Emilia's holidays had been wonderful, but also very strange. She still wasn't quite over the fact that she had been on a date, with Derek. But it was definitely reality, and she needed to talk about it with someone. She had already talked a little with Sapphire and Arvel about the situation, but then Derek himself had shown up and it had been a little embarrassing. Not that it was not wonderful to see Derek, but she didn't want him to overhear her gushing about him to her friends. It was strange to think that she had friends now, at least, she knew Sapphire was one. Arvel was quiet, much like herself, but she did like him a lot. But there was one friend Emilia really wanted to talk to now, and it was Jacob. The two of them had always shared their thoughts and feelings, ever since the first time they met. He made her feel safe, much like Derek did, but in a very different way. They had helped each other make sense of things in the past, and she felt like she needed that now. She had asked him to meet her in the student lounge, and now she was waiting at a table for him to appear. She looked around uncertainly every few moments, a little worried that someone else might try to sit down at the table. Emilia knew she would have a hard time sending anyone away, but she really was hoping for a private conversation with Jacob.

Jacob had been glad to plan a time to meet up with Emilia. He'd never told her, but in some ways he considered her one of his better friends. Things were always just easy with her, even though he usually had some of his more difficult conversations and realizations when he was with her. It was just not as exhausting as some of his other friendships. He didn't have to pretend to be someone he wasn't around her, which was why he'd resolved that today would be the day he told her a lot of things he hadn't yet. Knowing that she might be uncomfortable if she had to wait too long, Jacob was jogging to the lounge. He'd left a little late, but he knew Emilia was sometimes shy and she'd be too nice to say no if another student wanted space wherever she was sitting whereas he would be more than fine to tell them no. They were different that way, but it was a good difference. Entering the lounge, Jacob spotted Emilia right away and grinned.

"Emilia!" he greeted as he took the empty seat she'd held. "Happy New Year!" he added. It had been a while since they'd had a catch up. "How were your holidays?"

Emilia was nervously tapping her fingers on the table as she waited, hoping no one else would come sit here. She looked up and smiled as she saw Jacob almost running into the student lounge. He spotted her and she smiled back at him, happy to see her friend. As Jacob took his seat, Emilia relaxed. She no longer had to be nervous about strangers taking his seat or trying to sit at the table. Jacob would tell them to go away if they tried. "Hi Jacob, Happy New Year!" She said back to him. "My holidays were amazing, Jacob I have so much to tell you." She said, blushing a little. She was excited to talk about it with him, but it was a little embarrassing too. "Oh, but first. How was your break?" She didn't want to launch right into her own story without asking Jacob about his break first.

Jacob raised his eyebrows. He'd been expecting a certain level of enthusiasm, but Emilia's reaction was different from what he was expecting. Not in a bad way. Just in a different one, and his curiosity was piqued. Jacob waved a hand, not wanting to dim the mood by talking about his lousy holiday. He did want some advice from her, but it could wait. "We'll get to that. Now, spill" he added, full of curiosity. He wore an amused grin on his face as he waited for what he was about to hear. He didn't know what it was, but judging by Emilia's expression it was going to be good.

Emilia was relieved when Jacob seemed interested in her story and told her to tell it. She was also a bit nervous, but really needed it off her chest. "I went on a date." She said softly, as if she was a little afraid to be overheard. "Derek asked me to the ball last semester, and while we were there he asked me to go on a date with him." She still looked like she could barely believe it. "And then... and then we went. During the holidays." She added, looking both pleased and embarrassed. "It was nice." She added shyly, glancing at Jacob nervously.

"What?!" he exclaimed, a sound that probably drew the attention of everyone in the room. He hadn't meant to be so loud. He was just surprised. "Sorry" he murmured to the room before turning back to Emilia. "What?!" he asked again, this time in a stage whisper. Behind his glasses, Jacob's eyes were wide with excitement for his friend and some envy. He'd never been on a date before and he wanted to experience one too. "Was he a good dancer? Did you have fun at the ball? Where'd he take you on your date? Did he pay? Did. You. Kiss?" he ended the last question slowly, punctuating each word with a tap on the table, a look of amusement mixed with unbridled enthusiasm at this conversation on his face. The other questions had been in a rush, flung at Emilia as they had crossed his mind. Already more were entering it, but he bit them back, not wanting to overwhelm her. He just needed to know. "Merlin, Emilia. A date" he marvelled, still working hard to keep his voice down so he wouldn't embarrass her. He knew she was shy.

Emilia shushed Jacob as he showed his surprise pretty loudly, she flushed as people turned to look at them. She shrugged helplessly as he repeated his surprised exclamation. She couldn't explain how this had happened to her any better than he could. Her eyes widened as Jacob started to ask questions, an embarrassed squeak escaping her as he asked if they kissed. She held up a hand to stop him from asking more, even though she was pretty sure he was done. "Uh, well... he is a great dancer..." She said slowly, trying to focus more on the less embarrassing questions. "We did have fun, we went to Madam Puddifoots and... uh, we didn't kiss." She murmured the last word, shrugging again. "At least... not yet, I think." She added quietly. "We already talked about a second date. Maybe... maybe then? I don't know... should we have?" She suddenly looked concerned, biting her lip. "I've never kissed anyone before." She admitted, her voice almost a whisper. "What if I'm horrible at it?"
