“Oh fine, I’d definitely give chase for you,” Miah relented with a playful glint in his eyes and a smile playing on his lips.
As much as it might surprise someone, he wasn’t a costume person, not really. So what he had opted to go with was about as much of a costume as he’d ever be caught dead in. Which was kind of exactly what he had told Ellie earlier that evening when he’d been getting ready. Why exactly was he focusing on his attention on this thought anyway? Taking another drink from his cup, he tried to forget the moment earlier in the apartment when he had caught himself watching Ellie change. The ease in which the two of them lived together, comfortable with all aspects of sharing space was kind of nice, but it was also leading to a few awkward moment for Miah – only awkward because he didn’t want to be that creep who took advantage of Ellie’s trust in him and ogled her when he knew damn well he shouldn’t.
“Because you ca – ouch,” his reply was cut off when she pinched his arm, granted it hadn’t hurt, he still played up his reaction anyway. Amused more than anything. “We drink because we can.” He amended.
You’ve always been easy to love. She didn’t mean I the same way he did, and yet it still created this warm feeling inside of him – or maybe that was just the booze – no, it was definitely her words.
Tipping his glass back and downing the remaining contents, he took a moment to try and organize his thoughts. “I’m only easy with all of those things ‘cause you’re kind of amazing.” His reply probably only made sense to him, which was a clear sign he was drunk.
Although could a person be drunk and still be able to acknowledge they were drunk? Shrugging his shoulders, he let that thought go and instead smiled down at Ellie. “You’re amazing, Lo,” he paused a moment before adding. “Like seriously amazing….” It was more of a ramble than a clear sentence, and as he spoke he found himself leaning closer and closer to her, mere inches away from her now.
