Theme : Envy

"Have you ever envied someone?" Vanitas asks, while I'm trying to think of something to say. This gives me something to answer, instead of having to think of something to randomly tell him about myself.

"Yeah," I admit. Popping my knuckles, I uncross my legs, stand and stretch. When I open my eyes I see Vanitas staring. "What?"

"Who would that be?" he asks, chuckling. Seriously, why is he chuckling. Nothing is funny about me stretching, right?

I sigh and push the hair away from my face, focusing my vision on the construction sight on the other side of the street. I don't know what they're building, but it's a tall building. Probably more apartments. "My friend Kairi. She's got really good connections, a better personality, and she's way more popular with guys than I am. It's always been that way. Even back in high school."

"Is this that girl with the red hair?" he asks. I nod. "She's more popular than you are? I think that's a lie."

Now I'm glad that I'm looking across the room, because now I'm blushing, and he can't see through the back of my head so I turn away toward the kitchen. "Do you want something to eat?"

"No," he says, then realizes what I've done. "You changed the subject."


"You changed the subject, idiot," he pushes.

"Did not," I lie. Then I have to turn around and look at him. "What exactly do you ,mean by that?"

He shrugs. "I give credit where credit is due. That girl with red hair is cute, but not too cute. You're a different story." Vanitas put his hands behind his head and propped his feet up on the table. I kick them down. That's just a pet peeve of mine.

"I'm a different story?"

"That means you're cuter," he mutters. Vanitas looks at me. "Oh, don't turn all red. I'm just saying. It's not like I'm interested."

"Hey!" I protest, crossing my arms. I'm cute, but he's not interested…? Well, I'm glad that he's not, but to say such a thing in such a tone!

He looks down at his phone and stands. "Well, I have to go. I have a shoot in thirty minutes." He walks to the front door, but turns and pats me on the shoulder. "Thanks for the…help," he says.

In a sarcastic manner.

And I went another month without updating... :(

SailorAngelMoon1 : Lol, well I'm glad you found it entertaining. xD

DiveintoHeart : Yeah, it will have a lot of speech lol. That's pretty ironic, but that's why I like it too. ^-^

VanitasVanitatum : Glad you like it so much! :)
