Kate Bishop sat in her and her roommates apartment, said roommate, Billy, was out for the night on a date, so she was snuggled up comfortably on their soft purple couch wrapped in a bohemian style blanket, her icy blue eyes fixed on the TV before her, a tub of 'Ben and Jerries' ice-cream in one hand, a spoon in the other. As she watched the screen intently she slowly lifted the spoonful of ice-cream to her mouth.
CLICK! Went the latch and the door behind her flung open.
"Holy shhhhhi…Billy!" Kate gasped turning her head to see her black haired roommate slump through the door, misery on his pale face. Kate instinctively knew something was wrong.
"What's wrong?" she asked. Billy slowly slumped around the couch and plonked himself next to Kate who had moved her legs to make room, and he placed his head on her shoulder and stared blankly at the TV.
"Well my date was a complete disaster". He mumbled while Kate played with his hair, "I don't get it. Why is every date I go on with a total asshole that's only interested in one thing, and only pretends to have something in common with me? I mean… that's the third guy this month, not to mention the seven before them". Kate knew what he was talking about, having been on several dates with guys like that herself. Feeling sorry for her little bro, she decided to talk to him about it.
"So what was wrong with Humberto, I heard he was really cute?" she asked putting her ice-cream down on the coffee table and wrapping a sisterly arm around Billy. He raised his head and rested it on the back of the couch so he was gazing at the ceiling.
"He was he was really sweet and sooooo hot, but we didn't connect. I mean he liked dinosaurs and lizards which is just… you know not my thing, and he was just so fake, pretending to share my interest's when really he was just wondering when it'd be hump time" He ranted.
"Oh honey I'm sorry" Kate said sympathetically, hugging his arm nearest to her. But she knew exactly what'd cheer him up. She stood up and walked around the couch into the kitchen, Billy's honey brown eyes following her, she vanished into the shadows of the kitchen, her outline barely visible from the light from the TV, Billy herd the freezer door open and a cupboard door open and close and glass clink together. She emerged not long after and with a tub of ice-cream and a spoon which she handed to Billy, and two glasses she placed on the table, soon after she vanished once again into her bedroom, the light flicked on and lightly bounced of the silver patterns on her lilac walls, it was turned of about a minute later as Kate emerged with what looked like a box and what was clearly a bottle, she placed both on the table.
"Right then, no more moping around over some guy who thinks with his genitals instead of his head" she said as she turned the DVD player on, taking out the disc of 'Bridget Jones Diary' they watched the night before, and poured some vodka mixed with coke into the glasses, before asking…
"Which episode?" she asked referring to the F.R.I.E.N.D.S box set- seasons 1 to 10- she bought out earlier, but they both knew the answer.
"The one with the embryo's of course" Billy grinned, taking a swig of his drink before opening his tub of ice-cream, he pulled the blanket over his legs, leaving space for Kate next to him and patting the seat to insist she sit next to him.
After placing the disc in the tray she hopped up with energy (despite it now being 10:48pm) and sat next to Billy, who drew the remaining blanket over her legs as she grabbed her own ice-cream and glass, and snuggled next to each other, their feet sitting next to each other on the coffee table.
"Umm… what flavour is this?" Billy asked dipping his spoon gently into his ice-cream as though it might jump out at him if he scooped.
"Coconutterly fair, it's a new one, its nice" Kate said her eyes darting between her ice-cream and the screen as the F.R.I.E.N.D.S theme tune played.
"Mmmmm yeah itsh nishe" Billy proclaimed his mouth half full of ice-cream, he swallowed and asked, "So which one of the friends guys would you go out with if you had to?"
"Oh Joey definitely, he's so sweet and funny" She chuckled, taking a sip of vodka/coke, "What about you? Who would you go for?"
"Well I think I'd go with Chandler because he's hiiiiilarious and I'd have all the control in the relationship" he laughed.
"Oh my god, poor Chandler, you evil bitch" Kate joked a fake look of astonishment on her face, "what about if you had to go out with one of the girls?" she quizzed. Billy swallowed his ice-cream and replied.
"Rachel because she's gorgeous and I love Jennifer Aniston, I think she's very sexy but classy, but who would you choose?"
"Oh Phoebe without a doubt. She's sooooo funny and quirky and she'd do anything in bed" she smirked. Billy quickly covered his mouth to stop himself spraying his drink as he laughed at Kate's answer. Kate laughed as coke dribbled from between Billy's fingers and hugged him.
"See, why do you need guys when you've got me?" she jested.
Time passed as the two finished their drinks and ice-cream, and laughed rolling back in their seats, quoting lines from the episode.
"Viva las Gay-gas!" they cheered simultaneously before nearly collapsing fro lack of oxygen, their faces red from laughing so much.
"Oh god I ca- hahahahaha!" Billy couldn't talk from laughing so much. They forced themselves to calm down in order to quote the upcoming line.
"Actually it's Miss Chanandler Bong" and they both burst into laughter again, which continued until the episode ended.
Once they calmed down and put the bottle and empty tubs in the bin, they brushed their teeth and left for their rooms, Billy ran up to Kate and hugged her.
"Thanks Kate, I really needed tonight" he said gently
"Awww honey that's okay, I love our F.R.I.E.N.D.S nights" she said softly in his ear, holding him tighter as they swayed.
"I… I just *sigh* I'm so crappy when it comes to relationships you know? I'm so desperate for a decent boyfriend".
Kate separated their hug and held him in place looking in the eyes as she smiled.
"Okay I'll tell you what, tomorrows a Saturday, after we've had lunch with the others how's about we go clubbing and score with some really hot guys, oh no wait your waiting to loose your virginity to the right guy like an over-sensitive teenage girl" she joked making Billy chuckle slightly.
"Just cause you're a slut" he retaliated sticking his tongue out playfully, "But yeah thanks Kate that'd be great".
"S'ok" and the two headed for their comfy beds.
"Night virgin" Kate mocked.
"Night slut" and with that the two closed their bedroom doors, smiles on their faces.
Hope you all enjoyed the main purpose of this chapter was to establish the closeness between Billy and Kate and introduce them as the main characters.I know the drinking age in the USA is 21 but to overcome that little hurdle lets say its 18 in this alternate universe.
I claim no ownership to F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Ben and Jerries or Bridget Jones Diary.
Next up we meet one of my favourite characters in Marvel and have more humorous fun. R&R please, all compliments and criticism welcome, tell me how I did for my first published fic and if anything was bad, thanks guys, keep an eye open for the next chapter.
