So…heh heh this is awkward. Let me just give a big, huge I'M SORRY to everyone that actually sticks around to read my writing. I'm neglectful-
Val: THAT'S for sure
And I'm sorry. I wish I had a reason for not working on my writing but I don't except that I'm lazy and boring. So…here's a plate of cookies to everyone that I love oh so much for reading my writing and I hope this lil' chapter makes up for my foolishness. Bye!
Royally Insane Chapter 3
"God I hate blonds." Yakko crossed his arms as he watched Keenan laughing and talking with Val. Wakko snorted. "Since when? Um…Hello Nurse, Minerva, every other blond girl we've ever met? Those ring a bell?"
Yakko shot his little brother a mean look. "I mean boy blonds. They're so ugly. Back me up here Dot."
Unfortunately for the eldest Warner, his darling and loyal baby sis was floating in a dream-like state some 3 miles up, her eyes in the shape of hearts due to a certain blond dream boat.
Yakko sighed, shrugging his shoulders. "You know what? I don't care. Val's my girlfriend, she loves me not some random guy that decides to crash her birthday party." Wakko nodded then paused.
"But to be fair, Keenan knew her longer than you."
Yakko paused for a minute with a sort of frown then shrugged again. "No biggie. I trust Val and besides, I'm not the jealous type." Yakko watched a group of pretty dancers in sparkly costumes walk by.
"I'll be back….sometime." Yakko wiggled his brow then toon-zoomed off to chat with the lovely girls. Wakko paused, not sure where to go from there. Then he just shrugged and ate the first thing that came into his reach, which just happened to be some fat lady's head piece.
The woman screeched and covered her head. "You ate my beret!"
Wakko belched. "I love French food. But it needs more salt." He then grinned and gave the very nice lady a big kiss before wandering off to look for some pie.
The rest of the night went well. Things got exciting once the boys from the birthday cake fiasco returned from the hospital, freshly bandages and paid, to sing Val a happy birthday song. She grinned wide when one of them pulled her up on the tiny makeshift stage outside to dance with her. The only downside was the boy had a cast on his left leg so it made the dancing more of an awkward hobble.
Once everyone began to leave, Yakko decided he might as well leave the dancers alone and go see his girl for a while. After pocketing a few lovely ladies' numbers(for emergency uses) he wandered around the few straggling birthday guests who either lived at the castle, or were too pathetic to go home to their lonely lives. Yakko saw Mr. Mousy having a light hearted discussion with the chef.
"And so I say to the man, that's not my wife, that's-"
"Exsqueeze me, I hate to ruin a good pun but I was looking for Val." Yakko poked Mr. Mousy who immediately stopped his 'funny' joke and pointed Yakko in the direction of the woods.
Yakko walked away and Mr. Mousy turned back to the chef who was sleeping like a baby. "Aw."
Yakko heard laughing before he saw them. Walking around a cluster of trees, Yakko spotted Val sitting with Wakko and Dot on a picnic blanket underneath a string of firefly jars. He grinned happily seeing all his favorite people together like that. He strolled over.
"It does me ol' heart good to see me family and friends all so happy and free." Yakko pulled out a faux Scottish accent to go with his easy-going mood.
Val grinned widely. "Oh look it be de eldest of de Warner children. Come taketh a seat yonder dearest friend."
Yakko laughed and flopped down on the blanket. "My accent's better. No one can do a pilgrim accent like me." Val gave him a challenging look.
Wakko and Dot raised their hands. "It's true. He saw Witness twice." Val gaped at them in fake hurt. "And here I thought we were friends."
Yakko laughed and nudged her. "Don't be mad dearest at least you still have your hair color."
She blinked. "What good would that do?"
Wakko smirked. "If we ever need to cook marshmallows, we can always roast them over your hair." As if on cue, the Warners all pulled out marshmallows and stuck them over Val's hair on roasting sticks. She laughed, still in a good mood and stole a marshmallow.
She stuck it in her mouth and chewed. "Well excuse me for being a ginger."
Yakko went to stroke her hair and yelped, shaking his hand like he had just burned it.
Val rolled her eyes. "Ha ha. I forgot how to laugh."
Wakko tilted his head. "If you forgot then why' d you just say ha ha? Silly Val!" He waved his hand and Dot coughed. "Dumber than advertised."
Yakko shook his head. "Actually Dot, I'd say Wakko is advertised just right for his level of dumb."
Wakko beamed. "Thank you." He then ate his marshmallow, stick and all.
Yakko yawned, stretching his arms inconspicuously before resting one around Val. She smirked. "Smooth. Really smooooth." Yakko grinned wider and nuzzled her nose. "Thank you."
She yawned and rested against his chest. "This would be the moment where I smile and tell you all how you made my day oh so special and perfect and that I love you guys oh so much and zzzzzzzzzzzzzz…" She flopped into Yakko's lap fast asleep and he held her up slightly in shock before they all started laughing.
Dot covered her mouth. "I can't believe she just talked herself to sleep."
Wakko had to shove a handful of dirt into his mouth to keep from laughing until he cried. Yakko's eyes were tearing as he fought to be quiet. "I'm never…gonna let her…live that…DOWN!" He rested Val on the ground before sprinting off. In the distance the sounds of hysterical laughter could be heard. Wakko and Dot looked at each other and, eventually, the laughing died down. Yakko came back in, holding his side with a big grin on his face. "Okay I'm done. And it's late. I say we turn in."
Wakko opened his mouth and Dot quickly covered it. "No."
She released her hand from his mouth and Wakko grinned. "Turn into what?" Dot face-palmed herself and turned away. Yakko grinned. "I don't know…maybe a lemur, or a tiger. Or maybe a T-Rex."
Wakko quickly turned into all of those things, stopping on the T-Rex as he looked down at his sibs. "I like this one best."
Yakko laughed. "I do too. Come on dino we all need our sleep." Wakko turned back into his cute little Warner self and waited for Yakko to get Val before they headed back to the castle.
Not wanting to wake her, Yakko decided to be all romantic and heroic and carry her the 2 miles back to their rooms, bridal-style. There was one thing those romantic fairy tales and chic flicks didn't mention however and that was the back pain that came with it. Twice, Yakko almost dropped her and once he actually hit her head against a tree trying to avoid a hole in the ground.
Dot shook her head at him. "Wow aren't you a great boyfriend? No wonder you're so worried that Val likes Keenan."
Yakko instantly stopped in his tracks, shifting Val slightly to try and spare his muscles. "I'm not worried about that guy. Who is he again? Some party crasher. Please." Yakko started walking again, leaving Dot behind as she crossed her arms. "Well that party crasher is coming back over tomorrow."
Yakko instantly stopped dead. "Say what?"
Wakko nodded. "Before you came Keenan was with us and Val invited him over for a tour of the castle tomorrow morning while we're in class."
Dot sighed. "He told me he'd wait until I was out of class to tour the garden with me. He's so dreamy." Yakko blinked, feeling his insides flare up. I'm not jealous. As if I care if some guy is around with Val…alone. He shook his head to try and rid the thought. "You know what? Whatever. Maybe I just need to get to know him better. I bet he's pretty cool. If Val likes him, then I'm gonna like him." And stick as close as possible to the guy until he cries and run home to Mommy.
Dot seemed appeased and she grinned. "Great! I knew you'd like him if you gave him a chance!" She skipped ahead and Wakko nudged his older brother. "You're gonna torment him aren't you?"
"Oh most definitely."
After they got back the Warners said their goodnights and Yakko carried Val to her room, not believing he had managed to carry her all that way without risking any serious damage. He dropped her on the bed as carefully as possible considering his arms felt like jelly that was left in the sun too long. Despite his attempts, Val woke up anyways. She blinked the sleep from her eyes and stared up at him in the dark, vaguely confused.
Yakko just shook his head, his arms hanging from his sides like well-cooked noodles. "You choose now to wake up? I deserve a kiss for that!"
Val shook her head. "You carried me home? Why?"
Yakko frowned. "Because I wanted to be romantic okay?" For some reason Val found this funny and she sat there giggling as Yakko grew more annoyed each second. He turned to leave.
"Hold on!" Val stood up, still giggling slightly. "I think my prince charming has at least earned himself a kiss for being so heroic and loving with his fair maiden."
Yakko grinned hopefully, his tail beginning to wag. "Yes I have."
Val wrapped her arms around his waist and pulled him into a long, tender kiss. When they broke apart, Val stroked the fur on the back of his neck and whispered in his ear. "Thank you."
Needless to say, Yakko left on a happy note and he was in such a good mood he was able to keep the evil thought of Keenan's visit from his mind as he fell asleep that night.
