“Dyx, are you alright?” Opal asked as she saw Dyx sitting on thee couch completely awake. It was 5:30am and it seemed that the blonde guy had been awake a few hours earlier. They usually wake up at six o’clock to be at school at seven sharp, but the fact that the Dyx was awake earlier, or that he probably didn’t slept the other night, concerned her. “Peachy” Dyx simply responded. “Since when are you awake?” The tan skin girl asked quirking an eyebrow and crossing her arms. “I couldn’t sleep last night” The blonde guy said in response turning around to look at her “I drank like three ultra charged coffees yesterday and I haven’t felt sleepy at all” He added. He wasn’t lying though, drinking more than one ultra charged coffee gives him trouble sleeping, but why he did that? The answer is simple, undone homework. “Why don’t you stay home today?” Opal suggested “Knowing you well, you’ll end up falling asleep in an important class” She pointed out. “I spent all night finishing all my homework to not assist to class today” Dyx slightly protested. “I can send the homework to Korra if you’re worried about it too much” She said sitting next to him. “Why Korra?” He asked quite confused. “Cause I’m staying here as well” She responded. “If you’re gonna stay here because of me, let me tell you that I can take care of myself. It won’t be my first time alone here” Dyx mentioned. “I’m completely aware of that Dyxie, but I didn’t had a good night sleep either” Opal said in response. “If that’s the case, very well then” He said with a shrug “I’m gonna call Korra” He added while grabbing his phone from the center table. After communicating with Korra and telling her the whole situation, everything was settled so they could stay the day.
Dyx and Opal had fell asleep on the same bed cuddling, spooning to be more precise. Opal woke up first as the blonde guy was in a deep sleep. “Told you so, sleepyhead” Opal said with a giggle as she got up from the bed.
Just so you know, cuddling in the spoon position is kinda common. My mom likes to cuddle with me all the time… she’s the big spoon by the way, I might be a fully grown man and she still likes to do that with me… I got too personal didn’t I? Keep reading, I won’t distract you anymore.
A while later, Dyx woke up and sat up rubbing off the sleepiness from his face “I need coffee” He said to himself in a raspy voice as he got up from the bed and headed to the kitchen. Opal was sitting on the counter near the sink while drinking a cup of coffee when the blonde guy came in. “Morning Dyxie” Opal said placing down her cup of coffee. “Mornin’ sugar cube” Dyx said in response as he opened the fridge. “I brewed some coffee, if you want some” The tan skin girl commented and Dyx quickly closed the fridge. “How come you know what I want sometimes?” The blonde guy asked as he opened the cabinet to reach a coffee mug. “It only took me two summers to know you perfectly” The tan skin girl responded with a shrug. “Am I really that predictable?” Dyx asked rhetorically as Opal hopped off the counter and walked closer to him. “Maybe” Opal said while tracing her hand through the blonde guy’s bare back. “Why you like to do this with me?” He questioned looking at her over his shoulder and quirked an eyebrow. “Cause I like to make you nervous, blondie” She said with a wink. “That’s the thing, shorty, you don’t make me nervous” Dyx said with a chuckle as he turned around to face her. “Should I be concerned about it?” Opal asked softly caressing the blonde guy’s cheek. “I don’t think so” He simply responded shrugging afterwards. They were like that for five minutes when Dyx suddenly broke the tension between them. “Do you want something to eat?” He asked as he turned around to prepare his coffee. “I already ate something” Opal responded as he reached her cup of coffee. “A sandwich ain’t a proper breakfast, O” The blonde guy said taking her cup of coffee and put it on the microwave along with his. “How did you-” “It took me less than three years to crack you up, sugar cube” Dyx quickly responded before she could even formulate the question. “You win this time, blondie” Opal said in defeat “I’ll have whatever you’re gonna make for yourself.
After having breakfast, Dyx was sitting on the floor in front of the couch while Opal was in his shoulders doing his hair. “For how long are you gonna keep doing my hair?” Dyx asked lookin up at the tan skin girl “I don’t even know it myself” Opal shrugged “Now stay still” She said moving his head making him look at the turned of TV, which he used it to look at her without moving his head and interrupt/ruin her work (he’s using the screen as a mirror in case you’ve been wondering). “Was this the reason why you stayed with me today?” The blonde man asked. “I could barely sleep last night, I needed some extra time to rest” The tan skin girl responded “Making your braids was a bonus” She joked. “You enjoy doing it though” He commented. “It’s quite entertaining” She said in return. They stayed in silence for a long while when the blonde guy got up forgetting the fact that Opal was on his shoulders. The tan skin girl yelped and held on Dyx’s head to not fall. “How about a warning next time, ass” Opal said slightly pissed at his sudden action. “Sorry, not sorry” Dyx said with a shrug as he went to the kitchen to get something to drink. “You’re so fucking stupid sometimes” She growled and crossed her arms. “Do you want something to drink, sugar cube?” He asked ignoring the insult. “Give me that watermelon juice you bought yesterday, jellybean” Opal said placing her hands on top of the blonde guy’s head. “Jellybean? Why jellybean?” The blonde man asked looking up at her. “Just give me the fucking watermelon juice” The tan skin girl said as she began to loose her patience with him. “You know that your life is on the edge, right? I could drop you in any moment”. Dyx threatened. “I’ll yank your hair in the process” Opal said in return while Dyx opened the fridge and grabbed the watermelon juice.
While those two were fighting, or something like it, Kuvira had arrived early to the apartment. “Hey g- what the hell is going on here?” Kuvira asked while looking at them. “We’re playing Jenga” Dyx responded sarcastically and Opal smacked his head “That’s it, I had it with you” He said as he got near the couch and dropped Opal. “You’re a dead man!” Opal yelled. “You know what? I’m just gonna go with Korra and Asami, bye” Kuvira said quickly walking out of the apartment as she knew that things won’t end up pretty there.
