The day had barely started and you were already prepared to nope the hell out of today and just go straight to bed
Lets just flashback a few hours to explain
At the ungodly hour of 3 in the MORNING you’re friend Roxy had started pestering you and was very persistent in getting your attention
You were not to be bothered when it came to precious sleep time, but then you noticed Dirk was frantically trying to contact you as well (or..was it that damn Auto Responder?)
Either way, it was out of character for them
you decided to answer Roxy first
[TG]: Heeeyyy Gurrrll whatttsuo?
[CH]: Rox, someone better be dying, because its 3 IN THE MORNING.
[TG]: Haaah, Chill (incorrectly spelled nickname), I jus wanted ta let uoy know Dick’s been trying to contact ya!
[TG]: *lol I give up
[CH]: Alright, Alright, jeezus, you people are going to be the death of me.
You rose a brow, so, It was Dirk, then? What could HE want at this hour that could get him out of his usual act?
You looked at the log he was sending you
[TT]: Wake up, this is important
[TT]: Shit, (Name), Get up already.
[TT]: Screw it, I’m getting Roxy to wake you up, You sleep like Jade does, and that’s a lot.
[TT]: (Name), Are you up yet?
[TT]: For the love of god, (Name), this is serious. Like, not even in an Ironic way.
[CH]: HOLY SHIT I’M UP WHAT DO YOU WANT, FOR THE LOVE OF ANIME, STRIDER, WHAT.
[TT]: Chill, (Name). Look, I know you hate being up early but I need you to go visit Jake’s Island
[CH]: Dirk, why the ever loving HELL-
Confusion struck you when you saw your message was cut off mid-sentence[TT]: Easy there, (Name). I know Dirk has irritated you, but we don’t have time for your legendary swearing rant.
[CH]: FINE. What do you asshats want.
[TT]: I sent something over to Jake a while back and, recently, I haven’t heard from the guy, I need you to get your weapon and check on him, alright?[TT]: I’m sure you’d be happy to visit him anyway, right? you need an excuse to don’t you?
Your cheeks heated up
[CH]: fine, fine, I’ll go check on the idiot, And shut up, Hal, I’m only doing this because its not exactly like you to message me over 9000 Times.[TT]: Keep telling yourself that. While your face becomes a hue of FF0000
[TT]: Anyway, Get going (Name)
You rolled your eyes and grabbed your Phone and grunted, capatulogging some stuff when your Pesterchum went off again
[TT]: also, be careful and aware when you get to the Island. Best of luck
That caught your attention, if Dirk gave a warning for something, than it was very serious.
You put on the green overcoat jake gave you for ‘Twinsies Day’ and for the hell of it, the rest of the outfit that was similar to what he wore, except you wore your normal shirt, and the shorts were capris
In the gun holsters? just strong tasers, you never had the heart to actually shoot something and kill, so you went for a less fatal alternative.
You preferred a sword, since you and dirk would spar, and the weapon grew on you.
Anyway, you shook your head and grunted “Alrighty, where is that stupid jet pack...Ah!”
You grinned, strapped it onto your back and shot off to the Island of your crush, and you daydreamed how you met the said englishman in the first place
“Jeez, (Name), you really suck at this”
“Fuck off, Strider!”
Ah, friendship, the best example ever is right now
Dirk had once again kicked your ass in a strife
“Golly, Strider! What are you doing to the lady?”
Your senses perked up at hearing the new voice “Huh?”
A tan hand reached out to you and you blinked and looked up at the owner of the hand
Holy shit in a pickle jar
Emerald green eyes looked down into your (e/c) ones, Black hair in a style you couldn’t describe but adventure-like. You shakily took his hand so it wouldn’t be awkward at all and he pulled you up off the ground
“Strider, seriously! You could’ve held back on the lady! Don’t you have manners?”
OH GOD HE EVEN SOUNDED HOT
“Nah, she needs a little challenge, you know?”
“Oh, blast your motives, are you alright miss? I'm Jake English, local adventurer” He grinned
Your brain was having a hot overload and you didn’t know how your mind was working still
“(F-First Name) (Last Name)” you managed to say, eyes darting away in your flustered state
“Ah! Good to meet you (Name)! I’m sure we’ll have some adventures sometime!”
That was the start of your friendship, and you having a crush on the goofy adventurer.
You had finally reached the island, and good god, it took you a few hours, the sun was starting to rise up here, and you downed a water bottle since your throat was very dry.
“Alright, Check on Jake, get some fuel for the jetpack, and go back home to swear the living crap out of Dirk for getting you out here in the first place. Simple enough.”
You looked at the last message Dirk had sent you that warning, seriously, you could handle a few beasts, what would be here that he could deem worthy enough to warn you about?
Sighing, you shrugged and started off to find Jake, grumbling small curses under your breath of various things
Okay, you were starting to get unnerved.
You could have sworn something was following you the entire time you were here
if there is one thing that makes you uncomfortable, it was being stalked, or feeling like you were being stalked
Sure, that might be true for nearly everyone on earth, but for you it was like nails on a chalkboard
You had found Jake’s house, but he wasn’t there, nearly half the day was gone and you still hadn’t found that dork--
Hold up, what was..?
You narrowed your eyes in the hot sun as you noticed a familiar looking figure in the distance
Not thinking, you ran right for it, and as you reach the figure, dumbfounded it was a dummy, it was almost as if it was set up to look like Jake
The next thing that happens is a little blurry for you
Something flashes right next to you and hits you right in the gut, you are sent flying backwards into the ground with the wind knocked right out of you.
Sitting up, you shake your head and look up to meet the gaze of a very familiar looking pair of shades
“What the- Dirk?”
This was not Dirk, most certainly
It was an exact replica of the said strider, but it was a robot, most certainly, same blank stare, katana in hand, with a blue hat symbol on his chest
That warning to bring your sword makes more sense now.
He raises his arm slightly and makes a hand motion that you translated as ‘Bring it on’
You growl and draw out your own weapon and leap forward, metal against metal clashing
-POV CHANGE! To Jake finally!!
Oh, where was that dumb robot!? I couldn’t locate him anywhere this morning at all! It worried me to say the least.
I started to think about (Name), feisty girl, she had a lot of fire in her and I admired it, I wish I could have contacted her, but my internet went down after a storm a few weeks back. Also, I was very busy sparring with that bot Dirk sent me
The damn thing could at least stop being such a pain all the time! It gets me every single time I go outside!
I have been trying to get it to help me with the internet, no doubt I had worried my friends of the lack of contact
I heard a scuffle in the distance where I laid a dummy to look like me, did that blasted robot finally show up?
I peaked out of my hiding spot, and gasped when I saw someone i didn’t expect
What was (Name) doing here!?
My face blushed lightly when i saw she was wearing the replica clothing i sent her to be twins, they looked so nice on her, and--
Oh god! Did brobot think she was an intruder, or even me!?
I darted out to help her
“YOU BLASTED THING! STOP THAT RIGHT BLOODY NOW!!”
--Back to reader-chan!-
“YOU BLASTED THING! STOP THAT RIGHT BLOODY NOW!!”
Both you and the robot that looked like Dirk looked over to see a fuming Jake English running over
“What in the bloody devil dickens do you think you’re doing to (Name)!? You might be hurting her!”
The robot, surprisingly, stopped, and looked at Jake, then you
Jake stopped to catch his breath “What is up with you these days? I try to go out and find you so you can help me fix my internet and you always don’t listen. seriously!”
You stared at jake, wow, he was really cute when he was upse--NO STOP THAT, (Name)!!
Jake continued to scold the robot for a few minutes “Now, you get to that tower and help me, and get the first aid kit, lord knows how much you rattled her!” it nodded and flash stepped away
“Oh, bloody hell, (Name) are you all right?? Brobot didn’t hurt you too bad, did he? Golly, I’m so sorry!!” you felt your body being picked up from the ground
You didn’t get to answer because you passed out from sheer exhaustion of everything going on
I woke up to an ice cold feeling to your head and gut
You coughed a few times and muttered “Ow, wh...what the hell?”
“Oh, You’re finally awake! Thank god..”
“The one and only, (Name), you nearly gave me a heart attack!”
“What the fuck happened- I- I can’t even comprehend anything…”
“Easy there, you fought brobot, it was pretty rough.”
“Dirk sent me here because you haven’t been responding for a while, or something, and I got my ass kicked. What the Fuck.”
Jake chuckled “He did? ah, Sorry about that then, I don’t entirely know why Dirk would send you, My internet just went out for a while-”
“I’m caught up on that, English” you groaned
“Wait….For you to have come here, that would take hours, and you don't have a teleporter...did you fly here? Oh, golly! That means you had to wake up pretty bloody early! what, at like, 5?”
You grunted “Try 2 hours earlier”
“3 o clock!? B-But, you love sleep! I was fine and dandy and now you’re all hurt and I feel bad about it and I care about you with how adorable you are and i can’t let you be hurt--” you couldn’t handle it anymore
You sat up and grasped his collar “Jake! Shut up, goddamn it! Stop being so fucking adorable and dorky I swear to tater tots ever since I met you I’ve been a blushing cliche mess! You’re so freaking attractive I had to get up at three in the morning to make sure you were okay because I care about you and your sexy as fuck ass!!”
That was when you realized what you said, and became very, VERY red
Jake was staring at you with wide eyes and also, a red face
“....I must go” is all you said before rocketing out of the house so fast Dirk might’ve been impressed at it
“Hold on! (Name)! Get back here! You’re not well enough to be running around!!” what you didn’t know is Jake had the biggest grin ever on his face
You didn’t get very far since, well, yeah, you weren’t in the best of shape, Jake caught you around the waist, leaned forward, and kissed you
And you damn well kissed back.
After air seperated you two, you looked up at Jake
“My, (Name), you can’t go on an adventure all alone, now, can you?” he said, grinning “A lady such as yourself shouldn’t swear so much either! Come on then~”
“Wait, Jake, hold the fuck up, why did you just kiss me!?”
“Well, because I know how you feel now! And I’m even more fine and dandy, now that i know that, did you not like it?”
You blushed even more “....Maybe….”
“Exactly! So, would you like to be my girl?”
“....Shut up, of course I do.”
“Great! now, lets get back inside”
You rested against Jake’s chest and hid your face
“Oh, and (Name)?”
“You have a nice ass too~”
