In Love Again
Chapter 3: In Denial Again
Virginia opened her eyes slowly before sitting up then yawning and stretching. She then laid back down and closed her eyes. A brief moment later, her eyes sprung open as she pulled the blanket over her screaming, "KYAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!"
"It's too early for your shit..." Jet Enduro said as he too woke up to what he thought would turn out to be a normal day, but in which, was not turning out normal. "WHAT THE F-"
"What's all the noise?" Gallows asked as he too, woke up to a normal day.
"What happened?" Clive asked adding to the circumstance.
Now what they saw was truly the worst-case scenario.
Jet and Virginia had slept in the same bed.
"Uhh...Did I miss something?" Gallows asked with a grin on his face.
In comparison to Gallows, Clive didn't know how to respond. "I do not mind that something like this happened, but next time; try to get a house when you're all alone." He instructed at them disgustedly.
Jet and Virginia looked at each other and yelled, "AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
And with that final act of fear, the jumped out of the bed in unison, only to reveal that they were still wearing clothes.
Both Clive and Gallows's sweat-dropped.
Gallows decided to say something to the two of them before they got out of hand. "Your clothes are still on."
"My body has been violated!!!!!!" Virginia exclaimed nonetheless.
"MY CHASTITY!!!!!!" Jet yelled following up.
"What?" They asked in unison.
"He meant to say, that you are still wearing your clothes." Clive explained.
Virginia and Jet looked down to see that their teammates were in fact, correct. Their faces turned simultaneously, beet red.
"Well what the hell was I doing in bed with her!?" Jet demanded crossing his arms.
"Ya got me." Gallows snickered. "Your guess is as good as mine."
"Well waking up to you isn't exactly heaven!!" Virginia spat at him, embarrassed herself.
"Whatever!! I'm outta here!!" Jet yelled as he stomped out of the house with Gallows following. His cheeks seemed to be flushed with a rosy color.
Virginia also left the room to make breakfast for herself, Gallows, and Clive. She doesn't, or didn't care about Jet.
"I can't believe I actually woke up with him beside
me!!" Virginia exclaimed while chopping a carrot.
"Me neither." Clive responded. "What about that book?"
"I can't believe I woke up with her beside me!!"
Jet said as he pulled out his Airget-lamh and prepared to begin a battle
against some monsters.
"I can. Remember that book?" Gallows asked him.
"What about it?" Virginia asked Clive still
chopping another carrot.
"What happened after you read it?"
"You mean I wasn't having a nightmare?" Jet
asked Gallows while shooting the enemy.
"Nope. Something must've happened after we fainted."
"I-I don't remember. I only remember walking up with
Jet beside me." Virginia explained.
"What the hell do I care? Something obviously
happened with her and that book. It's not like it's my fault." Jet said as
he put away his Airget-lamh seeing as how he defeated the opposing monsters.
"What the heck do I care anyway? It's his entire
fault. It's not like it's my fault." Virginia exclaimed moving onto
"It's not like anything happened. If something happened,
it-it would be different. It would still be her fault . . . just
different." Jet explained walking around.
"It sounds to me like you're depressed that nothing happened."
"Nothing happened anyway. If something did, it would
still be his fault." Virginia exclaimed chopping the lettuce into thinner
pieces and blushing while doing so.
"It sounds like you're disappointed that nothing happened." The moment Clive said that remark, Virginia cut her finger and it started to bleed.
"You heard me."
"WHAT!?" Virginia exclaimed, bandaging her cut.
"There's no way that's possible! I couldn't care less
if something happened between her and me. I don't care for her and she doesn't
care for me." Jet acknowledged.
"I'm just saying..."
"That can't be possible! N-Nothing happened! Besides,
if something did happen. I couldn't care less! It's not like I wanted something
to happen! It's not like he even cares for me." Virginia explained.
"I wouldn't be too sure..."
"I mean, I care for her cause she's my team mate.
We're nothing more. It's not like she cares for me or anything." Jet
"Now we're getting somewhere."
"Sure I care for him, but that because we're friends.
I wouldn't really mind if we were something more, but it's not like he would
want us to be." Virginia admitted.
"And what if he does?"
"What do I care? I wouldn't really mind if we became
something more than teammates but-What the hell am I saying? I-It's not like
she likes me or anything! Jet admitted accidentally.
"And what if she does?"
"What?" Virginia asked Clive still cutting.
"W-What?" Jet asked blushing furiously.
"I'll bet she really likes you."
"Jet couldn't like me! He...doesn't..." Virginia
"Alright then, we shall see."
"Y-You're crazy!! She hates my guts! Every morning I
wake up wondering why I'm still alive. I'm surprised she hasn't shot me
yet!" Jet yelled.
"He doesn't like me-not that I care or
anything!" Virginia yelled.
"Care to check?"
"Hmph. Fine, it's not like it matters." Jet
"A-Alright. But I'm warning you that he doesn't like
me." Virginia stammered.
So the two groups began to walk and find where the others
were. In hope of some truth as well as a little bit of romance. Virginia's team
headed for the gate of Boot Hill and Jet's team headed for the town as well. So
eventually, they met up at the entrance of the town. Virginia and Jet looked at
each other with an uneasy look and Gallows and Clive smiled. Virginia seemed to
be biting her lower lip and Jet was clenching his fists.
"So...tell Jet what you told me." Clive instructed Virginia.
"What are you doing? I already know she doesn't give a rats-"
"Shh..." Gallows told Jet with a smirk playing on his face.
Jet crossed his arms and looked away. Hoping his pain would be quick and swift.
"I--..." Virginia started.
What are you trying to say? That you...like me?
This is it... Clive thought.
"I-don't really give a care for you!!" Virginia yelled.
Clive shook his head in protest. "What was that? I thought you were going to tell him how you really feel!" Clive whispered to her disappointed.
"Well Jet, what do you say?" Gallows asked Jet.
Jet clenched his fist even harder. "I-"
Here it comes. Gallows thought.
"I don't really give a care for you either!!" Jet yelled.
"Whaaa!? I thought you were going to confess!" Gallows said to him.
But instead, Jet and Virginia broke out arguing.
"Well I never said that I did!"
"I bet you did!"
"You're the one who said that you did!!"
"Since the other night!"
"Whatever! I am so not listening to you!"
"That's right you block it out cause you know it's true!"
"Yeah right Jet!!"
"Well we tried." Gallows said finally.
"Indeed." Clive replied.
And so, they became nothing more than friends as well as teammates. Because they had no clue what would happen if they were to become something more.
"It's your fault!"
"WILL YOU TWO SHUT UP!?"
