“…Do you ever wonder who you’ll be when you grow up?”
Chat considered the question, twirling around the spire as a distant church rang out the first hour past midnight. “Sometimes.”
Ladybug looked up, eyes full of moonlight, and hesitated again. “…Does it ever scare you?”
“What, the future?” Chat hopped down to her level, gravel crunching under his heels and fireplace smoke in his nose. “…A little bit.”
She lowered her eyes from the sky to where the carpet of golden city lights met the horizon, a knit in her covered brow. “Not… the future, but…”
Dropping into a crouch next to her, Chat rested his chin on his palm and waited for her to gather her thoughts. Conversations like this weren’t unusual between them, and he knew the rhythm of them by now.
Ladybug breathed deep, breath clouding in the chill night air, and said, “I mean, do you ever get scared that… maybe you’ll never be who you wanted to be? That maybe you’ll just…” She shrugged uncomfortably. “I don’t know, fail?”
Something squeezed tight in Chat’s chest, fueled half by the wistfulness in her voice and half by his own anxieties.
