Dean sets his sparkling hazel eyes on your curvaceous form as you move across the grass in his backyard. He watches you interrupt Mikey and Drew’s game of catch to see if the boys want something to drink.
Even though it’s a totally mundane task, the older Winchester can’t help but be mesmerized by it. How do you manage to make even the simplest things look sexy as hell?
“Dude.” Sam’s amused tone catches his brother’s attention. “If you keep drooling like that you’ll need a bib.”
“What?” Dean immediately wipes his mouth with his forearm, now feeling self conscious and it makes Sam howl.
“Get it together, man. Y/N’s a good one. Don’t close the door before you even open it, ya know?”
“Huh?” Dean unwillingly peels his eyes away from you.
“Don’t fuck it up.” Sam stresses resisting the urge to slap some sense into him.
“Jughead?” you laughed as you opened your window. Jughead was perched on a ladder, and you looked below to see a box of tools at the bottom. “What are you doing?”
“Look around, y/n.” Jughead grinned, gesturing behind him at your background. You looked past him, and gasped slightly when you realised had put together a mini drive-in theatre. Looking over his shoulder to admire his work, Jughead gave you a nudge. “I know you’re just as disappointed as I am that the theatre is closing, so I thought maybe we could watch movies in your backyard instead?”
“Yes!” you replied enthusiastically, clapping your hands together. “I would love that.”

Chapter 10: Happiness
she said without looking up from her book
“What? I’m not doing anything” he said
“You’re staring at me” she said
“Well, it’s not my fault that you’re so beautiful”
She rolled her eyes and looked at him. He was
smiling at her fondly and her heart skipped at beat.
They were in the living room of her house. She
was laying on one of the couches reading a book while he sat on the floor
leaning against the other couch. He was supposed to be preparing some stuff for
his kids from the kindergarten but he had actually been just looking at her for
15 minutes now.
Since she was a little girl Sana had always
wished that one day she could have what her parents had. She would see them
spending time in silence, a comfortable familiar silence and it was like they
didn’t need anything else. They didn’t need to talk, they didn’t need to touch,
just knowing that the other person, the love of their lives, was in the same
room was enough to make them feel happy. She had always wanted that, be with
someone who she could enjoy even in the silent moments.
And now she had that with Yousef.
They had been dating for three months now and
every day was better than the previous one. She felt so grateful that after all
these months she could still feel the butterflies on her stomach every time she
looked at him, every day she fell more and more in love with him and she didn’t
want it to stop.
“You’re bored, aren’t you?” she asked
“No, I’m enjoying myself a lot actually” he said with a big smile
“Really? You don’t think this is boring?”
“Hey” he whispered standing up and walking to her.
He crouched in front of her and looked at her
“I enjoy every moment I spend with you, okay?
And I really like being here with you, in silence. Is…” he paused for a moment looking for
the right word “heartwarming, familiar, pleasing”
She smiled at him and looked into his eyes,
getting lost for a moment. How could that boy mean so much to her? How could he
always know the right thing to say? Sometimes her feelings for him were so
overwhelming, she never thought she would feel something like this.
He noticed her staring and raised an eyebrow
playfully. She shook her head and blushed trying to focus.
“Okay, I need some air” she said standing up
“Aww, did you just blush? How cute?” he teased her
She glared at him and all he could do was laugh.
“Fine, smartass, let’s go, I feel like kicking
your ass at basketball now” she said marching to the backyard
When she thought about it, that was probably
what she liked more about their relationship, the fact that they could go from
spending time together in silence to just being kids playing basketball and
both scenarios felt as good as the other one.
They had been playing for awhile but their
basketball match had derived into a new game. They had completely forgotten
about the basket now and they were just chasing each other trying to take the
ball away from the other one.
Sana had the ball now and she kept bouncing it
as she run from Yousef. He chased her and tried to catch the ball but she was
really good at blocking his moves. But she wasn’t counting on Yousef’s arms
being way longer than hers. He stood behind her and put his arms around hers
blocking her moves with a hug, her back against his chest.
“That’s cheating!” she whined
“That’s clever, it’s not my fault you’re so
said taking the ball away from her and throwing it away “Besides, I really wanted to hug
you” he whispered in her ear
She laughed and turned around in his arms to
face him resting her hands against his chest, his arms wrapped around her
“You’re so sappy” she chuckled
He smiled at her, his eyes never leaving hers.
It felt like he was considering whether he was going to say what he had in mind
or not. She noticed it and widened her eyes a little
“What?” she laughed
“I love you” he almost whispered
She opened her mouth in shock. There they were,
the three dreaded words. She blinked several times, trying to process his
“Don’t panick” he said squeezing her a little and chuckling “I’m
not expecting you to say it back but I just needed to tell you that I love you”
She bit her lip and took a deep breath,
thinking about her next move. She then put her hands on his shoulders and stood
on tip toes a little bit so she could reach the spot she wanted to reach. She
then leaned in and pressed her lips softly against his cheek. She heard him
gasp as soon as her lips touched his skin, she could feel him holding his
breath. She pulled away as slowly as she could, going back to her original
position. She couldn’t help but smile when she saw his expression, his eyes
widened, his mouth slightly opened.
“Now you’re the one who’s blushing” she chuckled, then her smile faded
and she look at his eyes intensely “I love you too Yousef”
The smile he showed her after that was the
biggest smile she had ever seen and all she could do was match her smile with
his. Suddenly he held her tighter and lifted her off the floor twirling her
around. She squealed a little in surprise
“I’m the happiest boy alive!!!!” he shouted being the extra boy he
She wrapped her arms around his neck trying not
to fall and laughed loudly. She held on tight to him, now that she knew what
real happiness felt like, she wasn’t letting go of it.
Hey! I love your stories and I have a prompt for you. Sana and Yousef play basketball and because it is such a nice game where they have to be very close to each other, at some point Yousef will be behind Sana and will try to take the ball but because he is so close + feelings he forget about the game and hug her and then I don’t know… thank you so much for all the beautiful work!”
Is it okay to send you a future Yousana prompt? Don’t worry take all the time you need… prompt: the first time they say “I love you”…”
Hey! I decided to send you a prompt even though I know you already have others to write, this is just something that’s been on my mind a lot lately… “the moment after Yousana shares their first kiss, thoughts words and emotions” thanks in advance, I can’t wait to read it!”
I know this is probably not what you had in mind, especially the kiss but I just don’t feel comfortable writing a yousana kiss before marriage since we don’t know where both Sana and Iman stand regarding that and I respect them both so much so I’m sorry if this disappoints you.
How Exo (O12) Would React To You Being Pregnant With Twin Girls
Author’s note: Sis, I tried. I’ll get better at these I promise! I hope you enjoy anon! If there’s anything I did wrong, please let me know so I can improve.
After months of trying to get pregnant, Minseok would be more than pleased to find out that the two of you had been blessed two times over. He would probably being phoning up the other members to share the good news of him becoming a parent to two little girls, mostly bragging 24/7 to them though.
“You want a drink?” You ask as Shadow walks back into the house. You had made yourself at home behind Ostara’s bar, seeing as how almost everyone had left, she probably wouldn’t mind too much.
Shadow still looked a little shocked from the previous events, so you figured one should stay calm to prevent total chaos. Not that you weren’t surprised yourself, it wasn’t every day that you saw Odin himself summon a storm in the backyard.
You hand him a glass, smiling as he drinks it in one go, “You want another?”
He takes a deep breath, looking at your calm face, smiling at him like nothing in the world was wrong and you hadn’t just seen the same thing as he had, “ This is why I fell in love with you. ”
“Hey, Tommy!” The door burst open, making both of us jump. “Oh shit, did we interrupted something?” Yes, you both did! I looked at Tom he was blushing just like I was, ‘sorry’ he mouths.
“Sam, Harry, good seeing you guys,” the twin brothers, Tom hugs both of them
“Well, shit man, you’ve gotten ripped!” I was the awkward person sitting down on the bed.
“Dude, are you going to be rude and not introduce us to your girlfriend,” the curly haired spoke, I saw Tom’s cheeks turning red.
“This is Kamryn Redeveen, she lives next house. Kamryn, these are my older twin brothers, Sam,” he points to his left, the kid with less curly hair smiled “And Harry” the one with more curls smiled widely and waved.
“So Kamryn, is there a nickname we can call you?” I was in between the twins.
“Kam or Kammy,” I looked up at Tom, he was covering his face probably of embarrassment or annoyance.
“Guys seriously!” His voice cracked at the end.
“I know we ruined your little moment that was going on, it was nice meeting you Kam, hopefully we see you around more often,” Harry got up slightly laughing.
“You two continue what you were doing,but don’t go too far, if you know what I mean” Sam winks at Tom’s direction.
“Get out!” Tom slams the door.
“I am sorry about them”
“It’s okay, I bet you want to spend time with them”
“No! I mean, it’s okay, mum told me they were staying for a week”
“Hey I am always around and they are in the University, spend time with them. I’ll talk to you some other day,” he finally agreed and we both walked downstairs. They all went quiet. “Bye,” I waved at all of them as they said their byes too. Tom went outside with me.
“I’ll walk you home”
“You do realize I live a couple feet away”
“Yeah, but I like spending time with you,” he lets out a chuckle “Maybe we can talk tonight- if you want, I’m not expecting you to but like I-” I cut him off
“I’d love to,” we reached my door. “Well, I’ll see you tonight them”
“Yeah, yeah definitely for sure,” I smiled and opened the door.
“Alright Thomas, go spend time with your family”
“Bye,” I closed the door and smiled. That was so awkward. I went up to my room and lied on my bed. We were so close on kissing but his brothers had to interrupt. I heard laughing and yelling over at Tom’s house.
“Guys seriously just shut up!” I heard Tom’s voice. Both our windows were open, I quickly went on the floor sitting by the window.
“Harry and I saw the way you two were about to kiss”
“Guys, she seriously has her room right across from mine, can you both shut the fuck up!”
“She’s not in her room, geez Thomas, you have a full view of her room,” I covered my mouth.
“Aye, Tommy, of course you seem to like her, she pretty hot,” I couldn’t tell whose voice was it but for sure it was one of the twins.
“Nope, we are not having this conversation”
“Common Tom, Sam and I got to hear it from mum, and now it’s your turn to hear it from us, you’re a teenager with hormones, she’s a hot teenager with hormones, it’s bound to happen at some point”
“Guys, I love you and everything but you two should shut the fuck up”
“Listen mate, if you like her, ask her out, she likes you too”
“Oh my gosh! Do you guys to know who her dad is! It’s Andrew”
“So, what’s your point”
“I can’t do that to him, he’s extremely nice on helping me out and go making out with his daughter, he will drop everything for both his daughters”
“I think that’s totally shitty and you’re just a wimp to ask her out”
“You’re not listening on what I’m saying!”
“Sam and I are, but you’re excuses are shit”
“We barely know each other”
“Good excuse to ask her on a date”
“Harry, I can’t go out in public with her, everyone believes I- I can’t ruin her life because of me”
“Tom, who-” My phone started to ring from my bed. Oh shit.
“Shit she was in her room!” I crawled out of my room thanking myself for leaving the door open. I got up and casually walked inside. I grabbed my phone and saw who was calling me.
I looked at the time, it was three in the afternoon, pressed the green button.
“Hello is this Kamryn Redeveen?”
“We would like to inform you that Kennedy Redeveen is still at school waiting for someone to pick her up”
“Oh my gosh, okay I am on my way” I walked out of my room and went down the stairs. Did he forget to pick her up? He squally picks her up when he’s on his break. I got in the car and started to drive down to the pre-school.
I walked through the doors of the school and into the front office. This is so embarrassing.
“Hi, came to pick up Kennedy Redeveen” I showed the front lady at the office my ID. She picked up the phone and called someone.
“Kennedy’s sister is here,” I walked out of the office, waiting for Kenny to appear. I saw her small figure turning the corner, she seemed upset.
“Hey Kenny, I’m here” I gave her a hug. Her cheeks were wet from crying. “Hey you’re okay, we are going home and you can ride your bike outside, deal?” She nods her head.
“Okay Kenny, we arrived, get your safety on and your bike. I’ll be waiting for you outside,” she quickly went inside the house and I got out of the car.
“Hey Kam,” I looked over to whoever was calling me, I saw that twins outside with a blushing Tom, as he always seems to be blushing for everything.
“Hey guys,” I walked over to the garage opening the door. Kenny was already on her bike.
“TOM!” She yelled in excitement
“Hey Kenny, I’m here to watch you use your bike,” she started to pedal, Tom followed after her.
“Alright, he’s out of the way now. Time to ask you a couple of questions. If that’s okay with you”
“Sure, why not” we sat on the sidewalk. I was in between the twins once again.
“So, what’s really going on between Tommy and you”
“Sam, you can’t just go straight into that question yet,” Sam was on my left while Harry was on my right. “So, how long have been talking with Tom”
“Just a couple days”
“You’re such an idiot Harry, Tom arrived here what Saturday”
“Shut up, anyways, who told you about his past”
“One of my friends, she was telling me about it”
“Did you believed it,” I looked at Sam
“Not really, it didn’t make sense and it doesn’t add up”
“You’re really nice person, just like your father, has Tom mention how he’s trying to fix a mess he never started,” Harry’s voice sounded upset
“I have a clue on what they are all working on. I read a couple of papers my dad had in his bag”
“You know most of the things now, Harry and I wanted to work on it as well but mum wanted us to go off to the uni and study, while she sent Tom over to- do you know Tony Stark”
“Sam you are such a moron, of course she does. Her father works for him”
“Ignoring your rude ass comment. Well, Mr.Stark allowed Tom to stay over at his place for years, and for sure Mr.Stark made Tom work out mostly everyday. We tried to visit him but they didn’t let us”
“We kept going at least for his birthday but we always got denied, but I’m kinda glad, they were making him become a stronger independent young teenager”
“Horny teenager,” Harry mumbles but it was loud enough for both Sam and I to hear.
“Anyways,” I looked over at Sam, he was glaring at Harry. “Would you go on a date with Tom if he asks you”
“Yeah why not,” they were both surprised
“I thought you were going to say ‘nah, I’m just not feeling it with him’ like I mean we almost caught you two kissin’ and be glad we interrupted because what if nothing else would’ve happened,” Sam elbows me
“Common Sam, you’re embarrassing her”
“Hey Tom, how’s it going,” his smile leaves his face once he saw the twins sitting next to me. He glares at both of them.
“Great,” I wasn’t sure if he was being sarcastic or not.
“Go on a date with Tom Friday at seven, in the backyard”
“Harry you can’t just ask her like that. Tom will ask you to go on a date this Friday, it’s your decision to say yes or no”
“Do you have a boyfriend”
“Or girlfriend we went judge,” Harry quickly added
“I don’t have a boyfriend, I’ve had one but it wasn’t serious”
“Alright playtime is over,” we saw Tom standing in front of us. I got up and went over over to Kenny.
“Let’s go inside Kenny, I’m hungry,” we walked back to the garage, the twins left leaving Tom sitting on his own. “You okay”
“Just my brothers trying to embarrass me”
“I can tell, they are quite funny”
“They are annoying,” we both went Inside as Kenny went to clean herself up.
“Ummh- so, I want to get to know you better, and I was wondering if I could take you on a date, or at least a dinner in my backyard”
“I mean if you want I’m- what, you said yes”
“Yeah, why not”
“Great, that’s totally great,” my phone starts to ring, Natalie.
“Hey Nat whaddup”
“Where were you”
“I slept in, my alarm went off but i didn’t hear it”
“Do you want to hang out”
“I have to babysit Kenny”
“Okay, that’s alright. Maybe next time then”
“Yeah for sure”
I wasn’t telling her a lie. I seriously needed to babysit Kenny. She’s probably going to come over anyways. There was a knock on the door.
“Natalie,” I whispered to Tom. “She can’t know I’m talking to you”
“I’ll leave through the back,” he slowly opens the back door making sure he doesn’t make a noise. I slowly walk towards the door and heard another knock. I opened the door and see Natalie standing there
“Hey,” I wasn’t sure if he made it out or not.
“School was so boring without you, like common. You only had two classes today”
“I stayed up late last night doing my homework”
“So, want to hang out on Friday, the new movie goes out Thursday, but I want to see it Friday”
“I have to babysit Kenny. My dad called saying he was going to be coming out later this whole week”
“Ah man, but please come to school tomorrow”
“I am,” I heard small feet walking down the stairs.
“I better get going it’s getting late”
“I’ll see you at school tomorrow,” I waved at her and she left.
“I don’t like her”
“She looks mean”
“You need to go to bed,” we both walked upstairs.
“Get into your pj and brush your teeth” she searched for pj in her drawer and went to the bathroom to change. After a good five minutes she was laying in bed. “Night”
“Night,” I closed her door and went to my room. I looked at my phone to check the time, nine thirty, I set it down on my bed. I grabbed my undergarments and went to my bathroom to shower.
I wrapped the towel around my body and walked to my room, I opened my drawer and grabbed my sleeping shorts and shirt. I tried drying my hair with the towel and letting it air dry. I looked out my window seeing that it was open. I could feel the heat rise to my cheeks, how embarrassing. His lights were off, he probably wasn’t there. I sit on my bed and go through my phone.
prompt: okay step aside and let me handle the barbeque before you burn my dinner to a crisp thank u very much
“He’s going to burn it,” Lily whispers.
“Shut up.” Marlene hisses back.
“Oh my god. We’re going to spend the night eating badly burned sausages and then get, like, I don’t know. Can you die from the black parts? I know my taste buds definitely will.” Lily leans back against the chair in defeat. “This is some sick joke.”
“What’s a sick joke?” Sirius pipes up from across the table, detouring from his literal (burnt) sausage fight with Peter.
“Nothing.” Marlene says. “Be quiet.”
Sirius holds up his (burnt) sausage and takes a generous bite. “If there’s a joke to be told…” He raises both brows, looking to Peter for affirmation. He nods solemnly in solidarity with his fellow Marauder.
“Is this some kind of flirting tactic on Potter’s behalf?” Lily asks, straightening up. “Poisoning me with burnt sausages and the only antidote is his kiss?”
“No. Why on Earth would he do that?”
“Because he’s in love with me.” She finishes innocently.
“Alright, I’m hungry,” Marlene stands up rapidly, “anyone else hungry? I tried the chips earlier. They were good. Salt and vinegar.”
“No, no,” Sirius says, “let’s hear what Evans has to say. How do you know Prongs is in love with you?”
Lily manages to shoot him a filthy look. “As if you don’t already know. There’s no way you didn’t have a hand in this.” Her gaze drops to the sausage in his hand that’s one bite away from being finished. Sirius has this weird kind of faith in everything James Potter does, and to be honest, it’s beginning to scare Lily. It’s a mix of reckless abandon and confidence, and the only possible positive outcome is a marriage proposal. At worst, it’s a trip to the morgue.
Companions Reaction to Sole getting sick? (Like nothing deadly just like a bad cold or something like that)
As you wish sweetheart! Here’s poor Sole, sick as a dog for you (´◕ω◕`)
Preston: Sole and
Preston began cleaning themselves up in Hangman’s Alley after a particularly
messy brawl with some raiders. The narrow backstreets forced the two to engage
in close-combat, which neither of them cared for, and Sole ended up with
foreign blood in several of their cuts. A few days later, Sole began coughing
uncontrollably and had difficulty breathing. Even so, Sole brushed it off as a
cold and refused to rest with so much work left to be done on the settlements,
much to Preston’s chagrin.
Preston finally had enough when Sole coughs hard enough to
slam their head into the workbench they were hunching over. WHAM! “Uuuuugh…”
Preston gives Sole a sideways glare, “General, it’s time for you to rest. No
exceptions.” Sole groans, but ignores him and continues working. “Well then, if
you want to do it the hard way, don’t say I didn’t warn you.” Preston then
heaved Sole up from their perch on the stool, carried them to a bed, and
flopped them down on it. He points his finger at them, “Stay.”
Later he brings them some of his famous squirrel stew, a few
extra blankets, and even a teddy bear he found laying around. “Don’t patronize
me Preston!” Sole glares at the minuteman, but he just chuckles. Preston
finished his visit by attentively tucking Sole in and patted them on the head
as he left. He chose to ignore Sole’s ranting about insubordination.
During the night Preston revisited Sole to make sure they
were still alright. He walked over and softly grazed the back of his knuckles
against his commander’s forehead. He jumped a little when Sole began to blink
up at him. “Can’t sleep?” He asked. Sole lazily shook their head no. “Get down
here.” They demanded. “Alright, alright, calm down.” Preston smiled and
un-tucked Sole so that he could slip in.
“Where’s the teddy bear I gave you?” Preston frowns. Sole
wrapped their arms around him and snuggled into his chest. “What are you
talking about, it’s right here.” That made Preston blush.
Cait: At first
Cait was all aboard for Sole’s “tough it out” method, but she drew the line
when Sole’s uncontrollably loud sneezes alerted a pack of yao guis that they
were trying to bypass. “Alright, that’s it.” Cait drug Sole into the closest standing
infrastructure and threw her down onto a dirty mattress. “Listen here now, ya
aren’t movin’ from that spot until I say so. It’s too dangerous out there with
you lettin’ every creep and critter know right where to find us.” Sole groaned
and fell back on the mattress, partly irritated and partly relieved. The
ever-present wasteland dust was destroying their nose.
Cait shuffled about the house they were in and managed to
scrounge up a box of instamash. She used some of her water and a hotplate she
found in the kitchen to prepare it, and then brought it to Sole. “Gotcha some
food. Can’t get well on an empty stomach yeah?” Cait hands Sole the bowl of
mash and sits down beside them.
“Could you eat any louder Sole? And that’s me sayin’ that.”
“I have a stopped up nose be quiet.”
“Okay, that’s enough.” Cait steals Sole’s half eaten bowl of
mash. “Hey!” Sole glares at Cait, “I wasn’t finished.” Cait ignores them, “If
you’re gonna sit there an’ smack yer lips then I’m gonna give you a reason to.”
She then grabs Sole’s shirt and pulls them in for a loud and messy kiss.
Piper: “I told you not to eat that mirelurk sandwich!” Sole vomited
into the bucket on the other side of the door. “ Eeugh, does that look as
disgusting as it sounds?” Piper slowly creaks open the door to the bathroom in
Sole’s house. “Hey Blue, need someone to hold your hair?” Piper jokes, but her
voice was soft and concerned. “I feel awful.” Sole moaned during a moment of
peace between the hurling. Piper actually did stand behind Sole and rubbed the
back of their head affectionately; it always seemed to help Nat whenever she
“C’mon Blue, time for bed.” Piper
escorted Sole to their bed and covered them up with a blanket. “I’ll go get you
something really quick, okay.” Sole nodded and watched Piper leave the room.
About an hour later Piper shows up at Sole’s bedside with a bowl of warm
noodles and bottle of Nuka Cola. “Here ya go Blue. This is the meal I serve Nat
whenever she catches a flu from the other kids in Diamond City.” Sole
gratefully devoured the treat and then settled into their covers after
finishing. They already felt kind of sleepy now, the memory of lunch earlier
that day slipping away.
“Nighty night.” Piper whispers as
she backs out of Sole’s bedroom.
Sole wakes up fully refreshed that
next morning, and they made their first priority to find and thank Piper for
taking such good care of them. When they found her they pulled Piper in for a
big sloppy kiss. Piper enjoyed it until Sole stuck their tongue in her mouth,
“UGH! SOLE, YOU’RE MOUTH TASTES LIKE VOMIT!” Piper screeches. Sole breathes
into their hand and shrugs while Piper obsessively gargles her way through five
different water bottles.
Danse: “Soldier!?” Danse watched as Sole started to sway and
stumble on the road in front of him. They had been trudging through the sweltering
heat for hours and had yet to find anywhere to resupply on water. As the
afternoon dragged out it had taken its toll on Sole. “SOLE!” Danse rushed to
his fainted companion and snapped his fingers in front of their face. When that
failed to work, he hastily flung Sole over his shoulder and sprinted to the
He laid Sole down on a sunken-in
sofa and started clawing his way through the kitchen, knocking pots and pans
over and sending various utensils clattering to the floor. He had to find some water, but the house
had already been picked clean. With one last hope and a small prayer Danse ran
into the backyard. Yes, this house
had a pump seated up against the house. Grabbing an empty carton from the
kitchen, Danse pumped enough water to overflow the container.
He grabs the carton a little too
tightly and water spills over his fingers. He curses but still rushes over to
Sole and kneels beside them. Carefully he props Sole up with one hand and pours
the semi-cool water over Sole’s forehead. After a minute Sole starts to blink
back into consciousness, and Danse audibly sighs. “Next time, let me know when
you need to rest soldier.”
“Ugh, I’m so thristy,” Sole
croaked. Feeling drops of water running down their face, Sole reaches out their
tongue to swipe them into their mouth. Danse became mesmerized by the way
Sole’s face and tongue glistened, and soon he had zoned out while staring at
them. “What’s wrong Danse? You thristy too?”
Nick: “Ya feelin’ alright there? You’ve got little something coming
out of your nose.” Nick raised one of his eyebrows at a sniffling Sole. “Uhhngh.
Head hur’s.” Sole mopes. The two had been taking a stroll through Diamond City
when Sole began to feel sickly. Nick gently grabbed Sole’s arm and led them to
the Noodle stand. “Can I get a hot bowl Taka?” Nick asks the robot chef. Soon,
a steaming and delicious smelling bowl of noodles was scooted across the bar to
Nick thanked Takahashi and turned
to Sole. “Here, eat something. It’ll help with the headache.” Nick proceeded to
push the bowl towards Sole who gently grasped it, holding it for a while to
warm up. “Than’s Ni’. Ugh, I fee’ so awfu’.” Nick leans over and pats Sole’s
back. “C’mon kiddo, you can bring your noodles back to the office and take a
nap after you’ve eaten.” Sole nodded and hopped down from the barstool, soup in
Back at the detective agency, Sole
finished slurping up their soup. “Ah, I already feel much better! Thanks Nick!”
“No problem kiddo. Now go to bed because I have a handful of cases for us to
work on tomorrow morning.” “Sir yes sir.” Sole saluted and marched off to
sleep. Nick chuckled, shook his head, and lit a cigarette.
Nick left his desk after a few
hours to check on Sole. They slept peacefully in his bed under the stairs, their
breathing even now. Nick smiles with relief and pets Sole’s hair with the back
of his covered hand. Before going back to work, Nick bent down to plant a
gentle kiss on the crown of their head.
Deacon: “Woah, I never took you for a user Charms.” Sole’s hands
were shaking uncontrollably as she tried to pick the lock on an explosives crate.
“Ugh, I can’t focus! My hands keep shaking and I just feel so weak! And on top
of that, my head is killing me!” Sole threw their bobby pin across the room and
slumped over onto the crate. “Hey, maybe you just need a break, y’know. I mean,
we have been going nonstop for two
days straight now, not that I’m complaining
or anything.” Deacon shrugs his shoulders. “Alright, let’s break.” Sole
The two had just gotten
comfortable in a corner of the room when Sole’s stomach growled. “Wow, should I
fear for my life?” Deacon jeers, and Sole can only muster a sideways glare. Deacon
quickly amended his comment. “Here, I happen to have some Blamco Mac ‘n’ Cheese
with me. I’ll go make it!” Sole didn’t argue, not that they had the strength
to. Soon, Deacon returned with a warm bowl of delicious yellow noodles and a
spoon. He sits down besides Sole, but keeps the bowl in his hands.
“Choo choo! All aboard!” Deacon
waved a spoonful of pasta in Sole’s face. Sole grimaced, feeling absolutely
mortified at Deacon while also trying to fight a grin. “Give me the bowl
Deacon!” “Okay!” Deacon handed Sole the bowl, but, hilariously enough, kept the
Soon the couple had finished the
noodles, and Deacon began rummaging inside his bag again. Once he found what he
was looking for, he whipped out a box of Fancy Lad snack cakes and smiled wryly
at Sole. “Who’s ready for desert?” He asked, slowly unwrapping one of the
cakes. When Sole opened their mouth to comment, Deacon quickly shoved a cake
inside their mouth causing them to gag. “Hey genius, you missed some.” And then
Deacon gave Sole’s cheek one good long lick.
Curie: “Ouagh *cough*
uhhh….” Curie zoned in on Sole as soon as she heard them coughing. “Get inside at once! You are sick! I told you to
put on more layers yesterday and you didn’t listen did you!” Curie made a stern
face at Sole and ushered them into their home. “Next time, listen to someone
wiz more experience in taking care of people than you!” Curie pushed Sole into their
bed and harrumphed as she marched into the kitchen. Shellshocked, Sole just sat
there with the covers hanging limply in their hands.
Curie made her way back with a
steaming bowl of broth and some purified water. “Now, I am going to sit here
and you are going to finish all of
zhis.” To make her point, Curie sat down on a chair beside Sole’s bed and
crossed her legs. Sole, still a little shocked at Curie’s forwardness, stared
dumbly at the scientist. “Go on zhen, eat!”
Startled, and honestly a little intimidated, Sole brought the spoon to their lips.
Sole grimaced when the soup spread
across their tongue. It tasted like the way inside of Danse’s power armor
smelled. But, they couldn’t spit it out; she was watching. And so began a torturous
thirty minutes for Sole. Needless to say Sole always listened to Curie from
For some unidentifiable reason,
Sole started to experience intense nausea. They curled up desperately on the
bed, trying to will away the bile rising in their throat. Curie concernedly sat
beside them and began to stroke their hair which helped with the queasiness.
Sole sighs in relief. “Does zhis help? Ah, I shall have to do it more often then,
oui?” Sole didn’t disagree.
MacCready: “WHOA! OH, no… Wow, um. Eugh, uh hey… are you uh… gonna
be okay?” MacCready had to stop himself from vomiting. One minute Sole was just
dandy, traveling with him to Goodneighbor, and then it was suddenly just vomit
everywhere. MacCready wasn’t very eager to step in, but he figured he should at
least try to help Sole. “Hey, um… Do you need to go lie down somewhere? I think
we just passed some abandoned apartments.” Sole nodded their head wordlessly,
taking deep breaths to contain any vestiges of that day’s breakfast.
Upon arriving in the apartment,
Sole shakily sat down on the bed. MacCready stood around awkwardly for a few
seconds before remembering how Lucy used to take care of Duncan. He quickly dug
around in his pack for a bottle of water and handed it to Sole. “You should
keep hydrated,” he said, “That’s what Lucy always told me anyway.” Sole
gratefully accepted the drink and slowly sipped on it. “Thanks MacCready.” They
said gratefully. “Don’t mention it!” MacCready smiles. “But let me know if you’re
gonna hurl again.” “Roger that.”
After a few moments, MacCready
spotted something on the shelf. “Oh hey! Blast Radius! We used to play games
like this all the time in Little Lamplight.” MacCready looked over the box nostalgically.
“Wanna play?” He asked Sole. “Sure!” “Heh, get ready to have you’re a- butt
handed to you!”
Eventually MacCready packed up the
game and stashed it in his bag for later enjoyment. Sole yawned and crawled
into one of the mattresses laying around. MacCready watched as Sole tucked
themselves in, and then he had an idea. He quietly walked over to Sole and
leaned down to give their forehead a soft, lingering kiss. Sole looked up and
blushed. When MacCready noticed Sole watching him, he also blushed. “Hey, that’s
what you do when people are sick, right?”
Hancock: “C’mon, did you have to sneeze all over the coat Sole?”
Hancock screwed his face up at the giant glob of snot hanging from his sleeve. “Sorry…
That is kinda a big booger.” Sole breathed through their mouth. “No kiddin’.”
Hancock shot Sole an incredulous look, then softened his expression. Wow, they
looked really messed up. “Hey uh, let’s you and me go back to the ol’ mayoral
residence and get you a couch to lay down on.” Hancock crooked one of his
elbows and allowed Sole to loops their arm through his for support.
Sole stumbled behind Hancock into
his home but couldn’t get any further than the foot of the stairs. They looked
up the spiraling ascent with dread. Suddenly, their feet left the ground as
Hancock scooped them up into his arms and began climbing the stairs. Sole felt
a little lightheaded now and quickly fainted against Hancock’s chest. When
Hancock reached his couch, he asked Fahrenheit to grab Sole some food and water
for when they woke up.
Not wanting to disturb the
sleeping survivor, Hancock sat down while still holding Sole, and then began
fit them inside his coat as much as he could to warm them up. Sole
subconsciously drew into the warmth of the coat and spent the rest of the night
sleeping under the lapels of Hancock’s collar.
Hancock stayed up for a while,
entertaining himself by watching Sole dreamlessly sleep. Their skin looked so
smooth, and he couldn’t help but reach his hand up to rub their cheek. Yep, he
mentally confirmed, definitely as soft as it looks. He then wondered about Sole’s
lips and decided he would ask them about those tomorrow.
X6-88: Sole had been hiding their cough the entire day, as if X6
wouldn’t notice their body tremor every once in a while from holding them in.
Finally, X6 rolled his eyes behind his glasses and stopped Sole. “Sir/ma’am, I
can tell you’re sick. Stop trying to hide it from me, and let’s find somewhere
to stay for the night.” Sole countered him, “It’s just a cold X, I’ll be fine.
Plus, we still have a lot of ground to cover.” “It had not been a suggestion
Sole. You and I are going to find cover for the night right now.”
And that was that. Sole moped behind
X6 as he drug them to an abandoned shack on the side of the road. “This will
do.” He affirmed himself. “Alright, lie down.” X6 commanded. “What?! But it’s
still two in the afternoon!” X6 didn’t ask them a second time. Sole meekly
hunkered over and lowered themselves onto the floor of the shack under the
courser’s intensely examining gaze. “Fine, fine. Goodnight.” Sole rested their head
on their backpack and tried to sleep.
“…” Sole could feel X6 burning
holes into their back with his eyes. “Hey, could you turn around? It’s hard to
sleep with you watching me like that.” Sole comments. “Sorry, but I must make
sure you actually rest like I told you to.” X6 remarked. Sole decided that it
was going to be a very long night.
“Would it put you more at ease if
I laid down as well?” X6 asked. “Sure.” Sole shrugged, still not at all sleepy.
All at once Sole felt arms snake around them, and they would have jumped about
a foot off of the ground had it not been for X6 holding them there. “Better?”
X6 asked. Sole remained quiet, too stunned to really reply. X6 smirked. “I
should have stopped you earlier. We could have been doing this all day.”
Codsworth: “Oh sir/mum! Why
did you go in the water? Did you not see it? It was green!” Codsworth wished he could glare at Sole in disapproval at
the moment. Not only did he have to pluck leeches from all over their body, but
now they also had a horrible rash blazing across their entire chest. “Tut tut,
it is a shame that we have to waste all of this Abraxo on you, and it will
likely make the itching worse. I hope you’re happy with yourself. Honestly, who
goes for a dip in some random irradiated cesspool? I just can’t-“ Sole listened
to Codsworth chatter on and on as they shivered in the washtub he had them
soaking in, and every time they went to itch a red spot, Codsworth would smack
their hand away. “I swear sir/mum, it’s like taking care of a child!”
Dogmeat: Sole had been laid up in bed the whole day, not even able
to gather enough strength to roll out form under the covers. They hear Dogmeat’s
tell tale pitter patter of paws on the dilapidated tile and watch as he leapt
into bed with them. He hated seeing Sole so weak, so he brought a present to
cheer them up.
“DOGMEAT GET THAT DISGUSTING SQUIRREL
HEAD AWAY FROM ME!”
Strong: Strong refused to stop traveling just because Sole was
sick. Instead, he gladly let Sole ride atop his shoulders as they gallivanted across
the Commonwealth. “STRONG LIKE THIS! IS THIS WHAT SCARF FEEL LIKE? MAYBE YOU
BECOME STRONG’S SCARF?”
Maxson: Maxson almost missed Sole when they passed out in front of
him. One minute he was giving them a debriefing and the next he had barely
caught them under their arms as they collapsed. “Soldier? Can you hear me?”
Maxson barked in Sole’s ear, but they gave no response. He suspected they had
not been resting nearly enough to make up for all of the running around they
did. Maxson grunted and heaved Sole into a better position to carry them in.
He made his way to the barracks
and placed Sole on one of the beds. Hopefully they would sleep through the
night and finally feel well rested in the morning. Maxson made a note to
himself to go easy with the assignments on Sole for a while.
“Are you feeling better now?”
Maxson approached Sole with his resting glare. Sole panicked a little when they
couldn’t remember what he was talking about. “Y-yes sir.” They muttered, unsure
of what else to say. Maxson smirked a little, “You don’t remember do you?” Sole
looked everywhere but at the elder. “That’s fine soldier; just get more rest
from now on, alright?” Sole gave an affirmative answer, but blushed when Maxson
flippantly tousled their hair as he passed by.
My cat-obsessed son (age 11) is trying to steal a neighbor’s cat.
Every time he sees this cat out and about in the neighborhood, he stops and pets it for as long as he can. And today, he saw it in the field behind our house (our backyard abuts a hayfield - yes, I live in semi-rural suburban sprawl) and lured it into our yard. Then he picked it up and brought it inside to pet it and play with it and introduce it to one of our cats. I’m pretty sure this lasted for about an hour until I got home from errands and he hastily put it back outside, because he knew I would not approve.
Now I feel obliged to start reminding him, on a daily basis, that he is not allowed to steal the neighbor’s cat.
