Two childhood friend's differing paths makes one of them anxious because of her crush.
It had definitely been comfortable. After all, using him as a pillow with the blanket over them, it was comfy. It made her feel warm and happy. At least that was what she had felt when she had been asleep. It was why she had cuddled closer to him and kept her arm around him.
Seeing him look back at her sleepily, she wasn't sure what to do. She was still very much debating what to do. The yawn, while strange, also seemed to be a bit of an ice breaker and she had to chuckle softly. "Sleepy head," she mused softly as she watched his eyes close.
His arm sliding up around her, she wasn't sure what to do. Her hand on his chest was still shifting to decide what to do. Still, seeing him look relaxed and more or less passive about it made her calm down a bit. Slowly, she moved her hand back beside him as she lowered herself back down to his chest like she had been before she had fallen asleep. Her hand moved to find his hand that wasn't around her. Touching his hand made her happy and smile softly. It had a good feeling to it.
Of course neither of them hated the movies, it wouldn't make much sense. By the time they had moved positions he had time to start to fall asleep as well, the position was rather comfortable he found, having someone laying on him like that made him feel warm inside and on the outside. Once she had started to shift around a little and look at him, his eyes slowly opened up again to see her. He noticed her face was red, but it also seemed that she was disgruntled. He opened his mouth to say something, but found himself yawning instead. He supposed he was supposed to do something more comforting, so his eyes closed once again and his arm moved up higher on her side, more like he was holding her now. He could only hope she was okay with it.
That was a fair question. They watched those movies out of tradition, but did they like them? "Well, we do watch movies that fall under the category of they are so bad they are good. As for like... I suppose it's mostly tradition," she replied with a shrug, though she had never really hated watching them.
She was definitely thrilled by this. She was happy to just be close to him and have a moment like this. How many years had she fantasized about doing this and now she finally could. If she died right now, she would no doubt die happily.
Still, she slowly grew tired and her eyes began to droop shut. Unknowingly, she shifted more against him until she nodded off. In the beginning she didn't notice when he shifted them to laying down as she slept fairly soundly, but at some point she woke up again. Confused she blinked a few times at the strange viewing angle before shifting her gaze to look at him. Seeing him and her clearly laying on his chest made her flush bright red and she was damn near to jumping up as a hand moved to his chest to use it to push off in such a case. Though for now she just stared at him in slight confusion and embarrassment.
"Do we even really like the bad ones? It's just tradition to find them ridiculous."He chuckled a little bit as well, but it seemed like, she wanted to just keep talking, somehow and enjoy each other's presence at the same time. He knew she was probably thrilled which made him feel good as well, he also knew she'd be worried about what he'd done before or how she'd get across what she felt. For the most part he knew, but it seemed he was too afraid to do really go for anything because he didn't want to ruin this, nor did he have an approximation of how shy she would be romantically.
For now they were fine, just enjoying some slight snuggling, eating snacks, watching movies, though it seemed they were getting more and more sleepy, he stayed where he was but her weight was clearly beginning to shift more against him. At some point he slowly shifted them to laying, he didn't know if she'd notice or wake up, but she was laid on his chest now for the most part.
She chuckled softly. "Oh, you think we will? Won't we just say we hate them, simply because they aren't our beloved bad movies," she pointed out, maybe to be a little challenging even, but not really. It was just movies after all.
For some reason, resting her head on his shoulder was an easy thing to do. After all, it was comfy and pretty harmless, right? Or at least she thought so. It was nice to finally do this. There were so many uncountable times where she had wanted to do this in the past, but hadn't been able to because she was too scared or he was together with Ai. Now she could do it as much as she pleased.
Feeling his head tilt to rest on hers, she smiled softly. That felt good and it was such a a simple thing. Then she felt his hand on hers and the smile only grew slightly. It was good and her hand moved ever so slightly as a reaction to show she was happy. Her other hand moved to grab some popcorn to eat it. It was good like this, at least in her opinion.
Once he sat next to her he had to agree about the movies. He shook his head a little bit, "We can watch good one's too y'know..much as we might actually end up interested in them."He smiled over at her and let out a small breath. Well they had kissed, and it was cause she said something, he knew it was hard for her to say anything in the first place, but he also didn't want to push for things and screw anything. He was surprised she got close enough to lay her head down though, he smiled to himself about it, setting a popcorn bowl in between the two of them and tilting his head a bit on her's as well.
At the very least, he was always going back in his mind about how much less tense things seemed now, he felt dumb for not realizing so long. He did slide his hand down over her's as well, why was he feeling like his face was a little hot now? Wasn't he the braver one?
She supposed talking should be considered easy enough, but for someone like her speaking up wasn't exactly something that she was good at or any sort of communication. Heck, her telling him what she wanted usually ended in her saying a rather confusing sentence that made no sense.
Hearing him agree to the movie, she smiled and nodded at the suggestion of choosing the movie. She searched through the collection to find something that they hadn't seen. It ended up being a movie that was fairly well liked. By the time she had started the movie he was back with the other things and she settled on her little blanket fort. Looking to him, she did wonder if she was supposed to do something. Ultimately, she leaned her head on his shoulder for now. "We don't have any bad movies left. We might need to rewatch them," she mused softly, not that watching a bad movie is was a requirement when they ultimately ended up talking over it anyway. It could be any movie really.
It seemed she had the answers to all her own questions for the most part. He nodded his head a little bit sheepishly once she mentioned just saying, he was sure it would be hard, but no harder than knowing when to move forward with someone who was as shy as she was. He smiled a bit at the suggestion of watching a movie. "Sure, let's do that." He stated and thought a little bit, "I'll grab us some snacks, it's your turn to pick out a movie I think." At the very least, their options were slowly thinning down to only being able to watch movies that people liked, but he doubted that would hold their full attention for long. As normal they would probably chat over them and whatnot. He walked over to her kitchen grabbing them some snacks, making popcorn, bringing out drinks, nothing alcoholic this time, before sitting on her little blanket setup again. It was always so comfy and warm.
Could he blame her? After all, she hadn't expected that he would kiss her, at least not like that. Still, the kiss felt amazing and she was happy with it. What more could she want? There was a slight urge to run, but she mostly kept it at bay, possibly also to him having his arms around her.
Hearing what he said, she looked to him. Of course she knew they were trying this. "I know and we are," she replied, twiddling her hands together a little anxiously, "Like how? Just say it?" Her head tilted, almost as if she was genuinely confused by saying what she truly wanted. He should know that speaking up wasn't her strong suit.
"So... movie?" she asked as she kept looking up at him. A movie was a good go to thing to do, she supposed. That and she didn't know what else to suggest. Naturally, she would make tea and find some food to go with that.
He really couldn't say how it would work in the future, but he'd bring it up after this kiss. The kiss did seem like she was hesitant at first, so he knew how she felt the first night it happened. She did seem to kiss him back finally, and even bring her arms around him. It did feel as strangely tingly and warm as it did the other night after he kept kissing her. It was a long few moments before he slowly moved back and looked at her, his face a little red, but he hoped he answered her question. At the very least she didn't run and hide, yet anyway.
It seemed it did need to be addressed after all, "I don't know..I thought we were trying this.."He explained meaning them as a couple. "I just..I don't wanna mess it up and I don't want to scare you away..I know you are pretty shy..so..maybe help me to know what you want when you..want something.."He supposed it sounded easy enough, and whatever method she could find would be better than nothing.
That was more than fair to point out, even if she wished he didn't. She did feel her face flush slightly at remembering it. She knew though that he didn't mean to hurt her, nor that it was his intention.
Still, she could see the way it dawned on him as they looked at each other. She wondered if he thought her silly. After all, it was hard to compare the two. When he explained she did nod, though wondered, if he was lowering the amount of times something had happened for her sake. She wouldn't put it past him. There was one question that did come to mind thought and she couldn't keep herself from asking, "Then how will this work with us?" It was clear neither of them were truly that forward and able to make the first move.
When he suddenly moved towards her, she didn't know what to expect as he took her hands and she looked to him. Him turning red at looking down at her didn't help her flushing calm down either so they were both red faced. When he did finally kiss her there was a split second urge to run and hide, instinct she supposed before she did slowly begin to kiss him back. His arms going around her was a strange sensation as her own arms slowly and hesitantly moved to wrap around his neck. It did feel really good and made her feel tingly.
He looked to her and he shook his head a bit, "You were drunk.."He pointed out, noting that it was a bad defense. It seemed like he didn't know how to not hurt her, he really didn't want to, but it kept happening. He looked to her curiously as she finally mentioned what was really bugging her. His face began to clear up a bit as they looked at each other in the eyes. He sighed out a little bit, "Ai-chan..didn't have any trouble doing that to me..not that it happened a lot or anything but.."He hoped that explained it, "I wasn't very abrasive or anything.." Once he was allowed to do it, he could, but for the most part he didn't initiate the first kiss or the being close, Ai was just bubbly that way.
He walked up to her regardless and took her hands into his, looking down into her eyes, his face becoming a little red again. This was different without any drinks, but..he wanted her to be happy, and he wanted to see if she made him feel the same thing as when they were drunk. He leaned down, pushing his lips slowly against her's, his arms going around her.
He had said that before, but still... They had kissed before, quite extensively. How could he think that she wouldn't be okay with kissing? She supposed it was just really hard with how things were between them. "But we have kissed before," she pointed out, probably a pretty bad defense. Ironically, it seemed like he had hurt her a little by not doing anything, even if she knew he meant well.
Him asking if that had been all made her blush even more furiously. How was she supposed to explain this? Still... she had promised to be honest to him and not keep secrets. "That... and that you wouldn't have any trouble doing anything with Ai," she told him softly, her face hot. Surely he thought that she was crazy. He was doing so much to reassure her and she could do nothing but say that he clearly wanted to do things with his ex. She found it increasingly hard to look into his eyes.
She seemed to be blushing now too at least, though he didn't know if that helped or hurt the situation right now. His eyes stayed on her's even if she began to waver a bit. He wondered what he was supposed to say, he knew the answer he supposed. "I just..I..you are..shy..so I didn't..I don't know..know if I should..or.."He basically summed it up. He'd said this before, he had no idea how to pace things with her, he didn't want to offend her, he didn't want to rush, he didn't want to go too slow, but he also didn't know how to proceed to make that happen.
His face continued it's red shade as well, his voice not straying far from sounding small, he didn't want to hurt her, but he wasn't confident he knew how to act. "Was that..all you were thinking..? That I didn't want to?" It seemed like that might have been something that didn't quite make up her whole funky attitude about it.
She supposed that it was hard to differentiate everything. At least with having only been dating for a day, but having known each other for so much longer. It made things hard to understand on how to pace things. They knew each other so well and at the same time not at all in this respective.
She was definitely not fine with this. The blush should have told him as much, but still it was hard all this. Apparently once again her words were pretty badly chosen, but she did find herself blushing even more at his words. He did want to kiss her? That made her pause, happy, but confused. She was surprised that he had such a timid reply though. That was usually her speciality, not his.
Her next words made the flush on her cheeks become even darker and more embarrassed. "Then... why don't you?" she asked softly, her eyes barely staying on his. She just couldn't imagine he needed permission from Ai to kiss her. It was a little in the back if her mind for sure.
