    Summary

    Adrien’s patience was hanging by a thread. Wearing thin, rapidly dissipating, dissolving, the way his father claimed teeth dissolved in aerated drinks, take your pick. He loved the girl, he really did. But as he watched her stutter a little before she let her head fall on her desk with a wince-worthy thump, before she asked for his physics homework going off their (very, very well-rehearsed) script again. All he wanted to do was take her by the shoulders and shake her while screaming,
     
    “Tell me you love me, I beg you. I can’t stand waiting around this way!”

    And then maybe kiss the hell out of her.

    Hell, he wanted to kiss the hell out of her right now, but he couldn’t because there was The Bet™ that he now felt, in hindsight, was stupid. Not that he would ever admit that to Plagg or to his Princess, of course.

    Summary

    He could’ve explained but she never gave him the chance to. To be fair, he wouldn’t have ever been able to explain until his father’s spring collection line was released. He could tell Nino was befuddled but was trying not to ask too many questions, and Alya kept alternating between suspicion and concern but didn’t say anything either. And Marinette… Well, she had completely iced him out.

    Days turned into weeks.

    Marinette still wasn’t talking to Adrien. She didn’t quite smile the same and yet, Chat Noir found that he was falling in love with Marinette.

    Summary

     

    “You said you wanted me to move on,” he stated, tone completely neutral, his gaze fixed to the view outside.

     

    “I did. I don’t have to watch you do it though, do I?”

     

    “You said you didn’t love me anymore,” he said quietly.

     

    “I- I- I lied."

     

    “Why’d you lie to me?” he asked, voice cracking just a little. “We decided no more secrets when we dropped the masks.”

     

     

    (Or in which Marinette can't bear to watch Adrien trying to move on even though she told him to and Adrien has had it with her stubbornness.)

    Summary

    “For the, uh, game. You said two things,” he said, holding up two fingers. He wiggled one finger.  “That there was a, uh, boy you’ve been in love with for years,” then the other. “And that you want to get over him.”

    “I get that,” he said quietly, tapping a rhythm against her shoulder with his fingers. “Do you, uh, do you see him everyday?”

    “More than he knows, I think,” she said, her tone a little sly, as if she was sharing an inside joke with herself. “He sits right in front of me in class, actually.”

    -o-

    “I realised I’m in love with this girl recently, I’m scared to ask her out. She, um, sits in front of me, an-and…” he floundered before finally tacking on a lie. “She knows exactly how I feel.”

     

    ... Or in which warm feelings flare in chests, soft gazes are exchanged, blushes are blushed and confessions are made without even intending to.

    Summary

    “It… It was only just a kiss... right?”

    She took a step towards him and he kept looking at her, like a lost little puppy. Like a lost little nervous puppy. A lost, nervous, cute as hell puppy that she was so, so mad at right now.

    She felt rationale leave her brain as she took in the sight of him. She grabbed him by his scarf and pulled him down and planted a kiss on his lips. A single, chaste, but firm kiss. She drew back, glare intact, as she looked into his startled, forest green eyes.

    “It was only just a kiss , Adrien,” she said, almost mockingly, her hands still bunching his scarf tightly. “Right? A kiss between just friends.”

    He leaned into her for a second, deeper kiss.

     

    ( In which it started with only a kiss under the mistetoe between "friends", and they both struggle to grapple with the aftermath of it, while trying not to put their friendship on the line. )
