Just a little drabble I wrote while my friend and I were watching iStill Pyscho at about 1:30 AM.
"I want Carly to do it."
I am instantly on the defense, all of my walls going up. "Why?" I bark out.
"Because Carly cares about me!" he snaps.
I've got a pretty great poker face, if I do say so myself, but I'm pretty sure my face fell just a little bit.
Does he really think I don't care about him? I checked into a mental hospital for him! Sure I torture him, but that's just my way of showing affection, and he should know me well enough by now to know that.
I want to shove him into a wall and stick the pen right in his neck. "Of course I care about you," I want to growl in his face so he gets the message. Carly acts before I can, shocking Freddie and short-circuting (hopefully) the chip in his brain.
It's not until later that I say it, whispering to myself that night.
"I still love you, you idiot."
