During game one-shot set in a random inn somewhere fairly late on in the quest. Pointless fluffy Colette and Zelos conversation, contains hints of Colloyd.

Disclaimer: I don't own Tales of Symphonia, I believe that it belongs to Namco.

Dedication: to the Sheelos Sisters, I hope that it will amuse them.

"Hey Colette!" Zelos smiled and waved as he walked past the blonde who was settled in a big armchair by the inn's living room fireplace. Then he blinked, paused and walked back to the chair.

"Little angel, what, what on Tethe'alla are you wearing?" he asked, trying not to laugh.

"Well, all of my clothes are being washed but Lloyd and Sheena had some spare clean stuff so they let me borrow it," Colette smiled happily.

The effect of Colette wearing a mixture of Lloyd and Sheenas' clothes, all of which were too big for her, was a comical one. The fluffy slippers on her feet and the fact that her hair was wrapped up in a towel made it even more so.

"Somehow I don't think you're going to start a new fashion trend in Meltokio with that," Zelos smiled and shook his head.

"I don't mind, I just didn't want to wear dirty clothes after having a shower," Colette smiled, tipping her head to one side in a contented expression.

"You know if it wasn't too big for you I think that Mizuho style stuff might suit you. You should ask Sheena to help you make something in your size sometime," the redhead said.

"Do you think Lloyd would like it if I wore something like that?" the little Chosen asked.

"I'm sure he'd think you'd look beautiful," Zelos chuckled, patting Colette on the head gently.

"That'd be good, I like to look nice for Lloyd," Colette said softly, blushing.

"He thinks a lot of you you know, you're a real special hunny to him. So often he talks about 'Colette this' and 'Colette that', I'd say you're doing pretty well on your quest to look nice for him, although he likes you for a lot more reasons than just your looks," Zelos smiled.

"He talks about me to you?" Colette asked.

"Sometimes, and sometimes I can tell he's thinking about you even if he's not saying anything because he gets this silly expression on his face," Zelos chuckled.

Colette blushed and smiled softly.

"Yeap, that's the one, that's just like the expression he pulls," Zelos chuckled again, ruffling Colette's hair, rather unsuccessfully through the towel.

"You two are lucky to have each other you know," the redhead spoke softly and in a more serious tone after a few moments of companionable silence. Colette nodded.

"There's not a day that goes by when I don't think about how grateful I am to have him in my life," the blonde's voice was barely above a whisper.

"I'm sure he feels the same way," Zelos said.

"You know, I'm sure there's someone who'll feel the same way about you one day, if she doesn't already," Colette smiled.

"What? The great Zelos Wilder having just one special hunny? Go on, get out of here and go see Lloyd, you haven't hugged him for at least five minutes, you two are probably suffering withdrawal symptoms or something," Zelos grinned.

Colette giggled and stood up to leave. When she got to the door she paused as the other Chosen called her name.

"Thank you," he said softly. Colette simply smiled, nodded, then left.
