The Homeroom Hustle

The fact Fate and Nanoha are dating is out of the bag at Seishou. Nanoha's mom is also way too excited about this news too. A misunderstanding and accidental revelation leads to a tender moment!

Fate T. Waldia 2019-01-15 06:33:48 102701
Fate T. Waldia is sitting in home room, before class starts proper- all in her school uniform- that sailor suit like affair with the sailor collar and the scarf. She is sat to the side as class has not started yet and she wishes to find out from Nanoha if she had the talk with her mother.

Yes, Fate meant what she said. If Nanoha doesn't do it by the end of today- Fate is going to come and visit and tell Nanoha's mom exactly what she told Nanoha-- that she loves Nanoha, Romantically! (kind of thing.). Nanoha probably does not want Fate to do this.

Regardless, she's waiting patiently. Sometimes looking down at her phone and sending a text to Runealy or to Hinote or Gao or.. any of the other Waldians really. She has her regular neutral expression however.

This is not a new thing. Luckily her personality does not match her resting face as much anymore.
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-01-15 06:49:32 102702
Nanoha Takamachi crawls into class. In a light manner that is uncharacteristic. She did not come in with her usual friends. Like she was avoiding everyone. Uncharacteristic still, she hasn't said bright hellos to anyone. Nope. No one, nada. She eyes Fate and swallows a moment and slides into her chair directly behind her.

"H--hi Fate-chan!" she says with a wide and nervous smile. Nervous, shaky yes. "I.. um..."

"I told mom.. don't worry..." she says settling a bit in her chair. "I promised. So I did it!" she says. "uh-huh.... yup...! I... did it..." she trails off as she swallows.

Why does it look like she is either lying or there's more to the story.
Fate T. Waldia 2019-01-15 06:55:54 102703
Fate T. Waldia smiles widely as Nanoha enters, but something seems off, which causes her to be suspicious. "...Nanoha?" she asks with a series of blinks. Blink blunk blinp! "You're acting odd." she says, eyes narrowing just a little as the blonde twintailed girl leans forward over the back of her desk's chair.

".....Are you sure you did?" she asks. "You don't sound really convinced in either direction. Did she hear you? Did you say it too quick?" she asks with an almost dissapointed look.

"Do I need to tell her more slowly myself?" she asks with raised eyebrows. Yes, she's making the threat again! "If not... then. What is wrong, Nanoha?" she asks with more concern.

A pause, a small frown. "...Did she. Not approve?" she asks softly.
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-01-15 07:00:30 102704
Nanoha Takamachi swallows. "---Ah. It.. I did tell her, Fate..." she says quietly. "I promise I did." she says quietly. "I told her that... I liked you a lot... that I loved you... that.. that we we're dating... !" she says with wide eyes. "....Dad... was happy." she says softly.

"...I... um...." she looks around and then leans forward. "I think Mom accepted too much...." she mutters.

"....She showed me a sketch for a wedding cake!." the teenager said. "With little sketched figures too!" she says as she sinks in the chair.

"I didn't think... it was possible... for mom to be overly accepting." she mutters with a harder blush.
Fate T. Waldia 2019-01-15 07:15:35 102705
Fate T. Waldia listens with intent in her eyes. Nanoha told both parents? Good! She only asked she tell her mom- it makes her smile to hear that she told both. Her dad was fine with it? Also good- she expected that much. Then her mom was happy?.. wait...

Too happy? Fate narrows her eyes. Was Nanoha bamboozling her so she wouldn't check? She thinks very hard about this as she taps her bottom lip- then her eyes widen and she looks to Nanoha.

"...O..oh." she blushes finally. "I... see." she says. Yes, she believes this happened now. Nanoha kept her promise...

...and the result was not what she expected. "I'm not going to be able to visit very soon again, am I?" she asks. Not worried or upset. A little frazzled over this result. She looks at Nanoha for a response.
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-01-15 07:20:39 102706
Nanoha Takamachi. "...I mean. Not unless you don't wanna hear mom squeal in glee about it? And make sure we're about arms reach from one another because she's afraid we're constantly smooching now!?" she says with wide eyes. "So maybe... a month? Give her enough time to absorb it..." she says, still sunk into the desk chair.

There's another student or two watching now the discussion. It isn't loud- but those nearby can hear it.

Fate-- the newer student, and Nanoha--- an item!? It's scandalous rumors to discuss. They're smooching all the time! Nanoha's mom said so! I heard it directly from her!

Oh dear.
Fate T. Waldia 2019-01-15 07:28:46 102707
Fate T. Waldia listens with a slight blush at that. Nanoha's mom thinks they kiss all the time!? S--she only really kissed Nanoha-- twice? Maybe. If she was hopeful it was twice! She sort of looks away a moment then back at Nanoha. "...Why would she say that... do you want to kiss me a lot, Nanoha?" she asks with wide eyes. No honorific. Scanadlous on it's own. Combined with that question?

Oh dear all the rumors x2.
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-01-15 07:31:09 102708
There's a giggle nearby before Nanoha can answer. Oh. Oh people are nearby... people listening to---

Her eyes widen as she blushes fiercely as she stares at Fate like a deer in headlights. She stands up and runs away from the desk and into the hallway. Not a word.. not a statement. Not even a telepathic message via device.

What just happened!? There are people gossiping in a small group now a few tables over. Maybe talking about this so openly wasn't a good idea!
Fate T. Waldia 2019-01-15 07:41:28 102709
Fate T. Waldia looks over to the group and gives them the ice queen stare. The same kind she'd given Nanoha and all the people who are friends now when she first met them and they'd try to speak to her. This hopefully causes them to rethink their current topic of discussion.

It does. Boy does it. Fate stands up and begins to chase after Nanoha. "N--Nanoha!" she calls out. "Stop, please!" she calls out as she runs down the hallway-- into the locker area which is mostly empty by now- given that many people are now waiting in their homerooms for class to start.

She'll catch up to Nanoha. "N--nano-chan..." she says. "Please?" she asks softly. "I wanna talk..." she says. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to say something embarassing here..." she says looking down.

"It-- I mean the question. Sincerely. I was not trying to.... embrass you. I forgot for a moment. Where we we're..." she trails off.
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-01-15 07:50:52 102710
Nanoha Takamachi stops in the locker area and just rests her head against a wall when she's asked to stop. Fate chased her. This doesn't surprise her. She is blushing. She's a little embarrassed. She's nearly in tears. She sniffs and wipes her eyes.

"I know Fate-chan..." she says quietly.

"I just forgot... there we're people nearby... and we don't... really tell... or.. broadcast... that kind of relationship..." she says quietly. "At school." indeed. They are close at school-- but never more so than good friends.

That just changed. The whole homeroom knows by now thanks to that.

She does move to wrap her hands around Fate-- and give her a tight embrace. "I'm sorry... I didn't know what to do... so I ran... ehehe... I know..."

"That isn't like me..." she says softly.
Fate T. Waldia 2019-01-15 08:11:55 102711
Fate T. Waldia still looks guilty-- until Nanoha embraces her. It takes her just a second to wrap her own arms around Nanoha and return the embrace. "...Nano-chan..." she says quietly- in the silence of the locker room.

"....I wanted so bad to be your friend.... when my mother... was still alive. When I was still... helping her." she says. "--but I felt it'd hamper my abilities to make my mother smile. That my mother wouldn't approve..." she says even more quiet.

"-she would not smile for me. But you smile for me..." she says softly. "Runealy, Hino, Gao and Valeria smiled for me..." she says.

"I didn't even need to try for that." She says with just a little, ever so small smile. She looks down a moment, towards Nanoha's shoulder from her prespective.

"When I close my eyes. I hear your voice calling to me. All those times. I wish I listend to them, Nanoha..." she says. "I wish I took your hand. I wish I would have asked you to take me away." she murmurs to her. "-because I'd realized those confusing feelings about you sooner. Because I'd be happier sooner." she says ever so quietly--- as a hand reaches up to stroke at Nanoha's right twintail.

"There's so much I'm still not sure of about myself, Nanoha-chan. You've heard that from me before. But there are things I know...." she says quietly as she leans her head in towards Nanoha- eyes looking square into hers now.

"...I know Fate T. Waldia loves baking... I know she loves her sister and her Waldian friends... and---" she gently touches her lips to Nanoha. Not a long kiss. A touch and go. Nothing long here. Not in school. Not in the locker room.

"---she loves Nanoha Takamachi. Romantically." she says as she leans back. "-and-- she most certainly doesn't care."

"What the kids gossip about. Because she knows the truth... and.. Fate T. Waldia..."

"Doesn't care if her girlfriend wants to 'smooch'..." you can almost hear the quotes. Like it's a time she doesn't use a whole lot. "...her a lot." she says with a sweet smile as she can muster on her soft face.
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-01-15 08:28:29 102712
Nanoha Takamachi listens to Fate. Before she can answer... Fate is kissing her again. This causes her to blush. All their kisses have been Fate starting it. She feels guilty. But she also doesn't want to take advantage of Fate figuring herself out.

...But Fate's clearly figured her things out. She closes her eyes and takes a short breath and leans forward and gives Fate her own soft- quick kiss. Leaning back and blushing a little.

"...I have been wanting to kiss you a lot sometimes." she quietly admits. "...I've ... not wanted to take advantage of your feelings though Fate..." she says quietly. "Because I know you're still figuring out who you are-- and I don't want to force things on you. Or make you feel obligated. Or put you on the spot in school.... or---" she just shakes her head.

"I just don't want to drive you away by accident, Fate-chan.... because...."

"When I close my eyes all I can see. Are those red eyes. Looking so sad... and I can hear myself calling to you... but you never answer back...."

"But when my eyes are open!.... I see your shining face... without the sadness in your eyes. How I wished to see them.. and...." she just trails off into an incomprehensible blush.
Fate T. Waldia 2019-01-15 08:30:39 102713
Fate T. Waldia shakes her head. "Nanoha-chan... I trust you. If you want to kiss me... It's welcomed." she keeps that small smile. "Always... even when I seem sad. Because! That makes me happy." she says more clearly. She hesitantly releases Nanoha. She doesn't want to. But they're in school....

And now they are late for class despite being there earlier. "Nanoha... let's go. And if anyone gives you any problems today. You let me know." she says crossing her arms and closing her eyes- looking tough.

"I will have a few words with them." and a red eyed glare that would melt through titanium.
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-01-15 08:32:01 102714
Nanoha Takamchi blinks and looks towards the clock. OH NO! THEY ARE LATE!---

She grabs Fate's hand and blushes a moment at this, but tugs her back towards class. Let the rabble mutter about this. She dares them. She's dragging in Fate by the hand! Huff! Yes!

Then been scandalized all they want!
