Dyx had disconnected from the group chat when he heard a knock on his door. “Come in” The blonde guy said as he already knew who it was. Opal opened the door and quickly walked into the room closing the door behind her “Care to explain about what you said on the chat?” The tan skin woman said crossing her arms. “Relax sugar cube, that was something I said to mess with them” Dyx said waving his hand a bit “I just like to see the world burn sometimes” He added. “You surely are an idiot” Opal said slightly chuckling. “Call me whatever you please, baby” He said with a wink “Go to sleep now, we have a meeting with Korra and Asami tomorrow” He said smiling softly. “Goodnight, Dyxie” She said walking out of the blonde guy’s room.
The Next Day
Dyx, Opal and Kuvira had arrived to the Sato Estate and the butler had leaded them to the pool. “Hey girls” Dyx with his typical bright smile. “Sup Braids” Korra said slightly waving her hand. “Hi Dyx” Asami said with a soft smile. “Can you spill the tea about the platonic thing you mentioned last night?” The dark skin girl said out of the blue. “You mean hours earlier cause it all happened at 3:00am” Dyx corrected. “Whatever, we’re waiting for an explanation” Korra said in return. “More like you’re waiting for that explanation” Asami said crossing her arms “I actually don’t care about what these two had or have” She added referring to Opal and Dyx. “I’m willing to explain that but first, I need to relax and cool off from the three cups of coffee I drank before coming here” The blonde guy said while taking off his shirt to take a dip in the pool.
“So you’re telling that you said all that to provoke Opal?” Kuvira asked quite shocked. “Yep” Dyx simply responded. “Now that is very unpleasant” Korra said putting her lips “I thought you had something juicy to tell” She added. “ As I can see now, “Xerus is not thhe type of guy to drop a juicy ass theme out of the sudden” Kuvira said in thought. “I agree with you” Asami said to Kuvira in return but kept her eyes on the blonde guy noticing that he was hiding something from them “Hey Dyx, you wanna come to the racetrack with me?” the raven girl asked changing the subject. “Is Korra coming with us?” Dyx asked in return. “Nah, you two have fun beating each other asses” Korra said waving her hand a bit. “We’ll catch you up later” Opal added. “Alrighty then, let’s go emerald eyes” The blonde guy said as he got out of the pool.
After going to the racetrack and having a two lap race, which none of them won, Asami and Dyx sat down on the bleachers resting from all the adrenaline they had on the track when she decided to bring the Opal subject. “Dyx, I want you to be honest with me” Asami said looking at the Dyx. “What are you talking about A?” Dyx asked furrowing his eyebrows as he ws confused. “I’m talking about you and Opal” The raven girl clarified. “I already said it, I didn’t had anything with her” The blonde guy responded while tying up his hair in a ponytail. “But you have feelings for her, that’s what you’re not mentioning” Asami said turning towards him to have more visual contact. “What are you-” Dyx stopped when the raven girl quirked an eyebrow at him and he let out a sigh in defeat “How did you know?” He asked in a low tone. “I know when someone is hiding something” The raven girl simply responded “I know we barely know each other, but I can guarantee you that your secret is safe with me” She added placing her hand on the blonde guy’s shoulder. “Honestly, you’re the one I can trust this sort of thing” Dyx said smiling nervously. “Go on and tell me then, my lips are completely sealed” Asami said winking in confirmation.
Dyx told her everything. Yes, he went three years back but he didn’t wanted to miss any details as he needed to vent a bit about the whole thing. Let me tell you something, hiding a thing like that and neutralizing feelings to not ruin a friendship is not an easy thing, believe me on this one. “Wow, how did you even managed to keep those feelings to yourself?” Asami asked quite surprised. “I have no fuckin’ clue, A” Dyx responded “I’ve been hiding them fro too long that I even forgot they were still there” He added. “So that’s why you decided to come back to the Republic City, right?” The raven girl asked in assumption. “In some point. The main reason I came back here was because I got tired of the earth kingdom” The blonde guy said in response. “And what are you gonna do about this Dyx? You can’t hide your feelings for so long” Asami pointed out. “I’ve managed to hide them ‘til this day, a more time won’t affect me” Dyx stated “I don’t wanna compromise my relationship by confessing to her when I’m not completely sure if she’s into me” He added. “I give you the reason there light eyes” The raven girl said agreeing with the blonde guy. “Promise me that you won’t tell this to anyone, specially to your girlfriend” Dyx said quite serious. “Hey, I know that Korra can’t keep a secret” Asami said with a giggle “Your secret is safe with me” She added with a smile. “Uff, I really needed to get that out of my chest” The blonde guy chuckled. “Venting can be helpful sometimes, trust me” The raven girl commented. “What else can we do ‘round here besides driving and swimming?” Dyx asked changing the subject. “Want me to give you a tour pretty boy?” Asami asked in return. “You know I can’t say no to that” Dyx said getting up from the bleacher.
“So, who won the race?” Opal asked. “Neither of us” Asami said in response. “What?” Kuvira said quirking an eyebrow slightly confused. “How is that even possible?” Korra asked. “We reached the finish line at the same time and we refused to do an extra lap” Dyx responded “Y’all ready to go or you want to stay and leave the apartment for myself tonight?” He asked. “I can stay the night here” Kuvira said slightly rising her hand. “At least someone won’t be complaining about my driving abilities” The blonde guy commented as the tan skin girl smacked his shoulder “I’m just saying the truth!” He complained as he rubbed his shoulder from the sudden hit and Opal rolled her eyes. “Are you sure you want to stay? Opal asked. “It’ll only be one night, no biggie” Kuvira said with a wink. “Alright, we’ll see you tomorrow at school then” Dyx said before leaving with Opal. “See you tomorrow, Braids” Korra said giving him a bro fist. “If you have some juicy gossip, let me know” Dyx said with a wink. “I’ll be the first one to let you know, light eyes” Asami said with a slight smile. “Got it, A” and with all that being said, Dyx and Opal left the Sato Estate and headed back to the apartment.
