"HOLY CRAP. HOLY F- DID YOU SEE THAT, AL? DID YOU FRICKING SEE THAT?!"
You were screaming your head off like a deranged lunatic.
How had it come to this?
---- 2 hours earlier ----
"So ________, I know I told you we could go out to dinner, but I was wondering if maybe you could come over to my place?"
Alfred, scratched the back of his head nervously as you stared at him with you big, curious, (e/c) eyes.
The blond boy was your first boyfriend, and he was usually much, much more obnoxious than he was being right now. Well, everyone else thought he was obnoxious. You thought that he was just plain adorable. You were wondering at that moment what was making him act so nervously. You spent time together often enough, so canceling dinner was no biggie.
"Yeah, 'course. But what gives?" You asked.
"O-oh, well, I just thought it might be a nice change."
You shrugged and nodded. Al gave you a quick hug and kiss on the head before leaving for his own home in his pick up truck.
A nice change, he said? What could that mean?
Oh NO. What if he was going to dump you. He did seem really nervous all week and eager to get away from you today. Maybe he just wanted to have you over so that he wouldn't look like a douche by doing it in front of people at a restaurant.
You climbed into your car. You'd never been the most secure person in the world so any of Alfred's shifts in personality scared you a little.
Wait. What if it was the opposite? hat if he wanted to take your relationship to the... next level.
With that thought, your car almost swerved off the road, earning you a honk and the birdy from the albino in the car next to you.
You hadn't really thought about that. Al and you hadn't been dating for a very long time, but you couldn't say you didn't look at him that way! That had to be it. That's why he'd been so nervous, that's why he'd invited you to HIS house, and that was what he meant by nice change. Time to panic.
Everything was set for when _______ came. He had set out appropriate food for them both. He just really hoped that she didn't think he was weird for doing this. He had been really nervous. But ______ needed to know about his feeling on the subject. He steeled his resolve and waited for her to come through the door.
You checked your watch nervously. It would be stupid to be late or early as that could insinuate any number of things. You were wearing one of your cutest outfits. It was a mid-thigh skirt and a pretty (whatevertheheckyouwant) blouse. You're makeup and hair was done just so as the blue eyed man opened his door.
"__-______!" He blushed at you, and you smiled as cutely as possible.
Alfred stood with his body blocking the inside of the house. It was like he didn't want you to see what was in there.
You tried to look around him, but he seemed to shift with you.
"Ummm..." You looked at Alfred, a little confused.
"Y-you know, babe, maybe we could go out after all!"
"No, this is fine!" You said quickly. You had prepared for this night and everything!
He seemed to suffer from some sort of internal battle before finally letting you in.
"Okay..." He said quietly, and walked in behind you.
You clutched your purse and walked into the living room only to see...
"What. On. Earth." You said.
Before you lay a sweet setup for video game heaven. He had set out some X-bog games and Nintendo, alike. Tons of blankets were laid over the floor in front of the huge TV. On the walls were posters of the Avengers and the Justice League. Popcorn, soda, and pizza were all laid out like a buffet along with gummy worms and several other candies.
Alfred stood behind you.
"_____." He cleared his throat. "I know that you think I'm a jock, but to be honest with you.... I am a huge nerd. However, I feel that I have known you long enough to ask you this very important question."
He stood in front of you and got down on one knee.
"______ _______, will you co-op with me?" He asked, holding out a controller to you like a ring.
Your face cracked into a smile. Then a grin. Soon you were laughing harder than you had in a long time.
You hugged Alfred and gave him a sweet kiss on the lips. "Of course I will. And if this is what's been eating you for the past week, then you should really have more faith in me."
You realized that since you had originally gotten the wrong idea, you would need clothes more suited to the occasion.
"Got any jammies, Al?"
"Alright, babe, show me where the buttons for shoot, run, roll, grenade, scope, and to switch guns are.?
You showed him all of the correct buttons and combos.
"You are ready!" He shouted in an announcer voice.
You adjusted his sweat pants and T-shirt you know wore. "Let's get some!" You shouted.
Three minutes into the game on live and you'd dies five times. How? How?
You frowned and grunted as another person took your guy out.
Al leaned over "Hey, babe, you need any he-"
You pushed his face away. "Got it." You growled.
Somebody sniped your person from a tall building.
"CAMPER!" You shouted, making Alfred jump and fumble his controller.
A person jumped out from behind a car and fired on you.
You shrieked and fired your character's gun indiscriminately.
"I WILL END YOU. I WILL FIND YOU, AND I WILL KILL YOU!"
Another person came out of a bush.
"WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE, HUH?!" You howled out the TV. "SOMEBODY'S GOING OUT A WINDOW, MISTER."
Alfred was leaning away from you now, but grinning all the while. You ere really getting into this.
When you finally got a kill, it was pandemonium.
"WHAT. WHAT. SUCK IT, BASTARDS."
But the best part was when you walked into a room with five enemy players.
They fired on you.
"YOU CRACK HEADS! I WILL KILL YOU ALL! SON OF A MOTHER!"
You button smashed your controller.
"HOLY CRAP. HOLY F- DID YOU SEE THAT, AL? DID YOU FRICKING SEE THAT?!"
You leaned toward the TV aggressively, shoving the rest of your burger into your mouth.
"CRACK HEAD, I WILL THROW YOU OUT A WINDOW, YOU DERP!!!"
"The match is over."
You looked from Alfred to the TV and back again.
Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh! You did not just do that. You did not just fly off the handle over a video game.
You sneaked a glance at Alfred who was facing away from you. Oh no! He must think that you were a complete freak!
You crawled over to face him. "Al?"
He was laughing. Like laughing to the point of almost crying.
When he took his hands away from his mouth, "AHAHAHAHAHAHA, oh my word, _______!" He clutched his sides. "AHAHAHAHAH!!!"
"You are so awesome!" He shouted through his laughing.
"What do you mean?" You felt slightly alarmed.
"I mean that your freaking awesome! You actually tried playingd the game and got into it." He lunged for you and snuggle you, pressing your face into his chest.
"Oh, well, thanks?"
Alfred looked into your eyed and smiled that adorable smile only he could pull off.
"I love you, ______."
You nuzzled his neck and grinned. "I love you too."
You played some more video games and finished by watching super-hero movies for the rest of your stay.
That night was definitely not what you expected.
Hey babe, who's your favorite Avenger?" Alfred asked as he lay on your lap.
"Well, he's not really an Avenger."
"Who is it?" He asked.
"... We need to have a talk."
EXTENDED EXTENDED ENDING:
"Why is your purse full of condoms?"
"WHAT THE CRAP ARE YOU DOING IN MY PURSE, ALFRED?!
