>C, Brook
You’re curious about the game she’s working on and from what you can tell she’s close pals with Violet and would be the best person to build inroads between you and the focus of your infatuation.

>Do not let the intrusive thoughts win
After the meowing humiliation of last week, you’re keeping a tight lid on all outbursts and odd behaviors. You do have some boiled beets in your lunch and you wipe your lips clean to make sure you don’t look like a vampire.

“Brook, what’s that game you’re working on in programming class? Also, I never see you doing the assignments during open time either, do you just do them all at home?”

“I took the class last year and the assignments are the same. It’s really just for fun cause I’m friends with the teacher and would rather be in the lab than alone in a free period.” She takes another bite of PB&J. “You good with Python?”

“Yeah, I’ve taken a class before, at my old school.”

“I’ll sit next to you next class and show you what I’m making. If you’re bored I can even share my old homework so you have time to work on what you want too.”

“Ah, it’s okay, I like reviewing the material. I’d love to see your game though.”

You’ve built a good point of contact with Brook! What do you want to do with your free period today?

>C, bonus workout
Inspired by your recent interest in fitness, you decide to check out the school’s gym and exercise equipment. Running is good for cardio and leg endurance, but you want to build some strength. It’s empty, and you look up how to use the machines on your phone.

Two weeks pass. Your first cross country meet is today, and you’ve been feeling great on the track. Even Violet’s been impressed by your improvement, which has been bolstered by your newfound enjoyment of weight training.

Brook is working on a simple adventure game where the player has an inventory and has to use the items they find to solve puzzles and get past obstacles. You’re the main playtester and Brook’s invited you to her house after school to hang out. She has two younger siblings.

Azalea seems to become steadily more stressed as classes and school events pick up, even skipping lunch to work on posters advertising homecoming. Speaking of which, it’s only you, Brook, and Violet at lunch today.

What do you want to talk about?
A. Focus on Brook, discuss the game

You ignore the flutter in your chest and the way your fingers get sweaty around your plastic fork as you turn to Violet, who’s not reading at the table for once and instead staring into space.

“What’s the race going to be like? Is there anything I should do to prepare?”

Brook turns her attention back to her sandwich as Violet blinks and turns her attention to you.

“Carbs the previous night, but it’s too late for that. You’re hydrating and honestly it doesn’t really matter how well you do so don’t get anxious about it. We’ve done practice runs that are 5Ks so you should be used to the distance.”

Violet’s uncaring attitude hurts your feelings a tiny bit. She’s right, but the race is kind of a big deal in your mundane day to day life and you’d like a little bit more enthusiasm.

What do you do for your free period?
A. Work on Warrior’s fanfiction
B. Visit Azalea in the history classroom
C. Work on your college application

>B, see if you can lighten Azalea’s load
You make a silent promise to yourself that you’ll be up front with Violet soon before slinging your bag over your shoulder and heading to the history classroom. Another problem is you don’t know what kind of person Violet likes, if she likes anyone that way. Maybe you should ask Brook what everyone’s dating history is, since you’re pretty good buddies with her now.

Azalea is hunched over her computer, typing an essay on a word document. She has a good two pages written already, which makes you feel guilty about neglecting your own college application.

Azalea looks up when you walk towards her, eyes widening like she’s seeing you for the first time. “You look way buffer than the last time I saw you.”

You shrug self-consciously. “Yeah I’ve been working out.”

“I just had an idea, could you be the homecoming king this year? I’m in charge of finding someone for the role, we always get a girl to do it so it’s not weird or anything. I’ll owe you big time.”

You hate the idea of getting dressed up in front of the entire school, but you want to help Azalea and get in her good books.

I mean... A. Obviously panic first, make the usual excuses, ask about the queen, etc. But like, why not? It's weird but kinda cool to just stumble into such a big high school moment. Also, "king" has a nice ring to it.
No. 1070926 ID: a7a180

Short answer: A.
Long answer: Why is that, why do you think I'd be a good pick, do you know who the homecoming queen will be, and are the stories of shy nerdy girls being picked for homecoming king/queen getting a bucket of blood dumped on their head true?
No. 1070935 ID: cdb7ca

A, but then constantly think about this and wish you did this instead.
No. 1070940 ID: cdb7ca

Also, hasn't it been only a week or so since you started working out? Gains don't happen that fast, so either you are an absolute biological freak (unlikely), or Azalea has been watching you without you realizing it.

Now I may be looking waaay too much into this (but what the hell, this is supposed to be high school), but is she hoping to get to be the queen with you as the king? Sure it is outlandish, but there is a good chance she is planning to be queen given her position and it is kind of out of left field to ask you since you are relatively new...

Could she have a thing for you?

Sure, you may be nerdy, but I mean, you are tall, you are smart, you are pretty, decently built and have some decent sized boobs. Hell, keep up the muscle building and you are well on your way down the path to the amazonian character-build (lets have this rattle around in her head for a bit).

...she might seriously have a thing for you.

>How have you gotten buff in only a week?
It’s been two weeks since you started working out and your arms have some definition, but Azalea must have been watching pretty closely to notice a difference.

This puts you on guard. Does Azalea have a thing for you? Does she want you to be homecoming king because she thinks you’re hot? You don’t think you’ll have a bucket of blood dumped on you or anything, but you’re suspicious of Azalea’s motives.

You bite your lip. “Well…Who’s going to be the homecoming queen?”

Azalea shows you a picture of a girl you don’t recognize. You squint but can’t see anything weird about her.

“I don’t have to do anything with her right? Like, hug her in public or something…”

Azalea gives a radiant grin as she senses your weakening resolve. “You just have to go to the assembly and a soccer game and wave at people.”

You groan softly. Now if you back out you’ll feel bad for Azalea, so there’s nothing to do but press forward.

Azalea now owes you a favor that you can cash in at any time. What do you want to do for your first race today?
A. Run as hard as you can to prove yourself to Violet
B. Run at a comfortable speed and see how well you do
No. 1071031 ID: ad91cf

>A, it’s time to speedrun
You change into your exercise clothes and take the bus with the team to a large field, which has been staked out with cheap plastic cones to show the running path. A couple other buses arrive with unfamiliar students, even some boys.

The girls go first, and you get behind varsity and junior varsity at the starting line. When the countdown finishes, you surge forward immediately, putting all of your power into a fast start.

You can tell you can’t keep up this pace by how your lungs ache and the burning in your calves, but you stay resolutely by Violet’s side for the first mile. She even glances at you in surprise, which makes your heart somehow beat even faster.

As expected, you burn yourself out and fall behind. A few other runners pass you, but you still finish with a personal best time.

While you’re recovering over cold orange slices and a granola bar, Violet taps you on the back.

“Nice run.”

You tear off the sweet fruit flesh and swallow hurriedly. “Y-yeah! It was fun to compete for the first time.”

Violet smiles at you for what you think is the first time. Her bangs are all sweaty from the run and there are matching wet spots under her armpits. She looks beautiful.

Another two weeks pass until the day of the dreaded homecoming assembly arrives. It’s during third period, so you don’t get to relax with your time off like usual. Your mood is not helped by Azalea fussing over you at lunch.

What would you like to say at lunch? Azalea will insert herself into any conversation you’re having with Brook or Violet.

If Azalea is getting involved anyway might as well keep it Homecoming adjacent. Ask the table what they think you'd look good in. Tux with the crown? Dress with a furred cape? Obviously we're pushing for Violets suggestion, though it might need to be compromised with whatever Azalea already has planned.

>Wacky school traditions
Brook perks up when you ask, apparently the seniors have an official supervised winter beach bonfire overnight trip the first week of December. Apart from that, the cross country team does a potluck before the state finals and Azalea mentions that student government has a bunch of inside jokes and traditions.

>Talk about cats
Violet likes fictional cats, so maybe she likes real cats? Brook doesn’t have any pets and neither do you, but you have yet to ask Violet and Azalea.

When you voice your question, Azalea immediately shows you a ton of pictures of her two dogs. You hear Violet mutter that her parents have a cat named Sophie.

>Ask what you get to wear as homecoming king
Azalea shrugs. “We have a basic costume we use every year, with like a black jacket and a fur cape, but if you want to do something else you can look through all of the supplies and see what you like.

You turn to the table at large. “What would you guys like to see?”

“Be an edgy goth.” Brook suggests. “Y’know, get Azalea to do some cool eyeshadow or something.”

“Get a sword.” Violet adds.

These both sound like excellent suggestions. Are there any other special touches you’d like to add to your costume before you go to the assembly?
No. 1071420 ID: 435f13

Epaulets obviously, and one of those tall, cylindrical band hats with the ostrich plume.
No. 1071438 ID: a7a180

Black jacket, fur cape, goth with a sword? Pretty badass, yeah. Get some gold chains, really get into the sacking Rome mindset.

No. 1071446 ID: 1ca80a

Gotta be silver. A merge of the modern and the classic. But hell yeah, this rocks.

But... Couldn't you also use a corsage from a lovely lady? Hidden under the cape of course, close to your heart.

So you'll compensate with @#$%ed-up fashion!

File 169377510545.png - (172.87KB , 800x800 , p29.png )

The costume closet is shared with the school’s theater program, and there’s a limited number of nice items that would be fitting for a king. This does not include any kevlar. You find some basic prop swords, a jacket with those fancy shoulder pad things, matching black pants, a corsage of fake flowers, and some plastic chains that have been spray painted to look silver and gold.

You put everything on, with Azalea helping you arrange all the add-ons. She also does your makeup, which feels vaguely uncomfortable on your face. You’ve never worn makeup before, and when you look in the mirror you hardly recognize yourself.

Azalea pins the crown securely on your head and leads you to the back side of the fieldhouse, where all the student government kids are getting ready for the assembly. People are staring at you and it’s making you feel sick to your stomach. It doesn’t help that the fur cape is making you overheat as well.

What do you do to stay calm during the assembly? Anxiety levels will be based on suggestions.
No. 1071536 ID: 2f7f6e

Ask Azalea if she has any tips for staying calm. Even if her suggestion doesn't help, the reassurance from a friend will.
No. 1071538 ID: 435f13

>Listen to instructions from the faculty
You’ve been told to wait for your cue, which will be some time after the assembly starts since the dance club has put together a routine they’re going to perform first.

>Meow under your breath
Meowing is a known Yuri stress inducer. You become more stressed.

>Roleplay as a regal king who’s above it all
You’re naturally submissive, so it’s hard to get into the mindspace.

>Worry about a potential school shooter
Whenever you’re around a lot of people, you can’t help but wonder if there’s going to be a shooting. You become more stressed. You dry heave a couple times.

You stagger around the mess of students, searching for Azalea. When you find her you tug on her arm like a scared child and hunch to hide your face.

“I don’t think I can do this, I feel like I’m going to throw up.” you mutter.

“Oh, that would be bad.” Azalea looks over her shoulder at where the homecoming queen is ogling you. “There’s a locker room around the corner, take it all off, I’ll take your place.”

Relieved, you follow Azalea’s instructions and hastily change back into your school uniform. Azalea rolls up the cuffs and bottoms of your king outfit and does her hair up in a bun before hurrying back to her government cohort. You sneak away to hide in the library.

You’ve used up Azalea’s favor and feel really bad about letting her down, enough that you start eating lunch in an empty classroom to avoid her. Another two weeks pass like this, putting you well into October.

In programming, Brook deliberately sits next to you one morning and asks why you’ve been avoiding everyone at lunch. How do you answer?
No. 1071783 ID: a7a180

Bad kitty.
Answer that you took on too big a task and didn't prepare properly for it, letting down Azalea.

All of it.
Start sobbing talking about how you feel like you let Azalea down and how that makes you feel terrible and now you feel like you can't face her anymore, and also now that you haven't been sitting with them now you are scared to go back and oh my god what would Violet think of you? You don't think you could keep on living if she hated you because she doesn't know it but she is the world to you and you are just sad and lost and guilty.
No. 1071805 ID: 1ca80a

You lied to Azalea about being able to help her. You didn't mean to but it's not like that matters when all that means is you're so unreliable. And really, if you can't do something you were never suited for in the first place, then how could you ever be relied upon for things you are good at and are consistent with??? Anyway you think you'd cry if you saw her so you have chosen not to.

>Does the school have a skeet shooting club?
No, that sounds cool but you don’t think your generation and slice of socio-economic class is super comfortable around guns.

>Dump the spaghetti
You start sniffling and whimper out a few words about disappointing Azalea and not going through with something you promised to do. Brook sees you crying and takes you by the hand to lead you outside the classroom. As soon as you’re in the hallway you start sobbing and follow Brook outside until she stops to sit at a blank brick wall in relative privacy.

“I-I promised Azalea I would be the homecoming king but I’m usually shy and I got really anxious before the assembly and ch-chickened out. She probably thinks I’m a coward and a liar and unreliable. I can’t go to lunch in case she sees me…”

Brook rubs your back as you cry, which makes your whole body tingle, but you don’t read into it. It’s just nice to have physical contact.

“I should have been ready, she told me everything that would happen and I psyched myself out. I’m so dumb.”

Brook waits for you to settle yourself into nose-blowing and hiccups before she responds. “Azalea feels bad, she thinks she pressured you into it when you weren’t comfortable. She really isn’t mad at you, we all miss you at lunch and want to hang out again.”

“R-really? Even Violet misses me?”

Brook gives you a curious look. “Yeah. You don’t have to come to lunch today but you should come tomorrow.”

Brook is now a trusted confidant. You decide to take her advice and avoid any more stressful social situations today, so you eat lunch in the empty classroom again.

>Can you work on your college application over the weekend?
No, you’re already committed to working out, homework, and hanging out with Brook. You don’t want to burn yourself out by taking on too many tasks at once.

>A, fanfiction
You do some furtive research on your phone since the school’s wifi blocks AO3. There’s a decent amount of the stuff, ranging from short, incomplete drabbles to fics over 100,000 words long. You only know the original series lore, so you read some of the shorter fics and decide that since you’ve never written anything before, you’re well qualified to make this stuff.

What kind of fanfiction do you want to write? You don’t have much time so it’ll be short and you won’t write anything explicit.

>Enemies to lovers shipping of existing characters
You pick the two most prominent characters, Fireheart and Tigerclaw, and set the fic before Tigerclaw tries to kill Bluestar. Your mind is instantly abuzz with ideas of romance and budding mutual admiration. It helps that it’s yaoi, which is inherently pleasing to your teenage girl brain.

With a new project to focus on, you return to lunch the following day and talk things out with Azalea, who’s just happy she didn’t permanently traumatize you.

You finish the first chapter of your fic after a couple days, make an account, and post it online. At first you’re terrified that people will hate it, or that your writing sucks and you’ll get mean comments, but you ultimately only get a handful of views and a couple kudos.

You keep working steadily during your free periods, alternating between exercising in the weight room and coming up with plot and dialogue on the library computers. As you keep posting, you get your first comment and more views, which is a unique thrill.

Another two weeks pass in the honeymoon period of internet acknowledgement. There’s a cross country race on Halloween, which is on a Tuesday this year. Azalea arrives at lunch dressed up like a Barbie, but the rest of you are in your usual clothes.

>Compliment Azalea on her costume and ask if she’s interested in Warriors at all
You’re seriously impressed that she’s incorporated the costume into her required school uniform, which is the opposite color of bubblegum pink. Azalea has never read Warriors but admits she has a soft spot for the My Little Pony show.

>Tell Violet about your fic
You pull up your fic on your phone, hand sweaty, and show Violet. Her eyes get wide and she takes your phone to scroll through the first chapter.

“Tigerclaw and Fireheart? That’s pretty cool, I like the way you’re spacing out your paragraphs and stuff.” Violet hands back your phone. “I mostly look up fanart and animations but I read stuff too.”

>Ask Violet to go trick or treating tonight
“A-after the race, do you want to dress up and go trick or treating tonight? We can go early since it gets dark so soon, Brook and Azalea, you can come too.”

Brook shakes her head. “I’m going with my younger siblings.”

“I’m going to a party.” Azalea adds. “There’s probably going to be booze but I’m not going to stay late or drink since there’s school tomorrow.”

“It can just be us.” you tell Violet hastily. “I can go to your neighborhood or you can come to mine.”

Violet thinks for a moment before nodding. “Let’s go to mine, I’ll tell you my address. We’ll need to dress up. I’ll read your fic before we meet up so we can talk about it.”

Your heart is thumping in your chest as you leave to work on your fic during your free period. You’ve done it! You’re going to hang out with Violet outside of practice and school!

The race goes well, you’ve about plateaued with your racing speed, which puts you as the fastest junior varsity runner, though you still can’t keep up with Violet’s pace for the whole 5K. You’re satisfied and celebrate with the team while your brain churns with ideas for your Halloween costume.

What do you dress up as? Violet is keeping her costume a secret.

You’re more of a tomboy, so skintight suits and sleeveless tops aren’t your thing.

>Dress up as a king again
When you were preparing for homecoming you did get a lot of stares that at the time you didn’t recognize as awe. A quick text to Azalea and she arranges a supply dropoff at your house.

After dinner you put on the familiar garments and stare at yourself in the mirror. Without the makeup, you don’t look as impressive, but your furred cape and sword are still rad.

You tell your parents where you’re going then drive to the south side of town to meet Violet. She lives in a townhouse and emerges from the gate dressed as a traditional witch. Your stomach flips over when she gives you an admiring look, and you trail after her as she leads the way to the best trick or treating streets.

You have an uninterrupted moment to talk to Violet. What do you say to her?
A. Ask to hang out after school more
B. Talk about your fic
C. Confess your crush

Holy shit what if someone recognizes you from homecoming in that costume!?
No. 1072645 ID: 273c18

Would that be so bad? There aren't nearly as many people around, and there's no pressure to put on a show or anything.

Anyway, C.

C, confess your crush, but do it in a super awkward roundabout analogy involving cats.
No. 1072682 ID: 5d8541

A! Even if today was the day you can't confess before the trick or treating. That could make the whole date awkward. Maaaybe if the mood is right before the night is over.

>A/C combo for maximum speed
You want to spend more time with Violet and you want her to know you have feelings for her before you spend more time with her. At this point you’re familiar with each other and it doesn’t seem weird to say you like her. She might not like you back, but then you can never speak of it again and everything will be fine.

You take a big breath. This isn’t like the homecoming incident. It’s just you and Violet and Violet is cool and chill and probably not homophobic.

You stop walking and Violet turns around to see why.

“Hey, can I talk about something kind of serious?” you ask.

“Yeah go for it.”

“I’ve had a crush on you for a while and if that’s not okay then I’ll stop trying to hang out and get you to like me and stuff but if it’s okay could we go on a date sometime or something?”

Violet cocks her head. “You’ve been trying to get me to like you?”

“Y’know, with reading Warriors and doing cross country. Well, I started doing those because you like them but I also like them, I’m not forcing myself to do anything I don’t want to do.” You fiddle with the hilt of the prop sword. “I’m new to this kind of thing. And I like girls.”

Violet nods. “Liking girls is where it’s at. Brook and Azalea are gay too.”

“That’s kind of a weird coincidence.”

“Naw, queers clump together like crazy. Yeah, let’s go on a date sometime, unless you run away from trick or treating like you did at homecoming.”

You turn bright red and Violet hastily backtracks. “Just teasing! I tease sometimes, sorry, that one was mean. Also, I’ll catch you if you run, since I’m still faster.”

You snort a little. You didn’t know Violet had a sense of humor.

You ask more about Violet while collecting candy, and learn that she has an older brother and is having a hard time in Precalculus. She’s curious about how you got your name and what your life was like before you moved.

Between practice and schoolwork, your first official date with Violet is set for mid November. Violet gets your permission to tell Azalea and Brook about your confession, which makes them fawn over you for several days at lunch.

What do you propose for your first first date ever?

Suddenly Violet realizes the lunar thaumaturgy controlled surge was today and she starts panicking and then she transforms into a giant puma and you orgasm on the spot.

Oh, we can actually combine ideas again: witch-themed cat cafe!!! It's still close enough to Halloween that maybe somewhere hasn't switched to Christmas themes lol

Yeah, cat cafe. Or if she's allergic, a park picnic?

>Go to a cat cafe! Maybe they’ll still have spooky decor
You drive to school that day so you can take Violet to the cafe in your car after running practice. You each buy a hot chocolate and try to coax the overworked cats into petting range.

>Decor check: Success
The cafe still has plastic skeletons and mini pumpkins everywhere, which is in excellent taste.

>Violet allergy resistance check: Success
>Yuri allergy resistance check: Failure
You’ve never had pets, so you’re surprised to find your nose running and eyes itching the longer you stay in the room where every surface is saturated with cat hair. Violet isn’t affected, and she watches with concern as you blow your nose into a handful of napkins. You insist that it’s not bad and you want to stay.

What do you talk to Violet about?
No. 1072876 ID: 435f13

Ask her whether she believes cats can communicate with each other and wonder what the cats are saying about you. Ripple fade into a Doug style imagination sequence where you fantasize about the cat conversation.
No. 1072880 ID: e5709d

Uh... maybe you should eat outside.
Seriously it would be kind of stupid to die of a cat allergy.

Talk about the many types of cats - then shift over to the possibility of breeding a hypoallergenic cat and getting one of those.

>Move outside
You’re still both in your running clothes and it’s a crisp late fall day in the northeastern US. If you go outside you’ll freeze! You have to endure for the sake of the date, it’s not like you’re dying, you’re just dribbling snot everywhere. Girls love that.

>Talk about cats
You clear your sinuses with a resounding snort and put your elbow on the table. “So do you think cats can really talk to each other like in the Warriors books?”

“I bet they can. With like, meowing and stuff.”

“What do you think these ones are saying to each other about us?”

Violet contemplates the surrounding creatures. “Maybe they’re wondering what kind of life they would have with us.”

She glances at your damp upper lip. “You might not want a cat if you have allergies this bad.”

“Yeah, probably not.” you laugh.

“You could get one of those hypoallergenic ones, y’know, where they don’t have any fur.”

You both lapse into dignified silence and finish your hot chocolates. Afterwards you crouch on the floor next to Violet while she dangles a feather on a string in front of the few cats too lazy to walk away.

You both enjoyed the date. Being introverts, it helped to have something else to focus on instead of trying to maintain a conversation the whole time.

That weekend you go on another date to the nearest animal shelter and admire all of the cats up for adoption. Violet even holds your hand!

The excitement of being in a relationship is so strong that it takes you a couple weeks to remember you need to submit a college application before the end of the year. You need to think of a topic for the 1,000 word essay. What should you write about?

Write about the challenges of transferring schools and how you overcame them with the help of your friends. College admissions love stories like that, and it's just the right mix of generic and unique that you don't need to put too much effort into it to make it good enough.
No. 1072887 ID: e5709d

Discuss your initial drive with being 'the smartest' and how it you found it was necessary to your long-term goals but wasn't fulfilling, and then 'got distracted' with real life goals, like dating, fanfiction, and flopping at being the Prom Regent. And then discovered that you managed to be competently academic while feeling happier about your life and your willingness to try even more things that the world has to offer.

Emphasize that while you believe intelligence is the most important part of a career, sacrificing everything in life to be 'the smartest' doesn't make you feel all that smart. This should deter all the colleges that have great funding but love encouraging sociopathy and zero-sum competition.

You invest in some Allegra pills, which do wonders for your cat hair sensitivity.

>Write about the challenges you’ve faced from moving and changing schools, and how you’ve grown by both recognizing your limits and going outside your comfort zone
>Emphasize how you overcame adversity with the help of your new friends
You’re only applying to the local state university which means you don’t have to write a great essay, just one that adheres to the basic standards of the English language. You bang out the first draft in a single free period thanks to your fanfiction honed writing skills, and meet with Azalea the next day to review.

Azalea, having survived the gauntlet of early action applications, is more than happy to proofread your essay.

“Hey I remember when you said that thing about getting taller on your first day! And the part about backing out from being homecoming king was super pithy. There was one part where the tense was weird but other than that it was good.”

She closes her laptop and gives you a smirk. “So how are things going with Violet? Any plans for the beach bonfire?”

You puff up your chest. “We’ve held hands and our dates are going great. We’re both planning to go to the bonfire.”

“Holding hands is good, have you tried asking for a kiss? Kissing on the beach would be really romantic.”

You wrinkle your nose. You’re a private person and shy and don’t really know how to go about asking Violet to kiss. You’d like to kiss Violet eventually, of course.

Final choice:
A. Ask Azalea for advice
B. Concoct your own plan to kiss Violet (suggest)
C. Kissing can wait, more handholding is where it’s at
No. 1072955 ID: e5709d

C) Do the handholding thing where she eventually guides your hands to her breasts and then you go nuts

>A, also ask Azalea if there’s someone she wants to kiss
Azalea smirk grows even more pronounced, to the point of instilling fear in your heart. “I’ll actually be doing some kissing of my own at the beach party.”

“Huh? Who’ve you been kissing?” you squawk.

“Brook, of course! Haven’t you seen us be all moony over each other during math class? We didn’t want to make it a big deal since you and Violet just started dating and we didn’t want it to seem like we were one-upping you.”

You hadn’t noticed a thing out of the ordinary. You thought Azalea was being her usual friendly self and you are going to have a stern talk with Brook about how she should have told you.

“Okay, how do you think I should ask Violet to kiss then?”

Azalea takes a deep breath. “You take her hands, look her in the eye, and ask if she wants to try kissing. It’s going to be awkward at first but don’t take yourself too seriously and keep trying. Then you’ll both get better at it! Since you’re tall it might be easier to do it sitting.”

>One week later…
On the day of the bonfire, you mull over Azalea’s advice on the bus ride to the beach. Violet is sitting next to you, looking out the window at the light snowfall. You’re both wearing big puffy jackets and her left hand is in your right pocket. Once the bus arrives and you both disembark and wander around in the sand, within the acceptable confines of the teacher chaperones.

There’s no good place to sit! The rocks are cold and the sand is just as bad. You pace back and forth, dragging Violet along with you, desperate to find a way to have a proper first kiss.

Eventually Violet tugs at your hand to get you to stop. “You looking for sand dollars or something? We don’t want to miss out on the snacks and the fire.”

She’s wearing a big wooly hat with earflaps and her cheeks are red from the cold air. You clasp her mittens between your hands.

“Do you want to try kissing?”

Violet smiles at you and hooks her arms around your waist. “Yeah Yuri. Kneel down a bit so I can reach your pretty face.”

You sort of do a wide stance squat in the sand so you’re level with Violet. She brushes your bangs out of your eyes and plants a quick peck on your lips.

There aren’t any sparks or fireworks going off, but it’s very nice. You get a lot of practice kissing that evening.

Thanks for reading!
