Papaya #4

Author: Regret
Rating: PG
Story: Arkadian
Challenge: Papaya #4 - Have It Your Way
Extras: Pocky
Word Count: 100
Summary: Arkadiy drops everything for a personal grudge; Vanya disapproves.
Notes: Comes a bit before Papaya #8 (You'll Never Get Away With This!). Almost thought my laptop was going to eat this one too... thankfully (for me, anyway), this one I could rescue.

She's angry with him and he can see why, but he has no intention of changing his mind.

"You cannot! It is too irresponsible!"

"I have to." He tries to keep his voice reasonable: it's not her fault.

And she knows it. "You cannot jeopardise this mission any further!"

"It's not this mission I'm-"

"Not just that, Captain Olenov, but your career-"

"Screw my career!" The words are harder, harsher than he wanted.

She looks like he slapped her. Her gaze slides away; she frowns. "Have it your way."

Last bridge burned; he has to leave. Havoc needs to suffer.

Aww! Hopefully she will get worried and come after him... or be so mad at him she decides to come after him ;)

I like this! So much said in so few words.

Aaaa thank you! I find it a challenge to write in 100 words, so that makes me very happy! ^^

Arkadiy, this won't end well. At all. Vanya knows it, why don't you? I love this: there's so much in so few words, with so little description. It's all in the dialogue.

He's so single-mindedly obsessed on this one subject, it's too close to his heart so he never listens to reason...

Thank you! Dialogue is a big weakness of mine so that makes me feel a bit better! ^^

I really wanna drag Arkadiy back towards Vanya and apologize for everything. But seriously, he sounds quite interesting--I just wonder how Vanya will deal with this now.

Ah, I'm with you on that! There are times when the boy could really use a slap - it's been a long time coming, haha.

I think I'm quite curious about how Vanya will deal with it too... eheh. I can only see the aftermath in my head so far, not how I get to that stage, so I think I'm quite looking forward to it!
