(FLASHBACK~! 4 years ago…)
Chat: We should just… hang out sometime! Just… to bond, y'know? We should become better friends.
Ladybug (blushing intensifies): I’d like that… But… what do you want to do?
Chat: I don’t know… what do you like to do with your friends?
Ladybug: Well… I like video games!
Chat: Me too! But wait… I don’t think we can get away with sneaking a television out of our homes. What else?
Ladybug: Well, I like fashion too. Sometimes my best friend and I give each other makeovers!
Chat: Youuu… want to give me a makeover?
Ladybug (excitedly): Oh!!! C-can I???
Chat (caving at the first puppy-dog eyed look from LB, chuckles): Knock yourself out, Little Lady.
Ladybug (stops breathing, gasps, squees dramatically, hugs him): Oh Chat, I can’t wait!!!
Ladybug: W-wow! Your hair is so soft! Are your parents like hairdressers or something?
Chat: Haha, nothing like that. I guess I’m just lucky?
Ladybug: Totally! I’d kill to have hair this soft!
Chat: I could buy you some of the conditioner I use.
Ladybug (whispers): I love you…
