Papaya #25

Author: Regret
Rating: PG
Challenge: Papaya #25 - The Last Word
Extras: Pocky
Word Count: 100
Summary: Sometimes, just when Arkadiy feels just a little closer to Paradigm, the pilot has to go and ruin it.
Notes: Funny what pops into your head on a sunny day, isn't it?

“You know, I never had you down as being 37.” Paradigm broke the silence without turning toward him.

“Really?” Arkadiy studied his companion’s profile. His lone eye was locked on the window and it was clear that he wasn’t looking at the view. The longing etched on his face told the soldier that he was staring at the spacescape of his mind.

“Yeah.” Paradigm stretched his arms above his head and yawned widely. “First thought you were in your mid-forties.”

The half-smile froze on Arkadiy’s face. He had to hand it to him: just for once he’d left him speechless.

Oh between them there's been several nice moments that've gone right out the window. I'm sure they exist to trip up one another, I can't decide whether I love it or hate it. XD;

I'm glad it made you laugh! :D

*laughs* I'm sure 'Kadiy'll get revenge though. You can't let something like that go unavenged, right?? *g*

Thank you. :) They seems almost constantly engaged in one-upmanship, it definitely keeps me on my toes!

ROTFLMAO!!! =D

Love this so much! Classic! Though, definately in need of some payback ;) So great to see you (and Arkadiy) back, by the way =D

Oh payback will occur, but somehow between the two it's just devolved into a cycle of "you did this, I do that". I blame Arkadiy. He got things off on a bad footing when he tried to strange Paradigm after Paradigm saved him from a rather unfriendly Android... *sighs* (Of course, Paradigm shouldn't look so much like Havoc, then we'd be fine...)

I'm glad you like it though. :D There may indeed be more Arkadiy, he's started fidgeting in the sunlight now.
