Perhaps they'd had just a bit too much to drink. [Drabble]
Warnings: Drunken kisses.
Notes: Written during a drabble chat. Someone was talking about drunks making out with someone not in their usual pairing. Though I think these two are a bit more sober that either will admit to being. Set before the games start.
“Your tail is ugly,” Freya carefully enunciated each word, the vowels still came out mangled and barely legible to anyone sober.
Zidane, fortunately, did not have that problem. He was twice as drunk as she was, no matter what she said otherwise. “’s not! Yours is uglier.”
“It is not!” Freya replied indignantly, but she turned to squint fuzzily at it anyway. “Is it?”
The hint of uncertainty broke through the haze of alcohol in Zidane’s brain. Unfortunately, it wasn’t quick enough to stop his mouth. “It’s the ugliest tail I’ve ever seen.”
“It is!” Freya’s face crumpled as she wailed. “That’s why he left me! It’s because my tail is ugly!”
“Uh,” Zidane stared helplessly at the morose woman. “I, uh, didn’t really mean it.” Freya continued to stare at her tail. Zidane tried to regain some of the charm that seemed to have deserted him after the seventh round. “I think you’re really pretty, Freya.”
“Liar,” Freya muttered.
“No!” Zidane's eyes widened and he fixed his most charming grin on, and succeeded in making it look only slightly psychotic. “You’re absolutely gorgeous. Anyone who’d want to leave someone as beautiful as you should get his head checked.”
“Really?” Freya sounded hopeful as she straightened from her slump. “You’re not just saying that to make me feel better?”
“Re-hmph!” Zidane was cut off by a lapful of a friend he’d swore couldn’t move that fast while drunk, or could be coordinated enough to keep the stool and their drinks from spilling as she thoroughly kissed him.
Freya grinned wickedly when she sat back saying, “Thanks Zidane, you’re not too bad looking yourself. For a monkey-tailed bastard.”
