"I'm in love!" Charley darted ito the living room, grabbed Vinnie and spun him around. "With a wonderful, lovely man! He's all I ever wanted and more! He's sweet and kind, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to marry him!"
"Gee, thanks, babe," Vinnie said with a blush. "I think you're swell too."
"Not you," Charley said, dismissively waving a hand at him.
"Aw, damn," Vinnie mumbled, flopping into a chair.
"So who's the guy?" Throttle asked.
"Lawrence Limburger," Charley said, with a dreamily happy look on her face. Modo almost inhaled his root beer in shock, and Throttle's mouth dropped open. Vinnie merely sat with a blank look on his face.
"What?!" Throttle finally found a word in his shock. Charley gave him her sweetest smile.
"She's under some sort of drug," Modo said firmly. Charley shook her head.
"Nope!" Oh, this is so damn precious. Where's a camera when you need one?
"You're telling us... you're not on drugs? He didn't capture you and use the mind-bender beam or give you a love potion or chant some sort of crazy-" Vinnie took a breath. "-spell over you?"
"No," Charley said, and felt herself start to crack up. She held it in as hard as she could.
"Charley-ma'm, he's Plutarkian and you're human. Forgive me my language, but what the hell do you see in him?!" Modo's eye began to glow red, and Charley knew she had to wrap it up soon or she'd have some very angry mice on her hands. A smile tugged at her lips.
"Lots of things," she said.
"Like what? A similar insanity?!"
"Something like that."
"Charley-ma'm, if you're serious-" Modo was cut off by Charley's sudden, all-consuming fit of laughter.
"No!" she choked through her laughter. "I'm not- ha ha ha ha- serious! Not at- hee hee hoo ha ha ah ha- all!"
The three Biker Mice watched her, obviously thinking she'd gone insane. Charley ran herself out, and finally sat up, staring up at them from the floor.
"Happy April Fool's day," she said, and snickered. Vinnie blinked, and then approached her and leaned down right into her face. The other two moved behind her, and she knew the fun had just about run itself out. Oh, well. That was entertaining.
"Charley, if you ever do that again," Vinnie started, and then trailed off. Charley shrank away a bit. I didn't think they'd be this mad, she thought.
"What? It's not like I was actually-" she shuddered "-in love with him. It was a joke!" She looked up and behind herself, at Throttle and Modo. The latter Biker Mouse's eye was faintly glowing red. "Aaaawwww..."
"You need to get out more," Throttle said finally, the corner of his mouth quirking up. Charley grinned.
