A/N: I've been writing these little one-shots for a while now but have been hesitant to put them out here because it seems unoriginal now that many people are doing the same thing. Of course, not all of them will be centered around Gru and Lucy. Most will have the whole family, some will even feature the minions. I'm sure you all know where I got the title from, one of my favorite scenes in the movie. That's about all I have to say, so enjoy the first installment of Song Of Lies.
"Are you sure you don't want to hold my hand?"
"Not even a little, teensy bit?"
"No, I don't 'hold hands'."
"You will soon."
Lucy Wilde had just come out of the restaurant where she and her current business partner and boyfriend, Gru, had their first date. It had went very well, not like Lucy expected it to go badly, but something was missing. Maybe it was the lack of his hand around her own as they walked in the pleasant twilight.
"Please Gru." Lucy pouted, hanging onto his shoulder.
Lucy saw a smirk tug at the corner of his lips before her answered, serious again, "No."
Lucy let go of her partner's shoulder and resumed walking beside him. The bubbly redhead remained quiet for a moment, soaking in every detail of the night. The orange glow of the sunset, the tranquil air of the town, the crimson leaves on all the trees, the man standing next to her. A wide grin grin spread across Lucy's face. She had jumped out of a plane for him.
"Are you okay?" Gru asked, noticing Lucy's change in facial expression.
"Oh, yes, I'm great actually." Lucy said, snapping out of her daze.
"Alrighty then." Gru said slowly. In truth he was a little scared by Lucy's sudden change in emotion. Last time this had happened he had gotten a face-full of cupcake frosting and was not ready to repeat that situation.
"It's just that... Well, I never thought..." Lucy stumbled over the right words. She moved her hands around, hoping it would help explain her loss of words.
"You never thought what?" Gru asked, completely oblivious to Lucy's bizarre hand gestures.
"I never thought that I'd ever be dating an ex-villain. Actually, I never thought that I'd be dating anyone, ex-villain or not."
Emerald eyes looked into blue as the pair stopped walking. The two leaned in closer to each other until they were only few inches apart.
"Ehem." Gru coughed, moving out. His cheeks reddened and he adjusted his scarf nervously. "I don't know why you tink dat, you are a very lovable person."
Lucy looked at him, her green eyes catching the glint of the setting sun. She also was blushing furiously.
"Oh, thank you." Lucy stammered, wringing her hands together. She blushed even harder.
The two continued walking. An awkward silence hung in the air. Lucy looked down at her feet, wishing there was something she could say to break the silence.
"Gru..." Lucy began but stopped abruptly as Gru's fingers intertwined with her own.
"Dis ez what you wanted right?" Gru asked, a smile lingering on his lips.
"Yes." Lucy said, leaning into Gru, "Thanks."
The couple walked hand in hand, talking about whatever came to mind. They stopped when they reached Lucy's apartment. Lucy hated to go, but all good things had to come to an end eventually.
"Thank you, Gru." She said, looking into his eyes.
"For what?" Gru asked.
"Everything. Rescuing me, asking me out, walking with me, holding my hand, but most importantly, this." With that said, Lucy grabbed the end of Gru's scarf and brought his lips crashing into hers. Gru was surprised, but didn't resist. The kiss was soft and brief, but there was no hiding the emotion behind it.
The two broke apart, Lucy blushed and nervously tucked a strand of hair behind her ear.
Gru stood, staring at Lucy. He never would have expected that, especially on their first date. But his partner was known to be a little unexpected.
"You don't know how long I've waited to do that." Lucy said, a playful smirk spread across her face.
"Oh." Was all Gru could manage to say.
"Well, I'll see you tomorrow, partner!" Lucy said. She gave Gru a quick peck on the cheek before retreating up the steps to her apartment.
"Yes, see you tomorrow." Gru called to Lucy. She waved and went inside, leaving Gru standing outside like a love-struck teenager.
