[Kneels down and moves Baxter’s mouth, making a goofy voice pretending to be Baxter] I ain’t fat! I’m fluffy! [Mark chuckles and stands back up.] Baxter is a pyrenees. Boy’s gonna be a big’n.
[Scratches the back of his head again and smiles the dopiest smile Chelsea’s probably ever seen on him.] He sure seems to like puppies. He loves Baxter, and Baxter loves him. Prolly cuz Baxter’s big enough to stand on his hind legs and give Hiro hugs and kisses.
He’s already big enough to cuddle! Must be great, huh boy? *Laughs, scratching the sides of his neck.*
He sounds like a great guy~! *Beams, nodding.* And it looks like he’d pass my test pretty easily. *Smiles lopsidedly. She quickly looks up when an idea pops into her head.* How about you invite him to the play date?! That way it would be less formal!
Oh please, he is the smartest dumb dog I’ve ever met. Isn’t that right Baxxy? [Baxter barked at the sound of his name being mentioned. He immediately rolled over and stared at the two. Mark looked back at Chelsea.]
You’d love ‘m. He’s real sweet. [He cocks a brow and grins] What test? Whaddya gotta test ‘m on? [Goes into gushy boyfriend mode] How good he can cook? How nice he is? How utterly sweet and amazing he is- oh my goddess I’m such a sap.
*Reaches out to rub at the puppy’s belly.* Looks like you’re getting fat though, Baxxy! You better get in shape before meeting Brandy~ *Giggles, shaking her head.*
Look at you! You’re so smitten! *Brings her palm to her lips, chuckling into it.* There’s a little more to it than that! *Counts on her fingers.* I wanna know if he’s committed or not, if he likes puppies or not and yes, how good he can cook.
((I’m so sorry for neglecting Chelsea guys but well I can’t stress the fact that uni is taking over my life enough. I literally have no time for anything anymore. I don’t wanna drop though so I’ll try my best to be as active as I can. As always, I’m really sorry for not being so active. :( Thanks for putting up with me guys. <3))
[Baxter immediately perks at the sound of ‘play’ and his tail begins to wag a bit as he looks up at Chelsea. Mark laughs.] Hey that’s a possibility! But Baxter is sooooo dumb, he prolly wouldn’t know what to do, and Chels we have more than enough space for pups on both our farms! ‘sides if someone wants some the babies they can take them to good homes.
[He chuckles and rolls his eyes at her when she starts gushing.] Yeah it is preeeetty cute. And chickadee you are stuck with me ‘til we die. [He pauses a minute, closing his eyes and shaking his head with a smile.] Well. Alright. His name is Hiro and I actually really like him. Dunno if you two met yet though.
*Giggles, crouching down to scratch Baxter behind the ears. Before Mark could finish his sentence, Chelsea frowned and placed both her hands on the puppy’s ears.* Mark! He’s not dumb! He’s the smartest little cutie out there. Aren’t you Baxter~? *Removes her hands from his ears to stroke his head, giggling.*
*Nods slowly.* Hm, you’re right! We could also give some of them to Julia and Mirabelle! They’d help find good homes for them.
*Shakes her head quickly.* No, we haven’t! How about you introduce me to him? I think I’m gonna like him!! *Stands up, smoothing out her shirt while trying to look serious.* Though he’s gotta pass my test first. *Crosses her arms over her chest.*
|Ever get something stuck in your hair or up your nose as a child?|
I did, actually! I stuffed a peanut up my nose when I was seven. *Chuckles, shaking her head.* My mom managed to pull it out in time, though!
Yeah Bax is actually real smart too! He learned how to give me his paw and roll over in like two hours. It was friggin sweet. And I think I have the money to buy a horse but I don’t know where to get one and- [It finally registers in Chelsea’s head that he mentioned that he went on a date. He laughs and rubs the back of his neck.]
It was earlier this month, feel kinda sad I don’t remember the exact date. But like we hung out at my house and cooked together, then watched a movie that I was a gigantic wuss over. We also went on another one where we both failed miserably at ice skating. And no way in hell am I tellin you more. [Laughs.]
Awwwww~! You should bring him over for a play date with Brandy! She knows a trick or two herself. *Smiles confidently, nodding.* Oh, oh! *Eyes widen* What if they end up liking each other?? What if- what if they fall in loooooove~? *Places a finger on her chin.* who’s gonna keep their puppies?
*Places both her hands on her cheeks as the color in them rose, breath quickening with excitement.* THAT. IS. SO. CUTE! *Squeals, covering her face entirely while gushing over how adorable she thought the whole thing was. After calming down she folded her arms over her chest and sighed.* Man I wish I had someone I could do all that with. *Exhales slowly, smiling as she cast her gaze on her shoes for a few seconds before looking back at Mark.* But till then I’ve got you, haven’t I~?
*Nudges him with her elbow.* Come on tell me who it is Markyyy~
|What food is currently in your kitchen right now?|
Hmmm let’s see- *Walks over to her kitchen, observing the food on the counter before starting to count on her fingers.* A sliced loaf of bread, some peanut butter, a jar of cookies and- *Leans against the counter to get a better look.* A couple of apples.
|What is one thing that makes you smile no matter what?|
My Momma’s voice. *The conners of her lips curve up in a sad smile.* Her voice always cheers me right up whenever I hear it~! It has this nice warmth to it that always manages to perk me up.
