along with his words, not entirely certain what kind of response she had been hoping for from him. Perhaps something along the lines of how violet was- on account of the skimpy outfit it put her in? But then maybe he was trying not to objectify her. Which was unfortunate seeing as she had the distinct feeling that they would both be less uncomfortable if this were a purely physical affair.

Idly she twisted her own ring slightly, still curious about the violet energy it offered her. "I have started taking sort of... lessons. In how to use the violet ring to it's maximum power." Which was sort of the reason she had asked him out properly after everything. Kai had too many questions about what that would mean if things went poorly- if her heart was broken, would she be unable to use the ring any longer? Would it find a new host?

She didn't even want to think about the pain she would be in personally. Yet, Kai's small green sliver had been growing slowly and steadily, so she assumed it couldn't be as easy as one bad date... Right?

She did smile at him brightly when he squeezed her hand, taking the movement as prompting to twine her fingers with his so that he couldn't escape too easily.

Before he let go of it. And then took it. Then let go of it again. It was almost comforting how awkward that was- meant that she wasn't the only one at least a little out of her depth. Or, well she assumed. For all Kai knew, he could just be ambivalent on her and not wanting to unnecessarily lead her on- which would be dumb if he was taking her on a date. He wasn't that kind of guy.

But maybe her awkward was rubbing off, and even though he was likely used to wining and dining all kinds of women, he didn't know what to do with her- it being her first proper date of all time after all. She reached for the door at the same time he did, before stepping to the side at the last second because damn of course he would try and open the door, what was she doing?!

Walking in, she hesitated before reaching for his hand again. "It's very lovely here." Kai mumbled finally, not knowing what else to say.

Stars above, she hoped the food was good so that she'd have something to at least talk about.
