“Oh my, does that make me a VIP? Hehe~” you chuckle light-heartedly. You listen to him describing his friend with somewhat of a smile, thinking that indeed, you should recognize this Rufus right away. Well, more thanks to the actual description than for the “he looks like a puppy” part.
“Don’t worry Sterdarling, I will make sure to avoid saying unnecessary things~ I just want to tell your friend to be more careful to avoid being in trouble. Even if my situation seems more dangerous, it actually isn’t because I have comprimising materials in my possession, and ways of spreading them widely in case anything happens to me~ I’m fine” you conclude.
“Also, if your friend is ‘handsome’, surely it wouldn’t hurt to have a look and enjoy the show I guess” you giggle.
“Sterdarling?” The petname elicits a laugh from the pale shaded man, as he looks at his watch. Damn. Break time was almost over, although the time was spent wisely. ”That’ll never get old and yes, consider yourself a VIP on this ship known as friendship… god what am I saying.”Wise question, indeed. A small chuckle and a hand wave dismiss this small moment of ridiculous metaphorical indulgence.
Anyways yes, this was exactly why he loved Scarlet so goddamn much; she was another human being that could appreciate the art of having a few tricks up the proverbial sleeves. Well, one that did and was tolerable enough to sit around for long periods of time. “If you’re sure, Scarlove.” God, that nickname may just get him killed but it certainly made up for Sterdarling. Lord only knows what would happen if she knew his first name, and the embarrassing nicknames to come with it. “I trust you can take care of yourself but don’t forget I worry, alright? And go enjoy the show as much as you would like. After all, it is his job.”
Maybe Scarlet could, with all her red-blooded money and all, help another fellow red-blood out. Then again, Scarlet really wasn’t so rich… and neither was Rufus, for sure. It was probably time to drop stereotypes, but old habits died hard.
Hard to forget how much a red’s fist hurts.
