"Lucy, I've been meaning to ask you something." The blue haired male finally spoke up. Lucy was silently thankful for his sudden question, finding the silence in the room unbearable. She enjoyed whatever time the two could get to speak, but it seems as of late he had been a bit distant. She was finally able to get alone time with him when the others volunteered him to help her with organizing books at the library. Nodding to acknowledge he may proceed with his question, she noticed him eyeing something behind her. When she turned around, she didn't see anything but a shelve of nonfiction books. As she turned to him, she finally noticed how close he had gotten to her. Not being one to having anyone close to her, save Tomoyo and Theo, she was a little nervous.
"You still wear this?" He reached to the back of her head and tapped the hair clip she had behind her. She lightly sighed, but nodded nonetheless. It was a gift from Theo on her 15th birthday. The day she confessed her feelings for her best friend. The day she was rejected. The day her heart broke. Even though she was saddened, she could never be mad at him or hate him. She still treasured his gift, and wore it ever since then.
"Well it was a gift, Chrom." She lightly smiled. "Besides it looks beautiful."
"Hm..." He hummed before turning away.
"Does it bother you?" She eyed him.
"...No." he turned away, his face turning a light shade of red.
"Is it because you think part of me still holds feelings for Theo?" She lightly chuckled, and she failed to notice how he lightly twitched at the suggestion. Getting back to her job, she placed a book on a shelve.
"Chrom, you don't need to worry about me anymore." She assured him. "My feelings for him are nonexistent. Though, it's very sweet of you to worry. You always were looking out for me. Thank you."
"Y-You don't need to thank me." He stuttered as he adjusted his scarf. The tips of his ears turning a hue red along with his face. He was so busy looking elsewhere, he didn't notice the red hue on Lucy's cheeks or the gentle smile her lips formed.
