Hello fellow FanFictioners, I'm back! I'm sorry that I haven't uploaded anything in a while. I have had MAJOR writers block recently and I couldn't think of anything for a while. Don't worry, I'm fine now, and I hope this story makes up for it.
I shall try to upload more frequently with this fic as my mind is working better now (and it shall also depend on the reviews I get for this story, so if you want to see more of this, then leave good reviews!).
Also, about AOI, it has NOT been discontinued, it's just I've had difficulty with picking the 'What If?' questions for everyone (I can see why many people discontinue their AOI stories, it's hard!) but I am determind to finish the story with everyone asking a What If? question so if I haven't uploaded for that story in a while, just assume that I'm having deciding what to do for whatever character I'm doing and not that I've discontinued it.
Please read this and I hope you enjoy it!
Jealousy Is A Terrible Thing
"Will you go out with me?".
"For the last time Fry, no!" Leela said.
This was like, the 20th time Fry has asked her out, and Leela was getting sick of it.
"Come on Leela, why won't you go out with me?".
"I have my reasons" she said, turning to leave the room.
"Just one dinner with me Leela, please?".
"No! Look Fry, I like you... As a friend. And it is obvious that you want to be more than friends, but I don't like you that way. I don't think that I will ever like you that way".
"Fry, you're a nice guy, but, you're just not what I'm looking for in a man".
"I could be if you will just give me a chance" he said.
"I'm sorry Fry. I think that it's best if you forget about me and move on with your life" she said, then left the room.
Distraught that Leela had rejected him once again, he sat down on the couch and slouched backwards into his seat. Bender walks in and sits beside him.
"She rejected you again?" Bender said.
"Yeah, she did" Fry said.
"She's right, you know. You should forget about her".
"Were you outside listening to our conversation this whole time?".
"How long have you know this woman?" Bender said, clearly ignoring what Fry has said.
"About roughly five years but I don't see what that has to do with any...".
"And in that time, has she ever said 'yes' to your dating request?".
"Well, no but...".
"So it seems that she is never going to say 'yes' any time soon, right?".
"Well, when you put it that way...".
"So, therefore, you should take my advice and forget about her".
"But, isn't it technically Leela's advice...".
"You say potato, I say it was my idea".
"Anyway, you're right. Thank you Bender. You really are a great friend aren't you?" Fry said before standing up and leaving.
"Yeah, I am great aren't I?" Bender said, putting his footcups up on the table in front of the couch and turning on the TV.
"And that was it. You don't think I was being harsh, do you?".
"Well, just a bit" said Amy.
"What do you mean by 'just a bit'?".
"Well, you always seem to reject him without giving him a chance and what you said to him seemed a tiny bit harsh, if you get what I mean".
"Not really, but I think I get the gist of it".
"What I mean is you reject him all the time for what looks like no reason at all".
"I have my reasons. Reasons I don't want to talk about with you right now... But come on, it's Fry. I'm sure that whenever I leave after saying no, he's off having fun with Bender drinking or something".
"Well, sometimes after you finish speaking to him, I walk past him and he always is on the couch with a very sad look on his face, like you killed the inner child in him or something like that".
"Really? Well, soon enough, he is going to forget about me and when I left him a moment ago, he seemed fine. He's going to be fine, isn't he?".
"What? Oh, I'm sorry. I wasn't listening. I was doing my make-up".
"He's going to be fine. He's fine".
One week later
"It's being a whole week since I've seen Fry. He's not fine, is he? Oh no. Was it something I said? Oh no, I can't breathe" Leela said, trying to catch her breath.
"Calm down. Wow, I've never seen you this worried about Fry before".
"Worried? I'm not worried. I'm just... Concerned about a crew member".
"You never act this way when Bender goes missing, and he's a crew member".
"Bender is a robot, he can do fine on his own, but Fry...".
Amy looks at her.
"You really think that I should have given him a chance?".
"What? You like him now?".
"Well... It couldn't have hurt to do it, could it?".
"Well, you're not getting any younger and at some point, you're going to lose the rest of your looks that make-up can't fix, so you may as well go for Fry".
"Lose the rest of my looks? Thanks a lot Amy!".
"My point is, do you like him that way?".
"I never used to, but now that he's gone... I don't know any more".
"Well, it's your decision, not mine. You need to decide".
Leela was about to say something when she heard the door open. Stepping through the door was Fry.
"Fry, is that you?" Leela said, running over to him.
"Oh, hi Leela. I need to talk to you".
"I need to talk to you as well".
"Hello?" came a voice that she didn't recognise.
Standing behind Fry was a woman with long, blonde hair and she was wearing a pink and white chequered t-shirt and jeans. Fry grabs her hand and stands next to her.
"Leela, Amy, I'd like you to meet my new girlfriend, Sandy".
