“Hey (Y/N), can I talk to you for a moment?” You stood up straight, looking over at the princess.
“Yeah, sure,” you replied before turning to your customers. “I’ll be back in a minute, my dears~” You hummed, blowing a kiss to them before bouncing after Elizabeth. “What’s up?”
“I don’t think Sir Ban is okay with you flirting with everyone like that,” she explained nervously.
“Hm? What makes you think that?” You tilted your head to the side slightly, confused. Sure, you and him were good friends, but you didn’t think he’d be jealous over anything.
“Well, he broke a spatula just a moment ago when you were talking to those men.” You blinked. “Even Meliodas has noticed that he’s been frustrated lately.”
“Oh dear. I better talk to him. Cover me?” You grinned sheepishly. She nodded, and you called out to Meliodas. “Hey boss, me and Ban are taking a step out for a minute! That okay?”
“Sure, be back soon though!” He called back, and you motioned for your friend to follow you out the back.
“Ban, is everything okay?” You asked, leaning against the Boar Hat with him.
“Everything’s fine, why?” He even sounded irritated. Now you really felt bad.
“You seem frustrated. Come on, what’s wrong?” You sighed, standing in front of him and taking one of his hands in both of yours. “Please tell me.” You lowered your voice, gently squeezing his hand.
“It’s just…” He sighed, shifting slightly. “I don’t like you flirting with everyone. Before you became a waitress, we always talked. You always talked to me when I was cooking. Now we don’t talk aymore, you’re always busy with the customers.”
“Oh, Ban.” You smiled, shaking your head. “You could’ve just told me. You know my flirting is all for the tavern, right?” He blanked, making you laugh. “Dear, if you want, I can flirt with you too. That way you won’t feel left out.” You could see his cheeks light up, causing you to laugh more. “I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Trust me, Ban, I have no feelings for anyone who comes to the tavern.”
“If you’re sure…” He grabbed your hands with his free one.
“I am, I promise,” you replied, tugging his hands down slightly. You kissed his cheek, pulling away and smiling. “Hey, to make it up to you, why don’t we go to that dance later this week? Together?”
“Really? You want to go to that?” he asked, eyes wide. You giggled, nodding.
“If you’ll go with me,” you said, blushing slightly. “Come on, please? I won’t drag you to it, but it’d be great if you went.”
“Well, any chance to see you in a cute dress,” he replied, smiling and placing his hands on your waist. You laughed, placing your hand on his shoulders.
“Come on, we better get inside. Meliodas will expect us back soon,” you suggested, trying to take a small step back. He squeezed your hips slightly, making you jump. “Come on, babe.” You couldn’t help the grin spreading across your face. “We’ll talk about this later.”
“Yeah, you’re right.” Ban sighed, pulling you towards him. You laughed, rolling your eyes. He placed a kiss on your forehead before letting go of you. “Let’s go back in.” You nodded, letting him pull you inside.
8. Who have you harbored (any kind of!) secret feelings towards?
well its not secret aymore bt i love my qpp… and i had some opinions abt a certain person i dont talk to anymore, also a platonic crush on ruby whos not on the site anymore
@split-at-the-seems Round my way, they’ve stopped cleaning or maintaining shit altogether more or less, then they’ve recruited child labour from the local primaries to do litter picking (!!) and then bragged about it in their monthly vanity project/newsletter (!!!!!) #guillotine
Yeah that’s a familiar story, relying on free labour to do something you pay your council tax for. We don’t see any street sweepers aymore. They were only ever a once in a blue moon thing but now they’ve completely gone. They’re letting the poor areas go to shit while the posh avenues and suburbs are maintained. Some tory towns have actually seen spending on this stuff increased. They’re all immune to the tory’s class war.
