Adventure Time | Noah + Oliver
“That is very true. But it wasn’t. So it was me making a fool of myself,” Oliver said, shrugging a bit. However, he didn’t think it mattered too much. It obviously didn’t bother her, and so he wasn’t going to let it bother him. “Oh, great. I’ll be forever in your mind as the one who made innuendos on our first date,” he said with a laugh. And then he paused, biting his lip. Was this really a date, or did he just want it to be? “My writing, huh? I’ve never shown anyone my writing,” he said, taking a fry in his hand and rolling it back and forth. “Maybe that will be another first,” he said, grinning over at her. If he was to show anyone his writing, it would be her. He felt most comfortable around her, and knew that she wouldn’t make fun of it. Maybe she’d even appreciate it.
“Ah, I see. No problem, really,” he said with a small smile. He didn’t want to embarrass her, and really hoped he hadn’t. However, he was glad when she took his hand. He felt as if she trusted him a bit more with that gesture. At least, he hoped so anyway. “No, it really wouldn’t have been,” he said softly, squeezing her hand gently, almost encouragingly. “You could do whatever you set your mind to, I’m sure,” he said with a gentle smile. She seemed strong, independent in a way. There was no doubt in his mind that she could overcome this if she really tried. She acted almost as if she thought anything to do with her was a waste of time, which he thought was ridiculous. He had found that she was a sweet girl, and he really did want to spend more time with her. “Well, they had an afterschool program. But my parents thought it would be a waste of money,” he said with a shrug. He had never really seen the appeal, but it did sound beautiful coming from Noah. “That would be kind of you,” he said with a smile, looking down at the table. He wouldn’t mind learning some Spanish if it meant more time with Noah. “I”m really not all that great,” he said, shaking his head. No one had ever thought that about him before, he knew that was a fact. But maybe she was different. “Tell that to the girls at my old school,” he said, rolling his eyes. Most of them thought he was weird and not worth their time. But again, Noah was different. “Hey, no, I’ve got it,” he said, reaching for the bill. He took his wallet out of his pocket and made sure to pay for both of their meals. “I was the one to invite you out, after all. It would only make sense for me to pay for it,” he said with a smile.
Noah smiled, her nose wrinkling up.”I w-wouldn’t say fool… it was k-kinda c-cute..” she chuckled. Then, when he referred to all of this as a date, Noah’s eyes widened a bit and she could feel the blush return to her face. Without meaning to, she bit her lip, mirroring him. She hadn’t really thought about it, but wasn’t that what this was? They were doing all the things that people do on dates, weren’t they? She didn’t really know, all she had to go off of was what she’d read in books and seen in movies, but then again that’s what everyone went off of, she supposed. She found herself not finding it hard to see it that way, especially since Oliver had called it that, he had to be thinking it. “I-Is this… a date?” She asked him, her heart-rate climbing up slightly. Noah nodded, a smile creeping up on her face. “A f-first of many…” Hopefully… she thought.
Noah wiped at her eyes again, praying she would stop crying, she absolutely hated it. “I’ve j-just… no one h-has ever, s-said anything like th-that to me bef-f-fore…” she said quietly. Suddenly,she felt the strong urge rise up inside of her to want to move over to him and sit beside him, hold onto him and settle into his side. But instead she chewed her lip, her eyes on their hands. “You could do whatever you set your mind to, I’m sure,” Once again, Noah didn’t know really what to say. Oliver seemed to believe in her so much, much more than anyone ever had, and much more than she felt she ever could herself. And she wanted that, she wanted to believe in herself, know that she could really do whatever she’d set her mind to. She wished she could have a piece of that confidence and keep it with her everywhere she went. “I… I dunno… m-most of the t-time, it just s-seems I’m a h-h-huge disappointm-ment,” she sighed. Noah smiled when he looked down at the table. “Well, th-then voy a empezar a habl-lar español más te ro-rodea. Transl-lation, I will st-start speaking it m-m-more around you.” she said. She couldn’t help but frown a little bit when he said he wasn’t that great, because she surely believed the opposite. “But you are Oliver…” She said strongly, because in her eyes, he was amazing, every passing moment proving that to her. She wanted him to see it the way she did. “Th-those girls are j-just blind… they can’t s-see how w-wonderful you are…” she shook her head, her thumb softly running over the side of his hand as their fingers still lay locked together. When he took the bill, Noah chewed her lip some and played with her hair. “Y-you don’t need to… at l-least let me p-pay half…” she said, feeling the need to contribute. Even just a little bit, though she knew the twenty five dollars in her wallet was all that she had.
Hey everyone, I’m sorry it’s taking so long to get this show on the road, i’ve just been having some difficulty really being able to have time to get things done. But, Saturday will definitely be the day we get things officially rolling and ready to go :D

Adventure Time | Noah + Oliver
“Well, that explains everything,” Oliver said with a laugh. However, he was still smiling. She made him feel comfortable, and he knew he could get used to that. “Of course it would be me. I told you my mouth gets me into trouble,” he said, shrugging. Even so, he seemed to be not as self conscious around her. It felt good, and he knew he could get used to that. No one had really ever been willing to spend much time with him, and it was nice to finally have some friends to spend time with. They actually seemed to really like him, and that was a new experience. “Well, good. I’m glad you agree,” he said with a small smirk. He really would be able to spend more time with the girl, and that just seemed like it would be good for the both of them.
“Yeah, really,” he said softly. She seemed to not know how to take all of this, and he wanted to change that. However, he was the same way. If she would insist on complementing him, he would refuse it point blank. “Don’t get all emotional on me,” he tried teasing once more, reaching out for her hand to try and comfort her. “I guess that’s true. I mean, if he made enough money, he should’ve gotten you help. You would’ve done better in class,” he said softly. He already didn’t like the sound of her father. He sounded quite like his parents, and he didn’t think she deserved to be treated like he was. “Exactly. It makes you Noah,” he said with a small grin. He was beginning to like this girl a lot, and wondered where that would get him. If he had to go back to his family, he didn’t want to have too many attachments to the students here. It wouldn’t be fair to them. “Oh. I see. That’s pretty cool,” he said with a smile. “I’ve always wanted to learn a language. They just never offered any back at my school,” he said, ignoring the fact that she was trying to cover up something she said. Every family had their secrets, right? “Ah, I’ll have to tell that to all the British guys the girls fawn over,” he said with a gentle smile, wondering if she really thought that highly of him. “Well, I can’t deny that I’m sweet,” he teased, looking down at the table once more. He didn’t know what else to do but make a joke out of it, it was just such a foreign concept to have someone actually like him for him. Everyone he knew before would always just tolerate him, but Noah seemed to genuinely enjoy his company. Maybe he could find a friend in her after all.
Noah laughed and grabbed a chip. “Hey, it c-could’ve easily been me.” She said, popping the chip into her mouth. “This is d-definitely a mom-ment to go in the v-vault,” She said, tapping her forehead. Then she closed her eyes, twisted that finger like a key and made a clicking noise. “And saved!” she grinned at him. Noah just smiled widely at him, her heart fluttering again. “M-maybe next time you c-can show m-me some of your wr-writing,” she said, remembering that he was a writer. They did have creative writing together, and she’d heard some of the things he’d written for the class, but she wanted to see the ones he did on his own. She was increasingly curious about him, she wanted to really get to know him, inside and out.
"I’m s-sorry," Noah said quietly, wiping at her face. "M-my eyes can b-be a little extra l-leaky somet-times…" She laughed nervously at herself, looking down at the table with embarrassment, but taking his hand anyway when he reached for hers. She slowly wove their fingers together, taking a picture of it with her mind to draw later. The contact between them made it a little easier to trust him, made his words just a little easier to believe. "H-he could’ve… but, it would’ve b-been a waste of his m-money anyw-way…" she said, stating the point her father had made to her. Any time or money spent on her was never worth it. "I w-w-wouldn’t have b-been able t-to do it…" she shrugged. She couldn’t help but to smile back when he smiled at her, wondering why it was that Oliver didn’t seem to think he was wasting his time with her as well. She thought of all the things he probably could be doing that would be way better than wasting his time with her. The fact that he’d been sitting here in this restaurant for so long with her, not trying to hurry and pay and leave, even said he wanted to spend more time with her later, blew her mind frankly. She wondered for a moment if she’d just fallen asleep in her room earlier and was dreaming all of this, because this kind of thing just didn’t happen to her. Ever. "Y-your school didn’t off-fer languages? Th-that’s w-weird," she questioned, glad that it seemed he hadn’t caught her slip up. "I c-could always t-teach you spanish, or at l-least try," she said with a small smile. "Hearing it sp-spoken works b-better than taking a cl-class." Noah chuckled, her cheeks still burning red. "You are sw-sweet though… and you’re understand-ding, and easy t-to talk to," she said, looking up at him. "You’re a gr-great guy Ollie. Any g-girl who got to c-call you th-their own, would b-be very l-lucky…" She looked back down at the table, playing with what was left of her food and noticing the waitress set down the bill beside them. She reached out for it, and into her bag to pay for their meal.
