Eyyyyy match up monday, I hope this is okay, haha! Would it be alright if I requested something with a male, blonde, flirtyish jokester who's hella close friends with Kisumi, getting unusually flustered when confessing to our favourite candyfloss bby out of the blue, and Kisumi's reaction? I recently came out to my friends, and they didn't take it so well, so I'm looking for a pick me up, haha...
“I like you.” You’d wanted to say it for a while now, but hadn’t been able to find the right time or place. Though out of all the ways you’d thought about telling your best friend you liked him, just blurting it out in the middle of lunch hadn’t really been on the list.
Kisumi was quiet for a second before he laughed and it made your heart sink a little. “I like you too,” he responded in a flirty tone while giving you his best impression of “bedroom eyes.”
You sighed. It wasn’t any big surprise that this was coming back to bite you in the ass. The two of you played around and flirted heavily with each other pretty often. The rest of your friends had long ago gotten used to the two of you making playful passes at each other and usually just rolled their eyes now. But now that it was out in the open, now that you wanted to be serious about it, Kisumi thought you were joking.
“No,” you started as you ran a hand through blond hair and tried to sort out what you wanted to say. “Kisumi, there’s nobody else around to joke and show out for.” You had to pause for a deep, calming breath before continuing, “I like you. I mean…I really really like you.” You could feel your face heating up with every word and hoped it wasn’t as noticeable as it felt.
“Oh,” Kisumi breathed. Slowly, his cheeks came closer and closer to matching his hair, and you wondered if that was a good thing or not. “I…well, uh…” He laughed nervously before putting on a bright smile. “Want to go see a movie tonight?”
Sighing at the topic change, you told him, “It’s okay if you don’t feel-”
“No, no, no!” He interrupted. “I meant…do you want to go see a movie? Like on a date? My treat?”
As you swallowed down the lump in your throat, you were sure that he could see your blush now. “Yeah.” You couldn’t help but smile as you answered. When it started to sink in a little more that your best friend and crush had just asked you out after your impromptu confession, you answered again with more excitement, “Yeah, that sounds great!”
You could feel your heart skip a beat when Kisumi smiled at your response and suddenly wondered if you ever had the same effect on him.
