He whispers to the Knight.
"They gonna break up?"
He glances over at the Hedgehog. They met once before when they watched the two get engaged. He didn’t know why the hedgehog was here but he decided to answer him anyway.
"I’m not sure…we’ll have to see how this all plays out."
…You continue to stand there, just staring at her. She looks unhappy… but it’s probably just because you walked in. Your fists clench at your side as you try to stop trembling. You try to swallow the lump in your throat. You have to… you have to… talk… to her.
…How… how do you even… put this? How do you just…?
Roxie… I saw… were… were you…?
…and then you can’t continue. You just start crying again. Way to go. No wonder she likes Marlon better. You can’t even face your problems without breaking down like a baby.
You… you… and Marlon… I saw…
…You’ve never watched your walls so closely before. You’re concentrated. Fixated. Mesmerized in each little crack and corner, invested in the little chips in the paint, staring, almost scowling, daring them to shift and dance in front of your eyes. Your head is spinning, but nothing is moving. Cheren whimpers out of sight. You tell your expression to soften. It doesn’t.
…Look. I don’t know exactly what you saw, but… it was an accident. He said so ‘imself. It… didn’t mean anything.
…Listen, Cheren, I… There’s something I’ve been thinkin’ about… for a while now, actually…

The fuck??? What’s going on?? You have absolutely no clue what’s happening anymore. You’re so light-headed right now you can’t even think straight.
R-really, but, um… Cheren„,? What’re you doing down there? You uh… lose a contact… or something?
Idiot. Why would he be reaching into his pocket, then??? You should’ve just stayed silent!! FuckfuckfuckfuckfuckFUCKYOUFUCKEDUPROXIE
You pull out the ring, gripped tight in your hand…
…..Your hand is shaking as you hold it out. …You can’t help but notice how pathetically small and simple it looks. You could only afford so much on a teacher’s salary…
…It’s certainly not good enough for a rock star.
…You try in vain to keep the tears from forming. You have to go through with this now… There’s no conceivable way to paper over it…
I just couldn’t… wait…
You hold the ring out in full view. …Your hand is shaking.
I know I don’t have much to offer… someone like you… I know I’m… a dork and… and a nerd and… and everything else you’ve ever called me and… it’s all true but…
…I love you, Roxie…
…and if… if that’s enough…
…You force yourself to look up at her so she’ll know you’re very serious about what you’re going to ask her.
…I’d… like you to consider… maybe…
You take a deep breath to calm yourself right before she steps outside to meet you.
…Even dishevelled, she looks pretty. …Especially dishevelled, even…
…I just thought maybe… you’d want to look at… the stars…
You gesture out to the balcony behind you. It’s a beautiful night and the stars are shining brightly. Perfect.
…Kind of reminds me of… Castelia…
…Your hand curls in your pocket.
You wonder why he won’t get his hand out of his pocket. Since his jeans are so tight, you can see a small bulge… is there something in there?
Maybe he’s just happy to see you.
You step out and lean against the balcony, looking up at the sky. Nights sure are clear out in Virbank… You watch them in silence. If Cheren has anything to say, he’ll spit it out eventually.
Watches from afar
…It was you who sent that ask, wasn’t it?
No, it wasn’t. And it just shows that you really don’t know what’s best.
You should always be at your best, not just when you’re on the clock.
…You know what…?? I’ll prove you wrong!! I’M GONNA PROVE YOU WRONG.
Go ahead, we’ll see what happens.
ecstaticshli asked: Oh no! It's Meatball! What's a fatty like you doing here?
YOU STUPID ASHLI. *sighs* I don’t have time for this right now.
…Well then. In that case, I cordially invite you to-
*insert incredibly vulgar insults here*
I warned you.
Hits Cheren upside the head with his sword
