I JUST SERVED A CUSTOMER AND THEY WERE PURCHASING A CUCUMBER AND THEY WENT
“It’s for Valentine’s Day”
“You must be lonely?”
THEY REALISED WHAT I MEANT AND NOW I’M SAT WITH A COMPLAINANT FORM IN FRONT OF ME.
And now I’m just imagining Derek Hale at the supermarket at like nine at night on Feb. 13, innocently going through the checkout with his cucumber…..
It’s nine at night on February 13 when this hot-like-burning guy in a leather jacket comes up to Stiles’ lane at the supermarket and plops down a single cucumber and a crumpled dollar bill on the belt.
Stiles hefts it. “Uh, just this?”
The guy nods and offers, “It’s, um, for Valentine’s Day.”
Stiles blurts, “You must be lonely,” because this is his brain on less than three hours of sleep, ladies and gentlemen of the jury. College sucks.
Cucumber Guy’s eyes widen behind his thick-framed glasses (glasses that do nothing to diminish his attractiveness, unfortunately) and he just stands there staring at Stiles, color flooding to his cheeks.
Stiles replays what he just said in his head and mentally slaps himself. “No, wait, that’s not—”
Cucumber Guy just shakes his head, takes his cucumber and his receipt, and walks away.
Since the chapter 187 , I like to think that sometimes , ZZX helps GS to do his homework. Let’s say they become good friends. One day , at ZZX’s home , GS finds a box on his desk. A chocolate box. From his sister (bc brother complex).
ZZX proposes him to have a taste and hands him one. GS bites into it. He likes it. He gives him the other half and , little by little , they end up sharing them mouth to mouth. They finish the entire box like that.
Potter Prompt: I hc Merton Graves (cellist of the Weird Sisters) as aro! -H
Chocolate Frog Card description: Plays cello with the popular wizarding band The Weird Sisters.
In music, Merton, who prefers to go by Graves, can both lose himself… and find himself. In music, Graves can tune out the pressure from his parents and grandparents to “find a nice witch and settle down”. In music, Graves can feel a true connection to the world around him. In music, Graves can ignore all the voices telling him he’s wrong or broken. In music, Graves can build his own path and people will follow him.
“C’mon, Graves. Yes or no? Music or school? We’re getting opportunities now. We can’t wait a couple years to get big; the opportunities might be gone.”
Merton knew he should stay in school. It was what was expected of him.
But heck. There were so few schools and they basically just handed out diplomas to anyone who attended. If he missed a few days, really. What would they do?
Besides. To be honest. Graves wasn’t a great student. If music didn’t work out or when it stopped paying him, it wasn’t like he was going to be a great academic or do some job that required a ridiculous amount of training.
“I’m in. It sounds like a great gig,” Graves grinned.
“Then you’re officially a Weird Sister,” he was welcomed.
Graves’ grin widened. He had a gig! But more importantly, he was officially a part of a team of friends that never once judged him for being aromantic or pressured him into having a relationship.
