Setup To Settle

”...You're really handsome, you know that right?” Wide-eyed. “I'm sorry, what?” “You're attractive... hasn't anyone ever told you that before?” “I'm sorry is this a fucking joke?” “No one's ever told you?” “My family, but they're supposed to say it.” “Well, a lot of us think you're handsome but we just don't say anything 'cause we're scared.” “...How the fuck am I scary?” “Cause you're attractive.” “Well... goddamn I wish someone had told me.” “Well, now you know... what are you gonna do about it?” “...Do you wanna go on a date?” A smile. “Is that just because I told you you're hot?” “Honestly... yes.”
