"Kiddo?"

"What do you want."

"Can I come in, please?"

"No. This is my room and you're staying out of it."

"Am I?"

"You are. The door's locked."

"We'll see."


"Kiddo-"

"Jesus Christ! How did you get in?!"

"I climbed through the window."

"What the fuck do you even want."

"I wanted to give you this."

"What makes you think I want anything from you?"

"It's a book. As an apology. I'm apologizing. I'm sorry about the way things happened the other day. You caught me off guard while I was planning ways to win you over."

"Win me..?"

"Can you please just look at the book?"

"... Okay."

"..."

"..."

"..."

"... 'Ten Thousand Reasons Why I Love You'?"

"Mhm."

"This looks to be just about the cheesiest book in the world."

"It gets worse if you open it."

"Which page?"

"Any of them."

"..."

"Told you."

"All they say is 'I love you' over and over and over."

"I know."

"... I'm going to kiss you now."

"I'm not going to complain."


"Do you think it's safe to go in yet?"

"No, they're probably halfway to having sex by now, I don't recommend it Maka."

"I don't hear anything though, Liz."

"Hm... Alright, I'll get the key, but you asked for it."

"..."

"..."

"..."

"Here we go, key in and- oh. Hm."

"They're... Asleep."

"It's cute. Is that a book in Kid's hands?"

"Yeah. Black Star got it for him."

"I'm not surprised. Kid loves books."

"That's what I said."

"Well, we should leave them to it, then."

"Mhm. Thank God, I was getting tired of all that sexual tension. They go through this process at least every two months. Break up, have sex, get back together."

"I know, it's awful. It works for them, though."

"That it does... Something's different this time, I think. They've never said 'I love you' before."
