Prompt Used: I hate to tell you this but…
Song Used: The Opposite Side of The Sea by Oren Lavie
“I hate to tell you this but you’re actually pretty plain.” Artemis said out of nowhere.
She was laying on her bed, upside down as Seita busied himself by mending Artemis’ ripped clothes.
“Hm? What do you mean by plain?” He asked, raising an eyebrow as he continued to mend her shirts.
Artemis thought a bit. She originally wanted to see how he reacted to that statement, but now she wants to push his buttons.
She smirked, hiding it behind her clasped hands that were resting on her mouth.
“Well, if you’re not plain, you’d be doing all the stuff I ask you to do.”
“But I do not understand, I do the tasks you ask me to do..!” Seita exclaimed, finally putting the sewing down.
Artemis put on an act, shaking her head as she sighed heavily, and a bit exaggerated.
“When I say all the stuff I ask, I mean everything.”
“Yes!” Artemis exclaimed, suddenly grabbung the side frame of her bed, swung her legs up and a second later, she was doing a handstand using the sife frame for support. She kicked her legs carefully down to the floor and stood up gracefully as she pushed herself away from the frame.
“Alright, what task do you want me to do?” Seita asked, raising an eyebrow suspiciously.
“Hmm… Good question!” The redhead replied as she walked her way to her closet.
Artemis’ room was fairly large, it would pass off as a master bedroom if there wan’t one already, a room even bigger than hers.
The spacious room was painted bright orange, with containers and small boxes of watch parts, random screw and bolts along with gears, placed randomly throughout.
The bed had a smooth metal frame with the mattress being covered with a lime green bed comforter and huge, puffy pillows.
After a minute or so, Artemis came back with her school bag, placing it on her bed.
“I want you to… help me do my homework.” Artemis said, turning to face Seita.
He stood up in response, and put his hands on his hips. “Are you sure you want me to… help..? It looks something more than that.” Seita replied with a slight frown.
Artemis smiled innocently. “What? It’s just a task, and you need to do every single task in order to not be plain.”
Seita gave her a hard stare, glancing at the papers she had in her bag then glanced back at her.
“Artemis, if you think I’m going to do your homework for you just so you can deem me “not plain”, I will NOT do it.” He declared, crossing his arms.
“What?! But whyyyyyyy??” Artemis whined.
Seita rolled his eyes, walking over to her and flicked her forehead.
“Ow! What was that for??” Artemis whined again, rubbing her forehead.
“Stop being lazy and do your own work.” He scolded, getting back to sewing as he sat down.
“Come on Seita! This is Chemistry! I only want you to do it this once! I won’t ask anymore!”
Seita glanced over, shook his head, then went back to sewing.
Seita shook his head again.
Seita threw down his current project and let out a heavy sigh as he stood up.
“Artemis, you need to understand this material. Just because you have me does not mean that you can get out of studying and doing your homework. You can’t take the final for Chemistry if you don’t even know what’s it asking. Besides,” Seita tossed Artemis’ pants at her face, to which she took them off and huffed. “If you’re too lazy to do something as simple as homework, then you’d be a chicken.”
Artemis stood up just as he said that. “Chicken?! Who are you calling a chicken?!?!”
Seita smirked, holding out the paper in front of her face.
“You will be one if you don’t man up and just do your work.”
Artemis growled and snatched her homework away, going over to her desk and began to work on it.
“I’m no chicken… I’m not lazy…” She grumbled under her breath as Seita secretly grinned, continuing to mend her clothes.
