A Yuy Daughter by Jasmine Starlight
Ling sighed; he seemed to be doing a lot of that lately.
You might ask why our favorite and only second generation male Chang would be sighing because sighing is only for sissies and Quatre, that's what his dad thought.
Ling wondered how Uncle Quatre would feel if he told him that.
Back to Ling's problem, you see Michelle and Daniel aren't the only ones with issues in the love department, you see Ding-A-Ling was quite infatuated with a certain Rika Barton.
This sucked because, if he asked her out on a date her father would go ballistic, he might even shout!
Uncle Trowa shouting wasn't something he wanted to hear or be on the receiving end of.
But first he had to actually talk to her, and since that might not happen until the next century, Ling wasn't really in any danger of going deaf or maybe becoming a eunuch.
"What?" he asked incredulously.
"Can I talk to you? Like in private." asked Michelle fiddling with her bracelet.
Daniel's eyes narrowed, "Why?" he asked suspiciously.
"Um, it's important." she said, still fiddling with her bracelet.
Corina sighed, "Dan, are you a moron? She wants to ask you out." she said drawing out every word.
Michelle looked like she was going to have a heart attack, "How'd you know?" she asked, surprised.
"Ling just text messaged me." she said waving her phone in the air.
Michelle's eyes narrowed, "He did?" She looked over at their table to see Ling and Andrea cracking up, upon seeing her looking at them they waved, Michelle gave them the finger.
Corina cleared her throat, "Right, um, might as well just get on with it, Daniel will you go out with me?"
"I thought you had a boyfriend." he said accusingly.
"Obviously not anymore." said Sean.
"Actually not ever." said Michelle nervously.
Daniel's brows furrowed, but before Michelle could explain Corina held her phone in Daniel's face.
"Well, seeing as you guys fight like cats and dogs, if you pretend that you have a boyfriend and he gives up on you and actually gets a girlfriend, then he will be unavailable, meaning that he will be more appealing to you, thus meaning that your roles would be reversed. I know you like him but you're too much of a scaredy cat to admit it." he read aloud.
Michelle turning to Corina, "Ling, again?" she asked wearily.
Corina nodded, "My brother is really informative."
"Great, is there anyone who doesn't know about this?" asked Michelle tiredly.
Sean thought for a moment, "Our parents, which is a good thing."
Michelle, Corina, and Daniel simultaneously rolled their eyes.
Once Michelle had left to ask Daniel out, Andrea broke the companionable silence between them with, "So, when're you going to ask Rika out?"
Ling choked on his soda, "What are you talking about?" he asked.
"You know exactly what I'm talking about Ding-Dong."
"No, I don't. Don't call me that." he hissed back at her.
Andrea was thoughtful for a moment, then she started rummaging through her school bag, finding her phone, she began to press buttons rapidly.
"Well, since you don't like her you wouldn't mind me telling her you don't like her would you?" asked Andrea mischievously, holding up her phone with a text message that read. 'Ling doesnt like u'
"You wouldn't" he said.
"Wouldn't I? My father has been pranking yours since they were fifteen, I'm little late but it's now or never."
Ling sighed and sank lower into his chair, and Andrea declaring victory deleted the message from her phone.
"How exactly am I supposed to do this?" he asked wearily.
Andrea seemed to think this over. "I've got it!" she exclaimed
Looking up, "Got what?" he asked.
Andrea rolled her eyes, "How you're going to ask Rika out, dumbass."
Ling sighed, "You know I might not have told you this, but she has a boyfriend. Not a pretend boyfriend, like Michelle's, a real one. Guess who it is. Guess." He said, sneering.
"Who is it?" she asked cautiously.
Ling replied in an extremely controlled voice, "Zephyr Marquise." then he proceeded to stab Michelle's abandoned fries again and again and again.
Grabbing the fork out of his hand, "When did this happen?" she asked carefully.
"How should I know?" he grumbled, crumbling up his hamburger bun.
Andrea rolled her eyes and took away his plate, "Why is she dating him? Isn't like 'Womanizer of the Year'?"
"Something like that." he muttered.
"Wouldn't Uncle Trowa blow a gasket?" she asked.
"That's what I was counting on. But Aunt Middi stepped in and now they're all happy about it." he said condescendingly.
"It seems we have a problem."
"You want me to help you or not?"
"Hmmm, I think it's time to call in the big guns." she said speculatively.
"What exactly does that entail?" he asked cautiously.
"I think you know." she said seriously.
"No I don't."
"Yes you do."
"No I don't."
"Yes you do."
"No I don't."
"Yes you do."
"No you don't."
"What the fuck are you saying?!" he said in an outburst oddly reminiscent of Duo Maxwell.
Andrea rolled her eyes, "Do you have to use such language?"
"You do." he pointed out.
"I'm a Maxwell. What's you excuse?" she asked pointedly.
Ling just glared his Dragon Clan Stare of Dishonor™ not at all to be confused with the Yuy Death Glare™ or the Winner Face of Innocence™ or the Barton Stare of I Know Something You Don't™ or even the Maxwell Shitfaced Grin™.
Andrea just grinned her Maxwell Shitfaced Grin™, Wufei may have been able to withstand such a grin but Ling was younger and not even to that level of I-Have-The-Largest-Stick-You-Can-Even-Imagine-Up-My-Ass and fell easily to it.
