Fenchurch and Hiro have a little chat
Posted June 21, 2006 by Galatia9 and beamlette
Fenchurch, can I ask you something?
Hiro: I like them a
lot so far. I always wondered why you had such an unusual name, and what it
meant, and where it came from. I mean, other than from your mom and dad. You
know what I mean.
Hiro: *chuckles* I
can just imagine you doing that. No one ever made fun of my name, I guess it's pretty ordinary, like
"George" or "David" would be in English. But... I like
your name, even if it is unusual. It's funny how associating a name with a
person makes it suddenly special to you.
Hiro: *shrugs* If
you take it apart, it's just random words. Like, "hiro"
is just a measurement. You know how six feet of water is called a fathom?
That's what it means, "fathom".
Hiro: What's the
matter, am I unfathomable? *grins*
Fenchurch: No -- no, you're, um, fathomable -- if
that's a word. On the other hand, one should never assume, either...
Hiro: I, uh... I wanted
to talk to you about something so that... we're not making assumptions about
each other any more. I wanted to tell you... I think I made a mistake.
*doesn't meet her eyes* Remember when I introduced myself to you?
Well... I said something I shouldn't have said. I told you I wasn't looking
for a girlfriend... and it's true, I wasn't... not at the time. But I'm afraid
that when I said that... it might have made you not take me seriously, not as
anything more than a friend. And now... well... I sort of wish that I hadn't
said that, because... because now I wish you WOULD think of me as more than a
friend. *hastily* I don't mean you have to right now, not right this minute,
but... maybe later?
Hiro: Uh... what?
Did you say... "yes"?
Hiro: I don't think
we have to worry about THAT, do you?
did I tell you? Today's my birthday...
By the way, today really IS Hiro's birthday... he came home to me a year ago today. -- Linda S. (galatia9)
