Marinette wrung her hands together, stubbornly not looking down but up at the boy in front of her. She’d practiced what she was going to say to him for the last week, since it seemed she couldn’t do this impulsively. “Adrien I really enjoy hanging out with you and, well, we’re friends,” she would not make that a question! She knew they were! “But I, I wonder if you’d like to be, um, date friends instead? Because I really think you’re wonderful.”

Adrien blinked in surprise. That wasn’t a bad sign.

He put his hand behind his neck a rubbed it. “Oh! Wow!” A good sign perhaps?

“I’m really flattered.” Uh-oh!

“I really value our friendship.” S.O.S!

“I mean I think of you as one of my best friends.” At least he meant it.

“It’s just that, there’s someone else.” And Marinette’s heart sank.  

Forcing to keep her smile, Marinette nodded. Adrien looked worried which was both sweet and frustrating. He cared but just not in the right way. “Oh, um, well, I’ll see you later.”

She saw the way his hand moved to her, just as she turned. She couldn’t look him in the eye and it was just best to leave the awkward situation. After all, there was nothing more to say. She ran off, but waved her hand behind. He was still her friend, and she wanted to at least maintain that. Just as soon as she got over the heartbreak.

As soon as they were out of sight, a red kwami was trying to reassure her charge. “It will be okay Marinette,” Tikki said quietly, peeking out from the girl’s purse.

Marinette rubbed her eyes with the back of one hand. “I know you’re right Tikki. It still hurts though.”

“Of course it does. And I know it doesn’t seem like it right now, but telling him was for the best. You don’t have to keep worrying about ‘what ifs’.”

Marinette made a choking laugh. “At least, at least he still wants to be friends.”

If Tikki was going to say more she didn’t get a chance as another voice caught Marinette’s attention.

Tommy shook his head when he went to knock on your door and it swung open. Despite his insistence to lock it even during the day you never did, the only people who associated with you knew the Shelby’s well, so naturally you assumed no one to troublesome would bother you.

 

“(Y/N)?” He called and removed the whistled kettle that sat on the oven.

(The following is a WIP. Need a little motivation to get the akuma battle written)

-Marinette has confessed to Adrien but unfortunately he has rejected her. A new akuma is made, vowing vengeance against Adrien Agreste. Everyone’s assumptions are wrong.-

Marinette wrung her hands together, stubbornly not looking down but up at the boy in front of her. She’d practiced what she was going to say to him for the last week since it seemed she couldn’t do this impulsively. “Adrien I really enjoy hanging out with you and, well, we’re friends,” she would not make that a question! She knew they were! “But I, I wonder if you’d like to be, um, date friends instead? Because I really think you’re wonderful.”

“That doesn’t look good,” Nino muttered from his hiding spot next to Alya. They knew what Marinette had planned on doing, even if she hadn’t told Alya the exact details.

Alya sighed as she watched the retreating form of her best friend. “I should go after her.”

Surprisingly Nino held her shoulder and shook his head. Alya looked at him ready to protest. “Wait until she calls you or something.”

“But…”

“She’s probably really embarrassed right now and if she knows we were spying it might make it worse.”

“I can’t just sit around and do nothing. She’s my best friend and she’s in pain!”

“I’m not saying don’t do anything, I’m just saying…”

Nino didn’t get a chance to finish as a shriek erupted not far from them. “Come out Adrien Agreste!”

A few meters in front of them was a female figure with a multilayered dress, sickening grey blue skin, long purplish nails and most telling of all, dark pig-tails. With a gasp, Alya and Nino spoke at the same time. “Marinette!”

Adrien had walked off in the opposite direction as Marinette after the exchange. He felt weird about the whole thing. Marinette liked him, like liked him liked him. Like he had told her, he was flattered. Marinette was an amazing girl and to have someone like that to feel that way about him was in some sense nice. The obvious problem of course was he was in love with Ladybug, which most the time wasn’t a problem at all.

All the while he was ignoring anything and everything Plagg was saying because it was not helpful in the least. Not that the kwami was saying much, just snickering at him being flustered. At least that’s what Adrien thought though what exactly was 'more convoluted’ he did not know.

His curious nature was interrupted by the sound of an angry voice calling out his name. That couldn’t be good. He was afraid what Chat Noir was going to find.

Nino was looking at the business end of those long nails. They hadn’t expected her to move so fast. “Tell me where Adrien Agreste is!”
