A ShikaHina Ficlet
It doesn't hurt anymore, when he calls her troublesome. It doesn't bother anymore, when he tells her she's stupid. It doesn't mean anything, when he says she annoys him. It doesn't cause pain anymore, when he says she's unworthy.
Nowadays, he means nothing that he says. Right about now, he cares nothing for what he does. Honestly and truly, he says nothing that he believes. For the actuality, he understands nothing about what he knows.
So, when he calls her troublesome, she knows that she is his everything. When he tells her she's stupid, he knows it means she's the smartest he's ever met. When he says she annoys him, she's aware it means he loves her pestering. When he says she's unworthy, she knows he's saying she's the best he'll get.
He knows he says those ridiculous things every day, but the part they don't show, the lost scene, is when he says he loves her and kisses her passionately, saying everything he means with one simple action. And every word he shares that way, she repeats to him, because that's just how it's done.
Prompt number four.
Oh, and surprise! I'm still alive, you guys. Did you give up on me? I sure hope not. Although it may take me a bit to get back into the swing of things, I will be back and fully operational soon, I hope. Wish me luck!
