Declan wasn't so sure he really wanted to go to this big shindig of River's. It was University related. Some dinner/party. River didn't tell him much.
"Are they giving out awards, or something?" Declan was looking his suit over wondering if it were nice enough.
"I dunno." River shrugged ever so French as if it didn't really matter.
"And you really want me to go?" Declan looked at River as if he could tell him to stay home.
"You, think I want to go alone?" River winced with the laugh. "I wouldn't go alone. You have to go."
"Why?" Declan couldn't help but ask. He was getting the idea that it wasn't that River was secretive, but the fact he wasn't sure what was really going on.
"To protect me, of course." River looked at serious. Then he gave him a sly smirk. "You are a people person."
"No, I'm not." Declan shook his head, no. He didn't believe that. He went to hang his black suit next to River's black suit. Of course, his inside fest was made of a shiny gold fabric. Only, River could pull something like that off.
It would be weird meeting other professors at this function. Declan was certain River might be one of the younger professors. Although, River only claim to be a French teacher. Declan was beginning to think River might be a lot more humble than he even knew. Although, River could take a cheap suit and make it look amazing. Declan didn't feel that about himself. He thought of himself as one of those guys who could take an expensive suit and make it look cheap.
