A/N: I may or may not have slipped a little something in here for the hardcore Gruvia fans. It wasn’t initially planned but I thought I’d give you guys a little something to squeal about as a thanks for being so, so patient with my slow updates. Also, I think I just spotted a comment saying it’s a certain someone’s birthday. So I decided to post this today. Happy Birthday @celestialcontrail :)
;I’m losing this battle with every word I say. Wish I’d had a better lesson at not giving myself away ‘cause the truth is I’m falling to pieces any time you’re around. Trouble is the truth keeps slipping out. Can’t seem to hide what I’m feeling. Can’t believe what I’m saying out loud. Truth is there’s no turning back now. Well, I guess I should’ve learned how to lie a little better.
Chapter Six: Little White Lies
‘What’s taking them so long?’
Silver eased back in his seat to appraise his moping son. Though the air held a chill that wouldn’t cease, it was a comforting sort of cold; the kind that comes unannounced on a hot day to relieve the burden of muscles rippling with sweat. Gray leveled his gaze with his father’s, refusing to relinquish his attitude, or his perseverance.
As though in tune with Gray’s discomfort, Silver took a deliberately long sip of water from his cup. ‘I’m sure Juvia is fine, Gray.’
Gray averted his gaze and fiddled with the knot of his tie. He felt far too dressed up for what Jason had called an informal interview. ‘And what’s with this freakishly warm weather?’ Successful in loosening his tie, Gray unbuttoned his blazer and fought the growing urge to take it off. ‘These clothes are too stifling.’
‘Must you complain about everything?’ Silver asked. ‘As I recall, this was your idea.’
‘I said an interview,’ Gray sniped. ‘Not a photo shoot.’
‘Are you sure you’re not just feeling antsy because Lucy took Juvia away to be pampered?’
Gray shot his father a scathing look. ‘This isn’t about Juvia.’
‘That’s strange. Isn’t that exactly who this is about?’
