Chuckling a bit, Veronica walked over to the door of the bathroom. She knocked a couple of times, but Tara didn't hear her. Luckily Tara didn't lock it, so she walked in. "TARA" She shouted. "WAAAH" Tara screamed, jumping up, than slipping and falling down. The shower was turned up, so it ended up like a mini geyser over the curtains and spraying all over Veronica "Ugh, idiot.." She growled, walking back. "Are you alive?" She asked, tilting her head a bit "YES" Tara exclaimed, taking control of the shower again. "Sorry..." "Eh, whatever. Just stop singing, I beg of you." On her way out, she caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror and stopped. Rethinking what Emile said, she took off her pigtails and combed her hair with her fingers a little. "Meh.." She shrugged, putting the ribbons in her pockets and walking out "Done." She told Kaji. Tara walked out soon "Sorry... Again.." She said blushing.
"Back. I made us both some pretty awesome drinks." Lance said, while walking back into their room. He held two drinks in his hands, both in fine wine glasses, and filled with some red liquid. "Just don't drink too fast." he said, putting Kimiko's glass down on the mini-table beside her. "You'll want to savor the taste."
Shawn was sound asleep on his bed, snuggled up under his blanket while snoring his head off.
"Heh, thanks." Kimiko said, smiling. She took it with her other arm, and took a small sip. "Wow, it's really good." She said, slightly surprised. After a couple of moments, she became suddenly serious "Lance, lock the door...."
"Huh? Okay... if you say so, I guess." Lance mumbled, turning back to the door, closing it, and finally locking it. "Why? Have any... plans?" he asked, turning back to her as he took a sip from his glass.
"Sit." She told him, hiding the claw further behind her back. "I... Uh... really need to tell you something." She said, clearing her throat in the middle of the sentence. She leaned over to the table, putting the glass back to it's place.
"Well.. uh..." Gulping, she started to bring her hand from behind her back, but stopped. "Heh heh, this is not really easy for me to do..." She said, looking down. After a short awkward power, she rose her head up again "This is really awkward... Lance...."
Lance's eyes widened as he paused. Staring at Kimiko, he quickly swallowed his drink and threw the glass beside him, thinking, "No way!" Then, kneeling before her, Lance took her hand, speaking, "Oh, Kimiko! I know just how you feel! I... I think I love you, too!"
"Eh...?" She looked down at him, tilting her head to the side a bit. She narrowed her eyebrows, feeling tad sorry how he misunderstood. She slowly showed him her hand, and forced a smile "... I'm a raigon." She took the hand he was holding, and put it on top of his head "You're really sweet, but don't you think you're a bit young for me? I don't know about dating boys 5 years younger than me... But again, I say, you are really sweet" She said, patting his head a couple of times.
Veronica said goodbye to both Tara and Kaji. She stood in the hallway, leaning on the wall. "Meh, I've been sleepy the whole day, and now I can't sleep. Ugh." She headed out, and went to the front of the deck seeing Setsuna there. "Uh.. hi?" She said walking over to the railing, but around 10 meters away from him.
"..." The look on Lance's face didn't go away for a while. At first he thought she was joking, but the hand was good enough proof for anybody. Lance just returned a smile to her, before instantly getting up and breaking the door down, running full-speed ahead, away from their room. "Raigon! Raigon! She's a Raigon! A mother lovin' Raigon!" he kept repeating to himself, making a turn and heading for the deck.
