Service with a Smile CH 14
A/N: Thank you for the wait.
Okay, but. One–I’m starting to… really question why I titled this “Service with a Smile,” but I’m just gonna live with it, whoops. Two–it has been. So long since I’ve written anything for HTTYD. Forgive me if this is terrible, but it’s also kind of a prelude to the fifteenth chapter. :’) Three–I thank you all for your continuous support! I have more stories in the works! <3
(The events of chapter 13 will be expanded upon throughout the next few installments! Hope that clears any confusion–please feel free to send me any asks. Also… if there are plot inconsistencies, lemme know. I am so out of touch, it’s sad.)

he realized how disheveled they both were after that incident. While
he tried to reassure himself that it was a joint effort that got them
soaking wet, the way she shivered and held her upper arms and hugged
herself concerned him.
“About?” Hiccup prompted, despite already knowing the answer.
“That. Us. You know what I mean,” she responded, gesturing to the fountain with a vague hand and a quiet huff. Though she showed no signs of regretting the kiss they shared, if their close proximity was any indication, Hiccup still worried. She was obviously cold, too–and the only thing he could offer was a wet suit jacket that would only worsen her condition.
It almost seemed like a really, really fucked up metaphor.
