It was rare to find time off from the council; the job always one for calling all hands on deck but there were moments where Donovan would sneak away. Moments that he could find to himself. So that’s what he did as he walked through the park. Mossy green hues watched as people enjoyed the warm spring weather. Picnics going on, people playing around with Frisbees and kites, even a makeshift baseball game was going on. As he glanced at all the smiling faces, he couldn’t help but feel a twinge of jealousy. The envy coming from the blissful ignorance that some of these people got to live in. He was born into the supernatural world after having grown up in Vrevale as a kid but during his teen years he sent away before being able to come back after his parents had died. He couldn’t help but feel like he was missing out on something. To be able to not feel the heavy weight that came with such knowledge. God, he really does need to get out more. However, he knew that some people probably knew just like him.
He pulled himself from his thoughts and went to sit on the park bench that faced the fountain. He sat back and relaxed for a moment. Sometimes it felt nice to be able to feel the sun’s warmth on skin after feeling like he’s been hiding out in the dark. Little things were sometimes a luxury. That’s when he glanced around before spotting who looked somewhat familiar. As he thought about it, he remembered seeing her during one of the council’s meeting. She was the vampire elder when the council spelled some daylight rings. He knew there was a chance to test the waters of talking to her but she seemed nice enough from what he remembered. It beats him sitting around here alone.
“Hi there,” he greeted with a soft grin once he started to approach her. “Rose, isn’t it?” He said as he continued before stopping near her. “I was from that meeting where you got your...” he trailed off as he pointed to a ring on his index finger to gesture what the meeting was really about. “I just wanted to see how well they are doing?” He smiled lightly at the vampiress. He wasn’t very good at small talk.
