002 || not the expected
Stiles pulled at his hair, frustrated. “Oh my god.” He said as he watched Lydia’s retreating back. That girl was going to be the end of him. As the door slammed, he cringed. Could she not see that he was trying to keep her out of it for a reason? It was the last time he was going to do something thoughtful. Stiles quickly paid for his book, thanking the store girl and apologizing for Lydia’s behaviour. Thankfully the book could not be seen in the paper bag they had given him. Stiles stood in front of Lydia, raising his eyebrows in question to her. “Are you really that mad at me? Storming out was a bit of an overreaction.” If she was going to be stubborn then he would stubborn right back.
As she noticed his approaching figure, she kept her head high and continued with the staring battle she has going on with the stray cat. Lydia is well aware that seeing a black cat is bad omen but she couldn’t care less right now. When the cat finally turned its head the other way, she smirked at her victory and faced the guy, who was carrying a paper bag with him, the mystery book out of sight. Upon hearing his question, she decided to ignore it and continue with her unjustified behaviour though in her eyes, it was totally justified. She only obeyed what he wanted her to do, not exactly but she got out of his sight and that’s what mattered, wasn’t it? “Can you just drive me home now?” she questioned, tapping her foot on the concrete ground.
