You guys said yes so…here’s the next part of my Raye gifsets.
Ruby startled in surprise at the soft greeting and almost dropped the plates in her hands. She looked up to see Faye standing by the pantry door, leaning against the wall with her arms crossed. “Faye.”
Faye stopped leaning against the wall and moved closer to Ruby who quickly set the plates down and straightened up. “You’ve been avoiding me.”
“No, I…I haven’t.” Ruby feebly denied. “I’ve been really busy with…with work.”
“We need to talk about this, about you.” Faye said in a hushed voice. “You can’t just wolf out on me and not expect me to have questions.”
“There’s nothing to talk about.” Ruby said uncomfortably. “It doesn’t matter anymore.”
“You’re not in the least bit curious about how I avoided being turned into wolf food?” Faye asked expectantly. Ruby was silent, unable to admit that she wasn’t curious about it. The thought had been plaguing her mind since the incident a week or so ago. “Let me buy you a drink after your shift.”
“I can’t tonight, I’m…busy.” Ruby lied. “Busy with um…”
“With me,” another voice announced. Ruby glanced to her left in time to see Belle slide up to. Her surprised rendered her motionless as Belle curled around her waist and lightly pulled her close. “It’s girls’ night.”
“Girls’ night.” Faye echoed skeptically Taking in the way Belle was pressed against Ruby’s side realization set in with a gut-wrenching stab of hurt. “Oh, I see…” she looked away to hide what she was sure to be a pained look on her face. With a quick glance back at Ruby she forced herself to walk away.
