The Patriot couldn't help but let a grin crack about her fashion statement. He was a bit impressed with himself to be honest. He owed Sean a burger. Make that two. He mentally took note. "Well even if I wasn't as Italian as I am, that yelp app told me it was pretty good." he winked playfully.

Listening to her tale he almost felt sad. This woman so smart, clever and beautiful called herself not much. "I think being related to Zell might make for one heck of a story, but let's save that one for another time. You aren't just a secretary. Your smile is literally lighting up this room. You told me the genus and species of flowers that my silly brain just went 'they pretty', I can relate to the one long what the heck. Your inhale after a long day told me all I needed to know about that one."
Andrew spoke kindly and gently. His voice while complimenting her trying to raise her up.  

Andrew looked at the waiter and smiled
"Avremo un ordine di una bottiglia del tuo vino rosso preferito, per favore. Oh and I'll also take a water with lime as well that sounds refreshing." he said as the man spoke back to him in Italian letting him know their red wine would be right out with the waters.

"I figured this was a special enough occasion to crack a bottle of red wine. I told him to pick his favorite. I trust his taste." Andrew said turning back and looking At Vira.

He shifted in his chair slightly and smoothed his pants down. "You want to know about me? Well I'm a bit of an open book. I'll tell you though since you asked nicely." he said with that kindness still lingering in his eyes.

"So my mom and dad are..." his eyes changed for the first time from kindness to pain. He cleared his throat a bit. Catching himself. "My um. My mom and dad were your average middle class Bostonians. My dad ran a painting business and my mom was a nurse for old people. I had a younger sister too. Dad and My Pa were big on respect and being a gentleman. Old school Italians. The Talons kinda became my family, and as most people saw I blew up over New York when we were invaded, trying to hold that family together." He looked deep in her eyes, the pain subsiding seeing the kindness she had in hers.

"I like to think if my old man were still here he'd want me to be the kind of guy holding doors, and pulling out chairs for a lady kind enough to share dinner with me." he smiled.

"I hope I'm making him proud, y'know, up there. I went to NYU on a football scholarship and majored in psychology. Lastly, the Phoenix isn't who I am anymore. I recently took the moniker The Patriot, but if Phoenix is easier to remember I won't be mad, seems Zell fills your head with enough info as it is."
He chuckled as their wine arived.

"So sorry Mr.Jones I left the ring in the kitchen. I'll be right back."
Vira clearly heard that. Andrew laughed and put his hand on the man's shoulder.
"I'm not Mr.Jones, please make sure you don't bring me some guy's most important night in a box, Guiseppe." The waiter laughed at his mistake and looked at Vira almost shrugging. "Well thank you, the wine is on the house for your kindness." The man was off quickly and dropped fresh bread between them and placed menus.

"Excuse the hectic night, our GM is out sick."
"It's not a problem friend. I just don't want this beautiful lady thinking I'm Mr.Jones, or I'm proposing to her on a first date" he jested with Guiseppe.
"Ah, well I hope the date is fantastic."
He was off again.

"So...that certainly would've been awkward." Andrew smiled. The candle had gone out as the waiter was rushing. He took care of it. Staring at the wick his beautiful white fire began to dance atop the wax with the golden sparkles flickering like small heartbeats. It made her eyes even more captivating.

He continued to keep his eye contact. "Con artist brother and related to Zell Atterrius. That's got to be interesting... and again certainly a ball of what the heck." he smiled bright again. The light catching his own eyes making them pop a bit. His square jaw more pronounced as the candle flickered. "It's not always saving the day though. Since you asked who Phoenix is. I've had my share of whoopings and lessons. Some cuz of my own arrogance when I was younger. Some because some people truly just want to watch the world burn. I just want to make it a little bit better than when I got here."

Vira cocked her head to the side with the revelation that Andrew was speaking a different language. She nodded slightly, seeming impressed for a moment. All she could catch from the statement was “please” and “Lime water”. The reason being was the likeness of the word “please“ in both Italian and Spanish. The other part because it was in plain English. She was counted as impressed, though seemed enraptured as Andrew began to speak about his past.

It was a strange thing to witness. From the time he had stepped into the office he had been collected. Head been kind, he had been funny and he had been respectful. But in almost an instant his kindness turned to pain, and it was the type of pain Vira knew to identify. The pain that came with Truth and honesty. He shared a little about his Mother being a geriatirc nurse, and his father having been an entrepreneur within the painting business. She wasn’t entirely sure if that meant he was an artist, or if he painted buildings and rooms. Either way it was a humble profession, and Vira knew those kinds of jobs were the ones most often taken for granted.

Andrew went on to explain that he would like to think that his parents were proud of him. She smiled, acknowledging that pain herself. She would hope that her mother were proud of her, and her father as well. Unfortunately with both of these figures removed from her life she was left to wonder, just as he was. Hoping to say the least. She nodded along with the story. Pain like this was not something one could feign, and the feeling of familial bonds being forged was always a subject of interpretation. But she found him to be honest, and in a way imperfectly pure with himself. He stated about how he had a scholarship for football, which VIra automatically couldn’t help but look questioningly.

”I can’t see you in a football uniform. Honestly.” She said with a small giggle, shaking her head. She then cleared her throat and just as she was about to speak the waiter seemed to approach again with a look of panic all over his face. She immediately found herself on edge, thinking the worst was happening. Then suddenly she heard him say about leaving a ring in the kitchen, and referring to Andrew as a Mr.Jones. She was puzzled beyond all belief, and then actively began laughing, the tension melting away for a moment as she covered her mouth, silencing herself. ”Oh you poor thing.” She seemed to almost whine, feeling terrible for the waiter as he seemed to scramble for his mind.

Andrew certainly handled the waiter very well, and he was truly sympathetic to Mr.Jones and his bride to be, but Vira felt so bad for the man that had just fumbled this event for those two. The waiter returned after just a moment, still frazzled as he explained that the GM was out sick. It truly wasn’t her problem, but she felt the need to stop him there, wanting to help him as best she knew how. Andrew had informed him that this was their first date, and the young man wished them well. But Vira then stopped him.

”Giuseppe, I need you to do me a favor, okay?” She asked. The waiter looked to her, he was certainly frazzled from the chaotic demands of all around him, he was looking a little more diaphoretic than most people did. ”I need you to NOT tell the man you forgot the ring, okay? That would be a horrible way for her to find out this was happening. Instead I need you to remember, what is the woman eating?” She asked, it seemed like a very strange request, but as he seemed to squint, trying his hardest to recall he stated.

“Uhm, she ordered lemon pepper fish, because something about deep fried is not an option anymore?”

“Okay, so she isn’t a Vegan or a vegetarian, because she is eating fish. But maybe the oils are something she is allergic to. I need you to go and have the finest dessert WITHOUT any of the nuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, anything that resembles the oils you use to deep fry. You have that dessert made and you place the ring in it, and you take it to them after their meals. Since the wine is free, I’ll pay for the dessert. If he asks you why you waited, you tell him it was the best way for him to tell her he was the sweetest part of his life.” She said as she leaned back. Looking over to Patriot she couldn’t help her smile from cracking wide open as she shook her head, cheeks flushed with embarrassment for the man. Andrew had stated that things would have been awkward, to which she smiled and nodded.

“Look, you’re...amazing. But on the first date. THAT would be more bold than Zell’s move. And he ended up accidentally almost getting Sean arrested during his proposal.” She chuckled, the candlelight was a nice touch for the moment as she tried to decompress the internal stress that had been building since the waiter came by in a panic. She reached down and picked up the glass set before her, she noticed in the shadow that the water glass had a small wedge of citrus fruit within, though the color was not at all what she was expecting. The yellowish skin made her sigh. It was a very common mistake, but she wasn’t about to make a scene. She simply reached over and took the wide-necked glass and took a sip of the deep crimson wine. The taste was quite sweet in some fashion, though the linkering tingle it left on the tongue left a bittersweet aftertaste. It was sublime, to say the least. She listened as Andrew continued to share more of himself with her, he eventually acknowledged the “Ball of what the heck” comment and then shifted immediately back to his conclusion. It was an enrapturing story to say the least.

“Well I think that’s a rather...simplistic goal. More people should think that way.” She said with a smile, the fire danced across the table and cast strange shadows as Vira had taken her menu and turned it sideways. ”Andrew...I have something to tell you...” She said after a moment, suddenly a smile cracked as she closed her eyes.

”I’m allergic to garlic...I don’t know what I was thinking.” She said, seeming to have genuine humor over it. She placed a hand on her face and began to rub it slightly. ”Since you’re so honest and open with me...I have to say. I am FORGETFUL. I have to carry a daily planner everywhere I go. It’s terrible. The waiter’s little fumble is me on a daily basis. Just with plant genetics and appointments instead of wedding rings.” She said with a small chuckle. She was both embarrassed and somehow relieved to put it out there that her mind was chaotic and unorganized. She couldn’t even remember the last time she openly admitted the fact she couldn’t follow a straight line of thought for more than thirty seconds. She leaned onto the table slightly and seemed to search for a moment within her mind.

”But for what it’s worth. I’m a good judge of character. I’m a terrible judge of distance and time, but I am great at character. I think, given everything I’ve seen and heard about you. Patriot, or Phoenix or, whomever you say you are. Andrew is the one your parents would truly be proud of. A mask is a mask at the end of the day. The man behind it; that’s the one that matters. You’re a good man, Mr.Jones.” She said as she raised her wine glass for him to meet with his own glass and a playful smirk.

He laughed and jokingly flexed his muscles. "You mean you can't picture a helmet on this goofy mug catching a ball. I was number 85. I'd even show you photos if you'd like." he he said pretending to gesture throwing a football.

He stared at her like time might never move again while she perfectly explained to the waiter how to make up for his goof. The detail she gave. The kindness in her voice. Almost like she was pulling this straight from a movie. Andrew's eyes widened and he nodded along agreeing her idea was fantastic.

"I'm far from amazing, but yes that would be bold to say the least." he smirked shaking his head and sipping his water. Which he nearly spit out."You are?!" he whispered planting his hands firmly to his face. "Of all places, of course I take you to the one that probably puts garlic in their water!" he whispered through his hands still embarrassed.

"Believe me I get how hectic life can be. I just got lucky and have a really good memory. I don't think I could forget tonight if I tried at this point, and I don't want to."

"Yet early I saw how you worked. I don't think you give yourself enough credit. So if I'm to take your compliments here's some of mine. This is possibly the most fun I've had in years. You're smile is absolutely gorgeous. The way you can type and insult Zell at the same time is almost a super power, and you're a good woman yourself Ms.Lee." he raised his wine glass and clinked hers before taking a sip.

It was dry but tasty. Went down smooth. "We can go to another restaurant, there's like 10 around this area. I'd rather you enjoy a first date than it end up you just getting allergy filled food." he joked at her. Sipping the wine once more. He looked at her and looked down shaking his head. "Of course I pick the garlic capital."

”A helmet? For Footba-OH! Right. American Football! Yes!” Vira said as her head shook slightly. This entire time she had imagined him in what would have been a soccer uniform. She couldn’t see him running the field and playing Soccer at all. But the concept of a rugby styled game. That she could definitely see him at! ”Absolutely, at some point I’ll want to see!” Vira stated, not imagining that he had any pictures on his phone at that moment.

She laughed at Andrew’s reaction and her own stupidity when it came to the remembrance of her Garlic allergy. At least he had a great sense of humor and didn’t mind laughing about it. Though she felt bad that he almost seemed to try and take the blame. How could he have known that she had a garlic allergy? He did nothing wrong, this was something they had to laugh about.

“Type and insult Zell? When did I-?” She began thinking back, her brain internally making a small dial-up noise as she tried to span the work day. Most of it was too anxious and excited to actually go on a date for the first time in several years. But then her mind plopped down and there was nothing but black. “Exhibit A...I can’t even remember dissing my boss.” She said with a small chuckle. She placed her water aside towards the edge of the table, being particularly careful to not let it spill.

The wine was a good vintage, well aged and fermented. The taste was sweet, but then shifted to an almost bitter taste. Most importantly it seemed to flow smoothly. Vira was wondering if that would be the moral of the story. If maybe the sweetness in her life was offset by the more bitter moments. It was hardly the time to be contemplative of the past, or the future. Now was strictly a moment to be lived NOW, not to be wasted with fleeting memories or endless possibilities. She set her glass down and seemed to lean backwards a little, relaxing into the ciar with the same formal posture she had since she arrived.

“This is fine. I forget about it so frequently that Zell had an Epi attached to my keychain. A little glowing green light.” She said with a smile and a slight shrug, playing off the fact that this was perhaps the most garlic-filled place. ”You picked good. Now I just need to make sure that I don’t order anything with Garlic.”

”So do you have any recommendations?”

Well that was a bullet dodged. Not the kind he was accustomed to dealing with, however rewarding nonetheless. "I'd love to show you what I looked like in college, scoring on the other team."he continued goofing around. Something about this felt so organic. It was just like talking to someone he's known forever. From the lists of "how to get back out there" he would never admit to reading...this was going so much better.

It seemed like him trying to make her feel less bad worked.
"Example A noted, but it's ok. You are clearly pretty talented at organizing if you gotta deal with your boss stuffing that brain of yours full of info. I imagine most of his meetings go more like the guys with the suits than with me. I guess being his husband's best friend for the better part of a decade has it's advantages of a smoother get together."

Sometimes he didn't have to literally save the day to save the day. Their waiter came back by him with a smile. He laughed "I guess your idea worked well, look behind my left shoulder." Andrew smiled wide. He could hear the man proposing to the woman. His heart warmed. "One day I want to be that kind of happy." he laughed quietly so the freshly engaged couldn't hear him. The restaurant clapped and Vira's date clapped like it was a golf event nodding his head.

"What do I recommend? I would go with a white sauce. They don't add garlic in those and they're yummy. Other than that I'll make sure... actually one second."

He grabbed the waiter's attention once more. "Giuseppe, so che il tuo manager non è qui. È imperativo che l'aglio non tocchi il cibo. È terribilmente allergica. Per favore, rendilo molto chiaro. Grazie."

"Oh of course! No garlic at all sir! I promise!"

"Well I suppose that solved that." he crossed one leg over the other and looked at the clock on the wall. Only an hour had gone by. Perfect. He wanted as much time as possible.

"Anyways, yea Guiseppe will make sure you're set so I'd suggest seafood or chicken with a white sauce. People are iffy about mushrooms but that pairs well with chicken and pasta with a wonderful cream sauce...I sound like my Papa." he exhaled out of his nose with the comedy.

"Oh!" he pulled his phone from his pocket and quickly flipped and slide it across the table. It was him flexing in his football uniform with the punter on one arm and the kicker on the other. Number 85 across his chest. and helmet in front of them. The three laughing in the photograph. "If you swipe left you can actually watch me score a touchdown and not goof around. I'm horrible at soccer if that's what you were thinking of"he giggled. "You said you wanted to see it." he raised his eyebrows playing around and taking another sip of wine. Refilling his glass a bit. "Would you like anymore?" her eyes were like a melting sunset he wanted to stay lost in. He felt himself slip for a second before waiting for her response.

He must have loved American Football. She had never tried to even follow the sport before, but she was beginning to think that maybe she should try and watch a game of it. Try to figure it out. The way he seemed to reminisce about it almost seemed to have an infectious level of joy. Though not everyone was like her, not everyone wanted to forget the past. In fact a lot of people were happy to have the past they did. Even with the suffering they’d endured. The man she was here with seemed to understand and embody that rather well.

Vira didn’t seem to know how to take a compliment as well as she should have. She was always difficult on herself, mostly because the life she had lived up to a certain point was all about serious, and difficult goals ahead. There was never a time when you were “good enough” it was always about climbing up the ladder and being better today than you were yesterday. So having someone recognize things such as her smile, and her intelligence was very heartwarming, but it was so strange and foreign to her. Then Andrew pointed something out, and Vira turned her head.

A smile crept on her face as she watched the proposal play out in front of her. The couple seemed to be happy, which was an amazing sight to see. Her mind was almost immediately clouded by a sense of pessimism. She was so happy for them, but she was scared at the same time. This world was going to hit those two hard. She could see it already. So many people found their happiness like this, but eventually time forces it to fade away. Be it from personal issues, haunting pasts or even just the fragility of the life we all take for granted. But by the time she had even begun to feel sad, her heart was uplifted again. It was the sad, scary things that made moments like that one matter. It made them so beautiful, and she was happy that she got to witness it. Andrew added that one day he wanted to be that kind of happy. She simply clapped for the couple in a quiet fashion, happy for the two in that moment.

”They’ll be happy for a long time.” She said in response to Andrew’s comment about wanting to be that happy. But she seemed to daze off for a moment, until the time came for her date to dip into his Italian speech once more. She couldn’t stop shaking her head with a smile as he spoke. One of the languages she never learned a lick of. She could catch certain things due to their French aspects, but it was a struggle. ”That is still so cool. I’ve never been able to learn Italian.” She said

Her date seemed to channel his inner “papa” for a moment and gave a small tid-bit on the food she might want to pair. She smiled at the way that he had phrased it. He missed his family, and she had no doubt that they would be proud of him at this moment. Especially because he was well-rounded in the culinary advice as well. She smiled and contemplated the nature of what she should pair with the cream sauce and pasta. By the time the waiter came around she had decided on a cream and cheese sauce with shrimp and angel hair pasta. There were tomatoes, basil and onions, but oddly enough onions didn’t seme to affect her the way garlic did.

Andrew’s sudden movements caused her eyes to jerk slightly as he removed his phone, she smiled as he brought out a small flip phone of some kind and then slid it across the table to her. She tilted her head and shifted off to the side slightly, to line her vision up. The school colors bright and vibrant white with a bright oxidized red to compliment it. The numbers 85 across the chest, thought he smile was for the camera, it had a story behind it. This was a particularly good day for these three. She couldn’t help but smile in response. She looked up to Andrew with lips curled to a smile. The way she was looking at him was the way that a woman looked at a small child that was just adorable.

”Ohh! Look at the baby face!” She teased him before swiping the phone, the screen projecting the next thing in his gallery, a touchdown for his team. It was interesting to watch the way he aggressively pushed through the other line and seemed to stumble, but not fall. He dove into the endzone and as the whistle went the noise of the stadium seemed to consume the phone. She smiled and nodded. She wasn’t exactly sure what she was looking for, but she was just happy to share a moment of his past and his life with him. ”I’m not sure what’s more impressive. You’re determination for getting through those big slabs of meat on the other team….or your dedication for still having the same phone.” She said, trying her own little bit of humor before realizing that he was offering her a refill on her wine. She looked to her glass, realizing that she had been slowly working at it. A top off wouldn’t hurt. But she wasn’t one to drink frequently. She looked back to her water and the incorrectly colored wedge before smiling and nodding to him, a sweet little mile on her face.
”Absolutely. This doesn’t happen often. Might as well enjoy, right?” She said, almost as if she felt the need to explain ehr logic to him. She knew she didn’t but she still did.
