A Simple Request

"Can you hold this for a second?" Jason asked Caitlyn as he held out his hand to her.

She gave him a questioning glance, "Hold what?"

"This," he said as he grabbed hold of her hand.

Caitlyn chuckled when she realized what he had asked, "That was smooth."

He nodded with a smirk, "I know."

"Any particular reason you want to hold a stranger's hand?" Caitlyn asked curiously with a confused glance.

He shrugged, "Not really. I just wanted to see how you would react."

"The verdict?" She asked.

"You took it rather well," He told her. "You're Mitchie's friend, right?"

She nodded, "I'm Caitlyn."

Jason continued to hold her hand, "Cool."

"Are you going to let go of my hand anytime soon?"

"Probably not," Jason said simply.

"Good to know," Caitlyn answered with an amused expression.

"Hey Caitlyn?" Mitchie asked as she approached the couple.


"You have a boy bander attached to your hand," Mitchie smirked.

"I've noticed," Caitlyn deadpanned.

"Just thought I would let you know," Mitchie chuckled.

Shane joined Mitchie and stared curiously at his brother and Caitlyn, "Ah, the old 'hold a stranger's hand' test…how'd she handle it?"

"She was pretty chill about it," Jason smiled.

Caitlyn turned a curious gaze in his direction, "Do you do this a lot?"

"At least once a month. I like watching how people react."

"Anyone ever tell you you're crazy?" Caitlyn asked.

"On more than one occasion," Jason nodded.

"I kind of like it," She said thoughtfully.

"Yeah?" He asked her eagerly.

She smirked, "Yeah."

"I think you're both crazy," Mitchie told them with a soft laugh.

"I completely agree," Shane said with an amused shake of his head. Nate passed the group and paused when he noticed Jason holding hands with Caitlyn. He stopped beside Shane.

"The hand holding test again?" He asked flatly.

"What else?" Shane chuckled.

Just a cute little drabble I thought up. My friend Austin actually did that to me the other day, and I just thought it sounded like something Jason would do, lol.
