Hattie stammers and shuffles her feet. It was no secret, at least to her, that Klavier was drop dead gorgeous….but she was sure he was only teasing her. No one as pretty as him would be interested in a jumpy, dumpy fangirl like her…..would he?
"t-t-t-thank you….m-m-mr Gavin…I….I am f-f-flattered that you would consider my feelings…." she mumbles, certain that at any moment he’d start laughing.
He smiled, letting a small puff of breath out through his nose. “Any time.” He stuck his hands in his back pockets, rocking on his heels.
"Hey… would you mind terribly if I asked you to accompany me for coffee later today? Maybe grab something to eat, too?"
OH MY GOD HE’D ASKED HER OUT OH MY GOD OH MY GOD.
Her face flushed bright red as she stared at him, her eyes wide with surprise. Though she souldn’t have been, it wasn’t like they hadn’t been out together before….but she assumed he’d been bored and wasn’t interested in doing it again. After a pause she nodded firmly.
"I-I-I-I-I would like that v-v-very much!" she stammered, managing to smile. This was a good sign. A very very good sign!
