deltanudaughter: (So Much Better)
[personal profile] deltanudaughter
(Continued from here.)

Elle's space in the Harvard dormitories wasn't that grand. Since she was a grad student, she had managed to get a space by herself. Which was a relief. She soon realized shortly after starting law school that not everyone could handle this much pink in a small space. Nor a chihuahua no matter how well behaved he was.

She just hoped Ash wouldn't mind.

She slowly opened the plain wooden door and turned on the light to reveal the brightness within. "Well, here it is."

This.

This was even more pink than his other self's daughter's room. If that even makes sense. (Emily's in elementary school, for cryin' out loud!)

But it does fit Elle's personality. So his eyes will learn to adjust.

"Not bad," he says, trying his best not to squint. Or grimace.

It's her signature color, Ash. Don't be hatin'.

Elle walks in and throws down her purse on her desk (covered with a laptop, printouts, law books and other school supplies). She turns back to look at Ash. "So...um...feel free to make yourself comfortable."

Ashley awkwardly stands in the doorway, boots teetering over the threshold as he glances around for a spot.

He could be cute and flop right on the edge of the bed. Or he could be even more awkward and choose the floor.

He chooses the floor.

Elle wanders farther into the room, looking over one side of her bed. "Brusier? You awake?"

The tiny dog pops his head up from his dog bed and begins wagging his tail as soon as he sees Elle. She picks him up from his bed and carries him over to Ash's spot on the floor. She crouches down and holds Bruiser up. "Bruiser, this is Ash."

"We meet at last," he says, sitting up straight in his spot on the floor as he comes face to face with the infamous Bruiser. He may or may not be glaring (don't worry - it's a playful one - he still doesn't understand why someone would have a dog that small...).

"Rat-dog," he mutters, hopefully quiet enough not for Elle to notice.

Date: 2009-10-28 07:28 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deltanudaughter.livejournal.com
"What was that?" Elle asks, looking back at Ash.

Bruiser looks up at Ash and begins wagging his tail. His eyes pretty much say Are you here to pay attention to me?

"You want to hold him?"

Date: 2009-10-28 07:29 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] smartemployee.livejournal.com
"Nothing," he quickly murmurs, clearing his throat.

Ash lets out a sigh. "Not really, but you're going to make me anyway, aren't you?" Admit it, Elle.

"Yes," she says flat out as she puts Bruiser in Ash's lap. "Can you at least try to tolerate him? Please?"

Date: 2009-10-28 07:33 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] smartemployee.livejournal.com
"Tolerating away..." he trails off, sighing again as he gets a lap full of tiny rat-dog.

It's looking at him.

And he's staring right back at it.

"Hi there." Pause. "Bruiser."

Date: 2009-10-28 07:36 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deltanudaughter.livejournal.com
"I'll leave you two to it, then," she says, standing back. "I need to check on something real quick."

As Elle walks over to her laptop, Bruiser begins wagging his tail at Ash and giving him the same attention asking look.

Date: 2009-10-28 07:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] smartemployee.livejournal.com
With a roll of his eyes, Ash lets out an aggravated groan and then rests his chin in his good hand, frowning down at the dog. "Yeah huh."

The cute's not going to work on him.

At least not right away.

Bruiser is a persistent little dog though. He climbs onto Ash's leg and begins to lick his good hand.

Date: 2009-10-28 07:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] smartemployee.livejournal.com
He sighs again, frowning even more. Sulking isn't going to help anything... especially his chances with his girl.

So. He lets his hand skritch behind Bruiser's ear. It takes a bit of coercing, but he does it.

Date: 2009-10-28 07:49 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deltanudaughter.livejournal.com
Bruiser lets out a little satisfied noise as he curls up on Ash's leg. He loves this.

"Aww...he likes you," Elle says, looking over from her desk.

Date: 2009-10-28 08:07 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] smartemployee.livejournal.com
"The feeling's mutual," Ash replies. "I guess." He keeps scratching behind Bruiser's ear.

Elle closes her laptop and walks back over to sit with Ash on the floor. "See? I told you he was a good dog."

Date: 2009-10-28 08:14 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] smartemployee.livejournal.com
He gives the top of Bruiser's head a quick ruffle before scratching behind his ear again. Then he lets his hand rest on the dog's back. "He's okay," he replies, smirking just a bit. Anything to give her a hard time.

Date: 2009-10-28 08:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deltanudaughter.livejournal.com
Bruiser looks up at Elle and gives a short bark. Elle laughs. "You say that now. I think you and Bruiser will be getting along just well in the future."

Date: 2009-10-28 08:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] smartemployee.livejournal.com
"Yeah, yeah." Ash rolls his eyes, playfully scratching Bruiser's back. "Not making any promises myself."

Date: 2009-10-28 08:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deltanudaughter.livejournal.com
Bruiser falls over onto his side, requesting Ash to scratch his sides and his belly.

Elle reaches over and pets Bruiser's head. "Just saying..."

Date: 2009-10-28 08:23 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] smartemployee.livejournal.com
He smiles - not at Elle, but at the puppy - and lets Bruiser have all the skritches to his tummy that he wants.

Date: 2009-10-28 08:26 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deltanudaughter.livejournal.com
Bruiser lets out another satisfied noise as Ash scratches his belly and Elle has a defiant smirk on her face. Hook, line, sinker.

"You want anything," she calmly asks Ash now that he's warmed up to Bruiser.

Date: 2009-10-28 08:29 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] smartemployee.livejournal.com
Ash leans over to her at that question, tilting his head. "A little sugar?" He pouts. "Please?"

Date: 2009-10-28 08:31 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] deltanudaughter.livejournal.com
Elle smirks a bit when Ash does that. She should have seen that one coming. "How can I say no when you ask me like that?"

She leans over, kissing Ash gently on the lips.

Date: 2009-10-28 08:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] smartemployee.livejournal.com
"Good answer," he murmurs against her lips before pressing firmly into the kiss. He gives Bruiser a quick pat to the back before bringing his good hand to cradle the back of Elle's head.
