A/N: Hey guys! Here’s an extract from the IllyanaxRoberto story I promised a while back! It’s about the school’s Halloween Ball, and Roberto being kind of confused about his and Illyana’s relationship status. If you’re interested, the link to the whole story will be at the end of the post.
Roberto reached the door leading down to the club
room on autopilot. He only pulled out of his thoughts when it came time
to walk down the stairs. The club room was ajar, and he heard laughing
from inside. When he walked in, he found Illyana seating behind the
computer, as usual, working on editing their movie. Sam, Dani, and Rahne
were seating around one of their tiny sets, talking. They were almost
done shooting their short film, but the last few sets needed to be
finished before they could continue.
“Hey, where were you?” Rahne asked as Roberto walked into the room and closed the door behind him.
“Finishing my lunch,” he said with a frown as if there could be another answer.
Illyana stretched her arms and stood up, picking up her bag.
“Take over, I have to go to class.”
She walked past him and gave him a look. That
look. It was like an intense kiss in the rain. It hurt Roberto’s heart
so much, but in a good, lightening sort of way. Every time it made him
want to pull her back to him and kiss her fiercely. Every time she was
already gone before he could snap out her spell. Roberto swallowed
thickly and went to sit by the computer. He was still holding the
tickets in his hand. He went through his bag, looking for his wallet, to
store the tickets safely away.
“What’s that?” Rahne asked because nothing ever evaded her.
“Nothing,” Roberto replied quickly.
Sam and Dani looked his way, and Sam said:
“Tickets for the ball?”
“Well, yeah, you have to have a ticket to get in, don’t you?”
“Yeah, but two tickets…” Sam trailed off.
There was a moment of silence and Roberto tried to focus on his work, hoping the others would let it go. Dani didn’t.
“Are you gonna ask Illyana to go to the dance with you?”
“Why? Are you gonna make fun of me?”
“No, I just think it’s romantic.”
