For Scripps, Dated 12/31

Grace very distinctly remembers the events of New Years Eve one year ago.

Dressed up in clothes from another era, they all rang in the new year in a way that she can only describe as magical. And Grace's last moments of the previous year were spent with someone she didn't anticipate would be as near and dear to her heart now as he is.

This year, they've been plunged into a different place altogether, one that Grace has found equally as magical as the month has worn on. And tonight, it feels as if there is magic in the air all over again, as Grace pulls her scarf more snugly around her neck. She's waiting in Times Square, where she's supposed to be meeting Scripps tonight, but so far, she hasn't spotted him.

Perhaps she should have been a bit more specific as to which corner she'd be nearest to.

He's taken quite a bit of time getting himself prepared for all of this. Proper fashion isn't exactly Scripps' high point, but now he finds himself given a reason to be fancy. Eventually, he manages with a bowtie and a suit and a corner to find, a peacot keeping him warm and the wind pushing through his hair.

There's a lovely lack of people to search through and he's still got some time before midnight arrives, a fact he's grateful for. And then, he sees her and he's reminded of how grateful he is to have someone like her in his life. "Grace!" he calls, hurrying over with alacrity in his step.

He keeps a hand at the small of her back when she kisses him, entirely unwilling to let go. "No, not at all," he assures, especially since he's only just arrived. "You look lovely," Scripps praises, brushing a kiss to her neck. "I was trying to look suitable for you, it's why I took so long."

He brightens at the compliment and brushes a kiss to her lips because he can and because he wants to and right now, there's nothing he'd like to do more. "Will Mini be stealing you away from me at any point this evening?" he asks, wanting to clarify what his game plan shall be. "Or do I have you all to myself?"

Strange how something as simple as a set of words can take his breath away, but Scripps is left feeling as if his heart has been rendered to stop and deigned only to beat again at the sight of Grace and her smile. "Then why are we delaying?" he wonders. "Come on, we must escape before I find myself trapped in the drama of others."

"Anywhere but where there are dozens of eyes upon us," he says, taking hold of her hand within his and coaxing her onwards. "It's New York City. I'm sure we can find something romantic and private. Central Park, perhaps? Times Square overlooking it all?"

"A hotel?" he suggests, heart skipping a beat. There's so many parts of him nervous, but there's also a correlating excitement and he thinks that it's long past time that he's up for this -- that he goes for what he wants. It's not as if God is going to smite him for it.

"It's so very okay," he assures her quickly, given that he's been waiting for an appropriate chance and this seems as if the best night as any. It's significant, that's for sure. "I think I saw something rather lovely a block or two away. Might as well make the best of it for our memories' sake."

He reaches out, threading his fingers through her hand in order to draw her closer to his body, aware that his heart is beating like it's been trapped in a giant steel drum. "After all the advice I've heard and all the accounts, I want this to be just us," he says. "You and me and privacy and possibly a penthouse wouldn't hurt."

"Dakin. Guy. An interminable number of social media sources," he says, which do tend to go on and on. He'd rather experience it himself and that's that. "We might need to stop for protection. I didn't exactly come prepared. I didn't want to be presumptuous."

"Well, then, I'll take that in hand," he promises, sliding a hand around her waist to bring her along. "Come on, before we get stopped by some wayward New York ghost. We need to find you a hotel suitable of your status and beauty."

"Why not?" he agrees, given that money isn't an issue and neither is the pressing need for reservations. He's grinning as he picks up the pace, never letting go of her hand as they hurry. "Maybe we could even get some room service. Champagne and strawberries?" he suggests.

"I think we should take whatever we like if they're not truly people at all," Scripps insists, grinning impishly as he begins to walk backwards. "I hope you won't mind me saying, but I'm nervous as fuck right now."

"I'm nervous because I put it off so long for religion's sake," he admits, because it's not about the fear. It's about the sacrifice. "I think maybe I've hyped it up a bit in my head, even though I know I shouldn't have. Except, then I met you and...well, it's a bit hyped again because you're so very...you."
