Hanschen: Think of the future as a web of spiders. One man sweats and spins-threading it into a web- like Otto, for example. Another man frets, and drops the spiders, and cries all night. Like Georg. But me, well, I’m like a pussy cat, I just eat the spiders…
Summary: Prompt #6: “You make every day worth living.”
“You know, you can be a real- a real goofball, sometimes.” Alex said bluntly, staring into your (E/C) eyes.
You let out a small laugh, poking his forehead lightly, a small blush rising on your (S/C) cheeks at his bashful smile.
“A goofball? Is that your best insult, Ernst?” You teased, averting your eyes to the dark sky above you.
“It was never to insult you.” He said seriously. “I could never insult you, (Y/N).”
“You know, you’re lucky David isn’t here right now.” You sighed, blowing a piece of hair away from your face. You turned to look at Alex before speaking again. “He’d be making fun of you lots right now.”
He moved closer to you, your hands brushing.
“Why?” He mumbled, his hot breath warming your face. “I’m not being that sappy, am I?”
You held your breath as you screamed internally, but you did not allow your internal emotions to show, besides the large blush coating your cheeks. Instead, you smirked.
“Just go ahead and say it, Al.” You stuck your tongue out at him. “Say that you have a crush on me!”
“Fuck, you act like this is middle school!” He laughed alongside you. “But I won’t say that,” you felt your heart plummet at his words. “Instead, all I’ll say for now is that,” he paused.
