PostSubject: New Year's Eve with the Boys (Jari)   Sun Oct 12, 2014 6:44 am

After a lovely couple of days with his parents, Mari and Jake had left America and gone back to England. Mostly because Jake didn't wish to burden his parents for too long, and because he'd found he preferred the space away from them so that Mari and he didn't have to worry about others feelings towards their closeness. Jake had taken Victoria back to Hogwarts first, because the witch had said she wanted to head back early.

After that, Jake had the time off until the second of January, so he was free to spend that time with Marilyn, or go to the gym, or just relax out of her way with his university books.

As New Year came closer, Jake had told Mari that his friends from Moose Jaw had invited him back for a relatively large party. He knew, of course, that parties were not Marilyn's thing, but he wanted her to come with him. It would be their first New Year together, and though Jake didn't mind spending it at her flat, he would much rather party the year away.

Marilyn had agreed to come with him, which had made Jake very happy indeed. So after booking a room in the hotel of the party, Jake had apparated with Mari to Canada, enjoying the familiar cold feeling as they made their way in to the hotel. It was a few hours later, Jake was led on the bed watching Mari getting ready for their evening. She always spent time making herself ready, not that Jake understood, the witch was beautiful, without makeup, with makeup. It made no difference to him what she wore, but he appreciated the work she put in.

Stretching slightly on the bed, Jake got up and padded over to the witch, wrapping his arms around her from behind and kissing her shoulder. "Do you think I should have a shave before we head down, or leave the slight stubble?" He asked the witch, it was tidy, but he wasn't sure if it looked okay or not. Looking up at her in the mirror, Jake smiled slightly. "You look beautiful, by the way." He added, pressing his lips lightly to her neck.

He knew they had to be downstairs soon though, so he didn't go further, especially when the witch had spent time on perfecting her look, he doubted she'd appreciate him undoing it all now. "My clothes in the bag?" Jake asked, knowing he'd put what he wanted on her bed in England for their overnight bag. However, Jake didn't like the idea of just going through Marilyn's things. It was rude, after all.

Marilyn had been severely apprehensive about going to the party in Canada with Jake's friends, but she had spent some time with them when Jake was still playing and hadn't seen Samar in a while, not to mention that the way Jake's face lit up when she said she'd go with him was worth the anxiety that came with it. Unlike during Christmas however, this time Marilyn would be bringing Jagger along, thankfully the hotel was dog friendly. So Jagger, now, was laying at the foot of their bed, waiting for them to leave whilst Mari got ready. Her silver dress clung to her frame and she knew she looked enticing, just another course of confidence for the uncertain witch. And it was such an eye-catcher that Marilyn kept everything else simple. Her nails glinted silver in the light as did her eyelids and her lips donned a smoky grey that was more seductive than anything else.

Her scars were not at all hidden or covered, on the contrary, her hair was pulled up at chin length, revealing the scars down her neck as well, which were soon met with a gentle kiss from Jake and bringing Marilyn to laugh.

"Do you think I should have a shave before we head down, or leave the slight stubble?"

"I like it when you've got stubble," she mused, casting a charm over her makeup so it wouldn't smear or wear off, a smirk on her face, "Thank you and yes, they're in the bag." Now finally ready the witch sauntered over to Jagger and bent down to fasten his harness, the sign 'Service Dog' on each side and a grip for her to hold in to in a crowd. "You ready, boy? Hmm? You've got this," she gently played with his ears and Jagger nuzzled his face into her hands before letting her stand and put on her heels, her long, tan legs displayed brilliantly by the long leg slit of the dress.

Turning to stand she walked over to where Jake was finishing up and made sure his tie was straight, her hands lingering on his chest, "Hey there, Handsome."

The notion of Marilyn preferring the stubble made Jake smile and nod, knowing he didn't have to worry. Instead he moved to the sink to brush his teeth first, freshening up before he got changed. A few minutes later Jake followed her in to the room, smiling at her interactions with Jagger as he got changed.

It was a nice hotel, obviously, with so many millionaires in a friend circle, it was hardly surprising that they'd picked an expensive place. Which meant a relatively formal attire. After tucking his shirt nicely in to the trousers and pulling on a belt that matched the outfit, Jake turned his attention to his tie in the mirror, tying it carefully just before Marilyn came over, fussing with his tie to make sure it was straight.

"Hey there, Handsome."

Jake simply chuckled at her words, stealing a gentle kiss. "Don't start now, or I might not let you get downstairs." He teased, stepping sideways to grab his wallet and pull on his watch. They wouldn't need a jacket for downstairs. "Ready?" Jake asked, offering his hand out to the witch.

Once she'd taken it, and motioned for Jagger to join them, Jake lead the witch down to the main reception and then through to the party hall. It was busy, as expected, with the medical staff, admin team, coaches, manager, players and the cheerleading squad, it was going to be quite the party. Almost instantly, Jake's lips were pulling up in to a smile. "Shall we go get a drink first?" Jake asked, noticing that there were less people there at the moment and it was probably best for Mari. Moving in that direction, Jake noticed Samar and waved towards the man, who motioned that he would meet them at the bar.

It was only a short while later that the three, or four if you counted Jagger, were reunited, Jake shaking Samar's hand before he greeted Marilyn. "You've brought a big teddy bear with you too!" He added, motioning towards Jagger. He didn't ask why, Samar had always been an understanding man. "How are the two of you?" Samar asked with a warm smile, deciding to move on.

"Don't start now, or I might not let you get downstairs."

Mari kissed him back and chuckled softly, "Tease," she quipped before holding her right hand out for Jagger, her left holding his hand already. Jagger was her her side, his harness in her hand, before you could say 'Quidditch'.

Her grip on both Jaggers harness and Jake's hand tightened momentarily when the emerged into the hall; so many people and little to no familiar faces. Jake must have noticed the change in her demeanor because he was soon guiding her to the less crowded bar to meet up with the one face she recognized in the crowd. Samar. Soon Mari was kissing his cheek in greeting and smiling more genuinly, grateful that Samar didn't ask questions towards why she had to have a service dog with her.

"How are the two of you?"

Mari smiled at the question, realising that they'd started dating far after Jake's time with his team and that perhaps not everyone knew, yet, but figured Samar would know. "Never better" She looked up at Jake fondly and kissed his cheek, "How have you been?"

With Samar there, Jake ordered two beers and Mari's usual cocktail by simply pointing to the name because he refused to ask the bartender for that. Samar was good enough with conversation, so when the witch replied that they were well, Jake simply passed the drinks, accepting the small kiss on his cheek from Marilyn.

"I'm doing very well, thank you. My sister is around somewhere, milling as usual with everyone. I'm glad both of you could make it, we miss Jake's presence to be sure. And obviously his smile is always much bigger when he's with you, or talking of you." He told the witch, smiling towards Jake good naturedly. "I can't say I was overly surprised when he said you were dating." Samar added.

"Well, that is only your reaction, I was quite surprised." Jake replied with a slight chuckle. "Apparently she liked me too, which was... well, I'm still not sure why." He explained, mostly teasing though he did wonder on occasion, but that wasn't for now. "The teams going well?" Jake asked, which made Samar nod in reply.

"Yup, sitting top of the league again. Not as comfortably as when we had you on the team, but comfortable enough." Samar replied with a small shrug. "What about the two of you, is the world of being an Auror as exciting as people believe?" He asked, looking between both of them for an answer.

At Samar's comment that he hadn't been surprised Marilyn flushed slightly, a blush that only intesified at Jake's answer of "Apparently she liked me too, which was... well, I'm still not sure why."

"Oh it's just for your money and looks really.
" she quipped with a grin, accepting her drink with a soft 'thanks' and taking a sip. That was, of course, wildly untrue. Not only was Marilyn in no need of anyone else's money she genuinly cared about Jake and would probably do anything to make him happy, just as he seemed for her. The conversation turned to quidditch and Mari took it as an opportunity to scan the crowd, habit more than anything else.

"What about the two of you, is the world of being an Auror as exciting as people believe?"

Sharing a glance with Jake Mari smiled, "Well the paperwork is certainly not on their info pamphlets for a reason, but I love it, training, class, work, it's brilliant."

"Oh it's just for your money and looks really."

Jake let out a soft chuckle at her words, shaking his head slightly and holding her close to him. "Have to have something going for me." He joked softly, pressing a light kiss to her head. He knew she was teasing, from what he'd seen of her grandparents, he was quite sure that Marilyn had enough money.

"Well the paperwork is certainly not on their info pamphlets for a reason, but I love it, training, class, work, it's brilliant."

Samar laughed at this comment. "That's one thing I'm glad I don't have to do. Quidditch is quite easy going. Play the game, keep fit and you're okay. No paperwork, unless you plan on transferring. Not that I plan to, obviously. I'm very happy here." He explained, and Jake understood completely, the Moose Jaw team was one that made life very comfortable, but he had wanted a little more.

"Is everyone else here?" Jake asked his ex-team mate, he'd happily talk to Samar all evening, but he knew that it would be rude to not at least ask.

"We're all here, Jakey!" Came the voice of a man Jake knew too well. it didn't help that the words were punctuated with his hair being ruffled, which Jake never enjoyed. The only person he didn't mind touching his hair was the witch beside him.

"Hello, Callum!" Jake replied, pulling the young man in to half a hug and clapping him on the back. "Long time no see! Doing well?" He asked.

"Much better now I see you've brought a beautiful woman with you. Mari!" Callum acknowledged, leaning in to kiss the witch's cheek. "You look amazing!" He told the witch with a grin. "Still hanging around with that loser, eh?"

The trio laughed at Samar's remark about paperwork and all in all it was fun, even Marilyn was starting to relax. But of course such things could never stay as nicely as one would like and soon a familiar voice was cutting in and ruffling Jake hair...and kissing her cheek.

"Much better now I see you've brought a beautiful woman with you. Mari!"

Right. Marilyn plucked his hand from her shoulder from the kiss and gently wiped her cheek, "Well since I'm dating Jake I think it's more than appropriate I stick around." her tone wasn't hostile, just cool, unaffected, as if he was not even a factor to think about. Her bracelet had grown somewhat warmer in temperature and Jagger growled at Callum, baring his teeth at his Mistress source of discomfort.

"Wait, Jagger." She murmured, her hand going from his harness to his head. The growling ceased but his teeth remained bared, scarred face scrunched up. The witch simply moved closer to Jake, as if his touch could eradicate the discomfort she felt from Callums greeting, the kiss burning on her cheek.

"Well since I'm dating Jake I think it's more than appropriate I stick around."

Jake could see the witch beside him growing uneasy, so he gently pulled her closer to him. A smile did touch his lips when Callum's face fell with that news, it was satisfying, in a manner. Especially when he took a moment to try and comprehend. Jagger, however wasn't happy, but Jake knew the dog wouldn't do anything without instruction. Or reason.

Callum backed off slightly with the growling. "Ah come on, I was simply teasing." Callum told them, deciding it best to just stay off the subject. "So you two, I guess I should have seen that one coming." He said with a small shrug. "Just remember I got there first though, pal!" He teased, mainly aiming at Jake.

"Only because I'm a gentleman, Cal." Jake told him, not rising to the bait. "But yes, us two. For the last six months." Jake replied, making it quite clear this wasn't anything new and the man before him was not in any way in with a chance.

"Just remember I got there first though, pal!"

"Well you certainly came first."
Marilyn deadpanned, taking another sip of her drink as the group fell silent for a second before what she'd said clicked and even Samar was laughing. The only one not laughing was Callum, but Jaggers bared teeth were still flashing, even if his misstress now wore a smug smirk instead of a grimace.

"But yes, us two. For the last six months."

Jake's words brought a genuine smile to Marilyns face and she leaned over to kiss him sweetly, "And happily so." Mari grinned and leaned into his embrace, "What about you, Samar, anyone special? I hope I can snag Drishti, we haven't spoken in ages."

"Well you certainly came first."

Jake paused for a moment, simply trying to catch up with what Marilyn had said before he burst out laughing. Mari had never shared much about that night with Jake, though to be honest he didn't want to know. But that nugget of information was priceless. Just like the look on Callum's face as she said it. Jake's grin stayed past the laughter, amused by the statement.

The small kiss was welcomed a moment later. Jake was, of course, very smug over what had just happened, and it made him feel good that he'd outdone Callum in more than one manner. "Very happy, I would say." Jake told Marilyn softly, smiling at the witch. Of course, the conversation moved on, and Jake simply remained close to Marilyn for support.

"What about you, Samar, anyone special? I hope I can snag Drishti, we haven't spoken in ages."

"Still single at the moment." Samar replied with a warm smile. From what Jake had seen of the man from many party nights in Moose Jaw, he didn't have the 'need' for women like most men. "Though Drishti is still trying so very hard to change that. You'll find her, I mentioned that Jake and yourself were coming this evening. You know how she is though, always talking to someone!" He explained, though it was good natured.

"Not talking badly about me, are you Sam?" Drishti's voice floated over the music as she joined the group. "Jake! It's lovely to see you again, and of course, Mari!" She acknowledged, moving to kiss Jake's cheek and then Marilyn in turn before noticing Jagger. "Oh wow! He's massive! Can I pet him, or is that not allowed?" She asked, motioning to the harness that clearly showed he was a working dog. "What's his name?" She added as an after thought, smiling at the large dog without a fear in the world.

The "Very happy, I would say" brought a happy blush to Mari's cheeks and they remained practically glued at the hip, smiling in understanding when Samar commented that he was still single, though not for lack of Drishti's trying. And speaking of the witch, she appeared and Marilyn grinned, giving her friend a hug. Now that Jake and Mari no longer attended the games and rarely got to come over to Canada they didn't see each other as much, but both had a love for shopping that wouldn't be stilled and it didn't matter that they wore completely different clothes.

"Oh wow! He's massive! Can I pet him, or is that not allowed?"


Smiling Marilyn set her hand on Jaggers head in signal to stand at ease and he instantly did, looking up at Drishti with his one eye, tongue lolling out the corner of his mouth as he relaxed his face, "Yes, he's friendly until I tell him different, so petting him is allowed, you enjoy it, doncha boy?" the last fragment was directed at Jagger, who under petting truly was a giant teddy bear. "And his name is Jagger."

Jake was happy stood with his old friends, drinking and enjoying the evening. It was relaxing, and Marilyn seemed to be coping very well this evening. Whether that was Jagger's presence, or because she was with friends, Jake didn't know, but it was nice.

As Drishti moved over, Jake smiled as the witch moved to pet Jagger. Fussing over him a lot which the bear of a dog enjoyed very much. "Jagger, such a nice name!" Drishti replied, scratching him behind the ear which seemed to be working the trick as he moved closer to her hands for more.

Comfort set in then, Drishti engaging Marilyn with talk of shopping, fashion and insisting that they simply had to meet up and go shopping some time. Especially seeing as Drishti had found a new range that was mixing her culture with Western culture ("In a good way though, none of this trashy mixes that simply ruins our culture!"). Jake had moved in to conversations with the boys, about upcoming fixtures, and inviting him to come and watch the next game. Jake agreed to come when he could, but explained that Saturdays were now very busy, but didn't explain further than that.

The hours ran by quickly, with alcohol flowing freely. Jake was a little bit past tipsy now, in control of his actions and aware of what he was doing, but tipsy enough. "How long until New Year?" The young man asked Mari, holding out his wrist because the semi-darkness of the room and the fact he had alcohol in his system was making it a little difficult to see now.

After a long and invigorating talk about fashion and new lines the two witches made a date to meet and go shopping together, something they hadn't done in ages, and somewhere along her third drink, well into the conversation, Mari smiled to herself, because this was normal. A life. Making plans, having friends, celebrating together. This was what she had thought she'd never have. And it was fun.

Mainly because she knew she was safe what with Jagger and Jake at her side. So she even danced with Drishti and Jake here and there until time had passed to where Jake and her were both a bit past tispy, Jake more so than Marilyn apparently when he asked her how long until midnight. "Twenty minutes? I think so," she answered, drink empty and on a table somewhere, Jagger by her side independantly so she didn't need to hold his harness and could wrao her arms around Jake's neck, smiling, kissing him softly, "Why, what are you thinking?" the woman inquired.

The couple had danced intermittently throughout the night, switching partners now and again before Jake went to the bar to keep them hydrated - or as hydrated as alcohol could ever make you. It was nice, Jake had decided a short while ago as he'd seen a warm smile on Mari's lips. A genuine smile too, he amended only a moment later.

As the evening drew closer to the hour they'd all been waiting for, Jake was pondering to himself how he'd really like to go in to the next year. Kissing Marilyn, of that much he was sure.

"Why, what are you thinking?"

"Just of how it's best to see in the New Year with you." Jake told the witch, pressing a gentle kiss to her lips and smirking. "But, having you here is quite enough." He mused, kissing her a little deeper than before.
