    She was super excited. Luna and Nix had been planning for her to visit his place for a while. Her heart was racing, and of course not just because he was visiting him. A mix of worry plus excitement with a dash of embarrassment.

    Luna read the last text she sent to him again.

    You seem...busy so uh, is the time still alright at 1:00?
    Read at 12:31pm.

    There were several texts before that she sent that were read by him, but he had given no response to. Of course Luna had assumed he was busy, as students still in school would, but at the same time she was worried. It was still bugging her that Nix just up and left in such a hurry that one evening about a week ago, and so she suspected a little bit that something was up. But she didn't want to assume, so as she stood there in front of Nix's door at the planned time, she sighed and knocked on it. The curtains were closed, but there was a light on inside so he was definitely home.

    God I hope this will go alright...

    Oh good lord.

    It was a bit chilly out, and the coat wasn't helping. It didn't help that Luna had flown there which likely made her face red from cold. She was shivering.

    Nix sighed, phone in hand, lying across the now-immaculate couch. He'd set up a comfortable hangout thing. Cleaned out his junk from the edges of the couch, tidied up the kitchen... but there was something that wasn't quite sitting right with him. Sure, it was clean: but would he be able to stop worrying? To even... well...

    His head darted back to when he did this once before. That had been special, in it's own way, precious and light and good... and look where that had ended, influenced by his own terrible decisions. That had been under pressure, where he prided himself on his decision-making. He wasn't sure if he would freak out like last time... he couldn't really afford to freak out like last time. His Student Council poster from a few years ago was pinned to the wall outside his bedroom, proclaiming Nix was organizaed and enthusiastic and ready to take on a challenge.

    He wished, jeez.

    Why was he even doing this? All his sister had done was done this back-to-back, and look where she ended up - she'd sidled up with human scum from the word "go". Would Luna be like that too? Would he care, and then proverbially just, blammo? Yeah, he liked her, and okay, she was kinda amazing and everything and definitely someone he needed in his life... He couldn't think of a but. Didn't he already go through this in head head, multiple times, over the past week?

    Balling his fists in frustraton, he let out a yell at the wall, tips sparking. Couldn't he just not think this?

    In his anger, he didn't notice the faint knocks on the door, and his yel was probably loud enough tobe heard at least fainlty.

    Suddenly she heard yelling from inside the dorm. Nix's voice. He sounded...frustrated. But the tone of his voice sounded just, but not quite, sad. Knowing him pretty well by this point, Luna doubted he even heard her knock. So she knocked a little harder and faster to get his attention. She yelled quietly as to not disturb the neighboring dorms for Nix to open up.

    "Nix, are you okay in there?"

    Luna seriously hoped she wasn't overreacting. She could already feel her face contorting with worry. Why could he possibly be yelling? Was there someone else inside..? Eh, she doubted that. Could he be yelling in frustration at a game maybe..?

    Would you reeeeally be surprised if he wasn't?

    Of course not, I'm just...

    Yeah yeah I know. Worried and shit like that.

    Do you...oh lord I hate asking this because I feel like I know how you're going to answer...Do you know if there's...something going on with Nix? Like...let's see...have you noticed something that didn't seem right or even just a little odd that I haven't noticed?

    ...Yeah.

    Right...and what would that be?

    Like I would tell you.

    Theeeere it is.

    "Nix, are you okay in there?"

    It was only heard faintly through the filter of the door, but the tapping noises mirrored his heartbeats as he paced around the apartment. God knew when she'd get here. Muffled voices blended into the normal day-to-day of his neighbors' days and he made a frustrated sound that almost sounded strangled.

    "Why can't I just be over this already?"

    In his pacing, he knocked down a binder and sent it tumbling to the floor.

    Luna heard something fall inside Nix's dorm and panicked. What was going on?? WAS someone actually in there? WAS something wrong?
    Not caring anymore if the neighbors heard, she banged on the door. "Nix! It's me, Luna! Please open the door..." she said, while trying to find her phone in her bag...Damn where the hell was it...
    There it was. Luna unlocked it and texted Nix.


    I don't know if you heard me knocking, but I can hear something happening in your dorm. Are you okay? Please, you're worrying me...

    Sent at 1:07pm.


    Dammit Nix come on...Please...

    ...-Sigh-...

    ...How do you give a telepathic sigh, the fuck.

    She shook her head, Nix was more important. WAY. More. Important.

    Sighing at himself, Nix crouched down to grab the binder, hands sparking. This was so stupid. It was just her coming over, and yet he couldn't stop thinking of everything and anything going wrong. Hell, he'd been planning this for a little under a week now. Fuck, what if he'd fucked it up already by psyching himself out? What if she got here early... or late! Did he even tell her the specific time? What if she was lost right now!

    The bangs on the door only irritated him further. He knew something would friggin' come up! Stomping over, he finally swung open the door and yelled at the person there. In his pocket, his phone went bzzzt.

    "What the fuck are you here for? I can't do today! I already told you I have an important date with what might be the actual love of my LIFE" - breath - "that I'm already gonna fuck up without you fucking around in my dorm! And then I'd have two fuckfaces in my dorm until she got he - "

    And then he noticed Jim's abnormally long... black... hair. And his white t-shirt. And the fact that he was an inch shorter.. and curvier...

    FUCK.

    Hand flying to his mouth, his eyes widened in realization and horror. He'd just screamed at his date! He backed away, eyes full of disgust at himself. Talk about ruining a date.

    The door swung open as Luna stepped back from her knock and found herself in front of a screaming, seriously emotional Nix. He was yelling at her..? Why-

    ....date with what might be the actual love of my LIFE-

    W-what??? He...

    -that I'm already going to fuck up...

    He said...

    ...fucking around my dorm! And then I'd have two-

    H-he said...

    ...until she-

    Suddenly, Nix seemed to realize who was in front of him. He almost stumbled backwards. His hand was on his mouth. He looked at her in horror. He looked like he was about to break. Right then and there, in front of her.

    "W-what..? You...what..?" was all Luna could say as she stood there, shocked. She was hurt because of the fact that he yelled at her but...that first line that hit her. It played over and over in her head. He actually... h-holy shit...

    "I... I'm so sorry...!"
    The words were muffled, but the look he gave her told her everything she needed to know. Backing away, hands now sparking like lightning, he stumbled and tripped over the binder he'd failed to pick up earlier, sending him down to the hard floor. He managed to break his fall with his other hand, but it still hurt like hell. Now he was sure she was hurt - it was written all over her face - and she wouldn't want to see him. Self-fulfilling prophecy, right? That's what it felt like. Nix wished she would leave - no, he wished even more that he could rewind time and not yell at her. Unshed tears stung his eyes like tiny papercuts.
    "I didn't mean.. I thought.... y-you were..."

    Luna was completely shocked. Completely just...well, basically she couldn't really think straight. She instinctively stepped forward to try and catch Nix as he fell, but she was only able to take one small step forward. She didn't even manage to get herself to reach a hand out. His face...holy shit...Was that what she looked like when she had that panic attack a week ago..?

    "Nix...i-it's...it's okay, I'm fine. Y-you're fine-" her heart jumped again as the line Nix had said repeated again in her mind.

    '...date with what might be the actual love of my LIFE...'

    "Y-you..." she finally took another step forward, her eyes watering. The tears cascaded down slowly. Luna finished her sentence in a whisper that was barely even audible to her own ears, "...l-love...me..?"
    She could feel her cheeks heat up a bit, but just barely. Luna was way too overwhelmed to care.

    He-

    -yeup. He does.

    Wait- THAT'S WHAT YOU NOTICED!?

    Yeup.

    DON'T YOU 'YEUP' ME YOU PIECE OF SHIT!! I SWEAR TO FUCKING GOD I WILL FUCKING MURDER THE LIVING FUCK OUT OF YOU, YOU FUCKER!! I WILL FUCKING DRAG YOU OUT OF MY HEAD AND FUCKING SLAUGHTER YOU-

    "I just - I was preparing for you to come over and I thought it was some solicitor coming over to check the dorm, cause I want someone to move in to -"

    He went on, trying to explain himself, but she silenced him with the few words he heard.

    "Y-You... l..love me?"

    Ah, shit, she was crying too. Of course he'd make her cry... but...?

    He took a moment to realize what he'd said to her. He said she might be the love of his life...?

    Well yeah, but he hadn't told her that yet. And now he had. Oh God, he'd actually told her he loved her. To her.

    "I - uh, um... yeah, I.... "
