He Picked the Wrong Person to Pour His Heart Out To
Who: Mere and Ash
Where: Chloe's Sugar Shack
When: March 30th, Mid-Morning
For a change, Mere was actually up before noon, and was getting her caffeine fix at Chloe's Sugar Shack. While she could make perfectly serviceable coffee at home, nothing beat the stuff they had at the Shack. She had just picked up a Sugar Fairy Shooter and had sat down at a table with it, enjoying its sugary goodness.
"My God... Delany's awake? Is it three o'clock already?" Ash snarked, walking in wearing his usual black suit, slightly longer blonde hair slicked back. While it might seem strange for him to be in a cheery place like this, let's not forget who he's engaged to, ok?
She chuckled. "Hey, I'm usually up around noon, thank you," she said with a smirk. Well, at least she admitted to being a late sleeper. Some things never change from the vampire days. "Why don't you come join me and marvel at the fact that I'm already up for a change, hm?"
"Yeah., You aren't the only one who's 'up'..." He muttered more to himself, walking over to her and sitting down with a grumble.
She smirked at him. "Can men go five minutes without thinking of their dicks?" she said just loud enough for him to hear. "So, what have you been up to lately?"
"You know I usually can! But not when I have hot friends telling me things I probably didn't need to know, ok?" Oh my GOD Ash was actually flailing a little there!
"OK, now I'm totally curious," Mere said, leaning on the table a little as she leaned forward toward Ash. "What are hot friends telling you, anyway?"
"My GOD. I went to check out Neely's new record store, right? And you KNOW how she and I always torment each other..." Was he rambling just a tad here? Hilariously... yes.
"Yes..." With this lead up, this HAD to be hilarious. "Go on before I explode from all the damn suspense."
"Ok. Well. She had to go and tell me your fucking bassist went and gave her permission to have sex with me." Yep. When Ash starts cursing and flailing? Time for hilarity.
Mere seemed to pause on this for a moment before just cracking up. OK, also possibly showing that she was truly moving on from Ash, because, honestly, a year ago? This probably would have had her upset all over again. "Let me guess...Lucy said hell to the no, right?"
"LIKE I'D EVEN ASK HER, MEREDITH? SERIOUSLY?" Yes, he was YELLING. "She'd have a shit fit, probably throw something at me, and lock herself in the bedroom for three hours!"
All the yelling just made Mere laugh harder. "Not shocked there," she admitted, still feeling a tiny bit of inward relief in knowing that it would never actually happen.
"Mere... the worst part is? I don't even really get ATTRACTED to other girls anymore. Ever since I started dating Lucy, you've pretty much been the only other temptation I ever had." He always felt he could talk to Meredith about anything... which was why he chose HER to unload this on. "But there's just... some fucking stupid mutual magnetism between me and Neely. Neither of us can explain, and hell, neither of us really WANT it!"
"Oh good lord," Mere said with an amused sigh. "How hard is it to not fuck people these days? Can't believe I'm the one asking that," she admitted. "This is getting weird for me. ANYWAYS! If you're really worried about it, stop putting yourself in tempting situations or something. That's the stuff I hear."
"Shut the fuck up, Delany!" Ash laughed, blushing hard. "You know I've NEVER been that type! It's not gonna happen. It's just... GAH! It sucks! Why do my best friends have to be two of the hottest bitches I've ever met?!?" Yeah. See.... when Ash gets really flustered? Is when one could TELL who his sister was.
Mere just snorted. "Boo fucking hoo. You're got a sweet piece of ass waiting for you at home and at least two best friends who are hotter than fire. You're life sucks." Then she started laughing.
"...I should know better than to pour my heart out to you. And Meredith? When the sadistic warlock is calling you a heartless bitch? SOMETHING IS WRONG." He raised an eyebrow, 'tsk'ing under his breath.
"Come on! You're life rocks and you KNOW IT! Sure, you've got a bit of temptation on both sides of you, but it's not like anyone's totally PUSHING you to break your sweetie's little heart! Life ain't all that bad and you know I'm saying the truth."
"I know that. And you of ALL people should know I'd never break Lucy's heart. She's my everything. Oh, SURE... if she were to wake up one day and say 'OH HAY ASH! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! GO DO NEELY!' I wouldn't exactly waste a half a second arguing, but still!" You know... it occurred to the mun just now that only Neely and Meredith ever seemed to bring out this very Patience-like side of Ash.
Amusing, wasn't it? "Kinda doubt that's ever gonna happen, sailor," Mere said with a smirk. "Although, if it does, can you tape it for me? Especially if she joins in? Promise not to show it to MY boyfriend."
"If it happens? Babe... I'll let you run the camcorder." Aw. Now THAT was love, right?
Definite love. "Awesome," she said with a smirk. "So, other than possibly causing your dick to explode, how are you doing?"
"I go back and forth. I got a lot on my mind right now... but between Lucy and Neely, I think I'm ok now. How about you? And are you aware that Rachelle now refers to you and Brayden as Beavis and Butthead?" He asked, finding THAT tidbit hilarious. "Because apparently all you two do together around her is stare at her tits and giggle like kids?"
"Hey, when you've got a rack like that, what can you expect other than for people to stare at them, am I right?" Mere pointed out. "Glad that you're doing...well, OK, at least. You know, other than the constant boner now."
"Yeah. Sure. Laugh it up. I have a girlfriend and two friends that pretty much give me natural priapism. Awesome." He said, trying not to laugh, but not exactly succeeding.
She did giggle for him. "Yeah well, I still think you're the luckiest bastard in the world with hot women surrounding you like this. Hell, this isn't even taking into account your Slayer, you know?"
"DUDE! You have no idea! I have to train her, ok? And watch her get all sweaty and bendy while REMEMBERING DAMN WELL what she looks like naked! It's HELL!"
"Wow...maybe your life is hell." OK, still joking, but she did deliver it as straightly as she possibly could. "You really are like, a beacon of hotness, aren't you?"
"I don't get it, babe. I REALLLLLY don't." He laughed, shrugging a little.
"Yeah well, I'd say that I didn't get it, either, but I'm just totally one of your legions of fans following you around," Mere said playfully.
"Again? Don't get it. You're one of the hottest girls I've ever MET. And I'm just... ME." This was NOT Ash fishing for compliments. He honestly didn't get why so many girls dug him.
"It's because you're an animal in bed," Mere said bluntly, then started laughing. "OK, it's certainly not JUST that, but it sure as hell don't hurt, ya know?" Terrible, isn't she?
"I tell you I finally showed Lucy how animal I can be? I know, I know... about time, right?" He laughed, blushing.
"Did you now?" Mere asked, leaning forward a bit. "Now this I've also got to hear. Let's hear about Ash's inner animal."
"Nothing much to tell. I came home one night after hanging with Neely... and Lucy was all vamped up. Like you wouldn't BELIEVE. She was all gothy and wearing lace and leather and just.... GAH." He blushed, looking away.
Mere giggled. "Sounds really hot, actually," she admitted. "And that just brought the crazy animal out in you, huh?" If only she had a tape of that, huh? "Why's she dressing all gothy and shit, anyway? Not that I mind doing the looking or anything, but didn't she used to dress like Skylar and Chloe?"
"No idea, Mere. She was like Mini-Chloe when we met. I think it's a mix of her embracing her inner metal goddess... and having been technically dead." Well, brutal, but honest.
Mere thought on that and shrugged. "Probably a bit of both, yeah." Part of that was a little freaky, but if it made Lucy dress as hot as she does, then she couldn't complain too much about it.
"Maybe it's even part of Brayden's influence. If so, I'm buyin' him a goddamn thank you present, I swear." Hah! Ash actually cracked a big grin there.
Mere laughed. "You buying Brayden a thank you gift is worth SO much that I may tape it when you give it to him," she admitted. The idea of it was SO hilarious to her.
"Yeah, well... Lucy's amped about their band, and she says they really have some good stuff written. So... if Brayden's able to give her that, and not be trying to sleep with her? He can't be all that bad." Holy shit. Was this ASH?
"I told you," Mere said, a little smugly. "You should just trust me on people, Ash. If I tell you someone's not a complete jackass, then I'm usually telling the truth, you know?"
"Very true. And you usually ARE right about people..." Ok, and he started laughing, remembering something. "Is it true you and Brayden tend to just... stare at Rachelle's rack while laughing like Beavis and Butthead?"
"Oh GOD we did that like, once or twice," Mere pointed out. "She shouldn't have such a nice rack and not expect people to stare and it and giggle. And in MY defense, I was drunk."
"Hey. Preaching to the choir. When Lucy introduced us, I had to physically STOP myself from staring." He smirked, blushing. "Yeah, I mighta thought of her a few times that night, not that I'd ever tell Lucy that..."
"I'm sure that Lucy realizes that you occasionally THINK about other people, I think it's more the in an alternate future, you had babies with someone else that freaks her the hell out more than anything," Mere said. "So you can probably stare away."
"True. Between us though... GOD! Neely! Can you even IMAGINE what that must be like?" He started laughing, not really able to have this conversation with anyone else.
"From the noise that they make in their apartment that you can HEAR during the day if you're ever there, I can only imagine," Mere said with a smirk. "It had to of been all kinds of awesome. Too bad for YOU that it ain't gonna happen here, huh?"
"God, I know." He laughed, shaking his head. "Have you SEEN the body on that girl, Mere? Seriously? Jesus, the things I'd do to her..."
Mere nodded. "Seen and totally thought about, even though she'll probably be some sort of in-law in my future." You know...that was probably the first time Mere admitted to the idea of getting married someday. Neat.
