Guava #25; Malt Shoppe Prompt

Author: Regret
Rating: PG
Story: Arkadian
Challenge: Guava #25 - When Hell Freezes Over; lyndsay's birthday prompt: "I'll never sleep alone".
Extras: Malt, Pocky
Word Count: 100
Summary: Arkadiy remembers a phrase he wishes he'd never said.
Notes: My brain has gone MIA lately. Seriously, I couldn't even remember the phrase shore leave: I had to Google the phrase 'word for sailors on leave'... *sigh*

“You better hope no one ever damages that handsome face of yours,” Shay smiled as Arkadiy ran his hands through the lost cause of his hair.
“Then I’d have to fall back on my charming personality.”
“And then you’d be screwed.” Shay ducked as both a book and a burst of laughter flew his way. “Or, well, not.”
“Don’t worry about me,” the soldier grinned, pulling closed his jacket. “Hell’ll freeze before I spend shore leave alone.”

In his cold house, Arkadiy slumped back against his pillow with a bitter mouthful of beer and wished he’d never spoken those words.

It's a bit of a self-inflicted irony, poor boy... Don't feel too sorry for him though, things do perk up - and he never loses his talent for regrettable phrasing. :3

Aww! Poor Arkadiy! Though he does kind of bring it on himself sometimes. And yay! You have a Shay! =D

Haha, yes, he does. You'd think he'd learn, wouldn't you? XD;;

Yep, I have a Shay. XD Although technically that's his surname. >_>;; I've never been able to get him to answer to 'Addis'...

Oh no. :( That's so sad. Poor Arkadiy needs a cuddle RIGHT NOW.

Haha, he does. Unfortunately, the woman he wants to give him that cuddle is, at this point, not much inclined to do so - and he'd never admit anything was wrong anyway (not like she doesn't know...). He's too stubborn for his own good. =__=;;

Ouch. Yeah, Arkadiy, you probably brought that on yourself. Poor guy.

Yes, he did rather bring it on himself. XD He could be pretty arrogant when he was younger... But it will get better for him! (Soon... well, eventually...)
