What was Leonard to do on a weekend? Mess with Mischa? Do battle with the dog? Set his neighbor's house on fire? Nope. He was going to sit down and play some video games. Or at least, he was. For it seems as though something was missing. Someone had stolen the sacred game system. Planning to go on an epic adventure to recover it, it was cut short when he turned around and saw who had it.
"Amanda? How did you get in here?"
"You left the door unlocked." Amanda said pointing to it.
"Son of a-"
"The reason I took this thing, is because you don't ever listen to me when you are playing."
Leonard sighed. "Fine. What is it that you want?"
Amanda gently put the game down. "Have you noticed something different about the club?"
"Different? I'm not sure what's so different. Kody is still Kody, Mischa is still his cold self, and I'm still a real life troll. I really don't get what you mean by different."
"I mean, what's conspired the last few weeks." Amanda stated.
"What? Like Debora suddenly popping in? Kitty finally having a girlfriend? Doesn't seem THAT new to me, only slightly."
"That's the thing though. Everyone seems to be getting really close with each other. I mean Kitty finally has someone, and Mischa gets along well with Debora. We've become a good group."
"Well that's good. I'm not sure why you may take issue with that. Everyone is happy, and everyone has someone they enjoy being around. And I'm sure Kody has someone he's not telling us and that I'll have to tie him to the ceiling to get out of him. Overall, I think we are a very successful club." Leonard stated proudly.
"I bet you'd be concerned if Kitty was with anyone other than Melanie. You wouldn't trust a new girl with your precious Kitty."
"Hey, I look out for Kitty. She's like my little sister. That's why anyone bothers her, they get a snapped jaw."
"That's a good trait to have. I'm glad you are protective of her. Just try not to go too far." Amanda said.
"As long as she's happy, I am too. But from the looks of your face, something is troubling you. Is someone bothering you?"
"No, it's not something like that. No one is picking on me and everything has been moving along swimmingly. And I'm very happy for our fellow club members."
Leonard raised an eyebrow. "Why do I have a nervous feeling from this?"
Amanda wouldn't make eye contact. She just turned away, and looked a bit depressed. She didn't say anything either. Leonard simply asked a question but never got an answer, and was confused while thinking in his head before coming to a conclusion.
"Woah woah, wait a minute. You're lonely aren't you? That's why you are so bothered."
Amanda still didn't say anything. She wouldn't look him in the eye either.
"It's not that you don't enjoy seeing our club member's happiness, but that you see a kind of happiness you currently don't have. I think I understand now. Have you really been talking with me because of the whole Debora thing, or was that an excuse?"
Amanda finally turned around. "I did mean it when I wanted to know what Debora was up to." Amanda's voice was slightly uneasy, implying that it was only half true. It took a few minutes before it hit him.
"You...are attracted to...me?"
Amanda turned her back to Leonard, completely hiding her face from him.
"Well...this is certainly unexpected. I mean, me of all people. I know we don't really have a lot of males in the club, or at least available ones, but me? Why? You know how everyone views me. I'm a good friend, but a bit of a hot head. Most of my actions are based on negative things. Anger, hatred, getting petty revenge on someone. Is that really something you'd enjoy?"
"Please, don't constantly trash your image as if you don't have any positive factors." Amanda said.
"Positive eh? Enlighten me."
Amanda slightly turned her head around, looking over her shoulder. "You said it yourself right? You'd always protect Kitty. You would never let anyone harm her, or take advantage of her. You are like her big brother. For someone who's not even related to you, to view you as a brother to protect her...that's something I have not seen yet."
Amanda finally turned around to face Leonard. "You have many positive traits, some you don't even acknowledge yourself. You dwell on the negatives too much. You are too pessimistic. You try to fight those who give you or your friends an issue. You always think of what could go wrong instead of how we could improve. And let's not forget that temper. But deep down you have good traits that you are even blind to, but you seem to display them almost unconsciously, as if you don't even know you did them."
Leonard had nothing to say. He wanted to, knowing how he likes to run his mouth. But this time, there wasn't a proper response for what Amanda had to say. He was dumbfounded. Amanda slowly got closer to him while he was thinking.
"Deep inside you, is a very selfless man. The Leonard who defends his friends before himself. The one who cares about the happiness of his friends before his own. You have displayed this many times, but you fail to even realize it. That's the Leonard, I've grown so found of." Amanda gave him a gentle kiss.
Leonard simply stared at Amanda. "Well um...this event was certainly...eventful? I don't even know how to respond to this."
Amanda sighed. "Leonard, you really need to just accept my feelings and stop trying to always be a smart ass."
"Feisty woman eh? I can tell you are gonna give me trouble."
"Are you...flirting with me? I can't tell if you are being sarcastic anymore." Amanda said.
"What can I say? The ladies love me."
Amanda glared slightly. "There better not be more ladies involved. I won't stand for it."
Before Amanda could do anything further, Mischa walked in. "Oh, hi Amanda. Did Leonard let you in?"
Unfortunately, while Amanda said yes, Leonard said no at the exact same time, possibly trying to hide the fact they were doing anything. This confused Mischa.
"Is it a yes or a no?" He asked.
"Amanda is like a ninja. She sneaks in on you when you aren't expecting it. I almost didn't survive, but she quickly fell for me- uh to me. Sorry, got tongue tied."
Confused? In awe? Currently eating toast? Leonard actually did something that didn't involve video games. And with a girl! Well, they really didn't do much. But hey at least he did something! Tune in next time with ktulu, which I'm sure will explain what exactly happened to Kitty and Melanie, and maybe more.
