THNMY - One Day At A Time
And as she lounged on her couch there napping,
Suddenly, there came a rapping!
There came a rap-rap-rapping
Upon her apartment door!
Whoever could it be?
"Who's there?~" Might as well ask, why not. Could just be like... a landlord or something. But she hideously doubted that one. Good going Mai.
... Oh, why not.
"Santa Claus." Sure it's a lie, but it's a REALLY BIG lie, so doesn't count, right?
"Oh really? Well, the door is unlocked, Santa." Might as well play along. Too amuse to not of course.
There are hurried sounds of running away, followed by incoherent yelling from a guy very far down the hall.. then silence.
Broken by a quick running back sound!
The door starts to creeeeak open, gradually revealing an Akuma in a Santa hat! D'aww, it even has the fluffy ball on the end.
Ooh, and he's carrying a sack!
Despite the fact she figured he'd taken it off of someone she can't help but giggle a little bit. "Akuma, really, it doesn't look that great on you."
...But he was so SUBTLE about it!
Still, that led to him moving forward and using one hand to place it on HER head. "I cannot say the same.."
She WAS quite fetching in it, after all. And the color complemented her outfit remarkably. ..On that premise, maybe he should have gotten some fake reindeer horns.
Aw, she's still giggling a tiny bit. "Sit, sit. There's things to talk about, of course..." She trailed off a bit.
Business as usual, no?
He nodded, sitting down. "Of course. But first.."
He digs around in the sack he bears, finally coming out with a small wrapped present!
Aww, and look at the white-trimmed red ribbon bow on it. He used her colors!
So after all the handwavey nonsense....
Akuma's on the floor beside the bed, seeming strangely shrunken and wrinkled. Mai's laying upon the bed, temporarily unconscious and smiling, wearing a pair of socks.. and nothing else.
We're not going to mention the mysterious stains in such quantity as to seem like a fire hose opened up, the shreds of clothing, or the scorch mark shaped like a kanji 'ten' in Mai's sheets that she's currently lying upon... But just look at Akuma's face.
Who knew he could actually smile?
Probably needs some serious rehydration, tho'.
You know, not that the unconscious thing would last long, seriously. I mean, why in the hell would she stay asleep? Little rest for the wicked, darling.
"Nn?" Mai opened one eye for a moment, looking towards Akuma since he was kind of in her vision and all that fun stuff. A small yawn escaped from her before scooting off the bed. You know, it was more fun to not lay there in the cold. Pssh.
"Uh, you okay? You seem kinda... dead?" She blinked a bit, scooting to try and sit in his lap to look straight at him. "But, I wouldn't blame you. My poor bed."
And very, VERY wicked she was indeed! If Akuma could form coherent thoughts at the moment, he might be thankful of that.. but it's a very big if.
"Nnnmnn.." Is about all he can reply, and really. He has lost a LOT of electrolytes here, needs recharge!
And yet, the smile just won't go away.
Hah! Ifs aren't that great of a thing to go with at all.
"I'll be back." Yeah, good idea to go get some water. Really.
((Small post, myeh.))
He manages to reach a hand up to touch her hip as she goes! "Mmnmmnm." He's trying to convey something important, probably something very nice about her!
Talking would be helpful to that, yeah, but one step at a time.
