I hate taking breaks at work because I simply don’t have the energy to go back in. I really just want to go back to my room and sleep.
Isn’t that what everyone feels like?
Sure you don’t, Max.
I don’t. Why do you care so much?
Putain de merde, oh mon dieu. Guys, there’s a French film festival coming to the city. This is not a drill, I repeat a French film festival is coming to the city. Anybody want to tag along? I can simultaneously watch and whisper translate since I don’t think the movies have subtitles yet.
Oh, no need to translate I know French. When is it?
"But if you’re normal size, that means I’m not, and I’m normal size, so you must not be.” She started to laugh, but had to turn away to cough into her arm. Right, laughing was not a good thing when you were hacking up a lung. She turned back to him with a sheepish grin on her face. “Sorry about that.. I almost forgot I was sick for a second there.”
Lola wrapped her blanket clad arms around him, resting the side of her head against his chest. She was still shivering, even with his warm arms around her, but she was determined to not let this stupid fever get the best of her. She took a deep breath and closed her eyes, relishing in the moment. “Thank you”, she said, voice barely above a whisper. “I really, really appreciate it.”
"But I am!" Max insisted laughing softly. "Maybe we’re both normal size on different parts of the planet?" He questioned, jokingly, before concern crossed across his features. "Don’t be." He replied shaking his head. "I forgot. I shouldn’t make you laugh." And to be honest Max did forget, but he’d make a conscious effort to remember.
He wrapped his arms around her tightly, rubbing circles on her back in a soothing movement. It had been a while since he last stood like that with Lola, with anyone in general and it was nice. It reminded him of the good times. “You’re welcome, but let’s get you on the couch. It’ll be more comfortable for you.” Max said softly, separating himself from the other.
Yeah, but if you really don’t like yourself, you should do whatever it takes to make yourself happy.
If you don’t like yourself, you should try to.
“No need to be so shy. If you insist I’ll start then. I am not really picky yet, I tend to stick with men.”
"This isn’t something I usually discuss. So, I apologise for being shy."
Wow. That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. You’re going to wait till you’re old to have fun? This is the best time to do all the dumb shit you’ve always wanted to do.
But I haven’t even wanted to do dumb shit
As much as you wish me to be an idiot I’m not and can tell you are, but maybe you should talk to a book or something might help you out.
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. I don’t need to talk
Yeah, but where’s the fun in that? Don’t you ever feel like letting loose?
No. I have time after university to do that.
Says who? God, you’re so boring. It’s not even that big of a deal. Besides, by saying you didn’t wait aren’t you briefly discussing it?
Yes, briefly and now the discussion is coming to an end. Some people just like to keep things to themselves.
