Mallory: I'm actually updating twice in the same week!
Soren: I think that means you're lazy and won't do what little menial work you have been asigned.
Mallory: Hey! I've worked my butt off in the past two days!
Soren: Oh so you cut down a few trees and threw around a few bales of hay, big deal.
Mallory: I cut down those trees for charity! Those disabled people now have a cleared out horse trail to ride their horses on. I might have thrown around bales for money, but I also had to muck out stalls, which smells like a big load of...well horse crap.
Soren: But you also got to ride horses around, which is for fun!
Mallory: ...Well...I disclaim!
Soren: We're still talking about this later!

A Dream

Sharkboy shot awake with Lavagirl's name on his lips. He looked around, expecting to see the dark cell around him, but found the deep blue of his bedroom wall.

He took a few deep breaths before lifting his hand to wipe his face, surprised when it came back, wet with tears. "It was all a dream." He whispered before a quiet voice from beside him ansewed.

"What was?"

Sharboy jumped at the soft sound of the voice and looked over to see the sleepy face of Lavagirl sitting up in the bed beside him.

"Lavagirl!" He shouted before grabbing her in a hug. He felt her hug back and he breathed in her scent. "I thought I'd lost you."

She pulled away to look him in the eyes. "Do you want to talk about it?"

He shook his head. "Not really." He looked up nervously at her.

"What?" She asked.

He gulped before replying. "There's something I need to do."

She gave him a weird look. "Go ahead, what is it."

"It's something that I should have done a while ago, and I realized that I should do it before it's too late." He took a deep breath.

"Go ahead and do it. I'll wait on you." She said as she slung her legs over the side of the bed.

"Wait." Sharkboy said as he grabbed her arm. "Close your eyes for a second." He moved to dit beside her.

Lavagirl raised her eyebrow before closing her eyes. She cracked one open. "Why do I have to close my eyes?"

Sharkboy sighed, he was slowly losing his nerve. "Just do it."

She huffed but complied. "Now what?"

"Don't move." He said as he licked his lips.

He leaned in slowly and let his eyes flutter shut. He didn't notice Lavagirl crack her eye open to see what he was doing. She gasped softly as she felt the buterfies flutter through her stomach, before closing her eyes again.

Sharkboy paused as he felt her breath on his lips. He opened an eye to see what her reaction was. He waited for a few more seconds, just in case she wanted to pull away.

"Are you going to kiss me or are we just going to sit here all day like a couple idiots?" She said, a pink blush spreading across her face.

Sharkboy smiled before pressing his lips gently to her soft warm ones. He felt her melt into the kiss as he wrapped his arms around her waist and felt her arms snake around his neck.

After what felt like no time at all in his opinion, the kiss ended. They looked into each other's eyes as they cought their breath.

"What took you so long?" Lavagirl asked with a smile.

"I have no idea." Sharkboy replied before closing in for another soft kiss.

When they pulled apart Sharkboy realized something. "What were you doing in my bed?" He asked.

Lavagirl shrugged. "The usual, Nightmares.


Soren: As Mallory keels over in exhaustion, I would like to thank all of the unfortunate souls who were conned into reading this pitiful, cliche tale...now go away. All of you. Shoo!
Mallory: As I hit Soren over the head with a broom, I would like to thank all of my faithful reviewers. Without you, this would have been left behind and forgotten.
