Hotel Pershing Hall, Paris, Monday Afternoon

Kate had turned twenty two weeks ago. Bod would do the same in a couple of weeks, and so not only was today almost the midway point between their two birthdays, it also happened to be their two-and-a-half years anniversary. Yes, Kate was about as astonished by that fact as most other people might have been. (Her own fifteen-year-old Fandom newbie self from a little over four years ago would have been flabbergasted, for sure.) And it was a cause for celebration.

It had taken some saving and a bit of luck with regards to deals, but they had a suite for a couple of days at Hotel Pershing Hall in Paris (Kate's choice, they hadn't been since that time Fandom was next to Disneyland), near just about all the good stuff as far as Kate was concerned. And that was before she'd seen the inside of the hotel, because holy shit.

"Holy shit."

Way to look like an American tourist right after dragging your bags in the door, Kate.

"Such language," Bod said, stepping inside and glancing around. The language, though, was not without merit. "Quite beautiful."

Understatement.

"I've always been English," Bod pointed out, shaking his head. "I don't think a place could make someone more English despite its beauty. But yes, the bad language was merited here."

"You just can't deal with not being right," Bod said, following behind her. "That's all there is to it. I sounded as English as I've always sounded."

"I can deal with it fine," Bod told her, shaking his head. "I'm wrong quite often and I admit that. I don't argue."

And Bod was just going to let her handle that while he watched the bags. She was the older woman, after all, so she could handle all the grown up duties for the two of them.

He'd just stand there and be English.

"Lead the way, oh wise one," said Bod, gesturing her towards the elevators. "I will be right behind you."

Bod snickered and kept following behind her, stepping into the elevator and pushing himself into a corner just in case anyone else needed to share the elevator with them.

"I didn't want to take up too much space if others joined us," Bod said, getting himself out of the corner now. "I was trying to be polite."
therewaslife: (↑ | cuteness right here)

[personal profile] therewaslife 2013-10-14 08:38 pm (UTC)(link)
"What about that makes me English?" Bod had to ask. "Of all things."
therewaslife: (→ | straightforward)

[personal profile] therewaslife 2013-10-14 08:42 pm (UTC)(link)
"Well, we're very different people in that regard," he said, shaking his head. "And I'm always super polite. You act like you're just discovering all of this about me."

Bod snickered. "Nobody else could have dealt with this for two and a half years without going grey. I'm a very rare find, Kate."
therewaslife: (↑ | shucks)

[personal profile] therewaslife 2013-10-14 09:03 pm (UTC)(link)
"Aww, how sweet," Bod said, following behind her and snickering. "How long have you been waiting to use that one?"

"Katherine," Bod returned with a smile.
