John stared forward, he formed a frown and shrugged. His eyes were apathetic and they matched his tone, “I do like a woman with experience.” He then turned his attention back to Hallie with a brighter expression, “There aren’t. Which is why I like traveling up North.” he suddenly got the grand idea to talk his way out of hurting Hallie. “I should probably head out there soon. The weather here is really killing my vibe.” he sounded picky and fed up. “I’m not particularly fond of high temperatures.” he added, raising a brow.
"One drink won’t do you any harm." John smiled softly, staring into her eyes. He couldn’t help it. It was as if his peepers had a necessity of looking into Hallie’s eyes.
John kept his eyes lazily pierced for so long, he had completely forgotten what Hallie was asking him of what he was sure about. What was he supposed to be certain about again? “About what?” he asked rather foolishly before turning his head to the soup sitting on the coffee table. His eyes widened upon his realization then he nodded, “Well, as you know, my stomach can hardly digest anything and I’d love to share. We haven’t gone out to dinner yet but this is a fine excuse.” he said giddily while he smiled brightly. He beamed.
"Television…" John questioned, turning his head slowly to the flashing screen before shaking his head. He grabbed the remote and turned it off before tossing remote aside. "No intruding here. She’s fine with me seeing other girls. We have an open relationship but if you want to keep her on, maybe she’ll treat us to a movie?" he asked her, picking the remote up again.
"Well experience is always good…" she said nodding her head, "Well I’d like to think so anyways." She glanced at him when he mentioned heading up north, "Well the weather here can be quite… depressing, so I don’t blame you." Hallie was never really fond of hot weather either but living in a place like this you ended up getting used to it over time. But just because one got used to it didn’t mean they liked it. Hallie usually kept her own apartment pretty cold and pretty much everyone who’d stepped foot inside complained about it. But she’d rather curl up with a blanket then be sweating from the blaring heat.
"I’m sure one could, which is why next time I’ll be sticking to zero," she said shaking her head. Her eyes moved up to his which stayed there momentarily. She studied their greenish color but something about the way he looked at her was pretty hypnotizing. When he spoke again she snapped back into reality smiling at his response. "Alright, yes, hopefully you’re able to eat something.”
Laughing at his comment she reached for the bag on the coffee table. “Well as long as she’s okay with me being here, I wouldn’t want to cause any trouble between you two,” she said gesturing between John and the television. “She’s gorgeous by the way, you should take her out and show her off a little more.” Hallie stood up off the couch, “Want to tell me where the bowls are and I’ll fix it up for us?”
Oh, [touches her forehead then holds her face] It’s worse than I thought.
17, of course. I feel like the remedy was far worse than the sickness.
How long do I have?
The remedy was hardly worse, it’s made me highly aware of everything around me.
Because, I want my sister to end up with a man who loves her just as much as I do. Better?
Well how very grown up of you. But there is no boyfriend.
You must be positively high. Are you feeling well?
Loaded sounds like you overdosed. How many fingers am I holding up? [holds up three]
I am feeling just dandy right about now.
Hardly an overdose, I am standing just fine and feel like I could run a marathon. And you’re holding up 17 of course.
Being a walking incubation of plague isn’t really living life on the edge, Halles.
Oh but it is.
This is true, but I’d still rather keep it from happening in the first place.
Alright alright I can see you like to live far away from the edge.
Because, maybe this secret boyfriend of yours could bring me some milk.
What can I say? I just know things.
How sick was the poor thing?
I can see that, you’re like a modern day prophet.
Pretty sick, but I loaded myself up on antibiotics afterwards to be safe.
