_____ skipped happily, singing a happy tune to herself. Today was going to be fun! She was going to visit her friend Yao's house! The two of you always had such a great time together after all.
But when she went to knock on the door, there was no response... When she rang the doorbell, the same thing.
I'm not early, am I? she wondered, checking her phone. Nope, she was right on time.
"Huh... Weird..." _____ said aloud. Though she knew it was stupid, she decided to just try opening the door. It worked.
She facepalmed. It wasn't like Yao to make such a silly mistake. What was he up to?
She walked into the house and made her way into the living room, where she heard noise
"Yao, what are you doing?" ______ asked, upon coming into his house.
"Oh, ______. Is today the day you were supposed to be coming over?"
"Um... Yeah." she deadpanned.
"Aiyah! I'm so sorry; I completely forgot!" he cried, scrambling to pick things up. "This place is so messy..."
Yao's place didn't look too bad, not to _____, at least. But he continued furiously cleaning the house.
"So uh... What distracted you so much?"
"I was watching too cute..."
".... Are you serious right now?"
_________ sighed. She knew of Yao's weakness for cute things, but this was too much.
"Yao, you're killing me with this cuteness obsession."
"You just don't understand ______."
"You got that right."
Suddenly a smile came on his face. "Wanna watch this with me? You might understand then..."
"Uh..." she muttered. It's not that she didn't like cute animals. She had heart after all. She just wasn't sure she was in the mood right now.
"Come on, ________. You might as well, since you're here."
Well… he had a point… She decided to watch it with him.
After an hour, only one episode, mind you, she thought she was going to die.
In a good way.
Because of the cuteness.
The animals were soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute! The baby kitties and puppies and, gah!
Without either of them realizing it, the two were cuddling with each other, dying of cuteness overload. And since this was a marathon, they stayed like this for a long time.
And they also didn't realize (well, maybe remember would be a better word) that they kind of, sort of… confessed their feelings for each other. They called each other cute and well… things kind of took off from there.
It's okay, it'd occur to them in the morning.
