Theme #2: Calls

From Mikari-chan's prompt: Calls

Pairing: Lelouch x Shirley

Rating: K+

Summary: Lelouch never finished a call with Shirley, which she finds frustrating. When he calls her and she doesn't answer, that's when he gets worried and at the same time, annoyed.

Her phone rang and vibrated in her jean pocket while she was out eating with Yumi and Milly. Nina couldn't come because she was with Nunally. Shirley didn't notice or hear the cell phone, and the other two girls didn't, either. They continued to chat about a certain boy, a boy who was busy calling a certain someone who didn't know about her phone.

Lelouch groaned. Shirley wasn't picking up. Usually, she did. This was worrying him, and annoying him. He called around 12 times already, and she hadn't picked up any of those calls. This was going to affect the bill, and Yumi was not too happy about the last bill, which cost a lot of money due to the constant calls Lelouch made to Shirley. He slapped his phone shut and turned to a daydreaming Suzaku.

"No, she won't pick up."

The next day, Lelouch asked Shirley if he could talk to her.

"Yeah, what is it?" she asked him as they walked down the hall.

"Why didn't you answer my calls yesterday?" Lelouch asked. "I was worried!"

"I told you I would be with Yumi and Milly, didn't I?"

"No, and Suzaku wanted to talk to Yumi, but she left her phone at home by accident, and so I called you. However, you didn't pick up your phone!"

"Oh, sorry, I didn't notice my phone vibrate or ring at all."

"It's okay. Next time, tell me beforehand, all right?"


Shirley groaned in frustration. Lelouch had just hung up on her suddenly, and she even thought she heard a girl's voice in the background!

What if…no, Lelouch's not like that! Shirley berated herself for thinking such thoughts. Yumi was walking in through the door when Shirley screamed, making Yumi jump back into Suzaku in surprise.


"S-Shirley?!" Yumi asked nervously. "Are you okay?"

"No, I'm not okay! Lelouch hung up on me, AGAIN!"

"Let me see if I can get to him, okay?"


"I'll take that as a yes." Yumi dialed Lelouch's cell number, and he picked up. On the receiving line, Lelouch cringed when Yumi's angry voice nearly deafened his ear. Kallen was nearby and listened curiously.


"Sorry, I had…errands."

"AND DOES ERRANDS INCLUDE HANGING UP ON YOUR FUTURE GIRLFRIEND?!" Lelouch blushed at that and Kallen's mouth dropped open.

"Quiet, Yumi! You're embarrassing me!" Lelouch hissed into the phone.

"WHATEVER, JUST DON'T DO THAT AGAIN, OR I WILL HANG UP ON YOU!" Yumi then hung up on him. He sighed and sunk into his chair.

"Good luck with Shirley, Lelouch." Kallen told Lelouch as she passed by. Lelouch's eyes bugged out in surprise.

"Y-You didn't hear anything!"

"I'm sorry." The two apologized, eyes locking with each other.

"I'm really sorry about not answering your calls."

"I'm really, really sorry about hanging up on you."

"I'm really sorry!!!" The two both said at the same time. Yumi and Suzaku laughed.

"You guys are in synch." Suzaku grinned.

"What do you expect? It's because they're compatible!"

A few weeks later, Shirley is yelling at Lelouch on the phone for hanging up on her-again.

"If you're going at it with a girl, just tell me!" Shirley's heart sank at the mention of that.

"I-I-It's not like that! I don't like any girl! And that's plain disgusting!"

"What about Kallen, huh? You two seem to be closer."

"Kallen? No way, wait a minute…are you jealous?" Lelouch's smirk was already pictured in Shirley's brain.

"No, I just wanna know!" Shirley snapped, indignant. Lelouch chuckled.

"You're jealous…my girl is jealous!" Lelouch laughed, then suddenly shut up when he just remembered what he said.

My girl…my girl… The words registered in her head. Shirley's face blew up in a full shade of red and pink.

"L-Lelouch…we're discussing this when you get back," Shirley slowly said, her words sounding deadly. Lelouch gulped.

"Yes ma'm!"

Later, when Lelouch got back and plopped onto the bed, Yumi from the bed next to him turned around and looked at him.

"Why is your face all red?"
