I’ve decided to take up this challenge, it’s a writing challenge. I have to do some catch up but I’ll have it all done in time:) Unlike the Rainbow challenge, this one is going to be continuous in the sense that the characters are going to remain the same and develop throughout the month. A little background story the main characters will be Gabriel, Vivienne, and Charlotte. Gabriel and Vivienne will be the character of your classic “best friends but we are really in love” story and Charlotte….I haven’t decided what I’m doing with her yet. Of course I have to throw some angst in there ^.^ Happy ending though, I promise.
1. (Fri) Sun
Bright rays of sunlight poured into the room as Gabriel tugged the curtains to the side. The swooshing noise of the curtains gliding to the side roused Vivienne and she lifted her head up slightly with an open eye to see who opened the curtain and groaned.
“You know I’m not a morning person,” she snapped.
Gabriel strolled away from the window with a smirk and leaned against the headboard of her bed.
“You’ve lived with me long enough to know that I am a morning person,” he refuted softly. Gabriel didn’t have enough energy to get into an argument with her, even if this was going to be a playful disagreement.
In fact, he never seemed to.
Arguing with Vivienne was like talking to the wall, she wouldn’t change her stance even when she was dead wrong. But Gabriel was softening her, at least he liked to believe so in his mind.
“We have things to do Vivi, and I can’t do any of those things while you sleep all day.”
Vivienne sat up and rolled her eyes at his nickname for her. It made her sound like she was 12 and not 22. Though her nickname gave her permission to poke with him a bit, even if he wouldn’t find it funny. But Vivienne was in a rebellious mood this morning.
“I don’t think you going on a lunch date with your girlfriend requires my assistance or even my presence,” she mumbled to herself. Vivienne froze when she realized her statement came out oddly worded and she watched Gabriel tense up.
Gabriel smoothed his already wrinkled free shirt, which Vivienne knew was a sign she had gotten under his skin, and he cleared his throat. She heard him take a deep breath, meaning he was thinking about the next thing he was going to say.
Vivienne swung her legs over the side of the bed, knocking a few pillows on the ground with her feet, and stared at her brightly colored toes in an effort to divert the conversation. Things out-of-place drove Gabriel insane.
“You’re making a mess,” he said as he went to pick up the pillows. Vivienne pushed a lone pillow farther away from Gabriel’s reach and he sighed.
“Vivienne.” His tone said he wasn’t in the mood to play but Vivienne wasn’t done.
“You’re no fun. Always serious, serious, serious, waking people up unnecessarily with that damn sunlight in the morning! I wish it would rain, you sleep like a baby in the morning when it does,” she said with a slight inflection on the last part.
“Vivienne, this conversation has dragged on too long. I’ll be in the kitchen if you decide to do something productive with your life today.”
Gabriel wasted no time exiting the room, but he was sure to arrange the pillows he did pick up back on the bed in their appropriate place. Vivienne waited till the door closed and she promptly knocked them back on the ground.
