3.7 A date or not?

His whole body froze waiting for her answer.  Blair kept thinking, 'I did ask her the right way, didn't I? What is taking so long? I just love her so much what will I do if she turns me down?'
"Blair did you hear me?" as she looked at him. Suddenly Blair snapped out of his thoughts and said, "What did you say?" terrified that she might turn him down.

"Blair you can get up. I said my answer is yes. I will marry you."

Blair put the ring on her finger and thought, ' I'm so glad she said yes and I will never tell her how scared I was the last few minutes.'

"I love you." hugging her tightly afraid to let go.

Dawn made her way to club to see what they wanted her to do. William was waiting for her and showed her around the empty, undecorated club. "What kind of things do you want?"
"We want a lounge up stairs with a coffee bar, relaxing and a general relaxation area. In the basement will be where the music and bar will be. Toilets need to be on every level. You come highly recommended so the decorating part is in your hands."
"I'll put some designs together and get back to you in a few days."
"Great. See you in a few days. Sorry, will you be able to show the designs to my Dad? It's just he is very fussy...Here is his address. Let's say 11am on Friday!"
"That will be fine but your Dad said I would only deal with you or Blair."
"I know but we have interviews to do for the club and Dad is the only one available."

Mathew had taken to the drums and had finally found a new outlet for his frustrations. The drinking was getting less and less. 

Snowie and Mathew over the last few weeks spent more time together and Mathew had even asked Snowie to the prom. They posed together for their prom picture. 

When the prom had finished they finished the evening by sharing their first kiss.
Although Spencer approved of Mathew's relationship he didn't want his son to end up like him. As he watched their relationship blossom, he remembered at seventeen he had let his emotions run away with him and by the time he was eighteen he was already a Dad. Spencer wanted Mathew to have the things he'd never had a career, a steady income and then a family.

The last thing Spencer needed was to make a phone call saying your daughter's pregnant. It would not go down well with Snowie's family. In 6 months Mathew would finally be leaving school. Mathew didn't know this but he was being sent away to college.
Blake opened the door to let Dawn in and told her Dad was in the kitchen. 

When Estevan turned around there were those striking eyes again just staring at him.
"Hello Dawn. What brings you here?"

Trying to focus while looking at his bare chest. She finally said,  "William said you wanted to see the designs for the club." Estevan could not believe again his son had made excuses and Blake didn't say there was someone at the door.

"Do you want to make you way to the living room and I will take a look." Dawn sat down and noticed the picture above the fire place. "A beautiful picture!"
"That was my wife, Holly. Shall we get to work?" Dawn realised he was not comfortable talking about her and sensed he was angry that she was there. "Look I'll go if you want?" feeling that Estevan wanted to be left alone.
"Don't you want to show the designs?"
"I do but I get the impress I have done something and you're angry with me."
He looked at her and said, "I need fresh air. Would you come with me and I will explain."

Dawn was taken aback by his request but agreed. As they strolled around the park there was a long silence then Estevan broke the ice. "Sorry about just now when I snapped at you. I find it difficult to talk about my wife at times."
"You must have loved her very much?" wishing she could take back what she had just said.
"I still do love her but my boys are right I need to move on. The truth is Dawn, I haven't dated since my wife died and when you walked in the club...well let's just say I wasn't expecting you. I am sorry for the way I acted when we first met."
Dawn was shocked at his apology but accepted it with a smile, "its ok. Running a business can be stressful." Realising what he'd also said Dawn added, "You mean that you like me, don't you?" Suddenly feeling very vulnerable. The expression on his face said it all and then Estevan replied, "Why is that wrong?"

Dawn panicked her career was her life and lover's came and went but Dawn knew if a vampire loved it was for life. "Look I think we should kept our relationship professional."
"You look horrified, have I offended you?"
"No. I'm flattered but I don't date. My career means everything to me and..." he got closer to Dawn and said, "and nothing. I just want a date with a beautiful woman. Would you accompany me to the opening of the new club when it's finished?
Dawn thought about his offer and asked, "If I say no; do you still want me to design the club?"
"Dawn, I never go back on a business deal."

"Estevan, thank you for you offer but I have to say no." He was shocked and hurt that she turned him down but he loved that fire in her. He loved that she could say no to him.
"I understand. However I've changed my mind, all club designs must now come through me." Estevan couldn't believe what he was doing. He was captivated by her and suddenly wanted to see her more and hoped after spending more time together working on the club, she would change her mind about the date. 


  1. AWWW! Estie has a girlfriend :P love how the story is developing :)

    1. HappyMint,

      Will Estevan get his wish and have girlfriend I hope so:)

  2. Why would Blair be afraid to tell Teddy how worried he was? He really needs to work on his vulnerability issues, and the fact that he's worried about showing any. Still YAY! They're finally engaged!

    I'm so glad Estevan's willing to date again! I just love how William, Blair, and Blake all set him up. Smart boys. I also love how Dawn turned him down. That will just make him want her more!

    Loved it! Looking forward to more!

    1. Mypalsim1,

      Blair hates showing his vulnerability but they are now engaged :)

      Estevan is willing to date again with the right person. Dawn is a strong personality so if he dates she will be right for him :)

  3. ~ Poor Blair,at least everything turned out right & there will be a Teddy Blair!
    ~ Snowie & Matt,they look good together,but I do hope that Matt does not follow in his fathers footsteps!(I am glad he is drinking less!)
    ~ Esteven,may be thawing,or even considering,a relationship,maybe it is all the children leaving the nest!
    ~ Intrigued to see how this turns out!
    ~ Loved it! (",)

    1. Karima,

      Yes the Teddy Blair is here to stay :) Snowie and Matt do look a good couple but as we now teenagers have their ups and downs.

      Estevan thawing lol when it comes to the woman in his life he is a softy :)

  4. Blair was funny, not hearing anything. Too much in his mind.
    Estevan is taking an odd step away from his norm. I bet his stating that he had to move on with his life really scared her, based on her reaction and thoughts. He doesn't think too much before acting it seems, when it comes to relationships. Bad boy. heh

    1. Zhippidy,

      Blair was just worried Teddy would say no lol. Estevan is different when it comes to woman he likes. When he likes what he sees he just acts on it but yes there still is the bad boy in him :)

  5. Yay, she said yes. Congrats to them. I can't wait for the wedding. Dawn and Estevan are off to an interesting start.

    1. Val,

      I'm glad she said yes. Poor Blair was in a state until see said yes.

      Dawn and Estevan are going to be interesting I hope :)

  6. I'm so happy she said yes! I can't wait for the wedding. I'm in love with your story. ☻

    1. Poisonivy,

      I'm glad you like my story :) I don't know what I would have done if Teddy had said no lol.

  7. So happy that Teddy said yes! A wedding soon!

    Snowie and Matthew are so cute together. I can understand his father's concerns, but I hope that he doesn't interfere too much in their relationship.

    Dawn has captivated Estevan. I voted for no new romance for him, but I'm glad I lost the vote! She is so interesting!

  8. Yay for Blair and Teddy! So nice to see Estevan opening up. I wonder how Matthew will react to being sent to college. O_O
