"Aren't you a little old for box forts?"
The young girl tapped her chin thoughtfully. "I don't think so," she shrugged. Then she smiled. "Come and join me!"
Mikron's face flushed. "Well...um..." he tried desperately not to look into the ten year-old's angelic smile. He sighed "Okay, fine!" he growled.
Mikron lowered to his knees, face burning. The girl scooted to make room, and Mikron crawled inside the box fort. It was a pretty good sized fort, so there was plenty of space. "Melvin, how come you never showed me this thing before?"
Melvin shrugged. "I just got enough boxes today. Cyborg ordered some new kind of toy. I think someone spray-painted on his car."
Mikron tried not to grin. "Promise you won't tell?"
Melvin nodded hesitantly.
"That was Kyd and See-More. How mad is he?"
"He said some...things..."
Mikron didn't press.
Just then the entire fort decided to collapse. Right. On top. Of them.
Mikron shoved a box off of himself, and helped Melvin with hers.
"Are you okay?!" Melvin gasped, checking over Mikron, making sure to check every place.
Mikron scoffed and tried to hide his slowly creeping blush. "Im fine! I'm older than you, I can handle it!"
Melvin grinned. "Only by two years!"
"Huh? Why'd ya do that blondie?"
Melvin giggled. "Because,"
Mikron looked confused. "Because why?" he demanded.
Melvin giggled again. "Because..." she leaned in and whispered in his ear. "...you're it,"
Mikron didn't even have time to process this before she took off running around the room. Mikron took after her as fast as he could run (which isn't very fast, 'case you're wonderin'.), yelling random insults at her.
They continued for what seemed like forever, running and tripping over boxes. Screaming and laughing.
"There! You're it!" Melvin yelled, ducking behind some large boxes.
"You scuzz munchin' cheater, I am not!" Mikron whined, shaking his fist but chasing after her anyway.
A bit later, Melvin and Mikron collapsed onto the boxes, there chest moving rapidly up and down with breath. "I'm...tired..." Melvin yawned, leaning onto Mikron's shoulder.
"I...kinda am, too..." Mikron said groggily. Mikron leaned agains a wall, Melvin slowly drifting off in his lap. And he slowly followed suit, his eyelids getting droopier by the second.
THE CUTENESS! Okay, okay. My teeth are all rotted out now. Oh, right, and those who don't know, Mikron is Gizmo's real name. Yes, I am completely serious here. I love this pairing! Kinda short though. Oh well, sorry. I can SO see this happening. Lol.
Later, my wonderful reviewers!
