“First date. Where should we go? Restaurant, movies, or hang out at my place?” – Skyler
“All of the above. I‘ll get takeout and we can watch a movie at your place.” -Lavie
“Genius. Qdoba?” -Skyler
Fifteen minutes later, Lavender arrived.
“Ok, should we watch a movie or just continue Steven Universe ‘cause I’ve been really enjoying that,” Skyler asked.
“Let’s watch… Steven Universe,” Lavender decided
3 episodes in, Lavender leaned in and said “Watch closely. This part’s important”
“You watched without me?!” Skyler yelled, hitting Lavender with a pillow and giggling. “You can’t do that! It’s relationship 101!”
Lavender picked up a pillow and started hitting them back. Eventually, they both sat back down on the bed, snickering. It never occurred to either of them that this was called a ‘Honeymoon phase’, and it wouldn’t last forever.
