Personality (Flash Fiction)

"Good grades?" Blaze snarked. "Really? You think that he would fall for something that smart? How would you even gain his attention? Your charming personality? I can just see the gossip now. May the heavens rain fire upon my head."

"Shut up!" Skylar blushed a healthy shade of red, resisting the urge to chuck her apple core at her almost-best-friend at the academy. "It's not like you have any better ideas."

"Of course I do and none of them involve humiliating yourself for the sake of some pompous, hot-headed-"

"You barely know him!"

"So do you!"

"...we're not going to get very far on this, are we?"

"You're the one that interrupted my studying for your little love life crisis-"

"You know, Blaze, if you'd just have asked me out in the first place, I would've just said yes and this would be over with." Skylar yanked her study notes of his slack hands and turned away to brace on the lower drawers of the dresser with a huff. "Seriously. It's not like I'm ugly or anything."

Now Blaze blushed an odd shade of purple, his pale silver skin offsetting equally silver eyes. "That has got to be the most backhanded-"

"Well, what are you waiting for?" Skylar interrupted. Her steely gaze bore into him. "Go ahead. Ask me. Or are you waiting on my charming personality to encourage you?"

He asked. She accepted.
