When Gwen had posted about wanting to try some new Chinese places in Manhattan she really hadn’t expected that to lead to a date around town with Harry Osborn. Still, it had been a while since she’d been on a date of any kind, and Harry wasn’t bad company. So in the thirty minutes she had given herself, Gwen freshened up her makeup, made sure that her hair was still perfectly coiffed, and put on the red dress that Harry had requested.

Once she was ready, she went down to the lobby of her apartment building to wait for Harry and the chauffeured car he promised.

To be fair, he hadn't originally had a date in mind when suggesting places to Gwen. But when the opportunity arose he couldn't resist treating her to a date. After all, he needed a distraction from work and the company of a rather beautiful woman is the best distraction he could ask for.

The car arrives just as promised, with a bemused Bernard still shaking his head at Harry's antics. Harry makes a beeline into the lobby and greets Gwen with a cheerful, "Hey!"

"Doing better now." He grins and scratches his cheek, "You really can pull red off, huh? Anyway, I've got the rest of the day free so we can explore as much as you want. Sound good?"

"Well, you do look great. I figured red would look good on you." And it's a casual rebellion for him, he never did get to enjoy MJ's red dresses when he had his father to please.

"I don't think you have to worry about me getting sick of you, Gwen. Let's get this party rolling, heh?" And thus Gwen gets a back on the back while he holds the door open for her.

no worries, then. hakuna matata!

Harry fails to think of a witty response to that, and covers it up with a chuckle and a nudge into the car.

"There's two places over near Central Park that I mentioned, that's a good place to start." Buckling his seat belt doesn't seem as big of a deal to him - whether because of his strength or the fact that Harry needs danger shoved in his face to be even a little worried, the world may never know. "The city's crawling with Chinese places, so we should be able to go pretty much anywhere from there."

"Work is..." he tips his head back with an exaggerated sigh, "I think half the company's gone crazy since my father was around. It'll be another two or three years before we can be on the right track again, at this rate. Not to mention how all the higher-ups have to be replaced after the Goblin's rampage." Awkward pause. Wow, smooth, Mr. Osborn. "But I bet you don't care about that at all. How've you been, are you still modelling?"

"Oh, that's great." he smirks, "We could use a few scientists over at Oscorp, ever think about working in weapons production?" It's a joke, of course, he honestly want to drag any of his friends into the living hell that is his inheritance. "You've really got a future ahead of you, either way. Looks, personality and brains, it's amazing you're not waving guys off with both arms."

"That's probably a good choice." he smirks, "Weapons aren't for everyone."

The second thing makes him a bit more sheepish, "Between MJ, Spider-man and the tabloids I'm not exactly voted the most wanted bachelor in the city at the moment. Few too many public temper tantrums for that." Well, at least he admits it.

"You think so?" He smirks, "I'd rather have a girl with substance. Anyone with enough money can get that kind of girl, right? It'd be a waste. And... honestly I need someone to keep me sane while I'm working. The girls there for my money couldn't do that."

What he chooses not to admit is how much it would hurt to date a girl who's in it for the money, and prove that his father's expectations of him had been exactly right. At least Gwen would be a good match for him; someone as smart as him who understands how difficult his situation is.

"That's not a bad idea, actually. Someone on the same level as me, that I can really trust." Although this leaves the question hanging in the air of whether Gwen is that type of girl. The car pulling up to the first place of the day provides a good distraction. "Well, here we are. Does it suit your fancy so far?"

Harry joins her quickly, mentally noting the missed opportunity to open the door for her. Well, technically having Bernard open the door for her, which doesnt carry the same feeling anyway. After a moment of hesitation he offers his arm to link with hers, "Let's hope for the best, shall we?"

"Really? I don't trust myself with this." It's not too often he tries anywhere but the cafe he's a regular to, and Chinese food isn't particularly his thing. Not after how much his father would look down on him for the cheap meals.

They get seated quickly, and once he opens the menu Harry chuckles, "Ah, it's been so long since I had Chinese I can't remember what any of this stuff is. Guess you'll have to choose."

"Mm... sounds good to me." he chuckles, "You do seem pretty good at taking charge. I think I'm gonna enjoy this date." Gwen taking charge has the added bonus of letting him sit back and go with the flow. And he could seriously use that after all his work.
