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.

"W-what?"

"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
