For the prompts: sorry were you sleeping, Ladrien
“Sorry.” Adrien scratched the back of his neck nervously. “Were you sleeping?”
Ladybug blinked heavy eyes at him. “Was I…huh?”
“I just, uh, I didn’t want you to fall.”
Ladybug looked down to find herself crouched against one of the large windows that made up a wall of Adrien’s room. As if becoming aware of it made it real, shooting pain ran up her legs and back from their prolonged abuse in her current position. She tried to stand quickly and lost her balance. A strong hand grabbed her arm and pulled her into the room.
“What were you doing out there?” Adrien asked, leading her to the couch.
Ladybug sat down, sighing in relief. Her cheeks flushed pink when she processed his question. “I-I…I was checking up on you.”
“Is there an akuma?”
“No, nothing like that. Wow, I must seem like a total creep.” She dropped her face in her hands. “I worry about you a lot s-so sometimes I like to come make sure you’re okay. I guess I fell asleep watch–” Ladybug groaned in embarrassment and folded in on herself a bit.
Adrien licked his lips. “You worry about me?”
Ladybug looked up at him. “Ever since Volpina, I can’t stop seeing you dangling from the Tower.”
“That wasn’t really me.”
“I know that…but it could have been.”
Adrien took a deep breath and reached out for Ladybug’s hand. She looked up at him in surprise. “It’s really sweet that you care about the citizens of Paris so much.” He traced a finger along the dimpled material covering her palm. “No wonder you’re exhausted if you try to visit everyone you’ve ever saved.”
“I don’t,” she replied quietly, mesmerized by the pattern he was making.
“You’re the only one I visit,” she admitted.
“Oh,” he breathed. “W-why is that?”
Ladybug’s cheek reddened again. “I’m…you’re…” She stood quickly. “I should go.”
Adrien still held onto her hand. “Now? B-but maybe we can hang out!”
“Don’t you have school soon?”
“I’ll skip it.”
“I have school soon.”
He looked down. “Right. Okay.” He hadn’t let go of her hand yet. “Will you, um, will you visit me again?”
“Do you want me to?”
“Yes!” It was Adrien’s turn to duck his head in embarrassment and dropped her hand.
Emboldened by his declaration, Ladybug leaned over and gave him a quick kiss on the cheek. “Until next time then.” She quickly jumped to the window sill and slung out her yo-yo.
Adrien slid down to the ground with a goofy grin on his face.
“Oh brother,” Plagg complained. “You’re going to be even worse now, aren’t you?”
