By the Bunnies Will Kill Us All
A/N: Yeah it has been a while... to put it bluntly that is because I am a lazy bastard who only writes when it suits me. This is an unfortunate personality trait.
Anyway I wrote this some months ago and in my haphazard filing system found it and decided to finish it off all gooey and romantic-like and post it. Its a completely self-indulgent piece of writing so feel free to hate it blindly (or not blindly, whatever is your angst).
But the good people here at my house like reviews as well as disgust and rage. Food for thought.
Um... we're probably not going to be mates once school ends, y'know... but I wanted to ask you something.
I was wondering... Well... I'm pretty sure.
He takes a sip of his coffee.
You had the hots for me in 5th, right?
I- I- um...
I mean, it was obvious. But I was wondering if you were still that way inclined.
Asa calmed himself.
We're in 7th now, Ash.
Thats not an answer.
I don't see how the question is important.
Ash is gleeful.
Asa is not.
Don't start this up again. Not for the sake of your ego!
Ego? You think thats why, eh? You don't think I'd ask because I was emotionally invested with the possible affirmative response?
You're being silly. Enough of this!
She's defiant. He supposed it natural. Then she kept on talking.
I am not going to be quiet just cause you're a big bad prefect and menace of the night!
...menace of the night?
He isnt sure wether to be flattered or not. So he speaks.
So... um... why did you ask then?
She blushes, but holds his gaze.
I asked cause even though we probably won't be friends after school's over... we could always aim high and hope for the best.
He looks at his feet. Intently.
She smiled. Gave him that intent, flirtatious look that he'd seen her use on guys a thousand times.
Well... high as you want.
She was teasing him. But in that good, just to keep him guessing way.
His voice cracked a little when he spoke next.
I aim pretty high, though.
There was mirth in her eyes.
Can you keep up with the high standards? I know your previous boyfriends have not been all that impressive.
You reckon so?
I know so. Total wastes of time, the lot of them.
Pfft. Yeah. But... some hot ones.
I'm not having that conversation with you. Change the subject please.
Oh come on... you must admit, Jimmy Mills was attractive.
He pinched the bridge of his nose.
Shut up, please.
That is not very polite.
You're right. He agrees. Let me make amends.
So he kisses her. He's been picturing the moment for years. Its better than anything his mind could have fabricated. She likes it too.
Mmm... you do aim high.
Less talking, more snogging.
Oh you're so romantic...
Conversations can change lives. Get off your computer and go have one.
Kidding, I love you guys.
