“Hey, isn’t that the rouge Faunus Ozpin allowed into the school?”
“Yeah, I heard he was a member of the White Fang.”

“Dude, what is Ozpin thinking? Letting someone like that into Beacon?”

Noticing his ears and the menacing weapon he carried on his back, they approached him and ordered him to come with them. When he refused, they immediately drew their guns and without even a warning, began to fire at him.

Yellow Beauty Burns (Yang Xiao Long x MaleReader)
Beacon Academy, the best Huntsman training academy in the Kingdom of Vale; and a few short weeks ago, you stepped off your airship from the island of Patch with your best friend Jaune Arc and became official students. You and Jaune made some new friends in the short amount of time you had been at Beacon, including a black-haired girl with a red cape named Ruby and her sister Yang; but some new acquaintances were not as friendly to you and Jaune at first, like Weiss Schnee. Despite all of this and being literally flung into an initiation the very next day, you and the other first-years were formed into teams of four each with their own team name and leader. Jaune was partnered up with a red-haired girl named Pyrrha and teamed up with the pairing of Nora Valkyrie and Lie Ren to form Team JNPR with Jaune as a leader. Ruby and Weiss, along with Yang and a black-haired girl named Blake became Team RWBY and Ruby was named leader despite having skipped two years of training at her previous ac

Goldilocks and the Wolf
(y/n) didn’t know it, but a pair of lilac eyes had been watching him throughout his first weeks of attending Beacon. She watched as he ate his meals, during class, and while he sparred with his teammates. Yang just couldn’t help but to be enamored with him, it was understandable for a girl her age to be attracted to (y/n), who really was easy on the eyes. But there was one thing she saw as a flaw, and that was (y/n)’s uptight personality. He never really interacted with anyone except with his teammates, and even that was scarce. She had tried to get a “hello” out of him, all he did was respond with a grunt and keep moving on.
It was on a weekend when she finally managed to stop him and get him to speak with her . . . . . . . by grabbing onto his tail when he tried to walk away after giving his brief response to her greeting. He let out a pained yelp.

You Won't Fall (Velvet Scarlatina x MaleReader)
The sun was shining on another day at Beacon Academy as you slowly woke up this morning. Classes had been going on for a few weeks and you and your friend Jaune Arc had come a long way. The two of you were named the leaders of your teams and, along with team RWBY, you had plenty of fun times together. You looked over to see your teammates Nick, Carmen and Daisy still fast asleep, you being the early riser of the team, so you quietly got dressed and headed down to the dining hall for breakfast. Walking inside, you looked over to see Ruby, Weiss, Blake and Yang sitting with Jaune and his teammates Pyrrha, Nora, and Ren. They noticed you and waved so you waved back, but as you passed them you heard laughter and it didn’t seem to be the good kind of laughter.
Looking over to your left you saw Cardin Winchester and his team picking on a girl wearing the standard school uniform. She was about as tall as Blake with brown eyes and long brown hair like your teammate Daisy. Another similar

The Velveteen Bunny and the Wolf
It was happening again. Lunchtime rolled around at Beacon Academy, Velvet’s team had just finished their meal ahead of her. Seeing that Cardin and his team weren’t in the room, she insisted that they on their way and she would catch up later. Little did she know that the threat was nearby, hidden like predators stalking their prey. They emerged from their hiding spot and surrounded the poor rabbit Faunus.
“Hey bunny,” Cardin taunted, “All alone today eh?”
'Oh no,' Velvet thought with dread, 'I thought for sure they were gone!'
Not wanting to be the victim of their cruel games, Velvet got up from her seat and attempted to leave in hopes of being left alone, but sadly, Cardin and his team had other plans. Russell swiftly stepped in front of her, blocking her way to freedom.

A Rose,By Any Other Name-A Ruby X Reader Story-Ch2
Chapter 2 - Blushing Red Like Roses

    The next morning, you practically sprang out of bed, although you weren't sure why. Maybe the alarm just happened to startle you that morning. At any rate, you got out of bed and got yourself dressed. Your teammates asked if you were okay. You thought back to yesterday, and decided to not explain the whole thing. It was too much of a hassle, especially at this hour. “I'm fine. Just had a long day is all. It happens.” You told them. They seemed okay with that answer as you got your things and headed to first period.

    First period went by at a decent pace. Same for the next few. Lunch, or 6th period for you, rolled around soon enough. You headed to the cafeteria almost in rhythm to your music yet again. As you got there, you saw Ruby skipping for the door, with her big red headphones wrapped around her head. You sprinted forward and grabbed the door, and swung it open for her. Upon noticing this, Ruby removed a headphone from her ear and set it behind her ear slightly. “Hey, (Y/n)! Thanks!” She said aloud. She hopped into the room, and you followed suit, the door coming to a close behind you. After it shut, Ruby turned to you and asked “Hey! Do you wanna come sit with my team?” She held her pale hands to her chin and looked up at you, a sparkle in her eye. Before you answered, you thought of Yang. “Did something happen between you and Ruby?” She said in your head. “Pleeease?” Ruby begged, hopping and beginning to draw attention from one or two teams. Coco and Velvet from team CFVY were staring and whispering, but Coco was doing more of the pointing. Regardless, they both giggled to themselves. The other team, of course, was team RWBY. Weiss gave you that same eyebrow raise she had the other night, and Blake was too involved in her book to give more than a second’s attention to the two of you. Yang sat and stared, smiling, her head resting in her hand. “Well alright.” You said to Ruby. “Awesome! I'll take you to the table!” She said, grabbing your hand and pulling you with her. Your cheeks burned as she did this, but luckily she didn't see.

    You could sure tell Yang saw though. That smug grin said enough.

    Ruby sat down and patted on the seat next to her. “This might as well just happen.” You thought to yourself as you sat down next to Ruby. “You guys remember (Y/n)!” She said aloud, turning to face her team. Weiss simply said “Yes…” with that same eyebrow raise that only made you nervous she'd start thinking on the same track as Yang, who sarcastically said “Oh, yeah, of course I do.” You shot her an icy stare as she giggled to herself. Blake just said “Hey.” Without looking up from her book. Wanting to take the attention away from you and Ruby, you turned to Blake and asked her “Hey, what’s that book about?” She looked up, taken aback by your question. “Huh?”

    “Your book. Does it have a name?”

    “Um, it's about a man with four souls, all fighting for control over his body.”

    “Ooh, interesting. You'll have to let me borrow it when you're finished.”

    Blake shut the book and pulled it closer to her, almost hissing at you. You were taken aback, and you even shuffled in your seat a bit as her yellow eyes pierced your (e/c) ones.

    “Blake doesn't like to share her books.” Ruby explained. “I'll try to talk her into giving you the first book in that series later if you want.” Blake quickly shifted her ferocious gaze to Ruby, who only laughed in response.

    “So (Y/n),” Weiss asked you. “What classes are you taking this year?”

    You all went on to have a great discussion about school and classes. You were friendly and made jokes with the entire team. Yang found you hilarious, and made some “jokes” of her own. Weiss was very interested in what you said about classes, but little else. Blake was wrapped up in her book, but occasionally threw herself into conversation for a moment.

    Ruby enjoyed your company. She found you funny, and almost couldn't stop laughing at yours and Yang’s jokes. Yang would give you a look when she went into a short laughing fit, a look of sass and contempt. It deeply annoyed you, but you decided to keep making Ruby laugh in spite of it. “Making her laugh is more important than me not getting looks.” You thought.

    The bell rang all too soon. You all got up and headed out of the cafeteria. “Hopefully these two periods fly by, I need the end of this day now.” You said to the team. “Ooh! (Y/n)!” Ruby said, springing onto your arm. “You doing anything after classes today?” You looked down to her clinging on your arm happily. Out of the corner of your eye, you saw Weiss giving you that same eyebrow raise she had twice before. This time, she leaned to Yang and whispered something, you couldn't make it out. Yang responded, but again you didn't hear. Weiss was giving you a strange look now, one of confusion, but with a hint of enjoyment. You knew if you said yes, it would only provoke Yang, and maybe Weiss now, to believe that something was going on between you and Ruby.

    But you couldn't say no to that face.

    “Um, well, I don't think so. I'm free. You wanna hang out, don't you?”

    A blush burned on your cheeks slightly, Yang noticed it and smiled, but this time it was a sweet smile. Weiss nodded in understanding. You weren't quite sure, but you began to think Ruby caught that blush in your cheeks, burning red like roses. She giggled and released you from her grip. “Well, you said we were gonna hang out at some point, let's do today!” She said happily. “Okay, I'll meet you in the park after classes let out.” You told her. She smiled and agreed. “Okay, I've gotta go to class. I'll see you after classes.” You said. Ruby gave you a hug goodbye. You blushed red again, but were too happy to care. You caught Yang giving you a look of annoyance after Ruby let you go, and you grew concerned as to why she sent it to you. You then went to class, and team RWBY to theirs.

    That adorable grin Ruby had given you wa burned into your mind, but it wasn't a problem. Not for the first few moments. You felt your cheeks burn as you mentally relived that moment where she held your arm, and you were snapped back into reality when you realized there was a smile in between your burning cheeks.

    You started to think you knew why Yang gave you that look.

    She was being protective.

A Rose,By Any Other Name-A Ruby X Reader Story-Ch1
Chapter 1 - Little Red Hood

The birds sang in the cool late afternoon. Leaves detached from the trees in the common areas and barreled down the gray sidewalks of Beacon Academy.

Fall was always such a pretty time of year.

As much as you loved the fall and how pretty it looked, you couldn’t help but drown out its sound with some music. You pulled out your scroll and plugged your earbuds into it. Your gaze from the sidewalk shifted down to your scroll as you hit play on an album by (favorite artist). The loud music poured from the tiny (f/c) earbuds into your head. It felt relaxing, almost like you could physically feel stress in your body being unwinded by the melody of the song.

You looked forward to see a tennis ball rolling down the sidewalk from in front of you. It hopped forward, closer to your black shoes, and then set on a rolling path. As it slowed, you lifted your foot and stopped the ball in its tracks under your toes. Soon after, a grey dog began to trot forward, his black eyes set on that bright green object. The dog bent its head down and gnawed for the ball underneath your shoe. You lifted your weight from the ball and got down on one knee to say hello to the dog. It seemed eager to say hi back, rubbing its head happily in your hand. The ball was caught now between its sharp white teeth. Its eyes shut as it buried its face in your open hand. Its fur felt soft, like a newly made bed. Suddenly, a faint yell dug its way through your music, and the dog’s head perked up. It turned and trotted back where the ball had come from, towards an open field with trees scattered nearby. One of the school’s parks. You saw two girls standing there, facing your direction. One, the taller and blonde one, was bending down, grinning at the grey dog and patting her knees with her gloved hands. The other was- Wow, she was.

Her black dress danced elegantly in the fall breeze, almost into melody with your song. She stood straight up, a hand holding the red tip of the dress to her leg. The other waved at you, next to a pale white face. She had silver eyes, a trait you never realized was this beautiful. Her black hair flew to the side, dancing to the same rhythm as her dress. The red tips of her hair shone brightly in the late afternoon glare of the sun, almost as brightly as her bright red cloak she wore, that danced ecstatically in the wind, with a hood held at its top, behind the short girl’s head.

You found yourself waving back, and decided to go over there and say hello. The awkward silence was eliminated by your music, but you decided to remove an earbud and lower the volume, so as to hear your music still, but also say hello to these girls in the park.

“Hi.” You began, drawing closer to the hooded girl, while the blonde rolled in the green grass with the grey dog. “Pretty sweet dog you’ve got there.” You told her, both of you now staring at the blonde girl laughing with the dog crawling over her in joy. “Thank you!” She said excitedly. Her voice was high pitched, like a child’s. Yet, it was attention grabbing and beautiful. You turned to one another. “His name’s Zwei. My dad sent him to us so we could watch him for a while.” “Oh, that’s nice of him. I didn’t know Beacon allowed students to have pets here with them.” The girl leaned in closer to you and whispered “Yeah, they don’t.” You both shared a laugh. After pulling yourselves together, you extended your arm. “My name’s (F/n) (L/n), by the way.” She threw her hand to yours and shook it firmly. She was stronger than you’d anticipated. “I’m Ruby. Ruby Rose. Nice to meet you, (Y/n).” She released her grip of your hand, and you brought yours back to your side, and she hers. “That’s a very pretty name, Ruby.” She smiled, and her cheeks filtered to a slight red. “Like a name in a fairy tale.” Her cheeks shifted to a deeper red as her blonde friend laughed harder, trying to sit up with Zwei tackling her. “That’s a very nice thing to say, but you’re lucky she didn’t hear it.” Ruby said, turning to the girl. You looked as well, as Ruby went on. “That’s Yang, my older sister. She means well, but she’d punch you into next week if she heard you say that to me.” With a sarcastic tone, you said aloud “Oh, well, she sounds like a fun person.” Ruby giggled as Yang seized Zwei in her arms and stood up with slight difficulty. The dog panted happily in her arms, staring off into the sunset. “Hey.” She said. A little nervous now from Ruby’s remark, you responded “Hi.” “The name’s Yang. I’m Ruby’s older sister.” Pretending you hadn’t just heard all that, you said to her “Really? Cool.” Ruby smiled, and you saw it out of the corner of your eye. “I’d shake your hand, but, um…” Yang said, holding up Zwei. He barked once. “Nah, that’s alright.” You said back. Yang and Ruby chuckled. “You know, I have a dog kinda like Zwei back home. He doesn’t look quite the same, but he’s sure just as hyper.” You explained, trying to start a conversation. “Oh, cool! I love dogs! What’s your dog’s name?” Ruby asked happily.

“Baskerville.”

“Ooh, interesting name.”

“Thanks, thought of it myself.”

“Well, it’s very creative”

“Thanks.”

Suddenly, the chilly wind tore through the blades of grass below you three. It stung cold like an icy slap upon your cheeks. Ruby crossed her arms and Zwei shivered. “Yeah, we should probably get inside.” Yang said to you both. “It’s getting cold, and Zwei hates the cold. But I’ve gotta take him to go do his business one more time before we head in. Ruby, you can head in, I’ll be there in a moment.” And with that, Yang set Zwei down and strolled further into the field, making sure to take the tennis ball with her. Ruby turned to you and said “Well, it was awesome meeting you, (Y/n), but I’ve gotta go.” Seeing a good moment to get to know your new friend a bit better, you asked her “Hey, if you want, I can walk you inside.” Ruby turned to you with childlike excitement. “Wow, really?” With a casual shrug, you said “Yeah! It’d be my pleasure.” Ruby smiled and squealed “Okay, let’s go!” And with that, you two started for the front of Beacon Academy.

“So! Is this your first year at Beacon?” Ruby asked chipperly.

“Yeah, it is. I still find myself getting lost in the halls, but it’s so much better than Signal, in my opinion.”

“I can vouch for that. I liked Signal and all, but Beacon is just so coooooooool!”

“Wait, you went to Signal too?”

“Yeah, for two years. That was before I got moved up.”

“Oh, well I went for all four years. I must have been a senior when you were a sophomore, so that explains why we never had any classes together or anything. But, you said you got moved up?”

“Oh, yeah, that was Ozpin’s decision. See, he decided to move me up after I stopped a robbery at a dust shop just down the street from my house.”

“Wait- You stopped a robbery?”

“Yeah! It was so much fun! I got to see a real huntress in action, I got to throw some guy through a window, it was so cool!”

“Sounds like it. I think I heard about the robbery on the news, though. Roman Torchwick was the guy that started the whole thing, right?”

“Yeah, him.”

“Well, he sounds like a fun person.”

Ruby giggled at your sarcasm as you both stepped into the elevator. Ruby hit a button, and the doors soon closed. You saw the button and said “Hey, that’s my floor too!”

“Is it really?”

“Yeah! It really is weird that we’ve never met before now.”

“Well, at least we did meet. You seem like a nice person so far, (Y/n).”

“As do you, Ruby. We’ll have to hang out again sometime after classes let out.”

“Yeah, sure! I’ll see what days I’m free and then text them to you! But I’ll need your number for that, do you mind?”

“Not at all! One sec.”

You and Ruby exchanged phone numbers as you approached her dorm. As you put your scrolls away, she turned to you with her hand on the door and said “Hey! Do you wanna come in and meet my other teammates?” You shrugged and said “Sure! I’d love to!”

Ruby swung the door open and skipped inside, enjoying the warmth of the room. It had disheveled bunk beds on either side, along with various other items like nightstands and posters scattered around. Next to an open book on the floor stood a girl with a long white ponytail on the right side of her head. She was in her PJs, but held a rapier with several dust chambers at its hilt. She looked down to the book, taking almost no notice to you, and adjusted her stance. “Hey Weiss! Practicing your stance again?” Ruby asked the girl. “No, simply improving how I leap into an attack from it. For some reason, I can’t seem to get the stance right, though.” Weiss explained, the dust chamber ticking as it spun around in circles. “Maybe you’re just too tired. You were studying when I left an hour and a half ago. Maybe you should take a break.” Reluctantly, Weiss bent down to pick up the book. She closed it, and set the two objects in her hands upon the desk by the door. She finally looked at you directly, and said “Hello. Ruby, is this a friend of yours?” Ruby turned to you on her heel. “You know, (Y/n), you can come in if you want.” With a chuckle, you said “Nah, I’ve gotta go to bed, and I don’t wanna keep you up either.” Weiss strolled up to you lazily and extended a hand. “Very empathetic of you. My name is Weiss Schnee, it’s a pleasure to meet you.” She said as you shook her hand. “My name’s (Y/n).” You told her. She then turned and headed over to her bed, and removed the tie from her hair. It fell down to the sides of her head gracefully. As she set the tie on the nightstand, you noticed another hand reach for a bookmark from the other direction. It was black sleeved, and moved towards a book, held by a woman lying in her bed, with the covers up and a brown covered book in her hand. She bookmarked her page and set the book on the nightstand. She had black hair, and wore a bow atop her head. Her yellow eyes looked from the nightstand up to you as she pulled the covers up a bit. “H-Hi.” She said in a deep voice. You smiled and waved to her from across the room. “My name’s Blake.” “(Y/n).” You said casually. Blake smiled quickly, and then yawned.

    “Okay, I can see you guys are getting tired, but it was nice meeting you all! I’ll see you around!” Weiss and Blake said their goodbyes as Ruby hung her bright red hood upon the end of her bed. She then ran over to you and wrapped her arms around you in a hug. “BYE!” She said quickly in that little high pitched voice. You felt your cheeks turn warm as your eyes widened. Blake didn’t catch it, she was already asleep, but Weiss saw your reaction and raised an eyebrow your way. Before you could reciprocate the hug, Ruby pulled herself off of you. “See ya later!” “Um, b-bye!” was all you could say. You turned and headed out of the room, and Ruby shut the door behind you.

You stood still for a moment, your back to the door, with muffled talking coming from behind. Your legs felt like stone, but they sprang into movement when the ring from the nearby elevator pierced your ears. Tiny footsteps poured out of the open door, and you turned to see Zwei trotting towards you, Yang following suit. Zwei sniffed your shoe, then curled up by the door. He yawned, and set his head down. “Hey, (Y/n).” Yang said. “Did, Ruby kick you out or something?” Your cheeks were still burning from that hug, but it faded as you turned to Yang and explained that you’d just left the room after meeting Weiss and Blake. Yang nodded in understanding. “Fair enough, but what was with the standing still?” She asked. You panicked and said “I don’t know, I just, um, I don’t know. I should go to bed now. I’ll talk to you la-” “Wait wait wait wait wait.” Yang interrupted. You reluctantly turned back to face her. “You were blushing a minute ago.”

You wished your cheeks hadn’t ignited themselves then and there, but the fear in you forced it to show.

“And, there it is again!” “Wha- Yang! Keep your voice down!” You whispered sharply. Yang gave you a confused look, and walked forward. She placed her hand on your chest and pushed you gently backwards, away from her dorm door. She lowered her hand and whispered to you “Did something happen between you and Ruby?”

“Wha- No! We just talked, that’s it! Nothing happened!” You whispered back. “Doesn’t look like it.” Yang teased. “If I didn’t know better, I’d say you like her.” You forced yourself to turn to the floor below to hide the flaming blush on your cheeks. “Yang, that’s ridiculous. I met her not 10 minutes ago. I don’t go after people the moment I meet them, I’m not that type of person.” “You can deny it all you want.” Yang continued. “But I saw you two talking as you walked to the front of the school, and I definitely saw a spark go off between you two.” You continued looking at the floor. Yang lifted her arm to your shoulder. “(Y/n). You don’t need to hide it from me if you do like her. Believe me, I can keep a secret. You don’t have to say anything now if you don’t want to, but let me know when you’re ready to admit it.” You stayed silent and removed her arm from your shoulder. “I’m gonna go.” You said flatly. “Alright, fine. Talk to you later.” You turned as Zwei yawned and stood from his resting spot. “Oh, and, one more thing.” Yang said from behind you. You turned to face her.

“If you play your cards right, I’m sure she’d like you too.”
You rolled your eyes and walked off as Yang chuckled to herself and entered the room.
You thought about what she said as you entered yours. “If you play your cards right, I’m sure she’d like you too.”

You turned the knob to your door and entered your room. Your teammates were talking amongst themselves, but they stopped to say hello to you. You were too flustered to properly respond, so they just assumed you were tired and let you go to sleep. They toned their discussion to a whisper as you thought about Ruby and what Yang had said.

Soon enough, your eyes gently laid themselves to a close.

Next Story
So for my next RWBY X Reader story I'll be focusing on Ruby Rose! While I was writing the Velvet story I had a lot of fun making her a cute supporting character to the story, and I figured it'd be fun to have her be the one to focus on for a change! Since the date ending to the Velvet story got more favorites than the talk ending, I'll be doing a date ending for this one as well, unless I get enough requests for a talk ending. If so, I'll release both. Hopefully everyone enjoys the Ruby story when I first publish it! If I'd have to guess, that'll be next Sunday.

Bunny Love - A Velvet X Reader Story - Chapter 7B
Chapter 7B - A Night Out

    “I’ll take her on a date.” You told Ruby.

    “Aww, that’s great!” She said, smiling. “Although I’m really not the person to talk to about it. I’d go to Yang if I were you. She’d know better than anyone how you should go about it.” You smiled and slowly stood up. “Okay, I will after classes tomorrow. I’ve got a lot on my mind right now, and I’m kinda tired. But thanks for everything, Ruby. I don’t know how to thank you.” She stood up. “Don’t. I’m just glad to help. I’ll tell Yang to come talk with you after classes tomorrow.” After a quick bear hug, she started for the door and let herself out. “By the way,” She said, holding the door for a moment, “I totally ship you guys.” “Get outta here!” You said back jokingly. Giggling, she pulled the door to a close.

    After her footsteps trailed off, all was quiet. Even the distant noise of the crickets outside seemed to silence itself. The silent ambience of the air seemed cold, but not in a bad way. You felt comfortable, happy, like you never wanted that moment to end, but you weren’t quite sure why. You felt content.

    Excited about tomorrow and what it would bring, talking to Yang, you went to bed a bit early. You needed your rest, if tomorrow was going to go well.

    Waking up the next morning felt like the morning of (favorite holiday). You were so excited for today, and just being able to go out on an actual date with that adorable bunny. You were a blur getting ready, taking the time to make yourself look extra nice. But the day genuinely couldn’t have gone slower. Classes dragged on, but thankfully you met up with Velvet for lunch again. Hanging out with her felt nice, but new, in the sense that you looked at her in a new light now. There’s always that way you look at someone, and how different you look at someone when they’re just a friend or a crush or whatnot. It felt so comfortably different. Her brown eyes shined with happiness and joy when you told a joke, and her cheeks turned a bit red when she laughed too hard, that big smile plastered on her face like a work of art. Her tall, brown ears remained straight up as you talked, but they seemed to bend downwards when she laughed too hard, holding her sides and hunching over. Oh, how hard it was to resist the urge to just kiss her right then and there. If you could have gotten away with it, you would have.

    Damn social rules.

    The end of the day finally arrived, finally. You speed walked back to your dorm with a quiet smile on your face. Your pocket began buzzing all of a sudden, and it yanked you out of that moment like someone grabbed your hand and pulled. You reached for the scroll inside and opened it to see Yang giving you a call. Heading inside the building and walking through the lobby, you answered it. “Hey Yang, what’s up?” “Hey, (Y/n)! Just calling because Ruby ran by me yesterday that you wanted to chat with me about something. What’s up?”

    “Yeah, I did. Good things, though. Nothing bad.”

    “Oh, sweet. Ruby was being super cryptic about it. She couldn’t stop giggling, like there was some big secret she didn’t want to spill.”

    You looked around quickly, the lobby was empty. “Well, there is a big secret, but it doesn’t affect you, so no worries. I just need some advice about it, if you don’t mind.”

    “Oh, okay. I can do that.”

    “Great! I’m in the lobby right now, mind coming down to meet me?”

    “No problem. On my way.”

    “Okay, thanks, Yang. See you in a few.”

    “See ya!”

    She hung up the call.

    You closed your scroll and put it in your pocket. Having nothing else to really do for the next minute or so, you paced around the lobby for a while, thinking. “‘I’d go to Yang if I were you. She’d know better than anyone how you should go about it.’” Ruby’s voice echoed in your head. “I sure hope so. I don’t wanna screw this up.” You paused. “I should make sure Velvet’s free later. I guess I’ll ask her tonight. Why not?” You pulled out your scroll again. It said the time was 2:40. “Not sure how long this talk will take. I want a few hours to collect my thoughts anyways. Say around 8.” Opening up your chat with Velvet, you texted “You free around 8? Want to ask you something.” “I guess I can’t say if it’s a good thing or not. I’m not sure how she’s gonna take this.”

    You hit send.

    Strangely enough, she began texting back immediately. Those dots under your message appeared right after you hit send. It caught you off guard. “How’d she… Did she know I was gonna text, or..?” You received the text from her. “Yeah, I’ll be at your room at 8:15.” At the end was a little panda emoji, which made you giggle. Just then, the elevator at the end of the room made a noise, signaling it was about to open. You closed the chat and put your scroll away. As you paced to the elevator, the doors opened with a low hum. Yang stood within, one hand on her hip, the other at her side, that orange scarf dangling from her neck still. You raised your hand to wave to her. She rose her arm and waved back. “Hey.” You said upon reaching her. “Yo. So, you’re all good?” She asked, a hint of concern in her tone. “Eh, I guess. That’s kinda what I wanted to talk with you about.” She rose her shoulders and said “Alright.”

    As you began to walk out of the building, you started the conversation. “So, you know Velvet Scarlatina, right? Brown bunny ears, kinda shy, carries that little box with her?”

    “Eh, sorta. Ruby knows her more, but any friend of hers is a friend of mine. Hey, she’s that girl you got Cardin to back off of the other day, right?”

    “Sheesh, news travels fast around here.”

    “People talk.” Yang said with a shrug.

    After a pause, you turned your head to her and said “Speaking of, how good of a secret keeper are you?” She hesitated for a minute. “I’m alright. Why?”

    “Um, I don’t want you telling anyone else about this talk, or what I’m gonna tell you here, can you do that?” She looked to you with concern in her lilac eye. “Yeah, I’ll keep quiet. What’s up?”

    You tied your hands around your back and kicked the ground in front of you, but continued walking. You looked up to find yourself outside, walking past a common area, those areas with the grass and the benches. You assumed you were so lost in conversation you forgot to pay attention to where you went. “Um, well, recently, I’ve started developing feelings for Velvet. I… I, want to ask her out, you know, on a date. Just telling her I like her isn’t my style. It’s just not what I’d do. Thing is, I have no idea how I’m supposed to go about asking her, let alone what to do ON said date. I told Ruby something similar, I think, and she said you were a better person to talk to about it than her.” Yang shrugged. “She’s not wrong.”

    You turned to Yang, who was looking up and thinking, her hands at her sides. “Well, even I’ve noticed how shy Velvet can be, but if she really likes you back, she won’t mind going on a date if it’s with you. Plus, it’s super sweet of you to take her out. You’re on the right track so far.” You smiled as she continued. “Sure, it can be nerve racking, but all you really gotta do is be nice. Hold the door for her, take the bill, hold her hand on the way home. That kinda stuff.” You nodded in understanding. “Yeah, I can do that, sure.” Yang lifted her hands in the air. “That, confidence, and a nice outfit, and you’re good to go.” She clapped once, loudly. “Alright, that sounds simple. But, how do I ask her?” “Well, what is it you wanna do?” Yang responded in a chill tone. “Take her on a date.” With a laugh, she said “Just say that. ‘Hey Velvet, can I take you on a date?’ It’s not that hard.” You tilted your head from side to side. “Eh, alright. Thanks for the advice, Yang. Really helped a lot.”

    “No problem. Just gonna throw this out there, though. It’s sweet that you care for her the way you do, it really is. With Cardin breathing down her neck, she could use someone like you to hold onto.” You smiled and nodded, and then turned to look forward at the trees form the common areas, the leaves blowing ever so gently in the breeze. “So, when’s the date happening? I’ll go one further and help you get ready.” You looked at her in surprise. “Really?” With another shrug, she responded “Sure! I’m helping Ruby get ready also, might as well.”

    “Okay.” You said awkwardly. “I’m asking her tonight. Not sure if we’ll actually go OUT tonight, it’s super last minute, but she’s free tonight and so am I. What’s a better time to just run it by her?” “Sweet.” There was a pause as the quiet breeze blew by you both, blowing Yang’s scarf and your (f/c) hoodie aside slightly.

    “There’s no way she’s gonna turn you down, (Y/n). So long as you play your cards right, she’ll be your GF in no time. Either way, good luck. It’s a gamble, asking someone out. But you should be totally fine. Everything will become second nature before you know it.”

    “Thanks, Yang. Thanks a lot. I owe you one.” You said with a quick smile her way. “You’re welcome.” She responded calmly. Just then, a buzzing broke the silence in the air. Yang checked her pocket to find her scroll lighting up. She opened it to see a call from Ruby. “I’d better take this. Tell me how it goes with Velvet!” “Okay, I will! Bye!” Yang waved and turned to head back into the building. “Hey, Ruby, what’s up?” You pulled out your scroll and checked it as Yang’s conversation got quieter as she grew further away. “No, you don’t need to be nervous! I said I’ll help you get ready and I will.”

    You laughed to yourself.

    Suddenly, a tune played from your scroll in your hand. You checked it to see Velvet texting you, saying, “I’m sorry I didn’t ask earlier, but is…” The message was cut off by the tiny notification slide. You tapped on it to open it and see the full message, which read “I’m sorry I didn’t ask earlier, but is everything okay? What is it you wanna talk to me about?” You hesitated to answer. “Uh…” You said aloud to nobody. In the distance, you heard the front doors to Beacon opening. You heard two voices talking faintly in the same direction, but you couldn’t tell what about. You began typing a response. “Yeah, I’m fine. I’d rather ask you in person, though.” You waited a moment and hit send. Just as you were about to put your scroll away, you got another text. It was from Yang. You opened it, to see her saying “Velvet’s coming! Look alive!” You stood confused for a minute, but your heart skipped a beat when you you heard footsteps headed your way from behind. They were faint, but elegant. You looked over your shoulder, and saw a familiar pair of long brown bunny ears headed your way.

    It was Velvet, staring down at her scroll.

    She stared down for a moment, probably reading your message to her. The wind blew slightly harder than it had a moment ago. Leaves flew past Velvet as her brilliant brown hair lept up to her side. She hunched over a bit, and looked to where the wind was coming from. You grabbed the sides of your (f/c) hoodie and pulled it over yourself to look less sloppy. You ran your fingers through your (h/c) hair and took a breather. Velvet turned and saw you on the path. She waved sweetly at you, and you reciprocated. “Hey Velv, what’s up?” She giggled once. “That’s what you wanted to ask me?”

    Your heart stopped.

    “Well, uh, technically, eh, no.” “Confidence.” Yang said in your head. Velvet held a calm expression on her face. You coughed quickly and said to her boldly “I know we’ve only known each other for a few days and all, but, I don’t know, you wanna go out sometime?” Velvet’s eyes widened. Her mouth opened slightly, and her cheeks turned a bright red. You heard her inhale slightly. There was a very awkward pause as she stood looking at you. She tilted her head to the side and slightly down.

    “I’m free tonight.”

    You were taken aback, but you didn’t let it show. She grinned slightly. With a shrug, you said. “Alright, I guess, it’s a date then.”

    “Alright.” She responded quietly. “At 7, maybe?”

    With a smile, you said “Sure.”

    “Alright then. I came out here to take a quick walk, so I’m gonna go finish that. You go get ready.”

    Laughing slightly, you said “Okay, I will. See you at 7. I’ll go to your dorm and pick you up.”

    “I’ll be ready.”

    She rose her hand for a high five. Again taken aback, you rose your hand and hit hers. She immediately grabbed it. You felt your cheeks burn as she leaned in. “Don’t be late.” Nervously laughing, you said to her “I won’t be late.” She let go of your hand and said “Good.” She put her hand to her hip and strolled off. After a moment’s pause, you walked in the opposite direction. You took out your scroll and called Yang slowly. The phone rang for about half a second before she answered and said “What happened?” You paused.

    “She said yes.”

    “YyyyyyyyyyyyyES! I KNEW SHE WOULD!” You moved the scroll away from your ear. Once she was done screaming, you said to her “She said tonight.” Yang paused.

    “Come over now.”

    * * *

    The elevator doors to your dorm’s floor opened with a low pitched shoving noise. You strolled out alone and knocked on team RWBY’s door. Yang immediately threw the door open and pulled you inside. Ruby sat on the bed in a red dress with a black band around the waist. Yang slammed the door. She turned to you and asked “What happened?” in one of the most eager tones you’d ever heard in your life. She smiled big and stared at you with wide, curious eyes. You looked at her with concern. You turned to Ruby, who was staring at you with the same expression. You stared for a moment before saying to her “Nice dress.” “Thank you.” She responded without blinking. With a sigh, you explained to them what happened.

    “Well, Velvet and I said hi, I asked her if she wanted to go out, and she said ‘Yeah I’m free tonight let’s do that.’ So we planned for 7 and she walked off and then I came over here. Sooooooooo, yeah, that’s about it.” Yang looked at you in disappointment. “Well, at least she said yes.” Ruby said from behind. “Yeah.” Yang agreed. Suddenly becoming enthusiastic, Yang clapped and said “WELL!” You jumped. “We’d better get you ready. We have a little more than 4 hours but we’d better get started now!”

    “Wha- Why?”

    “Do you wanna look good?”

    “Well, yeah, but-”

    “Takes time to! We have plenty, let’s use it!”

    Ruby stood up behind you. “I call the hair!”

    You rolled your eyes.

    * * *

    You sat on the bed, adjusting your outfit (a (f/c) collar shirt, a dark blue blazer with golden buttons, grey dress pants, a belt, and black shoes if male, a (f/c) dress and matching leggings, and black shoes if female). Ruby was behind you, running a comb carefully through your (h/c) hair. “You know,” You said to her without turning. “I can do this myself.” “But I want to!” She continued as Yang laughed. “That looks pretty good, but I have one more idea.” Ruby finished combing your hair and jumped off the bed. “What?” Yang whispered something into her ear. Ruby’s face lit up. “That’s perfect! I’ll go get one!” She zipped out of the room in an instant, leaving rose petals everywhere. Yang strolled over and sat next to you. “So, you nervous? The date starts in 15 minutes.”

    “Not really, no. I mean I’m wearing this nice outfit, sure, but it just hasn’t hit me that it’s for a date yet.”

    “Eh, it will.”

    “I hope so. I’m kinda excited though.”

    “I imagine you would be. You know what to do though, right? Don’t tell me you asked for my advice and then forgot it all.”

    “No, no, I remember. Just be nice and confident.”

    “Yeah. That, and be honest. Don’t you dare lie to her.”

    “I would never do that!”

    “You better not, or I’ll find out, and I’ll find YOU.”

    You gulped nervously. Before you could respond, Ruby zipped back into the room. She tripped and fell, but caught herself on her hands. “Can we talk for a minute about how Weiss FIGHTS in these?” She said, getting up and kicking her heels off. “I don’t need to go ANYWHERE for another hour. I’m not wearing these when I don’t have to” Yang stood up and said to her “I’m sure Weiss will be wearing them tonight.” Ruby whipped her head to Yang and snapped at her with gritted teeth. “Hey- Would you-” Yang snatched something from Ruby’s hand. She turned and handed it to you.

    It was a rose.

    “Figured she’d like it.” Yang said. “Shows you care.”

    “But, I didn’t think of it.”

    “She doesn’t have to know that.”

    “But- What did we JUST talk about?”

    Yang paused and tightened her grip on the rose.

    “Would you just give her the rose?”

    You snatched it from her hand and looked at it. It was brilliantly red. “Freshly picked from outside.” Ruby commented. “I picked the thorns off for you.” “Thanks, Rubes.” You said to her without looking up. Yang grabbed your shoulders and put you in front of the mirror. “So? Whaddya think?”

    But you froze.

    NOW it hit you. You were dressed like this to go on a date with Velvet.

    A date.

    With Velvet.

    It hit you like a punch to the face. You grew incredibly nervous in a matter of seconds. You remembered Velvet, and how great she was. Everything you liked about her. How adorable her smile was, how flirtatious she could get, how funny her jokes were, and so much more.

    This was it.

    You were going on a date with Velvet Scarlatina.

    “I think it just hit me!” You said aloud, stumbling down a bit. Yang grabbed you and helped you up. Ruby came to help too. They both helped you walk to the nearby bed, where you sat down in a nervous heap. Yang sat next to you, and Ruby on the opposing side. “You okay?” Yang asked. You rubbed your head and looked down. “Eh, I don’t know, I think it just hit me that I’m going on a date. NOW I’m nervous, what if I mess it up, what if she doesn’t wanna go on another date, what if-” “Hey, slow down.” Ruby interrupted. “Relax!” You looked up at her. Her silver eyes shined brilliantly. She had a sweet smile on her face. “I know you. You’re not gonna mess it up. You would never let that happen. And even if you did, Velvet would probably find it funny.” You smiled, but that nervous look stayed in your eye. From behind you, “I told you everything you gotta do.” You turned to Yang. “Long as you stick to that, you’ll be fine, really.” “Really?” “Yeah! I told Rubes the same thing and she was great on her date!” From behind you, “You have no idea.” “Look, (Y/n), you’ll be fine, I’m sure.” There was a pause. “I hope so.” You stood up and ran your hand through your (h/c) hair. Ruby jumped up. “Wait wait no don’t mess up my vision!” She grabbed the comb and began fixing your hair. You began to laugh as she panicked a little bit. Yang stood up and put her hand on your shoulder. “(Y/n), you’re ready to go on this date.” You smiled. “Thanks for helping me get there.” She lowered her hand. “You’re welcome.” Ruby finally finished combing your hair. “Hey, you’ve still got a few minutes before you have to pick her up.”

    “Meh, I’ll be fashionably early.” You started for the door.

    Yang ran over and opened it for you. “Go get her.” She said. You nodded with a confident smile. “GOOD LUCK!” Ruby shouted from behind. Laughing, you strolled out of the door. It closed behind you with a click.

    You looked at the rose in your hand as you hit the button on the elevator. It soon opened with the same loud noise from earlier. You stepped inside and set it to go to Velvet’s floor. It closed and then began moving. “‘You’re not gonna mess it up. You would never let that happen. And even if you did, Velvet would probably find it funny.’ ‘you’re ready to go on this date.’” You heard in your head. Confidence flew through you. You felt like you were ready for this date. You felt powerful, ready to have the perfect date with Velvet. Soon after, the doors opened. You heard voices talking from one of the rooms. Strolling to Velvet’s room, you realized it was from her room.

    “But, but what if I’m overdressing?” You heard Velvet say in her little accent. You stopped at the door to listen in for a minute.

    “Dude, you’re not overdressing! You look fine.” “Pretty sure that’s Coco.”

    “I hope I’m not.”

    “Better to overdress than underdress.”

    “Eh, fair enough.”

    “So, when’s (Y/n) supposed to get here?”

    “Um, I think around-” You knocked on the door. “Around now!” Velvet squealed in either fear or excitement. You weren’t quite sure. Footsteps grew closer to the door. Suddenly, it opened to reveal Coco. She looked at you through her sunglasses, almost scanning you. Breaking the silence, you asked “Velvet ready?” Coco responded with “Yeah, she’s ready.” She lowered her voice. “But she’s really nervous, try to get her to relax.” You winked to show you understood. Coco pulled the door open to reveal Velvet, standing in the center of the room.

    She wore a brown coat with a black dress underneath. She also wore brown leggings and black heels. Her hands were holding one another at her waist, and on one of her wrists she wore a golden bracelet with a bunny charm on it. As absolutely beautiful as she was, Coco was right. She was visibly nervous, from the look on her face to her red cheeks to her shaking legs. “Humor will calm her down.” You thought to yourself. You raised the rose in one hand and your other arm at an angle for her to take. “I believe these are yours.” She smiled and laughed nervously. The blush began to fade on her cheeks. You caught Coco nodding once out of the corner of your eye. Velvet walked up to you nervously. She took the rose in her hand and said “Thank you” sweetly. She smiled at you, which made you smile in return. She handed the rose to Coco. “On my nightstand.” She said. You laughed to yourself. Coco took the rose and set it on Velvet’s nightstand. Velvet took your arm in hers and walked out of the door. You could feel her arm slightly shaking. “Have fun.” Coco said. As she closed the door, she put her face to the crack in between. “Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.” Velvet turned, but before she could say anything, Coco slammed the door shut. Velvet sighed. “You look really nice.” You told her. She turned to you with a look of slight shock on her face. “Um, thanks.” She said with a nervous smile and a blush. You set the elevator to take you both to the first floor. The doors opened, and you both stepped inside. “So,” Velvet began. “I’ve gotta ask. Were you nervous about this at all?”

    * * *

    Arriving at the restaurant, you grabbed the door and held it open for Velvet. Letting go of your arm, she said “Thanks again.” She walked inside, and you followed. “You’re welcome.” Velvet looked around in amazement. The restaurant you were taking her to was nicer than she expected. “Wow.” She said. There was a bar with bottles colored with every color of the rainbow and then some. The counter was black, and so were the seats. The leather was red, attacked perfectly to the top. The tables, which were also black, but with a white cloth over them, had black chairs with red leather seats as well. The walls were lined with booths, some for four, some for two, one even for six. And of course, all the tables had a candle in the center. The carpet was red with golden stars, and the walls were black.

    “What is this, a six-star restaurant?” You laughed aloud. A voice spoke to you from the side, and it startled you both. “Four, actually, miss.” You both turned to see the waitress, in a black suit and tie. Her hair was black and grey, draped over her left shoulder, and one eye. The other eye was colored gold. She held a menu in her hands. “Okay.” Velvet said. “Welcome. May I show you to your seat?” You looked to her and said “Yeah, sure, thank you.” “Just…” Velvet said, leaning over to her. “One on the walls.” “Booth for two it is.” She began walking around the tables, and you both followed her. “Sorry,” Velvet said to you. “I don’t like sitting in the middle of restaurants, I feel too open.” “No, that’s fine. I feel the same, actually. I just hate being that exposed, ugh.” Velvet smiled and giggled. You arrived at your booth soon after. Velvet sat down, and you after. The waitress turned to you both and held the menu to her chest. “Good evening to you both. My name is Cinder, I’ll be your server tonight.” With a smile, you both said “Hi” to her. “I’m gonna go get more menus for you both. We’ll also have water here soon. Just sit tight, I’ll be right back.” You told her “Okay” and Velvet nodded. Cinder walked off with the menu. Turning to Velvet, who was taking off her coat and setting it behind her, you asked “You doing okay so far?” She was looking around at the lights in the ceiling. “Yeah, I’m good. Thanks for taking me out tonight. I have to admit, I was a little nervous about this, but I’m not really anymore.”

    “Good, I’m glad.”

    “To be honest, I needed a break tonight.”

    “How come?”

    “Remember that whole deal with Cardin getting in a pile of trouble for bullying me?”

    “Vividly, yes, why?”

    “His in-school suspension ends tomorrow. He’s gonna come for me for sure.”

    “Oh, I’m sorry. But no worries, I won’t let him hurt you.”

    “You- He’s gonna come for me, he’s gonna KILL you! Coco wasn’t kidding when she said he’d be after your head.”

    “Meh. What’s the worst that could happen? He’ll try to hurt me, I won’t let him, and he’ll get in trouble again.”

    “If you say so. But Yatsu wasn’t kidding when she said we’d keep an eye out for you. If I have to use my weapon, I will.”

    “Thanks, but I’m curious. What does your weapon do? I mean, there’s not just a little bunny in that box, is there?”

    She giggled. “No, no. It’s a camera. I take pictures of people with their weapons, and if I wait a while, like a long while, the camera builds a hard-light copy of the weapon, which I can use in battle. I only get one use out of each photo, though.”

    “That’s so cool! You should sign up for the Vytal tournament with that. Imagine the other team’s faces when you defeat them with their own weapons.”

    “Eh, I’m not sure I want to. Coco’s trying to talk me into it as well, but I still need to think about it.”

    “Well, you don’t have to if you don’t want to.”

    Just then, a short girl wearing the same type of suit from earlier walked to your table with two glasses of ice water. Half of her hair was a dark brown, and the other a bright pink. Her eyes were the same colors, but reversed. She set the glasses of ice water in front of you both and smiled. “Thank you!” You said to her. She simply nodded off in response and practically skipped away.

    Velvet began to drink the water, and you did the same. Velvet lowered the glass to the table quickly and brought her hand to her lips. You set your glass to the table slowly after and asked her “You okay? You allergic to water?” Ignoring you, she lowered her hand and said “The ice water’s cold.”

    You stared at her in confusion. She looked back innocently.

    “Yeah.” You said flatly. She started to laugh, and you did too. “It is.” You said before you both began to laugh a bit louder. “Ice will do that.” You told her. “Don’t be a pest.” Velvet said through laughter. You laughed harder and put your head in your hand.

    As you pulled yourselves together, Cinder came back with menus and appetizers. She set them both on the table and said “Here you go. I’ll be back in a few minutes to take your orders.” “Thank you, Cinder.” You said to her. “You’re welcome.” She said before strolling off. You and Velvet picked up your menus and looked through them. “By the way, you can order whatever.” Velvet looked up in shock. “Wha- Really?” “Yeah. It’s not my place to restrict what you eat.” Velvet was in disbelief, but she shrugged it off. “Alright, if you say so.” You both fell silent and looked through the menus for a moment.

    “Um…” Velvet said, looking up. You looked up to her. “What if I can’t decide?” “Then we’ll split something.” You looked down at the menu. “You like chicken salad?” “Uh, sure.” She said hesitantly. “Alright. A chicken salad it is.” “Ooh! Let’s also get a slice of pizza each!” You looked up at her. “Brilliant idea!” You said, pointing to her. She laughed. “So a large chicken salad and two slices of pizza.” You confirmed. “Sounds like a rather delicious plan.” She added. You laughed. Suddenly, your scroll vibrated from your pocket. Luckily, Velvet didn’t hear it. You ignored the scroll for the time being. “You want anything else?”

    “Nah, I’m good. Thanks.”

    “Okay, and now we just wait for Cinder.”

    “She seems pretty nice.”

    “Yeah, she does. But who was that that brought us the ice water?”

    “I don’t know, she didn’t say anything.”

    Just then, Cinder came back with a pad and paper. “You both ready to order?” She asked politely. “Yeah, we are.” You responded. “We’ll have a large chicken salad, and two slices of pizza.”

    “Okay, and what kind of pizza would you like?”

    You and Velvet froze.

    “Um, what kind of pizza do we want?”

    Velvet looked up. “BLT pizza.”

    “BLT pizza it is. I’ll be back with your food very soon.”

    Cinder walked away as you turned to Velvet. “BLT pizza?”

    “Yeah. It’s the best. Pizza with bacon, lettuce, and tomato on it. It’s SO GOOD.”

    “Well I guess I’m trying it tonight, so I sure hope so.”

    You both talked for a little while before you excused yourself to the restroom. “If you’re not back when the food gets here, I’m eating your pizza.” Velvet teased. You laughed sarcastically and walked off to the bathroom.

    Before you left to head back to the table, your scroll buzzed again. You remembered the time it had buzzed earlier and wondered what whoever was texting you wanted. It turned out to be Yang. “Hey, how’s the date going?” “Yo answer I’m bored”. You laughed while you typed out a quick response. “I’ll tell you everything when I get back, but great so far! Thanks for the advice, it’s working!” You hit send and put your scroll away. As you arrived back to the table, Velvet said “You’re lucky. No food yet.”

    After talking for a bit longer, Cinder brought you both the food you’d ordered. A chicken salad on a plate, right in the center of the table. That, and two slices of pizza. One in front of each of you. You both thanked Cinder and began eating as she walked away. “Hey hey hey,” Velvet said as you started for the chicken salad. You paused. “Eat the BLT pizza.”

    Reluctantly you took a bite, but it tasted great. Your eyes widened. Velvet’s face lit up as you enjoyed the pizza more and more. “I’m so glad you like it!” She said adorably, hopping in her seat.

    Your face was too full of pizza to respond.

    The both of you talked for the rest of the meal, and it went fantastically. You couldn’t have asked for it to go better. The meal was great, Velvet and you both made funny jokes and talked about weapons and that sort of thing. It went great.

    Cinder came by just as you were finishing the meal. “How is everything so far?” “Fantastic, thank you.” You told her. “I think I’ll take the check now, though.” “Okay. Glad to hear you enjoyed your food, the check will be here soon.” She strolled off. “That was an amazing meal.” Velvet said. “Thanks so much for taking me out.” “Thanks so much for letting me.” You responded. “There’s nobody I’d rather have here.” She blushed.

    As Velvet put her coat on, tiny footsteps came trotting to your table. It was that lady with the pink and brown hair from earlier. She handed you the check, and you took it with a smile. She stood, waiting to take it back when you were done. “How much is it?” Velvet asked. “Doesn’t matter, I’ve got it.” She looked up in shock. “Hey! Don’t spend your life savings on me, I’ll pay for my half of the meal.” “No you will not.” You said to her. “Seriously, I’ve got it. It’s okay.”

    “You sure?”

    “Yeah.”

    She slowly began to smile as you handed the lady the filled out check. “Say, what’s your name?” You asked her. She held up the nametag on her suit. “Hm. Neo. Well, thank you very much, Neo, have a good night.” She smiled and ran back to the back of the restaurant. You extended your hand for Velvet to take. “Oh, your hand now?” She said. “Why not?” You responded. She took your hand in hers, and you led her out of the restaurant.

    Night had fallen. It was cool outside, nice and perfect. You walked hand in hand with Velvet back to beacon. You felt like her arm was hugging yours. The walk was pretty. The path you both were taking had an open sidewalk between the school and the town. It was the path on the cliff to the left of the front of Beacon, and it was beautiful, especially at night. With no lights nearby, the stars shone bright and almost lit the way. Rather than black, the night had a dark blue color to it. You were almost back at Beacon now. You’d both been talking earlier, but now you were silent. “It’s really pretty out tonight.” Velvet said softly, breaking that silence and looking up at the shining white stars above in the clear sky. A gentle breeze blew by you both from the side, and her hair blew along with it, almost wrapping itself around the back of your head. “Yeah, it really is, but I’ve seen prettier.” You said, looking to her. “Really?” She asked, turning to you. “Where?” You kept looking at her. “Right there.” She smiled as her cheeks began to burn. Her ears fell to the sides of her head as she put her head on your shoulder. You released her hand and put your arm around her shoulder. “I had fun tonight.” You said softly. “Me too.” She said.

    “Look, I know we made a lot of jokes during tonight, and they were funny, don’t get me wrong,” She began. “But, let’s be serious for a minute. WAS this a date? Was this… Our first date?”

    “Well,” You responded. “Do you want it to be?”

    She hesitated. You decided to elaborate. “It won’t count as a date if you don’t want it to. Up to you.”

    “Yes.” You turned to look at her head resting against your shoulder. She looked up to you with those shining brown eyes. You saw a cute smile below them. “Yeah, it was our first date, and it was perfect.” You smiled, and rested your head on hers. “It really was. Again, there was nobody I would rather have taken out.” She lifted her arm to your shoulder. You turned onto the part of the sidewalk leading to Beacon. It was directly in front of you, but at a 45 degree angle.

    “Sweet.” You said.

    You moved your arm from her shoulder to begin running your fingers through her beautiful brown hair. You both stayed silent as you walked together back to Beacon. Velvet giggled once, but you both mainly stayed silent, just enjoying each other’s company. As you drew closer to the school, and as the path started to bend, a breeze again blew as Velvet spoke up.

    “So, if that was our first date…” She slowed down, and you with her. She lifted her head from your shoulder and turned to face you. Her hand rested on your other shoulder now. With the beautifully lit school to her side, she looked down, but had her eyes pointed up at you. Her hair blew over her shoulders and next to her face in the wind. She lifted her hand from your shoulder to brush it from her eye. Setting it behind her ear, she asked you “Can this be our first kiss?” She smiled, looking up at you. Her bunny ear bent over itself adorably. Her coat swayed gently in the wind.

    Of course you would kiss her.

    “Sure.” You said softly to her with a smile.

    You felt a spark in your eye as you rose your arm to her cheek and pulled her close. She wrapped her arms around you. One on your shoulder, the other at your hip. You ran your hand through her brown hair. Her hair felt warm, despite the chilling weather. Your other hand went to the one at your hip, and ran up her arm to her shoulder. The blowing wind suddenly stopped hitting you. It was still blowing, you just stopped feeling it. She slowly leaned forward, and pulled you close. Her eyes were close, and growing closer. They sparkled with sheer detail. They looked beautiful. She looked beautiful. But she soon closed those sparkling brown eyes as the distance closed between you two.

    The cold stopped. Time stopped. Real life stopped. Your eyes shut by themselves, and all you could see was the blackness of your eyelids. But that didn’t matter. You felt weightless. Almost floating off the ground. You felt relaxed, finally, like all that worry earlier had been for nothing. Her soft lips pressed gently against yours, almost hugging them. Her face felt warm, and welcoming. It felt like burying your face in a cloud. There was no feeling like it. Butterflies in your stomach flew rapidly. You suddenly felt your shoulder being squeezed as you felt her hand holding it tighter, pulling you closer, up against her. You held hers tighter in response, and pulled her to you. You felt her exhale through her nose gently, the warm air falling down your face and leaving it, turning to a bitter cold from the surrounding air. Her other hand lifted and buried itself in your (h/c) hair, and your hand continued running through hers.

    The moment was perfect.

    The connection you both held was abruptly but gently separated as you both seemed to lean back at the same time. As you opened your eyes, a rush of color poured into them. The true vibrancy of the world around you shone brilliantly in the starlight. Velvet’s eyes remained shut for a moment, before they gently flickered open. Velvet stared deep into your widened eyes, and you stared back into hers. They looked widened, but calm. One of her brown bunny ears stood straight up, pointing toward the sky above. The other was bent over itself, adorably curved down. Velvet’s mouth hung ever so slightly open. Her lips shone like glass in the distant moonlight. They gently closed together as a smile grew on her flawless face. You couldn’t help but smile as well.

    She lifted her arm to your other shoulder and stepped to your side without saying a word. You put your hand on her shoulder and moved it up and down. Her ears fell yet again as her head fell to your shoulder. You set your head on hers, and you could almost feel her smiling.

    “It’s cold out.” She said, breaking the emotional silence. “Let’s go inside.”

    “Let’s.”

    You both began to walk off, back to the school slowly, the wind blowing silently from the side. Velvet’s hair blew along with it, almost wrapping itself around your back.

Chapter 7A - Just Be Honest

    “I’ll sit her down and tell her.” You told Ruby.

    “Aww, that’s great!” She said, smiling. “Although I’m really not the person to talk to about it. I’d go to Blake if I were you. She’d know better than anyone how you should go about it.” You smiled and slowly stood up. “Okay, I will after classes tomorrow. I’ve got a lot on my mind right now, and I’m kinda tired. But thanks for everything, Ruby. I don’t know how to thank you.” She stood up. “Don’t. I’m just glad to help. I’ll tell Blake to come talk with you after classes tomorrow.” After a quick bear hug, she started for the door and let herself out. “By the way,” She said, holding the door for a moment, “I totally ship you guys.” “Get outta here!” You said back jokingly. Giggling, she pulled the door to a close.

    After her footsteps trailed off, all was quiet. Even the distant noise of the crickets outside seemed to silence itself. The silent ambience of the air seemed cold, but not in a bad way. You felt comfortable, happy, like you never wanted that moment to end, but you weren’t quite sure why. You felt content.

    Excited about tomorrow and what it would bring, talking to Blake, you went to bed a bit early. You needed your rest, if tomorrow was going to go well.

    Waking up the next morning felt like the morning of (favorite holiday). You were so excited for today, and just being able to tell Velvet how you felt. You were a blur getting ready, taking the time to make yourself look extra nice. But the day genuinely couldn’t have gone slower. Classes dragged on, but thankfully you met up with Velvet for lunch again. Hanging out with her felt nice, but new, in the sense that you looked at her in a new light now. There’s always that way you look at someone, and how different you look at someone when they’re just a friend or a crush or whatnot. It felt so comfortably different. Her brown eyes shined with happiness and joy when you told a joke, and her cheeks turned a bit red when she laughed too hard, that big smile plastered on her face like a work of art. Her tall, brown ears remained straight up as you talked, but they seemed to bend downwards when she laughed too hard, holding her sides and hunching over. Oh, how hard it was to resist the urge to just kiss her right then and there. If you could have gotten away with it, you would have.

    Damn social rules.

    The end of the day finally arrived, finally. You speed walked back to your dorm with a quiet smile on your face. Your pocket began buzzing all of a sudden, and it yanked you out of that moment like someone grabbed your hand and pulled. You reached for the scroll inside and opened it to see Blake giving you a call. Heading inside the building and walking through the lobby, you answered it. “Hey Blake, what’s up?” Her low voice responded quietly, “Hey, um, Ruby, said you, wanted to, talk to me about something?”

    “Yeah, I did. Good things, though. Nothing bad.”

    “Good to hear. She didn’t say much about what it was you wanted to discuss with me. She just kept laughing, like there was some big secret or something.”

    You looked around quickly, the lobby was empty. “Well, there is a big secret, but it doesn’t affect you, so no worries. I just need some advice about it, if you don’t mind.”

    “Um, sure. Yeah, that’s fine.”

    “Great! I’m in the lobby right now, mind coming down to meet me?”

    “Yeah, I can do that. On my way now.”

    “Okay, thanks, Blake. See you in a few.”

    “Bye.”

    She hung up the call.

    You closed your scroll and put it in your pocket. Having nothing else to really do for the next minute or so, you paced around the lobby for a while, thinking. “‘I’d go to Blake if I were you. She’d know better than anyone how you should go about it.’” Ruby’s voice echoed in your head. “I sure hope so. I don’t wanna mess this up.” You paused. “I should make sure Velvet’s free later. I guess I’ll do this tonight. Why not?” You pulled out your scroll again. It said the time was 2:40. “Not sure how long this talk will take. I want a few hours to collect my thoughts anyways. Say around 8.” Opening up your chat with Velvet, you texted “You free around 8? Want to talk to you about something.” “I guess I can’t say if it’s a good thing or not. I’m not sure how she’s gonna take this.”

    You hit send.

    Strangely enough, she began texting back immediately. Those dots under your message appeared right after you hit send. It caught you off guard. “How’d she… Did she know I was gonna text, or..?” You received the text from her. “Yeah, I’ll be at your room at 8:15.” At the end was a little panda emoji, which made you giggle. Just then, the elevator at the end of the room made a noise, signaling it was about to open. You closed the chat and put your scroll away. As you paced to the elevator, the doors opened with a low hum. Blake stood within, hands joined at her front, that black bow above her head still. You raised your hand to wave to her. She rose her arm and waved back quietly. “Hey.” You said upon reaching her. “Hi. So, everything’s okay?” She asked, a hint of concern in her tone. “Eh, I guess. That’s kinda what I wanted to talk with you about.” She rose her shoulders and said “Okay.”

    As you began to walk out of the building, you started the conversation. “So, you know Velvet Scarlatina, right? Brown bunny ears, kinda shy, carries that little box with her?”

    “Yeah, I know her as an acquaintance more than anything else, though. She’s that girl you protected from Cardin, right?”

    “Sheesh, news travels fast around here.”

    “People talk.” Blake said with a shrug.

    After a pause, you turned your head to her and said “Speaking of, how good of a secret keeper are you?” She reached up and tightened her bow. “Pretty good. Why?”

    “Um, I don’t want you telling anyone else about this talk, or what I’m gonna tell you here, can you do that?” She looked to you with concern in her yellow eye. “Yeah, my lips are sealed. What’s going on?”

    You tied your hands around your back and kicked the ground in front of you, but continued walking. You looked up to find yourself outside, walking past a common area, those areas with the grass and the benches. You assumed you were so lost in conversation you forgot to pay attention to where you went. “Um, well, recently, I’ve started developing feelings for Velvet. I… I, want to tell her how I feel, but I don’t want to take her on a big date or anything like that. Her and I are both too shy for that. I just want to sit down with her for a one-on-one talk about it. Just me telling her how I feel about her, but I’m not sure what to do, or how to say it. I told Ruby something similar, I think, and she said you were a better person to talk to about it than her.” Blake nodded lightly. “She’s not wrong.”

    You turned to Blake, who was staring to the ground thinking, her hands at her sides. “Well, if I were Velvet, I’d definitely find that sweet, so you’re on the right track.” You smiled as she continued. “But there’s no need to stress about what to say. You feel this way, and that’s enough. Just speak your heart.” You raised an eyebrow in skepticism, but she kept going. “Just start talking, and you’ll be fine, I’m sure.”

    “Wh- What do you mean by that, Blake?”

    “Well, what exactly DO you feel about Velvet? I mean, you said you like her, but elaborate. Why do you like her?”

    You started talking. “Well, um, for one thing, she’s adorable. Something about the way she acts, I don’t know, it’s just cute. She’s also really pretty, I’ve never gotten lost in someone’s eyes, like I have with Velvet’s. She’s really funny, too. And sweet. She offered to help me with my work, and she texts sweetly with these little panda emojis, and…” You trailed off. Blake looked up at you. But you weren’t even looking at her, you just stared forward, a smile growing on your face. “She’s unlike anybody I’ve ever met. I’ve seen how Cardin acts to her, and it just breaks my heart. I wanna treat her well, to make up for how rude he is. She cares about me, and I her. She deserves to be treated well, and I know I can do that. I…” You noticed Blake staring at you out of the corner of your eye. You turned to her, confused. “What?” You asked. “Who says you’ve got nothing to say?”

    You realized everything you’d just said, and were a bit awestruck yourself. “Well, I’d sure want someone to say all that to me.” Blake laughed a deep laugh without opening her mouth. “Just tell her all that. Sit her down, say ‘I need to tell you something’, and just, go.” You nodded in agreement. “I’ve heard that you can’t get it wrong if it’s the truth.”

    “That’s good advice.” You said flatly, with a smile. “Mm.” Blake said. “If I may, it really is sweet how you care about her. She’s gonna be a very lucky girl when you tell her.” You smiled bigger and nodded, and then turned to look forward at the trees form the common areas, the leaves blowing ever so gently in the breeze. “Say, when are you going to tell her everything? I’d make my move now before someone else does.”

    “Tonight, actually, and that’s even more of a reason why, I guess.”

    “Really?”

    “Yeah. I’m not sure why, but a part of me just… Needs her to know.”

    “That’s understandable.” There was a pause as the quiet breeze blew by you both, blowing Blake’s bow and your (f/c) hoodie aside slightly.

    “There’s no way she’s gonna say no, (Y/n). A woman can’t say no to something that romantic. Still, I wish you luck. It can be nerve racking to tell someone you have feelings for them, but it happens all the time. Once you get into it, it just gets natural.”

    “Thanks, Blake. Thanks a lot. I owe you one.” You said with a quick smile her way. “Hm.” She muttered, again without opening her mouth. Just then, a buzzing broke the silence in the air. Blake checked her pocket to find her scroll lighting up. She opened it to see a call from Yang. “I’d better take this. Tell me how it goes with Velvet!” “Okay, I will! Bye!” Blake waved and turned to head back into the building. “Hey, Yang, what’s up?” You pulled out your scroll and checked it as Blake’s conversation got quieter as she grew further away. “No, I didn’t forget about the date, I’m getting ready now! When will you be ready?”

    You laughed to yourself.

    Suddenly, a tune played from your scroll in your hand. You checked it to see Velvet texting you, saying, “I’m sorry I didn’t ask earlier, but is…” The message was cut off by the tiny notification slide. You tapped on it to open it and see the full message, which read “I’m sorry I didn’t ask earlier, but is everything okay? What is it you wanna talk to me about?” You hesitated to answer. “Um…” You said aloud to nobody. In the distance, you heard the front doors to Beacon opening. You heard two voices talking faintly in the same direction, but you couldn’t tell what about. You began typing a response. “Yeah, I’m fine. I’d rather tell you in person, though.” You waited a moment and hit send. You heard footsteps headed your way from behind. They were faint, but elegant. You looked over your shoulder, and your heart skipped a beat when you saw a familiar pair of long brown bunny ears headed your way.

    It was Velvet, staring down at her scroll.

    She stared down for a moment, probably reading your message to her. The wind blew slightly harder than it had a moment ago. Leaves flew past Velvet as her brilliant brown hair lept up to her side. She hunched over a bit, and looked to where the wind was coming from. She saw you out of the corner of her eye, and waved. The wind slowed down as she strolled towards you. “Well,” She said adorably. “Here I am.” You smiled. Seeing her just made you happy. “Although I didn’t know it was gonna be this windy.” She looked over to the wind again. On instinct, you took your (f/c) hoodie off and handed it to her. “Wha- Really? Won’t you get cold?” “Doesn’t matter.” You said sweetly. She hesitantly took the (f/c) hoodie from you and put it on. It looked nice on her. The (f/c) worked on her. “Okay, what’s up?” You paused for a moment, and just as she was about to speak up, you told her “Let’s go sit.” She nodded and headed for the nearby common area. You began to follow as your  legs turned to jelly. The growing cold of the air began to sting your bear arms. You wrapped them around your (favorite book) shirt and felt your heart begin to pound beneath.

    This was it.

    This was where you risked everything.

    This was where you told Velvet how you felt about her.

    (Author’s note - Play this while ya read this bit whydoncha www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwMDL4…)

    You nervously sat down on the icy bench next to the bunny, who smiled sweetly at you. The wind blew past you both from the backside of the bench. Velvet’s hair flew elegantly in the wind. You inhaled to speak, but wound up just exhaling and looking at her. She giggled quietly.

    “‘Somebody have a crush on the bunny?’ ‘She was totally gonna ask you out! I’ll bet you she was!’ ‘(Y/n), you like her.’ ‘what exactly DO you feel about Velvet?’ ‘Sit her down, say ‘I need to tell you something’, and just, go.’” All these voices rang through your head quickly. “Here goes.” You told yourself.

    “Velvet…” She smiled. “Look, I know we’ve only known each other for a few days now, but they’ve been a pretty great few days. I’m really glad that I met you, and I’m really glad that we know each other.” She smiled bigger, a blush forming on her cheeks. “I mean, you’re great. You’ve got a great sense of humor, you’re different from anybody else I’ve ever met. I always feel happy hanging out with you. Whenever you come into the room, there’s just this… joy, that overcomes it. It’s always great to have you around.” She shrugged. “And you see the good in everybody. You’re really sweet, and kind, and polite, and, dare I say beautiful.” The blush burned on her cheeks as she began to shiver. “I’d go on, but, it’s cold out here.” She giggled for just a moment. “So, I guess…” You turned your body to face hers. “Those are just a few of the reasons…” Her eyes widened as the smile slowly faded from her red face. “I’d like to be…” You hesitated. But this was the point of no return. This was where it happened. This was where you told her. What you wouldn’t give to wake up right about now, but at the same time you didn’t want to.

    “More, than friends…”

    Her mouth opened slightly as her cheeks burned more than they ever had before. A sparkle went off in her eyes, as they stared directly into yours. You stared back. “I’ve seen how Cardin treats you, and it’s absolutely terrible. You deserve to be treated like a princess for the amazing person that you are. I’m more than happy to treat you that way, because I care about you, I really do, and I’d be overjoyed if I got to spend time making you as happy as you’ve made me.”

    Her jaw quivered as the wind seemed to stop. A deeper silence than that of the night before drenched itself over you both. You could have heard a pin drop a mile away, it was so quiet. Velvet didn’t say anything. She just looked back at you, and-

    She started crying.

    Just as you were going to wipe the tear away, she smiled slowly. Shaking, she exhaled sharply. Her voice breaking, she finally responded.

    “I feel the same way.”

    Your heart felt like it stopped as she took her gloved hand in yours. “What you said… That’s the nicest and sweetest thing I’ve ever heard. Meant the world to me.” You smiled, as you began to feel like you were going to cry yourself. “(Y/n)...” Your jaw quivered.

    “I’d be honored to be your girlfriend.”

    You felt that same spark in your eye as she slowly rose her other hand from her side. She turned herself to face you, and rose the gloved hand to your cheek. She wiped away a tear that you didn’t even notice was there. Her fingers ran slowly through your (h/c) hair, and you enjoyed it. Suddenly, her hand began to press against the back of your head. The blowing wind suddenly stopped hitting you. It was still blowing, you just stopped feeling it. She slowly leaned forward, and pulled you close. You found yourself leaning forward yourself soon after. Your hand raised and met the back of her head. Her hair felt warm, despite the chilling weather. Her eyes were close, and growing closer. They sparkled with tears and sheer detail. They looked beautiful. She looked beautiful. But she soon closed those sparkling brown eyes as the distance closed between you two.

    The cold stopped. Time stopped. Real life stopped. Your eyes shut by themselves, and all you could see was the blackness of your eyelids. But that didn’t matter. You felt weightless. Almost floating off the bench. You felt relaxed, finally, like all that worry earlier had been for nothing. Her soft lips pressed gently against yours, almost hugging them. Her face felt warm, and welcoming. It felt like burying your face in a cloud. There was no feeling like it. Butterflies in your stomach flew rapidly. You suddenly felt your hand being squeezed as you felt hers holding it tighter. Your hand was below hers, so you let it sit. You felt her exhale through her nose gently, the warm air falling down your face and leaving it, turning to a bitter cold from the surrounding air. Her other hand buried itself in your (h/c) hair, and your hand in hers.

    The moment was perfect.

    The connection you both held was abruptly but gently separated as you both seemed to lean back at the same time. As you opened your eyes, a rush of color poured into them. The true vibrancy of the world around you shone brilliantly in the afternoon sun. Velvet’s eyes remained shut for a moment, before they gently flickered open. The tears stopped from both of your faces. Velvet stared deep into your widened eyes, and you stared back into hers. They looked widened, but calm. One of her brown bunny ears stood straight up, pointing toward the sky above. The other was bent over itself, adorably curved down. Velvet’s mouth hung ever so slightly open. Her lips shone like glass in the distant sunlight. They gently closed together as a smile grew on her flawless face. You couldn’t help but smile as well.

    “It’s cold out.” She said, breaking the emotional silence. “Let’s go inside.”

    “Let’s.”

    You stood up and extended your hand for her to take. She wrapped her gloved fingers around yours and rose slowly. You turned to the walkway, and she followed next to you. She took your hand in hers and elegantly wrapped her warm hand around yours at your side. You felt like her arm was hugging yours. You both slowly began for the front entrance to the school. The wind blew silently from the side, and her hair blew along with it, almost wrapping itself around the back of your head.

    The elevator doors to your dorm’s floor opened with a low pitched shoving noise. Velvet held your hand close, and you tighten your grip on hers. As you opened the door to your room, Ruby walked out of hers the next door down. She looked at you and was about to wave when she saw your hands interlocked at your sides. She took a double take and widened her eyes, staring down. Velvet smiled as she giggled and blushed. Her eyes shut for just a moment as you walked inside. She soon followed and closed the door behind her. You turned to face her, her cheeks burning. You let her soft hand go as you lifted your hand to her face, to bring it in for another kiss. She happily accepted, and wrapped her arms around you. One on your shoulder, the other at your hip. Her face felt warm and comfortable, like a heated blanket wrapped delicately around your face. As your lips pressed gently against hers, you felt her start to smile. You pulled away slowly. Her eyes stared back into yours with childlike curiosity and happiness. Her ears bent over themselves yet again in that cute way. Your hand lowered to her shoulder slowly. “Let’s go sit.”

    “Let’s.”

    You paced over to the drawer and opened it, revealing your computer inside. Velvet threw the covers off the nearest bed and tucked herself in. You lied down next to her and threw the covers over you. Her ears slowly fell to the sides of her head as she moved the pillow behind you both to hold your heads. You set up (favorite movie) on (whatever streaming service you use if you don’t use one make one up). “This movie is my favorite.” She said quietly. You lifted your arm and buried it under her hair and behind her head. It rested on the shoulder opposite you. She moved her head to the side and buried it on your chest, facing the screen. “Mine too.” She giggled. “Another thing we have in common.” You reached up and shut the light on the nightstand. Velvet smiled, and you did too. The movie’s opening credits rolled.
