You follow Loligo down the beach with your much lighter load. It sure is hot. You arnt used to the sun beating down on you and they jeans and long sleeved shirt isnt helping. Once you make it to the mouth of the cave you carefully take the items back that Loligo has helped you carry.
“th4nks bro! i g-got it from h3r3.”
You slowly walk into the cave. You dont want to seem to exited about meeting Auter because that would make you look uncool but really you can barely hold your excitement.
“h3llo 4nyon3 h-hom3?”
You watch the new female troll carefully, curious to see how she’ll react to Auter.
At the sound of Nequeo’s voice (you’re sure it’s her, because what other female troll would be calling at your door?), you tense, the take a deep breath. You have to force yourself to relax and seem confident. You know that if you don’t make a big deal out of your appearance, she probably won’t either. It’s just… kind of hard.
You’re wearing your best coat, the one you usually save for when you have to go into town, because Nequeo is expecting you to behave at least somewhat like a typical highblood; you feel like you’re obligated to at least dress up for the occasion. Your usual coat is pretty plain, but this one is actually pretty elegant; you made it yourself, as you do most of your things, and the buttons down the front are pearls that your harvested from oysters by hand; the edges of the collar are decorated with silver filigree and have bits of brightly colored shells set in them. You hope she’ll be impressed. Though… you do have to wonder why you’re so determined to impress her; you never felt like this when Teppeu visited.
After a moment to collect your thoughts, you step out into the hallway. You can see her silhouetted in the entrance of the cave, with Loligo just a bit behind her. Trying to suppress your nervousness, you smile and wave at her.
“Uhm, hello, Nequeo!” you call, heading her way. “Welcome to my, uhm, hive!”
“o-oh th3r3 you 4r3!”
You walk closer to the sound of his voice and once you are a few feet away you peek out from behind the pile of junk in your hand. As soon as you see him your eyes grow as wide as sausers and your arms go limp, causing you to drop everything in your hands along with your jaw. He is the coolest think you have ever seen in your entire life! You stand there stuned for a second before you realize just how much you have fucked up. Once you snap out of your stupor, a blush spreads over your face.
“o-oh FUCK… im s-so sorry!!!”
You quickly drop to your knees and pick up all the shit you’ve dropped. Thankfully you dont think you’ve broken anything but you sure as hell screwed everything up…
“O-oh, uhm, it’s, uh, okay! Really! Uhm, nothing broke, did it?” you say apologetically, bending to help her pick up the things she dropped. You really hope nothing’s broken, because it would be all your fault for surprising her like that. “I, uhm, really should have warned you, I, uhm, I guess.”
“oh no bro n-nothngs b-brok3n… i-its not y-your f4ult. i j-just ov3r r34ct3d…”
Once you pick up all over your belongings you stand back up. You try to hide most of your face behind the pile so you dont show how embarrassed you are. What a bad first impression… You take this chance to actually look him over a little more. Hes wearing such and elegant outfit wile your just wearing the same ol’ long sleeve v-neck, purple jeans, and dirty boots. Not to mention most of your clothes are soggy with sea water. You feel as though you have under dressed.
“im s-sorry bro… you 4r3 just s-so FUCKING cool l-looking i couldnt h-h3lp mys3lf…”
Now it’s your turn to blush. She thinks you’re cool? That’s so exciting!
“Oh, but, uhm, I’m really not cool at all! I, uhm, I think you’re pretty cool, Nequeo! Uhm… uh, can I, uhm, help you carry some of that? We can put it in one of the living areas. I think the big one is, uhm, pretty clean, and my, uh, movie projector is in there, so…”
“ok4y. j-just l34d th3 w4y!”
You figure most of the blush from your face is gone now and theres no need to hide so you hand him some of the junk from your hands. You notice the blush on his face and giggle. You guess you didnt really need to hide behind that junk because he was doing the same thing.
