it's not that there's nothing to do, it's that all of those things are boring

Bella rolls over onto her back. She's been doing leg lifts. Now her legs hurt. She's going to lie there for a while, and then she's going to drive home, and then she's going to write about a paragraph of Government essay before expiring from boredom. Jessica is sick. Angela is babysitting. They're still doing stuff she's covered in Bio and books she's read in English; it would take better teachers than she has to make Spanish and Trig interesting. A trip to Port Angeles to do something is the work of an entire day, not a school afternoon. She really needs to save up and buy more books. Or take up - quilting, or something.

Sigh.

"You look bored to fucking tears," observes Alice.
edgeofyourseat: Smiling, conspiratorial or challenging. (⑷ wanna try?)

He snickers.

"So what's up?"
edgeofyourseat: Smiling, affectionate or amused. (⑶ your wish is my command)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-09-14 12:24 am (UTC)(link)
"I'll give you that," he concedes. "Whatcha gonna do about it?"
edgeofyourseat: Grinning, friendly. (⑵ extraordinarily nice)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-09-14 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
"Well, I was gonna start thinking up suggestions, but I guess you're covered."
edgeofyourseat: Thoughtful. Possibly shirtless. (⑽ I kinda like it)

"Um... you could take a tour of my stupidly huge house, that'd probably burn a few hours," he says. "I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you're not a fan of climbing trees... pun not intended but totally hilarious and I don't regret it for a second."
edgeofyourseat: Confused or hurt. (⑿ never been born at all)

"...O...kaaay," says Alice, clearly lost.
edgeofyourseat: Hand to back of head, uncertain. (⑾ whatcha doin' tonight)

His mouth drops open in shock.

He blinks several times.

"Holy shit," he says in stunned tones, "I think you might actually be the perfect woman. Marry me."
edgeofyourseat: Grinning, friendly. (⑵ extraordinarily nice)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-09-14 12:41 am (UTC)(link)
He laughs.

"It's cool," he says, "I just haven't gone from zero to crush that fast since the first time I heard Freddie Mercury's voice. So, wanna come over?"
edgeofyourseat: Explaining or agreeing. (⑼ gotta be cool)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-09-14 12:45 am (UTC)(link)
"Dad will," he says, "I guarantee you. Probably Mom and Hilary, too."
edgeofyourseat: Hand to back of head, uncertain. (⑾ whatcha doin' tonight)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-09-14 12:54 am (UTC)(link)
"Not hugely," he says. "You might end up driving me or following me there, depending if Theo's on his way yet. Hang on, I'll check."

He pulls a phone out of his pocket and dials.

"Hi, Mom! I'm fine!" is how he opens the conversation.

Shortly afterward, "No, I swear. Cross my heart." A slight pause. "Uh-huh. Listen, is Theo out the door yet?" Another, longer pause. "Yeah, no, you got it. I've got a friend coming over who has a car, so—" He cuts himself off, cocks his head, and glances at Bella. "Mind if I tell my mom your name?"
edgeofyourseat: Sarcastic or disbelieving. (⑺ back into your place)

[personal profile] edgeofyourseat 2012-09-14 01:00 am (UTC)(link)
"It's Bella," he says.

Another pause.

"Mother, I swear before God she is not my girlfriend," he says, half-laughing. "Trust me on this. No. Don't even—no. Okay?" A beat. "Okay. Good. Thank you. See you in a bit." ...He rolls his eyes. "Yes, I will call you if I forget the directions to my own house. Goodbye, Mother."

After one last pause presumably containing a corresponding farewell, he hangs up.

"Yep," he says. "That okay? We could also walk, but that might take a while, and y'know. Your car."
edgeofyourseat: Grinning, friendly. (⑵ extraordinarily nice)

"That you were my fiancee," cheerfully.
