The toms initial reactions was joy. His plan worked! The femme didn't cry! Then she started speaking.
"Oh, no. I'm not looking for love... I never thought I'd find love, and I don't bother searching. I don't know... I just think that love could sometimes tear a cat down. Besides, I'll know that special tom when I see him."
Eagle nodded at this. It made sense, and he realized then that he totally agreed. Besides, every cat he'd ever loved, especially his sister, wound up dead. D. E. A. D. Dead. So they found another thing in common. And if love were real, it would find a way to you. He was about to announce his agreement, when Lavender crouched lower, giving an almost frightened appearance. Oh no, he thought, what did I do now? The next words that came out of her mouth were the words he was least expecting.
"I'm sorry Eagle... I know you had special feelings for me, and for that, I thank you, but I don't want love; not yet. There's just something that tells me that one of us wouldn't make it..."[/b]
The tom blinked, eyes clouding with confusion. What had he done to make her think that? He thought back. He had said she wasn't just a pretty face. He pressed pretty close to her inside the pumpkin and instead of running came back to her... and then he mentioned love. What a stupid thing to say! He groaned out loud at his own stupidity and frustration. Eagle took a deep breath and took down at the calico, suddenly at a loss for words. She looked completely and utterly pitiful, laying on the ground confessing to him her real feelings. His frustration at the situation was suddenly replaced by amusement.
"I uh, well..." he mumbled stupidly, "The truth is, I'm not in love with you. Not at all. I agree with the first thing you said, I'll let it find me. Sorry about that, but theres no way I'd be in love with you! Eagle realized what he had just said, and widened his eyes and quickly added, "Not that you aren't attractive of course! It just... you know, right? Friends for sure though!"
He shook his head at himself, and waited for the dappled femmes response, thinking about it. Had she really believed he was in love with her? Unable to hold it in, Eagle burst out laughing.
"I'm sorry!" he managed to choke out, "Its just..." And A whole new wave of laughter found its way into his throat.
ooc; I can just see Eagle now.. *blinks blinks* Uh, what??? @_@
