christmas — aren’t you going to spend it with us?
if you want me to spend it with you guys…
when are you going to settle things with her?
…maybe Christmas. Probably.
A wild Kuro appears-
Kuro uses -Greet-. She’s not sure if it’s effective, but it’s been a while since she’s seen her old friend.
It’s effective. Somehow, Kuro always had that energy about her that was hard to frown at. It was something friends had, he supposed.
“Been a while, hasn’t it?”
don’t decide things on your own… are you sure about this?
I wouldn’t have said anything if I wasn’t.
This is probably the chance where Ryo has all the time in the world to say exactly what’s on her mind—to express her fears and worries, to face the conflicting emotions stopping her from thinking rationally… to convey the feelings she’s been bottling up for a very long time, with words and not some silly kiss. But instead, she chose not to. A stubborn streak taking over, her mortal flaw as she merely gave a small sigh, golden hues staring everywhere but his face. “No, it’s… nothing.”
It was not difficult to gauge when someone was lying, or even when someone had something on his or her mind. Ryo had been staring earlier and now she refused to look him in the eyes; when gold met lavender, they both seemed to flicker away just as quickly as they met. His time away had changed their dynamic, he could see, but there was something lingering between them— a pesky need for confirmation, for answers, perhaps even for touch. Despite it all, he couldn’t bring himself to push her further, instead remaining silent for a moment. She’d speak on her own time…and so would he.
“How have you been, then?”
yeah— are you two free sometime this week?
I mean— yeah I think so. you guys deserve a night out or something
