Amber grinned at the small compliment. Coming from the Personification of Rage made that itty bitty compliment that much more meaningful. “Shh it might get jealous if it hears you, but yes I am pretty darn lovable.” She whispered loudly and flashed a cheeky smile as she said the last part. Even if it sounded confident coming out of her mouth and in Amber’s voice, she didn’t truly believe it herself. It wasn’t that she was completely insecure or anything close to that, but the thought of never being enough for someone to actually love her always lingered on her mind. Her hair was dull, her eyes were plain, she hardly does anything exciting and she wasn’t good at anything useful. Her only talent was making hot cocoa and if that was the only thing people loved her for then it would be pretty depressing. She frowned, “You can’t tell me how delicious it was and tell me you didn’t bring any back for me. That’s cruel mom, I would always bring something back for you.” That is, if they even let her go on missions outside of the manor in the first place.
“Well you have a lot to make up for, I’ve been all lonely and bored here.” It wasn’t entirely true, the manor had lots of interesting things that kept her entertained on nights she couldn’t sleep. The problem with moving was having to find new hiding spots and Amber busied herself with that when there was nothing left to do. So far she hadn’t found one yet but that was going to change very soon. “Can we buy marshmallows too? The mini ones,” since that very rude person ate all of them too “and those jumbo ones!” Even after these two years Amber still loved her sweets all the same if not more. Plus, ever since she learnt how to work the fireplace she craved smores and just a perfectly roasted marshmallow. “I’ve always wanted to be a blow fish! It’s a dream come true!” She exlaimed and puffed her cheeks out as big as she could. She got up on her feet and grabbed Lizzie’s hands to pull the girl up too. “While we buy food let’s go shop too. My closet needs some loving I’ve neglected it for way too long.”
“Well you know how I love to make everyone jealous.” She grinned. It was something that always flared up in her when she got something that someone else wanted. Lizzie laughed softly. “There was no time. I might as well fly us there. Or I can just order stuff online. It’s on a website.” She told her. “I’ll make sure we get express shipping.” Lizzie had the means, she always did. Despite even her confidence, she had insecurities like any other girl or woman of her time. Not that it had anything to do with how she looked. She was fully confident she looked appealing to both male and females. “That’s what you get when you sign up with me. I kid. I don’t do cruel and punishment unless you ask for it.” Meaning, someone had to piss her off badly but that hadn’t had happened lately. Even then she tried to calm herself down. It was hard when down to her fibre she was rage. She was always swirling with it. “I know you would, Curly Sue. I just didn’t have time. The damn soldiers were pissing me off.”
“I’ll make it up. I promise. I always make everything up. Don’t I?” She quickly countered back. She laughed softly. “Of course we can buy that. As much as you want okay? I know how much you love your coca. You Cocoa monster. Maybe your slogan should be Coca for hot cocoa.” Making fun of the Cocoa puffs commerical. Lizzie got to her feet, bursting into laughter. “Well then you know people eat blow fish right.” She teased knowing she wouldn’t let anything happen to the younger girl. Not after Drew or anything. She knew what it was like to be left all alone and unaware if you’d hear anyone from anything. That came in the form of her mother. Hope Stuart. It was a roadtrip she would never forget for a various amount of reasons.
“Jeez. Do I look like an ATM?” She questioned but knew it wasn’t a problem as she headed outside and towards her car. Lizzie figured she would use the Porsche, it seemed to be her go to car lately or maybe it’s because she missed Zach. Not that she would let anyone know that. The brunette jumped in, glad that the convertible top was down. Lizzie slipped in the key, starting the engine. She let it warm up for a bit. ”You are so lucky I have my wallet with me. Where do you want to go shopping?” She questioned, not sure where Amber would like to hit. Lizzie was all about the designer. The brunette smiled heading into the town and away from the manor.
Mmm..I just love those days. I’ve been very careful lately. I do love polishing up my skills.
Kay. (/grows quiet for a sec’ while still latching on)
…yeah. I never understood why. You’re so perfect; I don’t know why he does that to you - as if you don’t matter. Pleaseee. Who was the one that ate up Jessie Chubbybottoms and spit her back out when she tried to take our lunch money that one time? Hmm…maybe it’s because I lack the motivation you do. I never saw much use for my powers. Perish the thought. If anything, you’re just more connected to me. After all, both of ours seems to be nature-based. (/lips quiver up into a smile) I’ll try, just for you then. Can’t guarantee though - became a bit of a habit over the years. Woww. That’s a lonnng-ass time. I applaud the both of you for that.
I…(/swallows thickly) never got them. She deleted your number from my phone, monitored everything I did and even changed our number to ensure I couldn’t contact you. I’m so, so sorry you had to go through that, E-bear… But I thought Grams was the decent one out of all of them…?
-shrugs- I won’t ever understand it either. Well thanks. That would be me. Just a bully on the playground. Why not? What are they anyways? It’s what makes us different from others and if I can be powerful enough I think I’ll get the fuck out of here. That’s good to know. Look at us, the nature twins. I hope that doesn’t mean I’ll start going on hikes. Oh will you? So would you like to train with me then? I like it when people can keep up. Thank you, he even gave me this. -holds up the necklace around her neck- A promise ring. We’re pretty serious. It’s been a long since I was in a relationship for this long. What? Really? Um..I know this is gonna come off as bitchy and I do care but..I hate your mom for doing this to us. It’s okay, Tiana, I usually handle these things well. Well she is, but I guess maybe your mom must have said something that she didn’t want to hurt me..whatever it is.
-smiles at her- Isn’t she already? I was going to say. You would make a fantastic mother, Lizzie. I can promise you that. Hey, she thinks I’m her father, so we’re in the same boat. I’m glad she did too. Maybe I can. I was. -smirks- Why doesn’t that surprise me? He’s never sided with any of us to begin with, you know? Oh well, Karma will hit him again. And again. She was. Not really. I was pretty bored.
-nods- True. No, don’t say that. Oh god. I didn’t hear you say that. What did you say? How much you love me? We’ll see about that. It’s Keegan..duh. When doesn’t he do that? He loves drama as much as he loves having sex. I know, I’m not worried. -laughs- How nice of you. Pretty bored with her and the conversation? -jumps on the bed-
Right. Ending the topic. Sorry. Enough with the violence, woman. Jesus. Try pottery like normal people. I just… never knew. Guess we didn’t get to know each other that well while we… yeah.
Sorry it comes natural to me like an action flick. I’d rather not do pottery. I’ll go for yoga or my usual training crap. Maybe I’ll even push myself harder than usual… Yeah, well there’s a lot we don’t know about each other..yeah..well duh. So..what have you been up to besides the lack of sleep?
I love you mostest. -smiles- Well, ya know. No one will ever know. Amber might pick up on it though, I mean, she’s around us enough as it is. Nanook is very cute. -chuckles- Yes he is. I can’t? I’m glad you punched him. I wish I was there to watch it. -raises eyebrow- Scarlett? Seriously? -shakes head- She was flirting with me a few days ago. I turned her down. Chaos and Arrogance don’t get along, that’s for sure. Of course we can, baby.
-smiles- Probably. Then she’ll be convinced that I’m nice…well heck, she already is convinced I’m nice and her mother. Mhm, I’m so glad Luna got me him. Maybe you can’t. I bet you did. -nods- Yeah, well you know he’d side with anyone that probably isn’t supporting Zach, me, Warren, and whoever else he decided to burn bridges with. Oh was she? Must have been fun. Is she as poetic as I think she is? Good.
Hey we’re not fighting right now. How about you just try to get past the issues you have? You live in the same house, avoiding him will work for so long. Since when are you into comic books?
Yeah, yeah. I know. Just shut it. Let’s not talk about it. Yeah but it’ll save me from my fist meeting his face. I have done the occasional read. Something wrong with that. I’m not a big nerd but it’s not something I do often.
Clearly, I’m very good at holding grudges. Gooddd. Because if you let go before I’m through all these feels, I’ll make sure you’re really sorry.
(/sighs softly) What did the old man say? You’ve always been tough, love, even without the powers. No outlet? I don’t want my Lyly to explode from all that fire on the inside; I need her. (/quiet whine) Yeahhh…engrained into me, you know~ Ohh? That hunkalicious guy is your beau? Damn, well, he has good taste, I’ll give him that. Well, she kind of does it to herself. I’m just glad she stopped jumping the gun into marriage or all that money grandfather left her would be all gone by now.
I know you don’t. But I’m glad. At least I wasn’t the only one.
So good at them. I’m not. Just tell me when you want to stop this hugging session.
Nothing which he usually does. He ignores me, Tati. You know that. He doesn’t care for me, he never did and that’s all I wanted. Well I’m glad you think so, I love being a tough bitch. Well training helps which I do or just using my powers always feels nice. I’s weird being connected to mother earth. God, I sound like some peace loving hippie. Well, if you insist on flirting with me, I won’t stop it. I like you way too much. Mhm. That hunk is my boyfriend, he has been for two years. Of course he does, it’s me. Yeah. Of course not..I was worried when you wouldn’t answer my calls. And I just stopped after awhile..because no one would tell me anything. Not even Grams. Not that she cares either.
