In honor of Thomas Sanders, the man who introduced me to Heathers, JD gives Veronica a Misleading Compliment.
Awesome! I hope this was a request, the wording was a little confusing to me, I’m a terrible reader. i should get that out right now. Things swim around and stuff, that’s why I write! Because it’s less confusing to me! Is he a friend of yours? Tell him I wrote this for you guys! Enjoy!
JD gave Veronica a kiss before running out, leaving her in the yard with the Heathers. “What do you think that meant?” Veronica asked, turning to look at her friends. Heather shrugged and balanced the croquet mallet on her shoulder. The girls have stopped playing and started gossiping at this point.
“What?” Heather asked.
“Well, JD told me I make him crazy.” Veronica turned around.
“Aw! That’s cute!” Mac smiled. “He really loves you, Ronnie.” She grinned, running over to give her friend a hug. Duke shook her head and hit the croquet ball before walking over and pushing Mac out of the way.
“No way, that was an insult, Veronica.” She told the girl. “He’s getting sick of you.”
“Shut up, Heather!” Heather yelled at her. “JD isn’t getting sick of you, Ronnie. But you probably did something to made him upset.” She explained.
“He wasn’t acting upset. He seemed really happy just now.” Veronica recalled.
“Guys it wasn’t an insult.” Mac tried to chime in. “Shut up, Heather!” Heather called at her. “I know what I’m talking about. Trust me, I get mad at people all the time. And he’s definitely mad at you.” She assured. “If he wasn’t you wouldn’t be making him crazy.”
“You’re making him crazy because he’s CRAZY!” Duke cried. “JD is problem child. I don’t know why you hang around with him. He lives in your basement wearing that black trench coat. He looks like the phantom of the opera but with an attractive face.” She complained, but then shook her head. “I gotta hand it to you Ronnie. I don’t like him but JD is pretty cute.”
“You guys promised me you’d try to get along with JD.” Veronica reminded. The two Heathers made a bit of a face and then Mac tried to cut in yet again.
“Guys! JD isn’t mad at her!” She exclaimed.
“Shut up, Heather!” Heather yelled.
“Shut up, Heather!” Veronica snapped. “Let her talk.” She crossed her arms and Heather threw her hands up, shaking her head. “Go on, Mac.”
“Ronnie, JD isn’t mad at you, and he’s not upset. Did he seem upset?” She asked.
“No, he seemed super happy with me.” Veronica explained.
“Yeah, he is. That’s why you make him crazy.” Mac continued. “He’s crazy in love with you!” She grinned, beaming. “JD loves you, and that’s what makes him crazy. It’s a good kind of crazy and he loves it and he loves you. Don’t ever doubt that.” She promised. Veronica and the other Heathers stared at Mac for a long time. Like they didn’t expect all of this. Finally Veronica broke out in laughter. “What’s so funny, Ronnie?” Mac asked.
“You know, you’re really wise.” Veronica told her. Heather Duke gave a confused look and Veronica dismissed her. “No seriously, you are. You’re a lot smarted and sweeter than people give you credit for. Thanks Mac. How did you know all that?” She asked.
“JD told me.” She explained.
“He told you?” Veronica asked.
“Oh yeah, JD tells me everything.” Mac said casually. The three other girls gave Mac a confused look.
“Why?” Heather asked, shaking her head.
“Cause Ronnie wanted us to get along! Because we both love her, we thought it was important. So we make it a thing to go get coffee every sunday. We talk about the week. We’re coffee buddies, coffee buddies tell each other everything.” Mac explained. “He talks a lot about you, Veronica.” She giggled. Veronica blushed and looked away.
“Th-thanks, Mac.” Veronica laughed. “You two really hang out with each other every week?” She asked. Mac nodded. “Just because I wanted you guys to? You didn’t like each other just a month ago. But you guys went out to coffee every week with somebody you hated? Why?” She asked, giggling a tiny bit.
“Because we love you!” She grinned, hugging Veronica. “And you were right! We’re friends now! At least that’s what he told me. He’s really happy to do things that make you happy, and he says I’m nice to talk to. He also likes my stories.” She continued. Veronica smiled big and pulled her friend into a hug.
“Thank you, Heather.” She smiled big and pulled away. “You’re really a great person, you know that?” Veronica asked. Mac giggled and put her hands on her cheeks, shaking her head.
“Cut it out Ronnie, you’re making me blush!” She exclaimed. Mac then looked up at her friend sweetly. “You do make hims crazy, and he told me it’s the best crazy ever.”
“Has JD ever said anything about me?” Heather interjecred.
“I just wanna know.” She shrugged.
“He said he thinks red is too flashy.” Mac admitted. Heather gripped her croquet mallet and gasped, which cut off into seething.
“Well you tell him that black makes him look like he’s on trial in Salem for being a witch. And then tell him I’m going to burn him at the stake!” She growled.
“Burn the witch!” Veronica laugh, twirling her mallet. “Whose turn is it?” She asked.
“How are you not more offended by this?” Heather asked. “He called red flashy.”
“JD said he likes green, so I don’t really care.” Duke admitted.
“You get along with JD too?” Veronica asked. Duke shrugged.
“Well, not really. We still throw insults but… he said my hair tie was a pretty color and… I guess he’s nice company.” She shrugged and tried to sound like she didn’t care. “You should keep him…. He’s still crazy though.” She added quickly. Veronica laughed and shook her head.
I’m trying to work on Day 2 of my prism challenge and naturally Orange made me think Naruto and not only did I have a tough time drawing this (still not happy with the face and gesture thing like those fingers on his head pose is just not very Naruto but WHATEVER) but now I am also having a hard time coming up with colors that I like.
