Ajaccio had to admit he was still feeling rather nervous about going to the event with Nicole, after her yellow rose but the yes to the dance he wasn’t too sure where they stood. But he was also excited, the people he’d been to the balls with in the past had always been fun but he’d always enjoyed spending the time with Nicole most and after the blind dating, he had felt particularly keen to actually go with her. He liked her and was just very unsure of how best to raise it. However, he was sure this would be good. As promised he had done all of his work before he knew she would get there. The camera now tucked into his pocket, expanded by magic to accommodate it and he was wiaiting by the entrance for her to get there, feeling more nervous than he had for any of his other dance dates.

Nicole didn't know why she was so nervous tonight. She'd gone to a school dance with Ajax before. It wasn't a big deal. Except that was a lie. She knew exactly why she was so nervous and it had everything to do with Ajax's pink rose and her own lingering disappointment every time he'd not asked her to any dances since their second year.She scrubbed a hand over her face, hoping she hadn't smudged her eyeliner. Had she really been crushing on Ajax for that long. What a mess.

Closing her eyes and taking a deep breath, Nicole forced herself to walk up the last few steps up from the dungeons, straightening her dress one last time before walking over to where she'd seen Ajax near the door. "Hey," she said, giving Ajax a timid smile. "Uhm, Happy Valentine's." Merlin, how had she ever had a conversation with anyone before Nicole thought bitterly. Objectively, she knew Ajax was exactly the same person she'd always hung out with and talked to, but tonight it was like she'd forgotten how to even hold a conversation. She needed to calm down. And soon.

Ajaccio glanced round as he heard someone greet him and his smile was immediately shy. She was just so very pretty to him. SHe looked so cool and nice. He nodded, ”Happy valentine’s day Nicole,” he replied with a little smile trying get get himself together and be normal in the face of this. ”You look really nice,” he complimented as then held out his arm to her and decided maybe the first thing they should do to help get over this initial thing was dance. ”Can I interest you in a dance?” he asked, trying to keep his tone light and casual though he didn’t feel like he was managing it. It was just the initial part that was hard and maybe it was in part due to the lack of clarity of where they both stood.

Nicole felt her face warm when Ajax said she looked nice, resisting the urge the smooth down her dress or hair again, though it was a close thing. "Thank you," she said, both in response to the compliment and when Ajax held out his arm, feeling her heart speed up at the contact as she took it. She briefly wondered if Ajax could feel her pulse pounding where her hand was resting on his arm, staring down at their looped arms for a moment before forcing herself to look up at the dance around them. It was such a stark contrast to how things had gone with Eric it almost made Nicole's head spin.

"Yeah- Yeah dancing sounds good," she said, hoping her hands or feet wouldn't be as wobbly as her voice. "Did you learn to dance in France or something?" She asked, trying to fall back on a familiar line of teasing with Ajax and hoping it didn't come out too strained. She was finally getting the romantic date she'd always really wanted and her nerves were messing everything up.

Ajaccio smiled at her and nodded as she said dancing sounded good. He began moving towards the dance floor. ”No, I had a tutor once in Portugal who was a flamenco dancer,” he told her with a serious tone before laughing lightly. He turned to face her on the dance floor, his hand lingering near hers and his other moving to rest lightly on her waist. ”You’d be surprised though how often dance gets covered in different places in Physical education or sports classes and less surprisingly how often I was told, ‘Ajax please, sit this out’” he joked lightly with a little grin.

Nicole shook her head fondly, feeling some of the nerves ease off a bit at Ajax's answer. "Of course you did," she said dryly. Her nerves ratcheted right back up however as they reached the dancefloor and Ajax rested his hands in place. She laid her hand on his shoulder, taking his other hand and trying not to think how sweaty her palms probably were. "I wish we had more of that at this school, sounds a lot less terrifying that flying lessons," she said, trying to get up the nerve to step closer to Ajax but chickening out at the last minute, resigning herself to a gentle sway as they began dancing.

"This is nice. By the way. I'm uh. Glad you asked me to the dance," Nicole said quietly, mostly directed to Ajax's chest. It was strange how this felt so much easier and yet also that much harder than things had been with Noel at Yule. Just the thought of maybe kissing Ajax made Nicole's imagination skitter away in panic, but at least she wasn't worried about searching around for Eric this time, her whole attention focused on her own date.
