Isabelle was making coffee one morning when Lily came in the kitchen with a yawn and smiled at Isabelle.
Lily then stood in front of Isabelle with a calculating look.
"Izzy, are you interested in Basil at all?" she asked, making her friend look at her in confusion.
"What you mean interested?"
"I mean, interested, interest." Lily said, wiggling her eyebrows. Isabelle finally understood what she meant and blushed.
"No, Lily, I'm not." she said, making Lily grin.
"Goody because I am."
"Because he's such a nerd and I ain't so sociable. He's much more of a challenge."
"So, Ratigan isn't?" Isabelle said with a smile, making the blonde shake her head.
"Not really. He's pretty...predictable. He's the suave, dark gentleman. Totally predictable." she said with a grin, "Besides, I know you are totally into him."
Isabelle pulled back, blushing as she tried to speak.
"I'm not interested in him at all!" Isabelle sputtered.
"Interested in who?"
They looked at the doorway and saw Ratigan walked in. He raised an eyebrow when Isabelle blushed and looked down while Lily just grinned. He shrugged and gave Isabelle back the book.
"Oh, you finished Misery?" she asked, seeing him nod, "What you think?"
"It was very...disturbing." he said, "The characterization of Annie was very..."
He fell silent as he tried to find the right words.
"Creepy?" Isabelle suggested.
"Frightening." he said, The ax scene made me cringe."
"Yeah, you know they made a movie out of this book."
"Yeah, except in the ax scene, they toned it down to a sledgehammer." she said, " She hit his foot with it and it went sideways."
Both Ratigan and Lily cringed from the thought while Isabelle grimaced.
"Yeah, my legs hurt after I saw that." she said with a nod. The, they heard a door opened followed by a yawn. Lily smiled deviously to herself.
"Basil's awake." she purred, then leaving the room. Isabelle grimaced to herself and yelled out;
"Lily, please! Don't break him!"
