Something just like this - Chapter 7

So, here he was, having no idea what ‘here’ exactly was, and feeling suddenly very small. At least coming right after work made sure he was dressed appropriately - a dark blue suit with a pale blue shirt - but neither did really hug his frame well, and he also wasn’t wearing a tie. For some reason, it seemed like the kind of place where a tie would be needed.

Prompto’s musings were interrupted as Noctis stepped out of the building. “Ah, there you are,” he said with a warm smile. Well, at least he wasn’t wearing a tie either. Though he did look positively stunning in his dark suit, and Prompto had to swallow hard again to stop himself for outright whimpering, because, seriously, what the hell?

Well, I guess it’s about time we learn about Noctis’ background, right?
(Though, I mean, technically they’ve known each other for like 3 days~ well, this thing has never been a slow burn anyway^^)

I hope you guys will like this chapter - there’s less smooching, but their relationship does grow. And there’s Aranea, yay!

Thanks to everyone who leaves comments/kudos/notes - I love you all!
Many thanks to my amazing beta @voxiferous!!!

I cannot possibly emphasize what a constant trial it is being friends with me.

“Ah, sorry, I’m not much of a dancer.” Prompto mumbled to his feet after he once again stepped on the prince of Lucis’ toes. 
“Could have fooled me,” Noctis smiled warmly, pulling Prompto closer, “Do they not have balls in Niflheim?” 
Prompto paused, his face falling slightly as he lowered his gaze to the floor “Well…ah, no. Not really.” 

Insomnia welcomes Niflheim into their kingdom will a ball, and although Noctis usually hates any kind of social event, surprisingly this one has become a little more interesting. Another scene I had in mind for my Niflheim prince Prompto AU. I’m planning on drawing a few more things because I’ve received so much encouragement, I hope y’all like angst, cause thats where this AU is headed.
