“Next one, next one. I really couldn't care less. I might need to let some one else take over for a while, I'm getting a little bored with this whole routine.” Yuffie stretched as far up as she could then slumped over and sighed. “But whatever, let's just get this done.” She tapped you on the shoulder. “Come on up.” After grabbing the hat, Yuffie turned on her heels and held it out for you without saying another word.
“Maybe you should take a break Yuffie, go get some ice cream or something. Tifa or Aerith could take over for a while.” Deciding on an item quickly because of Yuffie's current attitude, you lifted up a pair of very, familiar sunglasses. “Oh Rude, it's your turn.”
Rude straightened his tie and stood from the couch. He walked briskly towards you and retrieved his sunglasses, placing them inside his coat pocket. “Let's go.”
“You're just going to have a blast with mister professional, serious man here. He hardly even talks.” Yuffie smacked her forehead and stumbled to the closet. “This is just going to be an awkward disaster, I can feel it in my materia.” She leaned against the door, then slowly opened it, letting you and Rude inside. “If things get too awkward, just knock, I'll let you two out.” Yuffie then closed the door just as slowly as she had opened it, not bothering to lock it.
You weren't going to let things be awkward. You, had a plan. “Can I try on your sunglasses? Please, please, please, please?” You got on your knees, right in front of Rude and held your hands up in a begging fashion.
His hands immediately went to the sides of his glasses, holding them securely on his face. “No, you may not.”
“What, why not? I know you have extras. I saw you put that one pair in your suit.” You moved closer to him, feeling through his suit jacket for the extra pair of sunglasses. “Can I wear those? I promise I won't break them, and you're not wearing them anyway.” Rude tried swatting your hands away, but he was doing a really bad job of it. “Having a hard time seeing my hands?” You laughed evilly as you finally found one of the extra pairs of glasses he had stashed in his suit. Before he could stop you, you put the sunglasses on and struck a pose. “Oh yes, I feel awesome now.”
“Give those back now please. You don't need them.” Rude held out his hand and made a give me gesture with his fingers.
“You don't need them either Rude, it's dark in here already.” You crossed your arms, unwilling to give into him.
Rude shook his head. “I don't use them to block out sunlight. I use them to hide my eyes. You don't need them, because you have no reason to hide your eyes. Now, give me.”
You slowly removed the sunglasses from your face and placed them back in his hand. With your vision now clearer, you could see a slight blush on Rudes face. “Sorry I stole them. I've just always wanted to wear them. They make you look, all cool and stuff.” You twiddled your thumbs in embarrassment. Rude said nothing else until after the door opened.
“Guess you kept things from getting weird. Good job, you'll have to teach me your secret.” Yuffie turned on the light and opened the door fully. “You may now leave the closet.”
As you stood to leave, Rude grabbed hold of your arm and placed something in your hand. “Don't tell anyone.” Though you couldn't see his eyes, you could tell he was giving you an intense stare. “This is our secret.”As he walked out of the closet, you looked down at your hand. He'd given you a pair of his prized sunglasses.
