She paused with her fist poised to knock, curiosity getting
the better of her.
“I am Groot.”
“Okay, how’s this? Gamora, will you go on a date with me?”
“I am Groot.”
“It’s too formal? How else am I supposed to say it?”
“I am Groot.”
“What do you mean, what if she says no? She’s not gonna say
no… do you think she’s gonna say no?!”
She’d heard enough. She retreated as quietly as she could,
feeling puzzled. Why would Peter be stressed about asking her on a date? True, they’d never been on one
before, but they’d already kissed - a lot. She’d more or less admitted that she loved
him. What could he possibly be worried about?
She pulled out her holo; time to do some research.
Some time later, with a new understanding of Terran
culture and a handful of the reddest flowers she could find, she found Peter
messing with some wires in the cargo hold.
“Hey, Gamora!” He said, standing up when he noticed her. His
eyes went to the flowers. “What are those for?”
“For you.” She thrust them towards him and he took them,
though with a very confused look on his face – did he not understand his own
She pushed on. “Would you like to go somewhere to eat and then see a movie in public?”
“Like… a date?”
“Yes,” she said, relieved that he got it. “I’ve done some
research, and apparently first dates are very significant on Terra. One person
is supposed to present flowers to the other, and then they go eat at an upscale
restaurant and watch a movie.”
Peter’s lips had been twitching during her entire speech,
and he finally broke out into a grin. “Yeah, we don’t get a lot of information
about Terra out here. For one thing, I’m pretty sure it’s the girl who’s
supposed to receive the flowers.”
“Fine, I’ll take them back –“
“No!” He clutched them to his chest, crushing half of them
in the process. “That’s a stupid custom. I’m keeping them forever.”
She tried not to look too satisfied; she’d known he would
like those. “So?”
“Oh, yeah. Of course, let’s go on a date!” He looked
ecstatic, and Gamora was pleased that she’d taken the pressure off of him. As
cute as Peter was when he was nervous, she didn’t want him to stress about
something as simple as asking her a question.
But then he frowned. “Wait. Do you even really want to go on a date, or do you just
think it’s something we’re supposed to do?”
“I… want to spend time with you,” she said honestly.
“But not at a fancy restaurant, right?”
“Is that not a requirement for it to be a date?” She asked.
Maybe she should have checked more than one website for information.
Peter laughed. “Hell, no! I mean, I don’t know if Earth
customs have changed, but a date can be anything.”
“Yeah!” He grabbed one of her hands with his free one. “Wanna go watch a holo movie and make out?”

Hello everyone! I’m taking a break from this community. You see exams are next week and I really must study instead of wasting time in front of a screen. Also my mental health is not ok, so I’ll have to focus on that too. I’m not going away forever, I’m just taking a short break for now so please don’t expect anything new. I’ll reply to messages or questions when I have the time to, but I don’t promise beeing online everyday. Thank you for your understanding <3
The dazzling shine of the car is what first catches your attention, but it’s your curiosity that draws you to it. You feel almost compelled to approach the silent, sleek sports car that rests along the side of the steet, illuminated by the nearby streetlights. You’re certain that you’ve never seen this car before, and that puzzles you to no end. You live on this street, after all, and to your knowledge none of your neighbors had gotten a new car. You didn’t recognize it from anywhere else in town either, and with how small a place Jasper is, you’re sure you’d remember a car as nice as this one if you had ever seen it around.
not to be annoying or anything but i literally adore johnny suh more than anything. he’s so precious and so hard working and ahhh he’s just a giant cute ball of sunshine that goes from a puppy to hottie in 0.82929292 seconds and just i love him so much.
Only fake avocado fans have to worry about avocado hand. Those of us who are serious about our avocados have those special avocado tools that are just sharp enough to pierce the avo skin and not much else.
