Setting: During FFX, Calm Land
Theme + Number: Stay awake (8)
Summary: Rikku getting a little impatient with Wakka who never managed to stay awake long enough for her.
Rikku sneaked a few peeks at her companion for the night watch, her fingers twisting her braids back and forth. She tugged her own hair that caused a sharp pain on her scalp forcing herself to stay awake for the rest of the night. She moved herself a little closer to him, trying hard not to alarm him who had been sitting there together with her on the huge clearings.
She poked his shoulders lightly at first, when he gave no response, she decided to poke him harder.
Increasing her strength, she almost pushed the man right into the ground if he wasn't awakened by then.
"What was that for?" Wakka snorted sleepily.
"We're supposed to be on watch, remember?"
"I know but... don't worry about it, Rikku." He yawned while stretching himself and cracking a few tired joints. He played with his blitzball for a few minutes and decided to give in to sleep again.
Rikku pouted as she watched Wakka started snoring again; she picked up a couple of tiny stones from the dry ground and threw them towards him. The stones hit him but never served the purpose of waking him up. She curled up and rested her chin onto her knees with her lips still pouted, as she thought back on the other night that they had had the night watch duty together.
She was all excited and nervous that she finally got him to herself alone for the night, and almost too eager to surprise him about some of her feelings towards him. She was talking happily and had tried her best to tune into the topic.
Till she turned her head and found him asleep.
Rikku picked up another couple of tiny stones from the ground and threw at him again.
"You dork, you just never keep yourself awake for more important stuffs."
