Summary: If you love it so much, why don’t you marry it?

Shinichi had his eleven-year-old nose buried in a mystery novel again, and Ran was getting annoyed.

Honestly—the boy couldn’t put the darn books down for love or money. She was standing right there, having come over to hang out for a while, and he wouldn’t stop reading long enough to even acknowledge her presence. It wasn’t that she minded him having hobbies or anything like that, but…hello? Common manners, anyone?

She was honestly trying to decide whether she should clobber him…or just leave and see how long it took him to notice that she was gone and call her to ask why she’d left. At which point she would yell at him.

But it drove her nuts. It seemed like she was always playing second fiddle to his stupid mystery novels and Sherlock Holmes and all that dump stuff! Shinichi was a nice guy, and he could be a really good friend…but he was just a little bit obsessed about mysteries, and it tended to cause some nice friction between them.

Finally, Ran got fed up with being ignored. And she decided that she wasn’t going to go down without a fight. She grabbed the book out of his hands. “SHINICHI!”

He jumped a mile, leaving her to wonder if he really hadn’t known that she was here. “Ran? What was that for?”

“I’m here! Pay attention to me!” she said, folding her arms with his book still in her hand.

Shinichi just stared at her. “But…but…I love that book!” He reached at her to try and grab the book out of her hand.

Ran dodged and stepped back, keeping the book just out of his reach. They glared at each other for a moment before she decided it just wasn’t worth it, and tossed the book at him; she watched as he juggled it for a moment before finally catching it. “If you love it so much, why don’t you just marry it?”

She expected a witty retort or an angry comment leading that would open the door to an argument or something like that. Instead, he just kind of stared at her with this weird look on his face. And he was going awfully red…

Ran blinked. “Shinichi?”

He shook himself. “W-what?”

“…never mind,” she sighed. “So do you want to do something or not?”

PS. A rather long time ago, I asked a bunch of my friends to give me characters or pairings and prompts to go with them. I wrote them all down on my Page o’ Plunnies to work through as I got to them. And my dear friend ran_mouri82 gave me this one for Shinichi and Ran. After a few…not-humorous ones, we get something a little on the lighter side of Sears.

Thanks for reading, all! Much love!

Tsk. Shinichi--typical of him. Still, I can relate: I read a Christie novel today, and it was really addictive! XD Haven't read any Doyle stories yet, though; I don't think I can take the old-style English.

And yes; that must have caught him off-guard. Hah.

(Okay; I suppose I should re-introduce myself. Although we weren't close, I did friend you before. Do you remember ivory_petals? Haha! I'm bolded now!)

I'll be adding candyfics and candy--chan, too. Don't mind it?

Hi! Saw your account was gone--glad to see you back :3

Oooh, which Christie novel did you read? My favorite is And Then There Were None. That's a twisted story ~♥♥♥

Thanks, hon! And yup, feel free to add away :D

Gah, I didn't like that account. I fell into the temptation of copying the fact that other people have fic-journals, so now I have two LJs, with moonlitcrescent being teh one for ficcage. Both are still empty, though. Life's been really hectic and our computer has caught a virus that really slowed it down. (As if it were a human being that got colds!)

It was the first Agatha Christie book I got--"Five Little Pigs" (formerly published as "Murder in Retrospect"). Have you read that? The horrible thing about it was that I loved spoilers, and I found myself accidentally spotting the name of the killer on the last page. That was a heartbreaker, but nevertheless, the adventure was fun. Right now, I'm exploring "The Body in the Library" with Miss Marple.

And add I shall! XD
