This takes place only a few days after chapter 2
It was lunch time and Dyx and the girls were all reunited like they always do. Between all the different topics and occasional tea spilling, the subject of the Mako came out of the sudden. "Why are we bringing this up? I thought we were going to ease our minds, not torment them" Dyx said as he was uncomfortable with the subject that was up at the moment. "First, we need a bit of background in such hate towards him" Kuvira responded. "And it's the third fight this week, that ain't good for you" Opal said complementing Kuvira's words. "I appreciate your concern O, but I don't need this kind of therapy" The blonde guy said in return. "C'mon Dyx, Mako is a nice guy. Why you hate him so much?" Asami asked. "Hate is a strong and I need a reason to, which I don't. I would say that I don't tolerate him" Dyx stated. "And why is that?" Opal asked. "I don't wanna give details, this subject is really uncomfortable for me" Dyx said sitting straight. "Alright 'xerus, we'll leave you be" Kuvira said slightly raising her hands in surrender.
"Korra you've been quiet for the last few minutes, you alright?" Kuvira asked concerned. "Yeah, I'm good" Korra quickly responded "I was just seeing how you three pressured Braids to talk" She added with a grin. "And I forgot how much you enjoy to mortify me lately" Dyx said rolling his eyes afterwards. "It's entertaining" Korra chuckled. "Korra, leave the poor guy alone" Asami said defending the braided guy. "It's okay A, I know how to handle her" The blonde guy said placing his hand on the raven girl's shoulder.
After having a juicy conversation, putting aside the subject of Mako of course, Dyx and Opal were on their way to the library to finish a work that the blonde guy didn't finished in class and the due was the next day. Being now oddly alone, Opal remained her eyes on him for a long while. "I can feel you watching me, O" Dyx noticed. "Your baby face is distracting" Opal said with a giggle. "I don't have a baby face" He said looking up at her.
"You have a baby face when your too focused on something and when your face is shaved" The tan skin girl mentioned. "So you're insinuating that I look better with my beard?" The blonde guy asked quirking an eyebrow. "I'm not insinuating anything Dyxie. With or without beard, you still look cute" She stated as Dyx couldn't help but to smile at the compliment. "You're cute as well sweetheart" He said without thinking then his eyes widen after realizing what he just said to her. Dyx likes to speak his mind off but he tends to reserve a few words for himself, though it wasn't the first time he called Opal sweetheart.
"Dyxie" Opal said with a smile "That's sweet of you" She added. "You think so?" Dyx said nervously as a light blush came across his face. "Do you think I would lie to you?" The tan skin woman asked rhetorically leaning closer to him. "Would you believe me if I said that without even thinking?" The blonde guy said in return looking into her eyes. "And that's when you're the most honest" She pointed out. "I don't wanna sound like an asshole right now, but I really need to finish this up before I end up getting a speech of responsibility tomorrow" Dyx said scratching his chin. "Right, we can continue this talk later blondy" Opal said sitting straight.
Ten minutes later, they both had finished and Dyx and Opal decided to head to the school court. Opal had climbed onto Dyx's back and he carried her all the to the court, which that didn't bother him cause she was as light as a feather. For their surprise, the other girls were there so their alone time was practically over. "Ladies" Dyx said as he approached the girls. "Hi Dyx" Asami and Kuvira said at the same time. "Hi, Braids" Korra said slightly waving her hand "You up for a volleyball match?" She asked. "I'm up for it" The blonde guy responded and shrugged. "Why you carried Opal all the way here by the way?" Asami asked. "He owed me a piggy back ride" Opal responded.
"What she just said" Dyx added. "These two are married and they don't know it" Kuvira joked. "Shut up 'vira" The braided guy said as Opal climbed off his back. "Are we gonna play or what?" Korra said crossing her arms. "Don't rush me or I'll leave you hanging" Dyx said in return as he took off his hoodie handing it to Asami.
The three girls were now alone while Dyx and Korra were in their one on one volleyball match. Long minutes of conversation between the three girls, Dyx came back with his nose bleeding again. "Does any of you have tissues?" Dyx asked. "Did you threw hands with Korra?" Asami asked concerned. "Korra accidentally hit me with the ball and since I haven't completely healed from the fight with Mako, I'm fucked up again" The blonde guy responded. "Sit down" Opal said pointing at the bench. "Opal, I'm fi-" "Sit down, I'm not gonna repeat myself" Opal interrupted him and Dyx had no other option to do what she said.
Korra was about to drop a comment then Kuvira spoke for so as if she knew what the dark skin girl was about to say. "The one time that Dyx refuted Opal, things didn't end well for him" Kuvira said as Korra and Asami turned their sight towards her. "Damn, I underestimated her in so many ways" Korra said rubbing the back of her neck. "So he did" Asami commented.
"Head back" Opal said at the blonde guy and he simply obeyed her without saying a word. Opal climbed onto his lap to have a better view at his nose and heal him. "And you had to pick the worst position here" Dyx commented and the tan skin woman lightly smacked his face and pushed it back "Hey, I don't need any more damage!" The braided guy protested. "Then keep your stupid comments to yourself" Opal said sternly. "Ooh" Korra chuckled as she had to witnessed Dyx being under Opal's control, which it was quite fun for her to see. "Say something, I fucking dare you" Dyx said at Korra. "Don't move" Opal said as she began to get irritated and Dyx simply groaned as a response.
The tan skin girl used a make up remover wipe to clean the blood from the blonde guy's face and shoved two tissues up his nose in case he was still bleeding. "Done" Opal said patting his chest as she got off his lap. "I was starting to get comfortable with you sitting there" Dyx said teasingly. "Don't get used to it" Opal responded with a wink. "Are you one hundred percent sure that these two didn't had a thing?" Korra asked. "I'm now starting to have my doubts about it" Kuvira responded as the bell rang "I'll see you girls in class" Dyx said getting up from the bench and grabbed his hoodie and headed off to class followed by Opal. "These two have a thing and they don't want to admit it" Korra commented. "Agreed" Asami and Kuvira said at the same time
