OTP Prompt 67
Whenever they fight, Person A simply won’t get expressively mad. They don’t yell, don’t fuss, they’re practically a rock.
While it’s nice that Person A can stay level headed most always, when they’re fighting, Person B gets so irritated that A can seem so indifferent.
During one fight, Person A is getting lightly more lively than average, but is tempering themselves as always. They take deep breaths before responding, speak in a near-monotone, and stay relatively still through the whole thing; meanwhile Person B is raising their voice and getting that irritated feeling again.
“GOD, A, DO YOU EVEN CARE? WHY DON’T YOU JUST ARGUE WITH ME LIKE A NORMAL PERSON INSTEAD OF SOME KIND OF ROBOT?”
Tensions have been rising and this little robot comment sends A to the brink. Regardless of their temper’s ferocity internally, they respond with a slightly raised voice, “Because I will not to have his temper!”
And then B remembers how wary A always is around their dad or ex, and things start to fall into place.
