Weiss hadn't planned on leaving her room all night but the gnawing hunger in the pit of her stomach was getting harder and harder to ignore so she was forced to reluctantly leave her room. As she walked down the hall she caught a glimpse of herself in a mirror and hated what she saw. Her eyes were red from crying, her hair was a mess, and she was wearing a pair of mismatched sweats.
'Thank god that only person who's going to see me like this is Blake.' Weiss thought as she entered into the main living area only to find out just how wrong she was. Weiss paused in the entryway that led into the kitchen like a deer caught in a set of headlights. There, leaning against the counter, was Yang Xiao Long. She watched as Yang continued to talk with Blake both seemingly unaware of Weiss's arrival. She took a step backward only for her foot to collide with the trash can and she let out a muffled curse.
"Hey there, Schnee." Weiss could practically hear the smirk in her voice and, when she looked up, she wasn't surprised to see her smirking at her.
Weiss stopped messaging her foot and glared up at her roommate, "What's she doing here?"
Blake opened her mouth to answer only for Yang to jump in cutting her off before she could even speak, "I invited myself over. Sorry, Princess." Weiss huffed as she pushed her way into the kitchen and toward the refrigerator. She opened the door and after rummaging through it for a short while retrieved a tub of yogurt and a spoon before heading back the way she'd come. "Hey Schnee," Weiss paused and glanced over her shoulder at the blonde who pulled something out of her jacket pocket and walked over handing it to her, "For you." Weiss looked at the envelope Yang held out with unhidden suspicion.
"What? Did you go through my mail or something?" Yang laughed at this which only agitated Weiss further.
"Nope. I'm just delivering this for Ruby." Yang shoved the envelope at Weiss a little more forceful than necessary, "Read it when you get the chance." Reluctantly Weiss took the envelope and nodded at Yang. 'Ruby, that's...' Weiss's face heated up as she quickly turned to leave.
"Weiss, Wait..." Blake's words stopped Weiss just before she had exited the kitchen, "We were gonna do a movie night. Do you wanna join?" Weiss contemplated joining them but the idea of watching some cheesy romance movie while they made out on the couch wasn't very appealing.
"I'd rather not," Weiss said and turned to exit the kitchen.
"Well, if you change your mind feel free to join us," Blake called as Weiss disappeared down the hall, heading back toward her room.
Once her door was securely closed Weiss collapsed onto her bed and opened the tub of yogurt, spooning the strawberry-banana dairy creation into her mouth while trying to ignore the letter that she had received. She had eaten about half of the tub when she finally decided that she needed to see what was written whether it ended up being bad or good. Setting the yogurt on her nightstand and gingerly opened the letter. She pulled it out and was incredibly thankful that it was bearly half a page long. It was written in nearly illegible chicken scratch that Weiss only found herself able to read because one of her professors had similar handwriting.
Hi Weiss. Ruby here.
I'm so sorry about the other night. I didn't know you were still in the closet. If had known I wouldn't have hit on you. I know you don't want people to know(Blame Yang) so I won't tell anyone. Promise. BUT, if you wanna hang out like as friends, that'd be cool. If not I understand. Just write your response below and give this back to Yang. ;p
Weiss folded up the letter up, setting it to the side and picking the yogurt and tried to focus on shoving it into her mouth trying to ignore the letter. It taunted her from the corner of her eye as she finished the carton of yogurt. She could just ignore it. She didn't have to respond. Yang had just asked her to read it and she had done so. Weiss slammed the now empty carton down on her nightstand a little too forcefully as she let out an aggravated sigh. She couldn't just not respond to Ruby when she had gone out of her way like this. It went against the years of etiquette and manner lessons that had been drilled into her head. It just wasn't proper.
She angerly snatched the letter and jumped off the bed stalking over to her desk. If she was going to do this she was going to do this the right way. The Schnee way.
Sitting down she fished out a clean sheet of paper and began searching for a pen. Eventually, she found one and turned her attention to the letter she had gotten. It would be best if she matched the tone of the letter she had received. 'Hi Ruby. Weiss Here.' She wrote only to quickly scratch it out and try again. She couldn't be too casual. She took a deep breath and began again.
I am thankful for your letter. Knowing that you won't tell anyone is a weight off my shoulders and as for your offer of friendship I'm not sure if I'm comfortable hanging out in person just yet but I'd be open to friendship none the less.
- Weiss Schnee'
Weiss looked over her words once more before folding it up and slipping it into an envelope, taping it closed. Taking a deep breath she picked up the envelope and pushed herself to her feet making her way back into the living room where Yang and Blake were watching some cheesy horror movie. In a lull in the screams and music, Weiss cleared her throat causing both women to look up at her.
"Do you need something Weiss?" Blake asked, quirking an eyebrow at her and Weiss held out the envelope.
"For Ruby." Weiss pressed her lips together as Yang leaned over taking the envelope from Weiss.
"I'll make sure she gets this."
"Thank you." Weiss nodded before heading back to her room. She wasn't sure what she was feeling exactly. It wasn't exactly bad or good and she decided it didn't matter.
