Cheshire: Just Stop Talking

"I need to talk to you" I said nervously as Sylvester frowned.

Can't say I blame him, I did try to kill him after all. I fidgeted nerrvously, waiting for him to answer me.

"Make it quick" he said harshly and started cutting out white paper hearts, though I could tell he was still paying attention to me. Just about.

"Sylvester, I... I'm sorry about trying to kill you and all. I know saying I didn't know what I was doing sounds like some kind of lame excuse but it's the truth. And about you and Aria... I might not like it but if it's what she wants....and what you want... Well, I guess what I'm trying to say is I won't get in your way. But...there's something you need to know about her... And it's either gonna come from me or her so I just wanted to give you time to prepare and all 'cause it's kind of something big but she'll probably wait till after the wedding and all. I know what she's like, she won't want to cause a scene and-"

"Stop talking" Sylvester said, putting the scissors down harshly.


"Stop talking. You've apologised, that was all you needed to say so...just stop talking, okay?"

"Sylvester, I'm just trying to put things right".

"So stop talking".

I opened my mouth to say something but figured it was probably better to do what he said and stay quiet. I stood nervously watching him for a while before nodding and walking off. I headed upstairs to Aria's room. I'd been sharing the room with her, even though neither of us really slept that much. I sat on the bed, head in my hands and sighed. Today was going to be a long day.

The End
