[PP-F1] Being Normal

Recommended Posts

Jade smiled weakly, it wasn't a real smile, it was a mask that hide her worry. Enna thanked her for the hug. What was it that people say when they are thanked? She contemplated. Oh, right! "Y-your welcome..." Jade listened carefully as Enna went on. She sighed when he said "...meet once outside of this game..." She didn't think there was an escape, she thought this is what her life had lead up to, a dead end in a video game that probably killed the entire industry for future VRMMO company's. But one word, a single word, broke her concentration. "...a date or two by now." Jade was only half listening at that point, preoccupied keeping her thoughts at bay. "W-what did you s-say?" Jade asked for clarification, her face starting to turn red. She stared down Enna's infectious smiled, resisting the temptation to smile herself. She was to nervous to smile at the moment.

Enna looked at Ghost as they asked for clarification about what they said and Enna thought a bit back to what they said, "I thought you heard me, A date. You know what that is right, were two people go for dinner with each other, to know each other better," Enna said holding his finger to his chin to think a bit, "A bit Like this I would say, If you want you can ask me a question and then I ask you a question," Enna said smiling wanting to get a better look on Ghost and her personality. This was more of Enna's thing to get information about people and they did like a good story as well, The more you know a person the better you could be there for them at hard times. "But I would say one thing, Something Like this can be seen as a D-A-T-A  for sure, Just missing the food and drinks, that is all," Enna said a bit teasing way, before realizing what he did, "Sorry Teased a bit there, I normally tease people for fun," Enna said smiling trying to make it sound normal for Enna to tease people. "I give you permission to Hit me if I tease you Jade, But only you can hit me if I tease okay!" Enna said holding out his arm to suspect to be hit by Ghost.

Isn’t a date supposed to be when two star crossed lovers do stuff together romantically? Jade was confused. The way Enna is making it sound is like a simple get together but with food, does he even known what the word “date” means? Jade stayed silent, unsure of what to say. She was both confused and nervous, which is never a good position to find yourself in. She felt like she was playing a game but she didn’t know the rules. Jade’s face turned red as he teased her, she laughed nervously. “Hehe… I-I wouldn’t, put it quite like that.” Jade said, looking away shyly. “I-I mean, a date is for p-people invested in e-each other, romantically a-and, we’re not…” Jade continued, hoping he would catch onto what she was saying. “E-even then, a date isn’t just dinner, it can be anything really, as long as the couple do it together. So technically in the right circumstances, this can be considered a dat-” Jade cut herself off. What am I saying? This isn’t a date at all! Jade’s face turned bright red. “H-hit you?” Jade asked. “Why would I?” Jade said, tilting her head for a moment. Not only that, she didn’t want the icon above her head to turn orange just because someone literally asked for it.

Enna started laughing as Ghost tried to explain to him what, a date was and when Ghost was about to miss spoke he smiled and finished her words, "Considered a Date," Enna said in a teasing way before falling over from laughing. He stopped and looked up to the tree again, "You can hit me if I tease you too much, I tease quite a lot so just a warning I don't have my limits on teasing," Enna said smiling putting his hand in the air and making a fist of it, "I tease people who are easy to tease, meaning everyone for me," He said sitting up from the ground and looking at Ghost Thinking of something to say, "hey... Jade you know I'm for sure at least 2 years older than you, I'm probely around 20 years old by now. I was 18 when I loaded into the game by now two years have passed at least for us. So are you sure you want to date an older person than you," Enna said smiling trying to get a bit of tease off as well.

Jade attempted to hide herself underneath her hair, using it as a form of curtain. "...H-hey, that's n-not funny..." Jade listened to Enna go on about teasing. He must be quite the handful with friends. "I'm nineteen..." Jade began, she took a few breaths. "...and I-I don't know If I want to, d-date, anyone. I-I don't think I k-know how to love after what I-I've been through." Jade said, her voice serious. "I-I just. I don't know..." Jade was at a lost, she didn't know what to say from here, she just sat there and contemplated. Enna wants to be a... Jade thought to herself. But, what good is a couple if one of them doesn't know how to love anymore. She closed her eyes and took a few deep breaths, when she opened her eyes again, they were watery, almost like she was about to cry. Both choices, saying yes and no, both had negative outcomes. If she said yes, they would go along together, maybe she could at least make Enna feel happy? If she said no, she wouldn't get close to Enna and if Jade died, It wouldn't bother Enna as much if they were together. This was a difficult choice for Jade to make, she wanted to go with him, but she didn't want to hurt him if something happened to her. "W-why does this have to be so hard..."

Enna nodded with agreement, "If you don't want to date then let's not, I'm not the type to be claimed by things like that I like to be free and trust me. I'm nowhere near a good guy, I'm a snake. That likes to tease people with everything I can, be it either Emotions or just one word. So no worry about needing to say, Oi Enna I sure want to date, Because what does it get us... I benefit from nothing just having you close. I care about having Information and well small things who don't care. Love is not a written thing In my books as I never truly felt that I loved someone," Enna said being a bit hard on his words. He looks at Ghost and just tilts his head, "Then don't make a choice, I would not benefit from being a Couple, I'm Just making sure as much people survive with my information I get out, maybe make some people on the sideline to help me and well you look great doing that. You want to make people happy, then join me in being an info broker or even being my help in getting information, I would like to have you gather information alongside me, Just as friends nothing more," Enna said sounding quite a bit blunt with his words.

Jade sighed, almost relieved she didn’t have to make that kind of decision. Jade could almost relate to some of the things he said. “Indeed… I haven’t felt love either.” Jade frowned, nor has she been loved by anyone, even by her family. Jade continued to listen, intrigued. She didn’t really like to draw attention to herself, in any form. “I don’t know… It just seems like, a lot of work…” Jade didn’t like doing things she wasn’t interested in if it took to much effort. "...but the friends thing sounds nice." Jade commented, curling her hair around her finger. She opened her menu and pulled out a drink. She wasn't sure what it was, all she knew about it was it was sugary and sweet. Jade began slowly sipping it down. "As an info broker, would you have to talk to people a lot?" Jade asked, she sounded concerned, she usually wasn't very good at talking to people. She knew more about space then she did about other people work. To Jade, people were, strange and unpredictable, though sometimes by chance, she knew a few topics that they had mentioned. Jade finished her drink and opened her menu, pulling out a small booklet, about the size of a piece of folded printer paper. She pulled out a fancy pen and began jotting stuff down.
