lara-knox: I won't make you drink or take anything, but I advise bringing your own drink because they always spike the punch. I think everyone takes a turn in spiking it, actually. All you have to do is dance with me a few times, make out in a dark corner and then entertain the fact I can't defy gravity on the way home. Oh, and I want you to walk me to my home because you're not getting any relationship sex any time soon!
/He sighs and pinches the bridge of his nose/
I suppose I can survive that.
And the prospect of sex never even crossed my mind!
lara-knox: /She huffs, still frowning at him and arms crossed/ You don't do yourself any favours saying the things you did. /A moment of contemplation, and.../ If. IF you come to a party with me, I'll consider forgiving you. It's that, or you grovel for a fair while for insinuating I just laid around with anyone available!
/He grimaces. Neither option sounds very pleasant/
Do I have to do anything while at the party?
And I didn’t insinuate you just laid around for anyone! I insinuated that you might have found someone more suited for you!
lara-knox: Well I waited, and you just threw it back in my face. How am I supposed to feel? Calling me perfect doesn't make it any better either, find a new tactic. You're meant to be the smartest triplet aren't you? /At least, she thought he was though she'd never stopped to think about it really/ If you think I can do better then obviously you don't want me back that much.
That’s just it, Lara. I want you back. More than anything, I want to be able to hold you and kiss you and just be with you. I have been nothing but a dour and brooding mope since you’ve been gone. But it has crossed my mind more than once that I am not the right fit for you, and you would find someone that you think fits better.
You mistake my own self-doubts for a desire to no longer be with you. And that’s not true at all.
/He looks down at his feet/ Why can I never say the right thing around you…
lara-knox: /Red handprint? Yes, firmly attached to Alexanders cheek. Teary-eyed/ Maybe I should have just asked for a diciplinary rather then being sent back here! You've obviously become a total dick, I'm glad we're not together even if it was only because I moved away!
/He holds a hand to the stinging red mark on his cheek, staring incredulously at Lara/ That’s insane, Lara, I’ve wanted to see you since the day you left! Excuse me for being scared that you’d see I wasn’t good enough for how perfect you are and you would decide to take advantage of this and stop wasting your time, waiting for me.
/He blushes and looks away, his eyebrows furrowing in upset/ and if… if you’re glad we’re not together… then I guess you saw you could do better.
lara-knox: Like baby? Sexy? /Startled by the sudden embrace though she snuggles into him contently enough/ Mmm... I missed that. Isn't it weird you forget how much you miss someone until you meet up with them again? /Kissing his cheek gently, then grinning/ My bed was SO~ lonely~
I don’t know, I don’t care. Call me cute for all I care. I just want to hear your voice. I don’t want you to leave me again.
/He looks at her with a raised eyebrow/ Let’s hope it stayed lonely the entire time you were gone.
