"Cynthia, can I please ask how long you've been playing that game," Toxic asked, looking annoyed. Her green eyes bored into the back of her loves head, though her voice held no evidence of her silent annoyance.
Cynthia, on the other hand, was completely enthralled. She'd just gotten Final Fantasy XIII, and had been playing for two days straight, and was currently working on the third. "Huh? Oh, I think it's been 53 hours now... Why?"
Toxic just sighed and shook her head. She repositioned herself against the wall beside her bed. "Exactly. Now tell me, what haven't we really done in the last 53 hours?" Her tone was beginning to show signs of her growing annoyance, but Cynthia didn't seem to pick up on it at all.
"Um... Well... Sleep... Talk-" "Exactly," Tox stopped Cynthia mid sentence, sounding extremely annoyed. "We haven't really talked in 53 hours, 26 minutes, and 30 seconds. Not only that, but we haven't kissed, left the house, or slept in the same bed in 53 hours, 26 minutes, and 49 seconds, either. So I'm going to give you a choice."
She paused partly for dramatic affect, but also to make sure Cynthia had paused the game. Luckily for her, she had done just that, and was paying very good attention, staring up at her lover with her back to the game, purple eyes wide with anticipation... and a little fear. "The choice is simple. Either you save that game and quit right now, and get some much needed sleep... Or you keep playing, and you don't get any sex from me for the next 3 months, and you have to sleep on the couch for half that. It's up to you."
The question hung in the air like a bad smell, and even after Toxic had said it, she regretted it a little. But she meant every word, and what she said had needed to be said. As for Cynthia... She was torn between the only person that ever made her feel truly happy and loved... And the single greatest game she'd played in a long time. "Tox..."
She sighed... and turned back towards the screen. Tox sat up straight, ready to launch into a fury when she noticed that Cynthia had only started playing to reach a save point, and was saving her game as quickly as she could.
Toxic knew how much games meant to Cynthia, and how easy it was for her to get lost in them. So for her to choose her over this game so easily meant a lot to her. "Sin..." She smiled warmly at her little love before crawling across the bed and wrapping her strong arms around her shoulders, hugging her tight. "Good choice."
Cynthia giggled nervously as she turned the game off. "W-well... It wasn't that tough... I mean, I only like the game... But I love you." She smiled to herself, wishing she could say more. But she was never very good with words.
Tox licked her neck, purring softly in her ear. "Oh pet, I know... But it's always nice to hear it. I love you too... Now get naked and in this ****ing bed or so help me god."
Cynthia jumped and blushed dark red, nodding quickly. "Y-yes ma'am!"
