Is peevils going to check on Ollie? He was nice to her and it seems she's worry about him as well please😊
Peevils appears in the lobby of Ego Inc. where she assumes she’ll find Oliver working only to crash directly into Dark, who is on his way out. They spring apart in various levels of disarray before they’re able to compose themselves once again.
“Wh-what are you doing here?” Dark attempts to fix his hair as splotches of blush appear on his cheeks and down his neck.
Peevils smirks and curls her hair behind her ear, sending a flush of her aura his way. “I wanted to check on little Ollie.”
Jealously spikes in Dark’s gut even though he knows it’s just her working her magic on him. He shakes his head and glares at her. “Stop that. If you want the yellow nuisance, go find him and leave me alone.”
He tries to push past her and get out the door, but Peevils catches his tie and pulls him back, noting the red spreading across his usually parchment-colored skin. “Well, well. A little more of that quaint humanity back. Isn’t it such a pain, Darkipoo?”
Dark catches her wrist in his hand and squeezes. The blush disappears from his skin, replaced with Dark’s signature ringing and the thick, black abyss of his aura as it closes around her. “Don’t test me. You won’t like the results.”
“Looks like you’re not as redeemed as you’d hoped,” she bites back, keeping her grip on his tie like a dog on a short leash. “Let me know when you finally explode. I’d like to see the show.”
“I thought you wanted me to change back. I thought you missed the old me,” he growls. “Why do you keep doing this?”
“Because I don’t want to let you forget what you turned into. The others might be ready to swallow your little lie, but I’m not. And I’ll make sure you know it every moment until you finally show your true colors again.” She pulls him even closer so that they’re inches apart. “Because don’t you think for a moment I believe this bull.”
Dark grits his teeth. “Let me go then.”
She doesn’t. “Admit it. You’re just trying to fool them.”
“Will it make you feel better? Will it take away the guilt that you were the reason I gave up my humanity in the first place?” Dark bends her wrist until she finally lets go. “Because don’t think I don’t know about that, Starlight.”
Peevils takes a step back when he releases her, staring at him in barely-concealed shock. Dark straightens his tie once again, clearing his throat. “If I had to do it all over again, I still would’ve done what I had to in order to survive.” He levels his gaze at her, and she takes another step back. “So you needn’t worry your pretty little head too much about that.”
He steps past her, pausing in the doorway. “And by the way, tell your little mad scientist friend that if he ever tries anything like that again, the glitch will be the least of his worries.” The door swings shut behind him.
